not the best set of photos i know

anonymous asked:

While referencing real life pictures is the best way to learn poses and the way anatomy is set up, referencing off pictures can help someone A LOT. Sometimes photos/images of real life are difficult to draw. Like for example, a cat paw. One might reference off a real life cat paw but have trouble shaping the lines to actually look like the paw if you catch my drift. I find it easier to reference off both drawings and irl images!

The idea is to learn how stuff works by looking at life; once you’ve studies many cat paws, you’ll know how to manipulate them yourself in any angle/pose/whatever. Reffing off of art is probably quicker tho

I got the second Persona 5 comic anthology book and there are some pretty funny comic strips so I wanted to translate a few (emphasis on few) of my favorites. Here are a couple to start!

(I cut up the comic strips for better readability and I had to use photos for my raws since I don’t have a scanner so I’m sorry they’re pretty ugly lmao.)

“Harry often gets told that he’s too trusting, that he’s gonna get stomped all over one of these days because he gives people more credit than they deserve. But Harry doesn’t think that Mitch would ever stomp all over him, not even a gentle tap of his foot.”

HEADCANON THAT YURI IS INTO PHOTOGRAPHY??? HELLO IM HERE I WAS TAKING PHOTOS YESTERDAY AND DEADASS WAS LIKE "Yuri's into photography and loves to use Otabek as his model"

OH YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW !!

Consider the following:

○Yuri’s grandpa passed down all his old cameras because Yuri really started showing interest in it at around 13 years old.

○ дедушка / dedushka taught him all the basics like finding the best natural lighting and using white backgrounds and focus settings

○ Initially Yuri just takes a lot of pictures of Potya and some different tourist-y type photos around Moscow and St. Petersburg. 

○When he gets an instagram account he uses horrible filters just like everyone else. so many black and white pictures from high angles. So many Velencia selfies. Twenty pictures of Potya as a kitten, easily. 

○ When he becomes friends with Otabek they go to one of those cheesy photo booths at the mall while shopping one day. It becomes a tradition and they get a new photo strip each time Otabek visits him (or vice versa). (Honestly i could write a whole fic about them taking photo booth pictures and it showing the progression of their relationship tbh)

○After they start dating, Yuri is constantly taking pictures of Otabek. Of course when they travel they have to take cool pictures of all the sights but Yuri often finds himself taking candids of Otabek with his hair ruffled by the wind, his sunglasses on, and something like the eiffel tower out of focus in the background. (”I capture what’s important, Beka. Obviously.”)

○The treatment doesn’t stop at home, either. Otabek just looks so cute when he’s curled up in his favorite chair with his glasses on, a book in his lap. Or when it’s 2 AM and he’s sitting at his desk with his giant studio headphones on, working on a mix. Or just when he’s you know, existing. Otabek always looks perfect through the lens. 

○Yuri’s entire memories section on snapchat is just saved snaps of he and Otabek playing around with the filters.

○He never used the old polaroid that grandpa gave him because he couldn’t be bothered to buy the replacement film, until he has Otabek as a subject/model. He’s worth the film. 

○ Polaroids slowly fill the apartment. Clipped to the fridge, in frames, under the glass of the coffee table. Everywhere Yuri can stick them. 

○ One night Otabek is drifting to sleep, Yuri is tracing little patterns onto his back and suddenly stops, telling him not to move. He hears Yuri get his camera and hears the flash go off, then grumbles and rolls over to his side, but there’s a trace of a smile on his lips nonetheless. “You’re obsessed with me, Yura.” he teases, and Yuri just shrugs. “So what if I am? I have a strong eye for these things, Beka.”

Never Say Never 

On the subway, Clarke snaps a Polaroid of him before he can block the lens with his hand: His head is leant back, looking up and probably wishing that the top of the train was made of glass so he could see the star-speckled sky — he looks relaxed, dreamlike, as the soft orange light falls on his face.

She loves this one.

“Don’t you have enough photos of me?” he asks with no real heat. In fact, his voice is marked by a delicacy that makes her heart flutter.

“You know I don’t. I’m going to plaster them on my ceiling.”

(When Clarke’s six years old, Bellamy’s the boy in the tree, her best friend. At eighteen, she’s not sure that she can call him that anymore, and of course that’s when everything crumbles.)

Warnings: food, school, kissing, fluff

A/N: So this is a request! Glad I got one done!!! They wanted lengthy so hopefully this is lengthy enough.

Dates nights with Peter Parker:

  • Every Friday night you’d have the typical movie night
  • One time you’d be watching some movie on Netflix, well at least you were trying to. It was kinda hard to pay attention when Peter was reciting every line by heart
  • “Are you award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o? No? Then shut up.”
  • “A little harsh babe…”
  • “What are you gonna do about it? Break up with me?” you teased with a devilish smirk
  • “No,” he began while slowly getting closer to you, his body pressing against the bowl of popcorn that rested on your lap. “But I will do this!”
  • You screech as he started throwing hand-fulls of popcorn at your face
  • “So much butter! Why must you like your popcorn extra salty, Peter, whyyyy!!!”
  • This led to a full blown food fight, the water bottles that had been on the ground by the couch soon emptied as you both poured their contents on each other’s heads
  • By the end of the night, the movie was long over and you were both collapsed on the ground, spralled out in exhaustion
  • “Aunt May is not gonna be happy,” you cautioned while trying to supress laughter
  • “I think she’ll be too busy laughing at how we look to notice the mess we made,” Peter joked, bringing his hands up to run through his now stiff hair that had popcorn and cookie crums stuck in it

