why are you on tumblr get back to work!

Ways to Have Fun in Fandom

1. Focus on creating your own content. Even if it doesn’t get a lot of traction right away, it will get seen by some people and they will enjoy it.

2. Compliment and support other artists if you like their stuff. Don’t be clingy or fantasize interacting with other popular content creators, just support them like you would an artist or a writer in real life.

3. Be generally polite to your online peers and be careful with being obsessive. Understand that everyone has personal boundaries and they all vary from user to user.

4. Spread your interests out to keep from getting creatively burnt out on something if you want to focus on it long term.

5. Write down all the ideas for content you’d like to create and pick the top three you you want to do most. You’re not going to have time or energy to make everything all at once, it’s ok if you miss other ideas.

6. Try to finish projects but don’t feel guilty about posting small sketches or writing in small chunks or works in progress.

7. Don’t feel bad about stopping production of content if you’re sick of it and want to move into anything else. Fandom usually isn’t something you do for profit, and in the grand scheme of things, notes and reblogs won’t count for much.

8. If something stops being fun, enjoy what you did and move on. It’ll still be there if you ever want to go back to it.

9. Try to stay casually in contact with people you’ve interacted with, explain why your leaving or taking a break from the fandom, and support their works if you’re still on good terms with them. Even if you do leave their fandom, it’ll show good sportsmanship.

10. Take breaks from tumblr and share work over multiple platforms. Twitter, instagram, and Facebook are all good ways to get tranction for your content, even if Tumblr is the go-to for fandom interactions.

youtube

Hi Tumblr. I don’t get to update a lot these days, and this is the reason why. The trailer for the movie that Kumail and I wrote together is finally out! 

Most of my time right now is spent on promotional stuff for the movie, writing ideas for other movies, and working on friends’ TV shows when I can, so I don’t have a lot of time to answer questions on Tumblr, but I wanted to show you all why I’ve been so absent. 

I will be back, but in the meantime you can watch our movie in NY/Chicago/LA on 6/23 and in theaters everywhere on 7/14! 

Mood Swing Apologies

Yo guys!
Been kind of out of this past week due to some personal stuff falling through and me still trying to get use to my new position at work. Sorry for being so rant-y and mood switch-y on twitter and tumblr. Just trying to better my emotions and my own well-being right now :) that’s also why videos have been stale. Working on getting the motivation back up and it’s on it’s way! Much happier today and i plan to stay that way.

Thank you everyone (friends and OGfam) for sticking with me during this rough period. I got all of the technical stuff handled (my computer) just need to situate myself. :)

Love,
Gerald

anonymous asked:

Wow wow wow. I followed you on twitter after seeing a bit of GT, then a few weeks later realized you are on tumblr. I've spent the last hour over-dosing on your feed, I don't think I've ever become teary-eyed just from looking at beautifully drawn characters before. You are truly lifegoals and have gotten me seriously working on my lineart again. I now understand why people use anon, I do not feel worthy to be looked at by you. <3

Oh gosh It brings me lots of joy knowing that you like my work and that it could get you back into working on your own stuff! That means a lot to me! No need to feel unworthy!! Ahh thank you!

Quick “update”: I am closing my asks until June 11th, too. I wanted to leave it open so you guys can contact me, but this morning I got so frustrated that I had to close them. 

Despite stating that I’m on hiatus in my description, making it my blog title, and making an entire post about it so nobody would miss it, some people still think it’s okay to send me requests (that I just don’t take, let alone now that I’m on hiatus) and try to tell me what to do with my stories.

I will write what I want to write when I want to write it because I’m a person and not a machine. I don’t understand why that is so hard to fathom for some people. If I’m on hiatus, it means that I’m taking a step back and staying away from Tumblr. Why do you think sending me requests that I don’t take will work when I can’t even get myself to reply to positive, supportive asks? 

Please, read the FAQ before sending me an ask.  I won’t be answering any of the questions that I’ve answered in my FAQ post when I come back from hiatus because I’m tired of getting the same requests over and over again when I don’t take them, and I’m tired of people asking for updates as if I can just sit down and write a 10k chapter every hour. If I could do that, I would. I would love nothing more than to be able to update and finish all these stories so everyone would be happy, but I can’t do that. I just can’t. I don’t have enough energy or time to finish a single chapter right now, let alone all of them.

