they are too awesome for this world

anonymous asked:

do you know good diverse fantasy? like lots of lgbt ppl or poc

  • The Graceling Series by Kristin Cashore: Three different leads embark on different journeys in a fantasy world. REALLY feminist, with plotlines about consent and unfair power dynamics. Character development and romance writing of my dreams. Two of the leads and all three romantic interests are stated to be woc and one mc is bi and one of the love interests is bi too! And so many poc+lgbt side characters! 
  • Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo: I know you have all seen me recommend this before. I do not care. Two bi characters (one of color!!), a really awesome woc. The biggest badass is physically disabled, and one of the smartest characters has dyslexia. This series is written so well!! There’s so much moral ambiguity, there’s some really well-written romance, I personally would die for every single character. 
  • The Scorpion Rules Duology by Erin Bow: The children of world leaders are imprisoned in preceptures to stop their parents from starting wars. Two bi mcs, one of whom is also asian. The villain is so well developed, the main character is Amazing, the writing is gorgeous, and it’s possibly the most sensical dystopia I’ve ever read. This book subverts literally every trope ever and it’s fucking awesome. It’s a little hard to get through, but it’s so worth it in every way. I want everyone to read this. 
  • The Young Elites Series by Marie Lu: I’m surprised to never see this on diversity rec lists, because it’s at least 90% characters of color and at least 70% lgbt characters. This series is a villainess’ origin story where no character is entirely good or entirely bad. It’s entertaining and full of moral ambiguity, with central sibling relationships and a cast of interesting characters. 
  • Otherbound by Corrine Duyvis: how do I explain this book? It’s sense8 if every sensate lived in an entirely different world. There are disabled characters and both main characters are of color and one is a bi girl and she falls in love with a princess. It’s written very nicely and the author does character work so well. I trust Corrine Duyvis enough to also recommend her book On The Edge of Gone, which has an autistic mc!!

i want like a fic where Joey is really insecure that he’s too immature for Mai like he’s here stressing about living with his crappy father and finishing school while Mai is this awesome vagabond that travels the world and he feels like such a kid but he just wants to be like THE MAN she needs and then like one day she’s waiting outside for him after class on graduation day or something and she says something akin to loving the man that he’s become and they ride off into the sunset byE i dont make the ruels

thanks @weltraumfieber for tagging! ♥

Rule: list 10 good things that happened in 2016 (could be about you, the world, your friend, etc. as long as it is positive things) then tag 10 friends. 

oh boy.

  1. I graduated from school (got really awesome grades for my final exams too) and started studying computer science
  2. learned a lot of new things
  3. got a job
  4. came out to a lot of people without fear
  5. bought a tablet and started doing digital art

  9. went to my first convention ever
  10. possibly became more confident

I don’t want someone who doesn’t want me completely. I don’t want to just have sex, yeah fucking would be awesome, but not if that’s all someone wants from me. I want someone who tries to figure out my mind and wants to see the beauty I see in the world. I can’t have someone who only wants a part of me, I need someone who remembers the little things I do or tell them; someone who thinks the world of me. I want to have all the things that I want to give someone else.
—  is that too much to ask for?
Why Bill is the coolest Weasley brother

Here are just some of the ways Bill Weasley shows he is the absolute cat’s pyjamas. Which, in case you were wondering, is far better than the ghoul’s pyjamas…

“Bill was – there was no other word for it – cool.”
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

He’s a curse-breaker for Gringotts

The job title alone sounds pretty awesome. Not only does Bill have goblins for colleagues – notoriously tricky customers – but he also gets to do the majority of his work amid the pyramids of Egypt. He’s pretty much the closest the wizarding world has to Indiana Jones.

He showed us that it’s cool to be clever

Obviously we already have Hermione flying the flag for bookworms everywhere, but Bill is a very smart fellow too. He also seemed a little more cavalier about his intellect than Hermione, who has a Boggart that tells her she’s failed all of her exams and literally turns back time to make all of her lessons count.

Meanwhile, Bill has O.W.L.s coming out of his ears and a Head Boy badge under his belt with seemingly no stress whatsoever. No big deal.

He has style to boot

Mrs Weasley may be in a constant battle with her eldest son regarding his aesthetic choices, but when Harry first claps eyes on Bill’s long ponytail, fanged earring and dragon-hide boots, he deems that his clothes ‘would not have looked out of place at a rock concert’.

