yes i really tagged them all

Pro tip: If you know someone has issues with their immune system, tell them if you get sick. If you have plans, let them know you’re sick (yes, even if you’re “mostly over it”). If they choose to risk it, then at least it’s their choice, and they can take extra steps to avoid catching your bug.

If they ask to reschedule, or do go but refuse to touch you or get to close, don’t get angry. Don’t be offended. They’re literally just trying to look out for their health.

Even if it’s a scratchy throat, or you feel a little stuffed up, and you’re not “really sick”, still say something.

Also, thank you so much for all the likes and reblogs, and for the kind words in the tags! And yes, I do read them! Thank you everyone! :)

blue neighbourhood || troye sivan 

I started listening to Welcome to Night Vale recently and I think I fell in love, thanks again for showing me this shit @silversatori! xD

I got curious if there was any fanart of him and checked out the tumblr tags (in hindsight maybe not the best idea, I might have spoilered myself a little lol) but I wanted to draw Cecil as well at least once and since for all I know he has little to no taste in fashion (like me) I crammed up some imo shitty looking clothes and threw them together in this doodle
And yes, that is a friggin Jat (jeans+hat)

My overall design for him as it is now isn’t really mine though, I just kind of threw together all kinds of designs I saw and liked and crammed it all up into this out of both lazyness and tiredness :’D

I know I’m hanging behind on things, but I hope that you’ll (after a too long period of not posting any art lmao) like it~

how many people in this picture are bending their knees or leaning forward so shepard doesn’t look so short? TRICK question it is ALL OF THEM. 

disclaimer before I inevitably get people whinging in my inbox and in the tags about how the heights/weights are inaccurate to the game: YES I AM AWARE THAT IN-GAME ALL THE FEMALE CHARACTERS HAVE ESSENTIALLY THE EXACT SAME MODEL THEREFORE THE SAME HEIGHT AND WEIGHT. I am choosing to totally fucking disregard that fact because it makes for really really boring character design.

Keep reading

Some blushy Pittoos for you fantastic followers (I’m not too sure how many of you also like Pit) just to say thanks for sticking with me till now! I’ve gotten some new followers too, and I really appreciate those who go through my entire blog to give a like to everything… it.. it really means a lot that you like my stuff!

So I’ve redesigned Chika to fit into Suna more but also I wanted to draw @whereislaurita ’s babes because have you seen them?????????

The ending will always be sad as hell but I’m really glad Jyn and Cassian had each other in the end. Like these are two people who have been alone for so long and have lost just about everyone/everything they ever loved. They’ve both done a lot of stuff they regret, whether it was just to survive or for the Rebel cause. But they gave their lives to save the Rebellion and held each other in the end, knowing that the person in their arms understood them and cared and for once they were not alone, and they knew that they succeeded and it was WORTH IT. All those years of loneliness and sacrifice hadn’t been for nothing. I’m just really glad they chose to write and film it that way. Now I’m all emo again, dammit.

(Yes this is spoilery, but I’m tagging it appropriately soooo.)

When will Ao3 finally introduce a main character search option

I am so tired of all those shitty writers who put a gazzilion tags to trick people into reading their fic. When I search the tags for a character I want to read about them. It’s really shitty when instead of a story about your favorite character you get  crap where they  have like two lines or hell they are just mentioned in passing.

Ditto for finally implementing an exclusion option both for ships and characters Yes I know that if you input it a specific way you can exclude some characters but this should be an outright option. This is literally the only category where FF.net is vastly superior to AO3 and I still can’t understand why they won’t fix their search engine

anonymous asked:

I have questions: 1. Why do a bunch of people hate the Tumblr tag (is it reposting?)? 2. How can we as a community on Tumblr make the Tumblr tag better, if we have like set rules or something?

YES IT’S ALL THE REPOSTING. There have been so many art theft incidents just because people are desperate to get noticed by Dan and Phil. It’s really selfish of people who repost, and hurtful to the original artists if their stuff doesn’t get noticed from them. Dan mentioned in his recent live show about only submitting stuff if YOU have created it yourself, and that if you mess that up people will attack you on Tumblr, because once he had to deal with an incident involving my art - and yeah it doesn’t feel good at all. 

The rules would just follow common sense in a content-commons setting I should think. Just… don’t repost? I dunno? Like, unfortunately it’s basically impossible to prevent art theft in an online community. Basically only human decency is the answer, and unfortunately, and pessimistically maybe, I don’t have a lot of faith that that trait will 100% hold up. 

