this is so ugly i dont know why i'm posting it

anonymous asked:

Hi there! I don't know if you'll have anything to say aside from what you told that other person asking about building towns, but. I don't DM, but I have been interested in creating cities based off medieval history for D&D lately. However, I'm kinda at a roadblock when it comes to structuring that info. I tried to find a blank sheet or something but had no luck. How do you (or others) usually arrange information? Also, if I were to come up with something I liked, should I send it here?

Please feel free to send me ideas, your art, etc! I don’t post every idea I get, but I’ve gotten a lot of good ones I never would have thought of. 

I’m pretty unorganized tbh but this is what I do usually: [real vs example versions]

Lockston

Large population, human with some dwarfs.

Strong guard presence.

Typical, but at night everyone hurries home. Everyone thinks their family is cursed to be werewolves, and others will kill them. No one knows everyone else is also a werewolf.

Not close to other towns, no allies. Enemies with the nearby Drow settlement.

Beer n Booty: typical. Run by Ava. Sells endlessly empty mugs.

Sleeping Ugly: Expensive. Run by Burt. Complimentary breakfast, but it’s all weird fancy stuff.

Mixer’s Elixirs: Potions shop run by Mixer. Yes, that is his name. No, you cannot buy anything deadly. He sells perfume but insists on calling it potions.

Luthur. 42. Very hairy. The townsfolk are worried about him, he seems to be acting strange. He’s salivating at the sight of meat, has fleas, and is growing hair on his legs at an alarming rate. He is the first werewolf, slowly transforming into a full wolf. The rest of the village is soon to follow.

Noblesse vs Texts From Last Night

(mostly Muzaka vs texts from last night)

can werewolves and modified humans get drunk/high? probably not, but that won’t stop me

some of the content under the cut is not intended for minors because Muzaka is an awful drunk with no limits that’ll get himself killed by Frankenstein

Long post ahead!

I always laugh when louises/ larries attack harries. I wonder if you actually think the things you write or if you'e trying to manipulate your followers. Or if you need to blame someone so you turn to harries? You have talked about how harries are the worst for days and I’m just ??? 

Because can you give me 100 blogs right now that are harries but spend every day making several post just to talk shit about Louis? People that have more louis then harry content on their blogs ? Cause I can give you those louises. I can seriously give you 100 blogs now. Can you tell me one harry blog with a name etc ( not anon on tumblr cause people pretend to be other people on anon all the time) saying stuff like Johanna deserved to d*e because of Louis? I can give you the louis blog that said Robin deserved  it because of Harry’s fame. 

Can you give me harrie blogs writing about wanting Louis do d*e/ wanting to hurt him? I can give you several louis blog and people that did that about Harry. Not fake anons or anything. Blogs with real names that have been here forever. Do you want me to go and on? Cause I can be here all day. Are some harries mean? Yes. Of course. But you can’t even compare that to what those blogs say about H every day. They call him things like r*pist, p*edofile  every day. Have you ever brought it up on your blog? Do every louises have to take the blame for what those blogs say? They way larries make sure that every harrie is blamed for some mean harries. 

Go outside you’re larrie bubble on tumblr and you will see that the fandom isn’t want you think it is. The fact that I can seriously give you 100 blogs right now that are straight up 98 % hate blogs about Harry and 2 % Louis is fucked up. It’s even more fucked up that I can show you those kind of people on twitter too. Did you know that Zayn fans was the first one out here giving bad score on meteoritic for Harry’s album? Of course the twitter harries had to do the same later. Go back and look and see that more bad reviews exist on Harry’s page then Zayns and go look for the first comment. But nobody uses that to hate on zayn fans do they ? What about those louises that tweeted / sent email to writers that had written good reviews about Harry’s album saying he was a P*dofile etc for carolina / Kiwi. That’s seriously stuff but they had no shame showing that they did that to people. Did you know how much hate Harry got 2 days after his step dad died because Louis had his interview out talking about how much he didn’t want the break. Did you know what horrible stuff people tweeted to him / about him when he was grieving. Let me give you the screenshot of the person that wished for him to be harmed 2 days after his stepdad died.

