it was surprisingly fun to make

Animating Pixar’s Coco

So I’m actually buddies with someone who was an intern on Coco’s production crew and a couple of the higher-up animators (like the lead person for making ALL the clothing in the movie) came to give a presentation to my school’s animation department a month before Coco was released. (privileges of having tons of Pixar employees who are alumni of my university!) 

Aside from getting to watch like TWENTY MINUTES OF FOOTAGE before most of the world (that’s right folks, I had an early ticket on this hype train!) he also walked us through some of the animation mechanics for the characters, which is surprisingly hands-on and full of cool problem-solving! 

Some fun Coco animation tidbits:

- Hector’s design gave everyone a headache, his holey clothes kept getting caught in his joints whenever they ran the clothing simulator program that is in charge of making cloth react realistically when draped over a moving model. Hector’s knee joints especially kept getting cloth stuck in them since his kneecaps are free floating. 

- Because of this there is what is essentially an invisible stretchy ace bandage wrapped around Hector’s knees that keep his bones looking loose while keeping his pant leg from getting caught when he moves. 

- They also built invisible walls on the inside of everyone's ribcage to make them a closed space so no fabric would get caught there either.

-Female skeletons in dresses have small spheres of wind effect (yes, you read that right) anchored to their knees that is programmed to always blow air outward a couple inches in every direction. If their skirts get too close to their knees the wind simply blows it away as they walk to keep their joints from catching on cloth. (Literally, who would have thought?)

- Speaking of dresses, remember Ernesto’s dying performance where there are dozens of big skirted dancers? Pixar had to COMPLETELY redesign their cloth simulators from the code up to cope with scenes like that, those simulators hadn’t been updated in YEARS, giving Coco a super boost in the clothing department.

- Thier motto was to “embrace the skeleton,” meaning that men had open shirts to show their ribs and women had waists that were cinched up to the vertebrae whenever possible. But in some cases, the unfamiliar outlines this created was a little too odd or unfamiliar looking. Male characters had the back of their jackets stiffened to give their shoulders a familiar sloping triangle shape for this reason

- Another problematic character, for this reason, was Tia Rosita, she’s literally big-boned, meaning that her pelvic bone was “basically a satellite dish.” (The animator’s exact words.) They didn't want the weird shape her skirts would make by dropping into her pelvis, so they ANIMATED A LARGE PILLOW TO SIT IN HER PELVIS. That’s right folks, Tia Rosita has a large soft pillow sitting in her pelvis the whole time that keeps a familiar rounded feminine shape about her.

Anyway, I’m totally obsessed with this movie from all angles and thought I’d share. I hope they have some of this in the bonus features when it comes out on DVD, the whole process is so cool!

THE POLL OF THE POLLS: HENRY AND MEGHAN´S WEDDING EDITION

I had so much fun gathering the results, less fun trying to make the charts when my laptop is, well, dead too (and my tablet as well), this last leg of the year has been basically hell for me in the technology department BUT here they are, the results.

TITLE

Surprisingly for me, there was a tie between Sussex and Clarence. Personally, I have always rooted for Clarence (it sounds posher and less weird than Sussex) but obviously, people have opinions about this lmao. More people thought HM will give them something unexpected and Nottingham was a little less popular but people told me that because it was no coincidence there was their first joint engagement (although I have no clue if there is in fact a Duchy of Nottingham). Suffolk and Windsor got the same votes but I am very surprised somebody voted for Windsor (I wouldn’t count on it but mostly because I despise David). But you’ll never know.

