If you could choose:

Would rather see Victor and Yuuri pair-skating?

Or see Victor and Yuuri openly kiss with nothing to hide it and no way to interpret it as something else?

You can only choose one.

Happy Valentine's Day!❤️ Wishing you all a lovely day aaand I hope y'all enjoy these hotass gifs😏

Art Tips/Hacks except FOR ONCE THEY ACTUALLY WORK?!

This is some stuff I’ve picked up in the last seven-eight months and it’s actually incredibly useful.

1. Do not be afraid to use guidelines/perspective lines. They’re very helpful when drawing faces or landscapes, and unless you know the basics of portraiture or perspective inside and out your artwork could look a little off. Nobody is going to criticise you for using them to get your proportions right. You’re free to use guidelines until you’re certain you’re comfortable without them (even then, you should probably still use them). 

2. You can mix paint on ANYTHING. Seriously. Trust me on this one. You don’t need to go out and buy a fancy expensive palette which you’re just going to get dirty anyway. Use almost anything you have to hold paint - scrap paper, cardboard, plastic containers, paper plates, etc, etc. Egg boxes are the best in my opinion. There is virtually no point in spending money on a palette as most of them are ridiculously overpriced - yes, sometimes it can help, but as long as something is strong enough to hold the paint and it’s easily disposable, you can use anything and everything you can get your hands on (and anyway, scraping acrylic off a palette is an absolute nightmare).

3. I’ve said this time and time again but I need to save everyone from forgetting this like I did: PLEASE, GOD, DO NOT WORK SMALL SCALE. If you’re trying to draw something with small details, WHY, OH WHY would you squish it into the corner of the page?! Do not strain your hands or your eyes by making tiny illustrations. You can use as much space as you need. Use a third of the page, half the page - Hell, use the entire page if you want to! You’ll find that you can get much more detail in if you work on a larger scale. 

4. References will need to become your best friend. Please don’t try to wing it and have it come out wrong if you’re unsure of how to draw it when you could turn to your friend the Internet and let her help you? LET THE INTERNET HELP YOU, SHE KNOWS WHAT SHE’S DOING. I’ve found that Pinterest is the best place to find drawing references, and there are a lot of helpful guides for drawing and colouring as well. 

Speaking of references, don’t want to print out the photo or have to flip between your entertainment and the picture in different windows? Make the reference picture your wallpaper so you can just minimise the tab. For example, here is mine:

Very helpful.

Divine Intervention

Harry turned on his heel and started walking toward the east side of the building. His boot scraped across the loose gravel littering the concrete floor and cut through the quiet that had descended all around them.  He called over his shoulder, “I’m here to check the foundation.”

Louis was next to him then, warm body emanating a nearly impossible heat in the biting cold.  Harry glanced at him and could see a pale pink blush cresting his high cheekbones.  “Foundation?”  

God, his voice was so sexy.  Coming out of that pretty pink mouth of his…tiny sharp teeth and a wet, lush tongue…Harry shook his head, trying to stay focused, on task.

Louis cleared his throat next to him.  Harry realized they’d reached the far end of the building and were standing near the elevator bank — or the would be elevator bank.  It was just a shell right now.  A hollowed out promise of what was to come.  Harry shuddered as he looked down the inky black tunnel.  A sick twisting feeling rippled through his stomach.

“Foundation?”   The man asked again, cutting through Harry’s chilled reverie.

Harry needs a little help moving on.

I really, truly hate when people conflate the terms GNC and ‘Nonbinary’ (or just don’t know what GNC means at all), so here you go:

GNC (Gender Non-Conforming): Not identifying with/actively practicing the societal gender roles assigned to your sex
Ex. Males who wear makeup and skirts (still men), females who don’t shave and cut their hair short (still women).

‘Nonbinary’: Identifying out of the “gender binary”
I.E. Trying to claim that they are neither men or women.

They. Do. Not. Mean. The. Same. Thing.

please stop….. tagging my jewish religious poetry…….. as ‘#christianity’………….. please ??? i specifically have tagged my religious poetry as ‘#jewish poetry’ for a reason, my religious poetry has Nothing to do with christianity and i am very tired of my judaism being ignored just because it’s the norm.

if you are christian, you are definitely allowed to like and even identify with my poetry!! in fact, nothing would make me happier, especially since we share part of the same bible. please don’t think i’m trying to exclude you from anything, you are 100% allowed to interact with me & my work.

but don’t erase my judaism. my judaism and my art are inextricably entwined, most importantly when it comes to my religious poems.

there’s something so intriguing to me about seeing lit windows at night. like seeing a light in a window at like 3am is just so Interesting to me like it just makes me wonder who’s in there and what’s their story and why are they awake, what kind of life do they lead etc. like even when im watching tv i find myself looking at the windows in buildings and being like wow there are millions of other different characters doing different things at this exact moment. idk.
