i'm-all-of-them-at-the-same-time

a few thing i have learned from working at pizza hut for only two days

• the cash register will attack you
• people do not know how to read out their phone numbers (ie. saying all ten numbers in under a second, i’m not a super human, can you repeat that ×4)
• hawaiian pizza costs more than pizza with pineapple and ham (they are made the exact same way, bud)
• stoners, give them time to order
• “uhm uhhh hmmmm can i get uuuuuhhhhhhhhh–”
• “please hold for one second thanks” “this woman wants 120 wings in the next ten minutes what the fuck”
• entering credit card numbers over the phone is so dumb just pay cash please
• “please hold ma'am–” “ADAM HOW DO COUPONS WORK????”
• i hate pizza already

in conclusion, i love my coworkers already, they say i fit in perfectly

A guide to being a vocal citizen

For people wondering how to take action post-election of a racist demagogue (pulled from Twitter and cleaned up):

Make a spreadsheet or a file for your representatives with names, addresses to their offices, phone numbers, and contact forms. Put everyone there. Make a note in your calendar app to check in on issues once a month.

Pay attention to news. If you get angry, upset, or worried, seek support from friends but ALSO shoot these reps an email, too. Be courteous but firm and blunt. It’s a numbers game. Often we remain invisible because we don’t go to events and rallies and can’t be physically present. But we can attach our names to emails, we can write letters, we can be vocal. We don’t have to be invisible.

You can do this with your national reps, state reps, and local reps. If someone reps you anywhere, note them. Open a line and revisit it. It’s hard work and slow. One email at a time. One letter at a time. One call at a time. Emails are easy these days, so splurge every few months on a stamp and send a letter if you can. Put your humanity in front of these people. Flout it. Some won’t care, but others will. Change ONE mind and results can cascade.

Rural areas are bubbles full of bigotry and now it’s newly revealed. But we white people who live here have the clout and power! We can speak up when our reps say terrible things, and do terrible things, and vote terrible ways. We can go “I am disappointed in you.” It’s work, but as we’ve seen the last six months, it’s time for us to do that work. If someone goes “who are your reps” you gotta know. If you don’t know and you’re mad about this election, it’s time to create that file and keep it with you and use it.

The time for social media rants only is over. Or, do those, but maybe pull those threads out into a paragraph and send them to your reps. And don’t ONLY email or contact when things go badly. Also reach out when things go right. Even if they voted AGAINST something. Treat them like you would want to be treated if you were wrong or mistaken. But we’ve gotta reach out and let them know we’re here.

Anyway, I know this is hard work. If you need help collecting your reps, give me a ping via DM and I’ll help you get started.

Humans were so circular; they lived the same slow cycles of joy and misery over and over, never learning. Every lesson in the universe had to be taught billions of times, and it never stuck.

Maybe it was good that the world forgot every lesson, every good and bad memory, every triumph and failure, all of it dying with each generation. Perhaps this cultural amnesia spared them all. Perhaps if they remembered everything, hope would die instead.

Dating, Start!

There wasn’t enough content of my ot3, so I made some

I imagine after they reach the surface, both sans’s relationship with toriel and grillby develop at the same time, until he realizes he’s sorta kinda dating both of them now whoops???  But grillby and toriel get along really well anyways, so they’re happy to hang out all the time and go on dates together and take up all the room on the bed so sans is trapped in an inescapable but very comfortable fire/skeleton/goat sandwich.  It’s all very good and sometimes in small moments like this sans can hardly believe these two amazing people even want to be part of his life.

Bonus sort of process pic at the bottom?  I tried shading in monochrome then overlaying color on top of it, rather than taking the time to individually select all my colors.  I wouldn’t say it saved me time but it did make my colors look more unified.

All’s fair in friendship and espionage.

Crossover: Super Mario X Pokémon

No one knows why, but one day, Pokémon were found everywhere in the Mushroom Kingdom. The Koopa Troop, wasting no time, caught a bunch of them while Bowser built a League and kidnapped Princess Peach afterwards. After receiving a Pikachu and Pokédex from Professor E. Gadd, Mario or Luigi must collect eight keys to enter Bowser’s Castle and save the princess, while Wario or Waluigi tries to do the same.

Pros of being an artist: Draw your faves Kissing.

Cons of being an artist: be Sad due to the Astounding Lack of Kisses in Canon.

i’m a straight up hoe for miss peregrine finding out the older kids are in same sex relationships and being hella supportive and loving despite the time period and maybe even having known before they told her or each other about their feelings and she sort of guides them to each other because she loves them and wants them to be happy and when they go out she’s all momlike and tells them to be home for reset and just end my life.

A Patater soulmate AU: Kent and Tater meet for the first time at an international hockey competition in 2010. The moment Tater lands in the same country Kent knows it: He’s here. My soulmate is here. 

They’re drawn together like lodestones, ecstatic with the joy of finding each other.

There’s just one problem: They speak six languages between them, but not a single one in common.

(Note: kinda angsty, brief gore at the beginning, mention of drug overdose, background canon-compliant Pimms, unflattering descriptions of Saskatchewan)

despite what you’ve been told

part one of maybe 3 or 4?? unbeta’d and unfinished at this point, will put on ao3 later when it’s polished and pretty as vitya in a flower crown ok? ok lets wreck this


He repeats the name Yuuri Katsuki in his head five times, only moving his mouth with the sound on the fifth, and that’s the most memorization he can do in the minute before all of the lights in the room and the crowd of mildly alarmed onlookers become indistinct blurs.

