Frisk groaned loudly into her pillow as her alarm went off, she got up lazily looking around with very messy hair.
Sans sat up tiredly looking at Frisk only to start laughing upon seeing the birds nest that was her hair. Frisk glared at him as he laughed holding his angry morning monster in his embrace.
Frisk mumbled angrily but hugged him with a small sigh,“ bone head.” She looked at him only for him to grin,“ birds nest.”
Frisk’s face turned red as she got out of their bed and to the bathroom for her shower with Sans yelling and laughing playfully,“ oh come back kiddo I was only Egging you on! Your temper is usually as light as a feather!” He laughed as she groaned loudly.
“Sans I’m gonna throw something at you!“

Doesn't it get a little boring and repetitive to make every single character in every single musical gay for each other? Jeremy literally sings a whole song about how much he wants to date Christine, joins the drama club to get close to Christine, and gets a squid JUST so he could learn how to be cool so Christine would like him. I don't know but making characters that are canonically straight gay is weird to me??
alright, so i initially was just going to delete this ask or just block the person who sent it as i normally do whenever i get messages with underlying homophobia, but i’ve had a rough start today and it wouldn’t sit right with me if i didn’t say anything about this.
let me start off by saying that, no. it doesn’t get boring and repetitive. at all. and regardless of your intent behind the question (asking out of curiosity or to needle in), i’m offended by that question. as a queer person, hearing someone word it in a way that suggests that my life and the way i experience/feel things and that reflecting that onto a character is boring is genuinely one of the most hurtful things i’ve had said to me. the lack of queer representation in media is what’s boring and repetitive - it’s for that exact reason that we (queer content creators) have to make our own queer representation for ourselves. it’s both exhausting and comforting, because a degree of control there.
straight erasure is not a thing. you have hundreds, thousands, millions of straight characters to pick and choose from - LGBT people only have a specific window of characters to relate to, and even then, a large majority of them are either tossed under the bus, written with their identity as comic relief, killed, or just plain terribly written (that being said, rich canonically being bi did genuinely make me tear up because i was so ecstatic over it). we don’t have a huge pool to choose from like straight people do, and a lot of us come from places where our identities are a source of conflict in our environment, and many of us find comfort in normalizing what we feel through characters.
you can headcanon a straight character’s sexuality as being gay. or bi. or lesbian, pan, demi, etc, etc - literally anything other than straight, because we don’t have a lot to choose from. you absolutely cannot, however, headcanon a queer character as straight, because that’s queer erasure - you’re erasing a subtype that already has next to nothing for it, and it’s homophobic. it’s a terrible thing to do. we’re not hurting anyone with our headcanons or content in the slightest. what we’re doing is enjoying ourselves freely and tossing in our own views and experiences, and it’s incredibly comforting to be a part of a community that’s so overly positive with it all.
as an addition to that - i feel like you’re misinterpreting this. you are aware that there are sexualities other than straight and gay, right? this is a part of the problem, too - people insisting that a character can’t be queer because of canonical attraction someone of the opposite gender.
you can be attracted to members of more than one gender. being queer is a spectrum, and people land all over the place on it.
that being said, part of what bugs me the most is your reaction to this. the cast and creators of B/M/C themselves have responded no less than wildly enthusiastic about the feeling and views people put behind the characters- and have stated as such. you have an issue with this while they don’t, and that makes me uncomfortable.
because the issue that you have right here? people headcanoning a character as queer and making content that’s harming literally no one, and you being hung-up on that because it messes with you viewing the character as straight?
that’s called homophobia, my guy. don’t know how else to break it to you.
My kid does 13K in damage to studio equip, we handle it like lunatics.
I’m an audio engineer and score arranger full time in my self-owned business. It’s how I provide for myself, my fiancée (also CF), and my mother. I record, mix, and master for bands, voice-overs for local commercials, and write music for people’s weddings, college films, indie games, etc.. It was my passion since I was a child and every day I ask myself why I get paid to do what I do.
You know, until today.
I had a woman schedule to come in because she wanted me to record her monologue for an acting class. I thought it was going to be easy enough. I set up a mic and a music stand in the sound booth and got my workstation prepped for tracking. She was supposed to show up at 3:30, so when 4:00 came around, I called her to ask her if she was still coming. It was my last contract for the day and I was wanting to get home to my fiancée, dogs, and dinner.
“Oh, sorry sweetie, I’m going to be there soon. I just had to get my son from ex-boyfriend.”
4:12, she showed up with her child.
To preface, I’ve never really wanted kids, and don’t really hate them either. But I’ve been childfree of mind for a decade now in league of several bad child experiences in public.
Anyway, I sat her down at the conference table and tried to talk to her about the contract and billing, etc., and just couldn’t because of the six-years-old pile of ovary droppings next to her.
“Mommy it’s cold in here.” “Mommy, I’m bored.” “Mommy, that guy has girl hair.” “Mommy, I want to play on the phone.”
The incessant whining went on for the entirety of the discussion. She did nothing about it. I had an ache in my stomach that this might be a rough session.
I was right.
I showed her to the sound booth, positioned the mic at face level, told her the basics of mic use, and then she floored me with a question.
“Can my son stay in there with you while I do this?” I insisted that he wait in the conference room (across the hall from the control room) because the control room wasn’t a very kid-friendly place considering the 120K of equipment at arms reach.
“But he’s a little angel.”
I shouldn’t have taken her word for it. I SHOULD NOT have taken her word for it. This kid was ANYTHING but. I let him in, told him to sit in one of the office chairs and don’t touch anything. Needless to say, he touched. I queued the recording arm and signaled her to start. She got three lines into her take before I hear a deafening screech and crash.
