but i just feel a lot better when people DO tag it

anonymous asked:

Do you have any tips for editing?

i’m… not the best person to talk about this? i hate 80% of what i make tbh. but i guess 

  • always make them for yourself, because you want to and it’s fun. it’s never good when it’s just stress and headache tbh
  • don’t get disappointed if it doesn’t get many notes, it happens
  • if you’re starting out and don’t feel confident with ps or any other program you use, know that you will get better with time
  • be clever while posting and using the tags, only the first five will actually show up in that tag
  • pinterest is really good for finding pics (here’s mine) since people already make lots of boards for characters/books and it makes it easier to find specific pics (i also follow some people with amazing lit/aes boards if you wanna check them out). there’s also weheartit, but it mostly just annoys me lol
  • if you’re making edits using pics you found in the internet, don’t try to make money with them and don’t put adds on your blog. as far as edit makers are concern, it’s okay to use pics (unless the owner of the rights specifically tells you not to) we find, but they’re not legally ours so we can’t make any sort of money with it (and that includes putting ads in the same blog you post the edits, i studied about this in college and you can actually go to jail for breaking owner rights)
  • make them on the ~right~ size: tumblr’s current post width is 540px, so graphics and picspams with 540px width will most likely not look blurry. with covers/posters/etc, try making them a lot bigger than just 270px (i make mine with 500x700px) and they’ll look better
  • you can always tag people (myself included, #alekzandermorozova) in your edits! but maybe ask them first just in case? also some people track something else other than their urls so check it with them first. and you can always tag me in anything! also tag us in the first five tags or we might miss it
  • don’t use parts of other people’s edits, or if you find a pic that’s already been edited, maybe try to find the original one via google search or just another pic in general? it’s really upsetting to see someone else’s using your edit and claiming as their own when it took you so long to edit it tbh
  • and please, please, do not whitewash under any circumstances! it is never okay and it’ll just make people dislike you tbh (also if you ever make soc edits please remember nina zenik is fat and beautiful and proud, sorry i just had to say this)
  • also if you search ph help/ps tutorials/etc on tumblr, lots of helpful blogs will show up, and they have tutorials for everything from the basics to the most complex parts
  • or i’d say playing around with the program is the better way to learn tbh, that’s how i learned (not that i know much). also, i use gimp (it’s like ps but free and i actually love it, ps just annoys me lmao) so if you ever use that and have any questions, hit me up and i’ll try my best to aswer them!

i suck at this so i’ll redirect you to @rykesmeadow, @adampairrsh, @lilaabard and @zoyalina, they make the best edits and probably will know how to help you with the actual editing part lol

From what they’re talking about, it sounds pretty awesome (despite a few aspects) and you’re thinking about visiting this cool place. The person asks you to come with them, but there’s two conditions. 1) Only you can go. 2) If you go, there’s a 50% chance you might not be able to come back to this universe. What is your decision? Why?

I’m tagging @hoyainifinite @chickenyeol @soooldout @flowrsoo @woohyun-ssi @bionic-leesungjong @ifnt-saranghae @cloudyjong @namwoonie @wonhonnie and I can’t think of one more person so if you see this and read through it and you’re not tagged…. you’re the chosen one

Meihem Love

Apparently there’s been a lot of Meihem hate in the tags lately, so I’m here to spread a little love and reassurance. I keep seeing it come up again and again, and it’s making people so unhappy, and I can’t sit by anymore. I just can’t help but be a protective mama hen over all you sweet lil’ nuggets. It may also have something to do with the bourbon I just drank.

When you see Meihem hate, please strive to remember this: you are better than them. This is because you choose to take joy from something that is creative and fun, and they are taking joy in being destructive and hurtful. They could be a troll looking to stir up some bullshit. They could be envious of the awesome things we create. Or it’s possible that they actually believe that they are doing the right thing in calling out a ship they feel is harmful. The why doesn’t matter.

They do not understand us. They do not understand you, or me, or the ship, or what we, as community, have created.

And they never will. They’ve decided that Meihem is something that they don’t like, whatever the reason, and nothing is going to convince them otherwise. And that’s fine. They are entitled to their opinion. That’s their prerogative. It’s not our job to try to change their minds, nor is there really any point in doing so. No work of art or piece of prose that we create, no matter how incredible, is going to convert a dedicated hater.

