co existence


“She’s [Stella Gibson] a strong, powerful character and yet she is very much in touch with her feminine side. There was something about playing her that actually kind of awakened me to the notion that the two can co-exist. That I can… I’m masculine, so to speak, in the way that I am in my life, but that I can embrace that co-existing other part of myself, and it doesn’t mean that I’m conforming to long-standing notions of how women should and shouldn’t be, or dress.”

1, 5, 3, 16! :D

1.Who’s the oldest character of yours that you still use?

mmmmmmm, pretty certain that Aretha holds that spot. She’s still a relevant character in my life. I don’t think I’ll ever trash her. 

5. Do you prefer to make human, animal, monster, or _____ characters? Why? 

Human and Monsters. My life revolves around humans and supernatural beings in general or co-existing in the same story line. I love monsters and folklore and have ever since I was little. I’ve always loved fantasy type settings because they’re my absolute favorite worlds to get stuck into. And I’m a sucker for monsters living in regular modern settings too. 

3. Has creating a character ever made you realize something about yourself?

Ehhh….Idk…A lot of the time I put myself into my characters. Most of my OCs share some aspect of my own personality or experiences. 

16. Is there a character of yours who’s a real struggle to write/draw? Why do you think that is?

My character Mary has been proven to be kind of difficult for me I guess. She’s the happiest/most care free character I’ve made so far, and idk drawing her has been hard for me for some reason???? Not entirely sure why. 

sorry but “aphobia” for cishet aro/aces and cis aroaces doesn’t exist outside of misogyny and toxic masculinity.

if you’re a cis and/or het aro/ace girl and you’re called frigid or a bitch for not wanting sex or a relationship, that’s not “aphobia” that’s misogyny

if you’re a cis and/or het aro/ace boy and you’re called a pussy for not wanting sex or a relationship, that’s not “aphobia” that’s toxic masculinity.

there are literally already words for what you’re experiencing stop trying to make up new ones so you can invade LGBT safe spaces


“The legend of Anarkali – the beautiful courtesan who seduced the Mughal Prince Saleem only to be entombed alive in a wall for her transgression by Salim’s father, Emperor Akbar. The history of Anarkali, that heaving, bustling maze of congested streets and tiny shops located outside the Lohari Gate, can be traced back to colonial times. 

Lahore’s oldest surviving bazaar was once the center of culture and style; and remains a popular shopping destination even today… Vibrant and chaotic, Anarkali Bazaar embodies Lahore’s spirit of grandeur, contradictions and co-existence. Amongst shops selling everything from stationery to hand embroidered khussas to fresh nimbo paani, you’ll spot architectural styles derived from the various eras to have shaped the city’s cultural ethos – from Mughal to Sikh to British” -Destinations Magazine

Foreshadowing from Steven’s Dream

The foreshadowed moment of Greg’s abduction leads me to wonder whether other details about the movie they watched are also relevant. 

“They only kidnapped cows because they needed milk for their cereal planet.”

And we already know that the gems are running low on resources and their planet is starving. Perhaps, as I’ve been suggesting for a very long time now, the key is to work together. In the same way cereal and milk are complements, the end goal might really be for organic and gem life to co-exist to make a delicious breakfast.

  • <p> <b>a random person :</b> platonic relationships are beautiful<p/><b>another person :</b> romantic relationships are beautiful<p/><b>me, an intellectual :</b> both are. both can co-exist at the same time. it's fine if people ship it platonically OR romantically. best friends to lovers is completely valid and vice versa.<p/></p>

“Lisa Hanawalt’s uniquely funny and bizarre webcomics led to her current role as designer and producer of BoJack Horseman, Netflix’s series set in a world where humans and anthropomorphic animals co-exist. She also co-hosts Baby Geniuses, a podcast with comedian Emily Heller that has nothing to do with the movie of the same name.”

Heaven on Earth is what you can see in nature, in the animals and in beautiful souls. Hell on Earth is all the suffering, selfishness, destruction and pain brought on by mankind. It’s a bit difficult to co-exist with both, because even when you manage to create your own bit of Heaven, you are still faced almost daily with all the bullshit going on.
