i dunno how to tag things


Felt like posting an updated version of my expression tutorial from a few years back. I absolutely love drawing expressions, and one of the things I’ve found most helpful is just making sure when you draw them you keep your sketches loose in order to add more life into the drawings. (Now back to your regular scheduled fanart on this blog…) Yeh boi

Have you ever considered doing character fusion art? Sorta like that steven universe thing, except with bnha characters.

Never really thought about doing them before and I dunno why since I love that kinda art??? So here, have the ot3 these were seriously fun

the privilege of being yours

Summary: “You said my nose was cute and squishy!” Isak replies, pouting.

“You’re right, I lied. Your nose is the squishiest, and it’s gorgeous. It’s my most favourite thing about you.”

Even touches the tip of Isak’s nose, pushing it left and right. He laughs at the face of annoyance Isak is probably making. He always did say that grumpy and pouty Isak was the one he enjoyed the most.

Or, Isak and Even spend a morning in bed together laughing, kissing and falling in love all over again (but what’s new about that).

I’m a total noob at writing, but I had fun writing this total fluff fic and it wouldn’t be possible without my beautiful betas @ronasslynch, @buckywithegoodhair and @vanqoh. The faith y’all had in me makes me cry <3.

hey guys! my last semester of high school starts tomorrow and i thought i could make a quick lil masterpost on how to take on your next semester head-on and how to start off strong.

1. start off organized (whatever organized means to you)

  • one thing i tried this year was keeping a folder for all of my school papers and it helped me a lot instead of just putting my papers in one designated spot like previous years. keeping one folder (or one folder per subject) can help you keep track of all of your papers. 
  • if you need tips on how to stay organized, check out my masterpost here :)

2. try to have a positive mindset

  • although i’m kind of loathing going back to school, you have to try and find the positives in going back! and it doesn’t have to be academic, my positive thought about school is that i’ll get to see my friends and read more cool books for Literature class. if you go into it with a negative mindset, school will be a drag and you won’t do your best.

3. make small progress on any long term assignments at the beginning

  • following this step should help relieve any stress about a long term project, especially one that you know is coming (ex. me with my quarter assignments for literature). making progress can range from starting to read the book early to just writing a sentence a day or somethin’. but you don’t want to get too caught up in this step that you forget about the work that is due the next day, or something of the sort. 

4. *mainly for seniors* if you have anything application related, do it asap.

  • i know that i have my CSF application due some time throughout the second semester and a couple scholarship items to complete, so i’m going to do them either during the break before the next semester or as early as possible in the next semester. doing this is very helpful and will help relieve any anticipation or stress. 

5. detox the weekend before you go back to school

  • personally, i try to refrain from doing anything school-related the weekend before school because you should just relax and prepare by being relaxed. take a bubble bath, watch a movie, hang with some friends, sleep, anything that makes you happy and relaxed. dunno what to do? i have some cute things here in my self care tag.

6. Have fun.

  • have a great time, don’t let school run your whole life.

i know this isn’t much but these are just my own little tips that i thought might help someone else. it sounds a lot like my Staying Organized masterpost, but most of that does overlap here. any masterpost recommendations? let me know and I will definitely take it into consideration.

The weirdest thing i can think of happening to me is when the furry girl at my school was going up the stairs really slow while I was behind her and she just turned her head and said “you can go around me you know.” And i was like, “um, or I could go up the stairs like a normal person?” I wasn’t even too close to her or anything, I was taking my time too, but she said “or you could have a nice attitude like a normal person.” To which I said, “you were the one with the attitude first” like a fucking baby

And I walked around her until I got to the top of the stairs. As I turned to open the door to the hall, she had completely stopped and was staring at me. And i was like?? Ok?

And then..she barked. She barked at me.

I was so taken aback that I just kept walking with my friend and we joked about it on our way to class.

Later on though..as I was telling my other friends about it, one of them was like “dude she cursed you”

And I was like “what?”

And she kept saying the furry girl cursed me, which I found funny and told another friend about. He looked me dead in the eyes and said “no, dude, she cursed you. She barks at people to curse them. She literally told me she liked to kill animals to consume their form. You’re fucked.”

