Hi! I want to draw people with a lot of emotion captured, but I don't really know how to do it so that the viewer feels something. I want to show more emotion, I guess? (This was really unclear, I know :0) Thank you so much!

What a great question, @everchangingotps​!

I think studying anatomy helps a lot. Facial muscles are a bit complex, and they move in different ways to make the frowns and smiles happen!

Here’s a few great resources I found:

If you liked this post, please consider reblogging this post so more artists can see it!

@alolanbichu said: (Can I suggest polyamorous people too?)

Idk, I’m still a little unclear on whether polyam can really be considered a queer identity in and of itself? I know there’s tons of overlap between queerness and being polyam, but from what I understand there’s also cis straight polyam people?

Also I think I’m about done for tonight tbh, but anyone is free to take this graphic and add flags to it if they’d like.

I find you as a very important part of Obitine fandom (your art keeps this ship alive!!) and I'm thankful for that. Also i have a question: how do you imagine Obi-Wan after Satine's death? I think he could live with this, he is a Jedi after all. But i believe he had one huge break down when he cried so much he couldn't breathe (and maybe drunk some alcohol??? idk man) and Anakin did comfort him. These are my thoughts I wanna hear yours! And sorry for this ask being so long, hope you don't mind!

Aw, sweet anon, you make me blush, but everybody in the fandom is important! I’m glad you like the art, but your liking it is keeping the ship shipping along too, otherwise I‘d just be tossing sketches into the abyss of the internet.  <3<3<3  And there are lots of lovely artists in this corner of fandom, most of whom have been here longer than me.

Your (sad) question:

I’m not sure I think that Obi-Wan has much time to grieve for a while after Satine’s death? It’s unclear what the timeline is between The Lawless and Sabotage, but it seems close to me.

In general, I think after Satine’s death might be when Obi-Wan’s friendship with Padmé grows (they seem closer in RotS than they were during Clone Wars), since she was friends with Satine as well. I’m not sure he’d ever say much about it, just quietly enjoy Padmé’s company, knowing that she’s thinking of Satine and missing her too.

Anyway, I wrote you a little scene set during the Sabotage/The Wrong Jedi arc, but it’s pretty depressing.

Hi do you think you could serve up a hot scenario (or head canon f that's easier for you) about Dabi? Some tragic angst about how his old flame is a hero now and he sees them in combat? I hope that's clear enough to run with? It's okay if you don't want to do this, I know it's a little unclear. Thank you and I love your blog!!!! ❤️

Not gonna lie, I’m totally kind of feeling Dabi right now :)


  • He comes to an abrupt stop and finds himself staring at you for a moment while you’re engaged in battle and a flood of memories courses through his mind of the time when you both were happy and still together. He doesn’t smile or anything when he thinks back about the pleasant and not so pleasant memories, and he doesn’t know how he feels when he sees that you’ve made a name for yourself as a hero. But he faintly remembers when you briefly mentioned to him about being a hero or something but it somehow went over his head and he never really bothered to ask you about it again.
  • When he sees you struggling against the villain that you’re fighting he takes a step forward but hesitates the instant he moves. He doesn’t know if he should help you or not because there was a time where he would have done everything he could to protect you and keep you safe and sound, but now that you both aren’t together anymore he’s not sure what his next course of action should be. He definitely feels an urge to give you a helping hand but he hates the sensation because even after all these years he still has some lingering feelings for an ex-lover that shattered his heart and left him broken.
  • His eyes never leave you as he watches you from a distance where you won’t be able to notice him. He could feel his jaw clenching tightly because he hated how you still had this kind of impact on him. He spent so many days, weeks, and months desperately trying to hate and get over you for what you’ve done to him, for leaving him to pick up the pieces that you left in him and never looking back. But one look at you made him forget about his hatred, but only for a moment’s instance. He turns his back on you and begins to walk away because you’re just a stranger to him now, and besides, a villain helping a hero out is something that’s unheard of.

