but should be close enough

tips for the new year

stop arguing extensively with people online as a hobby:

  • its boring and isolating
  • its a cheap way to get a short burst of self esteem in something thats not actually fun or encourages your own growth
  • the likelihood that you, a complete stranger, will change someone’s mind if you just tweet at them enough is close to zero
  • you should take time to think seriously about how you want to engage with the world and develop your opinions based on varied, new experiences
  • if you ignore shitty people it makes them go so ballistic they meltdown spectacularly, pretty much every time without fail
  • no one is impressed by your internet text victory. in the rare cases where someone is, its impressive for the 3 seconds it took to read the tweet
  • when i have to scroll past your 120000 word nerd slap fight it mildly inconveniences me
  • just play a video game

FUNNY STORY ABOUT THESE: for whatever reason, the place I bought them from shipped them separately. Chirrut was to arrive on Monday, Baze on Tuesday. But when UPS tried to deliver on Monday, my roommate couldn’t get to the door in time. So I tried to have Chirrut delivered to my local UPS Access Point. But for whatever reason, it wouldn’t let me, so I crossed my fingers that they would deliver him with Baze the next day since I was planning on working from home. Then of course Tuesday, there was a snowstorm and UPS didn’t deliver anything. I was able to arrange to have Baze delivered to the Access Point, but it still wouldn’t let me have Chirrut delivered there. So I left a note for the driver to deliver to the coffee shop under my apartment instead. Then right before I left work today, my roommate texted me to let me know I had two large packages waiting for me. Long story short: there’s no power in the universe that can separate these two.

  • Griffin: "My boyfriend-to-be keeps on giving me the head lice. About two months ago I found some head lice in my hair the morning after someone I'm dating slept in my place. I did the treatment the same day. Two weeks later, slept together again and I found living lice again. It happened again yesterday, then I got the treatment again. And today as well." That's four lices. That's four different lice events. "What should I do? We're not close enough to talk about that, but I'm pretty sure he's the one giving them to me. I'm tired of doing treatments and changing tons of sheets after we're sleeping. I thought about telling him I got them somehow, and in a responsible way I'm telling him but I'm afraid he'll be turned off by me. Please help me, *frowney face*."
  • Justin: Turned off by you? He's the lice guy!
  • Travis: This is a tale as old as time. We get this question every week where people say, 'I'm sleeping with someone but at what point is it time to say I know you have lice?' Y'know what I mean? Like, yes, we will engage in intercourse and sleep in the same bed together, but we're not quite at the place where we're comfortable talking about each other's head lice?!
  • Griffin: He's probably very embarrassed about it. Here's what drives me crazy is you've done four of these treatments - if he does one, he's probably good to go at that point.
  • Travis: I don't think he IS that embarrassed, Griffin. I'm saying, maybe that's what he thinks he's bringing to the table. 'Listen, I don't have a great personality, I'm not very rich, but you know what I do have? Head full of lice.'
  • Justin: A billion little fingers to please you.
  • Griffin: Oh god!
  • Travis: We're gonna share this together, baby. You, me, and the lice.
  • Griffin: Go. Go, my little sexual servants.
  • ...
  • Travis: Call me Lice Bryce.
  • Justin: Lice Bryce, Ant-Man's shitty brother.
  • ...
  • Travis: I've also never described anyone as my 'girlfriend-to-be'.
  • Justin: Well Trav, I think if somebody gave me lice four times I'd probably keep'em in the maybe column.
Alternate Methods. [Smut]

A;N: So without further ado here is the first smut of 2017 from yours truly. I wouldn’t have had the idea if not for the help of the lovely @writing-obrien She helped me so much with this! Also shoutout to my hoes and @we-are-like-a-timebomb for being there to tell me it’s not shit. Love you guys. Enjoy! xoxo

Aw, Ship!

Drunk Allie Shipping Time! 

So what do drunk ships entail? 

Things to know:

-I ship everything. Or I try to. Very few I don’t, but just PM me or send me an ask to check!
-Send me a bit about you with your ship request. More than just appearances, so I can ship you the best ship possible!
-I tag it ‘aw ship’ so if you wanna blacklist it so it doesn’t clog your dash, do it that way.
-Don’t be mean! I try not to be myself. I can usually get through about 25 ships before things go south for me sleep-wise. I’m on the West Coast (PST), so that’s where I’m operating from.
-Feel free to chat with me, too. Send me random asks. Have fun. Be goofy. I’m here for the positivity, laughs, and general goodness of the world.
-Two requests per person! Specify if you have an orientation or preference you’d like me to stick with :)
-I’ll warn before shutting down for the evening. I like to have fun, though.

That’s it. Get ready to have fun!

