Either/Or: Krypton

Supercorp AU where Krypton never exploded but Kara & Lena still meet & fall in love anyways. Whether Kara still ends coming to earth or Lena goes to Krypton.

It was the squint of light that finally reached her eyes that woke her, though she battled it tiredly, digging her head into her pillow. The long night mingled in her bones, making itself nice and cozy in the sheets of the bed, tangling up in her limbs and keeping her disinterested in leaving. Until she remembered.

[I really hate when people call the Ferengi the Jewish species of Star Trek. Not just because Vulcans were intended for that purpose, but because when you sit down and watch DS9, it’s obvious to me that the real ‘Space Jews’ of that series were the Bajorans, between the occupations, the clinging to their faith after unfathomable tragedy and the way the fallout of the occupation will affect generations yet to come. ]

this is literally here for archival purposes and because i just liked it a lot

Jello can you seperate your political reblogs from everything else? I enjoy what you share but every 1 in 10 posts you get political and if youre gonna be like that, id advertize this blog as more of a personal blog instead of a professional one.

Nah, sorry.

I’ve never understood the point of separating blogs on tumblr except for archival purposes like art blogs. My “professional” job is already just my opinions on cartoons and things. Separating personas seems really fake to me anyways. What you see is what you get!

Bee’s Modest Art Arsenal

I made a comprehensive list of all the stuff I typically use to make art as of right now. It’s not meant to be an end-all-be-all for art supplies by any means, just… stuff I like! And it’s largely affordable whenever possible, yay!!! Some of my favorite art products I find completely on accident or in unlikely places so never be afraid to give it a shot if it calls to you! My list is under the cut, and ofc, all photos are not mine and used purely for educational purposes.

Hello, Dolls

My name is Jo. Most of you should know me from my writing blog, @memento-scribet (or even my main blog, @memento-amare), but to those of you who have appeared randomly from the void, it is nice to meet you. I’m just your regular fangirl who likes to create content for one of my favorite fictional worlds. 

The purpose of this blog is to create an archive for plus sized reader fics. I have seen a few floating around here and there, but I really want to create a safe space for them all to exist, while hyping some hard working writers as well. What I would like you guys to do is send me the fics you come across while just scrolling through your regular reading. It’ll make my job just a little bit easier. You can just shoot me an ask with the name of the fic and the blog where it is posted, or shoot me a message with the link to the fic. At any rate, I would love for this to be a bit of a community effort. 

Mod Post - Back home

I am really reaaaaaally tired. I had a very fun trip. My feet still hurt. My pets are happy I’m back.

So, time to get back to work.

I still don’t want to start MM yet. Just thinking about starting makes me feel exhausted. So, I might put it off for a few days while I get back into the grove of things.

I’ll be adding events that have already started here in a bit. I need them for archive purposes, so if you see an event posted that has been out for days, that is why.

I will be working on posts for my trips to OKKO and CYBIRD’s offices as well, so look forward to those. :)

Uhh.. that’s it for now.

It’s you who cares about that (or, of pride and insecurity)

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything of this sort (or anything, really!) but there’s a thought that came to me a few days back that kept growing in my head, so. I’m not sure if it’s much more than personal rambling at this point, but I might as well write it down – because even as the years pass, I find myself more and more able to relate to certain aspects of this stupid dynamic called Harurin, and it makes me appreciate it that much more.

Monster - Season 3 Countdown Post

So one thing I like immensely about the Magnus Archives is that you very rarely have monsters who do evil things just because they’re evil. Usually they always have more of a purpose or motivation to what and why they do that, even though it’s not always clear from the perspective we have, what that exactly is. Some appear evil in a human context, but if taken out of it really just work on a completely different moral system or do things because this is part of what they are or what they do. I doubt that the giant being mentioned in Ex Altiora or the one Antonia Hayley saw in ‘Under Pressure’ have any interest in humans, but their existence alone is truly terrifying. There are the anatomy students, who have absolutely no concept of anything human or social etiquette.

