well guess what i'm doing now

Someone online was translating lots of Osomatsu-san fanart for people and I asked if I could draw them something back since they’d been doing all of this for free. They asked for a bee Karamatsu and, well, that’s my specialty these days, isn’t it?

“C’EST LA BEE!”

anonymous asked:

I hate to ask, but school is kicking my butt and I'm really stressed out, do you have any headcanons with the batfamily being "smart"? Like, doing detective things or something? Please only respond if you want to/feel like it. I don't want to be a bother. Thank you.

Hmmm I’m not 100% sure what you’re asking for, but I’ll give it a shot?

  • So Damian didn’t know who his father was until pretty late in the game, BUT I think we can assume that he did hear Ra’s and Talia talk about his dad a few times when he was little. Thing is, they don’t generally use Bruce’s name. They call him “The Detective.”
  • That being the case, I always figured lil Damian ran around thinking “I too will be a detective” and playing at investigation, which would probably boil down to sneaking around in order to overhear as much as possible. For the record, I don’t think he ever dropped that habit.
  • I also think that lil Damian was obsessed with Sherlock Holmes, since Holmes is probably the most famous literary detective around. I happen to know that when Tim was fourteen, he was a member of the Sherlock Holmes Society (Detective Comics #618), so I figure they’ve got that bit in common. We are, however, talking about Tim and Damian, so when I say “something in common,” what I mean is “something to compete over.”
  • On top of the expected squabbling about the merits of different media adaptations, odds are they have contests where they both try to observe somebody and deduce as much information as possible. It’s not the kind of thing Bruce would discourage. They are supposed to be cultivating those skills, plus Bruce loves Holmes too. Another thing Bruce enjoys is showing up his children, so it works out well for him. He’s very, very good at that game.
  • So is Dick. Cass is a specific kind of good at it, because of the body language thing. They don’t make their guesses to their subject’s face, so Babs (also a talented player) fact-checks electronically as much as possible. It’s a decent way to pass time on slow patrols. They call it a training game.

So what have we learned today

Do NOT ‘convert’ anyone’s fic/story without first getting permission. Now after a simple search on Wattpad I found quite a few fics that were ‘converted’ from other fandoms, most without giving even a hint of the original author’s name. For example today with @blackleatherboots139 who converted many fics to Camren. Also note, I am not coming for the camren fandom I am simply using what I found and what happened today as an example, I am coming for any person that would dare copy someone’s work without permission.

Nevermind that if the author hasn’t explicitly told you yes that you shouldn’t even have converted their fic and posted it in the first place. If you aren’t even going to give them their due credit then you KNOW somewhere inside that what you did was wrong.

So here’s a PSA this goes for anything fan art, fan videos (including gifs you may have made and posted from a video that you did NOT make), fanfiction and anything you did not make originally. If you do not have permission from the original maker of that content then you should under no circumstances try to copy it and pass it off as your own. Someone put a lot of work into those words or into every stroke of that art or editing needed for that video and you changing a few details like a character’s name or a change of colors DOES NOT GIVE YOU THE RIGHT to take that content and then try and pass it of as your own.

And no putting the word ‘Converted’ on a story still DOES NOT give you that right unless you have gotten permission AS WELL AS given credit to the original content creator. I cannot stress that enough because what I have seen today truly baffled me. Over 89 fics on Wattpad alone copied and ‘converted’ from clexa and shoot and bechloe and glee and supercorp and hollstein and many other fandoms I’m sure. 

THIS IS NOT OK WITHOUT THE ORIGINAL CONTENT MAKER’S PERMISSION if it was ok sites like wattpad and ao3 and ff.net and Youtube and Tumblr would not have an option to report this as theft. 

One of my friends was so upset by the blatant thievery of their hard work that they thought of deleting their stories. and YES this is a form of THEFT and NO i’m not being dramatic but I am quite angry. 

And you know the excuse I heard? “Well other people do the same thing…” Now I know this is cliche but, if someone jumped off a cliff would you do it as well? Guess what those people that also do this? They are also in the wrong. The fact that they also do it does not make it right it simply means they have yet to get caught and reported. 

