posts of which i am proud

anonymous asked:

I’m sorry I know you’re going through a lot and eating disorders fucking suck. Trust me I know. But you shouldn’t be proud that you have 32k followers. You should be sad and horrified. I want you to keep posting it helps you and others but it’s not something to be happy about Please don’t brag about it.

I’m not proud that I have 32K followers. It actually makes me extremely upset that there’s that many people going through the same thing I am and knowing that there’s a whole lot more that aren’t even following me. I absolutely wasn’t bragging about it, just doing what the post said to do which was state how old my blog is and state how many followers I have. I’m sorry if it came off that way, but I absolutely am not proud of the number nor do I want anyone thinking that I am.

What is Work In Progress?

Good question.

Work In Progress is a series I write episodically and (used to) post every other Monday. It is set in a post-apocalyptic “utopia” in which several things go wrong all the time. I could say that there are several main characters, because there are, however the story mostly revolves around Periscope.

Anyways, if you like slice of life with no real conflict, characters that are presumably queer, and sarcastic scene direction, please read my work! I actually am a little bit proud of it and it’s a project that I spent two years working on the concept for, and am still actively updating! Please read it!

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted an original study photo, so here you go guys. I’m currently writing an assignment on the downfall of Soviet Russia which is so interesting but I’m procrastinating at the same time by learning Russian 🙃🙃but progress is progress and once this is done I can fully focus on my exams beginning in May. These are my LAST EVER EVER EXAMS and I am so excited about this because if anyone has seen my previous posts university was not the one for me and I just want to be proud of myself for getting through it and finishing. Anyway, expect to see a lot more of me and original study posts in the coming months, because I am getting my head down and I am PASSING MY DEGREE.

There’s such a weird fixation in media about “firsts”. Beauty and the Beast boasting disney’s “first gay scene” is the one I’m thinking about in particular, and Power Rangers with the “first gay superhero”, and in both cases it’s a blink and you’ll miss it thing, something that maintains plausible deniability of queerness within the film itself, but establishing explicit queerness in everything outside the film. We know Lefou is gay because the interview told us he was in disney’s first gay scene.

And most of these discussions of firsts devolve into which first is first. Bill gets announced as the first gay companion on doctor who, and then follows the argument of whether Jack counts as companion, whether he was the first pansexual companion while Bill is the first gay companion, whether Amy or Clara was ever canonically bisexual and should that be a factoring in calculating firsts as well. (I remember a similar argument going on when Martha was announced as the first black companion, and people were like “but Mickey?” And there’s definitely commentary waiting about contentious Firsts and characters of color, but my white ass has nothing incisive to offer on that front except the hope we are kinder and better towards Bill than we were towards Martha.) And meanwhile, here is Bill, a black gay female companion, and while that fact has definitely not gotten lost, it is still very very cool and good that she is the companion even if she is not the Absolute First.

The language of Firsts is everywhere when you start looking for it, the idea that this show/movie/video game is doing something New Never Before Done Whoa Look At The Unprecedented Gay. And when this trend worries me, it’s because:

1) it gives off a strong whiff of performative representation, where the representation isn’t as important as people knowing you’re doing it

1a) the corollary being that the emphasis on First First First makes me worried that creators are not interested in Second Third Fourth. That having had the First *spins wheel, throws dart* Lesbian Asian Marvel character (a guest star in three episodes of the Defenders, maybe fifteen minutes, every gif set celebrating her has the same three quotes because that’s all there is), they are now exempted from every having to write a Second Lesbian Asian Marvel character. Because they already did that. Didn’t you see the article in Entertainment Weekly? It was a very big deal.

2) the trend of press on the First Gay Thing tends to vastly outscale the actually gayness, which traps us in an endless loop of hype and disappointment (versus Dumbledoring where the gayness is revealed retroactively for a previously ambiguous character or relationship, and it’s a weird combination of vindication because you thought they might be gay, surprise because you didn’t expect them to be gay, and disappointment because why didn’t the work just say they were gay)

And this, even more than the rest of this post, is a personal grievance but 3) queer fandom has spent decades finding representation in subtext, in coding, in wishful thinking and disciplined literary analysis of the text. This whole First thing seems come with a subtext that every other character who had significant ambiguous relationships, was flamboyant or butch, was in anyway queercoded? Not queer. This here is the first gay thing, and we’re very brave for being the first to have done it. Gay characters must formally come out to count.