  • Every Saturday was your all-day-date. You’d spend the night on Friday so you could wake up, have breakfast, and decide on what to do that day
  • If Peter had been feeling too tired and beat up from his hero work, you guys would stay in and spend most of the day cuddling, talking, and laughing, taking turns getting up to get meals for the both of you
  • Y/NNNN I’m hungryyyyy
  • “Good for you, Parker,” you quipped.
  • “Could you get us some lunch pleaseeee?” he begged with a childish grin and pout.
  • “Ugh whyyyyy,” you groaned, rolling onto your stomach so your face was pressed into the pillow
  • “I got us breakfast croissants from Starbucks! The least you could do is walk into the kitchen and make us some sandwiches or salads or something!” he insisted, moving to wrap his arms around you and pull you closer to his chest
  • “I have to actually make something?” you whined. “Can’t I just order a pizza?”
  • “I thought the plan was to do that for dinner. It’s not like we can do that twice in one day, can we?”
  • Propping yourself up on your arms and looking directly at him in surprise you said, “You can never have too much pizza, Parker.”
  • He smiled and rested his head in the crevice between your neck and shoulder then responded, “True, true. And hey! I can order from my iPhone so neither of us have to get up and we still get lunch!”
  • “Yay for compromise!” you cheered in a joking manner.
  • “Wow; we’re compromising. That’s so ‘married couple’ of us; huh, Mrs. Parker?”
  • Laughing and pulling him closer you kissed his shoulder before retorting, “Can’t call me that till you put a ring on it, Mr. Parker.”
  • “Oh, trust me, babe, I plan on it,” he assured in a more serious tone.
  • Later there was a knock on the door and the poor pizza guy had to wait ten minutes for you two to decide on who has to get up to answer the door

  • Every Sunday was dedicated to homework and, when you finished all of that, studying. Let’s face it, you two are absolute nerds and even when you’re done with everything and have no tests to study for, Peter will still insist on finding some sort of school work to do.
  • Typically these days were spent with papers covering his bed, desk, and floor; but sometimes, you’d go to the park a few blocks away, sit on a picnic blanket, and do your work there
  • You probably have taken some of the best photos you have of Peter on those Sunday homework-picnics, the sun highlighting his visage as it set, casting the most beautiful light that eliminated any need for a filter
  • The caption on Instagram, on one of your many photos of him, would be ‘I know I post so many pix of him, but I can’t help it. I mean… look at him! #sorrynotsorry #hashtag #PeterHatesHashtagsSoIAlwaysUseThem’

Thank you for the request!!!

Thank you for sharing Pangur and your other kitties with us. They brighten my day whenever I see them, and I hope your blog has been a net positive for you. Please don't ever feel you need to apologize for taking care of yourself. I know it can suck to feel like you're disappointing people, but I admire you for standing up for yourself. I've seen a lot of generous people get burned out from Tumblr fame, and it's always a shame. All the best!

what a lovely message, thank you!

I’ve actually been surprised by how well folk respond to me setting boundaries -  it’s a huge relief that despite this blog’s growth, I can have as much fun posting photos of my dumb pets now as I did back with 200 followers

anonymous asked:

May I ask how you're picking the colors for your gemsonas? Are you creating a color palette directly from a picture of the gem?

Ohh the colouring process is the most fun part of designing gems tbh!!

As for the colours, I pick the brightest, most saturated parts of the gem and generally rank up saturation even more, or change the hue for a tiny bit to match other colours better.

I always try to end up with a very limited and simple palette, as the more colours the design has, the easier it is to make it a complete mess.

Examples for Sonora Sunrise’s colours;

It’s less about picking the exact colours off a photo, and more about knowing which hues will work best together. The actual gem’s colours are more of a really good colour suggestion than a solid reference.

In the end I also play around with contrast settings and colour balance. An overlay colour across the whole design can often makes the colours more familial to each other and give the design a more whole look.

Also a bit more on the procedure I use;
Once the lineart is done I give the gem the first draft design based on the colours of the gem. The first draft usually looks HORRIBLE, but gives me an idea of what colours I’m working with!

Here’s an example;
1st and 2nd draft of Sonora Sunrise’s colours, and the finished product

1st draft is more about contrast than about colour.
Contrast is, in my opinion, the single most important part of a design.

The first draft was mainly used for the idea of a light/dark contrast, while with the 2nd one I was figuring out cold/warm and complementary contrasts.

Finally I ended up with a design that breaks its pieces up nicely with a good colour continuity (orange hair->green face and top->orange middle->green body->orange arms).

Also if anyone’s curious about the colour crash that is Flash;

It’s even more notable with Flash than it is with Sonora that I use actual gem’s colours more as a suggestion than a reference, as little to no shades actually match and Flash’s colours are MUCH more saturated than the colours picked from the photos.

Also for my personal suffering fun, here’s Flash’s first draft palette;

I remember 6 months ago coming home from visiting my best friend at her college and being on the plane as the sun was setting and trying to be silent while crying on the plane because of how much I was hurting from recent life events…I remember praying, almost talking aloud to God in that plane seat, trying to be considerate of the passengers around me and not burst out into sobs (lol), taking photos of the clouds at dusk as we took off and I remember telling myself, “I know good things are coming but why is the process of getting through it so hard,” and…I will never forget that moment…all the moments you thought you wouldn’t get through and you did and here you are, better, wiser, stronger, more resilient, so at peace. I smile at the moment when I think about it and replay it

National Best Friend Day

It’s National BFF Day, (in my timezone anyway) let’s shine some light on the friendships of MLB, shall we?

• Nino got akumatized FOR Adrien. Not for his own reasons. For his best friend!

• Nino confronted the scariest, and one of the most wealthiest men in Paris, for Adrien to have a birthday party.

• Alya has continuously helped Marinette with her love towards Adrien. Always encouraging her.

• Rose helped Juleka believe that she WASN’T invisible to society and unimportant.

• Max worked hard for Kim to confess his love to Chloè. He probably comforted him about it after the he became Dark Cupid.

• Sabrina and Chloè have been best friends for years now.