And then you have these kind of episodes where stereotypical horror movie elements and monsters are turned on their head, like with the mummy in episode 64 ‘Burial rites’. The evil mummy trope is such a recognizable concept that people are familiar with, that the twist really does come as a surprise. And that is that the mummy is not out to kill someone but wants to die.

There are monsters who take delight in hurting humans, of course. But it’s the mix that makes it. Not everything is inherently evil or does things because ‘evil’. And sometimes that makes the monsters in the Magnus Archives even more terrifying.

For @promptoweek Day 7 - Happy Birthday!

I was really hoping to be able to do more than just one prompt for this week, but work has been pretty crazy busy lately, and in the end, I was only able to finish this one. *shrug* At least I managed to get something done! xD

Pairing: Promptis (minor, prompto-centric)

Rating: T

Summary: Prompto has learned over the years that the only purpose birthdays serve in the Argentum household is for his parents to find all different ways to disappoint him, because that’s all they ever do. Prompto can at least hope that maybe, this year things might be different. After all, this is his first birthday to come around since becoming friends with Noctis. Things had to be different this time, right?

Just wanted to say that he's not Komaeda, he's Edmond Dantes from Fate/Grand Order.

Yes, I am aware! I’m quite the type-moon fan myself. Sorry if my tag confused anyone. It was there more for archival purposes in the text located in the post.

But you gotta admit, Komatsuzaki-san’s art really does translate between whatever he happens to be drawing. It’s very distinct. I mean look at it:

the colors

the super smooth lines

the detAIL

this accidentally turned into a komatsuzaki appreciation post I’m sorry

height differences

{daiya no ace} → furuya!centric ; furuya/haruichi | wc; 1162

in which haruichi is underestimated and furuya really doesn’t understand why

note: old drabbles - purely for archiving purposes

Furuya has met a lot of batters in his time.

Just 15 years old from a no name junior high school and already he has several reporters trailing after him and masses of fangirls with their shrill coos of ‘Furuya kun’s and Furuya thinks that he might hate it.

A name is sloppily being forced over his head, stitched messily onto the back of his jersey; printed just underneath the number he’s worked so hard to get. The monster rookie. And it’s no wonder that scouts are searching for him, seeking him out; scribbling down statistics and analysing his pitches.

shreyosis  asked:

Because reptiles are somewhat tame from being bred in captivity for so long, do you think that we'd be able to to the extra step and domesticate them in a human lifetime by selectively breeding for inherently human friendly animals right out of the egg, for example Bearded Dragons?

This hearkens back to a discussion of domestication we had here almost exactly a year ago (you can go search it in the archives - it was right at the end of August). Domestication in the academic sense is more than just breeding for inherent friendliness: it’s a complicated combination of finding animals whose social structures and needs are things we can manipulate and breeding them to serve a specific purpose (of which companionship is not considered to count, according to most academic definitions). Most domesticated animals are mammals, because the process requires things like a flexible diet, high rate of reproduction, and a social structure that humans can manipulate. Reptiles don’t really hit a lot of those markers, so the best I think we could really do would be breeding for tame behavior. 

anonymous asked:

what are your brush settings/brush preset for your sketches that give it that pencil-y look? I'm dying to find one myself.

kecky’s magical brushes are my absolute favorite sketchy brushes in the universe, and I say this as someone who’s gone through a LOT of sketchy brushes. I normally use a mix of #1 and #2 for the sketchy-crayon look!

(and while I’m sharing brushes, I ink 99% of the time with Dave’s Camelhair Brush. :D)

[I really hate the Chakotay and seven relationship in the last episode of voyager. For like the entire show the EMH was in love with her but then SURPRISE now she’s with Chakotay..? Their relationship was so sudden and forced and not real and I wish it just wasn’t included at all. It seemed to serve no purpose whatsoever]

anonymous asked:

Look we re all sick to death of all your caryl fantasies. I am not saying you are bad at writing but you should really file your little stories under fan fiction cause that's where they belong. It's not nice to see someone waste their talent so since I believe you write some good stuff if you insist on not calling it what it is FICTION can you at least write something real, something about what Daryl and Beth have going on? Their relationship happened and caryl didn't?

