one of the reasons mental illness sucks so fucking much is because people around you can literally tell you again and again that they love you, that they think you’re cool and funny, that they support you in every way, that you’re talented or intelligent, and no matter how many times they say it you’ll always cringe and shake your head and say “no, no i’m not, really” but the SECOND someone says one bad thing about you, even just once. You believe it completely.
Ok i’m kind of a huge loser and needed to draw this stuff to get it out of my system and I feel like I put enough time into it to… post it to my main blog.
I imagine Tom and Janna would have a great friendship where Janna is constantly giving Tom near heart-attacks. I actually want to draw more just general interaction stuff for them for fun, so I’ll do that later. I figured I’d post these on their own though.
My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!
(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)
In stream the other day, we started talking about an Avengers Mall AU, and now I can’t stop thinking about it, because I have so many years of bad retail stories built up in my head and non-powered AUs usually don’t work for me, but the longer I think about it, the funnier this gets.
Steve and Sam are two guys who retired from their military branches and teamed up to run an artesian bespoke candy shop. Steve has no idea half of their sales comes from the fact that Sam put the candy pulling hook in the front window and teenage girls just stand there, drooling. Sam is totally aware of this, and uses it to ALL his advantage when he’s doing the sugar work.
Bucky took a part time job at the Hot Topic across the way because hell, he was spending all his time hanging out with Sam and Steve, might as well get paid. He was the only reliable employee over the age of seventeen; he is now the manager and he’s FURIOUS about it. His staff is made up of Nico, Kamala and Sam Alexander and various people who get hired and then don’t make it through the training because Bucky glaring at you while you take register training is just SO HARD TO HANDLE. No one is sure if he’s after Sam or Steve or both.
The SHIELD crew runs a pretty decent mall restaurant, but yeah, used to be a Golden Corral and Fury reserves the right to yell “Do you see a buffet here?” at anyone dumb enough to think it still is. He doesn’t actually do it, because most of the people who are confused enough to ask are retirees who remind him of his grandma, but still. He reserves the right. Nat is a truly terrifying line cook, Maria’s front of house, and Phil’s the head waiter. Clint doesn’t actually work there, but he’ll put on an apron and belt out an impressive rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ in exchange for free food, and no one else on staff wants to do it, so he eats there A LOT.
Clint is always in the mall. In the back corridors. Hanging out in the food court. Wandering up and down the anchor store escalators. Everyone thinks he works somewhere else. No one knows where he actually works. There is a betting pool. It has been building for YEARS.
Jan runs the sort of high end boutique that has like, four outfits in two sizes on six gigantic racks. There are no prices. You do not ask how much it is. You know if you can afford it. If she likes you, you can afford it.
Thor runs the hardware store. No one knows why the hardware store is there. This is not the sort of place one would see a hardware store. Thor says he inherited it from his father, and it was there before the mall, and no one really wants to look into it. Mostly, they seem to get by on selling knives.. Big knives. Little knives. Knives as long as your arm. They get by on selling knives, because who’s buying screws at this place? Oh, right, anyone Sif TELLS to buy screws. "You need screws.“ "Oh, no, I-” "You can always use more screws.“ "Y-yes, ma'am.” She might be domming half of their customers without knowing it. The Warriors Three run the stock room. Badly.
Bruce runs the used bookstore down on the lower level where he can’t really afford the rent but the mall management like saying there’s a bookstore, and no one else is going to rent that hole, so he gets to stay, hiding in his piles and piles and piles of used books. Mostly science and history, but he does a brisk business in romance novels and murder mystery paperbacks. He likes it down there. He wishes people would stop trying to get him to come upstairs to socialize. He also kind of wishes people would stop coming down TO socialize. His cousin Jennifer runs the register and helps the customers most days, she’s very quiet and very mild mannered and wears very lumpy clothes and giant eighties style glasses, so no one recognizes her when she goes to her second job, as a crossfit instructor for the gym on the top floor. Jenn is, as they say, RIPPED. Put her in a leotard and her whole personality changes, it’s like she’s a different person.
Carol is a recovering alcoholic ex-pilot who runs the bar at the ‘bad’ chain restaurant down on the far end of the ground floor. Other than the SHIELD place or the food court, it’s the only place to eat in the mall, and honestly, you’d be better off in the food court. The food is trash, but she can mix a mean mojito and she knows every secret of every worker in the place, and she’s paid double on Saturdays because she’s her own bouncer.
