//Here are some color pallet choices for my Corrupt Lulu! I honestly can’t decide which color scheme I like best, so please comment which one is your favorite! It would really help me out with the decision 😅
Autism is a natural variation of human neurology which is categorized as a developmental disability. About 1% of the worlds population is autistic. Autism is a lifelong condition meaning that autistic people are born autistic and that they will die autistic. You cannot “catch autism” or “become autistic” like you can risk becoming mentally or physically ill - neither vaccines or heavy metals or gluten will make you autistic if you aren’t born with it. You also can’t cure autism or recover from it - but all autistic people can live fulfilling, happy lives with the right accommodations so an autism diagnosis isn’t the death sentence that many people make it out to be. Autism isn’t a diagnosis which can be clearly separated from who you are and how you see the world - it affects every aspect about of how you think about, experience and interact with the world around you. There are many different aspects of being autistic which makes it hard to summarize the condition, but I’ll do my best to introduce you to some of the common autistic traits and experiences in this post.
Sensory processing. Autistic people’s sensory processing is different from most people’s sensory processing. This means that autistic people may be over- or undersensitive to different sensory input. This means that we may have trouble with sounds, touches, smells, tastes, etc that most people can easily tolerate or block out or that we may seek out loud music, blinking lights, bright colors, spicy food, strong smells and activities which provide physical activity and deep pressure. Many autistic people lack the filter that most people have which makes them able to block out background sounds, meaning that the ticking of a clock, the buzzing from a lamp or two people having a conversation nearby might make us unable to focus on what we’re supposed to be focusing on. This means that many autistic people will have trouble focusing in situations with lots of sensory input, for example situations where many people are gathered together, and that we are more easily overwhelmed and stressed out by different sensory input than allistic (non-autistc) people.
Stimming. Stimming is short for self-stimulatory behavior, meaning a behavior which is meant to stimulate one of your senses. Some common stims are rocking back and forth, bouncing your legs or feet, hand flapping, hand wringing and repeating words and sentences, but a stim can be any kind of repeated movement or action which stimulates one of your senses. Stimming can thus be many different things - you can stim by smelling, touching, watching, moving, tasting and listening. The reason why autistic people stim is tied up in the fact that autistic people’s sensory processing tend to be atypical - when there’s a lot of overwhelming, stressing sensory input, providing your own repeated sensory input by listening to a song on repeat or rocking back or forth or smelling something you like the smell of may help you focus and calm down. Autistic people also stim to express emotions - it’s a natural part of our body language just like smiling or frowning is a natural part of most people’s body language. We may jump up and down and flap our hands when excited where most people would simply smile, or we may rock back and forth and press our hands against our faces where other people would cry. That being said, an autistic person doesn’t need a certain, deep reason for stimming - we often do it simply because it’s fun and because it feels good.
Shutdowns and meltdowns. Shutdowns and meltdowns are both responses to extreme distress - they’re often caused by unpleasant, overwhelming sensory input that the autistic person in question is unable to escape, but they can also be caused by strong negative emotions. A meltdown is an outward reaction to said distress where a shutdown is an inwards reaction. An autistic person having a meltdown is a person who has reached a point where they are no longer in control of their own body - they’re experiencing an flight or fight response, so to say. An autistic person may scream, lash out, cry, smash things and run away during a meltdown. Shutdowns are another possible response to a similar situation - during those, the autistic person may become unresponsive, locked in place, unable to talk, etc. You should never get mad at autistic people or hold them responsible for having meltdowns and shutdowns - they’ve reached a place where they’re so distressed that they’re losing control of themselves and instead of distressing them further, you should help them escape or resolve what’s causing the distress - after you have given them plenty of time to calm down and recover, that is.
Trouble with non-verbal communication such as body language, facial expressions and tone of voice. Autism is a disability which affects communication and the ability to socialize, meaning that autistic people may have trouble reading, using and comprehending body language, facial expressions and tone of voice just like they may have trouble learning, conforming to and applying social rules. We may not be able to take a hint that someone’s not interested in talking to us just like we may not notice when someone’s interested in us romantically or sexually. We have trouble noticing when other people are bored or tired or sad or angry and we might thus often come across as uncaring or annoying in social situations. Our trouble with reading other people and seeing the nuance in their body language, facial expressions and tone of voice also means that many autistic people have trouble grasping sarcasm, irony and metaphors.
