Whats your opinion on the headcanon that bakugou is hard of hearing because of how loud his explosions are? If you dont mind my asking
I think I answered this q on this blog already? Maybe? But anyway, I don’t exactly mind it, but I can’t say I share the headcanon myself - for one, because I’m of the opinion that their bodies are built to withstand a safe use of their quirks (a bit like you can’t break a leg by simply walking, you know), so in general I’m not a fan of headcanons that include damages caused by simply doing what their bodies were born to do?
But also because generally, even under the assumption that his body isn’t made to hold up with his explosions, isn’t it awfully convenient how only his ears take damage in these scenarios? What about his eyes? How come he can still see with no problems even with the continuous exposure to the explosions’ light? How about his hair? How come he can stand so close to fire without it ever being damaged by it? His palms have thicker skin and we know that thanks to his UA file, but what about the rest of his body? How come he can stand smack in the middle of an Howitzer Impact without getting even slightly burnt? When you say “only his ears aren’t made to withstand his explosions” what you’re telling me is that his whole body is tailord to deal with his quirk but his ears, and that just feels unrealistic to me - by which I mean, when this is the scenario we’re talking about, you can’t give the fault of the damage to Bakugou’s quirk. It’s a problem his body has, not a natural consequence of having that sort of quirk. And imho with those premises you sort of end up with a different kind of story, you’re supposed to write it differently - that’s what I think, at least
Maybe the reason Baku raises his voice so often is because he can’t hear very well, which isn’t due to his explosions, rather, he was born with bad hearing to protect him from taking damage by them.. and then his other senses are sharper to even it out, and his body can even subconsciously notice air vibrations, resulting in really fast reflexes.
Ah, this is also another reason why I’m not a huge fan of the headcanon - don’t get me wrong! If you like it then go on, I’m not trying to stop anyone from enjoying ideas and possibilities!! But personally I like Bakugou not having any reason to be loud-mouthed and rude, that’s just his personality and how the environment he grew up in made him, and lately I’ve seen the hc used to justify his behaviour more than I like? Bakugou being an asshole is just who he is, and I love it! I love that his life made him like that and I love that he’s working hard to fix that flaw, giving him an external reason, something he has no control over, to justify his personality changes the core of his character too much, and that’s not something I’d ever want to do tbh
And it’s also cool to think that he was somewhat genetically engineered to be better in a fight to compensate for a lack of earing (though again, why only his ears and not his eyes or his sense of tact too), but that goes to cut on all the hard work he put in becoming as good as he is, right? If that’s what you like than who am I to stop you! But Bakugou’s hardworking nature is one of the things I love about him, I don’t really feel like taking away from him all the effort and work he put through the years in becoming as good as he is now
So many boys and young men who are
physically and sexually abused never come forward about it due to the
stigma. Child abuse awareness month was in April, but this is
something we should always be vigilant about.

“Man is not a machine that can be remodeled for quite other purposes as occasion demands, in the hope that it will go on functioning as regularly as before but in a quite different way. He carries his whole history with him; in his very structure is written the history of mankind.”

NYCC 2017 - All the Love for Fairy Tail & Hiro Mashima
My greatest wish besides having the chance to meet Hiro
Mashima was to personally thank him for Fairy Tail. Ever since the series
ended, I have had an overwhelming desire to communicate to Mashima-sensei that
I have developed lasting and irreplaceable friendships, a guild of sorts,
through Fairy Tail. His series had such an indescribable impact upon me personally
and my interpersonal-relationships. This is my unbelievable experience at my first con in my very first cosplay, which of course had to be Juvia Locker, my absolute favorite character!
More beneath the cut - This story is long, even though I excluded many amazing things that others have already reported on! I hope you enjoy the story and the NYCC con images below!
Hello! I don't draw, at all, by I used to paint on canvas and I stopped a while ago. I've been struggling with depression and as a way to figure this shit out I would very much like to get back in touch with my artistic side. I'm just wondering is you have any tips/tutorials for someone who never drew anything ever (and is also left handed if that's important)
Being left handed isn’t important unless you use leaking/inky pens that smudge easily. I have spent a while thinking about this one because I know that depression is a very serious subject.
