can i get this as a gift

Naruhina video message event!

To congratulate our beloved OTP and our favorite series of 15 years, I had the cute idea to get everyone do a video message then a compilation just like the anime. Never thought many people would support it and so guess we’ll make it come true! THIS WILL BE OUR WEDDING GIFT TO THEM AND FOR OUR FINAL MISSION! 

The rules are as follows:

- Film a short video of yourself congratulating Naruhina or thanking the series overall. (You can include how Naruhina affected you, your favorite moments, your final thoughts on the series.) 

- Each video cannot be over 30 seconds. It doesn’t matter how short your message, even a thank you would be cute. 

- You can film the video in groups.

- Mention of other ships are welcome as long as you stick to the time limit. 

- You can record your video via Phone, computer, camera. As long as its able to transfer into PC and edit on Windows movie maker. 

- If you are mute, deaf or camera shy, you can hide your face or show your message on paper, any other ways to show your message is also welcome. 

- Send your videos to my email. deanheng101@gmail.com and link your Tumblr so i can credit you. 

- Deadline is 15th April, GMT + 8 hours. Video will be done in about a week after.

I used to be considered a "gifted" writer, winning contests and getting praise all throughout my school days... but I've lost it, completely. I have little to no desire to write, what I do write is forced and ugly and plain... It's writer's block that has been going on for years! I don't have a lack of ideas, it's literally just a forgotten skill. Do you have any advice on long-term writer's block? Or maybe an explanation?

Darling, don’t waste time worrying if you’re not “gifted” anymore because, I promise you, you still are.

Originally posted by shawnhollenbach

I know that I have that same tendency, too.  When it’s been a while since I’ve written and I can’t get back into it, my automatic thought is, “I lost it.  I had it and I lost it.  I might as well join Corporate America because my soul is dead.”

But there are a lot of explanations for why your writing isn’t coming out how you want!  I’ll list a few of them below…


Explanations for Writer’s Block

  • You’re out of practice.  I can tell a difference in my “skill” after a week without writing – so if it’s been years?  You’re probably very rusty.  If this is the reason you’re struggling, my advice is to push through and write crap.  Even if it disappoints you or you sit there thinking, “This is terrible this is terrible this is the worst,” just do it.  Just force yourself through it.  Eventually, I promise from experience, something halfway decent will come out.  And it’ll get better from there.
  • You’re lacking confidence.  Another big ailment of mine – if I haven’t written something I liked in a while, I can count myself out before I start.  So even if I push through and write, I either self-edit the whole time or I delete it when I’m done.  That creates the effect of Returning to Square One, which negates my work in the first place.  If this is the case for you, my advice is to look closely and find something to like about your writing.  Even in The Worst writing I’ve ever done (and trust me, 2013 me was a nightmare to read), I’ve found a way to compliment myself.  So read your stuff like you’re critiquing a five-year old.  You’re not gonna sit there and tell a kid, “Dude this sh*t sucks lol delete your account.”
  • You’re clinging to old ideas and old methods.  If you “used to” write for X fandom or you “used to” write before class every day, that’s not a good enough reason to keep doing it.  If you “used to” write without an outline or you “used to” feel like a damn wizard when you wrote, that doesn’t mean you’re able to do that now.  And that doesn’t mean your talent has decreased.  Writers are different in every new season – adjust for yourself.  Stop expecting yourself to work under ancient systems and expectations.
  • You feel uncomfortable with your author’s voice.  This can be a simple matter of feeling inadequate/nervous – or you could even be annoyed with your own voice/writing style.  This can worsen the more you read other classic books with “better” voices and compare yourself.  If this is the case, my usual technique is to try to “rewire” my voice – try a different POV style or tense.  This can change how your voice sounds, which can make it easier for you and your narration to play nice together.
  • You can’t find the right character.  This sounds like a small issue, but it makes a huge difference.  If you’re unable to find/create a relatable or likable character, you’ll feel uncomfortable no matter what story you write.  It’s like if a principal ballerina were to try to perform her signature piece in a smelly school mascot costume.  You know what to do, but you’re just not in the right outfit!  So it feels clumsy.  It makes it hard to see how you look or what you’re doing wrong.  It makes you feel like a bad ballerina!  So try taking the time to find a good character.  Fanfiction can be a good transitioning activity for you – pick your favorite book/movie/TV character and write in their POV until you feel comfortable again.
  • You’re mentally or emotionally unhealthy.  This sounds judgy, but trust me – 90% of my writer’s block crops up in times of poor mental health or emotional stress.  Just like you can’t play baseball with broken ankles, you can’t write if your heart or your brain aren’t up to snuff.  So assess yourself for undue stress, depression, anxiety (my big one), or mental exhaustion.  Beyond that, make sure your heart isn’t clogged – so to say, make sure you’re emotionally accessible for writing.  If you’re deep in grieving, dissociating, or facing any kind of emotional blockage, your writing is definitely going to suffer.  It might be best to take time to work on these issues – otherwise you’re trying to row a boat with holes in it.