Do you ignore it and pretend it didn’t happen? Or do you only follow fans that hate Harry so you only see the bad stuff Harries does? I’m seriously wondering? 

Another thing that is funny to me is how only people that love louis, liam, niall and zayn can think that they are the best solo act but when some harries think Harry is the best solo act bc of how amazing he did with a 6 minute rock ballad without promo every day and without discounting it then it’s awful and blogs on here have to make post shitting on that. 

I mean Meghan Trainors All about the bass have more streams and did better on billboard then Rihannas bitch better have my money yet no one would ever bring that up to prove how much Rih failed and how Meghan is better.  I’m just siting here wondering when streams and what they radio played became the measure for how a good song is or how good someone is doing ( cause we all know it’s business). Cause then Charlie Puth and Shawn Mendes are better then Beyonce cause their songs have more streams / are played more on the radio. ( btw, i’m not comparing those people to the 1d boys. I’m just saying that when you used certificates and streams as a measure of who has the best song or a measure of the quality of the songs I just laughed cause that’s so hilarious. Who’s going to tell Beyonce that Shawn Mendes has more streams on Spotify then her and that means his success is bigger then hers. ) 

The fact that people are angry at Harry for having opportunities is also so whack. I must have imagined Niall Horan getting on a festival tour with only one song when billion other artist would have loved that and had actually albums out to promote. It wasn’t high on the chart before he went on every festival so the reason wasn’t bc he had the biggest hit of the year. Then we have Liam that has worked with Ed Sheeran, Pharrell, Charlie Puth, Beyonces dancer etc but of course that’s not something  larries ever would imagine hating Liam for. Why did not a single larrie mention Zayn and his ”unfair” fashion deal.? So many people that are designers would have killed for that and so many people dress better than him etc but no angry post about it. It’s only Harry that get’s that kind of hate  and people taking about his “unfair” opportunities. 

I could go on and on about how 1d fans and people on here are so fake when it comes to the boys. It’s just sad I can’t take you seriously anymore cause you used to be one of my favorites on here.


Here, anon, I’m keeping my word and posting your version. Sorry for the dealy, it had slipped down down down my inbox. I am too tired to reply point by point. I certainly lack your time, energy and dedication, I’ll give you that!

I know that some blogs are out there saying the nastiest things about Harry and it makes me feel sick. That’s the reason why I don’t follow them? I don’t go read their blogs? I stay as far as I can. If they were to bother me, I’d block them. That’s the difference. None of these people obsessively came to my inbox wishing I’d choke or die, none of them were encouraged by their own pears and more influential blogs to contact people with different opinions (not even offensive, because neither me nor any of my mutuals would ever insult the boys, or anyone else, like, you kno, abotu being civil and all). Until the day they do, I can dislike them in my own corner. I dont condone what anyone who’s got a critique to make about Harry’s team and promo has to go through in this crazy atmosphere. I’m on my blog, discussing my OWN experience, and my own experience included nasty harries being unforgivable in their actions. All the boys, all the artists out there have horrible fans in their rows. Until they come to my own space, I’ll let them be, I won’t make post about them, I won’t send them anons, submissions, write call out posts. I am so turned off by all this ugliness aorund and that’s exactly why I do my best to avoid it. You do you, I’m fine where I am. And I thought you had unfollowed me already, this is the second submission you send me. Sorry to see you go and lose your respect, but we’ll both live with it, I fear. I can’t bring myself to asnwer the rest, as it doesn’t personally touch me, like this one point does. I might even agree with a thing or two! Let’s call this quits now, yeah? Yeah.

I workout 3 times a week,eat good,i've also cut ot all sugary,snacks,fizzy drinks,coffee,meat,basically just cut out crap food but i'm not losing any weight! i have muscles already as i worked out alot when i was younger,jsut had a break for acouple of years due to some issues, but the fat is covering it. i dont know what im doing wrong!

Well this is a very complex question there could be various reasons underlying why you are struggling to lose weight.

