but i think it's better that way

So I went to sleep and woke up this morning feeling a lot less angry over the Not Today situation. I still think what they did to Jin was unfair, embarrassingly so, and that he deserved better than that. Without a doubt (Whatever you think about the mv, only 1 second of individ screen time for a member of the group is just unacceptable in any MV). But I needed a bit of distance. Because this is a k-pop band. Even if I love them, it’s not something to get that upset over. (I also had a real shitty day yesterday–someone keeps stealing my food.)

But I think the outrage was probably big enough that BigHit would have heard it, and well there’s not a lot that we can do anyway. Just hope that he will have fair share in the future and try to love on him as best we can. I don’t want Jin to feel guilty or uncomfortable for all this, I’m sure he has his own feelings and thoughts about it and we can’t know what happened behind the scenes. A win for BTS is a win for Jin, at the end of the day. 

Rather than let this divide the fandom, I hope that it’s a reminder to love our dorky, pun-wielding foodie sweetheart hyung Jin and show him as much love as you can, so he can hear about our support for him, rather than our fights with bighit or ourselves (or other fandoms).

hi sry if this is stupid im thinking bout studying animation but for a masters degree. is it ok if my bachelor is completely irrelevant or is it true that they prefer/favor people who've studied arts/ computer science before? from what i've heard its difficult to get in as it is, so im afraid of making my chances slimmer this way..

Hello!! I think that depends which animation school you’re going for. Personnaly I went to study animation right after high school, but then again my school isn’t very prestigious (and it’s not a university). However I’m pretty sure that your background isn’t as important as your portfolio. If you can draw, you can get in. Sometimes people go into arts first to get better, to help them make it into animation (I have a ton of friends who did this) so if you think it might be necessary for you then go for it! Don’t think of it as time lost not studying animation, because you’ll use that time to learn and improve your artistic skill. Either way I suggest that you at least apply to a few animation programs. If you don’t get in you will probably get feedback on what you need to improve first, and also you mihht get in right away, you never know!!! Good luck friend!!!

(For the mun(?), just going to tell you that I'm really enjoying this thing with sans XDDD. Also rip papyrus.)

Yay! I’m enjoying this too. I didn’t think it would go this way (at least not so soon)—I mean it was mostly meant to give everyone a glimpse into the Underworth world and a few of its characters, as well as help me get a better handle on writing/understanding them—but I’m glad it’s entertaining some people too.

Of course, none of these events are canon to the story I’m planning to write, and there may end up being notable differences between the two, so this could go in all sorts of directions without spoiling too much. :)

The Baudelaire’s refusal to be grateful for their unfortunate events seemed like such a good message for kids - so I made a thing.

a page of seijou doodles

i am constantly growing as a person and i’m very thankful for it.. i just.. love myself? in the most sincere way. i am aware of my flaws, and i accept them, but i don’t encourage them. i allow myself to make mistakes, and forgive myself for them, but push myself to learn from them and use the experience to become better. i am understanding of my limits, but i also make myself take chances sometimes, because i also know i’m capable of more than i’d like to think i am.. and sometimes, the only way to grow is to make yourself… i don’t have it all figured it out, and i still have a long way to go, in my own personal journey, but i’ll be there with myself every step of the way. and that’s a very nice thought.

I have something to say.

When I was in elementary school, we had a holocaust survivor come to talk to us about her experiences. Before she left she said something to us that I never forgot. She said “No one person can fight for all causes at once. Putting concentrated effort in a few causes is better than putting the barest of effort while trying to cover them all” And she challenged us to pick 3-5 causes that we will spend our lives fighting for and learning about and commit to them as best we can.

Of course the context was such that it was clear that if there is a Major Event occurring which needs immediate attention, definitely hyperfocus on that. But the point that she made still stuck and I think that in this current environment its wise to think about your activism in this way.

As children of the information age, we pride ourselves on being able to know the most up to date information on everything around us. Its easy to get overwhelmed when you know that there are so many causes to fight for and so many people and things being desecrated or hurt. In most cases, being overwhelmed creates anxiety that leads to inaction. And inaction is something no one needs.

