idk seemed like a fun thing to do

the thing about chronic illness, or mine anyway, is that i dont hink you ever stop mourning the life you lost. 

like its not always at the forefront of your mind but its always there, and you are constantly reminded of it. like every time i see something i find fun or interesting, it is immediately followed by the fact that it is another thing i can’t do. 

like the list almost only grows longer. every time i see sports on tv, or any event that seems intersting that i want to go to, when i see people go hiking. going to a party, getting an education.

i am connately surrounded by the things i can’t do and its honestly so overwhelming. its really hard to try and look at the things i can do, and the list is so much shorter. 

and idk i just really want people to recognize how fucking hard it is to live with a chronic illness and i feel generally we deserve a lot more recognition. 

like do you have any idea how nice it would be if i could introduce myself to someone and tell them i have ME and not have to explain it all to them? and not tell them my whole life story? and not explain every single symptom? 

especially with illnesses like ME/CFS that aren’t even recognized as an actual illness in some countries (me/cfs, what i have, is categorized as a mental illness in denmark, where i live)

i dont know where i am going with this but i i just… want people to acknowledge the struggle and the pain i am in without me having to explain it. 

i dont know if other people with chronic illnesses feel the same but these are some of the things i really struggle with

(it ok to reblog this)

Zimbits/Made of Honor AU

Fair warning, I played fast and loose with the actual Made of Honor plot but it’s similar enough that I guess it counts.


–Jack didn’t kiss Bitty at graduation and they fell a little out of touch

–Bitty gets a job in Providence post graduation so he moves close to Jack and they reconnect

–They have weekly lunch dates and are in general BFFs

–Jack obvi plays hockey, and brings Bitty as his plus 1 to events since they’re BFFs

–They’re at some charity dinner and Bitty is like are you ever going to settle down with someone and have a plus 1 who’s not me

–And Jack is like well no hockey

-Bitty = :(

-Bitty’s bakery job sends him to France for like 3 months

-While he’s gone, Jack is like huh this is weird I like super super miss Bittle and hockey isn’t really as much fun without him around to text and have lunch w/e

-Also the Falconers get knocked out of playoffs and he’s grumpy that Bitty isn’t there to comfort him

-He tells Shitty and Shitty is like JLZ you useless robot you’re in love with him

-So Jack is like oh shit I’m in love with him and I must tell him

-So he goes to pick Bitty up from the airport and tell him

-But Bitty shows up holding the hand of another man dun dun DUNNNNN

-And Bitty’s like MEET MY FIANCE THIS IS PIERRE AND WE’RE IN LOVE

-Cut to restaurant scene where Jack is sitting miserably while Bitty and Pierre gush on and on about their whirlwind French romance and how they’re getting married at his parents estate in the French countryside

-Bitty: “Jack, you’ll be my best man of course say you will? You’re my best friend!”

-Jack: “…uh yeah sure.”

-Bitty: “Great it’s next month!”

-Jack: “…what”

-Jack, later on the phone to Shitty: “what do I do he’s marrying someone else in a month”

-Shitty: “We’re rounding up the troops and causing havoc #SamwellGotYourBack”

-Shitty calls in Ransom, Holster, Lardo, Chowder, Dex, Nursey, Tango, and Whiskey

-They decide to hold a series of tests designed to prove that Jack is a more worthy opponent than Pierre

-So they do like an Olympics/Chopped sort of thing with a variety of tasks. Bitty, Shitty, and Lardo are tasked as judges

-one of them purposefully fails each round to make Jack look good

-But Pierre is….keeping…up?

-The final round is a baking competition

-Somehow Pierre wins even though Jack busts out the maple sugar crusted apple and weaves literally the best lattice of his life.

-Holster: “Bro, idk…Bitty seems to really like him.”

-Ransom: “Yeah maybe we should let it be.”

-So fast forward to wedding time in France! There’s all sorts of fun shenanigans

-Interspersed with shenanigans is little hints that Pierre and Bitty don’t really know each other that well and have some fundamentally different ideas on things

-Like Pierre says something about pie not being the best dessert and Bitty is like waitwhat

-Jack and Bitty go for a run one afternoon and Jack almost gets up the courage to tell Bitty

-But then they’re interrupted by all of the Bittle women who have come to kidnap them for a bachelor party night!

-Cue “kisses for change scene” from the movie (for those of you who haven’t seen it, Bitty carries around a jar and people drop money into it in exchange for a peck)

-Jack puts in his money and leans in to kiss Bitty on the cheek and whoops, now they’re accidentally making out

-Bitty breaks off, slightly dazed, and is like “uh gotta go, bye.”

