charlie liking lucifer right off the bat when she sees him for the first time
because holy shit is that satan? you’re satan? woah that’s wild???
dean and sam are just biting their nails off in the background and trying to tell her not to approach him bc he’s gonna smite her ass five yards away but she keeps cutting through their sentences with questions like dude, where are your wings? and what’s Hell™ like?
but lucifer is too confused to be able to think, say or do anything because ???? wtf is happening rn?????
“anyway, this is cool and all, but i thought you’d look scarier than this…”
“oh, but you’ve seen nothing yet. i’m far taller and bigger than you’d imagine, and i’m perfectly capable of snapping that pretty neck of yours or turn you into dust in a whiff… or, i could imprison and martyrise you for the rest of your life until you completely break apart, flesh and bones… does that terrify you?”
for a moment, charlie looks like she’s about to shit her pants and lucifer thinks he’s finally done something good and she’ll freaking shut up…
but then she starts giggling like he just told her the most hilarious joke ever and –
“you’re so cute!!!”
then she hugs him
lucifer is like “?????”
sam and dean cover their eyes and wait for lucifer to become angry and potentially destroy her
he doesn’t?? surprisingly enough???
because he’s stunned by the hug?? it feels nice af and it’s been so long since he’s been held like this and – she acts like they’re friends?? are they friends????? she teaches him to play video games and she reads him the hobbit before going to bed and charlie makes him watch movies, and sometimes she hugs him and calls him her little cherub and lucifer keeps claiming he hates physical affection but once she cuddles him he melts in a second, and she keeps talking about shit he doesn’t understand and sometimes he’s just so goddamn confused bc what the ufck is a harry potter, and castlevania??? is that some arabic tree???? he doesn’t know but he grows fascinated by charlie through his frustration with her and satan finally has someone that loves him (and he loves her too but is too stubborn to say anything)

So this year I made it a priority to get my finances in order, and I wanted to share some ways that I save money. Mostly on things I have to buy for work, but some miscellaneous ones.
-Take public transit to outcalls or to your incall location. Or, save money on expensive uber rides by taking public transit until you get close to your destination, then call an uber. I know some people dont fuck with the subway but this saves me a ton of money. On an outcall the travel fee is 50 dollars, the subway is six, so that’s an extra 45 dollars I can pocket. I don’t do this for private houses, but in a condo or hotel the client will be none the wiser.
-Learn to do your own manicure and pedicure. Easy way to save 35-100 dollars a month. Plus less time wasted going to and from the nail salon. Ditto for basic hair trims, eyebrows etc.
-Costco has cheap condoms and lube, and doesn’t require you to order online and wait for them to ship.
-Take advantage of store loyalty cards, for everything from lingerie to drugstore products. I get about 30 dollars a month cashback at the drugstore.
-Bring snacks and drinks with you, rather then going to starbucks or 7-11 everyday. Even packaged foods at the grocery store usually work out to be cheaper.
-Investing in a cheap tripod for your iphone or camera provides a great way to continually update your pictures, and not have to spend hundreds on photoshoots. Ditto for inviting a friend over and taking turns. With some basic editing and a white background, you can get really nice shots.
-Invest in outwear and clothes that can transition into your real life, like basic black dresses or a nice coat.
-Take care of your lingerie (even if it was cheap) by handwashing. No reason to ruin it in the washer.
-If you have your own incall, buy white sheets and linens that way if they get stained you can bleach them rather then have to throw them out.
*that’s all for now, if I think of more I will add them to this post, feel free to chime in on any ways that you save money*
listen i do understand that there is some sort of a parallel to be drawn between Vader and Kylo Ren BUT please acknowledge that while Anakin is you early emo Sensitive Musician who wears striped tshirts and flannel shirts and deals with his Inner Pain by writing angsty music, Ben is that 2009 seventh grader who loves MCR, paints his nails with a sharpie and thinks Green Day are underground
what im trying to say is, know your emos, don’t confuse them, dont embarass yourself in the process
some tumblr artists will tell you that you have to Nail Anatomy Down To A Science in order to draw Anything™ but here is the honest truth:
you only really need a basic understanding of anatomy. you dont have to do bone studies and muscle studies and all that (assuming you arent drawing as realistically as possible). you just have to understand proportions and shapes!
once you understand how proportions work in the real world, youll be able to experiment with proportions in your drawings. and literally all youd have to do is draw A Guy Standing using proportions from a reference pic and go from there. that can apply to anything - man or creature - that you wanna draw
shapes add another layer to the process but its also simple. its all about making proportions and shapes work together to make interesting and appealing characters
so dont get too overwhelmed by all these bone studies or muscle studies and all that technical stuff if in the end youre not going to draw in a realistic style. learn and experiment with proportions and shapes and you are Golden
i've been sculpting miniatures since 2010 but I cant get strawberries right at all :( They always look like shit. I've tried youtube, japanese tutorials.. nothing is sticking.. Help/advice?
