did something new with my hair

1. I adored everything about him. Every freckle on his cheek and even the dimple on his chin. I loved the smell of his shampoo and the sound of his breath. I took countless photos of him because I didn’t ever want to forget the moments where he made me laugh so hard that my stomach hurt. Eventually he stopped calling to say “I love you” and shortly after I stopped smiling. He has a new girlfriend now and every so often I see them kissing in the hall. It hurts but all I can do now is pretend my heart doesn’t shatter every time I see his fucking face.
2. He messaged me one day and he just began to slowly fade into my life. His eyes were grey, I could of written beautiful poetry about them if only I felt something when they looked at me. He had dark hair and he made me laugh but not the same way the other boys did. I kept him around for a while, mostly because my family said he had a charming smile and a soft voice. What I felt wasn’t love, I just thought if we spent the whole time with his tongue down my throat that maybe I could forget that when he told me that I was his world I felt nothing in return.
3. He was a fucking forest fire destroying everything in his path. He wasn’t always that way though. I used to be the center of his world. He used to always stare at my freckles and laugh at all my jokes. It wasn’t until I stopped eating for days and made his world black and white. He then became a series of missed calls, unanswered texts and tears. He stopped using his lips to kiss me and began placing cigarettes in them instead. He still calls me sometimes to tell me he misses me but usually it’s only after a few bottles of cheap fucking beer.
—  The 3 boys I brought home to meet my mother
After the heartbreak, I promised to never be that girl again.
I fulfilled the cliche-
I cut my hair short.
Something to mark a new beginning.
I got a tattoo with no real significance.
Most things in life don’t make sense anyways.
I moved further away from my parents and it was more than a metaphor.
I’ve learned that life is harder without the people who love you and returned to sleep in the bed that held me far longer than you ever did.
I don’t miss you anymore.
You still act weird around me, sit in the corner of a room and pretend that I do not exist.
Some days it feels as if I don’t.
There is no one here to love me like I deserve to be loved.
My voice is still not loud enough to be heard over all the background noise.
My friends are fixated on superficial things.
A love that doesn’t last.
A party last weekend where they fooled themselves into thinking alcohol tastes better when you are hurting and fell asleep on the couch of a stranger.
This is a measurement of how much ache we fail to acknowledge.
How many things we kick underneath our doormats just to prove that there is a way to keep moving forward.
If there is a way to keep moving forward,
for me, it has never looked like this.

Hello everyone! I have a new hair for all of you today and I hope you all like it! :)

Once again, when she turns her head the braid will stretch a bit, depending on the angle. I did not make this hair hat compatible but if it’s something people really want I will consider going back and doing that!

It comes in EA’s 18 colors
It’s for females, teen-elders
It is NOT hat compatible!

Download [Onedrive] [Dropbox] [Mediafire]

Credit to EA for the meshes.
Made with Sims4 Studio.

TOU: Please do not reupload my mesh and claim it as your own. Please feel free to recolor, just don’t include the mesh. And if you want to tag me if you use it I would love to see your beautiful sims!

And if you have any issues please let me know!

Update (10/9/2016): Hello everyone! This hair now has a custom icon, is hat compatible, and I added a little hair by the ear because I always felt that it looked awkward haha. Please redownload!  

fun story: when i was like 10 years old we had some new shampoo but it never really worked for me, my hair didnt really look like it was clean or anything but i figured “i just gotta keep using it before it starts working” eventually my mom commented on it like ashley do you never wash your hair or something?? it looks awful and i said i did!! and showed her the shampoo turns out i had been washing my hair with my sisters shaving gel for two weeks

Just some deities with some feelings.  v-diggety really took the fire/galaxy hair thing and ran with it, so I did too, haha.  There was this weird negative space in the corner that’s bugging me like they’re sitting on something but I don’t want them to be sitting on something because I JUST LIKE DRAWING ISOLATED CHARACTERS so I did what any self-respecting artist would do and I filled it with Billy Joel lyrics.

Enjoy my weird gross characters who don’t know whether to cry or laugh.