But there is something that we can do: never give up. Block the haters, scroll past them, do whatever you have to do, but never stop creating, never stop sharing, never stop loving the things that you love just because someone else is being a twat waffle about it.

This community has some amazing people in it. I haven’t encountered a Meihem shipper yet that I did not find to be a genuinely lovely person. There is nothing wrong with you. There is nothing wrong with the ship. We are strong and talented and creative, and we will never stop just because some lonely person with nothing better to do tries to put us down so they can feel better about themselves.

You are wonderful and amazing. Yes, you. You who are reading this right now. I love you.

I won’t stop. I can’t stop. I love this ship too much to let it go. And neither should you. Because that is the only thing that will make them stop. They want us to be silent. They want to shut us down and shut us up.

So stand up and scream. Drown them out. Flood the tag with positivity. When they see that we won’t bow down, when they see that they can’t bait us, when they see that they aren’t getting the attention that they want, they will leave. They’ll move on to a different, easier target.

So take heart, my dear ones. We’re in this together. We have each other. You can come to me with anything. I may not be able to do much, but I will do my best to help.

Know this: every atom in your body was forged in the heart of a star. We are all made of stardust. We are all unique and wonderful. In a thousand galaxies you will not find another like you. And yet, in this wide universe, we all came together over something we love. From across the globe, from a thousand different walks of life, we all found each other. All because of Jamie and Mei.

Never forget that.

Tagged

I got tagged by @serensama for this :) I’m really flattered!

Rules: Tag 9 people you want to get to know better. 

Relationship Status: Single. I’m actually terrible with relationships. I’m still in love with this guy I dated at 13. It doesn’t help that I’m best friends with his sister, his youngest sister loves me (she’s 7, I’ve known her since she was born) and his parents treat me like another child. (FUN FACT: Their names a Kristopher, Anna, and Elsa. Like Frozen. No irl inscest has occured //shot) 

I recently confessed I still liked him in this long-winded text and nothing happened. I’ve seen him since and it’s not awkward. I feel a lot better after getting that out there after practically 5 years of silence. Basically, every relationship I’ve had since has secretly been me trying to move on from him. They all only lasted three months because I’d realize that I still liked that one boy and I would break up with them… They were all too nice for me to pretend I liked them when I knew that wasn’t true (I’m a terrible person imho)

Lipstick or Chapstick: Neither tbh. I always lick my lips so it comes off anyways. I have this one friend who gave a me a TON of lipsticks when she went full vegan. Now I have like 18 different ones lol

Last Movie I Watched: It was Hidden Figures. There aren’t a lot of movies I’m into. I’m a history junkie so I loved this one.

Last Song I Listened to: Election of 1800 from Hamilton… I’m obsessed.

Top 3 TV Shows: I don’t really watch TV. But uh probably Rick and Morty, Futurama, and… that’s it. I watch a lot of documentaries though hah

Top 3 Characters: YOOSUNG, Bucky Barnes, and Thorin from the Hobbit. 

Top 3 Ships: I shipped a lot when I first started reading fanfiction at age 10, but I’m not into that anymore. I’m hella lonely so I want the characters to just love me (god I’m lame). I liked Dramione (don’t judge) and ummmm I watched a lot of Disney crossover videos when I younger and the Tarzan/Ariel ones were the best (;´∀`)

I don’t actually have 9 people to tag, haha.. considering @serensama tagged me first. So @mmscum @doe-eyed-monster and @rfassholes

Solarpunk questing

Or, the answer to a question nobody was asking: How do we prevent ‘small town syndrome” setting in? (If that’s not an actual thing people have researched, it ought to be.)

So I see a lot of posts saying that we should decentralize our society; it will be better for the environment, it’ll allow us to form deeper connections, etc. I agree with all of that. I support it. But there’s a reason that small town America is so feared and loathed by everyone (especially the people who live in one, aka me). 

Traditionally, small towns are close-minded, resistant to change, and unwilling to welcome strangers. How would a solarpunk society, one based on diversity and celebrating multicultural heritages, deal with this potentially isolating town structure?

Okay, here’s my answer: a Wandering. Just imagine that when a kid reaches maturity (anywhere from ages 16-26, whenever the CHILD feels ready) they are sent on basically a world trip. Some of them have specific destinations, and some don’t. For example, my city of Roanoke Virginia has a sister city in South Korea, Wonju. We have a whole street named after Wonju, and they have a whole street named after Roanoke. Imagine that we create closer ties with each other by sending our Wandering youngsters there - it’ll expose them to new cultures and by the end they’ll have travelled across a good portion of the globe.

