something with lilacs

Finally decided to try my hand at drawing some voltron and thought I’d get some practice in with a quick sketchy sketch of lancey lance.
From a scene that made my heart ache in one of my fave fics: Lilac Sweet by Star_Gazing_Knight

Goddamn Camp Camp time to dump a bunch of art for my AU. Something’s Strange at Camp Camp includes a lot more paranormal shit going on, a slug Nessie, 90% more Daniel, unicorns, ghosts, a werewolf, maybe Nuckelavee eventually, and other fun stuff(like breaking Daniel, that’ll be oodles of fun).

Myeh, too lazy to dump more info on the AU, guess I’ll save it for another post.

Malec fic: Watching Me Fall

Just a little Malec being sweet in Tokyo

Alec would have been perfectly happy with a burger and Magnus’s company in some greasy diner right in New York, but Magnus had said that he wanted to treat Alec, turning from a shelf where he’d been puttering around since Alec arrived for their date. He’d looked so good that Alec only managed to nod dumbly at whatever Magnus was saying. He registered sushi, vaguely, but certainly not sushi in Tokyo, and most definitely not sushi in Tokyo at a world-renowned sushi restaurant at The Palace Hotel.

All through dinner Magnus watches him eat with anticipation and delight, asking after each nigiri and sashimi and inari what Alec thinks and if he likes it. He does, but he feels weird allowing Magnus to spoil him like this. A burger really would have been fine.

After dinner, they move to a bar tucked into a dimmed corner of the stately hotel lobby, the decor inside all dark wood and deep leather and burgundy velvet. Magnus looks regal, like he belongs exactly here, surrounded on all sides by beautiful, elegant splendor. Alec, however, feels awkward. Like he’s too aware of himself, of the space his body takes up, of the mundanes drinking and talking around him. Magnus is telling a story, gesturing in graceful arcs with his drinking glass. Alec shifts to lean closer—it’s hard to hear him over the din—and his drink splashes onto the pristine velvet arm of his chair. He rubs at it, scowls at the stubborn spot, and loses track of Magnus’s story.

“Alexander, do you?”

Magnus has asked him the question at least once, Alec can tell by his tone. “Ah sorry, what did you—“ He rubs again at the stain, these chairs are so nice of course he spills something.

Magnus’s fingers gently still his hand. “I asked if you would like another drink, but.. I have a better idea.”

momentum

faster than fullness,
slower than madness,
the world melts in my hands

all my crystalline memories
swallow themselves,
hold their deaths
close to their chests

something lilac went missing from
my dreams
and now i am replacing it with
a million mint leaves

i leave
my old selves behind
constantly and without reason—
a viral impulse,
thoughtless
and impossible to undo

do not believe the body:
my silver pulse
repeatedly renews itself while

my golden breath,
in its arrogance,
reaches toward forever
reaches toward forever

Malec fic: Breathe

this is a soulmate AU if you squint. Takes place around 1x04

Love is different for Shadowhunters, or so Alec has always believed. Their relationships are too twisted up in duty, putting family and loyalty and the Clave first above all else. The happily ever after of mundane fairy tales was something Alec would never have, and even a simple story of finding love and companionship with someone who wanted him just for himself was impossible, he’d figured that out a long time ago. It was best to let go of all that completely, close himself off. Emotions make him weak, and he cannot afford to be weak.

Maybe love is different for Shadowhunters, but for Alec it’s even more so.

He’d felt something strange that night in Pandemonium: a pull, a connection. He’d been focused on the mission, on his job, unlike some people. And also unlike some people he did not go off chasing flights of fancy or let his emotions lead him instead of his logic. He was ignoring the sensation, whatever it was, but when he thinks back on it later, it’s still so vivid in his mind’s eye.

Well…a kind of revolution. That wasn’t really the word for what it was. There was the People’s Republic of Treacle Mine Road (Truth! Freedom! Justice! Reasonably priced love! And a hard-boiled egg!) that would live for all of a few hours, a strange candle that burned too briefly and died like a firework.

soulkidthecomic  asked:

Hey Nuri! I've noticed your backgrounds are pretty flawless. I try to do backgrounds like that with my copics but I get this weird sort of patchy look in the large areas. I can't seem to get everything to be "solid" the way your backgrounds are. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong! Any tips?

Hey! Preciate the kind words. I have a couple of reasons as to why your marker work is patchy. You’re either coloring too fast or too slow. With markers you have to move at a steady but consistent pace. This gives the marker time to absorb into the page evenly. If you move too fast your color distribution will be uneven. If you move too slow the marker will start to dry and you’ll end up with streaks. So it’s important to have some sort of plan of attack. 


