it's really dumb but it works for me

so i was rewatching s 1 ep 5 (lol) idk if this has ever been brought up but i noticed when after the team defeats sendak pidge helps shiro and keith helps lance. (seen in the picture below)

 now, yeah thats a given but i started thinking about it more and this scene is just so out of wack that it honestly just adds another point for klance. now youre probably thinking “well i mean thats just a given and of course it adds points for klance.” but hear me out 

as a given, we know that keith and shiro have a very strong relationship and keith is really attached to shiro. keith always has shiros back and is his right hand man. so in a situation like this it should be a given that keith would be at shiros side in a heartbeat. but…. that isnt the case here which doesnt make one ounce of sense. yeah, even though pidge was at shiros side and wanted to help her fellow paladin, pidge knows how much shiro means to keith, so wouldnt she give them space and help her garrison bud instead? but she doesnt for some odd reason. 

though, the most oddest part of this whole scene though is how keith reacts. he doesnt seem to worry about shiro too much, which isnt a bad or good thing, its just weird that keith wouldnt even go to shiros side or at least check on him. keith couldve easily said to pidge “ill check on shiro, you make sure lance is okay.” but he didnt. he was totally fine going to lance even though he always seems irritated with lance. 

then this happens:

keith literally starts holding his hand. now look at these pictures of shiro and pidge and keith and lance from the same screencap:

with shiro and pidge it seems like a normal teammate helping out another one, but keith and lance on the other side…. its a little different. i know it shouldnt be a big deal but honestly its the little things that make a big difference. especially knowing that keith and lance always bicker with each other.

i think the importance of this scene is the turning point of keith and lances relationship. in the very beginning of vld, their relationship was a more shaky, but after this scene, this moment, everything changed. keith started getting jealous over lance, their weird flirting thing that they have really took off, we got to see them work more with each other, and actually being a really good team with a strong bond.

in conclusion: this scene is really goddamn gay (well it is but) this scene is so damn important and is what started everything. 

anonymous asked:

so I've been having a really hard time with heads and faces recently, especially the head shapes and eyes. Ive been trying to change it up a bit but I just can't get it how I like it and I was wondering if you had any piece of advice? Idk if its a style thing or what but its starting to really frustrate me (for some dumb reason ;u;) Thanks in advance!!

there’s such a good exercise for that, actually! It works especially well with differing the head shapes, but can work for eyes as well! You take your hand a draw a random shape. Then filling it with features. Say, you draw a potatoe-shaped object. It doesn’t have to be precise of anything, since it’s just your carcass. 

then, whatever comes to your mind about that shape. You can change it slightly if you want to, or you can leave it the way it is and just draw features (and extra volume to the head if necessary)

here’s just a few examples i could come up with 

they are fast so don’t look for too anatomically correct stuff, but you get the idea! Draw a lot of shapes and fill them in.. SOmetimes you should draw many to figure out what fits your character best.

I had the file with quite many shapes somewhere but I’m not sure if it’s on the laptop or pc so..without that. But generally, try it out! It’s not only fun, but can help you decide on the features and differ the shapes. You can do the same thing for eyes as well;)

Derek doesn’t admit that everything about Stiles doesn’t just makes him weak in the knees, but melts all of his bones, and makes his heart lurch, and his head spin; doesn’t admit that Stiles makes him feel a lot of things he was sure he’d not feel again for a long, long time.

With the news that an Alpha wants Beacon Hills for their own, Derek and Stiles are forced to attend a couples retreat at a ski resort to learn their enemy’s identity. However, the threat is the least of Derek’s problems when he’s expected to fake a relationship, share a bed and suffer through candlelit dinners with the man he’s secretly been in love with for the past four years.

“So, are you dating someone new? Someone who doesn’t mind that you’re frigid?” Kate cocks her head to the side, smiling as though she just asked him about where he bought his shoes.

His entire body sighs in defeat as his shoulders grow square. Just as he opens his mouth, someone comes up to stand beside him, snaking an arm around his shoulders. When he glances to his side, expecting to see Isaac, his brain seems to malfunction. Because it isn’t Isaac. It’s Stiles Stilinski, the lacrosse talent of the year, a senior who Derek has seen multiple times from far away, but never ever talked to.

In which Derek is a nerd jock, and Stiles is a frat guy, and Derek falls for him even though he knows he shouldn’t.

