Take a Break

I’m taking a break from tumblr. Like I’m completely logging off and everything for a few days. Maybe longer.

Im having some bad mental health days and with that comes the idea that my art is the worst. I’m not improving as quickly as I’d like. I need to go back to traditional art for awhile, read some books, center myself. I am getting short tempered, stressed, and feeling like a really unpleasant person and I don’t want that to be who I am.

It also means, even though I just started it, I’m putting my ask blog on hold.

If you need to get in touch with me, I do have a twitter. I don’t post a lot on there and mostly follow funny twitter accounts and other art “blogs” but I do check it regularly. You can find me @Lozeyjones on twitter. 

I’ll reblog this once more for the day crowd but as of now I’m taking a vacation away from this site. I can’t handle much anymore.

Again, my twitter is @lozeyjones

I also check deviantart frequently (every day) so you can find me there as just Lozey.

I’m sorry I’ll be absent for awhile, but I do think that to feel better about myself and my art, I need to get off of this website to cool down and rethink things.

I hope everyone else is doing fine, however. I’ll just be on for the next 24 hours so if you need to let me know anything, tell me now or I won’t be able to get back to you for some time.

Thanks for understanding, and goodnight <3

You know in movies how someone inserts a needle full of some sedative into someone (usually incorrectly) and said person just drops like a rock, immediately unconscious. How accurate is that? Are there any drugs that could have that effect on someone? Love this blog btw

Hey there, nonny! No, this is not an accurate trope.

There are two masterposts relevant to this that I suggest you give a read:

BS Medical Tropes that Need to Die, 2/? : Making People Unconscious


Tropes Done Right: Rendering Someone Unconscious

To quote the first article,

Here’s the thing. There is nothing that I know of that can cause unconsciousness as quickly As Seen On TV™. The only drug I know that works even remotely that fast is a bolus of propofol, which is a surgical anesthetic. The problem is, propofol MUST go IV; it can’t be injected into a muscle like that.

So unfortunately, dearest nonny, no, you cannot have a character inject a sedative into the neck (arrrrgh) and have it simply drop the subdued character like a stone. For the closest, most realistic version I can think of, check out the second article!

(You can have someone approach a character who already has an IV in place and turn them off like a lightswitch with propofol, but there are other things that need to be done with that, like airway protection and potentially the use of IV fluids.)

I hope these resources have been useful to you!!

Just when he’s about to stop clicking the next button and claim defeat, maybe put some posters up around town, he’s met with a picture of white cardstock lying on a table, words written in black Sharpie with careful, deliberate strokes. “Hiiii,” it reads, “if you’re reading this, you’ve found my camera! I’d love it if you could contact me so I can get it back. It’d be the nice thing to do.”

Why I love the Doctor/Rose fandom

Do you know what? I love the Doctor/Rose fandom. Periodically we fall into a gloomy mood where we feel like we’re dying as a fandom, or things aren’t like what they used to be. For just a moment, I want to focus on the cool things happening. 

Last week, over 20 self-rec lists were solicited in ask boxes. The fic reading/writing community is so incredibly encouraging, and this is perhaps the best indication of that lately. It wasn’t just the established, popular writers who got asks, either. I reblogged several from newer authors and some who don’t get as much exposure. That made my heart happy. 

The addition of several new fic prompt/rec blogs in the last month is a good sign that we aren’t dying. People love this ship enough that they want to inspire our creators to new works. That’s a high level of involvement and dedication to the fandom, and it’s not something you find in dying fandoms. 

We’ve talked a lot about the struggle new authors have to get recognised, so @legendslikestardust dedicates a weekly post to finding a new author and promoting them on the blog. They also specifically promote SFW fanfic, since another concern is how much harder it is to get noticed if you don’t write smut.

But smut is still a part of fandom, and it’s a part many people love, so the same people who run that blog also run @dwsmutfest to support that side of the fandom. 

If you like visual prompts, @dwficprompts posts pictures every day to get your creative mind going. I’ve gotten several plot bunnies based on these pics–it’s fantastic. 

