i should learn how to do that

anonymous asked:

Think rationally about this: Why are you bulling on host sites and pointing the finger at them if you yourself, don't appreciate it when it's done to you? So, because you got busted, you won't be happy until everyone else gets busted? Haven't you ever read anything on a host site before? Host sites SHARE a variety of genres for varied tastes. You share is very limited to only some of yuri/GL . You should not be concerned with what host sites are sharing if you like to share just as much.

Salty Anon? Is that you? 😂

I’m not bullying the manga hosting sites. How can I do that? I’m just some ordinary yuri fan here. 🙄

The reason I learned about the yuri I’m sharing here is because of them too. I have always admitted that I read stuff from Mangafox, Dynasty Scans and yurimanga.xyz. I even tell the others to look at those sites if I don’t have the manhwa/manga they are looking for.

Before you accuse me of bullying, take some time to read some of my past posts. I never told anyone I hate those sites. I was upset coz Lezhin reported my posts due to copyright infringement. And yet, they can’t do anything about the other manga hosting sites who are actually ripping those chapters from the community and scanlators where I get these manhwas. If there is anyone I hate right now, it’s Lezhin coz these scanlators’ efforts were wasted, but there is nowhere in there I bully the manga hosting sites. Is saying “fuck” a form of bullying now? Geez, it’s just an expression Anon. Learn to fucking chill… 😒

I am fully aware what I’m sharing here is illegal, but you can’t blame me if I get upset. I will say how I feel coz this is my blog and though I want to respect your opinion, I won’t let you accuse me of something I am not doing. If you don’t like the things I say or post here, feel free to block me. 😊

For your reference, below is the definition of bully. Take note of the words “intimidates” and “overbearing.” I believe those words describe you a lot. 😘

Bully - a blustering, quarrelsome, overbearing person who habitually badgers and intimidates smaller or weaker people.

salam. im sorry for this, but i dont really have anyone to talk to. ive been in a lot of pain, conflict, grief and just outright sadness. so so much of me wants to transfer, change my major from the sciences to the arts, because what im learning now can barely get me to wake up in the mornings without regret. what do i do? if what is meant for me will happen does that mean i should give up? that the arts was never meant for me? if so, what should i do about the sadness? how do i make it go away?

i’m sorry you’ve been going through this heaviness. in the end i can’t tell you what to do. but i don’t think you should sell yourself short. if the arts is something that is fulfilling for you then you owe it to yourself to pursue it. if you’re not passionate about the sciences, then you run the risk of feeling trapped later on. it’s never too late to change your mind about something. it’s okay to explore if you have the means to do it. society often tries to pressure us into knowing what we want out of life right out of high school but the truth is we never stop learning about ourselves and what makes us happy, so i suggest you give yourself a shot. im sending all my love and i hope your days get softer.

12 Things Happy People do Differently

Happy people value and choose:

1. Love over Fear: People, who are truly happy, are less fearful and more loving. They perceive every moment, every challenge, and every person as an opportunity to learn more about themselves and the world.

2. Acceptance over Resistance: Happy people know that you can’t really change things by denying and resisting them. So when bad things happen, they don’t fight, get angry and complain. Instead, they ask themselves questions like: What can I learn from this? How can I make this better?

3. Forgiveness over Unforgiveness: Truly happy individuals understand that it’s destructive to hold on to feelings of anger. Instead, they choose to forgive and let go, understanding that (in the end) forgiveness is a gift they give themselves.

4. Trust over Mistrust: They trust themselves … and they have learned to figure out the trustworthy people – and those they should avoid.

5. Meaning over Ambition: Happy people do the things they do because it adds meaning and purpose to their lives. They’re not driven by the need to gain acceptance, praise and approval from others.

6. Challenges over Obstacles: Happy people see problems as challenges, and as opportunities to explore new ways of seeing and doing things. That is, challenges are something that help them to grow.

7. Selflessness over Selfishness: Happy people seek out ways ways to give to others - of themselves, their time, of their money, and their gifts. That is, they’re not self-focused and self-absorbed.

