Okay, so this one has been in my drafts since…. November?? idk but I don’t have any new (finished) fanart to show you so have this at least ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
For some reason Shutora looks different each time I draw her and I never found out why?? Like it should be pretty easy to draw her since she looks pretty much like a smol Levy but without curly locks and yet I still manage to screw it up?? amazing
For me the world was much too small. Some said I can’t control my fate. I only ever had my father in my life, I hope I’m not too late, For I’ll never shake away the pain If you are gone but I’m still here. I let you steal into my open, lonely heart It’s more than I can bear.
But I swear I’ll never leave you Even though I went away. I will always love you, hold you, kiss you, Save you, come what may. Living in a golden tower, Laughter heard beyond the doors, I swear to you I’ll walk back in To be with you for evermore.
I’ll conquer all the trials of love, Darkness will flee before the light. You believe my heart to be beyond your reach? It’s never out of sight.
So I swear I’ll never leave you And I’ll never fade from view. This love will inspire us, Be a part of everything we do. Living in a golden tower, Laughter heard beyond the doors, I swear to you I’ll walk right in. These long, dark nights will have an end. Watch the light come pouring in. I’ll love you for evermore!
I wrote this a couple days ago because I was wondering what Belle might have been thinking as she rode back to the castle to stop the mob. We know she cared about the Beast obviously, but I think while she was on that ride she was beginning to understand just how deeply she cared for him. So I listened to “Evermore” about thirty times in a row while writing out a version of the song that I think Belle would sing as she goes to try and stop the mob. Hope you guys like it!
Some people have expressed wishing to do a recording of this version of the song, which flatters me to no end and would be freaking awesome. All I ask is that you credit me with the creation of this version and also Alan Menken and Tim Rice for the original song. Thanks so much!
Yo everyone. So let’s talk about colorism. The definition: “Skin color is only one mechanism used to assign individuals to a racial category, but race is the set of beliefs and assumptions assigned to that category. Racism is the dependence of social status on the social meaning attached to race; colorism is the dependence of social status on skin color alone. In order for a form of discrimination to be considered colorism, differential treatment must not result from racial categorization, but from the social values associated with skin color.”
So why is colorism important?
Well in the kpop fandom whitewashed pictures of your biases aren’t new. If you don’t know why people make a fuss about whitewashed pictures here’s why.
The history behind colorism in China for example is the fact that richer people tended to stay indoors and in shade (so of course they’d have paler skin) the poor worked for long hours in the sun outside (making them darker skinned). This historical way of discrimination dates back from dynastic eras. This way of discrimination still goes on today. In kpop and Asian media especially. Many examples come to mind when I think of idols who usually get picked on because of their darker skin: Twice’s Tzuyu, Vixx’s N, Girl’s Day’s Hyeri, BAP’s Daehyun, BTS’s Jhope and Taehyung and Exo’s Kai are just a few.
Usually idol’s look physically uncomfortable when their skin color is mentioned. These idols continuously get shamed and picked on by other people. The problem is: DARK SKIN ISN’T BAD. DARK SKIN DOES NOT INHERENTLY MAKE YOU OR ANYONE ELSE A BAD PERSON. NO ONE SHOULD FEEL BAD ABOUT THEIR SKIN TONE. Dark skin does not make you ugly. We need to stop this kind of toxic mentality where people obsess over having whiter skin and bleach their skin or sometimes even use chemical creams to get the paler skin. Paler skin does not equate to anyone’s value. SKIN COLOR DOES NOT EQUAL A PERSON’S VALUE.
Colorism is so real in Asian culture as well as others. We need to change this.
Today is both great and also sad for you. Today’s the day you’re shooting the last scene for the last episode of this drama you’ve been apart of as one of the lead roles. You’re co-star, Byun Baekhyun. Being able to work with someone like him has been amazing from start to now, but it hasn’t gone exactly as you planned it to.
Another old-ish (finished, at least) thing for an AU that I thought about a lot but never drew out. More info under the cut again, but it got super long so:
TL;DR: Ross, Trott, and Smith were abducted together as teenagers but don’t remember/believe it until they coincidentally (or not) run into each other years later - all working for the FBI - and realize they have matching nightmares, matching scars, matching implants in their necks.