Besides the issues of SJ/M writing the Mor narrative as she did, what also bothers me is how unclear she made it. Now we have people insisting she is bi and that people who call her a lesbian are erasing her bisexuality, when it wasn't completely clear one way or another. I view her as a lesbian because she said she couldn't be with Az /because/ she prefers females. If she was bi, what would her preferring females have to do with anything? I don't think Sarah thought about nb people, so (1/2)

even if Mor was bi with a preference for women, she would still be capable of loving and being with a man right? So the fact that she doesn’t (or can’t, as she says) love Az that way should have nothing to do with the fact that he’s a man? She just doesn’t love him that way. Including that line about not loving him because of her preference makes me think she’s a lesbian who has sex with men for exactly the reason she says, sometimes she needs release and it keeps her secret. It’s so messy (2/2)

My problem with this is that SJMess probably doesn’t give a fuck? Her coming out scene reads like it was written by a straight person, a straight person that has never talked to a wlw (in this case) for more than five minutes. In my opinion, M0r is suffering from compulsory heterosexuality and she isn’t bi, why? Because she looks physically ill after having sex with men. Her whole storyline is so so messy and full of suffering, it makes absolutely no sense…

Any recommendations on coming out at work? I work with many other teenagers and have been "testing the waters" as to what they think of trans people. Most are cool with trans people, even my super racist coworker; I just don't know how to bring it up, to my bosses or the staff.

Your rec list in your bio isn't working

Aaah thanks for letting me know! Are you on the app? I just tried the link, and I think it works on the computer and not the app (where it searches for the tag “rec-list” instead of “rec list” for some reason). Does anyone know how to fix this? Or do I have to go through and add a #rec-list tag to everything?

How would Van and Ranmaru be with a s/o, who isn't afraid to say her opinion, is a little stubborn, serious most of the time, has dyed hair, don't really care what others think, and is pretty much the opposite of Haruka? Hope you can work with this, and sorry if it is a little long and unclear, but anyway, thank you >_<

Oh this is very interesting, Reader-Chan! I love it! 

Reader-chan opposite of Haruka

Van Kiryuin

Van does not necessarily have a type of girl, however he would be very intrigued by this girl! He especially loves her dyed hair and thinks her stubbornness is cute. He would tease her about her seriousness most of the time and do basically anything to get a rise out of you. Though he likes Haruka, he has to admit she is a bit too innocent for his liking. He admires your unique personality and how you are not like other girls who has fawned over him. He will parade you around and show anyone and everyone that you are his girl and his alone. 

Ranmaru Kurosaki

At first he would look at you and just think you are cute with your dyed hair and style, however upon getting to know you he would become more interested. He likes that you have a “I-don’t-give-a-fuck” attitude but you can be serious when needed. He likes that you are not so innocent or a goody-two-shoes like some girls *cough* Haruka *cough*. He might even offer you two just hanging out to chill and listen to rock music together. You two are a perfect match over your stubbornness and different perspective on certain things.

I've never really been a Taylor swift fan but I don't get why everyone thinks she's this big deal. My sister thinks she's the devil because there's something about her that makes no sense. I also saw an article that's said she basically publicly shamed/guilted Apple because after you called apple out publicly what are they supposed to do but go along with what you say? It wasn't necessarily by choice. Plus people are poor, I'm not gonna waste money on music when there are more important things

