fan-art-for-fan-fiction

a really common mistake I see in the LoZ fandom is who is and isnt reborn each zelda game, and while u can do whatever in ur fan art or fan fiction or whatever, i just thought I’d spread the zelda facts B)

-Link is the only one who holds the triforce who is actually reborn. His spirit is specifically a servant to the goddess Hylia, no one else can take that place so he has to be reborn.

-Ganon(dorf) has been the same being. He never dies to be reborn, he’s only ever sealed away for a long time. in some games, its lightly suggested this is driving him insane. He eventually turns into a beast in all timelines (only a lil in the adult line tho) which is probably a result of power hungry corruption and, if u wanna speculate, insanity caused by such a long life span

-Zelda is a name passed on to every first born female of the hyrule family, along with her powers. She’s always an entirely different person but one who shares the same destiny as many of her ancestors. 

“What’s so bad about reposting?”

“It’s easy to make gifs, who cares.“ 

 Wrong. 

And here’s why: 

  • Presumably, you’re reposting because you either: 

a) don’t have access to the video that’s gif’d because you don’t know where it’s from or you don’t know how to download it. Which already proves that making gifs is difficult because of the time spent video hunting and downloading. (You’d be surprised how hard it is to download videos from certain websites.)

b) don’t have access to photoshop, because you’re not sure how to download it, or you do have it but don’t know how to work it. Which again, proves making gifs is difficult because it’s more than just right clicking then saving as (which is what reposting is - so if you catch yourself doing this, stop!) You have to learn how to use photoshop to actually make a gif, and to actually use photoshop you have to know how and where to download it. Some people even pay for it, and it’s extremely unfair to those that do because something they essentially paid for is getting stolen from them.

  • Gifs are not even just about being able to do the basic load files into stacks or import layers from frames, whichever method of gif making you prefer. Nope. It’s about coloring as well, which makes your gif unique and different from someone else’s. People spend time making their gifs look nice in addition to spending their time looking for the right video and whatnot. 

So have some respect for people that do their best to provide you with pretty gifs on your dashboard to reblog >:( 

(No, it does not count if you repost someone’s gif and “give credit”, especially if the source is “it’s not mine but I found it on Google”. Tumblr made a beautiful function called a REBLOG. Use it. It’s your best friend.) 

Next time you say, “everyone reposts” or “they’re just gifs”, keep in mind making gifs isn’t actually as easy as some people belittle it to be! Try making gifs for yourself and see how hard it is. Really, try. 

(And if you’re thinking, “oh making gifs is so easy! I’ve tried it!” then it literally costs you $0.00 to make your own gifs and gain notes through your own hard work. Seriously. Stop taking credit for someone else’s hard work.)

Stopping reposts can happen if you take a step to stop yourself from reposting and letting others know why it’s bad too. If no one tells you what you’re doing is wrong, how would you know what you’re doing isn’t right? One by one, we can all eventually stop reposting because it’s very disrespectful to artists (yes, gif makers are considered artists too). If you want notes, earn them yourself just like how every original content makers do. And even if you can’t make anything yourself, don’t be mean. Support people’s works. 

(This applies to everyone that makes original content, fan art, fan fiction, graphics, etc. The steps in between to make them are different, but reposts affect all of us the same. Please stop reposting and respect the artists.)

Romeo and Juliet AU

Romeo and Juliet was based on a real story adapted into a play by William Shakespeare. However, it’s not the story we’ve come to know through schooling and love of English and theatre.

Romeo and Juliet was based on a very real story. But it wasn’t a tragic love story between a young boy and girl but two young adult men: Romeo and Julien.

The story is true to the tale of feuding families but they also hid their love in fear of persecution for their same sex love affair in a very religious city. In their time period, they never stood a chance, even if their families did accept the fact that they were from the clan of their enemy.

They die together tragically but not from suicide. Romeo had to watch his beloved die in front of him, murdered by “men of faith” who call them sinners, by shoving a dagger through Julien’s chest. Shortly after, Romeo perished by being forced to ingest poison to make it look like the both committed suicide in an act of love. Romeo’s last thoughts were that he was happy he’d be with Julien soon and that he wished he could have given Julien the life they so wanted.

Hundreds of years later, Romeo is reborn as Harry. He lives a normal happy life until one day he comes face to face with his beloved, a man he had visions and dreamed about his entire life. And from the look on the beautiful face of the boy standing in front of him, it seems that he is thinking the exact same thing.

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ by Grzegorz Domaradzki aka Gabz

I FINALLY figured out how to make thumbnails!  XD  (shutupitwashardokay??)

Fan art of @thelastpilot ‘s fan fiction, “Rainy Days,” which was one of the first ML fics I ever read.  I’m definitely a bit late to the party since it was written a few months back, but I’m a new fan so it’s still new to me.  ;)  And at least I don’t have to tag it with a spoiler alert.  XD


I drew this while I was on vacation, so it was drawn in my sketchbook instead of digitally like I’m used to.

(Apologies again for the giant watermarks)


Edit: Someone asked for a link, here it is.

i did not know real fluff until i binge-read 82k words of @phenobarbitalfiction writing Will’s sexuality crisis through Hannibal’s perspective.

My heart is filled with sugar. Here’s some Hannibal sniffing Will’s hair like a sap.

This doodle is inspired by a scene from Bend Around the Wind by Scyllaya

Loki didn’t actually carry Stark through the jungle, but he was shirtless and as far as I understood, Tony’s shirt was half torn as well… Anyway, he helped the injured (read: almost gutted) Tony walk, but I was like “what if he had to carry him in the end?" 

So that’s why this came about… heh
