i'm really trying to look past it

anonymous asked:

So, I watched "It" again and noticed in that school scene, when the boys (Bill, Richie, Eddie) get out of the classroom together, they just walk past Stan's own classroom. When Stan comes out of it, he desperately looks around trying to spot his friends, and when he does, he runs to catch up to them, telling them to wait up in a sort of pleading tone, and even sighs in relief when he catches up with them...So yep, that poor boy really does have a fear of abandonment, and I'm crying blood.

It’s okay to be slow when you’re making art.

So I kind of wanted to make a post about this.

I know some of you look around, and you see all these artists making such beautiful art in time spans of like an hour or a few hours, and then you look at your work and you get so demoralized because you’re taking so long.

I’m here to tell you that that’s perfectly okay. You’re not other artists. You are you, and your work defines you. If you need to take 10 hours, or even days to complete your art piece, it is okay, because it’s yours. You’re doing your best to make your art what you want it to be, and just because you can’t do it in a few hours like other artists do, it doesn’t make the value of your work any less. In fact, your patience and perseverance is absolutely admirable.

Take your time. You’re using your hands to create something that you love. Don’t let the people around you that you see hinder that in any way. You will definitely get faster in time, but if you give up now, thinking that you’ll always be this slow when you make art, you’ll never reach that stage. This applies not only to art, but also to other skills that you’re trying to pick up.

So look at what you yourself are doing, instead of looking around at others. Don’t worry too much, and enjoy yourself in the process of creation and learning! :)

“Take this!”

Fickle and bored Kamui is definitely something I recognise, but the top most panel connects this FAR MORE STRONGLY to the pained and tortured Kamui that has to suffer the fact of Fuuma’s existence and everything that their battle represents.

WHICH, AGAIN, FAMILIAR, BUT NOT SOMETHING I ACTUALLY WANT TO HAPPEN. Even with that strange eye thing of his returning, that I still can’t figure out or comment on. 

But. I actually have hope that their confrontations will go better than any of the ones in X/1999.

I can’t tell whether this is out of my own optimism or if it’s out of pure denial of everything that happened in X. Because oh my god you guys. Every time Kamui met Possessed Fuuma it was SO BAD. JUST.

SO BAD.

I have to believe CLAMP wouldn’t pull that off again here.

Meanwhile “You can’t go alone!” reminds me a bit of Arashi here, but I feel like the hard angles of their speech bubble is angling a bit more towards a robotic angle? Maybe they’re Nataku? In which case I really have no idea what’s going on anymore and it’s just a giant shrug on my part.

Okay, I’m gonna say it: I’m not happy at all with the fact that the malec kiss in that teaser looks just like the others we got in 2a.

It’s like a continuation of the almost kiss in 2x07, with a sprinkle of the one from 2x06 on top.

These directors fucking suck when it comes to malec intimacy and it’s getting on my nerves. How freaking hard must it be to insert some freaking variety? Another angle? More passion? A wider shot? Them hugging while doing it? Anything?

There was more variety, emotion and detail in their first kiss in 1x12, than in all of those from s2 put together, and seeing as the actors are the same, the blame is not on them, but on those who direct and shoot those scenes. S1 had its flaws, but how malec was handled was not one of them, which is why it got a freaking award for it.

I'm looking forward to the Borscht scene from Viktor's POV. That's so heart-warming that the love of your life remembers and cooks your favourite dish. I bet Viktor's treasure even fried eggs if they're made by Yuuri. I hope there'll be more cooking and eating together scenes in the future.

