Trying to get an old Wacom tablet to work with an outdated-but-still-more-recent version of Photoshop, on a laptop with Windows 8.1
Holy crap, I should just buy a new tablet and PS and be done with it. This is a puzzle I don’t enjoy solving.
This pisses me off royally.
Around Christmas 2012, I put together an Avengers-themed ring design for my then-boyfriend, and had it custom engraved via Etsy by a shop called CustomTungsten.
This morning I look at my Facebook feed, and my exact design pops up. No mention of me or whatever, just my design copied exactly.
And sure, a ring with the Avenger symbols might be a very common thing, but I recognize my exact design (for instance, I used a slightly wonky DNA strand for the Hulk instead of the common fist because my boyfriend preferred that, and for Hawkeye I used the bow he uses in the movie, instead of just a regular old bow. Also the order of the 6 symbols is exactly the same, It’s my ring design, no doubt about it).
I send the shop (they’ve moved on from Etsy as far as I can tell) a message, but I’m not holding out much hope they’ll even reply.
"Has no one ever told you that policemen are your friends?"
"That’s not what my dad says. He says you’re all bastards."
Well that was an emotional punch in the gut, and I am 'not okay', as it is custom to say in fandoms.
Last time a series had me flailing this much was.. well, Lewis’s ‘Life born of Fire’ actually, so it must be something in Morse!verse.
I just have such a weak spot for characters like Jakes ._.
Just did a check: I’ve got 33 cards from different photographers this weekend, and that’s only the ones who actually had cards.
I’m estimating almost 200 people took my picture in total.
I’ll allow myself this bit of bragging for once, because OH MY GOD WHAT THE HELL?!
I didn’t really feel my costume was that much better than last year’s, or really anything special at all, especially compared to all the fantastic creations some other people wore.
..I love getting attention for things I’m proud of xD
I just realized I forgot to paint in some pretty important details of my costume make-up today.
