pretty proud of it though :)

@actualhumansunshine mentioned in their tags that I’d picked the creepy bits of the Closer to the Light video, and that gave me an idea for an even creepier gifset.

I just think this video would make for a great horror movie, in which Niall accepts to stay in this super creepy house off season, and slowly gets consumed by all the dark memories still trapped in those walls. Possibly, he gets possessed by the spirit of one of the old inhabitants. He stops going out, stops answering the phone, he just spends his days walking the dusty hallways and strumming songs he’s never heard on his guitar, trying to understand why they sound so familiar.

When the house staff comes back to prepare everything for the summer, Niall’s not there, nor is there any trace of his ever being here, apart from his guitar, lying on the couch, covered in dust.

Some more headcanons about Peter growing up on Yondu’s ship

part 1

  • Yondu not having any idea what Terrans eat so he tries to give Peter like, raw meat and stuff, and Peter is disgusted and Yondu is confused (“What’s wrong, boy? It’s fresh! Eat it!”). Though Peter is even more bummed out when he finds out there’s no McDonalds in space.
  • Peter wanting video games but Yondu telling him flying an M-ship is way more exciting than any video game (“All right, if it is, let me fly one!” “You’re too young to fly, you’ll crash.” “No, I won’t! If I can’t play games, at least let me try!” “I said no!” “But Yonduuuuu!” “You’re an annoying little bugger, you know that?” *grumbling and muttering* “All right, follow me, you can give Tulk’s old ship a try, but you put one mark on it- one mark, one spill on the dash- and you don’t get to give it another shot til you’re fourteen.” “KRAGLIN! YONDU’S GONNA LET ME FLY!”)
  • Peter trying to tell the Ravagers about Halloween, but they just don’t get it, and when he scavenges the materials to dress up as a pirate, they don’t notice anything different (except Kraglin, who says, “Nice hat, Pete,” when a rather deflated Peter walks by in full costume).
  • Members of other factions sometimes thinking Kraglin is Peter’s dad, and Yondu getting lowkey pissed off about it (“Course that’s not his dad, ya moron! Quill, get back on the ship and stop causing trouble.”)
  • Kraglin losing his blaster and freaking out cause he can’t find his spare and Peter says, “Just go ask Yondu for one!” and Kraglin is like, “He’ll get mad!” and Peter is confused because apparently, “I do it all the time whenever I lose something, he doesn’t care,” which is weird, because last time Kraglin lost something and went to Yondu to see if he knew where it was, Yondu snapped at him, “If you don’t keep an eye on your stuff, it’s not my problem when you can’t find it.”
  • The crew getting new communication devices and Peter texting with Kraglin all the time so Yondu gets suspicious and is always nosing on Peter’s end (“Who you writing to all the time, boy? You planning a mutiny?”)
  • Peter going through puberty and everyone on the whole ship making fun of his voice cracking up to the point where he ends up getting in a fight with someone because he’s so sick of it and Yondu has to drag them apart and scold them both for being immature, but as he’s walking away, he imitates Peter too.
  • Peter getting his hands on an electric guitar and keeping half the crew from sleeping with his late-night shredding until Yondu finally starts locking Peter’s guitar in his cabin every night at 11:00 (“Kraglin, Yondu said I’m not allowed to practice sick riffs past 11:00…” *Kraglin internally fist-pumps* “Aww, sorry Pete.”)
  • Peter going on his first solo mission and Yondu being on edge the whole time, which means he’s extraordinarily irritable toward the crew, so they all come to dread Peter’s missions because Yondu’s so unpleasant while he’s gone.
  • Peter getting arrested on some planet and Yondu bailing him out the next morning. Peter’s mad at Yondu for not doing it the night he got in, but according to Yondu, every Ravager should spend at least a couple nights of their life in jail, and though he doesn’t say it, he’s pretty proud of Peter for having done something that could get him time.

There is a strange sort of unspoken theory that once a woman has been raped, sex is no longer a viable option for her. Sex has been replaced by trauma, fear, pain, and anxiety. I’m not saying this is never the case. Every survivor’s story and experience is different, but too often the assumption is that if you have been raped, you are sexually broken and forever unfixable. That sort of discourse is not healthy or empowering or even sympathetic. What I want to say is what I wish I had been told: rape is not a form of sex, it is a form of assault. Sex feels good. Assault is traumatizing. It is possible for sex to exist after rape because they are different experiences, just like it’s possible for you to still enjoy going out to eat even if you got food poisoning once. You might never go back to that restaurant again, but it doesn’t mean you will get food poisoning every time you go out.


