i just had to include them

I saw a couple Twitter posts today about The Incredibles 2, and there’s something I feel I have to say:

DO NOT BE MEAN TO LITTLE KIDS WHO ARE GOING TO SEE THE INCREDIBLES 2

I’m serious. Don’t push them out of the way to get your ticket, don’t be rude to kids because you think they’re being loud and/or annoying–they’re little kids. 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m super excited to see The Incredibles 2, and I fully intend to see it when it comes out, but you are NOT entitled to this movie just because you had the privilege of being alive to see the original movie when it came out in theaters. The entire reason people, including little kids, watch movies is to have fun, and escape from the real world for a couple hours. 

So by all means, go watch The Incredibles 2 and relive your childhood, but please allow actual children a chance to enjoy it as well.

It’s only one night, we’ll just share the bed.


Izuku groaned feeling his joints pop back into place. They had been sitting in debriefing for over an hour, and judging by the expression on Katsuki’s face, they were both tired and completely done for the day. Izuku was never one to complain about hero work, but being sent off to a remote location at the last minute did put a damper on his usual pattern. They were nowhere near the city, and it was too late to take the train back home. They were going to have to spend the night in the area.

“This sucks,” Katsuki grunted, shoving the front door of the small police office open with his foot.

“They were at least nice enough to give us somewhere to stay, Kacchan,” Izuku grumbled, trying to stay positive. It was hard when he was equally annoyed.

“Nice my ass, they kept us way too long in that meeting. We didn’t need to be there,” Katsuki continued to complain. Izuku had a feeling that Katsuki just needed to get the frustration out, and that he didn’t want to really argue with Izuku.

“I know, Kacchan.” Izuku agreed, wanting the annoyance to leave Katsuki as soon as possible. He’d been easier to manage if not annoyed since Izuku was so tired. “Let’s just get to the room and sleep.”

“Whatever, Deku,” Katsuki grumbled, the two walking the short distance to the small inn. Katsuki opened the door, nodding for Izuku to enter first. Izuku smiled weakly at the elderly woman at the front desk.

“Hello there,” Izuku greeted, ignoring the way Katsuki slammed the door shut. “Um … there was a call from the police station for a room for us?”

“Oh! Yes, yes, here we go.” The elder said, quickly pulling a set of keys off of the hooks behind her. “Thank you so much for all of your help today, we appreciate such fine young men looking out for us.” Izuku rubbed the back of his head taking the keys.

“No problem, ma’am,” Izuku struggled a bit, still finding it a bit embarrassing when people thanked him.

“Have a good night, boys,” she said in a singsong voice, motioning to the staircase next to the desk. Katsuki grabbed the key from Izuku and stomped his way up the old steps.

“Kacchan! People are trying to sleep,” Izuku scolded. The glare Katsuki shot back at him shut him up though. Great, now Katsuki was annoyed again.

“We should be on the train back home. Can’t believe I have to share a room with you. This sucks,” Katsuki continued to grumble, eyes lazily scanning the door numbers until he found the one that matched the key in his hand.

“We’ll both be asleep, Kacchan. Just think of it like back when we were in school,” Izuku tried again, almost running into Katsuki when he’d stopped dead in his tracks after turning on the small light. “What-“

Both of them just stared. The room was small, probably due to the last-minute reservation. It wasn’t the worst room that Izuku had ever had to stay in during his away missions, but there was one problem.

There was only one very small bed.

“For fuck sake,” Katsuki growled, running a hand tiredly over his face.

“It’s … I’m sure it was just a mistake. I’ll just … go and speak with the nice woman at the desk. I’m sure there’s another room available that I can-“

“Stop, Deku,” Katsuki’s shoulders slumped, his gaze surprisingly soft. “They wouldn’t have put us in here if anything else was free, and this was the only key on the wall behind her.” Katsuki was oddly enough being very level headed about this. “I’m too fucking tired for this,” Katsuki tossed his bag in a corner and pulled off the jacket he was wearing.

Izuku tried not to stare.

