Hello, friends! I’ve had a few people interested in finding out how I made thesegradual-colour gifs I posted recently, so I thought I’d do a tutorial for anyone who wants to give it a go :)
As I’ve mentioned before I didn’t use a tutorial myself, I just figured out my own way of doing it using my Photoshop/gif knowledge and an existing gifset as a guide. I also had to work around a few Photoshop glitches I usually struggle with, so my way might be slightly over-complicated ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) But anyway let’s get started!
It shouldn’t be that crazy for a girl to be in a band. I think girls have a really different point of view, obviously, than guys when we write lyrics or when we write music. But I think girls are so strong and girls can play music and guitars and drums and sing just as l o u d or as w e l l as the b o y s.
“We can take a plane and go to St. Tropez. We can lie on the beach, neck-deep in Bellinis until we’re bored, and then we’ll figure it out. What are they gonna do? They’re gonna arrest us? They’re gonna call the tabloids? Honestly, I don’t care, as long as I’m with you.”
Alright I’m known for making mistakes and I’m glad you let me know when I fuck up so I can apologize properly and not do it again so here I go.
So some time ago I reblogged a gifset which was created by @wayhaughts-earp and I deleted the caption and added an ‘x’ linking to their blog (because I’d seen other people do it and I thought it was quite cool).
But recently they messaged me saying I linked to my blog instead. I did. I didn’t mean to but I did which made it seem like I created the gifset (which obviously I didn’t and would never ‘cause I’m a fuckup with no talents😂).
But no hiding behind words, accidentally or not: In the end I did link to my blog (which is fucking rude if you think about it) so I want to apologize to you, @wayhaughts-earp. I’m gonna fix it right away (and should be fixed when you read this post).
Again, I’m really sorry, not gonna try and do cool x’s again.
(Also guys, if you see me do stupid things tell me because most of the time I don’t really realize.)
I was curious about your Timeless plagiarism tag and I looked it up but man, the whole issue looks complicated as fuck, also I didn´t find anything in the article about the similarities, so yeah I don´t know... it's not like Spain invented time travel or anything... I mean Doctor Who?!
Sorry it took me so long to answer but I’ve been looking for a good way to explain the whole thing.
You’re right, the situation is complicated but imagine this: you have this little tumblr blog where you post some gifsets and you are proud of those gifsets and obviously you want them to have more notes. So, you just go to this famous tumblr blog, very popular in the fandom, with tons of followers and you say to them “hey, check out this gifset I made please, I think it’s good, so if you like it maybe you can reblog it so more people can see” And guess what? The big blog really likes your gifset and it’s not reblogging it at the moment but at least they seem interested and they are even asking for more… until one day they stop answering your messages and a few months later you find out they are reposting you gifsets and theirs are getting more notes than yours, the original ones… Pretty unfair, right? Well in this story NBC and Sony are the famous tumblr blog, Timeless is the reposted gifsets and El Ministerio del Tiempo/The Ministry of Time the original ones.
And when it comes to similarities there’s a link to the lawsuit where, in page 11, you can see them all enumerated. I don´t watch Timeless so I really don´t know how much they’ve copied but I can tell you some things about the Spanish show so you can compare:
-The Ministry of Time is a secret time travel organization whose agents are trying to protect history by preventing it from being changed.
-The time travel patrol consists in: a woman who is an expert in history, a soldier and a paramedic who lost his wife and he’s still grieving and wants to go back in time to see her and maybe save her. (I think in Timeless it is the soldier the one who lost his wife, right?).
-They go to different missions but the plot mainly revolves around the same antagonist who is suspected to be working as a double agent, although at the end it’s a little more complicated than that. But no spoilers!
I know there are a lot of things that they haven´t done, like in the Spanish show the agents are from different times: Amelia is a feminist from the XIX century (and one of the first women who went to college in Spain), Alonso a XVI century soldier who is always freaking out about modern stuff, and Julian, the widower paramedic, is a XXI century guy.
But anyway, the other similarities cannot be just coincidental, even now that has been proven that Sony had access to the scripts.
This doesn´t mean I hate Timeless or that I hate people enjoying Timeless. No. What I don´t like it’s people not acknowledging the original work and the creators. And I want justice to be made because the producers in Spain had a big budget problem for the shows third season that was only solved when Netflix came to the rescue, but it was a problem that maybe could have been avoided having NBC and Sony paid for the rights.
