i know they're not very creative

What would happen if Cat Virgil got lost? I know they're in the mind-scape so maybe Roman accidentally leaves his bedroom door open and Virgil wanders in and gets lost in Roman's world of imagination and creativity. The others get so worried about him and Virgil is completely freaked out. Sorry about the really long idea, but I'm just pondering story possibilities....

Ah, a very real possibility, as cats wander away from home frequently! 

I’m going to answer that, but first, I’m going to use your ask as an opportunity to talk about–

What To Do If Your Kitty Runs Away

A lot of these tips are lifted directly from Pet FBI. I’m just distilling them into a list and adding a few of my own suggestions from experience. :) 

First and foremost: most kitties don’t go too far from home!!! This is the number 1 thing to remember. Cats have a great sense of direction and an even better sense of smell. They know where home is. 

 If this is the first time they have gone out, they are probably scared and hiding. You can check around your home in nooks, crannies, hidey holes, etc–under bushes, in your house’s crawlspace (if you live in a house), 

But remember: cats are VERY good at hiding. You are far more likely to have success luring your cat back than you are finding him on your own. Here are some tips to do that: 

- Leave something that smells familiar to the kitty outside, like a pillow they slept on or even a scoop of used litter. I know that sounds kinda gross but cats tend to return to familiar smells. 

- Leave out some food. The stinkier the better. Tuna, anchovies, sardines, etc. Heat it up for an even stinkier enticement! 

- If you have a garage door, leave it cracked open far enough to let kitty slip in. 

- LISTEN. Cats meow and scratch at doors but they tend to be most active at night. Make sure you’re paying attention! Pet FBI recommends you sleep near the door or even use baby monitors to alert yourself to your kitty’s return. 

- Sit outside and talk. Don’t call for your kitty or cry or plea, but sit outside and talk on the phone or with a friend in your normal speaking voices. Cats respond well to that. 

If your kitty doesn’t return, make sure you check the ‘found’ sections of your local message boards. You can call shelters as well. Alert neighbors to keep an eye out, or make ‘lost’ posters. If kitty hasn’t returned on his own after a few days, there’s a good chance they’ve gotten stuck somewhere, so remember to look UP, too–trees, rooftops, etc. Cats are much better at getting UP than they are at getting DOWN. 

Cats can get stuck in other people’s garages and sheds, too. Take a walk around your neighborhood and chat on the phone, pausing to listen now and then. If kitty is stuck nearby and hears your voice, he may start mewing to get your attention. 

The big thing is don’t panic, and don’t give up! Cats are very independent creatures, and even animals who have been raised indoors have very good instincts for survival. I’ve had cats missing for months who returned one day, pert as you please, like ‘oh yeah mom no big deal, just back from my world tour.’ Keep these strategies in mind, and remember, the sooner the better. Enticing a cat back early is always the most successful method!


Now, for those of you who read this far, a quick little headcanon: 

CatVirgil gets into Princey’s realm when Roman accidentally leaves his door open. Roman runs in after him but Virgil quickly disappears because Roman’s realm is huge and expansive, with forests and meadows and castles and just about anything else you can imagine. 

Roman admits what has happened to the others, and the three of them venture into Roman’s realm to find him. They spend days searching, calling for Virgil, following clues and whatnot. Then one night, they’re sitting around the campfire just talking, and Roman breaks down and starts to cry because he feels so guilty and afraid for Virgil. What if Virgil is hurt? He’s got to be so scared, out there by himself. If anything happens to him–

Just then, the others gasp, but Roman doesn’t notice, because he’s too busy berating himself between his tears. But he does notice when he feels a tiny bump against his elbow. He jerks up and looks down and there’s Virgil, staring up at him, eyes wide and concerned. Roman immediately picks him up and hugs him, crying and laughing because Don’t you scare me like that again, Virgil! and I’m so glad you’re okay!!! 

And Virgil curls in against him and purrs like “yeah no big deal, but i knew you loved me.”

Do you really not cry when writing the very emotional chapters e.g. Shade's death, Mare breaking down, King's Cage epilogue...? All of your readers are sobbing over these characters who seem so real to us- surely if they're your own creation you feel so much more heart broken when they hurt?

