anonymous asked:

Since we will all be suffering for a month until the new update, do you have anything you recommend; manga or anime?

YASSSS but these are mostly shoujo and 1 or 2 of seinen manga so if you’re looking for more yaoi/yuri sorry. 

  • Hare Kon (Smut) by Non

“Koharu, tired of all the men in her life being lying, married philanderers, decides to move back home, away from the city. Once there she finds her family saddled with a huge debt and no way out until a handsome but creepy stranger offers to pay the debt, at the same time asking…”

THIS GETS REALLY GOOD AS IT GOES ON! As long as you don’t mind having traditional views of love being tested.

  • Madame Petit by Takao Shigeru 

“It’s the 1920s and Mariko, age 16, is married to a man 30 years her senior. She’s honestly happy to be his wife and really excited to board the Orient Express in Turkey on their honeymoon trip. But her life takes a rapid turn when her husband is discovered dead after the first night on board… And that’s only the start of Mariko’s great adventure.”

This one too gets really better. It was kind of boring at the first but action follows later :)

  • Hachimitsu ni Hatsukoi by Minase Ai

“I don’t have family, friends, or a boyfriend. But there’s someone I love. We have that strange relationship: childhood friend.” 

The heroine is not your typical shoujo heroine, she’s absolutely strong in her feelings and it’s actually admirable. 

  • Nekota no Koto ga Ki ni Natte Shikatanai

“Amane Mikiko, better known as Mikki, is an elementary school student who moves a lot and has to transfer schools often. As soon as she makes friends, she has to painfully say goodbye to them. She is determined to not make any new friends at her new school, but if doesn’t exactly go her way…”

LOL I love mystery so I was like ??? why is he like that. Finished it and it was so fluffy and cute.

  • Escape Journey (BL) by Ogeretsu Tanaka 

“In college, Naoto has an unexpected reunion with ex-boyfriend Taichi who he broke up with for denouncing him as “sexual gratification.”

It’s very relatable, breaking up with the one you love so you have that heavy feeling in your heart and wonder if you let the right one go. It’s a story of growth between these two so definitely give it a try. 

  • Tsubaki-chou Lonely Planet by Yamamori Mika

“Ohno Fumi is a poor 2nd-year high school student. Because of her father’s debts, she’s kicked out of her own home and has to rely on her own connections to survive. Thus begins her life living with and housekeeping for a writer…” 

I thought this was a really cute story with some fantastic drawing. Makes me wish I was a high school student in Japan LOL.

  • Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare by Sakisaka Io

“The story centers around Yuna and Akari who have two very different views of love: Yuna is someone who sees love as a dream and Akari is someone who is very realistic about her romance choices. Meanwhile, there are two boys, Kazuomi and Rio, who also have very different views of love.” 

Very very very good! A nice pace but with the right enough of plot progress to not be frustrated. 

  • Liar x Liar by Kindaichi Renjuuro 

“One day, on a whim, twenty-year-old Minato decides to walk around the city dressed in her friend’s cute high school uniform. To her horror, she ends up running into her stepbrother, Tooru.”

It’s sadly in hiatus until August but OMG! Fucking finally there’s some action with these two. 

  • Yatamoto (BL) by Harada

“Momo with no ambitions, is the ultimate scum, good-for-nothing guy. Yata-chan is a chill, caring, and naive youth. During their meeting in a public bathroom…” 

Bruh this story got no chill. That’s all I’m going to say. 

  • Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai (BL) by Yoneda Kou 

“Yakuza Yashiro, who only ever loved Kageyama, meets a new bodyguard, Doumeki Chikara. Unfortunately, the latter is impotent.” 

No matter what anyone says, this is fucking amazing. FUCKING AMAZING!

Liu Chuyu was the first-born daughter of Emperor Xiaowu and his empress, during the Liu Song dynasty. Never heard of it? Neither had I. Lasting just 60 years in the 400s CE, it was one of the four southern kingdoms which succeeded the Eastern Jin Empire. While it was going, the Liu Song dynasty ruled most of southern China, but a string of incompetent or tyrannical emperors led to internal instability and the dynasty’s quick downfall.

Luckily for her, Liu Chuyu was born during a relatively stable period. Her father became Emperor Xiaowu by force, but his reign was more or less stable, and he died of natural causes when she was 17 or 18. The transition of power was bloodless and his son, Liu Chuyu’s younger brother, followed Emperor Xiaowu upon the throne.

Before he died, her father married her to He Ji, son of a prominent official. Liu Chuyu doesn’t seem to have been so happy about this. History records that when her brother left the palace she would often go to see him. One of those visits, Liu Chuyu said to him “While our genders are different, we are born of the same father. However, you have more than 10,000 women in your palaces, and I only have one husband, and this is unfair.” In response, her younger brother selected 30 young handsome men for her to keep. (Doesn’t it sound weird when put like that?) Liu Chuyu … enjoyed… them for a year before her brother was assassinated. Her uncle took the throne, denounced Liu Chuyu for her immorality, and ordered her to commit suicide. No more male harems for princesses.

It was boring Friday and you were at school in maths, it was the last class of the day but the class had seemed to be taking forever. It felt like you had been in this drab classroom for hours when in fact it had only been 30 minutes. 

You had been staring at the clock when you saw someone walk into the classroom and up to the teacher, the teacher called out for you “Y/N, to the office” You didn’t know what you had done to earn this but you got up, packed your stuff up and followed the boy down the hall. You decided that if it took you long enough to get to the office you wouldn’t have to go, so you began to walk as slow as you could possibly manage. 

The boy had noticed that you were walking slowly so he turned around and gripped onto your wrist.