-Unbeknownst to them, Suzanne Bittle saw that whole exchange

-(Suzanne Bittle is also not a fan of Pierre)

-Suzanne corners Jack that night and is like “you love my son go talk to him.”

-Jack goes to talk to Bitty

-Cue epic blowout fight. Like…its ugly.

-“I pined over you in college and I pined over you in Providence and you have had plenty of time to decide that I was worth more than hockey to you and I’m not letting you ruin this for me because you’re scared of letting me go!”

-“You just ran off and got engaged to some rando and that’s how you want to get over me? Because you know, and I know that you know, that that kiss earlier was real. And you want this just as much as I do.”

-“But are you ready to come out? Because I won’t play second fiddle to hockey”

-“….”

-“That’s what I thought”

-Yeah not good.

-So after all that Jack leaves.

-Bitty and Pierre start getting ready for the wedding.

-Jack realizes he’s an idiot and turns around

-Jack comes busting in the doors right at “does anyone object.”

-Cue long impassioned speech about all the things about Bitty that Jack knows and Pierre doesn’t and why that means Bitty should marry him because Bitty is more important than any hockey game

-Bitty cries and then sadly tells Pierre that he can’t marry him

-Pierre lets him go because he’s honestly a good guy, he’s just in the way of the #Zimbits

-Jack and Bitty and the rest of the Bittles fly back to America

-Jack comes out with Bitty by his side

-They get married and live happily ever after

Hey Wiishu! Your vlogs are amazing, I look out to watch them every week, but are you going to upload a speedpaint again, like your old videos? These were also fun and inspiring to watch! Have a great day/night! :D

Good question and right now I still haven’t decided haha!
I like doing speedpaints but I don’t like uploading a 10 min video with just music playing? Idk, it seems a little off somehow? Maybe I can make it into a podcast thing of some sort in the future, but for now I don’t know how to incorporate it so that I’m satisfied with the end product, sorry!

anonymous asked:

Okay but fic idea: small Dick Grayson helping Barbara with makeup (for a dance or just 'cause or whatever). And like, he's actually fantastic with it??? Because he was in the circus and stage makeup was a thing, and now he needs perfect coverage 24/7 for the media and he also needs to conceal bruises and stuff from patrol so he knows a lot. Or, alternatively, Bruce helps Dick hone his makeup skills and is impressed by what he already knows? Idk man just anything with Dick and makeup haha

Confession: I put off answering this because I suck at doing makeup. It’s fun, but the only things I even put on are eyeliner and mascara and that’s like. Rarely. But I tried, and I hope you still enjoy!


“How do you even know how to do this?” Babs asks as Dick steps back and lets Barbara admire herself in the mirror. Barbara doesn’t really seem to understand what he’d done, but she seems to still like it as she moves her face this way and that, admiring Dick’s handiwork. “It looks amazing.”

“Thanks,” Dick says cheerfully. “My mom taught me when I was little. Spotlights and all that. I’d add glitter, but this is a dance, not a circus performance.”

Barbara hums, looking herself over, and then she shoots Dick a sly smile. “I could go for some glitter.”

“Yeah?” Dick laughs, rubbing the back of his neck. “And what do I tell the Commissioner when he asks why you have sparkles on your face when you’re going to a high school dance.”

Barbara rolls her eyes. “Stop being a wuss.”

“You’re dad’s scary. I can be a wuss if I want to.”

“Okay,” Barbara concedes, wincing a bit. “So my dad is a bit scary. But I’m in middle school. I can wear glitter if I want to.”

“And I’m your date,” Dick says. “And I’m going to try to keep your dad as happy as possible. I like living, thank you very much.”

Barbara decides that right then is a good time to punch him in the arm. Dick shoots her a glare and rubs the spot, but she’s not looking at him anymore. Instead, she’s looking over his extensive makeup kit. Dick grins when she picks up one of the many brushes and shoots him a raised eyebrow. “Seriously, Dick. This is all from the circus?”

“Some of it,” Dick says, shrugging. “Bruce replaces whatever I run out of.”

Barbara gives him an interested look. “You still wear it?”

“Yeah.” Dick doesn’t elaborate, though. He doesn’t tell Barbara that he wears it sometimes when he’s missing his parents and the spotlight and he wants something to connect him back to the circus, or that he’s wearing some right now to conceal the nasty bruise on his jaw from patrol two nights ago. He just grins and says, “It’s a lot of fun to put on and wear, you know?”

