Hello LilyGinnyBlack :) What do you think about Haru and Rin moment, in nine episode of Free! ? What Haru actually meant, when he was telling Rin, that he swims for himself and his friends? Wasn't Rin excluded from Haru friends group? :< that was really nasty I think! I ship RinHaru, they are really great together, and they complete each other. I feel really bad for Rin. He only screamed for Haru because now they can't swim together since Haru messed up at this point...

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
    
  1. Stay with us and keep calm.
    The last thing we need when we’re panicking, is to have someone else panicking with us.

  2. Offer medicine if we usually take it during an attack.
    You might have to ask whether or not we take medicine- heck, some might not; but please, ask. It really helps.

  3. Move us to a quiet place.
    We need time to think, to breathe. Being surrounded by people isn’t going to help.

  4. Don’t make assumptions about what we need. Ask.
    We’ll tell you what we need. Sometimes; you may have to ask- but never assume.

  5. Speak to us in short, simple sentences.

  6. Be predictable. Avoid surprises.

  7. Help slow our breathing by breathing us or by counting slowly to 10.
    As odd as it sounds, it works.
                                                                                                                 
WHAT YOU SHOULDN’T DO:

1. Say, “You have nothing to be panicked about.”
We know. We know. We know. And because we know we have nothing to be panicked about, we panic even more. When I realize that my anxiety is unfounded, I panic even more because then I feel like I’m not in touch with reality. It’s unsettling. Scary.

Most of the time, a panic attack is irrational. Sometimes they stem from circumstances — a certain couch triggers a bad memory or being on an airplane makes you claustrophobic or a break up causes you to flip your lid — but mostly, the reasons I’m panicking are complex, hard to articulate or simply, unknown. I could tell myself all day that I have no reason to be having a panic attack and I would still be panicking. Sometimes, because I’m a perfectionist, I become even more overwhelmed when I think my behaviour is “unacceptable” (as I often believe it is when I’m panicking). I know it’s all in my mind, but my mind can be a pretty dark and scary place when it gets going.

Alternate suggestion: Say, “I understand you’re upset. It is okay. You have a right to be upset and I am here to help.”


2. Say, “Calm down.”
This reminds me of a MadTV sketch where Bob Newhart plays a therapist who tells his patients to simply “Stop it!” whenever they express anxiety or fear. As a sketch, it’s funny. In real life, it’s one of the worst things you can do to someone having a panic attack. When someone tells me to “stop panicking” or to “calm down,” I just think, “Oh, okay. I haven’t tried that one. Hold on, let me get out a pen and paper and jot that down, you jerk.

Instead of taking action so that they do relax, simply telling a panicking person to “calm down” or “stop it” does nothing. No-thing.

Alternate suggestion: The best thing to do is to listen and support. In order to calm them down without the generalities, counting helps.


3. Say, “I’m just going to leave you alone for a minute.”
Being left alone while panicking makes my heart race even harder. The last thing I want is to be left by myself with my troubled brain. Many of my panic attacks spark from over-thinking and it’s helpful to have another person with me, not only for medical reasons (in case I pass out or need water) but also it’s helpful to have another person around to force me to think about something other than the noise in my head.

Alternate suggestion: It sometimes helps me if the person I’m with distracts me by telling me a story or sings to me. I need to get out of my own head and think about something other than my own panic.


4. Say, “You’re overreacting.”
Here’s the thing: I’m not. Panic attacks might be in my head, but I’m in actual physical pain. If you’d cut open your leg, no one would be telling you you’re overreacting. It’s a common trope in mental health to diminish the feelings or experience of someone suffering from anxiety or panic because there’s no visible physical ailment and because there’s no discernible reason for the person to be having such a strong fear reaction.

The worst thing you can tell someone who is panicking is that they are overreacting.

Alternate suggestion: Treat a panic attack like any other medical emergency. Listen to what the person is telling you. Get them water if they need it. It helps me if someone rubs my back a little. If you’re in over your head, don’t hesitate to call 911 (or whatever the emergency services number is where you are). But please, take the person seriously. Mental health deserves the same respect as physical health.

What is your acne telling you?
1 &amp; 2: Digestive System — Eat less processed or junk food, reduce the amount of fat in your diet, step up water intake and opt for cooling things like cucumbers.
3: Liver — Cut out the alcohol, greasy food and dairy. This is the zone where food allergies also show up first, so take a look at your ingredients. Besides all this, do 30 minutes of light exercise every day and get adequate sleep so your liver can rest.
4 &amp; 5: Kidneys — Anything around the eyes (including dark circles) point to dehydration. Drink up!
6: Heart — Check your blood pressure (mine was slightly high) and Vitamin B levels. Decrease the intake of spicy or pungent food, cut down on meat and get more fresh air. Besides this, look into ways to lower cholesterol, like replacing “bad fats” with “good fats” such as Omegas 3 and 6 found in nuts, avocados, fish and flax seed. Also, since this area is chock-full of dilated pores, check that your makeup is not past its expiry date or is skin-clogging.
7 &amp; 8: Kidneys — Again, drink up! And cut down on aerated drinks, coffee and alcohol as these will cause further dehydration.
Zone 9 &amp; 10: Respiratory system — Do you smoke? Have allergies? This is your problem area for both. If neither of these is the issue, don’t let your body overheat, eat more cooling foods, cut down on sugar and get more fresh air. Also keep the body more alkaline by avoiding foods that make the body acidic (meat, dairy, alcohol, caffeine, sugar) and adding more alkalizing foods like green veggies and wheatgrass juice. Another thing that most of forget – dirty cell phones and pillow cases are two of the top acne culprits and this area is what they affect the most!
Zone 11 &amp; 12: Hormones — This is the signature zone for stress and hormonal changes. And while both are sometimes unavoidable, you can decrease their effect by getting adequate sleep, drinking enough water, eating leafy veggies and keeping skin scrupulously clean. Another interesting point: breakouts in this area indicate when you are ovulating (and on which side).
Zone 13: Stomach — Step up the fibre intake, reduce the toxin overload and drink herbal teas to help with digestion.
14: Illness — Zits here can be a sign that your body is fighting bacteria to avoid illness. Give it a break, take a yoga class, take a nap, take time to breathe deeply, drink plenty of water and know that everything always works out!
So the next time you break out or notice dark under-eye circles, look to your face map: your skin is probably trying to communicate on behalf of the internal organs. However, do remember that, as with all medical issues, it is always best to see your doctor or dermotologist for a proper prognosis. This is just a general guide to head you off in the right investigative direction – just because you break out between the brows doesn’t always mean you have a bad liver!

