i like those angles the best

kogaylien  asked:

Hey! I have a lot of trouble with drawing eyes :( i struggle with size and shape especially... any tips?

Oh heck, hello haha um honestly I don’t really know what I’m doing, but I’ll try to answer as best I can!

I like to take pictures of my face and practice from my own eyes. here’s one and Here’s another one (this one’s a few years back heck)

those ones i just traced a base line over the pictures and then eyeballed the coloring. That’s really useful for getting shapes and angles down when the head is turned. good for drawing the same eye with different expressions and things.

I’m actually doing one right now for some new practice. this one I didn’t do a base sketch at all, I just started SLAPPIN’ color on there. I’ll post progress pictures once I finish it.

ALTHOUGH IF YOU DO THIS, I WOULD RECOMMEND SWITCHING IT UP A BIT AND USING OTHER PEOPLE EYES TOO. because I have a slight difficulty drawing girls with different eye shapes than my own haha oops

I would also recommend paying attention to lid shape, eyelash length, and the angle of the eyes as well as the basic shape. just little details that will set them apart from other eyes. 

learning from real life is always super great

here’s my eyes, compared to my sisters. just showing how related people have similar but different eyes

sometimes starting with a circle helps

the same shaped eye with different lids

size differences

for coloring: Eyelids make shadows. eyelashes make shadows. light shows through the iris, depending on the angle.

hope that helped you a bit. mostly just learn from real life for coloring and shape and everything. and then apply it to your style. sorry if this wasn’t that helpful or anything. I’ve been a bit scatterbrained lately as well as busy. I hope i wrote everything i wanted to D:

As a studyblr, I procrastinate. I have weak subjects, and I get stressed easily. I lie to myself, “Yeah, this won’t be tested.” I quit my notes halfway because my motivation runs out, and when it returns, my forgetfulness and lack of organisation means that I don’t remember them. I scroll through my dash and think, “Wow. I’m so much less dedicated, hardworking, passionate than these people. I’m so much less than these people.”

I receive messages in my inbox that say, “Wow. You’re so inspiring.” And I can never fathom how someone could actually believe that. 

And then I do. Because the words we type, documenting our day, and the photos we post, perfectly arranged - they show an impossible, unreal version of ourselves. The best angle of ourselves - neat handwriting, brilliant modesty, impeccable focus, and enviable responsibility.

Just like how you shouldn’t unfairly compare yourselves to magazine covers, because they aren’t real, you shouldn’t compare your educational journeys to those of other studyblrs, because they aren’t a full and unbiased representation of how other people actually study (unglamorously).

I’m sorry the video is so terribly short and a bit shaky… I was extremely excited to be at the most beautiful freshwater spring/old growth forest area of all time with my best friends and it was raining (I was desperately trying to angle/shuffle any water off my camera cover) 💗🌺 You can hear my bbs being silly and adorable while I gush like a total tranced out goober >_>

@cyanea-capillata @lauraleye I love you both and I treasure this adventure dearly.

Also, HAH. To the people who kept suggesting I must have edited the water in those photos of this place – NOPE THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE~

Can I be super negative for a second?

I am super disappointed that the ACOTAR series is being made into movies. I don’t think they will work as films at all.

Sorry if people are super excited for them.

The way that my brain reads books is completely in movie form (like most people probably). I provide camera angles, position the characters like I’m setting a scene, and when I think back on a book I revise or consolidate to what would fit best in movie form. (Do people do that?? idk. Like when I heard HP7 and Mockingjay were being split, I automatically knew where they would put the break and people thought I was crazy, but I digress)

When I heard that TOG was being made a show I was thrilled because you CANNOT put those books in movies. It’s too much material, especially later on in the series obviously. But with TOG, it is made for the big screen (or you know, little screen, whatever). Set pieces, grand finales, characters overlapping and puzzle pieces fitting together, action packed, etc

But that’s not how acotar is at all. If anything, it COULD work as a series as well, but with difficulty.

You could argue that Thorns and Roses could be made into a movie but I think it would be hard to make it have the right flow. Not to mention, Sarah throws a wrench in the narrative when Feyre goes UtM, it’s a complete mood shift, and UtM would eat considerable screen time. So everything else would be abbreviated- but you know, it’s Tamlin so that’s not too bad.

Then acomaf happens. You guys, acomaf will never work on a big screen. No way, no how.

1. It’s LONG. It is the slow burn of all slow burns. Movies don’t deal in slow.   Consolidating that slow burn into a movie would cut out INSANE amounts of character development.  As a reader, you love each of those moments between Feyre and Rhys, and how it helps Feyre SLOWLY heal and trust him and love him. And there are a million of those little moments. And with the highly sensitive nature of her healing from abuse, good luck putting all that in 2.5 hours without botching it, rushing it, or cutting out all but 5 scenes which will just make me so sad.

2. It’s introspective. There are a whole lot of things that happen in this book that don’t play out in the open. Not to mention that this is not an Action book like TOG, it’s a Feelings book. There’s a lot of sensing and thinking and internal monologues and reading others’ thoughts. When you are reading acomaf and every other conversation is happening internally down the bond, it makes sense. You know what you get when you put that on screen? annoying voice overs and characters staring at each other for an uncomfortable amount of time. There is absolutely no time for all that shit- UNLESS…

3. When you think about it, the whole book is already set up EPISODICALLY. Look, I’ll even give some of these episodes titles:

The Wedding. The Night Court. Locked In. The City of Starlight. The Bone Carver. The Court of Nightmares. Summer. Starfall.  Do you see where I am going with this? Call me, Netflix.