Admittedly, I don’t know what sex before rape is like. I lost my virginity to rape at 14. People are willing to give a lot of guidance on what a survivor is supposed to do after her rape. Do not change clothes. Do not shower. Have someone you trust take you to the hospital. Report it immediately to law enforcement. Reach out to loved ones, find a therapist, become an advocate for other survivors. But these are the things nobody told me about sex after rape:

1. Nobody tells you that you’ll feel guilty the first time you have a crush on a guy after your rape. Aren’t you supposed to hate men now? I mean, ugh, penises are evil and one ruined your life. You shouldn’t even be thinking about boys. That’s what got you in trouble in the first place. (Oh, hey rape culture, how’d you get here?)

2. Nobody tells you that you’ll be called a tease when you draw the line at making out. Even though you’re pretty proud of yourself for this minor victory on your path to regaining any confidence in expressing your sexuality, some people will think you’re a prude because you won’t take off your pants.

3. Nobody tells you that the first time you do take off your pants in front of a potential partner you’ll cry almost immediately and put them back on, leaving without an explanation. You’ll feel embarrassed and stupid and you’ll wonder if you’re ever going to be capable of intimacy ever again.

4. Nobody tells you that masturbation is a healing practice (OK, maybe your therapist suggested it once or twice) and that realizing you’re capable of sexual satisfaction after rape is an incredible, powerful feeling. Sometimes it takes a while to feel wholly reunited with your body in this way, and you’re allowed to take all the time you need. Sexual exploration is a journey, not a destination.

5. Nobody tells you that your PTSD symptoms will be scoffed at. Your boundaries will be called “arbitrary” and you will be accused of “wielding sex as a weapon” and “putting yourself on a pedestal.” Someone should tell you that people who say these things are the worst type of people to be around. They have no right to make you feel ashamed, but they will. If they have the potential to get angry about the choices you make about what you do with your body, they are not worth your time or energy or thought or love. But nobody tells you that.

6. Nobody tells you that the ‘rape talk’ will be a thing that has to happen before any romantic relationship gets too serious. Nobody lets you know that immature men will freak out and refer to your rape as “baggage” when they cut things off. And unfortunately, nobody mentions that some men will hold your hand and weep with you when you tell them, because they can’t believe anyone would be capable of hurting you.

7. Nobody tells you that there are men who are patient and kind. Some men will listen and support you and they will read and research and seek to understand. They will ask you what you like and what you don’t like, they will be explicit about their concerns, and they will treat you with respect and dignity.

8. Nobody tells you that the first few times you try sex again it might not go well. You might have a panic attack or a flashback, and you might scream or shake or cry or throw up or all of the above. What they should tell you is that the right partner will stroke your back or make you tea or hold your hair back for you. He’ll leave if he’s asked and he’ll keep his phone on him so you can talk if you need to.

9. Nobody tells you that the first time you successfully, enjoyably have sex again is empowering, and freeing, and overwhelming. Even if it only lasts two minutes, it will feel like an enormous victory. You will be happy in a way you weren’t sure you would be happy again.

10. Nobody tells you that it doesn’t work that way every time. PTSD isn’t cured by one blissful experience, and anxiety is a bitch. Sometimes you will burrow down deep in your comforter and wish you could just be NORMAL and have NORMAL sex like a NORMAL person. And it is frustrating. But you will remember that one bad experience does not negate your ability to have future good experiences. And you will drink your tea and feel better.

11. Nobody tells you that people are capable of loving you after you’ve been raped, and that you are capable of loving back. You are allowed to give yourself to someone completely. Likewise, you are allowed to hold back. You are allowed to be fearful but you are also allowed to trust again. Your healing process is your own and regardless of how you get there, know that as long as you are taking care of yourself, nobody has any right to tell you differently.

12. Nobody tells you that just because he’s the first boy you slept with since your rape doesn’t mean you have to fall in love with him. You don’t “owe” anyone else your love or happiness or body. You can be thankful and appreciative and comfortable, but if he’s not “the one,” don’t settle just because he treated you better than your rapist.

You’re going to have good days and bad days. You’re going to have good sex and bad sex. But you’re still alive, and I just thought maybe someone should tell you.

Hi, I spent way too long on this and don’t know how to use perspective blurring correctly; I also traded in my usual bratty, sort of cute Anti for a creepier version. This isn’t my art for the art event either, just something I started a few days ago.

Why Adrien is Pissing Me Off With Every New Episode - Riposte Season 2 Episode 5 Initial Overview - SPOILER ALERT

Let me just start off by saying Kagami is a great character and a formidable villain. Her design is beautiful and she’s incredibly humble. However. Her presence has now made me aware of a side of Adrien that makes me genuinely irritated. His “naive” side.