“You don’t even wear a hat.“

“I’ll buy a hat for the occasion,” Stiles says. “A white one with a veil.”

(Stiles doesn’t eat a hat, but that’s just because he’s too busy with his new husband, his five children, his new husband’s ex, and a deadly feud with the neighboring ranch)

It doesn’t matter how Scott asks, Stiles always says he’s fine.

Scott’s not sure who’s supposed to believe it, or if Stiles just says it because it’s what he thinks he’s supposed to say. They do this now. They break and bleed and fall to bits, but so long as they say they’re okay then none of it’s really happening. It’s a nice idea. Just stick your fingers in your ears and hum really loud.

The problem is that it’s not working, and Scott’s terrible at pretending it is.

When Stiles finally managed to contort himself the right way without causing injury, he stared at the words on his inner thigh. And then he stared some more, long enough for the water to grow cold around him, wondering if this was part of the dream. Finally he decided that it had to be real only because his subconscious was not creative enough to come up with this.

There, in freckle-brown letters stark against pale skin, was the name Jackson Whittemore.

“Please?”

“No. You weigh almost as much as I do. And you ate a pound of chicken at lunch.”

“Well, yeah, but I pooped like an hour ago, so.”

“You’re disgusting.”

“Don’t play, you love me.”

I do, Derek thinks, relatively horrified. I really do.

Just got out of Justice League

I honestly dont feel comfortable talking too much shit about this movie because it was so hopeful and friendly. They really tried to please niggas like me who’ve been slow roasting that dumb dark shit all this time. 

I fuck with the team heavy. I wish there was more of them ALL working together at once. Its just like The Avengers as far as team dynamics and banter and shit. Seeing them all standing together in costume for the first time made me want a Marvel/DC crossover ASAP. 

As far as action goes, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and  100000000% Superman had the coolest moments. Flash was ight. A lot of his jokes and dialogue felt wild forced but I appreciate what they were going for. Batman was Batman but with Whedon dialogue. Cyborg was ok but I still cant imagine a whole ass movie about this dude and they spend zero time on his human side for reasons that lead into the negatives

As far as bad goes, let’s just rip this band-aid off right quick

-This hoe was chopped to shit just like Suicide Squad. Ultimate cut on the way

-I can 100% tell which scenes were directed by who. The reshoots were very obvious

-Superman’s lip 

-Steppenwolf looked like a big ass PS2 character and the Parademons were annoying and loud as shit

-Superman’s lip

-Some plot points didnt make a lick of sense

-70% of the CGI looked like ass like

-Superman’s lip

-Whedon reused a fuck ton of his old material from both Avengers movies that can get a lil distracting like

-CLARK KENT’S DISGUSTING ASS CGI CLEFT LIP. LIKE DAWG!!!! THEY HAD THIS NIGGA LOOKIN LIKE JOAQUIN PHEONIX. ITS LITERALLY THE FIRST THING YOU SEE WHEN THE MOVIE STARTS. I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS IS A THING. $25 MILLION. LIKE NIGGA WUT?!?!?!?

Anyway yeah

Superman’s resurrection makes up most of this score

Hi! Just thought that you should know scottishboop on twitter is trying to pass of your sniper McCree art as her own.

Thanks for letting me know! I dropped a comment on the post in question – although, it looks like it ain’t just my work they’re trying to claim as theirs (which is incredibly dumb of them really, considering the amount of difference between the art styles of each piece). If anyone recognizes any other artists’ works that have been reposted there, it might be an idea to let them know as well. Hopefully it’ll all get resolved soon in any case– shame that the first time I use twitter in months is for such a thing tho, lol

EDIT: not five minutes later, they’ve blocked me! lmao

anonymous asked:

Holy FRICK, it's youuu. I've seen your art all over and never realized it was one person who created all these amazing pieces? How did I not? They're all so good? Anyways I'm here now. Subscribed and all!

