see im working on other things

so i was rewatching s 1 ep 5 (lol) idk if this has ever been brought up but i noticed when after the team defeats sendak pidge helps shiro and keith helps lance. (seen in the picture below)

 now, yeah thats a given but i started thinking about it more and this scene is just so out of wack that it honestly just adds another point for klance. now youre probably thinking “well i mean thats just a given and of course it adds points for klance.” but hear me out 

as a given, we know that keith and shiro have a very strong relationship and keith is really attached to shiro. keith always has shiros back and is his right hand man. so in a situation like this it should be a given that keith would be at shiros side in a heartbeat. but…. that isnt the case here which doesnt make one ounce of sense. yeah, even though pidge was at shiros side and wanted to help her fellow paladin, pidge knows how much shiro means to keith, so wouldnt she give them space and help her garrison bud instead? but she doesnt for some odd reason. 

though, the most oddest part of this whole scene though is how keith reacts. he doesnt seem to worry about shiro too much, which isnt a bad or good thing, its just weird that keith wouldnt even go to shiros side or at least check on him. keith couldve easily said to pidge “ill check on shiro, you make sure lance is okay.” but he didnt. he was totally fine going to lance even though he always seems irritated with lance. 

then this happens:

keith literally starts holding his hand. now look at these pictures of shiro and pidge and keith and lance from the same screencap:

with shiro and pidge it seems like a normal teammate helping out another one, but keith and lance on the other side…. its a little different. i know it shouldnt be a big deal but honestly its the little things that make a big difference. especially knowing that keith and lance always bicker with each other.

i think the importance of this scene is the turning point of keith and lances relationship. in the very beginning of vld, their relationship was a more shaky, but after this scene, this moment, everything changed. keith started getting jealous over lance, their weird flirting thing that they have really took off, we got to see them work more with each other, and actually being a really good team with a strong bond.

in conclusion: this scene is really goddamn gay (well it is but) this scene is so damn important and is what started everything. 

anybody looks like a failure if you’re close up. from far away i look good and clean; a latin honors student with a double workload and published materials. but im sick and lazy and also just ate so much color-changing fundip that my mouth is bleeding.

the thing is. your mouth will remember bleeding more than it remembers all the kind things you said to others. you’ll remember the stress you felt not having time to do the work; not the gentle way you stood up for your friends or forgave them or helped them shape their own lives. you’ll see your sickness and forget you needed that time off to just rest. 

make yourself a home from the bricks of the moments you felt something like love. the times you laughed so hard you almost drown in it. the soft things you touched and the small things you saw that nobody else did. if every white brick was a failure and the rest were all colors: how colorful would your house be, honestly? if you lined up your worst day, could you still find something beautiful in it? the color of your sheets, of the sky - the taste of color-changing fundip.

Things I’d like to see in Stardew Valley

SV is such an awesome game but like let’s be real there are some things missing and these are some of my ideas:

  • so i dont know if im the only one but i feel like the relationships aren’t that great? like the dialogue needs some work, and there should be more scenes w/ bachelors/ettes and non bachelors/ettes!!
  • be able to send other villagers mail! I would love to send friends as much stuff as they send me!
  • add a place to set up a “shop” that you can use to sell items to the people in town! And if you sell stuff that certain people like, their hearts go up or something
  • Have more dialogue with personal character questions, and have the townspeople bring that same answer up later
  • place to buy a jukebox for you house? I want to play music!
  • let townspeople visit your farm!! Have your farmer give a tour or something!
  • i know there’s a mod for it but have the wizard sell you a character change/styler for your house
  • obvi multiplayer
  • MAKE THE KIDS GROW UP!! I can’t stress how much i loved this in previous harvest moon games! I want my kids to help around the farm or follow a career of art with leah as a mentor or music with sam!! this would be super cool to see!
  • more dialogue with spouse! I married abigail because i loved her characteristics and dialogue, but i feel like she lost that once i married her (she didnt have that much to begin with but still,,)
  • speaking of spouses, ENOUGH WITH THE DROPPING DREAMS. I hate seeing how certain spouses stop what they want to do just to marry you. Like, shane should own his own coop on you farm, seb should have a garage extension where he works on his motorcycle and sometimes isn’t there because he’s “riding” it, leah works on art in a separate building, etc
  • i want to have anniversary cutscenes with my partner!
  • also cutscenes for birthdays/giving presents with spouse and kids!
  • ((the farmer should have a birthday too))
  • more furniture
  • allow you to get a dog/cat that you didn’t have later in the game, or other random pets
  • rival marriages (except for clint- he sucks) or at least show the townspeople growing as well, following careers etc
  • make one of the big tasks to build linus a house or something! like a small shed or house similar to the farmer’s in the beginning