DESIGNER

Overwhelmingly popular is Erdem to be the designer of Meghan’s dress. Personally I would love that (because I love Erdem and his designs) but there is something inside me that’s telling me that that might not happen. Another popular choice was Stella McCartney (don’t know why) and Ralph and Russo (?) although the latters do make incredibly beautiful bridal gowns. Dior got a vote (although I don’t know why, as the label is french). i really liked someone mentioned an US designer, one of my favourites, Christian Siriano (let’s not forget Meghan is in fact, from the US so she can choose one fellow US citizen. Another one was Marchesa, even though this one is less likely than Christian. Vivienne Westwood, Roland Mouret and Temperley complete the british based labels that can pull off a wedding gown and lastly, my boy, my dad, my one and only Elie Saab got mentioned but my heart breaks wnen I say this one I don’t think it’ll happen. But a girl can dream.

TIARA

The Strathmore Rose was the most popular vote and a favourite of mine for a lot of time. People think a new one is likely too although I have asked the tiara moguls of the fandom and they say that is not in the cards for sure. The Lotus Flower, Teck Crescent were another popular choices. My personal favourite for her to wear, the Sapphire Bandeau was tied with the Lozegne. The Meander got a tad less votes than the previous two but surprisingly for me, a few mentioned she would wear flowers in her head instead of tiaras and another one said she wouldn’t wear a tiara at all. This one is the one I am most looking forward to.

DATE

10 different days were chosen for this and I loved the fact that most of you said it will take place in the last two weeks of May, especially the 25th. Personally I think it will happen the first two weeks of May (I voted for the 19th).

BONUS POLL

This one speaks for itself lmao

Thanks for participating, you guys are legends and hope you enjoyed the results! Please keep commenting if you agree with this and message me if you want to talk about it!

anonymous asked:

could you please do 3 11 16 23 and 30 for Mark and Wild if you’re still doing those?

Yep, of course! :D Thanks for sending this in!

3. Who is more into taking showers/baths together? Who tries to make it relaxing and who tries to make it sexy time? Wilford was the one to say they should start showering together, which Mark was a little hesitant with at first.  He eventually started liking their time together because it was surprisingly relaxing (that is until Wilford tries to make a move, and then it stops being relaxing) ;)

11.  Who makes fun of the other for having a crush on them, and who has to remind them that they are in a relationship? Surprisingly, Mark, but only since that’s his sense of humor.  Wilford just shakes his head fondly, pulling Mark closer to press a kiss to his temple or ruffle his hair

16. Who is more seductive when they are drunk? and who is louder in bed? Wilford is actually more seductive after a few drinks, to Mark’s surprise.  The ego acts with more confidence in a way that comes across smoother than when he’s sober.  Mark is the louder of the two, though Wilford can get close in volume as well 

23. Who thinks they are not good enough for the others love? and who’s more afraid of loosing the other? Who thinks they keep messing up, only for the other to tell them they don’t need to worry? Mark sometimes worries that he isn’t enough for Wilford, and that he’ll make a mistake one day that will drive the pink man away from him.  Wilford thinks that’s nonsense, and doesn’t hesitate to comfort him.  Wilford is the one whose afraid that he’ll lose Mark one day, which Mark thinks is crazy . Why would he ever leave someone as wonderful as Wilford?

30. Who is embarrassed when they have to wear their glasses and who thinks they look super cute? Wilford HATES wearing his glasses, but he has to deal with it some days.  Mark loves it when he wears them because it makes him look so much cuter and even a little younger.  He’ll tell Wilford that he looks cute with his glasses on, and Wilford gets all embarrassed and red (which makes him even cuter, in Mark’s opinion)

anonymous asked:

How’d you learn to draw mechas? I’ve been wanting to try that myself for a while, and I know as an artist that the only way to learn is to just Do it, but it’s so daunting! I have no idea where to begin. Do you have any advice or tips? Thank you for your time!

Okay first of all, sorry to take so long to answer. I really wanted to draw some pics for this, and the last weeks have been quite busy. 

1. Draw from the reference

Drawing is like learning a new language: You can’t say you wanna learn English and then just start making up your own words because you think that finding words in the dictionary is cheating - It doesn’t make sense. Find a super cool robot picture and try to copy it. These are called “studies” for a good reason. You’re studying the vocabulary of those drawings. Many times people don’t share their studies since it’s only for the practice. But don’t study just one person. You don’t want to become that person - you want to become better! And if you post your study online, don’t forget to credit the original artist!