I am going to be making a video about art theft soon - I’ve been saying this for a long time - that will hopefully convey my rage for art theft, and hopefully some people will appreciate how annoying it is, and maybe stop doing it (I know some people don’t even realize that reposting/tracing is wrong, because they have told me so in the past). I really wish that either Dan or Phil could make a similar video, because they have such a big audience and it would reach a lot more people than mine ever could (I actually asked Dan to, back when we were communicating about art theft, but yeah I never expected him to actually do it haha). 

Sigh. I just really hope, if another Tumblr Tag pops up, there is less art theft - and also for Dan’s current “Dan Memes of 2016″ video submissions. We can only hope! 

Disney Should Make Another Native American Movie

**Tl;dr at the end**

With all the shit happening with Natives right now and the upcoming Moana, I feel the next Disney movie they work on should be about Native Americans

I know there’s already three: Pocahontas, Brother Bear, and The Emperor’s New Groove (yes, Kuzco counts). But none of them are really about Native culture. Brother Bear’s the closest, but they’re Inuits, which has a different culture than mainland U.S.A. natives, which is what I’m talking about specifically.

Now, as native(Apache), I wouldn’t really be offended if it was a Native “princess”, it could be the same as Mulan where she’s part of the lineup but not an actual princess, or how some people consider Meg as part of the lineup even though she’s not. I don’t know about other natives, but that doesn’t really offend me.

Since Brother Bear isn’t very popular, and not many people know The Emperor’s New Groove is also a Native American movie and it not being as popular now, Pocahontas is the only Native American movie the vast majority know about. That’s not good tbh.

I didn’t grow up with Pocahontas and the first time I saw it was like a year or two ago (I grew up w/ Kenai & Kuzco) and MANY people call it out for being historically inaccurate. For me personally, historically inaccurate movie don’t bother me. If I know it’s incorrect & I enjoy it, I’m fine. But since learning more about my culture in the past half year probably, I realize the impact Pocahontas has on the Native community. People think that that’s how all Natives act, how all tribes are, how all tribes look, which is like 100% false. Each tribe is almost the same way countries are; there may be similarities, but it’s not the same in every tribe.

This thought actually popped up in my head when I went to Disneyland & California Adventure last weekend and saw the full trailer for Moana. I’ve been super excited for Moana for a while now, I think since I found out it was being released this year, not next year. I’ve been watching interviews, the trailers & teasers, everything. My favorite thing is that the team studied Polynesian culture for 5 years to show the culture as best as they could. That really stuck with me & made me think a lot. My gramma is Apache & I was at her house when I went to Disneyland, and with that and the fact I have a research paper for school about Native Americans, I thought, “Why not another Native movie?”

I already have a concept in mind for a movie, but it’s very incomplete so I won’t share it right now. But if they did make another Native movie, I think they should make it about only the tribes, no settlers. They already did that, so I don’t think it would be as impactful if they did that again. It would just be like a 2nd Pocahontas. Pre-Colombus, there was so much that happened within tribes and with other tribes that there is MORE than enough to make a movie for it.

This was something I was probably never going to share, but I has so much pride in my ethnicity, I want this to be heard. I feel like another movie, especially now, would help give us Natives more recognition, make people realize we’re not extinct, and maybe open people’s minds to the fact that we deserve the same rights as everyone else.

Again, just a suggestion, as a Native girl who wants some native representation with the most influential business I can think of.

Tl;dr: Disney should make another Native American movie about the tribes, not settlers

MY SPOTIFY PLAYLISTS

okay i know some people may not care but i just really want to explain my spotify playlists here and share them okay yes cool they’re pretty self-explanatory but just let me live okay

ABSOLUTE LOVES: Okay so this is basically just all of my favourite songs (it’s a big playlist because I have a lot of favourite songs) but it all kind of varies between styles and tempos and all that jazz. This is the most likely playlist to be changed because I’m constantly finding new music. 

SLEEPY SLEEP: This playlist is probably my favourite because it’s helped me so so much, it’s a collection of soothing and slow songs, and it’s obviously really good for getting to sleep, but also for calming down and just relaxing. 

STUDY PLAYLIST: This playlist mostly consists of soft and nice but not distracting songs, but not slow ones to make you sleepy, just not necessarily something that would get you up and dancing instead of well, studying. 

SHOWER PLAYLIST: This is kind of just filled with fun and upbeat songs that you’d want to sing in the shower, and even when you’re out of the shower and getting ready, I guess just songs to get you excited for wherever you’re going and whatever you’re doing. I’d hope that you wouldn’t listen to all the songs during one shower though… (haha wow sarah you’re funny).