I’m so excited to have some fun after a pretty stressful and crummy week. And hey, if you wanna encourage me to drink I’m all for it ;)

Tag your friends. Share the fun. Let’s get this started!

Art Help: Figures

Because you asked, let’s talk about bodies now. I know some cartoonists like to just throw anatomy out the window altogether, which can be fun and creative, but I prefer to know what’s inside and behind the things I’m drawing, I like to know what constructs a body, including the human figure, so #1 advice would be to just do a lot of figure drawing when you can:

 It doesn’t even have to be 100% realistic all the time, just learn to do it properly. After a while, you’ll be able to whip up a body in whatever pose you want without references. I drew these two tutorial pages without checking references or anything, these are just blind doodles, which shows that practice and the knowledge of structure work wonders! (And that I probably should’ve checked out some muscle references afterall but ehh close enough.)

And now, onto how you can get creative with what you’ve learned.

As it is always, just the sheer shape of a character’s body can be an instant visual indicator of their personality. Use this wisely and strategically. Unconventionality can add to this too. (Toothpick arms on a round-bellied character can look quite comical. Or sometimes it’s just a nice change.) However, though that kind of stuff is a long way from realistic anatomy, I still prefer to always make up a core structure to a given character, however impossible their body may be biologically. This way you won’t have ill-proportioned characters, you won’t lose control over them, and you can pinpoint where their centre of gravity is, and so on. Learn to find the possibilities of breaking free from realism but limit this freedom so that your character still makes sense and doesn’t lose form like a melting pudding. Know how far they can bend, stretch, etc. This would be vital if you were to make the character move. Take this jumping sack, for example:

This was just some weight practice from a few of months ago, I only posted it on my other blog just because it wasn’t anything interesting, really. (Look at it go “woouummmpfh”. ^^) That’s why structure, joints and weights and centres of gravity matter. You can get creative and simplify bodies to whatever extent you feel like but I personally prefer to keep characters make sense - it’s a bit harder to make work but it pays off so much when they can be shaped more dynamically when the need arises!

That’s all, you can find tons of anatomy tutorials and references around the internet and, if you can’t get a chance to go to a firgure drawing class, I’d even suggest doing favours for your friends/family/boyfriends/girlfriends/mysterious neighbours in exchange for them posing for a couple of hours for you. (Or blackmail your crush into it and write in about how it went. Or, don’t take life advice from me and you’ll probably be fine…)

Hope this is helpful and, as always, have fun drawing!

The Advocate's Handwriting - by Bex-Chan

√ Dramione (Draco x Hermione)
√ Setting: 6 years later
√ 1 chapter
√ My score: ❤❤❤❤ (very nice)
√ Rating: M
√ Language: ***** (close to no mistakes)

Seven years later, and she’s there. Right there. Seven years of questions and scribbling her name onto parchment, and she’s close enough to touch, close enough to grab her hand, like he should have the first time.

My notes: Secretly good guy Draco gets saved by Hermione & friends. Oh that ending, I hate the suspense! One very long one-shot with a very unsatisfying end.

Sun Ryder - in game screencaps

OMG i am so pleased with how she looks. I feel like I lucked out because Preset 1 had pretty much all the right features for her look. The hair also should be a little shorter, but this is close enough I am pretty happy!!! :)

Unfortunately, I haven’t really gotten the same happy result with her brother’s face.. I tried my best but it’s no way near the way I picture Moon.. but here’s what I managed anyway in case you’re curious:

TAGGED BY : @the-phantom-crow (Thank you!)

NAME OF YOUR MUSE : Yosuke Hanamura

ONE PICTURE YOU LIKE BEST OF YOUR MUSE’S FC :

TWO HEADCANONS YOU HAVE FOR YOUR MUSE THAT YOU NEVER TOLD ANYONE :

  • Teddie often likes barging into the bathroom when Yosuke’s using it for hydrating reasons and starts excitedly talking about this or that. Most of the time, Yosuke can’t even bring himself to look that disgruntled. It’s bringing him out of his own head.
  • Yosuke and Naoto take the time to play MMOs and voice chat at least once a week, in the dead of the night. On nights when Naoto’s anxious or overthinking things, Yosuke will pull mobs or start joking around, just to hear the detective huff and start ranting about his sub-optimal play. It might get on Naoto’s nerves, but Yosuke’s figured out it’s a great distraction from their real problems— Something they both need.

