so this is what I made instead

At the moment I am thinking so much about the right color choice when I draw and… maybe I just made it too difficult for me. I want my pictures to have an overal feeling. I want it to portray emotions. So maybe next time, instead of just a sketch of a character I will start with colors that just portray how I feel or I want this painting to feel and then add forms that do that too and I think of the composition and place the colors more directly and then start with the sketch.

Like I still have an idea what I wanna draw, a camel or what, but with setting all of this before I am more secured when it really is about drawing.

I dunno, I am just rambling for myself and write it on here so I won’t forget. 

Thinking about color harmony and what they express and what forms mean and stuff like that. Which way your eye should go… I want to draw real illustrations and not just characters that are placed on a one colored background… 

Ok but no, I’m not going to act like everything is fine because it’s the last clip of Skam like this is a joke right ?
How can you spend time to write a love story about 2 people and send one of them in Turkey and not ending their story I’m so mad right now I swear they had time for made Yousana rise but instead they sent him in Turkey WHAT THE HELL tell me this is not the last clip this is a joke THEY DIDN’T EVEN ADMIT THAT THE’RE IN LOVE anD DON’T COME AT ME WITH “THEY DON’T NEED TO TELL EACHOTHER ABOUT THEIR FEELINGS” I’M SO PISSED I SWEAR I’VE NEVER BEEN THIS DISAPPOINTED I MY LIFE

Seventeen reaction to their S/O sleeping with a stuffed animal (vocal unit)

To say you were embarrassed when Jihoon found your stuffed penguin would be an understatement. When he noticed your heavy blush, he realized what was going on and immediately assured you that he thought it was adorable that you slept with it (probably with a blush on his face too).

“Look, I can make him waddle around! Y/N, he’s so soft and cute, but you’re still cuter.”

You were nervous about Jeonghan finding out that you slept with a stuffed unicorn because you thought he would tease you. Instead, he suggested getting one for himself so that he could think of you when you were separated. He often sent you selfies of him and his stuffed animal because he knew it made you happy.

“Mr. Unicorn and I both say goodnight, and we love you! Sleep well Y/N!”

Joshua

To be honest, he actually bought you that bunny plush on a date, so finding out that you slept with it had Joshua flustered in the best possible way. He’d be giggly and insanely happy that you liked his present, and even happier when you told him you cuddle it when he wasn’t there to hold you.

“I’m so happy you like the bunny! I kinda want to buy you a million stuffed animals now… You’re way too cute.”

When Seungkwan found out that you couldn’t sleep without a stuffed animal, he began collecting them for you every time he went on tour. Eventually you had to tell him to stop because you had waaay too many. That didn’t stop him from sending you pictures every time he saw a plush he thought was cute though.

“Okay, I know you said you don’t need more stuffed animals but… This one is so cute can I please get it for you?”

When he found you asleep with a teddy bear on the couch, Seokmin suddenly had the urge to grab you and wake you up with kisses all over your cheeks. So he did. You woke up complaining at first, but any protests you had died out when you saw his smile.

“I’m sorry I woke you up, but it’s not my fault that you’re too adorable to resist. I didn’t know you had a teddy!”

I think I’d be pretty fine with Yousana’s story finishing that way, if the clip had been packed with girl squad things, or something else related to Sana like her family, Elias, Jamilla, SOMETHING.

But they used up a good 5 minutes on the love square nonsense and that’s what made me feel so furious. Those five minutes could have been spent on Sana bonding with her mom and dad, or maybe her bonding with Vilde, who finally celebrated Sana’s culture for once, instead of judging it.

I know that this episode had to tie all the loose ends, but adding scenes that could have easily been replaced with crucial or heartwarming moments between Sana and some person of colour makes my heater ache.

It shouldn’t be this hard to make a women of colour the centre of a story dammit.

It’s been a while since the last update, but don’t worry, I haven’t gotten lazy!

In fact, I’ve spent the past month and a half working hard on a new music module for the game engine. Because what’s an 8-bit game without 8-bit music?

As for the game, we’re almost done with the core features! So here’s the new scoreboard; instead of more menus, I made a little cutscene where the characters each exit the cave, revealing themselves. Sun be praised!

Yooo, I remember when you used to type as ENTP so what signs or characteristics made u realize u use Se instead of Ne?

