this picture does no justice

March 1, 2017

these are a few things that I hate
I hate taking pictures of the stars
with my phone– they never
look right, not like how we see
them with our eyes
a digital picture of the moment
does not do it any justice
I hate writing poetry
maybe these are more love letters
than they are poems
I hate wanting to fix things
I hate that I worry
when did I develop this anxiety
I hate that our conversations
consist of only my apologies
because I’ll only ever
answer back with
another I’m sorry baby

Blankets are here! These things are goddamn massive (60 by 80 inches), incredibly soft, and it’s around 90 belles thick. Would have been 94 but a few sweeties got cut off in the bleed around the outside. Anyways these things are crazy nice, and they’d better be for how much they were to print haha, this picture really does not do them justice.

I’ll be carrying 5 of them at EFNW and they’ll be $110 each. I’m confident that I’ll be carrying the largest, softest, and highest quality built blankets in the hall so trust me when I say you’ll be getting what you pay for. (If you don’t want to take my word for it, I’ll have a display one that you can feel for yourself). This is also the only time I will ever print this design, next time I’ll be trying out the bordered version so there’s only ever going to be 5 of these.

Anyways if you’re at EFNW, hmu fam cause damn do I got the sweeties. Oh and shout outs to my roommate for holding this thing up for me haha

After being away from my computer for about a month, been trying to use the good ol’ paper and pencil~ Starting with le Splatoon crossover~
Tho the picture does not do justice, omg. <XD

Ask-Alex-Hedgehog, omg so sorry that I can’t make it to megacon this year and hope this gift makes up for it! :’D

daziy  asked:

Have you ever done the batfam as benders in the Avatar world?

actually, @littleamericanduck and I threw around this AU for a while (Bren I still have those conversations in my inbox) which was great fun so I’ll just pull the basics from that. We kept everything the same: Gotham, the technology just… some people have bending.

Bruce- Non-bender but an expert fighter. I read an AMAZING ATLA fic where there was this fighter who was an expert in all 4 bending styles without any bending and that’s what I picture B as. He goes out and does the whole ‘justice things’ using all sorts of bending moves and other techniques without any ability. Still kick-ass and very frustrated with his crazy bending children. All the kids specialize in their area but are taught all styles but B.

Alfred- Bren and I talked about this, I was really taken by the idea of firebending Alfred. He was a warrior and a hotshot back in the day and was content to spend his days using his abilities to only light candles. But once he got drafted into Bruce’s war on crime, well old habits die hard. Taught B a lot of his moves and how to disarm benders. Helped Jason control his fire when he first came. A warm, gentle presence most of the time but the sparks fly when his family tries his very generous patience.

Dick- Everyone wants to say air but, to me, Dick has all the traits of a waterbender: calm but persistant, able to divert and adapt, both a calming presence and a cold storm so Dickie is a waterbender. Bruce had no idea what to do with this kid and his insane magic water (maybe the Grayson’s were a bending troupe? That’d be cool) so he trains him. An immensely skilled bender in costume, downplays his bending in public. Learned mostly from B but also trained with other masters. Also his escrima sticks are frozen ice sticks that he can use and bend and it’s hella cool just imagine.

Jason- firbender, no surprise. Used it harshly and dirtily as a child, never really took the time to master it or his emotions so his fire was imprecise and all over the place. Bruce and Alfie helped to tame the fire in him so it obeyed him and he became quite adept with it. Still too harsh for B’s tastes and a few too many criminals got nasty burns. Jay was burned and blown up in the warehouse which gave him seriously problems when he came back. He had a hard time conjuring his fire bc he kept seeing the fires that killed him. Spent years training in non-bending combat liek B to compensate so Red Hood was truly anoymous until he struck until instinctually with one of Alfred’s moves. Now that he’s closer in the fam, learning to be comfortable with his bending again and reign in his ever present temper which was only exacerbated by the Pit.

Babs- Non-bender like B, Dick used to look down on her for it but Barb quickly put the wtaerbender in his place. Basically everything is the same except she has to deal with water all over her apartment and singe marks on her walls and wind constantly in her face and dirt everywhere. She and B commiserate together.

Cass- I’m not sure, I’m tempted to say chi blocking non-bender again who was honed by Cain to be a fighting machine capable of taking down basically everyone but also i kind of like the idea of her being a waterbender too but, like Tim, was discouraged from using it. She later develops this ability with Dick but still doesn’t use it much, only when she feels comfortable. Either way, she’s a chi-blocker and will not hesitate to fuck up her brothers and temporarily paralyze them or take their bending. They fear her for this but also so much love and respect.