For everyone else who has sent me an ask with a question or just a supportive message, thank you. I appreciate the time you took out of your day to think of me and send some positivity my way. I will get to answering all those asks when I have more time and when I feel better. Thank you for your support! I hope all of you are doing good! ♡

Seeing Their Ideal Type At A Concert

Requested by anonymous- Also, I’m sorry if it’s dumb and horrible and not what you were looking for. I’ve never done one of these before. I did some looking around and made this to the best of my abilities. I’m pretty sure I wrote these longer than most of the reactions I’ve seen, and less open ended and more story like, but that’s just how I roll. They kinda ended up almost more like mini drabbles lol. Scenarios? Whatever. Also, I felt incredibly cheesy writing these. So much cheese. 

HOSEOK

Your banner caught his eye first. A huge sign with his face saying “He’s our only hope!” (Kek) He walked over, prepared to give a bit of fan service, when he sees you. He thinks you are so pretty, and practically falls in love with your smile. He’s thrilled to see that you’re here for him when he notices your shirt with his face. He sends you finger hearts and his signature sun smile. He see’s that you and your friends are keeping up with even the more complicated dances, and notices by your movements that there is no way you are not a dancer. Suddenly this boy who was born extra, becomes extra X9000. Tongue is out, hips are thrusting, and he’s spending as much time on your side of the stage as possible. Unbeknownst to you, his whole performance has become about making you smile as much as possible. He catches the flower crown you throw onstage and wears it for the rest of the concert. As he leaves the stage at the end of the night, he makes a mental note to take a selca with the crown in the hopes that he’d see you comment. 

YOONGI

(I would like to take a quick moment to say I’ve felt the power of his smirk while looking into my eyes. It’s no joke when I say it’s a life changer)

Yoongi’s stage presence is well known for being powerful and charismatic. So it was no surprise to you that your eyes kept being drawn to him again and again. What did surprise you was the feeling that he was actually looking right back. Several times he come over and did his lines while looking right into your eyes, and holy shit, was that a smirk? You tried not to get excited, knowing full well it was most likely fan service. What you didn’t know, however, was that he was just LOVING how into the music you were. You even kept up with his rap lines. He could see by your blush that you knew the grin was for you, so he decided to have fun teasing you for the rest of the night. Just when he thought you couldn’t get more perfect, instead of turning into a sobbing fangirl from the attention, you started teasing him back. You fan yourself when he’s thrusting his hips at you, roll your eyes whenever he says something cheesy, and pretend to puke when he does aegyo. His gummy grin came out in full force when you threw him a devil horn headband, and you raised your eyebrows at him in challenge. He prances around in the headband and the crowd is loving it. Too soon, the night is over. Two weeks later, you find a new comment on one of your youtube covers… MYG comments: ”The music’s not bad devil girl.”

Namjoon

Originally posted by hoseokxx

Namjoon was greeting the crowd when he saw you, and stumbled over his words for a moment. You were stunning. If tumblr was a person, it would be you (I crack myself up). He spent most of the night hanging around your side of the stage, doing all kinds of silly things to make you smile, talking to the crowd as much as he could get away with. He knew he was supposed to be professional and pay attention to everyone, but he just couldn’t help himself. He was pleased when he saw you get excited and sing along with his parts, and thought it was cute when you tried to rap. At the end of the night, he made sure to lock eyes with you as he was saying goodbye to the crowd and gave you one of his famous dimpled winks. Fast forward a few months later, and the boys are looking over profiles for a model to be the love interest in their new music video. Namjoon’s shocked expression has everyone looking at the profile in his hand. “This one.” he growls. It’s you. 

Jimin

Originally posted by armyfanclub

He sees a huge poster of him in a puppy costume in the crowd. It makes him laugh so he looks down at the fans holding it and is shocked. You were perfect. Suddenly, he wants to do nothing but impress you. Goodbye puppy Jimin, hello Adonis. This boy is being completely disrespectful and there are way more body rolls, lip bites, and clothes being pulled off than there was supposed to be. He threw his shirt at you, and you caught it, shocked and blushing, while he grins. The night ends, and you leave a changed person, a Jimin stan for life. You are so worked up you film yourself dancing to Jimin’s solo Lie, and post it on youtube.  A few days later, it’s being retweeted by none other than BTS’s twitter. In your messages you find something from someone with a private profile. “Are you wearing my shirt right now? ;) (I’m sorry, he just seems like he would totally fuk boi text, ya know?)

