11 Random Facts 2.0

Rules: tell your followers 11 random facts about yourself, and tag 11 people in return! Tag backs are allowed, but you mustn’t repeat any of the facts you mentioned previously. ….. so let’s jump into it

I was tagged by the lovely @islareeveswriting whom i’ve never interacted with before but hopefully will in the future cause she seems lovely. 


1. I like speaking English more than my native language.

2. If I had one wish I would wish to understand every language and be able to speak it fluently as well. I just love languages.

3. Or maybe i’d wish I knew how to cook anything and everything and had a nice cooking show-type kitchen cause I live for those :P. UGH God bless interior design catalogs! Kitchens, offices and bedrooms are sooooooo amazing.

4. I want to live alone before I even think about marrying anyone.

5. I want to travel the world by myself before i even think about marrying anyone and then travel with them before we even think about children. And then travel with my children before they think about grandkids (lol jk about that last part, we’ll travel when we can). I just want to see the world, ok?

6. If you were to give me a plane ticket to anyplace right now I’d go to England or Australia. Maybe even Japan. No doubt about those.

7. I eat cereal for breakfast pretty much every day. I get tired of eating the same thing except for that, for some reason. Cereal has been my breakfast and maybe dinner as well for like… CENTURIES. (i’m 21 i know)

8. I love stationery so much. Anything that has to do with pens, letters, stickers, stickies, pins, all those cute desk things and little notepads and such. Sucker for those.

9. I have almost drowned twice in my life and even though they were traumatic experiences, (started seeing black and all.) I enjoy the pool a lot and never go too far at the beach. I’m just more careful now and avoid any childish games around or in water. I became concerned mom from there on and guard over my people and me-self whenever we’re in water. 

10. My brother and I look like freaking twins but we’re 5 years apart. He’s just me, taller, with short hair, and a beard, and all the good genes. (He did actually get all the good genes, that fucker >> )

11. I’ve set alarms, hung a huge calendar and placed signs everywhere in my room so that I don’t forget to drink my medicine in the mornings before breakfast as the doctor said to do. Guess who ate breakfast (cereal) and then remembered to take her medicine. Again. Today. As in… 30 mins ago. This happened to me. If I die cause of this cyst y’all know it was cause I am apparently too dumb to even focus on the signs i’ve painted all over my room.


Time to taggity-tag some folks. IDK who else to tag so i’m just going to write random things and tag whoever pops up :P how’s that sound?

I’ve seen that neopets brush art challenge going around (I wish I could link it but they seem to have changed url/deactivated) and it was missing the newer brushes, so here’s the full list from the Rainbow Pool ! 

I also added some “brushes” for the other colours that are only obtainable through other methods. Have fun!

Hypothetical Handplates scenario in which Sans realizes he can teach himself Common.

(Ugh, tumblr is making them blurry for some reason so I guess full-view if you want the not-blurry version??)

Convoluted explanation incoming. Handplates is an Undertale fancomic by @zarla-s and if you like Papyrus and Sans, go read it, is good stuff. So I guess this is an AU fancomic of an AU fancomic? I dunno, the idea wouldn’t leave my brain until I did something with it. So. Zarla did a Christmas doodle where Gaster gave the boys a box of ginger cookies that had the word COOKIES on the side in big letters, and because my job gives me way too much time to think about random stuff, I realized something.

In Handplates, Gaster taught the bros to read and write Wingdings but deliberately did not teach them monster Common (ie: English) so they can’t read his nametag or anything. Thing is, Wingdings is a 1:1 substitution cipher for English. Every Wingdings symbol exactly equals an English letter; it’s not a different language, just a different set of pictures. As somebody who has taught herself a fair number of substitution ciphers, there are a few things you look for when you’re trying to translate a code and you don’t have a key in front of you. Most notably, single-letter words (in English they will usually be A or I) or double letters next to each other. Like the OO in “COOKIES”.

Sans is smart. Gaster has fed them junk food before and odds are good Sans knows how to spell “COOKIES”. The word is on the box in huge letters and Gaster just said it out loud, so it is fresh in Sans’ mind. That double-O is a huge tip-off. He would put it together that the word on the front of the box matches what’s inside. Once you figure out a few of the letters, it becomes steadily easier to decode the rest.

