no i don't know what i was thinking

i don’t think it’s fair for people (non-artists especially) to point out an artist and say “wow i hate their art they suck they haven’t progressed in years, the way they draw _____ is pathetic”. yes, it’s okay for you to not like an art style but don’t put someone down for their progress. development in art is something that doesn’t move upwards consistently in a smooth path, it’s different for everyone and it’s not fair to compare and judge. even the most popular artists can get stuck drawing the same thing for a long time and i think that’s okay? some people get really comfortable with the way they draw a certain thing and may choose to stick with that for a long time because it looks right to them, they’re fearful of trying a new thing and the new thing looks like trash in their eyes so it might take them a while to get comfortable with exploring. everyone is different and develops in their own way, art is frustrating and really hard and no one is harder on the artist than themselves. 

“No one knows anything, really. It’s all rented, or borrowed.”

Part 1

“Hey, Bruce, wait up!”

The billionaire let out a sigh. It was late, and he was tired. It was true that John was, by far, the least bothersome person he could have come across, but at the same time, he was still one of the most energetic people Bruce has ever seen, and that was no mean feat, what, with all the life-sucking socialites he had to deal with almost daily.

Even so, he slowed his pace, allowing John to fall into step with him. He only hoped the other man wouldn’t ask him for more relationship tips, or anything concerning human interaction, really. Considering what happened with Catwoman…

But no. It was unfair to blame it all on Selina. He could have done better as well. It was his own fault to have expected her to be someone other than herself, all for his own comfort. He didn’t even know why he wanted her to change. It wasn’t as if he were a saint. Far from it, in fact.

Maybe they could have worked, had things gone differently. If they were different.

In another life, maybe.

“Bruce?”

In another life.

“Are you all here?”

Bruce shook his head slightly, chasing the thoughts away, turning his gaze onto John. “Yeah, I’m fine. Sorry, you wanted to talk to me about something?” he asked.

John squinted at him, trying to gauge what was going through his mind. Finally, he said:

“Maybe some other time. You seem preoccupied enough.”

Huh.

John was getting better at reading people.

Or just better at reading Bruce.

“Well, I guess I better let you be then. I know you’re more of a nighttime person,” he finished with an almost knowing grin.

And as Bruce made his way back home, he wondered for the hundredth time, just how much did John Doe know.

Ignis. Loves. Noctis.

That is all.

anonymous asked:

What do you think about the age of consent in Japan?

That it’s 13 in some places, but that only applies to 13-17 year olds when it comes to sex itself. However anyone of any age can do things like groping, kissing, etc to them, despite the fact they’re FUCKING CHILDREN??? And there are places where people can actually PAY to do that to fucking KIDS and it’s completely legal?

…Gross.

anonymous asked:

I️ liken Harry to Freddie so much (for years but especially as a solo artist) that it didn’t even occur to me that anyone would argue about that answer but antis and hets always find a way I️ guess. It must be exhausting not to be able to enjoy how fabulous Harry is lol

SBB is Louis and RBB is Harry, then it makes sense that RBB was always dressing up as Freddie Mercury when it turns out that he has always been his influence this entire time ;_;

people can stay distressed but ultimately it doesn’t change their knowledge and admiration of lgbt artists ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Kat,,,,,,,keith Cries,,,,,,,,,fanon keith is dead,,,hes,,,,,emotiONAL,,,

Dude. Dude, I know. Here’s some great stuff about Keith that fandom can no longer deny:

  • when asked to describe himself he first comes up blank
  • no mentions of his talents whatsoever?? he’s not arrogant
  • in fact he has no trouble admitting that he’s bad at something
  • keeps saying that he pilots the black lion but refuses to say that he’s the black paladin
  • he thinks that being part Galra might be why he has always been bad at connecting with people 
  • automatically plays around with his knife when the Galra part gets mentioned
  • THE STUPID CHEER FROM S1 IS STILL ON HIS MIND
  • is very straightforward and wants to avoid complicated stuff as much as possible
  • apologized twice for blowing up; he’s self-conscious about his temper
  • [voice crack] “I don’t know why I’m that way”
  • is aware of his abandonment issues
  • is also aware that he puts some walls up
  • tries to compose himself by rubbing his fingers together
  • knows when he is about to cry and promised himself not to do it ((in front of the camera/a potential audience at least))

HE’S. SO GREAT. SO SO GREAT. He’s much more self-aware than fandom gives him credit for. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH ;A;

Ravenclaw Headcanon

Ravenclaws love and hate ambient noise. It needs to be a specific kind of noise depending on what they’re doing, and if it varies too far from the ambient noise they wanted, they just find it distracting.

I always wanted to be a rock star. That was my childhood dream. That’s what I told everybody I was going to be when I grew up.
