things that make me hate people

GET TO KNOW ME MEME: favourite male characters [3/5]
➝ Jax Teller (Sons of Anarchy)

It’s hard not to hate. People. Things. Institutions. When they break your spirit and take pleasure in watching you bleed, hate is the only thing that makes sense. But I know what hate does to a man. It tears him apart. Turns him into something he’s not. Something he’d promised himself he’d never become.

“I did you a favor, starting that fire. You’ll never have to look at those horribly painted walls again!”

“You know I hate these guessing games. You’re wasting my time.”

“I’ve stopped helping people, because in my every attempt, somehow I make things worse.”

“If you wanted me on your side, all you had to do was bribe me.”

“The headphones weren’t clear enough, apparently. These mean I don’t want to talk.”

“Are you seriously hiding a merfolk in your inflatable pool? I don’t know about you, but I can see them quite clearly.”

PSA

Okay I don’t do call out posts but HOLY FUCKBALLS. Everyone, stay the HELL away from miss-freddie-lounds, they’re very unstable. I disagreed with one of their headcanon posts on Freddie not being a vegetarian (politely, not calling them names or anything that warranted the following interaction) and subsequently got a wall of text calling me an asshole and a nazi fangirl with no life. They also apparently hate Hannigram and don’t seem to think too highly of Bryan Fuller. 

Since I’m German I do NOT react well to people using the Nazi regime to make a cheap throwaway insult, so I reminded them that the Holocaust was a thing, and subsequently got a LOT of hate. I’m talking continuous string of Fuck You’s and accusing me of getting off on Holocaust victims from a secondary account (fannibalcuntbag, though I believe they made it simply to attack me after I blocked them) levels of hate. Don’t interact with them. Not even to confront them about this. Stay safe, and stay the hell away. 

If you’re reading this somehow, miss-freddie-lounds, don’t try to contact me again. I’ll block every single one of your new accounts. I also have screenshots of your messages, so don’t even try to claim that I’m making this up.

I don’t have a problem with people talking about hating school but when they are like DESTROOOOOOY SCHOOOOOOOOOL I feel so fucking uncomfortable because I like and need routines and this is not because I am content to be a brainless factory worker (and that way of looking at factory workers is kind of ick)

It’s only now that I am an adult that not having a routine doesn’t make me SO ANXIOUS I CAN DO ABSOLUTELY NONE OF THE THINGS

People are like “NoO WHY dO yoU HATE jOhnNy GuITAR! ITs A GOoD song” 

Yeah i agree with you..it IS a good song but…listen….i dont know about you… but i hear it in the game few times more than the other songs…and imagine me(my courier) after hearing it too many damn times switching to other radio station AND THERE HE IS AGAIN! …so I go ok… I am near Black Mountain maybe there is something else…GUESS WHAT..Johnny Guitar again..I am just that lucky…. so meh…I can just turn off the radio..listening to wind n crickets or whatever ambient sound is in the background….. and then you can hear…reeeaaallly quiet like… Johnny Guitar playing from some abandoned radio in the wastes… 

im going to try to be nice to myself because i know how sad it makes me to see people i love be mean to themselves. i should make it so the people who love me don’t have to worry about me by taking good care of the thing they love

i hate myself so much but if i just take out ‘myself’ and replace it with ‘thing that makes people i love happy and that they would want to be well taken care of’ then maybe i can start taking bigger steps

anonymous asked:

Hi, 7goodangel. I am here to ask you about PaperJam as a shy, smol and innocent being (mainly thegreatrouge made him be). There has been some conflicts regarding his trait. Some said his canonical personality is a jerk, like what you wrote in his bio / info and some said that is severely wrong and being shy, (which made him shipped with Fresh), is his canonical personality. What are your thoughts about this? I mean, it is your character and people are taking control of it. Don't you disagree?

Well… I have talked to people and seen public conversations and this has happened several times to me over months. I guess I’ve gotten a little numb to it now… or maybe it’s due to school that I haven’t given it the attention that it deserves. Probably due to school. 