i think this message is disagreeing with what taylor is doing, right??? sorry it’s a little unclear but either way she’s just kind of a bad person in general tbh… like yeah she does something nice for the occasional fan and she does donate to charity but it’s clearly all a ruse so people refer to her as someone who is very generous and such. apple is starting this thing called ‘apple music’ and basically people who sign up get a 3 month free trial, right?? and apparently during this time the musicians don’t get paid for it anyways taylor wrote them a public letter claiming that she is doing this because struggling musicians and bands don’t get paid for this 3 month free trial right?? and you know why she wrote the letter publicly? you know why she said it’s because it’s unfair on struggling musicians and bands? because she’s money hungry and incredibly greedy. if she went to apple privately, the press would’ve found out and called her out on her shit but now because she made it publicly and blamed her greed on ‘’’struggling musicians’’’ she thinks ppl can’t see her being a literal scrooge. like she doesn’t put her music on youtube, unless it’s of course accompanied by music videos WHICH HELP PROMOTE HER MUSIC, she pulled her music from spotify because her fans can listen to it for free and god FORBID THAT’S ALLOWED AND SHE DOESN’T GET MONEY FOR IT, HOW DARE PEOPLE TRY TO DO THAT! and now this shit?? just because she won’t get paid for THREE months?? not for a year, not forever. FOR THREE FUCKING MONTHS. let me tell you something, struggling musicians and bands do not give a shit about not getting paid for three months because let’s be honest if you are a fucking struggling artist most people won’t know who you are so you won’t get many sales. struggling artists will more than likely be happy about the exposure. honestly, this girl doesn’t care about her fans or about making music that makes people happy. let’s be honest here, if that was her goal she wouldn’t try to sue her own fans for making lyric videos on youtube with her music. she wouldn’t sending threatening letters to FANS who make merchandise with her lyrics/name and make no profit from it. she wouldn’t pull her music from spotify. like let’s talk about fans who simply cannot afford to pay $10 for an album, they have no way of listening to her music but that’s not her problem right?? you’re not her fan unless you’re paying her and anybody who says otherwise is too far up her ass to see the truth but anyways, that’s none of my bussiness.

So here is a small tutorial for colouring solid black areas. As an example I chose Zeref because he’s got the darkest hair in Fairy Tail.

Hi! This may seem a silly question, but it's something that's bothered me for a while. I really enjoy writing my own stories, but I'm also very interested in publishing someday. Whether or not that will happen is another story. I just sometimes feel like I might have to change my stories in order to publish them because (and I could be ignorant in this regard because I don't read very much as of now) gay fiction still seems to be very sparse. (1/2)

I feel like, if I were to publish a story, I’d never make enough for publishing to even be worth it. Do you think there’s a good enough market for gay fiction, outside of romance? I apologize if my question is unclear. (2/2)

I very firmly adhere to “write for yourself, not for the publisher.” Write the story you want to write, not the one you think you’ll have the easiest time marketing. Don’t worry about whether or not it will get published at this point—finish it first.

On that note, I think you’re underestimating both the demand for gay fiction outside of romance and the publishing world.

Listen, I read your FAQ page already, and I wasn't even asking you a question. I'm just saying that you're using the term Celt, which is a highly sensitive cultural term as it is, and appropriating it for your own silly and slightly offensive use. If you're not going to be inclusive of all the 7 modern tribes, then just don't call this series "The Celts". UK Brothers, or British Isles work just fine because they are not extorting anyone's culture.

Dear anon,

I think I made myself unclear the first time, so allow me to write a poem about this.

The fucks. 
They’re not here.
I do not give them.
Ah! But! The beauty
Of you speaking about
Offensive term use
And asking me to call this
The UK brothers
with Ireland being in it
Love and kisses

Hope you like it.

Sincerely yours,

Hey. I'm the first kiss girl. Hahaha. Sorry it was unclear. I was thinking it like you are with all of the guys in a group and they all find out. Then luke like pulls you aside and gives you your first kiss (but makes sure you want him to) I dunno. You do what you like! You don't have to do exactly what I tell you. Make it your own 😊💖💖 Thanks again

Sorry again for the confusion I just wanted to make sure I did what you wanted! Thanks for the request, I hope you like it! Let us know what you think! 

First kiss (Luke)

“Oh I remember my first kiss,” Ashton started, “Year 4, prettiest girl in school, I passed her a note during class and asked her to meet me under the slide at recess.” Ashton seemed quite pleased with how charming he was even as a 9 year old.

