*inhales deeply* SO back in 2013, I made a shitty Ace Attorney PowerPoint so my bf could have context to all the shitty AA doodles I did. I’ve dug up this relic and decided to update it with all the hip and happening characters and plot. It’s spoiler free imo, except Mia, but it’s like known by anyone who has played past case 1-1, so….

AAI slides were done primarily by @doodleblah because I never got around to playing those and she loves them. Not everyone is on here because they’re just the characters I primarily draw so sorry von Karma, Kristoph, Dahlia, Fulbright, etc

  • #1 tip: your eyebrows are always on fleek  (▰˘◡˘▰)
  • and lastly: you are not dumb. you are not worthless. you are not a waste of space, an empty void, a meaningless shell. you are loved. you are worth everything. you are so incredibly intelligent, you are utterly unforgettable, and you are breathtaking in every single way.
  • next time you look in a mirror, blow yourself a kiss and don’t worry – you’ll kill it out there today. ♥
Never forget people who taught you great things in life. Always look back and have time to appreciate them. For they are a part of you and your story. Without these good people, you’ll never be the person who you are right now. They helped you to build your confidence, they inspired you to believe in yourself. So as much as you can, continue appreciating them for all of their contribution to your positive life. Never forget people who were there when you felt you lost everything. They were blessings in your life, keep them with you. Walk with them.

Aura masterpost

This took forever but its done! This post includes the colors and correlations of an aura, a description of what they are, aswell as other small bits of information I’ve picked up over the years and how to start seeing them. If I’ve missed any colors-be sure to let me know! 💕


All beings have what is called an aura. It is an energy field around a person/animal and sometimes thing, everything gives off vibration, which some people can feel,sense, or most commonly see as a color around a person or the thing. An aura is usually about 3 feet outwards from the subject, however auras have been known to expand up to 50 feet in most often survivors of a trauma. This probably comes from the subconscious need to protect oneself from the event. Commonly there are seven “layers” or different colored sections of an aura, where some people can see more then nine. A more experienced psychic will eventually be able to see all of these colors, however the most common to see first is the first layer of aura, the Etheric aura. Each layer has a higher vibration of the one beneath it. The etheric layer seems to be the most structured and solid, and the highest layer seems to come off as a gassy or oily looking mix of color, like fog.

Like all vibration our aura can be intercepted and mix with other peoples if they touch us, or express emotions towards us, if we’re emotionally attached to someone, etc. Peoples auras are known to turn pinkish shades if they’re in love. Expand if angry, retreat if sad. If there are sparks in the aura, the person is known to have divine protection, depending on the color-white sparks usually represent angelic interference. Before one dies or if one has a near death experience their aura can turn dead white. Sparkly white can also indicate someone about to become pregnant or someone who is pregnant. A weak, small or faint aura can represent someone who is sick spiritually or physically just as a strongly vivid aura can indicate a healthy person. If someone has an intricate idea, the aura around their head can sparkle or turn bright, (Like the cartoon lightbulbs on cartoon characters!)


First layer-Etheric

-About one-quarter to two inches from the body. This has to do with the physical body and overall health of the person.

Second layer-Emotional

-One to three inches from the body. This color has to do with the overall emotions of the person.

Third layer-Mental

-Three to eight inches from the body. Associated with the thoughts and thinking process

Fourth layer-Astral

-One to one and a half feet from the body. The bridge between the physical and spiritual planes. We express here our relationships to others and the spiritual plane.

Fifth layer-The etheric template

-One and a half to two feet from the body. Here is how we manifest energy and our true personality.

Sixth layer-The Celestial layer

-Two to two and three quarters feet from the body. This is the layer where you will see the connection to the spiritual plane, and the relationship to the universe//God, universal love.

Seventh layer- Ketheric Template

-Two and a half to three feet from the body. The strongest layer of the aura. Here is our true spiritual self, our being’s color.  

[Other layers are yet to be explored or have any pinned meanings]


Seeing an aura is easier then you would expect, especially if you are already used to spiritual topics and sensing energy, or meditate on a daily basis.

