A shiver of arousal ran down Judy’s spine, almost killing every futile attempt of further resistance. “Nick…” she breathed, desperately. How could someone listen to that unfairly low, silky voice and still preserve their self-control? “W-we should go… we’re blocking traffic…”
“It’s 3 in the morning” he murmured against her neck, “and the only thing you’re blocking is my blatant and irreverent attempt to seduce you, officer Hopps. Are you not at all sorry for your partner?”

Your art is so aesthetically pleasing! I was wondering if you could tell how you draw folds? I mean, how to understand them, I'm terrible at them and look super stiff and unnatural ... if you don't want to, I understand, and I hope I didnt bother you! have an amazing day <3

Thank you so much! I’m sorry this took me approximately 10 years to answer, you’ve probably mastered clothing folds by now and dont need advice from a pleb like me but!! here i am anyway! 
The usual disclaimer: I haven’t done a proper study of folds in a loong time, now that I’ve left art school I mainly have been focusing on my own stylized art so I’m pretty rusty. That being said, observation and practicing from life is the best way to learn! It doesnt even have to be clothes (though fashion studies are the best and i realize now I should have done some for this tutorial and I am a fool) but just placing cloths over random objects and drawing them can help you learn how cloth works with different shapes. And since the body is essentially made up of a bunch of geometric shapes, this will translate over to clothing!
But yeah, this tutorial is pretty hypocritical since I dont always pay attention to fleshing out folds in my art hehe 

Let’s start by introducing Blank Slate-chan or Blank-chan for short uwu
I’ve given her a Tshirt, and it looks okay but its a little flat. It looks more drawn on then anything.

Right off the bat, before we even begin to cover folds, we can add some details that make the shirt pop off the character. For instance seams on the collar, shoulders and bottom (though I didnt add any on the bottom in the example) and rolled up sleeves/like those fake rolled up cuffs that are sews on to tshirts can already add depth. Furthermore I’ve added some cast shadow from the oversized sleeves onto the arm, and the shirt separated from her skin at the top so its resting on it rather than looking like it’s part of her body.
Seams can be especially important when indicating what kind of fabric or style of a piece of clothing your character is wearing. I find them especially helpful in separating jeans from say dress pants, as well as formal clothes. It helps to observe and thing about how a piece of apparel is sewn together to determine where you want to draw the seams. 

Okay this mess of arrows is my fault but bear with me ;v; In this portion I’ve now moved on to folds. Before we get into the details of the image, there are 3 forces that affect folds, and you should keep them in mind when drawing. Those forces are gravity, compression, and stretch. I’ve color coded each of these forces, though stretch is not shown in this image.
So first off the purple arrows represent the force of gravity. This is always going to be a force on earth and cause folds from handing fabric like in between the chest or at the looser areas of the shirt.
Then the blue is compression. I don’t have a good example of it here since I’m drawing mostly lose fabric, but its where the cloth bunches up because its met with two forces moving towards each other. In this (poor) example, the clothes are slightly compressed because Blank-chan’s arms are down, preventing the fabric from extending all the way down. I drew up arrows but its not so much as a force moving up as it is the fabric being caught. A better example of this would be tighter fabric gathered around a joint like jeans around a knee when its bending. If you can visualize that you’ve pretty much got the idea.
Honestly, don’t let all this force stuff confuse you! I know I didn’t explain it amazingly, but you kind of get used to was looks more natural as you draw more fabric.
And lastly the red arrows are just to point out that you need more than just suggestions of folds. Like the collar of the shirt sitting on the skin, the shirt will bend if there are folds so make sure you draw it sticking out rather than just being flat.

For the sake of an example let’s give Blank-chan a slightly bigger chest and some tighter clothes. The shirt is a little more formfitting and so it stretches over the chest. Cloth that is stretches usually has folds that are more horizontal or vertical depending on the points of tension. With tighter clothes, more of the anatomy shows through which is why you should always consider what the body is doing underneath. Though this still applies to looser clothing and you should be considering the body, you can get away with anatomical errors more easily which, confession, I do a lot.
I prefer wearing and drawing looser clothes, so I’m not an expert on tight shirts and folds. Even this shirt I’ve drawn in this example is pretty loose but you can always change it as you see fit.

Here’s a comparison of the two without the messy arrows and with some additional shading. Shading can really help define even more shapes and bring depth to the folds, but that falls more under a coloring tutorial so I won’t go into that too much.
You can of course exaggerate either of the two examples, either making the clothes a lot looser and adding way more folds or making the fabric tighter and adding more compression folds and showing the form through the clothes. Be careful with adding too many folds though, as it will either looks too crowded or like your character is soaked, unless you’re going for that. 

