I realized pages and pages ago that I’ve been drawing Jack’s hair aggressively wrong because I haven’t been using any references through this whole thing, so I’ve just been waiting for an opportunity to have him ruffle his hair and fix it.

Someone was asking what the timeline on this was supposed to be, I’m gonna say… like…. vaguely 20+ years back. Post SEP, post robots attacking, post Overwatch forming, probably pre-ish Jack getting bumped to Strike Commander or a least early enough on he hasn’t let the burden of responsibility crush out his youthful exuberance yet. McCree probably shouldn’t be in the picture yet but I thought it was funnier for him to be there. I don’t blame myself for not keeping the timeline super crisp when Blizzard doesn’t either.

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!

Writing, Neil Gaiman, and Kon Satoshi

I almost gave up writing altogether after reading Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman.

I didn’t read it as it was coming out in comics, but later, when it was published in collected volumes.

It was too perfect. Too complete. It seemed like it had sprung fully-formed from Gaiman’s head, and he had to spend years waiting for artists to catch up.

It was overwhelming. Unattainable.

I wasn’t reading the book’s post-scripts, though, because I wanted to avoid potential spoilers. I wanted to experience the material, not the author dissecting it.

I did read them on a second pass. There’s a story on Dream Country, the third volume, about a writer keeping a muse captive so she can give him ideas. It’s a piece with characters that tie into Morpheus’ past and who will come up again, woven into the larger narrative. The book also contains a post-script on how the story came about, where Gaiman states it was at first about a succubus, before moving on to talk about his process for working with the artist.

My eyes kept moving forward, brain storing words from the original script, but my consciousness had taken a step back.

Wait, back up, what was that character again? 
Who?
Calliope.
Originally a succubus, replies brain, let me keep going here.

Yes, stupid me. I had assumed Sandman had been gestating inside Gaiman from the start, waiting for an opportunity for the entire story to burst out. He didn’t transcribe a long epic he had already come up with. He wasn’t born with the tale. He worked at it for years, sometimes throwing away material and replacing it with things that fit better. Like a normal human being.

I keep making the same mistake. I wrote about a similar mental bug when talking about Kon Satoshi and Dream Fossil.

We only see the finished product. We don’t see the author sitting down at the typewriter and bleeding.

It’s all work. Some people have more potential and have it easier, others have to work harder at it, but in the end it’s only work. If you want a chance to get better at it, you should treat it as such.

This Friday (31st March) is Trans Day of Visibility

[This post refers to TDoV 2017; other years will have TDoV on a different day of the week]

It’s that time of year again! That awesome day where trans people share their selfies and stories. It’s one of the two largest trans advocacy days, the other being Trans Day of Remembrance (20th November). That day is dedicated to mourning and solemnity, while this day is a day to celebrate being alive! Like last year, I’m not sure of the absolute official hashtag, so I’m guessing there’ll be a variety in use, such as: #tdov #transdayofvisibility #trans day of visibility #trans visibility #trans pride #transresistance #trans resistance

This day has been recognised since 2009 and is increasing in popularity and support each year, but there’s still a long way to go in spreading the word. Visibility is something that the trans community often has to struggle for, so this is our time to step out of the shadows, take pride in who we are, and show the world that we exist and we’re here to stay.

If you are trans

This is your day. No matter your gender - whether you’re male, female, or any nonbinary gender - anyone who isn’t cis (ie. whose gender is different from the gender they were assigned at birth) can participate. This is a great opportunity to get involved in the community and be visible. If you’re comfortable, post a selfie. Share your story. This is your time to be proud of who you are! It can get hard and lonely sometimes, but there’s a whole community here who have your back.

If you are not trans

Please also get involved - don’t leave this day just up to us. Today is a day for you to support and listen to the trans community. Show us some love by reblogging some selfies and reading some stories, whether you browse through the tags listed above or stick to your mutuals. Now is a perfect opportunity to learn about our wonderful community and to look at some beautiful people. It’s a win-win, really.

Above all, I hope everyone has a fantastic TDoV! Have fun and keep it positive.

