If you’re primarily an MCU fan, I think the best fix would be to watch Avengers Assemble, since the canon is also more based in MCU, but it’s different enough that nothing is awful and everything is about the Avengers being a family. (Also Steve and Tony are very married? And I know people keep saying that, and it sounds too good to be true, but it IS!!!)

As for blogs, the only two I can think of that are 100% Steve/Tony all the time are wingheadshellhead and stonystonysto, but there are also a bunch of personal blogs too that are very invested. Unfortunately I need to get going ASAP so I can’t do fic recs at the moment, so, I’ll try to get to that later in the day!

ANYWAY I’ll turn on replies so people can rec fics/blogs to follow below. Hope that helps!!

Aaah! xD

5 favorite characters: Alice, Carlisle, Sam, Billy, Seth

3 OTPs: Carlisle/Esme, Billy+Charlie, Jacob/Edward.

Funniest character: Seth

Prettiest character: Jacob

Most badass character: Alice

Character I’d like as my BFF: I’m pretty tempted to say Rosalie, but I think she’d get on my nerves in a hurry, so probably Alice or Carlisle

Character that’s ruined my life: all of them, though not necessarily in good ways. xD

BITMAP WATERCOLOR BRUSHES, Y’ALL!!! Want to make some SAI brushes in FireAlpaca? Check out THIS handy Guide!

Want to make this brush? Just make a perfect circle and save it (I call mine “round”) and use it as the bitmap, and copy the settings above. It works pretty nicely :D



Here is where you can download FireAlpaca (it is completely free software)

*If English is not your native language, you can download it in other languages.

Please download from the official FireAlpaca websites, because a friend of mine simply googled FireAlpaca and downloaded from some random site, and she got malware! So PLEASE be careful.

FireAlpaca has a suggestion/bug reporting box on their site so you can request features, or let them know if you’re having any issues! Also FireAlpaca works fantastically on Mac computers! (though I will say the only time FA has crashed on me is when I used a Mac, so PLEASE save your work often)

Also, please visit these tumblrs if you do get into using FireAlpaca:

@everythingfirealpaca @fpacatuto

for anyone who wants an alt to Sai. :O

@valynara ! Hey remember when i told you fire alpaca was a good alternative? Check it out its great for mac!

I keep telling people this is a great program and it really is!

Fire Alpaca is seriously one of the best drawing programs I’ve used.  And I’ve tried a lot of them.  It’s a pretty fine alternative to Photoshop too.  I actually have Photoshop, and sometimes I use Fire Alpaca anyway.  Did we mention IT’S FREE?

I think it’s worth mentioning that these are oil paintings, not photoshopped pictures. This guy is amazing, check him out.
