Hi! Welcome back! I have a question, do you have any new fic recs? Im in need of some new ones!! Thanks :)

Hi anon, and thank you!!

I have had a LOT of general Drarry fic requests sitting in my ask box for a VERY long time, so I figured, “Hey! You’re done with finals and you’re on your third glass of wine. fuck it up.” so here are some of my more recent reads that I haven’t already given out as recs.

anonymous asked:

Hey there! So, something recently made me disappointed with some fans of mysme. I've seen some fans who attempt to change the settings (mostly to Japan or America). I once met someone who full on gave them English "nicknames" because she didn't want to attempt to pronounce or use their proper names. I don't know if I'm overreacting or anything, but it bothered me. So, can you do random HCs to honour Korean culture? Like going on vacation somewhere in Korea, or celebrating a 100 days anniversary?

A/N: why do people do that wtf?? I mean i know we somewhat change the culture when we write certain requests pertaining to how an mc looks because sometimes the culture doesn’t really look kindly on the appearance but as someone who isn’t korean, i can’t get into the mentality to reject a request like that or anything, ya know?? Because it can be harmful and hurt someone (i keep it in the back of my mind what the actual view is so i dont just…. disregard it, but i do feel terrible for not addressing it) but i’d never completely REJECT the culture and change their names or anything because just what the fuck ~Admin 404

ALSO IM NOT KOREAN SO I HAD TO RESEARCH A L O T FOR THIS REQUEST BUT STILL COULDN’T WRITE MUCH- AND I MEAN I RESEARCHED REALLY HARD BECAUSE IM A NERD AND ENJOY LEARNING ABOUT OTHER CULTURES BUT IF SOMETHING IS WRONG PLEASE LEMME KNOW

I’m sorry it’s so short omfg

               -Okay y'all, I’m pretty sure Zen knows traditional dances and our MC has to beg him for DAYS to teach them one. Any of them. Buchaechum (fan dance), Nabichum (butterfly dance), even Ilmu (line dance). Any of them. All of them. Just- JUST TEACH MC ZEN, DO IT

               -LOTUS LANTERN FESTIVAL IN HONOUR OF BUDDAHS BIRTHDAY! It’s a celebration that everyone in the group makes time for! Seeing all of the gorgeous lights and lanterns is enough to put everyone in such a good mood! The group makes it into a slight competition- who can bring MC the prettiest lantern? Winner gets a kiss on the cheek from MC! yeees mc, yes

               -Jumin has THE MOST BEAUTIFUL terraced garden you’ve ever seen in your life. He invites you over to help him with it every now and then. It relaxes him and hopes that it could do the same for you! The two of you could spend hours sitting by the lotus pond, drinking some sort of imported and expensive tea this rich guy has to have, talking about anything and everything plus helLO YOU’D GET TO SEE JUMIN IN SWEATPANTS

               -Jaehee. In. Hanbok. Think about this for a little bit. Colourful, beautiful, and just- what else can I saY???? JAEHEE IN HANBOK

               -YOOSUNG LOVES CELEBRATING HIS VERY FIRST 100 DAYS ANNIVERSARY he might not have a ton of money to spoil you like he’d like to, but he does get really creative and goes hardcore. Takes the knowledge he’s gained from all of the clubs he’s been in and makes you a ton of gifts! Coffee, cards, dinner, he makes it all just for you! He does it every 100 days though so he has to get more and more creative about it and sometimes has to go to the rest of the RFA for some ideas (MATCHING SHIRTS AND HE’S EVEN BOUGHT YOU A COUPLE’S RING BECAUSE HE WANTS TO SHOW PEOPLE HE HAS A S/O THAT HE LOVES VERY MUCH)

               -Remember when Jumin called Yoosung’s mother and he was so mad he promised to slap him with Kimchi? Ya know how Kimchi is a symbol for Korea and is considered strong? Well he definitely gave Jumin a hard slap if that counts; MC has it on video and all you can hear is the *smack* and Saeyoung laughing in the background

               -You and Saeran have had a few drinking contests, and Saeyoung cannot believe how many bottles of soju the two of you can go through?? How are you both still breathing?? It’s even worse when you add Zen into the mix, it’s as if doesn’t work on any of you. Yoosung gets one shot and he’s out for the rest of the night

               -Jaehee and MC plan a hike at least ONCE a month because the poor girl needs fresh AIR and it’s good for the both of you, y'all get out there and earn those pajeons (fritters) and dong dong ju (rice wine) at the top of that mountain!

