there is nothing better than these photos

art tips post

for all the artists following me

  • draw fast. it’ll look messy for a long time but you’ll improve faster than if you spend 4 hours on every drawing
  • if you draw in pencil and have a habit of erasing all of your mistakes, try drawing in pen or marker. i know it’s scary but it’ll help in the long run (i’m speaking from experience)
  • try different methods and mediums but don’t worry about mastering any of them, just have fun
  • if you’re not rich, buy art supplies from the dollar store, not the art store (seriously. i go through a sketchbook about once a month and i’d rather spend $4 on one than $15)
  • there’s no wrong way to learn. you can copy other people’s art if you want to, just don’t post it
  • DO NOT worry about having a consistent style. do not. just draw however you want
  • if you want to make original characters then do it. don’t worry about if they’re original, or a good design, or if they have an accompanying story. make sonic ocs. do it. it’s fun and it’s not hurting anyone
  • try not to kill your back. stand up and stretch once in a while
  • make a folder and save all of your favorite arts for inspiration 
  • draw from life. draw your dog. draw your teachers. draw your desk. draw your own hands (seriously that’s the best way to get better at drawing hands)
  • in general, drawing from life or a photo is better than drawing from a diagram
  • draw whatever you want. draw youtubers if you like youtubers. draw undertale if you like undertale. when i was a kid i drew nothing but shadow the hedgehog and horses. everyone deserves to draw what they want without being mocked, and if people start making fun of you, block them and keep drawing
  • don’t expect to get any notes at first. don’t let it discourage you. if you want validation go show your art to your mom or your friends or your teacher or your grandma
  • take breaks, but don’t give up.
in perspective, a timeline of dan's growth:
  • 2009: he was affectionate with phil, had low self esteem though and got little views
  • 2010: makes innuendos, only about girls though, laughs and jokes but still has obvious low moments of self loathe
  • 2011: ignores anything regarding his sexuality, very guarded as his subscribers grow
  • 2012: even more retreated, gay is not a word in his vocabulary despite all the phan shippers
  • 2013: careful not to get too close to phil, still wears dark "men's" clothing, nothing feminine, doesn't want to stand out
  • 2014: makes gaming channel with phil, still reluctant to bring up any topic regarding a relationship, constantly in all black but doing better
  • 2015: "im phil trash #1", acknowledges and writes a borderline romantic phanfic, owns haru pillow, goes on holidays with phil and seems happy
  • 2016: wears black nail polish, openly talks about his man crush, explores fashion, happier than ever
  • 2017, four months in: wears black ripped skinny jeans, paints his nails with glitter polish, makes a pastel themed video with phil and posts several coupley photos, makes gay innuendos every sentence, radiates confidence, personal space what's that???

So in class i was looking up cryptids for a project and I got way more than a nice essay-worthy article. Underneath a mothman article was this:

Lance dressed up as a Yeti for Keith’s attention. Nothing can convince me otherwise.