WOW okay i wrote down a lot more than expected! If anyone has any other ideas feel free to add them (i might add some more too :O)!

lance headcanons bc i love one (1) boy

are y’all prepared ..,.,,i got a lot going on here i’ve been working on this post for a while StRAP IN MY FRIENDS

  • okay first of all lance has incredible fashion sense, we just don’t get to see it bc !!! at the garrison he had to wear a uniform and he left all his other clothes behind back on earth but his closet is literally full of such cool clothes like he’s the type of guy who can take old thrift store things but arrange them uniquely in an outfit that looks really fUCKIng good and has everyone going O: !…,,he always looks good..,,and the boy does it on a budget bc he is practical!!
  • he has had a LOT of jobs bc he wanted it to look good on his application/money obvs ..,,,some of these include: a grocery store clerk, a waiter, and he even!! worked at a spa once bc…,he knows so many things about self care and has a passion for it!!
  • his first job tho was, you guessed it: the farm. u know, where he learned to milk a cow…,he was finally old enough to get a job and got all excited like heck yeah i’m ADULT and then his mom was like here our family friend (or maybe a relative or something) needs help on his farm this summer u can do that and he’s like wh…..okay
  • like at first he’s wary bc ew farm work?? dirt and sweat and rlly hot all the time?? but also he’s just..he likes to be optimistic abt things too when he can and is like ok u know what i’m gonna take this job and make it into something good and do a great job!! so.,,,at first he’s like what fuck when he learns how to milk a cow but eventually he gets the hang of it and as weird a feeling as it is he rlly likes the cows and all the animals and is v gentle with them ..,,he also cleans the chicken coop often which is gross but he likes the chickens ..,.he names every single one and sings to them sometimes while he’s working or talks to them
  • also he names every chicken after one of his siblings or family members so when he tells story about them at dinner he’ll be like “so yeah (insert sibling name here) finally laid an egg today” “lance are you kid—oh. the chicken” lance, bursting out in laughter:
  • on That note lance just loves all animals …,,he’s the kinda kid that brings home a stray cat/dog every other day and is like “mom can we keep him” . hell he does that with little lizards he finds on the sidewalk sometimes ..,, “mom can we keep him” “honey put the lizard back he actually lives out here”
  • swerving in another direction y’all ever wonder WHERE lance learned his sharpshooting skills?? like a majority he developed like right away when the war started and he has to quickly adapt but ?? he has to have had SOME previous experience bc the bayards kind of take the form that best suits their paladin, right??? i don’t even have a headcanon for that i just want to know maybe it’s bc he played a lot of shooting games at the arcade and got all the high scores
  • which reminds me like y’all…,,lance is just a teenage boy. he likes video games and pizza and going to parties and hanging out At The Beach With His Pals And stereotypical teenage things. he’s a kid please let him be a kid ..,
  • he likes to paint his nails!! it’s a very soothing task for him and he likes different colors. his favorites are black and blue (but also some purple and red for gay reasons)
  • he struggles a lot with his bisexuality (this is coming from a bi mlm for the record) for a LONG time. not really grasping the idea that he can like both girls AND boys and that it has to be one or the other, that he has to make some kind of choice to be gay or straight. so at some point he identifies as gay and then gets terrified of that and is like no i’m straight and finally..,,starts to come to terms with things and accept himself when he really learns what bisexuality is (hunk tells him probably) and there’s a light bulb over his head that goes DING DING DING BITCH THATS U!!!
  • he loves to watch his friends do things they’re passionate about bc it makes him happy. he loves watching keith draw, the cute concentrated somewhat frustrated look he gets on his face when he sketches. he likes watching pidge work on tech, like the kind she gets excited about, cool robot things and things she loves. hunk is always so happy when he’s cooking or tinkering with machines or talking about chemistry and lance will just sit and listen with a dopey grin. he and allura actually have a shared love of beauty stuff and self care so they get to do that together a lot !!! and shiro doesn’t really…,talk much about his interests or share them and lance is a little nervous to spend alone time with him bc he’s so intimidated (this is his hero!!) but those moments when they do happen to be alone lance is always v soft with him bc at the end of the day he knows shiro is not perfect and that he struggles an immense amount and deserves that softness
  • and coran, he just likes to listen to coran’s stories about all of his adventures, lets him go on about his life in altea for as long as he wants bc he knows it’s so important to coran. sometimes allura will join in and add a few things on to some of the stories or some info when they’re talking about altean culture and lance will listen intently and be so genuinely interested and if reallg means so much to coran and allura
  • lance in general although he puts on a cocky facade loves to listen to people and be there for them, is an incredible sense of support and encouragement and more than anything wants to see his loved ones happy and succeeding
  • going in a completely different direction here now but one time he arranges a paladin sleepover and insists they ALL wear their specialized paladin pajamas and!!! everyone wears theirs except keith bc keith is lame. (he does at least concede to wearing the slippers bc they’re….comfy okay…) and hunk and allura and keith and lance and pidge all!! stay up late and talk and stuff..,,lance teaches allura all the common sleepover games like truth or dare and she gets to really be a teenager again and they all get to just spend the night eating snacks and being kids and playing monopoly and i’m crying and !! it’s all orchestrated by lance bc lance more than anyone knows what they will need for a morale boost
  • He just wANTS OEOPLE TO BE HAPPY
  • outwardly he talks a lot about like glory of winning the war and being a hero and parades!!! but rlly his favorite thing is meeting all the people he’s saved not bc he’s some celebrity to them but bc it’s amazing to see that they’re free and as safe as they can be, that the work he’s doing, the struggles he’s going through and his time so far away from his family really is worth it if he can help so many people
  • i’m doing this so out of order but he can also ride a horse
  • that’s all for now but expect another one soon thx for coming to my ted talk

