Jumped on the bandwagon and started ME:A today.
Surprisingly the controls work pretty well for my “two hands ten thumbs” issues, but I’m still crap with aiming and keep my ammo in check.

Unfortunately I have found no way to change the German dubbing and I hate how unnatural everything sounds. I hope origin will offer the English audio files like they did with DAI, because THIS is horrible!

edit: could probably solve the language issue. Found a switch in the origins and right now the system is updating so I think there is hope.

I bought a fat pack of marker pens cos there’s nothing better than hands soggy with rainbows of ink!!

Skyhold - Prison

Prison Structural Evaluation

Harder job, this. Structural fractures throughout. Major blocks shifted. It settled over an age or more, so I had the workers shore it up and call it stable. I don’t recommend rebuilding; if we change the weight distribution it might stress cracks we can’t see. I’ve seen failures like this before. In dams, with the pressure of a flood behind them. What caused that in a prison this size, I don’t want to know.

I’ve seen what can happen to an actor when he’s just working for the sake of working. All of a sudden it’s ten years later, your career’s happened, and you haven’t had any control. I still assume that, any day, I’m going to be exposed as a fraud. That, like I once heard Gene Hackman say, the acting police are going to burst in and take away my card. I’ve learned that when you make big life decisions, life says, “Fuck you. This is what you actually have in store.”

2 Years but my heart still hurts. I always wish that I could wake up one day and it was just a bad dream, but you still aren’t there.This is my day to feel sad, but don’t worry I’m still moving forward every single day. I’m writing, I’m reading, I’m dancing, I’m drawing, I’m working, I’m going to school, I’m trying to get better, I’m living; I’m doing it for you. I miss you, Monty.

Hey Guys, 

I made a mistake on the credit page of our Hidoku Shinaide Chapter and I want to correct it now. As you may or may not have noticed, we have a new credit page. I found smol naked Nemu on the cover of the 5th Hidoku Volume and I haaaad to use him ^^ But in the editing process somehow (still don’t know wtf happened), one name in the credits disappeared. The cleaner for the chapter was Yoru from Sentimiento Yaoi. But our own cleaner kaNd cleaned the colored doublepage.

I should mention, that the pages of the Be x Boy Magazines are super thin. You can see what’s on the next page. Crap, sorry. English -.- I don’t know how to explain it better. They’re like transparent…

It’s super super hard to clean those pages. Yoru did an amazing job,
and so did kaNd.

She worked on that double page for days, I’m still amazed about  how it turned out. 


It’s driving me nuts that I didn’t credit her, even if it happened by accident. 

That’s why I wanted to make this post. 

Some cleaners are artists and I literally fangirl over their work. 

I’m sorry kaNd! I love you and your work and I feel so blessed that you’re part of my team. Thank you so much for all the hard work you do!
That goes for my whole team. Love you guys so much! 

And thank you to every cleaner out there, you guys rock!!!

Thank you for reading!

BTS as Your Valentine❤️️

SEOKJIN:

You would be so spoiled by him omg. He’d buy you lots of roses and have a full day of events all planned out. Expect a 5-course dinner from Chef Jin himself! Plus, don’t forget about the Valentine’s edition of DAD JOKES. He just wants to make sure you know he’s the best you’ve ever had.

YOONGI:

He wouldn’t even acknowledge the fact that it’s Valentine’s Day, but he’d still put a lot of effort into making your day EXTRA special. He’d invite you to his studio while he works and the two of you would grab coffee afterwards on the way home. And when you least expect it, BOOM. A Yoongi backhug, equipped with neck kisses!

HOSEOK:

Imagine a Valentine’s night out with him! Holding hands and walking wherever your legs take you. He’d be such a gentleman, but at the same time, there’d be lots of flirty teasing from this one. Eventually, the two of you would end up in an unknown place because y’alls were too busy distracting each other. But you’d feel safe anywhere with Hoseok by your side!

NAMJOON:

He’d bring you to a very romantic setting– like the beach (at sunset of course)! Once you settle in, you’d have some deep-talk time, but also time when no words are needed. You best believe there’d be lots of kissing!!

JIMIN:

CUDDLES AT HOME WITH THE CUDDLE KING HIMSELF. There’d be moments when you just stare at him until he makes you giggle, which would make him laugh as well. And once Jimin gets the giggles, y’alls know he doesn’t stop lol. His eyesmile would come out and steal your heart for good!

