i kind of want to give up now but ideas

future cosplay ideas! 

I’ve finished my winter projects, so now its time to start looking at spring ideas! 

I actually…might buy a plug suit? thats unfortunately kind of become the plug suit standard right now, but eh, can’t do much about that. 

IM JUST NOT READY TO GIVE UP ON CALI, IM JUST NOT!! I wanna be a squid so bad, I’m willing to try and come at this one again, learning from my previous flop. 

The bone armor is really likely, Ive wanted to do that one for a while and I got the stuff for it so?? good chance of that happening. 

what do you guys think? what are your upcoming plans? 

Updates:

I will DEFINITELY be starting a YouTube channel when Dan and I find a place to live. I’m already getting ideas ready for videos (and trying to come up with a channel name).

I was talking to Dan about it and we both thought it would be a good idea for me to start a Patreon now to help get people’s interest and possibly offset some of the cost of setting up a channel (I need a camera, tripod, mic, and editing software at the very least).

Here’s where I’m stuck… people usually give their Patrons “rewards” or extra stuff… I don’t know what I would do for that.

If I got a Patreon set up, what are the kind of extras you guys would want? What would you look forward to? 

*cracks knuckles* and now for some half-white half-mexican lance headcanons that nobody asked for

  • he’s not fluent in spanish because his mom never learned either. her parents didn’t teach her because they wanted her to have an easier time growing up in america, and she and lance feel the effects of that
  • lance’s mom has kind of given up, but lance studies spanish a lot in his free time and he tries to teach his siblings some of it so they can learn early 
  • learning and speaking spanish helps lance feel really in touch with his identity and it makes him really happy
  • in school everyone knows lance for being really good at spanish and they just assume everyone at home speaks it and it makes lance so proud
  • about half of his siblings are white passing and he’s secretly really thankful because that way people will treat them better
  • komo lo zupo
  • he honestly first learned some basic spanish words by listening to latino pop like enrique iglesias and shakira’s spanish songs (he loves lo hecho está hecho) 
  • in 7th grade his ringtone was amor prohibido by selena quintanilla for like the entire year
  • he buys a harry potter book written in spanish in 10th grade to see if he can understand it and he realizes he’s getting most of it and feels like he could just do a backflip
  • he loves the “si ya saben como me pongo pa’ que me invitan” vine
  • sometimes he resents having such a “white” sounding name because it makes people ask him all sorts of questions about where he’s from and what ethnicity his parents are and really, it’s nobody’s business
  • has lots of little nopal charms
  • he looks at himself in the mirror a lot and is just so proud of his brown features and his brown skin 

What she says: I’m fine

What she means: It’s been five years and there’s still no official follow-up of any kind to Inception, and I guess that’s ok, I understand Nolan not wanting his ~artistic vision~ to be tampered with, but I wonder if he has any idea how much that world and those characters mean to so many of us, if he has any idea what kind of amazing world-building and dedicated fandom has grown on the back of his movie, how it’s bigger than just his thought experiment now, it’s about giving us a chance to return to this universe we all love. I’d be okay with a prequel, a look at the early days of dreamshare, if it’s a way of avoiding screwing with the ambiguity of the ending, because there’s still plenty to explore there. Heck, they could make some kind of film version of The Big Under, the comic, I’m sure Ken Watanabe would be up for it, and we could finally learn more about Tadashi! Or they could just make a sequel focusing on a completely different dreamshare team. That way maybe Eames could still turn up, maybe, and Arthur, and we could see them together again, just for a few more precious moments, and it would be the most wonderful thing, and oh, Arthur and Eames, there’s nothing like them anywhere. But I just want more Inception, it’s not like I can’t be satisfied if I only have JGL and Tom Hardy back together again. Show us what Robert’s up to these days, or give us a whole TV series with a whole new amazing team. It’d be so cool. What’s holding you back, Warner Bros.? We need this. Do you even know how hard it is being in a fandom with no new canon material produced for five years? Do you even know how amazing what you’ve given us is, that we’ve been able to stay happily playing in this two-hour-and-28-minute-long sandbox for five years? New canon isn’t asking too much. We deserve this.  I’ll be okay, really, if it never gets made, because what we’ve built as a fandom is so incredible. But please, oh, please. We’ve waited so long. I just want to see Eames kick Arthur’s chair one more time.

Can I just give a round of applause to the people working on the sounds in this episode?

Seriously, like oh my gosh.

The music in itself was incredible: the rock score playing during the fight, the climatic build up during Stan and Bill’s scene, and the emotional final score playing as the twins are leaving, and we get to see all the characters for the final time.

However also, whoever’s idea it was to add a heartbeat during the scene where Bill is literally playing eenie meenie minie mo with the twins lives is incredible. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time (although it was interesting to see it land on Mabel as usually Dipper is the one who gets the ‘you’). But seriously, the amount of tension built with the heartbeat, and the fact all Bill has to do is click his fingers and Mabel is dead was unbelievably nerve wracking.