WISF TURNS FOUR! 🎂

It’s incredible to think that 4 years ago I posted my first match on here with no expectations whatsoever, and now in one week my very first exhibition “Incontri d’Arte” will be inaugurated at the Timken Museum of Art in San Diego, California!!!

Here are some of my favourite matches from the past year, and at the end one of the matches I’ve created for the Timken. Can’t wait for you guys to see all the rest, I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to showcase my creative vision in such a great place!

Thank you all so much for following and supporting me always ♡

ok, this is the part where i get witchy because Daniel Flameo might not believe in the cards but goddamnit I do, and those cards had some shit to say*. mainstream Phils won’t tell you but your friendly neighborhood witch will!

The Chariot (Dan’s past), momentum, determination, self-discipline, victory
Ok, so this is pretty obvious, TATINOF/TABINOF and maybe DAPGO. I’d also argue that it could represent Dan’s career in general: making a job out of being a person on the internet isn’t easy (even affording for Dan’s privilege) and as much as we shittalk Dan (and as much as he does himself) it’s a job that requires a certain type of motivation and determination. As part of the Major Arcana, the card also represents life changes and events that are a Big Deal, rather than day to day choices.

Death (Dan’s present), transformation, closure, regeneration
Oh my god, everyone let go of the idea that Death is a “bad” card. There’s no such thing as a bad card. Anyway, we know that this is a resting year for them. TABINOF/TATINOF is over. The biggest project, possibly of his life thus far, is over and now…on to the next! This is the coolest thing about Death for me. It’s not just death for the sake of dying, its Death in order for something new to be born and grow. Maybe this is whatever mysterious goings-on were happening in February/March? Maybe it’s whatever the hell Dan was doing in the Bahamas for two hours. There are other projects in Dan’s (and probably Phil’s) future and they’re gonna be a Big Deal, too. Now I say “projects” and imply that these are work projects, but there’s another Big Deal that this closure/transformation might be referring to. 

Ace of Wands (Dan’s future), energy, inspiration, sexuality, self-image
“Now is your time to be courageous”. Let’s cast our eyes to Dan’s instagram, shall we? Shall we talk about this glittery nailed, bejeweled hatted soft boye? Shall we talk about the newly freed knee? The (terrible) Granny shirt? Can we talk about Signapore (all of it)? Listen, I’m just talkin’ about what I’m talkin’ about, but I think we’ve been seeing, and are going to continue to see a Dan that’s more self-assured about his gender expression and yeah, his sexuality. At the end of 2017-2018, we’re all gonna be like No Homo Howell, who? Aces are all about potential and opportunity. Dan, and we as his audience, is at the beginning of a fucking delightful adventure and I can’t wait to cheer him on.


*My philosophy on tarot cards is more that they’re thinking tools than ~fortune telling and since I’m privvy to only a very small part of Dan’s life obvi this is just my interpretation. But OH GIRL. The cards don’t care about your lil video, Phil! The cards are like “let me tell you about yourself”.

A Reminder for Tetsuya Normura!

Hey buddy, pal, old sport…It’s been some time since we’ve last heard from you! Now I don’t know if you remember, and no big deal if you don’t, but last Summer, about a year ago, yes right before E3 there was just a small announcement…

Ah yes, it should be coming back to you now…hopefully. Well, I’m afraid I have some bad news for you buddy…that window of opportunity is soon coming to a close. In fact, you only have less than 2 weeks to deliver on this promise, as Winter officially ends on March 21st. So put on your big Sora shoes and get to making us a new trailer because there is no way in hell this fandom can wait until E3 2017 for more footage.

Man Face Monday - Beautiful Birthday Mayor Face

Hey Face Lovers! 

So, I feel a bit in the dog house because I didn’t post a Washboard Wednesday last week. I got behind the eight-ball with some work projects. But rest assured, this Wednesday is already in process. 

