so i can find them more easily

Hades!Percy Hcs

I wanna try and do hcs for all my favourite percy godswap aus (Demeter!percy / Aphrodite!percy / hades!percy / Hecate!percy) so here we go. Btw, I get v specific with these aus so… sorry about that

  • they’re Japanese. I can’t explain why, that’s just how I always imagine hades!percy to be
  • they can’t stand loud noises or crowds, which is why they tend to stay away from camp halfblood
  • nonbinary + bi
  • long hair that they usually tie back so michi can more easily sit on their shoulder (more on michi later)
  • like nico they can shadow travel and raise skeletons (tho they find it easier to raise the skeleton of sea creatures than humans because of their link to the sea) and can manipulate of shadows into different shapes and forms, somehow able to made them solid as well as almost liquid like, gas-like etc
  • their armour and weapons are in fact made out of the shadows too, which means getting ready for battle only takes a second
  • they can also do things such as creating a shadows that hides their face, and creating wings
  • they use a variety of weapons likes knives and swords and spears, but their big weapon is a scythe. if that’s brought out, it means it’s serious and shit’s about to go down
  • they have one big big power tho that they hardly ever use because of draining it is - reversing death
  • meaning if someone’s dying, percy can reverse the process and save them, but even then there’s rules ie if it’s a illness like cancer it doesn’t work, and so far the biggest creature they’ve been able to do that for is a raven
  • they’re blind, and instead of a guide dog, have a guide crow who they can telepathically communicate with (a gift from hades, one that will live as long as percy does)
  • he’s called michi and is a very gentle soul. they’re great at looking out for percy, and it’s thanks to him that percy can happily walk around with his headphones on to black out the noise, cuz they knows that if there’s trouble, michi will immediately alert them 
  • sally isn’t actually their mortal parent… paul is (though she and paul do get together soon after percy’s arrival and so they do still grow up with her as their mum) and yes he’s japanese
  • paul won hades over with his poetry and stories, skills that were thankfully passed onto percy
  • the dead apparently really like their stories
  • and no tragic story! 
  • they only go to the underworld to train, an idea prompted by sally after percy accidentally made a shadow solid while half asleep and tripped over it
  • whenever people ask about michi, percy just pretends they don’t speak English
  • they’re a bit more quiet and subdued than Poseidon percy, but still love a good laugh
  • they get on well with the Hecate and Demeter lot, and is surprisingly fond of the fire wielding son of Hecate leo 
  • (am I saying that percy basically adopts him and takes him home so he can live with their parents as one big happy family? of course not)
Study tips! - 2017

Hi guys! These are the tips that I have for now, the truth is that they work quite a bit at the time of studying and I hope they do the same for you.

1.      Make summaries and/or schemas:

I’m a girl more of summaries than schemes (concept maps, or mind maps), but any of these are good to analyze, understand and remember better what one is studying at the time. I know that many people, like me, have the problem to put what they were studied in either of these two methods, for example, I’m not very good with the schemes, therefore I support more on summaries and to make them as small as possible, carefully not to forget anything about what I am summarizing; This is why I want to advise you that no matter how difficult and complicated it seem any of these methods, try it. Eventually, you will handled the way to do it and you’ll not realize when you will be all experts.

2.      Uses colors:

Yes, I won’t deny it, I’m 100% a girl of colors. I feel incomplete, weird, as if something will miss me when my notes do not have color, at least highlight my titles, I need it, it’s something that is a part of me.

Careful! Use colors doesn’t mean that our notes are freshly come out from a fairy oven and it looks like a rainbow, no. Use them, but sparingly, as fair and necessary to put your notes look cute and you can difference the titles of the rest, or the term of its meaning… and of course the most important thing, that are organized and clean so that when it comes the time for studying, you can understand everything.

More than for aesthetics, I occupy the colors in order to have a more dynamic vision in my notebook, allowing me to better understand, memorize better and above all to find what I want more easily. However, I won’t deny that I also like to have my notes beautiful and colorful, I say, who don’t like to have their notes organized and beautiful? To nobody.

3.      Organize your time:

Sometimes when we sit at our study site we spend hours on the same subject, without advancing in others that also we have to study, so to avoid these types of mishaps that make our work to study more heavy, because it leaves all for after, we must organize our time of study. Some occupy the “bullet journal" method for studies, others, the timer. I used the timer until I met a wonderful applications that help you concentrate and at the same time, takes your time. For example, we have a well known application called “Forest” which is available for both IOS and Android, with the difference that in Android you can download the free version, which in IOS is not yet available, but there are other applications that are similar to “Forest” that are free, such as “Be Focused”, an application that also helps you manage your time , where you can save time and designate them for return to them whenever you want, you also have the option to have breaks. The only difference between “Forest” and “Be Focused” is that the first you have the option of listening to sound of fund for greater concentration, while the second handles you only the time, without the option of background music. These two earlier applications are part of many more that you can find both Android and IOS (if you want, later I will let a post with a list of applications to study that I personally find the best of them).

To organize your time, you must rely on what you are studying, because it all depends on the amount of content. For example, in biology is usually much content, concepts or terms to memorize and understand, so I left a full hour to study everything and make sure that I understood. If the content is very complicated, I can add a couple of more minutes, but without passing me in the hour and a half, because you have to keep in mind that there are more to study.

4.       Explains what you studied:

That’s right, explain in your own words what you studied. This may be by voice or video recorder, the idea is that once you’ve explained everything in your own words you can hear the audio, and ensure that you’ve understood all or at least the vast majority. So you will see your failings and strengthen your weaknesses., correct your mistakes and learn from them. Personally, I recorded my voice explaining the best that I can what I’ve understood, and if I’ve doubts about having it explained well or have covered all, I send the audio to my friends or classmates, that way I can have a second opinion and make sure I have done well.

5.       Record your classes if possible:

If you need to take notes in a class, but for various reasons, are a - b or c, you can’t be able to complete them, I recommend that you carefully get your cellphone and begin to record the class quietly, and when you will be already at home can play the audio and complete your notes without missing anything.

Although, to tell the truth, I recommend over talking to your classmates and ask for

permission from the Professor, and then record the class, both in audio as an image. If the teacher still not authorized it (because it’s supposed to record the classes within an establishment is not allowed), can get a little rebellious and record, put your cellphone somewhere in the room where it isn’t seen. Sometimes be a little rebellious is not bad, it all depends on the reason why you are, right?

Carefull! This doesn’t mean that you don’t take notes in class or not pay attention because you are recording, if you don’t understand the class less you will do it through an audio or video, where you don’t have the support of your present teacher.

6.      Creates memory cards (flashcards):

Although it seems typical, they are quite effective. There is the option of to make them yourself or you can download any application that can make them, as for example Quizlet, an application that is available both IOS and Android. This will help to quickly memorize definitions of concepts, or important dates, people and their works, etc.

7.      Transfer your notes in order, rewrite:

If you are one of the people who, like me, prefer to make a draft of his notes, and then pass them in clean (rewrite them), you’ll know that this tip really works. I won’t deny that it is more work, but everything has its reward, isn’t it?

Personally I’m of people who have better visual memory, which read and write helps me to memorize better. Thus I memorize and order my notes, both at the same time. In addition, it said that rewrite is equivalent to five readings, I don’t know if that is true, but I at least feel that I memorize best rewritting, well in my time to study I remember things I’ve written and I can understand them better.

8.       Listen to music to concentrate:

The truth is that this tip is pretty ambiguous and personal, because it depends on each person. Many people can’t concentrate with noise, so they only can study in complete silence, and others simply cannot withstand be studying with so much silence. I’m of people who are in the middle.

For me is inevitable listen classical, instrumental music, rain, nature or just a relaxing study melody sounds. It helps me enough to concentrate and accompany me at the time of study. There are a variety of videos on YouTube with relaxing music, classical or instrumental music, or sounds of nature to study, as well as on Spotify playlists that are pretty good.

