With what endless-nygmobblepot said just then, maybe ed and Oswald and fish are trying to kill babs and tabs?? Idk it's probably a long shot, but it would kinda make sense I guess- GCSE anon

The possibilities are endless! I’m curious as to whether this has anything to do with Ed being “humiliated, completely outdone” because if that’s Oswalds revenge? /Damn/! Or it could simply be maybe Jervis or the Court playing him for a fool.

I’m just.. so excited to see how this season ends and where nygmob is going to end up. I imagine we might not get the romantic conclusion we want, but I am positive there will be a nice setup for it next season! Esp with how giggly smaylor are again djhfhmsf

HOW TO DO HELPFUL CRITIQUES

I feel like sometimes people don’t know how to critique and I think its because people online are very aggressive because of anonymity! Well… I don’t think that’s okay, so this is what being in art school has taught me when it comes to stuff like crits.

So like basic rules I guess:

-BE NICE

If you come off rude you are basically assuring that the artist is not going to listen to you.

-BE SURE THAT YOUR CRIT IS CONSTRUCTIVE NOT DESTRUCTIVE

+Destructive meaning “OMG THIS SUCKS.” Instead of telling the artist what they can improve on to help their skills grow.

-NEVER GIVE UNWARRANTED ADVICE

+Maybe the person isn’t even done! That or maybe they just don’t want to hear it. This is gunna sound mean, but like no one is required to listen to your advice even if it is good!

+ It can also come off as aggressive and rude! If your real intention was to help you wouldn’t start with “Ew why does that look like that.” You are just gunna make the artist feel bad.

Also the sandwich method is a good way to go too! This means that you say one good thing, the down and dirty details that need to be fixed and then another good thing! It makes the person getting the critique feel less panic’d! It also falls under constructive criticism!

A little bit of sensitivity and kindness goes a long way! Have a happy week!

Is the mermaid you draw when replying to asks NOT yourself? Or like, a "mermaidsona", i guess, of yourself?

No, it’s not. Initially I was doing a whole new mermaid for responses, but a year into the blog, life has changed and I don’t always have the time to commit to that. Still, when someone takes the time to send me a nice message I want to give back a tiny bit, so I started drawing this mermaid because it’s simple and I think its cute. 

an extremely exciting development has occured! I was draining water off the first batch of nettles I’ve picked this summer and remarked on what a lovely colour the nettle water had, it got us chatting about traditional yarn dying methods, and it turns out one of the beekeepers’ mums is willing to teach me to spin thread with the wheel they handily have lying around in the old granary here! they also apparently have some raw wool in the attic so maybe by the end of the summer I’ll have made some nice yarn and dyed it with that lovely rich shade of green you get off the nettles. I have no idea what I might do with yarn that lovely but I guess if I know how to make it it’s not so precious and I can just add spinning to my endless list of hobbies…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SAM WINCHESTER! 🎈 (Born May 2, 1983)

Six of Crows as musical

- Wylan would be the protagonist and the whole musical is about him developing from this good mercher’s son to this badass gang member
- Jesper is one of the main reasons for the character development
- Jesper and Nina would sing all the jazzy songs
- Kaz would be that person who is all gloomy in the beginning and isn’t too fond of music but then discovers the joy music brings
- He learns to play the piano pretty quick and he’s a fucking genious
- Inej would sing all the slow songs accompanied by Kaz on the piano, if he’s in a good mood he might join in and sing aswell
- but mostly he just wants to listen to Inej sing because her voice is too angelic and so damn pure
- Matthias doesn’t like joining in the singing but sometimes Nina can convince him to play the guitar
- Nina and Jesper love the dancing parts, all the others hate dancing

I met the Sweetest Couple

So just a heads up I’m mentioning race but it’s not negative at all, quite positive, and crucial to the story.

So I’m stocking things in our cosmetics, and I see this male (white) frantically looking around in our black hair care section, glasses askeew, hair all meessed up. I ask him if he needs help finding anything and the poor guy was shaking like a leaf but he breathes this huge sigh of relief when he notices me. (Note: I’m black, native american, and samoan).

He proceeds to explain to me his girlfriend (also mixed like me) has been wanting to transition her hair for a while from perm to natural. But everytime she thinks about it she realizes the products and upkeep necessary are just too much for her. So I immideatly jump into action as transitioning is something I’ve had experience with before.

I ask him about her hair type; the texture, the thickness, fragility, everything. Based off his description I start giving him the low down on how perms work and point out the products she would need to grow out her hair happily. The things she’d have to do and what not. He just nods eagerly and soaks up the information like a sponge. He then buys this cute basket since it’s around Easter time we have tons of these things, to put it all in.

Since I had helped him find the products I was familiar with I actually look up tons of coupons for them like buy one get one ½ off, or buy two get one free. He’s so grateful and estatic, it was contagious happiness.

