still in highschool actually

2

my two most favorite people in the world

I’ve only been in highschool for like nearly two years, and I’ve encountered 7 couples in my grade (that I know of! I don’t spend much time dwelling on who likes who and who’s dating who so I only know the REALLY open ones). 5 straight ones and 2 lesbian ones (well, one of the lesbian couples is a grade ahead of me but I’m good friends with them because they’re in my art class so I’m counting them)

And the two gay couples have been going on strong for 2 years and 3 years respectively.

The straight ones lasted for at the most 6 months (which is actually still quite long for highschool couples) and I’m pretty sure only one or two is still together.

So like, am I saying gay love is stronger and more unconditional? Yeah, I kinda am

YATESBERT THERES NOT ENOUGH PLEASEEEEE

Erin and Abby Highschool girlfriends here we go

  • Erin did track and field
  • Abby wanted to join the marching band, but they told her she was too fat and she wouldn’t be able to keep up
  • One early morning Abby decided to go running to try and get in shape so she could finally belong somewhere
  • While she’s there Erin shows up to practise like she usually does
  • Erin starts warming up, and once she’s stretched she takes off her shirt to run in her sports bra
  • Abby is looking at her, and when she takes off her shirt Abby gets too distracted and trips over her feet
  • Erin runs over and asks if she’s okay or if she needs any help
  • They train together that day
  • Erin doesn’t usually have anyone to sit with at lunch, even though the track and field members are her team-mates, they don’t want to sit with ghost-girl
  • Abby has a similar problem: she is member/head of almost every club in school, so most days she just tries to sit with one of her club members and they make some excuse and leave and Abby ends up eating alone
  • this day Erin decides to go sit with Abby
  • “Oh you don’t have to sit with me out of pity, you can go sit with your cool team-mates.”
  • “Well umm… They don’t want to sit with me”
  • “Why not? You’re a jock, you’re smart, you’re a mathlete and an athlete. And you’re so beautiful too” (which totally makes Erin blush)
  • “I believe in ghosts, so everyone thinks I’m weird. They call me ghost girl”
  • “Oh cool. I like ghosts”
  • instant friendship from them on
  • Erin finds out Abby was just training to fit in, and that secretly she hates it
  • Erin tells her that she should only run if she really likes it, and that she doesn’t have to change to be beautiful, Erin likes her just the way she is
  • One day they’re walking down the hall together, and one of them just casually asks if the other is going to prom
  • “I wasn’t planning on. I don’t think anyone will ask me or anything”
  • “Well we could always go together”
  • They get matching dresses and go together without the intention of finding a date, but just to have fun
  • One of the geeky boys asks Erin to slow dance, but she looks over at her friend and sees Abby all alone, and says that she’s gonna dance with Abby instead
  • From then on the whole school assumes they’re dating
  • In the hallway Abby and Erin are walking together holding hands, as best friends do, and someone yells ‘dykes’ at them
  • Erin doesn’t understand, but she is so used be being called ghost-girl that she doesn’t really notice/mind
  • One day at Abby’s house while they’re studying for an english quiz Erin brings it up
  • Abby explains that they get called dyke because people think that they’re gay/dating
  • “Oh well that would be…” Erin looses her train of thought and kisses Abby right then and there
  • She pulls back and apologises and she starts freaking out and abby can’t get a word in edgewise so she just interrupts Erin by kissing her back
  • They figure if they’re gonna get called dykes anyway they might as well date right?
  • They are the cutest couple and go on ghost hunting dates, or dates to the library to research more about ghosts, or study dates in general

Ok this post got way longer than I expected, I just love the idea of Yatesbert high school girlfriends. (If you wanna see more than this tho, you can send me one of the one sentence prompts and I’ll write a Yatesbert Highschool gfs drabble)

Someone I followed pointed out that drawing fanart all the time made them inclined to conform to the style to preserve likeness and as such, caused them to feel restricted and unflexible. Of course, that was exactly what was happening to me.

Unfortunately this is what happens when I draw fanart in ‘my style’ (or lack thereof), by the book. It’s got all the delicious bits; Hugeass brush, little to no reference and respect for character design, horrid generic anatomy, line gaps, line gaps, LINE GAPS. Needless to say- it’s not very nice, is it?

But hey, it felt damn good to swing my pen around without caring if people liked it or not like I used to.
