let me tell you, i was having a really REALLY bad day like a month ago and i was scrolling through tumblr and someone had reblogged one of your Keith fanarts and it made me feel all giddy and wonderful bc it was so adorable ? and now every time i have a bad day i just scroll through your art tag and just stare for hours at like all of your Keith and Klance posts, so i just want to thank you for making me feel better and for being a wonderful artist and person ♥ hope you have a wonderful day!
oh my gosh that’s such a nice thing to say?? i’m gonna cry???
by all means, have more cute keiths as thanks for seriously making my whole week, anon
I feel like Rose and Nathaniel are really lowkey good friends- Rose is so sweet and supportive, she would totally bring Nath out of his shell and get him talking about his art! Especially with how happy she was with the rose that Mari drew in her journal in the webisode, I feel like Rose would really be enthusiastic about her artistic friends’ work!
Note: I edited the background I found from an ML episode (no idea which one again) so just remember all I drew and colored was the characters!
koogi needs a break and deserves all the love and support we can give her because it’s hard to make a living as an artist and churning out these long ass chapters each week is a very difficult thing for one person to do
for those who don’t know i actually hit post limit trying to reblog long exposure fanart/content to a new fanblog?? post limit is like 250 i think. thats SO MUCH STUFF YOU GUYS MAKE FOR ME WTF 💕
so that poll- the popular vote was actually to “keep everything on this blog”, but reading the responses i think “make a blog for fanart” had a better argument. some people can’t blacklist the “art for me” tag for various reasons, and felt my blog was getting a little cluttered/overwhelming with all the fanwork. while on the other side’s opinion, reblogging fanart here was good because it boosted lesser-known artists work to give them (heh) exposure
so i’m gonna try for a compromise
i made a blog specifically for fanart and other fan-made long exposure content:
…instead of reblogging fanart here from now on, it will be reblogged there. please follow that blog to continue seeing all the amazing fanart made by really sweet artists!!!!!
HOWEVER i will continue to reblog one piece of fanwork once a week as a sort of special feature! (”fanart feature fridays” maybe??) does that sound ok?? i’ll still tag it with “art for me” and “not my art” in case anyone wants to blacklist it (unless you’re on mobile- then you’re kinda out of luck sorry..)
I’m wondering if I should say anything about this (especially after a long, draining shift at work where two things went wrong – but those two things were enough to occupy me the whole entire night), but –
I just think it’s unfair that there have been callout posts for artists who have drawn Pharmercy in an offensive way, but have admitted their mistakes and have apologized for them.
It’s one thing to call them out if they didn’t. But the thing is, they owned up to their mistakes, and one of them is even reluctant to draw Pharmercy now because of it.
I just think Tumblr is too obsessed with being right and having this moral rectitude that’s personified in callout culture, to the point where even people who make simple mistakes are punished for them via death by crucifixion.
If you really want to help someone out, you’d engage with them one on one instead of getting thousands of people to shame them, and then smearing an entire subset of a fandom with the same brush, especially since there are members of that fandom who admit that there is a problem with racism, fetishism, whitewashing, etc. and have actively spoken out against it.
And in my case, I’ve even taken hits for it from members of my own fandom, and have lost people that I once considered friends because of it.
So yeah, Pharmercy fandom does have a problem with racism and bad portrayals of Fareeha, etc. And that should rightfully be discussed. Most of us are aware of this, and are trying our best to counteract it. But I do think it’s unfair to make callout posts for misguided artists who have made mistakes, and who have also apologized for them.
I know I shouldn’t respond to this kind of stuff, but by jove, we’re gonna have some Professor Layton Fandom Appreciation. Because, for all of its faults, I love the PL fandom.
