and wanted to do this

White women really need to stop writing fics and making graphics and art about interracial f/f ships in which the visibly brown or black woman in the ship serves as the “knight” or “lionheart” for the white woman who’s portrayed as the “queen” or “princess”. You all are being transparent and gross as hell. For once, consider how lbpq women of color are already painted as angry and brutal. Consider how lbpq women of color aren’t allowed to be soft or vulnerable or sensitive. Consider that they can’t be romantically or sexually autonomous without being fetishized by the male gaze and the white, colonial gaze, especially if they’re trans. Consider that the next time you begin outlining an AU or storyline in which the woman of color is the knight for her white savior princess. 

as many of you already know, @crackedverbosity ‘s family was deeply effected by the disastrous floods in Louisianan earlier this month. Though the waters have since receded, the need to rebuild her family home has been left in it’s wake. You can read all about her experience HERE.

Cracked, is a beloved friend and i would do anything in my power to help her family, but by myself i can only do so much to help raise money for their Go Fund Me campaign which can be found HERE. I’m hoping to help encourage others to give what they can by offering what incentives i can for helping them raise the money to continue with the mountain of repairs necessary to restore their home!

If you are able to help (and don’t mind me seeing your given name and mailing address) e-mail me a copy of your Go Fund Me receipt (along with your mailing address and tumblr @ so i know who it is! <3) to pidgymails@gmail.com (these can be verified against Cracked’s list, so please, please don’t attempt to send me fraudulent receipts, this is for charity!) and I will snail mail you the corresponding reward pack listed below…

FOR DONATIONS OF 20$-49$

  • two randomly selected mini prints from my existing body of work
  • a hand written note telling you how much i love you!!! <3 <3 <3

FOR DONATIONS OF 50$-99$

[example of doodle button designs]

PLEASE BE AWARE

  • the prints you will be sent will be randomly chosen, so they may be canonical or AU, but everything will be kylux (and each will be different!). prints may contain some partial nudity (bare chests/legs) but will not be especially NSFW or contain blood, etc. You’ve all (maybe?) seen my work, you know what to expect! hahahah! XD
  • none of my work was ever meant to be printed, so the colors may be a little wacky, i draw in RGB just for Tumblr, so i can’t say what will happen for sure! but they will all be printed on glossy card stock! <3
  • i’ll send your prints anywhere in the world! i don’t know how long it will take to get there… but yeah! (O wO)
  • i wont be sending out the packages until September 30th. as some of you already know i’m getting married in the first week of September, so i’m mostly on hiatus from Tumblr ~ but Cracked’s family has to start repairs on their home right now, so i apologize in advance, but i hope the delay wont dissuade any of you from donating!
  • this post is valid only until September 25th, as i’ll need time to print, cut, and label all the packages to be sent on the 30th!

Thank you to everyone who is able to help! and also to everybody who reblogs this post and helps circulate the word! (-^ ___^-) this means so much to me, and i know that together we can all make a huge difference for Cracked and her family! <3 <3 <3 Much love and hugs to you all!!!

I just really want to meet 5sos and just like thank them.

I just want to thank them for everything their music and they themselves have done for me, maybe unknowingly.

But I just want to thank them.

Like thank you for being in my life and thank you for making amazing, goddammit such amazing, music that gets me through tough times.

Just thank you.

There is a traditional Kanton hand-clapping rhyme that tells the story of a foolish child grabbing the tails of a ninetales in turn, detailing all of the different curses that will befall them as a consequence. Although originally Japanese, the song has an English translation which, whilst mostly similar in meaning, has been adapted to preserve the rhymes and rhythm. The song is as follows:


Mama, mama, I felt the first tail,

As bright as a penny and as soft as a veil.

I think I did wrong, but I do not know why,

Because there’s night in my eyes and not a star in the sky. 


Mama, mama, I felt the next tail,

As light as a cloud and as sleek as a scale.

I think I did wrong, but I do not know how,

Because there’s blood on my tongue and sweat on my brow.


Mama, mama, I felt the third tail,

As thick as a bush and so golden and pale.

I think I did wrong, for all I can tell,

Because there’s fire in my chest that no water can quell.


Mama, mama, I felt the fourth tail,

As long as a ribbon and smooth as a gale.

I think I did wrong, or so I can guess,

Because there’s hands on my back that keep pulling my dress.


Mama, mama, I felt the fifth tail,

Swirling like wood smoke and shining like hail. 

I think I did wrong, or something akin,

Because there’s an ache in my bones and bites on my skin.


Mama, mama, I felt the sixth tail,

The golden of grain but not nearly so frail.

I think I did wrong, made some kind of mistake,

Because my head’s full of nightmares that don’t leave when I wake. 


Mama, mama, I touched them again,

As nice on the skin as a warm summer rain. 

I think I did wrong, it must be the case,

Because there’s a girl in the mirror who’s not got my face.


Mama, mama, I can’t count any more,

There’s teeth in my heart and a hand in my core.

The pain’s in my head and my bones have turned weak,

So let down my body and leave me to sleep.


The last line is often shouted, traditionally followed by the children dropping to the floor and closing their eyes. The length and content of the song varies across the Japanese regions.
