anonymous asked:

honestly, youre so reassuring about everything and telling us that season three is gonna be talking bout stuff too,, its just so nice like i hella ship klance and the lack of lance made me sad but youre just there saying "season 3!!" and it makes me feel a lot better, so thank you but-- what do you think about the creators queerbaiting and saying that romance wasnt an option because the characters had to save the world? do you think that was an early interview or something?

aw yeah np !! i like being positive about these kinds of things :-) and about the qbing thing, well,,, idk i lowkey trust the writers to not entirely screw us over. ALSO im sure with several seasons left, theres certainly gonna be time for non-savetheworld-activities.
like just take a look at legend of korra!! korra and asami had their relationship develop heavily over the course of a couple seasons in the background while korra was Saving the World!!! its not impossible. i have hope ☀️

tbh i’m kind of thinking of remaking my blog
i’ve just had this one for so long and have a lot of bad feels related to it
it’s also really messy and like……too messy to just clean up i feel like i need a fresh start
idk i’m not sure yet i’ve just been thinking about it for a little while now

Tips on Writing Characters Without Faces

so yeah, we all know that facial expressions can tell us a lot about how a character is feeling, but what if that isn’t an option? how can you make someone emote if they don’t really have standard facial features? the answer; body language.

let’s consider how emotions are conveyed on a stage production vs movie with Sweeney Todd. First, the stage play:

Note how Todd’s entire upper body goes into his gestures, how he’s single-mindedly focused on his dreams and ideals; how his hands GRAB for each imaginary ‘man’ with these sharp, aggressive, destructive movements and how that contrasts with Mrs. Lovett’s body language; how her hands linger in the air and gravitate towards Todd even after he’s pulled away, and the slow turn she gives him. It does an excellent, though exaggerated, way of conveying their relationship (her focus is on him and making him happy, his focus is entirely on revenge)

Contrast this to the movie:

Originally posted by curiousitykilledthekat

Same lines in the song, much more subtle. Lovett’s eyes still track towards Todds, which reminds us she’s still more focused on the outside, but all of the emotion is in their faces. Were this not a close-up shot in a movie it’d be very, very hard to read their expressions.

While I do recommend you watch a few stage plays (in person near the back row if you can) to actually study body language for yourself or try out charades with your face covered with friends/watch how cosplayers or mascots emote, here’s a few shorthands to get you started (US-centric so expressions may vary on your region):

Head:

  • perfectly still - fear, intense attention, feeling under scrutiny
  • tilted up - recollection, intimidation (looking down nose at threat, aiming to appear taller)
  • tilted down - intense thought, shame (avoiding eye contact), depression/sad feelings
  • turned away - not giving person full attention, avoiding subject/conflict without being combative
  • cocker-spaniel (sideways) tilt - confusion, curiosity, amusement

Hands

  • at the forehead - fatigue (wiping away sweat), illness (checking self for fever, feeling a headache), realization/memory (a ‘well duh’ tap)
  • at the eyes - fatigue or headache (shielding eyes from light), distress (blocking out a painful view, concealing tears)
  • at the nose - disgust (a pinch at the nostrils,) irritation (rubbing at sore spot on nose from glasses wear)
  • at the mouth - nausea, surprise, repressing an emotion/stopping self from saying something
  • at the chin - contemplation, tiredness (face resting in hand)
  • rubbing back of neck - a need to relax tension, embarrassment, slight unease/desire to distract self
  • at the chest - surprise, self-protection (reaction to a wounding statement, sometimes used sarcastically), strong emotions (clutching at heart, could be good-strong or bad-strong), need for security (touching necklace/adjusting clothing to conceal more)
  • at the stomach - pain (clutching, pressing), satisfaction after a meal, protectiveness towards fetus when applicable
  • at the hip(s) - confidence, intimidation, nervousness (if grabbing for weapon)
  • at groin - concealment/unease (usually male-coded as protection of genitals), politeness (hands folded in lap)
  • on thighs - exhaustion (bent over, hands on legs supporting tired upper body)
  • formed into fists - holding back an intense emotion, preparing to fight
  • toying with something - restlessness (bored, nervous energy, craving something they can’t touch) or deliberate disrespect of property (playing with personal objects someone holds dear as an intimidation tactic)

