Hi, so I kind of had a weird request, it's different than the usual, I want the rfa reacting to MC and Saeyoung dating and being clingy, pda and stuff, like continuing from 707s after ending, and if it's not much trouble, rfa reacting to jumin and mc dating and also pda etc etc, if you decide to do it thank you in advance, if not, I understand, it might get quite long, nontheless thank you!!
IMMA DO ALL OF EM what i kinda planned is under each member the headcanons will be how the other members react to them and MC ((idk if that makes sense but let’s see if this works out~~))
✮ everyone thinks y’all are goddamn adorable ✮ because yoosung is such a virgin ✮ so you gotta be innocent as well to protect him ✮ jaehee is lowkey jealous bc your relationship is just so cute ✮ but she’s hella supportive and Mom Mode is on because ‘omg look at her two children go’ ✮ zen often gives relationship advice to yoosung ✮ tries to be genuine but he complains about being single so much more ✮ jumin probably couldn’t care less ✮ but when you both send photos of the other (or both of you) with your cat Lisa he’s like ‘!!! CAT’ ✮ says it’s cute (you both just take the compliment, knowing very well he’s only talking about lisa) ✮ seven pranks yoosung even more but now he does it involving you ✮ as in, saying things like ✮ ‘YOOSUNG, MC JUST CALLED ME FROM THE HOSPITAL?!?!?!’ ✮ and yoosung fuckin fREAKS out ✮ he’s crying and shaking and he’s about to Zoom to the hospital ✮ until you call seven out on his shit (yoosung cried a little more while clinging on to you) ✮ yoosung will dubiously mistrust seven forever
✎ she is hardly the one to do pda and be cutesy and stuff so it’s totally up to you ✎ you like to send photos and selfies of you two working at the cafe ✎ and when she’s completely engrossed in one of zen’s things ✎ zen is highkey jealous upset. he just wants all the attentions and now the only two females in the RFA clearly aren’t romantically interested in him anymore ✎ jumin was kinda surprised by the whole ‘coming out’ bit when you announced y’all were in a romantic relationship ✎ but he put away his salt about jaehee quitting and is probably the most supportive of the relationship (bc he says that jaehee is super responsible and that you’re patient and just all around great) ✎ yoosung probably gets turned on by it ✎ you know he’s That Guy ✎ but other than that he doesn’t really say a lot about it ✎ he also complains about being single a lot more ✎ seven makes fanart and writes fanart 140%
✿ you think he’s a narcissist now? ✿ BOI ✿ ALL THE SELFIES. ALL OF THEM. SPAMS THE DAMN CHAT. 16+ PHOTOS A DAY ✿ also says stuff like ‘we’re the perfect couple. there is no couple cuter than us. we should be you #goals’ ✿ yoosung is jealous af ✿ so is jaehee ✿ JAEHEE WRITES FANFICTION ✿ she actually probably has a joint ao3/tumblr/wattpad with seven ✿ jumin is Salt ✿ but he brings up the point of if zen has enough time for you between all his acting and singing and all that other stuff ✿ and zen sends back a candid photo of you talking to his director ✿ is like ‘HA’ ✿ seven likes to make sex jokes all the damn time ✿ definitely makes jokes about The Beast
₩ it would probably be really cute ₩ but when he tries to send photos of you/you with elizabeth/him and you/all 3 ₩ they’re always B L U R R Y ₩ so you teach The Jumin Han how to take a selfie ₩ zen is probably uncomfortable and also very salty ₩ jaehee appreciates the relationship because jumin is always in a better mood and you can convince him to give her breaks and paid vacation ₩ so she lowkey loves y’all ₩ yoosung could probably give less than a shit ₩ he’s just playing LOLOL alone ₩ but he kinda likes it because you can get Jumin to ease up on jumin’s LOLOL bashing ₩ seven also makes sex jokes ₩ ‘have you ever made MC wear cat ears?’ ₩ “Great idea Saeyoung” ₩ everyone is !!!!!! ₩ you try not to kill him
⌨ he doesn’t like photos of him bc y’know ⌨ privacy ⌨ so you try to take selfies with him without him realising ⌨ so the result is blurry photos with your face in the bottom corner laughing and saeyoung in the close background falling off his chair because he tried to chase you ⌨ everyone lowkey loves the relationship because you two are always really happy together ⌨ zen of course is salty because ‘he never leaves the house but gets a girlfriend?!’ ⌨ seven likes teasing everyone about his Catch ⌨ so he’ll send random photos of you. always ⌨ ‘look how cute MC is awwwww’ ⌨ everyone, but especially Jaehee, really like and appreciate how you support each other’s emotions ⌨ once made you dress up as a cat (like with the ears, maybe a tail with a questionable explanation of how it’s staying there) ⌨ took a picture you thought was ~private~ ⌨ but he POSTED IT ON THE CHAT ⌨ WITH THE CAPTION ⌨ ‘jumin you were right~~ i am a cat abuser ;;;)))‘ ⌨ you scream and spam the chat trying to make sure no one sees it
okay so once i finished this i realised it was kind of only pda through the chat?? if you want another set where it’s more in person?? then definitely feel free to send in another request!
