i need to think of something to tag the pictures with

If I could give a tip to writers out there that I had to learn myself (that took really long for me to learn) - it’s that not every line of dialogue needs a two/three sentence explanation as to why this character said it or what they were doing as they said it. 

It’s exhausting on the reader and the writer. It can be stressful, thinking you need to have every motion and emotion spelled out on the page - but sometimes it’s simpler to just…be simple. More so, it gives the reader a chance to paint the picture in their head as opposed to having it slow painted for them. 

Anyway, just a suggestion from something I know I’ve done before and have worked to improve and something I see a lot in the fics I read. 

Thanks for indulging me lol

Oh my goodness! While cleaning out my room I’m found one of my very first stim toys from when I was really little! I think my old OT actually gave this one to me!

I highly suggest chewy tubes and any brands similar to it for anyone looking for stimming toys for chewing on something gummy or need to squeeze something in their hands. (You should wash it off regularly if you plan on chewing it to keep it sanitary and all that)

Though I hear nowadays chewy stim toys can be a lot more discrete like those cute mushroom necklaces.

If Iwa-chan and Suga swapped places
  • <p> <b>Iwaizumi:</b> *has been at karasuno for five minutes*<p/><b>Iwaizumi:</b> I'm not leaving, keep shittykawa<p/><b>Sugawara:</b> *after 10 minutes of receiving practice*<p/><b></b> Kumini are you tired, do you need to sit out?<p/><b>Sugawara:</b> Oikawa stop picking on Kindaichi<p/><b></b> *five seconds later* Oikawa stop getting distracted<p/><b></b> Kindaichi, my new child are you ok was Oikawa hurting your feelings<p/><b>Oikawa:</b> IWA-CHAN COME BACK MR.

We Need to Talk

Hey.

I know its been a while but something came to my attention when I was on Tumbr yesterday and I really wanted to address it.

Yesterday, as I was scrolling down my usual tags, I stumbled upon this post (I’m not sure that the person who I’m rebloging from actually made the picture, so please don’t attack them) —> http://riarkle-dorks.tumblr.com/post/149825207318/moesha-corybaboonmatthews

Now I’m not entirely sure who made this picture or what they were thinking, but we need to establish that it wasn’t okay. I refuse to include that picture in this post for obvious reasons, so if you want to go and see what I’m talking about, click the link above then meet me back here in about a minute.

Done?

Good.

So here’s my issue with this picture and well, the shipping fandom in general:

1. Comparing Smackle and Farkle’s hug in GM I Am Farkle to Riley and Farkle’s hug in GM Texas Pt. lll is wrong for many reasons. The hugs weren’t the same nor did they have the same significance. To imply (as the picture was obviously doing) that the hug wasn’t ‘on par’ with Riley and Farkle’s hug shows a phenomenal ignorance to the events of GM I Am Farkle and the significance of the fact that Smackle was actually able to ease into the hug Farkle gave her.

2. Time for a comparison of my own:

As we can see from the gifs above: Smackle and Farkle’s relationship has evolved, along with Smackle herself. Due to Smackle’s relationship with Farkle and all the great conversations she’s had with him, she has been able to not only start to enjoy hugs, but in her words - “I love these now”.

No matter who you ship, you can’t deny development. And no matter who you ship, you shouldn’t twist the events of the story to make your pairing look better. Period.

I’ll be honest, I am no expert on Asperger’s, so I’m treading very lightly on the issue because I don’t want to misrepresent it and say anything that may not be accurate to those who are dealing with it or know those who have dealt with it.

3. Regardless of who you “ship”, denying the events of the show to position your pairing in a better light than others is not okay. Especially when it happens by trying to vilify a pairing that has had good development, has been canon for at least a year now, and frankly imo, has been one of the healthier relationships on the show. There is nothing wrong with being passionate about who you ship. Lord knows I’ve been overzealous about pairings in the past. But it is when people have to resort to ignorance such as this that frustrates me.

Are you not able to argue for your pairing with out discrediting another one and antagonizing the people who don’t agree with your pairing preferences? Is it really that hard?

