Hello 2017

Wearing  ✶  Lime Ricki Daisy Bralette and Daisy Ruched Bottom  ✶  Wotoos star shaped face tattoos 

It’s the first day of 2017 and warm enough already for a little splash in the pool! The beginning of the year is also fraught with the traditional onslaught of diet and weightloss ads in every corner you look, so I thought it would be timely to post some positive inspiration to help counter the toxicity that us fatties are routinely assaulted by around this time. The moment the year turns around, you see it screaming it you from billboards, newspapers and even browser ads. ‘New year, new you!’ ‘Resolve to be a skinny minnie this year!’ ‘Time for a liquid diet “cleanse” after that gluttonous Christmas!’ Well, here I am in my daisy print bathers, with stars on my face and unflattering curves everywhere else and I haven’t made a new year resolution to lose weight since the year 2007.

It hasn’t been easy all the way, fending off well meaning advice from acquaintances and relatives, and having to tune out friends unloading their weightloss plans onto me. Thankfully, and mostly because I’ve been doing it for so long, this sort of selective vision and hearing comes as second nature to me. But when the lovely folks at Lime Ricki swimwear asked me if I’d like to try out one of their swimsuits and talk a bit about feeling body confident as a fat woman, I realised that it would actually be helpful to share my tips for keeping sane and preserving your mental health (and confidence) in this month of weight based penance (ugh!)

1. Take out the trash

By which I mean the glossy magazines promising miracle ‘cures’ on the cover, the tabloids and their websites, the Instagrammers selling diarrhea tea, basically any media that’s not fat positive. Back in 2007, I was more than a bit addicted to celebrity gossip - it was entertaining and a welcome distraction from my undergrad texts. However, once I realised how badly the tales of celebrity weight loss and gain affected my own body image, I started weaning myself off it. And the more time I spent on the fat positive internet, the more I started abhorring popular media and the diet culture it sells. After a point, I didn’t even want to browse through ONTD anymore. Especially because I could find all the fashion inspiration I wanted from the fat internet, and that too on bodies that looked like mine.

2. Surround yourself with fat positive media

Admittedly, the fatshion community has a very different face now than it did a decade ago, and there’s no onus on plus size bloggers to be fat positive as well. You’ll find countless plus fashion bloggers who advocate weightloss and think nothing of documenting their diets, but there are just as many anti-weightloss bloggers you can follow if you’re looking for some positive reinforcement to go with your daily fashion fix. If you’re looking for somewhere to start with, my blogroll on this page has quite a few awesome internet peeps who are just as fat positive as they’re fashionable. And if anyone you’ve been following for a while, and whose style you love descends down the slippery road to diets, don’t hesitate to unfollow them if that’s what you need for your sanity. Just putting that out there because I feel kind of bad whenever I have to do that!

3. You don’t have to listen to your friends’ diet talk

I have friends who get down on their bodies, who can’t stop talking about how badly they need to lose weight. Most of us have friends like that. It’s especially distressing when they’re people you’re close to and genuinely care about, people whose concerns you can’t just shut down without an explanation. I’ve found that a gentler approach works best in these situations. All my friends are extremely aware of my stance on diets and weightloss - I mean, I’ve only been banging on about it for the last decade or so! Yet they still try to talk to me sometimes about how they’re planning to lose weight. In situations like this, this is pretty much what I tell them: Listen dude, it’s your body, you do whatever you want with it. But you know how I feel about weightloss, so there’s no point telling me about this because I’m just going to space out. You’re an adult, making your adult choices, so go ahead and make them *shoulder pats* I have literally zero inputs to give here. *firm shoulder pats*

Back when I was first learning about fat positivity, I made it my mission to bring all my closest friends into the fold. How could I let them suffer in the purgatory of dieting and self hate when I’d found such freedom in the  alternative? Unfortunately, that’s not how people work. And ultimately, everyone has to make their own decisions about the path they want to follow, whether it comes to weightloss or the rest of life itself. You can help them along the way, but the decision of whether to be diet free or not is theirs to make.

