i love this more than the original

anonymous asked:

hii love :) it's just.. I miss shakespeare harry, can we have a little update on how his life is going? if you're not in the mood thats ok

Harry is currently right outside of London. He’s teaching a high school English class, which is a lot more work than he had originally imagined. It doesn’t leave him much time to write his poetry, and the shift from learning to teaching has been a strange transition. He lives in a shabby little flat almost an hour away from work. There are waterstains on the ceiling and there’s always a pungent odor of garbage when he steps out the front door. He longs for his bedroom back in the States, where his mattress sat on the floor instead of on a wobbly bed frame, where he could sit at his desk with a view of the town and scribble his thoughts into poetry, where he could lay with you for hours and then smell you on his sheets for days. He doesn’t feel at home.

(I have a little extra bit in the works but idk when I’ll get around to finishing it I HOPE Y'ALL LIKE THIS XOXO I MISS SHAKESPEARE HARRY SO MUCH)

yet another follow forever on your dash

wow. It’s been an interesting couple of months that’s for sure, I’ve almost deleted my blog several times when life got crazy but so many of you have been so amazing and kept me going and I appreciate you all so much. 

honestly I didn’t think I would ever even create a new blog after I had to delete my original, much less that it would be any more than like thirty people following me who had been with me forever. But here we are, 1,600 hundred followers less and yet I have so many people that I wouldn’t trade the world for. This list isn’t in an order, I love all of my followers so much and I appreciate every single one of you.

Keep reading

FYI I enjoy reading your stories more than I enjoy reading the original outlander books whoops

Oh how lovely for you to say so!! Thank you, beautiful kind anon!! 💕💕💕💕💕

Not gonna lie: I’m thinking about studying Japanese at the university because the guys who translated the most recent Sonic Forces trailers and tweets and the people who can compare the original and the translated game scripts inspired me. I’d love to give that kind of contribution to the fanbase.

That’ll be a bit awkward to explain to people, but hey, Sonic’s been influencing my life since I was 8, why do things have to change now?

i’ve been bitten by the zutara bug once more so heres some headcanons no one asked for
  • if firelord zuko and firelady katara cant solve an issue diplomatically, they’ll both sneak out at night tsr ninja-style and solved the problem the old fashioned way. eventually when their kids get older they find out and also have to be included
  • katara often makes tea with iroh, who claims that tea tastes best when she’s involved bending the water to flatter her (i can totally see iroh lowkey flirting with her to piss zuko off tho)
  • for katara’s first birthday with zuko, he spends hours personally searching the fire palace’s ancient vaults and finds Southern waterbending scrolls to give her
  • eating together. sparring together. bathing together
  • also zuko is very invested in Southern heritage and culture and preserving and encouraging it even though they’re in the fire nation. he hires water tribe staff and advisors, and introduces new sections on the school curriculum to teach about all nations, customs and cultures. they even celebrate water tribe festivals together and honour their gods
  • of course they feed the turtle ducks together
  • as fire lady, katara has a massive role in politics, campaigning for the rights of marginalised people within the fire nation and beyond, and is a catalyst for seismic social change instead of just being the avatars gf lol im not salty
  • growing up in the rural, patriarchal South, katara never quite gets used to royal life and its perks, and is too polite to the servants to the point of awkwardness, much to the other royals’ amusement
  • she advocates for them getting pets. soon, the fire palace is brought alive by the pitter-patter of furry feet, and iroh claims it has never been better since her arrival
  • when katara is pregnant, zuko won’t let her lift a finger and frets constantly about the baby
  • katara tries smoking after being teased mercilessly by her husband for being uncultured. it’s the first and last time she smokes
  • their children wear blue and red, as well as purple. the royal family are responsible for starting a purple trend in the fire nation
  • iroh and hakoda are very close and tease their respective children mercilessly
  • they often double date with other members of the gaang. iroh regularly shows up late to these gatherings with a date of his own
  • katara loathes fire nation delicacies and introduces more mild, palatable dishes to the kitchen. the multi-cultural palace staff are eternally grateful
  • katara bemoans the dark décor of the palace and endeavours to make over the fire palace with iroh in zuko’s absence. katara thinks a hint of water tribe blue would brighten the place, as iroh tries to add earth green and air yellow to the palace. in the end, they settle on more windows and gold to replace black as katara bends more ponds in the gardens. she also hires master earthbending florists for the gardens. the palace has never looked more bright or more beautiful
  • at fire nation only events, katara dons traditional red garb with minimal blue. at multi-cultural gatherings she wears full water tribe regalia to honour her culture, and asks zuko to wear something blue also
  • they both swear by agni, as well as tui and la
  • zuko bans agni kais and discourages political marriages, using katara as an example
  • he always carries a small bottle of water with him just in case katara happens to be without her water skins
  • when she gets too homesick, he lets her to take time off (even when she refuses to) to waterbend, or visit home. as well as that, he constantly surprises her by having her family over to visit without her knowledge

