i should have never made this

anonymous asked:

Draco should have had a redemption arc as he got older because he could have made a better redemption arc character than a villain. Would have made for a more interesting character

i’m getting a temporary tattoo of this in case i change my mind but i do see your point

i just don’t care about draco too much, but i can absolutely see why people would want him to get the redemption arc he never actually had in the books (though people do like to act like he did, which,,, no)

Hi, I've been thinking about my behaviors as a person and realized that I may possibly have ADHD but was never diagnosed. I've read up on symptoms and I seem to have a lot of them. 2 years ago when I started to drink coffee daily I've found myself become more functional as a person. I'm also really fidgety, I've been like all 16 years of my life, and I heard this stereotype where people w/ ADHD are creative. I want to be an art major. There's more, but Is it possible that I was never diagnosed?

Sorry I should also add that I don’t get bad grades or generally act like a “bad student”, I do well in school and tend to do that “hyperfocus” thing sometime, especially when I draw or read. In fact a post about hyperfocusing is what made me look into possibly having ADHD in the first place. But somehow, I can get distracted and space out often. Should have added this before but I met the limit, sorry!!

It’s absolutely possible. I was 28 when I was diagnosed; it’s actually really common for those of us who do well academically and are more quiet or reserved in classroom situations.

a lot of people listening to gugudan’s new comeback keep saying they should have debuted with a girl like me in the beginning, but the thing is that i don’t think they could have come back with a song like this successfully for so many reasons.

one being that with mina and sejeong being in ioi at the time of gugudan’s debut, you would have had their performances lacking, and when they make up a large portion of the track this is an issue. also, at debut they wouldnt have made much headway even with a song like a girl like me, never mind getting a 1st win.

i think it was a good choice for jellyfish to give them a safe song at debut so all of gugudan could have performing and entertaining under their belts before they take the leap into finding their identity as a group.

After seeing a PSA going around, I’d figure I’d take the time to make something clear: if you are ever uncomfortable or have discomfort in seeing Malter in suggestive or sexual situations, please let me know. The last thing I want to do is to make potential followers and friends feel this way with a muse of mine.

After notifying me, I can easily tag whatever thread or ask you find uncomfortable with something so you can blacklist it, or drop the thread and see if there’s anyway myself and the other person can continue in a private message. My goal was never to have Malter be just a sex symbol, she’s an interesting character in her own right, but I worry I could easily be treading that thin line between the two.

If I’ve made you uncomfortable in the past, then all I can say is I’m incredibly sorry for my behavior and I should’ve been thinking more with my head. I do truly want to be a great RPer and a great force in this community, and to me that can start by finding problematic behavior and nipping it in the bud. 

Thanks, and hopefully you’ll forgive me!

A lot of the fandom seems to be freaking out about this so let’s talk about it!

This was actually one of my favourite scenes from the episode. Not because of any kind of impending drama but because this conversation has honestly been a long time coming.

After episode 7, there was no relationship talk. Victor and Yuuri have yet to sit down and tell each other straight up what they want out of their relationship (both personally and professionally). Flash back to episode 4 where Victor was asking what he should be to Yuuri. Now they actually are boyfriends (well, even more than that, fiancés) but same as we’ve never heard them state it, I don’t think they’ve really made it explicitly clear to each other either.

I feel that so far they’ve just been letting things evolve as they go. The Cup of China was actually only a bit over a month ago in-series. Their intimate relationship is still very new and it’s been moving really fast. They’re definitely physically intimate (as you can see by the pushed-together beds) but they haven’t quite connected the same way on the emotional level. They definitely love each other and want to stay with each other, I don’t doubt that for a moment, but they haven’t sat down and said “I want to spend my life with you” to each other. They haven’t told each other what their plans are for their professional relationship either.

We know that Victor has been doing a lot of thinking, and it was very obvious in this episode that he is grieving his career, but it’s also obvious that he doesn’t plan to go back to skating competitively.