4. Spend some time with yourself

One of the things I realised when I was getting to grips with body positivity was this: I didn’t actually know my own body. I used to avoid looking at mirrors, especially when I was naked, I only ever saw myself from one single angle, looking down at my boobs, belly, a bit of leg and feet. Whenever I came across a candid photo, I would be aghast because is this really how everyone sees me? To accept my body, I had to know it first. From every possible angle so that I couldn’t take myself unawares. Back then, I had my ex to photograph me naked, but if you don’t have anyone like that, use the mirror, use your webcam! Take photos of yourself with the self timer, standing, sitting, in silly poses and unflattering ones. Examine those photos, find the parts of your body that you love, and write down what it is that you love about them. Then find the parts of yourself that you don’t love as much and figure out something positive to say about them as well. Write that down too. Keep going back to those photos and notes whenever you can, and keep adding to them. If I’d taken these swimsuit photos 5 years ago, I’m sure I’d have been cringing at my flat butt and lumpy thighs entirely because I wasn’t familiar with them. But now I know exactly what I look like from the back, or sitting down. The body I have is the body I expect to see in photos because I’ve seen it so many times now. I know exactly how my belly folds, where my things dimple when I’m walking. These are regular, everyday features to me now, not some kind of a bogeyman waiting to jump out at me from photos I didn’t expect.

5. Set a positive example by eating

This one’s for those of you who have already taken the first steps towards body positivity, those of you who are feeling secure enough to give a very public middle finger to diet culture. I didn’t find public eating easy at the beginning, especially since I had a history of eating disorders. As my BFF recalls, one of her first memories of me was at the University canteen, with an apple in one hand and a cigarette in the other, steadfastly refusing any other food because ‘that’s all I needed for lunch.’ It took a while to get to the point where I could go out with her and triumphantly demolish platters of food in public. What I noticed, though, was that whenever I was out with a group of people and a couple of them were heading towards the ‘I think I’ll just have a salad’ territory, they ended up ordering what they actually wanted and enjoying it once I’d set the lead by unabashedly eating what I wanted. And even if you’re still a way away from being able to eat freely in public, I think that just eating the food you want with relish and joy and savouring every bite without guilt is the biggest FUUUUU you can hurl at the diet industry this time of the year. So treat yourself to the food you love and actually want to eat, listen to your body instead of the ad pointing out your supposed failings. And remember, food has no morals attached to it, it’s we who burden our plates with them.

anonymous asked:

how do you do the cel shading? im so amazed at the colors

Oh, buddy! Thank you!

I’m not actually very good at picking colours, so I’ve found a way to sort of compensate for it by using layers like heck. I’ll explain it as best I can!

CEL SHADING

I’ll be doing this in SAI, but the general idea is still applicable to other programs, and the layer styles are usually called something similar (note: ”Addition” in SAI is similar to “Linear Dodge (Add)” in Photoshop).

First, here’s a list of the layers I use. The Lines layer is created first, and then the rest of them are made in order starting from the bottom. The arrows mean that layer is clipping over the one below it. Anything in black isn’t clipping, and is usually set to Normal at 100% opacity.

EXPLANATION OF THE ADJUSTMENT LAYERS

1) Shadow

This layer is completely filled with some colour. The colour you choose for this will give you the colour of your shadows.

2) Lighting 1

This is where you do the actual cel shading, i.e. it’s where the lit-up parts are. I’m afraid I don’t have much in the way of tips for that, since I just kind of slap it on while trying not to forget where the light source is.

3) Lighting 2

This is mostly just a duplicate of Lighting 1. The main difference is that I blur the edges. I usually change the colour and/or opacity, too, but you might not need to.

The colour(s) you choose for Lighting 1 and Lighting 2 will mostly give you the colour of your lighting, but since they’re over the shadow layer and each other, it might take some adjusting.

4) Shadow adjust (sometimes)

This is for if your lighting is about right but you want the shadows to be darker. This layer should only cover the parts of the image that the lighting layers do not already cover (use the magic wand tool). You can blur this layer if the edges of the shadows are too hard.

5) Flats adjust (sometimes)

This is for when the lighting and shadow layers change the colour of part of the image in a way you don’t want. Most commonly, I’ve had problems with skin tone being lightened too much and the colour green getting washed out. This layer is here to fix that. You might need more than one, depending on how many bits you need to change.

Select and fill the area that’s the wrong colour. If it’s the value of the colour that’s wrong, fill the selection with some sort of gray-ish colour. If it’s the saturation of the colour that’s wrong, fill the selection with the actual colour you want.

6) Lines adjust

This is to get coloured lines the lazy way. Duplicate Lighting 2, move it above the Lines layer, and set it to layer clip. Blur it a little bit, if necessary. If you’re doing bright lighting, this is probably a good idea.

