things everyone needs on their blog

** it’s so sad that it’s gotten to this point in the community. It’s sad that people have used “well the community is shitty so I’m going to be shitty too” as an excuse for behavior and this is not just about this week. It’s been this way for a while now and it’s honestly hard to look for good things in the community when so many people search to put it down. I just want to remind people of some of the good things about the community: yeah… We have some people who want to watch it burn. We have some people who rather see people be down for their own enjoyment.

We need to look at the reasons why we stay here and of course let’s begin with the amount of talent we all carry. I am beyond impressed at the work and effort everyone puts into their characters and blogs. Let’s not forget the writers that take us to another world and have brought characters to the dash that we will never forget. As for canon muns who we would all petition to write the next novel/movie/tv show. Take a second to remember why you stay through all this shit. This community is made of writers from all over the world and should be encouraged to write and be respected. Look at the friends you’ve made on this website and the partners you’ve gathered and it all began belonging to a wide community filled with different branches and fandoms.

To the people who have caused harm this week I just hope you know that I hope one day you’ll find it in you to see some good in this world and try and produce it yourself. Hate builds a crowd and love builds a community and trust me if we didn’t have something we love invested into this site we wouldn’t be here. Take a moment to thank you partners and let them know that you appreciate them. To all the people who have felt alone this week just know that if someone has done you wrong that many of us if we know you or not will stand up for you because of the simple reason that you belong to a community. Everyone deserves to be loved and respected as long as they share the same respect. Rper to rper and human to human: thank you for being a member of a community with lots of potential. ❤

Alrighty!

Well people, there are two things that I’d like to clarify before we can continue with our sweet lifes [No intention to sound mean, but just for the sake of the well-being of everyone in here.] 

1.- LD blog is run by two people [In fact, it is stated in the description, heh] me, Mod. Marie that is in charge of the administration of this blog and Mod. Eliana who is in charge of the artistic part. My job here is basically reblog what we think is important and answer the PM and the asks that are not needed to be replied with drawings. [Though sometimes it seems I’m not required]. At last I also post the essential things that has to do with the AU. 

2.- I had already seen that the Mafia version of Mod. Eliana is escalating quickly. [I can’t blame you! It’s amazing] However, I’d like to ask [Just this, I promise] that if you have an ask regarding of this you can ask either on my personal blog/art blog or in Mod. Eliana’s. We wouldn’t like to lose the focus of LaughDrew Films blog and we are doing our best to give you the best material. With this I’m not asking you to stop, but to not send it in here since this is a different thematic. 

This being said, hope you’re having an amazing night and remember that you are loved.
Thanks for your time.

10 Tips For New Kpop Fans

1.) Find some underrated groups! Of course, there’s nothing wrong with loving the most popular groups such as EXO, BigBang, BTS, etc. I love them, too! But I have found my greatest loves in some of the smaller groups. They seem to have greater fan interaction, and not to mention, it’s just fun to watch them grow. There’s nothing better than finding a newly debuting group and watching them grow.

2.) Girl groups, girl groups, girl groups! While it’s easy to get caught up in the fever of loving boy groups, don’t be afraid to branch out and listen to some of the talented girl groups out there. Their concepts can range from adorable to powerful, with everything in between.

3.) Don’t forget about solo artists. And I don’t just mean the solo albums put out by members of existing groups! There’s Ailee, Crush, Zion.t, and so many more talented soloists. Not to mention, that makes it easier to pick a bias ;)

4.) Shipping is okay! But… don’t be rude about it. There are some idols that are uncomfortable being shipped with others, and don’t like to hear about it. Write all the fanfiction you want, run a blog about your otp, but don’t annoy the idols themselves. There’s nothing worse than seeing comments on SNS and livestreams asking if they are dating someone, or if the other member is there with them.

5.) Try not to over-sexualize them. Of course, we all get a little thirsty when it comes to the sexy concepts a group can have, but you have to keep it within reason. There is so much more to them than the subject matter of their songs or the way that they dance. There’s a fine line between enjoying a sexy concept and fetishizing their every move.