My theory is that instead of burning fat as fuel your body is scavenging your muscles and this is probably due to your overly restrictive [die]t, which seems to be lacking in proteins (a BIG NO NO when trying to lose weight/fat). Unless you are an overly obese individual or vegetarian I don’t see the need to cut off meat out of your diet since protein are vital elements when trying to lose weight/fat.

First and foremost, as I always say to people when getting these types of questions you have to understand the difference between fat loss and weight loss. Do you want to lose weight OR fat?

People often say they want to lose weight. This is sort of a moronic statement, because “weight” can be a few different things. For example, water, glycogen, muscle or fat. Hell, you can cut off a leg and you’ll lose “weight” just fine. In reality however, what most of us want to lose is fat, NOT muscle.

  • What’s the difference between weight loss & fat loss? People seem to use both terms interchangeably. After reading hopefully you’ll understand the difference between weight loss & fat loss, but also which one you should aim for and how. Let’s start by defining weight loss & fat loss so you know what I mean here. If you want to lose weight, it’s most likely because you carry too much fat. There are people who must lose weight, like athletes before a competition, but most want fat loss. So stop weighting yourself. 

Sure, you might want your body to just burn body fat and not muscle, but your body doesn’t really give a crap about what you want. It just knows that in order for it to survive and function under the current conditions, it will need to pull stored energy from somewhere. And that can mean fat, muscle or a combination of both. 

Now, despite some of the crazy things you may have heard before about how to lose fat, the truth is that there is just one major requirement… a caloric deficit; a caloric deficit is what happens when you consume less calories than your body needs to burn for energy performing all of the tasks it needs to perform over the course of the day (move, breathe, pump blood, digest food, etc.). When that caloric deficit is present, your body is forced to find some alternative source of energy on your body to burn instead. Ideally, this would ONLY be your ugly stored body fat. However, it can also be your pretty lean muscle tissue. Hence, see the importance of having proteins as a part of your diet.

LOSING FAT WITHOUT LOSING MUSCLE!

Now, you’re probably wondering how to lose body fat without losing valuable muscle. Here are a few tips:

  1. Eat Enough Protein
    I can’t stress this enough! Protein and BCAAs are life! Fat is emergency storage for your body, so when you get on low calorie diets your body will burn muscle first. The first and best way of preventing this is by getting a sufficient daily protein intake; the single most important dietary requirement for maintaining muscle. It’s not meal timing, or supplements, or the exact size of your caloric deficit, or the quality of the foods you eat (more on that nonsense later), or anything else

    Nutritionally speaking, losing fat without losing muscle is all about eating enough protein every day. Even in the absence of a proper weight training routine, more of the weight you lose will be body fat rather than muscle mass just as a result of an increased protein intake. So, the first step of any muscle-preserving diet is always getting your ideal amount of protein for the day. What is “ideal?” Well, the good old “1-gram of protein per pound of body weight” recommendation still remains a perfectly fine starting point for most people with this goal in mind. Since your focus is on fat loss I would recommend consuming foods that are low in calories and high in protein such as egg whites, Greek yogurt, lean meats such as chicken breast, tuna, etc.

  2. Get Pre & Post Workout Nutrition Right…
    Losing weight is more than just exercising regularly or practically starving yourself. It’s important to note what you are eating before, during, and after your workout in order to get the maximum benefit from your efforts. The entire concept of pre and post workout nutrition is practically built around improving every aspect of training and recovery. For your body to be able to train properly, it needs to be fuel properly. As I always say your body is like a car it you fuel it with junk it will perform like junk. If your body doesn’t receive the appropriate nutrients it might not recover from your workouts.

  3. Don’t Reduce Calories By TOO Much and Avoid Overly restrictive [die]ts 

 As you hopefully understand by now, in order to lose any amount of body fat, you need to create a caloric deficit. And that means you’re going to need to reduce your calorie intake below maintenance level so stored body fat can be burned for energy instead. However, you should NEVER starve yourself or skip meal, never. I will not go beyond all the science behind the why since it would be too long, below I inserted an extract of a post from my blog I wrote about 2 yrs. go which sums up and explains very well why.

