A lot of my favorite humans on this website have been going through things, and I want to take a second to shout out how amazing these bloggers/writers are! To do that, I am creating this post (which I would love to see reblogged and added to!!) to shower some lesser known blogs/writers with love and appreciation. Because of the amazing post by @rayraywrites I am going to include both Tumblrs and Ao3/FF.net links for every one of them! Please, check out their stories/art, give them some love and then REBLOG with your favorite lesser known artists and authors - IN ANY FANDOM. Let’s spread the love you guys!!
if you post art or writing on tumblr and are trying to get it seen don’t swear in the tags
tumblr will usually automatically flag the post as adult so that it won’t show up in filtered tags/searches and now with tumblr’s new nonfunctional “"safe mode”“ it’ll hide the post completely
i don’t know yet if swearing in the caption has the same effect but don’t swear in the tags
also and i’m not completely sure about this one but it seems like tumblr flags posts with too many tags because they look like spam; remember that only the first five tags actually make a post appear in that tag so limit it to that and whatever personal tags you need
i could REALLY use some money rn so hit me up if anything catches your eye, or reblog to give me a hand if you think your followers might appreciate my artistic stylings! i’m mostly a furry/creature/mon artist, but I’m flexible and always willing to try new things!
feel free to hit me up through tumblr’s messenger, or on FurAffinity (Jakkaloped), deviantart (Glitchgoat), or Twitter (glitchgoat) with inquiries!
The bee with the axe is based on one of the lesbian pride flag designs. Yes, sometimes TERFs use this flag design, but I have also gotten many messages from lesbians that use the flag and are not TERFs. More about that —-> here.
op:I have no idea if anyone feels the need for more pride flag colored bees, but here is a few more.
Can we PLEASE take a moment to appreciate the goddamn AMAZING amount of craftsmanship that goes into making pro ballet costumes?
I MEAN …
COME ON PEOPLE!
GENUINELY FUCKING SPECTACULAR!
THE GORGEOUSNESS OF IT ALL!!!
Costume designers are some of the most awesomely skilled people on the planet and I feel like they very rarely get as much admiration as they deserve. Especially in ballet, because a lot of the time at least half the audience doesn’t get the chance to see how intricate and beautiful these pieces truly are. I want to thank the artists who put so much effort into making characters look amazing.
two types of the signs, mostly based on people i know
type 1 - “i’m an aries!”, loud, starts driving before everyone has their seatbelt on (or before people even get in the car), loves cooking but usually just buys everything from the store and pretends they put hard work into it, hard to tell if they’re stupid or smart.
type 2 - takes 100 selfies in a row, does really cool makeup, doesn’t believe in school, “this musical artist is SO under appreciated.”
type 1 - down to earth, has neat handwriting and doodles in class, patient, bird-lover, likes making flower crowns, laughs a lot.
type 2 - show-off, amazing memory, can be an edgy people-hater, loves yelling, gives people weird nicknames.
type 1 - two-faced, feels like they need something in return for their actions, cares more about bagels than people, the friend who everyone worries about.
type 2 - loves reading, kind and supportive but awkward about it, the type of person you call when you need advice, snappy when they’re being interrupted, watches 5 tv shows at a time.
type 1 -down for literally any adventure, cries or has a breakdown while eating, doesn’t realize some things they do are harmful to themselves but can sense when others have a problem.
type 2 - talks very fast, takes on any task without a problem, loves talking about themselves, can probably do 10 backflips in a row, moody, sends smiley emojis in every text message.
type 1 - attention-seeking, wants everyone to respect them, says “lol” out loud, laughs at their own stories but sometimes forgets to listen to others, animal lover, a good role model.
type 2 - genuinely cares about their friends and checks up on them always, super chill and easygoing, fashionable, gives great hugs, someone you go to when you’re sad.
type 1 - shy, gentle, awful at explaining things and you really never know what they’re talking about, offers everyone gum, knows all the lyrics to every song they listen to.
