dunno what else to tag really

“Could you please accept this daffodil?”

I drew it with RikaMC in mind, after a lovely yet melancholic dream I had with her…

So, I said last night that I really wanted to draw silly stuff of characters I’ve seen, but never watched or played their games. Yeah, it was Layton. I never played his games before, though I remember watching a movie or something several years ago. So I know him from that and my friend, Doodlechill, used to talk about him quite a lot.

Since the 2nd image is inspired by some of SquigglyDigg’s recent text posts, I’m holding her partially responsible for this. The pozzls broke me.

okay don’t get me wrong I definitely know what it is to feel manipulative for expressing your feelings but does anyone else feel really Guilty and like the Worst when sharing trauma with other people who’ve endured trauma because they’ve Definitely been through worse than you have

Long Ass Post Regarding The Bastille Fandom and how it's really Not As Great as it's made out to be

okay

so ive seen a Lot of posts lately praising the bastille fandom for being so “nice and sweet and chill and tolerant” etc etc.
and they bother me a lot.

I have nothing against the people making these posts. they’re happy with the corner of the group that they associate with, and that’s fine.

what I do have a problem with is the posts themselves.

they make out like this fandom is so nice and peachy and perfect when if you look even a tiny little bit further away from your own friend group within it, if you scrape a tiny bit under the surface, it’s obvious this is certainly not the case, and nobody acknowledges this.
no fandom is perfect, especially not this one.

we have our fair share of sketchy disgusting shit going on.
it may not be to the level of certain others but it is there and it’s bad, and the mentality of glossing over that completely is worrying me.

I have a few points I’m gonna go over, mostly relating to this fandoms treatment of Dan, and their treatment of each other.

•1 Treatment of Dan

this is probably mostly in reference to the twitter group of the fandom but it’s bad on tumblr too hoo boy.

to put it bluntly

y'all are fucking THIRSTY
and it’s disgusting.
because Dan doesn’t have a partner that we know of publicly everyone seems to take that as him being free range and make some pretty Ugly and Disgusting comments towards him- and even worse y'all do it on twitter too, on his tweets, which he can see?
the way you talk about him really rubs me up the wrong way.

he’s a human being for god’s sake and i don’t wanna sound like your mum but ACT LIKE YOUD WANT TO BE TREATED YOURSELF.

he is not free for you to treat like you do- and a good mirror for my point of the fact he doesn’t have a partner we know of is: you don’t make those kinds of advances toward woody, do you? y'all know he’s married and you respect that, which is great. but you can’t show the same courtesy towards Dan? (and don’t try to say that woody isn’t as attractive as Dan that has nothing to do with this.).

Even worse is your harassment of anyone involved with Dan’s life like his friends especially his female friends -
the AMOUNT OF TIMES i have SEEN speculation about one of his friends or a crew member or anything being his girlfriend- and then you go and harass the poor girls?? what the fuck??? it shouldn’t matter to you if he has a partner and if he does you DONT HARASS THEM LIKE THIS.
i find it really hypocritical especially after the whole glory thing.

•1a Treatment of the boys on twitter

I’ve said something about this before but the twitter fandom is SO bad. I’m not very involved with it so i won’t make claims but they’re some of the worst i think mainly because due to the nature of twitter they have direct contact with the band.
anyway, twitter fandom is awful, not going further bc y'all know

•2 Treatment of others within the fandom

oh boy!
y'all are not all nice
as someone who floated around Heaps before i settled within the space I had within the fandom when I was a somewhat active participant in it, I can tell you that a Good Percentage of you in the tumblr section of the fandom are demons.
I’ve seen people bully and harass others, send anon hate, more and more and more and i think maybe it’s gotten worse since the second album?
the main problem is I think you’re all too overprotective of the band as a whole.

•2a Treatment of the creative side of the fandom

this place is the WORST when it comes to art theft of various incarnations Holy SHIT
you steal and repost other people’s edits, their art, their gifs, with no credit and that is Bad. You know it’s bad but do you stop? no. do you check sources? no.
you follow and reblog from accounts that repost gifs and you dont give a shit- even when the original watermarks are Right There

And let’s get back into how y'all treat Greg shall we?

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it as many times as possible-
STOP STEALING HIS PHOTOS.
how have you not learned? why do i still see leaked photos going around? why do you not check the source before you reblog? why do i, to this day, see photos from the photobook online when you’ve been specifically told not to post them?

it’s ugly and disgusting how you treat creators in this place, especially Greg.


• in conclusion

there’s more to this but this is long enough already.
what bothers me the most is how nobody seems to see this? how you praise each other for being so Great and Cool?
there’s some great circles of people in here, i agree, a lot of you are really great but there’s still the other side to it there.
no fandom is purely nontoxic!! you know that!!
it’s worse here than you think it is and that’s what i want you to take away if you got through this long ass terrible post.

sorry for being the one to crash your party but it’s the hard truth and I wish more people were aware of it because this ignorance worries me.

(thanks to joyce for talking with me and helping me think out this post a bit)

After months of scrambling to get these monstrosities written… they’re finally done!

So here are previews of my two pieces for the @aphelionzine

I’ve written one klance piece (tut tut looks like rain) and one general piece (just like that bear grylls guy), both clocking in at around 10k words.

