i know its a lot of text

Please

Don’t remove the written portion of my art posts for any reason.

You’re welcome to respond to them and disagree with them in any way you want! But I consider the text portion to be as much a part of the post as the pictures. It’s hiding the text from everyone else who views the work off your blog, and everyone who then reblogs the textless version.  

Thank you and extra brownie points to everyone who’s asked me first before making edits to my work. Whether it’s a major or minor change to the original, I feel really appreciated as the creator when you ask and I usually say yes to everyone.

Honestly, I underestimate how relate this comic is… because it just kind of took off… Like I was at school during the whole day and I come back to a bunch of comments and its just so crazy


Edit: There’s a lot of comment and message and I don’t think I can go through it all but I think people should know why it was made. ( I mean other than the fact that it was a school assignment)

When I made this comic in 2016 I just wanted to understand why I hate having my art called anime and I thought if I can put it onto words/images then I can finally come to term with it and kind of put the issue at rest. So when I finished this I showed it to a couple people and just kind of forgot about it… because it just kind of felt resolve to me.

i know a lot of people have noticed how i haven’t been online as much and as present on tumblr and so i wanna say that ever since not having my laptop for a long time i’ve been thinking a lot about how i use the internet and now its been impacting me in ways that both i knew about and didn’t know about. i had a long talk with @kamalakhan last night and i think i’m gonna change up how i use my blogs and interact with people i only know online in general. 

i deleted most of my text posts on this blog & i changed to this url because i want this blog to be mostly fandom related and only to things i care about. my secondary blog @diamondsteel is gonna be for my life updates, aesthetic, things like that. i unfollowed some peoples sideblogs/personal blogs so i can disengage myself because i really need to make some changes on that front too. i don’t think i broke any mutuals but if you guys wanna do that yourselves just softblock me. i’m gonna be making all these changes across the board so … yeah. love y’all.


*** also don’t ask for the MM url. i already know who i’m going to give it to and i spoke to them and they accepted it. sorry. 😁

Am I the only one that doesn’t care at all that Mon El said that he loved Kara before Sanvers have said it? Like the relationship between Kara and Mon El is messy and lacks development, so I’m not surprised that he said that he loved her so quickly. In all honesty he may not even truly love her, she’s just the first person he’s truly been attached to and not a hook up, which he was doing on Daxam. 

BUT Sanvers has been developed and I’m just waiting for that special moment that they actually say it. Not some type of “I’m saying this cause I don’t want to lose you bullshit,” but they say it cause it’s true. Cause they truly can’t live without one another and love each other, ride or die. When they do say it, it will be impactful and not easily forgotten like Mon El’s confession.

“In September 2010, Bell Let’s Talk began a new conversation about Canada’s mental health. At that time, most people were not talking about mental illness. But the numbers spoke volumes about the urgent need for action. Millions of Canadians, including leading personalities engaged in an open discussion about mental illness, offering new ideas and hope for those who struggle, with numbers growing every year.”

Today, January 25th, is #BellLetsTalk day… Use your social media platforms and speak about how mental illness has affected you, or someone you know… There’s also a special Snapchat filter you can use

If you’re a Bell/Bell Alliant customer, for ever text you send or call you make, ¢5 more will be donated to the cause (Canadian Mental Health programs)

I know Tumblr is very American-centric in a lot of its content, so I truly do hope that this gets seen by Canadian users…

@fuckyeahtoronto @allthecanadianpolitics @canadianstereotypes @canadians

This post will be reposted multiple times today as it’s an issue very close to me and also relates back to issues of being black and how mental health issues are “not a thing”, especially if you’re coming from a west Indian background– you’re haunted or Obeah tek yuh… You need to go church (lmao which? The Baptist? The Anglican? The Penticostal? The Presbyterian?)…

It’s so disheartening knowing that you could want to reach out to your family but you can’t bc you know it’ll make you feel frustrated and worse than you currently do… Sometimes your friends, for as much as they care, they may not quite /get/ it…

You’re not alone, we’re all here for you.