It had to do with me finally deciding I was thinking too much so I Stopped Thinking. And then bang bang bang, Ni came knocking on my door and I had this weird stock epiphany that went along the lines of “Dirt’s real. I can stick my hands into dirt. I can’t, however, stick my hands into Politics.” I left the situation with a better understanding of both dirt and politics, as well as the things that I could and couldn’t stick my hands inside of. 

From then on I started thinking again, and it was a lot different than the way I was doing it prior to that moment. I started in the domain I //could//, in fact, stick my hands into and used the knowledge to deal with the domains I couldn’t stick my hands into. It worked. 

But in actuality, I realized that a lot of the N types I knew had very different priorities than me, and I started hanging out with more people which provided better insight into how others view me. It’s definitely as some sort of xSTP lol, but the I vs. the E really depends.

how do i fight my fear of gyms? (and people watching me do stuff)

dude that is such a real thing for sure and as someone with an anxiety disorder I can say it took me years to get to a point where I’d willingly go to a gym. I usually try to go at times when I know there aren’t as many people, I joined a gym that’s big on no judgment (Planet Fitness, would recommend. Hella cheap and chill), and i made it a point to listen to podcasts or music every time I work out so I can sort of focus inward instead of on what’s around me. Also remember everyone in the gym is looking at and thinking about themselves, they are all there because they want to work on themselves and you being there is really not that important to them.


Realizing I was just an NPC in the lives of every person around me was such a great relief, would recommend that mindset.

morning musume‘17 live @ hk presscon

i figured out from twitter today that mm17 was arriving in hk, but the transportation fare being pricey + me being entirely too far away made going to the airport out of the question, so i gave up on the idea and went out shopping instead… but i pulled up twitter again and wait, what’s this.. they’re holding a presscon in 30min at a mall literally 1 train stop away from me??? heck yeah i’m going!!

although they didn’t sing today, this is my second time seeing mm!! (first time was during the my vision tour last year)

venue

  • a mall named windsor house in causeway bay – its design is very reminiscent of ikebukuro sunshine city with the multiple levels of balconies (it’s much smaller though)
  • supposed to start at 5pm. by the time i got there at 4:40pm, the ground and second levels were already packed, so i found a spot off to the side on the third floor balcony. not that bad esp. considering how late i got there (ppl on the ground level in front and center had been there for 2-3 hours already??)

demographics

  • felt like a healthy, even split between guys/girls
  • the crowd seemed largely local/non-japanese – the host asked if there were any japanese ppl here and not many people responded
  • anecdotally, it felt like the majority of the local (and vocal) crowd were girls in 10s? 20s? and the japanese crowd were (suitcase lugging) older guys
  • not too many wota Ts but a good # glowsticks

the presscon itself

  • late start at 5:30 pm, lasted roughly an hour. i’m sure better pics and videos are out there so i wont bother much with my subpar phone photos

1) introduction: mm17 introduce themselves as a group in cantonese (no individual intros). there’s a small funny part when they first walk in where maachan stares at the backboard (the pic of them in the morning coffee outfit) and her body language was like “whoa look it’s us!!” lol. yokoyoko, akanechin, and maachan wore sneakers?/non-high heels – i hope it’s pre-cautionary and they’re not injured.

2) press picture-taking: mm17 takes pics with some big wigs (sponsors of the event, record label owners, etc). the big wigs had red wine while the girls had orange juice lol.

3) press q&a: i hardly remember what was asked & answered but it was all generic stuff like “how do you find the hk fans”, “what are you looking forward to doing in hk”, etcetc. fuku-chan (?) mentioned that hk fans are very vocal about their support.

4) fan interaction segment #1: 3 fans were invited up onto the stage to dance jealousy jealousy with the members and received autographed posters

5) fan interaction segment #2: 2 fans were invited up to be instructed by members how to do sexy, cute, and cool poses. ayumin was very insistent on teaching the fan to do her signature hair flip thing for the “cool” pose lol. the fans got autographed posters.

