OKAY so today was my midterm review, which is basically where i lay out all the stuff ive done so far and look over it w my professor and talk about it AND. AND! She said that all the stuff i had is good, which” ive never said about anyone’s work, i don’t think” (an exaggeration BUT STILL) and that she loves my line work. And she says im just. Good at drawing??? And she’s worries that im not gonna be challenged enough in the class at the level im at so she wants to get me experimenting with new materials and more stuff w figure-ground relationships I AM SO!!!!!
Figured I had enough semi-coherent MSA doodles to just dump them all here. Wish I had posted the comic with Galaham a bit earlier because at the time it was just him and Arthur with that hairstyle which remains one of the funniest things I’ve seen.
I pick up the skirt, I pick up the sparkling beads in black, this thing that moved once around flesh, and I call God a liar, I say anything that moved like that or knew my name could never die in the common verity of dying, and I pick up her lovely dress, all her loveliness gone, and I speak to all the gods, Jewish gods, Christ-gods, chips of blinking things, idols, pills, bread, fathoms, risks, knowledgeable surrender, rats in the gravy of two gone quite mad without a chance, hummingbird knowledge, hummingbird chance, I lean upon this, I lean on all of this and I know her dress upon my arm but they will not give her back to me.

I’ve figured I had stalled long enough in putting this out, so here it is! This is a graphic I was originally going to use for the RP I’m currently working on (which offers two different fc changes, hence the two different fc’s in the polaroid gifs), but I decided to scrap it and use something else. I made a few changes to it, and now it’s available for all you lovely people!
Alrighty, so I recently reached 500 followers which to me is huge and tbh I still can’t believe there are over 500 of you who like my blog enough to follow gosh I love you all so so much ♥♥♥ Here are some of the people who make my dash such a wonderful place and I only wish I could have fitted you all on here but you’re all so fab if I had then this would’ve been way too long a post. Anyway thanks so much you guys ilysm!
i love how the two clips released of liz on the jimmy kimmel show have absolutely nothing at all about agents of shield
like yeah i’ve heard enough about this show now tell me more about how you used to scare people into testing people for chlamydia by telling them they could go blind, tell me more about getting drunk in hollywood and then realizing you had to be a princess at a children’s party the next morning
It’s Valentine’s Day on Saturday, which means absolutely
nothing aside from the fact that a lot of chocolate is going to be on sale on
the 15th, and a lot of women are going to be sorely disappointed
that their boyfriends still haven’t proposed. Around this time of year I hear a lot of talk from people about
all the unrealistic expectations we were fed as kids. “IF ONLY movies had showed us the REAL way love works!” Aw, boohoo. You’re either watching the wrong movies, or you’re not
paying close enough attention. But don’t worry, I’m here to help you out.
When I hear things like this, I like to throw it back and discuss
our first doses of romance: The
I can’t tell you how many times I hear someone say that
Disney gave them unrealistic expectations of love. Really? You
know what that is?
They gave us perfectly realistic expectations. Disney movies are essentially a “how to”
guide on spotting Red Flags and avoiding shitty relationships. Allow me to prove my point.
Let’s meet some of our Princes.
Prince Beast - Oh, I’m sorry, did I say “Beast?” I meant “Prince Adam.”
So let’s take a brief look at Adam. Firstly, he’s a rich shallow shithead who was so repulsed by
an old woman that he wouldn’t let her stay the night in his castle so she
didn’t freeze her wrinkly old head off.
Then, she transforms into this crazy beautiful enchantress and he’s like
“oh fuck, just kidding, you can come in, nice tits.” She’s like, “Nah.
You’re gonna be ugly now.” Then
he locks Belle up in a cage (so that her dad can go free, because previously Adam
just decided to casually lock up an old man who was lost in the woods) and
keeps her prisoner. Thirdly, he
spends a good amount of the movie throwing shit across the room and screaming
at the top of his lungs at his servants. But
he’s damaged so we love him. Realistically,
Belle falls in love with a shallow egotistical criminal with rage issues. And she thinks she can change him. Best of luck. Your poor provincial town doesn’t look so bad anymore, does
Does everyone remember how Aladdin spent the first ten minutes of the
movie running around stealing shit and singing about it? I remember that. I also remember how he was being
“granted wishes” by a magical blue floating “genie” and frolicked around barefoot
with a monkey. Dude was high as
Jasmine essentially ends up
with a compulsive liar who is not only a thief, but probably drops a little too
much acid in his free time for his own good. Get Rajah and get the fuck out of Agrabah.
Prince Florian – Little did you know that this is the name of Snow White’s
Prince. Yeah, that’s right. We’re gonna start this off with a dude
named FLORIAN. As if that wasn’t
bad enough, this dude stumbles across what could easily be a dead body in a
forest and the first thing he does is kiss it. I’m sorry, what?
