i think you should reblog this

ANYway if you think that cis people should have to be careful how they treat trans characters when they write them, and white people should be careful in how they write poc, but you think non mlm being held to the same standards when writing mlm is “policing,” there is a slight chance you might be….homophobic

Pissed off......

I am just utterly pissed. I was just looking though posts when I came across this anti wildehopps page. But what mostly angers me, is that the blogger used violence-like posts (e.g. Kill us shippers with guns,etc.).

First things first, I’m not saying that anti-shippers blogs should be banned. We all have the right to decide what we would do say and think freely. So I’m OK with that.

But insulting people just to express how you hate Wildehopps, that is totally unacceptable. We all have our own feelings, for gummy bears sake. Just because you hate this ship, doesn’t mean you can say stuff that will f*ck up their emotions. (plz excuse my language) Why you guys have to be that cold-hearted? Are there not other ways to express?

Imagine your favorite ship and shippers got insulted just because they hate this ship to their bones deep down. How would you feel? Have you ever thought/care for others?

Also, as I said, its fine if you hate this fandom,I don’t f*cking care, but posting anti-ship stuff with the ship name tag?! Dude what’s wrong with you?! Are you trying to start a fandom fight?! If so, you seriously need to see a doctor. The shippers were just chilling around and you ruined our peace. Why?! Can you not poke your nose to our business? Ever heard of the word privacy?!

Sorry for this serious post…… Thank you for spending a few seconds to look at this. If you can, help me reblog and spread the message to every Zootopia lovers around Tumblr.

i just saw a lesbian blogger i used to love reblog a post from lesbianjennyholzer saying "HETEROSEXUAL LOVE WAS INVENTED TO MANIPULATE WOMEN" & she tagged it "not to be a biphobe but... (insert cup-of-tea emojis)" and i'm just... sad. like i 100% don't think lesbians should have to care about men but bi love isn't het & biphobia isn't funny?? :/// i dunno, i just needed to vent my disappointment to someone. your solidarity blog is making me really happy, thank you for creating it <3

hm.. yeah the ‘not a biphobe but…’ tag is a bit unnecessary but I’m not overly offended by the post to be perfectly honest. I think the point of the post is talking about the way that relationships between men and women are socially constructed. And I don’t think its unfair to say their constructed at the detriment of women. Women often sacrifice careers when in relationships with men and they’re socially pressured to compromise far more than men. I think that’s all op was trying to say. Women getting involved with men obviously shouldn’t be blamed for that being the case though.

Tbh imo opinion that ‘not a biphobe but… tea’ is annoying and uneccessary bc I don’t think the op is biphobic to begin with? the assumption that bi women can’t understand structural misogyny is what annoys me more to be perfectly honest.

I’m sorry if that’s not the answer you were looking for. I’m not trying to have a go at you but those are my honest thoughts. I’m glad that my solidarity blog has helped you x

I really want to know who you are, who is the face behind this blog, but I'm gonna say DON'T POST THE PIC. Because I also keep my blog a secret, and I would hate if someone I know found out about it. It would be very ackward, but more importantly, scary. Once you post the pic, people will reblog it over 1000 times. I think you should take this pretty little secret to your grave. And, since this is the last message I send you, I wish you all the good luck you deserve in life. Heartfelt thanks.

Yeah I have to agree. I’ll upload the one now without the pic, I’m just terrified that someone I personally know will see the post. And you’ll understand why I don’t want that, within the post. Ugh I actually wanted to include it!

Right back at you. Thank you so much 💙

Okay so like NO one has heard of this musical before but like...

JASPER IN DEADLAND IS SO GOOD. 

Okay summary time: It’s basically about this kid named Jasper [Who really likes diving and wears a kickass red sweater) has this best friend named, Agnes. They love each other, but Jasper thinks she deserves better. She confesses and Jasper unable to reincorporate for the reason mentioned above and doesn’t give her an answer. SO trying to get an answer, they say they’re gonna meet at this cliff (They’re hang out <3) but Jasper gets there a little late and Agnes tries diving off the cliff and fails….and also drowns. Oh no she’s dead. But Jasper, being the lovesick and selfless boy he is jumps into save her. Saying that he’d give his soul up too save her. And might also being dying too. And then BOOM we meet the ‘villain’ Mr. Lethe (Yes like that river in the Greek Mythos) whose basically argues with his boss (Psst it’s pluto/hades) about if this soul should be let in. He loses and let’s Jasper’s soul into ‘deadland’. Thus the title, after a dramatic opening sequence he makes it his mission to save Anges from the underworld and bring her back to life. 

