jdmara  asked:

do you have any tips on drawing dragons? I really love the way you draw them and want to be better at it. I don't know what it is but I can't seem to get the hang of it. I'd really appreciate some tips.

Take animal

Make it a scalie

Or take a reptile

And add some non scalie bullshit on it

(there is no rules to drawing dragons this is just my mindset)

Can you please create a love spell using just one candle since I can't get hold of many materials. I live in a country where I can't find much things required for spell casting. I read on the Internet about love spells getting backfired, what r the reasons of that? Please tell me a way to prevent that from happening. I mean any tips for a successful love spell

Love spells can be considered manipulative and kinda rape-y if you gear it towards a specific person, so it’s better to cast a general love attraction spell. Sometimes people feel these “backfire” because they get too much attention from too many people or from people they dislike, or from some really creepy obsessive people. Attention is not always good. If this spell does turn sour, there are ways to dispel it’s effect on the internet.

Now that you know what could happen, here’s a simple love spell.

simple love attraction spell

Carve a heart shape onto the candle.
Light the candle, feel it’s warmth but be careful not to burn yourself.

Whisper or think:

As I watch the flame dance
I draw to me hopes of romance.
As it warms my face, I’ll warm others hearts,
Who graze the feathers of cupid’s dart.

Blow out the candle.

Do you remember a fic in which Stiles finds himself in a parallel universe where the Hale family is alive and either he never existed or his mom is alive in place of Stiles? I believe he sleeps in his old Jeep in his dad's garage at some point before finally confronting the Hales about finding a way to get back home. -- Though, really, I'd be interested in any alive Hale parallel universe fic. Particularly ones where he can't go back maybe?

We’re not sure about the fic you’re looking for, maybe some of our followers know which fic it is?

Nevertheless, we have some other recs for you!

ALIVE HALE FAMILY IN A PARALLEL UNIVERSE

In which Stiles goes along with one of Derek’s plans and ends up in an alternate universe as a result. He should’ve known better. He did know better, actually, and that means he has no one to blame but himself.

Laura wants to lure the kid in with food and kindness and make a pet of him, like a feral cat. Derek wants to have him arrested for stalking. They’re at an impasse. (And the rest of the family is staying emphatically out of it in a way that suggests bets have been placed.)

Sometimes I feel like dc writers are so into Joker b/c they don't have to know any backstory or characterization to write him, they just have to be 'crazy' (chaotic evil, really). His characterizations flip-flops all over, so they literally can't go wrong. When you write Joker, you can be a lazy writer. The other villains actually require some effort to get right. (Which is why they are better characters)

I really enjoy crocheting, but it's just about impossible for me to get anything done cause of my ADHD. When I'm counting my loop-di-doops I lose track and have to start over again and again. It's really sad cause I would like to get better but I can't finish anything. Any tips?

Hi!
I’m going to throw a few ideas at you but I’ll preface by saying that I do not have ADD. If anything, I have mild OCD and find a lot of comfort in the repeating patterns of numbers in crochet.

You might invest in some stitch markers. The ones I have are made of plastic and like $5 for 100. They sometimes break and I constantly lose them but they’re cheap enough that it isn’t the end of the world. By placing a stitch marker every few rows or stitches, you give yourself an anchor to count from. It makes it easier to pick up the count again if you loose it. Even if you have to put one every 10 stitches, it may help.

Look for patterns. This really helps me. Almost all of my amigurumi increases and decreases are done in multiples of 6, which makes it easier for me to keep count.

You can also try some more free form projects or ones that don’t require as much counting. Granny square blankets just go around and around with extra repeats at the corner. Other blankets may be made of a simple pattern that repeats over and over so you only have to keep track of what you’re doing within that repetition.

I hope some of that is helpful. I don’t share your experience, so I’ll also ask the audience if they have any ideas. Feel free to reblog with your suggestions for the asker.

can you imagine if mid ever came out and it was like ran or med and we waited all this time for a game with a terrible plot and shallow characters asjfg would y'all lose it?