8. Kindness over Harshness: Happy people are gentle and kind with themselves and others. They know the importance and power of self-love, self-forgiveness and self-acceptance - and they freely love, forgive and accept other people, too.

9. Gratitude over Ingratitude: No matter where they are, or who they are with, happy people have the capacity to see beauty where others would only see ugliness – and they’re quick to express their gratitude, as well.

10. Being Present over Being Disengaged: Happy people know how to live in the moment, appreciating what they have and who they are with. They are not constantly being dragged down by the past, or distracted by what could happen (or go wrong) in the future.

11. Positivity over Negativity: Regardless of the circumstances of life, happy people are able to adopt and maintain a positive, and upbeat, attitude and perspective.

12. Taking Responsibility over Blaming: Happy people assume full ownership for their lives. They assume responsibility for their life, choices, decisions, actions, reactions, beliefs and attitudes.

The 7 Elements of a SCENE

There are few things as soul-crushing in the writing process (at least to me) than getting a bunch of characters in a room with the intention of something happening, then the characters proceed to stand around and stare at each other.  

Or worse, look at you like this. 

My characters didn’t know why they were there. I didn’t know why they were there either. I had no clue what they were supposed to be doing, so I’d start throwing random instructions at them: “Fight, characters! You guys should fight now! Maybe fighting will make this event have a purpose!” Which inevitably resulted in characters going through the motions of battle for no apparent reason, like they had all lost their minds.

What was the problem? I didn’t know how to write a scene. I didn’t know what a scene was. I had a vague definition that it was something about changing scenery, or just “something happening”.

It’s not. And once I learned what a scene was, my characters got to stop pummeling each other, while wishing they could pummel me. 

So what is a scene? 

The definition of a scene is kind of like the definition of a story. Story is change, a massive change in the life of your main character. A scene is change too, but much smaller, and part of that huge story change. You couldn’t have the BIG change without these tiny changes. Thus, a scene is not switching scenery. It’s not flipping to a new Character’s POV. It’s one segment of change, which triggers the next change, which triggers the next, which gradually build into sequences, which build into Acts, which build into story. 

So what goes into a scene? How does it work?

1. Alternating Charges

If a scene opens positive, it will turn negative by the end. If it opens negative, it will end positive. Simple. 

2. Character Goals

Everybody in a scene wants something. If they don’t want anything, they shouldn’t be in the scene. And these characters, with their often opposing goals, are going to employ different tactics on each other to get what they want. Which creates …

3. Escalating Conflict

Conflict is created when one character wants one thing and another wants something else, right? So the characters in the scene are each pushing for something different, each new tactic increasing in determination. And what are these actions called?  

4. Beats

The beats of a scene are exchanges of action and reaction. One character does something, another character reacts. All exchanges (beats) are pushing the scene onward, building tension and conflict, until finally …

5. Turns & Revelations

The scene turns. The positive has changed to negative. Something has been discovered. The story has spun in a new direction.

6. Connection to Story Objective

Every scene must be connected to the BIG goal of the story, the main character is taking small actions to reach that big goal. If it isn’t obviously connected to this big plot, it won’t make sense. Your reader won’t know why the heck they’re reading the scene. Which brings us to … 

7. Logic & Necessity  

Every scene must be necessary. It must be able to be linked with the previous scene. “Because that happened in the previous scene, THIS must happen in this scene.”

So! To see how that all works, let’s break down a scene from Tangled. (Because I used it in the last post to map out how a premise works, and my little writer heart can’t resist symmetry.)

Which scene? The one right after this happens: 

Opening Charge: Positive. She’s realized everything. 

Rapunzel’s Goal: Rise up against her mother – finally. 

Gothel’s Goal: Regain control.

Escalating Conflict: They’re fighting over who controls Rapunzel, and this battle causes them to go from “mother and daughter” to “enemies”. The conflict builds nicely in this scene, causing the story turn.

