so, this is my 1,000th post, and i’m currently sitting at 337 followers, which i’m sure doesn’t sound like a lot when you compare the amount that a lot of people have, but i’ve only had padmé since january second of this year. that’s not even two full months, and somehow, still, over three hundred people have decided that my padmé is the kind of content they want to see. i’m still not sure why, but since i’ve hit such an amazing number and this is my 1,000th post, i wanted to do something nice for everyone and gush about how much i love you all. so without further ado, here’s my follow forever !!!
THE DELEGATION OF THE 2,000
@aftcrshocks / @icaryian / @imhiscarer : to the shock of absolutely no one, i’m gonna take this moment to yell about my favorite person on this earth, kells. kells is probably my most staunch supporter on this website and in life, and it’s really……awe-inspiring ?? it’s amazing to me, the kind of love that kells has to give to her friends, and the unbelievably selfless ways she continues to show it day in and day out. my entire aesthetic on this blog was crafted by her, and she’s always willing to do anything at the drop of a hat, which is just !!! so much !!! we don’t deserve kells. i don’t deserve kells. she’s so talented and she’s so supportive and kind and i’d take a bullet for that woman.
@jedibetrayer / @warcompass : in addition to being the best smad egg husband a senator could ask for, chloe is about 85% of the reason that this blog even exists, and i’ll always be forever grateful to her for that. her enthusiasm for star wars and for her muse is off the charts 100% of the time which is just A+ in my eyes. her writing is beautiful, her talent is off the fucking charts, and i just. straight up. adore that girl.
@kybercore : sen is one of my newer friends and i’m so grateful that padmé brought me this lady because honestly ??? idk how i lived without sen in my life before now ??? sen’s writing is so amazing and her characterization is so on point and she’s always making me question my life choices every time she brings up a plot idea, but in the best way possible. i love her a lot ok.
@demandpeace : haley is just….my salt sister. like a soul sister, only closer, because we get salty about the treatment of our fave ladies and it’s EXCELLENT. i love haley even when she’s using her perfect writing to stab me in the back with padtine feels and i love her for giving me the powerful sassy space nobility girlfriends that i deserve.
@masterofcraft / @triggrhappy : lillie was one of my first new friends on padmé and i’ll always be so glad and grateful for that. she’s been such a happy influence on my life since entering it, and has given me so many obidala feels it’s unreal. idk how i got to be so blessed but i’m so moved and grateful and never gonna stop being emo about it.
@coughbot / @crdered : MY SON. zach is my son whom i birthed and raised from infancy and is genuinely one of the sweetest and most talented souls i have ever ??? in my life ??? met ??? they write with the kind of elegance and cohesiveness that writers twice their age struggle with and i’m like. constantly amazed. also so fucking kind like call out post for zach for being TOO PURE.
@sempermemoriia / @penitenciia / @harlemforged : tj is pretty much my favorite of all time ??? tj is, first of all, unfairly fucking talented, and second of all, so thoughtful and observant and it’s kind of the best thing ever ??? i never have to worry that tj hasn’t read my rules or my headcanons because not only does he read all of them but also he incorporates them in everything he writes with me and honestly i love that man more than sharks love blood.
@rosecrime / @trustfunded / @redeemself : maddie aka my other best friend i’m so !!!! i love that girl !! i would die for her !! i’m so blessed to have so many talented friends in my life and i’m sure y’all are tired of hearing that word but EVERYONE !! IS SO TALENTED !! I’M SHOOK !! maddie is such a fucking powerhouse with her replies it leaves me shook all the time, and her characters are always so multi faceted and amazing. no one makes an oc like maddie, like you could throw an fc at her and she’d come up with a well rounded character in under an hour, i’m sure of it.
THE LOYALIST COMMITTEE
@tachiisms / @ofalderaan : liesl is hands down one of the kindest, if not The Kindest, person i have ever met on this godforsaken hellsite. i am like 100% sure she has done nothing wrong in her life, ever, and i am, frankly, in awe of her skill at writing and of the amount of positivity and love she graces my dash with on a daily basis. also her siri is so good i’m fucking Shook at all times.
