i swear to fucking god if i read the words “katara is forced to marry zuko to keep the peace between the nations!!!” in a zutara fanfic summary one more fucking time i will shove a very dull spork into my right eyeball
ahhh, um. well. after i’m finished with my edit, i merge all the layers. then i duplicate the base layer and set it to soft light, 50% opacity, and use gaussian blur with a radius between 3-8 pixels. then i merge layers and duplicate the base again, lower the opacity to 10% and leave the layer setting at normal. then i use gaussian blur again, this time with a radius around 30 pixels.
hopefully that helped? i’m not really good with explaining these things, plus i use different gaussian blur/soft light settings for every edit, so…
"I posted chapters four and five together because I wanted to hurry up and get to the sexytimes!"
Oookay but they broke up in chapter three so thanks for spoiling your fic for me, asshole