I’m suppose to be drawing angst, this is not angst. This is the opposite, but hey here’s a preview for the one of the next illustrations for Celeb AU with @destatree! I haven’t decided if I want this in chapter 3 or 4….We’ll see <3  

Give ya Artist a Hand with school

So, guys, I’ve run into a problem I just explain what happened step by step so you know whats going.

I went to register for a class last semester but it was canceled on me without me knowing. So I went back to my advisor and he said “ it got canceled instead lets put your money onto a different class “ I said “ ok “

so then I re-registered for a history course. When I went to go pay for the history course I had no money. My money was missing. So I went back the same day and got it dropped.

BUT while he was dropping my classes he lost the drop sheet I signed so it never got into the system and never counted it as a dropped course.

I went back to school yesterday to finally drop the course I didn’t pay for and didn’t attend. But I am still required to pay for the class. I will NOT be going back to this same school after I pay this. But if I want to go to school anywhere in my district I have to pay for the class and pay for the class I’ll be registering for next semester.

Next semester registration starts next Tuesday.

It would mean the world to me if you all could REBLOG this post so others will see my print shop and hopefully buy a poster from it for me.

I only have a few things but it’s all I got atm.

I’m working on finishing my commissions so I can take on more but right now this is all I got!

https://www.etsy.com/shop/PathesisPrints

Right now my parents are very pissed at me and If I can’t attend school this semester or find a full-time job within a few weeks I’ve been threatened with being thrown out.

Thank you all for reading.

okay but the other thing i loved about this was seeing all the vocal stuff harry does during it? singing the “wanna die” part from only angel and singing the “da da da da da da” part in woman during the instrumentals and going up the octave in esny and the falsetto in ftdt and the numerous note changes he did throughout mmith like when he went high on “thieves” or “hallwaaAaAy” or “doooOOoOo” or like when he went high on “and maybe we’ll work it…” …. im missing a lot of moments here but my point is seeing him play with his sounds and do changes and all that like… he has soo much talent and understanding with music and vocally he’s so strong it’s really fucking impressive

i honestly cant comprehend it when people say that they dont ship Jake and Amy when they are like such literal One True Pairing material like??