Personally, I listen to music when I do exercises such as mathematics or physics, and as for readings or review, normally I do without music or with one that does not have too much rhythm, as sounds of rain, wind, etc., to be able to concentrate.

9.      Search material of support:

If you feel that you still don’t understand the subject, either because it is very difficult or because you don’t understand your teacher, you can’t stay still and do nothing. You have to auto-teach you, learn and learn any other way what you are passing in classes.

For example, looking for videos that teach you what you are going through, search exercises online, Power Point presentations, PDF documents to help you supplement your notes or your knowledge. There are many channels on YouTube that can help you to study, as also pages with books, exercises, and documents about what you’re going. The idea is to find supporting material that will help you to understand what you’re learning in class, so to be able to reinforce.

10.   Stay away from your social networks:

I know that many of us it has happened that from being studying we went from one second to another to be checking our Instagram account. Best for these cases is to put the cell phone as far as possible, if needed elsewhere in your home (obviously, if you’re studying at home), and in airplane mode so that nothing interrupts your time of study. Now, to avoid entering your networks through the computer or laptop that you are using at the time of study, you can download applications that will block certain pages by a certain time, and once activated cannot be it reversed, yes or Yes you should spend that time so that the pages are unlocked. These applications exist for both Windows and Mac.

11.  Uses Post-it (sticky notes):

These help me to write down something that perhaps the teacher said in class and would not have seeing completely with the theme that we’re passing, or be any possible question test, any dimension, a concept that I don’t know.

12.  If you have any doubts, questions, ask:

As they say the teachers, or at least of my school, “There no are silly questions, only fools who don’t ask”. So, if you have doubts, ask. No matter if you make a mistake, you must solve all your doubts because that will help you better understand what you are seeing. If you are in classes and you don’t understand, ask, solve all your doubts with the professor, because once you get home to study you won’t understand almost nothing, if it is that it is absolutely nothing, by not having asked.

If you’re at home or out of classes, studying, grab your cell and ask your classmates. The idea is to clear your concern in one way or another.

Personally, I really like to be able to solve my doubts with my classmates, because in addition to answer all my questions, we can exchange notes, complementing our notes, we can learn new techniques to solve exercises, etc.

13.   Review constantly:

I know that the work of reviewing every day is quite heavy, but it works. It’s truth. At least in my experience constantly review has helped me be able to memorize better what are passing to me in classes, since the constant review helps to retain longer the lessons learned, and a day before the test it doesn’t need to study too hard, ‘cause everything I learned it was be engraved on the head, and just only a small study session will need. Therefore I recommend that when you get arrive home after school review your notes at least 15 minutes that day, and everyday, in that way you will retain in your head more time what they are seeing.

14.   Gets emails from your professors/teachers:

In my case, some of my teachers send us documents PDF or PPTs we use during their classes, to study and reinforce what we saw, as well as complement our notes. Course, I recommend that if you are still in school, you can put on agree with your classmates and create an email as a group so that way you will not have problem in contacting your teacher. This is ‘cause in some schools have problems for contact their professors outside the establishment, and there are some schools that are quite strict in that area. If you’re in university, I don’t think that will be a problem to contact you through your personal email.

Carefull! Teachers are not always so cool, or so nice, to give you their mail, some of they put many excuses since in some schools the teacher-student ethics is fairly strict with contact outside the establishment, so they are usually quite reluctant to give them, especially if the teacher is handsome, so you have to prove that you are really interested in the material support and not in him, or in harass him (even while actually are haha, the key is prove otherwise 😉).

15.  Lean on your textbooks:

Many times in our schools deliver us books of the subjects that we will see that year (either whether we should buy them or they are delivered by the same school), and either that the professor uses them little or nothing within classes, we must have in mind that the book yes serves us and helps, or at least the vast majority of them because it is a support material that contains descriptions, images and vocabulary, and to answer key in some, that helps us to know in what we were wrong (for example, the books of mathematics, following exercise can confirm your answer with the solution key), this can serve when you are studying for a test, and also the test obviously. So it is best to always bear in mind that texts that give schools if you serve, independent of whether the teachers based their class in them or not, there will always be material that will help you to complement what you taught the teacher in class.

16.  Have a fixed study site:

To study well and be able to focus without any impediment, we need a fixed and comfortable place. This place has to be clean, orderly, and as much as possible wide (extended desktop), so we can have all our scope and not deconcentrate us to go for something that you need or miss. The best thing is study in a desk in your room, or in the table of dining room of your house, but is completely forbidden study in bed, as to be overly comfortable us enters laziness and sleep, interrupting our study session, and practically ensuring a long nap.


17.  Keep a schedule of fixed study:

Personally, I’m kind of people who aren’t very organized when it comes to schedules or events. Simply plans and me not get along very well, but I don’t deny that for a time I tried it, being constant in my moment of planning what to do later (in my bullet journal) and I found it quite beneficial. Apart from planning everything and organize my time, and comply with what I should do of course, I could see the progress of my studies, but as I said the plans and I don’t we get along very well. But that doesn’t prevent that recommend you organize your time, plan what to do, and between that define a time of day that is dedicated only to study. It can be in the afternoon after school, can be in the morning before going to school, or can be at night before going to bed, no matter the time, what matters is that you should defined a time to study and you can’t move that time, this will help to discipline your brain and accustom him that in this period of the day must be aware, attentive and concentrated to absorb everything, of course without forgetting small breaks in the study session. Over time you’ll see the results, giving you features that you do better absorb the information, that in that period of time your brain will be more attentive to what he reads or exercises, so you can understand much better than before.

+ Bonus: Organize your times.
For this, the best is do the technique of bullet journal, you can also go to the planner, but personally I like the BJ more, although like I said, I didn’t last long because a I’m really bad in planning constantly, but during the time I did it worked perfect, so I recommend that even if you are just as bad planning constantly, like me, try it. Who knows? Perhaps you become experts in the bullet journal.

Regards! 😄✌💕

[TRANS] 170523 Kim Hyunjung's News Show - Phone Interview w/ Rap Monster

KRN - ENG © ktaebwi

Kim Hyunjung (KHJ): Hello Rap Monster. Congratulations!

Rap Monster (RM): Hi, nice to meet you, this is Rapmon from BTs.

KHJ: You are in Las Vegas right?

RM: We have some additional schedules so we’re heading to LA from Las Vegas noe. Please excuse me for taking the call while on the road, thank you.

KHJ: You’re really well-manner. I’m the one who should say thank you for taking the call in such situation.

RM: It’s my honor.

KHJ:To be honest, did you go there with expectation?

RM: Of course, we had a lot of expectation. We thought that we shouldn’t have any expectation but at the same time, we expected a lot too. “They called us all the way here, wouldn’t they give us the award? But anyway let’s not hope too much,” we were kind of in a dilemma.

KHJ: How did you feel like when they called out BTS’ name at a stage like that?

RM: We talked about this among ourselves already too, it didn’t feel real. We just went out to the stage like we were being possessed by something, and in front of us were people like Drake, DJ Khaled. It felt like we were dreaming.

KHJ: Felt like you were dreaming? Back then when you were a trainee, have you ever dreamt of a stage like this?

RM: We actually have never dreamt of anything this big. When we were still trainees, around 1 year before debuting, we went to see a sunbae group’s concert at Olympic Gymnastics Arena. We talked about having to stand on this kind of stage at least once before retiring. We didn’t dare to imagine of attending an award show like BBMAs and receiving an award in front of such people.

KHJ: So you were watching the concert at Olympic Gymnastics Arena and you said “Wow, we have to do a concert here at least once before we die, don’t we?”. Was it your dream?

RM: It was nearly exactly what I said. For real.

KHJ: Those trainees now walked on the dream stage of Billboard and became the first among K-pop idol groups.

RM: It’s our honor.

KHJ: What do you think is the main factor to such global popularity? What is the core point?

