i get to find out more about them and stuff

i just want to choose something small every day to fall in love with. how often do i really just like… study the heck out of a sunbeam. learn a new word and find out how to use it, teach it to others. watch birds because birds are nice. find a new favorite color. to find out something about each person in my life to compliment them on that’s genuine and better than “you’re pretty,” i mean realizing they always get water for other people before they sit down at lunch or how neat their notes are or how they always have a good pun. i want to listen harder and talk a little less and say more important stuff. and i want to watch out for stuff to just obsess over like a cool cloud or a tree and just. learn stuff from people. ask more questions about how her hair is so silky and just. fall in love with everybody.

Thoughts on S2 Voltron

-why the fuck was there so little Lance TBH

-seeing more aliens was gr8

- I’m mad it goes 13 episodes there so little development for most

-like this season was honestly the Keith and shiro show

- I love them both but I also want even screen time because I love ALL the characters

- literally Keith and shiro were the only ones who developed much

-if Keith and Allura get together I will beat someone’s ass

- LANCE was in it so little

-there wasn’t enough of my long legged son

- we didn’t find out stuff about the blue paladin

- the mall episode was the best one

- I’ll say it again 13 eps isn’t enough to properly develop

- I like the way the handled galra Keith I used to detest that idea but they made it work really really well

-not enough Hunk

-I love pidge

- shiro and Allura both need long naps tbfh

- I love coran.

- seriously young coran saved me

-the pool scene was great

- “two bros chillin in the hot tub five feet apart cause they’re not gay”

-emperor’s new groove style wall climbing

- when shiro grabbed Allura hand boi I screamed

- I wish we had more Keith Lance interaction since they set it up a fun dynamic between them in s1

- I wish we had gotten to see more development for Lance

-shiro and Keith being bros was good

over all I did actually love it a lot just wish they had more than 13 20 minute episodes because all they can do is hit major plot things they need to and work in as much character development as they can which isn’t a whole lot

anonymous asked:

Oh god, I totally understand your feelings regarding tapastic bl stuff. I used to be quite into it (ew) but looking back I realise that it's actually a really gross sub genre that does nothing to actually enhance LGBT fiction or discuss legitimate issues. Loads of them have incest as well which I don't think I need to say anything about...but yeah whole thing is just not good, I hope you're able to find a way to get your work out of that category - it's so much more than yaoi nonsense

ya i emailed em and got sz taken off the list which sets my heart at ease :’) 

anonymous asked:

Tbh i would pay for a dlc where Ryder flips out when they find out they're the pathfinder, crying, screaming, the works. Stuff is getting thrown around medbay, punches are being thrown, in the end they're curled up next to their coma twin sobbing for them to wake up. Just full blown hysteria because i feel like it's not addressed very well. they're like, "okay i guess I'm the pathfinder and I'm 100% okay about it"

You’re right, I wish the game let you act more reluctant, more upset by being made Pathfinder.

*SPOILER*
I mean imagine it, your father has just died, your only twin is in a coma. And then you’re suddenly thrown into a leadership role you weren’t trained for, weren’t prepared for, over your fathers second-in-command who is more qualified than you are.

That’s a lot of stress in a short amount of time. No one can just be okay with that.

But we always have headcanons, even without a dlc

Okay. No more.

No more just ghosting on people instead of telling them I’m not interested. It’s lame. (Though if you do it, I get it fam. It’s hard af telling people stuff like that.) It’s not productive. And overall, it hinders me from seeking out one of “The Ones.”

So. No more.

I’m getting serious about finding a little. I want a little princess, and I shall not rest until I find her. Wish me luck, fam.

A friend told me they fired themselves from comics & illustration work ....

A friend of mine stopped doing the small press comics circuit in 2015, and it’s made me think a lot about how we need to be more careful about ‘encouragement posts online’. You might say something that would kick yourself into action, but there’s actually people out there who don’t respond in the same way, and it can actively discourage them. So yeah, I think it’s important to tell you about what happened (because other wise you’d just never find out about this stuff, right?) ….