I really want to do more domestic Viktuuri so if I get to write the extra scenes fic there will probably quite a few chapters of domestic fluff including ‘trying to learn to live together after they finally move in together when one was a student for the past five years and still waits until there is no available clothes left to do the laundry and the other one has no idea how to cook and has no idea what an appropriate food shop looks like (spoiler, they decide that Viktor is in charge of laundry since he actually does it properly and Yuuri mainly does the shopping since he doesn’t impulse buy and forget the essentials like the milk and they both split the cleaning since they both hate it but it’s more fun when they do it together with bad pop music playing in the background and Viktor trying to distract Yuuri with dancing)’ also, ‘Yuuri teaching Viktor how to cook and other fun kitchen adventures’ and ‘domestic life with two dogs and an angry cat son who shows up randomly for food’

I know this is a bit more serious than your normal awesome anons so I'm sorry, but I really look up to you as an artist and wanted to know if/how you deal with negative feelings about your art? I just spent the past hour trying to draw anything remotely good and I'm crying and so frustrated and hopeless. It doesn't help that I keep giving up for months on end but it's so hard to deal with. Do you have any advice? I'm sorry you don't have to answer I know it's not a cute or funny ask I'm sorry

Please don’t feel the need to apologize, I appreciate your ask, it’s okay!
I understand what you’re going through, especially since I constantly feel like I’m disappointing myself or that I can do so much better. For me, I think the best thing to do is to not deprecate yourself. You’re doing your best, and it’s amazing that you decided to pick up a pencil today, you’re doing great already! 

Try to find the things that you’ve done well in your drawings! Maybe that one brush stroke was really smooth and your lines are amazing or that color looks really good and that one circle actually looks like a circle. Even if it’s a really small detail or something you liked during your drawing process, then you’re succeeding !!

Take your time, and be lenient with yourself. If it feels like you’ve been drawing for hours and nothing turns out the way you want it to, take a break. you can come back to it later, you did your best for the day, it’s okay
Allow yourself to doodle whatever else is on your mind without thinking about how good it should turn out, kind of like as stress-reliever or just to blep down silly ideas

Be proud of what you can do because you’re giving it your all, you’re constantly improving with every line you make, and you’re the only one who can draw the way you do! even if it wasn’t a complete piece, whatever you’ve drawn is already making you a better artist, so please keep going <:

I'm always looking forward to the third-year video everyday coz these three are just adorable and fun together and hearing ken-chan's speaking voice and how it differs when he projects his voice as dadchi is guuuuwaaa! Also, not trying to be annoying but hiroki looking at ken-chan in some type of way these past videos is cute and heartfluttering guh

They really are just entirely too precious.  Ken-chan actually can do a few different voices; he’s had repeated problems in the past and has had surgery on his vocal chords twice now, so he regularly does voice training and therefore has that nice variation between his regular speaking voice and his Daichi voice.  

Also yes, Hiroki, can you….. not?  But also…. yes.

Is it legal to mandate your employees wear makeup? And not just any makeup but specifically eye makeup? Like I used to wear just lipstick because I have extremely itchy watery eyes so eye makeup and I don't mix well, but I got in trouble and was told lipstick doesn't count. I ended up getting suspended over it even though I've worn eye makeup every day since i got yelled at but I needed to be punished for my past behavior? I'm really starting to feel like my manager is trying to get me to quit.

In most, if not all, states it probably is since it could be considered a part of dress code. Personally I’d be tempted to come in looking like Stephan King’s It. While looking for a new job or already hired to another, ideally, but my temper tends not to be logical. -Abby

anonymous asked:

this is sort of a branch away from the "recommend a ttrpg system" thing you've been doing, do you do "recommend a video game" stuff too? I'm trying to find basically any kind of actually cooperative game I can play with other people that isn't just team vs team. playing against other people is exhausting and, nothing against people who like it, but it's the exact opposite of what I need in a game. any suggestions or ideas on what I should look for?

Oh, sure, I’ve done plenty of video game recommendation posts - you can creep the relevant tag on my blog for past examples.

As for co-op, it really depends on what you’re looking for. Team PvE (i.e., a whole bunch of players working together against masses of computer-controlled foes) is relatively uncommon and tends to have a high learning curve, but if you’ve got a buddy to play with, there are plenty of games with excellent two-player coop modes, both in local and online. That’s probably where you’d be best served to start.

Do you like physics puzzles, for example? Portal 2 has a very well-reviewed online coop campaign, and recently added support for player-created coop levels as well.