2010?? thats amazing!!! im sure you can create some awesome stuff now!! :D
its hard to address the issue when i dont know what you dislike about your strawberries, but i will do my best to describe my process and see if that helps!! i first use a white translucent clay to sculpt the shape of the strawberry on the tip of a needle. i then use a nail dotting tool that comes to a point (like a normal dotting tool, but tapered toward the end?? i guess???? you could file a smaller one down to achieve this shape if you dont have one) to make the seed indentations. you dont want them to be completely random, they do have a pattern to them.
then i bake, and color with a diluted pinky-orange alcohol ink toward the top to represent the sort of coloring found here
after that dries i do a few thin coats of a vibrant red alcohol ink. multiple thin coats give the strawberries that juicy glossy look!! i unfortunately havent found a good way to give the illusion of the tiny yellow seeds, but i find most miniatures read perfectly fine without them.
for the leaves, i paint yellow tissue paper various shades of green and cut out sets of leaves with manicure scissors. glue them on, coat them with a matte glaze, and coat the rest of the strawberry with a glossy glaze. that should get you a pretty good result!!
to me, the hardest part is getting the strawberry to keep its shape as im adding the seed indents. this is because i use premo which is a very soft clay. i suggest a firmer clay like fimo professional or even kato polyclay for projects like this, if you have the same problem as me.
I really hope you can make some strawberries youre proud of soon!! if youd like a video tutorial, im thinking about filming a few so let me know. :D
I did not know I was liking your art till now! You are amazing, keep it up! You don't have to, but I would like to see a namekian in your art style. Can be one of the canon namekians like Nail, Piccolo, King Piccolo, etc or a random one. If not, I still want to say, you're doing a great job! :)
Oh man, thank you so much! You’re really sweet. (▰˘◡˘▰) Your request also made me realize I need to draw these guys more often. :’D
how do u cope with getting your nails done? i dread it every time i go bc it's exhausting and i feel so tired after even though i just sit there for two hours ?
honestly i dont cope with it very well at all, i just go and get it done and suffer because im too attached to having my nails to stop! having short nails at this point is 100% sensory hell and so i almost kind of go to the salon and have it done out of dependancy
i also find it utterly exhausting and often come home and have to curl up on the sofa with my weighted blanket for a couple of hours before i feel able to do anything else :-( sorry pal
(i cant even take stims or a hot drink because your hands are occupied at all times, so i have no idea what to suggest)(i stim and curl up a lot when i come home)
bellamy: *sees clarke walking toward him on the beach* *starts mumbling* i can do this. ‘i dont need your help.’ thats good, okay she doesnt like being called wanheda, hmm 'wanheda the peace maker’ yeah thats good, stick to my mental script and ill be fine. yes this way i can continue to live with my self hatred
bellamy: CLARKE - I - *opens up and cries in front of clarke*
🔑 17. Which character is the easiest to draw/write?
my boy asel is always fun to draw (despite being the Worst to color) and i think i have his personality nailed down !
🎬 20. Do you ever plan to do anything (comic, animation, etc) with your characters? Or are you just happy to have them?
i REALLY want to write/draw a comic or book, which is what 99% of my dragon characters are for. keket is another thing i want to make a comic of but i dont have a solid idea what to do with it. other characters are fun to have even if i dont have anything planned for them (yet)
This might be a stupid question but what tools do you use? Do you ever use your hands? Is it ever frustrating when you're crafting to have human-sized hands making doll-sized things? (that's not meant to be rude sorry, I was just thinking about your blog the other day and realised how difficult this stuff would be) Also, do you use normal vision (sounds weird lol) or do you do it all under a microscope or something? Hope this is okay!
dont worry, its not a stupid question at all!! i use my hands, nail art tools, cake decorating tools, all sorts of blades and sandpapers/files, toothpicks… whatever works!! sometime you have to get kind of inventive to get a certain effect. and i wear glasses but thats about it. if i were working in a smaller scale i might use a magnifying glass, but it seems like that would get unwieldy.. and im kinda lazy…. lol
also making tiny things with human sized hands is the fun part!!!! if my hands were doll sized, i would just be making normal things haha
