i need no words

I mean we could always kidnap Jemma and Catherine and, bear with me, this is a solid, non-violent plan, we just put to them that Berena is a massive drama in and of itself, so we present them with scripts that we’ve written, introduce them to the wealth of talent amongst us that no doubt includes budding directors/ producers/ anyone with remotely any media experience, show them the crowdfunding we’ve started to enable us to part-fund an independent spin-off. Tell them they get as much or as little creative input as they want, flexi time to pursue other projects, and they won’t be tortured on social media, because we, the fans, will have the solid storylines needed to keep 99% of the Berena fandom happy.

Also, they won’t really get bored because it’s going to be a unique kind of programme where a lot of the AU ideas are also included so they can even time travel, play different careers entirely etc etc.
And they get to kiss each other lots so it’s a win-win really.

There’s no such thing as better or worse, in my opinion…I just have a firmer grasp on my hand control than a beginner artist, and even then, I was once in their place…I’m not even a beginning amateur at animation and I don’t think it’s something I’d pursue as a serious hobby, just something fun to occasionally work on, and I don’t think you should put yourself down as a form of compliment (but I do love your kind words otherwise, they fill me to the brim with joy)

I think every artist can have different style/ability paths - some people are amazing cartoonists but lack talent in the realistic section, some people are amazing with shading and shapes but lack understanding of anatomy, and so on. Personally I’m great with drawing people but I hate drawing backgrounds - I’d rather just paint them!

You find what works best for you, and just cause you start off bad, doesn’t mean you’ll never be good…I believe in you and I think you should keep on trying, especially if you ever get that tablet!

I see that you were anticipating some words from me. And who am I to deny my sweet an eloquent display of words. Words that I wish would reach her heart. Words that I would paint her soul. Words that I seem to lack when I am in her presences, as she leaves me in a state of utter speechlessness. Yes my sweet, I have many words, but I reserve a special set for you. And the only words I fear from those lips I crave to touch, is the safeword. I. Scientia

Can I just say that I kind or really hate cishet people today? Or kind of even just cis people? I’m just so angry right now. I know a lot of people stand behind us but it’s sometimes hard to feel like not everyone wants us dead or just gone.

Reigen stared at him, his expression stern in the way Serizawa had learned it was when he didn’t have to keep up his customer service pleasantries. He stepped close to him and rested his forehead against his shoulder, hiding his expression. His quiet words, however, Serizawa could hear loud and clear.

Happy birthday to my precious source of happiness, inspiration and motivation.
Thank you Sehun for everything. ♡
Never stop smiling. ~ ☆ 

so like… can we please stop acting like mentally ill people are always the abusive one in the relationship, or thst mentally ill people are inherently abusive, or that their illness is negatively affecting/hurting the abled person theyre with more than them.

like when did good ideas like “mental illness isnt an excuse to be abusive” quickly become “mentally ill people are all abusive,” and “i couldnt be with a mentally ill person, theyd abuse me”

when did “abuse is never okay” become “ableism is okay”

Maybe all she needed was for you to hold her. Maybe that’s all it would have taken for her to feel safe. Instead you used her, you confused her. You are the reason she will never trust again. Because just as she thought you’d hold her, you threw her to the ground…

but it’s better if you do - panic! at the disco

i like girls
who resemble the sun;
burning, brilliant,
blinding, if you look for too long.
the kind of light that lingers on your eyelids.

i like girls
who remind me of moonlight;
who have a way of lighting the dark spaces
in my mind on cold nights,
when dawn seems like a distant dream.

i like girls
who personify the ocean;
wild laughter and wide eyes, salt slick skin,
arms raised as they sway as one with the waves,
tide drunk and dizzy with the scent of the sea.

i like girls
who embody the earth;
who ground with a touch. who fight off lightning
and kiss like how rain tastes on your tongue
when you open your mouth to the sky.

