After the last pose I did this one feels a bit lifeless lol I’ll probably touch it up again tomorrow I’m very tired
Royal!Nidalee, or Queen Ararevia
Trained in sorcery and forged in battle, she leads a tribe of fearsome warriors that are completely and utterly loyal to her. Often regarded as the Kingdom of Savages, any and all attempts by other kingdoms to conquer and colonise her lush jungle kingdom have failed due to the magnificent prowess of her people and the Queen herself.
Her jewelry is engraved and filled with silver which is commonly found in mines in her kingdom. Other than agriculture, silver is their main export. The spots around her eyes are silver dots made by combining alcohol with silver dust, and she wears engraved silver braces. Her dress is made of green silk, but she only wears it on formal occasions. Most times she is dressed no differently from her people, in fur and deerskin. The only thing that would set her apart would be her hair and her jewelry (earrings, necklace and bracers).
The markings on her face and torso are earned as she ages and goes through stages in her training in sorcery. Being marked, even with 3 or 4 markings, is considered a high honor, showing that the person had a firm grasp of the magics that originates from the land that is her kingdom. Elder sorcerers are marked far more than she is, and she trains amongst the higher order.
“It’s a good thing I’m way too fucking lazy to have unpacked most of my things – I can just grab a suitcase or two and be set for Bora Bora. I’ll be overpacked for just four days but, hey, you never know how many outfit changes you might need. Have to keep the people guessing, you know?” Green eyes flicker towards the room’s entrance at the figure that inspired his monologue and the smile on his face grows by default. “How about yourself? All ready to go?”
as in, they consider it a minor disorder, something that doesnt have as much of an effect on someone as other disorders, just a little inconvenience, a little quirk
i mean, like all disorders, the extent of its effect varies widely depending on the individual, so it may not be a big deal to some people with it
but for some, adhd can drastically impair functioning - it can be debilitating.
all of the following comes from personal experience, as someone with severe adhd
adhd stimming can make you look weird in public - violently shaking legs, fiddling with thumbs, sudden tics, etc. people may make fun of you or chastise you for it, but you cant help it - staying still can evoke a strong feeling of discomfort that is difficult to describe to someone without adhd.
adhd can seriously hinder academic performance. adhd kids may be unable to remember or complete homework, to focus on studying, to finish tests in the allotted times (even 504 extended time may not be enough), to pay attention to teacher lectures and therefore be unable to secure the information, deadlines are a challenge…list goes on.
its not an easy fix. when you have adhd, forcing yourself to focus is much more difficult than someone without adhd would expect. youll read the same sentence over and over again, unable to process it, trying so hard to focus that it manifests into a weird, extremely uncomfortable physical feeling in your head, leaving you squirming in your seat. your mind will irrepressibly drift of at random, and you wont even realize and snap out of it until five minutes into zoning out, five minutes of lost time.
more severe than needing to bounce your leg a lil bit in order to focus
For an actor to have the chance to go and play something that’s far away from yourself, physically and also in terms of personality, character, is so much fun. It’s slightly terrifying that you won’t live up to it, but it’s just the most creatively satisfying challenge.