The Signs as Emotions People Feel But Can’t Explain
  • Aries: "Kuebiko - A state of exhaustion inspired by acts of senseless violence." Aries that are provoked by the smallest things if it’s about something they believe in, that will do anything and everything to fight for what’s right, that will exhaust their physical and mental energy for anything and everything they deem precious to them.
  • Taurus: "Chrysalism - The amniotic tranquility of being indoors during a thunderstorm." Taurians that can fall asleep to the sound of light rain and yet be most productive to dark clouds and thunder and heavy rainfall, that feel most relaxed seeing raindrops against windowpanes and the ground.
  • Gemini: "Sonder - The realization that each passerby has a life as vivid and complex as your own." Geminis that can go throughout their day without thinking twice about the person next to them, but can meet eyes with a stranger and imagine, without even trying, their entire lives, from the glaringly obvious to the most miniscule details.
  • Cancer: "Liberosis - The desire to care less about things." Cancers that wear their hearts and their innermost emotions on their sleeves, that care about everyone they meet even when they don’t want to; the sheer amount of emotion they have may overwhelm them and even when they say they don’t care, some part of them still does.
  • Leo: "Anecdoche - A conversation in which everyone is talking, but nobody is listening" Leos that speak because they have so much on their mind, that want to get everything out and want people to listen, that hear other people but are already itching to speak, and they’re already thinking of what to say next even as they speak.
  • Virgo: "Énouement -The bittersweetness of having arrived in the future, seeing how things turn out, but not being able to tell your past self" Virgos that rush through life to get to the next stage, to get better, that eventually reach their goal and realize that this isn’t even what they wanted in the first place, and now all they want is to slow down, to start over and think less, enjoy more, live with no regrets.
  • Libra: "Occhiolism - The awareness of the smallness of your perspective." Libras that can be in the center of a crowd, can be in the middle of a conversation and suddenly shut down mentally because they’ve just realized something huge, that will listen to someone else speak even while their minds are racing, already on the way to stumbling across some profound discovery.
  • Scorpio: "Adronitis - Frustration with how long it takes to get to know someone." Scorpios that love knowing people because they want to be needed, that want all of a person for themselves even if they don’t recognize it yet, that hate seeing someone being more friendly with someone else because that person is theirs, even if they don’t know it yet.
  • Sagittarius: "Onism - The frustration of being stuck in just one body, that inhabits only one place at a time." Sagittarians that want to see and feel and do and experience everything all at once, that freeze when they realize they can’t; the rhythm of life and the earth is in their blood and wanderlust is almost overpowering at times and they hate not being able to give into it.
  • Capricorn: "Ellipsism - A sadness that you’ll never be able to know how history will turn out." Capricorns that want to know as much as they can, that can place logic and reason and realism over emotion, that rationalize their emotions without thinking, and end up strangely saddened when they realize there is no answer.
  • Aquarius: "Vemödalen - The frustration of photographic something amazing when thousands of identical photos already exist." Aquarians that work hard because they want to be better than they already are, than what someone else can do, that can spend hours and days perfecting something they enjoy just to get that much better.
  • Pisces: "Exulansis - The tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it." Pisceans that can have whole worlds inside their heads, that can never explain things correctly because the right word just isn’t there, that know the words and can’t put them together because nothing sounds just right, that have been to places and seen things and done things and can’t share their experiences because words just aren’t enough.

Rumor Has It

“So rumor has it that you and Y/N have been dating for quite some time now. What can you tell me about that?” The reporter asked Jensen, taking him off guard. You’d been keeping your relationship a closely guarded secret. Only those closest to you knew. Neither of you wanted the attention it would bring, especially you. You were deathly afraid you would get a lot of negative feedback on the internet from his fans. 

You were a newcomer to the scene. Yes, you were his costar, but you weren’t always. And you weren’t always famous. You still didn’t consider yourself “famous.” A year ago you were just a fan who won a walk on role in a contest. The show ended up loving you and expanded your character’s role and kept you on. You and Jensen fell in love on set and the rest was history. 

“What?” Jensen chuckled, laughing at the question. “No…we’re really good friends but nothing more than that. No.” 

“My mistake.” The interviewer blushed, shuffling her papers. “It’s just…you’ve been spotted out together an awful lot. There are a lot of photos of the two of you holding hands and hugging. We just thought -” 

“It’s fine.” Jensen laughed it off, reassuring her everything was fine. “It’s an easy mistake to make. She really has become my best friend.” 

“And he’s my very best friend.” You said, walking up behind him and wrapping your arms loosely around his neck, resting your chin on his shoulder. “I couldn’t have asked for a better friend and mentor for this whirlwind of a year.” 

“Well, looks like our time here is up since they sent Y/N/N to come get you.” The interviewer chuckled. “It was nice meeting you both. I look forward to seeing your upcoming scenes.” 

