I didnt really like some episodes of AHL personally because some of their mentors were really rude to them. I know they did it so BTS could learn, but BTS BARELY knew English then and probably didn't understand them half the time so yelling at them to do stuff didn't help and probably made them feel terrible. Cough cough @Coolio
Well I mean yeah…it was part of the experience… That’s just how it was I guess. They didn’t want to sugar coat it. i dunno
this got like 4 times longer than I anticipated, I’m really sorry orz It’s basic beginning stuff I guess, stuff that you must have seen everywhere already but I can’t begin to tell you how important it is, at least to me, to know what the hell that mass you’re drawing is. Even if I’m not the best at it (and even if I could use some anatomy studying lately coughcough), it’s something I’m PASSIONATE about and something I consider you have to do, to learn and absorb in order to draw people and be happy with it. Because in my case, once I kinda sorta got the hang of drawing bodies, I felt my hand free, relaxed. I felt happy as hell with what I started being able to draw and I enjoyed drawing bodies 210%
Requested anonymously: A one shot where the reader has never been able to orgasm through masturbation. When Dean finds out, he offers to help.
Warning: smut, masturbation
Word Count: 2300
A/N: Hope you enjoy, anon! XOXO
“Truth or truth?” Dean asks, grinning a little sideways in that way that lets you know he’s just the right amount of drunk.
Truth or truth is the game you play when you’re both feeling a little wound up, needing to blow off some steam. You’re too old for stupid dares and too nervous for dares that might actually make you touch each other, so you settle for sticking to truths. It never amounts to anything, but you both enjoy the sexy words said in the dark as you lie together on one bed, a bottle being passed between you, like you have a life and a personality outside of monsters.
I’m sitting in the mess hall, swirling my spoon through my bowl of frugnarf, when Kap’ka*click*ka (I call him Kap) sits down opposite me.
“Human Monique, greetings.”
“Greetings, Kap. What’s up?” My eyes are still on my bowl.
“I have a most pressing query for you.” He pauses dramatically during which I decide to look up at him. Meeting my gaze sternly, he says, “Are you injured?”
The question throws me. “What?”
“Injured, Human Monique! Are you injured?” The long flabs of skin along his neck flap with his agitation, and I know he’s actually being serious.
“No,” I say firmly. Then, more gently, “Why do you ask?”
Six eyes blink at me before one of his hands reaches to take my right hand, the one not holding the spoon. “You use only one of your fore-appendages. I feared you were concealing an injury,” he explains. “We *click*Ref*click*fer often do this when we wish to deceive others.”
It is in that instant that I understand. Kap’s species is entirely ambidextrous. All seven of their limbs can work apart from the others. The species even has an extra cortex in their brains to allow for this kind of dexterity. (I mean, seven limbs! That also isn’t counting their three legs.)
I smile at him and pull my hand away. “No, Kap. I’m fine. Really. I’m just a Lefty.”
“I’m left-handed. Most humans are either left- or right-hand-dominant. Lefties are less common.”
“You mean to tell me that your entire existence relies solely on one appendage to do everything?”
“Not everything,” I amend, enjoying watching his eyes bulge. “I mean, I type with both hands and I can eat with both hands, but things like writing or firing my rifle, I use my left.”
“You can’t be serious!”
“I’m dead serious! Sure, there are a few humans who are ambidextrous, and you can certainly learn how, but it’s hard work and, frankly, it’s a waste of time.”
“But what happens if your dominant, left hand is cut off by a prif’s pincers? What will you do? We don’t have the technology to replace your dominant, left hand, Human Monique!”
I grin up at him and switch my spoon from my left to my right. “Well, I guess I’ll be a Righty, then,” I say and take a bite.
Sarah and Amy had lunch together a couple weeks ago - they are good friends and they have a lot in common so keeping in touch is fun.
Sarah’s favorite things about Shaw: her eating food with knives.
She also says Shaw’s foreplay would have been cutting each other and punching each other and biting.
Shaw was masculine and always equal to the boys - never portrayed otherwise. That was her most favorite part - how tough and violent.
Amy’s favorite part about Root? “I think Sarah should answer.”
Amy loved getting to flirt with and annoy Shaw, because Sarah is good at portraying the anger. “But I knew she loved me.”
“Both the characters kind of ran things - the girls in charge” - Amy on Shoot
Sarah’s fave ep was 6741!
