As you might (or might not) know, Aro-spec Awareness Week will be from 19th till 25th February this year - less than a week from now!
I really wanted to do something for Aro-spec week this year, but sadly it’s still exam season here, so I barely have any time for tumblr. Since Aro-spec Week is only once a year I didn’t want to miss it completely, though - and this is where you come in.
If you want to celebrate Aro-spec Week 2017 on this blog, share your ideas/thoughts/art/puns/… with me!
I’ve drawn up a quick plan for posts (though this isn’t written in stone, so if you have any suggestions for other themes or have a post that doesn’t fit the theme of the day, please submit anyway):
Sunday, 19th February: Aro-spec headcanons! You know that one character who is totally aro-spec? The one you could relate to immediately or read that one fanfic of and headcanoned them as aro-spec ever since? Whether you have drawings, stories or just write the character’s name (and series/movie/book) in my submission box, it will be highly appreciated!
Monday, 20th February: Aro-spec Art Day Quick aro doodles and art of your favourite character or the aro flag or whatever you can think of! Or do you have a favourite piece of aro-spec art on tumblr? Tag me and I’ll reblog it!
Tuesday, 21st February: How did you find out you were aro-spec? Whether there was one specific event you can recall perfectly or many small moments that still sometimes make you realize that you’re way too aro-spec for this sh*t - share them here!
Wednesday, 22nd February: What I like about the a-spec community What is says in the title - what do you like about the aro-spec community? The chatrooms, the puns, this very blog? ;) (Okay, I was just kidding with that last one, but really - submit away:D)
Thursday, 23rd February: Intersectionality Aro-spec and asexual, bisexual, heterosexual, homosexual, pansexual…? Tell me about your struggles or experiences, share art, jokes, whatever!
Friday: 24th February: Aro-spec recommendations A book/tv show/movie with an aro-spec character? Your favourite aro fanfic? A cool playlist? Share your recommendations here!
Saturday, 25th February: Aro Jokes and Puns Everyone knows we have the best jokes - of course this had to be part of aro-spec week!
I’ll try to fill my queue with posts related to these topics, but it would be super awesome if you could share your own ideas etc. - either by submitting something to this blog (whether it’s a page-long rant or two words - I’ll happily take it) or tagging me in your posts so I can reblog them!
The earlier you submit, the more time I have to sort out my queue, so submissions start right now - but if you find/make something on the last day of Aro-spec Week, please submit anyway :) I’ll use the hashtags ‘#arospec17′ and ‘#arospec awareness week’

ALRIGHT! Sooo I'm confused on Remington's relationship status. Is there a thing with him and Anna? Liiikkkkkke what's the story, fam.
xD This is what happens:
So we have Remington and Emilia, they are from the ‘50s, and they are a married couple. Remington dies and after some time he meets Anna. He’s a ghost, Anna can see and hear him (under certain conditions.) Is there a thing between them? Well, not really? They wouldn’t even be able to hold hands because he doesn’t feel anything he touches and no one can feel his touch either… I’m not sure anything would be possible x)
There’s a little summary of my story here [x] and more info about my ocs under my oc tag, so if you’re interested you can check it :)
Because it’s a movie aimed primarily as kids that has awesomely diverse female representation when it comes to personalities, as well as beautiful animation, explains minds and emotions and memories and all that stuff in a way children can easily understand, passes the Bechdel test in like the first ten minutes, and stresses the importance of your own personal mental and emotional health.
This is a movie with a female protagonist (who enjoys both rainbow unicorns and hockey) that tells kids that if they’re feeling out of sorts, if they’re feeling sad or angry or afraid or disgusted, that’s okay. That’s normal. And it’s telling them to speak up, to tell someone, to express what they feel, because bottling up your emotions - putting on a brave face when you really need to cry - only leads to more pain.
Inside Out teaches kids that it’s okay to feel and that is so, so, so important.
I feel like maybe one of the reasons Noct x Luna doesn’t get more love is because maybe people are at some base level rejecting the idea that the arranged marriage could have played a part in their developing emotions.
From the time they first meet, they love each other, but obviously not in a romantic way. They’re children. He’s 8, she’s 12, they’re *both* children. And it’s the only confirmed face-to-face time we know about them having before the game.