4. This is for all the shippers. As a fandom, we need to do better. Period. This year members of this fandom have:

  • Made Rowan Blanchard cry due to false rumors that we spread about her.
  • Acted poorly and antagonized the cast during a live taping.
  • Sent death threats to the show creator because the story wasn’t playing out the way we wanted.
  • Constantly antagonize and spread rumors about one another.
  • Made an account just to slander @theowldetective in the fandom and spread rumors about her. That’s another post in itself but I digress. 
  • Gotten a member of the fandom banned from the live tapings due to the dangerous and problematic things that were said online.

      We have to do better.

I’m not saying that you have to ship Rilaya, Smarkle, Riarkle, Lucaya, Rucas, Zaya, Corpanga, and whatever ships are in this fandom. Ship who you want. IDGAF tbh. BUT, a blatant and offensive misrepresentation of a very significant moment for a pairing is not okay.

I know that this is the nature of online fandoms and I‘m sure this will fall on deaf ears, but for those who will actually heed the message of this post, thank you.

To Summarize: Antagonizing a pairing’s canon development around a serious condition which the writers were bold enough to talk about is wrong. Period. Don’t do it.

-A.I.

When writing, I’ve always had a little trouble understanding “show, don’t tell”. How do you show something about a character, rather than just saying it?

I found something called the camera test. If you took a photo of your character, would a viewer be able to see the traits you want to tell them about, just from looking at the picture? If the answer is no, then those are the things you need to show.

Show that your character is smart, or dumb, or naive, or pretentious, or innocent, or rude. Don’t point those things out. Let the character’s actions speak for themselves.

Back to Fives not being able to sleep alone he and Rex are seperated from everyone on a mission and Rex knows Fives needs someone beside him to sleep so that night when they're laying down he pulls Fives to his chest before falling asleep. Bc cuddles

GIVE ME ALL THE FIVES AND REX FEELS ANON, I LOVE THEM.

*smushes them together*

NOW CUDDLE

No… Fives… that’s not a cuddling face.

(And don’t anyone dare reblog pictures of Rex holding Fives while he’s dying because THAT’S NOT CUDDLING EITHER and I really don’t want to start crying)

But I love the idea of Rex having to cuddle with Fives in order to get him to sleep. And he’s thinking well… I gotta do something… so he holds Fives against his chest and admits to himself that it’s not the most terrible thing in the world, and it’s actually kind of… nice.

And our little version of Fives is all for it. Practically glomps onto Rex like a velcro monkey. And it takes several tries for Rex to extricate himself from the tangle of limbs in the morning.

Hey so I got a job and I start tomorrow! I’m going to be working the front desk at a vet clinic. I’m kinda nervous about it. It seems like the best job ever - very laid back and I get to hang out with dogs all day and it seems great! But I’m still kinda anxious because it’s always scary starting new things and you’re not sure what to expect, so to help me feel more excited and less nervous about it I’m gonna do a dog a day thing. I’m only working part time and only working 3 days a week so there will only be 3 dogs a week probably unless I choose to include more, but I’m going to try to take pictures of what I think are our cutest patients in the day and post them. 

I’ll tag it under “#bigolefangirl’s dog a day” or something like that. It’ll be fun right? I’m just trying to not get so nervous and anxious. I start tomorrow. if you guys have any better ideas for what to tag it as I’m all ears.

Love your art 💕 but I'm an incapable idiot who has no idea what I wanna do with my life so: How did you figure out what you wanted to major in? How the hell do you adult? And finally what do you do when a parent refuses to understand your dilemma?

Hey, you’re not incapable or an idiot for not knowing what you want to do in life. 

How did you figure out what you wanted to major in?
(Disclaimer: Don’t use my personal experience as an example for yourself. I’ve been single-mindedly obsessed with art since I was a toddler, and the only thing my parents and I could picture me doing was something visual. I fixated on graphic design, which happens to be a vocational major in an industry where you can make money. My major was directly related to my current career, but that’s not how it has to be.)

I think there’s a serious misconception (especially in the US) that you need to major in something related to the field in which you want to end up. That’s totally not true. Yes, a bachelor’s degree is pretty much a necessity for any white-collar job these days, but only because it’s proof that you can commit to something for four years. Undergrad is for exploring your interests.

For example: I have a colleague who was a classics major in undergrad, and now she’s a PR specialist here at our company. Those things are totally unrelated. She didn’t even know what PR was when she was in undergrad, but she loves her career and is super excited to go to work every day.

