since i made it i might as well post it

Let’s call it Secret Santa

–you know, without the secret part. You’re all absolutely amazing for following me and liking and reblogging my stuff. And because I feel like I don’t show you my appreciation often enough (and also because I forgot to sign up to any of the Winter Holiday Exchanges) I figured I might as well give this a try.

So I’m essentially handing out three free stories. Two around 1k and one which is at least 3k.

Here is how it works:

  • Since this is meant for my followers you have to follow me
  • You have to reblog this post once (multiple reblogs don’t give you better chances)
  • You have to put something positive into the comments/tag/reblog. To be clear it can be anything and it really doesn’t have to relate to this blog at all. Maybe something that happened that made you smile. An encouraging thought. A quote you like. Even just “happy” or “smile” if you can’t think of anything. (So I want some positivity in my life, sue me)
  • On the 1st of December 6pm CET I’m going to randomly (with the help of a tool) pick the three winners whom I’ll contact immediately
  • The winners will then be able to pick a prompt (however open or detailed you want) for their stories. There are no rules here, you can have whatever story you want–as long as I’m comfortable writing it, but that’s really it.
  • The winners will receive their stories on 24th of December as an early Christmas present. They’ll be posted here on this blog and on my AO3, so you all get to enjoy them, even if you don’t win :)

…and that’s it. If anyone wants a little something this December, whether you celebrate Christmas or not, please do join in!

I shouldn’t have made some parts of this so complicated, but it was an experience.

[Belated] Congratulations to the Jacksepticeye community for 17 Million subscribers + 5 years on YouTube. Here’s to many more years of fun.

Why I Think Momo is Kickass and You should too

So with the emergence of the anime becoming more and more popular, of course the fan base is growing and growing, I would even say to heights like seen in Fairy Tail, Naruto, etc.

 However, with the series getting more popular, you are stuck with more….negative opinions about the characters that in my mind are sometimes just not necessary.

 Now, this blog is normally Ochako and Kacchako and I intend to mostly keep it that way but lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of negative posts towards Momo and frankly, I’m heavily displeased by this, especially since she’s one of the most well portrayed girls in the series and it’s really heartbreaking on my end to see posts that essentially dismiss her for more shallow reasons that don’t need to be here.

 I mean to start this off, are we going to simply forget that she came into UA on a recommendation and was a student that made even All Might shook when asked why Iida was the winner of the exercise

or how, even though the class didn’t know her, she was still voted to be Assistant Class President? 

 or how she was able to act calm and rational during the USJ villain fight?

 or how she still managed to get the top grade in the midterm exams and didn’t get it to her head but actually acted BENEVOTELY and helped her classmates who asked her for help?

or how it was HER plan that got Todoroki and her to win the exam that they were fighting in?

 But ya know, because of her BODY, we’re going to ignore that right? We’re going to ignore how amazing and how smart she is simply because of her body.  

I won’t lie guys, I’ve heard people complaining about her quirk and even saying how bad her quirk is designed when it’s like??? It actually makes a lot of sense why it’s like that since she does create large objects like shields, spears, A FREAKING CANON, like it makes sense for her to need to use fat call throughout her body to be able to achieve that look.

Which brings me to talk about her costume. Oh boy, this is the one that when I first entered the fandom, no one really said anything but now that the series is more popular, everyone has become experts on body proportions and quirk designs and apparently fashion design since her costume isn’t good enough for her.

I mean look at the costume design that Horikoshi put in for her and how he planned that all out for her

At some point, yes I understand, Horikoshi is a pervert, sometimes his intentions aren’t the best, I get that. But consider this, even though he had the ability to make Ochako’s and Tsuyu’s costumes completely perverted, he chose against that. He had the perfect opportunity to indulge in that yet he didn’t. What I love about Horikoshi is that he thinks about the practicality of the quirks and designs the costumes based on that as well taking into consideration the character’s personality and what they would want.

 So guys, at some point, reality check moment: Momo is comfortable with her body enough to wear a costume that she deemed necessary for the usage of her quirk. And she chose that design for that outfit and has not said a word about this entire series. She even had an opportunity to create it to be more closed and she chose not to. MOMO CHOSE HER OUTFIT AND VIEWS IT GOOD ENOUGH FOR HER HERO WORK.

 In this moment too, I would like to share what even Midnight said during Episode 34 at the very beginning.