Jungkook

Originally posted by jeonify

This boy would notice you right away and turn into a blushing mess. Until the music starts, that is. Suddenly he’s serenading you, and smirking, and just being charismatic AF. You were a little older than him and weren’t even a Jungkook stan, but you kept feeling yourself being pulled in his direction. He certainly moved his body in a way that suggested he knew what he was doing. Soon it was you that was a blushing mess and he loved it. You threw the plushie monkey on stage that you had actually meant for another member and he was quick to snatch it up and wrap it around his neck. He spent the rest of the night with it like that, and when the concert was over and they went to their rooms, he had it in bed with him. Some time passed, and you’re performing an acoustic cover of one of your favorite love songs at a cafe, like you do every Saturday. When the song is over, one of the waitresses brings over some tea and tells you it’s been paid for. You look around, and there in the dark corner of the cafe is a person in a black face mask. He pulls it down and winks at you before putting it back. Jungkook has found you. 

Taehyung

Originally posted by jimin-bts-trashs

(The gif kinda explains where I’m going with this one lol)

Ah, Tae. With this boy you never know what you’re going to get. He’s either the most adorable thing to ever exist, or so hot a single glance will melt you into a puddle. When he sees you in the crowd, sex god Taehyung is activated. He’s looking into your eyes while licking his lips. Thrusting his hips, and dancing so incredibly amazing. He’s been pulling his shirt up so much you begin to wonder why he even still has it on. Towards the end of the night, you throw up the two plushies you’d brought for him. He picks them up quickly, and kisses one before giving it back to you with a wink. You both sleep with them that night. The next day you are so inspired (infires!) that you spend all day drawing. You post what you consider your greatest work, Taehyung in all his seductive glory, on tumblr and it seems to be well received. You get a message a few days later. “Do you really think I look like that? WOW. I think you’re pretty too.”

Seokjin

Originally posted by bwiseoks

This man is a born show person. So as soon as he spots you, looking gorgeous and wearing his jersey numbers, he decides to put on the best show of his life. He’s talking to the crowd, dancing his little heart out and singing like an angel. You laughed at all his ridiculous jokes and cried when he did his solo. You were obviously filming and taking pictures, so he made sure to make as much contact with you as possible. At the end of the night, he looks straight into your camera and gives you his famous flying kiss. Several months later, Jin is taking an acting class, to prepare for a drama he was considering trying out for. The teacher reads off names and puts them into groups for a project. As he walks over to his assigned group, he’s stunned, because there you are.

Being a top student at university

Originally posted by iwishihadametalheart

This post is based on my (and my friends) experience (second year student; sophomore).

I haven’t double-checked it, so I suppose there would be some mistakes. I miss articles all the time, sorry.

1. First year is the most important

Show your professors your capabilities. Let professors get to know you, their opinion will be significant later. Slog your guts out, get the best marks, show them you really care and you are intrigued in what they say. Later on if the next year/term is tougher or you are be able to fully focus on your education, professors will look kindly on you, they won’t be so strict, so your marks won’t be much lower.

2. Luck

Believe me, we are not always fully prepared. Sometimes our knowledge is incomplete because we don’t had enough time to learn, the topic XYZ is so shitty that we simply don’t get part of it. It happens that we have to count on our luck. The final test is coming in a few hours and you still know nothing about ABC or XYZ. You don’t have enough time and you know you won’t get it in half of an hour. Fuck this, fuck that – you hope you will be able to answer a questions. You’ve got nothing to lose, joke that it would be nice, if you got a question about QWE. If the professor knows you, remembers you and is aware of your knowledge, there is a huge possibility you’ll get this question.

3. Talk to people before your final exams

It’s partly connected with “Luck”. Talk to people who already had their finals (not only to your peers but also to older students). It’s not about questions, because you won’t get the same ones, that’s for sure. It’s more about getting to know the professor’s way of thinking, asking questions, choosing topics. Ask people how much you need to write/say in order to get a good mark. Ask people what topics are professor’s favourite, what do you need to know, how to impress them. Mark down what questions did your friends/other students get – learn them if you know that this professor likes to ask the same thing, pay less attention if you know they like to change them. But never left them aside, you have to know at least part of the answer to be save.

