I’ve been reading a lot of classic rock (McLennon) fanfic and I’ve noticed that while you’re all very talented writers, a lot of you just don’t know much about LSD. So I thought I’d make a post with all the basics:
-LSD is also referred to as Acid (dropping acid, tripping acid) blotter, Jesus, microdots (dots), zen, California sunshine (cali), heavenly blue, tab, dragon, window pane, and paper mushrooms
-people who do a lot of LSD are called acid heads, acid freaks, cheer leaders, and day trippers
-LSD and PCP (also known as angel dust) have some similar effects, but are different drugs with different highs. Make sure you’re not actually describing PCP when writing acid trips!
-LSD is completely odorless and tasteless
-LSD is most commonly taken by soaking a little piece of paper in it and holding it under your tongue, and dropping it into a sugar cube and letting it melt on your tongue.
-it’s extremely dangerous to mix LSD and other drugs. But a lot of people mix it with xanax (it is dangerous tho. Keep that in mind while writing)
-LSD takes 30 minutes- an hour to completely set in
-it’s not like weed where the high only lasts like 2 hours. LSD lasts from 5(at the VERY least) to 12 hours and it’s a VERY intense high
-it takes another hour or two to come back down. This time isn’t very pleasant. Everything looks like it’s made of plastic and you don’t feel real. You’re not actively hallucinating but things feel off. It’s not uncommon to have an anxiety attack
-the first time you trip on LSD, the coming down part might take up to a few days. But by the second time it probably won’t
-not every trip is a good trip
-if you take LSD while unhappy or anxious. there’s an 80% chance you’ll have a bad trip. So it’s not realistic for your muse to drop acid when sad to cheer up
-bad trips are REALLY BAD good trips are REALLY GOOD
-you can have a good trip that turns bad. And you can have a bad trip that turns good (but it’s less likely)
-music sounds really fucking good on LSD
-you become really sensitive to touch and texture. Even a brush of fingertips on your arm is electrifying. I remember stroking my girlfriends hair and it felt like water running between my fingers and pooling in my hand.
-getting an orgasm might literally send you into another universe
-any hallucination you have will be a reaction to something around you. For example if you’re staring up at a starry sky you might feel yourself swimming through the sky. If you’re in a room with floral wallpaper flowers might start growing from your fingertips
-things get really distorted in size and multiply. If you’re looking at someone’s face one of their eyes might be growing while the other one shrinks. And they might have 4 heads instead of one
-hallucinations don’t follow any rules of the universe. Be as creative as you want to when writing them
-people tend retain their memories of hallucinations to an extent. It’s unlikely that you’d wake up after a trip with absolutely no memories of what happened
-It’s not safe to trip with no one sober around. You might think you can fly and jump off a building. Or walk into the middle of the road without realizing it. So if your muse only takes drugs responsibility keep this in mind
-people don’t usually move around too much while tripping.
-you lose all sense of time. I always think I was only high for a few minutes when in reality it was 7 hours. Some people feel like they were on it for years
-you can’t really hold a conversation when tripping. You really are in your own universe
-there are no physical affects of LSD. I’m sorry if your health class lied to you. It doesn’t make you physically sick at all
-it’s a cliche but yes, people often see god (tho I haven’t yet)
-tripping with someone you love can be very romantic, but in a weird way
-hallucinations are weird, but you don’t really notice that they’re weird until you’re not high anymore. Don’t write your muse as being surprised or confused about what they’re seeing
-bad trips might include things like feeling yourself die over and over again, your face shattering like glass, spiders crawling out of your mouth/all over your body, being on fire, seeing the devil, things like that.
-colors effect you a lot. They’re not necessarily brighter but they are …enhanced? It’s kinda hard to describe to people with no drug experience but colors have more meaning to you and you really notice them. If your muse is looking into their lovers brown eyes they’ll notice that brown
-I ate some ice cream while tripping once and I didn’t taste anything. I’m not sure if this is what it’s like for everyone but that’s my experience
That’s all I can think to tell you at the moment!! Thank you for reading I hope this helped. And if you have any questions don’t be afraid to ask me!