And of course, I started @doctorroseprompts because that’s where my passion is. After reblogging prompts from other prompt blogs with, “This could be Doctor/Rose…” and giving a scenario, starting my own prompt blog just seemed like the logical next step. 

And as a prompt blog owner, nothing has made me happier this month than seeing people combining the prompts for all these blogs. The more prompts there are, the more new fanfic we get. February has proven that. To see people taking a prompt from their Fluffuary card and adding it to one of our Valentine’s prompts, or basing their story on a picture from @dwficprompts… it’s just a great, great thing.

I love the Doctor/Rose fandom because I love the people in it, and the way we encourage each other. I love that instead of giving up when it seemed like maybe we were dying, members of our fandom have invested themselves in its revitalisation. This is why we are amazing, and this is why I’m proud to be a part of this little corner of the internet.

Can we get a few other tidbits about you and your girlfriend? I'm sorry, I know this is personal and it's okay if you don't answer, I just love reading those stories. They give me hope. (But I meant that you don't have to answer this!!)

Hmmmmm ummmmm she loves running at me and having me catch her, she’s a really great cook even though she doesn’t think she is, we watch TV really differently but also really the same, we’re both massive nerds and like everything we got each other as holiday gifts were comic-related, by coincidence, we didn’t coordinate it, and um… she loves learning new things and we both love books and we like the same people and dislike the same people and ummmmmm a straight-up story?

When we were driving through Nevada, we played Daughtry’s Home and the Sanvers Coming Home song, and it was… I knew for certain then (I’d known it before, too, but there was so much clarity, then) that I would do anything for her, go anywhere for her, just…

So, I have to hold this presentation about someone, something that inspires me for the study I do. AND, I’m studying to be a Music Video Director, so you can imagine that B.A.P is one of my biggest inspirational sources.

But now I have to hold a presenation, and I want to do it about the Skydive video.
But, I can’t speak or read Korean. And to understand the video clip better I’d love to know what is written on all the things Daehyun recieves. I know it’s something like: Kill Himchan ect.
But I don’t know all of them. And those papers with names and pictures. And I’d really love you forever if someone could help me out. Because I can’t do this alone

Thank you so much for reading this. ♡


The lovely @crossedbeams tagged me to celebrate a female friendship that is important to me and I’m going to try doing that! 

I’m just going to start out by accepting the fact that this won’t be nearly as eloquently written as I want it to be. I don’t even know what to write, and reading the other #FemaleFriendshipFriday posts makes me happy while scaring me to death, but I will try and see where this takes me.. 

I’m used to being around people who don’t lift each other up but instead tear each other apart - and I’m part of this. I see no point in denying it. I used to think I had a healthy, strong relationship to my mom, but a lot of things made me realize that it wasn’t so. We love each other but we have stopped speaking the same language. My hope is that we can find a common ground someday. My family is complicated. But I wouldn’t know what to do without my older sister. She’s without doubt the reason why I’m here today. She challenges me, she keeps me grounded, she makes me see more clearly, she makes me relax, and she makes me hopeful. There tend to be some kind of barrier between us, and I’m not sure we’d be friends if we weren’t sisters, but we are sisters, and it makes me grateful. We couldn’t be more different, I’m fire and she’s water, but it’s magic when we make it work, and we do. 

I also have a little sister, and it’s scary how much we are alike, which makes our relationship complicated. Two Nannas are 1,5 too many. But I love her so incredibly much, and I’m finally starting to be in a position where I can be the sister I’ve wanted to be for such a long time.

The reason why I’m able to do that is because of you. The women of Tumblr. 

I was a completely other person when I first got here. I didn’t really have a sense of direction, I’m not sure I do now, but I feel more comfortable with not knowing. All of you inspire me to do better, to help, to be more selfless, to show up and do my best, to be more honest, and all of you represent something I aspire to be. All of you mostly lift each other up and it’s fantastic and inspiring to see - much needed too.

I am not who I want to be but hopefully I’ll get there. 

Thank you.

(For my Stranger Things peeps! I love my wrestling buddies too, I’ll do a post for ya’ll later, I promise!) I apologize for the mess this probably is, I’m still pretty Tumblr inept. If I forgot anyone please set me straight and I’ll fix it lol. Also if anyone else wants their fanfic pages or anything added, lemme know!

