the zero check

Check out some of Phoebe’s animations on the @indivisiblerpg tumblr: http://indivisiblerpg.tumblr.com/post/160846535551/we-interrupt-your-regularly-scheduled

Here are a few of the notes / sketches / practice from pre-production, to get a hang of drawing Phoebe.

I figure it might be interesting to see the steps along the way as it goes towards the final production. 

The animations in the Lab Zero post were done by @junkpuyo and @personasama

Sharing Stage/2.5D Content

So there are some things I want to go over about sharing, reposting, and general distribution of content.  And while I’m going to talk specifically about Engeki Haikyuu, some of the more general stuff can be applied to most Japanese stage plays, musicals, and general theater.  

I wanted to make this post because I’m seeing a lot of frustration in fandom from both content providers and fans and followers butting heads on this issue.  First off, we have to acknowledge that there is an undeniable precedent that’s existed in fandom that makes fans feel entitled to all the content all the time, for free.  And there is knowledge of the industry that content providers have that I think we’re not communicating frequently enough to help fans understand our positions on these issues.

It’s lengthy, but please take some time to look under the Read More and read about this issue.

My 26 calorie vegan lunch!

⋆ shirataki noodles (10 calories, 200g)

⋆ spring onion (6 calories, 20g)

⋆ soy sauce (10 calories, 1tbsp)

I rinsed the noodles really well.  Put into a non stick frying pan with the soy sauce, added the onions, and stir fried for maybe 10 minutes, so the noodles dry out a little.  That’s all!

I live in Japan so these types of noodles are easy to find but I am pretty sure they are available as “weight loss noodles” or “zero calorie noodles” overseas.  Check the refrigerator section.

some advice

so, you’re joining the hamilton fandom and want to produce content? great!! scared of the unofficial etiquette in this mess? let me help.
(disclaimer: this is an UNOFFICIAL guideline. i’m aware that this fandom is a problematic mess that’s full of discourse and the only adult ones tend to be actual legal adults. don’t fuckin @ me saying that hur durr i’m wrong and should rot in hell. this is based off personal experience.)

-SHIPS
•Most pairings are accepted. The main ones are Hamilton/Laurens, Hamilton/Burr, Hamilton/Eliza, Jefferson/Madison, Jefferson/Hamilton, Washington/Lafayette, Maria/Eliza (or any Schuyler sister rly) and Mulligan/Lafayette. These usually have the most content, but also contain the most discourse. There’s also some major minor character ships out there; Lee/Seabury, Lee/KG3, Seabury/KG3 etc. I found Eacker/Philip H smut once. This fandom is literally the reason why Rule 34 exists. If it exists, there is porn of it.
•Polyamorous ships are widely accepted. I don’t ship any personally, but a few big ones are Hamilton/Eliza/Laurens, Laurens/Hamilton/Lafayette/Mulligan, Hamilton/Jefferson/Madison, etc. Basically, a lot of people like the idea of Hamilton’s cheating being converted into a happy, consensual relationship that’s polygamous, and that’s okay. (Please note I’m not equating cheating with polyamory. Hamilton being a dirty cheater doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with poly ships if you don’t want, but to me it seems particularly common, especially with the ships containing Hamilton and Eliza.)
•And I know you want to ask; what’s not accepted? Hard question. This fandom loves its angst, so there aren’t many ships that seem untouchable. For the love of God, though, don’t write anything that’s incestuous. I’m talking father/son, sibling/sibling. Don’t make any of Hamilton’s kids end up with the characters in the show. No, Washington/Hamilton doesn’t count as incest, although I personally can’t stand it.
•BASICALLY, don’t be a dick. Also, bear in mind that James Reynolds is the Umbridge of this fandom. If you portray his relationship with Maria as anything less than abusive, there will be riots. I’ve yet to see an (educated) James Reynolds apologist.

