warm undertone

In Barcelona,

Yuuri is so beautiful. 

The night after the marketplace, he dozes at Victor’s side, and his chest is a tempered lull of waves, cresting and falling over and again with every breath. His eyelashes fan out over his cheeks, dark and rich, warm reddish undertones to the same inky black that makes up his brows, the fringe of his hair. There’s a gentle slope to Yuuri’s nose that is nothing like the angular lines of Victor’s own face—Victor traces down the bronzed bridge with the tip of his finger, feather-light. There’s a sunburst in his heart that’s ready to explode and erupt from behind his adoring eyes where they’re fixed on his love, his Yuuri.

Yuuri, asleep in the long lines of light cast through the hotel window. Yuuri, with his gold band hugging his finger, a fierce gleam that is undeniable, unmistakable. Victor puts their hands together to see those rings beside each other one more time, and once more again. He can’t get enough of it, that knowing.

Yuuri is mine. Yuuri wants me. Yuuri asked me to be his.

It’s more tempting than the sway of Yuuri’s hips from almost a year ago, more intoxicating than the dry fizz of remembered champagne. Victor cannot deny anything that Yuuri asks him, whether in drunken lisps and jumbled slurs, or in coy glances and rosy cheeks. 

Victor would do anything, oh, anything. 

Everything makes sense in retrospect. Victor is an idiot, or maybe they both are. 

Of course Yuuri doesn’t remember, of course, of course—

It doesn’t matter, Victor thinks, and it really doesn’t. Yuuri is his now, his to keep. And come better or worse, hell or high water, final or first, he will be Yuuri’s. 

But he wants to take it all back, all the angry little thoughts he never said aloud, all the petty, tiny hatreds that were so, so wrong to think that Yuuri could ever hurt him like that on purpose. Hesitant Yuuri. Loving Yuuri. Yuuri, softly slumbering beside him, radiating sleep heat, damp with drool at the corner of his lips.

Victor’s Yuuri.

And he is Yuuri’s Victor. Husband-to-be. Coach. Fiancé. Everything all spread out before him, balancing on a blade’s edge, weighing the worthiness of his love against Yuuri’s glass heart.

I want to be his. I want it more than anything. I’ll swear to never skate again if I can be his. I’ll do anything. Victor’s heart stutters as he scoots closer and settles comfortably against Yuuri’s body, momentarily content.

But in the end Yuuri’s glass heart shatters (as it always does) and Victor realizes that this does matter. Victor falls on his knees in the pieces and he bleeds, because he’d do anything, he said so. He picks up the shards one by one, cradles them in his own arms until he falls apart. Broken and shielding the fractured bits of Yuuri, Victor finally loses hold of himself. 

There are pieces that belong to Yuuri that lodge themselves in Victor’s skin. There are bits of Victor that make their way into the jumble. He does his best to give it all back with the words how much longer are you going to stay in warm-up mode? and he thinks then that they both finally get it and it starts to feel real.

They mix. They meld. What emerges from their clash of misunderstandings is neither Victor nor Yuuri, but a whole new pair of creatures glittering and shining under the lights.

They hold each other despite the boards between them, and in front of a million eyes and a thousand cameras, they both cry.

It’s the death of what they’ve known. But It’s the birth of something so much more important. 

They get engaged in Barcelona.

It’s the end of a year.

It’s the start of forever.

Additional details: ‘’pls let it be a cute delivery boy’’


It was just a joke. You weren’t thinking anything of it and just expected the good old same dude, who delivered you your pizza every time you ordered one. Just that middle aged man with apparently no wife or kids, greasy hair and a rude attitude. But shit, you never thought your wish would come true. You opened the door with lidded eyes, not putting effort in you looks today and rubbed your neck. But as soon as your eyes glided upwards to the delivery boy’s face, you slightly gasped. This was definitely not the person you expected to stand in front of you. The boy showed of small dimples with a smile.

‘’Hi,’’ he simply said and the smile he showed you reminded you of a bunny, although that was just a random thought popping up into your mind. And in that very moment, you just wished you had put on some decent clothes rather than just an oversized hoodie and sweatpants. He handed the box to you as you cleared your throat.

‘’Hey,’’ you slowly accepted the pizza box and couldn’t help but stare at him. His ruffled, brown hair was put under a cap which he just readjusted as he wore the usual delivery boy clothes; a bomber jacket in the colours of his company, the cap and some black ripped jeans with dirty sneakers.

