Today I covered “Vanessa” by Grimes. I’m a big fan of Grimes and I listen to this song on loop all the time. Anyway, it’s a bit of a difficult song for me because of the high notes and the lack of chances to breathe and my inability to play the ukulele, but I hope you enjoyed! It’s always a learning experience for me when I watch myself sing because I see all the ways I could do better. :) Thank you for watching!
which fate/girl that isn't rin has the best ZR in your opinion
Man, that’s a hard one to answer. Kioyhime’s definitely one of my favourites, although she doesn’t have very good ZR, specifically, just really good thigh highs, so I suppose she’s disqualified under that condition.
Jeanne D’Arc also has really good thigh highs, but the quality of the ZR is questionable because she’s got that really short metal skirt, so it’s not quite zettai ryouiki.
Her final art is exceptional, though. Still, I have trouble assuming that mess is pure uncut ZR, regardless of the quality.
I suppose if we can count ZR as including the hot pants variety then my favourite is almost certainly Heroine X Alter’s’s second form.
Not least because she’s got that really cool Rory Mercury-esque Half-Garterbelt-Strap-Thing so there’s twice skindentation, but also because it’s spats ZR, and it’s really, really good spats ZR. I mean, her design as a whole is incredible - Jeanne cosplaying Heroine X Alter would probably be the best Fate Girls could get, design-wise - but as far as the ZR goes, it’s hard to get better than this.
Honorable mention does, of course, go to Okita Souji, who might have won, were she not wearing those frightening miserable awful very bad stirrup-based toeless liar bastard thigh highs.
Being sad and being depressed are two different things. Also, people going through depression don’t look so, while someone sad will look sad. The most common reaction is, ‘How can you be depressed? You have everything going for you. You are the supposed number one heroine and have a plush home, car, movies… What else do you want?’
Hello! I saw that you were taking requests for IkeSen headcannons/fics, so I hope this isn't too much to ask, but what do think about female!Mitsuhide or any of the guys? What do you think they'd be like if they were girls instead?
ikesen requests are open!
oh my goodness so i only did the oda forces sinc those are the ones i know well enough to write with confidence sdlkfjdlkfj but this was so fun thank you! i pictured a female mc for this, but it could definitely be easily changeable ;;
I seriously zero-ed in on the negative, mostly because I get frustrated by how little attention Steve’s issues and flaws get. So that write-up is very one-sided. Steve isn't just his depression, frustration and self-loathing. He’s a lot of things.
Like I shot down a few positive qualities that people tend to give him that I don’t agree with. I don’t think he’s good with people. I think he struggles with people and not in a shy way, but in a ‘I can think of seven million rude-ass things to respond with and only five that are only mildly-rude so maybe I should just keep my mouth shut’ way.
I don’t think he’s so inherently good that he doesn’t struggle doing the right thing or being a nice person. That’s what I meant about him not being a 'good person’, and I really shouldn’t have put it like that because Steve is a good person. He’s a very good person. The thing is he has to try to be good, he puts a lot of effort into being good and he holds himself to very strict, very high standards and I just don’t think he’d do that shit if being good came easy. Steve has too much anger and frustration and depression for it not to be a struggle. It's hard not lashing out when you feel that shit. Its hard to juggle forward momentum with acceptable verbal responses, but Steve does it because in his mind, its what he has to do, otherwise he's wrong, or more wrong than he already is. That struggle is what makes him a good person, because he consistently has to choose and he consistently makes the 'right’ choice. Steve is good, but its not inherent in the way people like to portray it. He isn’t only full of good opinions of people and he does think about what would be the easy way out and what would be the most beneficial for him, fuck everyone else. He just makes the choice to put himself last despite whatever else he thinks. The point being he thinks that shit in the first place.
Steve struggles with people, but that doesn’t mean he’s awful to be around. He does his best to hide all the shit inside him, right? So he tries to be as pleasant as he can. And although he’s not very pleasant, considering pre-serum his default is quiet and sullen looking, he’s smart as a whip and has a sharp sense of humor which can be v. attractive. He may only know how to speak in snark, but people like snark and he’s very good at choosing when and how to express himself. He’s good at choosing the right snarky thing to say at the right time, he just waits for those times. That’s why I roll my eyes when he gives Tony shit for always having an answer because hAHAHA STEVE YOU ARE exactly the fucking same in that regard. You always have an answer when people push at you and its always the best thing you can come up with at the time and you can come up with some doozies.
And when he’s comfortable, talking comes easier and by the time he’s Cap, he’s used to snarking with people Not Bucky and doing it in a socially acceptable way. He tries to play light. Taken at face value, that’s attractive.
