enjoyment of reading

Homestuck Tips for First Time Readers:

  • Act 3 is when it starts getting good during your first read
  • The pesterlogs are long, but they’re important
  • The Midnight Crew intermission is also important, but not enjoyable the first time you read it, especially if you have trouble following circular time travel plots.  It’s much funnier the second time around, I promise
  • The Exiles are not enjoyable the first time.  They grow on you, don’t worry (and they’re funnier during Read #2)
  • When you reach Act 5 and meet the trolls, you may become irrationally angry that you just got used to the 4 kids and now you have to meet and like 12 more characters?  Fuck this and fuck you Hussie I’m not reading this comic anymore these feelings are normal and expected
  • Take your time with the interactive games, they’re full of easter eggs that are plot relevant
  • Sometimes Hussie just fucks with you
  • Have fun and go at your own pace

the village chief

i recently bought jessica julius and maggie malone’s the art of moana, and it was such a beautiful and enjoyable read! i was inspired to draw moana again; this is how i imagine an older moana would look as the village chief of motunui.

i decided to marry parts of the designs of both motunui villagers (such as tattoos) and their voyaging ancestors (such as fresh vegetation) for moana’s village chief look, also making sure to use a lot of red, which is the color of royalty, and to throw in whale teeth into her necklace, which only royalty would be allowed to wear. the story of moana, after all, is about how moana found and defined her identity when she set out to fulfill her ancestors’ quest and how she connected herself and her people to their ancestry in doing so.

Ok because I’ve talked about buff Donald Duck and my displeasure with human portrayals of him making him look like a child, I’ll share this.

Things we know about comics Donald:

  • wears a sailor uniform, fought in WW2
  • from the 1940s-50s
  • physically strong, probably muscly
  • in his 20s and 30s in most stories
  • kind of a ladykiller, is considered physically attractive
  • light-haired
  • (also does not appear to have weird voice)

With this in mind, I propose this human version of Donald:

That’s what I love about reading: one tiny thing will interest you in a book, and that tiny thing will lead you to another book, and another bit there will lead you onto a third book. It’s geometrically progressive - all with no end in sight, and for no other reason than sheer enjoyment.

I wish to be a lot of things,

but above all,

I wish to be

well-read,

well-spoken,

well-traveled,

and well-loved.

Shoutout to the talented @gibslythe for inspiring me to draw one out of my many favorite scenes from the Voltron: Dirty Laundry au fic

i feel like this line has been used already but just let me feel original ok

thanks so much for the request anon!! here’s a messy comic, i hope that’s ok ;;; i love me some flirty koga and jealous inuyasha~ also i’m really glad you dig my art 👌🏽

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! – When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”

After a particularly intense drift and a confrontation: a scene inspired/from one of the amazingly good crossover stories by @fantasiawandering. A sketch I did more than a year ago, after months of “photoshop inactivity”, and for which I think it’s now the right moment to “see the light”.

Thanks to all the authors out there, from any fandom really, that freely share their talent, their time and their intelligence, offering new possibilities and different angles to beloved characters, nurturing other people’s imagination and creating new, beautifully complex fantasy universes in which everybody can get lost.

dating jae would include:

a/n: short drabble about my second ult bias jae from day6! i hope this isn’t too shockingly bad, id like to think after almost 6 years of writing fan fiction id be good but looks like its a no :) dt: @jaechicken !! 


- jae would be one of those boyfriends that would tease the crap out of you just because he could 

- like don’t get me wrong, the kid loves you but you’re too easy to tease and of course he can’t resist 

- pda! would be rare [unless he’s jealous, then you can bet he’s all over you]

- i think he’d really enjoy cuddling with a movie on in the background, you sat in his lap whilst his chin rests on your head. he’d be so content that way

- personal hype man??? jae is here. he’d probably hype your ass up just for eating some cereal knowing him 

- i can see him wanting you to wear his clothes, t-shirts, sweaters and such. he’d find it so so adorable to see it swamping you, laughing as you pout at him 

- jae just losing himself whilst talking to you and getting all embarrassed when he realises and asking you to never bring it up 

- i dont think he’d initiate skinship but low key loves it when you do 

- would want to teach you guitar, even if you protest 

- dates mostly including food and movies 

- telling you to “get it” for just breathing honestly, this child 

- texting you 24:7 just to update you on his day if he can’t see you

- he’s a shameless triple texter don’t fight me on this

- both of you annoying the fuck out of brian

- doing anything just to hear that beautiful laugh of his 

- jae telling you to square up for stealing his french fries during your first date 

- kisses are soft with him, he just wants to take it slow with you

- i can either see him worrying himself about confessing his love or he’d be really chill and drop it out of nowhere but either way deep down, he’s super nervous 

- but you smile and kiss him and you see his cheeks turn the loveliest shade of pink :))))))))))

- jae wanting to cook for you but burning it 

- memes

- he’d show you his top memes because he loves you

- prank wars seem very possible but wonpil would give it all away with that sunshine smile of his [we love him regardless]

- swearing to you that he can dance 

- jae: “can we have a sleepover?” 

 you : “jae we live together”

- would enjoy teaching you Korean, would be so proud when you started to recognise words and phrases [if you aren’t already fluent

- wearing his glasses 

- day trips !!! he’d wanna go somewhere cool, like the aquarium 

- sending each other stupid selfies whilst he’s away 

- he’d feel so helpless being away from you for long periods of time and even though he loved his job, he wishes he could see you more 

- both you saying stupid shit : “exhales in ifuckingloveyourstupidass” 

- sometimes you spend hours sat in silence on your phones, cuddled up but it’s okay because its relaxing and you both feel happy with each other close by

- snapshot wars : who can get the most blackmail on the other to post about on their birthday 

- sungjin loves having you around to supervise the children 

- hiding backstage during asc and surprising him 

- he’d walk out, smiling slightly from the fun show, only to see you standing a few metres away. he’d run towards you practically jumping into your arms. i think jae would just love having you to hold and you being there would of made him the happiest guy on earth

- to conclude: he’d always be there for you, i see him being the guy to go from friends to lovers because he’s a shy lil bug when it comes down to it :))
