there was really no reason for this set

When I was looking for a therapist, my mom decided to help me find one. I should have known this was a mistake.

She found her “therapist friend” who is “really good”. It’s super unethical and not professional at all for someone who knows your mom of all people to be your therpaist, to even offer it is absurd. She was really trying to set things up but I finally told her firmly that I wasn’t comfortable seeing a therapist, to talk about my intense emotional trauma, who is friends with my damn mom.

She let up with that but she had sent me a link to this woman’s page.

This “therapist” focuses on shit like auras and spiritual healing. She has a cat in her office, which at first sounded reasonable. Therapists have animals sometimes in their office for calming purposes…

…. until I read that the cat is there because he gives off “healing energy”.

Bruh lol

anonymous asked:

is there any way to order prints of your pokemon pictures?

There will be! I printed a small initial set for a con here but I’m all out of those and I need to improve slightly before ordering more.

I also need to figure out how I’ll do it, if I’ll use an online print-on-demand site or just order and ship them myself. I like a local printing company here as they offer super reasonable prices and I really appreciate the quality of the paper and the print, but then I’d have to see how much those shippable poster pipes cost and calculate shipping for them.

Anyway, stay tuned, there will be prints in the future! If you have any suggestions and/or insight in there matters you can message me!

Also, if you personally are interested in buying prints (either A2 or A1) please like this message so I can gauge interest a little bit!


anonymous asked:

Do you have a favorite cast?

from the casts i’ve seen live, probably nothing will ever top the 2013/2014 west end cast for me (willemijn, savannah, jeremy), since they pretty much started my love affair with wicked (灬♥ω♥灬) but also willemijn wowed me with her voice again this year so it’s not a one-off (my friend laughed at how open-mouthed i was during defying gravity — even though she should have been watching will and not me!!!).

other than that, i don’t really have a set favourite cast but i love a ton of actors for a mixture of reasons. just off the top of my head, stephanie j. block & eden espinosa as elphies / katie rose clarke, alli mauzey & carrie st. louis as glindas / kyle dean massey as fiyero (probably more but look i don’t watch wicked for fiyero) / deedee magno hall & catherine charlebois as nessa / robb sapp as boq.

(this was fun hehe thank you for asking! (´∀`)♡)

A Note on Reblogging (Your Own Fic/Art/Stuff/Etc.)

Look, here’s the deal with tumblr: it moves fast. A lot of people follow enough blogs that scrolling through one’s entire dash is impossible. I remember the days when I could wake up in the morning and scroll back to the last post I saw before bed. Sweet, summer child.

Here’s the other deal with tumblr: I see so much anxiety about reblogging one’s own stuff, be it art; analysis; fanfiction; hell, personal posts and replies. I have (and continue to feel deeply) that anxiety. Every time, my inner critic and I go through the same song and dance.

Critic: You look like you’re begging for notes/replies/reblogs. People will think you’re needy/full of yourself/have to be the center of attention. You already have a few notes, why do you need more? Other people have it worst than you. Ugh, you’re just clogging the dashes of your followers. If they wanted to read it, they’d have read it already.

Me: *ball of anxiety* You’re right. Wait, no you’re not. Wait, maybe you are. Wait, no—

I’d say it’s 50/50, even now, that I’ll reblog myself. 

And you know what? Fuck that. 

  • Not everyone can get through their dash in a sitting.
  • Timezones are a thing.
  • Work hours are a thing, also affected by timezones.
  • Life away from tumblr is a thing (what??? I know).

There are so many reasons a person might not see your fic/art/stuff the first time. Reblog it the next day. Reblog it a week from now. Hell, set up a schedule or a queue and have it reblog itself three months from now. Go back through old fics and reblog the ones you really liked; I guarantee you have followers who are new enough to have never seen it or who would like to reread it.

Be proud of the work you do.

Oh yeah, I felt that resistance from here.

Say it again. Out loud. Write it on a post-it note and stick it where you’ll see it.

Be proud of the work you do.

You wrote/made it for a reason. And yeah, part of that reason was probably to share it with other fans. Otherwise, why post at all? I know. Man, I get it. I’m cringing even writing that. The fucked-up “don’t show off” mentality runs deep, right?

Fuck that, too.

If you have followers who unfollow you because you’re reposting your stuff (and this is hard to prove, remember; maybe they quit tumblr, maybe their interests diverged from yours, whatever), who cares? Let them go. For everyone who leaves you, many will stay. And many will be happy to see that thing they missed because of work, life, sleeping. Especially if you follow a few points of tumblr/dash etiquette:

  • Use cuts/read mores for anything longer than a few hundred words (I tend to cut at about 400-500 words, though if something’s under about 700 I might leave it).
  • Reblog at reasonable intervals (day/evening, next day reblog, etc. Hourly might be a bit much ;D).
  • Use tags so people can filter appropriately.

