huh wonder why

Bruh another thing that really really gets me about su is the designs.

Like. You’d think?? With a concept of ‘personified alien rocks’ they’d come up with something cool and representative of the rock right?

Like how the HELL do you look at this 

and get this???

I understand! That it’s a cartoon! I understand! Somethings need to be simplified!

But that’s no excuse when it comes to little things like markings, colors that are easy on the eyes, general pallets and other details that don’t even require that much complexity.

Oh Sherlock, you show off.

ok this is a fail comic. why? because upon finishing up (it’s not completely done haha ;-;) I realized that these aren’t visually funny (darn). But I thought I’d post it anyway 8n8 cause it would be a waste if i didn’t. Damn BGs im eternally bad at them *shakes fist*.

Pen Pals

Pairing: Dean Winchester x Reader

Summary: The Reader takes up a Pen Pals writing program at her school, and soon finds herself falling for the military man who’s been sending her letters. What happens when she graduates? Will the letters still come after, or is she just a random person who was strung along just to blow off some steam via words? 

Word Count: 1.7kish

Warnings: AU, Fluff, Light Cursing

Author’s Note: Heyy my loves! This is my entry for @revwinchester‘s Birthday Challenge. I got the prompt “Soldier” with Dean (obviously). This was meant to be a one shot, but then I thought, why not make the other half in Dean’s POV? It’s only fair, right? Second part will come next weekend. And the third the following weekend. I really hope you guys like this! Feedback is definitely welcomed!!

*Part Two*



Chapter One: First Letters

Pen Pal - a person with whom one becomes friendly by exchanging letters, especially someone in a foreign country whom one has never met.


I never thought I’d be the one to do these kinds of things. When I signed up for it at the beginning of freshman year in high school, people thought I was insane. They didn’t think I was going to go through with it, you see.

Here’s to the people suffering from conditions that primarily affect women and people designated female at birth. There probably could have been a cure or more effective and humane treatment discovered 80 years ago, but sexism happened and people threw up their hands and said “what do  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.”

Keep fighting the good fight for awareness and recognition. Your struggle matters and is deserving of more than a brush-off of “that’s how life is.”

omg this one is so fucking cute. send in requests here if you have some :)

Shawn wipes sweat off his brow and heavily exhales as he leans against the kitchen counter. A sea of unpacked, half-packed, and untouched cardboard boxes are scattered across the dusty, geometric tile, and his mood plummets when he remembers how much is still left in the living room. Moving in is one of those things you can’t see the other side of– it’s an endless task, and Shawn is about to hang the towel on it.

Today’s been rough. The two of you have been hauling up boxes, unpacking them, and organizing things in your New York apartment for the past six hours, and you gave up about 30 minutes ago. You’re lying, starfished, across one of the few rugs you’d unpacked. The setting sun casts planes across your body and is orange on the stretch of skin from where your sports bra stops and to where the band of your leggings starts. You look very pretty like that, Shawn thinks, tilting his head and admiring your soft, sleepy features. You look very pretty but you also look a bit uncomfortable lying on the floor.

“Hey baby,” he whispers, crouching down beside you and brushing stray hairs out of your face. You stir and turn away from him. “No, no,” he laughs, “don’t do that. We’ve gotta figure out where we’re sleeping tonight.”

anonymous asked:

I'm making some changes to my paracosm, and I decided to make magic a larger "thing" in it. How much magic do you think is *too* much? I'm thinking about magic influencing the land that people inhabit, and magic influencing people's lives. Now, everything would have a plausible explanation (magic in my paracosm has a set of rules), but I'm afraid to fall into the "deus ex machina" territory. When should we stop using the "It's magic!" explanation for improbable stuff?

Werew:

There is no such thing as too much or too little magic. 

When creating a world, incorporate as much or as little magic as you want. It’s yours, and you can do anything with it! And in fact, magic is a fantastic explanation if you want improbable things to be a part of life in your world. 

The only thing you need to do when working with heavy-magic worlds is make sure to have internal consistency, and make sure to make it all make sense (if your world is one where things make sense. Sometimes it’s best to just handwave things, and preposterous stories can be a lot of fun! It’s mostly stylistic choice at that point). You mentioned that everything follows a set of rules, so it sounds like you’re well down this path already. 

A few things to avoid so that your magic-heavy world will not annoy your readers: 

Follow Your Rules. If something always happens a certain way, do not deviate from that rule unless you have a legitimate explanation for why it can do so. Stories that focus on a breaking of an established rule can be really neat, and breaking your own rules can be fun, but you have to explain why. If, in your world, someone can use fire or water magic but never both, and then a character shows up who does, you need to have an explanation behind that (this can vary; supernatural forces, rare and not-well-known circumstances, misunderstanding of the rule by the general public, etc, as long as the explanation is there).

