hiatus ☆

alright, so i’m doubting that anyone cares that much, but i’m gonna go ahead and go on some form of hiatus. i dont have that many rps going, especially ‘cause all the groups i was on  have already removed me from inactivity or gone inactive themselves, so yeah~ i’m babysitting/interning/vacationing for the next two months (aka my entire summer break) which means that i’m not going to be around too often. people such as kingkurthummelrps, ciscocrissrps, seblainewrites, blwarblersrp, and anyone else who has a 1x1 (or wants one maybe??) should message me or kik me, yes. peace out.

WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF FIRE OR AM (sic) IMAGINARY FIRE.  Right before the wards of Worcester State Hospital were demolished in 2008, I made one final trip out there.  In a sloped-ceilinged top-floor patient room at the end of a ward, I found this uneven set of instructions for what to do if the asylum caught fire (or, apparently, there was an “imaginary fire”).  Rather ironic, given that the asylum was mostly burned out in 1991 fire that was likely arson.  In any case, I found this strange proclamation about seven feet off the ground, near the top of a doorframe, and definitely took the time to photograph it at several different distances.

Anger

Today, I stayed home from school. And I’m glad I did. I had a bad feeling about going.

I know why now. During the course of the day, the kids would be doing health activities like zumba, golf, running. Simple stuff like that. All of it was okay according to my friends, except for one.

Marines. 

What happened was the school brought a real f**king marine to the school and let him treat the kids like crap. There was no water, it was in the sun, and there not allowed to stop. If one kid got it wrong, everyone else had to do the exercise again. 

One girl had a serious asthma attack and she could not get her inhaler. Two kids were crying, but he just yelled at them to keep going, to work harder. Now, the students were 12-14 years old. TWELVE TO FOURTEEN YEAR-OLDS WERE FORCED TO PARTAKE IN STRENUOUS EXERCISE WITHOUT BREAK OR WATER FOR FORTY-THREE MINUTES.

Not only that, but they had to do it PERFECTLY, and if one kid was a tad off, everyone had to do even worse exercises for a longer period of time. There was no care given by any of the adults, and the kids were treated badly. The marine they brought in yelled and refused to help the kids who couldn’t do it.

I don’t know about anybody else, but this pissed me off when I was told about it by many other students. One even stated it was so bad she didn’t know how to put it into words.

Reblog if you think this was wrong. I’m trying to make a point to my school now so that they don’t do it again next year.

IMPORTANT

So while I was snooping around for more hq videos from DoS I was told that posting gifs that feature not officially released DoS scenes can get your blog deleted.

This happened to Hunger Games blogs who posted Catching Fire gifs that was not part of any officially released videos.

I’m not saying that your blog will get deleted, but TAKE CAUTION. I would hate to see gifmakers and bloggers get their blogs deleted for posting this kind of material.

Be careful about what you put on your blog, that’s all I’m saying. It’s not worth getting deleted for this, in my opinion, but to each their own, of course. 

Important notice: I'm going on hiatus

Well guys, I’m sorry to break this to you, but I’m going on hiatus. 

I love, love writing in this blog, and I love you all guys. You’ve been nothing but supportive and sweet and caring and lovely these past few months. But, as it is, I run this blog all on my own, and sometimes I get a bit overwhelmed with all the asks I receive. I have more than 150 asks to answer yet, so I’ll keep the inbox open until next Tuesday, and then it will be closed so I can catch up with all the work I have left.  

So, this means you’ll get answers from time to time, but they will be very sporadic, since there are things that need sorting out in my life right now (nothing dire, mind you). 

Since I opened this blog, a lot of my free time has been devoted to writing in it, and I’m sorry for letting you hanging there guys, but I’ve run out of ideas and things to say, and I need a bit of time to rethink how I want to approach this website. 

My exams will finish next Tuesday and there are things I want to focus on, both in my professional and personal life. There are some changes I want to make in my life. I want to concentrate in my goals for next term, which will extend to my whole future, tbh: 

  • Work harder, so I don’t feel frustrated when exams don’t turn out as I expected. 
  • Start reading more again. I used to read like, 4 or 5 books per month before opening this blog, and I’ve lost a bit of my concentration ability, and I really want it back. 
  • My health is important, I need to take care of it. 
  • Not being afraid of the things I feel because something exciting could be on the way. Not letting myself being afraid of what could come because of some past heartbreak. 
  • Start drawing again. I loved drawing and it’s been years since I last took a brush up to paint something, and I really really miss it. 
  • Writing more. There are a few projects I want to get my hands on really badly: the book for my niece, my so-long-dreamed novel, my short tales, taking part in a few contests…
  • Taking care of my family. My parents are living a bit of a rough economical situation right now, and even tho we are not suffering from hunger and we have a pretty home to live in, it’s being hard for them, because we lost lots of things they worked for really hard during many years of their life. 
  • Start going out more. This term has being exhausting and I need to catch up in lots of things with my friends. I also want to go to more museums and concerts and talks and I want to be a little bit more involved. 

