trying to find a way out

9

What strikes you the most about BS’s training is how INFINITELY AND HEARTWRENCHINGLY PATIENT MIN HYUK IS WITH HER - he never gets angry at her and completely swallows his own pride and ego because THIS IS ALL ABOUT HER. Whenever she fails, instead of yelling or lashing out at her and looking for flaws HE IS TRYING TO FIND DIFFERENT WAYS AND SOLUTIONS FOR HER SUCCEED, to the point where he lets himself be voluntarily thrown around and hurt. He never gets deterred by failures and keeps trying over and over again.

Unlike GD, Min Hyuk never thought BS to be weak but he DOES REALIZE HOW VULNERABLE SHE ACTUALLY IS UNDER HER TOUGH GIRL FACADE AND HE IS TRYING HIS DAMNEST NOT TO HURT HER. It the beginning, whenever BS messes up she becomes apprehensive and expects MH to scold her and yell at her, but he never does, instead HE OFFERS HER ADVICE AND ENCOURAGEMENT. He never makes her feel clumsy or stupid and in that way, he’s building her self-confidence and that’s a huge factor in gaining control.

And whenever she succeeds, at each her little victory, he gets giddy and excited as if she has just won the Olympics. And she too becomes so happy whenever he rewards her with praise. SHE IS HIS HERO AND HE IS HER BIGGEST FAN.

“Do you know how lucky you are missy?” Your husband Finn, very serious by the way, asked your infant daughter, their blue eyes matching each other.”You stole mommy’s boobs from daddy and you get to kiss them and touch them whenever you want” He playfully played with y/d/n nose, trying to get a giggle in return. You try to contain yourself from bursting into laughter as you enjoyed watching Finn bond with y/d/n.”When are you planning on giving them back to me missy?” Finn held y/d/n up, questioning her.”Help a daddy out baby girl.” Tilting his head onto his shoulder, he gave your daughter a pout.”As soon as you finish smack talking our daughter, who by the way doesn’t understand a word you are saying, you’ll find me in our bed, in lace, waiting for you to unwrap me.” You yell across the hall, making your way to your bedroom.

NASCAR anon here with another prompt, if I may. I need Military!Kara So like Kara's in the army and has her bomb dog kyrpto, she goes MIA. Kyrpto is sent home to cat and Carter. Carter is like super attached to this dog, and then they want to try and take him away. Cat won't allow that. Cue like 2 months of of fighting with lawyers and one day kyrpto is acting super weird, non stop barking. She lets him out and the barking stops. She looks out and it's Kara, cuddling him. Fluffy reunions

Hi NASCAR anon! I hope this will please you, I am not quite happy with it but I can’t seem to find another way around it so …
(I apologize for any mistake in there, it’s raw and I will probably have to submit it to a beta if I have to post it on AO3)

Here, have some angst with a happy ending!



“Mom, come on, we need to get going now!”


Carter Grant, already dressed up and closing his fancy winter coat up to his chin, is frowning at his mother and there is a disapproving scowl etched upon his childish features.

His mother, clad in a pair of casual but designer denim jeans and a floating, dark grey cashmere sweater, simply smiles sweetly at him before focusing back on her fashion dilemma. She’s standing in front of a closet, inside of which there are shelves and shelves full of shoes on display.

“Can’t you just like, grab one pair and then we can go?” Carter asks, already sounding defeated because he knows, better than anyone else, that Cat Grant will never do just that. The glare his mother throws at him from above her shoulder only confirms it.

“We are going to be late.” He sighs and then lets himself fall backward on the queen-sized mattress of his mother’s bed.

“Stop sighing and whining around, Sweetheart. We are not going to be late, we still have plenty of time. Her plane doesn’t land before another three hours and we do not need to wait in a crowded airport in the meantime.” His mother retorts with another meaningful glare but he sees sparkles of gold flicker in her green eyes, a tell-tale of impatience and anticipation.