RAINY DAY PLAYLIST: Okay this song works for both literal rainy days and emotional rainy days, since it’s really just a bunch of songs to snuggle up in blankets and cry to. Kind of lame, I know. But it’s nice to just let out emotion and feel all dramatic and sad every now and then.

PICK ME UP PLAYLIST: This is kind of the opposite to the rainy day playlist, as it is full of songs to just dance and muck about to. Whether you need it as a mood-lifter, something to wake up and get energised with or something else, it’s sure to be a jam (just a warning, there are quite a few beyonce songs on there so if you don’t like beyonce, unfollow me on all social media right now) 

COLLABORATIVE PLAYLIST???: Okay so this was an experiment to see if I could join our creative forces together and find somewhere that everyone can share their favourite songs but it kind of flopped so please help and add songs you like so we can work together. 

OKAY COOL THAT IS ALL FOR NOW PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND FOLLOW ME AND STUFF COOL I LOVE YOU ALL.

Had fun with Violet tonight. Made my zillionth knit pattern a few days ago and wanted to see it in action :)
Went for a casual business look. Violet can really rock any outfit <3
I really love that EA blazer, the only thing bugging me are those stripes on the sleeves. I disguised them as best as I could with the patterns, so they’re preptty invisible after removing the specular with Velocitygrasses mod, but I know they’re still there…this would be a good outfit to change up. Maybe add longer sleeves too… *writes mental note*

Okay, so I suddenly remembered miraculous ladybug and accidentally created an au where all villians are in some ‘gangs’ that compete with each other in some teenage-and-a-little-bit-of-ghetto world. It is still sketchy so uuuuhhh

…. Here we see Evillustrator who draws graffiti and Timebreaker – an illegal racer (I guess?????). I really ship Nath and Alix in canon (platonically), therefore in this au they hang out together most of the time

(note to self: draw the rest of the villians…… and Evillustrator drawing a graffiti bc I love graffiti)

((still don’t know what should I do with ladybug and chat noir I mean they need to be in this au right?))

Second Chances

A/N: I really wanted to make it angst and like make y’all cry but then I changed my mind because I just got off of work and I’m tired and and not in the mood to destroy lives ;) lol so I hope y’all enjoy haha.

Pairing: Natasha/Reader

Warning: None?

Word count: 1,186

The request: Y’all wanted a part two of Pray You Catch Me so here I am giving you something. And yes, it’s another song fic but honestly you don’t have to read the lyrics it’ll still make sense without them lol.

Tagging people who might enjoy this: @trustin-me @shamvictoria11 @tjhammomd @mangosoldier @writingruna @capsbuchanan @catwomvn @bovaria @jarnesbrnes [If you liked to be tagged in anything just say so and if I tagged anyone who doesn’t want to be tagged just tell me and I’ll stop lol]

Pray You Catch Me

Originally posted by dj-cotrona

We build sand castles
That washed away
I made you cry
When I walked away
And although I promised
That I couldn’t stay
Every promise don’t work out that way
Every promise don’t work out that way

You didn’t stop crying until the taxi stopped.

And by the time you exited the cab with your bags, you were immediately met with Wanda. Before you said anything, she hugged you. “I know,” she murmured and fresh tears rolled down your face as you hugged Wanda back.

It didn’t take long before Wanda ushered you inside with your bags. Not even hesitating to letting you stay with her for however long you needed.

Dishes smashed on my counter
From our last encounter
Pictures snatched out of the frame
Bitch I snatched out your name
And your face
What is it about?
That I can’t erase baby
When every promise don’t work out that way
No no baby
When every promise don’t work out that way

Once your taxi disappeared from view, Natasha finally broke.

You were gone, and you had a reason to leave and it was all Natasha’s fault. She knew what she did was wrong, and she shouldn’t have done what she had done but it was too late to change her mistakes. She had broken your heart.

Tears welled up in her eyes at the thought and she drew a shaky breath.

It wasn’t until the first tear rolled down her face when a crash resonated in the apartment. She was in the kitchen and a broken dish was at her feet and then another appeared, and another, until everything breakable dish was smashed and ruined. But the tears never stopped.

Two days passed before Sam and Steve appeared at Natasha’s apartment. They came concerned, and also on the behalf of Bucky who said she wasn’t answering her phone. And when she didn’t answer the first few times, they immediately used the spare key to get inside.

And they didn’t expect the mess they saw when they stepped inside.

The kitchen floor and counters were littered with broken dishes, the table was on it’s side, the pictures that used to hang on the wall were shattered and on the floor, and in the middle of the mess, Natasha was laying on the living room floor.

