idk so i will add more

I have kind of a weird crush on my brother’s friend who’ve I’ve only met 3 or so times, but I think it kind of stems from the fact that he’s gay and I’ve had trouble with my sexuality. I don’t know him that well, but the fact that he’s my brother’s friend means he’s a nice person, and I kind of want to talk about that stuff with him because I don’t know anyone else who has gone through that sort of stuff. I don’t have that many friends. I’ve only really started getting to know people 1/?

I need to meet more people and stuff. So I’m kind of in a situation where it’s cool to hang out and talk about that sort of stuff, but at the same time move on and get to know people. I feel also like that the guy may not want to talk about that sort of stuff with me (idk ok). He did happen to add me on FB and IG as well as liking one of my posts so there’s always that…. in a way it’s more of an admiration crush 3/3 

Hey there! Sadly, part two is missing and isn’t in my inbox, but feel free to send it to me again though. :)

So I don’t have the entire picture here, but I get the general idea, I think. And I think that it’s very important to keep in mind; in the beginning, crushes are always awkward. Just like making new friends is always awkward. Of course there are those wonderful exceptions, but 90% of the time it all starts with awkward awkward awkward when you’re trying to form new meaningful relationships. And it’s easy for anyone to say “oh well, you just have to put yourself out there more”, but especially when you’re not that kind of person, it’s all easier said than done. 

Don’t feel weird about taking your time, about doing things at your own pace. Especially when you’re struggling with your sexuality, even when you desperately want to talk about it with someone, it’s not something you’d trust everyone and their grandma with, even if that someone is in the same situation or could probably relate, and that’s okay. 

As for the guy you like; see where it goes. You don’t have to force anything, but since he added you on several social media sites, that means that there are many harmless ways to interact with each other without it being weird. Start there, and when/if things get more natural and comfortable between you two, you can always still decide to take it one step further. Or maybe you’ll find out that it’s nothing more than what you mentioned; an admiration crush. And that’s alright too. 

Just don’t ever push yourself too far, too soon. Whether it’s acting on that crush, or making new friends, or coming out. 

I really hope everything works out for you, and remember that you’re fabulous! :D

if bea was a lesbian i feel thatd add to the themes of the game in a way? cuz in small towns (and in any area but especially small towns) lgbt people tend to band together and i think itd add a little more to the themes plus add more reasons for bea to be frustrated running the shop. not to mention i just love maebea and i wish it was canon. (also kinda related to this: idk if they added stuff about it in the game since the weird autumn update but jackie is canonically a trans woman!)

god yeah… just. bea being the only lesbian in town and having to deal with being almost entirely closeted so she can survive. and her wanting to escape to Go Off To School - i think a lot of gay teens hold college up as like, the place you’re finally able to Be Gay at. i know i did. but then she’s just Stuck, and there’s no other wlw (that she knows) in town, and just feeling so isolated and out of place, but also it’s her town, and… yeah.

that would also add some nice dimension to her being good friends with angus - she says during the epilogue that before mae came back, she hung out with angus and gregg a lot. the only other gay people in town… and also the only people she’s out to, basically.

and yeah they did!!!! twogth >:)

hey guys here’s my review of how much various horror movies fit their titles

scream: there is a respectable amount of screaming. could have been called “guy in a screamy mask with a knife” but they took a risk with the title and I respect that 7/10

the descent: there is a good amount of descending in this movie 8/10

it follows: it does, in fact, follow 9/10

Oculus: dumb. Idk what oculus means and I don’t care. shld have been called “murder mirror” 0/10

the babadook: movie is based around an entity known as the babadook. very good 10/10

creep: I guess the guy is fairly creepy, but I i wish the title was a little more specific. Work the wolf mask in there next time 5/10

the exorcist: there is an exorcist 8/10

the houses that October built: October can’t build houses. It’s a month. Idiots. 2/10 because it does, at least, take place in October

silent hill: I don’t think there are any hills that are more silent than the average hill in this movie 1/10

paranormal activity: there is activity that is fairly paranormal 9/10

the blair witch project: I guess what they’re doing could be counted as a project, and it DOES involve the blair witch, but I’d call it more of a “documentary” than a “project” 7/10

split: there are, to the best of my knowledge, no splits of either the gymnastic or banana variety in this movie 0/10

the midnight meat train: there is a train at midnight, and some meat themes throughout the movie, but the train itself is not filled with meat 6/10

the conjuring: nothing is actually conjured. they’re actually trying to get rid of something, which is like. the opposite of conjuring -100/10

quick proportion tips

- eyeballs are an eyeball width apart
- ears align with the top of your brows to the bottom of your nose, and are the center-point of a profile view
- lip corners line up to the center of each eye
- hands are roughly the size of your face
- feet are the same size as your forearm
- elbows are aligned with your belly-button
- your hands reach down mid-length of your thighs
- both upper and lower legs (individually) are roughly the same size as your torso 
(this is all rough estimates for proportion! feel free to add more to help others)

