One of us should probably say something. About what? I don’t know, the moment? Remind the men in whose name this fight is to be fought? You think they’ve forgotten? No, but
…we are emotional beings, after all, and rhetoric is the fuel that feeds the fire. For 10,000 years, a man anticipating conquest - has stood before his army -
I haven’t seen any Parsley fanart That’s unacceptable
THIS WAS VERY… Experimental? There’s a few things I’m not happy with but overall I’m trying to improve my poses and effects…. Y’know. So that they’re not always stuck at the same ¾ angle. So please excuse any mistakes, I’m just…. learning, I guess!
I’ve included a version WITH the Lucidia on it, and without- Cause I couldn’t decide which I liked more.
mental illness out here killing so many people and crippling and destroying so many lives and yet in the black community so many people still have the audacity to deny it’s existence or think that it’s “white people problems.” I don’t know how much more real it can get.
Here’s a list of things that I appreciate hearing from customers (especially when I’m slammed, dealing with register problems, have been bullied by previous customers, etc):
1. “It’s not your fault” This is so important. Over half the time it isn’t our fault- register problems are out of our hands, sold out products, a limited number of available cashiers (ex: 8 cashier lanes, 2 working cashiers) refusing an expired coupon, or being unable to use multiple coupons- all of these things are things I have no control over- they’re choices my manager made, corporate rules, or policy- and I appreciate it when a customer understands that instead of throwing a temper tantrum.
2. “You’re doing just fine” This one seems silly… but I struggle with anxiety and after a rude customer I tend to make a lot of mistakes because I am trying to rush, or I’m worried that the next customer is going to treat me the same way. When a customer sees that I’m nervous and they take a moment to assure me, it centers me and I feel less tense.
3. “How are you? *waits for your response* Please/Thank you/I appreciate it” Manners are SO appreciated! I feel less-than-human at work because of how people treat me, so when I get a customer who respects my basic humanity and thanks me for my time it’s very refreshing. We are all people and should be treated with the same respect you would give to meeting someone new.
Private Eye Nagachika is the gummiest gumshoe in town. He’ll leave no rock un-turned, no clue un-traced. But he may have met his match in Sasaki; the popular lounge singer from the rough side of Tokyo and rumored hired killer. Sasaki has hired the detective to help him rediscover his forgotten past and the two of them get on like a house on fire. There’s just one problem- Sasaki bears a striking resemblance to Hide’s missing childhood friend, the only case he was never able to solve.
Finally got around in participating in @stanuary. Sadly, I was a bit busy last week to post for the first week (plus my brain would not come up with anything). Stan protecting his whole family is everything so here’s the scene that still messes me up and will never get over.
So I wrote a ghostbusters musical with 50+ songs (including Hamilton, heathers and crazy ex girlfriend) and it has holtzbert, mental health issues (because I apparently take my problems and reflect them onto fictional characters) and Jonathan groff as Kevin’s boyfriend. And so far the people I have messaged the song list to have loved it. Honestly I could talk about this thing all day so if anyone wants a chat I’m here
While not seen as much of a staple of fish communities as others, the cherry barb is hardly a fish that should be overlooked. One of the easiest and most peaceful barb varieties out there, these cherries would be a wonderful addition to many mid-size to large community setups.
I understand Beauty and the Beast has its problems. I get that making Lefou Disney’s first gay character is hugely insulting. I get that Emma Watson’s dress should have been left to a professional. I get that overall this is basically Disney doing it for the money.
But today was my first shift at the cinema since the film came out. I counted four little girls dressed up as Belle- one had a little tiara, and another had a rose. And there were hordes more going with their parents. There were families and couples all eager to see it.
I’ve heard so much of people spitting bile over the film’s flaws, which is fair enough, but I can’t remember the last time I heard someone say anything positive. Which is a little sad.
“No one here hates aces+aros… not at all… did u know ur orientation is TMI though. Don’t talk about it in polite company plz. And did you know that u r like a fandom with every privilege imaginable and no real problems. Also aces+aros on tumblr r so terrible haha. But more or less only on tumblr is what I’m saying, so it’s not like I hate aces+aros in general. lol but must be cool to have no worse problems in life than getting called a plant once. Also better not make any ace+aro headcanons under any circumstances of characters who belong to oppressed groups such as neurodivergent characters or characters of color, that is never acceptable, like why would you do that ever. Did I mention yet that ur orientation is TMI…”
Or: if someone claims “the discourse” is not anti-ace/aro in any way all, that’s the time to sigh deeply and leave probably
