but something i can't quite place

why i love (all) the signs
  • (pisces sun/scorpio moon/aquarius rising/venus dom pov)
  • aries: as hot headed and impulsive as you guys are, you are really supportive and loyal friends. you will beat up anyone who decides to hurt someone you love or care for. you are super fun to hang out with too! i have never met a boring aries, and i don't think i ever will. aries make awesome friends. if you want someone to beat up that jerk that has been harassing since last week, go to an aries.
  • taurus: honestly just the coolest people ever. not only are you guys super attractive, but your also really and laid back and chill. you're also very dependable and i can't help but look up to you guys for that. not to mention that you're quite smart as well. you might not be the easiest person to deal with when it comes to arguments or making decisions (you can be quite stubborn, which is a good and bad thing!), but you guys are still awesome people and i love you guys.
  • gemini: idk why but there is something so charming and attractive about you guys that i just adore. you're creative and fun people, and your hearts are (most of the time) in the right place. your friendly and accepting and that's probably the reason why every single gemini sun or moon i have met is so popular! not to mention that every single gemini i have met has some kind of talent that they are really good at. whether it's filming or cooking or cheerleading, all of you guys have some kind of talent, and you are always good at it. i almost envy how lovable you twins are. keep it up gemini folks, you're one of my favorite signs.
  • cancer: not as innocent as you think, but they are still very huggable and nice people. cancers are either really shy and quiet or really optimistic and cheerful. some cancers that i have met are even snarky and sarcastic (kind of like a scorpio or aquarius) but are still affectionate and nice to be around. i love cancers because they are the kind of friends that will make you cookies for no real reason, or will give you hugs when you're feeling down (or just because they want to). cancers that i have met also have a very weird sense of humor that you can't help but love. these people are really cool. go hug a cancer.
  • leo: either loads of chill, or no chill. leo people will try their best to make everyone happy, but won't go all the way if they don't want to. they are generous and helpful people. surprisingly, i have not once met a leo that was popular and full of themselves. in fact, most leos i have met are pretty humble (MOST not all). they are also very funny and friendly as well. leos are the kind of people that will greet you with a bear hug every time you see them. in my opinion, leos would make awesome dads. they are really cool friends too. they've always got your back, too.
  • virgo: kind of like cancers, all virgos that i have met have a very weird and goofy sense of humor that you just love for some reason. they are also not as worrisome and uptight as predicted. i love virgos mainly because of their humor and sarcasm. they can be a little prickly at times, but they are one of those friends that will support you no matter what stupid bull crap you decide to do. they will get you out of a mess that you got yourself into, they will lend you a pen if you forgot yours at home or lost yours in science class. virgos might be a little reserved or shy at first but they slowly open up to you and begin to show affection. i personally find this part of them adorable.
  • libra: cheerful, friendly, and goofy. a libra is the kind of friend that will brighten your day when you are in a funk, and will take you out somewhere for whatever reason. they are without a doubt the best people to party with, but you might want to keep an eye one them...they can easily get carried away when drunk! most libras that i have met are also hopeless romantics, and will gush about some old couple they saw holding hands while walking down the street. they also got sass. libras are really fun and energetic people, and make super cool friends.
  • scorpio: my god you guys are awesome. your funny and sarcastic, but also supportive and kind. similar to an aries, scorpios will beat up some kid that has been bullying you or your ex partner that decided to break up with you over the phone. scorpios are really cool (and kind of reckless) friends that are lovable in every way. they can easily become the life of the party, but they can also be quite introverted as well. it just depends on the person really. scorpios are also passionate and loyal lovers, which is rare to find these days. scorpios are really amazing people, and deserve all the love in the world.
  • sagittarius: for a person who lives in a family where half of the people are born under the sign of sagittarius, i have met my fair share of sags. they are friendly and caring like a leo but also a bit reckless and impulsive like an aries. i love sags because of how lovable they are. idk why but there is something so attractive and lovable about sagittarius folks that makes me so happy when i meet one. like libras, sags have lots of sass and are really goofy. they are the kind of friends that will take you out on a car ride when you're feeling down or for no reason at all. sags are really just super fun people that you can't help but love.
  • capricorn: i have met all different kinds of caps. cheerful ones, shy ones, awkward ones, energetic ones. i have only met one introverted capricorn. capricorns are without a doubt the kind of person you want as a friend. they are not only smart cookies, but they will do special things for you like buy you a random present for no real occasion or help you study for that next math test. they do small things for you that i really appreciate...not to mention that is kind of cute. in fact, capricorns have their own little cute quirks and habits. i have met so many different kinds of caps, but the one thing they all have in common is how great friends they can be. if you want a friend for life, go to a capricorn.
  • aquarius: my favorite sign. they are friendly and goofy and just so lovable! they are hilarious and very cool people. they are quirky and fun in so many ways, and i have never met an aquarius that wasn't interesting! aquarius folks have such a fun personality! i can't enough of them. like geminis, almost every aquarius i have met has some special thing or talent about them that they are always good at. they are also good at dealing with people. they can also be a little rebellious, which for a pisces like myself, i find really cool and attractive. aquarius people are simply amazing, and are without a doubt my favorite sign.
  • pisces: and then there are these guys. very nice people, without a doubt. the thing i love most about them is their creativity and humor. i have yet to meet a pisces who didn't have a thing for one of the arts. they are also very nice people as well. some of the nicest people i have met are pisceans! they are also very accepting. it doesn't matter whether your a boy, girl, gay, trans, bi, preppy, emo, hipster...they can become friends with any people with any personality (unless those people are jerks to them). pisceans are also really funny! they are such great people with their hearts always in the right place. i have yet to meet a pisces i didn't like.

