is there anything they don't look amazing in

Reblog if you support artists with OCs and original art

Hey it’s blue and I wanted to talk about how not many OC based artists are getting recognised and the only art work that actually gets reblogged is the occasional piece of fandom art. Please go out there and if you would be so kind as to reblog these wonderful OCs and the original art of the amazing and talented artists who deserve to be noticed. It shouldn’t just be fandoms that are looked at mainly but it should just be the art itself. It shouldn’t matter if the drawing is from a fandom or not, what matters is that the person worked their hardest on their artwork and hope to get it noticed. please make those artists dreams come true.

So part of my day involved tearing up at my computer because some of the most talented, amazing, beautiful people involved with @disneybound as a phenomenon put this together and posted it up on Instagram earlier. I’m beyond words. I can’t even pretend I’m doing anything but screaming in delight!!!

Don't give up

This is for authors and artists.

Guys, creating is amazing, and this is an entire new world you’re giving birth to. I think you - and we - don’t realize how important you are - how important this is. This can look not important, not really, this one little fanart, fic, cosplay, fanvid, song… but it is. You surely made someone smile. Someone laugh. Someone cry. Someone feel something. Somehow, you did.
In your art, people can even recognize themselves.

Through fluff, angst, romance, friendship, family, adventure, everything, anything, you just give yourself, and us, the chance to dream. The power of imagination. THAT is wonderful. THAT is what we all need, at some point.

Never stop writing. Never stop drawing. Never stop creating.

This might sometimes be difficult, because you don’t have the inspiration anymore, or maybe you just feel like on this big huge network, no one notices your work. It’s normal. This is the internet. So many informations in here.
But people do notice you.
It just take time, and work. The more you try it over and over again, the better it is. Perhaps, you don’t see it, but you’re permanently improving yourself.

Just keep doing what you’re doing. Don’t be shy, share your work. Keep giving your ideas life, keep giving us life.
Your work is great and we love it.
Don’t give up.

Adding the Mystic to Messenger

Knight-Commander Meredith Stannard

World of Thedas, Vol 2:

Long before Meredith Stannard became knight-commander of the templars at Kirkwall and set into motion a war between the templars and mages, she was a confused little girl with an apostate for a sister.

In diaries, Meredith described her beloved older sister, Amelia, as a gentle, quiet girl. Amelia was easily frightened by crowds and loud noises and never strayed far from home or her mother’s side. While Meredith longed to see the world, all Amelia ever wished was to be home, close to family, tending to her small garden. Amelia’s fragile nature made the discovery that she was a mage all the more heartbreaking. The family faced the possibility of having to send their beloved Amelia to a Circle Tower full of strangers to live under constant watch and rigid rules. Just the mention of being in unfamiliar surroundings drove Amelia into a wide-eyed panic. How would she learn to control her magic if she couldnt’ learn to control her fear? How would she take the Harrowing? Unwilling to see Amelia suffer, Meredith’s parents decided to hide her away.

The plan worked, for a time. But the family had neither the knowledge nor the skills to train Amelia as a mage. All they could do was try to keep her calm and happy. Whenever Amelia was frightened or upset, strange things happened. Glass would shatter when she was angry; fires would start when she was afraid. It became all but impossible to hide Amelia’s powers. neighbors began to suspect that the Stannards were harboring a mage. The Templars were called.

my father just looked at me and said ‘when are you going to write a book? Actually, you look like someone who would write a children’s book. Actually I just annotated the name of this children’s book author, there’s an amazing interview with her and thought it would be useful to you’ (✿◠‿◠)

The story continues featuring @ofgaladhon

“You know, you are supposed to eat the food. Not just stare at it.”

The girl next to Haldir was a guest in Lorien. It looks as if she has never visited, because she seems to be amazed with every little detail around her. They were only at dinner, and it was not formal. But, the girl played with the forks and looked around the whole table as if something amazing had just happened.

“I’m Haldir, nice to meet you.”