It’s likely that you’ll need to manually tweak this layer.

7) Extra layers

For eye shinies and such.

EXAMPLES

Here’s a few examples of what different layer settings will look like on this picture, to give you an idea of how it works:

EXTRA TIPS

1) The Hue/Saturation panel is a great help for when you’re trying to figure out the colour/saturation/value of a layer. It can be brought up by CTRL+U in both SAI and Photoshop.

2) To get blurred edges in Photoshop, the easiest way is: Filter >> Blur >> Gaussian Blur. To get blurred edges in SAI, the watercolour tool with these settings works well:

I hope that helps!

Hey Phoe! I just wanted to tell you that I've read all your autistic headcanons and I've been excited like a fool with each of them? What's more, I had to share them with my bff here because they are so wonderful? You took me to another world! (and I'm not exaggerating), so I humbly dare to ask if you have some for Jason? I hope you don't feel this like a lawsuit! Anyway, I will not bother you any more and wish you a wonderful start to the week! (':

*finger guns*

  • this works because jason’s backstory is literally a goddamn mystery lmao
  • jason always organizes his room the same way, and he won’t be able to properly sleep/live in it until he has time to organize it. he’s had to grow pretty flexible since he’s on so many quests and stuff, but like cabin one at camp half-blood was totally unknowingly rearranged into as close a fit as he could get it to his room at camp jupiter (beds on one side, personal objects in specific places, clothes stored in a certain way, etc etc)
  • jason has cultivated a model image of himself as a leader at camp jupiter, and understandably finds himself falling back on the same routines/pattern of behavior (even without a memory. i rlly think Autistic Behavioral Patterns go deeper than memory bc u sorta like…absorb them into ur personality u know what i mean?)
  • people tend to think he’s too “straight laced” or uptight or whatever (this is canon piper says this) but in actuality he just genuinely never learned how to. hang out
  • i rlly feel very strongly about jason being sort of socially awkward and just genuinely having very little interpersonal skills at making small talk and like talking about topics that are. not about the end of the world lmao
  • like he’s a totally different person in casual conversation than he is when the world is ending 
  • learning to be a leader is endlessly frustrating to him bc he knows he’s strange and skittish and quiet and that’s not the sort of person people look up to…how is he meant to be the Model Child of Jupiter?
  • (ableism warning for this bullet) people assume his autistic traits are just a side effect of being dumped in the woods with wolves. he’s nonverbal as a child, and has very rigid body posture. so people just sorta go “oookay guess he’s a little…feral or something” (fun fact !!! that’s what real people used to think about disordered, disabled, and neurodivergent children :))) they’d be like “this kid is weird guess the fairies stole our baby and dropped this thing in it’s place” which is. horrifying)
  • i have got to give jason some sort of positive role models here because the honest to god thought that he never had ANYONE before chb is just. very sad (not that cj wasn’t bad for jason in general but like come ON pls just let this abandoned toddler have SOME shred of happiness in his life)
  • anyway the praetors who were praetors before jason and reyna took over become a very stable presence in his life. he models his behavior from watching them. he studies them closely and asks them as many questions as he needs, and they’re both lovely and very willing to answer.
  • also he goes to elementary school in new rome and the teachers are pretty much all neurodivergent themselves and very used to working with neurodivergent kids, so they’re very helpful.
  • his teachers don’t try and force him to talk and they make those cool little stim jars in arts and crafts and jason. still has it to this day.
  • after the war reyna gets it from his room and sends it over to camp half-blood with nico and jason has never felt so happy and Understood it’s probably the kindest gesture he can remember someone ever doing for him wow
  • nico grunts “i see why you like it so much” while he sticks it out for jason to take and jason feels quite validated and inexplicably happy to have his stim Approved by nico lmao
  • (cue jason being like “I’LL SHOW YOU HOW TO MAKE ONE!!!! we’ll make a black one for you. with skulls in it. and myth-o-magic figures!!!!”. and nico rolls his eyes but. they do institute stim jars for a new arts and crafts activity at chb and nico makes. many)
  • jason’s nonverbalness is sort of selective like sometimes it’ll happen when he’s very stressed out but he’s mostly verbal all the time. as a child though he was sort of selectively mute (like, had rules for where he would talk and where he wouldn’t…this isn’t particularly the autistic brand of nonverbalness, selective mutism is it’s own thing, but idk that’s what i was like as a toddler so whatever i’m projecting)
  • anyway he doesn’t talk in the school building but he’ll talk with people he considers friends and in his bunk in the cohort, and as an older kid and a teenager he’s mostly completely verbal
  • he does the monotone hum as a kid when he’s happy but the kids in his bunk/cohort/wherever-the-fuck-he-lived-for-most-of-his-life are always complaining about how annoying it is and he doesn’t even realize he’s doing it until they tell him to stop
  • so he eventually sheds that habit, but then he hears reyna doing it and feels super happy and at home even if he’s not really much of a hummer himself anymore
  • he barely ever has meltdowns, and if he does have one, it’s usually in that confusing weird limbo where ur like this might have been a meltdown but i still feel in control of myself so it’s a meltdown but not A Meltdown.
  • deffffinitely though there are certain scrape-y noises that make him crazy and he feels those bad tingles all up his arm and his neck and ugh ugh ugh and then he starts doing the super rigid posture clenched teeth squeezed shut eyes thing if he can’t get away from it
  • he hate s people chewing hates hates hates people chewing
  • also he can’t eat cereal. he can’t eat cereal and he really cannot watch people eat cereal.
  • he can’t eat cold things in general like. it either has to be cold enough to be freezing, like ice in a drink or ice cream, or it has to be room temperature. even if it’s meant to be served cold it absolutely must be room temperature or he’s not gonna have a real fun time eating it.
  • has lifelong rigid posture…he starts getting teased about how straight he stands so he tries to slouch but when he feels like he’s slouching he actually doesn’t look like he’s slouching lol
  • definitely a super physical stimmer. especially when he’s happy or feeling good he’s gotta pound it out. he’ll get like bursts of energy where he has to like sprint somewhere or something. he’s totally in his element when he’s training.
  • and he usually has music blaring in his headphones while he’s doing this so he scares people whizzing past like a bullet with loud music lmao