-CHARACTERS

•In terms of physical appearance, this fandom is a little wishy-washy on guidelines, unofficial or no. Tip: don’t whitewash if you’re drawing/writing them as their musical characters. Just don’t whitewash in general. This fandom seems to be okay with historical-era fanart and fanfic, which usually involves the characters looking like they did historically, but don’t romanticise them. Don’t romanticise them in general, but especially if you’re making them historical-era.
•SPEAKING OF ROMANTICISING, these characters were BAD PEOPLE. Jefferson owned slaves, Burr owned slaves, Washington owned slaves, the Schuylers owned slaves, evidence points to Hamilton owning at least one slave. Don’t let the Alexander apologists fool you; they were bad people historically. Don’t refer to them, ESPECIALLY I HISTORICAL CONTEXT, as ‘cinnamon rolls’. They were misogynists against the rights of women and minorities. Don’t forget that, no matter how much you like their characters. The Jefferson you like is portrayed by a black Jew; the Jefferson in history was a racist with a history of sexual assault and a slavery apologist.
•KEEPING THAT IN MIND, personality-wise, what we get from the musical is a little murky. Peggy is a great example of this. Fanon Peggy is very outspoken, sarcastic and a typical millenial. In the musical, she’s shy, hides behind her older sisters and very cautious. This is because of the fact that a) Peggy’s vocals are only apparent in one song through listening alone and b) historically Peggy was very similar to fanon Peggy. THIS DOESN’T MATTER. PORTRAY THEM HOWEVER YOU THINK SUITS BEST. Don’t let the musical force you to make Eliza’s main trait be ‘nice’. For all you Laurens stans out there, it’s okay to let him have interests other than art, turtles and Hamilton. Feel free to give them depth, complexities, flaws. Not only is it fucking refreshing amongst the collection of bland chatfics and high school AUs that seem to reduce each character to a single trait, it’s good for original character practice as well.
•THE SCHUYLER SISTERS get their own section. If you’re doing something historical, remember that they had other siblings. It’s generally agreed that Angelica and Eliza were closest, but Angelica and Peggy and Eliza and Peggy are shown in the musical as being close too (see Angelica dancing with Peggy and hugging her in Satisfied, and Peggy helping Eliza put away her letters and being dragged along with her in Helpless and The Schuyler Sisters). Sometimes it seems that fics reduce them to plot devices, minor characters or love interests; I won’t go all 'SJW!1!1!1’ on you but they are their own people as well, and flesh them out. (This problem is not as common in artwork, since art of them tends to focus on them either as a trio or Satisfied and Helpless companion pieces starring Angelica and Eliza.) Also, fun fact that this fandom seems to have overlooked - all three of them could play instruments.
-REVOLUTIONARY SET AND DEMOCRATIC REPUBLICANS. Things to remember include Madison and Hamilton being friends before Jefferson showed up, Jefferson and Lafayette being close, Mulligan historically being Hamilton’s biggest hypeman (oh, I wish I was kidding) and Laurens and Lafayette being close friends. As for Burr, he’s traditionally relegated to the strange outsider by the fandom. This is more of a personal view, but Burr started off as a member of the Revolutionary Set, and progressed into a Democratic Republican, and this fandom likes to forget that.
-THEODOSIA JR. Theodosia is never seen, only mentioned, which basically means everything about her is fanon. Literally. The only confirmed thing about her are her parents. This means Theodosia is good for inserting an audience-type character into; she’s an empty vessel, essentially, so anything you do to her involves zero fact checking. BEAR IN MIND that Theodosia is usually shipped with Philip, and that some members of the fandom will have expectations of her. Ignore those people. Theodosia is a shell of an OC, so as long as you don’t murder her in childhood or something, there’s no real discourse you have to be wary of. (Apart from Philip/Theodosia discourse, which is apparently a thing? But there’s discourse in practically every ship, so by all means, ignore that too.)
•UNMENTIONED/UNSEEN CHARACTERS. I’m talking Ben Franklin, John Adams, James Monroe, Governor Clinton, them. John Adams appears to be universally hated, John Jay is often used as a filler or plot device, and the others are just used as names. Don’t bother about continuity with them.