I just can’t update constantly like others - even though some others in school were and are able to update constantly. I can’t keep going around and holding up my bio of PJ and police people. It’s exhausting to me… it really takes up the small bit of free time I have. 

I think after I get a solid job that I’ll be able to go around better… but anyway - back to your question. 


While I love seeing interpretations and do not want people to be limited by something and have their imaginations go forth… it’s proving that a huge con comes with that mentality - which you have pointed out. A lot of people swear that PJ is the cute, innocent interpretation that really, did get PJ popular in the first place. While I did have him as a jerk from the beginning - I kinda kept that info to my RP blog - so you could say it is my fault this is all happening and I do think that. I could of done something to make it not as bad as it is now… 

It’s just like the NSFW stuff… people just assume the first thing and run with it. And it really does make me feel like I really am not needed for my own character at points. 

It’s a struggle - I don’t want to have people stop interpreting PJ within AUs… but I also don’t want people to just see him as an innocent child to ship with Fresh. 

And I’m still trying to find the best solution to it. 

But… I feel like the damage is already done. It’s too late for me to talk to all of these people going around swearing on their life that PJ is canoncally like Rouge’s interpretation/AUs. It feels like an hopeless battle to me. 

And I guess I needed someone to ask me this question so then I can fully say my thoughts on this. 

So in short, while I love creativity and don’t want to snuff it out (considering some people would probably think I’m doing that already with saying “No Sin”), I still don’t like it. It irritates me, irks me, frustrates me, and I feel like even as the person who thought of PJ in the first place, my voice isn’t enough. Communities seem like they don’t care about artists unless they reach a ‘certain goal of popularity’ or seem like they have a more professional style of art. I know I do not reach either of those titles. 

People misspell my username all the time - I actually claimed ‘7goodangle’ on tumblr for that reason.

People still say “I’m too lazy to find who made PJ” when they clearly mentioned they looked at the bio on the wiki. 

People still go around arguing others on the canon ship of OmniPJ and swearing that FreshPaper is the true canon ship, when all people are pointing out is that they need to keep the canon ship in mind when going around with information.

Even just basic personality traits… and these things are happening on sites that I do not nor want an account for. 

I still want others to have fun - to be happy; but I don’t know… I guess I’m cutting out my own happiness to get everyone else happy? I want to eventually write a version of PJ within his own universe and story… and he is more like the version I created within the UT verse. Not exact - but close. Though who knows… I might shove PJ to the side and replace his role with another character. I’m still weighing options.

Cause PJ was the first character I ever put this much time and thought into… my first character that was balanced, well rounded…

And what happens?

…well.

You said it Anon. 

They took it - changed it (initially as an AU but now people think it’s canon) - and I can’t do much about it. Due to school and not much free-time… due to how many don’t know the true creator… and just back talking anyone who is just mentioning it to people who swear by it. 

As an artist and a character designer…

It makes me not want to show designs, characters, and stories ever again online.

Considering if this is how I was treated on the first one… why even take a chance at a second one? If it has brought me so much stress, frustration, and time… why even try it again?

I said I was only going to do fanart so if anyone stole it, it didn’t really matter. 
I think I should have stuck with that thought process. 

In conclusion, there are some major things to take away here. First – that yes, I do not like how it has skewed this far to the point of arguing over a fandom version with the canon. Canon is canon and I get the different AUs – this is too far. Way too far. I am emotionally drained from this – from this whole mess that I have been defending throughout majority of PJ’s lifespan. I will state this – Paper Jam is my character. He is my original character that I created more than a year ago. And the UT AU fandom took my character and warped him to something he is not and all of his original meaning is lost. I do not like to hurt others or make other sad – but I must put my foot fully down. This miscommunication needs to stop. I am tired of repeating things over and over and I have past my breaking point time and time again. I just want people to see PJ how he really is… and I wish that people could be focusing more on the reality of him instead of the alternate that they all claim as truth.

