keep on touching each other's quicks

‘’Summer is the time for squabbles. In winter, we must protect one another, keep each other warm, share our strengths. … “When the snows fall and the white winds blow” - When winter comes; “The lone wolf dies but the pack survives

Quick messy sketch of our lovely Stark sisters and some random thoughts.

EDIT: some of the comments I received proved exactly what I was saying. Nice job :D. The bias is strong in some people. Had you even bothered to read any of my other posts you would have seen that I never trashed Arya…on the contrary I had shown my appreciation for the character and accepted her with the bad and the good. Do you think I would spend my time on a character I hate? I am referring to art. Do you think I would create FREE art of a character I dislike and try to portray her as good as I can (I am speaking of a solo Arya piece I previously posted). Someone said Sansa wished Arya died…well Arya wasn’t some angel either, and Sansa kind of bullied Arya (the whole horseface wasn’t very nice) who also seems a bit frustrated that Sansa got the ‘good stuff’ from their mother (hair, cheekbones, eyes etc). Do you have siblings? Kids growing up sometimes argue/fight and say mean things to each other. That doesn’t mean they mean it. How exactly do you see Arya? ‘Badass’ assassin fighter yay goddess of winter bae of doom? Well, she’s more than that just as Sansa is not beauty without brains. The people who jumped and ‘attacked’ (lol you little wolves you) seem to be the kind that worship a character and ignore its faults and instead will point every little fault of other characters. That’s what you proved in the comments. I never said I blame Arya for Lady or Micah. I was using your own logic of blaming Sansa for Ned’s execution. If one is to blame, than why the other is not? Are these situations not similar? Did any of them did what they did  to kill others on purpose? No. None of them did it to kill Ned/Micah/Lady. ‘Buuuut Sansa said/did that’/ ‘omg how dare you say a bad thing about our perfect goddess Arya’ etc. I never said anything bad, just the things that I noticed, and if you don’t like it…well I don’t fucking care. Most of the fandom is extremely biased when it comes to the Stark sisters. If pointing out the obvious means attacking a character then you have some problems. You are free to create your own art, spread the hate towards any characters  you want….because that’s how you feel. At the same time I maintain my opinion and I would like to invite you to read the books again if you think Arya and Sansa are enemies. They’re part of the same team. They learned a lot and they miss each other, Winterfell . Sansa thinks of her future children and one looks like Arya, the memory of the snowball fight scene when they play in the snow etc. It wasn’t all bad between them. Childish fights mean nothing. If I had a dollar each time someone told their sibling or parent ‘I hate you’/ ‘I wish you were dead’…I’d be rich.

Ned said it best. In winter the wolves must stick together. Another thing he noted is that Arya, like Lyanna and Brandon, has a touch of the wild wolf in her. This wilderness, according to Ned, was what put both Lyanna and Brandon into their early graves. 

 I’ve seen so much Sansa hate coming from show-only watchers (most of the time) and betting that Sansa will die this season  because  Arya is heading North and well there is not much to do for Sansa as she basically sucks according to some people. I love both Stark sisters for different reasons and IRL I share similar stuff with Arya which actually makes it easier to identify with her character. I have close to 0% in common with Sansa …and yet I still like her as a character.

 Funny enough Sansa is still blamed for a mistake she did in season 1/ book 1 while if I were to use the same logic Arya is to blame for Micah and Lady’s deaths because her actions led to that in a similar way Sansa spilling the beans to Cersei ultimately killed Ned (though that was NOT the plan, he was supposed to be sent to the Wall, but Jeoffrey did not listen to anyone and just sentenced him to death). 

Another thing is that Arya killing is constantly glamorized and  praised, while Sansa doing it makes her a monster. Saw some things being said that she could be pregnant with Ramsay’s child and that she would be a horrible person if she aborted it. There is moon tea, darlings! Sansa could have taken it constantly while being with Ramsay. There is also that wonderful fall that could have killed it…or the freezing cold and river…

Been talking to some friends and all of them said that Arya is the kind of girl they admire and her qualities make her more appealing/ attractive…which is a bit hypocritical considering that 100% of the people I’ve talked to were in relationships or married to ‘traditional women’ and not tomboys.