Be proud of the work you do.

(Write it down. Yes, you. <3)

How to Love Yourself More

1. Set aside some time to think through why you feel you’re not good enough, or don’t deserve to be loved. Then actively counter each of those reasons. This is a really crucial step for you to take.

2. Make a list of at least 10 of your positive traits and strengths. Each day, add at least 2 more items to your list.

3. Commit to only saying positive and affirming things about yourself – that is, your face, your body, your personality, your abilities, and so on.

4. Each day, tell your body how much you appreciate it.

5. Hold your head high, smile, look people in the eye, and always speak slowly, and with confidence.

6. Have the courage to list and face some of the worst mistakes you’ve made, or some of the challenges you’ve found hard to overcome. Then, gently admit to yourself that you are not perfect. In fact, none of us is perfect, and we all start from different places in life. What has been hard for you may have been easy for someone else. Choose to not be so hard on yourself – forgive yourself for EVERYTHING and then just let it go!

7. Go through your closet and experiment with your clothes until you find something that you feel really good in. Choose to wear that – and to buy other outfits that make you feel good about yourself and your appearance. Get rid of clothes that lower your self-confidence or self-esteem.

8. Learn to listen to your body and mind, and treat what they are saying with kindness and respect. If you are tired, rest. If you are feeling worn down or emotionally drained, then withdraw and do something that will help to build you up.

9. Do something nice for yourself each day. Buy yourself some flowers, some new clothes, some music … or go for a jog, get your hair or nails done …. Whatever makes you feel pampered and special and loved.

10. Give yourself permission to say no to the things that make you unhappy, or that your energy.

winter-and-little-brunettes  asked:

Oooo, for the prompt thing, what about Lance talking to Keith in a quiet moment where the BoM and Voltron are actually in the same room about why Keith really left... Like, what was the 'other' part of the reason Keith left? Lance probably thinks it has something to do with hiiimmmmmmm

Lance sits in the common room with Keith next to him. Their knees touch slightly. Lance sighs and listens to the sounds of Hunk hovering over something in the kitchen and Pidge entering some numbers into her laptop. Shiro confers quietly on the other side of the room with Allura, Kolivan, and a couple of other blades. The setting is familiar. It’s comfortable. Lance smiles to himself and turns to murmur something quietly to Keith when he pauses.

Ah. Of course. 

Where he eyes should meet shades of red he only sees purple. He sighs. Reality comes crushing back.

“Yes?” Keith waits expectantly. Lance shakes his head. His hand gently reaches out to lower Keith’s hood. His fingertips brush against his pale cheek. 

“God, pull this down when you’re in here. Your cool, mysterious act fools no one.” Lance smirks. Keith pulls his face away with a pout.

“Just hiding my mullet from you.”

“You gonna try to grow it into a sweet braid?” Lance sneers. He nods over to where Kolivan stands. “Get a super long one like Kolivan and whip your enemies with it?” He moves his head in slow arcs like he’s in a shampoo commercial. Keith frowns… then caves. He smiles shyly.

“No, that would be a huge disadvantage. Enemies could grab me by it.”

“You should tie your knife to the end of it and just SCHWING! SCHWIP!”

Keith laughs at Lance’s sound effects. He can’t remember the last time he laughed like this. 

“Keith! Are you paying attention?” Kolivan turns over his shoulder. Imposing and serious as always. 

“Yes sir!” Keith sits up. Kolivan nods, then resumes talking to Shiro. 

“Jeez,” Lance scoots close so that their sides are against each other. His breath fans against Keith’s ear.

“No fun allowed.”

“You don’t get to be leader by telling jokes.” Keith chuckles. He lets his head turn and he realises how incredibly close he is to Lance. Lance’s expression is relaxed and looks at Keith with lidded eyes and a lazy smile.

“Are you having fun?”

“W….what?” Keith’s pulse starts to hammer. Had he been caught staring.

“With the blades. Are you having fun there?” Lance’s eyes narrow curiously. Keith relaxes. He doesn’t pull away when Lance slides his arm behind him on the couch. 

“Fun is… not the word I’d use…”

“Come back then.”

“I can’t…”

“Keith…”

“Lance…” Keith sighs. “I’m needed there.”

“We need you here.”

“No you don’t, I’m superfluous. We have six paladins and only five lions. Shiro is a better leader than me so…”

“So I’ll sit out!”

“No!” Keith suddenly reaches for Lance’s arm. He grips it tightly. His eyes look panicked. “No I don’t want that.”

Lance scowls. His mouth forms a hard line and he pulls his arm away. 

“Is that what this is all about?” His voice is dangerously low. “You leaving just so I get a lion?”

