how i wish i was this fan

here’s my piece for the @notyourpuppetsfanzine !! it’s a fanzine that illustrates how themes of abuse were handled in gravity falls without romanticizing it. this project is really important to me and it was an honor to work on it with all the other amazing artists and organizers. i wish i could have put a little more work into this piece but i’m overall happy with it. hope you like it too!

Roman Reigns Appreciation week: day 7 happy 32nd birthday to Roman.

I wanna wish a happy birthday to the guy, Roman Reigns. I’ve been a fan of his since the shield days. He’s amazing in the ring and outside the ring. I love how goes out and performs for his empire despite what the haters do. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for him. Roman is no doubt a future hall of famers and possibly inducted twice for himself and being a member of the shield. I’m proud to support Roman and will always be a fan.

Kishi has a screwed sense of the female mind.Going by kishis manga it seems like he thinks females prioritize romance.Sakuras whole character was "I must get stronger to save Sasuke-kun" the man she loves.Hinata-"I wish I could stand by naruto-kun."the man she loves.All obsessed fans are female,as if girls spend all their time obsessed with the cool,hot,popular boy.I know they were little but most girls aren't like that to guys in real life, he based p1 sakura on how he saw girls(annoying,mean)

That’s not true at all.

  • There’s far more to Sakura’s character than saving Sasuke, and saving him wasn’t her only incentive to get stronger.
  • Hinata’s desire to stand by Naruto’s side doesn’t mean that she “prioritised” romance.
  • Not only were those two not “obsessed”, but just as a little reminder, the entire reason that Obito caused all the shit that he did in the series was because of his own love life. He’s by far the biggest example of an “obsessed” character who “prioritised romance” above all else, and yeah, he’s male.
  • You’re allowing a ridiculously small minority of fangirls towards Sasuke at the very beginning of the show to influence how you think apparently all girls were perceived.
  • And no, that’s not what Kishi based Pt.1 Sakura on, because Pt.1 Sakura can’t be described as such in the slightest at any point after chapter 33.

Yes, Kishi has said he sometimes struggled with writing the female characters, but the manner in which people can blow this out of proportion sometimes is more than annoying. Kishi doesn’t have “a screwed sense of the female mind”.

-not to offend anyone-

So lately i thought a lot about BTS and their apprearance on the BMAs.BTS has always been a Band who received lots of love and attention but as a bts fan since 2013 it makes me kinda sad to see them becoming so  popular.

Of course i wish them all the best but my problem is more the fandom.Back in 2014 when “War of Hormone” got released some people were  like “yay” and then it was over.As a fan who was there right from the beginning you feel kinda betrayed when abrutply everyone WORSHIPS BTS after they released “Fire” and  “Blood,Sweat&Tears”.

My point is that BTS always was my favourite band,they were/are chill guys and i love their work.Their entertainment understood the concept of how to promote a kpop boysgroup.I just feel like loosing them to everyone else who is just here because one direction splitted or whatever may be their reason.To me the whole Fandom “ARMYS” seems pretty fake ( not at least because of the fights on Twitter between armys and directioners).2013 everyone was in the same boot and the atmosphere was just So much more relaxed.

I just want those chill days back when no 13 y/o little “army” got offended when someone expressed his/her opinion on the band.Like can’t we all just stop giving a fuck on everyone else’s buisness and just give our favourite artist the love they deserve?

Ooooo scandalous 👀👀👀 what was that about Hide/Kane fans being petty and immature.

Literally wishing for death and ending up in hell is on a whole other level of pathetic. I thought I should feel ashamed of my behavior.

I’m not upset. I’m more amused at the effort that went into that post. But other than that? Meh. It’s meaningless to me. I don’t know how other people would feel, but I feel, well, meh. I’m not going to change my stance on my feelings towards tou/ken or touka either.

What a thing to come back to after graduating. I made it. 🎉🎉🎉

rebel-with-cause  asked:

I dob't know if my message was sent or tumblr ate it, but I want to say again that you are an amazing writer and artist (your fics and fanarts are amazing!). I'm not a big fan of first person pov in fics, but your fic SOA is amazing and one of the few I like! Also, your drawings are amazing, I wish I knew how to draw!

