Important-Stuff

Ok so I’ve been seeing a ton of those ‘we need more representation at hogwarts’ posts and I was like hell why not more Jewish representation at Hogwarts (and like everywhere else but that’s another story). No like imagine though
  • parents calling/or I guess writing the school to make sure that their kids get a kosher meal option and that there’s a good Jewish presence
  • having Friday night and Saturday morning and Holiday services in the room of requirement
  • bar and bat mitzvahs would be fuckin epic like imagine having your bar or bat mitzvah in the Great Hall like hot damn people would talk about that for centuries like what was your bar/bat mitzvah theme? oh just REAL LIFE WIZARDING MAGIC
  • on a more depressing note learning about how Voldemort tried to wipe out anyone who wasn’t pureblood brings up too many Holocaust parallels and is actually extremely upsetting to many students/ many of the Jewish kids teach their non-muggleborn friends about the Holocaust when they ask why they’re getting so distraught
  • but on a lighter note Hannukah at Hogwarts would be fuckin awesome. like Slytherin students charming their dreidels so they can win every time, Hufflepuffs making everyone homemade gifts and shit, EVERYONE fucking making latkes bc those rule, also the kitchen elves being like wtf is a latke and the students being like prepare to have your mind fuckin blown
  • giving the Jewish students the day off on Yom Kippur bc like how the frick are you supposed to function come on (that should apply to every school not just magical ones let’s be honest here)
  • accidentally saying spells in Hebrew because if you grew up learning Hebrew and English it’s gonna slip out when speaking another foreign language (happens to me all the time in Spanish)
  • getting howlers from concerned mothers who just want you to call back or write back because they love you and they want to make sure you’re warm and well fed (but they remind you that the cooking will never be as good as their own, and your mom is probably right, you miss her brisket and kugel) and if you’re dating anyone make sure it’s a nice jewish boy/girl!
  • religious kids arguing over what kind of magic is okay to use on Shabbat and holidays
  • religious kids getting kippot that match their respective houses
  • religious kids davening in their common rooms each morning
  • having a succah in the courtyard on Succot, but it does the bigger on the inside thing like the tents at the Quidditch world cup, so on the outside it looks pretty small and humble but you get inside and it’s like decked the fuck out and there’s candy from honeydukes everywhere and it’s just amazing
  • dressing up on Halloween and Purim and giving shalach manot to their friends and professors
  • WHY CANT YOU EAT BREAD FOR THE WHOLE WEEK? This question comes up whether you’re in the wizarding world or not let’s face it.
  • HOGWARTS SEDERS. The great hall decorated for the Seder. those long ass Hogwarts tables decorated with like ten Seder plates because they are so long. Students staying up way past their bedtime because it’s the Seder and that’s just what you do. all the kids who were at the Seder just wiped out in classes the next day.
  • Jewish wizards charming matzah into actually tasting decent (what a thought)
  • Jewish wizards inviting their non Jewish friends to Seders and Friday night dinners
  • Introducing friends to the magical bread that is Challah and kids being like 'damn son I do magic all day every day but this is true magic’
  • Jewish wizard couples just because
  • Celebrating Israeli Independence Day at Hogwarts (that would be a dream come true holy moly) like cooking falafel and stuff with the kitchen elves that would be amazing
  • basically just send me to Hogwarts already

There are few important things I really want to talk about. Please reblog so everyone who’s in Eddsworld Fandom can see.

FIRST OF ALL, I just want to make sure people understands that what they are doing is wrong and how they are ruining the fandom. Here are some points I sorted out.

1. TomTord Fandom

I’m not judging the ship. I actually like Tomtord ㅡ they’re cute together. I ship them AS A FICITIONAL CHARACTER NOT A REAL PERSON?! WHAT THE HELL?!  HOW DARE YOU HARASS TOM AND TORD?! DON’T YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT THE WORD PRIVACY IS? YOU NEED TO FIGURE OUT WHAT’S REALITY AND WHAT’S NOT. BECAUSE OF YOU GUYS, TORD LEFT. BECAUSE OF YOU GUYS, NOW TOM IS GONE TOO. PLEASE PLEASE, PLEASE GROW UP AND BE MATURE.

And now for the people who hates the ship. Look, I get it ㅡ you guys probably don’t know why people ship them because they clearly hate each other but look. There’s a thing called “hate ship”. You pair two characters who hate each other. Basically every fandom has one so you need to get over with it. Don’t tell tomtord shippers weird or don’t just swear at them. Nobody’s the same so you should respect what others like or ship.

2. Shipwars

Oh god where do we start… Everyone has their own OTP and you should respect others. People can ship whatever they want if it’s fictional! Please don’t say this ship is better than the other. That’s only your opinion. Everyone can’t be the same. If you keep saying them aloud you’ll bring hatred over some people. DON’T.

