so hopefully this format is better~

So Tumblr doesn’t allow picture formatting to ask answers, whoops.

An anon asked me how2draw hair (’specifically wavy or curly’), and here’s my process.  You really have to draw/paint hair a lot to get an idea of how it should look in my opinion, but hopefully you can glean something from this^ Check the captions for extra tips :)

Revenant Dossier: Seth/Joker (REUPLOADED)

SETH: An average, everyday loser who works in a Gas station who’s 100% OK with having a Pathetic, yet quiet life. However, After being targeted and rescued from a Supernatural Serial Killer known as “The Nidhogg”, Its revealed that Seth has the potential to wield strange powers and to summon a Demon that represents his other self, known to those who have the same abilities, as a Revenant. After begrudgingly awakening his power, Seth is pretty much forced into helping solve the mystery of “The Nidhogg’s” Identity, so that he can be brought to justice, so he can resume is normal, quiet life. (Well, as quiet as it can possibly get)

JOKER: Seth’s personal Revenant, a manifestation of his true self, who lives in his shadow. While Seth is Quiet, Modest, and Collected, Joker is anything but, as he’s Cocky, Loud, and just an overall annoyance when things dont go his way. His main ability is to take in any damage that comes at him and hit twice as hard, The fire coming off his fur represents how much power he can release. Also unlike Seth, Joker is more prone to violence, even over trivial things. 

Ok, So posted some of my first OCs about a month ago, and I plan on showing more, but I feel like I didn’t do a good job of introducing them properly, So Im gonna try again but with shorter, more basic info about em without typing an entire book. Expect more soon, with 75% less text! -Boo

Check yes or no: part two. A do over because of formatting

Check yes or no: part two IN ITS ENTIRETY, sorry for this who couldn’t see it all before.

Hello all, to those who still care and/or remember this little story of mine. For those of you who do not have memories akin to an elephant’s, you can fine part one HERE. I warn you now this chapter is a bit of a filler chapter, and probably could be better. However, I do have Part three (psst, this is no longer a three part story!) itching to get out and posted. So, hopefully it will be written by tomorrow as i’m off with nothing to do.

To the anons who long ago sent me messages to be about this story, don’t worry I have never forgotten, the answers are coming.

to @takemeawaytocamelot If I know my time zones like I think I do, it should still be Memorial Day for you, and well, you know the old saying: Christmas Day/Memorial Day, potato/mango (haha). I am so sorry I inadvertently lied to you about this story, but I never forgot about it. I hope you like it.


Part two:

God, she had missed him. She had tried to tell herself it wouldn’t be that bad, they would call and write, or they would see each other on holidays. But about thirty seconds after walking away from him, she burst in tears. Years, they had been apart for years. A significant percentage of her life. But it didn’t matter anymore; he was finally coming home.

Waiting in the main area of the train station, Claire couldn’t stand still. She continually ran a hand through her hair as she checked the arrivals board, not becoming even remotely calm until she saw him. Taking a deep breath of relief, she watched as he walked off the escalator. He stood tall compared to the hunched weary looking travelers around him.  She noticed he still had the old baseball hat she had given before he left. It was currently blocking her from his line of sight.  She couldn’t contain herself anymore, her hand shot into the air and she yelled his name, “Frank, over here!”


    Looking up to find her, he smiled and everything else she had been feeling seemed to fade away.  The drive home was anything but quiet.  They spoke of everything and nothing, trying their best to update each other on the last several years. Claire told him of her adventures globetrotting with Lamb and her excitement to be finishing out schooling before university in a real school, lockers and All!  Frank in turn told her of finishing his university studies and looking forward, much like her, to working with Lamb again in a real school, students and All!


    They were so caught up in conversation, that neither noticed the passing countryside that they had previously been so excited to explore. Neither had spent much time in France before, but were pleased when Lamb had been offered a permanent professor position, with Frank as his assistant. While still quite active, the years were beginning to catch up with him, so it would be good for him to have a more stable life.