I got your message!  I’ve been out running errands this week so I hadn’t gotten around to the compliments in my inbox. I usually answer questions first bc I never know how to say thank you 😅  

but thank you!  I was hesitant for the first person pov, just because it is usually cringy (and still feels a little cringy even now), but TSOA pulled it off, so I tried to follow Miller’s steps until I could stray from her style a little bit.

as for my drawings, they’re usually just a conglomeration of meshing together different references until I have what I want, so I wouldn’t say I really know how to draw so much as mimic what I see. but the thing is- no one knows the difference when the final product is something new, and by now I can make a picture without references just from having practiced copying other people’s talent.  so don’t be quick to decide you can’t!

That photo of Sarada in Sakura's genin outfit reminded me of how much I loved that dress. Especially the black and white chapter cover of Sakura with a fan. The one where she has her dress unzipped and she has a mesh shirt underneath. I wish Kishi let her unzip/reveal the mesh underneath so she could try diff. outfit styles. I mean Sasuke got a onesie for Heaven's sake. Haha

(gasp) !!! I do like the 90′s ninja looks that Kishi designed with T7 and all the other ninja in like chapter 1. With the mesh shirts underneath and the wrapped bandages * - * My favorites is Sakura and Tenten because they both wear quipao-like garment as their ninja outfit. But yeah, sometimes I wish they showed off more ninja mesh outfits too.

Jin + self-confidence for anonymous
Jin: There are a lot of fans who ask me, “How can I become confident like you, Jin?” For me, my breathtaking visuals are my main point. In my case, I focus on one strength, and continuously show it to others.

5th April, 1994.

23 years ago, the world lost a great musician and human being.

23 years ago, Kurt Cobain tragically died, leaving behind him fans who are still hurt to this day and who miss him dearly.
I never got to experience how it would be to lose a person who means so much for you, and even though I wasn’t around when Kurt was alive, I feel like I have known him enough to have the tears forming in my eyes and a dreadful feeling filling my soul. A feeling of depression and emptiness inside
of me.

Rest in peace Kurt, wherever you are.

I just wish that you would know how much you mean for a lot of people all over the world. How much your music meant to us. How much we love you and cherish you as a human being.
Wherever you are, I hope that you would finally reach Nirvana.

Rest in peace, you wonderful human being. You may be gone, but never forgotten.

PSA: DRAG IS NOT CONSENT

So I went to drag con this past weekend (and I could write paragraphs on the experience alone, but that’s a rant for another time) and the first thing my friend and I did was attend the UNHhhh Live panel. Overall it was a special and amazing experience, but ONE THING, or should I say person, marred it.

This person decided it was a good idea to get up and read PORNOGRAPHIC fan fiction ABOUT Trixie and Katya OUT LOUD to Trixie and Katya. – AFTER THEY ASKED HER NOT TO! Trixie straight up said “no, please don’t.” and the bitch goes “Oh, just a few” and proceeds to take up 5 entire minutes (which doesn’t sound long, but trust me, it’s a lifetime when only 15 minutes are allotted for questions, others are waiting to ask theirs, and everyone in the room is uncomfortable) reading them DESPITE THE QUEENS’ EXPLICIT WISHES!

Let me be VERY clear here. I don’t care how well you THINK you know a queen because you’re a fan, you never, EVER have the right to put someone in that position. They were kind enough to humor her for one, but despite the fact that both queens and the captive audience were visibly uncomfortable, SHE WENT ON! Trixie had to FORCIBLY stop her mid sentence on her third (and most explicit) reading. It was truly awful. I later learned that Trixie’s boyfriend was also in the audience making the whole situation even more awkward and embarrassing.

I don’t know who this girl thought she was, how old she was, what possessed her to think this was a good idea, or why no one cares enough about her to stop her from doing this, but what she did to those queens is COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. Please spread the word, tell your friends and neighbors, that NO MEANS NO, even in drag. Please remember that these queens are real people, they still reserve the right to a certain amount of privacy, and they still deserve your respect. DRAG DOES NOT NECESSARILY EQUAL CONSENT.

Thank you.

Happy Valentines everyone!