2. Try different techniques

One of my favorite techniques is something I call color blocking - I’m not sure if it’s an actual term or just something I came up with. I kind of carve the silhouette of the robot with one color and then I add a second color and carve the details in. I do this also if I have a picture with lots of characters and I want to make sure everything reads correctly. But these are all personal matters. Try different techniques until you find a one that works for you. And remember to flip your canvas!!

3. Try different brushes

My favorite brushes vary, but these three are the ones I keep using more than the others. Kyle’s brush I got used to while I was working on my freelance work - it just feels good to draw with. The square one is really fun to work with in mecha designs, and the basic one also feels surprisingly good while drawing. Sometimes I just grab a new brush, start doodling, and end up with a decent piece.

4. Symmetry vs. asymmetry

This one I included especially because I’m talking about robots. Breaking up the machines with asymmetrical parts gives them more character BUT it’s important to keep the symmetry in mind. If I do a robot that has a one big arm and one small arm, I later make sure that most of the other parts are symmetrical. This way the asymmetry is the choice rather than a mistake.

5. Draw from the reference (!!!)

Yes, I added this the second time because I really feel it’s important! I use Pinterest all the time - I have a board with over 1000 pins of robots! There are paintings from my favorite robot artists, 3D models of super cool robot designs, and even photos of real robots all collected in one place. And for anyone who feels “wrong” doing this: Finding reference DOESN’T mean copying - it can be just an idea or inspiration: It’s finding the language you want to use. Sure you won’t need  the reference as much later on as you build your own “shape-vocabulary” - just like you won’t need your dictionary after you have learned the words you use.

6. It doesn’t have to be perfect

I’m never 100% happy with my work. But I have learned to say “oh well” and move on. Next time I’ll do better.

7. BE PROUD! 

Don’t talk down your own work no matter how much you’d like to. If you’re not standing behind your drawings, who will? Sure you do see the mistakes, but it’s still a great piece of art you made!

a few people asked, so this is literally the only other shot i took of this cosplay…whoops lol. also cosplay accuracy is hard when you are so very small good god

if anyone knows who this marcus is please let me know so i can tag him! he was awesome and also very tall

[Image Description: An infographic titled, “What Is Pansexuality?” in white text, over a light pink background, next to a graphic of a panda head, outlined in pink, yellow, and blue circles.]

Pansexuality Is…
The sexual attraction (pansexual) or romantic attraction (panromantic) to people of all gender identities.
It is also defined as attraction to people that is not determined by gender identity. [White text over a light yellow background, next to a light green check mark outlined in a blue square.]

Pansexuality Is Not…
Trans-inclusive. Anyone, of any identity can be attracted to trans people. That is not exclusive to pan people.
More inclusive than bisexuality. Sexuality is not about being inclusive and bisexuality does not adhere to the gender binary.
A new “Tumblr fad” or “freeing millennial lifestyle”. Pansexuality has been around for a long time, it is only now gaining more visibility. [White text over a light blue background, next to a light red cross mark outlined in a light pink square.]

What About Bisexuality?
Bisexuality is the attraction to people of two or more gender identities. There are similarities and overlap between pansexuality and bisexuality, but while different bisexual people can be attracted to different (amounts of) genders, pansexuality always comes down to being attracted to people of all gender identities. [White text over a light pink background, next to a golden scale outlined in a light yellow square.]

In Conclusion…
Pansexual/panromantic is just another label that helps people better understand and define their identity and put a name to what they’re feeling. If this is the label someone feels the most connected to and represented by, then please, respect that. Identifying as pansexual/panromantic does not hurt anyone, so again, respect that. [White text over a light yellow background, next to a thumbs up emoji with a green sleeve outline a light blue square.]

