What do you think about the way He Tian kissed Momo? I mean, for me it's not the most common thing kissing a guy for the first time and putting your tongue down his throat. It seems like He Tian desired Guan Shan so much...
lmao no it’s not the most common thing…
it was violent and belligerent and desperate. it was not nice. guan shan was assaulted by it and deserves an apology, which he hasn’t received yet. it was a sign of he tian’s infatuation and his total misunderstanding of the situation and guan shan’s feelings/reaction, and it was a perfect example of he tian rushing headfirst into things he doesn’t understand – thinking he understands them – and that it will all turn out ok in the end.
it was a very… entitled rich-boy approach, in all honesty: i can take what i want and the consequences don’t matter. his ‘oh shit’ expression when he sees guan shan crying is worth hanging up on a wall tbh, because 1) he got it wrong and fucked up 2) guan shan was not just going to kiss back or push him away in annoyance like he did with most things 3) he cared that guan shan was upsetbecause of him
Tagged by @karawek !!! Thanks for the tag lovely - ps. look at her aesthetic post and cry at how beautiful it is! The challenge was to to make an aesthetic post out of only pics on my phone.
Son, let me tell you how hard this was… cause I take pictures of everything on my phone and I haven’t backed it up in a long time.. SO THERE WERE A LOT OF PICTURES TO GO THROUGH, but i think i’ve got it figured out!! : D and this turned out to be pretty fun!!
… my aesthetic is still figuring itself out ok??? XDD
@ellstersmash requested water lily in #40 for the color palette challenge. Probably the most challenging part of this piece was incorporating all the colors from the palette. I think I got them all in there, but only just. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I’m not sure I quite managed to capture the opacity of the petals. But I think the colors turned out nice and I did a fairly good job showing light and shadow.
I think I’m going to paint a landscape study next. I’m using one of the palettes from the challenge, but slightly modified. This will be my first attempt at something more large scale with a predefined color palette (well, other than the portraits I did last year), so we’ll see how it goes!
my fave story at didey was when i started my shift at this hat store n this hat was done so i took it off to trim it and it says “I love my boy!” and im like ‘aw how nice a dad/mom loves their kid’ and i turn around to call it out but i didnt wanna say it out loud cus that would be weird? but this 25 yo is looking at me and hes like “oh thats my hat!” n im like ‘aight’ and i handed it to him thinking he was a young dad but he goes n turns to his friend and hands it to him and says ‘here you go son’ and i wanted to fucking scream
This is random, but I'm curious--what kind of female attention do you think Simon gets when he goes out? I don't mean from fans, but regular people. Maybe I'm biased, but he's genuinely one of the most good-looking guys I've seen--nice body, tall, nice smile, nice eyes. I imagine he probably turns quite a few heads when he goes to a bar or even when walking down the street.
ugh that’s a really tough question… i mean he is always surrounded by some gorgeous girls but ofc that doesn’t mean that they’re all interested in him so i really don’t know. i’d have to go out with him sometimes in order to give you an answer 😂
From top to bottom: Oka sitting in a tree and talking to Supana who doesn’t like heights, Kuu sitting in a tree and not caring that Midori fell out of the tree, and Mei helping Mai climb up the tree.
Midori, Kuu, Supana, Oka, Mei and Mai in cherry trees for anon!
I’m sorry for taking so long with this one. Even though it took so long to set up, it was really fun putting this together and thinking about what they’d be doing, considering their canon and/or fanon personalities. Since I got this request, I’d planned on having on of them being afraid of heights and having Midori fall out of a tree. I really like using the surrounding area for these to come up with something fun like this! As much as I love doing ship stuff, it was pretty nice doing something that was just general pose mode. I really like how in the last picture you can see all three set ups, even a little. I hope this turned out good! - Mod Shiloh
Context: I grew up in a family of nerds, and superheroes were always a really big part of my childhood. Captain America was a favorite, and he kind of became my family’s standard for good behavior and just generally being a Nice Person. (If one of the kids started a fight they’d get hit with, “What would Captain America think of how you’re acting?”, stuff like that.)
So when I got to high school and started dating, my mom told me something that sounds funny but in retrospect actually turned out to be really good advice:
“Date someone who treats you the way Captain America would. Never settle for less.”