    Pulling the car in front of the house, Claire gathered their things and made her way up the stairs but before opening the door she was stopped. Frank held her hand, an odd look on his face, “Claire, um, before we go in. I should probably…”


    He was cut off when Lamb pulled open the door and welcomed him back from his trip. He ushered him in through the house, conversation on the stairs momentarily forgotten, to what could assumed to be the office.

“That girl, how could you even, how do you deal with…ugh, she’s just terrible Jamie”


    “Hello to you too, Janet.” Jamie said, trying as hard as he might not to laugh, as he opened the door for her.


“What did she do now to have displeased you so?”


    “That girl canna have more that three functioning brain cells, it’s not possible. How she manages not to get lost on her way from her closet to the bed each day I’ll never know.”


    He couldn’t stop himself this time and burst out laughing at the image. Jenny just continued on, pausing only long enough to glare at him. “Oh sure, laugh about it. YOU didn’t have to sit in a car all day with her,and you didn’t have to listen to her as she tittered back and forth between dresses! I mean really, how can you stand it? What do you two possibly do together? It canna be her skills as a conversationalist!”


    Stopping then, she caught her breath and finally noticed his smirk, which turned into a full blown smile as he doubled over laughing.


    Huffing at him, she began to rummage through her bags. “Never mind! I don’t want to know!”


    “I’m sorry you had such a bad time with Annalise, but she’s really not that bad.  Maybe while you’re here you’ll get to know her a bit better. But, it is so good to see you, ye’ve been missed. I know Ian hasn’t been able to stop talking about your visit.”


    Jenny snorted looking at him in disbelief, “Not that bad, huh?” The smile she saw made her own turn up into the real smile he hadn’t seen in so long. He had been away from home for a few years now with little more than short school break visits to tide him over and it was never enough. Jamie couldn’t wait for this last year to be done with so he could make his way back.


When he had been accepted here, he hadn’t thought it would be as bad as it was, he had been so excited and so wrong.  Tonight, he thought he’d be able to get a bit of home back. Tonight was the welcome back ball and with Ian and Jenny with him, they would bring a little of the highlands to France.

Claire was putting on the final touches to her outfit for the night. She had spent the majority of the day on the phone with Gilli making sure that what she had put together would work as well as she was told it would. Pouring over her jewelry box for the millionth time, she contemplated once more just calling it all off, pulling on jeans and going to a movie. But, she had purchased her dress and shoes with Gillis a month or so before on her last visit to Scotland with Lamb. It seemed an awful waste of what she was assured many times wasn’t too much and would get the attention of every man there. The deep red, she had to admit, did contrast nicely on her pale skin and dark hair, but she was still nervous.


    Making a splash was all well and good, but doing so at a new school was something entirely different. She did her best not to think too much on those thoughts and the ever persistent voice in her mind saying, “Just be careful.” The sound of Frank coming in downstairs pulled her out of her thoughts. She looked into her jewelry again, selected ruby and gold earrings her mother had left for her, slipped her shoes on, and walked out of her room, deciding it was now or never.
   

“Hello Frank, you look very handsome. I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in a tuxedo.”


    She always thought that saying that someone was breathtaking was always a bit of an exaggeration, but Frank seemed to have lost his looking up at her, coming down off the stairs. She had never felt more powerful and sure than she did in that moment.

Coming up to him, he had finally gathered himself enough to tell her how beautiful she was. From his words and Lamb’s photo happy tendencies, she blushed a very close second to color she wore.  She finally relaxed a bit as they drove to the venue.  They stayed quiet through most of the ride, but she knew that she was ready. These types of events, while uncommon in her life, were not completely foreign to her.  She had, in the past, accompanied her uncle to various faculty events and research galas. She knew that, if nothing else, tonight she could mingle and get to know her new classmates in a more relaxed setting.

Walking up the main staircase, Claire could hear the chatter of people and the beat of the music.  She paused a moment before walking in, closed her eyes, and took a deep breath.

