little compliments

compliment people. not in the “fake” way, but in the sense that if you notice how great their hair looks, or how hard they have been working in the past few days, or how cute and inspiring their blog is, tell them. they’ll appreciate it, and maybe blush a little or smile, eyes lightening up, and maybe that little compliment or ask will make their day.


Leo is usually the one to make Takumi flustered, but sometimes Takumi catches him off guard (▰˘v˘▰) 

Just wanted to draw Leo being the big tomato he really is. Also RIP TAKUMI.

(Base on one of Takumi’s english My Castle lines. Reposted from my FE twitter!)

I’d rather take coffee than compliments just now.

AU + 5 headcanons: How does the "half feral fire bender" Zuko's story end in the events of S3?

Continued from here: [Link] and here: [Link]

1. As far as Book Three goes, by far the biggest change is that Zuko joins up with the Gaang in Book Two during “The Chase”, so he is already a well established member of the Gaang, the same way Toph is, since they joined at about the same time.  In part this means that when they sneak on board the Fire Nation ship and sail to the Fire Nation, he is there to share in the despair and fear they’re all feeling.  He is also able to smooth over some bits of Fire Nation culture clash for them, like explaining to Aang that the clothes he picked are a school uniform, and if he wears them, he’ll get dragged in for truancy.

2. Hama takes one look at the former Fire Nation soldier traveling with the Avatar and his friends and singles him out for kidnap.  He goes missing under the light of the full moon, and the gaang sets out to find him while Katara studies waterbending with Hama.  Afterwards, Hama’s story, and Hama’s rearrest, bring up Zuko’s past as a prison guard.  He opens up to the Gaang about the Boiling Rock and his experiences there.

3. On the Day of Black Sun, Zuko tells the Gaang how to get into the bunker, but other than that, not much changes.  Azula is still able to delay them for long enough for the eclipse to end, and they still have to escape by the skin of their teeth, leaving the adults behind.

4. Speaking of the Boiling Rock… Zuko’s story means that Sokka knows where his father and the other Southern Water Tribe warriors are probably being kept.  He takes Zuko with him to get them.  At the Boiling Rock, things have changed since Zuko was there last.  Mai’s uncle has been transferred away, and Mai herself is a prisoner, in a cell next to Suki’s actually, because that’s just the way Azula is.   Also at least half the guards know and recognize Zuko, and it’s not hard for him to spin a yarn about being transferred back.  It’s Sokka who gets caught and thrown into prison, and it’s his presence as one of the Avatar’s companions that causes Azula to come, only to find her brother there too, leading an escape.  In the end, Sokka and Zuko are able to rescue their girlfriends and Sokka’s dad, and it’s Ty Lee who fights to protect them and is thrown into prison for her betrayal.

5. After the Boiing Rock, when Azula attacks, the Gaang flies off and accidentally finds the Sun Warriors.  Aang and Zuko have their little dance with the dragons, Sokka makes fun of them, the Sun Warriors glare at him, Katara hits him in the head. Good times.

Writing on your arms

Jefferson scribbles things such as stupid funny inside jokes

Alexander writes essays on his arms in class.

John doodles turtles on his arm

Herc draws patterns that match each other (Eg Swirls, A tree…)

Lafayette writes little compliments and words in english that he’d need to remember

Aaron just writes how salty his is and how much he loves his partner.

James often writes lists of things he needs to do that day down his arm, often stopping after the 1st or 2nd one

It’s the little things he does that make you fall in love. Like the way he always texts you good morning, or the way he tells you he loves you and compliments your known insecurities. It’s the way he holds your hand and kisses your cheek and whispers “I wish things could always be like this.” You don’t need flowers or jewelry to know he cares, just his words and the way he looks at you will prove that.

“That’s what you are, a bee charmer.”

I’m lucky enough that I can count the number of disparaging anons I’ve recieved on one hand, but this actually hurts.

I work on Home every day, as I have done for the last 2 years, and every day I beat myself up a little for being such a slowpoke. Making the art has been therapeutic for me. I’ve always favored movies over books because I believe visuals add something that words can’t capture, so I try my hardest to create the same for my story. W, something like this makes me feel like thousands of hours I’ve spent drawing is worth nothing to your eye; why would you want to bring an author down like that?