Well, I think that covers everything I wanted to say. My life is pretty exciting at the moment, in less than three weeks my niece will see all the light in this world and a new term full of possibilities and new chances is coming, but I still have a lot of catching up to do, and there are a few things I’m not happy with. This blog keeps being a distraction (not a bad one, of course) but it takes my time from things I love too, and until I work out how to balance all of this things, I’m going away for a bit. 

SO. My ask will be open until next Tuesday (february the 10th). You can ask me as many things as you like, and then I will close it and start working in catching up with all the answers. But there will be no posts or weblogs or anything else, just answers to ask. I hope you guys understand. I need to disconnect for a while until I feel connected with some things again. 

Cheers, and lots of love. This wouldn’t have come where it is without you guys. Thank you all so much. 

It has come to my attention that Yahoo! is automatically taking down blogs that have copyrighted song material. Some users have mentioned that their blogs got deleted without prior warning. 

Because I don’t rely on luck, I decided to delete every post made or reblogged containing songs from this blog. I also took down the link I have with the Supernatural OST for download. 

I don’t want this blog to get deleted for several reasons, so I hope you understand my decision.

IMPORTANT NOTICE (Love scenes in QUIETUS)

Hi everyone. Here’s an important announcement for readers of my fic, ’Quietus’.

After much careful consideration, I have decided to remove all smut scenes written up until now from the Quietus chapters on FF.net. All future scenes will also not be posted on there.

The reason for this is that scenes of that nature, strictly speaking, are NOT allowed on FF.net I know a lot of people have been posting them anyway, but to be honest, I am not willing to risk my story being deleted or my account suspended. Not with how many followers/reviews/favourites/alerts the story and I have gathered over the years.

It just isn’t worth the risk, considering that my story has become so well known and all it takes is one hater person to report it for it to go on record.

So to cover my back, all scenes of this nature will no longer feature on the website. I have also gone back and edited the sensitive material in Chapter 34, where Sakura saves the nymph from the satyrs.

I absolutely do not want to be caught out. For this reason, ‘Consume’ is also going to be removed shortly and any updates for it will be posted exclusively here from now on, only.

BUT DO NOT DESPAIR. I have devised the following way to ensure that you can still access these scenes, if you wish to do so.

You will find this note at the start of chapters which contain scenes of this nature, similar to what I had already:

Notice: This chapter contains smut scenes which are NOT readable on this website. The placement of the scenes are preceded by scene dividers indicated with triple X, as indicated below:

________________

XXX

________________

A similar divider will be placed at the end of the scene, and in between will be a number. Please use this number to find the corresponding scene in the SasuSaku Quietus group page on deviantArt, in the folder labelled ‘Love Scenes’. So if the divider is labelled Scene 1, you read scene one.

________________

So to explain this clearly, you will find now, in place of the scene at the end of Chapter 47, for example, the following:

________________

XXX

________________

SCENE 1

Please visit the deviantART group page if you wish to read the ending scene.

________________

XXX

________________

So you have to go to the SasuSaku-Quietus group on deviantART to access the smut scene labelled SCENE 1. Similarly, Scenes 2 and 3 have been indicated in Chapter 48 and have been posted to the folder already, for anyone who has yet to read them/wants to read again,

All current scenes and future ones will be posted in the folder labelled: LOVE SCENES.

You can find this folder towards the bottom of the gallery, next to the Chapter Previews one.

HERE IS THE LINK, which you might want to bookmark.

http://sasusaku-quietus.deviantart.com/gallery/49160631/Quietus-Love-Scenes

I haven’t put that link direct on my profile on FF.net, as a precaution.

You must be a member on deviantART and login to access these scenes, as they are flagged as Mature Content.

Please consider joining the Quietus Group to receive immediate alerts for when these scenes are posted,

________________

I am really sorry that I have had to do this. It’s actually a real pain for me to have to post in two separate places, and I also realise it is a pain for you all to have to open up another website/login/create an account just to read it (I feel this interrupts the flow of reading, in a way), but as I already stated, I absolutely don’t want to take any more chances. I hope you can all understand and respect that the action I have chosen to take is in the best interests of this story, to ensure that it stays up and available for you all to read. I’m willing to go through a little extra inconvenience if it means securing peace of mind for me and for my lovely readers. This was really bothering me lately, so I finally decided to do something about it,

I will not be posting the scenes on tumblr, for future reference, because I want them to be organised clearly and accessible in one place, without people having to look through tags to find them. I don’t want to link directly to smut on FF.net, either. DeviantArt and the group seems to be the most appropriate place to put them.

I will consider posting a copy of the full, uncensored chapters on here, too, in future, but the formatting is a bit of a nightmare when I paste chapter content here.

If you have any questions or aren’t sure of anything, please feel free to contact me.

Thanks in advance for being so understanding, and Merry Christmas again to all of you celebrating tomorrow.

