we as you and me

Hey so an explanation of why I don’t want usuk shippers reblogging my platonic atlantic bros art:

Regardless of whether or not you consider the ship incest, when your blog content has both their familial relationship and romantic/sexual relationship it creates a cognitive dissonance. If your content connotes that these characters can be both relations and lovers, what’s being implied here is that you’re okay with incest in this situation. You can’t have both and not imply incest.

And since incest is an inherently abusive dynamic and undermines necessary healthy platonic relationships, I want no connection with it and would like my art not to be used to normalize it. My anger towards usuk fans for repeatedly ignoring my requests (which I have made clear in the captions of my art) is in my opinion justified.

I sincerely hope this is the last time I ever have to say this, but

if you are a fan of usuk, DO NOT reblog or like my platonic Atlantic Brothers art.

If you do so anyway, you will be blocked. I’m not going to tell you what to ship or send anyone anon hate over this. But this is not something I’m comfortable with or think anyone should be comfortable with and I’m going to be vocal about it because I’m critical of fandom spaces normalizing abusive relationships.

Just sitting here thinking about how good a feud between Sami and Tye would be.

Like the parallels between them? Both are (or were) faces who just exude happiness, and love (or loved *sniffles*) the audience and focus a lot of their energy into bringing the audience joy from the moment they come through the curtain (just think about their entrances and the way they’re always facing out to the crowd, turning to see everyone and let everyone be seen).

Neither has had the main roster run that they hoped for or expected.

Idk I think they’d have a lot to promo about…

Open letter to Nuria Tiburcio

Dear Nuria,

First of all, thank you for gracing us all with another shitty article in which you make it very clear that you have no idea about anything even though you claim to be an expert. 

If you cared at all and did a little research instead of just basing your articles on pictures and stuff you read on crappy forums (yes, Nuria, we all know you do that) you might have discovered a couple of things before getting down to write:

1. They were offered both sidra and mosto. In case you don’t know, mosto is simply grape juice although in this particular area it is very common to make mosto with apples instead (there is an insane amount of apples in Villaviciosa, most of Asturian sidra is made in the area). Mosto is significantly darker than sidra, specially in this case as it had just been made and was 100% natural.

2. When you drink sidra (or un culín de sidra), you throw away what remains in the glass after you have taken a sip. If you would have watched the videos, you would have noticed that while King Felipe throws away what remains in his glass (which, by the way, was way greener than the other stuff they drank), they only take a little sip from the second beverage they are offered and keep what is left. She is from Asturias and trust me, if that had been sidra she would have thrown it away because it is even considered impolite to not do it. Also, since mosto is very sweet you only take a small sip, not a big sip as one does with sidra.

So, yeah, there’s that.

I know that writing an article saying that Queen Letizia drank mosto wouldn’t get you that many hits but you can’t fool everyone, I’m sorry, Nuria. I’d like to think that you did not know about this because you’ve never been lucky enough to visit Asturias and have sidra in a decent llagar or chigre while eating God knows what Asturian delicious food. Anyway, now you know.

Love,

Someone who will expose you every single time you lie. ♥

Everyone after WKM: omg.. That’s so sad…! I cannot believe darkiplier has gone through so much;; oh my goodness!

Me after WKM: *narrows eyes, trying to determine if this is the truth or just some fake lore dark is using to manipulate us*

“All these portraits look slightly similar, and there’s a reason for…”

Erm¬ I’d heard of her. She is quite well-known if you are into 18C art, and her portrait of Watteau is also frequently reproduced in stuff about him.

It’s also the case that the 18C pastelists are generally not as celebrated as the oil painters. Quentin de la Tour is a male example, who is superb, but not a household name.

Well, of course she is well known, but I’ve never thought of my tumblr as a blog to be targeted to people who are totally “into 18thC art” or fashion. I’ve always thought of posting stuff that can be attractive to people who have been in love and learnt/studied/are into the 18th century fashion/art/music/history but that can also be read and enjoyed by people who just like the 18th century aesthetic or are curious about it or have never really read about it. I mean, if I only write for the “experts” then, what’s the point? It’s like telling to the people stuff they already know.

Also yes,  the pastelists are not as well known as the oil painters, and that might be because it was a medium very much in fashion during the 18th century but not as much during the next century (even though the 19th century has wonderful examples of pastel artists), and also the way the works are so delicate to keep and even display, that’s why even though there are many museums that have in their collections art by Carriera or Liotard or De La Tour or even Degas, they are not always on display, thanks to the pastel being very fragile and light sensitive. Which is very sad, since it’s a wonderful medium and oh, I love my pastel artists so much <3

Also, I think De La Tour or Vigée le Brun are quite better known for the common eye than Carriera, and that might be that the art from mid to late 18th century is definitely more appealing to the modern eye that art from early 18th century (too much baroque turning into rococo is kind of weird for most people who are not used to see such art, that can even be perceived as cheesy nowadays).

