Okay so as we all know by now Zhang Yixing is not a part of EXO’s 4th full album The War.
Whether it was a conflict of schedules or mismanagement, the sad reality is that an EXO member is fully excluded from the comeback. Moreover, the fans weren’t given a proper explanation about the status of the situation and were mostly kept in the dark about the extent of his participation without any clear statement from SM entertainment about whether or not he will be a part of the album.
EXO is a group of 9 members and the fans are here for the 9 members. If members are excluded from full comebacks like this, it isn’t a situation fair to anyone - neither the members nor the fans. Hence, we cannot allow this treatment of the current situation to be digested like this. Many fans are discontent and disappointed, and we need to express it openly even as we await the upcoming comeback.
In short, Yixing is an EXO member. He should be in an EXO album. He, or any other member, cannot be excluded from any future comebacks like this - with vague statements as an excuse. EXO is 9 members, and having a Full only 8 member album should not erase the group’s identity as 9.
Therefore, in order to show our support for OT9 and appreciation for EXO LAY and not forget his complete absence from the comeback, we are announcing a Twitter project.
On 17th July 11-12 AM KST, the night before the release of the official MV, we will trend the hashtags:
"#이씽도사랑해" (We love Yixing too)
Please take part in the project by tweeting the above hashtags and tagging the official @weareoneEXO account with it.
EDIT : Some of the people are misunderstanding the primary purpose of this project. (probably because of the strong wording of my original post).
Its a small meaningful project of support and nothing else.
1. Yixing is an EXO member that we still support and remember though he is not a part of this comeback.
2. We missed him in this comeback and felt his absence.
3. EXO is 9 members and we support all nine.
4. To cheer up and make yixing stans feel more included in the comeback.
5. This project is not = #noot9nocomeback or to cause fanwars.
This is not a petition, its just a twitter project to give an hour to Lay and the people who miss him..before exo comes out with a new album and enters a new era.
Small projects like these wont affect the comeback. Small projects like these don’t affect album sales, youtube views, album reviews, voting results, music show trophies, lay’s activities in china, THAAD, member’s popularities or daesangs. Small projects like these are to make people feel better. The hashtags are all about positivity and hence i request everyone to keep it positive and in control.
Also, I apologize for the unnecessary confusion the timing on the poster are causing to everyone. It is a one hour project- 17th July 11 pm kst to 18th July 12 am kst. Please be respectful and keep the hashtags positive and stick to the start and stop timing.
We chose this time since a lot of ppl will already be up at that time to possibly catch the full MV Teaser on July 18th 12 am Kst.We kept it short since by continuing it once the teaser drops we dont want to show disrespect towards the comeback (and it will be drowned in the hype anyways)
The official MV is on 6pm kst 18 July. So the twitter trends for the comeback will not be affected.

thats it for now, i will probably update this in the future when i think of it. these are my opinions and my opinions only im not some kind of anime guru kthx
getting kind of tired of the lack of updates, w out an explanation, we at least deserve that
I think I’ll have to put this in the FAQ at some point because I get asked this a lot even though I’ve answered it before, which is OK. I don’t expect people to search the blog for old asks all the time to find information. It might just be easier to put it in the FAQ.
I had surgery in late April for a kidney tumor. It was successful but the recovery has slowed my updating significantly since then. I used to have no job and all the time in the world to work on SaM before that, updating maybe even 3 times a month. That is not doable anymore. Since surgery, I’ve had health problems as well. I’ve been to the Emergency room 5 times since April, all on separate occasions, once even on my family’s first time ever going to Hawaii. I was stuck at the condo.
In addition to health problems, I also have full time employment now. Meaning, I can only work on “Satan and Me” and my other comic “Here it Comes” on the weekends. Updates will be significantly slower because of that, also because I still want to have a life outside of just drawing on the computer all week. I don’t spend my entire weekends drawing updates. Sometimes I go shopping or see my friends or have a meal with my family.
My full time work is also a drawing job, which I’m happy to have because I went to art school to work in art, so I like that I finally can do that after attending school for 3 years. This is extra taxing on my wrist, which has been in very bad shape even when I started SaM 3 years ago. So sometimes I just don’t want to draw because my wrist needs a day off. I am unable to draw 7 days a week every week. I still try to do that, though, because I feel bad about how much updates have slowed down since my surgery in April, so I still push myself and end up doing just that.
These past two weeks I have some friends in town for the first time on vacation as well. So for these two weeks I haven’t been working on SaM, choosing to spend time with these friends while they’re here instead. It’s my first vacation since I started employment in April, and since my medical recovery. I even had to work during my family’s vacation in Hawaii, so that never felt like a vacation to me when I was stuck 4 days at the condo sick, on meds, and drawing all day while everyone else got to sight see.
I’m sorry that updates are slower. “Satan and Me” will realistically probably get an update every month or every other month if I’m honest. I can’t help that at this point. I try to make the updates prettier and with more panels to make up for that. Before, updates would be 7-10 panels long. I’ve been trying to shoot for the 20s range for you guys, or at least upper teens, since Natalie came back.
I’d love to draw more, believe me I would, but with fulltime work now that’s just not doable. I’m sorry, but I need to pay my bills.