The Astral Body

Disclaimer: Everyone’s astral experiences are different. While the astralling community may agree for the most part on the following things, you may still experience and believe different things. And that’s okay! ;D *musical flourish*

Your astral body can be wildly different from your physical body:

  • Sexual and romantic tastes can differ between astral and physical.
  • Gender and sex can differ between astral and physical.
  • Shapeshifting is possible with the astral body.
  • Even throughout different lives and forms, your being has a core that remains unchanged. This could be known as a “soul”.

There are different kinds of astral bodies/astral experiences:

  • Some astralling is not permanent; you make a body to astral temporarily and it vanishes/dissolves when you’re done.
  • Some astralling is semi-permanent; you have an astral self that’s “stored” in your physical body.
  • Then there’s physical semi-permanent where, on physical realms, you form a physical body but it’s only active when you use it.
  • Then there’s permanent-permanent when you’re “tuning into” another body/consciousness with its own life that does its own thing even when not in use.

Your astral body and physical body can influence each other:

  • Injury/sickness in astral can affect physical. For example, many people who have been in astral fights wake up the next morning with pains where they were hurt in battle.
  • Injury/sickness in the physical can affect the astral, but not as much as the reverse (as limbs can be regrown, the body is very “fluid”, etc.). For example, if you are sick in the physical, parasites may show up in your astral body, it may be harder for you to connect to your astral body, your astral vision may become blurry, etc.
  • You can get used to being one way in astral and then feel “off” when returning to the physical. You can have wings in the astral and then feel like you’re missing something when you return to your physical body.
  • If the astral body is killed or destroyed, it can regenerate using the physical body’s energy.

Your astral body can change depending on where you are:

  • You can remember some things better in the astral (past lives, astral experiences) than in the physical. They may be weakened, lost, or harder to recall when returning to the physical.
  • This is applicable to specific realms as well. If you have a fae-touched soul, for example, you may recall past lives while travelling to fae realms.
  • You may also experience shifts in your astral form depending on location. Some fae-touched people’s forms change when they are in their fae homeworlds.
  • Different astral realms differ in their effects on one’s astral body. Some things may be possible in one realm but not another. This can also be tied to one’s energetic makeup. For example, someone with angelic energies might have a hard time shapeshifting when in Hell.

Thank you to everyone who helped with the information!~

My TS6 theories masterpost

OKAY so as you guys probably already know I love making theories lmaooo and I have more than one so I’m going to keep updating this post with new information/new theories until TS6 is revealed!! 

10/13/17

So this is my original theory that TS6 will drop on Friday October 13th, 2017, because it is the last Friday the 13th this year and Taylor is hella extra™

ECLIPSE THEORY

  • Taylor blacked out all of her social media accounts as well as her website, store, youtube, and myspace… during an eclipse, everything blacks out for a period of time 
  • There’s going to be a total solar eclipse across the entire continental united states in a few days for the first time in 99 years
  • A total solar eclipse is usually a once in a lifetime thing just like this album
  • An eclipse often symbolizes new beginnings and a cleanse, which could make a lot of sense for this album after everything Taylor has been through in the past 3 years
  • Eclipses are extremely emotional/moving events, and Taylor has always been known to write about things that move people
  • Taylor’s tumblr fades from pink to black, which again is in a sense what happens during a solar eclipse: the light fades away to black
  • Taylor has posted several pictures while wearing stars on her outfits, as well as her star flash tattoo. Also, the newest TSNow promo from Taylor Nation looks kinda spacey.
  • Taylor sent a CD of 1989 to space and wrote “Going to space!” on it… that could have potentially been a clue!
  • Kesha said she was collaborating with another artist and used 13 emojis, so we assumed that it’s Taylor. However, the emojis weren’t just random, they were stars and meteors (and unicorns)!!
  • Before and after the totality period of a total eclipse, shadow snake patterns form on the ground. Taylor’s first post since the blackout was a gif of either a rattlesnake or potentially a dragon (see bulletpoint below).
  • If the gif was a dragon, it also supports this theory because there is a Chinese myth that states that a solar eclipse is a dragon eating the sun.