“It’s only one night, we’ll just share the bed.” Katsuki turned back to look at Izuku, the slight challenge in his eyes not going unnoticed by Izuku.

“If you’re sure,” Izuku hesitated for a moment, before shutting the door behind him and tossing his own bag in the opposite corner.

“I wouldn’t have said it if I wasn’t sure, shit nerd,” the usual bite to Katsuki’s voice was lacking however. He really was tired. To two changed without much fuss, Izuku being sure to keep his eyes focused on the wall and not turn around to stare at Katsuki’s model like as-

Focus, Izuku!

Pulling his sleep shirt over his head, Izuku ran his hand through his hair a few times before finally turning around. Katsuki sat on the opposite side of the bed from him, just glaring out the window.

“Kacchan?” Izuku asked, not sure what to make of Katsuki’s expression.

“You take forever, c’mon I’m tired,” Katsuki complained. He stood and shoved the comforter and bed sheet down to the foot of the bed and sat again, Izuku mimicking his movements. The two were forced to lay with their backs touching, unable to avoid the contact due to the size of the bed. Izuku felt his face flush when Katsuki pulled the covers over them, adjusting for a moment before the two of them were laying completely still.

Izuku held his breath, trying to get comfortable with Katsuki so close to him. He could feel each time Katsuki took a breath, his body heat, everything. Izuku wasn’t able to calm down, there was no way he was going to be able to sleep.

This was going to be a long night.

psst how does netgalley work

ok so u make an account

u put in things like ur email and what genres u like, whether ur a librarian/bookseller or just a regular reviewer. also u can say where u post reviews, how many followers u have on those sites if u want to include that (i looked at some blogger’s guide for how to make a good profile and followed that i don’t actually know what’s good)

then it shows u the books available in each genre and u can click “request” on them (or sometimes “wish for it” if it’s available but not REALLY available? idk sometimes it’s like that)

the only part i had trouble navigating was giving it the info for where to send the ebooks u’re approved for, and it has some step by step guides to explain how to do it so honestly this site gets me

and then u wait and they send u an email saying whether u were approved sometime later. could be a day or they could leave u on read for months #rude

idk the extent to which approval depends on how big ur audience for reviews is bc i only have my experience and also the million blog posts i read about it, but it’s definitely harder to be approved for rly anticipated books and easier to be approved for books from small publishers

also once u’ve read the book u get to turn in ur review on the site

Ok so I know this was a long post. I developed this Mobian genetics theory a good while back ago and had been planning to explain my head cannon for quite sometime but only now got around to taking the day out to throughout write out my explanation (diagrams included) Now I know that when dealing with real genetics this isn’t how you would properly write all out but I thought a never ending string of letters and numbers would be harder to keep track of, I fine using colors and symbols makes it more clear for me and for you guys. None of these traits are using their real scientific labels I just gave them my own labels and symbols so I could use things I would remember easier. This is all still simplified in some places as genetics are really complicated but this is more or less the system I know operate on when designing sonic characters. Next time I will expand on this by ironing out the theoretical genetic profiles of Sonic and Sally’s family in the Archie comics. Partly because it gives me a chance to do with with a completed 3 generational family tree, but mostly so I can make a point about how lazy and in reality extremely unlikely it is for the family to look the way they do. While it’s likely that Sally’s parents would produce a daughter that looks like her it’s only really because her parents are so identical I’m not sure their kids could look like anything else and it makes me suspect the acorns of inbreeding because I’m otherwise not sure how her parents could look so similar. Sonic’s parents are painfully similar two but at least they’re slightly different. Moreover though I don’t actually think it’s possible (or if it is it’s extremely unlikely) for Sonic and Sally’s kids to just look like clones of their parents. Generation xerox is an annoying mistake for ammature writers/ character designers to make, you should never make the parents or kids of a character look like a clone of them and I hope to make the case as to why. If you would like to use my head cannon theory when designing your own characters go right ahead, and if you want to sent me some characters of your own and have me show you the different possible color outcomes I can do that for a few people to provide more examples of this system in action.

