i don't know why i'm still trying


Except for the first one - that I decided to post in a single canvas now -, here are some new sketches of Auror!Potter that I did - because I’m still inspired and when I’m inspired, I can’t stop. Dark and angst, just how I like him. This time, full body and sillhouettes too.

[More sketches]


So consider this.

The first of my weird little ideas I’m trying out. I had said I would try pendulums in the past but I actually decided to go all the way and make a unique little mold for it. Something more angular and pointed screams “pendulum” to me than my gently tapered herbal molds.

This is just the prototype using a tiny Yarrow sprig. I’m working on a couple more using whatever sprigs of Mugwort I still have remaining from the summer - an herb highly associated with divination and clarity.

I’m thinking of trying to find something like a bead cap for the top, or even a fitted little bit of metal, if that’s possible.

So what do you think?


still trying to break in this t-t-t-tablet so here are some morioh sketches!

R.I.P. Keith
  • Lance: Hey mullet, what's up?
  • Keith: um... *looks up* the ceiling.
  • Lance: *laughs softly* Yep, I know that.
  • Keith: Well, why did you ask? Are you trying to confuse me or something!?
  • Lance: What? Keith chill! I meant what's going on! What's up is the same as What do you need or how are you!
  • Keith: Oh...Um, I'm sad and have major trust issues and at the moment I can only really talk to you because Allura still secretly hates me, I don't really know Hunk, Pidge, or Coran too well, and I don't feel safe around Shiro. How are you?
  • Lance: *hugs fiercely*

Tedros understood that the battle between Sophie and Agatha was significant. He understood that this wasn’t his story and that it was theirs instead. He could accept that Agatha had struggled between what was Good and what felt right. He had felt a similar struggle, and at the end had been able to choose something that felt both right and Good: Agatha.

He hadn’t been joking with her when he said that physical cues were helpful. They had certainly had a history of miscommunication and he admitted that most of it was his fault. Still, though, she chose to stay with him and care for him. She chose to love him, and Tedros had never felt so thankful to have another human being’s affection in his whole life. The new struggle was articulation, non-verbal or otherwise, and this struggle was one that Tedros felt particularly in the weeks leading up to his princess’ birthday.

I’m genuinely surprised at the lack of Internet based AUs on this site so I came up with some

  • ‘so you’re the asshole that took my username’ AU
  • 'your URL is really similar to my friend’s and I accidentally messaged you’ AU
  • 'whoops that was supposed to be on anon’ AU
  • 'my self-esteem is shit right now and I noticed you just went through my entire face tag, tell me I’m pretty’ AU

Did someone say more flower crowns? Probably not but here you go anyway.

Historia has her Kink, Sasha of course knows things, and Mikasa has her moment.
  • Historia: Do you think Ymir thinks about things?
  • Mikasa: ...what things?
  • Historia: Ya know...things.
  • Mikasa: His', can you clarify for me please?
  • Historia: Uh, ya know like why the sky is blue or why they call the darkest reaches of the ocean the abyss or--
  • Sasha: She wants to know if Ymir ever thinks about getting choked by Historia as much as she thinks about doing it to Ymir.
  • Historia: ...
  • Mikasa: ...
  • Sasha: ....
  • Mikasa: I don't hear you denying this His'.
  • Historia: I'm uh...I'm trying to grasp how Sasha knew that?
  • Sasha: We room together, I hear things when I go off on my nightly snack raids. You won't believe half the things I hear coming from Annie and Mina's room.
  • Mikasa: That's all fine and dandy, babe. I'm still trying to wrap my mind around Historia wanting to choke Ymir, why would she do that? What's Ymir done to deserve that His'?
  • Sasha: Oh, my sweet loving scarf child.
  • Historia: Seriously?
  • Mikasa: What? I'm concerned here, why would you---
  • Sasha: Babe, honey, abs that have me drooling. Think bedroom activity.
  • Mikasa: Oh. OH! Oh, okay. Yeah she definitely does.
  • Tony: Is the Earth really any better than when the Avengers first formed? Okay, so we battle evil. But we don't really win. The bad just keeps coming back. And getting stronger.
  • Steve: Tony, you know there's still things I'm trying to figure out. There's a lot I don't understand. But I do know it's important to keep fighting.
  • Tony: But we never—
  • Steve: We never win.
  • Tony: Not completely.
  • Steve: Never will. That's not why we fight. We do it because there’s things worth fighting for.

Thoughts after rewatching Octavia’s 4x04 “death” scene:

1) what was the point

2) imagine ever forgiving Echo for this lol Bellamy and I can’t relate

3) why didn’t she stay dead? Would have been more interesting than Octavia’s s5 Sexy Murder Arc

4) Roan is honestly so done w Echo for killing O it’s hilarious/relatable Bellamy x Roan brotp lives

5) Bob…just…… Bob

6) they stole that resurrection scene from Aragon and 100% the heir of Isildur wore it Better

7) what was the point

  • Valkyrie Cain: Are we close to the airport?
  • Skulduggery Pleasant: Airport?
  • Valkyrie: Sorry, airstrip. The landing thing. Runway. Whatever.
  • Skulduggery: Ah, I'm afraid we won't be landing. This is a round trip for the pilots, no rest stops in between.
  • Valkyrie: We're going to parachute out? Oh my Go, I've always wanted to try that!
  • Skulduggery: Parachutes. Yeah, they'd probably have been a good idea.
  • Valkyrie: We don't have parachutes?
  • Skulduggery: Why would we need them?
  • Valkyrie: Because... we're jumping out of a plane.
  • Skulduggery: You jump out of your bedroom window all the time.
  • Valkyrie: That's a little different, Skulduggery. My bedroom window isn't thirty thousand feet off the ground.
  • Skulduggery: But you still use the air to slow your descent, yes? So do the same here. I don't know what you're worried about.
  • Valkyrie: I'm not worried about the jumping. I'm worried about the falling. I'm worried about the splatting.
  • Skulduggery: You amuse me.

Have you ever been discouraged by your art? I try and push myself for Egotober. Do different ideas, try different styles and projects and think it's going well, but lately I don't know why, but I feel like no one actually likes my newer works. Have any advice for a struggling artist wanting to improve? Hope I'm not bothering you. I appreciate any advice for helping me get better. You have a good day friend.💙❤️💚

Oh man, I totally get that all the time (even right now!) I myself still don’t know how to help pick myself up other than taking a short break. Do what relaxes you, whatever rests your mind and things you generally enjoy doing outside of your creative zone; sports, video games, tv, what be it, try taking short breaks to recollect yourself and your head, it’s never ever a bad thing! I know you’ll get through it on whatever you decide to pull through this time, you’ve got this! I hope I could help a bit somehow D: ❤️
