There's this one fic where James is completely and utterly adorable in a shy way and mumbles/markers a lot... that's the only key word I could remember? I think you have posted it before - James is hopelessly enamored with lily and lily is a little more outspoken than James ... I know this is generic but I remember the characterization of James was soooo cute and he was shy, it was a longer fic

If you can think of more, that would be great.  But you might be remembering this one, which does have James acting very quiet around Lily:

Summary: “We don’t deserve her,” the Head Boy answered thoughtfully. “None of us do. Not even me. Not because she’s perfect. She’s not. Sometimes I think she’s even more disastrously flawed than the rest of us combined. And not because she’s beautiful, even though she is. Certainly not for being lovely because she never was. We don’t deserve her because she’s so much more than we’ll ever be”

****Long post alert***. This is primarily for the asks rotting in my inbox for months. Apologies! I have been MIA from Tumblr and the bowl for a while now (sick). Anyway, the title of this post pays homage to two seductresses I admire a lot. My sugar daddies who have been great mentors. The horrible men I’ve dated who have equally taught me a lot. And Robert Greene (author of Art of Seduction and Mastery. Great books. READ them!),You become a master by observing first. Analyze. Learn. Practice. Experiment. Apply. Transform.  "When you learn the rules, you can dominate".

Lesson 1: Seduction is more psychological than physical. The physical aspect of it is important as well. That’s it’s own category. But when you understand what your sugar daddy truly wants, you can (dare I say, ) “manipulate” him better. Anyone can be seductive. From skinny to bbw to medium size to giant scar on your forehead. You can succeed as a sugar baby. You just have to understand how to play the game and yes, I do think it’s all a game. So next time your sugar daddy yaps about his robust, lazy wife who may or may not be fucking the foreign gardener and spends 9 hours at the country club; and his cocaine addicted son at Harvard, LISTEN. He wants a shoulder, so be that. The key here is to show that support, care, and understanding but at the same time, don’t tangle yourself in the drama that you become his on-call therapist. Don’t call him at 10pm at night to check up on him. Unless he’s willing to pay you $800 per hour. When you understand what a person wants/how their mind operates, you can cater to their needs/deal with them better. OBSERVE. When you master psychological seduction, you will be well on your way.

Lesson 2: Be mysterious/intriguing. If your mom kicked you out of the house when you were a fetus, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF, at least in the initial stages. If you dropped out of college when you were still in the womb, keep it to yourself. When you reveal too much of yourself, you tire/bore people and eventually become forgettable. Everyone has a story. So save your sob story and ex boyfriend drama for the struggling author down the street who has been having writer’s block for the past 15 years.  What does Cleopatra,Marilyn Monroe, and Casanova all have in common? Mystery/leaving something to the imagination. These women/man armed themselves with an air of mystery that left those in their wake yearning for more. I’ve never seen Angelina Jolie as one of the most beautiful women on earth. But man there’s something about her that makes Hollywood go crazy. She shares bits of herself and her life but there’s always that edge of mystery. She leaves you wondering what’s going on behind the *is it fake or is it not fake* lips/smile. The key is timing. Don’t share too much.  Keep them guessing. No need for your sugar daddy or pot to know what cards you have up your sleeves. By sharing too much, you make yourself seem needy and DESPERATE. No bueno.

Lesson 3: Don’t always be available. I used to make this mistake, especially when I liked a guy. Never lasted long in my opinion. So I learned and changed tactics and mannnnn things definitely changed. Sometimes, saying NO works more in your favor. I don’t care if you’re bored out of your mind at home and counting the cobwebs on your ceiling. An occasional NO will put a sugar daddy in his place. It will tell him that you’re not at his beck and call. It will also tell him that you have other priorities outside of sugaring. Your life/time does not revolve around him. If he’s that interested in you, trust me, he will reschedule and work with you. Don’t turn into Mrs.NO to Everything but learn how to use it when applicable. This ties in a bit with mystery. When you say no and he asks what your plans for the day are, cultivate a story if you don’t have legit plans! You can say that you’re going on a short getaway with a group of girlfriends, going on a spa treatment for yourself only, etc. The key here is to appear that you have a fun, adventurous life outside. Your time is PRECIOUS.

