I’m feeling physically better, but not mentally, but other than that, I’m good to draw

So here is Ink……. cember Day 17, Battle
Since Sun & Moon came out, I decided to draw them in a Pokemon battle rather than the war, because it’s expected and sad lol
I also didn’t draw any Alolan Pokemon bc that’d be spoilers for you & me lmao

First time drawing Florges and Raichu(took me a lot of tries) and it looks fairly good. (・ิω・ิ)

Mark-Paul Gosselaar about Kylie Bunbury:

I met Kylie Bunbury when I tested for the role of Mike Lawson in “Pitch.” She had been cast earlier and came in to do a chemistry read for me. I knew she was pitching and training for the role, so I was a little intimidated by her. The scene we were working on was from the pilot when Lawson smacks her character, Ginny Baker, on the butt.

I asked her, “Is it OK if I actually hit you in the bum?”

She answered, “Yes, as long as I get to do it to you.”

After meeting and acting the scene with her, I thought she was amazing. I believed her as the character. She just has the presence of Ginny Baker. I’m so amazed at how effortless she makes it look. There are very few scenes where Ginny is not feeling something. Her acting is flawless, and her work ethic is something I wish more people had.

Every moment that Kylie is awake, that I see, she is working on this show. If she has a 15-minute window, she’s working with Gregg Olson, her pitching coach. She hadn’t touched a baseball until last November and she has velocity on the ball.

There are so many parallels between Kylie and her character. Kylie is a relative unknown, and after she gets this role is thrust into the spotlight. She juggles work, training, her diet, family, friends and the press, just like Ginny Baker. She has such poise and maturity.

“Pitch” is a great story for girls and women, and I think it is equally important for boys and men. I have four children, two boys and two girls. I don’t want my girls to feel like they have limits because of their gender, but I also don’t want my boys to put limits on my girls. When my boys watch “Pitch,” I want them to know their sisters can do everything they can, and probably better in certain aspects.

Kylie is one of the nicest people. She’s got this goofy side to her and is a goober sometimes, which just endears her to people even more. She’s a big goonie.

At the end of the third episode, my character says to hers, “You blow me away, Baker.” And Kylie does all the time.

You blow me away, Bunbury.

Raphael is still such a softie though, like he could have thrown Simon into a wall and instead he “gently” shoves him and holds onto his shoulder and stares into his eyes and speaks with a low voice instead of shouting

I don’t understand where this fandom mentality comes from that everyone has to like all the characters within a book/series/movie? And people start fighting you if you don’t like one character to the same extent as they do?

Like, be happy that people enjoy their favourite character (or ship). That they are so inspired by them that they write fanfic, draw fanart or develop headcanons for them. They share their love and you can do the same with your favourite characters - that’s the point of fandom.

But attacking other fans because they don’t include every single character for reasons that they are entirely their own? It doesn’t matter if you agree or not. Everyone has preferences and they are allowed to have them.

Seriously, since “Winter” was released, this fandom has become a minefield.
And I don’t mean that the character of Winter changed it, but it’s the tone of the discussions. It’s not so much about respectful, informative discussions anymore. It’s gotten nasty with a few people insulting and bullying other fans for their preferences with a self-righteousness that is seriously uncalled for.

Because now, if you don’t include a certain character, you are called out for whatever inane reason. I once got the question once why I didn’t include a certain ship for a story idea I had. Why is that any of their concern? It’s my story idea, either you like it or not but I’m not playing character bingo and include everyone just because the fandom thinks I have to because they are in the original story. That’s what fanfic is for, to expand on the characters you love, maybe all of them or just one of them, but that isn’t anyone’s business. If I see a story tagged with Character X, I’m not asking the author, “hey, where’s Character Y?” That story isn’t for me, so I move on to stories that are.

Because here’s the thing: No one owes you anything.

No one has to write a fic you enjoy.

No one has to draw a fanart that you can reblog.

No one has to spend their time of the day on characters they don’t like just because they feel pressured to do so.

But: Everyone deserves respect. Or, at least, just because someone has a different opinion, it doesn’t give you the right to insult them. Opinions are not facts.

You don’t have to agree with someone but it’s not too much to ask to treat them with a minimum of respect. Especially over something as personal and random as favourite characters/ships.

For next year, I do hope we leave this kind of mentality behind us, so people can resume creating content they enjoy for people who appreciate it, without being attacked for not doing it as some people might see fit. I’m not naive, I know there will always be drama and shipper wars or whatever. But this year, it was no fun being in the TLC fandom. And I say this especially in regard to the TLC shipweeks.

The creators of shipweeks are putting a lot of effort into it. The fans are putting a lot of effort into their work, too. So, if you are not happy that your character/ship/brotp isn’t as included as much as you would like, create your own content. Spread the love. But respect other people’s choices.

And for every other fan: Just have lots of fun with TLC, with your favourite characters and ships and don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t allowed to.

Bucky has been standing in front of his bed, staring at the wrapped parcel for nearly ten minutes, as if his quiet presence would intimidate it into revealing what it is, why it’s there, and most importantly: who put it there. Deliveries are usually left at the private access on the first floor, or taken up to the common area for the Avengers to pick up. Their rooms were supposed to be secure, only accessible to the tenant. His first instinct was to check the door for signs of a break-in, but found the locking mechanism to be untouched, the keypad outside his door in pristine condition.