Long story short: It’s a modern day Orpheus and Eurydice retelling (Kind of) as well as a crossover fanfic (musical) with various underwold myths. Some examples: 

  • Lethe is a River in the Greco-Roman Mythos (as mentioned above). It makes you forget things. 
  • Cerberus guards the front gate into deadland
  • OH Deadland is split up into ‘circles’ like how Dante’s inferno. 
  • The Chiron shows up too, the greek ferry man
  • Osiris shows up (though it’s brief) as a singer in a club in ‘city circle’ 
  • Said club is named Helheim (From Norse mythology) 
  • Speaking of Norse Myth! Loki and Hel show up as well for a quickie cameo as Lackies. 
  • The second gate is protected by Ammit, a demon from the edyptain mythos that eat hearts (She even has her own song) Sadly Anubis doesn’t get s shout out :( 
  • When he get too the most ‘hellish’ part of deadland it’s ruled over by a guy named ‘Little Lu’. A fallen angle aka Lucifer. 
  • Sisyphus gets a named drop as he is in the ‘hell’ part of deadland 
  • A little more less known Greek myth as well, the daughters of Danus are there too. As well as Brutus, that guy who stabbed Caesar a bunch of times.
  • Remember how I said this story was a retelling or Orpheus and Eurydice? The show knows this because Eurydice basically plays the part of a Obi-wan Kenobi in this and helps Jasper on his journey. IT’S  ALMOST LIKE SHE WANTS THEM TO HAVE A HAPPY ENDING BC SHE DIDN’T GET ONE :((((((((
  • Elysium is one of the last circles. 
  • Pluto or better known as Hades is the big boss of Dealand with his wifey Persephone. They’re lethe’s boss.  

BUT THOSE ARE JUST SOME REFERENCES THAT MAKE MY MYTH LOVING HEART SWELL!!! I’m sure they’re are more (Since I sadly never made it to a stage production). But the real meat is the songs, I’ll give some of my favorites. 

  • Jasper Goodbye  (The opening song) 
  • What is Life (Cerberus’s ‘solo’) 
  • The Killing (Japser’s Answer to Cerberus’s question) 
  • The Forgetting (Sometimes your just start speaking in Portuguese when a magical river washes away your memories)  
  • Living Dead (A bunch of Dead people love being dead: The song) 
  • Hungry for Your Heart (Remember when I said Ammit got a solo. This is that solo.) 
  • Stroke by Stroke (Uplifting water metaphor: The song) 
  • Beat and Broken Spirits (The most fun song about internal damnation sung by Satan) 
  • Awful People (Undead man/Physical embodiment sings about how awful the world is, obviously.) 
  • Elysium (Everything sucks back home, maybe we should stay dead?: The song) 
  • Lifesong (Eurydice’s solo! Basically Uplifting life metaphor: The song) 
  • The Trade / The Swim (HAPPY ENDINGS ALL AROUND! Hello Jasper Hello)

REALLY I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELINGS ABOUT JASPER IN DEADLAND AND I THINK EVERYONE SHOULD CHECK IT OUT. The whole album is on youtube and itunes. And you can find a lot of the workshops on there as well. 

Some just cool things: 

Really look up this musical. It’s worth listening too.

so i’ve been thinking a lot about tumblr’s “anti-recovery” mindset and come to the conclusion that a lot of it is actually anti-wellness.

some people can’t recover. for example, i have ADHD and autism and i’ll never recover because there’s nothing to recover from - it’s hard-wired in my brain from the day i was born.

but wellness isn’t about forcing yourself to be neurotypical. wellness is about being content and satisfied and trying to be your best self - and for a lot of us that is not neurotypical! 

speaking of my personal experience with ADHD and autism that i just mentioned, for me, wellness would be minimizing symptoms i dislike and that are harmful to me or other people (executive dysfunction, lack of focus, erratic behavior, etc.) while maximizing and appreciating the symptoms of my neurodivergence i love (ADHD makes me creative and colorful! autism makes me passionate about the things i love and strive to know everything about them!)

