Taking baby and child spirits away from their parents is such an awful idea. Sometimes you have no choice to take in a child for their safety, or you can’t find an adult of their species to help care for them, I understand that and applaud anyone who can handle the difficulties. I have young spirits I’ve taken in for various reasons and some of them I couldn’t find an adult to help, because there were so few of their kind left I literally could not find a single other individual or they were exiled from their civilization for their (deceased) parent’s crimes or other reasons. I’ve rescued orphans of a species I had badly wanted to work with for a very long time where, after taking them to adults who could help, the entire species declared me an enemy because my involvement with the child meant I had a part in their tragedy, nevermind that I had been the one to rescue them. And I still returned the child knowing this would happen.
There are issues with babies that have been said before: Chances are that you’re not prepared for a human baby, much less a spirit where you do not even exist within the same plane and cannot be there for them the majority of the time they need you. The issue of exactly where you or the spirit shop obtained the child. That they’re a developing creature and not something cute to be your pet. I won’t list every issue.
But consider this too: No matter what you do, there is a high chance of the child’s development being stunted. It doesn’t matter what you are Over There, you’re a physical human here and this is where you are centered. Even if you are a member of their species Over There, can you really say that you have the full experience of growing up and adulthood necessary to raise them?
Can you show a dragon where their fire comes from or reassure them that yes this is what it feels like at their age and their feelings are perfectly normal, no their fire isn’t sick? Or reassure them that the bursts of magic and energy beneath their scales are at a normal level and you don’t need to see a healer? Do you know what to do when they get a headache from the influx of magic that every child of their species goes through? Can you make sure they’re learning everything the other dragon parents are teaching their hatchlings?
Or what about taking in a young demon and they have no choice but to follow you on this plane, how well equipped are you for handling the insecurity and other issues that can come from seeing the way humans view demons? What are you going to do when your child sees nothing but Christian depictions of evil demons and bad horror flicks? Are they even going to see anything beyond biblical demons in media if you live in a mainly Christian area, or are you going to have to deal with their issues from that as well?
When a multiheaded spirit with separate personalities can’t stop fighting and begins to hate themselves and wish they could remove the others, are you really able to help them through that? Do you have any idea how to talk with them? Do you even have the slightest level of personal experience so that they don’t feel like you don’t understand a single thing they’re going through?
With any number of predatory spirits, can you help them to understand that their urges are natural and everything is okay? And really help them to understand what is okay to hunt and what is not, and why you still have certain morals, and how to use their weapons and hunt properly and not get hurt in the process? To not get lost in their bloodlust? Gods forbid you have a cannibalistic spirit or one with major hunger issues, can you handle those instincts?
I could list any number of examples but my point is that you are a human on this plane and they are not, and your development cycles and learning are not mutual.
You need to stop. I mean it. Stop attacking others for what they ship, especially tomtord. It’s just a damn ship. None of them are canon. So let’s say that tomtord is abusive, which it isn’t. If it is, then all of the ships are abusive because they all hurt/killed each other at least once. Nobody wants to hear you rant about a fictional thing because /you don’t like it/. I mean, I guess it’s okay to harmlessly rant about it, but attacking/targeting others? That’s a big no-no. Listen, I’m sorry that if a ship triggers your emotions or reminds you of trauma. You have every right to dislike that ship. But hey, don’t make people feel bad over it. Leave people alone, for god’s sake. Stop causing ship wars, that’s the reason why many of the Eddsworld members left the show. You going around spreading your social justice is just, sad to watch. IT’S JUST A WEB TOON. IT’S NOT THE SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST. CALM YOUSELF.
But listen, please do not ship the people irl. It’s okay to ship the characters in the web toon, but not physically the people who help with it. For example, don’t say something like “I ship Thomas Ridgewell and Tord Larsson”. That’s literally the people irl. Don’t use their real names. And don’t force people to ship something, that’s the same thing as attacking someone over a ship.
