Anonymous asked: What's your opinion on Seventeen's announced profession? I think his personality works better with being a mechanic, or a pizza boy. Park ranger sounds more like Android Sixteen.

actually, i think park ranger is exactly the right sort of thing for him to be doing, and here’s why:

we see that even after they’re let loose onto the world, none of the trio actually directly initiate conflict. the closest they came to that was stealing the van, and even then they mostly ignored the drivers at the rest stop. from there, every instance of fighting they got into where harm came to people was due to an odd sense of “self defense” if you will. the biker gang that chased them down had the intent to harm them first, and they reacted accordingly. the police officers who tried to arrest them only had their car blown up, and the officers who chased them weren’t killed, just incredibly startled when 18 split their car in half. even during 18’s fight with Vegeta, our dear Prince of All (3) Saiyans did far more damage than 18 did, and 17 only stepped in after the z senshi got involved, and even that was after an incredibly clear and fair warning.

what this has always told me when i noticed the pattern was that neither of the twins are particularly violent by nature, even after being brainwashed and tortured by Gero to be exactly that. they’re teenagers who’ve just come out of incredible trauma, and are trying to figure out what to do with themselves now that they don’t feel like they have a past to return to, or a future to chase.

so given those circumstances, a lot of the decisions they made were incredibly on-the-spot. everything they did once they escaped was for and in the moment, and that sort of thinking is exactly the kind of reflexive personality that is well suited to jobs that require being more hands on and confrontational. after 17 was beaten by cell, his already fragile and terrified sense of self was effectively completely broken. he had nothing to front for anymore, and i think in a lot of ways, it mellowed him out (as desperately sad as the method was ;m;). so now he still has that split-second wit to deal with, but none of the ego, and i’d like to think that 17 eventually settled into whatever mountain town he got the job in while looking for his sister. as it happened, he got the job, (and apparently a wife and munchkins but that’s a squeally elated ramble for later) and it seemed to bring some of that confidence back. while i will never ever accept GT as canon, and buu saga is pretty dubious, i will say that toriyama’s latest Q&A was not the first time we’ve heard of 17’s career choice, as there is a scene where we see him holding two men (presumably poachers) at gunpoint. so it’s not like this was something that happened on the fly because a question was asked about it.

anyway, long answer to basically say i think being able to enjoy his life for once gives him a lot of room for growth and personal adventure, which is perfectly in line with ranger work, besides being hilariously ironic that he is effectively a police officer now. as for pizza delivery and mechanics, i think if he were to take on a job that so intrinsically required being pleasant with other people on the regular, he’d need to learn how to communicate without being a total brat first.

Filed under there was a lot more i wanted to say on the subject but the answer was too long as it is lol i take my babies very seriously Anonymous

this thing got progressively more terrifying to work with as i completed it, especially the face. it’s like a sugary, strawberry shortcake nightmare version of what i’m like on caffeine, so i mean, i guess in a way that makes me terrifying. hm.
well anyhow, have a thing. also reminder that i am doing commissions!! (two kinds~!)

i’m in a really scary tight spot with cash right now and have some pretty hefty loans to pay. until i can find a steady job, i need help! so if you guys want some art for cheap, i’m your gal~
i will draw pretty much anything (and i do mean anything) so long as you aren’t like “yes hello i am underage and asking for gore/porn” lol. i will just assume you are of age for whatever it is you’re commissioning.
ADDITIONAL INFO:
-each extra figure in the same image will be $5 more (so two figures will be $15)-if you want furries, i can attempt, but am not well-versed in the way of anthro-please provide references for whomever/whatever it is you’d like-extra items/backgrounds will be $3 added to the cost of the figures (unless it is part of the character design, i.e., i will not charge for Trunks’s sword, but will charge for him summoning the dragon)
i’ll take 5 slots to start, and if they’re successful, i will continue down the waiting list in more batches of five. you will be informed what number you are on the list with a time estimate for when your commission will be started/finished.
if you all could do me a favor and reblog this even if you don’t/can’t buy i would be especially grateful ;w;

please for all that is good and holy in this world fullview this—there are some fabulous expressions and tiny writing to be seen.
so Trunks and 17 have been together for a year, and in this time 17 has trained himself to “sleep” through the night every so often. He and his sister don’t get physically tired, but being awake all the time is exhausting to the brain and they will rest by going basically catatonic for a few hours at a time on about a 20 hour schedule. 17 used to take these moments against Trunks whenever they’d hit, listening to his heartbeat or something until he came out of it, but eventually found it more convenient to coordinate his “offline” time with Trunks’s sleeping hours. getting into this routine makes waking up harder however, and usually leaves him groggy, so when future!Trunks shows up to see how things have progressed in the past, shenanigans ensue.

Filed under Trunks 17 android 17 bulma mirai trunks dbz sev's bedhead is a goddamned work of art alternatively titled 'too damn early for this shit' and all this because i can never resisit drawing his resting bitch face of course he's not actually mad or anything just very tired and confused also poor bulma it'd be one thing if this was early on in 17 and b!Trunks's relationship where they were only tentatively dating but now she has to explain how close they actually are hint: the shirt 17's wearing isn't his you can also see the exact moment i stopped caring about quality

Kendryk (by keli) and Flint (by me). some Jak’n’Dax OCs for a really dorky RP we’ve got going on. fun times are had.

if you want to know about them, ask, because the bios are frankly too long well planned out to put here without stretching everyone’s dash~

also the one of flint is from a few months ago so please don’t mind the anatomical stupidity…..

(also jfc this is the best background/environment i think i’ve done EVER so please appreciate and don’t tell me about the mistakes cos i’m sure there are tons but i am refusing to care right now)
(alternatively titled “you’re so cute when you’re angry~”)