honestly i dont really have an excuse for this i just?? need it.,,
- keith sometimes kisses the nape of lances neck which gives him a sense of security and comfort and…. its nice,
- post-mission means cuddling with blankets..! dont tell me that lance isnt an expert at making blanket forts out of almost nothing?? look me in the eye and convince me if u can
- lances room is a constant blanket fort after the first time they made one and they decorate it a little with things they find from different planets - usually what reminds them of home
- the fort also evolves over time and lance did u convince coran to find another blanket again,
- they like holding hands whenever they can, whether its just their pinky’s touching or lacing their fingers together they do it a lot,, they also do it during dinner and try to be discreet but honestly evERYONE KNOws and its ok…. its ok :’’’)
- NOSE KISSES
- sometimes when keith feels bad/agitated or down about the galra thing and stuff lance will comfort him with small pecks on the cheek or simply just hold his hand and squeeze it ever so slightly,, its enough to make keith feel calm and more able to try and talk about his frustrations and feelings
- when lance is homesick or insecure keith is there doing the exact same thing for him and lance really appreciates it and after a while of silence keith will simply list good traits and things about lance that he likes and when he gets a smile out of him he’ll ask lance to tell him about his life at earth (his mother, what was he like in school before garrison?, did he often tease his siblings when he was younger?, favorite movie, describing his childhood bedroom, etc)
- lance starts talking vividly and keith likes to listen, loves to see lance’s smile and they’ll keep holding hands until they have to do something else/get up from their current positions
- keith doesnt have a lot of items since he didn’t really bring anything with him to space but sometimes when he gets up before lance to train or whatever, he leaves his jacket near lance/in the room as a way to say “ill be back” (its a gesture that makes lance happy because it confirms to him that keith wants to be with him and wants to come back)
- keith doesnt really care a lot for skin care and so, but he likes to watch and listen as lance goes thru his routine and sometimes he even lets lance do it on him because theres stars in the boy’s eyes everytime he gets a ‘yes’ and oh my god its too cute to resist
- generally just. keith and lance being happy 2kforever and when theyre sad they comfort each other and its, good.
An open call for episode transcripts from our Travelers, struggles in creating the Penumbra as a small team, and why we need your help
UPDATE: Some extremely generous fans have stepped up to organize @thepenumbrapodcasttranscripts , so please head over there if you would like to participate! We are deeply touched by the speedy response to this post.
Hey there Travelers,
Kevin here. Over the thirteen months since the Penumbra’s first episode, we’ve received a lot of requests from fans for access to episode transcripts. Many of you have contacted us with well-reasoned arguments about accessibility for those with hearing and processing disabilities. Many of you have expressed frustration about the $7 Patreon reward level, at which donating patrons get to look at the scripts the actors see.
We’ve stayed quiet on this so far, but we haven’t been ignoring you. We recognize your frustration. We apologize if the packaging of our show has made you feel like we don’t notice you, or listen to you, or care about you. We do. Internally we’ve been discussing this for months – and after debating it and trying a lot of things, we’ve come to what we think is the only conclusion that makes sense given our situation. I’ll tell you the conclusion first, and then move backward to our reasoning:
We are asking for help from you, the fans, in making these transcripts a reality. If fans create a tumblr or website that features fan-made transcripts of every episode, we will gladly post a link to it on our website and promote it whenever a new transcript has been completed.
We have asked for this from you all before, but it understandably got lost in the weeks and months that have passed since. As a result, should fans express interest in creating transcripts, we will be reblogging this post once every two weeks until all of the transcripts have been completed.
We recognize that it is frustrating not having the supports you need to access our show as others can. We recognize that asking fans to create those supports is also frustrating. Please know that we are frustrated, too. We are living a very uncomfortable, very difficult reality in creating this show, and up until now we’ve kept the details of that reality invisible to you all. But if I can ask for just a few minutes of your understanding, I hope I can communicate clearly about the obstacles in the way of us creating these transcripts, which are also, not coincidentally, the biggest threats to the Penumbra’s continued existence in general.
What follows is an in-depth look at my reasoning. If you’re satisfied with the above, hey, skip it! You can find the couple of transcripts we had time to make here (as well as one by a fan who asked to be credited as subtlepuns), so go for it, work together, create a platform for them, and feel free to use what we’ve made to get you started. If you’re still bothered, or you don’t understand why we can’t just make all the transcripts ourselves, I ask only that you read and think about our position, here. It is not one made hastily.
Summary: It’s like every single Alpha on the planet won’t rest until they’ve confessed their eternal wish for you to mother their children, and it’s getting old. Luckily, that’s a problem Bucky might be able to fix.
