this just looks bad but whatever

Was it just me or did it seem like Grundy/Jennifer actually wanted to leave town when they found out about her real name? like she genuinely looked shocked when Archie confronted her with that.  Think about it: what if Grundy knew that Jason was gonna get murdered, or she did it herself, whatever. She would need someone to back her up, be her alibi and she would need an excuse to skip town. 

What if Grundy wanted the relationship she had with Archie to be discovered after the murder so that she could have a valid reason to leave town, making it seem like she had no choice. Perhaps she thought that being caught in such a scandal was better than being caught with murder. 

And if she played her cards right, she wouldn’t get in serious trouble. All she had to do was pretend to be a victim of sexual assault. Blame it on that. She could argue that after such a horrid and violent relationship she wasn’t used to Archies kindness, she felt cherished, she was vulnerable. The person that would find about the relationship would feel sorry for her and make her leave town as expected.  The perfect excuse for her to leave without it looking like she left because of what she did to Jason. 

However, her plan failed as she never expected B & V to find out her real name and now they know a part of a much bigger secret. So now she has to fix that. 

Is it just me or do many (and with many I mean, like 90% of content I see) new hetalia askblogs not care about nationality/culture at all and just use the character for whatever fantasy AU they have in mind? I mean that’s still cool, but I just noticed how the sheer amount of dragon/alien/mlp AUs just drowns out the cultural/historical part of the fandom. Even looking at hetalia blogs that try to capture the whole fandom’s creative community they reblog mostly random AUs.

I am not saying this is bad! It’s great to see new people trying out new things. I dont wanna sound like a bitter old hag here and I am glad there’s so much new content out there.
However, it would be great to see askblogs where the character’s nationality still matters. Just little hints of cultural identity. I think it would give the fandom back some purpose and have less people become disenchanted by the concept of hetalia as soon as their AU’s popularity decreases.

john and i were talking abt the season 4 art and how Bellona just fucking dipped loki for susano and I just went off for no reason omg.


anonymous asked:

Hey, is it ok to start dressing butch just because I want to/deliberately choosing to be butch? I don't mind dresses or skirts, unlike (it seems) a lot of butches. Is it ok if my butchness is a conscious choice?

Certainly! I would argue that butchness is the sort of identity that is much more of a choice than other identities. While some butches were aware that they found femininity alienating at an early age, a lot of us took a more gradual and less intuitive path to deciding/realizing that we wanted to present ourselves to the world in a certain way, and that this way made us feel good about ourselves.


save him

also my commissions are open, if you’d for whatever reason be interested :’)

honestly when I was isolated and closeted and straight people would talk so negatively about gay people who “made it their whole personality” or whatever, it’d make me so anxious and sad. It was always presented like there were

The Good Gays, who were Just Like Everyone Else, and liked straight things, looked Just Like Everyone Else, and didn’t talk about being gay, and definitely didn’t ‘shove it in anyone’s face’ or let it ‘define them.’ 

and then there were

The Bad Gays, who, from what I could tell, were flamboyant gay men and butch lesbians (f*gs and d*kes), proudly out gay people, gay people who liked rainbows and gay culture, politically active gay people, gay people who talked about being gay all the time, gay people with lisps, gay people who are angry, gay people who don’t “pass” as straight, gay people who love being gay and being around other gay people

And I spent so much time early on internally scolding myself. I thought it was wrong to think & talk about being gay 24/7 and enjoy gay culture and feel safest in LGBT spaces. I would always feel guilty and embarrassed every time I brought up anything gay. I thought maybe after a while I’d ‘get it out of my system’ or something and not feel the need for it to ‘define me’ anymore, but it never went away, that intense connection and joy from LGBT spaces and culture. 

But now, look: I have this blog where I can just share every gay thought I have with y’all day after day and no one’s annoyed with me for it. In fact, it’s something that’s appreciated! And I can follow a hundred other blogs by folks doing the same. 

I am The Bad Gay and I love Bad Gays. I’m so relieved to have found you all.

things can’t make you look like a sexuality. it’s very tempting to make easy jokes about “Dan looks like a lesbian”, “Dan’s pastel video is gay” i mean obviously correlations between behaviour and stereotypes do exist but when things are kind of you feeding into heteronormativism and the harmfulness of everybody’s living inside a patriarchy and the bullying that exists within the male-system with things threatening their masculinity - that’s just a bad thing and stereotyping sexuality and behaviour and gender isn’t a good thing - so you can say “that goat looks like a lesbian” or “the flowers, that’s a bit gay” and it’s not necessarily the most offensive thing but on a level it is slightly bad because you are reinforcing those things you know so it’s funny because next time you’ll be like “oh i totally look like a lesbian” it’s like that might seem like that but there’s nothing wrong with a lesbian happening to look like whatever “masculine” is.
what is “girly”? what is “looking feminine”? you go to nature, you got a female lion - they’re all meaty as heck. tell you what, lionesses at the zoo - they’re all thicc, look at those thighs. male lions are skinny as heck sat in the corner. what is “feminine”? who’s to say that a girl has to wear pink and like flowers? gender roles make no sense at all. honestly it’s just one of those things that make no sense - like you can say “men are stronger, therefore they should be the hunters” but in our modern society that means nothing. that’s like grounded in some kind of biology - but wearing pink, liking flowers and not liking flowers - that makes no sense. there’s like literally no background for it. there’s a difference between things that have some kind of evolutionary biological basis that we can say while now in our modern society that’s a pointless issue that we shouldn’t let define us.

So you messed up with animal care...

Maybe things got crazy at work and you missed a feeding day. Maybe you were sick or busy and let enclosure maintenance go for awhile. Maybe you didn’t notice something wrong as soon as you should have. Maybe you just now realized that you had bad information and had been doing something wrong for a long time.

