but restrained myself

Well I wrote some poetry

It’s not good. At all. But when I go making up an entire literary genre there has to be SOMETHING from it that they can quote.


Why, oh why, am I getting so involved in this world when the request was just for some filthy smut?

And yet here we are, 11k in, not a dick in sight.


But there is some crappy poetry.


And before that, there was an astoundingly bad play.


That’s like… just as good as smut, right?

I Just realized that the rest of the Voltron team in the space cowboys AU doesn't know that Keith and Lance are engaged and all I can imagine is them finding out by Yathir telling them about their last heist(sexy time) and shiro making a :I bc of it. I love this AU and your writing styli and now i'ma going to reread all of it! <3 <3

The Voltron team is unaware of many, many things in regards to Lance and Keith, and that’s definitely one of the nicer things they don’t know ;D (Not gonna give away how they find out! Restraining myself a lot right now.) If you’re going to re-read (which is awesome), please, please try and get enough sleep! Noticing a trend in my asks of late ;D 

Now, let’s find something a little fluffier to end the night on … Hm, I think this is okay:

“Yeah, catharsis, nice word — you read a few books between the heists and the high noon shoot outs, or what?”

I mean, at least it’s not angsty? ;) *hugs* Thank you so much!

tiny, messy, lunch break sketches absolutely MUST include wonder woman rn…

I love love LOVED this look (and i want to do a more finished piece with it eventually). i can’t not go hard about costuming and the history of dress and i’m going to flail about this for a sec. Costume designer Lindy Hemming clearly knew what she was doing. This wasn’t just a “this outfit is plain and practical after those nonsense ‘fashionable’ options” it was a definite, intentional nod to WWI Women’s uniforms (and Diana is going to the front, it makes sense for her to be in something uniform-ish).

Although WWII is better known for women going to work for the first time (i.e. the iconic ‘Rosie the Riveter’) - women absolutely served in various capacities in WWI and were considered crucial to the war effort. Even though most of the women who served still did so in tradition-friendly roles of relief & aid work, WWI is notable in that it was one of the first times that women served either in an enlisted or civilian capacity in uniform. 

Here are some examples of WWI women’s uniforms to show the clear tie between these and Diana’s outfit: 

Women’s Motor Corps 1916-1918 (American) - If you look at men’s uniforms from the same time period the core design elements are basically identical, they’ve just been ‘feminized’ in the women’s versions. 

UK army recruits 1917 (check out those hats! definite link between those and Diana’s, Also the clear distinction between what’s worn by the recruits and the commander)

Women Police Service, 1916 (British) - women served in uniform at home - filling traditionally male roles while men were away (MOST women served at home, with a relatively small % actually ending up at the front). below are some women firefighters in london around the same time wearing similar uniforms (i can barely go down a ladder period, much less do so with someone over my shoulder - so badass!!!): 

The costuming design is perfect in context of the movie’s storyline, wonder woman as a property, and as a tribute to the tens of thousands of women who enlisted and volunteered during the war and it made me SO HAPPY.

*side note - while pulling together these photos I learned about the Women’s Death Battalions (no, seriously) and Holy. CRAP. apparently around 6,000 russian women were actual combatants during the war and not just aid & relief and jfc how had I never heard about this? the rest of the world is like “we guess women can be nurses and ambulance drivers, we are so progressive!!!” meanwhile russia: GETS TIRED OF WOMEN DISGUISING THEMSELVES AS MEN AND SNEAKING INTO THE ARMY. FORMS WOMEN-ONLY UNITS AND CALLS THEM ‘BATTALIONS OF DEATH’*

  • me: texting him first is too desperate. in this age, a modern woman needs to be independent. i am a strong and busy lady. i will restrain myself, and keep myself an enigma.
  • me five seconds later: life is too short to not live your passions fully. i'm going to text first; i free myself from society's restrains. without risk there is no reward,

It’s so hot today, so on stream I just decided you know what, lets just focus on a color study today, and I think it came out pretty neat. i might actually render it out in this style

EDIT: I went and polished this painting. You can see it clicking here

god i’m really not over how the first time bernie + serena meet it’s literally like a scene straight out of a fanfic…..like bernie just swaggering over to serena with a cigarette in her mouth, the classic ‘the alternator might be cactus’ line, bernie immediately sharing the whole cigarette-as-a-symbol-of-my-freedom-thing with this woman she met exactly 30 seconds ago, the iconic™ way bernie was about to text marcus telling him that her shift was shit but then after speaking to serena for like 1 minute she texts him saying it’s going great….like it was all so gay + now they’re in love can u BELIEVE IT
