which made me feel so proud

BTS’ ‘Spring Day’ is used in today’s episode of SBS ‘The Its Know’「Sewol Ferry, returning after 3 year - Will hope rise up again?」

It’s the only song as well as idols’ song to be used, not including instrumental background music. ‘The Its Know’ is an investigation program, covering unsolved mysteries as well as hidden stories. Today’s episode is dedicated to Sewol Ferry disaster, as tomorrow, April 16th, marks 3 full years since the disaster which took away 304 lives, with 9 people still remaining missing.

I LOVED THIS EPISODE SO MUCH
in tweek x craig, it seemed like they became a couple more because it made the public happy, which really made me question if they actually love each other romantically or not. this episode proved that they’ve managed to develop romantic feelings and aH i’m so proud of them. craig calling tweek “babe” and “honey”?? sign me the fuck up, thanks. also, heiman isn’t dead?? i don’t know how i feel about that. trey and matt must have something planned if they made them get back together, so i can’t wait to see where that goes :’) garrison’s tweets were hilarious, and the animation has improved a lot?? also kenny fucking died thank the lord the old south park is slowly returning.
i’m rating this ep 10/10, i loved it so much 💓

Lance Week- Friends/Comfort

I’m combining yesterday’s and today’s prompts because I totally didn’t forget. Not at all. *smiles nervously*

Read the first part to this here.

Lance didn’t see the door of Blue’s hangar slide open.

He didn’t hear the footsteps as they approached, soft as they were.

And he barely felt the light nudging of his shoulder that ultimately ending up waking him; eyes blinking groggily as he lifted his head.

“Lance.”

His mind was slow to register the voice, much less identify who it belonged to, but as Lance rubbed the sleep from his eyes, neck stiff from the position it had been in, he realized who it was that was standing before him.

“Keith?”

And then it all came flooding back in.

“Keith, sorry,” he said hastily, ashamed he had been caught sleeping in such dire times. The last thing he wanted was for the red paladin to think he didn’t care about finding Shiro. He hadn’t meant to doze off at all in the first place, but after coming to the realization that both his families were broken, his hollowness had manifested into tears; draining him of any and all remaining energy, until he had passed out curled up on Blue’s paw.

He made to get down, but Keith stopped him by placing a hand gently on his lower calf, keeping him in place.

“No, it’s alright.” He sounds so defeated… “I was just-we were just,” he corrected, “wondering where you went.”

How long was I out for?

“Oh,” he said instead, noticing Keith had yet to move his hand. “Yeah, I just needed some time to think.”

Keith sighed heavily, staring down at the ground.

“Don’t we all.”

Lance could feel the pain in his words; knew that, of all of them, Keith knew Shiro the best, undoubtedly liked Shiro the best, and to lose him twice now was just a cruel joke.

But he’s not lost, just temporarily misplaced. We’ll find him.

But Lance couldn’t bring himself to say those words, and he doubted Keith would want to hear them anyways, having already been subjected to a multitude of reiterations of that very phrase.

Like he had said before, Keith was a man of action.

And then a thought occurred to him.

Magic the Gathering Rarities: Celebration Card Trinity on Trade Group

A few weeks ago, I came across something extraordinary in the local trader community, and today, I thought it would be best to share my experience and knowledge of what I saw that day.

Under ordinary circumstances, I wouldn’t be mentioning a post from another trade group. However, something like this is another landmark in MTG history, second only to the 1996 World Champion Trophy and sale for the original art, it deserves to be shared, and these stories should be known by everybody.


This is Raphael Puleo. He runs a humble MTG store known as Magic Bazar in France. He’s also the proud owner of 3 of the world’s rarest and richest pieces of MTG history, spanning back to the beginning of this game.

In his hand, he holds a copy of Splendid Genesis, Fraternal Exaltation, and Proposal. To many, these are names that are vague, even unknown. However, try to understand that three cards are an infinitely important part of Magic The Gathering History, as these are the three cards that Richard Garfield created to celebrate various periods in his life. Make no mistake, these cards are well worth more than Power 9 (Excluding Alpha/Beta Lotuses), and the stories behind each of them are incredibly touching.

