The Raid

It’s just after one in the afternoon and you’re cutting the crust from a peanut butter sandwich. “Liam, you want jelly on yours?”

You son looks up from up his sea of building blocks with a grimace on his face. “No!”

“Alright, no jelly,” you confirm. His cheeks are pink, hair stuck to his forehead. The air conditioning broke two days ago and Sam promised to have one of his guys come by to look at it by tonight. “You look hot buddy, why don’t you come in here.”

Coping, sober.

I didn’t think I’d use my tumblr again any time soon, but something happened that I wanted to memorialise.

Some years ago I had a quite bad problem with drinking, due to all sorts of things and the lack of coping mechanisms in my own life. It was in 2012 that I stumbled over an interview with Daniel Radcliffe in which he bravely and openly talked about his own addiction. It was this interview that gave me the courage to go to my first ever AA meeting in early 2013.

Yesterday I got to tell him that. I don’t want to forget this memory, for the moment when (and it will happen) all goes to shit and I find myself anywhere near a bottle and with spirits too low to fight the good fight, because this was one of the best things that have ever happened to me.

I hung back a bit, so I wouldn’t discuss something like this in front of too many fans, for both of our sakes, and eventually there he was, and there I was, shaking and mumbling and completely idiotic.

Things I imagined would happen: A polite response. A hug. A “Good luck, stay strong” kind of moment.

What actually happened. His face lighting up like an actual Christmas tree. The two of us high fiving each other when we exchanged success stories (Sober again after downfalls from last year for myself and him going strong for four years now, hell yes man!!!!!!). Him being genuinely interested and invested, asking and asking and letting me have a moment and allowing me to ask in return.

Something else I realised, due to something he said at the very beginning of our encounter, was this: It’s true that I am the one lifting the heavy weight, I am working the programme and attending meetings, and thus I get to take the credit. Yes, I agree 100%. But inspiration and timing matters, and both are vital in certain moments in our life.

Do I think I would never have gone to an AA meeting if it hadn’t been for me reading this interview at this particular moment in my life? No. I hope I would have found my way back either way at some point. But it wouldn’t have been at that precise moment, and that matters. The timing gave me more good days with my daughter, more good days working and enjoying life, rather than losing myself in the haziness of an addiction.

So yes, I believe that people like Daniel Radcliffe, who speak out and share their struggles publicly, get to take credit too.

So, I am sharing this photo that was taken by a kind stranger I met in the queue, to remind myself that someone else was proud of me for making right choices day after day.

guys...please...

I love hearing feedback on here, I really do.  <3 <3 <3  

But if your comment on my six sentence ficlet is going to be along the lines of ‘MORE?’ or “Where’s the rest?’, just know that I write nearly 200 of these things a month.  

191 on the queue for this month, to be exact.  

So say I ONLY write six sentences each for all 191.  That’s 1146 sentences. 

And those of you who know me, know that sometimes I get inspired and I will write WAY MORE THAN SIX sentences.  

So it’s likely way more than 1146 sentences.  I know my word doc for June was around 103 pages or so?  Approximately 34700 words.  So I mean…

I work on these every day.  I write these suckers on my phone.  

I take nearly 200 prompts a month and fill them all.  

So, every time I get comments like, ‘where’s the rest?’  I want to crawl into a hole and sleep forever. Because I know to you, it doesn’t look like much?  But to me?  

It’s every night. It’s 191 prompts.  

And as much as I love the likes and the reblogs and the LOVELY COMMENTS people leave in the replies…

please don’t ask me ‘where’s the rest?’.  I’m very likely to show you this post.  

I do this because…well frankly…it’s something I can contribute to fandom.  Even if it’s just six sentences, it’s nice to see something for your ship.  Or sometimes, it’s nice to throw me a crackship just to see what I do with it.  

I have FUN writing these.  And the second I stop having fun?  I will stop writing them.  That’s not a threat.  It’s a fact.  

So please…PLEASE don’t take the fun out of this by telling me what I’ve written isn’t enough.  Because that’s what those comments mean to me.  