Personally, I disagree with the whole counting, cutting, reducing your calories intake (by TOO much) concept, so I always suggest to people to eat BETTER instead of less. Food is fuel - You won’t starve your car of fuel and expect it to run efficiently, would you? Successful weight/fat loss is not about starving, it’s about fuelling your body with the healthy, low calorie food it needs to help you lose weight

Not eating at all or eating too little actually slows down the metabolism, slow metabolism = NO weight loss! The body thinks it’s starving, so it will go on the “survival” mode which means it will literally slow down its calorie-burning capacity in order to “survive”.  In other words, by not eating at all or drastically reducing your calories intake the body will senses that it is in “trouble”, it will try to conserve the few amount of energy it has left as much as possible, which will result in a slower metabolism! 

Remember fat is emergency storage for your body. Your body will burn muscle first if you get on low calorie diets, so the body is going to use muscles as fuel.

Moral of the story, you don’t have to eat less - you just have to eat BETTER!! In the above picture you can clearly see the sticking difference between 1575 calories of “junk” foods and healthy foods.

That being said, as mentioned in my previous reply I advocate for delicious food. Eating food for wellness should never sacrifice flavour-EVERI do not believe in [die]ting, but in lifestyle changes. In other words,I do not believe in food restriction; instead of restricting the foods you love from your nutrition you should maybe think about replacing them with healthy alternatives.  Eating more natural, whole, unprocessed raw vegan food is a gentle way of living in alignment with Mother Earth. Raw food is full of life, enzymes, minerals, vitamins, sun energy and love :) and we could all use more of those!! Raw food goes beyond boring salads! You can make garden tahini rolls, raw avocado soups, amazing raw pastas, and yummy cacao coconut desserts!

Having the willpower to stick to a structured nutritional plan is generally a plus, but pushing it too far can do you more harm than good. Psychologically, the fact that certain foods are prohibited from your diet can make you crave them even more! This is a big reason for “cheating” on a diet, and eventually giving up. Following an overly restrictive diet isn’t only difficult, but it’s often an unsuccessful approach to improving one’s health. What’s worse – you end up negatively affecting your overall quality of life by ignoring the health benefits of pleasure, relaxation, and social interaction. No bueno! You will do far better on a less restrictive, flexible approach that is tailored to your individual needs.

In short, let’s recapitulate these two main points here:

  • Eat More, Not Less
    Include some of your favorite nutrient-rich foods such as succulent grapes, fresh kiwi, or vitamin-packed bananas throughout the day for a healthy snack. They will provide the energy you need, and also keep you full until your next meal.

  • Switch To Lighter Version Of Your Favorite Foods
    Denying yourself your favorite foods repeatedly can be psychologically harmful to your overall outlook of achieving optimal health. No one wants to go without their favorite food. So why not swap your favorite foods to a low-cal version of the ones you crave the most? Try to incorporate low-fat ice cream for dessert or frozen yogurt, reduced-fat cheese on your homemade pizza. This may not sound like much, but over time, it will make a difference.

    Increase your fiber intake while cutting back on fat calories. You can easily add fiber to your pizza pie by mixing-in some green and red bell peppers to your toppings. Not only is this a healthy choice, it will allow you to feel fuller longer. 

Now that being said, as well you shouldn’t solely rely on the weight scale I always recommend taking pictures when following your fat loss progress. The weight scale can be misleading, pictures tend to be a bit more accurate.  The number on the scale could mean different things; your weight is constantly fluctuating during the day. This is a very interesting article that I would recommend you to read: What the Number on the Scale Really Means: A Primer on Weight Fluctuations.

