but i'm just so excited about these girls

Ok, but why aren’t more people in on the “sombra is the little girl from the ‘Hero’ short” train??

It makes perfect sense, she’s been described as the biggest unrealiable narrator in the OW universe, so her age could be just a lie and she’s actually younger, after all, most of the information we know of her backstory is what she tells us in her origin video + her age but not her actual name, and since she’s an unreliable narrator she could… not be telling the whole truth??. 

She says she was orphaned but that could have happened after Hero, her mom died for some reason and she had to join Los Muertos to survive because of her abilities, she is from Dorado, where the short takes place like you just don’t have two characters be from the same place if there’s no relation between them?? She has a dialogue in-game with Soldier where she asks him “Why didn’t you save my home?” like that implies that she knows him and is bitter with him for some reason?? 

She has a mole that the girl didn’t have and purple eyes, but a) her eyes change colour in her skins so it’s probs just contacts, b) we know she got surgeries to get cybernetic augmentations, maybe she got her face altered so that the people she was hiding from wouldn’t recognise her?

When she’s in Dorado in-game, she says “back home, I should stop by the bakery” a bakery is what the GIRL’S MOM IN THE SHORT RAN. Also in her origin video she is shown offering a basket full of bread to some guy who’s computer she’s about to hack… Like she could be referring to another bakery sure, but that’s too much of a coincidence. Like, why put it in her dialogue if she has nothing to do with the girl of the short?? If she’s not that girl they’re sisters or something

Hi! I was just wondering if you had sources on Louisa May Alcott's sexuality? She was my favourite childhood author and I'm so excited to discover that she wasn't straight!

i originally found out about it through some tag comments left on my ‘charlotte brontë is bi’ post here http://upthawolfs.tumblr.com/post/158669224314/boykeats-ashildr-rabbit

i’ve been trying to track down sources, but it’s been a bit tricky. the quote “I am more than half-persuaded that I am a man’s soul, put by some freak of nature into a woman’s body … because I have fallen in love in my life with so many pretty girls and never once the least bit with any man.” comes straight out of the introduction for the penguin classics edition of little women though!

and i know that little women was ended up in the #43 spot of publishing triangle’s list of 100 best gay and lesbian books of all time here http://www.publishingtriangle.org/100best.asp

there’s also some precedence that she fell on the trans masc spectrum, but as with many things, it’s a giant gray area, and i’m not that inclined to label her as exclusively one identity or the other

her describing herself as having a man’s soul is clinical gay terminology of the time. doctors and psychologists were describing gay desire as having an ‘inversion’ of the soul, i.e. the surest explanation of your desire to kiss women is because there was some kind of spiritual mix-up and you were given a het man’s romantic inclinations (edward carpenter, a gay man of the time, wrote a historically important essay about it called ‘the intermediate sex’).

but she also self-described as behaving like a boy, and there was a period of time where she referred to herself by the name louie https://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/food-dining/2012/11/20/book-review-marmee-louisa-the-untold-story-louisa-may-alcott-and-her-mother-eve-laplante/ksnrq8Azndrm4EwTUMdmFN/story.html

basically what i’m trying to say is that louisa may alcott was indisputably queer, she totally liked women, little women is a hallmark of lesbian fiction, it’s all amazing. enjoy

Songs of Ssael Prayerbook

Wanted to talk about my newest prop for Duane real quick. Was waiting to get the new photos up first, but I do not have time to edit them at the moment and needed a quick break from sewing my next costume.

Wish I had a before shot to share because it used to be blue.  Materials I used: a book, scrapbooking paper in green, gold, black velvet, and a fun design (you’ll see that one later), green and black fabric paint, tan, white, black, and brown acrylic paint, twine, gold ballpoint pen, a hot glue gun, and a lot of Modge Podge.

I was really picky about the base book I chose. It had to be the right size in my hand…not too thick as to look bulky but not so thin as I couldn’t do a little something fun with it.  I also ended up choosing this one because it left the ends of the pages raw and I liked the rough look of it! I had to sand the top of the book though, since the pages were dyed orange.

