but i found them really developed

anonymous asked:

can you write something where it turns out MC is like super young and the entire RFA is like "Oh my god i must protect this small child" or develops familial platonic feelings for them? maybe MC is an orphan? idk. I just want some platonic fluff really. like a Friendship route. a Found Family route. If you don't wanna do it, it's cool just delete this ask!!

oh my god yes. (i’m including V because honestly I think his reaction would be the most amusing of them all.)

Yoosung:

  • He’d be delighted to no longer be the youngest RFA member. 
  • Finally there was someone that looked up to him and it would be great. 
    • That would definitely help motivate him to play less LOLOL (he probably wouldn’t quit completely, but he’d want to be a good role model for MC and couldn’t do that if he was constantly playing games)
  • He’d love to help out with their school work even if it were a subject he was not at all fond of, he’d work hard so that they felt good about what they knew for the assessments that their school had
  • He’d be really protective of them and honestly wouldn’t really mind Seven teasing him as long as he didn’t tease MC 
  • They’d honestly be the little sibling he never had but always desperately wanted. 

Jaehee:

  • She is not the most comfortable around children. It isn’t that she dislikes children, but she really has no idea how to take care of them or how to play with them
  • When she heard that MC was only a teenager that automatically made her uncomfortable simply because they’d be loud and annoying and irresponsible, right? 
  • She’d be shocked to see how hard working and diligent they were
  • She’d also be really protective of them in the sense that nobody, especially Jumin, would be allowed to give them a lot of work. 
  • Jaehee would be insistent on stressing the necessity of sleeping and eating well since they’re still growing 
  • Also if they were ever struggling with school or anything, she’d probably drop everything to help them out because she hates to see them stressed. 

Jumin:

  • He’d be pretty uncomfortable dealing with a child as well (Even though they’d probably be like a teenager he’d still be a bit uncomfortable) 
  • He’s never really spent any time around kids before, even when he was a kid he was more than a little strange and didn’t have too many friends his own age 
  • He’d be shocked by how determined and hardworking they are and how efficiently their work is. 
  • He’d be so nice to them
  • He’s sarcastic and rude to most of the RFA but the moment he realises that they’re so young he becomes super patient with them,
  • He’s so kind If the others are being loud or annoying or if any of them dare to tease MC, Jumin will be so protective 

Zen:

  • He’d be in total shock and would definitely try his best to help them out with their work, both with getting guests for the party and any school work that they could be having trouble with
  • He’d probably feel pretty bad that he couldn’t be more helpful with the schoolwork thing
  • Still he’d definitely be the one to cheer MC up if they were feeling overwhelmed or stressed out
  • I’m getting this feeling that MC might have been a fan of his before and would totally freak out that they were talking to him every day and Zen would find that to be absolutely adorable 
    • I feel like they’d probably cry during the first phone call because like “omg I’m talking to someone famous” and he’d just be so amused 
    • They’d probably be like “I HAVE TO TELL ALL MY FRIENDS”
  • He’s definitely the reassuring friend though

707:

  • He already knew that they were young from the background check so because of that he’d definitely try and stop them from getting too stressed out. 
  • Even with him being constantly stressed out himself, he’d constantly check to make sure that they were sleeping enough and eating well and just taking care of themself in general. 
  • He’d still joke around with them a lot, but he’d be really careful to make sure he didn’t make them uncomfortable
  • I’m not sure if he’d tell the rest of the RFA how old MC was 
  • I feel like he’d probably leave it to MC to tell them, just so he didn’t embarrass them
  • He’d let them know that he knows how old they are either through a phone call or a text message just so they’re both on the same page
  • Honestly I bet they’d already know that he knew how old they were because of the background check. 
  • He’d tease them. He really would try not to and the moment he noticed that he’d upset MC he would stop, but they were just so cute and easy to tease and they always went along with his jokes and pranks and they really understood his sense of humor
  • If they were struggling in school you bet he’d help them out
  • Especially if they were struggling in math or science he’d be the best tutor because not only is he really good at those subjects, but he understands them well enough that he can teach the right stuff, but in a way that’s more fun and easier to learn 
  • He might teach them some programming dependent or not on if they showed any interest, he wouldn’t want to force it upon them, but if they were curious he’d be really excited to help them out. 

