i still have the pre final

I think it’s very interesting when people talk about their love stories. Like when you guys blog about, “my and my husband, me and my boyfriend” or just anyone talking about how they fell in love. 
There seem to be these very definitive phases. It doesn’t matter how long that phase lasts. There seems to be a moment where you know it transitioned to the next phase. People will be like, “Oh my God, we were friends for six years and there was this moment and we knew and then it changed. Then there was a moment and it got even deeper. Then there was a moment and we knew” or like “I saw this person and there was this moment and we knew.” Everyone has a different story with how they connect with someone else and what i find interesting is the moment where it switches. You always hope that switch is going to move forward and not backwards because it can happen either way. I always wanted to structure the song where each individual section of the song sounded like a move forward in the relationship but still being listenable. So I wanted the verse to seem like it’s own phase of a relationship, the pre-chorus to sound like it’s own phase of a relationship, and the chorus to sound like it’s own phase of a relationship. I wanted them to all have their own identity but seem like they were getting deeper and more fast paced as the song went on. So finally I was able to achieve that in a song

April 19 2017: What motivates you? 

 I accidentally hit post on this before finishing lol and I’m late again it’s 12:29am April 20 What motivates me is that if someone else can do it, I can too. Even though I’m a woman and a minority, in America today I have all the same opportunities as anyone and I am just as capable. It’s empowering believing this ᕦ(ò_óˇ)ᕤ 

 I went to the gym finally today. I didn’t want to go but I ended up going and it was actually satisfying lol. I also played tennis! Anyways I’m still not done with the pre-lab write up that’s due tomorrow before lab :L so I’m going to go do that right now fml Organic Chem is scary 



art dump of my two main inquisitors, or “quick stuff I’ve done lately during insomniac nights and in between other stuff”. It’s not bad to finally have some art of them that doesn’t make me cringe, the last time I’ve drawn them was ages ago.
Myriem Lavellan, post-Trespasser and taking no shit from no man (or god) and still long haired kicking ass some time during Inquisition 

Actual Trash Child Noam Adaar, respectively pre Inquisition and between DA:I and Trespasser, when all he did was coming up with ridiculous and absolutely impractical decorative armors to intimidate nobles

Also someone else asked for a Jason/Thalia reunion and it sort of came out not-quite-like-the-books-but-also-sort-of-like-the-books

and now I’m crying because Thalia Grace is one of the strongest characters in the series and I’d never really thought about it before but she is, oh she is, because she lost her two year old brother when she was only a kid and I’m imagining losing my little brother, like God, I can’t even imagine wanting to wake up ever again after, and not only did she lose him, she thought it was her mother’s fault, and that probably broke her even more because even though she hated her mom their must have been some remnant of hopeful trust still in there and just Thalia Grace okay?

And when she finally sees him, finds him, finally, after all those years she belived him to be dead, she must be sobbing inside but keeps her cool and man, we need to talk about Thalia Grace more.

(And also talk about Thalia and Jason pre Hera-abduction, being dorky little kids together aaAAAWWW)


Heya everyone, time for some progress updates for the newest video~

We are very close to wrapping up pre-production work.  The animatic to the video is undergoing its final tweaks now.  It’s actually so close to being finalized that we have started actual animation and background production (Just look at sleepy Vivi here, resting up before stuff goes nuts).  I’d say we have about a minute’s worth of BGs and a few tiny scenes with in-progress or mostly done animation in it.

As for me personally, I apologies for being fairly quiet lately.  I am still in the “don’t have a job” camp here but I have been doing some freelance work to make up for it.  As for what it is I am freelancing for, when the stuff I worked on gets released, I’ll let ya’ll know.  I can’t say much right now, but I have a feeling a lot of you know about the series already.

Also, me and @artsyfeathersartsyblog have been discussing the potential of setting up a Patreon.  We’re still tinkering around with what all that would entail. It’d be quite a bit of work but it would be nice for us to have a way to smooth out our production of these videos.

That’s the gist for now though!  We hope to have more to show you before too long!

