They met up over winter break.

Kei’s trying his best to school a face of indifference but he can’t because Kuroo’s here and Kuroo’s standing right next to me and Kuroo’s taking a selfie with me and Kuroo and Kuroo and

I apologize for the delay! I started this about two weeks ago, but then I suddenly got really, really into needle knitting and neglected to work on it (I am currently donning my freshly knit teal garter-stitch scarf I named Orange. I am content and currently in the middle of a cream-coloured mistake-stitch scarf (◡‿◡✿)). 

I drew this in celebration of my city finally getting some epic snowfall. I’m so excited for the holidays!

I used FireAlpaca to make this! Thank you to the anon who recommended this software to me ( ˘ ³˘)♥, I quite like it.

Thank you reading and uh, looking at my drawing teehee

  • a self-proclaimed china prince who’s brimming with over-confidence and charisma.
  • he’d take one look into the mirror and flips his brown fringe from his eyes and he’s already like, “i’m so beautiful that even aphrodite will be so jealous of me.”
  • and other times, he’s like, “how can i pull off these clothes so well? they look so expensive since i’m wearing them.”
  • and looking at fashion magazines like, “i’ve probably walked out from these magazines.”
  • yEAP.
  • though he may look like all he cares about are his face and hair and clothes and basically HIMSELF,,
  • but really, he is actually very compassionate and loving.
  • especially when it comes to you, his dear girlfriend whom he loves so dearly.
  • like he’d love you so much that most of the time, he forgets to love himself.
  • “gongzhu, i plucked some pretty flowers on the way here. they reminded of you, so here you go, beautiful.” he’d grin while handing you these beautiful yellow flowers that you didn’t even know of.
  • awed, you take the flowers from him with a touched smile, “oh, jun. you didn’t have to — wait, whAT HAPPENED TO YOUR HANDS?”
  • apparently, the guy got himself injured while trying to pluck the flowers off and now he has small cuts all over his palms.
  • and you’re like freaking out because jun literally cares about his well-being because quotes him, “i need to stay beautiful and flawless so the world could appreciate this art.”
  • “junhui, you’re hurt! why didn’t you say anything?!” you exclaim, holding his hands to examine the flaws that are now etched on his palms.
  • and jun just has this gentle, reassuring smile on his face as he says, “i’d go through sharp thorns and vines to make you happy, gongzhu.”
  • and you’d end having to treat this selfless boy before class starts.
  • “you know that i meant it when i said i’d go through anything for your happiness, right?”
  • “jun, value your safety before my happiness, pLS.”
  • “i can’t. i just love you too much.”
  • “well, try loving me less, maybe?”
  • “but that’s impossible.”
  • (-_- )
  • only god knows just how huge jun’s love for you is. and it’s not like you don’t appreciate his feelings, it’s just because of his love to you that he couldn’t take care of himself well.
  • like also this one time when he walks you home in the rain with his umbrella held over you only and he ends up drenched from head to toe.
  • “i can’t let you be wet, gongzhu.”
  • “oh, god. not again.”
  • and the next day, as you expect, he’s down with the cold and couldn’t get off the bed without having to complain of his bad headache or his sore throat.
  • but he couldn’t help but to imprint this huge, happy beam on his face when you come visiting his room with a sigh released.
  • “i told you to share the umbrella with me. but you never listened.”
  • “gONGZHU!” literally throws himself all over you.
  • and again, you’d wind up having to take care of this guy again.
  • like when you’re feeding him his porridge, he’s smiling like an idiot and says, “have i ever told you how lucky i am to have you?”
  • “for like a millionth time, yes. sIGHS. but you should learn to set yourself as a priority instead of me, jun. because you keep on taking care of me first, you always end up getting hurt.”
  • “are you worried for me, gongzhu?”
  • “yES, YOU IDIOt!”
  • “oh, gongzhu. i love you so much. i’m sorry for making you worried.”
  • “you should be POUTS.”
  • “… i think i have recovered by the sight of that adorable pout.”
  • not only you who is well-aware of jun’s priority of you. even his friends are worried by how much he pampered you like a queen.
  • chan: “junnie hyung, y/n noona has hands. she can feed herself.”
  • you: “i couldn’t agree more…”
  • jun: “but i want to feed you. say ahhh.”
  • you: щ(ಠ益ಠщ)
  • jun likes bringing you to his apartment just to cook for you some traditional chinese cuisine and hopefully waiting for your reaction as you eat.
  • “it’s delicious, jun. thank you.”
  • “… come again?”
  • loves having you in his bed — not to do anything nasty nOPE. he just likes having you next to him so he can be as close to you as possible and watching you sleep.
  • like he LOVES watching you sleep.
  • at one time, he snaps a photo of you asleep and posts it on sns like, “she’s so beautiful ♥ i am the luckiest man alive.”
  • seungcheol comments: “what happens to posting your selfies and claiming yourself as beautiful?”
  • hoshi: “guys… i think he’s falling way too deeeeeeeep.”

