I wanted to make appreciation drawings for a very interesting, relevant, and important character that is sadly, so widely overlooked by the fandom. The guy who literally has all the answers to our questions about the Butterfly Monarchy and Mewni history. the guy who plays such a pivotal role in the show by teaching Star to understand her magic. the guy who is currently stolen away by Ludo right now. We cant forget him.
-She speaks almost entirely in monotone and struggles to pick up on other people’s use of tone and it’s meaning.
-She takes things very literally even by troll standards.
-Her quirk and tendancy to ramble are both reflections of this; She is easily confused and so tends to go out of her way to make herself understood.
-Its important to her to make sure her friends get along. She doesn’t always know how to do this which has led to her reputation as being meddlesome.
-She isn’t as sensitive to bright lights and colours as other trolls are. Bright colourful patterns are good visual stims!
-Making clothes is a special interest and a stim. There are lots of fabrics she enjoys touching and designing different outfits is facinating.
-After meeting the human kids, human culture becomes a special interest. Particularly human sarcasm. Especially particularly one specific human.
-Other special interests include gardening (i personally love the HC that she can “speak flower”), paranornal lore, and trashy romance novels (They Are For Research Honestly).
-After she learns control her glowing, she uses it as a stim as it gives her a warm tingly feeling.
-Also Rose. Rose is a living breathing stim. You can infodump on her and she’s always interested, her hair is soft and fluffy and GOLDEN and shes great.
Ok so YES I love the long distance internet friends au but consider! Long distance wrong number au
honestly anon, thank you so much for this tonight.
i took long distance and made it loooooong distance to the point where it probably doesn’t make sense, but ~~suspension of disbelief~~
texts between adrien and the mystery person (wow i wonder who) are in italics because theyre in french. also i didnt want to bother anyone so ‘numéro inconnu’ is from google translate so im sorry for….that
finally i tried to streamline how i do texts for this just because the way i do texts is usually a lot clunkier? so it looks more like wanna chat but isnt in like….the contact names are still what the other person would see? like when it says pretty boy thats ninos contact name for adrien and—
frick just tell me if its too confusing and tell me how to fix it im really tired
2:51 PM unknown number: Did this work????? unknown number: a;slkdfjadj its me btw unknown number: I mean duh its me who else would it be unknown number: If you screenshot this conversation al I swear to go d Ill kill you
Adrien squints at his phone. Not only does he not know this number, but the text are in French. That’s…unusual. He thinks that it’s a lucky coincidence that his father is from France and insisted he learned the language before replying.
summary: As an actor, Dan’s job is to fall in love. In order for him to do a good job in a film, he has to fall in love with the role he’s playing, he has to love what he’s doing, so it won’t feel like a job.
It’s just that it wasn’t Dan’s job to fall in love with his co-star.
Or, how actor Dan Howell keeps getting cockblocked by literally everyone while he tries to woo-hoo his co-star, Phil Lester.
a/n: *sweats* writing? What’s that? I can’t seem to understand that word. Wow. Sorry for that long-ass inactivity. Huge writer’s block, my guys. I do have another work that I was writing before this, but that one was so heavily planned and so complicated that I took a break from writing to. write. again. so here’s this. It’s silly fluff, basically. I love writing silly clichéd stuff.
Wow, so first of all I AM VERY SORRY. Especially to the sweet anon that requested this. This took way too long and I am sorry. I spent a while in the hospital, found out I have spherocytosis, and got my gall bladder removed. This means LOTS of makeup work. Yeah lmao I’ll stop whining now. Anyway, here it is! Enjoy! (●´ω｀●)
Request: hey! i was wondering if you could do this prompt? Dan used to pick on the reader in middle school and then they went to separate high schools but now she is in the same college as Dan and she became hot as hell and really popular
Yes! I can certainly try you sweet, patient anon!
The older you got the more you realized confidence is hot as hell. When you were younger you were teased for how you dressed and for being one of the only girls in middle school who didn’t wear makeup. But, come to find out, the most attractive thing people found in each other was confidence, the self love and trust to strut into a room and act like you own the place.
So, that’s just what you did, walking into your first day working in the campus coffee shop. And although the way you carried yourself made you feel sexy as fuck, you had become the queen of makeup and halfway through high school your boobs had finally come in. Just to reiterate, you were a goddess.
Your new boss greeted you, told you a bit more about the campus, and you began; how exciting! Well, not really. Few students trickled in, and you had started to entertain yourself by sitting behind the counter and decorating a binder. You got off in about an hour and would have an hour to be in your first class of the day. You heard the entrance open, but didn’t bother looking up. “Welcome.”
You heard him yelling something, but it certainly wasn’t at you. You looked up, and the stranger was yelling something out the door, presumably to a friend outside, and his back was turned to you. Cute hair, tall, cute bum. Oh, without even seeing his face you could tell he was fine. Suddenly he turned around, catching you looking at his bum, and when you looked up at his eyes you could not believe who it was you were checking out.
He chuckled and you looked back down at your binder. Your middle school bully who you were certain you would never see again just caught you checking out his ass. Splendid. Hopefully he wouldn’t notice who you were?
He approached the counter and you willed yourself to stand and look at him. “Good morning Dan-” SHIT.
He looked a bit taken back but somewhat amused, “Um, what?”
“I said good morning, how can I help you?”
He studied your eyes, causing you to blush a little, then the realization washed over his face. “Oh shit, Y/N is that you? Y/N Y/L/N?”
You groaned, “How could you tell?”
He laughed, “Well you certainly look a hell of a lot different, but your eyes are the same. And that dorky necklace.”
Were you flattered? Offended? Both? “Well, I’m not the same girl you knew back then so don’t pretend you still know me, and I don’t intend on you coming to know me again. How can I help you?”