Dear Anon,

I feel rather strangely conflicted about your message because while YOU are giving ME a compliment YOU are also insulting MY own sense of reality and essentially suggesting that MY opinions and MY perceptions are in fact delusional or as you say - fictional!
That implies that you either think I am crazy, that I can’t think for myself or that I can’t be trusted to distinguish between something real and something imagined.
Of course you might also be concerned that I am not familiar with Tumblr tags and that i might be mistakenly “filing” my posts in the wrong place? Another reason could be that you wanted to perhaps send me a prompt or a topic suggestion for a future blog post?

Regardless of your intent I guess you are expecting me thank you for the message, explain myself and my posts to you and basically assure you that I will now rectify the situation with your help?
I think we both know that the chances of that happening are pretty slim…right?
But you were somewhat complimentary and somewhat polite so I will try to give you the same courtesy back and dignify your message with a proper response….

First of all the posts you are referring to just like all the other “analysis”, speculation, discussion or opinion blogs on tumblr (regardless of fandom) are indeed fictional and based purely on the authors personal opinion on the subject or the authors own interpretation of the topic at hand. Nobody claims that their writing is entirely factual because nobody could ever be 100% accurate, 100% of the time - we are all commenting on someone else’s work so we can never be sure of the original purpose or intent that the creator had in mind in the first place.

My CARYL metas are written on what I perceive, feel or think TWD is trying to say about the relationship between two fictional characters - Carol and Daryl!
I share my own view about what these two people have together, I suggest the direction I personally feel their connection is headed, I contemplate their future relationships and interactions with others AND I express how I feel about who and what they are.

I might be completely WRONG BUT I think the issue here is that you are concerned at just how RIGHT I might be!
I think my hopefulness about CARYL in the future is making you uncomfortable, I think reading my posts is threatening your own perception of Daryl and Carol’s connection and I think you want me to stop reminding you that there is a very likely alternative relationship direction TWD writers just might finally follow through on!

I get it! It’s upsetting for sure!
Nobody likes to be shown something they don’t like and nobody certainly wants to doubt or be told that something they feel “happened” actually didn’t at all!
Carylers have had to hear that CARYL is “delusional”, “forced”, “old news”, “ridiculous”, “imagined”, “wishful thinking”, “pathetic”, “dead”…
I’ve seen it all before, it’s made me mad, it’s made me laugh, it’s made me bitter and it’s even made me sad! It was hurtful and mind numbing but unlike you I didn’t actively go searching for it, I didn’t go into other ship tags and wasted time reading that ships interpretations, I didn’t message other shippers and insult them, I didn’t comment to tell them they were wrong and I certainly didn’t send passive aggressive messages like this one and ask them to write something about “Daryl and Beth”!

If I saw a post that was hateful, mean or even irrelevant to CARYL I simply blocked the blogger, black-listed words I knew could ruin my mood and made sure to follow people on my dash that talked about things they LOVED and not things I HATED.
It was a simple strategy and it’s definitively not perfect but it usually works pretty great!
I am telling you - it will make you feel so much calmer and so much better if you give it a try!

I am sorry if my posts hurt your feelings or upset you in any way - it wasn’t my intention of course and if you go back in my archive I can guarantee you that I have never tagged anything written by me with another ship. I don’t need negativity in my life and doing so would only invite trouble and pointless bickering. I write about things I love so why would I purposely go searching for or inviting others who I know are just waiting to ruin it for me?
Block me and forget me I exist - it’s really that simple!

However for the record I don’t deny neither Carol and Daryl OR Daryl and Beth - both relationships happened BUT for me they happened differently than they did for you.

Carol and Daryl have been building a very strong, close emotional connection that has inspired a change within them both to a point that they became stronger, happier and “whole” together. For four seasons they have continued to get closer, more comfortable and more essential to one another AND they did it by choice, because they gravitated towards one another as a man and a woman.