Barbara sends him a suspicious, because she’s always been a lot smarter than him at everything, but she doesn’t call him out on anything. Instead she just rolls her eyes and says, “Sure. Whatever you say. Now how about you go downstairs and talk to my dad and Bruce before my dad starts strangling Bruce to death for ever adopting you and letting you become friends with me.”

Dick snickers. “You don’t think he’d actual strangle Bruce, would you?”

Barbara raises an eyebrow. Dick’s out of Barbara’s bathroom and flying down the stairs before she can say another word. She’s probably wrong, but Dick’s not up to betting against her right now. Besides, he’s actually looking forward to everyone surviving tonight to have fun at the dance, so it’s best to just make sure.

It’s going to be a blast.

Hey, tumblr mom! Since everyone is asking you about food can I ask your opinion on frying pans? We need to replace ours and my husband is really into the idea of buying cast iron frying pan. It seems like to much work for me, tough. I've always used either stainless steel or teflon ones. What do you think? Is it worthy? And if you had to choose between teflon or stainless steel which would you buy?

Oh, and I was going to mention it in the other ask I sent but forgot. I have IBS and one thing that really helps me is chilean boldo infusion. Idk how easy it to find it where you live (the fresh leaves work best), but it’s something a lot of south-americans use to treat hepatic and gastrointestinal issues. (Fun fact: the nurse at my high school used to have a bottle of concentrated cold boldo infusion in the fridge to give to students who were hangover)

Thank you for that last little bit, it’s something I will bring up with my allergist/many doctors as a quick google tells me it could also help my gallstone/bile production issues. So thank you :)

And ooooh god not teflon, anything but teflon, firstly because I don’t like how they cook/retain heat, and secondly because of some of the health concerns that comes with what happens when teflon starts to break down and you start eating it/breathing it in. Y’all can call me a mad hippy over that if you want but when your immune system is as fragile as mine you’ll avoid anything at all that might harm it.

Both stainless steel and cast iron have their merits. 

Cast Iron

You are right in that the cast iron takes a little more work to upkeep—initially. After it’s been seasoned a few times and you don’t do things like soak it in water or scrub it with lemon juice, it’s going to become practically indestructible. There’s a reason you can still buy cast iron skillets in antique stores that just need a little bit of salt and oil to get them back in working order. If you maintain it right, your cast iron will likely outlive you by quite a few decades. I wipe mine clean after every use using waterand  a non acidic soap, dry it on a high heat, and then season lightly with some oil after each use. Once it starts to smoke, that’s you, you’re done seasoning. You only really have to do the salt and oil scrub if it loses the coating or if something gets burned onto it, or if you have rust spots, which happen form not being properly sealed. 

I will say, cast iron is hard to get used to working with at first, because of how differently you have to manage the way it conducts heat. Cast iron is great at retaining heat, which is what makes it great for searing meat and yes, even baking in, but you need to get it hot first, which can require about ten minutes of prep over a hot stove trying to ensure even heat coverage. (I throw mine in the oven for 20 mins)

That might seem like a lot of work, but given how well it retains the heat after that, it actually cooks things better. With stainless steel the output of heat is enough to sear the outside of something, but to cook say, a chicken in it (yes you can cook a whole chicken in a skillet) you’d need to keep it on the heat for longer for the heat to reach the middle, resulting in chewy over tough food. With cast iron, the heat output from it is so much better that it’s already starting to cook the rest of the bird while you’re searing it, resulting in less cook time, and hopefully a more juicy meat—as well as making the outside very nice and crispy. Cast iron is great for making things crispy.

That and you know, you can fight the Fae folk with it if the need arises.

Stainless Steel

There’s a common misconception that you can just throw things into a stainless steel pan and it’ll be fine. But the truth is if you want to maintain your stainless steel in good working condition, you will want to make sure it’s evenly oiled before any food touches it (Ask ETD about the time he made popcorn and ruined my pot because there wasn’t enough oil around the SIDES of the pot so the heat just obliterated everything and I had to buffer the pot to get it back to working condition, he felt so bad lol) and make sure that it is adequately preheated. Otherwise your food is just going to burn and stick to the base and it’s going to be a mother fucker to get it off. I’ve seen far too many people burn away the caramelization going on in their stainless steel pans because they don’t know how to heat/preheat with it. (note if your caramelization does get stuck, loosen it up with some water or better yet some stock, get that flavor back in your food yo!) Other than that, yea, once you get used to how stainless steel works and retains heat, it is lower energy when it comes to maintenance vs cast iron. Just don’t use cold salt water in them, or you risk pitting the pans. (As I have previously talked about)

Because you have mentioned you have IBS, I will stress the importance of trying to buy as high quality stainless steel as you can, as not all stainless steel is made equal. 