I’m also going to explain why Proposal appears to be covered up later on, since some people might ask.


Splendid Genesis

Of the existing celebration cards in MTG, Splendid Genesis is probably the most well-known card, having been listed on eBay and seen in auction houses a number of times over the years. Printed to commemorate the birth of his first child, only 110 copies were ever made and sent out to incredibly close friends and well known employees at Wizards. It was also drawn by Monique Thirifay (an early WotC employee), and to date, is the only card she has ever produced. The card effect is also wholesome and makes me feel happy.

For this card alone, the current market value is an estimated $10,000, which is an amazing price to behold, but probably worth it for something so unique.

Fun fact, Mark Rosewater is also a proud owner of one of these, if my information is correct, which makes a lot of sense.


Fraternal Exaltation

Fraternal Exaltation was a card done in the same fashion, printed to commemorate the birth of Garfield’s second child. However, the amount released this time around was 220, a significant increase, and perhaps a sign of Wizards increasing growth as a company? Or Garfield had more friends, who knows.

This card however, was drawn by Susan Garfield, Richards sister and for me, personally, owning a celebration card drawn by your own sibling is far more amazing than just another Black Lotus.

Given that the print run for this card was significantly larger, the price is lower as a result, but prices still range from $3-$5,000, with those copies having been sold out already.

And of course, comes the best for last.


Proposal

What follows is one of my favorite romance stories and the most feelgood MTG tale I’ve ever heard.

In October 1993, Garfield enlisted the aid of Dave Howell, and the late Quinton Hoover to create a unique and special card. Using this one of a kind piece, Richard was going to propose to his then-girlfriend, Lily Wu.

All together, a single sheet of 9 cards were produced, with one being used for a very special game:

“According to Richard, he put just put one in the all-white deck he was playing. As luck would have it, the first three games the pair played, he didn’t draw the card. He did finally find it in the fourth game, but was losing. At one point, Lily asked if he wanted to concede because, as a playtester, she didn’t think any card he could play would allow him to win. Shortly after, Richard played the now-famous card” ~ MTG Librarities

So, they did get married, and the 8 remaining copies were sent to family memebers, and Dave and Quinton. Unfortunately, Quinton’s copy was stolen at some point, but it has been verified that this is not that copy.

The most unique thing about this card, is that Richard and Lily told all of the owners never to reveal the original artwork to preserve the memory. That image up there? It’s not the actual art, it has never been revealed to this day, and because of that, it is the greatest mystery in MTG history (there’s another fake image out there too). Hence why Ralph has it covered up. As a result, it’s no surprise that the only copy currently being sold is being offered at an astounding $35,000.

I could build a vintage deck with that kind of money. A good one too….


Altogether, the three cards are being sold off for a staggering $55,000. But for 2 cards that barely register in the 3 digit population, and another with just 9 copies in existence, and with all 3 of these being such an important part of MTG history, the price tag is well deserving. It’s still a shame though, that we’ll never see the original art for Proposal, but perhaps its best to keep it unique like this…..

I hope you all enjoyed the wonderful story behind these cards, and hope you’ll retell it to other players as well.

If you wish to check out the original listing, feel free to check out the Misprints, Oddities, Rarities for Magic the Gathering Facebook group. There’s always something amazing being listed there.

The second chapter of my fic Heart Issues of the Non-Medical Sort is up on my AO3 for all of those who’ve been patiently waiting for a continuation.

About the fic: short, light-hearted, angst-free, hopefully funny, warm and full of pining.

Excerpt:

Malfoy put the cup to his mouth and inhaled deeply before taking a sip. When the mug tipped and the taste of coffee finally filled his mouth he moaned. Loudly. Unashamedly. Completely scandalously if Harry had any say in it.