As soon as she was gone Jensen turned to you and pulled you into his lap, kissing you passionately. “That was close.” 

You hummed in response, resting your forehead against his. “It was. But I think she bought your cover story.” 

“I think we should tell everyone.” Jensen blurted out. You started to protest and he immediately shushed you. “I know you’re scared but even if people do say shit, who cares? Everyone who matters loves you. I love you.” 

“Jensen I -” You started to say something and stuttered, unable to find the words. Jensen’s hands were rubbing up and down your arms to calm your nerves and you took a deep breath, nodding your head. “Ok. Let’s do it.” 

Jensen’s face lit up and he pulled his phone out, extending his arm out to take the selfie he intended to post. He leaned in to kiss you again and you heard the camera noise go off, giggling into the kiss. 

@jensenackles: Between scene kisses w/ the girlfriend @realy/n. (Rumors were true. Sorry EW Mag!) 

As soon as he hit post he shoved his phone back in his pocket and stopped you from pulling yours out to read the comments. “No.” He grabbed your hands when you went for it. “It doesn’t matter.”

“How did I get so lucky?” You questioned, leaning your forehead back against his. 

“You have low standards.” He smirked and you burst into laughter, grabbing his face in both hands and pulling him back for another heated kiss.

Plow Me

Because I’m self indulgent

In my defense, @secretschuylersister started it [And yes, it is based off of The Tag, her Legendary tag, id you could not tell by the title]

Lin x reader (I think? I mean, it kind of turned out more Daveed x readerish. I was thinking that if people actually like this, I might do a second part and put more Lin in it… Unless y’all want it to be a Daveed fic? That works too.)

Warnings: probably OOCish characters (Taylor included? Not sure if she swears… Never mind yes she does) Sexual references, hardcore shipping, fangirl Daveed, some swearing (okay, lots of swearing) - that’s it, I think

Confession time: I was the anon who sent in the idea for the plow me fic when the other anon requested it in a prompt

I have no regrets

Summary: The Hamilcast finds out about something that they maybe shouldn’t have

Special thanks to @timeforhamilton who let me send this for her for advice and encouraged me to keep going, @secretschuylersister for answering my questions for “research” and @on-written-wings for her oh-so-helpful Industrial Revolution list! If you haven’t met any of them, check them out! They’re all awesome! :)

Words: 2188, I believe


“You’re joking.”

“Do it.”


“But why not?” Daveed pressed.

“Because it’s creepy!” Anthony defended. “Why would I look up Lin?”

“Trust me, the results are very amusing.”

“How exactly would you know that, Diggs?”

“I’ll give you three guesses… And ten dollars if you do it.”

Anthony sighed, folding under the promise of money for his troubles.

Daveed grinned, letting out a fist pump into the air.

“The things I do for you people…” Anthony breathed, even as he pulled his laptop closer to him, Google already getting up and running.

His fingers began to lazily drift over the keys, but after a few seconds, they stopped, a smirk curling on his face as his eyebrows lifted further.

“Oh, Diggs, you were right.”

“Why? What’d you find?” Daveed asked eagerly, moving so he could see the screen, eager for the scoop on something he might’ve missed.

Sitting there, all too innocently in the search bar, were the unfinished words Lin-Manue.

In the drop down list of frequent searches just below it, from the bottom up, it went lin-manuel miranda net worth, lin-manuel miranda drunk history, lin-manuel miranda moana, lin-manuel miranda, and, at the very top of the list, securing it’s spot as the most searched topic with his name on it, lin-manuel miranda plow me.

The two shared a mischievous look, devious grins slowly growing on their faces.

It took all of two seconds for them to silently agree, and immediately afterwards, Anthony had furiously clicked the first option, repeatedly doing so until the next page had loaded.