Something that I have learned from posting art on here for a couple of years is that we should draw for no one but ourselves (commissions aside) Never let the pressure of letting people see your drawings/paintings get to you because it’s something we do for our own enjoyment. One of the few things that gets me down on this website is people who think they are entitled to my drawings. I’ll often get comments on a drawing of a group of characters that are like “why didn’t you draw this character too?” which is annoying because obviously I didn’t draw them because I didn’t want to. Or a serious hatred of mine “their hair colour is a couple of shades different to what I personally imagined so you are obviously wrong”. People can be really shit man so if your depression has anything to do with that, work on trying to block out the people that will judge and be nasty about your art.
Now drawing is fun, it isn’t supposed to be perfect all the time, I recommend getting a sketchbook for only basic, basic sketches. It is so freeing to have something to just sribble in and not have to make things finished pieces in.
I wanted to do a simple little design looking forward hopefully for season 4 :)
If you’re going to Red Dragon Con 3 this weekend, come find me! I should have about 250 A3 posters of this design to give away. Keep an eye on my Twitter if you need to find me :) And I might put a few cheap in my Etsy if I have any left on Monday.
Oh my gooooood!!! I'm not going to pax!! I tried for the last two fucking years and still nothing!! And I bet you're going to say "oh well" or "that's your lost" because you constantly get attention for making chibi's and you're actually proud of your art! And I'm just like forgotten?? I don't know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry for wasting your time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
1. i’m sorry if you think i’m one of those ppl that does art just to be famous and all that crap, i’m sorry if you think i am. i’m certainly am not and at least trying not to be that person. i do art because its a thing i enjoy the most, a thing where it gave me emotion where i should let it all out, or be happy. so do me a favor and NEVER assumed me as one of those people who’re only in it for the fame, because i despise those ppl tbh.
so pls, if you can.. just… think of me as one of your friend who’re really chill and like to post silly art for a hobby. :)
2. i’m sorry that 2 years that you didn’t make it to see the ppl that you wanna meet. tell you what, at least you have the materials and the “feeling” that you wanna go. i certainly don’t have that “i wanna meet this ppl irl” (sorry jack, mark, tyler, amy <<especially you boo :’’D) just because.. i’m not one of “those” ppl? i mean like if i did meet em than i’m thankful, but sadly that thing will never happened because “reality”. i guess, i’m just a chill person. i never mind this kind of things, so lucky for you for not being in my position if you wanna meet your fav youtuber, cuz that would’ve sucked.
and.. probs yer not muslim like me, trump ain’t hatin ya as much as he hates me lol, so you’ll have a chance, don’t give up darl! ;D
SO! I hit 900 followers not too long ago and I was thinking I should do something since I keep missing follower milestones (666 eluded me sadly…)
I never thought I would be able to hit such a high number of followers on any of my blogs, let alone one that revolves around art and humor. I’m really grateful to everyone that follows, sends asks, and especially those of you who leave nice stuff in the tags! I’m always lookin at my tags and any comments mean a lot to me!
>Gotta be following this blog! >Reblog and Likes are seperate entries (max. of 2 entries) >I have a right to refuse the request >If winners don’t respond within the week, I will pick a new winner >The art doesn’t absolutely have to be BSD, though it is my preference so that I know the characters >Will discuss what I can and can’t do privately with winners
Prizes: (sorry none of the example art is actually bsd woops)
>1st Clean lineart of one character, no color OR Sketch of up to 2 characters, with flat colors, will be much cleaner than the example shown!
>2nd Monochrome bust sketch of one character or, messy b/w sketch with up to two characters
Depending on how much I’m capable of, there may be two second place winners! This will end when I hit 1000 followers, hopefully not too long of a wait!
This is a gift of mine I would love to share. While It can be expressed in written word for you. The way your energy looks, sounds, and moved. It can also move onto the canvas. There is can become easier to see, and as more opportunity for new discoveries of yourself.
In the past I have done these and was quite proud of what I could do. It is also a perfect time for them to come back into sight. Now in my personal view is a great time for self insight and becoming more intuitive with how your inner workings are.
It will be Two dollars flat. No matter how much I write, or the energy it takes. It will be a simple rate of two dollars per reading.
