i just wanna talk about smh and 1d ok im so sorry this wasnt supposed to be this long i have no control
dex grew up with sisters (let me have this he has a bunch of sisters ok) so not only was he completely unable to escape one direction he was not allowed to get away with any sort of ‘bands that have mainly young female fanbases are not real music’ misogyny that lots of teen boys and adult males have
so he likes 1d he doesnt advertise but he had to listen to them a lot so he knows their entire discography and what they have some good songs ok bro
so yeah they find their way into his workout playlists so fucking what man they’re fucking hype songs
his fave is niall bc hes chill and just wants to drink beer and play his guitar and listen to dad rock and he’s irish (dex is irish and is grandma loves niall bc she’s irish and what a sweet young lad) he’s not like die hard niall stan but he knows all of the 1d discourse from his sisters debating (im willing to listen to other opinions my back up is louis bc hes a punk)
he save up one year (and got help from his fam) to get tickets for his sisters to see a wwa concert as a birthday/christmas/every holiday present bc theyre expensive and they dont have a lot of money
his mom technically bought the tickets he just helped pay for them and the girls surprised him with a ticket for him to come with (mama poindexter: well i cant let them go alone who’s gonna watch them you have to go make sure they dont get arrested for doing something stupid) dex played it cool but it was such a fun concert and so fun to hang out with his sisters tooo
nursey now is a goddamn hipster u cant tell me he isnt into a bunch of british alternative bands and bc of his brit music phase he knew about one direction from the very start at the x factor stage (he definitely mentions this all the goddamn time when they start becoming popular but he chills out through the years)
hes been to at least one concert for every tour (he even got tickets to the madison square garden show) - he went to every concert with his sister but it was his idea to go and she was just there to keep an eye on him
also a big reason he got into the band was zayn like heres a pakistani muslim boy who’s super talented with these white dudes and that representation is super important (i also hc nursey as muslim or at least partially but zayn is a brown muslim boy killing it so yeah its awesome)
but nurseys fave tho is harry especially when harry is a total hoe with long hair and jewelry and those red carpet looks like nursey is in love but also in awe bc those sparkly boots and that floral suit like those are iconic Looks™ and nursey loves it bc gender isnt real and he loves hoe looks (zayn is like 1.5 tho bc nursey is in love)
nursey tries to serenade dex with little things one day when they’re chilling by the pond on the grass and dex punches him bc nursey is making him emo even when he knows dex doesnt have emotions (in public in front of people who can see him cry)
bitty likes them they’re no beyonce but theyre fun and attractive and yeah hes gonna have some fun dancing to them he isn’t really up with all the drama and disc*urse until the boys have 1d nights and they watch this is us and the concert dvds bc he learns a lot
he loves 2013 era harry and all the time liam (that boy is thicc and bitty 100% does not swoon)
holster like come tf on holster loves them he unironically and passionately loves one direction completely unashamed he does not care for your opinions and no one makes fun of him bc he’s a 6′4 fucking big ass hockey player who could drop kick u across campus if he wanted to
he claims he doesnt have a fave but he would die for all of them
his fave rotates seasonally and he has a different fave for each era
he went to the tmh tour and he’s gone to every tour since - he goes with his sisters bc its a bonding topic for them he sits at the edge of the floor or at the end of a row on the sides bc hes so tall he feels so bad and he tries to stay out of the way of the little girls behind him but hes nice to them and talks to them and so they like him even if hes a giant
but really he and his sisters are so close bc they have a lot of similar interests and they talk about pop culture stuff and its hard to keep intouch when hes away so much but they have group chats about 1d and tv shows and stuff so its so nice for them to keep up a strong bonding time
ransom is a britney bitch and holster dragged him into 1d. he’s in it for the memes and the drama really. (he likes the songs and thinks its fun but he wouldnt have been a fan and gone to concerts if it wasnt for holtz)
holster takes him to the wwa concert and they have a blast
holster also drags his ass to see this is us opening night (they both cry)
chowder just loves everyone and he doesnt understand why people hate 1d (or other pop artists with majority young female fan bases that ppl hate bc misogyny) when theyre so fun he’s not an active /fan/ until smh has team bonding nights involving one direction jam sessions and concert dvd watching and drunk history
on such 1d nights they put on one of the dvds and it accidentally turns into a drinking game (mainly drinking bc this part of my god did u see that !!! THAT NOTE CHANGE !!!! and ZAYN WHY !!!! and other painful parts) and some of them *cough* nursey dex and holster *cough* get possibly the most drunk they ever get bc of this
theres loud awful drunk singing along and some sobbing (this is definitely not based off of any sort of personal experience whatsoever nope never done this before)
after the movie when everyone is so drunk they talk about 1d history which is how the veterans teach the others about the exciting drama and disc*urse
lardo is a bad bitch who is tough as fuck and manages a division I mens hockey team and every single one of them is afraid of her. AND she would not let any bro tease her for liking one direction bc why the fuck not.