Warnings: sexual harassment, language, a/b/o dynamics
A/N: sooo its finally here! the a/b/o fic nobody asked for. this is my take on the dynamic and it’s kind of different (but not really) to what i’ve seen on here before but hopefully you guys like it! i promise it’ll be a LOT more smutty than my series usually are, but im gonna make yall work for it first. feedback is always appreciated! message me if you wanna be tagged :)
Natasha is waiting in your office when you return to Stark Tower, barely flinching when you slam the door shut and immediately collapse on the small couch against the wall. Nat undrapes her legs off your desk and pads over to you to sit crossed-legged by your head, putting on an exaggerated pout. It’s probably unwise to side-glare an international assassin turned Avenger, but you do it anyway.
You close your eyes and fill up Nat’s expectant silence with, “Why are all Alphas the biggest fucking assholes on the planet?”
“I don’t know,” Nat says with a wistful sigh, “It must be in our DNA.”
So I was all set to be writing my usual angst. I called for inspiration from the universe and Dan responded by posting a picture in the new flat and it completely derailed me. What happened next was this.
As a side note, I wrote this very quickly and it hasn’t been edited so I apologise for any errors. I just have a lot of feelings.
(1.4k, Fluff, fluffiest fluff, moving house)
Until Dan and Phil can make the new place theirs, its still different and unfamiliar. For now, they’ll just have to be each other’s little piece of home.
Requested: Yes!Can you please write an imagine about Gray? Where you have panic attacks and when he finds out, he gets really protective. He never wants to leave you alone! THANKYOUUUU
It was a Thursday morning, Grayson and you were trying to figure out a plan for today. You had both been really busy this week with his video and your job, so you hadn’t got to spend much time together. After about an hour of debating, you both decided to go to the beach. As you arrived, you found a clear spot on the beach and laid out for a little bit in the sun, just catching up and joking around. When it got hot enough, Grayson joined you to go for a swim. Splashing around in the water with him, you got cooled off and headed back for the sand. As you got settled for soaking up the sun, Grayson started talking about what their next video would be about and you suddenly heard another voice. “Grayson?!” You heard a girl shrill. You peeked up from your position and found a girl standing about 20 feet away. He smiled at her and walked halfway to meet her.
When Grayson called you over to take a picture for the fan and himself, you noticed a herd of other girls running towards your position. You tried to remain calm and untouched by this, but you could feel your breath getting shorter with each step they took towards you. You handed the girls’ phone back to her and tried to prepare to yourself with what was to come. The group were about 10 feet away and your hands began to shake. “Gray,” you tried to tell him, but he couldn’t hear you over the yelling and commotion the girls were making. Your world was spinning by now and you felt like you couldn’t move. Tears streaming down your face, you reached for Grayson. “Grayson,” It came as a whisper. Not being able to control yourself any longer, tears and sobs came with no intent of stopping and your chest tightened, squeezing the air from your lungs. “Hey.. What’s wrong with, Y/N?” You faintly heard one girl ask Grayson. You felt Grayson’s hands on your face. “Babe? What’s wrong? Talk to me!” He spoke to you quick and concerned. You couldn’t make a single word come out, but you shook your head violently and motioned towards your chest. “I think she’s having a panic attack!” Another voice made its’ way into your ears. Trying to confirm, you made your head bob up and down. “Well, what do I do?” Grayson’s voice was panicked and worried. The voice told him that each person’s panic attacks were different, but just try to calm you down by making you feel safe.
Without hesitation, he pulled you in his arms and stroked your back with light fingers. Usually this would calm you, but it wasn’t helping right now. “It’s not working. It’s not working!” Grayson pulled away from you, trying to figure out what to do next. It sounded like each girl in the group of thirty something were trying to help Grayson in this situation. He gently placed his hands on your face and his voice was soft and slow. “Y/N, listen, I’m right here. You’re gonna be okay. You’re fine.” Hearing him so calm made your heart slow just the tiniest bit. He looked into your eyes and, suddenly, you saw in his eyes that he knew what he needed to do. In an instant, his lips were against yours and your breath seemed to come back. When you felt back to normal, you pulled away and put your hands on his bare chest which heaved with each breath he took. “Thank you,” you whispered against him. “Are you okay? I was so worried about you.” Grayson held you against him. You told him you were fine, but you just get panic attacks sometimes when you get overwhelmed. “Baby, I promise that you’ll never be alone in this situation ever again. I’m so sorry.” Grayson took your hand before apologizing to the fans, saying that you guys were leaving so you could rest. You tried to tell him you were fine, but he wouldn’t have it. For the rest of the day, Grayson did anything you wanted or needed him to and took care of you, telling you that you needed your rest.
Hi, I wanted to ask you a question! Your monsters are all A+ Super Cool, how do you design them? Like, do they start out as rough ideas/sketches you refine, or do they come out entirely as they are? Do you ever design characters by going like "ok I want a dude made of sugar, here's a few different concepts for that" or do you typically know what you want? Sorry if these seem like odd questions, I just really admire you and would like a look into your design process ^u^
Thank you very much, aha dang! Good questions, sure I can go through my thought process, its not super impressive or drawn out at all, but it’s what works for me and others.