6.) Don’t start fan-wars or compare artists. There’s nothing worse to me than hearing someone say that their fav is better than someone else’s. Truthfully, each and every artist works so hard to get where they are, and we as a fandom need to recognize that. For example, I am not a fan of BTS, but I respect them and recognize that they work incredibly hard to do the things they do. They deserve every moment they have recieved in the spotlight. It’s okay to dislike someone, but don’t try to make it into a contest. We are all just here to listen to good music. :)

7.) It’s okay to be a casual fan. Not everyone needs to get swept up in the obsession over kpop. One can listen to the music without knowing a single member’s name and still be a kpop fan! If you want to run a blog and watch every interview and memorize blood types and heights, you can. But if you simply want to listen to a few songs every now and again, you’re still a fan. Welcome to the kpoppin’ world.

8.) Don’t be embarrassed! It’s easy to think you’re weird for liking kpop if you live in a small town like me, but in truth, you’re never alone. And even when you feel like the only one on the planet that likes it, you’re allowed to rock it. Wear your merch, listen to your music, and scroll through your blog in front of others. There’s nothing wrong with loving what you love. (If you are being bullied already for your interests, please reach out for help.)

9.) Whitewashing is a no-no. I love me a good kpop edit, and kudos to those who make them, but please do NOT whitewash them. Melanin is a good thing, and their natural skin is something they should be proud of. Some photos are posted by them already over exposed, but the edits are different. If you think their skin is too dark, perhaps you should choose a different picture to edit.

10.) Unless you are actively learning Korean, please do not use random Korean words while you are speaking. Not only is it slightly annoying, it’s offensive. If you don’t know or understand where it comes from, you just happen to know it, it’s disrespectful. If you are interested, there are many online courses you can take and apps you can download on ios for free to learn the language properly.

That is all I can think of! Enjoy your stay in this wild fandom. :)

My advice? Bring a book. Bring a book when you have meetings, bring a book when you go walking in the park. Bring a book to a first date. You don’t have to read it, that isn’t the point. Just having it with you is enough.

Why Some Video Games Are In Danger of Disappearing Forever
Years of neglect are eroding gaming history. Cartridges rot in garages, companies horde demos that they will never release, and obscure titles fade into the ether. Some games may even be lost forever.
By Heather Alexandra

Heather Alexandra at Kotaku did a great write-up about the basic ins-and-outs of game preservation and the challenges faced, both technical and legal. She includes interviews with some of the leaders in the field, including the Internet Archive’s Jason Scott and the Video Game History Foundation’s Frank Cifaldi.

One of the reasons I wanted to share this post is the curation problem discussed at the bottom. Even preserved, games will effectively disappear if they aren’t discussed and brought into new light.

Additionally, fans can attempt to keep games alive in the public conscience. Streaming games, writing blog posts, having forum discussions, and working on fan creations all help keep the spirit of old games alive.

“Players and fans should capture gameplay videos and record their thoughts on playing games,” Scott suggested when asked what simple things could be done to help preserve games

“There’s only so much that individuals can do,” Cifaldi commented. “I think we need to use our power to publish and share things can help create an oral history around games.”

Callis sums it up more succinctly. “If you care at all, make an effort.”

I’m grateful for everyone who does this, and I’m trying to do it to. Talk about and share your thoughts about odd, forgotten games in the open to keep them alive.

Long Hiatus

Hello everyone!
I just wanted to give you some news.

As you can see, I’ll be absent for a long time. Recently I haven’t feeling very well, both physically and mentally due…many things are happening in my life right now.

I don’t want to lie to you all and pretend I’m always smiling and being funny and silly. This time I really need a time to deal with all those stuff that requires time  that I’m spending in my blogs and chats with people. I need some time alone. 

I’ll come back when Underverse 0.3-2 is finished, maybe in the middle of July, I’ll try to update a few advances of the animation, nothing else. I won’t stream until that day comes, too. I prefer to not using the chat for a while. I need to focus and save a lot of time to finish this animation and then being able to take important choices that are about to change many things of my daily life.

I have a couple of things to do before leaving, so don’t worry to people I promised to do those things this week.

…So, see you soon and thanks for everything.
Have fun.

To those of you (including me) who feel like you always need to be doing The Most: do what you can. Do your best. This doesn’t mean doing everything at once!! This doesn’t mean you can’t have free time to relax!! Also remember that someone else’s best is different than your own because they are doing different things and that’s ok.
You gotta do you man. If you can only read 10 pages today and need to relax for a bit? That is a-ok. Because everyone needs relaxation time. “Your best” includes down time because you need to relax and take care of yourself more than anything else

“Dean, you need to calm down. You’re freakin’ everyone out here,” Sam grumbled, punching his brother’s shoulder. “It’s a plane, not the Titanic.”

