Joker Imagine - Ignorant PART 2

Part 1 here


Do you have a part two to Ignorant?? When the reader is being stalked while J ignores her? I’d really like to see how J treats the guy once he finds him and how he claims her for the whole city to see making an example out of the Stalker.

Your P.O.V.

Joker’s car was somehow the comfiest place ever right now. We had found my stalker by looking through the security footage to see who left the box. I recognized his face immediately. What a coward he had to be to actually show up behind our door. So J made his henchmen find his address and that’s exactly where we were going. He was holding the steering wheel tightly and he looked angry. Then we had me. I was honestly a little scared. I mean, the guy has an obsession with me!

We were both dressed well tonight. Joker was wearing his purple jacket, no shirt underneath with black pants and shiny black shoes. He also had gold rings and chains on him, making him very sexy. I was wearing a black dress that covered my bum and just a little more. The dress had golden patterns that fit with my golden heels. My tattoos were visible and I stared at my favourite one ‘If lost, return to Joker’ that was on my leg. The font was pretty and the fact that J had tattooed me made me love them even more.

But then we had to get out of the car and I felt anxious. I really didn’t want to see him, but I had to. Besides I had J to protect me, right? ‘’Come on baby’’ He told me deeply and grabbed his special made gun. I sighed and followed him inside the block of flats. This stalker of mine lived on the first floor so it was easier for us to drag him into the car. J had a crazy plan. I watched as he broke the door with only one kick and we stepped inside the apartment. It smelled bad, like he hadn’t changed the air in months. It also smelled like trash and beer.

‘’Get out get out wherever you are!’’ J growled and looked around. Everything was messy. I stayed close to J as we walked further inside. The walls were a yellowish white and the floor was a red carpet floor, full of stains. I felt grossed out by just being here. J kicked another door open and we walked into a bedroom. He turned on the lights and the first thing I saw was the man sleeping on a small dirty bed. Then I saw the worse things..

News articles, photos, drawings of me were stickered onto his wall and he had dozens of notes scattered across the room. I saw my face everywhere from times even months ago. J turned to look at me quietly. I was horrified and disgusted. How long had he stalked me like this?! ‘’Get your sorry ass up’’ J hissed and loaded the gun. My stalker woke up and stared at J. He was only wearing a dirty T-shirt, boxers and socks. His hair was greasy.

‘’Oh darling you’re finally here’’ He gasped as he saw me. He tried to stand up, but J hit his face with the gun. ‘’She’s not your darling’’ J told him angrily and watched as his nose started bleeding. I bet he broke his nose. ‘’What the fuck..’’ Mr. Stalker breathed out and glanced at me. I just wanted to go away. ‘’Get dressed’’ J demanded and pointed back at the guy with his gun. J kicked some jeans on his lap and my Stalker had no other choice than to put them on.

‘’Where are we going?’’ He dared to ask us with a small voice. He was getting really scared now. ‘’You’ll see’’ I just smiled, but wanted to shoot him right there. J grabbed his neck harshly and pushed him towards the outdoor. The three of us got back into the car where J hit his head, causing him to black out. I got seated and let J tie him up before we could get on the road again. This would be crazy for sure.

***

‘’Everyone get down now!’’ Joker yelled as we got inside the television station.We got into a big blue office where they were editing the live news. The workers saw us and immediately got down on the floor with their arms up in the air. A couple of J’s henchmen held my stalker who was waking up slowly as I followed my boyfriend closely -of course with my gun in my hands.

‘’Y-You can’t go in there!’’ A man stuttered as J opened the door to the room where they were filming the news. J wasn’t up for bullshit so he just shot the guy making the others whimper out in fear. I just smiled and then we all walked in the LIVE room. The news reporter turned pale as he saw me, J, his henchmen and the guy that stalked me. J’s henchmen got rid of the camera men, pushing them away and then they made the reporter surrender as well. A talented henchmen grabbed the camera and walked closer to J. We were literally LIVE on Gotham tv. It made me excited, yet a little nervous.

