So, @kapeluszniczka and I passed our exams and decided to celebrate it with an update of our lame Valentine’s Card!

Enjoy ((Graphic design is our passion: the sequel))

My very first redraw, and it’s of beautiful Keith.

I hope you like it

If you like my work please check out more of it on this blog. I have a couple other voltron arts posted.

i really like hearing you be bitter about comics bc its. hard for me to get into them so it's like? bypassing all the bs and just quietly not really not knowing whats going on and going "well that sounds really cool gad dang" bc that sounds like the typical experience with none of the heartbreak

it’s funny because i’m always warning people that i don’t really read many comics and i’m actually a terrible comics fan who doesn’t know shit about shit, but then someone (by someone i mean @elvensemi) will say something about the x-men and i’ll go on a tear for like an hour summarizing five years of comics in order to explain why gambit successfully seducing an energy being who used to work at a gas station is simultaneously hilarious and completely unnecessary because he never should have been dropped in the arctic to die in the first place

“i don’t actually read that many comics, idk if i’d call myself a comics fan per se” - me, the person whose grandpa owned a comic shop, who read through at least ten boxes worth of comics in middle school and has over a thousand comics on comixology and has written 200k of comic fanfic

  • flash writers: barry talks to killer frost and turns her back into caitlin because she won't kill him
  • me: nnnnono nooooo.... that should have been cisco... but i mean, since she was already mad at Barry anyway and he was taking the blame and since he's her friend i'll allow it.
  • flash writers: caitlin is losing grip again and harry potter boy talks her off the edge even tho cisco should have been able to do that.
  • me: nooooooooooooooope. hahaha. wow seriously? I get they had a moment or two? But cisco is literally her best friend?
  • flash writers: okay so cailin is nearly dead. cisco is sobbing over her dying body. even though she is very clear about her wishes, harry potter boy ignores them (but saves her life so yay!). killer frost is unleashed like never before.
  • me: third???? time's???? a??? charm????????? *cries*

say you’re me and you’re in english class, supposedly analyzing lord of the flies but in actuality thinking about manga and how jarring isayama’s pacing is with snk. there’s of course, the fact that the clash of the titans arc takes place literally like a day or two before the female titan arc and pretty much everything happens in a flashback for some reason, then there’s the super-confusing mess that is the uprising arc with politics and some pretty fiiine character development that all happens in what’s probably less than 36 hours. 

and then, of course, there’s the return to shiganshina arc where they find out what’s in the basement after foreeever and then… an infodump??? for three chapters??? whyyyy!!

but of course if you really think about it, it makes perfect sense, in a kind of weird roundabout way that requires way too much thinking. but since this is english class of course you gotta analyze the story way too much in ways that the author likely never intended!

okay that was fun now onto actual meta or w/e. and, in case you guys didn’t pick it up from the introductory ramble, manga spoilers!!

  • we know that there’s only one family within the walls (besides grisha) who actually knows what goes on outside the walls: the reisses, the royal family. 
    • they’re the only ones able to actually access this power to remember all that happened pre-wall era at will, assuming they have the coordinate
    • there’s only one person with the coordinate power at a time within the walls, so that makes only one person inside (again, besides grisha because he literally comes from outside) who knows everything. 
      • AND they can’t tell anyone because it’s pretty overwhelming and terrible stuff
  • we know that the memories of the first king come are pretty overwhelming, completely taking over the holder of the coordinate for short spans of time

(i spent way too long looking for that screenshot but you know what it was fun refreshing my memory)

  • the memories of the outside world probably come rushing to the holder the second they become the new shifter in what’s probably a bunch of flashbacks, and when they come to literally minutes or less later, they’re completely different now that they have all this scary knowledge

(context for those who don’t mind spoilers or have forgotten details: historia’s father’s brother has just acquired the coordinate and is now more or less he god of the walled world. he knows.)

  • which brings me back to what i was originally harping on about: the point of the infodump on what’s going on outside the walls.
    • the reader is blind to all the truths and hidden secrets of the manga, just as everyone within the wall is blind to what happens beyond the titans and outside the walls.
    • and then, all of a sudden, we hit this huge milestone that’s been hyped up for literally 84 chapters, and we’re blown away with all. this. info. in such a short span of time. the meta writers went bonkers and everyone was kind of just screaming with their heads lit on fire.
      • that’s probably how all the reisses who inherited the coordinate felt when they first felt getting all this information

IN CONCLUSION: the way that the info dump was set up might have been intentional, paralleling how both the character’s felt at the time with this sudden heap of new information, and how most of the coordinate holders felt when they first learned everything.

i’m not saying it’s good writing. in my opinion, it was kind of lazy to just “hey kids we’re at this super hyped up, legendary basement have three months of screeching about now knowing everything whoop now there’s different problems yup”. but when overanalyzing it, it makes for a perfect mirror into how the characters themselves are feeling.

Imagine if Yusaku is always tired and hungry because he stays up really late planning the many details of his revenge plan. And he rarely realizes just how tired and hungry he is because he’s so busy planning and hacking stuff that he forgets to eat and sleep most of the time.

His main source of nourishment is Shoichi’s hotdogs, since he broods with Shoichi often and he always makes sure he eats at least one hotdog while he’s there. Shoichi is very concerned about Yusaku’s health.

And since Yusaku barely sleeps at night, he can be found passed out pretty much anywhere at completely random intervals. In the cafeteria? He’s snoozing. At a park? Sleeping on a bench. At home? On the floor, probably. At Shoichi’s hotdog stand? Completely crashes after a straight hour of brooding and hotdogs.

…Yeah, Shoichi is VERY concerned.

Hey it’s xmas month, that means only one thing.

Finals are over with! also xmas.

And what better way to celebrate than by drawing some good ole narcissistic self shipping.

CPAU was loving made by @loverofpiggies

Gaster Sans was made by @borurou

I think both Underfell and Underswap are fandom made and don’t necessarily belong to anyone

Reaper sans I know belongs to @renrink

Ugh. One of my least favourite tropes in fiction is Good Guy Gaslighting. 

You know the drill. Heroic Main Character is part of some Underground World (hidden society of vampires/clones/faerie etc) that needs to be kept Top Secret.

Then oblivious Side Character (most often love interest), who is kept in the dark for Their Own Safety starts to catch glimpses of the Secret World. Maybe they see someone survive an attack that should have killed them, maybe they see someone do magic. Whatever it is, they freak out, and go to The Main Character to tell them this crazy thing they’ve seen.

And of course, of course, the Main Character who Knows Best and is doing it For Their Own Safety, assures them that they were seeing things, and totally mistaken, and it’s OK, they’re not crazy, but maybe they just need to take it easy?

And so it continues for however many episodes the writers decide to drag out the ‘let’s watch this character believe they’re going mad as the main character deliberately encourage that perception for their own ends’.

I just hate it so much because it is, at the core of it, gaslighting. It’s deliberate, cruel gaslighting but because it’s done For Their Own Safety by the Heroic Main Character, it’s never condemned and is regularly used as a plot device.