“Planes can crash,” Dean countered. “The Titanic sunk, it’s possible that this metal thing could just blow up any second.”

A woman in front of Dean turned around, shooting him a glare as she tried to comfort her young son who was now about as freaked out as Dean. “Planes are built to fly. They always check them before they go up,” she stated matter-of-factly. The second she turned her back, Dean was mocking her. This time you punched his arm.

The plane hit a bit of turbulence in the air, and you grit your teeth when Dean’s nails sunk into your arm. “Release the death grip, my arm’s gonna fall off.” He sighed, unleashing your arm. “C’mon, let’s go see if we can get you some water.” You suggested, having had enough of Dean’s panic.

THANK YOU SO MUCH EVERYBODY! You made Ink’s birthday a real thing!!

Thank you also for all your wonderful messages that I didn’t feature here, and all the AMAZING artworks (including videos and pieces of literature) that I didn’t reblog! I feel honored and very very happy about all of this and I’m still amazed that Ink still gathers so much attention and love from everyone *_* <3 

I’ll probably make an official post confirming the switch of art from comyet to @myebi once I remake the designs of the blogs and before or after I redo the FAQ, because it really needs to be remade x_x

Thank you again!! <3

Oo so I was thinking maybe Lance has a ton of weird knowledge because he loves reading books about different things (boats, building, animals/plants). So one day the gang is on a mission and someone gets a bomb strapped to them or there is just a bomb they need to defuse. Everyone is freaking out and trying to think. Lance gets near it and everyone just panics thinking he'll set it off, yelling/langst, then Lance defused it and everyone is in awe or something. I just love your blog!!

oh my god I’m so happy to hear that! I’m glad you enjoy my blog so much!

if it’s ok with you, I’m gonna do more of an overall plot ( and maybe mix in my own headcanons):

so pretty much, Lance grew up in an all Cuban house, he never learned English because he never needed to. he grew up helping his mama around the house or helping his father on his fishing boat.

that’s where Lance first fell in love with the stars. he would ask his dad all the time about them and the constellations they created. his father did his very best to fuel Lance’s interests, but they lived on a very low incomes, and alot of the time Lance didn’t get alot of stuff. he sometimes would skip meals and give hem to his younger siblings so that way they didn’t grow hungry. Lance didn’t get alot of books growing up, and any of the books about space were in English. when he heard about the Garrison, he knew he had to join. only problem was that it was in America, and Lance didn’t know English at all.

so Lance would go to the old library and pick up any English book he could get his hands on. childern’s books, worker manuals, how-to books, he read them all. he would learn both the English language as well as learn how to do anything the books were talking about. another way Lance learned English was watching American shows, he mostly stuck with historical or informational shows. learning how they talked and pronounced the words he’s red over time and time again. (the library only has a certain amount of English books, so he would reread he same ones over and over again) he also learned interesting facts about American history, or watch how to fix a car, he picked it all up.

when he finally applied to the Garrison, he was a ball of nerves. his English wasn’t the best, and his accent heavy in his voice as he sounds out different English words. but you can imagine how proud his family was when Lance didn’t just get accepted, but got a full ride scholarship as well. he promised to keep u his studies and that he wont let them down.

when he does get the Garrison, he realizes how bad his spoken English is compared to everyone else. many time he’ll say the wrong word or forget the English word entirely, and many chalk him up to being the class clown, thinking that he’s doing it on purpose. they don’t realize how much it hurts Lance whenever one of the teachers or another student calls him out for messing up a word or saying the wrong thing. Lance will spend all his time either in the simulation room or in the library, reading over and over different books about the most random of things, trying to both understand the lessons he was just taught as well as broadening his knowledge of the English language. it’s in the library that he met Hunk, and they both gain the first real friend at the Garrison.

now fast forward to the team meeting, and them releasing Allura and Coran, and forming Voltron and what not. Lance missing home so much because he misses his family, and wondering how they’re doing. he misses being able to speak his first Language, he misses calling up his brothers and talking to them explaining complex math and engineering that he learned that day, knowing how much his older brother loves talking about that kind of stuff.

every once in a while, Lance will slip up with his English and it’ll get either a couple of laughs or some scowls, the team thinking that he’s trying to mess around and pull jokes in very serious moments when really he just messed up and didn’t know the right word. Lance will do what he always does when he feels like he’s letting down everyone around him. he goes to the library. it took him awhile to find it, and everything was in Altean, but Lance didn’t mind. he enjoys learning languages and sets to work figuring out the Altean language.