• Chloè gave Sabrina a brooch as an apology for Sabrina getting akumatized on her behalf. Chloè didn’t want to admit it, but she was happy Sabrina accepted her friend request. Chloè even smirked at the wnd of the “Vanisher” episode.

• A call train was started when Adrien disappeared. The whole neighborhood searched for him.

• When Adrien was found, Nino ran up to him, hugged him, and screamed “Brother!”

• Kim and Alix have A LOT of bets, and dares they do to each other.

• Natalie got together a Christmas Dinner for Adrien.

• Natalie has said something along the line: “I know it’s hard for you, Adrien. But it is also hard for your father.” Natalie saw the breakdown of Gabriel after Mama A’s disappearance… she probably had to comfort the man.

• Kim gave Marinette BUNNY EARS in a group class photo!

• Chloè and Adrien were CHILDHOOD FRIENDS!

• Adrien setting Nino up on a date!

• Alya helping Marinette on a date!

Finally the best one of all…

• THE CLASS TAKING A PICTURE WITH JULEKA IN THE CENTER TO MAKE HER FEEL WANTED AND VALUABLE!

Synopsis: Meeting like this must be faith or was it just a coincident?




Waiting in line for Starbucks at an airport really sucks, especially when it’s still really early. You were listening to Mama from bts, because that song really wakes you up in a good way, let’s admit that Hoseok rapping or singing it just made you feel happy. “How can I help you?”

“Can I have a large Caramel Macchiato?” you even sounded sleepy. “What’s your name?” You told her your name and started to move to the side, whilst looking at your phone when you suddenly bumped into someone. You were already mumbling an apology when the person cursed in Korean at you. You quickly looked up because you recognized the voice and as your eyes traveled up, you knew without a doubt who you just bumped into and you felt the heat in your cheeks because you also knew what kind of for shirt you were wearing.

He probably didn’t think you could understand him as you didn’t look Korean but you were part Korean as your father was Korean, you just looked like your mother who was European, the only thing you had from your dad were his eyes and full lips but other than that I looked European. “Ya can’t you look out,” he said this in English and you were quite surprised by this. “I’m really sorry.” His eyes fell on your shirt, which annoyed him even more and that’s when I remembered the rules of following them at the airport and that’s when your head became even redder. He didn’t even hesitate to call his manager but your name was being called as your drink was ready, so you quickly grabbed the drink and wanted to leave but his manager grabbed your arm and made you stop.

“Where are you going?”

“I um, I’m going to my gate number, why?”

“Can I see your phone for a second?” You stared at him completely dumbfounded because how in the world could you have made pictures as you literally just saw Suga? “Sorry but no, I haven’t done anything.” You pulled your arm out of his grip and started to walk off when their bodyguard blocked your way and now you were beginning to feel pissed of, you weren’t a morning person and you didn’t had your coffee yet so this was really too much.

“Ya, please move!” you were even sounding annoyed, which they noticed as they shared glances as they approached you. “This is ridiculous.” You unlocked your phone and handed it over and there were pictures of Suga and the others on it but none of them were private pictures and as they realized that they were wrong they acted all anxious. “Can I have my phone back?” you stretched out your hand and waited whilst tapping your feet on the ground, they quickly handed you back your phone, whilst apologizing but you just waved it off and walked away not caring. You were praying that they wouldn’t be in the same plane but of course, you had no luck in this department.

“That the girl I was talking about.” You heard him talking about you, so you adjusted the volume so you wouldn’t hear them and even closed your eyes. You really needed to relax before getting on this plane, as you were afraid of flying since you were little, this was going to be hell and with the commotion from earlier, you were really on edge. You were finally feeling a bit better when you felt a tap on your leg, which made you open your eyes immediately and you were staring straight into Suga’s eyes, which startled you, to say the least. He didn’t hesitate to pull out your earbuds, which shocked you even more because this felt a bit intimate. “I’m sorry to disturb you but I wanted to apologize for earlier.” You just looked at him as if he was some weirdo and he immediately looked at Rapmonster for help but I was just a bit shocked to see him up close and as Rapmonster started to apologize you stopped him.

“It’s okay.” You told them in Korean, which shocked them but you thought it was funny because they had definitely been talking about you. “Wait you can speak Korean?” you nodded with a small smile and if he could get redder he would. “I can, I’m half Korean.” You got up and bowed slightly before walking off.

“Wait, did you hear everything we said?” you shook your head. “Ani, I turned up the volume of my music, as you were obviously talking about me and well I didn’t want to hear it.” Rapmonster was still holding your arm and it became a bit awkward and you wanted to pull your arm away when Suga suddenly joined you again. “I’m sorry, we shouldn’t have done that.” You shrugged “I’m serious, it’s just that we have sasaengs who follow us around at the airport and we are a bit sick of it actually.” That was understandable, the only problem you had with this was that it had been rude to assume that I was one of those sasaengs, only because I wore a bts shirt.

“So you thought I was one based on my shirt?” he nodded and he genuinely looked sorry for the way he behaved towards you and you couldn’t help but let it go because well it is Suga, who wouldn’t forgive him.

“It’s okay, I understand.” you smiled at him and walked off again, as you still had to go to the toilet. “Wait a minute.” you turned around now a bit annoyed because you really needed to go to the toilet and this was not helping. “What?”

“What’s your name?”

“I’m Y/N, can I please go now?” he nodded and you almost ran to the toilet. You quickly fixed your hair before getting back, luckily it was time to board the plane, which meant you wouldn’t see them, as you were sitting in economy, it was not the most comfortable way to travel but who cares? You were going to work anyway, as you were a photographer and a web designer. You got out your glasses and as you were working you never thought about those handsome bts guys, that is what you told yourself because after three hours you still hadn’t done any work but you just worked on photoshopping pictures of the guys into headers, it was quite funny because after three hours you already had ten headers ready. “Excuse me?” one of the stewards was standing next to my seat with something in her hand.

