Transfixed

As promised an update is here ^_^ sorry it’s pretty short this time I hope to post tomorrow. It’s just that tumblr has a 10 picture limit and I like to make sure each update stops nicely. oh, also the reason why I can’t do any weekday updates is cause I’m taking a class and I get back super late. I’ve also been thinking of doing another huge “construction” to this comic but man it’s gonna be a pain to do. Well I should start it sooner than later before things this comic gets too long tbh

Terracotta Head of Beardless Dionysos Figurine

c. 323 - 31 B.C.

“How could ecstasy be creative if it rose from an insufficiency, from a not-having coupled with a desire to have? The elemental depths gape open and out of them a monstrous creature raises its head before which all the limits that the normal day has set must disappear. There man stands on the threshold of madness – in fact, he is already part of it even if his wildness which wishes to pass on into destructiveness still remains mercifully hidden.”

Walter F. Otto, “Dionysos: Myth and Cult”

Props to Trevor Noah though for putting up with a mountain of cognitive dissonance. 

“[Blaming both sides] is a remarkable phenomenon in which the victim and his tormentor become transfixed on the same scale of moral culpability. Through this process, the former becomes stigmatized; the latter absolved. […] Throughout history, [blaming both sides] has long served oppressors and their defenders as politically correct pretense to deflect responsibility and blame. For far too many others, it is simply a convenient crutch to cop out of confrontation and remain apathetic. On the choice between supporting the oppressed or excusing and enabling their oppressors, I choose the former.”

–  Atif Choudhury | The ‘Blame Both Sides’ Syndrome and Other Hard Truths of the Palestinian Tragedy

okay the one thing that i can’t get off my mind is that while i was talking to dan and phil at the signing phil looked at me really intensely like he seemed so invested and he didn’t blink once and he just didn’t even really have any specific expression but i can’t even describe how i felt while he was looking at me like but like the second i noticed him staring it was hard to look away and i kept darting my eyes back and forth from him to dan but it’s just like wow how the fuck does dan handle that every single day like i now understand why he’s always looking at phil

I just realized I’m already to part 31 jeez idk if I should change the format again so all these links to parts aren’t overwhelming? Or maybe once I reach like part 50 or 40 I’ll merge all those parts to shorten this. well i’m too lazy to do anything now. Sometimes I wish tumblr didn’t have a 10 image limit. 

Also I should probably write down a script for this lol. I just made some major revisions and it’s probably a bad idea to just keep it all in my head