MASQUERADE THEORY

  • Social media is just one big masquerade when you think about it, full of people essentially wearing masks and pretending to be people they aren’t, as well as using it for anonymity 
  • In that sense social media is also very fake in the sense that nothing about it is tangible and oftentimes it’s superficial, just like masquerades
  • Taylor could have blacked out her social media and deleted everything to signify that she’s done participating in the social media masquerade
  • She could have been giving us a hint by participating in the IDWLF music video, where there were fancy masquerade masks present 

TIME THEORY

  • TS6 could be about time, or in a sense the lack of time… maybe the 13th hour? Because it only exists on the 24-hour clock, which isn’t widely used in the united states, so in a sense the 13th hour wouldn’t exist
  • On one of her posts on instagram the caption was “Til. The. End. Of. Time.” so maybe TS6 is about what happens when time ends, or when time stops… such as moments that make time seem to stop or slow down or speed up, or even getting lost in the moment
  • Taylor blackout out all of her social media is in a sense erasing her social media history, which could relate to the absence of time
  • It could also touch upon how time isn’t actually a real tangible thing, and is simply something that we use to explain how we go through life
  • Potential titles could be: epoch, chrono
  • A song was temporarily released on youtube titled “Timeless” (some people think Taylor released it some people think somebody was impersonating her); there’s also a website called timeless.com that says coming soon. The concept of “timeless” ties in perfectly with this theory in the sense of lost time, nonexistent time, or erasing time.
  • Scott Borchetta posted pictures about time on his social medias.

NOIR THEORY

  • So I came up with this quite a while ago, and it was because of the black and white pictures that Taylor had been posting.
  • It could also explain the social media blackout, since noir means black
  • The whole noir genre could make for a very conceptually interesting album/era

BLACKOUT THEORY

  • So this theory isn’t that well developed, but it’s simply because Taylor blacked out all of her social medias/websites
  • It could also have an interesting meaning as to how she could potentially approach social media in the future if this proves true

HAUNTED HOUSE REACTIONS (Part Two)

Click here for part one.

Artist’s note: Forgot to post on Friday. DAMMIT. Anyway.. just like in part one, there is a lot more backstory to write than I originally thought. If I had enough time, I would have loved to draw some of the extra scenes I’ve written. Anyways, enjoy!

Lila’s Italian via Google Translate, which might not be accurate:

  1. MADONNA SANTA! Questi ragazzi continuano a uscire dal nulla!
    GOOD GOD! These guys just keep coming out of nowhere!

  2. MERDA. Perché sono rimasto bloccato con lui?!
    SHIT. Why did I get stuck with him?!


The rest of the class that got regrouped are Nathaniel with Chloe and Sabirna, Mylene with Rose and Juleka, and Lila with Ivan. 

Nathaniel and Chloe are annoyed at being in the same group so they agree to stay away from each other. When a wall comes down, Nathaniel walks ahead with a little more courage than his other two classmates. Occasionally, he looks back whenever he hears Chloe and Sabrina scream. He does find some amusement as he lingers to watch Chloe lose her head. After a while, Chloe gets rid of her pride and latches on to Nathaniel, ordering him to get them out quickly. Sabrina is quick to follow her example. Nathaniel mutters that he wasn’t some butler at her hotel.

The next group to move is Rose’s group. She and Juleka encourage Mylene to move by telling her that they might meet Ivan along the way. They are slow as they navigate through scares and unclear paths. Mylene often sings to herself and closes her eyes while relying on Rose to help guide her. Juleka isn’t scared at all with how often she pauses to gush over the attraction. Rose does her best to stay focused while reminding Juleka to keep moving.

The last group to move is Lila and Ivan. Lila is upset over losing another chance to be with Adrien. When a wall comes down, she reluctantly follows behind Ivan’s large figure. After a bad scare, she is relieved to have someone with her instead of being alone. She takes back the thought when she realizes that Ivan doesn’t care about leaving her behind. 