These are some of the main ones I’ve encountered in my time – and they’re definitely not the only explanations.  If none of these ideas help you to get started again, be sure to message me!  I’d love to discuss it with you personally :)  I know how awful that limbo can feel and I definitely want to help if I can.

Thanks again, and happy writing (hopefully)! <3


If you need advice on general writing or fanfiction, you should maybe ask me!

give me yuuri dancing to reggaeton p l e a s e

((I don’t know much about this style, this is the result of wiki-ing and youtube searching, if anyone else has any ideas for this headcanon, please feel free to reply/let me know! ^^ ))

I can totally see Yuuri dancing this for Victor, either during another drunk banquet (probably with Chris and maybe Yurio and Phichit jumping in as backup dancers), or as some sort of surprise anniversary gift, and Victor is totally into it. 

…And then at home Yuuri gets Victor to dance something like this with him… 

anonymous asked:

Do you have any tips for putting out info and getting comfortable with your own characters? Like Galathan, I love him dearly, and you out out such beautiful work of him and Dorian. I have tons of OCs and I'm not sure how I should... Express them. Thanks a bunches! (You're so talented, I can only dream of becoming as gifted as you. Haha)

Hey anon, regarding to your question of how to present your OCs put - I’m not even sure myself tbh.

But it’s obvious when you create a character, not only you want them to look unique but also have an fun personality too. But don’t make them perfect either, you got to give them flaws and weakness to balance it out.

It’s good to put your OCs in situations were they interacts with other characters or a conflict, I find it it’s a good way to show who your characters are.

When I first made Galathan, I have no idea he would get an audience at all. But it was easier for him to be seen because he’s from an existing game followed by a huge fanbase. His story was already given to him and all l had to do was adding things to give him a personality.

Honestly though, just enjoy your OCs for who they are and write/draw them however you want. If they get attention from people that’s cool and if not, that’s cool too.

anonymous asked:

Happy birthday my friend! I'm too shy to go off anon even if we're mutuals, hah; also you're getting Voltron '84 for your bday, that's a pretty cool gift, probably lots of fun incoming

Thank you! I’m a shy bean myself, can relate

And like 80s Voltron is so bad and cringy I honestly don’t know if I should be happy abt this
but the episodes are staff picks so I’ll have to pull through ;;

anonymous asked:

Why are you trying to get people to buy you stuff?! Kinda weird.

Why? Tons of people have amazon wishlists on their blogs. Sometimes people like giving gifts to their mutuals - I’ve done similar things for mutuals in the past. It’s just something nice you can do for someone when you can only communicate long distance. And I’m not trying to get people to do anything lol. I’m just giving them the option if they want to. Anyway, good day xx