Surgical stainless steel is the safest as it is non porous, while a lot of the cheap stainless steel you can pick up (I’m thinking of places like Walmart and Target) can break down and leech into food during the cooking process. Stainless steel is an alloy made from a mix of metals including iron, chromium (is what keeps it from corroding) and nickel to name but a few components, and given nickel is a high allergy metal you don’t want that going into the foods of people who may be sensitive/allergic. (I had a friend find this out the hard way that that is what was going on with her)

The way I was taught to test the quality of the pan is by holding a magnet up to it. If it sticks? It’s typically going to be higher in nickel than you want it to be and could cause a possible health risk for people with nickel allergies. Nickel is also a carcinogenic and considered worse than aluminium which everyone and their dog is now trying to get away from because of the metal being linked to cancers and altzheimers, so, just something to keep in mind seen as how you already have a compromised gut <3 

(Also to those of you reading this now who are about to go check your pans: if it sticks? It’s not a cause for panic. Although if you have a known nickel allergy and you keep getting sick and you have no idea why…you may want to consider replacing your pans.)

There is also a third option available to you, which is ceramic pans. Which honestly have become my favorite frying pans to cook with. Due to their low metal content they will not work on induction stove tops, but if you’re using electric or gas you’re good to go.

Ceramic

They still don’t have the slippy non stick you get from teflon pans where flipping a pancake is akin to wielding a projectile weapon, but given how ceramic heats up and retains heat, they are pretty non stick and it makes them ideal for cooking with a lot of things. You also generally shouldn’t use metal utensils on them, because you can damage the glaze, but plastic, wood and silicone are fine.

They’re sort of like the easier to maintain version of cast iron in that regard and use less oil to cook with. (I personally would never fry eggs on stainless steel, meat and veg sure, but eggs need a surface that is more forgiving and ceramic was a god damn revolution to me. I speak from over a decade’s worth of experience of making breakfasts in restaurants and cafes) They are also great for throwing in the oven, and using as shallow casserole dishes, provided you make sure they are listed as oven safe. (Mine is good up to 350′f)

Due to the materials  they are made with, they are also pretty damn sturdy and hard to break, and you also can’t damage them by soaking them in water, which is also nice. You should not however cook on anything higher than a medium-high heat on them, whacking your heat up as far as you can with a ceramic pan is going to cause issues (it will cause issues with a lot of pans tbh, but you can generally get away with it for boiling water, just not in a ceramic pot), like breaking down the glaze quicker and ruining the non stick. You also should not take it from a hot stove and throw it in the sink right after cleaning. You really shouldn’t do that with any cooking utensil, but especially do not do it with ceramic as you might crack or even explode it. And no one wants that. 

Again, like stainless steel, not all ceramic pans are made equal and some will be made from cheap material/coated with an extra non stick layer to compensate for this, and they will break down faster/ruin your food, so keep that in mind if you do decide you want to look into them. Between the three, ceramic is in my experience the best, most easily maintained non stick without the health risks of teflon. It’ll also cost less in the long run, because you wont have to replace the pan as often as you would a teflon one.

I currently have the Green Pan Lima frying pans, which tbh I found a lot cheaper in an outlet mall than Amazon currently has it listed for, and I think Target might be selling them right now too for cheaper. It’s an excellent pan and I can get really crispy results with it due to how well it holds heat. I’ve also used it to bake with.

I have also used the Cuisinart ceramic range, which you can use metal on, but I sort of found the heat retention to be not as good as Green Pan Lima.

And then there’s also the Green Life range which tends to be cheaper and rather cute, even if it doesn’t feel quite as sturdy in my hands. (They currently have both the large and small pan on sale on Amazon for $30, which is pretty good)  I’ve got my eye on their ceramic bake ware sets though. I’m intrigued to see how they’d work out compared to my metal tins.

Anyway, I hope some of that was helpful for you, in weighing your options. Ultimately it’s about personal preference. I love all my pans, cast iron, stainless steel and ceramic, but it really depends on how much maintenance you are willing to put in, and how much you are willing to spend.

As for the rest of you, you now know more about cookware than you likely want to, but who knows, it might be useful for you one day :)

Every time my girlfriend starts seeing a new person she kind of forgets about her other partners, or maybe it’s just me, and I’ve tried to talk about it with her and she gets really upset and tells me I’m just being jealous and possessive which isn’t true. She stop paying attention to me, she talks less, seems uninterested, stops asking me to do things, and talks about the other person a lot. The relationships don’t last long but it still bothers me to be cast aside like that. Idk what to do.

