for embellishing the little guy in

8

hi guys today I made a tutorial on how to make my favorite art nouveau-y embellishments! these are a super fun and easy way to add a little emphasis to a drawing and you can make all kinds of designs once you get the basic flow! If you have any questions feel free to ask and let me know if there’s any kind of tutorial you’d like for me to make in the future !!!

I am seriously concerned about the casting directors on Reign...

Guys, are they ok? Are they even trying? Do they think we’re stupid? Have they employed a script adviser to check the consistency of what they’re making? If they have, they need to fire them real quick, because whoever they are hasn’t seemed to realise that CATHERINE’S CHILDREN ARE ALL REAPPEARING AS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PEOPLE who are WAY TOO OLD!

Let’s take a trip down memory lane to the good old days when Reign was kinda alright.

Remember this little guy? This lil’ cutie from Season 1? Lil’ Charles. Just in case this picture doesn’t make it quite QUITE clear that this person is a young CHILD, here’s another one: 

He’s tiny right, I mean Megan Follows is small, and he barely reaches her shoulder. Ok good, we’ve established that Charles in Season 1 was a young child of around eight years old. Good stuff.

Now I know Reign has a habit of stretching, embellishing and basically destroying history. Mary and Francis are supposed to be like 14 at the start, and clearly they’re older, but that’s ok, that’s fine, we’ll roll with it.

 The show begins in 1557:

Nice, some fluffy goats and fluffy clouds just to prove this. I’ve done my research people.

So in real life, ol’ Francie Boi was supposed to die in 1560 after being King for roughly one year

And sure thing, as I said, Reign likes to stretch history like, BEYOND the breaking point. So it’s entirely plausible that on the show Francis was king for a little bit longer, maybe we’ll give him an extra year or two. Which means the next time we see young dude Charlie he’ll have aged… hmmm around five years or so? He’ll be approx 12, right? 

WRONG! What the FuCk ma dudes, this guy right here is NOT CHARKLES I don’t know who he is, but Catherine and the rest of them should all be really concerned, they’ve been hella duped! He’s frickin old enough to fool around with this random chick

He’s aged like 10 years in 5, and NO ONE EVEN NOTICED, not Catherine, not Francis, not Mary, and especially not anyone in the writing or casting department apparently. 

Now let’s move onto Elisabeth, Catherine and Henry’s eldest daughter, dis chick from the pilot

Remember her? The one who married the Spanish dude, and then they had to have sex while a whole lot of old men watched, and Mary and her lil’ sweet naive buddies got all hot and flustered cos they were sneakily watching too? Yeah that one.

As you can see, this woman is clearly a BRUNETTE. Well, apparently Spain has really changed Elisabeth. Like, REEAALLY changed her. So good to see her back in 4x01! She goes by Leesa now, she’s blonde and older and basically looks like a completely different person…

Oh Wait.

I guess Catherine just has so many children she honestly can’t keep track and doesn’t even notice when they return to France looking like they’ve endured intense plastic surgery to reconstruct their faces, or somehow age them enormously.

Catherine has the names of all her children written in her bible, although her youngest son Hercule is missing, but I think the camera has just cut off the bottom of the page.

 At the end of Season 3, Catherine brings back this dude below to lowkey threaten Charles with MUrdEr (the most ooc Catherine has ever been, honestly this show is just…)

Now god knows who this one is, I mean it could be Lil’ Henry making a comeback from Season 1 when he was blonde and cute (see below) and got kidnapped by his insane potato-sack-wearing half sister

If so, he too has had a significant dye job at the castle salon. Except whoever this kid is in Season 3, he can’t be Henry because he’s considerably younger than Charles

I mean, what’s the deal? Charles gets hit by the ageifying-ray gun, but his little bro Henry doesn’t? How is that fair?? They never actually mention him by name, so possibly it is Hercule.

Which would mean that this hunky blonde dude Megan’s been posting on her Instagram and captioning with “My boys”… 

IS HENRY WHAT THE FUCK YOU GUYS! He looks even older than Charles, I CANNOT BELIEF THIS

This makes absolutely ZERO sense, I do NOT understand. The casting directors and writers of Reign either don’t comprehend human viewer intelligence and the ability to pick up on the ENORMOUS INCONSISTENCIES THEY THROW AT US WITH WORRYING REGULARITY, or they themselves have serious memory issues. Or possibly they just don’t care. I really don’t know.

I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way to watch Reign now is by ignoring these massively aged characters, ignoring the yawn storylines, ignoring when the only original characters we have left suddenly rewrite their whole personalities; I’m looking at you Catherine ‘I would literally die for my children’ de Medici, suddenly going, ‘Oh yeah Charles, I have loooads of other sons, don’t you forget that, I might just kill you to become regent again, k, love you, bye.’