Who else is excited for the finale this week? Last weeks positive Olicity vibes were just the right note I needed to feel like next season will find things right with the world again (even if there are a few more bumps in the road). I cannot wait to see how things sort out with Adrian Chase. Lots of opportunity for epic feels in terms of symmetry with the pilot. I have speculated in another post with respect to how I think things could end up, if the writers don’t want to let me down, that is! 

Let’s get busy with some face, shall we? Because Oliver Queen looked as scrumptious as his birthday cake last week. 

First, this gorgeous smile appeared because he might have a date. 

Oh, the pillow mountains and the leather jacket and the hair and the eyes…

Another smile because he was adoring at that moment.

Some badass black and white sexiness here. 

Someone else has commented on this pose. Oliver Queen, after everything he has been through, clasping his heart at this moment is a fascinating move that I hope gets asked about at a future HVFF panel. Is he relieved because he thought something happened to Felicity up until then? What he surprised by her appearance pointing a gun? Or is this a reference to the flashback in some way - to Kovar sticking a needle into that very spot? I am dying to know. In any case…the man is beautiful, the jacket is HOT. 

Okay, I am working on my gifmaking capabilities again. Here’s an early experiment because I adore that smile we see so rarely from Oliver Queen. I’ll keep at it!

Dimple. Fucking dimple. And eyelashes. Gaah.

And there we have it, gorgeous people! This dude had one handsome birthday. I hope this sets your week off on the right foot! Lots more pretty to come. 

If you would like to be removed or added to this list for Washboard Wednesday, Man Face Monday, and occasional other day posts of pretty, please let me know. I really hope the tags work this week. I know it’s spotty. Once again, please reblog if you think your followers will enjoy.

Craiglist (or whatever similar site) Masterpost

I finally found this really informative post, been searching this for weeks. This is from an awesome longtime SB with really great advice posts @itsnecolbitch, whom already deactivated her account few months ago. Enjoy!!


Are you ready to give craigslist a try? Here are some ads that I have used in the past that worked for me. Pick any of them to choose from.

1. Undeniable Moments- (Insert City Here)


Would you like for me to spice up your night? Lets go out to dinner and lets have a great time. I have went on a few dates but I felt not only something was missing but also my time being wasted. Have you ever felt that way before? Would you like to meet a woman who is exciting and that you hit it off with mutually?

I would like to be spoiled.

2. It’s Never Too Late For Happy Hour- (Insert City Here)


You’re in the middle of a hectic project and you would like to go out for an evening or two. You are in fear of going alone. You don’t have to be afraid anymore as this is when I come to the picture. Your personal social butterfly is here to rescue you. Do you accept this challenge?

3. 777, Jackpot- (Insert City Here)


I am an attractive young lady. My goal is to meet a gentleman and I just hope that chivalry still exists. He must be well traveled as i love to talk about different destinations. I am interested in art, golf, and trying the best restaurants that (insert city) has to offer.

What you’ll learn about me is that I am an elegant individual with a sense of style.

Please be at least 35-55, as I prefer my men older.


4. Lonely Lunches & Dull Dinners- (Insert City Here)

I enjoy to be your oasis, you can forget the issues of everyday life in. I will be happy to experience times of adventure with you, and discover new worlds with you. When we are together, I’ll make you the center of your universe. I will be devoted to satisfying your desires. Just let the rhythm flow through your mind, body and spirit.


I’m not opposed to refreshing yet exciting experiences that make me grow as a person and evolve my professional possibilities. My primary goal is to find a gentleman who is sincere, honest and charitable.


5. Fountain Of Youth- (Insert City Here)

My ideal gentleman is someone who is financially secure as well as intelligent, older and knows how to keep a woman happy. If you are interested in leading more about this exciting opportunity let’s go out for drinks.

6. Discrete Daddy Wanted- (Insert City Here)

A little bit about myself, I am nice, have a bubbly personality, not to mention, I am a spicy, sassy, sweet, sexy petite mixed creature. I would like to be taken care of. Does it sound like you? If so, please email me. Gracias!

7. Establish An Agreement- (Insert City Here)

I enjoy the company of ambitious, successful, gentlemen. I thrive when expectations are clear and well defined in the beginning letting the rest take care of itself as it all unfolds.