This is a relatively well-known phenomenon in polyamory called New Relationship Energy, or NRE. I am of the belief that NRE is everyone’s responsible - the person experiencing NRE needs to manage it such that they aren’t being totally selfish, and the other partners need to recognize that this is part of the ebb and flow of a polyamorous relationship.

Dating a new person is, for some people, fun and exciting and thrilling in a very specific way. Some people don’t like this newness, because things like figuring out how to flirt and not being sure of the other person’s feelings is stressful and exhausting. Some people see the early-dating games as just things you have to get past to be in a comfortable, secure relationship. But, for other people, it is a pleasure that can be nearly impossible to experience inside a long-term relationship.

I am, personally, something of an NRE thrill-seeker. I like being pursued and pursuing; I like the little butterflies I feel when a new partner answers my text. With my partner of 9 years, I absolutely love and enjoy him, but it isn’t super exciting when he answers my texts, because I know he’s going to. I love short little flings, but I recognize that this is not a thing I can expect all my partners to intuitively understand.

The thing about a new relationship is that it does tend to take more time and focus than an established relationship. Rather than coming over and flopping around on the couch if we have nothing planned, new relationships require dates, which require planning and time. And a new person does occupy a lot of thought-space, daydreaming about them, thinking about when and how to answer their most recent message, etc. This necessarily takes time away from established partners.

So it sounds like what’s happening is that your partner really enjoys NRE, but doesn’t have the language to identify what it is and what’s important to her about it. Since she cherishes this feeling, when you ask her to minimize or drop the focus on new partners, she gets defensive and accuses you of being jealous or possessive, because from her perspective, you’re asking her to stop doing something she really enjoys and does not want to stop.

From your perspective, she is “casting you aside,” but from hers, she is just doing something fun with her time, and it doesn’t have anything to do with how she feels about you. It sounds like there is a lot of room for compromise on both sides. She does not owe you 100% of her time and focus, but she also doesn’t have the right to be dismissive or inconsiderate. When she’s enjoying an NRE-heavy fling with a new partner, perhaps you could make the request that she not talk about them with you, that she not be texting them while with you, etc. Whatever specific behavior she is doing that makes you feel like she’s not interested in you, bring that up.

You may also have to make the compromise of accepting that there will be periods where she’s less available to you - just as there would be if you had a partner who traveled often for work or had a very sick relative that they cared for. It sounds like she returns to you in the end and her affection for you at its core isn’t threatened by these flings, so setting up the expectation that sometimes she enjoys throwing herself into a new relationship and you may need to do more of the date-planning or see less of her for a while could help on your end.

Of course, if you find it really uncomfortable to date someone who is way more NRE-seeking than you and who needs the freedom to enter these periods of lower-availability, you are well within your rights to decide that this relationship isn’t for you. But I’ve found that in the case of NRE-induced friction, putting names to the feelings and clarifying expectations can really help.

I saw in the bio that requests were open so I wanna ask your opinion on what songs will represent RFA members+Saeran+V and why? ^^ I think that Jungkook's "Begin" will fit perfectly for Seven, as he sings about the brother and his emotions n stuff. Cx idk It would be interestinf to hear ya opinions!~ Love you both and love this blog!

Haha, thanks so much! We’re flattered:) Requests are closed at the moment (maybe our bio glitched or something) but we decided to do this one because it seemed really fun. Hope you like it and we’d love to hear other people’s thoughts!


Zen: Tender Love (EXO)

  • We strongly felt Zen would be an EXO song for some reason, haha. And we think this song reflects his relationship with MC.

Yoosung: Embarrassed/ Blanket Kick (BTS)

  • The whole child thing and kind of young love theme seemed really like Yoosung.

Jaehee: Lionheart (Girls’ Generation)

  • The MC in her route is really fiery and spunky, so we thought the dynamic between her and Jaehee is kind of reflected in this one.

Jumin: Wildflower (Park Hyo Shin)

  • Look up the lyrics to this one and it just screams Jumin! We just felt like it kind of portrayed the journey of Jumin changing with MC’s love and also slightly alludes to the reset theory.

Seven: Stigma- Taehyung (BTS)

  • The lyrics are all about him apologizing to his brother and how they had endure something he didn’t. We don’t know….it screams Seven though.

Saeran: Blue (Big Bang)

  • This song has a lot of elements of struggling with some trauma in the past. We felt like it was a good representation of Saeran’s potential struggle after Mint Eye.

V: Nobody Knows (Standing Egg)

  • This really represents his struggle with love and his whole ordeal with Rika. Also, it kind of speaks to V’s understanding of love kind of.