Celebrimbor/Sauron for the ship meme?

aaaaaagh, yes of course let’s start with these two 

when or if I started shipping it: It’s been about a year and a half at this point, maybe two?
my thoughts: ASDFGHJKL. But also, their relationship is really, really disconcertingly easy to map a lot of things onto, whether those things stem from Tolkien’s canon or from our own experience/questions/expectations beyond canon. (or maybe that’s just me, I don’t know)
What makes me happy about them: EVERYTHING except the end, and sometimes even the end too because clearly I am somewhat of a perverse fan
What makes me sad about them: EVERYTHING including the end, and the fact that they ostensibly had so much in common
things done in art/fic that annoys me: Annatar being characterized as The Big Bad with no examination of why he would turn on Celebrimbor. Celebrimbor being characterized in any totalizing way - completely weak, unaware, etc. - and especially even after things have already started to go wrong.  
things I look for in art/fic: tbh? with this ship I am always up for reading others’ headcanons or interpretations, even if later on I decide that I don’t agree with them (see above). This ship always needs more fanworks…  
• Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: Annatar with Melkor, as Angbang; Celebrimbor with Narvi or someone in Gondolin earlier, sometimes even Maeglin (Fallen Banners)
My happily ever after for them: In my own headcanon? They don’t get one. (I know, I know - I’m SORRY :,( But otherwise? I would be remiss not to point you toward arrogantemu’s “To Morning Through The Shadow”  
what is their favorite non-sexual activity?: debate. on anything.

Coming Soon….

Testing is about completed. 7 patterns were axed after testing. They work fine, but either I threw them out for not being seamless or they had some other issue. Now I just need to create the image preview and the post.

One non-seamless pattern included is the musical one above. The seam isn’t too bad, and I liked the aesthetic, so I kept it anyways.

That middle photo… the screenshot doesn’t at all do justice to this pattern. It is fantastic. I’ll post just the pattern icon below so you can admire it. It’s mildly re-colorable, but the highlights don’t recolor, so you can get a nice brown out of it, but other colors not so much.

The last one… that patchwork pattern on the bed gave me a hard time. Not in converting… but on a wall it looks like a tile pattern, but it’s meant to be a patchwork. I finally decided that while it works as either, there’s a lot more tile patterns than patchwork patterns, so I left it in Geometric with the other patchwork patterns.

The real Taylor Swift:

April 23rd 2009-July 10th 2010: The Fearless Tour

The Fearless Tour. Taylor decided to walk through the crowds at her shows, greeting fans of all ages, genders and races because SHE wanted to meet the fans that had been supporting her and helping her reach where she is to this day. After each show, Taylor held a meet and greet called ‘The T-Party’. This was a room where fans could go to eat pizza and meet each other and get to know other people and then get to meet Taylor. Taylor would walk around stadiums and hide behind food bars and then surprise fans in the line. Each night she would walk a number of miles to meet as many people as she could.

February 9th 2011-March 18th 2012: The Speak Now Tour

Much like at the Fearless Tour, Taylor said she wanted to continue walking through the crowds during one of her songs at the Speak Now Tour. Taylor hugged as many people as she could and thanked them for coming. Sometimes Taylor would tell her security to move out of the way and to let her hug more people. Taylor continued her ‘T-Party’ meet and greet. Taylor’s team would walk to different areas of the stadium during the show and hand out free meet and greets to fans who had gone all-out; screaming and dancing the whole time and wearing bold and creative costumes/handmade posters.

September 8th 2012: Ronan

The lyrics to this song are based on a blog she read about a four-year-old boy, Ronan Thompson, who died from neuroblastoma in 2011.Taylor wrote the song by putting together quotes from blog creator Maya Thompson, Ronan’s mother. Thompson is credited as a co-writer of the song. Taylor first performed the song live for Stand Up to Cancer in September 2012, and has only performed it publicly one other time, at the Glendale, Arizona stop of The 1989 World Tour, at which Ronan’s mother was in the audience. All proceeds from sales of the single go to help fight cancer.

