this made me laugh but also made me cry

Did you ever have a genuine psychic/medium experience?

Although many readings can be attributed to cold readings or sheer coincidence sometimes it’s uncanny how accurate psychics/mediums can be. Here’s a collection of supposedly genuine experiences from threads. If you have an experience feel free to tag me @sixpenceee!

I never believe in palm /card readings. I don’t actually believe in it nowadays. BUT when I was in 9th grade, my friend took me with her to a fortune teller so she can have her future read. Surprisingly she mentioned about her love dilemma, a blonde guy and dark haired guy. She was completely convinced about her reading powers while I was meh… We’re teenagers, it’s natural we’ll find ourselves in situations like this. And then she predicted the scores she’ll get at the exams when you finish high school (in our country there are some mandatory subjects for the exams, thus multiple numbers) she guessed that right. If I think really hard about probabilities and stuff I can find a logic explanation to that as well.

About 5 years ago I saw a psychic that a family friend had told me was the real deal. I went in skeptical and came out a believer.

She used tarot cards and knew things that could have been lucky guesses, like that I had just bought a house and was renovating it, but she also knew specific things that no one else could have known.

The most amazing part of the whole thing was that she knew that I had some complications with my hormones and had a surgery in the past that would make getting pregnant very difficult, but she told me Despite all this, I would have a baby later in life. Toward the end of the reading she hands me the tarot cards and tells me to shuffle them. Then tells me to ask three questions in my mind one at a time. I decided to really test her authenticity so the first question I decided to ask was am I going to have children, and halfway through laying the five cards down, she stops and looks at me and scolds me saying “I already told you that you were going to have one child!” hah this is when I knew.

This was before I was born. My mom had a neighbor who was a grandpa who could see the future. He told my mom that my sister would be really sick when she became a preteen and not to worry because she’d be okay. When my sister was a preteen she was diagnosed with cancer and after a year and a half she was perfectly fine. My mom was pregnant with me when she met him again and he told her that I would be a c-section baby. My mom already knew this and said she had scheduled the c-section already since I was breach but he was adamant that she would have me on a certain day and that the c-section wouldn’t go on the planned day. I was born on the exact day he predicted.

Nothing too crazy but the fact that he knew that my sister would be sick and would be okay is crazy to me. He also didn’t want any money and approached my mom and asked if he could do a reading for her.

Hi! Quick question, how can you single handedly be one of the funniest blogs while be one of the kindest muns on this website, combined with an amazing art style? Are we all secretly living in an anime? Are you the protagonist? When are you going to unlock your final form? Roughly how far away are we from the inevitable "beach party" arc?

thank you so much Q-Q 

Spiderman homecoming was hands down the greatest spiderman movie there’s been, Tom blew Toby and Andrew out the water.
He made me laugh, cry and root for Peter Parker throughout the entire movie, this Peter was brave, insanely smart, powerful but most importantly he was also scared.
I’m really glad the movie dealt with how he’s only 15, still a kid, in these dangerous and near death experiences, of course he’s scared. A certain scene where Peter is trapped under rubble made me cry, Tom was incredible.
I honestly just want to protect Peter Parker??¿?
I’m also here for Tony the dad, 100%

Mark Blackthorn - Blackthorn siblings, #4

As fate would have it, after Helen comes Mark. Yay, Mark! ❤🌿

He and Kit were the characters which made me laugh the most in The Dark Artifices…and he was also one of the few characters which made me cry very, very hard in the whole Shadowhunter series. 😭 I love him. 😉 I played around with his hairstyle a bit. Hopefully he looks like Mark.

Also, only Dru, Ty and Livvy left! 😘 I wonder whose name I’ll be drawing next from this little box…hm.

And she was different after that, in a way that made the rest of you proud.

I don’t really know how to say what this podcast has meant to me for the past half year. This point in my life is filled up with anxiety, and I desperately needed something to make me laugh, and to make me feel good about the world, and to give me courage. The Adventure Zone did that. It also accompanied me on aimless walks through the city, and long subway rides, and grocery shopping trips, and evenings alone in my kitchen. It got me writing stories again when nothing else could.

Lucretia especially–her fear and her love, her loneliness and her desperation and her resolve–brought me so much joy. Thank you, Mcelroy family, and Griffin especially. I made it this far. I made it.

This is my ~3yo bully mix, Lil Wiggle Butt the Second, but she answers to Lily.