‘’Listen up people of Gotham’’ J started and smiled widely, flashing his grillz. I stayed away from the camera in case he didn’t want me to be filmed. ‘’This man here has fucked up real bad..You see he dared to stalk my beautiful girlfriend’’ He sighed and pulled me next to him. I felt like blushing, but I forced myself to smile and wrap my arms around J. ‘’She’s mine, got it?’’ J growled angrily into the camera. Oh how flattering!

‘’I wouldn’t want you to do the same mistakes. Because this is what happens..’’ J told them and then the camera pointed at the stalker. J’s henchmen had tied him to a chair and he had tape on his mouth. I watched as J walked closer to him and started literally growling. He was hot when he was so angry, but I wouldn’t want to be the person he was angry at. 

‘’You’re disgusting’’ J spat at the guy and stopped right in front of him. My stalker was crying and trying to defend himself, but the tape muffled his words. Suddenly J grabbed his gun and petted the guy’s cheek with the tip. ‘’You’re setting a great example for the rest of Gotham not to fuck with me’’ J snarled and cupped the guy’s face with his other hand.

‘’Last words?’’ He asked with a grin. The guy just yelled from fear and tried to wiggle away. Oh what a pussy. I rolled my eyes and crossed my arms, waiting for J to kill him and get rid of him forever. ‘’Oh wait, you can’t speak!’’ J laughed loudly in a mocking way and then placed the gun on his forehead. He pulled the trigger and with a bang, my stalker was dead. His head fell back a little and it looked like he broke his neck as well. He died quickly. The blood splattered on the floor and people were crying in the editing room.

But I was happy as you could be.

‘’You don’t want to be next’’ J warned everyone watching us before making a hand gesture to inform everyone that we had to leave now. Batman was probably on the way already. I grabbed his hand and we hurried outside together. ‘’Thanks Puddin’’ I smiled as we literally jumped down the stairs like maniacs. ‘’No problem’’ 

***

We got home without being noticed by stupid Batman. People were probably traumatized by what they witnessed on tv today, but I was so cheerful and happy. J seemed pretty pleased as well. ‘’I bet the entire world is gonna talk about this by tomorrow’’ I giggled while wrapping my arms around his neck while I was leaning against his chest. 

‘’Let them. I don’t anyone to play tricks on you doll’’ He purred softly while holding me closer by my bum. His scent made me feel safe and I was so happy. The last few weeks had been the worst since he had ignored me and the stalker stepped in, but now I felt like everything was perfect. Nothing felt wrong.

‘’I hope the entire world knows that you’re my girl’’ Joker whispered into my ear deeply and made my heart flutter. I was his girl, no one else’s. The best part was that I loved it. He made my life like a fairytale. ‘’Hmm and you’re mine J: If I see those dancers trying to touch you, I’ll shoot them’’ I giggled like it was funny. He gave me a big smile and removed one hand from my ass so he could cup my face.

‘’That’s exactly why you’re perfect. You seem as crazy as me’’ He let me know before leaning closer to me. Our noses brushed and my heart was fluttering harder in my chest. ‘’Let daddy take care of you..’’

Prosperity Altars

Altars are a place where the veil is thinned and instructions can be clearly typed in to the Matrix. I don’t know how else to describe it, so just roll with me on this one.

An altar is created, delineated, and blessed intentionally. I do not know if certain spaces can become unintentional altars.

An altar can be any type of space or surface. A matchbox can hold an altar; so can a six foot dinner table. Use what you have available to you, and be sneaky if you need to be. A perfectly valid altar is a drawing of an altar on a piece of paper, kept in your wallet.

An altar is like a computer program, and every object or decoration on the altar is a line of code. Everything on the altar, placed intentionally or unintentionally (like dust or car keys), will input information in to the Universe and affect the outcome.

Altars can be built for any purpose. A very common altar is a prosperity altar, a working altar for spellcasting, a general purpose altar for many things, a love altar, etc. I am sure some people have hex and curse altars, too.