THREE THINGS THAT YOUR MUSE LIKES DOING IN THEIR FREE TIME :

  • Lounging in the bath/shower/whatever water his grubby little hands can get to.
  • Playing games, both online and off. (MMORPGs, RPGs, and Fighting games are his favorites)
  • Checking out new places, some more dangerous than others…

SEVEN PEOPLE THAT YOUR MUSE LOVES/LIKES :

  • Souji Seta (Romantically)
  • Teddie (Brotherly Affection)
  • Naoto Shirogane (Close Friendship)
  • Chie Satonaka (Close Friendship/Playful Rivalry)
  • Kanji Tatsumi (Close Friendship)
  • Rise Kujikawa (Close Friendship)
  • Katsuragi (Texting Buddy and Normal Friend*TM*)

TWO THINGS YOUR MUSE REGRETS:

  • Almost throwing Namatame into the TV. He thinks back on that one regularly and just… realizes how close he was to going off the deep end.
  • Not living his carefree life prior to the investigation to the its fullest. 

TWO FEARS YOUR MUSE HAS:

  • Large Bodies of Salt Water
  • People confirming what he thinks about himself: That he IS just a monster/animal driven solely by toadish and shadowlike instincts (And the fear that, one day, he’ll lose every ounce of his humanity and hurt someone.)

Fic: The Trouble with Labels

Summary: It’s 2009, and AmazingPhil notices he’s getting a lot of YouTube and Twitter comments from some obsessed kid calling himself “danisnotonfire.” (A prequel to “Creeper” which is an independent one-shot that can be read with absolutely no knowledge of the rest of the series.)

The Trouble with Labels

If the username hadn’t been so simultaneously catchy and stupid, Phil wouldn’t even have noticed right away. But it was memorable enough for him to notice that the same person had started commenting on all of his videos, sometimes even commenting more than once on the same video. And they’d been going back and commenting on all his old ones, too. All of them.

He was no stranger to obsessive fans. Weird as it seemed to him, some people just apparently had nothing better to do with their lives than fixate on nerdy weirdos who put videos up on the internet. He knew it was just part of putting himself out in public like that, but he would never understand why some people got so obsessed with him, of all people! With someone like PJ, it made sense—half his subscribers probably watched his videos with the sound off, just to get to see someone so beautiful. But Phil wasn’t anything special, and he knew he was weird, but he was completely 100% comfortable with that about himself. It just surprised him that so many people apparently found it obsession-worthy.

So when this name “danisnotonfire” started popping up in all his comment notifications, he just shrugged to himself. It was actually pretty flattering when somebody went back to watch and comment on old videos when they first discovered his channel, so he didn’t mind that, but … leaving multiple comments on a single video was edging a bit into creeper territory.

And then the same username showed up on Twitter, commenting on his tweets. As in, all of his tweets. Every single one. And, again, sometimes more than one comment on a single tweet.

Definite creeper, he thought to himself. Probably one of those people who send me hair through the post.

But then some of the comments were actually kind of clever, kind of funny, and he found himself sort of watching for them. And when he actually responded to one of danisnotonfire’s responses to one of his tweets, it started a sort of conversation that he hadn’t intended, a conversation that extended across multiple tweets, and he started to actually kind of like this guy. Because it was apparently a guy, if the user icon was anything to go by. A fairly cute guy, actually. And Phil didn’t even try to lie to himself about the role that fact played in his increasing encouragement of their interaction.

They both get captured and interrogations happen. Due to Finn knowing and understanding how the First Order work he feeds them information little by little - never so much that they’re seen as expendable. He’s just trying to bide his time. 

They realise quickly that focusing on Poe leads to quicker responses. Which I think Poe wouldn’t take very well. He’d hiss at Finn to stay quiet and that he could take it. But Finn knows where this will go.

-

I was thinking, I don’t know if many of you saw Pan but there’s a part in it where Hook gives away one of Tiger Lily’s secrets and she’s fuming at him and he says to her.

“I couldn’t watch you die” to which she says

“You should have closed your eyes”

-

I think Poe would forgive easily enough once they got free and prevented any damage that could have come from the knowledge that was gained. But Finn is so frightened of the FO - how does he feel about his chances if Poe was the one being asked the questions?

Sons was playing in the grass, not far from the caravan where everyone else was, but still hidden between two corn fields. Frisk kept an eye on him from time to time, moving their head to have a better look, every two minutes or so. That should be enough. He was close if anything happened anyway. They were still parano about it though.
Sons was using some walnuts that had fallen from the trees as cars, racing on an imaginary racetrack between the plants. He even had some insects spectators. He was so into it, he forgot about his surroundings. His mind was deep in his own story.

ROM: The kemacite! If we vent plasma from the warp core into the cargo hold, we may be able to start a cascade reaction in the kemacite. Then we can modulate the reaction to create an inversion wave in the warp field and force the ship back into normal space! If I time it just right, I should be able to get us close enough to Earth to make an emergency landing.

Quark and Nog look at each other, hoping one of them will back up Rom’s theory. Unfortunately, neither of them has any idea of what he’s saying.

QUARK: Rom, you’re a genius!
ROM: You think so?
QUARK: How should I know? I have no idea what you’re talking about. Just do it!