I don’t know if this is weird or not, but no, I don’t get very emotional over these scenes. Maybe it’s because I see the seams? It’s more clinical for me? Sort of like a doctor doesn’t get squeamish over blood? But I can definitely be moved by other creative works. So far not my own. That seems a bit self-indulgent, I think, to be crying over your own words.

So I haven’t seen this yet on tumblr….A very creative and hella coordinated cover of Hello.

the signs as people i know
  • aries: kind of cool but usually has a superiority complex. love arguing. i've had a crush or something close to one on every aries i know i think. they're super passionate about the things they love! and i think they seem to be very mature.
  • taurus: i always get close to them (and then they hurt me lol). they're usually really easy going people, but getting them angry is a no. self centred way of thinking when they're upset. the first boy i ever fell in love with was a taurus and he was so cool and he loved music and working out. was obviously pretty insecure. and one of my best friends is a taurus and he can make me angry like no one else on this planet. the stubborn stereotype is very true. bottle things up often. but yea when they're in a good mood they're so chill and just love to feel full of love and life. creative.
  • gemini: so many conflicting feelings about these guys. one of my best friends is a gemini and he's so funny and smart! and just generally a sweet kid who loves people and life. but he's also insensitive when it comes to his humour sometimes. my grandma was a gemini and i loved her with all my heart but after she died i found out she was very manipulative. and then when i was in a relationship, a gemini guy kind of wiggled his way into my heart and he was really kind and sweet but ruined my first relationship ever aha. gemini's definitely love up to the "two-faced" stereotype for me, but not necessarily in a bad way. it's just that you don't get to see all of their sides. they have big plans and they love to learn. they're wise and somehow always know the right thing to say (to me at least)!!
  • cancer: again, very conflicted about these signs. the first boy who ever had a crush on me was a cancer. he was very troubled and addicted to drugs already in elementary school. but he was wise in a way and very emotional. actually all cancer boys i know are very troubled. they're insecure but they hide it by being weird on purpose. the cancer girls i know are very sweet. i have a giant crush on one, she's very shy and soft but really funny. both of the cancer girls i know are funny and have nice senses of style! and they're just sweethearts. they're also easily distracted and don't like school.
  • leo: ugh. i'm biased here because my ex was a leo. she was a lot. i think all leo's i know are just /a lot/. not in a bad way but if you get involved with them they're going to be a big part of your life, they won't be background characters. very generous people. most of them that i know are very conscious of their outward appearance, and work to create aesthetics for themselves. opinionated but open minded.OH and one of my very sweet internet friends is a leo, she's funny and charismatic and creative! i think leos like to share what their world looks like through art?
  • virgo: hey it's me. i know like 4 other virgos though. they're all very likeable people. virgos can be either introverted or extroverted but they give off the same vibe either way? usually teachers favourites, even if they don't mean to be. they just seem easier for adults to approach than other teenagers for some reason? also they are really clever at getting out of things they don't want to do. usually a lot of people know their name but don't really /know/ them. they putter at small tasks when nervous. messy rooms but like everything else to be tidy.
  • libra: two of my best friends are libras! they're TOTALLY natural flirts omg they love it. very very funny. quick thinker. hates making people upset at /them/ but isn't the most sympathetic person and can be blunt. little bit of a victim complex, but that's really how things feel to them. hates stupid people. obsessed with love and relationships and feeling wanted. things are very black and white until it's about them self. super sweet when they want to be. they like writing and always have a lot of ideas! and they get really dedicated to the things they're interested in.
  • scorpio: my brother and my best friend's sister are scorpios. also a few people i know in school. they're funny. the boys are very sensitive, maybe the girls are too but they don't show it as much. thinking before acting? they don't know her. they have wicked smiles. like to make people feel stupid. they do not ever get embarrassed!
  • sagittarius: tbh i only know two of u. had a crush on both but didn't know them toooo well. they're really funny! and passionate. also really chill unless you insult someone they love? honestly they just love to have a good time! sorry that this ones short :(
  • capricorn: one of my kind of close friends is a capricorn. she's super strange and she has adhd. she used to be bullied a lot and i stood up for her but then she turned around and bullied me? we were still tight though. she is super passionate about about gymnastics and hairstyling and that's what she dedicates her entire life to. in high school we became better friends with no bullying involved and im honestly just so proud of her for continuing to work hard through all of her struggles. also she's a hoe and has a lot of fun with that. opinionated and mature in a unique way. like they aren't gonna do stupid embarrassing shit so they're mature like that, yet childish when it comes to controlling them self and understanding their own emotions
  • aqaurius: my parents are both aqaurius and my ex best friend was one and a boy i was in love with was one and one of my close pals is one. passive aggressive as FUCK. major god complex. awful senses of humour but they're still funny. emos cuz they feel like they're different than other people, and they usually are. theyre cool and inspire me. afraid of real emotions but they feel a lot of them. probably have had an encounter with a ghost or UFO
  • pisces: you little fuckers. i can't meet a pisces without getting a crush on them. they're soft. very unique compared to the people they hang with. they have huge beautiful minds and you will feel SO special when you get to witness their thoughts.honestly just the cuddliest looking people. thinking about them hurts my heart. i think my soul mate is probably a pisces. they probably love music and sunrises.

