2 MONTHS HAVE GONE BY SINCE MY LAST POST!

Seriously though w h a t are you guys doing, I am not worthy!! But I adore all my mutuals and even those who do follow me just to ask questions and stuff! I usually make a big ass section for blogs to love, but this time, I’d like to just thank ALL of you, as well as @ people later down the page ~ 

Keep reading

pls don’t post me places without asking, I did not ever want to have my ass on Facebook, thats why I only posted it here where ppl were asking for it. I keep my tumblr stuff off Facebook for a reason, I didn’t post some of those images on Facebook for a reason, the main reason being family and friends.
If you know me at all you know this is really my personal blog and I post about my struggles with my body and appearance a lot so I really did not want to be put in the position to have people from all over the world constantly criticizing me and calling me a fat whore. I’m a real person. I have feelings. Please at least ask first.

Alright that’s okay for now. I wanted something a bit more user-friendly (since my previous theme didn’t show stuff like my tags and the option of liking and reblogging a post without having to click on it). Also the pictures are a bit bigger and clearer. I updated my useful links (where you can find my social media links, commission list and picarto) and FAQ section (I put some info about me, the brushes I use and similar stuff. I plan to work on this section a bit more in the future). Finally, I want to make a proper tag list, apart from my art tag. Let’s hope my blog will be more efficient now XD (for now the mobile version is still the same, I’ll check if I have to change anything)

So I’m not sure I can put into words how overwhelming it feels to have over 500 followers on this blog. You are all amazing. Thank you so much for clicking that button, for responding to fics, for messaging me, for reblogging my stuff. You’ve seriously made a very difficult time in my life a lot easier to manage (for those of you not in the know, I lost my Mum to pancreatic cancer at the end of November and have been struggling since). So thank you. Thank you so much.

We are going to celebrate your awesomeness.

I have 20 spots available for headcanon requests. Any of the TOS/AOS characters. (I’m on dayshift for the rest of the week, and so doing headcanons will allow me to respond while I’m on breaks, etc). 

As I did for 300 and 400, I will tag these all and then add the tag to the masterlist at the end of the celebration!


Thank you again. You’re amazing.

I’d like to remind our readers, and the anon whose invalidating assertion I just deleted, that this is NOT a discourse blog, and we won’t be arguing for the validity of our experiences here. This is a safe blog for validation and encouragement and support, and that’s all we’ll be posting.

My main tumblr is @cambriancrew (yes, Willow and Shea are one and the same) and you’re more than welcome to direct any discourse, disagreement, etc stuff there. Not like it’d be anything I, or any of the other mods here, haven’t heard before, but there someone (me, most likely, since I’m the most argumentative and defender-ish person in our crew, though Jas and occasionally Aery and Varyn have put in their two cents before too) will be more than willing to listen and answer any questions or concerns about the validity of non-disordered systems. But here it’s just gonna be deleted without a second thought. It just doesn’t fit what we mods here want on our blog.

Love to all our readers and followers.

Yes, every single one of you.

I’m not the best artist, and rarely am I confident enough to put stuff online, but. the new chapter of “A Cheap Imitation” was such a thrill that I had to do SOMETHING,,, but I’m too embarrassed to submit it to spoontasti SO. lmao this is so ooc (for them and for the scene in ACI ooPS)

THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME POST THIS BECAUSE IT’S JUST SO FREAKING CUTE OMG. THANK YOU SO SO SO SO SO MUCH FOR SHOWING ME!

and I HAVE to tag @spoontasti in this because I am positive that she wILL LOVE IT

maemstaichou  asked:

When I was in grade school I was really obsessed with geisha but my classmates would always pick on me for being so into "japanese prostitutes" it was always intensely frustrating and I gave up trying to explain it over and over and eventually "put geisha down" so to speak. Thank you for rekindling my love for geisha

This must be one of the loveliest asks I have gotten so far!

This blog’s goal is to showcase the beauty of Geisha and spread information about them to dispell myths about them and I’m really happy that this seems to be working (well, partly at least)!

I hope that you now can defend Geisha from accusations of being prostitutes! There really is nothing wrong with being a sex-worker, but it’s just not true and people saying stuff like that usually mean it in a condescending, derogatory manner.

