“In a world where people don’t see in color until they find their true mate”
OH MY GOD
HELLO YES I WOULD LIKE ONE 40K FIC PLEASE
OMG I NEED TO WRITE THIS STEREK FIC
I’LL GET THE JOHNLOCK ONE JUST AS SOON AS I GET DONE WITH ANOTHER PROJECT… UNLESS SOMEONE ELSE GETS TO IT FIRST.
Sherlock grimaced at the slide, wishing for the umpteenth time that he could see the color on it. Not that he wanted the complications that would come from what that meant, mind you. He heard Mike walk in talking to someone behind him.
"Good, you’re here. Mike, tell me what color you see on the slide," Sherlock commanded without looking up.
"Ah, sure, one second," Mike said as he hung up his coat. Sherlock stood and backed away from the microscope as Mike introduced his friend. "Sherlock Holmes, John Watson. John Watson, Sherlock Holmes."
Sherlock stared at the new man, “Your eyes! They’re blue!” he said startled as the grey world began to crystallize into color around him, instinctively knowing what each color was. The blond man looked at him startled.
"Yes, so I’ve been told." John stammered, "And your’s…they’re…well what color are they exactly?"
Sherlock’s heart sank. This had been known to happen before, one’s true mate not actually being able to reciprocate the feelings of the other.
"No really, they’re hard to pin down," John said as he searched the taller man’s face, "I can’t tell if they’re blue or green or something in between. I thought we were supposed to know which colors were which."
Would you mind terribly if I asked what your major is? Is it traditional animation? What are you opinions on the industry--I am currently an animation student as well and I'm trying to decide whether or not to go into 3D or Traditional hehe
Technically it’s called “directing animated film” which roughly translates to “do you want to learn any useful skill? Well, fuck you! Here, learn how to dance tango!” (btw, that tango shit - true story)
School aside I stick to mostly to traditional stuff: drawn, cut-outs I also think about stop-motion. I’ve had a brief (very, very brief) Maya course and for now I tend to avoid that noise. I suppose it’s a valuable skill tho, so who knows.
I still live in that perfect, imaginary world in which you can do what you feel good at and I try to keep as much work I do ‘organic’(?). But yeah, at the end of the day you have to know every friggin program pack if you want to get a job.
On the other hand traditional (or mostly traditional) animated films will never cease to be important.
I have no advice. Maybe only that first and most important thing is to do what makes you feel good. And I realize that’s a shit advice >w<’
btw, how does your course work? Do you also have to make a film every year? Attend film festivals? I always wonder how does is look like everywhere else.
“We always talk about the downside of [fandom] because that’s the more colourful thing to talk about. There are many more fans out there whose response to wishing for creative control is to make up their own stories. And to make up their own ideas, and to make beautiful drawings, and scripts of their own. There is the slash fiction - and why not? What’s wrong with porn? It’s made many people in this room happy; it’s a vessel of human happiness, why should we object to it? It’s a creative response to something! That’s brilliant and wonderful and heartening and exciting when that happens. Because that’s how people start being writers. It is. You start being a writer by imitating other writers. Mark and I never stopped!…That is a hugely positive thing and yes, of course, somewhere in amongst that there is the clinically insane, but we can’t allow that to dominate the conversation.”—Steven Moffat on fans and fanfiction at Sherlock: Anatomy of a Hit [x] (via thecutteralicia)
On the subject of Eragon: It's really one of those books you read as a kid and simply loved because it was easily read, graspable and, well, dragons. When you have some more experience and a mind of your own, I at least found the books to be really, REALLY simplistic, badly written, boring plot and had one of the worst endings i have ever experienced. So I recommend you to reread it and fully appreciate other books that made such a better impact on the fantasy world than those four did.
Hm, yeah I’m going to read them with that in mind.
Lately I came back to His Dark Materials series, which I simply adored when I was younger, with similar attiude just to find out if it’s just nostalgia or actual value speaking. I must say, I was really surprised how much I love it still as an adult. One of my most favorite fantasy..-ish books ever.
Since everyone is making comments and mentioning dragon-related book series because of your dragonlock, I wanted in on the fun as well. The age of Fire series by E.E. Knigh is awsome, I just finished it last week and it's well worth the read if you haven't read it yet! :)
another dragon series?? aaaalright gotta read them all. >w<
namara-ashina said: it’s by Christopher Paolini, the first one is called Eragon. it’s been a long time since i read it though so i don’t remember how good it is. i should re-read that
OOOOOHhhh yeeeeaaaaah I remember now!. I’ve read Eragon. It was ages ago tho, also in polish so “Inheritance” didn’t ring a bell immediately ^^’. Yeah, I think I liked those but now I can’t remember shit about them. Man I think I’ll re-read them too.