@rebelsacrifice / @ofeffulgence : lyssa is so incredibly lovely it deadass amazes me all the time like what a machine with her replies ?? how do you do so many replies so fast ?? how are they all phenomenal ?? teach me ?? her characterization is always spot on and her replies are always so good and honestly I Die.
@rcbelborn / @eireniic : val pretty much constantly has me screaming, if i’m being entirely honest. i have never, in my entire life, looked at another writer on tumblr as ‘goals’ as much as i look at val as my life goal. her writing is so phenomenal and poetic and beautiful while still being coherent and concise and i stalk….everything….and it’s all amazing……i can’t believe this….
@scarificed / @warbones : i’m pretty convinced miriam is actually satan at this point and i’ve sold my soul to the devil or something but honestly if that means i get to read all of her stuff about oak and also padmé gets to kiss his face i’ll take it ?? i care so much about miriam’s oc’s and i can’t wait to read more of them tbh.
So I felt the need to make this post because I’ve been getting a lot of emails asking me for collabs but there are a lot of things that are a bit off in these emails so I wanted to clarify for yall how to ask someone for a collab.
1. BE PROFESSIONAL. NUMBER ONE RULE.
Write these emails like you’re writing a school email. I’m not super picky about formatting or “dear star” at the top or something, but you can’t send me an email that just says “u want to collab? I need voice for fandub” Or something like that. 100% of the time if you send me an email like this, I will not reply. I simply dont have time to email back and have an email chain figuring out what you mean. Try to use complete sentences, and spell words correctly. Also stay away from “u” and stuff like that, because it doesn’t look professional at all.
2. INCLUDE INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT
This is the biggest one I have an issue with. If you don’t have a previous channel or any other previous work, that’s completely fine. I am perfectly open to working with people who haven’t done anything online before. However, you need to show me something. A preview, a sample of the voice acting, a demo of the game, something like that. Also, include information about what you precisely would need from me. “I would like you to voice this character, in this particular voice, and here is a sample of the lines I would need.” is a good example. If you’re not set on the lines or what kind of voice you need that’s fine, I dont need something really specific, just a rough estimate or more information about the project.
3. IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO JOIN OUR CHANNEL AS A POSSIBLE VOICE ACTOR, SEND A DEMO REEL. IF YOU DO NOT INCLUDE A DEMO REEL IN THE ORIGINAL EMAIL, I WILL NOT RESPOND BECAUSE I SIMPLY DO NOT HAVE TIME.
I get about 4-5 emails daily asking if someone could join the channel as a possible voice actor. I’m completely open to adding people as possible voice actors, I’ve done it many times before, but you NEED to send me a demo reel if you’re looking to join or have an established channel or work that I can check out. It’s as simple as that. Remember, your voice is your trade. You need to showcase your trade.
4. DO NOT BE SELF-DEPRECATING IN THESE EMAILS.
Nothing makes me want to delete an email more than reading the words: Here’s my demo reel, it’s so bad don’t look at it. I’m not saying you should send me an email saying “I AM THE BEST VOICE ACTOR IN THE WORLD HIRE ME”, but try to remember that when you’re sending me a demo reel or something like that you’re sending me an audition. If you walked into any audition and told the director not to listen to you, they would send you out of the room. I’m going to do the same. You’re an actor, you’re selling yourself. A better way to word it if you’re not sure about your audition is to say: “I’m still working on it, could I get some constructive feedback?” That right there is WAY better than “this is so bad.” I know this is a weird thing to be picky about, but I get a lot of these types of emails and it weighs on me.
5. DONT SEND ME “CAN YOU CRITIQUE MY UNDERTALE AU?” just dont do it. I’d love to check out a comic or something, but I know nothing about creating AUs.
