for the people who asked me to post it

Dear Ass-Hole,

I understand that I was the one that agreed to draw your OC as a free request. Especially knowing that I still have loads of other art that I still need to work on. But please, for the love of God, STOP checking up on me every single day asking about the status of your free art. Keyword, F R E E art!

I have lots of other things I still need to do. Commissions, updates, over due art trades. I will get to it when I can.

I was nice enough to offer to draw your OC, but there’s really no need to keep rushing my ass to draw your OC when it’s F R E E!

If you want it so bad, how about you just pay me or go bug some other artist that’s currently taking requests? Better yet, how about I just say, “fuck it” and not do it at all? I mean, I already owe a lot of art in the first place. That’s less on my plate.

If you can’t wait, don’t harass.

Sincerely,

THE FUCKING ARTIST

boyonetta is abusive

Over a year ago, I made this post:

It got about 100 notes and then I forgot about it until weeks ago when Zach (boyonetta) reblogged it to tell me not to mention him again because I’m the worst person on this website (admittedly, in harsher words and with much greater detail).

When people asked him why he thought I was a bad person (because if I wasn’t, he would’ve had harassed me for no reason) the accusations were “they’re an aphobe” (with no evidence), “they doxx people” (with no evidence) and “they pushed the trans boy who started down with hate (my friend Chris) to attempting suicide”, with no evidence. One of these stuck.

I repeatedly asked for any proof they had of me doing this, and instead of providing any, they would block me and post stuff like this when I couldn’t defend myself:

After this claim had been spreading for two weeks, I realized I would have to contact Chris and have him set the record straight if I wanted these people to stop:

One of my fans decided to send Zach an ask with a link to this post, and immediately after, he posted this:

How convenient. Right when someone had found proof that he was lying about me to his friends and followers, he decided he was done posting about me because I “harassed” them by asking for evidence.

Zach is clearly a manipulative liar who knows he fucked up. By his own admission, his behavior towards me was abusive:

Despite this, I doubt he’ll apologize or try to better himself in any way. In all likelihood, he’s going to repeat his lie later once the heat has died down. But hopefully this post will let people know to avoid him in the future and report him if/when he tries something like this on someone else.

If you all could reblog this so that his followers might see it in his tag, that would be greatly appreciated.

There was a moment of faint confusion when people started messaging me with things like “oh no you’re hitting all my kinks” and “I’m fully prepared for you to wreck meand I was like “who the fuck am I being confused with now” and then I realized the ask I put into my queue about kinks in Hunger Pangs must have posted and lol. 

Thank you darlings, I’m so glad you’re looking forward to it <3

asmallplumbob  asked:

Can you do a WCIF of Elliot's apartament?? omg i guess im in love! <3

Yes! I’ve received a couple of asks already from people about some of the objects but I don’t want to clog up all of your dashboards with tons of WCIF asks soooo I’m going to do a whole WCIF of the apartment once I’m finished. That means I will first finish the bathroom and bedroom, after that I’ll make a WCIF list for the entire apartment (and probably put the apartment up for download). 

So to the people who sent me asks: I’m not ignoring you, I’m going to make one big post! (:

I just stumbled on the post where you explain that disabled people are human/sexual beings too, and like... why would you send yourself that ask. It's so transparent. That's really sad.

Troll harder anon. It was a real ask. People who are disabled get this shit all the time online and in person. You reacting this way makes me suspect you sent the anon and are pissed at the comments and support. Run along now little troll run along

@ last few anons I got asking me anti-phan related things: I don’t mean this with any kind of harshness or ill-intent, but there’s a limit to how much I want to be known as ‘that person who publishes endless asks from people who don’t think Dan and Phil are together.’ Especially not when I feel that the answers I’d give you are things I’ve already written in a post within the last couple of days.  

I have no problem answering your questions, just don’t send them anonymously. I am happy to share my perspective. I will respond privately, because I don’t publish anything that is sent to me from a signed in user. You can get your answers and I can avoid losing every non-phandom follower I have because my blog is nothing but repetitious ask responses. You can also send me a tumblr message; same as with signed in asks, whatever you ask will stay between us.

