‘Cosette is ill with a malady which is going the rounds of the neighbourhood. A miliary fever, they call it. Expensive drugs are required. This is ruining us, and we can no longer pay for them. If you do not send us forty francs before the week is out, the little one will be dead.’
Sant Jordi is coming, so here’s a list of Catalan words about legends and fairytales.

Literally, “and they lived happily and ate sweets. Vet aquí un gat, vet aquí un gos, aquest conte ja s’ha fos: another common sentence to finish the story. Literally, “here is a cat, here is a dog, this tale has already melted”.
And some names of famous tales/characters:

When it was revealed in @zarla-s’ handplates that Doctor Gaster was using the bros’ plates to track them, some folks wondered if they couldn’t just remove their hands to avoid detection when they escape. This comic shows why that would be a terrible idea, but let’s just handwave that for a minute and imagine what would happen if that plan actually worked. I just kept getting this scene in my head and cracking up so I had to draw it. Where did Sans even learn that gesture…
I’m sure if Papyrus had thought of it, he would’ve fashioned his hand into a thumbs up to show there’s no hard feelings. :P
U guys know what’s fucking annoying?? Glasses. Ye I mean idk why I’m thinking abt this now but it pisses me off. And before someone who has never needed glasses goes “glasses aren’t all that bad UwU” lemme explain myself:
I don’t have many insecurities abt my body (lies) n I’m generally v accepting of parts of me that have been with me for years, like my birthmarks, my weird thingy on my chest, my weird elbow scar n stuff like that. But one fucking thing that I’m still rlly annoyed n insecure abt is my eyesight. Or more particularly, my glasses. I’ve had them since I was one, ONE FUCKING YEAR OLD N YET IM STILL INSECURE. U wanna know why?? Bc I was teased bc of my glasses n how “blind” I was. Bc ppl would laugh at the fact that I was cross eyed n ask me to “do that weird trick with your eyes again”. Bc sum shitty ppl think that glasses=ugly. U know what?? That’s in da past, but I still struggle now. N here’s why:
Filters are especially made for ppl without glasses, so every time I have 2 fucking take off my glasses 2 take cute pics, thus making myself feel ugly with my glasses. The fact that I’ve been told 2 “take off ur glasses before u fight” during wrestling matches n thus losing bc I can’t see SHIT n then I feel super weak bc I can’t fucking win without my vision!1!1! N tons of other little things!!! Like makeup!! N models never rlly wearing glasses!! But also characters in books/movies/… that never wear glasses except if they’re like, nerds or scientists lmao.
So imma just say this 2 ppl without glasses: never say “oh u look better without ur glasses” or stuff like that. Normalize characters with glasses. N for the love of god, DONT FUCKING WEAR GLASSES IF U DONT NEED THEM!!! I KNOW ITS A TREND NOW BUT BINCH PLS DONT!!!
2 ppl with glasses: u look gorgeous!! I know sum of u don’t hear this enough, but ur glasses suit u n u look great (in both senses lmao)!!
(Also respect @ ppl that can apply makeup without their glasses,,,teach me ur ways)
Gems become transformation trinkets that have certain powers ups that you can mix and match(But no one does because it might not work and Adamant would kill them)
The Lunarians are monsters-of-the-week that want to take the gems to revive their master.
Antarc works during winter because it’s -5 out and ain’t nobody working in that. Also the beach of beginnings is a magical
Rutile fixes the gems because they’re trying to fix Pad’s which works like five times a year. Pad is really lazy and sleeps like 23 hours a day but has been working as an MG the longest and teaches everyone the tricks and tips
The shell people are the mascots.
Phos can make themself sparkle, which attracts Moon People. No one actually knows why the Lunarians love the green MGs so much, but after losing GD and Chrys’ gems, Phos and Jade don’t want to find out.
Cairn and Ghost share a gem (Half of it belongs to Ghost, the other Cairn) until Ghost’s half and a bit of Cairn’s gets taken by the Lunarians when Phos screwed up. Before that they always argued about who should transform to fight.
