anonymous asked:

how long did it take for you to come up with the story for your nuzlocke? Did you start planning before or after you began playing the game, and how much of it transformed during and after you played? Were you designing the art for the comic while you wrote the story, or were they two separate stages? No pressure, I was just wondering and thought I'd ask! Your comic is fantastic!

Honestly, I did like letting my mind wander while I was playing the game, but I wasn’t super concerned with having a solid plot at that point. Most of my ideas during that time were just for fun, like a bunch of “what-if”s.

I didn’t start seriously plotting until after I’d finished the game, using those initial ideas as jumping off points. Most of the original ideas I had while playing changed pretty drastically by the time I was drawing up the first pages, tbh, either by being completely dropped (Roman was originally an adult taking the league challenge as a rite of passage) or by being reworked a ton to fit the rest of the plot (I always imagined Talia chasing after Roman to bring him back to Vaniville, but her motives for doing that have been totally rewritten).

Art and writing were definitely done simultaneously! In fact there are very, very early sketches of Roman in my files before I even had the idea of Vacants as a story point, haha. Hell, my early sketches weren’t even drawn with the thought that Burn Away was going to be a full-fledged comic. Originally, I was toying with the idea of an illustrated script kind of story.

Oh! and thank you so much!

anonymous asked:

how do you write???????? songs??? i mean, i personally have taken voice lessons for 6 years and do concerts and everything but i cant write for shit? at all? and your songs are so fuckgind AMAZING i want to cry; what's your secret??

this is way too nice omg thank you so much thank u for jerking off my ego boner 

if you’re trying to get into songwriting, a really good exercise is to take songs and remix them!!! ie, mash them up with another song, play around with the melody, change the tempo or message of the song. i always like to challenge myself and make little tweaks to my favorite songs and it helps me understand song structure/melodies a little better

i’m constantly humming to myself and usually the base melody i come up with is pretty boring so i play around with it (like how i’ve described in the previous p) until i come up with an original melody that i’m happy with!! or sometimes i have a story in my head i make up with then go from there. lyrics come really easy when i have the melody already but occasionally the lyrics come to me first and then i use the vibe to help write the melody

i wrote more on this here :)

100 Ways to Say ‘I Hate You’

I saw a post about 100 ways to say ‘I love you’, so I thought I’d make the anti-version if it doesn’t exist already. Roleplayers, send these to each other for angst reasons!

  15. “I could have been doing so much better than wasting my time with you.”
  16. “You’re a sick bastard, you know that?”
  17. “I don’t care.”
  18. “Go ahead, leave. Don’t worry about coming back.”
  19. “You’re such a piece of shit.”
  20. “I didn’t think you could be any more of a shithead, but you just proved me wrong.”
  21. “You’re so stupid.”
  22. “Why do I waste my time with you?”

Hey Jack! I'm sure you've had a ton of people telling you this already, but there's a problem with how Hiveswap's default screen resolution works (which was why it was tiny and off center when you played it) if you change the screen resolution in the game's settings, it'll record way easier. I loved your first episode of HS by the way! I just finished the game this morning and I know you'll love it the whole way through.

Yeah it should be fixed for next time :) thanks to everyone for the tips!

Cost me 2 working days of pay and tell your supervisor I'm a liar, ok let's play.

So I decided to change my internet/cable provider. I had a date and time scheduled for the change and the new provider never showed up. It was an early morning appointment so I called out of work. They missed the 8-10am window, I called customer service and they told me they were running an hour late. Fast forward to 4pm no one showed, I called customer service back and they told me that the technicians showed up to my residence, couldn’t reach me and they called my home and cell phone multiple times to no avail. So we reschedule, for tomorrow at the same time. And guess what? Another no show, but they told customer service the same thing that they banged on my door and retired calling me multiple times. After jumping through hoops I finally get the warehouse number and where the technicians are based out of and reach a supervisor who told me that his “He runs a tight ship and all the guys he works with wouldn’t lie to him” and went on the accuse me of fishing for discounts or free service by creating problems. I try to tell him no one called me and no one came to my house and I have the cameras on my house to prove it. But it wasn’t having any of it. Well, now it’s the weekend. So rather than do fun things on the weekend my hatred fuels me to print out multiple copies of my home and phone records and make full 12 hour copies of my home surveillance cameras. After talking to upper management for a few days the following week and letting my displeasure well known, I send in my “courtroom like evidence” (their words). After some digging management finds something interesting. Turns out those trust worthy technicians have a habit of telling dispatch that their earliest appointments are not home, so they can come in a few hours late. At the end of the day I got 2 deadbeats fired, their supervisor wrote me a letter apologizing for the way he handled the situation and corporate gave me 6 months free internet/cable and 24 months of premium movie channels.

So, like, wild thought folks

When Cassian said “it would take more than that to kill me.” And Elain, ever joyful, said it wouldn’t, do you think she saw the battle with Hybren play out, with his wings breaking and the King coming to kill him, with no one there to save him.