“No! No!” Keith shakes his head aggressively. “Lance I…”

“Please, Keith please don’t be the reason you left.” This time it’s Lance that initiates the contact. He gently touches Keith’s thigh. It’s warm. Keith heaves out a long sigh.

“Lance… you are much more important to this team then you realise.” Keith picks up his gaze and forces a smile. “That day… when you came to me and told me about how we need our best paladins to make our strongest team?” He huffs a humourless laugh. 

“I never doubted that you would be in a lion. You are one of our best, Lance. I said to not worry about it, because I knew that you would always be in a lion. Maybe not blue, maybe not even Red but…” Keith smiles. He puts his hand on top of Lance’s. Lance stares dumbstruck.

“You’ll always be needed in Voltron.” Keith smiles wider. 

“We need you too.” Lance leans closer. Keith shakes his head.

“I’m just a pilot. And good at stabbing things, but you…” Keith leans forward. He dares to cup lance’s cheek with his hand. Lance blushes up to his ears.

“Lance you do things that I could never do. You lift the team up. You’re good with plans and knowing when to fight and when to run. You keep this team together.”

“Then why can’t I keep you?”

Keith’s hand drops. He feels floored. Air escapes his lungs in a rush. He blinks several times as he tries to compose himself. As he tries to build up his walls again in the face of Lance’s brutal honesty.

“I didn’t leave so you could stay.” He swallows. “But I knew I could leave, because the team still had you and Shiro.”

Lance pouts. He’s not satisfied but he knows this isn’t the place to argue. He falls forward until his head thumps against Keith’s shoulder.

“Come back in one piece, you hear?”

Keith wraps his arms around Lance’s middle. He tries to burn the feel of his jacket, the warmth, the weight against his chest into his memory. He isn’t sure when the next time he’ll be able to do this again. 

“I will.”

Lance chuckles. It surprises Keith.

“I can’t believe you’re not embarrassed hugging me in front of your new dad.”

“He’s not my new dad.”

“But do you think he’ll yell at you if he sees you getting sentimental?”

Keith hums.

“Yeah, but I’ll fight him.” He chuckles and squeezes Lance tighter.

“My money’s on Kolivan.”

“Hey,”

“Dude, you’re tiny. Have you seen you with the other blades? It’s hilarious.” Lance laughs into Keith’s chest. It’s warm and rumbles pleasantly. Keith smiles and melts further into the couch. 

Office-mate who loves CNN but doesn't understand how televisions work is destroyed by that which she loves most.

I work in a small office with only 6 people. The way the office is broken up I share my office with another person, so we’re essentially facing each other. It’s away from the other offices, so we’re kind of left to our own devices. I’ve been working here for about three years now, and have always gotten along with my office-mate. My old office-mate left to start a family, so I’ve been alone for a bit before they hired Marge.

Marge is what you’d find if you googled “worst office-mate.” She brings in smelly food she eats at her desk, she plays loud music in our shared space (even after being asked not to), she fights with the boss on every little thing, she’s nosy (always asking me where I’ve been when I walk back into the office, and I’ve literally caught her listening in at the bosses door). She asks me invasive questions, and when I finally snapped at her to mind her own business she acted like I’d personally assaulted her.

K but in all honesty Tumblr sleeps on Ladyhawke so much

A) It was made in the 80s so every now and then (like in the beginning of the fucking movie) there’s really inappropriate synth/electric guitar music and slo mo shots and lens flares and it’s fucking delightful

B) It’s about a knight and a lady who fell in love but a creepy ass priest (of course) wanted her so I forget how he pulled it off but now she is a hawk by day and a lady by night (TITLE BUT WITH AN “E” ADDED IN THE END FOR NO REASON) and he’s a man by day and a wolf by night and they only see each other in their human forms for half a second when the sun is rising (or setting I guess) and it’s The Most Tragic Love Story Of Our Time

C) She’s stunning but not completely incompetent; he’s broody and badass and did I mention he turns into what amounts to a giant dog it’s like your boyfriend turns into Ghost what’s not to like

D) Yes Matthew Broderick is there and yes he doesn’t really fit the vibe but mostly he’s there to be you.  He’s there to be like “omg what a tragic love story I must help the otp” he’s there to be like “wow Michelle Pfeiffer’s face was carved by the gods and also she turns into a bird of prey how amazing” and he’s kind of a flop but you tolerate him, it’s the 80s, Ferris can stay

E) I forget exactly how the plot is resolved but let me assure you that it is as over the top and ridiculous as you’d expect, full of ominous church things

Watch it.  Live it.  LADYHAWKE.

Just Say It (Bill Skarsgard x Reader)

requested: Hi! Could you please do a Bill Skarsgard X Reader imagine? So (Y/N) played Roman’s (Bill’s character) best friend / crush in Hemlock Grove and after the show ends, they see each other in IT premiere because (Y/N) is accompanying her brother Jackson (Who plays Georgie). Just fluff and Bill and (Y/N) are in love but they don’t know and Jackson spills that they like each other. Thanks! Your works are amazing!