An awkward silence fell upon you two, as you were still staring at him like a creep while he couldn’t help but smile. It was his first day at work and getting stared at by such a beautiful girl gave his ego some kind of boost already.

With your cheeks all red and warm, you realised you were supposed to give him the money and dug into the pocket of your sweatpants, trying to find some money. Then the pockets of your hoodie followed and your heart skipped a beat as you didn’t feel any money.

‘’Hold up,’’ you said and sprinted back into your home, trying to remember where you had some money left. You definitely weren’t prepared for this once again. While you let the delivery boy wait, you fished some money from the kitchen counter and dashed back to the front door. Trying to act all cool, you saw he had his phone pulled out and was scrolling through his feed.

A relieved sigh rolled over your lips as you came to stand in front of him again.

‘’S-Sorry,’’ you apologised, but you didn’t even know yourself why you said that. For taking so long? For staring so much a couple of moments ago?

‘’It’s okay,’’ he chuckled, putting his phone back and he reached out for your hand with the money, your hands slightly touching as he took the money. He hastily zipped the little fanny bag on his wait open and searched for some change to give to you. ‘’So, you asked for a cute delivery boy?’’

You let out a soft squeal, surprised by him knowing about your additional detail thingy, as you put your hands in front of your face shortly, before moving them to the side so they rested on your red cheeks. ‘’I-I don’t know why I did, and I didn’t e-expect them to seriously send one either.’’

“You think I’m cute?’’ he said with a cheeky undertone, his warm smile growing into a sly smirk as he leaned against the doorpost. He handed you some change and the receipt –although you never asked for it. Your hand left your cheek to get it.

“Eh, isn’t that the reason why they send you?” you asked him, tilting your head slightly. You gave him a puzzled look and put the money aside while holding on to the receipt. ‘’I-I mean, I don’t know…’’

The boy laughed and licked his lips wet, to which your stomach tightened a bit. ‘’I’m their only delivery boy, the other dude got tired of the job and quit.’’

A look of realisation flashed across your face as you remembered the old man telling you that the last time you ordered a pizza. Your mouth was agape by now and you became speechless.

‘’Cat got your tongue?’’ the boy chuckled as he pushed his body away from the doorpost. ‘’Anyways, I better go now. Deliver some more pizzas. I’ll see you around!’’

“Th-thanks!” you called out to him, watching him walk away. As he almost walked around the corridor, you quickly called out again: ‘’Wait! What do you mean by seeing me again?’’

But he was gone already, and a soft sigh left your mouth again; in all honesty you wished for him to stay longer and talk a bit more. He had this vibe which made him approachable and it was something you liked. Despite the fact he made your blush and stutter like crazy, he was still very patient and nice with you.

You looked down at your receipt and was about to crumple it into a small ball, but stopped midway your action when you saw ten digits written at the bottom of the paper.

‘’Text me ;)’’

this is gonna be a mini series, so i’ll also turn the rest of bangtan into some cute ass pizza delivery boys soon ;)

Give Your Self A  Makeover

 Finding Your New Look 

  • Assess what you want or think needs to change
  • Research different looks you would like to recreate/try 
  • Ask someone you really trust for honest feedback on what you plan to do 
  • Remember, not everyone is gonna agree with your change, but if they really care about you they’ll come around 


  • Keep your facial shape in consideration when look for a new hairstyle 
  • Show don’t tell - always go to the hairdresser with photos of what style you’re going for.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask your hairdresser for suggestions. (Hopefully) they know what’s best. 
  • Try hair extensions if you just want to go longer in an instant or a wig if you’re not ready for commitment 
  • Consider color. It can be a bold color, the tips of you hair, highlights, low lights, or a shade or two lighter 
  • Curl or straighten your hair. That may be all you need to change your look. 


  • Purge your closest and have no mercy. 
    • Model what’s in your closet and have friends help you decide what you should and shouldn’t keep
  • Shop at new places
  • Challenge yourself to go a week without wearing jeans.
  • Get fitted for a bra to make sure you’re wearing the correct size (they’re normally free)

You Bring Me Home- Part Two

“Dunno.  If I recall correctly, you’re a bit of a pest when you’re drunk.”

Emily’s mouth falls open at that. “I am NOT!”