Do you think she saw that, and then saw the grief Nesta would go through, and tried to play a way to change the future.

Do you think, Azriel may have guessed and given her truth-teller.

Do you think, the only reason she knew where to go on that battlefield, was because she’d seen his dead body lying their in a vision.

Do you think she somehow found a way to make sure Nesta was with him, just in case she didn’t make it in time, so Cassian wouldn’t die alone.

Because I do

Until your mid-twenties, you’re still growing up mentally. It’s fair to say there’s a bigger difference between twenty and twenty-five than between twenty-five and forty in terms of who you are, how you relate to your work, and what you want out of it.  Playing Pennywise will change my life and career forever. It’s going to change my path. And who knows where that path might lead me?

aisawriter  asked:

I love your art! A question occurd to me as I saw your family pic. What do you think the relationship between Ginny and Teddy is like? I feel like there isn't much about that out there.

I love love love love the thought of Ginny and Teddy interaction! I imagine lots of scenes for them.

  • Ginny holding a 2-years-old Teddy when he’s crying. She tought Harry how she hold the baby to calm him down when she wasn’t even a mother yet.
  • Ginny explaining for a 7-years-old Teddy why Harry was grumpy and didn’t want to keep playing with him. “You see, he has a lot in his mind right now but if you promise not to let me win, I can play with you.”
  • Ginny changing James’s diaper and Teddy looking curiously at both of them, wondering out loud where his mother was.
  • Teddy asking to everyone “how babies happen?” and Ginny being the one who frankly tells him “it’s a thing called sex.”
  • Teddy actually arguing with someone when hearing bad things about Holyhead Harpies.
  • Ginny giving him some advice about Victoire because “Harry will just advise you to save the world, cuz that’s how he got me. But there are simpler ways to do this.

and it goes on

Bill Skarsgård Knows Playing Pennywise Changed His Career Forever
His performance in this year's adaptation of Stephen King's It is a turning point for the young actor.

There’s a behind-the-scenes video of Bill being fabulous and handsome on his photoshoot. In other words: YAAAAAAASSSSSS DADDY. You will definitely want to click that link and watch.

Via Esquire Magazine.

yall are missing out on the most significant part of holding to the ground.  the entire production plays with impermanence, with constant change, growth, maturity, very specifically the 2016 revival with the block of furniture.  the use of grey props that are used as tables, couches, beds, footrests, etc. symbolise a group of people that really isn’t settling, the tkf is chaotic in every sense of the word and the recycling of the same materials for different purposes is intentional.

aside from the obvious relation to the characters’ jewish heritage, it reflects the men.  malleable, changing, adapting, and by something bad / more raquetball most of the characters have overcome their more prominent flaws.  whizzer is smitten with martin and pays attention to him, marvin is appreciative of whizzer as a person instead of just the role he wants him to fulfil.  otherwise, we have jason, whose arc revolves around coming to terms with whizzer & death in general, mendel, who arguably completed his own arc in act one, the neighbours who don’t have a separate narrative, and trina.

trina has been trying to hate whizzer since she broke down in act one.  he’s the person marvin left her for and i think it really adds to her complexity as a character if we acknowledge that her love for marvin (& also her pride) may have clouded her judgement, that is, i’m sure she wants to believe that whizzer seduced marvin to the ‘gay lifestyle’ instead of marvin running away from trina.  they were definitely in love with the idea of each other - trina with a rich, smart husband and marvin with his heterosexual wife.  whizzer took that from her.

the reality is that whizzer and trina have so much in common.  their relationship hasn’t been touched on deeply enough - these two people have both put up with what is downright abuse in trina’s case, and posessive condescension (possibly more) in whizzer’s.  they both went into a relationship with marvin expecting something that they didn’t receive, they’ve been put down and yelled at by marvin - that spousal treatment can be awfully traumatic.  whizzer’s experience as an effimate gay man & trina as a heterosexual cis woman also allow a degree, not a lot, but a degree of similarity in terms of the way they interact with the gender expectations of the 1970s.

and here we have holding to the ground.  trina trying not to care about this man who marvin loves.  this is her growth song.  she sings about what she wanted, what she has, the fact that everything keeps changing and she can’t catch a fucking break.  the props that could be anything, really - tables, chairs, footstools, buildings, even - are replaced with what is undeniably a hospital bed and a corresponding table, an iv drip, a literal hospital armchair.  you know they could have at least used a grey block for the chair or the bed maybe, but they don’t.  this isn’t something that can be avoided, this isn’t something that can be changed or become better.  trina can’t see the world as black and white anymore, it’s not her versus whizzer, it’s not her marvin versus his marvin, it’s not the baddies versus the goodies.  the perminance has arrived, the crushing weight of growing up.  falsetoos is really out here telling us that growing up doesn’t happen when you’re thirteen, or eighteen, or twenty-one, or whatever.  it’s something that happens throughout your whole life
