Hello~
This my sim Dae-Hyun ♡

INFO:
Since many have been asking me if I can upload my sims, now I’ve decided to release one of them. I might upload more in the future, but most likely not because this took up most of my time. He’s my precious so please take care of him!  (。•́︿•̀。)

ALSO!! I’ve thrown in a lipstick of mines so it will complete his look. (*DISCLAIMER* This is one of my first creations so if its not perfect, sorry). I would of also thrown in a facemask but I’m still tweaking up mines. ><

TOU:

  • Please don’t claim my stuff as your own!  ( ̄︿ ̄)
  • Please don’t reupload.
  • Give me credit if you use him as a base sim.
  • Please tag me so I can see him in your game! ♡

                       DOWNLOAD HIM HERE

Thanks to all the wonder creators! ☆⌒ヽ(*‘、^*)chu

Taking the Signs on a Date
  • Aries: Theme Parks or Concerts. Adrenaline junkies like things that make their heart tick even faster than you do, and let's them know you're up for a challenge.
  • Taurus: at-home movie marathon complete with snacks. Comfy and cozy, but free to do as you both please. This opens the door for a depth of trust.
  • Gemini: Picnics, hiking, etc. Outdoorsy things that can be experienced leisurely, and at their own rhythmic pace.
  • Cancer: Bowling or Mini Golf. Games that are simple but fun keep the mood light and the pressure off, while still giving time to joke around.
  • Leo: Game houses that have things like Laser Tag, Skee ball, or pull. Fun lovers that don't need all the talk! They need to know they can have a good time and connect with you through action.
  • Virgo: Art Museums or exhibits. The wonder of other people's work sets the mood for picking each others brains, and opening up.
  • Libra: Conventions or Celebrations. Prone to being quiet, going to an event where they're surrounded by not only things they love, but people that love the same things, really brings Libra out of their shell.
  • Scorpio: Late night car rides or a night at the club. They want to feel like they're doing something they arent supposed to, breaking the rules a little bit, with you, while still feeling/knowing they're safe.
  • Sagittarius: Go-Karts or rock climbing, followed by stargazing. The fluidity of going from action to stillness makes them feel like they can enjoy your company anywhere, in any mood.
  • Capricorn: Dance Party. Not one to shy from being the center of attention, showing off some moves is a good way to up their interest in you and make them feel good.
  • Aquarius: Aquarium or Botanical Gardens. Having a hard time expressing their feelings, looking in the same direction allows them to have the intelligent conversations that they want without the pressure of eye contact. Being surrounded by wonders of the world doesn't hurt, either.
  • Pisces: Dinner and a Movie. Not afraid of being cliche, much joy comes from conversation, combined with the cinematic experience of comfort in the darkness.
Disney XD Heroes in problematic nutshells.

Randy Cunningham: Misinterprets sacred knowledge so he can misuse ancient powers.

Penn Zero: Does other people’s jobs for them instead of giving them an opportunity to learn from their own mistakes.

Star Butterfly: Her birthright makes her a danger to herself and everyone around her… especially everyone around her.

Wander: His lack of problems is a problem in and of itself… 

Dipper: His curiosity will kill everyone’s cats.

Some Ereloy HCs/Prompts part 1:

I can’t stop thinking about these dorks, so I’ve decided to share a few of my own headcanons.  I’m not the best writer, so feel free to expand on these if you want ^^ (I just ask that you tag me so I can read it).

  • The Vanguard members are constantly gossiping about Erend & Aloy’s growing relationship.  They’ll pester Erend with questions until he blows up and sends them back to work.  However, every time Aloy comes to visit the barracks they act like perfect angels & she usually (inadvertently) let’s something slip which only gives them more fodder to tease Erend with.  He exasperatedly tells her not to encourage them.  They also have a running bet as to how long it will take the two to finally get together.

  • As they’re traveling, Aloy collects flowers and absentmindedly weaves a flower crown.  When they stop to rest, Aloy comes up behind Erend & places it on top of his head.  He grins bemusedly, but leaves it there the rest of their trip back to Meridian, if only to see Aloy smile.  As they pass through the gate, a few of the guards snicker. Erend flushes, snatches the band of flowers from his head, and tells his men off gruffly.  However, he keeps the flower crown & places it next to his bed to remind him of Aloy’s smile.

  • One night they lay out under the stars & Aloy points out constellations & what what the Nora call them. Erend tells her the Oseram names for the few that he knows. As the night air gets colder they end up moving closer together until Aloy’s head is resting on Erend’s shoulder.