anyway halfway through this stopped being tailored to his character and just became “which of my traits have i not projected yet” but OH WELL at least it’s authentic thanks for asking lol

He who hesitates

Based on that food truck Klance photo that’s been circulating :)


Keith wasn’t one for crowds.

They were loud, pushy, and had no concept of personal space, and it was on more than one occasion that he found himself glaring down several people who fell into those categories.

It had been better that morning, when only the early risers and keeners were out and about, sporting whatever festival merchandise they had somehow already managed to secure. T-shirts with band names in large print, flags and scarves with music quotes, and the ever abundant ball caps that were handed out willy-nilly by festival volunteers. Keith had one of the latter, but the gaudy bright colours were not really his style.

Unfortunately the others had outvoted him for their group photo, which had been posted to both Shiro’s, Matt’s, and Allura’s Instagrams. Pidge had more or less been on the same page as Keith, blatantly opposing the fluorescent pink and blue head gear with ‘Altean Summers Fest’ written on the front, but, being the younger members, had no say in the matter.

Selection Characters sorted into their Hogwarts Houses

So I’ve seen a lot of other fandoms do this, and I don’t believe I’ve seen anyone else do this (correct me if I’m wrong) but I’d like to sort our favorite selected and royals into their hogwarts houses! Me and @skylars-selection worked very hard, and credit to her for having great input! I’m basing these off of the house descriptions and if you have anything to add, anything you think should be changed, or anything at all, feel free to add onto this post! Without further ado…

(It will be formatted like this:)
Character: house: reason why:

America Singer/ Schreave: Gryffindor: She’s very daring and brave, often known for doing stupid things.

Maxon Schreave: Hufflepuff: Maxon is incredibly patient with America and he’s a very hard worker.

Aspen Leger: Gryffindor: Aspen is daring, brave (he risks his life as a guard) and he has hella a lot of nerve.

Lucy Leger: Hufflepuff: Lucy has been working to survive since she was a young girl, she’s very loyal to America, and she works very hard at everything she does.

Kriss Ambers: Ravenclaw: She’s very intelligent, I mean she was a part of the rebels and was able to infiltrate the selection without anyone realizing. She’s also very witty.

Celeste Newsome: Slytherin: Celeste is so cunning and ambitious, she was able to get innocent little Maxon into a full on make-out session. She had a huge plan for how to win the selection and was close to winning.

Marlee Tames/ Woodwork: Gryffindor: My original thought was Hufflepuff but one of their main qualities is loyalty and… well you know why that doesn’t work. I think she’s a Gryffindor because she was very brave and daring to be with Carter and take that canning. (Sky thinks she should be Hufflepuff still.)

