is anybody talking about emma shutting off the lights and the importance lights have in navigation????????
like… they’re the only way sailors can safely enter harbors when they’re in dangerous coastlines; shutting them off means that finding shore (and so going home) is basically impossible (via noorasaetlre)

Hello friends! I’ve been playing with an idea for a little while now, and after chatting with @chocolatequeennk and @skyler10fic, I think it might be a fun one.
This idea is that of monthly self recs, where every content creator out there (authors, artists, gif makers, graphics creators, etc.) puts together a monthly list of everything they’ve created during that particular month. Use this to celebrate everything you’ve created and be proud of yourself!
Let’s try to make this an Ongoing Thing, shall we? I want everyone to be proud of what they’ve accomplished over the course of a month. Don’t be scared, don’t be shy. Make those self rec posts, and tag them with #monthly self rec so we can all see them and celebrate with you!
We will be hosting the first Shin Soukoku (Atsushi/Akutagawa) Week on February 27-March 5, 2017!
Day 1: moonlight / fairy tale Day 2: aqua blue / highschool Day 3: birthdays / coffee shop Day 4: mandarin orange / harry potter Day 5: feline / hunger games Day 6: the town where the wind blows / crossover Day 7: free day
Submissions must have Atsushi and Akutagawa’s relationship, romantic or otherwise, as the main focus.
All forms of art/media are accepted. This includes but is not limited to: Fanart, fanfic, graphics, metas, cosplay, AMVs, etc. Any reposted or edited work that is not yours (sourced or unsourced) will not be considered.
While we accept suggestive and NSFW entries, we would only post them if the work has been tagged appropriately and is under a READ MORE.
Please include what day and theme(s) your work is about within the post.
All submissions must be tagged with #shinsoukokuweek. Make sure it is within the first 5 tags so it would be easier for us to find.
Don’t be shy to shoot an ask for any questions and concerns you may have. In the meantime, please help us spread the word by liking and/or reblogging this post.
We can’t wait to see what everyone will come up with!
The show is almost over! In few days we will see our great couple together again! This is fantastic time to be together as fandom and say a great goodbye to couple that influenced our life a lot. At least they did to me!

So you wanna learn how to make simple icons, and make them fast? This is the post FOR YOU. I constantly brag about my 1,500 icons for each of my muses, all simply edited and edited fast with minimal effort on my end. (Note, this tutorial ISN’T how I edit my icons, but how I make editing them easier on myself.)
For this tutorial, you will need: Photoshop! I use CS6 and while these features might be in earlier versions, I suggest getting CS6 to make things easier on yourself! Icons to edit! Make sure you’re allowed to edit your icons if you download them from someone else’s icon set.
If you are cropping your icons yourself, try to save the image with the artist’s URL- that way, you can credit the artist if someone asks for it, and you can delete the icon if the artist comes and asks you not to use their art. If you didn’t crop your icons yourself, don’t worry about it, but please remember to be respectful if an artist approaches you and asks you to stop using a certain icon that uses their art! If they say to stop, stop using the icon and delete it like they asked you to.
That said, let’s get right into this! If a part has confused you, please don’t be afraid to head to my inbox and ask me for clarification! Also note that this is MY METHOD of making icons- there is no Right or Wrong way to make icons. This is simply how I do them, and how I edit 1,500+ icons in a matter of 10 minutes.
To utter dismay of some of us and endless happiness of others (the two of us being a good example of both), TVD is almost over. For eight seasons, we have followed our favorite character go through pain, happiness, more pain and even actual death.
If TVD and Damon have been or even used to be a big part of your life, just the way it is with us, you can (and should!) take part in our big final event dedicated to the end of the show - Damon Salvatore Entire Show appreciation week.
If you have been with us for a long enough time, you know how this works. The event lasts [a bit more than] a week. You can make gif sets, graphics, write meta, basically do any original work that corresponds to the theme.
Please, tag your contributions with #dsaw show. It should be one of the first tags so we can find it at tumblr.com/tagged/dsaw-show and reblog it.
Now, the themes!
Day 1 (March 4) - Favorite season
- Favorite episode
- Favorite scene (hard, we know!)
- Favorite romantic ship
- Favorite brotp
- Favorite heartbreaking moment
Day 7 (March 10) - Favorite happy moment
Day 8 (March 11) - Goodbye Damon (free theme)
Note: since we know not everyone watches TVD after season 6, we’re going to tag posts with spoilers about s7 and s8 with #s7 and #s8. We’ll also tag the romantic ships so you’re safe. :)
We hope you guys will take part and have fun with us!

I love how our first look at Yuri makes it seem like he has that regular Spectacle-Wearing personality. The slow lift of the head that turns his glasses opaque, the downturned mouth - all he needed to do was speak in a low, calm voice, maybe readjust those glasses cause Anime, and we’d have thought that was his personality in a nutshell.
But nope! Here comes chibi Yuri to the rescue dispell that stereotype before you can say theduality of man. Incredible.
