tagging them because why not i guess

I think I’m going through a little bit of an art block *sigh*

I need to stop drawing and coloring while I’m super sleepy. Everything is funnier in that state ahahhaha.

Why is Pidge upset? Lance tried to squish one of the alien furballs to see if they squeaked. Pidge not amused. Guess which one Lance tried to squish.

The little aliens that Pidge encounters are so cute, I wonder if one is going to tag along with Pidge for fun. The way I drew them makes it seem someone stuck them in a washer and put too much fabric softener (and some look paranoid too lmao).

Please don’t edit or repost. :D

Everything I Know About The Stormlight Archive Based On ~The Internet~

And by “Know” I mean am half-guessing/completely making up because I’ve seen about 10 posts on my dash but I’m reading this thing today so

Enjoy.

-One of them is Shallon Davar and she’s a ginger

-But her left hand is always covered????? What happened there.

-Also Pattern. I’m not even gonna guess on that one; looks weird.

-And then there’s Kaladin. He seems to have a blue color pallet.

-He has weird markings on his forehead, and probably other places. No idea what that’s about, but they look cool.

-Kaladin looks cool. I am interested in Kaladin.

-He also has a Navi. Named Syl? Idk but she looks smol and blue and I like her.

-There’s also someone named Dalinar Kholin.

-I know literally nothing about Dalinar.

-Roshar. Is what the world is called. Probably.

-I’m sure the magic stuff has a name too but I’m forgetting it. There is magic right? I’m pretty sure there is.

-I am a stick.

-But you could be fire.

-Do they use “Storms” as a swear word? 

The books are long af. I think I will enjoy this.

harley being with a man, a black man, is not oppressing anybody, it does not erase her being bi/pan, it does not erase her relationship with ivy (who was not even in suicide squad; the 2016 movie) you having a problem with people shipping her with a black man, when there’s clear build up to a romantic thing between them in the movie, is you trying to erase him, not us erasing her attraction to multiple genders. 

I decided I wanted the dialogue boxes to look different, and I also decided to finally add my own buttons for skipping and saving and such. It goes a long way towards making the game look more like my own and making it feel more… complete, I guess. And it’s surprisingly easy, haha. This is such an easy system to work with honestly, it’s great.

The buttons also change color when you hover over them or click them!

Thank you for supporting me

I got so many incredibly kind messages during the whole Art Theft ordeal, thank you all so, so much ;A; I was feeling like absolute crap and you guys made me feel so much better, it meant the world knowing that you guys understand and support me when art theft is so freaking common and unfortunately taken for granted by most of the Internet >.<;

The issue is more or less resolved, I guess. I’m still having a very kind volunteer translate my statement into Spanish because I still sorta feel like some members of the community in question didn’t get my full response and consider me a “hysterical artist,” and I just want them to understand why it’s bad so hopefully it doesn’t happen again in the future.

Thank you again, and coming right up a quick preview of thingy I’m working on ^ ^; (pst, read the tags to know what the AU’s gonna be like)

Liao is a common surname ins China and Hong Kong, so I just hc that they’re from there, and also the Omnic Crisis started in Russia, so probs big losses in those place.

They probably lost a lot. So I drew angst of my baby!~ even though this is old…

I still like to think that that macho from Ana’s video is Liao… So I draw them like this.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@ikolit

psa

i’m really not trying to sound … mean i guess?

so you guys know how this blog is run, a bot puts everything that gets posted in the klance tag on ao3 in the drafts of this blog, and then i personally sort through them and remove the bad ones

this means that i might slip up sometimes

and if you see a slip-up, please please please let me know the name of the fic so i can remove it! because i really want this to be as safe as possible, that’s why i made it, so that people, especially minors, could have a safe space to find fanfictions for their ship

this blog is something i maintain in-between work, sleep, and my ptsd recovery but i really am trying my best

thanks for the support <3

top 5 Dawn friendships and why?

BLESS YOU, FRIEND ANON

1) Dawn & Spike, surprising zero people. I even give them their own tag (#brotp: i’m badder than you). Mostly I love their relationship because there are so many different facets to it. They have so many conflicting feelings about one another–trust, admiration, anger sometimes, but also consistent respect. The respect is probably my favorite aspect of it–even when Dawn is extraordinarily angry at Spike in early S7, she gives him a clear and unambiguous warning, and Spike takes her death treat seriously. Obviously I also think they have lots of adorable surrogate-sibling moments, and I love that they’re each very aware of what a dork the other is, but the bedrock of their relationship is that capacity not to dismiss one another, and I think that’s a really important thing that gives both of them the ability to grow. It’s honestly my favorite relationship in the entire series, though admittedly more for its potential than for what was actually written between them (THOUGH A LOT OF THAT WAS ALSO REALLY NICE).

