*sometimes i make stuff

Every once in a while I remember that a creature with tusks that visibly protrude from its mouth would probably have some decent trouble speaking, at least in some languages, because they might not be able to make all the mouth shapes or closed consonants like m or p or b.

So like I’ve mentioned before that Kesk probably has some trouble with Common (not like trouble trouble, but like they can’t make all the sounds so some words sound off)

But also, to a lesser degree because his tusks are much smaller, Sal would probably have some trouble too.

Dedicated to the one and only @katsuukis who never fails to surprise me, and whose giffing style inspired me to try something new.

This gifset prompted by a cool bit of meta by @sammyhale that I saw on my dash this morning. To clarify: I don’t think Dean was fair to blame Mary for not being around during his childhood. She died. I also don’t think that Sam needs to be thinking of Dean in order to be justified in wanting something different for his life. But I do think that this mystical goal, a “normal life”, is something Dean has wanted as well as Sam - think about him so happy mowing the lawn in ‘What is and What Should Never Be’, think about his dream of picnic-blanket Lisa in 'Dream a Little Dream of Me’. The problem living with Lisa wasn’t that he didn’t like the life, it was that he missed Sam. And I think Sam’s vision of Dean eating BBQ in peace is a lot more positive than the picture that Ketch was painting with his 'you and me, Dean, we’re both killers’; the idea that hunting is something Dean needs because he’s this bloodlust-driven brute who never could or will be anything else.

unpopular opinion time but the rhetoric painting all men as abusive and/or disgusting was a major factor in keeping me in the closet for years after i knew i was a trans man, because i was living in fear that the second i accepted my manhood, i would become that abusive and disgusting person.

there’s a big difference between separating cis and trans men because cis men are “real men” and trans men are “other” and recognizing that trans men have a different relationship with manhood and masculinity than cis men when they’re younger, closeted, and later pre-transition (or if they choose not to transition). ignoring the fact that trans men were raised differently than cis men ignores reality. we were force-fed the same misogyny as women, and despite the fact that it was misdirected that still affects us. i have many “feminine” mannerisms left over from before i realized i was trans, and later, when i was masquerading as female due to the constraints of my environment.

this isn’t to say that trans men will always experience misdirected misogyny or that this makes us “lesser men”, but when making blanket statements about men it’s important to remember that not all men are cishet white men. it’s not radical to call black men abusive or rapists; it’s perpetuating a dangerous stereotype. in the same way, these statements tell trans men that their experiences are identical to that of cis men, when that’s a ridiculous claim. we have different experiences, and they’re both the experiences of men, but they still have profound effects on who we are and how we interact with masculinity.

the trans male community suffers from a misogyny problem just like any other male community, and exempting us from rhetoric regarding misogyny is wrong. however, there’s a way to do it without forcing us deeper into the closet with toxicity. the male experience is varied, and men can be privileged as men and oppressed in other aspects. stop acting like the male experience is exclusive to those that are in the most privileged of positions.

’We sort of look alike,’ Russell points out, and says their disguises are often planned that way so that, undercover, the characters will look as if they should be together.

What are some of the mindless things you say to your dog(s) just cus

Mine include:
“I know! You’re so special! I know!”
“You go sniff snorf with your snoot snoot!”
“Look at you, so handsome!”
“Big boy! Big big boy.”
“Mister!”

abby-6-stuff  asked:

Since you love cardcaptor sakura, do you see any similarities between Sakura and Syaoran, and Marinette and Adrien?

yes

YES

A LOT

I have actually made a draw paralelling the umbrella scene with them (oh god that old art xD) 

like cmon, Nadeshiko, Sakura’s mom has 17 when she met Fujitaka, Sakura’s dad, and wow how coincidentally that Adrien has a mother, who was also a model! which photo  he has at age of 17!!!

she is teaching her son to play the pieano LIKE WTF ABOUT PARALLELISM ASLKDJAKSLJ

But like, Fujitaka is actually what Gabriel SHOULD BE AS A FATHER ARE YOU LISTENING GABRIEL.

And like, Plagg is basically the fusion of Kero and Suppi???!!!

Tomoyo is like Alya, cause she is the best friend of the protagonist and most of the time voice of reason and who also finds the time to film everything no matter how risky cause she must to

(and who also has a crush on her friend. Fite me, Alya has an obvious crush on Mari. Pre and post Animan)

Sonomi and Nathalie? I mean we still dont know what Nathalie felt/feels for Mama Agreste but she will do anything for Adrien, same what Sonomi does for Sakura. Even if that means accepting the father in this (altho Fujitaka is a good man and Sonomi was just jealous. Nathalie, on the other side, has to deal with Gabriel bs, but she will do it for Adrien)

And this is just speaking of the characters cause if i start talking about the cards and the akumas…

mirror

illusion

(cant find the picture of ladybug screaming for adrien, but you get me)

time

actually more than one card can apply here, time and return, but it involves time travel like timebraker

obviously Miraculous is more superhero like, so there other stuff that would not fit. But there are obvious parallels between the shows (not only for the obvious tropes).

But the world has changed, the future is uncertain.
And in the opinion of this humble reposter,
before things get better,
              they’re going to get a lot worse.