Fanfic authors/fanartists do this for free. I will need another couple months to make Home perfect with an abundance of paintings, whether you’re there to read it or not.

How would the RFA+Unknown react to an MC that is super self-conscious about their appearance? I'm mostly asking for how they would boost MC's confidence. Thanks in advance! ❤️

o   Yoosung

·         If sweet boy ever saw you down I can guarantee he will be all over you for the next couple of hours

·         Yoosung would be following you as you walked around the apartment giving you little compliments

·         “Mc, you smell really nice today!”

·         “Oh Mc, can you help me fold these socks? You do it so well.”

·         “You know Mc you kind of remind me of a bunny, just cute and soft and…”

·         He tries is best…

·         And hey, his silly compliments are sweet!

·         If you went somewhere without him you can be sure to receive cute little encouraging messages every few minutes

·         “Hey babe,, u r cute!! Love u ;*”

·         Yoosung never left you feeling less about yourself for long

o   Zen

·         Hearing that you don’t think as highly of yourself as he does makes Zen sad

·         But he’s creative…

·         And he can think of a few good ways to distract you…

·         He strides into the bathroom coming up behind you staring at yourself in the mirror…

·         Shirtless…

·         Zen whispered into your ear and you immediately began to feel your cheeks flare at his words

·         “Princess, let me show you how beautiful you really are. I want you to feel how much you mean to me…”

·         He led you quickly to the bedroom once you nodded at him shyly

·         You ended the night exhausted and feeling quite a bit precious

·         I mean who wouldn’t after a night with Zen worshipping you??

o   Jaehee

·         Jaehee thinks you’re pretty diddly darn gorgeous.

·         You think you’re not cute???

·         What??? How???

·         Jaehee would set aside her work for the evening and get you both on the couch

·         She’d slip in a favorite movie of yours and grab your favorite snack

·         And then she would just keep you close

·         You began to feel better as she wrapped her arm around you and pulled you closer

·         You both went back and forth whispering sweet things about each other

·         You know that warm fuzzy feeling? Well, you both were filled with it and love.

o   Jumin

·         Jumin was completely baffled when you admitted to him that you were self conscious

·         You were honestly the first(and only) person Jumin was genuinely attracted to

·         Your face, body, and soul were all beautiful to him

·         Nevertheless you would receive a package from him during the day

·         And inside would always be one of the prettiest pieces of clothing you’ve ever seen

·         A note would be attached letting you know at what time to be ready for Jumin to pick you up for a date

·         He would come to the door and knock as if he was your high school boyfriend arriving at your home to pick you up for a date

·         Jumin swears that every time he sees you it leaves him awestruck

·         As you both slip into the car for a wonderful evening he never fails to fill your heart with loving words to reassure you

o   707

·         He always compliments you in the wackiest ways


·         All of your electronics would be ringing constantly

·         Little 707 emojis popping out of nowhere while you are messaging or just going through social media to remind you how wonderful you are

·         You’d walk into your bedroom fully ready to just collapse into bed

·         And Seven would jump out and smother you in hugs and kisses


·         You’d end up in his lap exchanging quick kisses back and forth all night long

Lots of love, L💖

i’ve never really been one to be drawn close towards someone because of their beauty, it’s more about their conversations. the way their minds think, the books they have read, the dreams they dream, stories, loads and loads and loads of stories, i wanna know what i can learn from them, i want them to admire the scenery with me, to see a tree and see so much more, to see a sunset and feel the world in their hands, to admire the beauty of life and compliment the little things and to just talk, i love conversations, i love knowing what other people think about topics i’m so passionate about.

The Meme and His Tutor

So the way this fic is going to be laid out is that the chapters are days or moments. I plan for this to be a fluffy, light-hearted fic. No angst. I’ll also suggest a song to listen to per chapter to help readers know what tone I was trying to achieve.

Part 1: The Day The Meme Met His Tutor

Recommended Song: Love by MAMAMOO



It all started with a fan meeting. You had wanted to make an impression on your bias, Jungkook, so you used what Korean you had learned so far to put together a compliment. Little did you know how that one moment would lead to many more.

Genre: Fluff, comedy

Pairing: Jungkook X Reader (Y/N)

Warnings: None for now. May change. Who knows.

Word Count: 1444

Length: 1/?

I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself.
