things maybe those other novelization posts missed
there’s been a couple of posts about the novelization highlights going around but whatever the world needs my thoughts right????
really just a rehash of my livetweeting sometimes direct copy and paste but whatever. LMAO THIS IS LIKE 5 PAGES LONG WELP SORRY FRIENDS.
Even the excerpts from the rogue one novelization have not prepared me for the utter DRAMA that is cassian andor in this book omg
everything about bodhi rook made me cry. HE DOUBTS HIMSELF. THE ONLY THING HE’S SURE OF IS THAT HE’S NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
WHEN JYN IS AT THE LABOR CAMP JUST SO WE’RE ALL CLEAR SHE’D “RUN OUT OF FRIENDS.” SHE WAS WAITING TO DIE. HER CELLMATE HAD EVEN SAID SHE WAS GOING TO KILL HER AND JYN WAS LIKE “eh, the fight will at least be entertaining. I’m pretty bored so”
Hi. Just wanted to let you know that after Cassian said like 10 words to Jyn, she was imagining them on a date.
Jyn also is careful to try and shield cassian from a blast in Jedha city like you know just for safety and stuff. And standing close to each other. SAFETY THO.
Cassian: I’m cold, I bet Jyn’s cold. I’m tired, she’s probably exhausted. She beat the shit out of those guys, IS SHE CONCUSSED? CHILL, BUD
the. entire. time.
cassian really cannot stop thinking about jyn and how she’s fucking up his job/mission/life AND YET
the thing is CASSIAN IS VERY GOOD AT HIS JOB AS AN INTELLIGENCE OFFICER. he’s wildly good at it. and he’s sharp. so smart. the book constantly shows him sifting through his mental catalog of info he’s VERY SMART AND VERY PROFICIENT AT HIS JOB

There will be a Christmas party for Kosegruppa on Friday. Remember, you can’t just join for the fun. Hell week is just around the corner. To everyone else, KG wish you a merry Christmas.
(video) Vilde: Oh, but hello! You’re here? Is your life boring now during the hectic Christmas times? Is it a bit hard to get out of bed because it’s dark outside? Um..Light a candle, stick some dried cloves in an orange! It smells good! Er…and come and be with us.
I’m officially two weeks into teaching “The Hobbit.”
And it is such a rollercoaster.
Here are just a few of the moments I’ve had this week:
A group of girls being obsessed with how small a hobbit baby must be.
One student drawing me a Gollum for his character poster with a bottle of lotion because “It’ll help with his slimy skin.” Then being mad when I pointed out that, if he was wearing the ring (which he was), that he would be invisible, which resulted in a dramatic sigh and a “So I didn’t have to do anything other than the ring,” which made me laugh.
A student thinking elves and trolls are the same thing and a lengthy discussion on what defines each species.
A SPED student who barely pays attention answering my daily riddle almost immediately after I finished reading it and everyone in the room being super impressed, including his para.
One girl whining because she thinks The Hobbit is boring and me rather bluntly telling her that if she didn’t like this, which is relatively modern and fun with adventure, then the next three years of her English education were going to be rough. She then proceeded to whine and I moved on. A second later, another girl who never talks turned to me and gave me a shy smile and said, “I like it.” And I don’t think she knows how much that meant to me because it’s so hard to hear that something you’ve spent so much time and energy into making fun isn’t being appreciated.
One of the kids I taught during my student teaching burst into my room and yelled, “The Hobbit?!?! Why do the freshmen get to read it?!” So, ya know, even if all my freshmen aren’t thrilled, I’ve got a few jealous upperclassmen.
Some things I’ve absolutely come to love about it:
My “nerdy” kids have an opportunity to really be excited and be appreciated by the class for producing insight and pointing out things that are important later that the other kids didn’t notice.
My artistic kids are finding outlets through some of the projects we’re doing and are generally thriving.
My musical kids are singing (or trying to sing) all the various songs in the play and no one is judging or teasing them for it. Plus, it feels more authentic when the songs are sung.
The kids who have seen the movies are having great discussions about book-to-movie adaptations and are noticing more and more minute things and getting more “deep” with their discussions of why changes were made.
My kids are actively looking for theme and having great group discussions about things like greed and heroism and what it means to be kind.
My students are starting to learn how to annotate and actively think while they’re reading so they notice things.
Overall, it’s so great and I love it and how much I can do with it. It makes teaching English so much fun right now. I love it. This is what teaching is supposed to be like.
