time lapses/jumps v continuity errors

it’s come to my attention that some of y’all tend to confuse one for the other,,, which saddens me bc skam is literally all about time lapses/jumps; it’s one of the things that makes it!!! so special!!

the time jumps in skam are meant to show you exactly that – a time jump from one cut to another. it’s a very, very small cut that could mask as a continuity error, but taken in the context it’s actually presented to us (a time jump) it has a huge impact on the scene if you keep an eye out for one

thank you @stardefiant for being a bae and helping catch some of these

anyway ahem

an example of an actual continuity error:

even’s arm in this shot is obviously around emma

but when the shot pans out, even’s arm is back at his side:

we know this is a continuity error because this scene is dialogue-heavy and meant to transition smoothly. no time has actually lapsed between even’s greeting and emma’s excited greeting in return, so there is no reason why his arm shouldn’t have stayed around emma. silly skam editors. 

now, here’s a (very obvious) example of a time jump:

Melly I read that Zayn in a golf cart gif set in his accent and now I would like you to transcribe the whole scene in Zaynglish please. As a matter of fact, is there a way you can go into every fanfic ever and overwrite every Zayn speech and dialogue in Zaynglish? Thanks, you're the best!

Why I love Sakamaki Ayato so much.

Today is my favorite Sakamaki’s birthday, Ayato!!! He was the first Sakamaki introduced to us in the anime, and I’m still deeply in love with him and all of his character traits. I just love everything about him, from his vibrant Vibora eyes to his seiyuu, Midorikawa Hikaru.

STORY TIME ABOUT WHY I LOVE AYATO:

I think the reason why I love Ayato so much is because I can somewhat relate to him. I was the firstborn in my family too, and I was always pushed to be the smartest in school and the perfect daughter for my family. So I completely understand how difficult it is to be the best when you’re in a competition against your own family members (in Ayato’s case, his half-brothers and in my case, my cousins) and the unwanted pressure that entails with the ridiculous journey of trying to be perfect so that people will recognize you for being so great. My parents weren’t like Karlheinz and Cordelia, but I won’t deny the fact that I sometimes cried myself to sleep when I didn’t do well in school or when I got yelled at by my dad for not understanding an algebraic math problem. Of course, as time went by, I came to hate studying like Young!Ayato too, and I wanted to do other things like dance because for once, I didn’t have to think. But my parents persisted and pushed me to be the best in both, and this unfortunately gave me an egotistic superiority complex as well as an inferiority complex as I grew up and went on to high school. It was BAD, guys. I did not take “no” as an answer and I had an awful habit of dismissing people easily. I would do the complete opposite just to show them that I was great enough to do it because how dare they try to deny me, much like how Ayato questions people when they deny him.

When I saw Ayato wondering if he was good enough to be the Vampire King in the recently released Lost Eden game, I cried tears of anguish for him. I felt the same pain and sorrow and uneasiness that Ayato showed because there were times where I doubted myself and my abilities in my career path and choices. Even now, I sometimes struggle with the idea of me wanting to become a corporate lawyer when things don’t work my way or when I see that I’m competing against other college kids in the U.S. So we both share an insecurity of getting the repetitive feeling of “not being good enough” for the things that we want or are supposed to be. We both want to give up and just let go of our issues, but I think we are both stubborn enough to want to stay in the game too. I haven’t read the entire translation for Ayato’s LE route, but I hope he finds some closure and peace for himself. I think we both mentally and emotionally need a break from all the crap we have to deal with in life sometimes.

Nevertheless, I wish Ayato an EXTREMELY happy birthday today because he deserves all the happiness in the world. I hope he will learn from his past trials, and I hope he will grow and become a great Vampire King respected by the rest of the clans in the demon world. I hope he makes his family proud because he’s always been told that he needs to be the best and I want him to feel like he genuinely is one of the best out there. He’s always been my favorite character because of his complexities, so I hope we both can encourage each other to truly achieve the best, feel like we’re the best, and reach the status of being the best. I love him so much, and I want to thank Rejet, Satoi-sensei, and Midorikawa Hikaru for bringing this character to life in the Diabolik Lovers series.

Thank You for 1000 Followers!

Wow.

I’ve hit a major milestone this week. Never did I imagine when I created this blog a couple years ago I would actually reach 1000 followers. There’s a one thousand of you following little ol’ me. 

These last few months have been significant in my creative growth. This past winter was a very dark time for me as I tried to figure out who I want to be (and yes even at thirty it’s okay to be trying to find yourself in this crazy thing called life). I feel more inspired than ever to continue writing, and to showcase more of my illustrations. 

I guess on that note, you may have seen an increase of mature content on my blog. You will be seeing an increase in mature content going forward but it will be tagged properly so you can blacklist it if this is something you wish to avoid.


Here is what is coming down the pipeline for my blog:

1) An Art shop! I will be opening pre-orders sometime this spring for charms and stickers for my illustrations. (Please keep me in your thoughts as I navigate this new world of art)

2) More Threads of Fate. For those who are following, we still have quite a bit of content to go through before the story is over!

3) More Mature/Explicit Content. Headcanons, one-shots, and art! I’m still fairly shy but my confidence in producing this content is growing. Please be patient with me as I fill up the sin bin.  Like I said earlier, I will be making sure this stuff is tagged properly so you can blacklist if needed. 


So I’m going to take a moment to give a few shout-outs to a couple people I wish I could hug. You guys have left such a positive impact on my life. 

@vergiliaux - Thank you for being so supportive and inspiring me to grow as an sinner artist/writer. Also thank you for being such a supportive sinful tumblr-husbando 8D lol

A huge shoutout to mysme senpais @mintykoi @vess-hs @godd707 @elleellenic  @arashi-chan12 @zombolouge

@jylcie - Thank you for being such a wonderful co-author and my internet unnie! I love our wordbaby Threads of Fate and I look forward to us finishing the store and writing even more together!

@blissfullyintoxicated @11daysofhell @mirror-alchemist - Thank you for always messaging me and showing such enthusiasm for my writing. Your kind words motivate me. <3

@casualpastelgay @serensama @hachig4tsu @fromthedeskofelizabeththird you guys are new friends in my life and I can’t wait to know better!

@ikazon & @sydere - thank you for being there when times have been rough.

I’m sure I’ve missed some people (sorry my memory is awful T_T) but to all of my friends and muses - Thank you for being there and you know how much I love you.

Thank you for Mystic Messenger and the Mystic Messenger Fandom for being one of the nicest fandoms I have been a part of. Mystic Messenger was what re-ignited my passion for creativity. You guys are stuck with me being a primarily Mystic Messenger blog I’m afraid. I’m too knee deep in Mysme Hell to ever get out. 

And also thank you to all 1029 who are there following me, thank you for all of the positive comments about the stuff I create. I read through every note, reblog, comment and you don’t know how happy it makes me knowing my art/writing/shitposting is creating an impact somewhere. 

I’m so, so humbled. Excuse me while I go grab some tissues. T_T 

TLDR: I FUCKING LOVE YOU ALL AND YOU ARE ALL STUCK WITH ME. 

I almost accidentally came out to my entire immediate family

My brother was like “Megan high five”

so i went for it and he put his hand down and went “Who’s gay?” and my hnd was up

and I just gave him a confused look and I said “I am???” in a ‘how dont you know this’ way

and then I realized but luckily he stopped paying attention and no one else was paying me any mind

what an experience
