is this even the same move

how u draw genji ??? He's so hard for me to draw i cry

This reply is late as heck, I was gonna draw something for it but I’m lazy as hell. But!

The key is to simplify!

I’ve never ever drawn Genji with all his details, and frankly I would probably throw myself into the sun if I did, because there are so many (which is one of the things that irks me about these character designs, but I digress).

You don’t draw every bit and piece of detail. You draw only what you need, which is the basic shape, and move on.

You don’t even have to put in a lot of effort, because all you’re basically doing is taking his existing model, and doing the bare minimum of drawing by removing details. And drawing him actually becomes really easy when you do that!! 

How much you simply is up to you, so you can make it closer on-model by including details, keeping the same shapes, and making proportions more realistic, or throw the details out the window for even more simplicity.

I hope that helps???

Also, bonus picture I made in Source Filmmaker that I was going to use as a reference but, again, l a z y

(You can use Source Filmmaker to make yourself references too!! Folks have added a bunch of Overwatch heroes.)

I’ve been more open about my gender identity recently because I’ve been becoming more fucking nuts about it as my life starts moving in an increasingly bizarre position. Like, this same time last year, there’d be no way I’d ever openly talk about or even share much trans stuff cuz I just didn’t care much. Now, it’s becoming apparent how important the whole thing is to me. Also, I want to connect more with the community, I guess. idk

shits weird

*gently grabs Morality's hands* Hey, look I get that it's scary, and i know it's easier for you to just dismiss what we're saying. But answer me honestly, would we lie to you? Right now Logic is in his room, saying the exact same things, that it doesn't matter that he's in love with you, because you only like him platonically. One of you has to make the first move, even if you're scared. If you don't you might regret it for the rest of your life. -EC

anonymous asked:

Before Jian yi disappears do you think he'll try to make another serious move on zhan. Also I feel like even after he returns he'll be the one to initiate everything until zhan actually reciprocates and that makes me kinda sad cuz that's such a long wait lol I really want zhan to surprise Jian yi with a kiss

HE BETTER MAKE A MOVE 

yeah their relationship kinda resets when they meet again in the future, and i feel like some of it lends to the fact that zhan still feels resentful that jian yi disappeared without a word for years despite his promises that they would go to the same highschool, university, and workplace 

but when he came back he thinks he lied to him about his whereabouts (the deserted island) and definitely holds him at an arms length bc he doesn’t want to get hurt again, which explains why he kicks him out of his apartment etc 

Writing this all out may be a sheer sign of my emotional immaturity, but I don’t care at the moment. I may be knee-deep in my own subjective romanticism of what really happened, moved by nothing but the memory of your presence in my life for that short time, and also the messages that have shown up in my inbox as of late. The physical phenomena of my lonely state, you know? As soon as I get to one good free place, the motion of electric charge from the solitary position of my heart produces an attraction to that same old flame, you. For goodness sake.  I’m too aware of myself to even write it out without a clear conscience. Even as I type I should stop right now, but the rest of my day is filled with dull responsibility and talking to a blank void seems a more reasonable way of responding than talking to you directly. And by the way, I have the guts to do it, but the thought of being destroyed by you in the end horrifies me and I’m too smart of woman to let my short life get consumed by that overpowering sense of no no no that came when I kissed you. But goodness, I miss the idea of you. And so here’s what I need to say: my neighbour saw you the other day, sitting alone in the foodcourt at the mall reading some book and it was like, the mention of your name right here in my hometown made me offended for a moment, that you wouldn’t think to call me? As if you owed me the notification of your body in my space. Making a corner of your universe in my old stomping grounds. Making it pure and thrilling and meaningful and I wasn’t close enough to touch it, to walk on over to you and tell you that I can hum the tune and recite the lyrics to 3 of your new songs. Except I wouldn’t tell you, I’d see that smirk on your face and weaken in the knees and I’d lose sight of the long run all over again, because you were a flare of interest and passion that was never quite ready to fall into me completely. We were not a good match and that’s why I remain sober. Don’t be shocked, because this was all cramped up dark inside me for a long time…but there’s no way out of the mind sometimes, and the longing and affection I have for you is simply my memory on opiates.

To all the young people out there. Especially juniors and seniors but younger too, if y’all wanna move out on your own once you’re 18 or 19 don’t be surprised if you have to work 2 or 3 jobs and still be lowkey broke. It’s not even really the bills (if you know how to use your utilities responsibly which is a convo for another time) but the monthy rent. Don’t even THINK about LA either for you socal people. I mean I GUESS it’s doable but honestly, in “outlier” cities you can live in “good” (I know that’s subjective) apartments and neighborhoods for the same price it costs to live in “low-income” housing or not so good areas of LA or the other major cities. If it’s in your means then cool but don’t be discouraged if ou can’t afford it right now. Just get as close as you can for as cheap as you can and then drive (or take public transportation) out there whenever you wanna go.

