but whatevs you get the gist

if anyone is confused about this net neutrality thing, the gist of it is that cable companies are trying to get the right to decrease/increase speeds to different websites.

right now, the speed is the same for whatever website you’re visiting, from facebook to pornhub.

so what would an end to neutrality mean? it means they could charge you extra to get a cable package that doesn’t throttle netflix’s speed. it means your conservative parents could buy the package that throttles pages with Adult Content. it means your cable company could increase speed for amazon and decrease it for small online stores (after
a hefty donation from amazon of course)

and because all roads lead to hell, they could throttle speeds for reliable news sources and increase speeds for fox news.

you would click on an article and it wouldn’t load. you would go back and pick a different website, this one with a Better Opinion. you would only see the Good Opinions. and if you weren’t paying attention, you wouldn’t even realize it.

at best it will cost you extra money or disrupt your netflix/porn habits. at worst it will lead us even further into fascist hell. don’t let them take away net neutrality.

not to be That Bitch and overanalyze every one of keith and lance’s interactions, but in season four episode one, lance was the most vocally upset about keith being away with the blade. obviously everyone else was, too, but lance kept bringing it up, saying keith was going to miss a show or team voltron couldn’t beat someone without him and like…we already know lance covers up a lot of what he’s actually feeling with lies/bravado/whatever, so i’m fairly certain that lance was upset keith wasn’t with team voltron not because of a subpar show or a hard villain to beat (though that’s probably partially it), but because, well, he likes keith.

(WARNING: SPOILERS) If you aren’t watching Dark on Netflix you’re missing out on one of the best streaming shows ever created. SO GO WATCH! It’s complicated but worth it! 

Ok, so while I was watching I had to take notes on the families so I could keep track. Here’s what I have so far. I’m praying we’ll be able to fill in the blanks with a season two (fingers crossed!), but until then please excuse my “???”s. If you have any of my blank spots filled in or have any ideas let me know!

Also I know this isn’t a classic genogram, since the males are supposed to be first or whatever, but you get the gist. 

100 Intentional Things Challenge

ages and ages ago i got an ask about how i manage to be productive every single day. since then i’ve done a lot of thinking about productivity and about life in general, and my mindset has changed. my focus have shifted from “do something productive every day” to “do something intentional every day”. hence this challenge!

i’ve been doing this for about five weeks now, but i thought it would be nice to make an actual challenge out of it, both to share it with all of you and to give my social media posting some structure. so here is what i’m thinking:

  • much like 100 days of productivity, this is a 100 day challenge - but feel free to adapt it however you want (intentional october ?? anyone ?? just me ?? okay)
  • the name “100 intentional things” is slightly misleading, but “100 days of at least 1 intentional thing per day” is hella long - and look at it this way, if you complete the 100 days, you’ll have done at least 100 intentional things
  • “intentional” for me can mean something planned, but it can also mean something i decide in the moment. spending a day in bed because i need a rest day is something i would class as intentional, whereas ending up spending the day in bed because i’m scrolling tumblr and am too lazy to get up and do the things i’d planned, is not something i’d class as intentional - you get my gist ??
  • feel free to post a picture of you doing your intentional thing (be it studying, binging netflix, sleeping or whatever), also feel free to just write a little text post about it, and tag it “100 intentional things”
  • also obviously feel free to do more than one intentional thing per day !! most days you will. but we all need rest days, or have days where we’re just not up for much. in that case, one intentional thing is enough

and that’s it !! just do at least one intentional thing per day and let us know about, easy as that x

Taehyung loves the world, even if he can only watch it through the window.

He sits on the sill with a leg crossed and the other dangling off the edge, face turned towards the wall of glass, sometimes for hours. You cannot see his eyes as his hair covers them whole. The only indication he is not lost to the world as the few patients you’ve encountered is his ability to sense your presence.