Let us look at ourselves and look at our values and each choose 3-5 things that we want to make sure we become knowledgeable about, and 1 thing we want to fight for, then focus our energy on them at Maximum Intensity. Now….of course all aspects of oppression are irrevocably linked. I talk about that on here all the time. But more potent activism on your few causes lets you have the focus you need to really make waves.

You care a lot about the environment? learn about fixing it. Invent something. You care about healthcare? Put your all into saving it. You care about politics? vaguely consider becoming a politician. Acknowledge that there are other issues at hand, and that they require work, but focus on your causes. Make these next 4 years count in regards to the issues you feel matter the most.

If you see one of your causes has a huge amount of people fighting for it and they seem to be making good headway, find another cause that seems to be flagging and needs a boost. Keep your causes down to 3 - 5. If you don’t have time or energy, lower that number to 1-2 but increase your vigilance on those 1-2 things.

If we work together and focus, we can make sure things get covered without succumbing to intellectual exhaustion or depression.

We are a huge generation. We are smart, we are creative, we are resilient. We come up with ever increasing solutions to many many problems that were once thought to be unsolvable. We are so empathetic and brave and strong.

We can do this.

My country is celebrating 100 years of independence this year and we are also achieving marriage equality on the 1st of March. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our achievements as a nation than celebrating equality and human rights. Congratulations, Finland, may there be many more victories such as this and may your freedom last a thousand years!

(yes, the Finnish flag appears backwards because she’s waving it around)

We don’t talk anymore (x).

Whatever you do, don’t think about Oikawa and Iwaizumi going their separate ways and losing touch. 

I know that SuperCorp is very unlikely to happen because Sanvers is already a thing, but between us… that’s bullshit.

Tv shows should always aim to reach out for the audience, capturing their interest - on a side trying to represent them and on the other trying to surprising them. We’re getting a hint of representation of the LGBT community (and I’m not saying LGBTQA+, because that part of the community is practically nonexistent according to the media) right now, which is definitely not enough, and what we get is rarely a quality product (for the most part, we’re used to make jokes, which isn’t representation, but more likely cheap comedy). We frequently get little screen-time, poor character development (he’s gay, what else is there to say?) and yes, we often get to DIE too (for the benefit of famous “shock value”… which doesn’t shock anybody, really, since it happens almost all the time). What we don’t get is main roles, good backstories, characters who are not only defined by their sexual orientation and… well, to live, to grow and get to be happy on screen (what an absurd concept, am I right?).

Supergirl has done an incredible job by representing Alex Danvers’ coming out story: it showed its audience how a strong, brave woman like Alex can still be very fragile and struggle with this kind of realization; how she fears to accept herself, to be fully herself and out with the people she cares the most about, and more importantly how things can actually go well. This is damn important, ‘cause it helps a lot of people to think that “Hey, maybe my family won’t take it this badly” or “Maybe my friends will accept me” and “Maybe things will change for the better!”, ‘cause guess what? IT CAN HAPPEN AND IT HAPPENS! But this is not very interesting to show, apparently, ‘cause most of the time it’s all freaking dramatic and it ends in tragedy.

The new generations are already lucky, ‘cause now there is something like this (Supergirl) on Tv, but it’s not enough still, ‘cause they’re portraying a tiny fragment of their audience, of the people around the world, and if you think “But it’s a lot already”, I’m gonna tell you that the straights have every single damn shade from every single damn angle for their representation on screen, while we are barely there and almost never the main character or anything close to that. Yes, there are movies in which we are protagonists, but let’s be real, they’re almost always centered on our sexual orientation, the discovery and the consequences, which is helpful and good to see, but it’s not everything there’s to see and to know. Plus, they really abuse of the dramatic factor of it in order to “send a message”, but that’s a message wasted on the straights, and if they think you’re an abomination already, surely a movie won’t change their minds. Instead, it will just fuel fear in us, which - there’s no really need to say it - it’s bad (we unfortunately have reality for that).

