  • EXTROVERTED SCORPIO: Loves meeting new people and can really be successful but often wastes that potential on getting drunk, partying, love and sex. But still, dazzles with their appearance and is really hot. Hides their low self-confidence by manipulating people and hurting others just to feel good and in control.

But still, loyal to death and never hesitates to reach their hand and help a friend in need of help. Can be really problematic and chaotic because they're unorganized but they live in their own world and know that everything is going to be okay
  • INTROVERTED SCORPIO: Way too socially anxious and doesn't care about anyone hurting their emotions. Really depressed most of the time but forgets about their depression when they're with their friends. They don't have too many friends because they're introverted af and they don't know how to communicate with people in public. Can be quite inappropriate but always knows how to make others laugh. Will act as a clown if it helps a friend to stop being sad. Really intelligent and rarely uses their intelligence and potential because they're busy eating tasty food while playing video games or watching movies. They're even socially awkward with animals - that's how far it goes with introverted people with this sign. But not to be mistaken, they're really good and emotional but they don't like showing their emotions in front of people, they think it makes them weak SADasd

In fact, they LOVE exposing themselves. Really physically beautiful, popular and active on social media. Has great aesthetics and is obsessed with shopping. Acts like royalty and loves commanding people. A little bit self-centered and egotistic and think that they're always right, so when somebody doesn't accept their opinion they instantly start raging about it
  • INTROVERTED SAGITTARIUS: Loves bossing people around, even though they're an introvert. Hates showing their emotions and can be a really big manipulator at times. However, very emotional and one of the biggest fighters there are. Really, REALLY intense. You don't want to see them getting mad. They can easily hurt you but you can easily hurt them too because they're fragile as fuck on the inside, but they will never admit that you've hurt them in any way because they're proud as fuck so nobody is messing with the queen
  • EXTROVERTED CAPRICORN: Really funny and interesting, talks to everybody about everything. Always says what's on their mind and loves buying unique things. Doesn't have good grades but that doesn't mean that they're unintelligent or stupid. On the contrary. Very intelligent and daydreams a lot, loves telling jokes and has a fucked up sense of humor. So unique. Loves money but doesn't like to admit it lmao. Very artistic and loves philosophy, animals, nature, music and languages. A fair player most of the time and knows how to support their friends. Selfless on the outside, selfish on the inside. Also, loves cooking some strange things which usually taste very weird but in a good way
  • INTROVERTED CAPRICORN: Doesn't speak at all and just sits there waiting for the world to end. You really just can't make them say a word because they're a little bit self-centered and they think that they don't have to waste their time talking to unimportant people about unimportant things. However, they can get really silly sometimes and burst off, even though they're an introvert. Can't stop talking about things they love, it's really strange how such a person who doesn't talk at all - turns into a youtuber the moment they find out that somebody likes the same things that they do. Money kinda rule their world and they really want to earn money with everything they do, but having no money doesn't stop them from achieving the things they want in life
  • EXTROVERTED AQUARIUS: You just can't see them sober. Parties, drugs, journeys, walks in nature and such things move their world. Just can't stop partying all the time. Has lots of friends and is really popular, probably is a DJ or a famous singer. Really seductive and beautiful physically. Simply everybody is their friend (except for the people they hate lmao) and they can always find someone to hang out with, because everybody wants to hang out with them. Really intense and quite bitchy most of the time, which makes them seem really arrogant but that's just how it is and they are fully aware of this
  • INTROVERTED AQUARIUS: You can't see emotions on their face. It's impossible. They might even question themselves if they're human beings because they aren't really aware of their emotions most of the time. Loves plants and things like aliens, unicorns, etc. Lives in a fantasy world and hates the real world. So impatient about everything and has nervous breakdowns when somebody complains about something they do. Really nice to people, even though they hate like 99% of them. Has probably a tumblr blog and rages on it about everything. Roasts famous people on twitter and doesn't even care about it
  • EXTROVERTED PISCES: Goal-oriented as fuck. Doesn't stop until they get what they want. REALLY emotional, maybe the sign with the most intense emotions out there. Is a really good friend with everybody but can be a little bit bitchy and arrogant at times, especially when things are not going their way. Actually, when it's hard for them to get or achieve something, they use manipulation to get what they want. As I said, their emotions are very intense so literally everything hurts them because they're sensitive as fuck. Eccentric af. When somebody hurts them in any way, they always find a way to hurt that person's back and nobody can even see that they're behind everything that's happening to that person. Sly. But very loyal to their real friends and will never let them down. When they love - they love with every piece of their soul and would put their heart into a person they love's hands, if it needs be. Because of their intense temper, sometimes they might seem like a fiery sign because they explode and hurt people really quickly
  • INTROVERTED PISCES: So fucking sensitive and their mind is chaos. Doesn't know what they're doing most of the time but in the end they always succeed in everything they do. People see them as fragile but that's just how they seem. They are actually really strong because they've been through a lot. Born with tremendous artistic tendencies and art is literally their life. They are very talented. Loves animals, shopping, nature, taking long walks, deep conversations and stargazing. Loves books and learning new weird languages and has tons of inside jokes with their 2 friends. They open up really hardly and they just don't let everybody in their life - they are really picky when it comes to people that they let in their life. Socially anxious as fuck and will look like a fool if they try to talk in public, so they avoid such situations