The first time you see him look at something else is when you stop right in front of his room, unsure whether to knock and break his trance or come again when it’s dark and he’s having his dinner on the bed, but before you have the chance to decide, he turns to look at you and smiles.

anonymous asked:

please DO elaborate...... 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

From my tododeku hc post:

they’re soft and sweet in their first year, ridiculously hot and heavy in their second, and by third year, they are down right steady and known across UA as being “the strongest powercouple of the generation” (it is kind of embarrassing when people say that but they secretly love it)

Ok, so what I mean by all this is as follows:

First year: In my mind, they wouldn’t start actually dating till their first year is nearly over but ANYWAYS, when they do start dating, it’s really little things like ice cream dates after school. It’s hooking pinkys underneath the lunch table when they sit next to each other and blushing about it. It’s soft hand kisses when they part ways after school to walk home. It’s coming home with the dreamy-ist smiles on their faces. It’s the way todoroki blushes slightly and smiling softly when he talks to Momo about how his date with Deku was. It’s the way Deku’s face lights up when he talks about Todoroki to Iida and Uraraka. It’s holding hands when they think nobody can see. It’s when one catches the other staring at them from across the classroom and they both blush like crazy, Deku hiding his face in his hands. You know, pure and wholesome shit like that

Second year: At this point, they are way comfortable in their relationship and it’s less fluttery nerves and more hormone driven want. I’m basically working off the “horny high school boys” trope bc im so weak for that but you know how it goes. It just starts with them being more open about the fact that their dating and so they’re less nervous about PDA. They hold hands A LOT. They’ll hang off of each other (cue the “Todoroki holding deku by the hips” headcanon). One day in homeroom, they not-so-subtly end up sitting next to each  other even though they know they have assigned seats. Aizawa comes in and looks over the class like he does and he doesn’t say anything but he’s rolling his eyes. So, as you can imagine, this all develops into them being way more touchy than last year. Everyone can tell. Deku brings Todoroki home to meet his mom and have dinner (Deku’s mom is thrilled her son is so happy but that’s all matters for a different post).

 Their kisses evolve to the point where they’re getting at some deeper feeling than before and all they want to do is explore that feeling. Because it feels damn good. So before you know it, they’re stumbling into homeroom a few minutes late with ruffled hair and red faces bc yeah maybe they were making out behind a building and lost track of time, ok? They do stop being late for class but there’s rarely a moment after class that their hands aren’t all over each other.

There’s also the matter of the rival tension that’s inevitably between them. At first Deku is terrified that it’ll wreck their relationship but it sort of does the opposite… they figure out that it’s kind of a turn on…. Cue the sports festival and an avalanche of sexual tension. The entirety of both classes A and B end up having to oggle at it for the whole event because it’s very rare that they are put on the same teams. At nearly every break between events and such, Todoroki has Deku up against a wall kissing him crazy, the adrenaline of the games mixing with the hormonal haze that drives them together like magnets. He does have to let Deku be though as the one on one fights start because he knows how much Deku likes to take analysis notes. Without speculating on year 2 sports festival results, I think I’ll leave this here ^^ 

So, the year rolls on. There’s probably a class trip that’s at least semi-relaxing, maybe?? things get steamy ofc wtf else are class tips for.

 Terushima and other classmates start prying with little shame, asking if they’ve done it yet, had sex. Deku is slightly scandalized. Todoroki just rolls his eyes. Neither of them say so, but yes they have done the deed but just once, at Todoroki’s house one weekend when no one was home. They were under the guise of a train/study weekend, which wasn’t a lie… they just happened to also have sex as well…

so yeah, you get the gist of 2nd year ;)

Third year: By now, most of UA knows they’re boyfriends. At the very least they know that if you get pitted against either one of them for whatever reason, You’re probably fucked and if you were to go against them as a pair, well, you’re really fucked. They’re dead serious about their hero careers. They’re also dead serious about each other. Freshman and their own classmates alike look up to them as #relationshipgoals

They are way less distracted by each other than the previous year, buckling down on studying and training and more studying. They’re still stupidly in love, obviously but it isn’t all shiny, new urges so it’s less “oh my god what is this feeling?? i want more of it right now” and more “God, I can’t wait till this training exercise is over so I can flirt with my boyfriend”

Oh also, they LIVE for bragging about each other, ok. Even to people they already know like, I can imagine Deku getting first place in the sports festival that year and Todoroki doesn’t shut up about it for weeks. Class A turns into that meme of “I love–” “Yes, we know, you love Deku. You are in love with Izuku Midoriya who won the third year Sports Festival competition. you love him, Deku, the next symbol of peace among humanity, we get it…” and it’s beautiful. Deku is the exact same way, btw. Basically I see them walking though halls, holding hands and standing tall and everyone’s heads turn to watch them as they go by :’)

