there's not really anything i can tag this as

okay but

I don’t Discourse, but I get so angry when people dismiss asexual’s people’s problems as something like “Boohoo, you don’t want to fuck, no one gives a shit”.

But it’s so much more than that. Obviously it’s not homophobia, never was and never will be. It doesn’t even compare, it’s not the same thing at all. 

But there are issues asexual people face like - there is pressure, part of it from society, and a lot of it come for ourselves. And that kind of self-hate and self-loathing and thinking you’re broken and unloveable, developping unhealthy sexual behaviour and self-harm - it’s a thing, it’s definitely a thing, not something 14-year-old kids on tumblr made up for attention. It can really mess you up, mess your relationships up, and people are so afraid to talk about it - I read words of older people - and I don’t mean people my age, I mean people in their 50s, their 60s - probably they don’t even know asexuality is even a thing, they got married and had kids and always felt wrong, because they hate sex and they never wanted it and never felt comfortable around it but they did it, quietly, never said a fucking word, and hated themselves a bit more every single time because they never understood why they felt they were missing what they were always told was supposed to be a fundamental part of themselves. They spent their entire life thinking they were broken.

and. it’s not homophobia, it’s not bigotry from an entire society keeping you from jobs and housing, etc. there’s no stats or anything. And maybe a lot of non-asexual people relate to this self-loathing, too. Things are never completely clear cut - there is always some overlapping. It doesn’t make it any less important. It’s still a thing that most asexual people go through, at least for part of their life, and it can really, really mess someone up. And there’s no need to get into discourse or into any (useless and frankly asinine) comparisons - it just needs to be taken seriously for what it is, because people’s health and happiness are what’s at play and it matters, too.

So I was browsing the reaper76 tag the other day and I found this really cool comic about 76 being a lycan and I swear to jesus, I did not know that it was your work until I got to one of the last panels and saw 76's nose. And I just feel you should know that, more than almost anything else, the thing that defines your art style for me is the way you draw noses. There's other stuff too, like the line work and dynamics, but I can always recognize a drawing of yours if it's got a nose


ASDASDASDd I GUESS I DO HAVE A THING FOR NOSES.

The villagers were all staring at him expressionlessly. Coldly. The village head threw the bright red fabric at his feet. Her cruel expression was shrouded in darkness.

“Leave!” she barked. “Leave and let the wolves be done with you.”

There's been a lot of negativity towards the past four episodes, and I was wondering if that has to do with the episodes being weekly. For comparison, you think the stretch of episodes from The New Lars to Kiki's Pizza Delivery would have gotten a worse reaction if they weren't released daily?

Well there was some people who didn’t like ‘The New Lars’ (it wasn’t a favorite for me either, but it wasn’t exactly a bad episode, just not my thing) but … It wasn’t anything like this.

Back then, you really had to dig into the tags to find a lot of negativity, but nowadays, you can hardly escape it without unfollowing and blocking a bunch of people. It’s taking over the fandom.

I don’t think being on a weekly schedule has anything to do with it. Yeah, it makes the impatient fans a little more impatient. But the heavy criticism (if you can even call some of it that) that’s going on? It’s unreal …

It’s just … Some people started pointing out some bad things with explanations that made sense. Those posts got a lot of notes. And that started the snowball effect. Now it feels like everyone and their mom is being overwhelmingly critical.

For the record: Yes, I’m okay with criticism. There is nothing wrong with pointing out things you don’t like. There’s nothing wrong with not liking or even hating episodes. I’m the last person to tell you to stop. You’re entitled to your opinions, and you can literally do whatever you want with your blog.

I don’t like it, but I can accept it. What I can’t do is understand it, I guess.

If you hate something so much … Why are you putting so much energy to it? What does it do for you, personally? Does it satisfy you? Does it make you happy when you find a lot of people agree with you?

And I’ve seen some critical blogs say “I don’t hate SU”, and well … I just don’t see how when they have next to nothing good to say about it. Maybe they have sideblogs for their positive SU blogging?

I just want everyone to have a good time, including the critical ones. If SU isn’t making you happy anymore, or not happy enough, then please pour yourself into other interests that you love! Please do what makes you happiest.

And while I don’t understand it, if picking out the flaws in SU is one of the things that makes you happy, I won’t judge! Make sure to tag it for those who don’t wanna see it, and blog to your heart’s content.

But to the critical ones who are doing it for the drama, and doing it to get a rise out of people, and start arguments, and especially to the ones directly attacking the Crewniverse over these things:

Stop. The fans who love the show and the Crew who work on it are living, breathing people. You’re breeding so much hate and succumbing to so much hate yourself, and I implore you to please partake in healthier, happier hobbies.

