i don't like this very much but i had fun doing it

Sword Oratoria

So awhile back I picked up the first volume of the Danmachi spinoff LN in a buy two get one free sale thinking that it was a manga. I was initially disappointed because I didn’t really want a LN at the time, but since I bought it I figured I might as well go ahead and read it. 

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. It’s certainly not the pinnacle of fantasy writing, but I was engaged in the story and wanted to know what was going to happen next. I appreciate that in the spinoff it focuses on Aiz and her familia doing badass things in the dungeon rather than Bell being a newb and getting stronger. Aiz is already basically a god among men, and it lets the story go somewhere different than the original. 

While the writing is for the most part fairly simple (though I suspect this is partly because of it being translated and also that LNs are typically aimed at a younger audience and tend to not use a lot of advanced Kanji, which probably translates to the somewhat punctual and simple sentences that LN translations seem to have) the author has a real knack for describing large scale tactical battles. Sure Aiz is pretty OP and well wreck things, but in the really lower levels of the dungeon if they don’t work together and have a strong battle plan they’re just gonna die. 

I also appreciate that in the LN the world is fleshed out a lot more. World building is one of my favorite things in a show or book, and the Danmachi anime didn’t go into too much depth about the various things. The LN goes into much much more depth about how all the systems work, the various familia, cool little things about the world and so on. Also the dungeon is just fucking cool. Each floor can be completely unique, with almost no restrictions placed on what it has to look like or be which leaves the author with incredible freedom to dream up the wildest floors they possibly want. 

I wasn’t really expecting to enjoy this book very much, but it’s a solid fun read. Something like a 6-7/10 if I’m going to give it numbers. If you liked Danmachi at all, or sort of liked it but wanted a different view of the world this is a nice book to pick up. Only the first volume has been officially translated, but they seem to be coming out with new official translations every couple months. I’m sure there are fan translations floating around too, but I haven’t looked for them. 

So ya, fun book. There is an anime adaption scheduled sometime this year too. I think next season, but maybe the one after. That should be fun. 

I agree this scene was heartbreaking on so many levels. It was heartbreaking for Sherlock realizing how very strong John felt, it was heartbreaking for the fact that Sherlock was even willing to pop in and offer to help with the baby at all only to be turned away, and it was heartbreaking that Molly had to be the one to do it. Honestly, this is one of the first times that we’ve seen a moment like this with Molly and Sherlock. Not that it was ultimately her doing, but it was a rare moment where Molly made Sherlock truly sad and it was just painful to watch, partly because she hated every second of it.

*sigh* I feel like there’s some opportunities to turn some of the things in this ep into something shippy, but I honestly don’t feel like it. I know it’s silly, seeing as she’s a fictional character, but it’s like I can’t get into any of that stuff with Mary having just died. Like, it almost feels disrespectful to take this episode and turn it into something super fluffy and happy. I absolutely know it’s not disrespectful in reality, so don’t anybody get offended! It’s totally fine if any writers want to do that and it helps them move forward. I’m just saying that for me personally I’ll need a bit of time.

Sorry, I know that was totally off topic from your ask, anon. I just started thinking and it came out in the post lol. Anyway, thanks for sending this and you have a nice day too! ;)

It makes me very very sad to see all the new top fans that are coming in and beginning to treat Tyler and josh much like directioners treated the members of one direction. They’re so young that I think they don’t really grasp the concept that they’re not untouchable. The stuff we say and do affects them Ya know? Like It’s NOT ok to grope them it’s NOT ok to fetishize them it’s NOT ok to think of them as gods because they’re human. Just like us and they need good honest support that doesn’t include “lick me Tyler!!!!!” Or some other sick comment on a platform that’s public where they could easily see it. The disconnect that I’m seeing with the influx of younger fans feels like it’s starting to affect the band. let’s just stop with this bs and go back to supporting each other like it was supposed to be. They need to be respected again.

A Little Heart-to-Heart

So…this is something I’ve wanted to do for a little while now. This is based on @atomi-cat‘s Boneheads AU. It’s one of my favorite AUs of all time and I always get so excited when I see she’s drawn more of them. Everyone should check it out if you love skeletons.

Ironically enough, this is a follow up to her Follow Up comic :P

I’m sorry if this isn’t perfect, or it goes against the AU in any way, but this is just a little thank you to Atomi for all the fun her art and comics bring to me. Thank you Atomi, and I hope you like this :>

kk, but that Keith solo fic was awesome? Like it's probably one of my favorite smut fics now and could only be better if Shiro was directly involved. Don't let the jerks get to you. As long as everything is properly tagged there's no reason for them to get upset. And I'm pretty sure death threats might be against Tumblr policy so if they're not on anon you could probably report them or at least block them. Anyway, you're writing is awesome and don't let anyone make you think otherwise!! <3

Nawww dahling you are amazing and kind??? And yeah dude I was super excited for that prompt mostly because implications. Futuristic sex toys for the win. Solo action for the win. Keith imagining whoever he damn well pleases thank you very much. It was just a fun time all around.

