Love your art, you make the best Tracer! I was woundering what you thought about Blizzard releasing more about Widowmaker on her Odette and Odile skin? " For much of her life, Amelie Lacroix was better known as an accomplished ballet dancer in paris."

Thank you~ :) I’m happy about the responses to my Tracers…but I really hope I can also do JUSTICE (/Pharah voice) to each character that I end up drawing~ ^^ 

I’m thrilled that Blizzard released more backstory on Amélie! (I even happily freaked out about it on twitter when the news came out haha ^^) It was a popular fan headcanon that was going around before and one that I really liked personally…so I’m glad that Blizzard has now made it canon! I hope they reveal more new details about her soon.

Knowing that Amélie was a ballet dancer “for much of her life” made me imagine her a lot more clearly too, like her posture, her movements, her facial expressions, also the discipline and focus that comes with being a dancer…

Her character design as Widowmaker is very much “classic femme fatale” but now it’s interesting to think about how that image can overlap with one of a professional ballerina. Being seriously dedicated to a physical activity really affects how a person carries them self. So I think this new info about Amélie being a ballet dancer is going to be very helpful inspiration for future drawings! ^^

I don't know how I feel now... Katie is a serie regular I adore Lena and I would love to explore more of her story besides that Katie has a 3 year contract and I think she's great good for her but I think she deserves something better and I'm afraid the cw will start ruining her character as they have done w/ Kara and I have to eat all the toxic scenes just to see Lena (bc I want to support Katie) and that conflicts me bc i want to support Katie but I don't want to support toxic Karamel :/

I understand your frustration believe me. Im hoping with all of my heart that the writers will wake up and realize that karamel is toxic af. I noticed that all the katie centric episodes have minimum mon el so here is to hoping. I was actually giving up on the show until the news came out and I would def watch for her. lets just hope for the best. 

March 22 run - 8.7 miles. Two days in a row of running in shorts and then tonight hits. Right before I headed out, the news said that there were windchill warnings. Ah, spring in New England.

Should I be concerned that several times during recent runs I’ve checked my watch only to see that I’m 6.66 miles in? (Cue Van Halen - “Running With The Devil!”)

Numbers and corral assignments for Cherry Blossom came out today. The fiancée and I are both in the 1300s. Anyone know if that gets us in the yellow or red corral?

Ten minutes ago I saw you
I looked up when you came through the door
My head started reeling,
You gave me the feeling
The room had no ceiling or floor
Ten minutes ago I met you
And we murmured our how-do-you-do’s
I wanted to ring out the bells
And fling out my arms
And to sing out the news,

“I have found her! She’s an angel, with the dust of the stars in her eyes!”

After 1073 days of the incident, Sewol ferry is finally being lifted up from the bottom of the ocean. Probably the worst incident that ever happened in Korean history, due to the fact that everyone in the ferry could have been easily rescued.

While this ferry was sinking for few hours, we were all watching on the news thinking everyone will be saved. In fact, we all thought many of them had been already saved because there were not so many people outside of the ferry, when it was live on the news. Turned out, everyone in the ferry was just waiting inside (some were taking videos of how titled it was getting, making fun of the situations, taking pictures etc…) because they were told to stay where they were. As a result, they all sunk with the ferry. Only the people who did not listen to the announcements and jumped in the water, were saved by the nearby fishers and few coastguards.

Majority of 300 passengers who died here, were high school students who were on their way to Jeju island for their annual field trip. As of today, 9 people are still missing, and ferry wasn’t able to be lifted until now for … some obvious yet unclear reasons……

Okay since tumblr is extremely america-centric we’re only hearing about trump but this post is there for me to freak out about Dutch Trump: 

^^ that guy. Geert Wilders. Far right asshole first class.

The elections are in march 2017 and he is biggest in the polls. Which makes me extremely scared. A few reasons:

  • He wants to go out of the EU, and get rid of the euro (plain bad idea)
  • Extremely islamophobic
  • Wants to ban certain newspapers. Banning ideas: Horrible Sign #1
  • ‘’Do you want more or less morrocans?’’ [crowd chants ‘’less, less, less-’’] (he is being prosecuted for hate speech now, mostly for this and his comments about islam: ‘’cleansing’’ the N of muslims, banning the Koran etc.)
  • Was literally not let into australia to give his speech. Thats how bad he is.
  • Anti-refugee

Can other Dutch people add to this list?

Where is my “Lena buys a small NC newspaper, and has them offer Kara a job as a reporter, because she feels like it’s her fault that Kara lost her job, but wants to keep it all under wraps. And Kara comes bounding into her office all excited like “oh my god, I can’t believe I got a new job so quickly, and it’s even better pay than at Catco, and I get to be an actual junior reporter and one of the senior guys is mentoring me and they say I can write about what ever I am passionate about” and Lena is like “oh rly?” and is just so happy that Kara is happy and doesn’t want anything in return, but to get to support her friend (oh and you know, casually encourages the newspaper to give Kara assignments that require her to interview Lena on a regular basis)” fic?

It’s only a few hours happened in 2017 in my place and we’ve already been blessed with some new/old Seb’s video. Thank you, Shim

The problem with Out’s profile of Milo Yiannopoulos 

Some journalists think their job is simply to push “facts” out into the world and see what happens. They lob grenades over the editorial wall and don’t think they’re responsible for the explosion on the other side.

This is what gay magazine Out did Wednesday, when it published a pretentious profile of Milo Yiannopoulos: “Send in the clown: Internet supervillain Milo doesn’t care that you hate him.”

The piece has rightfully led Out readers and commenters to ask: Why is a gay, progressive magazine showering such attention on one of the culture’s most toxic trolls? 

Rather than take the white nationalist icon to task, Out treated Yiannopoulos to a lifestyle piece. The author follows Yiannopoulos as he runs errands, including a trip to the barber and tailor, while the provocateur spouts racist and anti-trans garbage unchallenged. (Opinion)

Model Hanne Gaby Odiele comes out as intersex
Odiele is speaking out to raise awareness of harmful and unneeded surgeries intersex kids often endure without their consent.

Internationally-recognized fashion model Hanne Gaby Odiele has just become one of the most famous intersex public figures. 

Odiele, 29, came out as intersex in an interview with USA Today. She will be partnering with the advocacy group interACT Advocates for Intersex Youth to raise awareness about the humans rights violations, such as nonconsensual genital surgeries, that intersex babies and children often undergo. 

Odiele was one of those children. She was born with an intersex trait known as Androgen Insensitivity Syndrome (AIS) in which a woman has XY chromosomes more typically found in men. She also had internal, undescended testes, and her parents were told that if she did not have her testicles removed, “I might develop cancer and I would not develop as a normal, female girl,” she says.

At 10, she had surgery to remove her testes, an experience she could barely process at the time. “I knew at one point after the surgery I could not have kids, I was not having my period. I knew something was wrong with me.”

At 18, Odiele — whose modeling career took root when she was discovered a year earlier at a music festival in Belgium — underwent an equally distressing procedure in the form of vaginal reconstructive surgery.

“It’s not that big of a deal being intersex,” she says. But the anguish of the two surgeries is an issue for her that is still troubling today. “If they were just honest from the beginning… It became a trauma because of what they did.”

Wow. This is a gripping story – one that so many people share – and she has an incredible platform to tell it. Congratulations on sharing this with the world, Hanne, and thank you for paying it forward.