So another reality check: The only people who are saying it’s sexual are the people who are sexualizing her to begin with. Instead of viewing it as more of a practical thing that is designed for her quirk (which involves utilizing her fat cells and creating stuff through her skin), people begin to view as sexual and are condemning her for having a revealing costume. Which, to me personally, I find ironic since tumblr is filled with campaigns of free the nipple and the stopping of sexualization of breasts and female anatomy, yet look what’s happening here. People are taking her costume and saying she’s being sexualized for choosing a design that would give her optimal openness to use her quirk.

 I mean look at how she used it in the Aizawa fight

 Having that navel cavity helped her out immensely during this fight and she was able to create the alloy material in a much faster way with having access to areas where most of her fat is stored.

Which, I also heard people commenting on how Momo’s body doesn’t make sense and how skinny she is in comparison to her boobs (which I’ve seen that in real life, it’s not uncommon), but if you see in this spread

She actually isn’t the skinniest person in the world. Keep in mind that while she does use her fat cells to make stuff, she does also consume A LOT OF FOOD TOO to keep up with the level of activity too so she does get chubby sometimes so it’s a wrong assumption to think she has this INCRDIBLY PERFECT BODY WITH NO FAT when she does! Which only makes it only more natural and real!

Honestly, her entire arc in the beginning of the manga (or at least up into this exam point) has been so powerful, so realistic, and so amazingly well done.

I mean to consider, very similarly to Bakugou, while we haven’t gotten much of her backstory, given how she behaved in Season 1, we can have a somewhat assumption that she came from a great home and was well praised for her quirk. Obviously, her quirk isn’t one with a talent, she had to work immensely for it, but she must have been placed into situations where she was elevated and praised for how powerful her quirk is (like she was put in situations where she was able to be able to use her quirk to the fullest and not have much backfired).

Even Aizawa says this during their fight

Which does imply this isn’t a constant state she’s always been in, it’s one that has been gained since the sports festival (hence why the arguments that she should be shouldn’t be self confident are wrong). 

Yet, with coming to UA and being in a hero course, after participating in the festival, well she starts to crumble and kind of doubt her abilities against the others

 Like it starts off with her not getting a high ranking on the race

 Then she mentioned the issue with the cavalry battle later on but definitely the heavy hitter for Momo was her fight with Tokoyami where she was left in shambles since she wasn’t able to make much on an impact on the fight itself (which this was amplified more in the anime than the manga itself).

Thus really bringing down her confidence. And now a lot of people screamed about how misogynist her hero training was and how demeaning it was which leads to 2 issues that some people forget about.

 1.     That there are multiple sides to being a hero. It’s not always the cookie cutter “fight villains, rescue people, rinse and repeat”. Even famous people in our society, even though their job is to act/sing/etc, they still go out and do publicity work and that’s what they do. It’s a part of being well known and using your abilities outside of the field you are in.

2.     This was all part of Momo developing. This was just another way to bring Momo down a couple more notches. It’s a bit cruel and hard but this was a way for Horikoshi to get her  out of her mindset and be exposed to something where her confidence could be lowered. Guaranteed if she was put into an actual hero training internship, she wouldn’t have been lowered as much as she did.

 Which could lead the argument that it wasn’t necessary to have any of that stuff happen to her but consider, would she have gotten in this state if she didn’t have those things happen and accumulate?

And would she have gotten her confidence back from Todoroki/Aizawa and execute an amazing plan without that encouragement from those moments?

Probably not.

 Ok this post is beginning to get way to long so I’m going to stop here before I go on and on and on about Momo. As much as Ochako is my best girl and I will forever sacrifice myself to her, even I have to admit Momo is utterly amazing and I only talked about what happened in the first 65 chapters. I didn’t even brush on how amazing she was during the invasion of the villains or how she managed to be a huge help in the rescue of Bakugou or even how kickass she was during the license exam (which she helped my princess Ochako and that pleased me so much). Momo is just more than the simple sexual object people are complaining her to be as, she’s an incredibly smart and amazing woman and Horikoshi put so much thought into her, more than what any of us could ever imagine. I am truly excited to see more of what she can do in the future and I hope she gains more fans since she truly deserves it.

 TLDR; MOMO IS AMAZING, SEND HER LOVE YALL

Laucy VS Camren

Well, this is not a theory. I got up to these pics and they hit me like a truck. I’m not a morning person, but this even overpowered what an alarm could do.

