Once when I went to anime con I was dressed as Levi Ackerman and my friend bought a Levi body pillow but she already had stuff so she couldn’t carry it so I was just walking around the con with this body pillow of myself all day.
Marvel: we can’t make one of our film or show leads Asian. That would be…. against the original source material. That’s also why we can’t make them LGBTQ+.
Power Rangers (2017): hey what’s up. 4/5 of our leads are POC. One is autistic and one is confirmed LGBTQ+. We have the first Asian superhero in a big-budget film, the first autistic superhero in a big/budget film, and the first LGBTQ+ superhero in a big-budget film. None of this was really in the original source material, but representation matters and we specifically casted them with the intention of making a diverse film.
Nábrók- The name given to a style of Icelandic pants found by historians, believed to be from the 17th century. The name literally translates to “Necropants” for a very creepy reason; They are made from human skin. Sorcerers and witches would wear the trousers all day and night under their clothes as a sort of underwear in order to bring them wealth.
Politely being asked by your sorcerer friend to be used in a pair of Necropants after your death was a great honour in 17th century Iceland, but making an authentic pair of Nábrók was a difficult practice for the witch. They would only bring prosperity if the maker/wearer stole a coin from a widow and placed it in the scrotum of the garment. When the wearer died, if they did not pass the Nábrók down to their children they would be infected with lice as soon as they passed away, but if the trousers were passed on, they could bring wealth to future wearers. Above is the only surviving pair of Necropants, and is on display at the Museum of Icelandic Sorcery & Witchcraft in Holmavik, Iceland.
today was a Rough day at work but it was considerably brightened by this commission of Throw Away the Key by a long-time friend @littlestpersimmon ! I’ve always adored their art (specifically in their comic @eeriecrests ) and this piece is no exception! Thank you sooooooooooooo much Bel! <3 <3 <3
CHRIS: I dreamt that I was at my old elementary school. And we were eating lunch outside, me and Caroline, who was my girlfriend in fourth grade and then you were walking past and I was like “Wow, damn”! And then I walked up to you and I was like “Hey, do you wanna date me?” in front of Caroline.
EVA: What did I say?
CHRIS: You said yes, of course.
EVA: Yes? Of course? Okay?
CHRIS: And that’s supposed to mean…?
EVA: That we’re never going to be together.
CHRIS: Why not?
EVA: Why? Because..
EVA: Because you.. are..
CHRIS: I am? What am I?
EVA: A cheating fuckboy.
EVA: Hi, Vilde.
VILDE: Hi, what are you doing?
EVA: Nothing in particular…
VILDE: Listen, I wanted to do something nice for Sana at that Eid-celebration, to show her how much we love her.
EVA: Yes! We can do that!
VILDE: So I’ve read a bit about Eid and it’s common to give gifts, but it’s often just to kids and money and stuff, and it’d be a bit weird to give her money. I wanna give her something really special, so do you have any ideas?
EVA: Uhm… No, I don’t know, but we should probably ask someone for some advice, maybe someone who knows more than us,
VILDE: Yeah, I agree. We’ll ask a Muslim.
EVA: Hey, but listen, maybe I’ll call you up a bit later or something?
EVA: Okayyy, bye! Where were we?
CHRIS: We were talking about if we’re going to get together.
EVA: I don’t think so..
CHRIS: You don’t? Because I think you may want to.
CHRIS: You sure?
EVA: Yes, I’m sure.
CHRIS: Totally sure?
EVA: Yes, very.
MOM: Oh, I’m sorry! Uhm..
EVA: Uhm.. I have company.
EVA: Uhm.. This is..
CHRIS: Hey! Chris.
MOM: Hi. Chris.
CHRIS: Is your name also Chris?
MOM: Yeah, no, my name is Anne Marit.
CHRIS: Oh, okay. That makes sense.
MOM: I’m sorry for just.. I didn’t know Eva had a boyfriend.
EVA: We’re not together.
MOM: Yes, but that’s.. You’ll figure that out.. Okay.
EVA: Oh my God.
CHRIS: Oh, well.
EVA: Why did you stand up?
CHRIS: I had to introduce myself. I was raised well. You have to say hi to people.
EVA: You could’ve introduce yourself another time!