  • At first Erend becomes rather jealous (& a little self conscious) when people hit on Aloy (bc let’s face it, it happens quite often) & she doesn’t acknowledge their advances or turn them down. He finally asks her about it & feels relieved and a little foolish when she says she honestly doesn’t even notice when she’s being flirted with. Well, that explains a lot about when they first met.

    I’ll probably post some more later. (๑ ˊ͈ ᐞ ˋ͈ )ƅ̋
Molly Weasley could definitely tell Fred and George apart

Occasionally I’ll read a fic where Molly will honestly not be able to tell Fred/George apart or where literally no one can tell them apart, and it bugs me.

She’s their mother, of course she can tell Fred and George apart. Harry can tell them apart by October of his first year. The only time they don’t have their own dialogue tags is when Harry first meets them at the platform. From then on, it’s “Fred dropped a stack of books on George’s head,” rather than “one of the twins dropped a stack of books on the other’s head.”

On multiple occasions, Harry and Ron are able to tell the difference on voice alone.

Molly occasionally gets them mixed up because she has six close-in-age sons with the same hair color, and she’s not giving them 100% of her attention.

I’m sure Fred and George have heard “FrGeorge” and “GeorFred” more than a few times from their mother. Ron’s probably gotten “PerRon” a few times too. Even Ginny has probably heard it a few times.

Kuroken Headcanons
  • Kenma often needs time alone to “charge himself” as Kuroo puts it. Too much interaction exhausts Kenma, and whenever he wants to be left alone for a few hours, Kuroo will collect the softest blankets he owns and give them to his boyfriend before giving him time to himself.
  • Contrary to popular belief, Kenma doesn’t mind Bokuto… in small doses. The thing with Kuroo is that he and Bokuto come as a package, so more often than not Bokuto will show up and tag along with them wherever they go. Kenma’s only saving grace is that Akaashi is almost always with Bokuto, and they often go off on their own to give themselves a break.
  • Kenma is more conservative with displays of affection. He lets Kuroo cuddle him and hold him, but he likes to save the small kisses he peppers Kuroo’s face with for special occasions just to see the flush that spreads all the way down Kuroo’s neck. 
  • Kuroo knows better than anyone when Kenma needs to leave a situation. He can read it on his face as plain as day and never hesitates to give his boyfriend a way out of the situation they’re in. 
  • Kenma is actually very good at English. He mostly knows how to say phrases he hears over gaming systems when playing against people from around the world. Kuroo is sometimes shocked at what comes out of Kenma’s mouth. 
  • Kuroo is literally the biggest virgin on the Nekoma team. Kenma knows how to go about things much more smoothly than Kuroo, who flushes at even the thought of a kiss. 
  • Whenever Kuroo is pissing Kenma of, he’ll tell Bokuto something super embarrassing about Kuroo to make his boyfriend suffer. The only drawback is that Akaashi suffers by proxy.
  • When Kenma and Kuroo first slept together, Kenma was the one who topped. Kuroo was way too nervous about hurting Kenma that he insisted he bottom.

can I ask how you got so many followers? like you're amazing and kind, so you totally deserve it but I guess what I mean is like how would somebody else who does similar things to you (spread positivity, doing typography, giving out advice when asked) get attention?, I love the followers I have and it's not about having a number count, I just want to be able to reach out and help as many people as I can and I don't feel like I'm managing to do that?

I totally understand anon!! Things like this may take some time. I’m so proud of you though, you’re doing amazing things and it makes me so happy. The biggest key is continuing to make your own content, i.e. your edits!! Make sure to tag them so people can find them easily and don’t be shy about taking requests, either. And of course, if you ever need me to, I can promo you and add you to the list of positivity blogs on my page. Don’t be afraid to ask! (:

Can i have a ship too (TO or Teen Wolf) if there's not any problem with that? I'm 5'2, dark hair with highlights. At first sigh I'm shy but later i can say 'i'm the heart of the party'. I like to watch movies, read books , go for a walk or go to a party there's no between. I'm not that confident and sometimes afraid of try new things but when i do then i'm very courageous doing them. Also i'm bilingual and i struggle with english 😬

Hi, of course you can! 


I ship you with Stiles Stilinski. He is not so confident himself but if you give him some time, he’d definitely be fun to be around with. He’d tag along whatever you’re up to and actually enjoy it. I think someone who can encourage him to try new things and take step away from his own comfort zone is perfect for him. On the other hand, he’s very supportive as well and help you as well as he’s able to. 