Jessica Drew runs the arcade on the main floor, one of those stupid ones with 'glow mini-golf’ and games that constantly spit out tickets, you know, legalized gambling for children. It’s a chain, but the give out far too many prizes and she and her staff (Peter, Miles, Anya) would be fired if they also weren’t the highest grossing location on the eastern seaboard. They throw the best birthday parties in the state, and have a waiting list that’s like, months long.
Wanda’s shop sells… Something. No one knows what any of this stuff does. Or if it’s legal to own. But when you find something you want, OH GOD YOU REALLY WANT IT. She mostly sits and reads, and drinks tea from Hank McCoy’s tea shop.
Stephen Strange quit his job as a surgeon and retired to run a magic and joke shop. If you ask him why, he just shrugs and said he made some very bad choices. A relative somewhere oversea, Asia, Clint says it was somewhere in Asia, died and left him some sort of inheritance. So now he just sells fake rubber vomit and teaches slight of hand. Buy him a drink, and learn more than you wanted to know about card tricks. Walk into his shop, and be prepared to sit through at LEAST four card tricks before you can escape.
Greer run’s “Tigra’s Treasure Trove” on the second floor, it’s the anime and manga and gaming and comic shop. She wears cat ears and a tail. Every day. No one’s sure if she does it to bring in the otaku, or if it’s a lifestyle choice. No one wants to ask.
Tony owns the mall. Owns like a hundred malls across the country. No one knows, Obie does the day to day running of the management company, but Tony owns them. He’s mostly in it for the buying and selling, but he likes this mall. This one. He likes it here.
He has a Sharper Image type store on the top floor. It’s him and Rhodey and Pepper and Pepper will kill them both one of these days but he sells the sort of stuff you do not need but God you want it. You walk into his store and it’s all apple store chic, white and chrome and gleaming surfaces, collapseable tablets and robots and holographic projectors and all the geek chic that you want and everyone in the mall wants something from him, they’ve all got something on layaway (he only does layaway for other retail workers because he doesn’t want to keep track of this stuff) except Steve and it makes him insane. He spends far too much time trying to figure out what he can stock or create or build that will get Steve into his shop.
Pepper calls them “Steve-Grabbers,” Like 'grandma grabbers’ but designed to attract the most sincere hipster she’s ever met and she’d kill Tony over adding this stuff to stock without telling her, but it all sells. It all sells. In his desperate attempt to attract Steve, Tony misses and attracts EVERYONE ELSE.
Tried to base them on how their ults work more than anything. The Hanzo-dragons head is drawn over a crocodile skull more than anything else, and has a strong bite (go look up crocodiles bite force, they’re strong cuties), once you get caught you’re done for. Genji-dragon has narrower head, with a lot of small snarp teeth, here you won’t get any bones crushed but they’ll tear you to tiny pieces. Haven’t found anything to look up for this yet, might go read up on some predatory fish for this guy, what do you think?
And I’ll stop here, my Shimada dragon obsession is already bad as it is.
Request for RFA + Saeran when MC goes out with them somewhere but gets harassed/ hit on by random guys,, nothing reALLY serious but still uncomfortable?? (this happened to me the other day and i was like ??? why me ?? treat women right ???) THANK YOUS <3 ^^

- YANDERE YOOSUNG
-No but honestly, he gets
uncomfortable right alongside you!
-Like?? This guy walked right up to
you and started using pick up lines?
-He completely ignored the fact that
Yoosung was right there!
-The only thing he could think to do
was get you right out of there
-He’ll grab your hand and drag you
very far away from that guy
-If he tries to keep you there
-That’s when Yoosung gets s c a
-His face will get dark, his voice
will get quiet, and his stare can rival Saeran’s resting bitch face. You can
bet that this guy will n e v e r hit
on you again
-You were waiting for him after the
show when this guy came up to you
-He kept trying to use pick up lines
like, “Hey, can I get behind the scenes of your clothes?”
- that was lame im sorry lmfao
-This guy just wouldn’t let up???
