i really hope the timing works out for you lot

Have to work a bunch this weekend so i wont be around a whole lot and i think im going to take sunday off from electronics. I still really just need some time to myself to cry and really comes to terms with this whole break up situation and figure out what im going to do about my tuition. I hope you all understand

For a lot of you I imagine it’s going to be either going back to see your family, Christmas is really nice, it’s your favourite time of the year, time off work, time off school, presents and it’s all good. But for lots of people out there, you know, they might have family problems or personal health issues. Christmas isn’t the perfect thing that everybody wants it to be, so I hope for all the people out there that maybe aren't having the perfect break from doing whatever they want that Gamingmas is a nice little happy thing in their life. ‘Cause I presume that no matter your circumstances if you’re here watching the live show, you probably watch YouTube, so I hope that all of you, no matter how your Christmas period have been going, you’ve just enjoyed watching the fun silly videos on DanAndPhilGAMES.

Quotes from Dan (19/?)

The true motivation behind deciding to do 24 videos of Gamingmas, I’m sure. Christmas time is complex. I hope everyone who struggles with this time gets through it okay.

My Mother Looks at Overwatch p.2

Wow, people really liked my first post! I hope I can keep you all entertained with this little series. :) I had a bit of time to sit down after work and I put together more, and I learned it’s probably easier to do when I just keep a template and slot in the content rather than making a whole new image every time XD so hopefully I can make more faster now! I want to put out a lot of characters in each update, because my goal isn’t to farm for Reddit karma with tons of updates over time. I want to share with you what I heard from an outsider to the gaming community in regards to something that we all enjoy. :) So look for more characters at once over the next couple of days.

Just to remind you all what this is; I showed my mother all the characters from Overwatch and talked with her about them while recording her first impressions. I asked her to give each character a codename she thought fit their appearance as well as some thoughts on what she thought their job was and who they are as characters. (She speaks in blue, I speak in green)

Here we go!








Thank you for all your support and kind comments. :) My mom is following along and very much appreciates them, and she is glad that she could make you all happy!

Hello, I was wondering if you had any resources on surfing, the type of moves, the waves, the erm technical speak and erm anything about the competitions how they work etc. If you do, thank you so much!

Of course! I’m so sorry this is coming in so late, but I hope you see this and that this helps you some! 

Firstly, congrats for taking the time to really research this and to treat surfing like a real sport rather than just throwing a blonde guy with a hang loose symbol into your book. You’re already well on your way to a well-thought-out story and character. Surfing is complicated and lots of different types of people participate in it. While I’m a Californian and everyone thinks this is what I do all day, I can’t say I know much about it myself, but here are the resources I found that I think will help. 

First off, the terminology:

  • The Glossary of Surfings Terms (this site in general is also great, so I reccomend checking it out beyond this page. There’s all sorts of information here about surfing, waves, etc. and can link you to surfing movies, books, and more!
  • Surfology Glossary (this one is a bit more scientific, so you really sound like you understand how surfing actually works) 
  • Glossary of Surf Terms

Now all about Waves:

7 Weeks

Two pink lines. What the fuck. No, this couldn’t be happening.

I shook the stick a few good times, knowing the box says you’re really not supposed to but I thought that maybe if I did it hard enough, maybe...just maybe, it would fix the error. Because this was clearly an error. This was clearly a manufacturing error. It was the test, it had to be. The test was defective, the test was clearly defective. Because there was no way this could be right, there was absolutely no way that this test could actually be positive, there was no way I could actually be…pregnant…

Oh God.

The air cinched from my lungs as I plopped down on the toilet seat of my bathroom, the test barely dangling between my loose fingertips over my bent kneecap. Shit. I flicked my head back and forth, shutting my eyes as the heat began to travel from the warped pit of my stomach up to my cheeks, filling them with a sickening flush. Shit, shit, shit. How could this have happened? How could I have let this happen?

My shaken thoughts quickly juggled between ‘what the fuck am I gonna do’ and ‘holy shit….I gotta tell him’. Him. Him being a guy that would probably want nothing to do with this, a guy that had a whole entire world of speculation and scrutiny to deal with considering he was…famous. Him being a guy that I didn’t even really know, a guy that I hadn’t even spoken to since the night he…well, apparently impregnated me. The mere thought of having to speak to him, to tell him this news when we literally didn’t know a lick about each other, made the nerves start to creep up my spine.