Hiya,just wondering if you have any fiction on mace and Jules?They're adorable and I'd love to read about them!Not smut or shiz like that,as that never really focuses on characterization or plot, but a Bella gay romance would be fantastic if there is

Aww aww this message made me so happy it’s always so nice to know people are interested in my characters!! (´•ω•̥`)

Unfortunately I have no writing about them. I’m not very confident in my creative writing skills which also explains why I haven’t worked on that darn lesbian webcomic. The most I can do is comic strips. ˚‧º·(˚ ˃̣̣̥᷄⌓˂̣̣̥᷅ )‧º·˚

Thank you so so so much for being interested!! Here is a doodle to show my appreciation!! Mace walks Jules to art class! ( shh they don’t know the class peeks at them & Jules always wonders why people giggle when he enters the room.)

Hey! I know you've probably got stuff on but if you ever felt like adding to I am hockey (and so can you) I'd really appreciate a post on the playoffs. Atm I have NO idea what is going on :/ 1 minute this is the most important game next thing you know they're playing again??? I come from a bg of A(ussie)FL and once you lose against the team your playing against, you go out and get drunk bc your season's over. So yeah. I am VERY confused. If you just want to Reply, that's fine 😊 (I'm an edm fan)

oh man, a whole post on how seeding works would take a million years, but this is the basics: there are four rounds, the very creatively named rounds 1 &2, the conference finals, and the stanley cup finals. in each round, teams play to the best of 7. in the first round, 8 teams from each conference start off (so, 4 matchups total). 

right now these matchups are:

eastern conference

leafs v caps
pens v jackets
habs v rangers
sens v bruins

western conference

ducks v flames
oilers v sharks
hawks v preds
wild v blues

in the second round, the winners play each other, also to the best of 7. in the conference finals, the two teams still standing from each conference play each other. the winners of the conference finals go on to the stanley cup finals, and whoever wins that wins it all and gets a shiny new boyfriend (or, in my case, keeps their shiny old boyfriend, because he loves us the most and we’ve built a life together over the course of the last year).

hope that helped! no offense but i hope your team loses and mine repeats.

anonymous asked:

Oddly enough, I can actually see Sanji and Riskua becoming good pals. I can see them have that kind of friendship where they flirt with each other but both know it doesn't mean anything and it's more like witty banter. Just remembering all of Sanji's sneaking around as Mr. Prince and how he's actually pretty observant (and very kind to people). I feel like Riskua would appreciate the sneakiness in a crew filled with hotheads. Also with her writing and his cooking, they're both creative types.

Yeah, Sanji and Riskua are going to get along, but then again all the Strawhats get along, despite the occassional bickering. Riskua’s rarely one for confrontation though, so her interactions with a lot of them will be significantly easier. 

samuelpino  asked:

What do you think about The New 52 and not just Superman and Wonder Woman? Many people inssist that it was terrible and that DC Rebirth is the beast thing in DC Comics and while i admit that Rebirth is very creative in some areas i can't stop feeling confuse because of what they're doing. Also, i came to think that maybe The New 52 indeed made some mistakes (Bar Torr and Lobo) but i still think that it was actually better that most people realize. So i will like to know everyones opinion.

