Incoming! We’ve Got Science from Jupiter!

Our Juno spacecraft has just released some exciting new science from its first close flyby of Jupiter! 

In case you don’t know, the Juno spacecraft entered orbit around the gas giant on July 4, 2016…about a year ago. Since then, it has been collecting data and images from this unique vantage point.

Juno is in a polar orbit around Jupiter, which means that the majority of each orbit is spent well away from the gas giant. But once every 53 days its trajectory approaches Jupiter from above its north pole, where it begins a close two-hour transit flying north to south with its eight science instruments collecting data and its JunoCam camera snapping pictures.

Space Fact: The download of six megabytes of data collected during the two-hour transit can take one-and-a-half days!

Juno and her cloud-piercing science instruments are helping us get a better understanding of the processes happening on Jupiter. These new results portray the planet as a complex, gigantic, turbulent world that we still need to study and unravel its mysteries.

So what did this first science flyby tell us? Let’s break it down…

1. Tumultuous Cyclones

Juno’s imager, JunoCam, has showed us that both of Jupiter’s poles are covered in tumultuous cyclones and anticyclone storms, densely clustered and rubbing together. Some of these storms as large as Earth!

These storms are still puzzling. We’re still not exactly sure how they formed or how they interact with each other. Future close flybys will help us better understand these mysterious cyclones. 

Seen above, waves of clouds (at 37.8 degrees latitude) dominate this three-dimensional Jovian cloudscape. JunoCam obtained this enhanced-color picture on May 19, 2017, at 5:50 UTC from an altitude of 5,500 miles (8,900 kilometers). Details as small as 4 miles (6 kilometers) across can be identified in this image.

An even closer view of the same image shows small bright high clouds that are about 16 miles (25 kilometers) across and in some areas appear to form “squall lines” (a narrow band of high winds and storms associated with a cold front). On Jupiter, clouds this high are almost certainly comprised of water and/or ammonia ice.

2. Jupiter’s Atmosphere

Juno’s Microwave Radiometer is an instrument that samples the thermal microwave radiation from Jupiter’s atmosphere from the tops of the ammonia clouds to deep within its atmosphere.

Data from this instrument suggest that the ammonia is quite variable and continues to increase as far down as we can see with MWR, which is a few hundred kilometers. In the cut-out image below, orange signifies high ammonia abundance and blue signifies low ammonia abundance. Jupiter appears to have a band around its equator high in ammonia abundance, with a column shown in orange.

Why does this ammonia matter? Well, ammonia is a good tracer of other relatively rare gases and fluids in the atmosphere…like water. Understanding the relative abundances of these materials helps us have a better idea of how and when Jupiter formed in the early solar system.

This instrument has also given us more information about Jupiter’s iconic belts and zones. Data suggest that the belt near Jupiter’s equator penetrates all the way down, while the belts and zones at other latitudes seem to evolve to other structures.

3. Stronger-Than-Expected Magnetic Field

Prior to Juno, it was known that Jupiter had the most intense magnetic field in the solar system…but measurements from Juno’s magnetometer investigation (MAG) indicate that the gas giant’s magnetic field is even stronger than models expected, and more irregular in shape.

At 7.766 Gauss, it is about 10 times stronger than the strongest magnetic field found on Earth! What is Gauss? Magnetic field strengths are measured in units called Gauss or Teslas. A magnetic field with a strength of 10,000 Gauss also has a strength of 1 Tesla.  

Juno is giving us a unique view of the magnetic field close to Jupiter that we’ve never had before. For example, data from the spacecraft (displayed in the graphic above) suggests that the planet’s magnetic field is “lumpy”, meaning its stronger in some places and weaker in others. This uneven distribution suggests that the field might be generated by dynamo action (where the motion of electrically conducting fluid creates a self-sustaining magnetic field) closer to the surface, above the layer of metallic hydrogen. Juno’s orbital track is illustrated with the black curve. 

4. Sounds of Jupiter

Juno also observed plasma wave signals from Jupiter’s ionosphere. This movie shows results from Juno’s radio wave detector that were recorded while it passed close to Jupiter. Waves in the plasma (the charged gas) in the upper atmosphere of Jupiter have different frequencies that depend on the types of ions present, and their densities. 