2) Dawn & Buffy, also probably surprising zero people. They’re sisters, and they would literally die for one another. I don’t have quite as much to say about the complexities here, but I do think that understanding or at least acknowledging the importance of the relationship is pretty essential for writing either character (assuming this is post-S4 Buffy, of course), even when one of them isn’t present. Each of them just carries a piece of the other around with them wherever they go, and that’s the sort of thing that can’t really be ignored.

3) Dawn & Tara, because I think they were pretty good for one another when they were living in the same house. Tara is a stabilizing influence on Dawn, and in early S5 they shared the experience of being relative outsiders compared to the rest of the group. Dawn also took Tara’s death harder than maybe any other character (with the obvious exception of Willow), and I don’t know that she really gets over it during S7. I think it’s one of those things that sticks with a person, even if it didn’t shatter her quite as much as Buffy’s death.

4) I should point out that if we’re going in terms of the quality of the actual written relationships, the last two spaces should certainly go to Xander and Willow, who were both important to Dawn and who did have significant interaction with her. BUT in fact my crackshipping tendencies 100% extend to platonic relationships between characters who have never met, so I’m gonna talk about something I’m actually enthusiastic about: Dawn & Illyria.

Obviously there is zero canonical interaction between Dawn and Illyria. They have, as far I know, never canonically encountered one another. In headcanon land, though, I hold that Dawn-the-Key and Illyria-the-Warlord-Monster knew one another around the dawn of human history. The Key’s portal-opening ability was an essential part of Illyria’s dimension-conquering strategy, as huge demon armies could be marched through portals, bypassing defenses and long journeys. It’s not the sort of relationship one could describe as a friendship–creatures of Illyria's stature did not have friends, and the Key’s options would have been limited enough that consent to any particular action or ritual wouldn’t have been very meaningful, but certainly there was a rare level of familiarity between them.

When Illyria encounters Dawn again–in AU land, presumably–the two of them dimly remember one another. Their forms are different and their memories have been clouded, but there is still a sense that they did know one another, once, when they were not yet quite themselves. I think Illyria would have more respect for Dawn than many of the other characters, and perhaps would overestimate her current abilities, while Dawn would be unusually unimpressed with Illyria (except when she reminds her that they are very, very old, and that there are pieces of her that no one else may ever know so well as Illyria does). It’s a weird, awkward, ancient thing that not even the two of them really understand, but I really wish I had more writing spoons so I could play with it more.

5) Dawn & Andrew, watcher buddies. I haven’t read the comics, so in my post-NFA headcanon lands, they always seem to end up working for the council and doing a lot of dumb reckless stuff together. They don’t have much of a canonical relationship, but I think they’d play off each other in a lot of really fun ways, especially because both are nerds who are used to receiving minimal amounts of respect. With a little more growing up, I feel like they’d be really good counterbalances for one another.

anonymous asked:

Why did you start to dislike Arc-V?

i’m glad you asked “start” because i would have to write an in-depth essay on why i dislike it overall… so here’s pre-lancers (which was the nail in the coffin considering i had 0 attachment to half of them and failed to comprehend what made them function as a likeable party)

so i think it started because of how disappointing reiji is as a “rival” (he dueled twice in the first 49 episodes, one against serena’s stupid bodyguard dude); then reiji’s plans were vaguely nefarious for ~100 episodes and he was barely admonished because arc-v attempts to run on dramatic irony but fails to understand how to give it intrigue–yuuya is frustrating to watch because of both his inherited smile crusade (which as portrayed in the show is a harmful attitude) and things like “OH MY GOD YUZU’S GONE!!!!!! FUSION TOOK YUZU!!!!!” when the audience and reiji know that she’s fine. 

it’s like yuuya was kept in some sort of plot quarantine; for the first two seasons the only one in pursuit of the plot was yuuto, who appeared every 5 episodes, did something relevant, then was blown away lest yuuya interact with anything moderately important. in the mean time we were subjected to 2-episode duel after 2-episode duel, each long and boring unless you were here for the tcg boner. what made duels in a5 initially interesting was the dynamic action fields– which we eventually lost in favor of reiji’s 8-bit platformer.