Lesson 3.5: Create respectable distance. This ties in with 3. By creating respectable distance, you are again putting a sugar daddy in his place. You need space because you have a life. It will command his respect. The thing about a lot of men is that they loveeee a challenge. Especially wealthy men, who are used to having whatever they desire. By giving him what he wants, whenever he wants it, he will exploit that and before you know it, he will detach and disappear (which a lot of guys do). When you challenge him, it will drive him crazy. It will keep him on edge. He will come back for more. So treat yourself like a rare gem. There are vultures out here. So when you play into his wishes easily, well… easy come, easy goes.And before they go, they will devour you completely. When you allow him to insert himself in every aspect of your life, he will probably take advantage of you. The key here is to create enough distance that he’ll keep wondering about you but not so much that he completely forgets you. This can be tricky but it is not impossible.

Lesson 4: Confidence. I’m one of those people who believe that while some have innate confidence, others have to learn it. So if need be, LEARN confidence. It takes time and patience. Trial/error. Note what your shortcomings are and practice on bettering yourself. It could range from repeating daily mantras to yourself to changing a specific look about you, practice! practice! Note what your strengths are and USE it to your advantage. Again practice!  Marilyn Monroe wasn’t always a sultry, seductress. In fact, from her appearance, her voice, her make-up, to her persona, she had to practice it all to master it, especially in public. It took her years, but she eventually morphed into one of the most iconic seductresses of all time.

Lesson 5: Be bold/ assertive. There is a fine line between boldness/assertiveness and Mrs.Yes. It is okay to voice your interests, opinions, dislikes, etc. It is equally okay to disagree with something your sugar daddy says/wants. The key is to do it respectfully. Don’t try so hard to please him that you agree to everything (including things that make you uncomfortable). If he wants you to have sex with his bald, hairy micro-human friend from the country club and the idea makes your vagina retract in disgust, SPEAK UP. Don’t be Mrs. Yes because it can be dangerous to you. Plus you will give him the upper hand.

Lesson 6: Be playful. You don’t have to be serious 24/7. Make effective use of body language by using eye contact, touch, smiling, etc.Position your posture in such a way that you appear comfortable but not slouching. Engage him in fun activities sometimes. Show him what you enjoy doing/try to learn what he enjoys as well. I remember when I first took my sugar daddy to a rave. He was soooo out of place with his expensive ass suit but we had such a good laugh. It was fun. It is also okay to flirt and tease but do not over do it. . If he tells you of his former beauty queen ex wife who divorced him, took half his wealth, and got full custody of the kids, it will NOT be a good time to start flirting then or batting your eye lashes. The key is to know when to be playful and when to engage in a serious conversation with him.

Lesson 7: Stroke his ego occasionally, especially when he’s a good boy. Let him know you enjoy his company, his time, what he gives you, etc. It’s tough to balance but you don’t want to seem like you can’t do without the lifestyle he grants you. Remember, you are accustomed to a luxurious lifestyle. Men like feeling like protectors, especially wealthy men. So stroke that big fat ego and let him think it. When he misbehaves, adjust accordingly. 

Lesson 8: If all else fails, create/channel an alter-ego. It sounds somewhat extreme but I have one. I created a whole new persona for myself. When I first started out four plus years ago, I appeared too innocent. And that was my biggest weakness. My naivete showed and definitely I was taken advantage of and cheated but I learned. FAST. Soon after, I stopped telling men I was inexperienced. I stopped allowing myself to appear innocent. I became a chameleon.The person I am with sugar daddies/ on pot dates is completely different from the girl I am at home/school/work/with friends. With these men, I am a worldly, experienced WOMAN. I am used to ultra-luxury and deserve nothing but the best. Of course at home/elsewhere, I am a girl/ nursing student who studies a bit too much, curses a bit too much, enjoys being wild with friends and plans on attending medical school to become a psychiatrist. Find what works for you and channel her. We all have inner goddesses and seductresses in us. 

