Jyn, if you’re listening, my beloved…so much of my life has been wasted.I try to think of you only
in the moments when I’m strong…because the pain of
not having you with me…your mother, our family.
The pain of that loss
is so overwhelming…
I risk failing even now.
It’s just so hard not to think of you.
Think of where you are…my Stardust.
i had a bit of an internal debate over posting this. Yesterday i had this idea that my art just felt… detached. like i was drawing it but it didnt feel real, so i thought, you know what i’ll do a more emotional piece, and you dont really get more emotion than sheer unadulterated rage, so i drew my OC being pissed af but when i finished, it almost seemed a bit… too much.
I dont know, its too emotional and dark even with the pink and blue highlights and im honestly not sure how i feel about that.
hi! do you have any strong opinions or hcs about the dirk+jane friendship? i really like your dirk stuff and i love this relationship and it would really make my day to see some of your hcs or meta! (not as a couple tho thats ew)
I basically think that Dirk and Jane are the closest, purest platonic friendship in possibly the entire comic and I love them deeply?? The alphas feel closer to me than any other group, and the Dirk<->Jane relationship is the only one among them that isn’t tinged by either romantic interest/pining or repressed resentment.
Like. Roxy and Jane, they are best friends, absolutely, but we know from canon that Roxy honestly and actually felt quite bad about Jane literally just not believing even the tiny bits of the reality of her situation that Roxy let slip (her “mom” being dead is the one she talks about) and felt awful about having to “lie” about living in post-apo future partially because Jane would never have believed them anyway. Like. There is a lot to unpack there. Add that to their weird thing with Jake, too – not competing over him, exactly, that’s the wrong word, just, Roxy constantly being frustrated about the situation and Jane just willfully refusing to see that, and blah blah.
Jane and Jake’s relationship is obviously weird because of the way they dance around each other’s romantic inclinations and Jane sort of holds Jake on this pedestal as her Crush before she thinks of him as her Friend, and part of Jake’s relationship to Jane is having to always be vaguely receptive and live up to that view of him while not actually giving her an opening to make anything official. So that’s weird. They’re close but there’s a performative element to aspects of their relationship on both sides that’s hard to look past.
And of course, Dirk and Roxy have the one sided pining, the last people on earth baggage, the mutual guilt, they love each other more than anything in their own weird way and are so fucking close it hurts but that guilt and resentment between them is a wall covered in thorns and spikes and poison.
And then Dirk and Jake, which is as far as I can tell and I’ve mentioned this before, a story about two boys who have loved each other for basically EVER, but Jake never let himself think about it that way until it was too late and he’d already given Dirk the impression that he COULDN’T and then the AR happened and everything got weird and difficult and frustrating fast.
So Jane and Dirk. There is NONE of this there. Like maybe it is just me but I NEVER got the impression that Jane found Dirk romantically appealing, which means that Dirk doesn’t have that swirling self loathing about being unable to reciprocate like he does with Roxy. They are just two actual best friends who share a bunch of interests and enjoy talking to each other and respect each other’s opinions and capabilities, they’re just FRIENDS.
As a side note – I think it’s so cool that (what I think is) honestly the closest most purely platonic friendship in homestuck is between a man and a woman, because I see it so rarely, media creators rarely extend the self control to keep man/woman relationships platonic from all angles, even when they DO there’s often a sub-arc where one side or the other freaks out like BUT DO I LIKE THEM LIKE THEM OH NO or DO THEY LIKE ME LIKE ME OH NO and neither ever happens with Jane and Dirk. And I love it. So many of my personal platonic friendships throughout my life have been with men and I get so fucking tired of the overarching narrative that it’s impossible. Okay. Side note over.
I loved Jane and Dirk’s conversation on the quest beds so fucking much. Like. I think there is still a lot more for them to work out, and Jane’s lingering resentment/jealousy over Dirk ending up with Jake after all is something they need to deal with – I think that conversation indicates they WILL deal with it though. They weren’t quite ready right then, they were still in the anger phase of everything (not at each other, but partially at Jake and partially Dirk’s own self loathing at work), but I think they will work it out and go back to being best friends.
The only “negative” things I have to say about it is that they both mutually do not seem to “get” each other’s biggest flaws – but uh, none of the alphas really do and that’s part of why when they all get together in person everything gets shitty so fast – but I think they will get better about this, too, and the REASON they miss the mark at first is because they are both so anxious to think well of the other, they don’t let themselves look too hard at the bad stuff. I think they can reconstruct their friendship on earth C with a better understanding of one another and end up closer than they were before all the shit went down because of it.