Mapping out these ions in the jovian system helps us understand how the upper atmosphere works including the aurora. Beyond the visual representation of the data, the data have been made into sounds where the frequencies
and playback speed have been shifted to be audible to human ears.

5. Jovian “Southern Lights”

The complexity and richness of Jupiter’s “southern lights” (also known as auroras) are on display in this animation of false-color maps from our Juno spacecraft. Auroras result when energetic electrons from the magnetosphere crash into the molecular hydrogen in the Jovian upper atmosphere. The data for this animation were obtained by Juno’s Ultraviolet Spectrograph. 

During Juno’s next flyby on July 11, the spacecraft will fly directly over one of the most iconic features in the entire solar system – one that every school kid knows – Jupiter’s Great Red Spot! If anybody is going to get to the bottom of what is going on below those mammoth swirling crimson cloud tops, it’s Juno.

anonymous asked:

Do you ever feel like the universe conspired to put 1D together? Like, weren't H and LT at a game pre-band? And N and LP were roommates on Xfactor? Like? It all feels very fated. Can you imagine the ten thousand other ways they could have come together?? (I just thought this was probably a Di sentiment. :) )

yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

yes yes yes 200% !!! niall and liam were the ones that went to the same game but yes they also were xfactor bootcamp roomies before the band formed whatsoever!! ! harry and louis went to the same concert and then niall and louis went to the same concert! louis and zayn went for the same job!! 

but other relevant facts are:
- harry quite literally made the age cutoff by days
- it was the first year for ireland auditions
- louis and liam came back and auditioned again
- zayn almost didn’t go, but got dragged out of bed to audition 

ot5 are hardcore, absolutely fated.

i have several tags for this including #fated and #we got put together and the fact just is that the gravity between 1d is so powerful, it literally pulled the xf cameras close to them, watching, circling the five of them specifically before they even got put together, as the pull of that gravity also gradually and breathtakingly nudged them into each other.

some relevant quotes:
-“I love the fact I grew up wanting a brother and now I have four” - zayn with a wish repeated throughout all of them
-we didn’t even know each other and we were in the same stadium” liam “mentally revising unhappy memories with the knowledge of where the others were at the time
- “we’re all back together as a unit again and as you say it’s totally different to any other kind of friendship or relationship that you can actually have.” niall, casually, kindly, full of heart

i can definitely imagine 10,000 ways they could have fated themselves into ot5, but the best thing is - so can they

i have a specific tag for it: making their own AUs again

because you know what?

ot5 also love

the idea that

they are fated.

Before they knew it, the two of them were lying in the dew-covered grass, looking up at the stars. She’d never met another vampire before outside of her own family, which was something he found slightly ridiculous, and, to say the least, intriguing.

“So, what is your name, anyway?”  Sabrina finally asked.

“Ugh.”  He hesitated.“It’s Cerberus. But don’t call me that.”  He laughed.“My father is… old fashioned, to say the least. I prefer Seb.”

“Sabrina.”  She responded.“You have a dad? I just, aren’t most vampires turned?”

He laughed again.“You’re a vampire, so there’s no way you don’t know my dad. Every one of us knows my dad.”  He rolled his eyes. The way he spoke about his father was almost sarcastic.

“For real though, you must have at least heard of Vladislaus. Vladislaus Straud?”

The name rang through her head like an alarm. Oh, she knew about him alright. Her parents briefed her on their situation the moment her and Sosi reached teenhood.

She rolled over so she was practically on top of him.“Listen, Seb, I’m going to go.” She rested her hand on his chest.“But give me your number. This conversation is definitely not over yet.”

A/N: Ok wow. This one has been sitting in the inbox for quite awhile and I feel bad about that. Finals really burnt me out and then I feel into the worse writing slump that I’ve ever had, but I’m happy to have finished this one and hopefully the slump might be ending! Anyways, this one is probably a smidgen more angsty than I intended for it to be, but it’s cute and fluffy at the end I promise! I hope you enjoy!