I popped my eyes open and tentatively peered down at the little stick of death that was in my hand. Maybe I don’t have to tell him, I innocently thought with a tiny shrug, the idea being swiftly washed away by my own good conscience.

Letting out a loud groan, my upper body tumbled over as I let my head hang down between my parted knees, my arms dramatically slumping to the floor.  

I had to tell him. I had to tell Niall.

Anyone who hears the score knows it’s the only way to tell history. There’s not another musical genre that would fit in which he [Alexander Hamilton] could be given full expression and frankly hip-hop has been around for forty years! So anyone who is like, “Oh hip-hop’s not music” is living in their own bubble of their own creation…I’m in the tradition of a lot of artists who have been making amazing work for a really long time. So, when you tell me “I hate rap but I love this,” you’re half insulting me. You should know that. And I always tell them all: you’ve been missing out. I hope you listen to more.

The most stressful time of the year

A/N: This is a little Christmas themed Isaac/reader story I thought of and enjoyed writing. I hope you like it and that all of you feel a little Christmas joy. :) 

Plot: You are really stressed about Christmas and need to get all the presents for your family, being on your way to the mall and a horrible shopping trip. In the end you get unexpected help from Isaac Lahey and the day turns out a lot better than expected.

Christmas time: the most stressful time of the year, for sure. Not only do you have a thousand exams to study for and papers to do (at least it feels like it), you are also working at the local coffee shop to earn money for Christmas presents that you still have to purchase. Today is the only Saturday you don’t have to work, which means that you definitely have to go to the mall, otherwise you’d be totally blank on Christmas Eve.

The problem is: You don’t really know what to get everybody and you tried to write a list that still has nothing on it except for the names of your friends and relatives, so you decided to simply improvise. You throw away the list with a sigh, grab your purse and hurry downstairs to get the keys for your car. In that exact moment, the doorbell rings.

You stop with a frown, your hand hovering over the keys while you wonder who on earth that could be. You have no idea, so you just turn around and open the door, only to be even more surprised as you find a breathtakingly handsome Isaac with snowflakes in his hair standing on your porch. You freeze, eyes widened and heart beating fast, as a small smile appears on his lips, making matters even worse.

“Hey Y/N!”, he greets you. Then he finally realizes the state you are in and his face falls. “Oh, are you up to something?”

“Ehm…yeah, kind of”, you stutter. “Sorry, Isaac, but…what exactly are you doing here?”

“I’m here to study. With you”, he answers as if it’s the most obvious thing in the world. You can already see the disappointment in his eyes. “Buuuut I guess you forgot about that.”

You have. That’s the sad truth and it must mean that you’re really awfully busy because you never thought you could ever forget about a meeting with Isaac Lahey. Now that he mentioned it, you remember something about studying for the Chemistry exam together. But you did it on your own yesterday evening. Great. Suddenly you’re filled with regret and guilt.

“I’m so sorry, Isaac! I did. I mean, I was working and writing those papers and I really have to go to the mall today or my family will hate me and ban me. Well, they probably wouldn’t but there’s a possibility”, you ramble, resisting the urge to run your fingers through his wonderful curls and free them from the snowflakes that are slowly melting now.

He just stands there, hands in his pockets, teetering on his feet and thinking for a moment. Then he finally shrugs with a smile, releasing your tension.

“Alright, then to the mall it is”, he states.

“Wha…what do you mean?”

“Well…that we could go there together, saving you from your family’s wrath. Unless you don’t want me to come.”

“No!”, you hurry, because there is nothing you want more than spending a whole day with Isaac Lahey. “No, I just never took you for a mall kinda guy.”

“I’m not. But I guess you’re neither so this ought to be fun”, he claims with a smirk.

You consider it for a moment until you realize that there is nothing to consider because there is only one possible answer. Therefore you give him your biggest smile, pick up your keys and say: “Alright, but I’ll drive.”


As you dreaded, the mall is filled to its last corner. There are definitely too many people around, especially for you. Isaac doesn’t seem all too relaxed either and somehow this sign of likeness comforts you a little.