she has plenty of their songs thrown in arting playlists and in pump up playlists
and she knows theres nothing better to cheer holster up when he’s having a rough day than a 1d dance sesh
dont forget where you belong is the first song on her team bonding playlist bc its a love song to ur bandmates which transfers very well to love songs to ur teammates
shitty unapologetically loves 1d and boy bands and girl bands and he supports all things that young girls love but are not taken seriously bc girls like them
he’s written at least 3 papers/projects on the misogyny surrounding young girls and their interests and involvement in fandom and also boybands (he tries to fight all guys who disrespect girls’ interests and the power of teenage girls)
he’ll randomly show up to a 1d night bc obvi he’s in that gc and he’s ready to party and express emotions and dance and talk drama
he loves harry bc “THAT FLOW MAN!!! HIS FLOW IS SO SICK!!!”
he cried when harry posted the pic of the hair he chopped off and cried when he saw the another man shoot where harry was defying all sorts of societal norms it was beautiful and his flow is still so nice even this short its ok it’ll grow back better than before
one friday night the lax bros sneak over to try to prank the haus and peak in the window and see half of the hockey team in the living room drunk off their ass singing loudly to a one direction concert on the tv - holster and nursey jumping around attempting to dance along, ransom clinging to bitty on the floor crying about a ‘hiatus’, bitty soothing ransom, dex forgetting about the drink in his one hand to drink rum from the bottle, shitty naked (not surprising) and slow dancing with a life sized cut-out of harry styles with tears streaming down his face (more surprising), and chowder lying on the couch singing through mouthfuls of pie
they walk back to the lax bro house without executing the prank and they never mention it again
sometimes i have good days. then there are days where i see posts claiming my country shouldnt even be a country, but just a piece of land that anyone could live on for free. all based on a yes, very admittedly terrible history, but still a past in which a large amount of citizens condemn. also, denouncing an entire nationality as demons from the lowest depths of hell is pretty extreme.
trans-exclusionary radical feminists, basically ppl who think trans girls DONT count as girls n all that stuff!! its bad beans :c
im rly bad at explaining it tho im sorry ngfjk
OK EDITING THIS POST:
“They’re ‘feminists’ but believe transwomen are evil men who are trying to push themselves into women’s experiences and also sneak in and r//pe 'real women’ (cis) and all kinds of Badness” (quote from a pal, thank you dude!!!)
Scenario where S/O's quirk is speed, and uses it as advantage when they are sparring with Todoroki to kiss him on the cheek or fluster him during it? thanks i really like ur blog lol <3
Yayyy more fluff! Thanks for requesting and for being adorable! And sorry if it’s a bit short, I ran out of both time and ideas XD
Todoroki turned around desperately, his face red, his dignity shattered.
Your classmates’ giggling only helped to distract him even more, as he uselessly tried to catch you…or at least catch a glimpse of you! You were so fast he couldn’t even see you!
It was humiliating, damn, you knew just how easily flustered he was by PDA…why did you have to do this at school grounds?? In the middle of training?? It had been already five solid minutes since All Might announced the fight began, and all the contact you two had had…were your quick, uncontrollable kisses! His cheeks, his chin, his forehead…quite a detailed work you were pulling yourself through! It wasn’t easy to beat someone like Todoroki, let alone shaming him! You knew better than anyone which his weaknesses were, and it had nothing to do with blind spots, frailty or flaws. His one and only weakness…was you.
And you were going to take advantage of that till the very end.
“[name], please” your opponent sighed, impatient “let’s get this done already!”
“Nope!” your voice came from out of nowhere and he literally shrieked, causing you to laugh even louder “first you need to catch meee”
How??? All he was able to see was the moving, blue blur of your uniform and the cloud of dust you left behind! It was impossible, how could he even…
He blushed even harder, since this time you had dared to assault his nose. How did you even do that!? Your quirk was surely amazing, you had basically appeared right in front of him and he couldn’t predict it!
“Come on, Todoroki!” Kaminari yelled from the crowd “hurry up already!”
“Yeah, you can’t lose to a girl! You need to be a man!” Kirishima added, but immediately retracted his words “but wait…isn’t it bad for a guy to hurt a girl?? What is the manly answer??” he grabbed his head, exasperated “Hell! Manliness is confusing!”
Indeed it was…but you were even more confusing! Also, Kirishima was somewhat right…he didn’t want to hurt you! And he knew you didn’t want to hurt him either, that’s why you were pulling all of that “kissing warfare” in the first place. None of you wanted to hurt your significant other, so what could he possibly do??
“Come on, Shoto” you cooed into his ear and disappeared yet again into the endless cloud of dust “don’t you want to fight? Don’t let the chance slide”
Without thinking twice, he suddenly stomped his right foot on the ground and froze the dusty surface, turning it into wet, slippery ice your hurried feet weren’t counting on. You gasped as you inevitably slid on his creation, falling forwards into his ready, expectant arms. And, when you hadn’t even got the chance to get over the shock yet, he pulled you into an abrupt, sloppy kiss right in the mouth that got you onto cloud nine in no time.
He was going to fight fire with fire.