-SOME COMMON AU IDEAS
•High School/College Modern AU. This is a big one. There are flaws in it, namely romanticising too much and relegating major characters to 'minor’ status, but it’s so widely used that it’s good to know if you’re new here.
•Modern Government/Law AU. Another big one. Not as commonly used because ugh, research and maturity, but there’s a massive pro to them - more complex themes and 'child’ characters can be added because the main lot are usually older. My personal favourite.
•Chatroom AU. What it sounds - no real fic, just usernames and text speak. Good for laughs or plain fights, but bad for complex emotion, fluff, angst, or major plot. Also, they clog up the tags of less major ships, especially on AO3.
•Soulmate AU. A variety of soulmate AUs exist, but essentially boil down to having some kind of matching mark, etc. Amazing for angst, fluff, plot and character development, but not so great for humour or multi-chapter fics.
•Domestic AUs. Exactly as they sound. Massive fluff traps, no real substance but they’re amazing if you’ve had a shitty day and need something to cheer you up. Fan favourite.

So there you go! Everything you need to know if you’re entering the Hamilton fandom, give or take a few things. Don’t bash ships, don’t romanticise them too much, and take Ron Chernow’s content with a pinch of salt (he’s known for 'not finding’ easily accessible content regarding the women of the Hamilverse). Good luck!

evan headcanons
- he sleeps with stuffed animals still. jared makes fun of him for it but we all know damn well that jared still sleeps with stuffed animals too
- he’s really good with kids. like, really good. sometimes to fulfill service requirements for school he goes to work w his mom and spends time w the kids on the pediatric floor. he HATES hospitals but he would die for those kids
- evan sleeps w his windows open at all times of the year. hurricane-force winds? check. sub-zero temps? yup. he likes the sounds and the fresh breeze. plus his meds make him overheat constantly so what’s inhumanly cold to others is a perfect temp for him to snuggle into his blankets
- he barely ever sees his dads family, but when he does their little yappy dog is always around. the dog is RUDE and hates literally everyone except for evan. evan takes a certain pride in this.
- he keeps so many half filled notebooks in the drawers under his bed. he likes to write descriptions of nature to calm himself down; it kind of works as meditation for him. heidi knows the writing is there but she’s not one to snoop.
- when he’s anxious (always) evan has trouble eating. to combat starvation he drinks a shit ton of chocolate milk.
- before his dad left the hansen fam went to disney world & when he met mickey evan cried. there’s a photographic record. jared also will not let this go

There was a little bit more to the panties ficlet that I got rid of because it was just??? exposition but I’ll let you guys have it:

-

“Pick whatever you want,” Viktoria said, waving her Black AmEx and smirking before she unleashes a wide-eyed Yuri on the petite section of Tsum’s. Viktoria has spent the last three days coming up behind Yuuri and murmuring, “Isn’t this cute?” while showing Yuri a picture of a Prada or Dolce and Gabbana or Gucci. Yuri keeps scrolling and seeing the four-figure price tag and every time she does, her eyes go unfocused in the middle distance like she’s having just a small crisis. 

Maybe she’ll adjust better to the three-figure price tags in the department store.

Viktoria follows Yuri at a distance, watching her pull dresses off the rack, bite her lip and put them back. After about half an hour of this, Viktoria wants to throttle her. Just a little.

“Birdie,” Viktoria coos, squeezing her from behind. She has already chosen three pairs of jeans and two dresses. Yuuri has a singular headband in her hand. They’ve been through three floors of the five-floor department store, and the top floor is furniture. Viktor plans to go there anyway, because their current sofa is nowhere near big enough for two full-grown women and a dog, but they won’t find any cute clothes for Yuri there. “Go ahead and choose something! Whatever it is, we can afford it. Believe me.” The number of zeros on the check from Viktoria’s last sponsorship was a bit alarming, and she would like nothing more than to spend at least half of those zeros on Yuri.

“Why don’t you just choose something?” Yuri mumbles into Viktoria’s arms, gripping at her hands. “I’m bad at this, and it’s obviously important to you.”

“Because I want you to feel good about yourself,” Viktoria murmurs. “Not because I judge you for your fashion choices. Well, maybe a little, but if you really enjoyed them, I’d suffer. But I don’t think you do.” She sucks a loud kiss onto Yuri’s neck. “Yuri! Let me make you pretty.”

