omg so the catalogues i designed for our senior thesis show came out really well and everyone loved it. my prof was so impressed he was like, “should i just hire this girl and make her do all of our other design stuff” and i was like “are you serious? seriously? yes. no, seriously… please.” and he said we’d talk about it later omg.
Decided to binge-watch all of Underverse so far and it’s even more magical than I remembered it being :’) I still get that hyped-want-to-scream feeling in my chest with every episode :D Definitely want to draw something for the Underversary, just not sure what yet…
I played bot with one of my friends for the first time in a few months as our signature Sona and Jhin duo. On our first game, we wound up facing an old friend of ours playing Renekton. Both of us felt bad about killing him, but we had to since he would rip through our team if we didn’t focus him. In the end, all three of us agreed it was a great game.
Honestly, I think my dream is to live in a big house full of girlfriends and we all hang out and take care of each other, and we have a big pool and a bunch of land where we do gardening and we all are super close and snuggle each other to sleep.
holy shit I love all your hc's alot? (If you want to) Im kinda curious and wanna know more about Japanese Roy and Iranian Elrics??? (I'm glad someone else noticed how Xerxes is lines up so well with it, bless) ahh ty in advance!!!!
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I’m trying to post them more bc they make me happy and this fandom needs all the love and content it can get. ;) Sooo… TONIGHT’S HC IS ABOUT ROY AND ED AND THEIR HERITAGES!
My headcanons differ, actually, between modern AUs and Amestris for Roy. Since we don’t get a mention of any Japanese equivalent (minus, I think, one line where Breda mentions the origins of Shogi) but we do have Xing, I actually headcanon him as half-Xingese because he’s drawn, IMO, similarly to the Xingese characters (and also, canon needs less white dudes) on his mom’s side. She was one of Chris’s girls, and Chris’s brother went and knocked her up, so Chris agreed to raise him because she got attached ok.
However, in modern AUs, I actually go with Chris and her brother as being part Japanese as an homage to the origins of the manga. ;) For Roy (as opposed to the Elrics) I don’t see him as being super, super into his heritage; I imagine he probably picked up the language because he wanted to and learned some about it but he’s cool where he is.
….I do have some AUs where he lives in Japan and has dual citizenship and is a model, tho, so ymmv.
AS FOR THE ELRICS. Pls consider Iranian Hohenheim and Jewish Trisha!!! Ed isn’t really into any of the religion at…. all, though the Elric household was definitely not one that contained pork. Hohenheim isn’t really practicing either, but Trisha raised them with religion and even though Ed didn’t take to it, Al definitely did and actually pulls from both sides of his family. (Also!!! Ed and Al having bar mitzvahs??? please????)
Hohenheim actually immigrated from Iran and I looove Trisha being a UN ambassador, so she’s a polyglot, and Ed and Al definitely know at LEAST Farsi and possibly a couple other languages.
Not Japanese. Roy alternately insults and flirts with Ed in Japanese and it drives Ed up the wall and Roy loves it. Not that Ed doesn’t do the exact same thing.
(Unfortunately, Al DOES understand what Ed is saying in Farsi so his shriek of horror is enough for Roy to figure out how inappropriate that last comment just was)
When you are playing with a friend who just got the game so to offset your skill and make the game seem new for you both, you choose a character you never play. (And maybe find a new character to main.)
*another oooh! submission from the genius Battleborn scifirice.