inspiration for witches

  • witches of the forest and the night - they change into wolves during the day and roam the green forest of trees searching for fellow caged creatures. The set free winged and wise owls under the moon, that illuminates their pearl feathers.
  • witches of the winter and stars - foggy winter evenings become hues of blue filled with starry nights for the witches. they live in old victorian schools surrounded by trees made dead by the harsh cold season. they wear bewitched moonstones around their necks that turn them into deers enchanting the frozen forest…
  • witches of the sea and precious gems - these witches live and breathe the sacred salty air of the shore. they use precious gems to channel their inner soul to undulate crashing waves into the grey sea. they dance and drown beneath the crystal watery surface like silver sea-sirens.
  • witches of burning fire and flames - golden wreathed witches filled with the radiance of bright fire and flames. they use blazing candles to illuminate the darkness in their cathedral of trees. their familiars are foxes as red as the sun and as sly as smoke from their fires. 
“Tooth and Claw”

Haven’t written much Phandom stuff lately, so I thought I’d try something for this year’s Ectober. This one’s for October 26th: TEETH

It was probably a bad sign how long it took for Tucker to figure out which of the tech in his bag was beeping. Had to crouch over it on the sidewalk sifting through a tablet, an old phone, his backup battery charger, two different generations of game boys, his backup-backup charger; Sam always warned him he was slowly sliding down a slippery silicon slope into pseudo-hoarding.

He found the culprit near the bottom of the bag: a Fenton ecto-scope tangled up in some old  cables for a model of PDA he…didn’t actually own anymore. Sam must never know. 

It was a cobbled-together monster made from grave-robbing radio-shacks and amateur soldering kits. Taking it out of the bag only made it vibrate and beep more urgently. The scope took some finagling with a few stuck knobs and dials before the static on screen resolved into something informative: the pixelated silhouettes of trees and a cold-spot slithering past them in toxic, neon green.

Tucker lowered the scope and squinted down the block. The park was that way. Damn. Rustling through his pockets, he pulled out his main phone and pinged Danny on the secure messenger app they’d set up for Phantom stuff- because it wasn’t paranoia when the government really was hunting you down.

GROUPCHAT: WHO YA GONNA CALL? (THE D)

You: Code Green in the park
You: class idk whatever the hell AW SHIT THAT’S BIG is
Danny: ok I can be there in 8
Danny: keep your head down till I get there

Tucker typed back ‘You know me,’ and added a scardey-faced emoticon. 

Danny: :/
You: I choose to interpret that as loving concern for my safety

You: don’t text and fly have you learned nothing from the billboard incident
You: such a bad role model
You: Thing of the kids
You: *think
You: Plz hurry

Tucker pocketed his phone before Danny remember the talk-to-text feature. Or if Sam logged on. Like he needed their reminders not to try stuff solo. He was fully capable on standing on a streetcorner like a good sidekick and wait for the big kids to come and-

A scream cut through the night, echoes elongating on concrete and broken asphalt. 

From the park.

When the monster-ghost was. 

Tucker groaned. “Aw hell,” and ran down the street towards it.

Lame adaptations and sequels are always like, “how can Mina go back to her stifling Victorian marriage after her experience with the dark, seductive Dracula??”