(In which Reyna has no idea that she could possibly be gay, and takes a while to figure it out)

  • Every time the hunters stay at Camp Jupiter, Thalia always insists on training with Reyna
  • Reyna is usually cool-headed and collected but always gets really flustered around her
  • The other hunters always wink at Thalia and give her a nudge and Reyna can’t help but feel like they’re talking about her
  • Thalia constantly flirts with her and finds it adorable how oblivious Reyna is
  • Every time Reyna needs to make an announcement to the whole camp, she has to avoid looking at Thalia in the crowd or she forgets what she’s saying
  • She tries talking to Jason about it and it’s awkward
  • ‘Why is your sister so..I don’t know. Intimidating? But, like, in a good way…’
  • Jason goes kind of pale and pretends he needs to ‘talk to Piper about something really important’ because he can’t breathe from holding back laughter
  • Reyna going to literally everyone and asking them about Thalia because seriously, does no one else get this really weird feeling when they’re around her?
  • Everybody except Reyna knows that she totally has a crush on Thalia
  • ‘Just let her figure it out in her own time, okay?’
  • Eventually Nico sits her down and is like….look…
  • Reyna has training with Thalia the next day and can’t even look at her without melting from embarrassment
  • Oh my gods was it really that obvious?’
  • She tries to admit her feelings to Thalia and expects her to be really grossed out or disturbed but she just smirks and says ‘well it took you long enough’ before pulling her in closer and kissing her.

Oh my wyrd! I have 600+ followers! Thats insane! Thank you so much! 

Here some Elorcan for you. I had a picture in my head of Elide squishing the cheeks of the “oh so intimidating” Lorcan. I love them so much. I literally ship them so hard it hurts. 

my favourite thing abt yuri on ice is that this boy grew up with posters of this guy on his walls. he had a framed photo of him. he named his fuckign dog after him. can u imagine if present yuri told younger yuri that he’d show up at his house naked and eventually they’d kiss. can u imagine

Guide to TV Tropes, Part 1: Tropes are Not Bad

Pylon @constablewrites here! You may know me as the one who likes sending people to TV Tropes. The site is a fantastic resource and can really help writers develop their understanding of story–but it can also be intimidating and frankly dangerous. So I’m here to share some wisdom not just about the site, but about the idea of tropes in the first place.

What is a trope?

Let’s start by defining terms here. For our purposes, a trope is a specific storytelling element that is recognizable in multiple works. The concept of having characters, of stories having acts like plays, of multiple plotlines, all those basic, fundamental concepts are technically tropes.

This is a very broad definition, but that’s on purpose. It’s difficult to discuss something that doesn’t have a name, so that’s what tropes are: a way to give names to those concepts and elements we recognize so we can talk about them, and so that we can be clear that we’re talking about the same thing.

But people talk about tropes like they’re a bad thing.

When someone uses “trope” in a pejorative way, they’re usually talking about a trope that is deployed uncritically, without new context. Tropes can very easily become cliches when they get regurgitated wholesale, but that does not make a trope inherently bad, and that doesn’t mean that new life can’t be breathed into tired tropes.

So why is it important to know tropes?

Essentially, it’s hard to break the rules effectively if you don’t know what they are. Media doesn’t exist in a vacuum; your story is in conversation with everything that came before and everything that will come after. You know that guy who tries to hide that he came to class late, until he smugly makes a point that was already thoroughly discussed 20 minutes ago? Don’t be that guy. (Want to know how many people are out there hawking Hunger Games clones who genuinely have no idea that franchise exists? It’s a much higher number than you just thought of, I promise you.)

What about originality? If it’s been done before it’s not original!

Think of tropes like Lego bricks. It’s not about what bits you have, it’s about how you put them together. That’s how you can take most of the same pieces from this:

…and end up with this:

Take a bunch of spy tropes that have been overused to the point of parody and give them to superheroes, and you have something that feels fresh. A stock character that’s usually male might look very different as a female, even if they otherwise fulfill the same role. Throwing film noir and detective tropes into a setting with magic and monsters invented a whole new genre. And so on. You don’t have to reinvent or twist every element to have something new; you can get just as much mileage out of turning a single trope on its head and thoroughly exploring the implications of that.

Ultimately, you can’t mess with audience expectations if you don’t know what they are. That one death in Avengers: Age of Ultron completely shocked me because the movie is screaming at the top of its lungs that it’s gonna kill a different character. (Worth noting is that I saw it with a friend who didn’t pick up on those cues at all, and thus had a completely different reaction. Knowing those expectations can cut both ways.) Tropes represent the shared language of storytelling that your readers have learned, consciously and subconsciously, and are bringing to the table. You need to understand that language if you want to speak to them effectively.

Hopefully now you understand why it might be beneficial to spend some time on TV Tropes. But don’t dive in just yet! Otherwise you’ll emerge blinking into the light a week later, muttering about egregious sliding scales and realizing that no one’s been feeding your cat and you probably don’t have a job anymore. Tune in next time where we’ll discuss how to use the site effectively and avoid the black hole.