“Are you sure you’re alright? We don’t have to go in you know. We can go somewhere, anywhere else; if you’d like.”
   

She looked between him and the doors for a moment, squared her shoulders and turning the knob saying “No. It takes a lot to surprise me anymore, Frank. I don’t expect anything in there to change that. Let’s go.”

Spinning around the floor, Jamie tried his best to take in his surroundings. He hadn’t really gotten the chance to talk to anyone, or even get something to drink. Upon entering, Annalise had drug him on to the floor and only briefly seen fit to let him rest. He didn’t mind too much really. Though, Jenny’s rant from earlier came back to him, as Annalise had also been talking for the better part of an hour, about what, he had no idea.  But, overall he was having a very nice time.


Jenny was beaming and Ian’s smile hadn’t slipped once, he never was able to take his eyes off of her. Annalise looked lovely too, she wore a fitted peach colored gown and since picking her up that evening, he, too, found himself staring at her when she looked away. Suddenly, something felt different, and he couldn’t place it. He tried to get her attention, though there wasn’t much hope of that while she kept talking. He brushed it off, determined not let his thoughts go past the two of them dancing.


    Suddenly, the song came to an end, switching to something much louder and more upbeat,  he was ushered off the floor towards the refreshment. She had pulled him down a bit so he could hear her over the music.

“I am going to run to the ladies, would you mind grabbing me a drink?”


    He nodded and pushed his way gently through those standing around talking. Placing his request, he finally got his chance to look around, and to see who had shown up with who. While not much of a gossip, he found it was better to at least know the goings on as it made his life altogether easier.

He hadn’t paid much mind to those immediately around him, only registering bodies moving in and out of the area. As his drinks were handed to him though, he saw a flash of red come up to the drinks area and directly into his arm.

“Oh! I’m so sorry… erm, excusez-moi.”


    It was quick, but he had caught it. English. Good French, from what he could hear, but definitely English. He turned to pick up a few napkins and decided to stick to English as well in response.

He chuckled cleaning off his kilt, “Nae, it’s no bother. Really, worse has be spilt on me before.”  He look over his shoulder then and his heart stopped.

“Claire…”

OOOOOoooooooooooooh, I’ve done it! Finally finished!

I’ve made some color changes that I’m aware not everybody will like, but imo they work better as a set this way, and I’m a little pedantic about sets. I’m sorry.


Hopefully better news: the much requested prints are a-coming! If anyone still wants ‘em now, ahaha … Anyway, I’ve set up a redbubble and will shortly add the Gems! But because I am a European bean and drew them in DIN-format, I’ve got to resize them a bit first, or at least turn the borders pure white so there’s no ugly edges… or make them transparent? That’s so much work though, ugh.

I intend to make regular prints and maaaybe stickers available, but in case anyone wants anything fancier, let me know!

Physics Notes, Lecture 7, MCAT Prep (7/12/2015)

I was particularly confused during this lecture, as I didn’t really pay attention in Physics I in college, and the online lecture format that I took notes from was a little different from the in-person lecture format that I had gotten used to for physics. My test is this upcoming weekend though, so beggars can’t be choosers! Hopefully reviewing the material will help, and doing more practice passages will let me better apply it. 

sing for me, sing for us

Read on Ao3

Summary:  It’s not that Keiji had a good singing voice. In fact if Keiji had any say in the matter (which, Bokuto assures him, he doesn’t) he would say he has an average voice. Mediocre at best, honed only by faint humming on train rides and gentle singing in the shower.

It’s not that Keiji had a good singing voice. In fact if Keiji had any say in the matter (which, Bokuto assures him, he doesn’t) he would say he has an average voice. Mediocre at best, honed only by faint humming on train rides and gentle singing in the shower.

It’s not even something he particularly enjoys. None of the exhilaration of volleyball nor the tiny thrills of satisfaction he gets from solving a particularly nasty puzzle or even the relaxation he gets from gardening. It’s just… something to pass the time.

