“This truly is a good spot. It’s quieter, here, away from the crush of people. And Jaskier had just known, forgoing the opportunity for dancing and celebrating with dozens of strangers to sit up here, with him, away from the overwhelming noise. He’d lead Geralt away without needing to be told he was struggling - not that Geralt ever would tell him - and brought him here with soft certainty that he’d find it far more comfortable than any of the taverns below.”
Fan animatic for @a-kind-of-merry-war’s lovely Froggy Postcard fic (part 2, make sure to check part 1 as well!)
i think that parker and quinn should be Weird Reluctant Friends but i also think that if they were let within 10 ft of each other for more than 15 minutes without outside supervision something, somewhere, would explode. a bank vault perhaps
I don’t talk a lot about how much I miss CR, because I mean, it’ll come back when it comes back, right? We know they’re doing a third campaign and most of the time I’m really good at being patient. But today. Man. Today, I miss being able to lose myself in 4 hours of new content once a week.
AN AUTHOR'S JOURNEY: @klarolineagainnaturally [ao3]
A little tribute for blessing this fandom with all of your beautiful creations. Here is a list of some of my favorites fics you have written! Thank you, Lottie!
Summary: Canon Divergent- Caroline and Klaus start an affair after finding out Tyler’s cheating, and this leads to a series of event that favor this beautiful OTP.
Before We Meet Again For the First Time
Summary: Klaroline Drabble Request Fulfilment for yelenablackwidownatasha on Tumblr: Please do Caroline and Klaus meet when Caroline was younger, but he changed her memory or something. In the present, Klaus is giving them back! If you could.
The Most Damning Reason
Summary: Prompt:"We got paired up in this project together and oh fuck i’ve been harboring a crush on you for like two years what do i do now (mutual pining included)"
Summary: 1969. The Summer of Love. Klaus Mikaelson has flown across the pond to attend the prestigious Harvard Law School. "Coincidentally", his brother Elijah could not find him an apartment in time, leaving him to stay with a group of Americans. Among those Americans is the perky, yet demanding, Caroline Forbes. A hippie dippie love story with life-changing events.
Bored of Games
Summary: kc + enemies + everyone thinks we hate each other but we’re secretly hooking up/dating behind their backs.
The Welsh Dragon
Summary: Leading a double life wasn’t the dream Caroline pictured, nor was hunting down a creature that could be undoing...in more ways than one.
Two Slow Dancers
Summary: Inspired by Mitski's Two Slow Dancers. Caroline Forbes would be the first to admit she hadn't exactly kept in touch and that her reasoning was irrational at best, but she could handle a ten year reunion! Absolutely! She was definitely not worried about running into the love of her life that had left her heartbroken, no! Caroline Forbes was stronger than that.
How do you do your comic pages? Do you use a special drawing software that give you the option of editing the dimensions of the panels? Or is it all free handed? I'm asking because I'm trying to draw a fan comic myself, and I use FireAlpaca, which gives me the option of exiting the borders and panels of comic pages, but I dont like some of its features. How do you make your pages?
my "special drawing software" is a super old version of photoshop elements XD it's from 2009, and somehow i still haven't found another program that i like better for text editing or setting up panels--mostly because it's super straightforward. there's plenty of other things it's not good at--for example, i don't think it can do outlined shapes, and it's really not the best for digital painting. So, I use other programs for that.
Anyway, when it comes to making comic pages the way i do, you can probably use the same basic technique in other programs because it's ultimately very simple. All i do to make my panels is use the shape tool to make boxes in the sizes and shapes i want; in photoshop, these shapes can automatically 'snap' into alignment with one another, which makes keeping them to a standardized size easy. so that might be something your program doesn't have--you could probably just use the rectangular selection tool and delete edges that don't line up.
once i make all the panels i need, i merge them all onto one layer, and then do all my drawing and shading in clipped layers above the comic panels. Clipped layers are super useful and let me draw without worrying about going over the edges of the panels below, and i usually only ever need a few--one for lineart, one for "color", and one for shading the backgrounds. text, speech bubbles, and other effects go over those.
so, there's no real trick to it; i know some programs let you draw comic panels and then 'cut' them to create new borders (called gutters, i think), but i haven't figured those out so i just use this cheap method.
I think only children in this fandom have some confusion about siblings being mean to each other.
It’s not that all meanness between siblings is harmless ribbing. Siblings can be really, really mean to each other.
It’s just that meanness from your sibling hurts a lot less than if someone else said the same thing in the same way. And usually it takes, like, an hour tops before you’re back to normal. You will say shit to your sibling that you would never say to anyone else, and vice versa, get furious with them, and have that anger burn out really quickly because you know neither of you really means it.