That little shit machine had just knocked over a $4,000 Korg into a rack with $9,500 of equipment. Completely shattered the touchscreen on the Korg, busted the dials off of half of the effects, and totaled my distressor that I use for almost all the vocals I track.
All of this, by the way, was the room’s length apart from where I told the crotch goblin to stay.
The kid, because of the loud noise, started full-lung screaming. Not crying. Not yelling. Screaming.
The mother, with no hesitation, ran over to the control room and DEMANDED to know what I did to her child. She cussed at me and accused me of hurting her little snot monster. Threatened to sue and even swung at me. When I told her that her precious angel had just racked up at least twelve grand of damages, she said “good”, spit on me, then stormed out, slamming every door on the way. So I pulled the security camera footage and had filed a police report. Grand total: $13,504.25. I also mailed her the bill for her session for good measure.
Of six years in the studio, this is my only truly terrible experience. Fuck mombies. Fuck having children. Thanks for making my vasectomy decision that much easier on me.
The Christmas Invasion - Behind the Scenes [Part 14]
Excerpt from Benjamin Cook’s articles in Doctor Who Magazine #365
Sean [Sycorax leader] is now ready for his big confrontation with the Doctor. “Under all this latex,” he reminds David, “I’m an extremely sexy, gorgeous, attractive, blue-eyed blonde.”
Yeah, right, that’s what all the Sycorax say.
“It seems like ages since I’ve said any lines,” David laughs. “It’s been like a week! And some people say actors have an easy life…”
——- And how does he like spending virtually the whole episode in pyjamas?
“It’s fantastic on a day like this,” he laughs. “The caves were quite cold, but I had my dressing gown, which is very warm. I mean, if it had been bucketing with rain today, I would have been fantastically miserable, obviously, cos these are fairly sheer pyjamas, but it’s worked out all right. It’s boiling. Next to poor old Sean, who’s wrapped under a latex duvet from dawn till dusk, with horrible contact lenses irritating the heck out of him, I’ve got away quite lightly, I think.”
To everyone who has given to our kickstarter so far: THANK YOU!! We are unbelievably grateful, and we could not have come this far without you. That being said, we are only halfway to our goal, so continue to BOOST BOOST BOOST. Special shoutout to Jon Hydeman, an old friend of Phoebe’s, who tipped us over the $2500 edge.
We also want to take this opportunity to talk about some of our stretch goals:
1. $6,000 If we reach this level, we’ll make a crossover episode! We’re planning for one between Station to Station and Under Pressure, to run after both shows have had their first season. Also, we’ll be able to pay our sound editor, our musician, and our artist a bit, in addition to paying our actors. It also gives us a little more breathing room in our budget, which is always a good thing if we decide to add people part way through a season. We’ve budgeted for $100 USD/episode, but a little padding is always good to have.
2. $7,500 At this level we’ll commit to at least one “holiday special” episode for each show! We’re generally planning to do this anyway if the shows are successful, but if we’re funded to this level we’ll be secure in the knowledge that there’s a designated place for them in the budget. At this time, we’re planning on a Halloween special from Station to Station, and a New Year’s episode from Under Pressure about ghost submarines.
3. $10,000 We’ll pay everybody more. Quite frankly, our actors all deserve way more than the minimal amount we’re asking for. This level will allow us to pay them more generously for their time and fantastic work, and at this level the five Procyon writers & producers will also be able to pay ourselves. This means we can dedicate more time and more energy to bringing you more content.
4. $15,000 At this level, we will commit to making an additional, limited-run show. We’re currently planning on an historical murder mystery to be written by Andrea Klassen of Station to Station and Margaret Clark of Under Pressure. Our working title: Operator.
This is a really fun and nervewracking time for all of us here at raccoonstronaut central. We’re having a really good time with the production of these shows, and the kickstarter shows us that you’re interested in listening to them. Please please please continue to boost throughout the rest of the campaign to support diverse media, made for a diverse audience.
We haven’t categorized ourselves. And I don’t think we’ve thrown ourselves at the public as much as a lot of other people who say they haven’t—we don’t put ourselves in the way of glory. But three years is such a short time to start making any grand assessment. We’ve had the opportunity to be superduper incredible stars, and we could have lived on that much more than we have done, but I think it’s just a case of holding back all the time, because if you take the reins that are given to you, you end up destroying yourself—overdoing it, over playing it, over living it, and suddenly finding out that the things from your past don’t fit in at all with what you’re doing now. Therefore it’s much better for me to go home and be as I have been for years and years and years, than make some new being out of myself…

Obviously f/f relationships of all varieties are fantastic but I wanna give a special shoutout to gay/lesbian identified women who are in a relationship with bi/pan identified women. Although biphobic lesbians and lesbophobic bi/pan women exist, they do not represent their entire communities, and never will. The love between lesbians and bi/pan women will always be more important than intercommunity hate. Your love and relationships are beautiful and amazing.
Serena McKay’s badly beaten body was found on April 23, 2017, barely two hours after she was reported missing, in Manitoba, Canada. Police ended up arresting two girls, of 16 and 17 years old, and charged them with second degree murder. Their names can’t be released for legal reasons. A graphic video of Serena being beaten by the teenagers, who appear to be under the influence, was posted in Facebook and remained there for hours before being taken down. It can still be found in the internet, although Serena’s family have asked people not to watch or distribute it.
Serena was part of the Sagkeeng First Nation and it was one of their elders who found her body. A massive vigil was held in her memory.