But they love each other so much from that time on. They both admire each other deeply and the other becomes a driving force for them. Noctis wants to fulfill his childhood promises to her. Luna as Oracle wants to support her King on his road.
They both know the other is capable of amazing things. And those abilities awe and inspire them to be an even better version of themselves.
These children are never given the luxury of thinking of things in short-term, either. Everything they do, they have to think of in long term. They have to think of effects down the years. They both mature so quickly in a lot of ways. They’re pragmatic by necessity, and their adoration of each other is the only selfish thing they hold onto. Because it’s safe. Because it can only help them in their duties. Because they are the only ones who can relate on an equal field to each other.
That love and adoration grows through the years. As they further mature, as they take on more and more tasks… They have no time to think of things like romance, they have no time to FIND love.
And then they’re promised to each other.
What a relief that must have been, circumstances aside.
As rulers and as those carrying a specific kind of magic, they need to continue their bloodlines. It’s part of their duty, and they both are bound by and PROUD of their duties.
To know that you’ll be with your best friend… Someone who you admire so completely, someone who makes you feel calm when you think their name, someone you know you can rely on, who knows your weaknesses and who supports you, who completes you, who makes you better….
Oh, what a relief.
And then to know it’s coming, their thoughts can shift. They’re allowed. They have that freedom, it’s been given to them, promised to them as they were promised to each other. And so when they think of each other, they can think of a future together. One where they can actually see each other freely, which they had been unable to do with no freedom in sight.
And feelings change and develop into something more.
I am in love with your art style and resistance lance au like I need to know everything about him and that universe and how his relation with keaith and the others progress, have an amazing day!
oh gawwsh thank you, Ok ok I’m working out a few more specific details but the relationships are pretty messy at this point since i don’t have much content for the au (because i am slow) but I’ll do my best to explain. Also be aware I’m really not too concerned about ships with this Au (but I’m not against and I do have some ships I enjoy but interpret as you wish) I just find more interest in other things. Another thing, I don’t want to lean that far from canon personality and relationships.
here are the links to other Resistance Lance stuff:
Keiths relationship w/ Lance: Keith is suspicious of everything he knows little about, Lance is an alien who knows a lot more than he gives to the team and has a past with the galra, he catches on and suspects foul play. He will confront Lance about his blade and they do get in a fight. He still is always standing near him, reacts to the taunts, but in the end they learn to bond and trust each other most like canon.
Shiros relationship with Lance: Shiro has survived as Champion but Lance was involved in that (HOW??? heheheh you’ll find out, comic coming soon). What happened is a blur for Shiro but Lance makes him a bit uneasy because of that involvement causing them to have less bonding moments. Still he learns to care about Lance as a leader and trusts his determination and knowledge. He’s a dad tho and Lance is Lance, what’s in canon is what I’m keeping as base.
Hunks relationship with Lance: Best friends at first sight, Hunk loves Lances energy it makes him feel like he can push past his fears. They trade stories, recipes, jokes, and stuff about their cultures all the time. They have each others backs and trusts each others minds and instincts. So their bond is same just without their history at the Garrison.
Pigdes relationship with Lance: They have that sibling bond however to add to the mix Lance has a tech dependance that gave him his leg and keeps him alive, Pidge nerds over the craftsmanship. Pidge also asks him a LOT of questions about alien stuff but she’s got her main focuses so she’s usually busy. (I’m using female pronouns for the sake of her saying ‘I’m a girl’)
Alluras relationship with Lance: She respects him as a paladin but she is totally thrown off by how different he acts to the altean culture she was raised in that’s where i’m going to make a few assumptions for old altean culture (I assume they were kind of regal adventurers who embrace the concept of fear, strength, universe spirituality, and order) Lance’s altean culture is completely different. It’s a very rough start for them at first but they learn each other’s differences and eventually they connect over the small similarities they find.