7+1 tips for coding…

I had this post sitting on my drafts for a few weeks, so I decided to make it pretty and post it. Enjoy!

Based on what my teachers told us.

1. Think before coding.  →  Take 10 minutes, 20 or even 30, whatever you need and think about which design pattern (if any) is appropriate for what you are going to code. Really think about it, you’ll be glad for those “wasted” minutes when you have to change or add something on the code and it only takes you 30 minutes instead of 5 hours.

2. Comment your code. →  Seriously, there’s nothing worse than check your own code two months later and don’t remember what it does. Comment everything important, avoid really obvious things.

3. Write clean code →  Indentate. Use spaces. Separate your code in blocks by functionality.  Read Clean Code by Robert C. Martin, it’s really useful. Also, follow whatever convention/standard the code has (like the Java Code Conventions), especially if it’s a shared code.

4. Refactoring is your friend. →  Nobody likes those looooooooong methods with tons of lines. Usually (almost always), that means you’re mixing functionality. Separate the code in more manageable methods. It also helps to make the code more reusable… which lead us to 5.

5. DO NOT COPY AND PASTE CODE.   →  If you have the same chunk of code twice or more times, you’re probably doing something wrong. Read no. 4.

6. Use meaningful names. →  It’s always funny to name your int variable “elligent” or your char, “mander”; but that doesn’t say anything about what it is for.

7. Test your code. →  Test, TEST, test, tEST. Also, test as you code. Don not wait until you’re done with the program to test it or you’ll regret when you find a giant bug you don’t even know where it came from.

7b. Automated testing is usually worth it. It also helps to save a lot of time with retesing and regression testing.

7+1. Learn to debug. →  In my first year, I used to think that I could manage without knowing how to do it and by printlning every time I had a problem. Wrong. Sometimes, I wouldn’t even find the bug and checking for “lost” println is a waste of time.

Welcome Home Betty -- Bughead

Word Count: 2,004

Rated: R

A/N: A little continuation of Welcome Home Juggie. I love the Happy!Bughead stories. #FluffySmut (Read on AO3)


“Curfew!” The shrill voice of Alice Cooper could be heard from a mile away. Unfortunately, she was standing just outside Betty’s bedroom door. “Jughead, back to your room.”

Jughead was sitting at the end of Betty’s bed with his arms propped behind him, while Betty leaned against her headboard with her legs strewn lazily over her boyfriend’s lap. In her hands she was holding Jughead’s beanie, fiddling with the pointed ends of the crown. He’d recently taken to lounging without his hat on, only in his and Betty’s rooms of course.

Ever since Jughead had moved in the Cooper’s had a rule that doors had to remain open when the two of them were together in a room, and after eleven o'clock they had to return to their separate rooms.

When neither Betty nor Jughead made a move to separate from each other, Alice shouted again. “Now, please.”

Jughead scrambled off the bed in an instant. He was not one to put himself at the mercy of his girlfriend’s uptight mother. Betty followed him up, giving him a quick peck on the lips. She couldn’t give him the goodnight kiss he deserved with her mother standing there, but she couldn’t just let him walk away without any show of affection.

“Goodnight, Jug.” Betty said, hugging him tightly.

“Goodnight, Betts.” Jughead reciprocated with a kiss to her forehead.

“That’s quite enough.” Alice interrupted. “Separate rooms. And you had better stay in your own rooms. Don’t think I don’t hear you two talking in the middle of the night. ”

“Yes, Mrs. Cooper.” Jughead sidestepped Alice on his way out the door.

“I swear to God I will install security cameras if I have to. Don’t test me.”

“Goodnight, Mom.” Betty sighed, slowly shutting the door in her mother’s face.

From her side of the door, Betty listened to the footsteps as her mother and boyfriend retreated to their own rooms. One by one the doors clicked shut and Betty returned to the warm spot on her bed. She took her phone from the bedside table at the same time that a message popped up on the screen.

Jug: This is hell.

Betts: I know. I miss you already.

A grin spread itself across Jughead’s face. Everything Betty did or said made Jughead happier that he could imagine. He didn’t even mind that, while staring up at the message on his phone, he dropped his phone right on his face.

“Fuck!” He whispered under his breath. He rolled over in his bed and pulled the blanket over his head.

Jug: How long are we going to let her rules control us?

Betts: What did you have in mind?

As if she didn’t know. Jughead and Betty had spent plenty of time in their hideout under the stairs. It was the only place they could truly be alone. Thus far, they would only hide away after school and on weekends when Betty’s parents were working on a story. And God knows Riverdale has plenty of breaking news stories to keep them busy.

Jug: Our Spot. 30 mins. I’ll go first. You follow 5 mins after.

Betts: It’s a date ;)

anonymous asked:

I find it hilarious that little kids watching their parents pay with a card can read and follow the instructions better than the parents can. Do critical reading skills go out the window when you hit 30?

I have a theory. It’s prob going to give me some hate but hey whatever.

My theory is the human brain can only absorb so much knowledge. Like the more book learning you have the less common sense remains. That’s why doctors and lawyers can’t figure out the self checkout or change a tire.

My wife is the smartest person I personally know. And when I met her she could figure out anything. But now that she’s a vet she can’t even figure out how to get to her email by herself.

This photo got me feeling some type of way about an 80′s Tom so, I did a thing and it makes me laugh so don’t take this too seriously. Also this is going to have a few more parts to it so let me know what you think and if you’d like to be tagged. 

Playlist

Tom was walking alone in the middle of the night when it happened. He always took the same shortcut through the alley to get home, but this time, he hit a dead end, meaning he must have gone down the wrong alley. He turned to walk away, when he heard Whip It by DEVO in the distance, it peaked his interest only because he didn’t think anyone would be listening to this 30 years after it was popular; it was DEVO and not even the good DEVO, nobody listened to DEVO. He followed the techno beat into a brick building next to him, the sound getting louder and louder with every step.

