People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. ”

It’s kinda funny that MakoHaru has been my new OTP (I had another OTP for literally the LONGEST TIME and MakoHaru has been the only ship to have knocked it off its throne ever lol) ever since the first season of Free! and I had never actually drawn them kissing.

Glad I FINALLY remedied that. 

Inspired by a multitude of things, but I liked to give special credit to Kyoani for the most recent episode that featured a beautiful shot of a golden/sunset-orange pool.

Americans define racism as individual, overt and intentional. But modern forms of racial discrimination are often unintentional, systemic and hidden. The tropes and images of the civil rights era reinforce the old definition. People taking on new forms constantly look for our own Bull Connor to make the case. We can find these kinds of figures. But there’s inevitably debate about whether they truly hit the Bull Connor standard, as we can see in popular defenses of Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Gov. Rick Scott. Politicians, employers and public administrators have all learned to use codes for the groups they target. The notion that all racism is intentional and overt is a fundamental building block of the false solution of colorblindness.

My computer crashed while I was sketching a Mephi doodle for a sketchdump and I was stumped since I didn’t save anything on that, so I

Decided to make a .GIF? I dunno, I saw this edit while snooping around for new w2h fanart and I remembered my old talk sprites back in the MB days.

It’s kinda wonky and it’s not so ‘spazzaz’ or whatnot, but it’s something.

Stacker Pentecost: Today. Today… At the edge of our hope, at the end of our time, we have chosen not only to believe in ourselves, but in each other. Today there is not a man nor woman in here that shall stand alone. Not today. Today we face the monsters that are at our door and bring the fight to them. Today, we are cancelling the apocalypse!
