tbh some of these posts are kinda weird

okay so since the carmilla fandom is basically dead / going into hibernation until the movie i figured i’d make a fic rec post just for fun (and then go drown myself in riverdale), going from my favourites to decent ones:

white blank page - angsty college sports au and the dopest thing ever

exposure - slow burn and internal suffering and emotions it is gorgeous, college au again but carmilla does photography

i’ll keep you safe if you keep me wild - bounty hunter carmilla moves to the country and an adorable love story 

pens - one shot (which is unusual bc i normally hate them) but its a subway strangers kinda thing

chasing ghosts - post military laura comes back to hometown, spoiler carmilla has a daughter shit gets real fluffy tbh but there’s also some angst

clockwork - i honestly don’t remember this one that well but apparently i liked it so heres a flower shop au 

pandemic - weird infection dystopian thriller au thing but holy shit the plot twist in this one is wild, also i cried at the end soooooo (happy tears i think)

this distant image of our tiny world - space au in a mars colony, hear me out, holy shit the setting is so well described and you can imagine this all so well its beautiful

the minister’s daughter - lgbt christian community, it’s acc quite sweet

absolution - short hollence-hollstein cheat fic, it’s a bit of a guilty pleasure

your mom called, you left your game at home - softball rivals and mucho angst turned hate sex??? turned dating (I’m spotting a trend here)

music to my ears - high school band and orchestra au don’t judge it’s cute alright

the road to home - road trip au with a v slow romance but hey ho its a good one

where your treasure is, there will your heart be also - fluffy but mostly plot based hogwarts au yet i ended up enjoying it v much so give it a go

the triwizard tournament - another sappy and soft but more hollstein centric hogwarts au why not

on our last leg - olympic running au, a v v v long one shot i believe

this just can’t be summer love - pretty writing, hawaii romance one shot

four walls - like a fucking action novel holy shit y’all

strangers - incomplete fwb story but damn i wish there was more

(of all persisting stars) - their first time from both povs 

the mirror between us - an okay one shot but i loved the twist

[also not with haste, back to back, god knows it’s not what we would choose to do, she smelled like lilacs, no space among the clouds, maybe the spark between us can light my cigarette, touched by stars, just stay with me, meet me halfway to your heart, gossip column, the sun dont set if we keep heading west]

okay I’m done (for now) (or maybe not wow this takes a long time)

anonymous asked:

how do you draw tears?

Hi, Anon! I’ll do my best to walk you through my thought process. 

(This post got kinda long, so if you’re not up for reading, here are kawacy’s process breakdown and JaneMere’s Water Drops Tutorial o/)

Tears as seen in real life are…pretty uninteresting, tbh so to make them look more feel-inducing than reality, it helps to exaggerate, especially when it comes to size and contrast

Here are some things I consider when sketching:

I like to keep it to two trickles per eye flowing from the corners to, but by no means is that a rule. To give tears a sense of weight, I draw them as thin streams that gather into large droplets depending on where gravity is taking them. 

You might want to push the size even further so that they’re more visible at a distance. Context and mood is also an important thing to consider; as a general guideline, thinner lines imply delicacy while gushing waterfalls are usually more comical. Feel free to let anime/cartoons/comics (etc etc) be your guide, since they can go really heavy on the exaggeration for a wider range of expression. Have some Mako Mankanshoku tears from Kill la Kill as an example!

Awww :’D
I mean
Awww D’: 

Anyways, once I have my sketch down, I go ahead and block them out. I’m using a white tinted with blue for color contrast from the warm colors of the skin, but it doesn’t matter that much if you lower the opacity as much as I have. In any case, I don’t want to use my whitest white yet since I’m saving that for shiny highlights.

I then duplicate my block-in, darken the layer, then erase from inside the shapes I made. This is my “line art” of sorts.

Time to shade! Since tears are essentially water, I treat them like gemstones/translucent objects. Similar to shiny materials like metal, there’s a high-contrast transition between light and shadow in both edges and value, but with transparent objects, light passes through them, bounces around, and “gathers” on the side opposite of the surface that’s receiving the light, like so: 

Not the most amazing rendering in the world, but I hope it gets my point across x’D

Moving on!