“No no, you definitely are.  Can’t keep your hands to yourself, love.”  Of course he’s teasing her.  Sure there had been the few times in their relationship where they’d gotten drunk and handsy with one another, but it was never anything over the top and certainly never something they didn’t enjoy.  “What if you viscously attack me tonight with those lips of yours?  Hm?  How’s a man to handle that?”

Emily narrows her eyes at him and smirks.  “You wish I would.”

So about my rare-pair....

For @thinkoutsidethelovesquare

Peering into the spot-streaked (ugh, school bathrooms were the worst) mirror, Chloe frowned as she took stock of her mid-day makeup. Don’t ask her how she’d managed to leave her touch-up bag at home; She couldn’t begin to tell you why she’d suddenly decided to leave her fifth most prized possession sitting on her vanity, but at this point she would have honestly rather given up a kidney instead. 

At least that way she would have looked glamorous as she died a slow, organ-failure-related death, instead of going out cakey in a dimly lit public restroom.

 Sighing, she ran one manicured fingernail along the edge of her lips, hoping to salvage what was left of her icy pink lip stain, however it wasn’t looking promising. The color bunched unevenly to the small grooves of her lips, concentrated around the perimeter and nonexistent in the middle. And her foundation? In this August heat? 

Oh that was a goner. 

A splotchy, splotchy goner. 

Chloe held in a groan, balling up a handful of paper towels before thrusting it beneath the faucet. Leaning towards the mirror once more, she dabbed furiously at the worst of the damage, and had just began contemplating whether the eye shadow was worth saving or not when-

Skincolours in art

I have seen so much negativity and anger towards this issue in this site, and often from the mouths of people who don’t draw/paint themselves, so I decided it’s my time to step up and speak my mind as someone with a traditional art degree in their pocket.

The problem seems to be that many people don’t know that it’s perfectly natural for artists to fail a few times before getting the hang of colouring a new skintone. That lack of understanding, and the posts it brings with it, really, really bother me.

Now, I am not going to pretend whitewashing and & racist ideologies don’t excist in the art world. Of course they do, but this post isn’t about that. This is about colouring skintones, and the common mistakes that happen while doing it.

I am being serious - as a traditional art student, I got to study a lot of colour theory and was taught how to make skin colours pop, and you know what? It’s already very different to colour a warm undertoned and cool undertoned skin of same darkness/lightness level. Not to mention trying a totally new darkness/lightness level of a skin - it can be very tricky to figure out on your own! So if someone is colouring, for example, yellow toned skin for the first time they might easily make it too yellow. It happens. It doesn’t necessarily mean the artist was trying to be racist.

“But everyone knows how to paint pale skin, so it’s racist!” - no, they don’t, and no, it’s not that simple. I was in a portrait painting class, and dear god half of us managed to make our portraits too green while painting a light skinned model. Too green, you ask? That’s because in portrait painting, you often use contrasting colour as the undertone of your canvas to make your colours look more vibrant. In this case, green to contrast reddish skin tones. Not everyone used enough warmth in their work to tint off the green, so some sickly looking paintings were made. It was rather unfortunate, but also natural part of the learning process.

The assumption of artists having to be able to colour all skintones because they have mastered a few is ridiculous. “It’s not that different, why do white people pretend thet can’t colour dark skin” - it is very different, actually, especially if we go dark enough. At some point, it becomes more about noting the colours at the highlights of the skin (very dark skins where the undertone is most prominently seen in these areas) instead of paying attention to the colours of shadows on someone’s face (very light skins). Everyone’s personal undertone also plays part on what colour of shadows you should use, and the lightness/darkeness of their skin adds another layer of thinking into the mix of what colours to use. For example, light pink might work as a blush on pale skin, but looks off in warm brown skins, and green veins look good on yellow toned skin, but kind of off in red toned skins. This balance of colours plays part in everything.

Not to mention people’s personal colouring styles - for those who don’t aim for natural tones, it’s a whole another process to think how they can express different skin colous in, for example, pastel colours. Also in cartoon-y styles, you often have to simplify skintones. I have seen several artists getting hate for their unconventional colouring styles.

It’s important to give artists, especially more inexperienced ones, the room to learn, grow and make mistakes. You can (kindly) give tips, but smashing someone down for a mistake & calling them racist for a skin colouring mistake they did because they haven’t yet mastered that tone is more likely to scare them off from attempting to be more diverse than it is to make them magically know how to colour that skintone.