Oh and get that driver’s license now while your parents will still pay for everything or at least help you out lol

TMI about sexual problems and depression[[MOR]…

I relate to this so much. I do want to say 38 is not too late. But I don’t want to invalidate your frustration because I understand completely. I’ve been feeling the same way, and I don’t know how to move forward. It’s difficult. But you’re not alone, and you can even find other people who’ll understand and be understanding with you. This doesn’t make you less worthwhile.

Thank you, it’s kind of you to say that, and I appreciate the not-invalidating part.  I do usually feel as if I’m worthwhile but the life I’ve got is not.  It’s an odd distinction.

You know how in stories things happen that change the situation?  Even if you can’t directly do something that initiates a change, something from outside will happen.  But in life it seems as if things just continue in stagnation forever.  When things happen, like a new job, that appear as if they’ll change the situation or would change it in a story, it just doesn’t pan out.  There is an incredible inertia to this.

Alright so thanks to the new interview with Kubo-sensei (amazing translation here), we know:

  • Yuuri has indeed moved to Russia, and Viktor is still his coach, even though he is aware that competing and coaching at the same time will be difficult. 
  • Yuuri and Viktor can’t live without each other and can’t stand being separated.
  • If you still had any doubts, I’d argue that Kubo-sensei more or less confirms that Viktor and Yuuri are in a romantic relationship in this interview.
  • Viktor’s return to skating, the pair skate and Yuuri’s silver medal were all planned from the very beginning. Their story arcs were meant to lead to this conclusion from the very start.
  • Viktor and Yuuri’s stories are built around them mutually inspiring each other 
  • Viktor is incredibly happy about the bond he shares with Yuuri, because Yuuri is someone who sees him in a new, fresh way. 
  • The kiss scene in episode 7 was the most memorable scene for Kubo-sensei and she actively constructed the whole narrative up until that moment so that the kiss would feel natural and real.
  • Yurio is determined to beat Yuuri’s FS score and is therefore not entirely happy with his gold.
  • Kubo-sensei would love to work on the show for as long as possible and wants to do a second season.
The Rings in YoI ep 10

So it has been brought to my attention by the wonderful @wolfsflei that Yuuri only actually buys 1 ring at the shop in Barcelona. If we check the price of the ring on his receipt, not only does it say 1 ring (”Wedding Ring” might I add) but the price (if we also add + tax) roughly matches up to the price tags we can see of the rings in the glass cases.

So by this knowledge we can extrapolate that they did not get both rings here.

Let me drill the message home with some images.

Yuuri did not know this was coming. Victor had this ring prepared in advance and what surprised him was that Yuuri actually beat him to the punch. They were both honestly thinking of surprising each other with a proposal. I feel like this revelation just makes this scene a million times more meaningful because it shows that they were both thinking of the same thing without even the need for a discussion – that all they both want to just move forward with their lives together.

I just want you to know I’ve realized things. I loved you. Really loved you. But you can’t keep doing the same thing over and over until you hurt me, even if you don’t mean to. And I’m tired. I’m tired of having to forgive you all the time. I hope you learn from this. You can’t just love someone and leave them hanging. You need to prioritize them, love them, give them time. You did those, but they didn’t last. It turned out all that was left of you was a shadow. I was loving a shadow of a man I used to know.

A lot of the fandom seems to be freaking out about this so let’s talk about it!

This was actually one of my favourite scenes from the episode. Not because of any kind of impending drama but because this conversation has honestly been a long time coming.

After episode 7, there was no relationship talk. Victor and Yuuri have yet to sit down and tell each other straight up what they want out of their relationship (both personally and professionally). Flash back to episode 4 where Victor was asking what he should be to Yuuri. Now they actually are boyfriends (well, even more than that, fiancés) but same as we’ve never heard them state it, I don’t think they’ve really made it explicitly clear to each other either.

I feel that so far they’ve just been letting things evolve as they go. The Cup of China was actually only a bit over a month ago in-series. Their intimate relationship is still very new and it’s been moving really fast. They’re definitely physically intimate (as you can see by the pushed-together beds) but they haven’t quite connected the same way on the emotional level. They definitely love each other and want to stay with each other, I don’t doubt that for a moment, but they haven’t sat down and said “I want to spend my life with you” to each other. They haven’t told each other what their plans are for their professional relationship either.

We know that Victor has been doing a lot of thinking, and it was very obvious in this episode that he is grieving his career, but it’s also obvious that he doesn’t plan to go back to skating competitively.