Putting aside explicitly queer characters (which exist! Which have a history that creators and fans are welcome to build upon instead of thinking they have to invent gay representation every time they launch a franchise), queer history and queer art has always entailed writing and reading in between the lines. Which requires there be lines. If the new trend is unwritten in text, out and proud in press, what does that offer? I’m happy that Explicitly Confirmed Queer is a thing that’s happening, I very much am, but if a gay child who has never read a think-piece cannot recognize themself in your Brave Unprecedented Gay Character because they didn’t read your interview with the av club, then what use is that character? What was the point? What have you actually contributed to us?

Ethan hit 300,000 subscribers!!

Ethan hit 300,000 subscribers! That’s a whole lot of amazing people in this amaizng community!

I am so incredibly proud of him, and I know everyone in this tag are too! I subscribed when the channel was around 40,000 (I just changed it because I went back and found the 50,000 video and it was posted after I subscribed oops). Which isn’t that long but still crazy because he’s already at 300,000.

Not only have I found an incredible inspiration, I also found more friends than I expected through this community. I met 2 from Nova Scotia, one from Minnesota, and a few others. Everyone in the community is so nice and sweet.

Ethan is one of the most helpful “escape routes” I have. He’s such an amazing person, and he always brings my mood up.

If Ethan happens to see this than I should say some stuff to him aha.

So, Ethan, congratulations on 300,000 subscribers, you definitely deserve it! You bring joy to so many people (me being one of them) and you should definitely keep doing what you’re doing. When you’re happy, it makes us happy. As long as you enjoy what you’re doing and you’re happy with it, don’t stop. Keep that beautiful smile on your face. Keep that adorable laughter flowing. Keep doing what you love.(I suck at being original but) like that painting I painted in that picture, you are my sunshine (and the reason I made butterscotch-cinnamon pie)I love you, we all love you. Thank you for everything you’ve done.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the inspiration to Georgi’s routines

It’s mentioned that Georgi’s short program is Carabosse from the Sleeping Beauty.. which indeed, is the villain in said fairytale.

But what Sleeping Beauty is his routine based off?

Matthew Bourne. Matthew Bourne’s Sleeping Beauty.

I mean look.

AND THE FREAKING JUMP

If you’re sitting there thinking that this is just coincidental and that i’m just going off on a random thing…

EXPLAIN THIS

I am pretty certain that his routine was based off this ballet. i think it’s just another nice addition to “Yuri on ice is based on reality stuff”

Sorry for the long post but i was proud when i saw this :3

Hey folks! I wanted to thank you all for being so kind and fun and thoughtful in response to the visual novel/game I’m working on. I’ve gotten tons of messages and questions that have really helped me to consider ways to make this game unique and inclusive. I’ve also been overwhelmed by how many folks have kindly offered to contribute their talents and assistance to this project.

I’ve made a little FAQ addressing some of the common questions I’ve gotten, so all this info can be in one place:

Which cryptids will be featured in the game?

I’m toning down my use of the word ‘cryptids’ in favor of ‘monsters’, since although these characters will be (pretty obviously) modeled after actual cryptids and creatures from folklore (black shuck, mothman, ghost deer, etc.), I’m taking some creative liberties with their designs and personas, and I don’t want folks to confuse my interpretation of these creatures with the versions of them that you see in cryptozoology. That said–you’ll have to wait and see!

Which platforms will the game be released on?  How much will it cost?

It’s too early in development to know for sure, but we’re hoping for a release on Steam and other sites like GOG and Itch (it’s being developed for Windows/Mac/Linux). We’re planning on releasing a free demo/teaser initially, and although we won’t know the price for the full game until it’s closer to being done, I want to keep the price low so that it’s accessible to everybody.

How far along is the game? When will it be released?

Currently, we’re working on getting a solid base storyline written, and completing a good chunk of the art assets and environment audio. I’m not revealing any release date right now; I want to give myself time to craft a quality story that you’ll enjoy and I can be proud of. When I have a better idea of the timeline, I’ll let everyone know!

How many people are involved in making this game?

There are just two of us right now! I’m in charge of artwork, writing, typography and design, and my very rad s/o is handling the sound design and code. As things progress we might add some other folks to the team!

Can I help create the game or donate money to the project?

When the game has a working rough build, we’ll be looking for testers/feedback/proofreaders and would love your help. I’ll be putting up applications for that when the time comes! I’ve also been blown away by folks willing to donate to help with the game; I’m in the process of setting up a Patreon where you can help support this project along with my other work, and in return you’ll get access to lots of exclusive updates, concept art, illustration tutorials, merch giveaways, and other neat stuff. ♥ I’ll make another post about that when it’s ready to go!