I adopted her in September ‘15 and since then, she ate 2 couches, a bunch of my art supplies and drawings, couple of dog beds (and part of my mattress) and peed on every single surface in my old appartment. She has also made me laugh every single day, let me hold her tight when I have anxiety attacks, and made me cry with her soft and tender attention. Her infaillible love for new adventures, be it at the end of the street or just out of a room, has put a pep in my step since the day I got her. Now, we have to live with bsl, but it doesn’t matter because this is my heart dog, and she gets me as much as I get her.

My Jared photo op story!
This was my first ever convention. I am so so pleased with everything. Thank you Jared so much for this experience.
——–
I was waiting in line, so super anxious and tearing up. It was like everything was hitting me at once. I was seeing Jared posing for all these cute pictures with fans and I was just so excited. I was about to meet my biggest inspiration and hope. I continued to repeat what I was going to say in my head to make sure I made this time worth while, because I was really scared it was going to be super rushed (but it actually wasn’t!). I’m also pretty sure Jared was looking at me through the line, probably because I looked like a wreck and wanted to make sure I was okay 😂. I was almost next and the staff took my ticket. She said “don’t cry yet! It’ll be great, you can cry after” so that made me laugh and feel a bit better. The girl in front of me got her picture taken and I was finally able to go up to him. I said hi and he goes “hi how are you!” He then realized me tearing up so he bent down gave me a hug and I was able to whisper in his ear. (Well I was more like screaming so he could hear me cause they had music playing so loud!). But I got to tell him some personal things, how much he has inspired me, and how I couldn’t do it without him. He immediately turns to me, face light up, gives me a high five, grabs my hand and says “wow! I’m so proud of you. So fucking proud.” I said thank you and started crying again. He gave me another really tight hug, looked at me with the most sincere eyes and said, “I know that’s not easy, I know. But that is so fucking awesome. I am so proud.” He would not let go of me, and we still haven’t even taken the picture yet! But he waited to make sure I was okay before rushing anything. I told him thank you and how much he has inspired me, he had the kindest smile the whole time and just kept repeating how proud he was. I handed him the flower crown and asked if he would wear it. He said of course and put it on. He looked at me for a little bit, raised his eyebrows and said, “look good?” And OH MY GOD HE LOOKED AMAZING. at this point I was finally able to stop the tears, and I had the biggest smile. He noticed, smiled back and asked what I would like for the pose. I asked if he could hug me from behind. He smiles, nods, and says, “of course!” He pulled me in closer and wrapped his arms around me. I smiled so big. I was so happy. After the picture was taken he gave me another tight hug, continued to say how proud he was, gave me another high five and held my hand to make sure I was okay. And he still had the flower crown on! I told him how thankful I was and also how proud I am of him. He gave me a very sincere smile. One of the staff members came and took the flower crown off his head, cause it was looking like he wasn’t going to! 😂 and she handed it back to me. As he gave me another hug goodbye, another staff member held my hand. As he let go and I walked off, she continued to talk with me and hold my hand. She said “I know it’s hard to let go of Jared’s hand and not have another hand to hold.” I told her how thankful I was and continued to tear up again. She told me the picture looks so cute and walked me out of the room to make sure I was okay and found my friend. As soon as I walked out I stopped and broke down. My friend ran to me and gave me a tight hug. I was able to tell her a little bit of what happened. A sweet couple behind me came over to me and told me how cute of picture it was and how Jared was smiling. That made me so happy! Another girl waiting in line saw me crying and said, “are you okay? It’s good, girl! You did it! You did it!” Everyone was so nice. It was an experience I will forever cherish and be thankful for, all because of Jared Padalecki.

I’ve been practicing portraits a lot in the past few months. Generally, I try to understand the structure of the face and the light by observing the reference and trying to paint what I see. That’s how we learn how to draw. Since I love painting characters, I try modeling their faces as I imagine them to be, not getting to attached to the features. The reference is useful to give me the right proportions and to make me understand how light works in the skin.

But lately I’ve been feeling quite worried by the fact I might get addicted to references. It’s not wrong, as many artist and teacher says, to use reference to learn and do research. But I need to focus on my imagination now. Draw things entirely from imagination has always been a struggle to me.

So, I’m starting to develop a process to improve that. Not only portraits, but other things too. Before going to bed, I made a study of this reference. Then I went to sleep, woke up today, looked at the reference for about one minute and then I tried to paint again, but this time only from memory.

It was so interesting! Not only has made me studied focusing on remember every brush stroke I made, but also made me see what I need to improve. From memory, the proportion is quite off, his hand is smaller, the overall picture is darker. I believe that if I haven’t spent so much time practicing with reference, I wouldn’t be able to come up with any results from memory, so now, despite of all mistakes, I understand how important it was to practice from references before. It’s also very fun to paint the same thing from memory and see the differences (I have to laugh, so I won’t cry xD)

What inspired me to do this was this stream from a cool artist named Proko: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOuIgevbHs8 If you want to improve your drawings from imagination, he has great tips and exercises.