  • and you did.
  • “trust me, gongzhu. you’re still beautiful to me.” (✿◠‿◠)
  • but the picture has already been viewed by the whole school and everyone’s just like, “THIS COUPLE IS GOALS!”
  • and you’re like, “no. stop. please. take down the picture.”
  • make-out session with jun can be described with one word: FIYAHHHHH.
  • being a passionate person in everything he does, he’s even more passionate when it comes to kissing you.
  • like he rarely gives any room for you two to breathe. he just wants to feel the pressure of your lips on his longer while he cradles your face like some valuable vase.
  • and it’s just so hot and furious when kissing with jun.
  • but v v pleasurable wink wonk.
  • loves it when you wear his clothes like he always think you look adorable and small in his sweaters.
  • and he just couldn’t stop hugging you because of how cute you look.
  • and you’re like, “jun, i need to use the toilet. jun, let me go now. wEN JUNHUI.”
  • and cuddling with jun be like,

An Important Post

Ok I’ve been wanting to talk about this for a while and something’s finally given me reason to so here we go, buckle up kids.

The accent market has gone to shit. There, I said it. 

The “5-10 print customs” thing is crap. Limited run/retiring accents are one thing, but honestly with most of these it’s just an expensive circlejerk status symbol. “Look how many customs from ____ I have! I will trade them but only for other 5-10 print customs so I feel exclusive!”

It leads to people taking advantage of artists, which is shitty. It’s bad enough that a lot of the time accent artists don’t see half the profit their works earn on the secondary market. It’s stagnated the market; good luck trying to find stuff for less common breeds or that isn’t the same boring #aesthetic. Personally, I feel like exclusive customs should stay as either 1-2 prints, or come with some sort of no-resale rider. If you change your mind and want to resell it one day, I mean, fine, but don’t take that as a chance to make an extra 10kg because you’ve got another status symbol to pawn. 

I have heard of accent artists having a commissioner auction a custom and then splitting the profits. And that’s cool. I like that trend. I don’t blame artists for wanting to make customs. They tend to be one of the few things on FR that command a fair price for the time investment. But when it gets to the point that people aren’t buying regular-run accents, but will fall over themselves fighting for custom slots, there’s a problem. 

And don’t get me started on the entitlement I see sometimes. Artists are not obligated to make customs for you, and they’re certainly not obligated to put in a ton of work in for you to take your extra copies and make a ton of money off them.

Stop being shitty to artists. Stop trying to take advantage of custom makers. You know who you are, and I know who you are, the same little circle of users with too much real cash to spend on a dragon game, and yet still you feel the need to be greedy. 

Yes, a lot of this is stemming from a series of incidents with a single person, but I’m vagueing about it because someone involved wants to stay out of drama. If I know you and you are that thirsty for details, I will discuss privately. 

TL;DR the accent market needs to stop doing what it’s doing. 

a update on my little Suzuya collection xD (x)

if anyone wants to know where i got certain ones from feel free to ask <3 some were from yahoo auctions though but not all of them xP ill get alternative links :)

Looking High Dollar on a Low Budget

When you’re new as a Sugar Baby it can be really hard to find your first Daddy, this lifestyle has a steep learning curve. On top of that, when you’re trying to attract money you have to look the part. A girl who looks broke is going to stay broke. Since I have a lot of unused cosmetology training I thought I’d compile a few of my best low budget beauty tips so you can look like the expensive, luxury woman of his dreams.

There are three things that will cheapen any look immediately, no matter how much you actually spent on it. Bad eyebrows, cheap or unkempt nails and skin or hair that’s in poor condition. Keep those three in check and your entire ensemble will seem so much more put together.

Bad Eyebrows

Ooooohhhhhhh boy. There are all kinds of bad eyebrows. The good news is that there are also all kinds of good eyebrows and maintaining them can be super cheap!

So, for the majority of people your eyebrows should enhance your face but not take center stage. That doesn’t hold true for every look but if you’ve got one of those looks that can rock some outlandish eyebrows I’m going to assume you’re an eyebrow goddess and don’t need my advice anyway. For us mere mortals we’re going to aim for a solidly middle ground, they should be groomed but not overdone.

A few things to avoid: 

Over plucking eyebrows. Razor thin eyebrows don’t usually look natural and can draw a lot of attention to themselves. 

Under plucking eyebrows. Take care of those strays! Try not to let those bad boys get too crazy.

Overdrawn eyebrows. Avoid super sharp lines and block-filled eyebrows.

You want to aim for a natural brow shape that flatters your face. There tons of tutorials floating around on the subject so if you’re new to maintaining your eyebrows I suggest looking up some videos on grooming and shaping.