“No! It has nothing to do with that,” Spencer laughed, resting the phone between his shoulder and head, trying to do his paperwork while continuing his conversation. You sighed in frustration and stirred more coffee into your coffee.  You’d joined the BAU team almost two years ago and had immediately clicked with all of the team members, particularly Spencer. Friendship had led to inevitable feelings for you, but there was one problem. You’d fallen into the friend-zone. This was breaking your heart. (Not Spencer being happy of course, that was the only good thing that had come out of all of this situation.) It was the cause of that happiness that was the source of your loathing. Maeve. Spencer had confided in you about her months ago, when you’d noticed him disappearing four hours a few times a week. You know what, it was fine when she was some disembodied voice on a telephone, but when she became a real person who the team had worked their asses off to bring back from an abduction alive it was your worst nightmare. That was when you’d realized he was in love with her. 

“(Y/N)!”, JJ said waving a hand in front of your face. You snapped out of the trance you hadn’t realized you’d fallen into and shook your head. 

“What’s up, Jayje?” you asked plastering a fake smile on your face. 

“Just bringing you more of those transfer forms that you were asking for,” she replied placing the stack of paperwork on your desk. “So, you’re really doing this huh?” she commented, leaning against her chair. 

“I’ll call you back,” Spencer said quickly hanging up the phone. 

“What’s going?” he asked leaning forward to gain you and JJ’s attention. 

“(Y/N)’s-”

“Late for meeting Morgan at the gym, so you’ll have to excuse me,” you said cutting her off as you stood up. “Not a word,” you muttered in her ear. “Have a nice day, JJ. Reid,” you replied curtly before making a b-line for the elevator. Spencer flinched at the short tone you had used with him and glanced at the stack of papers on your desk. 

“JJ, what was that about?” 

“(Y/N) asked me not to say,” she mumbled, smoothing out her skirt and collected the finished report from the last case that was sitting on your desk. 

“I’m not talking about this transfer or whatever it is you two are doing,” he said, crossing over to her, “I’m talking about why she has been giving me the cold shoulder.”

“Spence she’s not-”

“Please don’t lie to me,” he pleaded, “I just want to know what awful thing I did to make my best friend hate me.”

“Best friend or girl you are secretly in love with?” JJ asked before she could stop herself. “That’s not fair,” Spencer snapped, looking down. 

“Well, my question is still valid although you seem to have found someone who sparks your interest more these days”

“Maeve is just a friend. How many times do I have to say that?”

“A friend who you can’t go one day without talking to for at least an hour?”  

“I value her opinion.”

“There used to be someone else’s opinion you valued above everyone’s and she’s not going to be around much longer,” JJ hinted, subtly trying to clue him in without explicitly telling him. 

“JJ, what are you talking about?”

“Spence, I love you. You know I do, but this is something that you are going to have figure out for yourself or you are going to lose one of the best things that ever happened to you,” she replied, before walking back to her office leaving Spencer standing in the middle of the bullpen more confused than when the conversation started.


“Hey there Pretty Girl,” Morgan called as you strolled into the gym.

“Hey hot stuff, sorry I’m late. I had to discuss something with JJ and then change,” you explained, dropping your gym bag by the door. You’d swapped your usual work attire for a loose tank top, cropped yoga pants, and your Nikes. 

“Not a problem, I’ve got the whole afternoon open,” he replied, leaning against the wall. You laughed and stretched your arms over your head. Other than Spencer, you considered Morgan to be your best friend. “So you gonna tell me what this is really about?”

“Time for a little brush up on hand to hand. The last case was a little too close for comfort,” you lied. In reality, you were looking for an outlet to take out some aggression. 

“Uh huh,” Morgan muttered, clearly unconvinced. 

“Ready? Go,” you said lunging for him in an attempt to derail his train of thought. Derek knew you too well and simply side stepped. You turned on a dime and swung your leg toward his knees. He caught your foot in his hand and shoved you backward. You and Derek had been sparring together since you joined the team, and in that time you’d only beaten him once. In your current distracted state, you had no chance of winning. You steadied yourself and kicked again, this time swinging your leg up to strike his face. 

