look at them flying

In case you don't know what to draw

- Your favorite character with clothes they would never wear.
- A crack ship.
- Dance poses. Breakdance poses are always better.
- Backgrounds!!!!
- Think about a feeling/emotion, try drawing something that would make you feel that way.
- A magical/mythical creature.
- Modern day AUs are always fun.
- What would your fave’s room look like?
- Expressions! Extra points for making them exaggerated.
- Flying objects. Any kind of objects. Put some wings on a refrigerator.
- Your outfit!
- Design a mermaid. Or a sprite.

MVP Bird

Context: Same person as from the ‘non-lethal arrow to the head’ thing. This was from the same session. My Ranger (a half-elf) has a Goshawk companion she uses for scouting. For this particular scenario, I’m trying to send the bird to check out a camp over a hill to check if it’s travellers or Bandits, and before that I also rolled a Nat 17 on spotting the Camp in the first place with the bird.

Me: Can’t I tell Fluffball (that’s the bird’s name) to like… hop twice if it’s bandits? Would they even understand that?

DM: Um.. Roll an intelligence check for Fluffball.

Me: [Nat 20]

DM: ….. Well then. You see a look of concentration in your birds eyes, like you have never seen before, and it’s kind of unnerving. Fluffball looks at you, then nods, before flying off. You can barely make them out as a speck in the blue sky, doing circling motions for a good five minutes above the camp. Ok, now roll a perception check for Fluffball.

Me: Aight. [rolls ANOTHER Nat 20]

The entire party: [starts losing their shit, laughing loudly and wheezing]

Artificer Drow: Holy shit, Fluffball! MVP bird!

Me: [sputters and wheezes with laughter]

DM: When they return, they land on your arm, and through a series of hops, squawks and flaps - think of a bee’s dance telling you where the honey is - to tell you that these are bandits, they look bad, they smell bad, there may be something in cages, and they have weapons.

Me: [barely containing my laughter]

Artificer: Ok, but, would this all kind of look like Fluffball doing a mating dance to the rest of us?

Me: [starts laughing loudly]

DM: Yes. Definitely, yes. You watch Adrie (my half-elf Ranger) kind of hold their chin thoughtfully, going 'yes, yes. oh really? very interesting.’, while Fluffball does what they’re doing.

I was watching Room 237, which is a documentary about peoples’ different interpretations of The Shining, and one guy was talking about how it was all a metaphor for Stanley Kubrick filming the moon landing. And the thing that gets me is that he wasn’t a gung-ho moon landing denialist; he believes that we landed on the moon. Just that we couldn’t get any film footage. And that’s so fascinating to me; restrained conspiracy theories.

“The moon landing was fake! Oh, we landed on the moon, but it was so boring we had to fake it to make it look interesting.”

“There are spaceships in Area 51! We couldn’t get them to fly. By the time we worked out the bugs, they were made obsolete by stealth bombers.”

“There’s gender-changing hormones in our drinking water! But it’s balanced out by the chemicals in GMOs. I wouldn’t worry.”

“I don’t get it. We have a life. You and I. We got out. And you want to go back to the cage?”

“No. I want to b r e a k the cage.”

Date a beautiful being that no one can name.

Her skin is an inverted night sky, pale as snow with black stars like freckles covering her head to toe. She giggles when you connect the stars to create pictures.

She has the most beautiful deer horns made of silver, decorated with intricate carvings from long ago. It sends wonderful shivers down her spine when you trace the carvings with your fingers. 

Her hair is as soft as silk, naturally the colors of the deep sea, and adorned with roses that bloom while she is awake. If she allows, you may take a petal and watch as it turns into a beautiful charm. Wear it and her spirit will protect you on your journeys. 

Her eyes are large and black, and if you are deemed worthy, you may look into them and see into her thoughts, watching them fly by like comets. 

Her lips are the color of cherries and when you cannot sleep at night, they will part to sing you a lullaby and they will press against yours for comfort.

Hidden behind the soft cherries of her lips are two pointed canines that she will use to rip the flesh of anyone who has done you wrong.

Her nails are sharp like claws, yet she won’t use them to harm you, but she’d love for you to paint them the colors of the sunset.

A long tail with fur matching the hair on her head comes from her lower back. When you’re scared, she will wrap it around you and you may use it as a shield to protect you from your demons.

Her feet are paws, if you scratch the pads gently, you can hear her purr softly and watch as she drifts into sleep.

She will love you, protect you, kill and die for you, be there for you. But could you do the same for her?

I should probably stop right now, that’s already a lot.

Headcanon that Tony is the only Avenger who refuses to even attempt to lift Thor’s hammer, because he’s so goddamn adamant that he is unworthy, he doesn’t even try.

But then one day, when the Avengers are attacked while they’re off duty and Tony doesn’t have his suit, he watches someone take out Steve and aim a gun at his head. Tony feels his blood turn icy and without even thinking about it, he picks up the nearest object in his grasp and hurls it, watching in satisfaction as it collides into the person’s middle and sends them flying. 