“Ye?”

“I had to bring this to you, I mean your name is Y/n, right?” you nodded and she quickly handed it over, it was a bottle of perfume and it was an expensive one, to say the least. “Did those guys gave this to you?” She nodded “They told me it was really important to give to you.” This made you feel bad because it probably meant they didn’t like the way I smelled, which was ridiculous as you had a shower this morning and even put on your own Calvin Klein perfume. You actually felt offended by this and it made you angry, to say the least.

“Please give it back to them, I don’t need this perfume.” you handed it back, which you sort of regretted the minute she walked away with the bottle because it really was an expensive brand. The rest of the flight you were busy as you finally could concentrate again as the steward didn’t return anymore, except when it was time for something to eat, you even dozed off which was weird because you could never sleep on a plane but today you couldn’t stay awake and you only woke up because we were going to land. You were looking forward to seeing your dad again, it was a shame that my parents were divorced but it was also a good excuse to travel to Seoul and as you were going to live with him, it was becoming better and better because he was one of the owners of Jyp entertainment. He probably didn’t have a lot of time but at least he was going to pick me up.

You didn’t see the guys when you walked into the airport, which was for the best. You collected your suitcase and quickly walked to the arrival hall and there he stood your dad, holding up a sign as if you didn’t recognize him. You ran towards him and threw yourself in his embrace. “Appa, I missed you.” he kissed the top of your head before letting you go, the woman next to him was smiling politely, this must be his new wife and my stepmother. You quickly bowed to her whilst saying hello.

“Did you have a pleasant flight?”

“Ye, I even slept for awhile.”

“Really?! You must’ve been tired then.” You nodded and walked beside them to the car, which was a black BMW. “Appa, can we have some meat today?”

“Ah I’m sorry but I have meetings but I will make time for you soon.” you nodded feeling a bit disappointed but then again he was a CEO. “Arraso, I have to prepare for work anyway.”

“Where are you working?”

“Vlive and Viki, I’m making subs and I’m also set for a photo shoot tomorrow.”

“A Photo Shoot, where?” You told him and he smiled “So you’re the photographer, I didn’t know we had hired you. “Ah that’s because I don’t use my Korean name.” he nodded but didn’t say a thing about it, when we arrived home he dropped me and my stepmother and drove off. “I will show you your room.” This house was big and as you walked through you were looking at every detail and as she opened your door, you were shocked when you saw that you had the best view ever, You were looking out over Seoul, this would be beautiful at night.

“You have your own bathroom and you can go everywhere. Your dad told me to give you this.” she handed me a platinum card and you just stared at it. “Really?” she nodded and left you alone, this was going to amazing but still you had to be careful with that card. As it was still daytime you immediately went out to explore with your camera around your neck.

After a few hours you really needed to have a drink and as you were looking in your bag, you found a perfume bottle at the bottom. You looked at it closely and was stunned when you recognized the bottle, it was the bottle from the airplane, they actually had put it in my bag, how intrusive but it was kind of sweet as well, you were still looking at your phone when you bumped into someone again. “Second time, you didn’t pay attention.” you looked up and was embarrassed to see you again bumped into Suga.

“Ah I’m sorry.” you held up your phone as an excuse, which made him smile this time instead of annoyed. “It’s fine, you’re not following me by any chance?”

“Ani, really I didn’t, I was just walking around and somehow ended up here.”

“Okay, let’s get something to drink then.” he grabbed your hand and pulled you to the counter. “Do you want a Caramel Macchiato?” he remembered your drink, how weird but you nodded anyway and he quickly put his order in and they told us to sit down, which we did, this was really something from a dream, how was it possible that we met again in a big city like this? You weren’t really superstitious but it was just weird. “Are you on a holiday?”

“Sorry what?” you had been staring at him and hadn’t heard a thing as you were completely smitten with the guy in front of you. He really looked good today, he was wearing a white cap and glasses, which you didn;t see often but when you did see it, it made you melt because it looked so damn good.

“Are you on a holiday?”

“Ani, I just moved in with my dad.”

“Really, so your father is Korean?” you nodded and was wondering if he had listened when you told Rapmonster about it. “Ye my dad is Korean and my mother European, I only have the shape eyes and full lips from my dad, that’s why I don’t really look Asian.” You quickly explained when his eyes suddenly fell on the camera around your neck.

“Can I see your pictures?” he pointed at your camera and you quickly handed it over and the next five minutes he was admiring the pictures and due to the noises he made, he really liked them.

“Are you a photographer?”

“Ye, I am, so do you really write, produce and compose your own songs?” not wanting to talk about yourself the whole time, this seemed like a safe topic. “Ye, I do, didn’t you hear my mixtape?”

“I did and loved it.” you smiled and sipped your coffee when he received a call, which probably meant they needed him. “I’ve got to go, it was nice seeing you again.” he bowed slightly but before he walked out of the cafe he quickly turned around and walked back. “Not to be rude but how old are you?”

“I’m twenty-three.” he smiled at that and left with a wave and when he walked out you realized that we didn’t exchange any details like a phone number. That bummed you out but maybe it was for the best because there was no way he would call me anyway.

The next morning you had to hurry as you had the photoshoot of Got7 on the agenda and you were already called for another photoshoot but this time it was another company, this were the perks of being a freelancer, you weren’t restricted to certain companies. You drove to the place and wasn’t surprised to see that there were people already and the minute you walked into the building they stopped. “Hello, I’m Y/N and I will be taking the pictures.” you bowed and got the same respect back and you were even called sunbaenim by the younger ones, it was a weird experience but one that you had to get used to fast.

Not much later the guys walked onto the set and as you introduced yourself, they immediately knew who I was. They started to treat you formally and there was nothing more that I hated and it was just stupid as I was my own person. After a few minutes of them acting all stiff around you, you stopped the photoshoot. “Guys this won’t work, I need you to be yourself, just forget that I’m the daughter of your company’s CEO. I’m my own person and I can’t do a photoshoot if you’re all nervous like this.

