protip if a nerd dude tries to give you a pop quiz about the fandom on your shirt/bag/cosplay by asking you to answer a banal and obscure trivia question to prove you’re a Real Gamer, turn the question back on him. ask him about the thematic implications that bit of trivia has on the actual story. ask him about the character development and motivations of the minor characters he’s making you list. ask him if he thinks the major in-universe event he’s testing you on was successful in carrying forward the underlying tone and intent of the work itself. ask him about fucking literary devices. you know that one super tough and intimidating lit teacher everyone encounters at least once in their lifetime? become that teacher. make him sweat.

You don’t have to have 100+ notes on everything you write to have quality writing. Keep writing.
You don’t need to have reviews praising the ground you walk on—you don’t even need readers at all. Keep writing.
You don’t need to come up with the most unheard-of plot lines and most accepted head canons to have quality writing. Keep writing.
And most importantly, you don’t have to have quality writing right now and that’s okay. Keep writing.
We all start somewhere. It takes a lot of courage to post something for complete strangers to read, but keep writing. Keep posting. Keep asking for feedback. Look for people to help you grow. And many years later, you might roll your eyes and feel secondhand embarrassment over your past self’s word choices and character development. But I really hope that when that happens, you then go and pick up a pen or open up a blank document and you keep writing, knowing how far you’ve come and how far you can go.
the traumatized are unpredictable because we know we can survive. you can survive this happening to you.
Ain’t no party like a Microsoft paint party
i like how the gray/black/white squares are like
“can u not”
don’t save as jpeg
as a former yearbook editor and designer, let me explain this further
if youre only planning on posting your art online, them please save it as .png ;this is also better for transparencies as well
please, if youre planning of printing your art, NEVER use png. it makes the quality of the image pretty shitty. use jpeg or pdf instead. and always set your work at 300dpi to get a better printing quality - this means, the images are crisper and sharper and theres no slight blurriness. i had a talk with my friend who is currently taking design, and pdf is much better to use when youre working with a bigger publishing company because it still has the layers intact, but if youre only planning on printing your stuff at staples or at some small publishing store, the jpeg is the way to go.
this has been a public service announcement
”I felt so betrayed by you. Betrayal was the only thing that felt real to me. I trusted you and i needed to trust you.”
May I have your autograph? Perhaps even, a leg??
GUYS LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE DROPPED TO 2.64 MILLION. THIS IS NOT GOOD. I DON’T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO. THE CHANCES OF SEASON 3 ARE GETTING DIMMER, AT LEAST ON NBC. DO WHAT YOU CAN. GET MORE VIEWERS. IF YOU MISS AN EPISODE GO TO NBC.COM OR HULU. PLEASE.
Guys, this is SO BAD.The premier episode started with 3.27 million viewers. This means that Hannibal’s ratings has dropped by .81 MILLION VIEWERS. To put this in perspective, Blue Bloods, a very popular show that has the same air slot as Hannibal, averages 11.87 million viewers per episode!
The first season of Hannibal averaged around 4.36 million viewers and it was almost cancelled because of it. Imagine what’s going to happen if 2.64 million becomes the norm; Hannibal will be cancelled.
Hannibal has an amazing cast and we all love seeing their tweets and involvement with tumblr. This is because they’re funny, kind, and care about the fans. However, they are also doing this because they are desperate to get more viewers. They know that the internet is a powerful tool, and they’re reaching out to as many people as they can.
Even if you don’t watch Hannibal, YOU CAN HELP. As stated in the original post, you can go onto Hulu and watch it. But you can also go to to NBC’s website, where you can find »»>FULL EPISODES«« without any kind of subscription.
The best part is that you don’t even have to watch the episodes! If Hannibal isn’t your cup of tea, all you have to do is mute it, hit play, minimize the window, and go about you business.
For the love of all that is holy, PLEASE SAVE OUR SHOW. You’ve seen how passionate we are about this masterpiece on tumblr. We’re invested in these characters, their stories, and everyone involved.
Please. This is huge for the fans who have read the books and for those who haven’t. Just go to the website.
I can’t deal without this.

"… And, at any rate, you can already see what he looks like in-game. I believe his in-game model was posted on the BioWare blog in the December update. That still doesn’t tell you what he’s about, or gives you any better impression of what kind of LI he would make (as this is evidently the only purpose of characters)…
…But not every character is a LI. And, even for those that are, the art team is going to design their appearance to be interesting and tied to the actual character themselves…they’ll go for presence before they go for attractiveness... but if the idea is that all characters exist to first be pretty no matter their role in the game…then that’s simply not the case. Even for a character that’s a LI, if they’re someone you don’t personally find attractive…oh well? Guess you’ll have to find someone else or go without.”