“Where did you go? I remember my parents telling me you had moved out of the neighborhood.”
“Where I moved is none of your business. How can I help you?”
“Why are you being so defensive?”
The built up emotion within you finally met the surface. “Do you remember anything about growing up? How much you teased me? How you said I was ugly for wearing my hair up and not wearing makeup and how my teeth were gross and how I looked like I dressed myself in the dark and how you felt bad for the guy who’d end up dancing with me at school functions?”
Dan was very taken back and took a second to collect his thoughts, then spoke in a whisper, “You remember exactly what I said? Everything?”
Your gaze shifted from his face to the floor as you quoted him, word for word. “You are the ugliest girl at this school and you will never, ever, have friends if your face remains an instant repellent.”
He looked down at his own feet, and back up at you. “Y/N.” You looked up and were instantly immersed in the sincerity in his eyes. “I’m very sorry for what I said as a kid. I didn’t mean a single word of it. If anything, you were the prettiest girl I knew. When we were friends before I admired how creative and productive and funny you were. I guess I really, really liked you Y/N.”
You blushed a little then gave a smirk, “Just so you know, I have lots of friends, not because I wear makeup but because of who I am. A face doesn’t define who you are, the inside does.”
He gave the prettiest chuckle you had ever heard. “You’re right, I guess I didn’t know that back then.”
“So what do you want? You’re kinda at my place of work and I am assuming before this chat you were wandering in for a coffee.”
“Tell me about your friends.”
You snickered. “I’m friends with everyone, can you believe it? The people love me. How can I help you?”
He laughed. “I was hoping you’d forgive me for what I did back then, and I’d love to become friends again.”
“Forgiven. But you still haven’t ordered anything Daniel.”
“You have got lots of friends now Y/N, but what I want to know is do you have a boyfriend?”
Smile to smile, both of you very genuine. "What do you want Dan?”
“Unlike the hallways, the lunchroom was suspiciously silent. There was a tension that filled the space, immediately setting Alex on edge. Navigating through the crowd, he managed to slip to the front with ease. In any other case, his small stature would be a brittle thorn in his side, but on the occasion it had its advantages. The scene that laid before him was one that would not soon be forgotten. Lafayette was towering on top of a table, shouting in a mixture of French and English at another boy who was standing on the ground looking up smugly at the enraged teenager. There was a small circle of students blocking entrance to the faceoff, keeping any administration interference at bay. Teenagers are like sharks, Alex thought, a fight is like a drop of blood.”
Aaaaaand here is yet another drawing from @damn-man-ham-fam‘s brilliant fic. I can’t seem to stop drawing Hamilton how did this happen
Since Blizzard was so keen to shut down Nostalrius, they should open legacy servers of their own. Maybe one of each expansion, so people can experience each one in their glory days (I was too young to really experience the first 3 expansions, and I was unsubbed for most of MoP). Maybe they could add leveling boosts for the ones after classic, because leveling took so long in those days. Idk I just want a way to go back freely and I think they could be able to do that if they wanted to.
Syn - This is to everyone on the vanilla server issue. I’m going to play devil’s advocate here and just say that although yes that would be cool, because of time and money they probably really don’t have time to do something like that. Imagine the vast amount of new servers they’d have to open up, plus, spending time on that would take a huge part of the team away from the current content game. Besides all that it would split the player base almost in half, or if they opened separate expacs, would split the players in quarters. Did you see what happened to Runescape? I would love to be able to fully experience vanilla, but I just don’t think it is or ever will be viable.
it took a while bc i wanted to create a new account for it, ill prolly put up other playlists as well for different moods- im already thinkin abt doin a sad one !
it also took a while bc i had to double check each song to fit certain criteria i felt had to be reached to put it here. all of these do not have lyrics and i tried to minimize using songs that have (too many for too long) voices in them in general
plus i made sure that nothing got too loud, but if it did have slightly grander moments, i made sure there was a decent build-up to it so there wouldn’t be surprises
wow i didnt mean to ramble but i rly like this playlist!! it was fun to put together and i hope you all like it!
Ok. It’s official. I have gone full Hyperion. Took me waaaaaay too long to do this and I’m so sorry for everything. Gosh what have I done. I kinda have radishezrom and dequidt to thank for for this unhealthy (but enjoyable) Hyperion obsession…. Help. My current wallpaper is the bottom one haha.
Also I’ll most likely upload the individual characters somewhere down the road. When I start organising things. In the meantime, I hope this is pleasing enough. Thanks and have a nice day all!
EDIT: I resized it so I hope it looks less pixelated! Sorry about that guys. :P
Hello! First off I want to say that I just love your art and how you use colors is honestly so amazing??? Wow. Anyways, i've been struggling with digital art as I have been doing traditional for a long time, what would you suggest to make digital art more comfortable or easier? Thank you!
thank u……. you are too kind……………………… and hmmmm that’s a hard one because it took me at least a year or two to get the hang of using digital art when i was in middle school at the time… but I heard that it’s easier to get the hang of it if you get a tablet where you can draw on the screen itself instead of using a pad and pen while staring at the computer screen– This is true tho b/c you’re so used to drawing traditionally where you keep your eyes on the paper while drawing rather than trying to instinctively move the pen while keeping your eyes straight forward :0 This list of suggestions have some pretty good Cintiq alternatives, including the one I use currently (Yiynova msp19u+). I can also recommend getting a Microsoft Surface Pro 2, 3 or 4 as well because pen pressure and stabilization works fine on them.
How I got used to digital without those smancy fancy tablets though was to trace my own traditional artworks that I scanned and opened up in Photoshop or Sai. I would try to ink them and then color with whatever brush I laid my eyes on :v But I was hella awkward with the tablet until like 1-2 years later so don’t expect any immediate results because it really takes a lot of practice…
