( ´ ▽ ` ) Good afternoon, everyone! ( ´ ▽ ` )
The date is May 21, 2013 on a Tuesday
Always remember to distance yourself from those who hurt you! Don’t stay and think they will change, more often than not they will not. Get away from a bad person or situation as quickly as you can, they’ll only cause you unneeded stress and pain!
( ´ ▽ ` ) Have a wonderful afternoon! ( ´ ▽ ` )

Why? Because after Season 5 of Teen Titans the people in charge of Cartoon Network were asking for support if Season 6 were to happen. Shortly afterwards it was announced that the show was officially cancelled. There had been rumors in 2011 of a season 6, but those turned out to be false. Instead, the Titans were revived as New Teen Titans, a series of short comedic episodes. These episodes retained the animation styles and original voice cast, yet there was a much higher emphasis on humor and the characters were more chibi-styled. Because of the popularity of the series, it was announced that Teen Titans would be revived as Teen Titans Go!, a new television series with full-length episodes featuring the original voice cast. Of course, there are many differences between the two, but comparing these two would be like comparing Adam West’s Batman to Christian Bale’s version.
Also please don’t forget that it isn’t easy to revive a show. The traditional animation costs more to use than TTG’s flash animation, and apparently the studio wasn’t making as much money with Teen Titans, and apparently the same thing was partially why Young Justice was cancelled. Not only that, but you can’t just have the same voice actors back and hope the new series ends up a carbon-copy of the earlier show. You need to hire writers and directors and animators and storyboard artists and more. Cartoon Network and Warner Bros. did their best to make a new show that kids will enjoy while making fans of the original show satisfied with what they could work with.
Not to mention all the nods to the original fans that they make, or fans of older stuff in general.
Gymnosomata, commonly known as Sea Angels. An apt name- the sea angels are the ethereal, translucent, fluttering angels of the sea.
In hard scientific terms, they’re small swimming sea slugs, but we’ll pass over that for now and just admire how delicately beautiful these wonderful creatures are.
My friends, I have decided it is time to further fuel my addiction to videogames and Dr. Pepper, and I am going to accomplish this by drawing things for you. If you can spare a bit of cash in exchange for a silly drawing, please send it my way on Paypal, and send me an email at emilydavis079@gmail dot com telling me exactly what you want me to fervently scrawl on a post-it note somewhere.
also I guess if you don’t care about backgrounds at all at least tell me if you’d rather have it transparent or plain white.
EDIT: bumped the prices up a few dollars because underselling oh no
friendly reminder that I didn’t think of setting slots for this, and that I didn’t stop taking commissions yet
I feel like my characters are pretty developed by themselves. As stand-alone creations, they’re well-rounded and interesting and so on. But in my story, they… have no point. You could throw PacMan or Mel Gibson in their places and still have everything turn out the same. How do I get them to INTERACT with my plot, so to speak? How do I get them to actually have an effect on their world and their world to affect them? [And if this is the wrong blog, could you direct me to one that CAN helpme?]Anonymous
- Have them make decisions and choices.
- Make their decisions matter.
In other words, base your plot more heavily off of what your characters would do. If they fuck things up and your story lands in a tricky place that you’re not quite sure how to get out of, all the better. So, the next time you’re writing, ask yourself constantly, ‘what would this person do in this situation?’ It should matter which character does what. Everyone should have a motive, and they should act in accordance with their motivations, desires, and fears.
Does that help?
i dont just like certain ‘styles’ of music i just like it if it sounds good wtf
Just my 2 cents. Whatever reason you have, you don’t owe people anything. Just do your magic and be happy.