Yuuri however, being the anxious person that he is, is reading Victor’s grieving all wrong. Yuuri is thinking that not only is their professional relationship (which he could end simply by retiring) but also their personal relationship is holding Victor back from what he “wants” – to go back to being a competitive skater. And thus we get the line that we did here. This is Yuuri’s attempt to “free” Victor to allow him to chase what Yuuri thinks he actually wants, which turns out could not be any further from the truth.

They aren’t going to break up. I can tell you that right now and with absolute certainty. Rather than this being something that is going to create drama, it is actually going to work to solve it. Yuuri needs to hear from Victor that Victor has no intention of leaving and that he wants to stay with Yuuri more than he wants to continue his skating career. Also very important is that Victor needs to say it out loud. Victor is a thinker, he rarely makes big decisions on a whim. He’s been processing what he wants to do with his life for a year now and he has definitely come to his decision (as was evident in episode 10).

Victor has chosen Yuuri over his skating career and this line from episode 11 is just the gateway to the discussion that will firmly cement their personal relationship in place. And the final bow-tie on the gift that is their relationship will be the duet skate at the end of the episode.

I’m honestly looking forward to seeing it.

This is what I interpreted as why Yuri got a lower score this time: 

I think he did the same mistake Yurio did in their skate-off 

That is to say, he wasn’t so focused on his love.

Remember: when Yurio first skated to Agape against Yuri, he executed it well, yet he was so focused on the moves and not showing his love, that Yuri still won. In fact, in that episode (ep03) Victor and the audience praised his performance yet Yurio knew as he finished it that he’d done badly. Likewise, although Victor and Yuri’s support in japan had all been excited, Yuri knew he’d made a mistake as he finished Eros

The first clue of this in his ep11 performance is when his last glance before he starts looks aggressive instead of enticing (no smile, no tongue licking). And his thoughts are more focused on beating someone else and less on Victor. Even his reason for adding a new move isn’t just to please Victor, but to get a higher score to beat JJ’s.

And by forgetting to focus on Eros, his routine got a lower score.

Oh, and if you want to interpret this as more meta, you could say this is the flaw of Eros: he now no longer needs to entice Victor, and so in a meta way he cant go further with Eros. With “yuri on ice” on the other hand…

Where are the landscape artists? What are they doing now? The world is changing. I have been very fortunate to be able to do the same job for 40 years. That’s rare in any era. —  Hayao Miyazaki

Klance vs Sheith

Dear Klance Shippers,


so with the new season comes a lot of controversy on the issue of ship wars. I am in love with Klance and it is definitely my OTP, but tbh Sheith had a really good season?? there were so many moments and I’m super excited for you Sheith fans, and although I wish there were more Klance moments, I would just like to say that trying to attack Sheith is a dick move. Be proud of them, because if you were in their position, you would be excited as well so don’t even attempt to try and fight the Sheith fans on this. The whole “brother-zone” and “#sheithisdead is such a horrible thing to do to that ship?? they didn’t ask for this, and you have to be empathetic and put yourself in their shoes!! I love Klance, but I am also proud of Sheith because they had an amazing season, so don’t try and ruin this for the Sheith fans.

Sheith deserves the same level of respect that Klance has. This new season was amazing and I’m so excited to see the new art, videos, fans, and fics that come out of it!

-Your Friendly Neighborhood Klance Trash

Did we already talk about the implications of Even wearing the exact same outfit the day he comes over after Isak sends him that text telling him not to contact him before he’s done with his girlfriend as the day they met on the tram and spent an afternoon falling in love only to be brought back to reality by the introduction of Sonja. The same denim jacket, the same hoodie with red strings, and the same burgundy t-shirt with those little glittery details. Yes I checked, and this is the only time he’s recycled an entire outfit down to the last detail (he did add a scarf though because it’s colder now), and while doing my very important research I also confirmed that the two times Even’s worn the most layers have indeed been in the scene where Isak blurts out he doesn’t need mentally ill people in his life and the du er ikke alene scene, so I do sense a pattern here. They also have that long silence after the initial halla in both of these Friday clips serving as a further parallel. It’s almost as if Even’s come to reclaim what could have been on that Friday afternoon exactly six weeks ago, the Friday afternoon that Isak complimented Even’s drawings, the Friday afternoon that we in retrospect know must have been at least as meaningful to him as it was to Isak because he had been dreaming of it since the very first day of school.