Just because what you converted/copied was fanfiction or a fan art or a fan video does not make it any less of a problem than if you outright copied copyrighted work from a book or an ad on Tv etc…

can you believe that a few days ago my principal told me that it would be physically impossible for me to graduate on time so I pulled four consecutive all – nighters  &  now I’m actually going to be done a week early :’)

———–

Cas stared wide-eyed at the hunter laying on his bed, absolutely speechless. He was in awe, and both Sam and Dean were completely unaware. Sam, because he was sleeping, and Dean, simply because he was human. But Cas? He couldn’t believe what he was looking at, let alone if it was even real.

Sam Winchester had angel wings.

Cas, still in complete shock, left the younger Winchester’s room and went into Dean’s. He shook Dean’s shoulder, earning himself a tired groan and a grumbled “Cas go away”. The angel only responded by shaking him harder. Dean sighed, sitting up.

“What, Cas? What is it?” Dean offered when he realized the angel was probably not going to leave until he acknowledged him.

“It’s Sam… He’s… He has wings, Dean, angel wings.” The younger man’s eyes widened, having never been more confused or scared in his life.

“What? Are you sure?”

“Yes, I was staring at them for almost a full hour. They’re there. And if they’re anything like angel wings, you can’t see them unless he wants you to see them. I can see them, because I’m an angel, but I don’t know if he’s even capable of letting you see them.”


"How?”

“I’m not sure. He must’ve been cursed on the hunt yesterday. That’s the only logical explanation I can think of.”

“Okay um… I’ll check the library, see if I can find anything to reverse the… Spell, or whatever the hell this is. You stay with Sam and make sure he’s okay. Got it?” Dean planned, to which he received a nod from Castiel. “Good.” Dean got up, grabbing some clothes from his closet and a few other things before heading to the bathroom to get himself ready. Cas went into Sam’s room, seeing that he was starting to wake up.

“Logical explanation for what?” He heard Sam say, and while he was still incredibly sleepy, he overheard Cas and Dean’s conversation.

“Nothing, Sam, don’t worry about it yet. How are you feeling? Is everything okay?” Cas asked, trying and failing not to make his concern obvious.

“I’m… Fine, Cas, are you okay?” Sam asked, sitting up properly. The angel saw Sam’s wings flutter a bit as he got up and smiled, looking down at his own lap.

“Sam… There’s something you should know…” Sam was silent, giving Cas a confused look; he looked like a lost puppy and Cas almost didn’t want to tell him. “Sam, you have wings. Real, actual wings.” Sam’s eyes widened as he looked to either side of himself, seeing the dark feathers on his newfound appendages.

“What the— how the hell— Cas, what…” Sam looked at him with wide eyes, taking in small, shaky breaths.

“Sam, calm down, I don’t know how it happened. It must’ve been a spell or something, nothing we can’t solve. You’ll be okay, I promise.” Cas smiled, resting his hand on Sam’s forearm and gently rubbing his thumb against it to calm him. Sam let Cas continue, because, he won’t lie, it felt great, as he gently brought his knees up to his chest. They sat together in comfortable silence for a little bit before Sam pulled his arm back to wrap around his legs, and Cas broke the silence right after.

“Y'know,” Cas started. “You… Your wings are very beautiful, Sam.” Sam looked up at Cas with wide, confused eyes. He seemed so small in that moment, Cas couldn’t believe he was truthfully over thirty years old. He looked no bigger than a toddler, and Cas couldn’t help but smile at him. And to top it all off, he was blushing a little from the compliment.

“I don’t… What?”

“Your wings. They’re very pretty. They’re huge and unique, kind of like you in a sense. They’re a very nice looking color, close to black but not quite as dark. They were spread out beautifully while you were asleep, you must’ve been having a good dream, and, as a whole, you’re wings are incredibly gorgeous— Sam? What’s wrong?” Cas asked as he noticed that Sam’s wings had fallen noticeably and he was hugging his legs tighter, his face hidden in his knees. He was getting increasingly more red every second, and Cas thought it was adorable that he could get so embarrassed that easily. “I don’t understand, why are you so red?”

“It’s nothing, just… Stop complimenting me, Cas.”

“Sam, I still don’t see what the problem is. All I’m saying is that your wings are—”

“Don’t.” Sam interrupted, shyly curling up more; his wings actually started to wrap around him too. “I-I’m just… Not used to compliments, I’m sorry. It makes me a little uncomfortable.”

“Sam…” Cas muttered, resting his hand on Sam’s lower back and rubbing it softly, trying not to touch his wings. But, when he saw Sam smile and bite back laughter, he was smiling even wider.

