i don't know what this is but i love you all

If you are any kind of artist

From music, to cooking, to making videos, to drawing.

YOU ARE WORTH YOUR TIME AND MONEY.
(Honestly, this applies to everyone, but I’m talking to artists at the moment)

I know it’s hard. I know some won’t agree to your prices. Some of you have “normal” jobs on top of your art time, some of you managed to make it full time. Some of you are hobbyist, some of you do it for a living.

Whatever you do, please, you are worth your time and money. No matter how good or bad you think you are, someone out there will admire you work, and if they want a commission, charge appropriately for your time.

So many of us are made to believe that this is not a real job, that this isn’t a viable career. I can officially tell you, it is. Both as a freelancer, working for a company, and more. It’s tough, it’s not easy, and you have to do a lot of research, doing your own bills, putting the time in, teaching yourself schedules, even learning bits of retail and other skills. 

But, it is a job. People need your work. From inspiration, to personal projects, to large projects for gaming companies, buildings, even food and industrial work. We THRIVE off of the arts. Both for entertainment and for daily life uses. Just because a project is not NEEDED and ENTERTAINMENT doesn’t mean that it isn’t still very INSPIRATIONAL and USEFUL to people. Our mentalities can’t live without a break, and having things such as a doodle to full movies and such help ease our minds and inspire us.

KEEP DOING IT. KEEP GOING.
Even if it means you have to have a “normal” job while doing your art. However it is you want to achieve your goals, I KNOW YOU CAN DO IT. DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO.

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Work hard, feed off of the hate and push to be better than ever. Keep moving. Even if it’s slow, keep moving. The more you keep walking, crawling, running, whatever pace… you are still LEARNING. You are still ACHIEVING, you are still DOING.

I love you all.
Keep it real, fam. Keep the peace. Keep the love.

All of you are amazing, from “normal” jobs to “real” jobs, artists to lawyers and more, it doesn’t matter. YOU ARE LIVING. You are doing what YOU need to do. 

One last piece, if you dislike someone else’s prices, work, or what they do. I am sorry that you have so much hate in your heart to take it apart to try to break someone else down. But you know, you matter too, and they are doing what they need to do in their life, just as much as you are. If you do not agree to it, walk away. Spilling hate onto others only makes your own dreams become even less obtainable. Believe in yourselves, believe in others.

Riverdale Episode 5 “Holy crap what is going on?”
  • There’s a set of parents crazier than the Coopers? No freaking way.
  • Oh nevermind, Betty’s dad has gone crazy and may have killed Jaon, false alarm people, the Coopers are still the wackiest of them all.
  • Veronica eating those fries and staring at Betty is so damn gay, like honestly are they trying to hide it?
  • Archie honey the only thing I care about in your story line is this Valerie girl.
  • But also Ronnie fixing him up was the cutest thing.
  • This episode is actually making me like Cheryl. Also I love this friendship between her and Ronnie.
  • This episode is also making me ship Bughead.
  • WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME RIVERDALE?!?!?! I SHIP EVERYTHING!!!!!
  • But seriously I cannot wait to meet Polly. That conversation between that old woman and Betty gave me chills.
  • Bring on next week (and a supposed Bughead kiss?).

OKAY BUT JUST FRIENDS THO!

Star Vs. The Forces of Evil has a lot of really stupid love triangles (says the ace-spec. person) and shit for some reason and I’m never going to get into any of that, but THIS EPISODE!
Like, everything was so sweet, Star hooked everyone up with tickets to Love Sentence because she wanted to include Jackie in their friend things, but with Jackie and Star hitting it off Marco starts feeling left out.
But another thing to that, I think Marco was actually genuinely afraid Star would steal Jackie away from him somehow. He was afraid that being next to Star, he would seem “less cool” and Jackie would ditch him. And there was this.