The whole class entered into a turmoil, half of them cheering for love and the others turning away in embarrassment or disgust, as they saw the class’ top hero devouring your mouth in a slow, potent kiss you totally weren’t ready for. Your knees buckled, your heart drummed and your hands were lost and disoriented as they didn’t know where to settle. The speed with which everything had happened stunned you, and lets just say was at least three times harder to concentrate with his lips gently moving between yours. You had been totally defeated.
“I win” Todoroki said, pulling away, and easily yet carefully pinning your already tired, flustered body into the ground.
“Uhh??” you were way too confused to even react “what the hell…everything happened so fast I…!”
“You are going to complain about fast??” your boyfriend arched a brow, offering you a hand to pick you up from the ground “such an hypocrite”
You laughed, accepting his help and standing up, cleaning the dust away form your clothes.
“Don’t act all assertive when your face is as red as a fresh ripe tomato” you pinched his cheek, earning a disapproving glance “Well played though, you are a worthy rival”
He couldn’t help but smile, holding your hand fondly, and guiding you away from the ring.
“I should probably say the same thing…those kisses were quite potent”
I know you're venting and not fishing for compliments, but at the risk of pissing you off; you don't bother me. Not in the slightest. That's an honest truth. Maybe I'm not close enough to you to have a valid opinion, but from what interaction I have had with you - I like you. I accept that you have flaws; I don't give a flying fuck. I'm a horrible human being too.
We know Pink Diamond is apart of the Diamond Authority.
Her first and ONLY colony project was Earth.
And Rose Quartz destroyed her!
After viewing all the episodes of Steven Universe, from the Pilot till now, I figured out why Rose shattered Pink D.
The recent episodes gave me all the answers I needed to make this conclusion. WARNING: IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN SEASON 4 EP 10-14, STOP READING, FOR THERE ARE SPOILERS BELOW. please.
In the Episode “Steven’s Dream”, we find a very sad Blue Diamond kneeling in front of Pink Diamond’s palanquin. She’s grieving and saying “Im sorry, I should have done more.” Then when Greg comes up to her, she tells him “This is where it happened, where she was..broken.” Okay, so in this episode and in the previous episode entitled “The Answer”, a diamond’s palanquin is their form of transportation on the planet they are currently colonizing. We see Blue Diamond summon hers to leave earth after deciding to take Greg to Pink’s Human Zoo. So, if we know that Pink Diamond was taking human’s from earth to this “zoo” then it could be concluded that this was what she was in the middle of doing before Rose took her life. She was about to leave earth with yet another human for her collection and Rose Quartz finally stood up to her. Rose couldn’t bare to see another human being ripped away from the place they called home. She knew Pink Diamond wouldn’t stop no matter how many times she pleaded with her. So she did the unthinkable….
But it wasn’t just the zoo that caused Rose to act out of character. If you look back at the Mural, Pink Diamond was conducting experiments! She tested the Humans to see if they had any special abilities ..and as the mural shows, they did not. They failed every test.
Because humans had no gems on their bodies and they’re physical form was solid and not of light, Pink Diamond became intrigued to the point of obsession. Her mission was to just colonize the planet to fit the needs of Homeworld, but instead she got side tracked with the existence of human beings. And because Rose Quartz emerged from earth soil, I believe that played a part in her understanding that what Pink Diamond was doing was wrong and inhumane.
i havent been drawing much lately so i figured id use my blog like an actual blog to get something new on here, i dont think i’ll say anything profound but im all about being candid so if youre interested in that, cool.
around a year ago i made a big effort to make a multi chapter webcomic that i was hoping would get me noticed to snag some art job in some cartoon studio, but my intentions were so awful that i just sorta fell apart and was feeling burnt out every day. i bought lots of storyboarding books and studied tips on writing and looked for some kind of education to tell me how to do a good job, but then it wasnt about making a comic anymore. i had basically rewritten my story about 3 times and lost all of the fun i had when i thought it up, and i just fizzled out on it and i dont think i’ll be working on it again any time soon (i then went for a shorter idea that was only about being fun for me, and thats where The Red Muscle came from, one of the few projects ive ever finished).
during this time i would see the artists i look up to and how their circle of connections and friends gets tighter and tighter and i would get bothered so much with how badly i wanted to be in that circle yet never felt like i was a part of it, and that thought process poisoned everything i tried to make for months. ive been spending my time these days just having fun thinking up ideas and not worrying about making everything a finished piece i can shove in some art director’s face. i dont spend nearly as much time drawing as i did in the past, but i’m in a much better emotional space currently. i still think working at a cartoon studio would be a dream come true, but i dont let the idea of me not working there in the next 5-10 years cripple me anymore.
i think i felt like posting these unfinished pages and thumbnails just to help myself accept that not every idea has to be finished, or even be good. sometimes you can work on something and if you feel like what you have isnt doing anything for you, its ok to stop and do something else that feels better for you. i also thought some of these thumbs were really good! i tried really hard to make nice pages with cool camera angles and and page layouts, i practiced my perspective a lot and thought these had some of my biggest artistic growth in a long time.
if you bothered to read my ramblings all the way down to here, i should say thank you and im sorry! haha