The top image is a reference to show what each set of silks looks like on it’s own.
The golden tail bangle is broken because it’s not semitransparent. It’s opaque, and won’t show what’s beneath it unlike all the other things.
Because of how I made these (where each full set is a layer), where the wing silks overlap the sash is a little funky. For best results when dressing a real dragon layer both colors of one piece over both colors of the other piece for better looking layering.
Colors may vary a bit from breed to breed.
These images are full size. Open them in a new tab/window for best viewing.
There are a thousand examples for why all of Sherlock S4 was fake, but here’s the only one I hold to:
The door to John’s flat was completely moved from its original location in MHR and HLV. There is no narrative purpose for this. The story doesn’t work better because the layout of the flat changed. This production design team is so meticulous in their sets and props, they would not just forget where this door is. They had a poster in the Pool scene in ASIB that was a shoutout to John’s blog post “The Speckled Blonde”, and we only saw it for three seconds. They had a painting made for TAB that was on screen for two seconds, just because they wanted a hand-painted sign of a man that looked like their director. They put every episode story into a stained-glass window in TAB that nobody noticed. They are *not* lazy. Any glaring set mistakes you see are meant to be seen.
John’s flat is different because whatever POV we’re in has not seen John’s flat, except for maybe in pictures. So, who would that be?
Sherlock. He’s never gone to John’s flat. He’s still in his mind palace. It’s EMP, starting at his gunshot wound or at the “You’d still have a future, with Mary”/“Anderson, here’s what happened” mind palace moment in The Empty Hearse.
Critics and fans rate this series at an all-time low, because we’re told to accept a bunch of implausible actions as truth.
If you feel that simply placing your crystals around a piece of Selenite isn’t powerful enough to cleanse them, try placing a single terminated (preferably Clear Quartz) point between them, pointing away from the Selenite, to direct the flow of energy from the Selenite to the crystal to be cleansed. This will create a laser-like field of stronger energy in the direction of the crystals.
This method was created with 3 large crystals for the sake of aesthetics and photography. You can absolute recreate the setup with small crystals if that’s what you have available!
I have a feeling that Dan Wattpad deliberately asked the larry question so Louis would have to deny it (because obviously, he is in the closet). It is a known fact that larries are a major support to Louis and since they are hell bent on sabotaging Louis, they want to alienate him from us. Well GUESS WHAT BITCH, WE AIN’T LEAVING!!!
To start off, I know photoshop seems all over the place! I remember when I first started using it, I had absolutely no idea what the heck I was doing, so don’t feel bad if thats where you are at too! Also, you will get the hang of it! After using Photoshop for a little bit, things start to come naturally! THIS WILL BE A VERY LENGTHY TUTORIAL. PART ONE WILL BE WRITTEN TIPS, AND THE SECOND PART WILL JUST BE IMAGES GUIDING YOU THROUGH THE PROGRAM.
a/n: I’m honestly so nervous because it’s been literally millennia since I last posted something like this…. I hope you guys like it ;) this is heavily based off snapchat…. and…. I’m sorry if it’s too messy jfc I had to stop multiple times
i thought since we are all living online maybe you would be interested about the internet’s vocabulary in France! as usual, n : noun, v : verb, adj : adjective ; m : masculine, f : feminine (about the first word if there are several).
