As a bit of an enthusiast when it comes to historical fashion it annoys me they tried to "modernize" it. Like the original dress wasn't period-accurate either, but it DID have a basis in history (albeit the wrong period), whereas the new dress doesn't seem to have any respect to history
i feel you, but if they had ditched the historical accuracy for a good looking dress, i would let it slide. like, i can’t speak for historical accuracy on cinderella’s dress, but just look at this
it really looks like a magical dress. like a big, fluffy, beautiful blue cloud of a dress. just looking at it makes me want to reach out and feel it’s texture. the only downside is the too tight corset, imo, but just loose it up a bit, let the poor girl fucking breathe, and you have a simple, yet regal and dreamy dress. a++
now compare it to this and just
what is this stiff, piss-colored thing. what the hell. it looks as sad as i feel while seeing it.
actually, for better accuracy, just take these two similar shots of the princesses wearing their respective gowns:
really, in my opinion, there’s no competition. this dress is lazy and boring. step up your game once more, disney.
Now this person answered this under this post and I’m curious about what they meant to be perfectly honest because I feel like they don’t understand the situation as we see it - as we’ve been seeing it since, haha, forever actually. Visibly they don’t understand why we, Jin Stans, are complaining about the lack of attention Jin gets (don’t hesitate to correct me if I’m wrong, really I’m curious about how these guys think).
Well let me tell you guys how I think about all of this. Seokjin is a beautiful, hard working, talented human being. He’s the visual of the group and has a very beautiful voice - he made me cry a lot with Awake, Eomma and I Love You. Yet he’s being slept on so fucking bad??? In almost every single song he has like, barely 3 lines. I could understand that back in the days when they were singing true, hard hip hop because his voice wasn’t really made for this type of songs but now? He could get so much more than what he has.
And now what do we see in Not Today? Well, haha, nothing actually. The boy has 1 second of screen time (best 1 second of my life) and he’s supposed to be their freaking visual remember? He also sings for 4 second in a 4 minute long song which is, hahaha, a ridiculously short amount of time??
And now the worst thing is : no one reacts? Literally last week the entire fandom imploded because Hobi got no lines in Spring Days (friendly reminders that the entire album is about him with the Outro, the Interlude, his gorgeous solo and BS&T so they don’t really get the right to complain) but when Jin’s left out “It’s okay guys, it’s just Jin so no one gives a shit” how in Hell is that fair? We see this situation negatively and we have the right to do so because Jin is a member of BTS, not a fucking back-up singer/dancer!
You see, this kind of person is the reason why the situation hasn’t changed over the past few years. These guys refuse to acknowledge how unfair bighit is to Jin, how talented this beautiful boy is, so nothing changes. And I’m pissed, and salty, and bitter about it because I’d like to see my bias more in MVs and I’d like to listen to his voice too! Because he worked his ass off to have such a pure and stable voice, so he deserves to be heard!
So there you have it. I could go like that for days but you probably stopped reading this a while ago, so I’ll shut up now and go reblog for the 100th time these 4 very short gifs we have of him from the Not Today MV. Have a good one.
During Edward’s first visit to Central after he and Winry announce their engagement, he makes an offhanded comment about not knowing how to dance. And Roy overhears him and offers to teach him. Edward is skeptical, but after Roy insists that Winry will appreciate it, he begrudgingly caves. But, the one caveat Roy has is that it has to be after hours, preferably an hour or so after everyone goes home.
Edward thinks to question it, but instead figures that it’s Mustang who sometimes appears to have no rhyme or reason for how he does things until the last moment, he’ll just suck it up and go along with it.
And if worse comes to worse and Mustang disappoints him (what he’s banking on, in fact), he’ll badger him until he gets a drink for having to put up with him.
So he goes to Central Command around 7pm and finds Roy… and Riza. The perplexed expression on his face is enough for Roy to right away explain that it’s better to learn from watching first before trying, and that the Lieutenant graciously offered to help him. And that’s when Edward realizes why he had to meet him so late that night.
