The beautiful Rhysand. (belongs to the equally beautiful Sarah J. Maas)
Still very rough as far as color goes, but after streaming for 3-4 hours, I need a break. And to sleep. ;)
I’ll be continuing this tomorrow morning/night. Once done I’ll post a step by step.
I need to look into compressing my recordings into more manageable time-lapses and actually post to my youtube some day. I have so many recordings from past streams that are just sitting taking up space.
Requests: “Pls do a protective/ jealous Stefan imagine. Could be smut idc but jealous is so cute!!!” (Credits to gif owners! I also kept this as fluff because fluffy and jealous Stefan seems cuter.)
Valentine’s Day was a huge deal in Mystic Falls High. Kids from your classes got to buy candy grams and to pass balloons out for their friends. So far you’d gotten a few from guys you didn’t know, balloons, teddy bears to chocolates in a box.
You were excited to see Stefan, you didn’t get to his locker yet but you were going to give him a candy gram and a heart shaped balloon that you blew up yourself in the school store.
the situation on bts’ colorism in the japanese magazine
this is a long post, however i believe theres lots to understand on this subject that cannot be dismissed. i have two disclaimers: first, please read until the end before criticizing because when i say i made an effort to include all views i mean it. second, there will be hetero references in this since the interview was about their ideal girl.. i apologize n i dont mean to assume their sexuality or anything.
there are three main parts to this; 1) lets understand the whole picture, 2) be fair and 3) for those who were hurt by the “interview” and to those who want to dismiss them (this is not patronizing, i really fucking sympathize here)
lets understand the whole picture
to begin, I’m pretty much positive they didn’t actually interview bts for the magazine… rather, they drew on old interviews for the magazine… i don’t think the members were actually involved in any way with this magazine specifically. there a few posts about this and i’ll like them, but the best was by @jkguks. they showed how each exact response was recycled from an old interview. the post can be found here. comments have also been made that this magazine is known for such moves in the past and that their credibility isn’t so great. @allforbts pointed out here that the magazine didnt have a photoshoot – they reused pictures from other sources – which probably indicates they didn’t have an actual interview; however this isn’t real evidence. in my own personal opinion i dont trust the person who posted the translations on twitter. yes the translations are correct as far as we all know, but what i mean is… i think she knew the interview was old/reused. everyone that asked about the interview’s date received no response from her. she even made a comment about how many followers shes gained. if she cleared up that the interview was old or reused then this whole thing would die out n she’d stop getting followers. anyway i find it suspicious but i could also just be reading too far into it. the whole point of this is that at this point we can pretty much conclusively say that the interview is recycled n this is not something they said recently. this is not to devalue the weight of their words because it still hurt a lot of people. old or new, getting told your skin color is “unideal” is painful. however we do wanna look at this because we at least now know that their status of “since educated on colorism and racism and now pretty pc/sensitive” is not going to be revoked! they’ve since educated themselves, that is still the truth. this is just the ugly past come to rear its head.
on the other end of understanding the whole picture, i’m going to make a sorta controversial statement. hopefully in fully explaining it, you all will get the full idea… but for the sake of k-armys who are getting attacked by intl fans constantly and also for the sake of perspective – which may lessen the blow of their words for those hurt by them – i need to say this. the concept of colorism is alive and well in korea… it just isn’t the same as it is in the west. in the west – for the most part – we are more ethnically/racially diverse while korea is almost entirely racially/ethnically homogeneous. so how does this effect the meaning of colorism? well because one of the largest identifiable traits when looking at the differences between the world’s races n ethnicities is skin color, race/ethnicity will always be tied to skin color, especially in really diverse areas. in the west where we are consistently exposed to different races/ethnicities as part of our daily lives, a preference of skin color holds not only colorist implications but also racist implications. if some mayo dude said “i think darker skin is ugly on girls” we can safely assume hes a racist fuck on top of being colorist. however, since korea is homogenous, there isnt any real racist implications. let me elaborate: korea has issues with being racist against other poc, however in an interview discussing ideal types where the ideal type is already assumed to be at the very basis korean (or maybe another east asian ethnicity if you’re stretching it), the statement on skin color is directed at people of their shared race. so how is this less problematic? it is still problematic definitely – i’d like to make this clear – but in korea, the concept of skin color amongst koreans as a beauty standard isnt racially or ethnically motivated and therefore its more akin to saying “i prefer blue eyes over brown eyes on white girls” because they’re discussing a physical variance within their own race. in the end, it’s still colorist, but please try to understand that in korea the remarks arent as horrible. they still shouldn’t say that, and really, any discussion of skin color preferences is ugly, but it’s extremely important to be considerate of korean culture. intl fans forget constantly that we are guests to korean culture. if you were invited to someones house you wouldnt bust in there feeling entitled n doing