Thanks again for all your kind words and support, I am so incredibly humbled to be able to meet and work with the amazingly talented people on the Crewniverse!!! Even though I’m leaving tomorrow, I’m not sure everything has registered completely in my mind. Like, this is insane right?? This is insane???? I’m going to try to take pictures and stuff where allowed to keep you all updated when I get there!! Love you guys!!
Okay so I know I said I was going to have the network write this but I kinda stole it back because nobody was doing anything (myself included) and I liked the prompt too much so hERE WE ARE!

“You probably do not feel the same, but I simply cannot hold it in any longer. I like you, a lot. From your jet-black fringe to your blue-green eyes with their hint of yellow, to the black Converse on your feet, I admire every inch of you. Despite these wonderful physical features, it’s quite obvious to me that your most admirable trait is your heart. I can only hope this heart is big enough to accept me in it, despite the fact that I cannot yet reveal my identity. I forgive you for my cowardice, but I hope to one day remove the mask I have placed over myself through this note.
Your secret admirer.”
Phil read the note to Dan, who sat faking a curious look. “A secret admirer?”
“Yeah. I found it in my locker. I don’t know who could have left it there.”
“Maybe it’s not really for you? It could have been a mistake.”
“It can’t be. It’s got a detailed description of me, right down to the eyes. How did they even know that?”
“I don’t know…” Dan immediately regretted going into so much detail.
“Let’s review what we know. The admirer has been close enough to me to notice every shade of my eyes, and they know my locker number. It could be nearly anyone.”
Leaning up against the cafeteria wall, Dan let on naivety. “Anyone.”
“I’ll ask around. I wish our friends knew more girls…” He said, getting up and heading to another table.
Dan let out a sigh, now alone. He knew Phil was bisexual, but he wished he would open his mind a bit more. He would have been fine with dating a guy, but he for some reason couldn’t comprehend that one liked him. Society had molded him into such a closed-minded person at such a young age that he couldn’t break out of this box. Pulling out his notebook, he transferred all the information he just took in from Phil into a new note.
Your cheerful and loving nature continues to entrance me and inspire me to write to you. My trail of cowardice continues, as I shan’t reveal my identity yet. Alas, I will tell you a bit about myself. I am a freshman, the same as you, and I have eyes and hair of chestnut. Most importantly of all, perhaps, I may be closer to you than you think.” Phil looked up from the note he pulled from his locker. “I may be closer to you than you think. What could that mean?”
“Maybe they’re a friend?” Dan attempted to sound clueless.
“Oh, that can’t be. You’re my only good friend. Chestnut eyes and hair…” Phil stared into Dan’s chestnut eyes as he spoke. “Who do we know that has chestnut hair and eyes?”
“I only know myself.”
“I’ll look through last year’s yearbook and try to find some girls with chestnut hair and eyes. I’ll keep you updated!” Phil raced off to find a yearbook, leaving Dan shaking his head.
“So oblivious…” He smiled at the boy as he ran off down the hallway towards yet another wrong answer.
The next morning, Dan walked alongside Phil to his locker. “Nothing. I gave a handwriting test to every girl I could find, and none of them matched the notes. I’ve tried every girl in the freshman class. What else is there to do?” He threw open his locker to find another note, opening it up and reading it aloud.
“Today I shall give you a break from your constant attempts to reveal my identity. Instead, I shall remind you of why I am here in the first place. Philip, you are the sweetest, the most kindhearted boy I know. I have had my eye on you for a long time, but have just now gotten the courage to speak to you, even anonymously. When my identity is finally revealed, you will probably become annoyed with my lack of ability to simply speak up, and I apologize. I care too much for you to risk losing you over something as idiotic as a crush.
Until I write again,
Your secret admirer.”
Phil’s face showed pure confusion. “I care too much for you to risk losing you? I’m now confident I must know this girl well. I just can’t think of anyone it could possibly be.”
“I’m sure you’ll figure it out eventually. Or, maybe they won’t be discovered until they really want to. They’re doing a pretty good job of hiding it so far.”
“You’ve got that right.” Phil sighed as the bell rang for first period. “I’ll see you next period.” Dan headed off to his first class to restlessly wait until he would meet Phil again in his second.
Phil ran to his locker before second period to get his binder. Opening the creaky door, he found yet another note lying on top of his books. Grabbing his binder, he read it as he walked to second period.
Oh how oblivious you are. It’s quite adorable, in my opinion. However, your struggles sadden me as well, so I will help you. The reason you haven’t figured out my identity yet is simple: you’ve only searched 50% of the freshman class.”