- tablet : tablette (f) / keyboard : clavier (m) / battery : batterie (f) (also drums) / key : touche (f) / arrow : flèche (f) / space bar : barre d’espace (f) / mouse : souris (f) (also the word for the rodent)
- flash drive : clé USB (f) / hard drive : disque dur (m) / wire : câble (m) / input device : périphérique (m) / USB port : port USB (m) / on/off switch : bouton de marche/arrêt
- wifi : wifi (m) “wee-fee” / service : réseau (m), ex : je n’ai pas de réseau, je ne capte pas/plus
- hosting platform : plateforme d’hébergement (f), hébergeur (m) / password : mot de passe (m) / typo : faute de frappe (f) (“mistake of strike”) / virus : virus (m) / to lag : ramer, v/“ça rame” / to edit : modifier, v / to scroll : faire défiler, v (we also use scroll)
:0 can you do a tutorial for this edit? Mostly the word search part! Also thanks so much for making such awesome stuff Ily and ur edits /post/129348976012/ikon
How to make this gfx
Ok first you need to know that english is not my first language and i’m really
really really bad at explaining things also this is my first time making a tutorial but i’ll try my best so pls bear with me. This is the final result.
Your art is sooo good, I love your style and the way you color, and your lines are so clean and smooth. Do you have some tips or suggestions for who's starting with digital.
Thank you so much! I’m really happy that you like my art. :D I’m going to write this post for complete newbies, but I actually have some specific advice for you near the end. I hope you’ll bear with me!
Hello! I just wanted to tell you how much I love your IW Steve! I have it saved as my desktop and every time I tab through my open windows (I have two screens) I see him and die a little at how gorgeous it is. Thank you for your fandom contributions - they're bringing a lot of happiness to others. <3
Hi anon ^^
Thank you so much for the great feedback about my art and for taking the time to send me this very kind message ♥ Glad you enjoyed Steve in his Infinity War suit! ^^
I LOVE his new suit and his beard and I really hope that Hot Toys is going to release a version of Steve like this!
(Left:the artwork I posted yesterday. Right: the updated version after seeing the Infinity War poster at Ryan Meinerding’s Tweeter. More colors and I added some pieces of fabric on the chest)
Thank you for your fandom contributions - they’re bringing a lot of happiness to others. <3
It’s an amazing compliment! Thanks again! :D Now I wish I could draw Natasha but all I can see on the concept art from Marvel is her face! I don’t even know what she’s wearing in the movie so I have to wait a bit ^^;;)
TW: Mentions of self loathing, cursing?? I guess Word Count: 7712 Genre: Fluff Prompt: dontforgettosmile (AO3)
Summary: It’s been a long time since Dan last dated someone. Eight years, to be exact. Phil offers that they go on a date, to save each other from the dreadful feeling of being alone. But no homo though.
hey pals so @cruvcio wanted to know how I made the doodle gifs in this post so I thought id make a little tutorial (pls bear with me this is my first time making a tutorial✨)
- okay so to start, I use photoshop (you can find great free download links at @yeahps, @itsphotoshop, or @completeresources ) so you want to open that up with your picture or blank canvas or whatever you want to doodle on
- next you want to go to your timeline (if you can’t see it, go to the tab windows –>timeline and make sure its ticked), click create frame animation, and then create 3 or 4 frames (the number depends on how much movement you want between doodles)
- next you want to create some new layers and you want the same number of layers as the number of frames you created
- this is the fun part! select your first layer and doodle whatever you want (you can experiment with brushes and colours and all that fun stuff) and then once you’re done, select you second layer.
- say you’re just doing little squiggly lines like the header on this, draw the lines on the second layer slightly to the left of the ones on your first layer. then once you’ve done that repeat for third layer and so on. in the end, with all your layers selected it might look a bit mad like this:
… but that’s fab
- next you want to make sure that your frames and layers match up, so when you click on the first frame, only the eye next to your first doodle layer is showing, etc. etc. for all your frames/layers (it makes more sense if you just look at the screen cap, i’m terrible at explaining)
- on the timeline bar, choose how many seconds you want each frame to be showing for (I used 0.2s for this, but I normally use anywhere between 0.05 and 0.3) and make sure that its showing forever (so the gif doesn’t stop)
- go to file –> save for web, and wham kablam you’re done!
I hope this was helpful, pls like/reblog if it was, and if you have any more questions just hmu 💛