To compensate the loss of detail from zooming out, I use black to amp up the contrast (doubly important since I’m using a pale-skinned person in my example). If that’s too harsh for you, feel free to play around with colors and opacity. (Again with the whole emotional context thing. Adapt to the situation!) You can even use a soft brush or put the shading through a blur filter, but I usually choose to keep the edges hard because again, contrast.

Now for the fun part: highlights! Shine bright like a diamond : DDD

Amping up the contrast some more by breaking out the whites! I suppose you could stop here, but this still isn’t shiny enough for me yet, >:3c

I go over the edges of the tears with white to punctuate how ridiculously shiny they are. I also like to throw in some bright reds/oranges reflecting off the droplets to imply healthy, glowing skin as well as a dash of a cooler color for general environmental lighting. I also added some cast shadows to the tears. Not terribly dark, since light passes through the tears as opposed to being blocked out.

Again, while I am basing my decisions off real-life principles, a lot of these choices are highly stylistic. Whether you’re drawing small, have time constraints or you’re just plain lazy, you can always pick and choose! This is just my current approach, so while you’re free to try out my workflow if you literally have no idea what you’re doing, I do encourage you to experiment to see what appeals you personally.

Hope this helps! Honestly, I’m quite flattered that anyone would ask me how I draw things :’D
If anyone does end up using this guide, poke me and show me what you’ve come up with; I’d love to see :D

Talent swap cuz i can

Fuyuhiko is prince, Sonia is mafia, Mahiru is mechanic, Kazuichi is photographer, Ibuki is traditional dancer and Hiyoko is musician

There are some drawings i don’t really know if i should post or not tbh and this is one of them. I just hope i won’t delete it in my sleep (trust me, it has happened a few times already)

okay well I feel kinda weird even doing this so I’m not gonna make one of those long posts about it, some of you who have been following me for a while have probably seen older stuff about the crap with my family and my dad in particular, but this post explains the latest developments. 

at an anon’s suggestion, I’ll share my paypal: pacurarut13@gmail.com. at this point I don’t even know where I’ll be by the end of the month, stuck at home or in the netherlands, with my dad expecting me to change everything about who I am to please him. wherever I’ll be, I’ll try to get a job asap and start saving up so I can get away from all of this, but naturally any bit of help would be appreciated. so if you’re feeling charitable and feel like helping out, you’ll have my eternal gratitude

youtube

All right, guys, confession time

I told myself I would remain completely unbiased to Ross Lynch by not allowing myself to research or watch/see anything he did prior to My Friend Dahmer, but if I’m going to be honest, I am a liar and I live for spoilers, so I obviously went snooping around (just a little!) With no trailer or anticipated release date, I don’t really know what else to do, sooooooo…

For anyone else completely oblivious to who Ross Lynch is or anything he’s ever done (like I was), this video is one of his more recent (almost exactly a year ago - October 2015) things released with his family group R5 (personal note: I won’t lie to you guys, I usually avoid family-based bands like the plague, they usually remind me of the Brady Bunch, tbh, and I can’t take them seriously because I detest all 4 of my siblings, so it’s beyond my realm of understanding, BUT ANYWAY) It IS a little dark, kinda weird and western-y, but it’s certainly post-Disney.

Yeah, I watched some other videos of theirs/his and heard a few *cough - this whole album (Idk who I am anymore) - cough* other songs, but this one definitely made the biggest impression on me. There’s underage drinking (Ross will be 21 in December - research, lol), some (demon?) possession, there’s even a tiny itty bitty amount of blood in a quick random shot of a sink, and finally, there’s Ross’s exposed chest (which, I’d be willing to bet, contains a heart. Bad joke. Ha.) Sure, it’s still pop rock, but we can’t get much much more Dahmer without a little murder, metal, mall antics, masturbation, and of course, a male (love?? that can’t be word I’m looking for…) interest. In other words, my body is ready for My Friend Dahmer and I’m too excited to see Ross Lynch play him.