And then last few tips that I wasn’t sure where to put. If you’ve notice, a lot of the fabrics I draw tend to look heavier, like sweaters. In this super messy example you can see that adding tons of compression folds and making the fold rounder makes the fabric look heavier. Like wise using maybe more gravity folds and sharper/thinner edges may make the fabric look lighter!
When drawing folds I like to use triangles to represent them. I think those shapes tend to look the most natural. Again, you can round those off or sharpen them depending, its all up to you! 

mm, this is a pretty basic tutorial, and there’s lots more information that I could talk about like materials, different styles of clothing, etc etc but I think this is enough to start out with? I hope I helped at least a little and remember that fashion studies are your friend!

jonghyun: when i think of my mom in my head …, her age stopped at thirty six. she was in university at that age and (because of that) she’s always at that age in my head. there was a time when i got sad because of her. there was a time when i stayed abroad for a long time due to a schedule and came back home. i came back and my mom was in the hospital. she had received surgery on her knee. the surgery had been scheduled in advance before i left, but she didn’t tell me about it. so, she received the surgery and was hospitalized for the recovery while i was away. i came back and saw her in the hospital and she looked so … tired and much older than how i see her in my head. i felt really sorry, but a little bit disappointed too. i thought she should’ve told me as i’m her son but, on the other hand, i knew she didn’t tell me because i was going abroad for work. when she was younger …, (pause) no, when i was younger, she used to tell me every little thing but since i’ve gotten older and have had more things to take care of that are related to work i think she doesn’t tell me everything so i don’t have to worry about things that happen within the family. looking at her in the hospital …, it made me experience a lot of complex feelings. although we cannot stop our parents from aging, or getting sick or going through troubles …, i think we should try to delay the process as much as we can. (ie: by helping them out when they need help, ect.) (source: thatcoolcatmeow)

NDRV3 Transcripts: Chapter 2 Part 1

Translation is still ongoing, but I’ve decided to go ahead and upload part 1 of Chapter 2! I know a lot of people have been waiting on a full translation of the game and currently @shinjiroaragaki, @ne0dym​, and I are working to bring you all one!

A huge thanks to @hajimikimo​ for helping us out with this project and providing us with the special events! Anyone who hasn’t yet read a full English translation of the prologue and Chapter 1 should check out her translations, which were subtitled with permission by Thelifeliketextube on YouTube. You can watch here.

If any of you could help spread this around, reblog, link to it, etc., that would help a lot! All of us are working very hard to bring you a full translation, and it’s been a really fun undertaking so far.

Anyway, please enjoy! I can’t possibly include the whole chapter here on Tumblr, so it’s Google doc only this time. I won’t discuss spoilers here, but there are (obviously) spoilers for Chapter 1, so read at your own risk!

More translated transcripts.

Adding translations to videos on YouTube is NOT there for you to put in inaccuracies and jokes.

I just needed to emphasize this because Emma worked very hard and very quickly to add subtitles on Soraru and Mafumafu’s most recent video, just for the sake of us English viewers. Understand that these fan translators aren’t paid or anything of the sort; they do this on their own time, just to help other people. This should already be obvious, but I don’t think people understand that. I repeat: THEY DO THIS ON THEIR OWN TIME TO HELP OTHER PEOPLE—OTHER FANS. Emma has been translating utaite content for quite awhile now, and from what I know from all the times I’ve spoken to her, she’s been nothing but considerate, precise, thorough, productive, hardworking; need I say more? This doesn’t even just apply to Emma alone. There are so, so many translators that work to the best of their ability, just because they want to help international fans like themselves.

To explain: YouTube has a new(?) feature that allows its viewers to add title/description translations. They’ve also had the CC/Subtitling feature around for awhile. These are both being utilized by fan translators so we can understand what’s going on in the video. However, we can’t do that if ‘fans’ are too busy messing around, adding jokes/memes/etc. to the translations just for the fun of it. Those who are doing it might believe it’s harmless; that it’s just 'haha I’m making a funny joke that other fans will find amusing'—no. By doing this, you’re literally hindering other English fans from understanding the content.

Two recent examples include: someone changing Mafumafu’s Comet Honeymoon video description to 'pwease like and subscribe’ when literally all it says is 'mosu’. Another is on the video I linked earlier; someone changed the video title to '2 boyfriends play…’. The second example ESPECIALLY infuriates me, because not even more than 3 days ago did Mafumafu and Soraru state how they were uncomfortable with some 'shipping’; then someone has the nerve to outright ship them IN THE TITLE 'TRANSLATION’? Really outrageous.

All of this nonsense can easily make Soraru think, 'ah, people are misusing the feature… I should disable it on my videos’, and just like that, there goes our translation accessibility. And this doesn’t just affect us, the English community. Fans from places like Korea, China, Indonesia, etc. can utilize these features too; I’ve already seen some different translations up on their videos. But if the English community keeps messing around and messing up the translations, it’ll simply ruin it for everyone. Not to mention the utaites and the translators. Undoubtedly, utaite want to break the language barrier between them and their international fans. Having to turn off this new feature would just be disappointing to them. For the translators? There goes hours of timing, translating, checking, etc. all down the drain. All because people wanted to joke around with their memes.

“Why can’t the translators just create a new video with hard subtitles?” you might ask, if you’re newer to the community. While this seems like the simple solution, many utaites have EXPLICITLY asked their fans not to reprint their videos (this doesn’t apply to all utaites!!!). It takes away views, likes, comments, and more from the original video. If you really claim to be a fan of ATR, you’d respect their wishes and move on. Simple as that.