Meanwhile, Mina marries her best friend, who she’s known since they were children, who she share common interests with, they build a home together, work as partners, make immense sacrifices for each other, support each other through their traumas.

Guys, a marriage isn’t stifling and restrictive just because two people… get along, I guess?

Behind the Scenes of the Harper’s Bazaar Fic Thing

Now that both videos have been posted, here’s a little insight into how @bonnie-wee-swordsman and I got here.

Back in the middle of September I got a vague message from someone at Harper’s Bazaar saying they wanted to talk to me about something that had to do with my Outlander fanfiction. There were no more details than that, just looking to see if it was okay for them to email me more information. I immediately messaged @bonnie-wee-swordsman. Literally, she was the first person I texted. I didn’t hear back from Harper’s Bazaar until Monday and when I did, I FREAKED (again, a lot of it was directed at Bon). I was told that an excerpt from Written in the Stones had been chosen by Cait and Sam to read for this video they wanted to release to celebrate Print Shop and that the fics/excerpts they had chosen were of reunions. 

Two days later, Bon texted that they’d reached out to her too about A Hundred Lesser Faces. So for the last MONTH we’ve been quietly (and not so quietly) freaking out as we counted down the days till the video was going to post. We were told it would go up on the 22nd - the same day the episode would drop. It was supposed to be both together and then Friday everything became 100x more exciting and chaotic. Cause the video with Sam and Cait reading A Hundred Lesser Faces seemed to have been posted sometime in the wee hours of the morning… except it turned out it was a leak. And Harper’s Bazaar’s plans for the video(s) changed. They quickly and officially released the video of Bon’s fic through the proper channels and had to figure out what to do with the video that included the reading of Written in the Stones. Though there was discussion of holding back and releasing it with a later episode this season, ultimately the decision was to spread out the videos and interview they were originally going to post Sunday over several days. 

So it’s been an agonizing month of waiting followed by an emotional and CRAZY last few days, but I’m so excited everyone finally got to see this thing that still doesn’t feel real and that I’m SO thrilled and honored to have been a part of and I couldn’t have asked to go through it all with a better friend than @bonnie-wee-swordsman. Getting to be a part of the whole print shop experience in this way is beyond anything I ever could have expected and just… there aren’t words for it. 

The MBTI Heist
  • ENTJ- The Backer: The one who's paying for the heist to be done. Enjoys bossing everyone around by stating they're in charge of the operation, but everyone knows INTJ designed the heist.
  • INTJ- The Mastermind: The one who comes up with the entire scheme and makes the diagrams and writes up the roles. Would be the "Boss" but is too socially awkward, so they sit in the dark, scheme, and refer everyone to ESTJ for answers.
  • ENTP- The Source: The one who found the job. Typically the one to find the jobs in general. Has really good online connections and is typically able to get us the best price for the job.
  • INTP- The Hacker: Content to sit in the back of the van controlling the alarms, security cameras, lights, etc... INTJ wants you to hack into the police database to alter information? About time you had a challenge!
  • ESTJ- The Boss: Technically not the one who planned the heist, yet everything goes through them. Their unofficial job is to manage the crew and make sure they know their roles flawlessly.
  • ISTJ- The Informant: The one who knows about everything. They have gathered all the information concerning everything about this heist, and could ESTJ please explain that once more, it doesn't seem like sound logic.
  • ESTP- The Conman: The one doing the actual conning. Being the actor, doing some people manipulating, creating some useful relationships.
  • ISTP- The Gadgets Guy: Job description is to create or obtain what ever the crew needs. In charge of all the gear, from earpieces to explosives. Enjoys planting bugs on INTP to hear them talking to themselves while in their van.
  • ENFJ- The Mole: The one already on the inside. Everyone likes them and sure they'll listen to your problem... and then leak your weaknesses to the crew.
  • INFJ- The Pickpocket: Somehow able to get you to start telling them your life's story in the bus. When you're done it'll be more than your conscience that's been lifted. Enjoys secretly planting little notes of encouragement on all the crew members.
  • ENFP- The Acquirer: The one who everyone seems to like and has limitless contacts. ISFP needs a better motor for their car? Yeah, I have a friend whose dad's cousin runs a car shop in New York, so of course I can get that.
  • INFP- The Person on the Inside: Unlike the Mole who was placed in their position, the insider doesn't know they're going to help until they are. They really are just trying to help, and ESTP made it clear that it would be a big help ($$$) if you just left that one door unlocked.
  • ESFJ- The New Kid: The one with potential in everything, but not great at anything. A little lost but ready to prove themselves. Is super hyped that to know the INFJ believes in them.
  • ISFJ- The Muscle: The sweetest person... until you mess with their crew family! They're super devoted to the crew and have no qualms backing that statement up with some force.
  • ESFP- The Distraction: The one causing the social commotion. Keeping everyone's eyes fixated on them, not the other crew members. Their job is to be more exciting then the surroundings.
  • ISFP- The Driver: They've taken driving to a whole new level, it's become an art form. Yes, all those cars are theirs.
  • jinjin: just letting u know beforehand that i get really sweaty and WILL be taking my shirt off