Word Count: 1576

Warnings: some mature language ?

A/N: Thank you so much for requesting, this is such a good idea!

There’s something scarily intoxicating about the acting industry. It’s like a siren beautifully singing to lure you closer and closer to the cliffs, waiting for a fatal collision. Yet (to her family’s dismay) it had affected Y/N - and now her little brother, Jackson. Their father had been a lawyer and their mother a teacher; both reliable jobs meant to procure a salary and stability. They had tried so hard to instill the idea of the American Dream and all that nonsense into their children.

Self-destruction must skip a generation, Y/N supposed.

Y/N had spent most of her acting career twiddling her thumbs as she waited for auditions and call backs that never came. She did her best to present everything good and unique about herself on resumes, but (nine times out of ten) not even that was good enough. It was disappointing to say the least and depressing to say the most. Initially, she didn’t want Jackson to pursue acting either. All the experiences he’d miss, like all the experiences she missed, could never be replaced. All the self deprecation and angst and the thoughts of ‘I’m not good enough’ - how in God’s name could she wish that upon her baby brother? But, as she sat in the backseat of a white limo, little Jackson sitting across from her, she acknowledged how wrong she had been. He was wearing such an expensive tuxedo, yet he was still pressing his nose to the window’s glass and making patterns with the fog. He wasn’t missing experiences - he was making them. Like a kid should.

It was her mother who first brought it all to light one evening over dinner, It wasn’t all bad, she had said after shoveling runny mashed potatoes onto her plate. And that was true; Y/N had played Odette Polinsky on Hemlock Grove. She was barely eighteen when she got the role and, though job single-handedly saved her career, yet it wasn’t even a completely positive memory.

Y/N was the youngest cast member on Hemlock Grove, and was completely (and pathetically) infatuated with a boy who saw her as nothing more as a friend. She had to witness the endless stream of girls come and go, as he conquered them and moved on.

“Did you talk to Ellie?” He whispered in Y/N’s ear during the show’s second season. He was leaning on his chair, with his elbow propping up his chin as he smiled boyishly. She tried to ignore the tingles as they ran down her spine, swallowing thickly. Ellie was his latest prize and she was constantly prancing around set in tube tops and denim short shorts. He followed her like a moth to a flame.

“Ya, I - I did. She really - likes you.” She managed to splutter out. Sometimes, when she was concentrating and focused, she could pretend conversations with him where just a scene. Their interactions all had a script, she would tell herself, therefore there’s no reason to panic. But this was not one of those days.

“Mmhmm,” he hummed as he scratched his chin with his thumb and index finger. He cocked his eyebrow at her and smiled, his lips slightly parted. He was so close to her, that she could smell his cologne - oranges and mint. Y/N had to stop herself from closing her eyes and leaning in.

“Well, catch you later Oddi!” He said quickly, as he briskly stood up from his chair and cracked his knuckles.

“See you Roman.” She replied quietly to herself.

Said boy just so happens to star alongside Jackson. She wondered if he still smelt the same like oranges and mint, maybe he even was -

Y/N shook her head, her curls bouncing around her shoulders. She couldn’t think about him today, today was Jackson’s day. Besides he had every other damn day to consume her thoughts. She would avoid him and that was that.

“Y/N! Y/N! Look! Look!” Jackson was pointing as he stared at all the flashing cameras and interviewers with microphones stood at the ready. His eyes lit up as he spoke and he smiled that dimpled smile of pure joy. Make those experiences, Jackson, thought Y/N as she smiled and stared with him. Soon enough they were parked and helped out of a limo by a wide shouldered man who fistbumped Jackson. Y/N smoothed out her silver dress (hoping to God, there were no wrinkles) and touched the earrings on her ears (those bad boys cost as much as a mortgage).

The boy bounded outside of the limo and was immediately bombarded by interviewers and questions (“How was working with older actors?” “We’re you scared?” “Are you going to see the movie?”).

Y/N stifled a laugh as she caught up to Jackson, making sure to look more confident than she really was in her black pumps. She subtly pointed in attempts to direct his attention to an interview who looked kind enough. Immediately the young boy caught on, at seven years old he was more aware of social cues then Y/N. Y/N went off to stand next to her parents, making sure to stay in direct earshot.

“Hello!” Jackson exclaimed happily, interlocking his fingers and letting his arms go slack. He looked so professional and gentlemanly, Y/N could’ve sang.

“Hello there Jackson! It’s so great to talk to you!” The interview knelt a bit, getting down to his level. She was tilting the microphone towards his mouth as she smiled genuinely.

“And you!”

