but i put too much time on it

Does anyone else get that feeling when you start sketching with the intention of it not being more than just that; a sketch, and then you end up spending evenings and odd hours here and there on the thing and you realize that yeah no this is not a sketch any more, And you want to be done with it but by now you’ve put too much time into it so you can’t just stop and call it done any more cus it’s in that inbetween place where it can’t really be presented as a sketch anymore, but it’s not finished enough to feel done and if you stop here in the middle everything just feels wrong.

I keep thinking “Mmm yeah I’m gonna call it here and just be done with it” and then I spend another hour or two changing things and poking at details. Repeat.

Ok, but force ghost Maul following Obi-Wan throughout the OT so Luke ends up with a literal Jedi on one shoulder Sith on the other situation. "Feel your anger, feel your power!" "Remember Luke, anger leads to the Darkside." "Guys it was just one of Wedge's pranks, I'll get him back next time." "Yes, take your vengeance!" "A Jedi should not act out of personal feelings, no matter how justified they are" "Guys..."

Hahahaha poor Luke!! He puts up with so much. I love the idea of Maul being like YOU SHOULD KILL THAT GUY every time something even remotely annoying happens to Luke, too, while Luke’s just like, “my wait at the grocery store is just taking a little bit longer than usual –” “YOU MUST HAVE YOUR REVENGE” “*sigh*”  

One Last Call

Prompt: You unlock your phone, and, ignoring the shaking of your hand, answer the call. “Hey” you say, not even trying to compress the wound, too far gone as you already are, “no, i’m fine. I’ll be with you in a minute or two…”



You didn’t have Iron Man’s suit, Nat’s training, Clint’s weapon skills, Thor’s godliness, Bruce’s alter ego, or Steve’s…everything. That didn’t mean you let them keep you back. You put in the hours in the gym, you logged some serious time at the gun range, and learned as much as you could. While you didn’t go on every mission, they did let you tag along on some.


This one had seemed like cake work, something you could use as field training. Somewhere along the way, you’d been separated from the group. Saving people was top priority, so calling one of them didn’t cross your mind.


Now you found yourself face to face with a couple of the goons that were terrorizing part of the city. They were twice your size, but backing down wasn’t your style. The one to your right rushed towards you, and you slid your foot out to the side, making him stumble. While you were slightly distracted by him, the other took his chance.


A searing pain ripped through your body as his knife cut into your side. That was nothing compared to the pain that you felt when he yanked it out. Your body collapsed from shock, your hand moving to the bleeding wound. They took off, back towards the main fight, leaving you there, your blood pooling on the ground below you.


Closing your eyes, you controlled your breathing, hoping that someone would get to you in time. You wouldn’t call out to anyone, wanting the danger taken care of, and innocent people saved. You had known the risks coming in.


Hearing your phone, you slowly opened your eyes, groaning as you shifted to pull out your phone. Seeing Tony’s smile staring back at you made you tear up. Unlocking your phone, you did your best to steady your hand. “Hey.” The hand that had been holding your wound was now simply resting there, ignoring how numb you were going. “No, no, I’m fine. I’ll be with you guys in a minute or two.” You lied, not wanting them to rush away from whatever important jobs they were doing. “Meet you there. Bye.” As soon as you hung up, you let your phone clatter to the ground, the fact that you were dying looming over your head.




Somewhere in the distance you could faintly hear Steve yelling out to you. He sounded like he was in a tunnel far away. “Y/N!” His voice got louder until you were faintly aware of your body being lifted. “Come on, please don’t leave us.” He pleaded softly.

I have died and gone to heaven. I was actually fangirling about the fic to my friend who was reading another fic, it was great. She loves your viktor too, Im just stuned and like, how much time you have to put into this, and I cant thank you enough for that! thank you!

It’s honestly my pleasure!

I know this may be a little controversial to some, but Bones needs to get his nails trimmed again soon. I cannot spend the money to have the vet do it for me again. Getting hands on and being able to physically handle my rabbit is one of the areas where I have admittedly slacked as an owner.

He doesn’t seem to like it too much, but I have been acclimating him to being handled by me more. I think it’s actually making our bonding a little bit better. Yes, he’s mad immediately after I place my hand over his head and on his behind to pacify him enough to let me examine his claws up close without struggling. He doesn’t like when I put my hand underneath is chest and paws to stand him up. But those few foot flicks haven’t stopped him from spending time under my desk when I’m working or studying and following me to the other side of the room if I need to go there.

While I’m at this, I’ve also been practicing picking him up and holding him, and rewarding him with treats afterwards. No carrier. No vet visit. Just being picked up for a few minutes, being pet, maybe even sitting down; and letting him go after a minute to receive some papaya. He’s gotten a lot better with it. if I sit down on the bed with him, I don’t even restrain him. I’ve been doing it on “you’re free to go whenever you want” terms. He’ll stay to be pet, but as soon as I stop he’ll casually walk onto the bed. He clearly doesn’t like the being picked up part, but he doesn’t FIGHT like he used to. And in a way, he IS enjoying the extra engagement.