1. Amazing Fanart.
We have just the right amount of fanart in the PL tag. Enough so that we get new art everyday, but not enough to completely flood the tag and overlook any artist. There’s art of fandom favourites and occasionally art of the lesser appreciated characters. Characters who Level 5 barely even gave a second glance. There are artists who can imitate the PL style fantastically, and others who bring their own interpretations to the series. All styles are valid and these artists will spend god-knows how many hours perfecting their drawings for our enjoyment.
2. Incredible Fanfiction.
I don’t see PL fanfiction posted as often, because let’s face it, it’s easier to look at a picture than it is to read through a block of text. If you see a fic posted, please consider reblogging it like you would a piece of art, because writing is an art as well. Even if you don’t comment or read they story, the writer would appreciate a reblog. We have so many great writers in this fandom. Writers who will type until their fingers bleed to produce that 40 chapter PL adventure fic. They’ll present character development, scenarios and pairings that the games only touch upon. Flora gets more development in the average oneshot that she does in three games.
3. In-depth Analysis.
There are those who don’t draw or write stories, but they still love this series and want to share their thoughts. So, we get in-depth reasoning that was lacking in the games. Where was it even hinted about Emmy’s ties to Bronev in the earlier games? Don’t worry - here’s a 1000 word essay one fan typed up because they love Emmy so much. Character headcanons. Family headcanons. Relationship headcanons. Fans will fill in the gaps that Level 5 left.
4. Hilarious memes.
Snails. Bill Hawks vs. Clive posts. Cinnamons rolls. Trash characters. A Layton musical… That’s barely scratching the surface. These memes have brought both so much absurdity and so much joy.
I know the Layton fandom has problems, especially considering its small size, but I’ll take it over the Steven Universe, Voltron or Sherlock fandoms, where ship-wars and hostility are the norm. Sure, we argue over Flora’s age or Clive’s crimes. But have you seen the state of some of those other fandoms? Whenever there’s drama, the Layton fandom usually works through it, or quietly ignores it until the hubbub has died down.

Fluff. Definitely fluff.
Gonna dedicate this to two lovely artists here on Tumblr this time around:
@lynngo-art again because a)srsly her design of Tela is spot on and her art is adorable go look and b)she mentioned proposals in her tags on that sketch and well… >3> ;;;
and also to @gangstagandalf for all the lovely compliments on the story and super awesome art for this series!! Go check both these awesome people out!! ♥ ♥
And also a big thanks to everyone who’s supported this work so far ♥ You guys are awesome. Enjoy the fluff! ♥
to go with Auntie! Please?”
really no trouble, Finn; I can give her a tour of the ship, at least.”
long as you promise to return her before
takeoff, Ryder. I fear you’re becoming as attached as Tela.”
jest, Pathfinder. Go on, Tela, have a look around. But stay close and listen to
Aria when she says it’s time to go.”
Father! Auntie! Up!”
kiddo, up we go. We’ll be done in about an hour, Finn, promise.”
much as Jaal enjoys the scene before him - watching the easy banter between his
brother and his beloved, seeing Aria scoop Tela up in a now-familiar motion,
settling her easily on her hip - it makes slipping away all the easier,
silently heading up into the Tempest and towards a specific storage room to the
left of the loading ramp.
has a specific, secret matter to take
care of, after all.
It’s kind of funny how Rose/Kanaya is one of the biggest ships in the Homestuck fandom with a majority of the big name artists in the fandom shipping it and regularly producing content of it yet people still claim erasure when people produce Grimdorks content like
Nobody is going to forget that Rosemary is canon overnight because someone had the audacity to ship something else. It’s always gonna be there. Constantly and consistently. Always.
This amalgamation of lines right here?
Does not un-do Rose Lalonde’s entire canonical marriage and is not part of some conspiracy to Heteronormify™ Rose Lalonde. It’s two fictional characters holding hands. Don’t like these two particular fictional characters holding hands? Block all tags relative to these two fictional characters holding hands instead of going on long winded rants about characters you don’t want to hold hands.
This has been my long winded rant about people ranting about characters they don’t want to hold hands.
