just use generators

One thing that fucked me up when trying to figure out my sexuality was the fact that you can experience attraction to different genders in different ways and nobody told me that.

So I’ll say it. If you experience attraction to different genders in different ways, that’s totally okay. Sexuality isn’t black or white, it’s grey and that’s okay. The terms “asexual” or “bisexual” or “gay” or anything else are just generalizations for us to use to categorize ourselves if we so choose!

You define your label. Words are there for us to utilize, they don’t define you.

apparently there’s a bulletin board on the tempest where your crew can leave messages for you and your shipmates but from what the people who got to play the game saw it was generally just used for teammates to complain about each other

‘Peebee, where the fuck is my scarf. I know you have it. It’s convenient that you were talking about how soft it looks yesterday at the bar and now SUDDENLY it’s gone. My sister made that for me so if it’s not back in my cabin by the time I’m back from recon I’m going to strangle you by the arm straps of your jacket.’ - V

‘Whoever told Jaal that I am some expert on human copulating behaviors better hope they never need any extensive medical care anytime soon. I just had to spend four hours of my valuable time explaining to a seven foot tall Angara how clitoral stimulation works. P.S; I know it was you Liam.’ -Dr. Lexi

‘Whoever keeps changing my name to ‘Kaitlyn’, ‘Susan’ or ‘Becky’ on my locker and the official mission statements is going to get shot directly out of the airlock.’ - Lt. Harper

‘While I know Peebee might get on everyones nerves once in a while, the next person to try to jettison her escape pod off the ship in the middle of the night is on toilet duty for a week. I’m sick of this. You’re adults, not middle schoolers.’ - Kallo

Polynesian Beliefs in Fantasy

Hello!

I’m thinking of working on a fantasy novel about mermaids.  The mermaids are various ethnicities and will be from regions like the Caribbean Sea and the Pacific Ocean.  I am from the Caribbean and feel like I understand the nuances of Caribbean culture, but I don’t think I’ll have the same understanding of other cultures.  I have two questions:

1) Is it problematic to include Polynesian mythology from across many Pacific Islands?  Or would it be more respectful to include mythology from one culture instead?  

2) Is using Polynesian mythology problematic in general, and if so would including something like folklore be more respectful?   

I would like to include aspects of various cultures, but if some things are problematic I might decide to include an ethnically diverse cast and either come up with my own ideas for the mermaids’ culture or have the mermaids culture be more influenced by nature/the environment.

I’d appreciate any opinions on this.  Thank you for your help! 

Note- I am not Polynesian and have a tendency to miss a few things about the various Polynesian cultures, because I only know it from anthropology. So grain of salt!

  1. I’d say it 100% depends on how well you can represent each culture. There’s nothing inherently wrong with it, but opinions are split on tokenism and homogenization. If you feel you could accurately represent multiple cultures without going “look at how diverse my world is and how educated I am!”, then go for it. Even if you just end up showing one, you can hint at others within the plot of the novel. I’d personally love to see more knowledge about the diversity within Indigenous groups in published works.
  2. I tend to take issue with the word “mythology” for Indigenous beliefs, because mythology tends to apply to “dead or exotic” things in the West. Indigenous beliefs are religions that are still alive. But, different groups/people have different preferences, so that word could be completely fine.

But as for just generally using Polynesian beliefs? It completely depends if you have permission to use them. Some parts of Polynesian beliefs are closed (like… don’t go giving characters tattoos willy nilly. Those are very sacred things that have detailed processes to determine what they are and who gets them), but nothing’s stopping you from exploring.

When in doubt, ask. If you get a yes, then go for it. If you get a “modify,” modify it according to their instructions. If you get a no, then rework.

Hope this is helpful!

Ok but replace the nerf gun with a real gun and this week’s AHWU more or less features my image of FAHC Steffie; chill and organised with occasional bouts of vicious retribution. 

I feel like she spends most of her time rolling her eyes and cleaning up messes - finding a last minute replacement for bikes the Lad’s totalled a day before the heist, sourcing new suppliers every time the crew manages to kill off or mortally offend another one, identifying lists of contractors to look into for various one-off jobs, tactfully losing keys or bottles or specific addresses when one of her crew-mates is hellbent on making a fool of themselves. 90% of the time she does it all with minimal complaint; some snarky sarcasm, threats about one day leaving them high and dry, the occasional stubborn strike until someone owns up to their latest incident of assholery, but everyone’s patience has limits. She’s not a saint. 