Lesson 9: “Be nice, be nice. Until it’s time to stop being nice…" Okay, this sounds psycho meets fatal-attraction-esque but no worries! know when to curse a  pompous, disrespectful son of a bitch out. Seriously, know when to walk away. Channel your inner Cleopatra/Bitchery and crush his ass. Do not be afraid to stomp an arrogant asshole out of existence (figuratively of course). I don’t care but no amount of money is worth being disrespected. If you allow a man to disrespect and treat you like a common commodity, he will not stick around for long. He will use, abuse, and break you. And frankly, You DO NOT deserve that. If he calls you a racial slur ( and claims it’s a joke, LIES), forces himself on you, disrespects you in anyway hurtful and dehumanizing, among other things, WALK THE FUCK AWAY and report the incident to authorities if the action warrants it. And let your middle finger do the rest of the talking. 

**All in all, I hope this helps someone out here. Remember, what works for one person make not work for you. But you can still learn from others around you** And that my friends, is the most important lesson of all.

Animation Process Part 1: Thumbnailing, Keys, and Extremes

A week or so ago I finally finished this little dance animation that I’ve been chipping away at in my spare time! In the end it took me about 45 hours over the course of 8 months.

I documented each stage of the process in gifs and wanted to share in order to give anyone just starting out an insight into my workflow and how I break a complex motion into digestible, accomplish-able chunks so that I don’t get overwhelmed by the amount of work that’s ahead.

In this first part I’m going explain a little bit of my approach to thumbnailing. The great thing about this part of the hand drawn animation process is that I would approach it the same way in ANY piece of software. This stage is just about drawing and timing. Even the lowest tier programs can do that. It’s not until the cleanup stage that any of the bells and whistles matter.

The Research Stuff

Before starting any drawings I like to search around youtube for inspiration; especially if it’s an action I’m not entirely familiar with. I had just watched the webseries The Earliest Show in which Lauren Lapkus and Ben Schwartz do a lot of really great dancing, so I studied a couple of those frame by frame. I also looked at some swing dancing competition videos to get a feel for the basic steps.

https://youtu.be/plOMomN9F5g?t=25m25s

For stuff like dancing or even playing an instrument I’m not familiar with I like to sometimes look up a couple beginners’ tutorials just to get some ideas for how to approach the movement.

This isn’t days of research. It’s just half an hour to an hour to get a feel for what you want to accomplish. Anything more than that and it can easily turn into procrastination.

The Drawing Stuff

Once I’m satisfied with my research I begin the thumbnailing process. As you can see, my drawings at this point are only slightly more detailed than a stick figure. I’m not worried at all about mass, I’m just trying to nail down some simple, clear poses.

The Animation Stuff

In order to not be overwhelmed by everything I like to approach scenes in a very systematic way. I’d say 90% of the animation I do is Pose to Pose meaning that I break actions up into 4 different types of drawings

Keys: The main storytelling poses. If the story of the shot is “Man hears news and is disappointed” then you only have two keys to do - the man hearing the news, and the man being disappointed. I’m not thinking about how he’s going to get from pose to pose at this point, I’m just thinking “What’s the best drawing to show that this man is really disappointed”.

Extremes: These are all the poses that have to be there in order for the action to work. If someone is walking across the room it’s every drawing where their feet make contact with the ground. If someone’s jumping in the air it’s the anticipation down and the highest point of their arc. The way I think of them is that they’re the furthest up, down, left, and right the character is going to go as well as any drawing where they make contact.

Breakdowns: These are the poses that establish or reinforce the physics behind the motion. If an arm is swinging forward and the hand drags behind this is the drawing that shows that. When a character does a high kick and puts the entire weight of their body into it this is the drawing that shows the hips shoving forward as the foot just starts to lift from the ground.

Inbetweens: The drawings that smooth out and polish the movement. Here I’m focused solely on the spacing of the drawings. Is it slowing out or slowing in? How far do I want to favor one way or the other? What’s the shape of the path of action? Are the drawings following a nice arc?

This is one of many ways to categorize the drawings. I’ve seen a lot of people who combine extremes into their keys phase, and others who combine extremes into their breakdown phase, and others still who do breakdowns while they’re inbetweening. This is just what works for me.

(For a more thorough explanation of Keys, Extremes, Breakdowns, and Inbetweens see pages 64-68 of Richard Williams’ The Animator’s Survival Kit)

For the thumbnails I’m only focusing on the Keys and the Extremes.

First I do the keys which for the first dance involve these four drawings:

As you can see there’s no thought about the weight of the movement. That’s fine. I’m just establishing how he’s going to hit each accent.

