I think it's from that anyway

so this show im watching with my mom (emerald city i think) has, in the twenty minutes ive watched, had a trans* character, a disabled character, and multiple woc. and the disabled character looks to have a love interest who is able bodied. so idk how legit the show is but from what ive seen its pretty cool.

My last bf actually got jealous that at the time I was into male Jazz/60s musicians. He would start making comments about me being obsessed with those men and that he was worried I would leave him. It was ridiculous thinking I would leave him for dead musicians! I ended up leaving him anyways cause no way was I going to deal with that kinda mess, also he called me heartless when he found out I was ace xD I agree its confusing how people will correlate liking celebs with wanting to bang them >8T

thats so weird like! they were dead??? they aint gonna steal you away lmao. im glad you got away from that all tho, no one needs that kind of worry in their life

The prized Middle Eastern street fare were originally made of fava beans, and later with chickpeas, and it has gained international recognition for its wholesome, vegan ingredients.

I thought it was popular because a) immigration and b) it frickin’ tastes good, but carry on, I guess.

By omitting the deep frying step and opting to bake instead,

What is this, a diet recipe site? Did I go to great lengths to get a bunch of diagnostic information saying I have no heart or cholesterol problems just to refrain from eating food that tastes good anyway?

I’ve experimented countless times with homemade falafel recipes, and I have to say, I think I prefer the red lentil version.

BLOCKED

(if I end up making this anyway, joke is on me)

How did you and Santino find each other? I love collaborative writing but I fell out with my previous partner and it's been pretty much impossible to find other people interested in it who also like writing the same genres. Any tips?

I think part of it is kind of random luck tbh. I’ve done collabs with… let’s see. Mostly 2 main people–Santino and a friend of mine from my early OP fanfic days. (Where are you Quatrina I miss you T_T) But I feel like I also have collabed with other people on other things?? Why am I totally spacing out on the entirety of my life right now omg I’m sorry to others I am forgetting :( It’s been a pretty distracting couple of months for me.

Anyway like with Quatrina, I met Santino through fandom lolz We were both in Gundam Wing fandom back then. There’s a longer tl;dr answer on the specifics of how we met here: http://www.aisylum.com/sonnyais/about.html  (our old About Us page) and here: https://aisness.wordpress.com/2013/11/09/qafaq-co-writing-for-a-decade/ (a Q&A we did specifically about cowriting for a decade so that probably would be good for you to read for other thoughts, maybe?)

Rose Quartz’s reason for Steven

Now that ‘Storm in the Room’ has come and gone, I want to remind you of a line of dialogue from a very old episode.

Steven says this about Amethyst, which turns out to be true. We still see signs of it in the Amethyst arc where she pours herself into defeating Jasper. But I think this line is true for all quartzes.

Amethyst doesn’t wanna think about herself. She hates herself. It’s a miserable thing to think about. You can see the stark contrast with the Famethyst; they all have eachother to think about, which is why they’re so happy.

Jasper doesn’t wanna think about herself. Although she is full of herself, she’d rather be a part of anyone else. First Lapis, and then corrupted quartzes, if that’s what it takes.

Steven doesn’t wanna think about himself. He doesn’t wanna think about the expectations riding on him and all the horrible things he’s done and been through. He’d rather think about everyone else and what he can do for them.

And Rose was the same way. She didn’t wanna think about herself. She was always asking everyone else about themselves. Whenever she’s asked about herself, she either evades it entirely or delays it as long as possible. She dedicated herself to – quite literally – everyone else. Both the Crystal Gems, and the entire human race.

But it backfired. The rebellion caused a war, the war caused the destruction of so many gems (and maybe even humans), caused her to bubble Bismuth and shatter Pink Diamond, and who knows how many other awful, dreadful things.

She didn’t want that anymore. But she couldn’t escape it. She couldn’t just run away from it. But she couldn’t just NOT think about it.

Everyone around her was so unique, so full of life, so free of burdens … and she wanted that.

Rose Quartz wanted to be anyone other than herself.

She didn’t make Steven to escape her mistakes. She made him because she thought so little of herself. Because she knew, anyone in the world would be a better fit as the leader of the Crystal Gems than her.

She wanted to live life as someone who would know what to do. Someone who could be strong. Someone who could make the right decisions. Someone who could create good where all she created was bad. Someone that could set out to do what she never could; to save everyone. Someone that could be everything she wasn’t.

She can’t give Steven the answers because …

Steven is the answer.

“Everyone thinks we’re dating.” Simon randomly announced in the middle of of his and Jace’s second weekly movie nights.

Jace hit the pause button on the remote and gave Simon a quizzical look. “And?”

“That doesn’t bother you?”

“No?”

Simon stared at Jace. “It doesn’t?”

“Why would it?” Jace asked, raising an eyebrow. “I mean… aren’t we?”

“What?” 

“Aren’t we dating?” Jace repeated. “I mean, this is a date, right?”

[insert your own joke about a longstanding merger]

It’s St. Lucia’s day today! :D

Not many people celebrate St. Lucia (or St. Lucy), and I personally love it, so I thought I’d make some Lucia themed ot4 art :)

Don’t focus on what has been lost. Focus on what’s been gained in the absence of what once was.

so the year seems to be coming to an end and i’ve seen a few people do these already so!!

pretty odd + subtitles

tbh something that annoys me a lot about how Batman is portrayed is that you can do so many interesting things with him visullay, with how he moves with his cape, hides with it and behind it and uses it to glide through the night, and what would work best for that would be a lean physique yet most of the time he’s envisioned as this bulky af dude who just happens to be wearing a cape

this works really well visually 

and yet most of the time we get this

like why is he as bulky as Superman?? how is that interesting??? how does that tell us anything about the characters???? it doesn’t, it’s just strict adherence to hypermasculinity and it frustrates me 

Batman is fucking sneaky, he hides, he’s quiet, he makes damn sure he has the jump on someone before he attacks - he’s not a bruiser he’s a fucking rogue okay. leaving him behind his cape tells us that much better than giving him an eight pack

like take these pictures

they’re doing something interesting with the cape, but to me the emphasis on his muscles really distracts from what could be something that worked quite well if rendered more simply. the constant emphasis on him being big and muscular detracts from an otherwise interesting visual design. 

this isn’t about any one installment being better than another, i’m still not a fan of the body type they chose for him in B:TAS and I do think the Arkham games portrays the cape gliding well, my only point is that I’m so tired of seeing him drawn with hypermasculinity as the main goal instead of with visual storytelling in mind.
