I’m starting a new, digital collectable card series, themed “Autistic Action Heroes”, where I will introduce a hero and name the displayed in-story traits that generally fit them on the autism spectrum.
The first card is Newt Scamander from ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.
Newt shows that he is autistic by:
* Avoiding eye contact * Having difficulty understanding social cues * Being too blunt/honest * Running away from social events * Feeling really uncomfortable with new people * Having difficulty relating to other people * Feeling really uncomfortable in new environments * Engaging in a passionately focused, all-consuming, special interest * Having great difficulty expressing emotions * Being openly accepting of people of all characteristics and walks of life
Feel free to add your own comments and observations.
Lo is known, I think, primarily for her
Kylux/Reader work, so I’ve included one of those, here—but she has great work
outside of that, too. Her work gets straight to the fucking (hohoho) point and
is just excellent smutty fun.
Whenever I Want: This is a Kylo Ren/Hux/Reader threesome—and it’s one of those
that, despite me not being into Hux, like, at all, I find myself still thinking
about. I think that alone is a testament
to its hotness—but it also has some good, nasty shit like cum-sharing and
Kylo Gets Off: The title is self-explanatory. We all love Kylo Ren jerking off.
But getting nearly 1000 words of it is such a blessing. He jerks off to the
thought of fucking Hux and Reader at the same time. Usually I don’t like
sharing someone’s fantasy spotlight, but I love this.
Punishment:I’ve recc’d this before on, like, two other lists, but I won’t stop
reccing it, because I love it so much. This was, I think, one of the first
sub!Kylo fics I read and loved. I still think about the line, “It’s so good,” he answered. “So warm and
fucking wet…” Like, kill me please.
If you’re looking for weird stuff, sad stuff,
or bloody stuff, Jinx is your girl. Not only does she have unique takes on
certain AUs—her writing is fantastic. Her descriptive language is dark and
poetic and beautiful.
A Full Confession: Okay, this seems self-aggrandizing, but hear me out. Almost
all of the ideas in this fic, and a ton of the gorgeous/tongue-in-cheek imagery
come from her. It’s easily some of her best writing, and you’d be doing
yourself a disservice not to check it out for that reason.
Exposed:I really love vampires. I really love Kylo Ren. So why not both? This
is the answer to that question. Good imagery, hot sex. Is there any more we can
ask for from a Vampire!Kylo fic?
The Angst Files, Chapter 3:All of the chapters in this collection are great,
but this one is a favorite. Not only for the idea of Kylo Ren getting hard from
his own tears, but the sex is visceral, too. A Sad Boy Sex Hall of Famer, for
Maybe even more than she loves writing Kylo
Ren, Beth loves writing Ben Solo. Her Ben Solo work is fantastic, and I’ve
included one of my faves. Her smut is raunchy and her dirty talk is nasty as
fuck. She pulls no punches.
Frozen NSFW: Beth will probably kill me for putting this here, but oh well, I’ll
face death bravely. Frozen NSFW is a fantastic collection of dubcon/noncon scenes
as Reader navigates her life as Kylo Ren’s new sex slave. And Kylo is just… an
asshole. A hot, sexy, asshole.
Solidarity: I’ve recc’d this before, too, but, look. I said this was the
greatest hits, goddammit. The sequel to another piece she so thoughtfully wrote
for me, you’ll find doggy-style dubcon inside. I frequently think about the
line, “Fuck this is the perfect little
cunt. I think I need this to greet me at the end of every day.” Christ.
A Hasty Landing: Just one of many great Ben Solo pieces, this is one of my
faves because of the intimacy and heat captured. I love the way Ben is written—snarky
and naughty and fun.
It was hard narrowing down the list of Fae’s
fantastic works to just three. There’s so much by her that I truly love. She’s
incredible at laying down themes in even the shortest one-shots, her
characterization is always engaging, and her imagery is unique and evocative.
On the Desk: I’ll be honest. I’ve probably gotten off to this thing like five
or six times. Professor AUs are hot, but this is just beyond everything I could
want from one. Professor Ren is dirty as hell.
Okay, Fine: No smut in this—but it’s one of my favorites. A twist on the
sweetness of a Coffee Shop AU, this fic instead features an antagonistic relationship between Kylo (in
his triplet form) and Reader. Enemies to Lovers, perhaps? Great dialogue, great
characterization, great narrative. It’s good-feelsiest fic around.
Don’t Tell Kylo: In this fic, you’re double-teamed by Organa Solo triplets Ben
and Matt. This fic is a perfect hallmark of Fae’s style—it’s hot with a
consistent thematic foundation and strong emotions.
Because Kat is known most widely for Love
is a Four Letter Word, I wanted to take this time to point out a few of their
other excellent works. Kat’s narrative style is so immediate and engaging, and
their language has the ability to drag tears of out of me, which is, like,
All Tied Up:This work is heavy noncon. Reader is kidnapped by the twisted
triplets and horrible things happen. You should absolutely not read this if it
isn’t your thing, but I could not fail to recommend it because if it is your thing, it’s fucking hot as hell,
and you’ll love it.
On Display: Reader is fucked against a window by Kylo Ren, an officer gets off
to the show. Exhibitionism/voyeurism are one of my big kinks, and this piece
just… hits all the right spots. One
of my faves.
