I recently commissioned @isharton to draw art of my fanwalker from Innistrad and I’m honestly blubbering like a baby because Ish knocked it out of the park and came up with ideas I never even considered for Ian’s design and I’m just gonna stop now because if I don’t I’ll never get to a point of actually posting the final product, like
Like I was so indecisive on the hair color and Ish just came up with thAT, AND HONESTLY??? I NOW CAN’T IMAGINE IAN ANY OTHER WAY??? IT’S SO GOOD???
Ish, I sincerely mean it when I say I have no words to describe how amazing of a job you did in pulling together what I gave you in just reference images and a vague idea of what I had in mind for my character into something this fantastic.
Thank you, thank you, thank you so much!!
I’ll write up a post about Ian’s backstory and abilities later tonight when I’m at work, but for now I have to go to bed.
IF YOU'RE DOING ART REQUESTS ANY VENEZIANO?? PLS??
So…. While I was drawing this I kind of realized it had been years since I’d last drawn Feliciano???? And…. Because of that…. I ended up going all out with it shddlijfkldjfssdhf Because I’m extra like that
19th Century APH Germany voice, overheard outside of fencing practice: I’ve heard Veneziano is shredded. I’ve heard he has an eight pack and single handed kicked the Turks out of Europe when he was a cHILD.
don’t talk boueibu with me Ill get the weirdest ideas like talking about what the english names would be for boueibu characters if they got changed in a dub so far we got Phillip for Ibushi, Edison for Kinshiro, Julian for Akoya, Charles for Io, Jake for Ryuu and deciding between Mikey and Mickey for Yumoto I should be stopped
I'm scared noone will ever want me because im not the skinniest... i have a stomach and my hips are too small.. im ugly too
weight is not and should not be a barrier on love. you don’t want to be with someone who thinks that way. fat =/= ugly. everyone has a stomach, learn to love your tummy. what’s so bad about having some extra fat? what about that dictates beauty? honestly like you might see stick-thin models in shows and magazines but most people don’t look like that. we’re all insecure. i’m quite short, i’m not super skinny, my thighs expand like molten blobs when i sit on a chair – but i’m not the only one.
there is no such thing has having “too small” hips because there is no right way a body can be. every single body, every single one of them, is different. the sooner you learn to stop comparing yourself to what the media feeds us, and start paying attention to the differences in everyone you pass by on the street, the less pressure you’ll feel
and on that note, what is beautiful and “ugly” changes from person to person. i’m not going to lie to you and say “ugly” doesn’t exist because like. crocs exist. crocs are ugly. but someone else think crocs are beautiful. so try not to get too bummed about it. i promise you once you stop beating up on yourself, you’ll care less, you’ll learn to love yourself.
please don’t talk so negatively about yourself, ok. you’re worth so much and i love you and i promise you there are people out there that will love you unconditionally. but remember that your worth and value as a person is not defined by someone else - if you can’t love yourself, you’ll never be content. you gotta love you
I don’t even want to know what he’s like in person
J: They are so frustrating with this immediate like/love. Either they have no idea what any of that means or they have no standards what so ever on who they “love”. I do love that he thought blocking you was going to hurt your feelings. 😂😂😂
“What does she use to wash her face? A Brillo pad?”
“She should! She’d look better!”
What’s a Brillo pad? Sounds like something to clean glasses with… *googles*
Okay yeah, don’t use those on your glasses or your faces.
“Never talks to anybody. Maybe she knows she sounds like a r(…) and keeps her mouth shut.”
“No, she’s not that smart.”
You’d be surprised how smart this girl is.
No more than three feet behind Emma, I could see Mr. Gladly leaving his classroom. The tirade didn’t stop as I watched him tuck a stack of folders under one arm, find his keys and lock the door.
I briefly misread that as “fuck”. More at 11.
This could be interesting - Mr. Gladly already knows somepeople’s bullying Taylor, and this gathering around the normally asocial Taylor is gonna look mighty suspicious. Are the Harpies going to try to act innocent?
“If I were her, I’d kill myself,” one of the girls announced.
Mr. Gladly turned to look me in the eyes.
Yeah, no, of course they aren’t. They know they can still get away with it.
“So glad we don’t have gym with her. Can you imagine seeing her in the locker room? Gag me with a spoon.”
Huh, separate gym classes for students who seem to be in the same group. I guess that makes sense; it’s just not a concept I’m used to.
Y’all seem to think that ‘Respect’ing other human beings means simply being nice to them, accepting their views, and excusing their actions. But…?
Respecting a person as a PERSON means that you’re acknowledging that they exist. That’s it. Speaking about them, as if they are real. That’s what it means to respect a person as a person. You can disagree and downright condemn a person’s beliefs while still acknowledging that they are a person. Because we, as people, are perfectly capable of doing terrible things and still being people. We’re capable of bad, just like we’re capable of good. The point of respecting a person as a PERSON is not accepting their views. It is not sympathizing with them. It is not giving them the benefit of the doubt. And it is not allowing them to continue to hurt you or your people without consequence. It is not excusing them. It is not surrender.
Respecting a person is realizing that they are still a person saying these terrible things. Not excusing, forgiving, approving, or supporting these terrible things and ideas, but knowing that it was a human itself behind these actions. A person is not suddenly subhuman just because they have terrible ideologies. They’re still a person. Because people do and can have terrible, unforgivable beliefs. And do do unthinkable things. But respecting them as a person is not forgetting that they’re a human. You’re not fighting a monster (Though, a monster in this context would of course be the harmful ideals spread, and the stigma that it both caused and was generated from. Etc.) But you’re fighting another human being.
Now, this by no means should ever weaken your resolve to fight and rise against ideas, campaigns, people that seek to degrade you and oppress you and make “jokes” (can you tell that I literally do not support Felix worth a damn.) at the expense of your suffering. If anything, I feel as if viewing them as a person (read: not forgiving or excusing them. But acknowledging that they are a person.) can only strengthen your fight. The second you fight as if you’re fighting a human being, is the moment that people around you begin to understand why you’re fighting and gain the will to fight themselves. Because they’re humans too.
People on this site are so quick to completely forget the humanity of the other people on this site over something as remedial as shipping Peridot with Lapis over Amethyst. Do not weaken your own arguments, your own voices, and your own points by dropping your voice as if it were to regard and speak to subhumans.
Do not let the forces you fight drop your battle from your own hands. You hold it firmly, back straight, and presented at the human being that pushed you, and didn’t expect you to push back. Make them realize that they are not subhuman. Let them know that you, as a human being, are speaking to them, as a human being, on a battle field that they do not want to to be leveled and fair. Let them know that they are not subhuman, even if their beliefs are garbage. Let them know, they’re not lesser as people.
But as a human being, their actions are unacceptable. And inhuman. Allow them the privilege to feel ashamed. Do not give them the idea that, as a ‘subhuman’, these actions are expected and allowed of them. Let them know that it’s wrong. Let them know.
And that you, as a human being, will not stand for it.
Don’t excuse them. But see them for what they are.
Keep your vision clear, and your voice true. Know that you do not owe them kindness. But know the force that opposes you.
Know them in a way that, in some cases, they will refuse to know you.