Basically I have a vision for how this is going to go and I don’t think a movie could ever do it justice and will probably make everything seem really contrived and rushed. Lastly, and just because I’ve been burned too many times by the film industry. I’ll give my predictions:

“Are you #teamtamlin or #teamrhysand? Retweet your favorite acotar man!”

White Rhysand. That’s all.

Side characters with any depth? What’s that?

Subtlety and and character-led story telling? What’s that?

Hi... I love ur blog :3 I have some problems to draw and I wish u can help me, can u? Please :3. What els, a few months I try draw a anthropomorphic dragon, but it's so difficult make the legs. I want u can help me with that, how can I do dragons foots on front and back view? And how sees when they flying?

Well! Dragons are generally reptiles, so looking at other reptiles is a good idea.

There’s lots of different kinds of reptilian feet, you could have something mitteny like a crocodile

or some pudgy toes like a gecko

or some very long toes like a lizard

It’s honestly depends on what kinda dragon you’re making!

To anthromorphise something though, you need to be familiar with both the animal’s and human anatomy, because what you’re drawing is a mixture between the two.

There is a lot of freedom to be had with drawing dragons, anthro or otherwise. Your typical western dragon looks something like a cross between a lizard and a cat, anatomy-wise


And you can find plenty of tutorials on this style of dragon, KyriaDori’s is very nice.

But! There’s nothing stopping you basing your beast on a crocodile for example

So don’t feel locked in on that one style of dragon. Have a look at and study various different reptiles and see what traits you think best suit your character.

But anyway, lets actually get onto drawing those feet. Dragon feet, particularly the hind feet, I find are often quite similar to human feet. Especially so if you’re making an anthro!

I think that the construction that N3MOS1S uses for human feet works very well if you elongate things a little bit:

Breaking things down into blocks and spheres will allow you to draw them from any angle you wish!

You can adjust the shapes to suit what kinda foot you want, like longer toes for a more lizardy foot

or more mass for a croc like foot

As for the legs, I again suggest reading KiaDori’s tutorial, as it’ll help you understand what kinda legs dragons have.

Then you just need to blend it with human anatomy until you reach a medium you’re happy with

13thblackcat wrote a couple tutorials on combining ungulate anatomy with human anatomy if you need some help with that process!

But again I’d like to stress that you don’t have to restrict yourself to one specific way of drawing dragons!!

as for the flying question, I’d go have a look at my bat wing tutorial.

Some extracts from the press kit distributed by Mongrel Media:

As the stage was being set in the Perlman house, the actors began arriving in Crema, where they got apartments, began preparing for their roles and getting to know each other. Timothée Chalamet, who had the most to do, arrived five weeks early. Hammer arrived shortly after, and Chalamet was one of the first people he met. 

“I heard somebody practicing piano, and they said, ‘Oh, that’s Timmy!’ and I said ‘I want to meet him!’” The two actors became inseparable in the weeks leading up to shooting. “We rode bikes, we listened to music, we talked, we went to meals, we hung out in many of the same places you see us in the movie,” says Hammer. After shooting commenced, the two rehearsed their scenes every night before shooting. The intimacy and chemistry that became palpable on screen grew out of the closeness the two actors developed in real life.

Says Chalamet: “When you first see Elio and Oliver kiss, and the first time they really make love, the shots play out for awhile. You see the awkwardness and the physical tension in a way where, if there were a million cuts, would be lost.” Says Hammer: “I think a lot of movie sex scenes are about: ‘What angles look best?’ But in this movie what you see are two people hungrily exploring each other’s bodies. And I think it feels organically like the first time you have a sexual experience with someone new: where there’s uncertainty, there’s that unknown, there’s all those things that you’re figuring out as you go.”

The famous peach scene from the book shows how eroticism is utilized in the film to illuminate the inner lives of the characters. “What’s going on with Elio in that scene is a combination of that longing for Oliver and also the all too relatable phenomena of not knowing where to place your overabundant sexual energy when you’re 16, 17, 18,” says Chalamet. “But when Oliver arrives, the weight of him leaving for what could be forever is hitting Elio for the first time, in addition to the shame and embarrassment of being caught in this almost feral act. I think the combination of those sensations proves to be tremendously overwhelming.” 

“When Elio’s character becomes emotional, that’s the moment Oliver realizes a line has been crossed that he didn’t realize was there,” says Hammer. “Now, instead of being domineering, now is the time for him to slow down. This isn’t just about me, this has to be good for both of us, and it becomes a really sweet tender moment where they both end up on the same exact page.”

Hot Stuff (Leo Valdez X Chubby!Reader)

Fandom: Heroes of Olympus
Pairing: Leo Valdez X Chubby!Reader
Word Count: 971 
Prompt Given: The reader is feeling down in the dumps on Valentine’s Day. Pretty accustomed to not getting any Valentines, kinda self loathing, until Leo comes along and cheers her up.
Author’s Note: Takes place at Camp Half-Blood, though I can’t remember if that’s right?? We’re just pretending that like all the demigods are at Camp Half-Blood for Valentine’s Day because why the heck not  <33

You sighed, resting your chin on your palm as you looked around you. Almost every single demigod had someone to share the day with, and they were all giggling and exchanging valentines.

It made your heart hurt.

You had never been the most popular girl in school, but even when you went to regular school, you could count on one of your best friends to buy you a cheesy valentine and a little box of chocolate. Here, you had no one. You weren’t really friends with any of the other campers, sure, you talked to some of them occasionally, but not often, and not enough to actually consider them friends. Well, there was one person that you considered a friend, but you hadn’t seen them around yet today.

You were just going to stand up and hide in your cabin, maybe read a book while your brothers and sisters were off with their dates, when you heard the step creak as someone sat beside you.

