Your blog is pretty great, and that's not a single dash of the sarcasm. But I must ask: Why do you hang left?

Because the right has demonstrated, through its policies and cultural movements, that it does not care about marginalized people. They offer no mechanism or plan to help them; quite the contrary - they too frequently view themselves as being under attack by people who they view as less than themselves and double down on their hideous policies to further protect their cultural hegemony. It’s despicable.

I know it's generally better to tag too much than too little but also in general the only people i see tagging "q-slur" are exclusionists who think less people should reclaim the word queer. to keep it balanced, because i don't think you're trying to align yourself with them, maybe also tag gay as g-slur? because gay got thrown around a lot more harmfully than queer in my schools growing up and I've talked to enough people to know my experience with people abusing that word isn't uncommon

“tags q slur” and “excludes people from the LGBT community” is a false equivalency, and you’d do well to not view people so black and white. i think gender is oppressive, but that does not make me a terf. indeed, i am a trans woman.

If you put Parker in a coffin and buried it, she’d be fine. If you stuck her in a cage, stuffed her into a chimney, locked her in a safe, etc, she’d be fine.

But right now, she was not fine.

What're your thoughts on mvci? (Personally I think its dumb that they're no down yet but I'm hyped for venom) also thoughts on db fighterz?

Its presentation is ugly under a lot of circumstances and lacks any kind of unique artistic style, the PR is a laughable, and the current roster is so safe im gonna fall asleep. Fortunately, the gameplay itself isnt as stale as it may seem to some. Lots of top marvel players say its hype too, and i dont think theyre shilling for the most part so theres that too.

But as it stands now, this game has waaay more standing against it than it does for it. I dont want it to fail though, even if im not the biggest fan of marvel style gameplay.

And i think dbzf looks pretty sick. Unlike marvel, this game has an amazing presentation, and you can just tell a lot of attention and care went into its visuals. Even people who arent dbz fans think this game looks cool. tbh Aksys + *insert anime here* is a dream match so its very hard not to be hyped for this.

Though, i do hope the controls arent too simple, but i understand why theyd want it to be as accessible as possible.

I was reading this interview that MCR did about Danger Days, and it sort of hit me why I connect with that album so much.

I’ve explained before how one lyric - “the aftermath is secondary” - gave me the courage to walk away from a household that had become abusive. I have a few mutuals, who are younger than me, who are in households like that right now, and they want to leave, but they’re scared, like I was, because they’re not sure how they’ll make it on their own.

And it really is, to me, like choosing the desert over Battery City. In your family’s home, you’re at least fed, and sheltered. You’re financially supported. In some ways, its safer there. But of course, in other ways, it could be traumatic and horrible. Maybe you’re being emotionally abused, or even hit. And that ‘safety’ no longer feels worth it. Maybe they’re just trying to dictate how your life is going to be.

But if you run, you have to figure out how you’ll survive on your own. You’ll need a place to live. You’ll need money, you’ll need food. And depending on where you go (especially if you’re homeless), you could be placing yourself in considerable danger.

I am a Killjoy. My “desert” wound up being the ghettos of Cleveland. I’m broke, and life here is dangerous. But I’m free to do whatever I wish with my own life . And is that worth it?

In a recent stream a new sample track for SJR was revealed along with a new demon whose identity at the moment is unknown. I honestly can't tell who its supposed to be since it looks too over the top without any real context. Wondering if you have a better idea who the mystery demon is.

Hooooo boy. I guessed Anahita, but on this one frankly I have no idea. It doesn’t look like anything from mythology. More sentai heroes…*barf*

However, that’s why I don’t think it’s a demon. My initial impression was that it’s a human “hero” type, after some transformation. At least I hope. The Varuna blades and the whole aesthetic would be a lot more appropriate for some alignment representative than a demon. Jimenez/Zelenin? Jimenezelenin? That wouldn’t be first dumb name for two fused beings we’ve seen recently…

I was thinking maybe it was the protagonist after being beefed up with Amon or something, but it would seem weird to give that away in a trailer. I dunno. Cross your fingers it’s not a demon or is something so obscure it wouldn’t really matter!

