honestly i'm not even a hellenic polytheist or even a spiritual person at all, but whenever i see dionysus described as just "the god of wine" i get 10 years off my lifespan cuz honestly wine is basically just a tool to his thing about liberation and spiritual ecstasy like "god of wine" just feels so reductive for a deity thats so important and represents something so rich within greek culture
i can relate!! i live with my lady dio close in my heart always, and wine is important, yes, but its more than just a drink and dionysus was more than just the fool who went around getting turnt all the time (i mean, i doubt they’d be entirely innocent of that, but it goes deeper than just the alcohol)
dionysus is a god of a certain kind of joy and freedom. the god of laughter, the god of tragedy and comedy through the power of drama… this is human ecstasy. this is that which humans call divine that is allowed to be felt by humans. dionysus is less party god, and more pleasure god. the pleasure of freedom - from our oppressors, from our expectations, from ourselves.
like…. im gettin really excitable about this haha! basically, i love dionysus, my lord and lady, goddess and god. i probably worship them a bit differently than most people, and im sure many people think im a total whackjob (i do, too, so i understand), but i think most people that know her and love her can agree that dionysus is a god of wine, but is also so much more than just what those words appear to mean.
God today has been a good day but also really exhausting bc a lot of stuff and walking going on (or well, more walking than I usually do haha) but!!! I have great life news that you can find in the tags below haha
I really like the Villainous shorts they are really funny check em out. And I love the characters in it Dr Flug is my favourite, I kinda was wondering what he would look like without a mask. So I drew my idea I like to think he accident messing up his face a bit also giving his eyes a cool colour and I didn’t know what to do with his hair colour so tried them all I personally like the black one the best. and also him with his mask on probably makes him more comfortable anyways.
so are you ever going to bring back the idea of making a YT channel? i think it'd be pretty cool if you did
The idea never left, haha! I really love a lot of Youtube stuff and it’s always seemed like a a fun thing to try out– mostly it’d be a matter of what kind of content people would want?
I know speedpaints would likely be the main things if I did get round to making a channel, plus maybe stuff like my vlog-video-thing from the last time I went to London ComicCon ‘cause that was super fun to make!– but suggestions would be hella appreciated from anybody else who might be interested if I made a channel :D
A blind eye eh? Maybe from a prior punishment from Charlie?
There is a little more to this, actually! I would obviously like to link Moriarty to my Wilson blog and with @arach-kid‘s mun we already agreed upon the two of them teaming up and sharing a camp and there is some bonding… however I wrote a post on why Wilson’s incompetent to be a proper father figure and this causes several problems between Webber and Wilson already. Since Wilson agreed to camp close to spider nests despite his honest hate for spider - with Webber and a spider hat that’s a great opportunity of defence against hounds and giants - there was always a chance things get out of control. Minor injuries with spiders were no news anyway.
However things don’t always go smoothly and Wilson loses his right eye to a spider warrior which isn’t under Webber’s control. Webber is blaming himself, of course, he feels like it was his responsibility that Mr Wilson got hurt like that and after convincing himself it’s for Mr Wilson’s best if he just leaves. Wilson wakes up for Webber not being around anymore, Chester, who’s loved by Webber greatly, is left behind, no notes, nothing. Wilson tries to track him down but the spider child is gone.
This is an additional source of Moriarty’s and Mason’s hate toward each other, by the way. Everything is just so wrong.
So you guys remember this sweet little Nonny from yesterday? And I told them I wanted to do more stories, just wasn’t sure when?
Well I wasn’t expecting to get inspiration so soon. I found another story that I want to do. It will be nothing like Sky & Mist’s though so i’m a little hesitant to do it. Well that and I’ve already got three freakin’ gameplays going on right now and where the heck am i going to find the time?! Why brain…why…
I might put up a synopsis post tonight or tomorrow to get a feel for what you guys think.
A few weeks ago I was toying with the idea of saving up to try and get some acrylic charms printed, and while that probably won’t be happening for a good while I DID draw out and color in some chibi designs for some of the Babylon gang (by which I mean all the Mesopotamian kiddos minus Gil). Yes, I tweaked Tiamat’s design to make it worksafe.
I don’t know if I WILL get them printed at some point, but the chibis are cute so whatever. If anyone’s interested in getting one if I DO print them, or have some other characters they want me to consider making charms of, hit me up. I want to try and give some of the less popular or merchandise-heavy F/GO characters some love after all. Also if y’all want to commission me to draw you one of these it’s $5 per full-color character. Just throwing that out there.