3. Forced Shipping

For all eddsworld askblogs ㅡ this message goes to you. Except for the blogs that’s about specific ships. (EX. Ask toredd! Ask tomtord!) That way people knows what ships they have so who hates it can easily avoid it.

There might be some people who are very uncomfortable with the ship you guys are including on the blog. Especially in the au blog. People there are following the blog because they’re interested in the plot and the story line the au follows. Well, maybe some ships but you shouldn’t put that in the middle.

4. Using arts without credit

THIS IS THE HUGE PROBLEM. I SEE MANY PEOPLE USING MY ARTWORKS, AND MY FRIENDS’. THEY NEVER CREDIT US, OR NEVER EVER ASKED US. PLEASE ASK THE ORIGINAL ARTIST BEFORE YOU USE IT. WE WORKED VERY HARD ON IT. HOURS AND HOURS. IT’S NOT EASY TO CREATE SOMETHING. RESPECT US AND STOP DOING THAT. THIS GOES TO ALL THE FANDOMS, NOT JUST EDDSWORLD

5. Harassment

As you know, Tord and Tom left because people wouldn’t stop forcing them to make out or be together in real life ㅡ same goes to Paultryk now. I’m not saying that I’m against the ship. I’m saying that don’t cross the line. Imagine if group of people shipping you with your friend and won’t stop talking about it and forcing you to kiss your friend. How annoying would that be? Also, please when you draw fan arts or write a fanfiction don’t use their last name because that’s just messed up. They’re real life people just like you and me! Later, if they get a job or something normally their boss searches up their name to see who they are. WELP IF YOU LOOK AT THE RESULTS THERE WILL BE GAY FANARTS ALL OVER THE PLACE PLEASE DON’T RUIN THEIR LIFE. PEOPLE ALSO SENDS BUNCH OF GAY FANARTS TO THEM ALSO?! WHY WOULD YOU THINK THAT’S A GOOD IDEA?!??!

Tord can’t even use his own name now because of you guys. He disappeared because he was scared, disgusted by you people. Tord’s youtube channel is gone too ㅡ why are you doing this to them? 

6. R.I.P

EVERY FUCKING TIME I LOOK AT THE COMMENT SECTION THERE’S ALWAYS A COMMENT SAYING R.I.P EDD. YES I KNOW HE’S NOT WITH US ANYMORE AND YOU GUYS ARE JUST BEING POLITE BUT PLEASE FUCKING STOP SPAMMING THAT. THINK OF WHAT THE EDDSWORLD CREW WILL FEEL. I FEEL SORRY FOR THEIR NOTIFICATION BOX. OH HEY GUESS WHAT IF YOU LOOK AT TOMSKA’S CHANNEL DARKSQUIDGE THAT COMMENT IS ALL OVER THE PLACE. Please just stop. That’s messed up. We get it. He’s in heaven where he can drink cola whenever he wants. Don’t remind us about it. We won’t forget, we promise. You don’t have to constantly tell us. 


It’s not fine at all.

What the fuck is wrong with you all? Why? We all love Eddsworld but you guys are ruining it for many people.

Boost for @greyscale-comic

I’ve been putting off making this post for a reallllly long time, but it’s gotten to a point where I feel like I kinda have to. I’ve been trying to subtly boost this comic for quite some time, but it doesn’t seem to be working the way I want it to… so I had to make an actual post for it.

A lot of you probably know me as the Dreamtale reinterpretation fanatic, creator of bizarre and comedic settings and drawer of many ships, but I’m actually creating my own Undertale comic at the moment as well. Like, traditional Undertale. Based directly on the game.

It’s called Greyscale, and it’s the story of Undertale, but there are two protagonists since one of them had just completed a genocide route and reset into another timeline thanks to Chara. The other protagonist is kind-hearted, approaches problems with a mature attitude and is basically a candidate for a pacifist route, which the two of them must complete in order for Protag 1 to get their soul back, or so it seems.

And only one of them has the power to reset, but we don’t know which one it is yet.

If you’re wondering who Xaki and Alix are, they are these protagonists, Xaki being the ‘insane’ one and Alix being the ‘nice’ one.

Also, Chara is there the entire time, being the narrator. Only Xaki can see them and hear everything they say and Chara takes obnoxious advantage of that. (did I mention that Chara is extremely annoying in this comic)

It’d make me really happy if you checked it out. If you like my writing and interpretations of certain characters and their relationships, you might like this comic, since it focuses a lot on character interaction. (and let’s not forget about the comedy and inevitable ship jokes.)

awholelotfrosty  asked:

So I don't know if this has been discussed, but a friend of mine who hasn't been able to watch Goblin but has rather seen discussions about it, asked me "what do you think about the age gap?" and if I thought it was intentional with the casting? I wanted to do a blogpost about it, but I got to no time to do a proper one so I'm leaving my thoughts with you to expound on in the beautiful way you always do: (part 1/3)

(direct quote from my reply) “supaliaxpress on tumblr has a post on that, and I agree with her completely. i dont mind it. one basically, the male is a soul somewhat frozen in time. it’s not established what his age really was when he died as a human being. his soul never aged, though time passed. and i think that concept and belief is proved throughout the drama.” (2/4. realized it could take much more space)

Lastly, to add here I think it’s one of the major themes of the story of Shin and Euntak, and even with Wang Yeo and Sun. The love that carries on with the soul, and that love binds more than bodies- love, true love, binds souls. Despite the age, the social standing from where each party comes from…love overlooks these differences and is founded by something more profound. And that souls, who lived life with care, never really “age”.