whatever the fuck you want. you’d try and respect their rules and how they run their home. if you had a problem with something there, you’d politely ask them to accommodate you, explaining why that accommodation was necessary. you wouldnt fucking trash them for not having their house already equipped to your preference. thats incredibly selfish. this is the same way. you are guests to this culture, and while you shouldnt allow colorism to continue, this theme of entitlement amongst intl fans – especially when we have done very little to respect their culture; we demand they understand ours while continually paying theirs no regard – is really shamefully. i ask that people reading this do their best to be more considerate in the future. not everything is black n white… lots of things have grey area and we can afford to be more socially conscious. im pretty sure most k-fans have it about up to here dealing with koreaboos criticizing their culture…
this is a short statement but i need to remind you all that most of the members were problematic in that interview and if you are only trashing namjoon you need to fucking stop. you are allowed to offended, of course – i was pretty bothered too seeing how im the opposite to namjoons ideal in every way, my bias who i’d fucking die for – but if your whole focus is “namjoon this and namjoon that” than youre being a biased ass and im gonna need you to sit down. if youre going to be mad, by all means, be mad, but dont fucking pretend the other members said nothing wrong. im sick of people pretending every member but namjoon is perfect and unproblematic. present day he’s probably the most un-problematic member since educating himself on racial issues, feminism, n lgbtq rights, making himself an advocate for them all while idols remain silent…. hmm…. but keeping pushing that “problematic member” agenda sure. yeah lets pretend the facts dont exist ok
for those who were hurt by the “interview” and to those who want to dismiss them
fans who read through the interview n realized they kinda fit their bias’ ideal type – esp in terms of skin color – please don’t make comments on how people need to “get over this”. for many fans, especially non light skinned poc, this really hurt. not only as a “i don’t fit my bias’ ideal type” but also as a betrayal of trust. many non light skinned poc have experienced some type of discrimination for their skin color and many had their sense of self confidence fucked over for it. its not just a “you dont think darker skin is beautiful, aw :(” its more of a, “you are someone i love and support and the fact that you’d call my skin color less attractive – the skin color for which i’ve had to struggle to find my own confidence in – just like so many others, feels like betrayal”. its really hurtful. so don’t be dismissive. you don’t understand. this isnt your discussion, im sorry.
and lastly, to the fans who were hurt by the interview. im sorry boo. im sorry that the industry you support continues to hurt you. im sorry someone you decided to love and support made you feel like that. please remember that the ideal type is such a flimsy concept. they really dont mean anything. those questions were grossly specific n they were so unnecessary, but at the end of the day, they are still made up preferences. the boys wouldn’t find you unattractive for not meeting the bits on their checklist – fuck no. attraction just doesnt work like that. no one falls in love with the person that hit everything on their little “ideal type” checklist. honestly, if you asked me to describe my ideal type n i just listed shit off the top of my head, it probably wouldnt add up to namjoon…. but in every way namjoon perfect to me. im fucking whipped. this is the same. dont take their ideals to heart, dont feel like anything on you needs to change. you are exactly the way you need to be, and dont ever let some guys “ideal type” make you feel any less. n if anyone every tries to tell you that you’re failing to meet their beauty standards… fucking kick them. fcuk them seriously. dont let this shit effect your self confidence. gross comments like that dont deserve a thought in your head
So I recently finished the complete works of Sappho and in the afterward–which was a ton of historical reference, literary analysis, and tribute writing about Sappho and her work– I found repeatedly that she was referred to by many as “The Manly Sappho of Lesbos” or just manly Sappho. Plus all physical descriptions of her say that she was short, dark skinned, had short hair, and was not very feminine or attractive.
So my point with all this is, Sappho was one of the first butch woman of color loving other women who didn’t conform to conventional beauty standards and I just am so much more grateful to have her as our sapphic saint after learning this.
So here's something i am really curious as a brazilian: How is Oscar Niemeyer's work perceived by foreign architects?
I can’t answer for all non-Brazilian architects, but for me, Niemeyer is one of the greats, and you can check out ARCHatlas’ (MANY) previous posts of his work here. His work is unique, sublime, sculptural, and colorful. How many architects have had the opportunity to create one of the great cities of the world from scratch and be able to impart such beauty to its core structures.
This is why I said I didn’t want to. With a surge of regret, my body was slowly sinking to the bottom of the pool. Was I going to die in this indoor Samezuka Academy pool, at this joint practice?
The cry of “Rei-chan!” I can hear from the poolside is slowly getting further away. It seems like I’ll lose consciousness soon. At times like this, it’s said that people see revolving lanterns. My the theory as for why a revolving lantern? It’s because the brain cells activate just before death, and so it’s the result of all the synapses firing together, and thus showing your state of mind. I’ll probably start seeing that revolving lantern any moment now. But still, If I were to die I at least wanted to die with a more beautiful appearance. Not while only wearing this speedo. It’s not beautiful.