So I'm reading "Awake" and I couldn't help but think of this scenario...
  • Optimus: And so... for the sake of our peace treaty, and for our own well-being, it is probably best that Autobots and Decepticons steer clear of each other... for the time being.
  • Everyone: [murmuring, unsure]

  • Optimus: I... excuse me?
  • Starscream: You're glitched if you think I'm gonna abide by that.
  • Wheeljack: You lookin' to start something, flight-frame?
  • Starscream: [snorts] Hardly! It's unrealistic to continue keeping Autobots and Decepticons apart. We should be learning how to cooperate with each other, and the Neutrals. Besides, anyone who's got a personal score to settle would probably disobey that order anyway.
  • Rumble: He's got a point.
  • Frenzy: Yeahhh, who else would know better than Starscream about disobeying orders?
  • Everyone: [some more murmurs, chuckling]
  • Starscream: Quiet, you! The point is we're ALL going to live on this planet, whether we like it or not.
  • Optimus: I have considered this, Starscream. But what can be done? Tensions between our factions are still very high...
  • Starscream: Well I know what I'M gonna do...

  • Skyfire: I...

Mommy, please help, I felt incredibly manly today, and I wore my best binder with my best trousers and my best shirt, and I did my hear manly, and I looked really manly, but I still got immediately misgendered and addressed as miss. And I don't know what to do, and I feel really hopeless, like it will never get any better, and I just don't know what else I can do to pass. I already walk and carry myself as a man, I always have, but it still isn't enough, and I can't do anything else than cry rig

My dear lgbt+ son, 

I understand how you feel. That’s a incredibly frustrating situation to be in and i can feel from your words how sad it makes you. 

I think it’s important to know that it’s normal to feel how you do. You’re allowed to feel that way. We talk a lot about positivity and that’s important but the truth is that there are days and situations in life when it is very very hard to see anything positive. 

I don’t want to dismiss your feelings with a quick “It’ll get better”, even though i know that it will get better. I know that you’ll meet new people who get you to know as who you really are from the start. I know that circumstances change, i know that hearts change and i know that one day you’ll be surrounded by people who see you and see the real you - and that’s not a “Miss”, that’s a man.

But sometimes it doesn’t help to know that it’ll be better one day, so i’ll focus on what i know about the present: 

I know that you looked incredibly manly and handsome today, that you looked like a man - because you are one. Nobody can take that away from you. 

I know that you do all those things because they express who you are. And that doesn’t disappear because some blind idiot doesn’t see it. Your efforts are not wasted, i promise. If people don’t see how manly you look, that’s their mistake, not yours. 

I know that you are a man. I know that you’re real. I know that you’re valid. I see that right here and now - and so do others. Not only will people see the real you one day - we, the lgbt+ family, see you today and will always see you as who you really are. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

Latte au's (part 1)

So while I’ve been working on the latte fic, I have been thinking about a lot of different modern latte au’s. so I thought maybe I should share them with you guys!

MUSIC AU

Matt is finishing up his final year of college graduating with a doctorate in bioengineering. His best friend Shiro invites him and his sister to a recital his orchestra is doing. But Matt has never really been into music, only really going to Shiro’s performances because his sister made him go. Just as luck would have it, Pidge forces her brother to go to the recital. Matt of course is pretty grumpy at this, complaining that he’s going to be behind in his studies (not really, but he just really can’t understand the appeal to stuff like this. No offense Shiro.) but as the recital starts, Matt notices that there seems to be a new member to Shiro’s orchestra. It’s not hard to tell he’s new, since he’s the only darkly tan one out of the entire ensemble. That’s probably the first time Matt has ever sit still through an entire song, and then when the next one is about to be played; tall, tan and gorgeous stands up and takes a position by the microphone. He then begins to play the most hauntingly beautiful piece Matt has ever heard. Through the entire performance, his eyes are on this tan violin god.