2014: 1989 Secret Sessions

In anticipation of the release of her album, 1989 on October 27, Taylor held a series of “1989 Secret Sessions” over the past few weeks at her various homes across America, where carefully-selected fans were told they were attending some sort of secret event, with no knowledge of what was in store for them. When fans arrived they were told to sit in a room together and wait. Taylor then jumped out and surprised them all and they all got to hear her new album before anyone else. Taylor baked cookies and other goods, fans got to meet Taylor’s cat, Olivia Benson Swift, and they danced together and each got to meet Taylor and just hang out.

May 5th 2015-December 12th 2015: The 1989 Tour

At each 1989 concert, before perfoming her song ‘clean’, Taylor gave a 3-4 minute inspirational speech, telling fans to love themselves. This is what Taylor said to the crowd of 60,000 at Hyde Park, London on June 272015: ‘There are people here from all over the world, so if you travelled to be here, thank you so much for coming. And, you know, looking out at you, thinking about the fact that we all come from different places, maybe we all have different accents, we have different hobbies, different backgrounds, whatever. But there’s one thing that we have in common that I know for sure. That thing is that when we feel a great amount of joy, or a great amount of pain, we turn to music. That’s why we’re all at Hyde Park tonight. From talking to you so much, and getting to know you, it’s never been more apparent to me how difficult it is to feel okay about yourself in 2015. Real talk. I mean, every single day we go online – and trust me, I love the internet, okay? Love it – but, every day we go online and we scroll through the highlight reel of other people’s awesome lives. But we don’t see the highlight reel of our awesome lives – all we see is the behind the scenes. We see every single moment, from when we wake up and we’re like “oh, God, not feeling my hair today. Not going to be a good day today for the hair”. We see our doubts, we see our fears, we see our concerns. You are the only one who is inside your brain feeling all of your anxieties and the voices who are telling you that you can’t be who you want to be, or that you’re not who you want to be, or that you want to be more like that other person over there. Let me tell you, people are mean to each other, but no voice is as mean as our own voices are to ourselves. Is it true or is it false? It’s true, right? Okay, so if there’s one thing that you come away from this night remembering, I want it to be this – every day when you look in the mirror, and your mind is telling you all the things you are not – if those things are that you’re not cool enough, you’re not pretty enough, you’re not popular enough, you’re not successful enough, you’re not special, you’re not wanted, you’re not unique – those are not the things you are not. Let me tell you the things you are not. Okay? You are not somebody else’s opinion. That’s what you’re not. You are not going nowhere just because you’re not where you want to be yet. You are not damaged goods just because you have made mistakes in your life. Those are the things you are not. Let me tell you the things that you are. Would you like to hear the things that you are? You are your own definition of beautiful, and worthwhile, and no one else’s definition. You are wiser, stronger, and smarter because you made mistakes in your life, not damaged. And lastly, London, England, you are someone who is probably standing here tonight going through your own battles, fighting your own ghosts, trying to cover your own scars, stressing about your own stresses. But, rather than wallowing in them, you got up, you put on an awesome outfit, and now we’re all standing here together having the best time of our lives at a concert on a Saturday night. I realise that it’s not about being perfect, it’s not about feeling perfect. I think that sometimes it’s just about getting on with things and realising that you’re happy today. That’s all that matters. I just want you to know that one thing I have learned in 25 years, and I’m still learning, is that if you get rained on, you walk through a bunch of storms, life is constantly coming at you – that doesn’t make you damaged. It makes you clean.’


May 5th 2015-December 12th 2015: The 1989 Tour (Loft 89)

At Taylor’s 1989 concerts, she held a meet and greet called ‘Loft 89′ where Taylor, again, could hang out with her fans and dance around with them. Taylor met lots of different people including children with disabilities and illnesses. Taylor made sure everyone had a great time and that everyone was included and treated equally.