Now, if you’ve got awesome, thick brows to begin with you may not need to fill them but otherwise filling them correctly can really polish off your makeup. Like I said, avoid drawing hard, dark lines when you’re filling your eyebrows. If you don’t have the extra funds for eyebrow pencils you can just use a small brush and some eyeshadow for fill. Try to use a matte color that is a shade or two lighter than your natural hair color, you’re aiming for fullness not darkening. 

And remember, your eyebrows are sisters, not twins. You want them to look similar but do not expect them to be a mirror image of each other. You’ll drive yourself nuts.

Cheap Looking Nails

People see your hands a lot. Every time you shake hands, gesture while speaking, use a fork, touch someone, etc. your hands are in the spotlight. Keeping them looking pristine is one of the BEST ways to make yourself look pulled together. If you don’t have the cash or inclination to get your nails done professionally it’s entirely possible to give yourself an expensive looking mani pedi.

First things first, avoid touching your cuticles unless you know what you’re doing. You can get infections that way and that’s definitely not nice looking. The majority of men will never ever notice your cuticles.

Pay attention to the length and shape of your nails. Don’t let them get too long and don’t trim them extra short. If you like longer nails I’d suggest filing them into an almond shape, here’s handy tutorial for how to do that yourself. If you favor shorter nails give the squoval shape a try, which is basically just flat across the top with nice rounded edges. Here’s how to do that. Obviously you also want to avoid hangnails, ragged edges and such.

I would suggest always going with painted nails. Unless you want to take the time to buff your nails or just have crazy gorgeous nails naturally a few coats of polish just looks nice. The best color choice is going to vary a lot from person to person based on style and skin tone. If you’re really unsure, sheer nudes, reds and pinks are pretty safe for everyone. I like to pick colors based on my wardrobes color pallete. As an example, my wardrobe is black, cream and grey with cobalt and rose gold as accents, I do my nails in cobalt or a sheer pearl color most of the time. If you rock a certain color all over your wardrobe, absolutely incorporate that into your polish choice!

Chipped, cracked polish does not do you any favors. Cheap polish or laziness are often the culprit here and the solution to both is the same. It’s totally fine to cut costs on your color polish. It’s fine. It may be harder to apply but if you’re careful you can make it look good. The one thing that will take make that cheap polish work for you is a really good top coat. If you’ve only got a bit of money to spread around, cut corners everywhere but the top coat, you want to splurge for that. A quality top coat will do beautiful things to the gloss, smoothness and longevity of your nail polish. I personally like Revlon’s Extra Life No Chip Top Coat.

Hair and Skin Ills

Ok, this is a huge topic and I definitely can’t cover everything here. My #1 budget hair and skin solution is coconut oil. I use that shit for everything.

Chemical or heat damaged hair? Dry, frizzy hair? Comb some coconut oil through it, toss a towel on your pillow and sleep on it. Wash it out in the morning and enjoy your shiny, soft hair.

Dry skin? Massage coconut oil into your skin before you hop in the shower. The warmth will encourage your skin to soak it up and you won’t feel greasy when you get out.

Part of my daily beauty routine is a facial massage, it encourages blood flow and lymph movement and helps keep the skin glowing, acne free and keeps wrinkling at bay. I take a dab of coconut oil and spend about two minutes massaging it in small circles all over my face, afterward I wash my face as normal and go about my routine. This is also an excellent way to remove your makeup!

It can also be used for cuticle care, oil pulling, as under eye cream and probably lots of other things.

I see a lot of people suggesting exfoliation to keep your skin soft and while that’s fantastic on occasion you don’t want to overdo it! Exfoliating too often or too vigorously damages the skin. Staying hydrated, avoiding sun damage, and moisturizing are much more vital to your daily beauty routine and skin health. Exfoliate about once a week and avoid sugar or salt scrubs, they’re too harsh and cause abrasions that can lead to infections.

The final trick that I’m going to suggest for hair and skin needs sucks. It really does but it works so well. Cold showers are AMAZING for your skin and hair. Dousing yourself in cold water for a minute or two at the end of your shower does a few things. It will close the the cuticle of your hair, leading to less frizz and more shine. It will also stimulate the blood and lymph fluid to move away from your skin toward your organs in order to retain heat. This is great because more lymph and blood circulation means more cell turnover, healthier skin, improved immune response and can actually stimulate changes in body composition by signaling to your body that you need more brown fat (the good stuff) rather than white fat (the harmful stuff). Not only that but cold showers have been shown to help alleviate depression, improve stress responses, help with insomnia, improve mental alertness, aid in digestion and tons of other things. Basically it’s torture and it’s so fucking good for you. Yes, I do in fact use this tip. Every day.

Edit: I forgot to mention, a cold shower will also make your boobs perkier by tightening the skin and increasing collagen production. 

Anyway, I definitely had more to add to this in the makeup department especially but this post has gotten crazy long so I’ll be splitting that into another post. I hope you guys find some of this helpful, feel free to add your own tips and have fun making yourselves look extra fine.