Mistakes, especially ones made while learning, are okay. Don’t start your witchhunt the first mistake someone makes. Educate. Then, if someone actually doesn’t want to learn and and means what they do a bad way, call them out. But give artist the right for mistakes.

And please, just be kind.

shittyharper  asked:

on a real, can y'all please describe how joji looks? i don't know why i haven't asked someone this already. boi needs to deadass let me feel his face or some shit. x

Oh um, okay, I’m not sure I’m the best at describing physical features but i’ll try my hardest. Well first off he has very soft looking hair, very fluffy, and it’s straight. Usually he cuts it short with longer pieces in the front where normal people would have bangs but his hair tends to stick up until it grows out. Clearly he wants bangs but he can’t have them until his hair grows out enough to stop defying gravity. 

His eyes are a really warm shade of brown, i literally think of sitting under a tree and sunlight falling across my skin when I look at his eyes. He has eye bags for days too, i know someone asked him about it before and he said they’re natural. When he smiles, his eyes close a little and you can see the bags, they make his eyes look a lil puffy like he’s high or really sleepy. He also has a crease over his eye but it’s not very noticeable.

I’d say his nose is big, not very wide but big and the tip is hooked down. Full disclosure, for a while i thought he’d broken his nose and that’s why the tip was kinda flat and down turned but as far as I know, that’s just how it is. I think it might be cause the only person i know whose nose resembles his had theirs broken. 

His lips are hmm, not exactly thin but they’re far from full. I’d say medium? And his top lip is slightly off balance with the bottom, it’s a bit fuller. His lips are very pink too, at all times, I’m actually kinda jealous of that. Oh but then he smiles and I’m back to being slightly in love with him. His smile is so nice, he has laugh lines when he smiles and his teeth are very straight. Of course he had braces so now they’re straight but that’s beside the point.  I love his smile. 

His skin tone is warm, warm undertones? I dunno know man, I’m not make up artists but it’s all I know. The colour is a very light shade of brown, not exactly white but closer to maybe peach? I’m bad at skin colours. 

He’s got some really nice arms though, the boy works out, and his fingers are very long. I just wanted to say that, he’s got some nice nails too, could do with some proper shaping but that’s up to him. He also tends to grow this kinda scruff? Not a full beard, I don’t think he can but when it’s short and closer to five o’clock shadow it’s nice. When it gets longer though, not so much, he’s one of those guys who should go clean shaven or very slight beard at all times. 

Oh, his chest is very, very smooth. No hair to be found except at his stomach in a happy trail down to his dick. I have no idea why his chest is the most hairless part of him but that’s just how it is I guess. His thighs and legs are very hairy, and we love him for it. 

Hmm, I think that’s as much as I look at; oh his ass is nice, he got one and it’s nice. I’d say one of those asses with a layer of fat on it but you just know if you grabbed it you’d feel the muscle underneath? Also his eyebrows are thick and I doubt he does anything with them. 

Min Yoongi’s natural skin tone Masterpost - Dark & Wild era

Cuz apparently this is so very much needed, since this fandom has made the huge misunderstanding of taking his stage name in the most literal way possible.

His stage name is SUGA, simply because he’s the palest member in the group / compared to the other members.  (Yes, we know that the other origin of his stage name means Shooting Guard. Both the pale skin origin and the basketball origin were both used by him.)

He is NOT the equivalent color of industrialized sugar aka white.

He is pale, but his undertone is warm (you can learn more about what this means here).

This masterpost is going to be split throughout the eras because it’s way too much for one post alone.

*Note: for those who haven’t realized it by now, this masterpost contains only unwhitewashed/unedited/untouched pictures and prints of videos.

ps: please forgive me if some of the pictures don’t correspond to the right era, I tried my best.

the-real-sans-the-skeleton  asked:

I had a really hard day today (got harassed at school and then got yelled at) and I was wondering if you would do a request The request is (this might be long sorry) reader find out they are pregnant with Gabe's kid and then before they can tell Gabe the news he is presumed dead and so the reader goes on with their life and has the child then Gabe comes back as reaper and goes to find the reader and then funds he has a family now sorry if it was too long sorry!

((I’m so so sorry you had a hard day hon, those people that yelled at you suck. I hope that things get better!))

“Estoy em-bara-za-da”, you practiced, saying each syllable carefully before licking your lips and nodding. You were playing a short recording over and over, making sure you were saying it right and not butchering the Spanish phrase. “Estoy embara-zada…Estoy embarazada! There we go, I got it!”