I will be focusing on prosperity altars in this post because someone sent me a request for more information.

Altars must be personal. Let’s say that in your country, the money is all red and blue colored. But online, you see that the colors for money are green and gold. Which to use? Use the colors that are most personal to you. Don’t use foreign correspondences above personal correspondences.

This is important: Every time you look at your altar, it should remind you of its purpose. My current prosperity altar isn’t working to well, because it’s very Spartan and drab. I need a rich, overflowing, lush altar for my personal uses. Every time you look at your altar, you send it power and energy (just as you power everything you think of). If looking at your altar reminds you of its purpose, you fuel its purpose. If it reminds you of nothing, you fuel nothing.

If all you need for your altar is a big piece of paper that says BRING ME MONEY, UNIVERSE then draw it out and pin it up on the wall, and boom, there you go. Don’t over-complicate it if you don’t need to.

This article however is a little more about traditional altars (don’t forget: for a nontraditional altar, tumblr side blogs work beautifully).

There are certain things I think it’s nice to have on a traditional altar.

THURIBLE A thurible, censer, or incense burner is good to have on any altar if you can burn incense. If you can’t burn incense, don’t bother with it. I found my thurible at Goodwill for $2. No need to spend a lot on it.

CANDLESTICKS Of course if you can burn candles, you will want a few good candlesticks on your altar. Get candlesticks of varying height and size, so you can choose which spells take priority over others. You may want your altar to have one candle, or twelve. It’s up to you.

STATEMENTS Statements are written intents of what you want to happen, and they are excellent and directing the focus and energy of an altar. If you want, write out a simple statement of what you want to happen (“I am wealthy and prosperous”) and put it on your altar. I have a wish box, painted with a sigil of manifestation, that holds many varying wishes.

DECORATIONS You will want to decorate your altar! Put decorations on it which remind you of the altar’s purpose. For a prosperity altar, try beautiful flowers which have money correspondences such as chamomile flowers.  

POWER OBJECTS These are collected objects which represent something. For a love altar, you would naturally want two power objects: one to represent you, and one to represent the object of your affections. For a prosperity altar there are many choices; one object could represent your wealth, another your prosperity, another your cashflow, another your savings, another your debt. Collect objects and bless and dedicate them to represent something special. Then, treat these objects as poppets. For example, put banishing oils on your debt object. Send energy to your wealth object. Power objects can also represent spirits who are willing to help you.

TALISMANS Talismans are different than power objects. While a power object represents something that you can then manipulate, a talisman simply draws powers to you. My current prosperity altar has two money talismans. Talismans are crafted and created, as opposed to power objects which can simply be collected or found. Talismans can be jars and boxes filled with objects, or they can be blessed drawings, jewelry, and objects that draw things in to you.

OFFERING PLATE As a spirit worker I give offerings regularly. Try giving offerings to your spirit companions, guides, guardians, and the altar itself. Give them the energy they need to help make your wishes come true!

ALTAR CLOTH Basically, you need something to delineate your altar as a special space. An altar cloth is a great way to do this. If your altar is in a box or container, the container will mark its boundaries and you do not need an altar cloth. If your altar is on a shared space you really need something to mark where your altar begins and ends.

Setting up an altar is easy. Cleanse everything to give it a fresh start. Place your altar cloth first if you have one. Start putting objects down! Organize them in whatever fashion makes you happy. As you place each object, state its intent.

“This object represents my debt.”

“This object draws money to me.”

“This object reminds me of how prosperous I can be.”

Don’t add any object, even simple decorations, without giving it a purpose.

When you are done, speak to your altar as a whole. Explain to it its new purpose, and send it lots of energy. Fuel it with a lot of power and tell it exactly what to do: “Your job is to erase my debt and bring me lots of money.” Burn candles and incense to mark this occasion. Otherwise do something special to celebrate the creation of your new altar.

Energize your altar once daily for the first two weeks, then once or twice weekly after that. Energize your altar by sending it energies, burning candles, drawing down energies, or doing your favorite charging technique. Clean your altar physically whenever you send it energies. You need to keep it in tip-top shape!

