i put a lot of love into this ok

9

Ok, ok it’s Wonkyun…

One of my favorite moments is when Changkyun openly comforted crying Wonho–putting his arm around his shoulder, wiping his tears, holding his hand…super sweet! Taking care of his hyung~! I need more of Wonho leaning on Changkyun…

They mess around, flirt, and tease each other a lot but then they have such sweet, loving moments like this too. There’s a lot of unspoken love in their relationship that I adore–it’s so cute and innocent. I hope they become closer friends in the future. I honestly think their friendship is just blooming and we’re witnessing it in real time. What a time to be alive~

Hardcore Monbebe Challenge (14) OTP and a Favorite OTP Moment

wc friendship hcs

* i noticed that theres not a lot of headcanons that deal w/ friendships in warriors, so this is just me dumping my fave headcanons for whose friends w/ who in canon fmdfsd

- sorreltail & brambleclaw are like,,, best buddies. he’s one of her best friends after leafpool and they’ve always been super super close - she loves to tease him and calls him nicknames like ‘hon’ and ‘cutie’ and he gets flustered w/ how friendly and affectionate she is

- birchfall & berrynose are best friends and oh god. oh god. everyone knows them as the twin terrors of thunderclan bc berrynose brings out birchfall’s wild and jokey side and they both love to bug and prank everyone in thunderclan - berrynose stole the fresh kill pile while birchfall was guarding camp, birchfall and berrynose love putting little frogs in someones nest, etc etc

- whitestorm & tigerclaw were suuuppperrrr close best friends to the point where some cats even thought they were like, mates or something, they’re just INCREDIBLY close and were for their whole lives. lionheart became apart of that friendship later in life, but whitestorm got sorta :/// when tigerclaw and darkstripe became friends and darkstripe “brought out a bad side of tigerclaw”, in whitestorm’s words

- mothwing adores sorreltail. like whenever she goes to a gathering, she walks up to sorreltail and leafpool and sorreltail’s always like “THERE SHE IS THERE’S THE DARLING OF RIVERCLAN” and mothwing just loves how friendly she is

- bluestar & crookedstar were still really really good friends as leaders, even tho the sunningrocks dispute did get in the way of that sometimes. she talked with him at gatherings sometimes about oakheart after oakheart’s death - crookedstar would always talk to her about her kits and stuff and update her. she also has always thought he was a cutie [not romantically tho, more like ‘my friend is adorable’] and squishes his cheeks sometimes

- hawkfrost & reedwhisker were also super close when hawkfrost was alive, and reedwhisker was sorta hawk’s only like, real friend in riverclan. hawkfrost would talk w/ him often and they’d do stuff like hunt and talk about stuff, and reedwhisker was really broken up over hawk’s death

- blackstar & tigerstar were super close when tigerstar became leader, like they were the “hey man r u ok” “yeah dude im fine ilu” type of friends and everyone just sorta watched them like “thats weird”

- not a surprise that i’d put them on this list, but mapleshade & darkstripe are somehow friends in the DF. like they have this odd friendship where darkstripe is super annoying and talkative and mapleshade is like “you’re so fucking weird” but they give each other company and she puts up w/ her stinky buddy

- yellowfang and mousefur struck up a friendship in thunderclan; mousefur was like “hey you’re tired and don’t put up w/ shit huh” and yellowfang was like “yeah same w/ you?” and they became angry, petty, but soft at heart friends. they complained about petty shit to each other ALL THE TIME

- feathertail & tawnypelt were best friends and tawnypelt really really enjoyed her company; feathertail’s death sorta hit tawnypelt hard, harder than it did for a lot of others on the journey - feathertail visits her a lot in dreams and they just talk a lot

justeight  asked:

NO please this hc is life, no pressure to draw anything. Summer camp aus are my WEAKNESS--with perky lil Sora running around and SOCIALIZING while Riku slinks off to the photo cabin to hide in his darkness. But somehow among all the deep closeup nature photos, every so often, is Sora in sunshine. Idek if they'd know each other first in this AU but I love it thank you ;w;

I l o v e summer camp AUs. I think it’s because I had went on one when I was younger and it was one of my best school memories with my buddies

