(This took me WAY too long to make but, this is my first Character Reference, so please excuse how choppy it may look. He is also based off of me.)
I really have NO WAY to thank you guys for this. I never expected to get so close to 300 so quickly!! Gosh thank you guys so so SOOO much for this!!
I would make something for this, like a raffle or something but I’ll wait a bit. I’m currently a bit overwhelmed by the amount of other drawings I still have to finish, but whenever I reach another high number, say 340-350 (Or just 300) then I shall make something for the occasion. Hope you guys understand!
Again though, thank you all so much for following this blog and for all the nice asks/comments you’ve been sending to Sunrise! It’s always greatly appreciated!!
Sometimes I feel like someone could be a generator for me (as opposed to a nine-volt battery) by making me feel truly understood, cared for, and loved, or that I could be a generator for someone. Like if this person just acted this way, or I just communicated to them better… they could do it for me, or I could do it for them. So I always took the common saying that “only God can truly fulfill your needs of loneliness” with a grain of salt. Not that we don’t need God, but sometimes people don’t feel longingly lonely because of the downfalls of other people.
Maybe this has taken me way too long, but I think I’m realizing that that’s never going to happen. Because they’re not going to act the way I always imagined, and I will always have limitations that others won’t understand.
But then maybe I’m going to meet someone that will continue to try to understand, care, and love, and even stay even when it gets hard– and I’m going to do the same. And because we try to love like that, it’s going to glorify Christ. Not that we won’t have downfalls and hurt each other, but we’ll stay and we’ll fight together. So in that way there won’t be struggles with loneliness?
Hm, but even with that, maybe you’d still feel lonely?
Idk where I’m going with this. I’m confused and probably need to think more. These thoughts are extremely under-developed. If you had thoughts on this today too, hit me up and let’s talk about it. Night~
Follow forever results are up. This took me way too long - sorry. Again, banner by the kickass prescrption. I’m not following all that many blogs because I’m really behind on my networks so this isn’t going to be all that huge. Anyways, here are my wonderful mutuals that I am incredibly grateful and gay for in alphabetical order. Enjoy, and make sure to follow these quality nerds.
I’ve been reading @pinesonfire ‘s responses to stuff about Dipper and just wanted to talk a bit about him and Mabel myself. It’s no secret that in the fandom, Dipper is the favourite twin. Mabel gets SO MUCH SHIT for doing things. And we all know why that is, right? Because she’s a GIRL. Whether we want to admit it or not, we’re basically told to root for the male characters in everything. We’re too aware that girl characters have been portrayed incredibly poorly for a very long time so we have a tendency to highlight girls’ behaviours and scrutinise it much much more than we do boys’ behaviour. There are so many male villains who are very morally bad about a lot of things but we still love them and find ways to explain their behaviour to make them redeemable. I do it too (especially with a certain Marvel Norse God), but if we took a moment to picture the character doing the EXACT SAME THINGS as a woman, we cast them aside as being evil and irredeemable and horrible characters with no depth. It doesn’t help that they show a lot of boob. Basically, if Dipper and Mabel’s genders were swapped, the fandom would almost definitely be on Male-Bel’s side moreso than Dip-Girl’s.
An episode I see highlighted A LOT is Sock Opera. Dipper wants to find the password to access the laptop and Mabel says she’ll help. Mabel sees a boy and instantly gets a crush and wants to impress him and make him her boyfriend. She chooses to do that, after panicking in a conversation with him and making stuff up to impress him. She tries to make good on those white lies because she CAN. She decides to do this over helping Dipper with the laptop.
But the thing is, she doesn’t say she won’t help him anymore. She says she’ll help him as soon as her puppet show is done. The puppet show has a small window of time, the laptop doesn’t. Dipper goes ahead and tries to do it by himself anyway, even though he could wait a couple of days. He could have helped Mabel and got the puppet show prepped sooner and they could have started with the laptop sooner.
If you’re reading this you might still be thinking that Mabel is selfish for doing the puppet show over helping Dipper. But the thing is…having an epic summer romance is Mabel’s WHOLE goal. Way before Dipper wants to solve the mystery of the author of the journals; in the first episode Mabel tells us that, and we see that she has tried a handful of times already. She’s already working on her goal whilst Dipper whinges about having to work in the gift shop. If it hadn’t of been for his whining (which I can only assume is the real reason Stan picked him over Mabel to go into the woods), he wouldn’t have even found the journal. For all he knows until ATOTS, the author is long dead. He’s just an interesting puzzle to solve over the summer, which can be resumed next summer. Meanwhile, Mabel’s summer romance is easier to reach and already in motion. That was her idea of a good summer. If you think about it, Dipper’s sudden author chase (and Wendy chasing) has sabotaged Mabel’s ESR quite a bit.
People also bring up the Time Traveller’s Pig as well. Whilst Mabel’s goal in that episode (getting Waddles) was new, it was still on a timer. And she ACHIEVED it. Dipper made a mistake and Wendy and Robbie happened to get together. When a solution arises, Mabel is only too happy to help him out because she wants him to be as happy as she is. But when Dipper achieving his goal can only happen in a version of events where Mabel doesn’t get Waddles, he refuses to give it up. Waddles would undoubtedly be a friend to Mabel and make her happy. She got what she wanted and tried to help her brother. Dipper tried very hard to resume his uncertain casual friendship with Wendy. There was no saying that she’d suddenly want to go out with him just because he didn’t accidentally hit her in the face. And we saw that she didn’t. Dipper was incredibly selfish in this episode because he was willing to sacrifice his sister’s certain happiness with his uncertain happiness. He only gives in after seeing just how upset Mabel is, and she appreciates it!
I love both twins equally and I identify with them both SO MUCH. They’re just a couple of kids in a bizarre situation, which means that typical kid selfishness is harder to get away with. But they’re learning quicker, which is good. And they really love each other a lot, which I, as an older sister, am so pleased to see on a show. Because it’s REALISTIC and sibling love is AMAZING. I’d be lost without my brothers, and Dipper and Mabel would be lost without each other.