★ OMG ★

I’m totally in disbelief here… I never thought that my doujinshi would reach this far!! ( In fact, I never thought that it would get liked by so many! That’s crazy!! o.o ) Recently, I saw on Youtube that some were making visual and audio montage with it, and… I was in total shock. I still can’t believe that these talented people takes of their own time to make ( AWESOME ) montages with my amateur works. I didn’t even have to tell them to put me in the credits! ( They understand!! TwT ) One of them got my attention, because they did very professional jobs, and that’s why I want to give them some publicity…

* Agressively waiting for part 3 *

it’s time for unpopular silm opinions

Melkor seduced Mairon because of his cleverness and talents, not because of his nice ass. Melkor doesn’t kiss him/fuck him/or do something erotic while seduce him, and new Utumno lieutenant was a virgin. Once, Melkor give him as a reward one of his own concubines to show Mairon how amazing can be feelings of a mortal flesh. Some days (or years, who knows how long ainur can make sex lol) later Mairon comes to Melkor and told that he wants to try the same with him.

Melkor’s face  at that moment was brilliant

anonymous asked:

Hi, I'm interested in hearing a bit about how you write Garnet, if you have the time. Thank you!

Not sure how strictly writing-related I can make it, but I’ll certainly give it a try! 

I went looking for earlier wordy Garnet posts, and I found some here, here, here (this post is quite old and kinda funny to read with what we know now, but it - and its tags especially - still reflects a lot of my main Garnet feelings), and here, if you want to check them out.

I think one of the most important things to keep in mind with Garnet in general and that I see people struggle with post-Jailbreak is that she is her own person. In a writing sense, this is especially important if you’re going for Garnet POV. If I want to include Ruby and Sapphire in things, and I often do, the way I kind of conceptualise it is that, rather than Ruby and Sapphire piloting a mech called Garnet, you have Garnet going around with Ruby and Sapphire sitting on her shoulders and occasionally chattering like those little angels and devils they use for consciences in old cartoons, you know? A bit like in this promo.

Fusion is obviously a concept that has both none and many parallels and almost-equivalents to us humans, which is, I think, what makes it so fascinating, and why writing from the POV of someone who lives her life as a fusion is both challenging and interesting - and potentially very rewarding. Fusion “headspaces” like the stuff we’ve seen in the show with Malachite and Stevonnie can be an interesting thing to explore. In Garnet’s case, there’s sometimes just one person there, but most of the time it’s really three people - only in times of great upset or crisis, close to splitting apart, does it become two. She’s also not this even split of Ruby and Sapphire traits that can be neatly sorted into two baskets or whatever, and things like “Garnet is crying out of this one eye, means it’s Ruby who is upset” just don’t work. Keeping It Together is an amazing episode for getting a better understanding of Garnet and I feel I’ve rewatched it countless times while getting into a Garnet-writing space (also, post-KIT hurt/comfort is an instant win if you want to pander to me, just fyi).

With the obvious big deal of fusion out of the way, we have the other big Garnet issue, which is her future vision. Rebecca Sugar gave a nice summary of it in this year’s Comic Con interview:

[Garnet’s] future vision is specifically their combined power. There’s a way I like to think about Garnet’s future vision: Sapphire can see the future if she is completely passive. When you see her in the past and she knows what’s going to happen, it’s what will happen if she doesn’t intervene with anything, she’s a completely passive character at that time. Ruby is extremely impulsive and was able to derail what she knew would happen by changing it. Garnet’s future vision is not Sapphire’s future vision, it’s a series of possibilities based on what would happen if she did do something. Sapphire on her own would never do something but they can track possible outcomes of their combined personalities. That’s why her power is not always flawless, but a lot more expansive. 

We know from examples such as Pearl’s deception in Cry for Help that Garnet has to actively look into the future and seek out probabilities - in that instance, her attempts to find a specific future outcome with Peridot completely blinded her to the fact that Pearl was the one fixing the communication hub. From a ficcing perspective, it can be a real gift if used right, especially in more plot-heavy things. It also gets pretty heavy when you consider just how many highly realistic visions of things going wrong Garnet puts herself through on a regular basis. Kinda related, a nice thing to notice is Garnet usually fiddles with her shades when she’s actively using future vision.

More technical things, hm… don’t try to write her accent. Trying to render a dialect or accent leads to an unintelligible mess of weirdly placed apostrophes more often than not and can really take you out of a story (it’s frustrating to have to puzzle over what a character just said). Just write what she’s saying and get the speech patterns down as best as you can and have faith that your readers know what Garnet sounds like.