To kick off #PanWeek, we have an infographic explaining what pansexuality is, what it isn’t, how it differs from bisexuality, and how identifying as pan needs to be respected.

Shiro facts:

  • In elementary school he was labelled as a ‘gifted’ child and he’s spent his entire adult life working his ass off to keep up the ruse.
  • He and Matt switch off on being the responsible one when they’re together.
    • On that note, 70% of Shiro’s common sense goes out the window the moment he’s in the same room as Matt.
    • Conversely, Shiro becomes 120% more responsible when he’s in the same room as Keith.
    • When the three of them are all together, Shiro’s number one priority becomes keeping Keith alive, while Matt is focused on keeping Shiro alive.
  • Shiro basically took every mistake he ever made with Keith (which was a lot) and learned from them just in time for him to become a big brother to Pidge.
  • A lot of people assume Shiro is just another Garrison-jock but he’s surprisingly well-versed in a lot of science and technology due to all the time he’s spent around the Holts.
  • When he was a student, Shiro owned a pair of weed socks and he always wore them whenever he had an important flight/flight test because they gave him +10 confidence.
    • He also did this as an instructor.
  • Shiro probably should start wearing glasses, but he’s been making fun of Matt for so long (Shiro: (Matt voice) my glasses!! I can’t see without my glasses!! Matt: Haha, let’s see where you’ll be in twenty years, asshole) that he now stubbornly refuses to get a pair. His eyesight is still okay, but he refuses to acknowledge the inevitable.

MBTI stereotypes vs. How I see them irl

ENFP stereotype: crazy, always yelling, always crying, loud, obsessed with rainbows and unicorns for some reason.

ENFPs irl: being an ENFP myself I’ll say that we are so much more mellow than you’d expect. Some of us are actually kind of quiet and can get confused as introverts. We are excitable people, without a doubt, but we’re picky about who we want to be excitable around.

INFP stereotype: dark, brooding, always sad, poetic, cries a lot, takes everything personally, probably emo

INFPs irl: I won’t deny that INFPs definitely can be like this, but they’re also surprisingly playful & don’t show their emotions as much as you’d expect. Every INFP I’ve met is super witty and they always have the most perfect comedic timing! Seriously, y'all could be comedians. They can sometimes be smartasses and seem like INTPs, even ENTPs on the surface.

ISFP stereotype: hipster, emo, crybaby, manic pixie dream girl, tortured artist

ISFP irl: I won’t deny that the stereotype is pretty accurate. But like INFPs, they don’t show their emotions as often as you’d think. They actually come off as quite aloof and unemotional on the surface. Also; even though they’re sensors, they are very much like intuitives! I dated an ISFP and we used to have the most interesting conversations.

ESFP stereotype: party animal, attention whore, loud, annoying

ESFPs irl: Like the ENFPs, they’re surprisingly laid back. And some can be confused as introverts; they’re very similar to their ISFP “cousins”. Although ESFPs are party animals without a doubt, they have a surprisingly mellow vibe. They’re also a LOT smarter than you’d think.

ENTP stereotype: asshole, always debating, just dicks in general

ENTPs irl: I have a lovely ENTP teacher and my dad is an ENTP as well. Honestly, I think ENTPs are one of the thinking types that can often be confused to be feelers. They’re often VERY friendly and charismatic— sometimes even more so than ENFPs— and you’ll find that they’re surprisingly very emotional when you get to know them. Remember, kids: thinkers have feelings too, they just have a harder time grasping them than feeling types.

ESTJ/ENTJ stereotype: mean, bossy, stoic

EXTJs irl: Both of these types are stereotyped to be very mean & bossy people. They sometimes can come across like that, but often times when they’re being bossy, they’re only trying to help you. A lot of people misinterpret their actions. Yes, some EXTJs abuse their power, but a lot of them are just looking out for people and making sure they do the right thing. They’re also very fun & social if you become friends with them! They’re so much nicer than you’d expect. 