BONUS:

All the RFA- Eat (Ziont T.)

  • This one is self explanatory;)

So I saw you don't really like shipping Lapis with anyone but I've seen Jaspis and Lapidot as well with a couple other shipping art with her from you. I hope I'm sounding rude I'm not trying to off that way ;_; But your ok with drawing her with Peridot,Jasper, Pearl etc?

it is true that ive experimented with lapis ships before and drawn them a couple times, but ultimately ive come to the conclusion that i dont enjoy them and they make me really uncomfortable (for reasons i didnt understand at the time, and after more thought to the matter, do understand now). i feel that everyone should be able to explore ships theyre curious about and come to whatever conclusion feels right to them about any particular ship! 

as for lapis herself… to give you some insight, she reminds me of some really nasty people ive had the misfortune of knowing, so shes very unsettling to me. she’s capable of some really terrifying things and its all conveniently hidden under bows and flowing fabric and a delicate thin physique.

aaaaghgghhgh i know this is probably going to upset some people, but i feel like i at least owe it to you all to be honest about my feelings so you can maybe understand where im coming from a bit better! 

as for the content i draw (ive had a lot of asks like “why dont you ever draw this thing”), please remember i do this all for fun!! i choose to draw things that inspire me and seem interesting or challenging or just strike my fancy! jasper is my very favorite so… thats why shes in the majority of my art LOL. i do enjoy drawing other characters and ships, but most of the time im the happiest drawing her, so thats what i do! 

So hey I’m on mobile and I can’t put this 100% tiredness-induced rambling under a read more so sorry for that in advance oops.

  • Sneaking out late at night to meet at the park by your dorm for some ice cream or some hot cocoa/tea depending on the weather
  • Him letting you take all of the pictures of him you want
  • “You’re so cute that’s like the fifth picture you’ve taken of me you adorable lil teddy bear”
  • “You have a nice face what can I say”
  • “you are sO CUTE YOU CAN TAKE AS MANY AS YOU WANT”
  • He can make you laugh no matter what your mood is, where you are, what time it is 
  • But if it’s like really late and it’s at the point of night where everything is funny, he definitely gets a lot more laughter than usual, which is saying a lot bc he gets a lot of laughter out of you  
  • He of course understands when the moment’s appropriate for laughter and when it isn’t though
  • Like if he knows you need to have a serious talk or you need to just be held, he won’t try
  • But if he knows you just need a bit of cheering up, he’s not afraid to do what some people may think is embarrassing
  • Bc that’s one of the things I love about hobi, he doesn’t seem to care if people think he’s weird or if he does something that’s typically embarrassing, he just wants to have fun and make people happy
  • YOUR BIGGEST FAN
  • Hoseok is not a shy man
  • He has his moments just like any human but he’s typically super outgoing
  • I’m pretty sure there’s a legit compilation of him screaming if that isn’t fucking precious and hilarious, idk what is
  • But take that knowledge, add in the fact that his bby, his love, his cutie pie is in a successful group, he’s gonna be so !!
  • Buys literally piece of merch he can find
  • He will know e v e r y step to your choreography you can test him on it he’ll prove it
  • It turns into his new “touch my body”
  • No one really looks too far into it bc it’s just hobi being hobi in their eyes
  • Like hobi’s done a lot of dance covers in the middle of Bangtan bombs so when he does one for you, no one really thinks about it twice
  • Also on a more sentimental note, he does like leaving behind his favorite shirt for you and taking one of your sweatshirts with him on tour
  • It doesn’t even have to fit him, he mainly wants it so he can hold it tight against his chest while he sleeps
  • Plus it smells like you so it just overall is a nice lil reminder of what he gets to go home to
  • Also uses just about every pet name in the book
  • Babe, bby, sweetheart, love, cutie pie all of it
  • Bc he’s just so in love and wants you to feel all cute bc you are
  • He wouldn’t take horribly long to announce that you two are together
  • I’d say maybe around two years or so
  • He would make a log about his relationship
  • At first he doesn’t give any names so no one really knows it’s you but there have been suspicions ever since he was seen in the background of a Bangtan bomb with someone in the background that kinda looked like you
  • It was blurry and it was like a 0.5 second shot of your face but it was enough for your fans to actually notice
  • But they all forget about it until they release the log of him talking about his relationship, about how he was in love and even though it was difficult sometimes, it was always worth it when he saw you smile at him
  • He confirms it's you with a cute lil pic of you two right before a show
  • “My love came to support me !!!”
  • Two seconds later, he posts another one bc he thought you just looked adorable in it 
  • “ISNT MY BBY PRECIOUS MY FAVORITE LIL CUDDLY TEDDY BEAR”

idk if you've heard but joey is going to be on Arrow and they've cast liam hall to play him. your thoughts? do you have high hopes (or any hopes at all) for a live action joey?

