work with what you've been given

Maybe, if I'm lucky, I will end up at Laika some day too! Laika has always been a favorite of mine, and certainly a place in which I can envision myself. But if not, who knows. But I will certainly end up somewhere. And you've kinda given me the balls to keep trying so I can see where that somewhere is. (3/3)

YES! You have enormous balls and don’t forget it! Never let anybody’s rejection of you make you stop doing what you love, that’s way too much power to give them. If anything, use that rejection as fuel to make great work and prove them wrong! That’s how I’ve always seen it, I’m very motivated by others not thinking I can do something, as strange as that may sound. Just focus intensely on your craft and everything else will fall into place. The only approval that matters is your own. Best of luck!

You are just a hateful bitch. There is really nothing more to you. Women like you were given as examples as to why women generally shouldn't have rights. Stupid, pigheaded, gossipy, nasty, lazy, brainless, foul, squawking chickens running around spewing their self hatred as if they have no head whatsoever. You've been abused, clearly, should I say you deserved that? You're nothing but a female chauvinistic pig. Oink fucking oink.

Uhh, you know what? I don’t even need to manslate this one. He’s already done the work of explaining his special brand of caustic misogyny.

Not sure if you've been asked this or not but what would you do if roosterteeth offered you a job writing for RWBY? They seem to be familiar with your work and know about your tumblr. Just curious Ps love your stuff

Wow! What a scenario. I’ve honestly never given it serious thought.

Well first I would laugh myself sick and also probably drink a lot and maybe cry from confusion and horrorhappiness

Then I would ask if I could stay in San Antonio and keep my other writing jobs or if I had to go to Austin and pledge my soul to RT


then I’d be an annoying little shit and probably try to change everything and I would make Yang as gay as possible and t r y to make Jaune less fucking annoying (though at this point that might be impossible, even for me).

Cinder would also actually do something earnestly and disquietingly evil instead of vaguely hinting at evil plans.

No new characters, we introduce SSSN and that is IT. NO NEW CHARACTERS. We focus on the ones we HAVE. 

And tighten up that fucking plot, jesus christ, two seasons in and we’re meandering everywhere.

I think your analysis of Sherlock is so interesting, I was confused and disappointed about Mary's death and confused as to why it said 'miss me?' on her recorded message. I was confused as to how anything could have related, to what Moriarty had/has supposedly left behind. Like why would the cd have 'miss me' on it, as a strange joke from Mary? My point being, you've changed my perspective of the show and I'm looking forward to the next episode, I'm glad I found this blog :)

Thank you so much, that is very nice of you to say! Her disc reading “miss me” is not the first connection to Moriarty Mary’s been given. She was supposedly working for Mycroft in TAB but lead the boys to Moriarty in disguise. Her sinister head tilt in HLV directly correlates to him. Her saying “Is he dreaming” as Moriarty says “You’re dreaming” in TAB. Her devil horns in TSOT and Watson saying “What the devil!” twice upon seeing her in TAB correlates to the Devil symbolism usually reserved for Moriarty. I honestly don’t know why so many people willingly over look these things. She has been coded as evil for a long time now. I was softening to her at the end of TST until I heard the “Go to hell, Sherlock” and realized she’s more than likely a mirror for The Bride, using her suicide as an opportune moment to make her death count. But the bride was also Moriarty, and he wants to burn the heart out of Sherlock, so the mirrors keep going. People give her a pass because they refuse to question or acknowledge her motivations and actions, assuming everything she does is for love even though she has never once said the word “love”. I hope she’s not dead, comes back and wreaks absolute terror on these two because she’s a great actress and I love a good psychopath.

Even if there's the "real" ep, it doesn't erase the trauma of today. The hurt. Pain. Anger. Betrayal some of us experienced. Ugh. I'm hurting and I'm still crying. This show made me believe in love. Friendship. Redemption. And this... is bullshit. Anyways, I just wanted to say that you've been an amazing person in this fandom and you are one of my conductors of light. thanks so much for everything. for all the effort and work and love you've given us <3

Agreed, Lovely. It’s 2017, there’s no reason for this kind of television. 

I will always love Sherlock for what it has done for me on a personal level, and for the friends I’ve made. 

Thank you so much for your kind words :)

It hadnt occurred to me until I saw your best of tumblr post, but it's been nearly one year since I found your blog! Your amazing, expressive art drew me to your blog, and I can't go a day without checking your blog at least once. TPOH is one of the best comics I've ever seen, your characters are amazing, and I am astounded by the amount of emotion you are able to pour into your work. I can't wait to see what you do next year, so good luck, and thank you so, so much for all that you've given us!


pagantittysprinkles-blog  asked:

Could I maybe ask your opinion on non-traditional paganism and witchcraft? Like witches who don't cast circles, for example? Or pagans who don't have altars for whatever reason? If you've already answered something like this, I apologize.