Elves truly were something. Though she had grown accustomed to the elves of the neighbouring Mirkwood, elves of other domains it seemed were all different. And it left her in awe. From the mere sight of the Lady of Light, to the way these Lorien elves held themselves, more graceful more.. she wasn’t sure what word to use, and lost as such in her thoughts, she watched the elves around her, fork twirling in her fingers before she was shaken from her thoughts. Glancing to her side her cheeks flushed, and she felt the heat all through her. 

‘Valar damn you Sigrid! You’re a princess now, not a buffoon!’ she mentally scolded herself. 

She grinned none the less at the elf, who introduced himself (She assumed it was a he.. she had in fact been wrong before) as Haldir. “Sigrid, at your serv- pleasure to meet you.” She had met far too many dwarves it seemed, as she nodded her head amending her statement.  

Fenris in Fog

This is my submission for @teamblueandangry’s reverse big bang event: Glow Bang! As part of the event, I was teamed up with @wardenari who created an amazing fic to go along with my artwork. Please go check it out!

His First Friend - @wardenari

My goal with this piece was to create a visual story that represented the mystery that comes with the Fog Warriors and Fenris’s time on Seheron. I also wanted to take the opportunity to explore stylistic choices outside of my comfort zone as well as pattern making. I hope you all enjoy the art and fic as much as I do! <3 

I’ve been bullied and excluded at school since I can remember, but I still had a few friends. It was only until 7th grade when I realized they were emotionally abusing me. Telling me that everything about me was weird; the way I say, ate, held a pencil, anything. They’d all look at me and laugh one day and then act as if I wasn’t real the next. At sleepovers tell me how worthless I am and then text the group chat I’m in with them about how horrible everything was cause I was there. I’m a joke.

Me: *sees another amazing trailer for Pokemon celebrating it’s 20th anniversary and showing off all the new stuff they’re going to deliver in 2016*

Me: *standing outside Atlus with a megaphone* IF ONLY ANOTHER COMPANY WHO ALSO RELEASED A “P” GAME 20 YEARS AGO WOULD START GETTING THEIR ACT TOGETHER! *starts throwing rocks at their windows* IT’S PERSONA’S 20TH BIRTHDAY, ****ING ACT LIKE IT!

also. please think about the character dynamics of kiritsugu/iri/maiya. because. they would be amazing. please think about:

  • sweet optimistic cheerful ball of sunshine and rainbows and happiness and warmth and love iri and her with two icy pragmatic cold-blooded assassin husband and wife kiritsugu and maiya
  • the two of them constantly hanging around her doing not much of anything except speaking in short laconic sentences and looking threatening with their guns and icy looks 
  • both of their expressions suddenly softening as they look at her until they both slowly turn into fond smiles  and they are such soft and subtle expressions but somehow just full of unabashed adoration and love 
  • two cold icy assassins, stoic, blunt, mission-focused, pragmatic, lavishing her with affection and kisses in every way they possibly can think of and suddenly finding that they don’t really know how to do it but they try and are kind of awkward about it but still managing to make iri incredibly happy anyway because she can tell what they intended to do even when they fail at it. 
  • iri seeing right through these facades and knowing exactly what’s going on in their minds even when they hide it and hide it well and when they’re actually experiencing intense emotions even as their expressions look perfectly normal and stoic to anyone else
  • iri managing to get them to open up in private, to show their vulnerable sides to her and their true emotional tender-hearted gentle selves and then they spill out their hearts to her because they are actually very emotional people who have SO MANY FEELINGS and especially kerry who sometimes just runs out of words and cries because words aren’t enough to express his sheer amount of EMOTION and that’s how they al end up in a cuddle pile with iri hugging both of them while kiritsugu cries
  • and there are a lot of hugs and cuddles and kerry and maiya feel kind of awkward and ???? about it because they have no idea how to do this but iri doesn’t mind and doesn’t care
  • and doing her best to lavish them with affection and kindness and hugs and kisses right back except she succeeds and kind of overwhelms them with the sheer might and amount of warm and tender feelings and then kiritsugu cries
  • iri, the daintly delicate gentle sweet and physically weakest one, being the one who ends up taking care of both of them because they may be the badass gun wielding assassins but she’s the strongest of all three of them
  • and teaching them how to be human beings with feelings because that’s what they are but they functioned as living weapons for so long they forgot how to do anything else because it turns out there is a surprisingly long list of normal things that she knows how to do and they don’t
  • iri being the filling of a kerry and maiya sandwhich, iri being cuddled and hugged by both kerry and maiya at the same time. iri being kissed by both kerry and maiya the same time. kerry and maiya having long conversations and meetings in the same tone in which they discuss missions and their assassins things except it’s about both of them talking about and planning various ways to lavish iri with affection together and make her happy and just do nice things for her. planning surprises and shopping trips and dates and things they want to do for iri with the same seriousness and strategic thought with which they plan their missions and secret plans. thinking very very hard and very seriously about the most logical and efficient method to please her and make her happy
  • sometimes they overcompensate and kind of go a little too far and end up with really ostentatious and flashy results and go for the most difficult to obtain and achieve option and do not realize that iri is of course very pleased that they try very hard and put so much effort into doing things for her but she would be equally satisfied with something much more simple. iri realizing that her crafty brilliantly strategic and unbeatable assassin husband and wife are also kind of dumb losers
  • but she loves them anyway. she loves them a lot. and they love her a lot and it’s beautiful
  • basically kerry/iri/maiya is so beautiful that sometimes i think about it and i want to cry because of how beautiful and amazing it is
How to Talk to Your Daughter About Her Body