Modern Patrochilles high school AUs tho

  • Achilles being that handsome, popular guy who’s on every sports team and can kind of be a moron sometimes
  • then he meets Patroclus, who is new to the school and there’s rumors about something bad that he did in his past 

  • but Achilles doesn’t care because omfg this guy is so cute??? like he wears adorable beanies and has these gorgeous big brown eyes and shaggy hair and Achilles is just like ?????? you’re so hot I want to cry????

  • so basically Achilles is completely smitten and makes it his mission to befriend Patroclus, even when nobody else does.

  • and then them becoming boy FRIEND S?/?? 

  • like Achilles would definitely serenade Patroclus at least once in front of everybody and Patroclus would be blushing so hard because oh my god you’re such a dork Achilles

  • Achilles would be so chill about giving patroclus kisses in the hallway, because he knows that nobody would dare be homophobic to their faces because Achilles would kill them if they laid a hand on him or his Patroclus 

  • Briseis moves to their school and Pat becomes her best friend because he knows how hard it is to come to a new place where you don’t know anybody

  • the three of them doing their homework together at Achilles’ dad’s house and pat and achilles making out instead and Briseis just rolls her eyes and tells them to get a room.

For just a little while, as she ran, she forget who she was, and where, and found herself remembering bright cold days at Winterfell, when she would race through Winterfell with her friend Jeyne Poole, with Arya running after them trying to keep up.

My first screenshot redraw! 
It looks really off but i noticed too late :c

anonymous asked:

So it turns out teenage Inquisitor is my new favorite thing. Can we get reactions to the teen Inquisitor stepping up and winning a victory for the Inquisition, whether it be on the battlefield, in diplomatic talks, or via subterfuge?

Cassandra: She’s so, so proud– and lets them know it. She all smiles and makes sure they know what a good job they did. She asks if they’d like to do something to celebrate, too.

Iron Bull: He grins, broadly, proudly, at them. “Nice going, Imekari!” He ruffles their hair and gives them a pat on the back, which may or may not almost knock them over, but it’s okay.

Blackwall: He offers a wide smile and pats their shoulder. “See? I knew you could do it.” he compliments. “We’re proud of you.”

Sera: She grins and gives them a little noogie on the head, and they laugh and push her away playfully. “Good one, yeah? Come on, let’s go do something fun!”

Varric: He writes it down for posterity. People will read his book and know that the kid could do it. He praises them and asks if they’d like to do something fun to celebrate.

Cole: “Hearts swelling, eyes tearing, they did it, I knew they could. They are all proud of you.” Cole mentions happily. “They’re on their way to being an adult, I couldn’t be prouder.

Vivienne: She beams at the teenager, utterly proud of them. “Well done, my dear,” she praises, “you’ve been working so hard and learning so much, and it has paid off. I’m so proud of you.”

Solas: He smiles kindly at them. “Ir solas, ma len. Ah, but you are hardly even a len still.” he praises. “I see you have learned much since we first met.”

Dorian: He grins and raises a glass of wine to them. “To the hero of the day! Good work. Let’s do something fun to celebrate. You’ve earned it, and deserve to relax.”

Josephine: She’s giddy and so proud that she hugs the teenager if they allow it. They’re alive and they did so well. “You couldn’t have done it any more perfectly, and I am so proud of you.”

Leliana: The spymaster grins and nods to them. “Well done. You should be proud– very few can do what you’re doing at your age. Now go, go have fun. You’ve earned it.”

Cullen: He sighs a breath of relief and nods his head to them. “Well done,” he praises, “see? You can do this.”

My previous Coraline au/crossover doodles seemed to get a good response, so I did something a little more in depth. 

ohh my gosh I’m like creating a new sort of muse the more I think about the Other Ludwig. So basically, he dresses more fashionable and styles his hair with a bit more flare, he tends to smile more often, he is more open, and he is essentially a seducer. Poor Feli.

101 Questions for Character Development

Recently there’s been a master post giving writers tips on how to write, and some of the links no long work. One of them was “101 Questions for Character Development,” and I thought this might be very important to someone who is writing a fan fiction or any work in which the character develops into a new version of themselves! I did some research on my own and found this list:

Character Development Questions #1 - The Basics
These are the first questions you need to answer about your character - the stuff you probably need to know to get started.