When you are done with your altar, speak to it. Say its purpose is done. Take it apart piece by piece and tell each part it’s job is done. Put all the things away, cleanse the space again, and fill it with mundane objects.

anonymous asked:

Do you have any tips on how to write things like fanfics/one shots/headcanons? I'm a fanartist and writing isn't really my thing but I thought I could try. It would be nice to be able to write fanfics inspired by the drawings I make

First off, thanks for coming to me as I’m super honored. So honestly this is going to be how I write, other people may do things differently and this might not work for you but I hope it helps! (Send me the finished product cause I’m a sucker for fanart/fic combos)

The best tip I can give you is to read. A lot. Everything from published authors to fanfic to magazine and newspaper articles. I know it sounds lame but seeing how other people write really helps. This way you also pick up on other people’s style and you can figure out what you like and don’t like, try and think how you would reword it or change it. This will help you develop your own style. (Also this helped little kid me learn so much about proper grammar it’s not even funny.)

I’ve always had a bit of an overactive imagination so I’ll often play out little scenes in my head when I’m bored. I just imagine them happening and then later when I go to write I try and describe as best as I can what went on in my brain. The same way you might sum up a plot of a particularly dramatic tv show to a friend or tell your mom the story of how your brother spectacularly failed when trying to ask out a girl. (More often than not I write the way I speak and think so if you’ve been on the other end of one of my long-winded tales of embarrassment you’d pick up on that.) 

To this extent, adjectives are your friends! As are similes, metaphors, and synonyms. The last thing you want is for your dialogue to read “he said” “she said” “then he said” etc. Constant pronouns are confusing and it’ll get really boring really quickly.

Now I’m going to sound like a hypocrite because, use all of the above sparingly! Don’t go overboard on the descriptive words or it’ll get bogged down and sometimes “said” really is the best word (there’s so many posts floating around, most of which have ended up on my blog, to prove that).

My final tip is that editing is your friend. If you read over it and think it sounds bad or awkward than change it! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve reread something and gone “I can’t believe I wrote that! It doesn’t even make sense!” It’s your piece and at the end of it the only thing that should matter is whether or not YOU’RE happy with it, no one else. (To prove it I’ve read over my response to you about ten times now to make sure it makes sense and changed something every time.)

All of the above is what I use when writing fics/oneshots/original writing as I tend to be more formal with them. Headcannons are mush more informal, more a “I like to think that zebras all secretly love ice cream floats. So once a month they have a meet up in a super secret place to make ice cream floats and gossip.” They don’t really have to follow any proper conventions and are often rambling and with bullet points, cross section diagrams, parenthesis, whatever. Those are at your complete creative liberty and you don’t have to be a “writer” to make a post with them. 

I hope this helped, if not let me know and I’ll try and come up with a better answer! If you’ve got more specific questions or ever just want to chat/talk out something that’s not going right in your writing feel free to drop me another ask!

shatteringangels  asked:

I'm working on the draft of my book and I'm having a really hard time coming up with the first sentence. Do you guys have any tips for making a first sentence that'll get people hooked? Thanks in advance!

The first thing to do is to ask yourself what it is that you find interesting–what kinds of openings draw you in?
That’s the best place to start because you can’t please everyone, so you might as well start with the easiest audience.

I agree with pretty much everything in this article–if you want something that will be worded way better than what I’m going to say.

I think so often we as writers fall victim to trying to hook a reader in too much, if that makes sense.
We think we need to have MCs found in the heat of battle, or in the middle of a dire confrontation, or having just suffered a great loss.
While those are all hooks that are fine and dandy, we also have to remember that just because our stories don’t start out the same way, it doesn’t mean our hooks are boring.

I’m going to use a couple of examples:

…Every syllable of my message came through.