I love Noctis and Luna so much. I really wish they could have been together more in the game, breaks my heart…

I only wish we could have seen Natasha’s face too, when she basically publicly declared her love for Elise. How she looked at her, and her expression as her voice cracked on those words.
I know they both laughed and turned it into a joke. But you don’t just say something like that on an international stage, in the middle of a serious and heartfelt acceptance speech, during a highligh of your career and in your most emotional state, JUST TO TROLL the fans or tease each other. There was no need to add a joke there. It felt much more honest and intimate than just a tease, it felt to me like she couldn’t help adding that, couldn’t help expressing what deep feelings she has for Elise, whatever they are. I wasn’t expecting anything like that and it moved me.
No matter how they define their relationship, only they can know what’s really between them, but the love is so apparent it hurts.

Hey there everyone! WHOO! Finally got a reprieve, as I’m done with my drawings for my final project, now I have to continue typing the written parts.

Done largely in part because I love the lore, practice drawing human characters, and to pass the time whenever I need a breather from from college.

While researching for the lore of Dark Souls for my In-progress AU Comic, I noticed how LARGE the mythology of Dark Souls and the deities that reside, along with the fan speculation of which god corresponds with whom and etc. In spite of all this, from what I can tell, outside of Gwyn’s family, there has never been a, for lack of a better term, “compendium piece” of the gods and goddesses of dark souls, so I made my own :D

Because some gods are not represented in imagery, I decided to design how they might look if they ever showed up amongst mortals. I owe a lot to Tumblr, Reddit and the DS fandom as a whole, the amount of theory and lore discussions are always gold, and of course, the lore-lords like @vaatividya and @silver-mont, their vids are always interesting to watch :)

From the Top Row: The Bearers of the Lord Souls

Gravelord Nito: No need for an explanation here xD

Gwyn, Lord of Sunlight: Drawing him was easy, but here I wanted portray a very stern, no-nonsense god king who really, REALLY is someone you don’t want to piss off, and someone who is almost NEVER happy and/or satisfied.

The Witch of Izalith: I’m honestly surprised there’s not much fanart of how her face might look like, so I pitched in. She basically resembles her daughters, but with a more matriarchal vibe, with a stronger jawline and sharper eyes to reflect that. She’s also very tall, towering over Gwyn and just slightly edging out NK in height.

The Furtive Pygmies, featuring Manus and a Pygmy Lord: With the Ringed City revealing that there were SEVERAL pygmies, I had quite some fun with the speculation and possibilities of how the Pygmies as a whole looked like.

Personally? I simply interpret them as humans but more, with more power over the dark soul, but otherwise having different roles in society like regular folk, the Ringed Knights are Warriors, the Lords are the rulers, etc.

I put Manus amongst them, why? Because no way should ONE man be able to have THAT much abyss power just because he’s a human. Since the dark soul is divided amongst humans, I interpret him having a huge chunk of the Dark Soul (as per these two threads), and thus was simply a mighty sorceror who happened to be really, REALLY old, even by Pygmy standards. Plus I always wondered… How does one torture a dead man? The Mad King was described as undying, so according to my own logic, he wasn’t totally “dead” when he was buried. His grave could signify him wanting a modicum of peace, after all, his entire race was basically put in a glorified prison by Gwyn… Sensing the growing madness within him (probably due to sheer isolation), he probably decided to “die” on his own terms in Oolacile… then future idiots proceeded to listen to TOTALLY NOT SUSPICIOUS AT ALL SERPENT and dug up his grave.

The random Pygmy Lord is basically representing one of the first Pygmy Lords.


Second Row: The Children of the Gods

The Nameless King, Firstborn of Gwyn, God of War: In a short period of time, has become my favorite character amongst the gods… There’s so much of a story to tell from him, his relationship with his family, the reasons as to WHY he betrayed the dragons, and thanks to lore threads a-plenty, I interpret him as one of the most honorable and dedicated of the gods. He watches over his warriors of sunlight even if they ARE humans (whom Gwyn HATES) AND he protects Dragons. Despite meI head-canoning him bigger than Gwyn and is in general a wall of muscle and armor, he’s STILL shorter than his sisters.

Gwynevere, Goddess of Fertility: Gwynevere here I interpret as one of the nicer gods, so I made her expression to reflect such. Because Gwyndolin’s illusion of her may be simply him projecting what he remembers most of her and thus potentially exaggerating certain aspects, I toned down a lot the “Aphrodite-esque” glamor, in favor of a more personable look, though still decked out.