“Ya, how can you ask this of us, what if we do something wrong and you report it?”

“Why would I do that, what do I gain by betraying you? So please don’t be ridiculous and just do your job.” after that it went a lot better and after a full day of shooting you were glad that it was over. You loved Got7 but it was just awkward and it was definitely not a group you wanted to shoot again, not as long as my dad was their CEO.

The following week you had your next photo shoot, which was also for an album jacket but you didn’t know for which group this was, the only thing you knew was that you were sent to the beach. The minute you got out of the car you were shocked to feel the cold and the guys who were in makeup. There was no way that this could be happening right? “Ah Y/N you’re here?” you nodded at the manager who took you to meet the rest of staff, who were smiling and you had to admit that this felt more like a family. “So what’s the concept of today?” the manager quickly explained what they wanted and you felt pity with the guys because they were actually wearing shorts in this cold weather.

“Y/N?” you turned and locked eyes with Suga, who was smiling and it took your breath away because even though you liked them a lot without makeup, this definitely was something different and it made my heart beat faster for some reason. “Yoongi,” you said back which made him chuckle.

“We keep meeting each other.”

“It seems that way doesn’t it.” you smiled back at him and felt your heart flutter a bit. He grabbed your hand and patted it. “Please shoot the pictures fast.” you couldn’t help but snort at this because you knew why he wanted me to hurry up and who could blame him. “I will try my best.” he still had your hand in his and that’s when you noticed the little shocks that went through your body and they felt warm and definitely not unpleasant, he must’ve felt it to because his glance became a bit more intense and he quickly let go of your hand, which gave the other members the chance to say hi and I promised them to be quick so they could get warm again. The next few hours flew by and we finally were done with the first set of pictures, they were all very hands on which was always good because if they didn’t like the pictures you had to do them again but luckily for me they didn’t found bad ones.

The next day we were shooting a different version but this time it was inside, which was a lot better than yesterday. The guys seemed more energetic than yesterday, probably because it wasn’t really cold in here. “So we meet again.” you couldn’t help but chuckle at his cuteness. “It seems so, are you perhaps stalking me.” you decided to go along with this, two can play this game. He chuckled again but this time his members heard it as well and they were surprised, to say the least as they immediately started to mumble amongst themselves, as if you couldn’t hear them.

“Alright let’s do this.” and the next few hours we were shooting and the last few minutes they were allowed to act crazy with the confetti and it got me really good pictures, which would make the job really easy when you had to work on them, they did ask you to whitewash the pictures but you immediately told them no because it was ridiculous to whitewash people, they looked good as they were now. You left before the guys did because you had to be on time for dinner so you quickly said goodbye and got at the restaurant just in time, which was a miracle as you had to change into a nice dress but you were on time but stopped the minute you saw the two little kids sitting at the table. You had lived with your dad for two weeks but this was the first time you had seen these kids.

Your dad saw the bewildered look on your face and quickly got up. “Y/N, these are your dongsaengs,” he told me their names but you just couldn’t hear it, as you were counting back the years your parents were divorced and it didn’t add up with their age. “How old are they?” he told me their age and that’s when you discovered the truth behind the divorce, he had been cheating on your mom. “I have to go, I just forgot I had to do some more work, I’m sorry.” you turned around and ran out of the restaurant, not paying attention to where you were going but ended up at the Han river which looked amazing in the dark, with all the lights, you were lost in thoughts whilst looking at the view when someone put a coat around your shoulders.

“How does this keep happening?” he asked teasingly and you smiled at this because now it really seemed ridiculous. You didn’t really look at him this time and he immediately noticed your mood. “Did something happen?”

“Ye but I don’t want to bother you.”

“Ah don’t be like that, just tell me.”

“My dad cheated on my mom and now he has two new children.” you summed it up real quick because it was already costing you a lot of effort to not cry. “Really? I’m so sorry.” he put his arm around your shoulder and pulled you into his side, this startled you because you never thought he was one for skinship but here he was comforting you.

“Why are you doing this?” he instantly knew what I was talking about but instead of letting me go he turned me around so that I was facing him and if you hadn’t fallen for him yet, then you would right this moment because he was looking at you as if you were the only one on the planet. “I just like you.” he didn’t hesitate at all and if you thought he was joking, his next move dissolved all of that, as he pulled you against his body and hugged you tightly. “It’s okay to cry.” it took some time but when you were finally over the shock of him confessing, you hugged him back but you never cried about your cheating dad because how could you when there was someone like Yoongi holding you. He eventually let you go, which gave you the opportunity to catch your breath “Why do you like me? you don’t even know me.” you had to know his reason because yes we had spoken a few times after you finally exchanged numbers and yes the times we coincidentally met, was also weird but it was too short to really like someone.

“I don’t know, I just can’t get you out of my head after that first time we met and now we keep meeting each other coincidentally, it just has to mean something don’t you think.” Yoongi wasn’t someone who would just say something so you did believe him when he told you he liked you but it just seemed unreal, it was more like a dream because you liked him as well but it was never going to work, he must see that right? “I have to go.” you got up and handed him his coat. “Thank you for tonight, I really needed someone to talk to.” you bowed and ran away. He yelled your name but you didn’t look back once.

When you returned back home your dad was waiting for you and when you walked in, he got on his knees to apologize, this broke your heart and suddenly you felt guilty for making him do this. “Appa please get up, it’s okay.” You helped him get up and hugged him. “I just wished you told me before, I would have loved to meet them when they were born instead of meeting him when they’re almost ten.” he nodded and apologized again but it just made you feel sad as you didn’t want him to be upset. “I’m going to bed okay?”