Excellent question! Thank you :)

Well first, off unfortunately for you (and most of witches) you have been given the wrong idea about what is traditional and what isn’t. Casting circles is a ceremonial magic practice. Its true, witches do work with the geometrical shape of circles throughout, and the ceremonial circle is essential to some forms of witchcraft, especially wiccan witchcraft. However, it is not central to most forms of traditional witchcraft, which do tend to work with directions and shapes, but do not generally use the container defensive format of the (outer circle) wiccan circle.

We must start with what is the circle casting and its purpose. The circle casting is a sphere that contains energy to be released as a cone to some purpose (as decided by the coven or witches ahead of time) and to keep out dangerous spirits. In ceremonial magic the circle is to protect the sorcerer while they summon a demon to command into a nearby triangle. Some traditional witches do either, but many do another kind of working with space for certain kinds of ritual or don’t make any such action.

A few “circles” known in streams of traditional witchcraft (a variety of other kinds of witchcraft in existence prior to and contemporaneous to the public revelation of wicca) and reconstructed forms of witchcraft based on folklore and historical records are as follows:

The cross roads. Many witches work at the crossroads where three or four roads meet and work their magic there. Its a kind of acknowledgement that a witch owns her own fate and is her own god by admitting that she is the center of the universe where the directions or the parts of the world meet (north east west south or land sea and sky).

Treading the mill. Some traditions of witches circle not to protect, but to enter a special trance state. They look over their left shoulder and chant at an increasing tempo while pacing steadily round the circle. They descend into an underworld location and interact with the gods or spirits there.

These types forms are used by some kinds of traditional witches, but they are not the wiccan nor ceremonial circle. Yet, just as often traditional and non traditional witches do nothing of the sort at all. The just get to it and do their witchcraft wherever. Be it in their kitchen, the woods, their office, the bedroom, etc. The whole thing of casting a circle is often more of a spiritual thing, whereas doing some witchcraft is just a thing of the moment, do a spell to get a result. If you aren’t getting into a sacred space for spiritual workings you don’t need to do the whole circle casting. Most magic doesn’t call on spirits or energies outside the witch and the materials directly in front of him so there isn’t a need for him to worry about the whole spiritual world.

As for pagans who don’t have altars. Well I think most don’t. I personally love altars, I have four in my bedroom alone. I really get a lot out of them. But they are just a focus. The world around us is alive with spirit. I am an animist personally, but most pagans see gods and spirit and fairies and other soulful life all around them. A surface of decorations that create a focus and a special home for dedicated workings is really a huge help and adds something I can’t put into words. But it isn’t a requirement when really the whole world is alive and not all pagans are devoted to regular work with specific spirits, gods or fairies. A lot of pagans and witches just make whatever surface they are near suitable for doing their witchcraft or when they are doing magic or dealing with spirits, gods and fairies into a temporary altar if that’s what the project calls for.

I really rambled on there!!! Well if you have any follow up questions please send them.


Dethan Week: Day 6 - Angst

I just want to know what it feels like to touch something so pure; something I'm so sure of what it feels like to stand outside your door.  I'm unworthy;  I can see you're above me, but I can be lovely given the chance. I've been a mess since you've known me. I can't promise forever, but I'm working on it. If I can't hold you, can I give you a kiss?

Just want to send a huge thank you to the entire crew. Thank you for everything you've given to us with Wander Over Yonder, and it has been an incredible journey. It has helped out so many people in an incredible amount of ways, including helping me realize I want to work in audio/sound for animation. So, thank you guys all so much, and I hope everyone is having a good time with what they are working on now! Here's hoping for the future!

Thanks and good luck. It’s a fine life you aspire to. Worth all
the work you put into it.

berenkusmenoglu  asked:

hi!,I know that you've been asked this a lot but I want to make sure I get this right. From what I gathered CV is crucial and I loved your replies to other people and changed my accodingly. I went to many seminars given by people who work in Game Development Companies and saw that one of the best ways to show your work as a programmer is to have a blog of some sorts. My question is mainly about how a programmers' blog should look like from a gamedevs perspective. Thank you.

Remember the trifecta of things that I, the hiring manager, am looking for:

  1. An objective showing that you want to do the thing
  2. Experience showing you have done the thing
  3. Training showing you know how to do the thing

A blog can show me all of these elements if you structure and populate it with the right content. For a programming blog, what I primarily want to see are things that help reinforce all three of these qualities. As such, I would like to see:

  • Programming problems you have solved, and how you solved them
  • Project progress reports - what you are currently working on, how it is going, etc.
  • Post-mortem style retrospective breakdowns of solutions you have actually done, along with a critical view of what went right, what went wrong, and how you wish you could have done it in hindsight
  • Interesting programming principles you have learned about, why they are interesting, and how you would use them
  • News/events in the world of software engineering and what you think about it