Just imagine, for a moment, being Bill Weasley’s rock concert companion; you’d score so many cool points just by being near him. Imagine the inevitable crowdsurfing.

He mocks Percy’s cauldron bottoms

Only Percy Weasley could discuss the topic of cauldron bottoms with such regularity and still manage to keep a straight face.

Naturally Fred and George can be counted on to relentlessly mock Percy and his stiff-collared approach to his new Ministry job, but it is in fact the eldest Weasley brother we can thank for first mocking Percy’s cauldron bottom report – and he even manages to do so while having a mid-air table battle of epic proportions. Classic Bill.

He’s patient with Mrs Weasley’s fussing

We all know how annoying it is to be fussed over by your family, and Mrs Weasley’s niggling of Bill for his appearance must get irksome. That’s if you’re the sort to be irked though, which Bill clearly isn’t.

During one such conversation with his mother, when Molly protests that Bill’s earring isn’t appropriate for work, he puts paid to her argument with a simple, ‘Mum, no one at the bank gives a damn how I dress as long as I bring home plenty of treasure.’ Bill one, Molly nil.

He knows when it’s time to spring into action

Though he’s Mr Laidback the majority of the time, Bill still knows when it’s time to act. When the Death Eaters make an appearance at the Quidditch World Cup, Bill is immediately ready to aid in opposing them.

In the aftermath, although injured, his arm bleeding ‘profusely,’ Bill’s only concern is if the person who conjured the Dark Mark was caught. That’s our guy.

Even Rita Skeeter doesn’t get to him

Some of our toughest cookies have taken the cruel words of Rita Skeeter and her poisonous quill to heart. Hermione, who rarely takes notice of what idle gossips say about her, was reduced to tears by Rita’s slander; Hagrid, the man who befriends bloodthirsty beasts of all shapes and sizes, resorted to hiding out in his hut thanks to her unkind words.

But Bill? Please. He brushes aside being branded a ‘long-haired pillock’ with the greatest of ease.

His wife is amazing too

Almost every other guy in the series had fawned haplessly over the beautiful Beauxbatons student and Triwizard champion Fleur Delacour, but the second she sees Bill Weasley, it’s game over.

As Fleur is ‘eyeing Bill with great interest,’ is he all a dither? Of course not. By playing it far too cool for school, Bill gets the girl effortlessly. Well played, Weasley, well played.

He’s calm in the face of adversity

When Voldemort returns and everyone is, understandably, going to pieces just a tad, even Dumbledore doesn’t seem as brimming with joy as usual.

While Dumbledore enlists people with their duties, worried about the logistics of getting word to Arthur, Bill cuts the Headmaster short with a simple, ‘Leave it to me,’ followed swiftly by a clap of the hand on Harry’s shoulder, a kiss on his mother’s cheek, a swish of his cloak and an admirable striding exit. Now that’s how it’s done.

He took a brutal werewolf attack in his stride like an absolute champ

When Bill is mauled by Fenrir Greyback, he’s scarred for life. This would be enough trauma to drastically alter even the strongest of people.

However, while paying visits to the recovering Bill, Harry observes that ‘in personality he seemed just the same as ever. All that appeared to have changed was that he now had a great liking for very rare steaks.’ Fenrir who?

A Tale of English VA’s and Yuri on Ice

A girl, with subscriptions that allow her both, watches in tandem the sub and dub of Yuri!!! on Ice. On a cold Monday night, the episode featuring this ridiculous man airs in English. 

ie Christophe Giacometti. 

This girl has been excited for this moment, and isn’t disappointed. It’s not what she heard in her head, but he delights her nonetheless. That bit even managed the exact same amount of cringe as the Japanese without being too much (you know the scene to which I refer).

But alas, her voice actor geekery has failed her. Who is this man who’s so awesomely given her favorite side character a second voice to enjoy (this one in her native tongue)? 

“Can it be…him? No, that can’t be right. He’s playing Celestino. Perhaps it’s?….No no no, not deep enough. Oh how utterly vexing!”

And in her dismay, she sends a missive out to the world, a digital message in a bottle, hoping her song of devotion will reach the right set of ears. 

But lo, plagued by sleeplessness, she tosses and turns with these ideas. And goodly so, for she’s awake to receive the reply. 

And thus she rejoices, for not only is the mystery solved, but said actor is one of her favorites and has marked upon this day her gratitude. 

