i am really proud of these images

Cinco de Mayo is about to start, so let's make some things clear:

Hello there! Diego here! (That… that’s seriously my name.) As some of you may know, I am of Mexican origin, and I would like to make a few things clear about May 5th you may or may not be aware about.

1. Cinco de Mayo is NOT the date of the Independence of Mexico.

That’s right! Mexico celebrates its independence in September 16th, or more likely, the night of September 15th, when traditionally they make the traditional Grito de Independencia by midnight, which is a reenactment of the legend of the night revolutionary priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla called mass in 1810 for the people to rebel against the Spanish government.

“Cinco de Mayo” also known as “La Batalla de Puebla” (The Battle of Puebla) is a commemoration of a victory in the battle against French invaders that arrived from the port of the state of Veracruz. Albeit not a strategically decisive battle on the war, it is important on national pride as a moment in which a tiny new country without virtually any funds by the time of 1860s defeated such a super powerful army which were the French.

2. “Sombreros”.

Ah yes.

The “sombrero”.

Just to put it straight: Sombrero just means “hat” in Spanish; at least Mexican Spanish. We tend to call sombrero to any kind of hat, that is if we are not using the word “gorro/gorra” alternatively.

The “sombreros” you usually see in every single stereotype you may imagine are based a mixture of the charro outfit and the way poor proletariats would dress around the dawn of the 20th century whom also were an emblem of the Mexican Revolution of 1910. (Another national celebration that goes in November 20th.) Slavery was already illegal in Mexico, but these people were exploited in a disguised system in which the workers were paid (miserably) and all of their expenses would be controlled in stores they were only allowed to spend at; those stores were also owned by the proprietors of the land they worked at.

The stereotype has been so reflected in so many places inside and outside the border it has even been reclaimed by the Mexican people themselves.

“Oh, so is it okay for me to wear one?”


By the way when I mentioned “charros”, I mean a traditional type of horsemen that follow their own set of etiquettes and styles, and it’s also practiced by women who are not only beautiful but also super badass.

3. Maracas.



THEY ARE MORE OF A BRAZILIAN THING.EDIT: Actually no, they are not Brazlian at all either.

Much like the sombrero, if you “went to Mexico” (Tijuana, Cancún, Mazatlán, Rocky Point) and they gave you maracas with vivid colors on them, there is absolutely no cultural importance behind it as souvenir of Mexico. Mexicans love to point at, laugh, and exploit the cultural obliviousness of tourists. Especially American tourists.


4. The mustache.

This one is a bit strange, albeit kind of true in some regards.

The mustache is an international symbol of masculinity, and Mexico is a country full of machismo, albeit “caballerosidad” is also one of the qualities in the Mexican etiquette which involves respecting the autonomy and individual identity of women, always approach to a non-violent solution, and a general attitude of politeness to both men and women; that said it is not impossible for a Mexican to be misogynistic as well.

ANYWAY, the mustache is kind of a downhill-snowball stereotype that may have started in just seeing many Mexicans having a mustache, but so do a LOT of American males as well, so uhhhh… it’s a very strange label to pin on Mexicans over all.

5. Tequila.

I actually don’t mind if you drink tequila. You kinda support the economy of my country and it’s an actual cultural thing that I like it when it’s spread around.

Just remember that it is NOT drunk with a worm in it. That is mezcal. Its like tequila’s wilder cousin. And no, it has no mescaline.

6. Other stereotypes.

  • Sugar skulls are a cool thing, I guess. No, they have absolutely nothing to do with Cinco de Mayo, they are part of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) which is celebrated in November 1st.
  • “Do not drink the water” is a weird stereotype I have heard. I would not simply recommend you to drink untreated tap water anywhere. Period. We have water purifiers everywhere.
  • Mexico is what I call a “second world country”. It is not as developed and advanced as the United States, but it IS civilized in a great way we count with continuous technological developments and lots and lots of progressist enthusiasts.
  • Mexico is not proud of drug trafficking. It’s an extremely serious problem that has the entire country terrorized and I am really exhausted of all the attention they get from dumb Hollywood movies rather than the real Mexico. Do not talk about drugs. Do not talk about narcos. This is a very delicate topic that many people overlook the impact it’s had with Mexican people in their identity. Please.