“Fine. Fine.” He relents, trying his best not to sigh. He takes off his winter coat and then approaches the shoes closet, coming to a stop next to his mother.

He smiles at the memories flooding his mind when he considers the many many shelves of shoes. He can practically name the creator and the collection for each single pair, with an approximate date of creation or first exhibition.

“Need a hand mom?” He asks with a smile and she simply nods.

He notices she’s smiling too.

Could you please do some hc's about how the paladins are once they find out that their bf/gf feels unworthy of love?

Could you please do headcanons for how Lance and Keith react to learning that their s/o feels worthless and ugly and unlovable? Thank you!!

   - Another Anon


Shiro

  • He’s really surprised and he tries even harder to show how much he loves them.
  • He always assures them that they’re loved and they’re beautiful and perfect just the way they are.

Keith

  • He automatically assumes that the reason they feel that way is because he’s not showing them enough affection.
  • He tries not to make it obvious that he’s trying to communicate his feelings with them more through actions, but it’s pretty obvious.

Lance

  • He freaks out and he immediately wants to know why. He’ll find a way to counter any reason for them to feel negatively about themselves and make sure they know that he loves them more than anyone else.
  • He’s already affectionate enough with his s/o, but he does start to open up to them more in terms of his own self-doubt.

Hunk

  • He’s really sad that they feel that way, but he understands why they might look at themselves in such a way. He kinda becomes their positivity coach and reminds them of how great they are.
  • He’ll cuddle with them a lot more, and is more open with PDA than he was before, because he wants to show them he’s proud of them and that he wants to show off how much he loves them.

Pidge

  • They ask their s/o why they feel that way, because honestly, Pidge thinks they’re one of the most amazing people they’ve ever met.
  • They don’t change much about their behavior, but sometimes, they’ll think back to it and just turn to their s/o and say “Hey, you know I love you, right?”

Hey Leo! How would you react if one of your brothers went topside for like patrol or something and never came back. You don't have to answer this question I'd you don't want to

I would try and track them down with the GSP that Donnie installed onto our t-phones. If we couldn’t find them that way…I would go out and look for them until I got answers or found them during the search.

No turtle left behind.

i make fun of a lot of stuff online but always stuff i find fairly harmless and usually in a way where i try not to personally attack the artists and authors, the stuff that really annoys or offends me I leave unacknowledged outside of vague comments because i don’t like starting drama

but there are some people of moderate to actual fame who will look up cringeworthy stuff to use specifically out of context to make people uncomfortable. 

I’m talking one off jokes that use photos of cosplayers where the butt of the joke is the person in the photo who almost definitely doesn’t know they’re being mocked in a video and didn’t do anything to deserve it. 

i’m talking looking up fanfic and fanart and confronting the people who portray the characters in it, where the author or artist isn’t credited, get’s their work made fun of on television, and has that thing taken s far out of it’s original context and audience and presented to people they admire for the sake of embarrassing them

i’m talking mean tweets that are actually hyperbolic jokes where people’s real twitter handles are shown and they have to see the subject of their ridiculously stated affection get offended

in these situations yes people make stuff that’s low quality or silly or embarrassing in a second hand sort of way, and it’s out there for public consumption, but there’s this way of putting it on display with the purpose of tearing down the people who made it that leaves a bad taste in my mouth

i’m not even saying “be nice all the time even to bad quality stuff” i’m saying there are ways to poke fun that aren’t as likely to lead to vicious aggression aimed targeting of clueless people having fun

this sort of trend in late night talk shows is even more upsetting because of the clear power imbalance happening with the comedy

also stop humiliating people in front of their celebrity idols

Also, just some little speculation on why gems don’t need sleep.

Perhaps their gemstones don’t exaclty function like brains, and they supply them with energy, therefore they never get tired and/or don’t need to sleep, either that or they have another way to recollect their energy.

I haven’t seen them eat, either, apart from Amethyst, another thing which makes her the most “human” one out of them, they don’t sweat as well, which all leads to the conclusion that they don’t have bodily functions, or they do, but  they are way different from human bodily functions. I’m guessing the gemstone is what is controlling their body and is supplying them with needed energy which we humans get from eating/sleeping.