McCree

  • He is one heavy sleeper. But if there is one thing that’ll wake him up easy. Its your moaning
  • He will tease a little. Doing whatever you say in your sleel.
  • So he ends up in between your legs.
  • Honestly by the time you wake up you will have no idea if it was a dream or not.
  • Considering you wake up to McCree still between your legs

Gabriel

  • The lightest sleeper.
  • But this is something he would have beat himself up over if he missed.
  • He loves talking you through it. Imagining whats going on in that lil dome of yours
  • Once you moan “Gabriel! Ah deeper~” he gets the gist and is a lil riled up himself
  • Will lowkey wake you up. You got him all hot and bothered! Pluss hey doing it awake is probably more fun then dreaming it

Genji

  • Oh boy. This is something he is not used to
  • But good god hearing you moan his name even in deep sleep makes him very excited
  • His hands will wander a bit and do all the work for you.
  • All you need to do is dream. His fingers will take care of the rest of your more physical needs
  • Once you hit climax once or twice he has had enough and will wake you up for some fun timea

Hanzo

  • A pin hitting the floor could wake this poor man up
  • But oh boy is he a mix of happy and embarrassed to see you like this
  • He will watch for a bit. Enjoying the way your face contorts with your pleasure
  • He wont wake you up. Why ruin such a perfect dream
  • Him on the other hand. Has a date with a shower and his right hand.

WHAT-TO-DO GUIDE IF: YOU’RE DYING AND YOUR TEST IS TOMORROW

Even the very best of students have crammed at least once in their lives (don’t deny it!). Maybe it’s because you went out instead of studying or because you really are too busy to study. Whatever the reasons are, crack your knuckles, take a deep breath, and get ready because we are getting down to business (to defeat the Huns lol)

When a Another Guy Flirts With You, But You Can’t Tell He’s Flirting (BTS)

Requested by a lovely anon <3 (like you’re totally oblivious to the other guy flirting, and bts is not having it)

*Don’t own the gif/s yo*

Author: Taebaby

NAMJOON 남준:  He’d know you were a bit blind when it came to other people flirting with you (first hand experience) so  he wouldn’t get mad that you weren’t doing anything, but would instead walk up and rest his arm on the dude’s shoulder, giving it a squeeze. He’d immediately introduce himself as your boyfriend and revel in the disappointment in the guys face

YOONGI 윤기: He knew how you were, so he figured he’d just take care of the guy himself. He’d come up all casual and wrap his arms around you, but not say anything since he was already being pretty clear. But when the dude continued to not get the hint, I think he’d get fed up and just blatantly tell him to leave you alone (even if he shocked you with his rudeness at first, he’d explain later)

HOSEOK 호석:  Jealous switch ON. He would not allow it. He wouldn’t exactly make it subtle, but he wouldn’t be as blunt as Yoongi and tell the dude to leave. He’d prob just get real inquisitive with the guy ‘What are you talking about? How do you know each other? I’m her boyfriend, you know?’

SEOKJIN 석진:  I think he’d find it kinda funny watching another guy trying (and failing) to flirt with you. He wouldn’t be too concerned, until it started looking more like the guy was annoying you. Then he might walk over and (quietly) let the guy know you aren’t interested in talking

JIMIN 지민:  He might get a bit fidgety seeing some other guy trying to talk his girl up. He knew you couldn’t tell what Snake™ was trying to do, but he could and it fired him up like nothing else. I don’t even think he’d say anything, he’d just walk up with the most intimidating look on his face

TAEHYUNG 태형: I don’t think Taehyung would be too worried about, knowing how you are. If anything he might even go introduce himself in a friendly way and just let the guy know your taken- but he’d pull you a bit closer for good measure

JUNGKOOK 정국: I think right off the bat it would make him uneasy, seeing another guy looming over you, grinning like a cat- all the while you’re continuing on with whatever you’re doing, talking to the guy but not getting the gist. It would make him simultaneously jealous and worried, and he’d power towards the two of you like a train

anonymous asked:

If you're still getting hcs, may I ask for one where they're hanging out with Nancy and Jonathan and the kids and at first they're a bit on edge bc of Billy but they're all blown away by how gentle, caring and protective he actually is towards Steve? Hope you have a nice day xx

jfsdfj ffuujck

imagine like a big group get-together at steve’s place during a weekend his parents are gone. the d&d party (the kids) are all hanging out and having fun, and steve invited billy, nancy, and jonathan over bc they’re his closest friends. 

the kids are swimming, screaming and yelling and having fun. they splash water on each other, they laugh, they smile. they’re carefree. the older kids watch fondly as they talk amongst themselves, slowly sipping on a beer. everything still seems a little surreal to nancy and jonathan, starting with the fact that they were now somewhat friends with billy hargrove, to the fact that steve and billy were dating. the kids were easy to accept that steve was dating a guy – it just took them longer to come to terms with the fact that steve was dating billy. but billy apologized to all of them, and the kids eventually came around.

the sun was hanging high above them, and the clock was ticking towards lunchtime. the kids had been playing in the water for some time now, and it was only a matter of time before they started complaining about wanting lunch. steve told them that he was going to order some pizza and be right back. billy, who was sitting next to steve, gently lifted his arm from around steve’s waist and allowed him to leave, eyes following steve all the way inside the house. nancy and jonathan looked at each other, knowing what each other were thinking. billy was strangely gentle towards steve in a way they’d never seen before, or would’ve expected. 

and billy’s tenderness continued throughout the day. one by one, the kids started to notice it as well, but steve and billy continued on as if nothing seemed out of the blue.

dustin and lucas exchanged looks when billy wiped the pizza sauce from the corner of steve’s mouth.

max and eleven exchanged looks when billy smiled at steve in genuine happiness, doe eyes and all.

mike and will exchanged looks when billy immediately took off his shirt to wipe off steve when he spilled his beer on his shirt.

“ok,” max finally blurt out. “why are you acting gross and mushy like this?” billy automatically stiffened.

“i don’t know what the fuck you’re on, max, but fuck off,” he snapped. the rest of them looked nervously at each other.

“no, you’ve been all lovey-dovey with steve,” she continued. “i get the two of you are dating but why are you acting like… this?” 

“because I can,” he snarled. “i don’t question whatever the fuck you do with your little boyfriend, so stay the fuck out of my business, maxine.” billy crushed the empty beer can in his hand and threw it violently on the cement, and stomped inside, ears turning red.

Challenge...maybe?

The challenge would be called Summer Escape

I’d give the list of destinations and you would pick a location like the examples below. That’s where your fic would take place.

Whatever happens there would be up to you. Fluff, Smut, Angst, etc.

An angsty secret comes to light when you’re in Belize with Jared? 

You get into some delicious trouble with Dean, a handsome stranger while vacationing in Greece?

You and Jensen transition from friends to forbidden lovers on a trip to Napa Valley?

Basically that’s the gist. Would anyone be interested?

I Do...Hate You//Derek Hale

Characters: Derek Hale, Scott McCall, Stiles Stilinski, Malia Tate, Lydia Martin, Reader.

*REQUESTED FROM PROMPT LIST*

Derek Hale was a grade A douche bag. You never understood the appeal. He constantly smarted off to you, not once had said anything nice to you.

“If we go in here.” Scott points at the map in front of you. “We can sneak up on them.”

“I don’t know, it seems too easy.” You look at the younger boy.

“We need easy. We can’t keep doing things the hard way because you think it makes more sense.” Derek says.

You turn to face him, crossing your arms. “We don’t do them because I think it makes more sense. We do them because I don’t want anyone to get killed. I know you’ve lost your pack members but I won’t lose mine.” You turn back around, rolling your eyes.

You went in the easy way like Derek said, they were waiting for you. You’re currently up against another pack. They’re all older, and are in Beacon Hills because they say your pack doesn’t follow the standard code. Whatever that means. They say they’re here to train you, and teach you the ways of a pack.

“No one ever listens to Y/N. No, I never want to take the easy way.” You say, peeling your blood-soaked shirt from your body.

“What about all the times we missed the easy way? Huh?” Derek glares at you, his ripped shirt in his hand. Whoa. You’d never seen him shirtless.

“We almost died and you’re seriously asking me that?”

“Guys just stop fighting. We can talk at my house.” Scott climbs into the Jeep with Stiles.

“I don’t want to talk to him.”