Are you fucking mental or a date rapist? How are you going to tell me that’s true love’s kiss? If I stumble across a body in the woods
the first thing I’m doing is running the fuck as far away as I possibly
can. Then I’m going to call
the cops. Then I’m going to get
good and drunk and try to forget that it ever happened. This motherfucker threw up a bold
red flag called necrophilia and Snow White woke up and told all the birds in the forest she was in
love. Girl. Come on.
Prince Eric – Ah, the classic tale about a dude
who falls in love with a girl that can’t talk. OH WAIT, THAT’S NOT A CLASSIC TALE. Ariel get your shit together. He found you stranded on a beach, you
hadn’t fully learned how to walk, and he wasn’t really worried about the fact
that you literally could not speak.
You’re a helpless doe-eyed woman who can’t complain about him not taking
out the trash and he thinks it’s endearing when you brush your hair with a
fork. Yeah, I’d say this
relationship is going to work out for the best. He seems like a keeper.
Prince Charming – EUGHG. That’s this dude’s NAME. That’s basically
like meeting a dude and him being like “Hi my name is DOUCHE.” Just go by John, or Brandon or
something. I don’t know, make it
up but for fuck’s sake do not go by your last name if it’s CHARMING. You’re clearly insecure and compensating and it’s embarrassing
everyone. Cinderella goes to the
ball. And this dude has an amazing
time with her and is head over heels and then she runs off and loses a shoe and
what does this fucker do? He tries
to find the foot that fits the shoe.
HOLD UP. You’re telling me
you’re in love with this girl and you can’t find her just purely based on the
memory of what she looks like?
You’re just going to assume that if she’s a size six and a half it’s the
girl you danced with the entire night and leave it at that? WHAT?
Li Shang – Real quick, is no one the least bit
suspicious about the fact that Li Shang basically kind of wanted Mulan when she
was supposedly a he? It’s totally
fine if you’re gay but I mean, come on, let’s at least be honest. ”Make a Man Out of You” was the closest thing to a gay cabaret piece I have ever seen in a Disney movie.
As a single woman on Valentine’s Day it’s easy to find
yourself saddened by your loneliness, stunted with the raw truth that one by
one, your eggs are dying and maybe that Pinterest wedding board you made is
better off as a “Things that I can eat that will fill the hole in my heart”
But to this I say a firm no.
Learn from the Princesses. Rejoice that you are not them.
You know what being single means? It means you dodged a fuckton of bullets and you’re not
settling and dating some idiot who isn’t deserving of your time and
energy. Remember all the men that
it didn’t work out with? That was
for a reason. Believe me. Love shouldn’t be so fucking hard.
Laugh with your friends. Take every day and
celebrate the people you know can depend on and love yourself enough to know your worth.
And if you sense that you’re a shallow dude with rage issues
and a damaged heart who has an enchanted castle you should probably look into some
Hahaha I came home and said hi to my cat and he meowed back. I turned to my stepdad and went “see? He replies to me!” My brother was like “Hello Marco! Hello Marky! Hello baby! Hey, hi!” But he was 100% BLANKED and he was right in his face and all. I turned back to him and went “Heya Marks.” In the most casual way I could and I still got a “mrrow!” back. I half-jokingly said “Haha! He only replies to me!”
Since Marco kinda likes my step dad too (but not as much as me) he gave me this look as if he was going to prove me wrong. Soon enough “Hello Marco! Hey, Marco? Hi! Hello Marco!” Etc etc ensued. No answer from the purring cat at my feet. All it took from me was a little
“Hello Marky-moo.” AND HE REPLIED. AGAIN. TO ME. NOT ANYONE ELSE.
They were calling him for ages, but I was the only one worthy of a meow. This cat has truly chosen me.
Commission time! I recently got sick and had to pay doctor visits plus medicine without insurance which ended up clearing my bank account. My part-time job, while very grateful for it, isn’t enough to cover all my bills and my brand spanking new insurance plan. Also, my grandma has been having a rough time lately and I would really like to help out my loved ones a little more. EDIT:All images are high resolution digital files. If you would like it sent “snail mail”, note me so we can figure out S&H. I’m opening up 4 slots for the time being.
Did you miss me? I SURE MISSED YOU ALL! Bless you and all your lovely messages and comments on my posts! Wifi was hard to come by whilst travelling, so, forgive me for being unable to reply to all but please know that it brightened my day so much more, reading them whenever I could!
