tagging them because why not i guess

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

  • neurotypical: wow you sure have a lot of friends!
  • me: why thank you for noticing. I really only care about one (1) of them, the others are there to fuel my need for constant unending attention and will be discarded after doing their job. I also lovingly construct a different personality for each and every one of them (:

Even if you never listen to any other thing I have to say, please listen to this:

Stop disparaging your work.

No matter what form it takes, prefacing your work with phrases like, “This sucks; This is probably bad; I’m not a good writer/artist/creator but I did this anyway,” is a two-edged knife and both sides are lethal.

On the one hand, putting yourself down rots away not only any self-esteem you do have, but any you might be trying to build. If the most constant voice in your life – your own – tells you you’re awful, you’ll never be any good, why bother when so-and-so is ‘better’ or such-and-such is ‘more popular’ guess what? You’ll start believing that voice. And, chances are, you’ll stop creating anything at all, because why bother?

The other deadly edge of the knife is that if you’re putting work out there – and I see this all the time – with tags or artist’s/author’s notes that say, “This probably sucks,” or variants, many people won’t give it a chance. They will never even click the read more or the link that might let them make up their own minds because you’ve already told them it’s not worth their time. People are pretty susceptible to suggestion. If you start them off with the thought, “This is going to suck,” even those who do click that read more will be predisposed to see the flaws you’ve prepared them for and think poorly of your effort.

Stop disparaging your own work.

I know it’s hard. I do. Putting yourself out there where anyone can see and anyone can say anything is so terrifying. Creative work is personal. It often leaves us feeling particularly vulnerable. When we’re vulnerable and afraid of being hurt, we often get defensive even before anything bad has been said. A lot of the time, that defensiveness comes out as self-deprecation.

Nothing is ever perfect. Everything has flaws. That’s part of what makes each creation unique. Some people will love your work. Others won’t. That goes with the territory. Make art for the audience who’ll love you, not the ones who won’t. Above all – and I cannot stress this enough – make sure that you are part of that first audience. That starts by not putting yourself down in the instant you put yourself out there.

Creating work is challenging and scary and wonderful and brave. Letting other people see that work? Even more so. Keep working. Keep learning. Keep failing and trying and failing and trying; that’s the only way any of us learn and grow and change and get better. 

But most of all? Stop putting yourself down. You deserve better than that. Yes. You do. You really, truly do.

why am i always motivated to draw gay shit when i’m drunk

2017 Phan

I like how the phandom has decided that 2017 is the year Dan and Phil will come out, move and get a dog (also possibly get married but like honestly isn’t that supposed to happen in 2022?). And whenever Dan and Phil say they’ll do anything (upload a video, do a joint lveshow etc) we get really excited and we’re like ‘YES, this is IT, guys. They are coming out as a couple. They are anouncing that they got a puppy, they got engaged and that they will soon move. I know it. I just KNOW it. I CAN FEEL IT!’. And then it ends up being just another pleasant, domestic, funny video and we just stand there like ‘wut’ for a bit and then we find a new thing to scream about (eg THEY WERE NOT WEARING ANY PANTS)

The Pokécen Six

Somewhat College Bosses AU (age ↓)

He drew Ghetsis as a yukkuri on purpose

Apparently people draw the six of them together a lot and I see that some Japanese artists tag/title pokecen-invasion?? in their pokevillain works related to these six guys on Pixiv (because of that villain promo in Japan I guess) so like why not come up with a combo name for it

Sorry RSE Maxie and Archie though (;´Д`A

Maxie looks so good in this outfit holy Arceus

There are so many things kids should never have to go through or even witness

I'm fucking done

Just to say, this is a rant post to all the people sending hate messages to the septiplier fandom calling them cringy, retarded, annoying, ect.

I ship septiplier, I think its cute but in not aloud to say that on this website am I? I’m not aloud to tag it with “Markiplier” and “Jacksepticeye” am I?

Yeah actually. I am.

Unless its legit sin (or porn what ever you prefer to call it) I will tag Septiplier posts with Markiplier and Jacksepticeye because guess fucking what? That’s the two people in the ship.

If I drew or wrote about Crankiplier, I would tag “Crankgameplays” and “Markiplier” and probably get little to no hate. But because of something Mark and Jack said a long time ago the half of the fandom that’s against Septiplier are toxic.