The fact that his boyfriend treats it like a big deal only makes it even more irritating.

Character Development Questions #1

Here’s the first round of character questions! Hopefully these are helpful. I think I’ll stick with this format for the time being– ten somewhat “serious” question plus a random fun one at the end.

  1. Is your character good at working with their hands? If so, are they better at practical and crafting-type pursuits (carpentry, knitting/sewing, smithing, car repairs, etc.) or fine arts like drawing and painting?
  2. Has your character ever been to a beach? If so, did they enjoy it? Why or why not?
  3. There’s a spider, cockroach, silverfish, or some other nasty bug in your character’s house/room/apartment/etc.! How do they deal with it? Do they squish it? Capture it to release it outside? Scream and run for the hills?
  4. How would your character react to the death of a family member, close friend, or other loved one? Is this something they’ve experienced in the past or not?
  5. Does your character know how to swim? If not, have they ever been in a situation where they wished they had? 
  6. How quickly does your character generally pick up new skills or knowledge? Are they better at learning “book knowledge” or hands-on skills?
  7. What are your character’s sleeping habits? Can they fall asleep anywhere, or do they need perfect silence and darkness? Do they tend to stay up late or get to bed early? Would they be comfortable sharing a bed with someone they don’t know very well?
  8. Does your character have any seemingly irrational fears or phobias?  If so, was it caused by a specific incident in their past?
  9. Describe your character’s dream house.  Where would it be located? What unique things would be inside it?
  10. If your character was greatly outnumbered in a fight, would they stand their ground or run away? Does their mindset in this matter ever get them in trouble?
  11. Just for Fun: Describe what the first five pictures in your character’s Instagram would be.
8

I was told to do it like this again. The verbs “iru” and “aru” are hard to explain without context, but when I start making example sentences hopefully it becomes more clear.

Is picture format better than text format? Let me know if there’s one you prefer. Sorry about the black background but I screwed up when making the stock pictures. The romaji is purposely in a harder-to-read shade so that you see the hiragana first.
I have a masterpost of hiragana and katakana in the same format as well, and if you’re serious about learning Japanese you should learn the character systems, as romaji is not widely used.

Don’t forget you can ask me if you have any questions, follow for more Japanese and delete this text if you don’t want it when you reblog. Please do not repost.

Left Ear - Album, Right Ear - Live
Steam Powered Giraffe (arranged by Duane Joseph Olson)
Left Ear - Album, Right Ear - Live

****FIXED VERSION****

USE HEADPHONES.

I REPEAT, USE HEADPHONES FOR INSTANT MAGIC.

The Left ear is the studio version of Hatch Fever by Steam Powered Giraffe, The right ear is the live version.

The version I had up before was put in left/right format from a version that was already in stereo format. So, as a result, I was accidentally muting Rabbit and half of Hatchworth. But its all good now bruh.

All edits were made to the studio version to fit the live version, simply because I like that one better. Hopefully you won’t be able to notice.

Obviously, all credits go to Steam Powered Giraffe. Don’t get your panties in a bunch, it isn’t even the whole song.

Enjoy!

Mandarin: What's in a Name?

After that one post some anons and @neuromantis​ asked for more dirt on the various names for Mandarin, so I thought I’d try a conciseish list thing. While language ideology is my thing, having not been raised in this one I only know so much, but gotta start somewhere

Common terms:

  • 中文 zhōngwén : “china + writing.” very basic and widely understood, use anywhere
  • 國語 (国语) guóyǔ : “national language.” older texts in China might have this, but presently it’s used only in Taiwan
  • 普通話 (普通话) pǔtōnghuà : “the common language.” popularized by the CCP, use in China (not sure about HK)
  • 漢語 (汉语) hànyǔ : “the Han language.” another widely understood term, but feels a little more…academic to me? Like you wouldn’t be like “wow 你的汉语很棒” but the big dictionary is the 汉语大词典. (also duh 漢字) Careful because Korean is only one tone different, 韩语 hányǔ.

