No one would have ever imagined that hardcore badass Jeon Jungkook, the most well-known tattoo artist in the town, the guy who dropped out to follow his passion, was best friends with beautiful, sweet, top-scoring university student, Y/N.
Physically, they seemed to be polar opposites. He had dragons inked onto his skin, three piercings on his left ear and two on his right, and always wore black; whilst you were a bright, clean slate – but you knew that was what he loved about you.
digital drawing of alec lightwood and magnus bane in 206 “iron sisters” I don’t draw freehand much, because I feel like I’m not as good as so many others but I saw this sneak peek and I was inspired. this was drawn freehand in photoshop *which was a bitch because I don’t have a drawing tablet anymore, so I had to do it with my laptops trackpad. I decided to share it with you guys, please don’t judge too harshly, I haven’t drawn anything in YEARS! and apologies for the lack of background, I know it’s boring boo!
it’s taken me a long to find the strength to share this traumatic experience with you all… but in light of current events, i feel obligated to do so.
this is the story of how a kylo stan attacked me.
it was a normal tuesday in september- it was a new school year, rife with opportunity, and i was just getting used to my new classes and schedule when the incident occurred.
i was in my 7th period ap literature and composition class, my last class of the day, working dilligently on analyzing poetry for my project. i needed to google something about t.s. eliot, so i grabbed my phone.
little did i know i was about to make a choice that would change my life.
the girl sitting beside me happened to glance at my home screen’s wallpaper as i went to google whether or not t.s. eliot was gay (note that my wallpaper is a cropped photo of tom holland and john boyega from when they met at d23 this past summer).
noticing that i had left the photo as it was rather than photoshopping adam driver in beside tom, the girl suddenly grabbed my wrist, forcing me to look up and away from my google search. now, i’m used to encountering racist star wars fans both on and off the internet, so i was more than ready to oppress another reylo if it came to that.
“can i help you??” i asked, loudly enough that several of my classmates looked up.
the girl’s eyes bored into mine as she hissed, “are you a fucking finn stan?”
dead silence fell over the classroom. i bravely met her gaze before saying, “yes i am. and kyle ron is an ugly looking motherfucker.”
it was at that moment that i sealed my fate. the girl absolutely lost it, jumping out of her seat and screaming at me.
“YOU FUCKING ANTI!!! BEN SOLO IS 100000X BETTER THAN FINN, HE WAS ABUSED BY HIS PARENTS AND COMMITED GENOCIDE AS A COPING MECHANISM!! AND ADAM DRIVER IS BEAUTIFUL, HE FOUGHT TO PROTECT OUR COUNTRY FROM TERRORISTS LIKE FINN SO SHUT THE FUCK UP-”
my classmates looked on in horror. as this kylo stan paused for a breath, my teacher calmly rose from her seat, holding her stormtropper coffee mug (note that my teacher is a professed star wars fanatic, but never positioned herself on this discourse. until now.)
i thought for sure i was doomed. this was it- i was finally going to be schooled by a high school senior who would convince me and all my classmates that kylo was superior to finn through cognitive dissonance and false literary analogies…
but what happened instead shocked me.
my teacher met both of our gazes before calmly addressing the kylo stan-
“kylo ren is a deeply flawed individual who has commited numerous war crimes and has played an active role in a fascist regime’s acts of genocide and imperialism. finn, on the other hand, is a victim of this fascist machine and, despite being raised to be a mindless killer, is so pure of heart that he is able to understand that the first order is morally wrong and actively fights against them despite the horrific abuse he underwent at their hands.”
“furthermore, i DO have an english major and i can tell you that your kyle/reylo stanning theories are bullshit lmao.”
my class erupted into cheers. they gathered around me, lifting me on their shoulders while the kylo stan was trampled beneath their feet.
later that night, i got a call from lucasfilm that they heard about what happened with the kylo stan and wanted my input on how tlj should go.
in conclusion, i not only successfully got all the finn stans in my school to oppress the kylo stans, but i also erased kylo from the star wars film francise entirely and made finn a jedi.
moral of the story? don’t mess with us antis sweaties 😙✌
So I was bored and decided to make a music video for a friend in three weeks to learn animation on photoshop. (Shoutout to Alex Grigg btw he’s a good human) It was the worst idea ever but I had so much fun I thought I was Diana Ross. I opted for some bad lo-fi vapowave Dragon Ball knock off aesthetic so I could pleasure myself with some real corny animation!
More coming soon with more stuff on top of that baby
the prompt: I would like to request/suggest two song based scenarios, the 1st one based on “I just wanna make love to you” with Taeyong.
category: fluffy fluff
author note: i realize the chorus is kinda angst so i cut the entire chorus bc i wanted to write a husband!taeyong fluff. also i’m a pure bean so there is no love making in this. rather, it’s about the little things that make love so attractive to us :)
So, I thought my friend, Xane, would look like a really great Moana, and after some convincing, I finally got her to go out in cosplay! She literally watched the entire movie in cosplay! except for the skirt, of course.
The costume is made by me, and the pictures were also taken by me. Since the costume was based more so off of my own measurements rather than hers, and I’m a few inches taller, the costume was a little longer than it should have been. But even so, our local Hot Topic thought it was good enough to be posted on Instagram!