Something that I’ve found kind of interesting about the tablets you find throughout Hyper Light Drifter is… well, here; look at one.

Hello! Sorry for the random question, but for one of your pieces with the caption "nosotros vivimos la vida" (it's a painting of viktuuri), did u do something special with the lighting? It looks amazing, but also has a strange (a good strange!!) effect to it, but I can't quite place my finger on it!

no problem! 

I was testing out a new coloring way actually. Forgive me if this doesn’t sound clear but basically what I did is fill out the entire lineart with the lightest color(the color of the highlights)

and then I colored out the places where I want my dark areas to be, with a few extra shadows here and there 

and then to try to spice it up i added an overlay layer

you can also color the linearts 

and that’s it i guess? You could also look up color theory to make the colors work better together(I still don’t understand it myself..)

But I hope that helps!

The thing with steven being like 'no we can't fight back violently that would make us just as bad as them' reminds me a lot of avatar the last airbender - aang finds a way to stop the evil dude without actually killing him. I think su is trying to do something like that but for whatever reason that I can't quite place my finger on it feels so much more crappy and forced than the way it was in atla (maybe because the diamonds are much worse than the villain in atla? Idk)

it’s EXACTLY because the diamonds are much worse. and that’s saying a lot ‘cause jfc was ozai an awful dude in atla. i also think in atla there wasn’t as much emphasis on “but we’d be just as bad as theeeeeem” thing. ‘cause, quite frankly, that is not true for atla or su’s situation. fighting back against your oppressors NEVER makes you “just as bad as them”.

aang knew this and did what he could to defeat ozai. steven just… what IS steven doing to fight the diamonds?? what are the CRYSTAL GEMS doing to fight the diamonds??

(I can't wait to see the new scenarios!! *roll over*) Ok I have this scenario but it's quite specific! (It takes place during college years) Hanamiya has been with his s/o since highschool but it's the first time they are coming to see him after basketball practice. Hanamiya's teammates didn't even know they existed and treat them like they are some dumb fan or something. How does Hanamiya react?