Excuse my reaction but ‘all over’ sounds like … everywhere but tumblr? D:  (Which, if that’s the case, makes me really unhappy because my art should only be on this site.. with some exceptions)

But yeah… Well .. I am glad that you found me? o_o .. and yes all these shitty little jokes are mine. They’re bad :’D .. and the art is just sketches but yes. That’s all mine. When you see a bad joke with seijou 3rd years involved, it’s probably mine because that’s been all I did lately :’D… I’m very sorry for it, I just can’t stop. But I am very happy that you seem to enjoy all my dumb art.
And I guess I need to get a bit more continuity in my style. I realize some pieces look very different in style from others. I’m still not where I actually want to be so, yeah. :D
Thank you <3

hey, this is probably a dumb question, but like how do you write with mental illness? cause i have pretty bad ADD and i want to be a writer, but it's so hard to focus on writing that it takes me weeks just to do a thousand words. i've read some of your work and really admired it. you don't have to answer this if you don't want to.

potentially weird and idiosyncratic answer but: if your mental illness is blocking you from writing, don’t write. focus on your mental health until you are capable of writing. 

i wrote the first draft of my novel at the end of my junior year of university. shortly thereafter, i experienced two major traumatic events and i had to throw myself into, a) seeking therapy for the ensuing very severe depresión, and b) trying to graduate on time so i wouldn’t have to pay my way through another year of school. i came back to the book when i was good and goddamn ready to do so, after extensive mental health treatment and a lot of time and rest, and the book was better for it. 

don’t force yourself to write if you can’t write. mental health first, always.

adayinwriterslife  asked:

I agree with your opinions about Descendants and Ever After High. EAH isn't perfect but it's waaay better than DD. Disney is the victim of its own inactivity. The fans were creating a highschool/kids in highschool AU verse long before they began working on the D concept so they could make their own official franchise yet Mattel beat them at their own game. It makes me angry that D are so popular when there is so much wrong with the execution of the story/setting etc.

The things that really got to me about Descendants were the horrible world creation, the fact that they butchered my favourite canon characters, and the fact that they seem to feel the need to dumb everything down to kids.

In EAH, Raven’s decision to defy her destiny and go good has consequences. People, even people who are supposed to be good, shun her for it out of fear. Hell, even Raven questions if she made the right decision, not just for herself but because of the way it could affect other people.

Not only that, but the way Disney handled the villains and their kids was just insulting.

Raven’s mother, evil as she is, opposite as the two are, loves Raven. She doesn’t just want her daughter to be evil just because she wants a miniature version of herself, she wants it because she thinks it will keep her daughter safe, because it is the only way she knows of to bond with her daughter, because she genuinely believes that she can stop Raven from being hurt by forcing the rest of the world to love her.

And Raven knows this. She stands up to her mom, she outwardly disagrees and defies her, and for good reason, but she knows that her mother loves her and doesn’t know how to handle that.

In Descendents apparently the villains literally don’t love their children. It is outright stated that they literally didn’t love their children because… Our audience is children and children are too stupid to understand nuance? 

(This is ignoring the fact that I highly doubt that the Disney villains wouldn’t love their kids. Hell, the kids share half of their DNA, if anything they would be doing their best to keep that half safe. Maleficent especially as the fae were very, very, protective of their children.)

DAY 3459

Jalsa, Mumbai                Sept 16/17,  2017               Sat/Sun 12:29 AM 






And just when the Blog begins to sound like an account on Twitter, with its questionable and increasingly difficult strength, of those valiant 140 words, we, or rather I begin to wonder if there lies a fault in the reliability of the writer, or is it just another day of excessive anxiety and slither motivated lethargy ..

O ! and ‘slither’ immediately and quite un wantonly, coerces me to mention the ‘slither’ that was quite by accident discovered in one of the plant pots lying near the gates of Prateeksha, by a passer by .. the reptile lay curled up and had apparently crossed the road from the other side and slid into a safe haven .. 

On coming to know it, the department that looks after and is in charge of such wild life occurrences was informed, and they, very efficiently, were able to catch the snake immediately and have now deported him or her to the forested region of the  National Park in the Andheri - Goregaon region. They informed me that it was a non venomous water snake !

So ..  not dwelling too much on the above we draw our attention to the topic under surveillance - content !


Many moons ago .. O ! the mention of moon has diverted my attention again .. there were proposals made for my participation in a film today that shall be dealing with the ‘moon’ ; I am putting myself under a perceived intent of wishing to read some kind of a synopsis of the film story before I take any decisions ..

So yes many moons ago ..  the value of content was most elaborately discussed with me, and its importance in modern day life and living was inserted into my, at that time, rather putrid and dumb waitered brain - not to say that it still isn’t - and that is another chapter - to work and comply with the philosophy of its meaning in modern day communication businesses ..

CONTENT .. that really is the name of the game in modern times .. what you say see, observe, wear, not wear, speak write in any form, is being recorded for present and for posterity by utensils of unimaginable dexterity and science ..