Phil reached his English classroom and sat down in his desk beside Dan, setting the note on the desk. As he threw his things down, something dawned on Phil. His closed mind had screwed him over yet again. His admirer was correct; he had searched only half of the student population: the female half. Phil’s secret admirer was a boy.

Since I’ve yet to see a single post about it, here goes off what I know; A man named Steve Stephens is currently on the run in Cleveland after live streaming himself shooting and killing an elderly man in Cleveland (East 93rd Street, just south of I90) The video has since been removed and the Facebook deactivated. He claims to have killed 12-13 other people; Those are unverified and no additional victims have been found. This horrible person is apparently killing in the name of a “Joy Lane.” He is ON THE LOOSE so PLEASE if you live anywhere near the area STAY INSIDE. Stephens is 6 foot 1, weights about 240 pounds and has a full beard. At the time of the live shooting, he was wearing a dark striped polo shirt. Police say he is driving a white or cream colored SUV, reports have said it was a Ford. DO NOT APPROACH HIM, HE IS CONSIDERED ARMED AND DANGEROUS. IF YOU SEE HIM, REPORT IT IMMEDIATELY. PEOPLE HAVE REPORTED SEEING HIM IN AND AROUND CLEVELAND. AGAIN, STAY INSIDE AND DO NOT APPROACH HIM IF YOU SEE HIM, PLEASE. I’ll try and keep this updated as more things come in.
UPDATE: HIS VEHICLE IS A WHITE FORD FUSION, TEMP TAGS! E363630! STAY SAFE EVERYONE!
Hi Leslie! I'm a game design major and after seeing some of my art in class, a classmate of mine asked for me to draw him in some cartoon style. I told him that I don't do that kind of thing for free, so he agreed to pay me. I took the request, but after a bit, I realized that I know NOTHING about taking commissions. I don't know how much to charge, if I should send progress updates or anything really. So that brings me to ask: do you have any tips or insight on doing commissions? Thank you!
1.) Figuring how much to charge is p hard. I heard there are websites that help you do it. All I can say is make sure it’s never less than the minimum wage. Here in CA I think min wage is $10.50/hr. so I won’t go under that. Technically I’ll spend up to 2-3 hrs per icon so I should be charging up to $30 haha but ech. JUST YKNOW. Dont undercharge!
2.) Make them pay UPFRONT. Don’t work first and then have them pay! You can get scammed like that really how stupid!! If the person who is commissioning you doesnt want to pay upfront don’t take the commission. They can find someone else then.
OR you can have them pay half up front, do a sketch and send them that, and once they like the sketch they pay the other half and then you finish. But yeah I rather go with full payment up front cuz I refuse to work for free lmao.
3.) I, personally, love sending progress sketches! So that if they dont like something about the picture they can tell me as soon as possible! Nothing sucks more than finishing a long commission AND THEN they ask you to change something they dont like.
“No one could ever be that big of a jackass, Leslie!” UM YES THEY CAN haha trust me. So its best to send people multiple updates if you can afford to do so!
I like to send then a rough sketch WIP. If they like it I’ll do the lineart and send them that too. Once they approve the lineart I finish the coloring! The end!
4.) Communication is VERY important! Try to keep your commissioner updated often! If you dont talk to them for a while they’ll think you abandoned them and their commission. If you need a vacation or hiatus or whatever let them know!
5.) REQUIRE VISUAL REFERENCES. unless of course it’s a custom adoptable or something. Nothing sucks more when someone is like “can u draw my oc they have short brown hair and blue eyes thanks :)” LIKE NO THANKS
Not having visual references makes things incredibly hard! If they have no references then it’s considered a custom adoptable (you design a character for them) and that is usually more expensive than normal commissions! CUZ YOURE DESIGNING A CHARACTER FOR THEM WOWIE yeah
6.) Be upfront about how long it’ll take you to finish the commission! If you think it’ll take you a week tell em! A month? Be honest! Dont say youll have it done in 2 days when you know youll be extremely busy or whatever haha like I said, COMMUNICATION IS IMPORTANTE!
TREAT YOUR COMMISSIONER THE WAY YOU WOULD WANT TO BE TREATED IF YOU WERE IN THEIR SHOES!
7.) If the commissioner is rude, too impatient, overall an unpleasant person it’s okay to drop them. Give them a refund and let it go, you HAVE that right. Don’t put yourself in a position you dont want to be in. If they cant be professional you can leave. If you give them a full refund you owe them nothing more. Sometimes people are assholes so don’t work with them.