The point of a Wandering isn’t just to get someplace: many don’t have concrete destinations because the point is in the trip itself. Find new places, see new things. And most important: look for someplace you belong. For a lot of kids, that place could be back at home. But if you don’t fit in where you grew up, your Wandering is your key to freedom. Settle down someplace you belong, even if it takes you years to find it.

Wanderings usually take at least two years; transportation is mostly by foot, bike, or boat. But with the solar trees and smart-phone technology, it would be easy to keep in touch with your folks back home. 

On top of that, people often go Wandering in groups. The kids you grew up with (probably a pretty wide age spread, but waiting for your friends to be ready to Wander isn’t unheard of) will be the ones to go exploring with you. Safety in numbers, and all that. 

Often you would stay in the homes of people willing to host Wanderers, but there might be hostels kept up by the community depending on how often they get travelers. If the town you’re staying in has a lot of Wandering traffic they might keep up a building just for travelers, for example. 

So that’s my collection of thoughts on how we would remain connected to a global community while calling for a return of power to individual communities. Those supporting globalization will call it a paradox: it would be easy to say that our wish for empowered communities means shutting down communication and leads to isolationism. 

I say that the internet has opened doors to communication that we haven’t even touched yet. And a network of communication that extends across the globe is already in place, can be powered by solar energy. Easy.

~ Thank you ~

I just wanna say thanks to all those writers, re-bloggers, posters, and even just the ones who scroll through their feeds.

Tumblr is nothing without you guys. We are able to express how we feel and know that there are millions out there that feel the same.

Writers, I want to thank you for being there and making our day that much better. Your imagination is top notch and you truly don’t get thanked enough for all that you do.
Even if you think you’re bad at writing or that you’re not good with grammar, at least you’re making an effort to make people happy, or feel the feels

Rebloggers, you are everything! You make us happy when you reblog our post and put top quality tags under it. You guys are the ones we really love because you make sure everything is heard and that your opinion is expressed.
Even if you don’t think you’re doing much on tumblr because you’re just reblogging other people’s posts, you’re actually doing a lot, and you’re making people happy

Posters, you make the things we reblog and base our stories on! If you weren’t here, tumblr would be a mess of lost souls
Whether you post pictures of yourself, art, other people, idols, or videos, it doesn’t matter. We need you as the main source to our happiness!

Finally, to the people that are just there
That’s okay, you don’t need to do anything. You don’t need to be internet famous, or blog about everything that happened in your daily lives to be important
You make up the majority of notes on people’s posts, you make us happy because you like our silly quotes or pictures, we’re proud to have you

Thanks to everybody! I’m sorry if any genre got missed, but please know that you are important to us!

I didn’t wanna write this..but,

So, this is regarding the whole AliMor hate/anger people are currently writing in the tag.

Those who continue to say that it was rushed; I do agree it was rather rushed because it was as soon as they had met back up again but can we please remember what kind of world Magi is? If I was under the conditions Alibaba was, it would have felt that hardly any time had passed, If I was dead for practically 3 years despite the whole 100 year mind thing. I would feel like I needed to get a lot of things off my chest, who knows when the next time someone or myself (Alibaba) would face such things as that.? Better to be late than never at all..And that is very realistic to me, how many people have not actually confessed to the one they loved then they had moved away or found someone else? It’s something that will eat at you for a very long time. 
Sure the confession was rushed but we had so many moments between the two formerly. Morgiana had even told Hakuryuu at some point that she loved Alibaba and asked if he knew that, Hakuryuu understood. Yes, he was clearly upset at the end of this chapter but that’s because i’m sure without Alibaba around, He felt his feelings for her were clearly there still and when they had all met back up again, it shocked him to see what he most likely knew would happen some day; happened right before his eyes. His crush was swept off her feet by his friend. To me, that is also very realistic. It’s sad too.
I do feel really bad for Hakuryuu (and have for a long time) but the way he holds himself up now has really made me admire him even more..And I feel like when he meets back up with Judar it will be that much better. He has grown so much.
All i’m asking is, Please don’t bash Ohtaka or the ‘ships’. It doesn’t affect the entire story to Magi and shouldn’t make someone drop a entire 314 chapter series. My time in the Magi fandom has never been this..hateful. I feel like people need to just let it pass and hopefully we WILL see much more development between the two. As for myself, I would have also been happy with any of the ships to be honest, AliKou and/or HakuMor.
AliMor does make the most sense to me (AliKou coming close) but this is Ohtaka’s story. I’d much prefer to have her get the two (AliMor)  together rather than something that literally made almost no sense or had zero romance. (Like Morgiana and Aladdin for example, two who are clearly good friends and that is all.)
things to do when you're bored