Trouble with words and speech. Most autistic people have some degree of trouble with expressing their thoughts and opinions through spoken words.This is because most of us don’t naturally think in words - we may experience, think about and process the world around us in pictures or sensory experiences and we may thus have trouble transforming those input and experiences into words. We may also have trouble with the process of speaking, not because there’s something physically wrong with us but because we can have trouble with making our throats and mouths pronounce the words or because we may have trouble with going from thinking a word to succeeding with the process of actually saying it out loud. It’s common for autistic people to have periods where they aren’t able to speak - we call it going nonverbal - and some autistic people can’t speak at all. That doesn’t mean that they can’t think or communicate, though - they may instead communicate via written words, text to speech apps, facilitated typing, sign language, picture boards, etc.
Executive dysfunction. Executive functioning is what allows us to go from thinking about or wanting to do something to actually doing it, it’s what makes us able to keep the different steps required to complete a task straight in our heads and it’s what makes us able to plan and focus on different tasks. Autistic people often have trouble with executive functioning which makes many everyday tasks that most people can just do without thinking twice about it really hard. Imagine that you want to do laundry but your brain doesn’t automatically come up with the steps required to complete the task - take the laundry basket to the washing machine, open the washing machine, put clothes into the washing machine, add soap, etc - instead you’re just standing there, knowing that you somehow have to go from dirty laundry to clean clothes without knowing how to go about it. This is a problem for many autistic people which makes many everyday tasks hard or impossible to do without help. We may need someone to prompt us to do what we need to do or we may need someone to talk us through the steps or we may need visual or written instructions which illustrate the steps required to complete a certain task. Executive dysfunction is the main reason why many autistic people have trouble with basic, everyday tasks that most people their age can easily do without help.
Special interests. Many autistic people have a topic or a thing that they’re deeply, passionately interested in. Some autistic people compare having a special interest to being in love - it’s what your mind drifts to when there’s nothing else to occupy it, it’s the only thing you want to talk about, it’s the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning and it’s the last thing you think of before you fall asleep. This intense level of interest and passion often allows autistic people to excel in their areas of interest even when they may have trouble with basic everyday tasks. Some autistic people have special interests that lasts a life time, other people experience that their special interests change every couple years or maybe every couple months - or in some cases, every couple weeks. Some autistic people have one special interest at a time, other autistic people have many special interests.
Routines. Since the world is often very chaotic and confusing for autistic people due to our atypical sensory processing and our struggles with executive dysfunction and social interaction, many autistic people rely on routines to create a sense of order in a confusing and chaotic world. We usually like to do the same things in the exact same way every day and if something breaks our routine or if something unexpected happens - or if somebody suggests an impulsive trip to the beach on a day where we hadn’t expected to do anything but the usual - it may result in shutdowns or meltdowns. If you want an autistic person to break or change their routine it’s recommended that you warn them in good time and that you give them plenty of time to prepare and adjust.
Unique points of view and different ways of thinking. Due to the fact that autistic people experience the world so differently from how most people experience it, we see the world from a different angle - often allowing us to come up with ideas or thoughts or input or solutions that you wouldn’t get anywhere else. Autistic people often have unique points of view and unusual ways or thinking and learning and this is often a strength - as we say in the autistic community, we are different, not less.
I’ve now summarized some of the more common autistic traits and I hope that this post gave you a better understanding of what autism is and what it means to be autistic. Feel free to reblog and share this post far and wide if you found it helpful or educational.
As someone who happened to buy a lot of coal, I end up with
a lot of diamonds.
You know those carbon filters in fish tanks? I never have to
change mine now. I just sort of wave the guck out? It’s an easy chore.
Don’t forget, there’s carbon in steel. If I take it out,
this whole city’s going down.
Cardiokinesis - Control Hearts
I don’t know why you think this has to do with love. Hearts
are organs that only pump blood. I mean, I guess if your heart beats faster,
you feel like you’re in love.