Connection to Story Objective: Throughout the movie, the big thing Rapunzel wants is freedom, she wants her life to begin, she wants to have a new dream. This is the moment she figures out how to do that; it’s not escaping the tower, it’s escaping Gothel’s control over her.

So! Here’s the scene.

Beat 1

“Rapunzel? Rapunzel, what’s going on up there?”

Ignores her. Still processing the tremendous implications of this revelation. 

Beat 2

“Are you alright?" 

"I’m the lost princess.” (Dumbfounded. Almost whispering it to herself.)

Beat 3

“Oh, please speak up Rapunzel! You know how I hate the mumbling.” (Bullying.)

“I am the lost princess! Aren’t I?” (Fighting back. She will not be bullied anymore.)

Beat 4

Gothel stares, stunned. She’s rendered temporarily speechless, because her secret’s been revealed finally, and her victim is actually fighting against her.

“Did I mumble, Mother? Or should I even call you that?” (Accusing. Drawing herself up taller. Looking down on Gothel and glaring. She’s seeing her clearly for the first time in her life.)

Beat 5

After a pause, thinking up a tactic. “Oh, Rapunzel, do you even hear yourself? How could you ask such a ridiculous question?” (Laughs. Ridicules. Attempts to make her feel childish, dumb, worthy of being mocked. Tactics which have always worked. She even begins to hug her.)

Rapunzel pushes her. “It was you! It was all you!” (Still accusing and angry, but pain is beginning to show. It’s almost like she’s giving her a chance to explain herself.)

Beat 6

“Everything I did was to protect you.” (And Gothel doesn’t say anything redeeming. She’s holier than thou, regal, bestowing kindness on an ungrateful, stupid child. Trying to control through guilt.)

Rapunzel rams her out of the way. 

Beat 7

“Rapunzel!” (Shouting. Now trying anger.)

“I’ve spent my entire life hiding from people who would use me for my power …” (Leaves her.)

Beat 8

"Rapunzel!” (Still trying the anger angle.)

“But I should have been hiding from you.” (Throwing the truth at her.)

Beat 9

“Where will you go? He won’t be there for you.” (She’s tried everything else. It’s time to attack her heart.)

“What did you do to him?” (Fear)

Beat 10

“That criminal is to be hanged for his crimes.” (She’s keeping up the disapproving mother act, but striking her right where it will hurt her most.)

“No.” (She’s stopped. Shrinking in on herself. Staring, horrified. And Gothel thinks she’s won.)

Beat 11

“Now, now.  It’s alright. Listen to me. All of this is as it should be.” She goes to pat Rapunzel’s head, a gesture symbolic of her superiority, her physical, mental, and emotional control over her victim.

Rapunzel grabs Gothel’s wrist. “No! You were wrong about the world. And you were wrong about me! And I will never let you use my hair again!" 

Beat 12

Gothel wrenches free, stumbling backwards in shock and anger, breaking the mirror in the process. 

Rapunzel walks away. She’s escaped Gothel emotionally now.

Beat 13

"You want me to be the bad guy? Fine. Now I’m the bad guy.” (Well, now emotional control is over. It’s time to start stabbing Rapunzel’s boyfriend.)

This action has no reaction, interestingly. It leaves us hanging, a cliffhanger created with only beats. 

Closing Charge: Negative. She’s now a full-fledged villain, the motherly persona shed, and she’s determined to get what she wants whatever the cost. 

Turn: It changed from positive to negative,  and now we’ve got a Flynn-stabbing witch to deal with.  

Revelation: She’s always been evil. She has always been the bad guy. The motherly act was just that, an act. 

Logic & Necessity: This scene fits with the previous scene, and the one that follows.     

Though I’ve seen these concepts in many books, the place I first learned about it (and the best resource for scene design in my opinion) is the book Story by Robert McKee. It’s helped me countless times, is one of my favorite books on storytelling, and I highly recommend it if you write anything.

I realize that these definitions were a little vague, so I’ll be explaining things more thoroughly in subsequent posts. 