Yeah, that’s pretty clear.
But after they noticed, they all made up and everything was nice again, then there was this nice scene where Star and Marco were getting excited about one of their songs and had to remember Jackie was there, but Star didn’t mind and they all had fun!

LIKE, OKAY, THIS EPISODE MADE ME REALLY LIKE AND REALLY THINK THEY’RE GOING POLY WITH THIS! Or at the very least jealousy is being put aside and the love triangle was going to die and they would all be happy for each other and with each other, but this episode got me really hyped for the first one.

Aaaaaaaaand then…!

GROP DAMNIT!!!
Firstly, I’m glad she’s trying her best to be happy for Marco and Jackie and she really is trying to move on.
Secondly: POOR STAR!
Thirdly: THE LOVE TRIANGLE IS SO REAL IT HAS TO BE THE ILLUMINATI
Lastly: DAMNIT! THEY ALMOST HAD THE START OF A REALLY NICE HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP AND THAT WAS ALL JUST THROWN OUT THE WINDOW IN THE LAST MINUTE WHEN IT HAD BEEN BUILT UP THE ENTIRE REST OF THE EPISODE!

VeggieBants TM. He loves the kid really…  (probably…?)

Goten is always there though? This is even funnier when you remember Mount Paozu and Capsule Corp are on opposite sides of the planet. The kid has transcended his circadian rhythm. He’s gonna be a beast come finals week in college. There’ll be legends echoing through the ages of the all-nighter kid who didn’t need caffeine and could sleep on command like a study god

Hi I don't know if you do this or not but your blog is popular so i just wanted recommend the fic "Just to See You Again" by MellytheHun. I just read it for the fifth time and felt the need to share it with you and your followers. Warning it's a tear jerker ❤

hah! I was just telling her how awesome her fics are and here is more proof, @loserchildhotpants. - Anastasia

Just to See You Again by MellytheHun

(9/9 I 14,950 I Explicit I Sterek)

A sterek college!AU where writing student Stiles specializes in love letters, runs a blog about it and can be commissioned to write love letters on behalf of lovers who are at a loss for words.

He makes some cash, he’s good at what he does (especially when he gets to be a little more explicit in his letters), it pays for his textbooks and that’s all he’s really looking for and life is fine. That is, until someone anonymously commissions him to write a love letter to mathematics student, Derek Hale.

some of my favourite absolutely SICK facts about the trappist-1 exoplanets:
- theyre all very close to one another and to their star, so the length of a year on them varies from 1 to 20 DAYS
- since they’re so close, the star appears a lot bigger than our sun from earth, and from one planet you could easily see the rest, some would even appear bigger than the moon from earth. you could literally see the surface of another planet with the naked eye!!!
- they’re probably tidally locked to their star like our moon is locked to earth, meaning only one side of a planet ever faces the star, and on the other side it’s always night. the sun never sets or rises on any of the planets
- the star is red, so the sunlight is red/orange, meaning if, for example, plants were to grow there, they could be black
and that’s just what we know now, imagine how much cool stuff we have yet to discover about the trappist-1 system

                                there’s only one thing we all know for certain and that is …

TELL ME YOU LOVE ME

Love, and who knows it

Fundamental truths of Sherlock: Sherlock loves John, and John loves Sherlock. That is simply true, and there is no counter argument. You can (if you like) get into the finer details about what kind of love and what it means, what specific desires it implies, but the fact of it (love, mutual) is not in question. So, within this narrative so far, does John know that Sherlock loves him? 

Is there any possible way that he doesn’t already know this? 

John has learned a lot about Sherlock’s feelings in the last year or so. There was the whole faked death situation (not good), but since then, Sherlock has both inadvertently and deliberately articulated his feelings about John to John. 

When John asked Sherlock to be his best man, John got a look into Sherlock’s inner workings: for all his ego, Sherlock had no idea that he was John’s best friend. Would anyone guess that Sherlock Holmes required that kind of explicit conversation to understand the nature of his most critical relationship? So what did Sherlock think had been going on on this time, John must have asked himself. I’m not sure he’d come up with an easy answer.