This new feature can be really beneficial, but it’ll only prove to be a nuisance if people don’t stop this… for example, if other translators were to add onto another translation, perhaps to make it more accurate or to clarify something, then great! That’s exactly how this should be utilized. But we can’t enjoy the content if people are messing up the translations.

Needless to say, this is really upsetting to see that people have the need to mess around on actual translations. TL;DR: please respect translators, uploaders, and fellows fans by NOT messing around with the 'add translations/subtitles’ features on videos.

You ever just think about this scene from Kill la Kill, where Ryuko falls unconscious and Senketsu can’t hold her or carry her but ties his arm into a knot just so he can bring her to safety? And how Senketsu pushes himself so hard to pull Ryuko along, because even if concept art implies he works out and wants so much to be strong, he still can only do so much with the body he was given?

Because I do and oh gosh he loves her so damn much.

Idk if I can describe what I mean but I keep thinking back to Cait's outfit last night & I can't get over how AMAZING she looked. That outfit's tricky. On most it'd look too slutty. Or they were trying too hard to be sexy. Not Her. It's more than her blessed bod. How she carries herself maybe? Idk but she owned it, looked amazing/beautiful/not at all cocky/conceited. Confident. Proud. Things women should showcase more. I hope her success continues so she can spread her positivity w/ more reach.

omg I had the EXACT same thoughts. I didn’t love it initially bc tbh it looked like a slutty Juicy Couture sweatsuit but holy shit she knows how to work literally anything and she looked SO HOT. I was so in awe looking at her in person I hope it translated into pictures. and HER ABS jesus fuck I cannot stop staring at that crease in her abs. like what the fuck woman. 

anyway yes yes yes I agree w everything you said. She’s such a fantastic role model. I’m back to hardcore stanning her and I give no fucks. 

anonymous asked:

Hi, what do you think about schools in England teaching Welsh as a second language ? Also what do you think could be done to encourage more people in Wales to study Welsh at a level ? I am doing a project looking at how we could improve the number of a level students studying languages. Thank You

Hello! Personally, I think every country in the world should teach the languages of its native populations in its schools, because that’s a huge part of native multiculturalism; I think that goes triply or more for imperialistic powers, though, where a dominant culture actively attempted to eradicate others. So if you’re American, you should be learning a regionally appropriate Native language; if you’re Swedish, you should learn a Sami language. And if you’re English, you should be learning Welsh, or Scots Gaelic, or Irish.

And I don’t even mean it should be taught to fluency, necessarily, not that any language other than English is taught to fluency in England (although I 100% think the resources should be in place to allow people to study it further if they choose). I think a module that teaches each of those for a term would actually be fine, along with the respective cultures; because, as evidenced by that cringing racist the other day, the fact is that English people have completely isolated themselves in their little cultural bubble and have absolutely no clue about any other native British culture at all. And when you try to tell them, they actively reject the facts and tell you you’re wrong. They literally don’t believe you. It’s like trying to tell an MRA that women did actually exist and do stuff in history. School never taught them that, and implied the opposite, and therefore it can’t be true, you know?

Spend a term learning basic, conversational Welsh. Greetings, how to ask for shit in shops, directions. Learn our myths. Learn our culture, our social conventions, our music, Eisteddfodau. And for the love of all that’s holy, learn our history, you know? All the oppression and the bloodshed; all the triumphs and inventions. England knows none of it, and then we get disgusting imperialists like Tumblr user loki_zen who invent their own narrative based on absolutely nothing except their own prejudices and then think they get to define us and impose value judgements on us.

Unfortunately, not only have I never heard of a school in England teaching Welsh (other than the London Welsh school, which the government literally closed down for not being English enough), but if every I suggest the above to an English person their reaction is one of visceral hatred for the very idea. People like to stay on their pedestals, I think. But for my money, if you belong to a culture that violently and intentionally oppressed another, the fucking least you can do is teach it to your own citizens and help to save it; especially since language and culture are so inextricably linked in these cases, regardless of what the loki_zens of this world want to believe. Anything else is morally repugnant and completely indefensible. 

In answer to your second question, though; tricky. What you’re asking is slightly different, see, from how do we encourage more people to learn the language? Instead, it’s how do we get people to study an A Level in it?, and I imagine there are broader sociological factors at play there. When I was choosing my A Levels (2002-2004), the economy was booming and we were all told to choose what interested us. I chose Welsh, Art, Psychology and Classics. But then the recession came, and suddenly there was a scramble for everyone to do maths and sciences, to make themselves Recession-proof. So that sort of thing needs taking into account.

But then, you can work with that. A lot of young people now are trying to take courses that will get them a job afterwards, and there are whole sectors that want Welsh at least in part. Teaching, the environment, politics, a lot of business, lots of public sector stuff… There’s loads, and that’s before you get to the more obvious stuff like translation. The majority of Wales is working class, with people who don’t want to move out or leave their home areas. Tell them that Welsh will help them get a job, and I think that would help.