Thanks for all ya’lls support~

**chants** bar fight!Everlark!!

Anon…you have no idea how much heartache I went through to write this for you. I started something almost immediately after you sent me this message, back in November (cringes to the max). But I just didn’t have the will to finish what I started so I sat on it. When I finally returned to try again, the dreaded in-laws were sucking all the creativity from a one hundred mile radius. Two more scrapped versions until I finally managed this. I hope you enjoy my humble offering. My thanks to @peetabreadgirl for pre-reading to make sure I hadn’t completely lost my writing mojo. If it still sucks, blame her. I kid, it’s all on me. RATED E: Because it’s me. And I somehow found a way to turn this into porn with a little plot.

The jukebox will need to be replaced. It’s cracked in three places and stuck on “What’s New Pussycat,” a fact that took them about twenty minutes to realize before Thresh tried smacking the thing around to get it to shut up – with no luck. He had to unplug it. The tinkling of broken glass being swept up provides a fitting accompaniment to the questioning as Darius flips open his tablet and levels Katniss with a serious look.

“Can you tell me how the fight started, Miss Everdeen?” She scowls at his use of a formal name for her, like he doesn’t spend every other Saturday in here, knocking back beers with his cop buddies, flirting shamelessly with her, and avoiding whatever fight he just had with Glimmer, his girlfriend.

That had been a specially unlucky statement, for it was probably exactly what Jeremy was thinking. Jeremy crossed his arms and shook his head.

“It’s exactly what I’m thinking, Michael!”

“We were just – ”

“Just what?” Jeremy interrupted him. “Come on, finish that sentence. I wanna hear it.”

Welcome, welcome back folks! With this post, my blog is finally ushered into the “modern age” (aka I’m finally posting a family I’ve played within the past few weeks instead of… eight months ago). 

This is the new house of the Thompson family. In an effort to get back into playing/posting since moving into my new apartment (which happened back in May lmao), I figured it’d be a good idea to start fresh and move them into a new house (well, new for them - this one’s been pre-built and landscaped and sitting in the hood for months). Not only that, but with Luna being a teen now (and Poe nearing teenagerdom… teenhood?), it seemed like a good idea to give them their own rooms instead of sharing the 3x3 spare bedroom in the duplex. :P 


Days 27, 28, 29 & 30 / 100 days of productivity

Sorry for my absence but the last couple of days were a bit crazy! Preparing for my last 2 finals (on thursday and friday) so a lot of work to do.

It will hopefully pay off. And in less then a week I’ll be on summer holidays YAY

I’ll still need to be productive ‘cause my trip to NYC is almost here and I have nothing planned. And after that I’ll also go for a 2 week summer program in Oxford University (my pre-course work list must be arriving anytime soon)

- Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.

anonymous asked:

Can I prompt you? The Hales must still be have friends or acquaintance in Beacon Hills. I would like to see Peter running in one or more of them - with or without Stiles at his side. Or if this isn't your cup of tea the same with Stiles but friends who aren't in the pack (pre-werewolf). thank you.

This one was so much fun! Ended up kind of fluffy, but I want Peter to have nice things. Thank you for your prompt!


It had taken a lot of money and time, but Peter finally had his life back. He’d had to use up a lot of his favors, but he was alive legally now—there was a paper trail and everything—and he no longer had to skulk around the town of Beacon Hills. It was nice, to be able to be himself again.

Peter hummed to himself, shopping at the local organic store and browsing the produce section. He’d spent too long in the hospital being fed whatever their pathetic slop of the day was, so he had a bit of a picky palette now.

My LA Reputation Secret Sessions Story :D

(i realize that this post is long so i decided to break it into fun little sections with names inspired by friends episodes :D )

The One Where Taylor Nation Attacked Me

On Thursday, October 19th I got the taylor nation dm :D The one that made my heart beat faster than ever. I stared at the blue little “new message” circle for what felt like hours (it was minutes, tops) and it had me crying and shaking at 10:24 am in my school’s dining plaza probably weirding out everyone around me. I was honestly minding my own business freaking out over the Gorgeous announcement when this happened. I could not believe it I couldn’t even breathe properly, but I opened the message and there it was, the all caps CONFIDENTIAL and everything.

