ok so if youre following me and haven’t watched class already, i wouldn’t blame you if you just looked away from the title lmao, i am quite forceful when it comes to this
ANYWAY, as most of you probably know already, the new series of doctor who premieres on bbc america tonight at 9/8c (if you’re in the small minority who doesn’t just download it illegally when it comes out in the uk), and that’s awesome!! but before you’re tempted to switch off your tv immediately and scream on social media - there is a new show starting straight after, and you should really watch it
class is a spin-off of doctor who set at coal hill school, with a torchwood-like premise in that there is a tear in space and time which attracts a bunch of aliens. the cast is HUGELY diverse - there’s a black girl who is super intelligent and skipped two school years, but is still vulnerable and cares deeply about her family (and calls out another character on his alien racist attitudes); a sikh boy who talks about his religion, and loses a leg in the first episode and has to get used to using a prosthetic, and a gay polish character who deals with homophobia, but that isn’t his entire character. the only two white males are in a gay relationship, and there are two interracial relationships as well.
THERE’S NOT A SINGLE STRAIGHT WHITE MALE IN THE MAIN CAST!!
also it’s not written by moffat if that helps - its written by YA author patrick ness who’s written stuff like a monster calls, more than this, the rest of us just live here, etc.
HOWEVER, at the moment, due to lack of advertising from the bbc, only being shown online and being given a shitty time slot when it actually was shown on bbc one, it is very low on viewing figures, and in danger of not being renewed for a second season. at the moment, the bbc haven’t made a decision, and it entirely depends on how well it does in america - so it’s crucial that you watch it!! even if you don’t want to actually watch the show, at least leave your tv on after dw, to boost the viewing figures. posting about in online, specifically twitter and instagram since those are the only ones the bbc care about, would also help a lot, and signing the petition for season two (that i can’t link right now as im on mobile)
(the characters i didn’t mention are brilliant as well - there’s a girl who seems like a typical hufflepuff at the start but then becomes probably the second most badass character in the show, gay alien prince who’s socially awkward and adorable but also super morally grey and pretty much a slave owner, and although he doesn’t think so he gets called out on it a lot, and an alien freedom-fighter physics teacher who has hilarious lines but also a really complex personality and backstory and gets a shit ton of character development. she’s my fave. i love her a lot.)
tl;dr: class is on bbc america tonight at 10/9c (after dw), its really good, watch it or it won’t get a second season and i’ll cry
To add onto that last ask. Why do people even try to force Soriel as a ship in the first place? It's pretty clear that the two are just good friends and there isn't anything to suggest ronance in the least. Why can't more people just accept that they are BFFs and move on?
Because people can interpret relationships and interaction differently. I myself think that they are like very very good friends with no ship status but i can see why other people see them having an intimate relationship.
Honestly a lot of things can suggest “romance” . Quoting from wiki “
a feeling of excitement and mystery associated with love.” which you can get from anything honestly. The comfort of being with each other and such , spending time together so on and so forth. Again, people interpret things differently and thats fine? Its really not a bad thing to do.
Also honestly but this maybe just me, but i prefer to have a normal friendship first before getting into a relationship? Like you dont just see someone and go “HOO BOOY THATS THE ONE RIGHT THERE MMMM GOOOD I KNOW EVERYTHING BOUT THEM WOOOOO”, for me theres steps to build that feeling x). And I guess from Soriel shippers they see it from how Toriel and Sans have been acquainted for so long (even through with that big door in the way) and they enjoy each others company, pun and jokes are the things that make them happy with each other (I think) and by the phonecalls after Asriel broke the barrier is does seem that Toriel is hella comfortable with sans too xD.
which is why i can see Why people would ships sans and toriel x) though for myself i see them as hella good friends since i find it a bit hard to move on from past relations. My idea is that Toriel does not hate hate asgore you know. Its the heat at the moment and such, i could honestly go on and on about this but im doodling right now owo. Toriel isnt exactly innocent tbh on the account of asgores “sins” . and Everyone deserves a second chance :D
Why can’t some people just accept the fact that people think differently and its not a bad thing to do so? Whats the harm is shipping Soriel? it doesnt matter who you ship , its fictional, we are all here to have fun lmao. As far as my friends concern, They never bash me to ship soriel lmao and we are p chill with each other. Why cant we all just be friends y’know?
tl:dr : i dont see them as forcing the ship , its their interpretation, and we all have different
How do you make pins? I been wanting to make pins for so long but idk how to even start its so confusing please help me ;_; no one wants to tell me how to make my own pins. I have my own designs and everything
Okay! This is a very long post and I’ll try to get you as much info as I can. I’ve found that the pin making community is very closed off with providing help to new creators since there’s been such an increase in people making pins. So I completely get that you’ve been having issues finding out how to start.
If you already have designs in mind the best thing to do is have them digitized if you haven’t already. The best option is to have a vector file where each of the enamel colours is on a separate layer with no overlapping of the colours or metal areas. This isn’t necessary since a lot of pin manufacturers can digitize your design from a drawing but having them do it can lead to issues and a lot of back and forth changes because they have to trace the image you give them. It’s a lot easier if you can give them a file that they don’t have to do anything with a can use right off the bat to make a mold.
Here’s a pin that I just got made recently that I’ll use as an example through this. The full design in the top left but you can see that each enamel colour can be pulled off separately and leave a solid background that shows the metal of the pin with no overlapping parts.
Also fyi I use Adobe Illustrator to do my designs.
Long post is long. So you’ll have to keep reading :)