  • I persist. Do not, seriously, DO NOT associate Mexican people with drug dealers, drug lords, “narcos”, or any other extension. If you seriously STILL wonder “what the big deal is”, I dare you to Google “narcos” on the image search and look at all the horrible things they do to the innocents. (It’s seriously fucked up and triggering with blood, gore, body horror shit.)
  • Mexican people have contributed with some groundbreaking contributions to science and technology and the way we are leading our lives. 
  • > Mario J. Molina is a chemist who discovered the causes of ozone depletion in the atmosphere.

    > Guillermo González Camarena patented the first trichromatic TV color transmitter in 1940. 8 years before Peter Carl Goldmark presented it to CBS and took most of the credit.

    > Luis Ernesto Miramontes co-developed “the pill”. Props.

    > Andrés Manuel del Río discovered vanadium in 1801 which is used to strengthen steel further and is applied from bicycles and hardware tools, to dental implants and jet engines.

  • Yes, Mexicans are actually laid back. No, they are not inherently lazy.
  • Mexican people are culturally masters of improvisation and creativity, this leads them to engineer creative solutions to everyday problems. Just felt like sharing this fact.

Ok so this is all I have right off the bat, and I wish you a happy Cinco de Mayo. Have fun, get drunk, party on; I don’t care, we don’t care. Just have these things on mind.

TL;DR: Please do not do/say anything racist.

Happy Anniversary Underverse!

Thank you @jakei95 for being such a huge inspiration! 

On a side note I am really proud of this art. For the first time in a long while I really focused and pushed myself. <3 A lot of the designs of the characters were also heavily influenced by our cosplays.

Woo, 1K!

It’s that time again, folks! Time to celebrate another milestone, this time at THE BIG 1000. I’m only nearly 100 followers late this time, all thanks to a massive surge of new people from reblogs of the Land of Labyrinths and Libraries.

For your consideration on this special occasion I give you this sicknasty

Thank you all, once again, for your continued support and interest.

The Land of Cults and Chandeliers: Part 2

Part one can be found here.

The chameleons living here have been working on monuments for each of the previous milestones, and are downright giddy to be bringing you a fourth digit this time round. So excited, in fact, that they wanted to display it where they live rather than the topside dust-bowl which has come to characterise the endless search for new and interesting lands to share with you (and the background of the blog!).

Of course, there was a lot of competition over which chandelier city would be host to the new carving, especially with how competitive they all were before, but in the end a decision was made and they picked a spot. The cultists try to keep their composure, but their excitement is palpable.

The Land of Cults and Chandeliers was described just over a year ago by the wonderful and talented @classpectanon. Provide a classpect and some personality strengths and weaknesses and you too could have a slick land and quest described for you!

Wow these took a while! Lots to see, lots to do. Fun to be revisiting the first land I ever drew, seeing how my skills have changed and evolved over the last year.

Fun fact: I am “bad” at character art. I can draw it, but it takes me a damn long time. The character part of the final image took as much time as the rest of it did, easily. That said, that’s the first character art I’ve really been proud of in a long time. Feels good.

Keep your eyes peeled for a proper post about the Land of Mist and Heat sometime soon, and here’s to many more milestones to come.


Sent to my website email this morning - Subject: Enough Message: Enough of the gay stuff on Bright Sessions. Please we are begging you. Sent on: June 2, 2017.

So here we are, two days into PRIDE month. How’s everybody doing?

I’m going to start off by leaning into the mic and saying with full-throat clarity: “Fuck you…you fucking fuck”.

I am a gay man…and before that, I was a gay kid…a scared and angry kid who had so much internal homophobia brewing inside of him that he thought he might explode because nothing in the world was convincing him, or trying to convince him for that matter, that it was normal and okay to be who he really was. And I can tell you, when I was that scared kid, shows like The Bright Session were almost non-existent; and what a shame.