You see what happened with Pat? He left because he was being shipped irl, and his real name was being used. Do NOT let that happen again with Matt or anyone else. STOP USING THEIR REAL NAMES!!!
Okay, here’s the thing, fuck all writing advice that tells you how to do your story or write your scenes, because guess what! THEY ARE NOT THE ONE’S WRITING THE STORY!!! I can not stress this enough, you are the one with the vision for how YOUR story is supposed to go. Only you know how to tell this story. Only you. Fuck anyone who’s like “Prologues are bad, blah, blah blah,” “Don’t kill your main character off early, I feel cheated, blah, blah, blah” or “Starting off with a dream sequence makes me feel like I’ve been lied to” GUESS WHAT ASSHOLES THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO FEEL LIKE, WE WRITE THINGS TO INVOKE A FEELING, BE IT GOOD OR BAD, ITS A FEELING TO GET YOU TO UNDERSTAND HOW THE CHARACTERS FEEL DUMBASS
do u think he only married her because they had jolyne? that makes me kinda sad if they weren't actually in love but it would make sense that he divorces her, and wasn't really ready for the responsibility of being a dad bc hes... bad at that.
tbh……i mean that’s what i’ve been thinking for a while now?? none of the “marry have a kid” thing really seems to be in his ballpark……i would LOVE an ova about how him and mrs.kujo met or like….just something explaining his past with her and how this all happened because we know absolutely NOTHING about jolyne’s mom she literally only appeared in 2-3 panels, spoke once, and doesn’t even have a name lmao??? like at least with joseph and jonathan we get to see them meeting their future wives but with jotaro we have nothing….which is kinda disappointing because just finding a girl ect. ect. isn’t a given for him as a character lmao……ANYWAYS i know there was really no place to put it in stone ocean or any previous parts but i hope it gets explained sometime, and i would’ve appreciated a panel or two about it in stone ocean
I binged all of oxenfree and I LOVE it so I wanted to make some jack fanart of it~
I don’t know if Jack will ever see it but if he ever does I just want to say thank you for being so awesome. My dad died at the end of November 2015 and I spend all year hiding in my room. I stopped drawing, i stopped wanting to socialize, and i didnt let anyone come over to see me ever. It was so hard getting out of bed everyday and go to work but i had to y'know. The entire time I watched @markiplier and @therealjacksepticeye RELIGIOUSLY and I just sat there watching them grow and be so passionate about their job and what they do and seeing them so happy everyday made me start feeling happy. I’d laugh along with them and smile and eventually I decided to pick up my pencil and sketchbook again. At first it was little doodles but something turned on in my head and I got serious again. I just put in music and draw all day and I’m legitimately happy again. I know jack and mark aren’t physically here but watching those silly videos made me feel like I wasn’t alone through the whole thing and I was like I really was spending time with friends. I hope this all makes sense and doesn’t just sound like nonsense.
So I guess this whole rant thing I’m going on about is to just try to express how happy I am to have found jack and mark and to say thank you for being there for me.. ❤
oooooh look, another list of aus for your writing pleasure: [sorry if any of these have already been done!]