THATS ALL I CAN COME UP WITH RIGHT NOW. HOPE SOMETHING STICKS WITH YOU!! GOOD LUCK YOU’LL DO GREAT!!
Mystic Messenger Request: 707′s Route Day 8 Chatroom Translation: Puns
To answer your question directly, there was some
puns going on, even more than the English version! For those of you who
don’t remember the English version, it goes like,
just looks like a normal conversation where Zen just says a rhyming
cliche to cheer Yoosung up. However, on the 8th day of 707′s route in
the 8:00 chatroom part, the Korean version goes like this.
MC: 저 한 포기 예약^^
유성: 저는 김장 ‘포기’ 예약을 하고 싶네요…
유성: 언어유희겠죠. 연어 먹고 싶네요.
MC: I’ll reserve one batch of kimchi^^
Yoosung: I want to reserve for ‘give up on making kimchi’
ZEN: (what he meant to say) lol puns
(what he actually said) lol salmon joke (literally!!!)
Yoosung: You mean “puns.” Now I want to eat salmon.
here comes the explanation. The Korean word 포기 has two meanings. The
word that MC used is a measuring unit to count kimchi cabbages. The word
that Yoosung used means “to give up.” He just used the same word for a
different meaning, so he pretty much used a pun.
Now, what Zen
said would be really confusing for non-Koreans. The word 언어유희’s literal
meaning is “trying to make a joke out of words,” but he made a typo.
(연어유희) 연어 means salmon in Korean, so that made a completely different
meaning to the typo. Yoosung pretty much makes fun of Zen for making the
typo by saying he wants to eat salmon.
I hope this helped you with your question!! If you guys have any questions, feel free to send messages! Thank you for your request<3
PS. Heather is finally done with her finals..! Hooray! I’ll try to keep you guys updated as much as possible for now >_<
This blog is going to be on temporary hiatus. I feel really awful, but with all the drama going on, just logging onto tumblr makes me feel kind of sick. And because of that my creativity has taken a bit of a blow. I’m going to try and work on writing still, and I really hope that stepping away from this blog for a bit will help. And hopefully it won’t be too long, and I’ll be back soon. I really,t rely am sorry. I tired to stay positive, but I’m just so tired, of all of it.
Welcome back lovelies! Thank you so much for all the love so far on this fic!! Trying like hell to keep my tag list updated but if I miss you LET ME KNOW and I’ll add you!! Also, all you guys hitting up my ask box to chat about this thing? Ugh I love you so much!! My heart freaking swells every time someone wants to talk about this fic!
This chapter has some of my favorite moments in this fic, I’m sure you’ll be able to tell which ones they are :) still working the angst angle but it starts looking better as Tony and Bucky get closer!
“I’m sorry, Tony.” Bucky said quietly, flinching a little as Tony pulled a silver plate from his bicep. “I don’t think I’ve ever said it, and that’s not right.”
“For what?” Tony wasn’t really listening, concentrating on filing down the edges of the curved pieces so they wouldn’t rub together every time Bucky moved.
“For… your parents.”
Tony froze, his throat working erratically as he tried to figure out what to say. “Why- why the fuck are you bringing them up now?” He jerked out of his seat, standing up and crossing his arms. “What the fuck are you– why are you– fuck just stop.”
“I can’t imagine how difficult it is for you to be here with me.” Bucky said quietly. “I appreciate everything you are doing to help me with this–” he lifted his arm weakly. “this thing, but it can’t be easy for you. I just want you to know that I’m sorry, if I’ve never said it. I can say it was all that brain washing and my behavior was out of my control until I’m blue in the face, but it’s not going to change what you saw, or what happened.”
“It’s fine.” Tony replied, but Bucky shook his head and Tony groaned. “Damn it. Bucky, I came to terms with losing my parents along time ago. It wasn’t fun to see your face on that screen, but it's…. it’s not what keeps me up at night. I’ve dealt with it. Because you’re right, it was out of your control, and I can’t fault you for that forever.”
“I don’t expect you to forgive me, Tony.”
“Well, I tend to do things that are pretty unexpected.”
“Tony.” Bucky turned his hand over, waiting for Tony to take it. “Come on.” He urged and Tony reached out carefully, sliding their palms together. “I don’t expect your forgiveness. If things aren’t alright with us then that’s something we can work through, but don’t downplay whatever you are feeling just to keep the peace.” His fingers curled loosely around Tony’s. “I can take your anger and your hurt, Tony. I can take it all. You don’t have to keep it inside anymore.”