I spent years in medical school specializing in heart
surgery just so I could discretely fix people’s hearts much faster than they
should be able to. But whenever anyone asks me what my secret to fast and
perfect surgery is, I have to lie and it’s eating me inside.
I can see everyone’s relationships, but sometimes it gets really distracting. All these fibrous lines keep obscuring the cinema screen.
Caelestikinesis - Control Celestial Bodies
Is it weird I can tell you’re an aries? I’m getting that you’re an aries.
Okay, so making the night sky spell out “will you marry me?” was awesome but I think I ruined a bunch of aliens’ homes. I really hope they don’t know I did that.
Being a god of the stars is generally really boring. Nothing’s ever been happening. But this little planet seems to be starting something… Better get closer to watch.
Caelumkinesis - Control the Sky
I can hide as anything that flies. So if you happen to see a bird in my room, don’t chase it out with a broom.
If you’re going to be like that, I can make sure you always get rained on.
The world is so boring. I finally found out how to make dragons and I’m gonna take the initiative and just making this happen.
Chemokinesis - Control Chemical Substances
If it’s on the periodic table, I can mess with it. People generally aren’t ready for their oxygen to become iron.
The hero can’t come and vanquish me if I’ve given them depression.
Now that I’ve trapped you in my moat… It’s acid.
Chromokinesis - Control Colors
A magician’s biggest trick: Turning the entire performance
I have a grudge against someone who somehow muscled their way into my personal art show. I’ll makes sure they never see color ever again.
So I can fly… But it’s very… Flashy. Yeah, it’s a rainbow.
Chronokinesis - Control Time
So, even if I manipulate time, I can’t manipulate space. And Earth moves, so… I kind of killed most of the population. They’re either in space or the mantle.
I’ve been stealing time from everyone and it’s all stored deep underground.
I’ve tricked a constuction crew through a time-portal and now they’re building me a castle in 16th century France. I’ll be king and my castle will never fall.
Cibumkinesis - Control Food
You don’t even know how much pretentious people like to eat my ‘innovative’ foodstuffs. Milk jerky is as weird as it sounds and only comes in 2%
I’ll win every cooking competition, no matter how much I mess up.
May your harvest be blighted and your water poisoned. Think twice before crossing me again.
Cthonikinesis - Control Nether
Powers adapt to new meanings for the word. I’m gonna send
you to minecraft hell.
Your nether regions are so fucked.
How do you feel, facing your own late father in battle?
Cukinesis - Control Copper
When NYC falls into peril again, someone with the ability to
manipulate copper calls upon the ultimate defense… The statue of liberty.
Yeah I can make a shield, but it’s gonna be copper. Sorry I can’t do anything else.
I’ve gotten into the habit of driving by old neighborhoods and making all the copper wiring and pipes be sucked into my truck. It’s only slightly villainous.
Cogitokinesis - Control Thought
If you’re going to be so angry about my favorite song, enjoy it in your head forever.
I make quite the racket erasing unwanted thoughts. Where those thoughts go though is only for me to worry about.
My robots seem too mechanical. I should steal someone’s thoughts to give them a bit of personality.
Cognikinesis - Control Perspectives
Most of the time I just force video games to let me play
first person, I’m not sure what you expected.Forcing people to look at what they’ve become is a lot like
When people make me upset, I like to make them see my actual point of view.
It doesn’t matter how far away something is, if I can see it, I can touch it.
Comakinesis - Control Hair
My stage production of rapunzel is the best in the world. How I found a continuous 20 foot braid is anyone’s best guess. I’ll never tell.
I’ve created a new breed of naturally pink poodles. I’ll be in the lap of luxury for all my days.
No I only have one of these wool sweaters. I can just change it’s color because it’s technically hair.
Combokinesis - Control Combat
Any battle goes may way, from a simple argument to an election. I’ve become the most influential person in the world.
My personal feelings are always above any actual evidence of winning, so seeing that I may be wrong is terrifying. What if I was wrong before?
Now that you’ve shown me what your attack will be, let me eliminate that possibility.
Coronakinesis - Control Corona Energy
Yes, it’s basically like that one godzilla. No, I’m not secretly the kid of godzilla.
You think you’ve seen global warming? You’ve seen nothing yet.