From there we go to the Extremes

Here I start to add a little bit of weight to it. The main things the extremes (in green) are establishing is the foot pattern. How is he passing his weight from one leg to the other?

With the torso I wanted to loosen it up a little bit. If you look at the keys they all have a really similar line of action. I reversed the line of action for the extremes which adds more change of shape and helps it feel more lively - even at this early stage

The arms are just establishing the passing positions of the arm swing. They’re fairly straightforward.

If you notice, these extremes have a lot of qualities of breakdowns in them. If I had to label them more precisely I’d say that what I’m calling the extremes are the contact drawings of the legs combined with the passing positions (breakdowns) of the upper body. I call them extremes instead of breakdowns because the legs are the most important part of these drawings and I wouldn’t consider those legs broken down at all; they’re just contact drawings. These hybrid drawings are the reason that so many animators categorize drawings differently. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter what you call any of this stuff as long as it makes sense to you and the end result looks good.

The Technical Stuff

At this point the entire animation is just a rough drawing on one layer. I would do this exactly the same in Harmony, Flash, Photoshop, or TV Paint. As long as you have drawing tools and a timeline you can thumbnail out animation like this

Extra Pro tip: It’s really helpful at this stage to establish some kind of basic ground plane or perspective - even if it’s just a character dancing in a void. This really helped keep the 3 Dimensional space in mind while planning his footwork. It also reminded me to have the character lean a little forward and backward in Z space as he’s moving. It’s easy to forget that kind of stuff when a character’s facing camera. Without it the animation will always feel a little flat.

That’s it for my thumbnailing process! If you found it helpful check out the next posts in the series!
Part 2: Rough Keys/Extremes and the Shift and Trace Technique

dabard95  asked:

Imagine Percy has gone off to help some hapless campers once again, and Annabeth isn't too worried because come on, it's PERCY. Then she reaches into her pocket for something, some change or her keys maybe, and instead she pulls out Riptide in its pen form.

Her fingers close around something narrow and smooth, and Annabeth’s heart stutters to a stop in her chest. 

The kids are dancing around her knees, squealing and hitting out at each other, each calling for her attention, and the baby’s balanced on her hip and crying because her favourite pacifier has gone missing and the gods know she won’t accept any replacements. They’re running horrendously late for lunch with Frederick, and it’s pure chaos, but everything slows down as Annabeth pulls her hand out of her pocket and looks down to see the pen. The magical pen that is always meant to find its way back to Percy’s pocket.

But it’s not in Percy’s pocket, it’s in hers, and that means that he’s gone out to help rescue some campers stranded by the Hudson without any weapon.

Oh, shit.

part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5, part 6, part 7, part 8, part 9, part 10 (you are here), based on @skygemspeaks‘s prompt


Shouyou only realizes he’s staring when Kageyama smacks him in the back of the head and tells him to quit glaring. And honestly. As if he has any room to talk.

“You were so excited to see your friend, why don’t you go say hi?” Suga suggests in his quiet way.

And Shouyou appreciates the thought but honestly he doesn’t think they understand his problem. He waited all this time for Kenma’s scary boyfriend to leave him alone but even when he disappeared with the ace spiker that looks like an owl and his angry setter, the giant silver guy, Lev, stayed behind with Kenma and Shouyou does not want to be crushed.

“He’s huge,” Shouyou laments, wondering if he’s ever going to be able to say hello to his friend for real, instead of just on the court.

Yamaguchi is giving him the oddest look and Shouyou can’t tell if it’s because he’s amused or confused but it’s weird. “You mean Lev? But he’s harmless!”

“So you’ve met him too! He’s so huge though, and he was glaring at me earlier and made fun of me for being short.” Shouyou pouts at the floor, somewhat annoyed (not for the first time) that he’s the second shortest player at the camp.

“He probably didn’t mean it,” Yamaguchi assures him. “Right, Tsukki?”

Tsukishima gives his boyfriend the most long-suffering look Shouyou has seen on him in a while. “You are short. Why wouldn’t he say something about it?”

“Exactly! Lev just says things how he sees them, you’ll like him a lot, Hinata!” Yamaguchi beams and Shouyou is stuck wondering if he’s just been insulted or encouraged.

