I need help

askthescarfedsilhouette:

Some of you know that I’ve been going through some rough times because of my parents’ divorce last year and right now things are taking a turn for the worse. I really hate ranting this kind of things, but right now my mom and I are going through stress because my dad hasn’t given us “my” pension for the month (I say “my” because in the end what little he gives us goes straight to bills and food) and we are practically out of money for food and gas for college right now.. My mom has been both sick and depressed by how he has been treating us and I am growing stressed and depressed myself at having to see my mom the way she is now. My dad has been purposely neglecting us because even though he complains he does not have money, he clearly spends a lot on drinks and his friends. I had to go today to my grandpa to ask him for money, and even though he did give us some, he clearly does not care about our problems, saying that we have to resolve this ourselves and even goes as far as to blame part of this on my mom, which surprise makes thing even worse for her. 

There is so much more going on but I can’t even bring myself to write all of it, so in the end all I want to ask is for your guys help.. I have a commission sheet [x] and I was hoping to do some commissions to be able to earn some money to help get by for the time being and I also put up a donation button on the blog in hopes for some extra help if possible. There is no fixed amount since anything would be greatly appreciated.

I’m sorry for the long post, I don’t like having to bother people like this, but I’m reaching my limit to the point that I am growing tired of putting up a smile everyday so to not upset nor worry my mom nor anyone else..

100+ Followers/1 Year Combo

i-am-best:

I’m combining gift-givings because! And since I can’t gift junk to over a hundred people, I’ll pick using a random number generator from people who have liked and/or reblogged. Pls be a follower if you do (don’t care when you follow, before or after this post) since this is partially for my gazillion awesome followers.

Things on offer: digital art, short stories, ribbon/bookmark/dangly thing! Maybe other stuff, but those are the for-sure offerings.

There’ll be six recipients! 1 and 2 can chose one thing from any of the things offered. 4 through 6 can chose from the digital stuff (art or short stories).

I would post examples, but I’m on the wrong computer, and if I don’t post this now, I never will. I might amend with a proper example list later. ATM, I’ll just link to junk that I’ve linked to before:

  • This is one of the more polished dangly things, though I’ll have to upload more designs I’ve done since. I tend to stick to smaller, simplistic shapes for the embroidery.
  • For the digital pics (which is just the same blog linked above)— while I’m willing to try most anything, what I can actually do is rather more limited, so if you win run it by me and I’ll see if it’s doable.
  • Stories are likewise up in the air. You’ll probably not be getting something told in Best’s style, unless you want. Default’s just whatever the stuff linked’s style would be considered.

And… End date is October 24, 2014, so three weeks from now. Think that’s it!

Xun flinches back a step or two with Best’s impact, only reassured that the white cloak was okay when he let out an overjoyed chirp. And yet again Xun was standing there, enduring Best’s loud personality and his even louder voice. “Err, one question at a time. I cross the broken bridges and this chasm often, and I was just hoping to see if I could get a cross a little faster. Well not just a little more, but as fast as possible. But even then, I’m not sure if I want to try… that.” 

Yet still they found themselves walking step by step toward the edge again, looking down, across, and perhaps down again. “B-But why not? What’s the worst that can happen?” Xun did their best to shut out the voice in the back of their head that shouted, {a fatal head injury against the cliff-face!}

So Xun simply stepped off the edge… fell… and didn’t so much soar as much as they twirled, pulling off the maneuver that was fresh in their mind. Everything is clear, simple, peaceful. Besides their panicked shouting, of course.

Best nods thoughtfully as though the idea of not pointlessly endangering oneself had ever occurred to him before. Avoiding danger because it was dangerous… hm… an interesting concept. He always thought he was a very safe person, who happened to get into dangerous situations. He will have to think more on this, later! For now, though, he realizes that Xun is walking toward the edge of the cliff.

:>It good to go fast, yes!<: he says encouragingly, trailing along behind. Best is in the middle of :>Worst can happen is explode!<: when the other wayfarer disappears over the edge. Best chirps in alarm, before he realizes that Xun has just taken flight. Well, fall. Fall flight!

He cheers Xun on, though it’s drown out by the wind and Xun’s screaming. It’s close enough to how Best did it that he’s quite pleased at how well Xun picked up on the maneuver.

Just to be sure, though, he’ll wait until Xun has made it across (in one piece or not) before attempting to join them.

Vanem was happy to see that he got through to Best on some level. He was always big on people living up to their strengths rather than frustrate themselves with things they were not suited for. Despite his difficulties with Best, he thought this philosophy could be applied here as well.

He let Best work at his own pace and remained right where he was, content to enjoy the evening and look up at the stars while Best worked. Perhaps this had been for the best. It had been a long while since Vanem had found the time to simply sit and look up at the starry skies and wonder if there were worlds like this one around any of them.

When Best caught his attention, he turned and leaned towards Best’s opening scrawl. While he had hoped for a little more than that in what he was sure had been a lengthy pause, he supposed that not everyone could write fast.