More of a Metroid fan? Believe it or not, there are Metroid-style games with online coop; Outland is probably one of the best.

Arcade-style beat-’em-ups? Try Curses ‘N Chaos.

Pick a genre, really - it’s too broad a question to drill down to specifics.

Ive read you oc page and all and maybe it's somewhere else but I was wondering about the story? Of course if it somewhere I'll go and look and you shouldn't bother but I'm on mobile right now and in the middle of a family gathering and I'm just really curious Much love!

i’ll just copy paste it for u 

so the main setting story is in a world where like 40% of the population has super powers bc like a lot of years ago ppl started experimenting w human dna and trying to combine it w like animal dna to add some cool stuff like, lizards can make new tails so they wanted to see if humans could evolve into doing that (like self healing) and it worked!! science stuff idk shit abt lmao

anyway a lot of years passed and there’s already a bunch of superhumans, ones just live their everyday lives, others do crime, and there were special forces made for stopping the bad ones etc

then a discovery was made! after a baby was born who’s parents were both superhuman, it turned out to have 2 superpowers! ppl rly didn’t care that much, more ppl w 2 powers were born and it wasn’t necessarily an everyday thing but like, no one was worried abt them
these ppl were called hybrids

anyway no one rly cared much abt how many powers someone had

until a series of murders started happening

many rich buisnessmen and politicians (important people) died the same way by having their hearts ripped out
the culprit they found turned out to be a hybrid and was sentenced to death, so people started freaking out abt hybrids and seeing them as dangerous

since then hybrids had to hide, otherwise they would be killed, people started to realize how much weaker they actually were than them, after they made sure the last hybrid was dead, they became some sort of a taboo, it was againts the law to mention them and 2 people with superpowers weren’t allowed to have kids

until dun dun not all of them were dead whoops how the turntables
anyway here’s a group of teen hybrids that are gonna try to prove the world that its super wrong abt them

This is a very belated birthday present for @badwolf626 I swear I started this before your birthday, but ragweed pollen and anxiety got the better of me and I crawled into a hole and didn’t want to come back out ^^;; This is her Ryder, Kira with everyone’s favorite smuggler Reyes Vidal :3 I hope you like it and I hope it looks like her!

anonymous asked:

Hey so I'm really not trying to start shit but I just wanna know what you think about that whole johnny controversy with his wife about the domestic abuse or whatever. I never got the full story and just want to hear your take on it if that's cool?

First of all thank you for being polite and open minded about this situation.Most people on tumblr these days don’t look past the headlines and the sensasional propaganda-like articles.

The truth is that I’ve talked about this situation a lot here in my blog and you can find many of my posts on it if you go want.Here’s what went on:

Amber Heard filed for divorce,2 days after Johnny’s mother died, after he supposedly threw her an iphone in the face.That night that this incident took place the LAPD was actually called but cops say that Amber was uninjured.I’ll put a link in the end of my answer where you can find more info about what went on that night cause otherwise it will take me pages to actually talk about everything.In summary:

Initially there’s no mention about Domestic Violence.Amber sends a blackmail like letter to Johnny’s lawyer requesting spousal support,an SUV car with him paying for everything it needs,3 apartments again with Johnny continuing to pay for everything and attorney fees.She says that if he doesn’t give her what she wants she will go public with abuse.Johnny denies her requests and the shitstorm begins.Amber says that he’s been abusing her throughout all of their relationship and begins selling her evidence to the tabloids but refuses to actually give them to the police and file a police report.She gets a temporary restraining order against him,something that doesn’t need any proof to get .A trial about a pernament restraining order is set.To get  that,Amber needs solid proof that she’s in danger and that she was abused.After weeks of Amber avoiding her deposition and leaking evidence she dropped her pernament RO request,a few days before the court took place(August)You will hear people saying ‘’He settled so he’s guilty’’ but the truth is that she was the once who dropped her case.That famous 7mil settlement was about the divorce and had nothing to do with the allegations of DV.She said that she will donate the money but as of now it seems like she hasn’t done so yet with the money she has gotten so far.You can read more details about the whole case here