AND THAT’S MY ANSWER TO YOUR SECOND QUESTION:

What do you do when a parent refuses to understand your dilemma?
^ Basically, if your parents are giving you a hard time about not knowing what you want to do, just tell them what I said above!

How the hell do you adult?
I HAVE NO IDEA. And you know what? Literally nobody has any idea how to adult. Your brain doesn’t go through a magical transformation once you graduate high school or once you graduate college or whatever. Life is trial and error. Everyone is figuring crap out as they go! I saw a really good post somewhere that said adulthood is like a video game quest, and it’s super accurate! There’s a huge labyrinth of stuff you need to do, but there will be instructions. “I need to pay this bill. How do I pay this bill? Note on bill says go to this website. Go to website. Hello bill pay page, take my money and don’t turn off my lights.” Sure, some things are harder to figure out than others, some things have a clearer set of instructions than others, but just know that nobody else automatically knows how to do anything either!!

eemurp replied to your post: I’m looking for a new theme.  I want to have links…

You could probably do a page with each picture linked with the tags (IE /tagged/john smith/chrono or whatever) but i’m not sure if that’s what you want, seeing as you have a lot of families

I think that’s what i’m looking for.  I’m currently browsing character page themes from the RP tumblrs.   I might be able to adapt something like that to what I need.

i was tagged by @hypnotized-gays!! thanks, finn!

  1. favorite song? lol it’s both versions of stammi vicino, non te ne andare
  2. describe your aesthetic? my general aesthetic? hmm… it’s a lot of things, you know? it’s not necessarily just one thing, i think. it’s like the feeling of bliss and comfort when finishing a favorite book, vintage typewriters, the smell of coffee in the morning, sweater paws, red lipstick, flower crowns. it’s like doodles of the stars, fairy lights in lofty spaces, the smell of the sea breeze and the feeling of home that comes with it
  3. nicknames? angel is like… one of my only nicknames, but there’s cute stuff my friends come up for me it’s either variations of terms of endearment or something like “lasagna rat mom” or just “mom”
  4. the moon or the stars? i’m always a slut for stars
  5. your favorite shade of color (+bonus point for picture) i’m too lazy to add a picture and botch the formatting, but it’s basically a very tinted* variation of straight up primary blue and the html code is #CED1FF
  6. make up something that sounds poetic: a heartbroken cry made of delicate glass
  7. fantasy or science? i’m a fantasy ho all the way
  8. favorite part(s) of 2016? i made more friends that i actually like! while they are far away in distance they are definitely close to my heart. i also watched yuri on ice, and that really helped me get through 2016, for sure. playing mystic messenger was also a lot of fun, and so was reading the all for the game series by nora sakavic
  9. where do you want to spend your life? away from the toxic family
  10. if you could dress however you wanted (money is no object) what would your style be? skirts skirts skirts i love skirts and there would be like 300 more pairs of shoes but only of the heeled variety, and more sweaters! i love sweaters! and more flowy tops! and sunglasses! 
  11. what are your plans/hopes for 2017? do better, feel better, get better

i’m tagging @gaelaxaes, @soulffles, @hhermes@leiaoragnas, and whoever else wants to do this! as usual just feel free to @ me if you’re interested! 

* tinted as in adding more white bc idk it has multiple definitions but i love art so,,

10 Days Kuroshitsuji Challenge

Hi everyone! I hope you’re all doing fine! 

Some weeks ago, I felt like doing something to express my love for this amazing manga, so I started looking for a meme or those weekly challenges we often see here on Tumblr. Well, everything I found was too long or seemed too complicated, so I started talking to the lovely lawlietisawesome, and she encouraged me to create this 10 Days Kuroshitsuji Challenge. 

The prompts for each day are meant to be simple, so that you can quickly picture what you’d like to do. I don’t think they need a further explanation.

Some things to remember:

  • On Day 3, remember to focus on Toboso-sensei’s artwork only, and please credit the source of the image you’ll be using.
  • Since it’s a challenge, you are free to start it whenever you want, there are no specific dates set up for this. 
  • The tag we’ll be using is #kuro10days. So remember to check it out!
  • Of course, please use your own creations, do not repost someone else’s work.
  • If you have any doubts, just go ahead and ask.

