Road Trip! with Tom Would Include

(A/N: Thank you Harrison for your Insta updates. This is everything I’ve ever wanted. Additional thank you’s to my group chat ladies for some of these ideas! ❤️)

-There were a couple times when you and Tom would drive with no destination and no plan

-Or, it would be the exact opposite. You and Tom would plan out exactly where you two would stop, where to eat, where to sleep, etc.

-Going to the store and getting all of the unhealthy snacks and candy (”Tom, are you sure you’re allowed to eat all of this?” “What do you mean? I can do whatever I want!” “Tom…”).

-Double checking everything before setting off (”You got gas in the car?” “Yes.” “Extra clothes?” “Yes.” “Your juice box?” “Seriously..” “What? You need your juice, it’s nothing to be ashamed of.”).

-Arguing about who would drive (”Tom, it’s 2017. You don’t have to be the one to drive.” “I know, I know. But I want to! I don’t mind, darling. If I get tired, I’ll let you know.”).

-Taking cute snaps of Tom while driving (much like the one above)

-Belting out your favorite playlist while driving down the highway with the windows down

-Introducing him to your guilty pleasure music (”Darling, you listen to this?” “Don’t make fun of me!”)

-Tom holding your hand and kissing it while one hand remains on the wheel

-Or, one hand placed on your thigh, while his thumb gently rubbed against your skin in circles 

-Playing entertaining car games to keep yourselves occupied (”Let’s play ‘How Many Stripper Billboards are on this Stretch of Road!’” “I’m at a disadvantage, love! I’m driving, I can’t take my eyes off the road.” “Sucks to suck!”).

-If you ever started to nod off, Tom would be the little asshole that he is and crank up the music or scream in order to wake you up (”Fuck off, Tom. I hate you so much.” “Darling, I was getting lonely without you.” “I still hate you.”). 

-Driving through the night and having deep, personal conversations 

-3 A.M. random diner-off-the-highway visits (”You hungry?” “Is that even a question?”).

-Road trips with Tom was, hands down, your favorite thing to do. You and him simply spending time with one another, enjoying time away from everything.

Hey Scout! Quick art question: I'm still a beginner, so I work entirely from reference photos. I mean ENTIRELY, like I gotta find the exact pose, etc. I want to draw. Did you ever do this? Does it get easier to break away from this after some practice? Thanks in advance! Your stuff is literally da best. :D

THIS IS FINE. i don’t know how the idea that reference photos are bad got so widely perpetrated within art communities, but damn. ey, working from reference is fine. the more you work from it, the more you understand how to do it free-hand.

what i think you should give a shot is mixing this need to do it, and the will to do work without the references. it’s a lot easier to have at least an idea of what you want to draw, especially if you don’t have access to any reference images.

trust me, every pro in the industry i know has a whole bucket of references in a tab of their browser or off to the side of a piece at least once a week. it’s impossible to have infinite knowledge for drawing All Things

i did start out with a lot more dependence on reference images than i have now, but if you start asking yourself how and why when drawing things, your brain will gradually start to understand and catalog the information!

Can I ask what you did when you were just starting out as an artist? I’m starting to take my art more seriously, drawing generally makes me happy / relieves stress, but I’m pretty unhappy with how most of it turns out right now. I’m not really sure how to practice. Do I draw shapes? Do I copy other comics? For portraits, do I try to replicate the same image multiple times or pick different ones? Any advice is greatly appreciated!! <3

i hear ya! when i started out, i did all of the things you mentioned here. i literally tried every method possible. once you start doing everything in your power to figure out the big secret to improvement, you will realize you have improved, even if it’s just a little bit. you’ll start to find why you enjoy the process in the first place.

try working with a bunch of different mediums. stuff you’ve never heard of. push yourself out of a comfort zone and try something you hadn’t considered. watch a bunch of artists creating things! nowadays, youtube is an absolute treasure trove of artists that are willing to show you how they do things, and when i started, that information was a lot more coveted. for instance, to help curate ideas for inktober, this is what my history looks like:

note that we are all constantly learning. you’re always seeing people at various stages of their journey, so make sure to remember that you’re only just now giving it a shot!

So I cannot make up characters physicalities at all ;___; what do you think would be best to start with???