Final words: I still like Undertale – I still like creating characters and having fun – but the Undertale AU fandom is ridiculous now. The Amino UT community is insanity in an app, and there is a lot of stuff that has made many artists and creators to their breaking point and leaving the fandom entirely. Everyone in this fandom needs to take ten steps back and look at what they are doing. Go back to the game. Play it again – watch your favorite let’s player’s videos of it again. 

And just… food for thought… please don’t jump the gun on someone else’s OC’s personality and actions. 

I do not want anyone to experience what I had.

... Somehow, Still Talking About This Captain America Shit (Now With Bonus Spider-Man and Agents of SHIELD)

So now Secret Empire has revealed its Shyamalan Twist and given the readers a Good Guy Steve Rogers as well as Hydra Cap, and the kinds of dickbags who, when this whole bullshit began were dismissing people’s complaints with “oh come on, don’t you know how comics works, it’s all going to be put back at the end, blah blah blah…” are crowing I-Told-You-So’s.

But here’s the thing:

Yeah, fucknuts.  We always knew this.

In light of an unfortunate display of ignorance I witnessed today, let me take a moment to make something blatantly clear, for anybody that needs it:

-making fun of someone for using a fidget spinner, to the point of them displaying obvious embarrassment and shame, is disgusting. 

-when you say things like “Oh my GOD, I hate those spinners! They’re so annoying, what are they even for haha” you are being willfully ignorant. Spinners are marketed towards people with anxiety, PTSD, OCD, ADD/ADHD, Autistic people, and many other people with brains different from yours that need an outlet to focus, relax, relieve sensory-related issues, and many other things that yours does automatically. Most of the ones I see advertised even specify “For anxiety/stress/ADHD/Autism/etc”

-Making fun of someone for other behaviors such as rocking, hand flapping, echolalia, hair twirling, skin picking, hair pulling, etc is in fact, also a shitty thing of you to do. It’s also unnecessary, cruel, and humiliates the person who is doing those things.

-Don’t make fun of people who use fidget spinners. Don’t make fun of people who stim. I don’t give a rat’s ass if you think it’s unnecessary, or it “looks weird” or it “looks gross.” Don’t do it. You KNOW what you’re doing. I know what you’re doing. I’ve had it, I’m done.

Dear rest of the Spn Fandom,

What Destiel is NOT about.

1. Hating Sam/Jared
Okay, I have no idea where this one started, but honestly I don’t care what you ship if you hate on either of my tol cinnamon roll babies, YOU WILL BE FACING MY WRATH. ALL 5'2 OF IT.

2. Hating the women that they were with.
Personally, I love Jo and Lisa. Cassie was just there for an episode, so I don’t really have any opinions on here.
I don’t like Meg for other reasons (her character inconsistency was annoying and her voice got on all my nerves) but hating her just because she kissed Cas is pretty shallow.

3. Two hot men kissing.
Right. This. Look, if the only reason that you ship them is that it would be hot to see them kiss, I’d just like to tell you that YER A FUCKBUTT, HARRY. Other people can probably explain this better, but you’re fetishising a whole community and you need to stop. Now. And get off my blog while you’re at it.

4. Hating on their wives.
This is probably more of a Cockles thing than a Destiel one, but most of the Cockles shippers that I’ve encountered were all awesome people, so I’ll say it on their behalf, we don’t hate Danneel and Vicki, okay? Seriously, why would anybody, when they make Misha and Jensen so happy?