Steffie snapping is a rare event, happens maybe once a year if that, but there’s no missing it when she does. No one gets any warning, it’s more often a last straw kind of situation than a response to one big fuck up, and her rage is as brief as it is destructive. Once, after the countless shrugged off eh we’ll just get another one incident of the week Steffie took a gun, calmly made her way to the penthouse’s garage and introduced several new holes to some of the more expensive vehicles stored there. Another time she wheeled Geoff’s fully stocked alcohol cabinet onto the balcony and pushed it off, yet another had her snatching Ryan’s mask right out of his hand and hurling it into the lit fireplace, simultaneously melting the skull beyond recognition and forcing everyone to evacuate to avoid the fumes. For the shortest of times Steffie is loud, is angry and disappointed and thoroughly unimpressed, she is truely pissed off and it is terrifying

As soon as she’s gotten her frustration out Steffie sighs and gets right back to work, as reliable as ever, but the outbursts never fail to leave the rest of the crew kind of shocky, torn between horror and awe. When they’re not the target the rest of Support is mostly entertained; take pains not to draw attention to themselves as they settle back and watch the fireworks unfold. On the other hand the main crew, who are in many unexpected ways absolute wimps, tend to slink away with their tails between their legs, wide-eyed and vowing to behave themselves while hissing angry complaints at whoever managed to knock Steffie over the edge this time.

first selfie on this blog??? 😱

honestly i just feel really unsafe when i see nonpsychotic/nonantisocial people rb anything that includes the word “psycho” (esp if it’s edgy aesthetic) bc more often than not if they meet an actual “ps*cho” they’re the first to yell bad person

i do think we need like, some word between “sexual abuser” and “douchebag” to describe people who are just generally shitty to their hookups and should be avoided. you know the type i’m talking about, just like emotionally manipulative narcissists who sleep around a lot and leave a trail of destruction in their wake. because i feel like it’s soooo easy for those people to get excused when it’s revealed they haven’t actually sexually assaulted anyone. but usually their behavior has a reliable pattern & leaves people feeling hurt and abandoned and just generally used & they’ll just keep doing it if they’re allowed to still have friends or make their art or whatever. smh

I hate to be a stickler for spelling but there are memes being reblogged that misspell sweetie and instead say sweaty or sweatie. Sweetie and sweaty are very much not the same. Even non-native speakers now the difference.

Know* (sorry I couldn’t resist given that this was about spelling :P )

I’m not sure if this is coming out of general frustration or not knowing. I generally try to avoid gifsets that have spelling errors. But I’m going to go out on a limb and say the one you might be talking about is of Lillian and Kara and Lillian is calling Kara sweaty. In this case it is an intentional misspelling. It is a tumblr thing that when you find someone is annoying you or you dislike someone you refer to them as sweaty instead of sweetie. It is meant for it to add another layer of insult. I also see hunty instead of hunny or honey.

Hej! Sorry if it maybe sounds weird but.. how do you get the color of the skin with coloring pencils? I know it varies from skin to skin obv but whatever combination of red/brown/pink/ochre i try it never looks natural?

Halloj! No worries, I’ve been through the problem too.

I generally just use a light pink to accentuate areas that tend accumulate blood, like the cheeks, nose and ears (fingers and knuckles too) on lighter skintones, and a touch of scarlet red if it’s really flushed. If there’s a more marked shadow I use a burnt ochre. For warmer skintones, I use the burnt ochre more instead of the pink. For darker skintones I use a walnut brown, with the burnt ochre for warmth. But I also think the fact that the paper I use is slightly yellow helps make it look more lifelike with less effort, since a pure white background can make the colors appear too chilly. Something that helps make a drawing look more “realistic” too is to make sure to find and accentuate the core shadows rather than shading uniformly. Hope that helps!

Hhey i;;ms o so sorrry but cabn you pleas e make t he ccrytype thingy more ranmdom,,,, waffles XD,,,,

Actually, making it more random would ruin the linguistic integrity!

At it’s core, crytype-ifier tries to mimic the act of intentionally making your text look garbled in a very particular way. It’s a randomized process that tries to mimic the non-randomized process of trying to do a pseudo-randomized process. 

“waffles XD” sort of speak is also a pseudo-random mimicry, but from a different origin and with a completely different linguistic pattern. It also reminds me of the dark ages, when the Invader Zim fandom reigned strong on the internet, which led me to discover the news of the upcoming movie, and now I must prepare to run into the woods and live as a hermit, in attempt to escape my guilty nostalgia and the reboot of that horrifying fandom.

(I should also add that I’ve noticed that the crytyping meme has seemed to diverge into a general language game, where folks are just using the generator to translate funny copypasta. I don’t mind it in theory, but please note that there is pertinent discourse about it.)

I imagine when Cecil is arguing with someone he just shouts “AND NOW THE WEATHER” and the other person just has to stand there in exasperated silence and wait it out while Cecil glares at them