the cast is absolutely wasted, one of the things zexal did awful at was introducing too many gimmicky side characters for yuuma’s number club, so it was exciting when a5 had cuter, more interesting characters (and, yes, tcg boner!)… then it just added more… and more… like when highkey shonen anime run into plot walls and go “oh crap what do we do? LET’S ADD 20 MORE CHARACTERS AND ALSO FAIL TO USE THEM.” at least previous ygos have the decency to prioritize their bad casts.

do not even get me started on how we’re supposed to believe the cast thinks yuu4 and yuzu4 look the same when it’s plain as day to viewers that they are different (AND RECENTLY RURI HAD NO PROBLEM TELLING YUUYA AND YUUTO APART?). and the ost of this show, which is already weak in wake of conisch’s departure, is used like a studio audience–“hey kids the ost is sad and therefore you should feel sad rn”

(inhales) (exhales) sorry mom a5 is bad + unfortunately i can’t detach my feelings toward it from my feelings toward zexal considering i watched both of them on sundays for years straight and had to deal with so many people slamming zexal throughout its entire life cycle while sucking a5′s dick despite its constant narrative failures

Why I don't think Pearlmethyst works

Guys I swear I’m not trying to hate on anyone’s ship, and I won’t put this in the shipping tag. But I just had to get this off my chest:

Look I just can’t see Pearl and Amethyst getting together. There I said it. Honestly, it even annoys me a little that so many people ship them because I feel like that decreases the value of their friendship.  

Pearl, in so many ways, is like a big sister to Amethyst. After all when the Crystal Gems found her in the Kindergarten it’s implied that she was really young and took on Rose as a mother-figure. Fast forward to those years Rose and Greg were dating and we see Amethyst portrayed as a kid. It’s implied that she’s still considered very very young in gem-years. And there’s Pearl, making sure that she doesn’t get into trouble, holding her like one hold’s a rambunctious five year old. Amethyst is very much a child in Pearl’s eyes and that makes sense. After all, Pearl is centuries older than her.  

Cut to years later when Rose passes and Steven is born and we see that Pearl and Amethyst’s relationship is very strained. Pearl lost the person she loved and idolised and Amethyst lost her mother figure. We also see Amethyst grow emotionally from an adolescent to a late-teen or young adult. She’s having growing pains, challenging authority, trying to define herself. She’s challenging Pearl like a kid-sister would their older, bossy sibling. In Season 1 the majority of Pearl and Amethyst’s interactions are similar to bickering sisters who love eachother but can’t see eye to eye. Siblings who know how to get on eachother’s nerves and push eachother’s buttons because they’ve lived together for so long.  

Amethyst even hates being compared to Pearl in the same way a teen hates being compared to their older, seemingly more perfect sibling.

And yes they fuse in one episode but that does NOT mean their relationship is romantic. 

If we say fusion is just a representation of sex or romantic relationships we are severely limiting its true meaning. Fusion represents a RELATIONSHIP, both romantic and platonic. It’s about the cooperation and harmony of two different gems wether they’re romantic or not. The point of Season 1’s Giant Woman episode was to introduce fusion, and clarify that Pearl and Amethyst once had a better relationship and could possibly have one again. I think it’s really great that they chose to introduce fusion in a platonic sense first before moving into the idea that it can also be romantic. It’s a really nice evolution.

And yes Pearl has blushed occasionally in her interactions with Amethyst but a lot of people seem to forget that blushing is not always a romantic thing. In most of those interactions where she blushes Pearl is shocked or flattered, not expecting Amethyst to compliment her or make a show of affection. 

Which makes sense. Pearl is a character with extremely low self-esteem who is constantly trying to prove her worth. Of course she would be surprised when someone compliments her, of course she would be shocked and touched when Amethyst chooses to hug her. She’s a vulnerable person who doesn’t immediately expect affection from people because deep down she’s uncertain if she deserves it. Playing off these blushing interactions with Amethyst as purely romantic, I think, is far too shallow a reading of Pearl’s character.

And that leads us to On the Run, and incredibly important episode for Pearl and Amethyst’s relationship. We see the guilt and pain Amethyst has carried for most of her life as a byproduct of Homeworld’s colonisation of earth. She finally snaps and takes out her anger on Pearl who had previously been oblivious to Amethyst’s true feelings. 

