Familiar Faces || Thomas and _____

Thomas looked around his old office with a small smile. It had been months since he had been in this building and he could feel that things were different.  Things were different with him and he knew that things were different with Thornewood. He didn’t have time to say goodbyes when he left, opportunity struck and he needed to leave quickly. He hadn’t seen anyone yet but he knew that he would start seeing familiar faces in minutes. He smirked as he heard a knock on his door and turned around. “Hello?”

IT IS TIME!

In celebration of my gathering 1 K followers (though I now have over 1,100), I had the idea to hold a contest in which my friends and followers would choose their favorite Frozen analyses that I have written. Originally, I was going to wait until I got 100 analyses, but then I changed my mind, seeing that I would have to wait even longer to hold the contest, and I didn’t want to rush into doing ten more so fast.

So I now have 90 analyses in total, and here is how this contest will work: each one has been placed in a category that I think best fits them based on their content. There is a total of fourteen categories with a minimum of four and a maximum of nine. Participants must choose one analysis they like best from each individual category, so your total number of choices will add up to fourteen.

Here are the selections of analyses and their categories:

Themes

Symbolisms/Interpretations

Words and Phrases

Headcanons

Opinions

Deleted Scenes

Elsa and Anna

Anna and Love

Elsa

Kristoff

Hans’s Villainy

All/Other Characters

Pairings

Kristanna Pairing

If you want to enter the contest:

  • You must be a fan of Frozen
  • You must be following me
  • You must reblog this post (not just like it)
  • You must be nice and polite; I do not want bad language on my analyses

Prizes will include:

  • A follow back from me if not already
  • A name tag in the announcement of results and winners
  • A name tag in an honorary mention of the analyses with the most votes
  • My eternal friendship ;)
  • A new Frozen analysis request

Now based on how many analyses I have, it is definitely possible that I will choose more than one winner. When results come in, I am thinking of listing the five that were voted the most, and maybe five or ten people who had chosen the top five winners.

In order to make your votes, your must either tell me your selections by commenting on this post or send me a private message.

Official starting date is December 14th, and the deadline will be on January 31st, so you have plenty of time, especially during Christmas vacation, to participate and make your choices. So remember to have fun, and in the meantime…Merry early Christmas, everyone!

Thanks to my best friend Stephanie (letitgoleviosa) for making the promotional picture for this announcement!

We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea. That which passes into everything is one thing. It’s a dream already ended. There’s nothing to be afraid of and nothing to be glad about. I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space. Do you think the emptiness of space will ever crumble away? Mountains will crumble, but the emptiness of space, which is the one universal essence of mind, the vast awakenerhood, empty and awake, will never crumble away because it was never born.

NEW GIF LIMITS ON TUMBLR!

Hey everyone!

I’ve not been around as much lately since I’ve been working on non-Daily Doodle type dealios (news on that stuff as it comes), but but but I’ve learned that Tumblr has recently improved their size and frame limits for GIFs!

To those who don’t post their own GIFs, this won’t mean much (except you’ll have nicer posts to reblog), but to those of us who make and post our own stuff, this is great news.  

The old limit (in my experience, and I think others might have gotten other results) is that a GIF had to be under 1MB and under 30 frames long if the image is 500 pixels wide (that’s the width of the Tumblr Dashboard).  If you posted it smaller than 500 pixels wide, you could have more frames and a bigger file size, I believe, but then the image quality suffered.

Now, in my experiments with the new size limits, you can post a GIF up to 2MB big, and as many as 90(!) frames long.  You may even be able to do more frames as long as the file size is under 2mb; this is just what I’ve tried and been able to get to load.  

Over time, I will likely re-upload and replace some of my older GIFs now that I can add more frames to them!  So as I rerun older posts, you might notice that the animation is smoother or the picture quality is higher (I already loaded up one today).

(Since my GIFs are actually converted video clips that I create, I can just take the original video clip I have saved and re-convert it into a nicer GIF that fits under the new Tumblr GIF limits, so I’m not actually redoing the entire GIF or anything)

Sorry for the boring post talking about file sizes and GIFs and crap!!  Hope everyone is doing well and all of your favourite shows renewed and your enemy’s last dying thought to be that they were never loved and never mattered.

EDIT: I’ve been told that Tumblr’s “Help” section says the size limit is 1.75MB, but I’ve uploaded GIFs larger than that (1.98MB) at the maximum pixel width (500 pixels), so maybe the 1.75MB limit is a loose guideline to shoot for.

Love,