Sarah took the role because it went to dark places you don’t get to go to on TV.
Sarah’s fave scene: end of 6741 by the carousel! It was very challenging but will always be the 1st thing she thinks of when thinking of POI
Sarah says “I only look good because Amy makes me look good.”
Amy says she liked the part (in 6741) “was when Sarah was biting me”
Amy says she loves their first meeting - the iron and all the sexual tension.
“Was this relationship always meant to happen?” Sarah: (shouting) YES! F**K YEAH!!
“How do you prepare to do a different version of the character, like in 6741?” SARAH: Acting is a lot of human psychology and we are all more than just one thing. With actors you find the closest part of you to the character; she tried to tap into herself there.
Sarah: “There were plenty of times when I was playing Shaw that I didn’t know if I was doing a good job.”
Sarah: I wasn’t supposed to emote much, but we aren’t like robots.
SS: “Kissing Amy is like biting into the most succulent peach. It’s sweet & juicy & just a little wet. It’s better than your dream, sister.”
Someone asked them to improve a scene and Amy says “Hasn’t someone here written some fanfic? … We’ll do a stage reading of anyone’s fic.”
Sarah and Amy acting out Root coming back alive.
“Did you miss me?”
“Is that you?”
“Are you ready for this?”
“I’ve never been more ready”
“Look behind you”
(They [fake] kiss)
Someone asked about SHOOT kinks and Amy just said “we’re gonna keep things ziptied.”
Sarah says Shaw definitely realized she loved Root back in s4; that at the beginning she didn’t have a thing for Root & took her by surprise
“In an alternate universe the two of them were together and made little SHOOT babies.” - Sarah
Sarah says in s4 the flirtations started working, like when Root picked her up on the bike & when Shaw realized she needed Root to help her
Sarah says 6,741 was a result of the fans feedback on Twitter.
Amy says that Root got her hacker skills from playing Oregon Trail.
Sarah said kissing your friend is like kissing your sister.
Amy says the weird part is the audience of the cast and crew when shooting, but she was glad Sarah was there.
Amy also said that there’s not a person she’d rather have that experience with than Sarah. (About shooting 6741)
Amy says Root made the decision in s5 she did because if she chose Shaw, there would be no world anyway.
Amy also says that being The Machine was the closest Root could get to having both.
Sarah likes doing films because you can take more chances and move at a slower pace.
Amy likes TV because you gain a family in the crew & the characters get to evolve and change. “But I guess shows can be cancelled.”
“In canon we see Shaw has a PD, and Root probably does as well, how does that change the way you approach the characters?”
Amy says that’s where you got a lot of quirks of the characters, but you just play them as truthful to what’s on the page.
Sarah says she remembers she had to look up Axis II disorders to learn how to play things accurate.
Sarah loved working w/Bear b/c the takes were different because you had to work w/what he wanted to do. “You’re not gonna out cute the dog”
Amy telling a story about how they were shooting outside and it was SO COLD they were both getting frostbite but they had to keep shooting. But then the animal handler came & had to take Bear because it was too cold for him, so she was jealous.
When asked, “Did Root have a crush on Hannah?” Amy said, “She was before your time, you don’t have to be jealous.” To Sarah.
Talking about new projects- Sarah: It’s kind of like a TV version of Inception. She goes into people’s subconscious to help them.
Sarah also did an Amazon pilot called “Halfway House” where she plays a meth addict.
Amy says she’s afraid to talk about her new project.
Sarah closes the panel by acknowledging the support of fans and is thankful because they’re why they are where they are.
Your accent is more than fine, you don’t need to have a Parisian accent to be a legit francophone. French is spoken by 542 millions of people in 30 different countries, and I don’t even know how many different French dialects may exist… French language is multicultural, and you are part of this big community.
You are a legit francophone even if you make some mistakes. Guess what, I make mistakes too, I check grammar online too, like everybody. French IS complex and French rules are HELL to us, native speakers, too. Seriously, I feel your pain.
It’s okay if you started learning French a while ago, stopped, and then want to get back to it but don’t really know how to do it. You don’t have to apologize. You are not betraying anyone for stopping for a moment, a week, a month, a year… It’s totally okay. We all have ups and downs and you will find motivation in due time.