she drinks a little too much and cries a little too often, and the music she paints are full of colours you created.
—  j.f // excerpts of stories I will never write • you’re everything I write and everything I don’t

i have literally no sense of time beyond a couple days, either forwards or backwards

something happened a week ago? sure, but it feels the same to me as if it was three weeks ago, or three days. something else happened? ok, but i cant tell you if it came before the other thing, or after, or even on the same day

& if something is more than a week in the future, it just doesnt exist. i cant plan for it. i cant remember any plans people tell me about it. i cant prepare for anything beyond the horizon

its never had too much of an impact on me, but im scared of whatll happen if im a suspect for a crime

‘what were you doing 8pm last friday?’ something, im sure. maybe nothing. honestly i feel like ive only existed this second. ‘you told us this sequence of events before, but now youve changed the order. are you lying?’ i mean im not trying to deceive you but theres a 90% chance that anything i tell you is a false memory. isnt there someone else you can ask? if i try to give you the story again, itll be different again

Post-Blackout

The blackout is coming to an end today…and I have a few things to share. What it showed me- and realizing how bad the reposting issue has become.

During these two weeks I’ve witnessed a few cases:

-I’ve seen my art been being reposted without permission, mostly with ‘credit to the artist™’ or nothing at all on insta/vk/etc.

-I’ve seen my newer drawings with my new watermark being cropped from the picture with the same careless credit

-Someone even attempted to blur the whole thing and leaving a weird stain where the watermark should be (saved it before reporting just in case)

-Also youtubers have been monetizing my work without my knowledge. In some cases, they assumed that when I gave them permission to dub one of my comics, that it extended to having permission to upload other works of mine. An assumption that was completely wrong. So not only was I not informed that they were using more of my work, but they monetized it and gained money from my work. I no longer allow dubbing on my comic anymore because of it.

-Recently, I asked another youtuber to remove a dub they did long ago on one of my comics, and while they eventually removed it from their channel, it didn’t stop them from giving permission to other youtubers to repost MY ART. And while it was their dub, the foundation of that work was my art. No one can give others permission to use my art other than me. However just 4 days after that video was removed, it was reposted onto another channel and monetized. All this I had to find out from people telling me.

-And even worse—yes, it can get worse—yesterday I found out that one of the drawings I made for Adrienette month was being sold on phone cases on Aliexpress.

I never thought *this* will happen to me. Why would someone…do that? Why would someone make money out of our hard work while we create for fun to a fandom we love on our free time?

To be honest, after seeing this—I wanted to quit drawing for the fandom.

But I won’t.

As much as it hurts, the fact that there are people who don’t give a damn about the artist’s wishes and care more about their fat pocket—it won’t mean anything to them. For them I’m *just* another artist–it won’t hurt them losing another one.

I draw ml because I love the characters and the fandom. It makes me happy to see that I can make someone’s day a little better because of my drawings. I made friends through this fandom that became part of my everyday life and to be honest, they boosted my confidence. ML revived my dream again to study animation, it made me want to draw more and brought back the will to learn and improve. I have so many good things to say about the show, the people I encounter- you really changed my life, and I love you all!

And I don’t want this to end because of some nasty people who care more about their following count or the money they can make from a stolen illustration or a silly comic.

I’m just going to continue arting but not share everything…and make the watermark bigger.

So for other artists out there, I just want to share this information. This is just a drop of the ocean of what I have experienced in my short time of posting fanart online. As exciting as it is to have people dubbing your work or asking for permission to share your art on other platforms.

HAVE CAUTION!

Ask questions, ask for links to their pages, look at how they conduct themselves online, check to see if they monetize videos (you can use apps like the heartbeat app to do this as some youtubers like to not share this information), give proper credit/link to your original posts, etc. Some people are looking to use you and use your art for fame, for money, for whatever, and its abuse. It abuses your copyright and hard work. This is something I do because I love art, I love the show, and I want to share that love with others. It is NOT something I create for others to take advantage of or steal…or sell, or to stick an advert on in order to make money.
