Alright, so we’re gonna play a new song. Kinda going to the cartoon narrative of this whole thing. 2D felt maybe he was under-represented on Humanz a bit. It wasn’t a problem, but maybe he was a bit too generous, ya know? So he thought he’d do a song all by himself and make a video, just with him. Not tell anyone else, not tell Murdoc, a secret……………….. It might be a bit rough around the edges ‘cuz he only wrote it on Monday and made the video on Wednesday and now it’s Thursday so…

Danai and Andy went to chandlers graduation party. His tv parents y'all. I'm so emotional!
This was totally me looking at those pictures:
Like the forces aligned and really gave us a no-zombie AU where Carl graduates from high school and he’s going to UGA and his parents throw him a cute little graduation party and Michonne is all dressed up like the perfect hostess and Rick is such a dad, and Morgan is their neighbor and he stopped by to support and it’s really just the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. I’m so glad they went. 🤗
About 2 weeks ago, Palomacy messaged us asking if we could bring some food to a nice person in our city who saved a pigeon from two cats. They were stalking it on the street and the poor bird could barely fly. Fantails are completely domesticated and unable to survive in the wild, so it either escaped or its owner dumped it outside :(
It turns out that the rescuer lives just down the street from us! I brought Miu over to say hi to our new neighbors and we gave a short lesson on how to care for pigeons. The unnamed bird looked good, but was very light for its size.
We visited again recently, and the beautiful fantail has gained weight and looks more alert. It also has a name now: Turkey! (for obvious reasons)
(I started writing this ages and ages ago in response to a prompt from @ayumichan46 which went: ‘R!Mchanzo and Hanzo asking Mccree about how he lost his eye.’ Lmao as you can see I’m incapable of doing anything the easy way but here it is, at long last)
Hanzo does not need to ask McCree about how he lost his eye to know that he will lie about it.
In the months since he joined up with Deadlock, he’s heard maybe three dozen variations of the tale, one half passed secretively between members during jobs and over meals, the other recounted by McCree himself, either thrown out off-handedly at opportune moments or unpacked in front of firelight, beneath the stars, to a circle of rapt listeners (who have been told the story a hundred times a piece, yet have never heard the same version twice).
Needless to say, Hanzo has his questions about the matter. How could he not, when it comes up in conversation as often as it does? He keeps them to himself, however. It is not his place to pry—especially since McCree has been kind enough to waylay any and all inquiries about the ninja’s own abominable body. That does not keep Hanzo’s curiosity from mounting with every passing day, if only because he has learned everything there is to know about each and every one of Deadlock’s members—except for Jesse McCree.
Hey I was wondering if you'd consider posting a tutorial for your colour palette gifs on how you get the backgrounds exactly the same on different scenes? I'm really bad at it and your gifs are gorgeous
Awww I’m so glad that you like them, it means a lot much to me!! I’ll just make a quick tutorial because I’m currently really busy and I’m also really bad at explaining things.
FINALLY. After all that work and pricked fingers and gold trim, I finally finished Spring Robin in time for the con next weekend. Still have to touch up the gold trim near the edges, but that’s a super easy fix. Hopefully, I’ll see some people at Raleigh Supercon next week! Special special thank you/shout-out goes to the lovely @knightofiris for allowing me to use her Spring!Robin design <3 I hope you like it as much as I loved putting it together!
My sister and I went on an edible plant walk today at this little organic farm and it was so cute! She totally let us raid her yard and garden (although we only took a little sample of some) but everyone was so just sweet 🙊🌻
This isn't an art request or anything, but do you even think about how much All Might must like rabbits to have hair like that? Imagine baby Toshi cuddling his pet bunny he loves with all his heart. I think about this constantly and wondered your thoughts on the matter! Anyway, you're art is incredible!! I love your lines and the colours you use! And your bff Erase & Mic gave me life! I'm weak for polar-opposites-yet-best-friends duos, thank you so much for sharing your fantastic art with us!!
idk about real bunnies but i think all mights favourite bunny is deku
HOP HOP HOP BUNNY HOP
AS FOR THE COMPLIMENTS:
thank you so much!!! ;V; i agree wholeheartedly on opposite duos, I LOVE THEM TOO, AND I AM GLAD WE HAVE MIC AND AIZAWA
What's your opinion on people yelling over whitewashing allura? I know ppl may see her as a poc but then again shes an literal alien isn't she, i unno what do u think, not that I'm saying lets 'whitewash' her or w/e but
Well, you gave away your opinion so easily. I already know exactly what you think. See, when you try to trivialize the issue by using words like “yelling” you are trying to get the people who talk about this because they are bothered by it, to look unreasonable. Nobody’s yelling. We discuss things because they are important and reflect the world we live in.
So I’m not quite sure what you were wanting me to say, but I’m so glad you asked because this is what I study. Literary and rhetorical analysis is my jam, so let’s analyze this issue, hm?
In the context of the show, Allura isn’t black. She’s from another planet with a completely different culture where skin color may not even be a factor in society like it is on earth. Aliens certainly don’t abide by human rules and culture, which is actually a big problem I have with a lot of underdeveloped sci-fi, including Voltron. Humanoid aliens are boring.
But whenever we analyze anything fiction, we do so from our human perspective. This is where all these people claiming that “fiction and reality are totally separate and never interconnect” are so, so wrong. Because fiction exists only in our reality. All of our fiction was written by humans on earth that belonged to different cultures spanning across various times. You have to take that into consideration when consuming anything fictional. Because fiction only exists in our reality.
And fiction can be useful. We can use it to diagnose problems in our society, or get a glimpse of mindsets of the past. We can see firsthand prejudices and learn from different cultures, not just by what’s written, but how it was written and why.
So when we consume the fictional reality of Voltron, we do so from our own Earthly perspective. While in the show’s reality, Allura is not black because her fictional alien species has no mention of the concept of it, in our world she is. And since we are all human who consume the fictional media of Voltron on earth, that is the only way we can interpret her. Allura is black to us, because that’s all we know. So while in her own fictional universe, Allura may not be familiar with earthen black culture, she becomes a part of our black culture on earth in our reality.
This concept is one that anybody who studies the art of storytelling–past and present–understands. And this has such interesting potential and would get infinitely more complicated if we indeed did meet other sentient life and shared stories with them, sparking a whole plethora of alternate realities to explore fictional and otherwise, but I digress.
Therefore, whitewashing Allura is wrong, even as an alien. Because in our human experience living in the time we do now, we have no other way of interpreting Allura than as a black woman. Whitewashing her is taking that away from the real black women who find representation in her.
Talking about things like this are not trivial, and people who do are not being unreasonable. Trying to dismiss this kind of discussion as pointless “yelling” is actually a symptom of racism in itself
I’m so glad BBC didn’t disappoint because if they gave us a little peck or another interrupted kiss I think I would have gone mad! It was passionate and patsy threw all her concerns out the window and just kissed her in the street - the best character development of the century
I am here in awe because you literally gave us what all of us wanted (damien getting the shit beat out of him) in literally the only way that would destroy us (caleb losing control of his anger). It is brilliant and I hate you and I love you. It's 2am and I'm crying.
I’m so glad you phrased it that way because that’s exactly what I was going for - maximum suffering at all times (I’m mostly kidding - I don’t think suffering for suffering’s sake is good storytelling but I do believe that life is painful, sometimes in way’s you least expect and that’s a more nuanced conversation for another time).
I typed a whole thing out about this particular plot point and how long it’s been in the works, but I think I’m gonna save it for after the finale. We’re definitely not done talking about that confrontation.