Yuuri however, being the anxious person that he is, is reading Victor’s grieving all wrong. Yuuri is thinking that not only is their professional relationship (which he could end simply by retiring) but also their personal relationship is holding Victor back from what he “wants” – to go back to being a competitive skater. And thus we get the line that we did here. This is Yuuri’s attempt to “free” Victor to allow him to chase what Yuuri thinks he actually wants, which turns out could not be any further from the truth.

They aren’t going to break up. I can tell you that right now and with absolute certainty. Rather than this being something that is going to create drama, it is actually going to work to solve it. Yuuri needs to hear from Victor that Victor has no intention of leaving and that he wants to stay with Yuuri more than he wants to continue his skating career. Also very important is that Victor needs to say it out loud. Victor is a thinker, he rarely makes big decisions on a whim. He’s been processing what he wants to do with his life for a year now and he has definitely come to his decision (as was evident in episode 10).

Victor has chosen Yuuri over his skating career and this line from episode 11 is just the gateway to the discussion that will firmly cement their personal relationship in place. And the final bow-tie on the gift that is their relationship will be the duet skate at the end of the episode.

I’m honestly looking forward to seeing it.

You should never feel ashamed for any sort of mental illness you may have or the medication you need to take to help you function. “Normal” people rely on the same stuff, yours just happens to be store bought.

Based off this post. I have both depression and anxiety so that quote made me feel a little better about the fact that my brain is wired differently. I hope it might help other people as well.

Get to know me again: one/? female characters ▷ Cristina Yang
“Sometimes the future changes quickly and completely, and we’re left with only the choice of what to do next. We can choose to be afraid of it, to stand there trembling not moving, assuming the worst that can happen or we step forward into the unknown and assume it will be brilliant.”

“I really think I’m really lucky. I’m so grateful for my family, my mom, my stepdad, they all made it possible for me to come here. For my friends, for the fact that I’m living in New York, in my own apartment in the city. I’m also grateful to have people that believe in me the way they do. It’s also a friendly reminder that life is has got to keep going, you should never feel like you’ve arrived. You gotta stay hungry. It’s all over for you the moment you don’t.” – Sebastian Stan.

Art things I wish I knew earlier #6

Remember to slow downnnnn when drawing. 

The result of an art piece is 80% dependent on the first 20% of the time you work on it. I heard this from an really good artist (Clint Cearley).

Sometimes we rush things and don’t know why the result isn’t what we expected. Take every step slowly. Never sacrifice a lot of accuracy for speed. Some accuracy is okay for “happy accidents” but you should be thinking about proportions, form and contours while drawing.

So chill out. Calm down. Hit up some music. Walk away and come back to a piece once in a while. Trust me, you’ll be less frustrated! >.

Oh yea, don’t render + detail too early. I’ve made this mistake so many times… You’re gonna have a bad time

If you want a general/abstract process to fallback to:

Thumbnail -> Rough -> Line -> (Black and White) Values -> Color -> Accents/Highlights

Of course, Value -> Color in some traditional mediums is a bit tough, so I would do a thumbnail of the value in that case.

Day Fifty-Two

-I handed a sticker to a ten month-old who promptly began vibrating uncontrollably while squeaking in delight. I fear I may have been the final catalyst in a process I know not the end of, but I will never know, as the baby was still in the vibration phase as they left the store.

-For the duration of a family’s transaction, I stuck my tongue out to their daughter, who would giggle loudly. This confused her parents, as I pointedly went stone-faced anytime they were facing me. They thought their baby was simply having a grand old time playing with her jacket, yet here I am, having secretly made her day. This is a new brand of vigilante justice and I feel it should be spread.

-An older woman grew upset with me after being told that a shirt being on clearance did not mean that a similarly-colored pair of sweatpants would also be. While I may not see the logic here, I can back her up in the sentiment that everything should cost less at all times.

-I was informed by a man that he had just gotten out of the hospital after a double hernia surgery. There was absolutely no context to this, or any prompting of any sort, and I believe that makes his honesty all the more admirable.

-While making eye contact with me and pointing with one hand, a baby picked her nose and ate what she found in there, repeating the process until she had finished off a fine three course meal. I have a great deal of respect for anyone who begins eating organically this early in life.

