Hello all and thank you for the warm welcome I have already received. This is my first time rping in the land of supernatural things. I am totally addicted to both TVD and TO. I havent watched TVD since halfway through season 7 but I will watch the rest eventually after starting back from the beginning. I’m Aly, age 23 and so happy to be here. despite me playing the evil guy, but I love all Mikaelsons so playing him will be tough. *how dare he try and kill elijah* bad Marcel…
Mostly just wanted to say thanks for sticking with me and my work. It really does mean a lot, and I don’t say it enough. A warm welcome to the new followers I’ve picked up (hi, how are you?), and I hope you enjoy your stay.
Escape Velocity 4 is done the drafting stage. I may have written it at work in a little notebook, so I have to type and edit it still, but that’ll be up soon ™. I plan to try and pump out some finished art before I return to more writing. I appreciate the patience (I still feel bad about the month long period between TD chapters… whoops).
It’s tricky to juggle working 7 days a week with all of the creative stuff I want to do. There never seems to be enough time. >.>
a contronym is a word which is the opposite of itself, having two meanings which defy each other, two reverse Janus faces.
for example, when you look at her she is both your whole world and why you are massively and horrifically empty. for example, kissing her on a sunday both feels like prayer and hellfire.
for example, you are your own contronym. someone who is solely intent on self-destructing while somehow also the only one working to save you. it is the mornings you can’t get up contrasted with the nights you can’t fall asleep. it is the way you feel everything at once like a meteor is reflecting off the solar panels of your bones while also feeling nothing at all. it’s that you want to be in love and you’re also not good enough. it’s that you’re terrified that tomorrow won’t come and you’re also terrified of what happens if it does.
for example. one shaking hand dusts to remove dirt, white gloves around a white throat, or one can dust dirt over a grave to replace it. a contronym. you are alive and yet completely unsure if this is living.
a very realistic approach!! i love the way she looks of into the distance. so mysterious! what do you see over there, friend? 8/10 only a little misshapen
wow!! she looks lovely!! beautiful feathers on her head!! she looks very warm and welcoming!! the one problem is her talons, which are just ovals, but i love that heart-shaped body, and i love her!! 9/10 would let her into my home
a sneaky girl. she looks like you just caught her in the act of doing something not good! and also, her body’s a tube! 5/10 leave her alone
does samsung know what owls are? has anyone ever shown samsung an owl? i wish samsung knew owls. 2/10 might be a penguin-dodo bird crossbreed
a small girl, but she’s got a lovely little branch to perch on!! and look at those beautiful tufts on her head!! 7/10 eyes are a little large, but i still love her
i like the art style here! and look at how she’s puffing her chest out so proudly! a confident girl! her eyes seem a little bit empty, though! 5/10 would still hug her
this poor girl. this poor poor girl. who did this to her? who made her so misshapen and weirdly shaded? 1/10 someone help her
you think you can do this to me? in my home? you think you can just fukcing walk in here and show me this and tell me it’s an owl? get the fuck out of here. get out of my home. fuck you. -20/10 out of my sight
just the head, but the head’s all we need! look at those beautiful eyes!! her feather tufts frame them perfectly and she looks ready to give you lots of love!! 10/10 i love her so very much
What you should say and how you should act depends on the context and who’re you’re with … but here are a few general ideas:
1. Smile – It’s welcoming, warm, and makes you seem more approachable.
2. Compliment people all the time. Most people feel awkward and ill at ease. So try and find something that is worth complimenting. You’ll help them to relax and to feel more confident (and they’ll also feel more positive about, and around, you).
3. Try and have a few stories up your sleeve that you’ve used before, and that make people laugh. This is really helpful when things go quiet, and the conversation dries up for a while.
4. Say nice things about people you both know. It makes you seem trustworthy, and a loyal friend.
5. Encourage people to talk about themselves by asking open questions – then probing a bit more. But stick to safe topics – and try to keep things light.
6. Make sure you mingle well and don’t talk for too long. This takes off the pressure when you don’t know others well. It also make you look more confident and sociable.
i’m going to be very honest for a short moment i thought tango was calling chowder “daddy” which is reasonable bc he looks like a warm and welcoming father figure gently patting his tadpole son on the back and congratulating him on the goal
