but-its-okay-he-was-there

just some commentary on the situation:

1. yes, i do think this is something to be upset about. its always been something to be upset about. i know that there’s clarification of the meaning/intent behind the translation that i think has sparked a lot of this discourse, but to me that doesn’t erase the connotations of another ill-mannered joke, one of very many that have been made. this isn’t a new thing, this isn’t an isolated incident, this has been happening since day one of the group’s existence. it’s a pattern. i understand the cultural difference but i don’t think that changes the fact that the comments and jokes that they make are very, very hurtful, and very, very wrong in many ways, and i’m angry and disappointed and upset that this is continual, repetitive behavior.

2. this isn’t something we should just handwave away, or try to justify by saying ‘but they’re friends/but they love him/but he says the same kinds of things.’ i really, seriously don’t think that’s the point here — the fact of the matter is that these are shitty colorist remarks they’re making. whether they mean it in jest or in a ‘good natured’ way or not doesn’t matter because they shouldn’t be saying these things in the first place because they’re wrong. and i think we’ve all noticed by now that hakyeon is not nearly as comfortable or easy-going about any of this as some of us like to believe he is. this is an issue. it’s something to be aware of and something we should be talking about; it affects very many people. no one is saying you automatically have to hate every group member that isn’t hakyeon, and no one is literally saying hakyeon is a saint and a bastion of purity, but we shouldn’t be reaching to justify these comments or behaviors, we should be recognizing how and why they’re wrong. good people are still perfectly capable of saying bad things. 

3. that still doesn’t make it okay to start attacking the other members and leaving them harmful and threatening messages in return. there is a way to go about letting them know that the things that they say are wrong, and it isn’t through threats and violence. directly contacting them on twitter, trying to write to the company itself, and taking steps to raise awareness are, i think, the best that we can do. combating this issue through harmful means solves absolutely nothing, but we shouldn’t DO nothing.

4. that being said, if people are uncomfortable and upset to the point that they choose to stop supporting the group and feel better leaving the fandom, LET THEM. i understand where they’re coming from. there is only so much a person can take before it’s too much. that is their decision, it’s not up to any of us to tell them whether or not it’s a good one to make.

reblogged your photoset

“you are the music while the music lasts”

turns out i’m one of those people who over-analyze things once they’ve posted them…i love that quote, but i’m just now realizing why it works so well/why i was drawn to use it for this gif set - noel is julian’s music here. look at him - you’d never know julian was in a club/at an after party if you just saw a still of him leaning against that wall. he only moves, only smiles, only laughs when noel moves closer and chats with him, that’s when he hears the music. and the music doesn’t last - noel does coax him out, and he can hear a different sort of music when he’s closer to julian as well, but eventually he goes back to what’s drowning that out and gets lost in it once more…and julian goes back to leaning against the wall, til the music plays again

Fun Fact: that vine everyone is reblogging is made by a rapist who got away with it. If you don’t want to support someone who continues to be sexist garbage while the victim continues to face a ton of shit I suggest you delete your post.

Ahahaha I feel like I kind of copped out because I’ve been getting asked for Potter!Punks for ages, and never really was able to draw something I was satisfied with and now these are only busts instead of full bodies. OOPS. Sorry. Maybe one day I’ll do full body images, because I have about a million more tattoo ideas.

makoharu + otp tags

so i was talking makoharu headcanons on twitter:

makoto would go to all of haru’s swim tournaments

of course when haru gets out the pool the first person he looks for is makoto

and then my comrade pops up and adds this gem:

HARU EMERGING OUT OF THE WATER AND SEARCHING FOR MAKOTO IN THE CROWD, ONLY SMILING WHEN HE SEES HIM

when he wins, he smiles a little but looks a little dazed. It’s only when he sees Makoto smiling happily and proudly at him that he smiles wider and he’s smiling cause he won and cause Makoto is there looking at him

and i was like (clutches chest in pain) I HAVE TO DRAW SOMETHING LIKE THIS

Never ending list of favorite scenes  (Swan Song)

↳ It's okay, Dean.
Seconds before throwing himself into the pit to save the world, he tries to comfort his brother, seconds before eternity of torture; the only thing he can think of is Dean. 

Hussie comment from Homestuck Book 3:

"In round two of Dave’s strife, he tries to escape from the relentless puppet pummeling, but bro slashes the ABSCOND command, just like he sliced all the other battle commands in round one. The message is clear. Dave can’t escape until he has been dealt the requisite daily helping of domestic abuse, wait I mean ninja training. What did I say there? Nothing. It was nothing. Homestuck is a lighthearted and funny cartoon dealing in highly abstract and stylized household situations, and nothing about it shall evoke the gritty realities experienced every day by real life victims of abuse. Now let’s watch this 30-something year old man pound the daylights out of his adopted 13 year old brother and biological son."

HMMMMMMMMM