Then, when we are in Stan’s mind and we can see Bill go through the 5 stages of grief; can someone please give Alex Hirsch all of the medals ever? Seriously, the snarky, sassy, demonic triangle who gets pleasure by causing pain was completely gone. No longer was he making quick comments but he was begging for his life. He was pleading, you could hear the panic rising in his voice at the realisation that he was about to die. He challenges Stan by trying to bribe him with money and fame however you can hear that deep down he knows it’s pointless.

And then his final word, is him calling out Stan’s name.

The shakiness in his voice- you can really hear the pain and anxiety in his last words, and that part really stuck with me the first time I watched it. It had such an eeriness to it, that this murderous villain was about to die at the hands of Stan, the martyr.

Bill is no longer in control.

No Fear Just Persevere

When starting the class Christina and Gary showed us an image of a path that meandered, had deep pits and steep cliffs to scale. It had a few false summits and one or two water hazards to avoid. Christina explained to us that this is how the project is going to feel. There will be times you will feel as if you are finished and then realize there is so much more to do. Alternatively you are going to feel like you’ve exhausted all options and that it’s hopeless and want to give up or think that a completely different goal is much more doable and appealing and want to switch.

I remember being a little skeptical and thinking it seemed a little exaggerated. Now two weeks away from launching my Kickstarter I find that my journey has been pretty much exactly as Christina described this image.

I started thinking to do some fairly advanced physical computing project. On the advice of Christina, this was scaled back to the idea of some kind of documentation of the music genre Vaporwave that I am very passionate about. For a while I floundered unsure exactly how to make this passion tangible or what documentation in particular was of any value to the community.
I began with the idea of an event IRL. After getting feedback from designers and from Vaporwave enthusiasts, I iterated to include a streaming component to the event, thinking maybe to have multiple IRL events in different cities that people stream. There was still too much logistically going on; I needed to procure a venue, look for collaborators in other cities, solicit artists to perform, ensure the tech worked, promote the event to get people to attend a physical venue in nyc and prepare the Kickstarter draft itself. Given the time frame and my experience planning events, it felt daunting and I reconsidered the whole project. Did I really want to do an event? “I don’t have any interest in event planning,” I told myself. I started considering trying to create a Vaporwave themed walking simulator in Unity, which is something I’ve been interested in doing for a while now. I reached out again to people I knew in real life and online. The streaming concert idea continued to get enthusiasm. After scaling back the set up to exclusively a streaming experience it let me focus on what was most important, getting artists on board. Once I focused on that and started successfully getting collaborators on board things clicked and for the first time there was a clear path to realizing the project that felt very feasible and like something I was confident in.

It is interesting to me I have two main takeaways from the journey. As a whole, getting my idea more viable has been a process of scaling it down each step of the way. It is such a tight time frame that logistically it is best if I focus in on just one or two variables (getting artists and ensuring the streaming tech works). The other takeaway for me is persistence. I was elated when people expressed interest and wanted to help and then felt demotivated when people dropped off or expressed disinterest. It really was a matter of iterating on feedback when constructive and just persevering. These two takeaways, simplify and persevere, are perhaps sort of cliché but experiencing them first hand really drove home their truth.

The kickstarter will launch in two weeks and there is still fear around whether or not it gets funded, but at least as of now I feel satisfied that I learned so much through the course of this on becoming more comfortable with being public on the internet, how to reach out to an online community and successfully gather feedback and connect with people to collaborate. I certainly feel more confident about the prospects of being funded given that I have some well known artists signed on and I have developed a network of people into Vaporwave that I have involved in the process of developing this idea.

Do This: List all the things you’re currently working on in as much or little detail as you’d like, then tag some friends to see what they’re working on. This can be writing, art, vids, gifsets, whatever.

I always have a ridiculous amount of stuff going at one time…I’m convinced if I didn’t have to work I’d have like three webcomics going at once lol

1. More Lucilles, right now I have 3 I’m working on, one is done and just needs some editing!

2. Two cute cuddling Richonnes that might go up together since they’re almost identical

3. A really cute AU Richonne date whose idea I’ve been sitting on for weeks and now I finally have it moving! 

4. There’s a big TWD au thing I’m doing but I don’t want to give any details because I pulled it back and it’s kind of on the backburner before I can devote the time to it

5. I want to get a Negan started soon because I miss him already lol, and some more Rick and Negan stuff but I have nothing planned I just know I wanna get Negan/Negan&Rick stuff done

6. There’s technically a Resdogs drawing I have scanned I just need to edit it already! That said I’m also working on the comic throughout all of this which is why you don’t often see Resdogs art from me over here.  