(different anon) I'd love to see a tutorial someday too. Specifically, how the heck do you get your pastries and ice creams and bread to look so soft and natural?! I've made a couple simple food pixels myself, but they all seem so stiff in comparison.
hum well personally i think making things look natural starts wi sketching out line work. (i did a comparison of a bread bun, starting with the same blue sketch to show the differences) i always do rough sketches & work over them bc i think it gives me a better idea of the form.
i know sometimes it seems right to have everything perfect & symmetrical but it all depends on what your drawing in the first place - because you mentioned like bread & ice-cream etc those things are rarely perfect anyway, so i guess avoid being too structured
then i think another big thing is the colour choice & the balance of the halftone dots for shading. I feel like too much half tone & its one big ordered gradient & yeah that looks kind of odd. & for the colour.. its tempting to just pick out the darkest tone & just gradually make it paler for the highlighty bits - but in reality when you really look at something there’s usually a lot of different kinds of colours (even if it is just white bread). So yeah id say experiment with that - i usually exaggerate and go for much warmer colours tbh.
the last thing that i think makes a huge difference is how you do the shine (if any). it helps to just think about the actual thing your drawing (goes wi out saying but curved and squishy bread probably has a softer curvy shine) and it’s probably not such sharp stark white
i feel like the picture just explains it all way better haha
Okay this is kind of long I’ve probably
repeated the same words a few dozen time and made a ton of grammatical mistakes
AND I use too many comma’s but this is my first time writing smut and like,
third time writing anything at all really so maybe I get a free pass. P.s the
intro is v boring so pls try to ignore that.Also, remember kids, consent it
Y/N knew Klaus Mikaelson well. In fact, she knew him a little
too well. It began the way things like this usually do. He was gorgeous- and he
was interested. And Y/N never had been one to decline good sex. And god, was it
good. He was rough and wild and dominant and she was deliriously addicted. And
she hated it, that she needed him. She Hated the way he touched her, and the
way he held her. But most of all, she hated how good it felt.
But the hybrid screwed
up, out of force of habit, really. He said some things and broke other things,
seething in irrational jealousy. When she asked him to get out of her sight, he
did, but not without claiming that she would come running back to him. Three
months later, she still hadn’t. And while Klaus had tried to change her mind quite a few times, she was adamant.
And it was driving him mad.
So when he heard that Rebekah had invited her with them to
another one of Marcel’s famous fundraisers, he knew he had to take advantage of
it. He and Marcellus had already arrived at Y/N’s doorstep in a limo with half
a dozen or so of his daywalkers when she stepped out her house, a vision in a salmon
coloured satin cami dress and black heels, an encrusted choker adorning her
neck. The driver got out and opened the door for her when she saw a certain
hybrid waiting inside. ’Rebekah had to get to the party a little earlier than
planned to handle some business. She sent us to pick you up, so let’s get on
with it, shall we?’ He spoke smugly, his calculating eyes taking her in. She
stared him down coldly before stepping into the limo to find a place to sit
down, when marcel spoke up. ’right, about that- we had a slight miscalculation
when guessing if everyone would be able to fit in this thing. So you’re gonna
have to sit on someone’s lap.’
‘You’re kidding me right?’ Y/N asked, dumbfounded. ‘unfortunately
not, darling.’ Klaus mused. ‘I volunteer’ hooted one of marcels vampires, wolf
whistling but he shut up when both Klaus and Y/N glared at him. Klaus then looked back at Y/N.