You turned to look at the person, raising an eyebrow at Leo Valdez, one of the sons of Hephaestus and your only friend at camp. “What are you doing here?”

“What are you doing all alone?” Leo questioned back, and you shrugged.

“Don’t have a valentine. Don’t really have any friends, either.”

Leo pressed a hand to his heart and pretended to be offended. “Excuse me, but I think you’re forgetting someone.” When all you did was look at him blankly, he pointed to himself with both hands. “Me! We’re friends.” He was silent for half a second. “Right?”

You smiled slightly. “‘Course we are, Leo. You’re just the only one, really. No one talks to me here.”

“Again, I talk to you all the time. And aren’t you and Nico like, creepy creature of the night buddies or something?”

You rolled your eyes fondly at the joke. “Actually, yes, but he’s not even at camp right now. He’s on some mission for his dad, I think.”

Leo frowned. “Well, that sucks.” He gave you a pointed look. “You need to make more friends.”

“Gee, yeah, sounds really easy when you say it like that. This is me we’re talking about, Leo. It took me a month to actually respond when you tried to talk to me. I’m not the best with conversation.”

“That’s because you don’t practice enough. Why don’t you talk to Piper or Jason?" 

You looked at Leo as if he were crazy (though really, he kind of was). "Oh yeah, because I can totally talk to Piper, who looks like a goddess, or Jason, who looks like a god, when I look like…” You sighed. “Neither of those things. That would end well.”

Leo raised an eyebrow at you. “Who says you don’t look like a goddess? From every angle I’ve seen you at, you look like a goddess to me.”

You blushed and buried your face in your hands. “You’re my friend! You have to say that! It doesn’t mean you actually think it.”

Leo’s eyebrows knitted together; he was even more confused now. “Just because I’m your friend doesn’t mean I’d lie to you.” Leo pulled your head away from your palms, but kept a gentle grip on your chin. “You really are stunning, __y/n__.”

You tried to look away, but Leo wouldn’t let you. “I mean it. I don’t know why you can’t see it.”

You pointed down to your stomach, a lot more pudgy than you’d like. “That certainly doesn’t help. I don’t look like Piper, or Annabeth, or anyone, really. They’re all skinny and athletic and I…” You sighed again. “I’m chubby and hate exercise with a burning, fiery passion.”

Leo was looking at you in desperate confusion. “You do know that chubby and ugly don’t correlate, right? Just because you’re chubby doesn’t mean you’re unattractive, and you’re not. Same with being skinny. I’m the scrawniest person ever, and most girls won’t look at me twice.”

“That’s because they’re stupid.” You said simply. “You’re hot, Leo. Literally and physically. I thought you knew that?”

He smiled, a little self-deprecatingly, and it broke your heart. “I like to act like I am. Ya know, fake it 'til you make it? But it’s hard to believe it when no one’s ever shown the slightest interest in me.”

Without thinking about it, without even really meaning to do it, you leaned forward and pressed your lips to Leo’s, kissing him sweetly. Leo didn’t respond, and when you pulled away, his eyes were wide.

“What was that for?” Leo asked after he finally found his voice.

“I like you. I just never knew when the right time to tell you was.” You smiled softly at him. “Now seemed like a good a time as any.”

Leo blinked once, then twice in surprise before surging forwards and capturing your lips with his in a warm, fierce kiss. Your hands came up to rest on his neck, lightly twirling the dark hairs at the base between your fingers as you kissed him back. One of Leo’s hands dipped down to your waist, his fingers squeezing your hip softly.

Leo reluctantly broke the kiss after a moment, his breath coming in harsh pants as you grinned at him. “We are quite the pair, aren’t we, Leo?”

Leo nodded, a bright, brilliant smile on his face. “We are.” His lips found yours again for a brief moment. “I hope you know that I am going to do everything I can to show you how beautiful you are.”

“I hope you know that I am going to do the same thing with you.” You responded easily, a hand moving down to his cheek and running your thumb along the bone.

Let’s just say that it was quite a good Valentine’s Day for both of you.

End.  <3

Heyyy! I want to say that I LOVE ALL OF YOUR OCS, and I want ask I question. Did you ever struggled to draw your ocs over again, bc I have problem with that °~°. I want to redraw my oc but it looks diferent every time I try to do that. Maybe u have some tips for this >.<

Thanks! Yup I do, that’s a pretty common problem. Here are some tips:

1) Pick up “standing-out points”

2) Draw your character over and over.

The first time you draw them feels like it’s the best one, however it is not the consistant one. You can’t reproduce your character exactly the same each time, that’s pretty obvious.

Draw them from a different angle with various expressions, those don’t need to be amazing overworked drawing, sketches will do. Personally this step works very well for me and that’s when I feel that my character came to life.

3) Imagine their story/personality before creating them

I’ve never really tried this step but I heard of it.. It gives you a general idea of what they should look like based on their tastes, importance in your story and personality.

Personally I think imagining a character clearly in your head first makes it a bit hard to draw them because your mental picture will always be better in comparison. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t, so just see the previous steps.


That’s all for me. Hope it helps, remember that everything stated in tips I give are entirely based on my experience/opinions etc. It may not be the truth.

“Daddy ! Take me with you.” you said extending your arms towards him wanting to be carried. 

“(Y/n) not today honey, I have an important meeting.” He saw the frown on my face “ How about next week? and we’ll even get ice cream.” He put his fingers on the corner of your lips and pushed them up turning the frown upside down. 

 You gave him the large toothy grin you had been holding in.  