PSA bc it's pissing me off rn

Hi this is a rant given to you by me while I’m sitting on the floor in my shower with my phone, in a life proof case, in my hands. I, because I’m tired from being out walking around in an unsuccessful hope of seeing fireworks, am just trying to chill while the water washes over me for a bit and enjoy some Bucky smut.

Now, here’s where I start to get annoyed. I search Bucky x reader smut and scroll through the tags. Not only do I find a shit ton of Seb Stan x Reader smut, I find fics that don’t contain any smut at all. So, I’ll scroll through the tags to see if Tumblr mobile is just fucking up. Nope. The authors tagged their Seb Stan angst as Bucky x reader smut.

Like, I get the point of why they do that bc it gets their work more views bc they’re tagging it with a popular tag. But c'mon man, when I’m scrolling through the search area looking for some Bucky smut I don’t wanna have to scroll past fics that don’t technically belong in that category.

Smh…okay…that is all. Just wanted to share my little annoyance with you guys. Back to sitting in the shower and then hating myself for wasting water. *grumble grumble grumble* I apologize for any typos or weird autocorrects.

Dogs of Future Past - Part 33

Sans gets back to Toriel’s place, where it seems like people are finally starting to believe him…although perhaps it’s too little, too late.

Yes, am going with a mid-week update! This is going to be the last written part. The rest is comic from here on out!

UNTITLED

I texted you today. Not because I missed you, but because I was used to running into your arms when I was scared. I was so used to having you with me when I needed help. When I needed you to comfort me with lies. I was used to seeing three small dots, and reading some sweet line you probably got from Drake.

I told myself “I’ve moved on,” and I believed it. I knew I did. But whenever I see you, whenever I see something that reminds me of you- of us-I melt down.

Until now I don’t what happened. Why did we let go? Did we know that nothing could bring back the feelings that ceased to exist? That talking wouldn’t mend the rapture we made in each other’s hearts?

I have many questions, but I can’t find answers. It’s like nothing could satisfy my thirst, my yearning for your love.

I texted you today, and you didn’t text back. Perhaps you never will.

So here's a list of fuugen fics you have to read

I’m not even going to try to embed the links cos I’m a lazy arse and I wanna get back to reading but I making this because I know I will be using this later myself so why not have it for everyone

FYI many of the authors are on tumblr if you go track the fuugen tag you’ll see them and I follow most of them but since I have like 22 tabs worth of fuugen fics open I’m not even going to bother linking them (they sometimes post their tumblrs in their bio or blurb so look)

Anyway, Imma shut up, so here (in no order whatsoever):

I’ll update if and when I find more good stuff UwU

EDIT April 22nd 2015: MORE FICS~

Semi hiatus

Um, my exams started yesterday (13/03) and we are also doing essays and some teachers are giving us some works so it’s getting hard to have time to be here and post things. That’s why I want to “"take a break”“, I won’t be online as much as before and I won’t be posting as much as before. My exams will be over next month (12/04) and then I’ll be back! I’ll have my queue on (24 posts per day, 1 post per hour). Having all those school things and tumblr to take care of was making me really stressed! So I hope you all can understand and won’t unfollow me T^T I’ll be online on the weekends and when I get time.

Thank you for reading ╰(´︶`)╯♡

This is the most awful suggestion I’ve ever heard. This is how you get people not to take LGBT folks seriously! You’re encouraging people to “try it” just for kicks! And “switching back?” How many LGBT people do you think have heard that shit before, like “Oh, it’s just a phase, you’ll grow out of it?” Why do you want to validate the people who say that shit?

Bonus points for somehow feeling that “becoming a threat” will 1) work and 2) earn you actual respect.

EXTRA bonus points for discussing the “cis” population like there aren’t cis lesbians/gays/bisexuals.

Hello TFSN members!

Good news! We have released the NEW AND IMPROVED MEMBER’S PAGE!