But most importantly we see Pearl course-correct and take Amethyst’s feelings into account. This is the moment she stops treating amethyst like an unruly kid sibling having a temper tantrum and starts treating her like the young adult she’s mentally becoming. Not only that, but she makes an effort to see Amethyst’s point of view and sincerely apologies.

And this heart to heart ends with Amethyst hugging Pearl and Pearl hugging her back. And it doesn’t appear to be romantic at all. It’s a gesture of pure trust and understanding. 

These are two people who have struggled to get along for years, siblings torn asunder by loss who are learning to get along and be a family again. And their relationship is all the stronger for it because they understand eachother more now.

And ever since “On the Run” we’ve seen a real improvement in Amethyst and Pearl’s relationship. We’ve seen Amethyst being there for Pearl when she messed up with Garnet in the Sardonyx arc and cheering her on when she stood up to Peridot. 

We’ve seen Pearl compromising more and making an effort to understand Amethyst, supporting her when she takes the time to properly reform her body in “Reformed.”

And when they dance together at Steven’s birthday we see that they’ve each taken on elements of each other’s dance styles. 

However I don’t see this dance as romantic. Just because both Pearl and Amethyst are canon lesbians (Pearl definitely and Amethyst… maybe? I’m not actually sure about that) doesn’t mean they’re automatically attracted to each other. In fact, I think it’s better for the characters that this dance is platonic because it completes their arc.

Finally my last point has to do with Pearl’s overall character arc in the show. From what we’ve gathered in all the previous episodes we know that Pearl was considered a servant-class gem on Homeworld. Worst than that she was considered property, no better than a fancy toy or shiny accessory. 

Now Rose helped Pearl by treating her like an equal, probably teaching her how to fight, and showing her that she could rebel against the role Homeworld made her for. 

But, at the same time, Pearl gained an unhealthy attachment towards Rose, seeing herself as merely an extension of Rose Quartz and not her own person. This is why she was so willing to risk her life for Rose’s safety. She felt she didn’t matter. And, unfortunately, Pearl had a deep romantic love for Rose that I don’t think Rose ever truly reciprocated.

And then Rose passed giving birth to Steven and Pearl was left alone with no one to serve. This left a gaping hole in Pearl’s identity. 

Now keep in mind Pearl is thousands of years old and the majority of that life was spend serving Rose. She’s only been without her leader for 14 years, which to her must feel like the blink of an eye. Rose’s loss is a fresh wound for all the crystal gems, but especially Pearl. For centuries she’s defined herself by the person she served and now she doesn’t even know who she is on her own. And this, in essence, is Pearl’s arc: she needs to learn how to be her own gem.

Now I’ve heard a few people say that they think Pearl having a relationship with Amethyst will somehow help her “fix” herself, and I don’t agree in the slightest. Think about what Garnet said to Pearl in “Friend Ship” when Pearl says she feels too weak and “useless” on her own: “You are your own gem. You control your destiny.”

The LAST thing Pearl needs is to be entering into a relationship right now. That would just give her another person to attach her self-worth to. Pearl needs to learn how to stand on her own, to decide who SHE is and what SHE wants to fight for.

So yeah. All of this is my way of explaining exactly why I’m against the Pearl/Amethyst ship and why I think it’s counter-intuitive to Pearl’s character development. However I’m never gonna hate on those who do ship it just because I’m strongly against it. That’s why I’m not going to put this in the Pearlmethyst tag. I  just needed to collect my thoughts and make this post because I think Pearl and Amethyst’s friendship is really important to both their characters and should be talked about more. 

Thanks to whomever chose to read this til the end. Please don’t send me hate-mail. But if you wanted to have an intelligent discussion with me I’d be more than happy oblige. ^^

what “too short to ride” tells us about homeworld gems

so we got one very interesting confirmation this episode: homeworld is desperate for resources. newer gems, like peridot, are what they consider ‘defective’ - because they can’t make them like they used to. it would take too many resources they don’t have, and that’s why peridot was given her enhancers.

i think this is the first time we’ve really been told any of homeworld’s motivation for attempting to conquer other worlds. we knew they drained the earth to grow gems… but they didn’t fight over earth just to “expand their empire” as a military power. they need resources to make gems.

Keep reading