For me, I think, it was about identity. My Welsh teacher for GCSE (thank god) was actually very good, and used to do her best to talk about her culture while teaching us the language, and combining the two - as, of course, all of them should have. And then she took us all on a field trip up to North Wales, to stay in Nant Gwrtheyrn and visit Hedd Wyn’s house and all that. We stopped in at Cilmeri on the way to visit the site of Llywelyn the Last’s murder, and there were flowers on it that someone had laid. That was when I personally realised, I think, that there truly was this whole other culture running parallel to my own that I wanted to see and experience, and so I did. I chose Welsh at A Level, which became a degree (joint with Celtic Studies), which became… me, I suppose. I am now married to a man so Welsh-speaking he only learned English at 15. We got married in Welsh. I have Welsh-speaking friends. This is an integral part of who I am.

15-year-old me was, as all teenagers are, looking for an identity, and Welsh gave me that.

The other thing that does come to mind, though, is the concept of opportunities. And I don’t mean jobs, because we’ve already covered that - I mean cultural stuff that you can’t do in English, because you language hop when something comes up that you can’t do in the one you’re currently using (one of the many arguments in favour of multilingualism.) Stuff like computer games, VR, interactive escape room-style experiences, music gigs, interactive have-a-go music workshops; all done in learner-friendly Welsh settings. I think a fusion, bilingual youth culture is needed in Wales; something new, and alive, that’s inclusive and encouraging and means people want to go out and learn a bit more so they can do more. Like… I never even knew what Cerdd Dant was until I became a Welsh speaker. Introduce the concept of that. Make something new. 

All of that’s a bit nebulous, though, so probably the first two points will suit you better!

So, TL;DR: I 100% think schools in England should be teaching Celtic languages and cultures and offering the opportunity to learn more if requested; and I think the two big drivers for encouraging students to take Welsh A Levels are future employment prospects and identity. And also some ill-defined bollocks about cultural fusion.

Hope this helped!

[TRANS] 151128 Youngjae’s Instagram Updates

FROM Youngjae
Hello it’s GOT7’s Youngjae
Haha I’m not sure how I should write this “thanks to” letter. Mmm i think I have more to be sorry about than thankful. Mm First of all, the reason I was able to become a GOT7 member was mostly because of my parents and my company. My parents are really important to me. I haven’t been able to express it as much to my mom and dad, but I think I’m doing okay at it. Until I got to be part of GOT7, I’ve had a lot of troubles with my parents haha I’m sure no one would’ve expect things to become like this.

When I first passed my audition, what can I say, I’m still young but I was even younger then, so I cried..ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ As soon as I passed, I called them, and seeing them happy for me made me feel really.. you know ㅎㅎㅎ To be honest, my parents didn’t want me to become a singer. They just wanted me to study, get a good job and have a stable life. Our family is actually struggling financially, but at the time I asked them to help me get vocal/singing lessons because I wanted to become a singer~ told them I’m going to learn to sing and made a fuss about it. I went to take lessons for a little bit in 8th grade, then had a hard time going due to issues at home, but I wanted to learn again during Sophomore year in high school so I really tried to persuade them haha. Regardless of knowing what I’m doing, they gave me allowance and I even worked part-time jobs without telling them haha. I’m still sorry for the things I did back then and would like to let them know I thank them through this letter (smile) (smile) And then I somehow came across JYPE audition! At first I didn’t pass. But they suddenly contacted me after a year and told me I passed, so I was really happy. Thinking back again and talking about it still makes me happy.. When I started practice, I couldn’t stay in Seoul the entire time. The days I was able to stay in Seoul for practice were Fri-Mon and I had to go back to Mokpo for the rest of the week, but the bus fare was pretty expensive. I received 100,000 won to go back and forth every week, but one day my dad didn’t have enough so he gave me 80,000 won. I told him it wasn’t enough and that I needed more. Honestly, 80,000 won was more than enough for food and bus fare, but you know there is the regular bus and the premium bus– for some reason I insisted on taking the premium bus every time. Taking the regular bus from Mokpo to Seoul would’ve cost me 20,500 won, but the premium bus fare was 30,400 won.. I remember it exactlyㅋㅋ

I begged and begged just to ride that bus and my dad would get angry at me while breaking the piggy bank, but it didn’t make me feel good (/satisfied). I felt bad, but I wanted more.. Whenever I reminisce those days now, I wonder why I was acting that way. I’m still young, but I guess I was just even younger. I don’t know if my parents would remember these things, but whenever I think back, I want to cry because I feel so remorseful. I was too young to realize then, but I’m always sorry and thankful, mom and dad! After all that, I practiced harder and became part of GOT7!! I thought, wow did I really finally debut? My parents came to see me on the day of our debut and hugged me tight.. Bear with me for rambling on but anyway!! I really wanted to tell my parents I thank them very much. I love you, mom and dad. It feels strange for someone like me to say this, but let’s all be good to our parents!