Adrien seems to suspect Kagami as Ladybug initially. As soon as he sees her face (and her ring) the pink sparkles in the background come up which signifies romantic interest (I think). Even after he finds out that Kagami isn’t Ladybug, he’s still captivated by Kagami. So why does this piss me off?

Welp. Because Adrien is giving mixed signals all over the place, and Marinette is my favorite character. He’s slow dancing with Marinette, making her presents, flirting with her as Chat Noir. Yet somehow she’s still “just a friend”. The amount of times he said “Marinette is just a good friend” in this episode made me want to rip my hair out. On the flip side, when she’s Ladybug he’s holding her hand, sniffing her, taking the fall for her, blowing her kisses (as Adrien).

In the Origins episode, we find out that the reason Adrien fell in love with Ladybug initially was due to her confidence, superhero prowess, her ability to fight, and her passion for justice. This has worried me from the beginning because we know that more miraculous holders will be coming, and any superhero can possess these qualities. I’m worried that Adrien is attracted to these qualities in a person rather than actually being in love with Ladybug (whereas I could argue that Marinette may actually be in love with Adrien).

Then we get introduced to Kagami who is a better fighter than Ladybug, just as passionate, and maybe even a bit more confident. She’s checking off all the points on Adrien’s list (and let’s not forget his love for dark hair and bright eyes).

There was a moment at the end where Kagami and Adrien are shaking hands and gazing at each other like Marinette and Adrien usually do, and I started really liking Kagami while also becoming increasingly annoyed with Adrien. Especially with the added factor that Marinette saw the whole interaction.

Innocent or not, Adrien is leading Marinette on with his actions. Even though he claims she’s just a friend he acts like she’s more (toward Ladybug and Marinette). I can’t believe I am saying this, but when Marinette got upset with Adrien’s “just a good friend” comment, I wanted her to give up on him and move on. As Ladybug she’s always rejecting Chat Noir because she’s in love with Adrien. She’s even stated that she would consider Chat Noir, but she’s completely committed to Adrien - her actions and words match up. At this point, I’m so ready to meet Luka. Maybe when Marinette’s no longer an option Adrien will wake the hell up.

All I need from Adrien is a verbal admittance that he may like more than one girl. And I don’t care if that’s Ladybug and Kagami or Ladybug and Marinette or Marinette and Ladybug and Kagami - I just want him to stop being so oblivious to his own feelings. I 100% blame his parents for this emotional stagnancy, but that’s another conversation.


Other noteworthy things:

1. Gabriel is a horrible fucking person. Worst Father ever, I swear. He knows Kagami is after Adrien and still spurs her on. Have some concern for your son Gabriel ugh. (Edit: Yes I know he initially tried to divert Riposte’s attention, but since I know he can take away powers and such, I still think he’s not a good Father).

2. Marinette “beats” Adrien in fencing practice, and I’m 88% sure he was going easy on her (I’m not a fluent French speaker). Why? Adrien beats Kagami (a professional), but Ladybug has extreme difficulty fighting Kagami. Though, this could be because Kagami had extra powers and Ladybug isn’t confident in her fencing skills. (Edit: Nope I just rewatched and Marinette did legitimately get two points on him. Kagami and Adrien have a conversation on how one point from an amateur doesn’t make Kagami, not a champion).

3. Chat Noir was 100% needed in this episode, and can I just say that these past two episodes he has really stepped up. I really felt like Ladybug needed him and I was more than impressed with his contribution. Also, Chat Noir was super successful with hiding his injured ankle, I’m really proud of him (though I’m pretty sure Ladybug fixed it with her powers).

4. I said it once, but it’s worth mentioning again, Kagami is just wonderful. Her design is beautiful, she’s not a bitch or a liar. I still don’t want her to get with Adrien AT ALL, but I look forward to seeing her in future episodes. Hopefully, she’s not a recurring villain (I kind of got that vibe considering how crazy strong she was).

5. Do Tikki and Plagg know the identities of both Chat Noir and Ladybug? I’m so suspicious of them…

6. The Ladrien was cute but tainted by my newfound aggression toward Adrien “She’s Just a Friend” Agreste. The indirect kisses were cute. Oh, and the Adrien saving Ladybug moment in which he twisted his ankle was also cute. It was all cute.


Let me know what you think, and remember: just two/three more episodes until The Battle of the Queens; AKA Chloe somehow obtaining a miraculous.