After the performance, Matt meets up with Shiro ,as usual, and starts asking questions about who the violinist is. Shiro automatically gives himself smirk and merely says “why not ask him yourself?” And points to said person running up to them, waving at Shiro. Matt learns that his name is Lance and that he’s supposedly a violin prodigy. Though he doesn’t really like it when people boast about it.

Matt is left staring wide eyed at the kid, trying to figure out what to say to try and make a good impression. Of course, Lance notices and asks him if there is something on his face, to which Matt’s immediate reply is “no, but I’d love to.” (You can rip this headcanon from my cold dead hands) Lance laughs and gives Matt his number and his name, telling to call him if he wants to meet up and maybe grab some coffee.

And it’s the start to a beautiful relationship. They will send each other memes constantly, having entire conversations with them. At the beginning of the relationship, both boys would tell each other cheesy pick up lines any chance they got (they still do it, but it’s not as bad as when they were both pining messes trying to impress the other) Whenever Lance gets out of rehearsal, he will hang out with Matt and listen to him ramble on about his thesis or his most recent project, and follows along to his train of thought pretty well, asking good questions about his work at appropriate times.

And Matt will listen to Lance practicing his violin or ranting about how his newest piece is such a pain in the ass (even though he’s already played through it at least once since he got to Matt’s apartment.) he’ll even bring some of his own pieces in and work on them, talking out loud to Matt about crescendos, sharps and flats and “how a triplet would make this part so much better than a slide”. And even though he doesn’t really get any music terms that Lance rambles on about, Matt loves hearing Lance talk about music; loves the emotion that he puts into every single note.

This blog is some good shit *thumbs up* I can't wait to see baby Ichiro growing up >< Also, is there any moment of Viktor, Yuuri, Otabek, Yuri and Makkachin all together? Like in an outing or something? I would really love to see it hehe.

Well, considering the weather is just now starting to get better after the winter and that Yuuri just had a baby, they haven’t really had time for a group outing. They do have time for watching movies together, though!

This is was taken before Ichirō was born. Viktor, Yuuri, Otabek and Yuri were watching together a horror movie. Suddenly, there was a jump scare and Yuuri got really scared, scaring Viktor in the process a little bit as well. Otabek and Yuri, on the other hand, weren’t scared at all and found Yuuri’s reaction so funny that they started laughing.

Makkachin was also silently judging his dads since they woke him up from his nap.

And whenever OT3 have children (if they have any that is), Mari is ULTRA PROTECTIVE and the best babysitter. //She'll get along better with them bc Nova and Plagg are so extra and she can't deal with extra people aside from her papa

heck YEAH

Mari is probably going to be the perpetual middle child of the family. Plagg and Nova will be a few years older, ot3′s (possible) kids will be a few years younger. She’s always either the quiet younger cousin or the nice older cousin, but she doesnt really have a buddy.

Do you think you can be healthy/get enough nutrients & protein without eating beans? Every time I eat legumes I get massively bloated, really bad gas, cramps. My stomach just doesn’t seem to digest them. I’ve been persisting eating them for months now but it isn’t getting better, no matter how I prepare them (soaking, rinsing, etc), but I can't take it any more. Do you think a vegan diet can be healthy without legumes?

You definitely do need to include beans, there are many other plants to eat :)

There are plenty of other protein options besides beans like fruit, veggies, grains, nuts, seeds..etc!
You don’t need as much protein as “the fitness industry” makes out, you need around minimum 40-60g a day if your a woman, protein is the easiet nutrient to get since everything has it :)

Ps i know these charts have beans on it but for other people to see too!