- slowburn, mutual pining 

- such a soft naturally developed relationship that went from partnerts at work to partners in life and their dating just made it so much richer

- the “i know youre dating another guy and i dont want to make this awkward but i just had to let you know that i really like you but dont worry i wont bother you about it”

- literal canon fake dating au

- when they start dating they try to hide it from thieir friends work family trope but they literally fail in a day

- the universe seems to tell us this is a bad idea but you know what fuck that noise i wanna be with you

- they literally accidentally kill a man by making out at their 1st official day of being a couple like?? get you an otp who can top that

- “theres no one elses opinion that matters more to me” “he makes me laugh”

- they were friends before they started dating!! and they remained silly competitive friends even after they became a couple!!

- no “now that were dating i suddenly realized you have flaws and i dont want this anymore” drama

- they literally asked for their work dads approval 

- like literally no unnecessary drama they fight a few times but none of it is ever superficial or due to bad communication?

- they literally flirt all the time and have their own silly puns and eyeroll eachother but never make the other feel uncomfortable??

- they support each other and are very attentive to the others interests? they try to become involved in things that the other likes just to make them happy??

- “i know that youre dating someone else but im here for you as a friend and i want to see you happy”

Virgil Finds Solace in Logan & Logan Rips His Heart Out - A Post I’m Surprised I Haven’t Made Yet

SO GUYS. IN THE Q&A VIDEO VIRGIL SAYS THIS.

BC ANXIETY IS IRRATIONAL AND LOGIC IS RATIONAL. OF COURSE VIRGIL WOULD FIND COMFORT IN LOGAN. LOGAN GROUNDS HIM. LOGAN KEEPS HIM IN CHECK. LOGAN USES REASONING TO EXPLAIN WHY VIRGIL’S FEARS AREN’T LOGICAL AND THEREFORE CANNOT HURT HIM. LOGAN IS HIS SAFE SPACE.

BUT THEN. OH BUT THEN. YA’LL KNOW WHAT’S COMING. LITERALLY IN THE VIDEO AFTER THAT LOGAN, THIS MOTHERFUCKER (that i still love with all my heart i promise), FUCKING R I P S VIRGIL’S HEART OUT AND NO ONE EVEN CARES

DO YOU SEE THE REALIZATION & HEARTBREAK ON HIS FACE? DO YOU? BC I CERTAINLY DO AND I HAVEN’T BEEN OKAY SINCE I FIRST WATCHED THIS. THEY ACCEPTED HIM AND THINGS ARE BETTER BUT IM STILL NOT OVER IT.

LOGIC. ANXIETY’S LEFT BRAIN BUDDY, THE ONE HE FEELS COMFORTABLE AROUND, IMPLIED THAT HE’S ALWAYS READY FOR FAILURE BECAUSE THAT’S ALL HE KNOWS. LOGAN IMPLIED THAT HE’S A USELESS FUCK UP. THEY’RE BOTH LEFT BRAIN. IRRATIONAL AND RATIONAL. THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO UNDERSTAND EACH OTHER MORE AND WORK TOGETHER. BUT NO. LOGAN BREAKS HIS FRAGILE HEART AND DOESN’T CARE.

i had a dream we brought things back from books and i brought back a nightmare. you were there, even though i haven’t thought about you in years. we sat in a room full of leaves and you told me you had been missing me and i said, “oh, i’m in a dream.” your watch broke and i taught you a song in the event that when you wake up you remember it and wake up and write me something like how i’m writing you. i know looking back we weren’t meant to be, i see your flaws and mine in bright letters running against each other. i also see how desperately i wanted you, in an aching way that blotted out the truth of things. im glad it didn’t work out and i’m sad i wanted it to.

i woke up from a dream and brought back thoughts of you.

essay writing strategy

if you’re like me, maybe you have trouble staying focused on your essays or remembering what you’re writing about when you trail off mid paragraph, 

or hate scrolling up and down the page to see things youve written previously/remember what you were talking about! 

ive developed a strategy for countering this sort of thing in my own work, and figured hey maybe i should type it out because it might help some other people who struggle with similar things! so here goes! 

also, uh .. I dunno if anyone cares about this but im using the Great Gatsby as an example, so if you care about being spoiled about stuff that happens in that book.. dont read the examples?

