so it's up to you to guess who~

like, just imagine a comic about life lessons where the character is always 100% perfect and a good role model and The Best™ all the time

imagine how fucking unrelatable and even condescending a character like that is to a young person whos still learning, fucking up, learning to live with their mistakes, learning to apologize and sympathize with people, moving on, etc

the weird tumblr mindset of “everything needs to be unproblematic and appeal to children and be a good role model” is so fucking backwards because children and young people make mistakes and they need to learn that its ok to fuck up instead of constantly hearing “this is how you need to act and if you dont youre literally the fucking worst”, because guess fucking what im pretty sure young people hear how they should act and feel often enough in their lives

if you want your character to teach something to children, let your character be a child. let them fuck up, let them learn and let them grow. having your character be just another Perfect Role Model is just another way of putting pressure on kids and teaching them they can never fuck up, ever, and that they should feel bad for stuff they probably dont even know was wrong. 

teach children to learn from their mistakes instead of putting constant pressure on them to never make any

So this is legit the message Trump left at the Holocaust memorial in Israel -

- and, yeah.

One Republican official, who requested anonymity in order to speak freely, said after meeting Trump recently he did not think the president had a firm enough grasp on the nuances of the long-running Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“I don’t think he understands it,” said the official, adding that Trump needed more detailed briefings before leaving on Friday. “I think it’s a very difficult challenge and I hope he’s going to talk to a lot of smart people.”

Conversations with some officials who have briefed Trump and others who are aware of how he absorbs information portray a president with a short attention span.

He likes single-page memos and visual aids like maps, charts, graphs and photos.

National Security Council officials have strategically included Trump’s name in ‘as many paragraphs as we can because he keeps reading if he’s mentioned,’ according to one source, who relayed conversations he had with NSC officials.

“Wow. That is absolutely pathetic. Our President can only understand the world to the extent it involves…himself.”

“Plus Ultra!!!!”

Please let my sunshine kid Midoriya brighten up your dash and your day!!!

So, I spent the better half of my Friday (read; all of it) doodling Gijinkas of my Sun and Moon pokemon team.

I hadn’t played the game until very recently so I kind of missed the hype train, but that didn’t stop me from loving the game or my team! And I McFreaking love designing gijinkas so here I am! I didn’t label what pokemon they actually are–Hopefully you can guess that just from their designs! 

((Please ignore what a poor team comp this is. I am a filthy casual and I love my half useless team very much.))

In any case, get ready for a small spam of these guys over the next few days cuz Imma queue up all the doodles I did of them!

Who do you like the best?

You need to be more self aware. I’m surprised you think you can choose your own image. From the audience’s perspective, you’re just a piglet and a kitten.

I know this is a lesbian blog but I do want to make a quick shout out to my bi sisters:
Being bi isn’t a phase and you deserve better than someone who tells you that.
Being bi isn’t a “gateway sexuality” to being straight or gay and you deserve better than someone who thinks that.
Being bi doesn’t make you “more likely to cheat” and you deserve better than anyone who believes that.
Being bi doesn’t give you any privilege (no matter the gender of your partner) and you deserve better than someone who claims that.
Being bi is a good thing and you deserve someone who embraces you the way you are 100% and loves and supports you ❤❤❤

guess who’s opening up sketch commissions! its me :D

SO! I will be taking 5 slots every week for an indeterminate amount of time. The plan is that I will be working on them every weekend on streams! I will shoot mostly for saturdays but if need be I will do sundays as well (saturday streams will be double streams with @imaginashon​ if time permits). streams will be held on picarto

Slots will be given on a first come first serve basis and I will require payment upfront before I put you on the list. I will be sending out invoices so paypal isnt required!

  • Every sketch is $20 and additional characters are worth $5! (i will allow up to 2 extra characters (maybe 3 depending on design)). I will accept OC’s and fanart as well as furry/animal characters, but i cannot draw mecha (simple robotic characters are fine tho).
  • OC’s will require character reference and some idea of their colors so that I can do an accurate monochromatic version.
  • Description of what you have in mind would be handy but isn’t required, but i will ask for personality descriptions and/or character relations if i don’t recognize the character(s)
  • I will absolutely NOT draw anything nsfw and/or offensive in any way shape or form, and i hold the right to deny any request.

If you’re interested in a commission, shoot me an email at kiki.commissions@gmail.com!

Hehehe, these are super old now (pre Suffering Game!) but since I’m on the road to probably revamping the way I draw Taako for maybe the 18th time I figured I’d toss up these sketch pages of good ol’ Tres Horny Boys™️

EDIT: Forgot that tumblr hates…. images…… click thru for hi res!

