new favorite trope: anime girls hiding bandaged hands after working tirelessly on something for someone they cared about

anonymous asked:

I saw you said you were gonna do a tutorial series type thing about your taako cosplay, and i really wanted to know how you made the handle of your umbrella look like wood, if that isnt too much to ask! your taako is one of my favorite cosplays ive seen of him tbh

FIrst of all I’m so sorry it has taken me forever to respond to this!! Life was a little crazy there for a hot second. But now i’m home and back in the saddle so lets do this. Also, thank you so much !!! I’m so honored you like my cosplay ahh

Okay so my base umbrella i’m about 90% sure was this one , which i just found in my closet but I loved the size of it. I am also very small so an umbrella that was a little bit taller works really well proportion wise. LIke it almost could actually be a staff. Here is what the umbrella handle started out looking like: 

I started by removing the rubber grip thing and I was basically just left with the metal pole that makes up the center of the umbrella. I built a base shape with tinfoil so I could build onto it: 

Then for the fun part!! I used this new stuff called “Sculptamold” that I found in my local craft store. It was just the last bag sitting at the back of a shelf, i had never heard of this stuff before. Basically it’s like a plaster/paper powder that you mix with water, and the consistency depends on how much water you add. If you add a lot, you can use it like plaster to cast things in a mold. But if you don’t add a lot of water, it ends up with a very sculptable consistency like clay! 

Now unfortunately i’m incompetant and totally did not take any WIP pics of this stuff being put to use but basically: it takes a wHILe to dry, like at least overnight if not a couple days, and it dries really really rough. I basically just took clumps of it and covered my tinfoil base, waited an hour or two until the consistency was a little more set, and then went through with my fingers and a little water to smooth out big bumps. It WILL dry very rough regardless tho, but the beauty is–this stuff sands like a DREAm. Just with some regular sandpaper and like twenty minutes I was able to get it very very smooth, and for any particularly rough patches I just hit it with my dremel. 

So I had a smooth hook on the end of my umbrella, but i wanted to add a wood texture. Origianlly I tried dremeling it in, but that didn’t work so well because it did crumble a bit. So of course i turned to an obvious solution–hot glue! Seriously. I just started dripping hot glue all over this thing in a wood-grain texture. I took pencil and sort of patterend out the general idea of where my wood grain would go and followed that. A tip: don’t use hot glue that is super incredibly bubbly hot; if its a little cooler then it will hold its shape better as it lays down and it wont run into itself. 

Heres a quickl little example i did on some scrap paper::

Then you paint! I did a base coat in brown, then went in and added shadows and highlights in other colors

This was super fast and I only did one layer of shadow/highlights. For my actual handle i did probably five or six layers, just adding brush strokes and lines to give it more dimension! 

Also: Make sure you use MATTE paint!! Gloss or even satin will make it look shiny and not like wood! 

Yeah basically that is it!! It isn’t the *most* realistic wood texture, but I kind of like the stylized cartoony vibe that it gave! 

anyway, i hope this helps! Thank you so much !

Day 0

You grunted, standing on the tips of your babydoll shoes, trying your hardest to get the red spine book. Your pastel pink finger nails barely getting the item, only to gasp, as a large tan hand suddenly reached out plucking the book off for you. Turning as you had to step back to look at the giant man beside you, your book currently in his hand.

“This the one you’re after?”

He was so tall, easily dwarfing you, you hardly came to his shoulder, your small hand reaching to grab the book, as you noticed the large fingers took over much of the book.  “Thank you.”

A huge smile played over his face, “So what is that?”

Your eyes lit up, as you beamed, explaining the book excitedly without trying to give away the plot, the tall man following after you as you went to the counter to pay conversating. His arms full of books himself, the two of you paying, still in conversation about your favorite books.

“Too bad that’s the last copy, it sounds interesting.” He chuckled, holding the door open for you, as you exited the bookshop.

You turned to the large man, your eyes fluttering as you reached into your reusable shopping basket, pulling out the red book. “Please barrow it, I’ve read it hundreds of times.”