So lots of people think Sansa should be killed off because she is too weak and because there is place for only one Stark sister in the North XD.

But who is more inclined to hit the bucket? Someone who has learnt to keep their mouth shut and think ahead or someone who acts on impulse? Show only watchers are quick to dismiss everything that is book related, yet rely on ‘Arya’s GRRM’s wife fav character he won’t kill her’. Well…that doesn’t hold any water when the show is concerned ;) (plenty of proof in what the show did with Dorne, Jaimie’s redemption, Sansa’s rape, killing off characters that are still alive, introducing useless romances etc). If the show wants shock they would kill someone who is generally loved, not a character plenty of people deem weak. Last year I told everyone Margaery was going to die and people called me crazy XD. 

I personally think we lost too many Starks so far and those 3 that are left (Arya, Sansa, Bran) and Jon should form their pack and fight off winter. Each of them has their special skill sets. 

I was thinking of people that could actually die soon (SOME POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD):

Missandei- from my point of view she becomes a ‘spare’ the moment she reaches Westeros. Daenerys has the best of the best in her council: Tyrion. She teamed with Asha and Theon, Dorne and  Olenna. She is going to meet up with Jon who has his own advisers. Missandei’s skill set becomes pretty much useless. She is a good translator and knows many languages, but in Westeros Dany doesn’t need a translator and Missandei’s knowledge of Westeros could be very limited(I don’t know for sure how much she knows…she could know nothing as Westeros is so different from the places she lived in).

Meera- according to some spoilers she heads back home after Bran reaches Castle Black. Does this mean her mission is done? Possible. I wouldn’t put it past GOT to kill her off (not after what they did last season with so many characters being killed off). She goes home to her father (you know…that guy named Howland Reed who was with Ned at the Tower of Joy). Bran already knows that stuff that Howland knows. And according to some other spoilers Gilly and Sam will find even more evidence about Jon’s parentage. Do we really need Howland/ Meera? Does it even matter anymore that Jon’s parents are who they are? He as a bastard was named KITN. Spoilers point to a romance with Dany. Last season Dany said that she would have to marry and who in the 7 kingdoms matches her own title? Who is left besides Jon? A marriage with her would make him king consort. If she dies (and I think she will die in the last season/book…but that’s another post), he ends up as king of the 7 kingdoms. No matter what…he is in a place of power. Even if he renounces his KITN title in exchange to Dany’s help against the WW (which doesn’t make sense because if she wants to rule the kingdom she must first clean it u…but this is what the spoilers state).

Since you both have busy schedules... How do you keep in touch with sweetheart? do you text each other everyday? or there are days when you're just too busy to answer?

We text everyday. Even if I’m scrubbed in the OR all day, I make sure to send him a good morning message and some quick thoughts before I go into the case so we’ve at least said good morning or if he’s still asleep he has something to wake up to. 

Then we call each other almost every night and talk just for a couple minutes. We also will call and talk for like 5-10 minutes when we both have a second. Sometimes this means we talk while one of us is walking somewhere or washing dishes or doing something else, but it’s nice to do something to be connected in those moments. 

We also usually share the little pieces of our day. Like what we have planned for the day, what we’re going to have for dinner, or the other little things we would share if we were in the same place or having a day together. 

We’ll be permanently together in less than 2 months. :) 

charminglyantiquated’s hair tutorial!

HEY GUYS this is really quick and dirty, but basically how I draw hair that looks like stained glass (kind of surprised and definitely delighted at how many people have told me that!) is:

basic hair outlines!

then draw a few major lines inside the mass of hair - divide it into general clumps. try not to let these lines touch each other. don’t do anything inside/underneath the hair.

make your brush smaller (how much is up to you) and just draw a fuckton more lines. fill each hair clump one by one. try to keep these smaller lines all generally following the same curve of the clump they’re in! it’s okay if these lines TOUCH the side of the clump they’re in, but don’t ever have then CROSS it. you can fill the underside of the hair now too.