Hi! I saw your post about the interview Camila Sodi did with Adela Micha. I wanted to know more of your thoughts/opinions on it. Personally, I don't really like her but because I grew up watching her on tv and she just rubbed me the wrong way. No hate or anything. Just would like to know your thoughts. 😁

I think there are three important points to put into perspective here:

  • It’s completely normal not to like somebody because reasons. Like you said, there are people who rub us the wrong way and, as long as we don’t attack those people, that’s okay. Let’s just keep on living our lives;
  • Camila is a privileged woman in various aspects, and those privileges might cloud her judgment on things, but what I’ve taken from that interview is that she is somebody who is learning and trying to better herself and her children. Along with what Diego does and says and thinks, I believe their kids will have strong political opinions and fight the good fight. I hope so, at least;
  • I think she nailed it when she said gender-based violence and misogyny are real and need to be fought, and that we should be kinder, especially when it comes to social media, because we’re all just human beings trying to exist in this world, and online bullying and harassment are one step away from actual physical harm (and cause a lot of psychological trauma as well).

Overall I don’t think the hate she gets is fair at all, especially when you consider that when it was Diego in the same position (getting caught making out with another woman) he got patted on the back (while Suki was called every bad name in the history of mankind), so… yes, double standards, much?

dating people with bpd

written by a girl who loves a girl who has bpd

disclaimer: i do not have bpd (borderline personality disorder) and this was written from my experience dating a beautiful girl who has bpd and she proof read it!! i just want to help others whose partners have bpd! this may not apply to everyone because everyone is different but these are things that i have experienced in my relationship!

1. TALK ABOUT BOUNDARIES
this is important for every relationship whether the person you are dating has bpd or not, but it’s crucial for when you’re dating a person with bpd. this is important because certain things that you may not even think about can make them sad or even a bit angry. it’s important to talk about what triggers them and be super understanding when their triggers seem a bit uncommon, and let them explain their boundaries and symptoms they experience. it’s important to be patient and listen to them.

2. TELL THEM WHAT’S REAL
some people with bpd have a blurred sense of reality and need to be told what’s real and what isn’t. even if it’s just the color of their jeans, it is still important.

3. REASSURE THEM
some individuals with bpd have an intense fear of being abandoned, which usually comes from early childhood abuse, and need constant validation to reassure them that you aren’t going to leave them. be patient when they ask if you wanna breakup with them, or if they ask if you’re mad at them, or when they say their sorry for even the slightest of mishaps.

4. DON’T BE SCARED
personality disorders have tons of bad stigma surrounding them and individuals with these mental illnesses are demonized and made out to be like monsters in the media. it is important to ignore all the articles and posts about bpd that demonize them written by neurotypicals. people with bpd aren’t inherently bad.

5. IMPULSES
impulses are things you want to do. some impulses can be self destructive while others are not. most people with bpd don’t have impulse control like those who don’t have bpd do. a thing that works for me when their impulses are self destructive is (assuming that you’re their fp) asking them how they would feel if i did that, or asking them to do virtually anything to take their mind off it. and if that doesn’t work, it’s important not to get mad at them if they do it. they don’t know when an idea is bad or good, so just be patient and understanding and don’t be a fuckass.

6. EDUCATE YOURSELF
educate yourself on the disorder and read about the symptoms. the best person to talk to about bpd is your partner. because everyone is different, it’s important not to limit bpd down to certain symptoms. figure out what your partner experiences and read about those. i suggest following the bpd tag on tumblr or even browse it a bit to get a general understanding of the disorder. bpd is very complex so it’s important that you get a general understanding and realize that it’s not relatable to you. certain posts may be relatable but do not think that you can reblog them, because the extent in which they are felt is extremely different. most people with bpd have very intense emotions and feel things that we feel to a much higher level.

to conclude, dating someone with bpd isn’t hard or scary. however, it is different from dating someone who doesn’t have it. it’ll be hard if you don’t research it or ask them questions or get a general understanding of it, but if you do it’ll be easier for the both of you. people with bpd aren’t inherently abusive, and it is possible to have a stable relationship with your partner.