“Sooo…where do we start?”, Isaac asks, protectively putting his hand on your shoulder which you don’t mind at all. As well as the light trace of nervousness in his voice as he does so. “Do you have a list?”

You clear your throat awkwardly: “Well, see…that’s the thing…”

He turns around and stares at you shocked. “You have no list?”

“Nope. Like I told you: this is not gonna be fun.”

“Right…I guess that means that we just have to look into the shops and find something. Let’s enter the battle.”

With that he pulls you into the crowd to an unknown destination, never letting go of you.


In the end it’s a lot more fun than you ever expected. Isaac’s stiffness disappears pretty quickly, at the latest as you enter the scarf section and he tries to persuade you to buy one for your dad. You laugh at him hysterically as you make him try on some hats, totally losing it at one that looks like a cow’s head. Afterwards he suggests a bunch of horrifying purses, making you doubt his sanity until he helps you to pick out a good perfume by using his sensitive nose, coming far too close to you while smelling it, making you all flustered. As you both get hungry after three hours, you decide to sit down and get some pizza.

In that moment, as you are sitting in front of him at the table, watching him secretly, you realize that all of this pretty much feels like a date. You don’t mind at all. Something you dreaded turned out to be the best day since a very long time.

“So, what’s next?”, Isaac asks, waving with a slice of pizza. “We haven’t visited the electronic section yet.”

“We don’t have to”, you answer, fetching the food out of his hand and taking a bite yourself. “I have everything I need.”

“Seriously?”, he prompts, raising his eyebrows in surprise. “No aunts or nieces left?”

“Nope. You officially are a free man.”

“Great. That means we can drive to yours and study after all. Unless you want to get rid of me, which I’d totally understand.”

He says that but his huge blue puppy gaze tells a whole other story. You could never resist them and expanding this date seems like a great idea anyway.

“I’d never. Come on.”


As you enter your house with him you are feeling the Christmas joy for the very first time this year. You appreciate the colourful lights, the cookie smell, all of the typical Christmas stuff your Mum prepared. And it’s even better with Isaac at your side.

“You know what? Why don’t you go upstairs and prepare the books while I make us some tea and get the cookies?”

“Works for me”, Isaac responds with a sweet smile before he disappears upstairs. And you’re not proud of it but you actually catch a glimpse on his butt and you don’t regret it.

You hurry to make the tea and put some of the cookies on a plate. Your heart is beating a little faster than usual as you walk up the stairs and open the door only to find him sprawled on your bed, looking like he absolutely belongs there.

“Hey, I don’t see any books!”, you exclaim, balancing the tray onto the matrass with his help.

He just smirks at you. “No. You know, I thought: it’s Christmas, right? That means that sometimes you should just lie down and watch a movie, relax and enjoy the warmth and silence.”

“You wanna stay and watch a movie with me?”, you ask him in pleased disbelief.

“Absolutely. We could watch your favourite Christmas movie if there is one!”

“Aright. That would be the first Santa Claus movie. I’ll put it into the player.”

You do so and afterwards snuggle into your bed. It doesn’t take long until he puts his arm around you and pulls you to his side, allowing you to bed your head on his chest. You can smell his scent and feels his calm breathing. You feel intense affection and also how your body finally relaxes after so many stressful days.

I don’t think you guys understand how much I love zaveid. (I really hope we get some backstory animation about him, Edna, and Eizen in Zestiria the X)


THOUGHTS: I sat down and thought about it and you have to wonder why Zaveid didn’t kill Eizen for like—hundreds?? of years when he probably had a lot of chances to.  I mean there’s the part where he wasn’t sure if Siegfried would even work against him but Edna mentions that she sees Zaveid on Spiritcrest sometimes but doesn’t know why.  Presumably to kill Eizen but I mean he never does so—I feel like he chickens out each time.  I REALLY WANT THE SCENE OF THEM KILLING EIZEN IN THE ANIME AND I NEED EDNA AND ZAVEID CRYING.