Long ranty post about someone I used to really like

I’m honestly so iffy about Taylor Nicole Dean now bc of her association with Brian and ever since I got so much shit for saying I had concerns about that and her recent pet purchases on social media like I mean I apologized profusely but 1st of all she told me I shouldn’t have made that public bc she got a lot of hate and I should’ve privately messaged her….she got maybe TWO other people that simply agreed with me and weren’t rude to her at all? Also she does not check her private messages so like it was a shock she even saw the public one tbh and 2nd it’s very clear she has no intentions of looking into why bhb reptiles is just bad like really really bad and as an animal educator she shouldn’t be supporting people like that just for fame but I don’t know that’s just me😕 like I don’t know I’ve still been watching her videos just bc I was a REALLY big fan of hers but I just don’t know if I like her anymore? I know I said she handled the Instagram feud really well but like tbh that’s bc I had so much anxiety over the whole thing when I look back at it it was really an overreaction on her part and she made me feel super guilty and never confirmed that there were no ill feelings she just kinda let the hate go on against me but was so upset about the “hate” she got that her mom got involved? Like it wasn’t that big of a deal?? Plus she said to private message her my concerns and I did as well as an apology and the messages were never opened just like I knew they never would be! And her fans were so ill informed and quick to aggression saying her and Brian were perfect and that their pets were none of my business and then someone that CLEARLY follows (or I suppose followed) this blog fucking said that I have no place to judge other people’s pet choices since I’m a full time college student with a “large” (it’s really not imo) pet collection of my own bc apparently me being a college student means I can’t own pets?? Like I’m gonna make a post about this of course but pets are not something people need to mind their own business about people NEED to be critical of others care in order for the community as a whole to grow and if you can’t handle that kind of criticism (especially when it’s done in a very respectful manner as I feel I did) then you’re not ready to do right by your pets. I don’t know her videos used to brighten my day and now I feel kinda weird and sick whenever I see a new one is posted and debate whether or not I should watch it. Tbh if she would AT LEAST address the whole Brian thing I’d probably not be thinking about unsubbing rn she SAW and REPLIED to my comment saying that he was a really bad dude and that she needs to look into that if she wants to protect her reputation and she completely ignored the subject. And I feel like it’s solely bc she cares more about avoiding the hate and getting some subs from his fans I don’t know she just doesn’t seem as genuine to me anymore with all this going on and I don’t hate her at all but…I’m just kinda iffy and honestly a little sad about it bc she was such an inspiration for me and I don’t want to not like her anymore but I just don’t feel as good about supporting her now

i feel like writing some of my Kylo Ren, Rey, and general reylo headcanons bc why not? ^^

for Rey

  • i see her being of Latinx origin - like whenever I picture her in my head, when i read fanfic or canon material, i always see someone who’s brown. she’s from Jakku, a desert planet that gets a lot of sun, so to me it just makes sense that she’s a brown woman (i really love the skin color that @lilithsaur gives her in their art so picture something very similiar to that) 
  • if we’re talking about modern college AU’s, she would either be a horticulture, botany major OR an electrical or mechanical engineer - i just see her being really good with her hands, like that’s how she learns best which leads me to my next hc’s 
  • REY LOVES PLANTS!!! like so much, she loves spring time the best because of how green everything looks, it’s so vibrant and beautiful to her. she loves growing her own vegetables and fruits in her own garden. her favorite flowers are daisies feeling the dirt in her hands and getting tired after a long day in the garden are some of Rey’s favorite things in the world
  • she also really enjoys machines - taking them apart, putting them back together, knowing all the components of a something so that she understands exactly how it works because she just really wants to know she’s a curious person, let her live
  • if she smoked weed, she would prefer strains that smell more earthy and skunky - Rey would love it more if her weed was a nice dark green color with orange hairs
  • not sure if she wants to get married, but she envisions herself settling down with a long time partner and raising a family together (she just doesn’t see the point in making the relationship anything “more” and spending extra money/credits on an event they don’t need if they clearly love each other)
  • i see her listening to fall out boy, but like take this to your grave and from under the cork tree era fall out boy - she’s a pop punk kid at heart with the style of really fashionable hipsters lol but you can still catch Rey wearing her old ratty checkered vans from when she got them 8 years ago fight her