I hope you don't mind me asking, you do your shadows so well and was wondering how you do them?! They set such an incredible dark mood, it makes your artwork instantly recognizable!! Thanks for your time <3

Im pretty shit at explaining things so i’ll use this for basic example. Firstly if you know how shadows work and stuff then it shouldnt be to hard. Otherwise go study that shit. 

So you got your flat colors down for the first step

Next lay down a dark tone set to multiply, idk about 70% i guess? up to you

Start adding some shadows set on another multiply, shadows can be however dark. 50-70%

The add your light source, i used color dodge in this one. Dont use super bright color or it will look like blinding light. (again if you know light/shadows shouldnt be to hard)

I add a touch more dark in the shadows for effect…or something like that. 

And there you have it, this maybe helpful lesson was brought to you by a potato, chur.

Okay but consider a Mass Effect Andromeda where the Ryder family stays whole. Alec doesn’t die, the second Ryder twin doesn’t end up in a coma. 

Imagine Pathfinder Alec Ryder getting to actually be a pathfinder, but also having to cope with his two children who are both canonically huge dorks. 

Consider Alec trying to be diplomatic while his two grown ass children are behind him getting into a silent slap fight over who gets to ride shotgun in the nomad. 

Consider Alec “so emotionally constipated he’s shitting out diamonds” Ryder having to deal with Jaal “I’ve known you for ten seconds let’s talk about our feelings because the angaran social filter is nothing like yours” Ama Darav. 

Consider Alec having to constantly put himself between Reyes and whichever offspring has come with him because the guy will not stop flirting and this man is a criminal and we only need him for his connections, stop winking back.

Imagine Alec bonding with Evfra over the difficulties of leadership in an impossible situation, and having the lives of an entire species depending on your success.

Now imagine that scene but it keeps cutting to Scott and Sara daring each other to eat the weird alien food. 

Drak offering Alec parenting advice!!!!! 

Alec putting Peebee in time out until she can behave herself. 

Alec putting on his Parent Voice when Gil and Kallo fight – it’s not even on purpose, they just sound so much like bickering children.

Alec having to deal with the fallout from the disastrous beginnings of the initiative – would fewer people attack him to his face? He’s certainly a lot scarier and a lot more intimidating than the canon pathfinder is. 

Imagine Alec walking in on one or both of his children making out with their love interest. Imagine that ride on the Nomad.

Jaal trying to talk to Alec about it to reassure him of the true depth of feelings he has for Sara but Alec Does Not Want To Have This Conversation. Cora loves Scott but oh god she’s sleeping with her mentor’s son and he knows but he isn’t saying anything why isn’t he saying anything.  Liam practically climbing under the table whenever Alec enters the room because he’s sure his boss is going to space him for making out with his daughter.

Sahuna Ama Darav emailing Alec because “we’re going to be inlaws let’s talk about medical histories and plans for grandchildren!!!”

so i was rewatching s 1 ep 5 (lol) idk if this has ever been brought up but i noticed when after the team defeats sendak pidge helps shiro and keith helps lance. (seen in the picture below)

 now, yeah thats a given but i started thinking about it more and this scene is just so out of wack that it honestly just adds another point for klance. now youre probably thinking “well i mean thats just a given and of course it adds points for klance.” but hear me out 

as a given, we know that keith and shiro have a very strong relationship and keith is really attached to shiro. keith always has shiros back and is his right hand man. so in a situation like this it should be a given that keith would be at shiros side in a heartbeat. but…. that isnt the case here which doesnt make one ounce of sense. yeah, even though pidge was at shiros side and wanted to help her fellow paladin, pidge knows how much shiro means to keith, so wouldnt she give them space and help her garrison bud instead? but she doesnt for some odd reason. 

though, the most oddest part of this whole scene though is how keith reacts. he doesnt seem to worry about shiro too much, which isnt a bad or good thing, its just weird that keith wouldnt even go to shiros side or at least check on him. keith couldve easily said to pidge “ill check on shiro, you make sure lance is okay.” but he didnt. he was totally fine going to lance even though he always seems irritated with lance. 

then this happens:

keith literally starts holding his hand. now look at these pictures of shiro and pidge and keith and lance from the same screencap:

with shiro and pidge it seems like a normal teammate helping out another one, but keith and lance on the other side…. its a little different. i know it shouldnt be a big deal but honestly its the little things that make a big difference. especially knowing that keith and lance always bicker with each other.

i think the importance of this scene is the turning point of keith and lances relationship. in the very beginning of vld, their relationship was a more shaky, but after this scene, this moment, everything changed. keith started getting jealous over lance, their weird flirting thing that they have really took off, we got to see them work more with each other, and actually being a really good team with a strong bond.

in conclusion: this scene is really goddamn gay (well it is but) this scene is so damn important and is what started everything. 