The Energy Paintings
The prices for these will vary on the detail of which you want. Starting from 10 dollars to 50. Prices will be discussed in private either through private messages or via email ( email@example.com ) . Payment plans are always open!
Any specifics you want me to look for or add should be noted before payment arrangements. Some things are more risky or more draining to do. Once again all things Needed to be told just let me know. I will never judge you.
I never felt special.
No one ever listens.
& Do you think I’m scared of a woman?
I just wanna take you home. & Are you ever going to tell him? & It makes me wanna be all yours. & If you love somebody, better tell them while they’re here.
If you read my previous post, you would know that I recently bought my Indie Coffee Passport. You would also know that my first stop using the passport would be Cafe 1880…
And here we are! Why did I chose this place as the first location? Partially by gut feeling and partially because it’s on my way to school. I haven’t heard much about this place other than from the passport. Which is why I wanted to try it: pure curiosity.
My main fear when going here was its proximity to UQAM University. Although being close to a university is great for the cafe, as a cafe crawler I am always scared to show up and find 0 available seats. It’s the worst feeling when you’ve transited for a good 45 minutes only to find out even that little smaller-than-a-laptop table by the bathroom is taken. Especially, I was going to a cafe this morning mainly to work on a Lab Report and I would be “devastated” if I couldn’t find a proper seat to complete it. But I did. No excuse to procrastinate because this place was pretty empty when I walked in.
I appreciated the seating arrangement here because they had 2 average sized tables with multiple chairs (YAS), many smaller high tables for two and a bar that goes along the window where you can enjoy sunlight. And they were close to plugs: essential when your laptop is old and dies in about half an hour.
The decor of this cafe was exceptional. Mainly because they had drawn a caffeine molecule on the wall. I should get that tattooed to be honest. The atmosphere of the place is dark since the walls are black and has a few bright accents. One one of the walls, a huge “1880″ is painted in turquoise (like their logo). Gorgeous!
The coffee (AKA latte (I (always) order a latte (woops)) was delicious. Even my boyfriend loved it, and he hates lattes or coffee in general. Don’t worry, I still love him though (gotta accept each others’ flaws). The latte art was very well drawn and didn’t bubble up. If you think that’s a non important factor, please let me know how calm you stay when your latte bubbles before you even take it to your table and loses its prettiness and you can’t even take decent pictures. You won’t be calm. It bothers all of us. Or maybe just me, I don’t know.
I decided to also get a croissant, which I never do but should because croissants are great and make me feel French (my priorities in life are amazing). A cool thing about their pastries is that they get them from Premiere Moisson, a well known chain bakery in Quebec.
All in all, I loved this location and will be back for sure! UQAM students - if you haven’t been here yet.. do you even go to UQAM?!
Children are afraid of the dark. Everyone knows that. They are scared of all the monsters hiden in the shadows, of thier sharp fangs, claws, long limbs slowly crawling from under thier beds when they flick the lights off.
But sometimes…sometimes, children learn that the worst monsters can have a face of normal human. And after this discovery, nothing that could be hidden in the dark seems to be really scary.
Dean learned that after his mom died,they moved to new house, and his father started to drink. Sometimes he just walked out the doors and didn’t come home for days. Sometimes when he came back, he was so drunk that he couldn’t even stand. Dean had to take care of everything. Of his little brother, of the house, of his always-drunk father. He always did everything the best he could. But sometimes it just wasn’t enough, sometimes he did something wrong. And that was when John got angry. So, very, very angry. He yelled, he cursed, sometimes he grabbed Dean’s shoulders a little too hard, leaving ugly, purple brusies on his pale skin. He never cried in front of his father, he knew that It would only make him furious. But when he was alone in his room, he allowed himself to sob quietly into his pillow. At one of evenings like this, he has met Him. First thing that he noticed - He wasn’t a human, He looked like one, but… The shadows near him were darker, liquid black that was moving, looking like a living creature. But that really doesn’t mean that He was scary.
