this looks a lot better than i thought it was going to so yeah

@violyntfemme: People are idiots. I had a nurse basically tell me my makeup was to pretty for me to have MS and than when my hands shake, which they do all the time, I should just think positively to make it go away. You don’t have to “look” sick to be sick. I hope you feel better soon, sweetie.

Oh my god, what a horrid thing to say to someone. You’d think that if she was in that profession, she’d have a little more empathy. I’m so sorry you had to deal with that. I’ve had people react similarly regarding my tension headaches; lots of people thought I was just using it as an excuse. Yeah, because I love puking from pain and sleeping for 20 hours a day :/

@elletromil: I hope you’ll feel better soon :(

Thank you! :) I feel much better today but five days with a chest/sinus cold is more than enough, haha.

HG Build Burning Gundam - Flame Display Base

The painting is done. It looks way better than I thought it was going to and it was a heck of a lot easier than I’d imagined.

The glue took the clear orange and red extremely well. I also put a little flat red dry brushing on the flames and thinned some of it to put in the cracks and pits.

The the ground portion I ended up intentionally cracking and and rounding off the edges with a stiff brush. For it I did a base coat of dark grey, then a dry brush layer of neutral grey, medium grey and then the dark grey again.

The tub at the bottom just got a quick coat of black spray paint, I didn’t particularly care how that bit turned out.

I really can’t think of anything else to say, this just turned out way better than I thought. Just compare it to what it looked like before I painted it.

So yeah, go me! Still need to get a brighter led lamp to put in the bottom, I might never do it. Now all that’s left is to find a spot to put in…

Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Opening 2
“With Your Voice As My Map” (その声が地図になる, “Sono Koe ga Chizu ni Naru”) by Hayami Saori

Yeah yeah! Bring on the anisongs!!

Thanks to school and technical issues, I took a while getting to subbing. In fact, many of the songs I want to sub already have their official lyrics released (which is pretty fast as anisongs go). But with a new laptop I had to reinstall my programs, my plugins and codecs (omg the worst), my fonts, and get used to my new resolution (full HD, baby) which makes all my old 720p videos look pixelated. OTL

Anyway, ain’t this song lovely!? It’s so much better than the first opening; the direction is a lot less cliche now, there’s a grand improvement in the lyrics, and look at all those sparkles!! 8DD

I thought the lyrics are from Shirayuki’s perspective when I heard it in the PV, but hearing the full thing convinced me that it’s actually Zen speaking here (which makes sense considering what happens in the Tanbarun arc). Also, I’ve tweaked my translations for the title. The one I used before (”Your Voice Will Become My Map”) is a lot more literal, but while translating this I felt that the above translation sounded… better.

(Also, poor quality thanks to Tumblr’s limit. If anyone wants better quality, feel free to message me. :D)

so just watched episode 1 of shadowhunters

i’m going to ignore the changes they made when i review this episode because it’s to be expected even if some seem really not necessary 

i think kat was good, better than she seemed in the promos so that’s a relief

dom was solid maybe a bit too serious 

izzy was great (esp with alec)

alec has no chill whatsoever and i love him already

valentine seems like a psycho and i loved the way he talked to jocelyn like she’s still his loving wife like yeah okay dude (and he looks less angry than movie valentine so that’s good)

still need more magnus scenes to review harry

best part is simon for me, the part with the meth was funny and not in a forced kind of way and his what the fuck look is perfect which is good since i think he’s gonna have that look 40% of the time

the dialogue left a lot to be desired honestly, i think the writing was average at best but i’m going to give them the benefit of this episode being a first and they had to introduce this whole new world in 40 minutes

which is another problem i think they spread just too much information and it was all over the place like so many new words (for those who haven’t read the books) 

the time jumps really killed the pacing so i hope they’ll deal with those better in future episodes

the cgi is really meh but okay i’m going to give them a break in that area, it’s just that the colors they picked for the portals are so childish and campy damn it why 

i’m going to rate this episode a 6.5 out of 10 but i see some potential and they can make it better, i just hope they did and it’s not some half-assed show (writing is so crucial to any show so it has to get a lot better)