We are, as a world race, going to be, in the thousands of years to come, the most documented species in the entire Universe, provided the extra terrestrials do not suddenly breathe down our throats, as can be intensely visualised in almost every second Hollywood film and video game ..

The channels of information and entertainment, shall ever be in need of content to be able to fill that ogre of a monster, the TV, to keep it alive and kicking .. or the mobile in your hand to have all in it .. at some stage all that converses in the air waves shall form material for these institutions - the institutions that have made it their mission to either control the skies, or the earth ..

Mr Murdoch wishes the skies .. and Mr Turner the earth .. and long may their missions exist and prosper  …


THE book of the year .. PINK the inside story, opens its pages to me tonight through a delivery service, and I am delighted to run through the warm freshly printed pages, of this new book - books just printed out, do have that nostalgic element of smell and taste and feel .. I have often wondered why .. but there it is and without any debate .. the new book that you buy, that new book that you open when you change classes in school .. all .. have the effect that is simply so intensely normal yet filled with the excitement of a new born baby !!

Those new books - their covers in brown or newspaper left overs, neatly cut and folded to prevent the book from any exterior damage, the pencilling or inking your name on that front first page and ages down the line when time and journeys have been passed, to open them to fill your heart with that first feel .. !


And then we have with us other prominent writers, who gift their efforts in vivid detail and depth .. and hope that we can give them some attention .. I generally do .. like I do for this .. a book by Amish ‘Immortal India’  .. a most well written and instantly readable vocabulary .. a gentle sail through the deep waters of the Country, reenacting journeys taken thousands of years back .. tracing the history and the authenticity of various informations that have formed and paved our way of thinking, behaving and just being who we are, in this part of the hemisphere ..


A great many beliefs and historic finalities have been talked of and given either credence of just another superficial smirk of self egoistic praise, most such experiences have not necessarily or forced you to accept arguments most vividly laid out before you in a style that comforts your reading pleasure ; I must admit with due respect of course, that most readings do not always do or have that effect ..

For me personally, reading is slim, but when it does converge upon me with some attitude and credence, I do find myself drifting off into the nether world  ..




and these are not reading material .. they are the love and ingenuity of the Ef, who are very close to cracking the whip announcing the arrival of another Picasso, or Van Gough .. 


Sleep well dear all .. I wish to do the same .. its been a few exasperating hours with the cold and cough .. but my system bears me well and vice versa  ..


Good night then ..

31) things you said while I cried in your arms

Oh god. 

Most times, Yuri could barely keep himself together without biting someone’s head off or embarrassingly soaking the fronts of all of Otabek’s t-shirts in snot and tears. 

There needs to be handbook on Dealing with Emotions or some shit because who on Earth thought that a hot mess like him was qualified on any scale to help anyone? For months now, Yuri had been relying on Otabek’s calm words over Skype, the weight of his arms draped around Yuri’s trembling figure as he sobbed into his shoulder, to get over himself.

Otabek refuses to look at him. “It’s nothing,” he says, but it’s clearly something; the tone of his voice is off, and even in the low light of the hotel room Yuri can see him shaking. 

“Bullshit,” Yuri says sharply, and plops down on the mattress beside him. “Beka…” He drops a hand on Otabek’s shoulder and Otabek flinches. Hard. Immediately, Yuri backs off. “Okay, okay, fine. Whatever. Just.” At a loss, he drops his hands into his lap. “I-I swear to god if I don’t stop hearing about their stupid dumb medals and their garbage dog and the gushing over Katsudon’s combinations which really aren’t that great, he can’t even land them without looking like he’s ready to fall over–”

“It’s stupid,” Otabek says, his voice rough. “It’s just another podium missed.” He sets his jaw. “There is always room for improvement. I will have to do better next time.” 

Yuri shuts his mouth. Sinks his teeth into his tongue. Exhales with a huff out his nostrils. 

“If we’re going to make this, this thing work,” Yuri says, “then you can’t be dumb and hypocritical and bottle everything up. You probably don’t even want to fucking look at me if its the medals that are making you upset because damn-” He cuts off and takes a breath. “Look, okay, I want to try.” He hovers awkwardly and sticks his arm out, looking anywhere and everywhere but at Otabek’s face. “Don’t you trust me?” 