For any character it all starts with a rough idea/concept. Usually my characters are based off of one or more particular animal/shape/object/theme, etc.
It takes some experimenting to see which things mesh together well, or what can be mixed together to make something different and creative.
And then from there I start to gather more resources to draw inspiration from. These resources could be from online, comics, books, TV shows, movies, real life, personal experience, other artists, etc. anywhere.
It’s a good idea to stockpile pictures and links into folders so you can look at them later. Who knows! You might find something you forgot about and then want to use in the future.
Your example: A character made of sugar
Simply by googling “Sugar” I’m given an array of good reference pictures, and the ideas already start to pop up. If I were to go with a Sugar approach, I’d probably throw in some sugar cookie and candy heart inspiration~ (because I really love sprinkles and bright colors~)
The whole process for me is: think of a starting theme (ex. sugar), google references and inspiration, look in other media for other traits, use references + inspo to draw a rough-draft, pleased with draft = finalize design.
Once the character is designed they are open to changes and tweaks down the road. Remember! It’s okay to update your character’s design. The first drawing of them doesn’t mean their appearance is set in stone.
Maybe like? 80% of the time I already have an idea of what I want. After I see a couple pictures my imagination kicks in and I start drawing out the rough draft.
And it’s fine to not know exactly what you want at first. Be open to inspiration from surprising places! And as always: Keep practicing, show everyone what you can create~!
I'm a different anon & I've noticed that trend in trans guy roadrat (either one, tho it's usually junkrat) fics too. & as a trans guy it's been slowly making me more & more uncomfy. I was excited that so many people had trans junkrat headcanons when I first got into the fandom b/c I really identify w/ him but constantly having his junk being called 'vagina' & 'clit' in fic is just really disheartening & not very accurate?? I think I've read one single fic where he called it his 'little cock' 😧
Yeah. I don’t know what, if anything, we can do about it.
*offers hugs from afar*
PSA CIS ROADRAT WRITERS: Writing a trans man is NOT the same as writing a cis woman.
i used to be pretty into the concept of shapeshifting monsters or otherwise exceptional characters being able to change their bodies and be interpreted as whatever gender was associated with their new body. because, you know, i was a scared trans kid who desperately wanted that kind of ability. and even now characters like that can be a comfort.
but like, now that im a little older and more settled in my trans-ness ive realized that “x character was seen solely as a man but then they shapeshifted into a curvy long-haired big-breasted woman and now everyone sees them solely as a woman” isnt actually all that radical. especially when paired with continuous transphobic language from other characters which is usually never adressed (”she used to be a man but-” “hey werent you a he?” etc etc) honestly its more on par with shitty genderbend tropes and cis transformation p*rn.
but since trans shapeshifters are a part of my personal history and still have a spot in my heart, here’s what i would like to see from an improved version of that trope:
trans shapeshifters taking different forms but keeping the same pronouns/gender identifiers, making it clear that appearance or presentation =/= gender
trans shapeshifters exclusively taking on non-gendered/androgynous forms regardless of how they id
trans shapeshifters taking on gendered forms that don’t 100% fit the mold of conventional masculinity/femininity/androgyny/beauty at all
trans shapeshifters that only change some gendered aspects of themselves and again don’t aim for pure conventional femininity/masculinity
trans shapeshifters that make it clear whatever form they take isn’t for the benefit of other people
Hi Bree! I dug up a nice little spell that tests a relationship through three trials that can either make or break them. There's a lot of differing opinions on whether or not it's a curse and I was wondering what your opinion would be. Thank you for your time, you're one of my favorite witch blogs on Tumblr. :)
I think it could go either way, really. From what I’ve seen of your practice, I’m convinced you could pull it off, there’s no question there. But think of it this way.
In order for something to be tested, it must be put under stress. In the case of relationships, that usually means something bad has to happen, hence the old wives’ recommendation of being together through a birth, a death, and a wedding somewhere in the family before you consider your relationship a strong one. (Modern philosophers might also add “financial hardship,” since that’s the most commonly cited single cause of divorces in America and has been for years.)
So yes, I think this COULD be a curse, if you spun it that way, and even if it was meant to be helpful, it could still be problematic. Either way, it’s going to cause hardship because that’s the only way to reliably test a romantic bond. (Stuff like this is why I always say love magic is trickier than cursing. SO many variables!)
A spell that deliberately stresses a relationship is going to one of two
things: strengthen the relationship, or end it. As long as you’re okay
with either of these outcomes, and the accompanying hardship that’s going to appear in your life, I’d say go for it. Just be prepared going in.
Fair warning, the picture PETA published, which I will be including, is gory and bloody.
So here we go.
A few weeks ago, I first saw this PETA campaign picture:
As someone who works with sheep and shears sheep to pay for extra expenses, I was outraged. I had no clue what they did to that poor lamb (Found out its a foam replica). Besides the fact that it looks too small to shear, it looks like someone took a chain saw to it, or it was skinned not sheared.