Abruptly, it felt as if all his senses centred only in the parts of his body that were pressing against the warmth beside him. There was nothing else about his environment he could feel except the gentle press of thighs, the soft jab of an elbow against his upper arm, the uncomfortable tingling under his skin.

Malfoy stopped sipping his coffee and froze as if he too had just realised how intimately close they were. Harry was sure he was staring directly at Malfoy’s wet lips and this was about to become really, really weird real quick if he didn’t do something right away.

So, he fake sneezed.

Jughead x Reader

An unlikely pairing, that starts with good intentions, but… is it match made in heaven or a match that was just made to burn?

Warnings: Not everything can have a happy ending. (Swearing, Fighting.)

Word count: 3,148

A/N: I just got done watching 13 Reasons Why and feel a bit melodramatic so this happened. I did it more for a storyline and less for cute moments. I hope you all still enjoy it.  I tried first person with this one, please give me feedback on which point of view you like my writing in best: 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. The narrative switches from flashback to current day, hope it’s not too confusing. Ps i’m very proud of this.


I’ve been thinking about those words ever since I walked out of school today.

High School Sweetheart

The definition: Jughead and I.

Or at least, it was.

As I walk home, holding everything in, I try not to think about it, but I can’t help it.

How I met the boy that ruined me in all the best and worst ways.

I met him at the Drive-In, a few weeks after my dad and I moved to Riverdale to start anew in the fall of my freshman year, after my mom passed away, I remember it clear as day.

Not A Kid Anymore. (Mingyu Smut)

heeeyy guys, so i know, if you’ve seen my post then you’ll know that this is a re-post. so all my works on my original account will be reposted here. (even though i only got 2 posts lol) so yeah, this is not plagiarized guys, okay? :) okay. ily x i know there are a lot of you who are silent readers mehe 


It’s been 3 years since you’ve last seen the boys. You had to go to the states because of work, originally, you had been a trainee at PLEDIS with the boys, also wanting to debut in the future but you had obviously had found better opportunities as a stylist. You and the boys were quite well known back in the days because of your amazing friendship. You and the boys have been nothing but supportive towards each other, but considering you were older (24) they still had that respect towards you. You’ve been with them long enough to be able to talk informally, but of course, they are just really nice kids, you could say you’ve been with them through thick and thin, but never really lost contact.That was until a year and a half ago, when they finally (after years of training) had their own program, 17 Project. That was when their schedule was too busy, and eventually you lost contact with them. But you didn’t mind at all, you were still able to them on TV.

phancy-phandom  asked:

dan talking about mental health and considering making some videos about it.... :") wow

What do u think abt what dan said on making a vid on mental health?

i love how it was so apparent that he would treat a video like that with so much care. i have often advocated for him (and phil) to use the platform they have to do more good, to raise awareness about things they (or dan at least) clearly care and think about but choose to rarely (or never) discuss. so it was really lovely to hear dan be a little more open about his own hesitations and insecurities around doing that, and especially in the context of mental health. it really humanized him further for me, to hear him say he’d be afraid of getting something wrong or of not doing it in the right way or coming across as attention-seeking for discussing mental health at all. while my instinct was to think that he’s wrong, that there are plenty of ways for him to be a bit more open about mental health without misinforming or drawing unwanted attention. (and also throwback to phil at the edinburgh panel talking about how if even just one person is helped by a video on anxiety then making that video is worth it), it was a really big deal for me to just hear dan use the word ‘scary’ when thinking about it. i felt like i gained a lot of perspective on the position he’s in when it comes to creating content on topics like this, because while i still believe the good that he could do would outweigh these hangups he has, hearing him talking about being afraid also helped me to understand that his decisions don’t have to be the result of a pure cost-benefit analysis like that, and that, tbh, no human being’s decisions ever really are? your emotions (and for dan in this case the emotion at hand is fear/anxiety) are always at risk of dominating or taking precedence in your decision-making, even if there’s rational motive to do something. so to hear him admit to being afraid .. that was just so significant. 