Now that I think of it, my first memory is of something not beautiful. It was a cheeseburger from a fast food restaurant that was not beautiful. When faced with this cheeseburger that looked nothing like it’s picture in the menu, before even entering preschool I asked my mother why this cheeseburger was not beautiful. At that time, my mother said to me. “Rei, you’re really fussy.” It was completely unexpected for a child to hear. What’s wrong with being fussy? What’s wrong with having reasons for liking things, reasons they’re not good, having thoughts and logic about why you think those ways and being able to talk about it? Everyone in society decides things too casually. Too many people decide things without any particular reason, they just say ‘because everyone says that’s how it is’, or ‘that’s just the way it is’, and let it be. I couldn’t accept that.
For example, the colors used to denote girls and boys. Whether it’s on signs for bathrooms or anything else, it’s been determined that that boys are blue, and girls are red. It seems that long ago that even backpack colors were decided to be black for boys and red for girls. I think it’s all ridiculous. Why can’t a boy have red? Why can’t girls have black? For example, even when choosing the color of glasses frames, those same boring stereotypes are held. Early in elementary school, because I read too many books, my eyesight became bad and so I had to get glasses. My parents took me to the glasses store in the mall, and I chose a red glasses frame. I had fallen in love with the beauty of those red glasses in the showcase window at first sight. My parents and the shopkeeper tried to convince me I should get black or a metal frame instead. But I was determined and didn’t budge.
pphew! sorry for the late reply to these >.< i figured id just reply to all these in one post with some pics. Below are the watercolors i use and the the gold paints (keep in mind those pics i posted were like first attempts @_@ im still getting used to these…)
The water colors are Mjello Mission Gold Watercolors in the 34 tube set and the gold palette are the FineTec Artist Mica Watercolors in the Pearl set.
Now I’ll state first– both these sets are kinda pricey. The FineTec palette (about $27) is so worth it though because it comes in different golds and one tube of gold gouache is usually like $9 each or more depending on the amount of mica, so def worth the price and variety.
Below: from lightest to darkest on ivory tinted paper [Silver, Moon Gold, Gold Pearl, Arabic Gold, Tibet Gold, & Inca Gold] they look SUPER outstanding on black paper as well!
my fav is the richest one, the Inca Gold.
They are super nice, but if you plan on getting them, they are super HARD palettes! It’ll take a lot of scrubbing to get them activated and to have that nice gouache-like thickness, so if you don’t want to ruin your nice brushes, I def recommend getting some Ox Gall. Adding a drop or two of this will get them activated in no time, and with a nice opaque thickness. (the brand I have below they dont sell anymore, but other brands still make it)
As for the water colors, ehhh i feel weird cuz those vegetas were like my first attempts with this brand. Ive always used the Sakura Koi 24 color set palette because theyre super nice and super cheap (like $20) and Ive had them for years. I only got these because I wanted higher-grade watercolors in tubes. But they are very expensive, but for good reasons: they have a lot of pigment, which makes them so vibrant and bright and theyre designed to be very close to natural colors, not to mention theyre so SMOOTH when painting and they’ll probs last me forEVER because you get so much color with very little water.
(opera is best color IMHO) here’s a color chart I made (that took FOREVER btw) to give you an idea how beautiful they are and how many nice colors they make
so yea! those are the paints I used for those particular pics. Course if you would like a nice, cheap watercolor recommendation that works pretty well, Sakura Koi’s are a fantastic substitute. …..SORRY IF THIS WAS LONG i just akdfhalkfhd i like talking about traditional media..lol. hope this was at least a little informative >.< if anyone has questions or wants some recommendations (while also saving some money) feel free to ask! I’ll help in any way i can with what i know, cuz despite posting mostly digital art, I am a traditional art supply FANATIC.
Warnings: Poor Ivar, the water always trying to murder him
Traveling across the ocean was without a doubt the worst part about England, why did it have to be so damn far away? Ivar ground his teeth in frustration. By all accounts he should be laying down, enjoying the still night. The lack of wind did him no favors in the long run but there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, only the full pale moon glittering off the smallest ripples. He should be like the rest of the men and women, sleeping. After his first voyage however, every little shift and sound and creak put him on edge, not to mention this uncomfortable feeling at the back of his neck of being watched.
Cleaning his nails with the very tip of his knife, he began to hum, starting out quiet as to not wake the others. As he felt slightly more and more calmed by it, he began singing the words, a deep hymn usually sung to keep formation, helping put him in any other place than on the ocean. Yet the feeling of being watched wouldn’t drift, instead it got stronger. Glancing around, no one stirred or seemed awake, but Ivar couldn’t shake the feeling. His volume drifted till it was back to a whisper, trying so hard to push away the feeling.
Ivar sat up straight, his back rigid as he searched for the voice. Behind him, he found you, this woman rested on the boats rim, smiling pleasantly. You were a vision so fine and so lavished in jewels and shells he scarcely believed what he was seeing was real. Ivar’s reason told him you needed to get out and on the boat as soon as possible, his instinct however, felt like he was staring down the jaws of a starving wolf.
