if I can make this work

“I like working with people who are kind, above all else. I don’t really want to work with someone who will manipulate me. The idea that you must treat actors a certain way in order to get a performance out of them kind of disturbs me, and it’s disregarding what we do. Our job is to do our job. I don’t believe that directors need to essentially manipulate actors into doing things. You can suffer for your art, and you can make your own self suffer for your art. You don’t need anyone else to do it for you.” 

Kermit: Christmas isn’t for another three weeks

Hooded Kermit: Post @themoonxii ‘s gift anyway.

I really, really had to restrain myself just to wait until December to post this, but it is the season for Persephone to go back to Hades, so it still fits. 

I asked @noxogoth if she could do Kylux in a sort of modern Hades and Persephone aesthetic and she gave me a 14/10 picture. She was incredibly prompt, asked lots of questions to make sure it was just right, and is not just a pleasure to work with, but a pleasure to follow and start talking to regularly. Snap up her commissions if you can get them!

themoonxii endures my constant enthusiasm, is there for me when I’m a head case, and reads everything I write, good or bad. <3

  • Sombra: Looks like all Overwatch’s records are here, I just don’t have the access to delete them. I’m trying to work around that right now.
  • Reaper: Ooh, try hacking the mainframe.
  • Sombra: This isn’t a mainframe system.
  • Reaper: How ‘bout cracking it, would cracking it work?
  • Sombra: Reaper, shut up! Stop making suggestions when you have no idea what you’re talking about.
  • Reaper: Well, if you want help-
  • Sombra: I don’t want help.
  • Reaper: Maybe you should explain what’s going on, and I could make an educated suggestion.
  • Sombra: Educated? Okay, fine. This computer is a dedicated interface with a highly developed security protocol. The information we are accessing is stored on a separate database with its own dedicated hardware. That system has its own distinct layer of security. From what I can tell, the two systems verify their identities by trading randomly generated two thousand fifty six bit encryption keys. I’m trying’ to spoof one of those keys right now. So, Reaper. I’m all ears. Any suggestions?
  • Reaper: Oh yeah, I’ve seen that before. You should try uploading a virus to the mainframe.
  • Sombra: Jesus.
  • Reaper: I find viruses that feature a laughing skull tend to work the best.
  • Sombra: Shut the fuck up, and let me work!

I’m well aware that there are a lot of groups with vocals much stronger than those of BTS. Still that shouldn’t make you bash them and say they don’t deserve success. Idk have you ever been told you don’t deserve appreciation or recognition? Can you imagine what a hurtful comment this is? BTS still works as hard as any other group and they are really skilled in dance rap and producing so please don’t be so hateful. They read comments on SNS. They read your hate. They see you slandering them.

I work at an electronics store and when people come in to buy computers there's all sorts of other shit we're supposed to sell them as well, like antivirus and Office and cloud and a "care plan" etc etc etc. My manager has been really pissy when we don't deliver, to the point that my brain has done what it normally does when something's making me anxious and completely shut down against it, so I literally can't care any more :/ good job management that's gonna help me perform well :/

How is it you make Albus look so innocent? I don't know how, but Albus looks more innocent, and so does Scorpius? How did you achieve that?

oh haha! ^^ Well, first of all, that’s so so awesome to hear!! I DO want them to look sweet and innocent, it’s one of the main things that I hope can separate my Scorbus and Drarry! I just want Scorbus to FEEL different, I want Albus to FEEL different from Harry, and Scorpius from Draco, even though they might look alike :) So I assume that it sort of works? Which is amazing!! Because that’s basically all I want in my drawings of Scorpius and Albus! :3
But I don’t really know how I achieve that? :D I just try to make their faces look kinder, sort of pouty, softer features (cuter noses, sympathetic eyes/brows), etc. :) So maybe that’s what makes the difference!

Okay but like

Imagine Marinette and Adrien in the first parts of their relationship where they’re still figuring out how the other works. Marinette, I can guarantee, would be a blushy, stuttering mess. 

HC Adrien is a model so he has some eXPERIENCE WITH WOO-ing THE LADIES (also anime) SO THIS BOY AIN’T AS PURE AS MARINETTE THOUGHT.

Adrien makes one little peck to her neck while they’re hugging and tHAT GIRL SQUEAKS. A LITTLE EEP WILL COME OUT AND SHE’LL BE SO RED. 

Marinette is a fucking romantic but she can’t handle the heat. However, she won’t get out of the kitchen. So she’s just gonna have to be there and mELT over every gesture he makes; Kissing her knuckles, back rubs, and playing with her hair. She’s probably such a fucking virgin(likeme) that she’ll be a puddle of goop. Honestly this girl is too fucking pure for her own good. 