V: 

  • He would be horrified. 
  • There is really no other way to put this. 
  • He would be absolutely horrified. 
  • He hired a child to almost single-handedly run a charity party. Sure he could blame Seven for not telling him that MC was so young, or find other circumstances to blame, but he knew, in all honesty that it was his fault that he could not blame anyone but himself
  • He’d be so apologetic to them, honestly to the point where he’d probably visit the apartment himself just to express how sorry he was for putting them in this position 
  • He’d give them the option to leave at any moment (and would probably offer to tell Seven to not restrict their access to the messenger either because really, it wasn’t their fault that they were young and stressed)
  • When they said they wouldn’t leave however, it made him smile
  • He’d definitely offer to help them out in any way that they’d need 
  • “Do you want to work from home?”
  • Done
  • “Do you want to get time off school?” 
  • Done
  • “Do you want this to count for some sort of service hours?” 
  • I’ll call the school myself

I was going through ToA comment section on Amazon and I found these masterpieces. *strong sarcasm*. I’m sorry for this post but I really need to defend Rick Riordan.

First of all… ruin Nico?! Man, Nico has been gay and sassy since the day Rick created him and you can’t tell me otherwise. Also a huge part of his character development is based on Nico dealing with who he his, speaking of his father, Bianca’s death and his feelings for Percy. He learn that he has friends who loves him.  
 
 
I’ll talk a lot about the second pic so let’s start  
 
 
“I can maybe understand Rick wanting to appeal to that crow but I don’t think it needs to be so heavily addressed in a children’s book”  
It’s not “wanting to appeal” it’ representation and YES it needs to be addressed in children’s books. Kids need to know that it’s OK to be LGBTQ+, that they are not broken or sick, that they are loved. There are many queer kids in the world and they need representation as well as hetero, white, black, Oriental, Latino and Muslims kids.  
 
“In the previous novels the exact same characters NEVER gave any indication of being homosexual or bisexual in any way”  
  (I assume s/he’s talking about Nico and Apollo)  
Nico is forced to came out by Cupid, he wasn’t ready, he was still dealing with his sexuality. Nico isn’t the stereotypical homosexual boy and probably this person thinks that gays wear tight clothes and strange bright colors and are feminine in their moves. Yes, he never gave any indication of being homosexual but he never gave any indication of being heterosexual, people just assumed it. People always assume that you are heterosexual because it’s “normal” and if you are queer you have to come out.
This person also wrote that s/he really like mythology but s/he doesn’t know that in the myth of Hyacinthus it’s clear that Apollo is in love with him. Also in Ancient Greece a lot of warriors had a male lover, it was no big deal if they had also a family and sons. 

So please, please, don’t say bullshit.
(I’m sorry for my horrible English but it’s not my first language)

It’s Kind of a Funny Story (2010) - Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck

5 bullets on this film:

  • I think this movie deals with the topic of mental illness very well, without being too heavy, but in a sensitive way. It’s deep and it makes you think a lot, but there are some funny scenes as well. If you ever feel sad, watch this, it’ll make you feel better.
  • Zach Galifianakis and Emma Roberts are great, they really got into their roles. I loved how all the characters were well-developed  and how each one of them represented different mental illnesses.  
  • The musical interludes basically made the entire movie.
  • The setting is basically the same during the whole movie: a psychiatric hospital. However, the colors and the nice cinematography make everything seem cute and not-boring.
  • When I was around 14 I used to get really sad sometimes, so I watched this film and it really helped me. I also read the novel written by Ned Vizzini, which was based on his own life. I recently found out that he commited suicide in 2013 and I am devastated. When you feel sad, please don’t do anything stupid. 
So

I think we’re all pretty sure that Cr1TiKaL is dating that girl with the blonde hair, and I’m just really happy that he found someone he likes who looks so nice (especially after having his last gf cheat on him). And it’s very cute seeing pictures of them on tumblr and things!