And last but not least, let’s not forget that women artists are usually less seen and talked about, so I never miss the opportunity to talk about one of them and, as an anecdote, I’ve even seen books about 18th century art that only mention her but have a bigger space for other artists like Watteau but USE HER WATTEAU PORTRAIT TO ILLUSTRATE THE MAN. This kind of decisions seem ridiculous to me.

Thoughts and theories post S307

We got a clue to how the different dimensions work. These three dudes are obviously iterations of the same Rick who all encountered the same event in varying degrees of severity. It could just be that these three dimensions are right next to each other, but the numbering convention suggests that they’re true splits from one original dimension, caused by that event. 

If that’s true, it means that every time a major event occurs, timelines splinter into different offshoot possibilities. The Ricks that stay most “normal” keep their original dimension number and the others take on an iteration of that number based on the level of divergence. This also helps account for how the population of the citadel bounced back so quickly after the massacre in S301. As time goes on more splits in dimensions means a constant influx of more Ricks and Mortys.

Not every rick invents the portal gun. The portal gun is rick’s ultimate source of power and what allows the citadel to exist. From what we learned from the half-truths in S301′s portal gun origin backstory, Ricks ostensibly go from dimension to dimension giving portal technology to other Ricks rather than each Rick inventing it on his own. Plus we saw in the last episode that the Mortytown Rick tries and fails to make portal fluid, and cop Rick calls it out “bootleg,” plus the factory Rick demands a portal gun because he must not be able to make one of his own. 

For the Ricks that didn’t invent their own, portal fluid and guns are regulated and not allowed to all Ricks freely. It begs the question of how many Ricks actually invented the portal gun on their own. In theory, it would only take just one figuring it out and then sharing it with all the others.

More evidence for Evil Morty = Rick’s original Morty. This has been a fan theory since Evil Morty first showed up but after S307 the evidence is even stronger. Evil Morty dodges questions about his original dimension and Rick, instead diverting with “we moved around a lot.” That basically leaves the door wide open for the reveal of him being Rick’s og Morty.

Plus, if the moving around part wasn’t a lie, that means he and Rick skipped universes Cronenberg-style more than once (Rick did say he’d pulled that stunt before). Think how disillusioned just one dimension move made our Morty, it’s no wonder Evil Morty turned into what he is if he went through multiple ruined dimensions. Beyond that, our Morty has been shown to be getting more jaded and downright cruel this season, enough that people were thinking he was turning into Evil Morty. If our Morty has devolved into his current state with just being around our Rick for a few years, imagine how the Morty our Rick was around since when he was a baby would have turned out.

Cop Rick is alive for a reason. He killed Cop Morty and turned himself in expecting to be shot off into space, but in the end he’s released by Ricks under evil Morty’s control. Him being alive still is not insignificant, even if just for the narrative and character implications more than plot reasons. 

Cop Rick’s first instinct is to trust. He trusted the Morty in the room with the crib. He trusted Cop Morty to do the right thing. He wants to believe in true justice and the goodness in people, and acts on that belief no matter the outcome for him. 

The real gut punch is he’s not just an outlier. He shows that Ricks do have an infallible sense of justice when it’s not smothered out by narcissism and nihilism. We’ve seen that our Rick, despite being an asshole, will choose to do the right thing- even if it’s the hard thing- at crucial moments: He puts the collar on Morty instead of himself when they’re falling to their deaths in the void, he turns himself in to the Galactic Federation in order to save his family. 

Cop Rick is still alive because he’s the hero our Rick would be if he wasn’t such a jaded asshole. He’s the proof that despite everything, Rick is at his core trying to be good. Maybe that kind of Rick is valuable to Evil Morty, or maybe it was just valuable to us to see this side of Rick so explicitly.

Evil Morty wants control. Evil Morty is living the ideal Morty existence, in control of himself and the universe around him. It’s all he’d want after a life where Rick was always in control, where he could do nothing to stop the machinations of the universe from nearly crushing him every adventure. As we saw really plainly with Copy Morty, when a Morty gets enough knowledge, experience, and freedom, they can’t stand being treated like sidekicks anymore. No wonder the Ricks put them in a school designed not to teach them to be more competent on adventures but instead to keep them helpless and subservient. 

It’s easy enough to follow the same trend in our Morty. He’s been fighting for more control all season– He chooses not to try to rescue Rick from prison. He’s fine with going against Rick’s plan in the Mad Max world. He’s the one who makes them go on the adventure with the Vindicators (and Rick loses his shit when he doesn’t get to be the only one saving the day anymore). And perhaps most telling, Morty’s ideal toxin-free self abandons Rick entirely and creates a situation where his whole job is to manipulate and control other people. 

Evil Morty is what happens when Morty’s struggle for power goes to it’s furthest degree. He wanted so bad to not be the sidekick anymore that he’d do anything, even if it meant becoming the villain.

not sure if these are edited or not, but apparently this creepy-ass Bendy is in the hallway Boris hides in before walking out during the cutscene at the end of Chapter 2. Can any hackers confirm this? :P
