one more for the heck of it

anonymous asked:

Michael... M8... Bro.. Dude.. Throw it at me man- are you sure you haven't heard from your 'player 1'? Not even subtly? Because the dude could POSSIBLY be a fan ; )

Especially with what happened during our senior year. HE was the one that- …Never mind. I’m sorry.

Anyways, don’t be silly. There’s… There’s no way he could be my fan. But if that were the case, oh man- that would make things a heck of a lot easier.

Am I the only American on here who likes Tintin? I swear if it wasn’t for the movie and a old friend who lives in a UK I probably wouldn’t of got into it. I tried to get some of my old friends to get into it and well… they fine it okay. but not really into it. living in America and liking Tintin is tough. there’s no Tintin shop. there’s only one and it’s in New York. I don’t get why my country don’t like Tintin very much. I guess they don’t have good taste. and the movie didn’t do so well here either. they need to make Tintin more out there in the states. shoot. put more Tintin shops. heck show reruns of Tintin on Nickelodeon or HBO or Cartoon Network like they did in the 90s so more Americans can get into it or something. don’t worry i like Tintin. it’s just feel like it’s not many Americans. i guess they need Tintin to put on a cape so Americans can like him.

And with this color update I’m gonna show you guys a side by side just to emphasize how MUCH OF THIS COLOR THERE WAS LIKE I’M DEAD INSIDE BECAUSE I P MUCH DID IT IN ONE DAY AND GOD IF I COULD BARELY GET THROUGH THIS COLOR, THEN REI’S HAIR IS GOING TO BE A RUDE AWAKENING. Aaaaand also as you can see there’s a HUGE lighting difference and that’s because this blue is so damn dark, I had to up the brightness a SHIT ton for it to show up, but I’m thinking it’ll be much more readable once I start filling in more of the lighter colors around it, that’s my hope anyway. We’re doing hecking fantastic on progress time, we JUST hit workday 4 and we’re averaging at around 3 and a half to 4 hours a day and I’m super duper happy with that, but I can tell you the only reason this is going so fast, is because Ami has such little hair to stitch, but all the other girls are going to be a nightmare hair wise, I don’t expect too much trouble out of Makoto though, and Minako’s not TOO intimidating, but man Rei is going to be the literal end of me like rip me

Why is There So Much Sympathy for the King and Not the Prince?

[Includes spoilers through end of Ep 8]


At first I saw a few random comments under some YouTube clips from viewers who said they secretly wanted to see the King end up with Chae Kyung and not the Prince. There was a general apology that went something like, “I’m sorry…I can’t help it.” 

But pretty soon this grew into a fairly large wave of general feeling of people having more sympathy for the King than Yeok. This really had me perplexed for awhile because I see the King as emotionally unstable, insecure, drunk with power, a tyrant over his people and fairly crazy while Yeok is the rational one of stable character, intense inner strength and a romantic heart. Oh, did I mention that Yung tried to have Yeok killed? How could anyone have sympathy for Yung?

What the heck is going on? Why do so many viewers not see what I see?

Wae? Wae?! WAE??!

Well, I figured it out.

It’s simple really. Indeed we have seen Yung as being so intensely jealous of his father’s love and preference for his younger brother. So jealous that it drives him to madness, strange behavior, and he even tries to have his brother killed. But we have also seen a lot of Yung’s viewpoint of his relationships with his family up until this point. We’ve seen him adore and love his brother as a child, we’ve seen the pain he had to endure at the loss of his mother and not being able to honor her death, a pain that he is reminded of daily simply by the presence of Yeok’s mother as the Queen Dowager. When the Queen Dowager begs Yung not to kill Yeok, Yung realizes how she truly feels about him. He feels betrayed and his love for her has been for nothing.

We are also shown Yung’s softer side with Chae Kyung. He is kind, playful and loving with her. He takes care of her in times of need and she has been there for him as well. She made a special ceremony for him to honor and pray for his mother. We see a lot of Yung’s pain and his kind side that no one else but Chae Kyung sees. 

