I kind of want to make Apollo’s DLC outfit, but I wouldn’t know where to start. XD Especially when it comes to what fabric to use for his jacket. XD I’d love to own Apollo’s jacket just to have as an every day jacket.
Also, the Mr. Hat keychain would be fun to make. XD
And because I did nothing for Jean’s birthday -shieldself- Let’s just assume that I drew Nico for him and his birthday this time. -sweat excessively-

"We praise people for being “naturally” smart, too, “naturally” athletic, and etc. But studies continue to show, as they have for some time now, that it is generally healthier to praise schoolchildren for being hardworking, than for being naturally gifted. We know now that to emphasize a child’s inherent ability places pressure on that child to continue to be accidentally talented, which is something that is hard for anyone to control. When the children who are applauded for their natural skills fail, they are shown to take the failure very personally. After all, the process of their success has always seemed mysterious and basic and inseparable from the rest of their identity, so it must be they who are failing as whole people. When students are instead complimented and rewarded for their effort and improvement, they tend to not be so hard on themselves. When they fail, they reason, “Well, I’ll work harder next time.” They learn that they are capable of success, rather than constantly automatically deserving of it, and they learn simultaneously that they are bigger and more complex than their individual successes or failures."

I lost whole years of my life to self-loathing and self-sabotaging because I couldn’t sustain being ‘gifted’. Don’t make the same mistake.
Of course they know.
People really need to read the article because Mark Ruffalo’s response was amazing.
He did not ridicule the fans for their slash art. He didn’t say they were gross. He instead GOT EXCITED and praised them for being so creative and taking the characters to heart and running with them.
Also, ugh those fucking two they are so cute