The sound took him up three flights of stairs before he found an empty room with a CD player sat next to the open window. Tom went over to the player to turn it off and look around, as he stood looking out of the window, he heard shuffling behind him. He whipped his head around and in that instant, he felt himself getting pushed out of the window he was standing in front of. Before he could hit the floor, he closed his eyes and braced himself for impact, but lost consciousness before he could feel the pavement under him.

“Cut! That’s it!” announced Bob just after Jensen, Jared, and Y/N ‘sped away’ in the Impala.

“Finally!”Jensen groaned. Because Jared decided he was going to relieve his bodily gas into the car without telling anyone, it took 30 more minutes than it was supposed to. It was already 1:00am and everyone was flat out aggravated and ready to go home.

As the trio got of the car and slammed their doors, Jensen and Y/N coughed and gagged.

Y/N strained out, “I think I need an oxygen tank.”

Jared laughed rolled his eyes playfully, “C’mon, you guys. It wasn’t that bad.” Jensen and Y/N both gave him the are-you-serious glare.

Before anyone could complain any more, Bob walked up to them with papers in his arms. “This is the call sheet for tomorrow. We may have some minor changes, but we’ll let you know when you come in tomorrow morning. Sounds good?” With a few ‘okay’s and ‘thank you’s, he walked away leaving the three of you alone again.

Y/N covered her mouth as she yawned, obviously a sign that she needed to get home soon. “Good job boys,” she told her friends. “I’m going to get Clif and head home. See y’all tomorrow.”

With a pat on Jared’s shoulder, she turned to walk away, but Jensen caught her arm. He spun her around to face him and with a pleading look said, “I’ll bring you home so Clif doesn’t have to drive across town to bring Jared home after you.” Although he didn’t make it very obvious, his eyes told her everything she needed to hear.

“Okay, yeah.”

“Well I guess we should get going before you fall asleep, then,” he chuckled, obviously rushing.

The both of them said their ‘goodnight’s to Jared and few of the crew members, eager to leave as soon as possible. When they finally made it to the car, Y/N let out a dramatic sigh of relief. “Finally, thank God.”

“You know, we’re starting to run out of excuses,” he chuckled, accelerating as fast as he could to get out of there.

There was a brief silence before she suggested hesitantly, “Or we could just stop having to make excuses.” Jensen sighed at her answer to him, but this facade that they kept up was going to go south one way or another and  Y/N loathed it with every fiber in her body.

She started acting on the show about a year ago, but was only supposed to have a 3-episode story arc. Her and Jensen were just friends, at first. A little flirting here and there, but nothing really serious until one day, Jensen had enough and just kissed her without any hesitation.

Y/N loved being there working with the Supernatural cast and crew, but it was hard to work there and be with Jensen. She thought that people would make it difficult for them to work together, so they’d decided not to tell anyone–not even Jared. At first, it wasn’t so hard, but months of it? She felt like she was drowning in so many lies that she couldn’t keep up. What made it worse was that recently she had been told that her character, Finleah, would now be frequently occurring on the show as a paradoxical-like character.

Although she told herself it was best for her and Jensen, a part of her thought that obviously if their off-screen relationship hasn’t affected their on-screen relationship by now, why would it after they’d told everyone?

Because Y/N was lost in her thoughts, the car fell silent. “Babe,” Jensen nudged her by pressing his knuckles to her thigh. She looked at him and he saw the vapors in her eyes for a quick second before he had to look at the road again. He couldn’t stand to see her upset; it made him feel like he wasn’t doing good enough.

“We will one day,” he comforted. “One day soon.” Those words made Y/N smile weakly. She loved Jensen, even if he didn’t know it, and  she wanted everyone else to know it, too.


 The next morning, Y/N had gotten up early because the call sheet read that she, Jared, and Jensen had to be there for 9, so being her always-prompt self, she made sure to be there for 8:30. When she got to set, though, she was told that the scene was moved to 12 because they needed more coverage on Misha and Jared’s scene. Of course. My luck.

As she groaned at the news, she turned to see Jared walking towards her. Before he could say so much as a ‘good morning’, she told him, “Our scene got moved.”

Then it was his turn to groan. “So you’re telling me I woke up this early for nothing?”

With a small giggle she informed him, “Oh, no. You still have a scene with Mish.” His eyes rolled out of his head at her words. Walking away, Y/N shouted over her shoulder, “Good luck J-Pad!”

She yawned as she walked to her trailer. Now that she didn’t have to get to hair and makeup until 11:15, she decided that it didn’t hurt to take a nap.

Before she got into her trailer, she saw someone running out of the corner of her eye. She turned to see Jensen jogging to the hair and makeup trailer, obviously late as usual.

“Jackles,” she called out at him.

With a confused look, he stopped jogging and turned towards her. “Y/N, we’re late. Let’s go,” he shouted, motioning for her to follow him.

“Our scene got moved dumbass,” Y/N explained.

His eyes widened, but for only a second and began jogging towards her. “Oh, psh. I knew that. Just making sure you knew.”

“Mhm,” she hummed, eyebrows raised. “Well, I’m going take a nap.”

She turned to walk into her trailer when she felt his hand grab her arm. “Come nap with me?” Jensen asked shyly. With a small smile playing on her lips, she nodded her head and followed him to his trailer, hiding like school kids even if their destination was only 30 feet away.

In his living space sat a medium-sized black couch that they fit in perfectly. Y/N giggled and plopped down and Jensen took the open space right next to her. With his arm around her waist, she rested her head on his chest. In no more than 5 minutes passed and they were both softly snoring.