Ah, I think you said it perfectly :)

The topic of the “age gap” is something I’ve been questioned many times and I always refer people to this post about pedophillia whenever that topic comes up, lol. Anyways, there’s really not much to attack about the age gap since it was PERSONALLY addressed in the drama itself… yes… the writer acknowledged the “ridiculous age gap” between Kim Shin and Ji Eun-Tak… an age gap of 900+ years >.> Now… really, the age gap doesn’t matter in their relationship because, like you said, Shin is in a state of “frozen time.” He’s an immortal for goodness sakes. He’s gonna forever look like that in 20 days, 10 years, 1000 years, FOREVER. But what ticks me off is how people ALWAYS mention his actual REAL LIFE AGE… when his REAL LIFE AGE has fuckin no importance in the drama whatsoever… Just like Kim Go Eun playing both a 19 yo and 29 yo… BUT SHE’S 25. So… what is the real purpose of their age gap in the drama???

The age gap serves as an obstacle for Shin and Eun-Tak to overcome if they want to meet again in the next life; that’s why they FIRST met when she was 19 and MET AGAIN when she was 19 because this shows that Shin loves her no matter what age she is, who she is, and what she is. Shin doesn’t know at what age he will meet Eun-Tak (goodness… she could be a frickin grandma by the time they meet again >.> which I hope that never happens cause that’s sad), but this doesn’t change the fact that he loves her and she is his only and last bride. Like I’ve mentioned, Canada is a special place because it is a land known for acceptance… which is their love… she accepts him for who he is and vice versa. People forget that Eun-Tak also has to love and accept Shin for who he is… yes… he physically looks like a man in his mid thirties but she doesn’t see him like that… she only sees him as the man she loves – not numbers. Their love defies all aspects of numerical value that we hold highly in today’s society… aka. age and time. A love so deep and true that their love cannot be quantified. Therefore, NUMBERS DO NOT EXIST IN THEIR WORLD… THEIR LOVE STORY. 

Here’s a beautiful poem by Lang Leav that I think sums up Shin and Eun-Tak’s age difference… 

“What if I told you that one day you will meet a girl who is unlike anyone else you’ve known. She will know all the right things to say, what makes you laugh, what turns you on, what drives you wild and best of all, you will do for her exactly what she does for you.

“When will I meet her?”

“Well let’s put it this way, she doesn’t even exist yet.” 

~Lang Leav

In the end, age is just a number

We use numbers because we know how to make sense of them… 

However, we don’t know when we’ll find that person we want to spend the rest of our lives with…

We don’t know when we’ll fall in love…

We can’t tell ourselves to fall in love…

We can’t stop ourselves from falling in love… 

But when we do fall in love… 

When has love ever made sense anyways?

The 1st of May kick-starts Mental Health Awareness Month! So for this entire month lets celebrate our triumphs, acknowledge struggles, and just come together as one to show your support. Let other people know they’re not alone. Feel less alone yourself- but you are not, no matter what. Reach out and get help, or help others to seek it themselves. Talk about mental health so we can break the stigma on mental health together!

An update on the state of stuff and things

Sooo… I’m moving to Idaho for college this Thursday! (temporarily of course, it being for college and all. I’ll be jumping back and forth between here and there over the months)

This being said, me and my family have been running around trying to get everything done before then. The amount that I’ll be drawing will probably decrease a little this week as I attempt to collect myself and come to terms with the fact that I have to like, be an adult.

And once I’m out at school, I, of course, can make no promises about activity being nearly as frequent as it has been. I’ll still be here, but I’ll be WAY busier.

This week, I won’t be working on my regular comics. To be specific, Greyscale won’t be updating next Sunday since that weekend will be crazy.

Whether I’ll be able to update it the week after that as I adjust into the new schedule is is still up in the air, but I hope I can.

Wish me luck!!

stop this idea that people can’t be happy without romantic love, that people are empty if they don’t have a romantic relationship, that people need to have romantic love to have a full life, it’s not just untrue and supports the pressure and unreal expectations that society puts on people’s lives, but also invalidate and erase aromantic people, just stop

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone dealing with the wildfires right now.

There are few things scarier. My family was affected by one back when I was in high school. I know that fear of something like that being beyond your control, and I know the devastation. I’m praying for you all, for those battling them and the animals/livestock. 

Sending all the love and support your way.
