“It’s about a prostitute, but not in a misogynistic or glamorising way. I was, like, 19, and I met this woman who I didn’t actually have sex with, but she was a prostitute. It was my obsession with the utilisation of femininity, and how it has power over everything. Over intellect, over anything that a man holds dear to himself. I think that that song is an ode to how I was very impressed with her as a young man.”

sorry I'm a bit late, but I had to add to the usopp love. I've always been a fan of Usopp because he's easy to relate to personally
You’re not late!!! It’s never late to join the Usopp Love ♥
You’re right ^^ I think we have enough characters without flawless or that are always right. And then you have Usopp, a “coward” who always lies and have to make stupid treats to his enemies. But that’s not something that we would do?
I mean, if I have to fight against a creature which definitely is more strong than me… of course I would be scared.
We know that Straw Hats have their own style to fight, this style is based on what they’re good at or they know how to do. Nami has her Clima Tact, Franky have his weapons, Brook sometimes use his music, Chopper use his knowledges of medicine/anatomy to defeat the enemy, etc.
Usopp, is good to make new inventions, artifacts, is an excellent sniper and well, he’s good to lie.
Sanji said “I’ll do what you can’t and you go do what I can’t”.
The Monster Trio is known because of their monstrous force, unfortunately many people love more those characters because they are strong, they aren’t afraid and they can’t be defeated, and when you meet a character like Usopp, well is hard to like the character. He’s not strong and he’s afraid.
And we forgot or we don’t see Usopp as a person. A normal person like us. Can we put on his shoes? And think about all his fights? Because… wow, how did he not die?
All he used was his abilities, sure some of them were dirty tricks or lies, but is what he knew to do. Is what he is capable to do. And we have to learn a lot about him.
It’s ok being afraid and that you’re not strong. But do whatever you’re capable of to help. To help your nakama. And all the fights he has won were for helping his nakama. And without know it, he has become stronger and brave.
Now, all I can say is that the Usopp we knew is just the before of the Usopp we know now, who is no far away to become a brave warrior.
Eyyyy~~ So I was thinking about that Elsens are good workers. They do whatever their boss told them to do and I guess they always did a good job. Then I was wondering what if they are told to be bodyguards. lol
yeh, so I did this. Zacharie and Sugar are precious pair. If they are real it might be like this *nope*
I am actually thinking to do a batter and queen version and an undertale version. _(√ ζ ε:)_ but my school homework is getting many. I think I’ll just put them in my might do-or-might-not-do-list.
I always wondered how the heck did Rose fill an entire fountain with her tears? It was a ludicrous image, her literally crying a river to fill it… But after Steven’s Dream, that doesn’t seem so farfetched.
If Rose was super empathic as Steven (and I think she was), she could have being crying the diamonds’ tears. Imagine their pain right after the shattering of Pink Diamond. Those are enough tears to fill a fountain.
Okay, so of course I had to do something for Valentine’s day. I wanted to do something bigger than this, but I was sick today and just couldn’t get myself to draw anything more haha. Also, I thought up this pun ages ago and I finally wanted to use it. Happy Valentine’s day everyone!

just a tip: for young artists, it’s probably best to steer clear of the internet before you reach an older age like later teens.
take your time to ENJOY your art and love it. find some personal friends to share your art with.
the internet is VICIOUS. nobody will give a damn if you don’t draw something along the lines of fanart or memes. it will only make you feel worse and pressured to please the tough crowd.
the internet will likely kill your art drive. i’m not even kidding. if before, you’d draw because you love it… the internet will make you draw what it wants you to. eventually you draw not because you love to, but because the internet tells you to. and most likely you don’t really have the passion for it anymore and you feel dead inside.
the internet is a popularity contest. it does NOT look for skill 90% of the time. no matter what you post, if you’re popular, everyone will love it. no matter your skill level, if you’re NOT popular, you’re nothing. and the internet WILL make sure you get the message.
followers are just numbers. do you even know who your followers are? why get obsessed with how much you have, then?
fans are just fans. some of them will end up your friends, most will leave you when they are no longer interested in you. just as some people treat them like mere numbers, most of them will treat you like an object.
popularity isn’t forever. someday you’ll be in that one corner of the internet when nearly nobody will remember you. you may be lucky if you actually hold out long enough, but most figures are entirely forgotten.
do yourself a favour and love your art in the purest way possible and stay out of the net til you think you’re ready. LOVE YOUR ART. love yourself. take care out there, darlings.