First Appreciation Post

Come Watson, the game is afoot (again)!! Here is my completed full color Sherlock illustration! I like to hide little easter eggs throughout my work–see if you can find all of the hidden references!

Unfortunately, I lost the post-it note that had the names of all the people who asked me to tag them when I posted the final piece–so I looked back through tumblr and tried to remember the names as best I could! @addignisherlock @anotherwellkeptsecret @junejuly15 @sherlockedwatson @hobbitbilbo @theheartandthebrain

And a special shoutout to @johnlocklives, because I knew I would miss someone.

I hope that’s everyone!

annyeong! I rly like ur art just thought I'd pop in nd say hi! Also on your 'current mood: nap' post, I had a giggle at McCree. He's wearing his prosthetic and it's under his leg nd as someone who used to wear one with a lot of uncovered joints, this always made me afraid to touch people or furry/hairy things because the joints would always pinch the skin or hair off. I just remembered this one moment where I accidentally pinched my neck scratching it and I got asked if I had a hicky. Imagine -

(2)  - (Korean prosthetic anon) @-@ imagine poor McCree getting a little pinch…Though maybe not, it is the future and surely they’ve already taken care of the little problems like that xP anyway sry for rambling, thanks for blessing us with your art.

Hello there! Oh wow! Thank-you so much for sharing this is so nice! ;w; omg i was thinkin’ of that the other day! yeah i wonder if that does still happen they have visible joints, so i guess? but that’s a very interesting thought!

Which member would BTS date?(Compilation)

This is a compilation of the times BTS has answered this question. Please note that I have not included any fan-accounts/post-its because there are many and several of them have been found to be fake. People often make things up. Hence, I’ve only included OFFICIAL sources.

After School Club 2013
Q.
If you had the chance to date one of your group members, who would it be?
V: J-Hope (because he’s clean and tidy)
Suga: Suga
(The others were not asked this)


Kpoppin’ Interview 2013
Q: If you were a girl which member would you date?
A: Jin says Jimin because he thinks it would be fun to tease Jimin since Jimin is so shy and soft spoken.  Rap Monster says J-Hope because J-Hope is like the eomma in the dorm and Rap Monster thinks he would do that much more for his girlfriend.
Suga answered Jimin, and Jungkook answered Jin.
(The others were not asked this)


[EXCLUSIVE] K-POPPED! INTERVIEW WITH BANGTAN BOYS
To Jimin : If you are a girl, who would you choose to date among the members? Who would be the best ‘oppa’ and why?
Jimin: J-Hope. He is the most cheerful person and he takes care of someone well so he can love his girlfriend very well.

Hanryupia 2014 January Issue
JIMIN:「You’re more than a close friend. You’re my savior! So you’re very precious (to me) and I want to be with you even when we become grandfathers. ♥」
V: 「It’s a bit… to accept that kind of love (laughs)」
JIMIN: 「Then, who are you going to pick among the members, if you had to be a couple!?」
V:「Maybe J-Hope. He’s funny so it feels like we can spend everyday smiling/ laughing. And he likes to be organized. If Jiminie brushes up your humor sense, I may think about it.」
JIMIN: 「Shocking! I picked V unquestioningly! (Shrinks down)」


BTS in Singapore
Q. If other member’s were girls, who would you date and why?
Jin: I don’t like them but Jimin is so kind and so gentleman(ly), so I want a date with Jimin.



BTS at Haru Hana Magazine Vol. 22 (Twitter Q&A) [141022]
Q: If you were a girl, who do you want to have a relationship with?
JIN & JUNG KOOK: I choose myself.
SUGA: If I were a girl, I think I would also want to choose myself. (smiles) I’m not playful and not talkative, and I do everything calmly… My personality just like dad.
JIMIN: I choose Jungkook. He gets shy easily which is his cute side. He also has a manly side.
V: I choose J-Hope hyung. Although he is not a funny guy, his smile always make people’s mood become better.
RAP MON: I also choose J-Hope and Jimin. I don’t like bad woman or bad man types. I think the person who likes someone can express their feeling directly is better. If I were a girl I would choose the man that will treat me really seriously. So these two people are my answer.
J-HOPE: I LOVE YOU,RAP MON . I also choose RAP MON!He is a real man, If I were a girl, I will be attracted by his voice. He might compose songs for me, it sounds pretty nice.