My take on this situation is that things never happened like Ms. Heard claimed they did,and there are tons of reasons about why I have that opinion.And no it’s not because I am a huge Depp fan who thinks that he can do no wrong cause,for the record,initially I believed her.I said to myself,wth would a woman lie about DV,it doesn’t make sense.As the days went by I realised that something shady was going on and as I started following the case closely I was persuaded,and still am,that it was all BS.Why I don’t believe Amber?

Well here are some of the reasons:

-She said she was afraid for her life but if Johnny has said yes to her initial requests she would never filed for a RO and she would continue living in his condos with no problem.Make sense.

-She choose to sell her ‘’abuse’’ photos to People mag instead of going to the police.She basically chose publicity over justice.

-The cops who went there when he allegedly threw a phone to her said that there was no sign of any injury

-She actually was arrested for assaulting her ex gf in public back in 2009.Her gf said that it was not true and that the cop was homophobic but it turned out that the cop was a lesbian

-She avoided her own deposition 3 times before she actually sit for one cause she would have been prosecuted otherwise.The first time she said that shw would be in London for a costume fitting but she was papped hiding at an LA hotel.The second time she did go but she threw a temper tantrum and in the end she wasn’t deposed.The third time she said that she couldn’t catch a flight for London.Then a judge order that she MUST go or she will be prosecuted and she finally was deposed,the 4th time.

-She said that she will file a police report to prove that she isn’t lying but she never did cause she still ‘’loved him and didn’t want to bury his career’’.Sure Jan.

-Many of Johnny’s exes came to his defense

-He had a LOT of witnesses not only to support that he didn’t abuse her but also to say that she was the violent one

-He has lots of evidence including text and photos.He never leaked them but there were listed for the court that never happened x

-Neighbours and building workers who saw her the days she was supposedly bruised in the face say that she didn’t have any bruises and that she was make up free

-The phone incident happened on Saturday.On Sunday she went to a party and there was a photo where you could see half of her face and she didn’t seem to have a bruise.He supporters will argue that it was covered by hair but why was the photo taken down then?

-Amber’s bf Raquel lived nexdoors(in one of Johnny’s appartments,rent free of course)and she said that the bruise appeared immediately after Johnny supposedly threw her the phone.If the bruise appeared so quick then how come the cops didn’t see it when they arrived 45 minutes after?

-In the court docs Amber says that when threw the phone at her she was on the phone with another friend,iO Tillet Wright and she screamed at him to call the LAPD.In an essay he published later iO stated that he called the police cause she never would.So,did he call the police by himself or was he told by Amber to do so?We’ll never know.

-There’s actual footage from the tv show overhaulin where Amber actually hits Johnny.Playfouly,but pretty aggresivelly.Now what kind of abuse vitim would even think of hitting her abuser on public tv?

-People who were close to both,or to Amber have choosen to side with Johnny.(Greg Williams,Smantha McMillen,Brittany Eustis etc)

-She has a lying history.She falsified docs and lied to the Australian authorities.She has also lied on multiple smaller occassions so she does have a lying pattern.

-In court documents she says that Johnny had been abusing her emotionally,verballly and physically nonstop for the last 3 years.Later she said that he only abused her when drunk.

-As far as I’ve been informed a judge is obligated to take a DV case to court if he sees solid evidence even if the victim doesn’t want to proceed.A judge saw all of Amber’s evidence yet he let her withdraw the case with prejudice which means she can’t refile it.

(I’m too bored right now to put sources under my points but I’ll definitely give them to you if you ask about them)

Things you will hear about this case that aren’t true:

‘‘He admitted it’‘:FALSE.He never admitted it.There was a public statement released x true.It read that no one lied for financial reasons.Having been an admit of guilt it would read No one lied.fullstop.Therefore no he didn’t admit it.