In short:

The English voice of Vegeta, Piccolo, Shenron, Alex Louis Armstrong, AllMight, Garterbelt, Kitz Woerman, Batou (in Arise), Ritsu Kasanoda (OHSHC), and Eflman Straus among many many other badass dudes….is this guy in Yuri on Ice.

The world is a magical place. 

Life lessons from Rhett and Link

Yeah, Rhett and Link are pretty silly guys. But they’ve also taught some real life lessons that just make me feel happy. Enjoy this appreciation post to get through the GMM hiatus :) Let’s talk about that.

It’s okay to be scared. And to admit it.

Everyone has something to give to the world. Even if that something isn’t as noticeable as making internet videos.

Do what makes you happy. If lunch is the only thing that you look forward to everyday, then it’s time to change up your life. 

There’s no limit to your potential. Do something awesome and be dang proud of it.

It’s okay to need help. That’s what friends are there for.

You can’t be good at everything. Own it, and be confident anyways. 

Laugh. All the time. Life is too short to not enjoy it.

Well here they are: Jeffrey and Sara, the teenaged brother and sister duo of my upcoming animated series TOO LOUD! Due to Jeffrey and Sara’s abnormally large heads and faces, they’re the two noisiest and clumsiest people in the world - much to the dismay of everyone around them!

I created these guys late 2014, with final designs by my pal and ultra-talented artist Benjamin Anders. Then I pitched everything to Dreamworks TV… to very positive response! And for the past year, my team of artist pals and I have been working hard to bring you the most fun cartoon we possibly can. And it’s all coming to AwesomenessTV on a Youtube near you, THIS SPRING! 📢


EDIT!
Hey! Suddenly got lots of premature judging that Too Loud is a rip-off of The Loud House. I’m assuming because the word “loud” is in both titles? Besides that if you see any resemblance, it’s complete coincidence. Both shows are totally different settings, characters, everything. I created TL before LH was even in production, and even then I work at Nickelodeon so it would be very foolish of me to plagairize a peer’s show like that. I suppose despite having TL in the works for 2 years, criticism will happen since LH happened to release first. Hopefully once the actual show is online, folks will see it has nothing in common with LH.

reasons why we *i* love daniel sousa

-“OH NELLY.”

fanon kon: would receive the supportive boyfriend of the year award but hes too humble and probably gives it to tim instead with a speech about how tim is the best boyfriend in the world and hes lucky to have him, with zero dirty jokes or quips during the entire thing. (whats a personality?)

canon kon: would be given the supportive boyfriend of the year award as a joke, but puts it in a trophy case. when tim complains about kons awful sense of humor and/or complains about kon telling him to take it easy, kon points to it and says “sorry babe i cant hear you over the sound of me being awesome”

I ended up wearing Yuri twice at ABC because gosh, he’s comfy and fun to wear. I saw lots of other Yuris (japanese), another Yuri (russian), and a couple Victors too!

I redrew the tiger for my shirt and put it on redbubble to share with the world! Unfortunately, a lot of the world has since taken the image and reuploaded it for their own use, which is a pain. If you want your own awesome fashion, you can pick one up from my redbubble shop and thwart the people who took my drawing away from me (do you know how long it took to photoshop that dumb tiger?? Too long).

This is my little tribute to the anniversary relase. Is not much… is a “speed” paint for the time i had for it ((it took me 3 hours OTL)and must say that im a noob at environments speedpaintings ). But my rendition go for my main reason that made me love this game: THE WORLD DESIGN!.

I already said that i was almost in blank when i first start to playing it, and i played it around march(my first aproach was black tar and think it was awesome). My brother buy it before we had the wii u so it was our first game to play with(and mario kart).
Saw him runing around primordia and think it was cool. So then it was my turn to play it and I spend the whole month playing it. I was a totally noob so run for the entire world when they let me be free after chapter 3, but alone!!!!!!!!! It was almost a dead sentence  with too much powerful creatures and non knowlech of the fight system, unknowing it I get into Noctilum and it was the most amazing experience i have since the legend of zelda oot.  

The music, the environment, the creatures, the GLOWING STUFF!! and the music! everything in yuxtapotition  give so much feelings. Sugar in my eyes and my mind. It was hard to return to primordia because the south part of Noctilum  is too confusing for me (not so long ago i finally get it and already stop get lose around there) in anycase, exploring every continent the first time was always amazing and is something that i never going to forget.