whoa. I’m keeping this.

In the Victorian era, hand-fans were used not only to cool oneself but also as a secret way to communicate the language of love. For example, by running one’s fingers through the fan’s ribs, one is trying to say, "I want to talk to you." The enigmatic language of the fan was widely used by both men and women.I. A fan placed near the heart."You have won my love."II. A closed fan touching the right eye."When may I be allowed to see you?"III. A closed fan moved threateningly."Do not act so impudently!"IV.

ennui160:

I decided to put together a masterpost of resources I know and have (mostly) used when making doujinshi, comics, etc. I hope this helps someone!

Resources

blambot - their free fonts are great for comics, and their license allows you to use them for self published works even if you’re making a profit

fontsquirrel - all fonts are advertised as being free for commercial use, but I’ve found quite a few that actually are not. has a lot of fonts, but please read the license first. if no license is included or if it’s not explicitly free for commercial use, don’t use it in printed works

digital tone studio [JPN] - tons and tons and tons of tones, for photoshop, clip studio, etc. free tones are for web use. if you use their tones on the web, a link is appreciated. accepts paypal.

eikou’s templates [JPN] - templates for comics are here if you don’t want to set up the guides yourself. however, if you’re printing, it’s probably best to use the templates/bleed specifications your printer provides

Supplies (online)

jetpens - they actually carry a lot of useful traditional manga drawing materials, like dip pens, manuscript paper, etc. also free US shipping over 25 dollars! the doujinshi size manuscript paper is A4 size (it trims down to B5)

deleter mangashop - sells manuscript paper, pens, screentone, etc. shipping is pretty expensive, however.

Supplies (offline)

DaVinci Artist Supply - this particular davinci tends to carry screentones and doujinshi size manuscript paper, probably because they are so close to SVA
137 East 23rd Street New York NY 10010 Ph: 212 982-8607

Programs

clip studio paint - sai and mangastudio in one package. relatively cheap, also. carries a lot of screentones within the program and allows you to put down trim lines, text, etc. the cheaper version doesn’t allow you to organize your pages together in one big story, but shouldn’t really matter unless you want to mass export your files. UI is very similar to SAI when in illustration mode. I noticed that there was little to no learning curve when I first picked it up from using photoshop, SAI, and manga studio. overall a great drawing program and is great for drawing comics as well!

manga studio - a little hard to use but very versatile for comic drawing. I personally like drawing in clip studio more, but manga studio is still very good at what it does. it’s pretty hard to create illustrations with this software, but it’s more dedicated to comics (personally I use it to draw comics even though I have clip studio)

photoshop - if you really want to torture yourself. Not originally a drawing program, but has so so so many features. you can create your own guides which is a plus if you don’t want to use templates (clip studio doesn’t really allow for this, manga studio does but it’s a little confusing)

Tutorials/Info

how to make doujinshi [JPN] - very useful site! google translate is ok here… mostly. even if you don’t speak japanese, you should be able to grasp the basic idea.

Understanding Comics by Scott Mccloud - this book was given to me as basically the bible of comics. you can judge it for yourself, but I think it was a very good read, even if you don’t plan on drawing comics. It’s less about the technicalities of drawing comics and more about understanding comic based storytelling. It is also a comic book itself, interestingly.

wally wood’s 22 panels that always work - I’m always looking at this when I draw comics!!!! it’s great when I wrote a long bit of dialogue and realized I don’t know where to put anyone because I’m a dang idiot!!!!!!!

hajimete no doujinshi [JPN] - google translate sort of fails here, so this is better if you have at least a little knowledge of japanese/japanese doujin terms (for example the japanese term for trim lines translates to “dragonfly”)

Printers

doujinpress - print quality was not great a year ago, but they are currently in the process of increasing their print quality. Staff are very helpful and kind. long loooong turnaround (6 weeks). they offer perfect bound. reasonably priced. not a lot of cover stock options, but I hear that will possibly change soon… also prints R18 material (!!)

smartpress - lots of cover options, paper options, etc! billies printed with them and quality looked good (I haven’t printed with them personally). reasonably priced and offers custom sizing. default turnaround time is 3 days (!!)

this is an incomplete list. Please add more if you think it belongs on here. Thanks!