Also to all the Ahgases who always watch over us whether from afar or up close, if all of you weren’t here, we wouldn’t be either. I’m very thankful and think you’re all lovely for supporting us with love no matter what we do. I ask you to continue to love us just as you have all this time. We’ll keep working hard and become amazing singers for Ahgases. Thank you, sorry and thank you again. This became really serious unlike my personality.ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Ahgase and GOT7, let’s keep going like this~~ I love you

Ahhhh and when we recently won first place wowwowaang honestly, I didn’t cry.. Rather than wanting to cry, you know that feeling of “wow it’s so overwhelming, no joke, are you sure the singer who won first place isn’t someone else??” And wow, everyone thank you so much. This doesn’t come easily and it was possible because of all your love for us. So I’m going to work even harder to do better, although the thought makes me worried at the same time. We’ll keep trying and show even better sides of us. I truly love you, IGOT7!

Ah also.. Those who are fluent in English, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, and other languages, please translate this. Our Ahgases are all smart, so you can do it! ㅋㅋㅋ Ah is this too much of a mission.. It’s because I think those from other countries can have fun reading and be happy from the translations. Anyway I love you!

Who else is there.. Friends haha I don’t have that many friends ㅠㅠㅠㅠ I came to Seoul during my Junior year and I was really lonely. I had no one until around my Senior year, when a really close hyung of mine came up to Seoul and started taking lessons! Or maybe I’m wrong. Anywho when I was in Mokpo, he took good care of me and we listened to each other’s worries, so I was really glad when he came up to Seoul too. Even though he isn’t blood-related, I’m just as comfortable around him; we talked a lot and he gave good advice when I went through hard times, and overall he made my experience in Seoul less difficult huhu. I wasn’t able to tell that hyung I thank him ㅋㅋㅋㅋ but hopefully he’ll read this and know I’m thankful ㅋㅋㅋ!

Speaking of hyung, to my real hyung! My hyung is now my vwaitwamin (vitamin) that gives me strength. He can tell if something’s wrong from just the tone of my voice, it’s scary sometimes.. Once I called him on a rough day and he constantly asked if something happened and ha (sigh) ㅠㅠㅠㅠ hyung always knows me best *tears* ㅋㅋㅋㅋ ah I’m crying too much in this letter ㅋㅋ That’s how close I was (/am) with my hyung. Oh that doesn’t mean I’m not close with my noona or anything, but I should write about her as well. Or else she’ll be upset ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅎㅎㅎ

Actually it was my noona’s birthday not too long ago ㅠㅠ after my schedule I completely forgot about it and didn’t call her, but she called me first. Then I remembered right away ㅠㅠ I’m still trying to decide what to do for her. She says it’s okay but I want to do something.. I told her “happy birthday” through kakaotalk along with an ugly picture of me, and my noona wa very happy. If I get some days off soon, I’m planning to bring a gift to her ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Whew.. I wrote to those I’m thankful for and about the things I’ve been through, and it’s not too much or too little, but it seems I’ve had many ups and downs in life ㅋㅋㅋ There are probably more people I should thank, but I’ll write the second letter another time!

Everyone who’s always supporting me – my parents, hyung, noona, members, Ahgase, JYPE, my friends, other hyungs – I’ll work hard as the amount of support you’re giving me. Thank you and love you, always. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️★★❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Part 1 

Part 2

So, I’ve had this on my mind since I was introduced to Undertale and one of the first fan arts of undertale I did was Frisk as Chihiro and Asriel as Haku falling out of the sky hugging and crying. Since then I developed the idea further and this is the result.

About “Spirited Tale”

*In 211x in a small town located in the shadow of the ominous Mt Ebott, a girl named Frisk lost her shoe in a river and fell in trying to reach for it. Lucky for her, a boy named Chara saw everything, jumped in and brought her to shore. The current was swifter than he thought and he could not save himself. The young river spirit Asriel saw the mortal’s heroic deeds and saved him by taking the soul of the fallen hero into his own body. Together they became a truly powerful being, in fact, it was too much power for one body. A piece of Asriel’s soul split from the rest and landed on a flower. Everyone in the mortal world forgot about the local boy who saved a local girl, even the girl herself. The spirit world and the mortal world were never meant to mix.

*The flower gained the will to live but lacked enough soul to know how to behave. A powerful spirit named Asgore who loved flowers found it one day, saw its potential, and decided to raise it to grow big and strong. He called the flower Flowey….he wasn’t very good at naming.

*The river got replaced by apartments and Chasriel found himself with no place to call home and began to fade away. That tends to happen to spirits without a place or a purpose. Asgore found the fading river spirit, saw his great potential, and made him an apprentice so he could learn how to put his power to good use.

*A lonely but brilliant reclusive alchemist known as Wing Dings Gaster tried to use bits of his own soul and all the elements found in human bodies to make 2 companions partly to test his limits and see if it could be done, partly for his loneliness. However, he failed miserably and created a two-headed and four armed skeletal monster. What is more, the toll on his own soul was more than he could imagine and he was reduced to a shadow of himself, barely able to exist at all. Meanwhile, the creature he created was left all alone without a purpose and without a name. Asgore saw its potential, named him Sixbones, and gave him a place in the world.

