Shattered

“Shawn!” She calls out. She waits a second for him to respond but hears nothing. “Shawn!” She calls louder. 

The music on goes softer and she thinks that he’s heard her. But then nothing.

“Shawn.” She says one more time, out of patience. 

“Give me a few minutes.” He says, yelling from his studio.

“No.” She says, fed up, “I need you now.” 

She’s standing on the counter, trying to get the china down. His parents were coming over for dinner, and she wants to impress Karen. So she’s making a big meal of Pasta with a side salad and garlic bread. 

“Hold on.” He calls back. 

“Shawn.” She says, the plates she’s holding getting heavier. 

“WAIT!” He growls, startling her. He’s been distant and moody lately but he hasn’t been that aggressive. 

The plates are getting heavier, her fingers are slipping. She can’t help it, her fingers give out and she drops the stack of plates to the ground. They crash to the floor causing a huge boom and sound of shattering ceramic. She yelps as a piece bounces off the side of the counter cutting her foot. 

Shawn comes tumbling out of his studio, running towards the sound she had just made. He looks scared, eyes wide searching for her.

He wants to know what just happened, and more importantly that she’s okay.

She stand’s there, on the counter, looking at her foot that is now bleeding. 

“What the fuck?” He asks breathless.

“Thanks for the help.” She sneers at him.

“This is my fault?” He asks, confused.

“I was calling you for a fucking reason Shawn, not to just see your annoying ass face.” 

“Hey.” He says, gaze softening. A little hurt at what she just said. 

“And now all our China, fucking ruined.” She groans looking at the floor. 

He stares at her, she never curses as much as she is right now. But she has completely lost her patience with him. He is always in the fucking studio, and never is around when she needs him. He’s more at home when he’s on tour. 

“What the fuck am I going to serve our dinner on? You mom is coming for dinner, she got us the fucking China.” She wipes her face, so stressed out. 

The idea of Karen finding out that the super expensive China she had specially picked out and paid for is now a shattered mess on the floor is giving her anxiety. 

“We’ll just get some more.” He shrugs.

“She’ll know Shawn, she’ll fucking know.” She hisses at him.

“Why are you angry with me?”

“Because you’re never fucking here!” She screams at him.

“What are you talking about, I’m right here.”

“Yeah? Then why is our China a fucking shattered mess on the fucking floor? Why? Oh yeah because you were here to grab it from me when I called for you four fucking times. Or when I asked you to pick up the groceries but you ‘forgot, sorry was at the studio babe’,” She mocks him. “Making me have to leave work early so I could go get the groceries.” 

“I’m sorry.” He shrugs.

“But you’re not.” She sighs, getting even more pissed off that he doesn’t seem to care. “And then I ask you to help me make dinner because, well your mom’s coming and I wanted your help so I didn’t fuck it up myself, But it was ‘Gonna finish this song, but you got it.’ so here we are. I haven’t even started on the food, our dishes are a fucking mess on our floor and your family is gonna be here in less than twenty minutes.” 

“Y/n.” He says looking up at her, she’s still standing on the counter, foot still bleeding. 

“Can you help me down, my foot is fucking killing me.” She says, eyes fierce.

“Christ Babe, you’re bleeding.” He says finally looking down at her foot. He walks over, shoes still on, walking over the dishes on the floor. He picks her up bridal style taking her to the bathroom so she doesn’t bleed on the carpet. He starts to tend to her foot but she is still pissed.

“Don’t fucking touch me.” She hisses. 

“You’re bleeding.” He says like that fixes everything. Like is magically makes her anger go away. 

“I need you to get the fuck out of this bathroom.” She says staring up at him, he looks at her with concern in his eyes. “I need you to figure out dinner, I honestly don’t care anymore. Your mom can think I’m the biggest fuck up of a wife, that’s cool. I just need five minutes.” 

“You are not a fuck up of a wife.” He immediately says with hurt eyes.

“Well it feels like it, can you please just leave me alone.”

“No way am I leaving you alone, Babe what did you say?” 

“Shawn.” She says growing frustrated again. “We need to at least have food for your family. We don’t have time for you to sit here and try to make me feel better because that’s not gonna fucking work. If you don’t get food then at least clean up the kitchen.” 