“So you asking for a transfer has nothing to do with Reid hanging around Maeve?” His question made you freeze up, foot stopping right next to his face, instead of following through. 

“What?” you demanded, still frozen. 

“Your ‘oh so secret transfer’, does it or does it not have something to do with Reid,” he asked, pushing your foot down to the ground. 

“How do you know about that?”

“Did you really think Penelope wouldn’t tell me?”

“I didn’t think she would see it until it was too late,” you grumbled, crossing your arms.

“How long has Hotch been sitting on that paperwork?”

“The first part, a week. I just turned in the rest of it earlier and I guarantee he’s going to hold it as long as he can or until I force him to file it. He’s not happy about this.”

“I don’t blame him. The team is losing a damn good agent and profiler,” Derek replied. 

“The team will be fine,” you insisted, grabbing your bag from where you’d dropped it, “Don’t try to talk me out of this, I’ve already made up my mind.”

“(Y/N), no one wants you to go but we want you to be happy,” he said walking over to you. “I’m just questioning whether or not this will make you happy.”

“I’m happy. It’s just time for a change,” you said slinging your bag over your shoulder. “I have to go.”

“In more ways than one it would seem,” Derek replied, tugging you into his arms, “if you do this, I’m gonna miss you, Pretty girl.”

“I’ll miss you too,” you told him sincerely squeezing his muscular form, “but there is no if. I’m doing this.” You strode out of the gym, shoulders only slumping slightly as you questioned your decision. You sprinted to your car and drove like mad to get home. You were desperate to shake that little seed of doubt that Derek had planted in your mind about your decision before it had time to take root. “Oreo,” you called to your kitty as you opened your apartment door, “I’m sorry I’m late. Are you hungry?” you spoke as you passed through the entry but froze. Spencer was sitting on your couch with your cat curled up in his lap, just purring away. A bowl of popcorn and two beers had been casually placed on your coffee table, while Doctor Who played in the background. “Um, Spence?” you muttered, mentally kicking yourself for giving him the spare key to your apartment. The sound of your voice finally caused him to look up from the book. 

“Oh (Y/N), hi,” he said closing the book and setting it on the back of the couch. 

“What are you doing?” you asked, dropping your gym bag and purse on the ground before heading to the kitchen to start dinner for yourself. 

“Well, I thought since we have the day off tomorrow, maybe we could do movie night?” he asked glancing over at you.

“Movie night?” you snorted, “We only do that when one of us is upset.” You shifted your weight from foot to foot as you filled a pan with water, and you could feel him staring at you. “I’m fine.”

“Clearly you’re not,” he insisted, getting up and walking to the kitchen much to Oreo’s chagrin. She pouted as she hopped up on the counter and sat by her food bowl. You shook your head at her before filling the bowl. “You’re upset about something, there’s talk of some kind of transfer, and on top of all that you’re avoiding me.”

“I am not,” you mumbled, setting the pot down on the cooktop, “I’m just working some stuff out.”

“That’s it?”

“That’s what?”

“C’mon (Y/N), I know you. You don’t do anything without getting other people’s opinions.”

“Spencer, you are the smartest person I know. So why don’t you use that big genius brain of yours, to put all that information together and figure out why I wouldn’t tell anyone,” you said turning to face him. He scrunched his eyebrows up together and you watched as the realization washed over his face.

“You’re leaving?”

“Probably,” you muttered, grabbing a box of spaghetti out of the pantry.

“Why? When? Where?” he asked, trying to deal with the new information. 

“Sex crimes,” you replied, breaking the spaghetti over the pot, “Remember Hotch leant me to them a month ago. Before I left, Agent Tyler told me if I ever was done with BAU there’d be a job open for me in his department and I’ve decided it’s time to move on.”

“But why? I don’t understand. You were happy until like a month ago,” he said, running a hand through his hair. 

“A lot can change in a month,” you mumbled, reaching over and smoothing a hand over Oreo’s fur.

“What?”

“Nothing.”

