look its not up to me to decide what is wrong and what is right. i have my own reasons for disliking it and other people have reasons for liking it.
in my opinion mental health is an extremely complex spectrum that cannot just be sorted into “i have it” and “i dont have it”. a huge number of people suffer from mental illness without even knowing it and go undiagnosed their whole life. does that make them neurotypical? just bc they didnt know? and mental illness is also not always a constant thing. for many people it is, but a lot of times symptoms of mental illness come and go. at the times when we experience less or no symptoms at all, are we neurotypical? if i get to a point that i am able to control my illness and be a happy functional person, am i neurotypical despite the fact that i have to take a shitload of pills and therapy just to be that way? mental illness is a huge gray area and to simply try and divide it into two groups is ridiculous. if you happen to fall into that murky “in-between” area, you are labeled as nuerotypical as if its a contest to see who can be the most upset, and that just makes people more reluctant to seek help.
also the term was originally created by autistic people to describe people who did not have autism. i think its incredibly insulting to autistic people that we have taken it and turned it into something that implies autism falls under the category of mental illness.
Your art is amazing! especially your batman i really like how you draw the cowl :D but i was looking through your art and noticed that clark is colored darker than bruce and the others. i was wondering why you did what you did? this is just me being genuinely curious so please dont take any offense UwU
Thank you, I’m glad you like my art. Well, I color Clark darker than the others because I wanted to make him with dark skin. I’m latina (Brazilian to be more specific) and even though I’m white, I thought it would be nice and fun to make a Superman more close to the reality of my country (where most people are poc). Also, Since his powers come from the sun it only makes sense (to me at least, you know?).
Also, is not just Clark. His parent’s and Kara have dark skin as well. I drew Damian and his skin is a bit darker too, since he is mixed raced (he has Arabian heritage by by Talia’s side, right? Correct me if I am wrong, I’m new to all of this). But is just that.
Frd posts with click baity ass titles like “omg rng stooop..mfw what if.. OMG WHAT anyone else?? its happened again rng loves\hates me”
Post that are basically “ i found a egg/other slightly valuable thing : D”
no. you dont have to post EVERY TIME you get something “cool”. Dont see me posting every black tulip i get or rando chest. just freaking chill with the “omg look i got a battle stone :D” and shit posts. how can you even get more than 1 pages of discussion
My mom literally just called me.
Mom: Did you apply to the casinos, like I told you?
Me: No, I haven’t gotten around to it.
Translation: I can’t drive and transportation on the strip is horrible. Even if I did manage to get a toe hold in one of the casinos, the commute would be even more of a nightmare than my last one. Which was an hour and a half bus ride at 3am or 5am depending on my shift :)
Mom: well… Vero I know you dont want to hear this, but you need to do more. Okay? I need you to help me, to help you.
Me: I know, mom.
Translation: Let’s gloss over the fact that I just told you I spent the day with my future room mates looking at the apartments, the uhaul place, and discussing plans
But okay. I -need- to help you help me.
Mom: I know, you just want me to come down there, and slap you around! ::said with an affectionate tone and laugh::
Me: ::uncomfortable laughter::
Translation: Does this even need one?????
The messed up part is pre-brian, I would fall for these abuse tactics. And that makes me so -mad-.
The male benders in ATLA:
Really good. They worked hard to get where they are skill wise and while it hasn't always been easy, they are capable and can hold their own in a fight. One of them was even the Avatar, which is pretty impressive since he mastered the elements at age twelve, rather than start learning at 16 like most Avatars.
The female benders in ATLA:
Inarguably the most powerful and unmatched humans in the entire world. Prodigies, masters, and creators of subbending styles. One was compared in skill to the Fire Lord at age EIGHT and able to perform one of the rarest and most difficult forms by 14. She couldn't be defeated by another's (even the Avatar's) bending alone. Only faced defeat when fighting two other master benders while on the verge of a complete mental breakdown (officially being defeated by different female bender). Another held an entire city up by a single turret while standing on unstable ground, and then went on to invent her own bending style at the age of twelve. One mastered her element in mere WEEKS, mastered bloodbending and defeated the woman who INVENTED IT the FIRST TIME SHE EVER ATTEMPTED IT, held her own against a master waterbender without ANY TRAINING, and fully healed someone from a fatal wound, making her a master at two vastly different forms of waterbending at the age of 14. A female Avatar quite literally reshaped the planet and created her own ISLAND. AND MOVED IT ACROSS THE SEA. These women shown in the show are not only the most powerful and talented females in their universe, but also in almost any known piece of television or fiction, all while being completely fleshed out and complex characters, not being defined as nothing but 'strong'. Each has their own personality, strengths, and weaknesses.
