hey tumblr is back

Hey, Tumblr. We’re back with another round-up for Mental Health Month. This batch o’ blogs are resources you can turn to and organizations you can rely on. The best part is that they’re so, so easy to access and utilize. Here are just a few of them.

Crisis Text Line (@crisistextline)

Crisis Text Line is free, 24/7 support. If you’re in crisis, please text 741741 from anywhere in the US. The Crisis Text Line will connect you with a trained Crisis Counselor. If you don’t need to use their services, consider signing up to be part of their services. All it takes to become trained in crisis counseling is a desire to listen and help others.

To Write Love on Her Arms (@twloha)

To Write Love on Her Arms started as a Myspace post. Since it took off, they’ve donated more than $1.5 million to treatment and recovery programs, granting funding to 73 different organizations and counseling practices. They have a pretty good repository for finding help, with listings easily found either by location or reason you’re seeking help.

National Alliance on Mental Illness (@namiorg)

When it comes to making the world a better, more understanding place for mental health, NAMI (nearly) does it all. Across the US they educate to make sure people are getting the help they need, they advocate for public policy, and they listen. You can reach the NAMIHelpLine at 1-800-950-NAMI (6264) or info@nami.org.

It Gets Better (@itgetsbetterproject)

It Gets Better Project wants to create and inspire change for LGBTQ+ youth. While they do suggest hotlines to call for immediate help (like The Trevor Project), their primary objective is to spread the message that, well, it gets better.

If you don’t live in the US, you may haven noticed most of these are US-based resources. Don’t worry. We have you covered too.

An ex-SOLDIER: First Class, CLOUD STRIFE came to Midgar to start a new chapter of his life as a mercenary. At the invitation of his childhood friend, Tifa, he accepted a job with Avalanche. He may bring his buster sword to bear against Shinra troopers, but he does not care for plight of the planet. For him, this is a job and nothing more.

calamarispider  asked:

im planning on making a comic, and i have an idea im really excited about! however, its kind of vague in my mind, and im worried about motivation. i wanted to ask if you have any tips or suggestions in any sense, as someone who has made a fantastic comic and all of your doodle ones too! also, apologies if this is an ask youve gotten similar of before;; i spent nearly an hour and a half at /least/ trawling through your asks but youve answered so many;; thank you, have a lovely week!

no worries, I appreciate you making the effort! here’s something I drew for patreon a while back- it’s for drawing on the whole but a lot of these exercises are very helpful when I’m struggling with motivation or feel that I’m stuck in a rut

that last ‘draw draw draw’ should be replaced with Draw, Rest, Draw but otherwise these are all things I’ve learned and use to keep going!

wwx wanted to do poses that were more scandalous but we told him no…………

& no matter how many times we begged, lwj refused to give us anything more interesting :/

Hey tumblr, good to be back after what… A few years? :>
I’ve decided to remake this blog to use for Fairy Kei aesthetic purposes. 💙
I’ve been into the Jfashion style for a long time but I only recently started diving deep into it.
Like this post if you’re a pastel, Fairy Kei, Decora, Jfashion, Harajuku, kawaii, anime, or just an aesthetic blog of a similar style. 💙

Within your heart lies a single golden arrow.

You pull back, and release.


@callmearcturus there is not a single page I don’t want to draw from this fic.

“He wanted to thank them, but Grimm still could not form any words to say. Instead, he reached out with an arm and scooped little Ghost into his embrace alongside the child, holding the both of them close.

If little Ghost was surprised at Grimm’s act, they did not show it. Instead he felt a pair of tiny arms attempt to wrap themselves around his chest, alongside a small pair of wings. He let out a shuddering breath, and with the little bit of strength he still had Grimm leaned back up against the padded wall of his resting place, wrapping his body and the children he held in his cloak like wings.

“It is alright my little ones” Grimm breathed shakily, finally finding his voice, though it was hoarse and barely a whisper. “Everything will be alright.”

He received no verbal response, but he felt the two children snuggle closer. He closed his eyes, breathing in and out slowly and shakily as the lingering panic still within the corners of his mind slowly ebbed away. He held them close, allowing them to grant him their warmth and comfort which helped guide his mind away from the orange filled darkness and back into the warm comforting light of the scarlet flame, as he closed his eyes and fell back into a blissfully dreamless sleep.” – Broken Flames; written by @bloo-the-dragon