Hopefully all of this will be solved at some point and you’ll have Timeless in the US and we’ll have El Ministerio del Tiempo in Spain, and who knows? Maybe some crossovers even…
but but the gang saving a warlock child who can’t be more than four years old on a mission in the brief routine of the calm before the storm and feeling disheartned bc the kiddo is obviously still scared and uncomfortable with them and he refuses to speak so alec calls magnus because lets be honest they suck at being on a break anyway and magnus approaches the tiny kid with tiny antlers as a warlock mark smiling softly and showing him his eyes like he did with madzie, gets on eye level with him while the kid blinks at him a couple times before patting magnus’ cheek and calling him kitty. everyone is on the floor after that
Maybe when you have time can you do scm guys reaction when they found out mc made a doll version of them to sleep with and when they confront her she got embarrassed and states that she made it so she feel less lonely when the gods are busy or something. I hope this make sense
Yeah this makes sense lovely anon :) hope you don’t mind me doing a gifset for this headcanon :) the Gods have such different reactions I thought it would be fun ;)
He’d just smirk at the discovery, his ego would soar into the skies, of course it was only natural that you would have a doll of him. When he asked you about it, you got embarrassed, obviously, but he just hugged you.
“I’ll have to make sure you don’t get lonely too often from now on, I’m better than this doll, arent I?”
What the hell was this? Why was there a doll version of him in your bed? He asked in complete shock, ready to get annoyed, but when he found out you used it when you got lonely, Scorpio just blushed.
“My bad, I’ll make more time for you”
OMG mini him! It was so cute! Not as cute as you were, but he found it so cute and didn’t even ask for an explanation, he just hugged it tightly to himself.
“I’m so cute tiny! Maybe I should make one of you so we can match!”
He’d just get embarrassed at the thought of you using a doll version of him to cure your loneliness, Shadow Dui, however, got extremely protective of you.
“Get rid of the doll, I’m here, you don’t need it”
You were using a fabric thing of him? Oh come on, did you miss him that much when he had work? Pfft, he just teased you senseless. Even if he was a little flattered, he kept it covered.
“Do you carry him to work too?”
He’d laugh and laugh and laugh. He loved it so much that he would bring it to life with his Godly powers. He finally had a small partner in crime to use. Well, sometimes. His sweeter side came out in full.
“The doll will hug you when you feel true loneliness, almost as if I’m here when I physically can’t”
He was so flattered. You made this for yourself? He wanted one of you now, then whenever he felt lonely he could hug it.
“Will you make one of you for me? I get lonely too”
What. The. Hell. Was. This. Thing? You had even got his ponytail perfect. He just stared at the doll on your bed for a good few minutes before hiding it. Clearly he had been ignoring you too much.
Ha…the doll was cute and soft and cuddly, he didn’t really care, it was an extra thing to cuddle while he slept.
Alright, so I got an anon request on how I made this gifset, so I created a tutorial on how to achieve this look by their request! It’s a pretty easy and quick look to do and can be varied in many ways; so for this tutorial, a basic knowledge on how to make gifs is necessary *:･ﾟ✧
So Chuck is kidnapped by somebody (does it really matter who?) and then, like, Herc FREAKS out because that’s his son they’ve got there, that’s his son, and he goes all LIam Neeson on them and saves Chuck and nobody is wearing a shirt for reasons.
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry had their second engagement of the day when they attended the premiere for the new James Bond film, Spectre. They were treated to a screening of the film and met the cast and crew.
Rachel Weisz said about meeting the royals: “Their whole life is about diplomacy so their job is to make you
feel at ease but my goodness do they do it well. I mean, they just put
me right at ease. I was standing behind Daniel. The protocol
was we had to go to the royal box and the wives met them all outside the
box but I had gone to the loo and I was just washing my hands. The guy
in charge of the princes was like ‘The Prince is coming!’… so I didn’t have time to dry my hands. I ran to the spot and
there he was and I curtseyed and I said, ‘Good evening, your Royal
Highness. It’s such a pleasure to meet you. I’m sorry my hands are wet, I
just washed them and I didn’t have time to dry them.’ I was a mess
and [William] looked at me and said ‘At least they’re clean.’ He just
made me feel so good! Then the princess, right at
the end, after the movie and when we were leaving - Daniel’s obviously
been away filming for a year and I’m really pleased that he’s finished
and he’s home - she turned around to me just as she was leaving and
she said: 'I bet you’re glad to have him home.’ And I just… My eyes
filled up with tears because that was exactly what I was feeling and
they make you feel very special. They’re really good!”
“I just remember not feeling confident enough to be on my own… and then I experienced some real things that happened to me, that made me feel, and I understood what it was and what I needed to say. I still haven’t done that yet, but the right step for me was to be on my own and to take it on myself and not have to accept an award or do things with people around and be a woman and do it. You’re always going to be more happy and satisfied doing something that is you and doing something that you made all the decisions, to say i want this, i would love that, you’re obviously gonna be more satisfied.”