anonymous asked:

Lili Reinhart is not a good actress. She overacts & has 3 facial expressions. KJ Apa is a better actor than her, shown in the ice breaking scene, he doesn't get as many interesting scenes to perform. Lili is a gold digger and has just succeeded in making herself more famous. And it's funny u guys get crazy whenever Lili gets hate, but u couldn't care less when Camila gets called stalker for being friends with Cole, or when people hate on Charles or when ppl r happy that Lili won over KJ

“u guys” 

anyway my blog just lost it’s anon hate virginity. i really want to celebrate this monumental moment. :’) 

LMAOOOOO, but is this a real ask? Are you being serious? You really think I care about what you have to say about Lili? Like did you really just waste your time (and mine) by sending me this ask that I don’t give a shit about? You obviously know that I stan Lili so why do you think that I’d care at all about anything bad you have to say about her? Not a good actress? that’s funny.

@zumpie, i feel like maybe you’d get a laugh out of this. Lili? A gold digger? I don’t know whether to laugh or what.

Lili gets more hate than anyone on that damn cast. I really don’t care that you don’t like her or that you think she’s a gold digger. Like???? What the fuck are you expecting me to say to this? Take your opinion somewhere else and go spread your hate elsewhere because I don’t care for it at all. 

it’s incredible that i defended Lili and yet i somehow ended up getting an ugly anon like this. tragic :/

If you are a traditional artist, give a change to an erasing shield (or erase shield), it’s pretty cheap (around $4) and it can be really helpful when you want to erase a limited area. It’s a way better than a kneaded eraser, to be honest.

anonymous asked:

Ok but wasn't Jamie like super abusive to brienne like calling her wench and making comments about her appearance and constantly mocking her and literally engaging in deadly fights w her like doesn't she deserve someone better than that? Brienne is a great character, I really hope she doesn't end up with him, she deserves someone better, who's as loyal to her as she is to others

First of all. HIS NAME IS JAIME. God, people can spell Daenerys Targaryen and Khaleesi but can’t spell Jaime. incredible. 

Second of all I’ve been talking about this (well mostly reblogging stuff) extensively in the past few days and what y’all are not getting is that when it comes to their first interactions…Jaime was basically her prisoner. And I don’t deny he was an absolute idiot but I think that jumping in a bear pit  unarmed and putting himself between her and a bear kinda makes up for that. Also saving her from rape not once, but twice (the second time when he was almost delirious from…you know..having his hand cut off). Giving her a great sword, trusting her as a knight, punching people who disrespect her (i mean yeah i’m talking about the books here) and then abandoning his army and his sister to go with Brienne (into a trap btw//yeah yeah i’m still talking about the books) really makes up for calling her ‘ugly’. I mean, I know this website’s really concerned with appearances and very shallow but words matter less than actions and Jaime’s actions towards Brienne clearly show he’s capable of immense loyalty -and- sacrifice.

