InkTober 03 - Discovery Husbands

Inspired by this post, I wanted to draw Jim and Spock in their places during the Discovery time period.

If you think I’m gonna draw each individual delta shield on this monstrosity of a uniform, though, you’re out of your Vulcan mind.

Hey guys, I hope everyone is having a nice Thursday :) Just as a heads up, it’s going to take a few extra days for me to finish the new update. It’s been an unusually busy week and progress has been slower than normal. I’m working as fast as I can, but you know me - I don’t like to compromise quality, because you guys deserve the best experience possible. So yeah, thank you in advance for your patience, I sincerely appreciate it <3

I finally finished making my engineer character, she’s an ocean jasper named Cherry and she’s got a shield. She doesn’t really fight much though.

I’m really relieved to have a final design and reference sheet for her cuz for some reason I had more trouble with her design than any of the other crew members >.>’

I got accepted on the spot after my audition for this study abroad program YA GIRL IS GOING TO LONDON TO STUDY AT THE GLOBE! I’m so happy, Shakespeare owns my ass right now 

Ironheart

Once upon a time, for that is how these tales always begin, there was a boy and a girl attending Elsewhere University.

The boy was possessed of a clever mind and a craftsman’s hand, and could make numbers rise up and dance across the pages to build magnificent things. His words would catch in his throat, until he began to speak of the precise and abstract beauty of the world, whereupon his voice turned to leaping silver. While he was certainly not the wisest in the university, he was among them, and was always willing to lend a helping hand to any who struggled to make the numbers dance as he did. We do not say his name. 

The girl was called Miranda, and she was light of foot and spoke words of honeyed gold. Her passion was performance, weaving a tale of magic with her voice and her dance. She was pleasing to many, students and…others alike, and many came seeking her hand. However, she spurned them all, saying “I will keep my heart until I find one who can make it dance as my feet do.“ 

One day, Miranda came to the boy as he studied, seeking help with numbers, for her skill was in the curve of extended legs and arms rather than ink on paper. He gave her what help he could offer, freely and without favor owed. In his knowledge, he explained the curves to her in ways she knew well - the shape described by an outstretched arm’s spin, the speed gained and lost from a leap - and she learned well. She thanked him, and both returned to their own work. A few days later, she returned with more questions, and once more he helped her freely. She returned again and again, and he always offered his help as he would to anyone, until one day he requested one thing in exchange - a kiss. She smiled, and traded it willingly, as her heart danced over the stage he’d constructed of paper and numbers.

For a time, all was well. The boy continued to offer his help freely, and if he did so less often, then who could truly blame him? Miranda’s dancing never faltered - if anything, it grew more quick and beautiful than ever before, as she dreamed of dancing in the stage the boy had built. When their days swung them close to each other, they’d sit together, and the boy would draw and redraw every corner of the stage as Miranda offered suggestions - lower the light beam, or a few more feet on the right wing, or set the curtain forward a bit. Those who had been spurned by Miranda before were jealous, but only in the way of all those refused by the object of their affections, and kept quietly to themselves. All, that is, except for one.

We do not know the name of the Spurned, and nobody wishes to. Filled with hatred and madness, he swore that if he could not have Miranda, then neither should the boy. He struck a bargain with the Gentry, offering anything and everything for them to take Miranda to Elsewhere. In the end, he traded away his name to give them hers. He remained, broken and too mad to speak; Miranda was Taken, suddenly and without warning. Only the boy remained, but not entirely. Something of him had left with Miranda, whatever it is in a human heart that allows one to laugh and enjoy life. Numbers would no longer dance under his hands, and the stage he had so lovingly crafted was nothing more than a tormenting reminder of her. In the end, he was as mad as the Spurned, but with grief rather than hatred. In his madness, he struck his own bargain with the Gentry, trading his own name for them to return Miranda. The Gentry happily returned her body. Her name remained with them, sealed in a bottle with that of the Spurned and the boy, and without her name she was but a shell that could never dance again.