Why do you think that KO will become another Steven?

Aha.. ahaahaha! While I don’t think its definitely going to happen I see it as a possibility 

Well like Steven KO works with a group of people who are older and stronger than him and KO strives to rise to grow to his full potential like Steven which is a good thing (we aint on the bad part yet) 

So like I said the two people KO work with (They can be seen as the Crystal gems to Steven) Rad(icles) and Enid are older, stronger and have more experience than KO this show actually has hero levels. Enid is level 3 Rad 2 and KO is level 0… point one. At this point KO is far from becoming  a Fix it KO JR but he has the potential to mainly because  KO seems to  be almost always right. BUT. KO does have his flaws from time to time but so did Steven in Season 1! And we’re on season 1 right now on OK KO so we just gotta pray that our lil KO doesnt get on the same train as Steven and follow that track right now hes standing outside the  train station.

Uhhhhggggffpptt... Bonquisha...David was too nice to her. She literally broke up with him hours before their date because he was not "man" enough... She saw his profile! He's a skinny twunk who loves camping and children?? He has the camp camp song as his description?? Who would look at that and say "well, ya know, I like to date big buff guys, BUt ill date this child worker just for the heck of it." Cause he "owed" her a date. And then breaks up with him cause he shows more emotion than usual.

reck2468 said:Sorry for the rant😌😅, I have strong feelings about this fictional woman… David’s to good for this fling bs. Love your art btw!


Thanks and its alright, I don’t mind! Omg you called him a twunk jfjyc but yeah bonquisha.. like she probably could’ve just left the play without demands haha

I totally get that all parents get some time off, and i totally get that ben is a multi millionaire, so its super easy for him to get help when they want time off, but i know lots of busy parents who are away from their kids more than they want to be. even if you love the theatre, none of the fathers i know would choose an 8+ hour show to go to when they are already away from their kids so much. plus choosing to not bring them to kid friendly events? it just seems like ben doesn’t bother with his kids when he does get the chance to be w them. most daddies I know who are away from their kids for work for long stretches of time, not able to tuck them in at night and giggle w them over breakfast, certainly take some time off for dates w their wives, but they would NEVER not bring them to something like the wilderness fest, and they just wouldn’t pick a show that long. they value their down time w their family though since its limited. ben doesn’t seem to

You mean like when they left Pilo to the imaginary nanny when Pilo was 1 month and 9 days old to go to Wimbledon?  With Weirdo wearing a pale yellow skirt that was singed at the waist and showcased her thin frame?

JT, stop being so plebeian and unwashed.  Ben has to keep up with new productions at the theatre.  Whether he goes alone or with friends or with his wife, it doesn’t matter.  What matters is that virtually everything is more important than the pillows.  Even goat-infested store openings when the second pillow was just 1 month and 3 days old.  Because… why not?  At least that didn’t take more than 4 hours…  :P

I finally found this book with REALLY in-depth information on specific sailing terms (weirdly hard to find totally period accurate ones aside from the general sort of thing you hear in movies, and I haven’t seen a thorough set online or in my other books) and man lemme tell you. It’s so jargony it barely makes sense. So WISH ME LUCK. 

dear d,

I just checked the list of people who will be on my summer job with me. you were one of them.

I’m exhausted. and hurt.

it’s as if faith likes to play its games with me and I’m always the one loosing.

I was letting you go. How am I supposed to continue doing that when we’ll be working side by side for weeks?

I’m just hoping you chose a different week than mine.

if you did not, let’s pray I’ll make it out alive.

-overly emotional girl

Not at all exhaustive list of things I’ve learned this year

-there’s a difference between taking your sadness seriously, and letting it define you

-someone who will be there and make you laugh when things are hard is worth just as much as someone who will tell you how much they love you in great poetic swoops but disappear when you just need a friend

-love doesn’t have to hurt

-not everyone you love will leave you and fearing that might say as much about the people you love as it does about you

-the universe is impossibly big, but you are still the protagonist of your own story, and everyone else is the same in theirs

-mental health isn’t fixed, and you can change your circumstances to improve it

-take the jump, more times than not. 