He’s worried he’s going to be sitting there like a chump even though really, no one fucking cares if Yuri Plisetsky stays there with his arm held out for five seconds or ten hours before Otabek sighs, the stiff, straight-backed hero’s stoic posture seeping out of him like air from a balloon. Then he tilts his head sideways just a little and presses his nose into the side of Yuri’s neck, his breath uneven and damp against Yuri’s skin. 

In any other case Yuri would say something dumb and insensitive about sucking it up and doing better next time, but the moment the thought slides into his head, all he can think about is how Otabek had just held him the first time he’d broken down in disappointment and humiliation. 

“If anything, people are just glad that there’s someone else who gave the stupid Russians a run for their money,” Yuri says. “You didn’t let me beat you that easily, did you?”

“Let you,” Otabek echoes sarcastically, and huffs quietly into Yuri’s neck. “I guess not.” 

Yuri almost flinches when a droplet of water hits his skin. Almost. “Viktor’s overrated anyways, I’ve been saying it for years but no one fucking listens to me.” Gently, Yuri rests his cheek on the crown of Otabek’s head. “The ISU’s just biased towards him because he’s their favorite. It’s dumb. They’re dumb. You skated perfectly and you had the best fucking choreography out there.” 

“You’re biased,” Otabek grumbles, but that might be a small smile against Yuri’s shirt collar. He doesn’t dare move to check. 

The silence hangs for a moment. Yuri tightens his grip on Otabek’s arm. 

“Someone once told me that there’s dignity in losing,” Yuri says carefully. Otabek shifts at that, alert. “And yeah, maybe for me. But there’s, there’s fucking dignity in everything you do, and you’re talented, like Jesus fuck. This competition might not have been yours but I expect you to fucking obliterate Katsudon at Four Continents, he’s inconsistent as hell. And Viktor’s getting old and he’s gonna retire or flub and then retire and JJ doesn’t deserve to see a medal within twenty fucking meters so soon you’re just going to have to get past me, right? And I’m not going to make that easy, hell no, but you might actually beat me someday. And Kazakhstan’s gonna be really fucking proud of you then. Just like they’re proud of you now.” At the risk of sounding like a lovesick kitten, he adds, “I’m proud of you. You put up a hell of a fight, and you did it like a fucking prince while you were at it.”

“Language,” Otabek murmurs into his collar, but that’s definitely a smile. 

Yuri rolls his eyes. “Oh, fuck off-”

Give me a number and a pairing!

Vetra/Jaal: Adopting a pet.

“So, how’d you get stuck on this duty?”

Jaal glanced up. A drop of blood clung to a scratch above the eye not hidden behind his eyepiece. He was, of all the damn things, smiling. “I volunteered.”

Vetra snorted. “You didn’t.”

“It is so interesting.” He rubbed the back of his hand over his brow, smearing the blood. She seriously considered, uh, volunteering to clean it up for him.

Real smooth, Vetra.

“Is this not why you are here? To study it?”

She blinked. “Jaal. It’s a pyjak. A pest. A chocolate-devouring pest, which is absolutely the worst kind. I’m here to kill it.”

Jaal looked so aghast, she had to stop herself from laughing. “It’s a joke. I promise. Ryder’s weirdly attached to it.”

“I do not think it so weird, as you say. I study it. It studies me.”

“It throws its shit at people.”

“Perhaps its version of a … joke.”

“I like sarcasm better.”

“Yes. I have noticed this.”

Her body’s reaction to the way Jaal said the word noticed connected with her was so stupid she almost wished the dumb pyjak would lob some crap at her just to distract her. The pyjak chittered like it was laughing at her.

Death was too kind a fate, really.

This is such a stupid thing to bitch about, but its getting annoying. I do meal prepping for lunch at work, so I'll buy like a big bag of salad and some meat and eat it throughout the week. Its cheap and easy and one less thing to worry about. A coworker has taken up giving me a wicked hard time almost every day for eating the same thing. Like what does it matter? Its not her food its mine right? Like i said, a dumb thing but its really starting to bug me.

Not that you’re poor, but this is something that poor families often do. The fact that she is teasing you about something that is commonly done by struggling families means she’s poor shaming and she needs a good bout of food poisoning. It’s easy and cheap to buy stuff in bulk and eat the same thing for days on end. My mom did that when I was growing up. You don’t need a fucking four course meal every goddamn day without overlapping the same meal ideas to survive. You just need food. -Abby