No wonder so many feel sympathy for him. We are shown so many events of his past and so many sides of him. We can relate to him.

But what about Yeok? Remember when he first came on the scene as an adult? Heroic, strong, brave, dashing, determined!  Didn’t we expect him to continue in that role? But he didn’t, did he?

Instead we soon find him chilling at the pawn shop, thinking and planning but not acting terribly heroic. He isn’t really doing much of anything but hiding out.

Worse yet, how do we see him with Chae Kyung? Rude and unkind, for the most part. He first encounters her accidentally and is shaken to hear his older brother refer to her as his “wife.” In that moment, for him, all bets are off. All the pain he endured to come back to Chae Kyung was for nothing in his mind because she did not keep her promise. She betrayed him with his own brother! This is what he is thinking. He has no reason to think otherwise. He’s bitter and jealous and can’t seem to let it go. Each time he sees Chae Kyung, he’s flat out rotten to her.

And yet, when danger looms, Yeok always takes her hand and makes an effort to protect her. But the moment they are alone, despite her kindness to him, he can’t help but attack her with harsh words. It’s not until she’s arrested and in true danger for her life, that he he shows how desperately he loves her. But rather than have an immediate plan like most heroes we’ve seen, he’s impulsive, unwise, unsuccessful. What kind of hero is this?

So far he is pretty hard to like. Well, not for me. But I can see why people don’t have a lot of sympathy for him. He’s been a real jerk for the most part.

But nevertheless, deep down inside, a hero Yeok is indeed. Not all heroes are meant to charge in, battle the baddies and save the maiden all in one shot. Yeok is a thinking hero. Once he settles down and accepts his true nature, he hatches a plan to save his beloved that works like a charm.

For drama viewers, though, it’s going to take some time just to warm back up to him. 

Yeok is not the hero we expected or are used to in a drama. In the story so far they have shown very little of his pain or his kind nature like they have with the King. This is the simple reason why viewers are finding it hard to have sympathy for Yeok.

* BUT! *   I sense we are on the verge of having our hearts touched by Yeok again. Why?

In Eps 8 we started to see a change. Not only did we see Yeok live up to his heroic potential, we saw him being sweet and kind to Chae Kyung for the first time since childhood. We saw him choking back his tears at her bedside. His sacrifice of giving back her ring even though it broke his heart. Why did he do that? So she would no longer feel committed to him. He was releasing her from any obligation to him. We saw him being utterly selfless in that moment. We also saw him restraining his feelings and jealousy in letting Yung be the visible hero and carry her off from her suffering on the cross. 

We always knew he loved her, despite his rudeness. But now we actually see him expressing it.

This is the side of Yeok we’ve been wanting to see. And I think it’s going to grow from here on. I think the more we see him showing his love for her, the more people will be on his side. I hope, in turn, we are allowed to see more of his struggle as well, his suffering and how the thought of Chae Kyung was the only thing that gave him the will to live in those difficult years. If we see more of this, we will be able to feel empathy for him. I already do. I see all this in him without having to “see” it on the screen. But most people really need to see these things with their eyes in order to feel for a character.

Yeok’s heroic grand entrance at the end of Ep 8 was the very thing we’d been longing for!  I truly did not see it coming, which made it all the more exciting. A loud, strong voice, the thunder of drums, and shazam!  He is here! He walks right up to his brother and confidently announces who he was. No more hiding, no more secrecy. Even the King is taken aback at this brashness.

At long last arrives our hero! 

All 6ft of him. 100% badass.

Predictions …

I believe it is only the beginning. It feels like a pivoting point for the story. I think we will now see more of an unfolding of Lee Yeok. I truly believe that we will see happy, playful, loving times between Yeok and Chae Kyung. They may be short lived, but I believe we will finally get to enjoy their love.

I think we will see an arc of Yeok’s character change and when we do, viewers will come back around to his side. I feel this from the writing and directing style. I sense a gradual path that this story is progressing along. I also feel this in my gut as a fan and follower of Yeon Woo Jin. One thing I’ve noticed in the roles that he’s played, he always chooses a character who is misunderstood early on and later revealed to be exactly who you hoped he’d be and, in fact, always was. I have faith that it will be that same in this case.