I just sent this to my dear friend @udontbescared (idk why it won’t tag?) but I think a lot of people would like this so here it is! I added a few things that I just thought of now, hope this helps!

you could:
-light a candle
-have some tea
-take a bath or shower
-take off all your sheets, wash them and then make your bed (this sounds silly, but it always makes me feel better because after the sheets smell nice, and I cuddle up in them with hot chocolate and watch movies)
-watch movies
-draw what you see from all the windows in your house
-take the bus or the train somewhere and look at the people (draw them too, if you want)
-make lists of your favourite things
-help your family out by doing the dishes or folding clothes (be sure to put on some nice music that you like to make it fun!)
-look for new music (spotify, 8tracks and YouTube playlists are good for this)
-watch YouTube videos
-go out for a little walk (you can pick flowers and take pictures if you like)
-press flowers and leaves
-read a book
-write in a journal or write some poetry
-write nice reminders on paper and go out and tape them around town
-sit on your front step
-watch the clouds
-make a cool healthy snack
-look up recipes
-make a collage
-decorate a notebook
-sing your favourite songs out loud (even if you can’t sing well)
-practice an instrument
-go to a library or coffee shop
-make plans with friends
-make a list of things you want to do before you die, or even just a list of things you want to do in each season (bucketlists essentially)
-plan out which clothes you want and which ones you need
-plan and start a monthly budget so that you can save money
-find some trivia games online and play them
-go in your yard and document the cool bugs and plants that you find
-cut the grass (put on music to make it fun)
-design clothes
-look up your favourite artist online and save your favourite artwork from them on your computer or phone
-trace the bark on the trees (to do this, you put your paper up against the bark on the tree, them scribble over it with your pencil)
-make a list of things you want
-look at a globe and decide where you’d like to visit in the world
-watch cat videos
-do yoga
-meditate
-go out for a run
-kick a soccer ball
-make a letter for yourself to open and read when you’re older
-write a letter to a random address
-go on a bike ride
-make a YouTube video (even if it’s silly)
-walk to the corner store and treat yourself
-jam out to music
-listen to music, close your eyes, and draw what it makes you feel
-make a list of nice reminders to take care of yourself
-make a list all about why you’re a great person (you are, don’t deny it)

One thing it seems like women are expected to do that men aren’t is listening empathetically. Simple things like nodding and replying in ways that encourage people to continue speaking are way more common behaviors among women than men (I know I’ve seen a source for this but tbh it’s a textbook I used to teach in Korea and I can’t exactly link it here).

Once I noticed this, I started trying to apply them to my everyday interactions, and let me tell you, my life is a lot better. At first it felt a little disingenuous because I had to think things like this is when you say “congratulations” but now it feels a lot more natural and I have much more genuine relationships with people.

Plus I learn everyone’s secrets because they say I’m really easy to talk to It just makes your friendships that much stronger. Try it out, other dudes.

You know what?

I’m gonna say this now. I’m in love with the Undertale fandom. Everyday, because I’m a lame nerd, I go through the Undertale tag. Maybe I’m not seeing the bad stuff but all I see is happy people drawing and doing happy things about this wonderful game. Even when I drew things or set things a little differently on this blog (ie - not shipping soriel or whatever and seeing Frisk’s gender a bit differently), I’ve gotten no hate, but only advice and information. I like that. I like that a lot.

I only wish I could say that about other fandoms. You know which ones I’m talking about. I’ve been hearing/seeing so much shit about the SU fandom and the GF fandom. It’s so disheartening that people feel are forced to believe that they can’t enjoy something that makes them happy without being harassed or God forbid lead to attempt suicide.

I just want to say thank you to Undertale and its fandom. Maybe I’m a bit blind, but so far, I like it here in the world of Undertale.

Tripping Over My Own Two Feet

Summary: Daniel Howell is just about the definition of awkward. Every particle of dust or minutely raised floor tile he could possibly trip over he did, and his gangly limbs and tendency to flail expansively when speaking passionately – something he did quite a lot – led to more than a few busted noses and miffed classmates. That combined with his dry, cynical humor led many people to worry for him, as well as the safety of the people he was with. Daniel Howell was a walking hazard, and he knew that well.