I admit I wasn’t on the best state to see these pics because I just got my heart broken. So seeing the 1st pic posted on wildflyme’s instagram was breaking my heart even more because I’m a camren shipper af.

These pics are so sensual, yes. They both look really happy. With the fragile state of me right now, even the 1st pic had me so down and sad because my ship has lost in the middle of nowhere LOL. It felt as if my heart was ripped to two.

But again, this is media. One thing that is consistent about me wherever I am on social media (Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr) is that I don’t trust media anymore. MTV is one of them. I don’t even believe in Billboard, then how can I even trust MTV? This is the link

http://www.mtv.com/news/2995972/lauren-jauregui-lucy-vives-photoshoot/?xrs=_s.tw_news


After all, we all know, these are from a photoshoot in November 2016.

There are many possibilities out there, but I’m just gonna narrow them down to 2 possibilities here. If I list all the possibilities one by one, it might end up like a novel. It’s better to just focus on two.

1. Laucy did date just like what was mentioned in the article and Camren was NOT real or even if Camren might be dating at some point

2. Laucy did date just like what was mentioned in the article, but Camren IS real as well

You know, when you read these 2 possibilities, you will feel like, “No, I think..” or “Wait.. but..” Save it. Let’s just focus on these 2, because I know it’s a never ending debate if we talk about all possibilities.

But now, let’s see the big picture and let’s stop with “No, Camren is real” and “No, Laucy is real” debate. Let’s look at another point of view here. What if both ships are real?

For me, the 2nd possibility is what I believe. You know I don’t trust media anymore just like what I said earlier. But, what was mentioned in MTV is STILL one of the many possibilities, right? We can’t just exclude it just because we are denying that Laucy is real.

Laucy might be real at some point (or not). They mentioned they dated on and off for a few years. They have known each other since high school. The context of “a few years” might be around 2 - 3 years. That’s my definition. 4 years for a relationship for me is a long time. I can’t define it as only “a few” years. But, what if this happened before Camila and Lauren met each other? Or what if this happened before Camila and Lauren realized they fell in love with each other? For God’s sake, this might happened during the X Factor as well, and Laucy & Camren might be a complicated love triangle (okay, I’m delusional but this is one of the million possibilities out there, right?)

It was mentioned in MTV article that they did this photoshoot as part of their coming out. It was mentioned “They did really like each other” but there was no timeline mentioned about when they had the relationship. It was only mentioned “They dated for a few years”.

Those photoshoot pics might break my heart, but I’m not losing my Camren heart. No.. Why? Because of these.

I’m sorry but they look really happy here as well? Or are you still gonna call me delusional?

Well, these gifs seem too friendly though. But these iconic moments will always be in our minds.

Your other expressions can lie, but your eyes will never lie. These gifs are heart-warming to be honest.

Then, these indirects.

Lol, I’m sorry for being extra on this. But have you realized that the article confirmed yet killing Laucy at the same time?

I’m NOT losing hope on what I call as true love. I might be so lowkey about it on my instagram and twitter accounts cause I use those platform for another purpose. I never posts about Camren there. But here, in Tumblr, I’m quite vocal about it. I might not be as intense as the other Camren accounts, and I might be lowkey about it, but since the very beginning my fan account was made, I AM a Camren shipper.

You have your right to believe what you wanna believe, but I believe in true love and that revolves around Camren, because the way Lauren looks at Camila is love.

P.S. Guys, I don’t know why but on my phone the pictures shown are only a few. Even the indirect pics are only one which is shown. Is it like that in your phone as well? Because I posted this using my laptop. If you see it from the laptop or computer, you’ll see all the trolls lol

Sorry that I haven’t been so active since my ask blog opened. I thought I might as well post this little thing for you guys that I forgot I did. Would you guys believe that these originally were my designs for Bendy and Alice? I decided to change them for my fanart as an exercise to draw outside of my comfort zone and it’s really helped me improve. I personally think I made the right choice to go with the rubber-hose look.

Anyways I’ve decided to make a schedule that may or may remain for the rest of the summer (if I get that job). I have commissions and that Benlice comic that I want to finish so I can focus solely on the ask blog. Which has been a blast so far you guys are awesome! I’m planning out how the comic will wrap up - with two more parts. As for my askblog I’ll say more on the actual blog.

40 Character Development Questions

Since I led off with a Character Development Checklist, I thought it might be nice to round it out with a Question Sheet, as well.