it came up on my facebook feed a while back actually! i was pretty surprised; i don’t follow arrow at all but i was sure they’d said joey wasn’t going to be in it. maybe he’s been received well enough in the deathstroke comics lately for the showrunners to change their minds? 

the actor they’ve chosen isn’t to my taste at all (where are joey’s blond curls???), but i think the way the character is portrayed will take precedence over physical appearance - robbie amell is my favourite live-action fred jones, after all. if joey’s just another edgy vigilante with grant or rose’s personality then i won’t be interested, but if he’s truer to his classic self (and perhaps even has his disability?) then this could be a great step forward and i’d love to see where it goes.

i don’t know enough about DC’s TV-universe (is there a better name for that? flash and arrow and supergirl and so forth) to expect good or bad things, so i’m going to push this to the back of my mind until it actually happens. it’s too exhausting to hope, but a pleasant surprise would be very welcome!

Meet Soldier 63 (my friend is much more clever with names than I am, I was gonna call her Soldier 69)
This was way more fun to work on than it should have been since I have other things to work on, but they’re not Overwatch related and I’m in Overwatch hell :’)

I do have a version of her with the visor on that i’m going to finish tomorrow, idk why I gave her an eye patch it just seemed like a good idea

Imagine staying up late with bestfriend!Woozi to watch special airings of classic Halloween movies on television, while munching on a ton of snacks and candies.

hey how to start drawing SHIT if I am a beginner?

Art tips for anon who doesn’t know SHIT (slightly updated text and links since I didn’t actually answered to ‘how to start’ but rather gave many tips lmao):