+ you’re the cute barista and i’m the indie artist who plays at your coffee shop. i’m totally doing it for the pay and not to stare at your face for three hours every week, what are you talking about. + i’m the librarian and you’re the person who, in an attempt to flirt, just asked me if we carry books here. + you discreetly come into my bookstore every day just to play with my cat that i let wander. you think i don’t notice, but i totally do. don’t worry; it’s freaking adorable. + you are the lead singer of a rock band, and i’m the fan who you just called up on stage to sing a song with you. wow, you are way hotter in person and now i just forgot every lyric of yours ever. + you’re the cute trainer at the gym and i just fell off my treadmill because i couldn’t stop staring at you. + we’re the only two people in this theater and i’m taking note of all the parts of the film that make you laugh so i can talk to you after. + you’re selling cookies for your sister’s girl scout troop and you’re so adorable and awkward while doing it that i buy fifteen boxes. + you just started telling me your life story on the bus without even giving me your name first, and wait did you just say that you’re involved in the mafia?! + you’re the tech guru on campus and i keep getting viruses on my computer just so i can come talk to you. + we’re rival vloggers who are forced to do a panel together at vidcon, but it’s hard to despise you when you’re that much cuter in person. + you’re an actor on my favorite tv show and i’m your biggest fan. needless to say that when i meet you for the first time, i get so excited that i accidentally punch you in the face. + you’re a pirate and you were unaware about your feelings for me until a siren took my image. + you’re my tutor but i keep getting distracted because you’re so pretty. + even though i’m about to be carted off to the er after my car accident, i’m still gonna try to flirt with you, the cute emt. + i’m an escort but not that type of escort. if you play your cards right though, i could be. + i own an esty shop and you’re the cute worker at the post office i keep running into.
I love how I have an hour to finish my 30 min school work thing and I have to spend it picking up my spoons because my mom thought yelling at me and insulting me was a good way to make sure I got it done
(i am not even part of the musicals/theatre fandom but this is pissing me off so much i just have to say something)
i will never get a chance to see hamilton live
there is literally no chance of me ever seeing it for two primary reasons (but there are other ones as well) that are also relevant to other performances i desperately want to see
1) i am poor as hell and other hamilton/theatre fans are poor as hell. literally i can barely afford to pay for the songs on itunes no matter actually affording the how many goddamn dollars a ticket costs
2) (also kind of related to the money thing) as i do not live in america, there is literally no affordable way for me to get there. i live about a a $2000 plane ticket away and even if i could afford a ticket to see it i most certainly couldn’t afford a way to get there or stay there or the days off work/school my parents and i will have to take. and i know this is relevant to so many other people as well
like, the people who are angry about bootlegs need to realise that people have different lives than they do and aren’t as fortunate to be able to see the things they love in person
i know i know you should support things in every way you can and i do realise that bootlegging stuff isn’t helping and if i could go see it live i most definitely would
but i do buy songs on itunes and i do try and buy other things like merch but one thing i can’t do and will never have the chance to do is watch hamilton live and god if they do ever film it i will definitely buy it but if the bootlegged copy is the most i’m gonna get right now, then i’m sorry but i’m going to watch it and i’m going to fucking enjoy it without other people making me feel shit about it
I am actually afraid of posting this because I’ll get a lot of hate but I wanted to get some opinions on the topic.
Unlike many teenagers I’ve never watched danisnotonfire. I was fourteen when I watched a video of his (can’t even remember which one it was) and I wasn’t impressed so I basically forgot about him. It wasn’t until I was nineteen that
I actively started watching his (and Phil’s) videos. And I was absolutely in love; His content was entertaining, funny,
understandable and – thought provoking. Sadly enough, in a rather bad way for me.
I AM NOT LYING OR TRYING TO PULL FACTS ITS A THING IN OUR FAMILY UNCLE CALLS EVERYBODY TRASH well except gran and grandpa since you can’t call them bad words it’s forbidden
HE ALSO HAS AN EQUIVILENT TO ‘SWEETHEART’ LIKE HE CALLED ME 'GARBAGE’ WHEN I WAS SMALL AND HE CALLS HIS WIFE GARBAGE AND HIS DAUGHTER GARBAGE IN THE GENTLEST SENSE OF THE WORD OMG HOW DID I FORGET ABOUT THIS IM NOT MAKING THIS UP OR ANYTHING
HEADCANON: XANXUS CALLS HIS ENEMIES AND THOSE HE HATES 'SCUM’ AND HE CALLS THE VARIA AND TSUNA AS 'TRASH’ BECAUSE THEIR ACTUALLY IN HIS 'PACK’ AND ITS THE CLOSEST HE HAS TO CALLING THEM SWEET NAMES