“You really don’t want to talk about this?” You shook your head and smiled at him but he knew that you were hurt because if you couldn’t do something then is was hiding your feelings, you were an open book for people that were close to you. You just had to endure, whilst looking for your own place and that shouldn’t be that difficult as you had enough money for a luxurious apartment, as long as the view was good it really didn’t matter. This is how you spend most of your days looking for a house and working on the photo’s you took, you did this with your own team, which was nice for a change. You had a shorter deadline for BTS’s pictures, which was fine as the pictures looked amazing and eventually you could send them to their company for evaluation, not long after they paid you a royal amount and there was more good news as you had finally found an apartment, the funny thing was that it was an apartment building which held a lot of famous people, you had already bumped into Park Bo Gum, Ji Soo, and others, so that was a fun thing.

You hadn’t spoken to Yoongi after that night but then again bts was busy with their comeback, so they’re probably shacked up in their dance studio. Your dad was sad that you would be leaving but he understood and you actually had met the twins and they were lovely and polite, they even called me Unni, which was weird at first but now you’re used to it.

“You know, I really felt hurt when you ran away like that.” I turned with a box in my hands and stared at an exhausting looking Yoongi, he really looked like he could fall asleep every second. “I’m really sorry, I shouldn’t have done that.” you smiled at him which soften his face a bit but you could tell he was frustrated. “I have never chased after a girl but for some reason, I’m still drawn to you even though it has been weeks.” you felt the blush on your cheeks and you knew he had seen it as well. “I’m sorry but I just had something going on and I really couldn’t think straight and it just doesn’t make sense that you like me.”

“Why doesn’t it make sense? I mean you are a beautiful woman and you’re talented as well, who wouldn;t like that?”

“Don’t you want someone who is more like you?”

“Why aren’t you like me? You are calm and smart,  you’re very talented and beautiful and on top of that you are a warm person who cares about others, so please tell me what’s not to like?” This was why Yoongi has always been your favorite because he told you how he saw it, without editing stuff.  “You’ve got a point.” you put down the box because it was heavy. “Look I really need to brings these boxes to my apartment but if you have time later today?” he shook his head “I don’t really have time, we have to practice for our tour but I will text you a time and place.” He was dismissing me and you just had to accept it that we maybe wouldn’t see each other for awhile.

“Arraso, please be careful don’t overdo things,” you yelled after him and he just stuck up his thumb. He kept his promise as he texted every night but because you were always asleep when he texted it was never a long conversation, he just wanted to know what I was doing and he told you not to ask the same thing in return because he was going through practice hell, which made you laugh of course. The day of their comeback was coming up and you were actually looking forward to it and the day they finally performed you got the text message, telling you to meet him at the hand river at 11 pm.

You never really stuck too much time into dressing but this time you did. You kept it casual with skinny jeans and a light blue sweater and your puma’s. Your makeup was also light, you only put on a bit of lipstick and mascara and brushed your hair before stepping out in your black coat because damn it was cold. When you arrived you already saw him sitting on the stairs waiting for you, he had brought something with him and it made you curious enough to fasten your pace. “Have you been waiting long?” he looked up and I was surprised to see him wearing glasses again.

“Are you okay?”

“Of course I’m okay.”

“Are you sure, I mean if you need to get some rest then you should do that.”

“Ani, you know we are leaving tomorrow right?” you nodded because how could you forget it. “I know, that’s why I was asking.” you looked at the tiny bag that was next to him and he followed your gaze and smiled mischievously. He patted on the ground next to him and you quickly took a seat not caring about the fact that you were almost on his lap. “This is for you.” he gave me the bag and you quickly took a look inside and you were surprised when you saw that it was a plane ticket and a contract.

“What’s this?”

“That’s a plane ticket.” you nodded annoyed because you already knew that but when you wanted to say something, he took the ticket away from you together with the contract. “We want you to come with us as our official photographer but.”

“Of course there is always a catch, well tell me, what is it?” you were again standing and were tapping your feet impatiently, this made him smile and as he got up the smirk returned. “You have to call me Oppa from now on.” you raised your eyebrow because why would I do that?

“Why?”

“Because you like me just as much as I like you, you’re just afraid.”

“Ya yoongi.”

“Did you forget that I’m older than you?” You shook your head embarrassed but looked up when he chuckled. “Look I don’t want to force you but we both know that it’s useless to resist this as it was faith for us to meet.” you couldn’t help but chuckle at this cheesiness, he had spent too much time with Jin that was for sure.

“Are you really sure?”

“I have never been so sure of anything in my life.” You studied his face and when you didn’t see any hesitation, you decided to mess with him just to tease him a bit more. “I don’t think it’s a good idea, have a safe flight.” you quickly took off, just to see what he would do, when he suddenly grabbed your arm and turned you around and before you could protest our laugh he had pressed his lips against yours and you were mentally kicking yourself for running away that one time because if you had known that he could kiss like this than you wouldn’t have felt so insecure. He started carefully but when you didn’t pull away he deepened the kiss and as he pulled you closer you couldn’t help but moan against his lips, which made him smile. He felt warm and it was like coming home after a long journey, the sparks were everywhere and your knees became weak but Yoongi was holding you so you weren’t afraid to fall. He never let go of you not even when you broke apart and you knew from that day he would do everything he could to protect me and when I looked into my hand I discovered the ticket and contract, he had put the bag in my hand whilst kissing me, which was pretty smooth. We were still standing really closer to each other and he was exploring your face and as he reached your swollen lips his smile returned as he locked eyes with you.

“So today is our first day, right?”

His Muse

Mikey x reader

You and Mikey loved the city at night, especially the parts of the city that were farther away from downtown. The small streets and parts of the city other people never saw except for the true locals. These streets were quiet, dark…but peaceful. Small, cozy businesses were tucked away in these streets and in some parts the only lights you could see were the soft glows of the neon signs that hung on the windows of businesses and little cafes. Streets like these, especially at 3:45 in the morning, had literally no one in sight. These were the small parts of New York City that actually did sleep.