“Cas– Cas stop. It’s, I-it feels weird.” Sam stuttered, sitting up straight and giggling a little.

“Sam, I don’t understand, what’s wrong?” Cas said smugly, even though he knew exactly what he was doing, but Sam didn’t have time to answer. He was letting out a steady stream of giggles as Cas gently raked his nails across Sam’s lower back. Cas soon ended up with his arm wrapped around Sam’s waist and lightly tracing shapes into his sides. Sam was giggling and pulling halfheartedly at Cas’s wrist, but Cas was effortlessly stronger than him, and could easily move Sam however he wanted with his grace, so he was trying not to struggle too much for both of those reasons. It was a little too early for him to get anything but light tickles.

“Cahaha- Cahahas hehey, stop— it tihihihickles!”

“You know, Sam,” Cas said, completely disregarding Sam’s statement as he moved closer to Sam and poked at his tummy, earning a few adorable squeaks. Sam pushed lightly at Cas’ hands, leaning further and further back to try to escape the tickly feeling until he ended up laying on his back. “It’s not that compliments make you uncomfortable—”

“Cahahas– drop it.”

“—it’s just that no one gives them to you.”

“Let it— just leave ihihit alohohone.”

“And I can change that.” Cas ceased his tickling for a minute so Sam could entirely hear what he was saying. “I’m making a resolution to give you compliments every day, from this moment on. And with that said,” Cas dig his fingers into Sam’s ribs, relishing in the loud squeak and the steady stream of giggles Sam produced.

“CAS! Dohohon’t!”

“Don’t?” Cas asked incredulously, head tilted to the side as he smiled. “Why not?”

“‘Cahause— behecahause— Cas!” The hunter’s laughter only grew higher pitched as Cas moved down to tickle his tummy.

“Yes, Sam?” Sam simply shook his head, too lost in embarrassment and laughter to answer properly.

“Juhuhust stohohohohop!” Sam tried to stop laughing long enough to give Cas his famous puppy dog eyes, but it proved pointless.

“Why?” He asked again, smiling at the man beneath him. “Too ticklish?”

“Shut up!” The hunter rushed before falling into more helpless laughter, blushing at the accusation. Sam’s one hand went down to gently hold onto Cas’ wrist, though he didn’t do anything past that, and his other hand went up to cover his face.

“You’re blushing.” The angel pointed out, giving Sam a short break by slowing his tickling to just gently ghosting his fingertips over Sam’s tummy, creating goosebumps over the toned skin. “It’s cute.”

“Cahas—” the hunter giggled, only blushing harder. His hand still held onto Castiel’s wrist, though he still didn’t try to stop the angel.

“Sam, I must say your laughter is very endearing.” Cas pointed out and the hunter smiled wider, shaking his head and covering his face even further.

“Cahas plehehease—” Sam managed through his laughter.

“I wonder if your wings are as sensitive as mine?” Cas thought out loud, smirking as Sam let out a steady stream of nervous giggles. Sam’s giggling grew louder as he watched the angel’s hands slowly descended down towards his wings, his fingers curved in a claw-like form.

“Cas, no, nononononono Cas, Cas don’t please—!” The rest of the hunter’s pleas were lost as Cas’s fingers collided with his wings, causing Sam to burst out laughing as his body instinctively tried curling up. His knees drummed against Cas’s back as he shook his head, his whole body eventually going limp as he decided to just take it and get it over with.

“Your dimples are very sweet, I’m glad I get to see them in this light.”

“Cahahahas!” Sam brought both hands up to cover his face now, still giggling helplessly, which Cas found absolutely adorable. Cas smirked and used his grace to keep the tickling at the wings before reaching behind him and squeezing Sam’s knees. The hunter let out a loud squeak and bucked his hips, sending the angel flying forward, and he landed mere inches from Sam’s face. He withdrew his grace and stopped tickling, deciding Sam actually needed to breathe sooner or later, as he pressed a gentle kiss to Sam’s forehead.

“How are you doing?” He said as he sat up again.

“Better–” Sam said, still giggling, as he removed his hands from his face. “Thanks, Cas.”

“You’re still blushing.” Cas said, making Sam groan as he rolled over as far as he could with Cas still straddling him to bury his face in the pillow. “No, Sam, it’s cute!”