Honestly, I’ve hit that point where I’m just becoming more and more salty haha. I have been in fandom a Long Time. LONG TIME. I was around for the LJ purge. I was here for the rise and fall of Delicious. I was posting HORRID fics on ff.net and adult ff.net. I’m so used to the fandom wank that it just kind of bounces off of me. But this is the first time I’ve been directly attacked, which is new for me! Usually I was just on the fringes going WHAT IS EVERYONE YELLING ABOUT. So it was a bit startling and then just hilarious? Sad too, but mostly funny. I don’t care at all haha. They can yell all they want and throw their lil ‘excuse me but…’ things at me until they’re blue in the face. At the end of the day, I am writing what I wanna write and sharing it with people who wanna see it and like it too soooooo

Tags are super easy to block and avoid. I like to pride myself on my tagging system and if they don’t work I rectify the situation! SUPER EASY. I PROMISE. Controlling your media intake is EVEN EASIER. Xkit is glorious. Tumblr savior used to be a thing but I don’t know if it exists anymore? Anyway. MEDIA CONSUMPTION, BLUEBERRIES. Be kind to each other and just enjoy all the free and epic content out there.

happy, happy birthday to my very favorite wheel! i hope your day is filled with lots of fic to read, people who are too attractive for your own good, chocolate, hedgies, and fun. xoxo

When I first read this, I missed one of the commas and thought you were wishing me a day full of chocolate hedgies and, being me, I had to find out if those exist.

Turns out that yes, yes they do, so if anyone wants to get me those for my birthday, it’d be pretty cool.

Anyway, besides being illiterate, today is a lovely day, and I’m just glad you’re in it to make it that much more lovely!

Politics made no sense. The people are semi-aquatic and half their sacred duties involved meeting with fancy dignitaries and predicting their fortune or granting them luck. If Lance was lost before, he sure was lost now. He knew he was forgetting something; something very important….. But for the life of him he couldn’t remember what it was. The clothes felt too heavy, the jewels and bells felt like they were too much. He liked the attention but everything just felt… out of place. 

Why did he look so different? They said he was meant to be here. They said a Great Metal Beast of Blue fell from the heavens and protected him in it’s claws, bestowing them with him, a Gift of Fortune. But what was he supposed to do now….? And what had he forgotten….?

Literally I have no excuse. Drawing confused Lance in fancy getup and dragged to some fancy dignitaries meeting is just something I really like doing. Also drawing aliens is fun.

If  VIXX Members have girlfriends:
  • N: I recently went to the zoo with my nephews and we had so much fun. If I will have a girlfriend I would love to go to the amusement park, although I don’t enjoy getting on scary rides.(laughs)I would like to be a boyfriend who can make his girlfriend happy every day. I am not sure if I could though, I just wish I could be one.
  • LEO: I like to meet a girl who is wise like my mom. She does not have to be older than me but I want someone I can lean on to.I am a type of boyfriend who gives everything to a girlfriend. Yet if she does something wrong such as to cheat, I turn away very coldly. If she doesn't, then I will do everything that I can to make her happy.
  • KEN: I don’t need anything else but she got to have irresistible desire (?).I have never done preparing an event. So if I get a chance, I would love to do one for my future girlfriend. She would love it, right?
  • RAVI: Going on a date? Not in a place like here (arboretum). If I go on a date with my girlfriend, I would go to Hanok Village. How they look is important to me. And I want to see the overall harmony of person’s appearance and in that sense, I am a fan of an actress Lee Ha-Nui.
  • HONGBIN: My ideal type for girlfriend is pretty specific. I wish my future girlfriend has a pretty smile face, half-moon shaped eyes, and long straight hair. Is there any woman who can only look at me and no one else? In fact, if the weather is as good as today, I won’t mind doing anything. It would also be good even if I just go for a walk; all I want is a "dreamy girlfriend".
  • HYUK: I get jealous easily. I wish my future girlfriend would have no guy around her. And about her appearance, I wish she looks pretty For Me.If I get a girlfriend, I would like to go to Hallasan. If I go to such challenging place with someone I love I would feel very pleased. It would be better if we face all sorts of hardship as we climb up the mountain?

though, y’know, despite pretty openly mocking Pearl with that form, Amethyst did not mock or parody her nose in any way, which I appreciate. She very easily could have but she didn’t. And I mean maybe that’s because her basic form was still the same and she could only make clothes and stuff to go over it so she couldn’t alter her nose, but it also just seems like she just wouldn’t? She teases Pearl a lot but pretty much never about her nose. Out of 57 episodes they’ve only ever had one gag about her nose (when Amethyst booped her nose with the party hat as her nose in “So Many Birthdays”) but even then it was more affectionate teasing than mockery.

I just really appreciate that. I’m pretty sure I talked about it before but I really do. I mean, she has a big pointed nose, its a very prominent feature of hers and I feel like any other show would go to that well more often for jokes but SU just pretty much completely refuses to

I was tagged by @ethanscribbles and @lindira to post 5 works I am most proud of, so here they are!

Not in particular order, but the last two pieces are old-ish.. Castiel one (4th) is perhaps the one that I spent the most time on (the leaves on the trees are individually painted pretty much) but the last one (of the boy, my son Arthur, at the waterfall) is by far the favourite piece i’ve ever painted. 

The first two, I had a lot of fun with the design elements, and the 3rd one of Yvad is still on my computer desktop background. :)

Now, I kinda want to tag EVERYONE i know, but in particular @perditionxroad @cocotingo @sluah @thirdrailsniper @elidoo @arkilliandragon @atarial @illusionaryennui @cerulione @aischeu @selydra @valkatra @elfrooted 

I’m actually not kidding about tagging everyone - I really wanna see what you’re proud of!!  Please do this thing and tag me. :)