Sometimes we had to crawl, had to run, had to lie partly submerged in a swamp or in a lagoon, or in the dead heat, pinned under fire. But there was no problem. We transmitted our messages under any and all conditions[…]

This is the opening of The Navajo Code Talkers by Doris A. Paul.
While is does open with war, in a way, it isn’t the central focus. Rather, the focus is on what they were doing there. And you want to know why.

Take the opening of Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones:
In the land of Ingary where such things as seven-league boots and cloaks of invisibility really exist, it is quite a misfortune to be born the eldest of the three.

Though comparatively tame to other hooks, it certainly wastes no time in drawing you in. It raises the question of “what are seven-league boots,” “what kind of place is Ingary,” and–above all things–“why is being the eldest such a great misfortune?”

One thing to note is what Paula says at the end of that article I mentioned: There’s no one way to write a great hook, but if you remember that the hook is a promise of things to come, you won’t go wrong.

Hope that helped!

Do you have any creative prompts for a travel journal?? I travel a lot but I always seem to get writer's block when I try to put down my experiences : /

Hello there. Of course! I love to travel, too! It’s always hard to focus on your writing when there’s so many great things to see and do. (That kind of rhymed…didn’t it?)

Here are a few prompts and suggestions I hope will help send you in the right direction: 

     Tip: Write with a pen (that doesn’t bleed through your pages.) You want to   remember everything! Don’t let your words get smudged.

  • Cut out pictures of your destination from a magazine. Make a collage of the places you want to visit. 
  • Make a list of the things you’re going to pack. Tape this list in your journal for future reference.
  • How was your journey? What kind of transportation did you use to get where you’re going? Write a paragraph about your experience and then draw 5 stars. Rate your experience by shading those stars in with a yellow highlighter or a gold gel pen.
  • When you’ve arrived, list 10 interesting things you’ve never seen before. Look at things that catch your eye and instantly capture your interest. Use Shutterfly , Instagram, or a regular digital camera to save these photos and print them out at a later date. 
  • 79 Travel Photography Tips you might like to read about.
  • If you take a tour, write down interesting facts or small blurbs. Take notes in the margins of your pamphlets and then tape them into your journal. 
  • Has anyone said anything inspiring on your trip? Use a voice recorder to record your favorite phrases throughout the trip. Draw a quote bubble then write down that inspiring phrase. Cite the freaking awesome person who said it before you forget. (Maybe you can use that quote to impress someone later.) 
  • Collect objects like interesting flowers, seashells, souvenir pens, etc…Stow them away in your backpack for safekeeping.

And, if journaling isn’t working out for you, you can always bring a cool scrapbook along! You can find them at any craft or dollar store near you.


Bon voyage, mon ami! :)

I’m trying to get fit and lose some weight, so I’m not entirely happy with my body. But I am happy with the things I can’t change, like my shape. No matter how much weight I lose, my thighs stay big and my hips continue being really wide. But honestly? I’m happy about that. Not even just okay with it. I’m really happy about it! I don’t try to “balance out” my figure with ruffled tops anymore, or wear strapless tops to try to “visually widen my shoulders” and I just laugh when articles for pear shape girls warn us not to wear anything that could draw attention to our rear, our “least flattering location”. I’m embracing everything that makes me a pear, and I’m not gonna spend any more time or energy trying to find ways to hide it!

World Building: Building a Hidden World

Anonymous asked: Hi. So I recently started coming up with a new idea for a story. I need to build a new world for the story, but not a completely new one. It’s still going to take place on Earth in modern times, but there is going to be another “world” that the story takes place in that most people (at least those not part of it) don’t know about. Sort of like the magical society in Harry Potter or the gods/demigods thing in the Percy Jackson books. Any advice for how to do this? (love your blog btw)


(Thanks!) :)

The best thing to do is start a folder on your desktop (or grab a blank spiral notebook if you prefer the non-digital route), and start looking for inspiration. I like the desktop folder method because you can make sub-folder for things like landscape, buildings, people, government–whatever elements you want to flesh out. Then, start a notepad or word document in each folder for writing down ideas. After that, look for inspiration, starting on Google Image Search. If you have castles in your magical world, look up pictures of castles and save the ones you like in the proper folder. Save everything that inspires you whether it’s a picture, song, newspaper article, poem, actor, anything!