Stars tend to move with their corona, so don’t mind the new stars. They were already there before.
Corrokinesis - Control the Power of Corruption
I really don’t like corruption, so I keep combing the internet for instances of corruption to take it out, hitman style.
I’ve condensed corruption into these special bullets. I want you to shoot all this list, no matter how nice you think they are.
Wait, I can basically make this into a hell-dimension? Awesome. Sin for everyone.
Cryokinesis - Control Ice
If you keep annoying me all the liquid in your body is gonna freeze.
I’ve got the polar ice caps fixed, Antartica is looking good, and I’ve got enough snow cones today’s day at the park.
You’ve gotta believe me, officer! The icicle just plain fell on them! It skewered them!
Crystallokinesis - Control Minerals and Crystals
My modern witchcraft store is stocked full with crystals and stones. And it’s all homemade.
If I really tried, I could get my crystal healing techniques to go towards a doctorate.
You picked the wrong mineshaft to battle me in. You’be basically given me the battle.
Cytokinesis - Control Cells of Organisms
My friend wanted to be a cryptid so we brainstormed for a while and they decided on their form. We still chat when I’m in town.
Even if I’m terminal, I can just fix it. I don’t see why I shouldn’t be allowed to fix you too.
Changing what shape my cells take is the ultimate camouflage. No one suspects the dog.
The One-Night Perfect Relationship | Alex Standall X Reader
English isn’t my first language, so please excuse any mistakes.
Characters: Alex/fem!reader. Clay and Hannah are mentioned.
Warnings: fluffy. Also happy!Alex. And may or may not have some High School Musical songs in the story, but, oh well…
(E/C) stand for “Eye color”/(B/F/N) stand for “Best friend’s name”.
Word Count: 2550 words.
One part of her didn’t want to be there, but the other one,
which she decided to listen to, felt that the night could get better somehow. (Y/N)
was on the bleachers, considerably alone since she didn’t know anyone who was
sitting there, watching people dance with their dates and friends at the dance.
They were jumping around, but they seemed to be having fun while doing it,
which made her feel like dancing too, but everyone there had a group of friends
and she didn’t want to be the weirdo jumping alone.
(Y/N) wanted to dance and her body was starting to send signals
that she needed to move. So she began to sway slightly from side to side,
trying not to draw attention of anyone on the bleachers. When a familiar song
began to play, (Y/N) forgot for a second to try to be discreet and shook her
head as she moved her arms up, letting a small smile escape her lips until she
realized what she was doing, her eyes widening and bringing her arms back down.
Damn the upbeat songs. It was only
for a few seconds, but she had already managed to get someone’s attention.
The girl lowered her head, looking down at her own feet. And
then she felt that sense of when someone is staring at you. The girl’s (E/C)
eyes looked up shyly and started looking for someone who was looking at her,
stopping at a boy with bleached blonde hair who was sitting a little distant of
her. He had a small grin on his face, he
wanted to laugh. This made (Y/N) feel her cheeks heating up as she looked
down again, even more embarrassed.
“Nice moves.” she heard a male voice, which obviously came
from the boy, talking to her. “Hi.”
“Hi.” she gave a small wave, looking sheepishly at
(Y/N) had seen him around school, but she couldn’t remember
if she’d ever heard his name.
“Why are you alone here?” he spoke again after a
few seconds in silence.
(Y/N) grimaced. “I didn’t even know I was coming here today.”
the boy raised an eyebrow at her. “I didn’t plan to come, but my friend
bought two tickets and dragged me here.”
He nodded, staring at the rest of the people in the
bleachers. "Why isn’t she here with you, then?”
“She brought me because she thought her date wasn’t
“But he came.” he completed his reasoning on his own.
“So she dumped you alone here.”
“Sitting here isn’t so
bad.” he gave her a disbelieving glance, but she just laughed. “Why are you here?”
His eyes turned to the dance floor and he pointed to someone
she couldn’t define who it was. “I was hoping to dance with her.”
“Sorry about that.”
“Nah, I deserve it.”
Neither of them said anything for a few more seconds,
watching people still dancing in their strange way.
“What’s your name?” (Y/N) broke the silence, turning to him.
