Mirror For The Sun - Part 1

Masterlist  -  Series Masterlist  -  Part 2

Summary: Series: Nat tricks you into leading a road trip with Bucky, Sam and Steve. Her plot is partly to get the boys to travel for fun for once but mostly to get you and Bucky together. You and Bucky, who seemingly despise each other. Part: The set-up.

Warnings: swearing

Word Count: 1442

Author’s Note: Ok, lots of things:

  1. Aaaah I’m going to try something totally new and try a lot of 1st person Bucky POV in this series! This first part is just testing the waters a bit, feedback is much much appreciated.
  2. Changing my mind, this isn’t going to be a drabble series. I just couldn’t cut the parts up that short. It will be a short series though, 7 or 8 parts I think, definitely less than 10.
  3. I am currently road tripping myself and will make a Series Masterlist page once I get to my final destination tonight.
  4. I don’t have photoshop on this computer (waaah!) so if anyone wants to make me a banner for this series… I wouldn’t hate it. Otherwise I’ll try to piece one together with Gimp or some other free crap

Okay enough chatter!

“Alright, my turn,” Natasha smirks, taking her stance and firing an impeccably placed dart into the board. Damn it. Why did I agree to play her? She must play Clint all the time. She’s going to beat me.

“Best city for a night out.” She must have known Steve would give a less than satisfactory answer because she raises a finger towards him and specifies, “I mean, pick up a girl, one night stand, kind of night out.” I can’t help but snort thinking about Steve trying to talk himself into leaving after a one night stand. He’s so damn chivalrous.

“I don’t know what you’re laughing about, Buck,” Steve fires at me, “you’ve been on fewer dates than me in the last decade!”

That shut me up. He’s right, I haven’t really gotten back into the swing of it yet, haven’t really tried. I scowl at Steve before picking up my set of darts and flicking one into the target. “New York,” I answer, willfully ignoring Steve’s taunting.

Tomco Week: Day 1 & 2: Dancing and AU

Does it count if I put both days here due to not putting yesterday’s theme?

I told you, someone was going to join ♡Tomco week♡

Originally, I was going to do this speed drawing for this, but I had little time so no video T-T

Ok the story behind this drawing…I was working on day one theme, which was dancing….but then I decided to draw them as puppets(why…because I can! and nobody has done it yet. I called ‘dibs’ remember? X’D )and what would make people think of a puppet AU we needed one? X’D starco has one, why can’t this ship too??

this is my first time trying out my new color pencils, so I know I’m not a pro of this. (I have a set of 150 different colors, so it will take a while to get used to all the different varieties of colors to choose to) Felt like giving Tom a ponytail, because it looks nice and felt like it X’D (also somebody else already did it and it was pretty cool)

may end up redrawing this in the future

I may do some of the days, I can’t promise I will due all of them though I have a busy week

Art by me

prince Tom and Princess Marco belong to Disney

God bless you :3

(Don’t kill me other shippers, you know who I’m talking to XD )

SOLUTION - issues with theme problems, pop-ups, scripts etc.

okay - this  little solution is courtesy of the super eagle-eyed ku-tte (

well - it just so happens that ku-tte is a new blog… and now tumblr has taken to turning on SSL by default.  you’ve possibly never noticed it before - but it’s a switch in your settings that looks like this, and has this description…

‘if you’ve modified your theme it might cause problems.  Try it, and if it makes your tumblr look funny, just come back and disable it.’

well, thanks tumblr.  or maybe, y’know - don’t go ahead and pre-select options for me but… whatevs.  ANYWHOO.  this is the solution.

it’s very likely the problem isn’t with your code.  and that your theme-maker is scratching their head trying to solve a problem they can’t see.  if they paste their code into an old blog of theirs to test it, likely that little switch wouldn’t have been available/default, so they still won’t see it!!!  grr…

TURN OFF THE SWITCH - and all of those nifty little scripts and codes in your shiny theme will work just fine!

nb/ this is mainly an issue with NEW blogs where tumblr has changed the defaults in settings!