Some Slav headcanons

Because I was having too much fun thinking of these. (More under the cut, I thought of A Lot)

  • Dislikes red things because red is on the opposite spectrum of his lucky terahertz blue and it’s super unlucky. There’s anywhere from a 15% to 45% chance for Bad Things to happen in alternate realities when interacting with things on the red part of the spectrum!
    • Won’t eat red foods, doesn’t like red clothing/fabrics
    • Keith thought Slav hated him for a while because of the whole Galra blood thing (Slav did get tortured by the Galra for information) until he realizes Slav just finds his paladin color is the most likely to increase disaster events in alternate realities, at which point he’s like ‘oh whatever’ and ceases to care
    • Will flat out refuse to get in the Red Lion if they have to go anywhere
  • Also not fond of the Yellow lion, too close to that spectrum. Will tolerate the Green Lion.
  • Blue Lion is Best Lion. Lance is also his second-favorite paladin after Shiro entirely because he’s blue.
    • Lance takes this as a point of pride until he realizes if they ever have to go anywhere he’s always the one stuck driving Slav around and being his babysitter/bodyguard.

I know it's been asked before but do you know any big ways to improve or feel satisfied with your own art? I've been drawing for over a decade of my life and feel like I'm still bad and can't finish a piece I'm proud of and it makes me feel so miserable. I don't want to give up, I see many artist like you that get me pumped to draw and aspire to get better, it's just not happening. I won't accept "drawing isn't for me". It's the only median like to do and I need a creative outlet. ahh I'm sorry!

hmmmm i think what really started me on my progress was taking a break and just going on an “art trip” to find the styles which i found myself drifting towards. which kind of art form do you identify with? what colour palettes make your eyes wanna do backflips?

moody art? action packed art? nature art? conceptual art? watercolour art?

import your external interests to make drawing feel more homely. you love plants? puppies? the colour red? big jackets? ripped jeans? jazz music? rainy weather? PUT. THEM. IN. draw what makes your brain buzz with excitement but also remember to start with what makes your heart comfortable as well.

the whole point of discovering these first are to help you find your identity before what you draw really becomes who you are, instead of just aimlessly working on the practical theories of art without knowing what you want to really achieve through it. most of us started on art for this reason - self expression. best of luck nonny!!

grace-of-hearts replied to your photo:YOI Future!Verse ABO AU - 4 Koma SMACK! The kids…

Yurio’s face in the first panel is great. He wants to know what to do to fix this but he’s never handled friendships well initially himself. And he’s notably younger than Yuuri and Victor, so he probably feels a little out of his depth here.

whoo I caught a reply! :’D

NOP Yurio’s never handled friendships well minus Beka, but tbh they’re ALL out of their depth. People where scared of Yurio, Victor didn’t particularly care to befriend others (who mostly approached him for superficial reasons anyway), and Yuuri was ignored or bullied as a kid (outside of Yuuko).

Should also note that the three of them have VERY different attitudes approaching parenthood too. For Yuuri, the idea of a family (if not necessarily specifically kids) and being surrounded by loved ones is comforting, and not something he’d ever thought he could have until recently. In the haze of uncertainty that is life and a career after his retirement, he sees it as one of the only clear and tangible goals that he can accomplish, and share with his mates too.

Yurio is forever bitter about the absence of his parents from his own childhood, and has always specifically dreamed of having kids so that he could give them what he didn’t have. He’d never trade his grandfather for parents, but it’s also an experience he’s always craved, even if he’s on the parenting side. In addition, while the others are in no rush, Yurio wants kids earlier rather than later because he desperately wants his grandfather to be a part of that family vision, and he knows realistically that he doesn’t have that much time left. If he were alone, heck if it were just him and his mate Yurio’d think it irresponsible and wait until he has the confidence and experience to support them all, but given the much more extensive support system of their poly relationship and Victor and Yuuri’s seniority, he feels it could really work even with him being so young.

Victor probably hasn’t thought nearly as deeply about parenthood as he should have, but he likes surprising even himself and is used to making spontaneous decisions. While having kids is definitely something even he wouldn’t do on just a whim, when the other two bring it up, he decides more or less on the spot that it’s a wonderful idea and something he really wants too. Any additional form of love he can have with Yuuri, he’ll embrace with his whole life.

anonymous asked:

I've been writing for years now but one issue I've noticed is that I have a hard time describing body language, and I can't seem to get better at it. The way someone is standing, how they move as they talk so the readers can get a better picture of what is happening in the scene. Is there any way you can help me?

