body hair movement

To me, resilience is the capacity to recover quickly and return to one’s original state of being after experiencing adversity and/or confinement.
It is the ability to overcome obstacles and break barriers whether they’re personal, social or cultural in nature.
In our society, the standards of beauty are old, exhausted and restricting. Female body hair is so out of the norm in our society that we forget shaving is actually a choice.
Moss, like body hair, pops up just about everywhere. And they’re comparable in that if we try to remove them, they’ll quickly grow right back.
So why resist nature?

Lawlight feels? Hm okay. Imagine them showering together late at night, L hasn't slept in forever and SOMEHOW they end up actually talking to each other? As in, maybe even deep or heartfelt conversations. (use it as a prompt or whatever, I just think about it a lot)

You sent this in months ago and I’m still having Lawlight feels ugh does it ever end? I’m kidding, I don’t want it to ever end. I hope you enjoy this @flareontoast

It was late. Or rather, it was early morning. For the last few hours, Light had been trying desperately to get L to go to bed, to sleep, because he’d been practically falling asleep where he sat. Light was tired, too, but he was willing to put that aside for L.

His feelings for L had grown into something that slightly unsettled him when he cared to stop and think about it. As it was, he was almost certain that whatever it was, L felt something similar.

“Come on, L. Shower.” He stood and pulled L with him. His eyes were lidded, his face even more pale than it usually was, and Light had to almost carry L to their en-suite bathroom. He undressed them both, unbothered that both of them were naked - it was just skin, after all, and got the shower switched on. 

By this time, L was almost completely asleep, though he was able to wash his own hair and body, his movements sluggish and lacking all the usual daintiness with which L interacted with the world.

L’s inhibitions were lowered and so Light took advantage of that, asking the other man the first question that came to mind.

“If I was Kira, what would you do upon finding out?” He was curious, he realised, though he had to keep the hope repressed, already suspecting the answer.

“I would turn you in, of course. Kira is the world’s greatest criminal at the present date.”

Light repressed a sigh. It figured.

“Good thing I’m not Kira, then.” He grinned, lathering up his hair.

L hummed thoughtfully, not paying attention. “We shall see, Light-kun.”

“If… If duty wasn’t important to you, hypothetically speaking, then would you turn me in or would you keep me under surveillance just like I am now?”

Light found himself hanging onto L’s every word, trying to find a way to make this, make them, work.

L was silent for a time, his head tilted up to the showerhead. Light felt the sudden urge to kiss the pale skin and mark it as his own.

“In such a situation, I would keep you with me, though it would be a punishment. You would help me on cases. You are, after all, my intellectual equal and it would be a waste for you to rot in prison.”

Silence fell and Light felt like he was going to vomit.

“L… This thing between us, the glances and the talks. Do you think they could ever amount to anything?”

At that, L’s gaze sharpened as he examined Light’s face, searching for something. He seemed to find it, for he smiled slightly and said, “It could, Light-kun, had we met under different circumstances.”

“What about now?” Light sounded desperate even to his own ears, so goodness knew what L was hearing.

L hummed again and Light counted himself lucky that L was taking the time to have a real conversation with him, weighting his questions seriously.

“It is true that you are my only real friend, Light-kun, but you are my prime suspect and therefore there is a conflict of interest.”

All at once, Light wished he’d never picked up that stupid black notebook. How could this happen to me? He bit down on his rising anger and said, “But I am not Kira!”

L gave Light his customary ‘really?’ look, making the younger man sigh.

“I’m done here.” Light had indeed finished and stepped out, wrapping a towel around his hips and waiting for L.

The two men dried and dressed and went to bed, Light following L’s lead. They laid down side by side, untouching, separated by could-would-should and the wall of unspoken words that lay between them.

Just as Light was drifting to sleep, he thought he felt L’s perpetually cold fingers wrap around his own under the cover and a whispered, “I am sorry, Light-kun.”

Light was asleep before he could respond.

For @animationdesk​‘s animation exercise 8. I had fun doing this, and also learned some things that i didn’t consider during the process.

with the first two; there are too many frames which are making the animation look clunky. This kind of surprised me as i was taught that more frames make an animation more fluid. I realise now that my understanding was geared more towards film & tv based animation, and that animation in games and such benefit from a more key-by-key style of animating. Something to take away from this is that not every medium does animation in the same way, and it’s important to do your research!

The final product is a definite improvement to the previous, but there are still things such as line boiling, small details, and generally more solid drawing that could have been improved if i’d had more time. I haven’t been able to work on this as much as i wanted bc i’m now working, but in any case i’m glad i finally managed to do one of these exercises!

If you're a "body positivity advocate" then why did you change your body?

Well first of all if we’re talking just on a medical level, the excess skin was a hazard to my health. It got irritated often and induced rashes. It made it impossible to do most cardio workouts or physical activities for extended periods of time without risk of overheating.

But let’s ignore all that for a moment.

You’re operating under the false assumption that the body positivity movement is about telling people they’re perfect and should never change. Changing your body is making an aesthetic change, more involved but no different than making changes to your style or your hair.

The body positivity movement is about telling people that they have value the way they are, that their body types are valid and don’t make them ugly, and that growth is a good thing when do for the right reasons: because YOU want to.

The body positivity movement is about understanding that change and growth are natural parts of life, and that as long as those changes are rooted in a place of love and kindness to yourself, as long as those changes are something you want to do to continue growing as a person, then those changes are good.

I got the procedure done because I fucking wanted to. I didn’t feel like a monster anymore because of my body, but the next step in my development was to have the skin removed so I could learn my body separate from the remnants of the weight I lived with for so much of my young life, and I wasn’t going to not get it to appease some closed minded view of what the movement I fight for is about.

If you want surgery, if you want bigger breasts or to remove excess skin or a nose job, as long as you understand that you are still beautiful and important now and that decision is about improving yourself rather than “fixing a problem,” it’s a body positive move. You have my support.