I remember my probably very first approach to the whole “girls liking girls” thing thanks to the media.
I was a kid and I was watching this movie on the Tv. I remember only pieces of it, ‘cause I don’t think I was paying much attention until a certain point. What I still recall, though, stuck in my head for a reason.
There were two girls, one white and the other brown, that grew closer to each other (I seriously don’t remember anything about whatever was the rest of the story). I recall this very specific scene that had me and my sister (who was also watching) like: “Oh, they are helping each other undressing ‘cause they’re friends”. When they started making out we were like “Oh… Okay, so they’re not just friends, apparently”, and that was it. I don’t think we knew about all the hatred towards people of same sex being in love with each other, to us it was just like “Okay, this is a thing that exists: acknowledged”. They seemed to be fine, so there was no issue… right? WRONG!
The white girl’s brother saw them, got angry as shit, took a gun and started shooting at them. They got into a car, trying to get away from him, but he got into another and started chasing them. It was raining, they were scared as shit, he looked insane, I felt the anguish growing inside of me: it was awful (again, I was a kid at the time).
The car slipped, then fell down a bridge into a river/lake and it quickly sank. After a while, only the white girl emerged from the water. The other drowned.
Last scene that I remember was a time jump where the white girl was a now a white granny, and she was probably remembering this terrible thing that happened to her once.

No fucking wonder if growing up I didn’t want to be gay and I pushed down my feelings and thoughts, since this is the kind of message to which I was subjected. And now? Now there are some things that portray the whole “being gay” as normal (as it always should be) and not in a dramatic, catastrophic way, but it’s also true that we get shows like The 1OO, Person of Interest, Orange Is The New Black, Pretty Little Liars, The Walking Dead and many, many, many others where the lesbian freaking dies, where there is no happy ending for us.

It’s simply not okay.

But to finally address the very main reason why I started this post - that no one will read ‘cause it’s too long, and people have time only for thoughts as long as a tweet - is the importance to acknowledge the presence of MORE THAN ONE GAY CHARACTER in a story. In a story AND in a family. Yes, as crazy as it sounds, we are more than two and we indeed can have LGBTQA+ wonderful siblings. Madness, right? Except that it’s not, it’s our reality, which is way more colorful, interesting and beautiful than the arid one-sided representation we witness on daily basis (I’m talking about heteronormative).

So, what really drives me nuts, it’s not the fact that people seem to be scared shitless to insert us in anything (although we’re everywhere), but how little crafty they are. We have proven to be a real force of nature over the whole LGBT Fans Deserve Better initiative, which raised by far $166,547 for the Trevor Project, and we did that after being smacked down once again by showrunners. Can you imagine what we could do if people were fair to us, for a change? We’re loyal, passionate, absurdly creative and talented (have you ever seen our fanArts, read our fanfictions? They’re often better than the original stuff and we don’t get paid a coin for making them), and yet we hardly get anything.

Tv shows should listen to their audience and get smart, because it’s not a pink UFO the thing we’re asking for, it’s not something that won’t fit their story, but simply more good representation. Supergirl scored with Sanvers, but there’s still so much potential that is sadly going to waste, and if they opened their eyes they would see it.

Do you want a great, original idea? Be fair and listen.

So like, there’s that pseudo-historical story that gets repeated that when the conquistadors arrived in Mexico they were regarded as white-skinned gods, which you would think on the surface is so ridiculous and self-congratulatory no one would buy it but its still repeated in high school classrooms across the country. I counter that there were way better, real stories that y’all have never heard, that disprove this idea of ignorant natives with no clue who or what these white men were. (These are from Bernal Diaz’s firsthand account The Conquest of New Spain, itself obviously not an impartial source but not as steeped in myth as later accounts)

1. When Cortez’s ships first approached the Mexican coast, they were greeted by cries of Castilan! Castilan! (aka Castilian, as in the Castile region of Spain) This is because a good while prior two Spaniards had become marooned in that area after a shipwreck. One, a priest, scorned the locals but learned some of the language, serving as Cortez’s translator until Malinche became his mistress. The other “went native,” joining the local tribe and adopting their culture. When the Spanish arrived, the priest asked if he wanted to come join Cortez, to which the other man refused, as he now had married an indigenous woman, had children, and received the tattoos and piercings common to local warriors. He would go on to die fighting the Spanish when they later waged a genocidal campaign against that region’s population, with a statue in the area honoring his memory to this day. 