I don’t regret loving you nor do I regret letting you break my heart, for if you hadn’t, I wouldn’t have learned how a man should treat me. I wouldn’t have met him, he who helped me recover after you left me broken. Yes, it hurt to be left behind and I wouldn’t wish that pain upon my worst enemy, but I’m glad I was able to have that experience. The way I see it is you let me go so that I could find my way to him, my one true love.

something i don’t see a lot in tumblr’s rhetoric about mental illness and recovery is a distinction between recovery through suppression and conformity and recovery through coping.

suppression and conformity is not recovery.  it implies that you are simply repressing the symptoms of your mental illness or disorder and causing yourself more pain.  suppression implies that you are ignoring your mental illness, not acknowledging your symptoms, and conformity implies that you are putting on a neurotypical facade.  so many people assume that’s the end goal of therapy and medication (should people choose to do that) or general recovery. that people are trying to “cure” you.  it’s where i think a lot of the “i shouldn’t need to get better” rhetoric comes from.

but that’s not what recovery is.  recovery is coping.  it’s learning about yourself and how you tick.  it’s learning to recognize and acknowledge symptoms so you can better understand them and, ultimately, not let them control you.  it’s understanding that being “wired” differently isn’t a bad thing, but it can make things harder, and learning to recognize those distinctions and address them so you can make your life easier.  it’s recognizing that for some people, therapy and medication are the path to coping, and that the end goal of them is to make that learning and self-discovery process easier so that those people can do it independently in the long run.

recovery is not changing yourself to fit the world.  recovery is learning how to look the world in the eye and say “i now know how to coexist with you now.  i now know how to thrive.”


Welp…looks like we should get back to work.

Happy Birthday, Normandy Party Ship. 

Honestly I hate this culture we’ve created on this website where we attack public figures for saying or doing the wrong thing even when they don’t mean to. This leaves no room for error or learning, only room for “perfection” in the eyes of online bloggers. The attempts to “expose” celebrities for their problematic tendencies is annoying and uncalled for. I’m not saying we should defend ACTUALLY racist, homophobic, or otherwise bigoted people. I’m just saying that if we call everything offensive and problematic, we lose sight of what is actually offensive and problematic. Instead of educating people, we’re bullying them and saying it is their fault for not being aware. This website is so annoying and no matter how hard I try to get away from people like this, I always end up seeing them on my dash. Think critically. What is actually offensive. What actually bothers you, not the person you want tumblr to think you are? 



pastagay  asked:

How did you do that red and blue effect thing on your dave art?

Ho ho ho i learned this trick literally yesterday, let me share:
(Ps. I’m using photoshop for this)

1. Flatten your image and make two copies of it. Set the top layer to “screen”.

2. While having the top copy selected go to image > adjustments > levels; a window with mountains should pop up:

3. Click where it says RGB and select red from the list; then grab the middle gray triangle under the graph area and pull it all the way to the right, click OK. Your picture should change colours!

4. Do a similar thing to the second copy following the steps:
- select blue and then move the middle slider to the right,
- dont close the window yet!!
- change blue to green and pull its middle slider to the right as well,
- click okay

5. By now you should have 3 layers: the original one (must be on the bottom), and two weird colourful copies above it. Only the top copy should be set to screen. Your pic should look like the original version alone.

6. Easiest part: grab the screen copy and move it to the left/right! The RGB split will happen :D

That’s it, you’re ready to go!! Hope it helped!! <3 If you’re confused you can check out this site, they explained it pretty well.

Episode- Choose your own adventure

(bc of @nerdqueenofthepumpkins post )


So I’ve seen people asking/looking for places to practice verb conjugation, and while there are sites that will give you the conjugations for a verb, there hasn’t been any practice sheets I’ve seen like for other languages.

So in an effort to do something a bit worthwhile while procrastinating, I decided to try my hand at making one for Korean!

I tried to include the major tenses learned in level 1-2, with some of the most common connective suffixes too. Below the suffixes is noun modifiers, which is how you create adjective form verbs. I also included a little place for you to take any notes. (It should be noted my * and - note on either example sheet are actually rules to remember.)

