X “Was that fucking necessary?”

“Yes, yes it was. You know why? Because you’re boiling and I won’t have more of your self-sacrificing ass. So, suck it up and take off your clothes, you need a bath.” You put the pillow aside, watching as he clenched his lids shut, refusing to look at you.

“Move, (Y/N). I’m fine.”

 “Liar.” You pressed, shaking him a little. He had to wake up.

He huffed, rolling on the bed. “Please, I just need to sleep.”

Lance was… complicated. For all that Keith has slowly begun to figure out the others aboard the ship, Lance remains much of a mystery to him.

(Or, Keith tries putting himself in Lance’s shoes, and things go surprisingly Not Terribly afterwards.)

This is the story of two absolute idiots who keep searching for what they’ve already found.

When Keith moves from the desert in the middle of ass backwards nowhere, to plop in the middle of the big city, he doesn’t expect to instantly grow fond of the tall, endearing, jerk across the street. But it’s hard not to see roses when said person works in a flower shop.

» Damaged by CalicoThunder

Lance’s worst nightmare is realized when his father casts him out of the house for coming out as bi, and as a result, his mind and body end up running away from his control, and he knows he’s gonna lose it-

Until Keith fucking Kogane comes along, at midnight on a Friday.

» daytime star by draconicwyvern

Keith’s neighbor across the balcony is annoying. And not just annoying — Lance is get-on-your-nerves, make-you-want-to-punch-a-wall annoying. So when Lance announces he’s moving to Colorado, Keith finally feels as if the world is back to being just him and the night stars.

But things don’t go as planned: the paper airplanes, the scent of coffee at 1:00 a.m., the words inscribed on Keith’s neck, and the slow curl of a blue flame echoing in his chest. And maybe, just maybe —

— stars do exist in the day.

Keith doesn’t dislike his job, but he definitely dislikes Lance. Probably. Maybe.

» Full Disclosure by IntelligentAirhead

Keith is impulsive and straightforward when it comes to most things, and emotions are no exception. It’s no surprise, then, that when he realises that he might have developed a crush on Lance, he tries to tell him immediately.

» how much do you want it too by attemptsonwords

Keith is many things: dropout, orphan, pilot, defender of the universe, traveler in space. He’s also a human teenage boy, and even light years away from Earth, there are just some things he has to deal with as one.

That doesn’t make a crush on Lance any better though.

Keith shadows Lance for a week and Lance tries to make the most out of it, but Keith is being difficult and Lance has his patience and sanity pushed to the limits.

Things Lance was expecting in his new roommate: probably a little lame, but in a good way. Like in a Hunk way. Normal sense of humour, but hopefully didn’t hate puns the way Hunk and Pidge did. Probably liked Dancing Queen and not much else.

Things Lance was not even remotely prepared for in his new roommate: Keith fucking Kogane.

Lance and Keith are constantly being mistaken for a couple. Lance is highly offended. Keith is quietly outraged.

» so calm, so cool (no lover’s fool) by keithlvnce

Here’s how it starts: Lance says “we are a good team,” grinning, and Keith’s heart skips a beat. But he chalks it off to adrenaline and brushes it off, places it away in his head as something to be looked at later, removed and observed like a specimen on a scientist’s lab table.

LEELA PLS ANALYZE THE NEW DAPCRAFTS VID I CANT STOP SCREAMING

it was,,,,,, so fucking good. i just need to rant for a bit about so many aspects of this video because like not only was it genuinely so funny and original and creative, it was just SO WELL MADE. there were so many small details about it that i couldn’t even believe.  they put so much actual effort into it and they’re also both so naturally funny when it comes to this kind of humor. ahhhh there were so many good things to talk about that i hardly know where to begin or like how to even organize my thoughts so just like,,, be ready bc this is about to be the most incoherent ramble 

first of all. dnp work so well together. i mean. we know this, we see it all the time. but there’s a lot of humor in the crafts videos that is just completely improvised within the larger pre-planned structure/concept. and they bounce off each other SO well in this setting (maybe even better than they do in many of their normal collabs, at least from a comedic standpoint.) i think a lot of this has to do w the fact that the satirical cheeriness of the “characters” that they play, that is over-emphasized to the point of being creepy, just lends itself really well to so many amazing one-liners. but also they just have such good chemistry that is so readily apparent in this context,,, it makes me emotional. they consistently set each other up for jokes, if one person improvises a certain action or behavior the other goes along with it or reacts to it immediately and that’s a mark of rly well-practiced entertainers but also two people who know each other really well and i love watching it play out.

