'i'd better love it'

Trying to figure out if you’re ace or aro can be so goddamn hard because it’s like, trying to find the absence of something. Imagine you’re at a pond and you want to know if there are any turtles, or fish. Say you find a turtle and you’re like “great! Now I know there are turtles.” Or a fish, now you know for sure there are fish. Or you find both, and now you know for a fact there are both turtles and fish in the pond.

But like, if you don’t find any turtles it might be that there are no turtles or maybe you’re just really shitty at looking for turtles and maybe you THINK you saw a turtle over there or maybe it was just a stick. Maybe there are only a few turtles. Maybe you need to do something special to find the turtles. Maybe a bunch of these rocks are actually turtles but you couldn’t tell them apart. Maybe there are no turtles. You have no idea. Meanwhile some people are saying “Oh there have to be turtles! You’ll find them eventually ;)” or “How many turtles have you found in your pond?” or “Try planting some vegetables at the shore to attract the turtles.” Or “Oh no! What disaster happened to your pond that there are no turtles?” And you’re just standing there wet with an empty net and a tired expression.

But whatever because whether there are turtles or fish or not your pond’s ecology works just fine without them because that’s what eco-communities do they form a system around what they have. You aren’t missing anything if you don’t have turtles you just have a pond system without turtles. If someone tried to change you by pouring a bunch of turtles into your pond it would probably fuck something up.

So you don’t have to be entirely sure. You don’t have to search every inch of the damn pond before you can decide there are probably no turtles. If you want to take the aro or ace label because you think it fits go for it. And if you do find your turtles you can rename the pond. That’s fine.

A question for everyone!

By far the most frequent request I’ve had is giant Boxfoxes! I’ve always said that I’d love to but can’t because of storage and shipping issues… BUT! My circumstances have recently changed so that I COULD store and ship large Boxfox plush if people really want them. It’d be a bit of an undertaking but I could do it!

I’m costing it all out now and ideally I’d run a Kickstarter to fund a run of 8-12″ Boxfox plush for hoooopefully around $50 each. Please sound off if you’d genuinely be interested! I’d love to do it!


Okay but listen, please, because Magnus calling Alec “shadowhunter” in that voice with all that affection, looking at him like that, was hot af but please fandom do not try to make it a thing that can go both ways. Because no matter how much Alec comes to love and respect Magnus, calling him “warlock” will never be an affectionate thing. There’s way too much racist weight to the way shadowhunters call downworlders by their specific race as if that’s all that defines them. And it’s just never going to be cute. Besides Alec really does love and respect Magnus too much to try to use that as any kind of pet name. He’s seen Magnus’ face when other people do it. He just wouldn’t.

He thinks about Kit, some kind of warped, ruined saint with all her broken morals and shades of grey, surrounded by all of her foolish righteous holier-than-thou comrades, whiter than white, and he swallows heavily, because finally he understands what she meant. He doesn’t understand you like I do though, does he? he thinks, but she turns her back before he gets the chance to say it out loud.

(also: if you want to download any of my covers, just send me a message or an ask n i’ll give you a link!!) 

i know i’m here for lgbt representation but like, straight people deserve better writing too.  don’t straight shippers with het-headcanons want better romance than the crap they get?  don’t you guys deserve better than 50 shades of abuse and the sitcom garbage that is shrill nag berates lazy fat guy?  shit, lgbt people have our own problems with media, but straights should be salty too.

Considering my recent coming out as a transboy I was wondering if you guys could help me pick out a name by giving me some ideas based on what I look like (selfies are linked in bio)

“You’re on your own
Such a damn shame
I’d have to break it to you

You’re all alone
You oughta just stay quiet
You can’t do that can you?

Parading like you own the place
But give it time we’ll all forget your face

You’re on your own
Such a damn shame
No one’s ever coming for you”

i keep saying i want to write for dc but when it comes to ya know actually thinking of plots besides “this character comes out as bi/pan and gets a cute gf/bf” it’s like… hmmmmm…. maybe they’ll fight a bad guy or maybe.. they’ll just save a cat out of a tree. or hang out at the local animal shelter and stroke all the cats and dogs. how do you like that? check and mate.

An anti has a blog ''things better than sheith'' and one of their posts which shows up when you search sheith is that clinical depression is better than sheith... And as a clinically depressed person I'd love to fight op. Fuck them, clinical depression isn't better than anything...

This is so gross antis are so gross with this like they act as though they’re doing what they do to protect CSA survivors etc but then make fun of serious mental illness like depression like yeah seems legit

there’s a blasphemous lack of Nikolina fanart, so I did this :3 it’s probably my fave most romantic moment in the whole trilogy okay? *w* (s6|RB)

I wanted to draw more fanart for In the Sin Bin, the best Malec AU fanfic ever, by the incredibly awesome @otppurefuckingmagic. Honestly I would write a love letter but words aren’t enough, and I express myself better with colors and lines anyway. So… <3
