fine lines

would gabe wait for jesse to be legal?

?????????????????? No? 

If he does it’s not consciously, it’s because Jesse is absolutely insufferable at 17 years old. 

Zay - “Why did you switch characters?”

This scene had lots of winks to the audience. Aparently, Farkle knows nothing about sports and Lucas knows nothing about science. It was quite absurd and not at all what I expected. They didn’t want to look for Riley’s bear. They know that looking for it…is fruitless. (As an aide, it is a very fine line to have an episode that shows your characters NOT wanting to do something.)

You could take this question at face value, “They panicked.” Why? Maybe Riley’s bear went somewhere where they couldn’t go….or wouldn’t be able to leave.

You could also take Zay’s question as a bit more meta. Why did you switch characters? Are you saying Farkle is supposed to be with Riley instead of Lucas? And Lucas is supposed to be on be outside watching in?

I see Sunless Sea and  Fallen London in general being often described as “Lovecraftian” and I guess if we’re talking about abundance of tentacles, it’s true. But the actual Lovecraft’s writing (from what I’e read at least) is mostly long-winded rambling with rapidly dropping coherency of descriptions, and that’s fine if you’re into the hyping up the horror and not actually, like, describing it. For me personally it never really worked because I don’t get scared just because the protagonist is scared, that’s not how my empathy works. 

SS on the other hand uses vastly different approach, giving you short, but poignant descriptions, and casually dropping details of horror in the midst of them. It’s almost one liners, really, but because they are so vivid and laconic, they provoke imagination. It’s all also mixed with dark humor, that is dry and ironic, but not cynical, and it’s a very fine line to toe. 

And to that already seemingly unstable mix of dark comedy and chthonic horror SS manages to organically add wanderlust and genuine mischief. The locations are bizarre, but beautiful and distinct, and really interesting to visit and explore despite the risks. 

Honestly, half of this game’s charm lies in design and aesthetics, and that’s impressive since it’s basically a text game and there are no graphics to speak of. The style reminds me of The Void, another game that had “greyish-dark background + splashes of color” palette, and used bizarreness and distinct original designs as it’s pillars. The Void didn’t really know what it was doing, despite being criminally beautiful, but SS apparently does know. And I already mentioned that music is sublime.

Are their Pony sized Pugs and Chihuahuas running around?

Nah. There’s a fine line between Alternative Fantasy Mount and Immersion-Breaking Gag :) I designed Duane’s Temple hound today and actually made it pretty otherworldly looking. Kind of a shaggy bear dog thing with the most adorable chub paws for gallomping around the snow..

generic--excuse  asked:

Hey, this might sound a bit creepy but I just scrolled through your entire blog and oh my fucking fuck your art is amazing. I was wondering, with your sky backgrounds with silhouettes, do you use watercolour for the silhouettes or something else?

Ahahah…!! Well, that’s my kind of creepy.. thank you!!
And yes, I do. Unless they’re white then I use opaque white, and for fine lines I use a pen.

writers, what is the etiquette on unfinished fics?

after seeing this post it made me wonder about our stance on unfinished fics and i wanted your opinions

say i love an unfinished fanfic and i want to share it with the world, but

there is a fine line between showing your support and being an ungrateful nuisance

so, writers, if you had an unfinished fic, would comments and asks about it be welcome? how would you feel about people asking if you’re planning ti continue it? when does the fangirling become bothersome?

El Rey Y La Reina || Marco&Bella

“For about a week, yes…No, you can still reach us. This line is fine.” Brushing her hair over her shoulder, Belladonna listened to the voice on the other end of the phone as she glanced down at the flyer before her. A reunion. Initially she’d found it quite silly when they’d received it in the mail. Two, one for her, one for him, as if it didn’t occur to the administration that living at the same address meant that one would have sufficed. Still, it was more surprising that they’d actually decided to make an appearance, especially considering how busy they’d been over the past couple years. But perhaps that was why they did it. They deserved some time to ‘relax’, though she was well aware that their idea of relaxation would still seem like work to most. But that’s was set them apart from the rest of the crowd. It was also what brought them together. 

“I have the files with me, yes. You’re surprised?” she asked, her lips quirking slightly as her assistant chuckled on the other end of the phone. The door to the bedroom opened just then and she glanced over as Marco walked in and closed the door behind him. She didn’t have to point to her earpiece for him to know that she was on the phone, and she didn’t have to tell him for him to know exactly who she was talking to either. After nearly a decade together, things like that become second nature, after all. Looking back down at the flyer on the table, she pushed it aside to grab a file, flipping it open and scanning the numbers. 

