they look like they're about to make out

These are a new concept that I saw no one else was doing!
They’re Cave Pearls! Pearls are made out of calcium carbonate inside the shell of the mollusk, but! In caves there are Calcite deposits that trickle down into small pools of running water, and can cling to a nucleus! Forming over centuries, they make a Cave pearl. 
They’re non-nacreous of course so they’re not shimmery or brightly colored, but they’re still beautiful.

This is my concept for what Cave pearls look like! Big! -The green one is Canon Pearl’s height!- with torn looking sheer and some form of skin markings. 
They’re all usually blind or have extremely bad eyesight, though some can use correctional visors if their sight is strong enough.

Please make some of your own! Or send me asks about what they’re like! 

(A screenshot of a screenshot isn’t that something)

Anyways OP has me blocked but this post is terrible because asexualsantaclaus was talking about the importance of m/f relationships that are underrepresented like a romance between two trans people or a person of color.

I know asexualsantaclaus is a shitty person but they had a valid point about how there are some straight relationships that are important and deserve more attention and I hate that this person fucking cropped it out to make them look bad.

I’m sick of seeing this post on my dash

Hey guys, I’m looking for help with a project! One of my students is a super lovely 70yr lady who is just starting to learn English, and I’m trying to find her a penpal! She has a very elementary knowledge of English, but she’s really eager to learn. If any of you would be interesting in exchanging e-mails with her like twice a month (short, basic e-mails, maybe like one or two paragraphs, talking about friends or activities you like, fun stuff,) hmu!!


Got a breather so going to spend today going through commissions until work(read: edits) pops up.
This was a fun commission of Swindle and Blurr hanging out; I went a little abstract with it and wanted it to do a thing that looked like an ad for a cute slice-of-life cartoon about Blurr running his bar and Swindle running his mouth(because he cons people).

(Bonus famawee photos of me, @markerguru001, @spewpew, and @adelightfultedium; she got herself thwee dads)

In the sidekick!AU, Nino knows Adrien is Chat Noir, which means he knows Adrien is dating Ladybug, which becomes a problem post-reveal because Marinette wants to grope her boyfriend in public but she can’t or Nino will find out she’s Ladybug.

Although convenient, Adrien’s house is about as sexy as a graveyard and there are too many people around asking questions.

Marinette’s apartment… has Alya in it.

Then it hits Marinette. “My parents’ house.”

Adrien: ??????? How???

Marinette gives him the address. “Come by at midnight and you’ll see.”

Midnight finds Adrien on Marinette’s roof (all those stairs he has to climb as civilian Chat Noir - poor baby). He’s just about to ask himself whether he has the right place when the skylight pops open and Marinette pokes her head out.

“My, is that Chat Noir, Ladybug’s trusty sidekick?” And she gives him this absolutely devilish grin and purrs, “Does your Lady know you’re here?”

And that’s how Marinette started visiting her parents more often. (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

[GUIDE]: How To Initiate RP Interactions

Since people seem to stress out a lot about asking other people to RP with them, here’s a quick and messy guide for the basic steps I usually follow.

STEP ONE: Check their tumblr.

Does it say selective? Semi-selective? Nothing like that? If there’s nothing about selectively, you’re free to go. If it says selective or semi-selective, look at the quality of responses they have from their partners and see if you’re up to that standard. If you are, proceed to step two.

STEP TWO: Read their rules.

Do they only do plotted RP? Prefer starters only based off memes they post? Only post with their friends? Like being messaged first to plot out RPs rather than anything random? Rules are usually individual so please read them first if they have them. If they don’t have a rules page, jump ahead to step three!

STEP THREE: Message them!

a) While it’s totally possible to just write a starter and tag them, a lot of people get confused if they’re tagged out of the blue by a stranger. If you message them first and ask if they’d like to RP with you, that gives them a chance to either politely turn you down for whatever reason (too busy, only RPing with friends, have bad associations attached to your character etc) in a way that’s private, or to check out your tumblr and suggest something they’d like to RP. Or ask you what you want to RP.

b) OR you can just send in a starter from an ask meme they’ve posted. I have over 700 followers and only maybe 15-20 of them actually interact with me. Believe me, I am happy whenever I get a starter sent in and even happier when I receive OOC headcanon asks. Please try to pick a starter that’d make sense for your character and theirs, however, instead of just a random one or one that’d force either character into OOC behavior.

STEP FOUR: Stay calm.

Don’t panic if they aren’t replying immediately. They might be busy, they might be having some trouble finding a muse for that thread or tumblr might’ve eaten your message. Give it a week and then you can probably send them a polite message asking if they got your last message. Don’t guilt trip them or make a fuss if they’ve been replying to other people, just check if it’s been tumblr error or if there’s something you can change in your post to make it easier to reply to.

STEP FIVE: Dealing with rejection.

Remember this is just a pretendy happy fun times activity. Even if they don’t want to RP with you, there are thousands of people who do RP and you can find someone else to play with you and it’s way more fun playing with someone who wants to play with you, and is excited for your posts, than someone whom you are constantly worrying is bored with you.

If they say they’d rather not RP with you, accept that, find someone else and start from Step One again!

Has Anyone Else Been Looking at Easter Merch?

Like when you’re just out and about? Have ya noticed the weird abundance of alpacas this year? Like, sheep I get, getting down with the Jesus, but why alpacas? Has consumer America finally integrated alpacasso into their marketing?

I headcanon that one day Kagome goes to heal someone and they don’t understand the concept of receiving free medication so they demand she take home at least two of their chickens for the trouble, and Inuyasha at first hates the idea (because they are stupid and they make him sneeze and they are scared of absolutely everything) but then he becomes very proud and obsessed with their chicken brood (coming up with ways to keep them safe and protected from vermin)-and so I always squeeze in the fact he has chickens of his own and he has a swollen ego because of it into my fics, and honestly no one can stop me.

haha well alrighty here’s a dose of Lieutenant. again, my anatomy’s pretty awful, and my faces are beyond cartoony, so there’s a sorta style rift there, but hopefully its not too weird to look at. And to make it not completely pointless, I added a few random fun facts about Lieutenant for shoots and googles. hope you like!

so not only did Thorin and Bilbo trade primary colors (and if that doesn’t already sound like a euphemism for sex wow) but the rest of the company is in browns and tans and greys, just to make sure that Bilbo’s lovely new shade of royal blue and Thorin’s fresh look complete with deep passionate red really stand out.