Holy shit what? How did Lion find where Steven lives?

Did it get attracted by the desert glass somehow?

He certainly isn’t there to see Steven, he’s trying to go inside, where the pillow is.

If Lion was indeed related to that desert i guess he’d want to get the desert glass back, for whatever reason.

And, if gems don’t need sleep, how is Amethyst sleeping? Is she just closing her eyes and snoring and pretending to be asleep? Or can gems simulate dreams and fall unconscious whenever they want?

Steven who exactly told you this is what best friends do? You really like jumping off high places and almost killing yourself don’t you.

I’ll die! EEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Fucking graceful

so the trip up here and dealing with traveling with a disability:

i left for the airport at 1:45 am because i didnt want to be late. i got to the airport around 2:30 by subway. i walked in an wandered around for a bit before deciding i needed help. autism unfortunately causes me to have a very hard time reading and understanding directions and list things like menus, so i decided i wasnt going to torture myself. i contacted someone. turns out disability doesnt open until 3 am but theres a nice lady willing to walk me to security. i get even more confused on the way there. o’hare is a big airport. also the lady asked how young i was and where my parents were. i basically had to convince her that i am 20 years old

i ultimately got to security, where the lady dropped me off and basically said that i would find someone somewhere up here who would help me. i stubbornly decide im going to try to do it by myself. this lasted about 15 minutes of me staring at signs and another 15 minutes of me waiting in a line for security until i was informed that the line i was in was for customer service and not security. i wanted to kick myself at this point because i hate that i cant follow simple signs (part of the reason i dont drive lol). i begrudgingly ask a lady for help, end up telling her that i have autism, and she immediately calls disability services. i decide this is for the best and sit down to wait in a chair with my luggage and wait for someone to help me. im also given a ticket to hold that says that i have a disability

5 minutes later someone shows up with a wheelchair. i do my best to convince them that i have an intellectual/mental disability that does not hinder my ability to walk. they insist and tell me this is standard operating procedure. having had experience with strict SOP, i get in the goddamn wheelchair. but oh, no. THIS WHEELCHAIR HAS A SEATBELT. i get very red in the face as the disability guy buckles me in, sets my bag on my lap, and wheels me off.

turns out, not only do i not understand where security is or how to get to it, but i also don’t understand security itself. we go past the entire line because ive been put in a fucking wheelchair and apparently that means that you dont have to wait (?)(i still dont understand how this works lol) and go into a special security line(? i think?) the disability services man then proceeds to walk me through the entirety of what to do step by step as im doing it again, because i can not figure out how to do it on my own. i get through it, though i get my shoulders patted down, and get back in my wheelchair.

disability man asks me if i need to be taken to my gate. i say yes, because up until now i have been able to figure exactly nothing out and i dont want to humiliate myself further by trying to do it, failing, and having to call services again. services takes me to my gate which is a very long ways away and tells me that there will be people to help me at dallas and san antonio because apparently they already contacted them.

i get dropped off and because i saw a mcdonalds on the way, i decide i want food. it’s 3:30 am at this point and i want chicken nuggets, but the workers say i can only have breakfast, so i get that instead. because i know the way back and it’s literally just down a long, wide hallway (the terminal????) i find my way back to my gate and read stuff online for awhile. i get called up to the service desk and get told that because i have a disability, i get to preboard, which is really cool because i didnt know if i was gonna be able to follow the boarding group instructions properly.

i sit down and play on my laptop for a while. i get called to preboard at around 4:45 am. im the first person on the plane, which is also very cool. also, i have a window seat. i tell the flight attendant that im autistic and need help finding my seat and she helps me and puts my luggage up for me (im too short to reach lol). the rest of the boarding goes well because i found out that the airline i fly has tablets on the seats in front of you and you can play free games, so i played bejewled until we started taxiing at 5:15 am.