I think that’s all. It’s pretty simple so I hope you guys get inspired and do this! ∩(︶▽︶)∩

*Thanks to lawlietisawesome for providing the beautiful graphic you see on this post, and for her overall enthusiasm! : 3

**Also, thanks to masterciell and trashbastian for helping me out too! 

Ghost Fandom Etiquette: 101

My dear lovelies.

I fear due to recent events, we need something spelling out loud and clear, and as the Ghost fam’s resident Mama Bear, I figured I should at least try. We shouldn’t be fighting amongst eachother. We should be unified in the love for this band. I do think, however, there needs to be some boundaries put into place that people can refer back to. So, this is my attempt at it. Feel free to follow it or disregard it accordingly.

Cursed to feel worse

* a curse  from myself that works on an artist. i just needed to write this for a personal reason. 

Intent: to bring someone to the brink of desperation, self hate, and emotional wreckage for days to come. For when those who don’t think must be forced to face their punishment. 

What you need: 

* a pencil

* Permeant black marker

* something the victim drew 

* water

* Nails

* jar that’s safe to throw and destroy

* spicy things

* food they hate

* drinks they hate 

* things ( or picture of things) that person likes

How to:

1) have something the victim drew ( this is the tag lock. it works better if its sad) and poke holes in it with nails as if to tear their insides out.  the things that bring them together. 

2) take the the pencil and scratch out all the ‘nice’ parts of your victims drawing leaving them with nothing but empty sadness now that the nice things in their life are gone.

3) take the water and smear it all over the drawing. making their life hard to make out and confusing.

4)  open the jar and put in the food and the drink. slowly stir and then add in the spices. keep stirring until the inside of the jar makes you sick. 

5) put the drawing inside of the jar make sure the drawing gets destroyed. Add in the things that person likes. As it gets added into their sea of poison, they lose interest and only see misery in what once made them smile. 

6) close the jar and seal it up tight. Get the black market and write their name on the jar. 

7) Shake the Jar and then destroy it (in a safe place). Turn around and do not look back.

Months ago, someone prompted a friends-to-lovers AU but then I started thinking about going the other direction. Like a complete 180, lovers-to-friends canon!verse fic. Like…

Oliver pulls away a bit post-finale/diagnosis and explains to Connor that he needs time to think and process and get his balance back. Get back to normal, or his new normal at any rate. And Connor totally understands. He sits there and nods along, makes appropriate noises of sympathy and understanding, offers to tag along to meetings or appointments if Oliver needs. Just, on the whole, Connor is the picture of a supportive boyfriend. But then Oliver delivers the kicker. He doesn’t want a boyfriend. At least, not right now. Not with this. There’s too much right now with this. 


“So,” Connor clears his throat, debating the words to use for this. He can barely think over the rushing of his ears and insane desire to grab on to the arm of Oliver’s jacket and never let go. “You’re saying you want to break up?”

Oliver wants to gently remind that We aren’t even officially back together but holds it back. He doesn’t want to open up that Pandora’s Box right now. Instead he says, “No. I’m saying I want to take a break.” Oliver picks at the cardboard sleeve on his coffee cup and wishes he hadn’t gulped it all down right away. He wishes for the distraction of it. “Not just a break from us – from whatever we are – I want to take a break from the whole thing. Dating, going out, just all of it. I need – I need to take a break.”

“Okay. Okay. That sounds good. Smart. That seems like – like a good thing to do.” Connor nods. 

And then he just keeps nodding. He can’t stop nodding. Why can’t he stop nodding? Why can’t he think of anything to say? Oh god. The silence between them is stretching. It’s been too long since he last said something and he knows it’s still his turn in the conversation. Oliver’s done. He’s said his piece. Oliver’s said what he wanted to say and now Connor is just sitting across from him, nodding along like an idiot. Say something! 

“Can-” Connor coughs to clear his throat and buy a millisecond of time. Now that he’s started, he curses himself for ever opening his mouth. “Can we – I mean – would it be okay if we – not like dating or anything but like being together – or not being together but would it be okay if we kept – like Thorn Birds and dinner and hanging out and–”

Oliver smiles, small and low, as he watches Connor bumble over the words. The confident man with the slick smile is tripping over himself, unsure and unsteady, and Oliver tries not to find it adorable. Who would have ever thought a man like Connor could ever get flustered over a man like him? “Are you asking if we can still be friends?”