I had the most amazing time in Italy!! Although right now, I’m so knackered and dead. Barely slept and mum is on leave (which means I’ll be quite busy the entire weekend through). So, unfortunately, I won’t be able to get to writing till Monday at least (hopefully I’ll have had enough rest then) but I’ll be replying all messages from before my trip to during!
I hope everyone is doing gloriously well and that you all had an amazing week! Missed you loads and it’s great to be back! Home and on tumblr! ❤️ queued up some delicious Tom and Lee!
Today, I logged on and found that I had reached 400 followers, which is the best Valentine’s Day gift I could have asked for!! In honor of today’s holiday, I’ve decided to make each and every one of you my Valentines! My gifts to you are these: this crappy graphic, and my my sincere and humbled gratitude that this many of you liked this blog and my writing enough to stick around.
Here’s some more sappy gushing, then we’ll get to the good part. I’ve had a few blogs on Tumblr over the years, all in different fandoms. Never before have I enjoyed and felt so incredibly welcome in a fandom before DARP. I made this blog on a whim as a distraction during a hectic finals week, and thanks to the amazing people I have met here I have never once regretted that decision. I’ve had some periods of inactivity, including right now what with school and real life stress, but thanks to the amazing people on my dash this blog has always been a bright spot and a place for me to come and escape real-world responsibilities and enjoy myself. I love Isabela so incredibly much — she’s a complicated woman who tries desperately to convince everyone that she’s not, and getting to write as her has been so much fun. But it wouldn’t have been half as good without the amazing people on my dash giving me the chance to throw her into the world of DARP. This fandom is kind, funny, talented, and so incredibly supportive. I love you all dearly and I would kiss you all on your perfect faces if you were into that.
Now! Here are the people who make this madness possible by being amazing people and amazing writers (and if I forgot anyone I’m really sorry but I’m very emotional rn I swear I love you all).
FIRST MATES — a list of people with whom I’ve either written with or interacted with OOC who are fantastic people who I love
When in the chronicle of wasted time
I see descriptions of the fairest wights,
And beauty making beautiful old rime,
In praise of ladies dead and lovely knights,
Then, in the blazon of sweet beauty’s best,
Of hand, of foot, of lip, of eye, of brow,
I see their antique pen would have express’d
Even such a beauty as you master now.
So all their praises are but prophecies
Of this our time, all you prefiguring;
And, for they look’d but with divining eyes,
They had not skill enough your worth to sing:
For we, which now behold these present days,
Have eyes to wonder, but lack tongues to
Request: A girl in the glade who’s not shy or anything and she’s witty,strong,clever etc.But when she’s alone she gets kinda sad about the situation they’re all in and Newt finds out and just comforts her,admits his love and they just sit there hugging?(Thnx)
Note: Here you go! I hope you like it (:
Newt x reader Words: 1157 Warnings: None
‘’Can’t we just
climb it?’’ You wondered, staring at the enormous gray walls in front of you.
The walls were covered in ivy, which made you feel like you were looking at a jungle.
The ivy looked strong and you had tried it a few times, it was strong enough to
hold you. You took it in your hands, pulling to check it, you couldn’t be too
sure. Then you started climbing. ‘’There has to be a way.’’ You murmured. You
climbed easily and you were ready to climb as high as you could. Then you felt
two warm hands on your waist, holding you, slowly pulling you down again. ‘’The
ivy doesn’t go all the way to the top.’’ You let the ivy go and Newt put you
back on the ground. ‘’Behind the ivy?’’ You asked, looking to the opening in
the walls. ‘’We’ve tried it. Everything you’re thinking of, we’ve already
tried.’’ You met his eyes and then walked to the opening in the walls, where
the doors were. You looked at it. The gray stone didn’t really scare you. You
stared at the walls, trying to find something odd, something that could help
you get out. ‘’You’re not going in there.’’ Newt said, he was standing next to
you now, watching you carefully. ‘’I’m not. I’m just trying to figure things
out.’’ You sighed, you wanted to find something. You wanted to be a Runner so
you could explore more. Explore the Maze. Discover. Find a way out. ‘’You’re
clever, but you have to let the Runners do their job.’’ Newt spoke, his voice
was calm and you turned around to look at him. A smug look appeared on your
‘’But I’m going to be a Runner someday.’’ Newt chuckled. ‘’Today is not that
‘’Yeah yeah, I know. But I bet I’m strong enough.’’ You raised your arm to look
at your muscles. They weren’t that big and you were just joking. Newt laughed. ‘’Admire
your muscles later, time for lunch.’’ You could hear the smile in his voice and
walked with him toward the Homestead.
You sat at a table with Newt and Gally. Alby was somewhere else and Thomas and
Minho were in the Maze. You ate your food in silence and then all went back to
work. The thing was, that you had nothing to do today. That was why you were
climbing the ivy earlier. You had nothing to do and then you started thinking.