take off and everything went well too. i got to watch some videos on the tablet and they had flight procedure videos on the tablet that they showed everyone at the start. it’s also really cool to watch your plane take off and not nearly as scary as it was when i was a kid.

once we were in the air, i played with the tablet some more and found out that it had an interactive map that showed you in real time where you were and i watched that for awhile. i tried looking out the window more, but it was cloudy, so i fell asleep instead.

dallas/fort worth was where my connection was and that was a little more difficult because ive never been there and texas is new to me. they tried to put me in another wheelchair, but i wanted to walk, and i found these two women who were my age who were going to the same san antonio flight and offered to let me walk with them. i did and found out that this airport has airport subways(?) that go to different terminals (very cool). this airport is also very big and has a mac (make-up) store in it. i wanted a smoothie but i was afraid if i got one i wouldnt be able to get back to my gate.

the airport people at this gate knew who i was, too, and told me i could preboard and everything. it was really hot here, too, and i was wearing a long sleeve jacket that i didnt want to take off. i played games on my phone for a while until they got me for preboarding and i was first on the plane again. they took my ticket and edited it though and gave me a window seat when i was supposed to originally have a middle seat in a different row. i liked that but i felt bad if someone had to switch seats with me. a flight attendent looked after me until boarding finished and i snapchatted my friends a lot. this flight went ok too even tho it was only 30 minutes and i fell asleep again

i got to san antonio and again turned down the wheelchair people. i knew for a fact that getting out of an airport is hugely easier than getting into one so i just asked around for directions until i found the car place. there was a cafeteria on the way and my boyfriend had taken a wrong turn and wasnt there yet, so i went there for a little bit. i had this chocolate thing called a truffle. also there were a lot of burger places (because texas?). then my bf got in and i asked around and found where he was

it was a great reunion but i was incredibly tired since it was about 10 am at this point and id been up for a very long time

Like honestly speaking as someone who comes from an Israeli/American Jewish family, we aren’t like holding out for Americans to start coming here in droves.

Obviously our doors are open for Jews who need to escape antisemitism, but we would much prefer antisemitism WASN’T an issue so you could like just stay in whatever country you want.

It’s really incredibly sad how many ways American Jews find to look down on Israeli Jews. 

Like I’m trying to not be super bitter here but…..ehh….it’s very frustrating. I see how American Jews view Israeli Jews as barbaric, loud, obnoxious, (which I personally believe has a strong tie to racism since most of the Jews here are Middle Eastern/North African).

We’re not perfect, but the way some American Jews talk you’d think we’re all fucking evil.

(please don’t reblog this, I’m not interested in getting hate from antizionists)

I lost my job recently and my depression has been messing with my head these days. Could I please get a star?

Losing your job is scary, especially in this current economic climate. My dad recently lost his job, so I empathize with you :<

Something better will come along, just keep applying to new places. Think about the kinds of activities you enjoy doing, and see if you can find anything related to those (for example, if you enjoy helping people and interacting with others maybe something in retail or reception would be good :>).

Try not to let your depression get to you, anon. Something better is coming your way, just keep putting yourself out there <3

Keep on shining!

I was having a meltdown on the bathroom floor yesterday morning and my boyfriend said 'look its not exactly easy for me either, how do you think it feels to fall in love with someone and find out they're a f-ing psycho', and i cant get any positive feelings back for him, hes apologized and is trying really hard but all i cant stop thinking about it and hes being kind to make up for it but i dont want kindness from him anymore it feels uncomfortable, he is the only person i have in my life

I don’t blame you for feeling that way. He used his love against you in an insult with an awful slur that upholds stigma against you. He shouldn’t been supporting you, not insulting you. I’m not surprised that affected your feelings this much

Stuck Together
(an alternate scene where Bogo wasn’t already there to free Nick and Judy from the vines)