I know a big part of this critical trend will die down with time, but … I come here to cope and talk about the show I love, and some days it’s very hard when all I see here is how much everyone hates everything.

hey!! i've been looking at your art and it's absolutely gorgeous (i'm even considering buying one of your stickers, even though i'm trying to save money....oops) and i was just wondering, if you wouldn't mind sharing, do you have any tips for an artist still learning?? i'm still trying to both figure out my style and actually learn to draw so anything you can and want to share is great, but it's also totally cool if you'd rather not answer!

well thank you!! id love to help out if i can! i covered a bit of advice on practicing anatomy in this post, and theres a bit more under my #tutorial tag :o

but there are many other artists out there who have already said stuff much better than i could, so ill direct you to another post below– i really recommend practicing these concepts!!

and i will also add a few tips of my own:

  • draw as often as possible. i mean it, you will become much more comfortable with drawing if you make it a daily habit. if you’re intimidated using a sketchbook (i always get anxiety that ill “ruin” a nice sketchbook with a bad drawing), use printer paper instead. that way there’s less pressure and you can throw it out if you really dont like it.
  • if you can, get yourself a pinterest! i use mine to organize all my references and inspirations into different categories and its a great place to browse when im running low on ideas (especially bc it doesnt have as many of the same distractions as other social media!)
  • there is no such thing as a perfect artist, no matter how skilled they are. im still learning, and i have to remind myself that the artists i look up to are still learning too. different people have different strengths, so it’s okay if you’re not good at everything.
  • dont stress too much about your “style,” focus more on just learning basic drawing techniques and the style part will come naturally, eventually. and its totally okay to try new things, see what you enjoy best, and study other people’s style to identify which elements appeal to you!

hope that helps, best of luck!!

Alright, so I keep seeing in the tags a lot lately of ways to “get memories” or find “cannon mates” from past lives. These posts are particularly aimed at fictionkin in general.


The thing is though, you can’t force memories. This applies to any past life. If you are trying to force memories, or actively searching for them, your mind will likely come up with something, it will create false memories to sate your longing. Searching for cannon mates will also likely lead you to blind acceptance if not considered effectively. I’m mostly going to talk about past life memories in this post however.
 
_________________________________

Meditation -


Meditation is a great tool, but one that should be used more effectively than going into it actively looking for memories. Don’t force it. Memories will come or they won’t. Not all fictionkin or otherkin have past life memories, its not a requirement.

If you sit, lie down, or what have you, and go into a meditation specifically for memories, your mind is most likely going to come up with something. If you go in expecting things, they will likely happen. You need to remember to discern between what is a memory and what is more likely confirmation bias. Introspect on what you find, think about how it made you feel, or didn’t feel

Theres more to memories than “seeing them” during meditation. Think about how your human memories today feel, compare them. Are they stronger or weaker? Do you see these memories in first or third person? Take your time with it.

If you are not questioning what you see in meditation, than it is pointless to your spiritual development and learning.

_________________________________

Sigils -

Using “sigils” to find past life memories is also an ineffective way to find anything about yourself. Thats not really how they work. Using sigils is another thing that can essentially trick your mind into making up memories. I see them all over the otherkin tag.

They are more for giving a ‘boost’ to attain your goals through subliminal messaging, like: “I will get a good nights sleep” into a sigil to give a boost in helping you sleep well. Used alone, this probably won’t do much, especially if you are suffering from insomnia. Sigils won’t help with that without some other outside help. 

Like I said, they are more like a ‘boost’. Using them to find memories.. I highly discourage as they are another thing that will likely lead one to confirmation bias. You are the one putting energy into the sigil to make it work, and therefore you are likely creating what memories may come from it usually. If memories found are not introspected and questioned upon, than they are useless.

Using sigils to find cannon mates is just as ineffective, and also something you should be more wary about. I know that finding those you ‘used’ to know in another life is something a lot of ‘kin would like, especially when it comes to ‘shared memories’. However, if souls are meant to find each other, they will. Actively searching can lead you to the wrong people, manipulative people that will use your ‘shared life’ as some kind of power of you. Don’t fall into that, nothing is worth that when you have your life here in the present. The past is the past, and your life is here now. The people who are meant to be in your life will find you.

_________________________________

Pendulums - 

Pendulum readings are one of the most common and worst offenders on this site. I’ll make it clear before I go on that: Pendulums can’t tell you what your kin/fictotype is. They can’t tell you if your memories are legitimate or not. And they can’t tell you if someone is your cannon mate or not.


Pendulums work by impulse from the users mind; it is a tool to pull answers from the users subconscious. Some stranger on the internet with a pendulum knows nothing about you or your past lives. Using a pendulum yourself for this kind of thing, and going in skeptical and with a questioning mind, is the only possible way that you may find an answer to something. Even then, it is not a reliable way to find the truth.

_________________________________

Meditation, Sigils, Pendulums, all of these making their way around need to be more questionably considered than taking them off the bat as 100% effective ways to find things about oneself.