Edward again is skeptical because the Lieutenant never seemed to be the type to dance, but for her sake and Winry’s, he would go through with it.
Roy moves the needle to the record that’s on the phonograph he stole from Fuery’s supply room to start the music, gets into position with Riza
I've been trying to write the plot for characters I've developed for months and I can never come up with a good enough conflict. I can develop characters for days but once it comes to writing conflict I'm at a complete loss. Nothing ever seems good enough or interesting enough. The story is supposed to have a dark undertone and takes place near the sea in the 20's. I'm at a loss after that...
Characters Without Conflict
Before we talk about conflicts, make sure that you’re judging what’s good enough and interest enough on the right scale. Your scale. You might be afraid that no one will like it because it’s been done, or because no one is reading stuff like this, or because it doesn’t feel like enough action. But whether or not something is good enough starts with you.
The first thing you need to do is gain some confidence. Take a look @maxkirin‘s story idea test. Once you accept the truth of this post, you’ll feel a lot better. But now, onto adding conflict when all you’ve got is characters.
1) Character Drama
Examine the relationships between your characters and find things for them to fight about. The way they’re each living their lives, or a crucial decision that needs to be made, an unforgivable act that one of them committed, a secret that was kept. Find sources of drama between the two of them. It may be that whatever you come up with is enough to drive an entire story.
2) The Dead Body Trick
This is going to sound cliche, but the dead body trick works well. Have your characters stumble onto a body or witness something being murdered. Then imagine the possibilities of what comes after. Do they become suspects in the murder when they discover the body? Are they threatened by the murderer when their presence is discovered? Are they more tied to the murder than it seems on the surface?
The dead body trick need not apply only to strangers either. Have one of your characters going through a recent loss of someone, and write how the person died to help inspire you to tell the story.
You can also apply this trick to one of your existing characters. Choose someone from your cast and say “This person is going to die at the end of the story.” Now you work backwards to determine why and how that’s going to happen. You’re forced to develop a conflict that results in this outcome.
3) Use Your Setting
In the case of this anon, setting can help you develop conflict. If the story takes place in a specific time period and location, there will likely be historical and regional events that can create conflict surrounding your characters. If we’re talking the 1920s in America, you’ve got prohibition that immediately creates conflict as people choose sides. If the story takes place near waterways, you’ve got potential issues of storms, tourism, merchant and commercial importing/exporting, fishermen trade and their agreements with local restaurants and seafood shops. Look at the issues facing the people in your time period/setting and see how your characters fit into those issues. What roles do they play? What problems will they face in these roles?
4) Start With Just One Problem
Don’t try to overwhelm yourself by thinking of a half a dozen plot arcs to keep the story moving. Start with just one, and follow it through to conclusion.When you’ve identified one problem, keep asking yourself A) How can it get worse and B) What will my character do about it? Both of these questions will help you move to the next part of the story. When you have a complete narrative arc surrounding one problem, it’ll be easier to think about things like subplots and how to add complexity to the story overall.
These are just some ideas to get you going. Keep brainstorming and thinking. Be patient with yourself through this process. It can take months before you find that magical “Aha!” revelation where everything in your story just falls into place.
Bruh, lemme just say for your art, you're improving like a /shit ton/, especially since I first saw it...uh...4 years ago I think?(Oh my God we've known each other four years that's bizarre.) Like even ignoring everything else, I'd say that's fucking awesome. And yeah, you may have miles to go still. Or not. But that only gives you more of an excuse to draw whenever the fancy strikes you.
Holy Moley we have. dang. And you’re right, over the years I have improved. Thank you hun.