FAQs for Artists for the Philinda Big Bang

What sort of art can we do?

Any that is fan art. Traditional or digital drawing. Photo edits/manips, fanmixes, fanvideos, gifsets, anything that is visually creative is open for this. Heck stage a puppet theatre imagining of the story you sign up for.

How many pieces of art am I expected to do?

The minimum for the bang is one piece of art per story. If you want to do more than that, that is cool, but what is required is one piece of visually creative work.

Can writers sign up to be artists as well?

Yes!

The only rule is that you can’t do art for your own story.

Can we sign up to do art for more than one story?

Yes, there will be the option to be a pinch hitter, someone who takes on a story if there aren’t enough artists in the first round of story picks, or an issue arises.

Do we have to sign up to be a pinch hitter/do art for more than one story?

No, you do not. If you only have the time and/or desire to sign up to do art for one story that is great as well. We just want the amazing artists in this fandom to work with our equally incredible writers.

I’m not traditionally a philinda artist, more of a general agents of shield or mcu artist, am I welcome?

Absolutely! If you are intrigued and want to take part you are more than welcome.

How will I pick what story to work on?

I will go into more detail closer to the dates, but writers will submit a summary of their story as well as length, rating, tags. I will post a list with the writer’s names removed and you will submit a list of the top three summaries you want to work on. I will do my best to match everyone up carefully and fairly, and with their first picks wherever possible.

Great how do I sign up?

On June 27th on, send an email to philindabang@gmail with your name/nickname, tumblr username, email, and whether or not you are willing to do art for more than one story. That’s it.


Right now we have 12-14 stories and it would be amazing if we could make sure all these talented writers are matched up with an artist.

Guess I’ll finally post this here- I’d been putting off posting these to tumbls for a while because I managed to accidentally make two more parts lmao..BUT I lack proper refs for the time periods to complete them so I.. Scrapped ‘em and decided I’ll just post these two after all. Ayy.

I just wanted to draw lil’ grumpers  :’)

  • Steven: Not so fast, Lars. You heard Garnet. We’ve got adventures to go on, Lars - just you and me - and sometimes Sadie and sometimes Lion, but never the Diamonds. You want to know why, Lars? Because they crossed me.
  • Lars: Okay, take it easy, Steven. T-T-That’s dark.
  • Steven: Oh, it gets darker, Lars. Welcome to the darkest year of our adventures. First thing that’s different - no more Diamonds, Lars.
  • Lars: Oh, geez.
  • Steven: I turned myself in to their government, but I made them and the government go away. I’ve replaced them all as the de facto matriarch of the universe, Lars. Beach City wouldn’t have accepted me if I came home without you, so now you know the real reason I rescued you. I just took over the galaxy, Lars, and if you tell the Cool Kids or the Gems I said any of this, I’ll deny it, You’re gonna deny it. because they’ll take my side because I’m a hero, Lars. And now you’re gonna have to go and do whatever I say, Lars, forever! And I’ll, I’ll go out and I’ll find some more of those Cookie Cats, Lars.
  • Lars: What are you talking about?
  • Steven: Because that’s what this is all about, Lars.
  • Lars: Cookie whats?
  • Steven: That’s my one-armed man! I’m not driven by clearing my mother’s name, Lars! That was fake. I-I-I’m driven by finding those Cookie Cats.
  • Lars: Cookie Cats?
  • Steven: I want those Cookie Cats, Lars! That’s my series arc, Lars.
  • Lars: What the heck?
  • Steven: If it takes nine seasons, I want my Cookie Cats, Lars.
  • Lars: What are you talking about, Steven?
  • Steven: That’s what’s gonna take us all the way to the end, Lars. Season Nine! Nine more seasons, Lars. Nine more seasons until I get those Cookie Cats. What is that? For 97 more years, Lars! I want those Cookie Cats, Lars.

A favourite SWR character (Kallus!!) in 1B!!