Scrolling down, he murmured, “So, Tumblr is the blue void from whence this came, eh? Let’s see if we can find out where this started…”

Hey! idk if you normally use a filter or not but either way would you be ok with posting a pic of your new hair colour in natural light? I have brown hair too and I've been thinking of dyeing it a fun colour but I don't wanna bleach it, & I was wondering how well Manic Panic shows up on natural hair owo

It completely depends on your natural hair colour and hair type, sometimes the colour is nothing more than a tint. With my hair it starts as quite bright but after a few washes it’s sometimes only a tint and after a few more washes it’s gone. Dark tones tend to work better on brown hair than let’s say yellows and neons but don’t let that stop you from experimenting!

This is pretty much what my hair looked like the day I dyed it. (This wasn’t taken in natural light but it shows the colour as it is. I’d take a new photo outdoors but my hair needs washing and that would fade the colour which in turn would defeat the purpose of taking the photo in the first place.) It has since turned into a slightly deeper purple with a hint of red but it’s still very noticeably purple.

Manic Panic has been around for so long that there’s loads of discussion and pictures on Google on what the different colours are like on natural hair. Obviously, the lighter your hair is the better the colours show. There’s also loads of other semi-permanent colours you can use on virgin hair if Manic Panic doesn’t work for you, but I just tend to go for Manic Panic because it’s the only one that actually stays in my hair. (For example, Directions made a huge mess and just kept coming off on everything all the time and Stargazer washed off immediately.) If you have trouble finding info on the best ways to dye natural hair with whichever brand you end up using, try doing a Google and Google Images searches with terms like “Manic Panic on virgin hair” and “Manic Panic unbleached hair” for the best results.
Also: Did you know you can dye your hair with Kool Aid? I’ve never tried it but it seems to work quite well.

Hope this helps and good luck! (:

Because it is Monday & I would like nothing better than to go back to bed & wait for it to stop being Monday… here is Eddie looking sleepy & cuddly. Whose Monday wouldn’t be cheered by this? 

*Photo from Vanity Fair, February 2015.

Okay so I know it’s been awhile since my WINGS fansign but my life is in shambles and I’m going one day at a time lol so here it is

I arrived at the fansign early this time…thank god lol and legit picked the pages that the members were gonna sign right before. I don’t know if it was a coincidence or what but they happened to sit in the perfect order since I picked different photos from all 4 albums for each member to sign and the members who shared the same album were sitting together lol I also wrote my name down (Kat 누나) so that they would know what to write. Namjoon I didnt put Noona. It didnt seem right since I knew we would just be speaking english to each other.

Anyway I went in and took my seat. I was in the middle second row. Pretty good. Once again it was like 99% fansites lol It seems many fansites work in at least a pair. One takes pictures while the other uploads previews to twitter. Or while one is getting their album signed they will point to their camera/fansite coworker so that the member will wave or act cute for their specific camera.

So right when I sat down one of the fansites behind me tapped me on the shoulder and started speaking korean. I told her I didnt speak korean and in the most fluent english I have ever done heard she asked if we could switch seats. Obviously she wanted to get closer; who wouldn’t. She said she would take pictures of me with the members while I was up there if we could switch bless her soul. And honestly in my mind one row further back meant nothing to me so I said yes and gave her my email, honestly going on faith lol

I was so nervous to meet them again. Seeing them so close and in such a comfortable setting for them surrounded by fansites that they know so well. But I felt better than last time. i think i just had more time to get my brain under control lol and I was talking to my friends in my GC the whole time this time and it kept me light and calm. Bless them

So the fansite was true to her word and she sent me 75 HD photos of me talking with the boys. Unfortunately she did not get me with Hobi or Jin, but oh well, life goes on. i assume another member was being extra adorable and she had to stop to photograph it. Don’t blame her.

