@natvanlis: Sometimes I wish I could go back in time and tell the twelve-year-old girl that got shoved into lockers what her life is like now.

Some Guzma fast drawings

(In the Spanish version of the game, we have “Skittolate” instead of “Tapu Cocoa” and feel like it makes him x1000 cuter (?))

You two talk a lot, huh?

Yuri’s always been the one to doubt if Victor will stay with him after the Prix and worry about how Victor feels about him, but it seems Victor’s been worrying about that too:

It’s like he’s doesn’t know what to do if he’s “just a coach” to Yuri. And he’s referring to him and Yuri as coach and student, like he’s afraid to cross the line in case Yuri doesn’t feel the same way he does, and thinking about what’s going to happen after the Prix, like he’s afraid it’s going to be “just a fling” as the other skaters have said.

But then it’s YURI who throws it out there and clears all his doubts, asks for them to be together

And Victor’s just standing there still and speechless

that Yuri feels the same way, that it’s not just a fling, no it’s EVERYTHING

and he’s so relieved and so happy that Yuri loves him SO MUCH

It’s still Christmas in my timezone, so I’m not late!

Aaaand I accidentally made this another group picture of all the MCQ skellies, WHOOPS. It was originally going to be just the three bros, but then I felt Deccy and Fresh cuddles were necessary, and the others wormed their way in. They were also meant to be chibis, but they ended up just being smol? So, this ended up taking longer than I planned, hence the almost/kind of lateness.

I designed the sweaters for Geno, Error and Ink. I have mixed feelings about the results, but I don’t wanna mess around with them anymore.

I have more ideas for Christmas pictures, so I might draw and post them late!

I hope everyone has/had a very merry Christmas, or whichever holiday you celebrate, or just a great day in general!

After being inspired by @aufcat and their BEAUTIFUL coldflash embroidery (like seriously I stare at it a lot), I sucked it up and decided to try embroidery out. I give you, my first embroidery project that turned out wonderfully well and I’m still trying to figure out what to put it on, if anything.

Thinking about doing another logo now… this was too much fun. Also sorry for pencil marks. I’m still learning how to do this.

I absolutely love everything that you've been posting, and bridging the urban-rural divide to help change the ideologies of rural culture is literally what I'm planning my career around trying to do. My focus is very America-centric, but if you're interested, I can definitely recommend some reading material for you! xx

It’s something I have been thinking about for a long time, in explicit terms since our election in July where my home state elected a stain on Australian politics that just won’t quit: first elected in the mid-90s, then it was racist commentary on Indigenous and Asian Australians, then we exiled her from politics but she’s made a comeback, now it’s Islamophobia. But it’s always been something in the back of my mind, the insular nature of the liberal elite.

I’m from a small regional city, I know “those people.” They’re my extended family and people I grew up with. They make lots of spelling mistakes and questionable comments about minorities on my Facebook feed. But the thing is, they’re not write offs or somehow fundamentally different from “us”. They’re actually regular people like you, like me, who happen to live somewhere else and have a different exposure to political issues. Their local economies work differently and the things that concern them are less relevant to people who live in cities. For years they’ve been listening to the only people bothering to speak to them: the right wing media. And so their culture and their world view is different. It’s easier to recognise someone else’s bubble and liberals are so god damn smug about it, but we live in one too. 

Gleefully actually, until we lose an election and then we all come out crowing about racism and sexism and bigotry. 

All this is to say: that sounds super interesting and yes, do share! I think it’s interesting to compare these things between countries, to see what we can learn from each other. (Again, it’s easier to observe than to exist within the system.) Because it seems to be happening all over the world, but the peculiarities of each country or culture emphasise different aspects of the issue.

David Wong on Cracked has been writing a lot of good stuff: How Half Of America Lost Its F**king Mind is actually far more incisive and less facetious than the title suggests. Also this

If you focus on the racism and ignore the economic anxiety, you’re intentionally blinding yourself to much of the problem. It doesn’t matter how much you hate them; their concerns must be heard and addressed or else this will happen again. Or, as someone on Twitter put it, “I’m begging liberal Democrats to discover a tactic other than wealthy celebrities mugging in a camera about how dumb the GOP is.”

The follow up to the quoted tweet:

I don’t know if it’s just that people from cities don’t know what it’s like to drive through those depressed near-ghost towns? But there are lots and lots of parts of this country (and I’m guessing America too) that are a post office and a pub. One street and one dwindling industry, with double figure youth unemployment and nothing that looks like change coming anytime soon. Of course racism and bigotry and “the good old days” rhetoric takes hold in these areas. It’s hard for urbanites to see because it’s so obvious that so many things are better now. But for certain groups in certain areas, they were good old days. You can’t talk about progress without acknowledging that or it doesn’t mean anything to a great big chunk of the voting population. You’re just not speaking their language.

And yet the liberal response to this is “you just can’t talk to some people” and like, yeah!!! You nailed it buddy. We are not talking to “some people”, “those people”, and they’re not effing voting with us. How thoroughly unsurprising. 

(I hope you don’t mind that I published this! I thought other people could jump in if they are also interested.)

but he is so cree–

but he is so much ol–

but i flooded the tags with hate, took a shit on gif sets and other artwork in form of useless/condescending/ignorant replies, and obnoxiously hounded the makers via anon messages

so why do you still ship it when i clearly don’t like it?!?

ok then i whine about how uncomfortable it makes me and reblog your edits so i can have this thing that makes me so uncomfortable on my own blog too

I haven’t posted much art recently so here’s my DnD character, Deina Ilyndrathyl, to make up for the art drought on my blog :) She’s a half elf ranger with weirdly creative ways of getting herself out of trouble. She also has a bear named Frederick but I’ll probably post her when I complete the character art for our party. *if I ever find the time too…*

  • me: *watched ninjago when there were only two seasons and hasn't since*
  • movie: *comes out*
  • me: maybe I should rewatch it! *does so*
  • me, having rewatched the first five episodes: I wonder if anyone on Tumblr has drawn more realistic interpretations of the characters *goes into the tag*
  • tag: *characters I dont recognize* *weird ship names* *spoilers I dont understand* *references I dont get*
  • me: what the fuck

After the Eternal Bonding of Oyuu and J’takra ( @oyuudatass & @sunbeasts ), Arshtat decided to go back with Madoc to his apartment to train in combat for an indefinite time. She also may have had a bit too much to drink at the reception for the first time in like… ever. And was half asleep on her feet on the walk back.

Someone is a gentleman. Even gave her his coat.

Apparently all I’m good for is trash, half colored doodles like this.

I took a break from working on paintings for others and doodled my MGS faves for the first time, yo!