Introspection. Self Questioning. Research. Time. 

Take these into effect when looking for answers to yourself. There is no sure fire way to get what you are looking for. There is nothing valid about past lives or past life memories. They are a belief, a legitimate one to have, but are in no way valid. Keep that in mind when thinking about these things.

“What’s messin’ you up, Kra-” Lup starts to ask, but is quickly cut off by Kravitz.
“I wanted to ask your permission to marry Taako.” He swallows hard, making eye contact now.
Well. Not what she expected.
She also didn’t expect to be shaking and sweating at the idea.

Is it an autism thing to have a really quiet 'head voice' (like the one you get when you think) that when people talk or you listen to anything or there's any noise that's slightly Too Loud just gets completely overwhelmed and kinda muted by them and you can't think or read properly and it's super hard to process things properly especially your own thoughts. (Not sure if you tag these kinda things but can you tag this as from @on-the-brink-of-a-meltdown because it's my sideblog)

Yes it is. I like how you described it :>. -Mod Birb

OOC: One thing that keeps me going, to keep continuing to draw without a break, is you guys. Whenever someone reblogs, i read all the tags because they really make me happy. Heh, i even have a folder on my computer with screenshots of some tags people put/say about my artwork! It gives me the extra boost just to keep going and if i stop, i feel like ill be letting you guys down or you might forget about me. It really makes me special to see a group of people support me because im not the best, im not like other artists, im not like the other dailys, they’re truly amazing and im the runt of the group, im always the runt in every group im in. So i just wanna say, thank you and yeah i might go through a lot of things but ill try to draw, even if im not on the computer, busy, at school, studying, etc. I regret what i said last night, i feel like i was being an attention seeker heh.

OOC: No follower deserves to suffer, take my support babu

Hi guys!! I know I’ve made posts like this before but its been a while I think, so again, if theres anything at all you guys would want me to tag for stuff please let me know!! Especially if you followed me for cute art or RAINBOW! and arent expecting any gore, because I do draw some from time to time. I already tag stuff that I can think of but sometimes I miss things or don’t think of something! Even if you want me to tag something that might sound silly or you don’t think I would draw it anyway, please let me know!! It takes pretty much no time for me to tag something so it really isn’t a problem.

hello, recently my mum hasn't been the lets say "biggest fan of my skating" and hasn't taken me to our local rink in about a month (I cant drive) I've gotten quite sad about this but she wont take me to my lessons or just to practise at a rink, I'm not familiar with off ice training but if theres anything I can do to keep training i would be grateful if you could tell me.

try our off ice training tag or the master list of off ice made by our wonderful admin Asyn

Is there anyway you could use public transport to get to the rink? maybe it would show your mum that you’re really passionate and she might ease up. Good luck.

*curtsies* Duke, I was going through your tags earlier and I saw that you didn't plan on reading any Stephen King's books because of spite. Why do you spite him (or his writing?), if you don't mind me asking? I'm very curious

*Curtsies* Not sure where you found that because I can’t find it. Under the Stephen King tag I’ve said pretty consistently that I’ve never read his work just because it isn’t really a genre that appeals to me. I don’t really have anything to add to what’s in that tag already.

Spider Web

Pairing: Platonic Lucius Malfoy/Severus Snape; implied Draco Malfoy x Hermione Granger 

Setting: Modern, non-magical; future time-stamp for the Chaos Theory AU

Word Count: 922

Written For: @punknicole [#payback2k15]

Notes: This takes place about six months after the end of Pinky Promise. It can technically standalone, but I’d recommend reading it as the introduction to the next fic in the series, which will be posted soon.

Link: ao3


Draco fucking hates Monthly Sunday Brunches with his father.

He has to wear a tie and laugh at Lucius’s god-awful Hank Hill impressions and order something bland and boring and All-fucking-American because that ugly asshole editor at the Huffington Post—who had gone to, like, a public school in fucking Ohio and live-Tweeted his most recent re-watch of The Cable Guy, like, come the fuck on—had decided putting lox on a goddamn bagel was culturally appropriative.

It’s half past ten and Draco can’t even get drunk.

And he couldn’t invite Hermione because they aren’t married yet and he couldn’t invite Theo because Theo’s mother is a Democrat and while he could theoretically have invited Blaise because of the whole minority voters thing, Blaise had been too busy, like, brooding about Daphne breaking up their weird little threesome, and he’d just thrown a box of Thin Mints at Draco’s head when he’d tried to, like, physically coerce him. Or whatever.

I’m alive! here are 2 of my favorite July spreads + the set up! I went to AX so I really wanted to stick in some of the stuff I brought back, and ended up making the pages bright and pastel with a bit of black for the edge™. I’m really happy with how they came out 💖🍉☄