Victor has had a few drinks and found himself on the dance floor of a Grand Prix gala more than once.  Has tumbled into someone’s arms within minutes of meeting them more than once.  Has now won the Grand Prix itself more than once–five times, exactly, not that he’s counting (he definitely is counting, but not at this precise moment.)

He’s never been this charmed.

Look how quickly Credence begins to trust Newt. Imagine how hard it must have been for him to do that. Here he’s been dealing with another wizard who acted like his friend, like he wanted Credence. For the first time in his life, Credence felt wanted, and it all blew up in his face. And now here’s this new wizard, telling him the same thing, that he can help, that he wants to help, and somehow Credence finds it in him to decide that yes, he can trust this person.

It’s strange to realize, but Credence is actually the most optimistic person in the whole movie. Because no matter how much he’s whipped and manipulated and used, he’s ready to trust. Even though he doesn’t fit our mental image of an “optimistic” person–bubbly, full of sunshine, probably dancing through a field of flowers–Credence is undeniably optimistic in the true sense of the word: constantly looking for light in the darkness. 

survivors of any kind of abuse deserve a fucking medal just for being alive while their abusers are out there, alive with them. It’s the hardest fucking thing to exist when you know the one that hurt you is existing at the same time, living and breathing on the same planet as you. I understand that pain, and I have nothing but love for y'all.

I don’t understand where this fandom mentality comes from that everyone has to like all the characters within a book/series/movie? And people start fighting you if you don’t like one character to the same extent as they do?

Like, be happy that people enjoy their favourite character (or ship). That they are so inspired by them that they write fanfic, draw fanart or develop headcanons for them. They share their love and you can do the same with your favourite characters - that’s the point of fandom.

But attacking other fans because they don’t include every single character for reasons that they are entirely their own? It doesn’t matter if you agree or not. Everyone has preferences and they are allowed to have them.

Seriously, since “Winter” was released, this fandom has become a minefield.
And I don’t mean that the character of Winter changed it, but it’s the tone of the discussions. It’s not so much about respectful, informative discussions anymore. It’s gotten nasty with a few people insulting and bullying other fans for their preferences with a self-righteousness that is seriously uncalled for.

Because now, if you don’t include a certain character, you are called out for whatever inane reason. I once got the question once why I didn’t include a certain ship for a story idea I had. Why is that any of their concern? It’s my story idea, either you like it or not but I’m not playing character bingo and include everyone just because the fandom thinks I have to because they are in the original story. That’s what fanfic is for, to expand on the characters you love, maybe all of them or just one of them, but that isn’t anyone’s business. If I see a story tagged with Character X, I’m not asking the author, “hey, where’s Character Y?” That story isn’t for me, so I move on to stories that are.

Because here’s the thing: No one owes you anything.

No one has to write a fic you enjoy.

No one has to draw a fanart that you can reblog.

No one has to spend their time of the day on characters they don’t like just because they feel pressured to do so.

But: Everyone deserves respect. Or, at least, just because someone has a different opinion, it doesn’t give you the right to insult them. Opinions are not facts.

You don’t have to agree with someone but it’s not too much to ask to treat them with a minimum of respect. Especially over something as personal and random as favourite characters/ships.

For next year, I do hope we leave this kind of mentality behind us, so people can resume creating content they enjoy for people who appreciate it, without being attacked for not doing it as some people might see fit. I’m not naive, I know there will always be drama and shipper wars or whatever. But this year, it was no fun being in the TLC fandom. And I say this especially in regard to the TLC shipweeks.

The creators of shipweeks are putting a lot of effort into it. The fans are putting a lot of effort into their work, too. So, if you are not happy that your character/ship/brotp isn’t as included as much as you would like, create your own content. Spread the love. But respect other people’s choices.

And for every other fan: Just have lots of fun with TLC, with your favourite characters and ships and don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t allowed to.

So…um…merry chirstmas? lol

I’m so late omg…

But I really hope all of you had very nice and happy holidays. ♥

The son family sure had! Enjoying the christmas market and it’s delicious treats. I made all their scarfs red because I like the idea that Chichi made them all matching ones from the same wool. x3

I love how Chichi is looking at Goku (she is so cute ♥) so I put a close up in for more details.

Oh btw I looked at the image from my phone and it looked overly saturated but it looks fine on my PC. So if the saturation seems off to you could you tell me? Then it might be some wrong settings on my PC screen. Ty ♥

I’m unbelievably happy about this whole episode, but I’m so,so happy for Michelle and Maureen. 

It was so nice to see Michelle coming in terms of enjoying things and being happy. Even if everyone else is doing the same things, even if they don’t *understand* it, even if they do and perceive it in different ways, even if it passes through standardization and seems fake and distant, and for that it’s all confusing and frustrating to her. She has come to terms with enjoyting it all and having her unique experiences, and I’m so happy for that. 

And Maureen. I’m so happy she’s not mad anymore, and she’s valuing herself and her well-being, and being truly satisfied with it all. Despite never really feeling happiness truly before, despite always feeling bothered by other people and their actions towards her, she has come come to terms with everything that happened, forgiven everyone and is truly satisfied. 

And they are so TOGETHER, they did their toasts together,  they helped each other get to this point… and they are SUCH A CUTE COUPLE. They never abandoned their general characteristics, even with the changes, and it’s just so endearing to see them agree and pick on each other. It’s so cool.

 “Ugh, did you just say ‘cool’?”

 “Noo”.