I don’t think Sam or Bucky pity Steve. They think the shit he holds himself to is pretty unfair and that he should give himself a break, but they also respect how hard he tries and they respect his box because they know he needs it and its just part of who he is. They like him for who he is; imperfect, smart, funny, creative, caring. They like helping him feel at ease with himself, to help him crack open the door to the box, or even just help him feel less constrained by it.
Sam and Bucky (pre-first avenger) are both better people than Steve is, and I mean inherently. Things come easier for them and they both know that and both respect Steve because they can recognize he’s having to try. I don’t think either of them have a hero complex. Sam helps people for a living–helping people is what he goddamn does and it isn’t for a sense of pride or superiority, its because he’s a fucking angel. People need help and he’s good at giving it and it makes him feel fulfilled. I’m sure he takes pride in his work but it’s a result of his work, not his reason for it. Bucky cares for and puts himself out there for Steve because he thinks Steve deserves that, he thinks Steve is worth that. Its something he can give him and he’s certain Steve should have that kind of loyalty. He’ll champion Steve especially because it seems like no one else will. Bucky knows all the ways Steve goes under appreciated (how hard he tries and how stubborn he is to keep going being chief among them) and it burns him up inside that this kid who has so much inside him is going unnoticed and has been convinced he has to stamp all that fire down to get by. Bucky wants Steve to be happy because not only does he like the snarky little shitlord that he is, but he also sees his potential and wants to help Steve reach it however he can. Usually he’s just making sure the kid stays alive long enough to get there, because that’s the help Steve will accept.
So like Steve? He’s an unhappy person. But he does his absolute best not to take that out on anyone but himself. He puts the comfort of others before his own and he’s damn good at articulating (if heavily censoring) himself, so he’s not too hard to be around so long as you don’t expect him to be very energetic. He’s not used to having conversations with more than one or two people at once and he’s certainly not used to being the center of those conversations–he would avoid both of those things as politely as goddamn possible. If you can’t handle snark, he’s not gonna talk to you much and what he does say will probably be as polite as he can make it, but if you think snark is charming and can appreciate his wit, you’ll probably have a good conversation and he’ll be far more open to it. Steve’s a good guy, he’s just not very good at making himself happy so he’s honestly kinda shit at making other people happy, too. But he still tries. Steve fucking tries
I'm awkward and running off an hour of sleep and coffee, so please spare me; how do you make a good in depth oc that doesn't feel like an oc, but feels like an actual 3 dimensional character. Something that isn't Mary Sue and that hasn't been done before?
EDIT: This reply turned out way too long, so imma just go ahead and put most of it under the cut
well, i’m by no means an expert, but what i find helpful for creating a character, is this:
Okay, so I have to say this first- my ridiculous “dancing” and shuffling in the background is just me imitating what he usually does while dancing to Shake It Off when we’re at home. I am by no means a good dancer, but I promise I wasn’t actually trying here 😂. In fact I tried to crop me out, but the video already cut Taylor off a bit at one part :( so I didn’t want to make it any worse, but here we have Leyton “holding Tay’s hand” via the side mirror while bopping down the road to live vocals accompanying the radio. You know, while she casually drives down the sidewalk in a mini-Mercedes. Casual.
cheapest, most ecological smartphone that does everything it needs to do. Currently has an htc, but his old models have always been Androids. He likes to customize his phone. Whenever he gets a new phone, he spends hours up to days to get the layout exactly how he wants it to be.
Newest iPhone with the prettiest and girliest case. Wallpaper and app organization constantly changes. Includes many emojis for contact names. Out of all the Garde, she posts the most snapchat stories. Also has "feed goals" on Instagram
Older version of iPhone. Cracked screen and a kickass home button sticker. Various emo stickers stuck on a simple clear case. Mostly uses to listen to music; always brings headphones everywhere
Not the newest iPhone, but not as old as Six's. Backgrounds are always selfies of her and another Garde, mostly Eight, Six, Ella, and sometimes Sarah. Has a pretty floral case which she never changes. Always careful to keep phone in good condition
Switches between Apple and Samsung. Is always breaking his phone one way or another, and constantly replacing it. Each year he has to go through at least two phones. One year he broke five phones and Marina got mad at him for being so clumsy. Isn't the most tech-savy, so his layouts/backgrounds are quite basic as well as his social media.
Likes Samsung because he claims Apple is too mainstream. Has S6 and loves the camera quality, as its great for taking gym workout pictures. However he isn't the best at picture taking and his lighting and filters make his photos unattractive but shh he doesn't know that yet
Older hand-me-down Samsung phone from John, who helps her recustomize the phone to fit her preferences. Usually uses it to play many games or stalk people on social media.
Newest iPhone to keep updated with current technology. Likes to take the phone apart to study the insides. His phones are jail broken and has many security features installed.