Daryl and Beth have been in close proximity since season two and yet made no attempts to have any kind of a personal relationship with each other until they were “forced” to be in close proximity and alone together. Both didn’t know or understand one another until they basically had no other choice but to be in the same place. The extreme circumstances and shared grief bonded them together and I see them as having a very close familial relationship now BUT nothing I saw on screen gave me any indication that there might be a reciprocated romantic bond between them.

Beth and Daryl happened BUT Carol and Daryl did too - I see CARYL as being much more significant, more powerful and ultimately the only one that’s been developed in a way that promises a lasting romantic LOVE potential between two damaged and yet beautiful people.

This is my opinion, the way I interpret the things I personally see and I have the right to say so - just as you are free to disagree with me and see the whole debacle differently!
Now that you know how I see Daryl and Beth if you want me to write a meta on them I can certainly do that BUT somehow I doubt that’s the reason you reached out to me.

Just remember you have the power to make me go away with a click of a button - it’s not complicated and I can see that it might bring you some peace of mind.
Only you have the power to make my “CARYL Fantasies” disappear from your dash or wherever you ended up finding me…

Brownies!

JET I saw that you lost your brownie recipe. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. Fortunately, I saved it to my Xkit archive, because of course I did. Here you go!

Brownie recipe for nomtimes

Lots of enthusiastic YAY BROWNIE RECIPE over on the main blog, so sticking here. I just had one and mmmmmyes. It’s really kind of ridiculously easy (I mean even I don’t screw it up) and approximately 100000x better than a mix.


Ingredients

    * 1 cup butter
    * 2 cup white sugar
    * 4 eggs
    * 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    * 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    * 1 cup all-purpose flour
    * ½ teaspoon salt
    * ½ teaspoon baking powder

Directions

   1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour square pan.

   2. In a large saucepan, melt 1 cup butter. Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, eggs, and 2 teaspoon vanilla. Beat in 2/3 cup cocoa, 1 cup flour, salt, and baking powder. Spread batter into prepared pan.

   3. Bake in preheated oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Do not overcook.


Then there’s the frosting. The brownies are great without if you just don’t feel like it, but the frosting adds that extra little bit to push them over the edge for me.

The thing with the frosting recipe is that I kind of wind up eyeballing it. If you follow the directions exactly I find it a bit on the oversweet side (but you may want to start there before tweaking, since even really sweet, it combines well with the relatively mild brownie).


Ingredients (frosting)

    * 3 tablespoons butter, softened
    * 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    * 1 tablespoon honey
    * 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    * 1 cup confectioners’ sugar

Then just combine all the ingredients. If it’s too thick, I add a splash of cream to get it the consistency I want. If I’m eyeballing the whole thing, I hold off on the sugar and honey, then start adding them in slowly, tasting as I go. If it gets too sweet, add more cocoa powder.

THEN EAT EVERYTHING BECAUSE SO DELICIOUS.


THE BROWNIES ARE RETURNED

letzgetnekkidd-deactivated20151  asked:

Hey you do great work! I love your nature and landscape shots. I'm just starting my photography adventure. Do you have any advice from someone who loves to take macro and landscape shots? Is there anyone special you go to for prints?

As banal as that may sound, the most important advice I can give you is: get out there and shoot, shoot, shoot! :) Get to know your camera, train your eyes. No theoretical knowledge can ever beat practice and experience.

Then, when you come back and go through your results, analyse why you like certain shots and why you don’t like others. Also try and do that for photos you haven’t taken yourself. Don’t just look at them but find out what exactly you like/dislike about them. And tumblr is a great place for that :)

As for prints… that really depends on what purpose the prints are for (archiving, posters, gallery prints, …) and also on where you live and what you have available there. So I can’t really help you very much on that one unfortunately. I’d just test different options with a few photos and then chose the results I liked most for further prints.

Hope that more or less answered your questions :)