Infraction: In relative terms of the
Kylo Ren fandom, this piece is older. But it’s still one of the hottest in my
memory. It has one of my favorite lines in fanfiction ever: “Yes, you would. You’d never leave, the only
thing you’d ever have to do is get fucked.” *SWEATS*
I’m going to imagine Tora will be shocked
I even included her, but she hardly gives herself enough credit. She’s been the
only person who’s managed to get me to enjoy Hux outside of a Kylo/Hux/Reader
context. Her sense of humor and sass come through brilliantly in her writing.
Valentine’s Day:I have to be honest. I really enjoy these Hux drabbles. As
mentioned, Hux isn’t my guy. But the banter and snark here makes me think maybe
he could be my guy.
Untitled: Another Hux/Reader drabble, which I won’t title as “this is dumb”
because it isn’t. There’s great sexual tension captured between Reader and Hux,
and the unexpected cigarette burn is so salacious.
De-Stressing: This piece is Kylo/Reader—and there’s daddy kink. Look, y’all know I don’t typically go for daddy kink,
but this one is enjoyable. If it’s your thing, this is right up your alley.
Current Favorite Tools Available in the Clip Database
I’ve had people ask what tools I use in Clip Studio Paint, which is hard for me to answer because I use a lot of different brushes. (If you want to know what’s used on a specific image, please give me the post’s ID number and I’ll find it on my blog and tell you!)
Here are some of my current favorite tools and brushes. I will give you the name that they are listed under so that you can find them in the clip database as well. These are listed in no particular order, because they’re all great!
“Tマーカー風ブラシセット” This is a collection of fantastic tools to create work that looks like it’s a traditional marker piece.
The collection contains several different tools including brushes with chisel or brush tips, blenders, and a texture you can overlay on your image to achieve the grain effect you see in traditional, scanned image. The texture is even pre-set to have the correct blending type and opacity!
For extra fun, I suggest using colour swatches from your favorite art markers in conjunction with these tools, for even more authenticity.
Overall this set is AMAZING and I love just playing with it.
“カサGペン” I’ve been using these pen tools a lot lately for sketching and sketch style ‘inks’. I’m not sure if they’re intended to mimic any specific type of pen, but they’re fun to use and the line quality they produce is really nice. “エッジ鉛筆“ in particular is one of my current favorites!
“水彩マーカー●▲■とテクスチャーセット“ Created by the same person who made the fantastic marker brush set, they’ve also created an amazing watercolour set! Like the marker set, it comes with several tools with different looks and effects and overlays you can put over your image (I use the ‘pigment pooling’ texture from this set a lot). There are also blenders in this as well.
My favorite feature of this set and what makes it rank higher than other, similar watercolour sets is the colour blending effect. These brushes can use a single colour, or it can use both your main and sub colour, showing one colour when you press lightly and another when you put more pressure. This allows for some great depth of colour and more natural flow to the blending. Fantastic!
There’s more, but these are the things I’ve been using the most lately. I highly recommend checking out the stuff in the Clip database, you might find something you love.
soooooo thought id share some stuff i did this semester that i did in the same style as that deh poster! this was the first project that i did the whole watercolor and cut-outs thing for, its a fantastic mr. fox dvd set, complete with wrap-around cover, dvd front-thing, and booklet-insert! (shout-out to my professor for literally banning me from doing digital painting so i could make this)
At Twin Ring Motegi for the 2017 Idlers 12hr endurance race
I attended the 2017 12hr of Motegi with Team RWB last weekend. Here are a few quick snaps from the day. More shots coming soon.
It was great to see the reborn RWB Adriana in her new ‘Heavenly Wide’ form. This is the car that crashed at last years event, and was left in bits and pieces. Nakai-San and his team have done a fantastic job putting her back together for this years event. Nakai-San himself did a few laps in the car, setting some super quick times which was great to see.
It was fun to take some time out in the Gran Turismo cafe and enjoy some of Motegi’s own ramen noodles for lunch. They have a few Gran Turismo simulators set up in the cafe as well, so we set about trying to break some lap records (tried).
Also managed to pay a visit to the Honda Collection Hall, which I always like to do when I visit Motegi. It sits in the grounds of the circuit and hosts a fantastic collection of old, new, race and stock Honda cars and bikes. Said ‘waddup’ to Asimo while I was there too.
Work tomorrow doesn’t start until later in the afternoon. Decided to take advantage of this rare opportunity and watch Fantastic Planet over on FilmStruck.
Criterion’s description on the “Info” page interprets this 1973 animated art film as an allegory about the dangers of conformity, but what I really savored was all the delicious world-building. Through the eyes of a human narrator, director Rene Laloux explores the bizarre culture and customs of gargantuan, blue extraterrestrials known as Draags while simultaneously offering brief glimpses of how these unwitting oppressors regard their diminutive “pets” (ranging from fascination to revulsion)—and each is utterly alien and incomprehensible to the other. As our protagonist gradually transitions from slave to rebel to savior, he traverses gorgeous, grotesque landscapes populated by terrifying monstrosities (think H.R. Giger as reimagined by Max Fleischer), and every single frame is an absolutely breathtaking painting.
I’m almost ashamed to admit that I chose Fantastic Planet over literally everything else in FilmStruck’s library primarily because it runs a brisk seventy-two minutes; it ended up being one of the best sic-fi movies I’ve ever seen.