Summary: Everyone has a soulmate, and there is one color that they can’t see until they meet their soulmate, and that is the color of their soulmate’s eyes. For Charles Xavier, this is difficult, because his powers have filled in the blanks, and he can see all colors. He assumes that he’ll just know when he finds his soulmate. Should be easy for a telepath, right?
Warnings: Angst maybe? definitely
A/N: And here is the much-requested part 2! I an shocked by the response to this story. Based on notes it’s my most popular one so far! Thank you so much! Hope y’all like it! Sorry it took so long! Let me know what you think!
A/N: This was written during the Write-In hosted by the incomparable @lepus-arcticus, and it is literally nothing but fluff and ridiculousness.
Their third week together, Mulder tosses something at her as she walks in the door. She ducks and barely catches it, shooting him a scowl when some coffee sloshes on her plaid blazer.
“What’s this?” Scully asks.
“I noticed you didn’t have one. I know you probably didn’t have use for one in sunny Califor-Nay-Yay, but for most of the climates we’ll be travelling to for our field work, especially in the Pacific Northwest and here on the East Coast, they’re going to come in handy.”
Scully finally glances down.
It’s a London Fog catalogue.
“What, you have something against them?”
“Not really, but they’re a little…Spy versus Spy, aren’t they? What, are we gonna get matching hats to go with them? Start talking like gangsters? ‘You’ll never catch me, Coppa?’” she says before biting off a smile.
“Nah, these are really nice. They’re weather resistant, they keep the chill off, and they’ll keep your suits nice and clean. They even come in size extra petite, or whatever you are. I checked.”
Scully thumbs through the catalogue, fretting. “Mulder, don’t you think an umbrella does most of those things just as efficiently? And I have thicker peacoats I can wear over my suits. I just don’t know that I’ll use it enough to justify the expense.”
Mulder takes a sip of his coffee, shrugging. “Just pick one out then and tell me which one you decide on. I got a guy back in the UK. He’ll ship it over to me. No import tax.”
She stares at him before flipping through the glossy pages again. She has to admit, some of them do have a certain appeal. Especially that camel-colored one.
“I just think that this whole aesthetic lends itself to some excessively grandiose concept of what a G-man should look like that you have built up in your head, Mulder,” Scully says, indignant that she’s actually considering this. “That dark trench you have, it’s like your cape and cowl. Maybe it’s more your thing than mine.”
“Then get a lighter one, Scully. I really think it’d be both functional and…becoming on you.”
“There’s a pick-up line I can sense coming that you should probably keep to yourself,” Scully murmurs, just loud enough for him to hear and smirk at.
She finally pauses on one page with an audible intake of breath. It’s beautiful. A lighter color, halfway between wheat and grey. The perfect neutral. Cinched waist, double-breasted, it even comes with a detachable hood.
Shiro and Keith took things slow as they promised and even started courting Lance the right way, bringing him small gifts of things they collected from the planets they saved. They were sweet and respectful with him,and always tried to be attentive to never overpass any of Lance’s boundaries.
Of course, things weren’t that easy. Lance was still hurt and some days, even when the alphas were trying their best, it just wasn’t enough for the omega. Shiro and Keith had bad days too. The anger and guilt just becoming too much for them to handle, making them snap at each other resulting in awful fights. Sometimes they avoid Lance, afraid of snapping at him too. But this only made the omega angry, because they were only doing exactly what they promised not to do.
Three months passed before they could find a balance in their relationship. Too many tears were shed in the process, and they yelled to each other too many times to count.
They experienced many things together. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Shiro and Keith brokedown a few times, thinking they weren’t good alphas and didn’t deserve anyone. Lance sometimes thought it was better to give everything up.
But everything was worth it in the end.
Lance trusted his alphas more, and this time he could finally say that he felt a part of them. Keith and Shiro were… Simply amazing with him. What they had now it was completely different than before. This was real, they truly cared. Even his friends could see the change.
It wasn’t 2 + 1, it was 3.
But, even when they were in a much better place now and Lance could see the alphas loved him as much as he loved them, they still had a little something they needed to resolved.
The alphas were getting worried. They had been searching for Lance for the last 20 minutes with no success. At first they were only curious about the whereabouts of their mate, but as more time passed, the worry only grew in them.
He wasn’t hanging out with Pidge or Hunk or Blue, and he wasn’t cleaning with Coran or talking with the Pirncess.
Now, they were totally ok with Lance doing whatever he wanted with in his free time and not giving them any explinations. But the castle wasn’t exactly safe. They have had intruders before, and let’s not forget when the castle was haunted once.
So yes, Shiro and Keith were a bit worried. They needed to see if their mate was safe and sound. And there was a place they haven’t checked yet.
The alphas could hear music from Lance’s room in the halls. Shiro felt relief, ‘We should’ve come here in the first place’, he thought.. Keith rapidly went and knock the door. But the omega never opened.
“He can’t hear us, the music is too loud. Maybe we should leave?”
“But what if he fell? And he’s hurt? Or what if he’s sad and that’s why he’s here on his own?” Keith said with a frown. Shiro sighed, and put a hand on Keith’s shoulder. He always thought the worst about every sitaution thanks to his anxiousness.
