Painted up some bookmarks after watching PurpleKecleon’s AMAZING color tutorial. SUPER inspiring, I’d recommend it to anyone looking to get all excited about painting with fun saturated colors!

The greyscale sanctum art will be on the back of each bookmark!

Name: ——— (I’d prefer to keep that private!)

Nickname: Mara

Birthday: February 20th

Gender: Female

Sexuality: Panromantic asexual

Height: 5’5”

Time Zone: GMT -5

Current time and date: September 2nd, 5:12 PM

Average hours of sleep: 8. I actually take care of my sleep schedule now, although I decided to game for the heck of it until 2:30am yesterday. Not my finest idea.

The last thing I Googled was: How to delete my Soundtracking account. They make it a pain.

My most used phrase(s): “Whaddup whaddup.” “Don’t mess.” “Hella.” (?? I don’t even know how any of those started. I’m silly.)

First word that comes to mind: Attunement, although I wish I had thought of a new word I learned today, tintinnabula. Look how fabulous this word is. What is it, some kind of snake? Actually, it’s the sound of the bells, the bells!

Last thing said to a family member: We always end our phone calls with “I love you,” so almost certainly that.

One place that makes me happy and why: Chautauqua, NY. The streets are peaceful, the houses lovely; the ambient soundtrack is the wind in the trees, church and bicycle bells, cicadas, music, and conversations out on porches. There’s a lawn/quad with a large fountain in the center where people congregate, an amphitheater, an ice cream place on the corner, and a beautiful lake. I have many cherished memories from the times my family has rented an apartment there.

How many blankets I sleep under: None right now, just a sheet. Summahtime.

Favorite beverage(s): Jasmine and Earl Grey Tea, Birch Beer!!

The last movie I watched in the cinema: In the cinema? I don’t know. I don’t think I’ve been to the movies once this year. Maybe it was “20 Feet From Stardom.”

Three things I can’t live without: To quote the friend who tagged me: “Music, good stories, and a cup of tea! :)”

Something I plan on learning: How to be an adult without stress-crying all the time.

A piece of advice for all my followers: Let go of your prideful or hurt ego as much as you can. You’ll be at peace with yourself a lot more.

I’m tagging: Anyone else interested in taking up this little challenge. :)

Anonymous asked: You are a wonderful person. I wish I saw more of you on my dash.

Thank you Anon. ♥ I went from prolific, to lurker, and now I’m starting to reemerge from the shadows again. Right now I’m in that transitional phase where I’m not highly active in a fandom where I made a name for myself (the Phineas and Ferb fandom, although I have another completed fanmix to bring out eventually), and my current primary fandoms I either don’t have a foothold in the community yet (Gravity Falls) or not many people who follow me are a part of (Guild Wars 2). So I definitely feel on the fringes, a little lonely and a little shy.

On the upside, I’m getting inspired again—the gears are turning in my head for some fanmixes, fanfiction, and commentary (and now gifs!). I got out of bed this morning and promptly talked to someone for an hour about Gravity Falls. I was thinking I should copy my stream of conscience down for here, but as I’m new to being an active part of the fandom I don’t know how many of my observations are old news. So I shall comb the tags a little more and then weigh my contribution. But contributions - for that fandom and others - there shall be. :) I look forward to you seeing it.

Reblog if it is 104% okay to come to your ask and just say ‘Hi can we be friends’ and then start asking you random questions.

Cipher v Cypher (oldu prqvwhu vqdssb guhvvhu dqg wdfnb nqrfnrii)

While I can’t really imagine Bill Cipher as anything but the floating yellow triangle he is, the human!Ciphers I was seeing in the tag piqued my interest—and I just can’t resist some MMO cosplaying/homage.

This was fun to put together: the “blind eyes” mask, the blue flame, summoning circles, not to mention getting to lug around a very familiar looking battered old journal called - no joke - Book of Secrets.

This originally wasn’t Rule 63 but then I saw potentialforart’s fabulous Bill Cipher in (cosmic) dresses (in the second one especially you can see where I was inspired) and it was game over.

Character fullview.

french teacher: ça va?
me: ça va HELLA, et toi?