I think every rabbit owner needs to commit some time to doing this. I know the general consensus on bunblr is usually “don’t do it unless you need to,” and a lot of info I studied when I first became an owner advised against it, but really, your vet will probably really appreciate it! And who knows, every rabbit has a different threshold for handling, and I’d advise that you never let your guests do it(unless your rabbit is a freak that loves it) but if you can acclimate your rabbit to this, you just might find that they enjoy the comfort of sitting in your lap being pet gratuitously. Rabbits like to be treated like royalty. And like royalty, they might not be so keen on being handled. But there’s a time and place for it, and you and your rabbit need to both be trained for it.

yeah that last bit is basically what i think happened

we dont really have much 2 go on with this but i think it would make sense if the issue w/ era 2 dots is specifically that theyre overusing the kindergartens or putting the kindergartens in suboptimal places (sort of like the beta kindergarten) rather than the peridot “formula” gettin changed

so what im thinking is era 1 dots would have metal powers but era 2s have a way harder time 2 the point that it just seemed like it was impossible, or that even if it was possible it’d be way too stressful. so they just get told up front that they have no powers

so anyways here is a phan sims series i put too much time into

Every time I see a rant video or something about Sonic Forces, I get less excited for it, and I'm honestly just confused as to why this is the case

I don’t think you should let those sort of videos influence you too much. Stay true to your own opinions, whether they’re positive or negative.

It’s all too easy these days for everyone and their grandad to make videos or rants about why this Sonic product or that Sonic product won’t be perfect, complete with clickbait-tastic titles, so I don’t put too much stock in them personally.

I’ve spent my entire life running away from my problems and finding any excuse I could not to put myself out there, or take risks, or work too hard or invest too much in anything for fear of losing, or discovering that I couldn’t measure up.

But for the first time in my life I have a reason to change that, and I don’t even know how to describe how that feels. For the first time in my life, doing the scary thing feels exciting, and doing the hard thing feels rewarding, and working my ass off to get what I want, what I need, feels…possible.

I finally have a reason to find out what I’m capable of, and it’s going to be amazing.

[“That sure was.. something..”]

au where keith is a famous korean figure skater and he’s been losing competitions because his performances “lack emotion”
but then his idol, japanese figure skater takashi shirogane, comes to korea to be his coach. 

after a few weeks of training with shiro, keith’s routines start to become passionate and emotional. 

it’s obvious what keith’s feelings are and who their for when he performs (especially since keith always looks at shiro when he skates, not to mention they’re both way too open with their pda)

Hi, 7goodangel. I am here to ask you about PaperJam as a shy, smol and innocent being (mainly thegreatrouge made him be). There has been some conflicts regarding his trait. Some said his canonical personality is a jerk, like what you wrote in his bio / info and some said that is severely wrong and being shy, (which made him shipped with Fresh), is his canonical personality. What are your thoughts about this? I mean, it is your character and people are taking control of it. Don't you disagree?

Well… I have talked to people and seen public conversations and this has happened several times to me over months. I guess I’ve gotten a little numb to it now… or maybe it’s due to school that I haven’t given it the attention that it deserves. Probably due to school. 

I just can’t update constantly like others - even though some others in school were and are able to update constantly. I can’t keep going around and holding up my bio of PJ and police people. It’s exhausting to me… it really takes up the small bit of free time I have. 

I think after I get a solid job that I’ll be able to go around better… but anyway - back to your question. 


While I love seeing interpretations and do not want people to be limited by something and have their imaginations go forth… it’s proving that a huge con comes with that mentality - which you have pointed out. A lot of people swear that PJ is the cute, innocent interpretation that really, did get PJ popular in the first place. While I did have him as a jerk from the beginning - I kinda kept that info to my RP blog - so you could say it is my fault this is all happening and I do think that. I could of done something to make it not as bad as it is now… 

It’s just like the NSFW stuff… people just assume the first thing and run with it. And it really does make me feel like I really am not needed for my own character at points. 

It’s a struggle - I don’t want to have people stop interpreting PJ within AUs… but I also don’t want people to just see him as an innocent child to ship with Fresh. 

And I’m still trying to find the best solution to it. 

But… I feel like the damage is already done. It’s too late for me to talk to all of these people going around swearing on their life that PJ is canoncally like Rouge’s interpretation/AUs. It feels like an hopeless battle to me. 

And I guess I needed someone to ask me this question so then I can fully say my thoughts on this. 