Kylo now! c’:

  • so i see him having PTSD and also having depression and anxiety because of that
  • this is due to Snoke’s influence on him - i mean there’s a lot of evidence pointing that Snoke targeted and manipulated Kylo since he was a small child, and that leaves some type of effect on a person. i myself have PTSD and depression + anxiety because of abuse, so honestly i really see myself in Kylo :b 
  • he smokes weed to help him manage his PTSD + depression + anxiety bc sometimes its too much and being high helps him keep his head above water - his favorite strains are sativas because they’re head highs and help him with his horrible headaches that he gets rather constantly 
  • Kylo loves weed strains that are fruity and sweet (one of his all time favorite strains is blueberry) 
  • in a modern college AU, he would definitely be some liberal arts major - i’m thinking probably a philosophy or psych or english major
  • if he’s a psych major, then he can’t even admit his own issue lmao like if something sounds similar when he’s studying he’ll be like “huh…weird” and then not dig any deeper because this boy is DENSE
  • if Kylo is a philosophy or english major then he’d be really pretentious and snobby. he would post quotes from random old or unknown philosophers or from some Byronic antihero literature that he loves so much but don’t worry bc Rey knocks his arrogant ass down a few pegs for being so snobby lol
  • i can also kinda see him being a polisci major? but i don’t see it too much tbh, this is just kinda something i can entertain, like maybe if it was an AU where Kylo never happened, so really it’d be Ben Solo Organa who’d be the polisci major
  • also Kylo’s name is actually Ben Solo Organa - he has both of his parents’ last names because that’s what Han and Leia wanted for their child(ren) 
  • he would always keep his hair that length and he’d be clean shaven - he doesn’t really like facial hair and feels more attractive without it tho he can def pull off a nice beard should he decide to grow it out 
  • his aesthetic is kinda punk/emo - he wears a lot of black, like pretty much his entire closet is black with very little color throughout. most of his color comes from his flannel (but even that has black on it, jfc Kylo chill with the motherfucking black). he wears doc martens, skinny jeans and some have rips in them, he likes v-necks a lot
  • BEANIES 
  • Kylo’s a little shy/insecure about his nose and his height - he thinks he’s too big and tries shrinking into himself but it kinda draws more attention to himself lol poor guy 
  • when his anxiety acts up, he has a habit of pinching at the skin on the top part of his wrist (this usually happens when he’s in therapy and talking about his issues and the things he’s done) 
  • in a modern AU, the reason Kylo has PTSD is because Snoke abused him - sometimes i imagine it happening in a headmaster/student context, or sometimes it’s in a coach/athlete context. basically Snoke is in a position of power when Kylo is really vulnerable to him and abuses him and then uses his power over Kylo to make sure the abuse is kept secret until Kylo finally has had enough and tells someone maybe his mom? uncle? Rey? idk 

reylo 

  • i want them to settle down on Naboo, somewhere in the lake countries - i think Rey would love the green and the water and the tranquility of the planet; Kylo would enjoy how quiet and isolated the lake countries of Naboo are bc he doesn’t want to really deal with a lot of people after the war. they both want a quiet, peaceful life
  • who knows about children??? Rey would like some, and Kylo would too, but when they settle down together they don’t really feel a strong need to start a family. if it happens, that’s cool but if it doesn’t then that’s cool too
  • if they do have kids they would have 3 - a girl, a boy, and another girl (born in that order) 
  • as far as canon goes, i’m gonna be totally fine if all we get is just Kylo and Rey having (the beginnings of) an empathetic, slightly compassionate relationship or understanding with each other
  • Rey absolutely adores Kylo’s hands. like she can’t get over how huge they are, especially compared to hers!!! she loves the feel of them cupping her cheeks, how they’re surprisingly soft (Kylo takes care of his skin, this boy LOVES BEING SOFT)
  • when they’re being naughty Kylo loves to squeeze Rey’s inner thighs - they’re nice and squishy and warm plus she enjoys it ;) 
  • other naughty time things they do is Kylo absolutely loves it when Rey is on top and rides him - he loves when she becomes selfish and only thinks of her own orgasm (it really brings him closer when she’s just thinking of herself, don’t ask him why it just does)
  • Rey loves when Kylo applies soft pressure to her neck with his large hand 
  • THEY BOTH LOVE NIPPLE PLAY in that Rey loves it when Kylo plays with her cute kinda big dark nipples and Kylo loves playing with them!!! in all types of ways (pinching, palming, biting, sucking, etc)
  • she steals his shirts/tunics/sweaters after they’re done having sex and likes to walk around their place in them - her butt sticks out a lil when she reaches up to get something so Rey likes to find any excuse to lift her arms to tease Kylo bc he loves her butt lmao 
  • they’re a very sweet, quiet couple. not a lot of PDA besides hand holding and the occasional kiss which is usually initiated by Kylo so he really loves it and turns red when Rey randomly kisses him (either on the cheek or on the lips)
  • they like to spend time at home together (either inside or outside, depends on the weather), in the quiet, reading books or newspapers together

