Hello everyone! It’s my absolute pleasure to announce that this year’s Digimon OTP week is coming up with an AU centric theme! 

For any newcomers to the DigiOTPWeek, this is a tumblr event that is designed for fans to indulge themselves with their favorite ships from any and every Digimon season! It’s a simple event that tries to encourage everyone to create content for their favorite pairings. 

If you want an excuse to flood the tag with your favorite ship/dynamic, now is your chance! Any kind of pairing is accepted here. OTPs, Rare Pairs, Crack ships, even just family bonds and brotps. So long as it’s a part of the Digimon Series, all is welcome and accepted here! 

The Digimon OTP Week starts on August 14th and ends on August 28th. Each prompt is deliberately broad so that everyone can interpret it as they see fit. For example, with “Professions AU” you can translate that to Tattoo Artist and Florist AU, or with your pairing as office workers, or even a firefighter AU. There are no wrong answers here, so feel free to have fun with it!

Thank you everyone for your continued support and enthusiasm for this event. I hope to see everyone else enjoy this year’s DigiOTP Week! 

(For further information such as detailed Rules/FAQ, a full list of Prompts and other information, please check the links on the top of the home page.) 

On August 14th 2012 a four-year-old boy was rushed to hospital with severe abdominal pains and internal bleeding. The boy’s mother - who hospital staff identified as twenty-five-year old Jessica Dutro - told the emergency crash team that her son Zachary had fallen out of bed onto the hard wooden floor, and claimed his younger sister had kicked him a few times. As soon as Jessica Dutro was out of sight the E.R staff called the Portland police; Zachary had been the victim of a horrendous beating, and his mother was responsible for it.

While police caught up with Jessica, medical staff fought to save Zachary’s life; his intestines had split in two places, and feces had spread into his bloodstream causing a massive infection. Doctors also noted that Zachary’s upper lip had been partially torn off and his abdomen was covered in both fresh and partially healed bruises. Just hours after he had been admitted, Zachary Dutro died, from a combination of septic shock and internal injuries.

Jessica Dutro was immediately arrested and charged with child abuse resulting in murder. She confessed she beat Zachary because she was afraid he was gay; she had sent a text to an ex-boyfriend just a month before the fatal beating that said “he [Zachary] walks around like a fag. He needs to learn big time”. Jessica Dutro told police she snapped when Zachary insisted on taking his shoes off while he watched TV, and admitted to kicking him five times in the stomach, punching him into a wall, and tossing him onto the bed when he lost consciousness. The child lay on the bed for over thirty-six hours - in excruciating pain due to his split intestines - before his mother sought medical help.

Jessica Dutro was found guilty of killing her son and sentenced to life with the possibility of parole.

i am 11 and i am sat next to a british
girl in maths class,
she tells me about her ancestors who were miners going on strike
and protesting against their working
conditions and wages,
my jaw falls,
i am in awe of their bravery.

i am 12 and i understand now what
britain’s colonialism did to the
subcontinent,
i realise that they starved us,
forced us to speak english and beat
anyone who dared speak any of
the tongues belonging to their
mothers.

i am 15 and i realise that europe’s world famous museums house
exhibits created by my people,
a symbol of our strength, courage
and culture they exotified and expolited.

i am 15 and it dawns on me that her ancestors shot mine in amritsar in 1919.

i am 15 and it dawns on me that her ancestors slaughtered mine in peshawar in 1930.

i am 15 and it dawns on me that my culture is running out of my veins and that my heart is beating today because of the resilience of my people and that i share the blood of life with this land and that my brown-skinned ancestors were braver and stronger than that girl’s could ever dream of being.

Tarch’s Old Fanarts - Day 3
Title: My first character animation!
Date: 14th August 2013

Just shortly after I got my hands on the dragon models, I went wild with experimenting with them. This is one of the very first tests with the Toothless model and rig! ;) And this also happens to be my very first character animation. Ever. (I sure have come a long way since then, heheh ^^)