When you could, you two would actually walk here together on the streets, taking a break from the rooftops. You and Mikey knew these streets well enough so you knew no one would see him. The two of you were walking hand in hand on this particular street and you both saw this purple neon sign. You saw yourself in the reflection and smiled.

“Babe, go stand in front of that sign.” said Mikey as he got out his cell phone. You giggled and walked towards the sign. You were used to this by now, Mikey taking pictures of you. The more you got to know him, the more you realized how much of an artistic guy he was. While at the lair, you would often find him drawing or painting. (Splinter didn’t like it when he did graffiti in the lair so he found him some art supplies.) He only turned into a skilled photographer when he was with you, his lovely muse. You found out not long after you two started to date that he loved taking pictures of dark, but lit up places. He loved neon and loved how the colors blended perfectly into the darkness and how it gently colored your skin.

“So what do you want me to do?” you asked him. He just shrugged.

“Just do whatever babe.” he said with a little wink. You giggled and decided to turn around and look at your reflection. You were wearing your favorite outfit complete with your favorite black hat. Mikey loved that outfit on you, that’s why you wore it. He took a few photos with his phone then told you when he was done. He flipped through the several photos of you to pick out the best one. “Baaabe you’re looking gooodd..” he said to you but kept his eyes on the pictures. You laughed and rubbed his arm, also looking at them.

“Oh! That one! I like that one! Can you send it to me?” you asked when you and Mikey finally picked out the best one.

“Hell yeah baby!” he pressed a couple of buttons on his phone and the picture was sent to you. Your phone dinged, letting you know you got it. Mikey looked at it for a moment before setting it as his lockscreen. “I think this is my favorite picture of you babe.” he said softly and looked at you. You smiled at him and gently kissed his cheek.

“Only because you’re an amazing photographer.” you complimented him. You saw him blush and shift a little.

“Well you inspire me to be.” he put his hands on your hips and looked into your eyes. He saw reflections of the beautiful neon signs in her eyes and leaned down to kiss her. His muse.

Birthday Shenanigans

Ignis Scientia X Reader

A/N: just because it’s this precious bean’s birthday today, I thought I would make something kinda cute for all of you!!! So I hope you enjoy! Also please understand that this is most definitely in a different universe, one where everyone is happy and no one is hurt or dead. :)

Q. What is Yashamaru’s Q&A?

A. Since you just started your job and you’re a new A&R who doesn’t even know the difference between your right and left, this is a segment where I, Yashamaru Sakutaro, will explain fundamental knowledge of this game ♪

Be sure to keep your eyes focused here until the end. Okay?

Q. I want to know how the game flows.

A. First, I’ll roughly explain how the game works.

This game is a repetition of “Quest” > “Train” > “Form Units”.

In Quest, you will clear “Story”, “Live”, “Office”, “A&R Activity” and attain Training Items. If you have Training Items, you can increase the ability of member’s photos in the Idol Train menu.

Form a unit with the photos you’re interested in and challenge high difficulty jobs! Keep continuing like this  ♪

Q. I want to know about Quest.

A. Quest is where you do your jobs as an A&R.

The options are Main Quest and Daily Quest, both have tasks you need to do one by one and you continue down them. The difference is that in Main Quest, you can read a “Story”.

Q. What is Main Quest?

A. The basic quest. Here, you can enjoy “Live”, “Office”, “A&R Activity” and also “Story”. As B-PRO’s A&R, you’ll overlook the members’ growth.

Since you’re a new A&R, it’d be good to continue on the Main Quest first. Along the way, when you can’t continue anymore, you can think to Train or Form Units.

Q. What is Daily Quest?

A. Quests limited to each day. Depending on the day of week, the variety of Training Items you can obtain will change. It’s good to try on the days that have items you want.

Once you obtain a lot of Items from the Quest, you can finally Train!

Q. I want to know more about how to Train.

A. First, I’ll tell you something important. Their ability lies within which photo it is. In other words, they may be the same person, but they exist separately if the photo is different. This is important, so be sure to remember it ♪

There are 2 ways to train a photo. The first is Idol Train, where you can bring out their hidden abilities. The other is Quest’s “Live” and “Office”, where you can increase their affection.

Q. What is Idol Train?

A. Every photo has hidden abilities. In the Idol Train menu, you can see what kinds of abilities they have on their tree. Those abilities are unlocked from nodes to become masters.

I will explain the 4 types of nodes here. It’s a little difficult, so pay close attention.

1. “Ability” Node. The majority of the tree. When you unlock it, the ability stats will increase, and you can progress through Quest easier. You’ll also get higher scores during Live.

2. “Skill” Node. When you unlock it, that photo will gain a skill. Skills that acquire more points make strong teams!

3. “Awaken” Node. When you unlock it, the photo’s visual will change and the abilities will increase. ♪ However, there are photos that can’t be awakened, so be careful.

4. “Story” Node. When you unlock it, you can read an exclusive story. You have to check them out ♪

Q. What is affection?

A. They are points that display how friendly they are to you. Doing “Live” and “Office” will increase it a little bit. When you increase affection, the stat bonuses also increase. It’s important to forge good bonds with them in order to have the best performance!

Q. I want to know what kinds of units to form.

A. Form a unit with your favorite photos! It’s not wrong, but don’t make a unit for the purpose of easily continuing through the story. I’ll teach you the tricks to forming units.