RM: The local media outlets always ask us this too so I thought about this a lot, since I have to answer them. And I asked around too, of course. I think K-pop is like a gift set, an assorted gift ser. The music, the choreography, music videos and what we always do, communication on SNS. These things are combined together and once you fall for something, for example, if you listen to the music, you will watch music videos, then if you find the choreography cool, you will look up for performances on Youtube and find the fun videos that we always shoot, then you will check out our SNS and find out what thoughts we have. I can say that it’s extremely easily accessible. So the process of becoming our fans is extremely easy too. And most of all, our typical type of music or lyrics tell the stories of the youth in all over the world, no matter if it’s across the globe or Korea, the youth all feel the same emotions. We think it can create a bond of sympathy more easily, letting them think “So they feel like this in Korea too.”

KNJ: Your songs are in Korean, can those feelings be delivered? Including the lyrics too?

RM: The Internet and such are developing strongly these days, so even if we just tweet something, a lot of people would immediately translate it to not just English, but also multiple languages like Romanian, Portugese.

KHJ: So they translate and make subtitles in multiple languages?

RM: That’s correct. Nearly all of our contents have subtitles, so it’s easier to know what we talk about, what we write, what our lyrics say. I think we are benefitting a lot from the media.

KHJ: An assorted gift set made up from those things. And the finalization of it, the finalization of 2017, we can think it’s BTS.

RM: Thank you for saying that.

KHJ: But Rap Monster, how can you speak so well like that?

RM: Thank you. There’s a lot of chances where I need to speak on behalf of the group, so I think I have to speak well to dignify our group. I always think in my head first.

KHJ: You pulled out English interviews perfectly too. The assorted gift set story you talked about is true in many ways. It makes me think idols are indeed incredible, you started from Olympic Gymnastics Arena and now took home a Billboard award. What will be your next goal?

RM: Our next goal is a worldwide stadium tour. Stadium tour is the kind of tour that attracts at lease 30,000, 40,000 to 50,000 audiences. I can say that our next goal is to hold a worldwide stadium tour.

KHJ: So us older generation can understand that it’s like when Michael Jackson holds a concert and have 3-40,000 audiences?

RM: Yes, we want to do that.

KHJ: Earlier you said when you went to the concert at Olympic Gymnastics Arena yiu wanted to be like that sunbae group, who was that sunbae?

RM: They are called Highlight now right? We got a chance to go to Highlight - formerly known as B2ST - sunbaenim’s concert in 2012. We sat at the back.

KHJ: At the back?

RM: They were so cool so we told each other like “Let’s become like those sunbaenim”. We still sometimes talk about that among ourselves now.

KHJ: It would be even happier because you made it after going through hardships. Having a busy schedule must be really tiring right? What do you want to do first when you come back home?

RM: I always like enjoying the park or landscapes. I sometimes come to Gyeongbokgung too, it helps filling out the feeling of emptiness. I heard the Seoullo 7017 (a pedestrial overpass) has been opened.

KHJ: Yes, Seoullo. Oh, do you follow current events too? How did you know Seoullo is opened when you go abroad that frequently?

RM: I take a lot of flights and they always have newspapers there, so I read them.

KHJ: You need to be this level to become a global idol. Rap Monster, congratulations again. I hope you can soon come back and take a walk in the park or Seoullo 7017. I’ll continue to support and look forward to your future activities and worldwide stadium tour.

RM: Thank you.

anonymous asked:

i just started using watercolors, can you tell me about your process/share some tips?

Well first of all, congrats on trying watercolors! I’m by no means an expert yet but I’ll do my best to walk you through my process using some of the WIP pictures I have from previous pieces. There’s a ton to cover and I won’t get it all so feel free to ask more specific questions if you need help. 

My first tip would be to play with whatever tools you have to figure out what feels right for you. If you don’t have any tools yet, I suggest the Sakura Koi Pocket Field Sketch Box (pictured below) since it’s really nice quality, comes with a water brush, and usually costs like $15-$25 depending on size/where you buy it. If that’s still outside of your price range, the first watercolors I ever did were with old crayola palettes and it worked out fine, it just took way more layers and time to get the color depth I wanted.

As for paper, I’m still looking for the perfect one but just make sure it’s watercolor paper (cold press means there’s a texture, hot press is smooth) or multimedia and not like, printer paper. As long as it’s relatively thick, it should be ok but might buckle when too much water is added.

Don’t worry too much about perfection when learning how to use your equipment. Make lines, blend colors, try making washes, etc. When I came back to watercolors, I mostly did a lot of meditative painting, where I doodled whatever felt right. Some of them even came out real cool looking?? 

When I sit down to do a more detailed piece or commission, I have a five-part process I pretty consistently use these days. It goes like this: 

1) Traditional (or digital) sketch/concept phase. The below pic is from a pop-art commission concept where I really liked the flow of her hair.

2) Digital lineart (cleaning up/refining concept sketches)

3) Print the lineart and lightbox it to watercolor paper using either a hard graphite pencil (very light lines) or colored lead. I still lightbox with this ancient hunk of junk but you can even use a window or your computer screen (VERY CAREFULLY) to lightbox if you don’t have one. 

Here’s what some of my pieces looks like after being transferred: 

I think it’s important to note that you should keep a piece of scrap paper under your hand while working on the watercolor paper, since the oils in your skin can lead to areas where the paint won’t bind to the paper properly. I’ve had cases where I finished a background wash only to find an absolutely perfect thumbprint in the center of it. 

4) Ink the lines. Make sure your pens are waterproof. If they’re not, I’ll talk about a way to get around that later so skip right to painting for now. 

I used micron technical pens for the above piece. If you don’t know if you have waterproof pens, make a test chart like the one below. Mine involved copics, watercolor, and super heavy scrubbing to see how easily the pen came off when wet. 

I’ve also “inked” after painting by using more concentrated lines of watercolor instead of actual ink. The below painting was too cute and pastel and I didn’t want to ruin it with black lines, so I used that technique here (along with some red pencil)

5) Paint! I’m not really consistent with this step but my main tip is: BE PATIENT! If you want flat blocks of color, wait until each wash is fully dry before moving on to one next to it. If you don’t, they’ll bleed into each other. This is also true when trying to create shadows with hard edges instead of soft blending. Not being patient enough is my #1 cause of “crap I have to start this over”.

(The weird coloration on the lines above is actually dried frisket I put over certain sections of the piece to protect them but it ended up being more of a hassle than anything else for this style of piece.)

So, what if you didn’t have waterproof pens? You can easily reverse steps 4&5 and paint first, wait for it to dry very well, and then ink (shown below). 

The finished piece looked like this: 

I hope this was helpful!

If you want to see any of my WIPs/ask me questions, you can find me on Twitter and Instagram

Also, my commission slots are open and if you like my work and want to leave me a tip, you can always buy me a coffee :)

Spirk Fanfic Rec List

Key:

– ☆ means I really liked it

– ☆☆ means I loved it

– ✇ means it’s crack and/or hilarious

– ¢ means it’s cheesy or cliché (but in a good way)


alright! I divided the rec list into three posts: AU, TOS, and AOS.

AU Spirk Fanfic Rec List

TOS Spirk Fanfic Rec List

AOS Spirk Fanfic Rec List


it might be easier to view the lists in your browser or on a computer, rather than on the app. the app tends to kinda smoosh everything together.

I included tumblrs (that I could find) of writers so that you can easily follow them✨ 

this took awhile to make, but if it helps people discover some amazing fan fiction, it’s worth it~ 

hey, don’t forget to leave likes/kudos and comments on fics that you really like!! let the writers know that their efforts are appreciated! they don’t have to publish their fan fiction. it’s a choice. leaving a nice comment about specific things you liked in someone’s fic can really make the writer’s day and encourage/inspire them to write more ;)

sns month

As I have mentioned here, I was working on a sns month that will be hosted from 1st december till 31st december. Each day of the month has their own theme and three different prompts. I even planned one big event, and two smaller ones [→ more information under ›special events‹]

Then, one little information: The last years, bahare re-blogged all the posts that were made for the week on her own blog and tagged them, so y’all could find them easily. I want to do the same, but with a difference. I created a extra sns blog for all the events, like sns weeks, sns days, secret santa sns, sns month - and there we will reblog everything. ›We‹ because I asked friends of mine to help me manage this blog. [You can see here who they are.] The blog is called @snsfestivals.