**THEME MAKERS** - if you’re using scripts, it might be useful to make a note that new blogs will need to switch off the SSL encryption!

lots of love from -

I postponed this set for a bit because I just couldn’t yesterday. And these recs aren’t technically new, but I’m not quite ready for a new set and I’ve been meaning to gather these up and organize them into better lists, so here’s the start of that. These are some of my STAR WARS comfort fics, the ones that soothe me or make me feel better or just engross me enough that it takes my mind off of things. These are some of ones that capture my imagination or I will come back and reread over and over again! I figure I’m probably not the only one who could really use some comfort right about now, so here have some of my favorites!  (Fic recs–mostly–every Wednesday.)

starbird by imaginarykat, obi-wan/anakin, 8.8k
   Anakin thinks he knows everything about Obi-Wan but doesn’t. Anakin thinks a lot of things, actually, and he’s wrong about most of them. Anakin’s whole world view is turned upside down. Obi-Wan is having the time of his life.
Some Things Are Certain by cupiscent, obi-wan/anakin, NSFW, 7.3k
   Detained far from where he should be by random chance, Obi-Wan meets an unusual slave.
Another Universe by skywalkersamidala, obi-wan/anakin/padme (obi-wan/anakin + anakin/padme + obi-wan/anakin/padme), NSFW, 12.1k
   Perhaps in another universe, the three of them would have been forever ripped from each other and from their children. But in this universe there was peace, and in this universe the Amidala-Skywalker-Kenobi family lived happily ever after.

   Het! Anakin helps Het! Obi-Wan during a moment of need, but it leads to unexpected complications.
First Watch by amarielah, obi-wan/anakin, NSFW, 1k

Pointless sex by themoosejthm, obi-wan/anakin/padme, NSFW, ~1k

On Whose Authority by Mithrigil, obi-wan/anakin, NSFW, 33.1k
   After seven years training as Qui-Gon’s Padawan, Anakin finally has questions that his Master can’t answer. A specialist in force-user initiation and the erotic mysteries might be just what Anakin needs–but Kenobi is almost too good at his job.
Fire and Ice by Yesac, obi-wan & anakin + padme & luke & leia & cast, 111.9k
   Anakin wins the duel on Mustafar, but doesn’t kill Obi-Wan. Along with Padme, Obi-Wan finds himself living in a chaotic world where the man he thought he knew has become the thing he swore to destroy. Can Anakin be turned back? If so, what then?

Seed by bell (bellaboo), obi-wan/anakin & anakin/padme & cast, NSFW, 34.5k wip

Fat Boy Keeper Tips: Naked Keeping

Once they hit 400 pounds or so, clothes are really difficult for fat boys. They’re much more comfortable kept naked at all times.

Often, they get a little restless with this new routine at first. After a few months he might ask you to give him something to wear to go outside.

Give your fat boy a set of his old clothes back. They’ll have gotten too tight by now. And he’ll soon realise he’s so out of shape that trying to squeeze himself into them is making him pant. He’ll understand he won’t be able to get very far from your front door if he goes out.

Your fat boy will settle down after this. He won’t ask to be allowed to wear clothes again.

  6. *bribing their accompanist with coffee in exchange for upping the tempo*

To the LGBT+ folks who didn't get to be themselves when they were young, who were denied their queer childhoods:

Make your own childhood for yourself, now. It’s okay to mourn the childhood you would have loved to have, that you never got. But there’s still so much out there for you even though you’re not as young as you used to be. 

Find a local or online queer community and make some new friends, even if just casual ones. Find new movies to watch and games to play, whatever feels exciting and affirming. If you’re trans and couldn’t engage in a sport or activity when you were a kid because of your assigned gender, go out and try it as your real self. Even set yourself some homework to study any part of queer history that you feel drawn to. Don’t forget to set aside even just a little free time to daydream, write, doodle, or make music.

Live your teen years and/or adulthood the way you wish you could have as a kid in any way you can 

My ideal Bestie

I need a friend,

Someone who isn’t afraid to try new things.
But she doesn’t play the wildcard to a fault.

Someone who is obsessed with beauty, and has a passion for filming or photography.
Or even just has a passion of her own, that brings them closer to her success story every day.

Someone who isn’t broke, so that I don’t end up paying for everything from their travel to their food (this happened once, I’m not a charity).
But she isn’t bouje either, so she doesn’t make my wallet cry every time we go out.

Someone who sets a high standard for relationships, romantic or not.

She values my opinion, but can make the right decision without my advice.

She understands the difference between a 10 minute phone call and a one hour phone call.

Someone who understands my family situation. But isn’t afraid to remind me that I’m my own person.

Someone that is and optimist, full of positivity. She doesn’t complain about the things she cannot change.
Most importantly, she doesn’t overthink things.

I need a friend that’s bisexual or bicurious, Who can come with me to femme bars or clubs.

Yet someone who has sugared before, that way should we choose to freestyle, we can do exactly that.

Is that too much to ask?
Can anyone relate?
Basically I need me. 😁
Now accepting applications 😉

I may be deleting my blog...