It was around 10:00 when Jared barged in without knocking. “Hey Jay. Have you–,” he cut himself off when he turned to find his fellow castmates cuddling into each other.

“I knew it,” he whispered to himself. For evidential reasons, he took his phone out of his pocket and snapped a few pictures and an idea struck in his head. Walking out of his best friend’s trailer quietly, he giggled and decided to call Y/N instead.

“What’s up, Jare?” she answered groggily.

As much as Jared wanted to blurt it out at that second, he knew he shouldn’t. “We’ve got a scene in 30, okay?” he informed her. “They moved the schedule around again.”

Y/N sighed in aggravation. “Let Jeanie know that I’ll be there in a minute please.”

“Will do, Y/N/N.” He hung up. Oh, this will be good.


Placing a light kiss on Jensen’s forehead, Y/N gathered her things just in case anyone decided to walk into the trailer. Before fully walking out, she popped her head out and looked left and right. Once she knew that she wouldn’t be seen, she walked (well, ran) to the hair and makeup trailer that sat across the parking lot.

She rushed in the door out of breath, so Jeanie and Michelle gave her a confused and shocked look. “You alright there, hun?” Jeanie asked. All Y/N could do was nod. Knowing not to push her buttons, Jeanie patted the back of the chair, signaling her to sit down.

By the time Jeanie and Michelle finished dolling Y/N up, it was almost 10:30. If she wasn’t there at least 5 minutes before, she was going to have a heart attack.

Just as she reached the door ready to bolt to set, Jensen flung the door open. Both of them tried to hide their mischievous looks and act normal.

Jensen stepped back down and held the door open for her to walk out. “Thank you,” she said sheepishly while a blush crept on her cheeks. All Jensen did was smile back at her.

Although she wished she could’ve stayed there and looked at his shy face, she knew that she had a job to do. So with a small wave, she walked away, a little pep in her step.

Jensen stepped into the artificially lit room with still remains of a school-boy smile on his face. The two women who occupied the room faces him with smirks on their faces. As he looked at them, his small smile faded, but not completely.

“What?” he asked not-so-innocently. They both just laughed at him, but didn’t bother to say a word.



 Y/N finally made it on set at exactly 10:31. When she read the numbers on the wall, she could feel her heart start to race.

“Y/N!” she heard Bob yell in her direction. Hurriedly, she made her way to where everyone stood.

Jared was already in his marker ready to go.  He gave her a sly look and she couldn’t figure out why.

Looking back at Bob, she saw some post its in his hands. “Are you okay?” he first asked, noticing how ‘late’ she was. When she gave him a small nod, he continued skeptically, “So we decided we needed to add a quick little sniper to make it a little more dramatic when Finleah ‘leaves’.”. She nodded her head to let him know that she was following, so he continued, “I’m going to have Finleah and Sam kiss. Not long, but enough.”

We have to what? Y/N’s eyes widened at the words her boss spoke to her, but Jared let out a laugh, so she sent him daggered eyes.

“Let’s get going, okay?” Bob said. “We’ll shoot the kiss first, let you guys look at it, and then we’ll finish everything else okay?” Y/N noticed the camera’s looked off, as if they wouldn’t even be filming them in the at the right angle, but she didn’t say anything. She was just an actor, so her opinion was irrelevant. With a hesitant nod towards Bob, Y/N walked over to where Jared was standing and placed herself on her marker. She turned her back to him as the script said and took a second to get into character.

“And, ACTION.”

“Finleah, what are you doing?” asked Jared, his hand on her shoulder.

Y/N began to fake weep, her shoulders jerking slightly. “I can’t do this anymore, Sam. I can’t deal with the constant worry whenever you and Dean leave the bunker that you’ll never come back.”

In the background, the door to the set had opened to reveal Jensen. He took a few quiet steps when he realized that Y/N and Jared were doing a scene, so he decided to stand next to Robert and watch for a few minutes.

Y/N hadn’t noticed him until she turned to face Jared, but she kept up her act. “Sam, I love you and I can’t–” and that’s when Jared cupped Y/N’s cheeks with both of his hands and slammed his lips against hers.

Pushing Jared away, she felt herself begin to breath hard. Of course, she knew she was supposed to kiss back as part of the scene, but she couldn’t bring herself to do it. The man she secretly loved was standing only 20 feet away from her. Jensen took a sharp breath in and Y/N was sure she could hear that sound sound from a mile away.

For the sake of not giving her and Jensen’s relationship away, she said in a low voice, “I’m sorry. I wasn’t paying attention.” She tried to play it off by chuckling lightly.

“That’s alright,” Bob said, patting Jensen on the back. “Let’s go look at the footage anyway.” He waved the three of them over to the huge monitors. Y/N sent him a confused look, but went along with it anyways.

Jeremy sat in front of the monitors and clicked a few buttons before it came up. When Y/N and Jensen saw what was displayed, they both froze like deer in the headlights. Before them was a picture of the two of them sleeping together on his couch from an hour ago.

Y/N turned to see Bob and Jared standing with their arms crossed around their chests and smirks plastered on their faces. “It’s not what it looks like,” Jensen said guiltly, still looking at the screens.

Y/N couldn’t handle it anymore. All the lies and hiding were getting to her and she was over it. “Goddammit,” she muttered and with one swift movement, she turned Jensen around and kissed him. Hard.

Behind them, Jared, Bob, and a few others had gathered to holler and wolf whistle at them.

When she pulled away, Jensen’s jaw clenched in embarrassment. “Y/N, what the–”

“Jensen, shut up and kiss me.”

ignisfatuusdelirante  asked:

Hey Zed I thought you already made a post about this but I can't find it... Do you have a quick like "Do's and Dont's" of taking on commission work? My friend recently started taking commissions (this was a physical commission not digital) and had the person flake out on her. She's trying to set up some ground rules and I was wondering if you had any tips on how to do things professionally and protect your own time investment, etc.

I had one for commissioning people, but here’s one for opening commissions

  • Be prompt. Speed sells well. If you can only draw once a week, when you’re in the absolutely ideal conditions, you’re probably not ready for commissions. Don’t fall into the ‘self-care’ trap. If it takes you more than a month to complete or even start a piece, you probably shouldn’t be taking it as a commission.
  • Don’t take on too much work. On the flipside, take on a reasonable amount of work. Don’t overwork yourself to the point of getting sick. I’ve done this before myself, while other artists around the world have actually died of overwork. Slots are a common way to manage this.
  • Price yourself fairly. Most commissions come because people want art by YOU, not just any piece of art. Don’t price yourself at $5 for 2 hours of work just because someone on Deviantart is doing the same. To determine prices, I usually measure out how long it normally takes me to complete a piece of that quality and average it, then rate myself by an hourly rate based on experience. (For starting out, usually $10 per hour.) 
  • HOWEVER! If you are immensely slow and inefficient, you’ll want to take this into account on your rates. Likewise faster, higher quality work basically warrants a higher hourly rate. It doesn’t make sense to have a $10 per hour rate, take 30 minutes to finish a super detailed high res portrait (like Sakimichan quality), and charge $5 for it, when from a professional studio you would get $500 for that same level of work. (Of course if you’re asking for this advice chances are you don’t need to worry about that quality level yet.) Fast, quality art is not cheap. Cheap, quality art is not fast. Fast, cheap art is not of quality.
  • Take payment up front in some form. This may be taking the whole cost up front, taking payment only after you’ve done a gesture sketch, or providing a super-low-res preview before giving them the image. Do NOT provide the completed product before receiving payment.
  • Use paypal invoices btw. This allows you to prevent people from turning on shipping options, and to make sure you’re not the one slapped with currency conversion fees.
  • Don’t give too many options. I’m guilty of this. It’s a bit over-encumbersome to have ‘sketch’ ‘lineart’ ‘flats’ ‘shaded’ ‘rendered’ ‘extra characters’ ‘backgrounds’ etc. all on your commission sheet. Figure out what range you wanna focus on.
  • Some common starting price ranges a lot of artists use: $10-$15 for lineart, $25-$30 for cel shaded. You can use whatever you feel works for you.
  • If someone tries to persuade you to adjust your prices for them, demeans your art, or starts acting very aggressive with you, you run. Do not take their money.
  • If you don’t have a big following, don’t expect a flood of commissions right away, and don’t be idle between commissions. Do fanart or post other things relevant to what you like to draw. When posting, remember only the first 5 tags count in tumblr’s search, and use that to help you get a bit more notice. You can include a link to your commission info on any art you post as well.
Ways to Cheer Yourself Up (When wanting to be alone) - 50 top things to do
  • 1. Go ON Tumblr, believe it or not, we don't care where you're from, what you do, how you're being you, as long as you are being you, you're pretty much welcomed on here. That's why i love it. Unless of course you are homophobic or judgemental or ignorant - then the people will speak for themselves, we look out for each other here.
  • 2. Read Books; escapism is a wonderful thing
  • 3. Listen to music; and no - not the sad, 'ALL BY MYSELF' type music, but the kickass songs like 'I will Survive' or 'Loser Like Me' just celebrate yourself for being awesome, because we know you are; even if others don't; especially then actually.
  • 4. Become your own superhero. Every single one of you have a talent or a dream. Follow up on that talent/dream. YOU ARE WORTH IT, and you can be whoever you want to be.
  • 5. DISNEY MOVIES. Unless you absolutely hate bursting out into song - better cut of highschool musical and glee while were at this, then Disney is the best pick me up ever.
  • 6. Watch your favourite TV shows. Remind yourself why life can be awesome. Watching your fav characters usually means you can relate to them.
  • 7. Go on walks - it's very pretty outside, and sometimes our heads can be overloaded with information or stress, I advise calming music and a nice walk outside in comfortable clothes.
  • 8. Have a diary. A friend of mine recently bought me one, and it's a godsend because all the anger, or emotions I feel, I try to put in the diary rather than putting it out on others. It also calms you down. I feel better when I write.
  • 9. Speaking of writing...if you enjoy it- WRITE. Writing is a wonderful way to escape. You can put all your emotions into your characters and they just come to life. I tend to do that when I'm stressed.
  • 10. If writing is not your thing then bake. I've actually ironically read in a fan fiction where a character would bake when stressed and try out new recipes, this character tried making butterbeer; maybe be adventurous; have a food blog or something to keep you occupied.
  • 11. Be With Your Pets - Pets are loyal creatures, and they love you, even when you're being a pain in the ass, and I hear they're very good listeners.
  • 12. Now I don't know about you, but I LOVE Musicals. If you are a musical fanatic like me and you're feeling a little down, my dears; listen to those awesome voices, because sometimes we just - need - a break (Also, if you haven't watched RENT, watch it - NODAYBUT TODAY...or Starkid...Starkid make the most funniest musical parodies, even if you don't like musicals I suggest it, and if you're not enjoying their YouTube Channel, then I'll eat my own hat).
  • 13. ASK ME ANYTHING. If you really want to talk to somebody but you don't want to talk to people you know and you just want to get things out, my ASK box is always open.
  • 14. Find a hobby. If you don't really want to talk to anybody, that's okay, sometimes we need to just have some 'me time'. In my me times, I usually deactivate from Facebook, and just focus on things that make me happy. Like; Puzzles, Sudoku, Games, writing, cooking, singing, whatever it is...travelling even. Enjoy yourself.
  • 15. Travel. Maybe being stuck in the same place is the problem, maybe you're head wants to be in a place where it can ACTUALLY THINK.
  • 16. Go Hiking. I suppose Hiking is similar to walking but if you're an outdoor person, this is a great way to clear your head and to feel fresh.
  • 17. Hit The Gym. Or even do your own exercises. I like to walk - do crunches, and I love Zumba. I love dancing. If you love being active, this is also another way to clear your mind from negative things.
  • 18. GO SEE A MOVIE!!! When was the last time you had fun? Even if it's just by yourself. You're allowed to treat yourself. Go, enjoy, be surrounded by people, even if they're strangers.
  • 19. If you like coffee, treat yourself for one at a local cafe. Who knows, you might meet your coffee soulmate in a cafe one day.
  • 20. STOP thinking Negative. Have a Pros/Cons List. Try not to outweight the Pros list with the Cons. Please?
  • You are good enough.
  • 21. Write down a bucket List, and start ticking them off. Having goals and dreams is healthy. If you have dreams, then you have a direction of where you're going.
  • 22. Get help. It's okay, if you're head is in a really bad place to reach out to people. It really is okay.
  • 23. Help others. If you're not sure what to do with yourself at all, be useful to other people less fortunate than you. Volunteer! Work with Charity, Feed the homeless, help the guide dogs association.
  • 24. Smile more. It looks good on you, believe me. Spend time with your guilty pleasures, my guilty pleasure is binge watching glee
  • 25. Please DO NOT go to a pub to drink to ease your mind, if you are going to do that, do it with a friend, or somebody close.
  • 26. Eat Chocolate. Okay yes while society says NO DON'T EAT THE FATTY FOOD. Hey; screw them. If you feel better eating a bit of junk go for it. There's nothing wrong with eating a whole pizza or tub of ben and jerry ice cream when feeling upset - just try not to make TOO much of a habit : p
  • 27. REBLOG YOUR FOLLOWERS POSTS, you might be surprised that you aren't the only one feeling the way you're feeling, you might be surprised by how much you're forgetting that hey - it's gonna be alright.
  • 28. Do something nice for your neighbour. Ah who knows, have you ever actually talked to them? Maybe they might be lonely too.
  • 29. Have a GAMES Night. A very good friend of mine loves Games. If You LOVE Games, then hell have a marathon of them. Play the sims, be in control.
  • 30. Speaking of marathons...dun dun dun - MOVIE MARATHON, I Don't Know About You Guys, But Having A Harry Potter Movie Marathon always cheers me Up. WITH FOOD Of course, and good company, but this is about cheering yourself up, so if you don't want company, that's okay.
  • 31. Draw. I love drawing too. I suppose I'm more of the creative person. There are a lot of different types of people out there, maybe you like solving things - do those fancy cube things Idk what they're called. If you are like my brother and you love Maths, then maybe you can tutor someone. On one hand you're helping someone, and doing something you like doing, just like I'm drawing because I like drawing.
  • 32.Be with kids. believe it or not, kids are the most innocent little munchkins, and they honestly don't care what you look like, if you play hide and seek with them they'll be thrilled, so long as you're nice to them, they're generally nice to you... but be warned, they tell it how it is too. I talk a bit different. The most popular thing they've said to me was "Is that why you talk funny, because of the things in your teeth?" (They've also never really seen braces before) I even had one kid determined to get me to sing 'Everything is awesome' I'll never forget that because this kid clearly didn't care how I sounded, and just wanted me to sing with her. I felt great.
  • 33. If you're into Fairy Tales, Please Please Read Chris Colfer's The Land Of Stories series 1-4. It's an amazing series, and you almost forget what world you're in once you start reading. Plus, there's more coming (I'm a little excited)
  • 34. Watch Pixar Movies. You can't go wrong.
  • 35. GO TO HOGWARTS. Harry Potter Fan? Visit - Platform 9 3/4s in London, or go to the Harry Potter World, or if you can't actually visit these sites, go on Pottermore.
  • 36. Read Fan Fiction, you might not be a harry potter fan, but whatever fandom you are in, believe me sometimes Fan Fictfion Cheer me up. I adore Glee *Don't Judge Me* and Dalton is the best thing ever. Or Little Numbers...or Both. They cheer me up big time.
  • 37. Role play. If you like superheroes or characters, go be with the crowd. I believe they have events like Comic Con, and on Facebook they even have Events for such things, go be with strangers! So long as it's safe of course.
  • 38. Write a letter to the person who inspires you most and send it. You might be surprised by an answer.
  • 39. Pick up your instrument. Don't ignore your musical talent if you do have a musical talent. Remember, you're worth it. I don't care what you've done. Pick, It Up.
  • 40. Maybe go visit your family? I know this is about 'quality me time' but if you haven't seen your family in such a long time or are at a distance. Maybe being surrounded by something familiar is what you need.
  • 41. Change Careers. If you're not enjoying what you're doing or studying, change it. I remember in highschool a teacher said you might change your job 10 - 12 times before getting it right. It'okay, you just haven't found where you're meant to be yet.
  • 42. Enter a competition - Who knows what will come from it, take risks.
  • 43. If you're a risk-taker, challenge yourself. IDK how you're going to do that, but google has some pretty good answers. Even ask your tumblr followers, they follow you for a reason after all.
  • 44. Go on a boat. Go Fishing! I don't know, it's not my thing, but if you like fishing, then hell - go out there and fish.
  • 45. Find time for yourself, are you working too much? Maybe you are working too much. You know life doesn't stop for nobody, and if you keep pushing yourself so hard, time will go so fast and you won't realise how much of that time you could have spent on your own self.
  • The world is not going to end if you treat yourself.
  • 46. You ARE Good Enough. Listen to my words. Sometimes encouragement is all we need, when people feel hopeless, or like everything's gone wrong. It's gonna be okay. I promise, just hang in there.
  • 47. Write Down Quotes that Inspire You. I have a wall of these, and of people that inspire me too, and it reminds me of the good things in life when I'm in a crappy mood.
  • 48. Find something to do. If you're not doing anything, go take up a course, research things that interest you, you might be surprised by what comes from it. Join a community that enjoys doing things you do.
  • 49. Go To The Beach - If you live in Australia like me, visiting the beach is actually really calming and me and my best friend always would go on a random drive, and drive up to a beach or a look out, and it was always calming. Enchanting too sometimes. Maybe we forget about the place we live in, and what's exciting about the place. If you're in New York, visit Broadway or The Statue Of Liberty, or if you're in London, go to the London Bridge, or the Eye, visit the Eiffel Tower if you're in Paris...just go Anywhere.
  • 50. Take a random journey. Go on a train to somewhere new, go on a road trip. You never know what's around the corner.

anonymous asked:

how do you normally write your dialogue? I always get caught up in the 'she said with a frown' and 'he muttered with an uneasy look in his eyes' that the dialogue seems to lose its substance. Just wondering how you avoid this problem :)

The best advice I’ve heard about writing dialogue is to stick with the word “said” and leave it at that. It gets distracting for the reader if you’re using unnecessary dialogue tags like “he muttered,” “she screamed,” “he explained.” When most of us read dialogue, we only pay attention to what’s actually inside the quotation marks + the name that follows it so we know who to assign it to. So focus on strengthening what you have inside those quotation marks. If you do it well enough, you shouldn’t have to explain to the reader that someone says something “with a frown.” The reader should be able to figure it out because you’ll have Mary say something to Jim like, “It’s eight o’clock. You said you would be home by 6:30.” (Do we need a dialogue tag of ‘she said angrily’ or ‘she said with a frown’ to know Mary is upset with Jim?)

Aside from that, I just really focus on trying to capture a character’s unique voice. The way a character speaks can encompass their whole world view, their personality, their power dynamics with other people, etc. You never want a character to say something bland like “I”m hungry.” Um…okay…so what? Everyone gets hungry, but what does “I’m hungry” show me about who you are? 

If this was HNITS, here’s how Hannah’s friends would convey they’re hungry: 

  • “Y’all, if I don’t get a 24-ounce ribeye into my stomach in the next five minutes, none of us are gonna be happy.” - Clay. Notice he addresses the whole group and extends his hunger beyond himself (which gives you a sense of power dynamics, but also shows that Clay feels his well-being to be very intertwined with his friends). He talks about ‘getting’ food rather than making it, which tells you something about his worldview. He mentions ribeyes because they communicate his desire to be manly/alpha. Getting carrots into his stomach wouldn’t have the same effect.
  • “Anyone have a horse handy? ‘Cause I could totally eat one right now.” - Luke. He’s quirky and silly. He frames his hunger around a random/absurd question, followed quickly by the punchline, because he wants to amuse his friends. He views himself as the funny one of the group. 
  • “I’m fine, promise. I’ll just make something when we get home. Or maybe I’ll pick us up some hash browns from Zeeland…if you’re good.” - Baker. Notice she’s replying to someone asking if she’s hungry (Hannah) rather than announcing it herself, because Baker never wants to inconvenience or infringe on anyone. ‘Promise’ softens the first line and is probably something only a girl would say. ‘When we get home’ conveys that she considers Hannah in everything (’we’) and feels comfortable referring to either her house or Hannah’s house as ‘home’ when they’re going there together. “I’ll pick us up some hash browns” shows again that she considers Hannah in everything. She also mentions a place they both love. The last part, “…if you’re good,” reveals her teasing side and shows you even more about her dynamic with Hannah (you wouldn’t tease ‘if you’re good’ to someone you didn’t have an intimate friendship/relationship with). 
  • “I am literally going to faceplant on this sidewalk if I don’t get some food soon. How much longer ‘til we get there?” -Joanie. She exaggerates, she uses teenage girl colloquial language, she’s specific with her humor (faceplant sounds funnier than faint). The second line, where she asks how much longer, shows you something about power dynamics: Joanie assumes someone else has taken responsibility for knowing the way. The question reinforces her identity as the youngest one/more powerlessness one in the group. She’s putting her trust in her older friends. 
  • “I can wait, I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s hungry. I’ll just make everybody grilled cheeses when we get back.” - Wally. Like Baker, he has to be asked if he’s hungry, because he’s not going to complain about it and make it the group’s problem. The second line shows he’s always trying to keep a pulse on his friends because he feels a responsibility for everyone’s well-being (which tells you something about his personality and his family life). Contrary to Clay, Wally mentions ‘making’ food rather than ‘getting it,’ which reveals his position in the world, and he pledges to make food for all of his friends, which shows you how much he cares about them. 
Comic Milestone

Happy weekend, everyone!

You guys know I’ve been super excited to get this last batch of pages out to you for a really long time, especially since the comic took that four-week hiatus between releases. Well, pages are going up as we speak, and you guys have not disappointed in your response! You’ve been loving these pages so far, and that just tickles me and makes me incredibly grateful for the chance and for all of you.

HOWEVER: y’all remember when I posted this post quite a while ago, back in June actually, saying that I had a dream that one of my pages got 30 reblogs? Today, it finally happened. This sounds like a silly little goal or crazy low ambition for something I have dedicated to much work and heart into, but for me, it’s literally a dream coming true. And not only that, but this week we have seen an EXPLOSION in notes and followers.

This - 

- is how many notes we’ve gotten just in the past 7 days, 162 of which were from the first day the comic came back, also the day we hit 400 followers. And this -

- is how many followers we’ve gotten in the last week. You see that huge spike? That was all just last night. We got 15 followers in one night, people. Imagine waking up to that this morning!

Needless to say, this blog has absolutely EXPLODED these last five days, and that is ALL thanks to you guys. Your reblogs and shares and questions are what has helped this comic get out there and into people’s hands and in front of their eyeholes, getting the notes and gaining the new followers. So Mod and I both owe a HUGE thanks to each and everyone of you. There is no way we could have done this without you guys.

That being said, I want everyone to take time to celebrate over this weekend. I will be doing another livestream Sunday night at 6:30 EST (normal upload time) over on my twitch channel, and you are each and all invited. (I might do another smaller one before then if I get bored but who knows what will happen.) I’ll be posting about it with a link come Sunday so you lovelies can come and chill and draw along with me.

Side note: our last stream was super fun. Mod told us all a hilarious story, I gave away a few exclusive secrets about the story’s past and development, and was offered but several different firstborns as children sacrifices for it? So if you’re able, be sure to come and join us!

I’ve rambled enough so far, so I just want to thank everyone for your time, continued support, and dedication to this project. Many of you are just as passionate about this comic as I am, and that’s just incredible. I can’t wait until next summer! Until then -

My weekend, in a nutshell:

-I had to work on Saturday, which was OK by me. I was already on OT by 8am on friday anyway. The great thing about it is that I get to buy a new phone and glasses with the overtime, which honestly makes me very happy. My right eye has decided that Karma along with the rest of this faulty equipment I call my human body, that it’s going to make clear vision difficult too! Oh joy……

- so I hired a PR person. She is absolutely awesome, and I’m very happy that I have somebody working for me who has my best interest in mind when it comes to my musical career. But that being said, I had to do a bunch of headshots and other pictures this weekend. I think of all the things that I have to do in my quest to get my music out there, I hate having my picture taken the most. It’s very difficult for me to even look at a single picture of myself and say that I like the way that I look. And I get that, most people don’t like the way that they look in photographs. But every time that I look at a photograph, all the voices comeback in my head telling me that I look like hell, and will always look like hell. then I have to go through all of these photographs that were taken and try not to look at them with what I call the shit filter. There were a ton more than these, but I hated them.

Hated.

My PR person loved them, but I couldn’t stand them. I looked at myself and couldn’t see any of the discipline that has taken me down 35 lbs. I couldn’t see anything there, and being that yesterday was a planned cheat day (I wanted Chinese food), I felt so guilty even eating it. I’m a mess, no wonder I’m single.

- the beer on saturday night was truly delicious, you have no idea. I passed out messaging @starrysky0612, and I looked back on my last transmission and its like, “dude, you were drunk.” Thank God drunk me just wants to listen to music….

- other than the self-loathing and drunkenness, I did have a nice weekend. I’m glad that all of the people who I follow in Texas are okay after Hurricane Harvey. I joked to one of my Texans who’s not on here that apparently an invisible giant White Rabbit could do some damage after all… And she was the only person to get that joke. Am I that old, or is it just that I’ve seen one too many Jimmy Stewart movies?

This is the kind of stuff that keeps me awake at 11:30 on a Sunday night, when I have to be up at 4:45am for work on Monday.

Anyhow, I hope you guys have a good week. My musical week is going to be awesome, I already know it, but damn if I could only get my head together. Any advice and suggestions would be helpful.

Soulmate AU Prompt #30- Each person has a spirit animal that can lead you to your soulmate

Asui Tsuyu:

  • Her spirit animal is a frog (Don’t fight me on this XD)
  • Everyone’s spirit animal has been with them since birth, but will only show you to your soulmate as a certain time
  • Her frog spirit starts acting up one day and Tsu worries what could have gotten into it.
  • It takes off down the street when she’s walking home one day, and not wanting to lose her spirit animal, Tsu follows it.
  • She loses it in a park and is searching the under brush for her frog. it’s starting to get dark and she doesn’t want to be here for long but she can’t leave her spirit animal alone
  • When pushes past a large amount of shrubbery and comes across someone sitting and drawing on a notepad in the middle of the forested area.
  • They haven’t noticed her, so Tsu tries to move on to not disturb them, but then she sees that this mysterious person is sketching out her frog.
  • She spots her frog sitting on a log across from the person and realizes the reason she was brought here was to meet her soulmate.
    • She’s a bit nervous to say hello, but knows that she has to! It’s her soulmate right in front of her after all
  • Just as she’s about to speak up a small hedgehog comes and rubs it’s neck against her ankles.
    • The small creature appeared very happy to see her
    • Tsu smiles down at the little thing and picks it up, watching as it nuzzles into her hands
  • She’ll walk forward and kneel down in front of her soulmate.
    • “Is this your spirit animal?”
    • “H-Huh? O-Oh.. yes it is. I assume the frog is yours?”
  • Their bashfulness is very cute to her and she laughs at their shyness.
    • “I’m Tsu.”
    • “(Name)”
  • The two of you spend time walking back home together afterwards and having light and polite conversation.
  • Tsu glances through her S/O’s drawings and is impressed by how good they look and how gifted they are!
    • “You’re really talented, ribbit.”
    • “Wah? No I just doodle for fun.”
  • She exchanges numbers when they have to separate, but promise to meet up again soon.
    • Her S/O needs to finish that drawing of her frog after all
    • Plus Tsu thinks her S/O is the cutest thing in the entire world!
