I will never forget the time I laughed for about five minutes straight, and a few close friends on tumblr can attest to this. College cafeteria, around lunchtime, I think I chugged a few chocolate bars and some fizzy drink and I was sitting in a group of about 6 or so people. Back to lesson in half an hour so we were making the most of it, chatting and such.
Then, a scene from a fanfic pops into my head. If you know of the Primarchs in 40k then you’ll know they have a well-written fic named after them, and this particular scene has Perturabo commenting on the aerodynamics of dead babies (disgusting I know, but that’s Chaos) when they are pushed off a swing.
I was trying to relay this to a friend when my brain broke the laughing switch, and try as I might to even breathe, all that was coming out of my mouth was the loud, booming sound of my laughter. I could not tell if the other students in my vicinity were giving me strange looks, as my head was thudding against the table in an effort to stop my lungs giving out.
My girlfriend is on the verge of joining me, despite not clearly knowing why I was laughing, a few other faces were in a state of amused perplexion but my friend was…
How do you describe a feeling of such fantastic amusement?
Tl;dr I have laughed so hard it felt like my ribs decided to make me into a triangle

SWEET MERCY HE’S HANDSOME
Hunger leans inwards, his teeth bared in a grotesque grin. "Make me."
Nothing stirs up sexual tension quite as much as saying, “Make me.” Put it in my askbox to see how my muse reacts.
"I will find a way to end you. Just wait.”
Hunger laughs, a horrid, rasping sound as he playfully ruffles her hair “Go ahead, Er. Last time someone said that t’ me it was t’ middle ages. See if y’ can’t come up with somethin’ original, I enjoy a challenge.”
Lotsa fun drawing this one, it’s nice to get back to drawing nowadays.
I considered having honey dripping off this honey, but that seems kinda overcomplicated.
I’m really upset and confused and happy and laughing like out loud right now.
King of the Monsters 2 on Genesis is one of my favorite games of all time. I mean it was better than the other versions. It was a balanced 2D fighter with 3D elements. You could play it like a pre-smash with items and hazards or turn them off and go legit. And it still holds up in a lot of ways. It was hugely influential to me! Like… ridiculous giant monsters? Destroying cities? And battling each other to the death? It was awesome. And a GREAT fighter with GREAT designs!
And Aqua Slug was my favorite. Because he was a slug. Well… a snail… thing… and he had some really risky but super powerful attacks. But he was a weird slime snail invertebrate vertebrate that could form hands and punch you and also had this giant shell tail thing and was vaguely solid but not. And you could see the skeleton inside sometimes and he was just cool.
And I’ve always held this game dear to my heart. Really dear. It made me love giant monsters and fighting games. My favorite things. I reminisce about it very often. Even String knows a lot about it because of how much I talk about it and admire the cartridge and box and manual. And you guys see me posting Aqua Slug gifs and other gifs from the game all the time. And music in the stream too! It had some super complicated commands with holds and QCFHCB commands in the air and all kinds of shit and I remember it all for every character.

The post in which the universe makes sense to Slug.
This is some gigantic conspiracy thingymabob.
I feel like every day I spend not drawing something more and more of what I had begins to wittle away!
I need to draw again but I lack the willpower to make it so, I usually plan to draw then just go “nope gaming”
Does anyone have any tips or tricks to help them art? Anything would be greatly appreciated!