The boy had always been somewhat mad - mad with numbers before the University, mad with love after he met Miranda, and mad with grief when she was taken. But now a new madness rose within him - the madness of someone with nothing left to lose. He poisoned himself with iron, swallowing it until it tore his innards, piercing himself with cold rings of it, and choking his skin with iron paint. Armored in cold iron and armed with desperate fury, he followed the sound of his name to Elsewhere. Nobody can say what happened in the Elsewhere then - the Gentry do not speak of it, and the boy could never speak of anything again. Regardless of what happened, he came stumbling out of the forest the next morning as the sun rose, bleeding iron-rich blood and with iron shards torn in his flesh, carrying a bottle of names. He staggered to the room where the shell of Miranda stayed, and laid his head beside her, and whispered to her two names - hers, and his own. He died then, with a smile on his lips, and Miranda cradled him in mourning.

They tried to send the boy’s body away from the University, for even in death his body was anathema to them. But Miranda refused, and there were many who saw his acts and stood with her. He was buried in a too-small pine box on the outskirts of the University grounds, without a proper headstone - only a small piece of marble, weathered blank almost too quickly for nature. In substitute, however, someone - perhaps Miranda, perhaps not - planted an apple tree on his grave. The tree is now weathered, beaten and battered; heavy snows have broken branches, lightning has struck it more than once, and wind has torn leaves and sticks from it many times. Despite this, though, it still grows strong and proud, producing apples every year. 

We do not know the boy’s name. It was only whispered to Miranda, and she could never bring herself to give it away. The tree’s name is known, though. It is called Ironheart, and it is a custom to work on your math or physics homework in its shade. They say that it will do its best to help you - in all things.

Sorry for the delay y’all quq

There’s two reasons for this, one: it’s getting close to that time of year (finals) and so I am working towards that. Two: I was working on a comic that was particularly long when I accidentally clicked “don’t save” and lost the whole damn thing. 

So here have these I did to get my motivation back so I can restart that comic again QUQ Also last I checked I had 265 followers, I’ve never expected so many people to tune into my story about a guy with a literal die for a head.

It’s my birthday, and remember what that means? I post extra shippy/schmaltzy art for myself cause I’m old and I do what I want, so tadaa~ 

I didn’t forget my other favorites, either but they already have several pages of my tumblr dedicated to them so they can wait

sometimes a hug is all we need

HEADCANONS: SHATT FT. KEITH

- Shiro grew up in Japan for most of his life (because let’s face it, why else would he use his last name?)

- But he moved away to attend the Garrison and that’s where he met Matt

- The two were roommates and the first time Shiro met Matt, the entire room was filled with parts and Matt looked like he hadn’t showered in days (Matt had come earlier because his dad worked at the Garrison)

- This was the start of a beautiful friendship (and the start of Space Dad)

- Matt, being the piece of shit he was, would prank other cadets and even some teachers, and then hide under his bed

- Shiro, being the good friend he was, would always make up an alibi for Matt 

- Like “oh, we’re studying for this killer exam. Oh Matt? he went to get some snacks. he left a minute ago, i’m timing it”

- Somehow, everyone believed him

- After graduating, they would sometimes go to local schools to recruit kids

- This is where Shiro met Keith

- Keith, unsurprisingly, wanted to join 

- But he didn’t exactly like Shiro

- It took one summer camp before starting at the Garrison and one successful attempt at sneaking into one of the simulation rooms before Keith began to properly talk to him

- After that, Keith would kinda just seek Shiro out whenever he knew Shiro was free

- Matt called them “a single dad and his son”

- Keith was super confused, not because Matt was calling Shiro his dad but because

- “if Shiro’s my dad, does that mean you’re my dad too?”

- Matt choked on air and Shiro looked away

- Both were pretty red

- Like Keith’s jacket red

- “why would you think that?” 

- “because you act like it.”