“Thank you very much! Anyway, so both you and your sister have both worked with Bill Skarsgard right?”

Oh boy here it is.

“Yep!” Jackson said just as happily.

“How did you like it?!”

“Well, his costume is kinda scary but I saw him - em - get ready and stuff so - so it wasn’t too bad. I mean, eating me was kinda scary but not too too bad. He’s actually really nice and a really good actor and he told me a lot of stories about my sister and a lot of them were really funny but some of them weren’t really funny.” Jackson rambled, his tongue was officially detached from his brain. Now it wagged along in his jaw.

“What were the not so funny stories?” The interviewer asked puzzled, as she tried to reposition herself so the microphone was right underneath Jackson.

C’mon kid. I love ya. I care for ya. I support ya in all aspects of life. But if you say some of those not so funny stories, you better hope to God you - Y/N’s mind was in complete freefall, every secret fantasy, dream, and hope was currently abandoning ship.

Jackson, giddy as ever, had no problem wagging his tongue some more. He took a deep breath of air before saying, “Well, he told me about how sometimes on the show he would try to - um - get her attention and it never really worked and she never liked him. He told me that she thought he was, well, I dunno what it means so it could be a bad word … ”

“Go on, I’ll make sure it isn’t a bad word.” The interviewer egged on. Y/N was starting to like this woman less and less.

“He said that she thought he was a player.” The interviewer just laughed and assured him that ‘player’ was not in fact a bad word before asking him other questions about the movie.

Y/N looked around her as if to say, Did anyone else just hear that? Her jaw was now completely slack as she hung it open stupidly. Her shoulders unstraightened, her back slouched, and she had to check to make sure that the earrings were still hanging from her ears.

“Did you hear that?” A familiar voice asked in her ear as tingles shot down her spine. Y/N looked up at the tall god that was Bill Skarsgard and nodded fiercely, as she felt her forehead with the back of her hand. Was she ill? Because now she was feeling a bit feverish in this dress.

“Did you really?” He asked again, looking down at his shoes and smirking, his lips just parted. She just nodded again. “Well, I suppose the truth is out there.” His slight accent on the word ‘there’ caused Y/N to smile widely.

“I never thought you were a player. I thought you were …  popular.” Y/N finally said, breaking the tension. Bill tipped his head back, his hands in the pockets of his tailored trousers, and gave the heartiest laugh. The breeze caught his hair and Y/N could smell oranges and mint on the wind.

Once he had stopped laughing, all Y/N could think was just say it, just say it.

“I - uh - I well I was trying as much as - I - well wanted your attention too.” Y/N finally spoke out, raising her voice to make sure he heard it too. “Wow - I always thought you didn’t like me and I want you to kno-”

“HEY CAN WE GET A PHOTO OF YOU GUYS?!” A photographer interjected the sweet moment much to Y/N’s dismay. But Bill snaked his hand on her waist and softly pulled her into him, so she was pressed into his long torso. She smiled at the small gesture, looking down at his hand as she felt him smile down on her.

And we’re back with another collab swoot, this time with @dimfann!

Dim is one of those artists that every time I see them draw anything I’m just totally mystified. Real talk, a big reason why I switched over from doing painterly stuff to doing colored sketches like this is because of Dim and @verulence. I’m completely infatuated by their volumes, and the past year has basically been just me trying to catch up to that crazy high standard they set. Very excited I got to work on this one (Sorry for making you wait so long on it though Dim lol, school gets in the way). I think I learned a good deal from this, especially about staying loose, it really opens up some expression stuff.

In other notes beyond me geeking out over Dim’s crazy volumes, if you get a fallout vibe that’s my 🅱. Granted the jacket colors were inspired by fallout but it’s not really supposed to be an explicit reference. Also no cutie mark is best cutie mark fight me.

13x01 Lens Flares

One of my favorite things in this episode was the use of lens flares. There is a reason that the scenes with lens flares were filmed outside on a sunny day that doesn’t really fit the mood of the episode. Lens flares are created by a bright light, especially sunlight, hitting the front of a camera lens and bouncing off different lens elements inside the lens. 

You can prevent stray light from hitting the front of the lens by using a hood. Every camera filming outside is going to have a hood. Probably one that adjusts for the field of view and focal length. Here is an example of a camera on the set of Supernatural with a hood.

It would be very difficult to get lens flares on accident with a hood. It can and does happen but if you don’t want them you can make adjustments and reshoot the scene. Higher end lenses also make lens flares more difficult so when a director wants this effect sometimes a filter is used or a cheep lens. 

This particular flare is called a “veiling flare” and it takes place when the source of light is out of frame but the light is still hitting the front of the lens. Some people have suspected that this was added in later. I think there is a natural lens flare here that was edited later to show different colors. But this was originally produced using sunlight. When Sam asks about Cas. Cas shows up as a ray of sun over Deans face. The colors are definitely edited in no one can excuse this as a coincidence like they might excuse Dean’s bi shirt or other props with bi colors. Naturally this flare was probably white-light yellow. Like this.

