what to do with ya'll

anonymous asked:

Would you ever do a tutorial type thing on how you do your sims noses? They're so gorgeous and I love them :^)

This is basically all I do. However I will always add these nosemasks and skin overlays can make a massive difference, depending on the skin!  ⊂(´• ω •`⊂)

THINGS TO ASK YOURSELF AS YOU’RE MAKING A NEW OC: a guide.

I’ve realized a lot of my oc’s are one hit wonders – they stick around for a month and then everything that can be written feels like it’s been tackled, the passion dies, etc. It feels like, as I trudge into the second month, I’ve locked myself into a box. How do I revive them? Can I revive them? What are the problems I need to solve? This is literally just for me to have something to look at as I’m building a new character – a list of do’s and don’t’s I’ve put in my pocket along the way – but if it helps you, feel free to reblog! 

  1. Can my character be written year round? Will I lose inspiration as the seasons change? If the character is holiday or mood specific, what can I do to make sure I’m still interested during those times of year that opposite it? For example, I’m a person that really gets into Christmas. If my character is Halloween or horror-based, what can I do that will stop me from dropping them when I wanna write things cute and jolly? What can I do to make sure they are as flexible as myself?

  2. Am I into the character itself or just their aesthetic? I need to be 100% into my muse so that I can write them in any situation – preferably tons of situations. If I remove my character from their mainverse, will I still be as interested? Am I more into my world building than I am my muse? If so, what can I do to fix that? First and foremost, I need to set their story to the side and focus on their core. 

  3. Am I setting myself up for writing the same thing over and over again? It’s bound to happen, but am I paving the way? For example: does my character have a secret they will inevitably end up sharing 1,000 times? Can I handle that? What should I do to prepare for that? Should I put a limit on how many threads I hold in my mainverse? Should I make my mainverse a singleverse and if so, in what verse will I interact with the majority of other writers? Brainstorm. On paper or to a friend. 

  4. Am I just doing this to force myself out of a funk or am I really passionate about my muse? Passion gets me the furthest; it’s the requirement of requirements. On another note, am I taking things too seriously? Am I worrying too much over how they will be received? Am I worrying too much over whether or not I’ll drop them? A little worry is okay, a little worry is recommended, but I tend to talk myself into the ground if I let it consume the character building process. I must remind myself this is just a hobby and anything is worth a try. Even if it fails – it’s worth a try. 

i want a scene where anakin’s kickin it at padme’s and he’s fiddling with some piece of machinery and padme’s having some girl talk with a fellow senator who’s complaining about how she’s been getting beard burn from her lover or whatever, and anakin, without looking up, just chimes in “have him trim it to medium length and use beard oil on it every night. works like a charm.” and the senator is like “oh. thank you. i’ll have him do that.” and padme just side-eyes the fuck out of anakin like “yes, thank you anakin. though since when have you, my clean-shaven friend, been an expert on beard care?” and anakin’s like “congrats i played myself”

Summary: Y/n is always in combat with herself and people around her. Her life isn’t easy and as time goes by, it seems to get worse. 


“Are you holding up better this time, Y/n?”

The clock on the wall ticked with every passing second. Birds and humans and cars can be heard through the slightly open window of the therapist’s office. The small sofa Y/n lay on got more comforting by the minute. 

Her restless eyes were on the verge of closing for a much needed nap, but the sound of Marie, the therapist, clearing her throat had her eyes snap open and her head shoot up to face her.

“I’m sorry, what was it?”

Marie sighed and subtly looked down to her notepad before looking back up at Y/n. “Are you holding up better?”

Y/n sighed and looked out at the window. The city was bustling as usual. People always on the run, a smile on everyone’s face that passed had just brought a pang of sadness to Y/n’s chest. She wondered why she couldn’t ever be happy for a certain amount of time.

Just that thought had brought tears the brim of her eyes. She shook her head and stared at her therapist.

“Look, it’s difficult. All that you go through, what you’ve been through, I get it. I relate to some degree,” Y/n internally scoffed but was attentive anyways.

“I just need you to find a happy place everytime you feel this sadness seep through you. Whenever you struggle, stay calm, take a deep breath and try to find a solution. Find yourself somewhere else, somewhere you enjoy.”

“Yeah, well even that makes me upset knowing I won’t actually be there.”

Marie let out a breath. Just as she was about to speak, the timer that kept Y/n in the depressing confinements of the building, had rang out. Y/n jumped up and rushed out of the room, not bothering with replying to the farewell of her therapist.

As she rushed out, Y/n kept her head down in attempts to avoid everyone. This only caused her to bump into someone. 

She stumbled back a bit and looked up with wide eyes. A man with the same expression looked back at her. He stepped forward a bit with his arm stretched out. 

“Are you alright?”

Y/n was never one that was well with interaction so she did what she always does when a spur of the moment thing occurs. She gives a small nod, proceeds to look down and rush off.

The strange man stood confused, dazing off to the girl who had just left. He shook his head and cursed. 

“Nice going, Michael.” He told himself before shaking his head once more and stepping into his therapist’s office.

A/n: NEW SERIES!! This is going to be good, trust me. Make sure to tell me what you think of this first one. I’d appreciate feed back.

Shiro loves Keith.  It’s a fact of his universe.  He loved Keith in the Garrison. When they spent long hours staring up at the stars, dreaming of the day they’d be among them.  He loved Keith during the months flying to Kerberos, only Holts and pre-recorded messages to keep him company.  He held onto that love as the arena broke him down body and soul.  When they were reunited and fought together as Paladins of Voltron, that love flourished.  Now as Haggar removed the scales from his eyes and he took his proper place as a servant of Emperor Zarkon, he still loved Keith.  Even though the Red Paladin was misguided and stood against the one true ruler of the universe, the Champion loved him anyways.  Lord Zarkon, in his infinite wisdom and mercy, saw this and granted his loyal follower’s wish to show Keith the way or at least to keep him from trouble.  He loved Keith, and he would keep him safe.  Even from himself…

alright so like, I don’t agree with most of the outcomes of that stupid crunchyroll anime awards and YOI dominating every category (especially ones it didnt deserve like best animation or ED) but like, I get it, its popular. but now it seems like after this whole awards debacle its becoming popular to hate on YOI. Im seeing this mostly on youtube with all the male anime reviewers coming out of the woodwork like “well i never liked it anyway” or “it didnt deserve any of those awards it’s just popular because it’s gay” it’s like a lot of people are seeing the drama of these awards as an opening to bash on YOI…and mostly, they’re bashing on it for being “Yaoi garbage” (literally this is all the comments on any youtube vid about those stupid awards)

but yea, I can see YOI is going from “anime who made history” to “its popular to hate this thing” and “everyone else hates it so i can finally spew my homophobic thoughts on it w/o anyone caring” like ……….

  • Someone: *ships something I don't ship*
  • Me: That's awesome, man. Good for you.
  • Someone: *proceeds to bash and ridicule other ships*
  • Me: What the heck, man! Not effing cool!