“He’s ok, Keith. Maybe he wants space.” But he knew the younger alpha, he needed to see their lover by himself. “Let’s go and say hi, ok?”
Shiro put his hand on the wall and activate a little panel. He pushed some buttons and after a few seconds the door opened. Lance didn’t hear them going in. He was to focus on his current task.
Keith just raised an eyebrows in confusion. The smell in Lance’s room was sweet and made his mouth water, but he couldn’t understand what the omega was doing. Even when he felt a strange need to go and grab the omega to lay on his bed and cuddle, he couldn’t get why he had so many things there. The place looked quite messy and Lance was doing the opposite of cleaning..
Shiro looked at Lance with tenderness when he realised what the omega was doing. He was trying his best to make his nest as big and comfortable as possible. It was pretty, to be honest. Plain, since the pillows and sheets of the castle were only white. But pretty in his own way. Or maybe it was Shiro’s alphaness talking.
Shiro also managed to see a few of his and Keith’s shirts on Lance’s bed. He smiled.
“Oh, so that’s where my favorite shirt is.”
Shiro’s voice brought Lance back to reality. He turned around and looked at the alphas with wide eyes. Shiro’s sweet smile made his heart jump with happiness, but when he saw Keith’s expression… His eyes filled with tears and he went into full defensive mode.
“Get out. ” His voice was cold, and it took them completely by surprise.
“I said get out! Get out of my room!” He threw one of his pillow at them. “I want him out!” Lance pointed at Keith and the alpha looked hurt and confused. Did he do something to upset his mate?
“Baby, what’s wrong?” Shiro asked putting himself in between his two lovers.
“He destroyed my nest!” Lance was crying now. He looked so sad that Shiro felt his heart shrinking at the sight.
Keith felt awful. He had hurt his mate? But how? “But, but i never–?” He was stuttering.
‘Not again, please i promised not to hurt and i did it again oh my god.’
“You did! You destroy my nest! And i didn’t even give you permission to see it last time! Now you both are here, and you will destroy it again!”
“Lance, baby, relax. Nobody will touch your nest. Do you want us to get out? We can talk about this on the halls.” Lance only shook his head. He looked angry now. “Ok, ok, what if you both talk about this? I’m sure Keith didn’t mean to do it? Maybe it’s a mistake? ” He prayed it was a misunderstanding. Becuase destroying an omega’s nest, their omega’s nest, was something he wouldn’t forgive so easily. “Keith?”
The alpha jumped and looked at Shiro with worry. “I, i don’t know? i don’t remember destroying a nest?”
“You destroyed mine! You came into my room, moved everything from its place, took your sheets and then left!”
Keith’s eyes opened with surprise. Oh no, he remembered now.
“Oh my God, that was your nest? Lance, oh God i’m so sorry–!”
“Are you saying my nest is ugly?! That’s why you destroyed it?!” Keith shook his head trying to find the words. No, this was wrong.
Shiro saw Keith confused for a moment, how could he not realised it was a nest? Unless–
“Lance wait! Keith truly didn’t know it was a nest! Your nest!” Of course, how could he forget?
“How could he not know?!”
“Because i grew up in a house full of alphas! I never had any omega friends before you! My mom… She left when i was very young. And the only friends i had while growing up were alphas and betas.”
“But you learnt about nests in school!” Lance said still looking angry.
“Lance, i was home school before attending to the Garrison… And in the Garrison we never had classes about AOB dynamics because we were supposed to know that already.” Now it was turn for the ometa to started at him with surprise.
“… Oh. That… Actually… makes so much sense.” He said after a few seconds.
“Yeah… I never meant to do that to your nest… I know it’s not a good excuse… But i never saw a nest before yours? I just thought your bed smelled pretty and that i wanted to cuddle there, but i thought i was tired. Not instincs talking, you know?”
Lance sighed and tried to clear the tears from his face. “So, you’re not an asshole. Just an idiot… That’s good to know.”
“Hey!” Keith’s face was red and Shiro was smiling.
“No, but really. This explains a lot. You are an awkward alpha. That’s why you were so weird when we met. You whole existence makes so much sense now!” Shiro was fully laughing now and Keith punched him completely embarrased. Lance joined the laughter and Keith just groaned, looking at his boyfriends having fun with the whole situation.
“Well, are you done laughing at me?” He asked them with a frown. “I want to make it up to you Lance… I feel shitty for making you feel like that. Even when i know very little about nests, i know they are a really big deal to omegas. So… Tell what can i do to try to fix this.” Keith looked serious with this and Lance looked at him for a few seconds before answering.
“You don’t need to do–”
“Of course i need to do something. You were really upset about it. So it’s important to you. Let me fix my mistake.” The omega jumped a little surprised by how committed Keith seemed. He shared a looked with Shiro, who only gave him a soft smile and shrug.
“Just… Let us help with your nest? We can try to bring you things if you need.” Offered the older alpha.