               -You and Yoosung have to drag Saeyoung out of the house sometimes, but the three of you end up at an internet cafe more often than you’d like to admit. One time though, there was one person in LOLOL who kept killing all three of you, and the anger just kept rising- which meant the voices kept rising as well. The person on the other side of you all kept trying to stifle a laugh each time. In the Rage of Saeyoung™, he almost flipped the table until he realized the one beating you all was Saeran on the other side

               -YOU CAN’T TELL ME SAEYOUNG, MC, AND ZEN HAVEN’T TRIED TO RECREATE SOME KPOP VIDEOS

               - You also can’t tell me that Jumin hasn’t tried to dance along to a few every now and then; MC has a picture they keep to themselves in remembrance

               -You and V watch the movie Shiri almost religiously?? When the two of you have movie marathon dates, it’s played at least once (“IT’S A CLASSIC, MC. CLASSIC”)

               -It’s hard to go on any dates with Saeran, but you did get him hooked on a few different K-drama’s and he reminds you constantly that he HATES YOU because of it. Don’t you DARE watch an episode without him because the boy can hold a grudge

               -K A R A O K E!!! All of you. Almost every weekend. Competitions. Somehow Saeyoung tends to win them except that one time you convinced Jumin to participate and WOW okay

of written feelings and words with meaning

Summary: Recently, Dan’s become addicted to this writing blog. He’s so addicted to it in fact, that he might as well be in love with it. The writer seems to say exactly how it feels and he finds himself wishing he had someone who was so deeply in love with him to write for him like that. Little does he know that there is already someone doing that and he’s closer than he thought.

Phil, on the other hand, has his own feelings and secrets to keep.

Excerpt:  For he was more than happy to stand at the shore, watching the tide roll than to submerge himself into the water, get whisked away by the waves, and before he knew it, he’d be too lost to find his way back.

Words: 5k+

Genre: Fluff, Angst (??)

A/N: FOUR DAYS. THIS TOOK ME FOUR DAYS. Anyyas, this was a whole lot of fun to write and I guess this is my year-end gift as well as my HOLY SHIT GUYS THANKS FOR 1.4K YA’LL ARE AMAZING GIFT.


“his laugh was a work of magic
filling my lungs with fresh air
he brought colour to a life so tragic
and held a heart with utmost care

yet he was a hero who didn’t know he was one
a knight saving people he couldn’t see
i would gladly give him the sun
even if he wouldn’t know it was me

oh what a cruel god rules my life
i write for a man who doesn’t know
and despite it, i hold unto the knife
cause i’ve planted a seed that has grown

so, i sit back and watch him live
because many say we met through fate
and bit by bit my heart i give
although i won’t get it back, ‘till kingdom come i’ll wait”


Dan’s eyes were focused on the addicting blue of the screen (he could think of a blue that looked much better than that), scrolling mindlessly, occasionally breathing out through his nose as a desperate attempt of a laugh when he came across the poem. With text posts, he’d normally read it then just scroll on. However, this one managed to hold him captive, a whisper of his mind told him to pay it more attention.

And so he did.

The brunet clicked on the poem’s original poster. Immediately, he was greeted by a monochrome theme with the title Words Written with Feeling in Search of a Meaning and he must admit, it took a while for his sleep-deprived mind to understand it.

For hours, Dan read this writer’s words. From what he could gather, the writer was a man and most of what he’s written was so tragically beautiful. His way with words was astonishing. They made you feel as if you were the one who felt his emotions.

Granted, most of his writing was in first person but despite that, the way he described his thoughts danced on the line of vague and descriptive. It was symbolic. His words made you think of their meaning enough to get a grasp on the complications that were his feelings.

Besides, he found it ironic that the blog was monochrome for the words of the writer were so colourful. Iridescent hues lacing between the curves of every letter. Splashes of colour highlighting every word.