I’ll just focus on the pretty clothes and Megan Follows’ profound talent to somehow make something out of this steaming pile of insanity.

Long story short, the only thing Reign is consistent at, is being inconsistent.

Even so, I’ll watch it every week cos I’m total trash. Rip me.

IM SORRY BUT I SAW THAT ONE GIF OF YOURS WITH THE GUY STUMBLING AND GRABBING THE DUDE'S CROTCH. ALL I CAN IMAGINE IS GABRIEL RETELLING HOW HE CAME BACK TO LIFE AND HE JUST GOES "OH NO THY HAS STUMBLED CATCH ME" AND FALLS TOWARDS SAM AND PURPOSELY GRABS HIS CROTCH AND IM DYING MY SABRIEL IMAGINATION IS OUT OF CONTROL IM SORRY YOU ARE A GOOD CORGI GABRIEL FRIEND, OK IM LEAVING SORRY BYE

@nanika69 WELL NOW I NEED TO PUT SOME GIFS TOGETHER

So Gabe loves telling the story of how he came back to life. He tells it over and over. Sam indulges him, hell, he even finds it amusing, but he also secretly eye rolls every time Gabriel starts. Just a tiny eye roll though. Not even noticeable.

And the Archangel makes such a show of telling the story. Hands gesticulating as he paces the room, never sitting still when he tells it. 

“Yep, it was miraculous, fantastic, a thing to rival the Big Bang. I was gone, dead, finito, and then BOOM. There I was, standing outside your bedroom door.”

And Sam can’t help but laugh, raising his eyebrows, just sitting there waiting for Gabriel to get done telling the story again. He sets his beer aside, wondering what little detail Gabriel will embellish this time.

“It was almost like some kind of divine intervention, wasn’t it, Sam? Course, what we did that night really was divine.”

And by this time Dean is gagging from his chair in the corner. “No. Huh uh. Nope. Stop right there.”

“Shut it, Deano. You’re ruining our romantic reunion story.”

Sam laughs softly, almost letting his eye roll show at the two of them bickering. “Guys, knock it off.”

“Now, where was I? Ah yes…”

“So I try to make it to Samshine’s bed, but on the way I stumble. Of course I grab the biggest thing in the room to catch myself with, which is obviously Sam’s coc–”

“Dammit, Gabriel!” Dean yells, cutting the angel off. “Shut the hell up, nobody is even buying this story.”

That gets a little smirk out of Sam, a knowing glance between him and Gabe. Of all the times for Dean not to believe the story, it’s the one time the archangel was telling the truth. 

Yahoo Movies exclusive interview with Robert Pattinson by Kevin Polowy

How familiar were you with the source material for Lost City of Z? Had you read David Grann’s book?

Yeah, James gave me the book when it was a totally different script. Or I may have read it long before there was even a script at all. I think at the time he was thinking about me to play Percy’s son. Because I must’ve only been about 21. And then I just kind of stayed with it as time went on, and it went through all these different casts. [Laughs]

It sounds like the script changed a lot through the years. What were the biggest changes made over time?

When I first read it, it was a straight action movie, like Indiana Jones. It was this rip-roaring adventure movie, and not this kind of epic, elegant saga that takes place over 30 years.

Costin is a much more minor character in the book. What did you build off of to shape him?

Well, I always thought with Percy’s character it would be a good idea to have a foil. I always interpreted Percy’s character as this man determined to fix the reputation that he thinks he’s deserved, and which his father has ruined for him. … He keeps going back to the jungle again and again and again, just to fix this insecurity. So I liked the idea of Costin being this character who basically had a total disregard for the English aristocracy or any kind of social climbing whatsoever. So he didn’t really want to bring anything back from the jungle, anyway. The entire point for him was just to go because he had nothing to live for in England.

How much information was out there about the real guy? Any sense of his military career?

Well, Costin in reality was a refrigerator salesman. There was an advert in the Times of London saying, “Adventurers Wanted.” That’s actually how he got the job. [Laughs] He was one of the only people who applied for it. But he was in the army — he was a physical fitness instructor. But really, I liked the craziness of just applying to be an adventurer.

You rock some pretty rad facial hair in this movie. Did that look grow on you — pun intended — or did you not care for it?

By the end, I was definitely over it. But at least when you’re shooting a movie with your face covered, there’s very little makeup to be done. It was definitely a “Get out of bed and that’s it” situation. That helped in the middle of the jungle.

You’ve played lead roles, you’ve taken supporting parts — this is more of a supporting role in an ensemble. Do you have a preference these days?