“Y/n.” He lingers, she can tell that he’s not sure what to do. He hates when she feels bad about herself, and does whatever he can to make her feel better, but she’s telling him to leave. He just looks so lost. 

“GO Shawn!” She says pointing at the door. He takes a little bit but walks out of the bathroom. She sighs and hangs her head, really wanting to cry. 

She almost let yourself cry, she almost let a tear fall. She doesn’t cry though. She knows that if she starts crying she’ll be seen as weak and not strong enough for him. 

She tries to attempt to stop the bleeding from her foot, wrapping it with bandages. She can hear the Mendes clan walk into the house, asking about her.

She stands to go greet them but when she does she starts to feel faint. She leans against the door, taking in deep breaths, trying to get the black that’s crowding her vision to go away. 

“Y/n?” Aaliyah asks, trying to find her. She doesn’t have enough energy to call out to her. But she finds Y/n anyway. “Y/n?” She asks, more worried now. She rushes to Y/n’s side.

 “Liyah.” She choke out, her head now pounding.

“What’s wrong? Why is there blood on the floor?” 

“Liyah I don’t feel good.” She’s nauseous now. 

“Y/n?” Aaliyah asks. She can feel yourself slipping. The grip on reality starting to fade away. She starts leaning into Liyah, not being able to support herself anymore.

“Shawn!” Aaliyah calls out, as she stumbles with Y/n to the ground. She’s moving the hair out of Y/n’s face, fanning her. “SHAWN!” She screams, as Y/n closes her eyes, suddenly super tired.

“What? What’s wrong? Y/n?” He asks. He rushes to her side. “What the fuck happened?”

“I don’t know, I walked in and she was like barely standing and then told me she wasn’t feeling good. Shawn why is there blood on the floor?”

“Jesus, we need to go to the hospital. Tell dad to start my jeep.” He says barking orders. “Baby, I’m here. I’m here now.” He says to her. She can feel him start to pick her up, holding her to his chest. He’s whispering that she’s okay, but she can’t tell if its for her or for him. 

“Shawn? What’s going on? Oh my god Y/n” She can hear Karen. She clutches Shawn’s shirt, trying to stay awake. 

“I’ve got you Baby. I’ve got you.” He says, now in the backseat of a car, stroking her hair. “Y/n? Can you look at me?” He whispers. She pries her eyes open to look into his brown ones. 

“I’m tired.” She whines.

“Just keep looking at me Baby.” He says, eyes so scared and worried. 

*

When she wakes Shawn is not by her side, Karen is. She smiles when she sees that Y/n has opened her eyes.

“Hey.” She whispers looking over at Shawn, who’s asleep on another chair in the corner of the room. 

“Let him sleep.” Y/n says softly.

“He’s been up all night watching you.” 

“I’m sorry for such the scare.”

“You’re okay, we’re glad you’re okay.” 

“I don’t even really know what happened?”

“You were bleeding out.”

“Oh.” 

“Can I talk to you for a quick second?”

“Yeah.” She nods, sitting up. Karen takes her hand.

“Honey, I am not going to think you are a fuck up of a wife. I don’t care if you serve me dinner on paper plates. I don’t care if we have take out pizza. I just want you to be happy.”

“Karen.” She sighs.

“Shawn told me how stressed out you were, and you don’t need to be.” 

“Thanks.” She smiles, squeezing her hand. 

She was about to tell Karen about the small depressed state she has been in but Shawn interrupts.

“Hey, you’re up.” Shawn says sitting up. 

“I’ll give you a second.” Karen says getting up and walking out. Shawn gets up and takes the seat next to the bed. 

“How are you feeling?”

“Good, better.” She nods. “You didn’t have to tell your mom that I was stressed out.”

“I’m sorry, I just needed to get the thoughts out of my head. I’ve been sort of freaking out.”

“I’m sorry, I didn’t know this was going to happen.” 

“It’s okay.”

“It’s not, but thanks for lying.” 

“Can you talk to me about how you’re feeling?”

“I said was good.”

“Not about that, why do you think you’re a fuck up of a wife?” 

“I don’t know, you’re never home and I had just broken all of our China.”

“What do you mean I’m never home?” 

“I mean, you’re physically in the house, but you’re never with me.” 

“I’m still confused.”

“Shawn, I feel as if the music is more,”

“Don’t even finish that sentence.” He cuts her off. “You are so much more important than the music. You know that.” 