I would have cried from happiness if The Bright Sessions existed when I was a boy. Shows like The Fosters, Glee, Eye Witness, Riverdale, Shadowhunters…shows where I could see myself on the screen in a way all of my heterosexual friends could without question since birth. 

Today I turn on the radio…and 99.999% of the music is, narratively, written/produced with a straight audience in mind…and in some cases/genres it’s used to target and ridicule me and my sexuality.

I live in a world where gay men are being thrown off of rooftops and “exorcized” in Chechnya because they are seen as aberrations; less than…underserving of love and existence. I live in a world where in my own country, a venomous discriminatory fear-based movement validated by the election of their figurehead sent a resounding message that my rights are actually up for debate.

In a world where there is so little positive reflected back at me…so little out there saying that my truth and the stories that express my life and experiences on this earth are valid…in a world where I feel like every day and every breath is a stand to qualify my existence…In that world, I get a message that tells me “enough of the gay stuff”. 

So…to the person who sent this message, I feel sorry for you; I genuinely do…I truly, genuinely and absolutely do. How terrible your life must be, and how delicate your self-image must be to reach out and say something like that. At first look, the message is mean and evil…but then the shaky-ground of masculine fragility reveals itself, as it always does, and I pity you. 

This is Pride Month…It’s meant to celebrate the LGBT+ community and our allies by opening up to share the beauty and diversity of our lives with everyone. I am proud of who I am…and it took a damn long time to get here.

I can’t really speak for Lauren, our creator/show-runner, or the rest of the cast, but…we have a gay character, a bi character, a lesbian character and a “no labels at this time” character confirmed as canon in The Bright Sessions…and I’m here to tell you we will never “enough with the gay stuff”. We are here to celebrate the people and stories that matter to us…Caleb, Adam, Mark and Rose are my friends; these are the people I have in my life and I think you’d be lucky to know. So yeah, no…not “enough of the gay stuff”.

Y’all remember the “freedom 101” music video by George Michael? There was a lot of symbolism and meanings about his image and label, using music and videos as his voice to fight against his fake image was GM style and that what Louis exactly did and that’s why George would be really fucking proud of him as much as I am

i can’t think about it without wanting to burst into flame he loves the people in lgbt history and educating himself on their lives and i’m sure they’d love him too

thank you for the endless amount of laughter you’ve provided for me throughout the 11 episodes, and the little clips that mnet posted. from before ep1 during meringue time when you spilled the egg on your head thinking it was solid to ep 11 when you were under unimaginable stress yet still showed us a bright image of yourself through your teasing with the other members and self-made choreo in super hot. although i will miss seeing you weekly, i really hope you get the rest that you need. p101 was really tiring, right? you have honestly brought so much joy and eased the tension in many situations because of your free spirit and optimistic views. although i am devastated that you didnt get to debut through p101, i am so so proud of you and how you’ve handled being in the limelight only being 15 years old. i am always rooting for you no matter what, and i cannot wait for you to show us more of your charms when you debut through cube. 수고했어, 선호야. i hope we will be able to soon meet again.

So I just randomly did a search for slbp on google (yes I do that sometimes) and fell on this.

Look at this.



I never saw it before, after playing since slbp launch. I feel so satisfied, like this is the real ending of Inu’s main story pals.

Here you go @fragranceofroses! Now you can hear Lily’s beautiful singing♥
And this is for all of you that cannot see the video because it’s not available in your country.

The songs are so awesome! The titles are also quite interesting, although Tsubaki’s is a bit hard to translate properly so, I’m gonna try explaining the meaning behind the kanji (but wow,despite his last song, this one is quite upbeat). Time for a mini Japanese lesson xD.
So yeah the name of his song “Soushitsu Parade” with the first word written like this in kanji 喪失 (soushitsu) which can translate as “loss” or “deprivation” but it has a more heavier meaning. The first kanji actually means mourning while the second one is used for the verb to lose  失う (ushinau).
In Japanese, there area lot of compound words such as these that express a more deeper meaning, for example this word “soushitsu” can be used to say “amnesia”, basically the loss of memories ( 記憶喪失 kioku soushitsu) .

