how do i get good at building like you im so jealous
I have been building since I started playing the sims in 2009, but i would say I have been building homes a lot longer because that was the main thing i did with lego XD
When practising, it is all about trying to avoid making huge rooms and boxes. That is the most common thing i see. I generally learn from floor plans (old Sears ones are some of the best because they translate well) and really just love google search which helps me develop a house’s style and also giude me in getting proportions that are pleasing to the eye. I guess i just have a natural talent for it which made me pick it up more easily. Some simmers on here have done how-to’s on building and landscaping, so if you aren’t following @jenba and @fakehousesrealawesome you should definitely check them out for tips and tricks as well as inspiration.
can you link some multi-chapter fics that are really good? I've already read a couple of your recommendations and they were phenomenal (would love more!!) thanks!!
OK I really just picked a lot that I love and I’m gonna put a read more after this. I should have written if they were completed or not but it’s like half and half and usually anything else written by these authors is amazing too
Ravenclaws with ptsd? (I'm a Hufflepuff mainly but there's no blog like yours for us and Ravenclaw really matches my personality too)
I actually have lots of requests for this so I promise I’ll try and get round to it soon! I just thought I should let you know there actually is a hufflepuff blog! Feel free to head over to hufflepuff-headcanons and I can give you a more hufflepuff centric answer as well :)
I just saw the Lego Batman Movie and holy fuck that Batman/Joker shit is so fucking great. It’s a really good movie with a positive message and an impressive voice cast. I loved Harley Quinn and the Joker and Robin and there were a lot of really clever jokes as well, stuff for adults that was pretty cute. And even though the romance was implied, they ended the movie with the main het relationship as platonic and I’m thankful they didn’t go overboard with it. And there was a running joke about Batman and Bruce Wayne being roommates and possibly being Robin’s two dads and I thought that was cute. And it’s about not pushing people away and the credit song is about best friends, y'all really should check it out, especially if you like hero/villain dynamics.
As a heads up to you and your followers, the website AnimeFeminist is doing something of a roundup of Utena analysis in celebration of the series' 20th anniversary! Everyone should comment on the site's post with their favorite meta (or relevant commentary in any medium.) Thanks for all the work you do to keep Utena fandom thriving <3
Hey everyone, check this out! This is a really cool idea and you can bet I’ll be checking out all the analysis/meta that gets posted XD
Hello! I'm a baby witch I'm having a hard time helping a friend out. We're in a coven together and I represent earth while he's air. He uncontrollably astral projects and looks for me to ground him before he goes out. The 4-5 times it has happened, I've been unable to ground him because I'm /very/ new to this. And this question (I would assume) is a little out there but I was wondering, do you have any tips for me on helping ground my friend?
I would say practice grounding my yourself first, until you’re really comfortable doing it! You can check my grounding tags for ideas or spells to help you!
Then, try practicing with him, without him doing any astral work, to get comfortable doing it together and all.
And finally, it should be easier to do it as you want to ;)
There’s an new episode up for The Strange Case of Starship Iris podcast! I heard about it from someone hear on Tumblr, and figured Id check it out because Wolf 359 and Eos 10 have made me love stories set in space (I wasn’t a huge fan of that kind of sci fi until recently). The first episode was really good, and ended on a cliffhanger, so it’ll be nice to find out where they’re going to take the story. If you’re into awesome lady scientists, vaguely post-apocalyptic earths, and mysteries in space, you should check this one out.
So I decided to try out the waterbrush for the first time :3 And who better to draw than my dear friend, Li <3 @side-chara-cter | @ofdreamsandwonder(There’s more urls here that I can’t recall right now :x)
You guys should really check her out. She’s awesome, talented, creative, very kind and gorgeous ;3
I drew her in my…uh…style though. And also she’s too unique for normal eyes so I gave her special ones!
So, I really liked the concept of this and how beautifully written it is c: The storyline is rather quite unique (although I haven’t read a whole lot of soulmate!AUs, it does still come off as unique!)