It’s only when Steve looks over to him with a sort of stunned expression on his face, that Tony realises just what he’d done.

Thor just laughs, and picks up the hammer from where Tony had thrown it, stopping by to pat Tony on the shoulder and whisper “I knew it,” before launching himself into battle once more.

Oh yeah, and another thing: no one better ever, ever call Cat Grant a “mother figure” to Kara ever again, okay? Let’s put that shit to rest once and for all. Mothers don’t almost accidentally call their daughters hot while looking up their skirts as they fly away, after trying to tell them how much they’re in love with them, okay? Okay. Glad we figured that out.

When people are insulting you, there is nothing so good for them as not to say a word – just to look at them and think. When you will not fly into a passion people know you are stronger than they are, because you are strong enough to hold in your rage, and they are not, and they say stupid things they wished they hadn’t said afterward. There’s nothing so strong as rage, except what makes you hold it in – that’s stronger. It’s a good thing not to answer your enemies.

I really love your blog! Could you do Shinee as college students or their study habits?

hi anon! i love YOU

onew: 

  • everyone automatically assumed he was an upperclassman even as a freshman 
  • looks serious and pensive when he wears his glasses, still a dork tho
  • always in sweats bc he likes to be comfy 
  • never has meals??? someone pls swipe him 
  • never on campus bc naptime 
  • can catch him in the library tho he’s that kid trying to unwrap and eat a granola bar in the quiet part of the lib 
  • he would be embarrassed but otherwise his stomach will make whale mating calls and a crinkling wrapper is the lesser evil by far 

jonghyun: 

  • sick of hearing “working at starbucks” jokes bc he’s liberal arts
  • actually is part-time barista at starbucks on campus tho
  • always has at least two essays to write at all times but always chilling until deadlines 
  • around finals: “can you snort coffee”
  • so sleep deprived that he is on another plane of existence (”i can hear my heartbeat and i don’t think that’s something that should be happening”)
  • wears sunglasses everywhere and people think it’s because he’s just constantly hungover but no sometimes he just closes his eyes to nap for a few secs without anyone noticing 
  • go to every single event where they bring puppies to campus for stress relief 

key:

  • has a blanket and does work/read outside when the weather’s warm 
  • will turn down going out to finish homework….. and actually do homework
  • but also bingewatches netflix like it’s his job 
  • does not realize that sometimes he looks at the prof too intensely and like won’t blink??? for a really long time and they are sweating 
  • always featured in the uni brochure looking fly as hell (he keeps all of them and posts them on his wall but in an aesthetic way)
  • meticulous color coded notes!!! is he a person or a typewriter 
  • sticks out his tongue when he’s concentrating on studying 

minho: 

  • is always wearing some kind of school merch srsly the bookstore gets most of their money from choi sales 
  • also has a lot of other university merch bc he traded with friends 
  • a campus tour guide 
  • he knows all the history behind the buildings and when they were built and just wants the incoming students to feel welcome 
  • there is a GIANT blown up picture of him in the welcome center of him screaming at one of the football games 
  • he’s very proud of it and has taken a pic in front of it imitating himself (it’s his pro pic he’s never going to change it) 

taemin: 

  • always looks a little harassed bc he is once again late it’s just who he is as a person
  • can never remember where his classes are and it’s the end of the semester omg 
  • his phone background is his schedule 
  • eats an obscene amount in dining halls 
  • never raises his hand but when the prof calls on him bc they don’t think he’s paying attention he has really profound answers
  • when he was a frosh he had a legit map bc he was trying to find his building and a senior actually stopped and asked him if he was lost and helped him like he looked that helpless and sometimes he flashbacks to that moment randomly and it’ll probably haunt him for the rest of his life

since a lot of people are requesting college AUs i’m thinking of maybe doing a more extended version for each member later on! 

The Garden Fantail

This is widely considered to be the original Fantail. ^v^

You can see in this first bird the traits that were exaggerated into the American. The high, out thrust chest, the back angled neck, the forward lean up on tippy toes…

But this is a weanling, probably under ten weeks old, with a VERY full crop. 

Look at the following adults, showing the normal stance for this elegant breed.

Unfortunately, these aren’t shown in the US.

Which is such a shame.

Look at how well balanced this lovely bird is!

Look at the mobility of its lovely tail! It can choose to flair or drop it as it pleases. It can walk. It can fly. 

Look at them go. ^v^

Garden Fantails are still deeply beloved in England, where they are proudly shown. 

Colored birds are referred to as fantail pigeons, but white birds are colloquially referred to as fantail doves. 
They are still both pigeons. Same species. Same breed. One is marked and the other is not. (Specifying to clear up the terminology.)

You will occasionally find these in the US in pet shops, but they are not common and, God, what a shame!

I fell in love with this blog @crypticdatesuggestions and decided to make fanart, so enjoy!