“Alex.” he gave her a small smile, turning his head toward
her. “And you are?”
“(Y/N).” she smiled back at him.
Alex looked at her for a few more seconds before pointing to
the empty seat beside her. “Can I…?” he asked for her permission to approach.
“Sure.” (Y/N) smile widened as the boy crawled over to her
The dance was supposed to be, well, for dancing, but soon
(Y/N)’s urge to dance was decreasing while talking to Alex. On the dance floor
they hardly would be able to talkbut there where they were, they could enjoy
each other’s company more. They spent more than half of the Winter Formal
getting to know each other better, starting a competition of who had the most
shameful story to tell and, overall, talked about everything.
"So, I was already in my pajamas and getting ready to
watch my shows when I heard a horn outside.” (Y/N) started telling the story of
that night, seeming to amuse Alex with it. “And I went to see who it was and
(B/F/N) was all ‘Get in loser, we’re going to the dance’.”
“The ‘Mean Girls’ of real life.” he said with a laugh.
"Yeah, I totally am Lindsay Lohan.”
Alex looked at the girl from head to toe before smiling.
"You’re not upset about being left by your friend?”
“Not at all.” she shrugged. “I wasn’t joking when I
said it wasn’t so bad to be here. I think it’s kind of cool to be able to see
this big socialization of confused teenagers from afar.” (Y/N) pointed at them
dramatically, then turning to point at the boy next to her. "And a little
socialization right here.”
Alex still had a smile on his face as he took the girl’s
finger pointing to his face.
"I’ve never noticed you until today, you know.” he
said, then frowned. “Did that sound rude?”
“A little bit, yeah.” (Y/N) chuckled as he apologized.
“Well, I had noticed you before.”
That seemed to get his attention, his eyebrows arching with
curiosity. “Oh, really?”
"I took an interest in you because of your hair.”
“Oh, this.” Alex
grimaced as he pointed at his hair.
“It’s like it’s from another world. I always wondered what
it would be like to touch it.”
“Be careful there, it’ll take you to another dimension.” he grinned,
(Y/N) smiled, looking once more at the dance floor,
something catching her eyes. She frowned at the scene she was seeing before she
began to laugh. Alex smiled slightly, caught by the girl’s laughter.
"What are you laughing at?”
“They got style.” she answered, motioning two people jumping
in a very strange –yet funny- way. (Y/N)
managed to recognize the boy as Clay Jensen, but she wasn’t sure of the girl’s
name, even though she had already seen and heard about her.
“Your moves are better, though.” (Y/N) laughed at his
words, remembering the ridiculous dance that had performed.
“Shut up.” she smiled slightly, listening to a slow song
start playing and people start to pair up. “Wanna go out?”
“Hm?” he looked confused.
“The dance is about to end. Want to walk out there a little?”
“Yeah, sure.” Alex stood up and reached out to help her up. What a gentleman.
He was walking ahead and as soon as the girl stood up the
urge to dance came back. Then she tried to sway a little as she stepped out of
the bleachers. Wrong move. She stumbled and almost fell, catching the attention
of a few people who looked at her, laughing.
"What the hell are you looking at?” Alex asked
them as he came back to help the girl out.
(Y/N)’s ankles ached slightly making the girl whimper down
as she walked. She saw her friend looking at them both with a smirk, causing
the girl to roll her eyes and lower her head.
“What the hell was that?” Alex asked as they walked toward
the exit from the school.
“I was trying to perform, if you didn’t notice.” she
stopped to massage her leg for a second before continuing to walk. “As if it
were High School Musical or something.”
Alex’s head turned to her with the mention of the movie, a
smile on his face. "So it looks like I got a Disney fan here.”
“Totally, man.” she said before she felt the cold night air
hit her face as they reached the outside.
They continued to walk in silence until they were completely
off the school grounds and started walking on the sidewalk, where some people
passed as well. Alex started to walk slightly faster than (Y/N), staying a
little ahead of her before turning to her, making her stop walking too.
“Alex…?” she frowned when she saw him taking a deep
“Livin’ in my own world, didn’t understand.” he began to sing. Oh no, he wasn’t doing that. (Y/N)’s mouth
opened slightly, not knowing exactly what to do. “That anything can happen, when you take a chance.”