’come on love, are you afraid you won’t be able to contain yourself?’ He
smirked, knowing she wouldn’t refuse a chance to prove him wrong. Y/N huffed as
she gave up and seated herself on Klaus’s lap. Then she leaned back against his
neck, her hot breath fanning his ear. ‘I
hate you.’ she whispered. Klaus just smiled as he passed her a glass of
champagne. ‘sure you do, love’
A few minutes into the ride Y/N had been introduced to everyone
and was enjoying the music and conversation when she felt Klaus’s hand graze
her knee. It travelled up from her lower thigh to come to rest on the seam of
her dress and he could feel her skin tensing under his touch. ‘Anything the
problem love? You seem quite… tense’
he whispered, smirking. ‘Not at all. I’m fine’ she replied coolly, while
reaching up to grab his hand. She shifted in his lap, slowly grinding her
backside on him. With everyone busy clinking their glasses against each other’s,
no one seemed to notice. ‘what about you, are you alright?’ she spoke, a wicked
smile on her face as she traced the back of his hand with her fingers while her
other hand reached to rest on his knee.She could feel him pressing against her
rear, His member hardening at her actions. She looked back at him, pleased with
herself. Klaus stared back at her, his lips pressed together and eyes clouded
with lust. ‘Y/N, love, what do you think you are doing?’ he asked, his voice
coarse. ‘just finishing what you started’ she replied, feigning innocence as
she shifted again to press her derriere against his manhood. Klaus let out a
low growl, placing his hands firmly on her hips while leaning down to press his
lips on the base of her neck and working his way upwards. He nibbled at the rim
of her ear, sending shivers down her body. ‘I knew you’d come back for more’ He
murmurs in her ear, proud of his accomplishment. ‘you just can’t seem to stay
away..’ He continued
Y/N suddenly jerked her body away from the hybrid, taking in
heavy breaths to ground herself. ‘fuck.’ She sighed, running her hands through
her hair just as the limo slowed to a stop. She turned to look at a confused
Klaus. ‘You almost had me there. Almost.’ she stated as the driver opens the
door and she gets out. Still slightly surprised by the swift change of events,
Klaus follows her through the gates of the party but she soon disappears into
the crowd, leaving him angry and frustrated. He scans the masses of sweating,
huddled bodies to find her dancing carelessly with another man while she downs
yet another glass of champagne. Jealousy seething through him, he grabs the
first woman the comes at him, attacking her neck with sloppy kisses while
making sure Y/N notices. She does. But jealousy has never been her game. Her
attention is more focused on the gentleman with his arms around her waist head
in the crook of her neck. 15 or more minutes of the torturous attempts to guile
Y/N to him, Klaus gives up. He drags the girl at his arm to a dark corner and
compels her to be quiet while he bites into her neck, drinking from her while
her body struggles to push him off. When he’s had his fill, He drops her on the
ground, knowing Marcel’s minions would take care of it. He wipes his mouth with
his sleeve, not bothering to clean up and steps back into the raving party just
in time to see Y/N leaving with some man through the back door, her lips on
his, his hands roaming around her body. Anger boiled up in his body as he tears
through the lumps of people to the opposite side on the room where Y/N was. He
opens the door, which lets out into some back alley, to find Y/N pressed up against
a wall, with another man’s lips on hers, hands wandering her gripping her waist.
Now fuming, Klaus flew in a rage towards the fellow, pulling him off of her. ‘what
the fuck, man-’ He started as Klaus shut him up, veins under his eyes as he
compelled him ‘Leave.’ He growled.
Y/N stood back, shocked. ‘what in the hell do you think you’re
doing, Klaus?’ she spat, bringing her hand up to comb through her now messy
hair. Klaus approached her, his stance atrocious as he grabbed her by the
throat. ‘leave him be, love..’ he
hummed. ‘we both know I can take care of you in ways that a human like him
cannot even grasp..’ he mumbled against her neck, leaving stray kisses up and
down her throat. ‘N-Nik..’ Y/N mumbled, barely audible to human ears with the
loud music blaring in the background. ‘what is it,love? Do you want me to stop?’
He grinned, gratified by the effect he had on her. ‘yes.’ She stated firmly, but the moan escaping her lips in the end
stated otherwise. ‘get off of me’ she whispered feebly, pressing her palms
against his chest to drive him off her. He pushed her back against the brick
wall, continuing his advances on her, his lips wandering lower still and his free
hand slipping under her dress. Y/N sighed lightly in pleasure, Her body
rebelling against her instincts. He placed butterfly kisses on the top of her
breasts, the hand on her throat leaving to slip off her dress strap and then
going right back to her throat. He trailed kisses along the valley of her
breasts, nipping and sucking at her flesh. Y/N was a hot mess by now, melting
into his very touch, writhing and moaning. ‘Klaus.. don’t..I-ugh, fuck.’ Klaus came back up to face her. ‘
you can rave and push me off all you want, love, but we both know I am the only
one who can please you like you need it.’ She looked at him. A lamp lit up the
otherwise dark alley, yellow shadows falling on his lashes, the bridge of his
nose, his lips. He was beautiful. ‘you
need to be shown your place, you need to be dominated.’ He said, his lips
dangerously close to hers. ‘ so admit it, Y/N or I can leave you here,
flustered, aroused.’ He whispered,
hot air leaving his lips and hitting hers. She struggles to get words out of
her mouth, her breath stuck in her throat. ‘I
need you’ she uttered, and Klaus’
mouth turned into a lopsided grin. ‘good.’