Hands

As I do with most things, I draw hands from a series of gesture strokes that insinuate the pose and shape I want. Something I personally find very appealing about hands are all the joints, bends, and crooked bits so I start with those and build the rounder, meaty bits from there.

In the first two steps here if you just look at the individual strokes I’ve drawn, you can see they’re just some curves, really, that sketch out the shape of the hand, and I’m focusing on the joints and knuckles. (The fingertips in the second one are actually rly unnecessary and ugly to me haha – that’s usually the kind of thing I’d just throw down in step 3.)

And again below, just starting w/ some curves and squigglies to show the joints and knuckles:

These hands are by no means realistic or fully proportional but drawing’s supposed to be fun and these are really fun! I’m like, really not about that whole “draw a box and then the little tubes and those are the fingers” thing. It’s too technical and so much life gets lost when you sketch that way. Maybe it’s helpful for a pose you’re uncertain about but then just look at a photo or your own hand to see how things work, y’know?

Something else I’m really about is using shading and line to emphasize the bends and stuff even after I’ve got the hand down:

The first image here you can tell the fingers are bent, but they also look lumpy imo. To stylize further, I add some thin lines for the joints and fingernails, and then shade for some extra depth + to pronounce the foreshortening etc. (Fingers are so ugly from this angle! But we gotta draw them like this sometimes…)

Some examples where these extra lines assist in conveying the shape:

And shading:

(Bottom right is the same pose as a previous example which I didn’t realize till now sorry haha)

Some general tips:

- Use asymmetry!!! When the joints don’t line up exactly right, or you’ve drawn two hands doing the same thing but idk one’s curled a little bit more or the right pinky sticks out but the left doesn’t – these little touches make the drawing more dynamic, even if the general pose/concept is flat.

- Thumbs are really cool? They’re like trapezoidal. The same tapering thing kinda happens where the hand meets the wrist. A hand is like a big thumb

- Two things that a lot of beginner artists get wrong: which side the thumb is on (…always double-check…I still double-check sometimes too), and drawing the fingers straight instead of slightly bent when trying to draw a relaxed hand. Relaxed fingers curl! And this is much easier to draw imo than perfectly tense fingers

- Study your own hands and think about their shape. Part of developing a style + comfort with drawing a particular thing is how you choose to simplify the form thru line. I explained above that I focus on the joints and knuckles and seek to simplify those with curves and squiggles but maybe you’re more interested in a different aspect. (Like, you can see I don’t draw palms v much…that’s cuz I like knuckles haha)

Hope this is helpful/feel free to ask followup questions!

If you’re writing fanfic about traveling the mojave here are a few pointers

- sand everywhere in everything always

- very very hot days during summer with (usually) warm nights and very very cold nights with nice crisp day temperatures during winter, spring and fall are hot days with freezing nights

- wind. dust storms. Looser the sand the worse. Theres a mod that adds those in, its accurate

- rare, but flash floods that can be pretty terrifying. A mod cant really add water currents but if youre stuck in a wash during one you will probably die

- i mean it about the sand, it will be in everything that isnt sealed air tight. Mojave food seasoning. Mojave dry shampoo. Mojave dirt bath.

- whatever the endurance of the character, theyre going to eat more walking the mojave. idk if its just me but i usually eat 3x more when im in the desert.

- clothes… loose clothes that cover full body are the best… shorts and a tank top, not so much, unless sunscreen survived…which hey it couldve

- random abandoned mines and abandoned shacks are a real thing. They arent sooo close and easy to find as in fnv, but that is a desert thing not a game thing. Also abandoned gas stations, random restaurants in the middle of nowhere, ect

-idk if every bug mutated to be huge, but there are a lot of those.

Discreet(ish) ways to stim

The popularity of fidget toys has caused many schools to ban them.
If you need to stim or fidget during class and you cant be exempt from the ban i have a list of things that might work.

- theres a $24 fidget pen online. It has some of the features of the cubes and you can buy ink refills. I highly doubt a teacher is going to take it away.

