i guess i'm doing all of them then

I really like drawing fanart of characters who could be considered conventionally attractive and then just. Adding a bunch of shit. Acne, body hair, a bit of chub, a LOT of chub, stretch marks, tons of freckles of course, eye bags, crooked smiles, anything that anyone could feel self-conscious about. I really really like adding those things to their favourite characters.

I guess it just kind of proves that people will still cherish you even with all those things you might not think look nice. And I think that’s super cool

you: 2016 sucks

me, an intellectual: The Year of 2016,

it is,

in fact,

A Good Year

happy

I realized that people are not problems to solve or riddle to guess, they are just people and all you can do is love them.

Someone online was translating lots of Osomatsu-san fanart for people and I asked if I could draw them something back since they’d been doing all of this for free. They asked for a bee Karamatsu and, well, that’s my specialty these days, isn’t it?

“C’EST LA BEE!”

I don’t understand where this fandom mentality comes from that everyone has to like all the characters within a book/series/movie? And people start fighting you if you don’t like one character to the same extent as they do?

Like, be happy that people enjoy their favourite character (or ship). That they are so inspired by them that they write fanfic, draw fanart or develop headcanons for them. They share their love and you can do the same with your favourite characters - that’s the point of fandom.

But attacking other fans because they don’t include every single character for reasons that they are entirely their own? It doesn’t matter if you agree or not. Everyone has preferences and they are allowed to have them.

Seriously, since “Winter” was released, this fandom has become a minefield.
And I don’t mean that the character of Winter changed it, but it’s the tone of the discussions. It’s not so much about respectful, informative discussions anymore. It’s gotten nasty with a few people insulting and bullying other fans for their preferences with a self-righteousness that is seriously uncalled for.

Because now, if you don’t include a certain character, you are called out for whatever inane reason. I once got the question once why I didn’t include a certain ship for a story idea I had. Why is that any of their concern? It’s my story idea, either you like it or not but I’m not playing character bingo and include everyone just because the fandom thinks I have to because they are in the original story. That’s what fanfic is for, to expand on the characters you love, maybe all of them or just one of them, but that isn’t anyone’s business. If I see a story tagged with Character X, I’m not asking the author, “hey, where’s Character Y?” That story isn’t for me, so I move on to stories that are.

Because here’s the thing: No one owes you anything.

No one has to write a fic you enjoy.

No one has to draw a fanart that you can reblog.

No one has to spend their time of the day on characters they don’t like just because they feel pressured to do so.

But: Everyone deserves respect. Or, at least, just because someone has a different opinion, it doesn’t give you the right to insult them. Opinions are not facts.

You don’t have to agree with someone but it’s not too much to ask to treat them with a minimum of respect. Especially over something as personal and random as favourite characters/ships.

For next year, I do hope we leave this kind of mentality behind us, so people can resume creating content they enjoy for people who appreciate it, without being attacked for not doing it as some people might see fit. I’m not naive, I know there will always be drama and shipper wars or whatever. But this year, it was no fun being in the TLC fandom. And I say this especially in regard to the TLC shipweeks.

The creators of shipweeks are putting a lot of effort into it. The fans are putting a lot of effort into their work, too. So, if you are not happy that your character/ship/brotp isn’t as included as much as you would like, create your own content. Spread the love. But respect other people’s choices.

And for every other fan: Just have lots of fun with TLC, with your favourite characters and ships and don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t allowed to.

“doesn’t pewdiepie always like put his hair back in like his hat, you know, like all the boy singers do … like this or some shit i don’t fucking know”

I’m honestly thinking about writing a letter to Vincent Waller (and I guess all the crew for spongebob) thanking them for keeping this show going and making me laugh throughout the years. I have been through some serious shit but this show always made me forget about it for a little while, even now when I’m going through this hard time. I don’t wanna sound like I’m ass kissing cause I’m not. I’ve been wanting to do this for years but was worried no one from the crew would be able to read it. I just want them to know that they changed my life forever and I can’t thank them enough for it.

855. When one student bullied another student, the bully would find themselves more prone to accidents involving dodgy staircases or floorboards, particularly in front of large crowds, because the castle doesn't put up with bullying.

Sickeningly sweet HC’s for everyone

Since I already wrote something about Valentine’s Day chocolate before, yet still kind of want to do something today since everyone seems to be fired up … I’m quickly writing down my cutest and cheesiest random little head canons about each of the MysMe characters (all of them, so kind of spoilers). Happy Valentine’s Day to me!

(ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧

Yoosung

  • Sometimes you ask him to open things or grab things from a higher shelf for you, even if you don’t actually need him. His reaction to this is just too cute. He not so secretly loves these kind of stereotypical couple dynamics and gets adorably excited.
  • When you are apart you text pretty much non-stop. Even if you both try not to get distracted you always end up looking at your phone and replying. Sometimes, even after a long time of being a couple, you still stay up all night talking to each other and making each other smile like an idiot.
  • Yoosung talks a lot about you. It’s not on purpose, he just can’t help it. Even people who have barely or never met you, already know that you are presumably the loveliest and most amazing person ever.