Carter Woodwork: Gryffindor: He’s risking his life as a guard and also by having an affair with a selected. This just makes sense.

Elise Whisks: Slytherin: Elise was raised from birth to be intelligent and she’s very driven to be perfect, even though it isn’t her choice.

Clarkson Schreave: Slytherin: Not to enforce the whole “Slytherins are evil trope” but Clarkson is very ambitious, hungry for power, and he’s also very cunning.

Amberly Schreave: Hufflepuff: Amberly is loyal beyond belief to her husband, even after he cheats (although she might not have known, it’s still remarkable she stayed by him through everything he has likely done. She must’ve suspected something) and she was originally a 4, and she valued hard work.

Eadlyn Schreave/ Koskinen: Slytherin: Eady is ambitious and driven to be great, granted it’s because she has big shoes to fill, but I feel like that’s most Slytherins. She’s also very stubborn.

Ahren Schreave: Gryffindor: He acts on impulse, not thinking of consequences. He’s driven to do brave and daring things, and he’s very chivalrous.

Camille de Sauveterre/ Schreave: Hufflepuff: She is pure and loyal to Ahren, going as far to elope with him. Eady says she always appears calm and collected, like stuff doesn’t get to her and she’s just very charming and easy going. (Sky brought up that on the other side of things it takes a lot of poise and intelligence to uphold this demeanor, possibly making her Ravenclaw).

Kaden Schreave: Ravenclaw: Hands down, no doubt in my mind, Kaden is the living embodiment of a Ravenclaw. He has a constant thirst for knowledge and just has a true passion for learning.

Josie Woodwork/ Schreave: Slytherin/ Hufflepuff?: Josie has always been into being in power and claiming the bit of power she does have. However, I’m caught in a crossroad because after she let that go I feel like she’s definitely a Hufflepuff because she works hard to help Eady and she’s loyal. Tell me which you think.

Osten Schreave: Slytherin: Osten is very mischievous and cunning, sneaking around and pranking everyone all the time. He’s driven to create chaos.

Kile Woodwork: Ravenclaw: Kile is very into architecture and learning and being intelligent. He’s also very witty and sarcastic.

Fox Wesley: Hufflepuff: Fox is really good natured and very much go with the flow. He plays fair and always tries to lighten the mood and he’s a hard-worker.

Hale Garner: Gryffindor: He’s a brave dude, I mean when he first met Eady he was very upfront and bold. He also stepped in nobly when the people threw tomatoes at her.

Ean Cabel: Ravenclaw: We don’t know an astounding amount about Ean, but we do know he offered Eady a deal, one logically based instead of passion based. He also got quite a few of the trivia questions right and we know he writes. I would say he’s very intelligent.

Henri Jaakoppi: Hufflepuff: Henri is all around a very easy going, loyal, and patient guy. He works hard to learn English and he’s always so dedicated to his cooking.

Eikko Koskinen: Ravenclaw: He is fluent in two languages, which is no easy feat. He is also incredibly witty and has a very intelligent aspect to him. I also contemplated Hufflepuff for his ability to calm Eady, but I feel Ravenclaw is more accurate. Do you agree?

Marid Illea: Slytherin: I think it’s safe to say that this one is obvious. Marid went far out of his way to try and ‘seduce’ Eady purely for the crown and throne. He even tried convincing the media of it. He’s cunning in his tactics, seeming like a good guy at first before turning when Eadlyn wouldn’t cooperate.

Also, a note. I think a lot of the palace staff are Hufflepuff, due to their hardworking, and I think a lot of palace guards are Gryffindor, due to putting their lives at risk for the royal family; that’s very brave. Of course this isn’t true in every case, just in a general aspect. 

So here is my completed list! Forgive me if I’ve forgotten a character, it’s midnight and I am exhausted. So again, feel free to voice your opinions. I really want to know what you guys think. Is this accurate? Anything that should be changed? Thanks guys!

//I wish I had the energy to be here but I just… Don’t. I’m going to be taking a few days away from my RP blogs for the most part, because I’m just not in a good mental state recently.

I only have muse for one thread, the one I just replied to, and it’ll be the only thing I’ll reply to till I feel mentally stable enough to do much, most likely. And that reply alone took me an hour to feel it was good as it could be.