Well a a week later I see him come with his girlfriend. After he points me out to her she makes a beeline towards me. Shakes my hand, asks for a hug, an tells me how lovely all the products are that she recieved. How she’s so happy that her boyfriend did this and I helped them both so much by doing this. She left a stellar review for me apparently to my manager and my store site. AND THEN, she leaves this huge package of homebaked cookies and I guess she knew the rules on our gift policy cause she also sneakily left a gift card in there with a bit of money on it.

They were so nice, they make up for all my shitty experiences

Siblings

So, I had this thought after reading several stories about humans giving birth and not having eggs.  What if aliens do not have ‘family units’ the same way humans do, but instead raise children in more of a group setting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Captain H'roll'ah was excited to have hired on not just 1 but 3 humans, all of whom were extremely qualified for space travel.  Even better, they were all from the same clan and so there would be no rivalry or refusal to work together because of old scores to settle.

“Captain! Three humans just came in a have taken over the dining area! WHAT SHOULD WE DO?!?” Ensign Khralhen was out of breath and panicked, but his species was notoriously afraid of humans after it became public knowledge how dangerous they were.  Not that his own was much better, but H'roll'ah knew that these humans should be here and it was probably near a meal time for them.  How could such an evolutionary advanced and apated species not figure out a way to avoid needing 3 or meals a day was beyond H'roll'ah.

“It is fine, Ensign Khralhen.  These are likely the Humans that I just signed on to the crew.  They are from the same clan, so they should work at peak efficiency,” the Captain answered, trying to put as much calm and soothing into his voice as possible, “Let us go introduce ourselves and welcome them so that the ‘pack-bonding’ can begin.”

~~

“Greetings, I am Captain H'roll'ah and this is Ensign Khralhen, our cook.”

“Nice ta meetcha! Cook, huh? Guess we best buddy up to you right quick then!” said the male.  He was average height for a human and perhaps a little on the heavy side, but H'roll'ah knew that it was likely muscle not fat.  After all, this human and one of his female companions were security personnel.

“Always thinking with you stomach, Thomas.  How about you buddy up to the Captain, so that we do not get kicked off this boat? Hmm?” said the smaller female, later identified as Samantha or “Sam” for ease.  "Small" being used only in comparison because she did not have the bulk of her clanmates.  She must be the medical officer.  H'roll'ah was worried that she would be distant from her clanmates but her body language suggested extreme comfort and trust, above what H'roll'ah felt for his own clanmates of different castes.  The third human, Laura if the captain remembered correctly, remained silent but was constantly looking around, as if expecting an attack at any moment, not that strange considering all that H'roll'ah had hear about Earth.

“Well then, please tell me what times that the three of you eat, and I will prepare food for you then.  Also, please tell me any dietary restrictions you have so that you do not have any medical incidents,” Khralhen said, realizing that the humans could be bribed with food as easily as a Con'valix could be bribed with fruits.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

(3 Months Later)

Captain H'roll'ah was surprised at how well the humans worked together.  He thought that they might exceed standard human operating efficiency by 10%, but regularly they were 20-25% better than the reported average.  They barely needed to vocalize to communicate, and they were able to remember each other’s needs and the needs of the crew extremely well.  Captain H'roll'ah decided to ask them how they did it, and if it was a clan trait, where he could hire more humans of clan “Walker.”

“Thomas clan Walker, do you have a few minutes to talk about personal matters?” The captain asked, assuming that Thomas would, since he was off shift and relaxing in the lounge.

“Sure thing, hoss.  What can I do for you?  And I hope this isn’t about my or Laura’s tattoo’s, because we had to settle a bet on that a few days ago,” Thomas answered easily.  He was a bit flippant for the captain’s taste, but his results were impeccable and the other humans followed his lead, which spoke volumes for the man.  

“I was hoping that you could explain how you and your clanmates have achieved such a high efficiency rate.  You perform well above average, even for clanmates who grew up together.”

“Clanmates? Oh, that’s right! Sam mentioned that your species, and most species on this ship raise their young in a group setting and the kids hatch from eggs, right?”

“That is correct, and please do not remind me that human females carry their young in their bodies like a parasite.  The last time Sam explained that, it was enough to make all of us wonder how humans have managed to reproduce at all.” H'roll'ah still shuddered when he thought of it, and Khralhen wasn’t able to cook for 3 days after Sam had explained human reproduction.

“Fair enough, I think we reproduce more by accident that anything else, but yeah.  Me, Laura, and Sam are not clanmates like you think,” Thomas chuckled and shook his head, “We are siblings.”

“I do not know this word,” H'roll'ah answered uneasily.  In his experience, an unknown term from a human meant that something painful, gross, horrifying, or all 3 was about to be revealed.

“Sam could explain it better, and having Laura here only seems fair…” Thomas trailed off as he reached for his comm.  "Hey, brats (again with the casual disrespect), can you both get up to the lounge? Captain wants to know about siblings.“ H'roll'ah was always surprised that Thomas clan Walker could be disrespectful when asking for others to do something.