then, some time later, during one to the training exercises, Allura decides to change things up a bit and do a team building exercise. she sets up a bomb (not a real one, that would be crazy) but she says its an old child’s game and while it doesn’t explode, it will make quite the mess if they don’t disarm it in time.

so everyone is talking, trying to figure out how to disarm the bomb, and every time Lance tries to add to the conversation, he gets talked over or ignored. Lance decides to look over the device, trying to recognize anything about it, or any of the words look familiar.  lance remembers about reading one of the books back at the Garrison about how to disarm a bomb (how it got into a space school, he doesn’t really know) and it looks to have the same basic design as one of them. all he really needs is to figure out which wire is the one to cut.

it seems that the others stopped talking at that time to seeing Lance hovering over the device with a pair of pliers, to which they freak out and pull him away, and right when he figured out which wire to cut, and chastise him for trying to do disarm the bomb without them, and some of the comments come off more rude than others and they even put him in a ‘time out zone’ for trying to eal with something very dangerous and sensitive, but they just didn’t want Lance to get hurt because he messed around with it. Lance merely stands back up and walks back over to the bomb, and picking out the right wires, he cuts them, to the teams horror, they brace for their gooey demise.

but nothing happens. the team is amazed that Lance actually defused the bomb. and of course they all crowd around Lance, asking how he did that and why he didn’t tell them he could do it and getting a few cheers of congratulations (mostly from Hunk) lance explains that he would read alot of books and informational shows to understand the English Language, and one of those books was about how to disarm a bomb. of course the others are surprised that English isn’t his first language (they assumed it was since he was at the Garrison) and he continues to explain that when he messes up his words,its not usually on purpose and that he honestly didn’t know the word in English. everyone apologizes about always getting on him when they thought he was joking, and he easily forgives them. afterwards, Shiro even comes up to Lance and personally apologizes about not figuring it out sooner, since he also struggled with learning English when he and his family moved to America. (cue bonding moment!)

and a little extra silliness on the side~

Lance knowing just the weirdest stuff about history, just odd tidbits that he picked u from those history shows, and just spouting them out at the most random of times.

“hey Lance, can you pass me that wrench?”

“did you know that in the 1700s, the french were scared of potatoes.”

“what? dude, that has nothing to do with getting the wrench! why on Earth would you say- you know what, screw it, why were the french scared of potatoes?!”

i know this wasn’t really angsty , but i hope you like it anyways! thank you so much for the ask!

Oral Fixation

Yoongi X Reader (Smut…like really smutty smut oops)

Warnings: Oral fixation, Daddy Kink, (really) Dirty Talk, Sexting, Dom!Yoongi

Request HIIIII!!! I love you blog so much omg, could you do Yoongi texts when he sexts you? But like… really smutty…. Omg I’m feel so very not pure 🙈🙈-Anon

A/N Y’all…this is the most impure thing I have ever made in my life. Like I need to be drown in holy water, I will see everyone who reads this in hell bc that’s where we’re all going. This escalated so much like wow. This is SUPER smutty so if it’s not your thing please don’t read it. This is not meant to make anyone uncomfortable.

I like to think maybe Robbie has some strength to his frame from messing around with so many metal parts and dragging around giant canons and everything else he does that in a moment of emergency he just picks up Sportakook (bridal or over his shoulder, either way) and runs for dear life instead of Sportanerd grabbing him and everyone is confused and Sportacute is flustered because no one has carried him since he was a young babe and Robbie is confused as of why Sportaflop is so red and– yea… but

We need more Stronger-than-we-thought-he-was Robbie Rotten

One more thing…

This is a “shock event.”

It feels unpredictable, emotional, impulsive and irrational. And it will likely turn the narrative quickly on it’s head. There’s a lot of different ways it can turn it, and right now, we don’t know what that is. 

I would caution everyone to try and remain wary of information we get about the event for the next couple of days and not to blame each other on the bumpy ride back to fandom “normalcy.” There’s going to be a lot of quickly changing information, so we need to be on our toes and try to stay objective. 

Right now, it’s ok to be sad for Louis. It’s ok to feel confused and powerless to blog, participate, etc. But don’t let it become a divisive thing if we can help it. That will exacerbate the chaos.