Garnet generally doesn’t talk a whole lot, but when she does she makes it count and it is usually in brief, straightforward statements. She’s hilarious (Master of Comedy™) but her jokes tend to be these deadpan things with killer delivery rather than, say, Amethyst and Steven’s ridiculous puns. She’s super Cool and quite a bit reserved, but in a very deliberate way, like she’s keeping up an image (which she is, because she is also a big dork - especially if we’re talking about love and fusion). She also isn’t very… hm, I’m not quite sure how to put this, but… she isn’t very dramatically physically demonstrative most of the time, or rather she has her own brand of it, she’s just kinda lowkey casually physically affectionate, accepting, and present? Like carrying Steven around (often on her head) or letting Pearl cling to her and hide behind her, stuff like that.

This is the usual, of course, which only serves to highlight occasions where it’s all flipped; where Garnet clings to Pearl and quietly screams over Smoky Quartz for an entire minute, for example, or breaks down when faced with the fusion experiments, or gathers up her entire family and hugs the hell out of them. Dunno, it’s just that like so many things about her, she really makes it count and it stands out to me. I like that we’ve had more and more of these instances - a big thing with Garnet now compared to Garnet in season one is how much more open and relaxed she is, and this progression is something I adore and hope to see more of (I also really really want to see more of her goofing off with Amethyst). You can also sort of keep track of this if you take note whenever she removes her shades (which has been happening more and more often, too!), usually in really touching, honest moments, taking great care to be approachable, and allowing herself to be vulnerable.

Notably, while Pearl is the show’s go-to Exposition Provider, it’s usually Garnet who sits or kneels down to Steven’s level and calmly explains something about his powers or Gem magic or Rose to him. She has this whole… special gentle tone of voice when she does it, I love it, it’s the best. In Log Date she does this for Peridot, too. Another one of my favourite things was brought up during last year’s Comic Con and it’s the fact that Garnet never asks questions - that’s an actual official guideline for SU writers:

Q: When it comes to tie-ins like the comics, for example, what kind of input do you have?

REBECCA SUGAR: I’m very much in the show all the time, and everything that gets made somewhere else is like a little harder to collaborate on because the show takes up so much of my time, so we talk broad things about the characters. For example, Garnet never asks questions. Ever. She’s sure of everything she says, so if you’re putting this in, she’ll never ask a question.

IAN JONES-QUARTEY: If you see Garnet ask a question in something, it’s not canon.

It’s neat that this is a thing in-universe, too. Notably it was recently amusingly lampshaded in Know Your Fusion, when she wanted to ask Steven and Amethyst what they were planning together and ended up getting Pearl to ask them for her. Even her backstory episode is called The Answer - and it features what is perhaps the root of this, a great scene of confused newbie fusion Garnet being told by Rose Quartz:

No more questions. Don’t ever question this. You already are the answer.

She is often almost aggressively positive about herself - Garnet always wins, Garnet is awesome, all that (very true) stuff. It’s very much a part of her rebellion: we know now that she’s had (and has) to prove this (herself, her own right to even exist) over and over - hell, in her very first seconds of existence she was called “disgusting”. From another recent interview, a note related to that:

Garnet’s confidence is so much of her character, because it’s something she earned, and this was the first time we’d get to show her original state, a being that exploded out of an outrageously romantic gesture.

The above interview also mentions the team dynamic often being split in a Garnet + Pearl/Amethyst + Steven sense, and this is something I find very interesting. Garnet and Pearl are the ones who’ve been through the war, who’ve been with Rose the longest, who pal around and reminisce with Bismuth, and who for better or worse know Homeworld best (the reveal in The Answer that Garnet herself was never actually on Homeworld puts an interesting spin on things, making her “experiences” exclusively filtered through Ruby’s and Sapphire’s own).

Going from there, contrasting Garnet with Pearl is interesting because Garnet, to me, besides her efforts to be the dependable stoic leader of the Crystal Gems, has this whole “lover not a fighter” air about her. She fights when and because it’s necessary, because otherwise she quite literally wouldn’t get to exist - it’s not something she sees or paints as great and glorious and that she derives personal satisfaction or pride from, like Pearl often does. Rose’s Scabbard with their contrasting descriptions of the strawberry battlefield is a good in-show example of this, I think.

If you’re up for more Garnet meta, there’s some good stuff here, in particular a bit I really like featuring a nifty summary of her unique connections with each of the other CGs:

Garnet is willful. Garnet is protective. Garnet is loving. She is an Earthling like Amethyst; a fusion of love like Steven; a leader like Rose; a fighter like Pearl. Garnet is also an embodiment of balance: Ruby is fire, Sapphire is ice.

Finally, since this was supposed to be about writing, let me just grab my Garnet fics from my masterpost and put them here.