so really i think a big part of it is understanding the difference. if your neurodivergence is something you can recover from (i have many other diagnoses i believe are recoverable) and you want to recover that’s great! but you don’t need to be neurotypical to be well, to be satisfied and happy and your best self. 

neurodivergence isn’t bad. people aren’t bad for being neurodivergent. but we should encourage people to find good ways to be happy and satisfied and use their brains to help them, not hurt them

Listen Sarah J. Mass fans

I think there needs to be a common understanding that when ACOWAR comes out no one should post spoilers on tumblr for AT LEAST 2-3 weeks. Gives everyone the chance to get the book and digest every bit.( if I takes longer leave a comment about how long you need, tbh I can read a 700 page book in less than 2 hours cuz I read fast lol) Idk about you guys but I’d prefer not to come on tumblr and the first thing on my dash is like the biggest spoiler alert EVER

REBLOG THIS AND LIKE IT SO EVERYONE CAN GET THE MEMO AND WE DONT HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE PAIN OF A SPOILER ALERT

NATIONAL ABORIGINAL DAY

National Aboriginal Day is on June 21st. If it doesn’t coincide with another event (I remember a few years back that it did with BlackOut, but was worked around), I think we should celebrate. If you’re Aboriginal / Indigenous, upload your selfies, post art, talk about Aboriginal characters that you know and love, talk about books and films made by and for Indigenous people. We are still here but we are individually unique and have our own experiences and stories to tell. 

Use #HappyAboriginalDay and spread the word.

EDIT: The date for BlackOut is June 6th. We’re in the clear!

SECOND EDIT: 

This post has gained a lot of attention over the last couple of days! Thank you to everybody who has shared and reblogged it. I want to take a moment to address a question that keeps popping up: if you are indigenous/aboriginal, you can participate if you choose to! This is not limited just to Native American / First Nations people. If you are Ainu, Maori, Saami, native Hawaiian, etc, feel free to participate! It’s great opportunity for us to represent ourselves, our cultures, our lives, our heroes, and celebrate both our differences and similarities. 

I can’t wait to see you all on June 21st! Keep boosting this post and don’t forget to use the #HappyAboriginalDay tag!

If the art was that good people would see it anyway. Without the artist needing to reblog it 100 times

I see you’re stemming from liv’s @larvesta own answer about this and I’m not gonna lie, I’m really hesitant about saying anything on the matter bc i don’t do this kind of thing but I realise people actually think this way so here’s a proper answer. 

It doesn’t work that way. I should know, I should really know. People here on Tumblr get lucky often and you wouldn’t think that, especially if you don’t create content yourself. Things just don’t become popular all of a sudden, most of the time it needs to get reblogged by the right person and add the balance between having good content yourself as well as an ongoing status as a creator. Not to mention how you go about treating your followers, your personality and how you act here. And you’ll tell me; “But people with good art have so many notes! It must be because they’re good! See, you don’t need to reblog it so many times!”

I hope you know what it feels like to be an artist here because I do. I especially do. I have talked, reblogged, supported, and have met so many, too many artists here, some insanely obscure. Some whose work looks like it took so many hours and has very little over 50 notes; my work included. And I can tell you now that I can personally handpick and tell you that some of the work I’m most proud of and have took many hours on are not over 200 notes. I’m not saying I’m frustrated by that, because some of us are reassured in our skill but let me tell you that every time I think of a fellow artist out there who releases amazing art and earns very little notes who looks at their note count and wonders if they are good enough, my heart breaks. And there’s young artists who are still getting by, who are not as good yet but took the same amount of effort and time, they deserve to be cheered on. 

Because people think artists here are machines, capable of creating content without regards to who actually appreciates it. No one is like that, artists are fragile just like everyone else and people really forget that. They really do. 

People don’t just see the art out of nowhere, do you understand the huge amount in this platform? There’s millions of work everywhere, you need to be supported to be seen, you need to withstand the thousands of others around you and you might have to create something that’s away from the norm to stand out, you might have to take hours of your time. You don’t know unless you really indulge yourself this platform, you don’t know unless you yourself do work for more than four hours, no breaks and absolutely tired, and look at your note count to see a disheartening number. You have no idea, you really don’t.