The gag is, in the days before that moment i constantly shoved that thought in the back of my head because i didn’t want to be sad knowing that it would never happen to me. Yet even with it shoved in the back of my head I had such a feeling of hope. Sooo many people tried saying 1) taylor loves me 2) they think i’m gonna meet taylor this era or 3) they want me to meet taylor and as happy as that was for me it felt so :( bc it was such BLIND HOPE and i felt like it would honestly never happen for me. Ironically, i made so many tweets being sure that this would never happen to me, for example:

(the amount of old tweets or posts of mine where taylor proved me wrong and has made me look like boo boo the fool is hilarious)

but it wasn’t blind hope :D

Also, three hours before my taylornation message, I randomly tweeted “Don’t you see the starlight, starlight, don’t you dream impossible things!” which is….wild…like i can’t believe the universe works that way.

(point being i hope you guys who haven’t met taylor yet know you shouldn’t ever stop believing that this could happen for you. I know it feels like aimless dreams and impossible wishes but it definitely could happen for you, especially when your idol is trying just as hard to reach you.)

The One When It Was October  22nd

i have never felt so many emotions before in my life and i’m literally the most over emotional person in the world. my organs were flipping inside of me my heart was ready to jump out of my chest and there wasn’t enough air. it was such a feeling you guys. I was riding in my car with my parents where they would drop me off and i’d like to first of all thank the world that there is a 1989 secret sessions video out there so I could prove to my parents that this is a thing Taylor does and it wasn’t a scam and i wasn’t going to get kidnapped. My mom was legit scared to let me go and said “Lizbeth if you’re not back by 11 i’m gonna call the police” laasdkljakljs it was so funny (I got back at 11:17 she was scared but she obviously did not call the police she just waited outside the meetup with other worrisome/waiting parents) but anyway i checked in i met up with people and a lot of us knew NO ONe or just made friends with anyone we could find or some people did get to meet up with friends which was so nice …honestly everyone in that room was just very friendly and very happy for each other and just happy in general. We were all going through the same “i can’t believe this is real and it’s happening to me” thoughts. So we got loaded into the bus and everyone was chatting and excited and nervous and excited and happy and just in shock. 

The One Where I’m In Taylor Swift’s Home

holy fucking shit??!!?!?!?!?!?! it was soo beautiful and big and we stayed in the pool area and were greeted with refreshments and food/snacks that i was too nervous to eat (except 1 rep cookie). When we were called inside, the room was very cozy and warm and there were candles everywhere and blankets and pillows and i loved it it was very intimate. I was so excited for her to just pop up and she did, she came in from the back and we all started screaming :D you can hear people start to sniffle bc honestly most of us were just on/off crying the whole night. She was so cute she did a little happy dance holding her laptop and there was extra screaming when we saw Alana, Jack, Ruby Rose, etc it was just so surreal. You guys…taylor was there….. she was so close and this wasn’t some high quality video interview i was watching her from this was my own two eyes and she was right there. She greeted us and explained how it’s gonna go and told us how excited she was to be doing this for us. You guys she loves us so much, not just the 100 fans in that room but everyone of us on here. She wants to do this, she’s excited to do this. She is also the happiest I’ve ever seen her be. throughout the whole night I just got very emotional at how happy she was and how sure of herself she was and just how cute it was seeing her so :D. Honestly, the fact that I’ve always called her my best friend but this time in that room she was talking to us and sharing stories with us like we were best friends was….wow. I love her. We danced to LWYMMD and it was so fun and the entire room just radiated :D :D :D :D!!!! and everyone was having the time of their lives just dancing with her. She truly wanted everyone to have a good time and made sure everyone knew how happy she was to have you there. Many of us have eye-contact moments and it’s completely amazing to know. Like that’s just how much you can tell Taylor was really dedicated to making this night feel special for all of us. i love her idk if i’ve mentioned this, i love her. fun fact: i love her

The One When I Liztened To ‘reputation’

just kidding i have a few words that i can say :D !