Oh my gosh thOSE TWO WILL BE SO DORKY. 

Adrien will come over while she’s watching Manon and those two will cuddle while Manon watches her favorite cartoon or something. 

O H HE COULD HELP HER REPLACE LIGHTBULBS IN HER ROOM BC SHE’S TOO SHORT TO DO IT ALONE. Those two could just go around her house fixing stuff. OR PUTTING UP CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS TOGETHER.

Tips to pass and/or look older.

I gave someone passing/looking older tips earlier who’s pre-T, so I figured I’d share them here too on the off chance it’d help someone. Especially since I’ve noticed a lot of passing guides never really mention the use of make up, and I think a lot of trans men also don’t realize make up can be used to help you pass.  

1. This is my number one tip to both ftm’s and mtf’s, DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR EYEBROWS. Eyebrows seriously can make all the difference. Eyebrows literally are the difference between me passing and not passing. Since this is directed at Ftm’s though: Darken your eyebrows with mascara. Be gentle though, because it can make you lose eyebrow hair. Preferably use a brush that’s thick with a lot of bristles works best in my case. Go for dark brown instead of black. Sometimes black ends up looking odd, but don’t be afraid to experiment. 

 2. Darken your chin hairs with mascara. Even afab people have a small amount of soft and light facial hair. If you don’t have much existing facial hair, I find black with a small brush like this works best: [Link] If you have facial hair, a dark brown with something like the yellow one or one second from the right works best in my experience: [Link]. Go slow and try to not touch the skin too much. Takes some practice, but if you do the very bottom of your chin and maybe even along your jaw it’ll help people read you as older/male. Don’t overdo it, because it will look fake if you overdo it. It’s good for creating just enough facial hair to tip you over to male, but don’t expect a beard.  

3. Cut/shave your hairline into a move square or subtle M shape. Look up pictures of male v female hairlines to see what you’re going for. Styling your hair in a way that makes this more noticeable will help too. This is good for guys who can’t cut their hair or don’t want to. You may want to go to a barber shop for a male haircut as well. If you don’t go to a barber shop, and maybe even if you do, make sure to really stress you really, truly do want a male haircut, because sometimes hair stylists will think, “They really don’t want a guy haircut, I’ll give them a short female cut.” 

 4. Shave your face. Even if you don’t have facial hair, getting rid of the soft, light hairs actually helps somewhat. Your face will feel weird and rubbery in the shower, but that’s normal.

 5. This takes a bit more effort, but you could try masculine contouring. It’ll help make your face more masc. I always recommend trying this to people who are unsure about their dysphoria and trans status. Google “masculine contouring” for guides, especially for your face shape. 

 6. If you’re short, look into shoe lifts. They’re like $10 on Amazon. They range from .5"-3". You can also do things like training yourself to have better posture and getting shoes with higher platforms to help too ofc. The downside to shoe lifts is they can be bad for your back, especially if you have existing back pain or problems. Be responsible and use common sense with them. Don’t wear them for extended periods, moderation, start slow to see how your body takes them, give yourself breaks, stretch, get good rest, and just take care of yourself.

 7. Drink plenty of water. Making sure you aren’t retaining water helps thin your face out, which I’ve found helps a lot. I recommend a ketogenic diet for really cutting the water retention and helping with weight loss (which also helps with passing), but you can also look into other natural ways to relieve water retention. Do NOT use water pills unless you are suffering from excessive water retention.  (Some are also just expensive caffeine pills as well.)

8. If you can’t afford or can’t access and binder, buying control tights, cutting off the legs, and making a hole for your head makes a great DIY binder. It works best for people with smaller chests as it won’t flatten you out like a binder does. 

9. A lot of guys don’t realize that your voice isn’t all just T. I think that’s the reason the “FtM’s sound like little people” type stereotypes exist. You have to adapt to your new voice. You will want to speak from a lower point in your throat and put more emphasis on your voice from your chest if possible. It requires practice. It helps if you hum and gradually lower the pitch of the hum. Once it’s as low as you can comfortably get it, speak. Play with it. It’ll help you figure out how to talk and from where. These tips can help if you’re pre-T as well. It might not make you sound male, but it can make you sound androgynous or less feminine. 

10. Slightly furrowing your brow can help give the appearance of a brow ridge and smaller eyes, a male sex characteristic. 

11. Males have smaller upper lips and slightly paler lips. You can google for guides on how to achieve a smaller lip look with make up. 

I’ll edit this if I think of anything else.

Miz is really amazing and underrated. He is an unabashed heel. People like Kevin Owens and AJ Styles are amazing. But they do not get boos like Miz does. They don't have amazing managers like Maryse who pull the trickiest moved in the books to get the win. Miz and Maryse are amazing and I will boo them loudly every time because they've earned their boos with sweat and blood.