Colouring this took forever, but it was worth it! :DD I had this idea for ages before I finally found time to draw it. The story behind this comic is based on @jackthevulture‘s headcanon about Atem being good with horses, and the more I thought about it and talked about horses with Jack, the more inspired I got (´v`) ♥

This happens in a post-canon setting where Atem meets a horse that reminds him of the mare he had in his previous life in Ancient Egypt. He feels a connection to the horse immediately and even thinks that she might be a reincarnation of some sort of his own horse ;v; ♥ (i’m not sure if it’s really the case or if it’s just Atem’s imagination, but he gets along with the horse very well anyway ♥) Yuugi isn’t as excited about it at first, but when he sees Atem being so gentle with the horse, he starts liking her too!

Horses are difficult to draw and I probably messed up a million things drawing this XD as always, i’m very open to comments about how I could do better and improve!

i hate how tumblr resizes big images, i had to split the pages and some of the images are still blurry (`A´) ALSO atem’s collar mysteriously disappears on the last page but im TOTALLY not going to go back to edit it anymore XD

The Clan (Minhyuk Fanfiction)

Chapter Three

     The abandoned house seemed to regain a hint of it’s ancient liveliness. Hyungwon was quickly recovering, the effect of the Blue Delphinium shocked you with it’s almost instantaneous results. You sat on the bed, cross-legged, your brother on one side and Minhyuk on the other. The rest of the guys had gone out to retrieve the needed material for the Larkspur Circulum, leaving you to strike conversation with your big brother’s best friend.

     You found yourself enjoying Minhyuk’s presence. He brought a joyful and carefree air to the otherwise tense and dark atmosphere. His smile was bright, lighting up the whole room, and his positivity was endearing beyond measure. You could understand why Hyungwon felt so comfortable around him, you did too in such a short span of time.

     Soon enough, the rest of The Clan had returned carrying all types of bags and boxes. “You can watch us set up if you want. I’ll explain while we work.” Jooheon said, adjusting his cap after he had set down the things he had been carrying.

Siri

Word count: 7.7k

Summary: Dan gets a new iPhone, and every detail is wonderful. Especially Siri. Especially when he lets him call him Phil, because nicknames are very important, especially with artificial intelligence.

Warnings: tiny bit of blood, little bit sad (happy ending tho)

AN: I have had this idea for ages but Dan said that he stayed up late talking to siri in his latest video and i swear to god i must be psychic 



Dan grinned as he got his post, hands trembling as he ran up the stairs, box in his hands as he opened his door and threw the rest of his post on the table, using his keys to slice open the sellotape and pulling the package apart almost rabidly as his new iPhone appeared in his hands.

It was so pristine and new. He wanted to treasure it forever, never drop it, treat it like his own child.

That didn’t stop him from accidentally pulling off the screen protectors.

hi im sorry for bothering you i'm going to go to my first concert with friends (and all time low's performing w/ the maine omygod) and im very very very excited my parents have been very strict about me going to concerts and im just so happy that im gonna see them! idk i'm just very nervous about making friends i guess and in general the whole experience because it's my first but anyway thank you for always responding to my frequent ramblings even if im anon x stay beautiful :)

hi lovely!!!  NOO YOU AREN A BOTHER AT ALL! I ACTUALLY FELL OUT OF MY CHAIR I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!! (ok shut up dahlia) congrats on being able to go! i saw all time low the second time just a week ago and they’re amazing! the first time was at soundwave but i was tired so i wasnt in the crowd, but the second time i was at the barrier and it completely changed the experience! so friend, i shall transfer my wisdom onto you, and train you in the art of concert-going. come young grasshopper. 


first of all, don’t worry about what people will be like there- you’re going to the show for you, to see the band with your friends! but luckily, it’s really easy to talk to people at shows! in fact, the thing i love about concerts is that everyone acts like they’ve known each other for ages! you can just turn to the person next to you and ask them a question, or sing with them in the crowd, and they will happily respond! in fact, the more open and excited you are to them, the more they’ll reciprocate. i know you may feel shy, but being in that environment should build up your excitement and you may find that you’re dying to share that with more people. but if that’s somehow not the case (and that’s unlikely), just pretend to be confident! it really helps me to just not care about stuffing up what i say, because i know i’d regret my inactions the most. think about it this way: you wont regret talking to people and sharing excitement, but you’ll probably regret it if you stayed quiet. most of the people you talk to in the crowd, you won’t stay in contact with after the show, and that’s ok, but you can always ask for someone’s number or tumblr if you talk for enough! 