i also do have to acknowledge that they are both fundamentally quite talented. all three of the craft videos are examples of really genuinely witty humor and they showcase that side of dnp so well. both of them also have such a good sense of comedic timing and even an intuition for physical comedy and they’re also rly creative with how they edit these videos and the union of all of those elements is what makes these videos so good in my opinion. while i believe dan’s explanation that the first crafts video was filmed quite spontaneously without much of a plan (and that’s why it’s super short and not as funny as the latter two imo), i do think they put a lot of thought and effort into this one which is quite clear through many of the details they worked into the video both during the filming itself and then afterwards in the editing. first of all the overall concept of them being taken by satan as a culmination of the extremely subtle creepy undertones from the first one is just so smart bc no one would expect them to take it that far and the total hyperbolic unlikeliness of it is what makes it so damn funny. i think most ppl were expecting when dan said he’s keeping his stamp a secret that it would just be some sort of satanic symbol like what happened in the glitter faces vid but like,,, no one thought it’d escalate to where it did. it was so unexpected and over the top but somehow still not overdone or so forced as to dilute the comedy. it synthesized humor with genuinely unsettling creepiness and that is such a difficult balance to achieve. 

you can tell they put a lot of thought into it on so many levels. for instance they worked in all these rly subtle allusions to satan himself before the weird ritual scene happens, like dan saying “this one’s long with a big head like him” (ty for describing satans cock to us dan jfc) and phil saying “i’ve selected as many knives as friends i have, which is two.” then even during the ritual scene they work in things like the cow noise since a common satanic symbol is a horned deity (baphomet lol). and in their new channel description they use the case file name 19-1-20-1-14 which decodes to the word “satan” if you use a basic letter-number cipher (in which each number stands for the letter that is that position in the alphabet. ’s’ is the 19th letter, ‘a’ is the first, and so on.) and there are so many other little editing quirks that give this video that unsettling undertone, as well as editing quirks that add to the comedy of it and it’s all just so well done. for example the voice editing on certain words like “sharp” and “go away.” the audio overlays of heavy breathing at various points and random cuts to black screens. the use of creepy music at strategic places throughout. at 4:36 they recorded themselves saying protip backwards just to reverse it and they even spell out the “protip” text backwards, seemingly both as a way to shit on the whole ‘protip’ trope from the last vid and also to make fun of the way that satanists/conspiracy theorists think there are hidden messages in popular songs and shit that u can only hear if u play the audio backwards. ugh i hate them and their many layers of references. phil also references this again during the ritual part, when dan lights the match (he just goes “portip” “portip” as though he’s trying to say it backwards lol.) and then they fuck around w the word protip throughout the video almost like they’re making fun of it. there’s also definitely a subtle pitch manipulation of their voices as the video progresses. by the end they sound like they’ve sucked on a little bit of helium but it happens gradually enough that you’re just a little bit put off and you can’t really place why. then there’s the little comedic touches like the siren sound when “carefully” flashes across the screen. the fact that the legal disclaimer for adult supervision is cut off at the sides. the zoom in on the fleck of green paint that lands on dan when phil’s pouring it into the plate. ugh like damn i just want to make the point that they clearly put work into this and on face value it seems like a shoddy home video w a weird satanic ending but there’s a reason this works so well and feels so creepy and simultaneously laugh out loud funny and it’s bc they’re genuinely talented and we don’t always get to see that creative talent at work in their standard formulas for videos on their regular channels so i’m just so grateful that they made something like this where it seems like they allow themselves to exercise more of that creative energy. it begs a lot of questions about why they don’t do shit like this more,,,  and i think there are a number of reasons they feel safe and happy making what they generally make now but i’m jst so happy that at least in these videos they’ve branched out and done something so creative and good.