pyrocynical is a blessing, and i’m so happy i found him when i did. he’s probably my favorite youtuber, and he deserves so much more than what he has. i really hope his youtube career grows and he surpasses leafy, because he deserves, more than any other commentator on that sight, to be successful. i honestly wish him the best in life. he’s adorable, and has a very good heart. he clearly cares about what he’s doing, and is trying to improve. it’s so nice to see him making facecam videos, because it honestly feels like a really big step on the channel. not only that, but the fact that he features and credits fanart in nearly every video is so admirable, and it just shows how he does care about his fans. he doesn’t try to provoke drama anymore, and purposely avoids making videos on it, which is incredibly respectable. he’s not perfect, and he has made mistakes in the past, but he tries his hardest to amend those mistakes, if he recognizes them/if he can. the fact that he removed one of his videos because of misinformation, and how he reached out to h3h3 after the podcast just shows how far he’ll go to make amends. i don’t know why i decided to write this, but my point is that pyrocynical is a really, really good youtuber and person, who deserves so much more than what he has.
conclusion: pyrocynical best youtuber
p.s. pyro and hyojin are absolutely precious, and i love how much he admires her, and her talents in art and animation. i’m so, so happy for them.
HAHAAAA if you asked this thinking I didn’t think of TONS OF BACKSTORY FOR MY NOT EVEN RELEVANT YET OC’S YOU’RE WRONG.
Neither of the twins have crushes on Kei, but that’s ok. He’s already got enough ppl after him. Shou DOES have a sort of childish crush on Kasumi. Sachiko… is bisexual! But she tends to be more attracted to girls.
I’ve had several short stories planned for all of the kids, but since I won’t be getting to them anytime soon there’s no harm in letting you guys have a treat. I cobbled together a little relationship chart for the Inu-tachi’s future offspring.
I actually dug up a whole Raindrops SessKag family tree that I had made for my fanbabies a while ago. Maybe someday I’ll post it up in it’s entirety for you to see.
Bonus points for anyone who can figure out how Shizuru and Yoonsuh are related to the Taisho siblings!
Topic of the Day: Post-Apocalypse! (as in, after the end of the world, not after the next movie–although I am very excited to see what fic we’ll get for that!) What better way to start a new year than to read about the end of the world?! :D Check out more post-apocalypse fic here.
The world has been irrevocably changed, swept clean by war and disease. Charles and Erik meet on the abandoned island of Genosha to discuss twin futures: theirs and mutantkind’s. Not all paths lead to salvation, but everyone deserves a second chance.
aka: Love is complicated.
Notes: a lonely reunion fic where Charles and Erik visit each other at the end of the world–with lots of introspection and quiet emotion. Beautiful.
Living while everything around you is dying and things you need to survive are scarce can be hard. Collecting a group of people who can hardly even reach his elbow, Erik sets out on a journey to find a safe place to wait out the destruction of the world around him. It’s not easy and he encounters loss, fear and a danger of losing everything he has now for a chance to gain something he misses, but hope is hard to kill and his hope is waiting for him in Westchester.
But not everything can be predicted and life tends to play cruel jokes on people that need light the most. The world will burn and there’s nothing any of them can do about it. Besides, won’t it be better in the end?
This is a story about a journey, hope and survival in a post-nuclear world where none of these things can be taken for granted. We follow Erik as he struggles to keep everyone in his little group safe and sane while not losing his own faith in the semi-happy endings. He’ll have a chance to change everything for the better, but will he succeed in not making the same mistakes?
Notes: I love this story so much. The non-linear narrative builds to emotional plot so well. Guh.
Charles Xavier is a decedent of the few mutants who survived a massive radiation blast meant to wipe out their kind. He is also a Runner. He rides his motorbike across the desert in the darkness of night, dodging a dangerous landscape and giant armed sentries who are intent on wiping out any mutant they find above ground. He’s one of the best, but lately he’s been distracted by his dreams; dreams of grass, sunshine and a metalbender from the stars who tells him he loves him.
Notes: The world-building here is fantastic! Very exciting read.
—Love is fragile —she was thinking —but perhaps the pieces are saved, the things that hovered on lips, that might have been said. The new love words, the tendernesses learned, are treasured up for the next lover.
Post MTMTE 40, Perceptor doesn’t mind/is chill with Brainstorm’s silly antics ————— as promised, some art I did from 4 months ago :D (because i can’t post the trash comics yet. im so sorry.) This was supposed to be composed of a few more arts of Rewind touring the Lost Light, but i gave up. (i even did a medibay one, including Ratchet and Velocity, but i had trouble coloring it, and couldn’t finish in the end. i’ll post it someday maybe). Drew this as an excuse to draw them happy :D. because you only get to see them either bickering, or serious, doing serious science, or idk… Perceptor is always depicted serious these days, i missed his jovial G1 self. And, give me happy Brainstorm any day :)
(Brainstorm is gonna ask Rewind for a copy of his video.)