After each group passes the exit, everyone expresses relief and triumph as they meet Miss Bustier at the souvenir shop. The reaction photos weren’t hard to miss since the display was designed for easy viewing. While inside, friends discuss their experiences. Alix and Nathaniel swap stories how they had fun despite having two unhelpful companions. Alix buys prank toys and Nathaniel buys a set of supernatural comics. Kim brags he never screamed while Max distinctly recounts his reaction every time he was shoved by Alix. Kim buys a wolf shirt and Max buys a bone watch. Chloe storms out, calling her driver to pick her up early, while Sabrina trails behind.

Mylene hugs Ivan, saying she was so scared but happy to have Rose and Juleka with her. Ivan hugs her back and promises not to leave her side again. Mylene and Ivan buy matching pins and hats. Juleka is a little shy about asking to work part-time with the scare staff. Rose encourages her as they make their purchase. Juleka buys special face paint and Rose buys a thorn bracelet.

Nino complains that he will never enter a haunted house ever again while Alya comforts him, saying she wished she got some insider exclusives. Alya buys Nino a ghost beanie and gets a candle charm for herself. Adrien and Marinette enjoyed the thrills and the rush of danger. They discuss returning on another day, both thinking the possibility of a date afterwards. Lila appears beside Adrien to ask for some company after her scary ordeal. He suggests she could stay with their group until everyone is picked up. Marinette tries not to smirk when Lila doesn’t get a lot of Adrien’s attention. Adrien buys some sweets and Marinette buys a poster. Lila buys a set of pumpkin jewelry. Before everyone leaves, Miss Bustier does a head count to make sure no one is left behind and officially concludes that the outing was a good learning experience.

On the next school day, Miss Bustier starts class with a surprise. She had purchased a reaction photo for each student. Marinette and Alya make copies and adds them to the class’ growing collection of photos. 

FACE YOUR FEARS commentary post!

I love the commentary posts that Toby has been doing, so i wanted to follow suit and give some backstory to the episode! It goes without saying that there will be spoilers, so mute #OK KO SPOILERS if you wanna keep your eyes and ears unspoilt!

This was the first episode that Haewon and I got that addressed substantial main story points! It was a very intimidating episode to tackle, but it ended up being immensely fun and satisfying to work on! Since it’s about getting trapped in a video game, i decided to lean hard into my nerdy videogamey roots and paid a lot of homage to games that left a huge impact on me! 

The Face Of Fear arcade machine:


The arcade machine was in Haewon’s part of the episode, but i couldn’t help making designs for it… and not only did she use it, she made it even better!! She designed the SUPER EXTRA HARD DIFFICULTY version that the machine turns into after Gar bites off more than he can chew!

Dendy’s explanation of how the game works:

I made a little video game overworld map segment to accompany dendy’s explanation of how the Face of Fear game works! This was a blend of three of my all time favorite games: I referenced MAGICAL DROP 3 for the general UI of the map because I love its aesthetics, I referenced the TURBO TUNNEL stage from the original BATTLETOADS N.E.S. game because that was one of the most terrifying and nightmarish stages i have ever played through as a child (a perfect fit for a game that is basically a nightmare given form imo), and i referenced EXOR from SUPER MARIO RPG, because that boss battle had such a huge impact on me when i first played it! Exor still looks really cool and badass to me, to this very day.

Enid’s Fear:

This is probably the most obvious reference, if you’ve ever played Chrono Trigger! It’s based on the climactic Magus fight, about a quarter of the way into the game! chrono trigger has been such a huge influence and helped me shape what my definitions of dramatic storytelling were, so i just HAD to give it a nod, even if its application wasn’t half as dramatic as the source material, hehe.

Rad’s Fear:

I can’t remember for the life of me if it was me or haewon that thought of having rad’s fear set in a room that was just a bunch of rad faces laughing and posturing (pretty sure it was haewon), but i DID draw this diagram of the room’s layout!

I have hit the image limit for this post, so i think i will end this here! There are more references in this episode, maybe i’ll do a part 2? maybe not? who knows! Thanks for reading, all the same! And to those who were saying that the right enid portrait in her fearscape looked a little familiar…

hello! i hope everyone enjoyed s3ep3! here are some BGs i painted for it, there were a lot more. this whole ep was a doozy to work on…lots to do, and painting “real world” stuff is always harder than fantasy or sci-fi stuff.

my favorite was the sewer pan that rick falls down! the original is 20,000 pixels tall. it took…………a long time…but it was really fun, i love pans :8)

i’m not sure who drew the water in these, i think it was both phil and jason.

seeya next week!!