-its okay to miss someone and love someone and still move on from them

-theres such a thing as foul weather friends, who only want to be there when  you need fixing. they’re more dangerous than any other kind.

-someday you will find a grrl who loves you like you never thought you could be loved and you’ll believe in a future with her and even better you won’t be scared of a future where things with her are different because she has brought a color to the world that extends beyond herself and now the trees are beautiful and the sky and the sun and. if she goes that light is gonna stay and whats between you two can’t be poisoned even if it fades (and you hope it wont but youre not afraid)

-its okay to have regrets and you don’t have to rewrite your past to convince yourself everything happened the best way it could have

-you will hurt the people you love more with your silence than your words. honesty is rarely manipulative (though timing can be).

-yet, not every sadness needs to be spoken

-few fractures are the fault of just one party. stop trying to find someone to blame, and start hoping that both of you will heal. 

-everyone is special, and everyone is worth something to someone. 

-its better to not promise at all, than to make promises you cant keep

-there will be many loves of your life. when they come, it will be softly. you will not be desperate- you will find yourself liking them, and one day realize you will never stop. 

-it is possible to mourn and remain deeply happy. 

-it is worth it to hope.

Can you give me somw advice on my OCs. The one I'm having problem with is a kid abuse victim (Knight of Rage actually), and he sort of decided to make sure it never happens again via training to kick peoples asses. He's also picked up the habit of forcing himself and others to keep their promises and deals, even if they use Exact Words. The problem I'm having is that I don't know whether this is considered inacvurate or stereotypical, and whether ot not I should change it.

it depends on how its portrayed really, i dont think it sounds too bad as long as its carried out with respect and also if hes a well rounded character with more traits and development other than “that abused kid whos Mean because he was abused wow 10/10 development everyone pat yourselves on the back”. im sure you have lots of things planned with your character outside of this, but asks have a character limit. 

a lot of the characters in homestuck are abuse victims that deal with different types of abuse.

(dave at the hands of bro, vriska at the hands of her lusus and doc scratch, tavros at the hands of vriska, jake at the hands of dirk/hal/brobot and crockerteir jane, dolorosa at the hands of mindfang, nana, grandpa, poppop, and grandma at the hands of the HIC, terezi at the hands of gamzee, meulin at the hands of kurloz, calliope at the hands of caliborn… i could go on, and i havent even mentioned any implied ones only the ones that were very obvious)

each of these is a different type of abuse for different reasons, all are still abuse but the way the victims react and are shaped because of it in their arc is different. they were all portrayed pretty well though. 

i can go into detail about each of these and none of them would feel rehashed or copied, even if theyre simmular, like terezi and meulin, their abuse may seem simmular on the surface but their abusers motives, their reactions, and their relationships with their abusers are all incredibly different, resulting in different.

you can have a character who reacts to abuse in whatever way would make sense for their character, but the thing is you have to remember theres more to them than just their abuse, dont make it a cookie cutter stereotypical “this character was abused! feel sympathy for them!!” kind of character.

what im saying is treat your character like a character, the same way you treat all the others. give them quirks, flaws, strengths, interests, and motives the same way you do with every other character, but dont ignore the abuse in their arc, make us see how it effected them, not as a pity ploy but because thats how real people work.

im sure your character is just fine!

How this life can be a choice ? It's a torture.

Anon I agree, believe me I agree.

It’s not nice see him forced to do things with a person we know very well he hates. It’s not nice see him try to pretend to be happy - and yes body language, especially in slow motion is very clear.

And I know he didn’t choice to kiss her, because it’s clear who lean it and he see her just because he was looking towards her and because somehow she told him. It’s wasn’t volunteer, it was as you said a torture. When that woman is around is always a torture.