A couple of weeks ago I posted that my tumblr had gone crazy. Well today it’s even worse! I now have to search for my own damn site to get it to come up!
I’ll try tumblr help first, but I’m so frustrated, I can’t see my followers, can’t see whom I’m following, and can’t see my inbox.
So, I’ll make one more valiant effort tomorrow, but if unsuccessful, I’m closing out my account.
I will set up another site with the same name.
I’m still here, just look for a new look!

Brownies, Anyone?

I love spending time in the kitchen. I love to try new dinner recipes and discover some easy snacks to get me through the day. I especially love to bake. Does that make me an expert? Nope. I don’t have a lot of time to set aside and actually do elaborate recipes. I like to find easy recipes; the easier, the quicker, the better. Also, I can get lazy. Don’t judge me.

I’ve loved seeing Elizabeth share some yummy recipes with us (That carrot cupcake recipe?! YUM!)  and I’ve been meaning to try some of them out for a while. The problem is: Time. I have none, sadly. Also, sometimes I don’t have the necessary cooking/baking equipment.

But! I came across the perfect one recently and have been meaning to try it for a while. BIRD Bakery has some gluten-free brownies that look to die for and I couldn’t resist the chocolate cravings inside me. Best of all, it didn’t look too elaborate.

Some of you might have seen my live updates on how it was going, via those darn Instagram stories. Here’s the full showdown for you.

The recipe is just a quick Google search away and seems to be very popular. For me, I had come across it via Pinterest (and if you’re judging me, get a Pinterest and see what all the fuss is about, you’re welcome) and it had reminded me of what I’d been wanting to write about for this lovely blog. I got to it the very next day and was happy to see that my Pinterest high hadn’t conned me into thinking it was easier than it actually was. Note: This has happened before.

The gluten-free portion of the recipe isn’t really that important to me; BIRD Bakery uses a specific flour that’s locally sold, after many requests from customers for gluten-free choices, and I personally will eat everything except some seafood at this point. So I did tweak the recipe in order to use regular flour and they still turned out great. I did stick to everything else religiously, however, and felt pretty darn awesome doing so. I am a master whisker and my favorite part about anything cooking/baking related is mixing stuff together, and I was happy to see the results, even though my Instagram story said otherwise. It took a little more time than I had originally thought it would because of certain instructions that I’ll share in a second, but overall nothing too bad. Worth the struggle!

I wasn’t able to take any pictures of my personal achievement because there were children present and those brownies disappeared so quickly that I wondered if I’d dreamt the whole thing. I guess I’m a chocolate champ.

Anyway, here’s the recipe, for all those curious and wanting to try something new!

Servings: 12


Unsalted butter: 1¼ cups

Granulated white sugar: 1½ cups

Semi-sweet chocolate chips: 1⅔ cups

Almond flour: 2⅓ cups

Eggs: 8, yolk and white separated

Baking powder: 1¼ Tbsp.

Powdered sugar or chocolate ganache: for garnish

Sliced, blanched almond: 1, for garnish


Step 1: Preheat oven to 300° with rack in center position. Generously butter a 9x13 inch baking dish.

Step 2: In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and then remove from heat. In a large bowl, cream together butter and half of the sugar, slowly adding in the egg yolks. Once well incorporated, add flour and baking powder.

Step 3: Place remaining sugar and eggs in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and beat on medium speed—about 4 minutes—until stiff peaks form.

Step 4: Slowly add the melted chocolate to the large bowl. Fold in the egg-white mixture until all of the ingredients are well incorporated, then pour batter into pan.

Step 5: Bake for 60 minutes at 300°. Rotate halfway through, bringing temperature down to 275°. Bake until center is firm, being careful not to crisp the edges.

Step 6: Let cool slightly in pan, about 15 minutes. Lift brownies out of pan and let cool completely on a wire rack before cutting.

Step 7: Drizzle with chocolate ganache or dust with powdered sugar and garnish with one blanched, sliced almond.

(PS, I totally forgot to garnish with the almond but you better believe it was Powdered Sugar City up on those brownies)

Happy baking! 10/10 for this recipe, E. Would bake again. 

Best Advice for Aspiring Authors:

1. Keep expectations reasonable about how long it takes to publish, advances and marketing, etc.
2. Make goals that are in your control (ie how many words you write a day, not when you will be published).
3. Network—which means basically, make friends in the business.
4. Keep sending things out.
5. Write something new—don’t wait around once you’ve finished something and sent it out.
6. Try lots of genres to see what fits best with your unique style.
7. Set creative challenges for yourself throughout your career. Write the thing you think you can’t write.
8. Write what you love, not what you think will sell
9. Live life fully in the meantime.
10. Tell stories, don’t preach.