“Oh… That actually sounds like a good idea.”
“Ok, then it’s settled! We can get you more blankets if you like?”
“Actually, i want pillows. So many pillows! I mean, there’s three of us, right? “He said with a blush on his cheeks. Maybe his alphas weren’t allowed to go into his nest before, but now that everything was cleared out he couldn’t wait to have them near to him. The alphas eyes shined and nodded with enthusiasm. "Ok! Go to Allura’s room and steal some of her pillows. She has the comfiest ones in the whole castle.”
Lance’s nest was… Beautiful.
Maybe it wasn’t colorful, or had the finest sheets in the whole galaxy. But it was comfy, and the best of all? He had his two beautiful alphas sleeping by his side.
They had… a bad beggining, and what they lived together was not a love story. It was sad and cruel, and things got really ugly before they could even phanthom having a future together. But Lance gave them a chance, and Shiro and Keith did their best every single day to prove him how much they cared for him.
“I love you… ” Shiro whispered.
“I love you.” Keith said after him, giving Lance a little kiss on the lips.
No, the path Lance choose was not an easy one. But they all made their best efforts to make their relationship work. To build something beautifuil, healthy and full of love.
No, they weren’t perfect. They were all human, after all. But they gave their everything and their love for each other was real.
“I love you too, guys.”
And for Lance this was enough.
IT’S OFICIALLY FINISHED! AKSJDHASKJHSAKDH
Oh god, i’m so happy i did this chapter! Hope you like this guys! Also, do you know how hard it is to write when you dog decides to sleep on your lap with their head resting on your hand? Yeah, not an easy thing to do. Well, whatever.
Please leave some comments! Feedback is my fuel! And i want say again how happy i am and grateful for the love this au recieved! ♥ i love you all!
Could you do a merman Rafe and human Sam!! Like Rafe would find Sam rlly cute and he'd cup his face because he never saw a human before and he find him so interesting ansjjfkfj your art is sooo pretty!!
It’s been a while since I drew req art here… Although I decided that I don’t accept free requests, this time I have a few things that I wanna say. So this’s a special case.
*After this, if the ask message only about free art request reaches me, I can’t accept it, maybe I’ll ignore. I wanna talk. plz give me a talking theme. lol I can draw doodles in line with a theme. If you want me to draw an art of your idea, plz order me with commission. That would make me delighted.
At first, thank you for praising my art! I said many times, I’m not good at English speaking and reading. Do you think that I can understand this req? > Anonymous And most Japanese ( incruide me ) aren’t good at thinking as this romantic situation. Everytime I’m surprised when I read req messages. It’s so romantic. ( I always draw only funny Rafe, Am I allowed to draw this? lol ) Color of Rafe’s eyes is so pale and he is a little expressionless ( everytime smirking ). so I think that he has a mood of not-human, very fantastic. hehe.
Here is my final product. This is a picture of Antisepticeye 💚
The original picture was a digital drawing by Page250Jane on YouTube and Twitter. Please go subscribe to her on YouTube! She does amazing artwork on livestreams, and awesome Anti and/or Dark AMVs! All of her artwork is on her Twitter, including the original digital drawing of what I drew, and it’s beautiful.
I decided to draw her original, but change a few things, such as hands, colors, mouth, and other small things, but this concept is all her, so I won’t take credit for anything except for the fact that I did draw and color all that is shown in this picture.
With that now out of the way, I’m very proud of what I did here. It took four days to finish, and I’m so happy with the outcome.
The hands are mine; I had to take so many weird pictures to get the angle correct. Skin tone was hell. Colored pencils aren’t the easiest to work with because once you put down a color, you can’t really go back, so highlighting was a bitch. I had to leave the parts I wanted to highlight void of color until I was ready to highlight, which was very difficult, but worth it in the end.
I’m thankful to Jane for this inspiration to draw again, and I’m so thankful to @therealjacksepticeye for being such an amazing, sweet, lovable person. 💚💙
WIND-UP AS’THOLA: “It is unknown who was the creator of this miniturized figure of the famous goldsmith. Many rumors say that it was commissioned by a great fan of hers, whom had seen her passing by in the Ul'dahn streets with her kittens in tow. While nearly identical to her persona, As'htola is perplexed how the artist had found sapphires so close to her eye color.”
Will occasionally: - Tinker with a piece of metal if given - Curl up with her tail - Sit near any source of warmth - Hug any form of Wind-Up Ryuki, liking to her husband

nonnie requested: Can you do the second before last pulled point in eye
color with Barry please???
You will be able to see the world
in full color once you meet your soulmate but until then, you can only see the
world in the eye color of your soulmate. However, you can alter the color your
soulmate can see, for example, by wearing contact lenses. Like if you wear blue
contact lenses, your soulmate sees the world in blue, purple makes them see the
world in purple and etc. And you realize each day/week you get to see the world
in a different color because your soulmate is being all cute and would want you
to see every color there is and they probably have a huge collection of contact
lenses by the time you both meet.
