Every time I go to Michael’s (which is way too often) I always, for some reason, end up getting the same cashier when I check out. His name is Eric. He has undercut blonde hair. He has an upturned nose. He has brown eyes. He’s about the same height as me (I’m 5'6").
Every time I see him I try my hardest not to laugh and subsequently have to suppress the urge to say “Man, are you aware that you are the living version of an online comic’s protagonist?”
My gosh. If anyone has been watching dd/ga for the past 23 years they know that this is ridiculous and offensive to both of them. And pro tip to your anons who is clearly just one person: making DD look bad isn't going to make the guy of your choice better.
I wish I could say it’s just one anon, but I’ve seen a whole host of bloggers who have these anti-David beliefs, so unfortunately, there are a lot of people out there thinking like this. I’m not saying they’re my anons, but the ones who believe these things are from the same pool, in the very least. I get anons that sound fine in the first three quarters and then throw one line in at the end that’s so decidedly Date-hateful that it negates everything else they said before it. So it’s out there and there are way too many people going around believing he’s Hank, or some NY man-whore (yes, I had an anon call him that), or a poor choice for Gillian, or pretentious (and I can’t tell you how irritated reading that makes me, because intelligence does not equal pretentiousness and there are so many on the other side who are offended by his presentation), or some man who has no sense, no boundaries, no self-control, and no humanity.
Gillian and him are linked, and have said so, in many ways and at many times, themselves. She sees a lot in him to love, she sees a lot in him to praise, and for her to talk about him the way she has and to interact with him the way she does, obviously speaks volumes about how much he means to her.
so, i noticed that my human bill turned a year old this month (ayy same birth-month!) so I thought it would be funny and interesting to compare him to the first real drawing I ever made of him (theres more but they are all sketches and TERRIBLE) and OH BOY CHECK THIS OUT the guy changed a lot! I love it tho, it’s a good change and he went through a lot of that but I’m super at peace with where he is right now. I really wanna draw my AU as a comic now.