Don’t Make it Convenient. If the magic in your world solves everyone’s problems and never causes more problems, it will be boring. If magic is powerful, think about what kind of social implications it might have, especially if not everyone has access to it equally. If you implement magic in a way that solves one problem, try to at least give it the potential to cause other ones. 

Also, if you need something to happen for plot reasons (someone needs to die, a battle needs to be lost, an event must play out without intervention) and it is possible for that event to be stopped or changed with magic, make sure you have a reason that it didn’t get changed. It drives me up the wall when powerful characters don’t use their powers at crucial moments for no apparent reason, and everything gets screwed up as a result. If your character can see through walls, there’s no reason for her to peek around a door and get spotted by the bad guy. However, this is not to say that events like this cannot happen! Maybe the character who can see through walls is being pursued by someone who can sense her magic if she uses it, so it’s actually less risky to try to peek around the door. Alternate explanations can be fun, and they won’t irritate your readers like it will if someone conveniently forgets to use their magic. 

Make it Part of Life. If you’re going to have the land and the lives of people influenced by magic, make this influence show up in a lot of little ways, and try to make it a dynamic aspect of the world, instead of leaving it static. What if there is a magically very fertile land, but in order for it to remain fertile, certain trees have to be left untouched? What if everyone knows that, but then lightning strikes one of them and it dies? 

If a mountain is held up by magic, is it safe to dig a tunnel through it, or will that disrupt the magic? 

If someone who would otherwise die is kept alive by magic, how does that change their life? Did the magic simply fix whatever was wrong with their body that would have killed them? Do they have to be sustained by an object, and if that object is damaged they die? Are they magically tied to the person who may have saved their life? 


constablewrites: 

I think the most important way to stop magic from killing all your tension is to make sure the magic has a cost. Perhaps it’s unpredictable and the characters can’t really rely on it. A character who must cast spells using their own blood can only do so much before needing to rest; one who burns their own lifeforce and shortens their lifespan with every spell they cast will likely come to prefer not casting spells at all unless they have no other options. Spell components can be expensive, rare, obnoxious, etc. It could be that everyone learns a few basic spells and cantrips the same way they learn reading and math, but any significant power requires extensive study and training, an inborn talent, something like that.

Games are actually a great place to look at this. Video games, tabletop RPGs, even some board games–if there’s magic in play, they have to find ways to balance it and keep a character from being too broken and being able to run roughshod over any obstacle in the way. Cooldowns, mana costs, skill trees that cut off certain options depending on which path you take, physical components that get degraded or destroyed with use: all of these are ways to keep the magic users from being able to do whatever they want whenever they want. In fiction these things might not be quite as clearly quantified, but you can still use the concepts (like a sorcerer might not have a defined number of spell slots, but their spells become less effective or even stop working entirely if they push themselves too hard).


Bina: 

Personally, my line for “too much” magic in writing happens when: a) it takes such a long time to explain the function/purpose/execution of the magic that it distracts from the scene/plot/narrative (UNLESS some magical execution happens to be part of the scene/plot/narrative) b) it involves memorizing too many vocab words/rules/quirks of operation to stay on track with the world c) so much gets hand-waved away (author assumes the reader will excuse and accept things as ‘magic,’ and/or that explaining the rules somehow makes it less 'magical’) that you’re left wondering “huh? wait, why did that happen/how was that possible? Magic, I guess…” d) there’s a mostly-magical solution for almost every conceivable problem except the cliche basics, like “can’t force people to fall in love,” or “can’t bring back the dead” (which, imo, are pretty weak constraints by themselves. Like the genie from Aladdin, he’s so powerful except for those things. Materialize an army? Make you improbably rich? Done! BUT they include the bonus restraint of “you only have three wishes” as a much better balance to the magic system).

I guess I can summarize that as “don’t let magic itself steal the spotlight away from more important things, but don’t let it be a mystery either.”

Tell us...what's the petty thing for your painting

Oh ahaha it’s so stupid but it deals with my birthday and the chinese calender.
When i was super little i was told that my chinese calender year’s animal or whatever was the golden dragon (i was born in January 2000) and that was really important to me for some reason? I tended to use it as a base for developing who i was (subconsciously of course lol i was hardly aware i was doing that at the time) so i identified really really strongly with it and it became a quiet yet LARGE part of who i was (and am still lol)
Basically though around last year or maybe two years ago i found out that i wasn’t a golden dragon! I was born too early in the year so according to the calender i’ve been a rabbit this entire time!!!
I brushed it off but internally it was a tremendous shake to who i thought i was! I felt like a lot of my life had been a lie (obviously it isnt even close to that level of severity but i tend to dramatize things a LOT especially internal things lmfao) Eventually i realized like.. it doesn’t really mean anything but i am still slightly shaken by it LMFAO.
basically the painting is a representation of like “Um this isn’t me i’m still this thing i’ve deeply identified with and ingrained into my personality for all of my life” It’s stupid but i thought it would be fun to paint lol.
Also the sun in the background is supposed to allude to an event that occurred on my birthday in 2014. There was some sort of like.. idk some kind of fire or forest fire or something (it was really rwally large but thankfully i was at a safe distance from it) and there was an enormous trail of smoke that went across the sky (not covering it but still thick.) It covered the sun and gave the illusion that the sun was red!! I don’t know the science behind it but it struck me as being so funny (not in a “haha” way but like a “Huh i wonder why this happened on my birthday of all days” sort of way). Of course i fully understand it was a coincidence but i still feel it’s special in its own weird way.
BUT YEAH that’s the meaning behind it LOL

