One year ago, when DiU was airing and I was starting to get more into Jojo’s, I happened across some blogs with cute JJBA art. And then some more. And then some more. Dailies, Badlydrawns, askblogs… a whole fun little community, tucked away in a corner I hadn’t noticed. And I thought: Hey, I’vebeen drawing a fair bit of JJBA lately. Why not give a blog a go? It’ll be good art practice, right?
One year, 1200+ posts(!), 6.9gb of art(!!), and over 1260 followers(!!!) later… Yeah, it’s been good practice, past-self. Thanks for taking the leap, and keeping it up all this way. We’ve come pretty far.
And none of it would have happened without all of you. I’m gonna have some specific shout-outs under the cut, but first, let me just say thank you. To everyone who’s sent asks, added notes, or even reached out to my awkward little self with friendship and messages… You’ve definitely made this past year more special. Wherever the future may lead, I’m incredibly grateful to each and every one of you for accompanying me this far.
As much fun as people have talking about Danny getting the crap beaten out of him and hiding bruises and injuries, I’m not certain ghosts CAN be traditionally injured? At least in the context I’ve built up for Ghost Physics… Like, Danny is essentially injuring himself whenever he rips his face in half to dodge something, or when he forms a spectral tail. If you can atomize and reform your body with no consequence, then physical damage is almost meaningless.
Ghosts are very defined by self perception, so most can be convinced into thinking they’re physically injured and experience pain from it, but the only surefire way to hurt one is by targeting their ectosignature nervous system. Energy attacks seem to be most effective, maybe because the energy can travel through a ghost’s 4D connection to the GZ and stun their nervous system? Disrupting the 4D connection would also work well as a non-physical attack, or on the same note “hijacking” a ghost’s body by overriding the signal from their ectosignature and telling the mass to do something else (probably how the Fenton Thermos works)
Danny definitely gets bruises and injuries in human form, mostly from bullying, I’d imagine… I’m not sure if they’d heal at an accelerated rate on their own, but turning into Phantom or atomizing and reforming his human body could heal them instantly as well, so… Danny is terrifyingly unkillable? The most damage he’s gonna sustain from ghost battles is sleep deprivation and uhhhhhh probably PTSD
Random question, is you Demon and Angel AU based off of something...? >_>
hmm, well i’ve always had a fixation on demons and angels since i was little, but i guess i have to say the devimega au from the oso-san fandom!! but if u mean plotwise, not rlly?? i daydream a lot while listening to music, so i usually just make plots from that..?? ur emoticon is worrying me did i do something–
Shawn Jackson and Hasse Bernfield, better known as Whit and Slug. These two are Nana’s adopted grandsons, and certified little shits– ESPECIALLY Whit. Both of them have spent most of their lives on the planet too.
Whit came to the planet with their (rich) family to live in one of the colony. They got their nickname because of the old Whitworth rifle they carried around: it’s a family heirloom and they would always brag that they would inherit it and use it one day. They’re kind of annoying, 110% sass, and a joker. It was them who told Nana all that dumb shit that she totally believes.
Slug’s parents died in a mining accident and he became a bit of an outcast in the community. He wouldn’t let anyone near him and ended up bullying kids out of food and money. When he tried to steal from Whit, an outcast in their own right, they became fast friends. He got his name from his weapon of choice: the shotgun.
Bash and Daph live in 1-2 Bellevue Avenue… well they will when it’s finished, may just setup their bedroom so they have somewhere to sleep. For once they are childless, just a couple of pets - Lady Brainley and Lord Pepper in tow.
It's taken me about 5400 years but I just realized that corruption was probably supposed to do something else to gems, it just didn't work because Pink wasn't there with the rest of the Diamonds when they sang the 'corruption song.'
Tfw you realize it was probably meant to shatter every gem, but it wasn’t strong enough without Pink, so it just … corrupted them all …..