anonymous asked:

Hello, do you know who posted the tweet with the drawings? I first thought it was jungkook because he tagged #Vhyung but he also called himself as #jungkookie.. which is kinda weird. So maybe it was Jimin ? Also did you notice when jimin tweets he alway post his name in capital but the tweet with the maknae line he wrote in lowercase. Do they really tweet themselves or someone else does for them?

No I’m not entirely sure tbh. But I guess it was implying that it was supposed to be Jungkook so that makes sense. I think some of us were talking about this earlier and we did think it was kind of weird that the usual signature was different but…who knows? 

It’s entirely possible that some staff members can tweet in place of them with a joint account such as this (I feel like the entire purpose of having a joint account is so they can monitored and/or other people can post in their place). An individual account certainly implies more freedom, so…I don’t know to be completely honest. Not to question their genuinity or anything but I think the implications of a joint account are obvious XD

Hi hello to the people who will actually read this and not just delete the caption and reblog, i got a photo internship for a minor league baseball team and they’re letting me use my film cameras the entire season which is dope.  These are just some pictures from the first 3 rolls I got back.  I’m not really a huge sports person (or commercial/sports photography enthusiast) tbh but i appreciate the aesthetic and the weird americanaishness of baseball stadiums so yeah, might post more of these, might not, enjoy regardless.  I never post long text like this because I think it’s kinda ugly but it’s just kind of a cool thing and I thought I’d share.

I'm a super baby witch with little to no experience with warding, but this weird energy is kinda messing me up tbh, and I'd rather be safe than sorry, could you please give me some tips/warding things you know? Thank you in advance for anything you can come up with, even if it is just sending me to another blog <3

Hello there!
I’m sorry things are getting weird around here.

I’m currently on the mobile app so I can’t really make a pretty post about warding but if you don’t mind I can tag you in a few posts on how to set up wards and what they are.

Once you get the basics down they are surprisingly easy to customize and set up.

anonymous asked:

hi kylie! i was just wonderin if you could help me out. i'm having a party/get together thing with some friends and i wanted to give them some goodie bags. one of the things i really want to include is some sheet masks! they don't have to be top quality, preferably something nice and affordable? it would also be great if you could recommend any items that would be fun for an intro to korean beauty? i'm in the US if that helps! sorry for asking so much!!!

one of the places i always recommend for good quality and affordable sheet masks is innisfree global, they have 10 + 10 sales which make sheet masks really affordable. i don’t know when your party is though, so you might not be able to get to that before the deadline.

since you’re in the us, that’s actually perfect since amazon usually has a lot of great packages for sheet masks, and a lot of them also have prime shipping. here are just a few:

i have a post here about my recommended items for kbeauty beginners, and here are some other more fun / gimmicky items too:

if you are buying a lot of stuff (i don’t how many people you have), stores like roseroseshop and beautynetkorea sell wholesale lots of 10 items, so that can make it a bit cheaper.

tbh, i don’t really follow many blogs or have many favorites. i’m kinda weird in that i love to just search tumblr for hours, find cool posts with very little notes & share them. idk if that’s a unique approach, but it’s what i do :)