Someone had to go in later to change the colors to bi flag color. If they wanted just a lens flare they wouldn’t have colored it. 

This is another important lens flare that happens during Dean’s prayer. This one looks like it could be completely natural.  This could be another sign from tptb that Dean is not straight but I don’t think it is.  Dean is talking to God. Talking about how he lost his everything. His whole world you could say.  Everyone knows the story of Noah’s ark where God destroys the earth with a flood and makes a rainbow afterwards.

11 I establish my covenant with you: Never again will all life be destroyed by the waters of a flood; never again will there be a flood to destroy the earth.12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. - Genesis 9: 11-13

I think this could be a promise from God that Dean will not have to go through this again. Dean won’t have to see his everything destroyed ever again. I know that Dean thinks Chuck didn’t answer him but I am wondering if he actually did.

reddie headcanons

there’s no rhyme or reason to these, they’re just random for the most part but i guess set when they’re about 16/17. if you want any that follow a theme just send me an ask!

  • eddie loves flowers but richie doesn’t have money to buy them (before he gets a job during high school) so he picks flowers and makes little handmade bouquets. richie isn’t the best at romantic stuff so eddie thinks it’s the sweetest thing when he does it
  • sometimes when it’s bad at home richie really hates being alone so he bikes to eddie’s house and sneaks in through the window. he lays his head on eddie’s lap and eddie plays with his hair and sings to him sometimes
  • the losers help richie with a cute & extravagant plan for him to ask eddie to prom senior year but one night they’re sitting in eddie’s room doing homework and richie nervously blurts out “will you go to prom with me?” and eddie starts laughing because “i kind of figured we were already going together, einstein” but ofc he says yes and tells richie he’s cute when he’s nervous (richie blushes furiously)
  • they got together when they were 16. the other losers started a bet the summer after they fought It about when they’d get together (stan won the bet)
  • they go on a lot of dates (to the aladdin, to go get ice cream, the arcade, stargazing) but most of the time they either hang out in richie’s room and play board games/listen to music or have picnics at the barrens
  • richie starts working a part time job before their junior year and saves up all of his paychecks to buy a car. he insists on driving eddie to school and he rolls down all the windows and sings obnoxiously loudly (his favorites to sing to eddie are come on eileen, can’t fight this feeling, and africa). eddie acts annoyed but he loves it and is usually singing with richie by the second or third song.
  • when they’re 14, eddie and the others find out that richie has never had a cake on his birthday or really celebrated outside of anything he might have done with the losers. eddie takes it upon himself to make a cake for richie every year after that and have a party with the losers. after the first year mike decides he’s gonna make the cake (bc he’s the best cook) and eddie focuses on making sure the party runs smoothly (it never does. one year bev shoved richie’s face into the cake after he blew out the candles. another time they had to convince richie that, no, trying to jump off of the roof and into the pool in bill’s backyard is not a good idea)
  • richie tries his best to be nonchalant about the party & cake every year but they make him so happy. he doesn’t tell eddie that until they’re older (eddie already knew)
  • eddie says ‘i love you’ first. they’ve been together for a few months and he says it when they’re walking home one day. richie runs into a telephone pole bc he’s just staring at eddie. he gets so distracted that it isn’t until he gets home that he realizes he forgot to say it back
  • ^he bikes to eddie’s house that night and throws rocks at his window until eddie opens it, and richie climbs up onto the flat part of the roof outside of eddie’s window. 
  • “richie, what the fuck are you doing?” “i love you too” “what?” “i didn’t say it earlier. i love you too.” eddie can’t even be annoyed that it’s late or his mom might hear them or richie could, like, fall off the fucking roof bc he’s so happy

California’s best beaches

Whether you’re looking to spot wildlife, want to catch some waves or ride a rollercoaster from dawn until dusk, there’s a beach for every type of traveller in California, says travel writer Hannah Summers


Santa Monica, Los Angeles 

A day at the beach doesn’t have to mean hours lazing in the sun. A case in point is LA’s 5.6km-long Santa Monica Beach. In fact, this stretch of sand is home to the original Muscle Beach, which has made a name for itself as the city’s most popular outdoor gym (and the second home of celebs and bodybuilders, including Arnold Schwarzenegger) since the 1950s. 

Today you can try out the bicep-quivering equipment yourself, or just head along for a spot of people watching. The big draw though is the colours, lights and old-school atmosphere of the Santa Monica Pier. Test your nerves on the roller coaster, indulge in gigantic ice creams, or ride the 13-story Pacific Wheel – the world’s first and only solar-powered Ferris wheel.

