Quick MML Hogwarts AU sketch dump before Thanksgiving, because I have so many feelings for these kids and some are happy and some are sad and I just want all the fics from @imaginashon

i don’t think it’s fair for people (non-artists especially) to point out an artist and say “wow i hate their art they suck they haven’t progressed in years, the way they draw _____ is pathetic”. yes, it’s okay for you to not like an art style but don’t put someone down for their progress. development in art is something that doesn’t move upwards consistently in a smooth path, it’s different for everyone and it’s not fair to compare and judge. even the most popular artists can get stuck drawing the same thing for a long time and i think that’s okay? some people get really comfortable with the way they draw a certain thing and may choose to stick with that for a long time because it looks right to them, they’re fearful of trying a new thing and the new thing looks like trash in their eyes so it might take them a while to get comfortable with exploring. everyone is different and develops in their own way, art is frustrating and really hard and no one is harder on the artist than themselves.

anonymous asked:

Is it wrong that I wanna fuck the human version of Nanny Ogg's cat Greebo from Witches Abroad, whom I picture inside my head as basically Jason Momoa?

I mean it vaguely unsettles me but if I’m going to shame anyone it’s going to be Terry Pratchett (mayherestinpeace) for deciding that making a cat into a sexy human was a good idea 

This Goku thing

Okay I’m really confused… I don’t read the manga and I don’t really know all that much about who’s even involved in Super, whether Toriyama is completely out of the picture or what. But I keep seeing posts hating on this Toyotaro guy for writing the manga and wrecking the Goku character. I mean I know Goku has been off from the start of the anime compared to DBZ, but people seem to be really going batshit over the manga now so I decided to look it up to see if Toriyama has any idea what this guy is doing.

And it turns out… Toriyama literally approves of EVERYTHING Toyotaro writes? Like Toriyama gives him a basic story idea, Toyotaro writes it and sends it to him for his approval, and Toriyama changes it or edits it or whatever and the final product has basically been done by both of them. Now, I have also read that Toriyama has given Toyotaro more freedom and control as the series goes on, so it’s possible that some things have slipped past him, but he’s still pretty happy with how things are going as far as I can tell.

Now I know my source might not be accurate (Wikipedia lol) but assuming it is… it doesn’t seem like Toyotaro is changing this character against Toriyama’s wishes and totally fucking it up for everyone, it seems that maybe in the years since he last wrote DBZ (about 10 I think?), Toriyama has kind of changed his mind about who he wants Goku to be. I’ve also read (can’t remember where) in the past that Toriyama has at some point expressed that he wants Goku to remain that innocent naive character obsessed with fighting that he was in Dragonball, and that the events of DBZ kind of turned him into a character that Toriyama never wanted him to be. Honestly I think DBS is just Toriyama’s way of ‘resetting’ Goku. Which might be shit for everybody who loves the Goku of DBZ and has lived their lives with a certain perception of him, but… at the end of the day it’s Toriyama’s character, and he seems as much to blame in all this fucking up of Goku as anybody else. And I’m not trying to hate on Toriyama, I fucking LOVE Toriyama and I can’t express how grateful I am to him for creating this fandom and everything associated with it, I’m just saying that maybe we should be more respectful of his ownership of Goku and the person he has chosen to write him. From what I can tell Toriyama isn’t at all unhappy with how the manga is being written and it’s not fair for anybody to attack Toyotaro for it.

But, like I said, I might be wrong. I am totally willing to be proven wrong and if Toriyama doesn’t like DBS Goku then I will be the first to say what Toyotaro is doing is wrong, but if he is happy with it like he seems to be, then… guys, Goku is his OC. Let him do what he wants, and if you’re angry at Toyotaro for what Goku is (which you have every right to be, I don’t totally like what Goku is now myself) then you have to be angry at Toriyama as well. If you’re going to hate then at least be fair and hate on both of them.

Honestly I’m not trying to start shit. I still love Goku come what may, even if he is kind of a jerk now, and I love Toriyama. I just don’t like one person being hated on for something that other people were involved in as well. Please stop it.

Yo this is not an informational post. This is an emotional rant based on things Ive heard and not confirmed. Just a psa

So I love stranger things two and the more I think about it the more I love Billy Hargrove and want to see his character broken down and put through some interesting development in future. Trouble is, this simple desire is apparently highly controversial on the tungl dot come because of the demand for  ideological purity and teenagers with no dissociation between fiction and reality being given an anonymous internet megaphone to broadcast their frustration with the world. I’m no stranger to such anti fandom discourse, I tend to like dark characters and ship dark ships (where dark = problematic) so Im used to the whole “ew gross these people are horrible bigoted nazi pedo[hile abusive dog shit lumps because arbitrary fiction opinion” thing though I’d be lying if I said it didn’t bother me at all. I’m a pretty sensitive person so yea sometimes it hurts but whatever that’s my problem rationally I know that none of this matters. love isn’t real. death is certain. embrace the void.

 So anyway Billy. Oh Billy. My dear sweet sweet self destructive asshole trainwreck of a baby boy. Important to note is that I did not love him immediately. At first  I hated him. He seemed really obnoxious and pointless. Then the last episode happened. We’ll talk more about that later.

I started to get into the Billy and harringrove fandom subset a bit and let myself hope for character development. Then I heard that apparently the creators of the show have confirmed that they’re not going anywhere with Billy’s character because he’s just the new villain. um….ok….what

(i haven’t actually been able to find the source for this but hey im a pessimist so lets just assume it’s true while staying open to it being false. wow what a concept. mental flexibility.)

And I know there are a lot of fans who would like this as well, for Billy to just be the one dimensional villain and hopefully be brutally killed off as soon as possible.

And I gotta tell you guys…that is just terrible writing.

Like I said I hated him at first. He was mean and obnoxious and had a stupid mullet and did nothing of value and why was he even here? Apart from obviously being meant to contrast with Steve to prove how much better he is now which…cmon…did we really need that? Do we not have eyeballs? It felt stupid and condescending and I was truly annoyed everytime he came on screen. Gradually I became intrigued by just how fixated on Steve billy seemed to be. That was weird. Didn’t know what to make of it. Then episode 9 happened.

so hey any writers out there, if you want me to all out hate and not care about a character who you only meant to be a one dimensional villain, here’s what you dont do; you dont contextualize his behavior in a relatable and sympathetic way. Revealing his father’s abuse made soooo many things about Billy suddenly make sense. It even painted some in a new light as I looked back and realized just how self destructive most of his actions are. A lot of people also began reading him as gay, which Im not so sure of since tv loooves to queerbait, but I do agree it’s a perfectly logical interpretation of what we’ve seen. The whole scene was a giant “ooooooohhhhh” moment. With that little piece of context as to Billy’s perspective on his family (that he fears his father, that he is responsible for Max under threat of violence and thus resents her, etc) his character suddenly became…an actual character. An interesting character, that I want to see more of.

I cant for the life of me think why they decided to add this scene if they intended Billy to be a flat villain that we’re not supposed to care about. It utterly baffles me. Why? Why would you do that? This show is full of amazing, complex characters whose entire appeal is that they feel real and have flaws. So why would you add another one, but tell us that he’s not supposed to be complex or real and we’re just supposed to hate him and accept him as the dull bully villain?

I hope to god that these things Ive heard aren’t true because if they are I have a sinking feeling that the writing in this show is about to take a nosedive.
