another meme i won’t finish | animated movies [1/10] » the lion king
Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance, and respect all the creatures from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.

surprise! i still think about this fic from time to time and it’s been forever since i drew any jeanmarco for myself so here’s a quick sketch of my absolute favorite scene in c’est l’amour ♥

also kind of a gift to @kirschtrash ヾ(。・ω・)シ

it’s exhausting trying to accommodate everyone. you will run yourself ragged trying to please people. especially because people will look out for themselves and take and take and take from you until you have nothing left. because the average person isn’t looking out for you. so you have to look out for yourself. you have to set limits. you have to set boundaries. you have to have standards of what you will and will not do.

If we’re discussing Bitty’s family having reactions to his coming out slightly more nuanced than either “we already know and love and accept you” or “we no longer have a son, get out of our lives,”

Then for your consideration I present Suzanne as the loving-and-accepting-except-SHE-CANNOT-MANAGE-HER-ANXIETY mom when Bitty comes out.  Like, she cries for two hours when he tells them, then bakes Jack a pie.  Then cries some more.

“I love you, Dicky, it’s just that your life is going to be so HARD for you!”

“What if it ever gets out about you and Jack?  Oh honey, so many people will be against you!”

“I heard about this homophobic hate crime somewhere else and thought about you and cried, then called you up to tell you about it.”

“Make sure you don’t look too… provocative when you go out to Boston this weekend, okay, sweetie?  I want you to stay safe.”

Like, essentially loving, but she needs to STOP DUMPING THIS CRAP ON HER SON.  

I want a future where parents can pause in their grocery shopping and pick up a card for a child who just came out.

“We’re so glad you’re gay!” the rainbow-festooned front would say, and inside: “Thank you for trusting us. We love you so much.”

There would be categories, like “Birthday - From a Friend.” You could look under “Coming Out - Nonbinary - Humourous” and “Coming Out - Nonbinary - Sentimental”

There could be cards saying, “I’m proud to have you as my new son” and “Need me to introduce you to cute boys?” and “Since you’re my sister, there’s a lot of girl time we have to catch up on" and “I love you no matter where you fall on the rainbow.”

Coming out would be widely seen as an occasion for joy and celebration, and families would have cultural guides for how to react in a loving and supportive manner.

On Out of the Shadows

Mmkay, so I wrote a while ago about Heart of Thorns when it was released, so I thought eeeyyy why not scribble a bit about Out of the Shadows because the thoughts exist.  I’m bad at blogging sorry

Spoilers below, as per usual.  Also it got stupid long, so be warned.  And if you want to ask any further opinions or just chat about the new release (because I do love talking about the new stuff), just poke me.  Always down to chat. <3

“…And through every victory and every setback, I’ve insisted that change is never easy, and never quick; that we wouldn’t meet all of our challenges in one term, or one presidency, or even in one lifetime.

“[Hilary] knows that this is a big, diverse country, and that most issues are rarely black and white. That even when you’re 100 percent right, getting things done requires compromise. That democracy doesn’t work if we constantly demonize each other. She knows that for progress to happen, we have to listen to each other, see ourselves in each other, fight for our principles but also fight to find common ground, no matter how elusive that may seem.

“It can be frustrating, this business of democracy. Trust me, I know. Hillary knows, too. When the other side refuses to compromise, progress can stall. Supporters can grow impatient, and worry that you’re not trying hard enough; that you’ve maybe sold out.

“Look, Hillary’s got her share of critics. She’s been caricatured by the right and by some folks on the left; accused of everything you can imagine – and some things you can’t. But she knows that’s what happens when you’re under a microscope for 40 years. She knows she’s made mistakes, just like I have; just like we all do. That’s what happens when we try. That’s what happens when you’re the kind of citizen Teddy Roosevelt once described – not the timid souls who criticize from the sidelines, but someone ‘who is actually in the arena…who strives valiantly; who errs…[but] who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement.’

“Hillary Clinton is that woman in the arena. She’s been there for us – even if we haven’t always noticed. And if you’re serious about our democracy, you can’t afford to stay home just because she might not align with you on every issue. You’ve got to get in the arena with her, because democracy isn’t a spectator sport. America isn’t about “yes he will.” It’s about “yes we can.” And we’re going to carry Hillary to victory this fall, because that’s what the moment demands.”

- Barack Obama

Can you suggest any other blogs that make furniture as good as yours? I've basically downloaded all of your stuff lol, and I'm looking for more furniture. Thank you!

