(INFPs are one of the rarest types. Even though we can find a lot of us chatting on the internet, it can be hard to find other INFPs in “real life”, because we tend to avoid unnecessary attention. Therefore, we can sometimes feel very alone and different.)
-You feel sorry for the last cookie in the jar.
(A lot of INFPs have a great sense of empathy. We understand other people and their feelings. In some cases, this sense of empathy can even lead us to project feelings onto inanimate objects. I once apologized to a chair for knocking my foot on it.)
-Your room or apartment is full of random, more or less useful stuff.
(Our Intuitive side mixed with our perceiving side makes us idea machines. We are interested by everything. We start tons of projects we won’t finish right now, but maybe later. We keep stuff just in case. We also keep stuff because of sentimental values. Our mind is always rolling and exploring and creating. Our space is representative of our mind.)
-You can’t put your music library on random.
(INFPs are very curious and open-minded. We understand and love many different things. If you are INFP, chances are you like a lot of different kinds of music too. So you need to make playlists unless you want to hear a piano jazz instrumental song right after some gangster rap, followed by an obscure indie band from the 80s.)
I think that what bothers me about it is that somewhere along the way ‘Mary Sue’ stopped being used to malign female characters with chameleon eyes who sang modern songs mid-fic to stun NPCs into silence/bed, treating everyone who uncritically adored them with boring, flippant cruelty, and started being used against capable adult female characters with varied interests and hobbies.
For no other reason than that a woman being adept at many passions is ‘unrealistic.’
I’m still mad about Vivienne de Fer of Orlais, master player of The game, having a shaved head. So I spent the last few hours doing this just to make a point. I was gonna only do like 3 but she is so pretty with rows (and just in general tbh) I couldn’t stop myself lol.
Please don’t misunderstand my intent, Vivienne is gorgeous with or without hair, and I would’ve been fine with this decision if there were Black people all over the game rocking natural hairstyles. But that is not the case. It feels like game devs hear us asking for afro textured hair options, do the least amount of work (”here is an afro and a smaller afro.”) and then call it a day. It’s frustrating.
We’re so underrepresented as it is. And then to finally have a Black woman who is a major character, who lives in a society where fashion is important to the point of being ridiculous, have a shaved head? It’s just lazy and that’s all there is to it.
Like this is where a google image search for inspiration and a little bit of doodling got me. If I can do this then people who are being paid to do a good job can and should do better.
Why do you think Gallavich is more popular than coliver ( should have been conniver)?
‘Coliver’ rolls off the tongue better, I think. ‘Conniver’ sounds too close to ‘conniving’… which, for this particular ship, I suppose you could take that either way lol.
Besides the obvious reasons that Gallavich has been around longer and has had a bit more time to develop a larger fanbase, their storyline is simply better written. The writers spent real time and effort developing one of the best relationships I’ve ever seen on television (before they burned it to the ground).
I’ve always said that while I’m sure Coliver is endgame on the show, I don’t believe for a second that they’re soulmates. I still stand by this. Connor and Oliver have every possibility of being perfectly happy with other people. Gallavich on the other hand, suffer from the opposite problem. No one is sure if they are endgame anymore, but without a doubt, they are soulmates. No one could make Ian as happy as Mickey. No one understands him like Mickey. No one has been there for him like Mickey, not even his own family. And there’s not a single thing Mickey wouldn’t do for him.
For five seasons, the writers on Shameless developed these beautiful characters and this amazing relationship. We see Mickey grow from a rough, violent, closeted thug to someone who finally finds freedom in being with the man he loves. I’ve never seen character growth that comes close to what Mickey Milkovich has given us. And I love the tragedy of it all. Right when Mickey is finally able to admit to himself (and the world) that he wants to be with Ian in every sense of the word, that’s when Ian begins to lose himself. Their relationship has been one obstacle after the next. Mickey’s time behind bars, Mickey’s father, Ian’s illness…
And that’s not to say it’s been one sided. For the first three seasons, Ian fought tooth and nail to be with Mickey. And Ian never stopped loving him, even if it took him seven fucking seasons to say the words ‘I love you.’ This is why I still believe in Gallavich being endgame. If Ian ever utters those words to another love interest on the show, the words will be devoid of all meaning. Mickey is the only one for him. And we see this in S6 and S7 where Ian has the emotional depth of a zombie. He’s only there as a plot device to be improved by his partners. He’s like a blank slate. And when Mickey returns, so does Ian. The real Ian Gallagher. Ian and Mickey shine together on screen. They always have. They literally live and breathe together.