So I wanted to address this. In shearing a sheep, goat, cow, or pig, you do not want to cut the animal. If its done right, you will not cut the animal. I know its hard not to let nicks happen. Animals move, jump, and flinch. Most shearers take very good care of their animals. If I, for example as a shearer, cut up the sheep I’ve been assigned to shear to the point where they have open and bleeding cuts, I would not be asked back. I would not have another job. Word gets around fast about shearers that hurt and cut up the sheep. Several years ago, there was a group of guys that sheared sheep for the members of the local herding dog club. They mishandled sheep and just moved speedily through them, leaving ewes bloody and stressed. You wanna know what happened to that group? They’re no longer in business. They don’t shear because word got around that they mishandled the animals.
I will say, shearing sheep is a tiring job that will leave you sore at the end of the day, no matter if you do one sheep or one hundred. I only average 3-6 sheep a day, so I have to give it to any shearer that shears whole herds in a day, from 30-100. Its hard work, but they do a good job.
Shearing, in its process, is simple. You restrain the sheep, either by setting it on its rear off its feet or tying it to the fence. You have to restrain the sheep or you could injure it if it tries to run or squirm. You then use a set of shears, manual or electric, to shave off the hair. Its just like how we shave, but we use a razor. Sheep are not hurt, and the process can be from a few minutes to an hour (like me). Shearers are paid by the quantity of sheep (usually) not the hours of work. This means that the shearers can spend the time to make sure the sheep get sheared right.
Below, I’m posting some pictures of what sheep really look like after they’ve been sheared:
These are from two different herds that I helped with this past spring. It was a relief for these sheep to be sheared.
But why do we shear sheep?
We sheer sheep for a variety of reasons. For the number one reason, its to remove the hair from the sheep. Sheep started as being used for wool and meat. Early sheep farmers cut off the sheep’s wool to be used for clothing, bedding, and other clothe items that came with eating the sheep too.
Now, farms that raise sheep for anything but wool or hair production, we shear the sheep to keep them comfortable. Where I’m from and where I go to college now, its not unusual for temperatures to be over 100 degrees F for the majority of the day, sheep with a full coat of wool/hair are miserable! It can also be deadly. They can’t cool down like they should and are very susceptible to over heating and heat stroke. That’s why we shear in the spring, before it gets too hot. It also allows the sheep to grow a little bit of wool back to act as sunscreen. We also shear off the wool/hair yearly to keep sheep clean. As sheep poop and pee, it gets on their wool/hair. As their wool/hair grows, it can cover up the sheep’s back end, and eventually, the anus of the sheep. That will make it very easy for bacteria to get back up into the sheep’s body and make them sick or even kill them.
So in conclusion, this sums up my point:
Shearing the sheep doesn’t hurt it. It certainly doesn’t kill the sheep. Its actually beneficial for the sheep to be sheared.

“Has anyone seen Jaeger?”
The hall went silent as Levi’s words echoed in the wake of his steps, frown deepening as he anxiously continued his search. He’d been looking all around town, knocking on doors and asking if they’d seen Eren anywhere and was met by head shakes and shrugs. The military base was his last resort and even that proved to be a dead end.
He could feel himself losing grip; jaw clenched tight and hands balled into fists as he struggled to regulate his breathing when he heard footsteps racing behind him in the hall.
“Captain Levi!” Jean called out of breath as he tried to catch up to him. “I saw him a couple of hours ago, sir, said he was gonna head home for the day.”
Levi’s shoulders sagged a little bit and he managed to nod tersely dismissing Jean. The weight on his lungs lessened for the time being but the urgent need he felt to find Eren only increased as his mind started to panic no matter how much he tried to calm himself down.

Once Vernon realized that he got himself a bad girl, It was over. He always felt more powerful than he was and loved the idea of doing crazy things with you since you were so adventurous and care free. Vernon was too but not even close to the extinct you were.
The one bad thing that came from your exotic nature and his calm lifestyle is that you were way - way - more experienced than he was sexually. It wasn’t very noticeable when you guys did things but you always felt cautious of how far you would go or push, since you didn’t know how much he was comfortable with. Most of the time you just weighed out the situation at hand and that worked out for you most of time.
Since you and Vernon started dating about 3 months ago, you guys are always hanging out and where there is Vernon, there is all the other members. You learned to just get over and deal with it because there wasn’t much you could do - boys would be boys.
The other members of the Hip Hop Unit were basically the opposite of your boyfriend. They were mysterious, adventurous and definitely more lively and that showed whenever you would hang out with them and their girlfriends. But in the end, you never minded because you werent with Vernon for the sex anyway, you just love him for him.
One particular day, you and Vernon were watching TV, cuddling on the couch, when Wonwoo and Mingyu came in claiming that they had finished their portion of the song and asked if they could join your movie day. You guys didnt mind, you were basically in a relationship with all of them, based on how much you see them but minus the sexual desire.