You could comfortably say, because of that profound misunderstanding, that it would be difficult for John to be certain that Sherlock loves him.  John has a lot of questions about Sherlock (99% of which are about his sexuality and romantic inclinations) that Sherlock has never answered.

But then there was that speech Sherlock wrote and delivered. And it was pretty clear from his speech that John is the greatest thing Sherlock’s ever seen, greater, even than crime solving and drugs. Sherlock expressed his love for John in that speech, so much so that John and the entire audience had a cry. Is it a surprise to him at that point? I think it is. Is the surprise that Sherlock feels these things at all, or is it that he was (finally) willing to say so, and that he said so in front of an audience? Or all these of those things? In any case, there it is: Sherlock loves you, John.

If, by some chance, Sherlock’s speech failed to communicate to John that Sherlock loves him, Sherlock goes ahead and makes the point it a few more times.

John most definitely sees the look on Sherlock’s face at his reception, post pregnancy deduction. That is the face of a man with a broken heart. Is there any way John doesn’t know what he’s seeing? I don’t think there is. He ducks away from it. He jokes his way out of it, badly. If there’s one moment where John has to unequivocally confront Sherlock’s feelings about him, that had to be it. And Sherlock walks away alone.

Sure: Sherlock lies to John about his fake heterosexual relationship with Janine just to watch jealous steam rise out of his ears, but it’s possible John was in no state to process that little tidbit as the passive aggressive bullshit it is. And sure: Sherlock comes back to life for love of John. But John doesn’t know that, only we know that. Sherlock then risks his life again and ends up in an ambulance with a cardiac arrest so he can unmask Mary because John is in danger. But John doesn’t know exactly why Sherlock did that, either. John wasn’t in Sherlock’s mind palace with us, so he won’t know those details.

But Sherlock’s more overt emotional demonstrations continue. He throws his life away by putting a bullet in the head of the guy threatening John’s future. Oh, but that was for Mary, I hear you saying. Well, okay. That sounds fake, but okay, I’ll give you that. Even if you say that’s for Mary, there’s yet another moment that’s pretty undeniable.

What do you think John is expecting Sherlock to say on the tarmac? I don’t know if John’s ready to hear it, but do you think it’s possible that he isn’t expecting a love confession in that moment?

Sherlock hasn’t said so in those precise three words to John before, but I’m pretty sure John already knows that Sherlock loves him.

Just thought this would be useful to consider as context. Who knows what might happen next.

Wanna know what I absolutely love about our fandom right now?

All of a sudden everyone just agreed that Rosie and Sherlock take naps together in the couch. And that she sleeps better in Sherlock’s chest.

That Sherlock plays the violin for her when she has trouble sleeping.

That Sherlock calls John “your Daddy” when he is talking to Rosie. And that John sometimes just stands in the door and stares at them.

That Rosie’s favorite human being in all the world is Sherlock. And that he adores her even more.

I don’t know about you, guys, but I think that’s beautiful 💕

Sameen Shaw Appreciation Day

I loved how last month everyone got into paying tribute to ‘If-Then-Else’ with me so I thought I would give you all a heads up that I plan on doing something similar this coming Tuesday (February 21) to celebrate the anniversary of the first time our favorite compact Persian sociopath graced our screens. (‘Relevance’ aired on February 21, 2013)

I’ll be posting my favorite stills of Shaw all day as well as Shaw-centric posts on my other blog. I’d love to make a day of reveling in all her badass glory.

So dig up your favorite Shaw posts or make some new ones! 


It’s hammer time 🔨

multishipper problems: the final frontier

Voltron multishippers are so pure, so lovely. You took my trash post and its thrilling sequel and the unanimous response was that all of the ships were valid and that all of the characters could love each other. You restored my faith in the fandom, thank you