It was so good. It was so so so good. My face went through every emoji possible the whole album through. Sonically and lyrically it stunned us all and it was so enjoyable and full of bops and classic Taylor Swift genius writing, but like on a whole other level of amazing. That’s all I’ll say :D (Also the pre-releases, as much as i love them and would die for them, aren’t the peak of the album trust me, there’s soooo much more)(y’all are gonna be so shook)(i still am)(im also so proud of her you can tell she’s proud of her work and she very much should be)

The One When The Night Was Flawless And It Finally Happened

I have loved Taylor for as long as I can remember. She’s my #1. She’s always been, like she’s genuinely my best friend. Her saying “you are the longest and best relationship that I have ever had” that one time at the 2013 BMA’s was the most validating thing. Because like…i know. She’s been there when I was sad and when I was happy and when I needed someone. I’ve loved and defended that woman to anyone for years and have dealt with sooo many teasings and “she doesn’t even know you”s. So the fact that this happened was…….. wow.

As I was getting closer and closer in line the butterflies (the beautiful kind) were going wild inside of me. I couldn’t believe it. I couldn’t believe i got to be here. I spent the last three days convinced i was gonna get a message that it was a mistake and she didn’t mean to invite me or it was gonna be cancelled or i couldn’t go or something because i was honestly so in denial. but it was almost my turn and the feeling when it’s hitting you that this moment you’ve wanted for so long is here is the most amazing and exhilarating feeling in the world. 

When it was my turn I walked up to her and was greeted with open arms and said “hi I’m liz” and she goes “Yeah i know you’re lizbeth right’ and i like gasped and was like “omg how did you know” and she’s like “yeah you’re lizbeth” :D :D :D :D (HER SAYING LIZBETH ACTUALLY MEANT SO MUCH TO ME I MADE A POST ABT IT) so i was like “taylor…i have to get this all out because if i don’t i’m gonna hate myself” and she laughed at me. queen of laughing. and then i just went for it and said “taylor, you’re my best friend.” and she said “aww” and I continued “like you are really my best friend. you’ve been there for me in my lowest moments and in my happiest moments. I love you so much. Like i literally sing with you in my car all the time and make sure it’s loud enough so it sounds like we’re singing together” and she laughed and went “oh my god i love that it’s like we’re duetting” and I’m like “yeah we are duetting taylor we honestly go off!!!” and then got serious again and told her about how there was an entire year period where I would cry myself to sleep every night listening to Safe & Sound because that year was so bad for me and it was so comforting to listen to. Then she gasped and said “oh my god” with the most concerned and loving look in her eyes. And i said thank you for everything and she grabbed my hands into hers and said “thank /you/ for everything i love that thank you” and then she went on about how happy she was that she was doing this and how she loved getting to do this for us and even with jack being there how nice it was for them to be seeing our reactions to the work they made. and she goes “and your reactions to eVERYTHING i love that” and i was like “oh my god taylor all those reactions were so genuine” “i know they were!” “because that album was just so so good it was so amazing i loved it so much!” and she said thank you :D 

when it was time for our picture she asked what kind of picture i wanted and i was like a hugging pic but for Reasons. and she looked at me like she was ready to #lizten which i appreciated. so i explained that there’s a picture of Taylena hugging at an awards show i couldn’t remember i probably looked sTUPID when she asked which one it was and i was like guh…idr…. but anyway i was like i wanna be on this side bc Selena was on that said and i was like “taylor i love you and Selena so much you have no idea I literally call myself taylena’s daughter and everyone agre-” and she cuts me off and goes “oh we would definitely adopt you we would totally adopt you she would want to adopt you i can confirm that she would want to adopt you”…. IF Y’ALL COULD SEE THE DUMB LOOK ON MY FACE…………. GUH….. every time i call taylena mom now it’s gonna be #legit ….wow….anyway i was shook. so we got into position i was like another reason i wanted to be on this side is because when I met her i was on this side of our pic too and she goes “oh i like that I love your attention to detail”…wow…..queen of compliments. and then we :D (((also quick mention that the fact that she has curly hair again also meant…a  lot to me..not that she doesn’t always look good in any hairstyle ever but i’ve just always been insecure about my curly hair and seeing that she’s embracing hers again makes me emo.))))