“Do I?” 

“I would hope so.”

“It hasn’t seemed like it lately.”

“Wow okay, I’m sorry. It’s me being the fuck up.” 

“Shawn.” She sighs.

“No, I’ve fucked up, majorly. But not anymore. You always come first, always. I talked to Andrew, I’m on break.”

“Shawn, don’t do that.”

“It’s already taken care of.”

“No Shawn, the album is more important than my insecure feelings.”

“No it isn’t. If your feeling insecure it’s my job to help you through it. You don’t have any reason to be insecure. And you are not a fuck up of a wife. You are the best fucking wife, I can’t picture my life without you. Don’t ever think that you are not important to me, you are the most important thing in my life.”

“I love you.” She cries holding his hand.

“I love you so much.” He says, standing to kiss her on her head. “I was so fucking scared. You were so pale, and you’re eyes were not the same. The beautiful life in your eyes, it was gone. You could barely keep your eyes open, and I was so scared I was going to lose you. You were so out of it when we got here, and I couldn’t stop the thoughts in my head. I was freaking the fuck out.” 

“I’m right here.” She says taking his face into her hands.

“And I’m so happy that you are.” 

“I’m happy that you’re here.”

“But Aaliyah is really freaked out because she was the one to find you, so can I got get her?”

“Can I just be with you for a second?” She asks as he sits down.

“Yeah Baby, I’m right here.”

“I know, I just need a few minutes.” 

“I’ve got you.” He says resting his on the bed, forehead touching hers. “I’ve always got you.”

fixaidea  asked:

Hello! Sorry to barge into your askbox like this, but do you have anything on travelling attires and accessories? Backpacks, sacks, trunks, relevant clothing, anything of the like? Thank you and have a nice day!

oh don’t apologize! i love answering asks like this (once i get around to it lol)

ok ladies first, because that’s just how i live my life:

i know there were things specifically called either carriage dresses or traveling dresses, depending. they were made of heavier, stiffer fabrics than other dresses, as things like muslin, while very pretty, would at the very least wrinkle quite a bit during prolonged carriage travel. they were also sometimes a little shorter at the hem, given how easy it is to accidentally crush a hem of normal length inside a cramped carriage. here are a few photos!

^these being a carriage dress from 1816, a pelisse made to go over a carriage dress from somewhere between 1818 and 1820, and two carriage dresses from 1830!

if your lady character has to ride on horseback for part of the way instead of a carriage for some reason, her traveling clothes would be her riding habit! (a less pretty/expensive set though, if she’s rich enough to own multiple sets), which i did a post on here

though if your character has no horse whatsoever to help her travel, and none of the associated clothes, i guess just her sturdiest walking dress would be her best bet? it wouldn’t be as durable as a carriage dress or riding habit, for sure, but it’s something. like carriage dresses, they were cut a bit higher around the ankle. just a couple pics:

^1816 and 1835

menswear!

men’s fashion varied just a little less than women’s in this regard from what i can tell? it would most definitely be similar in that sturdier fabrics would need to be used, especially for riding. i’ll be the first to admit i don’t know quite as much about this stuff :|

i don’t think there were specific men’s outfits for carriage travel????? not that i’ve seen, at least? given that trousers wouldn’t really face all the same issues in a carriage that skirts would, it makes sense for me not to have seen any specially adapted ones.

though trousers most definitely could be adapted for travel on foot!

one of the most interesting things i have seen though are overalls! they weren’t like what we call overalls today, of course – i think the bib shape only evolved somewhere in the 1830s? here’s a very short little page aptly titled “the history of overalls” if you’re curious about that. but the overalls i’m talking about were a type of trousers that came about somewhere in the 18th century in america, and gradually spread overseas, where they were a popular feature of army uniforms. they’d cover the entire leg, ankle, and top of the shoe! excellent for protecting nice breeches and stockings. i think in slightly later vernacular the word also implied a looser fit? here’s a page on british military trousers during the napoleonic wars, including an anecdote about an experiment testing the efficacy of overalls! some nice overall pics, though very much out of our era:

^that first one from 1793 (lord i’m sorry it’s so far out of our time, it’s just very difficult to find nice examples), and the next one looks like it says 1813 to 1814! here’s another military history page that talks about overalls in the napoleonic wars, since that’s the best sort of source i have the time to dig up right now

alternatively, a man could also just wear spats like this pair from the ‘30s:

another solid option for protecting a few additional inches of your leg. though that overall anecdote i linked to did mention how buttons were prone to popping off during intensive travel on foot :/

riding boots were also very important! from what i can tell, at least. i actually know nothing about horse riding. from what i can see they had higher heels? for stirrups?? i guess??? pic:

ok so luggage now!

trunks i’m pretty sure were the most important pieces of luggage. they’d be keeping items safe during travel, and were designed to be really good at it – waterproofing, tin or iron bases, etc. this also made them often pretty damn heavy. here’s a bunch of pics:

^1820s, made of brass

^these three 1830s ones, the latter two coated in leather

^some unclear time early in the century; leather

^and just for fun this really really bizarre one from 1820. why is it like that??? who knows 

if your character is in the very horrible position of having to travel without a carriage, obviously a trunk is pretty much out of the question. hugo vaguely mentioned fantine carrying some sort of traveling bag when she left cosette with the thenardiers, so? those were a thing definitely

the problem is that the vast vast vaaaaaaaaaast majority of traveling bags you can find on the internet are from after the development of passenger trains (for kind of obvious reasons), which is a bit of a problem for us. mostly because i have no idea how much/in what ways the specifics of rail travel would have changed traveling bags??? obviously it would do something (like at the very least make this super adorable bag) but again ??? i’m likely being a little too nitpicky here but whatever

my best guesses (based on slightly later traveling bags) are that the bag would be leather, with handles as opposed to straps, and a bit smaller than a modern backpack. depending on the style, it might either have one clasp or two buckles. i’m not sure about the likelihood of it being a carpetbag?? my brain associates those much more with later victorian stuff but idk if that’s a totally sound judgement, and google is not helping me much right now :/

that third page i linked to (here’s the link again) also mentions briefly military knapsacks and haversacks. it tells us that knapsacks were apparently cow or goat skin with the hair facing out, had two buckles, and was worn over both shoulders. the haversack was more simple, made of fabric and slung across one shoulder. i have no idea how any of your characters would have gotten their hands on military stuff or if you’d want to put that in your story, but otherwise you might be able to just take these items as inspiration?? idk

here are a few articles on the history of luggage, though like i said, most of it only starts once the industrial revolution is in full swing what with its railroads and steamships and all that

so that’s about all i’ve got/have time to get without making you wait too much longer. do any of my followers have anything to add?? this is heavily condensed and i’m definitely missing some info so anything helps

honestly most fiction portrayals of university fail to show how intense registering for courses can me

i am screaming internally as there’s only one spot left in a class i really want, my registration isn’t for another 20 mins and there’s another wave of students before me in five minutes

Thoughts after two days of music school

This is just me being me. I also left the country for this school so i barely understand the language, but I’m getting there. Ok!

- MUSIC EVERYWHERE WOAH

- PRACTICE ROOMS WOAH

- Super nice housemates. Also WOAH THEY’RE MUSICIANS

- My roommate? A SUPER TALENTED MUSICIAN (and he’s trying to learn English just for me because he’s awesome)

- My professors??? AMAZING

- “Intro to Improv” is like the most fun I’ve ever had

- I do know a lot of the material already but it’s awesome to learn it in a whole new language and culture

- But sometimes I have to think twice when I hear what sounds like “Big Sex” and realize my teacher was saying “major sixth”

- I’m sure I’ll get the language soon enough though

- The people who live there? AMAZING I WAS INVITED OUT LIKE FIVE TIMES ALREADY

- Composition Class is eh but I can just do that on my own

- My harmony professor mentioned Penderecki on the first day my life is complete

- I’m the only classical musician there??? That’s a bit strange

- It’s mostly jazz-based but that’s cool too I guess

- I could go on forever just letting y'all know I didn’t fall off the face of the earth. Alright I’m signing off!