AND THATS IT! I know I was a little strict in this post, don’t let that stop you from sending me an email! I love what I do and I love meeting new people through the internet, I just felt the need to share with you guys the best way to send emails because then you have a better chance of getting in contact with me! Plus this is helpful for people who don’t really know how to send these types of emails, and don’t beat yourself up if you didn’t know. Also just because why not, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
like honest to god shut the fuck upppp... you were good when you posted userboxes but now your garbage personality is seeping in and it's all turned to shit... go back to not talking or fuck off please
i just got told to fuck off my own blog… like… my little shrimp…… the unfollow button is right there… if one of us is going to fuck off its not going to be me? i live here?
also ‘my garbage personality’… coming from someone whos being a mean nasty to someone on tumblr.com for not catering explicitly to them… someone on tumblr.com whos never said anything mean to u …. yet i am the garbage man… interesting…………
i just want season 3 to give me the good heartfelt klance content i keep longing for. like please…i want keith to comfort lance and tell him that he’s the heart of the team and that they could go nowhere without him and lance is on the verge of tears because his words do mean a lot.
“never think that you’re useless the team needs you, i need you” and keith freezes up instantly because he wasn’t supposed to spill his heart out like that yet, not in this tense situation where they’re still looking for shiro. but lance understands and just hugs him tightly as a way to say “thank you”
and before leaving his room keith tells him that tears don’t look good on his pretty face to cheer him up and see the reaction the usual lance would have to flirting because he loves seeing him happy
with riz ahmed and dev patel getting more attention, I just want to take a second to remind non south asian fandom bloggers to check yourselves when you’re speaking about them bc I’ve been seeing a lot of low key fetishizing and orientalist comments on their photos and it’s v uncomfortable like some of yall have never found a brown man attractive before and it’s v apparent in the things you say… so just a gentle reminder to be mindful about what you’re saying
some people love rob because of his personality. some say because they feel bad for all crap he endured through the show. some say because they’re glad the show have an antagonist
but you know why i love rob?
his post-void design
never in my life i saw a character as disfigured as rob does, and i give the TAWoG team a huge kudos for that
so let’s start off with his general design. before his disfiguration, rob was just a tall blue cyclops with a rather basic design. but post-disfiguration? he had changed a LOT. the thing that i like from his design is that he is completely isymmetrical, not even the hands and the legs are the same model!
let’s start off with his head. dude has a head of a misaglined hexagon (or an octagon?), and the design is, let’s just say really complicated, fanartists (me included) have difficulties drawing his head properly! his hair is separated into two hexagons and it’s disembodied from the head, but you can still tell that he has hair despite all that.
now into his body. i can assume that his clothes merged with his body when being disfigured, so there’s no sign of rob’s actual body there. like his head, it is isymmetrical and really complicated, and i love the detailing on it like a hole on his chest, his used-to-be backpack or the stripes on his used-to-be shorts (i think it’s a part of his hip now).
and speaking of details, can we just appreciate the details rob has, like the low-polygon textures on his right hand and foot, or his now-detailed left hand, which is apparently the only ‘organic’ bodypart rob have after his disfiguration, pink patches on his left leg, or his left foot which is now reduced into wireframes? the TAWoG team put a really good effort on those.
and let’s not forget his static patches. they’re really well animated, and still manages to look smooth even when rob moves. now that’s fine art right there.
to top it off, i really appreciate the effort TAWoG team put through to animate rob. when you think animating a 3D character is difficult, try animating rob while making his model glitch or spazz out every few frames AND animate his static patches. now that’s pure dedication right there.
long story short, rob’s post-void design is SPOT ON, and i love it.
i know there are a few people who don’t like rob, but i respect their opinion and as long as they don’t act like an asshole to everyone who likes rob, i’ll give ‘em a pass.