And that is straight from me.  That’s not hearsay.  This is me telling you.  I don’t like those comments, please stop leaving them.  

I know my ficlets are short.  That’s why I call them ficlets.  That’s why I have a thing called six sentence saturday.  Because short fics are things I can write out super quickly in the short bursts of time I have during the day.  

I’m under no false delusions that six sentences is a long fic.  Nor am I trying to pass them off as such.  I’m writing something short, for people who like short stuff.  

The end. 

This has been a PSA that likely no one will see, because I’m posting it so darn late.  :P 

shout out to @ananbeth for dealing with me when I couldn’t fall asleep at like 1 in the morning and I started to headcanon this after and double points cause she headcanoned back xx 

jercy is great but I’d love an au where they never really become close friends

  • them always having this slight air of competition between them and being polite and all that to each other but they never fully let their guards down. 
  • Percy stays wary of the air, Jason stays wary of the ocean. 
  • they find that the rivalry between their fathers seems to follow them 
  • both boys being territorial over their home camps, not wanting to really let the other get comfortable because it’s mine 
  • when they spar it always gets a little too aggressive and sometimes they come close to actually hurting each other but come to their senses at the last minute. 
  • sure the camps are reconciled but Jason can’t help that he was born and raised a Roman, never built to trust the Sea especially as a son of Jupiter 
  • and Percy can’t help that he knows the kinds of things that Zeus is capable of and wonders how much of that nature is in Jason 
  • Annabeth asking Percy why he’s always so hesitant to hang w Jason and Piper and finally he admits it to her “something about being around him… It brings out a bad side. Puts me on edge. It’s like…the camps have made peace but our dads haven’t. It almost feels like being around Ares.”
  • then she notices it when Jason comes back from a CJ visit and it makes her nervous cause she remembers the panic in Piper’s voice when she talked about the Topeka incident
  • so Annabeth does her best to diffuse it but she can’t deny that they bring out a bit of the darkness in each other
  • them bumping shoulders and literally feeling a spark of electricity like a storm is fissling in the space between them
  • whispers from other campers don’t help either– camp half blood kids who have known Percy since he was 12 and comment how Jason doesn’t stand a chance against Percy who is undoubtedly the most powerful demigod in recent history; kids at camp jupiter who remember watching Jason take down a Titan and wonder how the kid who handed over a knife is supposed to compare to that 
  • one day Percy goes to the beach to clear his head cause he doesn’t like the way the tension is making him feel and his dad shows up
  • Poseidon plops down next to him and is like “now you see why we made the pact in the first place”
  • “I feel like you’re antagonising the situation, pops”
  • “You sound like Zeus" 
  • *gasps in horror* "that was low dad”
  • The only advice Poseidon offers is for Percy and Jason to stay out of each other’s way.  
  • “And what if that doesn’t work" 
  • "Then you remind that Roman why my realm was the one thing they never conquered." 
  • (That may be the coolest thing I’ve ever written no big deal) 
  • "Cmon pops you gotta know that’s an antagonistic thing to say" 
  • Poseidon chuckles "It’s just fun sometimes ya know”

guess who stayed up super late last night to make a matching GIFset from Heatwave’s PoV

There was a teenager saying dumb racist shit on Overwatch earlier and I called him on it a little bit and he said it was supposed to not make sense that’s his type of humor. So I went for the jugular and said, well I’m not a twelve year old boy so…

And he came back and was like I’m not twelve I’m- and I was like, oh sorry, fifteen? In that tone that makes a kid’s testicles rescind back into their body in rage.

He shut up.

Word to the wise, if you’re dealing with someone you’re like 99% sure is a rude teenage boy, call them twelve and then correct yourself over top of them to hit home that you are a real adult and their scare tactics won’t work on you.