I am seeking a gentleman who desires the benefits of companionship, without the entanglements of a traditional relationship. I would like to be spoiled and pampered.


8. The Ambiance- (Insert City Here)

People tell me I have an exotic look. Natural beauty by day, and dressed to the nines at night. I love the finest things life has to offer and will not settle for less. I am ready for fun and ultimately looking for one person to share my life with. I am attracted to powerful men. Honesty and loyalty are very important to me. I love black tie events, the opera, movies, both domestic and international travel, exotic/luxury cars, golfing, skiing and shopping. I believe in chivalry, romance, and sensuality.

I know what I want and when I find it, I will be off the market.


I spend my free time searching for the man of my dreams. He is worldly, educated, classy, fun, and sexy. A man that enjoys taking care of himself and the woman he is crazy about. A man that loves to travel, both planned and spontaneous.

9. Intelligence Is The Ultimate Aphrodisiac- (Insert City Here)


Don’t open the bottle of wine just yet. Just wait. Aren’t you missing something? No, I’m not talking about the appetizers or the main dish. You are missing, me.


My world is rich and diverse. My standards are high. I reserve the right to say no to invitations when appropriate.

I am most definitely not opposed to seeking an arrangement with a gentleman who is diplomatic, refined, exceptional and a philanthropic. You be will be impressed with my confidence along with my presence. I can’t wait to meet you.

10. Dinner With A Beautiful Woman- (Insert City Here)


I am a woman who enjoys having a man truly be a man and a provider. I like spending my time with a mature individual who knows how to treat a woman, and he knows how to make the most of each moment we spend together.

I am seeking a successful man who is interested in exploring a relationship that is mutually beneficial. I want to meet an individual who is open to new things and enjoying quality time.


After you have posted your ad, it’s time to play the waiting game.

You’ve got a response! What’s next? If it sounds intriguing, you can either do two things:

1. Send a personalized email about yourself and what you are looking for OR you can use my example spam message but of course you would have to reword it and it goes like this:

“Thank you so much for responding to my ad. I would love to get to know you better and hopefully you’ll give me the opportunity to do so. I hope you don’t mind my age as I am _____ years old, however I do consider myself as a young face with an old soul, therefore, I am comfortable in any setting. If you don’t mind me asking what exactly is your occupation because I do consider myself as an entrepreneur. I can’t wait to hear back from you.”

After you send that and he replies again, that means you are in there for scheduling a date. Remember to agree to meet at a public place.


Bonus tips: You are allowed to post at least 5 ads a day, so please post, never feel discouraged when they flag it.


1. Be very firm when they ask you what exactly you are looking for. When they ask, do not be shy. Tell him exactly this: At this time, I am looking for a gentleman who isn’t opposed to exploring a relationship that is rather mutually beneficial to as I have done something like this before and the experience was great to where I would like to try again. If he doesn’t know what that means, do not delete his email. Explain to him that in other words you are seeking a sugar daddy/sugar baby arrangement.


Good luck ladies!

Sidgeno Mermaid AU anon fic

<< [Chapter 2/?] >>

It’s not until the morning when he’s looking over the pictures again when he notices the same figure in the water that he saw the night before.

The diner in town opens at five.

Geno gets there at 5:30 and rolls his eyes at how chipper the waiter sounds when he tells him to “take a seat wherever you like, I’ll be right with ya.”

His name tag says Jake and he doesn’t bat an eye at his sullen look when he pour his coffee and puts down the menu.

He’s young, fresh out of high school, maybe, and he doesn’t look like he knows who Geno is at all.

Geno’s already made up his mind to tip him very well.

“You’re the one that moved into that shack down by the beach, aren’t you?”

He coughs as the coffee goes down the wrong way. It burns his tongue.

“How you know?”

“This is a tiny, little island. Everyone knows everything. Is it haunted?”

“I’m Geno and it’s not haunted,” he grumbles. “Not a shack.”

“The walls are falling in on themselves and it looks haunted.”