Zen

  • Zen always practices any and all romantic lines from every role he takes on with you. He always acts it out with passion and sincerity, no matter how cheesy and ridiculous they get, and insists that all of it still pales in comparison to his love for you. He can and will do this for hours on end.
  • So much physical affection, too. No morning without a good morning kiss. No sleeping without a good night kiss, probably not a lot of sleeping at all without some body part of you touching. Random touches and hugs and kisses everywhere.
  • Of course, your phones are full of couple selfies. Either one kissing the other or doing those heart hands. Zen loves the heart hands. You do it everywhere.

Jaehee

  • Even before you get together, Jaehee keeps a framed picture of you on her desk to remind her of how lucky she is to have met you. She also has one of the both of you on her bedside table.
  • One of your favorite things is to lay in bed beside each other, in the darkness and just barely touching each other, and just talk about anything and everything. You both have so many things and feelings to share, and Jaehee never had this sort of relationship before. She enjoys this bond and the trust between you two so much.
  • The very first latte art Jaehee presents to you has the shape of a heart. She insists that you drink this cup of coffee, because she was thinking of you while making it.

Jumin

  • You can turn Jumin into instant mush by doing the littlest sweet things for him. He expects nothing from you except for just being there, so every small gesture still means the world to him. Just hide a cute note between the documents on his desk and wait for his reaction.
  • He is the cutest when you are just relaxing at home, snuggled up to him, staring out of that huge window together. He will happily hold and cuddle you the whole evening, giving you the softest kisses on the head and telling you again and again just how precious you are to him.
  • Jumin’s phone is actually full of pictures of you, and of the two of you together. He stares at them a lot when he can’t physically be with you.

Saeyoung

  • He didn’t lie. He did not have a recording of your voice at that point. But he has now. Several. He listens to them whenever you’re not there and he’s missing you.
  • The two of you sometimes play up the sickeningly sweethearts routine for fun, in real life and in the chat room. Complete with spoiling and pampering each other, giving cringey pet names and fighting about “no you are cuter”. It is joking around of course, but deep inside you both know you’re actually kind of serious.
  • Joking or not, whenever he is with you, Saeyoung really tends to touch you a lot. Takes your hand, or plays with your hair, or puts an arm around you when you’re close enough. He sometimes doesn’t even seem to realize it. He just likes to be close to you and feel that you’re there with him.

Saeran

  • Saeran secretly enjoys doing “typical couple things”. Holding hands or linking arms in the streets? Carrying your stuff? Having to give you a bite from his food? No problem. Because this kind of behaviors and routines not only feel like kind of a validation … but also like he’s finally doing something right, and normal.
  • You are the one person who is always allowed to come near him. Talk to him, touch him, even hug and kiss him. He probably won’t say it, but he likes getting attention and affection a lot – if it’s from you that is.
  • Saeran has a really bright and beautiful smile he almost exclusively shows to you, when the two of you are alone and relaxed. You have a selfie on your phone where he is smiling beside you; the two of you look so cute and happy that Saeyoung actually cried a bit when you showed it to him.

V

  • He likes to make small gifts from time to time, often photographs or single flowers. Sometimes he sends them to your workplace so they will brighten up your day. He doesn’t want anything in return and tries his best to make that clear. He just wants you to smile and be happy.
  • You have a favorite place you discovered together. A small but elegant café/bar, located in the top floor of a multistorey building. You go there for a date with candlelight and view over the city almost every Friday evening.
  • Sometimes, seemingly without reason, V will just turn to you, take your hands, and tell you sweet things. That you’re wonderful and perfect and that he’s incredibly happy and grateful to have met you. He is so sincere about it that you usually don’t question it. If you do, he just smiles and says that he wanted to make sure you knew this.

Vanderwood

  • Vanderwood actually appreciates you and the relationship you have so much. He might deflect from that “feels-y” stuff with snark and pragmatism to hide the awkwardness, but he’ll just go over to you and hug you in the same breath. Sometimes physical affection is easier to give than honest, heartfelt words.
  • He’s attentive enough to always know when you need something. And as long as it doesn’t involve him having to spout sweet talk (or risking his life again), he’s also quite willing to do it. Sometimes he fetches you a glass of water before you even realize that you’re thirsty.
  • You do have these rare, quiet moments. From time to time, and each time surprising you quite a lot, Vanderwood drops the sarcasm and talks to you very sincerely for a few minutes. Then, he’ll explain his usual behavior to you, apologizing if he’s ever hurt you, and assuring you that yes, he does love you. A lot.
GUYS OMG GUESS WHAT

THE TEACHER I’M WORKING WITH SAW MY PROPOSAL FOR WHAT I WANTED TO LECTURE ON IN HIS CLASS

We’re only supposed to get one forty-five minute block. But he said “You really seem to know what you’re talking about!” AND GAVE ME THREE!

I feel so AMAZINGLY COOL RIGHT NOW!

LOOK AT ME!

BEING ALL HISTORY TEACHER LIKE AND STUFFS!

My plan? To teach them through an outlet that they’re familiar with so they don’t even notice what they’re learning until it’s too late. Nothing better than sneaking America’s need for conformity and history of racial prejudice and profiling through the art of the children’s book!

The cycle
  • Me: hm I have a lot of assignments due next Tuesday I guess I'll work on them over the weekend
  • Me, over the weekend: ..............
  • Me, Sunday night: I hate myself lmao
  • Me, Monday: *doing all the assignments, begging for death*

Hhhhhh
Remember how I said I was a mess last night?

Well someone gave me money for my bird.