“When I was 6, my family had almost no money. My parents had both lost their jobs, and they had separated from one another. My mom was not yet getting any government assistance and we barely had cash for staple groceries. At that point, we were poor enough that my brother and I were probably not going to get much in the way of Christmas presents. And then, a mother of a boy in my first grade class somehow noticed our need and gave my mother $100 to buy gifts for us. She wasn’t a mom who had a lot of money herself, but it was a very generous gift and made a huge impact on us. Not only did we get some material delights that Christmas, but I’m still talking about this gesture more than three decades later. I’m still moved by the kindness of a woman whose name I can’t remember. And more than that, when I was working on founding Random Acts and thinking about what I wanted its mission to be, I couldn’t stop thinking about this small act and how it had stayed with me. I couldn’t shake the feeling that small acts of kindness can have a huge and lasting impact. So here I find myself: A well-to-do grownup with two little kids, having to be gently reminded to stop and notice those struggling around me.” -Misha Collins

NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES. MINE WEARS A MAID UNIFORM WHEN HE RUNS FOR KINDNESS.

I was just randomly clicking through episodes and stumbled upon this scene and it’s actually quite underappreciated and very sweet

this obviously happens shortly after their stupid argument over the lost bag of nuts (rest in peace brave soldier) and it’s clear that they’re still a bit tense after that. But Yuuri makes an attempt to break the ice 

“What would you like for a gift?” can just as easily be translated to: “I’m not annoyed anymore and would like to put this behind us.” It’s a sweet peace offering, with Yuuri showing interest and care in something that he presumes is important to Viktor.

However

Viktor misinterprets what Yuuri is trying to say and, while answering truthfully, also accidentally dismiss the hand Yuuri reached out for him. It’s a good display of them facing a cultural gap, since Yuuri might have planned to get Viktor a gift in advance and Viktor shoots that wish down. It’s not on purpose! But, speaking from experience, sometimes cultural gaps cause misunderstandings between couples that might lead to hurt feelings

 As is also evidently displayed here; Yuuri tries to mend what was hurt in the previous scene, in his own way, and Viktor misunderstands and Yuuri is left feeling rejected and possibly anxious that Viktor is still mad at him

BUT THAT LEADS US TO THE MOST CRUCIAL MOMENT IN THIS SCENE

VIKTOR CLEARLY NOTICES THAT YUURI GETS HURT and immediately tries to make Yuuri feel better in a way that is just as sweet as Yuuri’s own

it’s a line of dialogue that is just as simple as Yuuri’s when he asks what Viktor wants as a gift. “Do you want some hot wine, too?” is basically Viktor reaching out to Yuuri and showing care for his well being and offering to share something of his own with him. It’s simple, it’s sweet and easily leads into the hilarious line about Yuuri not handling alcohol well, bUT IT’S JUST SO CUTE AND THOUGHTFUL

THIS SCENE IS SO GREAT BECAUSE EVEN AFTER AN ARGUMENT THEY TRY TO FIX WHAT WAS HURT BY SHOWING EACH OTHER CARE AND COMPASSION AND IT’S SOOOOO PURE THEY CARE SO MUCH ABOUT EACH OTHER AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP

Oikawa Tooru for  @shizumar​ ♥ ♡

Merry Christmans Mar!!Hope you have a wonderful day!!I was so happy to be your secret santa!! Χρόνια Πολλά, καλά Χριστούγεννα και καλές γιορτές!! ♥ ♡ ♥ ♡

Y'all, I’m just so thankful because I honestly went into YOI expecting Viktor to be an asshole, diva, stuck-up superstar that’s hot shit and he knows it but… that’s not what I got at all??? Like, yeah, he’s a little bit of a diva. And yeah, he’s a superstar. But he’s also so PURE?? And earnest? He doesn’t know what he’s doing and he’s just going around fucking winging it half the time but he’s so happy with Yuuri and he wants to be a good coach and prove that he can do a good job and he gets so excited about little things and stuffs his face with katsudon and #ninjas and says “wow” in his cute little voice and I just… I will never be able to thank Kubo-sensei enough for the wonderful gift that is Viktor Nikiforov.

