Twice Knock Knock is beating Not Today in views:(

It’s really not something to be sad about. All groups try their best it’s expected. Twice fans are working hard too and it’s important to acknowledge that they do a good job too. That’s just how it is ^_^ The main goal of increasing youtube views is to help bangtan win music shows. Not really for beating records although of course, having records in itself is amazing but it’s not the main thing to focus on.

It’s better to focus on the good things and we’ve accomplished so much already with this YNWA album even with just four new songs. It’s really a lot of great accomplishments from Bangtan and ARMYs!!! Not to say that we should no longer work hard about increasing the MV views, because we should!!! But it’s important to note that it’s not solely about beating someone else.

how long did it take for you to find your art style?? i've been trying to find my own but it just won't work :((

aw man, I’m sorry that it isn’t working out for you yet! But I’m sure that it will come one day :) As for me, the way it happened: had an art style that was all over the place, or well, I didn’t even have 1 art style - it changed every time I was drawing something. Then I took a break for some months I think, and became inspired once again and decided to create this blog and fill it with art. (at that break period I was looking at a lot of art, and not necessarily like.. fanart, but also a lot of paintings, sculptures, and both classical & modern art. I also got inspired from looking at fashion journals and from being around the nature a lot, so the inspiration for your art style does not have to come from looking at other tumblr/dA artists). When I made my first drawing I really didn’t think about a certain “art style” - I just started drawing “naturally” and included my favourite elements from the things that inspired me (colour combinations from nature, clothing/colour schemes from fashion journals etc). It ended up looking pretty decent and I stuck to it for all of the drawings that came after that, with small variations and improvements there and there.

So yeah, maybe try to find your “natural” style first (with that I mean the way you naturally draw, without trying to emulate a certain style/without thinking too much about it)? I guess that every person has their own “natural” style that looks unique and different already. Then, you can look at art from different artists that you like and see if there are any elements that you particularly like. Try to not flat out copy that artist’s style, but perhaps integrate it into your own style and make it unique to you. And also as I said, things that aren’t directly related to art can help you a lot to find your style, so look for outside inspiration as well!! I wish you lots of luck pal!

Entitled fans everywhere...

No, you can’t know a celebrity just because you met them multiple times, made some selfie and get autographs… they’re still strangers, and will remain so, forever, unless you start working with them, or go out with them and really befriend them. Anything different is highly problematic and potentially dangerous. 

Goddamn TIRED of seeing all these skinny little trans boys getting worshipped when there’s trans men who don’t pass even if they’re on Testosterone

So cheers to the ones who aren’t the passable.

The ones where:
• you pass until you open your mouth and speak
• there is no hiding that chest
• there is no hiding that ass
• there is no hiding those hips
• you’re a butch lesbian on your best days
• you won’t pass until surgery
• your Google search history contains “get rid of curves”
• the extra weight doesn’t help you pass
• you think you’re unattractive man or woman
• cellulite
• the pear shaped bodies
• the hourglass shaped bodies
• you’re told that you were better as girl
• you were refused a hysterectomy because you might get pregnant
• your body type doesn’t exist on the internet
• the trans shoutout pages make you feel like complete shit
• you get mad at yourself that you hate the trans men that pass better than you or the ones that didn’t have to work for slender flat rectangle bodies
• you still get hit on and stared at
• the trans men of color
• the trans men of color who are white passing and therefore discredited
• your breast tissue causes back pain
• you don’t fit in any clothes… ever…
• the periods make you bedridden
• you’re stuck

Facts incoming, no trigger warnings added

“Being an otherkin is not scientifically recognized, so it’s bullshit. In fact, that would have landed you in an asylum not even 20 years ago. Until science recognizes all the stuff made up on this cesspool, I have every right to call bullshit.” If you think you are a cat, a dog, a dragon, or whatever else fictional you can come up with, you are MENTALLY ILL. This is everything BUT normal. Too, what’s up with the overly romanticized creatures? Seems to me like everyone is catkin, wolfkin, dragonkin, or whatever else. Where’s the barnaclekin at? The seaslugkin at? The pottedhouseplantkin at? While this was interesting to do research on, I’ve took a stance that you need HELP. Thinking you are a unicorn is not normal for a 31 year old who’s self diagnosed with PTSD, BD, schizophrenia, and whatever you can pull out of your ass. If you identify as a cat, dog, mouse, dragon, or whatever, please stay the fuck away from me. I don’t want you to feel compelled to smack me with your imaginary tail or hiss at me.

I will never get over this

(x) The subtlety and realness of this scene. That instinctual urge to protect. THAT’S JOHN. WHAT DID YOU DO TO MY JOHN

To all my writers out there, particularly fanfic writers because I am one and I’m feelin this hardcore

  • It’s okay that you haven’t written for a while, you can take breaks.
  • You can start writing again whenever you want, you don’t need an excuse.
  • If you would still like an excuse, here it is: I want you to start again, you should totally do it.
  • It’s ok if you’re out of practice, you’ll pick up traction again.
  • We’re all learners and its good to have role models, but try to be better than the writer were before, and try less to be ‘as good as’ someone else.
  • It’s alright to abandon a piece if you have no enthusiasm or passion left for it.
  • It’s okay to be needlessly dramatic.
  • It’s okay to be needlessly ridiculous.
  • Write the crackfic, write the rarepair, or write the popular pair. Write what you want to write.
  • Yes someone has probably written this scene before.
  • Write it anyway if you want to write it.
  • Yeah that trope has probably been done a million times.
  • Use it anyway if you want to use it.
  • Probably there are people who are tired of reading about that AU.
  • Write it anyway, they don’t have to read it.
  • Respect your audience, but don’t let other people dictate what you create.
  • Reblog your own work. Be proud of it. You deserve to pat yourself on the back.
  • I’m proud of you, you’re doing great.
  • Keep writing, keep making stuff. People will care. 
  • Future you will especially care.