So in short, while I love creativity and don’t want to snuff it out (considering some people would probably think I’m doing that already with saying “No Sin”), I still don’t like it. It irritates me, irks me, frustrates me, and I feel like even as the person who thought of PJ in the first place, my voice isn’t enough. Communities seem like they don’t care about artists unless they reach a ‘certain goal of popularity’ or seem like they have a more professional style of art. I know I do not reach either of those titles. 

People misspell my username all the time - I actually claimed ‘7goodangle’ on tumblr for that reason.

People still say “I’m too lazy to find who made PJ” when they clearly mentioned they looked at the bio on the wiki. 

People still go around arguing others on the canon ship of OmniPJ and swearing that FreshPaper is the true canon ship, when all people are pointing out is that they need to keep the canon ship in mind when going around with information.

Even just basic personality traits… and these things are happening on sites that I do not nor want an account for. 

I still want others to have fun - to be happy; but I don’t know… I guess I’m cutting out my own happiness to get everyone else happy? I want to eventually write a version of PJ within his own universe and story… and he is more like the version I created within the UT verse. Not exact - but close. Though who knows… I might shove PJ to the side and replace his role with another character. I’m still weighing options.

Cause PJ was the first character I ever put this much time and thought into… my first character that was balanced, well rounded…

And what happens?

…well.

You said it Anon. 

They took it - changed it (initially as an AU but now people think it’s canon) - and I can’t do much about it. Due to school and not much free-time… due to how many don’t know the true creator… and just back talking anyone who is just mentioning it to people who swear by it. 

As an artist and a character designer…

It makes me not want to show designs, characters, and stories ever again online.

Considering if this is how I was treated on the first one… why even take a chance at a second one? If it has brought me so much stress, frustration, and time… why even try it again?

I said I was only going to do fanart so if anyone stole it, it didn’t really matter. 
I think I should have stuck with that thought process. 

In conclusion, there are some major things to take away here. First – that yes, I do not like how it has skewed this far to the point of arguing over a fandom version with the canon. Canon is canon and I get the different AUs – this is too far. Way too far. I am emotionally drained from this – from this whole mess that I have been defending throughout majority of PJ’s lifespan. I will state this – Paper Jam is my character. He is my original character that I created more than a year ago. And the UT AU fandom took my character and warped him to something he is not and all of his original meaning is lost. I do not like to hurt others or make other sad – but I must put my foot fully down. This miscommunication needs to stop. I am tired of repeating things over and over and I have past my breaking point time and time again. I just want people to see PJ how he really is… and I wish that people could be focusing more on the reality of him instead of the alternate that they all claim as truth.

Final words: I still like Undertale – I still like creating characters and having fun – but the Undertale AU fandom is ridiculous now. The Amino UT community is insanity in an app, and there is a lot of stuff that has made many artists and creators to their breaking point and leaving the fandom entirely. Everyone in this fandom needs to take ten steps back and look at what they are doing. Go back to the game. Play it again – watch your favorite let’s player’s videos of it again. 

And just… food for thought… please don’t jump the gun on someone else’s OC’s personality and actions. 

I do not want anyone to experience what I had.

[TRANS] SPRING DAY - BTS

Miss you
saying this makes me miss you more
i miss you even though im looking at your photo
time is so cruel, i hate us
seeing each other for once is so hard between us

it’s all winter here even in August
my heart is running on the time alone on the snowpiercer
i wanna get to the other side of the earth holding your hand 
wanna put an end to this winter
how much longing should we see snowing down to have the days of spring, friend

like the tiny dust like tiny dust floating in the air
will i get to you a little faster if i was the snow in the air 

snowflakes fall and get away little by little
i miss you i miss you
how long do i have to wait
and how many sleepless nights do i have to spend
to see you to meet you 

passing by the edge of the cold winter
until the days of the spring 
until the flowers blossom
please stay, please stay there a little longer

is it you who changed or is it me?
i hate this moment that this time flows
we are changing you know, just like everyone you know 
yes i hate you, you left me 
but i never stopped thinking about you, not even a day
honestly i miss you but ill erase you
cuz it hurts less than to blame you

i try to exhale you in pain like smoke, like white smoke
i say that ill erase you but i cant really let you go yet

snowflakes fall and get away little by little
i miss you i miss you
how long do i have to wait
and how many sleepless nights do i have to spend
to see you to meet you

you know it all, youre ma best friend
the morning will come again 
no darkness, no season can last forever

maybe its cherry blossoms and this winter will be over 
i miss you i miss you 
wait a little bit, just a few more nights
ill be there to see you, ill come for you 

passing by the edge of the cold winter
until the days of the spring
until the flowers blossom
please stay, please stay there a little longer

I know I’m hard to deal with at times, but I want you to know that even if I say things I don’t mean, I will always love you for putting up with me. Don’t forget that.