“Yes, go ahead with that. Keep us posted…Yes. Of course. Ciao.” Hitting end on her earpiece, Bella pulled it off her ear and set it down on the table before running her fingers through her hair. With her back still to Marco, she shifted around the papers in the file, glancing over at the clock on the table for a moment. “Dinner reservations at seven,” she said to him casually, reaching up to pull off her blouse as she spoke. Her eyes continued to scan over the numbers as she idly folded and set the blouse aside before undoing her pants and wiggling them down her legs. Left in her matching lingerie, Bella closed the file and set it aside before turning to face Marco, pacing towards him slowly. “Being back in these suites reminds me exactly why I got myself an off campus residence as soon as I could,” she said with a little quirk of her lips. The suites weren’t bad, not at all, they could put a five star hotel to shame, it was just that Bella enjoyed her privacy and had gotten used to exactly that. 

Standing before him, she pressed her hands against her lower back, rolling her shoulders as she did so. For the past couple weeks, she’d been feeling all achy. Not in the way you would after a particularly hard workout, but a different kind of ache. Nothing horrible, nothing she couldn’t handle, she’d probably just been working herself too hard. Wouldn’t be the first time, and it certainly wouldn’t be the last. “What about you?” she asked, tilting her head at him, a teasing smirk just barely quirking her lips. “Nostalgia hitting you yet?”

Don't apply concealer directly onto any lines around your eyes or crows feet, it will just crease. Use a smoothing, resurfacing primer before you apply your makeup instead.

For those of us with skin texture issues like wrinkles and fine lines, enlarged pores, acne scars, dehydration:

The Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Retinol Serum ($40 on its own and just over $80 with the C15 Super Booster) is what I’ve been using for a month now, and my skin looks and feels UNREAL. My skin looks relaxed, brightened, and vibrant; my pores look much smaller (especially since I exfoliate regularly) and I constantly get comments on how smooth and even my complexion is. I only recommend this for those of us who need advanced antiaging treatment; most of you should keep reading.

Instead, you can benefit from the Resist Ultra-Light Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum ($36). It’s lightweight and safe to use on oily, acne-prone skin. It lightly hydrates and, more importantly, combats the signs of aging and sun damage with a potent concentration of antioxidants. If you live in a dry climate and find that the winter months aggravate your skin, the Resist Anti-Aging Clear Skin Hydrator is a good $32 add-on. If I had this when I lived in Toronto a couple winters ago, I would have been set - the dry, freezing climate destroyed my skin and gave me the worst cystic acne of my life. If you’d like a more potent combination of the two products, try the Resist Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum ($36), which is richer and more suited to dry, damaged and dehydrated skin.

To exfoliate, snub the scrub this winter and go for long-term skin resurfacing with either the Resist Daily Smoothing Treatment with 5% AHA ($32) or the Skin Perfecting 8% AHA Gel Exfoliant ($28). If you prefer BHA/Salicylic acid for your acne breakouts, the Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Gel Exfoliant ($28) kicks the ass of stubborn pimples and blackheads for an easy daily treatment. (It’s also available in a lotion for dry skin.) You’ll see a terrific reduction in lines, acne scarring and pore size.

harempantsginger  asked:

I have very sensitive eyes and am searching for a good eye cream that won’t irritate my eyes and make them sting. Do you have any recommendations?

Did you know the skin around your eyes is ten times thinner then your face? Fact. This means it is super important to take care of the skin around your eyes, especially since this is where the first signs of aging usually appear. No one wants crows feet, fine lines or crepey eyelids so prevention is the best cure.

If you’re one like me and have sensitive eyes that have a hard time getting on with mascara, eyeliner, eyeshadow and eye makeup remover don’t fear eye cream just yet as there are many great gentle and natural alternatives on the market.

One Flew Over The Flat Woods (Kaz Hirabayashi) - Spell

This here is Kaz Hirabayashi, the former lead guitarist of HUSKING BEE and FINE LINES with his only solo song to date, ‘Spell’. The song itself is actually pretty normal by his standards, with the sort of chill acoustic sound first heard in his only HUSKING BEE song 'Just a Beginning’, then extending into his solo-then-full-band project FINE LINES. Lyrically, he stands out a little bit more than similar Japanese singers. This is most likely due to his better than average grasp of the English language. (Or at least, what I’ve seen from his Twitter.) Not so much as say Takeshi Hosomi of the HIATUS or rapper Shing02, but Kaz’s English lyrics here are pretty ace. And of course, his accent does get in the way a bit with many words coming out sounding off even by Japanese Engrish standards but it really does add character to an otherwise lovely song.