There are certain directors I just really want to work with, and you bring what you can to a part. But in some ways it’s kind of nice [to play a supporting role]. It is a little bit liberating because you don’t have to concentrate on the narrative thrust of the story. You’re just purely thinking about character and just embellishing it a little bit. But with this, I would’ve played any part in it, pretty much.

Costin has some great lines in this movie. I think one of my favorites is when you say to Hunnam, “We’re too British for this jungle.” Did you guys feel out of your element filming in the jungles of Colombia?

No, I really loved it. I guess in some ways, it was kind of hard. But it’s just incredible, going to work every day in a little boat, going up river in the middle of virgin jungle in Colombia. It was very, very close to being on vacation, to be honest. [Laughs]

But the type of vacation where you couldn’t eat anything?

Well, yeah. There’s a certain degree of harshness, and we were trying to lose as much as weight as possible in a really short period of time. So I guess there’s that element to it. But there’s a reason those guys wanted to keep going back as well. It’s amazing.

Do you consider yourself pretty adventurous? Could your relate to that thirst for exploration?

Yeah, definitely. I do sometimes find myself gravitating toward a job just because it’s shooting out in the middle of nowhere. If I’m shooting in a city, generally it can become a repetitive scenario. If you have anyone taking pictures on their phones, it just constantly reminds you of the reality of your life. And I find it becomes a little more difficult. Whereas if you’re out in the jungle and everyone is on the same page as you, you just sort of believe in character a little bit more.

What is your own personal Amazonian adventure? What is the biggest risk you’ve taken in your career so far?

I don’t know: I’ve done things which I thought were going to be really risky, which ended up not being risky at all. I generally try to keep finding ways to push the envelope as much as I can, and whenever I get the opportunity to do it, I generally try to take it. But I don’t really worry about taking risks, to be honest.

What’s something you thought was risky that ended up not being so?

I did this movie years ago called Bel Ami, which was at the height of all the Twilight stuff. It was this Guy de Maupassant novel about a guy who seduces women specifically to screw them out of their money and ruin their lives. I thought that was a relatively subversive choice to make at the time. [Laughs] And no one really seemed to think the same thing.

What is your relationship with your Twilight fan base these days? Has the madness that surrounded your life calmed down at all?

It’s definitely calmed down in terms of my everyday life, but mainly because I spend more time in London, which is totally different. And I’m doing more parts that just sort of interest me, while in a lot of ways taking a little bit of a step back just to learn and get better. I guess I’ve never really acknowledged what the fan base is, or even if I have one. [Laughs]

Oh, you have one.

But, yeah, I’m always pretty curious about what people say afterward, and who turns up, who likes the movie. It’s always kind of random. But I love it when someone who you just really wouldn’t expect says, “Oh, I liked you in this.”

What films have been most unexpected?

It’s always just really strange. I’ve done a bunch of movies which I thought might’ve been impossible to be seen. There was this film Little Ashes, where I played Salvador Dalí, from years and years ago, and just the other day I was walking down the street and somebody came up and said, “Oh, that’s my favorite film!” You kind of forget that people even watch your films. [Laughs]

What do you think of all the universe building that is going on in Hollywood right now and the possibility that they could reboot Twilight and expand its world? Could you ever see yourself playing Edward Cullen again?

Really, they’re expanding it? So I’ll get my own spin-off? [Laughs]

Potentially! It could be called Edward: Homecoming.

Yeah, exactly.

But would you ever dip back in if the opportunity presented itself?

I mean, I’m always kind of curious. Anything where there’s a mass audience — or seemingly an audience for it — I always like the idea of subverting people’s expectations. So there could be some radical way of doing it, which could be quite fun. It’s always difficult when there’s no source material. But, yeah, I’m always curious.

What type of role haven’t you been offered yet that you’re eager for?

I sort of, to a fault, rely a little bit too much on being inspired by things that land on my doorstep. I literally just did this movie called Good Time, which I think is a really interesting role. But I would’ve never, ever predicted that I would’ve liked it. [Pattinson plays a New York bank robber running from the police.] I think that he’s basically the embodiment of an angry commenter on the Internet.

That sounds great.

Well, if you watch the movie you’ll probably be like, “Huh? What are you talking about?” But one of my favorite things to do — this is quite embarrassing — but you know how when you look on Amazon and you see a product that’s got a consumer review that is so scathing, on like an electric toothbrush or something? Like, literally buying this toothbrush has ruined this person’s life. I always click on that person’s buying history, or their other reviews, and I’ll just read them for days and days. And I’m really amused. These people just have to vent this kind of furious anger on product reviews. I’ve always found that sort of character really interesting. [Laughs]

anonymous asked:

HII! PLZ IMAGINE the kiss scene in OotP, but with Cedric instead of Cho - question is, does Cedric bend to be on Harry's level, or does Harry grab him by the collar to make him shorter?? Or both??