And don’t guilt them, please. I could reblog my art so many times, but sometimes the thougt of ‘maybe it gets annoying’ always bears in my mind, artists are made to feel like it’s okay that they’re not being appreciated. I’m proud of those who reblog their art because they know they deserve better, and guess what? They do.  

There’s a difference between good content and popular content, popular content aimed towards a specific audience that you know will like and reblog that. Good content is a dangerous hit and miss. I really appreciate people who do art for things that are not popular, because sometimes they really do have to rely solely on their skills. I say it’s a dangerous hit and miss because you know it might not have that specific audience, but you still take the effort and time into it anyway. Imagine that; knowing something is popular but going for the alternative anyway; taking time, taking effort, putting your all into it. That’s absolutely insane, man. Imagine knowing you can put that time and effort into something popular that might attract way more notes, but still doing something else for the sake of that something else. 

Also there’s the matter of timezones, in which there’s a worldly concept that everyone is in different times and not everyone is here at the same time to see the same content. I don’t want to explain this; please at least understand the concept of time. 

Artists reblog their work because they want others to see it, to appreciate it. Because sometimes it’s the only way others can. Reblogging their own work is an artist’s way of supporting themselves and you think I’m going to let you let them think that that’s a bad thing? That they’re not allowed to do that? Go home, buddy. 

I don’t have anything against anyone, I just wrote this realising that people actually think this is actually how it works and even then, I don’t have anything against you, maybe you’re just misinformed, some just don’t know enough about this to really understand. 

So here it is buds: support artists supporting themselves. It’s as simple as that. 

being asexual is seen as “too straight” by the LGBT+ community and “too gay” for straight people. the truth is, we are neither. if straight people are “as straight as a line” and gay people are “straight like a circle”, then we’re as straight as the void. sexual attraction? i don’t even know her. you are seriously in the wrong place if you’re looking for an instant sexual connection. don’t try to “””fix””” us we’re good. keep moving please.

y’all should reblog this if you’re still planning on being here after skam ends. i know a lot of people are worried that everyone is going to move on right away but i think it would be nice if this (even though it’s a small gesture) could potentially reassure those people that just because skam is ending very soon doesn’t mean there won’t be others out there still active after the show is done :)

“no terfs allowed”

pretty quickly after i came out as a lesbian on this website, i added “no terfs allowed” to my bio. every lesbian i follow has it in their bios. i follow wlw who aren’t lesbians, and while some have it in their bios, it’s less common.

i’ve been thinking about the general sentiment of “fuck you, terfs,” and why it bothers me. it’s not the attitude against terfs (i don’t like them or want to associate with them either), but rather the performative nature of it. it allows us afab wlw to sit comfortably knowing we’re not one of Them. it allows us to get comfortable, to wrongly assume that our job as allies is done because we said we don’t affiliate with terfs.

first of all, while all terfs are transphobes, not all transphobes are terfs. all of us (afab wlw) have privilege over trans wlw, even if we are nonbinary (as i and many of my afab lesbian friends are). we all need to be aware of our own privilege and not distance ourselves from it by proudly displaying our anti-terf sentiment. sometimes i think by saying “i’m not a terf and i don’t affiliate with terfs” what comes out is “i’m not holding myself accountable for my own transphobia because it’s not me who’s the problem.” we’re turning terfs into scapegoats for transphobia (and especially transmisogyny) and that’s such a reductive view of the way that systematic oppression works.

second of all, afab wlw, to an extent, should want terfs to follow them because assuming we’re doing our jobs as allies, we’re potentially exposing people with toxic views to information and opinions that they might otherwise not hear. i would much rather a terf be following me than be following a trans woman. the violence a transmisogynist could enact on me is significantly less, so i should be putting myself between terfs and trans women, amplifying the voices of trans women in the hopes that terfs and transphobes will hear. cis/afab wlw telling terfs to go away is shutting a door. it’s one thing to not want them on your blog in order to protect yourself; that i understand. it’s a whole other thing to keep them from reading what you write and reblog because they have bad opinions (to put it lightly). how are their opinions ever going to change if they never leave their echo chamber?