In regards to proteins, if you do not want to incorporate meat into your diet there are several other sources where you can get your protein:

Finally, this post is based on what I am assuming I could be wrong, but if you’ve cut out proteins completely out of your diet it is possibly the reason why you are struggling to see results. Finishing on an encouraging note ENJOY life!! Live, your fitness journey is not meant to be miserable. While you’re on your fitness journey, don’t forget to check you’re still really living! Never fear to eat, what you consume should NEVER become an obsession—yes taking care of yourself and being cautious of the quality of the food you eat is important, but it should never become an obsession. Food is our friend, and when we enjoy how food is meant to be enjoyed—whole, pure and unadulterated—food is our best friend!

Hopefully this was helpful! BTW as I mentioned previously in one of my post I apologize for the late reply — I’ve been extremely busy during the past few week because of school.


Take care xoxo

Hello!^^ So, I really love your art! That's why I wanted to ask if you have any advice...? I always wanted to draw my OTP in several situations and that would be so good to do, but I'm really bad at drawing... do you have any advices? where to draw? things to do to get better..? Or there is really no way...? Thank you a lot ^^ and your draws of Howl are really good!

SOMEONE ASK ME FOR ADVICE !!!! **deep breathes**

u.u sorry, but it makes me really glad, even if… I’m probably not the best person to give drawing advices ! TwT But, let’s giving a try…

First, thanks for your compliment ^^ Then… I’m not sure of what you exactly want, so, I’ll perhaps repeat things that you’ll already seen, but, I can’t tell anything else T.T

I always wanted to draw my OTP in several situations and that would be so good to do, but I’m really bad at drawing… do you have any advices?

It’s right that being able to draw his OTP is really wonderful, but it’s always difficult ^^ I can’t draw all the things I want, all the situations I imagine, all the scene I read in fics, ect… 

I think one of the key is to really picture precisely what you want in your head before drawing anything. Then, don’t try to draw each details immediatly… first, try the “guy wire” (I’m sorry, it’s a translation from a french expression), so, that :

It’s really nice to see the pose, the heigt differences, ect… Don’t try something too complex first !! Don’t hesitate to do a lot of sketches like that, it’s nice because you don’t have to do a lot of details, so, it’s more painful to redo it ! ;) If you can each character in different colors, do it !

Once you have your position, add volumes :

then details :

And ink !

((Sorry, it’s not really pretty, it was quickly done for the explanation ! >.<)) The colorization is an other things, and it’s also painful, but try first to have a lineart you like ^^

You’ve probably already seen that, but it’s really useful : it’s a baseline I always use to draw, especially for complex positions !! And it’s not always so clean ! x) my sketches are more often like :

where to draw?

Hm ? I assume you mean on whath medium, paper or tablet… If it’s that, I can only tell you to choose what you’re the most comfortable with, and with which one you’re the most satisfied by your drawings ^^ 

I tend to find digital art more easy, because you can create as many layers as you want if (like me) you’re scary of destroy a good sketch, make mistake, etc… 

the problem with digital art is that if you don’t have tablet, it’s very hard, and you have to learn the drawing gesture on tablet, which can be a little hard at the begining… see, the first drawings I posted were numerised traditionnal drawings that I colorized on computer… after getting the gesture, I began to draw directly on computer ^^ 

I tend to advise you to exercise you first on paper, because it has the advantage to be really easy to do anywhere, and you can draw easily in a lot of situation ! and more you draw, more you improve ! ^.^ it’s a base I think…

But I also advise you to try both ! you’ll find what fit you better ! ;)

And if you meant : “in which position, or in which place”, know that I always draw in the lounge, in not good conditions, sitting in a messy way ! xD

things to do to get better..?

draw. draw, draw draw draw, and draw again ! ^^ don’t hesitate to copy work of artist you like (but if you publish those drawings, don’t forget to credite the original artist ;) ) , look at how they draw positions, eyes, hair, hands… 

USE ART REFERENCES !! they are gold !! with tutorials, and all things you can find !

here’s a bunch of good references :

((sorry for the links, but I’m too lazy to name all of those references ^^”’)) They are just random drawing references I myself use ^^ 

and don’t hesitate to type «drawing reference [the thing you want to draw]” in google ;)

Or there is really no way…? 