Yuri laughs and says, “Then make me pretty! I’ll be your doll, Vika. Dress me up. I’ll tell you if I hate what you choose. Okay?”

“Really?” Viktoria mumbles, eyes going wide because suddenly her entire brain is inundated with visions of Yuri, smokey-eyed, fulfilling her great potential as the world’s most heartbreakingly gorgeous model. Yuri needs at least six floral A-Line dresses in soft shades of blue and green and grey, she needs three different bathing suits to correlate to how conservative the country they’re in is, she needs jeans that actually fit her, she needs blouses that accentuate her curves instead of hiding them because Viktoria is going to scream if she has to go one more day without seeing Yuuri’s waist, she needs crop tops.

There is a dress from this seasons’ Chanel spring collection that Viktoria needs to see her in or she will physically die.

“Really,” Yuri says, patting Viktoria’s hands. “So, bring me my choices.”

“Yes, yes, yes!” Viktoria scrambles.

Yuri sits on a plush chair in front of the changing rooms while Viktoria brings her outfit after outfit, regal like a queen being made offering, and Viktoria feels alive

As Viktoria is paying, Yuri wanders off to regions unseen and returns with a very, very small bag over her arm. Viktoria tries to see inside it, but Yuri slaps her hand away.

“I’ll show you later,” Yuri says, and slides the bag into her own purse. Viktoria, despite herself, forgets about it.

simliishtrash  asked:

Why Sophia why did you do this?!?!? Why would Matty want to talk to Zero if he was gonna pull this bs!?!?! ZATTY can never be great huh 😯😢😧

LISTEN MATTY ISN’T STUPIDsdkjFHSKDJF. HE FUCKING KNEW IMMEDIATELY THAT ZERO WAS THERE AND WAS JUST BLATANTLY HIDING FROM HIM. HE WAS 15 MINUTES “LATE” WORK AND MATT WAS THERE AT LEAST 30 MINS BEFORE HE HAD TO CLOCK IN WHICH MEANS ZERO SEEN MATT FROM OUTSIDE AND JUST HAULED ASS. 

MATT WAS LIKE: “OHHH OKAYYYYYYYYY.. ALL OF THISSSSSS???? I SEE HOW IT IS THEN.”

HONESTLY HE WAS FUCKING INSULTED AND IT ANNOYED HIM TO THE POINT WHERE HE DIDN’T EVEN WANT TO STICK AROUND TO CALL HIS BLUFF. THAT’S NOT SAYING HE GOT THE BLOW JOB OUT OF SPITE BECAUSE HE DIDN’T.. THERE WAS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR HIM TO GET HIS PENIS TREATED SO HE ACTED ACCORDINGLY. THEY ARE NOT FUCKING DATING SO HE CAN DO AS HE PLEASES ESPECIALLY WHEN ZERO IS PLAYING HIDE AND SEEK. MATT SHOWED UP TO THE COMIC SHOP TO TALK TO ZERO BECAUSE HE CHECKED HIMSELF AND REALIZED HE WAS OUT OF LINE THE LAST TIME THEY SPOKE SO HE WANTED TO BRING ATTENTION TO THAT AND APOLOGIZE OR AT LEAST TO FEEL ZERO OUT AND MAKE AN ATTEMPT TO RESOLVE EVERYTHING.

 AT THIS POINT ZERO IS JUST STOPPING HIMSELF FROM GETTING DEMON DICK AND NO ONE ELSE.

foxpaws10  asked:

I check your blog obsessively and ive just realised I don't actually know a lot about you ? Like, what are your hobbies, what do you look forward to at the end of the day, what shows do you watch, do you support any sports teams, what food would you kill a man for, what's your favourite animal(s) , what music do you listen to, any inside jokes with your friends, what's your family like, what's a normal day like for you , do you have any nicknames, what are you attracted to in a person ? xx

wow if you want me to instantly fall in love with you ask me strange and wonderful personal questions and also compliment my blog like… uh….. 😍

I guess I’ll take this one question at a time?? I hope that’s okay? what’s the protocol for talking about myself is this thing on

hobbies: lots of artsy obnoxious stuff I love writing & reading & playing piano/flute/guitar/uke/singing & painting & acting I basically only use one side of my brain tbh