   Name?
   Age?
   Approximate height?
   Approximate weight?  
   Hair colour?
   Eye colour?
   Skin tone? (Especially important if it’s blue or something else unnatural).          
   Do they speak with an accent? (Bonus: does that accent mean something about them?)
   Where are they from?  
   Where are they now?

Character Development Questions #2 - Backstory
Developing a solid backstory for your characters is essential - even if you don’t put much or any of it in the narrative. The more you treat your character as though they are a real person, the more real they’ll become.

   Who are their parents? Biologically and socially. (Bonus: how was their relationship with them?)      
What is their earliest memory?
   What did they want to be when they grew up?
   What did/do their parents want them to be?
   Do they have siblings? Older or younger? Brothers or sisters?
   Do they act their age? Why?
   Up until now, what’s the most noteworthy thing they’ve done? To them? To the people around them? (Are they different things for different people?)
   What was their education like?

Character Development Questions #3 - Tastes
Your characters likes and dislikes - their tastes - is possibly the most overt part of ‘who they are’. People get to know other people’s tastes quickly and easily, and even an acquaintance can know that they always drink Pepsi over Coke when available, or other things like that.

   What’s your character’s favourite colour?
   Do they/would they choose to wear a scent?
   Do they care about what things look like?
   What’s their favourite ice cream flavour?
Are they a tea, or coffee drinker? Or soft drinks, or do they drink a lot of alcohol? What kind?      What kind of books do they read? What TV shows and movies do they watch?
   What kind of music do they like? Do they like music at all?  
   Are they simple or high-class?  What would they prefer?
   Are they self-indulgent or practical? In all cases?
   Do they have any anything they absolutely love or absolutely hate?  Are they aware of it?

Character Development Questions #4 - Morals, Beliefs, and Faith
A character’s moral code and beliefs can offer a lot of insights on their motives, and the likelihood of their taking a given course of action.  Note: In this case, 'moral’ should not be taken to be objectively good, but as a neutral term for a belief that affects codes of behavior.

Do they have an internal or an external moral code?  What is it? (Internal would be a something that they’ve come up with for themselves, external would be something they’ve had handed to them. Many religious people will have an external moral code, for example.    
To what extent are their actions dictated by this code?
Do they believe in a God or Gods/Goddesses/Higher being of some description?
Are they superstitious?.
Do they value faith/instinct more highly than reason?
Do they believe in an afterlife? If so, what’s it like?
Do they have any specific beliefs that manifest obviously?
Are the respectful of the beliefs of others? To what extent?
Have they ever had to stand up to criticism for being religious? Or not being religious
Would they be more likely to act for the good of the one, or the good of the many?

Character Development Questions #5 – Relationships
It would be difficult (not impossible, but difficult) to write a character who never interacted with anyone else. Modern thinking about writing style suggests that we should learn more about a character from the way other people react to them than by their actions alone. So, these questions about relationships will help to define the ways other people behave around your character.

   Do they make friends easily?
   Do they have a best friend?
   Can they get people to do what they want them to? If so, how?
   Do they have a lot of romantic relationships? Serious, or short term?
   Do they fall in and out of love easily?
   Do strangers and acquaintances actually like them when they meet
Do they have a network? (That is, a range of people they’re connected to without necessarily knowing)
   What is their relationship like with their family?
Are their friendships long-term or situational based?
   Do they like children? Do they want children of their own?

Character Development Questions #6 - Physical Appearance
Time to play dress up! I don’t know about you, but this is always one of my favourite parts.

How does this character dress? How would they choose to dress, if all options were open to them?  
Do they have any tattoos? What do they mean?
Do they alter their appearance in some way on a regular basis? (Make up, hair dye, that kind of thing)      
Is there something they’d choose to change about their appearance if they had the opportunity to?
Is there something about their appearance they’re particularly proud of/happy with?
Objectively, are they physically attractive? Fairly plain? Unattractive?  
   Do they have an accurate mental picture and opinion of their physical appearance?
   How much time do they spend thinking about their physical appearance?