Berlin in bullet points bc that’s all I’m capable of rn

- first thing’s first: I’ll never love another man as much as I love harry styles

- Muna was fucking GOOD. really fucking good and they have such a positive energy and they were very grateful and very cute

- from the moment they stopped all I could think was ‘oh god harry’s out there somewhere’ and then the pink curtain came and then I was like ‘wtf that bitch is probably standing right there’ and then the spotlight came and I was 'OMG THAT BITCH IS ACTUALLY STANDING THERE’ and then it was like that for at least four more songs

- I was crying by the second song. esny has been one of my favourites from the start and the fact that he was actually there singing was surreal and then two ghosts started and I was like ok bye and started crying

- he accidentally dropped his mic inbetween two songs and then was like 'woops’ and everybody was done for

- he sang/counted up to like 20 or something in german just to show he could and I was too endeared

- I think the rainbow flag he waved during only angel was one of his own bc the flag he took from the audience was a germany one and then he went to take the rainbow one from sarah’s platform and he waved them together which was a bit weird for me but he waved a rainbow flag so I’m good

- nearing the end of woman someone threw some duck thing on the stage and he used it to do the duck noise at the end of the song and then afterwards he was like 'who is this from??’ and then blew it again and said 'WOMAN’ and it was very cute

- he went to dance with mitch during woman which was very cute as well

- mmith live is the closest I’ve ever been and will ever be to a religious experience. it’s been one of my faves from the start and hearing it live literally rendered me speechless and it was everything I could have asked for

- jalboyh was so good??? it also made me cry but I think a big part of that was bc it was just after mmith which Fucked Me Up

- everyone kept singing the oooooh’s at the of jalboyh for so long that at one point adam was like standing there w his arms crossed like 'ok then’ and it was adorable

- the chain was SO FUCKING GOOD

- clare was clapping her hands in a cute way during and it made him laugh

- during the chain at one point he was like 'if you haven’t sang until now that’s completely fine, if you haven’t danced until now that’s completely fine etc’ but you knew that bitch was judging tf out of everybody who wouldn’t have danced yet

- his version of stockholm syndrome owns my heart

- he got a lot of flower crowns thrown at him and he tried putting one on his head but it immediately fell off but he tried I guess

- kiwi goes so fucking hard it was incredible

- when he was waving his goodbyes he bumped into mitch and patted him on the bum, thanks for doing me a solid styles

- he left the stage and was almost at the bottom of the stairs but then he returned and waved some more

- I like that after he’s left the stage the band keeps playing and the final applause is just for them

- I think that was everything for now and I just want to say this whole experience was fucking incredible and I’ll never forget it and I am gonna miss that guy so fucking much wth

“this fucker is like a older brother to me. but I’m bigger so I pick on him like he’s younger” - kian about jc

“You just had to make everyone upset, didn’t ye!”

“A—ah!”

Came back to a lot of super sad reactions to my comic, heheh…. Success! and there’s plenty more where that came from …I mean— Boy, I shouldn’t have made such an upsetting storyboard~! *sweats*

I loved reading what people have had to say about it! I have some more ideas that I wanna board out eventually!

I promise happier things in the near future, my friends!!!

Mark has officially joined the floor party

I’m watching the video I believe you are referring to right now.

I actually had to stop watching the video because I was laughing too loud at Mark being a dork on the floor with his dog.

Guess I’m updating as I watch now…

The hair. FIX THE HAIR.

I feel like we’re his therapist, and the floor is the couch. Chica is also present for moral support.

Mark, Nate, and Jack should start a band. Jack’s video of setting up the drum kit seriously almost made me cry with happiness, and I needed that happy video desperately.

The siren almost made me fall of my bed. And he never explains it!

Finally yes, Mark is the KING of floor party, and Chica is best floor party mascot. We’re all living on the floor in anticipation of what Mark has in store (that rhymed XD).

HE SAID IT’S AT A CASTLE. MY INNER PRINCESS/GOTHIC LIT. NERD IS FANGIRLING SO HARD RIGHT NOW.

Anyway, hope you guys are pumped. I didn’t even really miss videos last week because I’ve been so busy, but I’m still glad Mark is back. I’m super excited for the surprise myself! Buckle up, cutie pies. If this is even bigger that ADWM, we’re all going to explode!