But also all of these pictures came from social media posts outside of Cr1TiKaL’s (like the girl’s own Instagram) and we know that he’s a fairly private person … So probably we should give them some privacy and at least not directly message him about his relationship developments or anything, at least until he publicly mentions having a gf in a video or something.

youtube

So the trailer is here.  I truly am hoping they can do a better movie than what we got before but if I am honest this is not really how I wanted the FIRST Justice League movie on screen to assemble. The guy in blue should have been in that line up from the start. He was always a founding member. Them killing him prematurely and unnecessarily so Batman could have development still rankles. The Justice League is about every member and their development within the team. Not one man’s redemption. The idea Superman might just , if he is lucky, be in the last  10-20 minutes of a lengthy movie where the League would have bonded feels sad. Part of the fun of the League is seeing these characters interact and create their dynamics within the team as the movie progresses. Be it they get on or piss each other off. The stranger, out  in the cold, coming in the end is Superman. That just feels so bizarre. I mean what development can he really have? He’s usually the glue of the League. Snyder singing his praises but not allowing Superman to truly earn his place by giving him sparse development is kinda poor treatment of the character. 

 I guess we shall see will it really be Justice League or Batman and his Justice League because no matter how good a trailer looks, it is the movie itself that matters.

They finally let me go home after two weeks in the infirmary. My arm was still in pretty bad shape, but after a week of twice daily cleanings with Denise, she was finally able to stich it up properly. I had to keep my arm in a sling, but being free from the confines of that small room in the infirmary is worth any inconvenience. I had a lot of visitors in the weeks that I was there. Michonne and Judith were almost there as much as Carl. I was really developing a relationship with them both and I almost consider myself a baby expert as opposed to how I was the first night I held Judith.

Carl is basically connected to my hip right now, but I don’t blame him. If he was the one hurt, I’d be the same. Honestly, his protective nature is really hot. His hands are always on me whether it’s on the small of my back or across my shoulders. It makes me feel safe in this messed up world.

Rick, on the other hand, has been watching us from afar. I see him watch us while we play with Judith and while we’re on the porch talking. I don’t have the heart to tell Carl that I think his dad hates me. I know how much he looks up to him. It’s my first day back and I am alone in the house with Carl and Judith.

I was in Judith’s room singing silly songs and using her new blocks that Michonne brought back from a run when I heard the front door shut. Carl was in the shower so I know it wasn’t him. I set Judith in the play pen and walked out into the hall. There, I was face to face with Rick.

“Y/N. Can I speak with you?” His blue eyes looked harsh in the dim lighting of the house and I nodded slowly, following him into his bedroom. I stood close to the door so I could run out and find Carl if I needed to. He paced a few times before he turned to me with a hard look on his face. “Y/N, I know that my son has taken an interest in you.” He paused waiting for a response from me.

“And I him.” I answered without missing a beat. He nodded disappointingly.

“I love my son and I don’t want him to put himself in danger because of some crush he has on a girl. It almost killed him when you were hurt and I don’t want that for him. I want you to go and live with Carol and I don’t want you around here anymore. If you disobey these rules, I will exile you from Alexandria.” His face was cold and I was at a loss for words. Before I could even muster a plea to stay, Carl burst into the room, half naked, fresh out of the shower.

“Y/N, you’re not going anywhere.” Carl growled, before turning to face his father.

“Carl listen-” Rick started, but Carl didn’t let him finish.

“No! You listen! I know you’re bitter about what happened between you and mom, but I will not shy away from love because I could possibly get hurt. I will not end up cold and unforgiving like you. Y/N and I have something that could grow into the kind of love that could beat this world. Mom told me I could beat this world and I truly think that Y/N is the key for me. So you will stay away from her and trust that I know what is best for me.” I stood behind Carl in shock. Did he say love? Does he really feel that strongly for me? I could see that Rick didn’t know what to say either. No one noticed that Michonne was standing in the doorway behind me, with Judith in her arms. Carl finally made the first move, grabbing my hand and taking me down the hall to his room and slamming the door behind us. The last thing I heard was Michonne’s voice yelling at Rick.

Carl’s face was red and he looked like he could kill a hundred walkers by himself right now.

“I can’t fucking believe him. I-,” He chuckled in disbelief, “-I could kill him.” His hand reached up and he flung his sheriff’s hat into the wall in anger and ran a hand through his long hair.