CAUSE there’s a lot of teamwork bonding and bonding in general in a rustic nature setting with fun activities and a lot of “UGHHhgh my parents forced me  to go to heckin’ SUMMER camp” that turns into “I’ve made like eight new best friends and I DREAD going back to civilization”

 and with soriku it’s that + “somehow I ended up getting a heckin boyfriend wth did YOU guys do”

I’M GONNA PUT THIS UNDER A CUT SO I CAN RAMBLE AS I PLEASE I GOT A LOT OF FEELS FOR THIS

I wanna say something, for a long while i havnt felt like it was ok to like sonic. i used to collect the comics, figurines, even draw some. But people would judge my comic choice, hate on the games i loved, and generally question it.. so I started to think it wasn't ok to like what i liked. But I really liked scourge, so while browsing i was excited to see someone drawing him. So I followed you, and you've slowly brought back my love of sonic. So i wanted to say thank you. :)

aaaaaaaaa~ I’m glad I was able to achieve that for you with my silly doodles nvn

haha I even remember the reason why i had made so many flipnotes with Scourge in them on Hatena when that site was still running was so that I could show other people that he was a really cool & interesting twist on Sonic (and a bigger dork too >vo ), and it did work! .o.

and thank you for the follow, and I do hope you’ll be excited for the next chapter of the comic i’m working on involving Scourge & his world \ouo/

no hate

yes. people have their opinions. yes, it’s ok to share them. but when you say stuff about how disappointed you are in their (bts) work, that’s really heartbreaking. they worked really hard on their songs and dances and they don’t deserve the put down everyone is giving them. if you don’t like the album then don’t listen to it. easy as that. please don’t go around saying how you expected better from them. many of you set the bar so high for them and it’s hard to reach that. please please respect the boys. they all deserve the best. (personally i loved the album but i see a lot of people saying how it isn’t them, it’s not something they would write but ok) they aren’t perfect. they aren’t always going to satisfy everyone. there’s no need to be negative about their album though. it’s fine to hear what you think about it but when you start talking bad about the members themselves, it makes me really sad. sorry for the rant btw, just tryna defend my babies

wyrmmaster: as long as we’re realID friends and on the same region(?) it should be alright to just form a party and it’ll sync us

Huh? Is that how it works? I-I don’t really know, so if you could Educate me in the fine arts and details of cooperative skull breaking, that’d be swell!

fangusklot: i was gonna join the one you have more on, moon guard

I’d actually love it if this was the case because I wanna play my Rogue a lot (I love Blood Elf Majima, it’s so fun), I was just a bit shy about asking because Moon Guard is a RP server so maybe that was off putting to some people, but if it’s ok with y’all, yeah, Moon Guard/Horde would be Best for me.

we always talk abt how slytherins aren’t all angry and evil, why don’t we talk about how hufflepuffs aren’t always happy and shallow? Just and loyal does not mean naïve and stupid, and the fact that everyone thinks it does shows how little kindness is valued. Hufflepuffs are the ones at rallies and marches, calling their representatives every day and night and running equality accounts-just. Hufflepuffs are the ones staying up all night to talk to their friends, jumping over tables to defend their squad and helping people through the worst parts of their lives-loyal. We are not all stupid and happy, we are angry and passionate. We aren’t all flowers and sunshine, we are huge signs and wiping away tears from our the faces of our loved ones. We aren’t put in our house because we aren’t smart, or brave, or cunning. We understand that kindness in the face of adversity encompasses all of those traits and more. We are not the children. We are not your leftovers.

Let's talk Lance

OK so I wanted to write this because I love how Lance has been written so far, and I feel like a lot of the fandom have sort of missed the important themes of Lance’s character development. Warning, MASSIVE wall of text incoming, so I’ve put the bulk of this under the cut. 

After watching and rewatching season 3, I’m convinced that Lance’s character arc has been handled very carefully and deliberately. I’ve seen a lot of people hoping for a big epic Lance moment where he becomes a badass in his own right and finally fits in etc. But in my opinion, that doesn’t fit Lance at all.

So far, there hasn’t been a direct focus on character growth for him, at least, not in an obvious ‘this episode is about Lance’ way. There were points in the season, such as the interactions with Allura in which he actually had a serious conversation with her, that show he has grown from the wannabe casanova he was in the earlier seasons, but no episode dedicated to his insecurities within the team and him overcoming those issues and finding his role.

