i was waiting for an opportunity to post this

i just imagine a bunch of lonely straight boys refreshing their tumblr kik search waiting for literally anyone who might have boobs to just type the word in a post so they can jump on the opportunity to try and message them 

  • me: louis is so iconic.
  • someone: wait, what? we weren't even talking about --
  • me: i mean, even after being put in a band he still didn't have many opportunities to shine. his mic was turned down/off, he wasn't given hardly any solos on Up All Night OR Take Me Home, which were his bands /first two albums/. let that sink in!!!! and if he let that discourage him, he didn't let it keep him down, which is inspirational enough on it's own. but not only that, he's used every negative experience in his life as a stepping stone to become better and better (especially career-wise).
  • someone: how did you put the parentheses in a spoken conversation?
  • me: people said he couldn't be a solo artist because his voice was "weak" but Just Hold On depicts exactly the opposite; JHO is full of range and really emphasizes the vocal power i've always known he's possessed. you asked about his songwriting?
  • someone: no i didn't but
  • me: don't even get me started on his songwriting. louis is one of those people who writes to tell a story. he takes the listener from Point A to Point B; within three minutes and thirty seconds, he manages to weave songs of high points&low points, good&bad, and most of all, an overarching theme of hope. he sings of love in a way that sounds attainable for anyone, and maybe it is. louis's songwriting sounds like memories being made and summer days and
  • someone: are you crying? again? i'm pretty sure this has happened before
  • me, choking down my tears: no i'm not crying shut up i'm not finished... bc i mean. not only is louis Doing That(TM) in all of these other areas (and slaying, i might add), he's still so lovely and sweet. he's humble and thankful for everything he has and for all the people who have helped get him this far. i mean, i have never seen someone so appreciative of their fans. he doesn't have to support our fan projects but he does because he /cares/. he loves us even though he doesn't know us and what's important is that he knows how to make us feel loved
  • someone: *sigh*
  • me, crying openly: i wonder if he realizes just how much he's adored and how much people admire him. because for the past six years, he's had struggle after struggle thrown at him and he's faced it all with such dignity and grace. even if he's had bad moments and sad moments, he still manages to laugh and make other people laugh and i admire him so much.
  • someone: are you done
  • me: i'm never done talking about louis but for now, yes pls put on up all night and cry with me. we're on 1d discography lockdown lets go

Because you guys are awesome, I thought I’d give you this a little early. JACKSEPTICEYE CIVIL WAR VOICE-OVER!

Sorry that the quality’s a little shitty. I had to lower it to upload it to Tumblr. I would’ve posted the link to it on YouTube, but it got taken down :’(

If you want a (hopefully) better quality video, there’ll be a link to it on my channel in a couple days.

Jack, if you’re reading this, I really hope you liked it, and thank you for commenting on some of my other stuff. I’m not ashamed to say I started jumping up and down like a little girl for at least 2 minutes after reading what you had to say. You’re awesome, and I can’t wait for the opportunity to meet you and get one of those super-special Jacksepticeye hugs… one day :’)

Also, I know you answered my question before, but I would really, really love for you to play Spider-Man 2 on the channel.. or any Spider-Man game. They’re all awesome (aside form the last one… ugh)… Sorry if I seem a bit too ‘requesty’. I’ll enjoy your content with or without Spidey :)

Astraia Lavellan - Seven of Wands

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to commission @xfreischutz to make a card for my Inquisitor, Astraia Lavellan. The final result was more than worth the wait! Frei paid so much attention to details and had creative interpretations of my ideas, managing to take my massive amount of information about my character and distill it down into a wonderful image.

They were a pleasure to work with and I am so glad that I commissioned them. ♥

Azkaban is more than a prison.

Theo listens—watches, withers, waits—as the hastily reformed Wizenmagot sentences him to twenty-three months of incarceration with no opportunity for parole; and all he can suddenly think about is how the Malfoys are under house arrest, strolling through pleasantly fragrant rose gardens and drinking hundred year-old bottles of claret in their elegantly appointed drawing rooms and just—just biding their time, counting their gold and feigning their remorse and clawing their way back from the dead like the royal fucking parasites they’ve always been.

Theo, though—Theo is in chains.

He doesn’t speak as he’s led out of the courtroom. There’s nothing to say, not really. His parents are dead. Zabini had fucked off to France with his slinking, deadly snake of a mother. Theo had never had a lot of friends—had never particularly seen the point of making any—but there is, he imagines now, something uniquely terrible about being completely alone for this, the war-drum solemn moment his life is inextricably altered.

