i know the quality isn't great

2

Eric and Dylan got sucked into this appealing fantasy because it was an escape from the troubles of everyday life. When you have a place to go — whether it be home, school, a bar, a drug den, or a video game — where things seem perfect, then you go to that place as much as you can. It’s a type of drug — a fantasy — where happiness exists because things make sense, in real life, things didn’t make sense.

As promised, here are some scans from the Odin Sphere Complete Guide book. Please don’t upload these onto any image hosting websites. I’d like to keep these on tumblr. A few of these didn’t turn out so great, but I will try fixing them in the near future. Feel free to use these for edits or icons if you want. Credit is not necessary, but appreciated!

I love architecture and spaces and structures in general.... but I've never drawn them. I've never had the urge to sketch them out, even. Does that mean I probably shouldn't try to study architecture? Or do some architects just have to learn to sketch in school? I know your advice isn't the word of God, but I'd reallllllly appreciate your advice on this one. Thank you!

Architecture is much more than drawing buildings but I can’t tell by your message if you should study architecture or not.

What qualities make a great architect?

  • A good architect should think more by his heart than brain. He should consider each client’s dream as if it is his own….
  • An architect must have interest in the surroundings. When others see land, you, as an architect, should see a plan, ideas, and design.
  • Architecture takes passion and dedication together with creativity.
  • What qualities make a great architect? The one who possesses a great understanding of other fields other than arts and architecture.
  • Imagination, creativity, and passion. Having these three qualities is very important in an architect. Architecture is art.
  • An architect must be a planner every time, every day, everywhere, every movement, to achieve the great wishes.
  • To feel emotion and question it. To see the need and do it. To ask the question when all is complete: Was all done that needed to be done?
  • A good architect must be optimistic. A great architect is not made by way of a brain nearly so much as he is made by way of a cultivated, enriched heart.
  • An architect should be organized, creative, and resourceful.
  • An architect is a person who should be able to handle many co-related jobs simultaneously. Who should have knowledge of geography, history, sociology, and psychology. And capabilities of learning about new building materials in the market, learning about everything, in addition to thinking and designing.

Hey! So I just read Call Me By Your Name and it broke my heart yet put it back together at the same time... I'm obsessed with it. I know there isn't another novel exactly like it... but what would you recommend reading that's similar? I've tried googling it and all that comes up are poorly written gay love stories about cops or firefighters. I really want to read a quality gay romance novel similar to CMBYN but they are so hard to find. Please help.

If you’re looking for literary novels that feature gay relationships, Maurice by E.M. Forster is a great place to start. I read it for the first time recently and even though it’s set in England in the early 20th-century and the characters are all very repressed, it has a similar sense of longing as cmbyn. Also, James Ivory, who wrote the script for the film adaptation of cmbyn, wrote and directed the film adaptation of Maurice.  

The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller is another really great read. Miller has a degree in Classics and this novel is a retelling of Homer’s Iliad where Achilles and his brother-in-arms Patroclus are lovers.

On the genre side I highly recommend the Captive Prince trilogy by C.S. Pacat. Some of the best sexual tension I’ve ever read in my life! While it’s technically a fantasy series, it features no magic. The author was inspired by the historical fiction of Dorothy Dunnett to give you a sense of the caliber of the writing.

Some YA novels in this vein that I’ve enjoyed include The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice & Virtue by Mackenzi Lee and of course Carry On by Rainbow Rowell.    

I also really recommend Aciman’s new book Enigma Variations. It echoes a lot of the themes in cmbyn but executes them in a less soul-crushing way. It almost reads like Elio’s life post-Oliver in some places. It deals heavily with desire, time and regret.

My Lego - Reioka’s AU

@reioka I told you I wanted to do it, I told you I had a snake tail and that I’d do it… I never told you how crazy I’d go because I had some dumb shit idea while doing it and I couldn’t resist XD.

Here comes Snake Steve!

I had to keep the top of the snake, it gives him purple arms… I guess Clint approves of it XD. It’s not entirely accurate but I still wanted to do it. Hope you don’t mind <3.

Cracky shit under the cut 8D.

even though i havent bought one of your shirts (yet) i love how much care you put into how they turn out. more often then not i get shirts of an artist or band and it just isn't that great of quality either with the print or the shirt itself. basically i'm saying i appreciate how much you care about the quality of EVERYTHING you sell/release

lmao honest to god one of my biggest pet peeves in the world is going to buy merch online and the artist/label only having mockups on display. like huh??? don’t you have HUNDREDS of that shirt just sitting around? how about, you know, taking a real life fucking picture of it so people know exactly what they’re about to spend money on. i don’t know how many times i’ve bought a shirt online and it looks different than the mockup on the site. the print is a different shade, the color of the shirt is off, it fits super baggy. what a mess. 

plus everyone uses the same mockup based off an american apparel 2001 (or some other premium fitted tshirt). if they’re showing you that mockup and giving you something else then it’s false advertising. 

i’m mad now i’m gonna go outside and start punching the air