In 2009, I began an interest in vocaloid and uploaded my very first cover to an English audience. Since that day, I’ve had the opportunity to reach out to the YT community and help introduce vocaloid to thousands of people. I’ve met many wonderful professional composers and have been honored to both work with them and be remixed by them in making official English singles and releases. I placed #2 on the Nico charts and made friends in different countries all over the world; been covered by other singers and appeared for my work on the Nico-Nico Omnibus Tour CD.

People have encouraged me and pushed me; they have helped me and given me constructive criticism when I needed it in my worst times. My subscribers, all 24,000 of them and counting, have given me their patience and praise. It’s because of you that I am who I am today- and that I have come along so far from a small, humble beginning.

In thank you and appreciation, I am re-releasing all of my older work fully remastered in CD/Studio High quality, which I will make available for download in several locations when this task is completed. I will be naming this the ‘Anniversary’ package, starting with the first song that made all of these dreams and accomplishments possible.

“Last Night, Good Night” by Kz_livetune; and I have attached a preview to show you what is coming your way soon. I will continue to sing as long as the world continues to love what I do as much as when I sing for each of you. To hear your comments, your feedback, and your words are meaningful to me. Though I may not always have the chance to respond, I always read and listen.

Forever grateful (I’m you guys’ biggest fan!),
rockleetist (Rachel) ♥

anonymous asked:

can u pls teach me how to draw bokuto's hair...

uhh i was hoping this ask would never come bc i hhonestly dont know how to explain

i can………give tips…i guess….the rest is a matter of practicing it until you get a feel of how it works and understand the essence. the most important is not to follow step by step a tutorial but to understand better the anatomy/whatever it is you’re working on and draw it!!!!

one important thing to notice is how bokuto’s hairline is clearly visible! this means you need to know where hair naturally grows on the scalp (note: it’s not the same pattern for everyone!!)

this is roughly what it looks like for bokuto, from there on the rest is kinda a hassle but if u go at it with all of your will you(re gonna do great things

IT ALL STARTS AT THE HAIRLINE!!!!!!! always draw from the hairline to the exterior!! drawing spiky hair is a little hard honestly, but if you wanna cheat your way through it just draw some bangs pointing up and pray for it to look cool

in bokuto’s case his hair kinda points to two different directions (its harder to tell when facing other directions but) viewed from the front, you can tell his hair is just styled to point outwards toward two points..almost shaped like two triangles.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and of course dont forget to leave enough space between the hairline and the eyebrows for the forehead!!!

some people are so used to characters with bangs covering their forehead that they forget foreheads exist. remember foreheads.they are underrated.

i hope this at least helps in some way, i honestly never really struggled with his hair because i had already drawn this kind of spikey hair, so i don’t know what are the usual mistakes people make that i could help correct. in any case my inbox is always open.

oh and heres another interesting tutorial for hairlines and other hair structures i wish you good luck space owlboys

Hello, cutie pies and darlings~!

Much to the surprise of many (and myself) I am not dead but I can tell you I probably will be from how much I made a few of you worry about me during my disappearance. So to stave off the stones and sticks coming my way, I’ll tell you guys, it has been a very, very crazy last few months.

The picture is pretty self-evident. AssCreedTranscribed is celebrating today.

Now would be a good time for me to share my dark secret… You may have noticed this blog has gone from 3+ posts per day to 2 queued posts, and the reason for this is that it’s exam season and all my professors are basically Education Ezio. I haven’t properly transcribed anything for over a month now, instead choosing posts from my old stash or submissions. Don’t you think I’ve given up on this blog or become bored with it though; the real fun with ACIII is just about to start.

And while we’re at it…

A very important notice about ACIII


I have come up with a policy not to post any spoilers about the plot of ACIII. I might post ACIII-related posts, but they won’t give away any plot events or important people. Firstly, because I know you guys would be pissed. Secondly, because I may not finish the game so soon and I would also be pissed if someone spoiled me. So do not dare to submit spoiler material using the Submit Form, or you will feel my damn wrath.

December 21st 2012 is when I start posting story-related spoilers (although I won’t post anything endgame related for a while longer).

Safety and peace.

mun notice

i just got some…very not good news, and so for the next few days/weeks/maybe a month, i really don’t know, i might be a lot slower replying or might not do replies at all some days.

im not willing to talk about it with anyone im not close to, so if i dont have you on skype, i dont want to talk about it with you. im sorry. that’s just how i work.

thanks for understanding,
—berry

OOC: Important Notice

I don’t know when I’ll next be around because I fly out to Chicago for ten days on Thursday morning so I can attend C2E2 and hang out with my cool friends (third year in a row awww yeeee).

Tomorrow will be spent mostly packing, panicking and making sure I’ve got my shit together so I don’t actually know if I’ll have time for RP, but I may be able to drop in over the days I’m away for brief updates. 

Your best bet to catch me will be over on my personal blog thecrimsonnutcase​. 

I may be taking the laptop but I have no idea if I’ll be able to get anything substantial written.