Siblings don’t usually “make up” unless something truly heinous happens. We don’t really say “thank you,” either. Those things are formalities we have the privilege to skip with each other.
So, some things, like saying, “I still think you’re an idiot,” after they’ve saved your life, that’s just how siblings say, “Thank you” or, “My arm hurts but I’m too manly to let on.” If they’re accurate or specific, like calling your ape-bodied sibling a monkey, they’re rude. If they’re hostile, like, “No one needs your shit, Klaus, that’s why you’re always alone,” then that’s mean, but not something that will get taken to heart once the explosion of anger dies down.
Physical abuse crosses a line. If they’re fighting back on equal terms at your father’s funeral, they’re fair game, but if you’re locking them in an anechoic chamber indefinitely after smothering them into unconsciousness, that’s unacceptable.
In conclusion, yes, the Hargreeves siblings can be really mean to each other—but none of them take it personally.
deku likes to inhale ur scent even when ur a bit musty. if u ever come home from the gym/any physical activity all sweaty he’s all up on u. i’d like to believe he has a scent kink. ur dirty panties r not safe
p-please.. the way he’d be on you the second you shut the front door, pushing you up against the wall while he falls to his knees so he can.. so he can shove his nose into your stink. @_@
Let's face it, one of the main reasons everyone loves mcc is not only for mcc itself (which is incredibly gorgeous), but for the post-mcc chatting.
It's just- there's this strange joy you feel when you see a bunch of players who wouldn't normally interact that much hop in a call with others and talk about whatever comes on their mind. It's also a great insight into what your favourite cc is actually like, how they talk with others when they're not rp-ing, or whatever. There could be ten people in the call and only one person would be live, just hopping around the server, and yet the viewer count barely goes down because let's face it, this is also what we're here for.
A few main instances I remember are MCC 7, where Techno joined Dream's vc and they talked like 45 minutes straight about what they did and felt (so much rivalstwt content it was amazing), MCC10 where it was Tommy, Wil, Techno, Tubbo, Philza, Niki, Pokimane- who would've thought? There was also MCC12, on Phil's stream, where a bunch of them were on a crown and Wilbur really wanted to 'go inside it', and a CaptainPuffy stream (idr when) where Dream and a bunch were in the call (Noxite was there too? I think?) And they were talking about MCC in general. I also can't forget the memorable MCC...13? Where Wilbur punched his CPU to end the stream with others in the call.
(Of course, I've only mostly watched Techno's POVs of this, so if anyone has anything more I'd love it if you would add it)
And I think that that adds a charm to MCC that makes it really special. As the high of the tournament and Dodgebolt wears off, they just chill and relax and talk about whatever they want. People congratulate each other, laugh about funny things that happened, and have a great time in general. There's no expectations, no strategy-hell half the time the creators forget they're even streaming- basically, it's just a time to vibe.
So basically tl;dr: post-mcc talks are lovely because we get to chill and laugh, as do the creators, fun times all around baby.
idk call me crazy but maybe cottagecore isn’t an evil White (TM) propaganda machine in its essence, and maybe some of us just like the idea of a house in a village, or by the woods, away from this nightmarish existance, with appreciation towards our native folklore, perhaps particularly those of us who’s countries have been fucking decimated by economic, political and/or social devastation in the past century :)
Edit since this is getting popular: this has nothing to do with the North American “untouched land“ ideal. I’m literally talking about village life in places where the locals have been for millenia, accross the world, not America, and not solely Europe. This is a reaction specifically to the claim that such ways of life are inherently colonialist, capitalist or white supremacist - there’s been comparisons with the WW2 “farm for aryan glory“ propaganda and shit like that.
Edit 2: about the tags
#y'all love throwing around the word 'indigenous' to prove your point but all you do is showcase your ignorance#obviously there's issues within this trend that need to be addressed but you are all reducing it to your narrow#black and white ideas on how society works and just.... Godddd you're really something special
These tags are specifically in reference to Americans refering to one group as “indigenous” to Europe, on a purely racial basis. The same basis that nazis used to determine that that same group deserved to be exterminated - a handful of common physical features. They are not the only group that deserves visibility and respect, and reparrations.
I don’t expect Americans to know, let alone care, about the nuance of ethnic tension and discrimination outside the USA. The point was applying the absolutely same lens, with no thought to the actual history or social dynamics to all of them.At that point it wasn’t even about cottagecore (it’s a dumb trend, whatever) so much as US-centricism.
still baffled that Axel remembered Ventus all those years later when he saw Roxas and chose to say nothing about it. and then when everyone was like “oh we gotta find Ventus,” Axel didn’t mention that Roxas looked IDENTICAL to Ventus because that probably could’ve been a good fucking thing to know going into KH3