I feel like Gaster exposes the boys to enough Common (the nametag, food wrappers, computer monitors, the books Sans sits on) that Sans could pick it up with a proper starting point. Papyrus probably not, because he had a hard enough time with Wingdings, but Sans is eager for any opportunity to undermine Gaster and I’m sure he’d jump at the chance. In this comic he elects not to tell Papyrus, though. He doesn’t know Gaster has cameras in the cell (or even what a camera is) but he’s figured out that Gaster can spy on them somehow, and the last time Gaster caught them learning something he didn’t like, Papyrus got the ever-loving hell beat out of him. So Sans keeps quiet about it for now. And thus starts the long-standing tradition of keeping important secrets from his brother.

On the technical side, it took me a freakin’ week to sketch and outline this whole thing. Coloring and shading only took me like a day. In the meantime Zarla actually kinda addressed the cookie comic, but this was almost done by then so oh well. I’m finding my poses and proportions turn out a LOT better when I’m doodling skeletons, like what, drawing basic anatomy will make you better at anatomy, you don’t say?? A lot of this was a self-challenge to see if I could imitate Zarla’s art style, and I referenced previous Handplates comics a lot for the backgrounds and Sans’ face. Full disclosure: Gaster’s pose up there is basically copied from Zarla’s original comic because I was rushing through to get on to the actual meat of the story. He’s just here for setup. I had fun trying to figure out how to do his Lost Soul head though. Also, I hate Papyrus’ face from the front. Also also, it was tricky trying to convey “mentally translating an unknown alphabet into a known one” when pretty much everyone who sees this comic is already familiar with the “unknown” one and not the “known” one, but I think I pulled it off. 

TL;DR- I imitated somebody else’s style to do an AU of an AU; I am not Zarla; Zarla is the creator of Handplates and also Gaster’s pose in the first panel; I like ciphers too much and also I gave the cookies icing because that is the only kind of ginger cookie I know.

My tribute for @arcanebarrage. No words can explain the way I love this fic. Thank you so much for all those feelings.

Y’all click here and read it! You won’t regret!

30 Day Writing Challenge Day 5: Rain

The first thing Yuuri registered when he woke up was the soft pitter-patter of rain outside.

He smiled. Rain meant he could stay in bed just a little longer, since Victor liked to drag him out for a morning run. He liked running, but he also liked the feeling of just waking up, when your bed’s still warm and it’s the most comfortable place on Earth.

Yuuri pulled the sheets up to his neck and burrowed into his bed. He felt so nice, so warm and boneless. He could almost fall asleep again…

An ice cold hand traced over his side.

Yuuri shrieked and tried to wiggle away from the intrusion. An arm wrapped around his middle and pulled him back against a hard chest.

Yuuri turned over and saw a slightly blurred Victor. He smiled down at Yuuri and bent forward to kiss his forehead. Yuuri smiled and pushed his face into Victor’s neck. The hickey he left there last night stood out on his pale skin.

There were trees bursting with green leaves, their shade light enough to be warming and the amount small enough to be flourishing but not a forest. The cottage looked like a child’s dream; cream white walls were always concave or convex, never straight. A pink trim danced around the edges and the chimney looked like a triple layer cake that had half melted and then frozen again. The pathway was stone; large circles with stripes and dots fanning out from the center.

And there, seated on the wooden chair with no table, was the girl Aya had heard of.

Her grin was as bright as her skin was dark; the girl laughed and the sound rung through the mountain—valley—hill—whatever this place was. Aya didn’t know but the fact wasn’t as important as it might’ve been.

“Come out, come out,” the girl cajoled happily. “I can hear you moving around back there!”

Aya didn’t move from her place in the shadows. Here was the very person she was seeking, shining in the bright starlight, yet Aya felt paralyzed.

“You don’t have to run away.”

The voice—or maybe the wisdom that Aya sensed behind it—shocked her into speaking.

“I’m not running.”

“Well, not to him, certainly. Come on, come sit.” There was only one chair, but after Aya blinked there were two. She sat.

That, more than the hazardous journey or first spotting the girl, felt like freedom.

Kaz leaned back. “What’s the easiest way to steal a man’s wallet?”
“Knife to the throat?” asked Inej.
“Gun to the back?” said Jesper.
“Poison in his cup?” suggested Nina.
“You’re all horrible,” said Matthias.

Whoniverse: Class Appreciation Week – Day 4 – Favorite Theme: Inverted Tropes

Charlie is the white male protagonist–the alien prince without a people.  This is meant to be his tragic backstory.  She’s just the terrorist who attacked his people.  And yet…?  This becomes her story.  She is a freedom fighter against an oppressive regime.  The ‘tragic prince’ is the heir to a morally questionable monarchy.  He is not the hero (nor is she the villain) one would expect.
