Lucas Sinclair S2 Appreciation Post
  • Is the only one who actually works to get money for Dragon’s Lair
  • Fact: has the best poses when the boys are getting their pictures taken in their ghostbuster costumes
  • Calls out Mike for assuming he should be Winston because he’s black
  • “TooOOotALY toooobuuularrRRR”
  • When Dustin thinks he’s discovered a new species, Lucas’s first instinct is to show Mr. Clarke + when Will thinks it may be from the upside down Lucas suggests they take D’art to Hopper = the only sensible child in this show. Don’t be afraid to ask for help kids!!!
  • THE ICONIC DOOR KICK !!!!!!! !!!!!!1111!!!!!!!!11!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Somehow makes jumping out of a dumpster look cool
  • Oh man, Caleb McLaughlin’s acting when he asks Max “how do you know about El?”
  • In that one line he conveys how much Lucas: 1. misses El, 2. cares about El, 3. wants to protect El, 4. is sad that El’s gone, and 5. feels guilty for not saving El. (asdjskafsdfh am I reading too much into this?? I’m sorry his friendship with El is just A Lot™ for me.)
  • Goes to his dad for love advice (seriously the only one that has any faith in adults) and listens to him (thank god there’s at least one healthy biological father-son relationship on this show)
  • After he tells Max about Eleven, he says, it feels “like yesterday” that they lost her. (Seriously FIGHT ME if you think El disappearing didn’t affect Lucas (or Dustin!))
  • Is such a good listener when talking to Max on the roof of the bus. He lets her pause as long as she needs to when she’s thinking about what she wants to say and when she finishes speaking, he doesn’t say anything right away because he’s processing what she said and wants to give a thoughtful, comforting response instead of saying the first thing that comes to mind.
  • Binoculars
  • Bandana
  • Wrist rocket
  • Most characters are lucky to get one (1) iconic accessory. This boy has THREE.
  • He also puts the black paint gunk stuff (i dont fucking know what it’s called ok??) under his eyes because when he’s gearing up to fight upside down monsters he commits to the Look™.
  • Anyone who kicks Billy Hargrove in the balls is a hero to me
  • Doesn’t let anyone talk shit about his girlfriend’s driving skills. Mike: she’s only driven in a parking lot. Lucas: “That counts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!11!!!”
  • Practices asking Max to dance. so. many. times.
  • Still manages to fuck it up. #RelatableAF.
  • His hesitation to put his hands on Max’s waist. Someone help this boy, he’s so nervous.
  • His face after Max kisses him is so precious. I can’t even describe it. Gifs don’t do it justice. Just go back and watch the whole snow ball scene again, you know you want to anyway.
  • In conclusion, Lucas Sinclair continued to be a icon in season 2 and idk how anyone couldn’t love him.

At this point everything with a cop character makes me think of Javert, so here it goes: Les Misérables in a Stranger Things AU

  • Valjean is a mayor of a small town with an adopted daughter acquired in mysterious circumstances, because nobody can stop me from messing up the timeline
  • Actually please let me call it Hawkins-sur-Mer, I don’t care if it doesn’t make sense, let me have it
  • Cosette is friends with Marius and some other kids, aka the entirety of les amis
  • Until one day Cosette disappears
  • Javert eagerly takes the case because it’s a nice opportunity to find out something about the mayor that suspiciously reminds him of a certain convict
  • Les amis decide to look for Cosette on her own but instead find another, quite confused girl in the woods
  • On her arm there is a tattoo saying EP09, so they make it into E-P-O-nine
  • ”We call her Epo-9” “Isn’t it pronounced Éponine?” “…wait, this name actually exists?”
  • Éponine turning out to have telekinesis and all that fun stuff
  • Marius is very set on the idea that she can help him find his BFF Cosette
  • Want to make it more fun? Cosette has a similar tattoo: C07 on her arm. She was nicknamed Cosette from Valjean’s first language, Italian, where 7 is sette, though her real name is Euphrasie (I’m not desperate to make it work at all, shh) (EDIT: APPARENTLY IT WORKS WITH THE FRENCH PRONUNCIATION OF 7 AS WELL, THANKS @24601error-prisonernotfound) 
  • I’m torn between making Mabeuf the person who finds EP09 first and then gets killed and making him the amis’ teacher (…alternatively the amis having a teacher named Lamarque)
  • In general, amis being way more numerous than the Stranger Things kids, Javert having a way lower empathy level than Hopper and Valjean having way more money to buy Christmas lights and hang them all around his house (and being way more willing to personally fight whatever monsters are there)
  • …okay I just don’t have set designs for les amis and didn’t feel like making them now
DE Drabbles: Learning Shinigami Sealing Part 1

Kaito paced, feeling like a caged animal. His futon was a tangled mess of blankets and sheets, testament of his inability to actually sleep. He couldn’t even find peace in fighting Shiro; it just riled him up further, pushed sleep even further out of his grasp, no matter how exhausted he became or how long they’d fought.

Finally, with a curse, Kaito pulled a top on and stalked out of his room. The shouten was silent around him, everyone asleep and in their rooms. At peace in a way he couldn’t find himself to be. He slipped through the dark hallway, bare feet silent against the wooden floor, and couldn’t help but wince at how quiet everything was.

anonymous asked:

hey! ive been following your artwork since last year’s inktober and i have to say that your art has definitely inspired me and i think this year I’d like to give learning how to draw a go? I was wondering if you had any websites or pages that had guides for beginners learning or that you looked up when you started out? :) And Thank you so much, not just for all the great art but also your AMAZING fics (mystic coffee is very close to my heart❤️)

Hi there! Wow, that’s amazing! I’m so glad my art could inspire you to get into drawing! I’m so flattered!

So I don’t have many websites but here is a youtube video that I recommend for understanding the structure of heads/faces and to give you a base to start from. (Actually I like a lot of the videos that guy does. He is good at explaining what he’s doing in a way that can be followed, which isn’t always the case with instructional videos.) I recommend drawing along with the tutorial, pausing as necessary, and then using the techniques shown to then draw the head/face from as many angles as you can think of. Adjusted repetition, that is, drawing something over and over but making critical adjustments with each iteration, is key and the fastest way to improve. 

But honestly, learning to draw really just comes down to throwing yourself at it. Find something you like to draw and then just keep going. Find artists whose art you admire and try to figure out how they’ve completed their drawings and what about it you like.Nnotice how they do their line art, how they shade, what colors they use, etc. You can pick up a lot just by studying other people’s art. 

Also, totally optional, but I also recommend posting your art somewhere. When I decided I wanted to really learn how to draw and get more serious about it I started this blog and just kept throwing things out there and now 3 years later here we are. Feedback is really great for motivation (sidenote @ everyone: never underestimate was a ‘like’ means to an artist just starting out. I’m serious.). 

I hope that helps a bit! And good luck!

Me: Is grateful that I’m broke because it means that I don’t waste all my money going on splurging sprees while online shopping. 

Also me: retail therapy is my way of coping with life, and I hate that I’m fucking broke because all I want to do is online shop.

Even knowing since the beginning Crazy Ex Girlfriend was a feminist show deconstructing tropes, I didn’t think I would end up loving Valencia Perez that much.