The first step is being relaxed, and being aware. Meditate for a few seconds, get in your “zone” for witches or workers, this is the place you go before you complete a spell. For newbies, this is just a calming zone, until you feel detached from the physical realm enough to start.

Normally, dim lighting works best, but its all about your awareness and preferences-the best place for myself and a few others i know was always a brightly lit grocery store. Wherever is right for you works! Also, dark backgrounds can warp what color the aura truly is,making it darker-make sure the background behind the person is light,preferably white, so you can see the aura in vivid, bright color.

Most people can see aura through clothes, but its obviously easier to see it on skin, and you wont have to worry about the color of clothes warping the aura.

For some people, its hard to see an aura straight on, and for others, you can view it better from the corner of your eye.

The forehead method:

Start by staring at the person’s forehead. Relax, and start slowly unfocusing your eyes. There should be a clearish color starting to form around the person like a shield,lining the person’s body. Remember not to look directly at the colors forming or the clear vibration yet-try not to move your eyes from the unfocused position either, be as still as possible, and the clear shield will start forming into a color.

This is the best way to start seeing past the etheric aura, the outer colors of the aura closest to the skin.

The straight-on method:

Take the person’s hand or arm, place it on the light background you’ve chosen. Now focus as close as you can to their skin, without looking directly at their skin. Like the forehead method, a clear surrounding should start to form right outside of the skin. Keep focused, and eventually you will see color.

They look for the reactions in people- what kind can vary on what this person has missed out on or feels him/herself-attention, to anger, to sadness. They can evoke actions in people and make people fearless. Usually they call themselves “night owls” loving to walk cities in the dark, the fog of the night. These are the people who spray paint a city-for a political or big movement, and aren’t afraid to do so. They are often judged as scary because their personality can range so far, and is new and unusual to so many people. Magentas can have trouble with exhaustion or lack of energy because they use so much of it as well as depression-feeling like they have no emotion in general because they feel so differently, or are treated as if.

These colors are never a strong point in the aura, and are almost always mixed with others:


Indicator of an old soul. Someone who is a healer. Naturally gifted in medicine and herbs. A connection to temples. Intuitive, communication to animals and higher-beings is common. Connection to dolphins. Organization. Good at multitasking.


Loving, nurturing, extremely psychic. Young souls. Still developing. The colors in someones aura can have a pink tint if they’re in love. Pink that is clear and fully developed or a main part of an aura can suggest this person is very balanced physically and spiritually.

Copper is a color found mainly in people who work in mines.


Divine and inspired. Connection to God. Godlike-thinking. Wealthy person. Genuinely honest person. Divine protection. It is said never to trust a spiritual teacher without a golden or yellow halo around their heads, because that is a sign of a true spiritual teacher. (Look up portraits of ascended masters, or even Jesus-you’ll see they have a golden halo surrounding their heads.)


When the aura turns silver it  indicates a spiritual awakening or a new idea. Cosmic energy. Nurturing. Seen in older people , a sign of wisdom.

A negative influence or sickness if muddy or dull. Lack or emotion.
Grounded, a stable person. An intense person. This can also indicate a surviver of abuse. Long term-unforgiveness. Unable to feel guilt. Secrecy. A hard color to interpret! Be positive.


Again a hard color to interpret. This color is more like a “noise” when read. In some cultures, this is a color of death,and white appears right before the time of death in the aura,or in someone who is terminally ill or addicted to substances. In a better light, it is divine, angelic or indicates a spiritually well person. Someone peaceful,purity. Like pink this can represent powers not yet obtained or dormant or developing abilities.

If found in points along the body it can indicate sickness or an illness healing in a person.


Loneliness, developing abilities, Shyness, Depression.

Muddy colors

Colors that are muddy or foggy or seem to be darkened or not bright can be signs of instability or manifesting thoughts, the bad ones. These colors should be read very carefully, remember that its not always the bad reasoning first. For example, black can show up in spots of an aura of someone working through bad emotion, black taking the light to manifest and transform it into something good,  or consume it,black can actually be PROTECTING someone from negative energies.  As muddy colors are mostly portrayed in a negative light, the descriptions are going to face that direction aswell,but remember not everyone suffering is a bad person,they’re just going through something tough like we all do eventually. These colors are not usually strong points, and show as spots in the aura.