“Seriously? You’re acting like you’re four years old.” Derek rolls his eyes.

You flip him off as you climb into the back seat of the Jeep.

When you get back to Scott’s you’re met by the alpha of the other pack.

“I need to speak with Derek Hale.” She says as she walks down Scott’s front steps.

Derek walks up behind you, “What do you want?”

“I need to speak to you. Alone.”

You all exchange looks before going inside the house, leaving Derek.

He comes inside thirty minutes later. He grabs your arm and pulls you up the stairs. “Watch it!” You push him off of you.

He gives you a once-over.

“What?” You snap.

“Marry me.”

“What the hell?” You push him away.

“We have to get married.”

“I don’t think we do.”

“Will you just shut up and let me explain?” Derek sighs. “In order for us to be a “proper pack” or whatever she said, we have to get married. The oldest in the pack have to get married and guide the rest of the pack, no matter who the alpha is.“

“No thanks.” You scrunch your nose up at him before walking away.

He grabs you before you can get far, “We have to do this. She’ll kill Scott if we don’t.”

“What?” You look up at him.

“Exactly. She didn’t come right out and say we have to get married, but I got this gist of it. This has to look real.”

“Is this some ploy to get me to fall in love with you?”

“Haha. You’re funny.”

“I don’t want to marry you.”

“Scott will die, no ifs ands or buts.”

“Will I get a nice proposal?”

“A fancy public one.”

You sigh, looking at him as you think. “Fine.” The two of you walk back downstairs, everyone looking at you strangely. “Don’t ask.” You sit on the couch and cross your arms.

The next morning Derek texted you, telling you to dress nice and he’d be there at 7. This is not how you thought your engagement would ever go.

You wore your favorite dress, at least you could be happy that you looked cute. When he came to the door you couldn’t help but laugh. “Derek Hale in a suit.”

He glares at you, “It has to look real…just…just come on.”

You smile, watching him walk ahead of you. You get in the car and he looks over at you.

“Not even the pack can know this is fake.”

“They’ll know.” You laugh.

“Not if you don’t tell them.”

“Derek, we hate each other. We’re always at each other’s throats. Now we’re magically in love and engaged?”

“We’ve seen the light. We’ve been in love with each other all along.” Derek raises an eyebrow.

You scoff, “I acted in high school. Drama club.”

“That makes sense.”

“Hey! Shut up and let me finish. I am a good actress, so if you’re in I’m in.” You cross your arms.

“We have to be physical, you know. PDA.”

“Okay, now you’re milking it.” You laugh.

“No, I mean you’re attractive, but I’m not milking it.”

“Oh, I’m attractive?”

“I didn’t meant to compliment you.” Derek shrugs.

You laugh and look out the window, “I never imagined getting married to look like this.”

“Well, me either but here we are.”

“So how is this going to play out?”

“We’ll go in, get some drinks, we’ll be so in love that we have to leave before the main course.”

“Put your game face on, Hale. I play a good woman in love.” You smirk as you step out of the car.

You both walk inside and he holds the door open for you.

You smile, looking over your shoulder at him. He’s staring at your ass. You can’t react really, he’s supposed to be your boyfriend. You try to give him a look and when he catches your eye he smirks.

“I have a reservation for two. It should be under Hale.” He tells the woman at the front. She types something in the computer and seats the two of you.

“They’re here.” Derek mouths at you.

“Is this why you picked this place?” You raise an eyebrow.

He nods, “If it was up to me I would’ve proposed at a McDonald’s.”

“Oh, lovely. Thanks.” You roll your eyes and he laughs. “What’s the cut?” You lean back in your chair.

“What?”

“The cut. Of the ring?” You thank the waitress when she brings your drinks.

“Are you serious?”

“Deadly.” You smirk.

“Princess, if you must know.”

You feel the gaze of the pack from across the room. They believe this. “Perfect.” You smile.

“You’re crazy.” He laughs.

“For wanting to know the cut of my own engagement ring?”

“You’ll know in less than ten minutes.”

“What can I say? I’m impatient.”

“Clearly.”

The two of you talk for a bit, learning things about each other you never could’ve guessed. He wasn’t that bad when you weren’t with the pack.

You tried not to laugh when you watched him drop to one knee. Everyone in the place turned to look at you.