It was small talk most of the time until a heated scene came on the screen and tension started to rise. Randomly, Wonwoo and Mingyu burst out laughing at you and Vernon the couch. You didn’t even notice what was happening before you looked over to see Vernon bright red and blushing up a storm.
“You guy’s are so childish.” You said laughing and cuddling back into Vernon, stroking his arm to help him calm down soothingly. This just made the other boys bust out in even more laughter, resulting in you rolling your eyes and ignoring them.
“Vernon started it, he is acting like he has never seen a vagina before.” Wonwoo said from the chair, bundled up in a bunch of blankets. You wondered why he was not getting hot.
“He probably hasn’t.” Mingyu added calmly. Vernon gasped and sat up, giving Mingyu a death stare.
“What makes you think that?” Vernon questions, hands leaving the place on your thigh in which he was rubbing softly.
“You’re vanilla.” Mingyu said, returning his attention back to the TV.
You couldn’t necessarily disagree with Mingyu. You and Vernon had been dating for 5 months and the farthest you guys had gone was a lot of making out and a few blow jobs here and there. Vernon knew it was not a problem by you and always claimed he did not do those things so you could feel comfortable but deep down you knew that he was probably scared. But that was okay with you, you could settle for make out sessions any day.
“I am not.” Vernon protests from the seat next to you, sounding angry and hurt in multiple ways. You wanted to hug him and give him feathery kisses everywhere but that would just support the idea that Mingyu was proposing, so you just opted to take Vernon’s hand in yours quickly and squeezing it for reassurance.
“Yes you are. Have you even gotten head before, Vernon?” Wonwoo says again. You cringe at the term, because you never like to think of it as just ‘head’. It felt like more and you wanted to protest but stayed quiet.
“Yeah, I actually have. Multiple times.” Vernon says proudly. You gasp at his words, not expecting him to share that kind of information with his friends, especially when you were in the room. Now it was your time to blush. Vernon noticed and shot you an apologetic look and tightened his grip on your hand underneath the blanket.
“Have you ever given head?” Wonwoo asked. You were worried that Vernon would get confused, not understanding that guys can give girls head, not just the other way around. Thankfully he understood and stared at you for a second, studying your reaction to the question. There was a moment of silence between you all, filled with you studying Vernon’s face and trying to read his thoughts about the concept of him - possibly - eating you out.
“I’ll take that as a no,” Wonwoo laughed. “Vanillla at its finest.”
Vernon told Mingyu and Wonwoo to leave after the comments and after 5 minutes of Mingyu claiming he didn’t do anything, they agreed to leave you and Vernon in peace.
There was a kind of tension in the air - sexual tension - and you did not like it all. You and Vernon knew what you guys liked and took the time to learn each other, you did not want to make it seem like he had to do this for his pride or manhood, because then it wasn’t real to you.
After they left, Vernon led you to his room upstairs, It was a quiet walk and once you got into the room you sat down on the edge of the bed, legs crossed, with Vernon pacing back and forth in front of you, thinking.
“Do you think I am vanilla?” He stops abruptly, catching you off guard, removing your finger nails from your mouth and taking a second to think about your response, knowing one false word could hurt him and that was the last thing you wanted to do.
“Not necessarily. I think your cautious.” You smile, trying to lighten up the mood. It doesn’t work because Vernon just looks at you with a disappointed look on his face. He joins you on the bed, hand resting on your thigh.
“Can I eat you out?” He says confidently, making eye contact with you and reading your face for clues. Your eyes widen and a blush creeps up your cheeks at the question. It was not even the content of the sentence, it was just the fact that it came out of Vernon’s mouth.
It was unexpected but surprisingly sexy.
“Please.” You reply, going to straddle Vernon right away. He laughs at your eager attitude and you don’t give him much time, attaching your lips instantly.
Your tongues move in unison and mouths in sync. Your hands find their way tangled into Vernon’s hair, pulling and resulting in him moaning of pleasure. His hand meeting the small of your back but soon roaming lower, cupping your butt and grinding his hands roughly but sweetly.
The kiss is hot and rough, rather than the usual soft and passionate that you and Vernon usually do. Its different but you like it. The kiss builds up the anticipation of what is about to happen, which still is not registering completely in your mind on top of the intense kiss.
You grind down onto him, feeling his boner against your middle. The friction makes him groan into the kiss and tighten his hold on your butt, making you squeal and laugh slightly into Vernon’s mouth. You want nothing but to take care of his situation and he notices this, leaning back from your lips and smiling.
“I am going to please you today baby, not the other way around.” His pet name for you makes your stomach turn and you smile, interconnecting your lips.
He picks you up gently and you wrap your legs around his waist for security. He spins you around and releases you onto the bed, laying you down. He removes his shirt quickly, making you admire his long torso and wide shoulders. He threw his shirt somewhere in the room and leaned down to crawl between your legs and place himself above you, hands on either side of your head and knees on the outsides of your legs.