This is a difficult technique, because tone is everything. You don’t want to be too rude yourself, so you have to carry it off like you’re bored of little boys and their little boy ways. This way though anything else they say will have to be filtered through the conscious realization that an unimpressed possibly cool adult is listening.

yellow-lions-paladin  asked:

Is it kinda cool kinda weird how much W2H has stuck with people? Like people keep doing art n stuff or are even now just joining the fanbase, for your cartoon from years ago now! That's so inspiring? Like, what does it feel like?

It’s pretty much exactly what you just described; kinda weird, but cool!  It’s hard to elaborate on exactly what it feels like, because it’s sort of changed over the last couple years.  I remember when it first started gaining traction, in the weeks after I graduated, and just being so excited to wake up every morning and check the tumblr tags to see what new fanart there was.  I remember seeing little milestones: the first fanart of Mephistopheles, the first AMV, the first cosplay attempts.  Maybe someone shared it on another website and I got a little more traffic on the video… it wasn’t even on Youtube yet, it was just on Vimeo, with all my other animation assignments. 

People started to realize that I like interacting with fans, so I’d get all kinds of questions.  I’d spend so much time typing, just elaborating on the ideas I had for the story, the characters, or how the universe would work.  What powers do demons have?  What are angels like?  I’d really sit there and think about my responses… I wanted to give people intriguing explanations that would maybe help give them some ideas, for their fan works, you know?  I gave so little with the actual film, but it felt like people were into it because they could sense that maybe there was a larger world planned, a bigger idea behind it.  I certainly wasn’t producing much in the way of a continuation, so that seemed to be a good compromise.  

I tried to reblog everything I could, and after awhile there was just SO much… I would sit down once maybe every couple weeks and just go through the tags and try to catch up with it.  I didn’t realize you could queue stuff, so immediately after I’d get a bunch of messages from people telling me how excited they were for my, like… bi-weekly stream of reblogs… just W2H flooding their dash or whatever, haha.  I got so behind, after awhile, and I’m only just recently trying to get back into it and get better about it.  

There’s been some weirdness to come of it too, for sure.  There’ve been a couple fans who were just, like… reeeeaaaallly crossing over some personal boundaries.  And I was as respectful as I could’ve possibly been with them, for as long as I could’ve possibly been, but at a point I just had to start ignoring some people.  I try to be helpful, but at a point, it’s like… I’m an animator, I’m not a therapist.  There were really only a couple pointedly inappropriate cases, but there was definitely a point where it felt like I just needed to take a break from it.  Some people kind of take interactivity for granted, and the boundary between creator and fan gets a little harder for them to see.  I don’t feel this is an issue any more, but it’s definitely been a little overwhelming a couple times.  There’s good weirdness and there’s bad weirdness, haha.  It’s generally good weirdness, which I’m thankful for!

There’s so many funny little things too, like… once or twice I’ve seen people who were pretty young when they first watched W2H say things like “Oh man, I can’t believe I liked this, I was so young back then…”  BACK THEN!  Of course it’s “back then” to a 15-year-old who was really into something when they were 12, and now they’re embarrassed by it!  Haha… but to me it’s like… idk, I made it when I was 24-25 and now I’m 28.  Like not only is the concept of “back then” totally different to me, but it’s also really funny to see a younger person looking at something I made, as an adult, and go “oh, I’m an adult and this is childish now”… haha.  It’s been interesting to see the fandom develop over the years, people coming and going… it’s really somethin’! 

I could talk about the kinda cool/kinda weird all day long, so I’ll just leave it at this!  Haha.  Thanks for the good question.  Lots of memories, for sure.

growing up :))

Me at the Howl At The Moon

General

I was an exotic for sure. I’m a tall, bearded guy with not much hair left. And although I’m only 38 years old, it’s almost completely gray already. So I stood out from the crowd. Disadvantage: Some strange looks. Advantage: I was easily recognized by the actors and the staff.
So I stood there with my Theo & Deuc T-shirt, my comic book under my arm, a bag on my side, surrounded by younger girls. I’m a high school teacher and so I felt sometimes like I was still in school :D And hell, I got deaf after some time. The screams! Panel opening: “Bienvenue à Shel…” EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKK!!! - “Please welcome Rya…” WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
The staff was always VERY helpful, all questions I was asking were answered in a very polite and helpful way. I really want to THANK YOU for your work, you did a great job!
So here are my impressions of the actors:

Cody Christian

He was the first I went to when the Autograph sessions started. He always had very long queues in front of him. I planned to introduce me as “The Theo & Deuc guy” but when there were only two girls in front of me, he already saw me, pointed at me with a wink and had the broadest smile on his face. Some minutes later, when it was the turn of the girl in front of me I could witness a scene that was so typical for Cody: The girl started to cry, overwhelmed by emotions when Cody hugged her. She sobbed really hard and Cody immediately took care of her, stood up, walked around the table to comfort her, talk to her, hug her again until he was sure that she was fine again.

And for me, this was the most impressive thing about Cody: The intensity with which he cares about the fans who came to him. When they are in front of him, he is totally focused on them, talks to every single of them, takes his time, never in a rush as if it was the only fan present and not a long queue waiting. This positivity and care are truly overwhelming. The signing session on Sunday morning was scheduled to last 2 hours and it took Cody over 4 hours to do all his autographs. Sure, his queue was one of the longest but mainly because he interacted with the fans in such a heartwarming, caring and lovely way. I could have watched this for hours.

But back to my experience: When it was my turn, he jumped from his seat, grabbed me and pulled me halfway over the table to give me the warmest welcome, hugging me and patting my back, excited and happy to finally see me. I told him how difficult it was for me to be in Paris this weekend (had the prom of my class the night before so I had to hop on the plane Saturday morning) and he shook my hand thanking me for coming. He explained where he got my books in his apartment and that he already reserved a place for the third issue. We talked a little while but I didn’t want to make the people behind me upset so I let Cody sign my issue of Theo&Deuc then. He did write a wonderful, incredibly long text into the book and again shook my hand, expressing his gratitude. Whenever we met during the convention, and it was several times, we exchanged fist bumps or he just grabbed me to pat my back. During the meeting room I was attending, he even introduced ME to the people around! He was in a very good mood, making jokes all the time and we even got to hear one of his songs. Not lying, I’m not a fan of rap. It’s just not my kind of music. But I really liked what I got to hear. It had a good rhythm, a very nice vibe, melodic elements in the background that made it - as someone who doesn’t listen to rap - a really good song. He explained to us that it’s not his goal to have a music career. He just loves to write and develop songs, to get into the flow when he works on one over several hours, it’s a hobby, a passion. And the result is definitely a professional one I truly would enjoy to listen to, though I’m not the right guy to judge.
The second day was kind of stressful, the schedule got messed up a bit because of Cody’s long signing session. I still had two autographs and two photoshoots with him. I managed to get the autographs in the morning but it was already 17h when Cody started his photo shoots and I had to leave at 18h to catch my plane. And I still had the meeting room for Linden that started at the same time! And here I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU to the staff again. One of them just grabbed me and pulled me into the photo room right to the photo booth with Cody. I had a special pose in mind - the cover of the Theo & Deuc book with Theo flexing and Deuc standing behind him with sunglasses, making a funny face. Cody said he loved it when we shot the pose. The staff in the background was telling the people not to ask for hugs because of lacking time but Cody just ignored it for me, hugged me and shook my hand again to say goodbye… So many fans were waiting and I was already so grateful that the staff made the shoot possible that I didn’t want to upset the others - and I still had to get into Linden’s meeting room. I was in such a rush - later, when I was in the plane, I felt so sorry and sad about it since I literally had to pull my hand out of his and cut the goodbye from my side which I’m very very sorry about.
Cody is a phenomenon. Even after a hell of a day, signing, panels, photos here, photos there, he hugs, smiles, is focused on every single fan and just shines. This guy deserves the world.