“Yeah.” Connor looks up then, grateful for the lifeline, and hopes against hope Oliver agrees.

Got an ask on the main blog in response to some recent shenanigans that asked about an evil Fluffy. It’s not something I’d want to actually answer on the blog but I like drawing evil Fluffy so I drew this as a semi-response to it.

Evil Fluffy is obsessive, possibly yandere, and thinks that Grumpy would be much, much, much safer if they just… never leave the house. Ever.

The Houses + Romance

Hufflepuff: Will probably pick up a new interest/hobby in order to get closer to their crush. Likes dates that involve going out to eat or staying in and getting delivery. The kind of person who is content to just be around their crush. Probably likes holding hands.

Ravenclaw: Will only develop a crush once they know what they’re getting into. Hard to read, others may never even notice they’ve got a crush. Likes their dates to feel intimate. Very good at stalking social media- has only accidentally liked a post from 9 months ago one time. Good at smooching.

Gryffindor: Needs upfront communication above all else. Likes dates that are outside the norm, they need something more than dinner and a movie (think hiking or going laser tagging). Loves to laugh and needs someone who will keep up with them. They give the warmest hugs.

Slytherin: Sends pictures/posts they think their crush will like. The kind of person who stays up late talking/texting their crush. Stuck between “I’m worried I’ll say the wrong thing” & “They better like me for who I am”. Probably likes to be the little spoon.

anonymous asked:

so what are some Canadian stereotypes that are actually true? (aboot, really?)

i mean, is it wrong to picture u talking like terrence and philip?

Okay look the “aboot” thing is because you weird Americans open your mouths wide enough to eat an entire patriotic baseball when you say “about” (Abaaaahwt? really?!) whereas Canadians open their mouths a normal amount for saying words and not gargling sports equipment

Also no our entire faces do not disassemble when speaking

THINGS CANADIANS ACTUALLY DO:

  • Eat maple syrup directly out of snow with a stick
  • Apologize to people when you were at fault, when they were at fault, when you weren’t even involved in the incident, or when you moderately inconvenience an inanimate object
  • Talk about hockey even if you don’t like hockey
  • Born knowing how to a) skate b) balance while walking on ice and c) paddle a canoe
  • Eat beaver tails
  • Walk around in -40C weather in leggings/jeans because it is literally never “too cold” to do something.
  • Everyone has at least several variations on flannel
  • “Eh”

Anyway here’s a good summary from Kate Beaton:

please read: catfishing :-)

so we pretty much all know tristen aka alltimelw/punkarths, and while he’s a great dude i liked to think i was good friends with, he’s so completely catfishing everyone and it’s seriously time people knew. 

there’s this guy - Zachary Coles. here’s his twitter and here’s his instagram. full of the same selfies tristen posts. remember a few months ago, when tristen got a new dog? nope - zachary coles posted that picture of his dog in 2013. nearly two years ago. 

all of these pictures are of zachary. 

tristen’s got a lot of tumblr friends and he’s becoming more and more popular, so me and a few others figured this needs to be spread around before people get close to him and get hurt :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) 

if anyone has any more info, please add to this. catfishing is never cool or justified and i don’t care who you are, someone has got to call you out.

CREAMPUFFS I NEED YOUR HELP! Okay so. Something really strange happened today. The top picture is my drawing from about a month ago. Original and posted on instagram by myself (@dawpiro) imagine my surprise when i saw the exact same picture (clearly drawn by someone else) posted here on Tumblr (by @ourcreampuff.tumblr.com) under the carmilla tag…. so maybe i’m just crazy and overreacting but i’ve been working really hard on my drawings and tho i’m also kinda humbled by someone’s choice to copy my work, please stop posting other peoples art under your name. It’s disrespectful and also hurts the tender hearts of the artist who’s work being stolen/coppied :( (Also i’m a little shocked creampuffs does that kind of stuff. I mean. We are a pretty small fandom and tho a lot of us guys are insanely talanted, we still can dig up every art being posted on this fandom. Next time think it through)