While Carl was fuming, I couldn’t help but want to kiss him. He was so protective and he cared so much and that was all it took for me to give in to the urge to fall for him. He was sitting on the edge of the bed with his head in his hands. I was standing by the dresser admiring this boy. My boy. I glanced down at my arm in the sling and slowly slipped it out and let the sling hit the floor. I walked slowly over to Carl and put a hand on his cheek. He looked up at me in shock when I straddled his lap and immediately placed my lips on his. His hands connected with my hips as mine found his shoulder length hair. I moved my mouth down to his neck and he lifted his head and pecked my lips before reaching for my shirt. I knew where this was heading as soon as my shirt hit the cold floor. His lips found mine like magnets and I was beginning to go with my natural instincts and grind down on his lap. Carl seemed to realize my intentions when I did this.
“Are you sure you’re ready?” He breathed out, tearing his lips from mine.
“Yes, unless you don’t want to?” I said shakily.
“I want to more than anything. I just want to make sure you want this too.” He whispered. Its obvious that we were both virgins since we had only just had our first kiss. Carl was looking me up and down and ground his hands into the skin of my ass. I let out a throaty moan and lunged my face forward and connected our lips again. “I’ll take that as a yes?” He smiled into the kiss and so did I. I climbed off his lap and took a seat next to him on the bed before pulling his face back to mine so I was underneath his broad body. My bra was older and had the clip in the front so Carl easily got it off me.  “So pretty.” He sighed as he connected his mouth to my neck. He started to move south towards my breasts and the butterflies in my stomach erupted. His warm mouth enclosed on my left nipple and I let out a soft moan as I tangled my hand in his long dark locks. One of his hands found a place on my right breast and he shakily massaged it, careful not to hurt me. My hips rolled up into his and his eye moved up and met mine. He smiled cheekily before going back to work on my other breast while his hand moved down toward my shorts. The button on this particular pair was broken so my belt was the only thing holding my shorts to my hips. He couldn’t quite figure out the belt so I pushed him up softly and sat up so I could take the shorts off myself. I fell back against the bed in only my panties and I heard Carl take a sharp breath in. His lip was between his teeth and he looked me up and down again. I wanted him so bad, I basically pulled him on top of me again. He began playing with the waistband, tugging it away from my body so I felt the cold air rush to my heat. I shivered slightly and he pulled his mouth away from the skin of my neck. “May I?” he grinned gesturing to the fabric hanging on my hips. I bit my lip and nodded. Before he pulled them off, he started kissing down my torso. His sloppy kisses moved from the valley in between my breasts, down to my navel. With my panties now out of the way, he placed a kiss right above my needy heat.  Before his mouth could do what I so badly wanted, he climbed off the bed and moved back so he could pull down his shorts and boxers. My eyes trailed up and down his body slowly and I felt my butterflies move south and engulf my core. I realized I was staring at his body longer than necessary, but he didn’t seem to notice. He was just standing at the edge of the bed with a smug grin on his face.
“What?” I cocked my head to the side. He moved forward seductively and kneeled on the bed in front of me.
“I am never letting you go.” He whispered as he grabbed my face in his hands. “I love you.” He sighed before reconnecting our lips and laying us down. His hands were all over my skin, lighting it on fire. I moaned into his mouth when he ghosted over my core. He took that an incentive to pay more attention to that specific area. His middle finger slid up my folds a few times before he determined that I was wet enough for him to push it in.

“How do you know how to do all this?” I wondered. “I mean you’re really ad-ah-vanced for a v-virgin.” I stuttered a bit as he played around with my folds.

“I shared a room with Abraham and Rosita for a month. Let’s just say they weren’t subtle.” He chuckled before shifting focus back onto my core.