“Y/N Y/L/N…I’ve known you for a very long time, and I’ve never been so in love. We’ve been through a lot together, you’ve stuck with me through thick and thin.”

You smile at him, trying to look like it’s out of adoration rather than teasing.

“You’re the woman of my dreams, and I’ve never met anyone like you. Will you make me the happiest man on the planet and marry me?”

You put your hand to your heart, “Oh, Derek…of course I will.” He slides the ring on your finger and you stand up, wrapping your arms around him.

“I love you so much.” You grin before he kisses you, catching you off guard. Everyone in the restaurant claps and cheers.

He pulls away and smirks at you. You admire the ring as he throws a twenty on the table. “Let’s go, baby.” He places his hand on the small of your back and leads you to the car.

“Heartfelt.” You raise an eyebrow as you slide into the passenger seat.

“Oh yeah? Thanks.” He starts the car.

“Nice ring too.” You grin.

“It’s just enough boujee for you.” He laughs.

“Hey!” You swat his arm. “I am not boujee.”

“Says you.”

“I hate you.” You roll your eyes and look out the window.

“I’m staying the night with you.” Derek says as he pulls out of the parking lot.

“No you aren’t.”

“We just got engaged. It makes sense that an engaged couple would…y'know.”

“Jesus Christ, Derek…I don’t need the explanation you can have the couch.”

“Thank you.”

“Not like I had a choice.” You murmur.

He did sleep on the couch, in fact he slept on the couch in just his underwear.

You crept down the stairs, yawning as you scroll through your phone.

“Good morning.” Derek smirks at you.

You practically jump out of your skin. “Jesus…I forgot you were here.”

“The huge engagement ring on your hand wasn’t an indicator?”

“Haha.” You flip him off as you give him a sarcastic look.

“Hey..is that..my shirt?” Derek stands up, crossing his arms. You never expected the first thing you saw in the morning would be Derek Hale in tight underwear.

“I mean..yeah? You left it here a couple weeks ago after a fight. I washed it and meant to give it back but it’s super comfortable…so…”

“You’re wearing my shirt…” He grins.

“And you’re standing in my living room in your underwear. So, put some clothes on and we’ll never talk about it again.”

“Y/N.”

“What, Derek?” You were getting agitated.

“You don’t have any pants on, so I think this is pretty fair.”

“I…do you ever shut up? Seriously?” You roll your eyes.

He laughs, the sound of your front door opening making you both turn your head.

“Woah.” Scott stood in the doorway, glancing between the two of you.

“I told you to get dressed.” You sigh before going upstairs to change. You come back down and you’re greeted by the entire pack.

“When did everyone get here?”

“We all came together.” Scott shrugs.

You sit on the couch, Derek’s eyes following you across the room.

“Oh my God, Y/N. That is a rock.” Lydia’s jaw dropped at the sight of your ring. She picks your hand up and admires it. “What aren’t you telling us?”

“Actually…” You glance over at Derek, nodding.

“We’re engaged.” Derek smiles at you.

“Oh, what the hell.” Stiles raises an eyebrow.

“That’s impossible. Are you pregnant?” Malia asks.

“No, I’m not pregnant.” You give her a look.

“Are you sure?” Scott raises an eyebrow, clearly recalling the sight he caught when he walked in.

“I am 100% not pregnant. Good lord.”

“We just..I don’t know..figured us out I guess.” Derek shrugs.

You exchange a look, smiling.

“Vast improvement.” Stiles shrugs. No one questioned it any further.

“Well, congratulations.” Lydia smiles.

“Thanks. We’re really happy.” Derek reaches over and takes your hand in his.

You’ve been moderately happily engaged for a couple months now, and the wedding day was here.

“Y/N, that dress looks gorgeous on you.” Lydia smiles. You were getting dressed upstairs in your room.

You look at yourself over your shoulder, “Thank you.” You smile.

“Hey, Y/N? Are the ties supposed to be this color?” You heard Derek come down the hallway.

Lydia jumped up and opened the door a crack. “You can’t see her.”

“And why not?” You could hear the grin on his face.

“She’s wearing her dress. I can relay the message.”

“Ask her if the ties are supposed to look navy.”

“Yes.” You answer before Lydia can pass it on. “And tell Stiles when I come out I better not see him in a flannel tux…or Converse.”