“I’ve got you beat Ash! Mine was in Year 2. She had the 64 pack of crayons and told me if I was her boyfriend she would share them with me. So I kissed her during class when the teacher wasn’t looking.” Michael explained, proud that he had his first kiss before Ashton.

“Mine was my next door neighbor when I was 6 years old.” Calum bragged. “My mum dropped me off for a play date and we were playing with dolls and action figures. She kept staring at me and I thought she liked me so leaned over and kissed her. I guess I was wrong because she started crying.” The room was soon filled with hysterical laughter after hearing that Calum’s first kiss didn’t go as well as the others.

“Well I waited a little longer than the rest of you, Year 7.  We were at a friend’s birthday party and played spin the bottle. I had a crush on her for a while so when the bottle pointed to her I got really nervous and didn’t know if I could go through with it. But then she grabbed my face and put her lips on mine, it was great.” Luke said smiling at the memory.

“What about you (Y/N)?” Ashton asked looking at you. You felt your cheeks turn red, you didn’t want to tell them that you haven’t had your first kiss yet.

“Oh, umm, I don’t like to kiss and tell…” You say nervously as you down at the floor.

“You haven’t had your first kiss yet have you?!” Calum yells.

“Shut up Calum!” You yelled back.

“Wait are you serious?” Michael questioned.

“So what if I haven’t kissed anyone yet? I’m waiting for the right person.” You responded. You were now thoroughly embarrassed. “I’ll be right back.” You say, wanting to get away from them. You walked towards the bathroom and stopped in the hallway when you heard someone behind you.

“If you’re just going to make fun of me I’m not in the mood.” You said as Luke walked closer to you.

“I was actually checking to see if you were alright. The guys can pretty rude sometimes but they don’t mean any harm. I think it’s sweet that you want to wait.” You watched Luke bite down on his lip and play with his lip ring as he stared at you.

“(Y/N), can…can I kiss you?” Luke asked. You were surprised by his question but as you looked into his beautiful blue eyes all you could do was nod your head. He put his hands on your face and pulled you closer as he pressed his lips to yours. You couldn’t have asked for a better first kiss.

Shortish update on this one; the ballet thing definitely consumed a lot of time and energy. (I haven’t forgotten about “Mercury,” by the way, for anyone who cares, but I obviously have back-burnered it. Turns out I can’t write two continuing pieces at once. How our big dreams crumble.) Just a little inching forward on a few fronts here. Backward:  amatterofcomplication’s masterpost, part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10, part 11, part 12, part 13, part 14, part 15, part 16, and part 17.

Helena stops by the firehouse to pick up Myka’s remaining things—she has so few things of her own at this point, and Helena would like to have at least these few belongings at home in the apartment, so that Myka might have a vague sense of its truly being home, of belonging, of actually having belongings.

A cornered part of Helena had wished, after Christina’s death, for a fire, one that would sweep away everything, and if it did not kill Helena—and most days, she hoped for that—it would at least remove every reminder at once, every bit of before. There would be no toys, no books, no chess, no chair… not even the clothes Helena had worn when she was Christina’s mother. The skin of before would burn away.

What would have taken its place, however, she has no idea. And she suspects that Myka has no idea what will take the place of her own skin of before. Helena wants to say, here, take mine…

I don't understand what happened to Paul? Why did he show up in uniform? I don't get who he is.

So according to Graeme Manson, Paul’s been working with the Castor side of the conspiracy the whole time and has been playing double agent. Also, in the same interview:

EW: So he (Paul) had been with the Castor side the entire time, because that was a bit unclear?

MANSON: I think he was embedded from the beginning. If you go back, this Afghanistan scenario that got him compromised by Dyad and put in that position as a monitor was manufactured to put him in that position where he appeared to be someone that they could compromise. So he was inserted as a spy into Project Leda by Project Castor.
