“She’s moping again.” Steve sighed, nudging Bucky in the ribs when they saw you.

Bucky nodded, eyeing you from across the room. You were sitting still as Dr. Cho attached a few more wires to your head and chest, watching the snow fall over the city. “It’s almost Christmas and all she wants is to see her old home.”

“Alright, one more time, okay? Tell me when you feel pain.” Dr. Cho told you quietly and you nodded, eyes flickering over to where Bucky and Steve stood watching.

A couple of fun costume things that I learned (or relearned? it has been a long time) whilst checking things for the Fashion of Nemesis post, but couldn’t find space for:

  • Iain McCiag’s original intention was that Maul wore feathers on his head, attached to a wire. The act of wrapping the feathered wire around his head was to be a meditative act of self-flagellation, each feather having to hit exactly the right point or he would have to start over. The design, when passed on to the creatures department, was interpreted as horns, and that’s how we ended up with the spiky zabrak we all know and, uh, know today. 
  • Maul’s markings were created in a frustrated accident of spilled ink, and were developed and finalised through experimental rorsharch-like ink blottings.

Iain McCaig, The Art of Star Wars The Phantom Menace

This sketch also demonstrates the original ‘muscle suit’ costume before it was decided to more directly mirror the Jedi costumes, and design something more sympathetic to movement and combat.

  • Maul’s one piece of bling, an earring in his left ear, was never a part of his character design. It was Ray Park’s own, and he was wearing the earring when he sat down in the make-up chair. Hours later, when he stepped in front of the camera, it was still there and wasn’t noticed until it had been shot on and established. The earring stayed for the remainder of the shoot, and Maul has stuck with this one concession to fashion all the way through the Clone Wars to rebels. Despite its constant presence over 20 years, it has never been given an explanation or backstory. Maul just really likes it, ok.