7 years ago 

“Dad, why are we moving ? I like our house” you pouted 

“Baby girl, I’m a boss now and I need to be as close to the office as possible in case of an emergency. Don’t worry ! it means you can come visit daddy more often.” He flashed the same tired smile, he’s been giving you for the past few months. 

After he became CEO of SMtown. 

3 years ago

You heard the faint sounds of someone singing echo through the empty hallway, while you were taking your usual stroll waiting for father to finish his meeting. Unintentionally you followed the trail, your heart beating louder as you got closer to the source, you placed your hand on the doorknob, however the singing stopped and so did your heart for a second there, the door flung opened. Standing before you was a boy no older than yourself in a hoodie that reached his mid thighs, fluffy black hair and crescent eyes as he gave you a smile. 

“I’m Baekhyun, nice to meet you. “ He said reaching his hand out for a handshake “I’m new here” he added. 

“I’m (y/n).” you felt butterflies in your stomach. 

2 years ago 

“(y/n) I’m going to debut next year !! Can you believ-” he started coughing “believe it?” 

“Yea…that’s great Baek!” Trying to sound as genuinely happy as I possible could for the sake of not hurting your best friend’s feelings. “Are you alright ?” concerned of the seriousness of the cough. 

“I’m fine (y/n), why aren’t you excited ? it’s only been a year and I’m going to debut that’s like insane! ” He could read you like an open book and you hated it. 

“I am excited!” You tried convincing yourself, but you knew this just meant less time to spend with Baekhyun who’ll be so busy and broken from the amount of work and pressure there is, you saw this with many idols during your time in SM (basically your whole pre-adult years) 

He pursed his lips into a thin line, then continued by running his fingers through his now champaign pink hair. You couldn’t take your eyes off him, well you never were able to, honestly. He looked drained already and it hurt you that you had to see him that way, maybe you should have a word to your father about Baekhyun, maybe not. 

“Let’s go for some food (y/n).” He fingers wrapped around your wrist, you could see the small mole on his thumb, it made your heart flutter, goosebumps forming on your forearm. He was your kryptonite, his touch drove you crazy, your name rolling off his tongue made your knees weak, you didn’t want to admit it, you suppressed your feelings since the first day he opened that door. 

You had already fallen in love with Byun Baekhyun. 

“(y/n)?” Baekhyun snapped his finger infront of your face until you came back to reality. “Ah sorry let’s go Baek!” you apologised for your sudden trance, but like a broken record the word ‘love’ repeated in your head and you sighed as you realised there were no brakes on this ‘feelings train’ . 

1.5 years ago

You two had decided to have a Hunger Games marathon at Baekhyun’s house, because the boy had apparently never heard of the trilogy before, outrageous! 

You sat at one end of the couch while he sat at the other, the bowl of popcorn acting as a barrier between you two. You were grateful at how distracted he was, allowing you to steal glances of his through the corner of your eye, and how he was unphased when your hands had bumped when reaching for the popcorn, while you felt the blush creep up your cheeks. 

They had managed to watch the first part of the movie in silence since you didn’t want to spoil anything for baekhyun, however it reached the scene were ‘Katniss had kissed Peeta in the cave, while they were both hiding and treating Peeta’s wounds’ and somewhere deep within you, without even thinking, your conscious deciding to momentarily abandon you, 

“I like you.” you blurted out softly. 

You shut your eyes so hard, that your face was so scrunched up, praying that Baekhyun had not heard your unplanned confession. There was no sound from the other side of the couch, therefore you gather every ounce of courage you had left and decided to peak at Baekhyun.

Wrong move. 

His dark orbs were staring at you in disbelief, his mouth slightly hung open. “You like me ?” He asked still in shock and you nodded sheepishly avoiding eye contact with him. You were met with another silence. 

“Do you like me in a friend way-” Baekhyun had spoke again. 

“Please just forget about it Baek, pretend I didn’t say anything okay? Your my best friend and that’s enough for-” Before you could finish your sentence, you felt a pair of soft lips pressing against yours, “or like this?” Baekhyun finishing the question you had previously interrupted. 

Your brain was shutting off, it couldn’t quite comprehend what had happened, until it happened again. Those lips somehow ended up against yours again, releasing those feelings you had tried so hard to keep deep within yourself. 

Screw it, it’s now or never. You thought to yourself.

You kissed back, tilting your head to find a better angle, deepening the kiss as your right hand snaked around his nape while your left hand gripping onto his sleeves. There was a loud crash, you pulled away frightened by the sound, eyeing the bowl of popcorn now spilled on the floor. 

The room was filled with the sounds of short breaths and soft panting, his lips were now plump and pink, while his shirt was almost pulled off his shoulder (your fault by the way).

“When?W-When did you feel like this towards me?” You managed to stutter the question. 

“Since the day you shook my hand.” The corners of his lips were pulled up slightly. 

“Why didn’t you say anything about it?!” Baffled by his confession. 

“I was waiting for you to say it, I didn’t want you thinking I liked you because of your connections (her father) .” He admitted, his hand scratching the back of his head. 

You felt so happy, he was the first one who had not liked you in order to abuse your connections, it’d happened so many times over the years that you’ve learned to tread lightly around love. 

You got up from your seat and stepped over the bowl, standing between Baekhyun’s stretched out legs. 

Throwing away every last drop of dignity, you sat yourself on his lap, wrapping your arm around his broad shoulder before leaning in, forehead touching his, for the long, passionate kiss you imagined and longed for every night before you slept, but this time you had the hardness of Baekhyun’s chest under your palm instead of your soft pillow. 

To be continued… 

anonymous asked:

Why do you think the fandom find Azula hot?

