Color palette tutorial time!
This is by no means the Only Way To Pick Colors—it’s just a relatively-simple method I use sometimes. I’ve found it works pretty well, almost regardless of what colors you pick—as long as you can keep them organized by those light/dark warm/cool categories, and make sure one category takes up a significantly higher proportion of page space, it usually turns out pretty good!
'You could've taken anyone!’ said Ron in disbelief over dinner. ‘Anyone! And you chose Loony Lovegood?’
'Don't call her that, Ron,' snapped Ginny, pausing behind Harry on her way to join friends. 'I'm really glad you're taking her, Harry, she's so excited.'
How can a teacher get mad at you for being late if a staircase changes direction while you’re in the middle of it?? There’s no tellin’ where it leaves you, and Hogwarts is a giant castle..
#I can just imagine Sirius & James #running late for their first class #when suddenly #the staircase changes direction #Sirius’ telling James #that they should just skip class #because the staircase said so #and so they toured the castle #when suddenly #they saw a boy #who has light brown hair and scars cutting across his face #running towards them #asking which direction the Potions Class is being taught #James’ being all confident says #it’s this way, come, we’ll guide you #while Sirius is hiding his grin #because really #it’s their first day #how would they memorize all the passageways in just one night #and so all day they circled around the castle #getting lost #finding their way back #discovering secret passages #all the while sealing a bond of friendship that will never break
the tags made me cry
What I really loved about AOS!Kirk’s relationship with the Enterprise was that it was done in a really subtle way that felt pretty natural. And it actually makes you stop and think, “Wait. TOS!Kirk loved the Enterprise because of 5+ years of operating it. Why does AOS!Kirk like it so much, when he’s had less than 2 years?”
Because then you remember how Jim was in the shipyard as the Enterprise is being build in Iowa. How as the Enterprise is being slowly built, Jim is slowly becoming a Starfleet Academy student, and later grows into the Captain on the Enterprise’s maiden voyage. You remember the beating the Enterprise takes, and the beating that Jim takes, before they can finally both grow and post a challenge against Nero. How they both become the hero through that journey.
Then you remember Christopher Pike, the one father figure in Jim Kirk’s life. How he’s the one who hands the Enterprise over to Jim with a kind of a proud smile and the words, “I am relieved.” Then you remember Jim’s smile as he looks around the auditorium at the cheering crowd. And you remember that look on his face as he stops for a second before settling into the Captain’s chair.
And you can’t help but to think, “Damn. That’s the most beautiful love story in all of Star Trek.”
Jim effectively thinks of the Enterprise as his kid, his daughter even. He protects her fiercely and cares about her more than most humans, I’d wager. And I think my favorite thing is that whenever he talks about his ship to anyone it’s always “my ship”, like it’s his baby, but when he talks to Spock about it, it’s “our ship” and that says a lot about their relationship, like this is is our baby. Together. Like that’s some major space husbands going on there. Even in the subtleties.
so my plan for halloween is to dress up as a Nazgul with my black horse and go trick or treating but instead of saying “trick or treat” i’ll either scream or hiss “Bagginssssssssss, Shhhhhhhire” and then ransack their villages in my search for the One Ring