some things i noticed during hamilton
  • king george does the turn off your cellphones announcement right before it starts and he says “enjoy MY show” lmfao
  • i was already tearing up during alexander hamilton rip
  • in the beginning laurens and hercules are v loud and usually drunk there are multiple instances of it in aaron burr, sir, the story of tonight, satisfied, and the story of tonight reprise and they always made the audience laugh
  • in my shot laurens turns to hamilton and says “you and i do or die” more privately and quietly to him alone and then turns back and continues  
  • peggy is actually reluctant in the schuyler sisters and tries to stop angelica before being quite literally dragged across the stage when she sings “and peggy”
  • when everyone exits in the story of tonight hamilton and laurens leave with their arms around each other :’)
  • in farmer refuted the squad is standing off to the side listening to samuel seabury and hercules and lafayette nudge and push hamilton forward while giggling to themselves until he finally challenges seabury
  • during you’ll be back king george jerks his shoulders up and down in time with his da da da das he looked absolutely ridiculous it was so funny
  • in helpless after hamilton gets eliza’s father’s blessing he looks to eliza and does this ridiculous little celebratory dance but then mr schuyler looks back over at him and he makes a show of composing himself
  • also in helpless washington was the one who helped hamilton get ready for the wedding and he fixed up his coat it was such a nice moment :’)
  • yo satisfied literally changed my fucking life ok bc obv renee is SO TALENTED WOW and bc the choreography was so cool man they did actually rewind everything somehow so it was the scene at the beginning of helpless im not entirely sure how they pulled it off tbh
  • in the story of tonight reprise the squad sways/thrusts their hips crudely while they tease hamilton for getting married it’s so fucking funny
  • wait for it is life changing. that is all
  • history has its eyes on you blew me away i love chris so much
  • yorktown is INSANE so many things are happening at once and the lights go crazy and the ensemble dance breakdown is just incredible
  • at the end of what comes next king george held out his hands expectantly then huffed and stomped off stage when no one started clapping immediately honestly all of his appearances were 10/10
  • oh my god dear theodosia was too much for me because it’s just burr and hamilton alone on stage singing tenderly to their newborn children
  • BUT THEN
  • eliza walks in and delivers the news about laurens’ death (it’s not in the soundtrack) and hamilton’s demeanor changes immediately and after about a minute of grim silence he says “i have so much work to do” and exits and during this entire thing laurens stands off to the side surrounded by blue light and quietly and sadly sings the beginning lines of the story of tonight i damn near started bawling y’all
  • in non stop burr and hamilton are at a trial and burr gets v exasperated as hamilton delivers the long winded opening statement and after burr says “that’s all you had to say” hamilton looks like he’s going to stop but then in a typical hamilton fashion he darts back to keep talking when he says “one more thing–”
  • i especially loved nonstop bc the blending of the different character harmonies being sung all at once is phenomenal and outstanding i was completely blown away
  • in what’d i miss jefferson was encouraging the crowd’s applause and cheers and cupped his hand by his ear and leaned forward to hype the crowd up and it made everyone go even crazier it was so great
  • after jefferson finishes his argument in cabinet battle #1 he drops the mic and madison’s hand is waiting underneath to catch it lmaooooo
  • eliza beatboxes during philip’s rap/poem in take a break and philip’s voice breaks really badly so it ended up sounding like “you can write rhymes but you can’t write MINE” and that’s why hamilton says “WHAT”
  • also hamilton declines the invitation to the schuyler vacation and angelica starts after him to talk some sense into him but eliza stops her and shakes her head and they leave arm in arm they don’t even KNOW
  • maria wore a red dress with red lipstick in say no to this and i got chills bc jasmine is so talented and i am very gay that’s all i have to say
  • ok i lied towards the end of say no to this maria to sits on hamilton’s lap and places one of his hands on her stomach and the other on her chest i was vvv side eye emoji
  • i also got chills during room where it happens and one last time and literally every song ngl i’m trash
  • jefferson literally sniffs hamilton and makes a disgusted face when he says hamilton “smells like new money” in cabinet battle #2
  • king george comes back in i know him as the others are exiting and he flinches away in disgust if any of them got close to him it’s hysterical and then he jumps around as he excitedly anticipates being able to see adams crash and burn as president
  • KING GEORGE ALSO GOT BURR TO BREAK CHARACTER!!! burr laughed as he sang the beginning of the adams administration because george was making exaggerated gestures from where he set up a stool on the end of the stage to watch adams’ disastrous presidency i feel so #blessed
  • oh my god and then when hamilton calls john adams a “FAT MOTHERF–” in his iconic drag he drops a stack of books off the balcony so the thud censors the rest of it as the red strobe lights flashed it’s so extra i love it
  • in we know jefferson’s “whaaaaat” is pure giddiness and he rushes over to snatch james reynolds’ letter out of burr’s hands to read for himself he’s such an asshole
  • hurricane is AWESOME ok it’s one of my faves the lights were dimmed and hamilton is alone on stage singing and then maria gives hamilton the quill i was like bro…… that’s some poetic shit………
  • lord the reynolds pamphlet was crazy everyone was moving around and making it rain and then king george came down the stairs and smugly pranced across the stage while hamilton is trying to plead with everyone that at least he was honest about the money
  • burn was so fucking sad and it didn’t help that eliza was on her knees for half of it just lay me to rest y’all
  • JESUS and then after philip’s death in stay alive reprise eliza wails mournfully as she sobs over his body it’s the saddest thing i’ve ever heard i felt like i was hit by a train
  • sjdfnskfnksfj nothing will ever prepare you for seeing it’s quiet uptown live it’s a beautifully sad number bc hamilton and eliza are standing center stage while people move in slow motion in dim blue light around them but eliza stares straight ahead while hamilton begs for forgiveness until she finally reaches for his arm and rests her head on his shoulder and says “it’s quiet uptown”
  • burr actually runs around grinning as he eavesdrops on all the peoples’ views of him and he even fist pumps a bit in the election of 1800
  • your obedient servant was so funny bc there was only one desk and burr wrote one letter to hamilton and after a dancer delivered it burr and hamilton switched places at the desk and hamilton handed off letter after letter to be delivered to burr and burr just looked so done
  • god the choreography in the world was wide enough was a++++ because burr fires the gun and a dancer shows the motion of the bullet by acting as if she was holding it and moved it closer to hamilton and then everything slows down as hamilton has his moment of reflection and he actually runs away when he notices how close the bullet is getting at one point but then he finally decides to accept his fate and doesn’t move as the bullet comes rushing towards him when time resumes normal speed
  • towards the end of who lives, who dies, who tells your story eliza and alexander face each other and hold hands but then hamilton steps back and eliza turns to the audience and at the veeeeery last moment she holds her hands out and gasps and smiles as if she sees him on the ~other side~ after decades of being apart and she’s ready to go be with him forever and then the lights cut to black and it ends i stood up immediately and clapped with goddamn tears in my eyes
  • TL;DR there are a lot of little quirks in hamilton that make it a wonderful live experience and basically however you imagine the show it’s 100000x better trust me
Just to be clear