“Don’t do that,” Spencer groaned, snatching your hand, “Don’t shut me out when I’m just trying to understand-”

“Well, this is one thing you can understand,” you insisted. 

“Then explain it to me.”

“Not possible.”

“Why? You just said that I’m the smartest person you know.”

“Spencer, please. I am trying not to hurt you.”

“You’re already hurting me by shutting me out, so just say it!”

“I’m in love with you, damn it,” you shouted, tearing your hand away from him and wrapping both arms around yourself. Spencer froze and just stared at you. There was no way that those words had come out of your mouth, no way. Right?

“What did you say?” he asked hesitantly. 

“I’m in love with you,” you repeated still hugging yourself, “and watching you fall in love with someone else is slowly killing me. I can’t do it anymore. You wanted to know, so there it is laid out plain as day. I know it’s my own fault for falling in love with my best friend who could never possibly into me that way, but I did and now that’s something that I’m going to have to deal with. I’m-” you were trying to explain but were abruptly cut off when Spencer took your face in his hands and pressed your lips together. It was your turn to freeze be confused. You settled into the kiss after a few seconds and wrapped your arms around his neck. “I don’t understand,” you muttered as you both pulled away to get some air. 

“Well, I thought that would have cleared some things up,”  Spencer chuckled, pressing his lips against your forehead, “but I didn’t just come here to have movie night. I came here to tell you something that I should’ve told you a long time ago, and now that you’ve expressed a positive sentiment about me this will go much more smoothly for me.”

“What are you talking about?”

“Well, to put it plainly, a few of our coworkers knocked some sense into me in regards to feeling but JJ really hit the nail on the head. She made it obvious that I was being a coward. I was content to watch the girl that had dazzled me and ensnared my heart from the moment I met her go about her life and make connections with other people without ever stepping up and going after what I wanted. Her. I did a lot of thinking this afternoon, and I realized that she was right. I had sat by and watched you live life, date other people, have fun, while I sat on the sidelines content that if I couldn’t be with you the way I wanted to be that I could still be in your life. I could live with that, but what I can’t do is be without you in my life. You make me a better person, inspire me to do things I never would’ve dreamed of doing, listen to me when I ramble or blurt out facts, and so many other wonderful things. I’m in love with you (Y/N) (Y/L/N). I am whole heartedly and undeniably in love with you. So, here I am laying my heart out for you and hoping that, if you’ll have me, you’d be willing to hold onto that heart even though you’ve already had it for quite some time,” he replied, holding you close, smoothing a hand over your cheek and wiping away a tear that had fallen from you eye. You were speechless the confession was so beautiful. Without a second thought, you crashed your lips into his and tangled a hand in his hair. He responded immediately, arms tightening around your waist. “I’m hoping that’s a yes,” he chuckled as you parted again. 

“Well duh,” you giggled and tried to stop the happy tears from running down your face as you brushed the hair away from his face. “I’m sorry I’m crying, I’m just really happy.”

“Happy tears are good.”

“I thought you and Maeve were-”

“Ah yes, that. When it first started, I think she and I were both actually considering a relationship of the romantic variety but we both realized that we were trying to replace other people who we were actually in love with,” he explained. 

“Well, I- oh crap.”

“What’s wrong?”

“I guess I should call Hotch to see if I can cancel that transfer.”

“I think you’re safe.”

“Why’s that?”

“I think Hotch hasn’t actually filed the forms yet. Penelope was snooping through the files on his computer when she found the email.”

“Well, everythign seems to have worked itself out,” you chirped happily, “and seeing as you’re here, still want to do movie night?”

“Absolutely, but first. These are for you,” Spencer said producing a bouquet of flowers from the sleeve of his cardigan. 

“How did you do that?” you laughed, taking the flowers and setting them in the vase on the counter. 

“A magician never reveals his secrets.”

“How on earth did I get so lucky to have you in my life?”

“I ask myself that question every single day,” Spencer admitted and kissed you again. 

That Time Bitty Dropped A Pie

bitty dropped a pie because of gosh dang zimmermann 


Bitty hadn’t dropped a pie since he was eleven years old.