But he choose this life and its consequences. Unfortunately the consequences are almost so much more than benefits. But trust him. Trust them. If they chooce to take this way, it’s because maybe it’s the best for them as singular and couple. They know what’s going on in their life, we don’t. Again trust them.

Focus always on them. They’re important.

can you believe there are people out there who speak MULTIPLE languages and then APOLOGIZE for not having perfect grammar in their third or fourth language?????? like do you know how incredible you are???

I feel like Link needs more hugs than he receives in game (which is nearly none).

Maleficent is a dragon who cursed an infant because she wasn’t invited to a christening, this woman CANNOT raise a child.

Queen Griemhilde is a conceited, vain witch who killed a 14 year old because she was prettier than her, this woman CANNOT raise a child.

Jafar hypnotised the sultan, got himself turned into a magician, a genie, just for power and forced a 15 year old to be his slave girl, this man CANNOT raise a child.

Cruella DeVil is a mentally ill woman whose affection consists of derogatory comments, blowing smoke in your face and never taking no for an answer, this woman CANNOT raise a child.

So, let’s say Evie, Carlos, Mal and Jay grow up on an island without magic, surrounded by murderers, thieves, people who did bad things, people who are proud of these things. Let’s say, they don’t teach them to be evil. Let’s say, they teach them ‘don’t let anyone keep you from what you want, you are a queen, a dragon, a genie, you are magic’. Ben has dreams about a girl with green eyes and lilac hair, of a girl who is different, something fae, and he remembers the fairy who cursed his father because he wasn’t kind, so he asks his parents to let some of the villain’s kids stay in Auradon. Show them goodness.

When they arrive, they don’t arrive in a tumbling mess. They don’t even get out of the car, and when the chauffeur opens the door, there’s a stick thin girl with long blue hair staring at her hands, a muscled boy who almost isn’t a boy anymore, rubbing the bands on his arms, the girl from his dreams, eyes glowing, a little boy dressed in fur curled up in their laps.
They aren’t used to magic, even though it is in their very cores. So they take time to get used to it, to learn to live with death and power under their skin.

They weren’t sent to get a wand for world domination. They were sent to get a wand for freedom. So it takes them longer to realise just what their parents did. It takes talks and family day and Queen Leiah screaming at the top of her lungs (‘Get away from here, do not touch my grandchild, my daughter will never be mine because of you, how dare you, how dare you?’) for Mal to realise that this isn’t about invitations and pettiness. It’s about a woman with hair as yellow as gold and lips that shame the red red rose, growing up poor, in a cottage, falling to her death at the touch of a spindle, this is about her mother talking about the raven with more fondness than her, this is about all the things her mother did, no matter the reason.

Evie still studies with Doug, and she hasn’t been taught to score a prince, she’s been taught to use her beauty, it is all men want, get rid of them before they get rid of you, do NOT die. So she meets with Doug at his house and Dopey stares at her and then he gets Snow White, who breaks down crying at the sight of this thin, beautiful girl with hair in a colour that has haunted her sleep ('what did she do to you, was it not enough for her to kill me, what has she done to you’) and Evie realises that her mother’s stories are not about men, they are about this woman, about her sister, who was 14 and beautiful and dead. And this is about her and all the bones she can count when she looks in the mirror.

Jay befriends the only other Arabian speaking children he can find, plays gurney, ruthless and self centered and for him, and one day Aladdin picks his children up and Jay does one of those backflips where he stays in the air for too long and it knocks the wind out of him. Jay doesn’t understand because of Aladdin, he sees a thief, who is like him, but it isn’t what makes him think, tourney does the trick because they are a team and the world does not revolve around him, he is not the center of the universe.

Carlos knows that his mother is wrong from the moment he is old enough to master critical thinking. She shrieks and hits and worships fur and he spends his days begging for scraps. There’s no magic in him, no rush he gets from crossing the barrier, so he helps his friends. They have always been his lifeline, so maybe now he can be theirs.
