i never know what to call these things, but i’m going to show you how to do these 4 different gif effects in photoshop:
you can find the original gifset here. while this tutorial will not have any part about the coloring, and only how to make these different effects, it is really in depth for each and every step (with pictures!). so then hopefully this will be easy to understand even if you’ve never done something like this before. all you’ll really need to know is how to make a gif, and it might be helpful to have an basic understanding of clipping masks. otherwise these aren’t too complicated! this i a really long tutorial so here we go!:
Kat what are you thoughts about Bellarke canon next season,how you think is gonna go and when first half or second half. for me is gonna be in midseason finale or soon than that.
I go back and forth on this a bit, honestly. I keep my spec pretty vague as far as pinning things down to specific episodes since thats not how my brain works, but I definitely think we’ll get canon romantic Bellarke next season, and the midseason finale seems likely right now to me as well. I think that once Bellamy and Clarke reunite, they are going to have a lot to sort through emotionally (he thought she was DEAD for 6 years….DEADDDD), but we have to remember that Clarke never gave up hope that he was alive. She talked to him every day for 2199 days, dammit. If that’s not love, what the hell is??
Consider this: if they hadn’t been separated, I really do think that we would have gotten an overt love confession in 413. Character-wise, we didn’t for at least 2 reasons:
1. Clarke thought she was going to die. You can see it in her face in the Head & Heart scene. She thought she was a goner, and there’s no way she would burden Bellamy with that only to leave him. She was solely focused on his wellbeing, and the survival of the rest of Spacekru.
2. Bellamy literally could not accept the fact that she wouldn’t make it, doesn’t even allow himself to consider that. He’s in deep denial about the reality of their situation because he loves Clarke so damn much. He thinks if they make it to the ring, they all make it to the ring, Clarke included. He thought they would have 5 years of relative peace together and ANYWAY NOW MY HEART HURTS.
Side note: they are both SO GONE for each other. Their lives and happiness have been so wrapped up in each other for so long. They are each other’s person. They are each other’s rock. Anytime someone mentions the possibility one of them might not make it for any variety of pressing and probable reasons, the other one SHUTS IT THE FUCK DOWN. There are so many good gifsets that make this parallel so well, it just kills me every time.
Anyway, back to the s5 reunion…I do think the show is gonna draw it out a bit as far as the romantic stuff goes. Not too long, and not because the feelings aren’t there, but because when have we ever had it easy? Plus, it’s the nature of the genre: shit happens, and romance isn’t the main plot, even though Clarke and Bellamy’s relationship is obviously central to the story. There are so many plot reasons that could keep them apart for a bit (more physically than emotionally, but that too). Given what we know about s5 so far, the plot is going to be jam packed and develop at breakneck speed.
I’m a little worried about that, not gonna lie, because s3 and s4 both suffered from trying to pack too much plot in, at the detriment of character development. BUT even with that concern, I still believe Bellarke will be canon by the end of 5a, even if they get separated again at that point or some other plot contrivance intervenes to keep them apart. It could be the prisoner ship, it could be the situation with the bunker, it could be other grounders, it could be Cadogan?? (seriously I need more on that storyline), it could be Madi in trouble, it could be anything. Maybe Pauna survived Praimfaya and is out for blood (ok that one is fully a joke). Bellarke might have a love confession and then have to split up for a minute…or maybe it just looks like they do and they leave us hanging over the break between 5a and 5b DONT YELL AT ME ITS NOT WHAT I WANT but you know the writers love to make us suffer. And they do it so well.
Most important talk between Xena and Gabrielle in the show in my opinion
(Chakram: Season 5, episode 2)
This talk is so important to me
as it’s about recognizing and reconciling between the dark and the light. We all have dark and light inside us because that’s what makes us human. But what matters is that of which we choose to feed the most. This show quite frequently makes the case that sometimes you need the dark to help the light achieve it’s goal. This point is brought up very concisely here. Gabrielle states that the dark is necessary for Xena to do good. If she doesn’t have the dark part of herself, then she doesn’t have any sense of self at all, as that is what has led her to her light. To Gabrielle, and to the woman Gabrielle has helped her become. That balance of light and dark is what makes Xena… Xena.
You might not think it’s all that important just from this little gifset, but you have to think about it much more indepth to really understand how important it actually is. It makes you grateful for the life you live and for all that you’ve gone through. Because without it, you wouldn’t be where you are today. Balance is extremely important.
Imagine if you only ever lived in the light. Could you appreciate it? Just some food for thought… Sorry the gifs are so blurry. The HQ ones I have are too big a file size for Tumblr. But hopefully they’ll get the message across anyway.
So, I thought that I should maybe make a gifset of typically autistic things that Illya does. I’m afraid that I might miss some, so, please, tell me in the replies about your favourite examples or anything you can remember.
Also, tbh, I see Napoleon as neurodivergent as well, so, feel free to talk about him too. (I 100% see him having ADHD, for example.)
I don’t know if there’s a lot of people in this fandom who’s not used to being on tumblr or something like that, and that’s why I’ll say this! It is not okay to repost other people’s gifs! I repeat DO NOT REPOST OTHER PEOPLE’S GIFS.
What is reposting gifs? It is when you find a gif on the internet (google, tumblr, twitter etc.) and post it if you haven’t made it yourself. Some people will give you permission to post it, and if you ask someone and they say yes, then it’s fine to post it with credit. Otherwise? It’s not okay to post other people’s gifs (or fanarts or graphics or anything)
Why is reposting bad? Someone used their time to make whatever you reposted. Someone invested their time in making a gifset or a fanart or something like that. It sucks to see others get recognized for something you made.
Why am I saying this now? Because I’ve seen my gifs reposted on here, and hence it might have happened to other people too.
If I see my gifs reposted I’ll ask you to take them down.

“Looking back on it, I kind of think it was the best of times. Families, like life, have a way of changing, never staying the same, but they’re your family, this eclectic, deeply bonded group. So you evolve, you adapt. And now… As I look at my life and my new extended family, I think of this wonderful quote by George Eliot. ‘It’s never too late to be what you might have been.’”