Here you can see where I tore off half of the spine. That was my first step, before I even started painting. You can also see where I glued down the twine bindings on the spine and the pieces that hang from the top of the book. I also used hot glue to seal the raw end of the twine so it wouldn’t unravel.

The designs I traced a vector for from the art and used that to print a stencil of sorts I could use to cut the pieces out with an exacto knife. It’s all glued down with Modge Podge.

All of the weathering with black and white I tried to keep as close to the illustrations of the book as possible.

Here is the rarely seen back! This is where the tan paint really came in. I used it to color the blue so I could save that slightly leathery texture of the original cover.  The green paper I glued on to re-do the cover I purposely left loose on that corner and tore the edge around to make it uneven.  I also spritzed it with water to get it extra floppy.

One of my personal touches was the old bloody handprint on the back. The space was partially covered in the art, and on its own it felt empty. I figured, Duane must have picked up the book after accidentally eating somebody at least once right.  I just painted my fingers brown and slammed them down on the back of the book.

Here is a detail shot where you can really see the textures in the papers I chose. I like the randomness of the gold, and the elegance the velvet added.  The green had a linen look to it that I thought fit well wishing the comic’s aesthetic.

I also want to talk about the letters here. Finding simple gold letter stickers was, oddly enough, impossible. I ended up buying purple glitter ones instead. I had to scrape off all the glitter, resurface it with Modge Podge, and color it with my gold leafing pen.  The ‘f’ I had to extend as well…placing a piece of another sticker under it before applying the Modge Podge.

Here is another detail shot showing the fun rough edges of the book, as well as some of the weathering I did on the edge.  For the edge I tried to sand through the paper to the tan paint I had applied underneath…but I ended up sanding through the paint too fast to the original color of the book. So in the end I took a box cutter and carved away at all the edges, down to the cardboard cover itself.  I ran sandpaper over the carved edges to make it look more like it had worn down and had not been carved out.

This is probably the roughest part of the book, but still pretty  happy with it! In the art it’s so small it’s just scribbles so I had to improvise what to put up there.  Considering the book it had to be Tainish for sure. The phrase I had originally chosen was too long, so I ended up mashing two other ones together and hoping it makes sense.  Can’t say I’m too well versed in Tainish grammar after all. I had also wanted to draw it in the Tainish alphabet, but sadly that is not available, so I used cursive instead.

For those who may have trouble reading my sloppy penmanship it reads:
Ssael fhikemun rish ul a Llede Llaemasa

Which should, in theory, translate to:
Ssael reveals the way to his Lions of Mercy

The inner cover I also redid with a paper with a fun design.  The edges of the green showed and I wanted a nice clean look all around.  Also a little extra weathering just cuz.

And last but not least, the whole reason I decided to do this project in the first place! I needed a place to keep my ribbons at ALA.

I made this into a hollow book with a lot of Modge Podge and cutting of pages and more Modge Podge and some heavy things. This is why the book couldn’t be too thin.  I made sure to leave a number of pages at the front loose so I could also use it as a prop.

lol can people stop with the fake concern for loona/block berry. i’m tired.

ya’ll out there claiming that you’re just concerned for the girls because of all the debt they’ll accumulate if they flop but go on about in the same breath how you’ll check them out after their debut/or that you lost interest because they’re taking too long to debut (idk but getting music every month is pretty damn exciting to me) ????? don’t want them to flop??? how about streaming their music??? buy their albums (if you’re able to financially)???? share their videos???? instead of leaving a half-assed comment for the sake of commenting.  THIS IS WHY GIRL GROUPS ARE DISBANDING/LEAVING US. IF YOU LOVE/CARE ABOUT SOMETHING YOU’LL WORK FOR IT.

