⭐️SHOUTOUT TO ONE OF MY BIGGEST INSPIRATIONS FOR THE UTGN PROJECT!⭐️
There are so many super neat Undertale comics in progress right now, it’s honestly a little bit intimidating. But! One of the advantages of that is being able to draw inspiration from them. I may not be working digitally or working off of my own premise like most comics are, but it’s really neat to see other people working with the characters in their own ways…which brings me to the point of this blurb.
One of the most inspirational comics that I’ve been following as I work on the graphic novel is @xxtc-96xx’s Endertale. It’s a comic following the True Pacifist run, specifically a version where Frisk pulled some shenanigans in order to save Asriel and now they’re living out a fantastic life with their friends and new family. There’s only one problem, though… Chara’s not exactly on board with this idea. Chara wants a reset and is going to get it by whatever means necessary, since Frisk has firmly decided that they don’t want to destroy the happy future they’ve managed to get for everyone. And thus…Frisk endures a lot of torture and flashbacks and suffering courtesy of our favorite ghost friend (which is what the doodle of UTGN Frisk and Chara is a reference to).
The comic is adorable and hilarious for part of the time and for a lot of the time it’s incredibly intense and suspenseful. I’m always super excited when the next part comes in on my dash. It’s very well done and the art style and story and character work are marvelous. It’s a huge inspiration to me as an Undertale comic artist because well, it’s just so amazing and well-received, and getting to follow a comic like that gives me hope for the future of mine. Mine will never be quite as imaginative and well-done as Endertale, but I can always try.
I look forward to seeing more of Endertale in the future. @xxtc-96xx, excellent work so far and thank you so much for being such a big inspiration to me.
(and if you’re here and have no idea what the heck I’m talking about gO rEAd Endertale)
i;m literally sobbing i just wish i was you if i had a time machine i swear i would go back to watch the tmh tour and then go to otra and then i would go back to right before i read this fic and then i would read it and then i’d go back in time again to re-read it again and then maybe go to otra again and then i’d go back to before i read it and then re-read it again like on a time loop fOREVER listen ok that was a long preamble but it’s seriously like it’s that good READ IT TRUST ME JUST READ IT
HEYO STAR WARS FAM! it’s me, calling from the other side. Lmao, I am so funny, rip. ANYWAY, there has been a LOT of negativity in the fandom lately and meanwhile, I am more than HAPPY that I do not have any part in it, I do see some of it on my dash. It makes me SAD &&. makes me think about how we used to be ( wow, cheesy ) when I joined, the fandom wasn’t like THIS but well, time never stops ( *fight the urge to athlete student meme this —* ). So, I know, I know - this post won’t change ANYTHING but I just wanted to do something to maybe cheer us all up a little. Negativity should not take over a fandom and should not be the reason people neglect their blogs. Have your Clique, have your faves as long as YOU feel comfortable because THAT is all that matters. And now, something bright &&. nice so yes, under the cut are some Positive Callouts!! happy reading and spread the positive vibes!
Today I finally submitted my fully complete and approved PhD thesis (geology - VGP)! I am the orogeny! I am the hot-rock doctor! I am the lava that scorches the Earth! Hail to my esoteric skillset!!
I’m particularly extra-chuffed about this bc: > This was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done. > I’m notably younger than all my peers. > It took 1 semester less than my adviser planned for. > Since my undergrad wasn’t in geo or enviro I was considered a total gamble and likely risk for failure when I was first accepted (and the faculty who voted against my acceptance made sure I knew). > I’m the first in my family to pursue graduate education! > My field area was obscenely remote, so I got to fucking name a volcano!!! > Nearly dropped out ~ 3,790 times (mostly due to S.A.D. and/or burnout) > After 4.5 years, finally get to move the hell out of the midwest and back to my beloved mountains of the western US! > I’ve contributed brand-spanking-new knowledge to the human race and if that isn’t top-tits, then I don’t know what is.
This may be the first time in my life where I’m 100% sure my 5-year-old self would think I’m cool. It’s an amazing experience.
random seeming @soothseay because I couldn’t reply to her Natalie Dormer reblog.
Look. I don’t even know. That woman is just the kind of bossy I want to test. Would she be able to actually boss me around (I don’t boss easily)?? I don’t know, but gods I’m willing to see how it goes.
I feel like I should tag @vyshella in this as Natalie might be the only woman on both our lists.