And I was like oh shit wow ok. But we all forgot about it later on until a couple days ago when the furry girl was on the same set of stairs taking her time and I was in front of her. She walked around me and for a split second we made eye contact and she just..smiled at me in an all-knowing way. I dunno how to feel about it but every time i see her she looks at me no matter what for a good ten seconds before leaving.

Do you ever kinda… forget that you’re… not straight? Like, I don’t forget that I’m pan but I’ll see something that’ll be all “straight people are so offended by this” and i’ll be all “ha! i’m straight and i’m not offended!” before pausing and going “wait. I’m not straight! Ahahaha! Thank fuck.”

I dunno. I think I’ve spent too long hiding that I’m queer… whoops.

Cute Dancer

“ Shiro is a dance teacher and teaches contemporary dance to teenagers with his dance partner Allura. Lance teaches the class after his which happens to be ballet for little kids. Shiro likes to stick around and watch the long legged man dance and smile at the kids and tries to get the nerves to ask him out. His students end up asking Lance out for him instead. “

I saw this and @shir-oh-no said we could write things for the aus as long as we tagged them and

I just had to

(fun fact: autocorrect tried to turn aus into anus)

((I dunno if this turned out how the au prompt meant so I’m sorry if it’s not right))

(((Edit: I changed the title bc handsome dancer didn’t fit)))

Shiro ran a hand through his mess of hair as he said goodbye to the last of his students, offering the young teen a small smile. Allura, the woman he taught the class with, waved goodbye with a cheerful ‘see you later, Shiro’ before she exited the room. It had been a long day and class went a little longer than usual, but it ended just in time for the next class, which came piling in only moments after Allura had left. The children seemed excited, eyes shining as they talked to their parents.

Just as Shiro was heading for the exit, a loud voice met his ears and he turned around slightly.

“Hey, guys! Everyone’s here so early, I feel like you all planned this.” There was a playful tone to the man’s voice, deep blue eyes sparkling with joy as he set his bag down. In moments, he was being mobbed by the children and a barked out laugh passed his lips as he crouched down to hug his students. The parents in the room all seemed to have small, fond smiles on their faces as a few of them laughed and shook their heads slightly at the sight.

“Lance, are we doing something new today?” One of the young girl’s voice chirped, giggling when the brunette had scooped her up and stood straight.

“We are, April, and I bet you’ll do great.” The man Shiro now knew was Lance beamed down at the girl before lowering her back to the ground. “Now! Everyone get your ballet shoes on! We have a long day ahead of us!” Lance’s captivating eyes scanned the room before they ended up landing on Shiro, who jumped at the smile the man shot his way. He waved slightly and the older man waved back, a slight flush dusting his cheeks as he quickly shuffled out of the room. He could hear Lance’s laugh follow him out into the hallway.

Before Shiro really knew it, he was staying after his class to watch Lance teach his own class. Dark eyes followed the other’s form as he demonstrated what he was going to teach the kids that day. Sometimes he would find himself staring at his legs that were hugged just right by the tights he always wore, showing off just how long and defined they were. The shirts he wore were no better, really. The tank tops and t-shirts clung to his body tight like a second layer of skin, showing off his fairly slim yet defined form. If it wasn’t for the fact that he was teaching children, Shiro would think the outfit would be distracting. The parents seemed to enjoy it almost as much as he did, though, so that was a thing. Sometimes, Lance would catch him staring and send a short wink his way, which usually ended with Shiro flushing and hurrying out of the room with Lance’s laughter following him.

Trialing a new organic tea today to see if it makes my allergies wig out. If I don’t get respiratory symptoms from it we’ll know it was whatever the leaves were being treated with prior to drying/after drying that was doing it with the other teas. 

If just my stomach freaks out we’ll know it’s the caffeine but not necessarily an allergy and then I could potentially try their non caffeinated blends. Here’s hoping, cause winter is fucking coming and I dunno how I’m going to do it without a hot beverage. I suppose there’s always hot water and lemon but…y’know…it’d be nice to have something to enjoy like a normal person whose body isn’t trying to murder itself.