I’m late as always, I really need work on that, but as you people know already pokemon go had its birthday/anniversery :D! Happy Birthday/Anniversary It’s been one year since it came out and really I still love the app and the leaders to death cause it was this that I started draw more than ever, make comics and actually use this blog. Sad it not as popular use to be cause that was really fun but it still going! Also that artwork they had…SPARK DONT DROP THOSE EGGS!
why bobs burgers is possibly the purest show in the universe
- a good, loving family that does not despise each other, that sticks together, that bands together in the face of adversity
- in cliche tv shows families only tell each other they love each other in the face of danger/at the climax. not here. they regularly tell each other that they care even if it’s not an outright “i love you” it’s just acts of compassion and love and its not made a huge deal. It’s a regular occurrence for them.
- however when they do show their love in climactic moving parts its so great its so so great
- honestly? no matter how much they act dont like it they’d drop everything for another family member. all of the belchers are ride or die. not just linda. all of them.
- sometimes, things don’t work out how you want it to. Bob doesn’t get a good review, Gene doesn’t win the contest, Tina doesn’t get on the team, but it’s all okay. Bad things happen but there are good people around you and you’ll get through this it’s ok
- no matter what, they try their best. They’ll keep trying until the end even if the outcome isn’t what the want. And they accept their fate, but that’s not the same thing as giving up.
- I think im crying? this family is so good and pure and they deserve everything? i cant
- im going to quit life and become a bobs burgers account
- anyway im not in a great place in life rn and this show has saved me a lot i think and i just want to give them the world
Trimberly prompt? I have a random one where Trini is secretly Angel Grove's Tiger mascot.
Dude I fucking got you.
The girl in question nips at the smooth skin of her girlfriend’s neck, the slight pain causing a sharp gasp from her lover to pierce the air. A dull thud joins the sound as she hears her head slam back into the wall she was currently pinning her to.
Hands tangle themselves in her hair when she finally reaches the spot on her shoulder that Trini knows drives Kim insane, a whimper escaping the girl’s lips helplessly.
She smirks at the high-pitched plea, roughly pulling Kim from the wall and turning her toward her bed. She smashes their lips together, breaths intermingling as she backs them up toward her destination. She’s so preoccupied with the goddess she’s worshipping that she doesn’t remember the huge pile haphazardly covered with a blanket lying on the floor right behind Kim. That is, until it’s too late.
Suddenly, Kim is falling over, taking Trini with her, landing roughly on the floor. Fortunately, Kim is so far gone she doesn’t even care that they didn’t land on the bed, so Trini could just keep going.
Unfortunately, Trini hesitates just long enough for Kim to open her eyes to complain, but Trini sees her stop. She sees her eyebrows pull together in confusion.
“What was that?”
“What was what?” Trini tries to play dumb; she really does. It just doesn’t work.
“What we just tripped over.” Kim leans her head to try to steal a glimpse at it, but Trini blocks her path.
“Pfft. It doesn’t really matter, does it?” Trini goes to kiss Kim’s neck again, but Kim stops her.
Shit. Shit. Shit.
“Nuh uh, no kisses until you answer my question.”
“It’s nothing.” Kim narrows her eyes.
There’s a moment between them, a moment of challenge, just like that moment when Trini had stabbed stabbed her fork into the last piece of donut at Krispy Kreme, except this time, Trini knows she’s going to lose.
Kim moves first, pushing Trini off of her, lunging for the covered mass. Trini jumps back, catching her hand and pushing the mass farther away from the two. Kim rips her hand away from Trini’s, throwing a kick aimed at Trini’s chest, which Trini catches and uses to flip Kim away from her. She leaps up and runs toward the mass but is stopped by Kim grabbing her arm and pulling it toward her. The fight continues, grabbing and pulling and kicking until, finally, Kim gains the upper hand and sweeps Trini off balance, sending her crashing into her desk. It buys her enough time to rip the blanket off of the mass.
Her jaw drops.
It’s a giant tiger head.
It’s the giant tiger head.
“-do that.” Trini finishes, meekly.
“Oh my god.” Kim starts laughing, doubling over from the sheer hilarity of it all. Trini feels her cheeks aflame.
“You’re-” a gasp, “You’re the mascot?!”
Trini frowns, suddenly defensive and embarrassed. “Maybe.”
“Oh my god, this is gold.”
“It keeps my mom off my back about extracurriculars!”
“But, baby, the mascot?” There are tears coming out of Kim’s eyes.
Kim stops laughing when Trini says that, and starts walking toward her.
“Oh, baby, I didn’t mean to upset you.” Trini’s frown deepens.
“I mean it, I think it’s actually kind of cute. You get so pumped for our pep rallies. I would’ve never guessed-”
“-that’s the point.” Trini was pouting now.
Kim leans down and presses a kiss to Trini’s cheek, causing them the burn hotter.
“I love it.” Trini’s eyes snap to meet Kim’s
“Yeah?” She hates how small it sounds.
“Yeah.” Kim’s eyes are so kind, her smile so loving, “Now, how about you show me some of those moves you pull at the games?”
The moment’s ruined, and Trini’s cheeks are back to burning. She shoves Kim playfully.
“Fuck you, Hart.”
“I really want you to.”
Okay, maybe the moment’s not completely ruined, if the hungry look in Kim’s eyes is anything to go by.