  1. - Have a sketchbook. Or any drawing paper just so could have it with yourself at all times. Unless you’re Artgerm, who once in some interview have stated that he doesn’t doodle in a sketchbook, ever. I wish we all were him but we all can’t be him.
  2. - Doodle once in awhile, doesn’t have to be everyday but make it your goal. This is the best way to start. As children we all started off with doodling so why not to take it into another level when you are able to learn faster and more efficient with just doodling!
  3. - Less “Awh they’re so much better than me and they are YOUNGER than me :(” more: “Everyone is evolving at different pace and everyone are at different point in their journey. So what can I do to improve?”
  4. - Try to draw what makes you happy.
  5. - Take a moments in stretching your wrists.
  6. - (ノ◡‿◡)ノ~『✧・゚: *✧・゚:* Practice *:・゚✧*:・゚✧』
  7. - Keep a neat folder or a blog with pictures that inspire you.
  8. - There are things like /idea generators/. Look those up.
  9. - I know motivation is important but you need to also start learning how to do things when you don’t have it. Discipline yourself if you really want to reach some sort of “pro level” or you want to draw for a living in the future.
  10. - Doodle/draw with a pen/permanent marker. Trust me it healthy. (if you’re starting digitally - avoid ‘Ctrl+Z/Cmd-Z’)
  11. - You learn from mistakes ?? Like you will know next time what not to do. Like Bob Ross has said ‘’We don’t make mistakes we just have happy accidents.’’ So you either learn from them or try to adapt it into your advantage??? *
  12. - Reference photos are friends not foes.
  13. - Break complex forms (like dragons, insects, exotic birds, ect) into their basic shapes.
  14. - Try various mediums if you can (watercolour, pencils, gouache, oils, pastel, oil pastels, crayons, acrylics, plasticine, papier mache, glueing an image from coloured paper or magazine? idk it seems fun lmao, digital art, ect.).
  15. - Try new things if you feel brave enough (take up some 30 days challenge or theme challenges and you don’t even have to do them all).
  16. - Learn from others, figure out how they accomplished something you like and would like to apply to your own liking.
  17. - Try to ask other artists for advice/general tips.
  18. - Ask for critiques. Others might see things you have missed. As a beginner it is usually not on the mindset, more like being afraid of it an failure but critiques can really just help you see what is wrong in your artwork.
  19. - Don’t take criticism personally. It is a critique of an art work not the person behind it. So if you get some ‘’I don’t like it’’ for a critique, as in their personal taste, I let you punch them in the throat.
  20. - (ノ◕‿◕)ノ~『✧・゚: *✧・゚:* Practice *:・゚✧*:・゚✧』
  21. - Again. STRETCH.DAT.WRIST. Or you may have some serious health problems in the future. Stretching and taking breaks are crucial.
  22. - When drawing some original random characters or something like that. Make their designs somewhat believable. Doesn’t have to be just as same as in real life but it has to be fantasy-believable. It takes time to figure this one out but the earlier you learn about this the better for the future. Since if you take away all the decorative details off of your character’s design you might left off with some blond white guy wearing a shirt and some straight pants. Not extremely appealing.
  23. If you are suffering from “same face” check out this blog and this tutorial.
  24. - Don’t draw ladies in illogical, impractical, non-functional bikini/boob window/“bra” plate “armour”. That shit is everywhere and it sucks. It’s so damn boring not even that sexist it is just simply boring, unprofessional, lack of imagination. Unless you decided to draw men with some thongs as their ‘armour’ then please, be free to draw both like that but if your design choices are like that please get out of my face and go to the pit of shame.
  25. - Sycra’s ‘Foundations of Light and Shadow’ is some good stuff, my friend.*
  26. - When colouring. Remember that each colour looks a bit different near/surrounded by other colours. For example: grey is a neutral colour but will seem warm being besides or surrounded with cool colours like blue AND yet the same grey will appear cool next to warm tones of oranges or reds. So if you see someone say “light skinned men lower part of the face is more blue than their forehead/middle part” please don’t use actual blue but just make it more neutral/to the grey area.
  27. - If light source is warm (sun or fire) then shadows will look cooler. If light source is cool(most of artificial lightings) then shadows appear warmer.I already mentioned how grey appears near different colours so this is the same the lighter area appear more warm or cool depending on the light source while the shadows stays usually /neutral/ I mean there can be more than one light source, or depends from the weather outside, ect.
  28. - Really do not shade with black and white. That is unrealistic and mostly boring. You can check that with put a white paper close to a bright light source, put something white on that paper and near that object put some bright red object, the white object will have shades of red on it’s side. So would you choose to draw that shadow with still only shades of black? or add red? Same for objects outside, the sky is blue, the shadows becomes more blue, the sun is emitting warm light so shadows already looked cooler. Just to colouring there are so many things.
  29. - People’s skin have different undertones. It can be orange, red, purple, yellow in almost any ethnicity (you can figure it out when looking at the skin w/o direct sunlight or in the shadows). ∩(︶▽︶)∩ *
  30. - Do not forget about different possibilities for lighting: strong lighting, night lights, light from behind, ambient light, light from below, different colour lights and even underwater.
  31. - Things in focal points are more detailed, sharpest edges, highest value contrast while everything else can be blurred and faded out. *
  32. - Wet objects are darker and shinier if the surface is smooth enough and there is enough of water).
  33. - Clothes has folds and different textures which determine the “highlight” which usually doesn’t exist on clothes but people draws those as if it’s some latex.
  34. - (ノ⊙‿⊙)ノ~『✧・゚: *✧・゚:* PRACTICE *:・゚✧*:・゚✧』
  35. -If you’re digital art rookie then FLIP THE IMAGE HORIZONTALLY.
  36. - Thumbnailing is the best (think of some film with great cinematography/composition - draw as many scenes as you can from that movie).
  37. - When you think you’re done. Take a picture of it with your phone. You will know if it’s really done or not (doesn’t matter if it’s a traditional or digital art work).
  38. - Check values with either taking a picture and making it black and white or digitally with desaturation(sai)/‘colour’ mode black layer (Photoshop).
  39. - Use guide/leading “lines” so your drawing isn’t all over the place and you don’t know where to look. Make the viewer look at that one most important point. *

Y'all weak, don't fucking come at me with this 'cringey past' shit. When I was in 6th grade l I got into Sonic and had a friend who was also into Sonic and I made up this weird as fuck thing about how when I went to sleep I had a secret double life crossing dimensions and living in Sonic's world and just kept alternating every day like that, and genuinely tried to convince my friend of this that this was real, and kept it up for like the entire year, I nearly believed it myself.

Man idk that just seems like being a kid. i envy being able to immerse myself in something like that entirely like i used to do shit like that but star wars and it was so fun

ok rant time
-
Can we just??? Talk about the people in the pillow room that are like “drama!!!” when someone is literally bullying someone else??? Like what’s your problem? Someone’s getting made fun of/whatever, and people are trying to stick up for them and all you have to say is “drama!!!”?? Like no!!! We dont do that irl?? So you’re just gonna sit there instead of trying to stick up for someone? It would be different if, say, they just came in and sat down, and not have said anything, but they acknowledge that someone is getting harassed!!! Like?? Come on??? Either do something about it or go somewhere else??? idk man, it just seems like a rude thing to me??