Also, many of you may already know, but there is a discord group for sns. Discord is basically just a message app, with special and great features, such as voice chats and servers (which are group chats). It’s very safe since you don’t have to give your personal information away and you can control who finds you and not. If you are interested in joining, please drop a message at @dobe-and-teme


 RULES 

  1. You can post any format you want for this month: fanfiction, fanart, videos, gifs, graphics, edits, analysis, headcanon, etc but it’s has to involve sns as a main pairing or Sasuke/Naruto as a main character! Other ships and characters are allowed, but it can not be the focus.
  2. Reposting is not allowed, unless you are the original creator or have been given the permission from the original creator. If you are not the original creator, please make sure to credit the creator and add a link to the original post.
  3. NSFW is allowed! But it must be properly tagged, flagged as sensitive, and/or hidden beneath cuts as necessary. Also please don’t forget to tag it with #nsfw.
  4. Please don’t post things ahead of time! You can certainly work on things before hand, and you can definitely post things late, but don’t post anything for prompts before the prompt day!
  5. Make sure that you tag every post with #snsmonth2017 within the first five tags and the day from which the post belongs to. [like this → #day 7]
  6. Try to stay positive and don’t spread any hate. This should be our month, don’t let some anti ruin it for you. If you see an anti-post, please try to ignore it - it’s not worth it and just ruins the sns month.

SPECIAL EVENTS 」 

→ the big event is the Secret Santa Event, which will take place on the 25th december. Every person that participates has to prepare a sns related presents for someone I assign them with - in exchange, they will get a present from another person. If you are interested in participating, here are some informations. Everyone who is not interested, can skip this part:

 If you are interested in participating, you have to write me a private message, no asks! If there is someone you absolutely don’t want to make a present for, write it please in the message! You can also make three wishes for people you want to make a present for. » Warning! It can happen that this person isn’t participating or I have to assign them with someone else. 
You will not known which person you have to prepare a present for until the 1st december. You can still of course prepare a present even before you know for who it is, since you will likely not know the person personally. But it can happen that the person is a close friend of yours, so it’s better when you start preparing the present when you know for whom it is.
 If you don’t know what you should prepare or you don’t have any ideas, just message me and I will contact the person for you, to ask if they would like anything in particular.
 When you post the present, please add a ›Secret Santa for @url
 Deadline for Registrations: 30th November

 one of the smaller events will take place on one week of december. Bahare did it last year, and I would like to continue with it. Last year she streamed all sns related episodes on rabbit, and I really love the idea. The stream will take place on 7am and 7pm (in Germany, UTC+2) and will last till 10am and 10pm, and we will watch the exact same episodes on both times. If you still have questions, come and ask me!
      → The stream will take place from 11th - 17th december.

 the other small event is the 31st of december. On the last day of the month, I would like to ask you all to spread positive vibes in the fandom.  I want the month to end with something special, something that will make everyone a little more happier. On this day, I want you guys to send lovely asks to your favorite persons! Be it a amazing sns artist, graphic maker, writer, blog or just one of your favorite persons in general. Go and write them something to make them happy. [To the people receiving this asks: It would be nice if you could tag your posts with #snsmonthvibes, so we can find them and reblog them, thank you.]

GC2B Binder Info

I got my first GC2B binder recently, but there was some information on it that I wasn’t able to find elsewhere. So where’s a master post of some information on GC2b Binders!

Options

  • Half Binders are $33, Full binders are $35
  • Half binders are more comfortable, but tank binders are more discreet if you’re in an disapproving household (other people could easily mistake them for tank tops)
  • It’s made of a very smooth feeling material. Only the chest section is made of the tight binding fabric
  • The stomach part of the tank binder can stretch a lot and does not make your stomach look flatter or anything like that 
  • Colors: White, Grey, Black, Green, Red, Blue, and skin tones
  • (when I went to order, many of the options were sold out though!)

Shipping

  • The cost of shipping in the US is around $4.00 for standard shipping (ships in 4-6 days) and $7.00 for priority shipping (ships in 1-3 days)
  • I was required to pay for priority shipping when I ordered more than 1 binder at once
  • The packaging is very discreet! it’s in a simple paper packaging and has no company names / mention of the product on the outside
  • It DOES have a slip inside the package that gives some info the binder and the company information, so be cautious of that

Your First Binder

  • Here’s my tank binder (it’s all wrinkly because I’ve balled it up)
  • The binder might be difficult to get on at first, but don’t panic! It can take a while to get used to taking it on / off, and you have to sort of break it in for it to be more comfortable
  • if you experience any chest pain / difficulty breathing, take it off! It means that you’ve either been wearing it for too long, or you have a size that’s too small for you
  • If You own a binder and aren’t out to your family, find a good place to hide it and a safe time to wear it (I keep mine in my backpack and wear it during school)

General Binding Tips

8.5.17 // 1:00pm // guide to getting back in to school

requested by @meg-is-studying (thanks for the request!)

sooooooo school is quickly approaching and (if you’re anything like me) you’re not ready or excited. unfortunately, school is a rather important part of life that is also unavoidable. here’s how to brace yourself for the onslaught of assignments, lectures, and exams. and, just maybe, get a little excited? yeah right m, that’s not happening… anyway, i’ll stop rambling and give you some real advice (under the cut, that is)!

Calculating Your Lilith Signs

Okay so I’m just finding this information out myself so I don’t really understand it all that well but apparently there are 4 types of Liliths:

Asteroid 1181 Lilith
True (Oscillating) Lilith
Black Moon (Mean) Lilith
Dark Moon (Waldemath Black Moon) Lilith

The most accurate of the Lilith signs is the Asteroid 1181 Lilith because it is an actual physical body that holds sustenance, whereas the other 3 liliths are extremely theoretical, based off of points that may or may not exist as they have not yet been confirmed in our lifetime.

However, despite this, many astrologers seem to use the true Lilith (oscillating) or mean Lilith (black Moon) when calculating an individuals natal chart. Astrology websites are also very wishy-washy on this and you might have to readjust the settings on an online calculator to properly figure out which Lilith is which.

This is more obvious to me from the fact that I literally spent two hours frustrated that Astrotheme was telling me I was a Capricorn Lilith but Astrodienst was telling me I was a Sagittarius Lilith. I now know that they’re both right and wrong at the same time.

The Dark Moon (Waldemath) Lilith is extremely controversial because it is not only a theoretical point that has not been confirmed, it also based off of some old Middle Age legend that there are two Moons circulating Earth instead of one. Basically, the story goes that the Dark Moon is the the Moon hiding behind the real moon and yada yada but we now know that is bullshit because we know the earth has only one Moon. But some will still use the Dark Moon Lilith if they feel a connection to it I suppose.

So how to calculate the Lilith?

On Astrotheme, you only have the option of finding your true Lilith and mean Lilith. Simply clicking on your birth chart and selecting “True Lilith” or “Mean Lilith” under Calculation Parameters will allow you to easily find them both. More than likely your True and Mean liliths will be different.

On Astrodienst, it’s another story. You can calculate all 4 Liliths (and more) by simply going to your “Extended Chart Selection” under the “Free Horoscopes” tab, sub-tab “Drawings & Calculations”.

Scroll down and copy and paste these into the white bar where it says “additional asteroids”:

1181, h13, h21, h58

And then click to show the chart.

On the chart, the four Liliths will appear as:

1181 Lilith
Lilith (o)
Lilith (I)
Waldemath

Which is the Asteroid, True, Mean, and Dark Liliths in order.