Me and my plant are feeling alright today

I’m home from church! Singing on the praise team was so so terrifying and exciting and heart warming and honestly I just closed my eyes a lot of the time and focused on God so I wouldn’t be as scared. I sang melody on Holy Spirit and the other two women sang two different harmonies and the other guy on the praise team said he got chills from it so 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼 but other than that I sang harmony (alto) and then after church one of the girls was bragging about me being able to harmonize to other people who came up to us 😂🙈

How do you know if a guy is right for you? You’ll know, okay? You just have to let it happen. And then, probably when you’re not looking, you’ll find someone who compliments you. Someone who likes what you like, someone who reads the same books or listens to the same music or likes to trash the same movies. Someone compatible…but not so compatible that they’re boring. I mean, you respect each other’s opinions and you can laugh at the same jokes, but I don’t know – there’s just something about not quite knowing what the other person’s gonna do at all times that’s just really exciting.

I have a 4 year old sister who is obsessed with princesses. The girl just loves them, but having grown up with me in the house, she also loves superheroes. (Jason Todd is her favorite– one time she told me that she wanted him to buy her candy so that she could share it with him. )

Anyway, one day I was wearing a Wonder Woman tshirt, and she asked me why Diana was wearing a crown. “She’s a princess,” I told her. “Her mom is the Queen of the Amazons.”

My little sister freezes for a couple of second, eyes wide, and whispers “Wonder Woman is a princess… and a superhero?”

“She sure is,” I told her. 

“I’m going to be a princess AND a superhero too!”

So that’s why I’m really excited about Wonder Woman finally being marketed to little girls, or even just the world at large. It makes a difference, you know? Little girls want to be superheroes too.

i’m still so emotional over how elizabeth henstridge says she wants jemma to have a boyfriend or a girlfriend so naturally, so matter-of-factly, as if that’s the most logical answer, as if it’s a canon fact that jemma is into men and women and therefore saying only “boyfriend” would be wrong, that it makes me believe that’s how she’s always interpreted her character.

unlike so many other people blinded by heteronormativity and the absurd belief that all characters are straight until proven otherwise, she never assumed jemma is straight

she knows her character so well and her saying she wants jemma to have a girlfriend means she understands jemma definitely considers dating girls. there’s no change in how she plays jemma seemingly flirting with guys and with girls. despite the lack of proper opportunities to develop that, her acting has never ruled out any of the possibilities.

and, if you ask me, the way jemma acts around bobbi in a hen in the wolf house is the biggest evidence that liz doesn’t play jemma as straight, because it takes an extraordinary amount of heteronormativity for someone to say she wasn’t being flirty.

Hey so I don’t know much about the stories beyond what is presented in Moana, but I’m pretty sure that at least the character of Maui as depicted in the movie is nonbinary!!??!?!?!!!

In his introduction he keeps interrupting Moana to add on to the list of descriptors she’s using for him. First “Hero of men” then “Hero of men and women.” Then he clarifies “I mean everyone. It’s not just a guys and girls thing. Hero of all.”

Then during his song he says “I’m just an ordinary demi-guy.”

He outright SAYS that. 

So. 

That is great.

My bud @cassiomia had some neat pens today and I was very glad to have the chance to scribble around with them. They are SO SMOOTH.
Of course, my first instinct when I have a pen in my hand is to doodle an Undyne…so…that’s what I did.

I’m very excited to draw her debut in chapter three, which I guess you guys won’t see for a while… But! I am excited! She is my baby girl and I love her very much.
Speaking of the graphic novel… the next finished page is coming today! So! Be on the lookout, guys! (Just gotta get a good photo of it…💦)

Didn't Lili Reinhart's call lesbian relationships fanfiction in an interview and explicitly state that beronica would never happen and then use the idea of more of them to get ppl excited for riverdale S2 and then say that screaming about how great and hot a girl is is a girl thing and not a gay thing and just sorry I agree that Cole is racist abuser trash but how is she any better? I'm just confused because so many beronica blogs love her when she's said so much lesbophobic shot can you explain

Lili has supported gay rights for years. You would know that if you looked at her twitter. She also fucking kissed a girl for television so if she’s homophobic than she has a weird way of showing it. She can’t help if producers of a tv show are making her say things, which I bet they are. She could have possibly phrased it better when she was in that interview but still. Cole has mentally abused his ex girlfriend and is racist. There is evidence of both…