i’m just going to put this out here because it seems like people are upset about mark and high school rapper. to begin, please do not try to continue the drama mnet is trying to start with not only mark and hongwon. if you haven’t noticed, during hongwon’s performance they showed mark, and only mark a lot in the audience. and during mark’s performance they showed hongwon in the audience like 5 times. mnet is known to edit things just to start a bit of tension between people to bring in views and “oh there’s gonna be some drama”. this is very much shown when hongwon and mark were in the waiting room and mnet asked if anyone knows anyone and they only showed people saying “yang hongwon”, and they went on to ask if anyone knows young b (hongwon’s stage name), when mark didn’t react they purposefully asked “who doesn’t know him” just to single him out. they don’t know each other and there is nothing wrong with that. however, i doubt there is no one who didn’t know mark since when mark arrived, a bunch of people were staring at him. if no one knows him there’s no reason for people to be staring at him. and not to mention that a lot of people were talking about mark going there before this aired, and there were people who were there talking about him too (aka the people who told us he did well and was ranked 9th or something like that in the auditions). yes, they had the parts where they showed kids asking “there’s an idol rapper here? who?” but it’s because there’s already this stigma that idol rappers can’t be great, and mnet is just playing into that idea that idol rappers are nobodies. if they didn’t know there was an idol rapper there aka mark, then they’d just think he was a regular student and there’s no reason for them to stare at him. even when hongwon walked into the room, no one greeted him, i don’t expect mark to get special greetings and i don’t think he would want that either. the only other people i saw actually go up to hongwon and talk to him was his friends from the dickids squad. people who knew him, and a fan of him, didn’t go up to him either. hongwon/young b is very popular, even before being on high school rapper. he was on show me the money and got a lot of popularity because he got passes from all the judges. he even appeared on unpretty rapstar (idk exactly why). it’s kinda obvious that they will try to make something between the only(?) idol rapper and the most popular ‘underground’ rapper. just like how they are trying to make drama between hanhee and jieun which are the two most acknowledged girls
yes, mark has worked a shit ton from debut to now, but don’t expect him to get special treatment and people fawning at him left and right just because of it. he himself, even said he didn’t want to go there as nct’s mark, but as a regular student because he doesnt want any special treatment.
it’s not a show for mark alone, and the producers of the show are going to milk it for what it’s worth. they are going to present a bit of lies to you just to get a kick out of the show. there’s so many kids there, and only 1 hour for the show. its gonna be boring and they’re going to edit it to make it more interesting and worth watching. even before mark’s appearance on the show, they have a preview where the thumbnail is mark and hongwon, as if they’re going against each other in a rap battle when all they’re doing is rapping and being ranked.
please don’t continue the drama between mark and young b that mnet is trying to start.
I felt like my Anti edits have been a bit too static so I decided to change things up a bit. This is what Anti Angel was originally meant to be like. Thought it would be cool to show that opposite end to how that one edit could go. It’s always fun to make one edit and then make a continuation of it later on. I don’t know why it’s fun but it just is. At least, it is for me. I’m mainly just saying a bunch of random shit to draw out the text on this post. Because I’ve found that a lot of my edit posts do not visually look good when the text doesn’t take up a similar amount of space to the edit. Also, it sorta gives you a look into my personality. In a way.
I know a lot of people are excited about interacting with the new characters, but to me they all just seem so, as Peebee would say, "been-there-done-that". Vetra seems like a mix of Garrus and Nyreen, Liam is similar to Jacob, Cora is similar to Ashley, Drack is similar to Wrex, and Peebee is similar to Liara (with hints of Sera from DA:I). It's sad to say, but I'm more interested with interacting with the non-squad members (e.g., Kallo Jath, Dr. Lexi, etc.).
I’m excited about interacting with non-squadmates too (SLOANE!!!!) but I disagree with you .
Liara and Peebee are quite different. When we met Liara she was a young scientist who was very naive and hadn’t explored the galaxy a lot. Peebee is the opposite, she thinks she has seen it all and she is eager to move on. Liara wanted to be liked by the crew, Peebee seems to have a “whatever” attitude, meaning you like her or you don’t, it’s not her problem. Liara looked for answers that could explain her world and make it logical, Peebee is most intrigued by what is not that logical, strange, weird.