The sudden jolt made Judy momentarily think she HAD hit the cement below her. But no, vines had wrapped around Nick and herself and saved them from falling to their deaths. After a moment of catching their breath as the adrenaline left their veins Nick released a small, slightly amused, slightly relieved chuckle.
Judy glanced at him, “Are you okay?”
“Nope.” Nick smiled, eyes forward. “But I’m alive and that’s all that matters.”
She rolled her eyes and looked around, trying to find a way out of these vines. “See anyway out?”
Nick looked at the vines, “I can’t bite my way out my mouth isn’t close enough.” His eyes then lit up like a light bulb, “I have a knife in my pocket! You can reach it!”
Judy’s brow furrowed, “Why do you have a knife?”
“It’s one of those do-dads that come with a can opener, now get it!”
With her tongue peeking out of the corner of her lip Judy moved her wrist this way and that, trying to find
his pocket.
Nick suddenly yelped, “In the pocket, IN THE POCKET!”
“I’m TRYING!” Judy hissed. “I can barely move!”
Nick moved his shoulders back and forth, making them start to swing. “What are you doing?” Judy asked, her ears flapping back and forth with the momentum.
“I’m trying to loosen the vines so I can move my arms.”
Judy tried to move her shoulders, noticing she had more slack than the fox but that was probably because of size rather than the fox’s swinging idea. She tried to pull her arm up, but it was squashed between her and the fox, she tried to push him back with her arm but again the fox yipped.
“Don’t dig your elbow into my ribs,” he glared.
Judy scowled, “I didn’t do it on purpose I was just-oh FORGET IT!”
She let her head roll back, ears pointing to the ground, “I called for back up, they should be here soon to get us out.”
Nick huffed but stilled his shoulders, eyes looking up at the canvas of trees above them.
“Thanks by the way.”
Judy blinked at the fox, “For what?”
“For saving me from a scary jaguar.”
She shrugged, “As I said, it’s what the ZPD do.”
He glanced at her, “I think a few of them would’ve put a different priority over a fox’s safety.”
Judy scoffed, “Please, any cop would do what I did.”
Nick shook his head softly, a small smile curling his lips as sirens wailed in the distance. “You’re something else, Fluff. You are something else.”

Notes for a young character designer

Dear E. 

Thanks for your email.

I don’t work at Cartoon Network any more. But I’m going to give you a very quick portfolio review in hopes that you find it helpful! Here are some things I noticed when looking at your stuff - lessons I learned from brilliant people while working on AT for two years: 

 1) AVOID SYMMETRY. Humans are organic, randomly shaped animals. Perfect symmetry rarely exists in nature and if it does, it’s conspicuous - it’s the exception rather than the rule. Find interesting ways to throw your characters off-balance. 

Don’t repeat objects in twos - (buttons or rips or whatever) - it feels prescribed - cluster things in threes or fives if necessary. 

 2) AVOID CONCAVITY - I don’t know what else to call this. But it’s those lines that go “in” rather than “out”. You are using inward sloping lines to describe many of your characters. As an exercise, try using outward, rounded, voluminous lines to draw EVERYTHING. Humans are fleshy lumps connected together by other fleshy lumps. Each mass is either in front of or behind other masses and as a designer, it’s your job to tell the animator where it is. As a designer, you are providing a technical blueprint for the location of masses. 

Only occasionally allow a concavity to connect two convexities. Look at the work of Robert Ryan Cory (spongebob), Tom Herpich (Adventure Time) or Phil Rynda (AT / Gravity Falls) - master character designers - for examples of this. If you need to, trace a couple of their drawings and you will see what I mean. 

 3) AVOID GRAPHIC DETAILS - Some shows use a graphic style; it’s very appealing and looks clever when done right. But in animation, everything needs to move in space - so if you use a graphic element - it needs to correspond with an actual 3D thing that can move. Therefore it is better to start with a voluminous style and then revert to graphic elements where appropriate. Art directors will look for this. Do not jump straight to graphic representation if you do not yet know what you are representing.

Look at the work of Tiffany Ford and Jasmin Lai for amazing examples of volume expressed graphically.