Arms

  • at sides, relaxed - default posture
  • at sides, tense - unease, restraint (soldier at attention, person holding still to avoid being attacked), fear
  • crossed at chest - disapproval, displaying authority, unease (hugging oneself)
  • crossed at stomach - pain, intense laughter (caused by sore stomach muscles from laughing)
  • up, fingers laced behind head - confidence, relaxation
  • one arm on back of furniture - confidence, invitation for someone join them
  • general rule - the further arms are away from body, the more confident/dominant a person means to appear; exposed torso indicates that they don’t see anyone around as a threat to them

Legs

  • square with shoulders - professional, restraint, protective stance
  • wide stance, one foot a little back but planted - defensive stance, expecting to receive blows (knees may be unlocked - seen in swordplay and fencing)
  • weight on one leg - relaxed, tired, may also be leaning on something or pair with one ankle tucked behind the other
  • uneven stance - could indicate old injury
  • foot tapping/bouncing - boredom, nervous energy

Whole Body:

  • stiff and still - fear, unease, standing to attention
  • limp or pliant - relaxed, tired, pleased
  • shoulders back/head up - alert, focused, aggressive
  • shoulders forward, hunched - tired, ashamed
  • leaning towards person - interest, intimidation (looming over them), aggression (usually paired with tense arms or hands in fists,)
  • leaning away from person - relaxation, confidence, disgust (recoiling)
  • smooth/fluid movements - joy, confidence, experience
  • stiff motions - fear (reactive, fight or flight), pain (reluctance to move), anger (either fighting to keep control of emotions or lashing out), cold (conservation of heat by keeping limbs near body)
  • cracking joints/stretching - preparing for a fight, often reading as confidence in abilities
  • general rule - close contact/proximity can read as intimidation (paired with tense body - an invasion of personal space) or affection (paired with relaxaed body language, gentle movement) or passion/attraction while distance can read unease/distaste/fear/dislike.

with those in mind, let’s read this scene from Red vs Blue (a personal fav of mine for body language) featuring agent texas from season 8.

Originally posted by cryingmanlytears

So first of all, very relaxed upper body; limp arms held away from the body, which slowly come back to rest on her hips as she looks at what she’s done. Watch how her lean shifts at the end as her center of gravity shifts, and how she has to move her right leg to restabilize herself when she’s finished pushing it. This reads, in order from the start of the loop; detachment (the least amount of her body is involved in the action as possible), relaxation (smooth movements, the deliberation of those little steps backwards) and confidence (hands on hips.) We can tell a ton about this character just in this gif alone, based on her body language.

in summary! this list isn’t exhaustive, but hopefully it gives you some ideas for ways of making characters emote in fics when you can’t see their faces.

“I love Rouge she’s my fave”

“But her design is just awful, sexualization much?”

When your crush finds out about your embarrassing niche blog 

Based on this but like, with sansby lmao idek

the video title is ‘Glitter bomb! FTA’ because Sans and Frisk have a youtube channel called “For The Aesthetic” where Sans eats garbage by request. And then Frisk gets an ambulance.

Bonus: 

what i find really cool about the dance pics is that you can really tell who the characters are by their dancing? like, yurio dances with a lot of anger and without a lot of finesse - he does a lot of cool stuff, sure, his body can do all sorts of things - but he doesn’t have any beat or flow. he’s just making his body do impressive things to impress, he’s not giving a good overrall experience. that’s something he’s struggled with in his skating, where he did amazing technically but had no feeling behind the routine. chris, of course, uses a pole. he’s a very strong man, proud of his body, and very sexual. pole dancing really highlights his skating, and his interactions with the other skaters so far. he’s got nothing to hide. then viktor - viktor is clearly moving his body with a lot of finesse and style, but he looks like he’s still on the ice, not really dancing. he throws his legs out like one would during a routine, poses his hands in the same way, doesnt use his hips. its got class, sure, but its not super dance-y. at the same time, it’s not nearly as serious as his skating can be - he’s there to have fun. viktor wants to have a good time, and dancing with yuri, he is. and speaking of yuri: he, of course, dances like his body is the music itself. just like how viktor described his skating. on top of that, interestingly enough, he seems to go along with the styles everyone else is doing. he breakdances with yurio, pole dances with chris, dances like he’s doing couples skating with viktor. going along with the flow - that’s something that yuri has admitted to struggling with, particularly in regards to choosing his own music for his routines. even though he started the dance-off, he still went along with the styles that everyone else chose. it’s really cool to see all of that reflected in the pics

Because this fandom probably has twenty steven universe AU’s already but I frankly just don’t care 

I had to include their fusion, who would honestly just be the biggest flirt since they are the living embodiment of sexual tension.