And there is nothing wrong with having, special, niche-interests, either. Having a Tumblr-blog centered around Geisha is definitily uncommon, but it makes me happy, so I’ll keep doing this.

Thank you for sending me this message, have a great day!

new genre concept: soft apocalypse

the world as we know it has ended and mother nature starts taking back what’s hers. there are no zombies or cannibals or murderous bandits. the most valued members of the community are those who know how to garden and farm, sew and weave, treat wounds, work wood or build with bricks, cook from scratch. 

people bond together to begin rebuilding instead of killing each other. everyone teaches each other whatever they do know and works together to figure out the stuff none of them know. books become incredibly valued resources because they’re often the only way to learn critical information. if someone is elderly, disabled, or otherwise unable to work at the same level as most of the community, they’re taken care of by the others, not told any sort of “survival of the fittest” bs.

as the generations ware on, communities begin expanding into small cities. some of the settlements even find ways to repurpose solar or wind power on a small scale and have electricity in some of their buildings. storytellers wander the countryside telling tales of the old world in return for some hot stew or a place to rest for the night, and the mythos of the new world start to incorporate elements of the past. the only thing that remains constant is that humans survive, and they do it by working together.

Ok i’m kind of a huge loser and needed to draw this stuff to get it out of my system and I feel like I put enough time into it to… post it to my main blog. 

I imagine Tom and Janna would have a great friendship where Janna is constantly giving Tom near heart-attacks. I actually want to draw more just general interaction stuff for them for fun, so I’ll do that later. I figured I’d post these on their own though. 

Hey Jack did you know

you’re gonna grow up and play great hockey and find peace with yourself

and your boyfriend is gonna call you “Sweetpea”

and you’re finally gonna feel as lovable as you’ve always been

(@littlestpersimmon made me art about chubby kid!Jack and sweetpeas!)

My post isn’t to claim I get treated any worse than other people with a platform. Although the gory photos are really something else… I just wanted to vent and this is my blog and that’s where I do that stuff. If you don’t like it, no worries. You can move along and it won’t hurt either of us. Thanks for all the kind words from people who have left them! I have a great life and I’ve gotten to meet so many amazing people in this journey who have moved me and given me a tremendous amount of courage. I just needed somewhere to put my thoughts and I remembered not too long ago, I was a 19 year old girl with a blog and this is exactly where I put them. So I came back to a familiar place. 💓

Hi, everyone! Believe it or not, it’s my birthday again. This past year has involved a lot of change for me. When l look at what’s different in my life, it makes me think about my long-term goals and the prospect of growth.

I feel less certain about what I want my future to look like than ever before. I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t feel discouraged at many points during this past year. I’ve been battling a lot of “I’ll never” thoughts– “I’ll never be able to do this” and “I’ll never have that”, etc.

But when I think about how much has changed since my last birthday, it reminds me of all the things I’ve done and all the things I have that used to be “I’ll never"s. Things that I’ve accomplished and attained purely by living my life and experiencing new things and continuing to try, one day at a time.

I don’t think anyone, at any age, should look at themselves and conclude that by this point in their lives they know the ultimate limit of their capabilities with certainty. Even when my mind is full of "I’ll never"s, it comforts me to think that the things I struggle with now will one day fail to impede me, so long as I continue to try and be better. I know that my biggest, most daunting goals for the far future aren’t going to sneak up on me. On my way there I’ll become a person with the skill, experience, discipline, and stability to achieve them.

My life is better than it was a year ago. I’m a better person than I was on my last birthday. I’ve done more and I have more. I’m proud, and grateful, and excited.

I’m looking forward to the next one. And that’s all I wanted to say. Thank you.

we’re only 7 days into 2016 but I can already tell you that Hidden Figures will be the best and most important movie you see all year

These women, strong, educated, independent women- each in their own way- are what we should all aspire to be.

Their ability to ever back down, to stand for what they know is right, what they know is good, propels their story higher than any other I’ve ever known.

Katherine wasn’t afraid to take credit where credit was due.

Dorothy wasn’t afraid to take initiative and stand up for the work she had done.

Mary went through hell and back to make sure she could live her dreams

These women can do it. These women paved the way so you can do it.