It’s okay if you read French well, write French well but struggle to speak. It takes time to get confidence and speak up. It will come some day, believe me. I learned English just like you are learning French, I had trouble speaking too. Hell, I was impressed by native speakers and lost all my words! You will get confidence as your knowledge will grow, you’ll get more practice and it’s going to be easier for you. Trust me, been there, done that, it’s legit.
Don’t forget that French is awesome and you are awesome for learning it!
Guess who got emotionally scarred again by playing the Platinum Demo after finishing FFXV?
Me. I did. I never played the Platinum Demo (nor Episode Duscae, bad move on my part). So when I saw that it was still available, I tried it out.
DON’T DO THIS GUYS.
Playing as cute baby Noct when you know how his fate turns out is going to HURT. A LOT.
Especially when you:
- learn that one of Noctis’s most treasured gifts from Regis was a soccer ball that he had always asked for. Then what he just wanted was for his father to play with him. But since Regis is a busy king, he can’t. So Noct would just wait by the Citadel steps every sunset waiting for Regis to come home, but no one shows up. So he just learned to ‘not care’ anymore. (tears)
- You’re led to believe that his ‘safe place’ is the Citadel, Insomnia. But after you fight an Iron Giant, baby Noct’s real ‘safe place’ appears: the REGALIA. It’s because when he’s riding the Regalia, he gets to be with Regis all the time. (then he gets to be with Prompto, Gladio, and Ignis later on) This makes the whole crash at Gralea and Noct saying goodbye to the car all the more painful. (It was already painful to begin with; but knowing this makes it especially tortuous).
Noctis has been dealt such a shitty hand. Best worst sacrificial lamb ever. He needs a real happy ending!
A nice city (small and big) I finished up today (forgot that I had it, finished it up in like 5 mins my dudes)
and guess what guys, I once again used the amazing @8pxl ‘s tutorial which can be found –> here (I learned how to use hyperlinks, I feel like both an idiot and a genius at the same time, a gediot if you will.)
(I like how they look like a loong thing when put next to each other, also still learning how to do water effects, I have some ideas, but they are hard to execute in Gimp, and Sai is just not cutting it for pixel art)
i guess it just hurts that i was practice. that you will love the next one more fiercely. that you will not do them wrong the way you hurt me. that you will be better at communicating. you will be better at asking for what you want instead of going behind peoples’ backs to get it. you have learned how to be honest. you have learned how to kiss, how to touch, how to make somebody feel wanted. you have learned what destroys a relationship and what keeps it going. and i guess it just hurts that i taught you how to love someone who isn’t me. i guess it just hurts that i was practice and now i’m nothing.
mmmmnn martin & finn’s characters are just. really interesting to me tbh heres me rambling a bunch
martin always pushes his problems away and never looks back? found his long lost son? just escape the citadel. dooming a whole species in The Visitor? gotta build this rocket. nope. bye. see ya (x)
but then finn realizes this, gets mad at him about it and launches him into space, but it doesn’t really leave him unscathed because now when he messes up he thinks, shit, i’m selfish like my dad
but he’s really not like his dad, because finn was Literally offered the choice to escape all his troubles and burdens and finn accepted that he couldn’t run away from everything and decided to accept everything in his life, the good and the bad, while his dad just. chose to fling himself off their plane of existence
(and semi unrelated but finn Does know how to face his mistakes and apologize for them, Bun Bun was a great episode)
the really fun thing i like is that when he realizes this, finn tries to use it to help others (helper genes hell yeah!!) and tells the other humans in the islands that it’s okay to feel pain, it’s okay to have troubles in your life and face them with everything else. (like frieda believed in, i guess. there’s more to life than just pure happiness, and that’s okay, that’s what makes it great)
it’s something martin could never do, it’s something finn learned to embrace, and it’s really fun to watch and god i love adventure time good fucking BYE
edit: semi unrelated too but finn and minnie’s dynamic is also pretty cool bc while finn learns to balance the good and the bad minnie doesn’t take problems very well either
she throws herself away (literally) into her Helper work and insists finn stays at the islands so he’ll never be hurt again
so, anyway, finn is great, and i rly love AT’s take on the Life’s A Big Grey Mess moral
When I confide in people that I was raised by a witch, they get a really stereotypical picture in their head. Gothic homes, a weird amount of chanting, cauldrons, etc. The Addams family type stuff.
But my childhood was far from that. In fact, I didn’t even realise there was anything different about the way I was raised until I was around 10 or 11.