You spun in a circle, smoothing your hands down your ‘bloated’ belly, giggling softly and happily. You were pregnant. If you hadn’t taken five pee tests and one blood test, you wouldn’t be sure if you actually believed that it was true but it was. You and Gabriel had talked in passing about having a family; of running away from Overwatch and Blackwatch, finding a home and starting over from scratch. New identities, plenty of money and enough human comforts that you’d never have to look back. You’d never be the ‘Jones’, with their white picket fences and ‘perfect American dream’, but you could be happy and free from all the bureaucratic bullshit that was intrinsically tied up with Overwatch and Blackwatch.

Especially now since things were looking so bad. Between the sensitive leaked information about Overwatch, deaths of prominent Overwatch agents, the reveal of the existence of Blackwatch and the witch hunt the world was on, it was time to get the hell out of dodge. Jesse had left first with Gabriel’s blessing, but his protege couldn’t convince the Blackwatch leader to leave himself. He had wiped records of your existence and moved you to Aix-les-Bains, France; explained that it was safer to be out of Switzerland for the time being, the hour commute back and forth more than worth it to keep you directly out of harm’s way.  What that harm was, he hadn’t revealed to you.

‘It’s better you don’t know, amorcita. Keeps your hands clean of this bullshit.’

Still, maybe with this news he could finally go through with those fanciful ideas of yours. You jumped as you heard you phone begin to buzz, drawing you out of your inner mind and back into the real world. Pushing a hand through your curls, your brow furrowed as you listened to your phone’s nonstop buzzing from across the room, grunting agitatedly. Crossing the room, you grabbed the device and pressed a button to illuminate the screen. Your blood froze like ice in your veins as you read the emergency notifications that were filling up your screen.

‘Explosion at Overwatch Geneva Headquarters’

‘Gigantic Explosion Rocks Overwatch HQ, Unknown Numbers Dead or Injured’

‘Unknown Numbers Hurt and Injured after Explosion Hits Geneva’

“Oh god…”

It had taken three more months until Gabriel’s status was changed from missing to dead, Reinhardt bringing you the personal effects that been found in the debris. His hat, a tungsten ring you had given him and his dog tags; all burnt but still there. Your fingers traced over the letters of his name, a soft sob leaving your lips as you pulled the objects tight against your chest. He may have left the physical plane, but Gabriel hadn’t left you alone. Your hand smoothed down your round stomach, looking up at Reinhardt with a watery smile.

“Thank you…”

“Isabella”, you warned, the bright eyed two year old looking back at you. She had managed to climb halfway up onto the the kitchen table, you rushing and scooping the adventurous little girl into your arms. She looked so much like her father, you joked that she was his little clone, only picking up traces of your features. Big brown eyes framed with thick black lashes, soft copper skin covered in tiny freckles and a head full of thick, wild black curls that framed her chubby little cheeks. “Princesita, how many times must mama ask you not to climb up on the table, hm? You’re going to end up just like those little monkey and bump your head!”

You began to tickle the little girl, spinning her in your arms and smiling at her screaming laugh, peppering warnings and kisses to her head and forehead. You had tried to keep her father’s memory alive; teaching Isabella Spanish and using the affectionate terms you could imagine Gabriel using, showing her vids and pictures of her father and his friends to prove that he was a hero that had laid down his life to protect them. Isabella knew his face, would call him daddy and talk to his framed picture in those short toddler sentences. It was hard, admittedly, to raise her all on your own but you loved your daughter and you know that Gabriel would be happy to know how you both were living.  

“Mama”, Isabella said through giggles, her own chubby little fingers stilling at trying to tickle you. She tilted her body backwards as she looked at the door frame that led to the front door, making you grunt as you took a half step forward to catch her. You shifted your daughter to your hip, the little girl grabbing onto your shirt to steady herself before pointing. “The doorbell mama!”

“Good ears mi amorcita”, you complimented, gently ruffling the child’s hair and bouncing her on your hip with each step. You were expecting a few packages for Isabella’s owl-themed birthday; a colorful owl plush, a dress, umbrella and rainboot set with the same type of owl and a new book featuring the same, sweet cartoon-y creature. The doorbell rang once more making you scoff in annoyance, Isabella yelling again to notify you that the doorbell was in fact being rang. “Thank you little one. I am coming!”