First, I think it’s important to know that it doesn’t actually matter what your characters look like! You could go your whole story without mentioning their appearance and it wouldn’t be any different than if you did! However, it’s completely understandable to still want to develop their appearance! You could look up “faceclaims” (an actor/model/etc that you use to base your character’s appearance off of) If you’d like to avoid using well known actors and actresses, I would recommend using Lookbook, a website for fashion blogging which features a wide variety of individuals you can use to base your characters on!

If you’d rather keep it to your imagination, I’d recommend focusing on these things: special characteristics (freckles, moles, scars, birthmarks, tattoos, etc., as these will be the most unique identifiers), hair color/style, eye shape/color, skin tone, and body build. You can get into more details later on, but these cover your basics! If you’d like to know how to write the description, I’ve made a post about that here.

lets do aesthetics again.

what i need:

  • details about you
    • if you’re black/white/asian/etc.
    • hair color and eyes
    • gender/sex
    • sexuality
    • any specific beauty marks
    • anything about you
  • personality traits
    • loving, dog lover, materialistic
  • hobbies
    • dance, guaitiar, baking, etc.
  • things you like
    • puppies, food, reading
  • theme
    • autumn, royal, winter, etc.
  • your @ so i can tag you
  • the boy/girl you want

things to keep in mind:

  • it needs to be long. take up the whole space
  • if you send doubles, tell me who you are.
  • i have shit wifi, they wont be posted asap.
  • i might not do everyone or take them all
  • keep it within the spider-man/marvel universe pls.

Hi. I want to be an interpreter for the deaf. People keep telling me that when I go into a deaf school they won't except me because I'm hearing. I have selective mutism but apparently that doesn't count. But I don't understand. Every deaf person I have ever met has been so sweet and caring. So I can't tell if I'm being lied to.

Hi! Go follow your dream to become an interpreter! We do have interpreters who have some hearing loss, interpreters who are blind, etc. etc. There’s always a way around to do things. 

I’m not sure what you mean by “go into a deaf school”? You mean visiting deaf school? That should not be an issue. We welcome signing students and interpreters. Of course there’ll be always mean deaf people (as with ANY groups of people, mean people are everywhere), but most of us are very happy when hearing people are learning signs and/or want to become interpreters.

hey! so i'm going to amsterdam next weekend and i'm so excited!! i was wondering if you have tips on what to do there? also good places to eat/visit/hang out etc. thank you and i love your blog xoxo

ooe nice!!! i mean right now i will probably just give the best tourist things that you cannot miss because you’re only here for the weekend! and the nice thing of amsterdam is that it’s not that big so you can walk most of it or you can take the tram! 

- You can visit the Anne Frank house, it’s really impressive / important (but REALLY popular so you might want to already buy your tickets beforehand)
-  One of the most beautiful and biggest museums in Amsterdam is the “Rijksmuseum” which has famous paintings like The Night Watch by Rembrandt. The Van Gogh museum is really close to it which is also really popular.
- For shopping if you’re looking for the “popular shops” you should just go to the “Nieuwedijk” and “Kalverstraat” which is basically one long ass street (also very crowded) 
- if you wanna do something cute you can also go to “artis” which is a zoo :)
- AND WHERE YOU SHOULD EAT: “ De drie Graefjes” is an american bakery and you can also lunch there and it’s REALLY good and so nice and not expensive at all. you should check their site out. It’s basically behind the “kalverstraat”.

Nova is testing me so badly the past week-ish. He’s crying in the kennel again despite having gotten everything he could possibly need (go outside, water and food, play time, lots of safe toys in the kennel) AUGH I think he’s just seeing what he’s able to get away with but it’s getting to me bc I’m scared of getting a noise complain but if I let him out when he cries he’s just gonna get what he wants so I have no choice but to wait it out. I’m sure he will get past it like he did before and this is a “hm I wonder what I can do and get away with” thing but I’m dying.

