might play with it more

Just randomly remembered neopets existed again and logged in- so there’s a new plot and you can now own five pets! A shame there’s no decent names in the pound and icr any logins except for my main so  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Ahh, it’s time for my favorite pastime of combining AUs with other AUs. This time I played around with @mist-lightning-snap’s kwami power swap by combining it with my (slightly altered) genderbends. I also incorporated @princessofharte idea of the kwami’s retaining their personalities same as before, with Jabii being overly-confident and therefore lazy because she’s a tiny goddess of good fortune! What could go wrong! and Yuun trying to be super encouraging despite the misfortune he brings.

Some other details for this au..within an au…

  • Jabii’s name comes from the Korean word 자비 which means mercy/charity (just added another “i” to fit Kwami naming conventions)
  • Yuun’s name stems from 厄运 (Èyùn) which is Chinese for “bad luck/doom”
  • I decided to switch Adrienne’s name to Aurélie, which is something I’ve been thinking about doing for awhile…
  • I gave Marin a Chinese name, 海明 (HăiMing) which means “bright/clear sea” to go with Marin meaning “sailor/of the sea”
  • Aurélie has blue/green eyes and Marin’s are now hazel
  • “Arlequin” is just French for harlequin and Aurélie’s is just the feminine equivalent of “minou”.. I was not uh.. feeling too creative in the hero name department today (so it’s subject to change). 
  • I haven’t figured out their powers yet but they will be slightly different from Tikki’s and Plagg’s…
  • Sometimes Marin wears his hair up out-of-suit but not often. Opposite goes for Aurélie wearing her hair down. She usually has it up somehow.
  • Marin and Aurélie only know each other in this AU as heroes! Not as civilians (yet)

“A thousand dreams within me softly burn” -Arthur Rimbaud

anonymous asked:

I read somewhere todd/darren said in 2b we will get Magnus' side of story. Thank God?! Finally? I can't really blame the interviewer by saying Magnus was not as into it because did we really get any magnus pov of malec besides his short talk with maia at the bar? Alec, to me, has always been the protagonist in malec's storyline.

I will agree that Magnus’ feelings were pretty sidelined in 2x07 regarding them taking the “next step” and that was problematic, but outside of that we actually did get strong insight into how Magnus felt. It seems people forgot about season 1, but it’s worth noting that in s1 most of the complaints were that Magnus expressed his feelings too much. So that’s something to keep in mind.

Anyway, their relationship is about them growing together as individuals. It’s always odd to me because there seems to be two parties: people who think he’s expressing too much and people who think he isn’t expressing enough The criticisms always seem to land on Magnus’ behavior or character, often while disregarding multiple scenes in the past that have shown the contrary.

Magnus is a complicated individual and it’s important to take into account his development from season 1, where his pursuit of Alec made it quite clear he wanted to be with him. As sloppy as the writing has been in s2, the setup has always been pretty obvious with malec: in 2x01, it’s acknowledged Alec abandoned his wedding for himself, not for Magnus or for their relationship. And so the majority of s2a from then on has been about Alec taking steps forward to show Magnus (and viewers) that yeah, he did that for himself, but everything he’s doing here onward? He’s doing it for Magnus, for them, for this relationship, because it’s important to him and he wants it. And so you have Alec coming to Magnus after Jocelyn, his choice at the end of their date, the gift, the this, us, it’s not going away, the i was terrified. These moments aren’t strictly about Alec’s pov; it’s also about demonstrating how invested Alec is in the relationship, as well, after Magnus made all of the initial moves in s1 (calling him, inviting him to stay the night, that talk in 1x12, showing up at the wedding) not to mention the things he’s done in s2 (saving Alec’s life in 2x03, prodding Alec into taking a break so they can have a real date, etc.)

You also have to realize that Magnus has fallen in love before. Like, yes, every love is new, but Magnus is significantly more emotionally self-aware. He knows he’s in love with Alec because he’s felt these things before. Alec is not only falling in love for the first time but also struggles with processing his emotions in general, so what triggers his realization and thus his declaration is more dramatic.

That said, there should be more of Magnus initiating the physical aspects of their relationship, like kisses, but that’s a different issue altogether.

There isn’t a day that goes by that Taylor Swift music isn’t blasted in my house. Right now, her new song with Zayn … if I play it one more time, I might combust.

I love her. I was just talking to Emma Roberts about her the other day and we were reading the inside of her booklet for Red, and she has this amazing little excerpt she wrote inside about different kinds of love. She’s really an amazing songwriter and her music is just the best girl music ever.

some reasons why s3 is my favorite

Bro the new episode basically bitch-slapped inspiration into me and I just had to draw Rarity with her new hairstyle and punk-rock look. She really pulled the look off! Also, just so you guys know the thing in her mouth is just a lollipop. >.>

Anyway yeah, the episode was so charming, Rarity looked amazing, and I might end up playing with the Rockstar!AU some more now because wow.

villains are hard to play --

Please remember that just because someone is playing a villainous character doesn’t mean that they don’t love their character, or don’t have a version of it that is perhaps new to you. Respect the muns of villains as much as you would respect any other mun, and remember to work with them. 

It is very hard to play a villainous character in a world full of heroes and cinnamon rolls, and the muns who pick them up and are willing to give them a try deserve some extra support and love, because they’re going to need it. Love the villain muns, respect their autonomy as players, and don’t try to force their character to submit to your plot desires just because you’re playing a hero. Heroes might not always win, and heroes are not always more interesting, not always better characters – they’re just typically more popular because most of us want to be good, and it’s a lot easier to self-insert with a morally good character for many people.

Respect your villains. If they’re canon characters, don’t assume that they’re all the same as every other one you’ve seen. If they’re original, respect that their mun is giving you a neat new antagonist to deal with. 

Conflict is necessary, and villain muns deserve to enjoy their RP experience, too!
