WIP - I started to illustrate Twist & Shout and because I love challenges, I decided to illustrate the fic on a 14 x 135 cm scroll (5.5” x 53.1”) that will be folded later into a tiny book. I’m using only two black ballpoint pens, a mechanical pencil (for construction lines) and a sepia Prismacolor pencil (PC943 Ocre Brûlée). I drew the main scenes of the fics, from the boys meeting to Dean going to war to…well, you know what happens at the end.
What you can see here are the first 12cm (4.7”), that still need some reworking. I’m far from being done, I think I still have one-two weeks of work. I did the same thing for J2 (no particular fic) on a 81cm (31.9”) long scroll but it’s not finished either, I’m gonna need some blue ink for that one.
Watch!: And when you started out, there were almost no Asian-Americans on TV. Now you’re Watson. The TV my Asian-American daughter grows up watching will be very different than what I grew up watching.
Lucy: It is significant, and I think we still have a long way to go. It is good that you’ll have to explain to her that when Daddy was a teenager, there wasn’t anybody like her on television. People say I’m a pioneer, but I don’t recognize it because I’m still living it. Maybe on my last breath if they name a street after me in the city, I’ll say, “Wow, I made a difference.” Right now, it doesn’t feel like it. [x]

What you don’t seem to realized is that there are many different levels of intelligence. Wasn’t Luna the one that found a way to get to the ministry? Wasn’t Luna the one to always comfort Harry- the one who understood him in ways that no one else could? You don’t have to have Book smarts to be considered smart. It’s clear that Luna has very high levels of interpersonal intelligence. To be honest I don’t even know where this is coming from- we never see her in a classroom, we don’t see her grades- wtf are you talking about? Because she believes in things other people don’t? Do we have proof that those things don’t exist!? This was one of the most important themes in the book- Voldemort, the chamber of secrets, the room of requirement, horcruxes, Ravenclaw’s diadem, THE DEATHLY HALLOWS….. people didn’t believe they existed but eventually they were proven wrong. So why should Luna be considered stupid just because she chooses to believe!? And I can’t… because she doesn’t try to make friends!? Really? Fucking REALLY!? WHY would you try to be friends with people who treat you like crap? Who bully you and call you names just because you’re different? No one needs friends like that. And Luna didn’t need people like that in her life and she knew that. Didn’t she eventually find the friends that she deserved? The ones that accepted her quirks and differences and didn’t try and make her change? Frankly, I’m ashamed of you. You’re showing levels of narrow-minded ignorance a Ravenclaw shouldn’t possess.
Fuck, being a Ravenclaw does NOT mean being academically brilliant and overly logical and having a stick up your ass. It means being open to new ideas and alternatives and being willing to think outside of the box; it means accepting that you do not know everything but nonetheless choosing to follow your own path and learn for the sake of learning. It means not judging others for their eccentricities because there are so many different types of intelligence. While it makes logical sense that Ravenclaws would be good at academics and smart, being smart has multiple facets. Two brilliant people could disagree with one another on everything just because their modes of thought and the way they process information is completely different. Luna was different, and the way she processed reality may seem funny, but that doesn’t detract from the fact that she passionately searched for information about things she was interested in, even if that thing is a crumple horned snorkack. Being a Ravenclaw means accepting the world for being a strange and marvelous as it is, and seizing it to learn all of its intricacies. Luna is more a Ravenclaw than you will ever be.
Can we also bring up the fact that one of the magical creatures she “made up” was found to be true, but only certain people could see it so they thought she was insane?
If the thestral was real, who’s to say the other things weren’t?
I knew when the answer opened with those gifs that someone was going to get schooled.
Are we never going to talk about how the “password” to the Ravenclaw tower is a RIDDLE?
A Ravenclaw who is strictly logical will LITERALLY BE UNABLE TO GET TO THEIR DORM. A Ravenclaw who has book-smarts and cannot think outside the box and take the weird answer WILL NOT BE ABLE TO BE A RAVENCLAW. “Which came first, the phoenix or the flame?” “Where do Vanished objects go?”
TO BE A RAVENCLAW YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX. YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO TAKE THE ANSWER THAT ISN’T GIVEN, TO TAKE THE WEIRD OPTION AND FLIGHT OF FANCY AND MAKE SENSE OF IT. BECAUSE THAT’S THE KIND OF RIDDLE RAVENCLAWS LIVE ON. THE KIND OF RIDDLE THAT ACTS AS A KEY TO GET INTO THEIR DAMN DORM.
AND WHAT’S MORE, YOU KNOW WHO WAS THE SHITTIEST TO LUNA, AS FAR AS WE CAN TELL FROM THE BOOKS? OTHER. RAVENCLAWS. RAVENCLAWS ARE THE ONLY ONES WHO COULD HAVE GOTTEN INTO HER DORM AND TAKE THINGS. RAVENCLAWS HAD TO HAVE A BIG FUCKING HAND IN TORMENTING LUNA. WHY THE FUCK SHOULD SHE MAKE FRIENDS WITH THOSE PEOPLE?
this post is so great because it demonstrates exactly how luna got bullied for being different and also how she got a badass posse of friends to save the goddamn world with
DAMN, SHOTS FIRED!
All Dean has ever wanted is the one thing he just can’t have: a family of his own. And while so many things have stood in his way, it boils down to the fact that he believes people would be better off without him. It’s not hard to see why. When Dean is caught stealing, John can’t even be bothered to come pick him up, he’d rather have him “rot in jail.” So yeah, of course Dean thinks he doesn’t matter, can’t see his own worth. But just look! Dean, can’t you see how perfect you are for this job? He always knows just what to say, because he remembers when he was young. Remembers the things he wished John would say, on days when he wanted nothing more than for his father to look him in the eye. But he can’t fold, can’t indulge, because he’s afraid of what he has the potential to become. Please Dean, can’t you see? That’s not you. You’re a better man than your daddy ever was, Dean Winchester.
And Dean always squats down when he’s talking to kids, gets on their level. It takes the whole “adults looking down on you” dynamic away and just leaves a grown man bringing himself down to look them straight in the eyes. Because he remembers what it felt like to be looked down on, in many ways still knows what it feels like to be looked down on, whether he’s actually being looked down on or just imagining it. Because Dean Winchester has never felt worthy of anything or anybody. That’s why he always makes excuses for John and for Sam and for Cas. Why he always runs back to them. Why he’ll never stop defending them. Because no matter what they do, it can’t be as bad as how he thinks of himself.
You’re a better man than your daddy ever was, Dean Winchester.