so i hugged her one last time and told her i loved her and she told me she loved me and i walked out of the room still looking at her, facing her as i walked backwards and she still looked at me and that was it…I got handed my reputation merch bag and couldn’t stop smiling on my way out. :D

I am so happy and so grateful for her and everything she’s done for me and I feel so blessed to have gotten to thank her for it all.

@taylornation​ thank you for all the work you did to help make this possible for all of us too.

@taylorswift I love you and I miss you already. i can’t wait to see our picture together. you are still my best friend and will always continue to be. i’ll also be sending you the adoption papers for you and Selena to sign soon. :D

After agreeing to put the past behind you for the sake of your unborn child, you and Tom had come to a decision about how co-parenting would work. He’d bought a house near to the one the two of you used to own, which you still lived in, and he’d been helping you decorate the nursery, attending pre-birthing classes with you, and buying endless amount of baby clothes, including a tiny Spider Man onesie which he just couldn’t resist. He was there for every doctor’s appointment, every scan and every check up, and if you were awake at 3am craving some sort of strange concoction of food, he’d be over to your house in minutes with whatever it was you desired. He’d been brilliant, you had to admit, and despite all of the bullshit the two of you had been through in recent times, you were actually starting to enjoy his company again.

When your waters broke late one Thursday night, Tom was over in a flash. You were overdue, and the two of you were desperate to meet your little one. Having agreed on a home birth, Tom phoned the midwife and began prepping the floor space of your living room.

Hours of agonising labour had passed, and the sun was rising once you were finally able to push. You gripped onto Tom’s hand tightly, exhausted from the long night.

“One more push, darlin’,” he encouraged. “You can do it, I know you can.” His voice was shaking as he struggled to hold back his tears. Tom hadn’t expected this to be the way the two of you would welcome your first child. It was bittersweet for him - of course he was excited to meet his child, but he couldn’t help feel guilty that he wouldn’t actually be here for his baby’s first night at home; that he wouldn’t be the father he always imagined he would be because he wouldn’t even be in the same house; that he wouldn’t be able to care for you like he had planned because he wouldn’t be here in the early hours of the morning to soothe your child and tell you to go back to sleep when your baby woke crying. He’d ruined everything, for himself and for you, and especially for your baby.

Crystal – A scene from my Legion story. 

Before the Arcan’dor we know came to exist, what if there were others? Failures that would never bear fruit, whose purposes were widely unknown?

I’m still working out the story of this one. Right now, have a nelf trapped in a crystal tree for 10k years because I think it’s cool. I worked on this thing forever, and finally finished. Every leaf was drawn by hand, no pre-made brushes. Sure wish I could have found some, though. -.-

 Curls of smoke rose into the air and disappeared into the atmosphere. Fourteen chairs were lined against the wall and wrappers littered the entirety of the room. Each chair was occupied by a warm body, except for two. A man with a fierce expression let out a breathy sigh before tossing his cigarette onto the dirty, cracked floor. 

 “Where is he? He said he would be here an hour ago, that fucking liar…”

 “Coups! Calm your tits, bro. He’s bringing the lady today, so he probably got caught in traffic from wherever she lives. Just lay off his case a bit.”

 When anybody decided to join the ruthless gang that simply went by ‘SEVENTEEN’, their name became a secret. They would choose a nickname to go by in case the cops ever caught up with them, though a few brave souls just went by their real ones. Each member never pried for the other’s real names, because the unspoken rule was always that ‘if what we’re doing is a secret, our identities should be too.’

The Darkness that is Nightmares

This is set pre-ACOWAR, the night after Hybern. Pure angst.