“I am gonna make you feel so good, baby.” He mumbles into your skin while pressing small kisses all over your neck and chest, removing your shirt, leaving you in your bra. You whimpered at his hot tongue hitting your cool skin and grab onto his arms to the sides of you, gripping for comfort.
He then reaches behind your back to unclasp your bra, skillfully. You giggle at his movements and lean up, allowing him to throw the bra across the room somewhere, then bringing his full attention back to you.
Vernon immediately attacks your chest, placing kisses everywhere and admiring every part of your boobs. He places his hand on one and attaches his mouth to the other, kneading and sucking anything he could get his hands on.
“Just like that.” You pant, back arching at the pleasure and hands flying back up to Vernon’s hair by instinct. He then leads down your body and starts placing kisses on your thighs, belly button and anywhere besides where you wanted him - needed him - in that moment.
“Please, don’t tease.” You say helplessly, wet from the thoughts of Vernon’s warm mouth and tongue surrounding your core and not being able to wait any longer.
“What do you want?” Vernon asks, continuing his teasing actions but sucking harder around your thighs, leaving definite bruises for you to admire the next day.
“I want your tongue.” You say breathlessly and in the most desperate tone. You can feel him smirk onto your skin, signaling that was exactly the answer he wanted.
“Where?” He asks, stopping his actions and looking up at you momentarily. “I cant give you what you want if you don’t tell me princess.” He says, untying the knot in the string of your shorts slowly.
“I want you to fuck me with your tongue, Vernon.” The words roll out of your mouth so smoothly, you hear Vernon groan at the dirtiness of the words.
“Good princess.” He says, finally pulling down your shorts, along with your underwear. The air hitting you suddenly makes you shiver. Vernon spreads your legs wide, giving himself better access to what he wants. He places your legs on his shoulders and bends down so he is face to face to your core.
“Already so wet for me baby.” Vernon says, placing his fingers on your under lips and smoothly roaming.
“Yea- Fuck.” You stop mid sentence, yelling at the sudden warm feeling of Vernon’s tongue licking up your middle. He does this multiple times, making you tighten your grip in his hair and pull mercilessly. His licks become fast and urgent quickly, making you scream his name wildly.
“You taste so good princess.” Vernon says against your core, pointing his tongue and fucking you slowly and sensually with it, making your legs shake and thighs quiver.
Vernon tightens his hands around your thighs, holding them down knowing you cant control yourself during times of vulnerability like these. He removes one hand from your leg and brings it down to your center, entering a finger into you followed by his tongue flicking against your sensitive spot.
“Shit baby. Don’t stop.” You cry out, removing your hands from Vernon;s hair, placing them on the sheets next to you and gripping the shits so hard your knuckles turn white,
He continues to fuck you with his fingers assisted by his tongue doing the rest of the work. The feeling is so overwhelming and powerful you start to see stars and your eyes roll to the back of your head, mouth agape and body heating up.
You knew Vernon was enjoying seeing you so ruined and responsive - all because of him.
“I’m so close Vernon.” You manage to squeak out between bursts of pleasure. He recognizes this and speeds up his movements, widening his tongue on your core and pumping his fingers at a vigorous pace.
“Gonna come for me princess?” He says, removing his mouth from your lips, only leaving his fingers to pleasure you. You guys lock eyes and he reaches to connect his lips to yours, placing his free hand on your cheek and devouring your mouth in a rough but lust filled kiss.
“Show me how good I made you feel princess.” Vernon whispered with a raspy voice into your ear, followed by a biting of your earlobe. You could feel his hot breathe hitting your cheek and hear his low grunts.
You moaned at his words and felt a wave of pleasure go through your body. You gripped Vernon’s arms and with a yell of his name, came undone right in his arms. He soothingly rubbed your stomach, allowing you to come down from your high. Once you had come back to him, he fell next to you and wrapped the covers around you both, bodies fit together and heart beats in rhythm.
“Why have I never met that Vernon before?” You smiled, turning around to face him and wrap your arm around his side. He smiled back at you, pushing a piece of hair out of your face and placing a kiss on your lips softly, looking into your eyes, admiring your ever feature.
“He was scared to come out.” He laughed, pulling you closer and placing his head in the crease of your neck.
“Well I love both of them.” You said laughing and pulling the covers over your face, signaling you were tired and you wanted to sleep.
“Goodnight princess.” He cooed softly into your neck and with that you both fell asleep in each others arms, a little less vanilla and a little more in love.
Heeyyy birb lord do you know (or do you do?) any art tutorial stuff for people trying to get back into drawing? Idk where or how to look for anything.
I know you already found some stuff but I figured I’d throw in a little advice anyway! This is gonna be a bit long and include some links and technical + motivational help. Most of this is what I’ve learned at school + uni and from my years as a hobby artist.
First of all, if you’re starting up again after a long time of no drawing (or even if you’re a beginner) I’d recommend:
Starting completely from scratch. It’s tedious, but it’s always good to start with the basics, sort of “relearn” drawing.