So, I’m still not over how well this goes, with Jungkook as the Joker, and Jimin as Harley Quinn?? I’ve kinda been bugging Shanel over how much I liked it, but I needed her to know that I really liked it! cx
Reader x Jimin x Hoseok - Office!AU x Hosts!AU (Completed - 4 parts with a sequel which I also recommend)
Ah, this one had me binge reading for ages cx It also had me conflicted between Jimin and Hoseok, I couldn’t choose who I wanted (Y/N) to be with cx But it was honestly written really well, I enjoyed it ^.^ (warning: This one does have slight smut in it cx)
So, there’s actually one only part of this out so far, but that first part had me intrigued and genuinely wanting to read more ^_^ I really like the concept, and it’s written really well, even the action ^_^
Jimin x Reader (I am literal trash for this boy as you can see cx) - Mafia!AU (I’m not sure of the status of this one)
Looks like I found myself a new fanfic to binge read cx I really like how it’s written, I’ve only started reading this, but I’m already really liking it so I thought I should add it to this Fic Rec list ^_^
I will definitely be adding to this in the near future, but for now, please do check these out and support the writers! I know as a writer myself how gratifying it feels when someone leaves feedback on a story, so please do go read these, I assure you they’re good! ^_^
heyy since it’s no shame november does this mean i can post my incredibly self indulgent au…….. ok good
ok so in all honesty wild times always reminded me of tiana’s palace and at first it was just for fun but then i got reeeally invested heheeee,,,, (also yes judy is naveen in case you were wondering bppt) hope you enjoy because i might draw more of this
I would like to know how to respond when I see xenophobia in public and if the person being harassed would want me to step in and say something. I don't want to be racially insensitive and some tips when I see harassment would be helpful. Thank you.
Months ago, I came across a bystander’s guide to Islamophobic harassment created by an illustrator and filmmaker who
goes by Maeril. You can check out her Tumblr page here. Her guide explains how to react when you see Islamophobic
harassment or really any type of xenophobic harassment in public.
The guide illustrates when you see xenophobic harassment,
then one should ignore the attacker and engage the person being harassed. I
thought this technique was really interesting and can be applied to any sort of
xenophobic incident we come across.
In psychology, we’re taught about the bystander effect which
is a phenomenon where people do not help a victim when other people are
present. We always expect someone else to step in. Well, when everyone has that
mentality, then who will help the victim? No one. We have a responsibility to
stand up for others when we see an injustice committed. I’ve seen a couple
viral videos of someone on a plane or train getting verbally harassed and a
common theme I’ve noticed is that people will record the incident or tweet
about it but rarely will anyone actually intervene and help the victim of the
I think that the person being
harassed would want someone to step in and ask if they’re okay. It’s always
safer to only interact with the victim and see if they need help being escorted
to a safe space away from the person harassing them. If you feel comfortable
escorting them, then do that and follow up to see if the person is fine before
leaving. In some cases, based on your judgement, you may need to call the authorities.
I guess I should’ve learned a long time ago how to recognize unhealthy relationships before they really start to mess you up.
It’s all the things you’ve heard from your parents when you were young: people who mistreat you don’t deserve your love, you have no obligation to anyone who tries to buy your affection, your worth is so much more than anyone who tries to place a value on your body. Phrases engrained in your mind but somehow they go mute when you find yourself giving that one person just one more chance because you really believe in them, because they can change, you can help them do it.
When they buy you flowers, or take you out somewhere nice instead of saying sorry for that other night, instead of starting to listen to you when you talk, instead of actually answering your texts when you try and ask them about their day. That’s when you should realize that a relationship is not a membership someone needs to subscribe and write checks out to. It’s never IOU’s attached to broken hearts and tear stained pillows.
It’s hearing each other’s fears and wants and wishes and deciding that maybe you don’t understand them completely but you will always be behind each other for support when it’s needed. It’s unwavering trust and constant I love you’s being traded back and forth and every time, it’s truly meant.
