speak out

(( Holy hell, y’all

One year ago, when DiU was airing and I was starting to get more into Jojo’s, I happened across some blogs with cute JJBA art. And then some more. And then some more. Dailies, Badlydrawns, askblogs… a whole fun little community, tucked away in a corner I hadn’t noticed. And I thought: Hey, I’ve been drawing a fair bit of JJBA lately. Why not give a blog a go? It’ll be good art practice, right?

One year, 1200+ posts(!), 6.9gb of art(!!), and over 1260 followers(!!!) later… Yeah, it’s been good practice, past-self. Thanks for taking the leap, and keeping it up all this way. We’ve come pretty far.

And none of it would have happened without all of you. I’m gonna have some specific shout-outs under the cut, but first, let me just say thank you. To everyone who’s sent asks, added notes, or even reached out to my awkward little self with friendship and messages… You’ve definitely made this past year more special. Wherever the future may lead, I’m incredibly grateful to each and every one of you for accompanying me this far. 

Seriously, thank you.

Keep smiling, my lovelies. ))

Keep reading

Just a reminder: all good things in a fandon will reach the toxic areas of a fandom. It’s unavoidable and all we can do is just remember that these things are good regardless of what the toxic people say about it.

Not Every Film Has to Pass the Bechdel Test (And Some Shouldn’t Even Try)
“Dunkirk” and “Their Finest” present two perspectives on World War II, only one of which passes the Bechdel Test. That shouldn’t matter.
By Kate Erbland

Interesting read and makes some good points. Misses out on others though.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t the Bechdel test always more of a thing to show how little women are featured in general and that only few from all movies pass this small requirements? And more of to show that only few percents even have female speaking roles, not about a single movie to be judged on its own (at least not unless it claims to feature woman heavily and then still failing). It doesn’t say anything about quality of female roles or anything at all. It is indeed just a small very imperfect quick test and not a deep analysis.

In an ideal movie-making world not every movie has to pass the Bechdel (or reverse Bechdel) test, but those movies are more of an exception than the rule. Same with the other tests. In an ideal movie world not every movie will pass all tests, not every movie will have African-American leads or stories where a female character has its own story arch. It’s about diversity. It’s about telling different stories from different point of views and not saying that the white-male view and experience is the dominating one that is a template for everyone out there. Not every single work has to be diverse, but the movie world in itself has to represent diversity and offer opportunities.

Like you've always been amazing and #goals with it but the latest one I saw (fite me Edward) was so dimensional I sat and stared at it for like 10 solid minutes.