TAEHYUNG:

He would ask you what you want to do and happily say yes to whatever it is. Even if you chose to do the most boring thing, Tae would find a way to make it fun and exciting. He’d keep you laughing and smiling throughout the entire day!

JUNGKOOK:

Prior to Valentine’s Day, he would be asking the other members for advice, and they’d tell him to do all these cheesy things like having a fancy dinner together or something. And he’d be like super stressed out about it, trying to make everything perfect. But in the end, he would opt to invite you to watch anime with him or take you bowling! #nochu will come thru~

Writing in A Bad Mood

While I’d like to write every day, some days are significantly more difficult. Whether it’s stress or something more traumatic, there undoubtedly will be days where you really feel like you can’t possibly write anything- let alone anything you’d want to read again later and work on. On those days, maybe you don’t want to write, and that’s okay. It’s best to remember that there are other ways to still actively work on your project while not actually writing. 

  • Like editing. Someone once told me that it’s easy to write in a good mood, it’s easy to edit in a bad mood. It’s true. When you’re upset, you’re more critical. You think everything is terrible - you might need to tone it down a little to edit effectively. Avoid big picture edits, look at small scenes and try to figure out how you can improve them. Are there better words you could be using? 
  • Or do research! So say, your story is set somewhere you haven’t really been to all that much. Time to look it up. Google search is your new best friend. You could find picture of the setting or clothes or whatever and make a mood board. The point is that you’re still actively thinking about your project in a way that your mood is not going to hold you back. You might even feel better in the process.
  • Plan. So if you like what you’ve already written (or you liked it when you were in better spirits) plan ahead. Start thinking about where the plot is going. Consider how every character plays a role. (Remember minor characters do not think of themselves as minor characters - that is always where I start, because my first drafts are riddled with characters I’ve forgotten about.) 
How to do the thing? Big Test Edition

Pretty much everyone has been in the position of realizing exactly how fucked they are for an exam that’s only a few days (or hours (or minutes)) away, so in honor of Finals Week I figured I’d make a post about how I deal with being in said position. DISCLAIMER: This is what works for me. I’m not guaranteeing that it’ll work for everyone. DISCLAIMER NO. 2: This is mostly relevant to concept-based exams, but a lot of it still holds for other types.

Generally we tend to realize this with at least a day or so left before the exam, and while it’s tempting to try to cram as much studying as possible into that time it’s often extremely counterproductive. I personally cannot absorb information when I feel panicked. I think that’s a fairly universal experience. However, “accepting your fate,” so to speak, isn’t a great idea either. You’re probably capable of learning something in the time between this realization and your exam, so in order to strike a balance:

  • Take a deep breath, get a glass of water, and shake out your hands and feet. Stretch. 
  • Go to your books (or other relevant materials idk) and calmly skim through, making a mental note of the areas or topics that need more work than others. Calmly.
  • If your teachers or professors have made practice exams available to you, get one out. Now, your intention shouldn’t be to get as good a “grade” on it as possible; this “exam” is simply a study tool. It may be slightly nerve-wracking to see problems or questions that you know you don’t understand/can’t answer, but remember that this actually works in your favor. You’re trying to figure out what to study, remember?
  • Once you’ve figured out your biggest weaknesses, rank them in order of importance. For math and sciences, focus on areas that form bases for other concepts before focusing on specifics.
  • Work through your list from most to least important using whatever materials are available to you, but don’t stress about going into detail. Don’t. Don’t do it.
  • Take a breather. You’ve done a lot of work and studying right up until the test won’t do you any good. Get a glass of water and a snack. Stretch. Pet a dog.
  • Go back and review what you learned. Don’t look at the materials; look at the topics and talk to yourself about them, like you’re giving a lecture. Writing this down can also help.
  • Take another breather. You’ve learned a lot and you’ll be okay.
  • Go kick butt

“Yeah but what about when I don’t have time to do any of this shit?” you may be saying right now. That happens a lot. Or, like, it happens to me a lot. Maybe not to you. I don’t know. Either way, you’ve got to do shit differently, and a lot of it has to do with recalibrating how you think about the situation.  The cold hard truth is this: if you don’t have time to do all the stuff up there^^^^ you won’t know everything on the exam. That’s okay. Make peace with it. This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try, but don’t stress over not being able to learn literally everything in whatever time you have left. Drink enough water, eat something healthy, and remind yourself that you are absolutely not alone. Also see below:

General tips for exam bullshit:

  • Don’t joke about failing. Don’t joke about how fucked you are. Even if it’s 100% in jest, it’s not difficult for the sentiment to lodge itself in your brain. You know the phrase “fake it til you make it”? Yeah, that’s real. It works both ways. Don’t do this.
  • Replace “I don’t know anything” with “I don’t know everything (but that’s okay)”
  • Replace “I should have studied more” with “I’ll study more next time”
  • If someone’s talking about how fucked they are, call them out in a funny way. Your friend is saying they’re going to get fucked sideways in the butt by this test? Tell them that they’re fucking brilliant and that they should make sure to bring some lube for when they inevitably fuck the test right back (and for the grader who’ll be mindfucked by how AMAZINGLY BRILLIANT they are). People will laugh, but the message will stick, even if only a little.
  • DO NOT study right up until the test. DON’T DO IT. DON’T. 
  • Eat well and drink a lot of water WELL BEFORE the test (so that you’re hydrated but you have time to pee before taking it)
  • If you’re trying to pull an all-nighter to study, don’t do it the day before. Ideally you shouldn’t be doing it at all, but if you’re going to be stubborn about it just make sure not to do it the night before the test. Also there’s this thing called the point of diminishing returns. Observe it. Obey it.
  • Group studying is cool, but always do at least some practice problems alone if this test is in a STEM subject. You won’t have your friends’ input on exam day.
  • Poop beforehand. Seriously, just do it.
  • Adopt a power pose in the testing room. It has to be subtle, obviously, but it’ll help a lot.
  • If you find yourself staring at the words on the page and not comprehending anything, make a small mark on the page and turn to a different question. For some reason this helps people get over the initial mental block.
  • Remember that this test is not everything. Sure, it’s important, but it doesn’t say anything about your worth as a person. It may not even say anything about your academic abilities. Doing poorly on a test doesn’t mean you’re stupid. It means you did poorly on a test. That’s. All.

Alright I’m going to go teach myself the material from the entire second half of the quarter now so I’ll end this here, but feel free to send me any questions or comments you have and I’ll do my best to get back to them asap. Y’all rock. You’ve got this.

Accidents Happen (reader x Bucky)

Hiya. Confession: So I took a long break from tumblr because it was taking over my life but I’m back now because Bucky. Obviously. I’ve mostly been writing fiction the past few years, but this is my VERY FIRST dipped toe into fiction of the “fan” variety. This story was running through my head ALL day at work yesterday so I had to get it out. I was brought back to writing from all the awesome (Y/N) x Bucky blogs I’ve been reading, devouring entire Master lists in fact. (Ahem, @squishybucky @writingruna and @imaginingbucky. Still making my way through @you-and-bucky ‘s list and I’m loving it!)


I’m still learning this new form of writing, so please be kind but helpful tips are welcome! I pretty much wrote it last night from top to bottom with very little editing, but mostly I’m posting now before I lose my nerve. :D This story is loosely based on my life experience when I fell hard for a guy, wishing I could’ve been as bold as the reader is. 

——————————————————————————

Accidents Happen

Summary: Reader is 26 years old training with the avengers. She is slightly accident prone with a sheltered background, resulting in aversion to swearing. No verbal filter and says most things without thinking. She gets creative with curse words. First meeting and developing feelings for Bucky. 

Warnings: none? Mostly Fluff with a little heat at the end. :) I can’t handle pretty much any smut without dying of embarrassment. :)

——————————————————————————-

“Nice try, Hawk, but you’re about to eat mat, mother trucker!”

You had no verbal filter. Everyone on the team knew that. After almost a year of training together, they were used to your bizarre outbursts and ridiculous exclamations. However, you grew up in a very religious, uptight household and despite distancing yourself from those beliefs years ago, old habits held strong. Such as your inability to curse like a normal person. Any response to excitement, pain, surprise, or fear resulted in a random phrase that usually began with the first syllable of the intended word.

“Kick his asteroid, Nat!”

The redhead rolled her eyes, but kept focus and had Clint on the mat in seconds.

You pumped your fists in the air with a triumphant yell, then approaching the mat in anticipation of your own sparring match. All training focus had dissolved, however, as the gym doors opened revealing Steve and a dark-haired stranger. Curiosity peaked as you joined the welcome crowd approaching the newcomer.  Shoulder-length hair covered his down-turned face, but the glint of a silver hand not covered by his left jacket sleeve explained all.

“It’s Bucky!!” you whispered too loudly.