So it started with arguments over fan art which caused the scene to get sour and hostile to new people. To me it highlighted a divide in attitudes. Relaxed ‘zinesters’ who believe in using self publishing to make whatever you want, whatever the quality VS. those pursuing a professional career, striving for the very best they can achieve and ultimately trying to use self publishing as a stepping stone to greater things. 

At that time people would say things along the lines of ‘if you can’t afford to table at a convention without the fanart, then your work isn’t good enough to be here.’ … I think the thought behind this was to encourage people to ‘STEP UP YOUR SMALL PRESS GAME.’ but it’s completely without context right? You know if you’re not trying your best and it’s ok to tell yourself to up your own game. But we’re all coming from wildly different backgrounds! You don’t necessarily know who is working full time with 3 kids and drawing comics whenever they possibly can, and who is working part time with no responsibilities to anyone. What if I’m already regularly crashing from the work load and I can’t work any harder? my comics could technically be at a high standard, but the ideas aren’t mainstream enough (we are self publishing them in the small press after all.)  (this is also ignoring that both comics and illustration industries have fashion styles which change over time - you could just be unlucky with how you prefer to draw)

My friend responded to the situation with ‘well if I’m not good enough, I guess I’ll stop self publishing comics and zines then. I’d be making a loss without the fanart anyway.’ … my heart broke a little bit.

And this unhealthy ‘STEP UP YOUR GAME’ attitude towards work seems to pop all all the time online. People beating themselves up over not working hard enough. Kicking themselves loudly in public (online) and everyone agreeing with them. Reinforcing this weird idea that we could all always be doing more and that we definitely have to become some sort of crazy obsessed comics machine that does nothing else. Sell your soul to the comics gods or GTFO.

I’m actually guilty of doing this myself. I’ve mellowed out over the years though. When I was being treated for an unrelated anxiety disorder, my therapist pointed out that I was regularly working myself up if I thought any amount of time had been wasted rather than used efficiently. We’re people, not machines and we don’t have to work all day every day, it’s perfectly ok to take breaks. In fact it’s probably healthier to regularly take scheduled breaks than to work until you burn out.

My friend read some more posts recently which have lead them to quitting freelance comics and illustration work altogether. Which is just crazy because they’re very skilled at drawing (better than I can draw). I think we need to remember that you can’t just write something like ‘be prepared to give every ounce of your being to your comic project or you may as well just give up right now’ without considering that someone with a different disposition to you might read the same thing and think ‘Welp. OK. Bye.’

Keep kicking yourself into action if it works for you, but consider whether or not you need to air it publicly? And choose words carefully if you do decide it’s important to you to share it.


I really hope that my friend ends up coming back to the small press world some time in the future. But until then - please be kind to each other - AND TAKE BREAKS <3

the cs fandom, fanfiction and I

today I’ve decided I won’t be writing fics for captain swan anymore

it was no small decision. I discussed it with Cee this morning, and kept thinking about it at work all day long, until I came back home and decided that I’ve had enough, with this show and those fics and a lot of things, and it’s time for me to retire

I’ve had enough of only getting a handful of notes on my fics when I spend hours writing them, when I go out of my way to find some time to write even if my days are busy as fuck as it is. I’ve had enough of barely getting any feedback, be it reblogs or tags or reviews, and not knowing if people actually liked the stuff they read. I’ve had enough of knowing that if I was going with the flow, if I was writing about weddings and babies and Emma being someone she’s not, my fics would be more popular. I’ve had enough of rude reviews from people who only view me as a writing machine

but mostly, I’ve had enough of valuing myself based on how this fandom reacts to my writing. it’s never been healthy, and it’s time for me to bow out

I appreciate the few people who have been appreciating my word, the friends who always go out of their way to cheer me on, the readers whose username I know well because I see them on every piece of writing I post. you guys are the best, and I love you very much, and thank you for following me in this three-year ride. you made it worth it

I will be focusing on smaller fandoms (*waves banner that reads ‘watch the expanse!!!’*) since the pressure I put on myself will be less great that way

perhaps it’s better for everyone involved

anyone else ‘write by accident’ ?

