Derp Emblem: New Year’s Party

I mean, even though uh… Midnight was 17 hours ago in my timezone, Happy New Year everyone??? We have a lot planned for this upcoming year, with the first big thing happening within the next two weeks! I can’t tell you what it is or what day it’s going to be, but I think it’s a surprise that regular stream goers are going to enjoy! As for getting more stuff out, I’m still trying my best to work between all of the other things I have to do! Seriously though guys, thanks for sticking around for another fun-filled year and may many more come ❤

UPDATE EYEWITNESS RATINGS

GOOD NEWS: THE NUMBERS WENT UP

BAD NEWS: WE DIDN’T HIT 1 MILLION VIEWS

I don’t know why but I’m pissed af. USA Network never pays attention or care or even promote for Eyewitness but then they wanted us to get 1 million views within 1 week which was FUCKING NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. 

Let’s wait to see what happens next. In the mean time, everyone please keep spreading the world about this amazing TV show, getting more people to watch it and please keep your faith. 

Have a good day y’all

Hey guys! Snail here! I’m just giving you guys a heads up for this week.

I’m moving back to California this Friday, and basically need to pack all my stuff within the next couple of days. Including my laptop and tablet too.

So unfortunately there will be no digital drawings for the next week and a half.(But if my packing is done early enough I maaaay possibly make a digital doodle. But no promises).

However that DOESN’T mean there will be no posts. I’ll be keeping a sketch book out, so expect some traditional artwork to pop up here and there until I’m all settled in. Anyways, cya!!

Ps: I can’t draw stars to save my life. See tiny Ivan driving the U-Hual? He’s gonna run me over for failing at stars.

I keep hearing the same thing from the haters.

The thing that kills me: It’s the wording. It’s the same kind of groupthink I find when I hear political pundits speak, and one or two start throwing around the same buzzwords that week–pretty soon (within hours), they’re all using the same jargon. Later that day, and the next, all of their followers are using the same phrases.

So, the fanatical followers have glommed onto what Hook said in “The Bear and the Bow” (5x06). I read it from nearly every Hooker and Rumpel-hater out there. But what does it mean, “The Crocodile’s had more chances than anyone”? What does that mean? Does anyone know?! Where did this come from? I never heard this used or discussed in the show, before. I certainly never heard it used by fans until Hook said it on the show.

Chances? To what? To get rid of the Darkness? No, he really hasn’t had a chance. He had one chance, that we know of–Belle’s kiss–to lose the curse, and he couldn’t, not then, when he still had to cross realms to find his son. 

To be accepted? I keep thinking of this little moment after Hook shot Belle: David calmed Rumpel down and stopped him from killing Hook. David quietly says, “Murder is a bad first impression.” I think he also said, “What would Belle want you to do?” They all get to the hospital, and Rumpel comes in the door, asking, “Where’s Belle?” and David says, “Get him outta here!” and starts pushing at him. What? You know he loves this woman. By what right do you make him leave when he’s frantic about her condition? He later helped the “heroes” by protecting Snow from Regina, by warning them of danger. Still, David salivated at getting the dagger so “the Dark One can finally be controlled”.

To become “good”? He has. He went with the heroes to find Henry in Neverland. They didn’t even KNOW what realm he was in until they used Rumpel’s blood to find him. He may have struck off on his own, but he ended up working with the group, helping them to save Henry–and warning them multiple times how crafty Pan could be. When they got back, he continued helping them to swap Henry’s body back and defeat Pan’s plans. He sacrificed his life to get rid of Pan–and trap the Darkness–for good.

After that, then what? What “chance”? After he … DIED? If they want to blame ANYONE for returning the Darkness, blame Zelena. Or even Neal. He was returned, but it was not his choice. He was given no “chances” after that. Other than Belle, no one cared that after he was resurrected, he was enslaved. The “heroes” left him in a CAGE. TWICE. What chance did he have, exactly? I’d like to fucking know. He never had family and friends–a whole group of people–trying to free him or remove his curse.

After a year in a cage, being force-fed, forced with the dagger to threaten to kill others, including his True Love; and being molested by Zelena, his goal was radically altered when he saw the hat in the mansion. How can anyone blame him for taking that “chance”? Emma is finger-wagged by her mother and Regina for contemplating putting the Darkness into Zelena and killing her, ridding herself and her realm of it forever. They tell her that it’s premeditated murder. When Rumpelstiltskin tried to free himself from the dagger’s control by killing Hook, wasn’t that very similar to what Emma planned to do with Zelena? He didn’t specially target Hook for their centuries-long feud–that was just a side benefit. I don’t blame him a bit, but that was no “chance”. 