- Needless to say, Matt didn’t recover for a week 

- Keith was worried he’d offended Matt with his subpar socialization

- But when he told Shiro, Shiro said “he’s processing”

- Next week, Matt was shouting something about shared custody and “dammit Shiro, we have to raise our son right”

- Shiro acted like he wasn’t affected but he was totally a flustered mess inside

- Keith acted all scowly but he was actually really open to the thought of family

- Speaking of Keith’s jacket, it was Shiro who bought it for him

- See the thing is, when Keith blushes, he really blushes

- Like his whole face turns red, up to his ears, and it’s not like the ugly tomato kind either

- No, no, no, it’s the really cute kind of bright red blush

- So, when Shiro and Matt were on like a friend date, where they kinda just hung out but flirted all the same

- (Because Matt believed they should also take care of their friendship but it was actually just a way to spend more time with Shiro)

- And Keith wasn’t there because he was studying

- Matt sees this really funny t-shirt and drags Shiro inside the store

- “i have to have that shirt! i just have to”

- And so while Matt is arguing with this girl who wants the same shirt, Shiro wanders off and sees this really bright red in his peripheral vision

- So he walks up to it and thinks of Keith.

-  It’s right before Kerberos too

-  Because Keith is there at the Garrison for a year and a half before he gets kicked out

- And Shiro’s known Keith for about a year and a three quarters, or around two years

- Keith’s 17th birthday is also coming up

- (Let’s pretend Garrison is roughly five years, Voltron is set in the future, and thus, 11th and 12th grade are usually set aside for college like some countries in the world do it)

- So on impulse, he buys it and heads outside to wait for Matt

- Turns out, Matt didn’t get the shirt and it was supposed to be for Keith

- So Matt drags Shiro to another store after he finds that Shiro already has Keith’s gift

- “i refuse to lose my title as best dad in the world”

- “sometimes i think you’d be better suited for best cool uncle in the world”

- Anyway, Matt ends up buying Keith a book on cryptids

- When they give it to Keith, the poor kid looks like he might cry

- But then he like crosses his arms, looks away, and mutters a barely hearable “thanks”

- Matt hugs him really hard after that

- Also, remember when I said Shiro was from Japan

- Yeah, well this plays a huge part for this next part

- It happens randomly, like the three of them are watching an anime movie that Matt really likes

- And Shiro just comes to this realization

- “you guys never call me Takashi”

- “yeah but i thought in japanese culture only really close people could use first names?”

- and Keith nods, even though he’s half-asleep

- And Shiro thinks, ‘but we’re really close aren’t we?’

- This is after Matt basically adopts Keith and Keith all but matchmakes his dads

- So he’s like “call me Takashi”

- And now, you’re wondering, if Keith has permission to call Shiro by his first name, why doesn’t he do it?

- Simple answer: Matt

- Complicated answer: Keith doesn’t think it’s right for him to call Shiro by his first name if Matt isn’t there

- And Keith’s thinking is kind of strange too

- Because he’s like “well, Matt’s equally or probably more important and he’s not there and he was the first person to call Takashi by his first name so”

- But he refers to Shiro as Takashi in his head

- He slips up sometimes and for some reason, Shiro becomes really happy

- Poor Keith doesn’t realize that Shiro wants him to call him by his first name

- And the first time Keith calls him Shiro when Shiro is awake, the man nearly has a heart attack because he thinks Keith’s mad at him 

- Or that Shiro failed him somehow

- Once Keith explains his reasoning, Shiro’s like “oohhh”

- It doesn’t make him happy but he puts up with ut because he misses Matt too

- When they finally come across Matt, he bypasses both Shiro and Pidge 

- And pulls Keith into a bear hug

- “my son what the hell are you doing in space”

- “shiro did it!”

- “what but but i didn’t even do anything!”

- “you encouraged it so you’re responsible”

- And Matt just kinda screeches like “takashi why the fuck did you bring our son to space”

- Everyone else is confused but it’s funny to watch because Matt gets even more angry when he finds out that Shiro put Keith in charge

- And Keith is touched but he also doesn’t want to see Matt rip Shiro a new one/flirt with him aggressively

- So he clears his throat

- “hey, Matt, have you met Pidge?”

