i-want-to-be-pretty

I remember when I was a little girl I always wanted to be pretty. I was told that black was a weird clothing choice, and proper ladies don’t wear fishnets or corsets. That long black skirts weren’t flattering, and I should really wear a pair of jeans from time to time. That my dresses should sport sunflowers and rays of sunshine instead of Victorian patterns and skulls. I was told to try a different color than black eyeliner and eyeshadow, and that I should wear blue contacts if I wanted to look pretty. I wanted to be my own pretty. I wanted people to look past the makeup and odd clothing and challenge them to ask me what kind of person I was. “I don’t want to be your dirty pretty” 🖤

slightly based off the non-canon teenage Mabel and Dipper from Alex and Dana’s livestream charity drawing (vid pt1 and pt 2; ‘cause the livestream is amazing)

Fun fact! When I was about to start Freshman year of High School I decided that I wanted to go Goth (note: I pretty much am Mabel so you know how well that would have worked out; obviously didn’t last long and by that I mean barely a month). And my brother was quick to point out how that made no sense and would not work out for me. Ergo, I had to draw that exchange happening between Mabel and Dipper.

I'm writing a desi character and I want some pretty words to describe her, can you help me out?

ooh, desi characters can be so diverse in themselves! Talk about her features, not in the western way of ‘skin colour, eye colour, hair colour, done’ and not by making them sound exotic (you know how white people sometimes talk about poc in their writing? that one way they describe pretty asian girls? don’t do that). Talk about her hair, how curly or straight it is, whether she keeps fiddling with it or pulling on it, if it’s usually unkempt or really neat. Talk about her eyes, but don’t focus on the colour. Talk about whether she wears kajal, or eyeliner, of if she usually has some dark circles, talk about how she squints when she’s trying to focus, about how she looks straight at whoever she’s talking to or tends to avoid direct eye contact. If she wears glasses and if so, does she keep fixing them? Does she frequently take them off or push them up on her head (I do that a lot). Talk about her mouth and whether she’s freely giving away open smiles, or if she takes care to not express much. Is she expressive and animated while talking, or fixes a smile on her face and let’s go of it the second people stop looking at her? Talk about her skin, is it light or dark (India has a wide variety on skin tones)? Does she keep her body hair, or shave it off? Is her skin clear, or is it pockmarked or birthmarked or spotted? (Don’t write any of these things being better than the other. Don’t say ‘her skin was pretty, despite the marks along the arm’ or something like that. Just describe what it is.), As for most other characters, my advice is, don’t spend a long time writing a paragraph of description for your character. Instead, keep talking about these things as the story goes along, and avoid adjectives and just talk about what she is, how the people talk about her and to her. Because ‘show not tell’ is the best way to establish a character description. 

Ehi mamma,
Sono io, tua figlia, la tua piccolina. Mi dispiace vederti triste mamma, ora ti racconto tutta la storia, promesso.
È iniziato tutto durante le vacanze estive della seconda media, te lo ricordi il campeggio? Tu mi avevi detto che mi sarei divertita insieme agli altri bambini e io ti ho creduto, tu avevi sempre ragione.
Ecco, non è andata proprio così.
Ero in una camera insieme ad altre bambine che non conoscevo, eravamo in 13 e dormivamo in tanti letti a castello. Loro si conoscevano già, a me ci è voluto più tempo.
Ho conosciuto Ilaria, aveva i capelli morbidi e lucidissimi e gli occhi scuri. Mi ricordo che le invidiavo tutto, lei era bella e tutti le volevano subito bene. Una volta le ho chiesto “Come fai?” E lei si è toccata una clavicola.
“Io ero come te, poi abbiamo fatto un patto con le mie amiche, e abbiamo deciso che per essere belle bisogna sempre essere abbastanza magre da avere le clavicole sporgenti”
Tutto qui. Mi sono guardata allo specchio. Ecco perchè io non ero bella. Le mie clavicole non sporgevano mamma, capisci? Non si riusciva a capire neanche se ci fossero, sotto quello strato di pelle e grasso e tristezza.
Sono passati quattro anni mamma, e io ho mantenuto con tutti il segreto di Ilaria e delle sue amiche. Tu sei la prima a cui lo racconto, mi raccomando, non dirlo in giro. La cosa che ancora non sai è che anche io mi sono unita a loro in un patto silenzioso.
Guardami mamma, guarda come sono bella ora. Le vedi le mie clavicole, proprio lì, all’attaccatura delle spalle? Vedi come si tende la pelle quando mi muovo?
Non essere triste della mia felicità mamma, finalmente riesco a guardarmi allo specchio senza farmi schifo. Sono diventata anche io una di quelle bambine popolari, mi sorridono tutti.
Non era questo che volevi? Non piangere mamma, quell’essere orribile che era la vecchia me non esiste più, ora sono rinata, non piangere su quelle spoglie che ora mi stanno larghe.
Guarda come sono felice, e leggera, e libera, guardami mamma, guarda come sono morta.