That doesn’t mean his issues have been forgotten (see him believing he should step down from the team twice in s3), nor have they been ignored.

Here are some of my designs from One Last Score! I had such a good time working on @scrotumnose‘s idea for a Cutey Honey/Lupin III/Rouge the Bat inspired young Ginger. I put a lot of love into her design & collaboration with Dave & I’m so happy with how everything turned out! @brandonwuart designed her trusty sidekick, & S/O to our post production editors who did an amazing job plussing the sequence! I also especially loved translating @haewon-lee‘s Ginger w/her Marie Antoinette disguise into a final design because her board drawings were perfect. Ginger was one of the pilot characters I redesigned before I started on OK KO full time, so it was very cool to see her star in her own episode. Art direction by John Pham, & @kalidraws doing a killer job with the colors as always!

too-fab-for-youu  asked:

Your openness about your struggles with mental health and self-worth is so wonderful and refreshing to see in someone who is a role model to so many. You are so caring & loving & kind but please remember to take care of yourself first. You seem to put so much pressure on yourself to be perfect; I've dealt with OCD&Anxiety-type perfectionism issues for a long time-- learning to cut yourself some slack is so difficult-- But you are human and you are allowed to make mistakes! Lots of love. 💕

Well I appreciate you thinking so!! It’s a constant thing and so important for all of us to attend to! I’m happy to talk about it cause it shouldn’t be something to be embarrassed about or ashamed of. We’re all working through or living with different things and that’s ok! Love you as well!!

I was in the mood to doodle mouse-

And then it spiraled into this.. thing- WELL WHAT CAN YOU DO WHEN YOUR HAND SLIPPED

I think I remember somewhere in the fic that he mentioned he like Neapolitan ice cream or something? And how Rick also comment about Mouse not being “no chocolate or bust”- idek my memory fails me-

"A LETTER TO MY TEENAGE SELF" by SOLANGE KNOWLES

there will be fear. a lot of it. there will be triumph. a lot of it. there will be constellations you want to reach for but can’t put your finger on. you will trace them like the scars on your body you got from trouble and the times of your life. you will take the long way to get to these Orions. the long way will become a theme in your life, but a journey you learn to love.

you will dive head first without looking into phases that you are certain of who you are.
some of these stages include:

  • the dance-is-life (aka “this leotard is my second skin”) phase.
  • the Bible-thumping-church-camp phase.
    (which coincided and contradicted with the Fiona-Apple-fan-club-president phase)
  • the Nas aficionado-brown-lip-liner-and-Vaseline phase.
  • the Rasta-vegan-thrifter-who-is-determined-to-marry-Brandon-Boyd phase.
  • the football-player’s-girlfriend-who-wears-braided-blond-highlights-and-swears-by-capri-pants phase.

at the time, you are searching. seeking in every corner and pocket of the world for who you are. take your time, baby girl. there’s no rush to get there. you will sow each of these chapters in the land that you become. you will see bits and pieces of them scattered into the skin you grow into. you don’t have to figure everything out now. time will reveal itself. i promise you.

sometimes you push these phases to the max, and when you go out into the world feeling confident in who you are and what you reflect, young folks will call you names and grown folks will call you names. It’s ok. one day you will name yourself, and that name will belong to you. it will not be the ones they ordained: “crazy, ugly, attention-seeking, weirdo.”

i really hate to tell you this, but sometimes you will still get called these things as an adult, except you will actually embrace some of them. you will learn that these are just words. words that only have power if you choose to give them power. every once in a while they will hurt, but you will choose to turn those words into a symbol of beauty.

speaking of words. they might just be your first love. sometimes you can write for hours, just you and the words on the pages. they make you feel understood, even if it’s just you that you’re talking to.

trust in these words, even when you’re feeling wildly insecure. hold on to your journals. cherish them. put them somewhere safe so that they may become a guide for you later, a revealer and a friend.

the lucky stars have been good to you, and there’s a long list of things you’d like to give gratitude to them for, but for now thank them for these three:

  • that you didn’t die when you and your friends drove up a steep mountain in a snowstorm with no experience and bad brakes. that was stupid as hell.
  • that you went to the ensemble theater every summer. i really don’t think you’d be who you are today had it not been for those experiences, teachers, and experimentation with your mind and body.
  • that the universe chose your mom to be your mother.

she is a wonder. you watch her drop off 3 kids at 3 different schools in the morning, pick them up in the afternoon, shuffle each of them to their designated activities, and bring them all back to the salon she owns until she closes up with the utmost grace, love, and kindness.

you realize watching a woman balance being a supportive mother, building a successful business from the ground up that was started in her garage, and giving back to the community will make you feel invincible and like the word “no” is just an echo in the universe that you’ll never know. you often take her for granted, but you know with every joint in your bones that she is a phenomenon and you strive to make her proud. you should thank her out loud more, too; tell her you value her. roll your eyes and your neck less. it’s not as cute as you think. tell her you appreciate all that she does, for she makes the impossible look effortless. she surrounds you with other black women who do the same. you study them, and will constantly think of all their stories, their beauty, their strife and their stride. they break down all of the archetypes and stereotypes that you see of black women on tv and in magazines, so you don’t trust those anymore. you thank them for re-writing the script before it was ever etched in your memory.

because you have your mama’s blood, you are fiercely independent and outgoing. you’ve been starting petitions, building tree houses, and starting clubs since as long as you can remember.

sometimes in the midst of juggling all this, you put a lot of pressure on yourself and often crash and burn. you shut down. you go into your room, lock the door, put on music, and you do not move for 8 hours straight. it will feel like the heaviest and bleakest darkness you can possibly feel, and when you ask everyone to leave you alone and let you be, what you really want to say is “i want you here” and “i need help.”

sometimes it is ok to say just that. it won’t make you less strong or less powerful. no one you love will criticize you or blame you; in fact, they will lift you up.

seventeen will be the hardest year of your life. it will grow you up almost immediately. you will lose your best friend whom you love so much to gun violence in a single moment, and give birth to a new one within a year.

you will be terrified, and it’s ok that you don’t know what the future holds. some people will count you out because of the decision you’ve made to bring another life into the world so young, but you made the decision out of love and will live with the decision in love.

soon enough you will learn how to love and how to exist with love in ways that you never knew. you will learn how to love yourself and how to empathize with and forgive those who may have taken a bit of that pure love away from you.

you have a long life ahead of you, and i’ll tell you it’s not gonna always be easy, but I can promise you it will be fruitful and with much purpose. all the bridges you’ve burned, you had to, so that you could rebuild them to become a stronger and more wonderful you.

there will be pain, there will be doubt there will be beauty, there will be the unknown. there will be so many moments of joy and delight that the whole universe will feel painted in hues of amber and wonder. there will be times you are so sad you can’t lift your head. and there will be times you are so happy that the sensation of life knocks you down. but most importantly, there will be you. a whole, whole lot of it. and you will feel good about who she is and who she is still becoming.