on that note. i just need to ramble about phil. i don’t think anyone can dispute that phil really carries these videos and partly that’s because he’s been in the role of the “teacher” in all three videos so he inevitably comes across as more dominant and sets the tone for the humor, but also like,,, he just works so well in this style and comes up with such spontaneous and WITTY little remarks that inevitably become the standout lines from each vid (in this one, for example, “potato is in my top ten favorite fruit,” “sometimes it’s nice to look up at the stars and remember that they’re all already dead,” “if you make a mistake while cutting just think about it for the rest of the day,” etc. and one of my fav from the past, “if you’re left handed ask a friend” (d: why am i left handed) “everybody makes mistakes!”) he also seems to improvise a lot of the physical comedy in the videos (in this one, the way he just stared at the paint as he squeezed it out for way too long, the way he threw around the cutting boards and plates, the way he did the chopping; and in past ones, slamming his hands on the paper and on dan’s hands when mixing the glitters, clacking the scissors super loudly in the first one, etc.) i just love these videos so much bc they’re some of the only ones that we have these days where phil is really doing most of the comedic legwork and dan definitely helps and bounces off of him but mostly lets phil take charge and i live for it. and while there’s obvi no way to tell who rly did the editing for the video (and i’m sure it was a mix of both of them) there’s no denying that the editing style and general creepiness (especially of the ritual sacrifice scene lol) bear a lot of similarities to the feeling/vibe/editing quirks in a lot of phil’s old school videos (i’m thinking like tape 6 and the basket which, if any of you reading these have not watched, please just open a tab right now and do that before you finish reading this lol.) the choppy way the different clips are spliced together in the whole ritual scene (where one second dan is stamping phil, then lighting a match and chanting, then phil’s chanting, then he’s slumped over and then there are two videos overlaid on top of each other when dan is actually stamping phil’s back and then the sudden cut to black) it’s all so reminiscent of those older videos and it does make me feel like phil had a larger creative hand in thinking about how this video should be put together and that just makes me so happy to think about. i’ve always wondered what phil does w his self-professed obsession with horror and his interest in violence and psychological thrillers and whatnot, as well as his former academic/critical study of filmmaking. it makes sense that he doesn’t feel comfortable exploring those interests by making things himself in this genre in a real way and especially not on youtube because his self-described objective through this platform is to provide his audience with light and uplifting entertainment. more pragmatically, he’s trying to make a living from this job and hold somewhat broad-based appeal through the videos he makes and it makes sense that lighter content that doesn’t require too much intellectual rigor would fare better and hold more consistent audience engagement. and more personally, making things on the level of tape 6, even years later w more familiarity with editing and whatnot and perhaps more skill in writing scripts/characters/plots, still would involve a certain degree of personal emotional vulnerability that the current amazingphil format doesn’t demand. in short, venturing into these territories creatively would be a risk on a lot of levels. it would invite more formal critique of his work. it would invite more people trying to read into who he is and his psyche (which are things that i feel like he’s actually terrified of and that’s part of why he’s built such a protective barrier against it). it would be a risk and it makes sense that he doesn’t want to take it, at least not right now. but it’s just lovely to see that he still has the capacity to make things in the vein of those older videos and to make them WITH DAN and mix them with comedy which i need to reiterate is such a hARD THING TO DO!!!! and  idk it just rly makes me so happy to watch and to think about. 

i love phil so much, and none of this is meant to dilute dan’s role since i’m sure he did inform some of the decisions here, but i just think that dan as phil’s biggest fan (since 2007 y’all) would feel many of these same things about phil’s older content and support phil’s desire to engage that darker creative energy/talent he has hiding under all of those layers of syrupy happiness and amiability. i love that this is sort of an update to that vintage dark!phil content bc it’s the same dark undertones, same editing quirks, etc. but now it’s mixed with rly cheeky humor and maybe that’s dan’s influence or maybe it’s still phil, but a phil that has shared his life w someone w this particular irreverent and sarcastic sense of humor for so many years and this video shows the confluence of those two things in such a lovely and original way and just,,,, ugh. this video was so much and i loved it SO much. truly so, so good i was not prepared to feel so many deep-seated Emotions over some god damn satanic propaganda i need help.

I remember in season three, the guys had to improvise a lot about stories about girls they’ve slept with, like “I hooked up with that girl and she was like that!” Especially David [laughs]. We would say things from real life that happened and experiences and we’d be like, “Oh my god I’m looking forward to that girl seeing that.” [laughs] So I’m not going to say what’s true or not but we took things from real life and I think that’s funny.

two of my old ballet videos are resurfacing and picking up popularity again so this is an improv post from this summer to show more of what i’ve been working on now since i’m bald and have pushed the pointe shoes to the side a bit.

translation of ballon boys QA

(Part 2)

Q from the audience:

Q1: to Yousef: did you know you were going to be in season 4, when you were in season 3?

Yousef: no, I didn’t. I was just an extra then. But we had great chemistry, so I guess that’s why it turned out this way.

Q2: Two questions: what is you favorite episode? And who is Julian Dahl?

Adam: The balloon scene. Everything changed when that came out. I don’t know who Julian Dahl is.

Yousef: I’m sorry to say I’ve never watched Skam. I saw season 2 as a night marathon. Ballon scene is favorite scene. Don’t know who Julian dahl is.