  • Okay im sorry but im gonna do this as bullet point thingy
  • Bc this is what inspires me rn
  • I just feel like it flows better this way
  • And this request has been sitting here forever
  • I mean it’s the first in our inbox
  • And it was there when Mariah and I joined
  • And the inbox had already like 60 asks
  • Okay sorry no more rambling
  • Onto this request
  • So like I’m assuming this isn’t an AU and Seungcheol got injured on a stage or something
  • Like, remember the MAMA stage when he tripped on Vernon’s head?
  • Yeah something like that
  • Like he fell off stage bc he tripped on a misplaced wire and hit his head pretty hard
  • So he’s injured and he has to stay in the hospital for a while to get regular check-ups and stuff
  • And you work in the hospital as a nurse
  • Like you work the evening/night shift okay
  • And this guy comes in, with a concussion and he’s kind of out of it
  • And there are so many people with him
  • You’re like “y’all need to get out of here”
  • Way too crowded okay you guys are all leaving even though you’re cute (esp you, wow you a cutie hum)
  • So the first time you walk into Seungcheol’s room he’s alone or like only with one of their managers
  • I don’t remember their names I’m sorry and im too lazy to look it up
  • So you come in and the doctor is there and Seungcheol is kind of out of it
  • Like he’s got a pretty serious concussion
  • So while the doctor talks to their manager about his condition and kinda explains what’s going on
  • You install all this stuff and check Cheol’s vitals like his blood pressure and maybe you fix his pillows or smth
  • Idk okay
  • But he’s clearly fazed and he looks at you and he’s like
  • “… Hi. I’m Seungcheol.”
  • And so you just kindly smile and tell him your name
  • And he tells you you’re pretty while you’re reaching over and getting closer to him to adjust his pillows and make sure he’ll be comfy for the night
  • And suddenly his cardiac monitor starts to go faster
  • And at first he doesn’t realize what’s happening so he’s just like what?
  • So you don’t say anything but you blush bc you’re pretty sure you know what’s happening
  • Your eyes meet and you suddenly jump back and look at other stuff
  • When you glance at him, Seungcheol is looking down, blushing
  • His heartbeat is slowly going back to normal
  • You don’t say a word and when you’re finished, you bolt out of the room
  • once you’re out of the room you’re like omg what
  • did you make this happen?
  • did you make this cute boy’s heart go faster like that?
  • but that doesn’t make any sense bc why would an idol (yeah he’s an idol what you’re taking care of an idol) find you attractive like that?
  • and so you just shake it off (shake it off sorry i just got this image of the hillywood show) and forget about it for the night and go home
  • you come back the day after
  • Since he’s got quite a serious concussion and possibly some injury in his back, seungcheol has to stay in for a few days
  • you’re on duty for pretty much everyday of his stay (bc that’s how nurses roll y’all they never actually stop working)
  • and you happen to have to take care of him bc he’s on your floor
  • and every time you come in and you bring him meds or check his vitals, his cardiac monitor goes faster
  • at first cheol turned red and was a bit embarrassed about it
  • but by the fifth time he just doesn’t say anything and looks at you with a little smirk
  • especially since you’re so flustered every  time
  • you thought it might be something wrong with the machines, since you do have the bad tendency to forget your phone in your pocket after your break oops
  • and so once you made sure to leave your phone and anything that wasn’t organic in your locker before going in his room
  • but as soon as you enter and walk up to his bed, the steady heartbeat starts going faster
  • it’s not beating as erratically as it was the first time, but it’s noticeably faster
  • at this point, you’re so embarrassed and confused that you don’t even look at him bc you know you’ll turn beet red
  • so you hand him his meds and get out of the room as fast as you can
  • but you still catch seungcheol’s eyes and he’s smirking at you
  • and you really love hate it
  • it’s making you all flustered and confused and how dare this boy with a concussion and a possibly damaged spine sorry coups try to be charming
  • also how does he manage to be charming in a hospital gown?
  • that is very rude
  • anyways, moving on
  • one time you were getting out of the room and one of your colleague saw your red face and was like what’s up omg
  • and it just so happens that they’re a close friend so you tell them about what’s been happening
  • and they just laugh at you
  • literally they start laughing and they don’t stop and tears are pearling in their eyes and you’re standing in the corridor, scowling down at your so called friend
  • “it’s not funny, stop laughing, you dick
  • “that is the most amazing thing i’ve ever heard omg”
  • “istg imma kick you if you don’t stop”
  • anyways you’re still not convinced this thing is about you, specifically
  • so you manage to convince your colleague/friend to go in instead of you once
  • so they go and when they come back they’re like
  • “well that was disappointing”
  • “???”
  • turns out he didn’t even flinch
  • he even asked about you
  • and your friend can’t help but be a bit offended bc excuse they’re hot too
  • but that’s another story
  • so what you thought would be a good idea turns out to be a horrible idea bc now you’re sure you’re the one causing his heartbeat to go faster
  • so you’re red to the ears even before going in his room the next time you have to go check on him
  • “okay y/n calm the fuck down this is your job you are a nurse you can do this”
  • you walk in and seungcheol is sitting on the edge of his bed and you’re like
  • “what the hell do you think you’re doing mister?!???!!?”
  • your embarrassment is forgotten in half a second
  • and he says his legs are heavy and he wants to go for a walk
  • and you’re like “noooooo sir that is not an option you are injured and your back won’t get better if you walk around like a fool now go back in bed”
  • and seungcheol pouts at you
  • like
  • he literally pouts and gives you his best doe eyes rip you
  • “please?”
  • and you’re shook
  • what the actual fuck
  • that boy has no right of using aegyo to get what he wants from you
  • you almost give in bc you’re so taken aback but you a strong person and you stand your ground
  • you walk towards him and you grab him gently by the shoulders and push him back into the mattress
  • as soon as you touch him and get closer to make him lie down, the cardiac monitor starts speeding up behind you
  • but this time you’re like hell no boy you are staying down and you are calming yourself
  • i may be embarrassed but im also a nurse and rn you need to lie down
  • so you put him back into bed and even fluff his pillows
  • all while scolding him bc smh this boy why would he want to take a walk when he has a back injury
  • when you’re done, seungcheol smiles at you and wow
  • has he ever smiled at you like that
  • like his teeth are showing and his eyes are crinkling 9:15 amirite
  • suddenly he seems younger and a lot more handsome and it’s like he’s glowing
  • you’re so surprised but you smile in return
  • and you just share this moment and take the time to appreciate it
  • you stand up straight and smile fondly
  • “alright, don’t ever do this again unless you’ve been told you could walk around”
  • “sure thing, y/n”
  • and he winks at you playfully and you walk out feeling giddy and giggly and ooh god what is happening to you
  • are you getting the feelings? for onE OF YOUR PATIENTS?
  • well you aren’t a doctor i guess it’s not illegal but STILL
  • you’re like ??!!?!?!?!!!
  • and you met him like 4 days ago what is this
  • but now you catch yourself smiling when you think about him and even laughing when you think about the cardiac monitor incidents
  • and so you come in the next evening and you grab a dinner tray and go into seungcheol’s room
  • but he’s not there
  • instead, there’s an elderly man sitting up in the bed, his hand neatly folded in his lap
  • he’s looking outside the window
  • at first you’re disappointed bc you’ve become used to your visits to seungcheol
  • his smile always made you warm and he somehow made you feel beautiful
  • nonetheless, you smile and approach the man 
  • you’re still a nurse, dammit
  • “good evening, i’m here with your dinner”
  • the man looks at you and hesitates
  • “are you y/n?”
  • “um.. yes… yes, i am.”
  • you’re a bit surprised - why would this man know who you are?
  • he reaches over to the cardiac monitor and snatches a folded paper from it
  • as you put his dinner down, he hands it to you
  • “your name was written on it. i guess the person before me left it for you”
  • you thank the man and take the piece of paper from his hands
  • you wait until you’re out of the room before unfolding and reading it
  • the handwriting is a bit messy, but you recognize an effort into making it readable
  • there’s a little heart on the top and below is written
  • “you make my heart race. -s”
  • a phone number follows