Being my first time, I wasn’t sure how it would feel. “Just tell me if I hurt you, okay?” he whispered into my skin. I nodded and he continued his movements. I felt one of his fingers stretch me a little. It was a strange sensation, not painful, not pleasurable. Just strange. He pulled his finger out slowly and slid it up over my clit. I squealed and bucked my hips into his hand. “Shhh, Y/N. We have to be quiet.” I could feel his smile against my neck and then I saw it as he pulled away. “You ready, babe?”
“Yes, more than ready.” I sighed and lifted my hips up a bit. He climbed back over me and kissed my lips softly, passionately. One of his hands moved down to grasp his shaft and pump it a few times. I moaned when his tip grazed over my entrance. He applied a more pressure until he was pushing it between my folds. He was barely inside me and I felt a sharp burning sensation. I made a sharp intake and he completely stopped.
“Did I hurt you? Do you want to stop?” His face was panicked and he searched my face for any sign of pain.
“No, no I’m okay. Just go really slow, alright? I’ll tell you if I need to stop.” I assured him. He nodded and pushed in further. I closed my eyes and tried to ignore the fire that was making its way through my lower abdomen. I held onto his shoulders and suppressed the cries that were threatening to escape my mouth. He pulled back out again and before he could push in, I stopped him.
“Baby, I’m hurting you. I don’t wan-” He went to sit up, but I held him close to me.
“No, I really want to do this. It, it just hurts.” I said, a tear escaping my eye. He kissed my cheek where the tear was and then my forehead.
“I never want to see you in pain.” He choked out.
“It’s going to hurt no matter what. I trust you with this Carl.” I smiled and leaned my head up to kiss his cheeks. “Go ahead baby.” I intertwined our fingers and he lined himself up again. He pushed in slower than last time, but the pain was still there. My face tensed from the pain, but I felt him kissing my cheeks lightly. He kissed me all over my face as he moved in and out slowly.
“You feel so good, baby.” His voice was laced with pleasure and that alone made this experience worth it. He buried his face in my neck while trying to control his speed, making sure not to go to fast.
“It’s okay, Carl. You can go faster.” I held onto the back of his neck and kissed right under his ear. He groaned and picked up the pace slightly. The burning was subsiding, but still remained as he buried himself deep inside me. I tried to focus on his pleasure instead of mine and it helped take my mind off the pain. “I love you too Carl.” His hips stuttered a bit, hearing me respond to the words he said earlier. I moaned and he brought his lips to my own. He rested his forehead on mine and I could feel sweat forming. His body was tensing and his sighs were becoming audible moans. “Cum for me babe.” I whispered into his skin. I could feel his fists clench the sheets and he delivered one specifically hard thrust that made my head spin. It was a new feeling that wasn’t strange or painful, but extremely satisfying. I let out an embarrassing pornographic moan into his shoulder and Carl’s head shot up and a grin was stamped on his face. I smiled and pulled his lips back to mine and began rocking my hips into his.
“Oh God Y/N.” He groaned out loudly and began thrusting deep and fast. My mouth attached to his collarbone and I tried to stifle my moans, but it didn’t work.
“Carl, baby.” I shakily moaned.
“I’m so c-close.” He breathed into my skin and then I felt his abdomen convulse above me. He stilled inside me, breathing heavily and continuing to leave sweaty, wet kisses over every part of my neck and face. “I love you so much.” He sighed as he tried to catch his breath.

“I love you too. So much.” I sighed, still holding him close to me. Before he could even pull out, we heard a knock at the door. I was terrified that it was Rick coming to take me away. Carl’s head shot up and we quickly scrambled to put our clothes on. I hadn’t remembered that I had 89 stitches in my arm until I went to pull on my shirt. Carl saw me struggling and my shirt was half-way on when the door opened.

“Oh, I-uh-I should have waited for an answer, but-uh- Carl can I speak t-to you?”

Why I don’t want Lapi/dot canon

I mean like I said, I find the fan-art and the art by Zuke cute and I found Beta cute but I don’t want it canon. The reason why I don’t want it canon is because it feels rushed, undeveloped, and bland. Now bringing Ame-dot into this, Ame-dot wasn’t rushed or bland, and it developed both Amethyst and Peridot. Has this been done with Lapi/dot yet? No. Not really. Not on screen.

I wish Lapi/dot had on screen development, but no… they blew them off, as characters and as a ship. So yeah, I would ship Lapi-dot even more and want it canon if it didn’t feel bland or rushed, and it was developed properly ON-SCREEN.

i never really make posts about ichigo which is a shame because i actually really like him as a character (negative character development/ending aside). when i started reading bleach i found it so refreshing that he didn’t exactly know what he wanted to do. in series like naruto/one piece the MC knows what he wants to become from the beginning of the series, while ichigo’s desire to become a shinigami only gets stronger as the manga progresses. and even though he did have some ridiculous power ups, his inner struggles (the rain, despair, his inner world) were so interesting to read about. i wish kubo would’ve focused more on that aspect of ichigo rather than introducing 50 villians all at once. imo ichigo was a good main character but unfortunately he had a shitty writer that couldn’t properly use his full potential…

Critics who treat ‘adult’ as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

How to read scientific papers part 1

So, my major challenge when I first went into researh were the research papers I had to read. I used to just read them, without understanding a word of what was said there (seriously), so it was just really tedious to me, not productive at all and I wasn’t learning anything or making the most of my time in the lab since I wasn’t able to apply new concepts properly. But as time passed and I got more experienced, I found and developed a method that works pretty well for me, it helps me analyze and understand so I can later apply what I learned in my own research and time in the lab. It does take more time that just skimming through it, but it’s so worthy, trust me. But note that this may not work for everyone, it’s just a method I developed by experience (and honestly it’s pretty simple and typical) and also learning from others, which happened to be very effective to me. 