“Are you sure?”

“Mmhm, just so long as you tell me your name.” You giggled, tucking your hair behind your ear.

“Gladiolus, and you?”

You smiled giving your name, a name like Gladiolus seemed to fit him perfectly,

rough sketch of THE SCENE

Requested #7 -Yoongi

Thank you so much anon!! Girl, I am about to either ruin lives with feels/angst or get completely ripped to shreds by pro smut writers.

If the numbers on my blog seem out or order, its because the titles are in the order of which they were requested, I’ll try to be more organized, but anyways, here you are.

And whoever unfollowed me, 👊💥👼. I’m kidding of course!
Prompt list here- https://nightowlfandom.tumblr.com/post/168813061026/bts-writing-prompts-taking-requests

7- “No, you cannot stay here! I don’t care that it’s raining!!!”
17-“We’re only sharing a bed, it isn’t the end of the word”
24- “I aim to please.
41-"Just this once, don’t worry about what will happen, just focus on us, right here.”

I might do a part 2! With actually well written smut lol, tell need what you think.

You weren’t planning on staying up tonight, but shit happens.
You were busy eating cereal at 10PM because you had no social life outside talking about your favorite things on the internet.
It was raining quite vigorously outside, it was kind of calming to hear the patter against your windows. The weather report said a storm was rolling in. Not dangerous, but a lot of rain and thunder.

You suddenly heard a knock on your door. No one should really need anything at this time of night.
You trudged over the door, unaware of your attire.

You yanked open the door, coming face to face with Yoongi, who was currently shaking in his soaking wet clothes. What the fu-

“What are you doing here?” You stifled a yawn. “Don’t tell me I’m needed over there.” you withheld a bothered groan. “Haven’t you ever heard of an umbrella.”

“No, I really didn’t want to take a taxi or ride the train.” he replied. “Weatherman said to stay indoors or get somewhere as quick as possible.” he mumbled. “Soo-”

“…Your point?” you raised an eyebrow. Wait a minute…“No! No no no!”

“Come on, just for tonight!” he groaned. “I’ll leave as soon as the rain stops!”

“No you cannot stay here! I don’t care that it’s raining!!” you frantically shook your head.

“Y/N.” Yoongi and you had a stare down. There was no way in HELL THAT YOU WERE GOING TO-
….

“Here.” you grumbled, throwing a clean towel at him. “Bathroom is down the hall.” You yelled, walking back into the kitchen to clean up. You weren’t sure why he asked where it was in the first place. In the amount of time he’s known you, this place should be etched in his mind…then again you never let anyone into your humble abode. Great, just great.

You wandered into your room, walking over to the couch on the other side of your room. Yoongi walked out, yanking off his wet shirt.

“What are you doing?” he asked.

“You can sleep on the bed.” you simply said, arranging the pillows.

“ It’s your house, what’s wrong with sharing?” he raised an eyebrow.

“Don’t ask me!” You said awkwardly. “You’re only wearing pants!…” you motioned to his bare torso. “Plus it’s good manners.”

“You’re wearing pajamas” he motioned to your black tank top and gray shorts with orange stars.

“Your point being?” you crossed your arms. “It’s weird, okay?!”

“We’re only sharing a bed, it isn’t the end of the world…and I’m definitely not sleeping on the couch.” he laughed, hopping into bed. “Do what you want.”

Groaning, you crossed your arms as he made himself comfy…on YOUR bed. Curse him.

“Just keep your hands to yourself.” you mumbled, crawling onto the opposite side, as far from him as possible. You both turned your backs from eachother.

“Sure sure.” he hid a laugh as you went to turn off the light. “Whatever you say.”

You sighed, not even making an effort to hide your very evident annoyance. You laid in the darkness, sleep refusing to find you. Maybe it was insomnia creeping up your back, or maybe it was the warm body next to you.

You shivered a bit, that ass had the majority of the blankets. You didn’t want to make an effort to pull over to get some. You felt Yoongi stir next to you. You instantly shut your eyes and pretended to be asleep. Despite the hard patter of the rain against your window pane.