There are always ways to improve !! Keep doing what you like, draw what you really want to draw, not only things to improve, listen to the opinion of your friends and family, but also keep in mind what you love, even if it’s not the same thing that other people love. It’s what will make your own art style, your signature ;)

Don’t focuses on searching your own art style first, it will come gradually by drawing and  looking at what other people do.

I know it’s really hard, I really often hate what I do, I think that I have no drawing style, and find most of my drawings ugly, but don’t give up ! when you feel down and hate your drawings, turn unto people you know who likes what you do, who can tell you what it’s nice in your art, take a break, go eating something, watching video you love, and then come back to your art ;)

Finally, put all your heart on what you draw, and things will come. Don’t force yourself on something you don’t like, you don’t do anything good ^^ 

hhmmm, okay, I’m really not the good person to give advice ! u.u’ But I hope it will help, and sorry for the amount of mistakes I surely did in this reply, english is not my native language, and I’m too lazy to check all this post in google translation to fix the mistakes, so, I hope it’s understandable ! u.u”

And thanks again ! ;) I was really inspired by this story, so, it was more easy and pleasant for me… even if I struggled ! xD

now, I’m beyond pissed off.

One of my mutuals on twitter sent me this screenshot of what hansol said to us fans on his latest post. If y'all haven’t seen, it’s about Kidoh (a performance, I think). If you guys don’t know about why Kidoh did,
TW: Rape;
He was featured in one of Iron’s songs from his latest album and in the song they’re talking about rape. Him, Iron and Supreme Boi wrote the lyrics to the song. Basically a guy raping a girl and how much pleasure it was for both of them and just some other fucked up stuff. He basically promoted rape. Of course, that is beyond disgusting and wrong of someone to do. He did apologize, but an apologize won’t do it.

So as you guys know, Hansol and Kidoh are friends. Kidoh is a former member from toppdogg so it’s obvious. This pure boy fucking apologized for the picture he posted, and showing that he supports Kidoh. Yes, what Kidoh did was fucked up. It’s hansols choice if he wants to be friends with Kidoh or not even after the shit he’s done. IT’S HIS CHOICE. Do y'all honestly think that sending Hansol shit will make this even better? No, obviously not. Hansol has been doing nothing but good for us and we can’t even let that precious boy fucking live without getting any hate because of the stuff he does.

HANSOL DID NOT DO ANYTHING WRONG. IT WAS KIDOH. HANSOL CAN SUPPORT KIDOH BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL FRIENDS, AND WE NEED TO SUPPORT HIM EVEN THO HE’S FRIENDS WITH SOMEONE THAT HAS DONE A BIG ASS SHITTY MISTAKE. IT’S HIS CHOICE, IT’S HIS LIFE. I GET IT, Y'ALL WANT HANSOL TO SEE THAT WHAT KIDOH DID WAS FUCKED UP BUT SENDING HIM HATE IS JUST DUMB AS FUCK. DO YALL HONESTLY THINK THAT IT WILL SOLVE EVERYTHING. STOP MAKING THIS BOY PUT SO MUCH BLAME ON HIMSELF JUST BECAUSE OF THE SHIT HIS FRIEND HAS DONE. HE DID NOT DO ANYTHING WRONG. WE ALL SHOULD RESPECT THAT THEY ARE FRIENDS EVEN ADTER THE UGLY SHIT KIDOH HAS DONE EVEN THO MAYBE YOU DONT LIKE KIDOH. I DONT CARE WE STILL NEED TO FUCKING SHOW THAT WE CARE ABOUT HANSOL AND HIS CHOICES AND WHOEVER HES FRIENDS WITH. ITS HIS LIFE, HIS CHOICES, LET HIM LIVE FOR FUCK SAKES. STOP BLAMING ON HIM FOR EVERY SHIT HE DOES. HE HAS APOLOGIZED MULTIPLE TIMES, WHICH HE WAS NEVER FUCKING SUPPOSED TO DO.