Okay I love you so much and I’m shrieking, also this is a headcanon of mine as well so I’m just going to embellish on this a little (it ended up longer than I thought sorry?):

  • Cedric is the guy who finally convinces Harry to set up Dumbledore’s Army bc they both know that they need it after what they saw in that graveyard
  • Cedric is a year above and really talented when it comes to magic so he would help out and alongside Harry teach the D.A. lessons.
  • When Harry talked to the class or taught a spell he always looked for Cedric just for comfort, because it’s a lot of pressure to teach others D.A.D.A when you have so much on your plate already
  • And Cedric would just give a little smile and nod of the head back which both of them thought was barely noticeable but the wHOLE OF DUMBLEDORE’S ARMY KNEW
  • Imagine Harry demonstrating a spell to the class and him turning to ask Cedric if he has anything to add and Cedric just walking over and holding his hand and lifting Harry’s wand arm a little higher because “it wasn’t quite right”
  • Everyone rolling their eyes while Cedric and Harry take every opportunity to ‘correct’ each-others demonstrations, just to be close to each other, when they are both more than capable of every spell they’re teaching
  • One day they’re left in the Room of Requirement bc lbr everyone is trying to make it happen by now
  • They talk for a bit and because Cedric is taller than Harry, as they’re talking he leans his head down a bit to hear Harry better, and Harry moves closer and they’re just waiting for the other to close the gap
  • It’s too slow and Harry gets impatient so he leans up a little and kisses Cedric
  • But then they’re off balance because Harry is on his toes and he accidentally falls back a tiny bit and so Cedric wraps his arms around him to steady him while Harry grasps at his shirt collar and pulls him down closer, all the while still kissing each other
  • There’s mistletoe above their heads and it’s just so perfect and then they hear the door open behind them and turn to see Nigel who was returning to collect something he’d left behind, and he blushes and apologises for interrupting and backs out of the room as quickly as possible
  • Harry and Cedric turn back to each other and just burst into fits of laughter because they’re idiots thinking no one would interrupt and “oh my god, the look on poor Nigel’s face”
  • They take comfort in the fact that Nigel would be too embarrassed to tell anyone so they wander back to their respective Common Room’s in a happy sort of daze planning to keep it quiet until the next day
  • When he enters the Hufflepuff Common Room Cedric is smiling and he looks up and the whole of his house is just grinning at at him knowingly, and Harry gives the Fat Lady the password and is swamped by all of his friends who all give Harry a good elbowing as he sits there and blushes
  • Despite Cedric and Harry being so oblivious to the fact they were crushing on each other so hard, everyone else saw it coming and because it was Hogwarts, when they finally got together it was only natural that the whole school already knew
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MITSUHIDE!

This is a VERY rough little doodle in honor of Mitsuhide’s birthday. I wish I wasn’t as exhausted as I am now so this doesn’t seem so half-assed (imo) lol. Idk but Mitsuhide strikes me as the kinda guy who would forget it was his birthday because he works so damn much. Anyways, I hope it’s sufficient. I’ll probably rewrite it when I can function more properly


Another year passed just as swiftly as the last had; The decorations, though an annual occurrence, always varying in their display and embellishment, more grand than the previous year. By now it was a surprise to no one when the guest of honor had yet to show himself right as the dishes of the feast began being served. Ever hard working, he remained holed up in his room, neatly and efficiently working through the mountains of paperwork to review.

Each year the retainers took turns coaxing Lord Mitsuhide out of his room in hopes that he would join them in the main hall to celebrate the birth of none other than himself. Last year, it had been Lord Hideyoshi who had been sent to escort him, and this year, the duty had fallen to you.

“Lord, Mitsuhide, may I come in?” you announced yourself before sliding the thin paper door open on its tracks, shutting it again once you were inside. He did a double take when he realized it was you, placing his brush down and offering you a boyish smile.

“To what do I owe this pleasure?” your lord mused, his fond gaze following your form as you strode up to him. He let out a hum of appreciation when your fingers made their way into his hair, gently stroking it. He was more than a bit surprised when you slipped the thin but dark piece of fabric over his eyes, fastening it securely in the back.

“What’s this for, my darling” he exhaled with a chuckle, a hand reaching up to capture yours within his grasp. The other moved to lift it so that he may look up at you, but you quickly caught his wrist before he had the chance.

“Ah ah, no peeking” you chide with a small laugh of your own, tugging gently at his hands, urging him to stand. He complies, thankfully, an amused smile marking the lower half of his face. “Do you trust me, milord?” you ask, playfully.