Stories from the new 52 were very good. From Action Comics, Wonder Woman, Justice League, Aquaman, Batman, Batwoman, Batman and Robin, Green Lantern, Animal Man, Metal Men, Harley Quinn and so many more. They were easy to get into as well.  These people are long time fans who want no change. They want what they read for the last 20 some years to stay the same. No other people it seems have a right to have updated versions of the characters. They alone should dictate the direction of comics. Compare honestly Rebirth to New 52. New 52 was creative. Rebirth is a recycled rehash of the 90ties that has been so convoluted that many people are confused by what happened or did not happen or have to get so messy and complicated in their explanations to try to justify the changes that it just suggests bad writing .DC jumped the shark to give older readers…the “meat and potatoes”…”the longbox” collectors what they demanded than try to build on what they did in the 2011 reboot and  have a more diverse and broader readership. They deliberately messed up the new 52 .

 DCYou was an initiative tried to be more diverse but it also ended up messing up the momentum of many good books with necessary crossovers and idiotic plot points. Eg Peter J Tomasi who had Clark tell Diana he did not love her anymore as the main selling point. Tell me. You love them as a pairing or a casual and new fan to DC, is that a way to get you buy their title? Tomasi was out to sabotage a successful book. DC was already planning to screw the new 52 and a good Superman version.

End of the day DC’s core audience don’t want diversity. It can be seen by the poor response to DCYou and even the few diverse titles in Rebirth. Look at Cyborg, New Superman and Batwoman and Apollo and Midnighter, etc and where their numbers are post Rebirth. They are terrible. It says something about the readership DC pander to and sadly something about DC in that they allow themselves to not try to be more creative, experimental and inclusive. Also take the blurbs that go along with Rebirth and the manner they address the readership. They make it seem as if new 52 fans mean nothing. The new 52 actually according to analysts saved the industry. It gave DC and Marvel and huge boost and DC are spitting at it and the fans by not acknowledging it. I stopped buying DC when the new 52 ended. DC are not catering for the likes of a reader like me. Their titles imo are too conservative and stagnant and lack creativity. If I wanted safe and basic I’d never read in the first place.

Ironic thing is the numbers sales wise don’t really justify Rebirth over the new 52. Other than the old time readers singing praises for lackluster stories…the sales figures are not better or greater. DC Rebirth was a reboot trying not to be one seeing they already did one not too long ago. They got some #1′s. Had initiatives the new 52  never had like double shipping and returnability and staggering the release of #1s.  They got market share for a bit but lost it again. Even Marvel at its worse has taken back market share. They say Rebirth Superman is selling so great. Look Superman is at 50k and dropping currently and he is supposed to be a flagship character and supposedly his new status quo is what everyone wants. Those are not good numbers. I am sorry compare him to Batman and he is waaay behind. This Rebirth initiative has not done anything spectacular sales wise. Same for Rebirth  Wonder Woman. DC keeps using all this hyperbole. Greg Rucka is a “fan favorite”. He is a favorite of some fans I can give you that. But not all fans. His Rebirth Diana story is not exactly a great one. Just a rehash and mish mash. And the sales of Diana reflects the response. It is now in the 40k range in less than a year. Azzarello stayed 3 years and even the Finches sold around the same or better. My point is no one can say new 52 is bad stories or deserved ending because based on comparative numbers…both initiatives had ups and downs and the sales are the true arbiter, not PR and hyperbole. Nor bitching online. Even the  Rebirth Justice League stories and sales are not as good as new 52. Look end of day good or bad is subjective. Readers have bias. But the new 52 era was a very good time in comics. Some of the best ORIGINAL story lines came out of it. I shall treasure the books I have and it is a shame DC can’t acknowledge its importance.

Rebirth is going to be doing a lot of events and crossovers to get sales up. It is the norm when you run out of ideas. I mean, if you freaking going to drag in the Watchmen and blame them for your poor management of your comics division…And if aging readership is the core readers you want to keep then expect other readers to migrate else where. Image and Vertigo and the independents seem to be doing some good, exciting and new stuff. Other than that maybe DC might get some good talent on AU or lone graphic novels…because imo canon is not worth wasting money on every month. I mean 5 years of story you thought happened  never did. But 5 years of money did leave your pocket. 