He was more…. awkward standing in the middle of Dean’s room with His too big coat and crooked tie. You could even say that He actualy looked way more scared than Dean did. They looked at each other in silence for few long seconds. ’ I…I could read you. A book. If it would make you feel better’ His voice was low, a little rough. But there was a lot of warmth in it, and Dean decided that he likes it. ’…Sure’ The weird not-human man relaxed a little and picked up one of Dean’s books. Dean sat up on his bed, and hugged his pillow. ‘I’m Dean’ he said eventually, because it would be really rude not to introduce himself to someone who wanted to read him a story. ’ Castiel’ the man answered, sitting on the floor ’ It’s nice to meet you, Dean'
From that night, Castiel became a constant presence in his life. They talked mostly at night, because Cas felt really bad in the sunlight. But sometimes, when John was especially mean to Dean, he would made an exception and show up in the middle of the day, throwing something from the shelfs or turning on the tv, radio, and lights all at once. He helped Dean with his homework and taught him a lot of things about the stars, the universe, and the history of the Earth. Castiel always had the answers for all Dean’s questions. And he was always protecting him and Sammy. Like that one day…one day when John hit him.
And few hour later, he feel from the stairs, and broke his hand. Dean saw it. He saw how cold Castiel’s eyes were when he was looking at John lying on the floor. That was the first time when he was really scared of Cas. And he didn’t talk to him for a week after this incident. Because John was still his dad. And Cas couldn’t just hurt someone from his family like this.
His eyes were sad when he spoke to Dean for the first time after a week. 'I’m sorry Dean. I won’t do this again’. It was all that Dean needed to hear. Because Cas was family, too.
Children are afraid of the dark. Everyone knows that. And still, the monster living in the shadows was the one who became Dean’s best friend.
They first met when Dean was not even 5. When he leaved the house to live with his uncle Bobby with Sam at the age of 11, he manages to tell himself that Cas never was real. Just an imaginary friend . When his father dies 12 years later and he moves into his old house again, he expect all those bad memories to come back to him. But he never thought that when he wake up in the middle of the night from a nightmare, he would saw those familiar, icy-blue eyes looking at him with worry. He never thought that he will see that man agian, looking the same as he looked the first time Dean saw him. And for sure he never expected to hear that low, gravelly voice again.
’… Hello, Dean'
let me introduce you to my newest Destiel AU This was eating me for days, I had to do something with this story, so… what do you think? Should I continue this?
Filling the prompt “One based off soundcheck? Or just the Chill you out-drive though the night to your sisters- jacket as a cover- wake up just to smoke bit”
Expecting to spend your lunch break alone, Van was finished sound check in less than half an hour, early enough to meet you. He’d ducked out, leaving his guitar in Larry’s hands, claiming to be popping out for a quick smoke. They all knew better.
“Darlin’,” he greeted.
You leaned against a brick wall in a side street covered in art and dirt. You shared a couple of cigarettes and mostly just watched each other.
“Think you should just quit the band and come live with me in my bed forever,” you said. He grinned and stepped closer.
“You only like me ‘cause I’m in a band,”
“Not true. I also like you 'cause you share your smokes,” you replied, reaching out for the one in his hand. He shook his head. “Besides, what do you need 'cept me?”
Have you ever had people make fun of you for drawing cats ;oooo My family constantly nags at me to draw something other than cats but I keep telling them to let me draw what I want ;-;
I’ve had some people point out that I drew cats a lot, but never had people make fun of me o: at this stage I know I should definitely be branching out and trying more things, which I am, but I still love drawing cats a lot so I still do it. You do you man, draw what you find is fun! If you’re gonna take on art as a career you should consider trying new things, but honestly I don’t think you have to worry about that yet. Just enjoy drawing ;u;
So while scrolling through my dash last
night, I noticed a mutual expressing issues with art envy and
by that I mean that they were struggling with their level of ability
versus that of others around them. I started to type out a reply to
their post when I realized partway through that there was so much I
had to say on the matter that all of it wouldn’t fit in that limited
amount of space. Even sending an ask wouldn’t even really let me say
all I wanted to say on the subject.
Thus this post is happening. As is,
I’ve been meaning to talk for a while now about the art block I spent
years fighting and how I finally managed to claw my way up out of
that hole. I don’t know how helpful this will be to anyone else as I
can really only talk about my own experiences and add a few things
that I’ve picked up from hearing other artists speak of the same, but
I figure if this does anything to aid anyone else in ANY way, it will
have been worth the time to type out.