SKIT: SOULMATE (Skool Luv Affair)(2014)

V: Hyung, what’s your ideal type?
J-Hope: Me? A girl like you

Question to J-Hope:  In “Skit: Soulmate”, you said your ideal type would be V, is that true?
A: Yes, that’s because V and me usually have a very good relationship - we’d usually make jokes, so when we were recording it, his name just automatically came out (haha). None of what’s in the Skit was pre-planned so it was very realistic.

JHOPE:
Jimin. He looks like he’ll totally obey his girlfriend.

JIMIN:
Jimin! Too charming!

None. I absolutely do not want to date them (laughs).

TRB IN MALAYSIA 2015

This is all I have. If anybody knows any other OFFICIAL sources where the members have answered such questions, please message me and I’ll add it to this list.

I was streaming Star Trek Online and someone asked me about Discovery and I fell into this MASSIVE rant.

So because I like to make videos on youtube in my spare time on Star Trek, I get a lot of people message me. And since Discovery, holy shit. They almost act like I was the one who has cast Discovery, like I am the one in charge. And the SHIT I HEAR DAILY.

People messaging me saying they aren’t watching because the ship is ugly, because there is a gay person, because there is a black woman who is the lead, because she is called Michael. Because there is a Chinese female captain. Because there are too many women. Because there are too many this, or that. Because there isn’t enough white guys. 

That Discovery is this liberal propaganda which Star Trek never was before this.

And I let it out on my stream because I have heard this FOR MONTHS. And I will fucking do it here I am tired of it.

If your dumb ridden, parent disappointing ASS has been watching Star Trek for however many years (and trust me, these people HAVE to tell me how long they’ve been watching like telling me makes me think their dick is big or some shit) and you DON’T think it is a progressive, liberal, diversity accepting show, THE SHOW HAS GONE OVER YOUR DENSE HEAD AND YOU’VE MISSED THE POINT.

From Gene, the man you tell me would HATE that Discovery is being turned into PC bullshit

Star Trek was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms. […] If we cannot learn to actually enjoy those small differences, to take a positive delight in those small differences between our own kind, here on this planet, then we do not deserve to go out into space and meet the diversity that is almost certainly out there.

If you honestly want to fucking come to me, and tell me what Star Trek is “really” about, and that the main lead of Discovery being a black woman is a problem because she is black or that a gay character is in it, then I will keep quoting that man and everything Star Trek has been teaching at your racist, homophobic, sexiest lonely asshole and proving how you understand NOTHING about your precious show. 

You don’t OWN Star Trek. You BARELY understand it’s message. 

I hope Discovery is a huge success not only for itself, but to get your piece of shit hands away from it.

Oh no you’re not going to watch Discovery because of it’s diversity?

You should of never of touched Star Trek if that is your attitude. You are long over due to leave the show alone. Here is the door. Take your pathetic mind and go the fuck through and come back when you actually get the message and aren’t a close minded, anti-progressive shit.

based on this post where lardo and shitty are accidentally pregnant

She was five weeks in and nothing was showing, but she’d been puking almost everyday and had refused Bitty’s pumpkin pie yesterday. Lardo hadn’t told her mom yet, and Shitty refuses to tell anything to his father, but she knows that his mother knew. Jack had called her immediately after Shitty freaked and told him a week ago, before freaking out himself and telling Bitty, who had broken into their apartment in order to make sure she was okay.

“I’m okay, people should stop asking me if I was okay, I’m pregnant, not sick.” She complained to Jack, who only answered by giving a silent nod.

“Shitty’s freaking out,” Jack said instead.

“I know.” She groaned and put her face in her hands. A moment of silence passed between the two before she lifted her head again. “I don’t want to chain him down like this or jerk him around emotionally. I know he wants me to keep it.”

“He wants whatever you want,” Jack said.

She knew that, but she could also read Shitty well enough to know that he was ecstatic and wanted nothing more than to have her keep it. And the scary thing was, she could also feel herself being as excited as he is.