You kissed me like you planned on doing it again
but you tasted like the kind of person
who doesn’t know how to stay
and I think I could tell what you were thinking the moment you fell asleep that night
I remember waking up so god damn early that morning and I spent hours while you were asleep hopingprayingwishing that you’d wake up and smile at me the way I needed you to
But something cracked and changed
whoever you were before that night didn’t stay
the moment you woke up that morning
you looked away
I guess what I’m trying to explain
is that people like you never mean what they say
you act like you’re in it for the long haul and then it’s oh God can’t we just stay friends but I mean Jesus Christ friends don’t look at each other the way we did when we slept in each other’s beds
so it’s not you and me anymore you know
it’s you me and everything we don’t know how to say to each other
so we hold it together in the way we never touch;
we hold it together in the way we stay
if staying friends means seeing each other
in familiar places and laughing and smiling
like you didn’t tear this to pieces
literally they begin with evie saving his life, like this ship began with girl saves boy and rick admits that’s the entire reason he goes on the adventure at all
lots of longing gazes
bANTER BANTER BANTER BANTER THE ONLY THING THAT SCARES ME MR O’CONNELL ARE YOUR MANNERS
the formal way they address each other, “mr o’connell” “evelyn”
TEAMWORK!!!!! ships that work together as a team are legit wonderful
basically every little thing evie does that wouldn’t be considered “becoming”
for a woman at that time, rick is very into. racing a camel? rick is
down. describe mummification with gross specifics? rick is very into it.
and then he steals nice tools for her which is basically the most romantic thing you could give evelyn carnahan as a present
“i… am a librarian” rick is aroused
when he helps her off the ground and very gently checks to make sure she
isnt hurt and basically casually holds her like wtf kind of romantic
bullshit is this
rick loses his shit any time evie might get hurt
like they have to hOLD HIM BACK when she goes with imhotep
“if they make me a mummy you’re the first one i’m coming after”
THEY ALWAYS HOLD HANDS WHEN RUNNING AWAY FROM DANGER
their kiss has a smiley NOSE RUB like kill me i hate them
they cuddle on a fucking camel
in the mummy returns:
A MARRIED SHIP THAT HAS BEEN TOGETHER FOR TEN YEARS, HAS A CHILD, AND IS STILL COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY FULL OF LOVE AND SUPPORT
like these assholes have been together for a decade and still make out constantly
WHEN THEY DEFEAT THE MUMMIES ON THE BUS LEGIT EVIE CROOKS HER DAMN FINGER AT HIM LIKE THEY ARE SO TURNED ON BY ALMOST DYING THAT IS BASICALLY THEIR KINK
they compromise and still work as a team so well!! they know when to do it evie’s way and when to do it rick’s way
like he hands her a gun and she nods and they basically practice how to fight at home right? they have to. they choreograph this shit.
they still banter and tease each other and it is full of so much fucking affection, gag me now
THEY JUST LIKE HOLD EACH OTHER A LOT ITS LOVELY
i dont support evie’s temporary death but also brendan fraser is literally the only man actually acting in that scene and it hurts my heart to even consider rick living without evie like that man thinks screaming AHHH at mummies will make a difference, how would he even function
just like a lot of hardcore risking their lives for each other
“do you want to know what heaven looks like?” “nope would rather make out on this blimp pls”
those are the only two mummy movies nothing else exists sorry
The Time I Pushed a Jerkface off a 35ft Cliff(With Good Reason)
Before we start off let me be clear. I did not murder a man by randomly shoving him off a cliff. Technically, I actually had permission, but still not murder. Chill.
Here we go.
So this is back in Mexico, at the same park as the Sting Ray Incident, just an hour later. Id already recovered from my near death experience and moved on from my friend nearly drowning me. I faced it, i survived, im good and not concerned.
One of the many attractions at this park was the Cliff of Courage. It’s a 35ft cliff that plunges into the water. Now, by my standards, 35ft is low for a cliff jump. Ive done way higher (adrenaline junkie) but obviously i was gonna jump just to say that I did. My parents, grandparents, and Jamie didnt want to jump. No surprise, so they went ahead to meet me on the other side of the river.
So sixteen year old me wanders over and there’s this big group of burly looking men.
They’re all standing at the edge jostling each other around. And just by looking at them you can see they’re american. I dont even need to hear their texan accents to know.
So they’re pulling the whole macho act of “you jump i jump” “ohhh but then you wont jump” bs and just generally being chickens and not willing to show it.
And because of this they wont let anyone else jump. Like ten people came and left because these jerks wouldnt let anyone else go.
Eventually i get annoyed and snap “either jump or get out of my way!”
And the dude who is obviously the leader just turns and grins at me.
He assumed what i call the “douchebag alpha male pose” hands on hips, crotch foreward, you know the one, and you know the body language that goes with it.
He thinks he’s superior. Now this guy is the biggest of them all.
Massive biceps, raging six pack, the works. The Hulk would probaby do a double take at this dudes size.
And little me is not intimidated in the least.
I learned to fight at a very young age, especially men larger than me. I know if things turns south i can take him no problem. A few hits here and there and he’s out for the count.
He starts walking towards me, and i step forward too. He may be alpha male, but he just crossed an Alpha Female who doesnt back down from a challenge.