Auction #3

This pendant is one that turned out differently than I had planned.. I’m not sure what I think of it, but I figured that maybe some of you would like it. It was meant to be released as part of my winter collection tomorrow. On top is is a large aquamarine crystal from Brazil, and on the bottom is a quartz cluster. It’s set in oxidized copper. I was trying out a new patina to make it look frosty blue.. but it kind of didn’t work as I envisioned. It hangs on a 20″ chain. 

Starting Bid: $15 (shipping is free if you’re in the US)

Auction End time: 7:40 pm, Pacific time

Place your bids by replying to or reblogging this post. All the auctions will end starting 7:30 pm, Pacific time. I’ll message the winners right away and they must provide me with their emails. The payments are with paypal invoice. You don’t need a paypal account to pay, just a credit or debit card. The invoice gets sent to your email. You have 12 hours to pay before it gets offered to the next highest bidder. I know auctions are exciting, but PLEASE do not bid if you are not willing to or can’t pay. It’s not fair to me or the other bidders! Thank you.

it’s finally 2017 and i just wanna say a huge thanks to all of you, old and new followers!! I’m gonna set a personal goal that i’m going to get myself together when it comes to art and actually start drawing all the ideas that i have and not just procastinate. And i’m gonna try to get myself toa  better shape too.
I won’t promise cause i don’t know what’s gonna happen but i’m still going to try and it’s about time.
And despite that i’ve already managed to stab myself in the eye and set a tree on fire, i think it’s gonna be a good year! At least i hope and i’m gonna do what i can to make it so! Happy new year!!

I personally would have liked to have seen more of Ram’s grieving process before he started going out with April. I mean, I don’t mind if they had set out for them to be a couple from the beginning but if you’re going to write a character experiencing a major loss like Ram losing his girlfriend, don’t make them jump to someone new within the same month. It then comes off like they’re trying to mask their grief by immediately going to another person.

I thought they were dealing with Ram’s grieving and PTSD quite well until Co Owner of a Lonely Heart. I had hoped they were going to use the kiss in Nightvisiting to show how confused and lonely he maybe feels after what happened at Prom but…nope. It all just seems to have evaporated.

Did anyone else have a problem with this or is it just me? Because I haven’t seen it discussed much in the Class feed?

So about the character resolution of Twin Suns

It does closes Maul’s arc in a perfect note, one not of flash and flurry of fighting but a moment where Maul doesn’t get what he wants… but he hears what he needs. And in a few moments, he and Obi-Wan’s hopes coincide. For those who taken screenwriting want vs. need classes, that works. And it focuses on psychological conflict rather than the combat.

What didn’t work is that it didn’t add anything new for Ezra’s arc or do much for Ezra and his dynamic with Maul because there was a real set-up for their relationship this season, where Ezra plays along and trying to make sense of Maul’s ambitions. So it seems their last heated moment in “Vision and Voices” was a semblance of closure between Ezra and Maul. So we see Ezra tricked again and Kenobi having Ezra understand how that happened, but other than that, the payoff was predictable rather than poignant. It’s a want vs need arc, Ezra doesn’t get what he wants but he returns to what he needs, but it’s a plot we’ve seen already and it just replays rather than reinforce. 

For example, the moment where Ezra returns to home-base and goes through the motions and blah-blah “I got what I need here, family”… the animators should have muted the talking. We get it. What was on that script can be line-edited into a quiet scene. I recommend the writers pay as much directorial devotion to that scene with Ezra and his family as the scene where Obi-Wan watches Luke from afar. One is talkative and repeats already what we know, the other is a poignantly silent meditation, something we already know but something we invest in at the moment.

Good direction and writing should not be a ration reserved for the original Star Wars cast. The Ghost crew deserved their share. Despite returning to home-base to what he needs, the character of Ezra Bridger has come home empty-handed.

anonymous asked:

Lately I haven't had the motivation to do anything, especially drawing. It's not that I don't have any ideas, I just don't feel like drawing, or doing anything in general. My grades are even dropping and I'm not even improving at horseback riding, which is another huge hobby of mine. I feel very stuck. Is this normal?

