incomplete masterpost of webseries containing girls who like girls

this is companion post to this gifset, which I made mostly because I wanted to make a gifset with the lyrics to Hayley Kiyoko’s girls like girls, but also because I feel like a lot of people don’t know that there’s a ton of webseries out there with pretty great representation of queer female characters that you can watch (mostly) for free online, so this is basically just to let people know about them. I’ve also included another five webseries that I wasn’t able to use in the gifset

(some of these also have other lgbtq+ representation, but my requirement for including shows in this post was that they have at least one female character who is lgbtq+)

already complete

Two best friends living in a small town, trying to figure themselves out. Kylie Sparks (kyliesparks27) plays Esther - especially in the second season, Esther’s storyline revolves around coming to terms with her identity and telling her best friend Zelda that she thinks she’s gay. (squaresvilleseries)

Comedy about a couple who are forced to live together after they break up until their lease runs out.  (thegaywomenchannel)

Sci-fi about teenage girls with superpowers. (wonderly)

This is a series made in and set in Quebec, so it’s in French, but there are English subtitles! Focuses on group of young lesbian and bi women and their relationships.

An adaptation of Little Women - I haven’t actually watched this, but I follow a lot of people who have and I’ve heard good things. If I recall correctly, it has a canonically bi/pan character as well as a canonically asexual character. (themarchfamilyletters)

currently posting new episodes

An adaptation of J. Sheridan LeFanu’s novella of the same name, that starts with a girl in a strange university who is determined to find her missing roommate. (carmillaseries)

Inspired by the Shakespeare play ‘Love’s Labours Lost’. It’s also a sequel to Nothing Much to Do, and adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing, so you might want to watch that first. (It’s quite a while before Paige and Chelsea are introduced, but there are a couple of other queer characters before that - Hero’s parents, although they never appear on screen; and Pedro/Peter and Balthazar)  (thecandlewasters)

A college girl, Alice, tries to live her life according to classic novels and document it in videos. Her roommate, Cara, and Cara’s girlfriend Lily end up getting wound up in Alice’s project. (classic-alice)

shows that haven’t been released yet but that have confirmed queer female characters

“Yesterday, Sü came out as a trans woman. Today, she’s unemployed and sleeping on her ex’s couch. A transgender fantasy-comedy series.” (from the kickstarter page)

This is actually a TV show, but I think it might also be available to watch online (at least to kickstarter backers), so I’m counting it as a webseries. (watchtheswitch)

“A new LGBTQ+ webseries about dates, mates, and faking out the government.” (from the kickstarter page) Two roommates pretend to be married so that one of them won’t get deported. Created by the wonderful Kaitlyn Alexander (kbearluna), who you might recognise from their role as LaFontaine in Carmilla. (coupleish)

Please feel free to add any webseries that you find to this list or message me to let me know about them!

I’M IN CANADA AND I’M GOING TO FANEXPO

I already have so many things to say and it’s only been two days. I will start posting comics and decent quality doodles once I’m out of the hotel I’m currently living in. I don’t have a scanner or a place yet so, those photos of drawings is all I can offer for now!

Anyway..

I’M GOING TO FANEXPO.

I wanted to do a little post because a lot of you asked about it. So, yes, I’m going, and I’ll be here every day! Yay!

If you are looking for me, I’ll probably be wearing my orange hoodie, but since it’s really, really hot here in Toronto, I might just wear a tank top, button up etc

I will have a little sketch book with me to be able to draw you quick little doodles if you ask for one (don’t be afraid to!). 

Depending if I’m chilling on the floor/sitting somewhere or if I’m standing in the middle of an alley ; I might not be able to sketch something.. but I’ll try anyway.If I’m chilling I’ll probably even use watercolor!

I am very excited to meet some of you, please recall that English isn’t my first language so I might stutter a lot and I’m not really articulate. :D

PSA: If you hear someone randomly screaming “YOU ARE A WANKER NUMBER 9″, it’s just me announcing my position.

I think that’s all…

SEE YOU THERE! ♥

Tips for Studying History!

I don’t see a lot of posts about how to effectively study for history classes, so I’m going to give it a shot! Warning: long post coming up!

