timeskip asked:

16 and 26??

16. Favorite scent

i think the smell of grill/fire smoke is nice (given that i'm not to close)

26. A fandom that you were once a part of but aren’t any longer

harry potter, definitely. it started out as just normal fading from my interest, but then jkr just kept revealing her terrible opinions so i now i don't have the same draw to it anymore. i still follow people who are into it so i still see stuff about it but i don't actively search for new content

  1. save/invest around a quater of the money for my family
  2. donate almost all the rest to charities
  3. keep a couple thousands to hand out to nice people who might need it

transwerewolf asked:

9-12 :3c

(still answering these with tigress bc it's the one on my mind)

9. which oc is your personal favorite?

oh man.... it's either cara (main character), or zoya. both of their personalities are pretty bold and matter-of-fact, so it's fun to think of scenes for them. also zoya has a whole accidental spy side plot going on with arthur so i've been having fun with her!

10. do you tend to give your ocs your own habits and traits? or are they radically different from you?

not really? i have a handful of ocs who do things i like (drawing, sewing, writing, etc) but for the most part i try to give them diverse interests. also most of my ocs are way bolder and firey than me, so pretty different i'd say.

11. what's one of your ocs' fashion style like? do they even care about fashion, or do they dress how they want?

zoya's the only one with a developed style so far, and she kinda has three. most school days its dressy and formal (trench coats, blazers, long black skirts, a lot of neutral colors), in summer or weekend events its brighter and flowy (long colorful dresses over long-sleeve shirts, those skirts with a lot of fabric that swirl when you spin, pastel hijabs, white and geometric patterns), and at home it's very casual (sweatpants and graphic tees). she doesn't much care about fashion trends, and mostly puts on what she wants.

12. which oc is your first? has their design/personality changed since you first came up with them?

cara and cassidy are definitely te first ocs i came up with for tigress, but exactly how old they are kind of depends on how you look at it. i've had opposing fire and ice characters since middle school, but those original ocs didn't really have a story? or any peronality, really. the first time i drew and thought about the characters the would be cara and cassidy with the intent to make a story out of it was about two/three years ago, i think. they started out as children of two different clans/royalty who hated each other. that cara had a big sister, mother, and an uncle who were all basically firebenders, while cassidy's family were icebenders, and the two were much more tramatized. cara was super angry and angsty, and cassidy was less awkward and more lone wolf like. i still have a story based off that draft, but the ice family is gone and i changed how the magic worked. i then took proto cara and cassidy out of it, quibbled on what to do with them, and eventually drew an unrelated tiger superhero and decided to combine the idea into cara as of now, building the rest of the current cast and plot off of that. so yeah, i'd say they changed a lot.


bodys asked:

1 and 7 !! >:3

1 has already been answered!

7. where is your story set, and why is it set there?

continuing with the supehero story, i'm currently setting it in seattle bc i didn't want to make up a city nor did i want to be cliche about it and put it in new york (either the city or the state). so, the needle it was!


babushka asked:

1,2,3,5,6, 8,13

1. how many stories do you currently have in the works/are thinking about?

oh god, A LOT. there are about five that i can think of off-hand so i'll just say five.

2. if you have multiple, are they all the same genre? or do you have different genres? (ei. si-fi, classical fantasy, modern fantasy, historical fiction)

oh, they're absolutely not all the same genre. of the five, there's two modern fantasy, one si-fi, one superhero, and one actual fantasy. but if i was to say the most common genre i use it'd be modern fantasy.

3. why did you pick a certain genre?

to chose one, the si-fi story was because i wanted to write about a super-genius girl with spies for parents but didn't want to deal with actual current politics and how spies would opperate in them. also futuristic stuff is fun and i wanted to add robots and solarpunk stuff.


(for the rest of these i'll talk just about the superhero story)

5. describe your main story as vaguely/weirdly as possible.

using arson, a pocketwatch, and the power of friendship, a tiger made of fire and a wannabe engineer team up to fight a bunch of margin doodles made by a bird lady. said bird lady also has a rabbit furry ninja for a lacky who steals shit for her by breathing down on people's necks and ice cubes.

6. what's your main character fighting against? the government, another person, themself? are they well prepared to do so?

the main character is mainly fighting against a supervillain and her monsters (and maybe pimordial gods later? that's being workshopped). she starts out SUPER unperpared but she gets better a few fights in, mostly because she's a quick student. which is good, otherwise she'd probably be a splat on the wall.