Cengiz: Episode nine. That date we had. It was challenging. We got the script 4 hours before we did it. And it ended at 2 at night. And I had to follow the script very closely. And that’s cool about Skam, that you’re not supposed to get the script like a week before, because then it won’t be fresh. It will be too rehearsed. It was a challenging scene, and that’s why it’s my favorite. And it is cute! We don’t get to know if they are together, because it’s just a date. But it’s going very well. And I don’t know who julan dahl is.

Mutta: My favorite scene is fy faen (balloon scene) and the scene with Elias and Sana was very good.

Håkon Moslet: my favorite scene is the one you haven’t seen yet!! But there have been many wonderful scenes during skam. The balloon scene is of course great, and of course the “Jeg håper du har plass” scene with Sana because she is soo low and sad and then the beautiful song and the girls (los losers) … And also the scene with yousef and sana’s date.

Q3: What do you when you’re not acting in Skam, and do you want to keep acting?

Mutta: football. But I got hurt, and I’m recovering now. I want to study and of course keep acting.

Cengiz: I’ve never been an actor. I’ve placed football, but I chose to go 100% in for dancing and I love it. I like to show my feelings through dancing. I’m making  a music video soon. And I also have a project going that I can’t share. I want to use my creativity to motivate my fans and followers, by dancing and pictures – like the “anti social” pictures I posted. I want to keep expressing my creativity through many different channels. I am very confident, in a good way. I think I can manage to do lots of things!

Simo: I’m working! With children and youth. And I will keep studying. If I get an offer to keep acting, I wont say no! I like to be in front of the camera. So we’ll see.

Yousef: I’m still at high school. I’m dancing break dance. No special plans for the future. I’ll take it as it comes. I read a lot. I’m interested in astrology.

Adam: I’m an artist! I just graduated high school, I’m finally done! Now I will focus 100% on music- that’s the plan. No job and no school atm. Mom and dad are not so happy about that, but I’ll show them with my music!

Q: Favorite lines from skam?

Cengiz: There’s been a lot good ones, but they’re often improvised. I like it because they sound more natural. But honestly, I don’t remember… I like the conversation between sana and Yousef in the last episode.

Simo: What I said to Sana, “what is more important, to say you believe in Allah, or live as if you believe in Allah”

 Yousef: I don’t have lines! Only “I think sana should try” (sock in the basket)

Adam doesn’t have lines either, but he says the part about sana having to throw the sock into the basket when the song goes “smoke weed everyday”

That’s all folks!

Going through my files and found all the art I posted on my Matsuyo ask blog I ran a few months ago (It’s still on hiatus btw) and just wanted to post some of the nicer pieces here.

There were some days all I would draw would be Matsuyo, so I felt kind of guilty focusing all my attention away from other projects on that. But it ended up being really good practice for comic arrangement & improvising comedic answers for a lot of questions I never even thought about and a whole lot of other stuff, so I don’t really regret using my spare time in those months at all. (I do wish I was better at drawing digitally. I went through like 3-4 sketchbooks so I have a big stack of Matsuyo & co. pen drawings I have no idea how to archive.)

In any case, Matsuyo is a good character & at the very least I hope my askblog did a good job showcasing that.

And here’s the lizard lady messing around with a star projector because these people probable forgot what a sky is.

I’m a bit lost looking for a design that suits her. This is the one I like the most. I could have gone with the more popular Triceratops-ish Lisa Simpson approach, but where’s the fun in that? XD
I looked at pictures of horned lizards and I improvised a lot, but I’m still not very comfortable with it. Guess I’ll have to keep trying.

My Gentle Giant: A Poem for Leo the Giant

Leo, My Love

A gentle giant is he,

Beautiful and graceful as anyone can be.

With dance moves ever so swift,

your heart, he most definitely will lift.

A quiet and shy being,

as pure as a Dove,

he’s like the Big Brother you can’t help but love,

He’s the hero we don’t deserve,

one, who Justice, he’s always willing to serve.

And just hand over all your cash, cause I bet you’ll fall for him in a Flash.  

Leo, My King,

With curls ever flowing,

Like a beautiful black mane he’s proud to be showing. 

He’s a humble little Gem,

doesn’t think he has a voice,

but once you hear him you’ll have no choice, 

but to rejoice. 

My giant, so sweet, just wanna give him some sugar,

but we all know that won’t compare to him getting a tasty burger. 

Last thing I want to say, 

is that at the end of the day,

He is the favorite part of my play. 

Leo, My Love, a gentle giant is he, all I want is for him to just be.