With everyone against him for being caught lying about knowing Anna and trying to kill Hook for an unknown purpose, he is on the outside, once again, literally and figuratively, without even his wife on his side, this time. He had no chance. No one gave him a chance by giving him a lift and some warm clothes when Belle banished him, either.

Once he returned to Storybrooke, on nothing but his own wits, he attempted to survive the blackening the curse was doing to his heart, to keep his ability to love, and there was only one other way he knew how (after Zelena had tricked him once again)–to get the Author to do something about it. When that didn’t work, he was dying and the Dark One would have been in total control. When the Apprentice removed the Darkness from him and tried to contain it in Merlin’s Hat, he had a chance, but he was barely alive. When he was awakened, he was immediately kidnapped by the Dark One and used as a pawn. 

So, I simply don’t see that Rumpel’s had ANY “chances”. At all. He’s been either powerless as a spinner and peasant; cursed and reviled as less than human, or powerless and disregarded.

Besides that, Hook didn’t fare too well when he was the Dark One, either. How many “chances” are we going to give him? Oh, never mind. He’s dead … but not for long, because WE’RE GOING TO GIVE HIM ANOTHER CHANCE.

Even though, “Magic can do much, but no’ that! Dead is dead.”

my family is completely out of water and we're out of money

hey y'all this is an emergency I live in jamaica and we have a tank to hold our water we have a guy fill up our water tank once a week since we don’t have running water in our house and i made a mistake and somehow the tank was running all night so we literally have no water until friday which means no water to bathe, drink, or cook (we have only canned veggies, bread, and margarine)
we literally have zero dollars right now until friday which is where the big mistake is at
idk if it will even rain the next few days since within the past month its only rained twice
its only $25 US dollars to pay the water man and I’d really appreciate it if you guys would donate so we can drink and bathe and eat proper food until friday
you can donate to my dads paypal: kentishphillip@gmail.com

ah yes, fma day, don’t forget october 3rd. a day where people confuse it for being the date ed and al transmuted their mother and making it the year 1910 and typing it “full metal.” a day where people make overused nina jokes and hughes jokes and varieties of other dark humor within the show and mean girls memes. ah, what a day

Update #5 and Quick Request

Alright guys, so hopefully I’ll be getting a job very soon, within the next 3 -4 weeks, which means a lot of this mess will be cleared up! I’ll be able to attend college off my own back and I’m so excited c: However, until then I am still in the same position financially.

Mental health is looking a bit better, I still get some really bad phases but I’m hoping they’ll eventually just stop. Also it’s my birthday next wednesday which is pretty rad!

Now onto the request, I’m unable to get into college for the next 3 days due to lack of funds, and my coursework assignment is due really soon D: I’d be so grateful if anyone could spare some money to help me get into college for a few days, I’d allow me to make more progress on my work! It costs £11 ($16) to travel into college every day, but any amount at all is appreciated! Even if you only gave a bit, it’d be helping me out so so much c: 

My paypal email address is geekyprincess74907@hotmail.com, or I also have a donate button on my blog (but paypal do subtract a small percentage of what you donate). If you need a link for mobile, message me and I’ll be happy to send you it!

Seriously though, thank you all so much for the support you’ve all given me over these past few weeks. It’s helped me so much and I’m eternally grateful for it all! Thank you guys, keep smiling <3

Droplets Update Info

Okay, here’s what ya’ll have been wanting to know.

I’ve finished the writing for CH21 of Droplets, so it needs to go through a proof and an edit, and then it’ll go live. Expect it sometime within the next two full days.

CH22 needs an opening hook written up, but otherwise it is also complete as well, so I will get to proofing that after I post CH21. This means CH22 will appear around a week after CH21 (I want to stagger them a little bit, to avoid spoilers appearing too much).

CH21 is 35,000 words pre-edit, and CH22 is 20,000 pre-edit.

I originally wrote the material as one chapter, but seeing as that’s over 100 pages … I figured that was a bit crazy to have as one update. So, we’re having a double update.

Hope you enjoy, and apologies for the delay! Please share the info around!
