gryffindor, where the brave dwell at heart

Sometimes I feel like theme makers have no rights.

Why? Let’s see, theme makers generally have to:

  • answer things in their inbox politely on a regular basis
  • fix bugs on their coding as soon as possible
  • post codes on a regular basis (before people start going into the inbox and demand that they do so)
  • do all of this, as well as juggling whatever commitments they have in real life, such as studying, or having a job, or actually having a life.

In addition, here is a general process that goes behind making a theme:

  1. Plan the theme. Draw inspiration from various places, make sure you’re original enough, or just whack it and sketch something out.
  2. Open the tumblr customiser, and start translating the idea into code.
  3. Fuck something up, then spend ages trying to fix it, only to then break something else and end up having to fix that, too.
  4. Debug the code and add your credits, trying to make sure that people can’t delete them too easily.
  5. Code meta options into the theme and painstakingly design a colour scheme that works, while making sure that your booleans are all properly coded, that your colour options all work, and that common add-ons (music player, updates tab, freehostedscripts, etc) don’t fuck up when you install them.
  6. Make previews. Find appropriate posts of each post type to reblog, look for suitable header/sidebar/background images, photoshop accordingly if needed, test dimensions.
  7. Write feature lists and options, customisation notes, theme documentation, etc.
  8. Post the theme, ensure that your screenshot shows off the best parts of the theme, tag it appropriately, submit it to relevant places, etc.

And yet, many theme makers also have to:

  • deal with things like people removing the credit and other people stealing their coding
  • deal with customisation questions that they don’t want to respond to, or questions about things that have been asked over and over again and are written on the FAQ
  • deal with rude people demanding that their answer their message and/or fix their bug right now, at once, immediately
  • deal with even ruder people telling them off for being rude when the question was on their FAQ or in the theme documentation
  • deal with people demanding that they re-publish ______ theme that has already been revamped/deleted

Sister Zoned - Dean x Reader

A/N: Final part! I changed it SO many times… still don’t know if I’m entirely happy with it. But, that’s more my own hang up than anything, I’m sure. I’m very rarely entirely happy with my writing. Probably should have posted earlier in the day, but that’s alright. Anyways, I’ve had fun with this Reader insert. Still have a LOT of work to go with my writing, but it’s been a nice little trip. Now, for Sammy’s turn… *wiggles eye brows* and the Dean Request I’ve been working on! I’ve also got a few ideas for a few more convention drabbles. I have a little time away from everything, so it should be a little easier on me to get a bit more out! Fingers crossed!

Warnings: Mild smut, Mild angst/argument, Swearing, not a HUGE amount of editing, Fluff ending (not a warning, but oh well!)

The next four days ended up being more of a vacation for you and the boys than anything. You went to the beach, out to the bar, and just relaxed. Some nights were spent playing cards until two in the morning, while others were just talking over some beers. You felt more free, and normal, than you had in years.

You enjoyed hunting with the boys, but this? This is what you lived for. The teasing Sam hurtled you and Dean’s way for whatever it was that was happening between you two didn’t even break the mood.

I spent more time figuring out the teams than I should have. There are more than a few nuggets in there, I hope you enjoy them all.

These are not made from scratch. All bases are from the Pokemon game series. I just edited them. Some more heavily than others…. xD

I didn’t want to include obvious spoilers… which is why a certain person’s name here is what it is. lol Knowing spoilers, though, you can enjoy certain pokemon selections more than someone who hasn’t read the manga. :) I just wanted to respect those who haven’t made it that far, though!

Edit 6/4

Switched some ‘mon around because I accidentally mixed a few up when putting this together… ^__^; Also, yes, Marco has half a team… :P It’s the number one comment on this and while I love feedback, there’s a lot more interesting stuff going on within the teams if you look close enough! :)

Go! - Part 2

I probably should have spent some more time editing, but I just couldn’t let you guys wait any longer.
I hope you’ll enjoy how everything will turn out. :)

“You think that she’ll be okay, nya?”

“I don’t really know, to be honest.”

Hanayo and Rin were sitting on the couch their three guests had occupied previously. Now that they were gone, all that was left were their open bags and a foreboding feeling in the depths of the girl’s stomachs.

“You know what it means, nya! If they are dressing up like this… They picked their favourite suits. I’m worried about Honoka-chan, nya.” Rin hid her face behind the pot of tea she was drinking. Just remembering how terrifying Umi had looked made her shiver. Maki and Eli hadn’t been better.

“Well, Honoka-chan still has Tsubasa-chan with her. She’ll be fine.” Even though she tried to calm Rin down, Hanayo herself doubted that the former leader of Muse was going to be unscratched after the so called Soldier Trio was done with its interrogation.

Weekend Giveaway - Apologetic Edition - Finished!

Hello! I came back from my road trip totally intending to get back to flailing over dragon art - and then some things happened, and I ended up avoiding Tumblr for the past two weeks. It had nothing to do with FR or anyone from the FR community, and I feel bad that I let it affect my dragon blog. (In hindsight, I should have spent MORE time on the dragon blog and just ignored the rest of Tumblr, since the FR community always cheers me up and Tumblr Savior is still a thing!) Since I’ve been spending most of my time walking off of cliffs as a Rogue in FFXIV for the past week, I didn’t do my usual giveaway last weekend and I don’t have anything new for this weekend - so how about something old and pricey for this weekend?:3

Anyone need/want a Wildclaw scroll?  

Rules are the same as always. Reblog once with your FR username and ID # to enter - likes makes me feel loved but don’t count as an entry. You can enter multiple names/IDs in one reblog, so long as they’re only entered ONCE - if they show up in another post I’ll ignore both entries. (So enter your friends if you like, but make sure no one else is entering them as well!) You don’t have to be following me to enter.:) Giveaway ends sometime Sunday, November 16, before rollover; I’ll update this post when it’s done so be sure to check back here. 

Good luck, and have a great weekend! (If I’m not more active next week, feel free to send me PMs reminding me that spending too much time playing FFXIV makes me jittery and dragon art always cheers me up!)

*edit* And done! Congratulations Rothkind - hope you like it!:)