Corans relationship with Lance: There’s no doubt Lance has touched a soft spot in Corans heart. He see’s himself in Lance and keeps an eye on him. I think they have conversations about hard things Lance has gone through and Coran helps him. Their differences don’t bother Coran as much (I have this theory that Coran has a history of adventuring across the universe before becoming a king’s advisor and he’s seen a crap load of stuff so he’s unbothered by Lance being different)
More about Lance: I thought it was a cool idea if Lance was altean but not because that would make him a pretty prince (he already is one matey) but I thought it could open the Voltron Universe a bit more since the the beginning of Voltron the only people had that knowledge of the galra had memory loss, are from 10,000 years ago OR are super secretive(Marmorans). At the same time Lances nature as an adventurer and being a people person can be shown off. He’s shown the skill and capability to gain alien allies, lead as a friend, and follow as a ally.
He’s a bit secretive not only about his past and his feelings but Keith’s past as well. He guessed there was a connection to the Blade of Marmora the moment he saw the blade. He’s survived this long fighting against the galra because he doesn’t trust anyone with certain information. This will cause a problem with Voltron at first, but Coran will eventually teach him a way to keep valued secrets safe. One day he may trust someone with this information but it’s not going to end well.
Over the past few days I’ve talked about how it’s going to be impossible to find things for Into the Badlands in tags like #sunny or #veil, which are often filled with things that have nothing to do with the show, or even the general show tag #into the badlands, which includes random text posts about the show that make it difficult to wade through to find meta, edits, etc. I’m going to propose a new tagging system so this blog and fans can track specific character tags and find legitimate posts for Into the Badlands.
A couple other fandoms have done this (x) (x) and it works really well for them. I thought maybe we could follow suit.
#itbedit - for gifsets, picspams, or any edits
#itbamc - for meta, commentary, fan talks, and so on
#itbcast - for edits of any cast member
To make it easy to track character tags (things like #jade or #sunny are all but useless), I thought we’d just add itb in front of the name. These tags would be for anything pertaining to that particular character, like edits, meta, fanfiction, etc.
and so on for any other character
This part was kinda difficult, because some fandoms like combination names for ship tags, but I think to avoid confusion we should use tags like #sunnyveil. These tags will be for edits, meta, fanfiction, etc.
The following list are names that come to mind now, but I’ll add more when they become present, or if you have any ships you’d like to see added, just send me an ask.
and so on for any other ships
Of course everyone is free to tag things however they want, but this system would make it much easier for fans to find exactly what they are looking for. My ask box is always open for suggestions. If you like this idea, please reblog and spread the word!
“”””””terfs””””””” are supposed to be the mean/evil ones but like, trans activists/libfems are the ones who seem to be on the offense more… I just went to the “trans positivity” tag and it was all nice things about trans people (which is as it’s supposed to be, I don’t think trashing people is any way to have a disagreement and people really freaking deserve a nice, positive space in this crazy world) but then I go to the “radfem positivity” tag and the vast majority is trans activists/libfems aggressively pushing their own agenda or saying some frankly violent things towards other women (and often lesbians). I get it, you (trans activists/libfems) think we are satan incarnate, but maybe take a sec to realize that we are all in fact human and we’re all just trying to do what we think is right in the world. I have seen so much shit slung at me (on past accounts and irl) for being a biological female who is attracted solely to biological females, or for wanting space to be around people who share what I uniquely experience as a biological female in this world. I get that there are people who might read this and be angry with me for tying to say “biological female” but I’m just so tired, what else can I identify myself as? I’m sure as hell not going to call myself a “birther” or “bleeder” or “uterus bearer”, that’s some Handmaid’s Tale shit and I won’t stand for it. Literally none of the radical feminists I have met want trans people dead or harmed, and I have met some of the biggest baddies out there, my friends have their own tumblr tags. We just want to be able to have our own spaces when we need them (just like you should be able to have your own spaces), I don’t want people coming at me tying to shame me for my innate sexuality (I have family for that, thanks), I don’t want all the words that describe my physical reality to be taken away because I know that once I and other biological women can’t define ourselves, that is when we fall. That is when the likes of Trump win, because we don’t even have words for ourselves to rally behind and we can’t fight. He’s already coming for us.
That is the real enemy, that is who we should be fighting (at least in the US). We have this administration that is off the freakin rails and is coming to get us all, but we’re too busy buying into their game and coming for each other to do anything. Honestly, radfems don’t have that much pull with politics. People on here act like our criticism of the entire system of gender is the reason trans people are dying and it really, really isn’t. It’s cis men who are killing us all.