Though honestly, putting my muses through some suffering does help me out a little. I should do more angsty stuff here.

May you succumb to my power

Everyone always joked about the world coming to an end. They always laughed and made fun of those people who walked around with signs that said the end is near. Yet they fought amongst each other over the most foolish of things. Humans were weak, and with how they filled the world with hatred, it was only reasonable that they soon fell. A disease spread along humanity, affecting only the weak. Natural selection of sorts. Human began to fight amongst themselves over this as well. Earth was a joke. The big man upstairs had abandoned them long ago, allowing him to take it as his own play thing. 

It happened to be a particularly cloudy day when the portal from hell opened and demons began to take out humans left and right. Army’s tried to stop him but it never worked. They just fell to his feet. Allen stepped into a patch of grass, his white hair flickering around in the breeze. The sounds of humans screaming was like music to his ears. The weak fell to the strong and it took a week at most to take fifty percent of the population. He found that those who wanted to live betrayed those they loved. Ah…what a sight. Earth was his. 

Two years went on, and he was unopposed. As a result, he let humans live. They lived as livestock and were kept in slums and ghettos. Anyone who spoke of rebellion was killed on sight. Although, unknown to Allen and his followers, there was a rebellion group building up and getting ready to fight back. Instead, Allen paid more mind to the power hungry demons who tried to take him out so they could have the position of power. He easily took them out, not once moving from his spot on the throne made just for him by humans who wanted to live. 

The male looked defenseless. He wasn’t tall or muscular to be exact, but he was a force to be reckoned with. Everyone who opposed him fell at his feet without the help of guards. It wasn’t until a group of people were caught lurking around the area and brought to their knees in front of…a kid? Humanity fell to some kid who looked like he was playing ruler? Maybe the king was pulling the strings behind this kid? Although the mark over his left eye said otherwise. Allen gazed at Dino with an amused look, and a smirk twisted up the corners of his lips. 

“Who do we have here? Humanities hope?” He asked with a smirk.

💞

What’s your OTP for your Muse?:

With canon romances, my favorite is definitely Kerfaff/Felix

What are you willing to RP when it comes to shipping?:

I’m willing to do most things, though atm I won’t roleplay nsfw (mostly just because I have no experience writing sex. I am perfectly fine with answering nsfw asks ooc though), and I’m not comfortable roleplaying abusive or overly unhealthy relationships

How large does the age gap have to be to make it uncomfortable?:

I generally go by the “half plus seven” rule, where you cut the older person’s age in half and add seven to get the youngest age their LI can be

Are you selective when shipping?:

Sort of, but sort of not? Really, the only requirement are that I think the characters have/could have chemistry together, and it fits with their sexual orientations, anything else is just semantics.

How far do steamy moments have to go before they’re considered NSFW?:

My rule of thumb: if their clothes are off then it’s nsfw (with the two main caveats being 1. nudity in a non-sexual context is fine—though I might still tag it “nsfw” just to be safe—and 2. sex with the clothes on is still sex)

Who are other Muses you ship your Muse with?:

Cethric/Raziayl (@smuggler-captain) and Kahss/Xicca (@happyclones), and maybe a couple others that I’m too shy to interact with yet

Does one have to ask to ship with you?:

Not necessarily. Both my oc/oc ships happened pretty organically, so if you want to ship our characters, just shoot me a rp meme or two and we’ll see where it goes from there, or if you’d rather check with me first, go ahead and ask. And don’t feel bad if I don’t think my oc would reciprocate yours’ feelings—I’m more than happy rping friendships, and who knows, it’s totally possible that I might change my mind after seeing them interact.

How often do you like to ship?:

[insert shrug emoji here] I’m not great at romantic relationships when it’s just me writing solo (or irl, but that’s another conversation entirely), but rping them has been pretty fun so far!

Are you multiship?:

It depends on the character. For, say, Corin or Kahss, I’m totally fine with it, but for Kerfaff that’s a definitive no. When in doubt, feel free to ask me :)

Are you ship obsessed or ship more-or-less?:

[insert another shrug emoji here] Not typically, but if a ship really grabs my heart I can be. You should have seen the way I was grinning like a drunk idiot when Raz kissed Cethric, or when Xicca confessed her feelings for Kahss! :)

What is your favorite ship in your current fandom?:

Canon, it’s f!JC/Lt. Iresso. Non-canon, it’s probably Corin/Minzie

Finally, how does one ship with you?:

Like I said before, the two times it’s happened so far have been semi-unplanned, but if you’re more comfortable plotting things with me beforehand, go for it! Otherwise, odds are it won’t be hard to tell if my muse is interested in yours :)

Holding hands

I just kinda wanna have a hand to hold. And I want to get really excited about getting to hold that hand. Bubbly, giggly, the whole nine yards. It doesn’t even have to be a select person. In any sort of romantic way.