i started listening to TAZ! (i’m about 5647892 years late to this party, as always) but boi do i love it! holy crap

i just finished ‘moonlighting’, but i’ve been wanting to draw this part from ‘here there be gerblins’ for a while now. (it’s from when they exited the jerk off tunnel and are about to fight that blob thing) it didn’t turn out like i wanted it to, but it’s still pretty so i’m posting. might redraw it later though!

anyway yeah, i love it so far! @theadventurezone

Accepting Anxiety: Part 2/2: Can Anxiety Be Good? Analysis

Okay so before I start jsyk I’ve been happy stimming since I saw the video my arms are so tired


- Roman’s previously is so extra

- The clock is in color now

- Anxiety’s room: Anime poster, masquerade mask, candles, album art, a LOT of Nightmare Before Christmas stuff, spooky lamp, spider curtains, cat

- We get Anxiety’s music it’s nice

- Patton really hates spiders // when he needs comfort, he buries his face in the cardigan

- Roman is protective of Morality

- Everyone has cool toned lighting except for Anxiety, his is warm. And he fills up more of the frame than usual

- Anxiety is so, so, so, mad about them being in his room. His eyeshadow is way darker as well.

- Roman screams like a little girl

- Does Roman always have a brush on him? Or???

- “Didn’t seem like I was wanted. You all made that pretty clear.” He looks at Roman when he says that, then glances away. 

- This is the third or fourth time he’s said, “Except you, Patton.”

- “I love my dark strange son” *Heathers playing the background*

- Roman is horrible at making things better

- THomas tells ROman to shut up the first time

- Logan is the first to get eyeshadow beneath his eyes. As the video progresses, the other two get them as awell and they get darker, eventually worse than Anxiety’s

- Anxiety is so unhappy that they’re there. “If I wanted to be insulted, I would have just shown up like I usually do.” His room has been a place where he’s safe, and they’ve corrupted that

- “You poor little anxious baby”

- Thomas doesn’t have eyeshadow on I don’t think but he has bags under his eyes T H O M A S go to sleep

- Everyone is kind of an asshole in this video it’s weird

- There is so much self hatred in Anxiety

- Thomas tells Roman to shut up a second time, third, and fourth time

- Each time we cut back to roman during that, his eyeshadow is darker

- Patton asks about Roman’s self esteem issues 

- and then gets insecure about his questions // when he does so he flinches back away from Princey like he’s waiting to be attacked either physically or verbally. I know that look

- Patton is supportive 

- I just noticed this but Patton’s camera is angled downwards

- Logan rambles and gets dark help him

- Anxiety flinches from Logan yelling (there’s a lot of loud and a lot of flinching in this video)

- Patton doesn’t like loud noises either

- Logan’s eyeshadow gets worse as he rambles and Princey’s hair starts to fall into his face

- Anxiety is an alarm clock

- Patton yells that Anxiety is happiness

- Logan doesn’t like the loud noise now too “E=MC scared”

- Patton is worried he won’t be allowed the chance to speak

- When Thomas is praising Anxiety, Roman looks extremely distressed and takes two deep breaths

- Roman admitting that Anxiety isn’t all bad looks so difficult for him but it also comes out like something he’s been trying to say for a long time but hasn’t been able to psych himself up to do

- Anxiety’s small smile at Roman saying he makes them all better

- Roman’s immediate response after the smile is “Was that good did I do good?”

- The effect on Anxiety’s voice is beautiful

- Breathing as a technique to stop the anxiety (I know it’s a thing but doesn’t work for me)

- Anxiety praises Thomas as he guides him from the mindscape

- “Being anxious about getting more anxious. Sounds like me”

- Roman is genuinely surprised that Anxiety saved him

- Even though he plays it off, it means a lot to Anxiety that Patton is proud of him

- “Vigilant People” *eyebrow raise* foreshadow

- Anxiety is genuinely distressed about sharing his name

- “You’re great Patton”

- “Logan. Shut your ever flapping gobtalker.”

- Patton is all of us

- No music during the reveal

- Roman is in complete panic about Thomas wanting to know about his laughter in regards to Anxiety being a virgin…. uh….. okay

- Roman acknowledges how much Anxiety had to trust them to reveal his name as Virgil. 

- By the way, Virgil is derived from Vigilant. It’s also of Roman descent

- “You can call me Verge” okay edgelord

-  W H A T  O T H E R S ROMAN stop dropping bombs on us

- Sound of Music farewells

- Anxiety is so happy to be accepted

- The end card is so cute Patton is so pure I love him

Take it easy, guys, gals and nonbinary pals