Less Common:

  • 華語 (华语) huáyǔ : I don’t think I’ve run into this much, the internet explains that’s because it’s used mostly in Singapore, the Philippines, and Malaysia. Which makes sense since 华 is another abbreviation for China (華僑 huáqiáo is the word for “overseas Chinese”) 
  • 北方話 (北方话) běifāng huà : “Northern Language.” So here’s where a lil history gets in; the theory is that since travel/trade was easier in the north those languages had more contact and a koiné developed for government, and this is the beginnings of the Mandarin we have today. However this term isn’t used much anymore, instead slightly more common is…
  • 官話 (官话) guānhuà : "officials language.“ When Jesuit missionaries bumbled over and encountered that language officials used as a common language it was this, and they called it Mandarin because mandarim is Portuguese for "counsellor or minister.” But again, old stuff or linguists might use the term, but it’s not going to come up in everyday life and is not something Mandarin speakers would use to describe themselves.  
  • Cantonese note: Just like ~standard textbook Mandarin~ is sort of the favored child of norther/Mandarin languages, Cantonese is the favored child of the Yue languages. 
  • as far as longer-but-not-too-long language family breakdowns go, the wikipedia page is acceptable. just know that there’s like whole books on things it’s a big world isn’t is exciting to know how much you don’t know. and a language is just a dialect with an army and a navy. 

In general, people will likely specify their Mandarin with geographic location if need be, especially because whatever the local non-Mandarin language is will probably have effected the vocabulary. 儿话 erhuà is what you call it when places (aka Beijing) add a lot of rrrrrrr (门儿 mér, 味儿 wèr) There’s some weird categorization stuff going on depending who you ask, like Wikipedia says Sichuanese is a type of Mandarin, which ok you can play that game if you wanna, but it has different tones, different phonology, and even some different grammar, so who is that helping y'know? So if you’re in China trying to find someone who can speak more like your textbook, ask for 普通話. You might not get it but good luck. 

If you’re in the US, well first-gen speakers could be from a variety of places, but will probably understand any of the “common” terms and hopefully be forgiving.  (I usually choose 中文 because it doesn’t enter the Taiwan/China debate but ydy) In general, you can always ask! What a good conversation topic mhm. 

How to Split up Series Part 2 (The sequel)

The sequel

This is about the “simple sequel,” which is a second story which follows the first chronologically, keeping the same general characters and setting. There are essentially two ways to split series like this up. The first is to have a totally stand-alone first novel with a mostly stand-alone sequel. The second is to have a sequel that concludes the events of the first novel, which may end in a cliffhanger.

The advantage of that first type is that it’s less risky for publishers to publish. They can publish book one and, if it sells well enough, can publish another book. If it doesn’t sell well enough, however, they don’t need to worry about being in a contract to sell book two.

The advantage of the second type is that a longer story can be told. If each book is 80k words, the first type consists of two 80k stories, while the second type essentially consists of one 160k story with two parts. That way, you can have a more complex story without worrying about having to cram everything into one book.

One of the major difficulties, especially of the first type of story, is having book two live up to book one. If the stories are separate, it’s hard to make it as good if not better than the first book, because you already had your big break, so to speak, and now you need to do it again. Also, you are constrained by an already-completed (hopefully already-published) book. That means that you can’t go back and change things in book one to make book two work better. The plots should also be related but not reliant on each other: book one needs to be able to exist without book two happening, and book two should have elements not found in book one.

Here is a basic format for the first type:

-Book one

          -Whatever happens in book one

-Book two

          -Begin telling a new story

          -Reintroduce characters/setting from book one

                    -This is often better done by integrating it into the dialogue/actions/descriptions

          -Introduce what has happened in the intervening time

          -Introduce new elements

          -Tell new story

The major thing to remember about the second type is that book two needs to complete the story of book one while still being able to have a story of its own.

