but the end results pretty neat i think

When I was really young, I bought a plastic model kit of a human skull (I guess my mother must have bought it for me now that I think about it). Made by the Skillcraft Company, it was pretty detailed and complex, some of the teeth were in two pieces and required assembly. The end result was a neat anatomically correct human skull, and the coup de grâce - it was made from glow-in-the-dark plastic. Anything that glows green in the dark is an instant obsession to a boy. I spent way too much time studying it in the dark… seeing how bright I could get it to glow by leaving it on the top of a lamp for a really long time, or making dark hand prints on it by keeping my hand on it while bathing it in light.

One night after turning off the lights and going to bed, my brother and I heard a noise from the closet. It was one of those moments where you freeze and attempt to process what’s happening. Then we heard the closet door slowly begin to open. Out floated a glowing green skull in a pitch black room. It was a combination of horrified screams and uncontrollable laughter as it floated towards us and dove at us. It made figure-8’s in the air before it came back for another attack. You could hear my dad stifling his laughter at the end of the assault as the skull opened our bedroom door and floated out and away.

Murdoc Niccals:

  • When you ask him if he wants to bake vanilla cupcakes with you, he busts a nut thinks that you’re going to be baking erotic cakes. Why else would you ask him to do something like that?
  • “Murdoc, don’t mix your favorite pastimes and my favorite pastimes together, please.”
  • Instead of measuring the ingredients out, he eyeballs every one of them.
  • “How much water did you just slip into the batter?” “About… This much, yeah?” “Murdoc, that’s literally way more than 5 cups.” smh
  • When the cupcakes are done, they may not be edible pretty, but it’s honestly the thought that counts.
  • When everything is said and done, Mudz snaps a pic and posts it on social media, filtering the food so it looks better than how it does irl.


  • When you ask 2D if he would be interested in baking lemon meringues with you, he rushes on over. He has a sweet tooth for both you and goodies like that.
  • Unlike Murdoc, 2D tries his best to make sure every ingredient is perfectly proportioned.
  • When you and 2D end up mixing all of the mix together instead of folding the lemon zest in, problems occur. You also add 2 tablespoons of vanilla instead of 2 teaspoons. this is a true story when i baked meringues for the first time don’t judge me i also didnt fold the ingredients ahahh
  • When you slip them into the oven, they don’t bake; they spill.
  • For being the best boyfriend, Stu is the official taste tester. 
  • “They’re a bit… Um… Gooey? And, um, taste really strongly of vanilla, an’ they harden when you chew ‘em, um… Please hand me the trash can, love.”
  • When you taste one and spit it back into a napkin, you chuck the remnants of the batch into the trash. Maybe boxes of brownie powder is your best option, huh?


  • When you walk into her making ramen noodles, you lend a helping hand.
  • Stringing the dough is your favorite thing to do, and hers as well; even though it gets on the floor and into your shirt, it’s still fun to whip it at said person when they whip it at you.
  • Though making noodles isn’t baking, I thought it was cute, ok
  • When you put the noodles in boiling water, the two of you end up playing with the leftover dough, eating half of it to the point of major stomach aches.
  • When the ramen is prepared, it’s pretty good! No complaints, A+… Noodle snapchats the results, sending the pic as part of her daily streaks.
  • tag urself i pulled this one out of my ass, i don’t think this is how you make ramen noodles, i think it’s how you make an italian dish that i forgot the name of

Russel Hobbs:

  • When Russel invites you to bake a blueberry pie with him, you agree.
  • Russ is pretty organized, so everything the two of you do is neat and clean as well. Perfect measurements and just the right amount of loves does so much to a dish.
  • The two of you take on different jobs, liking while you make the dough for and roll it out, Russ prepares the blueberry filling, boiling it in a pot and adding sugar from time to time.
  • When you slip the pie into the oven, the two of you probably make coffee and talk until the wait is over.
  • When the pie is done, it looks almost pristine; it smells almost as good and, tastes even better.

well this is the new addition to the salad bar. i was thinking that going full white is unoriginal af, but in the end it’s so neat and pretty and makes me feel even unique, dare i say.

i spoiled her with so many things. two kits, dreamthistle greatsword, celestial dye, the crossing, dryad set??? when will i stop? ?? we may never know.

her name is Evharit, she was born AFTER the Pact crashed, so she’s naive and completely missed out on the fun disaster that were sylvari on that day. she’s curious and kind, sadly the stigma that Mordremoth brought resulted in people distancing themselves from her - so her best friends are her minions.

(ftm) do you know of any makeup tutorials to make my face look more masculine without assuming that every afab knows a lot about makeup? I really want to use makeup to make myself look more like a boy, but I don't understand the terminology at all.

Ren says:

Hey! I just saw this video today - I think it does a good job with not assuming you know makeup stuff, tells you exactly what everything is doing towards the goal of making you look more masculine, and the end result is pretty neat too.

Hope that helps! :)


Sorry for the lack of updates! I was down with a bad cold for a whole week and didn’t update anything. I didn’t get much done in general but I did manage to bead this headpiece, which i’m pretty happy with so far!

The piece is based on medieval/renaissance headpieces, but i’m not aiming for accuracy here. It’s just a design that I thought would look neat. The base is felt interfacing with wire sewn into the edges. It’s covered with upholstery velvet and shantung. I embellished it with fake pearls, glass seed beads, and a resin gem.

I’m going to add skewers to the top and a veil. I think the end result will be neat!