6) fan group picture: the girls took a photo with the fans on the ground level 

end of event

  • some people hung around even though the event ended, but i was like w/e and just left the mall since it was really hot and stuffy… which turned out to be a good thing, because i got to see yokoyoko & everyone else filing into a minivan in the parking lot! they had closed curtains so we couldn’t see them on the van, but oda waved at us from the back

other thoughts

  • not really complaining since this is free, but for a presscon, this was weirdly fan-centric. i’m happy to see the chosen fans happy but there were only like 2-3 members who spoke more than once and i honestly dont even remember hearing akanechin say anything. i wish they had more member-centric stuff!
  • same “issue” i had with the my vision tour: ppl around me were lukewarm and weren’t willing to make noise!! i tried my best to cheer generically but it was hard to not feel like a deranged asylum escapee when i got roped into yelling “KAEDII!!!” by some other fans yelling elsewhere. i think the guy to my left started cheering more though since i was doing it next to him :D

anyway this was just a 1 hour presscon and the actual concert is tomorrow! i haven’t even decided what merch to buy yet (tbh everything is pretty ugly ._.) but i’ll get some rest now and think about that tomorrow…

thank you for saving my life

Hi you guys its me,Anna.It was one year ago that i decided to give tumblr a go.It saved my life.No..im saying it in the literal sense.

I,for reasons unknown, have had anxiety all my life.And ive been ashamed of it all my life too.I spent my childhood thinking about everything that could go wrong instead of focusing on what was good.It might’ve been my family background that made me anxious about every single person that came ‘round or many other mishaps that caused my trust issue but you see I never wanted to speak about this abominable thing that made me weak.I was so wrong.The 8 year old Anna was so so wrong.

Because its true what they say,bottled up emotions do exolode.And I started getting these severe panic attacks that they had to haul me out during class.And a class i was supposed to be doing well in.But i couldn’t anymore.I lost all my friends because i couldn’t confront them.

And them my dog,Muffin,my sweet baby ,died on the day of my birthday.And that was the time when i seriously considered it.Considered that maybe i could have control of my life at least once if i chose to end it.I was so wrong & am still so sorry to have thought that way.

But then Louis and Harry came along.Their fight inspires me everyday.Niall and Liam show me how to support your friends and be loyal.And all you guys on here gave me life.So i’d like to mention some of y'all

@sivancrews you were my first friend on here and u were there when i had nobody i love u sm for that💕

@everyone-is-gay Jo,you are so lively and so friendly and just im so grateful to have gotten to know you.love💚

@kingofkiwis sobia sweetheart you are a gem.You inspire me by how hard you work and how mature you are to know that procrastination is wrong and you try so hard to avoid it.i love you babes💟

@isakkxeven i spoke openly to you about my struggle for the first time.Elliot,you teach me how to be kind and strong.You and Isaak are so strong and im so happy and proud of you two.Stay happy always💞

@louislittlefeetsies , @bus1pride you let me talk and tag you in games and just bear with me.You have been so kind.

Whenever i open this and see you all on my dash takes a bit of the burden away.I see you struggle alongside with me and you give me strength..you did give me strength.You taught me how to be proud of who I am.It has saved my life.

If i missed anyone im sorry im a fucking mess right now.And sorry this got long but i needed to say it.

I guess i’ll see y'all around.

anonymous asked:

About the Pluto and regeneration thing, what would it mean if I had it in the first house in Sagittarius?

Well the signs for generational planets aren’t of significance to people personally, instead the generation or time frame is more significant.When Pluto was in Sagittarius, Pluto made its mark on things related to Sagittarius. Sagittarius rules the 9th house and the planet Jupiter which relates to things like foreign countries,travel,religion,education,philosophy and so forth. Pluto rules many things, extremes,taboos,transformation,regeneration and things like that.

However when it comes to houses and aspects, these show how generational planets affect you personally and Pluto in the 1st house experiences many personal transformations throughout life(who doesn’t tbh,it’s just Pluto in the 1st more than most possibly). They’re masters of self reinvention and are almost even required to regenerate themselves. The first house is physical appearance and how you project yourself so it can be said that these people’s appearances can change and transform dramatically throughout life as well as the way they project themselves. While Pluto can make things different, Sagittarius ascendants are know to be jovial,moral,honest, and generous. They’re adventurers and always on the go as they make it a goal to explore and experience the new. Sagittarius risings are free, independent souls. Sag risings with Pluto in the 1st are definitely a concept if u ask me.

Theory time....