Entering the universities gym armed with refreshments for your boyfriends new team you scanned the room, unable to see Makoto anywhere. He’d been on the team for a year and had already stolen the captains spot, hell bent on implementing his strategies with zero resistance. Over time he’d taken the focus from discreetly making fouls to purely working on setting up his webs meaning you could happily attend his matches, not that that had stopped you in the beginning. A gaggle of young men made their way over, you could easily tell they were the basketball team but they hadn’t a clue of who you were as one of them began smiling a flirty smile and even had the nerve to place his arm around you once the group had practically surrounded you. “Another fan come to bring us some relief. I bet you don’t even understand the game sweetheart. How about you and I go out for dinner later and I explain to you?”. The words felt nostalgic as you thought of the way Makoto spoke to you similarly the first time you met, you were about to deliver the same verbal smack down you gave your boyfriend all them years ago when the slam of a door caught everyone’s attention. The sound of his footsteps reverberated up the high ceilings as he slowly stalked over to his team, eyes flashing dangerously when he saw that apes arm draped around you and your obvious discomfort. His eyes met yours, beckoning you to come to him and you happily complied, shrugging off the arms trying to trap you. The pair of you had been together so long you could almost read each others thoughts; deciding to mess with the team you walked straight up to your boyfriend and allowed him to engulf you in a hot, prolonged kiss whilst whispers of “how does he do it” met you ears. Once he was satisfied he released you, glancing over to his team who were all looking at the boy that had touched you. His hoarse laugh sent chills down their spines before he barked out orders “All of you 20 laps around the building now”. They siphoned out one by one until only you remained, his arms firmly clasped around your waist, hands cupped around your rear “don’t worry, I won’t push them too far. I just need to teach them to respect what’s mine”

Potters: Lily with teenage Harry, for anon

“I’m a sixteen year-old man, Mum. I’m pretty confident I can comb my own hair just fine,” Harry smiles at Lily, equal parts exasperated and amused.

She attacks his unruly mop with a fresh comb and pretends like she can’t hear him.

“Ow, mu-um!” He protests as she yanks on a particularly stubborn black tuft that just won’t listen.

“Sorry, love, but you have got to look dapper for your first date. We can’t have Lily Evans’ son running around, looking like a twit with too much hair, now, can we?”

“Nobody looks dapper, anymore, mum,”

Lily brushes the overgrown fringe away from his forehead and steps back with a satisfied smile on her face.

“Why, aren't you the –”

“-fittest bloke in town? Yeah, he bloody well better be! He’s my –”

Our son, after all.” Lily cuts her husband off, trying to shoot him a stern glance but lips tugging up despite herself. James leans against the door, arms folded, grinning broadly at his little family.

“Thanks, mum. Thanks, dad. Now may I have your kind permission to get my arse out of here, please?”

”Language, Harry! And James.”

”Sorry.” they echo immediately, identical guilty smiles on their equally identical faces.

“Now, Harry, dear, remember, Ginny’s a lovely young lady and I want you to treat her like one. Don’t forget to open doors, pull chairs out, compliment her –”

“-kiss her goodnight –”

James!” Lily scolds, outraged. James only grins wider, running a hand through his hair.

Harry chuckles. He loves it when his parents bicker; they are bloody hilarious.

“Sir, yes, sir. Bye, now; I’ll be back before eleven, don’t wait up!” He gives Lily a hurried kiss on her cheek, salutes James and starts making his way downstairs.

Just when he is about to leave, his dad appears.

“Do your old man proud, would you, son?” His eyes are hazel pools of pure pride and love and something else that Harry can't quite place.

“Of course, dad. I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”

James bursts into guffaws. “That’s my boy; off you go, then.”

And so, Harry Potter sets off on his first date, turning back at the little gate, just once, to wave at his smiling mum and dad.

It's really funny to me how whenever I'm scrolling down on my dash and a project by a brazilian architect comes up I always know it's brazilian, even before I read the names and without having ever seen it - I suppose there's something typical about them that I can't quite put my finger on but somehow recognize? Do people from other nationalities experience this too? Can we all soft of recognize the visual language of where we come from?

I think so. We absorb every detail of the place where we grow up, and every place its unique: the quality of the light, the texture and color of the materials, the geography, the flora, and many other details unique to that culture or location. They are part of us even if we are not fully aware of it. Its less about the style of the architecture or the design but more about the texture of the place, a visual language uniquely tied to the sense of place.