Holland Roden

I really really loved Holland. I caught a quiet moment during the autographs and she took much time to see through my book, reading some of the comics. She was so sweet and had to laugh about many of them. She said that Jeff Davis HAS TO see it and I could tell her that he received his very own issue already. Finally she signed comic one of my Lydia comics, the one where she gets hit by a snowball. Unforunately I didn’t book more stuff with her because when I planned Paris I thought that I would see her in Amsterdam and Brussels too but she had to cancel Amsterdam. I definitely would love to see her again!

Linden Ashby

Oh man is this a good guy. I told him my story about being a high school teacher who draws TW comics and later when we met again in the meeting room he immediately recognized me, saying: “The teacher.” And because I was late (had a photoshoot with Cody before) he added: “Always late.” He was reading the comics he was part of and enjoyed them quite much. I just love Linden. He’s such a gentle, reflective guy, so full of love for the younger actors and always praising their talent and passion.

Susan Walters

I had an autograph with her and oh my god is she sweet! She quickly discovered the photo of Gideon holding my book and was so in love with it that she drew a little heart on it. I deeply regret to not have booked a photo or meeting with her, if I ever get the chance I HAVE TO see her again.

Tyler Hoechlin

Damn is this guy charismatic. He has such a genuine smile and he was in awe seeing the comics and especially the Michelangelo adaptation (the creation of the chimera pack). I apologized that I didn’t make a comic with him yet since Theo & Derek weren’t interacting in Teen Wolf in any way. (Signature next to Susan’s in the picture above!)

Dylan Sprayberry

Since I will see Dylan in Brussels, I only booked one autograph with him for Paris. He recognized the printed issue because he has seen it in Cody’s apartment and this made me very very happy :) I was sorry that I didn’t have more comics with Liam (I have one planned though but he is SO HARD to draw) so I couldn’t show him more but until Brussels I will have more stuff to offer and I’m looking forward to meeting him again! I let him sign my Raeken Ball comic then.

Ryan Kelley

I will see Ryan in Amsterdam and Brussels, so I didn’t focus on him. But damn, in real life he looks really, really handsome, he is in a great shape and is quite charismatic! I didn’t expect it. He had to laugh hard at my hellhound comic in which Parrish ends up as a camp fire replacement for Theo’s and Deuc’s BBQ, so he did sign that. I definitely have to do another Hellhound comic to have something new for him until Amsterdam!

Ian Bohen

Ian was very cute! I got two autographs with him on different days and he remembered my name! I said: “Hey, it’s the comic guy again!” And he looked at me and said without thinking: “Chan.” So this was the moment he conquered my heart. I had to apologize I never did a comic with Peter. And I promised him to do one very soon. I think I might already have an idea…

Shelley Hennig

Shelley couldn’t stop saying “this is amazing”, she also loved my special Maleo T-Shirt. I should have talked to her more but when I was doing the autograph, I wanted to give her time to see through the stuff but she gladly accepted my business card with my Twitter / Instagram account so who knows?

The Carver Twins

Again, I will meet them in Amsterdam and Brussels and I didn’t have any time left so I didn’t get to meet them. So nothing to report :(

Meeting you

Whoever did come to me to talk to me about my T-Shirts or if you already knew me and decided to say hello: THANK YOU SO MUCH! It was so funny and such a pleasure to meet people who love my stuff. I even got to record my own “please record a video for our friend where you say hi to her” Video :D I felt SO HONORED.
Can’t wait to meet you all again!

character aesthetics: Estela Montoya (Endless Summer)

My father abandoned my family when I was just a baby. So I was raised by my mother and my uncle in San Trobida. My uncle taught me the ways of our family business. He taught me everything I know. How to hunt… How to fight… How to kill. My mother though… She always dreamed of a better life for me. A peaceful life. A safe life. That’s why she loved working for Rourke International… Because it was our ticket out of there.

  • Snow: How could you bring this Robin back?
  • Regina: You don't know what it was like. You weren't there! I mean, a version of you was but I killed her.
  • Snow: You did *what*?
  • Regina: Oh relax. She wasn't real.
  • Snow: But this Robin is?
  • Regina: Yes, because he was able to come through the portal.
  • Snow: How do you know no one else could? Did you try?
  • Regina: I feel like you're making a big deal out of nothing.
  • Snow: A big thing out of nothing? You killed me! Literally killed me! What is a bigger deal than that?
  • Regina: Why does that matter now? I've tried to kill you loads of times.
  • Snow: You know, as defenses go, that's not your best work.
Blue Sharpie - (chapter 1, might continue?)