That is normal, I think, yes. Everyone goes through a bit of a slump sometimes! Maybe just try to take a break from it all and try something new, to invigorate you? Don’t worry, when you get back to your hobbies, your skills will still be there - just let everything rest for a bit. If you push yourself when you don’t feel like it, it might make you feel discouraged or like you’re not as good at that skill set anymore. There’s no shame in taking a break :) 

Fuckwit on a Dragon Moment #5

I’m sort of almost a little drunk! Let’s laugh at the stupid guy!

I actually just read this one today, so it’s more or less fresh in my mind. It’s not the most comical moment there is, but I want to be sober before I try to compose that masterpiece.

Eragon has been summoned before Nasuada, leader of the Varden and therefore the person who most knows the political consequences of Eragon’s near-braindeadness.

Nasuada: Alright, the Dwarves are still electing their new king/queen. Seeing as how you’re a Dragon Rider, hero of the Varden and have been adopted into a Dwarf family, it makes literally all the sense if you’re the one who heads over there to try and protect our interests.

Eragon: Well, that’s fucking preposterous.

Nasuada: Okay, so you object. On what grounds?

Eragon: Well, without me you’ll all die. Like…within minutes of me leaving.

Nasuada: That didn’t bother you when you set off on your I-don’t-need-a-fucking-sword adventure at the start of this book. Or the part when you went AWOL for a whole week afterwards and we had to send one of your wranglers to find you. Also, you kicked Murtagh’s ass, like, yesterday, so he’s probably not going to try and attack us, like, now.

Eragon: …

Nasuada: Oh God, that’s exactly what you’d do, isn’t it?

Eragon: Me and Saphira aren’t leaving.

Nasuada: Oh, Saphira’s not leaving. Yeah, the spies will notice if there’s not a big-ass dragon bumming around.

Eragon: …

Nasuada: Are you okay?


Nasuada: Okay, I believe that I’m still absolutely your boss, so this is more or less semantics. And I’m sending an Urgal with you.

Eragon: Nasuada, Dwarves are all racists. Nobody except me accepts Urgals; it’s a bullshit idea. Nasuada, why do you never take anyone’s advice?

Nasuada: I take everyone’s advice, Eragon. Except yours. I mean…I still listen to your advice, because I need a fucking laugh every once in a while.

Eragon: This is fucking bullshit. I’m going to go and chill with the Elves.

Hundreds of miles away, Oromis’ scar burns.

@runawayforthesummer wanted something about Tomboy Eliza (completely ignoring the whole “give me a headcanon” part of the prompt, as per usual).

  • When Eliza was a kid, she would run away a lot. She’d decide that some hollow tree was her new house, and would make a little bed of leaves for herself. She’d gather acorns and berries, and then set the berries aside because she wasn’t quite sure if they were poisonous or not, then set the acorns aside because she wasn’t quite sure how you were supposed to eat them. She’d run around the forest for a bit, pretend to hunt and try to make a fishing pole from one of the threads from her skirt and a stick. Eventually, she’d get hungry, and make her way back to the house, pretending like she’d never left to soothe the sting of her failed adventure. 
  • As she got older, she was more and more restricted in what she could do. Which didn’t really help the urge to run away. Eventually, she realized that she could climb from her window to a tree, and then from that tree to the roof. She would take all her contraband up there- the slingshot that Philip had discarded like it was nothing, and that her mother had kept from her like it was poison, a deck of cards that she had been told would corrupt her morals, and a book of indigenous flora that had been deemed suitably benign. She’d practice her aim, play some solitaire, and look through all the plants she had seen firsthand in the forest when she was a kid.
  • One time, when she had been taking a walk with Alexander, early in their marriage, he had bragged about his marksmanship. He assured her that he could keep them perfectly safe, that if a mountain lion or bear appeared, he could hit it between the eyes with a pebble from twenty feet away. Eliza made duly impressed noises, then picked up a stone and promptly showed him up. Alex alternated between impressed and sulky for the rest of the day.
Being best friends with the marauders would include

• helping make the map

• being the first one to successfully take on an animagus form

Ooo, neat! I’m very curious how their jaws work, though - I remember the bunflower eating a strawberry and it doesn’t quite match up to this new development, at least imo?

My goal was to try and create something that matched that to a degree actually - they are so absurd it’s quite the engineering challenge, but the basic idea is still that their faces open like a peeled orange with each segment of their radially symmetrical face containing one eye, one ear and one jaw set.

I’ll probably iterate on this as I think of ways to make that work.

I might try something less hinge-like for the eyesocketjaw - maybe they don’t even have any facial bones, just a box for their brain with holes for nerves and their face is just a fuzzy octopus. Afterall, that was my solution for their teeth even in this version - their teeth are free floating, I left them out to avoid busy confusion.