I was wondering if you could come up with some prompts relating to polyamorous relationships please? :>
There are many kinds of polyamorous relationships and I wrote these with a triad where every character is in a relationship with the other two in mind, but some of them would probably work for different relationship structures as well. If you’d prefer something else, please let me know :)
Characters negotiate the terms of the relationship.
Character A feels jealous about Character B and Character C spending a lot of time together.
Character A and Character B share a hobby and want Character C to get involved.
Character A and B prepare a surprise for Character C.
Characters organize a trip but one of them has to stay behind.
Or Character A and Character B want to go on a trip just the two of them.
Or one of the characters has to leave town for a while.
One of the characters has to explain the relationship to someone else.
Character A needs to get used to the fact that Character B and Character C each like different things.
One of the characters want to bring another person into the relationship.
One of the characters want out of the relationship.
Character A gets an invitation for themselves and a +1. What will they do regarding their partners?
Characters move in together and negotiate house chores.
Characters discuss how to best celebrate holidays, because each has a different set of traditions.
Someone accuses Character A of cheating on Character B, because they see A with Character C.
11 cool things you can do when sending requests to RPH blogs
Read people’s WIDs. Seriously, people, it’s 2017. How have so many of us still not figured this out? On most RPH blogs, the WID is one of the most prominent links on the home page. Click it.
Google it first. A good number of the questions I get are ones that I’m able to answer simply by throwing the question into my Google search bar. There are some nifty cheats here on how to get the results you want. It’ll be a time-saver for both you and the helper.
Make sure you’re not asking a repeat question. Some blogs get a heck of a lot of asks, and sometimes they see the same ones popping up again and again. Check the blog’s tags, or use the /search/ function, to see if this helper has already answered the question or filled the request you want to send.
Be specific. You want a guide on how to play a doctor? That’s nice, but there are tons of different types of doctors out there. You want an older version of a faceclaim? Well, I don’t know if you want someone five years older, or seventy years. Tell us in your ask.
Don’t send duplicate requests for large tasks. You want a shoutout, an FC suggestion, someone to give you their opinion on your RP? Go nuts, crowdsource it around the block and back again, ask every helper on the site. But if you want a gif hunt, a guide, or a theme makeover? Send it to one person and one person only.
Be polite. Look, I’m not one of those people who think that you have to say please and thank you or it is automatically rude. But at least use a tone that you’d use when talking to a human, not a machine. “Could you make a gif hunt of so-and-so when you find the time?” is fine; “Gif hunt of so-and-so.” is a slap in the face.
Don’t use pet names. This varies from person to person, and some are fine with some pet names but not others. Personally, I’m fine being called ‘cupcake’ and ‘champ’, but every time someone calls me ‘honey’, ‘sweetie’, or, God forbid, ‘babe’, I wanna puke. Play it safe and just avoid the pet names.
Be careful about your fan myopia. Not everyone watches the same TV shows, plays the same video games, and reads the same books as you. If you want a request for a particular fictional character, tell them which work the character is from, and accept the fact that some requests (like label help or bio writing) simply can’t be filled well by people who aren’t familiar with the work.
Don’t use subjective descriptors. You want a faceclaim who’s “hot” or “cute”? Would you like a theme that’s “cool”? Maybe a character PSD that’s “fun”? Yeah, I’m not gonna be able to be much help. Those things are all 100% a matter of opinion, and the helper probably has different tastes than you. Give me something else to work with.
Like or reblog the filled request. Come on, it is the absolute least you can do to show you appreciate the work. And, if you sent the request on anon and are too shy to like or reblog, lest they see the username and make the connection? Maybe pop back on anon and shoot them a thank you.
Be patient. Helpers are people too. And people have things that occupy time in their lives - jobs, school, family, relationships, friends, health issues, other hobbies, pets to care for, books to read, shows to watch, meals to cook, events to attend, naps to take. Asking for a request to be filled quickly or demanding to know why something is taking so long is going to do nothing but get on a helper’s nerves.