So the rewatch continues, and I noticed something quite adorable in S1x10. Hannibal always insists that his patients, and up to this point Will as well, sit opposite him in the chair when they have conversations. But this scene feels like Hannibal is trying to be extra accommodating and treats Will like a little princess and lets him sit in his own grown up chair, letting him draw with his crayons. What’s missing is a glass of warm milk and some lovely people-cookies. Don’t worry baby, papa is here.

OMG! I think I just had a heart attack from feels... Can we talk about the sexy strip dance moves Shai used to throw her jacket when she put it off?? And then she asked Theo to adjust something on her neck - with that killing backless dress? I think she was trying to make him go crazy :-D and if you ask me she quite succeeded... :-D the way he was holding his hand and was waiting for her, I can't! I just can't with these two! Seriously, bless you, bless this gifset!

ikr? so sexy

i’m still waiting for a video where we can see this from a better angle.

I feel like every time I tell people I'm gonna get an education to become a teacher people get this smug face and I feel like everyone think I should be doing something better and I keep thinking about the if u can u do if u can't u teach phrase and I think I want to do it but I'm so insecure and I feel like it's not a good enough thing to be...

teaching is so incredibly important. i’m in a fine arts degree and that could take me a few places but i would be so happy to teach art, or english. i think that’s a dope aspiration and people have to stop seeing teaching as something that’s done when you couldn’t quite make it any bigger because. it’s So. important. and wonderful. if you have a gift for helping young adults understand something greater, why not utilise it?? that’s not a shortcut, that’s not lazy, thats a near selfless act and frankly there needs to be more of it. fuckin go get em.

first io9 recap comment: "Can someone please help me figure out why the Abby/Ichabod relationship has gone from totally platonic to suddenly leaking irritating romance all over the place? Are the actors boning IRL or something? Because I can't quite put my finger on what, exactly, has changed, but something very obviously has." and it's clearly not even from an ichabbie or miharie shipper!


I mean i wouldn’t say there was such a sudden change. Tom and Nicole have had insane chemistry from day one and in the show you can obviously see that. I don’t think Ichabod and Abbie have had a purely totally platonic moment yet.

Hi there! I really adore all your Happy Homes! But I have a small question.. Whenever I want to place tiles outside the house of a villager, it at some point will say ''That I can't place anymore items''? Do you know why that is? Because your ''yards'' are tiled and you have plenty of items in your yard. Am I doing something wrong? Thank you! x

Thanks so much!

Yeah, there’s an item limit for rooms and exteriors- 64 I believe. I bump into it a lot, but I have a few small tricks to make it work anyway. Some examples!

I really wanted the walkways to be the same gray qr pattern as the sidewalk, but the item limit wasn’t having any of that, so I used a rug. It doesn’t look quite as nice as I’d like, but completeness>>>>>level of detail every time.

I usually try to put down patterns as rugs instead of single tiles, due to space limitations, but that’s not always possible, like for this rice paddy. Needless to say I ran into the limit really quickly, so I removed all the tiles that you can’t see through normal play (notice all the weird pattern gaps behind the stalks- there’s a lot more that you can’t see from this angle, there’s p. much nothing in two entire rows). figure out what doesn’t strictly need to be there, and cut corners relentlessly

Here’s an exterior that I helped someone else design- theirs (top) looks really good, but all the individual road/sidewalk tiles ate up their item limit. My version mock-up (below) replaces the 1x1 roads for a 3x2 rug, 1x1 tables for 1x2 tables, and 1x1 walls for 1x2 cabinets that serve the same purpose, and I didn’t even run into the item limit. It doesn’t look nearly as nice, but it fills up the space a lot more efficiently.

The item limit doesn’t let you make an entire full-size chessboard outside, with all the pieces and the white/black tiles, but if you just leave the white tiles as grass you don’t hit the limit, and it still looks intentional instead of incomplete.

Wait so she was supposed to cancel her plans with her boyfriend and his mother (something they’ve probably been planing for quite some time now) because Barry showed up unannounced at her work instead of calling/texting her before to agree on a meeting time & place