I personally identify with my True and Mean liliths the most (yes it is possible to use more than one lilith in identification) but I will look more into my Asteroid and Dark Moon Liliths. You may or may not identify with one or all of them but it also wise to check if any of them have an aspect to other parts of your chart, such as the north node and midheaven (as the Lilith is our hidden, dark side of personality and can be found prominent in our careers). It is also possible for some of the Liliths to be in the same sign, so don’t worry if that happens to you.

Do with that information as you will, that is all I know on anything Lilith related!

Witchtips’ Rebloggable “Frequently Asked Questions” - Part I

How do I become a Witch?

Everyone’s path in Witchcraft is different. Some grow up with elements of witchcraft in their life, others find their way to Witchcraft. For anyone who wishes to start practicing, I recommend reading books, Witchcraft site, and blogs. Knowledge is very important in all aspects of life, but especially in witchcraft. As a self-taught Witch, I know how much there is to be learned from doing a bit of research. So search, learn, and think. That is how you can become a witch. I have a post that’s full of resources for beginners HERE

What are some simple things I can do to get started?

It depends on what you want to do. Some simple divination methods for beginners are pendulum readings and Tarot readings. With a bit of research and maybe a cheat sheet for tarot you can get a great feel for your energies through these tools. You could also try charging certain objects like jewelry or coins or performing some basic spells.

How do you charge an object?

Charging is done by putting energy into an object or element. Some like to charge through meditation and physical contact with the object. You can also use visualization to charge. Some things can be charged by outside forces, like water. Moon water, for example, can be made by putting water in a clear container in direct moonlight for a period of time.

How do I find out what kind of Witch I am?

If you do not feel a certain draw to one form of witchcraft but feel the need to specialize, I highly suggest that you dabble in a few different kinds that interest you. There’s no harm in trying different forms of Witchcraft, and you may even find that a few different kinds work for you. Everyone’s Witchcraft is different (I cannot overstate this enough) so it is normal to pick and choose different aspects that you want to incorporate into your own practice.

Can I be a Witch even if none of my relatives are/were?

Absolutely! Some are born into witchy families and can tap into their power more easily, but that does not mean that they are the only ones with magick in them. All humans have powers of divination and magick but few choose to access them or grow them. By starting your path into Witchcraft you are choosing to unlock your metaphysical power.

Can I still be Christian/Jewish/Buddhist/etc and practice Witchcraft?

You can! Witchcraft, though often associated with Wicca, can be entirely secular if you choose to practice it that way. Some Witches are Wiccan, some worship Gods and Goddesses from various religions, and some practice Witchcraft in addition to their traditional faith.

Can you demonstrate how you do your Pendulum readings?

I made a video demonstration actually! You can find it HERE

Can practicing witchcraft or divination open you up to evil entities?

It depends on what kind of witchcraft or divination you practice. Like Karma or the Threefold rule, everything you put into the world comes back to you. So if you choose to put negative energy out you should expect that amount of negativity or more to come back into your life. Divination methods like Tarot and Pendulums do not open you up to negative entities. This is because when using these methods you are using your own energy and not something else’s. When using a Ouija board, however, you are using a spirit or other entity’s energy to communicate and therefore are at risk of being attacked, invaded, or tethered to that entity. (Side note: it is a common misconception that Ouija boards themselves are dangerous. The piece that is actually responsible for communication is the triangular part called the planchette. If you own a Ouija board it is imperative that you keep the Planchette and the board seperate at all times!)

What is a Familiar and how do you know you’ve found yours?

Familiars are non-human living beings, mostly animals and sometimes plants, that possess magickal characteristics and aid in your practice. A Familiar will watch intently while you perform spells and rituals and sometimes lead you to items with helpful properties. Some Witches even report being able to understand their familiars through non-verbal communication.

Are there any alternatives to burning candles and incense? I live in a place where I am unable to light fire or create smoke.

There are always alternatives for most things in Witchcraft. Oil warmers can be an alternative to incense, although it can produce scarce vapors. There are also website where you can burn virtual candles and electronic candles are always a great alternative. You can also spray certain scents instead of burning candles of the same kind. These are just a couple of alternatives but there are many more.

the little study/organization guide for lazy students

I decided to write this post for those people who don’t have that much motivation to study all day. Even though you’re not that motivated, here you’ll find a minimun of things you can do every day/week/month/trimester/semester that will help you keep organized!

So, the least you should do…

EVERY DAY

  • Do your homework!

I don’t think that’s a secret, but doing your homework helps you knowing if you understood the subject or not, and it’s also a way of revising what you did in class.

  • Clean your workspace!

Even if you don’t have a lot to organize. A clean workspace often makes you feel more at ease, and this way you can actually find your things.

  • Organize your notes!

You should organize every note you took on class when you arrive at home, so later, when you need them to revise, they’ll already be there. Usually I take notes in messily because my teachers speak so fast, so when I arrive at home I rewrite them so I can understand easily later on when I need them.

EVERY WEEK

  • Organize your binders/folders!

Throw away papers you don’t need anymore and add important ones you’ve placed somewhere else. It’ll help you keep organized!

  • Revise!

You can do this twice a week as well, if you feel you need it. Even if you’re not studying for any kind of exam, once a week you should choose a subject and do a big revision: study the most recent arguments making flashcards, summaries, quizzes or any other technique you usually use when you study.

EVERY MONTH

  • Buy new pens/pencils!

Of course, only if you need it. Usually I need more black/blue pens and pencils, but it’s all up to you.

  • Update your calendar!

Write the new important dates: exams, appointments, goals…

EVERY SEMESTER/TRIMESTER

  • New stationery!

When there’s a new semester or trimester I need to buy a few things so I don’t need to ask people to borrow everything once school starts again. Most people need new notebooks for subjects like maths and physics, which make the notebooks end faster.

  • Do a big revision!

Revise every subject so you can remember all the things your forgot while on vacation! Usually I only do this with chemistry, physics and maths but again, it’s up to you!

+ bonus tip:

  • Buy a planner!

That is, if you don’t have one. A planner helps you knowing the work you need to get done for a certain day and it’s where you’ll write important dates.

xx

I hope this post can help! Please tell me if there’s anything you find important that I didn’t write so I can add it :)

Spring Breeze (Afterdeath) ~Vampire!Geno~

AYYY SURPRISE MOTHERFUCKERS-

Alright, first of all, I’m sorry I took freakin’ forever X’D And I know what all ya’ll are thinking: “TRASHY- WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG??”

Tbh have no excuse pfft 

But seriously, thank you guys so much for putting up with my bullshit and waiting for me :’) I hope this long-ass fanfic is enough to make it up to ya’ll, and if it isn’t, I’m sorry for being a failure-

Ever since school ended, I’ve been staying up till 3 AM writing because I wanted to get this done, but it took longer than I thought it would because originally, it wasn’t even supposed to be as long as it is right now. This is by far, my longest fanfic and it probably sucks.

Anywho, enough of my rambling. I’ll most likely die after posting this here and on Wattpad, but you guys deserve to read whatever I have created :^)

Also, please excuse if you spot any mistakes. It’s hard to spot every one of them, especially with one this long. Plus, I’m so tried X’D

Have fun-

Realistic back to school tips

So, it’s this time of year again where we go back to school and as we do so, we exchange our tips & tricks with others (seriously one of my fave things ever!).

Now yes, you guessed it, I’m about to do the same.

I’ve seen quit a few of these around, but most of them seem to predict that we (as studyblrs) are organised people (I mean most are indeed, or at least we try to be) and let’s just say I’m not the most productive person in the world, I rarely study during summer or pretty much do anything school related at all during the break (not too happy about it, I hope to get a lot more organised this year!). So here’s a list of things I plan to do during the back to school season and therefore have decided to share them with the internet and you, lovely people :) 

  • get my sleeping schedule at least slightly back on track

I seriously envy all who are able to maintain a somewhat normal sleep schedule during summer, I somehow always end up finding myself going to bed at 2am and waking up at 11. now i’m not really gonna do anything too drastic, that’s kind of impossible, but here’s what i plan on doing: for 3-5 days before the first day of school, i will try to go to bed at least a bit earlier, and also wake up a bit earlier. This doesn’t mean i’ll go to bed at 11pm the first night of doing this, but instead of 2am, i’ll aim for 1am of even 12.30. In the morning i’ll try to get up at 9.30 instead of 11 and so on until 1st day of school, when i have to wake up at 7.