NOW FOR CONCERT TIPS. welcome to the training course friend. along with the above, i have some extra information with you:

What to bring 

  • LOTS of money, even if you don’t plan on spending it- just in case. If you know you’ll spend a lot of money on merch, try set a limit on how much you can spend, or get a friend to watch out for you. Merch can get quite expensive but it probably varies for each country, and definitely for each band. Over here, ATL merch in about $40 per shirt, $60-$70 per hoodie, and $30 per hat (The Maine’s merch will be similar too) 
  • Photo ID- probably won’t be needed if you’re under 18, but it depends on the venue and the event. Good to keep one handy 
  • A water bottle- not all venues allow them in, but you may as well try, or drink something in line. Security will also serve you water there and some venues allow free refills, otherwise water bottles can get quite expensive in there
  • A bag- it doesn’t have to be a big one, but it’s wise to keep your money somewhere. Have your friends designate one person to carry a bag so you can all keep your stuff in there, and then put it in the cloak room as soon as you get admitted to the venue (you’ll need a few dollars to pay for cloaking the bag). If you’re the only person who wants to bring a bag, then use one as small as possible- usually venues make you cloak the bag if it’s larger than A4 size. 

What to wear

  • Wear secure, closed shoes. You really should have shoes that fit your feet well and have shoelaces. I’ve been to many shows where I’ve seen flying shows, and I’ve even had my shoes come off. WEAR SHOELACES. DOUBLE KNOT THEM. MAKE SURE NO ONE STEPS ON YOUR SHOELACES 
  • Be careful what colours you wear. You may want to avoid wearing light/pastel colours because you’re gonna get sweaty, and you don’t want your clothes to be stained, dirtied, or see-through.
  • Choose comfortable clothes. Something you can move around in that won’t make you more sweaty than you’ll already be. 
  • Choose good bottoms. Some people find this choice difficult. Some girls are scared they’ll get bruised if they wear shorts, but no one really touches your legs. You could also wear leggings, but don’t make them too tight because it’ll feel sticky and gross. Some people think it’s too hot to wear jeans- personally, I wore them to my last two shows and I’ve been fine (I got bruised at the barrier though). Most girls avoid wearing skirts or dresses unless they’ll be sitting down because they don’t want to flash or be grabbed- to be honest, everyone’s close together so you probably won’t flash, and I don’t think ATL fans would wanna grab you but whatever.
  • Wear band merch if you’d like. Some people say it’s tacky to wear a band’s merch to their own show but I don’t think so; hell, ATL wears their own merch on stage. And trust me, more than half the kids at ATL shows wear ATL merch. Some people like to change their clothes after they buy merch there so that’s an option.