Tim- Hear me out, airbender Tim. Light hearted but a bit detached from the world, calm but hiding a tempest within, rather avoid and evade conflict, outthink rather than outfight. Airbenders are super rare, not found in families but just popping up out of nowhere in families. The Drakes are a prominant non-bending family and thought bending was “beneath” Tim so they didn’t register him. Hid his abilities out of shame for years, even from Bruce when he first became Robin. But he could only hide it so long before it came out. Bruce trained Tim then sent him off to prominant airbenders to teach him to love his bending. Not as flashy as the others, uses it precisely (lightly avoid attacks, push/pull things) but he is also capable of immense storms when prompted.

Steph- Earthbender hella, strong, stubborn and dependable. Because she’s a bender things vigilanting will be easy but Tim quickly proves her wrong. Still he takes the time to train her in what B taught him, secretly confides in his airbending abilities before anyone else. Despite being opposite elements, they get on super well complimenting each other’s movements. Studies bending on her own, takes classes and improves thanks to Tim’s help. B is still annoyed but eventually gives her better training as Robin. She’s still sloppy, doesn’t always take her abilities seriously but she’s always there to back people up, steady and immovable like the earth.

Dami- Also an earthbender. I can see the Al Ghul family being this intense earthbending dynasty, connected to the earth and desiring to spare it from modern society. Bruce again doesn’t know how to deal with this child with his abilities so he doesn’t. Dick steps up to the plate and mentors Damian. Dami had only know hard, unyielding earth but now gets to know cool waters and forgiving waves. Unconsciously adjusts his earthbending style with more waterbending techniques to create a unique, powerful style. Also bonds with Steph over being the only two earthbenders and part of his antagonism with Tim is the difference in the opposing elements.

It’s a fun AU, I still think my favorite part though is all the kids, one of each element like to band together and pretend someone is the avatar. One time they schemed together and made it look like Batman was bending all four elements and you bet at least 3 villains collapsed and crime went down to nothing for about a week. Jason is still laughing his ass off over it.

(Re-uploading this one because I accidentally deleted the post instead of editing it… >.>;;;;)

I commissioned @mindofjen​ to draw a scene from my fic Transference because I’m trash and a sucker for her art and it turned out AMAZING!! I’m in aaaawwwweeee~~

Tumblr resizing literally does not do this picture justice, so here’s a bigger version you can zoom in on.

Seriously guys, go check her stuff out! <3 <3 <3

My Class pins came in! They actually have a good bit of detail in them. This picture does not do justice to them at all! I can see why it was priced the way it was. They resemble the emblem you are rewarded for when completing your class specific pages in the Book of Ages!

And of the three random pins, I got Osiris!

I imagined her hair down in soft waves that would reflect the light from off the water and the relaxation she feels in her heart because she has never been so sure of anything in her entire life.

I imagined the cloth of her dress to be much like her hair. Simple, flowing, light, like the soul of a woman unburdened by duty, by her pain and walls of her past.

I imagined something that would reveal the slight curve of her breasts, because when Killian stopped to pick his jaw off the floor at how beautiful his Swan is he then might raise a cocky eyebrow and whisper scandalously in her ear about her toying with him and him resolute in seeing the rest of her later that night. Or in the hold of his ship 10 minutes after the ceremony.

I imagined them on a beach near the water, their toes in the sand and the sound of the breaking waves on the shore heard just beyond the din of chatter from a small band of loved ones they invited to share their intimate day.

The only thing about that picture that does justice to my imagination is the look of pride and joy on her parent’s faces and the incandescent glow on Emma’s.

And that is okay. To be disappointed if the reality doesn’t fulfill the fairy tale we had imagined, just as it is okay if it does. 

We’ve all waited and imagined this moment since a reluctant princess climbed a beanstalk with a pirate. We all get to hope the reality meets the expectation of the fantasy we have hoped for these two since that moment. It’s okay to be sad if it doesn’t.

Two days in a row!!!

This picture does not do justice to how sweaty I actually am 😂😂😂. I walked on the treadmill for an hour at varying elevations I even did 10.0 for like 7 minutes 😳. And maintained at least 5.0 for the rest of the time. 👍🏻. That’s all I did tonight but I feel good. My legs feel a little sore. But a good sore! Happy Tuesday y'all. Have a great night!

Large bird handling

Submission: For those who are curious, here’s some large bird handling from when I used to do raptor rehabilitation and education. This is one of our exhibit golden eagles getting a checkup. We always wore gloves (welders gloves for the big birds like these) when catching and restraining them for our protection. The bird is held against your front with your forearms keeping the wings tucked in. On smaller raptors you may be able to hold both legs in one fist which leaves an arm free. Not with these big guys. They need a hand around each foot. This one’s also wearing a leather hood to help keep him calm while getting his exam. Not sure this picture does the bird’s size and strength justice. For reference, I’m 6’ tall, and he’s very hunched over.

(Please excuse my goober face, this was my first time restraining one and I was very excited)