This is a day overdue, but I wanted to find the best way that I could word this. I could just leave the issue where it stood, but I want to apologize before I continue on.
I’m sorry for not putting a link to the art that inspired the piece in the actual caption. I really should have so that more people would see the original, rather than putting it in the tags. I see the error now, and this issue won’t happen again.
For more fic of course! Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE all the amazing fluff and smut we’ve been getting from the incredible authors in this fandom. You all are perfect and I love you. But…
I’d love some down and dirty kinky fic. I’m talking gkm-level prompts, people. I want some dark fic, I want some fic so dirty people post it anonymously. I want some more BDSM. Let me see the sides of the samwell crew that we don’t explore. Break away from canon and let’s see some of the nasty. I want some crazy out-of-the-box fic.
Want inspiration? @nsfwzimbits has a FANTASTIC prompt list here with some of the stuff I’m talking about! And if you don’t write but have an idea you’d love to see written, I’m sure you can suggest it to be added!
And I promise I’ll do my best to get on this as a writer too!

( phe, 20, gmt. )
Yeah, because straight people feel they’re broken or there’s something wrong with them because they don’t feel the same as other people
Because straight people don’t know about their sexuality until they’re old (unless they are lucky) because straightness* is barely visible
Because straightness* is seen as symptom of a mentally illness and/or as the result of a mentally illness
[tw sexual abuse] Because straight people are told they’re that way because of (usually sexual) trauma
[tw sexual abuse] Because sexually abused straight people have their straightness* invalidated because of the trauma-> “you have been sexually abused? Oh that explains why you say/think you are straight”
Because straight people lose friendships because friends can’t accept their straightness*
Because straight people only know one or two straight people irl, if they know any
[tw sexual abuse]
Because straight people are afraid of coming out, not only due to fear of rejection but also of being sexually abused because of people who think their straightness* can be fixed with sex
Because straight people are told that “straightness*” isn’t a thing"
Because straight people are told ^^^ and mocked even in supposed safe-spaces for them (ltgb+ community)
Because being straight makes you unhappy because of all the romantic and sexual ideals society tells you you must pursue
Because straight people are invisible
Because straight people are told they haven’t found the right person
Yeah, you have convinced me, aro-ace and straight people are obviously the same
tl;dr:saying that aro-ace people are straight people is bs since the experiences of aro-ace people and straight people are vastly different.
Post data: most of the examples have been experienced by me, an ace gray-aro person,but ace-spec or aro-spec people can also experience these things, regardless of their other orientation, so hetero-romantic aces and hetero-sexual aros are also affected by these things.
straightness*: word used to meant heterosexuality+heteroromanticity, since I also use straight only to refer to heterosexual+heteroromantic people.
as promised, a small walkthrough my art supplies (and my desk in general!) my favourite pencils are: x and x . my favourite erasers are x and x and x
as for watercolours, i use winsor&newton, mostly (i’ve had the large set you can see there for about 11 years now and it’s lasted me this long, and the small travel set is also perfect) and recently was gifted russian lagoda paints from st. petersburg, which are also really nice and very pigmented!
more important than the amount of supplies you have is the amount of sketchbooks you’ve filled! i have over 30 sketchbooks that i’ve filled (you can see some of them here) over the last 6 years–so start drawing!! the earlier you start, the more you’ll improve!
.｡.:*☆ out. i’ve noticed something lately, that’s not really a problem, but that i’d like to address just so everyone’s on the same page. other muns may do things differently, but with my blog, permanent starter calls aren’t the same as active starter calls. permanent starter calls are for me to gauge interest, to see who’s interested in which muses, so that i can feel more comfortable sending memes / plotting / occasionally tagging people in random starters. active starter calls are where you can expect to ( usually, and depending to adherence to my rules ) receive a starter from the muse(s) of your choice! people who request starters through permanent starter calls WILL NOT receive a starter unless they like and reply to an active starter call.
Aaaahhhhhhhh anon that’s too nice of you to saaaayyy, honestly~! //////////
I’m pretty like…not good with words and stuff but I can at least say I’m happy people seem to like seeing stuff on my blog….~ If it can make them happy in any way, then that’s the best I could hope for, as sappy as it sounds ^^ ///////////