So you see, it has a much deeper than just using “ushinau”, which means to lose something, to misplace something/an object.

My interpretation, since there is that first kanji   that means “mourning”, could refer to someone (or more people) that are departed, as in dead. I don’t know if I make much sense…
If the title had been like this 喪失のパレード where the particle の (no)  that shows possession, it would have been easier, at least for me to translate as “The Parade of Mourning (or grief) or maybe it can work and and also be “Lost Parade”. Actually when I first saw the title and knowing how ambiguous the songs usually are, I translated as “Parade for the lost ones”. This is more like adaptation xD.
Anyway, Tsubaki’s song is so upbeat despite it’s title. Let’s wait and see how the full version will sound and just what he is singing about there ^_^
(Sorry If I bored you guys).

The other interesting title would be Lily’s “Glass Rain”, quite a peculiar imagery there, oh but his voice so gentle♥
Misono sound so determined! I am so proud of him :) And the title of the song seems to reflect what happened after “that event”, and discovering things that were hidden from him. I heard him singing about “bonds” and that he wants to be able to protect others. So beautiful !!! ♡^▽^♡

Licht of course has an angelic image to his song that means “Wings” while Hyde’s sounds really romantic ♡´・ᴗ・`♡ “The one and only you” (can I imagine that he sings to Licht? xD). He has some lines that say “Don’t go”, “I only want to embrace you” (kyaaaa Lawless your song is so beautiful too!!!)

Crazy For You

YoungK and word prompt - train :) (gosh I went for someone else this time, be proud of me Mami :D) As always, I love your fics <3

Note: Yas finally a Day6 prompt! ilysm ♥ I am proud of you even if you request changki or other things! you’re amazing @laviette plz excuse this terrible fic I tried to make it great like you.. i couldn’t

If anyone was to ask someone at Younghyun’s local high school what he’s like, they’d tell you that he’s handsome, charismatic, all tied in a bad-boy image. He plays in a rock band with his friends, and doesn’t give anyone the time of day with romantic attention. It’s a cliche ideology, really; the heart breaker. But everyone has a reason for the way in which they act. In Younghyun’s case, it’s all because of you.

You’re a contradiction to his image, but creative all the same. You carry around art books instead of a bass, and paint brushes instead of a mic. He’s enthralled by you, the way your fingers work their way around the artistic equipment, and how they create such beauty on a canvas.

He’s spoken to you a lot, but rarely on the grounds of the school. The two of you live near each other which is why you find yourselves taking the same train home. That was when he realised that he had finally fallen for someone.

At first he thought he’d gone crazy. It was late, around 11pm as the two of you waited for the train to roll at the station. He watched you; you were wearing a black and white striped top beneath a black pinafore dress. You had a rucksack on your back, and a large folder in your arms, carrying your creations of the day. He thought it was the tiredness that washed is brain, but each day that past he found himself feeling a little stronger towards you.

It was the virus in his heart that caused him to turn this way; turning away other girl’s affection. They weren’t the same as you, in comparison, they were plain and easy. He endured a lot, his only wish to keep you safe and happy. That was why he took a punch to the eye while beating up the old drunken creep that tried to touch you up on the station one late friday night, the reason he gave you his jacket when you shivered even though his whole entire body felt like ice.

A shriek snapped him from his thoughts. He shook his head, “crazy” he mumbled to himself as he ruffled his fingers through his hair.

“Whose crazy? You wouldn’t be talking about me, would you?”

Younghyun looked beside him, almost jumping out of his skin from shock. “Jeez {y/n}, don’t sneak up on me like that!”

You giggled, “It’s not my fault you were away with the fairies.”

Younghyun playfully rolled his eyes, hoisting his bass that was wrapped in it’s case further up his shoulder, only now realising it had been on the verge of falling. He looked at you, and he wasn’t sure how blood wasn’t rushing to his cheeks.

“Well anyway, to answer your question I wasn’t talking about you… well I was… but not- what am I talking about right now? I’m so tired.” He covered his face. He’d jinxed it, the blood was now rushing to his face.

