five arms

reiswonderlanduk  asked:

40.“I never stood a chance, did I?” please?

Kristoff watched as Anna danced around the room, a different man on her arm every five minutes. He watched her smile up at them and laugh at everything they said. He watched as she whispered into their ears and gave them a look he thought was reserved for him.

He couldn’t take this much longer and when Anna approached him, he suddenly felt like he didn’t belong here with her.

“I never stood a chance with you did I?” He said sadly.

Anna’s eyebrows furrowed as she looked up at him. “Kris.. what?”

“It’s not like we were even dating. I don’t really know why I’m here if I’m honest.”

Anna grabbed his arm, spinning him back around to face her. “Elsa said you were welcome.”

“Did you even want me here?”

“Of course I did Kristoff.”

He glanced back at all the royals in the room and turned back to Anna. He picked up her hand and looked her in the eyes.

“Take care of yourself okay?”

“Kristoff?” She watched in tears as he walked away, too shocked to even move. “Wait! I love you!”

Everyone in the ballroom came to a standstill as they watched the scene unfold.

Kristoff turned back around. His eyes were tearful and his throat had closed up.

“You deserve better. Bye Anna, I’ll always love you.”

“Shiro,” Keith breathes, completely and utterly floored.

Shiro, tiny Shiro, gasps. He scrambles at the back wall, pressing himself further into the corner as he stares up at the four shell-shocked Paladins with desperate, naked fear. He chokes out three lost and miserable words:

“Who are you?”

First glimpse of smol!Shiro from @butteredonions‘s killing-me-softly fic, The Size Of Our Actions. More forthcoming.

20 things you can expect as a traditional (2D) animation student that they never tell you:

  1. you will love your rough drawings more than your clean
  2. if you don’t flip your drawings your teachers will know. oh they will know.
  3. you will draw an insane amount of detail at first in hopes to impress your teachers. don’t. they’ll get you to inbetween that shit and it’s not fun. trust me, there’s a reason successful cartoon shows have nice, simple, clean designs.
  4. line weight is hella important. as is colour theory.
  5. storyboarding is not easy. it’s actually in demand rn because of how time consuming/difficult it is. lots of fun though especially if you’re a creative person.
  6. the animator’s survival kit is your bible. doesn’t matter that thing weighs as much as a small child. take that shit with you everywhere. it is now your baby.
  7. glen keane is considered a deity amongst animators.
  8. your teachers will likely look hella young but irl be much much older. this seems to be a side effect of working in kid’s shows for over 10 years. it is a good thing.
  9. every animator knows the impending dread of deadlines. yes, this includes your teachers. it is likely many of them will be working at studios/their own projects the same time as teaching. that is why they are immortal and their wisdom incomparable.
  10.  speaking of deadlines, say goodbye to a regular sleeping pattern and balanced lifestyle
  11. if your wrist starts to ache like a bitch then start drawing more with your shoulder. loosey goosey baby. loosey goosey.
  12. life drawing is essential. don’t skip that shit. anatomy is important. even if your character has six arms and five eyes you still need to be able to make them move.
  13. you are regarded as a dying breed amongst the 3d kids. that’s ok. give them a pencil and paper and ask them to animate a 4 legged walk cycle traditionally. see what happens.
  14. however if you’re anything like me, maya will look like a foreign language to you.
  15. srsly wtf is maya? what sacrifice to the animation gods must i make to understand this program?
  16. watching your favourite cartoons and animated movies regularly is important not only to motivate but is essential bonding time with your classmates. only now everyone wants to talk about how beautiful the backgrounds in steven universe are as well as cry over the character designs.
  17. perspective is hard. period.
  18. there is always that one kid in class who’s already done their 10,000 drawings and are untouchable. those are the ones to sit near in the hopes you can try and get some of that raw talent to rub off onto you.
  19. coffee/energy drinks/sugar will rise to the top of your already crumbling food pyramid.
  20. you improve lots. and some days something will just click and all of a sudden you’re firing out 40 frames an hour. 

and finally no. 21 the most important thing of all: bring a blanket and something squishy to sleep on and leave them at school. there will be emergency nap times. sometimes weekly. sometimes daily.

Do you guys ever stop to think…
How arms….
Just end
And the there’s like
Five more little arms?
But those arms have like
Armour
And we call them nails
But that Armour is also hair It’s just that it’s really really hard hair.
