Bought a sketchbook to use on holiday, so here’s a pencil and watercolour doodle of Mikey because fave turtle is fave turtle.Also, hi to all the sudden new followers!  I guess it was from the Gravity Falls picture from the start of this week. :) I hope to have more Gravity Falls stuff up later - but anything I upload for the next few weeks is going to be via a phone photo as I am on holiday in Hong Kong right now and will be for a while.<3

Ahhhhh! This is so stinkin’ cute! ~<3

So, I really like making costumes for my nephews because who doesn&#8217;t like babies/toddlers in costumes? lol
Since the oldest will likely be old enough to decide for himself next Halloween, this is my last chance to push my childhood nostalgia onto him. XD So my sis and I chose to make the 3 year old Teddy Ruxpin and the 1 year old Grubby (and I&#8217;m trying to convince Grandpa to be Newton Gimmick, but I&#8217;m doubting that will happen). We also want to do up a wagon to look like the Airship if we have time. :)
At least I know they like the characters as they&#8217;ve been watching the DVDs I have of the old cartoon, haha. Wish we still had the books, tapes, and Teddy himself, though&#8230; :(

Test Your Vocabulary: how many words do you know?


Most Native English adult speakers who have taken the test fall in the range 20,000–35,000 words. And for foreign learners of English, we’ve found that the most common vocabulary size is from 2,500–9,000 words.
I scored 21,500 FUCK YES


24,500 :D
Growing up reading the King James version of the Bible helped - some of those words I would not have known otherwise. XD

TMNT (Mini) Big Bang!

theherocomplex:

I got such a great response to my general idea about a TMNT fandom Big Bang (thank you to everyone who wrote me or reblogged the post!), so I’ve decided to go ahead and get started on setting it up! 

(my original post is here, for those who are curious!)

Since this is both the first time I know of that TMNT has done a Big Bang, and my first time running it, we’re going to do a Mini Big Bang! 

I’ll post a full details post soon, when I have the community set up on Livejournal, but here are the initial facts: 

  1. The Mini Big Bang is open to all pairings and all universes (tcest included). You can go full AU if you like, stick completely to canon, or fall somewhere in between. It’s up to you! 
  2. However, there will be no explicit smut, no underage, and no non-con/dubcon allowed. I realize a lot of people like writing these things, but a lot of sites (Tumblr, Livejournal, etc) will shut you down for hosting them. There are other places that will host them, so post them there! This Big Bang is also all-ages, and I want to make sure everyone is welcome. 
  3. The minimum word count, since this is a Mini Big Bang, is 4,000 words. This may seem daunting, but you’ll have two months to complete it. Feel free to write more, if you like! There’s no maximum word count. 
  4. The stories submitted to the Mini Big Bang should be new: not posted anywhere else, not rewrites of old stories — though it’s totally fine to take an unfinished story that you’ve been working on, and finish it for the Mini Big Bang! The focus here is on new stories, and new art. In order to keep the reveal factor high, please don’t post WIPs either. 
  5. Artists will sign up to illustrate stories based on anonymously-posted summaries and snippets that the writers post after they’ve been writing for a month. Then, I’ll give each paired writer and artist the other’s contact information, and they can collaborate. 
  6. If you sign up, either as an artist or a writer, and need to drop out for any reason, please just let me know! There’s no penalty — real life happens to everyone! 

I’m probably forgetting something — it will come to me! 

The tentative schedule for the Mini Big Bang is as follows: 

September 15th-September 30th: Writer sign-ups. 

October 1st-October 31st: Writers writing! 

November 1st: Writers anonymously post summaries and snippets from their fics. 

November 1st-November 15th: Artists sign up for the fics they want to illustrate. 

November 15th-20th: Writers and artists get each other’s contact information and collaborate. 

December 1st: Check-in with moderator to make sure fics and illustrations will be ready to be posted on December 15th. 

December 15th: The masterposts go up on Tumblr, Livejournal, Ao3, and ff.net (and anywhere else you want to post them!). One post per day — which means we get a ton of new fics and art for the holidays! 

How does that sound to everyone? This is all still tentative, so if you have questions, please let me know how I can clarify! I’ll post the links to the Livejournal community (it’s easier to track comments there, and to post anonymously) and the Mini Big Bang Tumblr by Friday, September 5th. 

All posts here on Tumblr pertaining to the Mini Big Bang will be tagged “tmnt mini bang 2014”.

Thank you all for your interest! I think this is going to be great! 

Sweet! Ugh, now I actually have to pick writer or artist… More freedom as a writer, but I’m bad with keeping writing deadlines…

Why do the two fics I have plans for have to be super long?? D: I’ll have to see if I can come up with something more manageable…

I love stuff like this though! <3

I wouldn’t tell my nine-year-old self anything! I’ve seen Back to the Future enough to know that you don’t mess with time. Nice try, bro.