5. Making everything gay/The gay agenda
No. No. Say it with me, no. We do not ship them because they’re both men
We ship them because they have amazing chemistry and it makes sense that Dean and Cas be together. And it would obviously be the bisexual agenda, if it was an agenda. Which it’s not. At all. *Cackles in the distance*

• What Destiel is about

1. Unconditional Love
2. Dean finally realizing that he's​ not damaged and deserves love. Also realizimg that he’s not the perfect manly man soldier that John raised him to be, and that’s okay.
3. Cas understanding that he will always have a home with Dean (and Sam, by extension)
4. Two people who help each other to be better people.
5. Two people who constantly screw up, but forgive each other, because that’s what love is about.
6. Seeing people at their worst, and still loving them. (Dean forgiving Cas after he becomes God and Cas telling him that he deserves to be saved)
7. Unconditional love (I’m sorry, I’ll never be over the “I’d rather have you, cursed or not.”)
8. Both of them, giving up so much for each other.
9. Sticking up for each other

• Obviously I can’t speak for the entire fandom, but these are my views, and generally the views of people that I’ve encountered. Thanks for taking the time out to read it!

Sincerely,
A Destiheller

Justice League is a movie I’ve been waiting for for my entire life so let me make one thing abundantly clear: it literally doesn’t fucking matter right now.

If you are glad Zack had to leave, if you are glad Whedon (who two weeks ago celebrated his own mother being dead) is taking over, if you are glad the movie is delayed, if you give a shit about a movie right now when a man who receives nothing but unjustified hate on a near constant basis has had to stop working out of intense emotional grief, you are literal fucking garbage.

I have already read multiple comments saying they’re glad his daughter is dead. I’ve read people insult him because this is “the first they’re hearing of it” so they don’t believe him. And everybody’s probably read people just celebrating the shift in general by now.

 I don’t subscribe to the idea that the internet is the worst of the worst, there are clearly worse people in the ‘real world’, but it’s really fucking hard to keep that belief when I see people celebrating a human being losing a fight that myself and millions of people have fought. It’s fucking disgusting.

THE SIGNS AS THINGS I'VE SAID BEFORE
  • Aries: People hold hands? Psh I can't relate, I throw hands like a real man.
  • Taurus: [puts on fake glasses] It's time to read some hoes.
  • Gemini: Me actually liking someone? Sounds fake, I just like the validation that I'm not complete trash.
  • Cancer: I'm internally screaming right now because the one day I decide to wear makeup I keep crying. My eyelashes are clumping together and I cannot. I refuse.
  • Leo: Do you ever see the sun and you're like ... Man, I'd love to punch it because same. I want to punch the sun so hard. My only chance to be fist-kissed by a hottie.
  • Virgo: I feel bad that I don't recycle. I just can't be inspired to do it because I still feel terrible about life after doing so. [throws water bottle in recycling bin] Oh look, I still have depression!
  • Libra: I want to have a flowery aesthetic... I need a group of friends that are always willing to take pictures of frolicking through flower fields.
  • Scorpio: I love the fact that no one really knows anything about me, but it also makes me kind of sad at the same time. What is my legacy besides being the mysterious and hot one?
  • Sagittarius: The only person in this world who will never break my heart is education connection lady. She's still in 2009 singing about her education experience and I refuse to believe anything different.
  • Capricorn: I've spent 10 hours of my life listening to the education connection song. If I don't make it to college, then I may as well just die.
  • Aquarius: Other people around me are always like "I LOVE YOU! OMG, I LOVE YOU!" Meanwhile I'm just eating my imaginary popcorn thinking about how much I hate everyone.
  • Pisces: I'm eating five hour old chicken nuggets and I'm sad. I don't think I'll finish them... I have to throw them away... This is probably the worst thing I've ever done in my life.

ka-tater-tot  asked:

is it true that holster kind of dislikes jack? i thought that was just a headcanon-ish post someone made awhile back. that makes me sad

Ngozi mentioned it once or twice on the private Patreon blog and in streams, and you can kind of see it if you squint? I was kind of happy that fandom ignored that thing because I kept thinking to myself, “Fandom would blow it out of ALL PROPORTION and think Holster HATES Jack” when no–they’re still friends. Holster was 110% there helping Jack choose which NHL team to sign with. They have each other’s backs. 