Christmas 2014/2015: ‘Swiftmas’

Taylor Swift surprised 13-year-old fan Delaney Clements who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at the age of seven. Delaney, who is a massive fan of the 26-year-old singer started a campaign to meet Taylor called #TaylorMeetDelaney and on Saturday (19th December) her wish came true. Taylor surprised the family by turning up unannounced and the afternoon was captured on Instagram and Facebook with Delaney and her Mum posting photos. Taylor became so into the idea of ‘Swiftmas’ that she also sent a number of other fans packages of merch and other little presents.

Award acceptance speeches

To any award acceptance speech, there is always something directed to Taylor’s fans. Taylor thanks her fans for everything because she knows that we are such a big part of her life and she wouldnt be where she is now without us.

A very important quote Taylor has said:

Long story short: Taylor is one of those few artists who does nothing but good for her fans and everyone around her yet she gets body shamed and name called everywhere. It really does break my heart. 

Taylor has been there for me through everything and I know that she always will be because she has never failed to make us all smile and to make us all feel better about ourselves, She has made me feel loved and wanted and she has introduced me to some of my bestest friends ever. To me, Taylor Swift is not just an artist, she’s my best friend.

@taylorswift

So, what started out as the idea for one drawing to get myself to work in my sketchbook and stay positive over the summer turned into a series of four Sanders Sides themed motivational posters because that’s who I am as a person…

Motivational Roman, India ink and colored pencil.

Drawing includes the phrase “You Will make your Dreams a Reality” in cursive lettering framed by a satin ribbon reminiscent of Roman’s princely sash. He’s a dreamer, but he’s also a go-getter so he seemed like the appropriate choice to start off the series.

Motivational Logan, Micron pen and colored pencil.

Drawing includes the phrase “EVEN A SMALL IMPROVEMENT IS STILL PROGRESS” in a no-nonsense, architectural drafting style font framed by a silky blue tie. Logan is the man with a plan and would understand that every little step toward a goal should be recognized.

Motivational Patton, Micron pen and colored pencil.

Drawing includes the phrase “dO whAt mAkEs yOUr InnEr chIld HaPPy” in a simple font that bounces between upper and lowercase letters (this is how I wrote as a kid) framed by Patton’s gray cardigan like a warm hug. He’s a lovable, wrinkly sorta guy who just wants what’s best for you.

Motivational Virgil, Micron pen and colored pencil.

Drawing includes the phrase “You have Fought your DEMONS, you can handle ANYTHING” in a wispy, sharp, Gothic style font (that was probably the most fun to make out of them all) framed by Virgil’s hoodie. He’s a bit of a self-deprecating edge-lord, so I don’t doubt that he’d say something like this in an attempt to be motivational, however, this is more based on how I personally view my anxiety.

I had a lot of fun with this, I hope you all enjoy and are motivated as well! Thanks to @thatsthat24​ for being my muse and @welcome-to-the-joangle​ for helping to create such wonderful characters!

Writing on bad days is mysterious.

Because nothing is good on a bad day and that includes your writing, it’s just pulling words out with forceps and placing them on a page and there’s no magic or art in it at all.

BUT THEN you read through it the next day, a better day, and it’s perfectly fine.  Maybe it’s even, dare I say… good??  And no reader will ever know that you had zero inspiration in you that day, or that you pulled this section out of your ass with a sorta crazed hopelessness.  To them it’ll just look like another part of the story they like.

What the hell.

I guess the lesson here is to just keep writing haha  Just keep showing up. Your body knows the routine better than you think.

one video that i just don’t see people talk about enough is phil’s draw my life video. i really feel like it deserves a more in depth discussion.

there are so many things about this video that make me think a lot about phil as a person and his past. 

an obvious one is him talking about losing one of his best friends in the last year of uni. idk i guess because phil is such a private person it hits me that much more to hear him talk about it?

just from watching this entire video ( hearing him talk about his childhood and his relationship with his brother and his memories from his grandpa and his group of friends) and just from the knowledge we have about him in general it’s obvious how important the people he loves are to him, and how serious he takes the relationships in his life. and i feel like it was no different with this one.