Wow has been a while since the last, hasn’t it? This time: Star vs the Forces of Evil (Spoiler alert!)
Sooo I just watched all the new episodes and this is just something burning in my mind. Is Toffee related to Star?
Like okay. Let’s start at the beginning. In the Episode “Baby” it was revealed that Star is the most powerful in her ancestry since Eclipsa. In “Into the wand” we learned not only that Toffee was immortal. I don’t now how many generations lie between Star and Eclipsa, but with Toffee immortal this is not relevant for my theory. Which is: Toffee might be Eclipsa’s son. Or at least was really close to her. Why?
Toffee had in the season 1 finale the chance to claim the wand for himself. Instead he told Star to destroy it and became part of the “evil wand” (as we learned in “the hard way”). What I always was wondering about was, how did Toffee know the whispering spell or that it was the first spell she had learned from her mother? My idea: Eclipsa told him. Maybe it is tradition that the first spell you learn is the whispering spell. If that’s true Eclipsa must have learned it the same way. When she ran away with her monster boyfriend she probably had to leave the wand behind (to have some peace maybe?). But that doesn’t mean she wouldn’t tell her child about it.
My other point is kinda silly but stick with me here okay?
I have the feeling we will get LOTS of parallels between Star and Eclipsa. At the end of “Baby” the shot from the portrait of Star to Eclipsa’s kinda made that obvious. Both look very somber but as we know that’s not how Star really is. So what if Eclipsa is not “The queen of darkness” like the stereotype but kinda Star’s future if she goes the path of “evil”.
That’s Eclipsa’s husband (?).
That’s Star’s ex.
They seem to have the same type don’t you think?
Star had her moment where she realized that the monsters are not purely the bad guys. They have been wronged too.
Then there is the dark magic stuff. The only chapter in the spell book about it is in Eclipsa’s chapter. Which is ALSO the chapter Ludo looks at when Toffee takes over.
(attention! Huge spoiler in the next paragraph!)
We have seen that Eclipsa is frozen in a crystal. She’s not dead. So I’m 99% sure we get to see her soon. (With the crystal loosing it’s power. Pizza guy was freed trough a punch) And I think we will see a more matured Star in her. Still silly, but she understands the world more and sees through all this good vs evil lies the Mewmans believe.
In “the hard way” we see Ludo’s minions rebuilding a place “his wand told him about”. So probably a old base from the war or something that belonged to Toffee or Eclipsa and her husband. We also learn that Glossaryck knows Toffee. He can tell who he is only by hearing his voice, so he even seems to know him pretty well. He belonged to Eclipsa once so maybe he kept an eye on her even when she left Mewnie?
I also think it’s fascinating that Toffee seems to be his real name (I thought he told Ludo a fake one till that point). Don’t you think Toffee is a really stupid name for someone so sober? It can’t be a name he choose so it must be his birth name. You know who loves silly names? Star.
If Eclipsa really is the “evil Star” like I suspect than it would make sense for her to look at cute little baby lizard and be like “He looks like a Toffee!”.
I don’t know anything about monster anatomy in Star. But I’m pretty sure that that
IF it can reproduce, doesn’t make sexy lizard mans. So maybe he was adopted when he was little? Like all alone and sweet Eclipsa took him in? That would explain his devotion to freeing her (I suspect that’s his goal with all the foreshadowing).
The man BLEW HIMSELF UP for crying out loud just to get into the wand. Why he did that and didn’t just take the wand I don’t know. But I’m sure his plans will make more sense after some more episodes. Also I’m 90% sure his goal is to free Eclipsa. I don’t know why else they would show her in her prison.
At last he fought Moon in the war.
Look at the skulls. They have the same symbols on their cheeks (?) as all the lady’s in the butterfly family (and miss heinous, but that’s another can I won’t open).
Maybe he did that to look more menacing to them? But STOP look who also has spades on her cheeks:
She would be probably frozen at this point so maybe the monsters are trying to get her back and fail because Moon and the wand? The diamond skull representing defeating Moon and the spade-skull the trapped Eclipsa?
I don’t know. I’m tired and exited and overthinking things. But I think it would be really neat if they really go down that path with this show!
(EDIT: probably way to late but I changed the error with calling Eclipsa’s spades clubs. It was 4am and they are not called that at all where I am from okay? Even if nobody actually cares about it except one person and me)
my abuser used to purposely make me feel embarrassed about being so young & naive but like … I never realised that in saying those things she was acknowledging that she thought I was basically a baby when she did What She Did