So because this is free day,i’m posting something a bit different :) This is my University project. It was simple: make a magazine about theme of our choosing. I chose Fallout. My idea was to create a semi-encyclopedia magazine about how Fallout was made, all of developers struggles, all games etc. I wanted to do more details: characters, factions etc. But i run out of time coz i had a crazy semester. I kinda proud of what i made in the end :) Its hella minimalistic! I LOVE minimalism. It’s not perfect, of course, but still. Sorry for idiotic photos — I only have 50mm lens on my DSLR camera and it’s not good for anything that is not a portrait.😅 Made in Adobe inDesign, Ilustrator and Photoshop. Big thanks to @seethedivide for Fallout Week. It was a good challenge for myself after boring assignments at University✨
Let’s talk about Nick Miller. Let’s talk about him and Jess and this new way I’ve been thinking about their breakup, realizing the genius, twisted irony of it.
While I was writing about broken-up Nick and Jess last week, I spent a lot of time thinking about the two sides of their relationship: the things that work and the things that don’t and why.
The Mars Landing fight focused on both the past (their relationship so far, arguing all the time, biting things back) and the future, ostensibly about their attitudes toward planning, their worldviews and belief systems. But there’s another hugely important unspoken layer to that conversation.
When Jess was asking if he imagined a kid they’d have together, talking about a house by the lake and Christmas morning, she was at the same time saying: I’m ready for this; I’m ready for this with you. Or at least ready to let you know that someday I will be. A future where things are a lot more grown-up; a post-loft world where they’re still together.
And poor Nick Miller, so afraid he’d screw it up from day one, missed the ball coming across the plate. Didn’t even realize he was up at bat.
She was saying: I think all the time about spending my whole life with you. (Even if some of that thinking is with trepidation.) And he was so afraid of rocking the boat of the universe, afraid of taking a different approach to life and thinking about the future, believing things maybe *will* work out, even if you have to force yourself out of your comfort zone and into something like adulthood — that he said no. He backed down. He derailed. He said, without realizing he was saying it: I won’t imagine with you a real future where we’re together. Because he doesn’t believe in a world where things work out that way. Doesn’t really dare to let himself hope beyond what he has now. Messed up from Caroline and Julia and his family and always always from Walt.
The way his face fell on the roof in Winston’s Birthday when he thought she was slipping away before he even really had her. The way he forced her to admit she worried he was too messed up, at Cece’s wedding, and then turned tail when faced with things being that real, that potential bad. Called the whole thing off. So afraid of how he was going to mess things up. How bad it was going to hurt.
“I realized something … I’d do anything for ya’, Jess,” he tells her in the bank. But what he has to do now is even bigger and scarier: he has to do something for himself and for both of them. It’s being able to say: yes, I see a future with you — which means being brave enough to imagine a future where life is good; where things are okay for ol’ lemonade-into-lemons Nick Miller. I think that’s the long game for him.
He’s a little broken: that’s what he said when he told her people don’t change. He didn’t think his dad would; he doesn’t think he can.
Here’s what I want to give Nick: a year like Pam Beesly’s season 3. Being forced to change and forcing herself. Signing up for art classes and living alone and running across coals and saying what she means, brave, in front of everyone. Watch out world, old Pammy is getting what she wants.
I want fancy new Miller like we got fancy new Beesly. Not some unrecognizable guy in a scarf and Brylcreamed hair; Pam didn’t turn into Karen or Jan, after all. I want a Nick who’s *himself*, but who’s figured out that he can fight his way forward, through the hedgemaze of insecurity, away from the world that’s pessimistic but safe — and who’s realizing he can be happier for it.
I doubt that’s what we’ll get this season, really, but I think it’s coming. Maybe in season 5?
But I want to see the look on his face when he realizes: this girl he loves, this girl who’s changed every part of his life, she was telling him, in her own roundabout and mixed up way, that he was it for her. Wanted to have kids and a house and the whole daydreamed expanse of the future *together*. Wanted to marry him.
I want him to realize that and then figure out he can make that happen. She’s the kind of girl a guy would come back for.
And finally, the First Place Winner is Lapis Lazuli, requested by blueberry32!!!
I’ll admit it, I haven’t watched Steven Universe, but I’ve wanted an excuse to draw her for a while. I just really like her design and her colors, and wanted to try drawing her in my style. (I like blue, can’t you tell?) I know almost nothing about this character, other than through a few clips and pieces of information I’ve run into, so I apologize to the fans if something is inaccurate. I was going for the Kingdom Hearts Opening feel and some Deep Sea Girl (song, music video, look it up now.) The background was boring though, so I turned it into Deep Space Girl to fit the backstory that I already knew for this character. I was trying to make the scene as ambiguous as possible, like she’s dreaming and wishing on a shooting star. (Insert “A Fragmentary Passage.”) I also had fun adding water effects too, turns out you don’t need photoshop!! If Space was an ocean…
For anyone who’s feeling salty that their entry wasn’t picked, I judged the requests solely on what I wanted to draw the most, and how I wanted to draw it. There will be another contest when I hit 500 Spectators! (hopefully.)
And to anyone who actually read everything above, say “Aha!“ in the comment section down below to let me know! XD (I sort of tend to doubt it sometimes)