You pretended to stir, moving a little, but still facing away.

“Yeah, no I’m not stuck at the studio.” Yoongi began speaking. He must’ve been on the phone. “I’m at Y/N’s. No, it’s not like that…Why do you care how I feel about her?” he spoke with assertiveness. “I’m just staying over because of the storm…No-. Oh please, better me be here than you. You’d probably scare her to death.”

You turned your head and saw him still facing away, his phone to his ear. You turned your head back.

You heard a slight beep, signaling he hung up.

“Did I wake you?” he whispered.

“Yeah.” you simply answered, faking a yawn. “Were you on the phone?” you pretended to just wake up.

“Yeah, the boys are on my nerves.” he mumbled, turning around to face you.

“What about?” you asked, hiding a yawn.

“Deadlines. Why I’m not back at the dorms, bothering you.” he rolled his eyes. “The train station was packed, I didn’t want to drive.”

“And my apartment just so happens to be right close to the building. So you figured…” you trailed off.

“I knew you wouldn’t leave me out there.” he hid a smile. “That’s just the type of person you are.”

“Yeah.” you mumbled, getting uneasy.

“You’ve always been like that.” he continued. “Even when-”

“Yoongi…don’t.” you shook your head, knowing where he was going with this. “You don’t have to-”

“Why did things end the way they did?” he suddenly asked, although he knew damn well.

“Just go to sleep.” You mumbled quickly, standing up off the bed.

“Y/N-” he called behind you. You walked to your kitchen, suddenly craving more cereal.

You should have known someone like Yoongi would carry a baggage. It was hell enough working with him.

“Why do you keep running away everytime I bring something like this up?” he stormed in. As soon as he spoke, the lights cut out as a result of a crash of thunder.

Just. Fucking. Wonderful.

“Yoongi. The reason it didn’t work between us is because you’re somebody, I’m nobody. You’re a rapper, I file papers. There was no way-”

“Because you didn’t give us enough time for there to BE a way. You were worried about everything and everyone!” he raised his voice slightly. You grabbed a flashlight from one of your cabinets and flicked it on.

“I was thinking about you and hardships.” You excused his comment.

“Bullshit, Y/N…what we had was really something important. I know you still feel something. You’re scared because it was me who fucked up.” he sighed.

“I don’t think I’d call putting makeup on your face, 4 walks in the park, 3 "Netflix and Chill” sessions and 2 dates a relationship.“ you mumbled.

”…The boys wouldn’t talk to me four two days…when they found out that we…“

"Called it quits due to your lack of-” you began. No, even if you were hurt in the past. Yoongi still had a heart. He was nice and caring. That fake bad boy attitude was always blinded by that silly smile. “Will we ever learn…or do we really have to have people teach us.” you laughed harshly.

“Maybe that’s the problem. We were listening to others, but never to ourselves, or to each other.”. Even in the dark, despite the flashlight that had decided to die, you could make out his serious face. You both stood for a while, basking in the rain.

“So what do we do.” you asked, knowing where this was headed.

“Just this once,” he began talking a step towards you. “Don’t worry about what will happen. Just focus on us…right here.” he whispered. “Maybe we’ll get it right this time.”

“Maybe…” you whispered.

“…Guess your not scared of the dark anymore.” you could see the faint smile on his face. You noticed it too, you weren’t freaking out or waving a pan around.

“Remember what you said. ‘When you’re here, there’s no such thing as darkness’” you quoted that very stupid cheesy line that he learned from a stupid movie you both watched before. Quickly he walked up to you.

His arms slipped around your frame, yanking you closer. You weren’t sure if you were prepared…for this again.

Yoongi kissed you, his lips burning. The unfamiliar sensation of what used to be came raining back down on you.

Wrapping your arms around his neck, you slightly leaned on him for support. Floods of late nights and “other” things suddenly came back.

His hand trailed down your side, down your leg and hiked up your shorts. His hand was very cold. Being the cocky bastard he was, he squeezed your ass, causing you to gasp.
Yoongi used his opportunity to slip his tongue through the gap created.