type 2 - anxious about tiny things but ignores huge problems, cares so much about others that it gets annoying, likes to redecorate or organize their room for fun, loans you a pencil and forgets to ask for it back.
type 1 - movie expert, likes when people laugh at their jokes, untrustworthy but somehow you trust them anyway, casually shares deep secrets or personal information randomly like it’s no big deal.
type 2 - doesn’t like opening up or sharing feelings, artistic and individualistic, doesn’t have problems with anyone or anything.
type 1 - calm/quiet and very open minded, loves the ocean, nice but when provoked they turn into a whole other person (who is terrifying), very passionate about their interests.
type 2 - doesn’t ever know what’s happening, suspicious and questions others’ motives, either loves someone or hates them, never shares secrets. ever.
type 1 - plays at least 3 musical instruments, likes being right, theater kid, extrovert one minute and introvert the next, opens up to others and immediately regrets it.
type 2 - angsty teen attitude, has strong opinions, blames problems on others, maybe has a heart deep down?
type 1 - makes fun of everything, the most extroverted friend, pretends like they don’t care about others’ opinions but deep down is extremely self-conscious, forgetful, funniest jokes.
type 2 - honestly? a real fucking pain in the ass.
type 1 - feminist, nature lover and very free spirited, knowledgeable and factual, has a silly side, cool hair, can listen to all your problems but will never know what to say.
type 2 - can be cold but they are just trying to protect themselves, has one character/idol that they would literally die for, has probably made up all of the funny stories they tell because they want others to like them.
type 1 - extremely honest but can doubt their beliefs since they try to get along with everyone, generous when it comes to material but will not give up themselves to others.
type 2 - understanding, shy extrovert, great with advice but doesn’t know how to take other people’s advice (asks for help but doesn’t want to), never fully present or in the moment.
my condolences to anyone who’s ever lost me
and to anyone who got lost in me
or to anyone who ever felt they took a loss with me.
for the misunderstanding or the lack thereof.
i’m sorry you missed the God in me.
and i’m sorry you missed the light.
i’m sorry you forgot the way i arose like the moon,
night after night.
with the burden to forgive
eager to feed you everything.
see.. i’m a holy woman.
i know what it’s like to give life to a being
without ever needing to press skin against one another.
i’ve practiced how to hold my tongue long enough,
i’m afraid i forgot to say goodbye.
i’m afraid you’re under the impression that i was made to please you.
i was under the impression, you understood me better.
the truth is,
i’m a super woman.
and somedays i’m an angry woman.
and somedays i’m a crazy woman.
for still waiting..
for still loving harder even if i’m aching.
for still trusting that I’m still worth the most.
for still searching
for someone to understand me better.
So, I have been pretty good about trying to consistently do shout outs to writers and fic recs and so on, but today I want to take a second to do some artist appreciation-
You guys are such a huge part of what makes fandoms wonderful, and lovely, and you help us get through the long hiatuses with your amazing work. You put your time and your talent into creating beautiful pieces of art that the only thanks you get for is shoutouts and reblogs.
You suffer through the terrible trials of reposters- of people shamelessly stealing your work for their own gain- be it monetary or just notoriety- and often having the gall to then act like their behavior is on any level acceptable.
So for the little it is worth- Thank you. Thank you for everything. Thank you for your time, your dedication, your talent, and your perseverance. Thank you for all the joy you bring to your fellow fans. Thank you for being mentors and inspiration for others who want to be the future artists. Thank you a million times over. Thank you for every time it wasn’t said.
We are proud of you, we are humbled by you, and we love you.
And @ all of the other artists who I haven’t yet tagged because remembering names is hard. Please know that there are those of us who love and support you, and are truly honored to have you as part of our fandom.
YAY! I’M OPENING COMMISSIONS!! With the holidays just starting, I have way to much time on my hands (and no host club to go to heh) and if I’m going to spend most of that time drawing, it might be nice to make money too :3 And so I give you the AMAZING opportunity of commissioning me :))))
Please remember that I am within my rights to refuse a commission if the commission makes me uncomfortable or I feel I’ll be unable to do it to a high enough standard.