The next thing you’ll want to do is draw a map or layout of the important parts of the area. Remember, you don’t have to flesh out parts of the world that aren’t important to your story. Once you have your maps and layouts, you can hone in on the particular things you’ll need to flesh out further, particular buildings, streets, governmental elements, etc. That’s just basic world building stuff. Here are some previous posts to help out with that. :)

Common misconceptions

Assuming it’s a stunt equals to doubting Zayn’s talent

FALSE. I’ve seen a lot of people use the argument that calling it a stunt means we “don’t believe he can be successful with a solo career”. Unless we’re talking about Zayn haters—though they’re among the ones buying into the official narrative—his talent is not up to discussion. He’s shown how much he can do working under the restrictions imposed on the band, and he’s now giving us all an insight on his true potential. If anybody thinks anyone on 1D has shown his true potential yet, we clearly haven’t been following the same band.

People want “Zayn’s unhappiness”, thus want him back

FALSE. I don’t even know how this one works. This fandom has this bizarre culture of caring about their fave and hating on the other four/three/two. Truth is that some don’t want him back because a) they never cared about the band to start with or b) hated him from the start. As absurd as it sounds, this is how this fandom works. Yikes.

Personally, I don’t know how that’s a thing. I suppose most people got into the band due to the boys’ dynamics? There’s a HUGE difference between One Direction band (the boys and their obvious love for one another) and the One Direction brand (the machine behind the boys and responsible for the fuckery we’ve sadly grown used to). No matter how much you hate your fave’s friend, the boys will choose one another over ANY of us. Why would they even choose complete strangers over people they love and have shared a big part of their lives with?

Everything “needs to be a conspiracy”

VERY FALSE. Honestly! How in the world you can be lied to for years and then think that one day everything is magically solved? There’s a lot of money at stake in this, and if you haven’t noticed yet, the boys have been overworked because of the greedy puppet masters behind them. Why in the world would that change so easily all of a sudden? If it had been that easy to change things from the start, why drag it for years? And why would anyone think of Simon Cowell as this super benevolent father figure (even though it’s the image he wants to sell), when he’s the reason the boys have gone years on a cycle of recording-tour-stunting during breaks? I don’t really think you get articles about artists saying bad things about him for nothing, y’know.

Questioning stuff makes you a “bad fan”

FALSE. I feel like it happens too often in this fandom. You’re either supposed to accept/like everything or “hate” everything. There’s no in between. You’re supposed to take everything at face value, or be branded “delusional”. *snorts* Analyse stuff yourself and draw your own conclusions. Don’t be afraid of questioning something just because you’re told you’re no longer being lied to. What says that you really aren’t? Not to burst anyone’s bubble, but there’s a lot of fucked up shit people do when there’s money involved. Especially true for those with an absurd amount of money and power. If things were so easily resolved, then lawyers wouldn’t be necessary.

anonymous asked:

also he basically called out @Louis for /being/ 1DHQ, so if he gets a tweet from him it will make the whole thing more transparent and draw attention to exactly what the article said

I KNOW I LOVED THAT. when he said something along the lines of the blame not falling on louis. if @louis_ does react now it just makes everything even more transparent.

i think part 2 will dig more into the mechanics of how controlling simon is and how oppressive their contracts are too which really just brightens the spotlight on anything and everything louis’ social media does should simon try to retaliate.

damn what a great way to start the weekend.

Fall is in the air, my design classes are in full swing, and I’ve got the drawing bug again. This lovely print features a hand-rendered caribou that’s all full of stars- you may recognize the stars from my very own photographs of the night sky in my favorite wild place.

I try to only source my textures and materials from things I make myself- everything is made from scratch. Photographs lovingly (or begrudgingly) collected in the field, and drawings hand rendered in an ordinary sketchbook. I hope the organic feel of a hand drawn item remains true in the printed project. Each piece is an effort in mixed media.