Both Lydia and Derek laugh. “Will do.” He says before taking off down the hall.

You walk down the aisle, Derek actually looks happy to be there.

“You look beautiful.” He smiles as he takes your hands.

“And you clean up nicely.” You tease and he chuckles.

Everyone was crying, this actually seemed like a real wedding. “You may now kiss the bride.”

Derek grins at you, kissing you with everything he had. He hadn’t kissed you since the night he proposed.

Everyone cheers, the two of you lighting up at the sight of everyone before you.

You two sit at the reception, watching as everyone dances. He knocks his knee into yours. “We’re legally married now, y'know.”

“What’re you hinting at?” You raise an eyebrow.

“Nothing…you’re just…my wife now.”

“Mmm?”

“Are you not in any kind of shock that you’re sitting here married to someone you just told last night that you hated?”

“Nope. I got over that awhile ago.”

“You’re a very mysterious person.”

“Thanks.” You laugh and he shakes his head.

“Dance with me.” You grin at him.

“I don’t dance.” He deadpans.

“You do with me. You’re my fake husband, deal with it.”

He stands as you pull him out of the chair. “This is going to get old very quickly.”

Hi!! I would like to start off saying I am an ardent admirer of your art (very very ardent, I love your art so much)!!! If I could humbly ask for any advice you could give to me to improve my own art, especially within the realm of character design/environmental layout design, i would be super grateful!! Even if not, that's cool, thank you for your time 👍🏽

hello, thank you for your support! 

as far as environment layout goes, I myself am a baby- I’ve only just started to get into it, and am learning rather fast how little I know about how to draw things that are literally all over the place in front of my eyes (mountains, i tell you, I’ve been looking at them for a year straight and I still ) plants too?! I know how to draw a tree theoretically and can draw it if I’m looking at it with no worries, but at soon as I try to pull one from my head, no dice. But all that comes with practice, definitely. 

I really haven’t explored enough myself, so my advice to you is the same advice as I’m trying to follow- draw a lot! plein air, pinterest, imagination, movie screenshots (that’s a good one. for environmental layouts and getting the gist of how to set out your place to direct the eyes to one area or whatever, tip top stuff.) I’m in the middle of deadlines but I tell you, as soon as I’m done school, that’ll be me 24/7. EDIT travel magazines!!! Natgeo! good shit 

My main issue is that I’m not very good at visualising large 3d spaces, coming from mostly drawing flat comic-esque or painterly art all my life. Check out the artworks and comics of Moebius and miyazaki’s Nausicaa- they are both excellent at creating phenomenal depth and space without a lot of rendering. It knocks me out. goals ya know 


character design- 

you know me, I’m all about clothes. 

I’m glad I got this ask actually, it reminds me of the things I really should be focusing on in my art, and those things are NOT clothes: 

diversity of body shapes and features 

working towards a knowledge of anatomy great enough to be able to draw people from most angles 

creating appeal in some way other than basic attractiveness. I really love to draw beautiful boys and girls, I really really do, but I realise that I have difficulty making a character that I’m attached to look strange, old or ugly. and that is a definite limitation. Consider putting a bunch of effort into observational drawing- and don’t hold back. I’ve always been afraid of having drawings in my sketchbook that aren’t classically appealing, and there’s really no fun in that. 

I’m working on putting my defined cheekbone #aesthetic aside and drawing some real people, maybe that’s an idea that would be helpful for you too :) 

if your characters are all beautiful, (or smooth, or small, or big, or whatever, or whatever) that’s delightful, but I’d say further along the line you’d be backing yourself into a tight corner if you only polish one tiny set of skills.

The argument “if you don’t understand something someone has written, just ask the person who wrote it to explain it to you” makes such a huge assumption about what theory looks like to someone who can’t grasp it from just a cursory observation.

Like, if you saw a jargon-laden post-game analysis about a sport you’d never played, I highly doubt your first thought is going to be, “Wow, I have no idea what any of this means, I should ask someone to explain it to me.”

No, the most common response to being confronted with something you have no grasp of, especially if you’re one of the many people alienated from academia, is more often than not going to be the impression that whatever is being talked about does not concern you.

Clarification is what you ask for when one or two things are kinda fuzzy but you get the general gist of something, not when something is dense and completely unapproachable.