WHAY YOU WILL NEED

  • 2 highlighters: one for findings in the research you are reading, one for general and “universal” concepts mentioned. 
  • Your article
  • A notebook (try to have one exclusive for the research project you’re doing, if that’s the case, with a section for articles read that can be helpful)
  1. The first thing you’ll do is write the title in the notebook, because this will help understand the whole article. The title ususally has the ability to summarize everything in a sentence: it’s basically the hypothesis and procedure in one. 
  2. Second, we’ll work a little with the abstract. It’s a really small summary of everything but it contains the most common abreviations used throughout, so, we’ll extract and write them down to have them in handy while we read.

3. Usually the abstract has it too, the hypothesis, we have to find what was done or what was tried to prove with this research. 

4. Now, we analyze the introduction, tough simple and general, it can help us understand concepts better so we can later apply them. I like to make maps, charts and diagrams with the info so I can make sure I’m processing it correctly, and if I have any doubts I’ll just look it up! 

HIGHLIGHTING

If important information is regarding the research itself, like a result or something like that, I’ll highlight it with one color

If and important concept is mentioned, but it’s a universal or general concept, I’ll highlight it using another colorm because it might be useful later, (like what are anthocyanins, or the explanation of a procedure commonly used) 


It is indeed and extensive post, so I’ll write the rest later. 

Completely new to this studyblr community, I would like to say that @hexaneandheels has been my principal motivation to make this blog! I love how her tips are always useful and practical, that she always creates great and original content and I admire so much that hardworking and productive personality of hers, besides she’s so beautiful! 

Artsy INTJ – Yeah, it happens sometimes

For people who don’t know them, or have never listened to them carefully, INTJs are all about science. But that’s simply not true.

For how weird it might sound, I love art. Not only finding a personal meaning in it, I love drawing and beauty in itself.

Also, I’ve found out that artistic skills might actually be useful in an INTJ’s life – and we all know how important usefulness is.

Let’s proceed with order.

First, the obvious one. Drawing has developed my Se. The activity of drawing requires lots of focus on reality – of which INTJs usually lack or struggle with. It really keeps me grounded in reality and helps me live in the moment. It has thought me the value of observation and the importance of details, and now I can brag about Sherlock-like observation skills.

Second, it clicks with Fi. There are some paintings I’ve instantly felt a connection with, others that I love because they hide a profound meaning, but they have all helped me getting to know myself better and communicating with my Fi – which is sometimes kind of hard.

For example, have you ever seen Rob Gonsalves paintings? They really are awesome.

Third, Te. Art has little to do with logic, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t rationalise it. That what I do all the time – rationalise things. That’s what I’m doing right now with this post. Te makes you look for the usefulness of art and for a way to apply your skills to real life. That’s what got me interested in clothing and fashion. Using artistic abilities to dress well has helped me being more influential in social environments and ultimately achieving my goals faster. All because I’ve learned how to match clothes. Yes, society is that crazy.

Ultimately, art is also a great opportunity to get creative and expressing my Ni. Ni sometimes speaks in visions, images and metaphors that might be hard to express with words. That’s why art comes in handy.

anonymous asked:

Did you have to study realism and anatomy before you found your style?

No, but studying it while developing my style really helped me smooth out my linework and make my characters look like they have weight to them.

I’m taking my second anatomy class this semester and it’s really helping me have a rhythm and a better idea of how I work out poses without a reference. Drawing is great and fun but I feel like having the basics down and to keep learning will help you approach art differently. You’ll have an idea of what you’re doing and where you’re going lol
I immediately offered them my services. As soon as they picked one of my song ideas, I hopped on the phone with my old Robot Chicken boss Tom Root and we brainstormed and, based on that brainstorm, I wrote up the song ‘Super Friend.’ I am so excited to contribute more to the upward trend that is musicals in television and film. Music can be one of the most amazing and efficient forms of storytelling and character development. Also, it was really fun to write a comedy song for two superheroes.