  • Practice identifying the significance of something. The entire point of history is to learn the significance of different events and people. I guarantee that at some point you will be asked to state the significance, which is where this comes in handy. Also, knowing how to do this will vastly improve your essays.
  • Use timelines. Even if your teacher doesn’t make it mandatory to know dates, you should understand the order that major events happen. I will either write out a timeline or order my cue cards in the order they belong in after studying. Also, if your teacher does mark dates, you can at least be sure you know the decade it happened in even if you don’t know the full year.
  • Write extremely thorough notes. In some classes, like math, if you get something really well, you can kind of relax on the depth of your notes. I do not recommend this in history! Write down everything that seems important: names, dates, symbols, fun facts. The more you know, the easier it is to get full marks on a test without bullshitting.
  • Don’t rely on crash courses or internet research while studying. Your teacher taught you what they want you to know. While watching a crash course video might  be a good way to start preparing for a course while on summer vacation, it is not an effective way to study for a test. The information in the video is not what you were taught in class, so it won’t be that helpful. Internet research is the same – you can easily find dates and locations, but the specific information taught in class can only be found in your personal notes.
  • Talk to people in the class. Some things in history are open to interpretation. A good way to get lots of opinions and viewpoints on a certain subject is to hold a study group and discuss the material. You guys can also help each other remember small details from the notes. Certain things will just stick in your brain while others won’t, so reviewing the notes with other students is a really good way to make sure you aren’t missing anything.
  • Write essay outlines. In a history class, you will probably be writing a lot of essays. So many of my friends have massive problems with history essays because they don’t organize them prior to writing. If you just start talking about an event and don’t know where to go next, you’re going to have a total trainwreck. Organize your thoughts!! Plan what you are going to write!! It doesn’t take that long and it will save your life every time you write an essay.
  • Read “Politics and the English Langauge” by George Orwell.
  • Learn how to write footnotes manually. Writing footnotes and formatting your paper yourself isn’t that hard to do. It will help you out a lot when Word isn’t working or something goes wrong with the formatting feature.
  • Be an expert during presentations. If you are doing a presentation, be an absolute expert in the topic. Try not to read from any notes and be sure that you can answer any questions the class or teacher might have. Presentations are a good way to boost your mark, so try and be super knowledgeable and impress your teacher.
  • Learn how to write a thesis. If you’re writing an essay, your thesis should be clear. In high school, you can usually figure out what your thesis should be by figuring out what the main question you’re trying to answer is, then answering it. Make sure that your answer is focusing on just one viewpoint, not somewhere in the middle. And, ask a teacher or friend to look at your thesis before you start writing!

This is all I can think of for the time being, but I might add more later. Or message me if you have other ideas you think I should add to my list!

Now available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4

Please note these Patch Notes have some inaccuracies that are currently being updated by Bioware. Thus not all fixes are actually available or functional. However both the wardrobe and Golden Nug updates are available in this patch; while the Untold Relics of Thedas update is unknown to be true or not.

Dragon Age: Inquisition’s Patch 10 finally adds in new wardrobes for the Inquisitor to wear in Skyhold. No matter if they are having drinks with a friend after a dragon hunt or cuddling on the couch with a beloved lover, your Inquisitor can now look fashionable in something other than their pjs (although the grey pajamas are still available for those who loved it).

There are also new artifacts to discover, the relics chosen as the winners to Bioware’s Untold Relics of Thedas contest are now hidden within the game. Though it is up to you to find out where they lie, be it a deep dark cavern or tucked away in an abandoned Temple who knows.

The last major update is the Golden Nug statue. Simply touching this statue will upload schematic, weapons, armors, and even codices from your playthrough for your newest Inquisitor’s to enjoy. Allowing for every single one of your Inquisitors to have the highest, rarest grade equipment in the game from the very start of Haven onward. Though I’d suggest using responsibly and sparingly, otherwise the game could prove to be no more than one hit kills and speed runs.

Updated 3DS Hack Semi-Visual Guide

So very recently we have discovered that all 3DS models and firmwares can be hacked! I’ve seen a few guides around, and I used them myself to help me figure out how to hack my updated 3DS XL, and make this guide. You can find the other guides in my reference tag. This will be a very long, picture guide on how I got the hacks to work for me! I use Windows, so I don’t know if these steps would apply for a Mac computer!

You will need a computer and an SD card reader!

HEARTS LEFT BLEEDING (18/18)

During an ambush gone wrong for outlaw Emma Swan, she meets a young Regina, on her way to an arranged marriage to the king. A friendship blossoms between them even as Regina begins to fall to dark magic and both are forced to make choices about who they’re going to be- to each other and to themselves- and where they can possibly go from there.

HEARTS AWAKE (3/3)

In one realm, Regina struggles to hold onto her son and make peace with her past. In another, Emma struggles. An interlude after Hearts Left Bleeding spanning the years until they meet again.

HEARTLINES (20/20)

Emma and Regina are reunited at last, but at what cost? And with a scheming witch from Regina’s past targeting her and mysteries and manipulations unraveling around them, only one thing is clear: not everyone will survive this with their hearts intact.

Snow takes in a ragged breath. “Something happened in between Pan’s curse and this morning. Something I can’t remember.”

“Is that why Emma is in my kitchen trying to kill me?” Regina asks wryly.

HEART IN TANDEM (1/1)

It’s just a courtroom wedding for practical reasons. They aren’t getting married. It’s not a big deal. (Except it kind of is. You don’t spend this long fighting for each other without everything meaning too much.)