(unless you’re doing the bonus day, which i unfortunately can’t as i don’t have any wips close enough to being post-ready!)
let’s give a big hand to the @brotzlyweek mods for setting all this up, eh??? Nice one guys! I always love seeing content explosions and it was hella fun to contribute!
and hats off to everyone who wrote, drew, edited etc, it’s been amazing seeing what everyone’s come up with! extra EXTRA hats off if you’ve been doing it alongside other work/life/school/big bang commitments, too! (and yes, i am including myself in that because dammit i’ve worked hard and i deserve a pat on the back fight me)
i wrote a ficlet for every day which were actually all part of the same universe (EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED, Y’ALL). The series in the order that it was posted is right here on Ao3, but if you wanna read the stories in CHRONOLOGICAL order (i.e. the order they actually take place within the universe) it’s something like:
personally i think both reading orders have their merits, so take your pick- or do both, if you think any of these are worth a second read! XD huge HUGE thanks to everyone who’s read, reblogged, commented etc- you’re all fricken swell and you’ve made this one heck of a fun week! I’m glad we could all come together and celebrate this wonderful pairing together! ^_^
Yeah yknow we have seen espers storing energy. Maybe mob has just a ton of it he's been storing unintentionally through suppressing, so much that it's basically it's own entity now
yep exactly! you guys really are on the same page with each other! i could see that happening, especially with shigeo seeing how he has a lot of pent up emotions. i guess what ???% could literally be the outlet for all of those emotions and built up energy that shigeo wasn’t able to express and get rid of.
also my first anon that talked about this with me pointed out that ???% doesn’t appear with anyone else which is very interesting. does that mean that those other espers are able to express their feelings/emotions and manage their energy in a healthy way? or is it that ???% only shows up with shigeo because he’s the strongest of the bunch and his emotions are more heightened and easily uncontrollable? everyone has pent up emotions and some can’t even cope with them, so why shigeo?
Note: Not requested, but this came about because I went to the pool today and then went straight to work and I felt that sleepy feeling you get after spending time in the sun. Its a special and specific kind of sleepy. I don’t know how else to describe it, but it’s nice. It made me want to take a nap with Shawn.
The cool air of your hotel room hits you as soon as you
swing open the door. You had turned the air conditioner on high before you left
because you knew it would be hot outside, but a shiver runs down your spine as the
blast of cool air hits you without warning. You head straight for your bathroom to
take a shower, dropping your wet towel on the bathroom floor before removing
your black bikini and getting under the warm stream of water.
When you get out of the shower, you feel exhaustion hit you.
You had just spent the last four hours lounging by the pool, and the sun takes
a lot out of you. It’s one in the afternoon, a perfect time for a nap. There is
something about afternoon naps after mornings spent in the sun. They’re
magical, and they have a certain feel to them.
Exiting the bathroom, you hear the television on in the
hotel room, and a smile spreads across your face knowing that your boyfriend
has returned. He was gone doing press all morning. You offered to go with him,
but he insisted you stay back and enjoy the resort. You were in Florida after
Shawn is seated at the edge of the bed, watching the hockey
game on the tv. When he sees you, he smiles and says “Hey baby,”
“Hey hun, how was work?” You question as you crawl onto the bed behind
him, which immediately prompts him to move so he’s lying next to you.
“Good, nothing special.” You cuddle
closer into his side as his arm automatically wraps around you, and he asks,
“You tired?” To which you only sleepily nod in response. “Didn’t you just sit
at the pool all morning?” He questions, purposely giving you a hard time, but
you know he’s joking and doesn’t mean it in a mean way.
“Yeah, but the sun makes me
sleeeeepy.” You drag out the last word before hiding your face in his t-shirt.
The afternoon sun is shining into the hotel room, and the exhaustion you feel
is a good kind of exhaustion. Shawn has a show in a couple of hours, but
neither of you have anything planned until then. “Take a nap with me?” You ask
“You’re literally the cutest
person ever.” He tells you smiling down at you.
Your eyes flutter closed,
and you’re too tired to respond to his statement. You feel his lips press
lightly against your forehead before he moves slightly to get more comfortable.
And in his arms you fall asleep listening to the sound of his steady breathing.