You tried to keep your voice singsong-y, a small tick of annoyance pulling at your neutral smile. Rude ass postman rushing you when they knew damn well you had a child and they didn’t have that many houses to go to in that area. Shifting Isabella on your hip, you put a sweet yet annoyed smile on your lips, undoing the locks before throwing the door open.

“Sorry for ma–”

You jumped startled, arms wrapping tightly around your daughter as you caught sight of the person on the other side of your screen door. It was a tall man that was dressed in all black; black cargo pants, a black hoodie and black boots. Something tickled in the back of your head, there was something…familiar about that silhouette.


Your eyes jumped back to your daughter, the child less scared than you were but more curious as to why you were squeezing her so tightly. Shooting a sweet smile down at her, you took a small half step back, prepared to hit the lockdown button near the door.

“I don’t know who you are but you should go”, you said, voice steely and serious, eyes darting between your daughter, the button and the stranger. “Now.”

The stranger chuckled softly, the sound low and gritty and solemn but familiar, your stomach flipping nervously. Your hands hovered over the button but you still couldn’t find it in yourself to press it just yet as the stranger began to turn, pushing the hood they had up off of their head.

“Cautious as ever mi reina”, the man said before locking eyes with you, a melancholic smile playing on those ever familiar lips. Gabriel Reyes stood in front of you, scarred and pale but alive and you froze. It felt like all the air had been knocked out of your lungs as you stared your dead lover in the face, your heart thundering in your chest.

“Gabby”, you breathed out weakly, tears immediately rolling down your cheeks. Your mind couldn’t process this. Gabriel shouldn’t be here, they hadn’t found a body but there is no way that he could be here…and alive. You hiccuped, adjusting Isabella on your hip again before wiping hardly at your face. “H-how?”

“Let me come in cariño”, Gabriel said, his hand lightly pressing against the glass of the screen. Now that he was closer, your eyes studied what you could of his facial features. His large brown eyes were now the color of fresh blood. His warm undertone was now gray, making his brown skin appear duller. There scars you had never seen before on your face, but you knew somewhere in your heart of hearts that this was the love of your life. His eyes kept darting between you and Isabella, his expression communicating unbelievable longing.  “I will explain everything, just please let me in.”

“Papa! Mama that’s papa? Mama look! That’s papa?”

“Yes baby”, you said softly, voice cracking as you tried to keep it together for your little girl. “That is your daddy…should we let him in?”


Your hands shook as you unlocked the door, your senses suddenly filled by the scent of his cologne and pomade, his arms wrapping tight around you as he pushed through the door. You unconsciously squeezed your arm tight around him, the feeling of completeness filling your body. He broke away from the hug, a real smile on his lips as he looked between you and Isabella once more before bending slightly so that he could be eye to eye with the two year old. The little girl smiled wide at him, her hand reaching out to actually touch his face, bursting into a fit of giggles when Gabriel kissed her palms.

“Hi there ángel”, he said, his voice unbelievably soft as he stood up to full height.

“That’s not my name”, the toddler corrected, brow furrowing at the ‘name’ her father had imposed on her. “My name is Isa-bella Ale-jan-dra Reyes!”

She slowed down on her own syllables to make sure she said each of them correctly before grinning wide at the man, her father. Gabe’s eyes lifted to look at you, shocked that you had given her his last name before looking back to the little girl, pure love and adoration in his eyes.

“Hey there Isabella…”

purpsart  asked:

I am really with struck how neat and well coloured your works are, the colour schemes work so well everytime. From what I've seen from your progess gif , you put some kind of orange overlay on your (traditional)outlines to give the picture this warm undertone, so I was wondering, what kind of settings do you use for this effect?

I use a photoshop adjustment layer called Gradient Map - and usually give it a Sepia gradient - I’ll overlay it ontop of a greyscale drawing and then set the whole thing to multiply over my colors. It helps to harmonize the colors.

Min Yoongi’s natural skin tone Masterpost - Predebut

Cuz apparently this is so very much needed, since this fandom has made the huge misunderstanding of taking his stage name in the most literal way possible. 

His stage name is SUGA, simply because he’s the palest member in the group / compared to the other members. (Yes, we know that the other origin of his stage name means Shooting Guard. Both the pale skin origin and the basketball origin were both used by him.) 

He is NOT the equivalent color of industrialized sugar aka white.