Q. What is the trick to forming units?

A. Photos have special stage types such as “Appeal”, “Vocal, “Dance”. Also, Lives have a stage type set as well. That’s why, if you make a full unit of the same type for the Live’s type, you’ll earn a lot of points ♪

However, in Quest there’s “Live” and also “Office”, where I, Atsushi-san, and Shuuji-kun will test your abilities as an A&R. It’s useful to use units that have a mix of all 3 types. If you do that, you’ll be able to answer questions without worry ♪

You can prepare units of “Appeal”, “Vocal”, and “Dance” for “Live”. It’s ideal to prepare units with mixed types for “Office”. ♪

You’ll be fine if you prepare beforehand! Is what I want to say, but there’s one more important thing. That’s a “Skill”!

Q. What is a skill?

A. I mentioned it during Idol Train, but “Skill” is an ability that a photo has hidden. Depending on the photo, the type of “Skill” they can learn is different, and there are different effects.

For example, photos that have an Appeal ability goes up skill do well in Lives that have the same type.

Do you understand everything up until now?

If you continue doing “Quest” > “Train” > “Form Units”, you’ll become an A&R ♪

Q. What’s the goal for a high level A&R?

A. Wow, how ambitious you are, well done! ♪

Since you’re so hard working, I’ll teach you a secret! You definitely want to aim for Idol Rank!

Q. What is Idol Rank?

A. Idol Rank is attached to a photo and indicates their level as an idol. If you collect the same photo you already have, you can use a photo as a base and increase their Idol Rank.

Q. Is there a merit to increasing Idol Rank?

A. Have you seen that there are locked nodes that require Idol Rank in the Idol Train menu? When you increase Idol Rank and unlock these nods, you can unlock the nodes from those as well. “Special Idol Rank” = “Bloom as an Idol” and their ability will E-X-P-L-O-D-E ♪ The nodes after unlocking are stronger than other nodes, so you have to increase their rank!

If you’re aiming to become a high level A&R, then aim for Idol Rank. I’m looking forward to seeing how you progress as an A&R. ♪

4. Cover Girls

Being on the cover of a magazine is a big accomplishment for a model. After all, who could forget Eugena’s Playboy cover?

Or McKey’s cover shoot for Vogue Knitting?

That’s why the ANTM girls get genuinely excited when they learn that they’ll be shooting a cover for Paper Magazine. “Only a superstar gets the cover of Paper,” Drew tells us. (Rita’s been on the cover twice, how hard it can be?)

Drew means what he says about superstars, though. And if you’re wondering, “The Top Model contestants aren’t superstars, so how come they get to be on the cover?” that’s because they actually won’t.

Drew, acting as if he hasn’t just got the girls’ hopes up, clarifies that for “the winner of America’s Next Top Model, this cover will be published and viewed by the world on PaperMag.com.”

The disappointment is pretty plain to see on the contestants’ faces and I can’t believe the editors don’t edit around it like they normally would.

That ain’t a cover, Drew. Call me old-fashioned, but a cover has to, well, COVER something. Otherwise it’s just another photo on a website.

It may be on the “world wide web,” but it’s not as if the world visits PaperMag.com. Unless there’s some new Kim Kardashian ass shots on their way, more people will definitely see these photos on this tv show than they will at that website.

Speaking of disappointments, Mickey Boardman is back to “help” out.

Still not a cover, Mickey! Mickey’s like the gay best friend you never wanted but keeps showing up anyway. In obscenely sparkly shirts, no less.

Courtney swears she’s going to do great at this shoot because beauty shots are her forté. Cody isn’t so convinced, though.

While the finished product is definitely intriguing, the exaggerated cheek indentations, strong eyebrows, and pouted lips read kinda Zoolander to me:  

CoryAnne’s “cover” gets a similar movie reference when Drew compares it to a Tim Burton character. There is something super Helena Bonham Carter about her here.

Drew also think she looks old. “Elderly” is a little cruel, but to be honest, when I look at CoryAnne, I tend to see 30 rather than 19.

Fortunately for CoryAnne, the other judges love her shot because they think she’s finally giving some “attitude,” which is the one thing that’s been missing from her modeling.

Hold up. The judges think CoryAnne doesn’t have enough attitude? They clearly need to see some footage from the house. Remember how she started the episode complaining that India is dull?

Oh, honey. If I had my window open during that scene, I bet I could have heard America collectively laughing at her for that. CoryAnne’s so boring that I had to take a nap just thinking about her.

Speaking of India, she wears a giant Koosh ball and is stunning per usual. Looking at the shot, though, before Law can even mention it, I said to myself, “Whoa, she really looks like Gigi Hadid there.”

Ashley doesn’t think that’s a problem because India can “make this work for [her.]” I’m not entirely sure how… unless India’s looking to get into the celebrity impersonation game. Like, she could definitely get paid five figures to shoot porn in a darkened room that would later get labeled “Gigi Hadid Leaked Sex Tape.”

Rita also isn’t too concerned about India’s Gigi-ness, explaining that when she started getting famous, everyone compared her look to other celebrities. That, or they were just so unfamiliar with Rita that they started guessing vaguely famous people’s names that they’ve heard mentioned before in the hopes that they might accidentally guess right.

No one has more trouble at the shoot than Tash. She wants to use her cover to “save the children.”

This results in a lot of awkward hand posing, which Drew repeatedly discourages her from doing to no avail.

He reminds her that they just want her to be herself, but that’s a difficult instruction for someone who doesn’t think of herself as a “herself” but as a twin.

Tash’s photo is clearly the worst. Law is the only judge to attempt to compliment the photo and he totally bungles it up in a way that would seem pretty damn racist if it weren’t coming from a fellow black person.

Strike that, I still think it’s racist. 

Moving on, Ashley says one of her challenges in the modeling industry was learning to restrain her poses and just be natural.

Ah, so THAT’S why Rita was asked to be on the panel. She may not be a model, but she sure knows how to stand there.

You know who else is good at doing nothing? This week’s best photo winner Cody. She just goes on set, looks straight into the camera, and the judges love it. I mean, it’s no National Geographic cover, but I suppose Paper Magazine would be honored to put it on its cover website.