ISTJ stereotype: boring, hates people, stoic

ISTJs irl: They aren’t boring, just very mellow. Every ISTJ I’ve met has a very calm tone of voice. Like EXTJs, they can come off as bossy, but often times they’re only trying to help you. They definitely have a fun, charismatic side to them too.

INTJ stereotype: evil, hates people, antisocial

INTJs irl: Yeah, a lot of INTJs are like this. But they can be really good friends; they can just be quite picky about who they want to spend time with, because they’re often very very introverted. When you do get “chosen” by an INTJ, they’re actually super fun to talk to and be around. They have a soft, sweet side too that they’ll reveal to you if you get close enough. Like ISTJs, they’re often super mellow people.

ISFJ stereotype: pure, soft, will bake you cookies, very emotional

ISFJs irl: Alright. I’ll admit that the ISFJ stereotype is pretty spot on. But they’re also more smart & independent than you’d expect. They’re very caring about others, but will still go out and get what they want no matter what the cost; a confident ISFJ won’t be afraid to cut you out of the picture if you’re hindering their progress! They also give REALLY good advice. That’s typical of an XXFJ type though, tbh.

INFJ stereotype: extremely introverted. dark and brooding. probably psychic.

INFJs irl: I have an INFJ best friend and let me tell you, these types really do come off as extroverted! They can be very charismatic and chatty and are so much less mysterious/cryptic than you’d expect. They’re so fun to be around!! I’ll agree that they’re probably psychic though tbh. A lot of INFJs I’ve met have had weird spiritual experiences & predicted things that I never could have thought of before. They can also be huge party animals if you bring out their wild side!

ENFJ stereotype: typical “hero”, preachy, emotional, manipulative

ENFJs irl: I honestly don’t disagree with this stereotype. ENFJs can be manipulative, but they don’t always have malicious intent. They’re a little similar to EXTJs at times; they seem controlling, but often times they’re just trying to help. ENFJs sometimes get a bad rep, but I think they are super impessive and smart people. And yes, it’s true; they most likely know you better than you know yourself.

ESFJ stereotype: typical basic bitch, loud, charismatic, over emotional

ESFJs irl: I’d say the stereotype is true, but exaggerated. Some ESFJs can be a bit obnoxious, I’ll admit, but they’re usually super wonderful to be around. Their presence is often very fun & refreshing. They may seem smothering at times, but just know that deep in their heart it’s because they want to keep people happy. Every ESFJ I’ve met does their very best to put a smile on everyone’s face; they’re always joking around, giving out compliments, and giving out hugs. They often have good intentions with everything they do and you can just /tell/.

ESTP stereotype: daredevil, asshole, party animal, impulsive

ESTPs irl: They definitely have a tendency to be all of the above. But they’re also super friendly & charismatic, and very caring deep down. They’re also often really really smart, but don’t often show it unless you get them talking about a subject they’re invested in. When they’re not out partying and going wild, they are actually super chill people.

ISTP/INTP stereotype: assholes, nerdy, hates people, critical

IXTPs irl: Actually sweethearts. They often aren’t too great at expressing emotion, but they’re just so nice, they can even sometimes appear nicer than the IXFPs. They care so much for people without even realizing it. I dated an ISTP and he used to do the sweetest romantic gestures ever!! They come off as aloof, cold, and often robotic; but you still get a general sense that they care for the people around them, and they often truly do deep down.