  • Muddy brown:
  • Selfishness, anxiety,paranoia. Low self esteem. Material greed.
  • Muddy pink:
  • Immaturity, dishonesty
  • Muddy Lavender/Purples:
  • Spiritual greed, entitlement,humility,alcoholism, Arrogance.
  • Muddy orange:
  • Suffering from addictive behaviours or vanity, worry. Anxiety
  • Muddy green:
  • Resentment, not owning up to actions, playing victim,mistrust or uncertainty.
  • Muddy yellow:
  • Mostly found in students. Someone working too hard,trying to learn everything at once.
  • Muddy blue
  • Blocked perception, worry,rushing
  • Muddy turquoise/teal
  • Struggling with their life purpose. Thinking they will never amount to what they need to be spiritually. 
  • Muddy red:
  • Anger or someone who is being bullied.
  • Muddy Gold
  • Indicates a working alchemist.
Season 2 Klance and Shallura Analysis

Alrighty so this is another one of those voltron prediction/theory/rant its basically an analysis of some parts of season 2 not all bc that would take me forever but just a few key parts (aka the key to my heart Klance okay bye). So grab a drink because this is an essay folks that I spent way too much time on than I should have. Let’s begin shall(ura) we? (I hate myself)

So I’m gonna start with a very good and very platonic (in my opinion) relationship, which is K//allura. Okay okay, they have so much potential to be bffs its exciting.

First off, I took the whole Galra Keith and Allura tension as a message the creators wanted to convey to the viewers about judging someone merely by their race. Honestly I really love it when tv shows, especially kids shows, integrate bigger ideas like racism into their stories. Its subtle yet satisfying and I really really appreciated this particular scene with Keith and Allura.

Allura is describing her hatred for the Galra which is basically her hatred toward a part of Keith that he can’t even control. He never chose to be Galra, it’s just in his blood. And obviously that hurts him because its a part of who he is:((

Like ugh this is so sweet guys. So as you know from the title of this, I don’t ship K//allura at all, but this scene was very special to me in a much different way than how I feel from a romantic interaction. Like this is a genuine moment between two characters that are haunted by the same group, the Galra. Keith is part Galra, he has a part of the enemy inside of him which is probably causing inner turmoil maybe even self-hatred within him. And Allura as we know hates the Galra for killing her entire civilization. These two have a deep character development from this scene alone. We see that Allura has matured from being bitter toward Keith for being Galra to understanding that a person should not be judged by their blood but who they truly are. Also we see that Keith has accepted the fact that yes he may have a part of the enemy within him, but that does not mean he has to be anything like them. He is also pretty stand-off ish and doesn’t like opening up necessarily. He’d much rather keep to himself (other than Shiro), but he is finally opening up to someone else as well. He forgives Allura immediately despite how offensive her bias opinion was towards him. I just love Keith. 

So these two are super close now or should be? Which is pretty awesome considering… Keith is super close to Shiro too. SO now he’s close to both Shiro and Allura who are both, might I remind you all, much older than would be appropriate for him to have a romantic relationship with. Anywho, this reeks of space parents and an angsty teen.

Which then leads to Shallura and why I believe it is pointing toward canon woot woot love these goobers. Alright so I’m solely focusing on a few scenes in particular where my heart was pounding and my eyes watering and I was clutching my heart while screaming at my computer screen. The feels man the feels. 

I just about swooned at this. Like these underrated moments are what really get me. Like I love the whole Shiro taking Allura’s hand and telling his wife to get some rest, that got me feeling some sort of way. But this scene guys. In the heat of battle, Shiro is concerned for Allura. He’s basically saying “I wish I could be there to take care of her but Coran you have to do it for me.” I cannot guys I cannot.

She could’ve called for anyone else. Was it Keith? NOPE IT WAS SHIRO, PEOPLE!!

Never forget honestly. This is the face of a broken man. I have never seen Shiro more distressed and this pic doesn’t do it justice but when you watch this scene his eyes are glistening like he’s about to cry. The calm, collected leader Shiro is on the verge of tears? omg I can’t. 