8. what are your main plot inspirations from popular media? 

uh, most superhero comics, especially ones which magic jewelry like shazam and green lantern. also magical girls. 

13. do your ocs often have skills you wish you had? (ei. are good at cooking when you aren't, can boat while you live landlocked and have never been in the sea)

kfdjgm yeah. cara (mc) is interested in engineering and can play multiple instruments, while her friends all have cool skills like stage magic, analysis, etc. cassidy, the secondary protag is a figure skater, too!


another oc/story ask meme

i think these are cool and i want to hear about people's stuff so here we go! you can just reblog and reply with any answers you want, or use it like an actual ask meme and have followers send in questions!

1. how many stories do you currently have in the works/are thinking about?

2. if you have multiple, are they all the same genre? or do you have different genres? (ei. si-fi, classical fantasy, modern fantasy, historical fiction)

3. why did you pick a certain genre?

4. going off number 3, when it comes to common tropes in the genre, do you lean in to them, or are you going against the typical?

5. describe your main story as vaguely/weirdly as possible.

6. what's your main character fighting against? the government, another person, themself? are they well prepared to do so?

7. where is your story set, and why is it set there?

8. what are your main plot inspirations from popular media? 

9. which oc is your personal favorite?

10. do you tend to give your ocs your own habits and traits? or are they radically different from you?

11. what's one of your ocs' fashion style like? do they even care about fashion, or do they dress how they want?

12. which oc is your first? has their design/personality changed since you first came up with them?

13. do your ocs often have skills you wish you had? (ei. are good at cooking when you aren't, can boat while you live landlocked and have never been in the sea)

14. assuming yes for number 13, did you have to research a lot about said skills? or are you just winging it?

15. do all your ocs have a full name (first and last)? if not, is it because they don't need one in-story, or have you just not found the right names yet?

Bonus: if you've done any writing for your work, please paste a sentence or two!

perish asked:

top 5 celebrity crushes

i don't really pay attention to celebrities so i don't think i have five? anna hathaway, zendaya, tom holland, and the actress who played shuri (can't remember her name rn)


rosefairy asked:

Top 5 childhood shows/movie?

oh man, uhhhhhhhhh, dora the explorer, powerpuff girls, courage the cowardly dog, kiki's delivery service, and the scooby doo movie with the monster children, with totoro as an honorable mention bc i love it just as much as kiki's but that makes six


aurenfaie asked:

10, 14, & 20 for the LGBT ask meme?

10. Would your aesthetic/presentation be any different in a world without anti-LGBT+ sentiments? Would you behave differently?
uhhhhh shitty bi pun shirts all the way! otherwise i wouldn't change my look much, i like it as is. i'd probably be more direct about how attractive i find the girls i know without hiding it behind the guise of fashion or something. also i'd just straight up ask them if they were into women too


14. If you could make any character(s) explicitly LGBT+, who would they be?

i don't know, maybe i'd make harry potter bi? hp was one of the first series i got well and truely into, and it would have been nice to have someone to relate too; maybe i would have figure myself out sooner! and its not like there isn't canon basis with all the times he talks about other guys' looks

 

20. Which pride flag do you find most aesthetically pleasing?

the newer lesbian flag with the orange is suer pretty! but that's just because i'm a slut for warm-toned paletts. and of course i like the bi flag, though i wish the colors were warmer, for reasons stated above




plum asked:

15, 16, and 30!

15. Do you listen to any LGBT+ musicians? If yes, who are they?

I just started listening to girl in red, which is *chefs kiss* MAGNIFIQUE, as well as mika. other than that i'm not sure, most of my music comes from me stumbling upon it on youtube, so i rarely know much about the artists themselves /shrug


16. Do you have a favorite LGBT+ artist and/or author? If yes, who are they? (can be fan creations or original creations)

oof, the only one i can think of right now is abd-illustrates on tumblr. there's more but i'm bad at remembering names 


30. Do you have a favorite LGBT+ meme? If yes, what is it?

YEAH, you know the memes where people go "this is me respecting bi women" with a picture of kermit or something motion blurred and surrounded by hearts, and it turns into a long string of people proclaiming their support for everyone else? those always make me smile

also: *is mildly inconvenienced* this is BIPHOBIA
