Judge asks Sanji, why he saved them. he tells him that Zeff wouldn’t have liked it if he let them die.
Sanji screams at Judge, to tell him that he is not his father and that he will never show his face to the Straw Hats again. Judge swears he will never get near the Straw Hats or East Blue, and he says that Germa 66 will provide protection until the others have escaped.
Germa 66 vs. the Big Mom Pirates.
Luffy and Sanji jumps out of Bege’s castle to save Reiju from Big Mom’s attack.
Today also marks the show of solidarity for women’s rights by way of a strike: A Day Without A Woman. Women around the world are refusing to take part in both paid and unpaid labor in the name of justice for all gender-oppressed people of all ethnicities, religions, and sexualities. In doing so, they join the ranks of women who have led protests, strikes, and movements throughout history.
Let’s celebrate a few of those women:
Dorothy Height (March 24, 1912—April 20, 2010)
Dorothy Height, former President of the National Council of Negro Women, was one of the organizers of the 1963 March on Washington. She stood near Martin Luther King Jr. during his “I Have a Dream” speech, but did not publicly speak that day. In fact, no woman publicly spoke. “Even on the morning of the march there had been appeals to include a woman speaker,” wrote Height in her memoir. “They were happy to include women in the human family, but there was no question as to who headed the household!“ In 1971, she helped found the National Women’s Political Caucus with other notable feminists like Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, and Shirley Chisholm.
Marsha P. Johnson (August 24, 1945—July 6, 1992)
Marsha P. Johnson spent her entire adult life fighting for the rights of LGBTQ people. She’s credited for being one of the first to fight back in the Stonewall Riots. She started the Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries with her friend Sylvia Rivera. Together they provided food, shelter, and care to young drag queens, trans women, and homeless children in need in the Lower East Side of NYC. She fought for what was right, and knew how to live life with exuberance and humor. When asked by a judge what what the “P” stood for, she replied “Pay It No Mind.”
Alice Paul (January 11, 1885—July 9, 1977)
Alice Paul was one of the leading forces behind the Nineteenth Amendment, which affirmed and enshrined a woman’s right to vote. She rallied 8,000 people to march in the 1913 Woman Suffrage Procession in Washington—no small task in a world before the internet—with an estimated half million people watching the historic moment from the sidelines.

“He’s an actor on Broadway. I broke up with him in December because he couldn’t manage his anger. He’d scream at me on subway platforms. Once he busted my lip while trying to grab something out of my hand. That was when I finally ended it. But he called me on New Year’s Eve and asked if he could go to a party with me. We’d bought our tickets months earlier. They were expensive so I agreed. My sister was coming with us so I wasn’t worried. Everyone had a great time. …At the end of the night, we dropped off my sister and went back to his place. I was so drunk that I curled up in a pile of clothes. When I opened my eyes he was taking photos of me and laughing. I immediately decided to leave. It was literally the start of a new year and I wanted to begin on a good note. He yelled at me to come back but I kept walking. He followed me down the stairs and grabbed my arm. He told me to ‘stop acting stupid.’ Then he pinned me up against the side of his building. He was choking me and saying ‘calm down, calm down, calm down.’ A van drove by and started honking at us. But they didn’t stop. They didn’t help me. I broke free and ran into traffic but nobody was stopping. He caught me, and pushed me up against a van, and lifted me into the air by the neck. When I woke up on the ground he was gone. I asked the judge to sentence him to anger management courses. He’s finished them. But I’m still dealing with the trauma of that night.”
pleaseee could you write drabble, Emma saying to Killian "I didn't know you could sing"
unrelated to the upcoming musical ep, but here ya go. sorry it’s rather messy. drabble became ficlet.
Emma has never really lived with a guy before. Well, she supposes that she and Neal did kind of live together in the Bug all those years ago, but this is different.
This is sharing a home.
And with that comes a few adjustments. Neither of them have ever owned very many possessions aside from their full wardrobes, but now they have this big house and it’s being slowly but surely filled with… things. Stuff. Books and trinkets on their shelves, an array of colorful toiletries and pretty things in their bathrooms, an admittedly overly stocked cabinet of alcohol, blankets and pillows meant not just for function but also for decoration.
She’s a bit disorganized and messy. Killian is kind of a neat freak after having run his own ship for so long.
Exactly 100 years ago today, on May 29, John F. Kennedy was born. He was the youngest man to ever take the office as President of the United States. His term in office would last only 1036 days, tragically cut short by the assassination that claimed his life, but his influence and presence are still felt today.
Originally, John F. Kennedy wanted to be a writer or a teacher. He only ventured into politics after the death of his eldest brother Joe. In many ways, one could say that he helped write history and set out to teach the world about his own ideas. He was an idealist: one of the main points of his presidency would be to aid innovation, imagination, and invention. He is known for some great speeches, but the man himself did not have patience for idle chitchat that had no basis in reality. He set goals and always asked to be judged by the results those plans would provide.
In some people’s opinion, no other President had a greater vision of what America should be than the vision Kennedy had for his nation. Never has his own quote “a man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on” been more true than on this day upon which we remember his life and legacy.
But honestly, I’m not actually too happy with those anymore. They’re pretty old. I still sort of hold the same value when I draw them, but here’s some more updated tips, if that’s alright.
One of the biggest complaints I got with those tips was that just a single tear is good enough. Well yes and no. Tears are just a helpful tool, and of course not everyone cries the same, so yes, a single tear can be just as impactful, as long as your emotion and context carries the message.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, there’s heavy crying. And this can take many forms. Again, the face has to carry the intensity of the emotion; the tears are just there to emphasize it. More intensity, (for some people) does tend to include more liquids and leaking.
And of course none of it has to be perfect or even. As I love to touch on, crying is messy and ugly. It brings out the most strained emotions. So none of it has to be symmetrical to get the point across- if anything, it gives it more movement.
I of course draw in a more cartoony fashion, so if you did want to go on the more realistic end of the spectrum, you can focus on the actual physics of tears and how they act and react on the face. More realistically, they come from the inner eye, and are much smaller. They tend to fall in wayward paths, slowly, but sperraticly, and in droplets or thin streams. You can also add streak marks and flush up the face, depending on the subject.
I’m glad you liked my old tips, and I hope these new ones help!
To say my grandmother was eccentric is an exercise in gross understatement. Particular to the point of painful, she needed everything done just so, or she would throw impressive fits, and claim she would never speak to the perpetrator again.
