look at all that effort i (didn't) put into this

anonymous asked:

@marinashutup just posted about the Laci video and the response to it and made some points my privileged ass didn't see initially, I'm about to rewatch her video with that perspective to see how I feel about it now but it might be worth having a look if you're still interested in the vid (marina tagged that she might delete it later)

I don’t know if I can bring myself to watch it. I’m really, really tired of being told on all sides why I need to argue with purple or why I need to try and make people see, why I need to put tonnes of effort into conversations that, unlike Laci, I DON’T get paid for.

I have put in that effort, over and over. The thing about arguing with hatred is that hatred doesn’t feel the need to have a source.

So a guy can just say “men are more likely to be sexually aggressive because we are animals, we are chimpanzees, chimps are like that and it’s natural” I can’t just say “You’re a dingus, read a book” … So I spend hours pouring over reference material, creating citations, dedicating entirely too much time to studying the sexual mating habits of bonobos (territorial orgies, in case you were wondering, they settle their differences with consenting sex in order to tell a dude that he’s being lazy and he’s wrong.

And what is my reward? Because most of the time they don’t listen.

And like, don’t get me wrong, I argue when I want to but it’s NOT usually to change the mind of the people I am debating with, is to spread the information to the people who will reblog me, to arm THEM with the information so THEY know and if they see it come up they might feel more equipped to deal.

So anyone even vaguely implying that I am obligated to do this, that I have to open myself up to “people with different opinions” pisses me off.

My life is FULL of people with “different opinions” and I’m white, so it would be a fuck of a LOT worse if I wasn’t.

Laci is white and thin and successful and this stuff gives her a cushion against the reality that everyone else deals with.

I haven’t watched the video but Marina’s usually very… Smart and insightful and she tends to be pretty generous as a person towards other people, so if it’s pissed HER off then it would probably send me into a rage and I might be tempted to comment on a YouTube video, which NEVER leads me anywhere positive.

Long rant was long.

I just have to say that your art is amazing! The effort you put into these characters - designs, scenarios, fusions - it's all incredible! Especially the human versions of their cars... Although I didn't notice Sasquatch there. Do you have any plans on showing us her humanized look? Just curious. Have a nice day :)

1. Thank you so much!  ^////^  That’s the sweetest thing I’ve heard all day, ahhh <3 <3

2. I’ve had the idea for Sasquatch in my head for a long time, but I never got around to actually doing art of her!  :D  She’s a big ol’ beaut.

“Give peace a chance and then if that ain’t workin’, kick ‘em in the nuts!” - Sasquatch at some point probably.

She’s a weird and contradictory mixture of aging motorcyclist, hippie and lumberjack, and she could probably lift Nine with one arm.  Jacob (AKA “Goat”) is her vintage and extremely souped-up chopper, which she occasionally takes her dates out on, to the kids’ general disgust.

…..she’s got really big feet.

Cate had drawn the symbol and placed all the items around. Now all that was left to do was light the candles and read the incantation. She was in her greenhouse across from the garden. Dressed in a light pink dress and her hair curled, she didn't really look like herself. It was like she was in a disguise. She sighed heavily, "I really really hope this works." After all the candles were lit, she stood to the side and read the words off.

Anti had been waiting for the moment where Cate would summon him. He asked Dark for some clothes and he provided. He was in some clean pants and shoes, along with a white dress shit and sharp black blazer. He had actually put an effort into making himself look presentable for the first time in… Well, forever. He looked like any regular guy.

He felt a tingling sensation as Cate began to summon him. He took in a deep breath and gently shook himself. “It’s showtime,” he sighed as he disappeared from the mind space and reappeared in the middle of the pentagram.

So that’s my entry for the @tokyoghoulbook contest

I don’t know if combining sketchy art and line art was a good idea haha

oh and also this is my favourite part of this

Harry was starting with surprise at every tiny thing that happened - bursts of air around their ankles and hair, a noise to their left, Louis flipping his hair out of his eyes.
“Mate.” Louis whispered to him over his shoulder. “Relax. It’s all fake.”

Niall drags a reluctant Louis to a haunted house, and he decides to look after the frightened curly haired boy who ended up next to him in line.

Anatomy is the main course of usually first year. Now that I look at it backwards it has been one of my favorites so far, because overall I enjoyed studying it a lot. If you are not really fan of it, don’t worry. I’ve learned this only after I passed the anatomy exam. :D

look at them they look so TV COUPLE OF 2015, right? lol that’s why you should go [VOTE] for these two deserving idiots right now haha

okay okay i know, it’s just a poll, that’s true.

but guys, colin really wants us to win. i mean, how cute is that (i’m voting for that alone)

and we really want that interview right? (i lied, i’m voting for this too)

here’s the thing, we were in the lead but we’ve been dropping reeeaalllyyy fast. so basically we just need to keep voting as much as we can for the next 10+ hours. (we can do this just for today!)

remember we are not just up against olicity (which are gr8 and dedicated peeps btw), we are also up against anti-cs people who will do EVERYTHING to make sure we don’t get in the next round.

how not okay is that? so how about a last day surge of votes for our otp? and if you’re the type who doesn’t feel like showing your love for your ship via voting like a crazy person (like me), just remember: COLIN RLY WANTS US TO WIN and every time you feel like not voting or tired from voting, just think about his sad face when he finds out we didn’t come through for him </3

and before you ignore this post, do it now, think about his sad face

anonymous asked:

Oh remember that show when Harry was sick and didn't sing because of his sore throat? Awn he was so sweet. He did everything he could to please the crowd. God, I love Harry so much.

Yeeees, omg I fell in love with him multiple times during that show, he was the CUTEST little bunny ever. He couldn’t sing at all, but tried so hard to make up for it, and ugh, he put so much effort into it. I MEAN, JUST LOOK AT WHAT HE DID DURING LITTLE THINGS 💕

Hai guys, remember when the Moon Pride video came out a few weeks after SMC started airing and we were all excited because it was so pretty and hopefully the way the series was going to head in that direction, but it didn't because TOEI, that's why? This is the kind of heartbreak that the news of the Infinity Arc being adapted in Crystal brought to me. Knowing our luck, they'll actually turn Haruka into a MAN because Naoko drew her super masculine in the first few chapters.

The Moon Pride video was totally misleading and everytime I watch it I can’t help but think how good Crystal would’ve looked if they had put money / effort into it.

I always thought that the scenes in this music video where from the actual show (they had two extra years to work on it after all) so I was really happy to see such gorgeous animation.

Unfortunately, Crystal didn’t turn out like that.

2015/5/5 I shall never forget this day *marks calender*

thank you ALL FOR YOUR support and the effort you put into getting this win  - NO MATTER HOW SMALL!!! I’m SO PROUD of our fandom right now!

anonymous asked:

I didn't know who to ask but if there were twin time lords, would their regenerations all look a like?

I’d assume their regenerations would naturally be totally different, unless they put extra effort into trying to regenerate to look the same. Not something I think the series has ever actually covered.