Pffft. Don’t think I’m fooled for a second, anon. I know what your game is. Of course I know. I know it very, very well…

… but why not indulge you? xD

Since Jesus Christ wasn’t part of this ask, I am leaving religion alone this time. I’m sure the nuns from my school would be pleased for it (?).

Now, as it is for most fandoms, the Avatar fandom has no shortage of awful ideas supported by like 99% of the fandom community. This ain’t a place where the best ideas are generally well-known or supported, instead the worse ones are, and even cast and crew promote the bad ones, no less! I’ve seen absolutely ridiculous theories out there, debunked a bunch of them myself, yelled at people for hours about mischaracterization and misconceptions of characters from canon to fanworks…

… So, considering that the fandom has that sort of terrible streak, you’d think that something, at least ONE THING that’s actually true and wonderful will be supported by the majority of the fandom one day.

I’m inclined to believe that this wasn’t always as it is, but alas, times have changed. Many have come and gone in the fandom, and eventually, the truth came out, so loud and clear that NOBODY can deny it, no matter how hard they may try. The day has come when the fandom has reached a consensus about something, and I, for one, finally have nothing to argue with them about for once! Because the fandom knows the truth:

AZULA IS HOT.

So indeed, why did the fandom, after such a long streak of popular and widely promoted bad ideas, suddenly come to accept such a reasonable truth? It feels… OOC??? Can a fandom have enough personality to be OOC at times? Who knows, but it seems weird that after so long, they’d be so reasonable about anything. But let’s, of course, examine the pertinent evidence to prove the fandom is right, shall we?

First things first: Azula’s heritage. I am well known as an Ursa critic. Like, man, I could rant for days about all the wrong she did. I am also someone who ridicules Ozai ten times out of nine. Like, I can’t lie, I love making fun of him, because it’s just so easy?? 

But alas. The evidence:

Mr. Hot Pants is her father. Look at those eyes. Those ckeebones. The lustrous hair. His fucking eyebrows are perfect. His smirk is crooked in the ideal angle, like fuck you Ozai, cut this out RIGHT NOW. Literally, Sozin was never this hot. Azulon was never this hot. Iroh was never this hot. Only Ozai, master of the genes of hotness, could ever have achieved this level of perfect handsomeness.

And now, introducing the mother:

… Far from the best shot there could be of her, but cut me some slack, she doesn’t show up in any other episodes and most her shots in this one aren’t all that good? Still, if the animation was better she’d look better, guaranteed! My complaints about her as a human being have nothing to do with how pretty she is, and she is. It’s true.

But okay, continuing with my point… 

Ozai, Ursa, together? This evil plan was masterminded by Azulon himself, who said “THOSE GENES WITH THESE GENES WILL CREATE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CHILD, I MEAN, MOST POWERFUL CHILD OF ALL!”

For fan proof of the hotness of this pair, look here. For fan proof of hilarity of this pair, look here. For further hilarity, look here too.

Anyways, point in case being: if you have such good-looking parents (who are hella messed up in the morals and human decency department but that ain’t the subject), the chances for them to create a beautiful child increase exponentially!

And indeed, we have our beauty eugenics experiment’s results back:

So indeed. Science and genetics that I can’t use for Ozai (because we have no idea what Ilah looks like) are in the works here: look at this lovely, beautiful girl! She’s so pretty! She’s glorious!

And of course, why hot?

Science, again, answered that easily enough:

LOOK AT HER FIRE! THIS IS OFFICIALLY HOTTER FIRE THAN REGULAR FIRE, OKAY? 

According to the site I looked at?  “Anytime you see blue in a fire it is hotter than white.   The range is between 2,600 and 3,000 degrees Fahrenheit and its the most oxygen-rich type of flame.”

INTO THE INFERNO FOR REAL, MAN!

Basically, Azula isn’t just hot, my friend. She is THE HOTTEST. Only blue firebender we know! Possibly only one EVER! No one in this universe can get hotter than that!

So Azula, the beautiful, clever, smart, wonderful Azula, outdid her parents in terms of beauty and hotnesss. The apprentice dethrones the master, or something like that (okay she wasn’t learning from them but whatever, she still is prettier than them both XD). 

So, the fandom thinks she’s hot because frankly, anyone who denies it at this point is just trying to embarass himself. The Princess is the hottest. Only ignorant peasants disagree (?).

Myers Briggs Test by Functions

Rank each of the following statements on a scale of 1 to 5 based on how well it describes you or your beliefs (1 being not at all and 5 being describes completely):

