“So?” Stiles sputters, kicking his shoes into the corner and locking the front door behind him. He’d whipped out his phone the second he’d pulled up to the house, and miracle among miracles, Scott actually answered. Of course, he’s not so pleased about that now. “My dad thinks Derek and I are dating, Scott. Did you miss that part?”
How does Isak know Even is drunk? Well, the thing with drunk!Even is that he gets happy and clingy. Don’t get him wrong, Isak is not complaining. Where someone might think he’d find that annoying, he finds the constant need of contact, the flushed cheeks and the ruffled hair of his boyfriend were nothing but adorable.
Even doesn’t drink often, which is why, when he does, he gets drunk pretty quickly. He usually just nurses one or two beers over the timespan of the party but on some occasions he allows himself some more drinks.
If it is one of those rare nights, a few things are very likely to happen:
Even exclaiming “Halla!” even though they stood beside each other the whole time with a crinkly smile that makes Isak’s mouth widen into a grin in
return. With a much softer and lower voice Isak responds, “Halla,
baby.” which earns him nose nuzzles when Even leans in. Isak pecks his
lips once and then assesses his boy and asks quietly “You ok?” while he bumps their noses once more. Even nods enthusiastically.
Even slumping down close to Isak on a couch (or rather, at least half on him) or scooting closer and closer until he has a leg over or under him before he circles both his long arms around Isak’s middle, settles his head down against his shoulder and sighs contentedly.
asleep curled beside (or on top of) Isak, who strokes his arms up and down or
scratches his head or just has an arm around him.
with Eva, Mags, Eskild, Vilde, Ricardo (who even was that again? A friend of
Eskilds? Doesn’t matter tho, he’ll be rambling) about how much he loves Isak. (Drunk Eva and or Eskild always agree excitedly and well a lot of gushing happens until Even goes off to find Isak bc he misses him).
all the boys repeatedly and telling them how
awesome they are. Mahdi and Jonas always gently shove him in the direction of either Isak or Mags when this happens (which both of them gladly take on, Isak not at all jealous that the attention wasn’t on him for a minute. Not at all. Ok? He isn’t. Stop, he really isn’t jeez. But that’s enough Mags, give him back already).
everyone for breakfast at their place for the next morning and promising a variety of pancakes, fruitsalat, waffles (cue fingerguns at Mahdi), scrambled eggs etc.
Even allwoing Mags to crash at theirs (which Isak revoks instantly).
Isak or attacking him with cheek kisses out of the blue even though they were
in a conversation with someone else.
Isak he loves him a good 20 times in an hour and dramatically pouts when Isak
doesn’t respond with i love you, too in
an instant. (which he really always does but Even is an impatient fucker when drunk).
Even poking into Sana’s dimples when she grinned at something sassy Isak says at which both bio buds roll their eyes but can’t really surpress a smirk.
(Thir friends don’t find the cuddling out of the ordinairy since A) they have seen Even drunk before and B) drunk!isak is honestly way worse with the PDA bc drunk!isak is just one hell of a horny guy.)
Take a step back and think. You are wonderful just the way you are, why do you have to be mean to others just to compensate for your lack of self-esteem? You care so much, I know that. But you have to let the others know that as well. You don't need to prove yourself to anyone. You're a hidden gem, aries and let someone find you instead of wrecking the surprise for them. You are loved and you know exactly how to have fun so keep reminding yourself that you are worthy of the adventure your life has to offer.
Get out of your comfort zone and stop caring about what people think. I know that you're the best at giving advice but I think it's about time that someone takes care of you. You are not those stereotypes people try to label you with. You are candid. Don't forget your dreams and keep focusing on how to get there. Be social, let yourself be loved and remember that you can always learn from anyone. You're not alone and people can understand, if you let them in. Take in the sun, try something new and keep in mind the fact that you can live through anything. You represent grace. You are going to be okay.
You have so many interesting things to say and don't let anyone ever shush you. You are a deep thinker, an innovator. Gemini, I know your mind is on overdrive but take a moment to slow down, on your terms. But after that, do as much as you can because you are capable of so much. Be sure of your opinions (stick to them!) and keep looking forward, you moment will come too. Discover yourself, your surroundings and let yourself be immune to all that is superficial. We all know you are authentic so why keep up the mask? We'll love you anyway and perhaps even more. You are going to be okay.