  • Single Dad!Tom was an accident, but also the biggest miracle in Tom’s eyes
  • His daughter’s mom, a woman he vaguely remembered sleeping with one drunken night,  left her with Tom one morning as a “surprise” never to be heard from or seen again
  • He had no idea his daughter even existed, he wasn’t even sure she really was his
  • But her features were almost identical to hers, being a dead giveaway he couldn’t ignore
  • It took him awhile to process it
  • She was merely a few months old when her mother dropped her off at Tom’s penthouse without so much as a second thought
  • However, Tom was probably the most clueless person on how to be a father
  • He vaguely had memories of helping with his younger brothers, but it was never his responsibility to take care of them as babies
  • He immediately called Harrison over to help him figure it out
  • “Are you gonna.. Keep it?”
  • “Fuckin’ hell, Harrison, of course I’m keeping her.”
    • he says this while admiring the baby girl in the car seat who was still sound asleep
  • “You’re telling me you had no idea she was even born??”
  • “Harrison..if I knew I had gotten a woman pregnant don’t you think I would’ve mentioned it at some point??”
  • Tom finding her birth certificate and other important papers her mother left in a folder
  • Her name is Genesis, and he’s positive it’s the most beautiful name he’s ever heard now
  • He really struggles balancing work and taking care of Genesis for the first few months
  • He couldn’t decide on a day care and went to at least a dozen because he wanted to make sure it was perfect for his little angel who already had Tom wrapper around her tiny finger
  • He makes sure his assistant doesn’t schedule any meetings around the times he drops/picks up Genesis from day care
  • Everywhere he goes with her, he proudly carries her and her diaper bag
  • Loads of trips to the park as she gets to be around 2 years old
  • Pushing her on the little swings for a good hour until she’s tired and his arms feel like falling off
  • Sometimes when his schedule is free, he’ll pack them both a small picnic filled with PB&J’s and juice boxes
  • As Genesis gets older, Tom is really picking up on this whole parenting thing
  • He does his best to revolve his schedule around her little life
  • Bringing her into the office as often as he can just to show her off
  • She’s a really excited toddler and is always buzzing with energy, especially when she’s getting non stop attention at Tom’s work
  • She loves spinning around in his office chair
  • All of his employees LOVING her
  • She’s made best friends with one of the older women who work there, Carol, from the sales department
  • “Daddy, daddy, look!! Carol made me a bracelet!!”
  • Secretly, Tom gives Carol a raise because she offers to babysit Genesis sometimes and Tom is just so grateful for how much Carol likes her
  • He’ll carry Genesis through the building with a huge, excited smile on his face
  • On the weekends he makes sure to go all out and cook them big breakfasts with waffles and bacon and fruit and eggs and really he just loves doing things for her
  • She loves when he gives himself a whipped cream beard, her giggles filling the kitchen
  • dON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON WHEN HE AGREED TO SIGN HER LITTLE 4 YEAR OLD SELF UP FOR BALLET
  • Let me tell you, it’s the best thing that has ever happened
  • She begs him to practice in the living room with her, insisting she teaches him  
    • Although he has a few moves up his sleeve
  • So he’d put on his serious listening face and give her his full attention
  • But she’d pause it in the middle of the lesson to go put on her tutu
  • And she’d come back with a pink blanket from her room, begging Tom to put it on around his waist so he could be a “pretty pink dancer” too!
  • Yet she’s his baby girl, so really he’d do anything to make her happy
  • Except one evening when he missed one of her recitals due to an extremely important business meeting followed by ridiculous traffic
  • He finally makes it, but the little dancers are attempting to do their final bow in unison
  • His heart is so heavy with sorrow and regret and he feels like the worst dad ever 
  • But Genesis comes running to him when all is over and he’d pick her up immediately and start apologizing to her for missing it
  • “It’s ok, daddy, I still love you a lot”
  • He’d never admit his eyes teared up
  • Taking Genesis out for ice cream to make up for it and letting her stay up two hours later than usual
  • oH LORD THE COUNTLESS NUMBER OF TEA PARTIES
  • “Dad we’re british it’s normal for us”
  • “Darling, nothing is normal about daddy wearing this princess tutu.”
  • It was a contrast to his usual business attire
  • Helping Genesis arrange all of her larger stuffed animals around the table

  • It never fails to make Genesis laugh
  • Once he gets into it, he’s wanting to continue it longer than she does
  • “Ok, daddy I’m bored.”
  • “But Mr. Giraffe was telling me a brilliant story about-”
  • “No, we’re done.”  
  • Her first day of Kindergarten was the most stressful day for him
  • He tried braiding her hair
    • Keyword: Tried
  • Genesis letting out little heavy sighs as he tugs on her hair in an attempt to do the seemingly complicated twists
  • Tom moved all his meetings so that he could have the morning dedicated to Genesis’ big day
  • Loading up her little pink backpack with extra snacks, juice boxes, her favorite teddy bear, and loads of crayons and new supplies she begged to have
  • Driving his own BMW instead of having his driver take them because this was a big deal
  • Constantly checking on her in the backseat through the rearview mirror
  • “Daddy why do you keep looking back here?”
  • “You’re not allowed to keep growing up”
  • “bUT DAD HOW ELSE WILL UNCLE HARRISON LOVE ME IF I’M STILL A BABY”
    • Not to mention this little 5 year old had a slight crush on “uncle” Harrison
    • It irritated Tom to NO END
  • Pulling up to the school and Tom assisting her out of her car seat, helping her little legs reach the ground of the car
  • Him holding her hand and guiding her to her classroom
  • He feels very out of place since the room is filled with mainly moms
  • Loads of moms staring at the gorgeous man ???
  • Giving polite smiles to them and he swears he heard one of them say, “I’d get a divorce for that one over there,” while pointing to him
  • He’s really flattered but all he wants to focus on is Genesis