There is a new, updated member’s list with a more thorough key accompanying it, and we highly recommend you check it out. As a note, the stars work in a way that if you have several overlapping issues, you will still receive the highest amount of stars possible. (So, for example, if you are inactive and you haven’t submitted your information, you will still have 4 stars. So if you come back, but don’t submit info, you will be upgraded to two stars. That’s why it is recommended to get in touch with us to resolve any issues you may have!)

We highly recommend checking out the member’s page to make sure that all of your information is intact. A recent Tumblr update broke a LOT of old icon links, so even if you’ve submitted an icon in the past, it’s not guaranteed we have it. Also, some of you have more outdated member info, e.g. “waiting for Fitzsimmons to kiss,” so if you want to update that, please let us know! To make any changes to your icon/information, please SUBMIT it to us.
(Also, I pulled an all-nighter to finish it, so there might be mistakes - I am human! Please do check out your information.)

We hope this new streamlined page will work better for all of you. A lot of inactive blogs were removed, so this should be a better way to find the current Fitzsimmons blogs :)  Enjoy!

game0vere  asked:

Apologies in advance if this has been asked already, but one thing I'm a little paranoid about is someone attempting to steal (trace, repost, ripoff, etc.) my content, as such, I was wondering if there will be some system to combat this, or at the very least, will there be some archive for the creators to show they are indeed the creator of said content.

This hasn’t come up in awhile, so I’m very glad that you’re asking!

When you create an account on our site, you can link it to other accounts (like, for example, your Youtube or Tumblr). I’ll get back to why that’s important in a moment.

Say that you upload a drawing to WritScrib, and after a month someone messages you to say that they found your drawing reposted on WritScrib with tons of shares! You can then report that post for theft along with your source post. We will compare the timestamps, and if your post was first, any Chips the art thief made on your reposted work will be transferred to your account. If they have already sold the Chips back to the site, we will charge their account. If they have unlinked their payment options, we will attempt to issue a chargeback, and will IP ban that user. If we cannot reimburse you with the Chips, we will dip into an artists fund that the site will accumulate in order to reimburse you.

But what if you were migrating over to WritScrib and someone already reposted your work from another site?

That’s where account-linking comes in.

If you have your account linked, you will be able to prove that you were the original creator.

Additionally, the reposter’s post will have you changed to the source. That way, if anyone gives Chips to the repost, it will still go to you, and you will reap the benefits of any further circulation from the reposter.

instagram

People kept tagging stuff like “HOWW??” and “wtf why not me??” in my last post on Tumblr, and… it’s really just practice.

So, here’s some old subway/metro sketches.These are from a few years ago actually lol
Keep a pen and sketchbook on you at all times, no eraser or pencil, and you’ll get better at freehand sketches. Force yourself to do it. Mess up? Sketch right beside it and try again. I bought the cheapest pen and sketchbook that I could find (dollar store stuff).Also, I’m that creepy girl staring at you and drawing on the subway. Lol
On the other hand, I’m going back to work tomorrow for the first time in about half a year so I might not post as much…but I dont post that frequently here anyways so…XD;;

Made with Instagram

anonymous asked:

What do you think is the best way for indie developers to advertise their games?

Social media. 

Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram. Why? 

Free  ✓
Easy to share content  ✓
Easy to cross-post between them  ✓
Access to a ton of people  ✓
Use tags to show your content to people who enjoy similar content  ✓
Best way to track growth and interest in game  ✓
Quick and easy feedback  ✓
Get in contact with others doing similar work who you may join forces with  ✓

Other places like Reddit or forum boards works as well and might be better if you are looking for direct feed back (a game dev board or for me /r/pixelart). But yeah any indie dev team needs to be at least trying on social media. Don’t spend a dollar of advertising until you have a large following or the game is released and you use money you make to advertise it more. 

Let them talk all day about you. Accept the fact that people will always spread rumors, whatever you do. Whether you show them some love, affection and care they will always have something to say. Whether you change to something that they want you to be, they won’t be contented. They will still talk behind your back. Accept it.
Some will hate you and cause drama involving you. Some will drag you down and be a hindrance to your life. Some will give you pain and worrying throughout the day. But, neglect them. Learn to detach yourself from toxic people. Instead of fighting back, share them a smile. Let them wonder what you are up to. Show them that you are not getting affected thus, you’re using them as a motivation to be better. There’s always a reason why they are talking behind you, they are insecure. Let them waste valuable time talking about you, just continue living your life.