overall though it was a really lovely little answer and just so nice to hear him continue the theme of many live shows this year, which have been characterized by a brand new openness around his mental health. he didn’t try to distance himself from the topic and rather made it pretty clear that a video on mental health is something he could make bc he does deal with mental health issues himself. that made me feel super fucking proud of him. 

have you guys read this article https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/feb/01/we-stand-together-against-donald-trump-toxic-agenda 

i’m so incredibly proud of dan for this? for putting his name out there and publicly standing up for whats right alongside all these other musicians and comedians and mp’s. i think this is implying that dans going to be at the protest as well which will honestly be so great to see?? i’m so glad he’s doing this publicly and putting action behind his words

Gwenpool #16 might hit too close to home for some people. The issue is that Gwen’s brother has found a way to get her back to her reality and make her forget about all her adventures and is blocking things that could remind her. And it’s…kinda depressing. Gwen’s life is…oh you see above. No friends, stuck in situation where she can not get a job that current economy has built, inability to make it successful through her hobbies, parents nagging her about everything (know this one too well - get a job and not even a week they’ll start nagging you that it’s not a good enough and paying enough job and demand you change it because they’re looking just for an easy and quick solution how to “fix” you)… It made me feel really bad for her, okay? Which is why I was so happy to see that last page. No, not the one with big “The End” letters, this one

Grant Morisson would be proud.

Alright, so I found out something weird today that has really unsettled me and I just needed to say something. (I want to preface with I’m not mad at the person who did this, ok so—)

Today I found out that ‘call me beep me’, a voltron fanfic I wrote, has been listed on Goodreads. After I laughed for a few seconds at the absurdity of a fic I wrote being my first piece of work on Goodreads, I started to feel a really horrible sinking feeling in my stomach. My first piece of work on Goodreads, under the name I want to when (if) I become a published author, is a fanfic. A fanfic I adored writing but a fanfic that is also not professionally edited not anywhere near the professional publishing standards I would expect from a book listed on Goodreads.

And then I realised that cmbm wasn’t the first fanfic of mine that has been added to Goodreads, but one I’d written earlier and am nowhere near as happy or proud with. So I click through that profile and there’s a comment from someone insulting my writing which - fair enough, reviewers are entitled to that but my fics aren’t professionally edited and published pieces of work. Goodreads is largely a space for published books that have been professionally edited so to have my writing picked apart on held onto the same pedestal as actually edited and published work when it is clearly nowhere near that standard and never should’ve thrown in the same league…just made me feel so bad.

And what’s worse is that nobody even asked my permission to list those works on Goodreads. Please don’t do that guys. I’m sure there are fanfic authors who won’t mind having their fics listed on Goodreads, and I’m happy for them, but there are also plenty of us who do. And I’m one of them. I don’t want my unedited work I wrote for fun listed under my name on a site where one day I kind of want to have a for real published book. It’s not a good look.

Anyway, like I said, I’m not mad at whoever did it, I doubt they even gave it a second thought, but please…if you’re even thinking about listing a fic writers work on a website they haven’t already posted their work…at least have the decency to ask them.

Snog Me Senseless 2

A/N:  Snog Me Senseless was supposed to be a one shot, but then I got more requests for a part 2.  So I combined SMS part 2 with this request.  I can picture parts 3 and 4 already, but only if people really want them.  Let me know what you think please!  I’m not going to mark this as NSFW, but it is sweetly smutty in its own way.  

As always, a HUGE thank you to my betas, @little-black-dress-24,  @niallandharrymakemestrong and @emulateharry.  I consider myself blessed every day to have landed in this supportive community of writers. Next time for sure, @melissas173!!!

You sigh as Harry’s lips gently part yours, and your hands reach to wrap around his neck, pulling his mouth closer to yours as you slide your tongue along his. He’s wrapped his left arm around your waist, and he’s leaning into you, using his slight height advantage to bend your head back as he deepens the kiss. Your emotions are swirling.  