“Nat, are you okay?!” Steve immediately asked and both boys rushed to her. Sam got there first, and gently cradled her in his arms. She had dried tears on her face and her eyes were bloodshot red.

“I can’t forget her,” she mumbled and Sam shared a look with Steve. They knew you had left, and they knew why. “I want her back,” Natasha cried and that’s when Steve spoke up.

“Well then, you’ll have to win her back.”

And your heart is broken
Cause I walked away
Show me your scars
And I won’t walk away
And I know I promised that I couldn’t stay
Every promise don’t work out that way
Every promise don’t work out that way

“She doesn’t want to see you,” Wanda said firmly with a stern look on her face. She had the door only slightly open, but she was blocking the path for Natasha who was at the door so she couldn’t come in.

“Wanda, please.” Natasha softly pleaded, her eyes round and big as she asked Wanda to get you. It had been a week since the whole ordeal between you two went down and she needed you back. But Wanda stayed put and Natasha sighed. “Please Wanda, I need to talk to her. I-” she sounded broken and desperate and you bit your lip as you hid in the kitchen but you then caved.

You sighed, and emerged from the kitchen. “Wanda, it’s okay.” You spoke softly watching as Natasha looked at you with wide eyes. Wanda looked over her shoulder to you, her eyes softening and she raised her eyebrow.

“You sure?” she asked and you nodded before she turned to Natasha giving her a stern look before leaving and going upstairs.

You quietly walked to the door, and then stepped outside and shut the door behind you. Natasha gave you the space you needed and you crossed your arms defensively over your chest.

-

Natasha heart pounded and she just wanted to pull you in her arms and hug you but with the way you were standing she knew you hadn’t forgiven her and that was understandable. “Hi,” she said softly and you looked up meeting her eyes.

-

Your own heart was thudding crazily, you’ve missed Natasha just as much as she missed you. “Hi,” you replied and leaned against the wall.

Natasha took a step closer, and you tensed ever so slightly causing her to wince. “I’m sorry,” she said her guilt could be seen through her eyes. “And I know sorry probably isn’t enough for you but I’m sorry. I’m sorry I didn’t treat you the way I should have when we were together, and I’m sorry for what I did, and I’m sorry it hurt you.” She confessed. “I never deserved you to begin with and when I had you I should have treated you better.” She continued and you looked away.

“I don’t understand why you just couldn’t break up with me to be with who you really wanted to be.” You said, the hurt evident in your voice.

“Because I want to be with you!” She exclaimed. “But I didn’t realize how much I wanted to be with you until it was too late,” she murmured and you looked over at her again raising a brow and giving her an impassive look.

“And what does Bucky think of all of this?” You replied and Natasha never broke eye contact with you.

“Bucky knows we’re over with and he knows I used to love him and-” Natasha stopped for a second and your arms uncrossed as your eyebrows furrowed. “And he knows I love you, and that I will always love you.” She confessed and your eyes widened.

You hadn’t heard her say those words to you for a while and actually mean them. You could hear the sincerity in her voice and you bit your lip. “How can I trust you?” You asked and Natasha nodded.

“I know you’re hesitant, but if you give me a second chance I will prove to you that I only want you.” She said and took another step closer to you, her hands grabbing yours. Her hope rose when you didn’t pull back.

You stayed silent for a few moments and just as Natasha opened her mouth to say more you spoke, “one chance.” Natasha’s whole face lit up and she pulled you into a hug, holding you close.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you!” She said and you missed her hugs but still pulled away causing her smile to falter slightly.

“One chance, if you blow it that’s your fault.” You warned with a finger and she nodded her eagerly.

“I won’t disappoint you, I promise.” She said and pulled you into her arms again.

Alright so i just finished that merlin book i ordered online the other day and honestly this thing was so merthur like :

ok, so we have the usual banter between the two, nothing really gay but it’s cute anyway

But it escalates quickly.Then we have Arthur getting all protective towards his bae

And there are suggestive paragraphs like this one

Or this one where Arthur is getting emotional thinking about Merlin

Even Morgana is into them

Oh yes he is a lot more than that. And Uther blames himself for being the reason why his son is queer

I often wondered : am i reading a fanfiction or an official book??

?????

Awwww thank you so much for this message!! ♡ It’s really nice of you to say that omg.

To answer your question - YES! Kate Beaton is one of my favourite illustrators!! I really love her simple style in Princess and the Pony, and how expressive those big eyes can be. Noelle Stevenson, Rebecca Sugar and Quinten Blake are my other favourites and big big inspirations for me. All thee of them can make their pieces look so simple but…sooo expressive and alive. And cute! That’s how I want my art to be :D