@akira-of-the-twilight replied to your post “Your Tsum art is cute (^-^) But how about Bucky & Tony’s reactions to…”

The cute reason tsum Bucky bites Bucky: tsum bucky wants to get to tsum tony. The angsty reason: bucky is filled with so much self loathing even his tsum counterpart hates him. D: Noooo!

Omg, Akira!! Only you could make tsum tsums angsty hahaha

I do like both scenarios, though… imagine…

Scenario 1: Matchmaking tsum tsums

[ watching the tsums panic at being separated ]

Tony: They’re pretty attached to each other, huh?

Bucky: Yeah, I wonder why…?

Tony & Bucky: [ avoids looking at the other ] …. 

Scenario ???:

Tsum Bucky: Release me, inferior version!

Yesterday I was introduced to an adorable vlogging couple, and a recent video of their’s was a rather interesting event. Then I was prompted to turn it into a CC ficlet. Fluff. Attempted humor. ~2,100 words.

Darren instinctively pulled his hands away, as his laptop screen suddenly slammed shut.

“Chris, what the fuck?”

“You need a break,” Chris stated, without missing a beat.

Anon: Have you seen the video from their recent fanmeeting in Japan where Jimin rested his head on Yoongi’s shoulder and a wild Jeonlous suddenly popped out of nowhere? Because I was like, damn Jungkook, relax! LOL

I have not. Somebody please send me this video, I want to see it! I’ll return the favor somehow (compilation, short drabble/head canon of your choice..).

Anon: Hello :) In another answer you commented about how kook/min got to the point they make others uncomfortable, can you show us some examples? And also what do you think other members think about the way Jungkook speaks to Jimin? Do you believe they would allowed Jungkook to speak to them the same way?

By them, I meant mostly me/other Kook/min fans since they really do act like they’re in what we call the “ssome” phase of a relationship. (Ssome is short for “there is something between us/them.” It’s that weird tension filled situation between two people who are on the verge of dating.)

As for examples within BTS, the closest thing that I can recall off the top of my head is Tae quietly commenting that Jimin may have a thing for men in this radio segment (around the 15 second mark) when the host asked why Jimin liked Jungkook so much. The best part? Jimin’s savage “I don’t like you though.” (Oh Taehyung..what did you expect..)

I think the rest of the members are absolutely fine with Jungkook’s behavior toward Jimin. So, just to explain.. In a relationship like theirs, it’s ultimately up to Jimin to either allow or reject JK’s behavior, even if it is Jungkook who’s always pushing the social barriers between them. After seeing them talk in private, the way Jimin just naturally allows Jungkook to do it, I can see that he’s totally fine with it. And this is important because if he’s fine with it, then the rest of the hyungs will allow it.

In real life, if I see one of my hubaes talking informally to my peer or dongsaeng, I might be a little uncomfortable but will generally let it be if my friend is okay with it. I, or another person, will only interfere and try to “fix” the situation if the hubae goes over the top with it in public. That’s just tacky, rude, and rarely happens. And I’ve never seen JK push it too far on camera, at least nothing that would make the other hyungs irritated. He’s bold but not stupid.

There are some members who I could see tolerating JK speaking to them like he does with Jimin (Taehyung, probably. Seokjin, sometimes if he wants to be like the cool mom today. Yoongi, hell no). But I don’t know for sure since I’ve never seen video evidence of them doing it in private.

Anon: i’ve been going through EVERYTHING om your blog and your dedication to kook/min is so awesome. i’m pretty sure you’ve answered this before but how big is kook/min in korea as compared to the other ships? i feel as if internationally v/////kook and yoon//////min is more popular but how does kookmin fare in their home country? also you said that jungkook excitedly said his fave number was 13 when jimin said his was 3 when was this??? thats so cute TT

Thanks, Anon! I don’t know how this blog became the way it did.. just kidding, I totally do: my obsession grew out of control.

Anyway, yes! I answered your first question here and here.

And I remember seeing it in another place, but I could only find this video:

Translation:

JM: I like the number three a lot.

JK: I-I like 13!