(Y/N) was still, not knowing what to do, when Alex looked at
her expectantly, making a smile spread on her face, before she cleared her
throat. “I never believed in.” the
boy smirked at her. “What I couldn’t see,
I never opened my heart.”
“Ooh.” he made
sure to say it in a very dramatic way, which made (Y/N) laugh.
“To all the
possibilities.” she continued to laugh as he approached her. “Uh.”
Alex started to swing toward her as they sang. “I know that something has changed.”
(Y/N) mimicked his movements and began to swing too. “Never felt this way.” she was sure that people were looking at
them at that moment. “And right here
tonight, this could be the start of something new.” after all, it wasn’t so
usual to see two teenagers singing loudly in the middle of the street. “It feels so right to be here with you.”
they both grinned at each other. “And now
looking in your eyes, I feel in my heart the start of something new.”
The boy, with an amused smile, raised one of his hands, motioning
for her to hold it. “Now who’d ever
(Y/N) copied his smile, raising her hand and intertwining in
his as they sang. “We’d both be here
“And the world looks
so much brighter.” she continued as he lowered their hands and pulled her
down the sidewalk. “With you by my side.”
Alex seemed to have found something he was looking for on the
sidewalk, letting go of (Y/N)’s hand, and walking quickly to a bench, getting up
on it as they continued. "I
know…” he turned to her, holding out his hands to help the girl up. “That something has changed.” (Y/N) laughed
through her words, shaking her head as she walked quickly to where he was. “Never felt this way.” she accepted his help.
“I know it for real, this could be the
start of something new.” Alex took careful steps, imitating with his hands
the moves she had made earlier that night, making her laugh while doing the
same thing, shaking her head from side to side. “It feels so right to be here with you.” (Y/N) felt like jumping,
just like people were doing at the Winter Formal, but she knew she would either
break the bench or fall from there. “And
now looking in your eyes.” Alex slowed his dance moves, looking for the
girl’s eyes; (Y/N) did the same. “I
feel in my heart …” they smiled at each other. “The start of something new.”
They kept staring at each other for a few more seconds,
neither of them daring to break the eye contact, until a car stopped in front
of them, honking. (B/F/N). (Y/N) got startled, almost felling off the bench
because of it, causing Alex to hold her, holding the girl by her waist.
“Thanks.” she murmured a little sheepishly.
“Hey girl, you want a ride?” (B/F/N) asked.
(Y/N) was about to accept when Alex’s voice caught her
attention. “If you want, I can take you home.” a small hopeful glow
gleamed in his eyes, and only then she realized that his arm hadn’t left her
waist. Not that she was going to complain
“Alex will take me.” she turned again to (B/F/N),
who smirked, nodding.
“She better get home alive, Standall.”
“As you wish, ma'am.” the girl laughed at his answer
before winking at them and driving away. “She seems to be cooler than
(Y/N) laughed. “Sometimes she is.”
“Come on.” he released his arm from her waist and getting
down from the bench, then helping the girl do the same.
Thank God that High School Musical performance hadn’t taken
them so far from the school parking lot. (Y/N) had always complained that school
was really far from her home, so she had to wake up early if she wanted to be
in time for class. But at that moment she couldn’t be more grateful for that,
it meant she would have more time to talk to Alex.
In the end, she could see that the part of her that thought
that night could have got better had guessed right. She’d met Alex and that had
made that night exceptional. They had hit it off, and that night seemed somehow
magical. So that could only mean: either that was really the beginning of
something new or that had been an one-night perfect relationship. (Y/N) sincerely
bet on the second, although she wanted the first one to be right.
An one-night perfect relationship is the one you have, well,
for one night. When you aren’t suffocated with your daily problems and the
pressures of your friends. You are a diferente person on this one night, more
relaxed and even happier. Who would know how things would be between them if
they talk to each other every day, or what would it be like in front of their
friends? Well, there’s no way of knowing if it’s just a one-night thing or
something else until you try it, what really counts is making the night
These thoughts passed over (Y/N) mind as they got out of the
car, since Alex had offered to walk with her to the door.