“No!” Sam whined, giggling sweetly into the pillow.

“Sam.” The angel smiled, rubbing Sam’s arm to calm him down.

“You're… Not nice.” Sam said, voice muffled by the pillow, giggling more as he heard Cas laugh at the comment.

“I’m sorry, but it made you feel better about the wings, right?” Sam emerged from the pillow and crossed his arms over his chest, pouting a little.

“I guess… Yeah.” Sam couldn’t stop himself from smiling.

“And, hey, now I have a way to make you smile whenever I want.” The angel teased, smiling brightly as Sam let out a sound somewhere between a squeak and a sigh. “I’m just kidding, don’t worry.”

“Well… I have a question for you now.” The hunter asked, propping himself up on his elbows.

“What?”

“When you were… Uh… Tickling the wings, you said you wonder if they’re ‘the same as yours’… Care to explain?”

“Uh… Well… I'm— I don't…” Cas stammered, slowly pushing himself off Sam. Unfortunately, Sam caught him, and leaned forward to wrap his arms around the angel’s waist before turning the tables, dropping Cas on the bed and quickly straddling his hips. “Sam—! Sam, I-I… What are you doing?”

“Testing my theory.”

i dont actually know if this is accurate, and i cant find a straight answer when i google it, but cant insurance companies not deny you based on preexisting conditions? i thought that was part of obamacare that trumpcare kept, so wouldnt adding all these conditions be good cause now insurance companies actually cant deny you insurance based on those? or did trumpcare not really keep the whole "insurance companies cant deny you based on preexisting conditions" thing?

Again, I have not said that insurance companies would be able to deny you over pre-existing conditions, instead I’ve stated that protections will be removed from people with them. 

States will be allowed to opt out of provisions that required insurance companies to cover “essential health benefits” and charge everyone the same regardless of their health history. 

Right now, the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) protects those with pre-existing conditions. Insurers are not allowed to deny patients or treat them unequally for having a pre-existing condition. They are not allowed to charge more and essentially keep these patients from obtaining insurance. Trump’s American Health Care Act will end these PROTECTIONS, meaning that states can opt out and allow insurers to basically do whatever they want regarding pre-existing conditions. 

If it’s anything like it was before then those with pre-existing conditions will start seeing costs drive up 5x - 10x higher than those without. This doesn’t deny them necessarily but it squeezes them out through pricing. It’s pretty obvious what the intentions are of doing this and that’s exactly why protections are in place. It’s not saying “we are denying you because you have _____,” it’s saying “we are now charging you 10 times more than that person and if you can’t afford it then oh well, I guess no insurance for you.” It’s a not-so-sneaky way of doing the same thing.

I think I'm on flipside of everyone in that I think your writing is pretty hackneyed and cliche. Though I guess that does fit in with Choices writing being cliche as well.

So… what now?

Do I stop writing? Do I change the way I write? 🙄 I won’t do any of that, of course. I love my writing voice. I believe in it and the truths it both masks and reveals.

My three questions above are meant for you to reflect on how you give feedback. While you’re entitled to your opinion, giving feedback entails something actionable for both parties.

On your end, since you don’t like my writing, you could scroll past it, skip it.

On my end, you simply telling me that you’re not a fan of it and that it’s cliché, is to me, just a rant and a way for you to make the other person feel bad. What could work better is if you give more constructive feedback. What do you think could make the writing less cliché? What works in the current writing that you think the writer should carry on with?

I ask you to reflect on how you leave comments, not just in this particular Ask but in other parts of your life or notes you may or may not be leaving on other tumblrs.

I also highly encourage you to get off Anon. It’s so easy to say something negative when you’re wearing a mask. I honestly do not encourage that.

We won’t agree on all points, and that’s fine. But what I will never compromise on is HOW feedback is given – constructive and always with respect.