"Well, it is good to start from the beginning," Vanem said with a soft smile. "That is indeed the starting point of any Journey. Do you recall what some of your first thoughts were back then?"

:>Hm!<: Best says thoughtfully, tapping his chin. He has had lots of thoughts, remembering the first one’d be tricky. He started in the desert, so it was safe to assume he thought about that first. :>First thought! There sand! There sun! Then I run off and do battle with wind! Oh! I gotta that write down!<: He curls his cloak over the paper he’s writing on, muttering to himself little wordless chirps and glyphs.

After a long while, with time steadily marching toward dawn, he presents his addition. It’s even more skewed and harder to read, and Best seems to be running out of any ink that’ll stick to the paper.

:>I use both ends! Go faster so you no have to wait! I tell tale of tragic hubris of youth! Let other learn from mistake!<:

Best flops back with a :>W͞͝͏h͟͏̶̵̨e̷͡w̷!̢̀͠<: to let Vanem study the near illegible writing. It’s so late, and Best can’t recall when last he’d stayed up past the initial idea of feeling tired. Usually he’d just drop down where he was as soon as his eyes felt heavy. But work first, then he can sleep forever if he wants! Such is the life of a scholar, he supposes.

1 4 6 12 18 28 37 39 40 42 50

1. What’s the first thing your OC thinks about when they wake up in the morning?

((Hm… “I awake!” probably. Because Best has successfully navigated another night’s slumber and come out alive. I don’t think he quite understands what sleep is.))

4. Name one thing that is guaranteed to make your OC laugh.

((Himself. Best finds all of his jokes and ploys endlessly amusing. If you listen closely, in the dead of night or dark of caves and especially when you think you’re alone, you can hear him kekekeing under his breath for seemingly no reason at all.))

6. How does your OC kill time?

((answered here))

12. Does your OC take time to self-reflect at all?

((Yes, though it’s usually at the most inappropriate times, and any epiphanies he might have are either poorly expressed or forgotten.))

18. Which of your OC’s 5 senses are strongest?

((His sense of dramatics. But srsly, probably his sense of sight. Not because he has eagle vision or anything, but because everything else is so bad, the bar’s set low. He really likes his newfound sense of taste, though.))

28. Is your OC a trouble-maker, or a peace-keeper?

((Best tries to be the latter, but far more often ends up as the former. He’s instinctively a trouble-maker.))

37. When your OC is feeling down, what/who keeps them going?

((Friend! Or himself more often, but I already used that. I suspect someone’s an egotist. He’s very intent on self-improvement so he’ll be a good companion and the best Best he can be.))

39. Does your OC look down at the ground while they’re walking, or do they look forward?

((Best looks forward. He still crashes full-tilt into things, though, because seeing an obstacle and actually avoiding it are two very different skill sets.))

40. Does your OC like hugs?

((answered here))

42. Would your OC ever prank anyone? Who?

((Anyone and everyone. Best is a menace. Would he do so successfully, however….))

50. Share a head-canon you have for one of your OC’s.

((To continue from my earlier head-canon about Best, who’s pretty basic aside from that particular weirdness (tho given time I could probably come up with something I’ve not yet mentioned), and to more expand on how I view the RP Journey-verse, it’s all post-game stuff. Like, Best did his half-assed journey through the game proper, then returned to the beginning. Then he did a lot of other stuff once he’d lvled up, then suddenly he made a Tumblr everyone’s everywhere! How did he miss all these people? 

So basically, given that Journey is one of those beautiful void type settings, the RP ‘verse is possibly long after the game, when people of all different evolutionary paths began repopulating the world, which itself began to recover from the damages wrought. Which means Best is super, super, super old despite that he writes like a 14 year old girl and has the emotional maturity of a tomato. He didn’t get much personal growth done in the glitch world.

It doesn’t so neatly explain the different ancestor/war interpretations like a multiverse, but since Best isn’t dimension-hopping but still meeting peeps, it works well enough for establishing timelines. I personally put all my OCs in the same world with the same rules that mostly revolves around the world established on my theweightofhistory alt and the rules established on this one to make it tidier. My cult alt contributes like .01% to the world-building.))

Day I Adventure as Baby!

It hard to draw adventures with tiny cloak! But I try!

Anyway!

Now I baby again, I should find safe place! Everything look strange (both because of how draw, and sudden smallness)!

image

Like what this even! Someone be out here digging? They make sad sand castles? Leave everywhere? Maybe they be in search for something!

Do that sound like something friend do, daughter?

I no know either! Maybe! Let us investigate further!

image

Look! What this! It big hole! (It suppose to be hole in picture, I assure you!) It is eating all the sand! It shimmer-shivers into dark gullet of earth!

Should investigate?

I think yes!

image

N̵̷̨͘o̶̵̡̡! I no think this through!

Daughter! Save self — oh, you already do so! Good job!

Goodbye!