I saw a thing that @misteriawoon posted, and it actually helped with my inspiration slump, so….so here. Minicat coffee shop AU. Because I have no originality.

“Medium Matcha Latte for Catherine!”

The din of the Starbucks didn’t fluctuate in the slightest. It was a bright Tuesday morning, the kind of bright that made you squint without realizing, and the light poured in from the glass windows blindingly. It wreathed every customer’s hair in stunning gold shades and made the cafe tables shine pristinely. The smell of burnt coffee beans and faint toilet cleaner permeated the atmosphere, completed by the sound of tapping laptops, small talk, and slurped frappecinos.

Despite such a perfect coffee shop aura, no mystery customer approached the counter.

“Matcha Latte for Catherine!” Craig called again, raising the strange green drink slightly higher as if it would attract its buyer.

It didn’t.

Music Series: Over and Over Again by Nathan Sykes and Ariana Grande

I hadn’t heard this song in a long time so it was nice to hear it again. I had forgotten there was a version he sings with Ariana, so I’ve given a link to the original and the collab via Spotify.

Give me romantic lyrics and I’m a suck-er. Anything romantic and I’m all in. The idea for this imagine came immediately before I even got halfway through the lyrics, so hopefully I’ll pop this one out a bit faster than I have been the rest today. Feel like my brain is in first gear and slowly oozing cheese because I’ve been writing so much cheesiness today it’s ridiculous! My apologies to those who prefer angst, just haven’t had the right songs in the queue yet for those. But never worry, do not fear, sooooo many songs in the queue, surely there are angsty ones awaiting you, plus I’m working on something else which will ooze angst like these have been oozing the cheese!

This is “Over and Over Again” by Nathan Sykes, with a collab with Ariana Grande.

Thank you for the request and for reading! xo

anonymous asked:

So I'm not even close to getting my first horse, and even if I do I'll probably get a rescue. But if I ever do eat a foal would 4 years old be a good time to start saddle training? I would do groundwork and stuff before just to get them ready to learn, and be used to people. But I keep hearing the horror story's of people actually riding their two year olds.

yes that would be a perfect time to start them. People will try to tell you it’s harder the older they get but they are trying to break older horses who haven’t been touched all their lives. Spending time doing ground work or ground driving and teaching them everything on the ground before getting on… will give you one hell of a horse in the end. I spent a year and a half of solid groundwork with Oakley before getting on him when he was 3 ½ and now he’s 4, has maybe almost 30 rides on him (i only get to ride like twice a month, it kills me), goes wherever I point him, listens to all my queues, neck reins, responds to leg pressure, never had bitting issues, and has not ONCE offered a single buck. The way you start a horse can change everything, put a solid foundation on them before riding and you have not only done your horse a favor, but yourself a favor too. 

Update!

Hi guys,

I’m sorry my account hasn’t been super active lately. Last month I got a new job, so I’ve been crazy busy lately (I work at a preschool so the days are absolutely exhausting). But the weather in my area is really warming up and it’s finally starting to feel like springtime! It’s fantastic ☺️

I’ve been thinking about starting a queue to add videos for me automatically, that way you guys don’t have to deal with my sporadic posts and the videos will be added on a somewhat consistent basis. Let me know what you guys think!

I have some good news for you all though - I will be accepting requests again!! So if you have anything you’d like to see, feel free to message me and ask 😊

Also, I realize most of you are here just for the stims and don’t really care about my regular life, but a few people have asked so I’m gonna remind you all again that I do have a main blog, and that you can find the link to it in my bio if you’re interested!

I hope everyone is doing well! If any of you ever need anything, my inbox is always open and I will do my best to respond ❤️

Take care all 😘😊😘