and just to think about him dealing with this grief (him saying that his last year at uni was a blur and that it took a long time for it to get better), and then deciding that he has to do something with his life, that his friend wouldn’t want him to be sad and that he doesn’t want to be sad and deciding to do all those things that are out of his comfort zone (like auditioning for a movie and going on the weakest link and investing more in his youtube channel) just make me think a lot. 

because he told us more than once how shy he was and how hard it was for him to do things that scared him (like saying on a few occasions that he regrets not going to parties and meeting people when he was younger because he was afraid people wouldn’t like him or that he wouldn’t have a good time) and to think about him pushing himself to do more and be better and be happy because he deserved it just makes me so damn proud of him. to take this grief and channel it into trying harder is not a given, and it’s just another thing i really respect about him.

and there are so many other things about this video that just make me appreciate it so much . like his sincere voice that we don’t always get to hear and him talking like this about himself and about how much he appreciates his life and his audience and the opportunities he got and hearing what parts of his life he decided to talk about in this video because even if some of them seem secondary to others he obviously feels they are important enough to be included and idk i’m rambling haha

(obviously this is just my interpretation of this video and other interactions we had with him, i don’t actually know what he went through, those are just my thoughts. you are more than welcome to tell me yours :) )

anonymous asked:

you „stan“ a manipulative, white supremacist, barely talented, unbelievably rich cow with terrible hair and godawful dance moves. there are so many other great artists, that make music with actual value and finesse, maybe consider „stanning“ someone like that for a change instead of some odd persona a record label is spoonfeeding you : )

*clears throat*

Dear anon, before starting throwing shade at us and Taylor herself, I think that you should check your sources and “facts” first, sit down and read this.

If this person is, I quote, “manipulative” and “a white supremacist”, then I would very much like to take a look at your sources and proof so that we can discuss about it although I have a feeling that most of your “proof” comes from teen magazines or from unreliable sources. I don’t know if you have looked up the definition of white supremacy before, but I will give it to you now: “White supremacy is a racist ideology based upon the belief that white people are superior in many ways to people of other races and that therefore white people should be dominant over other races.” Now, I don’t know how you can qualify Taylor as a white supremacist when she has many friends such as Uzo Aduba (with whom she performed at the 1989 World Tour) and Todrick Hall (who is also starring in her Look What You Made Me Do music video). Moving on, you may call her what you want and you may use terms such as “manipulative” or “unbelievably rich”, but here are some facts about her that you might have skipped:

• she might be rich, but she doesn’t keep the money to herself. In 2015, during Christmas, or as we like to call it, Swiftmas, she sent packages full of gifts to fans around the world. One of these fans was missing a certain amount of money for college, and since Taylor was aware of that, she sent her $1,989 including a lot of other gifts (I used this as a source because I couldn’t find the Tumblr post but y’all can help me later when I post this) (x)

• she has donated an endless amount of money to fans with illnesses, to organizations, visited them at hospitals, and even wrote an eponymous song called “Ronan” for a 4-year old that passed away because of cancer (just google the name of the song and “taylor swift hospital” and you’ll see)

• she gave a certain amount of money and dropped at a hotel a fan who had missed her bus after her concert

• she invites fans TO HER HOME and tells us secrets, bakes for us, stalks us on social media, knows more things about us than ourselves, and is genuinely happy to see us, AND SHE GIVES US THE BIGGEST AND BEST HUG OF OUR LIVES AND SHE DOESN’T LET YOU GO UNTIL YOU LET GO and the conversation between you two flows perfectly because it feels like you’re talking to your long-lost sister and you have so much to talk about (and I and other secret sessioners are the source for this and if you have any questions or you’re don’t believe us you are free to ask politely)

• if you take a look closer, all Taylor never even once ever started the drama. Don’t you think that it’s odd that people keep throwing shade at her for no valid reason when they could actually throw shade at Donald Trump because all he can say is “tremendous”?