“With my life” he says with conviction, and the earnestness is enough to make your heart flutter a bit. Sneaking up to give him a quick peck on the cheek, you add afterwards:

“Then allow me to guide you”

***

The sound of your light steps seems much heavier now that Lord Mitsuhide has been deprived of his sight. Though he doesn’t need his eyes to know where the two of you are headed. After serving so long, the path between his office and the main hall is so familiar that he is fairly confident that he could journey it without your help.

When at last you stopped, permitting him to remove his blindfold, you and the entirety of the Owari Oda clan was gathered, simultaneously cheering “Happy Birthday, Lord Mitsuhide!”

And as smart as he is it takes him a moment to register, once again, that he had let the date of his own birth slip past him. A rueful smile curls his lips as he looks to the one who led him to the celebration this time, you, with adoration and graciousness. Unable to help himself, he places a chaste kiss to your lips as thanks, earning him a few hoots from the crowd and successfully making you flush.

And after a moment of being flustered you make your way into the center of the ceremony, rejoining him, happy to be the one to have the chance to lead him there.

Worked up this illustration of a couple I saw on the train a few weeks back… I embellished a little on the design; the guy didn’t have this body frame, & neither wore gold, but both carried a powerful sense of Afrikan pride about them, which I loved… People couldn’t take their eyes off them… I loved that too.

'The Lost City of Z' Star Robert Pattinson on His Epic Beard, Embarrassing Amazon Habit, and If He'd Ever Return to the 'Twilight' World
Robert Pattinson on April 5 at the ‘Lost City of Z’ premiere (Photo: Steve Granitz/WireImage)

Robert Pattinson has been waiting for his new movie The Lost City of Z to be revealed to moviegoers for nearly a decade. That’s about how long ago the 30-year-old Twilight alum was first approached by writer-director James Gray for his adaptation of David Grann’s popular non-fiction book about explorer Percy Fawcett’s long and dangerous search in the early 20th century for a hidden indigenous civilization in the Amazon.

Pattinson hung with the project through multiple lead changes (from Brad Pitt to Benedict Cumberbatch to, finally, Charlie Hunnam, who plays Fawcett). He even outgrew the role he was initially in the running for: Percy’s son Jack, played by Spider-Man Homecoming star Tom Holland. Pattison now portrays Henry Costin, a minor character in the book expanded for the screen, Fawcett’s hard-drinking, thick-bearded aide-de-camp. (The movie opens in theaters on Friday.)

In an exclusive interview with Yahoo Movies, Pattinson talked about the risks he’s attempted to take over the course of his career (even if no one noticed), if he’d ever consider returning to role of vampire Edward Cullen, and his embarrassing online habit that will pay dividends come one of his next films, Good Time.

How familiar were you with the source material for Lost City of Z? Had you read David Grann’s book?
Yeah, James gave me the book when it was a totally different script. Or I may have read it long before there was even a script at all. I think at the time he was thinking about me to play Percy’s son. Because I must’ve only been about 21.

~So I actually suck at writing, but recently thoughts of my eerie home town has really been on my mind. I thought I would share this creepy true, but highly embellished story with you guys.~

As a child, the last place you would expect to find comfort in was a cemetery. But in my world, that’s exactly where I found mine. You see, in my little square mile town in New Jersey, there was only so much you can do as a 10 year old. In our town there was a church, St. Anthony’s to be exact, our small Christian academy, a general store, a morgue and the graveyard. The cemetery was our first playground, and the morgue was our second. Fucked up right? Me and my best friend Austin used to play in our backyard everyday. Our cemetery backyard, but then… something happened.

You would think that the gravestones that lined the graveyard were eerie, maybe to some, but not to me and Austin. Some were recently placed, whereas others, cracked and crumbling. Mold covered the engravings dedicated to the dead, trees leaning towards the stones, branches reaching out to each other. The smell of old stone filled the dry air, weeds covering the graves of the dead, loved ones long since stopped visiting, but we did. Everyday. Gravel paths weave through the maze of graves, allowing passersby to pay their respects to the people lined up in the earth’s embrace. I still remember to this day, all around are the tombstones with their faded etching, a roll-call for the people who cannot answer. Growing up in a Christian community I was always told, for when their bodies became still and cold they became a cadaver, not a person. Their soul, their living being had moved on to God, to walk with Jesus and be healed.