And we don’t know enough about Vetra to say she’s a mix of Garrus and Nyreen. I wouldn’t compare them just because they’re turians. Liam compared to Jacob, why? If anything I would compare him to Kaidan. Cora isn’t similar to Ashley at all. In looks, personality and history they’re nothing alike. You can argue that maybe Cora had issues with her family name like Ashley did but I don’t think so, she seemed to have quickly make a place for herself in the Alliance while Ashley struggled. If she hadn’t met Shepard, it’s likely she would still be in a low position despite being qualified to be a Spectre. Cora is a biotic, Ashley isn’t - they don’t have the same fighting style at all from what we’ve seen. Cora worked with asari commando, meaning she had to trust them because they’re deadly as a *team* and Ashley, I love her, was suspicious of aliens like the asari. It’s just not the same. Drack is not similar to Wrex. He’s way older than Wrex, and despite being older he has never been in a bigger leader position, he didn’t unite the clans and he actually left the galaxy with his clan to go to Andromeda. Wrex’s entire storyline was him going from losing hope in the krogan’s future to fight for it with all he’s got. He became a leader by sheer stubbornness and willingness to make compromises and work with other clans, acknowledging how beautiful and unique each clan is. It’s about the whole for Wrex.
Idk, I think it’s natural to compare. Obviously we loved the characters from the trilogy a lot and they became a reference. Character archetypes also exist for a good reason, but still. I disagree that’s all one and the same. Right now we don’t have enough information to say “oh okay, it’s basically Liara 2.0” or “look here’s Garrus!” I think they would want those new characters to be different too. For them as writers but also for the players. Let’s give them a chance?
the ones that fuck me up the most are the ones like “all thin ta.akos suck” or like “if your ta.ako is thin he’s bad”
and like, i get that sentiment, don’t get me wrong. as someone who used to be overweight, i totally get that type of sentiment, but as someone in professionally-led ED recovery being taught to try to think of all bodies as just bodies it’s really fucking jarring
so all i’m asking is for posts like that to be tagged with #weight? i feel like that’s not asking a lot but if it is lmk and i’ll try to figure something else out
Just popping in and interrupting everyone watching the peek on repeat for some quick notes. We are now getting close to the arc finale guys…like hours away!
As you have seen I’ve gotten a lot of asks this week, so much so its been a struggle to keep up with. With 15 promising to be crazy and the C Arc “Mindblowing” (I have NEVER seen the cast/crew so excited).
I love answering your asks and posting metas and theories But due to the sheer volume I receive I just need to make a couple of requests going into this crazy week.
Be prepared for hopefully one more peek and an article. They had a lot of press and the TCA’s while filming this episode.
Before sending and ask in, check my blog and see if I might have answered it already. After the episode airs watch for my post episode meta, that might also answer your ask.
Bear in mind I live out west so see the episode later than the East Coast and those who catch the Canada super early airing…please don’t message me with spoilers.
I tend to miss when I get tagged in a post and for that I sincerely apologize. If there is something you want me to see send me an Ask on it.
Please don’t send me an ask in order to get me to respond and post an “unpopular opinion” on a character or story.
As usual my meta will go up within a few hours of me seeing the episode. I will start into the Ask Box on Wednesday.
Those who follow the kiddo…
I will post her last minute predictions Tuesday Afternoon
I am also letting her to stay up that night so you won’t have to wait long for her reactions.
Yes, she is insanely excited and asked no less than 10 times today if there are more spoilers and 5 to Watch the Fitzsimmons Peek.
I will not be able to take fic prompts until at least a week into hiatus and even then it will be iffy if I can get to it.