I love love love the true pure heels like the Miz so much–the people who seem to have no interest in winning people over intellectually with their skill; they’re here to make the story work and they’ll be just as scummy and cowardly as it takes to do it.  There’s an amazing surreptitious sort of altruism to that, and like you I’ll get into booing Miz just as hard as I can, he deserves it!

Okay Award season is over, gotta work on the Christmas albums. @realbighit this was fun, yall did great, we did great, @officialygfamilies congrats on that Black Pink win, hopefully you’ll have more groups to rival the others @officialjypnation be proud of your girls because that was great. Congrats on song of the year.

To all the other groups with companies we can’t tag, congrats you all did well. Let’s make 2k17 a fierce year with great songs, dances and collabs and let the games begin again.

Thank you so much for participating today, let’s continue to have a lot of fun and share the love of Kpop in all parts of world.

This is Admin Ty telling you have a wonderful morning/evening/night from Officialsmtown ♡

David, I noticed they have been speaking a lot of Kryptonian & Martian on Supergirl this season, and last week a few words in the alien Dominators' language on several of the DC Arrowverse shows. I haven't been able to find a credit for who was responsible for the conlang dialog. And then I remembered you work for the CW! Any chance you were the culprit? If so, can you talk about any of it? Or if not, do you know who was involved? Did they get Christine to do the Kryptonian stuff? Cheers, Gray

Not me, and not Christine. Remember that Supergirl started out as a CBS show. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re just making stuff up.

Inch by Inch

[I got a request! Actually I got two requests in the same day, I couldn’t believe it. I’ll be working on the other one next, and I, ugh, I just hope their good. I picture it in my head and I can see it but I don’t know….But enjoy!]

“ – and after that he just wouldn’t stop laughing. I swear those boys are crazy, they have to get it from Will’s side of the family.”

You laughed, watching the screen of JJ’s phone as she showed a video of Henry making silly faces at Michael; the little toddler waving his chubby arms and squealing in delight with each contortion.  

“It’s so adorable, Henry was made to be a big brother. Thinking about having another one soon? Maybe a little girl this time so Garcia and I have someone to dress up and have tea parties with finally?”

You and Garcia had talked about that while JJ was pregnant with Michael. Both of you fantasizing over the clothes and toys you could buy for a baby girl. But with the bulge of shock coming from JJ’s eyes you knew that possibility was a ways away.

“I think I’m good for right now on the baby front. Maybe you two could just dress up each other. Right Spence?”

“Hmmm?”

Glancing over next to you, Spencer blinked his eyes blearily. “Have you slept at all during this case?”

Child abductions had been happening in a small area of Wisconsin, and with no similarities between victims, Spencer had been the one to piece together that though they had no physical similarities, the children were all on the same medication. Leading them to the unsub which was the doctor that had prescribed them. But during that time you doubted the genius had used his bed even once, now beginning to nod in and out on the jet.

“I slept some. Just really tired now that it’s over.”

“Want a blanket?”

“No, no I’m good, thanks.”

JJ’s eyes crinkled. “Well, you need to be a little careful there, Spence, with the way you’re swaying you’re going to bop into Y/N’s skull.”

“Oh, hush, he’s fine. Go back to sleep, Spencer.”

“Hmm?”

“Oh, he’s gone.”

You laughed. “I’d say so. Hey, pass me some of those Cheetos.”

“You have three steps to the kitchen, get your own.”

“Don’t be like that, JJ, I always share with you. I’m only asking for a few – oh.”

During your debacle Spencer had decided to face plant onto your shoulder, and like JJ had predicted the thud of his skull had sent a sharp signal of pain up to you.

“How did he not wake up from that?”

“I have no clue. Should we wake him?”

You shook your head. “No harm in letting him lay there. Kind of feels nice if you discount the bruise I’ll have tomorrow.”

With that the two of you carried on your conversation, sneaking a few Cheetos from JJ’s bag while discussing where the next team dinner should be. Until you felt a Spencer moving next to you, in almost slow motion you watched as Spencer begin curling up against you, his body moving in closer to you.

“Uh…”

“Want to move him now?”

Honestly, you didn’t. His chest pressed alongside your arm, his breath a millimeter from your ear, you could even feel his lips moving near it though nothing intelligible could be heard. He was warm, and he smelled nice, his hair somehow smelled spicy, woodsy.

Cinnamon. How the hell did he get his hair to smell like cinnamon?

Not unless one of the baristas attacked him with one of their seasonal flavors, it didn’t seem logical. But it fit him. It was nice and though JJ’s eyes stared at you in an incredulous amusement you pretended like nothing was out of the ordinary.