He doesn’t know how long he sits there considering his options (and wondering whether he should be offended or not) before Kageyama speaks up again through a mouth full of food. “Why do you know so much about him?”

After deciphering a lot of blushing and stuttering and something about social media that Shouyou doesn’t completely understand, he manages to decipher that Yamaguchi (and, to some extent, Tsukishima) taught Lev to play volleyball in the first place. That’s all he manages to pry out of them though, no matter how much he begs Yamaguchi.

Eventually Kageyama gets tired of Shouyou’s whining though, and all but throws him at the grassy area where Kenma and Lev are sitting. Shouyou takes it in stride though, bouncing over to his friend cheerfully and barely noticing the slightly uncomfortable pressure on his chest.

“Kenma!” he says at what he thinks is a perfectly reasonable volume despite his excitement. He feels a little guilty about Kenma’s slight flinch, but when his face smooths over into a tiny smile, the feeling dissipates. “I didn’t get to talk to you before.”

“Hi,” Kenma says, as quietly as he usually does. “Shouyou, Lev. Lev, Shouyou.”

Lev looks at Shouyou with wide eyes. “You’re the tiny one! You’re friends with Kenma?”

There’s something not quite normal in Kenma’s voice, the way he sometimes sounds on Skype after a bad day. “Yeah! Kenma and me met at the last training camp. Have you been on the team all year?”

Lev says he has, and he and Shouyou get to talking, and then suddenly it’s sunset. Shouyou is the first to admit that he’s kind of an idiot, but even he knows that Kenma doesn’t really want to be included in the discussion right now. But Lev, this giant silver boy, is great. He hates to say that Yamaguchi and Tsukishima are right about anything, ever, but this guy speaks Shouyou’s language of excitement and sound effects.

“And when you hit the ball with that crazy whip spike it’s like–”

“Fwoosh,” they say at the same time, with equal excitement.

“But you’re so bouncy, that’s gotta be so cool, like–”

He and Lev lock eyes. “Gwaah!”

“That’s exactly it,” Shouyou says, a little, tiny bit winded. “And getting– getting a spike through a triple block is– is like–”

“Shouyou.” This time it’s Kenma talking over him, tone as gentle as ever, but slightly louder than normal so he’s heard.

Shouyou and Lev both shut up immediately, and Shouyou winces when he notices that Kenma is looking at his shoulders, rather than his face.

“Yeah?”

“You didn’t change before your practice matches today.” It’s not a question, but a confirmation of a suspicion.

Shouyou looks at the ground, rubbing sheepishly at the strap on his shoulder. “There wasn’t time before my match–”

“Shouyou.” Kenma still sounds as gentle as ever, but there’s a firmness there that Shouyou knows won’t be going away anytime soon. “Please.”

There’s no use arguing with him about this; Shouoyou knows from experience. He stands up with a wince– the grassy hill isn’t the most comfortable and it’s been… nearly ten hours since he got dressed this morning so he’ll allow that Kenma is right for now –and smiles at Lev.

“I’ll see you later!” Something occurs to him right as he’s turning to head down the hill toward the room he’s staying in, and he turns back. “Also, you might want to say hi to Yamaguchi, he looked like he was too shy earlier.”

“Yamaguchi is here?” Lev looks like an excited puppy again, and Shouyou has to wonder at his choice in friends.

A gentle tug on the hem of his shirt stops him one more time, and this time it’s Kenma staring at him with wide golden eyes largely hidden by his bangs. “Don’t wear it during practice, Shouyou. You’ll hurt yourself.”

“I just forgot, don’t worry so much Kenma!” He knows Kenma doesn’t believe him, but it really was just because he forgot today. It’s not that big a deal, as long as he changes pretty soon.

Luckily (or maybe not luck but timing, since people are still eating dessert and not coming back to their rooms), when he gets to the room he’s staying in, there’s no one there yet. Shouyou strips as quickly as he dares, feeling the pressure of his binder release finally. Noya-san and Suga-san aren’t going to find out about this, he tells himself, grinning wryly as he imagines the inevitable scolding he’d get. That he’s going to get, when Kageyama finds even half a second without other people around, because he’ll remember pretty soon that Shouyou was supposed to change into a sports bra before playing.

As he’s reaching for his shirt again, the door opens.