I never ever do this but I was trying clothes on and feeling pretty good so here’s me in my @gc2b-apparel nude binder.
I was afraid that it would see through the shirt because its a thin material and light color but it blends super well and the seams of the binder are barely visible. Made me feel good and more confident. Thanks @gc2b-apparel for the great binder!

damn dude i'm so in love he was already on the bleachers for football practice, like usual, and i was walking past w my bff to the buses, like usual, and cause its like ninety degrees out he had his shirt off and he shouted out my name and waved to me super enthusiastically (me specifically) and i looked so damn good today too wearing my favorite outfit and i waved back and smiled and honestly i have barely stopped smiling ugh ive fallen hard i just had to tell someone

!!!! THIS IS ADORABLE WOW

anonymous asked:

"I barely have the Stamina for a sketch a day" I have never felt more proud of myself, ive been doing digital art for a year and I can get done like 10+ sketches a day if I am listening to good music omg OwO Also do you still do critiques ?? Because I did a messy human the other day and I am super proud but other people are telling me it's bad (people who don't do art) so idk i wanted to ask if you still do... ;-;

yOO you go dude! I’m envious

I’m afraid I don’t do critiques, but that sounds pretty nasty of them to say omg. Keep observing and practicing, you’ll get more confident with time. When people offer constructive criticism, take it, but when people just say ‘that’s bad’ I’d take that with a grain of salt. 

The opinions of people who don’t do art can still be useful, as they may be the main audience in which will see your work, but also they have little knowledge of the construction of a piece; composition, colour theory, stylization and exaggeration etc. so they can’t really give constructive criticism on how to improve, so it’s not very helpful most of the time otl

ok so my sister is officially the cutest human being to ever walk the earth - whenever she’s happy about something (good food, a compliment, a happy story someone tells her…) she does an unconscious little dance-wiggle with her torso. when I told her about it she was surprised, she really didn’t realize that she was doing it. it’s barely there and you probably wouldn’t notice it if you didn’t know her that well but trust me that it’s super adorable.

anyway, the point to this is - Lance totally does the happy wiggle too. he sometimes flat out dances when he’s happy, he’s absolutely the type to unconsciously show his feelings like that :P 💙

  • heteronormative viewer: bucky and steve are like brothers - bucky protected steve like a little brother and they grew up together
  • me: achilles openly kissed (amongst other things) patroclus (in the song of achilles)and protected him like a brother would and they grew up together. also after patroclus died (doing something for achilles because he loved him) achilles avenged his death and let his enemy take his life because he couldn't bare to be away from patroclus and if you can't see the parallels there then I can't help you friend

I hurt myself tonight while suuuuper drunk and I can tell that it's gonna super hurt for a week pleease write me fox!Stiles and wolf!Derek? I would totally love you forever.

[Ahh I hope you’re not hurt too badly!! I hope you feel better soon!] 

Derek knows he shouldn’t shift when he’s drunk, but the moon is just calling to him, and it feels so good. He steps out of his clothes, feeling the cool night air on his bare skin and shifts, bounding into the forest. 

The moon is high in the sky, and Derek feels light-headed and amazing. He howls lustily into the passing breeze, marveling at the feel of the dirt under his paws, and then starts chasing down this delicious scent. 

What is this scent, it’s incredible— Derek follows the trail for most of the night, feeling giddy; sometimes it gets stronger, like he knows it’s close, and then the creature darts ahead, the scent thinning. There are false leads and Derek chases it down, determined to catch it. Whatever — whoever it is, Derek just wants to pin them down, nuzzle into them and get more of this scent. 

He’s feeling ridiculously pent-up and teased when he can’t even see hide nor hair of the other creature — not a wolf, but something else, something fascinating— and then the scent suddenly gets richer. 

Derek’s found a den. 

He leaps headfirst into the foxhole, eager to find the source, except he gets stuck. 

Derek howls mournfully. He can’t move.

thewordofthedayiscosplay  asked:

Not really a ask but I just have to say I love your rose quartz sword it is so awesome I would love to know how you made it if you would mind sharing

Okay so first of all this is going to be quite a long post so buckle up

Lets start by going over the stuff that you will need for this:

1. Something to use as the foundation of the sword - Cause lets face it, foam alone isn’t going to cut it. I used a wooden pole that I bought from a hardware store. You can also completely skip this step and simply purchase a cheap toy sword to paint over instead, its cool.

2. A yoga mat - Honestly I found this is the cheapest way to buy large amounts of foam for cosplay. 

3. Your finest primers - I can’t stress how important this step is. Without priming your prop before painting what you end up with is a less finished product and find yourself wasting more of your spray paint on trying to cover up the foam. Not a cool move. I used mod podge, a white undercoat paint and gesso primer to prime my sword, all with different finishing results which I will explain below. 