- “darling, why is everyone we know and love in space”

- “because voltron?”

- “uh huh, i see”

- He refuses to let go of Keith the entire time

- Something about “losing a life time of hugs”

- Going so far as to cling onto his arm while Keith is piloting the Black Lion

- And the first time Keith calls Shiro “Takashi” after Matt comes back, Shiro doesn’t even bother hiding his tears

- “you are such a sap”

- (Matt totally ships Klance though)

anonymous asked:

I haven't gotten around to voltron season 2 yet because I've had tons of school work. But I've heard it's nowhere near as good as the first season. What were some of the problems with it?

Off the top of my head, my biggest beef was with the writing lmao.

  • Hunk/Lance/Allura were kind of pushed to the side to focus more on Shiro/Keith (and sometimes pidge) which would be… fine… but Hunk/Lance/Allura’s characterization was often sabotaged to either make time for Shiro/Keith or to develop those two further
    • Basically: H/L/A were reduced to a more one-note/flattened version of their season 1 selves, especially in Hunk and Lance’s case (There was a BIG increase in fat jokes and ‘lance says d*mb shit’ moments)
    • Allura’s character arc was so… poorly handled lmao. Like yeah, she was wrong, but the way the narrative framed her as almost this villain, it was so bad ughhhhhhhhhhh.
  • I wasn’t a huge fan of the pacing?? I felt like some things were just… rushed, when I expected them to be more drawn out. Like the separation thing, I thought they would milk that more.
    • Also some Really Important scenes were totally skipped?? Where were my reunions… where were my reactions… (y’all know what I’m talking about)

Overall, the plot was good and the animation was as fantastic as always. I enjoyed the exploration of the Lions and the reveal of some new powers, etc. But the writing dropped the ball so hard, lmfao. It felt like most of the progress from Season 1 was just…….. reversed, or dropped entirely. 

You know there’s a problem with you show when a bunch of teenagers shitposting on the internet can write your characters better than you can lol :/

Manage me, I’m a mess

Dunno if any of you remember me or my art (on @inuyasha-ruined-mylife) but I’M BACK FINALLY. Jeez, it’s been forever since I drew these two; I’ve had no time to enjoy my OTP what with work, apprenticeships, and college. But now it’s summer and I had had yet to do something InuKag related with my tablet yet soooo this happened.

YOU WANTED CAT EARS ON EDGE YOU GET CAT EARS ON EDGE(͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

This is yet again completely @tyranttortoise fault, because she rebloged THIS and I had to draw it because Edge with cat ears and because I have no self control and Tortoise gives me constant inspiration for things I am not supposed to draw adjkawk

Also bonus Stretch as Luigi from the latest chapter of “Skeleton Squatters and the Landlady” as I had to fill up the page I drew Edge on so took the opportunity to draw Stretch because that moustache, also that joke he is saying is like one of my favourites of all fucking time

