A story is true. A story is untrue. As time extends, it matters less and less. The stories we want to believe those are the ones that survive, despite upheaval and transition and progress. Those are the stories that shape history.
It’s no use, classes are so boring my brain is already tuning out lectures automatic once class starts, so just random doodles and sketches I’ve done, recently more with persona 5. That game was the best took me forever to complete the first playthrough, but gotta stop there cause homework and commission I need finish
My friends dragged me out of the house because I started playing persona 5 nonstop they want me to f stop so I sketched a few characters from various while hanging with them. I will return to my persona 5
Kudos to Black Sails for taking a show that could have so easily been a testosterone party, and making it into one of the best shows in regards to representation.
The character who has the most power is a queer WOC, three BAMF female characters make up the main group. These three leading ladies are in a love triangle of sorts. The women who work in the brothel are shown to be smart and witty. One of the main male pirates is gay. The straight, white male, pin up, was the one killed off.
This show just proves that you can have diversity across the board and that it doesn’t limit the story or popularity.
I have recently become utterly smitten with the Society of Gentlemen book series by KJ Charles. The book covers are so disappointing and bland and do not do these characters justice AT ALL so I needed to draw the boys myself.
If you like Regency-era stories about gentlemen who like other gentlemen then you should check this series out; it’s got some lovely romance and friendships and supporting-each-other-through-hardship and era politics and scandal and drama and pining. Not to mention bi and demi and trans characters, and none of the conflicts revolve around anyone being ashamed of their sexuality. Oh, and they all have HAPPY ENDINGS! Also people actually communicate and it avoids so many stupid misunderstandings that are so common in love stories.
(Basically everything I’ve ever wanted in historical romance and more)