“How are the two of us even remotely qualified to be parents? He’s just starting his job, and I have my job.” And Lardo wasn’t sure that her bosses would let her take a maternity leave. And even more terrifyingly, she just realized that she wasn’t on the life track that she had envisioned for herself with this job. Sports management paid a lot, and Lardo knew she was on the fast track to a good promotion, but now this forced her to look at her life, and she wasn’t sure she wanted to spend it all on picking up after athletes. But she wasn’t sure if she could provide proper care if she didn’t have this high paying position. And it was a downward spiraling mess of disaster.

It was as if Jack could read her mind, or at least the mood in her mind, because he puts a hand on her shoulder and leaned back on the sofa that they were sitting at.

“Maybe you’re thinking too much,” he said. “Just concentrate on whether or not you want to keep it, and trust in your friends to help you no matter which choice it is. We’re a team.”

She sniffed, and suddenly Jack found himself with an armful of Lardo. She let her tears and snot stain his sweater, and he held her through her trembling. When the two of them extricated themselves from their situation, Jack extended a fist, and Lardo bumped it.

“Got your back,” they said together.

The Sixth House: Contempt

Virgos are notorious for being picky and judgmental. Think of a little kid wrinkling her nose at a plate of food, saying “I’m not going to eat that, it’s too greasy” or an old man giving the stink eye to some ‘hooligans’ laughing a little too loudly in public. 

Virgo rules the 6th house, so that energy and attitude may transfer to the sign on the 6th house cusp and planets that fall into the sixth house. 

You may also reject or neglect the needs of the natal planets that fall into your sixth house. Deep down, that kid actually wants to enjoy junk food. The old man misses the days he laughed with his friends. 

It’s a difficult situation, which is why planets in the 6th are often treated as ‘afflicted.’ There is often a conflict between how you think you ‘should’ be, vs. what you want deep down. 

Aries/Mars in the 6th: You are repulsed by people who are selfish, loud, and competitive. You may have contempt for people who are too open with their anger and other emotions. You have no patience for bossy personalities. You can neglect your own inner drive to compete, win, and express anger.

Taurus/Venus in the 6th: You dislike people who are vain, lazy, and materialistic. You may be grossed out by traditionally ‘romantic’ gestures. You might even be turned off by people who are ‘excessively’ beautiful or charming. You might neglect your own need to feel beautiful and experience romance.

Gemini/Mercury[?] in the 6th: You have a lot of contempt for people who gossip or just talk excessively and don’t take things seriously. You have little patience for idle chatter. You don’t like people who are flaky, unreliable, and seem to have a lot of casual acquaintances. You might neglect your own need for idle chatter and talking just for fun. 

Cancer/Moon in the 6th: You’re grossed out by people who seek sympathy, cry easily, are ruled by their emotions, and act cowardly. You have no patience for moodiness or those who expect to be coddled. You prefer to offer practical advice rather than emotional support. You may neglect your emotional needs.

Leo/Sun in the 6th: You’re irked by egotistical, self-centered, self-serving personalities. You don’t like those who actively seek love, admiration, and attention. You have no patience for vanity. People who post a lot of selfies and get a lot of likes might be the bane of your existence. You hate casual dating and sex. You neglect your need for attention.

Virgo/Mercury[?] in the 6th: (Ironically) you’re judgmental of people who are judgmental. You think people who are health freaks are kind of stupid. You can’t stand uptight personalities. Perfectionists can drive you up the wall. You might not like people who are nervous and easily stressed out. This is a good position, so you might not neglect any basic need, but you might want to take better care of your body.

Libra/Venus in the 6th: [See Taurus] Additionally, you have no patience for those who are approval-seeking and image-obsessed. When people do things just to ‘be fair,’ you lose respect for them. Co-dependency is a huge issue. You may neglect your need for approval and partnership.

Scorpio/Pluto in the 6th: You are irked by dark, obsessive, passionate personalities. You have no patience for people who are out to ‘get revenge’ and hold grudges. You can’t stand paranoia or mind games. You may neglect your own need for passion and soul-deep connections.

