I don’t think he’s a “skank,” “drug mule,” “drunk,” “psycho,” or many other not so nice names in the MPC airport pics/vid. I do think he looks questionable. What happened to heath and fitness? Sure, people get tired traveling etc and it’s not that he has to be “on” 24/7 but this is definitely not the health freak Sam we know. His eyes look dead and empty. It’s like he gave up on life or someone is sucking the life and joy out of him. This is not to say that he is not reponsible for his behavior; you are the company you keep. I sincerely hope he has good people left in his corner who cares about him and not the fame and fortune that he brings to their friendship/relationship.
His hair is definitely not red. If anything, he might need Rogaine. All this makes me sad.
Would Sam ever come to this with Cait around him? I vote NO.
Hey update on the mask of Majora I’m making, all sanded and pretty. Well, not pretty, I kinda wanted it to look old and weathered so I left a few gouges (I just realized idk how to spell the plural form of gouge). I think it adds to it. My years of laziness have finally been paid off in full.
I will take progression pics. I can’t wait till it’s finished.
I’m late but I’m watching don’t hurt yourself rn like wow now we know why Beyonce went out here & tapped one of the most iconic rock musicians to help her cuss her man out. I remember one of my relatives saying that Jack White was singing on Don’t Hurt Yourself like Bey was his sister and he was letting her trifling man know what it was.
I don’t even know how to feel about the whole thing b/c I’m not a proponent of a woman staying w/ a partner that cheats ever. I always figured that Solange was throwing hands b/c Jay cheated & I guess it should have been clear that he had to have been really grimey to her sister to elicit that kind of reaction.
I weirdly expected more from Jay Z even though I sort of always knew he didn’t deserve Beyonce b/c so many men are with women they don’t deserve and treat poorly.
I adored the push party photos and look forward to seeing the new babies pics. I’m not saying I want her home to be broken up but I would not have been mad if Beyonce had left him and went and found a fine young billionaire to have wild thoughts with in pools, okay?
The past 2 weeks have shown me that too many Black men think that making Black women suffer for their lackluster, thin love is a good thing. I think the albums the carters have made r really important & I think they open up vital convos about black love and romance they need to be had.
These albums push the importance of accountability, introspection, living an examined life. I’m hoping it will push Black men to think about how they harm Black women and black LGBT folk who are the only ppl who have their backs in this harsh, racist society. That it will push them to deal with their shit individually & collectively and stop projecting it onto us (i.e. Kodak Black who, as others have noted, hates himself & his Blackness). It’s hella distressing to realize that Black women will walk through fire to help Black men but that so many Black men like to insult and mock us for not meeting their colorist and racist beauty standards.
In an interview Molly Crabapple said smthing like men have gotten women to buy into this idea that our beauty is the most valuable thing about us and that the more beautiful we are, the better they’ll treat us. And we can see that this isn’t true, we can be the most beautiful woman in the world and they will still act a fool.
Jay had the girl everyone wanted and yet he was still running in these streets. Clearly he, and not his wife, was deficient. It shows me that a man’s character is important. If he has no character it doesn’t matter what a woman does he will still mistreat her.
Anyway 4:44 is good, I hope Yonce’s happy with her choice and as always I wonder what it looks like for Black women to have a love that edifies and liberates and that does not demand suffering to keep it.
EP11 comparison! tv on the left and bd on the right (x) note: the last two bd pics were clearly distorted from the camera lens, so i fixed them a little bit according to how the backgrounds should look (ie no bendy walls/reflections)
you know that new meme of the guy looking away from the one girl and looking at the other girl? so the guy is me, and the girl on the right is carefully editing a funny pic to post, and the girl on the left is just describing the pic as a text post while i drink box wine on the couch because i’m apathetic and elderly
WE DID IT! After 3.5 months and 33 non-stop pages our first chapter is finally complete. Will Frisk make it back home, or will Chara succeed in taking their soul? And what the heck is Asriel doing there?
Now that chapter one is nicely buttoned up, we are taking a short breather to get ahead on pages and sort out some blog business. However, we aren’t going dark! To accommodate our prep time while keeping the blog active, Caretaker-AU will undergo a temporary schedule change.
Ah! Wow! Woah! Here’s the next month:
Next week (Feb 20-26): One week of quiet. No major updates!
The following 3 weeks (Feb 27 - Mar 17): Weekly updates on Mondays. That’s one page per week for the 3-page Interlude.
After that we will resume the usual 2 pages per week schedule.
Why the schedule change?
Quite a few reasons actually! While the blog will be quieter, us mods will still be frantically working behind the scenes to prep the next section. We’ll be using this month to…
Get ahead! Despite tons of unforeseen obstacles, we’ve managed to never miss an update day… barely. These interruptions ate up our backlog and lately we’ve been working up until the last second every week. In order to spare ourselves, we’ll be using this time to work ahead so we don’t suffer deadline fatigue.
Fix the blog! We have a new theme in the works that should be easier to navigate and hopefully work around the mobile app issues.
Open commissions! We’ll draw what you want for the right price! Since we will be working around the main comic schedule, commission slots will be limited to just a few a month. Keep an eye out for the announcement!
Secret stuff! We’ve got some other blog stuff we need to finish up, but you’ll find out about that later… it’s a surprise!
Finally sleep? Nah, probably not.
And of course, we will continue to answer asks and post fanwork as usual! :D
“Interlude?” What’s that?
In our grand plan, we are using the space between main chapters to share mini-chapters we are calling “Interludes.” These short one-shots will provide insight and backstory related to Caretaker, and are a part of the overarching story.
Will you do this every time?
According to our script, Chapter 01 is the longest chapter in the story. Because of this, we may not need to change the schedule at every chapter break. It will all depend on our workload! Interlude segments will always be between main chapter breaks.
tl;dr: Interlude starts on February 27 Chapter 02 starts on March 20
Crazy the difference makeup and 12 years in Azkaban can make, huh? ;) My makeup on the left was done by the amazing @aegiskitty ; I did the Sirius cosplay makeup on the right. I’m actually more familiar with fx makeup than the regular stuff, so I definitely needed some pointers. Pointer one: we nixed the beard on the left.
“You need to stop pining after people you haven’t even spoken to,” Lydia says one day, probably because Derek—er, Mr. Hale, their boss—has just stepped through the front door of the cafe where they’re having lunch, and Stiles has trailed off mid-word to watch him walk up to the counter. In Stiles’ defense, he’s never seen Mr. Hale outside of the office before, let alone Mr. Hale wearing a leather jacket over his dress shirt. God, and Stiles thought the tailored suits were bad enough…
“Uh, I have too spoken to him,” Stiles says indignantly, tearing his eyes away from Derek’s broad back across the room. “One day I was coming out of the break room and I almost walked right into him and he said, ‘Excuse me,’ so then I said, ‘Oops,’ and he smiled at me. Kind of. A little bit. I mean, I interpreted it as a smile. There was some prolonged eye contact.”
Lydia abruptly stops stirring her fat-free latte to stare at him—one of those Oh god, it’s worse than I thought kind of looks. “That’s it?”