For anyone who enjoys my other artwork, but isn’t interested in the game—no worries! I’ll still be making lots of other illustrations while the game is in development. Feel free to blacklist my ‘monster visual novel’ tag if you just want to see my other content.

This is a big, exciting project for me, and it’s been motivating me to work outside of my comfort zone, which is really healthy and important since I suffer from such severe anxiety. Without all your kindness and enthusiasm I wouldn’t have had the courage to try something like this, and I want to make y’all proud. 

Thank you! ♥

Recently I found out about this post that mentioned content with external hyperlinks was never shown to other people on Tumblr. Given the low amount of notes in the previous post I made about my Black King cosplay, which had a link to Youtube, I decided to give it a try.

So here I am reposting these, because honestly, I’m very proud of this thing! This was a very, very fun convention with my sister (Night Elf Druid) and her fiance (Rogue). Let’s see if the the lack of a link actually does anything!

I Have Something To Tell You...

After seeing how everyone is coming together and spreading so much love, especially in the Jacksepticeye community, I’ve decided that today is the day… 

I have something to tell you guys…

I’ve wanted to say it for a while but I was worried about doing it… 

But I’m not so worried now and you guys are my friends, and so I think you should know this… Here goes… 

I’m asexual. At least I’m like 99.9999999999 (etc) % sure that I am. Yes, I have done a lot of research and reading about it to be sure, I didn’t want to rush to label myself. And the great thing about labels is that they can change. But this is what I identify as right now. And I’m proud to say it. I. Am. Ace. :D

So if you don’t accept aces and think they are invalid, unfollow me now please. But if you do accept me, then yay!! Thank you and I love you! ❤

This was pretty hard to post, but I thought that you guys wouldn’t hate me for being ace. You all seem too sweet for that and you’ve been so kind to me this far, which I’m very grateful for by the way :3

Announcement post over. Thank you for reading ^_^ ❤

What kind of YoI drunk are you?

Victor drunk:
- tipsy=naked
- emotional mess: his crush better like him back or he’s spending the entire night crying into his best friend’s shoulder and eating chocolate till his face is a disgusting mess.
- insists he can walk home only to drop on the floor the minute you let go of his arm. baby drunk. adorable. kind of annoying.

Chris drunk:
- you could have sworn he’s had two bottles of wine but… he seems sober?
- actually a terrifying superhuman being. this guy handles alcohol like a champ.
- he may seem sober and therefore reasonable, but this guy will still do all the drunk sleazy dancing, he just doesn’t need an excuse. PG18 warning for mature eros.

Yuuri drunk:
- like Victor, but worse, oh god… so much worse…
- jealous AF: stay away from this guy’s crush or you’re about to get invited to a dance off. and you will. not. win.
- somehow super talented? Alcohol brings out this drunk’s abilities and he’s going to display them for the world to see. Impressive, but you better not block the view to his crush, it’s all to win them. Ultimate notice-me-senpai.

Yurio drunk:
-lightweight. alcohol virgin. Getting this kid drunk is super easy but should you really? Deal with your conscience before proceeding.
- after his half glass of watered down rum and coke, this guy has 0 control over himself. Anything in his head is coming out of his mouth with no filter. Prepare to deal with mental scars, and probably some actual ones.
- then again after ten minutes he’ll be flat out on the floor so… not so dangerous after all. Angry kitty. Put him to bed with some aspirin and deal with your soul.

Phichit drunk:
- seems sweet but don’t be fooled: he’s here to have a good time. 
- drinking gets him competitive. He will win the drinking game. Even ones where there are no winning conditions. He will win.
- insta queen: half an hour in and this guy’s instagram floods with his drunk-ass self and his drunk-ass friends. Kind of magic though because there is no way of telling from his captions he just had eight shots of tequila.

Otabek drunk:
- you’ve never seen this guy let go. He was always a little intimidating, and rarely spoke. And then he’s drunk, and it’s like a different person is in the room.
- super lovely. Just lovely and friendly and warm. You never knew, but now it’s so obvious, that behind that cool reserved face hid a secret teddy bear. Becomes the world’s best hugger for as long as there’s vodka around.
- Probably drunk texts and is super embarrassed about it the next morning. If you get a text at 2am saying “I lvoe uyo”, be nice and don’t bring it up with him: sober him is dying inside, mainly about the grammar. Can’t make fun of this kind of drunk though, he’s the best.

JJ drunk:
- oh. my. god. Obnoxious. Avoid.
- he’s the frat boy you never wanted to party with. he’s the one yelling “CHUG” and painting JJ onto your mum’s couch with overconfidence and a sharpie.
- If you can’t avoid him and you’re a cold-ass killer, bring up his insecurities. He will have a breakdown and leave your party early, but he won’t show up to work the next day. or week. If you can handle the guilt though, do it.

