You Sure As Fuck Aren’t Mine

I drew every single one of those leaves, I’d say I’m never doing that again but I’ll be lying it was actually quite therapeutic. That quote has been drawn a lot but I like the hc that Neil on occasions finds himself looking at Andrew like that again :>

Verstappen a 'racing nerd', says Red Bull team-mate Ricciardo
Daniel Ricciardo has described Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen as "a racing nerd" who comes across as more knowledgeable and experienced than people would expect

Daniel Ricciardo has described Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen as “a racing nerd” who comes across as more knowledgeable and experienced than people would expect.

Ricciardo has been impressed by Verstappen’s approach for an 18-year-old following his arrival at the team in May after being promoted from Toro Rosso in favour of Daniil Kvyat.

“It’s not nice getting beaten by someone young,” Ricciardo told Autosport.

“I definitely see it now, he is young, but in racing terms he is very experienced.

"Racing has been his whole life, from what I understand, and although he may still have a lot to learn, for his age, he has plenty of racing experience.

"Even the way when he’s in engineering briefings and talking about some details on the car, I don’t even know what they are.

"He’s a bit of a racing nerd, I guess!”

In terms of head-to-head, Ricciardo has so far had the edge in qualifying by a 7-1 scoreline, but Verstappen has scored 102 points to the Australian’s 97 over their eight grands prix together.

Ricciardo, a three-time grand prix winner, believes Verstappen’s arrival has made him raise his own game.

“There’s an argument I am now going beyond a level I thought was there,” he said.

“With Dani [Kvyat] I always felt I was on top and just doing as much as I could, but then Max came in.

"It’s a tough one because I always like to think I am pushing myself to my limit, but the human body is interesting, so maybe there is always more.

"I definitely feel I have driven well from the start of the season, but perhaps we’ve both really pushed each other.”

Ricciardo believes that as well as raising his game against Verstappen, he has learned from experience in other areas as well.

“Sometimes you can go into a race and expect too much from it, which is always a bad thing,” he added.

“For example you may think you expect to be first into Turn 1, or whatever, and it doesn’t go your way and you’re fourth, then you are already on the back foot.

"You might then lose momentum for a few laps, or it will take you that long to clear your mind.

"With every driver, if you lock a brake in one corner, you are probably thinking about it at the next corner, so little things like that can always be improved.

"As a rookie that was maybe a weakness, not being able to get rid of the mistake quickly enough.”


Max Verstappen, racing nerd. This is quality stuff I like to read haha

☆*. I'VE MOVED!

         Okay, so basically I’ve grown tired of an unnecessary alias (one taken up because I wanted to keep my indie separate from here and et cetera) and this blog is a bit of a mess when it comes to how many extra urls I have saved on it and tags that used to not have tags getting ones and me not fixing the old tag put in and such, among other things (even explaining it sounds like a mess omg), so I thought maybe it was time for me to move over and get myself organized. It all kind of fell into place to do so, so I think it’s the right thing! Anyway, if you’d like to keep following me, my 1x1 blog is linked above. If you prefer something that has fandom posts and a lot more quotes and inspirational photo type things, I have a blog for that, too, that I can give you on the other blog. And yeah, it’s been a nice time here, and I’m hoping people will follow me over there, but don’t feel obligated. So that’s it! Oh and P.S. you all can all me my real name now: Kylee. Cool? Cool. See you there! P.P.S. I’ll queue this in case it’s going missed and in the readmore below I’ve tagged my partners so hopefully they get the notification. Eep okay bye.

Keep reading

yo I loved your Rafa fic but I wasn't reading (y/n) as myself so I lowkey pictured myself being the one having sex with Daveed just sayin ok bye

“Daveed has had lots and lots of sex”

yeah I quoted myself

Writing that fic was a lot of “They’re siblings. Incest is too far. Stop yourself. STOP YOURSELF”

15. What quote has impacted you the most?

This is one quote that I think has calmed me a lot if I’m anxious and I think it’s helped me a bit:

I may not have gone where I intended to go,
but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

- Douglas Adams

However I think there are an awful lot of inspiring quotes out there and my quote for this week in an attempt to calm my nerves for results day on thursday is:

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent

ie. my grades will not change my self worth unless I let them :)

“All Zelda could do was stand and watch helplessly. She knew his reaction to this would be painful to witness, but she never would have guessed just how much.” 