“Sure, be right up,” Sam responded.  She was likely a floor up in the medical facilities and wanted to take a break.

“Grrhhrhhgg.” Laura clan Walker had been sleeping, then, and did not want to come.

“Thanks, ladies, you can both explain family better than me.”  Now the captain was worried again because there was a second new word being bandied around.

~~~

“So, captain, a family unit for humans is very small compared to yours of Ensign Khralhen’s,” Sam explained, “A family is usually made up of the mother and/or father or a surrogate who has assumed that role and the children.  It usually numbers no more than 4-7 individuals.”

“But…But…how do you grow or develop? And to place all that burden on only one or two adults, how do they do anything else?” spluttered K'roll'ah.  He was shocked to find out that humans in the region called ‘America’ did not have an open community.

“Well, children who share 1 or both parents are called “siblings”, and they develop together.  The adults are called “parents”, and yeah, there is a definite loss of freedom involved.“

“So then, you three are…siblings?” H'roll'ah asked.

“Yes, Thomas is the oldest, and Laura is the youngest, with me in the middle,” answered Sam, “and our father bailed on us after Laura was 3 years old, so Tom became the ‘man of the house’ at 7 years old.”

THAT explained Thomas clan Walker’s attitude! Captain H'roll'ah realized that Thomas clan Walker had been in a command position and not had a commander from a young age!

“So that is why you both follow him? He is the new leader”

“Kind of, he is just the best at leading.  He knows what to do and does it well.” Laura answered, which was rare; she was the most quiet of the three.

“And the reason for your peak efficiency?” Captain H'roll'ah asked, determined to get an answer to his question.

“Well, we have known each other all our lives and spent most of those lives in close proximity to each other.  We just understand each other from the long familiarity and exposure.”

“Ah, the same way a pilot becomes better from being on the same ship, just with a person instead.”

“Exactly! And if you are interested in hiring others we are familiar with, we have some cousins, children of our parents’ siblings, who we know very well and want to get into space.”

“Then I will look them up, thank you for answering my questions." 

Humans were a strange species.  Instead of focusing on a large community, they developed close bonds with only a few people who share familial ties with them.  Captain H'roll'ah did hire the 'cousins’ and they worked out very well.  The human guidebook was updated to notify captains that humans sharing close blood ties have the potential to perform at higher than normal efficiency.  

~~

Now somebody write a story about a captain hiring siblings who hate/cannot stand each other!

So this is the same campaign as the one where my friends girlfriend almost bisected his new familiar.
They’re walking through the forest when they come upon an ogre. They kill him, sturdy, and divide up the XP. Night comes and they happen across a clearing where they find a lady ogre sleeping. She is woken by their approach and they realize they probably killed her mate.
She looks around. She looks at them. She looks down, sad now. She looks back at them, Angry
As I’m about to tell them to roll for initiative, the ranger steps forward.
It’s important to know that in the beginning they were searching for disguise kits and. He rolled so poorly that I gave him a Shrek costume
“Wait! I still have the ogre mask. I want to convince her I’m her husband.”
We’re all sitting around the table, just staring at him. I’m kind of like “wut”. He repeats and I’m like “fuck it, whatever. Roll deception”.
Nat20 plus bonuses. Everyone is flipping shit, myself included. Now the others want to join the clearing, but they don’t know what she’ll do when they enter, so my ranger, who has been picked up and is now in the arms of his loving ogress, says “I want to lull her back to sleep.”.
OKAY. SURE. ROLL PERFORMANCE.
20 plus bonuses. These are brand new dice, gifted to him by one of my other players, so I know nothing is up. We’re all losing our damn minds here because he has just sung this fucking ogre to sleep.
So me, being the DM who had this nice encounter set up, I was feeling a tad vindictive.
“You’re still tightly clutched in the sleeping ogre’s arms. What do you do?”
After they quickly discuss killing her, he stand up, slams his hand on the table, and shouts “I WANT TO SLIDE OUT O F HER GRASP”.
This is where I have him. I know it. I have him make a Dexterity roll.
Can you guess what happened, because I sure as shit didn’t. A third nat 20 plus bonuses.
Needless to say, we lost our shit.

Dean’s Plaid

Summary: You and Dean do NOT get along. Until the night that you do.

Warning: smut, anger sex

Word Count: 3200

A/N: Hope y’all enjoy some Dean smut! XOXO

There are two things in the world you really hate: plaid and Dean Winchester.

There are plenty of things that you don’t like, that irritate and annoy you, that you’d rather not deal with. But those are the only two things you actively hate. A store with a window display of plaid clothing is enough to get your blood boiling these days. And Dean? Well, you make sure you never think of Dean. That just tailspins your world into a mess of violent anger for days before it wears off.

So the fact that you are currently wearing one of Dean Winchester’s plaid shirts, listening to him hum along with the radio as he drives you to his motel?

Yeah. You’re gonna need something to kill.

Or you could just kill Dean.