  1. It is unkind to unnecessarily offend others; people should filter what they say in order to avoid hurting those around them.
  2. I think most things have a deeper meaning than what is present on the surface. I spend a lot of time contemplating what individual events or statements mean or say about life as a whole.
  3. When working on a problem, I like working with my hands rather than theorizing, finding it helpful to be able to create and see the physical results of a project.
  4. I find it fun to intellectually reason through different theories or ideas, even if there is no logical application for this type of knowledge.
  5. Once I find something I like, I tend to stick with it loyally instead of trying out new options. I believe there’s no reason to change something that works well in the first place.
  6. When considering one topic or idea, my mind easily jumps to related stories and other connections. Often people find it difficult to follow my train of thought because my mind jumps from idea to idea.
  7. You should stay true to yourself and say what you believe without worrying about who will be upset by your words or actions.
  8. People should be able to back up their assertions with overt facts, data, and reasoning. These will reveal whether something is true and logical or false and illogical.
  9. Life is meant to be experienced first hand. I enjoy sensory experiences like sports/art/etc. and taking in the world as I experience it rather than living in my head.
  10. I prefer brainstorming various options and envisioning all the possible ways a project/event could go rather than committing to one idea and sticking with it.
  11. I feel like it is my responsibility to consider the moral and emotional wellbeing of those around me; I like to advise my friends on finding the right thing to do and I deeply care about their problems.
  12. I am often thinking about the future and events that are to come. I have a clear vision in my head of what I want things to be like, or what I think they will be like. This vision is clear and focused and I like to narrow down the ways the future could unfold to one.
  13. I almost always know how and why I am feeling a certain way in a situation. When presented with controversial topics, I can easily understand what my personal views are outside of the context of other people’s beliefs.
  14. I am energized by wit, word games, puzzles, riddles: anything that involves my inner sense of logic and reasoning. I like breaking concepts down in my head in order to understand them.
  15. I am skilled at taking charge of a group, impersonally organizing people and implementing a plan of action. I have assertive and organized qualities that make me a born leader.
  16. I often consider new situations in the light of my past experiences and memory. I think about what I learned from past situations and apply these to my current ones.
  17. I am very in tune with my environment: noticing any changes that occur, completing physical tasks easily, and having an eye for aesthetics.
  18. I am good at looking at a project or situation and recognizing the flaws or weaknesses and proposing a method that is more efficient.
  19. I don’t find it useful to share my emotions with others, and it doesn’t help me to understand my feelings to talk them over with a friend. I can best understand how I feel in a situation by spending time by myself processing my feelings.
  20. When I consider the future, I think about all the disparate ways a situation could unfold. I anticipate every different situation without worrying about which is the best or most accurate.
  21. I am good at noticing details: small visual cues or other characteristics of my environment, how I’m feeling internally, and particulars such as numbers or dates, and have a good memory where I store this information.
  22. I tend to think convergently. I will focus on one situation or project and analyze it, spending my time interpreting it from every possible angle in order to completely understand it.
  23. I like the idea of reaching harmony in a group, and tend to sense and consider what other people’s values and beliefs are before making a decision. I like those around me to be happy with the decisions that are made.
  24. I think external methods of organization (such as corporation hierarchies or governments) are a necessary way of maintaining efficiency and maximum productivity, and I like to see how I can fit my plans and logic into an overarching system such as these.
  25. I look at independent experiences or situations and try to condense them into greater, overarching truths.
  26. Once something has piqued my interest, I want to understand it completely: all the little details of its inner workings so I can fully decipher it.
  27. I have a good memory. I can easily remember and place faces, names, dates, etc. even from a long time ago.
  28. Even though I am a deeply emotional person, I recognize the fact that feelings and morals are generally illogical and created by the individual.
  29. I recognize that there are many “truths” in life, and none of them are absolute over the others. I appreciate each perspective for its own individual frame of mind and ideas.
  30. I find that talking over my feelings with a friend helps me to understand how I’m feeling, verbalizing my emotions and hearing feedback from someone I trust.
  31. I would consider myself a realistic person, good at recognizing what needs to be done in situations and actually implementing it.
  32. I understand new situations best by jumping into it myself. I learn by taking in the sights and sounds of a place and interacting with it in the moment.

The terrifying lover who died – yet lived: Christopher Lee’s DRACULA films

Sir Christopher Lee became famous for playing Dracula in a string of Hammer Horror films (1958-1973). He portrayed him 9 times (7 for Hammer), often with his friend Peter Cushing in the role of Dracula’s nemesis Van Helsing. Lee also portrayed the bloodsucking count in a Spanish/German Jess Franco film and in a french comedy. But it all started with the Hammer series. Hammer Film Productions is a company based in the United Kingdom best known for a bunch of gothic films. Hammer was the first studio to produce a Dracula film in color with Terence Fisher’s Horror of Dracula in 1958. It is a bit different than the book by Bram Stoker – but like the book, the film begins with Jonathan Harker visiting Count Dracula’s castle in Transylvania. However, he is not a naive real estate agent who tries to sell Dracula (Lee) a house in London. Jonathan is actually a vampire hunter who works for Van Helsing (Cushing) and he’s on a mission to kill Dracula.

Harker is eventually bitten and transforms into a vampire. Van Helsing therefore has to kill him to free his soul. Bummer. In the book, Harker doesn’t die – and he was engaged to Mina not Lucy like he is here. Anyway, one day Lucy begins to behave strangely and Van Helsing suspects that Dracula has something to do with it. Horror of Dracula is fast-paced compared with the Bela Lugosi version from 1931. There’s a lot of blood and Lee looks creepy with his red contact lenses. Audiences in the 50’s weren’t used to that much red stuff. But compared to today’s movies, it’s quite tame. It’s also a low-budget film and they couldn’t even afford Dracula to transform into a bat. In the novel he can also transform into a wolf, a horde of rats and a mist, and he becomes younger when he feeds on blood – while in the film he doesn’t seem to have any special abilities at all. However, it’s a good film and it has that distinguished british look. And even if Dracula’s not a shapeshifter, it somehow just makes him more sinister. Lee only has 13 dialogues in the film – plus a lot of snarls. But he has such a powerful charisma that his presence alone says more than any words can describe.

“Murder, Jessica. That’s what all this is about. Ghastly, horrible, obscene murder!”
- Professor Van Helsing

Hammer’s second Dracula film was The Brides of Dracula and Peter Cushing returned as Van Helsing. But because Christopher Lee isn’t in it, I’ll watch it some other time. Christopher Lee’s second Dracula film was Dracula: Prince of Darkness (also directed by Terence Fisher) and it takes place 10 years after Van Helsing killed Dracula in the first film. Some morons somehow end up in Dracula’s creepy castle, and for some reason they think it seems like a nice place so spend the night. Dracula then rises from the dead, more grumpy than ever, and begins to bite beautiful ladies in the neck again. He doesn’t appear until halfway into the film though. Prior to this, the film builds up to Dracula’s resurrection. Turns out Dracula had a servant (he wasn’t in the first film) who wakes his master by killing one of the morons and pouring blood over his ashes. Peter Cushing isn’t in this one, but Renfield is, and the film’s gothic atmosphere gives me goose bumps. Lee is amazing here, but according to rumors he found the lines he was given so stupid that he chose to play the role silent.

