to mock

Fun idea - Stop mocking aro culture for once. I keep seeing posts joking telling people to go outside in reference to aro people trying to explain squishes and other alloromantic people are mocking the idea of queerplatonic relationships and saying it’s literally just friendship and that people are idiots.

Please, just… Stop. If you don’t understand it, that’s okay! You don’t need to, but if you don’t have the experience you can’t tell people that the way they experience things is invalid or identical to some other thing.

tl;dr: mocking squishes and queerplatonic relationships isn’t funny and I really hope some of you guys will understand that and stop.

I’ve reached 600 followers!

I really can’t thank you enough for this. A year ago my follower count was stuck, and I couldn’t even dream of getting asks or being tagged. Tumblr was just a place where I came to see, not to be seen: No one here knew who I was, and no one cared. And that was okay for me, but there is something really nice about posting a personal post, specially during a crisis, and getting a like or a reply. It means that someone out there sees you, someone out there cares, even if it’s just for a second. 

So, after all that melodrama of mine, let’s get to the important part

To celebrate, I’ve made an Icon page, starting with 100 icons for my 100 new followers.  They are medieval themed, and I will be adding more in packs of 20 or so. Enjoy!

Here are the first two I made, the ones that gave me this idea

Clique
BBC Three

I’ve been really behind on posting to tumblr, aah! I promise it’s because I’ve been working on some very cool secret stuff. This assignment was a nice break! 

I made this set of three gifs for the BBC Three show Clique. I really enjoyed making them, and indeed watching the show–it’s glitzy and pulpy, but I found myself instantly sympathetic to their struggles, and I found their complex relationships so intriguing! Thanks, BBC!
