and that makes things right

nihil-fiat replied to your post: Honestly Robert E Lee would probably never have…

… right, because it was merely a statue of him, not of the heroism and sophistication he, as a man, represented.

Look, Robert E. Lee had a lot of heroic traits, but the most heroic was his capability to admit when he was wrong–he surrendered in order to save American lives, accepted his disgrace and showed shame and humility, and continually expressed regret for his actions. 

Removing memorials of him that people look to as a form of “Southern Pride” and “Our Great Heritage” is a means of honoring his decisions not as a treasonous general who led Americans to kill other Americans, but as the human being who saw what he’d done wrong and wanted to actually make things better.

History is very often built on interpreting a historical figure in a way that serves a living person’s ends and ambitions (Jesus Christ of Nazareth and Mohammed being two of, if not the, most prolific examples of such); much as with the two aforementioned individuals, though, I’m pretty sure Robert E. Lee would just be burying his head in his hands if he saw what people were doing “in his name”.

Or he would be doing this:

the best part about character interpretation? you’re right. all of you. any side. because that’s how you interpret the character through your world lens and experiences. any part of their actions or personality can be put into any context to fit your argument. or you could have none at all and still care/not care for the character because it rubs you the right/wrong way. 

dismissing other fans as ‘missing the point’ or ‘completely misunderstanding’ blows my fucking mind. have your difference of opinion, because you’re both right. 

you just get to decide whether or not to associate with the people who have the same interpretations. 

and forcing yourself into posts with different interpretations to harass other people make you an asshole, no matter what side you’re on.

There was someone in my inbox talking about hair-down Kuroo and the first thing I thought was “it’s been a while since I’ve last made Bokuto feel gay over Kuroo’s hair hasn’t it”

I don’t know if I’m qualified to answer this at all, but I’ll do my best! Before I start, this is how I draw Sans, how you choose to draw him entirely depends on what feels more comfortable to you and your style. (I tried drawing Sans a bunch of different ways until I found a style that suits me.)

FIRST!! Start off with a ‘t’ shape (we all know the drill but its super important to help figure out where his face goes and how to shape his face)

After all that noise, you can shape his face around the ‘t’. It helps a lot when you’re figuring out his jaw situation.

Again! Use the lines to figure out where to add his face! (*gasp*! he’s already cute af)

:O

Sans is all curves. (one of the reasons drawing him is so therapeutic for me)

Make him round! Add some poofy clothes! Tell him he’s pretty!

Basically my tips are don’t underestimate the ‘t’ and Sans is at his most powerful the rounder he is.

The whole “Lucius was abusive with Draco” thing has always been so funny to me. Really, I don’t get how people are able to believe something so silly. 

Seriously, guys, wake the fuck up, if Lucius had been abusive with his son, he wouldn’t have been a part of the series. You know why? Because Narcissa “If you attack my son again I shall ensure that is the last thing you ever do” Malfoy would have killed him ten times in a row.