Also I feel like Chat would sacrifice himself a lot in battle for his lady and she would refuse to leave his side until he comes back. 

anonymous asked:

im kind of confused by always sunny like what is it actually about? like some of the things in it make me rly uncomfortable like the whole thing with carmen and mac's homophobia and the casual racism nd stuff in it nd i just dont kno how im supposed to react to it like am i supposed to love it and find it funny or hate it and the characters or? idk nd ive been on the iasip reddit as well and its a lot different from what ive seen the fandom on here talk abt tbh? idk

this is a really good question! and one that i had myself before i started the show. unfortunately it’s not something i can answer very briefly so please bear with me. i’m just gonna throw out the facts and things as i see them and then you can draw your own conclusions on how to feel about the show; i will readily admit that it has more than its share of legitimate issues and that the show just isn’t for everyone.

so the basic premise of the show is that four self-centered assholes (joined by a fifth self-centered asshole in season 2) own a shitty irish bar in south philadelphia. they never actually RUN the bar, though, because they’re too busy trying to run get-rich-quick schemes or because they’re doing other stupid things.

if you ask the writers, they will say that there IS no premise; it’s just a show about these horrible characters living out their sad, pathetic lives.

the truth is somewhere in the middle– the show is one third social/political satire, one third nihilist comedy, and one third character-driven tragedy.

bts reaction to a barista writing their phone number on your cup while you are on a date with them.

Hey I dee your ask box is open c: can you please do a BTS reaction to a barista writing their phone number on your cup while youre on a date with them? (It’s a dream I had once idk)


heyyyy its done!!!!! my very first reaction post. i hope this fulfilled your expectations!!!! im a little nervous as it is my first reaction but i do hope you enjoy. my ask box is still very open if you wanna request anything else


Jin: in my opinion, I think Jin would be the most calm in this situation. We all know that boy has a lot of confidence in his looks (as he should, have you seen the man.) so I think he wouldn’t feel threatened by the barista. He would just brush it off, causally intertwining your hands. I think he might just find the barista’s attempt funny.

* Chuckling * “ isn’t it funny how he thinks he has a chance with you, when you are already with my handsome self.”

Yoongi: I think Suga might get a little annoyed, but wouldn’t voice it out. He doesn’t really know how to express his emotions and is more of a man of action as most of the members said in the past. So I think he will just be very passive aggressive. I see him doing something like; if he noticed the number after you both got your order, he would just silently switch up your cups, while secretly giving the barista the coldest glare he could muster.

“Looks like they got our orders mixed up.”

Originally posted by jjks


Namjoon:  in my opinion, Namjoon would be a very touchy feely person in a relationship, but he would be even more touchy when he would see that number. He would drape his arm around your shoulders pulling you towards him. He would have that shit eating grin on his face while looking at the barista, all smug. I think he would say something witty to put the barista back in his place.    

* calls the number on the cup while still in the shop* “ If my girlfriend and I need anything we’ll give you a call. Now get lost.”

Originally posted by yoonkooks


J-hope: I think for me Hoseok would be the most vocal out of all the members. As in would scream out in panic. He would see the number, cling to you like a koala bear and scream to the barista indignantly, demanding for a new order.

“How dare you hit on my jagiya while I, her boyfriend, am standing right here!! Make our order again and this time with no number!!”

Originally posted by troiskims


Jimin: in my opinion Jimin would be the most jealous out of all of them. He would put his arm around your waist and would look at the barista like ‘I will make out with her right here right now just to show she is mine.’ But of course wouldn’t, cause although he talks a big game of being flirty and all, that boy is just a shy little bunny. But he would be annoyed at the barista and would not be shy about voice his thoughts.

“Well jagi looks like we need to change coffee shops. The service here seems to be very unprofessional.” * As he puts the coffees on the counter. *  

Originally posted by ounew

Taehyung:  I think that Tae being the little shit that he is, would make sure to make a scene to embarrass the crap out of the barista with no shame whatsoever.

* Takes the cup with the number in his hand and raises it calling the barista. *  “ Excuse me! I think you forgot your phone number that you wanted to give to my girlfriend to flirt with her!” * customers look at the barista and he bows embarrassed before scurrying away behind the counter. *

(i mean just look at this little shit)


Jungkook:  He would definitely be pouty about the situation but wouldn’t necessarily say anything to the barista since he doesn’t speak up much, and he would still be pretty much inexperienced in the dating world. He would probably just glare at him and tilt his head up defiantly.

