Dwalin had once asked him, bare-headed and rough-skinned, if he’d rather have stayed safe and dry at home, after all. Fili’s gaze had naturally sought Kili, and found his familiar frame pinned against a hazy dawn, his hair still damp from a stormy night on deck. He’d been smiling his secret smile, the young rogue, all pink lips and starlit eyes, his shoulders curled in Fili’s jacket against the morning chill. “No,” Fili had simply said. He couldn’t have longed for home if he wanted to. Home had set sail with him a long time ago, and it was standing right in front of him, mischievous and beautiful and more his than his very soul had ever been. ~by rillils
tbh i hope hoseok isn’t stressing too much these days under the pressure to bring out his mixtape asap bc fans ask about it so much like… i hope he’s not feeling forced to work as hard and fast as possible to make us happy :((
So, I saw how you answered an ask about the Ocean Soul and how you might not put it up on Webtoon because you wanted go retain publishing rights (which is great because if you do publish it, you deserve all the royalties.) But it made me wonder, do you not have publishing rights for UtA because you put it up on Webtoon?
I have to first make a distinction between the Daily Featured Webtoon roster and Webtoon itself as a free publishing platform. Creators on Daily Featured are under contract to produce regular, weekly episodes for a salary. The story and characters remain ours, but we relinquish our online publishing rights to Webtoon, meaning only they can feature our stories exclusively online.
Of course there are folks that download the stories and post them on third-party manga sites which really hurts us creators and prevents us from receiving additional views that translate into financial support. (So please avoid reading webtoons on any sites that aren’t the official Webtoon site)
Where was I? Oh yeah. No, I don’t have the publishing rights for UtA since I was under contract, but like I’ve been saying, I hope to post it there once I have enough for an episode, as an independent creator using Webtoon just as a publishing platform.
I wanted to send @yokoboo some Hope You’re Feeling Better flowers, but then I realized I’d have to draw them, because you can’t send real flowers through the internet (yet). And then I was like, if I’m gonna be drawing flowers obviously I might as well also draw Thistle. So here we are. Glad your migraines have been winding down, Yoko! We love you!
on another note, this is legit the best I’ve done at line variation ever and I’m kinda mad cause it turned out a lot better than the actual stuff I’ve been trying to work on for Doodleberry Jam lol. That might actually be because I’ve been practicing lines more this month though so hey!! :D
((Headcanon: Loki is terrified of the sound of thunder, and will generally remained curled up in bed with the blinds closed until the storm has passed.
Also, I believe at one point, when he and Thor were young, Loki touched his brother too soon after he had summoned lightning (before Thor was old enough to fully control it) and he tumbled backward from the shock he received.
“I believe it’s the best fit we’ve thought of so far, darling.” Magnus glances up at Alec, but only for a moment. His focus is still thoroughly fixed on little Blueberry, nestled in his arms, wriggling all his tiny limbs with much more energy than they’d hoped he’d have at four in the morning. Magnus desperately wishes he were already old enough to run laps, do jumping jacks, do anything to tire himself out.
Alec bends over Magnus’s chair, rests his chin on Magnus’s shoulder. “I just don’t want it to be like we went with the first thing we could think of.” He loops an arm around Magnus, so he can let Blueberry grab one of his fingers. “I want to make sure we put some effort into it.”
Magnus smiles. “If we came up with the right name on the first try, that’s just good luck. Taking more time won’t make other names any better.” He shifts Blueberry a little, tries to get him situated higher in his arms. “Why don’t we get his opinion?” He tilts his head down. “What do you think, Max? Is that the right name for you?”
Blueberry wiggles, shaking Alec’s finger vigorously. He lets out a gurgle, then another. And it morphs into a loud, bubbling laugh.
Alec hums. “Well, I guess that settles it.” He rubs his thumb across Blueberry’s hand. “Hello, Max.”
-send me a character or pairing, and a prompt, and I’ll write a three-paragraph fic for you!-
Our conscious minds are very spread out. We worry about the past. We worry about the future. We label. And all of that stuff just makes us very separate. What I’m trying to do is just quiet it down. Put that brain down from time to time and hope those periods of quiet and stillness get longer. When you do that, what rises from the mist is a kind of surrendering. You’re more connected as opposed to being separate. A lot of the questions about destiny or fate or purpose or any of that stuff—it’s not like you get answers. You just realize you didn’t need the questions.