  • The teacher starts dismissing parents and Tom really doesn’t want to leave
  • He might’ve tried bribing the teacher but she still refused
  • Leaving the classroom after giving Genesis lots of hugs and forehead kisses
  • Watching her talk to the kids around her makes him grin
  • leT’S JUST TALK ABOUT HOW FRUSTRATED TOM GETS WITH GENESIS’ HOMEWORK
  • So he thought when she asked him for help it would be a piece of cake
  • “What is this shit??”
  • “Daddy, language.”
    • “Sorry, what is this crap?”
    • “DaD THAT’S STILL NOT POLITE”
  • She definitely got his attitude
  • Long after Genesis figured out the simple word problems and gone to bed, he’s still trying to make sense of the kindergarten common core logic
  • Ringing Harrison for his opinion
  • “WHAT KIND OF BULLSHIT ARE THEY TRYING TO TEACH MY DAUGHTER??”

  • When he learned Genesis liked one of the little boys in the group, oH GOD HIS POOR DAUGHTER
  • “Hey, Gen, is thIS THE BOY??” while pointing at the little boy who was very scared
  • “Oh mY GOD, DAD.”
  • Although Tom was arguably one of the smartest businessmen in history, it was unknown whY he wore a white button up and black slacks to the ZOO
  • He really regretted this when they went into the petting zoo
  • A goat chewed a hole through the bottom of his trousers and an other slobbered all over his shirt
  • Tom rarely went on dates after having Genesis, he couldn’t bring himself to make time for another girl in his life since she was basically the star of it now
  • One night, he went on a date with a girl from Italy, who Genesis wasn’t very fond of
  • He left her with the babysitter and promised to come say goodnight again when he got home
  • Being the smart little girl she is, she dialled Tom’s number on her emergency phone while the Nanny was in the kitchen and told him she broke her ankle while practicing ballet

  • You were Genesis’ 5th grade teacher
  • She always came home raving about how cool her teacher was is and how nice and you always drew cute pictures on her papers that received perfect scores
  • Parent-Teacher conferences came around and of course he showed up, expecting an older woman from all of Genesis’ descriptions
  • Boy was he wrong
  • You were his age, or maybe a year or two younger
  • He didn’t expect you to be that pretty
  • He tries to be charming but that doesn’t go as planned
  • “So, uh.. What do you do?”
  • “I’m.. a.. Teacher.”
  • Going on and on about how Genesis is easily one of your favorite students
  • Tom going home that night thinking of excuses to see you again
  • So the next day he offers to drive Genesis to school instead of her riding the bus
  • “But Daddddd it’s not cool anymore-”
  • “Get in the car.”
  • Even walking her to her class despite all of her little protests

My Favorite Anime

Many of us have watched a lot of anime through the years, but there will always be that one list of anime in the back of your mind that become timeless and close to your heart. No matter how many years have passed they still remain the best of the best,  because let’s be honest, anime is not what it use to be.

This will include series/movies/OVAs. there are also many series in this list that i couldn’t decide which i love the most, so there isn’t a particular order.

Ghost in the shell

I really like the Ghost in the Shell franchise, but the 1995 animated movie was my favorite. the execution of the animation and the story/plot was definitely something special, and no matter how many years have passed it still remains one of the best. The fact that the Matrix was inspired by the GITS 1995 movie supports my point.

The music for stand alone complex by Yoko kanno was awesome.

Rurouni Kenshin - Trust and Betreyal  OVA mini series. (the franchise better known as Samurai X)

You guys have no idea how much i love this OVA, because not only am i a sucker for symbolism and everything that has to do with Feudal Japan,  but because this mini series did a wonderful job at conveying  so much wisdom and depth. It has something poetic about it. to me it’s a masterpiece. 

i have the DVD somewhere around my house, but, i can’t find it and i’m freaking out about it,  cuz from what i’ve heard you can’t find that original version anywhere anymore since it was discontinued , so basically it’s a rare relic.  3 :’D