My immediate instinct is to say, just don’t describe it, because I am possibly the world’s laziest writer when it comes to descriptions (okay, not really, I have read Hemingway and I’m not quite that bad).

Think about what’s important for the scene and for the character. If someone has a nervous tic, mention that in lieu of saying that they’re nervous. You can say a character is favoring one leg, or holding an arm stiffly, or moving like they’re hurt. It’s more important to know that a character smiles if that’s rare or notable; tears are more table than a sigh.

You can also use general descriptions. “He punctuated his words with a wave of his hands.” “She made wide, sweeping gestures when she spoke.” “They turned to face the room, making eye contact with each person as they went, pivoting on their good leg with the aid of their cane.”

We as a reader don’t need to know every twitch and sigh that your character makes. I tend to find myself repeating certain things (sighs, shrugs, smiles) and so sometimes I’ll cut those out, sometimes I’ll change them, and sometimes I’ll make them more general.

Also just think about how people move/act, particularly during conversations, and what you notice. Generally facial expressions are more notable than body movements/posture because most people make eye contact while talking, though if you have a character who doesn’t make/isn’t making eye contact, they may notice whatever they’re looking at the time. Sudden or big movements are also more likely to be noticed than small or subtle movements. Clenching a fist is less noticeable than shaking one. Laughing is more noticeable than smiling. 

In general, as with a lot of things, keep in mind the story you want to tell. Include the gestures, body language, etc. that gives the reader what they need to know–or what leads them in the direction that you want them to go in–and leave out the extraneous details.

Headcanon: despite his clumsy looks, Leorio is the best dancer among the main four (because even a poor town can have celebrations and music is cheap and so is dancing). Killua gets second because training (his mother insisted and he was ok, still better than electroshocks), but he hates it. Kurapika knows the theory of any dance, but he really knows traditional Kurta dances. Gon tries everything but can't follow the rhythm for his life, so popular dances from Whale Island are his top.

bless you for sending this! :D

leorio knows hybrid forms of dancing, because his town was full of immigrants and refugees and everyone taught one another all those neat moves during spring celebrations and all those little festivals they held, and leorio was small and he would sit under the yellow lights of his neighbor’s porch and be utterly mesmerized by the couple dancing in front of people, and he would just demand to learn, because girls like dudes who dance and because pietro wants to dance too even though he gets tired very quickly (i have more to say about this particular point but i don’t want this to veer into the Sad so i’ll leave it to another post).

killua not only has to learn one type of dancing, but two: one from kikyo’s culture (which is obviously japanese) and silva’s (just pick any european country). silva doesn’t care all that much but kikyo insists killua learn both, and killua has these vivid memories of watching illumi move so gracefully in the hall (the only one actually properly following kikyo’s instructions) while killua just fucks the moves on purpose, and adds just a little force to his moves where there should be tranquility, and slows down when the music picks up, and riots when it’s ball dancing time. killua is fine with dancing, just not when it’s presented to him as a family obligation.

kurapika never particularly liked dancing, but he knows all the elaborate rituals accompanied with kurta dancing; he knows the type of dress to wear, which dance requires you to be barefoot and which one needs a specific footwear, he knows the dances one does in weddings, funerals, passage rites, and birth celebrations; he knows solo dancing, couple dancing, group dancing, he knows how to perform all of them with absolute precision, he was just never enthusiastic about it. sometimes he wonders if he still remembers the moves, but he doesn’t dare try. he fears that he’s forgotten how (oops swerving into the sad again sorry).

gon loves dancing! he is always amazed at the different types of dancing he sees in different cultures, and when killua was with him on whale island, he tries to teach him and drag him into this group dance but it’s too intimate and too rowdy for killua’s tastes so he just sits to the side and watches gon completely nail it and own the dance floor. gon is almost always willing to learn new dances, new moves, and he’s very quick at it, but yeah, his favorite will always be the group dances on whale island it has a very dear place in his heart.

tl;dr i love this headcanon.