He whispered, before placing his lips on hers, traces of blood still left on
them for Y/n to taste. His hand strayed to the back of her head, grabbing her
by the hair, continuing to kiss her until she couldn’t breathe. ‘I knew you’d
come around, pet ‘ He whispered
His teeth nipping at her jaw, making goose bumps rise all over
her skin. His other hand hiking her dress up past her hips and then reaching
back to grab her ass. He then let go of her hair, bringing his hand down to cup
her tits and he worked teasingly on her collar bone, no doubt leaving hickeys
to mark her as his. His rolled her left nipple between his thumb and
forefinger, while taking the other in his mouth. Y/N moaned in pleasure,
arching her back to grind on his mouth. Klaus’ right hand brushed against her
inner thighs, then back to the waistband of her panties. He hooked his fingers
around her the soft material, pulling them down in one swift motion. His
fingers slowly, teasingly rubbed her pussy lips, his middle finger slipping
between her folds to graze against her clit Klaus let go of her breasts, receiving
whimpers of complaint from Y/N, which soon stopped as he knelt on the ground,
littering chaste kisses all over her inner thighs. ‘mmhfh’ Y/n groaned, pushing her hips towards his face. ‘Klaus, please’ she begged. Klaus growled,
grabbing her by the hips. ‘patience, love.’ He stated, as he placed his tongue
on her aching core, sucking softly and spots he knew made her weak. Y/n let out
stray sounds of pleasure, unable to contain herself as he continued to
alternate between kitten licking and sucking on her clit. She had missed this,
his mouth on her. She had missed him. He
slurped at her pussy, lapping up her juices, his right hand reaching down to
rub lightly on her clit while he fucked her with his tongue. Strangled words
left her mouth ‘Oh, oh my god, nik’ she cried out. Klaus then withdrew his
mouth from her vulva, earning a groan of dismay from Y/n, but she dare not
question him. He got up, his fingers still working on her clit and leaned in to
kiss her, so she could taste herself.
Y/n got bold herself, undoing the buttons on his shirt and
sliding her hands on his toned torso. He kept rubbing lightly on her swollen
nub as she undid his belt and pants. Klaus’ manhood strained against his boxers
as Y/n stroked him through them with one hand, the other resting on his waist. She
slipped her hand under the waistband of his boxers and pushed them down,
pumping his length rhythmically. Klaus, now growing impatient, hooked one arm
around Y/n’s waist as the other lifted the her leg, prompting her to wrap both
legs around his waist as he entered her. ‘fuck’ she groaned, as he filled her
up, stretching her walls as she wrapped her arms around his neck for support.
Klaus started with steady thrusts while attacking her neck and throat with his
mouth, making her feel hot all over. She could feel her nipples harden against
the fabric of her dress as she let out desperate moans of pleasure with each
thrust. Y/n threw her head back, giving easier access to Klaus while grinding into
his body. ‘you feel so fucking good’ she cried, squeezing her eyes shut. Klaus
grunted in reply, biting at her skin, making her clench around him. She tangled
her fingers in Klaus’ hair. ‘I’m- I’m so fucking close i-‘ she pulled at the
blonde, curly strands in between her fingers. Klaus then pulled out of her
almost completely, sliding his tip on her slit before thrusting his cock back
inside her, bringing his hips to meet hers. He continued the torturous actions
until Y/n couldn’t take it anymore. ‘ Klaus, please.’ ‘please what, sweetheart?’ he spoke, the smug smirk still
on his lips as sweat beaded his forehead. ‘please, go faster and deeper and i-
shit’ she gasped, as he thrusted roughly into her again. ‘you’re so pretty when
you’re begging, love’ he said, making you bite your lip. He hit a certain spot
inside you and you inhaled sharply, her nails digging into his shoulders and
back arching into him. ‘right there?’ he asked, his tone breathless, but still
smug. She nodded your head rapidly, unable to make a sound. she pulled him in
for a deep, desperate kiss, as he held on tighter to your waist, steading
himself as he pumped into her at a faster pace to bring them both closer to
orgasm. They both moaned into the kiss, and Y/n felt Klaus twitch inside her
when she felt her own toes curl, before releasing into waves of pleasure and
bliss, as he did the same, inside her. They both pant, breathless, pulling away
from each other as their moans die down. Still out of breath, Y/n leans her
head back into the wall before looking back at Klaus again. ‘I still hate you.’
She whispers. Klaus smirks at her.
I really wanted to do a project on celebrating ace headcanons and fan representations of ace-spec and aro-spec people. being a sapphic (pan) ace myself its a subject that is dear to me. But I thought, instead of being boring and just creating a whole lot of art on it Why don’t I support, promote and celebrate some of the creative projects others have already made?
So here is the thing. If you have any fanfics featuring ace or aro headcanons that you have read and loved, or have written and would like to see illustrated, message me with the fic name, author name and hosting website (or url). and I will pick my favourites to do an illustration for on my art blog (linking to the fic as well)
(not technically limited to fandom, though i would prefer to illustrate fics for fandoms I actually know)