4. Spray paint - Yes you can use normal acrylic paint here instead but I found that spray paint gives you a smoother, more even finish free of brush streaks. Again I used a couple different brands here and I’ll explain the differences between them. 

Some other necessities:

  • Hot glue gun
  • Fabric Scissors or a craft knife 
  • A saw or just a really good serrated knife (you’ll see what I mean)
  • Window sealant???? 
  • Leather stripping/ a nice leather belt

Now lets get started!!!

So first of all I started buy taking away some of the thickness of the wooden pole cause otherwise when I applied the foam the pole would show through underneath. Now guys I dont own a saw so I literally spent about an hour using a knife to saw off little sections of wood until I had a wooden pole that was half as thick as when I had started. I Also left a section at one end of the pole untouched where my handle would be. 

Next I cut out 2 generic sword shapes out of the foam and glued them together over the length of the sword. Now if like me you also dont own a good pair of scissors/ craft knife and end up with really uneven/ unsmooth edges which are not very blade like at all then I have a nifty little tip for you. 

>>>> Secret tip <<<< Window sealant works really well at filling in all the rough edges along the foams surface. I literally bought this stuff for a £1 at a 99p store and honestly it transformed how it looked instantly. 

Seee you can see all the window sealant applied to the outline of the sword, 100x better. 

Now that brings us on to priming!

So like I was explaining earlier You. Need. To. Prime. If you skip this step your sword will basically end up looking like exactly what it is, a painted piece of foam. This goes for any cosplay prop (armour, other weapons, whatever) the finished result will look a million times better just trust me. 

Here I used about 3 or 4 coats of matte mod podge (great for smoothing out any rough surfaces) and then sprayed it with a white spray paint. Though honestly dont used the brand I’ve got crossed out above, it takes about 5 coats just to produce any coverage and each can only has about 2 coats worth in it.

Instead I’d recommend using a better quality white spray paint or mixing some white paint/white gesso primer together with some mod podge (again the mod podge will help here to smooth out any brush stroke lines as it dries. 

Time to paint!

Once I left the undercoat to dry (you will need at least a couple hours between each coat and another 24 hours for the sword to dry fully) I applied a line of masking tape where I wanted to protect the section I would be later painting silver and then painted the rest pink. 

Now guys let me talk about canbrush spray paint for a sec. This shit is super cheap but still produces the smoothest, most chip proof finishing layer ever like I’m in love with it. In fact the end result is so good that when I went to apply some weathering later on I could barely get a blade to cut through it or the acrylic paint to grip onto its surface so thats why I decided to leave the the pink looking nice and slick and used a different brand for the grey paint which was a little more easy to work with. 

Again after allowing long enough to dry (otherwise good luck trying to remove masking tape off a wet layer of paint) I covered up the pink layer with masking tape and plastic bin liners and spray painted the remaining section of the sword with silver spray paint. This is what it looked like before I weathered the silver section ^^^^

And this is what it looked like after weathering. If you don’t know how to weather then heres a really cool tutorial for you. Like I mentioned before, instead of using canbrush here I used hycoat spray paint for the silver section which turned out for be much more easily manipulated and susceptible to weathering. 

On to the handle!!

Again I cut out different sections of foam and then hot glued this bad boy together. I didnt follow any template patterns for this I just went with trial and error and whatever I felt looked good but if you want a little more help on this part I can probably whip up some templates for you. The rose on the other hand (again made out of the same foam) I made following this tutorial.  

I then once again smoothed out some edges using the window sealant but this time primed the handle using a couple layers of white gesso primer mostly because I wanted the finishing result to be a little “messier” as this would help with making it look like real metal once I weathered it. 

Get a load of that handle. 

So lastly as a finishing touch, again to try a make it look a little more fancy I used an old leather belt I had lying around the house, cut off the end and buckle and wrapped it around the handle, adding a little hot glue in a couple places.

And thats it! Final results: me looking like a straight up badass. 

You guys can also add me on snapchat (dormantfig) where I usually post my my cosplay progress.

2016 review

2016 has been an awful year for mostly everyone due to known public events that affected people in one way or another. In my case, this year wasn’t good either and I can rescue some moments that involve family, friends and achieve some interviews. But I made this blog for talk about animated series and other stuff, so here is my balance of this year.