• she knows so many things about us it’s insane. She likes our posts daily and interacts with us, even with some emojis, because she knows that it could make a person’s day, week, month, year, or maybe even your entire life. At award shows or any other public event, she doesn’t miss on the opportunity and surprises fans. Do you know any other celebrity who loves their fans so much that they travel to the other side of the world for them, help them financially, send them gifts, spends HOURS with them on social media and tries to meet as many of us as possible?

• she recently met a girl at a secret session who had possibly a miscarriage, and not only did Taylor make her laugh and made her feel better, but the next day, she received an e-mail from Taylor’s team with a specialized doctor’s address. When she asked how much she had to pay them, they replied that everything had already been covered (x)

I would have written more about this but unfortunately I’m running out of time, so I will let our TS defense squad to keep giving you reliable information.

I would like to formally announce you that whatever you may have heard about her is absolutely absurd, no matter where you found the information, or whether you think it’s true.

Also, her hair is so beautiful and I will defeat you if you dare to fight me on this, and who cares about her dance moves?????? Because if your definition of a good artist includes having nice hair and good dance moves then I think that we have a very different illustration of what talent is. I really think that you should listen to her album “Red” and then I’d like to see if you can write such lyrics and if you can represent feelings through instrumentals. You probably have no idea that she has been rewarded so many times throughout her career because of her talent, and she is one of the most awarded celebrities nowadays, yet she is only 27.

I would like to finish this before I go in class with a clarification. You see, I chose Taylor not only for her music, but also for who she is. She has been there for me when I most needed her, and she never failed to bring a smile to my lips in my darkest times. You have here an entire fandom that would agree with me and would gladly tell you specific reasons why everything she does is important to us and why she is so special. Because Taylor isn’t only a celebrity. She’s the person we’ve looked up to in the past few years. She’s our Aunt Becky. She’s our life savior, for many. She’s our ray of sunshine. But most importantly, she’s our best friend. And we have a relationship based on trust, love, and respect, and in all honesty, I think that it’s beautiful.

i don’t have all my thoughts together on this so its going to be pretty scattered, i just wanna get it out there and maybe come back to it later.

something pretty surreal that happened the other day: in a group of lesbians, a workshop based on intergenerational discussion. young lesbians explaining what its like for them, old lesbians doing the same, you get the idea. at one point one young woman asked her fellow young women to raise their hands if they’d ever disidentified from being a woman, and almost every single young hand in the joint shot up. and it wasn’t just the usual suspects like yours truly, either, i mean, this was regardless of presentation, this was including the femmes… and none of us were surprised, but an AUDIBLE GASP went out from the older lesbians

i dunno. there’s. something happening to lesbians. we’ve always had a pretty fraught relationship to womanhood because cultural images of “Woman” and what she does don’t include us. the difference now is that it makes it so hard to find each other, it takes so much more healing and work before we can even do the real relational healing + generational continuity that is so so necessary for our survival

More doodles of the Voltron D&D session AU within an AU. First is another comic relating to the group naming their characters. Pidge’s naming skills have improved(?) since first coming up with her alias. This leads to Matt’s character getting a slight name change from what it was in his last campaign.

His name before was just Matthias, but he’s changed it to Matthias Promirae Gamellier Holieverna.

Literally the only goal was to make it as long and hard to say as possible.

The next is NPCs for the campaign. Sven the bar keep was originally a nondescript recurring character from previous campaigns he’s run that just  had Sven’s Swedish accent. After the group told him about Sven and the alternate universe shenanigans, he decided to model his appearance after him, as well as his name.

And Paladin Shiro is Shiro bringing a character he played from a previous campaign in as an NPC. I don’t think I’ll just have his character be named Shiro though. I’d like all of them to have names for their characters that are similar enough to their original names so that if they just call each other by name normally, it’ll still work out (e.g. Lancelot easily being shortened to Lance and Katrina being easily shortened to Katie). Pidge, Lance and Matt’s names are set in that regard, but I don’t have names for the rest of the group yet.

And because I am me, I of course had to include the space mice in some way. So both Lotor and Allura have one of the mice basically living in their long, luscious hair. And both mice are rogues because they’re small and are good at sneaking.