i was watching a critique of general media trends, as i often do, and got to thinking

i remember being taught that the villain should have something to do with the hero’s inner motivation, it’s just been a long time.  i tend to like…ignore all the ‘rules’ except stuff about grammar and motivation that make my stories comprehensible.  I find that when i try to follow every rule i end up getting kind of paralyzed and feeling like I can’t write at all, so I tend to think of them more like guidelines or suggestions than rules.  

i kind of write by accident?  like I come up with a concept i like and i keep developing and developing it until it’s a viable story.  but then even after i get to writing i’m still figuring out my story.  like i figure out soooo much about my characters after i start writing them.  and my themes too, though i figure out my themes way later.

i guess the ‘professional’ way is to come up with your theme or your ‘lesson’ first and write a story that teaches that lesson, but i honestly don’t know anyone who does this with their passion projects.  when i do try to write this way, it comes off forced, or at least to me.  it seems to be recieved fairly well.

they way i write is…i have an idea that’s interesting to me.  whether it’s a idea about good people or bad people- it just, interests me. and then i just write and write and rewrite my story, and put every but of focus into it, and eventually i notice patterns, and if decide i like those patterns, i do little things to strengthen it and act like ‘oh yeah, i totally meant to have that theme’.  

i hope that other writers write by accident, too.  yes, it’s bullshit, but like, up to a point, art IS bullshit.  it’s taking something not real- some idea you had in your head- and making it real for someone else.  the characters feel like real people to them and the conflicts feel like they’re important.  And that’s actually pretty neat sorcery.  

i guess it’s backwards?  i come up with happenings or situations first, then build the setting, then the characters, then the themes.  i like to find the character who are most uncomfortable with a certain situation- up to a point.  i don’t want to write out of my lane or anything.

i could bullshit yall and say that The Prince talks to Nathanael’s inner struggle the most bc Nathanael’s inner struggle is to be recognized for who he is.  In the human world he’s seen as a woman.  In the doll world, he’s seen as a man but no one will believe he’s actually a fleshuman.  then he starts impersonating a prince, which is, admittedly, his own fault, but he finds he can’t leave the role. like people refuse to believe he’s not the prince even when he tells them.  so his main struggle throughout is feeling like he has to wear one mask or another to make his life go smoothly.

the Prince is symbolic not only bc he’s one of the masks Nathanael has to wear, but bc when he does return, he offers Nathanael an alternative option of what it means to be a man.  It’s- a godawful option, and we all hope that Nathanael rejects it.  But none the less, it’s there.  

See that?  I just pulled that all out of my ass.  That’s why I hope that other authors write by accident.  because honestly, what i’m talking about is sooo easy to do, about anything.  art is soooo open to interpretation, i mean look how many ‘dark’ theories there are for kids’ franchises.  i could probably look at a soup can label and say that it’s symbolic of communism or some shit if I really wanted to try.  it’s no wonder i do that with my own work sometimes, to justify it.

but at the end of the day?  nah.  it’s just an idea that interested me, and i fleshed it out to share with people.  like, that is literally all it is.

What do you consider a rookie mistake?

I see a lot of beginner posts and all sorts of good stuff, especially now that I’m starting to dip my toe back into the witchy community. So, I ask you peoples who have been at this for a while. What do you consider a rookie mistake?

Personally, I consider over-reading and under-doing a rookie mistake.

  • Ignoring the need for customization.
  • Getting contradictory information, and not experimenting to find out what works for them. 
  • Not attempting a spell more than once to see what’s a fluke and what’s concrete. 
  • Making one source the height of knowledge and being over-cautious when even thinking about exploring other sources. 
  • Not considering the magic of their immediate environment. (I have woods and mountains. You have an ocean. I have old buildings. You have open fields.) 