Here is a basic format for the second type:

-Book one

          -Whatever happens in book one

          -Probably ends with an overall unresolved issue

          -Probably also ends with an immediate unresolved issue

-Book two

          -Conclude or partially conclude the immediate unresolved issue

          -Deal with consequences

          -Introduce new ideas for dealing with overall unresolved issue

                    -If there aren’t new ideas, why is it a separate book?

          -Introduce new consequences

          -Introduce new obstacles

          -Introduce new ways to overcome those obstacles

          -End with resolving the overall issue introduced in book one

          -Also end with resolutions for the new issues presented in this book

I don’t understand why there’s aggressive posts before the character is even cast. I think a better approach is to get excited about Molly!!!! You guys would suck as PR people. She is such a great character. I can’t wait to see her adapted in TV format so hopefully we’ll get a lot more of her! There’s so much begrudging acceptance of her coming in but there are so many interesting qualities to her character!

  • She’s suffered loss. Her first husband died young from cancer, leaving her a single mom.
  • She’s a good parent, too, that keeps her child’s needs in the forefront of her mind when making decisions.
  • She’s a small business owner! 
  • Speaks her mind pretty bluntly. She’s pretty clear when she doesn’t like people, and tells Will he’s talking like a jackass when he’s being completely obnoxious. (You could just hear the syllables extending when he was talking, too. “And what did sheeee sayyyy? And what did youuuuu saaaayyy?”)
  • She’s also willing and capable to be diplomatic and gentle with the people she loves when it counts. When Will has his little irrational outburst in the same conversation and feels instantly bad about it, she doesn’t hold it against him. She misses him and loves him and knows he’s in a bad place right now.
  • Sitting around and waiting isn’t in her nature. She makes a comment about this when Will decides to go on the case. When she goes to Oregon with Willy to wait out the danger, she ends up getting a job because she doesn’t feel comfortable putting her life on hold like that.
  • Her relationship with Will really isn’t about fixing him, despite how people will apply the “sucker for strays” line to it. She MARRIES him. She’s doesn’t want to save him. She wants to pick out wall paint and cabinet handles with him. She wants to have long talks and cook outs with him. She wants him to share her life and help raise her son, who is the most important person in her world. There’s a real depth of compassion and love to look past all of Will’s issues and trauma and see someone she wants to invite into her home, into her family and make a life with.
  • She’s very practical. She’s able to make the hard decisions even if they are incredibly unpleasant and far from ideal. She’s learned how to adapt to working with what she’s got, even if what she’s got sucks.
  • She is incredibly brave in terrifying events. Even when her worst case scenario is coming to life, she keeps herself composed enough to protect her baby at all costs.

Ahhh hey Maya- IISuperwomanII recently put up a new backdrop for her video and one of your drawings was there. I thought it'd be a good idea to let you know just in case you weren't okay with it ahhhh

oh jeez thanks for letting me know! i wasn’t asked for permission and i didn’t even know about this! plus the version in the video isn’t even one of the ones that i sell because the ones i sell at cons are formatted differently.

i left a comment and hopefully she’ll see it but if you guys could please go up vote it so it has a better chance of being seen i’d really appreciate it

[eta] i’m not 100% how to link you youtube comments but i think this is it? my youtube is maya kern

I’m nothing outside of these four walls My breath is made from hallway whispers

and my skin is made from locker paint and you’ve never wanted anything more than to get out of this town

but I’ll probably still be coming to the football games when I’m 45

and the color has drained from my hair

and the life has drained from my eyes

while you’re out in the big city

I hope you always feel alive

and every day at your fancy job leaves your hands shaking

and your suit never feels like second skin

because you’ve always been full of high hopes and a craving for the unknown

I still remember when we missed prom because I had just gotten out of the hospital

so we slow danced in my kitchen instead

You were so bummed out about missing “a night to remember” that you didn’t even notice that I was smiling so hard that I thought my teeth would break

because you’ve always wanted the brightest lights and the best life

but all I wanted was you

—  I hope you find what you’re looking for, and I’m sorry that it wasn’t me