* Over time, word got around of Asgore’s actions. Anyone who had nowhere to go came to him, and he accepted them all. As he did so, he noticed that many of them had had their lives uprooted by humans. He became angry at their selfishness and greed. So he devised a test for any human who wandered into his protected land. He would weed out the most greedy and selfish ones by laying out a magnificent feast. If they passed the feast by, they could go in peace. If they stayed too long, however, the anti-human barrier would eventually cause them to disappear unless some spirit gave them their blessing. If they ate food that did not belong to them, they would pay the price by turning into pigs.

*His wife Toriel thought all humans had some good in them and found his revenge scheme distasteful. They argued and argued but in the end, neither could come to an agreement.  Toriel left to live peacefully on her own in Swamp Bottom.

*This all took place over many years in the spirit realm, but only a few in the mortal realm. Time flows differently there, sometimes slower and sometimes faster. Chasriel was surprised when he saw Frisk on the bridge decades later, only a little older than she was when she had lost her shoe. In his shock, it took a moment for him to jolt into action and warn her of the dangers and another moment for her to respond in confusion to his warning. Time was against them. It had been mid-afternoon a minute ago, but it was rapidly becoming twilight. This was not the place for humans to be after dark. He had to act quickly.

***

* Asgore is a lot nicer than Ubaba and not obsessed with money

* Sixbones is by @zarla-s but this version is a lot less like an amalgamate and a lot more like Sans and Papyrus sharing one body. (Papyrus does most of the work, Sans does all of the mess)

*Frisk is called Chara when her contract is signed (the Chara part of Chasriel has long since forgotten his human name and his and Asriel’s identities are more or less merged anyway)

*Gerson is the old rich river spirit but I’m not sure how to translate that into a drawing.

*I can’t find a place for Alphys except as a side worker girl :(

*I think Onion-san should be the Radish spirit but I’m not sure.

*Chasriel is being manipulated by Flowey instead of Asgore. The manipulation ends when Toriel casts a spell and makes Flowey smaller.

#94: The “You care?” (7x16)

Let me just tell y'all, if you look up “trifling” in the dictionary you will find this moment right here. 😂

So as I mentioned before, Jadis takes trying it to new heights when she tells Michonne, “I lay with him after. You care?” 😳😑

Now this is where our gif journey really takes off. 😋

When I first heard this, my brother and I both felt that it was necessary to actually pause the TV and literally react like this…

Like what!? What in all that is cringey just happened rn? Time legit stopped for a second lol.  I couldn’t even believe this. This chick really wanted to catch a fade. 😂

Like y'all this was me ready to lead all of us into ASZ like we were Michonne’s whoadies about to roll up and check-a-chick…

Jadis all the way tried it. And “lay with him” 🙄what is this the 16th century? And I guess consent doesn’t apply in Trashland. 🤔 This was just wrong on too many levels.

And Jadis really asks “You care?” Of course Michonne cares, bruh. And according to Rick’s reaction he also cares very much lol.

Rick’s response was hilarious! Like he seems like he’s thinking, “And I thought I was in another world when I woke up from the hospital.” 😂 Like for real what planet did this chick come from? 

His face is priceless as he looks over at Michonne both like “Alright, how is my woman going to respond to this?” and also like “Michonne please tell her you care so this woman stays away from me.” Lol. He looks so lost and concerned.

Michonne’s reaction is great as well. She looks like she too can’t even believe her ears. 

Like you can tell she’s a little in shock that this woman could be so blatantly forthcoming and intrusive and also demanding and just crazy lol. Like how are you gonna talk about Rick like he’s not a human being? I know she’s thinking where did this chick come from and who does she think she is?

But Michonne fights back the more natural response, which is to warning slice this chick, and instead has a much more composed reaction. Like I said, Sis is shockingly good at keeping her eyes on the prize.

Now, I’ve always respected Michonne’s character for being so dignified, and balanced, and composed, and wise and mature. Especially considering how black women often get portrayed in the media, Michonne’s multidimensional and respectable and just all around well-rounded character is so sincerely appreciated by me. I love it. I do…But y'all…I admit, just this once I was like, “Michonne please let this woman catch these hands. Please girl. Just one time!” lol.

Cuz Michonne obviously has zero reason to be even remotely threatened by Jadis but I just wanted Jadis to know she can’t be out here in these streets disrespecting people. And what better way to learn that than a warning pop? 😋

But Michonne is a grown, mature, wise, woman so she doesn’t do that here. So what words can possibly be said in response to Jadis trying you like that? Like what could you say to that? Again, y'all, I have to admit I low key wanted Michonne to respond by saying something like this…

But Michonne is much more diplomatic and she, again, always be knowing what to say so she just gives a little smile that translates as “Watch it, boo” and she says, “We should get back to work.” Good answer. But of course. 👌🏽😊

Michonne wisely keeps things professional. Cuz 👸🏾. And once I stopped and thought about it I was like okay that’s the smarter approach, especially because at this time they still need Jadis and her people for this fight so I was like “Okay Michonne, you right as usual. We can’t pop her just yet. ” 😂 

But I was also like lemme just add one more thing to Michonne’s response right quick and tell Jadis…

Cuz this one is taken, boo. Lol I think both our responses work, right? 😂

But for real, I do appreciate that Michonne doesn’t even verbally address Jadis’s comment cuz she knows it’s nonsense. Yes Michonne feels very tried but she’s like let’s focus on why we’re all here rather than get petty. 👏🏽 That’s real focus, cuz I would have been like, “Jadis you’re dismissed, we’ll try and fight this without you.” 😂

Like Michonne is already ready to get back to work cuz this doesn’t faze her. And while she’s unbothered you also know that she will take care of Jadis with a quickness if Trash lady were to actually follow through with her statement cuz Michonne doesn’t play that. 👌🏽

I love that Michonne wastes no time feeling threatened by this. She knows there’s not a thing in the world that could get between her and Rick. Negan’s oppressive reign couldn’t even break them up so this chick def can’t.