  •  only buying the necessities 

Oh god how i know i won’t be able to do this but i really will try to not buy every single cute notebook/pen/pencil case/planner/binder/… i see because chances are, i will not need it. i will only buy the things i know for sure i need (a binder for each class, filler paper, everything else i stil have from the previous year) (and maybe like, 3 cute sticky notes sets to have for flat lay pics) and then at the first lecture hopefully the teacher will tell us what we will actually need and if i don’t already own it, i will buy it.

  • getting a planner

One of the few productivity things that I’ve sworn by for years are planners. I’ve ordered mine from Aliexpress and it’s yet to come, i have not idea what i’ll do if it’s not here by the time i star school but let’s not think about that right now. Planner is the most essential thing of a productive person, it helps you so so so much with being organised and keeping track of things. Similarly you could use a bullet journal and just combine the two, but i prefer to have them separated. You could also DIY a planner, if you wanted, one of my classmates did it last year and it’s great because you can customise it to your exact needs. Need a page for each day? No problem. Want a yearly overview? There it is. How about a page each month for random scribbles? Why not! 

  • going through the textbook

I am definitely (sadly) not the kind of person, who is able to finish a whole chapter on their own before school even starts, but what i will try to do (as soon as i get my textbooks) is look at the chapter titles and maybe read their summaries. It will give me a glimpse/an overview of what i can expect in that chapter, without actually having to do notes/study it.

  • knowing my timetable/schedule

I hope i am not the only person, who usually still doesn’t know her schedule by, like, mid - January and basically just follows her classmates around all day? I mean i usually know which classes are on which day but I don’t bother with the order? Well, to not be completely lost on the first day/the first week, i will download my schedule on my phone, maybe even save it as my background to have an easy access to it at any time.

  • get to know the people in my classes

This year will be the first time when not there will be a different group of people foe each different class i take (just the way our school system is, i can make a whole new post explaining it, if anyone’s interested), so there’s obviously gonna be people i don’t know. I consider myself an introvert, so meeting new peoople is usually more stressful that anything else because i tend to try to be likeable, and friendly but i kinda can get awkward real fast :’)

So what i will do, is add the people in advance (on various social media) and even if I don’t end up talking to them, by looking at their posts i can maybe get a glimpse of what they like and bring ta up in a conversation. For instance if someone posts a lot of sport related pictures, i can ask them about their favourite sport/sports person…

  • not stress as much

I stress over the simplest, most non-important things. “Should the green binder be for chem or English? The blue for french or history?”… I really want to gain the ability to make decisions faster and more easily. Hopefully I will also be more organised this year and won’t stress about all the assignments that much. Then again, I’m starting the IB so I’m not too sure about that :’)

So this is it for my “realistic” back to school tips aka what i plan on doing. I hope you find at least some useful, if you have any to add,I’d love to read them :)

xoxo, Katie

frizzledizzleizzlehizzle  asked:

I'm trying to write/illustrate a children's book for a project at my school. I have practically zero experience. I was blown away by your illustrations, and was wondering, do you have any tips to having quality illustrations? Do you use watercolor? I love your artwork!

This is such a late response, sorry! Took an unexpectedly large break from tumblr as I was busy with other things so I assume you’ve finished your project now but I hope your children’s book went well, and thanks so much for the kind words! Here are some general things I find really helpful (I was going to reply in private but thought others might like to read this too):

1. Thumbnail sketches. LOTS OF THUMBNAIL SKETCHES. I draw so many of them that if I go to a coffee shop in the morning I can easily come back with one or two full pages of absolutely tiny but relatively detailed doodles so I can see which compositions I like, how a character moves, what’s working, what isn’t etc. This is the part of the process I enjoy the most. The more you draw, the more the ideas keep flowing.
2. Look at shapes, light and shadow. Won’t go into detail about this as there are loads of animation books and blogs out there that cover this in better detail than I could, however I WILL say that greyscale copic markers are a great way to quickly work out value/light and shadow on loose sketches and small compositions.
3. Have a nice workspace. Surround yourself with things that inspire you. Listen to good music. Drink hot chocolate. Whatever works - the nicer your workspace is, the less drawing seems like work and the more it seems like fun, and I find the more fun I’m having, the more I like the end result!  
4. I always have some ‘rainy day’ sketches lying around in sight - small doodles or ideas I sketched or wrote down but had no time to draw properly. If I’m struggling with art block or feeling particularly uninspired, I look at these sketches to jog my memory, and pick one at random to develop further. Sticky notes work well for this. My desk is absolutely covered with them…

That’s all I can think of for the moment, hopefully this ridiculously late response was at least a little bit helpful haha! Have a great day! <3 PS my work is usually mostly digital, although I used to paint a lot with watercolours. 

RFA: MC Is Stressed

I’m sososososo sorry this took so long, we’re all stressed out here. I hope you had a productive and positive week, tho!  -Admin Phae

Yoosung:
- Haha wow
- Does he know this feeling fam
- Because of this he also knows that you shouldn’t put off anything
- Of course if you’ve been working non-stop for a while then you should have a break
- But if something that’s stressing you out is incomplete work then you should make that top priority
- Once you’ve done all that he makes sure to tend to all of your needs!
- Thirsty? Here, let me get you a drink!
- Hungry? I’ll make you whatever you want!
- Hey, you look tense. Want me to give you a massage?
- It’s actually a little overwhelming
- You have to try super heard to get him to stop
- He just wants to help
- Of course if you enjoy it then he’ll wait for any order
- He’s like a very dedicated butler
- But if not then he’ll tone it down
- However he still will get you anything you ask for
- He’s pretty good at taking your mind off things
- Even if he doesn’t mean to
- He’s just so adorable and oblivious that you forget any worries you have temporarily
- He also surprises you with things
- Like little gifts
- And your favourite drink
- And a snack he knows you enjoy
- Even though they don’t cost much you wonder where the money’s coming from
- But he assures you everything is a-okay
- And won’t let you suggest otherwise
- This is the one thing you don’t get a say in
- And he doesn’t expect anything in return!
- (But he’s endlessly thankful if you treat him, too, when he’s like that)

Going down? Tips and tricks to make it better for him.

First, let’s talk hot spots.  I think I’m going to have to bust out the cockshroom again for this one.  Check out C, the frenulum.  This little space on the underside of the cock, where the shaft meets the head, is a hotbed of nerves.  Do not neglect the frenulum!  A few long, slow licks (flatten your tongue for maximum sensation) across it will feel delicious.  I’ll cover other handy tongue tricks for this area later on.  Moving on to B- the coronal ridge, another nerve hotspot.  Lick it, nibble it (gently!), place your lips immediately beneath it and just apply soft suction to the head…he’ll squirm in delight, I promise you.  Just make sure that any suction concentrated on the head isn’t too much too soon. If you want to really rock his world, wait until he’s pulsing (close to orgasm) and just suck the head. It won’t be enough to get him off, just enough to make him beg you to do that with more of his cock in your mouth. ;  ) There’s another spot that deserves attention that isn’t marked on the shroom. (The slit- the opening in the top of his cock. Gently probing it with your tongue can be incredibly pleasurable for him. And don’t give me any crap about it being icky, ladies. It’s not.