He looks over at his pals and says,
“Ohhhh, the little lady’s going to jump, is she?” And he just sneers down at me, all arrogance and misplaced confidence.
“Tell you what, sweetheart.” Ohhh he did not just say that. “You jump, we’ll let you push us.”
Three strikes he’s out he just made the biggest mistake of his life.
I just grin and go “ok” and turn and immediately dive over the edge. Im soaring through the air, enjoying the fall. I turn just in time to see his face go from 😏 to 😧
I smack down into the water grinning. Originally the plan was the swim across the river and meet up with my family, but i am cashing in this bet. Except there’s only one way to get back up to that cliff from here
I scale the side of the cliff with the rope and I can hear them chatting nervously up top
I pop up over the edge and prop myself up on the ledge with the sweetest, most steel-lined smile I can manage and say, “who’s next?”
So Alpha laughs and stands at the edge as I haul myself up. He’s laughing and assuring his buddies he’ll be back in a second cause I wont really do it and–
I straight arm him and he goes flying
He flails and plunges over the edge, shrieking in the most high pitched, terrified shriek Ive ever heard a dude bro make. He sputters to the surface and gapes up at me as I grin like a hellion down at him. I turn to the rest of his jerk buddies and smile.
the signs when they've had enough of everyone's shit:
*scrolls through memes on instagram* you will beg on your feet when i destroy the world one day smh *forgets the fight and hugs you 2 mins afterwards*
Give me a coffee or I will write a novel and insult you all in it because im too nice to say it in your face

*sighs* what can i do when i love them
*screams while crying* I WAS THE BEST AND YOU WILL YEARN FOR ME ONE DAY BUT I WoNT BE HERE
*puts glasses on and invites you for tea* Sit down, we need to have a deep, thorough conversation and analyze all the possible aspects of the spheres of our conflict, therefore solving it properly, without further misconceptions on that particular topic.

*sobs up* I just wanted to be supportive but y'all dont know when to stop
*kills everyone in their way with their laser-beam eyes*

*finds new friends and doesnt even give a shit about their old friends*
I just need to get laid, otherwise I promise there will be casualties
hello everyb. it me, doctor elly, cat doctor ph.d (Ph.luffy Doctor).
so many people sufferin so much lately. in world, and also on small human scale. human roommnt Rave Sahnsyed and me hear from especial many of yu in this week. some of u lost somebyyd or somthin important, or anticipting loss. som of u feel so lonely n isolated. some of u have get in truble for mistake & torn between fel guilty bad (for mistake) & resent (for unfair reaction). other ppl feel guilt for have problem in face of global scary tension. some of u just very scared for no reason, or all reason.
im dont mean 2 minimize all individ problem by combinin response this way. but i am nonly one small cat & carnt even read. so, its hard 2 answer all of this. especial hard for me 2 answer questions no one can answer, like, what happen if we cannot stop unraveling of global systm? jeez, i donnt no. im domb as hell.i mean yestrday i got trap again between glass tabletop n table.
so look, i say this only. i make recomend:take some time 2 NOT BE ON INTERNET. i know this sim like denial – STOP ABSORBING INFORMATION! – but internet IN PARTICULAR is machine for collapsing of experience. is no way 2 make emotional distinction betwen things Happenin to U and things Happenin to World that matter and things Happnin to U And World that dont matter, on itnernet. its all comes at u all time and it only make so tired.
so this is why im ask u to unplug for couple hours or days if u can. ok? try maybe only tomor saturday. read book from paper, newspaper from paper. go outdise if u can, see how flowers comin in on trees. perhaps go to tax march tomor if u feel like u must engage with World. listen to new kendrick album!! (doctor lely luv kendric.) enjoy sensual, concrete pleasure and pains. try 2 spend time living consciously in those sensations, good n bad.
adapt this recomnednatin to yur personal situat and limits. i cant atully go outside bc will die of panic attack if bird or squril gets 2 close. so im just stick my butt out window in the sun. this give me perspectiv and warm.
will this solv world problem? of course not. but mayb will give u strength & distance from feeling of crushing overwhelm, deep breath from which yu can re-enter heartbreaking lovely pointless important garbage endeavor of being alive. im tellin yu, those flower are gud.
I just had a spur of the moment idea to make a comic where hanzo and mccree work together irl in normal overwatch but they both got signed up for some dating site and got matched up and start talking without realizing it’s actually each other. irl, they don’t talk much and when they do it’s just. “hi” but when they talk on the app its all flirty and gay and good. I’m just runnin with this to see how far i c an go so!! bear with me ahah
HONESTLY LIKE we dont give aja enough credit for what she did on s9!!! on ep 1 gaga told her to take her septum out and she did and never put it back in again……… the judges said they didnt like her makeup and wanted it to be softer (even though thats her look) and she did it as soon as they asked! like it was so nice to see her take critiques the way she did and actually improve when other queens just bitched about it ANYWAY!!!!! love ha