But anyway, I hope people can find these useful! Feel free to share, but please do credit me (my url is at the top of the sheet) If there’s any questions or things you think I missed please let me know~ The sheet (both colored and white) and the two examples, can be found here (I’ll also add it to my masterlist)

Everybody is posting their skam theories so I thought I would post mine. You know how Even disappears all the time? I think that’s because he’s a reptilian shapeshifter. Every full moon he converts back to a tiny lizard self and can’t convert back until a few weeks later. He is trying to talk to Isak, but he’s a lizard so nothing comes out. He just sits outside of Isak’s window doing lizard things. Perhaps he should learn how to climb inside Isak’s apartment and do some lizard screams or something.

i. you told me you were sad and i told you the world is lucky to have you and it made me feel good to be nice to you even though you wronged me. it feels good to tell you i love you, to tell you that you are perfect the way you are, to tell you that you are more than your mistakes.
ii. and yeah, i’m not lying, but here’s the secret: i think i do it less for you and more for me.
iii. i think if i tell you how great you are enough, i’ll forget about everything you ever did to me. and maybe it doesn’t work in the long run, but it works in the moment. and i’m learning to take things moment by moment these days.
iv. so yeah, this is probably the wrong decision. i shouldn’t be here to build you up. everybody tells me to cut you out. and here’s the secret: they’re right. i should. but talking to you makes me feel like a good person, something that ignoring you never could. and maybe if i try hard enough, you’ll fall back in love with me. and maybe this time, i’ll be the one who leaves.
v. so i’m comforting you when you’re sad and telling you that you are more than your mistakes and i mean it, i really mean it but
vi. just because i can’t let go of you doesn’t mean i don’t wish i never met you.

Part 2 of Your Fav is Genetically Wrong! I took some character requests on the Warriors Amino app and these guys were popular.

I’m again thanking @climbstudio for all of the genetics posts she’s made, because that’s what got me interested in doing this to begin with! I’m still new to genetics and I’m trying to learn, so please offer some helpful critique if you guys have any. c: 

I’m not positive about Ivypool’s realistic design and how accurate it is, the more I look at it, the more I think it should be different. Cats with a white parent confuse the heck outta me still!

Hey guys, since I constantly get messages from people asking me how to lose weight, and about specifics…and I really don’t have the time to create a full blown course, I decided to do the next best thing - to share with you the program I follow. The creator of the program was kind enough to give me an article he has written himself which kind of introduces you to it. So if you are not really getting the results you want, please read the article and learn more about this program.

Article: Why You Should Only “Diet” for Half the Day

I fully endorse it - it has changed my life. (p.s. It is only a diet - and I had tried many before, but this was the one which made a breakthrough. Don’t get me wrong I do fitness exercises too, but the real bones of my progress came from this diet, if you feel like you’re stuck - this is the place that can get you out of that zone.)

About Mark and High School Rapper

Guys, before the High School Rapper officially on air, I have something to share with you. That all the contestants are minors. They may diss Mark or even worse, but we shouldn’t attack on them tbh. They’re still kids, still learning and growing, just like Mark, and sometimes they make mistakes, and they’re surely childish. Don’t make big fuss about it. We should protect Mark by telling him how good he was doing on the show, cheering him, and giving the haters (maybe possible) constructive opinions, we shouldn’t give the contestants the nonsense hate. Best, we could try our best to ignore them all and fully focus on our Mark. Because the moment we make big fuss about thing, some may use it to attack Mark more, that the scenario we’re always afraid,right? So Mark stans, because he’s our pride, let’s be his pride too! Fighting Mark (and us).

(And obviously if kids use the thing that he’s an idol from big company to diss him, it’s just too childish and it isn’t worth our attention. Because so what is the point then? Since an idol like Mark, who is debuted 3 freaking times + has 4 promotions in a span less than a year + does his promote activities while preparing another comeback and attending this show, is freaking awesome. Not everyone can do this, that’s a real talent, hard-working is a real talent. I, a fully adult, can’t even do that. So proud of him)