A/N: Here is the first soulmate request that I chose randomly to start with. Now I may
not get all your requests done by the weekend but I’ll try my best to get at
least 2-3 including this one done before then. Thank you for requesting since I
was kind of stuck on what else to write on. And Barry is the one whom shows you
all the colors until you meet because let’s be honest, he’s that big of a dork
and we love it. Warning of OFC death and will stuff. Requests are open unless
stated otherwise by me.

You remember when you were a kid that you saw green
with flecks of brown, apparently those were your soulmate colored eyes. It was
a nice green and your parents thought it was like your soulmate had summer
green that was full of life and bright. But as you grew older, your eye sight
suddenly would change color. One day you woke up to see a gorgeous stale blue
in your eyesight and remembered that you could alter colors by contacts. You weren’t
one for going in the trouble to wear but it seemed your soulmate did. For the
next few years, you had seen many colors that ranged from flecks of orange to a
dark indigo that changed every few weeks. It seemed so sweet of your soulmate to
show you all the colors that the world may have to offer you but there was only
so much contacts.
Today was a gray tone with small flecks of a bright
blue and it seemed to be fitting to your mood. You had flown in from your state
to Central City where your great aunt, Opal died, sure you didn’t know her very
well but she seemed to left you something in her will so you decided to stay.
Not yet meeting your soulmate made you more upset, you wished you had their shoulder
to cry on. You put on your black dress that your mother helped picked out with
you and shoes. You weeped while the preacher spoke, you couldn’t help it as you
always hated death. It was such a cruel but harsh reality that it happens when
you might least expect it.
You had inherited her home and money apparently, it
seemed your mother was the only one whom really had contact with your great
aunt. And Opal thought it be best for you to have her home since your mother did
live in Central City as a girl but in Opal’s will stated that you need the home
to raise your family. That made you laugh a little as your father wanted some
grandkids and once you meet your soulmate that is. You hoped that they would
want kids, you always had dreamed of getting married and having child(ren) of
your own. And that you managed to get your things over to your new home and completely
Nevertheless your eyes changed color again to a new
color you have never seen before, a shade of F/C as you walked into Jitters
until you bumped into someone. “Oh! Sorry!” You says as the burnet, wait did
you just see brown hair? This meant you saw colors as the other glanced at you
with F/C contacts in his eyes as he stared in shock for a moment. Soon his
colors were seen too and smiled at you, “No i-it’s okay. Really uh, hi I’m
Barry. Barry Allen.” He offered his hand to yours as you shook it, “Y/N. Y/N
L/N. It’s nice to finally meet you.”
You smiled softly at him as he gave a dorky
grin back at, he was finally happy to have you in his life. His other half and
he laughed softly while you furrowed your eyebrows. “You know Y/N. I have probably
the biggest collection of eye contacts.” You nodded, “I’d assumed since I saw
so many colors. I just wonder how much exactly.” Barry shook his head, “One too
many. Joe shook his head and said it was a waste of time and money. But come on
I’ll show you them if you’d want.” You agreed as you went with Barry and was rather
surprised by so many in the case while he took of F/C contacts out.
As you looked to see the summer green with brown flecks
like your parents had told you about while he looked into your E/C. “I think you
have the most beautiful eyes Y/N. .”
frankly speaking, I have a love-hate relationship with these notebooks, but I guess love does trump hate bc I ordered them and am pretty excited to test them out! okay, so I love these notebooks because of their simple design and freedom of which you can design it yourself, but these notebooks only have 30 sheets! so, probably not ideal for school, hence why I had to buy so many of them, and let’s say it did not come cheap lol (at least for me). I bought it for $9 (per a pack of 5 notebooks) off amazon, but had to purchase multiple packs, so the price was bit steep. I would recommend it to those who plan to use it for recreational purposes! for students who just love the aesthetic and build of the notebook, go ahead and buy it, but make sure the price is worth it. these notebooks come in multiple sizes/types. I bought the B5 muji notebooks, however, they also come in A5, A4, B6, B4, etc.
pilot juice pens
I just ordered a 36 pack, but I’m splitting it with my sister since I wanted to save money. I’ve used these pens before and love the free flow of the ink and how it works with various handwriting styles! they come in so many different colors and shades making it fun to experiment with! I bought them off of amazon for $30 I believe (but technically payed $15).
I remember being obsessed with using these when my friend had bought a pack and honestly I still am. these fineliners are so beautiful and really thin in terms of the tip (.3mm). they come in various shades depending on what pack you get. there’s the pastel set, 10 pack, 20 pack, 36 pack, etc. all coming at various prices, however, they are not the cheapest, nor the most expensive. I may buy some eventually, and they sell on amazon for $7-$35 depending on which pack you purchase.
kokuyo campus notebooks
okay if i being honest here I used to abhor the design of these notebooks but after checking them out and doing my research I found myself falling in love with them. they are a bit more expensive than muji, nonetheless they’re still worth it. I plan on buying them when I have money (rip wallet) or maybe just solely sticking to muji notebooks. you can find them on amazon for about $10-$11 per pack of 10 notebooks.I know that @studyquill uses these notebooks, so go ahead and check out her posts and videos if you’d like a better insight on them!