Tags/Warnings: Minor injury, loads of fluff

I’m probably gonna receive hate for this but.

The majority of Bellarke fans were supporting and nice after Lexa’s death. We tried our best to make Clexa fans feel better. And if anyone has forgotten about it, there are a lot of people here that can prove it. After just a week I come to look at the Bellarke tag and I only see posts about Clexa. And I’m okay with that. Because those posts are from concerned Bellarkers NOT talking shit about Clexa. And then the tag starts getting overflowed with Clexa fans hating on Bellarke and Bellarkers. Honestly, I am disgusted! You don’t know what will happen in the future for Bellarke. It might be nothing! We let you enjoy your Clexa moments, when we didn’t have ours.Guess what, we STILL haven’t received our moments. Most of us are here just sitting, waiting for a freaking HUG! What you guys are doing is disrespectful to us.

Forget about JASON! Be nice to the people who were nice to you!

Okay I don’t care if you crybabies who don’t care about Black ppl problems want to call this “drama” but...

Don’t come onto my blog or into my IM and say this shit to me!!

Sims3melancholic, I LOVE how suddenly, in your private IM, you’re typing in English a lot better than when you were trying to spam comments onto my posts. 

I don’t care if you feel like being called out on doing something racist is an insult because “you” as a White person, don’t feel like what you did is racist. I don’t give a flying fuck how many Black friends you have and you feel it makes you “colorblind”. Don’t tell me people don’t think about skin color when they see someone because skin color is apart of my culture. Just because you want to forget the racism Brown and Black people face from people like you doesn’t mean I should be silent on it here on simblr. I’m a real life fucking Black person and this shit effects me. From the blatant racism to police shoots, to the acts of cultural appropriation that you so conveniently don’t believe exists: IT ALL EFFECTS ME. Don’t tell me that I should sweep examples of prejudice and racism under the rug because “there’s enough of it in real life”. Don’t fucking tell me to forget about this shit.

Don’t come onto my blog and tell me how “tired” you are of seeing things about racism when in the span of not even 24 fucking hours TWO Black people have been innocently shot and killed by WHITE PEOPLE for doing something while being Black. You think you’re fucking tired???? I’m tired of my people being shot and taken advantage of with no White people in the world’s government caring enough to actually want to bring their killers to justice!! Do you even understand how much it hurts to hear other people tell us to forget about this stuff because it makes you uncomfortable?? You don’t understand the pain of being Black in the year 2016, 153 years after the end of slavery and a mere 48 years after the Civil Rights Movement and outlawing of racial segregation and STILL seeing people like you die in the streets by the hands of White people who have grown up with ancestors and relatives who have hated you for generations because of your race. You don’t have to rally and protest JUST to get justice for you people when you’re White! I don’t give a fuck if you think this is something that’s only a “problem in America” because it fucking isn’t. 

Don’t try to fucking dictate to me how I should “respect your opinion” when I and other Black people are telling you that what you’re doing is racist or problematic to us and our well-being. I don’t care about your opinion if its racist and White biased! If you don’t want to see my posts about your fucking racist ass antics that you STILL AREN’T SORRY FOR, then stay the fuck off my page. Don’t talk to me. Sims3melancholic, you came to my blog because someone who follows you, told you that I got an ask that had your name on it, asking if I followed you and your asshole friend. I said I don’t follow either of you but you decided to mosey on over and bring up what you did with a “Haha so this makes me racist??” and I don’t care how much victim blaming and whining you want to throw about it after I reminded you what you did either. I haven’t followed either you or @osacuveiasims since that hair debate when you so openly supported the trolling of a Black Pride tag by reblogging the first person to attack it. So if you’re so #TiredOfBlackSimblr and our #BlackPeopleProblems then GET THE FUCK OFF OUR PAGES!

To the rest of simblr and my followers who care:

I’ve seen your supportive comments. I was going to ignore the rest of the bullshit that Sims3Melancholic came onto my page and started but when I woke up to this after all that’s happened in the world in the past 48 hours, I couldn’t just ignore it. If I don’t get things like this off my chest it will drive me insane because it makes me SO FUCKING ANGRY. I will go back to my regularly scheduled program after I calm down some.

How do you keep the rainbows?