Once upon a time, my dear friend Palak @stylishmuser had a dream. She told me that dream and then, within the same day, this video happened. I’m here to put that dream into words. Please enjoy.

Also, @stylesunchained…I dared. I’m sorry.

————————————————————————————————

Harry was waiting patiently for someone on the other end of the phone to answer his call. He had called exactly when he always did; 6:30 on the dot in London, which was half an hour before his daughter went to bed. The nightly ritual had been the same for the past two weeks; he would call before bedtime, talk to his little girl as soon as she had her pajamas on, say goodnight before you tucked her in, and then call back after she was asleep and talk to you until his eyes started to droop. It wasn’t ideal - he would have much rather been home with the two of you - but it was better than nothing.

The familiar and sweet sound of your voice finally echoed in his ears and he saw your face pop up on the tiny screen.

“Hey you,” you smiled, “How are you?”

“Tired,” he replied, rubbing at his eyes a bit to keep them focused, “Lots of meetings and interviews today. Is she still up?”

“Of course. I’ve just had her run and brush her teeth; she should be out soon, she knows what time it is.”

Another few minutes went by as you and Harry talked about what had been going on, but you knew Harry was getting antsy to talk to someone else. As much as he loved conversations with you, he only had a limited time with his daughter before she fell asleep.

“(Y/D/N)!” you called, turning your head, “Daddy’s on the phone and he’s waiting for you!”

It was only a few seconds before the thumping of tiny feet could be heard running down the hallway. A moment later, Harry saw the wild hair of his three-year-old appear in frame and he chuckled.

“Hi, monkey,” he said, waving.

“Hi daddy!”

“I miss you. How are you?”

“I’m good. I went to Nana’s today and Auntie Gem was there!”

Harry grinned. “Was she? That sounds like fun. Did she let you play salon with her hair again?”

His daughter nodded, excitedly. That was one thing Harry was so thankful for; a sister who didn’t care if her niece wanted to poke, prod, braid or twist her hair within an inch of its life. Gemma was always game for a little ‘toddler spa day’.

“Daddy, guess how many more days!!”

“Hmm,” Harry thought, “I don’t know. Tell me.”

She held up both hands, folding two fingers down.

“Only this many! An’ then you’ll be home, daddy!”

Can you imagine

The Inner Circle having dinner, and then Feyre or someone goes “Well, I guess it’s only a matter of time before the bond snap for Nesta, right?" 

And Nesta says, "it had already snapped" 

And everyone goes WHAT 

And Nesta just says, deadpan, "well, I felt it ages ago, but over my dead body I would let some stupid bound decide who I end up with, so I just ignored" 

And everyone just stares at her and Cassian just stand there, utterly shocked, having a mental breakdown 

i want to write relationships that are complicated.

i want to write the on-again-off-again relationships. i want the screaming matches and the cancelled dates and the hurt feelings and the second guesses and second chances. 

i want to write people who completely shake up each other’s daily routine and flip their entire world on its axis. i want them to drive each other crazy and question why they bother sticking around and then remember the way their partner laughs or see them in a moment of vulnerability that tells them ‘this is is why i stay. this is why i love you.' 

i want to write relationships with struggles. with class differences and financial divide. two people who are so completely different they somehow complete each other. i want the jealousy and the feelings of inadequacy that goes with it. 

i want to write people who aren’t afraid to be honest with their partner. who aren’t afraid to say 'yeah you’re being an asshole’ followed by 'but i still love you, you idiot.’

i want the first time they see their partner cry and the morning after their first intimate night when everything feels so right.

i want people who get so used to one another that they stop going the extra mile. i want the 'you don’t make the effort because you already have me’ argument.

i want relationships that challenge each other to be better people and make each other question their beliefs and moral compass. 

but most of all, i want to write relationships that are real. that make you feel something. i want to go on the emotional rollercoaster right along with them.

that’s what i want.

Rumor
  • Minho: There's a rumor going around, you know.
  • You: What rumor?

  • You: Oh, so he's in love with me?
  • Newt: No he isnt.

  • Newt: You alright?
  • You: *laughs* Just doing my best to stay away from the boys and their secret admirer crap.
  • Newt: Don't think you have one?
  • You: Have you met the boys? Of course not. Besides if there were, I dont understand why he wouldn't talk to me.
  • Newt: Maybe he's afraid you won't like him back.
  • You: How will he ever know if he wont talk to me?
  • Newt: Give the shank a break, he's a shy one.