I am generally out of the loop when it comes to a lot of other creators since we are spread across many sites and countries, and come and go all the time. As for furniture “as good as mine” that’s a bit subjective as it depends on the person judging. I don’t download a lot of cc myself, generally I make what I need so there is little opportunity to look at others work. But saying that, ones that come to mind right off include:

@kiwisims4@soloriya@plumbobarchitect@aroundthesims, @saudade-sims4, @s-imagination, and so many more that my tired brain are probably forgetting. There really are just too many to remember. If you are after prolific creators, your best bet is TSR but I have a no-TSR rule because I really dislike the site setup and the lack of styles people provide.

What I do suggest is just look at cc finds blog like Lana’s over at @sssvitlans since she catches a lot of the cc being made here and abroad.

because it's like, self-depreciating humor but if it's not an asian person making the handsoap jokes it's racist because it's making fun of the pronunciation of a name from a language and culture they dont belong to (i'm lumping asians together bc ovw is a game created by north americans, who generally lump at least china, korea, and japan together as "asia," so i'm using the same context). the "bruder" joke is also bad, because it's making fun of the japanese-accented pronunciation of the word.

?????
It’s a meme. It’s literally a meme with poorly drawn hand puppets. I get what you’re saying with the “you suck” Korean thing. Absolutely. But tbh. Handsoap doesn’t sound like Hanzo. Sure it’s kinda similar but if you put them separately you couldn’t find the correlation. Handsoap is no where near the “you suck” thing in my opinion. And with the bruder thing, it has those meme words like “pls” and “hey it me”. If the entire point was to insult Asians, it would have made it clear like how most racist comics are. It’s literally just a meme.

Playing Pokemon Go and it’s weird bc sometimes I end up trying to capture something I do not need. Like, I already have twelve I have no use for this guy. But once I decide to capture him, I will keep throwing Pokeballs until I HAVE CAPTURED THAT FUCKER.

In other news, if I catch one more Geodude strictly for pride purposes, someone please remove my thumbs.

If your good friends give you constructive criticism, take it. The most valuable advice comes from friends who know you and hang around you. If they say you’re cheap, you might be cheap. If you’re being a dick, maybe you’re being a dick. Your friends are the one’s who slap you with a dose of reality, and they’re not doing it to be malicious, but because they’re looking out for you.

Today’s Look: You never learned much about the Regency period due to not reading Jane Austen, and from a costuming standpoint it’s not as exciting as the ones before or after. One day you find a shirt buried in your closet that suits the period, so you try out the look, and it is the most comfortable outfit you’ve ever worn.

“You want me to do what?” Loras looks at you like you’re out of your mind, trying to figure out if you’re serious about this whole thing or not.

“Help me break my brother out of the dungeons?”

“Are you out of your mind Y/N.”

“I…I’m sorry I shouldn’t have asked you, please don’t tell anyone.” It was a stupid idea but you were desperate and had no one else. The only one who was ever really there for you was Tyrion and you couldn’t ask him for help since he was the one who needed it.

Loras tilts his head and watches as your face changes into clear distress, “If I can’t tell anyone how do you expect me to help you?”

“You’re going to help?”

“Yes.” He smiles, running his fingers gently through your hair, “I’ll think of something, go back to your room.”



The sound of footsteps in the dark was audible everywhere. Someone had sounded the alarm and guards were running around in a haste, trying to figure out what exactly was going on.

You used the confusion to get to cell without being noticed and opened the door with the key you had previously stolen.

“What’s going on?” You heard Tyrions confused voice ringing through the small room.

“You’re breaking out of here.” You answer and laugh.

“I can’t believe it, you managed to break me out after all.”

“You’re not out yet I would wait with the praise until you’re actually safe.”

“Good point.”

You quickly make your way through the dark halls before everyone realizes that a false alarm had been sounded.

“There’s a ship waiting when you reach the end of this passage.”

“I don’t know what to say…”

“Nothing you should hurry.” You give your brother a tight hug and smile at him.

“I will miss you.” He says before he vanishes into the darkness.

Hi, I'm working on my Sonic oc and I was wondering if you had any advice for drawing an oc interacting with canon characters without them looking too out of place or unnatural?

Personally I think the main problem with OCs looking out of place is when they’re TOO over the top. You want your characters to match the world you’re putting them in. Sometimes people have a habit of making overcomplicated, multicolored, maxed-powered characters but then they don’t look like they belong at all with actual canon characters. I’ve done it too! I just had to learn to tone it back some.

I think you need a good balance of individuality as well as modesty when it comes to designing characters.