The Dracula sequels had little to do with the original novel, and Christopher Lee has said he didn’t really enjoy being in them. But hey, I’m glad he was, because I sure do enjoy watching them. The third film in the series is Dracula Has Risen From the Grave. After Dracula was killed *again* at the end of Dracula: Prince of Darkness, Transylvania has become a fairly pleasant place to live. But… There’s always a “but”… Just read the title of the movie again and you’ll know what I mean. Yup, the count has risen from the grave. A priest travels to Dracula’s castle to banish the evil from the gothic castle once and for all. But it takes more than a silly exorcism to destroy the fanged undead. The previous film ended with Dracula falling through the ice outside his castle. He froze to death and drowned. Dracula is therefore not within the castle this time. When the priest leaves the castle, he cuts himself on a branch and blood somehow manages to drip down into Dracula’s mouth. Shit, you know what that means: Full resuscitation! This was Hammer Studios’ most profitable film and I really liked it. The camera angles make Dracula very menacing and it’s perhaps Lee’s best performance as the count.

Lee’s fourth Dracula-film for Hammer was Taste the Blood of Dracula (another cool title). This time the ruthless count seeks revenge on those who killed his servant. I’m a huge fan of the old Dracula films with Bela Lugosi, but I’ve always liked the Hammer films a notch better. Lugosi’s tuxedo-clad Dracula is perhaps the ultimate Dracula, but Christopher Lee’s interpretation is perfect. When he looks at you, all he sees is food. He is a monster and when he shows up there’s never any doubt that he can hurt you. Dracula has less to do in this film than in any of the other films. But I dig that he’s not overexposed. It makes him scary and mysterious. This film is a bit different though. You see, Dracula is almost like the hero this time. The same happened to Godzilla in the 70’s, but that’s another story. Dracula isn’t the most vicious characters in the film. For example: A guy gets drunk and abuses his daughter played by Linda Hayden. Dracula therefore hits him with a shovel. A heroic deed, if you ask me. Okay, so Dracula isn’t exactly the hero of the film. But it’s close enough.

Film number five, Scars Of Dracula, differs slightly from the other films. There’s more sex, blood and violence (Wii-hooo!) and Dracula has more screen time than usual and more dialogues than in any of the other Dracula movies combined. He is also more sadistic than ever. He doesn’t just bite hot women. He stabs people with a knife and takes pleasure in torturing people! Grrraaarrrr! This time Dracula is awakened when a ridiculous rubber bat spits blood on his remains. The film doesn’t really have a plot, but it is very entertaining. Let’s move on to the next film, my personal favorite, Dracula A.D. 1972. This funkadelic movie is also quite different than the other ones. It begins in a classic way in the year 1872: Count Dracula and Van Helsing (Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing together again!) are fighting each other in a cool chase scene. But they’re both killed and the film suddenly fasts forward to 1972. We’re then introduced to a bunch of party crazed hippies. The leader of the gang calls himself Johnny Alucard (Dracula backwards) and he’s a huge Dracula-fan. Alucard therefore decides to bring Dracula back to life (“Master, I did it, I summoned you!”) There’s only one man in the world who can save us from the wrath of the modern Dracula and that’s Van Helsing’s grandson Professor Lorimer (Cushing again).

“There is evil in the world. There are dark, awful things. Occasionally, we get a glimpse of them. But there are dark corners; horrors almost impossible to imagine… even in our worst nightmares.”
- Professor Van Helsing

Caroline Munroe (Starcrash) briefly appears and completely steals the show (what a woman!) as one of Dracula’s victims, and Stephanie Beacham plays Van Helsing’s daughter. The central characters are the hippies, so the film is a bit silly, but the Gothic tone is well-preserved despite the fact that the film is full of acid music and dancing hippies (“Dig the music, kids!”). Dracula A.D. 1972 is the most trashy Hammer film I’ve seen, but it’s very entertaining and like I said, my favorite. Lee’s final Dracula-film for Hammer was The Satanic Rites of Dracula. It too takes place in the 70’s, but there are no hippies or groovy music in it, and it’s darker and far more serious than Dracula A.D. 1972. It’s also the dullest in the series. At least the great Peter Cushing is back as Van Helsing, and here he confronts his enemy for the last time (in Lee’s case at least). The Transylvanian bloodsucker seems more like a Bond villain this time. He has a stylish office and he wants to exterminate humanity, instead of just biting annoying hippies in the neck. There’s also more action than I’m used to, and Dracula even employs an assassin! I’m a big fan of Hammer Films, especially the Dracula series, so it’s impossible for me to say anything negative about them. So, for me, this is another cool movie even though it’s… you know, bad.

Christopher Lee also made two other Dracula films. A french comedy which I haven’t seen yet called Dracula & Son (1976) and an Italian film by Jess Franco called Count Dracula (1970). I really liked Franco’s take on the series. It’s close to Bram Stoker’s novel and it begins with Jonathan Harker traveling to Transylvania to help Dracula with buying property in England. Jonathan gets a little intimidated by him and his spooky castle, and eventually he becomes Dracula’s prisoner. But he manages to escape and is well taken care of by Professor Van Helsing (portrayed by Herbert Lom). Dracula then decides to travel to England to terrorize the recurring Franco-starlets Soledad Miranda and Maria Rohm. Cool movie. I didn’t like the sudden ending though. Franco allegedly financed the whole thing with his own money and it shows. Dangling bats etc. Still, the sets are nice and gothic, and some of the effects are pretty neat – especially Dracula’s fierce disappearing act. Good films. And that’s that.