Axis25′s Theory Corner

Hello friends and followers, and welcome back to another exciting instalment of Axis25’s theory corner! And I think this should go without saying but there will be spoilers for ‘Just Friends’ in today’s theory so I will just put this continue reading thing here and we will be on our way.

Keep reading

anonymous asked:

Hi Emma! First of all I love your recs it seems like you spend so much time thinking about them! I think everyone really appreciates what you do 😊 Do you read WIPs? If so what are you reading at the moment? Can you rec me any pretty please? 😄

AGH THANK YOU :’) I do spend a lot of time thinking about my recs, I’m glad it shows lmao. I actually don’t read WIPs anymore as I have too many bad experiences with abandoned ones. However, I’d be happy to share some excellent fics I’ve been reading over the past couple of weeks:

What Real Thing? by loveglowsinthedark (12k)
They don’t cuddle, they don’t talk about their relationship (or lack thereof) and they certainly never fall asleep in each other’s arms.
(AMAZING FIC. I LOVE IT. And I cried. See, we have Auror partners, FWBs, dialogue SO on point, niiice writing, and Draco in particular was lovely.)

Headlights in the Snow by Sara’s Girl (71k)
What’s big and purple and smells like tea? Harry is about to find out.
(This is a really well-written ball of fluff and warmth and humor. I love the characterizations, the feelings, and the vast amount of creative detail.)

In Which Harry is Magnetic North and Draco is An Idiot by bryoneybrynn (13k)
For as long as he can remember, Draco’s been bringing fake dates to his family’s annual Yuletide celebration in order to evade his mother’s matchmaking. This year, Potter’s posing as his pretend boyfriend. But as the party gets underway, it gets unclear who’s playing who, who’s pretending what, who’s not pretending at all, and what the game really is. Confused? Yeah, so is Draco…
(I’m so into the way Harry is in this, assertive and suave in public but an awkward dork in private. I LOVE this fic and the writing is oh-so-good.)

Tie Me Up in Knots by lauren3210 (2k)
“Harry, are you wearing a Slytherin tie?”
(Inspired by this gif set. Perfect for the prompt, very passionate, well-written, and also so funny?? The idea is just amazing. I love this one as well.)

Written on the Heart by who_la_hoop (113k)
Harry doesn’t mind that so many Slytherins from his year have returned to finish their NEWTs, really he doesn’t. It’s just – do they have to be so friendly? He’s not prejudiced, really he’s not. It’s just – they’ve got to be up to something, right? Unnerved by the attention he’s attracting from everyone – the Slytherins are the least of it, to be fair – and struggling with a raft of changes to Hogwarts itself, Harry wishes he could be happy that one constant remains: Draco Malfoy really fucking hates him.
(I quite enjoyed this looong slow burn. They fight each other at every turn and they’re so real, there are SOUL MARKS, and lots of hilarious moments.)

Security by bixgirl1 (29k)
A few years after the War, Harry is running a Wizarding Securities company, and Draco finds himself in need of some additional safety.
(Once the angst kicked in here, I was a goner. I was sobbing, really. Sweet sweet Drarry, pining, acceptance. The writing is good as well.)

Pretty Fond of Not Very Good Ideas by lq_traintracks (4.9k)
Harry Peterson, Orderer Extraordinaire, and his trusty sidekick, Ray. Or: Harry’s been hit with a memory charm, but it’s okay because he realises he’s bent for Draco Malfoy.
(AGHH I know I just recced this one but it has to be repeated, I love this one so much. Hilarious, all kinds of hot, and too many brilliant moments. Hell yes.)

Something I Don’t Want to Stop by traintracks (16k)
It’s Harry and Draco’s eight year, the Houses have been all but demolished in favor of unity, and they’re forced to room together. How ever will they cope?
(The plot is so simple and yet everything is so lovely, you know? I enjoyed it all, the kissing, how they came to change their minds… so sweet.)


That happened.
If the killer is reading this, don’t worry, I’m not mad at you or anything, since C was marked and it’s only an rp.