And this has actually helped me so much in my dating life, through high school and into my adult years, because even if it’s a little silly, it’s been really helpful to have that standard in the back of my mind when I’m first going into a relationship.
Would Captain America ignore my calls? Would Captain America forget my birthday? Would Captain America get mad at me for cancelling a date because a family emergency came up? If the answer is no, then I know that the person I’m currently dating does not meet my standards, and that I need to break things off before they get too serious.
And your standard absolutely does not have to be Captain America, specifically. It can be any person, male or female, real or fictional, who is known for being respectful and considerate. It can even be an imaginary “soulmate” that you make up yourself. The point is to have a specific idea of how you expect to be treated by your romantic partners, and to refuse to compromise or settle for less. (Just make sure you’re holding yourself to the same standards – you can’t expect to date superheroes if you’re going to treat your partners the way a supervillain would.) This is a really good way to keep yourself from falling into bad relationships where you aren’t treated with the respect and care you deserve.
TL;DR: You deserve to date people who are respectful and considerate of you. You deserve a Captain America. Don’t settle for less.
He was not at ninety-four. Ninety-four was the whispered words, “Thank you. You were amazing.” They echoed inside Andrew’s head over and over, like they were an offering, a prayer, a goodbye, like they were pushed out of his body with his dying breath. It was irritating and he was going to bring it up on the bus. He was going to spell it out nice and slow how Neil needed to stop living like he was dying and start living like the exy junkie he was.
Ninety-five was turning around and seeing nothing. Not nothing in the sense that Neil was nothing, but nothing in the sense of panic, of worry, of standing on the edge of the rooftop looking down thinking “Would it hurt if I fell?” The space where Neil should have been filled with emotions that Andrew swore he would never feel again.
Ninety-six was finding his bag. It wasn’t the bag that held his entire life, that was locked away in the Fox Tower, safe. It was the bag that held his future. A future he knew Neil wanted in the way he clutched the key he gave him back in August. A key that was left in the God forsaken bag with Neil nowhere in sight.
For ninety-seven, Kevin was there. The other foxes were there too but the words Kevin formed with his breath passing over his voice box and the movements of his tongue and jaw, were the only things that mattered. Kevin’s mouth moved, sound traveled in vibrations through the air, hit Andrew’s eardrums, and then his hands were around Kevin’s neck. There were lies and half-truths and Andrew hated those. Again not in the sense he hated Neil but in the sense that he hated the word ‘please’ and ‘misunderstanding’. He hated how he didn’t hate Neil because of all the lies. And for that, ninety-seven.
Ninety-eight was the phone call that Neil had been found.
Ninety-nine was walking through the hotel door and seeing him crumple in agony. It was the hissed “Don’t” as he did his best sooth away the pain. It was the eyes that were Nathaniel’s with hints of Neil peeking out behind his irises. It was the look of a man staring helplessly as the executioner readied the guillotine. It was the words “I’m sorry” like he had something to be sorry for. It was his attitude that no matter how beat up he got, remained impeccably intact. And it was the question he still had the gall to ask: “Am I at ninety-four yet?”
A temp I barely knew was actively trying to get me fired behind my back.
This happened a while ago but decided to post today as she rang a member of the office and used the threat of unfair dismissal claim if she wasn’t given a good reference. Not sure if it belongs in here or not.
TL:DR An office temp I’d spoken to a handful of times conspires to have me fired without my knowledge. It’s a very long story so be warned it’s a bit of a vent.
So, we had a temp covering maternity leave that turned out to be a bit of a nutjob. She was EA to Deputy CEO and seemed to think this gave her some sort of status. We’ll call her the temp. I’d spoken to her twice maybe three and was incredibly nice; I make it my business to be nice to everyone. What she didn’t know is that from about a week after she started I knew she was sending daily complaints (all unfounded and untrue) to my manager about me. My manager and I get on socially and professionally and he was dumbfounded by her doing this. I still have no idea, why she did it to me either and until today I’d put her out of my mind.
We are talking 3 or 4 complaints a day and asking for stuff to be taken further and why wasn’t I getting warned/reprimanded, whatever?