* Makes eye contact with the barista while crumbling the cup with the number on it in his hand. * (Thank god it was iced coffee XD)

i’m a little iffy on the trope that pisces moons can’t deal with reality.  i don’t think it’s really that they’re afraid of reality, or can’t stand to deal with it, but rather that they live so happily in la-la land that they just choose not to.  pisces moons are the people that are gonna love books, love writing, love character rp, love driving out in the middle of nowhere and escaping the whole world for a day.  it’s not because there’s anything in reality that they’re afraid of.  it’s that reality can become boring to them.  so much goes on in their thoughts, and i think that leaving earth for an hour and reading about or even becoming someone else is refreshing and just fun to them.  a pisces moon alone is still in touch with reality, they just like to leave it sometimes.
it’s people with multiple pisces placements that are harmed by this quality.  they’re the type of people who truly lose themselves in their fantasies, to the point where they actually create their own versions of reality and honestly believe they are real.  a pisces sun, or a pisces moon alone, knows where to draw the line.  but someone with their sun, moon, and other placements in pisces, don’t even know what’s real and what’s not anymore.  it’s actually scary to watch.  they really make things up in their mind and it becomes their reality; even people with incredible intuition or lie-detecting qualities have no idea that they’re not being genuine, because in that pisces’s mind, they’re not even lying.  they think they’re telling the truth.  there’s really no reason for you to distrust a pisces sun or moon, but someone with multiple pisces placements you may want to be wary of.  you actually never really know what version of the story you’re hearing from them.

So, like what if Maui and Tamatoa were some kind of broken, old friendship of the past? I feel like they were both pretty similar in the fact that they crave that extra attention and flattery in order to boost their self-esteem. It’s what defined them– other’s view of who they are. Plus, it seems as though they had a long past just based on the underlying dialogue that goes on between the two of them. Tamatoa seems to know a lot about Maui’s desire for acceptance from humanity, and Maui knows that Tamatoa is a collector and braggart who loves to talk about himself.

I feel as if the two of them could have served some purpose together in the past. Tamatoa being a collector, so he knew where to find exotic things. And maybe he could even tell Maui of these exotic things that he could bring back to mankind. But, Maui always seemed to be going above and beyond to please the humans – taking things that didn’t even belong to him and giving it to them for their acceptance. Maybe he took something from Tamatoa, that resulted in a huge altercation/fight between the two of them, which ended up in Maui cutting off one of his legs. Then the two of them went their separate ways as enemies.

I had a humbling experience today. 

I had a student in my class this semester who grated on my nerves every day. They asked random questions all the time, interrupted me, and argued with me  (not always rudely, just annoyingly) when I told them to correct things. They drove the other kids in the class crazy, I know, but I never allowed the students to say anything rude to the student, and I never let myself lose my temper. The one time a student did act rude to this particular student, I put a stop to it. I’m v. adamant in my classroom that no one should be singled out, made fun of, or treated with disrespect.

The student grated on my nerves more and more as the class went on. Forgetting assignments, not paying attention to the syllabus, more arguing. Though I was firm a few times and corrected the student, I never lost my temper, yelled, told them to get out, etc. I hate singling out students in class, mainly because it bothers my social anxiety, so I’m super aware of it with my students and how I interact with them. I try to limit any interaction that will put them on the spot or cause them discomfort, even if they’re driving me bonkers.  I generally corrected them, then just continued teaching. If they argued with me one on one, I explained their error and how to correct, or tried to offer suggestions to improve instead of getting mad.

Today, as the student left our last class, they gave me a hug and thanked me for the class and everything I did for them. They told me they unfortunately didn’t get into my class next semester, and then said I helped influence their future career/area for their future topic of study.

I almost cried. This student, who I was irritated with today and had to hold back from snapping at, hugged me and told me I influenced them only an hour later.

It was a moment where I realized why kindness and patience is so important. I could have lost my cool, been harsh with this student, etc, but I didn’t, bc that’s just not my nature. I just am not that kind of teacher. I consider myself too soft-hearted because I see my students as ppl I want to help succeed in any way I can, and many times go out of my way to help when it isn’t deserved. Often, I wish I was harder, stronger, harsher, colder as an instructor, but in that moment, I realized that the way I do things is important, too. 