“Well, I’m sure I won’t not notice you from now on.” he
said when they reached her door.
"Well, it’s not just your hair that makes me interested
in you anymore.” she said, a small smirk on her lips.
He chuckled. “I’m glad.”
They looked at each other for a few more seconds, both
thinking practically the same thing. Alex wanted to kiss her as much as she
wanted to kiss him. But would not that be
wrong? Would not it be too soon? But then again, what if the next day they didn’t
feel the same thing they felt at that moment? Don’t think too much, make the
night worthwhile. It’s now or never.
Alex quickly leaned toward her, pressing their lips
together, placing one of his hands on her waist and the other on the girl’s
cheek. (Y/N) wasted no time and soon began kissing him back, moving her lips
against his, placing her hands on his neck, but only so she could touch his
hair. Alex noticed that and gave a small smile into the kiss, which soon turned
into a laugh, making him pull away from her and rest his forehead on hers as he
“Sorry.” he said still laughing, which made the girl laugh
"I really thought for a moment that this was going to
take me to another dimension.” it only made him laugh more, being accompanied
The laughter took a while to decrease, until there were only
smiles on their faces. “Bye, Gabriella.”
“See you around, Troy.”
Alex gave her a long peck before letting go of her and
starting to walk away, a smile still on his face. (Y/N) watched him for a few
seconds before opening the door, listening to him honking at her, waving
goodbye from inside the car before leaving. The girl closed the door, resting
her back on it. Whether it was the beginning of something new or just a one-night
thing, it was worth it.
I’m sure the fandom is already aware of the incredible fanfic, The Way He Looks by @gafou! These are just little snippet comic pages of my favorite parts from the story, so there’s absolutely no flow to it.
YoixPokemon crossover for Artprint. I have Minami and currently sketching Phichit (and may be Chris…? or may be Otabek? not sure, lol)
[I know it’s been done a lot but I think ppl used a lot of ‘ice type’ to refer the show, so I thought why not pick actual teams? but idk if it’s a good balance. I tried my best. I also considered their costume, color scheme and personality into account picking the pokemons. especially the starters.]
Okay! I may have gone a little overboard with explanation, but I hope this helps out!! <3
So here’s a break down of how I made my Niko Cosplay!
First the hat!
I ordered a wide brim felt hat in the color I wanted off of amazon I think, and added these ears also made of stiff felt. I had to play around with the shape until it was what I wanted, and then I cut out two parts for each ear. The primary shape and then the inside of the ear so that it’s flushed against the hat! I will tell you I used lots and lots of hot glue, so be careful! And the final touch was to paint the outside of the ear to match the color of the hat!
Next the Light bulb! (Sun)
This is actually a portable solar powered porch light that I found online. All I really had to do was paint the light on the inside yellow, so it shone through a more yellow color. It is a bit small for my taste,So I might look for a replacement in the future, but its a pretty sturdy little thing for now! (I may or may not have dropped it once or twice at the last convention I was at ^^)
I would say my sewing skills are so-so at best, so if you have a sewing machine and know how to pin and sew in a straight line. You’re good to go! I pretty much found an over-sized shirt from a thrift shop (Cheapest way to get cosplay clothes!) that would sit almost like a dress on me and I cut off the sleeves. My new replacement bell sleeves are actually…pant legs. Yup! Because I like to find any short cut possible, The bell sleeves are actually the legs I cut off from some big yoga pants! Sew the bottom of the pant leg to the spot where the previous sleeves were, and boom! Bell sleeves~ And then any left over material i had from the pants I used to make the pattern on the front! Hem all the rough edges, and you have yourself a Niko shirt!
The scarf is simply a bunch of fleece sewn together. Its 4, 5 feet long rectangles. Sew two pairs end to end, then sew them all together and leave room at the bottoms for the tassels. Cut strips at the end and just tied the pieces together like a tie blanket would be!
The whiskers are also make from felt! I hot glued them onto a headband so that it sits underneath the wig I have for Niko~ Notice how the felt reaches down further than the headband, I made it that way so that the whiskers sit closer to my cheek!
I hope this helps you out! I’m def excited to see more Niko, and Oneshot cosplayers out there!! Best of luck!! <3