Also, can someone explain to me how the fuck I misspelled “Development” on that post title and didn’t notice? Don’t pull from drafts and edit at 4:00 am, kids.

  10. What is their worst tic/habit?
  11. Who is the person they love the most?
  12. Who is the person who they hate the most?

  15. How easy are they to get along with?

Other:

  1. How is this character different than all the other characters? 
  2. What would happen if your character had more information about the plot you’ve created?
  3. What would happen if your character had less information about the plot you’ve created?

woah hey! sorry for the lack of updates. i was traveling for the past month and i’m back home doing freelance 3D work now. i’m finally starting to get better at time management so i’m hoping i’ll be able to start drawing more again. 

anyway! here are some old drawings from around a year ago. I was waiting until i had a bunch of them stored up so I could post them as a set since they’re a bit rough. basically, there are a lot more bugs from the universe that motthieu is from, haha. you may recognize them from the christmas card i made last year :p I was going to try to do rendered versions of them like I did with motthieu, but I never got around to it… so I figured I might as well post these as they are. you can click through the captions for their names too!

Costume inspired canvases

I’ve made all of these years ago, but since I now actually post on my tumblr and still kind of really like my artsy thingies, I figured what the heck, might as well put them here ^_^

I couldn’t draw a proper picture to save my life, but I like to play with modeling paste and acrylic paint. And blingy things. Mainly I like to play with blingy things. So using Yuzu costumes for inspiration is kind of a no-brainer.

The canvases are 30x40cm. The triangle one is really small though, with a side length of only 20cm. I’ve always wanted to do a larger Seimei version, but I somehow never got around to it. Maybe I’ll finally get it done this season with the new costume :)

Hey Witchblr, I made an All Star potion

So…

Yes.

I wrote All Star into a potion thing. I’m so sorry.

I thought since the post I made about it is my entire livelihood I’d share with you the glory that is this lovely potion recipe. It’s so good, you might even say… it’s a smash for your mouth.

THAT DIDN’T EVEN MAKE SENSE OH MY GOD I FEEL DIRTY

Anyways, this is a spell to achieve something even when people doubt you. Maybe a sport that people think you can’t play well, maybe you wanna prove to your parents that you can make it into art school and you aren’t a waste of space, whatever floats your boat.

Enjoy this terrifying monstrosity, you witchy fuckers.

“You weren’t pushed out to be saved.”

I have a theory I worked on last night sitting in my drafts, but before I can even focus on continuing it, I have to say something.

Thank you, @markiplier.

I’m assuming most of you know what I’m talking about (since 100 of you have followed me since then) but for those of you who don’t, well… brace yourselves.

Yesterday during the stream, I made a continuing post about everything Mark confirmed about WKM. I was taking meticulous notes on each chapter (in my notebook, I’ve got a little over four pages of very sloppy bullet points that I used to craft that post). I cleaned it up after the final chapter and called it “complete”.

But I was wrong about one thing. My final point, the one about how we were pushed out. In the moment I might’ve been so excited that I misinterpreted or misheard something Mark said about it.

He was gracious enough to correct me, and he did so in heart-breaking detail.

… I can’t even begin to describe what I’ve felt since this moment.

Not only was this completely unexpected (honestly, I was afraid that I’d gotten more wrong) but the fact that he confirmed that what I’d written was pretty much all spot on and had it posted for all to see is definitely part of it.

But most of this feeling comes from his own response, rather than the fact that the post was even mine to begin with.

He didn’t just shed light on the ending. He shed darkness.

Since that post now has over 10,000 notes, I’ll spare you any summary or recap of all the details it contains. If anyone really wants to see my hand-written notes, I’d be happy to post pics of those, too.

But for now, I just have a few things to say to @markiplier, even though I’m 99% certain he won’t see it.

Mark, thank you for this crazy mystery. You and the whole team who worked on the project have so much story-crafting talent. The broken pieces of what Darkiplier had become were fitting for an ending that was tragically whole.

I can’t wait to see what else you have in store for us. If this is any basis, I have no doubt in my mind that the best is yet to come. 🖤

@izuqu made a funny text post about Izuku stealing sir’s All Might tapestry… And so I drew the thing…. a little differently…
There was supposed to be one last page with Mirio and bubble girl… But since I have this incurable disease called laziness, I decided to not add it to this…