Yeah I said it.

You people, the ones who call us cringy and toxic little girls are actually the toxic one yourselves.

What’s Mark’s and Jack’s way?

Be kind to all people and respect them.

So why not respect us? I’m sure Mark wouldn’t want me to take a screenshot of my ask box when I post something Septiplier and @ him because we all know he wouldn’t say good job and pat them on the back, he would be repulsed and you know Jack would to.

So for the love of god, stop hating on Septiplier shippers please. I’ve known people who have self-harmed because of the words that people have left in there ask box.

If you want to hate on me, go ahead.

Send me all your pissed off messages because I’m putting this in the main Mark and Jack tags and no I’m not going to delete this post or remove them from the tags.

Spread this around if you believe in it, please. I need people to see this so we can quite possibly make a difference

i’m slowly falling into tanunatsu hell heaven

I mean look at these two in episode 11:

Tanuma, the ever-loving boyfriend, volunteers himself, and no one else, to go visit Natsume, and when the two of them met–

–they’re so relieved (Tanuma) and delighted (Natsume) that it’s adorable.

And in Natsume’s room, Tanuma confesses that he didn’t know what to do if Natsume was in one of those sticky youkai situations again but he came anyway, despite of the possible danger, because he thought that out of everyone, he would be the one able to help–

–and it just shows how much Tanuma actually thought this through, despite seeming to only volunteer on the spot.

And if we look at it, the reason why Tanuma thought he was the one who could help was because he knows what Natsume is going through, and consequently, the reason for that is because Natsume trusts him enough to tell him first about Reiko and his problems in the family.

To be honest, I couldn’t take tanunatsu as a serious romantic relationship because at first, I only ever saw them as platonic friends.

But then I scrolled through the tanunatsu/tanuma x natsume tag here on tumblr and I’m slowly, slowly coming to really like the idea of them being a couple. I’m not quite there yet, but I’m guessing just a little bit more prompting and I’m full on a tanunatsu shipper.

So, yeah. Later, I’mma read some tanunatsu fics, so if you guys have any recommendations then I would appreciate it if you shared some with me ^_^

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

i have pretty much concluded i don’t ship akeshu, not because i love shukita so much but because it’s not my cup of tea, still have a TINY portion of the game left but…

akeshu fans don’t deserve hate… :I I’ve seen people calling them “fujoshi trash”. Like I understand the dynamic behind Akeshu i see it reflected in some of my other ships, it’s just Akechi’s personality I guess? Anyways, a lot of my friends like that ship and I’ve seen the hate for it

like why are you SO MAD that people like something you don’t??? why do you have to call them “fujo trash” and claim they “fetish ship” just because YOU dont like the ship??? rude!!!

I remain eternally baffled by people who seem to regard fandom shipping wars as actual wars - or at least extremely ill-tempered sporting games - in which there’ll be some predetermined point (marriage, apparently, in the case of CS) at which one side is allowed to declare victory and the other is expected to retreat in ignominious defeat. 

This isn’t so much wrong as a complete category error. There is no win condition in shipping. But even worse than being an error, it’s intensely mean-spirited. These people, as far as I can tell, actually want other fans to stop enjoying what they enjoy. It would make them happy if SQ fans walked away from OUAT muttering that they’d been wrong all along and CS actually was true love. Why, for the love of God?

I can only guess it’s because they find themselves incapable of enjoying what they enjoy while a single person disagrees with them about it. I assume that’s why a few determined souls among them persist in trawling through the anti-tags looking for posts to hijack or screenshot and one-sidedly argue with, as if by winning this argument with thin air they can convince themselves that the only people who disagree with them must be delusional or pathetically grasping at straws.

Shipping is one of the most deeply subjective things there is. There isn’t an argument that exists that will convince another shipper to see things the way you do. And those anti-CS metas and fics that anger them much? Aren’t *for* them. They’re for the enjoyment of SQ fans (or Swanfire fans, or anyone who doesn’t like CS).

I wrote a post a while back about the impending CS divorce. I didn’t do it to upset CS fans - that’s why I so carefully anti-tagged it. I didn’t intend for any CS fans to read it at all. I don’t want them to stop enjoying their ship - I hope it gives them great pleasure. God knows it would be nice if some good came out of the hot mess that OUAT’s become.