Because instead of talking explicitly about witchcraft, my mother taught me about the properties of herbs as she taught me how to cook. Or she told me what colours meant when I was colouring in. Or she’d mutter a prayer for safe driving if the weather was bad. I got my first pendulum when I seven, and I wore it as a necklace until I saw my mother use hers for actual readings and decided to join in.
I don’t know. I guess it’s the same as if you were raised by artists, or poets. You didn’t learn everything technically, but you do have a lot of background knowledge deep in your head, maybe a few skills you picked up from them.
I was never pushed into becoming a witch, either. My mother was taught by her aunt, who was convinced that we came from a long line of witches but there was never really any proof of that. My grandmother didn’t really approve, because my grandmother was an Anglican, but when it became clear that my mother was not abandoning the church, grandma was sort of, “Okay, you do you.”
I decided to really start learning the craft when I was 13 and decided it was cool. Obviously it grew to a lot more than that, but it wasn’t necessarily being raised in that environment that pushed me towards this. I think it was meant to be.
Today was really really a shitty day. Got a super bad grade at one of my exams even though I revised for hours and hours. But hey, LIFE GOES ON. It happens to everyone. After all, we are all human.
So there you go, I got really inspired to write about failure because guess what? IT’S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD.
1. CHANGE YOUR VISION OF FAILURE
Yes. Change it. Failure is, by definition, a lack of success. Well have you ever realized that failure can actually be a good thing?
Ask yourself questions:What can I do to improve? What thing can I do differently next time? How can I avoid to make the same mistakes again?
Learn from your failures and this will lead you to success!
2. TRY AGAIN AND MOVE TO WORK HARDER
Failure is okay. But take this failure as a practice and work on it. Got a bad grade in vocabulary? Rewrite exercises, revise with different methods. Failure shouldn’t bring you down, it should help you to improve by showing your mistakes so as to not do them again! But if working on the thing you failed makes you too upset, just move on to another subject and try again the next day.
3. IT’S OKAY TO LET IT ALL OUT
Upset, angry? Let your feelings out. It’s fine. Talk to friends/family, share it on social medias, write in your journal, listen to music, whatever will make you feel better. Once you’ve had your grieving time, just don’t go back on it. It’s the past right? And the past is behind. Now time to move on and focus on the future.
4. JUST A REMINDER: ANYONE WHO WANTS TO DO SOMETHING WITH THEIR LIFE WILL FAIL
How do you think singer or actress or anyone famous succeeded? Just like you, they had times when auditions went wrong, times when they didn’t get the role or didn’t get elected. It happens to everyone, even to the best of us!
And for the end, some famous quotes to remind you that you’re not a failure and I believe in you and so should you:
“Success is the ability to move from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.” - Winston Churchill
“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times, I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” - Michael Jordan
“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try Again. Fail again. Fail better.” - Samuel Beckett
'Because forever started the moment she left after our first conversation while she was walking away’
'Because I wanted to walk away with her, with her hand in mine, to a life that I know we can have. She was in my head for days and my chest ached to speak with her. Thats how I know I love her. A month, a year, a day that was all it took. A day, less than that. A conversation and I fell. That was enough. I had to know more. I had to know her. And now I do. And I’ll learn more about her. And guess what?’
It was the twentieth fucking time you tried to call your father, Anthony Stark, and you fell, once again, on his stupid voice saying that he was “too busy to answer” and that he’d “call back” but “probably not”. Damn that man.
In your entire life on this Earth, you were pretty sure he never picked you up on time somewhere. Never, ever. He was just always late, so much that you came up with a trick of actually telling the wrong times for him to be on time. If something was at 6pm, you’d tell him it was at 4. But even with that trick, he still often managed to be fucking late. Which is why most of the time, your stepmother came to get you. But Pepper, wasn’t available today.
You smiled, thinking about your “stepmother”. You were so glad she was in your life, being pretty sure that if your dad never had the help, he probably would have lost custody of you before you reach the age of 1…You considered Pepper your real mother. You never met your biological mom as she just dumped you in front of your dad’s house, with a note. One paternity test later, and it was confirmed you were his…You were the first step to his transformation, the first to help him become the man he was today. Better.
So you grew up with Pepper around. She filled in brilliantly the mother role, even before she actually started dating your father (you remember the day you finally convinced him to just tell her his feelings, and smiled).
