WHY DID NO ONE EVER TELL ME THAT THE GUY WHO MADE “DON’T STAY IN SCHOOL” MADE A SONG WITH CRY AND MINX?? ARE YOU SHITTING ME THIS SOUNDS SO FUCKING SICK THEY BOTH SOUND SO GOOD IM ACTUALLY CRYING REAL TEARS I AM S C REM ANING
And not just that like it’s a really good song??? About real shit?? God pls, guys, just listen to this song especially if you’re in a tight spot where you haven’t come out to your family and are struggling with how they might react (or with how you know they will react). Seriously, this is a video with a fucking strong af message and holy shit, just know that there are so many people out there who just want you to be you and you will get that chance. Just hold on and you will get there. Okay? We love you.
EDIT: BUT IS THAT CRY SCREAMING “HOLD ON” I’ M????
I wanted to share this because I feel many people need to hear this, just as I do.
I know you may feel alone and it may not be safe for you to come out to your friends and family right now but there is a large community of people out there who are willing to accept and support you. It’s going to be okay. Just hang in there, okay?
I have been seriously overdosing on the Jem and the Holograms comic book, and it’s gotten me back into rewatching the series. Even though I grew up with the original show, I love the new comic version more. The characters are just so fantastic and things which bugged me in the tv show have either been fixed or removed (for example, IDW Comic Rio isn’t a cheating jerkwad! He is a precious cinnamon roll!)
I am going crazy waiting for my latest issue to arrive (Dark Jem! Weee!) so in the meantime I decided to amuse myself by reimagining The Stingers and what they would be like in the IDW universe. I updated their looks by matching them with designers who I think they paired best with. Riot is wearing Alexander McQueen, Minx is in a John Galliano inspired suit, and Rapture is rocking a variant of a Givenchy runway look.
Because I didn’t want to limit myself too much, I only kept their names and the Black/Yellow color theme. I came up with the ages, body types, height, and their loves/hates/guilty pleasures/secrets all directly correlate to one of my real life friends in some way or pulls from my long held headcanons. (like Riot; Every single army brat I know is a huge geek in some way, shape, or form, so it only stands to reason that he is one too.)
I have fleshed out biographies for all three, but I’m just leaving their mini-bios for now.