“No, Lisochka, I promise we got here fine, stop worrying so much–” Lev blinks at Shouyou, who freezes, wide-eyed and completely exposed other than the shirt hanging uselessly in his hand. “Oh sorry man, let me know when you’re done.”

And just like that, he closes the door and continues his conversation on the other side. Shouyou lets out a breath he didn’t even know he was holding. It all took less than fifteen seconds, but he can’t help his relief that it’s over.

Then Shouyou realizes that, well, at the very least it’s one more person who knows and (probably?) accepts him, even if he would have liked to have the choice to tell his new friend on his own time. He pulls his pajama shirt on, forgoing anything underneath because he’s going to fall asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow tonight and doesn’t want to have to change.

He bounces out of the room with most of his usual energy, not completely eager to go out and face… this whole situation, only to run bodily into Lev, who’s standing outside the door with a mildly irritated Noya-san.

“But he’s changing, I shouldn’t let anyone– oh! Hi, Hinata! You done?” Lev peers down at him, phone in hand as if he’d only recently hung up.

Shouyou nods and looks curiously at Suga-san, who’s holding an overnight bag. “Are you in this room too, Noya-san?”

The libero smiles brightly at him. “I am! If you’re done, I’d really like to change now, too because people are going to be swarming soon.”

“Of course!” Shouyou almost adds that Noya-san could have just come in– it’s not as though they aren’t on the same team, or don’t get changed in the same room almost daily. Then he realizes that Lev must have been keeping him out, for Shouyou’s privacy.

He smiles at the giant boy, who looks content that he did a good job defending his new friend’s honor. “We’re going to have a lot of fun this week, Lev!”

The night was windless, the snow drifting straight down out of a cold black sky, yet the leaves of the heart tree were rustling his name. “Theon,” they seemed to whisper, “Theon.”

The old gods, he thought. They know me. They know my name. I was Theon of House Greyjoy. I was a ward of Eddard Stark, a friend and brother to his children. “Please.” He fell to his knees. “A sword, that’s all I ask. Let me die as Theon, not as Reek.” Tears trickled down his cheeks, impossibly warm. “I was ironborn. A son … a son of Pyke, of the islands.”

Mbti and their study styles

     *note, this is all theoretical and based loosely on function dynamics, it wont be 100% accurate*

ENFJ: auditory learner, you learn better by listening and taking detailed and generally pretty notes *example*
You: *listening to a history lecture* doodling a picture of Christopher Columbus on Plymouth rock holding a flag with the year “1492” on it

ESFJ: book learner, you learn best by reading through the text a few times, you probably use story association to remember things *example*
Text: the mitochondria is the PowerHouse of the cell
You: the mitochondria has to do all the work, its like the mom of the cell

ENTJ: physical learner, you learn best by doing more hands on things, or by figuring it out yourself, you tend to not do to well in lectures unless you’re taking detailed notes *example*
Computer class
Assignment: to create a webpage
You: “okay, so how do you do this” *looks at instructions* “okay, well, i don’t want to do this so we’ll try this instead and see what happens”

ESTJ: structured studier, you have a specific study pattrern that you stick to, most likely reading the text while taking notes, going through your notes to see if you’re missing any vital information, if you are, going back through the text to collect the information required

ENFP: visual learner, you learn best by focusing on the important things and disregarding the rest, you’ll read through the text highlighting the main points, and then focus on studying those points only

ESFP: hands on learner, you learn best when given free range to figure it out, you don’t do well reading from textbooks, and you’re probably better at computer stuff or stuff with your hands, trying to learn by the book, just doesn’t work for you *example*
Teacher: “do it this way”
You: *thinking* but this would work better, I’ll try my way *totally beats everyone else*

ENTP: Book learner, you read from the text and make mental notes about the main points, almost like leaving sticky notes all around your brain *example* 

You: *reading* okay, that seems important, better make a note of that *writes mental sticky note and sticks it in the science section* *mentally wanders away* *reads another important thing* “better make a note of that” *writes mental sticky note and leaves it in a random place*

ESTP: Hands on learner, you tend to do better when you are teaching yourself, you can learn from books, and make mental notes, but you do better when there is something physical to study, rather than theoretical *example*