I wrote about the CS divorce for the entertainment of SQ fans. Because imagining CS splitting up is part of shipping SQ - that’s the start of SQ getting together, at least in any canon-compliant fic or meta. I have fun imagining how it might happen - the angst, the pining, the missed connections! That’s what shipping’s all about.

And - here’s a secret - I’d write metas like that EVEN IF I ACTUALLY LIKED CS. Even if I found them a convincing and interesting couple, I’d want to imagine them splitting up and Emma and Regina getting together, because I’m a lady who likes ladies and I want to spend my leisure time thinking about ladies loving other ladies.

In fact, my ideal situation is one where I *do* like the on-screen het ship, so I can enjoy both it and my subtextual lesbian ship. Well, no. Obviously my ideal would be for an amazing on-screen slow-burn between two central female characters, but I’m a gay woman who’s been around in the world a while, so I’m a realist.

There was a time in season 4 of OUAT when I thought CS might become that kind of het ship for me - dull but unobjectionable. Unfortunately, CS in the last two seasons has been such an unmitigated clusterfuck that I genuinely can’t imagine any future in which they don’t get divorced - or at least not one in which Emma’s happy and fulfilled. To me, all those declarations of undying love are clearly fake, the desperate attempt of an unhappy woman to make herself into the person others want her to be.

And that’s fine! That’s the future I see and enjoy, where CS split up and SQ get together and Emma Swan finally comes to terms with the fact she’s a lesbian. Meanwhile CS fans can enjoy one in which Emma and Killian stay together and live happily ever after.

Neither fandom will get to see their preferred future play out on screen, and that’s probably for the best. Because this is the place those people I spoke about at the beginning need to get to. They need to accept that there’s literally no way to *prove* that they’re right and we’re wrong about CS. What happens on screen? Is open to multiple interpretations. Those competing futures - the one in which CS stays together and the one in which they split up - are equally valid. And unless you’re the kind of person who wants other people to be miserable, don’t you think it’s better that way?

anonymous asked:

Why do you only reblog certain writers stories ? I tag you and you never share mine. I guess I'm not one of your pets

I reblog several stories ! I can’t reblog them all, but I try to share as many as I can. If I haven’t reblogged one of yours chances are it’s because you didn’t have a “read more” cut. I don’t like to reblog without it. I’m sorry if you feel I’ve left you out. I promise that wasn’t my intention. I don’t have pets and I love reading and sharing stories 💜

anonymous asked:

What's your opinion on Jacob? I'm curious haha. What's his part in all of this?

Well, I’m obviously #teamMichael so naturally Jacob isn’t my most favourite person in the world because of that (not his fault to be fair)

One of the thoughts I had when watching 5x02 was that it was really kind of him to be so open to talking about Michael with Sara. It can’t be easy for someone in his situation to talk about his wife’s past love, while being very aware that he was her one true love and all that. So yes I thought he was very kind for so willingly discussing Michael, because I’m guessing that we are meant to assume he has been willingly doing that for Sara ever since they met :) 

HOWEVER I definitely think he’s got some deep role here… in 5x01 we saw all those paper cranes in the drain by their mailbox, and who else would have disposed of them like that other than Jacob? 

Also, I read someones tags in a gifset today with a GREAT theory, which was that Jacob is Poseidon (the guy in charge of the two people after Sara)! This would explain why he isn’t letting them kill her, because I’m sure he does care for her. I reckon he just wants to keep her away from the truth, which is why he’s working with those two

Writer's Tag Game

I was tagged by @electricarmchair thanks! 💜

rules: tag.. people

1. Are there common settings (fictional or real)  that show up in your writing?

No. There isn’t usually a particular setting at all, just…some vague space haha

2. Do you plan before writing, or go with the flow?

Go with the flow, for sure. I’m not afraid to scrap an idea and go in a completely different direction

3. If you could be a colour, what colour would you be and why?

Purple. It’s my favorite…and it’s pretty!

I’ve never even been drunk, so sober all the way. Some of my stuff may have seemed like I was on something, but I can’t blame it on that haha

5. Do you multitask while writing?

No, I get in a kinda intense zone when I’m seriously writing. Though I have composed things in my head while otherwise preoccupied. But then I got too distracted from whatever else I was doing