But, I mean, if people doubt Jaime’s a loyal and loving character they haven’t been paying any attention because that’s like..the core of his character.  And I doubt they will ‘end up together’ as I’m pretty sure at least one of them will die next season but in a kinder universe Jaime would be the perfect match for Brienne because he would respect her both as a woman and as a warrior and he wouldn’t use her to make ‘giant babies’ or whatever. They would probably just spar all day long and make sweet love in the evening. I’m sorry but Jaime and Brienne would be a perfect couple as she would tone down his impulsivity and nurture his vulnerable side and he would make her come out of her shell and laugh more, show her that life isn’t only oaths and duties.

ok but like

bryke went on and on about how zutara was so “dark and edgy” (still don’t get that, tbqh. kinda like when people think zuko is this “dark and suave and edgy” character, but really he’s just a giant dork. i feel like bryke has that same misunderstanding). 

yet in-show k@taa.ng sends such an awful message to kids? like, think of all the little boys that grow up to resent women for “putting them in the friend zone” and feel entitled to girls and women’s attentions and affections.

aang never really unlearned that mentality (and he VERY MUCH had that mentality). he just kind of gets what he wants. 

i mean, a lot of the messages sent by the way k@taa.ng was handled in canon are very…idk just not okay - at all. 

“he’s the main character and the hero! the trophy girl BELONGS to him! he DESERVES her!”

“look at the guys she’s been interested in! they’ve been awful and betrayed her! clearly, the Good Guy should be with her. she just doesn’t know what’s good for her! if only she’d give the Good Guy a chance!” (this one’s mostly aimed at jet, but i’ve seen it leveled at zuko which doesn’t really make sense on multiple levels because 1) zuko and katara are not shown in canon to have romantic interest in each other 2) zuko tries desperately to gain katara’s forgiveness not because he is interested in her but because he genuinely cares what she thinks of him and wants to be her friend - wanting her friendship shows how much he values her as a person and not something he deserves as a reward for Being The Hero *coughcough*)

“she’s uncomfortable with your romantic and physical advances. clearly she just is confused about what she wants! you know better! you belong together! keep persisting and she’s yours!”

tbqh, zuko showed so much more respect towards katara’s personhood. he showed a clear understanding of respecting people’s boundaries, and their experiences, and that they might have a different opinion than his own that is shaped by those things. he understood her, and when he didn’t he tried to, and not because he had some ulterior motive.

the same cannot be said for a@ng. even though i love a@ng, this was a serious character flaw - which would be fine! if he actually learned anything from it, or tried to change. 

the comics and tlok show how little he really changed, and there were never any real consequences for his shadier character traits. they were just “quirks” deserving of endless forgiveness and acceptance, and that “deserved” katara like some kind of prize for being The Savior.

and to me, that’s much darker of a message to send to kids than friends-to-lovers trope/people learning about their flaws and each other and bettering themselves through loving each other that would have been the clear direction of a zutara arc.

Lelouch from CG was an anti-hero, an antagonist and a villain all in one. As I’ve said in the previous reblog post, he was incredibly charismatic, intriguing and compelling. He showed varied emotions, from anger to regret to guilt to happiness. He had motivation and conviction to see his plan through but he also understood and regretted. He had connections with the characters around him, from his sister to Suzaku to his family and friends. You can see how well he was written and developed throughout the show. You rooted for him but you also hate him because he’s still a villain but one that you can sympathized and feel for and understand his motives. That is how a well written and developed character is. 

Charioce from SNB: VS on the other hand is a very poor, watered down version. He’s supposed to be the antagonist and villain of the entire series but you don’t get to see much of it all. His motivations and convictions were muddy, unclear and vague. He was not given any backstory of his past and his childhood. You don’t see him interact with much of anyone else in this instance to actually get a feel of him. They wrapped him up in mystery, gave him a very forced romantic love story with the female lead. Someone who is essentially just a blank cardboard villain with very little to go on save for the romance and those barely there expressions don’t cut for me. It does not work that way and it’s more likely to break the show or turn people off the character. Sure, he’s mysterious and complex but no background, no history can only keep someone interested for so long. 

The writers should have done better with him but they screwed this one up badly by thinking that the romance will be the redeeming point. It isn’t. If they had gave him a backstory little by little throughout the show, fleshed his character out, then maybe I could have find him interesting and might even understood him. Instead I get this so-called tyrant king with the vaguest expressions ever involved in some romance and that’s it. Little wonder his character felt so flat to me. 

If they wanted him to be like Lelouch, they’d failed on this part.

I can only say so much with these words you’ll never hear,

Gravity Falls Year One Anniversary: The Stanchurian Candidate

I was really excited to be chosen to participate in this event and get the episode I wanted! Good excuse to draw Tad again.

Since I couldn’t settle on one idea, I just drew a bunch of silly doodles based off of the episode. Hope you like them!