*starts drooling* these backpacks are just so…so…aesthetic. for lack of a better word. however, aesthetic shouldn’t be the only role that plays into it, and it sure isn’t. these backpacks have amazing quality in terms of build and can last for years. they come in various colors giving you many options to fit your style. however, and you may want to prepare your wallet for this, its cost ranges from $80-$150 (or even more from what I’ve seen). amazon sells these for pretty good prices, most of the classic ones costing $80, so save up your money if you’re looking to buy one ;)
washi tape has so many different uses! use it as you would any tape, or for decorating your bullet journal, notes, etc. they’re really pretty and come in various designs. in terms of pricing, the more “flashy” the design is, the more expensive they get, but they range from $2-$15 dollars (also depends on how many rolls per pack). I’m thinking about buying these, but I don’t have a real purpose for it yet, besides maybe decorating my binders with it.
lihit lab pencil case
i just purchased this online at amazon for about $10, but it takes such a long time to come!!! i won’t be getting it until school starts, so rip (lol). i love how efficient it is, in terms of space for so many items, and the design is really nice too. the price is really good for me and…yeah! haha. oh! they also come in multiple versions/colors, fitting various styles.
I actually just ordered these and plan to do a swatch/review on them, but what convinced me to buy these were the wide range of colors and the fact that they’re double sided (highlighters and markers), so I was like a 2 in 1? yes! (I need to save all the money I can get lol) I bought 3 packs (yellow, blue, and pink) for $14.88 on amazon. the prices are pretty good, but try not to buy all 4 at the same time because some sellers charge $40-$50 for it (helll naaaaw, too broke for that). make sure to scope out good deals!
hope you guys liked this post! s/o to anybody who saw me accidently post an unfinished version of it on my main blog lol. inbox/hit me up with an ask on what you’d like me to make next. also, some original content comin’ up with my notes, and study space, and other stuff (haha)
Waves of regret wash over me as my body sinks heavily to the bottom of the pool.
Am I going to die here, in the Samezuka indoor pool during a joint practice?
The shouts of “Rei-chan!” from the side of the pool get gradually further and further away. My consciousness feels like it could disappear at any moment.
They say you’re supposed to see a light at times like this. The theory of the light. When you’re close to death, all your brain cells become active, and as a result of all those synapses firing all at once, you see a bright light. I suppose it won’t be long before I see that light too.
That aside, if I’m going to die here, I wish I could have died a bit more beautifully. Why did I have to be wearing nothing but a speedo, of all things! Not beautiful.
Now that I think about it, my very first memory that I can remember was of something not beautiful as well.
It was a gross looking cheeseburger from a fast food place. When I saw that the burger looked completely different from the picture on the menu, little me, not even old enough to enter kindergarten, finally asked my mother why the cheeseburger was so ugly.
In those days, my mother often said to me, “Rei, you’re very argumentative, aren’t you?”
Even as a child, that was vexing.
Why is it wrong to be argumentative? What’s wrong with thinking about the reasons you think certain things, and why you like and dislike certain matters, and debating them? In this world, everyone is too vague. They often decide to do things for no reason, or because “I said so,” or “thats just the way it is.” I could never understand that.
For example, the colors they use to denote gender.
On toilet signs, it’s always blue for boys and red for girls.
In the past, it seems even backpack colors were black for boys and red for girls. It’s absurd. Why can’t boys have red? Why can’t girls have black?
The color of glasses frames are another example of where this arbitrary social practice applies. When I was in the lower grades of elementary school, I read too many books, and my eyesight began to decline, so I had to get glasses. When my parents took me to the department store to buy the glasses, I selected a pair of red frames. I fell in love with those beautiful frames that decorated the stand at first sight, but both my parents and the salesperson recommended I get plain black plastic frames. I did not yield.
AN:// Hello!!! omg guys thx so much for all the support on part 1!! cute as a button, each and every one of you :)) sooooo here’s part two,, I really hope you like it and feedback is alwayz appreciated! much love <3
Warnings: Swearing and mentions of sex (you’ll be fine kids)
“You ready to go?” Ethan asked, peering over my shoulder to look at the documents I was shuffling through.
“Just one sec.” The whole scene that happened earlier still the only thing I could think about. I was so angry at Lauren. Only she could evoke this kind of response out of me, you know, considering everything that has happened between us in the past. Always wanting to start drama for entertainment purposes, and not caring who she hurts or humiliates in the process.
Just in the past few hours, I’ve been treated differently by my co-workers. The news of Ethan and I “dating” spread like wildfire and everyone knew. The people I see and talk to everyday now staring at me and whispering, as if they’re totally clueless to the fact that I can hear them.
“Poor girl, he’s only going to break her heart,” they say.