Honestly this is my weakness. When a character gets hurt and another character goes ballistic and rages. Like Shiro is so determined to kick ass in this scene and avenge Allura. End me. 

For Shallura, they both have an understanding that they need each other. They are each other’s support especially considering they both are the leaders and are the older ones of the group. They help bear each other’s responsibility which is much different than Klance’s dynamic. For Klance it is much more playful and focused on chemistry. And also because they are younger it is much more naive and afraid. Both Keith and Lance obviously care for each other but they try not to show it especially when the other is present. They are self-conscious and afraid of what the other will think, that the other doesn’t feel the same way. Shiro and Allura, however, both know that they care for each other and they aren’t afraid to express it through calling each other’s name during battle and other small gestures like that.

Which I forgot to mention that everyone is freaking out over a simple hug between Allura and Keith but like have you noticed that both Klance and Shallura have not had a proper hug yet? Ummmm is this a slow burn fic or… Seriously tho, I’ve watched plenty of shows and animes (I’m shameless) to know that usually the canon couple does not have that special hugging and seal-the-deal scenes quite so early in the series because all the anticipation builds up until the perfect scene is created. I swear a tender Klance and Shallura moment is coming I swear. 

Which then leads to my mains, Klance. I just have to admit that one of the many reasons I love these two is because of the fact that Keith and Lance are like my fav characters of all time. And I can relate to both of them at the same time idk. Anyway, back to what’s important: evidence of canon.

So… Do I really need to show these? Like these scenes do not need further analysis it just reeks of dorks-in-love-who-don’t-know-they’re-in-love-with-each-other-and-who-don’t-know-that-the-other-is-in-love-with-them. Man I love Klance. 

So instead let’s over-analyze a few other scenes…

“Babe I thought you would have my back.”

“First you forget the bonding moment now this.”

Look this one is a stretch lol but just look at Keith’s face. When you watch this scene, Keith goes from his signature annoyed and irritated look to a betrayed and frustrated look. Maybe that’s just me, but aside from that, he doesn’t necessarily look pissed off, his face changes from his usual pissy look to something much different. Obviously what Lance says does calm him down enough not to yell back at him, but he also looks frustrated because no one understand him or his secret about his past with the Blade of Mamora and all that good junk at this point. I think it is especially bothering him that he can’t just upfront say what he is hiding, and instead he knows he is looking like a fool in front of them (and especially Lance). 

Body language is important. Keith turns around as not to face them, I think he is hurt because obviously this whole situation is important to him but not even Lance seems to understand him. And I seriously think Keith and Lance have like this weird mutual understanding usually. Like ya they fight I get that, but usually they kinda get what the other is trying to get at I feel, idk maybe thats just me. 

Let’s take a moment to appreciate how blue Lance’s eyes are in this… I love my son…

So like if you look closely at this scene you notice that when Lance is making eye contact with Keith, Keith has his typical “I hate you Lance but really I don’t but I’m gonna pretend like I do” face. But right when Lance looks away Keith actually looks sad and kinda hurt. Out of everyone, he hates that Lance is the one revealing his flaws, and even he knows its true. Lance stop insulting your husband. He’s actually sensitive about what you think of him:(((

Uhhh lowkey I think Keith is just as insecure as Lance is, but he just doesn’t show it… Oh the Klangst!

And another thing we get to see in Season 2 is that Lance is showing ALOT of concern of Keith’s wellbeing which is pretty big if you ask me because season 1 was basically Pining!Keith worried about his boyf. Now we get to see some worried Lance.

Honestly, like I mentioned before, the creators are going for a slow burn. And both Shallura and Klance definitely have their little hints and subtle moments that are very easily missed. But that’s the point. If it’s too obvious then the ending won’t be as powerful, the couples won’t be as special. Also, the development of both of these couples is going slow but very well thought out and I actually appreciate it a lot. I know for a fact K//allura won’t be canon because their interaction is too straight-up(lol) for it to be canon. It could be said as “predictable” but idk I just get a total brotp vibe from them nothing more, plus if they were hinting at canon for them, they wouldn’t have them hug so soon. Also their reactions and facial expressions toward the hugs and touches would be very different. It wasn’t tender like the Bonding Moment™ or the Shallura hand grab™. Facial expressions and reactions are key! Keith looked indifferent when Allura fell into his arms and their hug was sweet yes but it wasn’t hesitant and nervous like a couple who just discovered their feelings for one another would react. It was a hug between two people who recognize their bond. It was a strong bond yes, between two lovers? no I don’t think so. Allura, herself even confirmed how she now viewed the paladins as her family and it just felt to much like a familial bond I couldn’t see anything more to it. If Kallura was to be canon they would have more subtle moments than in-your-face big moments. Little details in the way Keith or Allura would look, or in the background they would be gazing at each other (*cough* like Keith does to Lance *cough*) It’s the little things that count, remember that.