why you should watch twisted: the untold story of a royal vizier

  • it’s a musical
  • it’s by the same people who did a very potter musical, so you know it’s good
  • it’s available for free on youtube, and the soundtrack isn’t very expensive, either
  • it gives the wicked treatment to jafar from aladdin 
  • (or ja’far, to get around copyright issues)
  • (actually a lot of the ways they get around copyright in this show are really funny)
  • “and may the rats ejaculate upon you”
  • the titular song literally gave me chills
  • “why is everyone in the kingdom white????”
  • really really good costuming and sets
  • TIGER FUCKER TIGER FUCKER TIGER FUCKER
  • there’s a song called “orphaned at 33″ and it’s fucking hilarious
  • the guy who plays aladdin is amazingly charming yet punchable at the same time
  • DYLAN SAUNDERS
  • poking fun at a lot of disney’s urban legends
  • the bad guys are from the kingdom Pik-zhar
  • “what’s that name, everyone?” “TIGER FUCKER!” “no!”
  • a genuinely touching and compelling love story told over the course of one song
  • a subplot that manages to make a surprisingly well-put point about consent and sex =/= love
  • “all this for a loaf of bread” (just wait until you hear it….)
  • PRINCE ACHMED
  • “I noticed you weren’t at dinner, but I saw you try to poison my wine! Usually when you do that it means you want to talk, so what’s up, are you mad at me?”
  • please just watch it because in my opinion it deserves just as much attention as a very potter musical

Dating Harry Hook would include…

  • Salty kisses
  • Harry teaching you how to fight
  • Stealing his hook when the two of you get into arguments
    “Y/n, love, don’t do something you’ll regret. Give me the hook back and we can forget this whole thing ever happen.” 
  • Being close friends with his younger and older sister
  • Harry being possessive over you
  • When you first met Uma she would be highly skeptical over you 
  • But after seeing how happy Harry when around you, she started to take a liking towards you
  • Gil would become a sort of brother figure to you after some time 
  • An extremely airhead type of a brother but still a brother nonetheless
  • Flirtatious comments left and right which consist of,
  • “Hey darling, want to compare tan lines?”
    and…
    “I don’t know if you’ve ever been fishing, but I think we should hook up.”
  • Which would earn a slap
  • He would probably steal you gifts 
  • “Harry… where did you get this necklace? There’s blood all over the chain.”
    “Yeah about that-”
  • Getting a tad bit jealous when you see Harry flirting with other girls. You knew it was just his nature and he meant no harm but it still got under your skin.
    “Aw darling, is someone turning into a green monster? You know those girls don’t mean a thing to me. You’re the only one I care about.”
  • He would love interrupting you with kisses
  • A lot of teasing and playful banter
  • Harry becoming extremely jealous over you close friendship with Jay and Carlos
  • Just as you become a bit envious over his tight knit bond to Uma
  • Adventuring around the Isle together
  • Helping Harry do his eyeliner on mornings when he’s too tired and him doing yours
  • He’d be a touchy boyfriend and constantly have his arm around your shoulder
  • PDA all the time
  • He’s not a huge fan of saying ‘I love you’ and extremely mushy stuff but he shows his affection for you in other ways
  • Like holding your hand and helping you onto the ship
  • And defending your honor by punching out some bloke who made a rude comment about you 
  • Accidently scratching you with his hook which he spends weeks apologizing for, hardly daring to touch you in fear of it happening again
    “Harry, accidents happen! It’s okay, you can hardly even see the mark.”
    “I don’t care if you can’t see it, love. I hurt you and I promised to never do that.”
  • Finally getting him to cave in after putting on a show of fake tears which he catches onto moments after pulling you into his chest
    “You tricked me? I’m actually impressed, sweetheart.” 
  • You two would be a very fun loving and humorous couple that knows how to have a good time
  • Having to pull Harry back down when he gets a little out of hand
    “Harry chill, I think they get the message.” 
  • Harry begging you to let him try to braid your hair 
  • And he surprisingly does a nice job
  • “Yeah, my mom wasn’t around much so I had to learn myself. My sisters had the best hair stylist the Isle has ever seen!”
  • Stealing his hat on multiple occasions 
  • His large ego would be the root of most of your fights
  • But he would make it up to you by forcing you to cuddle with him at night as a form of apology 
  • Most of all, Harry putting your safety and security above everyone else’s including his own