Alright so I want to talk about this

Now, I know that this has been talked about a lot (and I’ll probably discover that someone already talked about this before) but I want to give my thoughts, as I haven’t seen anyone say this theory yet. So hear me out please.

Alright, so far I’ve seen a bunch of different speculations about what is going on in the above picture. Back before season 2 came out, I think the largest theory surrounding this was that this was proof that he was galra, as it made his skin turn purple and shows his galra form. Even now people still think that is what it is even though they don’t need it anymore to try and prove that Keith is galra.

Lately I’ve seen a bunch of theories about him also being a druid, and saying that that is why his hand looks like that instead of the glowy wounds like Shiro and Thace’s.

Then there is the simpler theories of the magic just burned his hand and the pure quintessence healed it.

All or any of these could very well be true, but consider this;

The purple in his hand is corrupted quintessence.

On The Adventure Zone Graphic Novel, Blue Taako, and Representation

 Yesterday, we revealed some pages for our graphic novel adaptation of the first Adventure Zone arc, and received some criticism of the direction we went with for Taako’s coloring. This artwork reveal came some months after the first reveal of some of our characters, for which we also received criticism of our three leads, all of whom were white in these initial designs. Us and the graphic novel team realized that, yes, that is extremely bad, went back to the drawing board, and had several long discussions about how to best rectify this situation, resulting in the artwork revealed yesterday.

More or less all of the criticism we’ve received centers on Taako, whose skin is a pale blue color in these designs. What we’ve heard most is disappointment that Taako is not realized in these pages as a person of color — or, to be more specific, a Latinx or explicitly Mexican character. There was concern we had failed to follow through on an opportunity to get better representation for Latinx listeners, instead opting to take a safe route, and make Taako a fantasy color without any kind of real-world connection. Much of the criticism also focuses on how that color (or, to be more specific, green skin) has anti-semitic connotations.

This conversation was happening in certain corners of our fandom long before the graphic novel art reveal took place yesterday. We’ve heard criticism from some folks over our policy of not having canonical visual representations of any of our characters — a policy that has resulted in a genuinely humbling ocean of fan art, but also some instances of in-fighting between members of the community who take umbrage with one another’s disparate interpretations of these characters. Another criticism of that policy is that it inherently does not foster good representation, and in fact represents a noncommittal way of handling racial representation on this show.

Here’s the truth of the matter: I think all of this comes from this underlying friction between where The Adventure Zone and us, its creators, were when we started doing the podcast, and where we, the show, and you, the community, are at now.

I think claims that BTS never had a “hit” song in Korea, that everyone knew or was widely popular can be an insult to BTS. Because when you think about it, what made them popular wasn’t a ‘one hit’ wonder or viral video, but more so their growth in musicality and exploration of universal issues that slowly built their star image.They didn’t need to always create a ‘catchy’ song to stay relevant, but instead grew step by step and hurdled their way to the top. They are the epitome of musical growth built overtime, which combined with their social platform and constant communication, gave them the ability to break barriers for Kpop.

So, I saw a really negative post that made me cringe very hard. BUT. Instead of spreading negativity on that post (and bros I was sorely tempted), I’m just gonna make a positive one to counteract it:

I support male witches!
I support non-binary witches!
I support trans witches!
I support genderfluid witches!

If you wanna call yourself a witch, fucking have at it!

‘Cause guess what? “Witch” is a gender neutral term my friends!

(But also, if you don’t like the term, you aren’t forced to use it - whatever makes y’all comfortable, there are alternatives.)

You are valid, and your gender does not dictate how much magic you have in your body, or your magical potential. Fucking full-stop.

The telltale Marauder’s Map

Imagine Harry dragging the Marauder’s Map everywhere with him, just so he can keep an eye on Malfoy at all times. (Yeah okay, you don’t really have to imagine this part, because it happened.) Ron and Hermione are so fed up with him, because Harry is so absorbed in his map, they can’t even have a normal conversation with him.

The only time Harry isn’t staring at the map, is when his eyes are fixed on the actual Malfoy, walking past him. Hermione jumps at the chance and grabs the map. She’s not planning on hiding it or anything. She knows all too well she would never get away with it. Harry would probably even threaten to hex her if she didn’t give it back. She instead doodles something on it and grins, when the little heart she made around Malfoy’s dot sticks and moves along with it.

As soon as Malfoy is out of sight, Harry’s gaze wanders back to the map.