-When Zen walked up behind the guy,
he heard all of the vulgar things he was suggesting
-How daRE HE SAY SUCH THINGS TO HIS
-He’ll turn this guy around, and….
-PUNCH IN THE FACE!!!!!
- is this sounding familiar? good
bc it is lmao, whAT ELSE WOULD HE DO?!?!?!?
-Makes sure this guy knows that
you’re off the market breaks his nose, never sees him again
-Why is this guy hitting on you can
he not see you’re obviously not interested in him?
-Or, like, interested in men at all?
-You’re literally holding hands with
her, walking down the street when this guy just walked right up to the two of
-Not only did he hit on you, but he
hit on her too?
-Disgust clearly written on her face
-She’s ready to just drag you away
and ignore him
-If he lays a hand on either of you
though, juDO JAEHEE
-She’ll check on you multiple times
throughout the rest of the day to make sure you’re really okay
-She didn’t like that he made you
-SHE DOESN’T CARE ABOUT HER SHE JUST
WANTS TO MAKE SURE YOU’RE OKAY MC STOP ASKING
-He should have brought you up to his
office with him
-He’s not sure why he didn’t,
perhaps because he was in a rush to get out of there?
-Just wanted to go home and spend
some time with you!!!
-When he got back down to the bottom
floor, however, he saw one of his workers flirting with you
-Did this guy have his lips…on
-Did he NOT know that you were
-He’ll walk up and wrap his arm
around your waist, and pull you closer
-This guy immediately straightens up
and freaks out
-No second chances with Mr.
-Fires him on the spot, apologizes
to you for leaving you alone and vows to never do it again also lowkey
announces to everyone in the business that you’re his don’t touch his MC
-You took him grocery shopping
-You can’t just live on chips and
- i dont care what you say
saeyoung its not possible
-He didn’t even have to look away
for this dude to walk up to you and start flirting
-Um?? Hello?? Literally standing
with my boyfriend??? Go away
-This guy refused to believe this
Saeyoung was your boyfriend and just kept going
-So, since he was so fixated on you,
Saeyoung stole his wallet and literally hacked his bank account right in front
-This guy never noticed??? Like wtf??
How do you not?
-He had enough and finally just
turned you around, and put you in between him and the front of the cart
-Steered you down the aisle and away
from the other guy, dropped the matter but at home he definitely was clingier
than he normally was
-Isn’t sure why there’s another
man’s hand on your shoulder?
-Maybe you know this guy
-When he sees the discomfort on your
face, however, he realizes
-‘Oh wait maybe MC doesn’t know
-He’ll come over and secretly pull
you close enough to him that the other guy’s hand drops off of you
-Starts a conversation with the guy
so he doesn’t notice this happening, though
-He knows you’re very attractive,
but that doesn’t mean he enjoys others touching you
- Don’t touch his MC please
- Also please don’t confront him
he doesn’t like it
-He’ll tell the guy off but he does
so in such a subtle, roundabout way that you can’t tell what even happened
-Death Stare ™
-Don’t look at his MC, don’t touch
-Don’t even BREATHE THE SAME AIR AS
-The only way someone would come up
and hit on you is if this guy was stupid, had a death wish, or you were alone
-You just so happened to be sitting,
waiting for Saeran to come back from grabbing some drinks
-When some guy came up and decided
it was a good idea to hit on you
-The pickup lines left you cringing
-Saeran could see the disgust and
how uncomfortable you were from a mile away
-Literally R I P S this guy out of the chair and away from you, throwing him
to the ground
-Pays literally no attention to him
after that, if he tries to start something he’ll glare at the guy, and he goes
RUNNINGNOT TODAY SATAN
I’m sorry but seeing Ariana Grande with her Nonna and wheeling her around in her wheelchair at the women’s march with her mom, Liz Gillies and Matt Bennett made my heart melt because FUCK, social justice? A beautifully strong and talented young woman? her pure and genuine grandmother and her badass mama and her 2 woke ass talented former co-stars all marching together? It doesn’t get better.
although weirdly enough out of all the people i can remember pete interacting with in the show, as far as i can tell, hes only taller than sonny and daniela,, which is weird to think about, he just seems really tall because he literally only stands by tiny tiny sonny
even so! he’s the perfect height,,
the perfect height difference for hugs and forehead kisses,, how lucky we all are