It had only been a week since the frat party where you first learned to snog, and you had been practicing every day since with Harry.  Whereas his tongue had felt foreign inside your mouth the first time, you now relished the times when he kissed you like this, breathing through your respective noses to prolong the amount of time you could stay attached to each other.  It was nearly lunchtime, and Harry’s stomach was growling.  You hear the rumble and giggle a bit as you manage to move the gum he’s been chewing into your mouth as you end the kiss.

Character: Elena Alvarez 

From: One Day at a Time (2017) 

Representation: Lesbian, Cuban

Their Importance: Elena is a feminist, lesbian, and social justice warrior and is outspoken about all three. She is consistently pointing out misogynistic issues, and can be incredibly passionate when talking about problems in society, which I very much appreciate as I can be the same way. 

What I relate to most about Elena is the fact that she cannot speak Spanish, but is still very proud of her culture. While I’m not Cuban, I am someone who loves her culture but doesn’t understand her parent’s language. Seeing Elena struggle in the same way made me happy - the show only briefly touched on her not understanding Spanish, but I often feel like I’m bad for not understanding my parent’s language, so to see a character also struggle with understanding their culture’s language made me feel much better. Also, just seeing Elena being so young and yet understanding and fighting for social justice and feminism is awesome to see. 

Thanks to @starklinqs for the write up!

Inspired by this scene from the anime Gintama HERE

Ever since I got into Underswap and saw how some drew Papy smoking cigarettes and some where he just had a lollipop instead, immediately made me think of that scene from Gintama which you can watch on the link above, and I just had to draw it! xD and damn I am pretty proud of how it all turned out, had such problems drawing a bunch of stuff but eventually succeeded in the end!

Omfg I still can’t believe I began and finished the last five of these pictures today, it took me like 10 or so hours, frick I feel pretty damn woozy, no more working on art today! But this was such great practice for me to draw and finish stuff faster so I have no regrets whatsoever!

Enjoy anyway~

For all artist beginners out there, desperate about their skills, 

I published my very first digital drawing done with a tablet on January 12th 2016. It was the first real drawing I completed, since I never really drew in my life. Now we’re on February 28th 2017, and I’m publishing a drawing which I’m very proud of, even if it’s not a big deal. I made progress in one year, and I can feel it, even if it’s slow. 

So don’t give up, and keep drawing what you like, at the pace you like. You can only improve :)

This is Blue, my aunt’s fish. He is well liked, but was unfortunately not well looked after due to ignorance.

He used to live in a 1 gallon bowl, but my aunt had the sense to know he needed something bigger. She bought a 3 gallon tank off me when I upgraded Nova to a 5 gallon tank. He also got a heater when my cousin bought one.

However, she thought that since it had a filter, she didn’t need to clean the tank often. Poor Blue’s tank was filthy when she brought him to my house to look after him for 2 weeks while she went on vacation.

In those two weeks I cleaned his tank 3 times: the first was a 100% water change since I needed to clean all the uneaten flakes hiding in the gravel. The other two were routine water changes.

My sister and I treated him the same as our own bettas, feeding him a pellet or two along with the flakes and treating him to bloodworms. The higher quality food and clean tank made him flourish!

When she came back and got him, she told me, “I feel like a bad fish owner! He’s never looked this good since we had him!” I told her to clean his tank every week and what we fed him while she was away.

Today she called me to ask about which water conditioner to buy, and told me about how she was picking up pellets and bloodworms for Blue. She was so proud of him for the giant bubble nest he has by his heater.

I’m so glad I was able to help show my aunt the rewards to proper fishkeeping, and now I know Blue will be well taken care of.

We’re Good

Request: You and Shawn are dating, but you don’t like Camila and you get jealous so you’re very lovey dovey whenever Camila is around––happy ending / “How long have you been standing there?”

a/n: thank you all for being so patient with these updates!! I’m really trying my best to crank them out and balance my school life + social life!! You all rock I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!