[FINAL EDIT]

so the sheikah text on the back of the map is actually romaji and i tried translating some of it. there are only 5 complete sentences that are visible. there may be some minor mistakes in translation because the rest of the text on the map is too small/blurry to read and also im not fluent in japanese. though there’s context missing, we could still maybe learn a little about the story from this?

L e t   m e   k n o w was about pain, uneasiness, uncertainty. It was about the darkness that came with the kind of love people called love because they didn’t know what else to call it.  It was about the loneliness that accompanied falling for a person who wouldn’t take the leap for you. It was about holding on to things that were long lost, or had never been there to begin with.”

(Well it’s December guys and you know that what means. Selfie dump from selfies over the year and talking about it. It’s gonna get kinda text heavy because I’ve had kind of a shit year, and each of these photos represents either an important event or period of time. Time to get sad but also gay! 

These photos are in chronological order, and under the cut I’ll be explaining them. They all have the dates they were posted as descriptions. My face tag is #ax to the face if you want to go seek out the original posts! (Warning for emotional abuse ment. and suicidal ideation ment. under cut)

On Supergirl Metas and Commentary...

I know that not everybody obsessively re-watches episodes and then looks up transcript text in order to write analysis/metas. (Yes, I do that. Judge me as ye will.) Part of the reason I do this, though, is because it’s easy for an initial impression of an episode to mess with my memory/perception of events, and when I write metas, I want to base them on facts (such as we have them from the show).

I’ve noticed that a lot of hate in the Karamel tag will make bold-face claims about the relationship yet fail to provide an accurate description of a situation or even a character quotation in context. Obviously, if you consider something bad or abusive, you’re probably not willing to re-watch the episode or go to its transcript for evidence… I suppose that makes sense. And when it comes to opinions, I guess it doesn’t really matter.

But when you write things like “the writers are promoting abusive relationships to young girls and teenagers,” is it too much to ask that you provide a little more context than your own opinion/conclusion for such a statement? You are literally claiming that this relationship is dangerous to young viewers–writers beware.

I’d like to know why–and not in general terms like “he never does what she says” or “he argues with her a lot” because neither statement is entirely true and both lack realistic context. In fact, both these example statements are the kind of thing one might have as an impression from an episode that isn’t entirely backed up by the events/quotations in that episode–but you feel very strongly about it, so the facts become less relevant.

Can you tell me what happened on the show (in context), when it happened (which episode), and why this specific instance is abusive in nature? Note the emphasis. Every relationship (romantic or otherwise) has conflicts, so a conflict in and of itself is not abusive.