I began this blog with Regular Show, Adventure Time, BoJack Horseman and Ash vs Evil Dead, which I’ve been following when I made the blog, but I found many surprises like Disney’s hits Gravity Falls and Star vs the Forces of Evil. After watching both shows I came up that they were another proof that this fifth generation of animation (since 1990: 1990-1998;1998-2002;2002-2007;2007-2010;2010-2016) going into the sixth is really great. Despite that, we also knew RS and AT are going to finish: the first in January 2017, meanwhile the latter on 2018.

About the shows I’ve been already watching, every one of them had a tremendous year. Ash keeped that gore, peculiar humor Evil Dead handled through movies and the first season of Ash vs Evil Dead. The arcs, relationships with the main and new characters were well handled and also we saw that classic Evil Dead moments like Ashy Slashy handpuppet (I FUCKING WANT ONE!), or the return to the cabin in the woods. Also, Steve Austin as Ash’s father was excellent, sorry he had to die so early.

(NOTE: this one is the exception because I love Evil Dead and I follow the series like a deadite).

Adventure Time had begun their seventh season and they were doing good, but after Stakes things became better and they brought their best season since Season 4 (2011/12). Meanwhile, Regular Show left us in a mid-season where everything happened, but they had surprises for us: the closure of important arcs, the opening of the following season theme and incredible adventures on space. Both seasons 7 and 8 are the best since, also and in my opinion, its fouth one. Sadly, Mordecai, Rigby and the rest of the Park Rangers adventures are going to end in two weeks from now. January 16th 2017 is going to be a super sad day.

BoJack Horseman broadened its universe and, although we see the main character facing his demons everytime as always, we could see his sweet side in the underwater episode. But also we saw the crashing death of Sarah Lynn. If your heart didn’t broke when BoJack realized she was dead, go to the doctor and check yourself!

About the surprises

Tumblr forced (?) me (yeah @owlwright you’re responsible too) to watch Star vs the Forces of Evil due to its fan art and some caps of the long awaited Season 2. In two weeks I found a wonderful western magical girl series that, despite being too cringy the first half of its first season, had good stories which became stronger in its second season, besides bad guys point of view could be seen (something many series don’t apply). The characters have their own charm and go in crescendo up to the midseason finale, the heavy feeling puncher Bon Bon The Birthday Clown.

Gravity Falls was something I’ve been pushing for a year more or less. This year it ended with a bang with the resolution of the story, and also because the amazing Alex Hirsch didn’t want to continue the story, a respectable decision that opened him Hollywood doors by writing a script for a future movie I don’t remember which. About GF, the mysteries are the key of the series, but to me the characters make it incredible. Stanley and Mabel Pines steal the show basically, meanwhile Dipper makes a good Fox Mulder. It’s quite enjoyable and no surprise it’s one of this decade best animated series, casually alongside AT, RS, Over The Garden Wall, all shows created by Hirsch’s former partners on Flapjack (yeah, Steven Universe too, I just wanted to point the coincidence).

(I’m not done with it since I have to watch Weidmageddon, but I’ll do the proper review for this soon)

Rick and Morty is the most insane, kickass, awesome animated series this guy watched in years. Yeah, it parodies Back to the Future, but has its own style. The craziness Rick and Morty’s universe handles is very enjoyable, and it gets dark as BoJack, even darker. Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland created a successful and lovable freak circus monster. And talking about Justin, his voice acting is great, he is as insane as the characters he voices, no matter if it’s Lemongrab, Morty, Rick or Ants In The Eyes Johnson. In fact, I dare to say Rick and Morty is the crazy cousin of Gravity Falls since both share not only a despicable character (Rick/Stanley), mystery, voice actors (both Roiland and Hirsch voiced characters in both shows), they share amazing fake TV shows and TV ads! Try to watch them, it’s worthy.

This year we knew Nickelodeon confirmed the comeback of Hey Arnold. Craig Bartlett wanted to finish the story with The Jungle Movie, the story where Arnold and his friends go to find his lost parents. This TV movie animation and voice recordings are finished, it’s all matter of time to watch that ending. Speaking of comebacks, this time I felt surprised when Nick announced a Rocko movie. I’m so glad they bring my favorite wallaby, but I’m afraid they would ruin the show’s vibe. Luckily, I trust Joe Murray could give that show a modern vibe using that cool mirror named Regular Show. Sadly, we also knew Harvey Beaks wasn’t going to be renewed because the network didn’t want to, and also they mismanage HB not re-runing it or promoting properly as it’s been said. It’s a shame because, despite watching few episodes, HB is a nice series about friendship.