Ballerina!Eddie meets Richie Tozier Headcanon

- Richie legitimately laughed his ass off when he found out Stan did ballet

- It was around 5:37 when Bill said he had to go pick up Stan

- At first Richie assumed that it was from a bird watching club meeting

- He didn’t really want to go back to his dorm because he had nothing to do plus Mike was out so it was empty

- Bill offered him to come along and he said yes

- The drive wasn’t too far from campus so he definitely knew it wasn’t an emergency bird watch meeting. They pulled up in front of a dance studio

- ‘A dance studio? Stan the Man actually dances?’

- ‘S-s-shut up Richie.’

- Richie could hear soft music as they walked down the halls of the building

- When they stepped into a room, richie couldn’t help but die from laughter

- Stan ‘The Man’ Uris was standing across the room wearing tights and a t-shirt

- As Stan approached the two of them he rolled his eyes knowing he’d get shit from Richie. He greeted Bill with a kiss and ignored Richie

- Richie stayed kinda quiet at first, still snickering to himself while he looked around the room

- The first words to come out of his mouth a few seconds later were ‘And here I thought you couldn’t get any more –‘

- He kinda trailed off when something caught his eye

- Across the room to the left was a boy. A pretty boy in fact

- He had his leg lifted in what Stan would later tell him was a ‘leg extension’

- ‘– gay…’

- The short boy across the room was talking to two girls

- One a red head that Richie knew to be Beverly Marsh and a brunette that Richie knew as Beverley’s roommate, Olivia whatshername

- When the boy put his leg back down and slid into a split Richie practically passed out

- This boy was tiny, flexible, and seemed so fucking cute already

- He couldn’t stop staring

- Stan nudged Bill when he saw drool start coming out of Richie’s mouth

- ‘St-stop staring at E-eddie, Rich’

- ‘Staring? What? I’m not staring, I’m admiring the view’

- On Eddie’s side of the room Liv and Bev were laughing

- ‘Don’t look now Eddie but it seems like you have an admirer’

- ‘Liv what the hell are you talking about?’

- Eddie tried to look behind him but got a smack to the head from Bev

- ‘She just said not to look oh my God’

- So he didn’t look but he wanted to

- Turns out he didn’t have to wait for long

- Richie practically dragged Stan over pestering him into introducing the two

- Eddie was confused but the looks he got from his two friends said it all

- The boy in front of Eddie had glasses that were taped with black electrical tape in the middle

- His hair was a mess, he had so many freckles and his glasses were huge

- The boy in front of Richie was short

- Of course that was the first thing he noticed

- He also noticed that he had freckles dusting his cheeks and nose

- His eyes were brown almost like his fluffy looking hair

- He glanced at Stan to say something and when he didn’t, he shoved his elbow into Stan’s side. Which in return, he got one from Stan and a sigh

- ‘Bev, Liv, Eddie meet Richie. Richie meet Bev, Liv and Eddie’

- Richie waved to the girls he already knew

- He stuck out his hand to Eddie with a smile

- Eddie of course was hesitant, this was a stranger…who knew where his hands had been!

- He timidly shook Richie’s hand though

- It was a surprise that the two got to talking quickly

- Richie seemed to ask Eddie questions that were basically challenges in his eyes

- ‘I bet you can’t lift your leg OVER your head’

- He almost tripped over himself when Eddie did it. And he almost died when he tried to do it

- The two exchanged numbers when Eddie had to leave as Bev’s boyfriend Ben showed up (he was Eddie’s ride)

- ‘I’ll text you soon Eds!’