So Michonne demonstrates a good example of how to shut down a trifling situation with class and maturity and I’m here for it. 👏🏽👸🏾🙌🏾

And then I love that as Michonne gives her queens decree to get back to work, Rick immediately cosigns and says, “Yeah” as he looks fully shooketh from the cringiness they just experienced. 😂

Rick’s response here is comedic gold. Like Michonne was able to completely refocus on the plan but you can tell Rick will need at least a second to process how odd that was. I love that he verbally cosigns with Michonne as he steps back, clearly feeling high key uncomfortable.

It’s funny that this moment is happening between these two women and Rick is just there and you can tell he’s a bit out of his element lol. He’s clearly grateful his wife is here to handle this mess.

And once again he follows after his leader and walks away. 😋 I feel like he also said that verbal “yeah” cuz he wanted to make sure he chimed in and let Jadis know that he is with Michonne, point blank and the period.

So R&M walk away and then Jadis has the nerve to look back at her people with a smirk. And I was like…

I again felt tried cuz the way it’s shot makes it low key feel like she’s looking at us lol. And I was like nah fool wipe that look off your face. Don’t disrespect us anymore than you already have. 😑

I don’t know what exactly the smirk was about. Like if it was her saying at least I tried or thinking she still has a chance. Whatever she was thinking I was like this chick needs to check herself and since she likes to “take” so much imma need her to take several seats lol. 💯

Like Jadis looks like she still didn’t get how much she just tried it. 🙄 But I’m sure that soon enough she’s going to find out. 😉👌🏽

And of course, Rick and Michonne walk away from this hilariously awkward exchange together like the magnets and unit they are. 😋

This scene really threw me for a hilarious loop when I first saw it. 😂 I just couldn’t believe the trierization lol. It’s hilariously cringey and def memorable to say the least. 👌🏽

Again, I’m just super happy that we got Michonne verbally confirming to someone that they’re together. 🙌🏾

And I like that in this scene we got to see the different ways R&M react to someone imposing on their relationship. Michonne’s all levelheaded and unfazed and Rick’s understandably a little shook. 😂 It’s cute that he’s def the more extra one in the relationship. 

And here’s to hoping we get to see Rick and Michonne talk about, or make reference to, them being a couple with other people even more in season 8, as everyone really reflects on what they’re fighting for. 🙏🏽😊

day 5 - wikipedia random article

i’ll be the first to say i cheated and kept clicking through until i found something that clicked for me, which was… WCW Women’s Cruiserweight Championship

Marinette made a clear distinction between her life as Marinette Dupain-Cheng, popular online fashion designer, and Ladybug, the WCW Women’s Crusierweight Championship title holder.

Anything to do with Ladybug, she did as Ladybug. Press conferences, fan meet-and-greets, training—she wore her mask for it all. It was the best way of keeping a relatively normal life as Marinette.

But that still meant Ladybug was a minor celebrity. She met all sorts of people in her second career and trained in a gym that was frequented by other celebrities. After running into Jagged Stone there, she was almost used to it.

Almost.

Nothing could prepare her for meeting Adrien Agreste while pummelling a punching bag.

“Hey,” he said, and his soft greeting surprised Ladybug enough for her punch to miss. Instead, she slammed her face into the leathery bag, bruising her nose. “Ah!! Are you okay?!”

“I’m fine!” Ladybug wheezed. She rubbed her nose and peeked at Adrien.

He was dressed in a white tank top and blue bike shorts, still clean and crisp. His blond hair was artfully styled away from his face, and his captivating green eyes were filled with concern.

Ladybug was abruptly aware of her soaked red sports bra and sweatpants, the results of her first hour of training.

“It’s nice, um.” She straightened up, trying not to swoon. “I-I’m Ma-Ladybug!! Just…Ladybug. Hi.”

She stuck out her hand, then realized how clammy it was and tried to pull it back. But Adrien already gripped it, his large, warm hand nearly engulfing hers, and Ladybug’s stomach swooped pleasantly as she squeezed back.

“A-Adrien Agreste,” he said. He took his hand back and rubbed it. Maybe she squeezed too hard. “Sorry to bother you when you’re working out.”

Ladybug wasn’t sure if she should be happy or not that he didn’t recognize her from the many, many fashion events they both frequented.

“I was about to take a break, anyway,” she said instead. Picking up her water bottle, Ladybug took a long drink and never noticed Adrien swallowing hard as he watched her.