CN also had this mismanage thing in favour of crappy shows (yeah, I’m looking at you TTG and PPG2K16), promoting and marathoning them all the time meanwhile better shows had small time on air. That decisions made Steven Universe and Regular Show rush their seasons in no time, the first in a month and a half, the other aired half a season in five weeks. Also, Adventure Time had a super long hiatus right before the awaited finnale, whose first episode, Preboot, was shown in conventions (SDCC, NYCC and so). Fans had to wait four months to see what happened to Finn, Jake and Susan Strong.

On the brightside, Steven Universe once again amazed fans with a good season that I’m watching little by little as CN Latinamerica airs (comfort reasons mostly). Mr Greg is one of the best musicals I’ve ever seen, where Dee Dee Mango Hall showed all her singing skills as Pearl. We Bare Bears had its cuteness as ever, but to me the baby bears episodes are everything. And the future is promising if the network greenlights the amazing pilots Infinity Train and Víctor and Valentino, both episodes with lots of mystery vibe and quite entertaining that could continue the fresh wave that is on CN since 2007 more or less. Also, IT hit the superb mark of a million views on Youtube! Kudos to Owen Dennis!

And last but not least, you guys. The road was tough while I began in a new social media with this topic, but finally I met good people I enjoy sharing thing with and I enjoy the things they share. I wish you a much better 2017.

okay so a plot where muse a is a very quiet and shy high school girl with no social life who spends her time writing novels, and she’s always lugging around a big stack of paper with her latest novel draft printed on it so she can edit it in her free time. She gets assigned to work on a school project with muse b, a fairly social and popular guy who she would never talk to on her own. They meet up to work on the project, but some emergency comes up and muse a has to run out on him. A few hours later she realizes that she forgot her novel manuscript on the table, and goes back to get it. She didn’t expect muse b to still be there, but he is, and when she walks in on him he’s halfway through her novel and practically bawling over a particularly sad part. From then on he’s hooked on her writing and becomes her biggest fan, bugging muse a to let him read all her stories and later trying to talk her into getting them published because the world needs to know about this greatness. Usually muse a is scared to show anyone her writing because she doesn’t think its good and she bares a lot of her soul in it, but no one has ever appreciated her like this, so she always shows muse b her writing even though she’s super nervous he won’t like it or will think it’s weird. Of course he always loves it, and through her writing he starts to appreciate her as a person beyond her stories and maybe even fALLS FOR HER and this would be the cutest fluffiest thing I’ll barf rainbows someone do this with me

(Super Sentai Successors) "Thank goodness that's over..." Hoshi rubbed her head. "I barely remember what happened. It's like we...blacked out..." Ryuusei said.

“Oh trust me, you did” Demos laughs.

I hate how there’s a fan culture where fan writing is seen as less valuable than fan art. Hold on with me here, I’ve got some coherent thoughts on this.

1. Creators of the original work one might be a fan of have explicitly said that they don’t look at or respond to anything written for fear of being sued. Like, shit. I don’t want to sue anyone. I want creators to tell me, “Oh, wow. You took my thing and made it amazing!” Fan art gets reblogged and commented on by creators because there’s no fear of law. Fan art gets more validation and praise than fan writing.

2. Popularity of fan writing increases when there is fan art dedicated to the piece. Fan art is popular no matter if fan writing is made from it.

3. In general, fan art is reblogged and liked more often than fan writing. Art is pretty and might occupy an “aesthetic” while writing is considered to clog up a dash with too many words.

4. Fan art is easy to engage with no matter the demographics of your audience. Writing will–at the very least–limit the age demographic. If you write for an older audience, younger folk might not be into it and vise versa.

5. And unless you’re super into supporting fan writing, you’ll probably not say anything about it. Fan art gets the bare minimum of “gorgeous.”

In Fitz’s briefcase everything has its own place

I had this headcanon that Fitz is very well-organised when it comes to work and engineering, but I couldn’t recall anything from the show to support it. 

And look, it was in here the whole time!