Critics who treat ‘adult’ as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development.

When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.

And I won’t freeze you out
Like I have been
I won’t freeze you out
My heart is melting

THIS SONG by Sia describes perfectly Sasuke’s long path to let Sakura in. From coldness to a “smile that he never shows anyone but Sakura”. I decided to draw a few important moments between them. Moments when they both meet after some time, when Sasuke confronts that “new”, more mature, more powerful, more beautiful Sakura. Because she’s better every time they meet. 

Anyway, here’s first scene. Genin’s time. The beginning. Let’s just say this is the moment when Sasuke found out that Sakura seems strange and then he decides to comfort her. I’ll draw next scene soon. (Really inspired by this freakin songggggg)

And guyssssss, don’t you dare forget this ship. It has the most beautiful story, huge development AND IT’S CANON, U KNOW



I just go to bed…

OTH meme [1/1] place → Rivercourt

It’s been host to authors, NBA players, local legends, and fashion designers. Notable musicians have played here both concerts and games of “horse.” And on gentle summer nights as the staccato rhythms of worn leather on fading asphalt mixes with the white noise of the distant nightlife across the Cape Fear, kids have grown up here. I should know. I was one of them. Now development threatens to erase this place. Commerce is commerce. That’s not really the point, is it? The truth is, a town’s identity is made up of places like this one. And once they’re gone, they’re gone. […] A lot of lost kids found their way to something better in this park. In a confusing world, at a confusing time in their lives, they found something that made sense here, and they became better people because of it. Surely that is worth preserving.

Holy shit I found it, it wasn’t just a rumour. Armin and Eren will end up in opposition, and Mikasa too

“In the upcoming developments, the three of them and their way of thinking will go in different directions. As a result, they will end up in opposition.”

He says really clearly that he’s already got it planned. He’s revealing the plot in a fucking interview, what

He’s even implying that it’s happening pretty soon. He’s seriously going to have Armin inherit Bertholdt’s memories, isn’t he

When you take a break from drawing.. to draw. Oops! Meet my favourite fairy animal - Amarok, the magiwolf who bonded with Flora, the fairy of nature. Time taken ~ 3 hours, made completely with GIMP.

I really enjoyed doing this. I’m a “Winx Club” fangirl, too (it’s the only, if not one of the very few good shows that Nickelodeon is still showing in my country). I just found out that they’re making a season 8, which airs in 2018, yay! I’ve seen seasons 5-7 (+ a few random episodes from the first 4, really should watch those too) and absolutely loved them, even though the last season’s writing was a little lacking.

There were some things about the characters’ personalities that really bothered me - compared to the previous 2 seasons, they sort of erased some of the great character development that’d happened (or they felt way out of character) and I just would’ve wanted to rewrite some of the dialogues/scenes in a more mature way (with a similar outcome to serve the plot of course). Also, is it just me or did some of the voice actors change as well during the last season? Well, in my opinion, it could’ve been done better, but I was satisfied in the end.

Before I discovered ATLA and TLOK, I used to love drawing animals. It was kind of my thing, I tried to avoid drawing people because I knew I was terrible at it. Almost 6+ years into the Avatar fandom and I’m feeling more confident about it than ever. This goes to show that practice does make perfect.

Overrated Crushes and Urges

Author’s note: First fic that I’m posting on my own blog, I’m so excited!! I decided to go for a RinRei fic because I’m in Free! shipping hell and this pairing deserves more love <3

Summary: Takes place during episode 3 of Eternal Summer. Rin develops a small crush on Rei and doesn’t really know how to deal with it. Though during their private practice sessions, he found out that Rei’s extremely ticklish and uses this as an excuse to touch him.


Crushes were so overrated. Not to mention pointless. Usually when you like a person, you just walk up to them, ask them for a cup of coffee or some cheap ass other thing, and that’s it. There was one problem, though. Rei was probably already taken, or at least, it looked like he was.

After a week of training with him every single day, Rin saw the Iwatobi group standing behind the glass windows, watching them. Seriously, they would be the worst spies, seeing that they couldn’t at least pretend they were hiding. Granted, Rei hadn’t seen them since he was so focused on his swimming, which was probably their main priority.