”How to talk to your daughter about her body, step one: Don’t talk to your daughter about her body, except to teach her how it works.

Don’t say anything if she’s lost weight. Don’t say anything if she’s gained weight.

If you think your daughter’s body looks amazing, don’t say that. Here are some things you can say instead:

“You look so healthy!” is a great one.

Or how about, “You’re looking so strong.”

“I can see how happy you are — you’re glowing.”

Better yet, compliment her on something that has nothing to do with her body.

Don’t comment on other women’s bodies either. Nope. Not a single comment, not a nice one or a mean one.

Teach her about kindness towards others, but also kindness towards yourself.

Don’t you dare talk about how much you hate your body in front of your daughter, or talk about your new diet. In fact, don’t go on a diet in front of your daughter. Buy healthy food. Cook healthy meals. But don’t say, “I’m not eating carbs right now.” Your daughter should never think that carbs are evil, because shame over what you eat only leads to shame about yourself.

Encourage your daughter to run because it makes her feel less stressed. Encourage your daughter to climb mountains because there is nowhere better to explore your spirituality than the peak of the universe. Encourage your daughter to surf, or rock climb, or mountain bike because it scares her and that’s a good thing sometimes.

Help your daughter love soccer or rowing or hockey because sports make her a better leader and a more confident woman. Explain that no matter how old you get, you’ll never stop needing good teamwork. Never make her play a sport she isn’t absolutely in love with.

Prove to your daughter that women don’t need men to move their furniture.

Teach your daughter how to cook kale.

Teach your daughter how to bake chocolate cake made with six sticks of butter.

Pass on your own mom’s recipe for Christmas morning coffee cake. Pass on your love of being outside.

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.

Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.”

-Sarah Koppelkam

I just feel like posting a few things about Peeta in MJ that just really like amaze me honestly.

This is a big one but Peeta fights to overcome his hijacking. He is literally tortured, mistreated, brainwashed and probably so much more yet he fights so hard to get back to himself and as he improves, he continues to look out for Katniss’ safety. Although the timeline isn’t clear, this literally happens within such a short time frame and that is in part because of Peeta’s immense strength and will.

He chooses against games with the Capitol children. Even after everything, Peeta believes in justice but not revenge and this is someone who lost his leg, his family, his sanity and Peeta still makes this choice.

When he returns to District 12, a place where he lost his family, the first thing Peeta does is plant the primroses not just for Katniss but because he himself is honoring Prim.

Even after everything, Peeta remains a symbol of hope for Katniss (and I’m sure others). This isn’t canon but my headcanon is that Peeta brought hope to the District. He may have aided with construction or providing baked goods to volunteers or just making people feel in good spirits because that’s Peeta!

There’s probably so much more (and feel free to add!) but I’m just feeling so emotional about Peeta in MJ! What a strong and brave character!