So on … so forth …

So I just got the printer proofs for my 2015 Sketchbook.  They gave me an option of perfect bond or saddle stitched.  I decided to go with the saddle stitched due to the center of the book has an image that spreads across the 2 pages and you can see it better with this printing method :)

I’m pretty pleased with how it’s turned out.  At first I wasn’t sure it would all work out since the printers I went to at one point couldn’t do this kind of work.  I find out each time I go there now that they can do more and more and I possibly don’t need to travel around to different places now to get stuff printed.

The book is 48 pages:
Size: 8.5 x 8.5
24 pages of Colour
24 pages of Black and White
1 sketch page insert for a custom sketch if requested.

Now that this is done I’m thinking about how I will approach the next sketchbook.  I have many fun ideas for future books.

So these are being printed now and I should have them for Auto Assembly.

I’m excited to see the large batch of them printed.

Sorry for the lighting in the photo. I don’t currently have a set up for taking good photo’s right now.  it’s something I’m going to change when I get the chance.

Cheers :D

I love Haylor SO MUCH. But, I feel bad because i don't really care about harry. He's a good person, for sure. But when people get excited about his solo music or his upcoming movie, I just don't, not really. Well maybe I can assume that I'm a Taylor stan, only. But I'm still haylor shipper tho. :| hbu ?

That’s okay though, you don’t have to feel bad about it haha. I love them both just as much so I’m really excited for Harry’s solo stuff to come out and TS6 :) (I’m kinda more excited for Harry rn though because I’m so curious to find out what his music really sounds like and also, the haylor songs :D:D:D:D)  

Some people actually wear 00, thanks.

Submission by (anonymous)

I work at a popular clothing store. Last week I was ringing out a woman and their daughter and they were talking about how happy they were to find so much stuff in plus size and how we need to get more because “there’s a lot more of us real sized women than there are of you skinny girls!” as she shot my petite sized co-worker a mean look. I told them I was happy they found everything okay. They began going on and on about how at a different store they found clothes for size 00 and said “00?! Like seriously? Who even wears that size? Nobody is that small, nobody. You can’t possibly look good or healthy at that size, those are children’s clothes. I don’t know a single person who wears a size 2 and under who is actually healthy or over the age of 10” I looked right at them and said “actually, I wear a size 00” and they both just stared at me before trying to swallow their words, “are you REALLY?! Wow well uh you’re actually pretty though and don’t look unhealthy” and her daughter chimed in with “uh…yeah you’re like proportional and stuff, like your bones aren’t sticking out or anything so it’s okay”
This alone was enough to annoy me, I appreciate the compliment but please don’t stand there and trash people my size and then try and backtrack with compliments when I prove everything you just said wrong by being a fully grown healthy size 00 woman.

Now imagine if I had gone into a clothing store and told a fat cashier “size 22? Like seriously?! Who even wears that size? Nobody is that big, nobody. You can’t possibly look good or healthy at that size, those are whale clothes. I don’t know a single person who wears a size 14 and over who is actually healthy and under 800 pounds”

anonymous asked:

do you like ideas for new shop items? there are a lot of designs I'd love to see somewhere, especially that's plus size friendly!

i’m always open to them, especially for the basics collection–which is essentially specifically for stuff that you see everywhere for thin folks that is hard to find in plus sizes for affordable prices. if it’s an idea i like and intend on making, i keep a running tally of them to do when i get a chance.

when i first was conceptualizing the basics collection i specifically reached out to plus size folks about what theyd like to see more of, and those ideas have happened and i plan to execute a few more for summer (top on the list for the season are florals and food prints! also more pastel colorblocking) so if you have smth that fits in that category i’d say shoot it at me and i’ll think about it/add it to my list!

Your name: submit What is this?

“Y/N what are you doing?”

Your eyes shot open and you looked up from your arms and saw Dean.

“Hmm?” you hummed drowsily.
“You were asleep on the floor,” he says, his hands motioning towards your body.

Your butt was pushed flush against the couch, legs splayed on the seat of the couch and the rest of your body was laying on the rug. It looked like you were sitting in a chair turned on it’s back.

“Are you okay?”
“Yeah, uh yeah I’m fine. It’s just my thighs, they were hurting really bad and I just thought it would help,” you respond.