It’s more true to say that Holster is frequently grumpy and disgruntled with many people, and Jack is one of the people he’s grumpy with. He’s willing to see Jack’s shortcomings and he knows that Jack is not The Amazing Man on a Pedestal. They’re still friends and they still wrassle, but Holster is way more genuinely fond of Bitty than of Jack.

What happened in Manchester is absolutely appalling and it saddens me that innocent lives were lost because of a selfish cunt’s warped perception of ideology, or selfish self imposed goals. Admittedly, I don’t know enough about what happened.

The last thing anybody needs right now is shitty journalists making poorly timed jokes, or an attention seeking toolbox trying to get people to notice them by any means.

I urge everyone to block Onision, Mr. Leavitt and anybody who posts shit like this at the time of any tragedy. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never followed them, or look at their content. They just don’t deserve to be seen or heard. There’s no place for hate. No place for petty one-upmanship. And certainly no place for incredibly offensive jokes.

rachelhanke  asked:

Hey Charlie! First off, I adore your art. It gives me all the feels. Secondly, since you're primarily a self taught artist I'm wondering if you have any resources you strongly recommend for someone hoping to someday have a similar job to yours in concept art? If you've already answered this question just let me know and I'll comb through your blog to find it!

ESSAY IMPENDING.

I think, along with resources, I’d always recommend having a good idea of what ‘area’ you want to work in too. My job is kind of a strange one (in that it’s an house job but we’re not producing the games or films or actual products.) We are a step in the production line. I get to be part of sweet projects, but also I get to be part of many… I’m not locked into whatever a studio might be making for 2 or 3 years etc. My fingers are in a lotta pies.

The reason I say that is because a lot of people coming into concept will likely need more skills than I have. I am 95% a 2D artist. I work with 3D but very rarely, and not enough to know the inns and outs. I like 2D… and I consider illustration to be the sweetest spot of all the work I do, so I’m quite happy with that balance (and I’m an old fucking curmudgeon and I don’t wanna learn no 3D.)

If you went for a traditional role in a games studio, it will probably be more expected for you to be fluent in 3D. Not always of course! But it’s likely another good skillset to have. Purely 2D (just art focused) roles are not something that I see as often as mutiltasking roles. Which makes a lot of sense. 2D art is often mostly needed at the beginning of a project, and briefly at the end. In my seven years at Atomhawk I’ve seen a lot of people in other studios laid off, and a lot of studios go under. So, multitasking roles mean people will always have something to do.

APOLOGIES. I’M SOUNDING A LITTLE DOOM AND GLOOM. Great jobs exists! People will always make cool stuff!

I’m very much a jack of all trades and my job demands a lot of different things: characters / turn arounds / outfit designs / expression sheets / illustration / marketing art / pitch art / but it’s all primarly focused around characters. So. If characters are what you want - look into that! I would say that when it comes to apply for / getting work etc, we always love to see range. If someone isn’t showing me all the process behind their work it’s likely the first thing I’m going to ask for when it comes to an interview. I think if you have shiny work (on a freelance basis) a client would have enough confidence in the end result. But for a production role like mine, I wanna see that stuff.

Rough sketches through to shiny polished work. The whole lot. I want it all. I want to see people’s thinking! I’m rambling.

First of all: be able to draw well. Know your characters. Know your figures. Know your anatomy enough to make it convincing and be able to twist it when you need to. We get a lot of people who apply, who, quite simply (don’t hate me) are not good enough yet. We have people who work in tons of different styles and methods but at the heart of it, they can draw well.

DESIGN. Mother of god. Design. Drawing well is the first step, but you also have to have that creative flair to be able to come up with ideas and be able to sell them convincingly. Drawing the thing is only half the battle. No one wants a beautifully rendered character wearing the most impractical / boring outfit you’ve ever seen (just an example). Thinking logically about design is something I’ve seen underestimated many times over the years. In fact, I’d go as far as to say it’s more important than someones drawing abilities. When it comes down to it, drawing is just the tool to represent the design.