You spread your love so much that at the end of the day, you have none left for yourself. So, when you're down, let yourself be nurtured as much you would nurture someone else. Your voice may be soft but every word has so much meaning. You are so kind, genuinely thoughtful and you are so rare. Keep your purity, don't let corruptions soak in your veins or crawl on your skin. Sometimes, it can be good just to stop caring and to live at the moment. The world's problems are not your responsibility. You are free. Always. You are going to be okay.
Keep being yourself, I like that. But remember, people's opinion about you does not impact your self-worth. You are special and you are whole just by yourself. It's okay to lose your cool sometimes and become humble and silly, it will feel refreshing I promise. You are so brave and one of kind. Keep standing up for what you believe in and never let anyone extinguish your fire. Go get what you want and keep fierce. You are going to be okay.
You are so on top of everything and I admire you for that. I know that things are overwhelming right now but you have to realize that you are powerless to somethings. Live and let live. You are so talented, unique, sensitive, intellectual and grounded, why are you so hard on yourself? You are your very own prized position. Be proud of yourself and keep working hard, it's going to bring you places. Keep being kind and considerate. The fear you feel is only in your head and you hold power over it. You are going to be okay.
I cannot even begin to describe how wonderful you are, so stop trying to please so hard! The people who are truly good for you are the ones you will not compromise yourself for. You are aloud to be unhappy with something and voice your opinion about it. Discover your talents and expose them to the world. Sing, dance, laugh and don't let anyone rain on your parade. You are more than meets the eye libra. You are a force to be reckoned with. You are going to be okay.
Oh boy, there are so many things I want to tell you. I'll start by saying that people care about you as much as you care about them so stop pushing them away. When you're in the dark, let your hand be held. You know you are different but you forget that it's a good thing. You are so loyal but don't be with your demons. You are not who has hurt you so shake that thought out of your head. I love how you are able to strive even when your heart is shattered. Remember what your priorities are and make sure to include yourself. You are going to be okay.
The world is your oyster so never limit yourself to only what is known. Be daring, keep being honest and don't let yourself taken over by things that are simply not worth your time. Be patient and the good things will come. Cherish your freedom and keep that laugh of yours just as loud. Remember your one liners and how many faces you have made smile. Do whatever you want your heart desires and stay candid. You are going to be okay.
You have so many plans and you know exactly how to make them happen. No matter what your achievements are, you will always be successful. Take a minute to look at the beautiful world around you. Show them they were wrong! You are so much more than what they tell you to be. Keep asking questions, competing but keep your mind open. You know that you have an emotional side to yourself and you will feel at piece once you acknowledge it. You are devoted but let someone but just as kind towards you. You are going to be okay.
Keep being weird and not caring about the differences that set you apart from the rest. Your brain holds so much knowledge and wisdom, don't let your pride get in the way of it. You can revolutionize, change the world, modify the norms. You are so peculiar and I know that it's hard to have your interest but I can promise you that if you look at everything without a filter, you will feel at peace. Be the exception to everything. You will be okay.
Always follow your gut. Your thoughts speak nothing but the truth so never put them aside. You are so special already, you don't need to change to fit in. You naturally do. You are an old soul, the one who got away, the one who will take you home. Don't let yourself get taken avantage of, trust yourself and never stop dreaming. Keep doodling and listening. Remember how strong you are, that behind that sweetness hides a layer of tar that you need to discover on your own. You are multi-dimensional. You are going to be okay.
hey viria i was just wondering..... maybe you might've answered this before.... but how did sasha and you first meet and got into, you know, love? im really curious (i've never fallen in love before!!) and what was your experience like? im sorry if it's too personal, but.... you were the reason i started tumblr, because i wanted to reblog your arts! i feel so happy for you!
Thank you! It’s okay, I think..I might not get too personal, but I can describe it overall:”)
So he joined our last year of the university. At first I didn’t really notice him at all? I was fairly shy, because I was surrounded with people I don’t know well enough since my group of people all joined the specialist course, while I was taking masters.