- ‘Never call me that ever again’

- From then on Richie started showing up at or after practices on Mondays and Fridays

- He claimed it was to make fun of how ridiculously gay Stan looked

- But Stan called him ridiculously gay whenever he caught Richie staring at Eddie

- Which was like all the time

- Richie started showing up to recitals too

- He sat next to Ben Hanscom who came to support his girlfriend

- Surprisingly, he actually enjoyed watching everyone dance

- Eddie was constantly teased over the fact that Richie came to practically every practice and recital

- His face was always red from his friends’ pestering

- Richie always had flowers with him for each recital. He’d give Eddie a bouquet of flowers that Eddie wasn’t allergic too

- And that was tough shit to find

- ‘You did great up there Eddie Spaghetti! And you did okay Stan’

- He’d give Stan and the girls a flower every once in a while to be try and be nice

- One thing Richie liked about Ben was that Ben could listen to his gay ranting over Eddie

- Mainly because he was the same about Bev

- Mike eventually went to a recital too. He wanted to see if this ‘Eddie’ person was as good as Richie made him out to be

- Long story short, he was

- The whole group was great, not a surprise

- Mike made quick friendships with everyone because he was so nice and actually interested in what they did

- He and Ben became pretty close since they’re history nerds and Ben could tell him about the history of Ballet

- It’s completely obvious that Eddie and Richie like each other

- There’s an ongoing bet about who will make the first move

- Bill started it with Liv, Liv said Eddie but Bill said Richie

- Stan said Eddie because, ‘Richie’s too much an idiot to do something right’

- Bev said Richie and got Mike & Ben to join in too because why not. Literally everyone except Stan and Liv said Richie would

- Eddie had been practicing so hard for a month straight on the one move he had to do during that dance

- He was completely dedicated but so worried he couldn’t do it

- He practiced for what seemed for ever. He got encouragement from everyone though

- Richie would take him to the studio on weekends for extra practices

- He’d sit to the side and just watch how graceful his crush friend was

- The night of the recital, Richie sat in the front row watching. The other Losers, who weren’t dancing, sat next to him supporting

- Eddie nailed the move he was worried over

- The Losers cheered for him because ‘HELL YEAH THAT’S MY FRIEND UP THERE’

- Richie cheered the loudest duh

- When the recital was over, Bill gave Stan a kiss, Ben held Beverly close and sweetly

- Liv stood alone because she’s a loser. Mike talked with everyone while Richie stood with Eddie

- Richie gave Eddie his flowers and congratulated him

- ‘See? There was nothing to worry about, you did great Eds’

- Eddie didn’t acknowledge the nickname he loved hated

- He took the flowers with a smile and took Richie by surprise when he raised up on his toes for a kiss

- It was a little awkward as Richie wasn’t expecting it, but it was cute at the same time

- Of course you had their friends in the background shouting

- ‘I told you bitches that he’d do it now pay me my fucking money’

- ‘Shut up Liv, but I want my money too guys’

Aries: loud af, super fun, changes the music and dances by themselves, sometimes a bit of a dick (in the BEST WAY POSSIBLE), makes everyone dance with them, the one usually to come up with an idea to ride down a hill on some cardboard they found (SO FUN), probs will steal a sign

Taurus: probs drunk eating or hanging out in the kitchen, always on the look out for food or a snuggle, really well dressed and presented, super touchy and affectionate (often they’re not super affectionate), SUPER giggly lmao, almost a mom-friend but if you’re not a CLOSE friend they rly will not give a fuck, will very likely take off their clothes bc they feel so restricted

Gemini: giggly as hell, absolute SHIT talker, could probably win a debate with their confidence when drunk, tends to like run away, ditzy and off the planet entirely, somehow manages to talk with everyone at the party, doesn’t really remember their names, accidentally flirty but only bc they are on their own level

Cancer: Super mom-friend if you’re a close pal, will not give a fuck if you’re not close, really loves food, tends to be super fun and captivating, really social and flirty, doesn’t take it anywhere though so when it gets more than flirty they kinda just… leave that situation, can get offended rly quickly but also as quickly is laughing in the centre of the room