This piece is available as a print, or as an article of clothing or a phone case.

Hajimama, i haven't been drawing often mainly because school has been taking up all my time... It's the weekend for me here and i have some free time, but i don't have any ideas. Plus, I'm kind of slacking off in my language arts class and I'm trying not to but the teacher is just so boring...

Look out the window: Draw the first thing you see. Or go for Wikipedia’s random article to find something to draw. Personally I never not know how to draw, I’m just too scared to fail drawing the first thing that comes to mind and that’s unnecessary, cause as an artist you can draw literally everything. There’s no “I can’t draw that” It just might not look like the way you wanted it to, but you can work on that.

anonymous asked:

dont you always say not to take to heart what is said in print interviews bc its more than likely that it never comes from the boys mouth.. but when it comes to ziam or larry print interview.. its automically true?

Why are you cherry picking my advice? Hidden agenda much? Btw, I’ve never said that 100% of print interviews are made up. I’ve never even said “more than likely”. I do say grain of salt sometimes (depending on surrounding circumstances) and look for possible red flags. If it comes across as to you as a fan as sketchy, it probably is. And don’t I also say context is important, don’t try to take one thing and make it everything, recognize patterns and then draw reasonable conclusions?

So what you’re missing here is:

  • From what we’ve seen from 1D’s team in the past (context and patterns), they absolutely WOULD NOT make-up these quotes. Their commitment to “no homo” the past few years has been epic. Something has shifted. We’ve seen little shifts in the narrative lately (more context) that seem to be laying the groundwork for the end of 2 fauxmances. One never was (Hadine) is also over. So it’s not strange to think this article is part of that shift (reasonable conclusion).
  • Simon Jones has a habit of co-signing things (patterns) he wants the fandom to notice. He co-signed this article at least twice in the past few days (context and patterns). HJPR is also no more. Simon Jones seems to still be handling PR business for 1D. As an openly gay man, he’s probably open to the idea of shifting away from 1D’s traditionally homophobic messaging (context). Especially with a management change likely on the horizon (context and reasonable conclusion).
  • What we know of 1D is that they have never ever needed any help making up quotes that lead people in the direction of same sex relationships within the band (context and patterns). What they have needed “help” with is maintaining a super heterosexual image. Hence fauxmances, “…biggest load of bullshit…”, porn tweet favoriting, “…100% not gay” and “I am in fact straight” (patterns). The only thing management would need to do to shift away from that is to turn them loose and allow them to be themselves without censorship. This interview comes across as pretty authentic to me. And that’s why so many people in the fandom assumed it was an old interview (context and patterns). Because they KNOW what the real 1D used to sound like in interviews (reasonable conclusion).
  • Aside from all that, this is just one interview. Even without it, there’s a mountain of credible evidence pointing to Larry and Ziam being very real romantic relationships (don’t take one thing and try to make it everything).

So that’s why this interview is legit, imo. I hope you found this enlightening.

Hi bara chan! I'm a big fan out your work! I was wondering if u had any tips for someone who's shy and has had an artblock for years? I follow a bunch of artists on here and twitter, but too scared to talk to them or start drawing again. Thank u!

thank you!! hopefully this old post of mine will help you with the art block problem: http://barachan.tumblr.com/post/21308546621/ive-been-letting-things-that-i-want-to-ask-you-about

as for talking to other artists, the #1 thing is to just remember that they’re human beings sorry to dismissively link you to other things ahhh but there was actually a perfect article i found about this a while ago, it lists everything better than i can: http://phantom42.tumblr.com/post/78476412132/so-youve-decided-to-talk-to-an-artist

the only thing i would add is that most artists are ok with nice compliments and art chat, but they get that sort of thing all day long, often with strings attached. it’s even nicer when someone realizes they’re a human with possible hobbies and interests outside of art, so if you notice that an artist you follow shares a similar non-art interest as yourself (dogs, a band, a video game genre, pizza, etc,) feel free to mention it and see if it sparks more of a convo

good luck!