“So, I was thinking we’d spend Christmas Eve with the team and Christmas day with –“

And again, Spencer’s spastic motion cut you off. But this time…

“Oooh, I see Pretty Ricky copping a feel over there.”

Great, now Morgan knew what was going on. You huffed, carefully moving Spencer’s hand away from your chest only to have him flop it back in your lap.

“I think he like’s you, your body is like a magnet to him.”

Damn you and your baritone chuckle, Morgan.

JJ was covering her mouth to hide her smile. “I don’t think he’d be offended if you woke him.”

Before you could answer the hand began to shift and squeeze, tugging you closer to him.

“Hmmm, Y/N.”

With Morgan’s laughter the rest of the everyone’s attention was drawn to you, and you had no idea what to do.

“Tell you what Y/N, if you can last with him on you like that I’ll give you fifty bucks.”

Well, thanks Emily.

You still wouldn’t move him, not even out of liking it now. It was more of a point to make. It didn’t bother you, but them thinking it bothered you, bothered you. By the time you were getting ready to land Spencer had folded himself nearly across your lap, his face pressed into the thin fabric of your shirt, which you could feel a small wetness from what you guessed was him drooling. His arms encircled your waist fully now while one of his legs had tangled with yours. In short, the two of you looked like a mutant pretzel.

“Pretty Boy! Rise and shine! Come greet us and look at the mess you’re in.”

The yelling and the jolt of the jet making contact with the ground was enough to get Spencer to open his eyes. Blinking slowly before becoming large when he realized his position.

“Sleep well, Spence?”

The jeers were enough to get you to roll your eyes, as you patted Spencer’s knee in attempt to tell him it was all right. Everyone filing out before the two of you.

“I guess, you won, Y/N.”

You glared up at Emily as she tossed a fifty in your lap. With the two of you remaining Spencer fidgeted with his hands as he looked to you.

“What did you win?”

“Not waking you up while you did your yoga poses on me.”

“I’m sorry, Y/N. Are you mad at me?”

“Not really. Though you do get that they’re going to find out about us pretty soon now.”

“Probably, is that a bad thing?”

“No, I don’t think so, I just wanted to tell them in a better way than you slobbering on me.”

“I do not –“

Giving him a pointed look his mouth clapped shut. “Fine, I just, I can’t help it, you know? Whenever you’re next to me, my body knows somehow that you’re near and wants to be close to you.”

Giving his cheek a kiss, you wrapped your arms around your boyfriend’s neck. “My body likes your body close, it’s the reason I didn’t throw you off.”

Can I just say how encouraging it is that you write complex, multifaceted characters, and particularly female characters? And not only do your (longer) works pass the Bechtel test, you have actual female friendships. And you address interpersonal issues, and privilege, and even mental health. And you do it all so well and it just makes me so happy 😍😍😍

Also, thank you for writing such delightful versions of Narcissa Black. She may well be my favorite of your characters, though it’s so hard to pick a favorite 💚


Thank you.  I’d say it’s all deliberate and I am deserving of praise, but I’m really just telling stories about things that interest me.

I’m very tired because insomnia so I’m going to ramble, probably incoherently.  I was quite startled when I reached adulthood to discover that science fiction/fantasy were considered a ‘male’ genre, with male geeks and male protagonists waving swords around, because I grew up reading pretty much nothing but SFF, and it was all girls.  From Rissa Kergulen to Magda Lorne, a lot of them were, in retrospect, two dimensional (I’m looking at you, Rissa) but it was women waving swords and women overthrowing unjust governments and women going on long treks through snowy mountains with their Very Good Gal Pals ™. So that’s just what is the default for me.

Though fucking Mags in this fucking novel is being very difficult to write and if she doesn’t cut the shit right out, Amaryllis is going to be the main character.  Did you hear that, character.  I am threatening you with demotion to quirky best friend.  So shape up.

I did mention I’m tired, right?

W.I.P. Another (late) Tyki/Lavi snippet for Lucky week. This was supposed be something quick and easy, but the sketch screamed for being painted. I had plenty of other ideas scribbled down, but decided to pick something cute for once; the lack of bittersweet/grim elements is quite extraordinary for such a time-consuming work.

Honestly I was ok with behindtheshits winning on mma and since it was only album of the year but I can't take it this year how did exo lose aoty???

Rv didn't even perform and exo was disrespected like this goowwsfafafagaga I'm done bye

Seriously, this was unfair on a different level anyone with eyes can see this. Maybe if BTS had won album of the year ok…they did have 600 k WINGS orders as opposed to EXOs 1.2 million but w/e id let them have it but ARTIST? LITERALLY MAKES NO SENSE