You both stood in the darkness of the kitchen, hands on bodies, slowly grinding together, stroking tongues.

Your back hit the wall gently, yet Yoongi still never let you out of his grasp.

“Don’t make me regret this.” You whispered, trying to catch what little breath you had left. “Now take me back to my room.” you pouted. “It’s really beginning to scare me now.”

“Well, I am to please.” he replied playfully, his arms hooked around your legs, hoisting you up.

You wrapped your legs around his torso as he walked through your stairless apartment. “But don’t expect us to do much sleeping.” he laughed after a while.

(So what do you think? Part 2?)

i suppose this fits under the umbrella of compulsory heterosexuality but i really want this whole “character liked this person so they might be bi but can’t possibly be gay” myth like, permanently dispelled, forever, because this is just….literally not true.

there are gay people who have dated, loved, married, had sex with, fallen in love with, people who were a different gender than them. not all sexuality is fluid and it’s inappropriate to assume that someone’s sexuality is/will be fluid, but characters are non-sentient creations that do not have their own agency—and there is absolutely no reason that a character having legitimate feelings for someone of a different gender absolutely and totally rules out all possibility of them being gay.

sexuality is a largely personal, highly individualized experience. people change, people grow up. hardly anyone chooses a label for themselves based on what they used to be like. crushing on someone when you’re 5, 10, 15, even 20, doesn’t mean you’ve got to base your life and identity around this attraction. being attracted to specific people, or people “in theory” but without any modern, practical influence on your life shouldn’t dictate who is allowed to choose a label for themselves. straight people actually have no problem using this concept in reverse—you can be straight and have “girl/guy” crushes, you can be straight and make lists of people you would “go gay” for, you can be a “lesbian until graduation,” you can be straight and dabble around “experimenting” with gay hookups and even relationships. some of these experiences are actually people who are not straight battling internalized homophobia and compulsory heterosexuality, certainly, but the concept that your actions and past experiences don’t determine who you are still does apply to gay people.

it’s fundamentally homophobic to say it does, or should, in fact. it assumes straightness as a default, so straight people can “experiment” however they like, provided they return to “straight” at the end of the day. compulsory heterosexuality ensures that gay people will be expected to conform to the model image of straightness, and so much more gay people will have “experimented,” if you will, with being straight—and some people may even have had genuinely positive, emotional experiences in straight relationships. this does not mean they are any less gay, nor does it mean that they will always be able to find fulfillment in straight relationships, nor does it mean that they are bound to these instances of attraction for the rest of their lives, even when they no longer feel that way.

tl;dr: part of compulsory heterosexuality is forcing gay people to define themselves by few and far between positive experiences in straight relationships, and this is an inaccurate and homophobic assessment, and just because someone has experienced some form of genuine heterosexual attraction does not mean it is relevant to their identity or their life long term.

I've been thinking

What if the Reveal doesn’t happen because of some huge dramatic akuma fight or the slow romantic realization. Like I know it doesn’t really fit my whole “I want the umbrella scene music for the reveal” idea and rant but this popped in my head. What if it’s because of anime? Like as Chat Noir, he finds out that Ladybug hasn’t seen like Natuto or One Piece or Dragon Ball Z so he has her watching it on Patrols. And then the subject comes up as Adrien and Marinette talking so they go to watch it together because she says she’s not all the way through it yet (hahahahaha good luck Marinette) and Adrien’s like okay well let’s pick up where you left off and when they do it’s the exact same episode that Ladybug left off at the night before.

TAZ 67 UPDATE ANALYSIS

OKAY. SO LETS TALK THE TAZ UPDATE. 

- first of all i want to say that justin, trav, and clint all did a fucking phenomenal job rping their characters. the way that they were characterized was excellent - you got the sense of the way that the stolen century-selves and the amnesia-selves kind of meshed together. There was….a gravity to a lot of the interactions that was completely absent at the beginning of this campaign, but also sort of overwhelmed the stolen century arc. This episode combined the Classic Mcelroy Goofs with like….really solid character work. (not to mention griffins 5 million distinct character voices, god) 

- particular shoutouts to taako and magnus cause…….