  • Minho: It's not all that hard to tell if your pay attention to the way he looks at you.
  • You: What if it's the guy I'm thinking of?
  • Minho: I think you know exactly who he is, (Y/N).
  • -
  • You: Guess what? I found out who the secret admirer is.
  • Newt: Oh..how?
  • You: Doesn't matter. Do you think now I know he'll grow a pair and ask me out?
  • Newt: If he does, will you say yes?
  • You: Only if he stops referring to himself in the third person.
  • Newt: Okay (Y/N), would you like to go out with me?
  • You: Y'know I always had a thing for boys with accents.
What happened to Texts Between Gems?

Hi, everyone! I hope you’ve all been doing well. A lot of people have been asking where I’ve been. I don’t usually share much personal information online, but I suppose I can spare a little bit.

Full disclosure: I am a college student and I’ve had a very busy semester. These past few months have been full of incredible new opportunities, experiences, and achievements for me in my life away from the internet.

I’m very proud of what I’ve been able to do, but I’m sad that this blog fell to the wayside. I love to write, I love TV and I love engaging with other fans online. I wish I could always have time for that.

That being said, the semester is wrapping up and very soon I will have time. In fact, I fully plan on posting texts along with the new Steven Bomb as it airs on TV this coming week.

I’m excited to be back! Running Texts Between Gems brings me great joy, and I hope that you will share in that joy with me as I become more active again. I appreciate you all. You make being a fan so much fun.

That’s all. Thanks, everyone!

Every consider drawing the Stoll brothers from pjo? If you haven't you really should cause there isn't enough fanart of them and they'd look so cute in your style

they up to sth

anonymous asked:

I imagine you're the kind of person who accidentally falls asleep sitting up.

well, not accidentally. falling asleep upright is kinda uncomfortable. i mean, i still do it, but usually it has to be a special occasion. or i have to be really really bored.

 last week i fell asleep sitting up with my eyes open and accidentally won a staring contest with nick fury. so theres that, i guess.

So I was showing my best friend my new icon, and his response was, “You know who he looks like?” and I was like, “NO, WHO??” and he was like, “I’ll give you a minute…” so I stared at the photo, having no clue who he meant, and I glance over at his phone to see that he’s pulled up pics of MARVIN MARTIAN I’m fucking DEAD

THE WAY HE GAVE ME A MINUTE AS IF I WOULD DEFINITELY GUESS IT



AND THE PROBLEM IS THAT HE’S NOT ENTIRELY WRONG IT JUST GETS WORSE

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING I can’t unsee it

Six of Crows characters as things that I have said/did
  • Kaz: I may be angry... that's it, there's no more to my statement.
  • Inej: currently, I have 7 knives within arms reach, two of which are inside my body.
  • Jesper: My dad was shot in the leg once, but the shooter was crazy good looking though. But it's a shame I was the one who shot my dad in the leg.
  • Nina: I wonder how many pieces of candy I can eat *searches it up* Ok it says here that 262 pieces of "fun-sized" candy could kill you so I guess I'm eating 261 pieces.
  • Matthias: Instead of a maid of honor, we should have a pup of honor, and instead of a best man, we should have a best dog, because I'm insufferable and only dogs will like me.
  • Wylan: Time to set up this game cube *game cube short circuits and breaks the pure silver chain on my mothers 15 carat diamond necklace* OH NO!!!! MY GAME CUBE!!!!
judgement of all goat emojis on emojipedia you’ve seen this before you understand the mechanics

pretty accurate rendering of what a goat typically looks like. i enjoy the detail put into the shading you can tell whoever did this knows where the scapula on a goat goes. a fine emoji

I LOVE THIS GOAT SO MUCH. THIS IS THE PERFECT GOAT EMOJI. I WANT TO CUDDLE THIS BEAUTIFUL CREATURE, I WANT TO HOLD IT IN MY ARMS 

i appreciate the graphic look to this goat. you look at this and you say, ‘yes, that is absolutely a goat’

i like the more cartoony look to this goat, however the terf bangs make me question the opinions this goat has so i’m just gunna move along

not.. my favorite. someone really went to town on the blur tool i’ll tell ya that much this is a goat thats been blended more than a protein smoothie

this one i have mixed feelings about. its lazy and just barely a goat but at least its simple and not like blendy mcblenderson up there 

very good!!!! a very good and solid goat!!! i love that its eye makes it look like its doing that one face, what are you hiding sweet friend!!!! i love you 

this is so……. lazy… guess we got a jerk out there who thinks learning how to design a goat is a waste of time. well screw you buddy i still love this goat regardless of your crap job 

only slightly better than twitter goat in that its actually cute and friendly and doesn’t look like a ditto pretending to be a goat pokemon. i’m so bitter what the hell twitter learn how to design a goat for petes sake 

i like that they’re smiling!!! they’re happy and thats all that matters to me

this is…. a goat.. thats for sure. its not the best but at least you can tell someone put work into it. thank you