You: *doing geometry homework* “okay, so, i have to remember to come back and divide this” “okay, i have to remember this number” “okay, i know the physical shape of this” *hands in the air moving around like you’re manipulating a physical object*

INFJ: book learners, you tend to read and make note of only the main points that have key importance in the topic, you don’t normally take physical notes, you tend to keep everything catalogued in your brain

ISFJ: hands on book learner, you learn by reading things and learning the theory and taking detailed notes to review and then applying that theoretical knowledge in practical applications till you have the technique perfected

INTJ: auditory learner, you tend to learn better hearing things from others, and then developing your own thoughts from that and making mental notes as well as physical notes, which tend to be in detail, you also tend to take everything people say with a grain of salt and prefer to do your own research to back up what you hear

ISTJ: hands on and auditory learner, you prefer to try things yourself until you figure it out but you’re also good at taking instruction from others and learning from that, although you’re not a fan of lectures, you tend to take a lot of notes, usually in detail

INFP: visual and hands on learner, you tend to learn well from reading and studying the text and taking explicit notes, although you can also be very hands on, and sometimes prefer to just take the lead and teach yourself, or have a person you know well who is knowledgable on the subject help you

ISFP: hands on learner, you tend to be very hands on, you prefer to teach yourself and don’t like people looking over your shoulder at your work, you also tend to write down a lot of your work, not exactly notes, more sentence fragments in a paragraph form

INTP: wikipidia counts as studying, right? jk jk

book learner, you make a lot of mental notes and only remember what you find to be vitally important to the topic

ISTP: associative learner, you associate everything with something else, if you’re reading and listening to a song, what you read will be linked to that song, if you’re listening and doodling, that doodle with forever be associated with the thing you heard

The Inquisitive Snake - Jughead x Reader

Masterlist

@idle-lanes @sgarrett49 @murderyoursoul @moonlight53

There is a request of an Archie x Reader on my inbox that I will hopefully post before the end of the weekend - I just haven’t figured out the ending in my head.

This however came to me today so let me know if you guys like it. As always thanks for reading.

Plot:
A few months have passed since Jughead Jones joined the Southside Serpents as well as becoming a student at Southside High.

His friendships still exist within Riverdale - but his new found friends at school have made it difficult to keep his life in Riverdale the same - including Betty.


I was done with the day already - I didn’t want to go to the trivial classes where I seemed to already know the answers. I didn’t want to ditch with my new friends yet either though. As much as they had accepted me as one of their own, they still didn’t know me - and I’m not one to let people in.

Part of me always liked schools - even when I lived in one. Hallways going from an intensive loud rush to a quiet and somber retreat. Classrooms that could remain silent and kept secrets hushed behind their doors. Something about a school, felt more like a home than my actual one.

So when I decided to ditch class by my lonesome - I decided to investigate the new school that seemed to have some secrets of its own.

I walked around for a bit - avoiding the random person in the hall - until I heard some faint music.

So I’m watching Wakfu and I am reallly uncomfortable with Amalia’s…. everything.

Because, according to the wiki, shes thirteen and i??? um….

First of all why does the 13 year old look like a 18 year old. Thirteen year olds aren’t…. curvy…..oh my god.

Secondly why is she dressed like that? Its… uh… super creepy and unsettling honestly… why is the teenager in this weird grass bikini thing…. like I know the adults were in simular wear but uh…shes… not an adult…

Also why does Yugo, whose 12, look like a 10 year old? Why is he so tiny?

I honestly thought he was 10 years old, because his dad and Ruel were talking about not seeing each other for 10 years, and Ruel wanted to know how his adopted son was doing.

And when I found out that Amalia and Yugo become a thing I was legitimately concerned, because I thought “Why… is… the child macking on the 18 y/o girl” but nope they are only 1 year apart and I am absolutely BAFFLED.

it’s so weird… this cartoon is full of odd design choices and stuff that makes me really flippin mad buuuuuuuut the animation is super nice and I think I’m going to keep watching it, solely for that reason haha.

Anyways…. bye

Diveal as a companion

Been thinking a lot about the Inquisitor!Vara AU and decided that Div would definitely be an archer ^-^ Gave him some scars and a very impractical, flappy armour

Tagging @lycheemilkart for relevance?? I guess just in case you’re thinking as much of this as I am x3
