I understand that a lot of people enjoy writing shipfics where they transplant characters into a college setting. Since some writers may not be in college, or may have graduated a long time ago, I thought I’d offer a helpful list of realistic college meet not-so-cute scenarios. Forget baristas. This is where it’s at. 

- I’m really passionate about this cause and I will give you this flier if I have to shove it down your throat

- vicious battle over the only left handed desk in the room

- my roommate’s boyfriend is staying over so can I please sleep on your floor

- it’s pouring and my final paper is in my backpack so I guess we’re stuck under this tiny awning together. do you think they’d deliver pizza here

- hey I have to photograph someone for class will you be my model

- hey I have to take someone’s blood pressure for class will you be my victim

- variations of the above

- I know I keep coming to the cookie shop and for some reason it’s always your shift but don’t you dare judge me I need these for my sanity

- all our friends are drunk

- it’s 3 am and I’m still in the library studying for finals and I’m losing my grip on reality and I think I just saw a ghost

- we’re the only two people in this club. what is this club even for

- humans vs zombies (see you can still have your zombie AU, best of both worlds)

- we’re the only people who ever talk in discussions it’s awful



- Neither of us bought the expensive textbook but there is only one copy in the library and it can’t leave the building

- This awesome professor only has one TA slot and we’re rivals

- I found your USB drive still in the computer

- I thought I was the only one who liked the waffle station in the cafeteria

- You keep reserving the good study room in the corner of the library with the windows

- We’re studying in the library and there are two people very obviously fucking in the stacks and we keep sharing embarrassed glances

- We’re both donating blood in the blood donation van in the quad to get out of the same class

- You decked me in the head while you were playing frisbee golf

- Wait, I actually have a competent lab partner?

- You’re the RA and you’re trying to bust me for having hermit crabs

- You’re baking cookies in the communal kitchen at 3am and I’m angry but also really hungry

- What are you doing at this table at the career fair

- Waiting for office hours

- I’ve been sitting in this seat all semester why did you decide to sit in it today

- Clearly we’re both really uncomfortable at this party

- You peed on my car. You were drunk. I was in the car. There will be hell to pay.

- We started racing up the three flights of stairs to class for some reason and we can’t stop

- You’re REALLY GOOD at using the right search terms for the academic databases and I’m on a deadline

-my friend dragged me to this party and I just saw my ex quick make out with me

-we’re always at the fitness center at the same time and end up competing on the treadmill

- Sorry my roommate puked on your shoes

- Can I borrow a dryer sheet? I ran out and the ones in the vending machine give me a rash

-Your school mailbox is right next to mine

-I saw you sneaking captain crunch and cutlery out of the dining hall

-My roommate borrowed your contraband hotpot and managed to set it on fire

-You keep using my preferred shower stall in the floor bathrooms when I’m trying to get ready for class

-My computer crashed and you’re the student worker at the IT center

-we’re both on althetic teams that aren’t as cool as the football team and they give us shit

- You’re part of the guerrilla theater club on campus and crashed my class for a performance

-What do you mean we’re under a tornado warning?

when it comes to specific poses I try to first draw the most basic shapes and movement lines and then gradually go into more and more details, like so:



if you have difficulties with perspective, try drawing a perspective grid first:


it’s nothing different than tips from other artists, but I hope it helped a little ;u;

Coming in just under the wire to mark Bi Awareness Day, I shamelessly post this to remind my readers (and the Internet!) that the entirety of my Adaptation series is now out, including the Bisexual Book Award-winning Inheritance. Here’s more about them:

And I should remind you that due to continuing difficulties in business negotiations with Amazon, you will likely have problems buying them on Amazon. So please if you’re interested, try buying them elsewhere! Your local independent bookstore, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Google Play, etc., will all be able to get them to you — as well as your local library.

Happy Bi Awareness Day!

Reblogging for my DiYA co-founder, Queen of Pie Charts, Malinda, because she is rad. And so are these books!

Character: Sophie Winters
Appears in: Far From You 
Commonly Interpreted as: Bisexual

Sophie, the protagonist, comes out to a friend as bisexual in the middle of the book, and actually uses the word herself! So she is irrefutably bisexual in canon.

Though this book has a lot of other elements to it, it’s primarily about Sophie’s relationship with her friend Mina and how they cope with their feelings for one another developing into something more than just friendship. Something that I think works really well is that their relationship operates on more than one level, and while there is certainly a sexual element, I would say that the focus is mostly on the romantic bond between them.

To avoid spoiling a major plot component of the book, I’ll just say that Sophie also experiences attraction to a male character, and though she characterizes it as being different than her attraction to Mina, both are treated as valid in their own ways, and Sophie’s bisexuality is not based on stereotypes or tropes.

Another positive about this book is that Sophie has a physical disability as well as a drug addiction, and both are portrayed in believable and honest ways without dominating her character as a whole.

Thanks to  for this submission.