I just think every person who wants to have their hand held should. It’s just that sense of comfort you get. It’s not “Oh, this person will stay by me forever”, no, it’s not that, it’s the “This person is with me right now. And I can enjoy the /right now/. This hand is right now my comfort line.”

I just think that would be really great, and fulfilling, and all kinds of wonderful.

Notice;

I will be dropping majority of my drafts just of the sake of stress and how much time has passed (+ being busy with work and just sleeping as of late).  So, I will be working on a small open starter for anyone to respond to if they wish, because I feel so horrible that I have neglected just about every fucking thing I have done as of late. Life does funny shit to people, man.

I might start some sort of selectivity with who I respond to on what day, but I will be sure to respond to everything that I can in that moment that my muse feels up for. She’s lately been a romance type muse, but I am going to work on slowing that down for my sanity.

Anyway, expect that open soon. This next week shouldn’t be too heavy with work, so I will be somewhat around to do responses. 

Again, I am sorry.

As soon as it starts getting to undressing.

WHO ARE OTHER MUSES YOU SHIP YOUR MUSE WITH?

DOES ONE HAVE TO ASK TO SHIP WITH YOU?:

Some ships just naturally develop (like the OTPs), but I think I’d feel better if I was asked because then it let’s met know the other mun is interested, and I’m too shy sometimes so–

How can elected officials rage about deficits when we propose to spend money on preschool for kids, but not when we’re cutting taxes for corporations?  How do we excuse ethical lapses in our own party, but pounce when the other party does the same thing?  It’s not just dishonest, this selective sorting of the facts: it’s self-defeating.  Because, as my mom used to tell me, reality has a way of catching up with you.

Take the challenge of climate change… We can and should argue about the best approach and solve the problem.  But to simply deny the problem not only betrays future generations – it betrays the spirit of this country.

What’s your OTP for your Muse?: So far Toasted Caramel/Salted Chocolate/Star Security, the OT4, Stolen Sugar, AsterxMagus, the OT3. (I love a few others as well)

What are you willing to RP when it comes to shipping?: Pretty much near everything, the world ain’t pretty so sometimes RPs can’t be pretty either. Definitely not incest, pedophilia, necrophillia. But the rest I can manage; hate ships to ‘controlled’ ships I’m open to. (those will be put in read more if does get graphic)

How large does the age gap have to be to make it uncomfortable?: Well… anyone who’s pretty much still a child. Like pretty much 17 and below are a total no, 18 and higher welcome hellfire.

Are you selective when shipping?: Sort of, like I’m open to it all but some I don’t care for really.

How far do steamy moments have to go before they’re considered NSFW?: Touching of the lower regions, clothed or not. Mention of sexual organs, Breasts aren’t sexual organs men have them too and show them off as well. 

Who are other Muses you ship your Muse with?: Alomancy, several Vincents, a Bakura, a Magus, Tomonari, Hadeki, Themis, and a few others.

Does one have to ask to ship with you?: Sort of yes and sort of no. Like you can throw at me, it’s a bit easier to develop to it to me though.

How often do you like to ship?: Well, I’m for all kinds of shipping. Somedays I don’t want to write any, and just want an interaction based rp. But I do like doing friendships, brotps, hate ships (course none have been rped yet publically), and romantic ships.

Are you multiship?: I am a multishipper, I like have a collection of ships.

Are you ship obsessed or ship more-or-less?: I actually don’t know, I am more or less loving of development whether there is a full blown ship there or not

What is your favorite ship in your current fandom?: *shrugs* the majority of my muses are my ocs that don’t really belong to anything. At most… I kind of like tendershipping but that’s on my Ryou rp blog @shattered-soulxcard-made-pieces and that so far is the only ship on there so far due to it being so new and me being so awkward. (my box is safe, I’m scared to get out ~says the cat)

Finally, how does one ship with you?: Just throw your muse at me and we’ll see what happens, though I will say Aster is sometimes really difficult and other times he’s pretty easy. (He is still volatile though)

Welcome to hell~