Me and austin went to different schools. I went to St. Mary’s, the Christian Academy, and Austin went to the public school outside of our town. I would walk home from school and wait for Austin at the end of our street for him to get off his bus. After our homework and chores were done, we would runoff to the rows of grave markers. To get to the paved road, we hiked up a mountain of a hill, out of breath and tired. At the top of the hill was a mausoleum, you know that thing in the haunted mansion that goes underground inside a cemetery, that hold even more dead bodies. To get to the mausoleum, we had to climb rocks that had been cemented together, in order to lift the small structure further from the ground. Me and Austin would always climb up these rocks as if it were some vast expedition, but revisiting it now, the rocks end only reached to my mid torso.

We had started our grand journey climbing to the top of the rocks, excited as always. Reaching the top was always some sort of victory for the both of us, and on that day for some reason, it peaked our energy levels. I could tell in austin’s eyes that he had an idea. An idea that obviously wouldn’t gain the consent of our parents.

“I dare you to knock on the door.” I remember the distinct taunt in his voice. And the I bet you won’t do it smirk that crawled onto his face moments after the words were created on his tongue. I honestly can’t remember how we knew what the mausoleum was, I suppose it’s just common knowledge for someone who grew up in a cemetery. I never believed in ghosts, or the ability for the dead to come back to life, but the dare I had just received made me apprehensive. I felt uncomfortable even standing a few feet from the building.
“Why don’t you do it?” I was never an outspoken kid, contrary to now, I was quiet and would rather take the safe route.
“I’ll do if if you do it first!” The classic 10 year old phrase. in my mind I could back out and be seen as a baby or I could stand by what I believed in and prove there is nothing to be afraid of. My choice of black double doors were set on hinges as an entrance, not that anyone ever willingly entered. They matched the rest of the tumulus, which I have now learned is a mausoleum that contain columns. They look similar to structures built by the ancient Greeks. I sat leaning against the furthest column from the door pondering my options when I finally decided that I’m not a baby.
“Well?” Austin jabbed me, provoking me to get moving. I walked over to the doors with false confidence. I was tense but I acted as calm as I could. My fist was balled and the knock when my fist collided with the door came quietly first and then there was silence. I want nothing more than to tell you that the paranormal is all bullshit… but what happened next still chills me to this day and I refuse to go within 10 feet of the doors. After the knock as I began to walk away, proud and self-assured that nothing was going to happen. I remember the exact moment I was walking away from the front door when what sounded like a furious person was now hitting the door with all their strength, with any heavy object they could find. I could tell you that we both calmly brushed it off as nothing, but that would be straight up bullshit. The truth is we have never hightailed it so fast anywhere in our short young lives. However, when we reached the safe wooden porch that was laid across the front of my home, we both tried to brush it off as the echo of my knock. Even though we both knew… there’s no way that’s what it was.

Epilogue

A/N: I found this among my drafts, and I thought I may as well post it. It was written before Journal 3 came out, obviously enough, but I still like the idea. Can’t promise frequent updates - I still have a lot of details to work out - and I can’t rule out running out of steam, but here’s what I have so far.
Also watch out for mentions of alcohol abuse and, generally, Bill being bad news for Ford’s mental health. And also just plainly bad news.

***

“Not that it’s any of my business, buddy, but why on earth–”

“As you said just now, it is none of your business.”

The man tilted his head as though to concede the point, and didn’t press the matter any further: all he did was busying himself counting the money once more - a large wad of cash that was most of what remained of Ford’s grant for research. Still, he didn’t mind parting from it. It would be put to good use. The only thing that mattered right then was keeping Bill Cipher out of his mind. Keeping Bill out of their world as well would come easier once he had achieved that, wouldn’t it?

Wouldn’t it?

now. it needs modifications. we were experimenting with hiking the front up to show off my boots so it looks a little hokey right now. it needs more embellishments and such. i’m going to make add ons for the boots and make a steampunk masquerade mask for it ect…

we were thinking of doing a whole arm gauntlet thing (you know the sort of thing)

looks better in this one. needs tights.

coffeeshop!jeonghan

ok so this wasn’t on my list, but it was requested a while ago and i recently got inspiration for it. so, this will probably be another series (that i’ll finish perhaps ??)