Honestly, even though probably hardly anyone following me knows who C is, I just needed to make this post because I’ve honestly never felt so attached to an oc that wasn’t mine before. The fact that they were nonbinary was probably reason I got so invested in their character from the very start, since of often get attached to people and characters that have similarities to me. Also, I’m absolutely in love with rude characters, and C is just 👌👌👌👌💯💯💯💯😩😩😩
I mean what

Around the middle of chapter one I was like
Oh shit C is pretty cool.
Then I found out CD was a thing and
I still practically worship that ship
Its a+




I literally came back from school and the rp had already started, so I focused on that.
But then I got pings from Ward and was like
Oh yeah I forgot. Some fuck is dying today
And at first I only saw Cyprus.
And I wasn’t too sad cause anyone could see that coming.
But then
saw C’s name in red
and had a fucking heartattack.
My brother was sitting next to me and I fuckinG GASPED.
And then I ran to my room so I could mourn in peace.

Oh yeah
And then Emma made Dimitri angst and
even though I knew it would happen, I still hate her.
Emma if you’re reading this, I hate you.

Anyways to sum it up
I love C
I hate Emma
I’m crying

Apologies for the really fucking long post

Here’s the fuckers that were mentioned:

First Day of School (Namjoon)

 And now it is time for one half of Vmon, my lowkey spirit animal, our amazing leader who looks so fucking good in purple hair oh my lord like I knew he was gonna make it look good bc it’s joon but he makes it look beyond good, this is such a look I’m loving every second, Kim Namjoon aka Rap Monster aka joon