Alright, I asked this in anon but I may as well just ask again. You spoke to me about two and half years ago, I said I wasn't a writer and I was going to give up but then you said to me that my words 'spoke to you'. and hoped that I would get down to work on my writing soon. well, two and half years later I have finally done it, I put together a graphic novel and put t out there, got a great reaction. ... but now I'm not sure where to go from here. so, I guess my question to you is... now what?

get that cool book of yours in front of anyone you can think of who might like it or help further your goals for it.  anyone.  reporters, publishers, editors, readers who’s feeds you dig…  

do not be shy. don’t be annoying but don’t be shy.

but for getting your writing done and sticking to your goals…

So I'm writing a novel. You know how it's just best to poop out the first draft basically ASAP? Well I'm writing and now that I'm getting to the end of it, somehow I find out much to my own damn surprise that it's actually in first person of this prophet who's fault it basically is for every ounce of the problems protagonist and crew have had. I've been writing in what I guess was assuming it was third person. Is this weird? Or do I need to go back and rewrite at what was a 3 am sleep drunk?

Isn’t writing fun? 

This is not weird at all. In fact, it’s completely normal. I’ve been working on my novel for a good three years now, and my current antagonists used to be the good guys. And my former antagonist became a good guy, and then became ambiguous, and then kind of became a bad guy again. Obviously things can change drastically as you’re writing a novel. 

But sometimes you just gotta roll with these punches and find intrigue in it. Our creativity ebbs and flows, and it’ll go in directions we don’t expect. One way I find enjoyment in it is being able to look back at where I started and see how far I’ve come. The journey our stories go through act like journals of our writing progress, without us actually having to journal. Won’t it be fun in years ahead to look back and see where your story began?

I don’t think you have to rewrite something just because it didn’t turn out how you expected. But you may have to take the time and see if you “come to your senses” or if this new direction is in fact the new direction. Was it a temporary moment of sleep-deprived insanity? Or was it a new idea germinating, only needing some encouragement from you to grow?

Considering you asked this question several weeks back (my apologies), I’m sure you might know by now how you feel about it. Who do you think the protagonist is? The prophet? Or the ones the prophet is causing problems for? What’s more, are you dealing with an “evil protagonist,” or do you think the motives or your prophet have changed to the point where this character is not the evil one, but the other characters are

In my little personal story up above, I mentioned that my antagonists changed throughout my writing, and this was a result of my exploring their motives more. Originally, they were simply background support for the protagonist. When I thought about why they were helping my characters stop the antagonist, it all came across as really self serving, and a lightbulb hit me late at night and I took their self serving motives and actually made them into malicious motives. And a new antagonist was born. And they were far more interesting as an antagonist than as background support for the protagonist. It was a huge change, but it excited me, so I went with it. 

So @nerd-most-likely, I think you should evaluate the motives of your characters to see what it is they really want. Once you can clearly state what each side wants, try to figure out how those wants affect the other side, and then further, what they will do about it. For example, what does the prophet want? And how exactly do those wants create chaos for your other characters? You alluded to it a LOT of chaos for those other characters, but was it intentional? What is the prophet going to do it about now? Try to help them, or continue to create more problems? 

Once you have that detailed out, look at it from the other perspective. What do those other characters want? In this case, solving all the chaos the prophet created could be part of it, and in achieving that goal of solving the chaos, is the prophet affected? Do they have to “defeat” the prophet to resolve the problems? 

Through this process, you might discover that both sides are truly at odds with each other. One side needs the other to fail in order to succeed. <<When this becomes true of your story, you’ve defined a protagonist/antagonist dynamic. Now you just have to decide which is which.

There’s potentially two stories you can tell here. The prophet’s story, and how the other characters’ actions affect that story; and the story of the characters, and how the prophet’s actions affect that story. You get to decide which one appeals to you more. Regardless of who the “evil” one is, you get to choose whose story sounds most fascinating. Even if the prophet is the one in the wrong, that story could be the better story. There’s no rule that says you can’t write stories from the perspective of the villains. You might even decide to write from both perspectives, so readers see both sides of the story and have to decide for themselves whose side they’re going to take in the end. 

As far as point of view goes, switch to first person if that feels more comfortable for you. I’m a huge advocate of staying in your comfort zone with point of view, and only challenging yourself if it’s something you want to do. It’s unusual for a story to use both first and third person perspectives, but it’s not non-existent. Storytelling is about experimentation, so experiment! 

I hope this was helpful! You are certainly not alone in dealing with drastic story changes as you’re writing. As frustrating as it can be to back track and change things you’ve already written, it’s also kind of cool to see the way our creativity…creates things. It’s not instantaneous - it’s a process that requires patience, and sometimes you have to put the pause button on “focus” because the attention span of creativity can be next to nothing. 

So just go with it! Good luck with your story :)