I’m not going to share the post or get to much into it because I really don’t feel like dealing with it but…
I just read a post on here, a debate between someone who is pro-life and someone who is pro-choice about paid time off after having a child and the pro-choice person says “so you think only people who can afford them should have babies?”
UH YES. If you can’t afford to care for a child why the FUCK would you think it’s a good idea to have one? I swear to the good lord above, I can’t handle some of the people in this world..
@swordlesbianopinions okay i’m like, really sorry but my friends enabled me to make this post so i have to ask:
do you know anything about a game called Transistor
you play as this fierce lady here,
and while she herself is not a lesbian, 3/5 of the game’s central characters are in fact clearly canonically gay.
these are the other guys. only one of them is not gay. one of them is gay for your player character. two of them are married.
there’s also a couple enby minor characters?
it’s very very pretty and very sad and i just, think this game is something you should know about,,
[if you’re actually interested i’d be more than happy to tell you about the actual mechanics and atmosphere and such, and also maybe just straight-up give you a copy because i’ve bought several copies to just hand out to anyone interested]
I have looked at this countless times, and this is the first time I’ve realized that you weren’t asking for JOBS aliens could be working. (Law firms, Hollywood, schools, and government would have been my top suggestions.) Anyway…
1. “So far, they haven’t found us. But the others have stopped answering our signals. I think we’re the last ones.”
2. “The worst part is, they look almost human. Almost.”
3. “You’re the last person I expected to find shelter with, you know that?”
4. “The nice ones keep us as pets. We live in their houses, but as long as we embrace them when they come in the room, and act cute whenever they’re around, we’re treated well. Those are only the nice ones, however.”
5. “It wasn’t like the movies. It’s NEVER like the movies.”
6. “I was their prisoner, or so it seemed. The truth was a little more complicated.”
7. “They actually aren’t so bad, generally speaking. Unless they touch you.”
Hi baby! Well I’ve been on sooo many that hasn’t worked :/ the one that I am on right know actually works for me :D so it’s ofc the one I’m gonna suggest. So since I’m a binge-eater and eating will make me want to eat more and more. I only eat lunch (since i always have lunch with friends and have to).
Cut out all white-flour and sugar and ONLY eat veggies and fruit :) you can eat how much veggies you want to, if you want it throughout the day or just 1 meal like me, that’s fine UwU
this will not make you gain weight! So I eat some veggies to lunch and that’s it. Keep away from bread, pasta, rice, chocolates and all other junk food. Exercise for about 30 minutes a day and you’re all set for success. Wish you all the best
hey I think youd like game Firewatch (cause of the vibe and couse of delilah i love her) and Memoranda (because it looks goddamn cool and the vibe is also cool and is based on haruki murakami's stories) and idk Oxenfree maybe cuz it reminds me of you
!!!!!!!!!!!!! i watched a playthrough of firewatch last year and i rly rly liked it omg, i loved the graphics and the atmosphere a lot………
AND DUDE OXENFREE… IS MY FUKCING 2ND FAV GAME RIGHT AFTER NIGHT IN THE WOODS… its one of the only games i actually bought and didnt just watch a playthrough of lmao. i played it like 12 times already i love it (i love the two idiots ren and jonas hksjdf)
i never heart of memoranda before but i will check it out!!!!!
oh came across the Garak-sexuality wank that I had previously only heard about in brief side-reference….. it’s about as baffling to me as the Dax wank earlier……
Anyway I think it’s a lot easier and more intuitive to read Garak as canon-gay than canon-pan…. but it’s technically interpretable either way. (for instance, it’s not as if Garak initiated a kiss with anyone and told them he was in love with them!! that completely hypothetical example would make this more definitive!)
so yeah It’s not wrong to watch the whole show w/ all evidence presented, and come away knowing in your very gut that Garak is agay lizard. You can interpret him as a pan/bi lizard too if that feels more right to you, that’s also legit I guess! but like, it’s not against canon to say he’s gay.
I read one anon here that xe didn't feel anything when kissing someone, that reminded me of my first kiss (the only kiss I've ever had). It was with a good friend of mien I had a crush on at the moment, however I felt nothing. I sometimes think of kissing people and that's it. just THINK. is it possible that I'm an Ace of Arrows?
I don’t know if it’s just me, but this line surprised me so much but in the good way?
He isn’t worried about the possibility that people see him in a situation like this with an other man. He is just worried people think he doesn’t take the competition seriously.
For any other anime with fanservice it would have been some teasing like “they’re gonna think I’m gay / dating a man” or else.
So this is making me so much happy because it convinces me even more this ship is treated seriously, and not just like some queerbaiting since the question of gender hasn’t
even been mentioned once in this anime!!!