Normally you came up with plans to escape the Maze and you proudly presented
them to Newt. He admired your enthusiasm, but it made him sad to hear the
plans. The plans would never work, you
just made them to pass time.
You walked to the Deadheads to take some rest. You sat down on the soft grass,
leaning against a tree. You were in the shadow and the coldness felt like
heaven after being in the sun all day. You moved your hand through the grass,
letting it slip between your fingers. You looked around the Glade. If you didn’t
know better, you would think it was a happy place. A place where everyone did
their job and had food and was happy. But you did know better. You were trapped
in a giant Maze filled with hideous creatures. You called them Grievers. The
boys who looked happy working, were probably crying late at night, because they
didn’t want to be here. There was food, luckily, the Creators sent them every
week. You knew there was a way in, through the Box, but that wasn’t a way out.
You had tried it a few times. You put someone in the Box, but then the Box
wouldn’t go down again. Someone once went down with a rope and was cut in half.
The thought made you shiver. You were glad that had happened before your
You just wanted to get out so badly. You couldn’t stand the thought of doing
nothing. You wanted to do something, anything, to find a way out. But you
couldn’t. That was why you felt hopeless, at moments like this, when you were
just thinking. You felt like you had to come up with solutions. Every spare moment
had to be useful, you had to think about the Maze. You couldn’t just relax and
sit back, no. There was no time for that. You needed to get out as soon as
When you looked around the Glade for the second time, it hit you. It felt like
your feelings came crashing down all at once. You were trapped, surrounded by
big walls. There was no way out. The walls didn’t scare you, but now it felt
like they were closing in on you. You had trouble breathing, it became harder.
Everything became harder. A panicking feeling started spreading through your
body. You had to relax, otherwise this wouldn’t end well. You dug your nails
into the palm of your hand. If you focussed on the pain, you would calm down
‘’Are you okay?’’ You saw Newt standing there, a few feet away, looking at you
with a worried look on his face. You nodded and then looked at your hand. A small
drop of blood was on your fingers. You had pressed too hard. ‘’You’re bloody
not.’’ Newt said when he saw your hand. He walked over to you and sat down. The
panicking feeling washed away and now it felt like you were overwhelmed by
sadness. The only thing left to feel was sadness. Tears started to form in your
eyes but you blinked a few times and ignored it. ‘’It’s okay.’’ Newt knew what
was going on. He wrapped his arms around you, pressing you closer to him. You
leaned into him, glad with the comfort he gave you. ‘’Do you think love is
possible in this place?’’ You said. Thinking about Newt made you wonder about
love. ‘’You wanna try?’’ He said, a smile on his face. You laughed. ‘’No I’m
sorry, but I wouldn’t mind, ya know..’’ He was struggling to find the right words.
‘’What Newt?’’ You asked. ‘’I wouldn’t mind to be in love with you. No wait,
that’s not it. I’m already in love with you.’’ He looked at you, an insecure
look was on his face. You smiled, feeling a warmth spreading through your body and
a tickling feeling inside your stomach. ‘’I’d love to try.’’ You whispered and
a blush came to your face. Newt leaned into you, pressing a kiss on your nose. ‘’Best
bloody thing I’ve heard today.’’ He chuckled and you lay your head on his shoulder.
It felt like a weight fell of your shoulders. The sadness was still there but
made room for something else. You could feel a spark of it, the familiar
feeling that made you want to smile all the time. Yes, it was there. Happiness.
Alright! This is Mod Monodore here… and it’s now the moment you’ve all been waiting for! So, we had a really hard time choosing who to get in, and you all had such wonderful applications, to the point we actually decided to extend the roster by 4!!! And even though we did that for more flexibility on our part, we also did it because wow, we loved some of your applications! But enough, enough, I give you the students who will be going on their way to test the Harry Potter beta (which goes horribly wrong, whoops)!

And on that note, I will be sending out Skype requests to all the applicants to add you all to a group chat for the group! Thank you for all applying and I hope we have a nice run! The sprites for the Hogwarts uniforms are unfortunately not complete yet, but we have still decided to release the roster nonetheless! The sprites will hopefully be complete by the end of the prologue week tho, and they’ll be on the roster page for you all to see! Also be aware, we will be posting the prologue stuff tonight, so be prepared! Prologue lasts a week!!!
For those of you who didn’t get in (or if you got in too), please feel free to ask for a review? It might be Mod Monosnore who does them or it might be me. We do apologize, and I assure you everyone had good applications and it was hard to narrow them down. I cannot say the review will come quickly, but we will attempt to do them as soon as possible.