Ruined.

The tattoo they ink onto the inside of his left wrist—prisoner number 700, exactly—hurts less than he expects it to. He can almost feel the power of the runes seeping into skin, mucking about with the chemistry of his blood and his magic and his sense of self. Who he’s been, who he is, who he will be. It’s cruel, he decides. A punishment fit for a crime he’s still not entirely sure he’d even properly committed.

So I reached my first 1,000 followers over the weekend and I’m just super thrilled and flattered. I’ve never had 1,000 followers on any platform, so this is kind of amazing!  

I don’t even know what to do, but I feel like I should somehow celebrate: if you’re feeling it, send me one fact about yourself and a random prompt. I’ll respond with a fact about myself and a headcanon/ficlet 
**if you’re currently waiting for me to answer one of your asks, it’s coming, I promise! I had a paper to write this week!** 

And, because I have so many incredible followers, I want to use this as an opportunity to tell a bunch of people how much I love them and how they’ve made my first fandom experience just amazing.

warning: this is a long ass post filled with feelings.

What would you and EXO wear for Halloween?

This is going to be a couple post type thing, so I will post a cute GIF of the EXO member and the corresponding couple costume. If you have seen my EXO - Superhero Homecoming I won’t be putting Superman with Xiumin,  since I thought that would be to cheesy. Most of this is cheesy but that ain’t the point.


Xiumin – Clown

I hope you all enjoyed this, I am a super fan of Halloween. Last night (the 30th) I was a very dead skeleton and tonight (31st) I am Totoro, sadly I didn’t have any pictures of my skeleton.

NONE OF THESE GIFS OR PHOTOS ARE MINE. 

Ayyy I haven’t posted anything here in a while! I can’t post the whole thing yet, but here’s a closeup of Space Dad’s face. I had the opportunity to do the cover for the @voltroncalendar2017 and I had so much fun with it.

Needless to say, I hit a huge art block after November 8th.I’m pretty sure this got me out of it and I am so grateful.

I can’t wait to see what everyone else did!!

Speedy Shepard 2.0

Less speed. Less Shepard in the end.

Since many of us are waiting with bated breath for Mass Effect: Cassiopeia to unlock, I thought it was an opportune time to document the silly thing I did in January. Namely, load up Speedy’s save from just after the derelict Reaper and aim for two goals:

  1. Take Legion on nearly every mission it’s possible to take Legion on;
  2. Recruit everyone, attempt almost every loyalty mission, and still manage to get Shepard & company thoroughly killed.

Short version: MIssion Accomplished!

Longer version:

The breastplate of St. Patrick of Ireland

I bind to myself today
The strong power of the invocation of the Trinity:
I confess the Trinity in the unity,
The Creator of the creation.

I bind to myself today forever
The power of the incarnation of Christ with his baptism,
The power of his crucifixion with his burial,
The power of his resurrection with his ascension,
The power of his coming on the Judgement Day.

I bind to myself today
The power of the cherubim’s love,
The obedience of angels,
The hope of resurrection unto reward,
The prayers of patriarchs,
The prophecies of prophets,
The preaching of apostles,
The faith of confessors,
The purity of holy virgins,
The deeds of righteous men.

I bind to myself today
The power of heaven, 
The light of the sun,
The brightness of the moon,
The splendour of fire,
The flashing of lightning,
The swiftness of wind,
The depth of sea,
The stability of earth,
The compactness of rocks.

I bind to myself today
God’s power to guide me,
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to teach me,
God’s eve to watch over me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to give me speech,
God’s hand to guide me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to shelter me,
God’s host to secure me,

From the snares of demons,
From the seduction of vices,
From the lusts of nature,
From everyone who meditates injury to me, Afar or near, alone or with many.

I invoke today all these powers
Against every hostile and merciless power
Which may assail my body and my soul,
Against the reports of false prophets,
Against the blind laws of foolish men,
Against false teaching of heresy,
Against the deceits of idolatry,
Against the spells of the jealous,
Against the crafts of the sorcerors,
Against every knowledge that binds the soul of man.

Christ, protect me today
Against every poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against the death-wound,
That I may receive an abundant reward

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ within me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.

I bind to myself today
The strong power of the invocation of the Trinity:
I confess the Trinity in the unity,
The Creator of the creation.
