So remember that Godzilla design I did? I finally got around to actually drawing the rest of its body. By now it should be clear that this design is basically just ShinGoji with skin, but I just love Shin’s silhouette so much! I mentioned before that it’s incredibly well-balanced, with each part of it contributing in a different way to the overall image of the perfect giant monster. The massive legs provide much of its bulk, while the spry digitigrade feet ensure that it always looks like it should be moving, rather than simply sitting on the ground anchored by its own weight. The tiny arms make its anatomy distinctly inhuman, and ensure that its shoulders don’t break the overall conical shape of its upper body, which makes it look incredibly stable when placed on top of its massive legs. The ridiculously long tail serves multiple purposes, with its girth adding to the overall weight of the creature and making it look even more stable on its feet, while its extreme length draws attention to the wake of destruction the creature leaves behind it, and its highly mobile nature gives the whole design a sense of flow and energy that the otherwise stiff monster might not have. Finally, the five rows of densely packed dorsal fins give the back a powerful forward arch and further exaggerate its bulk, in addition to just looking cool and aggressive. The monster doesn’t move much, but its outline is incredibly dynamic, emphasizing its perpetual march forward, so even when it’s standing still, it always looks like it’s doing something.
People like to claim that ShinGoji doesn’t look like it can fight because of its tiny arms, but I disagree. The arms are short and skinny, but they’re organized much like a bird’s legs, with huge muscles at the base, and hardly any in the extremities. Godzilla’s deeply-keeled sternum and super beefy shoulders are all packed full of gigantic muscles meant to put as much power as possible behind its claws, while the arms’ short length sacrifices grasping range for sheer power, defensibility (they’re hard for an opponent to grab onto), and a surprising amount of speed due to the high twitch speed and short lever attachments of the muscles involved. With this in mind, Godzilla probably fights much like a sumo wrestler: ramming into its opponent with its chest and maintaining control with its arms while using its powerful legs and tremendous bulk to overpower and knock down its foe. Its low center of mass and wide stance make it particularly hard to topple over in this scenario. At moderate ranges, beyond the reach of its arms and head, it would likely attack with its colossal tail.
rukia must’ve felt so loved on her wedding day. like first she got the wedding veil as a gift from orihime, a veil that had so much love and warmth and happiness put into it(and she didn’t have to wear it for the actual wedding but decided to and that speaks volumes on how much the gift touched her!!!) then byakuya told her to be happy and he said it low enough so only she could hear because it’s meant to be a special exchange between just them before he gives her away(and we see how touched/surprised she was by his sentimentally in that sketch of them) and then she had shunsui give her the haori and in a way she was able to have a piece of both ukitake and kaien on her special day(since it was originally suppose to go to kaien) and then the karakura gang still brought gifts with them which took renji and rukia both back because they felt they did more than enough by just being there(the presence of their dear friends was more than enough for them!!!! so pure n wholesome!!!!)
Ok so I also really love the "gentle beast goes freakin ballistic" trope where Sidon and Link are just having a good time doing whatever and suddenly a bokoblin leaps out and manages to get a knock on Link and Sidon just d e s t r o y s them, but then once the threat is gone Sidon is back to normal and Link is like "holy sh-"
*slams fists on every table in existence*
I love this so much, incredible. Oh man, Sidon would be so worried he scared Link. If Link looked even remotely scared Sidon would just blame himself for eternity. The shark was just trying to protect his bae.
BARGES IN HERE hello friends its 7am and i haven’t slept and I don’t care because i am a bundle of joy and euphoria. After fighting tooth and nail and enduring 3 hours of busy dial tone and 3 more hours of bad elevator music on hold and repeatedly trying to get the website to work only to have it crash just as I was about to make it through the whole process– I’m now a proud owner of a VIA Rail 150 pass.
It’s an unlimited pass to the whole VIA Rail system ( my old ludger muse is nerding out so hard over this– ) that crisscrosses all of Canada. One month, I can go anywhere in this huge, amazing, beautiful country. I’m already working to clear my schedule, rework my plans, because this is something I want to do so much it hurts. I love travelling, and I’ve been incredibly lucky that I’ve grown up with the chance to travel so extensively all over the world. If there is anything I share with my muse, it’s our wanderlust.
I’m so excited I can’t sleep. I have so many plans that can’t possibly fit in one month. Train travel is normally so expensive I wouldn’t even be able to dream of it, yet here it is. The opportunity presented itself, and I might not have my life and money and everything else figured out yet but damn it, I’m gonna make this work
Just a bit of amazing news after a long, stressful few weeks. I deserve this, and it’ll be the best graduation present I can possibly give myself after I finish my Masters.

My favorite part about this kiss is how intense Dylan/Stiles’ face is. He’s kissing her like she’s his lifeline, the air he breathes. He’s so consumed in this moment, in this kiss, in Lydia. You can feel how much he loves her and how much this moment means to him. This is everything Stiles has spent the past 10 years building up to, and the intensity with which he kisses Lydia is like none I’ve ever seen. Lydia holds onto to Stiles, kissing him back just as forcefully, and we get this incredible moment that seems to stop time. I just can’t get over how much you can tell that this is quite possibly the most important day of Stiles’ life just by the expression he makes when kissing Lydia. It’s gentle and intense and heartbreaking all at the same time. You can feel the gentleness he possesses for Lydia, but it’s also this intense fire that burns hot enough to consume them both. It’s so amazing that these two completely opposite things can exist simultaneously in just one expression. Dylan never ceases to amaze me with how much he understands Stiles as a character and his unconditional love for Lydia.
You see this face? This is the face of a boy in the most beautiful state of disbelief to ever exist. Stiles stilinski has loved Lydia Martin for years–since the third grade–and has always seen her for who she really is. He listened to her when no one else heard. He paid attention to her when no one else did. He remembered everything she ever tried to hide. He knew how smart she was despite how hard she tried to hide it, and he only loved her more because of it. He never underestimated her. He never sidelined her or blew her off or thought of her as anything less than important. He complimented her. He treated her as an equal. He did anything and everything for her. He risked his life to save hers. But, above all of this, more important than any of this, he LOVED her. He loved her before anything supernatural tested the limits of their emotions. He loved her before they had to fight for their lives and the lives of others. He loved her when he was just a boy and she was just a girl. He loved Lydia Martin like no one else has, and when he knew he was going to be completely erased from existence, he wanted to let her know that. After years of confiding only in his best friend about his feelings, after years of everyone but Lydia knowing about his feelings, after years of silence, Stiles tells Lydia to remember in any way that she can that he loves her. So, when his friends have saved him, when the love of his life made everyone they know remember who he is to bring him back, he finally gets to hear from Lydia. He never–not once–acted like he needed Lydia to admit anything to him. He never pushed her or pressured her or nagged her or coerced her to love him just because he loved her. He simply loved her, but he didn’t realize how, all this time, that was what was needed most. This is the face of a sarcastic and cocky boy with a heart so big that it stores not only unconditinal love but also immense darkness finally having all the love he gave given back. This is the face of a boy who can’t believe that the love of his life–the girl he’s always loved–loves him back. This is the face of a boy who’s heart is skipping beat after beat because he can not believe that Lydia Martin has come to love him. This is Stiles Stilinski learning that he is loved. This is Stiles Stilinski in heartachingly beautiful disbelief because he loves the same girl that loves him.

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to commission @xfreischutz to make a card for my Inquisitor, Astraia Lavellan. The final result was more than worth the wait! Frei paid so much attention to details and had creative interpretations of my ideas, managing to take my massive amount of information about my character and distill it down into a wonderful image.
They were a pleasure to work with and I am so glad that I commissioned them.