block color underneath the lineart

make a SOFT LIGHT layer UNDER the lines and OVER the hair color. using a clean, vibrant color (nothing greyish or brownish, or too dark; I usually use purple or blue) and that brush that is round and fades (soft round?), put in the major shadows based on the light, and next to each of the major lines dividing clumps of hair.

make the brush a bit smaller and run it along each of the smaller lines (or just some! follow your heartsong). it’s fine if it’s messy!

now it’s time for TEXTURES. just make a bunch of soft light layers between the solid hair color and the shading and play around with textures and opacity - usually 25 -75 is a good range, depending on the colors you use (I usually have a dark color, a light color, and a third color to overall tint the drawing. usually, these are watercolor texture, paper texture, and solid respectively, but seriously, play around).

if you’re so inclined, make a last layer above the line art, make it a clipping mask, and change the color of the lines to match everything else.

…and you have hair fit for a rose window! i love you all. have a good weekend. <3

The man’s breath reeks of cheap beer and old cigarette smoke clinging to rotten teeth. Tooru has seen the silhouette of a knife in his pocket before the man has even sat down on the bar stool by his side and smile at him with a lick of his fleshy tongue over thin lips. “Well, ain’t ya a pretty one,” the man slurs, grinning. Tooru tilts his head and smiles like honey. “Do you want to buy me a drink?”

Of course the man wants to. He wants even more, his filthy lips say, and Tooru is almost bored by the obvious slide of greedy eyes up and down his body. Hajime keeps throwing him quick glances from the other side of the club; there’s no worry in them, just impatience. He holds Hinata and Kageyama by their collars, they sit by his side, hands curled into fists where they don’t cling to each other’s. Hajime’s lips form silent words. ‘Hurry. They’re hungry.’

Tooru touches the man’s arm. His lips curve a bit more, he stands. “Do you want to go somewhere else?” How naive can someone be, Tooru thinks when the man’s black-dirty eyes light up with unconcealed lust, to think that he gets anything without paying a price? 

“Wait. Where are we going?” The man begins to understand when Tooru’s already led him into a room that’s covered in pure white tiles. The door slams shut behind them; voices echo through the corridor they just walked, and Tooru keeps smiling, smiling, milky-sweet teeth and a soft tongue flicking his lips. “Who are you,” is all the man can say before Tooru gently puts a finger on his mouth - and shoves him onto the floor. 

“It’s so easy to find food these days.” 

The door slams open. Three silhouettes push inside, two growling in triumph and jolting forward. Tooru steps aside. Hajime comes to stand beside him, leaning in to kiss Tooru’s cheek. “Just in time,” he says, his smile tiny around needle-sharp teeth and the red glow of his two eyes, three, four, as the hidden ones on his forehead open and the horns slide back out from his hair. 

“Don’t worry,” Tooru tells the man over his own gurgling screams. “You may survive this. If the young ones can control themselves.” He laughs, watching Hinata’s fangs dig into the man’s throat to share the best blood with Kageyama, their horns now visible again, claws scratching over the floor, and the hundreds of eyes on their skin opening to witness their meal.

Advice for keeping in touch with old friends! This year is my first year at my uni, but something that my home friends and I have figured out is facetiming/skyping during homework. It's nice just to have the presence of someone else, and if anyone needs a quick hw break, then we'll share a story! Likewise, helping each other on assignments, like proof reading essays, or asking your bio major friend about science is super nice. It sustains an atmosphere of home, despite being apart.

that’s great advice, i never would have thought of that! idk if i can concentrate on hw while talking to friends, but i’ll try it out :)

(college-related) sleepover in my inbox!

Headcanon that Yachi brings some friends along to a training match but instead of being interested in volleyball they only wanted to see Kageyama and Hinata’s teamwork in action because Yachi talked about it so much.
Before long, Karasuno has acquired a bit of a fan club that cheers especially loudly whenever Kageyama and Hinata do their quick, high five, or even so much as look at each other.