Character Development Questions #7 - General Knowledge
How well acquainted is your character with the world around them?

   Can they navigate their own local area without getting lost? To what degree?
   Do they know who the top politician or monarch is where they live? What about elsewhere?
   Do they know if/where there are any major conflicts going on right now?
   Do they know the composition of water?
   Would they know how to eat a pomegranate?
   Are they good with the technology available to them? Average? Completely hopeless
   Could they paint a house? Without making a mess of it?
   Could they bake a cake? Would you eat it if they did?
   Do they know how to perform basic maintenance on the common mode of transportation?
   Do they know the price of a loaf of bread?

Character Development Questions #8 - Specific Knowledge
What about special skills? Stuff your character knows that other people are unlikely to?

   Do they have a specific qualification in a narrow area?  
Do people often comment on a particular skill or area of knowledge to this character? Behind their back?
   Are they a genius or just think they are in this area?
   Have they deliberately sought to gain knowledge in a specific area? If so, why?
   Would they rather have learned something else?
   Who do they use their skill for?
   Do they speak more than one language? More than two? Why?
   Does their cultural background effect what they would be expected to know?
   Do they actively seek new knowledge, or let it come to them naturally?
Do they like formal or practical education?

Character Development Questions #9 - 'What if…’ Questions
These questions are designed to give you a different perspective on why certain things are important about your character - or why they’re not.

   What if they’d been born with a different biological sex?
   What if they’d have more or less siblings?
   What if a key formative event in their past had gone differently?
   What if they lost a limb? (Would which limb be important?)  
   What if someone close to them died unexpectedly?
   What if they’d been born 50 years earlier? 100 years? 1000?
What if they’d done something completely different on the morning when the story starts?
   What if they found enough money to make them wealthy for the rest of their life in a bag?
   What if they were stranded and deserted?
   What if they were betrayed by someone they trusted?

Character Development Questions #10 - Miscellaneous
These are just questions that any real person would likely be able to answer, but a ficitonal character often can’t.

   What did they have for breakfast this morning?
   What ridiculous belief/s did they have as a child?
   Do they like marshmallows?
   Do they sleep on their side, front, or back?
   Do they work better with sound or silence?
   Do they have a strange obsession with something minor?
   Do they like art?
   How fast can they run?
   Do they prefer to sit on the floor or on a chair?
   What do they want, right now?

Question 101 - Why Should The Audience Care About Your Character?

::Download::

I’ve been meaning to convert this for a while and I did do it a while ago, but my game exploded in some sort of evil monochrome turban doomfire or something….so I was put off.

I tried again today and actually read some instructions! This was a good idea.

Credits got to Modish Kitten/Indie Milk for creating the de-haired version of the EA mesh as I used her version to create this :)

Male teen to elder in the hat section. Colours shown above!

Known Issues:

*Conflicts with Kijiko’s older eyelash meshes when placed (they just look a bit weird) but works fine with the new ones.
*Huge ears will clip when the turban is in place. Regular ears should be fine.
*Works best with very very short hair or no hair when worn as hairs are only made to partially disappear under hats.

Did I miss something while I was away? Why the sudden interest in Riza with glasses? Not that there’s anything wrong with that. My goddess is beautiful in anything. 

Some questions I’ve had as a new cat owner:

  1. Why do you put EVERYTHING in your mouth?
  2. You’re excited to get new food and then you don’t eat the food????
  3. You cry to get on the bed, I put you on the bed, you get off the bed. Why.
  4. I bought the litter trapping mat so why isn’t the litter trapping?
  5. HOW CAN SOMETHING SO SMALL MAKE STUFF THAT SMELLS SO BAD?
  6. How did I get cat fur on my closet, plastic protected jacket?
  7. Is there a way to disable my keyboard on occasion so you don’t delete everything I just wrote?
  8. How come the only time you want to play with my hair is at 3am while I’m asleep?

And finally, how exactly can I show this little asshole I love him?