La Jolla, San Diego

La Jolla is known as ‘the jewel’ of San Diego, and it’s easy to see why with its white-sand beaches, towering sea cliffs and turquoise coves. Most beaches here are tucked into rocky coves, but for a 1.6km-long stretch of palm-backed sand, try La Jolla Shores Beach, the perfect patch for soft surf and sunbathing.

For something a little more hardcore, join one of the many kayaking trips leaving the beach and heading out to La Jolla Caves – it’s a rocky beach that’s hard to access on foot, and your efforts will be rewarded with spectacular cliffs and perhaps a sea lion or two.

San Gregorio State Beach, San Francisco Bay Area

For a combination of wildlife and walks, try San Gregorio State Beach which sits in a valley 15km south of Half Moon Bay. This is a rustic beach as its best, so instead of ice-cream shops and fairground rides, expect a golden sweep of sand dotted with logwood, driftwood and birds. 

Picnic tables dot the bluff – bring your favourite food and drink down and enjoy it with the views – then work it off with a walk. Head south and you’ll take on a cliff-backed stretch to Pomponio State Beach, or head north to explore caves, fossils and sandstone cliffs.

Leadbetter Beach, Santa Barbara

It’s impossible not to fall for Santa Barbara, the laid-back and cosy beach town boasts top-draw beaches, pretty buildings and a booming food and drink scene. It’s also been a long-standing surfers’ hangout, and if you fancy trying it for yourself then there’s no better place than Leadbetter Beach, a favourite of local families and students from the college over the road. 

You’ll find hardcore surfers at other beaches in Santa Barbara (try Rincon Point) but Leadbetter, with its gentle waves, is a great place to get to grips with a surfboard or try a stand-up paddle boarding session.

Fly to Los Angeles


Zuma Beach, Malibu

Zuma Beach in Malibu has had its fair share of publicity – Pamela Anderson ran these sands while filming Baywatch (and allegedly lives nearby), while Don Henley reportedly wrote his hit The Boys of Summer on this very beach. 

Malibu locals find its wide sands and gentle surf (perfect for boogie boarders and body surfers) hard to resist, while others love the lively beach atmosphere – from hot dog stalls to groups of surfers hanging out listening to music. Satisfy your stomach at the Reel Inn, an informal restaurant, kitted out with wooden sharing benches – it serves up plates of fresh fried and grilled fish.


Carmel Beach, Central Californian Coast

Forget people watching – at Carmel Beach on the central Californian coast it’s all about dog watching. In fact, this is one of the only beaches in the area where dogs are allowed off the lead, so expect a full-on show from the pups. 

Here the Pacific Ocean takes on a turquoise hue, and the water is speckled with surfers, otters and even dolphins. If you’re a big kid at heart, the annual Great Sandcastle Contest takes place every October, while you should also set aside some time to explore the romantic beach town of Carmel-by-the-Sea.


Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur State Park

Big Sur features on most people’s Californian must-visit lists and with good reason – as far as dramatic coastlines go, this is the best you’ll see. At the heart of the region is Pfeiffer State Park, where hiking trails thread their way through 1,000 acres of redwood groves (try the 2-mile round-trip hike to the Pfeiffer Falls for some of the best holiday snaps around). 

Pfeiffer Beach, however, is really the big deal here. The combination of offshore stacks and rocks, deep blue ocean and purple sand make for a simply unforgettable combination. Stay for sunset and you’ll see some of the best beach views California has to offer.

Underverse  0.0 to 0.3 re-upload?

Hi everyone! Jakei here.

Just as the title of this post says, I’m thinking of re-upload the first full episodes of Underverse again.

Why is it a remake or something?
Not actually. For so many months I haven’t been so happy about….my english. Yeah.
Mostly of you know that my first language is Spanish, not english. And since the beggining, my english level was SO bad. I think this affected my work, which, it makes me feel so uncomfortable since my animations’ quality is..good?.

Or maybe I’m being too perfectionist…

Many people helped me to improve my english and fix the grammar of the scripts before I started to work, but it always happened that in middle of animating I decided to change or add something…and ended by screwing everything up.

This sometimes really frustates me, because I’m actually pretty good in Spanish grammar (Ironically). And (Trying to not put this into personal stuff but…damn) I feel so stupid for some reason when I can’t express myself fluently in this language, and I’d just like to have no voice so I would never say something stupid or something with nosense.

The second reason I don’t want to see my Youtube Channel, is because of that. 
I’m okay with animation mistakes, but never with the main thing that matters in a story that is writting.

So…taking the point of this post, I’m probably going to reupload the first episodes on Underverse with their respective parts in one video. (And maybe fixing other things like sfx and music before I had Stereohead and Nyx’s help…Oh! And the blog’s previous name, too).