1. Rewrite/copy down your prompt. 

If you have short term memory problems like I do, this can help you actually remember what it is that you’re supposed to be talking about; and if you have issues skimming and skipping words in a sentence, it forces you to read all of it and not miss a key part of your prompt. 

Example prompt: Explore the thematic significance of symbols of wealth in The Great Gatsby, and what the author uses them to say about society in the text. 

2. Make a messy bullet point list of what you know. 

This doesn’t need to be organized. In fact, it shouldn’t be. At this point you’re just throwing your ideas out onto the word processor. Examples you can use, points you want to make, anything else that comes to mind. 

Example: 

  • Gatsby’s car
  • Daisy as a symbol of money & american dream
    • (quote about her voice being full of money)
  • the valley of ashes 
  • capitalism is bad bcuz it favors people with old money etc 
  • the boat guy 

3. Cut down & reorder your bullet points to make yourself a neat little list. 

Your outline is starting to take shape now! If you can, it’s a good idea to try and think of transitions now; how you’re going to move from subject to subject in your essay. Now is a good time to elaborate on your points, too. 

Example: 

  • Daisy as a symbol of money & american dream
    • (quote about her voice being full of money)
  • the valley of ashes 
    • (tie that in with the deaths of gatsby and wilson, all the people who “lost” in the book started poor, transition to:
  • capitalism is bad bcuz it favors people with old money etc, end with fancy ass profound quote if u think of one by then 

4. Gather all your points and squish em into one introductory sentence.

Your thesis statement, if you rather. Your thesis statement is something of a “preview” of what’s to come later in the essay, so it’s better to write this after you’ve got your outline down! Make sure that your thesis statement answers/addresses the question posed in the prompt. 

Example: 

topics covered (daisy, valley of ashes, capitalism, people dead) 

In his novel the Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald seems to be criticizing how the American system is stacked against the poor, making it difficult, if not impossible, for anyone to truly achieve the elusive “American Dream”. 

5. Stick all that together

Now you’ve got the backbone of your essay! - your thesis statement, and the “topic” of each bit of the rest of your essay. Put this all together, and you’re ready to start padding it out. 

Example: 

  • (theeeeesiiiiiiiiiisssss) In his novel the Great Gatsby, Fitzgerald seems to be criticizing how the American system is stacked against the poor, making it difficult, if not impossible, for anyone to truly achieve the elusive “American Dream”. 
  • Daisy as a symbol of money/the american dream (quote about her voice being full of money) 
  • The valley of ashes (poor people in a bad situation in the wasteland of the city) 
  • capitalism sucks bcuz it favors old money, profound quote, bam done we’re gona rock it 

6. Start padding out your essay! 

See, what I like about writing an essay like this is that you don’t have to scroll around your page in order to know what you’re supposed to be writing about in the section you’re working on. Using your bullet points as a guide, write your paragraph under each one. 

Example: 

  • Daisy as a symbol of money/the american dream (quote about her voice being full of money)
    • A powerful symbol Fitzgerald uses to represent the American Dream is the character Daisy Buchanan. She is explicitly said to have a voice “full of money” and is pursued by many. However, when Gatsby finally achieves his dream of having her in his reach, she seems less magical, less perfect than he remembers; much like the American Dream seems from “close up”. Interestingly, the only one in the end who gets to have “the Dream” is Tom, someone born into money. Gatsby’s attempts to keep her are arguably in vain due to the fact that he used to be poor. 
  • The valley of ashes (poor people in a bad situation in the wasteland of the city)
    • Further commentary on wealth is evident in the area aptly named as the “Valley of Ashes”; the shadow of glamorous, frivolous New York, it is where the poor are left fighting for scraps and cleaning up what the rich left behind. (god, im not gonna finish this, im not getting a grade for this, you get the idea right? write the essay inside your outline. use it like a spine. like a tree trunk, and write the leaves around it.)