- a metal nut. You can spin the metal textured piece around using your thumb. It does make noise so be careful.

- pen caps. Most people chew on pen caps or straws so this shouldnt be too out of the blue.

- fabric bracelets. I have this yellow one with a giant weave texture to it. There’s many ways to stim with this so find a way that works.

- chew necklaces. Classic stim. May not be completely discreet but i dont see these getting banned.

- stress ball. Hide it in your pocket and squeeze when you get frustrated. These have be banned in some schools so be careful.

- diy tangles. A friend gave me a necklace made of out the rubber band loom stuff. It works great as a tangle. Kind of obvious but it works.

- your clothes. There might be a seam that feels nice to rub.

- make up wedges. They have the best texture. Squeeze squeeze.

- mini stuffed animals. Hide in pocket. Instant comfort.

- feathers. Stroking a feather is nice.

Thats all i can come up with. Suggestions are welcomed and you can add more ideas to this post.

Bee & Puppycat AU! I havnt decided whose gonna be puppycat but im thinking the blue lion?

so lance likes to make things with keith, whether it be cooking or making actually working small airplanes to play with, but soon shiros like “hey keith when are you gonna go to the garrison?” and hes like “um i kinda wanna stay here with lance. the garrison is so far away…” and lance finds the blue lion and starts doing small jobs throughout the universe to get money cause he poor. he likes to watch cooking with hunk (pretty patrick) and lives on pidges property (idk how she owns it tho) and pidge is trying to wake her brother and father who have been alseep for a while (from the new episode if u dont get it) ill probs add more stories and comics later but yeah this is what ive got so far!

I’ll be tagging all my Bee and Puppycat Voltron AU stuff as #bapvoltronau

NEW MIRACULOUS SEASON 2 TRAILER IS OUT

Here’s what I noticed

Apparently the staff ship them

What even is this

This villain looks like Adrian’s Dad which would conflict with him being HawkMoth, but idk I just want the new season

Like look it’s in his house, so either he can be both, he’s only hawkmoth and that’s an imposter like with copy cat, or that is Adrian’s Dad and hawk moth is someone else

You alright, ladybug?!?!

New cute Villan, butler turned into a teddy bear!

Also saw ladybug fighting chat noir, so some one must have gotten controlled again looking at you chat.

Feel free to add more and spread to let other know of what’s to come~!

It might be a while till I get back to this so here’s a WIP… a post-Kira battle scene where Okuyasu, Jotaro and Joseph/Shizuka wait in the hospital to hear about Josuke’s condition after he passes out from too much blood loss. (admittedly what made me want to draw this scene was the idea of Jotaro covering Oku with his coat as he sleeps. I need more Jotaro being nice to Oku art in my life!)

(It-it looks better on the actual paper, I promise! 😅😅) I’m gonna do one more thing of fanart and then do some of my own drawings for a bit. I want to make more original art, but fan art is so much fun as well! So maybe after some original ideas, maybe. But here is some good ol’ @crankgameplays, I attempted to draw some realistic shots from his videos! I found the one on the left in an edit, and told myself “I MUST draw this great capture”, so I did ^^ Decided to add him with makeup just because I find it funny and cool. Tbh, I kinda think his dolled up face could be an ego? I call him Queen Airel (Arrel, idk how to spell it 😂) but I’m glad these turned out okay! Hope you guys enjoy this! I promise I’ll make my own stuff for you all to see! Hope you enjoy! Love y’all! ✨💕

Humans are absurdly overengineered generalists

Humans are proportionally weak compared to arthropods, they’re slow compared to horses/wolves, they’re dumb compared to Artificial Intelligence, they’re fragile compared to megafauna like elephants, their socialization is nonexistant compared to true eusocial/pack species, and they’re clumsy compared to octopodes.  They’re not bad at anything, however, and they can repurpose a skill for anything (e.g. they can socialize with strangers, they can reuse domain specific knowledge for other stuff, they can use one type of movement for a lot of tasks, etc) which is not super common.  Most importantly, though, humans can continue functioning after almost any injury.

leg bones? There are 2, so breaking one is no more than an inconvenience in the short term until the endorphins wear off.

lungs? Again, theyre redundant.  Function can be temporarily restored with TAPE!

Tendons/ligaments?  Those are redundant too!

WE CAN EVEN FUNCTION THROUGH SEVERE BRAIN DAMAGE

IDK what aliens would think of us, between “what kind of idiot would design that?” and “thats so cool, what excuse/purpose can we find for one as a crewmember?”