 4) STUDY JAMES MCMULLEN - To truly understand volume, and fully respect your subject, you should read very carefully High Focus Figure Drawing by James McMullen. Slow down and think about drawing “around” your subjects. It’s a truly meditative experience when you get there. Think about the weight and mass that your characters, props and effects are experiencing. Many students from SVA - Tomer Hanuka, Becky Cloonan, Rebecca Sugar, James Jean - studied under McMullen’s philosophy and you can see this common richness in their work. 

Jeffrey Smith, a top student of McMullen’s now teaches life drawing at Art Center. These are two of the best illustration schools in North America - anyone who is interested in drawing living things, should probably read his book. Also look at the work of Andy Ristaino or Danny Hynes - two other character designers’ whose work is seething with volume. 

I hope this is useful and I hope you have a wonderful career. 

Warmest,

Matt

I’m late to the Fantastic Beasts party but I arrived on time to crank out a comic for Valentine’s Day. Queenie drags Tina to a certain bakery to court a certain baker and give her sister a special surprise…

I kept thinking about the last shred of Credence escaping and materializing elsewhere in NY, without his memory and into the arms of people who love him and would never take advantage of him. I also really need for Tina to know that Credence is okay.

Special thanks to @exhibit-no-restraint for being the best cheerleader and a tolerant friend as I wailed about sad boys

The best way to flesh out your character is to test them. Put them in extreme situations and see what they’d do.

The three best tests are adversity, power and dilemma.

Put your character through a challenge. Something difficult that pushes them to their limits. Do they give up? Do they power through it? Do they blame themselves if they fail? Do they feel pride if they succeed?

Give your character power. Some sort of control or authority over the environment and/or people around them. Do they abuse it? Do they turn it down? Use it responsibly? Take it for granted?

And finally, put your character in front of a tough choice. A choice they have to make. What values would they prioritize? Would they try to find a way out of the choice, or make luck decide? Do they take responsibility for the choice they’ve made? What choice did they make?

The point is that when I see a sunset or a waterfall or something, for a split second it’s so great, because for a little bit I’m out of my brain, and it’s got nothing to do with me. I’m not trying to figure it out, you know what I mean? And I wonder if I can somehow find a way to maintain that mind stillness.

Link: My guardian the Great Deku Tree just died and I was blamed for it and exiled out of my village despite that I killed a giant one eyed spider ten times my size to try to save him and I just traveled across an entire country barefoot all by myself because I was told that I must find my way into Hyrule Castle so I can meet a Princess I’ve never heard of before so we can save the world!

Malon:

just once I’d like a character in a zombie fiction setting to acknowledge the dumb names people give the zombies

“We’ll have to find a way around. Too many <walkers/biters/infected/shufflers/stiffs/risen/geeks/deads/lurkers/crawlers/zeds/turned/gone/bloodies/bloats/etc> out there.”

“What?”

“Ya know. The monsters.”

“You mean the zombies?”

“Well yeah.”

“Then why the fuck didn’t you just call them zombies. Not everyone knows your goofy-ass nicknames. What if we were in a dangerous situation and I didn’t know what you were referring too? I could die because you’re trying to be cute about what the things are called.”

What to do when you get a bad grade

1. Don’t mope around and keep beating yourself up. That will only distract you from your studying, and stop you from doing your best in other subjects.

2. Remember a bad grade is only a bad grade. It doesn’t mean you’re worthless or have failed as a person.

3. Try and find a way to let your feelings out through some kind of physical activity. For example, through running, jogging, or going to the gym.

4. Aim to do better on the next test you have. There will still be other tests where you can get a higher mark. Maybe see it as a wake-up call, and change your study habits.

5. Try and figure out why you received the bad grade. Do you need to study more, or to learn some new techniques? Did you not fully understand the course material? Did you just have a bad day, or were you tired or feeling sick?

6. Get extra help from your teachers if you need it. Most of them are happy to answer students’ questions.

7. Be determined to keep going and to persevere. It’s easier to do well with a good attitude.