I can’t imagine him ever pulling such a broad, expressive face unless he was really emotionally provoked in some way - someone really just pushing his buttons. I tried to come up with various scenarios that would force him to go away from his calm, composed personality for a bit, so here’s an injured, disheveled, exhausted Kallus pulling a beast-like grin of victory after a rather intense fight/duel with someone.

(Idk if the pose makes sense cropped like this but he’s kneeling down on his knees.)

Out of the guys, so far I think Yusuke would be the only one to actually treat Akira right in a relationship, but. If I were to be honest with myself, this is… my real p5 ship……. 

I have more things I want to draw of them, so expect more of this trio in the future. :^);;;;

You were probably one of the most angelic people in your year. You were always kind, got good grades, did your homework – it was a shame you were stuck with a bitch as a roommate. Kim Jenna was always out partying, high-key manipulative, and just got around a lot. 

It was a surprise people actually liked her more than you.

Maybe it was because she was prettier, You pondered sometimes. Maybe it was because she actually talked to everyone, and didn’t just sit alone during lunch. Insecurity was probably the bane of your existence when you were around Jenna, especially since she teased you.

I did this for the “how can you” challenge that’s been going around on facebook. It’s me dancing to part of “Getting Bi” from the tv series crazy ex girlfriend (plus featuring some lines from John Watson lmao). It was filmed at Cincinnati Pride yesterday because why the heck not.

When you think of abandoned/stray animals, animals being released on the end of dirt roads to fend for themselves, what do you imagine? $5 says you’re picturing a dog or cat. And that’s very likely the answer! However, there is a significant problem with people releasing small pets, exotics, livestock, and fish as well. 

Pictured here is Samuel, a beardie we had surrendered a number of years ago. What made Samuel’s case unique is that he was found trucking down the middle of a rural road. The person who caught him thought he was a native lizard and brought him in to my workplace asking for advice on how to keep him as a pet because they’d never seen such a cool lizard before. Once reptile care was explained to them, they didn’t want him, but at least learned he shouldn’t be set back loose, so we took him in (and he has since been adopted). 

I have similarly taken in released or escaped (thought we ALWAYS check lost/found when we take in a stray anything, and none of these had anyone looking) iguanas, non-native turtles and tortoises, rabbits, pigs, parakeets, chickens, and more. Heck, if I had the means, I’d have come home with an abandoned horse tied to a post on a rural road. 

Releasing dogs and cats is bad enough. They’re domesticated species and often succumb to disease, predation, injury, starvation, etc., though in some cases do establish feral populations that are injurious to wildlife. Releasing exotics tends to have one of two outcomes: a swift death or, given appropriate climate conditions and multiple individuals, the establishment of invasive populations that threaten native wildlife. Florida is obviously the textbook example, but populations of non-native animals released intentionally or accidentally by individuals or industries are present in virtually every state and indeed most countries. 

So what do you do if you can’t keep your fish, or rabbit, or iguana? Well, for one, never release it into the wild. Many people romanticize “the wild” as a wonderful taste of freedom after a life of captivity even if they acknowledge that the animal will likely not survive. In reality, “the wild” tends to be a terrifying experience for captive bred or domesticated animals, and their end often comes after tremendous suffering. Even if your animal is well suited for the environment it’s being released into, doing so is almost definitely illegal and potentially harmful to native wildlife. 

Instead, try to seek either a) a qualified new home or b) a rescue organization. There are rescues for virtually every animal under the sun, and for every person who doesn’t want x species, there’s someone else desperate to own one. You should always vet both new homes and rescues to make sure you are surrendering the animal responsibly; a basic verbal interview or questionnaire should make clear if the home or rescue is qualified. And honestly, if you can’t find anything and need to surrender your pet to animal control? They still have a better shot, and if they do wind up being euthanized, it is certainly a favorable death to starvation, disease, predators, exposure, etc.

Remember: whenever you obtain an animal, you are entering an unspoken contract to be responsible for that animal’s wellbeing, from start to finish, be that finish with you or someone else. You break that contract when you leave an animal’s fate to chance by releasing it.