A selection of twitter sketches I’ve done that I haven’t uploaded here

Find my twitter for more Shadoo here

So contrary to popular belief I’m not completely dead I’m just not as productive and University is pretty much eating up a lot of my time. A lot of these sketches are really old but I’ve decided to share them with you! There are a lot of project I want to roll out and I want to improve my merch and provide more of it. I have a ton of ideas and am willing to do other ships too! Just time and low self-esteem is stopping me. I’m working on things and I hope you all still stay with me for the journey! Thank you so much for your support and patience!

Author’s Note: So my week hasn’t started out that great even for a Monday but I was able to finish this one-shot. I’m not sure how good it is so feed back would be really nice and as always requests are open. I will try to link the prompts list in, I’ve never done anything like it so it may not happen or work. I hope you enjoy this, I had a lot of fun writing it ad I feel over time my writing will develop with your guys’ help.

Hey! Just wanted to drop by and ask how YOUR fic was going? I know a lot of people are still wanting to find lost fics and stuff and you work so hard to find them but remember to take a break and work on your own, okay? And eat properly. And sleep (because by god how do you have time for this???) Have a good day!

This is really sweet, thank you for looking out for me! 

I’m hoping to get the first chapter of my fic out sometime this week, hopefully. (If you want to get some sneak peeks of my fic check out my sideblog @victuurificthings…)

It’s hard to balance writing my fic and running this blog, but I’m working as hard as I can! I’m working on the chapter today so stay tuned!

Hey guys it’s been a while, gotta huge amount of work done this month, hopefully some of which I will be able to share with you over the coming year. For now I wanted to show you guys the new cover I’ve been working on for  Four Barbarian Generals by T.A Miles, which just got revealed for pre-order.  (If you haven’t checked out the series so far I totally recommend doing so! It’s an epic fantasy with well-researched pan-asian themes & aesthetic which is pretty rare.) This one went through a lot of changes and has a much less ‘natural’ colour palette than the rest of the series, I really enjoyed working on this though- especially on the small details like the tiger embroidery etc. So much fun!

I hope to be doing some personal work to show you later this month as I intend to take some time off before industry workshops to work on my concept art portfolio.

Here’s a preview of my piece for the @winterininkopoliszine! Featuring… you know who! (To be honest, I didn’t plan on using my Splatoon characters for this, but when you see the entire piece, you’ll know why I did!) 

This is one of the most ambitious pieces I’ve worked on in a really long time, and I tried out a bunch of new things. It was a challenge, but definitely a lot of fun to do! I hope you guys will look forward to it and all the great pieces that will be in the zine!

Thanks for the opportunity to make a piece for charity, and for allowing me to be alongside a panel of amazing artists!

Hey! I recently had the honor of doing the art assets for Marvel’s web series, Marvel TL;DR. It was a great experience and a lot of fun to do, especially because I love this incarnation of Ghost Rider.

Hahahaha can I request Fitzsimmons + 83 please? :)

For some reason this prompt list has me spending a lot of time thinking about fs having a baby so I hope you’re okay with the direction I took this.

And thank you for being patient with me :)

83:  Bring your pretty little butt over here.

Baby fic 1   Baby fic 2

Jemma purses her lips slightly before puckering them into the mirror. She leans back to inspect the outcome of all her work. 

“Perfect,” she whispers as her eyes roam over the curls that now frame her face before flitting over her makeup.

It’s their first time really going out since Daniel was born, fancy parties are not common in the spy life unless one is attending them undercover. Somehow she thinks it’s more fun to get dressed up for a party when she’s actually an invited guest.

“Jemma,” she hears Fitz call from outside the bathroom, “come see your handsome men all dressed up.” An hour ago, she had jumped up when she heard signs of Daniel waking up but Fitz had forced her into their bedroom to get ready instead. As much as she had relished that time alone, she is worried about just what she is going to find when she opens that door.

Jemma gets up from her vanity and crosses the small bathroom, pauses a second and then opens the door- and she laughs.

Fitz is standing at the end of their bed- dressed in her favorite suit with the tie that matches his eyes- and in his arms, Daniel looks like a miniature version of his father with a shirt to match Fitz’s tie and a tiny black waistcoat.

“Hey! What’s so funny?” Fitz asks, bouncing slightly as Daniel gets a little fussy.

“Nothing, love,” Jemma says quietly, leaning against the door frame. “I’m just surprised, that’s all.”