On the plus side I was able to get my epi pen on the NHS when I was back home in the UK so that is a thing I have now instead of not having and just hoping I don’t need it. 

American health care, gentle beings, a terrifying summary in one sentence.

the way straight people talk about heterosexual attraction as an integral part of growing up, as though everyone experiences it, is actually the most subtly disheartening thing

just offhanded stuff about the age where “boys start thinking about girls differently” or vice versa or like, the age where you “become a man/woman” (and for women it’s always when one’s period starts :/)always gives me this quiet sinking feeling like
oh yeah, i forgot you have to be reminded we exist
i forgot you don’t consider our experiences growing up to be normal


Alright gang, I have been on tumblr a LONG time (six years) and as a newbie to the Voltron fandom I have read quite a few posts about ship wars and ‘paedophilia’ claims. Sadly, this is not new, happens in many a fandom. Here is a handy guide on how to avoid the haters (and not be a hater yourself).

Writing this up because I am a veteran tumblr user, if you will. And I know that some of the youngins might appreciate the advice.

How to have a good Tumblr time!

Number one: Use your blacklists. I cannot stress this enough. One particular person crapping all over your ship? Blacklist their name. You don’t like a particular ship, BLACKLIST IT. Keep your dash a happy place for you.

Number two: If people are crapping on your writing/artwork/creative posts, block them. Easy as that. If it’s anonymous, I’m pretty sure that you can also block that. If all else fails, turn off anon for a while. It doesn’t mean that the haters have won. It means that you’re taking care of yourself. Also, try not to take what they say personally. I know it’s hard but you are contributing to fandom and doing a great job of it! You make so many more people happy then people you piss off by writing/drawing/creative outlet-ing(?) your ship.

Number three: If you get an anonymous hate message on tumblr, IGNORE IT. People do it to get attention and I dunno why, it makes them feel better somehow??? I don’t know. Ignore it. Don’t answer. No point, won’t help you and it certainly won’t change their mind. It’s just going to get you worked up. Also you answering won’t mean that you can shut them down with your words. They don’t care. They just want to see you get riled up. Don’t give them the satisfaction. 

Number four: Remember that you are allowed to ship your ship. One, they are fictional so….yeah. And two, ship whatever makes you happy.

Number five: If all else fails, stay out of the tags. Keep your beautiful followers who make you happy and use your tumblr power to continue to draw/write/creative outlet to your heart’s content. No one has the right to make your tumblr experience a bad one.

Number six: SPREAD POSITIVITY. Get a hate message? Ignore it and write a post about how much you love your ship! Write a fic, draw some art, do other stuff or just lurk and reblog your ship! Whatever you need to. Kudos some fics, reblog some artwork. Spread love, not hate.

Remember kids, BLOCK everyone and IGNORE people who spread negativity. You don’t need that sort of crap in your life. Trust me, once I culled and blocked, life became so much better.

How to not be a hater in FOUR HANDY STEPS

Number one: Don’t be that person who tags your hate. Come on. We’re all human here. People have feelings. Feelings can be hurt. What do you gain from hurting people’s feelings. Really. Come on. Don’t like it? Don’t go into the tags. Don’t tag your negative posts about another ship. Keep it in your own ship tag if need be (if you’re comparing but even then…no need).

Number two: Just because you have an opinion that X ship is crap because of whatever reason, it doesn’t mean that you have to state your opinion. Freedom of speech is a thing (in America, I dunno I’m not from there) but it doesn’t make you immune from people calling you out on your crap. If you feel like you HAVE to put your opinion out there for whatever reason, again, don’t tag it. Saying ‘I CAN SAY WHAT I WANT, LOL WHATEVER’ does not make you cool.  

Number three: Here is a RADICAL NOTION. Wait for it. You can write about how much you love your ship….WITHOUT crapping all over another ship. I know. It’s crazy.

Number four: Don’t actively seek out people and hate on them. What are you? Five?

That’s all from me. Feel free to message me if you need. Just know that if it’s hate, I am not going to respond.