What to do 

  • Organise what time you all want to get there. You don’t have to wait in line ridiculously early to get to the front of the crowd. But, it helps to know the capacity of the venue and its distance from your meeting place. Use that information to make a judgement accordingly, but honestly you don’t need to really stress for bands like that. I like to come two hours early (I went five hours early to twenty one pilots though), and the time goes quickly anyway, plus you can talk to people in line. All Time Low fans kind of like to come early but it depends on the area and the venue. Either way, you’ll all be admitted into the venue, and pretty quickly, so don’t stress out. 
  • Eat well beforehand. It’s very important to eat enough, and well enough, so that you have enough energy to last the night. If you don’t eat, you’ll feel shaky in the knees and will probably pass out. Carbs are the best for energy, so get together with your friends beforehand and have a meal together with pasta, rice, bread etc. You can bring some lollies to eat for a quick energy fix when you’re in line (some venues don’t allow food inside so you should probably finish them beforehand)
  • Have a plan. Discuss with your friends what will happen when you get there. Organise what time you want to get there, and what your first actions will be once you’re in the venue. For example, depending on the venue, I will quickly buy merch, then cloak my bag, then head to stage and I could still get to the front. Also organise where to meet after the show if you lose others/have to get picked up/if your phone dies. 
  • Charge your phone. Try to make sure it doesn’t die so you can call friends/family/look up google maps if you need to. You may want to consider investing in one of those cases that charges your phone just in case.
  • Organise a code action. When you and your friends are in the crowd, it’ll be hard to hear each other, so it’s important to organise something to do if one of you feels faint and/or needs to leave the crowd. Usually tapping them on the shoulder and pointing outwards helps. 
  • Stick close to at least one person in the crowd. There will be a lot of moving around, especially on the inside of the crowd, so expect it. That being said, it’s more than possible that you’ll separate from friends, especially if there’s more than two of you. If you do lose them, don’t panic, just try to enjoy the show and see if you can move to them later during the set, or after the show. 
  • Drink plenty of water during the show. Self-explanatory. If you’re up front, you can ask security for water periodically; if you’re at the back of the crowd, you can leave to get water. 
  • Don’t film too much. If you’re constantly worrying about getting good photos and videos, then you’ll regret it and not enjoy the show for what it’s worth. When you’re at the show, focus on what each of your senses detect and the details of the environment, like the details on their faces- it’ll help you remember it more and enjoy it more! You’re still allowed to film- but film less than half of it. You can snap a few photos but there’s a very low chance that they won’t turn out blurry, so try using videos (you can also extract the frames and save some as photos later). Film your favourite song or a minute or so of some songs, or film them talking for a bit, but try not to look at your phone! And remember, there will always be videos of your show online, so don’t worry if you don’t have your favourite parts! You can alternate between filming with your friends (they film one song, you film another), and make sure you have at least 3GB free on your phone (just in case)!!
  • Be nice. And I trust that you will be! Unfortunately though, not all people in the crowd will be nice, and it gets worse depending on the fanbase. At the same time, we shouldn’t cause them trouble in return, so please be patient if people are pushy and rude. 

Other tips 

  • Decide whether or not you want to buy merch, and make a judgement as to when will be the best time depending on where you want to be in the crowd. You can look at merch before the show and come back to buy it after, but be wary that they will probably sell out.
  • Seeing as you’re a first-timer, I wouldn’t recommend going in the middle of the crowd, because that’s where it’s the most rough (and of course with heavier bands it gets more intense!). The safest way to enter closest to the front, is to come from the sides, so pick either the front-left or front-right of the crowd and try to weasel your way in. Over the course of the show, people will move around, so it’s definitely possible for you to get close to/at the barrier. 
  • If you want a better idea of what seeing the band live will be like, try looking up videos online. All Time Low are great live; they have so much energy and love to get the crowd jumping, and they like to interact with the crowd, so they’ll talk to you a lot. They got some kids on stage during Time Bomb so they may do that too. Jack really likes to use the whole of the stage, so if you’re at the barrier or close to it then he’ll run around and will probably see you!
  • If you want to get as close as you can in the crowd, then you’re allowed to. Just get as close as you can without being pushy before the bands start. As the show goes on, people will move and you can weasel your way in. Another tip: if you say “excuse me” and try to walk past a person, they’ll usually let you, so don’t be afraid to. 
  • If you want to meet the band, your best bet is to probably wait after the show, not come super early beforehand. With All Time Low, they tend to come out at the end of the show (depending on the venue) so you’d have to wait a bit, but they also have pre-show meet and greets with Hustler Club members (you have to pay for membership). 
  • You can ask for the band’s setlist! But you’ll have to be at the front of the crowd. Politely ask a security guard before the stage is fully set up and they should save it for you afterwards, unless Jack and Zack throw the setlist out to someone random in the crowd. Jack, Zack and Alex also throw out their picks and Rian throws his drumsticks so try catch them! 


wOW i rant but thank you for sharing this great news with me! enjoy the show! don’t stress out about whether or not you’re following all of this information, only take it as a guideline and enjoy yourself! it’s a fun concert not a boot camp! i’d love to hear about it afterwards! lots of love, stay cute! xx