His fingers brush across my grayscale skin and I’m finally starting to show some color. He loves the way my cheeks and lips bloom a rosy pink and I’m glad he does. He tells me how exciting life seems through his tinted lenses. He says that I’m starting to look like art. I don’t tell him that I didn’t mind living in black and white.

His fingers graze against my shaded wrist and I’m surprised by his touch. Violent reds mark my skin like the prints on pointing fingers and the vision of an artist who stopped trusting his paints. He says that he is sorry; that not all of his mistakes can be erased, scratched out, colored over. I don’t tell him that some mistakes should just be avoided.

His fingers wrap around my canvas neck and I stare at him with widened eyes. He stares back like he’s gazing at an art exhibit and I miss the feeling of going unseen. I’m marked with shades of violet and blue and he says that I look beautiful. He doesn’t realize how cold this picture has become. I don’t tell him that I would’ve gasped if only I could breathe.

His fingers close the lids over my blackened eyes so he can focus on all of the color. There is no rhyme or reason to his abstract motivations, no scheme to follow or pallet to use. To him, it is my fault that I’ve been reduced to this constructed mess but to him, I am still beautiful. He says that I am his masterpiece. I don’t tell him how ugly I feel in his colors. I don’t tell him that he’ll never be an artist.

I know that writing is a hard market to make a career in, but all of these quotes from established writers saying "when you're young your writing is awful" or "write for ten years and you might be able to pay your electricity bill" or "don't quit your day job...ever" really gets me down. As someone who wants to write, all of this negativity makes me feel unworthy to even try. I know what they're trying to get across, that writers don't live a glamorous lifestyle, but how can I remain optimistic?

Other than the first one, none of these is necessarily trying to be negative – it is trying to be blunt and very realistic. Making a living as a writer, using that as your career, is an incredibly unreliable, unstable way to make a living. This is true of pretty much any career in the creative arts.

That being said, if writing is truly your calling, if you can’t see yourself doing anything else, then you will find a way to do it. Yes, your writing is probably going to be bad for a while. That’s true of anything when you start, because you have to work at it to get better. Yes, you’re going to likely have a hard time finding a job writing that actually allows you to do nothing but write – and especially if all you want to do is write what you desire to write. Professional writers often have jobs doing articles, teaching, critiquing, technical writing, etc., to sustain them financially while working on their passion projects.

However, this doesn’t mean you have to take up a life you hate in order to pursue something you love. It means you have to be extra hardworking, extra dedicated, to what you truly want to do in order to ensure you can do it well and make a living at it. It means you have to push through times of despair, feeling that your writing isn’t good enough, and write anyway. It means you may have to sacrifice a couple hours sleep to fit in time to hone your manuscript between working two jobs. It means you may have to pick up an extra class to teach to cover your rent for two months so you can keep pitching that screenplay. It means that if writing is what you want to do for the rest of your life, and you want to make a career out of it, you will find a way to make your life fit around writing, to infuse your life with it, the way writing infuses you.

Negativity and despair will come and go throughout all of this, just as they will throughout life. What you do to lift your spirits and motivate yourself through these times is up to you, but know that if writing is truly what you want and need to do, you can do it – because you will find that you must.

Hope this helps!

Reunion .2

Hey! Remember when I wrote this ?

(Don’t worry. I forgot about it too)

Well I wrote 1000 more words. They achieve nothing plotwise, and I have no idea where they are going, but I wanted to write some pre-couple Golly and was feeling too lazy to start a new story. So, anyway… They’re under the cut, if you want to read them. 

Keep reading

They've obviously put a fuckton of work into this book, it's not just them jumping on the bandwagon! They said months and months ago that they've been working on a lot of cool things that they're really excited to show us, and jfc, people are so unappreciative, I don't understand?? Like, if you don't want to spend money on the book, don't buy it! If you think the tour tickets are too expensive, don't go! Other people will instead! You know?

very well said, my friend.

what makes me laugh is the thought of people thinking dan and phil would allow someone else to work on their book. like come on, especially dan here, as if dan howell would be okay with that, he’d be so against it it’s just laughable. and phil is very, very creative, with a degree in english might i add, so i highly doubt he’d let someone else do the work.

people are jumping to such shitty conclusions without thinking about who the hell dan and phil are
