delicate art

anonymous asked:

Out of curiosity, how would the Galra react to human hand-drawn animation? Since they seem more oriented on older art styles like tapestries etc

They’d find it really interesting! While their decorations/cultural preference is for darker, richer colours, seeing something light, airy, and sometimes very straightforward like a lot of our hand-drawn animation would be refreshing for them. The Galra do have some animation, but it’s intensely stylized. If Keith were to watch Galran animation, he’d struggle to recognize some things. How the Galra draw something isn’t always a direct representation of reality: frequently, it’s simply a symbol or cultural coding for the creature/flower/etc. There are creatures with flower-like heads that Keith would go ???? at but would be instantly recognizable for someone like Kymin or Hyladra. 

Everyone please go read @inktae ‘s masterpiece: Lavender Hues.

I cried reading this piece when it was posted some time ago, and it’s not because of the plot (not all of it at least), but because Mari’s writing is so beautiful you can only stop whatever you’re doing and read, read and read, enjoying every single word, every description and metaphor, until you’re done and you need to read it again to drink in every detail.

I was desolate when I first read it because I knew I’d never reach the level of beauty she achieves with each work she creates, but god I after the first two paragraphs I didn’t even care, I was crying like a child all throughout the piece because it really is a sublimely crafted piece of art, delicate and intricate and just so well put together.

I never do this. I never ever do this, but this is one of my favourite pieces and you should cherish and love it and shower Mari with love because she’s an incredible writer, a great inspiration, and foremost, an amazing human being. If I’m here it’s because I was once inspired by her talent… so THANK YOU MARI FOR SHARING YOUR WORK WITH US.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