2. The idea that the Spanish looked totally dissimilar, to the point of seeming like “white-skinned gods,” is extra ridiculous when you learn that one of the tribe fighting along side Cortez (the Spanish won much less for their “advanced technologies, which amounted to about 8 muskets and a rusty cannon, and much more for the 500,000 Mexican allies they rallied against the Aztecs, whose numbers were soon decimated by the biological calamity of smallpox) there was an indigenous man who looked so similar that they began to joke about “our Cortez” and “their Cortez.”

Idk, that book is one of the first things that got me into history, and I would much rather relay random anecdotes from it to my tumblr peeps than write my final papers rn :p

Day 3: Daisy - Faith

Something ‘bout the meaning of daisies.. (´‿`✿) New beginnings, childhood, keeping a secret out of care for someone dear to them. I wanted to convey that through Kanan and Mari, about their bond and past. They must’ve had faith in one another to hopefully understand each other’s actions, but of course, talking it out is best for making one’s truest feelings known. (^^;)

I was so absorbed in the Valentine’s Day spirit today that I sketched up some more, this time for classic literature (because plays are heckin rad)

Vent art

I’m sorry if the imagery is disturbing…. I rarely publish things like these,ms paint kind of gave me chance to try turn the negative into actual (VERY)quick clean artform, to rely some message or emotion. Vent art is a great tool, it is personal and might be criptic, so people can find what they want in it, maybe bringing them some delight from their own pain? I don’t like to publish gore for the sake of it, nor spread sads, so whenever I do publish these for you to see - it’s only because I like how the art turned out and I want to share it with you. So hopefully I didn’t make anyone sad or worry, it’s simply artwork, part of me (maybe not that nice part but I’m also only human >.< ). So hope you can enjoy it without disgust or feeling bad from it or for me - no need to! I like this kind of aesthetic too! *EDIT* venting is great on paper! It works much better to release pressure.

virgo moons dont seem to get a lot of love on here but i think its one of the sweetest placements. there is no other who is as attentive and helpful and happy to serve than a virgo moon. they notice all the little things that you dont and take care of you in so many subtle ways that you might hardly notice. you never have to ask a virgo moon for help, they are always one step ahead of you. and unlike cancer, there are no strings attached to virgo’s acts of kindness. they simply do it because they enjoy it - they like to feel like they have made things better for their loved ones, and your happiness and appreciation is reward enough. virgo moons have a reputation of being cold but the virgo moons i know dont see themselves that way. they’d say ‘of course i’m not emotionally distant or detached, i love you, i do things for you all the time.’ because virgo moons figure that the best way to convey their feelings is through action, rather than whispered sweet nothings and empty romantic gestures. and they would be right! but there are other aspects to intimacy that virgo moons aren’t so good at, and thats where they get the reputation for being cold. such as, opening up and expressing your emotions whether they are good or bad. crying without being embarrassed in front of the people that love you. telling your loved ones what you love about them and how much they mean to you. virgo moons struggle with that. they are private and self-critical people, most often, and for this reason they have almost a kind of disdain towards certain emotions - usually sadness, anger, guilt, even sentimentality. they dont like to confront or express these messy parts of themselves, because what good is that for anyone? but virgo moons should know that the people that love you want to love all of you, the good; the bad; the happy; the sad; the soft; the callous; the intense and the dark. there is no part of you that is an inconvenience. you are beautiful, kind souls, virgo moons. 🌙✨