anyways….. enjoy! this is the first part of coffeshop!17

  • so jeonghan’s family has owned this cute little cafe since like forever so he’s pretty much grown up running around the shop being helpful and occasionally stealing pastries when the employees weren’t looking
  • once he actually started “working” at the shop everyone loved him because he’s really personable and sweet to the customers
  • esp the older women and teenage girls
  • he’s really oblivious though, so he doesn’t notice all the phone numbers scribbled on the napkins that are given back to him
  • or if he does find them he’ll give them to jun like “i think these are for you” and jun doesn’t say anything but is secretly like r e ally
  • but yeah jeonghan is an A++ barista and probably the most helpful person working there
  • he usually does whatever he’s asked when it comes to the cafe because he likes to help out in any way that he can, so he’s usually stuck training the newbies and taking the shifts that no one else wants to work
  • really close with the cute lil waiter jun and flirty cashier seungcheol
  • jeonghan is sorta the middle man when it comes to them though?? like their personalities are very outgoing so jeonghan has to be like “chill” when they’re all together
  • his uniform is always really neat except for his name tag which can never seem to stay straight… it’s always so crooked
  • once hoshi told him customers were leaving because they kept finding hair in their drinks and he got so embarrassed
  • no one ever saw him with his hair down again rip
  • always really graceful and calm behind the counter, even when the whole cafe is in chaos during rush hour
  • very very smiley all the time (which attracts more customers)
  • overall just great for business
  • sooo ok the first time you met jeonghan was outside the cafe. he was running late and you were walking super slow with your face glued to your phone and……..… you know what comes after that
  • you didn’t realize you crashed into an actual person until you opened your eyes and jeonghan practically had you in his arms
  • both of you sorta stood in that position for a few seconds until you were like !!!! what o m g ! because he was super attractive and holding you so close
  • he apologized like fifty times afterwards and even offered to buy you coffee but you kinda brushed him off because he interrupted your mobile disney movie marathon
  • but he was also v v cute and made you all flustered a few seconds ago so you eventually told him it was ok
  • a few days later you had to start your new job at this really quiet and cute cafe despite knowing nothing about working in a coffee shop
  • aside from that u found out that it is a really cool place to work and you quickly become friends with the other newbie mingyu
  • after working at the cafe for like two weeks you notice how much the other employees talk about how amazing the owner’s nephew is and you’re honestly so confused because you’ve never seen this “angel barista.” does he even exist???
  • anyways because you’re a newbie who has no say whatsoever your schedule got changed around so that you’re working some of the cafe’s busiest hours (also due to the fact that you embellished a little too much on your application)
  • you met jeonghan for the second time when you started working during rush hour and you kinda freaked out a little after seeing him
  • but he didn’t seem worried about it and all he said was “ah……you look familiar.” when you guys met again and you were just like ??? what ?
  • your first day working rush hour was really chaotic and every time you turned to look at jeonghan he was so calm and you couldn’t believe it hOW did he do it.……… but once he saw that you were struggling he tried his best to help you and kept asking if you were ok,,,, you can do the tables if you want
  • is surprisingly patient with you………… like he didn’t even get mad when you broke the blender
  • everyday he asks if you need him to walk you home but you always say no because you can’t !! you get really awkward around him and being alone with him would be too much
  • one day it started raining really hard after your shift and you tried your best to stall after you clocked out because you really didn’t want to walk home in the rain. jeonghan noticed and was like… do u want me to walk you home and being a scaredy cat you said no,,, it’s fine you’ll just end up getting wet too BUT SURPRISE he has an umbrElla. you couldn’t say no to that so you guys walked home in silence for like the first five minutes until jeonghan started talking to you about the cafe……… the convo got deep really fast bc jeonghan brought up the fact that he really wants to become a singer but he has his family to worry abt and you told him that u weren’t sure if your advice would help him since you’ve never been in that situation before
  • he was like no!!! i really value your opinion !! with that smile of his and you sorta just melted right there
  • after that you didn’t say no to him walking you home again
  • you didn’t really notice but he was v v protective over you when you guys walked… like he would casually switch places with you if you were walking too close to the street and if it was raining he had to bend down a little to stay under his umbrella because he was holding it closer to your height than his
  • as the two of u get closer he starts complimenting you often.……… but they’re always really subtle and out of the blue which leaves you v confused all the time
  • you’re always hanging out w jun and seungcheol now bc apparently “they come with jeonghan, deal with it”
  • BUT IT’S SECRETLY BC THEY’VE DECLARED THEMSELVES JEONGHAN’S WINGMEN and they have to make sure he’s not being weird around you but they’ll also awkwardly leave you and jeonghan alone at random times ????
  • oops the secret is out jeonghan likes you
  • and he’s always tripping over things when you’re not looking bc you make him CLUMSY
  • once at the employee picnic jeonghan kneed you in the stomach while you were playing soccer and he spent the next two hours apologizing and checking up on you
  • also the employee picnic was the first place he tried to confess to you… it was when you were cleaning up and he suddenly got really serious so you asked if he was fine and he opened his mouth to say something but mingyu came in like HEy guys wh- o shit and jeonghan didn’t talk to him for like two weeks
  • the second time he sorta confessed to you was at the cafe where two high school girls kept trying to get his attention by “accidentally” spilling their drinks or getting a water cup fifty times. they eventually just went up to him and started talking (u were listening in tho dw) like two minutes into their convo you got bored so you stopped but all of a sudden one of them asks if jeonghan had a girlfriend and he was like no, i don’t. then the other one asks if he likes anybody. he didn’t reply immediately so you subtly peeked up at him and when you looked up he was staring RIGHT at u looking straight into ur soul or sum and just went “yes, i do”
  • you avoid him for the rest of the week bc what was he thinking??? how could he do that !! to yOu!
  • he confronts you about it with a box of heart shaped cookies (jun: “hyung this plan is foolproof she’ll totally fall for you, i made these cookies with loove) and actually manages to get a confession out before you get the chance to tell him off abt earlier
  • you accept the cookies but you tell him that he has to make you coffee if he wants you to accept his confession as well
  • he does it in like .03 seconds and at this point you’re a smiling mess because you happen to like the sweetest boy in the world (and he likes you too)
hot fireman to the rescue