One trick is to break things up into shapes. Think of your page as an ocean. Fill this ocean with as many islands as possible. For instance, if youre trying to color in a large area of sky, strategically place clouds or something against the sky. This will break up your larger shape into smaller shapes which will make your coloring process easier.


So that’s one trick. But what if you wanted to fill in a large area without any shapes? There’s another way: layering. This is how I do it:


I have 2 markers here. One for the first coat and another for the second.


Using lilac light I start by filling the page up and down with parallel marker strokes.


And then I repeat the process going across. Don’t worry about the strokes here. The goal here is to fill the entire page up so there’s no white peaking through. This base layer gives the second layer something to latch on to.


Using lilac I fill in the page as I normally would any other shape. Do this at least twice. You’ll end up with something like this:


The page is super saturated so at first it’ll appear kinda blotchy. Give it a moment to dry and it’ll look something like this.

Billionaire Matchmaker pt. 2

Bucky x f!reader

y/n: reader’s name.

Summary: Tony gets involved in the reader’s love life again.

Warning: I don’t think there’s anything to mention, just some flirting.

A/n: So just part two of my fic Billionaire Matchmaker. (Which you can read here) I wasn’t planning on making a part two, but now that I have I may make a part three and four. Idk, I’d love to hear what people think. :) 

Special thanks to @sharknadoslut for the suggestion of making a second part.

When Tony walked into the common room area at the Avengers compound he couldn’t help, but notice how Bucky was so focused on his phone. He hated how Bucky ignored him. Even after hooking him up with a hottie like y/n, and things still get weird and quiet when it’s just them.  "Who are ya talking to?“ Tony asked while spying over Bucky’ shoulder to read his text messages. "Ah… I see, our pretty little y/n… How’s that been going by the way?” Tony raised his eyebrows suggestively. Bucky continued to ignore Tony’s comments. “Come on!!! I want all the juicy details,” Tony whined. Bucky wasn’t budging, his eyes glued to the screen of his phone. Well this is going nowhere Tony thought to himself.

Taylor Swift and Karlie Kloss sent Gigi Hadid birthday flowers that look like wedding centerpieces
Friend goals or what?

Jen Juneau
April 24, 2017

When we think of #SquadGoals, we still think of Taylor Swift, Karlie Kloss, and basically everyone from the “Bad Blood” music video. This includes Gigi Hadid, who received flowers from Swift and Kloss for her 22nd birthday yesterday — and we have to say, where do we sign up to be part of this group!?

“I’m the luckiest!!!!! Thank yooouuuuuuu,” the model wrote on a photo that shows, from the left to right, bouquets from Karlie, Gigi’s dad Mohamed Hadid, and Taylor — the latter’s arrangement like something out of a lilac-scented dream (which we aren’t shocked by in the least).

Our favorite part is that each gift seems to lend itself to the personality of the giver — which are the BEST kinds of gifts.

On a related note: Considering close pal Taylor’s hit song “22,” we’d have been SHOCKED if it didn’t play at some point during the birthday girl’s festivities. And we’re happy to report we aren’t disappointed. As shared on Gigi’s sister Bella’s Instagram stories, the song definitely featured during the day.

Text Meme! #1 & 19 from Hijikata to Sannan about Itou. Original Verse. Thanks ^^

A Funny Text  and a Bad Idea Text from Hijikata to Sannan about Itou.
Edo Period.  (Ahhhh… sounds like fun…)


NOTE:  For context or to request a text/letter please see Imp’s Text Meme link on my home page. Most of the previous text/letters are linked there as well.


Sannan-san

Just got out of another meeting with Kondou-san and Itou-hime.

Oops sorry my thumb slipped - still getting used to these d*mn gadgets.

His Highness is complaining that his brother Princess Miki - oops did it again - doesn’t have a nice enough room.  He is particularly **fascinated** by the fact that Yukimura isn’t sharing a room.

I know we’re moving to hongwanji [corrected to:] hung won gee - f*ck who programmed the autocorrect on these f*cking things! - HONGWANJI you stupid phone - temple in two weeks but that may not be soon enough.

Could you cook up something that will make that lilac-wearing [Ed.’s Note: likely deleted to avoid dry comments about pots calling kettles purple] sleazy-eyed perfume-sniffer worry more about his stomach than room assignments for a few days?  The fantasy of him puking his delicate guts out into a bucket kept me from actually strangling him during the last fifteen minutes of our “discussion”.

Thanks.  Don’t forget to double-delete this message after you get it.  I don’t trust Souji not to take my suggestion literally.

Hijikata

PS  Yes I assume he has a way to read all our messages.

PPS Although if he *did* go ahead and make Itou “indisposed” then it would be the first time he’s followed one of my suggestions willingly in a while.

PPPS  He really p*sses me off. [Ed.’s Note:  the identity of which “he” may be deliberately unclear.]
