so Nen has weird effects on water and we see with Palm that it also works on coffee and I kinda wish there were more instances in HxH of people accidentally (or intentionally) affecting liquids with their auras
like Leorio decks Ging in the face and in the background the contents of all the Zodiacs’ water bottles turn sunset-orange
the footsteps Melody leaves behind when running in the rain are pastel green for just a split second before they wash away
Kurapika insists that they’re feeling fine but Gon notices little particles of iron starting to swirl around in their glass
Illumi says Killua loves him and suddenly all the drinks in the bar taste like sour candy courtesy of Hisoka
Chrollo gets the news that two of his best friends are dead and all the liquid around him vanishes, down to the very last drop

Leatherworking with gremble: Anders round bag tutorial
How2Andersbag, part 1! The whole set is available at my shop, but some DIY-minded people had expressed interest in my method because the construction for round bags can be weird. Once you get the patterning done though, making it doesn’t take any fancy tools at all: awl, hole punch, rivet setter, needle and heavy thread, and you’re good to go.
Neil is curled up in bed next to Andrew, skating the edge of sleep after an exhaustive practice and the powerful drowsiness that came after Andrew sucked him off once they’d crawled into Andrew’s bed. Andrew is contemplating a cigarette, but that means crawling over Neil, which sounds like effort. So Andrew stares at Neil instead, at the way Neil’s arms slowly wrap around himself as he turns his face into his pillow.
“Why do you always do that?” He asks idly, and he hadn’t realized just how close Neil was to nodding off until Neil jolts back to wakefulness and turns his head slightly to eye Andrew in the near-dark.
“You hold yourself when you fall asleep,” Andrew clarifies. He doesn’t repeat his question, but it hangs there between them, and the longer it’s there, the weightier it feels, because Neil not only doesn’t answer but stops breathing for a few seconds.
Andrew waits patiently and considers his pack of cigarettes on the desk again, now that Neil is awake and would move a bit to let him out of bed easier.
Neil’s arms finally tighten around himself. “Don’t laugh.”
☽Summary☾ ; Being together with Yoongi as a couple, meant to be showing the affection in private places, to where no one is able to see. But what happens, at a party where Yoongi reaches his limit.
Invited to the biggest after party at MNET, there was something about the way Yoongi bluntly invited you to come with. There wasn’t anything meaningful in it, at least not in the way he said it.
“Are you coming with?” Is what his exact words were, when he asked you in front of the boys at their dorm. Getting together to have a casual night talking in the living room, and you couldn’t possibly say ‘no’ to him. Being together for two years, it was like the magic went away when it came to things like this. Even Jimin were curious if you ever shared a loving kiss or holding hands in public, where it was almost a certain 'no’.
So, it has come to my knowledge that Lamar Abrams has apologized for Concrete.
While that is a nice gesture from him, that doesn’t excuse all of the things that happened before. There is also Rebecca Sugar, who is HIGHLY involved on Concrete’s description (that was her handwriting, I guess); she also has to apologize.
But, even if they did felt sorry for that repulsive caricature, it’s still bullshit.
“Sorry” doesn’t excuse the fact that Garnet, Amethyst and Connie are written in such a lousy manner.
“Sorry” doesn’t excuse the fact that Bismuth was demonized since the very beginning.
“Sorry” doesn’t excuse the fact that the Rubies are written as dumb and naive.
“Sorry” doesn’t excuse the fact that CrystalGem!Ruby is written as ill-tempered and destructive.
“Sorry” doesn’t excuse the fact that the zoomans were seen as “hot” and “childlike”.
The damage is already done. You just can’t un-crack an egg. It’s impossible to turn back now.
Long Story Short: It’s too late to apologize, you guys still are racist assholes to me, and SU should be CANCELLED.