Taking one last look in your mirror and popping your lips, you smile at your reflection. You had to hand it to Natasha, she had made you look a million dollars. It was nice to get dressed up every once in a while, even if it was for this stupid annual “hero awards”. A silly idea really, but you were the Avengers, and you had to “humour the public” according to Tony. He just likes a party though, let’s be honest. You run your hands over the blood red silk and grab your bag off the side and head to the kitchen to meet Sam and Natasha. Everyone else had already left just before, and Sam offered to accompany you and Nat.
Sam and Nat gather at the front door as they hear your heels clicking down the corridor, and you laugh when you turn the corner and Sam’s mouth drops to the floor.
“Damn am I a lucky chauffeur tonight” He winks, and Nat shakes her head.
“Yeah yeah, lets just get to the damn place otherwise Tony will bollock us for being late!” You laugh again, heading out the door, squealing as Sam pats your bum on the way past. Such a damn flirt. The last car is already on the drive, and the three of you squeeze into the back seat.

The journey goes by quickly, the whole time spent laughing at Sam’s jokes and his hopeless attempts at flirting with Natasha. She plays along, teasing him, smirking at you every now and again making you chuckle. When you arrive, you can already hear the shouting and clicks of cameras, you almost groan at the thought of having to get out and dealing with it.
“C’mon (Y/N) it’ll be fine. Just stick with us!” Sam smirks. You roll your eyes and take a deep breath as Sam comes round the other side of the door, offering a hand to help Nat out and then you.
You’re momentarily blinded by the flashing cameras, squinting through them to focus on where to walk. Looking further up the carpet, you see Tony and Steve talking to some woman with a microphone, and when they spot you they shout you over.
“Here she is, deadly assassin number two and apparent glamour woman” Tony looks you up and down and you playfully smack his arm, smiling at the interviewer. Turning round again, you search the crowd of people, eyes not finding who you’re looking for.
“You look stunning (Y/N)” Steve distracts you. You thank him, taking in his handsome appearance. He rarely wears a suit and tie and it’s odd to see him do so.
“Weird seeing us all in something other than our gear or slacks right?” He laughs, reading your mind. You laugh with him, and then excuse yourself, eager to get out of the spotlight.

As you walk towards the end of the carpet, a figure catches your eye. There he is, stood in a corner by himself, his handsome features lighting up every time a camera flashes. You stop still for a moment, adamant you can no longer breathe. You’ve never seen him in a suit before, a shiny bow tie round his neck. His hair is slicked back in a bun, loose strands hang around his defined jawline. You’re pretty sure you’ve never seen something so beautiful in your life. But then you notice his expression, his eyebrows are furrowed, biting his lip nervously, and your heart sinks. You didn’t even think about what tonight would be like for him, this huge crowd of people, the cameras, the lights, the noise. Picking up the front of your dress, you rush towards him, at the same time trying not to draw any attention to yourself. A few feet away, he notices you coming towards him, his breathe taken away by the sight of you. He stands up straight, clearing his throat. You give him a sweet smile and his eyes light up for a second.
“Bucky! Are you ok?” You grab his forearm as he starts fiddling with his fingers again, not quite meeting your gaze. He hates looking vulnerable in front of people, especially you.
“I-im fine. I just wasn’t expecting all this I guess.” He shrugs, voice barely audible above all the racket.
You move your hand from his arm and tangle your fingers with his, ignoring the tingling feeling the contact is giving you. He looks up at you, mouth slightly open in shock and you give him a re assuring smile, squeezing his hand.
“C’mon we’ll go find the table inside.” You practically drag him along, smiling to yourself as his hand grips yours a little tighter.