7. Write out an intro and conclusion to fit your middle paragraphs. 

Your introduction needs to “fade in” and bring the readers to your “point”; your conclusion needs to “fade out” and show the bigger picture and how your essay applies to other areas. (These aren’t rules that are set in stone per se, just good guidelines to follow when you dont have any other ideas.) 

Your thesis statement is ideally the end of your introduction, leading into the rest of your essay. Generally, the thesis is “restated” in different words in the conclusion, as if in summary. 

8. Delete your outline bullet points and clean it up a little. 

This is like erasing your construction lines after you finish a drawing, and then make sure it flows smoothly together. Reading it outloud to yourself is a good idea, it will help you catch any glaring errors. 

9. Congrats you wrote that dam essay!! 

good job dude!!!!! give yourself a pat on the back and maybe a treat bcuz you deserve it!

i understand where he’s coming from though, seeing as though he lived a pretty tough life to begin with and feelings will just be an inconvenience for him. he’s too busy focused on surviving and depending on himself to get him through the toughest obstacles…

You know how Jungkook likes Justin Bieber? According to astrology, would they get along?

honestly, never in a million years wouldi think i’d do a synastry reading between justin beiber and jungkook, but here i am hgnjh

there’s a lot of squares and oppositions (which makes sense because they’re truly not that much alike) but i do see a lot things that point to them working well together. jk’s sun is opposite jb’s sun (virgo-pisces = opposite signs) and i’ve seen through experience that sister signs tend to “complete” other and make up for each other’s weaknesses, which forms a strong bond. 

jk’s sun and moon are in jb’s 9th house which means jk introduces him to different view points and cultures (hint: korean) the 9th house rules learning so it also hints a mentor relationship. jb’s sun and venus are in jk’s 6th house (the house of work) big pointer to cooperation and collaboration 👀

glambertal  asked:

Im writing a character who is supposed to be an terrifyingly lethal fighter, so I'm wondering how it's possible to kill someone without a weapon (other than snapping a neck)

I’m tempted to be glib, and simply say that your character’s limbs and body are weapons, but let’s start by turning this one around.

First, snapping someone’s neck, the way you see in films, doesn’t work. You can annoy someone, and rack up an attempted murder charge, but it doesn’t actually work. That said, the list of things that can, in fact, kill someone is not short, ranging from blood chokes (where the attacker holds their opponent in a headlock which obstructs the carotid artery) to crushing the trachea, rupturing the kidney (though this one will take awhile), or any number of other attacks that will interrupt the victim’s ability to continue getting oxygen to their brain.

So, go back to that comment about your body being a weapon. It’s a concept that’s pretty easy to dismiss as pseudo-mysticism; doing that is a mistake. The important thing to take away from that phrase is the mindset. With enough creativity and dedication, just about anything can be a weapon. A character who’s willing to walk into a fight, grab their opponent by the skull and ram them face first onto a chunk of rebar is using weapons. They’re using their body and environment.

This is also where the idea of a character using a weapon being limited comes from. Again, it’s an idea that’s easy to dismiss as abstract philosophy, but it does reflect a kind of thinking that people, including writers, can trap themselves with. “I have a sword, therefore, I can…” as opposed to, “I have all these options to turn my enemies into meat pudding.”

I realize this isn’t, exactly, the catalogue of kill strikes you were hoping for. If you’re looking for more discussion on brutality and it’s psychological impact on combat, I would suggest you take a look at our The Only Unfair Fight tag.

           Biology was a subject made by the devil. Learning about cells and other useless things was never the first thing on your mind. You wanted to be a writer, a poet, anything that didn’t relate to science. Sitting in your biology class made time go by at the pace of molasses. The class consisted of you, barely listening, scratching down lines of poems in the back of your notebook.

           There was only one kid in your class who liked the work. Jared fucking Kleinman. The kid was a dork. You could practically see the imprints of his computer screen monitor in his glasses. All he ever did was answer questions without trying. When he would complete his work, he bothered the rest of his friends with dark memes that he either made or found on the internet; you could never tell which one it was.