1) Breathe. Everyone who keeps animals has made mistakes. Every single animal keeper that you look up to now has screwed up in their learning process (I don’t know if I’m anyone to look up to, but I have certainly made my share of mistakes). You are not an evil human being for messing up.

2) Fix whatever needs fixing to the best of your ability. Catch up on the things you’re behind on. Fix husbandry you were misinformed about. Take your pet to the vet if they are sick.

3) Think about why this happened and what you can do to keep it from happening again. Do you need to set reminders for yourself? Do you have too many things on your plate and need to let some of them go? Do you need to find a more reputable source for husbandry information?

4) If whatever it was that caused this is something permanent/recurring that you aren’t sure you can prevent then think about whether you are in a good position to properly care for yourself and your animals right now. If you are in a place where you need to focus on your mental or physical health, or just making ends meet, and that is taking all your energy right now, then maybe you need to find someone to help with your pets or find them a new home. Sometimes you need to take care of you first.

5) Whatever you decide, take another moment to just breathe. You are not a horrible person. Whatever happened before is done now, you are going to do what is best for your animals from now on and that’s what matters.

We’ve partnered with MTV’s Look Different (@lookdifferentmtv) and It’s On Us (@its-on-us) to draw attention to stories of those who stepped up and stopped a sexual assault. It’s called Bystander Intervention, and it’s the act of disrupting a situation before something bad turns worse.

We’re asking for help from the Tumblr community. If you have a story to share about your experience with Bystander Intervention, share it.  Not ready to share, or don’t have an example, but still want to participate? We’re also looking for people to make some art based on any of the already submitted stories collected by @its-on-us. A painting, an illustration, some ASCII, a ballpoint pen doodle on a napkin, whatever it is, we want to see it. Just submit it to MTV right over here.

Glad to see that the YOI fandom moved on from the burning trainwreck that was the movie that shall not be named.

Lesson for the future? Don’t get involved at all because whatever terrible thing is going on, it probably isn’t what we think it is and we just end up getting swept up in the negative hype. Just stay calm, breathe, wait and think rationally until everything blows over. There’s a 90% chance that whatever drama was going on was no big deal after all, no matter how bad it looked at first.

Okay, but imagine

like, what if Hawk Moth didn’t become active until a couple years later? And if Adrien was denied the chance to go to public school?


  • Adrien, so sheltered and lacking the freedom that going to school and being Chat Noir gives him, eventually *GASP* rebels against his father.
  • Featuring Adrien, A Little Punk Shit Who Pretends to Be a Bad Boy (but he’s still so soft and smol on the inside like-). He quits modeling and does literally whatever he can to get his dad’s attention. And he gets a bajillion times the media attention because what’s even more interesting than our sweet, perfect, golden boy is an ex-sweet, perfect, golden boy that is now so flirtatious and always gets caught sneaking into places he shouldn’t and secretly wears eyeliner to look like Jagged Stone even though his perfect hair still makes him look like he belongs in One Direction just-

unpopular artist tips

-artist tips are not word of god: they might help but if you prefer drawing differently, keep doing what you want.

-black/white are not necessarily bad: they’re more difficult to work with and in certain circumstances might look better with a pale unsaturated color, but a lot of artists treat them as if they’re toxic . You want to use that black? Do it! Think a nice bright white would look good there? Use it!

-saturated/bright colors aren’t necessarily bad, either: I prefer using bright blues over dull blues, and I make it work. That’s all you have to do. Again, a lot of artists treat them as if they’re toxic. Don’t be afraid to push the corners of the box.

-you know what? just use whatever colors you want: if you can make it work or like those colors, use them all you want!

-draw what you want: if you like drawing cartoony stuff, do it! a lot of art schools apparently force people into drawing realistically (which is not a bad thing, realistic drawings help with perspective/anatomy/posing a lot). don’t think you’re stuck to a certain style.

-adopting from other people’s styles isn’t bad: my art style is a bit of a mix of a couple different things (definitely anime-influenced but I’ve taken concepts from several different artists) because i learned from looking at pictures online. If someone specifically asks not to use their work as a reference, don’t, but most artists I’ve met are perfectly okay with people referencing their art style to try something new.

-don’t force art: if you don’t enjoy it, it shows. your drawing skills aren’t going to disappear if you take a day off. not everyone can draw every day/week/even month. just give it time.

-avoid overexaggerating your dislike of your art, even in your head: Look at it from a relatively neutral standpoint. What would you say if your friend made this? We see the flaws in our own works, and that’s good, but for some people, constant self-hate doesn’t motivate. maybe think like “hmm, this could use work” rather than “this sucks”. This can be difficult, but take small steps.

-all art is good art: because all art has effort. if you tried, it’s good art. maybe not great or perfect, but you tried and i appreciate that.

tl;dr love what you do and do what you love. it shows.

some things i’m pretty sure most artists can agree on

-most creators love fanart. we don’t care if it’s not the best we love you and your art anyways and might be crying on the other side of the screen because you took the time to make us something and we really fucking appreciate that

-reblogs > likes: I love it when someone likes my stuff but that one reblog could be the difference between a much-needed commission and not making the bills that month. (i’m not in this position but plenty of people are)

80, 20, 5

I’ve often mentioned the general breakdown of games player bases as 80%, 20%, and 5%. 80% of players will never engage with anything beyond the game itself. 20% will actually bother to go online and read something about the game, and a mere 5% will be engaged so much as to actually bother to post and communicate with other players. A lot of the really invested players won’t accept this, and with good reason. Just look at all the posts on the forums (or subreddit or whatever). There’s thousands of them! On a busy patch day, the front page will be slammed with posts. There’s no way this is only 5% (or less) of the game’s population, right? Surely there’s more than that!

Or is there?