I'm having an awful month. May I ask for a lot of comforting fluff? MC breaking down after a really hard day and RFA comforting MC after a rough day?
Fluff till the end of times! (I’m sorry you had a bad month, hope you’re feeling better by now, honey)
Hope you like this! ^^
RFA comforting MC
Tough day at work
Zen knew when things didn’t go as you expected, your frustration was all over your face
He plopped beside you in the couch, and you leaned on his chest immediately.
He hummed some lullabies, his fingers brushing your shoulder lightly.
“Can I do anything for you, babe?” “Can you get me a beer, please?”
Oh, okay… yeah, not what he was expecting, but he’d be more than glad to oblige.
You two ended up on the rooftop, chilling with the beer.
And he listened to all your venting, that was very vivid due to the alcohol.
He texted you during your break at your job the next day. “I’m rooting for you, babe! That chilling beer and I will be waiting you to come home <3”
Work was incredibly more manageable that day.
You had a little fight with your parents
Yoosung knew what this was about, you already told him you were meeting them to discuss a few things, he’s so sad to know it didn’t end up well.
He’ll do whatever makes you comfortable, whether you want to be alone whether you want to talk.
But he’s happy you chose the second option, it makes him feel reliable and mature.
“Do you want me to do something? Do you want me to talk to your parents?” you chuckle. “No, just come here and let me stroke your hair.”
Okay… though it feels like you’re comforting him, not the other way around, he’s happy to oblige, so he lays his head on your lap and let you do as you wish.
And though it’s very relaxing, he’s not sleepy, he’s listening attentively to all your venting. “That really helped me, thank you…”
“Don’t mention it. Anything else I can do for you?” “Nah, I’m better now, thanks.”
“Are you suuuure?” he asks with a smirk, you sigh “Can you do your omurice for me?” yep, he knew this was coming.
So he did the omurice, and wrote “it gets better” with ketchup.
College is driving you nuts
She gave you some days off the cafe for you to focus on your studies, but you’re still very stressed out.
She could make you coffee, but this wouldn’t relax you, much the contraire…
So she sits next to you and your pile of books, and takes the one you’re reading from your hands, leading to a glaring protest from you.
“Before you say anything, just know you’ve been studying for four hours non-stop now, and I know very well how unhealthy this is. Come on, let’s take a break.”
She drags you to the kitchen, and your expression change in the minute you see what’s on the counter: CAKE!
“I made it myself. Hope you don’t think this is too sweet…” “There is no such thing as too sweet!” “Well, there is, you could end up in a sugar rush and…”
You hug her. Awww, she totally forgot her lecture about the dangers of sugar in excess.
So you two sit and eat the delicious cake while you vent a little, but you don’t want to keep talking about it, why not talk about the future? When this cake will be on the cafe menu?
“Are you sure it isn’t too sweet?” “I think it’s sweet enough, just like you.” Yep, she’s never getting to that sugar lecture.
You argued with one of your best friends
He doesn’t really know what to say to make you feel better, doesn’t have good advice either.
But your gloominess is hurting him, even Elizabeth seems restless, missing her other owner’s patting.
And since he doesn’t really know what to say… he needs to find out what he can do.
So here he is with Elizabeth, she wants to know what she can do. At least that’s what he says.
You giggle imagining if he tried to do a high voice for her, and though he doesn’t know what he did, he’s happy to see you smile.
“Unfortunately, Elizabeth, this is a thing only humans can solve. But you can come here while Jumin stroke my hair?” Yep, will do.
So you’re laying on your back with Elizabeth on top of your tummy while your head rest in his lap, his fingers in your hair.
He listens patiently and attentively to your venting.
“Elizabeth thinks you’ll come through and find a solution, since you’re smart and amazing.” “Why doesn’t she tell me that herself?” you tease “Her throat is a little sore, her voice would sound odd for a lady.” You both laugh, but for different reasons, he’s just happy to hear you laughing.