Filianore: The daughter we know even less of than Gwynevere, but thanks to a certain reddit thread that discussed how dedicated NK was to her via the floral carvings that is present in Archdragon peak… She must have been someone who NK was VERY close with, so I interpret her as the “Always trying to bring life to the family” kind of sister, though closest to her eldest brother.

Gwyndolin: The Dark Sun himself. Not much else to say here, I just wanted to draw him happy for once… Because WHY FROM? He really, really needs it.


The Daughters of Chaos

Quelana, Mother of Pyromancy: Due to her own title, I interpret her as the Studious Daughter, incredibly dedicated to her craft and always finding out ways to further her pyromancy… Until the Chaos Flame incident happened of course… Then she became wracked with survivor’s guilt…

I also interpret her as being the responsible one looking out to make sure her sisters don’t do anything too brash… Though in hindsight, that would make her suvivor’s guilt worse.

Quelaag: The most well known Chaos Daughter, and whom I interpret as The Aggressive Daughter, hence why she’s the only one of the sisters with a melee weapon. As the most in-your-face daughter I head-canon that she is the one who lowers down her hood the most, especially when she feels like challenging someone. Also VERY protective of her family.

Quelaan, The Fair Lady: Last but not least, I interpret Quelaan as always having been the shyest and nicest of the daughters. Her hood is more drooped down compared to Quelana, to highlight her shyness.

Fun fact, while trying to find her real name, turns out the name Quelaan was the name the community gave to her, and just became established fanon, so I just opted to name her just that.


Third Row: Other Members of the Larger Pantheon

All-Father Lloyd: Gwyn’s uncle, founder of the Way of White. Now there IS speculation that he’s not real, but here I interpret as the real deal, and thus looks like a wimpier, older version of Gwyn, yet still has an aura of authority. I used a bit of Paladin Leeroy for his crown, because I interpret that, when he REALLY needs to get his hands dirty, he too wields a mace, setting an example to all paladin-esque worshipers after him.

His clothes are tattered despite being the godly equivalent of a pontiff, to highlight two things:

One, despite him being a “lord”, his tattered look is to signify he is not “above” the rabble/his followers.

Two, I head-canon him becoming slowly more insane and full of hate toward the undead,as more and more of his family and friends either dies off or leaving home… He eventually disappears for unknown reasons and becomes forgotten.

Fina, Goddess of Love: The most popular candidate for Gwyn’s wife, or at least his first, I wanted to design her with the Embraced Set in mind, just modified to look more queenly rather than armor. Going by the general fanon, I interpret her as the mother of both NK and Gwynevere, but due to unknown circumstances, just up-and-left. Why? I dunno I haven’t thought that deep :(

Also wanted to try out and giving her a different look, skin-tone and facial wise compared to all the other gods and goddesses out there.

Velka, Goddess of Sin: My favorite goddess, her lore and weaponry associated with her is cool, but even with DS3 and all its DLC, I wish we got to know more of her and how she even became the one to hold the title of “goddess of sin” and how she absolves it. She is also, I noticed in fan-art and fanfic, the other most popular candidate for Gwyn’s wife.

Due to the fact that both Gwyndolin and Filianore are associated with illusions and magic, I interpret her as the mother of Filianore and Gwyndolin. She has sharp features and very pale skin, and share’s Filianore’s dark hair.

For her design, I compared aspects of the Statue of Velka from DS3, and both Oswald of Carim and Cromwell the pardoner. I didn’t want her to strictly dress like Oswald and Cromwell, so I incorporated more feathers to her outfit to give her a more “regal” look, as befitting a goddess, and not just pardoner. Funnily enough, with her book of sins and outfit, she also gives the aura of a medieval judge.

Caitha, Goddess of Tears: The third goddess associated with Carim, and one that I intentionally kept her eyes hidden. Mentioned in both 2 and 3, I want to reflect her constant “mourning” nature, and since ‘Gentle Prayer’ is associated with her chime in DS3, I thought her being in a position of prayer would be most appropriate.

Nahr Alma, God of Blood and Murder: Take Titchy Gren, make him more beast-like in proportion, now make him the size of Father Ariandel with the animalistic agility of the Orphan of Kos or Slave Knight Gael, and you have the God of Blood himself. I interpret him as a kind of god that is shunned by the rest, and is mostly treated as an attack dog, and nothing more. REALLY resents the other gods.