When that happens, the current videos will be set as “hidden” Because I don’t really want to saturate my channel with the same thing. This may make life easier for people who don’t get used to watching an episode with so many parts.


That’s the idea but I think I have to think more about it…I’m rambling here. Just wanted to let you know in case you have some advices or if someday you will ask why did I do this.


See ya in the next update!

anonymous asked:

im curious if theres a reason lance isn't on the football team himself? did he not want to or did he not make tryouts or something? medical condition or did he have his heart set on school mascot? just curious

Lance wasn’t really interested so he never tried out, he’s got a lot on his plate already with his Honors Chemistry and Advanced Physics classes. Gotta keep that dean’s list status.

But soon after school started Coran, the team’s coach and favorite crazy history teacher, realized he was short a few players and reached out to several kids for a scholarship spot on the team.

The first person he asked was Hunk. Coran had seen him in gym class benching Lance and making the class laugh, but Coran knew Hunk would be a strong addition to the team. Hunk couldn’t pass up an opportunity to save his mom money on his school tuition. 

SO

Lance went into full support mode and basically right out took hold of the mascot position for the free food and the best seat in the house. Watching Hunk play from the sidelines cheering him on.

Who Killed Markiplier Thoughts.

Just managed to watch it now and I need to get all my thoughts out rn while they’re fresh.

The Colonel and the Mayor? Two new egos maybe or two existing egos in disguise? The Colonel definitely reminds me of Warfstache, but the Mayor I don’t really see a connection to any of the other egos. Perhaps Dark though, since we know he’s good at playing a part, he does so well in ADWM.

Going off the plot to CLUE the film based on Cluedo that came out in 1985 (and there are spoilers for the film here so if you haven’t seen it and want to don’t read this part) the butler was the one who killed the “victim” because of blackmail that his master had about him…or something along those lines but I think it’s a little too obvious to think that Mark and Teamiplier would go along the same plot line as an already existing film.

The Fnaf noises during the security cam scene was freaky but also potentially something? Like maybe pointing to something more sinister happening in the house? But at least we know who Little Buddy is now, but not why he has a KILL mode. 

Honestly it sort of gave more questions that it did answers, but there was so much there for theorising with:

The Colonel shows a “two pair” hand in the drunk scene, which is the third lowest hand you can have in Poker, but with Aces included it can be a winner. So, there’s potential motive there, and from his “narration” of what happened when Mark died, there does seem to be some animosity between them for some reason, whether it’s from that night or something in the past.

We know the Mayor, the Colonel and Mark have known each other a long time, considering the argument that the Mayor and the Colonel have, and the Colonel states he does care, he’s just not crying over Mark’s death. He’s the quickest to really want to help, and the only one to give a proper “idea” of how Mark died, but he admits it’s all speculation, and he would be a likely suspect, since he is seen with a gun in the drunk scene, and in the original game of Cluedo, Colonel Mustard was normally portrayed as a hunter. He also fills his gun with only one bullet, like Russian Roulette. 

Later in the scene as well, we see the Detective with a look of despair on his face, and it looks like a continued scene of the one where the Colonel shows his two pair. It could still point at motive, if he thought he had a good hand and then Mark turned around and beat him, especially since in the “narration” Mark has a lot of poker chips in front of him.

The Detective has a few scenes where he seems to be involved in violence, there are a few scenes where he has a sort of angry expression when looking at us the viewer, and he does fight with the Colonel as well (although the Colonel wins because he has him in a choke hold), so this video did set up really well that any one of them could be suspects. 

My gut feeling tells me that the Chef knows more than he’s letting on, but I don’t think hes involved with a murder. And the butler is not as methodical, nor as “innocent” as he seems. Why take us down to the wine cellar? For no other reason than there was a broken bottle which he then proceeded to freak out over? It just seems strange.

And the Mayor seems to be painted as an innocent one, going to do work before the body appears, arriving last into the room (bar the Colonel) and then needing some time because of his “childhood friend”. But he also says, “I’m not entirely sure what we’re supposed to be celebrating here, I mean, it’s good to have the gang back together, but out of the blue like this seems-.” and then he cuts off. So he clearly has thoughts on what’s happening, but he doesn’t want to share them for whatever reason. 

The arrival of @whokilledmarkiplier is interesting as well, especially since the Jims show up? So are the egos going to play a bigger part in all of this as well? Are they investigating Mark’s murder, or are the Jim’s providing us the viewer with vital clues? If Mark has known the Mayor at least since childhood, could it be something the other egos have set up to get to him? Is Mark even actually dead, or is it a ploy to get one of the other characters?

So many questions.

I loved the entire thing though it was amazing done. Kudos to @markiplier and Teamiplier for everything in it, the shots were amazing, the acting was great and it was hilarious. 

Especially the broken bottle scene.