It wasn’t one of his greatest moments but he held himself to a certain standard. Bitty handled his pies delicately and treated them like they would be the winning pie at a pie festival. He always made sure he had the best ingredients and that the oven was working to its optimum. Making pie was a form of art in Bitty’s eyes and it was only a huge disappointment of a pie turned out wrong.

So, he was always focused and ready to go, in his zone as he rolled out the pastry and prepped the fruit. There was nothing that could distract him as he expertly created his beautiful masterpiece, his tongue slightly sticking out of the corner of his lip. He had done this many times before and there was absolutely no way that he would ever mess this up.

Then came along Jack Zimmermann.

That boy.

Bitty hadn’t dropped a pie since he was eleven years old.

Well, that all changed on one summery afternoon.

The people of the Haus had demanded pie (Shitty mostly, as he paraded around in the nude), and Bitty was in the mood for baking anyway.

He decided on a mixed berry pie since he had gone to the farmers’ market with Lardo the day before. They were fresh and perfect, and Bitty just knew this was going to be a good bake. 

Bitty was just bringing out the pie when Jack walked into the kitchen, all sweaty after a run. He gave Bitty a nod and smile in greeting, heading towards the sink to get a drink. He stopped by the cupboards first and whoever placed the glasses on the very top were very, very cruel. 

Jack, even with how tall he was, had to reach to bring one down and at that moment, his shirt began riding up. Bitty was only human and his eyes drifted down, feeling so teased by the sliver of lightly tanned skin. Then, Jack reached even higher and more glorious skin was revealed along with a line of the deep v that led all the way down to- 

Bitty’s brain may have short circuited. 

May have. 

Next thing he knew, Shitty was knelt over the fallen pie as he cried real tears while Ransom and Holster prepared a proper burial for it. Lardo comfortingly patted Shitty’s shoulders, offering her condolences. The Frogs had been out at the time so they didn’t have to witness this horrifying sight.

All Jack did was just…stare at the pie.

Bitty stared at it too, his expression blank because he was just too shocked to comprehend what happened. 

He had just dropped a pie. 

He dropped a pie. 

A pie because of- 

“Excuse me,” He said to no one in particular as he took off his apron and went outside, he needed some air. 

He didn’t notice Jack watching him, a knowing smile on his lips, as he left.

Look at these vicious, violent hounds

we've never met but, can we have a coffee or something?

for ninette week: AU:  based on this song. 

p.s. it’s like super late. 


rain softly pitter patters the top of his umbrella, droplets sliding down the fabric and dripping on the ground. water splashes his shoes, his pant legs, biting into the bare skin where his sock used to be snug.

Jensen: “Good trip so far?”  

You: “She only dropped juice all over herself once and cried to the top of her lungs twice. It’s going great and everyone in this plane loves us.”

Jensen: “Ha! I’ll be in the lookout for viral videos of you sending someone to hell if they cross the line. Show em your mean right.”

You: “Funny. I wouldn’t be surprised if someone is a jerk to us.”

Jensen: “I wouldn’t be surprise if you kick their asses.”

You: “You know me so well. She’s sleeping right now.”

Jensen: “Give her a kiss for me. Gotta go.”

After locking your phone, you looked down to the sleeping beauty in your arms. Knowing she rested peacefully in your arms melted your heart. She didn’t have a care in the world. You knew she was feeling cold when her tiny body curled towards you. The corner of your lip curved up watching her seek for warmth in you. Slowly and trying not to wake her up, you grabbed the pink blanket from your bag and covered her up.  

The flight went on for two more hours until you finally landed in Vancouver. Jensen was waiting for you as you walked out of the airport. His smile got wider watching you walk towards him with the stroller.  The sudden flashing lights interrupted the moment.

Jensen’s picked up his pace and reached you and JJ. He gave you a kick kiss on the lips before escorting you towards the car. You re-adjusted your bag and followed him closely towards the car.