Finally, I actually completed something that I’ve been wanting to do for years. I highly doubt this will be my last piece for Selphie Kinneas’ lovely Twilight Princess fic What Makes a Hero , but it’s definitely the one I’m most proud of. There was one, maybe a year ago now, but.. I’ve changed a lot in a year, and so has my art. The quote above is also from her wonderful fic. If you’re into LoZ, or even if you aren’t, I would recommend it to anyone. I know I love it.  

Toro Rosso F1 team more open since Verstappen left - Sainz

Carlos Sainz Jr believes Toro Rosso has become “more of a team” since Max Verstappen was promoted to Red Bull in Formula 1.

Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko said earlier this year that part of the reason for Verstappen swapping places with Daniil Kvyat was the “considerable unrest” at Toro Rosso.

When asked by Autosport if the dynamic had changed since being paired with Kvyat, Sainz said: “The only thing that has changed is I know Daniil a lot more from previous categories.

"I know how he works, how he acts, we know each other perfectly.

"With Max, it was a new team-mate for me from 2015 onwards.

"On the team dynamic, maybe everything is a bit more open, everyone started working a bit more together, maybe started working in more of a team.

"The separation was there but it is normal that it was there when you have two strong team-mates.”

Sainz, who maintains he had and still has a good relationship with Verstappen, admitted the Dutchman’s departure took the heat out of the situation but he added: “I was enjoying it.

"When you have two strong team-mates, there will always been some friction between the two drivers.

"It was not that I was not liking it. We had to deal with it but I didn’t see it as a bad situation.”

But Sainz does not believe Verstappen leaving the team had anything to do with his upturn in form.

“I know you could correlate it because in theory when he left my results started coming but honestly, it has nothing to do with it,” he said.

“If Max had been in the team for the last 10 races it wouldn’t have changed massively the results I have achieved recently.

"It’s just lately, nothing has happened to me and I have proved consistency.”

SAINZ LESS DISTRACTED NOW

Toro Rosso technical director James Key believes Sainz has been less distracted with beating his team-mate since Verstappen departed.

“He has come on really well this year,” Key told Autosport.

“He is a really good guy to work with anyway, he always has been.

"People in the team have huge respect for what he has done, even though it has been slightly under the radar for reasons we know.

"But that reason has moved on now and that allowed him to perhaps be slightly less distracted by beating his team-mate and more on beating the other guys on track as best as he can.

"He has been very focused recently, he’s matured a lot this year and he’s gained a lot of confidence in himself, so his approach to race weekends is more relaxed.

"It is a bit more like a guy who has been doing it for a long time rather than a rookie who wants to prove himself. He’s come on a long way.”

I still want to know what happened between the two sides of the garage and how did it escalate to the point where two engineers were fired…

i posted a pic of my new hair on ig and th is guy was like “do u play overwatch” and we started talking about how i look like zarya and eventually he commented about how zarya has a penis (and you know how on t trans mens clits grow bc of the testosterone.. apparently in the overwatch fanbase its a joke that since zarya has a lot of testosterone since shes a body builder she has “"grown a penis”???) and ya i said i liked the headcanon that zarya is a trans woman (because trans headcanons r Goode) and i said d.va is a trans girl and he said d.va is a “normal girl” uh,,ew anyway tje gamer community is horribly transphobic/transmisogynistic

“Why I think this video has viral SPARK." 

Sharing - Highly shareable- Lots of videos lately on how to protect electronics and this guy has a few but this one has huge views and I think it was his choice in what book to use.  Harry Potter fans are powerful.

Participate- Encourages participation- I think lots of people are braving these competition, but only the really brave. 

Authentic- It’s the real deal- This seems authentic as it is recorded well from several angles.  

Reach- How does it reach the masses- People like challenges and adding in Harry Potter book to the challenge was a good idea.  i also think people may see that he could be ruining a perfectly good expensive phone gives it some excitement.  It worked for me.

Kick- Whats the extra kick- The pitch for Harry Potter at the end gives it the kick and advertising built right into his video.  Good Move. 1,268,997 views can’t be wrong.