As always I am incredibly humbled that you send me your asks and even want my opinion on things. I promise I’ll get to all of them but bear with me as I work through what will no doubt be a crazy finale!
i see a lot of posts about boys talking about how ‘boys are so rude’ and stuff like that and it just gets me down??? i know it’s normally about actual shitty guys who act like douchebags but,, as a trans boy??? makes me feel a bit invalid and sad like ‘if i identify as a boy are people going to find me rude?? am i automatically going to be a douche??’ idk i’m basically just talking out of my ass at this point but just,,, yikes,,,
I 100% get what you mean. As a trans guy it can be a bit disheartening seeing posts like that. I’m not sure if it will help you, but what i do is whenever I see posts like that read them as toxic masculinity posts. So instead of reading “boy are so rude” I’ll read “toxic men are so rude”
Being male is not inherently a bad thing, cis or trans. It’s the toxic masculinity that is bad, and unfortunately a lot of men/boys/masculine aligned people tend to fall into that (all because of the stereotypical “masculine” expectations for men in society). It’s problematic.
Just remember that you had no choice in being male. it’s who you are. What you do have a choice in is not falling into toxic masculinity. As a transguy you have some lived experiences of being perceived as female. Remember those experiences, and use your (eventual?? idk if you are being read as male yet???) male privilege to stand up for women and nb/women-aligned folks.
So I keep forgetting to post this but this blog hit 1000 followers a few days ago and I just want to say thank you all so much?? Like I started this blog bc I’m just a huge gay who wanted to see more sapphic taz stuff and I never expected it to get this big so??? Idk just thank you all a lot I love you guys

I love seeing ur post with Keith being on his period, because I'm questioning my gender and very seldomly get my period anymore due to an eating disorder I've had just over four years, and seeing healthy trans characters just? Means a lot? Like I hated my period until I stopped getting it and realized how unhealthy I was. I'm here for the happy, healthy trans characters
i’m so glad that it meant something positive for you!! i really hope you are able to recover, just take it one day at a time. questioning your gender is a big, scary concept to face, but try not to fret too much about it. just try to take care of yourself and everything else will come in time, okay?
when you feel bad just think about keith grabbin some space advil and punching bad galra robots JUST GETTIN SHIT DONE!! do your best, i have confidence in you!
I'm not the same anon from before but I've had some of the same problems in this fandom. I've found a few blogs that are good, post good content and are great people, but sooner or later I always stumble upon someone bad. Idk, could you maybe give a few blog recs? Like, I wanna follow more Batman/Rogues blogs, but I'm tired of looking through an entire blog to find out if they're homophobic/racist before I follow
askljhkghjhgds i’m so bad at blogrates i feel like i’m missing so many people so if i missed any of my mutuals/followers just know that i was trying to think of people who posts a lot of batman rogue content so nothing personal
if anybody here is uncomfortable with being rec’d let me know and i’ll take you off. also pls be aware some people have rules/byf so make sure you read them before you follow
How should a new artist on Tumblr get their art more recognized?
I think the main thing for getting recognized is exposure. It’s not that your art isn’t good enough, it’s just that not enough people are seeing it!
-I find drawing for fandoms guarantees more exposure. It’s like being a part of a community/ gallery.
-Tag your stuff? Some people actually overlook this. Your art is now in every tag you associate it with, tags that a lot of people are browsing!
-Original art is just a big hit or miss if you haven’t already established your name. The only way that seems to work is art that corresponds to some recent trend (memes/ events/ etc)
-Think about people on tumblr! Every website has a trend in what goes around fast. That’s why you could post a drawing to instagram and hit 10k but on tumblr it wouldn’t reach much of a number.
-Look through popular artists works. You’ll notice some obvious trends (especially in terms of aesthetics). Drew a trending character in a trending fandom, tweaked them up by adding a cute ponytail? Notes^2
These are a couple of things I’ve noticed while being here.
Of course, I could be completely wrong. Don’t give up your style or the things you enjoy drawing to follow trends! Sometimes you just need time and consistent art posts to gain steady recognition. :)
