Done for the RvB Big Bang! It was wonderful working with meteor, and while I wasn’t able to get the pieces I wanted done by the deadline (work…it kills me…) I’ll be continuing to work on them, so expect more art dedicated to this amazing story.
Seriously, it’s incredible. Meteor’s Tex and York are wonderfully in character and well written, the atmospheric horror is impeccable, and the questions it leaves you with makes you desperate for the second part.
Just so many drugs (script and OTC, not recreational).
GoCard (South-East Queensland’s public transport fare card).
Bottle of water.
Five things you’ll find in my bedroom
Cat(s), in a variety of combinations and locations within the room.
A very large knife.
My desk and filing cabinet for Adulting (the desk for fun stuff–tumblr! WoW!, writing!–is in the living room).
Five things I’m currently into:
The Steve and Bucky fandom.
Writing Steve and Bucky (I know, I know, this revelation has left you all reeling from shock).
Helping my BFF with the Qld government LGBTIQ WOG strategy (I’m not doing much, he’s the one on the working group, I just try and help him where I can).
Playing World of Warcraft.
Drawing and colouring what I draw with copic markers–very poorly, but it doesn’t matter, because it’s quite enjoyable. Copics are so smooooooth.
Five things on my to-do list:
Get the gutters cleaned.
Oil the porch.
Try and follow my this-is-the-order-you’re-writing-your-fics list.
Get ready for patch 7.2 in World of Warcraft.
Rearrange the library so I can get into it without having to squeeze past a cupboard.
Five things people may not know about me:
I spent two years as a Jillaroo on a sheep and cattle station in far north Queensland.
I have a degree in applied ethics (which goes so well with a law degree; yes, whatever joke you’re thinking of right now, I’ve probably heard it).
I used to breed and show fancy mice and about forty of my mice were the centrepiece of a children’s exhibit at the Queensland Art Gallery called Animals Who Think They Are People. The Gallery built this HUGE habitat for them and every morning for a month I’d go into the Gallery and hang out before they opened to pull all the mice out of the habitat, check the mice out and give them some love, while the Gallery staff cleaned it. They had these amazing character sheets done up for the mice, with their names and a bit about their personalities, and drawing paper so kids could draw them, and it was just one of the neatest things I’ve ever been part of. (Plus they paid me five hundred bucks AND let me have everything afterwards, the habitat, all the toys and wheels they bought, everything, which was, woah. I was a starving Uni student so that was pretty damn cool).
I put myself through Uni working in a bookstore (I know, I don’t know why I’ve never written a bookstore AU, either…).
I don’t have a drivers licence and never have, and I hate taking taxis/Ubers etc, so i get pretty much everywhere on my feet/public transport.
Hey, people who have done this whole house-buying thing before, is it usual when real estate agents just…lie to your face about what’s normal and what’s not? (It was clearly a company policy, but they wanted me to believe it was something ‘everybody did’ when it was. Their company’s policy.)
I'm the same. The spoilers themselves are fine but the flailing always gets a bit unbearable.
Bless you for commiserating. I am not a flaily person in general, and the way this fandom overreacts to pretty much every little spoiler that comes out seriously tests my patience. I try not to harsh people’s squee, so I keep my trap shut (at least here on tumblr), but the way people get spun up about information either good or bad seriously diminishes my enjoyment of the show and participating in fandom. I blacklist a whole lot and I block anyone who regularly uses hyperbole, all caps, or feels the need to “die” at every turn. Still, shit gets through and I find myself exhausted from the bleed through of high levels of others’ emotions.
I wish those of us who don’t enjoy that level of emotional feedback for spoilers could chill together in a low key way. In the meantime, this is pretty much me during spoiler season:
The performers, who call themselves “funnyguys”, advertise that they will paint any message on their body in exchange for money while dancing in the jungle.
While many choose their own name or a funny message, PewDiePie jokingly asked the pair to display: “DEATH TO ALL JEWS”.
He published the resulting clip, showing them dancing and laughing while holding the antisemitic message above their heads, on his YouTube channel.
While some fans found the clip funny, others said the star had gone too far.
Despite requesting the hateful message to be displayed, and publishing the resulting video, PewDiePie apologised to fans at the end of the video – but still gave the performers a five-star rating.
He said: “I am sorry. I didn’t think they would actually do it. I feel partially responsible. I mean I’ve got to give them five stars for an outstanding experience because at least they did what I asked.”
He added: “I don’t feel good. I don’t feel too proud of this, I’m not gonna lie. I’m not antisemitic, or whatever it’s called, okay so don’t get the wrong idea. It was a funny meme, and I didn’t think it would work, okay. I swear I love jews, I love ‘em.
"I am so sorry. I don’t know what else to say.”
pewdiepie paid some guys actual money to hold up a sign that said “DEATH TO ALL JEWS”, published it, gave them a 5-star rating, and then tried to shrug off any responsibility by saying he didn’t think they would really do it. he even says he only feels “partially” responsible and he’s “not antisemitic” despite the fact that he 1) posted this video so close to a surge in antisemitic hate crimes following trump’s election and 2) posted this video at all.
this isn’t funny, this isn’t satire, it’s gross and hateful shock humor at the expense of people who are already unsafe with the increasingly emboldened neo nazis–i mean, “alt right”. it’s not defensible. stop supporting him.