“You’re not wrong. You’re crazy” He watched you smile through the gaps of his fingers.

“Crazyfurmou.” he mumbled.

“Pardon? I didn’t catch that.”

He loved his hands away from his face, “Crazy for… you. I’m crazy for you.”

Neither of you noticed the people moving around you, or the train that waited at the platform until the shrill of the whistle broke the moment like shattering glass. Younghyun felt stupid, and felt as though he probably looked even more stupid because of his now embarrassed emotions.

You stretched out your hands, he looked down, remembering how captivating they were and watched as they intertwined with his own. He was sure that his heart was going to jump out of his chest. No one had ever made him feel this way before; it scared him to think how much he’d be affected by your first kiss when he felt so exhilarated by a simple hand touch, never mind anything else.

You pulled him onto the train, taking a seat on the mostly deserted cart. You sat closer to the window, gripping his hand. You looked back at him, seemingly jumpy even though you’d been the one to initiate the touch.

“What? Did you not mean-” Your face flushed, your hand loosening on his, but he gripped tighter.

“This is what I meant, {y/n}”

Your face relaxed, your hand turning more comfortable in his again. You opened your mouth to speak, and Younghyun was expecting you to question him about this, you didn’t. You closed your mouth again, settling for a comfortable silence and Younghyun decided that he wanted to stay on this train for the rest of his life.


I decided to color my Anti drawing in Photoshop.  I am incredibly proud of how it turned out!  

After seeing Jack’s Antisepticeye video for his panel, I really wanted to put the words “Always Watching” somewhere in the image, but I couldn’t make it work without blocking the original drawing.

So, of course, I made a gif.  It’s my first gif to make and it’s crap, but I made it, and I am proud anyway.  

Feel free to share this, but please don’t steal my art.  Thank you.

If @therealjacksepticeye sees this, I hope you like it.  Keep up the good work, Jack!


AND SHE IS FINISHED! I am so proud with how she turned out! I really wanted a personal image of her bc Persephone is very personal and special to me so it makes sense to have created the image myself. I’m also happy to have it done before she left for the Underworld since I’m planning on devoting myself to her before she leaves. Now I’m inspired to do the same for the other gods, especially Aphrodite. That’s going to be a huge project though since Aphrodite is basically bae.

WHY DONT WE DAY IS OFFICIALLY HERE!! Im so extremely excited, happy and proud for the boys, because they’ve come so far in just a year! They’re currently in London and although I’m kinda sad because chances of me seeing them are low I’m still freaking pumped because they’re getting to explore the world!! Like I’ve said before words cannot describe how much love I have for the boys and how proud I am that they’re doing what they love! Here’s are some little drawings I’ve been working on for the past month, they didn’t come out the exact way I wanted them to but I’m still really happy with what I’ve made! I hope the boys will go on for many more years being happy and doing what they want! I love Why Don’t We! I have posted these images on some of my other social medias (Instagram: @arts.ay and twitter: @ola_what ) once again I just want to say that I’m so so so proud of my boys!

Imagine: War is coming, and the students of Hogwarts all know it. Tonight, they’d just like a break from it all. They just want the chance to be rebellious teenagers again.

Summary: Down to the lake, where the trees decorate their favourite clearing, the Marauders want a night to be the kids they truly. With Wormtail left sick in the common room, {Y/N} is tired of being stuck in the middle of her friends’ love circle. Finally finding their chance, Remus and Sirius decide to finally ask her something they’ve had in mind for a while.

Request?: Nope. I had the idea of a cuddly campfire time, and @cyborgtamaki directed me to the Harry Potter genre.

My ideas of the characters in this have come from @wewillrise-rpg, who I stumbled upon when trying to visualise this story (although, Remus is more shaped in the image of Andrew Garfield tbh, whilst the other boys stick to their casting)

A/N: I am really happy with how this turned out! At first, I wasn’t too sure if it would work. But now, I’m really proud. Let me know what you think. Enjoy, my little bookworms 🖤