Other than that? He’s been great. Walking great, playing with Sadie, listens to commands, etc. I’m just a really massive ball of anxiety lately so the crying is making me really nervous x____x

Hey. If you don't mind, what's Astronomy as a class like? I saw that you were taking a class in it and since it's going to be time for me to start deciding what I want to do with my life, I thought I'd ask.

astronomy is pretty fun, there’s a bit of math involved, and it’s a pretty cool subject, i’d give it a try if you are interested, the professor kinda makes or breaks the class, and my professor for the class is alright, a lil boring sometimes but yeah.

you get to lear about stars and how our planets move and etc.

I hate that i cant apologize to people without feeling annoying and manipulative or obsessive. Like, I know what i did was not okay or i know that they're stressed and im not helping, etc, but i cant say anything without feeling like im guilt tripping them or something and it drives me insane because i just want to apologize :•(

Try and plan out an apology. Start with “I want to apologise, but i understand if now isn’t the best time. I can wait for whenever you’re ready.” When you do apologise, just be straight forward, and avoid any excuses. Simply stating what you did, how it effected them, and that it was wrong is enough. Say that you take responsibility and want to make it up to them. If you just do it like this, there won’t be any guilt tripping

anonymous asked:

Is it weird that I, a person who doesn't ship v/min romantically (I do acknowledge that they are the superior bond in bts like that's just straight up facts) get lowkey offended when I see some y/m and v/k shippers call their otps "soulmates"? like I know I'm probably being petty as hell but like v/min are self claimed soulmates & the universe knows that. This may sound hypocritical but i can see why some jikook shippers call them soulmates tho coz busan their interests &their matching moles etc

i mean, people are allowed to call their ship what they want, there’s nothing wrong with that. like, as a v/min appreciator, i do get bitter because v/min are real life soulmates (and i understand ji/kook because they have lots of things in common that are stereotypically like soulmate things (ie. brothers that are each other’s ages, brothers both ending with ‘hyun’, matching moles, both from busan, and just general things like that) but i mean there’s nothing wrong with them thinking their ships are soulmates

I think all content creators can relate to this.

In my opinion, I don’t think followers really understand how much your requests/likes/reblogs/etc. and random asks mean to me. It’s just so refreshing and nice to know that people enjoy what I’m doing and support me.

People that go the extra mile and send an ask or message letting me know they liked my stuff honestly makes my day. I love reading tags and stuff…it’s honestly so cute….

And people who ask about how I’m doing or send me random questions or cute asks….I just want you guys to know it honestly makes my day. I just love all the interaction and such. It makes running a blog so much more enjoyable.

And Fanart/Fanwork? Honestly that’s one of the greatest things to receive. To everyone that draws or writes, please don’t feel too insecure to send it end! No one is going to criticize you over quality. It’s so sweet that you even thought about making something…I will always appreciate it no matter what, and I’m sure all other content creators feel the same.

So, in conclusion, don’t be afraid to talk to your favorite blogs and show them some love, guys! We always appreciate it! ☺️

hello i want to point out a funny thing in separation arc

so in these panels

i’ve seen it translated as this:

they did a p damn good job, but missed one thing by simplifying what reigen says in the panel where he looks all distraught and dramatic with his hand on his face.

what he says in there, if translated more literally, is…

ohhh the gall! they DARE to smear ME with this bullshit setup, this handsome, gentle me who is letting everyone and anyone rely on himself!" “SHIT…”

but the next second in the next panel he has righted himself and looks calm, and says:

"but even saying that, no matter how much gossip management i do, if i’m doing it alone it’s just wasted effort.”

and yes, the “but even saying that” lampshades what he just said as something ridiculous. so basically the feeling is…

“they DARE insinuate that? at this gorgeous face!? lol but seriously tho i might be as well yelling shit like that, nothing is working.”

makes you think about reigen’s self-awareness and sense of self-worth and confidence, doesn’t it.

okay so I’ve been thinking about this a lot, but do you think Jin goes out and buys all his own materials for the heart events, surely not right? Doesn’t have the time, doesn’t want to be spotted etc. What if he has his own assistant who’s sole responsibility as Jin’s art and craft advisor is to help him buy supplies for his heart events.

some poor sap probably excited to work @ bighit and then management is like
>lmao jokes you’re jin’s arts and crafts whore now
>btw he needs 7 feet of red craft paper
>good luck

I don’t wanna say “fuck customers”, because I understand why people do the thing I’m complaining about… but really, it’s annoying to see people purposely misplace “gendered” items, ie boys clothes hanging up in front of the girls clothes.

