So I am a strictly mobile blogger and I have to ask since I see it in your blurb every time: what tf does jalapena mean?! ~ sincerely, a confused anon

*honey, you got a big storm coming vine starts ominously playing somewhere in the background*

well first of all i blame @thesylverlining for……everything :’) xoxox

if you’ve followed me for more than five minutes you know that my partner (the aforementioned) got me hooked on Gargoyles and i am kind of in love and also obsessed with this 90′s disney cartoon, like, to an outrageous extent, that only my partner likely understands…..which is why i am going to marry them someday

like look i wish there was an easy, acceptable answer to this, but there isn’t. i’m honestly this level of obscure fandom reference garbage. this is my lot in life. i live here now, okay. 

jalapeña! comes from Gargoyles and it is….it’s hard to explain lmfao so…….Goliath, aka halloween dad, big purple gargoyle clan leader dude, is voiced by the coolest ever Keith David, and i guess Keith David had this quirk, this thing he did where he would shout “jalapeña!” instead of hallelujah, which he picked up from a blues singer i think? who did it bc who fucking knows why

and from what i understand there was some kind of bet to try and fit this into the show somehow

a show….about medieval gargoyles…..put under a magic spell for 1,000 years, who wake up in manhattan in 1994, and proceed to fight robots and fae creatures and fucking shakespeare characters bc, you know. it was the fucking 90′s. why not, said greg weisman. 

why not indeed.

(this is my favorite show okay…….?????/!!!)

so they did work it in - in the episode “protection” (i honest 2god didn’t even have to google this…..i am a masterpiece of a person tbh) where Elisa, aka fucking kickass super smart and also hot detective in the red leather jacket, goes undercover to try and infiltrate this low level mob-type character named Dracon, aka Xanatos wannabe ding dong idiot, and at some point in the episode they eat jalapenos together (who fucking eats just straight up jalapenos out of a jar????)

at the end of the episode Broadway, aka my big blue son, gives Goliath a jalapeno, who has clearly never had one….and then he shouts “jalapeña!” 

and from then on they used it throughout the show as a substitute for like “holy shit” basically and…………..

sylver if ur reading this, are you proud of what you’ve created. i love you bye

a few monster girl things for femslash february.

  • a vampire lady whose wives help her with her hair and makeup since she can’t see herself in a mirror.
  • ghost girlfriends who ‘haunt’ the local gay bar, innocuously changing the music to the jazz that played when they were young. the owner loves it and remodels the bar to match.
  • a centaur and a faun who live in a cute forest cottage with wide doors and an apple orchard in the back. the faun does the gardening since her wife can’t comfortably reach the earth with her human hands, and the centaur picks the apples from the tall trees.
  • a gorgon with a gargoyle girlfriend who can always turn back from stone after looking into her eyes.
  • a siren who will die if a ship ever sails past her cove, and her harpie girlfriend who snatches up the sailors that try to resist the song.
  • werewolf wives with eight children. they are total soccer moms and the rest of the pta was terrified of them for months, but they won the other moms over with an amazing shepard’s pie at the potluck.
  • scylla and charybdis, cursed to half-lives as monsters living across from one another in the strait, find comfort in each other’s company. sailors talk of the pass between them narrowing at nights, truly impassible.
  • monster girls who love other girls (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧

Goliath from Gargoyles. You have no idea how badly I want Disney to make Gargoyles an animated feature. I’m on a personal mission to remind people how awesome this show was. You’d be surprised how many people I’ve talked to that have never heard of it. Lets start a petition or something.

ALL OF IT IS ON NETFLIX NOW so Please Rate it 5 stars and Buy the Blu Rays. You may not think much of doing that but Remember the only Reason this show came back was cause of DVD sales and Adult Swim

So Check it out 

The happiest moment of my teenage life...

…was seeing two characters I shipped before I knew what shipping was share an onscreen kiss.

That pair was Goliath/Elisa from Gargoyles.

They were my first OTP, and they were canon.


I said “they’re gonna fall in love” the second they met…

…and they did. Slowly.

And I…

…in turn…

…fell…

…in love…

…with…

…them.


You never forget your first OTP.

Lexington. Still waiting for someone to wise up and make a Gargoyles animated movie. Somebody, go make some phone calls and get cracking. Until then, I’m just going to keep going with these paintings. I’m trying to do these so that, at the end, I’ll be able to have a nice line up. 8 more characters to go.