*So much for skipping a month…*
September – “The Closer” plagiarized on
TwitchKR by an artist claiming it as their own
October - A break down of the most recent situation:
On the 1st, the street performance group Maxxam plagiarized “The Closer”’s styling in an ad put up by fans for their 1st anniversary and used those same outfits for their anniversary performances. The group released a statement the same day saying their fans had taken a “special photoshoot” and used it without knowing it was a homage to Vixx (implying credit wasn’t given only by mistake); however, this came after a fan account had already posted
that they didn’t care about the plagiarism, which people mistook as
the official statement and (obviously) were very upset over (other fans also made statements like, “it’s OK
because they’re not idols” >.>;;;).
Starlights objected to the official statement though for several reasons:
* They only apologized to Starlights, and not to Vixx or Jellyfish.
* The original post listed the album as
“Christopher” instead of “Kratos”
- perhaps it was auto-correct, but you’d think they would catch an error in something as important as the name of the album you’re supposedly doing a homage too!
* The idea that it was a photoshoot specifically for the fans but somehow those fans didn’t know (and were not told) it was a “homage” is ridiculous (saying something is a homage only after you’re caught plagiarizing is as common as white on rice).
Basically, their statement was that they did copy the styling on purpose but, through some “mistake”, the credit to Vixx got lost. The fact that Maxxam didn’t even do a cover of any Vixx songs at the event in question further diminished the “homage” narrative’s credibility (they’ve only ever done covers of “Chained Up” btw).
On the 2nd, they released a longer statement and, to their credit, seem to be fully aware of and sorry about the situation. They apologized for the fan account mentioned earlier and said they would be contacting Jellyfish directly in order to deal with any issues of copyright infringement. Expanding on the original explanation, they said the photoshoot was an event prepared for their anniversary specifically using Vixx as the concept, but that there was a problem in relaying that information to the fan club in advance of the event.
While many are satisfied that the problem has been resolved properly, some Starlights still aren’t happy with the explanation and question how they could just send out something as important as a concept photo for such an important event without adding such a huge (and legally crucial) detail (imagine if it was Vixx using TVXQ as a concept and oops forgot to say so…
💀). And, again, the fact that they did no covers of Vixx songs at the event causes people to continue to question how exactly it was a “homage”.
Three more months Starlights… ugh.
Plagiarized is in quotes in the title because some of these are up for
debate. The ACE one for example; it could be that Starlights are just a
bit sensitive at this point (can you blame us?), but some feel a case
can still be made about it so I’m including it here (not a case against
the group of course, but rather the bnt stylist running the shoot).
I lowkey kind of dont like the “use pen all the time!!” argument bc while it DOES help alot w making urself feel more sure about your strokes, it can be a real fuckin struggle if youre like me. Like I use pencil bc i can erase, of course, but im scared of pens bc i have such an unsteady hand; its terrible lmao i like clean, crisp lines but i simply CANT do that with pens.
Those penmanship videos?? The speeddrawing videos with perfect slow lines?? I cant do that; my hands get all shaky and the lines come out too wobbly. So i have to do quick strokes to make anything look decent. Bt that means if I do that with pen, theres a 95% chance that the lines will overlap and get messy n wobbly, its ugly™. Pencil makes it look nicer bc i can erase those 15 extra, unnecessary lines i keep accidentally making
I dunno what the point of this was, just that my hands are shaky, not all artistic advice works for everyone, and dont feel bad if some of the professional art tips just Dont work with you.