‘‘He never denied it’‘:FALSE.His lawyer did address the allegations,calling them false.

‘‘He has a history of DV’‘:FALSE.He doesn’t have one and his exes came to his defense.

‘‘He settled so he is guilty’‘:FALSE.She dropped the case by herself.Even if Johnny didn’t want to proceed he could have done nothing if she wanted the court to happen.It was only up to her.The settlemet that happened later was about the divorce.

‘‘But there’s video footage’‘:Yes video footage of an angry man hitting his cabites.Bad behavior,yes.Proof of physical violence no.

‘‘She donated the money’‘.Well although she said she will,it doesn’t look like she has done so with the money she has recieved so far.Plus she’s dating a billionaire and there’s also that thing we call PR.

‘‘He avoided his deposition’‘:He was never ordered to give one,only a sworn statement.

Fun Facts:

Amber leaked the video AFTER she had agreed to drop her case which doesn’t make any sense unless you want to just smear your ex,

She said that all the money will go to charity and when Johnny sent the first 200k directly to the charities instead of her she went crazy.

She had no problem living in his condo till last December although he still had the keys and she was afraid of him.Sure Jan.


There’s a lot more on this case.Whatever you choose to believe always keep an open mind and never believe everything you read.

The Weight of Water

(Or read on AO3. Look, I wrote a thing! A whole thing! I finished it!)

‘Agent Danvers, go home. You’re on leave.’

‘J’onn, I’m fine,’ Alex protests. Physically, she’s back to normal, and restless after a mere two days of inactivity. She needs to be in the field. She needs to be active. And the DEO – doesn’t exactly need her, she understands that, but it doesn’t need its agents scrambling to deal with her unexpected absence either.

And she’s fine. If she doesn’t remember that a glass box without air has been added to her rotating menu of nightmares. If she doesn’t mention it took her ten minutes to step under the shower this morning. J’onn gives her a piercing look, eyebrows raised, and Alex realises he knows anyway. She scowls at him.

She can’t really remember when this became their routine. About a year ago she gave him a macaron, and you know what they say about mice cats and cookies. Suffice to say, she’d been feeding the stray ever since. Eventually he’d begun to watch her bake the treats, leading to their recent development: helping her bake. Er, well, trying to.


Today they were having almond cookies and milk tea, but Chat Noir’s curiosity meant he was constantly poking ingredients, staring at the cookies in the oven, and generally getting in the way. Marinette chuckles to herself, thinking that no matter how often they did this he’d always end up watching the cookies, wide-eyed with wonder and tail swinging about impatiently.


The corner of her lips tips upwards as she moved to pour the heated milk into their mugs. All of a sudden Marinette’s feet fly out from under her, having tangled with Chat Noir’s tail as she passed by. Marinette made a small strangled noise as she tumbles down, straight towards the scalding pot in her hand. Chat’s ears twitch, registering her distress. He reacts without thinking, it’s become so natural, catching her around the waist before she can hit the floor.


Their heavy breaths resound in their ears as the pot rattles, spinning slowly to a stop. Immediate danger averted, Chat Noir sighs and loosens his shoulders only to notice Marinette’s hand had begun to pink.

“You got burned!”

Marinette follows his gaze to her fingers. “Oh. Don’t worry, this is nothing. Just wait a sec while I cool it.”

A little panicked and unhearing, Chat scoops Marinette off her feet and drops her on the counter by the sink, placing her hand under the faucet before scrambling to prepare an ice-water bowl.


“Chat, you’re overreacting! I swear it’s not that bad.” Chat Noir slows for a moment to tenderly hold her reddened fingers.

“But Princess,” Chat begins with drooping ears, “your precious hand…. It look so painful.” Instinctually, he leans forward and licks the back of her hand where the red was the brightest.


“Purrincess?” Noticing her stiffness Chat peers up quizzically at Marinette. A few moments pass in stillness and then the world tears into motion again as “CHAT NOIR!!!” rips past Marinette’s lips.