“Are you okay after the accident, Y/N?”, “When’s the wedding?”, “Is there a wedding at all?!”, “You gotta put a ring on it, Jensen! She’s too hot!”.

how would u describe ur aesthetic?

idk man i dont think i have one. my “aesthetic” on here is v watered down but i guess i like the more romantic end of victorian gothic, pretty girls, sparkly anything, cats, occult-related stuff, over the top dresses and anything that feels nostalgic. so basically im gay, vain and have expensive taste so just heaps of Not Good.

In honor of these new benchmarks for the solo 1Ders, we've decided to rank all 10 of the solo singles they've collectively released so far.

With the release of Liam Payne’s Quavo-featuring “Strip That Down” last Friday (May 19), fans at long last have a complete set of One Direction solo singles: All five members have made their entrance as proper pop solo entities.

What’s more, “Strip” makes it an even ten singles between the five members – not counting Harry Styles’ promotional quasi-single “Sweet Creature” – with Zayn obviously doing most of the heavy lifting, after his near-year head start on the other four.

In honor of these new benchmarks for the solo 1Ders – including our most recent cover star, the recently minted “grown-ass-man” Niall Horan – we’ve decided to rank all 10 of the solo singles they’ve collectively released so far. Read on below, and look forward to our list certainly ballooning in size (and debatability) in the years to come.

hello!! i was wondering something about your art, which i absolutely love btw; how do you make your lineart a little bit misty-looking? i think it looks really cool that way!!

Ah, thank you! I get my lineart to get that misty look by having two line art layers, one of them blurred with Gaussian blur

for example:

this is my original line art layer. I take this and take it to Photoshop.

I do this:

When I get the resulting blurred lines, I simply overlay it directly on top of a copy of the original line art so that it looks like this:

And that’s how it’s done!

You can also get some neat effects by putting overlays over it and such

Hope this helps :)

TalesFromYourServer: "We'll just take this one," -oblivious dad

Not my story, but this happened to my coworker today and was so ridiculous we just had to laugh.

Her section was set up for mostly big parties with one or two 4 tops. She had a party of twelve trickling in when the hosts tried to seat a family of 4 (parents and two young children). They refused the first two tables they were offered. Finally, the frustrated host asked them where they’d prefer to sit.

“We’ll just take this one,” The dad said and, I shit you not, he walked over to the twelve top and tried to split up the table. There were literally eight people already sitting at those tables. All of the settings were in place. THERE WERE GLASSES OF WATER ALREADY DOWN. How do you not notice that? What the actual fuck??

So the host asks him to stop because that table is clearly already being used, you know LITERALLY right then. So after a bunch of huffing and puffing they take a table on the other side of her section.

I know we joke all the time about guests pouncing on dirty tables, but rarely do I see a group so oblivious that they don’t notice that the table they’re requesting is currently being used.

The Song Is You (Chapter Three)

Summary: A summer road trip with your best friend lends its way to some revelations.

Author’s Note: We’re back by popular demand! Sorry for the long delay – we’ve both been insanely and inescapably busy and haven’t really been online. BUT, let’s make up for it by another installment of our creation, hm? We really hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoyed writing it ♥♥ 

Words: 3,775 

Warnings: It’s been a long time but I THINK nothing?? Unless jealously is a trigger? 

Sending our love, Leah & Esme 

(Leah wrote like all of this part, so if you hate any of it, it’s her fault) 


After twenty minutes of driving and both of you pretending like you weren’t glancing at each other, you were grateful when Lin slowed the car as you entered the parking lot of a diner. You looked up, watching the sun’s peak over the top of the one-story building that sat in front of you. You paid too much attention to what you were observing and didn’t notice Lin watching you, too distracted by your luminescence to pay attention to the moving cars in the parking lot. A curse fell from his lips as he dodged a car that was backing out and he was thankful you hadn’t seen.

But what if is all a MISUNDERSTANDING and Isak was not punched by the balloon squad, like the trailer says “don’t let me be misunderstood”

Yeah that’s what me and other people have been screaming at the top of our lungs since the “imagine” clip dropped. ..where have you been buddy?

unfortunately my meta/recap of the “imagine” clip somehow doesn’t show up in my tag…but if you want to read my metas and speculations in general (and I think the one where I speculated about what really happened is in there) they’re over at #monstrueuse-meta