-A woman purchased two STD pillows. I do not know what the function of an STD pillow is, but she has my sympathies for needing to purchase two.

-Upon hearing that there was a limit to how many times one guest can use a sale offer, an old man told me that he should steal a boy who was passing by and make him purchase his items. He never specified any plans for releasing the boy back into the wild, so I am left with the conclusion that this Alan Alda lookalike is prepared to commit to the kidnapping and upkeep of a ten year-old for the sake of an extra $5 gift card. This man is by no means a quitter and I am in awe of that.

-I was handed a slightly damp yet cold wad of crumpled bills that smelled of someone trying to cover their smoking habit up with dollar store perfume. Despite having never been there, this handful of ones brings to mind strong memories of Florida for reasons I cannot explain.

-I rang up a man in his sixties whose legal name was Rocky and whose arms were covered in tattoos of scorpions. I can only assume that his parents gave him both the name and the tattoos in a short window of time, as they seemed to go too perfectly hand-in-hand to be unrelated.

-A four year-old walked through my lane in a Five Night’s At Freddy’s shirt. Either she has been bought merchandise for a franchise she knows nothing of, or her parents need to monitor her internet activity much more heavily. 

-While cleaning up the card wall, I found that someone had shoplifted a toy and taken it out of the packaging in the aisle, but hung the cardboard backing back up in the proper place. The few seconds they took to put it back where it belonged display a great deal more politeness than many guests show, and I am grateful they took the few seconds to do so in the middle of their crime spree.

You son of a bitch. I never made one of these when you were still responding because I was so mad at you for leaving. And then when you went quiet, it felt like I should live with that decision, and I have. But today is my birthday. And it’s a special one, because you told me… you once told me that when you come back we might be the same age. And today I’m the same age you were when you left. So it would be a real good time for you to come back.

i’ll pretend not to know how you are doing when my friends ask me about you  
i’ll pretend not to miss you when that’s the only thing i feel
i’ll pretend that i don’t want to see you when everywhere i  go yours is the only face i look for
i’ll pretend i don’t think of you when i am all alone when you are the only thing on my mind
i’ll pretend that the butterflies i feel in my stomach when you text me aren’t butterflies but leeches trying to suck my blood
i’ll pretend i never wrote a word about you when you are the only person i have ever written about  
i’ll pretend i don’t feel anything for you when you are the only person that has ever made me feel  
i’ll pretend that you don’t mean anything to me when you are the centre of my universe, have been for longer than you should be
i’ll pretend that i don’t even like you when i am in love with you
—  i’ll pretend that i have moved on from you like i never ever held onto you // JustScribbledWords
Dear former self, this ones for you. 
I’m sorry, I truly am. I’m sorry for everything, not only for what I let others do to you but what what I did too. I’m sorry for when things went wrong I took it all out on you. I’m sorry for the mutilation of you and for the times I went too far. I’m sorry for holding onto others longer than I ever held onto you. I’m sorry for never putting you first. I’m sorry for letting you and everything that made you, you, erode away. I’m sorry for letting everyone who left take a part of you. 
Most of all, I am sorry for being completely incapable of loving you.
Today I stand here, possibly too far from who you used to be, but I promise to preserve you till I am worthy of being you again. 
Love, the person you’d never be.
—  Lamiya Waheed / I should have written this a long time ago

We had fun right? I mean I laughed every day with, or at you and I know you did the same. We would spend our days apart but messages from you made me feel less alone. 

You kept it light hearted, almost as if you knew that I needed the break from my own thoughts. Our ending wasn’t your finest hour, although maybe it was who you were but I was having such a good time that I let myself suppress caution.

You are a possessive person, I know this now. But what I should have told you from the start is that I was never yours to possess. 

Sometimes I miss the conversations we used to have. Sometimes I miss how you only knew me on the surface, how I didn’t have to explain why you don’t have to worry about me. 

Cutting contact from you was hard, because you had become a constant. But it was the right thing to do, before it was taken to a place where I couldn’t look back on our time together and smile despite the ending.

—  To a former flame, I am not sorry that we burnt out. Although, sometimes I wish I had of watched us burn a little longer.