Supernova - A Light Yagami Analysis

((Yo. This is casuistor reposting my old analyses on a new blog because tumblr has literally terminated my old account twice in two days for shits and giggles, so here we are. In any case, I’m hoping this time there won’t be any hitches and this will stay up for everyone’s perusal. Enjoy!))

So the inevitable has finally happened. Stars aligned and Kim finally did something productive and voila, I have written a character analysis for Light Yagami of Death Note. Love him or hate him, the chessmastering bastard is a damn compelling protagonist.

The reason I’m writing this is because 1) Light’s my favorite character of the series and 2) I’ve found that there’s a pervasive belief that an underlying psychiatric disorder is what leads him to do what he does. I’m not going to waste time being diplomatic about my thoughts on theories like these. These interpretations are not only completely unnecessary, the implicit argument that extreme violence must have a root cause in mental illness is unbelievably toxic. I’ve said this on a different post, but this point bears repeating as I cannot say this with enough emphasis. Under extraordinary circumstances, people can be driven to commit heinous crimes and Light is not exempt.

So what am I trying to accomplish with this post? Well, we’re going to do a thought experiment together. Occam’s razor says that the theory that makes the least amount of assumptions is the most likely to be correct. While that certainly isn’t true of all explanations, I wanted to give this approach a spin. We’re going to put DSM-5 away and we’re going to analyze canon together. This analysis is by no means a complete analysis of Light’s character.  It’s geared specifically towards understanding Light at the start of canon.  We’re going to see if we can grow a mass murderer without resorting to medical diagnoses or supernatural curses/hijinks from Light’s foundations. Spoilers: we definitely can.  

SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO.

messy dip walk cycle for animation class !!

not sure if i’ll clean it up anytime soon since i animated it on the lab computer and my own cracked portable version of photoshop on my surface tablet doesn’t function normally and isn’t really  good for anything but using the timeline and exporting gifs

i’m still pretty proud of it though regardless since i really haven’t done much in frame-by-frame animation

“You’re cute when you’re jealous” - Bruce Wayne x Reader

Hey dude ! First, a big thanks for the compliment, always more than appreciated :D. And then, here’s your request, hope you’ll like it :

-I just don’t understand why it has to be with a model that’s all…

-Honey, I already told you, she’s the face of the brand, she has to be on every pictures.

-Yeah well then if she’s the face of the brand, why would they need you ?

-You know why, it’s for the charity campaign we’ve been working on for the past few months. They’re a huge brand, they’ll help spread the words across the globe, more than we could on our own.

-”We’ve been working on” are key words here ! I worked on it as much as you, if not more, and I don’t get to be on the pictures. They just want you and her to have cute and classy “couple pictures”, because I’m not good looking enough for their damn brand and…

-You’re very cute when you’re jealous.

-I could knock you out with a punch to the face when I’m jealous.

-Oh, believe me, I know.

Bruce massages his jaw a bit, as a reflex, reminiscing of that time he made you jealous on purpose…It was a terrible idea.

Batjokes Handling Alfred's Time off Headcanons

- Bruce and the kids can’t cook to save themselves from starvation; at some point, after days of Alfred’s absence and takeaway, they’ll even eat Dick’s infamously teeth-rotting pancakes if it means putting something handmade in their stomachs.

- J. finds all of this hilarious, of course, but he offers to make food for them; mind you, it’s not French cuisine but he can do mean toasties and pasta.

- The deal though, is that everyone else has to do the washing up.

- Once Bruce almost flooded Alfred’s precious kitchen so, he was exonerated from the task.

- The kids set up some weird and mildly violent competitive game involving squirt guns filled with dish soap (the idea was Tim’s)

- Jason is disgustingly competitive and not above maiming if it means winning (he’s known for squirting soap in his brothers’ eyes)

- Dick and Damian are the Terrible Duo

- They even set up teams and hung up a score board behind the fridge, well hidden from Alfred’s disapproving gaze.

- The system with which they assign points is not exactly clear and they take every chance to cheat as if there is no tomorrow (Bruce is appalled by their lack of fair play, while J. is not-so-secretly proud)

- Deep under Bruce is pretty happy, though - not only this is a good bonding exercise that makes them have fun and train some of their reflexes at the same time, but it’s also a small accepting step towards J.

- They lost count of the times someone got seriously injured after slipping on the suds covering the floor.

- At the end of each game, J. ends up making hot chocolate (or smoothies, it depends on the season) for everyone.

- Everytime Alfred comes back from his holidays, the kitchen is spotless but he knows his scoundrels well and always goes to check on the score board hidden behind the fridge.

- Because he’s an evil man, he changes the scores and grins at the idea of the boys screaming murder at each other.

- They’re a big happy family.