Next up, the testicles. Don’t leave the twins out when you’re going down on him.  Just a few of the things you can do to his balls:  lick them while you’re using your hand on his shaft, suck them into your mouth and hum (sounds silly, feels great), lightly scrape your teeth across them, cup them in the palm of your hand while your mouth is busy above them.  If you want to give him an experience he’ll never forget, take all of his cock in your mouth, then stick your tongue out and lick his balls.  This takes some practice (and a limber tongue) but it’s possible. The double pleasure of being deep-throated and having his balls licked will blow him away. Another neat little trick is to cup his balls when he’s close to ejaculation and, just as you feel him start to come, pull them away from his body. Don’t pull too hard- no chainsaw cranking motions!- just tug gently.  It sounds odd and I can’t tell you why that feels good- mostly ’cause I don’t have balls- but it works. For a fun experience, have your guy shave them. You’ll love the smoothness and he’ll enjoy the enhanced sensation.

Tongue tricks:

  • When you first go down, use your tongue as though his cock is a dripping ice cream cone.  (Silly euphemism?  Yes.  Effective technique?  Hell, yes.)  Swirl around his entire cock in a circular motion.  Lick up the sides, being sure to come into contact with the ridge (B) as you move upwards.
  • Start at the very bottom of his shaft, right where his cock and balls meet, and lick slooooooowly all the way up to the tip.  Basically you’ll be tracing the vein on the underside of his cock with your tongue.
  • Follow that same path again, but this time use just the tip of your tongue to softly flicker all the way up and then around the head of his cock.  Flickering your tongue this way makes for a nice contrasting move if you alternate it with firmer licks.
  • Like I said earlier, flatten your tongue and lave the frenulum with it.  Do this a few times, then swipe your entire tongue across the head in a slow motion. Repeat a few times and increase the tempo as you go.  He’ll love it.
  • Make a fist around the bottom of his shaft and press downwards (gently, don’t shove) to tighten the skin across his head and shaft, then start to work on him with your tongue. Holding the skin tight this way will make every touch of your tongue feel more intense.
  • Get the frenulum wet with your  tongue, then slowly slide your finger back and forth across it while you lick the rest of his shaft.

There are a million ways to use your tongue on his cock. Try different strokes and licks until you find things he really likes. Whatever you do, don’t just focus on one part and neglect the rest of him.

The rest of tips and ideas I have for you are pretty random and don’t easily fit into categories like “tongue tricks”, so I’m just going to do them in bullet points.

  • Food play can be fun, so grab the whipped cream or chocolate syrup and make a mess that’s fun to clean up.  Yeah, it’s clichéd, but clichés usually exist for a reason.  If you want to crank things up a notch, use honey- it’s much harder to get all of the honey off so it’ll take more of an effort.  Just don’t get it in his hair!
  • Use your hands. Grab the base of his shaft and suck just the head, squeeze the head gently or work your hand around it (make sure he’s wet first for maximum fun for him) while you lick the shaft.   When you feel like taking a break, grip his cock with both of your hands and move each one in around him a different way.  Do NOT twist too hard, just slide your hands in opposite directions.
  • When you’re in a position where you can really take him into your mouth without worrying about teeth, put your lips on the head of his cock, slide your hands around him, grab his ass and push him into your mouth while you swirl your tongue around him. He’ll probably enjoy the slightly forceful shade to this move.
  • If you’re feeling a little submissive, have him thread his fingers through your hair and hold your head still while he controls the speed and depth of his thrusts into your mouth.  Again, there’s a dom/sub flavor here that gives things an extra little spark.
  • Make sure your position is conducive to good head- there’s the obvious, like kneeling in front of him while he sits on the couch or bed, but other positions work just fine too, like laying on your back and letting him kneel/squat/stand above your head, and, of course, the ever-reliable 69.  Just make sure you’re not coming at him from an angle.  You want him aimed straight towards the back of your mouth, otherwise you’re risking scraping him with your teeth.
  • Speaking of teeth, WATCH THEM! They hurt.  Nibbling is okay, lightly scraping the head or shaft intentionally is just fine.  Grating him against your molars (or, god forbid, incisors) because you’ve got your head or his body turned the wrong way is bad, bad, bad.  Say “teeth” and “blowjob” in the same sentence and most men will cringe.  Spare your man and be careful with your chompers.
  • Pop a breath mint first.  I’m sure you’ve heard it before…pretty much everyone knows about the whole Altoid thing.  Mint = good.
  • Suck.  The term “blowjob” is misleading, obviously. Although wetting the head then alternating warm and cold breaths can be fun as a little bit of a teaser, you don’t really spend any time blowing on it.  Unfortunately, some women don’t realize they’re supposed to actually suck, not just slide their mouths up and down.  Suction is a good thing. (Poor Martha Stewart, I’m wearing her catchphrase out in ways she probably never imagined it would be used.)  You can do this gently or forcefully, but don’t do it too hard. Hint:  if he’s getting a hickey on the head of his cock, you’re overdoing it.  You know that lovely phrase some guys use:  “She could suck the chrome off a trailer hitch”…well, it’s not a compliment.  Hard sucking has its uses, but for the most part you don’t want to pretend you’re trying to rip it off.  That might scare him.  On the other hand, sucking too gently won’t do much for him.  Experiment with different pressures to see what flips his switch.
  • Sometimes it’s great to just dive right in and swallow his cock all at once, but taking it slow can be good too- especially if he’s not hard when you start. Tease him with your tongue, lick and nibble at his inner thighs (yeah, they like it just as much as we do), trail your tongue along the seam on the front of his balls and below them (or even farther if you’re into that).  Touch him lightly with your fingertips or gently drag your nails up and down his cock. Every now and then it’s okay to be a cock-tease.
  • I read about this trick somewhere online a long time ago and fell in love with it immediately:  get a cup of hot tea (not too hot) and a cup of ice water. Get your man hard, then alternate taking sips of each drink.  While holding the liquid in your mouth, slide your lips down over his shaft.  He’ll love the varied sensations!
  • Hum. Take his cock into your mouth and suck gently while you hum.  The vibrations will feel great for him and this is a nice little stopping point if you need a break.  After all, humming doesn’t require much effort.  If you want to make him laugh, try humming “Yankee Doodle Dandy”.
  • Use a small toy or your finger in his ass while you go down on him.  The two pleasures combined will make for a geyser of an orgasm, I promise you.  For more instruction on ass-play, read the archives of my blogs.  I don’t feel like going in to it right now (no pun intended).
  • Take him as far into your mouth as you can get him without actually deep-throating. The goal here is to have the head of his cock at the very back of your mouth but not quite into your throat.  Get him there, then swallow.  The contractions of your upper throat muscles around his cock will have him begging for more of the same.
  • Deep-throating- the holy grail of blowjobs- isn’t as impossible as it seems.  The trick to being able to take him all the way is breath control. Inhale through your nose as you move downwards on his cock, hold your breath until he’s pulling out of your throat, then exhale through your nose while he’s still in your mouth.  If you time it right, you can give him a long, long series of DT strokes without ever fully taking him out of your mouth.
  • If deep-throating is an issue because of your gag reflex, here’s a nice little hint:  use Chloraseptic spray or some other oral analgesic right before you attempt it. Being a little bit numbed will help you control the urge to gag.  Also, move slowly.  You’re less likely to feel like you’re choking if you don’t cram him down your throat before you’re ready to.
  • Look at him while you’re going down. Eye contact makes almost everything in bed better.
  • Pre-come  makes for a great opportunity to give him a visual he won’t forget anytime soon. Look at him and smile while you’re licking it.  He.  Will.  Love.  It.
  • Show him that you’re enjoying what you’re doing.  Moan around his cock (vibrations!) or find some other way to show him you love it.  He’ll appreciate the enthusiasm.
  • For a more mutually beneficial experience, have him touch you while you’re going down. Ladies, having an orgasm while you’re pleasuring him will only serve to increase your talents, I can assure you. Just don’t get too excited and bite down!
  • After he has come, keep him in your mouth and gently suckle him.  Don’t do too much because he’ll probably be sensitive as hell right after ejaculation, but you don’t have to stop altogether.
  • Speaking of coming, let’s talk about swallowing versus spitting.  I’ve covered this in another blog, but for you newbies, men really and truly don’t care which way you do it.  Most men seem to prefer swallowing.  That’s totally understandable but having a preference for it doesn’t make it a requirement.  If you spit, that’s fine and dandy, just avoid spitting it on him in an unladylike way or making a face like you’re disgusted…don’t ruin his moment.  Keep a tissue handy and discreetly spit into it after you’re finished.  If you haven’ t ever swallowed or even taken his orgasm in your mouth, give it a shot (pun fully intended).  It’s not gross, distasteful, or unsanitary.  If you absolutely cannot handle having it in your mouth, then at least use your hand to get him off when he’s ready to blow.  Don’t just pull away and make him do it himself at that final moment…would you appreciate it if he did the same to you?