I just realized afterwards that you really don’t ever know when you are influencing someone or being a positive influence. I never would have in a million years thought this student even cared for me at all. I’m really glad that I chose each time to take a breath and talk to the student calmly, to treat the student nicely during every interaction despite being annoyed most days, and to put an end to any comments from my other students. 

It made a small difference at least, and with the world like it is right now, I’m taking every small victory and positive I can.

now that I think about it… Victor had to conceal a lot…

like

I imagine him hiding his fanboy feels everytime Yuri did something. BeCausE HE hAd a HUGe CrUSH on HIM

HOW WOULD HAVE BEEN HIS REACTION IF YURI ALLOWED HIM TO ENTER HIS ROOM WITH ALL THE POSTERS NOW THAT WE KNOW THE TRUTH…!!???!!

LIKE “BOI– HE— HE LOVES ME” IDK AHHH

I I I WANT TO DRAW VICTOR BEING ALL SHY AAAAAAAAAHHHHH AND BLUSHING oVER YURI SECRETLY AHHHHH

OK OK OK HERE’S ANOTHER THING I JUST THOUGHT

THE NIHT WHEN THEY EXCHANGED RINGS, VICTOR WOKE UP THE NEXT MORINING WATCHING YURI WHILE SLEEPING LIKE WITH HIS SWEET EYES AND SWEET SMILE   AND KISSING HIM WITH LITTLE PECKS ON HIS FOREHEAD BYE

I feel like Lena is prob a very possessive and jealous person based on her upbringing. Like she’s 100% trying to work and show Luthors can be good and accepting people but I think she still has some ingrained prejudices and expectations from always being wealthy and affluent. And I feel like there’s a lot of story potential in those feelings with her relationship with Kara. Like in one episode she’s already showing up at her work and her house? And when she sees Alex she freezes, because the idea that that Kara may be spoken for / she can’t just have Kara may be a very very foreign concept for her.

Idk I think it’d be interesting to see the show or at least fic explore that idea of someone who always had the world at her fingertips not automatically getting the thing she wants

i always wonder if people miss me just as much as i miss them, and it’s hard dealing with that when you have depressive thoughts about yourself already. like “of course they don’t” “you had nothing to offer in the first place” and “everything is your fault, it’d be better if you were never around”. idk i just feel that a lot and wish my heart wasn’t so big and vulnerable.

Alone on New Year’s Eve

Word Count: 1570

Summary: You plan to be home alone on New Year, but Jefferson shows up and.. Idk just read the story

Pairing: Thomas Jefferson x Reader

AU: Modern

Warnings: Panic attacks.

A/N: my first Imagine, and welp. I mean, i tried. I do like it, but it’s. Idk. Keep in mind that this is not my native language, and it probably sucks at a few points. Also Jefferson is so none-assholey? I’ll try to change that next time. Enjoy.

No. This is not at all how you’ve imagined the end of the year.

Almost everything went great so far. You had an amazing, well-paid job as a secretary, you could afford a decent flat, you’ve made a lot of friends and you even managed to fall in love with someone who might feel the same, despite the fact that you’ve just moved to New York. So why exactly did the year had to end with one of your worst fears?

Hi Anne! I love your blog! So basically i'm going to the wings concert in newark and it'll be my first time going to a concert so i was wondering like how do i prepare?? For example i already ordered a lightstick but like?? Should i make a sign?? How?? What about slogans?? Idk im just very new to all of this and was wondering if you had any tips. Thank you!!

first off, I’m so excited for you!!! so~ get plenty of sleep the day before, just seriously gather a lot of energy. eat well and drink lots of water the day itself. Just not too much water that you feel like you need to go to the bathroom. Wear comfy clothes and definitely comfy shoes. Even if you’re in the seating sections, you’d probably stand up most of the time anyways coz bangtan is hyped af at concerts you really can’t just sit down. Hehe! If you don’t need to line up, look out on twitter for fansites who might be there or some fanbases who will be giving out free stuff or selling stuff on the day itself.

I would say familiarize yourself with some of the fanchants too but no pressure coz even I find it hard not to sing along with the whole song. I actually don’t suggest for you to hold on to slogans or extra stuff bcoz it’s just a lot of distraction and things to hold, your lightstick should be fine~

ALSO! Don’t forget to have fun and meet new friends and talk to other ARMYs. The energy at concerts is amazing and you get to meet people who you can gush about bangtan and share stories and stuff. Prepare for one of the most amazing time of your life bcoz Bangtan in concert is just everything ;_; they also look like they’re not real when you see them hehe~ they’re even more handsome in person.
