natural processes

Is work stressing you out, Dark? I'm sorry😥

“It ebs and flows as it should. It’s a natural process, to be over-piled with paperwork and then receive a few relaxing moments.”

Dark bent a hand behind the length of his neck, where one could see his thumb rolling around in circles against the taunt expanse of his skin. Rummaging about in his spot to gain a comfortable angle, he finally provided a tense, caked smile that told too little.

“I would not state that I am stressed. Stress is a sensation I rarely feel. I am simply busy, it keeps my mind at work and allows the days and nights to pass by at a quicker pace. I’m glad for good work, and despite what many people may say, I actually do enjoy some paperwork.”

In March of 1907, Congress passed the Expatriation Act, which decreed, among other things, that U.S. women who married non-citizens were no longer Americans. If their husband later became a naturalized citizen, they could go through the naturalization process to regain citizenship.

But none of these rules applied to American men when they chose a spouse.

Character concept for a comic project I’m working on (not Floating World); started painting it for fun and then I finished it? Used a photo I found here on Tumblr for initial color reference, but I can’t find the image now D: a process GIF will be up soon as well! 

Halloween is the most important day of the year. It’s that one day on the Georgian calendar where you’re allowed to go around terrifying children and not be branded a psychopath.

“I have no qualms about it at all. I don’t see any difference between being stark naked or fully dressed–-if it’s part of the job and it’s done with meaning and intention. I honestly don’t understand the big fuss made over nudity and sex in films. It’s silly. On TV, the children can watch people murdering each other, which is a very unnatural thing, but they can’t watch two people in the very natural process of making love. Now, really, that doesn’t make any sense, does it?”