The only ship I was concerned that would be canon was Sh//eith, because they have an obvious bond that is much different than everyone else. But ever since the “Shiro, you’re a bro to me” happened, it basically killed any chance of it happening. Which in my opinion is much better because Klance and Shallura have so much potential and their stories can expand and be written so well. As it is, the creators are doing a really good job at unraveling their stories slowly but just enough as to give the viewers hope which is the goal usually for tv shows. They try to make the shippers suffer sometimes *sigh*. 

Anywho, if you read up to this point thanks for listening to me rambling about space parents and space ranger partners lol! I loved season 2 because it revealed a lot about Keith not only through the obvious backstories and blade of mamora stuff but also through his interactions. And yes Keith is my fav lol. Anyways, I am 99.9% sure Klance and Shallura are gonna be canon but by no means am I saying you shouldn’t ship what you want. You do you, folks. Ship on and enjoy the show!

The 5 Senses of Attraction

Romantic chemistry is all about warm, gooey feelings that gush from the deepest depths of the heart…right? Not quite. Actually, the real boss behind attraction is your brain, which runs through a very quick, very complex series of calculations when assessing a potential partner. 

We know. The idea of so much of our attraction being influenced by chemicals and evolutionary biology can seem cold and scientific rather than romantic. But the next time you see someone you like, try to appreciate how your entire body is playing matchmaker to decide if that beautiful stranger is right for you.

After all, just because the calculations are happening in your brain doesn’t mean those warm, fuzzy feelings are all in your head. In fact, all five of your senses play a role, each able to vote for (or veto) a budding attraction.

#1. Sight

The eyes are the first components in attraction. Many visual beauty standards vary between cultures and eras, but signs of youth, fertility and good health, such as long lustrous hair, or smooth, scar-free skin are almost always in demand because they’re associated with reproductive fitness.

#2. Smell

The nose’s contribution to romance is more than noticing perfume or cologne. It’s able to pick up on natural chemical signals known as pheromones. These not only convey important physical or genetic information about their source but are able to activate a physiological or behavioral response in the recipient.

#3. Hearing

Our ears also determine attraction. Studies have shown that heterosexual men prefer females with high-pitched, breathy voices and wide formant spacing, correlated with smaller body size, while heterosexual women prefer low-pitched voices with a narrow formant spacing that suggest a larger body size.

#4. Touch

And not surprisingly, touch turns out to be crucial for romance. In one experiment, not realizing the study had begun, participants were asked to briefly hold a coffee, either hot or iced. Later, the participants read a story about a hypothetical person and were asked to rate their personality. Those who had held the hot cup of coffee perceived the person in the story as happier, more social, more generous, and better-natured than those who had held the cup of iced coffee, who rated the person as cold, stoic and unaffectionate.

#5. Taste

If a potential mate has managed to pass all these tests, there’s still one more: the infamous first kiss, a rich and complex exchange of tactile and chemical cues, such as the smell of one’s breath and the taste of their mouth. This magic moment is so critical that a majority of men and women have reported losing their attraction to someone after a bad first kiss.

Once attraction is confirmed, your bloodstream is flooded with norepinephrine, activating your fight or flight system. Your heart beats faster, your pupils dilate, and your body releases glucose for additional energy — not because you’re in danger but because your body is telling you that something important is happening. To help you focus, norepinephrine creates a sort of tunnel vision, blocking out surrounding distractions, possibly even warping your sense of time, and enhancing your memory. This might explain why people never forget their first kiss.