“Getting ready for the mixed tag team tournament?” he asked when she finished. Ladybug sighed.

“Yeah, though I wish Chat Noir was here, we need more practice—”

Ladybug blinked, rewound the conversation in her head, and turned to look at Adrien.

“You know about that?” she asked.

Adrien’s cheeks pinked. Ladybug stared as he let out a little chuckle and rubbed his nape, still trying to wrap her mind around the fact that supermodel Adrien Agreste was blushing.

“I’m…well, I’m a fan of yours.”

Ladybug blinked and blinked and blinked, like her heart took control of her eyelids and tried to translate its silent screaming into Morse code.

“Oh,” she croaked. “That’s…cool.”

She should say something more, right? The man she learned to love during daytime fittings and late night balcony talks away from an industry party’s noise just admitted he was her fan.

“I like you too,” she said, before panicking. “I-I MEAN, I LIKE YOUR WORK! I’M!! ALSO A FAN!!!”

“O-oh,” he echoed, and any embarrassment Ladybug felt was stalled by the fascinating sight of a red flush spreading across Adrien’s skin. “If I’m being honest…that makes me really happy to hear.”

Pulse pounding in her ears, Ladybug felt like she was in a trance when she asked, “Do you want to work out together today?”

The joy that lit Adrien’s eyes when he said yes threatened to melt what was left of Ladybug’s brain.

Maybe you can help me. My mom wants to pick up crochet after i don’t know how many years. When my brother and i were little she made us curtains in filet crochet but thats the only thing she did with crochet. I made these christmas trees last year and she wants to make them for decorating the hallway of the senior appartment complex mom and dad live in now.

I tried to teach her earlier this week and yesterday the whole afternoon but she isn’t getting it. Okay making a triangle is tricky after that didn’t work i tried to learn her a granny square i thought it would make her understand how the corners are made and were she should use what amount of stitches. I had here watching youtube tutorials and paused them so she could imitate them but it doesn’t work for her. I made the trees simpler, wrote down exactly what she needed to do, made a graph, got her the symbol translator etc. Is there something more i could try to teach her this? She is determined to learn it but i am running out of ideas. Before i take some yarn and start decorating the hallway myself i would like to try again.

Update:  Mom has her trees ready. She also wanted snowflakes, but that was a step to much. I made 3 different size and sorts of snowflakes and they love them. 

Language is the most humane and the least personal work of art, revealing her secrets not to those who try to tame her but only to those who submit to her. Language does not record the history of individuals; she records the history of communities. And the human psyche can be expressed only through  her tradition in this collective form.

From Captain Britain and the Mighty Defenders #1 and Secret Wars: Armor Wars #3

This event has apparently created quite a few new characters, and two of them are Teenagers in Power Armor. 

We have Antonia Yinsin of Yinsin City, as “Kid Rescue”, daughter of the man who saved Tony Stark and inspired him to become Iron Man in 616. 

And in Technopolis we have the new character Kiri Oshiro, daughter of Rumiko Fujikawa and Tony Stark’s “Niece”.  It’s unfortunate that her company name is clearly the result of only going with the first result on google translate.  It’s supposed to be “Mobile Fortress” in translation, they have it as “Mobairu Yosai” – Hagane Hadou or some iteration thereof would have worked better, as Hagane is “Castle of Steel” which works far better than “Fortress” for what she’s building: Her company is named that because she’s building a giant mecha (if it’s Red Ronin, I will smile).

Also, we have Lilah Rhodes in armor, which is nice to see (as she clearly should get one, even if the reason for her having one here is less than stellar). 

Time to add more AU Teen Heroes to my ever-growing list, I suppose. 

Decided to run a quote from @radiantseraphina‘s fanfic A Swirling of Snowflakes through google translate, and this is how it came out. If she wants me to take this down because I used part of her work I’d be more than willing. It’s a really cute fluffy Kirby fic that you should definitely check out about various pairings during the holiday season (many of which take place in her Dreamland University AU, which you should also really check out).

Help! I know u haven't translated the work in months but like where do I find more of that Kakashi's Wish doujin/comic? Did the artist abandon that work? D:

@allhatakekakashi is her Tumblr. I haven’t talked to her for a while but I believe she is very busy right now with grad school. Last I heard on that specific comic, she does want to continue it, but I’ve translated all the pages that have been published.

Reine des Fleurs - slight summary + CGs (ch2, interlude, Leon’s route)

Ah ha ha ha I am so sorry for the delay. Except not really. I wanted to hold off on making these posts until I beat the game…and then it took me 1.5 months longer to beat the game than I thought it would since…well. Let’s just say that pretty art, music, and character design aren’t enough to save a game from the perils of writing.

Anyhow! Here’s all the CGs from Leon’s route and the common route parts of Ch2 + the interlude. There’s…not going to be as much summary from me as normal because it’s been a while, cough…though this got longer than I planned, so oops.

As it is, though, I think that Leon’s is the best route writing-wise of all five. Before I got the game I seriously thought that Leon would be this…mix of yandere + oresama, but nope. He was actually a really sweet and loyal puppydog of sorts. As for his incredible attachment to Violette…well, there’s a story behind that.