Sasha said once we were in relationship that he thought I was too cool, like i had that certain circle of people and uh. out of his league.
So. I was shy, as I said. and when I’m shy I’m pretty quiet. At the beginning of the year I was always alone, or went off to see Tanya, or listened to the music because I wasn’t sure how to approach people. Then I kinda started to open up but still was keeping on a quiet side. It’s probably around October that Sasha started kindly teasing me? He asked a lot why I was sad, when I wasn’t, I always said it was just my neutral face. SO it all kinda started with teasing:”D
We all together (as a class) started to talk and laugh more, Sasha and me too. I am generally even more shy around guys, so at first I still couldn’t quite uh talk the way I can now. But with time we started to talk a bit more, and i wasn’t as nervous to be on my own with him (I always worried we wont be able to talk and there will be that awkward silence). He helped a lot, kinda cheered on me, I think we at some point started to flirt and one of my classmates said we have an interesting communication. Once he got sick, and I was waiting for my parents in the uni, everyone left, and Sasha kept me company. It was so easy to talk?? I think that’s kind of when it started to shift for me.
Then parents came, and my mother said that there’s a big cold (as a flu) going around, involving in people dying, and I started to worry about Sasha a lot, because he caughed very badly when we parted. So I got all my courage and wrote him to go to the doctor if he feels very bad and take care, stuff like that.
About after that we started to talk in the evenings constantly, it was like a tradition. So we talked a LOT. Eventually he got the courage to ask me out on a concert? I think the concert was just a way to do it fairly subtle:D
We went out, I was very nervous getting ready, but when I got there I was okay, and Sasha was the one who seemed to be nervous this time:”D Still, it went out great, the concert SUCKED, but we had something to talk about on the way back home and I felt so lifted afterwards! So we started to go and see each other more and more, but we still kept it on a modest side? Like we said goodbuy and gave each other awkward high fives for A WHILE. We both are shy potatoes. But it was still perfect:”)
Then one time Sasha asked me out to go ice skating, because I love it, even though he can’t skate. So we went there, I asked Sasha to trust me and I wanted to ride with him like I did with my cousin and other friends, but I didn’t realize Sasha is bigger than those girls, and heavier. And so I. Uh. I dropped him by accident. he felt badly and didn’t skate after that, because he hit his elbow quite bad. Kept saying it’s okay, go and skate without me, you love it, etc. But I couldn’t because I was so worried and I felt so guilty? We left soon enough, and were just walking and went to the cafe where I has seen his arm, and it was getting very bruised and fairly swollen. And it’s his right arm and for an artist it’s not the best thing to injure.
I couldn’t stop blaming myself even though Sasha kept saying it wasn’t my fault (tho I think it kind of was), so I kept asking him how he feels, got him the medicine against swelling, and then once we parted, we still talked in the evening, and I didn’t want Sasha’s arm to hurt so I FINALLY had my reason to call him. and then we talked on the phone for the next three hours and I honestly don’t even remember much of that anymore.
Sasha later said it was when he seriously fell in love. so. Tadaa! that’s kind of it! After that it’s more personal and more domestic, so! Sorry it’s so long, but you asked for it:D
I want to contribute: I like the idea because Bee is definitely the good listener type, he would listen for hours on Knock Out chatter on and just listening his every word, smitten by the fact how KO can just talk about everything and anything and be excited all the time and be comfortable talking about even the silliest stuff
You’re certainly not the only one. September and Saturday were going stir-crazy over the past week because they wanted to see their new house so much. It’s time to reveal the result to them!
So. I know it has taken a while. But I finally finished building the Shoebox House for you two.
Let’s see if you like it…
You like it? I’m glad to hear that.
Well, let’s look at the details a little.
I chose a beach or holiday theme for the house. So for the inside of the lid, I printed out a beach wallpaper, added some stamps for a holiday flair, and put a miniature beach chair in front of it. The ladder gives access to the second floor. I leaned it against the lid instead of attaching it against the floor inside so it wouldn’t obstruct the rooms.
If we travel together more, maybe we can add more stamps to this lid.