Resources wise: the internet is your oyster! Cast a wide net. Create the kind of work you want to do but also push yourself. I think the results are usually better when artists find an area they’re good in and the push the boundaries of that. Better than trying to be a jack of every single trade possible. Don’t have an awesome portfolio full of character work and then think ‘oh, wait, this is just characters, maybe I should stick a fucking car in there too?’ YOU KNOW? Do what you do - and do it well.

Briefly just a few of the things that helped me most: any massive black videos you can find. Mostly for process. Jason Chan’s videos easily had the most impact for me, both in learning how to improve my process and painting the kind of characters I wanted to. Micheal Hampton and Mike Mattesi (force) for anatomy and energy in poses. Your peers! Your favourite artists in the industry at the moment! The places and people you will learn the most from are always so very individual.

Shit that was long. Good luck!

PS. It’s also my humble opinion that you should never take all of your advice from just one person - just take the pieces that click for you :)

bc im bored and i love these boys

  • lance loves being carried by hunk
    • “hunk i want snacks” “okay lets go—” “hunk…” “do you want me to carry you” “yes”
    • he just sort of leans on hunk and hunk never lets him fall over
    • “sorry i guess i just.. fell for you” “shut up”
    • but literally its the sweetest thing ever hunk is lance’s knight in shining armor and they’re so in love
  • hunk regularly serenades lance with his uke or a guitar and it’s so cute
    • his voice is really smooth and deep and it puts lance to sleep most of the time
    • but he tries to stay awake if only to hear his beautiful boyfriend gently singing a bunch of cute little love songs to him
    • they’re both in love with the juno soundtrack so it’s often kimya dawson or the moldy peaches
    • pidge calls it gross but lbr she thinks it’s the most adorable thing ever
  • everyone says lance is the walking shitpost (which, yes, is valid) but hunk is on a whole other level
    • shiro once says something like “man my shoulder hurts” and hunk just starts reciting a commercial for arthritis verbatim
    • he is a dedicated shitposter
    • pidge and lance can’t stop laughing and keith is just really confused
    • whenever coran makes them run during training all he does is repeat the fitness gram pacer test until the only exercise lance is doing is laughing like an idiot
    • whenever keith tries to say something edgy he and pidge team up and play emo music over the speakers until no one can hear keith
    • “hunk, can you pass me the salt” [hunk grabs the saltshaker and proceeds to empty all of it on his own plate while making direct eye contact with shiro]
  • what this means is that, when he’s with lance, they quite literally are the meme team
    • they can do that scary thing where they say different parts of a sentence in sync and it’s amazing
    • “lov the cronch—” “hate the slorp—” 
    • pidge: “can you two shut the FUCK up”
    • they like to roast people in unison and keith regularly cries himself to sleep when this happens to him
    • keith: angsts about something
    • lance and hunk, in haunting unison: i was born with glass bones and paper skin. every morning i break my arms and every night i—
    • pidge: hey—
    • lance and hunk: perform the entirety of the goblin king song from the hobbit
  • they are so protective of each other it’s disgusting
    • lance literally doesn’t give a mother of fuck what happens to him
    • but if hunk gets hurt he turns into an unstoppable force of nature 
    • literally no galra gets out of there without at least one bullet hole in their skin
    • on the other hand
    • if lance gets injured in the slightest
    • catch hunk in the club blasting a million galra in the fucking face
    • literally there’s nothing left but craters that man is a savage when it comes to protecting his boyfriend
    • they’re so!! in!! love!!
  • hunk has this thing called the lance parable in which whenever anyone gets insecure about themselves he’s like
    • “lance sometimes gets like that too, and you can see that he’s literally the most talented, amazing, beautiful, considerate, iconic, wonderful, ethereal, godly person ever! so even if you feel bad about yourself it doesn’t mean you’re bad”
    • lance has no idea about it until he says it to keith in front of like everyone and he just
    • cries. he’s literally in tears and hugging hunk and its the most tender moment ever and everyone’s happy and ughndsingidfu