I honestly can’t even believe fans sometimes. It’s Hansols choices, so if he wants to be friends with Kidoh or not, he can. Let that boy live for a goddamn second. If you’re gonna hate, go hate on Iron, Supreme Boi or Kidoh. NOT HANSOL.

wizards-7  asked:

Hello meta, as you know I'm not american, and I'm really puzzled about one thing - why does it matter how long you wear the same item of clothing? I always see the jokes like "lol is this the same tshirt you were wearing yesterday" and I'm like... what? Yes it is probably, and? Whats the deal with that, do americans produce sweat in gallons or do they roll in dirt in it every day or do they literally have so much clothes its bad if they dont put all of them eventually?? Im really confused!

Well, I have no idea if it is an American thing or not. I know in more hot climates (and the USA midwest, south, and southwest things can get pretty roasty) people really do sweat a lot and should change clothes regularly. And I do know that if you’re an adolescent, you might be prone to having a weird smell that not everybody is comfortable with (it’s just hormones, it’ll be ok and isn’t shameful) that such a climate might make more noticeable.

In certain places clothing is a status symbol. People wear lots of different clothing to prove they aren’t poor (ugh), or that they have style or fashion, or just otherwise see it as a point of culture to have a new outfit every day. Consumer goods keeps up with this demand by providing cheap (and to an extent, intended-to-be-disposable) clothing produced overseas for pennies on the dollar.

In reality though, a lot of these posts I think are insecurities about these topics. Most people wear jeans for at least 3 days before washing them. Most people wear deodorant and get away with wearing shirts at least twice before washing them just not in a row. The only things that should be washed 1:1 to days are underwear and socks, and most women (especially of larger bra sizes) don’t even wash their bras until they have been worn 3 or more times because too much washing wears them out, and they can be expensive so owning more than 3 pairs can be a problem for many people.

So these posts and jokes are probably more about anxieties, “do I smell? do people hate me?” “am I unfashionable or ugly?” “am i dirty?” “Do I look poor or like I can’t afford clothes?” “lol I look so bad” that are re-affirmed by cultures of negativity. Especially surrounding womens’ appearances and especially among youth– kids in school always MUST see each other almost every day, end up noticing anything the least bit “abnormal,” or any signs of poverty, or unkempt habits.

I wouldn’t take them too seriously as a sign of culture or international difference, but more as messages from people who feel that unless they meticulously manage their appearance and clothing they’re not fit to be in public. Sentiments that have their own issues related.

I’ve been in the 100 fandom for quite some time now and I honestly gotta say that you guys are probably one of the best fandoms I’ve been in, so give yourselves a pat on the back! And I think that I’d ought to make some more friends on here! So here I am, creating this little network! I seem to say this every time I make a banner or something: please excuse the ugliness!

RULES

  • Must be following me & bellamyblakesource (although bbsource is optional)
  • Reblog this post please, likes are only for bookmarks.
  • There’s no survey, but you must make a post talking about why you would like to join and tag it as #skaikrunetwork! I know, effort right? You don’t have to write much! Only a couple of sentences! (I’ll be stalking your blogs so don’t mind me), and in the meantime you can become my friend in my askbox.
  • Must reach 30 notes or we’ll act like this has never happen
  • Optional: Tag #skaikrunetwork for updates!

I'M LOOKING FOR:

  • Someone that loves the 100 as much as I do!
  • Someone with a clear tagging system and an organized blog
  • You can be A multifandom blog but you have to at least post some of the 100. 
  • You do not have to create gifs or edits or write fanfictions!

WHAT I'LL PROVIDE:

  • A private chat where you can talk about the 100, exchange advice and feedback for our creations/ideas/theories. And it’ll just be a nice place to get away from the stress of life. 
  • New people! There’s no need for you to follow everyone who is accepted, but it would be nice if you could at least check out their blogs!
  • A network tag for you to post all your edits/gifs/etc so other members can reblog and share your things with everyone!

The date I shall close applications will depend on how many notes this post gets! I’ll choose my members shortly after!
I’m aiming for about 20 members, but that will depend on the amount of notes this post gets. 
If accepted, make sure to let everyone know that you’re now a Skaikru member, but dont start getting into fights with any Grounders - keep the truce.