WIP: some words of jeremy/michael porn

I didn’t wind up answering either of those porn asks, so here are ~250 words of more Needy Bottom Jeremy Heere (aka best Jeremy Heere aka the only porn version of Jeremy Heere I am capable of writing), this time from a WIP whose working title is The Eight Things Jeremy and Michael Discover About Jeremy’s Body.

When he’s feeling vulnerable, too exposed and unspun, he likes being fucked in Michael’s lap. The angle is good for his prostate, lets Michael’s cock rub up against it easily while Jeremy just lays back against his chest, a solid, comforting warmth. It’s good because Michael doesn’t have to see his face, see just how undone he looks, but can still hold him when it gets to be too much.

He’ll press wet, sloppy kisses against the back of Jeremy’s neck and rock up against him slowly, get that steady, dizzying pressure on his prostate, until Jeremy shoots all over his stomach without even being touched.

His prostate is so sensitive that on days when he’s horny and itching to be fucked, it would be too much if Michael jerked him off. But coming untouched is its own kind of overwhelming, too; he hadn’t even known he could do it, until he and Michael had started fucking. It’d been a surprise, the first time it happened, a ruined orgasm and not a proper climax. He’d cried out, shocked, cock jerking weakly against his belly, and when he could speak again, he’d told Michael how it wasn’t enough, that he needed to come, to really come, and Michael had fucked him until he was right back on the edge. He’d gotten his hand on Jeremy’s cock, twisted around the oversensitive head, and stroked him through his second orgasm, until he was wrung out and satisfied.

That’s how they discover he likes coming more than once.

dracarys--stormborn  asked:

I know I'm kinda late but how do you feel about the TVD finale and what they did to Stefan? Especially when they said that Damon's better than him? Also, Stef had more chemistry with Elena while she was unconscious than any Delena scene lol.

So, as you all know by now I didn’t actually watch the finale, but I read about what happened on Tumblr and I saw a couple of gif sets, so I do have a couple of thoughts about the finale.

- About what they did to Stefan: I’m not going to lie, I would’ve preferred it if Stefan and Elena would’ve been allowed to ride off into the sunset together because they’re the only couple that made sense as endgame all along, literally the only couple. But since it was made abundantly clear that wasn’t going to happen, I’m actually quite happy with how it turned out. Because not only did Stefan do what he always does, which is stepping up and keeping those he loves safe, he also found peace, and not just peace, oh no, he was reunited with his very best friend and I kind of found that heartwarming. It wasn’t the happy ending I hoped for when I started watching, but under the given circumstances, I really think it was the best ending possible for us Stefan stans.

- About what he said about Damon: I’m not even mad, the show has been using other characters to prop up Damon through dialogue for years now. Stefan always excused Damon’s behavior, he always made it seem like something Damon was not, he always gave Damon credit even though he never deserves it, he has been pushing Elena back to Stefan since season five, so what Stefan said in the finale didn’t get to me because, well, it was big fat bullshit but it was nothing new.

- About the DE scenes: first of all, let me just say how happy I am they didn’t even get a conversation. Like, they hugged, they kissed, they held hands, and that’s it. I was prepared for something much, much, much worse. And then there’s the painful, hilarious lack of chemistry between them. Because not only did Ian choose to kiss Nina’s chin instead of her lips (no amount of slowmotion and over the top lighting and fancy camera angles can hide that, dear TVD crew), he also couldn’t even be bothered to not look constipated when he held her hand. Like, those scenes were so bad it still makes me laugh and it’s been weeks. xD 

- About Katherine’s “comeback”: I only have one thing to say: what were the writers thinking??????

- About endgames: when it comes to endgames, I have to say I found SE to come out looking best. Not only because of the fact that DE didn’t even spend the afterlife together (we’re supposed to believe they’re ‘epic soulmates’ but it was like Elena just lived her life as best as she could because she owed Stefan that and then she bailed as soon as she died xD) but also because of that final SE scene, the physicality, the chemistry. Yes, sure, the dialogue was about Caroline and Damon, but just look at that scene. Mute the scene and look at it, and it’s our beautiful SE endgame. Nina and Paul brought their A game one last time and it is something to be grateful for. Over the course of eight seasons, SE got the best lines, the best scenes, the best chemistry, SE actually had it all and the series finale reconfirmed that. They’re endgame, guys. Maybe not ‘technically’, but they looked and felt like the real endgame couple. Plus, that scene of Elena writing in her diary near his grave… Like, the diaries were something that connected them and when they got together, they didn’t need them anymore because they had each other to talk to instead, and as soon as they were apart, they started writing in those diaries again. Stefan was always the one Elena could truly be herself with, and now that he died, she dug up her diary and wrote in it while looking at the crypt where he was buried and there’s something morbidly poetic about it. It’s SE, it has always been SE. (I also have to add I loved that Elena left her necklace on his grave or whatever, because if Kevin did one thing right in that final episode, it was making sure everyone knew that necklace was always meant to be an SE symbol, he righted JP’s wrong with that and it’s awesome because now DE is actually literally left with nothing. Think about it.)

- And last but not least, about me being petty: and this is me being really petty, but can I just say how hilarious it is that Stefan chose to die rather than spending a single day married to Caroline? xD