When you find the table, Clint and Wanda are already there, and greet you with a glass of wine when you approach. You take a seat next to Wanda, Bucky on your right and join in with their conversation on how ridiculous this night was, and of course you all knew who the winner was going to be already.
“What’s the bet Tony voted for himself like 100 times?” Clint says, making you all laugh, and even Bucky smile.
The venue soon starts to fill up and the buzz of people gets louder and you see Bucky shifting in his seat. You scoot your chair closer to him and squeeze his thigh re assuringly. He looks at you and nods, giving you a small smile which you return. He leans in closer towards you, speaking you’re your ear.
“You look beautiful tonight doll. I like your lipstick, it’s like the colour they wore in the 40s.” His compliment makes your stomach flutter, and you’re pretty sure your cheeks are now the same colour as your lips. You thank him, and go to compliment him back, but are distracted again when the rest of the team joins the table. Steve sits on the other side of Bucky and starts a conversation with you, but who are you kidding, you’re not thinking about anything but close he was or how damn thick Bucky’s thighs felt between your fingers, and little did you know Bucky also isn’t listening to a thing Steve’s said after your hands set his skin on fire with one touch. You shake your head of those thoughts, and draw your attention back to your friends, taking a big sip (gulp) of wine.

“I can’t believe you’ve dragged us to this damn thing again Tony, but its free booze, so I’ll take it.” Nat scoffs.
“Don’t be sour because you never win Natasha.’ *queue eyebrow raise from deadly redhead* ‘Anyway, its Bucky first proper night out, and I can’t wait to kick your asses when I win tonight. So cheers!” He gives a shit eating grin, earning eye rolls and shaken heads, but you all laugh and raise your glasses anyway.
“Cheers!”

tutorial: hey amika how did you get that texture

ok a  bunch of people have asked me about my colours ive been posting lately and i think trade secrets are dumb and not hiding tricks up your sleeve keeps you on your toes. but yeah my textures are super easy, i consider it post processing.

- i’m using photoshop CC 2014 but im pretty sure you can do this with your version of photoshop. i’ve also had some people yell at me on twitter when i insinuate the GIMP isn’t a comparable program (unfortunately!) and insist that you can do anything in the GIMP that you can in photoshop, so, there you go.

- i’m doing this on a 300dpi image & you might want to mess around with some of these numbers if you’re working smaller than that.

Step 1: i colour my image. most of my shading happens in ink or not at all so my colouring is basically just flats & sometimes coloured lines. i only do shadow when i feel like i need to.

Step 2: i make a new layer on top of everything and fill it with any colour. then filter > noise > add noise, set it to 100%. i do uniform colour noise because i like the shimmery chromatic undertones but do w/e suits your purposes.

And It’s Good Enough To Make Me Wanna Fall In Love

my friend dragged me to this party and I just saw my ex quick make out with me” au

-

It’s not that Dan isn’t a party person. He likes parties. He likes the whole socialising, drinking, I-don’t-know-who-the-hell-you-are-and-why-we’re-sitting-on-the-trampoline-in-the-back-yard-talking-about-dinosaurs-but-I’ll-roll-with-it vibe to it (okay, maybe the latter was only one time), and what’s the harm in getting a little drunk every now and then?

But the problem with Joe, is that he has more friends than Dan can keep up with. He knows too many people Dan doesn’t, and he goes to way too many parties.

Which, Dan supposes, isn’t really a problem in itself, but it’s where he comes into it that is – being the loyal roommate/best friend he is, Joe seems to have adopted him as his party mascot. His trusty ‘plus-one’, for want of a better term.

“Come on, Dan,” Joe throws him a red and black plaid shirt, dismissing one (of many) of Dan’s excuses of ‘but I have nothing to wear’. “I’ve grown out of that, so it’ll fit you just fine. You suit red.”

Dan glares at him, but walks over to the mirror and holds the shirt up to his face. It does suit him, kind-of, and he supposes he could probably get a couple more wears out of his jeans before he has to wash them.

“We’re like teenage girls, you and me,” Joe smirks, watching Dan assess his reflection.

Dan smirks, but tugs his pyjama t-shirt off and grabs the red plaid thing. He’ll never win.

“You owe me big time,” he mumbles, buttoning it up.

“Come on, it’ll be fine. This is Andrew – he knows how to throw a good party.”

“Ah, yes – ‘Andrew’. Another strikingly familiar name.’” Dan mutters dryly, grabbing his straighteners.

Joe tuts. “You’ll love him.”

Dan wonders how many times he’s heard that one before.