Nagisa’s pure look didn’t go unnoticed by Rin’s eyes. Either they were together or Nagisa was head over heels for the guy he was now holding firmly so he wouldn’t sink. The guy had squirmed a lot in the beginning, awkwardly admitting that he was ticklish and “Please don’t tell Nagisa-kun, Rin-san, I’ll die,” with a pleading look and Rin had reassured him he wouldn’t, casually leaving out that he had stored the information in the back of his head for later.

Still.

Rei was off limits. And it annoyed him.

He didn’t even think they’d form a friendship because of his anger. After seeing Rei swimming with Haru and the others for the first time, he had felt nothing but fury, not to mention he couldn’t even do the butterfly stroke justice. However, his anger morphed into admiration when Rei had let him swim with his old teammates and he thought that was it.

… Until he received a text the other day from an unknown number.

Good evening, Rin-san. This is Ryuugazaki Rei.
I hope you don’t mind that I got your number from Nagisa-kun’s phone, but I have a favor to ask
.”

It didn’t matter whether he was up for it or not. He owed Rei big time, so he saved his number and texted him back right away.

They would have their last session tomorrow and Rin was absently playing with his phone, listening to Sousuke’s soft breathing coming from the top bunk.

It bothered him endlessly that he couldn’t even ask the guy out. Usually, he’d tell himself to move on with his life, but Rei was right there every night, doing his best to get better and Rin wanted nothing more than kiss him after every round to praise him.

With an annoyed sigh, he flipped open his phone, scrolled through his contacts and selected Nagisa’s number. He had to know.

Nagisa, you up?

Of course it only took a few seconds before he got a reply. “rin-chan!! (ᵔᴥᵔ) what’s up???

Just had a quick question. Do you like Rei?

of course i do! i looooooove rei-chan! i love all of you!!”

Nagisa was really dense sometimes. “Not like that, you idiot. I meant romantically”

oooooh. nah. if i did, i would have told you guys. why’d you ask? do YOU like him romantically?? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) does rin-chan have a crush on rei-chan??” 

If you tell anyone I’ll steal all your penguin boxers”

“eeeeeeeeh, so mean! fiiine, i won’t tell. but you should! you guys would be cute together!!

Yeah, yeah. Goodnight nagisa

night night! rei-chan says goodnight too!

Hold the f— “OI NAGISA. I s2g, you didn’t let rei read over your shoulder did you?

But he didn’t get an answer. Rin groaned and laid his arm over his eyes, praying that practice tomorrow wouldn’t be too painful. It was very typical of Nagisa to not mention anything during a confidential conversation because, again, Nagisa was really dense and was never scared or embarrassed about anything.

So it wasn’t entirely surprising that Rei turned up the next day with bright red cheeks and awkward posture. It would’ve been utterly hilarious, hadn’t Rin been the cause of it.

Nagisa was so dead after this.

Eh, practice wasn’t too bad. Some small talk and avoiding the subject did wonders for the painful silence. It didn’t take that long for Rei to fully concentrate on his form and swimming and Rin was very grateful for that. Plus, he didn’t miss that Rei was exceptionally squirmy today, especially when he held his lower back for support.

So far, sides, back of the knees and lower back were the most ticklish and Rin couldn’t help but chuckle at the silly observations he had made. Every time he touched those areas, Rei would stiffen and press his lips together and it was hilarious.

“Good work today. Let’s go shower,” Rin spoke up around ten o’clock like he did every time. “You can show everyone how far you’ve come tomorrow.”

“I can’t wait to see their faces,” Rei smirked and gladly took Rin’s hand to help him out of the pool. “Thank you so much for helping me.”

“You gotta stop saying that, ‘cause you’ve already thanked me like a thousand times. It’s fine.”  

It wasn’t until they hit the showers that it grew immensely quiet between the two of them and Rin wondered if he had to do something. It wasn’t like Rei looked bored, or anything, just absorbed into washing every inch of his body and making sure there was not a trace of chlorine in his hair. Rin let his eyes roam over the other’s body, lingering on his accented collarbone, his hips that barely peeked out above his swimwear and his dark eyelashes that looked exceptionally long without the goggles and glasses.

Boy, he was in deep. He had stopped washing himself to just stare at him bluntly like a love-sick loser and he had to do something.

Rei, being the oblivious shit, hadn’t noticed and was still massaging his scalp, as if he was lost in trance. So, Rin did the first thing that came to mind and poked his side.

The reaction was very dramatic.