Your family’s dog is sick
And judging from how sleep deprived you’re getting because you’re so worried, you’ll end up sick too.
There’s nothing much you or him can do but wait. And this waiting is making you very anxious.
He’s so worried, it took him all this time to get a normal sleeping schedule, and now it’s your turn to get a messy one.
“Hey, why don’t we go for a ride?” he twirls the key of one of his babies in his hand. “I don’t know, what if the hospital calls while we’re on road? I’ll have no service!”
“Who said anything about going on road?” he asks with a playful grin. Oh lord, what is he thinking?
You go with him because you’re starting to feel curious, you two go inside the car and he proceed to start the car… but he doesn’t.
He just turns the radio on.“Saeyoung, what the hell?” “Shhh… that song is my jam! Isn’t it your jam, too, MC?” “Well, yeah, but…” “So let’s sing!”
And you two do the cheesiest duets ever, with him always doing the female singer verses and you doing the male ones.
After laughing a lot, you sigh. “Ready to talk about it?” he asks, and you nod. This balance between getting goofy and getting serious is one of the best things about him.
Hello~ Could you please do some hc on how the rfa would react to mc having a huge scar? I'm sorry if I'm being pathetic but well... I have a huge one on my chest from an operation on my heart. I'm kinda used to it now but today one person said that it's disgusting and I had no idea it would hurt me so much. I love your writing. Thank you for everything you do
I’M SO SORRY THIS IS SO LATE >___<
I really wanted to do this request asap to make you feel
better… but I was busier for the past few weeks than I expected… And we have a LOT of requests in the inbox.
(Plus my sprained ankle from saving a dog on the road, and a virus—btw both happened the respective
days my horoscope sign was ranked 12th on Oha Asa horoscope D: Oha Asa is never wrong.)
Anyway enough with that!! I didn’t write Jaehee’s because I’m
not always able to imagine her reaction… Onto the very late fic—I am still very
very sorry that this took so long ;^;
RFA Reacts: MC with a Huge Scar
We all know he’s the somewhat shy, reluctant type when it
comes to doing… explicit stuff
So it took a while for him to find out about the scar on
When he saw it, his eyes were WIDE with shock
And that made you absolutely fucking nervous.
Was he… disappointed that you didn’t have perfect skin? That
when he touched you during intimate moments, he would have to run his hands
over your scar and maybe feel.. disgusted?
“Are you… disappointed?” you bit your lip, trying to control
the anxious feelings boiling in your chest
He frantically shook his head, his eyes still wide in horror
at your chest.
“MC… who did this to you?” he choked out, tears welling up
in his eyes. “Why do you have this…?”
Confused, you hesitantly replied, “What… do you mean? It’s from
a surgery I had on my heart, a while back…”
Immediately, relief replaced the fear on his face. He pulled
you close, breathing shakily.
“Oh god… I’m so glad… I was so scared that someone hurt you…”
You still weren’t sure how he felt about your scar. “You don’t
mind? That there’s this… thing on my chest.”
He continued to bury his head on your shoulder. “No, MC… I
would never be disappointed in you about something like this. I fell in love
with you because I enjoy being with you, not because of how you look.”
You returned his embrace with trembling hands, holding him
tightly. “…Thank you. Just. Thank you.”
Usually, Zen took you out on his day-offs from work
But for some reason, you had rejected his invitation that
day without reason
Worried, he visited you at home, wondering if you were sick.
He even brought you
You were very reluctant in opening the door to him, feeling shitty.
But you’d feel guilty letting him wait outside for hours (because he WILL do
that for you) and decided to let him in
He was like a puppy greeting their master home, jumping onto
you and hugging you as soon as he saw you
You winced slightly as his hard abs ahemchest bumped
against your scar
It’s not like it really
hurt anymore, but it was more of an internal pain
You avoided his excited gaze and his grin gradually turned
to a frown. “What’s wrong, MC?”