Suga (because he is smart) realizes that they are actually BL fangirls and (because he is evil) proposes that the team provides some fan service.
Cue Kagehina being urged by the other guys to hug and touch and call each others’ name a lot, just to keep the fans happy.
And it’s terribly akwkward and weird,  but other teams are intimidated by the growing masses of Karasuno’s fans. And it’s not like the rest of the guys don’t play along. Tanaka and Noya are always all over each other anyway, but once Noya even climbs Asahi like a tree and plants a big kiss right on his mouth.

But Kageyama is not like that, he can’t just do stuff like this for shits and giggles, especially not when he maybe kind of likes Hinata who always blushes so prettily but never objects to the little pecks they exchange after every successful quick (and maybe some of the unsuccessful ones, too, but that’s just fan service, not an actual pick-me-up or encouragement).
By the end of the school year, their fan club is huge. At this point, the girls are actually invested in volleyball itself but Kagehina is their one true love.
It’s the final game of the season, Karasuno’s revenge against Aobajouyai.
Oikawa teases Kageyama about his new reputation that has little to do with sports. But Kageyama doesn’t care. 

Kageyama wants to win, for the team, for the fans, for the third-years, for himself and - most of all - for Hinata.
When the two of them score the final point and everyone is going wild, Kageyama doesn’t think about the fans, the spectators, the applause.
He just grabs HInata and kisses him soundly, kisses him properly for the first time ever. Hinata, of course, just throws his arms around him and kisses back.
After that, there is no more fan servie. Mostly because Suga graduates and can’t coerce them anymore, but also because Kageyama and Hinata are now dating for real.

100 days of rosebud thorn

Alright so I’m not doing 100 days of productivity because I’m not a good photographer and my phone camera sucks, so I thought I would toss out an idea! Rosebud thorn is something my friend and I used to do every day to keep in touch with each other. Basically, your rose is a highlight of your day, bud is what you’re looking forward to, and thorn is the low of your day.

It’s quick and easy to do, and if you manage to do it every day I think it’d be a nice way to record your life!

So, for today:

1/100 days of rosebud thorn!

Rose - I finally finished rereading ootp and I cried when Sirius died and I can’t wait to go onto HBP because Harry and Ginny YAS

Bud - I start my Harvard extension course on Tuesday!

Thorn - still so bitter about working 10 hour days every day next week except Tuesday and on Friday I have to do a full day with infants, which is rough for me because I’m not very good with infants and the days go by way more slowly due to there being less structure. But oh well, it’s my job and at the end of the day I love what I do! Aaaaand money.

Random KageHina Headcanons

Day 01 (June 14) - Prompt: warm-up

- at practice Hinata always helps Kageyama stretching his back and so does Kageyama for him, every time they have fun hurting each other

- before matches against other teams, Hinata goes to the bathroom and always finds other players teasing him, Kageyama watching him behind the corner; during the warm-up Kageyama performs a quick strike with Hinata and shows his middle finger to the opponents without being seen by his comrades (someone probably managed to read his lips saying “don’t underestimate my bae” or something like that)

- Hinata is terribly envious of Kageyama, because he can’t touch the floor with his fingers, keeping the legs open without bending them; Kageyama always manages to do it and Hinata gets angry, receiving a punch every time (but secretly Kageyama finds it supercute, because it’s comfortable to cuddle such a short and little boyfriend)

- during the summer training camp arc, Hinata and Kageyama always go out early in the morning to go running … but actually they just need some time and place for some hard cuddling and making out (?) that’s why they have still so much energy for practice with the others

- before they confessed, Hinata and Kageyama used to drink from each other’s bottle without being noticed (they were insanely obsessed with indirect kisses after Tanaka-san had talked about it)

- “which strike are we going to use first” “the gyuun one” “why the fuwaa is better” “but I think today the gyuun will be easier to do” “how can you tell” “because I feel it” “but I want the fuwaa” “if you insist, we can use the baam one” “but we didn’t trained it enough lately” “it’s better than the fuwaa and maybe also than the gyuun” “no the fuwaa is the strongest I think” “yes but the baam is faster” “and the gyuun is the coolest” “no the baam is the coolest”
And nobody understands what they are arguing about before every fucking match, but everybody thinks “they’re totally already married”