“This gift that you gave me for my birthday. You never got to tell me why you gave it to me or what it means… but I think I know. I think that you appreciate that there are extraordinary men and women and… extraordinary moments when history leaps forward on the backs of these individuals. That what can be imagined can be achieved… that you must dare to dream… but that there’s no substitute for perseverance and hard work… and teamwork… because no one gets there alone. And that, while we commemorate the greatness of these events and the individuals who achieve them, we cannot forget the sacrifice of those who make these achievements and leaps possible.”

“I just thought it was a pretty cool key chain.”

it’s prom season again and marinette’s ultimate plan is to get chat to come as her date and make adrien jealous…much to her disappointment, adrien isn’t present at the prom (gee i wonder why), but she ends up having a blast with chat anyway.

Here’s a commission I did recently. Mila and Yesky are the couple that from Poland and Taiwan. They’re getting married this year, so Yesky came to ask me if i can draw their love story, which is his surprise and wedding gift to Mila. They don’t want wedding photos, so Yesky hopes these illustrations can be another way to keep their memories. 

I’m being in a tough distance and cross culture relationship just like they did before, so I could totally feel how precious their love is. It’s really hard for cross culture couples especially in distance relationship to meet the happy ending, I feel happy to them, so i took the request.

The story is from the first time they met at the 2013 New Years Eve in Taipei to Yesky proposed to Mila in front of the mountain in North Pole. They experienced distance relationship two times, met each other’s families and finally got the chance to live together in these three years. 

Congrats Yesky and Mila!!!!! Wish your love last forever!!!!!

BTS reaction to them seeing you sleeping with a stuffed animal they got you

Jin:


Jin would be extremely happy. He got you a nice, fluffy, light pink bear. He wasn’t exactly sure if you would like it, so when he saw you cuddling it, he would have a smile 1000 miles wide. He took a picture or two before he couldn’t take it any more “I’m so glad you like it. I’ll be sure to get you more in the future, cutie.” He’d whisper to himself before tucking you in more.

Yoongi:


Yoongi would be extremely flustered by how much you liked his simple gift. He got you a cute Kumamon since you both loved the cute brown bear. He knew it would make you smile so he couldn’t resist getting it for you. He found you asleep on the couch waiting for him to get home from practice. “Aw… at least you can cuddle him while you’re waiting for me.”

Hobi:

He would be extremely happy and excited! He would get you a nice little cat plushy. He would come back from the store to find you asleep while watching the tv. He would squeak a bit, take a few pictures of how cute you were and plop down next to you. “Wakey wakey, baby girl! I see you like the kitty I got you! What if I said I got you another one?” Hobi would grin pulling out another stuffed animal just to spoil you.

Namjoon:

He would just have a wide smile looking at you sleeping with the Ryan he got you in his arms. You would always steal his so he got you a big Ryan bear to cuddle with when he couldn’t be around. You were laying in the middle of the floor, having fell asleep on whatever you were working on. Namjoon would scoop you up, lay you in bed and kiss your forehead. “You’re so precious. I just love you, babe” he’d lay the bear beside you and wait for you to wake up.

Jimin:

Jimin bought you so many stuffed animals you couldn’t ever pick which one to snuggle with. Jimin just loved to spoil you with anything you could ever ask for. You picked up a teddy bear, a tiger, and a little dolphin. He came in with a big smile. “Hey! Jagi!!” He’d say, as he burst into the room. Jimin realized you were asleep and noticed all the stuffed toys in your arms. “Aw…. you’re so cute!!!!” He smiled happily at you happily.

Taehyung:

Tae would also spoil you with so many gifts. Clothes, shoes, stuffed animals, flowers. You name it, he’ll get it for you. He came in to see you snuggling with a soft velvet looking horse. He would laugh and take as many pictures of you as he could before you woke up. “Ahhhhh!!! You’re so cute! Go back to bed so I can get more cute pictures!”

Jungkook:

Jungkook would just glance at you without realizing you had the black bunny he got you when you two started dating in your arms. He looked at you again, and ran his hands through your hair slowly. When he sees the bunny in your arms, he would smile so wide with a little blush. “You like that bunny a lot, don’t you, sweetie? That makes me really happy.”