  • All of the father related posts are here
  • For everyone that hasn’t read the original father!joon post, he has two bbys, a daughter and a son, the son being his youngest
  • To avoid repetition and so this post doesn’t get too long, I will be lumping some of the things together since they’d be pretty similar anyways, like dropping them off at school, spending mornings together etc.
  • Okay so the bbys are super cute of course they are they have Kim Namjoon as their father, they both have those long limbs that trip them up sometimes, they got the dimples they got those cute smiles and the warm eyes, they’re teeny tiny joons
  • Seeing the three of them together is so cute bc Namjoon is the super clumsy member right he’s the “god of destruction” but with his bbys, he’s extra gentle, he treats them like they’re made out of glass bc he just loves them so much and he doesn’t wanna hold them too tight or hurt them in any way bc they’re so smol compared to him
  • Even though they’re some of the taller bbys in the group, the only bby that’s taller than them rn is Tae’s oldest son but bby boy becomes one of the tallest of the bunch
  • They are s u p e r excited for school, we all know how smart Namjoon is and his bbys are super smart for their age, I feel like he’d be the parent that actually makes learning fun like he doesn’t push them to learn anything immediately, he takes his time with their words and forming sentences and colors and names of objects around the house but he makes it into a game
  • Like they have those lil flashcard kits and they get a chocolate chip for every card they can guess and a kiss if they don’t get it bc as long as they’re trying their best, he’s happy, he’s in no rush for them to grow up
  • So they’re really excited about going to school and being able to learn and play with their friends and dress up every day bc they lo ve fashion and Namjoon loves seeing them develop their own styles like he totally lets them pick out their own outfits
  • Mornings with the Kims are really really cuddly and giggly and cute, everyone is smiling and there are so many dimples happening
  • They both welcome themselves into your bed every morning and jump all over you and joon to wake you up but you can’t be mad at that when they’re just so damn cute and giggly and excited to start the day
  • They have to have their good morning kisses and hugs and it normally turns into a cuddle session while joon is trying to get his eyes to stay open
  • The bbys get carried downstairs by you and joon and then they kinda just don’t let go from there, they like being up high and they also like being able to just hug the both of you the entire time bc they’re affectionate lil munchkins
  • All four of you make breakfast together and the bbys have tiny aprons that match you and joon’s, even if breakfast is just like a bagel or something super quick that requires little to no prep, they still love to wear their aprons
  • Namjoon isn’t gonna stop them either bc they look so cute, he goes into a giggle fit whenever bby girl helps bby boy tie his apron bc his tiny bbys they’re so sweet
  • On the first day of school, they are extra excited in the morning, they keep giggling and talking to joon and he’s trying to wake up as quick as he can bc understanding a kid’s quick rambling when you don’t even know whether you’re awake or asleep is tricky enough when you don’t have another bby adding to the conversation and he just has to laugh bc he’s not fully sure they even know what they’re talking about anymore
  • One second, they’re planning their outfits the next they’re talking about breakfast then it’s something with a pony?? but joon’s used to it, if he can decipher a toddler’s blabber, he can understand them when they’re excited
  • Their first day outfits are really cute tbh I’ve been so ready for this post all week bc I already know exactly what I think they’d wear
  • Bby girl wears these overalls with a heart shaped pocket and a polka dot shirt underneath it but if you look super close, the polka dots are actually heart shaped as well and she of course has a jacket on over it bc it’s cold and she has on cute flats that have hearts all over them and then she has Namjoon help her put on a bracelet with an arrow on it so it can be “cupid’s arrow” she has a concept for this (Namjoon just recently explained what the idea of Cupid was)
  • Her hair is put into a bun bc she doesn’t like having it in her face when she’s playing and she has on a head band with polka dots to tie it back into the outfit (Namjoon helps her with that one)
  • Bby boy’s outfit is a gray sweater type of shirt with an owl on it and some black bby jeans and tiny sneakers and he has his coat on over it as well and he wears a matching bracelet with bby girl, they both have bracelets that have the first letter of their names on it
  • He wears a beanie to help tame his hair bc that can be get messy real quick but Namjoon makes sure it looks cute and not like it was just tossed on, he styles his hair to make sure it still looks A+
  • Bby girl’s favorite show is Cailou so that’s her lunchbox but her backpack is a Word World backpack, bby boy’s is an Arthur backpack and then a Blue’s Clues lunchbox bc that’s his favorite show
  • Saying goodbye is a lot harder than joon was expecting like he thought he was ready for it, he thought he was ready to see his munchkins walk into their very first classroom and start learning but he can’t let go after he hugs them
  • He was expecting it to be a lil sad for him bc obviously his bbys are growing up and that’s a bit bittersweet but he wasn’t expecting to have to start tearing up bc he’s so proud and happy but at the same time he doesn’t really wanna let them go
  • And he thinks that with bby boy, it’ll be different bc he’s already done the whole first day of school with bby girl and she still goes to school every day but it’s just as hard to let go of him
  • He gives them really long hugs and he keeps kissing their heads and he makes sure they know all the things, that they can tell the teacher to call him if they need anything, if they don’t feel well, if they wanna come home etc. and it’s pretty clear he’s stalling
  • They make sure to give him lots of kisses and just hug him bc saying goodbye, even if it’s only for a few hours, is hard for them too, they’ve always been able to run to Namjoon for everything, they’ve always had him be their playmate and their cuddle buddy and the one they went to when they were injured or scared, going off into a new environment without him there makes them a bit nervous
  • They ask him to walk them inside and hold their hand until they find their “cousins” (the other boys’ kids) so that they aren’t alone and of course, Namjoon is more than happy to be there for them for that
  • He leans down to their level and gives them one more hug before they run off to play with their friends
  • “I’ll see you when you get home okay? I love you, have lots of fun, if you paint something, we can hang it up on the fridge when you get home, I’ll even let you pick the spot”

First of all, I feel a need to talk about Merietta for you, guys, to understand this one. The girl has five younger siblings (but I couldn’t found one photo with five kids, so sorry), she likes to read and walk outdoors, so I sort of put those two things together. she is arromantic (Which I found super cool! So I wanted to put a flag, because the quote would not be enough), I know she likes animals (any animal) but since she has a parrot on her shoulder and I found this cute photo, I thought there would be no problems. Besides, since she loves animals and has a way with them, I figured this image would be cool, too. She likes gardening, cooking and how to take care of the house! 

I know very little about arromantics, but I did my research and I got really mad cuz there are so many romantic quotes! I could not find one to represent your girl! It was then that I remembered this passage of The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince). I really hope you liked it! Here you go @the-word-of-the-month-is-sin!