Your name: submit What is this?

Going to the studio and just sitting in on one of Shawn’s sessions was always one of your favorite things.  You didn’t want to have a career in the entertainment industry, but seeing the process of everything behind making an album captivated you since the first time you saw Shawn recording.

           You sat on the outside of the booth with a table full of snacks that Shawn requested.  Playing on your phone, or scrolling through social media, was what you did while you listened to him.  He was in the middle of recording some vocals for a piano ballad he wrote.  His voice was your favorite thing to listen to and it soothed every part of you.  You couldn’t hear the music he was singing along to, but from hearing the verse he was singing, you knew that this would be your favorite song off his next album.

Happy Birthday, Dad

Requested by @awkwardlove18

AN: I hope you enjoy this imagine and thank you for the request! Shoutout to April for this gif lol 

Also, based on the request there were some blanks I had to fill. Hopefully it’s fine and you still enjoy it!!

Shawn had known since an early stage in your relationship the strain shared between your father and yourself. It pained him to no end, seeing how tense it made you anytime he was brought up.

Shawn helped in every way possible, too. He cared so much, and often you wondered how you deserved such an amazing person to join you in a seemingly fucked up life.

Today, however, was your fathers birthday. Usually all you did was send him a text, or mail a card, hoping to avoid any, and all, face to face communication. The idea of even seeing him filled your mind with anxiety, but knowing Shawn would be there made it more manageable.

“We can leave whenever you want, ok? Don’t be afraid to tell me you’re uncomfortable. I won’t let him upset you.”

You nod, not being about to trust your voice in this moment, or your choice words, making Shawn’s feel small. You needed to stay strong and having a mental breakdown wouldn’t help anything.

You checked yourself out in the bathroom mirror, making sure each hair was in perfect place. Along with any wrinkles in your dress. That was always something your dad called you out on. Everything needed to be perfect, no excuses. A wrinkled dress meant a messy, careless person.

So I played the demo of UnderTale and it’s such a cute game :o 

I haven’t been in the best mood so I made this to remind all of you (and myself) that you are filled with determination

So it’s officially August and I’m starting a bullet journal! Though I’ll change to another notebook in September, I’ll probably still use this notebook for rough work or other messy things (as the paper quality isn’t the best).

I decided to start bullet journaling when I saw all those aesthetically pleasing bujos on YouTube and Instagram, and I added a little twist into my first bullet journal by adding a ‘fangirling’ page solely for marking down debuts, comeback dates and drama airing dates (I just found out that I forgot to mark down Winner’s comeback what am I doing), just to remind myself to check out the mvs and stuff.

My first weekly spread is awful ugh I needa improve my handwriting and as I’ve mentioned in my introduction post I am a total beginner at brush lettering ( and everything cursive) so pls bear with me ;) The dot grid thing at the bottom right corner is a sleep tracker cuz I always sleep very late and get up super late during the summer holiday, that thing is to motivate me to sleep more (yes, just sleep more, not get up earlier)

I also made a moon doodle which I copied straight from a book and tbh I feel pretty proud about it. Cuz I suck at doodling and even copying is tough work for me.

August’s theme is space cuz I LOVE blue and metallic colours and didn’t want to make sth about the sea (sea shells are hard to draw), so I basically only used less than 10 pens to create the whole spread : Blue Pentel fude touch brush pen for the word ‘August’, grey, pastel blue and silver Sarasa clip pens for the words and highlights, uni pin 0.2 fineliner for writing and shadows, and smoky blue and light grey mildliners for basically everything.

I’ll probably film a Plan with Me September very soon since I’ll go on a trip to Iceland in late August and will go straight to England after the trip to settle down and buy things for my dorm (I’ll be studying abroad soon), so I’ll film all my footage before departure and publish them when it’s the right moment to.

Thx for reading this long ass post and I hope you have a wonderful start to August! Love ya and byeee