7. I’ll just say some of my future ideas for this one: Some Bethyl, Desus, more Cazekiel, a cool idea I have for some of the women of TWD…And some Breaking Bad/BCS stuff because not all of you are here for my TWD obsession lol!! There’s also a ton of Negan ideas I have but they’re starting to get overwhelming lol. I have a list app and it’s just Negan ‘insert song here’, Negan ‘insert song here’ cause there’s so many good songs I want to put with Negan lol. 

8. I almost forgot I have an idea I’m really pumped about but I want to take some care with it because I think it could be super cool, so I’m gonna stay quiet about that but I’m excited for it.

anonymous asked:

It's just that, how can you expect to be a true eremika shipper, or adopt the eremika ship as your otp, if you approve something like that, which completely opposes the former. One thing is to find the idea of Levi and Mikasa bonding cute and sweet, but now this is honestly going overboard. And could you please stop pulling the "I do and feel what I want to" card? Especially towards someone that actually gives away the time to care about it?

omg! OMG! 

so there is criteria to be an eremika shipper now?? like .. some kind of a membership with rules??? wow that wasn’t there when I signed up!!!
so If I like Rivamika too you’re going to take away my “true eremika shipper” card ??? am I kicked out from the em fandom now??? please tell me! I am sick worried!!

please please please don’t give away anything from your time because I repeat: I do and I feel what I want! and I also ship what I want!

what exactly is your objection on this?? it’s the same way you do what you want.. aka following me or NOT following me!
no one is paying me money to ship eremika or to draw for it you know, I did it because it’s what I wanted to do NOT because people controlled me!! 

I can’t wrap my mind around the fact that you’re actually trying to control what I do in my blog! honestly???

ROSE OUT! 

I want some kind of AU where Harry and Louis are actors and they ending up doing the same movie together and they “don’t like each other” as a way of flirting. And then like, it’s time to shoot their big kissing scene and they’re both moaning and groaning about it beforehand. And then it takes like “CUT!! Cut!!!! The scene has ended!!!! YOU CANT STOP NOW. Please!!! CUT!!!” for them to break apart. And the crew is really rolling their eyes so hard, but Harry and Louis are smiling real big at each other. And then there is more kissing. Non movie scene related.

Does anyone else have that one ship that sometimes just kind of sneaks up on you? And you have no idea what to make of it but it’s just strangely intriguing? And you would never break up your OTP over it, but you still kind of love it?

The thought of multishipping makes me cry because MY BABIES THEY NEED TO BE TOGETHER but sometimes I think I would give my left arm for a fic in which Mike is Kurt’s ex-boyfriend and they totally parted on good terms and maybe Mike is the one helping Kurt figuring out how to ask out Blaine now… I just want some Mike/Kurt!! Not as endgame. But WOULDN’T THEY BE SO CUTE TOGETHER??!!?!?!

Welcome to 1daaw!

Hi everyone and welcome to day one of 1daaw!!

Like I mentioned earlier, the kind of content you want to post is up to you. Whether its sending messages, making posts, making edits… whatever you want to do, do it. And especially, during a weekend like this, lets all make an effort to review as much as we can when we read something we like.

Now, this weekend is freeform but if you’re like me, you might like a bit of a framework to work within to get the most of of the weekend and give you some ideas. So here’s a bit of a structure to follow:

Day 1 & 2: let’s talk about… fics

do exactly what it says – talk about fics! The ones you love, the ones you’re just discovering, the ones you’ve always meant to read. Talk about themes and tropes you love, talk about characters, talk about great lines and favourite scenes. Ask authors questions about their writing and their stories (trust me, its our favourite thing). 

Day 3: let’s talk about… new writers/stories

make this an opportunity for new writers or old writers with new stories to step forward and do a little bit of the talking. If you fall into this category, make a post about your fic and put it in the 1daaw tag so everyone can see it. Promo yourself a bit. Show us what you’re working on. And for the readers out there, show us the new gems you’ve stumbled on! lets make this community feel like a welcome space.

Day 4: let’s talk about… the 1dff community

we’re all here for some reason or another, and we all stay when things get a little rough because something pulls us back. Lets talk about why – lets talk about the reasons we love this community and what we get back from it. Spread around as much positivity as possible!

Day 5: let’s talk about… ourselves

a week like this would be a bit pointless if it didn’t also involve some kind of reflection, so let’s step back and take a moment to talk about ourselves. What is your motivation for writing and sharing? What have you learned by writing fic that you can share with new writers? And this is a great chance for new writers to ask older writers any questions they might have and get advice. The thing any writer will find is that we make ourselves our worst critics, so we also have to be a loud voice celebrating our own triumphs!

Hopefully these themes for each day can give you some interesting ideas of what you can do to contribute. I’m going to try to circulate some ask memes and also some question lists for the end of the weekend that’ll help start a conversation but feel free to come up with your own ideas and post whatever content feels best for you. If you have any questions, send them here!

I can’t wait to see what everyone has in store. Let’s make this a great weekend everyone!!