As an apology for not being on much the last few weeks, have my draft for the firefighter/kindergaten teacher!Jonny and hockey player/suburban resident!Pat AU

Patrick Kane really fucking hates spiders. They’re creepy and crawly and have a totally unnecessary number of appendages. Thus he is totally justified in almost burning his house down in a valiant quest to vanquish the evil eight-legged beast.

He’s doing a public service, okay, and maybe trying to go at it with a homemade blowtorch wasn’t the brightest idea he’s ever had. But he’d seen it in a movie once, and it had looked pretty damn badass, and the next thing he knows Patrick has spray paint in one hand and a lighter in the other.

And, well, then his laundry room catches on fire.

So the last few days I have gotten comments and questions about what supplies I use ranging from paper to pens and paint- I know I’ve loaded things before but maybe not as complete? So here we go!

My paper of choice is Canson Mixed Media. I work on all the sizes depending on the project but my favorite size to work on the last year has been the 7x10. It’s small enough to drag around but big enough to not feel limited.
I have a post in my tag that talks a lot more about this wonderful brand- I buy them at BLICKS Art supply, but I’ve seen them at Aaron Brothers, and Michael’s.

Some more pokekids stuff! This time with their family/parents! Sorry I don’t have as many sketches as I usually do for these, but I’ve just been super busy with other things. But, for now, how about some character info!:

Melba- Single mom of Lin and Bev. She’s as serious as she is snooty, and she’s the boss both at work and home. Smart and snappy, she looks out for her kids and makes sure they stay out of trouble and are always fashionable. Her and Lin can butt heads sometimes, but they can never stay mad at each other for too long. Although Bev is adopted, Lin isn’t too sure if he was or not. He assumes so, but Melba won’t really talk about it.

Aunt Olisa, Octavia, Olive, and Opal- Rowans guardians who’ve basically all adopted him as their kid. They’re all very talkative, and especially like to gossip, but they love to hear about Rowan’s day. Rowan is pretty much their pride and joy, and whether they mean to or not they can baby him at times. They all also work as assistants to Melba in the fashion industry (which is how Lin and Rowan met).

Wiman- Poppy’s father and the local marine biologist. He often lives out of his ship which is either out at sea or at dock, but the townsfolk are very fond of him and are always interested to hear his stories (both scientific and  “embellished”). Although he may seem like a tough guys at first, he’s pretty much a nervous wreck and especially worries over Poppy. He’s easing up though, as he’s getting more used to Poppy spending days hanging out with Rowan and Lin when he’s out at sea (but he’s not done freaking out over when she swims all the way out back to his ship at the end of the day. “The ocean’s a dangerous place!”).

And that’s all! So, I know I’ve said this before, but I might go silent for a little bit while I work on my comic and possible another animatic project (I’m still thinking about it, we’ll see). For now, I hope you guys enjoy!

ok but imagine starting out as lowly interns with Ashton at a big tech company and you’d become close, bonding over coffee runs and late night filing and being generally exhausted

twenty years later though you were married and both on the board of directors and ashton would never miss a chance to tell the incoming interns the story about how he met his wife in THIS. VERY. INTERNSHIP. and they could VERY WELL MEET THEIR FUTURE SPOUSE. and you would just roll your eyes because every time the story became more dramatic and a little more embellished but your life turned out pretty swell so you imagine you picked a good guy 


for quiffedluke and featuringluke‘s CEO!5SOS blurb night!!

New friend: so you like Harry styles?

Me: Um, yeh, I guess he’s ok. Like, if I had to pick any celebrity in the world he’d probably be it. Or if I had to pick any guy… any person really… who I love and admire more deeply than any other I’d pick him. Probably. I mean I might be ruined for any other guy because he’s pretty much perfection personified in my eyes and I would literally die for him…. But yeh he’s alright. I guess.
