I got a commission to draw a daiMACura, and here it is :) I had a lot of fun with this one. Thanks to patchesotron-art for commissioning me, this was a total blast!!! After they order one I may see about making prints myself ;)
15:47 sometimes the words i can’t say build walls in my throat, post guards to lean against my teeth, an oppression that forces my thumbs to tap out text messages i never let myself send [UNSENT]
15:48 you take my scarf every morning. i think you like how it smells. i think you notice that i notice. i don’t think you notice that i take yours too [UNSENT]
16:10 yess i got the milk, blue like you asked. did you want me to grab bread? [SEEN 16:11]
23:45 every conversation we have is a complicated mess of maybe and could be and i wish it would be [UNSENT]
00:59 sometimes i think i can hear you breathe through the walls. your sighs shake the foundations of our house and they rattle my bones. i hate that you’re unhappy and i hate that i could help if i just opened my mouth to tell you i love you because i do. i do. i just can’t say it yet [UNSENT]
03:09 the last time you told me you loved me it was because i’d stubbed my toe and then flailed around the room like we were on a boat rolling over the waves and i had nothing to hold onto but your laughter and so i prolonged the moment, drew out the pain just to see you smile for a little longer. i didn’t know what to do, what to say, how to act. how to say it back [UNSENT]
08:05 you took my scarf again and i took yours. i watched you through the window as you flung yourself from the front door. tonight i’ll roll my eyes like i always do when i pull it from your neck. i’ll laugh because it’s a habit by now and we’ll linger in the silence that follows, two stars in the same sky but still thousands of light years apart [UNSENT]
22:05 that’s it. that’s enough. i can hear you crying through the wall we share. it’s muffled like you’re trying to hide it and it kills me that you think you need to. i’m putting the kettle on and we’re going to eat cake and i’m going to kiss the crumbs from your face, if you’ll let me [SENT] [SEEN 22:05]
07:00 i think that last night was the best night of my life. i love you. the weather woman said it might snow. i love you. don’t forget to take my scarf when you leave. i love you [SENT] [SEEN 07:01]
I really don’t understand why people hate companions. I just don’t get it. Yeah, some may not be your favorite, but to sit there and say you HATE them? I loved every companion. I loved Rose, I loved Martha, I loved Donna, I loved Amy and Rory, and I loved Clara. And I know I will love Bill. Why? Because they are flawed, because they aren’t perfect, because they represent real people like us, because they sometimes get on my nerves and because the Doctor chose them. I love all the companions because I can see little bits of myself, good and bad, in all of them.
Unfortunately, I feel like I’m one of the few who feel this way.
How do you feel about that Piplup not being Dawn's?
short, Funny™ answer that suits this blog:
It just?? It’s not just about Piplup not being Dawn’s (I do have beef with it though because they specifically showed Piplup BEFORE it was revealed not to be Dawn’s to lure us) it’s just? Why OCs. This movie is meant to celebrate the anime reaching 20 years but how can you do that with OCs that we have absolutely zero connection, memories or nostalgia with?
Yeah there’s Ash, and I love him, but all those companions that we’ve had for the past 20 years have been there to support Ash and now they’re all gone? They’re telling a fake story. Ash wouldn’t be Ash without Misty, Brock, Tracey, May, Max, Dawn, Iris, Cilan, Serena, Bonnie, Clemont and now Mallow, Lillie, Lana, Kiawe and Sophocles. SO MANY characters that have shaped Ash as a character, showing us parts of his personality through his dynamics with them, how they have all helped him be a better trainer, but they’ve all been replaced with some OCs. I’m beyond bitter, all those amazing characters have been brushed under the rug for them. It’s not celebrating 20 years of the anime, just some completely off-canon AU. I’m not even gonna mention not including the rivals, like Gary and Paul have been the most influential rivals for Ash but nah, fuck em, let’s put this new guy in.
OH AND IRIS. Didn’t get one cameo, one mention in the whole goddamn entirety of XY and now she won’t even get a chance to return in this movie unless she’s a gym leader for 1.2 seconds. Can you tell I’m annoyed? Because hooo boy, I AM.
Okay but imagine the companions reactions to you proposing/giving them the other wedding ring:
Piper: Would be a stuttering blushing mess, “I-I mean, like, you’re sure Blue? With me? Like for real??!?"
Preston: He’d be beaming, his face would light up like never before as he agrees. Through in an affectionate "I love you too” in there.
MacCready: Nerd would pick you up and spin you around, probably fall to the ground and pepper you face with kisses.
Curie: Enthusiastically repeating “Oui Oui Oui!!!” While slightly bouncing with excitement.
Danse: Would be silent for a moment. You think he’s about to say no when he softly asks “Are you sure?” After you nod yes he tried to put it on, only to forget he’s wearing power armor so it doesn’t fit.
Cait: Tries to be as stoic as possible, but she starts crying. She never thought she’d ever be this happy.
Hancock: puts the ring on, but doesn’t say anything, he takes your hand and brings to to the balcony of the state house in Goodneighbor. He calls everyone to the square and announces the engagement loudly and excitedly, much to your embarrassment. Dips you for a kiss just to show off even more.
When I got Origins, my uncle tried to warn me off playing an elven mage
on my first playthrough because “everyone hates mages and everyone hates
elves”. I was a bit scared but I played as Surana anyway, and I love
Jowan and Irving (and Alistair and all the companions) for being
friendly and sweet to me when I expected the exact opposite of that from