Even is standing on Isak’s doorstep in all his James Dean glory and he appears confident at first, although we now know that behind his confidence he was hiding a lot of fear and self-doubt, but then he glances over his shoulder. This glance is honestly one of the reasons I love this scene so much, because despite there being no dialogue there is actually a lot of subtle communication. The scene is so much more than just a makeout scene. Even glances over his shoulder, and while it’s a very quick glance, it’s enough to tell that he’s asking if he should leave, if he shouldn’t be here, he’s looking for a sign, and Isak understands this because after that glance Isak’s face changes. He’s been nervous all night, first anxiously staring at his phone and then trying to keep his cool in front of his friends as if his heart wasn’t racing knowing Even’s waiting for him outside, and he appears nervous even now, but as he sees Even look into the direction he came from, non-verbally asking if coming here was a mistake, he suddenly finds his confidence, thinks fuck it and just goes in for the kiss because since that Friday afternoon six weeks ago there has been no going back for them and he knows it now. And even as they kiss there is still that one break, that one little unspoken are you completely sure, followed by that final look of I’m sure, we can’t go back now.

Klance Brothel AU

So I had an idea a few months ago about a Klance Brothel AU and I wanted to share some headcannons with y’all:

  • Keith Kogane is a prostitute in an illegal and unregulated brothel with exploitative conditions for workers
  • Lance McClain is a cop who pretends to be a prostitute
  • Everyone is aged up (from 25 to 35)
  • Lance is on a sting operation to catch the owner and go along with the suspect’s actions to gather evidence of the suspect’s criminal activity (exploitation of prostitution)
  • The operation is supervised by detective Allura Altea backed up by her assistant Coran and her team called “Voltron” (Hunk Garrett, Pigde Gunderson and Takashi Shirogane – also Lance)
  • Lance meets Keith for the first time after a few years right in the brothel
  • Keith is surprised to see Lance McClain there. Is he a client? He can’t tell but he hope so
  • Lance is shocked. He thought Keith just moved away to another state to start a new life or something
  • They went to the same police accademy but Keith got kicked out for disciplinary issues and lack of attendance even though he was one of the best students. Then he disappeared
  • They have been rivals but it was kind of one-sided thing started by Lance. He wanted to be recognize as an equal under Keith’s eyes
  • Actually Keith had a crush on Lance
  • Keith: “What the fuck are you doing here?!”
  • Lance: “Excuse me? What the fuck are you doing here?!”
  • Lance tells him he just got the job and from now on he’s an actual prostitute
  • Keith gets so mad at Lance that he drags the guy in his room yelling he’s just made the worst choice of his life
  • Lance: “That’s none of your business!”
  • Keith: “You’re just wasting your life, asshole
  • And that’s how Keith realizes he’s still pining after Lance
  • Lance thinks he can pull some important information from Keith since he’s been in the brothel for years and apparently he seems to be the owner’s favorite. He just need to get closer to him and get his complete trust
  • They become friends at some point and Keith trusts Lance enough to give him a lot of useful information. Keith also tells Lance he’s the only one he can trust in that place. Lance feels awfully guilty after Keith’s confession. After all he’s manipulating Keith filling his head with lies. But he has to if he wants the operation to succeed
  • Keith is jealous of Lance’s clients
  • Lance’s totally oblivious
  • They fight a lot because of that but Lance just doesn’t get it
  • Keith is a mess
  • Lance is only focused on his sting operation but then feelings kick him in the cojones
  • Keith is impulsive and sick of Lance’s blindness so he kisses him
  • They fuck
  • Lots of feelings
  • One day police raid on the brothel and the owner gets arrested. All the prostitutes are escorted out of the bulding. Keith is sickly worried since Lance is nowhere to be seen
  • Keith doesn’t want to leave without Lance so he fights against the cops
  • He’s forcibly dragged by the police out of the brothel. Lance is out there talking to a silver haired woman who seems to be a cop
  • The woman is returning Lance’s badge back giving him a pat on the shoulder. She seems to be very proud. Keith’s head starts to spin
  • Keith: “What does this mean…?”
  • Lance: “Keith…I can explain-“
  • Keith: “You fucking lied to me!”
  • A n g s t™

PSA

I am the sort of roleplayer who uses NPCs. These are characters that are not my main character, and are open for either roleplayer to use to advance the story. Sometimes you need outside characters (especially bad guys) to make a story - I am interested in writing stories with you so I am interested in sharing those characters with you. It is not godmodding to use an NPC or decide what they’re doing. I absolutely encourage it. NPCs are objects of the plot, and they should be able to be moved around with the same ease you can move around the key for that locked door or your muse’s jacket in the cold. You can even introduce NPCs yourself.

I will generally bold or italicise dialogue from an NPC to show that my muse is not the one speaking it, or make it otherwise obvious from context. If you are not comfortable using NPCs you need to tell me in advance of us starting a roleplay.