The zine is massive with about 70 authors and over 90 fics in there. It’ll be split into separate books by ship, so you can order whichever ones you want! We’ve got all the big ships, plus some rarepairs and general goodness, and they’re all so so good ya’ll.

Be sure to go check it out!! Orders open on August 21st!

Have a bunch of random doodles I’ve done in the past while. Which has mostly been consisting of Danganronpa stuff mainly relating to @gngm-kmkm’s AUs, my own AUs (even though only one is featured here), @drawkill (even though only one is featured here too), and the occasional self art or OC doodle. I dunno.
Fun fact: I really enjoy drawing Eldritch Horrors.

you know what else is fucked about tumblr?

The search option seems to be screwed up. Basically, if you search by popularity, you can see everything but obviously it only has the most popular stuff first

but if you search most recent, it only shows a small number of posts

I dunno if this applies to everything but it happens when I search my tag and ‘Doctor Whooves’. It’ll only show recent posts up to a point but the rest is just GONE.

Tumblr seems to be really against letting lesser known people have a chance :/

(( so Easter passed and then I lost interest in doing an Easter thing

so have this instead. I know the Demon Days parody’s been done a lot before but I did it anyway. I didn’t really put much effort to stick to the art style either cause I kinda wanted to keep most of the elements of my own? But yeah. Was pretty fun ))

replied to your post

“If you don’t mind me asking, how do you make your tags on tumblr?”

I think they were probably asking how you personally tag things. Not HOW you do it, but more… what’s your system. Like do you have series tags, character tags, are their more specific art tags you use (i.e sketches, studies, digital art, paintings etc) Basically what tags you actually use for your posts, and how you have everything organized. IDK for sure though. :P

Ohhhhh! I didn’t think about that, oops. I don’t really have a system. I tag:
My art as “my art
Harry Potter fanart as “harry potter” and “hp
I tag each character with their name (I guess there might happen “Ronald Weasley” and “Ron Weasley” or stuff like that because.. dunno, it happens xD)
If I draw fanart of something else than HP then I tag it as that different thing e.g. “your name”, “unlucky mansion”, “howl’s moving castle” etc.
The drawing of my ocs are tagged as “original character(s)” <–yes, I might add that “s” by mistake u_u; and all the info about them (+drawings) is under “oc” tag
I try to tag my tutorials as “tutorials” but check my faq too, there are direct links to my tutorials (thematically ordered) and it’s easier to find what you’re looking for.
All my asks are tagged as “Q&A
My stupid comments and personal things are tagged as “jabbernaty”
Yeah, that’s it. I have a link to all my drawings in my bio and there are many useful links in my FAQ. You can always go to my archive and filter everything by the post type (choose photo) and you’ll see most of my drawings. The rest’s in the asks tagged as “my art”
If you want to see all my drawings in a more user friendly way(?) go to my deviantart: natello.deviantart.com and browse.

Some ep 2 analysis/guessing

Because really these days it is pretty much all wild guesswork.

So, I had an ask I answered yesterday about the close up of Carol used in the s8 trailer. This one:

And I spoke about how the scene is slow-mo, with blurred edges. (there’s likely a technical filmmaking term for it, but I don’t know what it is)

Now we have had the first 3 mins of 8x02 released, we can see they use this technique at the start and we get close ups of the main people in the 4 groups attacking outposts (I don’t know why the info and tracking bar dissapears on some videos and not others. Does my head in!)

(SO PHOTO HEAVY!)

anonymous asked:

I agree with everything else you said, but why was Sam trusting Amy a bad thing? I personally thought she was good, and her reason for killing was justified (nothing less than what Sam and Dean have done.) I didn't like when Dean killed her.

I wouldn’t exactly call it bad - just another example of Sam placing his trust in someone that didn’t really deserve it because he chose to ignore the facts.

No matter her reasons for doing what she did - she killed people. If you kill someone, you’re going to jail, regardless of how noble or good your reason might have been. In the world of Supernatural and monsters, that means a hunter is going to take you out.

Sam trusted her because she saved him when he was young - fair enough. But the thing is, she then broke that trust and there’s no telling that she wouldn’t do it again. But when Sam can relate to someone or project his own feelings onto them (as he did with Amy), he’s willfully ignorant of anything that might contradict his opinion.

Dean treated her and her son like any other monster and that’s why he let the kid go - because the kid hadn’t done anything.

When Dean trusts a monster he’s also willing to change that opinion and admit he was wrong. He didn’t believe that Benny was hurting people in 8x09 but he still showed up with a machete when he went to talk to him - because maybe he was wrong about Benny after all.

When Sam trusts a monster (or when he doesn’t) he’s made up his mind and he’s unlikely to change it. It takes Ruby-levels of betrayal to convince him.

Looking for more FR blogs to follow!

MY DASH, it is dead, and my crop of beautiful dragons to compliment lay barren. I’d really like to follow some fresh blogs, especially if you’ve got lore! Beautiful, beautiful lore. I’m finally kicking my butt back into writing gear, and seeing other people doing the same thing helps a load.

So, yeah. I’d appreciate it a ton, truly. I’d prefer close to 100% FR (I definitely don’t mind some discourse), and as close to as little drama as possible, please (even if you just tag it, that’d be great).

Thank.

Edit: Oh god, I almost forgot. I follow from teamskulladminavalon. That me main.