The first night was the worst.

It was well past midnight when I finally stumbled off to bed, after having stayed up for hours until receiving the news that Cassian and Azriel were in stable condition and would survive. Hearing it had taken a load off my chest, but my heart was still weighted down with emotion – with worry, with guilt, with fear. Mor forced me off to bed as she kept her vigil next to the Illyrians.

Opening up the door to our room, I still half expected to see her there, already asleep. But the bed was still empty, the room still save for the soft breeze coming in through a partially opened window. Exactly as we had left it this morning – one door of her wardrobe open, the bedsheets unmade. Only hours ago I had held her in my arms, had whispered into her ear, had watched her braid her hair in front of the mirror. I had felt many types of pain before, but none of them were quite like being separated from her - my moon and stars, my everything.

The pain I was feeling made me like I was being slashed at with an Illyrian blade from the inside, my ribcage falling apart as my heart was torn to ribbons. That prick had taken her, forced her back into a docile mask, because he believed he was entitled to her. Your fault. Your fault. Your fault. The mating bond sang to me, tugging and insisting in a voice I couldn’t block out. I should’ve been better prepared, had better shields up – there were a thousand things I could’ve done differently that could’ve changed the outcome of the day.

Peeling off my grime-crusted tunic, I climbed into bed, sent a wave of love to Feyre down the bond. Hours passed as I tossed and turned before falling into a fitful sleep.

I had only just fallen asleep when I heard her screams through the bond.
Sitting up faster than a shot, I could barely do anything, rendered with fear. I followed the bridge into her mind, where her mental walls were as light as paper and just as easy to get through. With horror, I watched the scene unfold from her eyes.  

Heavy chains kept her down if the wounds on her torn-apart back weren’t enough to do so. Still, she managed to prop herself up with her arms, refusing to crumple in front of the plain-faced guard that stood before her with an ash-tipped whip.

“What is Rhysand planning?” The guard asked tonelessly.

Feyre had long since given up the guise of innocence, and spat out breathlessly, “Why should I tell you?”

“Hybern has ears and eyes all over. We’ll find out whether you tell us or someone else does. But if you do, I’ve been given orders to spare your life.”

“By whom? Tamlin? An eternity with him would be worse than death.”

The guard raised his eyebrows. “You think someone as esteemed as Tamlin would let you back into his house, into his rooms? After you’ve been with Rhysand before you ever left Tamlin? He would never take someone like you back.” He let out a low laugh. “No, you’ll be sent off to Hybern. The treaty doesn’t allow human slaves – but it says nothing about fae ones.” The guard’s eyes glinted as he raised the whip again and I was cast out of her mind, thrown back down the bond.

Hot tears slid down my face, accompanied by boiling rage. Bile rose in my throat and I let loose a scream of anguish that no one would hear because she was trapped and she was the only light and without her I was alone who could love someone like this how could I pay for my sins how could I lead a court with out my mate, my mate, my -

My eyes flew open. I rushed for the toilet, where I heaved over the side for several minutes. Not real. Not real. Not real. I cast myself down the bond, repeating her name over and over, hoping for an answer. I had been trying for five minutes and was about to fly over to Spring in a panic to find her when I heard her sleepy voice.

“Rhys? What’s wrong?”

I could’ve wept with relief if I hadn’t been a sobbing mess already. “You’re okay.”
The pain must’ve shown in my voice because her next words were panicked.

“Cassian and Az? Has there been an attack? What’s going on?”

“Nothing, darling. Cass and Az will live.” I forced calm into my voice. “Just a bad dream, that’s all. I’m sorry for waking you.”

I could feel her sorrow, her love, through the bond. More powerful than any words. “You have nothing to apologize for. I love you.”

“I love you too.”

“I have to go now. I can’t risk being discovered.”

“I understand, darling. Goodnight.”

“Goodnight.” She closed off the bond, raising her iron mental shields. I fell into a fitful, dreamless sleep again for several hours, the remnants of the nightmare still with me.

Just a dream.

Just a dream.

Just a dream.