third of all, i think the whole “no terfs allowed” thing swings back to the scapegoating of the lesbian community within the lgbt+ population. before, when i identified as bi/pansexual, i never felt like i needed to make excuses for the label i chose. sure, i spent some time defending my sexuality as i faced biphobia (and my own internalized homophobia), but i never found myself saying “i’m bi, but i’m not one of the Bad Ones” the way that i feel like i have to say all the time as an out lesbian. to the point where i have to essentially write, “i’m not one of the Bad Ones” in my own bio to justify my being a lesbian in an online public space. i know this is a much more complicated issue than i am making it out to be in this post, but it does really bother me that every afab lesbian i know also feels this need to clarify their position on this matter when it seems like no other subgroup of the lgbt acronym does. 

so putting in your description something like “no terfs allowed” is performative allyship, but it also feels like a necessary defense against lesbophobic assumptions. both things bother me, but i feel helplessly caught in the middle - it’s necessary for me to protect myself against lesbophobia by putting it in my description, but in doing so i feel like i am failing to do my full part as an ally to trans women 

this post is okay to reblog, and in fact i would love to hear other people’s (especially other lesbians’, and especially trans lesbians’) input on this

Ok so I had a bit of a realisation about my executive dysfunction… (this is gonna be pretty wordy)
I hope most of us have seen that one very informative post about how executive dysfunction works and suggestions for dealing with it, such as breaking things down into detailed steps. As informative as it is, it hasn’t been much use to me. (Check it out here)

I’m the type of person who often has trouble utilizing a tool or method if I don’t know how it works. That’s what happened for me with that post. I thought “alright, I’ll just break it down into steps”, but because I didn’t know why this worked, I wasn’t able to utilize it properly, and it just didn’t work for me. Until a couple nights ago when I realised how it is supposed to work.
I had been trying for a couple of hours to get out of bed and go to the kitchen, but I was just stuck. Then I realised why I was stuck. I was tucked into bed and holding my phone. Whenever my brain tried to issue the command, “go to the kitchen”, this command would be immediately cancelled, because there were unsatisfied conditions that had to be met before that action could be performed. These conditions were that I needed to remove my blanket and put my phone away, because, well, I can’t prepare food wrapped in a blanket and holding a phone.

So my brain would cancel “go to the kitchen” because it knew that I had to do other things before that would be possible, but it would then fail to recognize and initiate those tasks.
At this point, now that I understood the concept of unsatisfied requirements, I was then able to break it up into useful steps because I was able to recognize what steps I was missing. So my steps went from, “go to kitchen, make food” to, “put phone away, take off cover, sit up, get up, walk into the kitchen…” and so on.

In short, if you’re having trouble breaking things down into helpful steps, consider this: does the step you’re working on right now have simpler requirements that you need to meet before the step will become possible?

((sorry this was so long, I’m terrible with words but I’m hoping I might help someone else who’s been having problems similar to mine. and if any of this doesn’t make sense to you, please ask me to clarify))

AND DONE!  This last commission was for a client who wanted some nice fluff of Phryne Fisher and Jack Robinson from the tv series, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries.  I included a version with just the lighting layers, because I think they came out especially well and that some of the subtleties were lost with the values and textures applied.

Thank you everyone who bought a commission from this last queue.  For those waiting for the next queue to go up, the announcement should go up either today or tomorrow, and when it does I’ll be contacting the people on the waiting list to give them priority for the first spots in the queue.

(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧ HEEEEEEEEEY~~!! ✧゚・: *ヽ(◕ヮ ◕ヽ)

YOOO guess who’s reached over 2k followers!! Thank y’all so much ❤ ❤
I have absolutely no idea how these  follower-special-thingies  work and how they are supposed to look like. But I like to use them as a motivation for me to draw something and share it with you since I think that you, as my followers,  should see that I’m actually able to do decent fanart as well (✿´‿`)
(I just don’t want you to think that the only thing I can do is reblogging lel)

I’d really like do draw more but, unfortunately, I just can’t find the right motivation to sit down and draw stuff on a regular basis ლ(ಠ益ಠლ) And even if I feel motivated, I mostly lack on having ideas most of the time. So if there’s anything you’d like me to do for you or if you have any ideas you’d like to share with me, please lemme know!

But anyway, again,  thank you for following me! ༼ つ ಥ_ಥ ༽つ