Hello, I would like to make a request. I've been seeing your posts pop up on my dash as I follow the sasusaku tag, but every time I've seen them they generally have nothing to do with sasusaku specifically, and only bash Naruhina/Hinata/the wedding. I don't care that you're an anti, and I'm wouldn't dream of dictating what you do with your own blog, but I would ask that you tag sasusaku only when your post mentions them specifically. Thanks for reading. :)

They are always involved if I put the tag dear. I don’t think I have to post everytime the fact that they are sabotating and omitting sasusaku scenes Just for hinata to be there and magically taking everyones screening time ?
You do get that even without me mentioning this every single time.
It’s being  implied that sasusaku is involved.

If my posts piss you that just block me. I don’t give a fuck

The only reason I made tumble is that I could be true on my feeling and opinions so I will nost stop just because someone else is against it. Have a nice day dear

one more time for the fellas in the back: the PV kids are their own characters with their own universe so not everything i use them in is the twin au

like i’m super glad people enjoy that au so much, but why do so many of you guys assume they’re never in their own universe when i draw them? i’ve said a million times that if something is twin au then i’ll tag it that way, and it’s not as if it’s all i ever draw, so c'mon give credit to the original PV universe where it’s due

I was watching AOS (because I’m home alone and why not) and in the first episode there’s all those avengers figurines and I just had a funny thought okay.

Picture this. Clint finds the shop which sells the figurines and picks up about five Hawkeye’s (because this is the first time he’s seen himself as a figurine and what the heck why not) and then he grabs god knows how many Black Widow’s and from that point on he keeps placing them around the Avengers tower.

Nat goes to the fridge and on top of her name tagged food there’s a tiny figurine of herself and the first time she see’s it she’s a little amused and confused, she asks who put it there but no one owns up to it, suspiciously Clint isn’t even around.

Then later she climbs into her bed and there’s another figurine with its head on her pillow that she almost sits on. She gives a frustrated sigh and tosses the figurine onto her bedside table before yelling at Clint. He manages to convince her he was innocent without cracking a smile, just about.

The following morning as Nat’s making coffee she finds another in her coffee mug and “Clint, where the hell are you getting these things?!”

My own Drarry headcanon is giving me too many feels

So Draco and Harry have been dancing around each other for months and finally Harry gets the courage to just ask Draco out to dinner. They have a great time, enjoying the food, company, and wine. They leave on foot and Draco asks Harry to take his hand. They stroll hand-in-hand for a few moments and Harry’s all confused. Why isn’t Draco Apparating them anywhere? Is he too drunk? Does Harry need to do it? When Harry asks as such, Draco gets that look on his face, the one he gave Harry all through school, of disdain, but there’s also something - kindness? - mixed in there. He finally answers Harry’s question: “No, Potter, you idiot, I just wanted to hold your hand. Okay?” Harry can’t stop smiling the rest of the walk home.

Over 200 words to use instead of ‘said’

There is nothing wrong with using the word said in written dialogue. Be careful not to treat the word said as a word to be avoided. Well written dialogue should never rely on tags such as the ones below, but should convey its own attitude. When using words instead of said, be sure you utilize them properly. For example, you cannot laugh and talk, or sneeze and talk at the same time. “That is so funny, laughed Bob,” should not be used. A person can laugh before or after they speak, but not while they speak. Think about how your character is going to speak and the emotion that they are experiencing. Think it out before you write it down. Let me give you some examples. The following sentence does not use the word said: “I hate you,” spat Bob in disgust. Now think about that sentence. Can a person spit in disgust and speak at the same time?

Watch what happens this time when I use the word said and describe Bob’s actions: “I hate you,” said Bob as he clenched his fists. His lips snarled with rage as he stormed out the room, vowing never to return.

Here is another example where the word said works just fine: “Do have some more gravy, Bob,” said Darla, spooning it out herself.

For dialogue to be effective it must appear to be realistic. The person reading your story must believe that your characters actually talk this way. You should use dialogue to reveal insights into characters, set the mood, and even to clarify plot points. I was once told that when writing dialogue, to think of it as action. Use dialogue to make something happen.

You may notice that some words on the list below cannot be used as replacements for said. These words have been added to assist you to enhance your dialogue and make it more descriptive. For example, the word “quietly” cannot be used instead of said, but it can enhance your dialogue. Ms. Maple covered her lips with her index finger until she had the attention of the entire class. “Let’s use our inside voices,” she said quietly.

Use the list below carefully and remember that there is nothing wrong with using the word said in dialogue.
