VIRIA I LOVE YOU

The Percy Jackson fandom got me an A! and possibly a boyfriend

Okay, so this friday we were asked to give an oral presentation about a social phenomena and we had to bring a powerpoint presentation with info , images, videos and all that schist for my social studies class so being the hardcore fangirl I am, I decided to make my presentation about fandoms and I used as an example the PJO and HoO fandom. I brought some of Viria, Blurdge and Minuiko’s artwork, some of TheSibyllineBooks fanfictions (of course giving them all the credit) and many many many posts about feels. I also brought a dictonary to fangirl language in which I explained the meaning of things like “feels” and  ”I can’t even”, and I talked for about 10 minutes about how Rick Riordan was the greatest troll to walk on earth and the debate in the fandom if we should hug him and thank him for the books or just hit him with a hammer for every feel he broke. 

When I was finished everyone started clapping and the teacher even stood up and thanked me because now she finally understood what her daugther spent all of the hours she was locked up in her room doing and she gave me an A! But here comes the best part, this guy who I had a crush on since forever came up to me and told me that although what I talked about was pretty insane, it seemed pretty cool and, wait for it….HE ASKED ME OUT!

So I have to thank you PJO fandom you have made me a nervous wreck but you’ve also given me an A and a date which is much more than what the other fandoms have done for me, yes I’m looking at you Potterheads, Directioners, Nerdfighters, Mixers, Tributes, Shadowhunters…(they’re so many I could go on for centuries but I’ll drop it here). So to end this with class THE DEMIGODS RULE!!!!!!!!!!

Cyrus and Ari to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of my very FAVORITE people on the internet, viria!!!! We met right after you joined deviantart about four years ago (I can’t believe it’s been that long) and we’ve been friends since!!

You are an amazing person and artist and I love you more than I can say. I hope we stay friends for a long time and I hope you have a wonderful day! <3

New Haikyuu!! merchandise!!

They’re so cute! I’m so glad that there are ones for the minor characters as well. But alas, I had no need for a phone stand.

I’m still laughing at these Hinata and Kageyama crow dolls I found at the jump store though. They’re so ridiculous haha.

Nishinoya also gets his own manga panel handkerchief thing. I’m so proud.

TO EVERY ARTIST

hello Artist!

I just wanted to tell you that you are extremely loved

I love your art. There’s so much about it that I love.
The anatomy, the composition, the lighting, etc etc etc!
Like seriously, you have INSANE talent!! It makes me just-

But the main reason I love your art is because YOU do it. You are a phenomenal person. The fact that you continue to do art the way you want, persevere past bad drawing habits and continue to try new things is amazing. I want you to know that I can see you in your art.

I can see the struggles you have overcome and the goals you are trying to achieve and I will root for you no matter what you draw.
I love your art. You are absolutely stellar.

I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again.

Writing is hard. Really hard.

But at the end of the day, we’re just smushing together different combinations of the same 26 letters.

Art, on the other hand, is so incredibly original.

It’s just the artist and the medium.

I have so, so, so much respect for artists because:

  • I can’t do half the stuff they can do
  • Without them, I wouldn’t be shipping most of the stuff I ship
  • ART IS REALLY HARD

I’m a writer but I will always, always, always have a helluva lot of respect for artists.

You do your things, lovelies