Love and peace and a lovely piece to you all.

A/N: AAAAAHHHH Beauty and the Beast comes out this week so I’m celebrating it the only way I know how: by making an angsty songfic. So this one is based off the Broadway version’s ‘Home’. It’s one of my absolute favorite songs from all the iterations of Beauty and the Beast!

Word count: 1,737

You’re an idiot of the absolute worst kind.

The city had been evacuated and you were just about to get on the very last bus out of the city when you realized you had left all of your father’s research back at your apartment. Your father urged you to forget about it, that it wasn’t important but you ran off anyway before he could stop you. That research was important, he had been working on it your entire childhood and you just knew that it would change the world one day. You couldn’t just sit by and chance it being destroyed along with the city.

So you ran back into the city, knowing fully well that there would be no more evacuation buses headed out of the city and there was a possibility that you might die. You dad tried to stop you as did the officers guarding the buses but you easily slipped past them. You father tried going after you but the officers were successful in stopping him.

‘Don’t worry dad. We’ve lived in Gotham for over twenty years, I’m sure I can find a way to survive this new level of hell.’

You quickly travel back to your apartment and shuffle through the papers at your father’s desk before stuffing them, along with his numerous notebooks into your backpack. When you thought you had everything that you could possibly ever miss you left your apartment and locked the door behind you. Tightly clutching the straps of your backpack you cautiously made your way to the GCPD building. You figured that would be the safest place for you given the circumstances.

The city is in a worse state than you thought. Criminals run rampant, raiding unsecured stores and breaking into any abandoned cars left of the street. The city is empty so the city’s worms came out to feast on Gotham’s corpse.You kept your head down and tried to avoid drawing any attention to yourself. But of course you couldn’t be that lucky. A group of thugs spotted you and started following you, calling catcalls at you as they stalked behind you. Your heart started racing as you began to quicken your pace. You need to get to the police station now.

You were less than a block from the GCPD building when the thugs roughly grabbed you by the arm and shoved you against the brick wall of a building.

“Pretty and dumb. Just my type.” One of them purred in your ear. You felt like vomiting at the way they were leering at you. One of the thugs reached up and attempted to grab hold of your face but you responded by biting down on his hand. He howled in pain and whipped his gun out, pressing it against your temple.

“Fucking bitch! Give me one good reason why I shouldn’t pump your head full of lead. Gotham’s lawless now sweetheart, no one’s going to care if one bitch drops dead.” He growled, cocking the gun, fully prepared to pull the trigger. You clenched your eyes closed so that you wouldn’t see the shot coming. You nearly jumped out of your skin when you heard a nearby gunshot ring out but you slowly opened your eyes when you realized the shot didn’t come from the gun pressed to your head. You relief was short lived however when you saw that your attacker now had a fresh bullet hole through his temple, his expression now blank and lifeless.

You screamed in fright and shoved the corpse away from you. The body hit the pavement with a hard thud. The other attackers ran off as soon as the shot had rang out but now you were trying to run away as well. Your body ran smack into the assassin, his hands reaching out to take hold of your arms. You let out another scream which he instantly covered with his large hand.

“Do you want to get shot?” He growled through the modified voice his helmet was omitting. With tears streaming down your cheeks you shook your head fearfully. Suddenly, a car speed down the road and squealed to a stop in front of you.

“Get in.” Your new captor demanded. You were hesitant to follow his orders but at the same time you very much wanted to survive tonight. When you were seated in the car he tied a blindfold over your eyes and instructed the driver to go.

“Where are you taking me?” You asked, your voice quivering with fear. The car was silent except for the occasional chatter of the radio in the front seat. Your captor sighed and shifted forward in the seat.

“I’m taking you somewhere safe. Gotham is about to turn into a giant shit show.”

“Please. I just want to go home.” You pleaded.

“Believe me, this is the safest place in Gotham. Nothing bad will happen to you.” He swore. The car drove on in heavy silence until you eventually felt it come to a stop.

“I’m going to pick you up now. I’m not going to hurt you.” He warned before taking you into his arms and lifting you off the seat. He walked with you in his arms for a ways before he set you back on your feet, keeping a firm hand on your shoulder as if to say ‘don’t fucking run’. You hear the click of a lock and he guides you through the doorway before closing the door behind him. He steps behind you and removes the blindfold from your eyes.

You blinked a few times as your eyes adjusted to taking in light again. You were surprised to find that the place he took you to looked like a cozy apartment other than the fact that there were no windows. All the light in the apartment-like bunker came from artificial light sources.

You turned to him, finally getting a good look at him for the first time. He was tall and muscular but that’s about all that you could tell about him because covering his face was a smooth that glowed blue. His whole appearance seemed soldier like and his whole appearance screamed power and control.

“Please let me go. I won’t tell anybody about any of this I swear.” You pleaded once more. Everything about this man frightened you to the bone. How the hell did you get yourself into this mess?

“This is for your own safety. You’ll be safe here for now.” He repeated. “If you need anything there are guards just outside the door.”

“Please I-” You started to argue

“You’re staying here. It won’t be safe out there for you tonight. This is your home for now.” He leaves slamming the door behind him. You rush to the door and turned the handle to find it locked from the outside.

“Let me go! Please!” You cried pounding at the door only to be met with silence. When you realized that you would be getting no help from anyone, you hung your head in your hands and slid down the door. You brought your knees up to your chin and began sobbing. You felt so hopeless and terrified. You just wanted to go home.

When you had no more tears to shed you pushed yourself onto your feet and aimlessly explored what would be your new home. You couldn’t help but to bitterly scoff at the thought. Home? How could you ever consider a place like this home?

Sighing, you walked into what would best be described as a living room and found the remote to the TV, your only line to the outside world. You changed it to the news channel only to see coverage of the carnage that was plaguing the city right now. You supposed your captor was right. There was no way you’d be able to survive up there now. If only for your survival for your father’s sake, this was the best place for you to stay.

Not that you really had a choice in the matter anyway.

Your blood boiled when the news coverage turned to who was behind all this. A photo taken from a blurry security camera was blown up on the screen. On figure was clearly the Scarecrow, the other unknown accomplice at his side was currently being debated by the commentators but you knew that striking figure from anywhere. This man who was plotting to take over the city was the same man who seemed to care enough about your safety to hide you away wherever this place was.

You felt sick to your stomach. Sick that a monster like him showed you some level of consideration, sick that this man had so much power over you and the city, sick that you were powerless to stop any of this. All you could do was sit here, locked away, and watch the horror unfold.

Savior or not, you could never forgive him for what he was doing to your city. If he thinks that sparing you from what he had planned made everything right he needs to think again.

You got to your feet and threw the remote down on the couch behind you. You had to find a way out of here and soon. You started searching the bunker for any way out. The apartment was flawless and had no clear way out other than the front door. The door was clearly not an option seeing as how the Arkham Knight’s men would be standing guard. There is no escape.

You felt a chill strike though your heart. You don’t deserve to lose your freedom in this way but you could see no way out. What you’d give to return to the life that you’ve known lately to escape this entire nightmare and just be back home at your family’s side.

But you can’t. You are at the complete mercy of this monster shut away from the world until who knows when. If you’re here for a day or forever you will never stop trying to escape. He’ll have to build higher walls around you, post an army at your door, change every lock and key before you’d ever stop trying to escape the Arkham Knight.