I look forward to: putting my hair up which seems weird but I have so much of it and my favourite moment in the day is tying it back and feeling like my brain is free?? I also look forward to cracking a coke zero and checking my notes on tumblr.com and uhhh napping

shows: holy shit…… all. of them. recently I’ve been catching up on sense8, the get down, skam s4, brooklyn 99, voltron. plus I always adore x-files and buffy. I’ve had the obligatory teen wolf phase, doctor who phase, shameless US phase… got dumped headfirst into haikyuu and yoi last year, etc etc 

sports teams: i don’t know anything!!!! literally nothing!!! I respect their right to have that ball and do that running but i.. super don’t care. also here in saskatchewan everyone’s like football!!! hockey!!! football!!! hockey!!!! and im honestly just here to watch a guy get punched on ice

food to kill for: fresh homemade bread my guy……. better than anything on this earth….. also some really good nachos?? yeah. cheesecake?? ye S. thai food? YES

favourite animal: okay don’t laugh……. it’s a fox it’s been a fox since I was eight years old

music: it’s very um eclectic. tame impala & panic! & altj & decemberists & lorde & top & arcade fire & sufjan stevens & mother mother & the mountain goats & frank ocean & the front bottoms & mac demarco & hayley kiyoko bc I am gay and punk and trying too hard but ALSO so many soundtracks! httyd & cloud atlas & sinbad are some of the best scores ever devised by man. so many musicals. lately more bts than you would……….. believe

Inside jokes: idk where to begin w the shit me and ben talk about but I’ll tell you that my group chat was called ‘omega too god’ for a while bc my friend misspelled ‘omg too good’

family: just very good. I’m so ludicrously lucky. my parents are accepting and silly and delightful – doctors & part-time musicians & full-time good people. Both my brothers are big weirdos and I love & fear them. James writes music and talks way too much about sci-fi or board games or astronomy or w/e & his mouth gets him into sooo much trouble. Stubborn as FUCK & won’t hecking listen to me but he means so well. Chris is a real certified genius I’m not joking his IQ is well above 160 and he just turned down the opportunity to go to Oxford or Cambridge for his masters in physics bc he’s focusing on research?? i guess? He’s good at everything but he’s also humble and sweet and strange and fumbling (I’m so proud of him I can’t see straight)

A normal day for me: right now it’s summer and I haven’t landed a job yet so it goes: get up LATE, go for coffee with a friend or my mom, have a lil walk, do some writing, sometimes I go volunteer at the LGBT2+ community centre where my buddy works & look after some youth, make some food, run some errands, learn lots. maybe go out in the evening, maybe retreat to my cave and write some more until it gets dark and I remember to eat. collapse into sleep at 3 am

nicknames: my family calls me Meg or Megs! dad used to call me Meggie Muffin but we don’t gotta talk about that. my name is boring and difficult to adapt wcyd

attracted to: good talkers. sweethearts who are free w affection and good vibes. sense of humour is critical bc I like to be surprised & heard & laugh. people who are accepting and genuinely kind are definitely the hottest people. if they’re smart musicians w curly hair or smth that’s a bonus 😎

jack loves spoiling his boyfriend rotten.

having been with bitty for a few months now already and been friends with him for even longer, he knows that bitty can get a little uncomfortable when jack starts spending too much on him.

so he takes every opportunity he gets to put them in situations where they’ll get fined.

he wants bitty to be happy. and he knows that bitty is the happiest when he’s baking and taking care of the people he loves. so why not kiss and cuddle with bitty in front of their friends? they know and are happy for them. and he gets to indirectly fund bitty’s trips to the grocery stores.

as far as jack’s concerned, what matters most to him is his boyfriend’s happiness and wellbeing. and through the sin bin he can still be part of the haus. he could still be part of his friends’ lives, even when he’s an hour away in providence.

so jack visits the haus as often as possible, and he kisses and kisses bitty, and encourages the pet names in front of his friends. it makes him happy. it makes bitty happy.

and, as an added bonus, it keeps his boys well-fed.

(and clean. wait a few more kisses for that dryer, dex.)