He is pale, but his undertone is warm (you can learn more about what this means here).

This masterpost is going to be split throughout the eras because it’s way too much for one post alone.

*Note: for those who haven’t realized it by now, this masterpost contains only unwhitewashed/unedited/untouched pictures and prints of videos.

ps: please forgive me if some of the pictures don’t correspond to the right era, I tried my best.

Love was never supposed to hurt this much

Plot - Loving him was never easy, but no one said it was going to be. Love could conquer anything. Right?

Words - 5,400

Pairing - Bucky X Reader

Warnings - ANGST! Major character death. The smallest amount of fluff in the world.

A/N - I have already posted this once before so if you think you’ve read it then you probably have. I deleted my secondary blog with the same name so I could change it to my primary. Anyway, I’m sorry for making you all suffer again. The angst is real.

Love. It had always been a foreign concept to you, but god the moment you laid eyes on him you knew – you damn well knew he was the one.

Even from birth you never knew the meaning of love. Your parents? The people who are supposed to love you unconditionally, it seemed they didn’t understand the meaning of it either – or maybe it was because your dad left so long ago, and it spiralled your mother into depression, pushing her towards alcohol. Then years later, when your mind was ridden with self-hatred, and depression sank its claws into your flesh, he came along.

The moment your eyes fell on him the breath was stolen from your lungs, yet you felt like you could breathe all-over again. Everything about him was beautiful – from the way his brunette hair fell into his eyes – and on the topic of his eyes, oh they were the most beautiful things you had ever seen in your life. They were bright blue, like the sky on a summers night – yet they were so dark and steely that you found yourself drowning in their depths, they were breath-taking on a whole other level. Then there was the way that his expanse of muscle rippled underneath his clothes and a smile which lit up your entire world and gave you the light you needed to guide you from the tunnel of self-hatred. He was perfect in every way possible.

Brown is not boring.

Brown skin can be ranges of light tan to dark as night. It catches the light and the person glows. With red undertones it’s warm and inviting. With blue undertones it’s visually striking and gorgeous. With yellow undertones it’s visions of home and friendliness.

Brown eyes can be deep, piercing, stunning, and immensely different from one another.

Brown hair can catch the light and show you a world of colors. Blonde you didn’t know existed. Red that you inherited. White from experience and a lighter brown as a natural highlight.

Brown is the color of the earth we dig up to plant something green.

Brown is the color of comfort and peace, be it food, a blanket, your favorite sweater, or autumn.

Brown is the wake up you need or the relaxer at the end of the day.

Brown protects the trees around you so you can breathe.

It’s sand on the beach. It’s the bottom of a lake. Its plants and animals and and leaves from a few years ago. It’s trails in the woods and rocks near waterfalls.

It’s moons and planets far far away that people call beautiful. So why wouldn’t brown be as amazing as everything that is brown?

Brown is a boring WORD. But brown is by no means a boring color.

Severus Snape Headcanons.

- He has dimples.

- His teeth are crooked and yellowed but the rare time he smiles, you know he has a really nice smile. Not too much gums, a nice curve to his lips.

- His lips are overall thin but his lower lip is plumper.

- He has long eye lashes.

- My head canon of him is descendant of Spaniards, which in turn have ancestry from the Middle East. I imagine he is super pale but with a yellowish/warm undertone.

- He is bisexual.

- He has awesome eyebrows. Bushy but sharp and formed for maximum sarcastic/snarky use.

- He looks older for his age, but his eyes still showcase how young he actually was. He has a few more lines across his forehead and his smile lines because of his scowls and his frowns, but he doesn’t have crow’s feet because he never smiled much.

- He likes classical and rock music.

- He denies liking beer, as denial of his lower working class upbringing.

- He always wanted to be poised, elegant and cool, but he knows he isn’t, even after he does something petty or vindictive. He knows he is not a nice person, but he prides himself in his self-awareness.

- Around the 1980′s, right after Voldemort “fell”, he put on some weight, at least enough to marvel at his soft tummy. Not pulled tight over his bones anymore.

- He secretly liked his wiry arms from Potion making.

- He took a lot of self-made potions to care for his gastritis, result of stress, his lack of eating, etc.

- He knows it was his Wizarding bloodline that kept his hair abundant, instead of becoming bald from the emotional, physical and mental pressure. Especially because he never really groomed himself, nor did he care to, much.