So Jhope was first and he was so bright and smiley (they all seemed in a super good mood tbh) He asked me where I was from. i told him America…then LA just to keep things simple (I am from LA originally gosh dangit) He got super excited and said that he loves LA. I told him that I loved his Intro and he rapped a small part of it and danced a little lol I asked him about this abs and he laughed and touched his stomach and said thank you. I asked if he still had them and he said no…suuuuuuure

Tae was next. Just like last time he was so shocked by my name Kat. He kept asking if it was my real name. i just insisted it was lol I’m assuming he was thinking of the animal and was shocked that I was named after cats lol I mentioned that I had a lot of friends who came to Korea to see them. Then for a friend I asked him what perfume he wore. He was very cute and acted like he couldn’t recall the name. i know he was just messing with me though and didnt want to tell me. The lady came over and told me to move and he pretended to be all panicked. I asked him to write the answer on the post it note but he just wrote some random lines lol and then I had to move on that jerk. I’ve included 3 Tae pics because his face during this exchange was too great

Jin was next. He’s so handsome and so put together. I told him I was worried about him going to the jungle. He asked me if there were lions or bears or tigers in the jungle. I said no to all and he said then I shouldn’t worry. He was really funny and I wish I could properly express over text the way he said it all. It was so cute cuz he kept pausing to think of how to say the animals in english. His english is honestly really good.

Next was Jimin that shy little angel. Even though the album for him to sign was right on top as I had intended he moved it and went through all 4 before I picked it up and gave him the right one lol he was so shy and flustered. He signed my album and then looked up to start talking to me, then suddenly he looked back down at my album with a shocked expression. He quickly added a noona after my name. He also drew a little cat which I love cuz sometimes I draw a little cat after my name too. But just the way his face looked when he realized he should add noona. He was so scandalized that he hadn’t haha He was also the only one to actually write noona. I’m dead. He then went on to point out one of my rings which is kind of his style. Then he pointed to one of his and said that his ring was bigger than mine. I said yes but my hand is bigger than his so he held his hand up to compare and he just died inside when my hand was bigger lolol he laughed shyly and then it was over lol

Next was Yoongi. He was very quiet; didnt talk much at all. I told him that i was from LA and he said that he likes LA. I told him I saw him at KCON and I would be going to Muster. I also told him that we would win daesang and he just smiled slightly and nodded (little did he know) Even though he didnt talk much he held my hand almost the whole time as if to show his appreciation. Even though he didnt seem like he wanted to talk english with me I felt appreciated and that he was interested in what I was saying the whole time.

Jungkook was next and oh lord was he so cute. He was in such a good mood. He said hello in korean and I said hello in English and his face lit up. He said “oh! English! ok!” Like he was super ready to speak english. Our conversation:

Me: You’re really excited today!

Kookie: …..

Me: LOL You’re really happy!

Kookie: Yes! Happy!

(He signed my album then…lol)

Kookie: Today………today….today… … I am happy

It was so cute. He wanted to speak english so bad but just couldn’t get the words happening. But he was smiling and bouncing in his seat the whole time bless him. I just died from his cuteness

Last was Namjoon. At this point I was super proud of myself for having survived through all the members and all the language barrier. Namjoon was next and I was like OK! relief! You got this! He was super nice. He asked me about where I was from. How long i had been in Korea. He joked that my korean must be really good by now. He told me to be careful of the cold. It was small talk but he was so nice and charming. Then we were done..It was the end. The lady had come to tell me to move it along and then as if an after thought…as if he just wanted to let me know he said “You’re really attractive”…

And I died. I put my head down I was so shocked. But then I told him “No, you’re really attractive!” Pretty sure I was laughing a lot at this point lol and just so shy and then the lady came back and was like girl for real go lolol

It was like Namjoon knew I was way too chill. I had done much too well. He had to end me.

That’s pretty much it. Everything after is probably stuff you’ve already seen circulating twitter and tumblr. Tae playing the piano and playing with a yoyo. Jimin stickering people. Jin singing part of his solo song. It was the last fansign for wings and it just felt like such a happy and great time. All the members were in a great mood and I was in a great mood, and I was also dead.

I forgot to mention that I did hold all of their hands! lol 

Thanks for being so patient guys!!!