You sighed. “You know how I had that surgery a while back? I…
someone told me it looked disgusting today.”
His frown deepened, eyes narrowing into a glare. Despite his
very obvious anger, he maintained a cold, low voice. “Who said it.”
You shook your head. “It doesn’t matter who said it, more that someone actually commented about the scar in
the first place…”
His eyes turned sad. “But you’re very beautiful in my eyes…
If anyone insults how you look, I’ll always be here to feed you endless
compliments about you, because I am in love with you and I want to make you
feel better any way I can. MC… for every word that hurts you, I’ll give you ten
times the love and care to make you smile again.”
You let out a small smile. His words did help a bit. You simply nodded quietly in response to his
statement, and he returned a grin, pecking you on the lips.
One of the bodyguards had informed him about how you’d
locked yourself in your room all day. Overwhelmed with a sudden concern, he
left work early, not even bothering to clean up the documents on his desk. No,
you were a higher priority than his business.
He got home in record time, urging Driver Kim to speed on a
route with tolls so he could return to your side immediately.
In a panic, he whizzed past the bodyguards and maids at his
apartment as he rushed to your room. “MC!?” He was panting.
Hearing his voice, you froze inside the room. Why was he
home so early…?
You’d planned to wipe away your tears and convince yourself
you were fine before he returned so that he wouldn’t have to worry about you.
You didn’t like making him stress out about you. He had so many other important
matters to attend to, after all.
But he was here.
And secretly, you felt happy that he cared enough to come
check on you. Not that you would ever admit it out loud. It just felt good to
have someone worrying sometimes.
“MC… please open the door, and tell me what’s wrong,” he
pleaded, knocking on the door repeatedly.
You quietly stepped out of the room, hesitantly meeting his gaze.
It was a dark storm in his panicked eyes.
He looked over you quickly, sighing in relief that you
appeared to be fine, physically, at least.
His hands were trembling when they caressed yours, bringing
it to his lips to smother in kisses. “I heard that you’d locked yourself in
your room today. Did something happen?”
You slowly nodded, knowing very well that he would catch
your lie. And so you told him how someone had made a hurtful comment about your
He knew fully well that you could be sensitive about it,
even though you were usually okay. So he listened quietly as you spoke, letting
him comfort you with a warm hug and calming hair strokes.
No matter how calm he usually appears on the outside, Jumin
loved you enough to make a fool of himself for even the little things. Because he
loves you for who you are, for every moment you’ve shared together, and
everything you’ve ever done for him.
He’d actually been by your side when it had happened. When
someone made fun of your scar.
And Seven was absolutely furious, holding himself back from
punching them, only because you had quietly told him not to, in a pained voice.
The car ride back home was silent. He was quietly fuming in
anger, while you were feeling self-conscious about yourself.
Then suddenly, he went off the road you usually took, calmly
driving on the highway elsewhere.
“Where are we going?” you asked, bewildered by the sudden
change in route.
You stared out the window, feeling calm from the ride as the
scenery whizzed by.
When the car finally stopped, you noticed that you had
pulled up to a hot spring motel.
“We’re gonna be staying here for the night,” he grinned. “So
you can relax!”
You felt touched by his actions. He wasn’t the best at
comforting people verbally considering his own history… but he always knew what
to do to make you feel better.
“But… how did you make a reservation for us so quickly?” you
There are days when it’s really hard to not fall apart. Those are the days when I feel a little like an unkept garden. My roses are just starting to wilt and my daisies have had all of their petals plucked in my attempt to figure out whether or not you still love me. Those are the days when I actually find myself almost sending you the “I miss you” text that I know won’t get us anywhere but that might still make me feel better..? Because I don’t know how to talk about it with other people, and a lot of me doesn’t want to talk about it with other people because nobody knows you the way that I did. Nobody tasted you the way that I did because that was the version of you that you only showed to me. That’s the person I need like water in those terribly dry moments, but he doesn’t even exist.