The first floor has a little table made of wood with two yarn spool chairs, a shell to lounge around in, and several shelves with decorations. Pencil nubs and a tiny notepad give September and Saturday the chance to write memos.
For the wall decoration, I chose another stamp with a maritime theme, two buttons, dried flowers with deco tape, a self-made basket and a skeleton picture.
I took into account that September prefers self-built and scavenged things, while Saturday doesn’t mind the occasional miniature object, so I added both to the house.
Then there’s the upper room, Saturday and September’s bedroom. The beds are still sponges, but I sewed a new white mattress cover and two pillows and altered the blankets a little. On the bedside table is the part of a wristwatch that fell irreparably off its wristband, which the small ones can now use as a clock. There’s also a pin depicting Papyrus, because September thinks he’s cool.
I printed out some small books for September and Saturday so they can have an easier time reading. For September, I folded origami boxes to use as bookshelves and added a tiny shell and a white chess pawn as decorations on top. Saturday’s shelf is made of cardboard and has a black pawn and a tiny flowerpot next to their magazines.
I’m sure it will be very exciting to explore the house…
On the Lucas Baker picture how did you make the shed looking lettering on his jacket? It looks good and I'd like to be able to try it
Thanks anon! It’s an easy trick and there are many ways of achieving that grunge effect. I use Photoshop but I’m sure there are ways to apply this technique in other programs as well.
You’ll need two layers: a transparent design/text on top of a solid background color. We will erase parts of the design instead of adding grunge to the whole pic. This way the design will work even if you change its color or the color of the bg. Here’s Cappy, let’s fuck him up!
The first way of doing this is by finding a good textured, spongy brush. I usually use the Natural Sponge from @kyletwebster‘s Megapack. Set your brush mode to “clear” on the top toolbar. This will turn it into an eraser!
Now just go ham on the drawing you’re grunging up! The more randomly you erase, the better! You can switch brushes to vary shapes and edges. Don’t forget to switch up brush sizes to add smaller scratches too! Tadaa!
If you think you’re not very good at making things look random, there’s a second way of doing this. Textures are your friends! I usually get them from textures.com. As a first step, turn your texture black and white (Shift+Ctrl+U) and play with the levels (Ctrl+L) until it’s mostly white with some black spots.
Then select the black pixels with the Magic Wand tool (make sure that “contiguous” is turned off on the top bar so your tool selects all the black pixels on your canvas). Copy all the selected pixels and paste them on a new transparent layer over your design. Feel free to move the texture around, resize it if it looks better. Now all you have to do is select the grunge you just added (by Ctrl+left clicking on its layer in your Layers window) and press Delete while standing on your design layer. This way only the selected pixels will be erased from your design.
After this, you can delete the grunge layer and enjoy your nastied-up design or do another round of what you just did to destroy it even more. If you want smaller scratches in it, switch to brush and touch it up with the first technique I described.
For Lucas’ logo, I used the brush only. I like to be able to control where the damage happens :) Hope this helped!
Tada! Iată proiectul meu de colaborare cu @oanamihaelaphotography, o fotografă născută și crescută în Constanța.
Cu câteva luni în urmă Mint și Oana s-au decis să colaboreze . Din moment ce Seb nu a mai fost în orașul său natal de câțiva ani buni, ne-am gândit să îl aducem acasă pentru o vizită într-o formă doodle, reprezentând un cadou pentru ziua lui de naștere. Am fost de acord ca desenele mele să apară peste fotografiile ei, deoarece acest lucru ne-ar oferi libertatea și flexibilitatea de care orice artist are nevoie pentru a se desfășura în voie.
La multi ani, Seb! Sperăm că acest cadou te va aduce mai aproape de locurile natale. ❤

From Constanta, with love (1/9)
Tadaa! Here is my collaborative project with @oanamihaelaphotography, a Constanta-based photographer.
A couple of months ago, Oana reached out and asked if I would be interested in a collaboration. Since Seb hasn’t been back to his hometown for a while, we thought we would ‘bring him back home’ for a visit in doodle form as a birthday present. We agreed on my doodles drawn over her photos because this would give us freedom and flexibility as artists to do our own thing 😊
Happy Birthday, Seb! We hope you enjoy this present ❤️