BVB Feiertagsmagazin w/ Erik Durm - English translation
  • Nobby: Here he is! I'm very happy you've found your way to me once again, Erik. So far you haven't won a "Goal or No Goal" game against me, that's why I'm especially happy you're here today and I hope it stays that way. Are you confident?
  • Erik: Yeah, it didn't work out the last two times but I think it's finally time that I kick your ass.
  • Nobby: I'm excited! (laughs) Have you analysed the match against Benfica, yet?
  • Erik: Yeah, we talked about it in the hotel. Obviously, we were all sad about the result. I think our approach and way of playing was very good. I think Benfica only had one shot on goal, that one header, and otherwise we didn't give them any chances. Still sucks to lose 1:0 but we're confident that we'll be able to turn things around at home in front of our fans and proceed to the quarter finals.
  • Nobby: Have you ever experienced such a match? Being so dominant?
  • Erik: I don't think so, I mean I've only been here for 3 1/2 - 4 years and I haven't experienced something like it in that way. We were clearly the dominant team, we created many chances, even top-class ones, but yeah, sometimes the ball just doesn't want to get in. Sometimes there are matches like that. Nevertheless we have created a lot of chances, which was very important for us, for the team, and like I said we'll turn things around at home.
  • Nobby: You played badly in Darmstadt and lost, you played excellently in Lisbon and lost. Which face will we see on Saturday?
  • Erik: Well, I hope the one we showed in Lisbon only this time we of course want to get 3 points, we want to win. It's important for us to continue our home run and yeah, we feel good. Of course Darmstadt was a slip-up. Unfortunately, sometimes there are such games where nothing works out and the opponents surpass themselves and that was the case in Darmstadt. But it's still our own fault as well. But I think in Lisbon we showed a reaction and I think we'll be at the top of our game against Wolfsburg. We had 4 days to take a break and...
  • Nobby: And the spirit/mood/morale is good?
  • Erik: Well, yeah after Darmstadt we all were dejected, Lisbon as well, but looking at how we played I think we can look forward to Saturday with confidence.
  • Nobby: That's what you have to keep in mind and if you play like that on Saturday we won't lose.
  • Erik: Definitely!
  • Nobby: You're up against Wolfsburg. You usually say you don't look at how the opponent is doing. But we should and have to do that: they have won 2 of their last 4 games and lost the other 2. How do you rate/judge the team at the moment?
  • Erik: It's difficult to say something about Wolfsburg. They definitely have improved during the second half of the season, they have played good games, sometimes it's a bit of a surprise/lucky bag but to be honest, I haven't watched a lot of Wolfsburg matches. I'd rather focus on our team so I think if we follow through like we want to and if we play like on Tuesday against Lisbon we will win and we don't have to talk a lot about the others, just about us and then things will work out.
  • Nobby: Erik, you're free of injuries, you're a regular in the starting XI. Apart from the two losses how much do you enjoy your current situation?
  • Erik: Of course I enjoy it a lot. It's important for every player to be free of injuries and get playing time. I get that at the moment so I'm very happy but as I said my health is currently still my main focus.
  • Nobby: (touches Erik's knee) Is everything alright?
  • Erik: Yes, everything's ok. (both laugh) And yeah our manager is satisfied with our current performance as well and of course I'm always very self-critical. Especially after Darmstadt I was very self-critical and wasn't satisfied with myself but nevertheless I'm fit, I'm healthy and I'm happy about every minute I get.
  • Nobby: Currently, you're playing in midfield as a winger. You played the same position in the U23. Do you feel comfortable there?
  • Erik: Well, the midfield postion is mainly an offensive part, I'm still also playing in the back five in the defense. We always shift around a bit which works pretty well. Obviously, Schmelle and I always have to run a lot but I think we both know how to do that. That's why this position fits us well and yeah, being involved at the front is always fun...
  • Nobby: You were a striker originally, weren't you?
  • Erik: I was originally playing as a 9 so not that much on the wings but-
  • Nobby: You know how to score goals
  • Erik: One can hardly imagine, yeah. (both laugh) I had some inhibitions when I played for the Dortmund amateurs, didn't quite work out with scoring but after that I've become a defender pretty quickly, thanks to Kloppo, but it's still a lot of fun to be able to make a difference in the offense.
  • Nobby: The Süd will be empty. That will be a weird picture for all of us, for you as well?
  • Erik: Yes definitely! I mean, the atmosphere here in our stadium is always awesome. The süd being behind us is quite impressive. Especially when we play at home they encourage us and spur us on immensely. Yeah... it's such a shame that the Süd won't be there on Saturday.
  • Nobby: When you score a goal you'll still celebrate toward the Süd...
  • Erik: Yes! (both laugh) Yeah, if I score a goal, which for me doesn't happen that often, I'll still celebrate of course.
  • Me: wants to study 6 different languages at the same time
  • Also me: doesn't even have time to get required school work done