“Guys, I really think he’s up to- What is that?” Harry exclaims. Ron looks over his shoulder and snickers.

“Well, I think Hermione nailed it, mate.”

After that, Harry blushes every time he looks at the map. He’s so flustered, he doesn’t even realize the heart-framed dot is approaching him rapidly, even though he’s staring at it.

“What is it with you lately, Potter?” Malfoy drawls, startling Harry. He’s standing right in front of him and Harry is so surprised, he’s too slow to react when Malfoy grabs the Marauder’s Map out of his fingers. “Are you turning into a bookworm? Wherever you go, your nose is always buried in… some… parchment…”

Malfoy frowns as he looks at the map.

“What is this?”

Harry doesn’t answer. He’s beginning to sweat and his heart is beating rapidly.

“Give it back, Malfoy,” he grumbles and snatches it from him.

But judging from Malfoy’s incredulous look, he already saw… it. Bloody hell! Why did Hermione have to do that?

“Dear Merlin, what are you, Potter, five?” Malfoy sneers. But it hasn’t escaped Harry that his cheeks have turned pink and his voice is a bit shaky.

“Would you rather I kissed your dot goodnight before I go to sleep?” Harry counters. But… wait…

Malfoy opens his mouth, but doesn’t say anything. He just stares at Harry.

“Wow, um… I really don’t know why I said that,” Harry murmurs sheepishly.

“Do you do that?” Malfoy asks in a high-pitched voice.

“No?” Harry doesn’t know why his answer sounds like a question, because it’s the truth. He has never done that, nor would he ever do it.

Okay, so he stared at the heart-framed dot, wondering if Hermione might actually be on to something. Maybe he even imagined what Malfoy’s hair would feel like if he ran his hands through it, what Malfoy would do if Harry pushed him against a wall, what his lips would feel like on Harry’s, what sounds he would make while Harry sucked on his neck…

They stare at each other some more until a sound at the end of the corridor startles them. Malfoy looks over his shoulder and when his eyes land on Harry again, his expression is determined. He grabs Harry’s arm and drags him into the next broom closet.

It would have been so super easy for Horikoshi to write All Might as a typical, jaded, cynical hero who actually hates what he does and just wants to dump OFA off onto someone else so he can retire and be grumpy for the rest of his life, but instead he blessed us and made him as human as possible- someone who struggles with very real fears and doubts in himself, but also loves helping people, and he loves Izuku and his students, and is never hesitant to encourage them and offer them praise to help them become the best that they can possibly be and never belittles them.  He’s just such a positive force as a character and I am so so thankful like  

i really like how they never made steve question the amazons in that ‘what the fuck, you are women and you fight??? this is absurd’’ way like he never really cared they were women he was just ??? at what they were exactly, where they were and how they spoke english so well but in the exact same way he would’ve done if he found an isolated magic island full of dudes instead. the concept of powerful women wasn’t weird for him at all and im just so glad bc that is a guy diana could actually like and the audience can support. you just know in other hands cough *joss whedon* cough this would’ve gone the other way

Here’s the thing. I want Tony to apologize in IW. Not because he’s the only one in the wrong (far from it), but because that’s his character. Taking on the blame for what happens around him, for what he wishes he had done something to prevent, is what Tony does. And as satisfying as it would be to see Tony sipping his tea or blowing Steve off until he gets an apology, it’s just not the Tony we know. Tony who blames himself for Obadiah selling weapons, for Ultron, for AIM making human bombs because he was rude to a stranger at a party once. Taking responsibility for things that are not entirely his fault is such an integral part of his character I wouldn’t WANT to see it stripped away. (Not to mention if there’s an intergalactic threat, no way is Tony’s pride going to get in the way of going what has to be done,)

So here’s what I want instead. I want Tony to apologize and I want someone else, Steve or Sam or Clint or Wanda, to contradict him. I want Tony to hear that it wasn’t all his fault, that he made the best decisions he could under terrible circumstances. I want the NARRATIVE to contradict him for once and show us that, no matter how much Tony himself might believe it, he’s not to blame for every bad thing that happens around him. So don’t give me sassy unapologetic Tony. Give me a Tony who finally gets to hear that it’s not all his fault, and a movie that challenges the idea that Tony is to blame for everything he blames himself for.