I get asked a lot about how I’m so positive all the time. Well, I’m not always in real life…just ask my husband. I worry. I get angry. I vent. I’m human. In general though, I have a very positive outlook on life. I’m a glass half full kind of girl. 

But when it comes to fandom life - yes, I really am happy 98% of the time. Rainbows and unicorns almost full time. So when people ask me why or how this is my response….

Stay in your lane. Blog/tweet what you love. Ignore what you hate. No drama.

Attention Tumblr: I Want Your Selfies!

I’m doing a project for my art final and the theme is ‘people being themselves’ so I has the idea to do a collection of people’s selfies since I feel like a lot of time they show people’s personalities better than pictures taken by other people. Mirror pics and selfies containing multiple people are also good, as long as the photographer is someone in the picture.

I will be showing the pictures to my class as part of my final presentation, and depending on how it goes I might try to make the project more public and/or commercial. If you’re only comfortable with your picture(s) being used for academic purposes, you can let me know when you send them.

If you’re comfortable with it, I would also love it if you could include your name and hometown, or even just one of those if that’s easier, since I’m gonna use those to caption the photos.

You can submit your pics to my inbox or email them to me at suzzihammi@gmail.com. Even if you aren’t comfortable with me using your photos, please signal boost so I can get as many as possible. I need to have all the ones I’m using for the project submitted by November 10th, but if you wanna submit something later than that I might do a second round of the project or something, depending on it’s success.

Thanks so much for all your help!

You Can Fandom

I just saw a post in one of my followed tags about the people in fandom who feel like they can’t do anything and are sitting on the outskirts. I want to say clearly that yes, yes you can create. Come on and play. I do think that fandom can be really intimidating, but you can write, edit, gif, draw or anything else you put your mind to.

When you’re looking at content creators, you don’t see the years of practice that went into it. If you get started and work at it, then you will get better.

Now. You hear this a lot, I’m sure. That doesn’t make it real for you and you assume people had talent to start. So…to my great and terrible embarrassment, I dove into my old accounts. Here’s where I was a little over a decade ago compared to now with some stops along the way. My shame is below the cut:

full offense, but would it kill you to ask before doing this shit?

like, it cost you $0 to turn to someone and say “hey, i know you made this character week with this specific rule that i feel like it limits me, would you mind if i made an alternative week for people who wants to make other content like me?”

and the answer would most likely be “sure, whatever, just use another tag and maybe other prompts because i worked hard to come up with them”

and there you go, you have a week that you like better without actively ruining it for others

you cannot claim that you made this shit so that it’s fun for everyone and not to compete with other character’s week when you are actively invading other people’s safe space and ruining their harmless fun 

this is the second time you lot did this, and i just can’t fucking believe how fucking immature you are considering how quick you raise your voices to call us whiny children  

“Time races, faces fade past you - so many thoughts, so much to do, but so little too. It looks dark, but… Maybe these will help? They say they are like the sun. They light the world up when the sun doesn’t show. Can I give you some? You deserve them. You deserve to be standing in their light. Please smile. I’ll help you, I promise.”

This is something I made in a real hurry. Only in order to keep my thoughts at bay, for even just a couple of minutes… And I just wanted to thank some people. I feel really shy about posting this, but I have no idea in what other ways I can say thank you. ;u;’ I’ve had a hard time with my mother being sick, and I haven’t slept much these days… And I must say, after I dared to get more involved with the people trapped in the “Apocoleypse”, I’ve felt a lot better. I’ve started to write seriously in English again, to draw more and keep on with it… It really helps. Just to escape a little bit, if only for a short time. Thank you. Thank you so incredible much. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve smiled because of you guys.

I’ve gotten some new, wonderful friends - and some I don’t know as much as I would’ve liked to. i’m so sorry for being shy and awkward ;u; But I want to dedicate this little sketch to those out there. To my friends, mutuals, and everyone else in this fandom. I’m going to tag some of you - but this goes out for everyone. Just a little thing to let you know that you’re not alone, even if it seems like you’re trapped in your various struggles. There’s always a way out, and better days ahead. Trust me, I know. <3 And I know that you all can get there! 

The ones I would like to tag here are: aeolian-mode (and check out apocoleypse too, by her!), alis-coles, xthexforgottenxboyx, fade-lobstercogswithnooil, esuerc, bloody–bunny and olibathore. Thank you, and for the kind replies earlier! ;u; You are all wonderful!