Bonus: Alya, who was out hoping to see Paris’ resident heroes, still swears she heard the shout, complaining the next day to Marinette that she chased the after call for 2 blocks.

In case anyone hasn’t had them before, these are Chinese almond cookies (at least how they usually look in America). Search for 杏仁餅 if you want to see more traditional ones. They’re really good, so give them a try if you get the chance!

I do hope that I'm not coming across condescendingly or being contradicting or just trying to start an argument with you. To be honest I'm in favor of a different set of gun control laws the fact that the US has so many shootings is ridiculous but I'm not sure what that gun control would look like yet and I don't want it to out the Americans in a place where we are left to the whims of the government because as a country we suck at picking good government officials

Ya know, I’ve really lost interest now. It’s 20 past midnight, I’ve been arguing with you people about this for pretty much 36 hours straight on this by now, and its just not worth it. You will never give up your guns because you, as a country, think a high rate of gun crime and repeated mass shootings are just the price you pay to keep a gun in the house for whatever reason, misguided or otherwise, and somehow you’ve made yourselves okay with that. You guys enjoy it - hope tomorrow’s one doesn’t feature some one you love.

hi, i've been following for a short while & have found your blog immensely comforting. i have a q regarding guilt feeding anxiety. while i understand it's unhealthy to dwell on past mistakes & wrong-doings, i've been finding it impossible to forgive myself when i don't feel i even deserve it. i'm trying hard every day to better myself, but i'm so emotionally and physically weighed with anxieties about the past that i can barely look forward. do you have any advice on learning to move on? thnks x

it really does depend on the things that have happened in your past. each mistake requires its own unique form of forgiveness that i can’t give you a genuine, well-rounded answer love! but for the time being.. whatever it is you’re holding onto will need to be addressed at some point. whether it be sitting yourself down, laying down and really replaying what went on, why it happened, and why exactly you feel so unable to forgive yourself. it’s important to get those thoughts out… to make sure those thoughts don’t make a big knot of themselves, you know? when you think so much w/o organizing them in a way that, you learn with each new thought or remember something that you may have repressed, they tend to go away and come back and go away and come back… so, be careful and make sure you at least write them down or talk to somebody about it.

the past is the past, and surely what’s happening right now will inevitably become the past. this includes those anxieties, those burdensome and treacherous replays of your pasts will soon come to a halt… because that’s what time does. or at the very least, they don’t hurt as much anymore. they stay, yes, but they don’t necessarily bombard you as they will now. please remember that each & every single one of us have pasts or things we have done/said that we are not proud of- what is important is that we grow. how can we grow when there’s nothing to grow from?- you can’t. if something you did feels as to so unforgivable, please assess why & how… it will rid yourself of that confusion, that anger that you’re holding inside of yourself.

it’s important that you get yourself talking. you don’t have to ask me how to ‘move on’, because moving on takes time, patience, learning, more and more growth. it doesn’t just take yourself, you can ask other people to be there for you & ask for their opinions, for their advice, etc. or if you just want someone to listen… that’s good, too. expression is always good. there are no immediate fixes. just a whole lot of time, a whole lot of healing (whatever that means to you.) a whole lot of realizing that mistakes are an inevitable part of every one of our lives, and what’s important is that we make them a learning opportunity.

if you have hurt someone, it’s valid and ok to be upset with yourself. if you were not there for someone, it’s ok to feel disappointed with yourself. let those feelings come in, accept them, but realize that these things happen all of the time. forgive yourself slowly. apologize, even if that person (if it is a person-) or apologize to whatever if that makes you feel better, if it makes it feel more valid. make sure it comes from the heart. remember that you’re human. remember that you have the rest of your life to learn.

Am I the only one word getting the feeling that Yoo Jin Oh is setting up Se Ju and Seol in the present? As in lowkey trying to get them together?
Like I know that he looks a bit heartbroken when he sees them hug, but the condition of keeping other men away from her when he knows that Hui Young loved her in the past? And giving him relationship advice? Seems shady to me.