Drawing from life! Real life is THE BEST foundation to build on, before you focus on having a personal style. Try croquis drawing if you can, if you can’t you should check out some of the sites I’ll link to at the bottom of this post.
Studying proportions and anatomy!! A lot of the drawing process is memorizing proportions - it’s always completely necessary if you want to develop your own style. Simple help sheets can be useful! You don’t have to master anatomy to start experimenting tho, but there’s never an excuse to not study it. You have to know how the body connects before you can start drawing it!
Always focusing on what’s underneath. A problem with a lot of new artists is that they want to make something that just looks good on the outside. Try drawing “skeletons” and helplines for faces (links below). Tip: Try dividing the body into several different shapes. What I usually do is that I draw a circle from the head, line for the spine and plot in the hips and shoulders as shapes before I start on the actual figure.
Not undermining the importance of composition. As with proportions, everything in an art piece has its place. It’s all about individual pieces working together to form the whole. You can detail as much as you want, but the way you’ve composed the picture has a HUGE impact on how good it will look. Tip: study your pictures from afar - if it doesn’t look good, it won’t look good up close. Another tip: Use composition to create a focus point - this is what will catch the viewer’s eye and guide it through the rest of the painting. (here are some examples of how I create focus points, but it’s not very in-depth). Focus points can be created with colour, light and placement, often by using harmonic composition principles (links below)
Studying colour theory. Colour can be used in so many ways, and knowing very basic colour theory can really help you find colours that fit! Tip: Don’t use pure black and white for natural shading/highlighting, it often looks dull, shadows have colour too, and often in a contrast to the colour of the light source (see links).
Use references! There’s no shame in using references, they can be excellent to remember proportions and shading. Just remember to credit the photographers/models (unless it’s you) and don’t trace them and post your tracings!!
When it comes to getting back into drawing, here’s some advice that’s worth thinking through:
Try to understand why you quit in the first place. If it was anything but just not having the time, it’d be good to try going in a different direction than you did the first time, figure out why you quit.
Try finding a reason to keep going. I create art because it makes me feel accomplished and productive, it’s relaxing to work on (most of the time), and it’s a way I can make people happy. Make sure the positive effects outweight the negative. Try surrounding yourself with things that inspire you, you could for example keep folders of inspiring works (or watch speedpaints) that just makes you eager to start creating.
Challenge yourself! An artist should ALWAYS strive to improve. It’s a journey with no destination. You can never be perfect, which is both terrifying and comforting. Never shut out legit advice - the feeling of accomplishment will only last if you work for it.
Experiment! A way to stop feeling stuck or like you want to quit is to try out different and new techniques (i.e. different brushes, watercolour, charcoal, etc.) You might find a medium you really enjoy but wouldn’t consider working with before.
Keep in mind that drawing should be enjoyable in one way or another. It can be stressful and make you feel bad if things don’t turn out the way you want to. This is normal, but if it becomes a source of crippling anxiety instead of an enjoyable activity that makes you feel accomplished, it’s probably not a hobby you should pursue.
Be aware that things take time. Working on a craft will always be tedious - don’t lose hope if you feel like you’re not good enough, you can only get better with time and practice.
Here are some resources I’ve bookmarked and looked up (it’s not a lot but can be good to get started):
REFERENCES AND GESTURE DRAWING:
ManStock- Reference pics of male models (contains nudity)
dAPoses - Reference pics of all models (contains nudity in some folders)
Posemaniacs - A LOT of 3D models of people you can rotate (sadly doesn’t take things like bodyfat into account, but is great for basic poses and proportions)
(video) Understanding Colour- 23 min video covering everything about colour. Looking up related tutorials on youtube can be helpful, just make sure the sources are credible (I’d prefer youtube tutorials to deviantart tutorials)
(image) Composition tutorial- A very good tutorial about the different techniques used to guide the viewer’s eye in a painting.
I wish I had more links but I hope it helped at least a little! DeviantART has a lot of tutorials, but sadly a lot of them are bad or too stylized for beginners so it can be difficult to find useful ones. Youtube however has a lot of stuff made by professionals, and I’ve personally learned a lot from videos when I was a beginner. I hope most of the ones I’ve found can help you, and don’t be afraid to ask if there’s something specific you need help with.
I was wondering if you have any tips for painting digital drawings? Like without any lineart, more bold-ish and simplistic or detailed like Nikki does...? Any of that. I've been trying but it just.. it just doesn't go good at all :/ and I know its not what you usually do but you've done it a few times and I loved it and I just need a push in the right direction... Please?
Whenever I attempt a painting like that, I draw it out first, like with normal lineart and everything, and then make a new layer, and start painting it, always looking at the reference - you can even eyedrop the colours directly from the reference photo! And then I always paint everything on the same layer, which makes it easy to blend colours etc. Try out different brushes too!
If you want to check out some of my speed painting videos, maybe it’ll make my process clearer! This one is pretty old but still accurate to how I do them today:
