where do they do that at

If you don’t download the STARZ app, Technical Boy will think you’re fucking with him.

I HAD AN IDEA! ATTENTION ALL XNTPS OR OTHERS WILLING TO DEAL WITH OUR CRAP!

We need to start some kind of huge xNTP chat thing where we all send each other memes at night because most of us honestly never sleep anyway, lol. Or just send them during the day. I don’t care.

**NOTE: This isn’t just limited to xNTPs, anyone can do this too. It just seems like something xNTPs would be more likely to join.

What did you think of Jack? And do you still headcanon Lena as a lesbian or do you see her as bi? I always love hearing your opinions on these things.

I admit that it took some time for me to be convinced of Jack’s good and loving intentions surrounding Lena. This is because she originally referred to him as her kryptonite and admitted that being around him would cause painful feelings to resurface. Never a good sign. I had a feeling from the beginning that he was not exclusively involved in all of the dark occurrences surrounding Biomax only because I remembered the original synopsis about Beth Breen. Jack came across as intelligent and charming but it wasn’t until dinner when I started to feel ok about him.

I really like the way they handled the story of Lena’s previous relationship with him and her receptiveness and hesitation with him re-entering her life. Of course my heart broke for her because of the decision she had to make and what she had to do.


As far as Lena’s sexual orientation, I originally headcanoned her as a lesbian, but with the introduction of Jack, my hc was no longer strict. I am open to her being bisexual so I usually just say wlw now for inclusive purposes. But a big part of me still wants to say she is a lesbian. Of course there are women that identify as lesbian but previously dated men. In my mind, despite sexual orientation, it is still possible to develop feelings of love and give in to the idea of being loved in return. I think it is safe to say a lot of us have been there.


Lena struggles with feelings of abandonment so when she has someone that loves her and believes in her and that person happens to be someone that she can relate to on such a strong level, maybe it is easy for her to love him as well. Maybe it isn’t everything she truly wants in a relationship, but many of the important factors are there. So after years of not feeling like she is able to truly connect to someone, when she finds Jack, she just lets it happen. She’s content. But maybe there was still something that was always missing. Maybe the painful memories aren’t just that he made her choose, that he didn’t make room for everything her life entailed, or that everything she thought she felt or tried to make herself feel was a waste of time.

Maybe the pain she feels is also guilt because when it ended, part of her felt relieved. She felt relief over the idea of after those years with him, she was finally free. She didn’t have to pretend anymore. Maybe she could move on and find someone that knew and appreciated her for all that she was. Not only Lena Luthor, but just Lena. Not only what everyone thought they knew or what is on the surface, but what is inside – who she really is. I imagine she found that in Kara and her instant connection with Kara and willingness to open up so quickly speaks volumes of that.

But Lena still has that fear. She is terrified that maybe one day, Kara will leave or be taken away as well. Maybe Kara doesn’t feel the same way. Maybe she can’t have the woman she really wants. Perhaps she should give things with Jack another go because when she had him, at least she had someone. Someone that knew her with the good and the bad and still cared. Someone that found out the worst but came back anyway and wants another chance. Nobody has ever come back and asked for another try. Lena thinks that maybe he deserves one. Maybe she can be okay with settling for the quasi-happiness she had before. Maybe she can keep her secret if it means someone accepting most of her, because other than Kara, who else would? Who could ever truly love a Luthor? So she tries. She lets herself fall in love with love again. She falls in love with the idea of Jack and what he is willing to give her.

But it was a mistake. As soon as she let herself love him, he was gone – taken from her because of a choice she had to make. So there it is, another person she loved cruelly taken away to the evil in this world. She will have to bear that burden and it hurts but she isn’t surprised because it is always the same. Maybe it’s a sign, though? At least she has Kara. Kara, who believes in her, fights for her, and vows to protect her. Kara who sees beyond the surface. At least she can still love her even if she can’t have her. Maybe that will change someday? And maybe if it does, Kara will actually be the one that stays.

hey there! just wanted to ask; is there any advice you can give to independent artists on how to gain more exposure/larger audience? what kind of methods can you recommend or what has worked for you?

Yo! Right off the bat, i’m gonna say one good method of gaining more exposure would probably be putting your work out into whatever fandoms your into. It gives you a pretty decent boost when it comes to getting your stuff out there and noticed by more people! (more points if it’s something not well known probably because if ur like me and are into obscure shit chances are you’re not gonna find much in the tags AND YA GOTTA DO EVERYTHING YAHSELF which can double the chance of getting attention drawn to your stuff👍 i can guarantee u there are people like me who look through the tags and see barely any content and are like!!! where y’all at!!!!! feed me that Good Shit ™ blease… ) 

Do trades and gift art for people (who are alright with it!) People sometimes post the stuff they get into their galleries or will reblog/retweet it which helps get your name out there! As always, continuing to put yourself and your works (fandom and/or original works) out there is the key to getting an audience I think. It’s easy to get disheartened when people don’t give you much notice, but you also won’t get noticed if you don’t post often, if at all. Being an active member of a community I feel is essential for getting yourself out there!! Combine that with doing trades and gifts (or requests if you can handle it), tossing in some fanart or taking part in some memes (like the fursona ones that have been going around twitter) are a good recipe i’ve seen to getting noticed more~!

HOPE THIS HELPS!!! and was coherent dskdfslf. To be honest i’m crap at explaining this because I don’t have much experience with this kinda thing because I never really intended for my art to get as popular as it has and I always have just..drawn what i’ve wanted and shared it with people?? and they’ve liked what I put out so I GUESS I DID SOMETHING RIGHT LMAO. Sometimes simplicity is the best approach and u just gotta do u and you’ll be surprised at the audience you get from just that! But there is absolutely no harm in using fandoms as a bit of a stepping stone to help yourself get into the right direction if that’s what you’re aiming for!

this weekend i read a lot of asimov (good) and attempted to write (bad)

weirdly the only scene that survived is this one where victor talks to minako

——

Yuuri Katsuki had a beautiful mouth.

Viktor thought about it often, his first weeks in Hasetsu, and watched it nearly as much. The marks had faded months ago from under his jaw, but every time he remembered, he could almost feel the twin pinpricks, Yuuri’s weight heavy on his lap. It was enough to drive anyone to distraction.

Only, Yuuri didn’t touch him again.