So, I get the message. People want boys’ science-y shirts (or sport themed, etc) for girls, vice verse. Personally I don’t have a problem with that. If I see a boys’ shirt that doesn’t have something similar for girls, I just buy the boys’ shirt for my daughter. My issue is what I feel is ignorance towards the employees you’re creating more, and mostly unnecessary, work for.

These people think they’re sending a message straight to corporate. Managers, and their bosses above them, aren’t gonna get this message. The message they’ll get is that their employees “aren’t doing their jobs.” This could result in negative consequences (harsh store meetings, hours cut, raises withheld, etc) for employees, because hey that’s retail.

The most effective thing you could do is contact corporate directly. Post on their social media, visit their website and click on that “Contact Us” link. I feel these aforementioned techniques work because a lot of stores will listen and work toward catering to this clientele (like Bullseye removing gender signs for their toy section, the Place for Children playing up the brains instead of beauty message for girls, etc).

Don’t be the type of person who misplaces stuff on purpose because you think you’re sending a message. 😓 I get what you’re trying to do, but it affects sales associates - not corporate.

My dear lgbt+ kids, 

Tumblr is full of people who want to be good people. They want to fight hate. They don’t want to be problematic in any way. And that’s great! 

Just sometimes, sadly, trying very hard to not be problematic is..well, problematic in itself. 

Our focus should not be on being visibly great people. A certain desire for other people to see how great we are is natural and human. (It’s even beneficial as seeing someone being a kind person will inspire more people to be kind!)

It starts to turn ugly when being kind is not about kindness at all anymore and only about other people seeing how much better! kinder! purer! they are than anyone else. 

You’ll come across those people in lgbt+ spaces (especially online) a lot. 

They are the ones who send you messages accusing you of being homophobic because you reblogged a “Boys deserve positivity, too” post and didn’t specify you only meant gay boys because obviously saying something positive about straight boys is offensive and problematic and awful and oh my gosh, why do you hate gay boys?? You should be ashamed of yourself! 

(Sadly, how much nonsense their accusations are is not always as obvious as in this slightly exaggerated example.) 

It often seems like they actually do not care about making the world a better place. They just want to look better than the world. 

Of course it is easy to get sucked into that when you just start out with your (lgbt+) activism. The thought “I am a good person” feels rewarding and we human beings thrive with rewards. I can’t really blame them for their desire to attack everyone and everything that could potentially be problematic  - but I do want to point out that blindly attacking each other will never save the world. 

And I want to give you, especially when you are young and/or new to lgbt+ (online) spaces a piece of advice: Not every accusation is worth a reply. If someone calls you out, think about what they said and your own behavior, do apologize and change (your choice of words etc) if necessary - but keep in mind that sometimes it’ll be necessary and sometimes it won’t. Sometimes the accusation will be completely baseless, random or a misunderstanding on their part. If you feel like the person just wants to start a fight, the best reply is silence. 

Online discussions can be great. Most online fights are not worth your time. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 


So, I thought to myself… What if Sherlock and John make TIME’s “most influential” list?

And then, as always, I got a bit carried away.

Above is the cover and article, as well as a bonus cover for another article/issue. 

I’m not going to write “The Final Problem,” but my thinking is that after everything happens with Moriarty and Mary etc. (a.k.a. I have my own thoughts about it that aren’t what we were shown in series 4), John writes an article like a blog post but publishes it as a TIME exclusive in January. He and Sherlock both decide the public deserves the truth, and neither of them wants to do interviews or entrust the story to anyone else. So John just sets the record straight once and for all, and that’s the cover of the issue. Oh, and Kitty Riley edits it… because her false stories about Sherlock catapulted her to fame, and they figure it’s only fitting that she help tell their truths–and she’s willing.

In my head, that article is a few pages and would be laid out with documents, footage stills, etc., so I don’t foresee myself writing or creating it anytime soon. But if I get hit with enough inspiration, perhaps I shall give it a go.

The AO3 link below includes the above graphics, the accompanying fic, Mycroft’s article typed out within it for easier reading, and a blog post by John in both graphic and textual form.

Enjoy :)