-…OKAY SO LETS TALK ABOUT TAAKO SAYING THAT LUCRETIA TOOK EVERYTHING FROM HIM 

          Cause like fuck! way to give me a feeling, justin you fuck! 

          This says a lot about what Taako believes in, i think. And i think it implies that by taking away lup and his history from him, a fundamental part of his personality and what he believes in and stands for was shorn away. …. hold that thought, gonna make a longer post to discourse that one out, there’s something interesting there. 

- and Magnus!! i was honestly really glad that travis played magnus as putting fischers safety above the safety of the realm. bc magnus is a good dude but also a dude who prioritizes the immediate over the long term, and is sort of an all or nothing guy. he refuses to do a bad thing to do a larger good thing. (furthermore, why does davenport think killing the jellies will release the information? i dont think they know that for sure.) also, the way that magnus was with the voidfish was just….way to give me an emotion, travis.

- Also! I thought it was kind of great how quickly everyone started listening to davenport again, and how even after getting his memories back and realizing all the shit he had gone through and was missing, davenport just immediately took charge and everyone but lucretia listened to him just like that. 

- speaking of. does anyone else think that lucretia is acting….stranger than usual? she doesn’t give any concrete reasoning for why she’s putting up the barrier other than she has to, and we know that relics can put even the IPRE crew under their thrall (ie taako almost grabbing the gaia sash). as @epersonae suggested i think it’s very very likely that lucretia isnt completely in control. 

- also i appreciated how….generally cool barry was in this. like, fuck, i like the dude and his relationship with lup is characterized a lot. he’s doing neato magic and offering to off himself to be a skeleton with lup. what a loser. 10/10 

- lup straight up murdered a dude in the umbrella, my guys. fuckin cold.

- I really desperately want griffin to explain why the voidfish hadn’t released any information beforehand. does it need a “master-level” work to release information? is it not the voidfish’s choice on what to release? like, why didn’t fischer or fischer’s bb release info beforehand? 

- ten bucks says that john….isnt in charge anymore. 

- ten bucks says that taako’s gonna do some funky transmutation shit to the glass circles to get to the other planes. calling it. 

- another ten bucks says that krav made a deal with garfield, the deaaaaaals warlock. 

- THIS IS IT. MY GUYS. I AM SO HYPED. 

anonymous asked:

The ST and It fandom are especially bad for being "heterophobic". Also a lot of people think you're homophobic simply if you don't ship a gay pairing which is so ridiculous

I agree.. I don’t ship byeler, but I think will would be cute gay and I think it should happen.. just not with mike.

Also I really don’t want to be under the umbrella of “asshole straights” like, I know I’m not an asshole so general statements about all straight people are horrible people are totally wrong and offensive.. It makes them kind of hypocritical cause they’re telling “hets” to not discriminate because we’re all horrible people but that in and of itself is discrimination.. discrimination can happen to POC, LGBT, white people, and straight people. It doesn’t only happen to LGBT and POC. POC can discriminate against white people just as LGBT can discriminate against straight people and vice versa..


anonymous asked:

Can you tell me about different types of paganism, or at least a few different kinds because I don't know a whole lot about the subject and I really want to

Paganism is an umbrella term for religions that are polytheistic, or pantheistic, and that are usually more nature-based. Religions that are especially a non-abrahamic, or pre-Christian religion may fit under the term of Pagan. Paganism can also be sweat down into Paleo-paganism, Civilo-paganism, Meso-paganism, Syncreto-paganism, and Neopaganism. Paganism’s definition is not very concrete, and because of this what paganism actually is can be very different from pagan to pagan. Some religions that I believe fit under the term of pagan would be:

  • Wicca
  • Heathenry
  • Hellenism
  • Kemetism

In order to learn more about paganism, and the many forms it takes you will have to do your own research of the different pagan traditions. Thank you for the question, I appreciate it.