“What? Didn’t think I could dress my own son without mucking it up?”

“I never said that,” Jemma says, holding her hand up to cover her growing smirk.

“Mhmm. You didn’t have to,” Fitz grumbles even as his smile gives him away.

“I’m sorry,” Jemma sighs. “Now bring your pretty little butt over here so I can kiss you.”

“Are you talking to me or Daniel?” Fitz asks, making faces at his son.

“Well…” Jemma shrugs.

“Alright, alright,” Fitz sighs. “Let’s see if our little guy can make it on his own,” he coos, bouncing Daniel in the air before setting him carefully on his own feet and pointing him toward Jemma. “Can you walk to Mama, Daniel? Walk to Mama,” Fitz whispers, keeping his hands steady until Daniel moves to wobble across the small distance between them.

“Come on, sweetheart,” Jemma cheers quietly as she bends down to open her arms to her son. “Look at our little walker go!” she pretends to yell as he topples into her arms before she peppers his small cheeks with light kisses. “He’s growing so fast,” she laments, meeting Fitz’s eyes as they both rise to their feet.

“He looks more like you every day,” Fitz smiles, coming to stand next to Jemma so that he can put his arm around her.

“Well scientifically speaking-” Jemma starts before Fitz cuts her off with a kiss of his own. “Well, excuse me,” she huffs after he pulls away.

“I believe I was asked for a kiss,” he explains. “Besides, you’ve explained that bit of science before, remember?” he chides as he turns to the bed to retrieve their coats.

“Oh, we’d better get going,” Jemma says, ignoring his question. “If we don’t leave now, we’ll be late for the party.”

“Can’t have that can we?” Fitz asks, his attention returning to Daniel. “We wouldn’t want to mess up Mummy’s reputation for promptness, now would we?”

“Oh, Fitz,” Jemma sighs. “Now can we please go?”

“Just one more thing,” Fitz says, pulling Daniel back into his arms.

“And what’s that?”

“You look absolutely, beautiful, Jem. I just had to make sure I told you that before we left.” Jemma blushes at his words and she smiles as Daniel babbles something in her direction. “I believe that was him agreeing with me,” Fitz laughs.

“I think he was actually commending you for how you dressed him,” Jemma replies.

“So does that mean you’ll let me dress him more often?” Fitz jokes, taking her arm in his own and leading her out into the hallway.

“Don’t count on it,” Jemma says before catching Daniel’s eyes and winking.

send me a ship and a number and I’ll write you a drabble

(i’ll work on them until i have no more to answer)

AHHHHH, GUYS! The other day I followed Sombra’s ARG ‘till my eyes almost fell out my face but since she wasn’t released I decided to do something to celebrate her future release, hopefully tomorrow at Blizzcon.

I friggin LOVE Sombra’s design, I think I will draw her a lot in the future and I can’t wait for her to be released!

I rushed this picture a lot, worked on it non-stop today because I wanted to finish it in time for Blizzcon.

Wether Sombra will make her appearance or not, I hope you will like this picture cuz I really put all myself into it haha

Btw, I have not forgotten about the prizes for reaching 1000 followers and I have already started working on them but I wanted to finish this picture first because the deadline was imminent. I hope you won’t be angry, just wait a little bit more!

One year ago my book “You’re Never Weird on the Internet” was released! Ty to all who read!

Special thanks to everyone who came out to meet me on book tour, those interactions have really made me change a lot of what I’m doing in my life now, working on less but on things that mean more to me, devoting time to my personal life and growing as a creative person. You impacted me as much as I hope my book impacted you <3

Happy Valentine’s Day!! (◕‿◕✿)

This is my present for you all! This a comic of the Figure Skating AU, it’s 26 pages-long but due to the fact that some days ago I lost all the work I was doing, I managed to complete only the first part (11 pages). The second part will come out in 4 days, tho, on Miyusawa day 2/18 (*≧▽≦)

It was inspired by and a continuation of the ask lovely @starrwinter sent me some time ago! 

Miyuki and Sawamura went to Alberta for the ISU Grand Prix of the Figure Skating. They’re sharing a hotel room. 

First part is Sawamura-centered. Second part will be Miyuki-centered

I hope you enjoy this!