Sagittarius/Jupiter in the 6th [?]: You don’t like flakes, irresponsible people, or those who don’t take things seriously. You don’t understand mindless optimism. You might think gambling is really stupid. You don’t like blunt, tactless personalities. You might neglect your need to be a little reckless, indulgent, and irresponsible every now and then. 

Capricorn/Saturn in the 6th: You think people who take everything too seriously are stupid. You might not like loners. You don’t like people who care too much about their reputation. You can’t stand workaholics. You might neglect your own need for professional accomplishment.

Aquarius/Uranus in the 6th: You don’t like people who seem to try too hard to be ‘weird’ and ‘unique.’ You don’t care for rebels or intellectuals. You can’t stand erratic behavior and unemotional personalities. You also don’t like people who always have to fit in to a social group. You might neglect your own need to stand out or have a group that you fit into. 

Pisces/Neptune in the 6th [?]: You might not like people who seem to have their head in the clouds. You don’t like people who are weak, apathetic, and manipulative. You have no patience for lies or delusions. You might neglect your own need to escape reality.

**Not sure if this got it right, esp with Mercury, but also Jupiter and Neptune. I’m opening the ask box for questions/comments on this post/your personal experience with 6th house planets and would appreciate feedback. 

edit: fuck it… i don’t know… tried my best… astrology is hard… just leaving this post the way it is… pls don’t take it too seriously…….

facebook and reposting

I know nobody’s here for long spiels, but this might be a bit lengthy… I’d much rather fill my dash with replies to you guys about stuff that has actual substance, or just post art in general, but this needs to be said.

Please don’t message me to ask if you can re-post/re-upload/re-distribute my work. I have an instagram, twitter AND tumblr where I distribute my work. That’s where I’d like to keep it. 

I appreciate the respect you’re giving by asking, but it gets exhausting to keep saying ‘thank you, BUT’…it says clearly on my description page to Not Repost Anywhere. It does not say ‘Please only repost with permission’ it just says Don’t Do It. If you send me IM’s about re-uploading my work on instagram/FB/twitter/wattpad etc, I will ignore it. My silence isn’t an unspoken ‘do whatever you want’, it is a blatant ‘no’. OTL

In terms of Facebook - I respect and admire the effort put in by those who run translation fanpages - but I will also have to automatically decline all of your requests. Not because I don’t want my work to be accessible to those who don’t speak English, but because I’ve had multiple facebook accounts re-upload my work without my consent and with barely any credit/proper captioning of the work. And whenever I’ve tried to fix the issue, I’ve either been blocked, or had the re-posters try and lecture me about how I’m asking for the impossible.

Artists don’t ask for much. We do this for free and because we enjoy sharing our love for a series with the world in the best way we know how - by drawing out our feelings and ideas. It’s honestly a bonus and privilege to be able to earn money from my fanwork/fanmerch, and I greatly appreciate every gesture of patronage. 

Artists shouldn’t have to ‘suck it up’ or be ‘aware that this comes with the territory’. Some artists, especially those who share work on Pixiv, face very real VERY serious legal repercussions if their fanwork is tracked back to them from sites that they did not consent to it being uploaded to. It doesn’t take much to paste a Pixiv artists description into google translate to see if they have said ‘Do Not Repost’ in their native tongue. 

Please respect artists. Please look at our descriptions, read our FAQs and consider ‘why am I re-posting in the first place? Do I have explicit permission? Did I check if they allow this? why not just support and spread my appreciation for their work by reblogging their art post, or telling friends about their blog/twitter/pixiv?’

Artists are not machines made of endless amounts of money, time, or energy. We’re human beings that thrive on feedback, communication, and mutual respect. I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am now if not for the wonderful, kind people who supported and encouraged me on my art accounts. To those who support artists by re-blogging our work and/or keyboard smash their thoughts at us, I love you dearly. To those who support artists by purchasing our prints/keychains/charms/standees/zines? You guys are phenomenal, we couldn’t do half of what we do without you. 

To the re-posters however? And to those who try to lecture artists about the Ways Of the Internet and how Reposting is Inevitable? The solution starts with YOU, not us. Mutual respect and honest communication, please utilise it.