Milla drunk:
- aka the best freaking night of your life. This girl is Fun. She’ll dance to all the terrible songs you secretly love and she knows all the words. You want to order the most clichéd, smutty drink on the list? This girl is right there with you. You want to hook up with that attractive stranger dancing by the speakers? She has your back, all the way.
- drunk mom. Holds your hair back while you’re sick and won’t make you feel guilty about it the next day.
- Spends at least half the night in the bathroom, telling crying girls they’re beautiful until they’re happy again. It’s the best part of her night. She’s gay af, and lovely. She can handle all your other weird drunk friends. Great night out.

Bonus!! Yakov drunk:
- why did you bring your dad out to party??
- either way it doesn’t matter because after a couple of shots, an hour spent venting about his students and his divorce, and about six seconds on the dance floor, he’s ready to leave.
- he’s not that bad really. he might even give you a hug on the way out and tell you he’s proud of you. You’ll cry. You always wanted to hear your dad say that.

I’ve been really hesitant to post this here because tumblr can get pretty vitriolic about dieting and weight loss but fuck it, I’m proud of myself.

After recovering from my illness in early 2014 (in which I couldn’t hold down food and lost about 70lbs from pure starvation), I began to heavily overeat all the junk I possibly could in fear that it would happen again. Except I didn’t stop, because that’s not how that works, and I ended up at 213lbs. Uncomfortable all the time, out of shape, unable to wear my old clothes and unable to afford the rare and elusive Good Plus Sizes.

So I said fuck it and changed my eating habits entirely right before the holidays, which I survived without incident. I’m at 39lbs down as of today, which puts me halfway to my goal of 135-140ish, and is why I’m so excited for my upcoming costume! I’ve got more energy, am lighter on my feet, and fit a lot of my clothes again.

So here’s me in the same shirt/pose in August and a few days ago.

I won’t post about this often and have tried not to other than recipes and I know it’s not for everyone. But man I’m proud of my discipline.

It’s done!!! Sorry I didn’t post anything yesterday, my tablet and computer were both being stupid with the batteries dying but they’re working again. Yay!

THE BLUE SHIRT WAS CHOSEN (RIP 1999, 2017. Loved by many (no one on tumblr (besides me))(RIPx2). you got no votes you poor soul (shirt))

Anyway, this is a gift for @kiekyun because your art gives me so much life. I really love everything you draw, you really are a very wonderful artist and I hope to be as good as you some day! (I’m sorry about no background, I really suck at those) I don’t know if you’ll actually see this but if you do then please let me know what you think! :D

danisnotonfire’s eye!
wow, i don’t think i’ve ever been more proud of a drawing in my life. i am honestly so happy with this drawing aaaah!

honestly, this has turned out way better than some of my graphite eye drawings which i did not expect :3
i hope y'all like it!
@danisnotonfire

update: thank you all so much for the kind comments, likes and reblogs. it honestly means so much to me and this has become my most popular post now. honestly i couldn’t wish for anything more :)
Teen Wolf:

My heart still can’t wrap around the fact that teen wolf is finally over. This cast has given me so much during the past year, happiness, sadness and to some people, it’s just some ‘stupid’ teenage girl show but that’s not the case for a girl like myself and many others out there in the world. 

This show has made me feel all kinds of good emotions during the year that I had finally discovered the show. This show made me laugh when I was sad or angry or annoyed, this show made me smile through all of the good moments that was shown to me and cry through all of the sad moments. 

This show saved so many people and to so people it may not be as much to them but it certainly is to the people that made them feel happy with their lives or content to themselves.

This show showed me that it’s okay to be yourself, take Lydia, for example, the popular girl, the ‘dumb’ one in the group. She has developed into a strong, smart and beautiful woman throughout the seasons and I am so proud of her. She is one of many characters that has become their own individual.

This show was the main reason I started this very blog because I was reading through some imagines that I had come across. I had eventually started watching the show and instantly fell in love. I had started reblogging gifs and creating my own post using a gif on the internet or on here, then I wrote my very first imagine which is forgotten.

I just want to say a huge thank you to the cast of teen wolf for getting me to where I am today. If it wasn’t for this fun, amazing and talented cast then I don’t if I would have even started an imagine blog. 

TEEN WOLF YOU TRULY ARE MY HERO WHETHER OTHER PEOPLE AGREE WITH ME OR NOT YOU’RE A HERO TO ALL OF US.