anonymous asked:

Can we please talk about Maya's face right after Riley follows Lucas after he nods at her to follow, especially when lucas did the exact same move in maya's fantasy with him when he's telling her to go with him into the purple cat club? Because I'm emotional

Yes! Caught the face, but not the nod parallel. That’s actually VERY interesting, when you think about it. 

In terms of Maya’s face, I do think that’s basically just about Riley leaving and the emotional weight of that, but the nod is an interesting subtle potential callback to Ski Lodge, which does make you wonder if it there was maybe a little more to it.

Lucas does the head nod to Maya in Maya’s fantasy when they go into the purple cat club aka Topanga’s, where the countdown begins and the bomb goes off because lucaya can’t cut the red wire.. Lucas does the head not to Riley in real life when they leave Topagana’s to say goodbye.

Interesting, indeed.

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red:
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound:
I grant I never saw a goddess go,
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare.


Nokki the tundra cat mixed media sculpture OOAK art doll

Avaliable on ETSY: https://www.etsy.com/ru/listing/472986585/nokki-the-tundra-cat-mixed-media?ref=shop_home_active_1

Nokki is a young representative of a rare species of cats that inhabit the far tundra wasteland. She is not a cub, but not an adult yet. As soon as they get older, they lose their stripes on coat.
I was inspired by different animals, but most of all by cats.
Made of super sculpey, faux fur, wire armature. Althoug her head is casted in resin it’s absolutely one of a kind work and it wont be reproduced.

have I ever mentioned how the (understandable, often necessary) dialogue about how abused people often honestly love their abusers and do as much cognitive gymnastics as possible to not see themselves as having been treated poorly -

- gets a LOT of wires crossed in my head with ableist shit about the necessity of Empathy and Love and Having Good Emotions -

(especially the more a given post or article’s language universalises the former, heeyyyyyy)

- to the point of my intuition basically parsing it as “you are not a good enough abused and also probably just a sociopathic jackass if you weren’t Appropriately Sympathetic and Attached, and Subsequently Devastated To Have Your Love Challenged”

uh because that’s a thing.

Some more Aquarium Au, a little quick sketch of Koi Stan and Ford.

This is a point after Ford learns that Stanley’s eye sight is terrible, Ford figures he’d try to help Stan with his eye sight. After a trip to the top of the fish tank, Ford offers Stanley to look through his glasses to see how close or far off they’re vision is. Luckily for Ford Stanley has the same bad eye sight as Ford does and he makes him a pair of classes of his own, trying to use the type of thickened glass with wire wrapped around the lens for the frames, with some thin foam glued over the wire with a water proof adhesive (That way Stanley can wear them comfortably without the wires cutting his head, face and ears). They’re of course not perfect, they are good enough for Stan to see. Whom by the way is so shocked to See Ford so clearly, along with the rest of his surroundings with having to be pressed up close to it.
