i've posted it before but whatever

I saw @propshophannah‘s post about Manon in a crown and attempted to sketch it because I was already looking for a reason to procrastinate

Dear Newbies 2017

If your pred is mean/difficult/unresponsive:
If you can’t talk to your Regional Representatives/Block Leaders:
If you have no connections in your prefecture yet:
If you’re feeling crappy/culture-shocky:

My ask box is always open and always has Anonymous options turned on, and I’m not gonna judge you. If you chat me through the message feature on Tumblr, I’m gonna respond to you.

If you’re in a situation where you don’t feel right, or good, it is okay. That happens sometimes. And if for some reason you’ve found my blog and you’re lookin’ for a little sympathy, it’s more than okay to reach out.

I mean it’s ALSO really okay to message me to gush about how happy you are, how excited you are, about the good things happening. But I know sometimes the tough things are the ones we have trouble discussing. So y’know. Whatever you wanna do!

lloeppky  asked:

Do we ask you the prompt for the kisses post you shared? I've never done this before. But if this is how it works, 19 and rebelcaptain please.

Yep, this works perfectly! And an anon also asked for 19, so a twofer!


#19: Kisses meant to distract the other person from whatever they were intently doing.


Afloat

“Jyn,” he gritted out, screw between his teeth. “Please stop.”

Cassian’s hands fumbled against the ship’s heavy artificial gravity generator, the hydrospanner floating away from his fingers when he felt Jyn’s lips brush against his ear, her breath hot against his skin. On their return from Adumar they had lost gravity on the U-wing, and for the past hour he had been trying to fix it, unsuccessfully. Jyn had tried to assist at first but stopped being a help after about fifteen minutes and was now more of a distraction than anything.

“Stop what?” she asked innocently, pushing herself gently off his shoulder and drifting away. Cassian turned away from the generator for a moment, flustered, and watch her swim away in the zero G. She bumped into the wall and pushed out with her arms, somersaulting back toward him. She came straight into his arms like a ship docking in the cargo bay, as was her intent, and without gravity in their ship her momentum pushed them both back into the other wall of the ship. His back hit against the wall and he heard her gasp and laugh when he felt her body push up against his.

“Jyn,” he warned, but he could hardly keep his voice serious when she looked at him the way she did, eyes sharp and focused, desire swimming in her dark pupils. He loved her when she smiled; loved her even when she didn’t. They had spent so many years serious and engaged in battle–what harm was there in finding a small moment of peace where they could get it?

Jyn wet her lips with a swipe of her tongue and leaned into him, kissing him with more urgency than the situation called for, but it made his skin spark, made the blood rush to his head. Her mouth was hot, and her desire for him made his own for her swell in his chest. Cassian’s hands slid beneath her shirt, and she shivered when he touched her. She responded by sliding a hand against the flat of his chest, fingers walking up to his throat, fingers smoothing over his jaw, palms cupping his face, thumbs caressing the arch of his cheekbones with a tenderness she never revealed to anyone else. Then against him, he felt her draw up her legs, pinning him between her thighs, and then he heard the sound of her boots against the metal of the wall and he braced himself against her as she pushed off, sending them floating off gently in the zero G.

“I’ve never done this before,” she murmured, pressing a kiss into his neck.

Cassian laughed. “Me, either.”

Jyn bit her lip, mischief in her eyes. “You know what else I’ve never done in zero G?”

“Hmm?” he said, distracted now by the tendrils of hair around her face. Impulsively, he reached back and undid her bun and watched as her hair floated around her.

“I’ll give you three guesses.”

He closed his eyes for a moment, feeling weightless and free, then blinked them open and placed one soft kiss on the corner of her mouth. “I think I’ll just need one.”

opinion

ya boi only gets involved in minimal discourse but literally here’s’ just my opinion. and that’s what it is, an opinion. if you want to have a discussion about it, please keep it to a DISCUSSION, and not a ‘you are now evil because i say so’ kind of follow up that many others seem to face.

asexuality and aromanticism are definitely 100% real and valid identities and should respected as such. many people struggle to accept this as part of their identity and figure out that is how they feel.

however, if you are cis asexual heteroromantic, cis heterosexual aromantic, or cis aroace, you are not lgbt because you do not experience same/similar gender attraction or are trans/non binary.

if you are ace or aro and DO experience same/similar gender attraction or are transgender/non binary, you are lgbt, but not because you are ace.

lgbt is a community based around identities that face systematic oppression. asexuality and aromanticism may face prejudice, but cannot come close to the history of lgbt oppression.

i highly question the opinions of others who believe that an indicator of how much you feel attraction to somebody in either a romantic or sexual way to someone is enough to make you lgbt, because again, to BE lgbt you must be attracted to the same/similar genders or be trans/non binary. it almost seems similar to the idea that to be lgbt your identity or sexuality must be ~different~ in some way. i’m not saying that this is what asexuality or aromanticism IS, i’m just stating that it doesn’t make sense to include something that doesn’t for the description of a specific community that isn’t based around that.

the asexual and aromantic community has been and could be able to be a separate community on it’s own without being involved with another community that does not fit their descriptor.

the ace community can work ALONGSIDE the lgbt community, but shouldn’t really be interchangeable due to reasons stated above.

there is a bit more to my outlook on his ‘issue’ but this is the baseline of my opinion.
cis het people should not be in a community based around same/similar gender attraction and being transgender/non binary simply because of the fact they do not experience attraction or they have limited attraction, ect.
be proud of who you are, yes, but please do not strive for ace/aro activism through lgbt activism as they should be separate issues.

again, i am open for discussion about this.
i hope all asexual and aromantic people have a great day, night, whatever time it is and i hope people can be civil with me about this. peace y'all ✌️

gladstone is far from being my Big Favourite as far as waterfowl goes. but.

this goose, or half-goose, or whatever the hell, was born with the very fabric of reality at his beck and call. it literally rearranges itself in any number of unlikely ways to align with anything he’s actively or passively wishing for.

HE SUBCONSCIOUSLY SUMMONS METEORS. or, i guess, the universe does it for him, but the end result is that gladstone is terrifyingly powerful. there is absolutely nothing stopping him from becoming the world’s richest man!

and you know what he actually is? that lucky pest down the street. that guy with no friends that spends all his time trailing after his cousin who hates him. that’s it! he’s achieved nothing! people call him a bum!

donald’s and gladstone’s fortunes were switched once, and the former achieved a villa and a butler and the title of “royal higness” in a matter of days!

the difference is that gladstone doesn’t have a single ounce of ambition in his feathery body. he’s the laziest loafer on earth. he can’t be bothered to make active use of his powers, he just lets them work for him.

AND WHY IS THAT?

IT’S PRECISELY BECAUSE HE WAS BORN WITH THOSE POWERS.

they kept him from developing the skills anyone else would need for basic survival. they never let him know anything other than instant gratification, so he cannot even conceive of working towards something bigger. do you get it.

he does not use his powers for selfish acts on a massive scale because he is used to them. he cannot take full advantage of them because he has them. they have shaped him into someone who is basically incorruptible.

the very nature of supernatural luck ensures that its owner would never use it for anything that isn’t just, petty jerkery, basically. it’s so beautifully circular.
