things can’t make you look like a sexuality. it’s very tempting to make easy jokes about “Dan looks like a lesbian”, “Dan’s pastel video is gay” i mean obviously correlations between behaviour and stereotypes do exist but when things are kind of you feeding into heteronormativism and the harmfulness of everybody’s living inside a patriarchy and the bullying that exists within the male-system with things threatening their masculinity - that’s just a bad thing and stereotyping sexuality and behaviour and gender isn’t a good thing - so you can say “that goat looks like a lesbian” or “the flowers, that’s a bit gay” and it’s not necessarily the most offensive thing but on a level it is slightly bad because you are reinforcing those things you know so it’s funny because next time you’ll be like “oh i totally look like a lesbian” it’s like that might seem like that but there’s nothing wrong with a lesbian happening to look like whatever “masculine” is.
what is “girly”? what is “looking feminine”? you go to nature, you got a female lion - they’re all meaty as heck. tell you what, lionesses at the zoo - they’re all thicc, look at those thighs. male lions are skinny as heck sat in the corner. what is “feminine”? who’s to say that a girl has to wear pink and like flowers? gender roles make no sense at all. honestly it’s just one of those things that make no sense - like you can say “men are stronger, therefore they should be the hunters” but in our modern society that means nothing. that’s like grounded in some kind of biology - but wearing pink, liking flowers and not liking flowers - that makes no sense. there’s like literally no background for it. there’s a difference between things that have some kind of evolutionary biological basis that we can say while now in our modern society that’s a pointless issue that we shouldn’t let define us.
Dan’s rant on the flower-crown-criticism | Dan’s Live Chat 14/2/2017
1/3 of the first chapter complete! 52 pages total. That’s 10 pages of the script. Of 40. 😨
Things you must know:
- Lady Lioness is a comic-prose project, Queeniechan’s stories style. But I wanted the first chapter to be more comic than prose, in order to introduce better Pallas’ situation and the city. The first chapter has prose, but not very much.
- The first chapter is finally cut in three parts: the introduction, the sewing factory and Bernhardt. The intro is almost full comic, except for a letter. The next parts have more prose.
- I came to the conclusion that this chapter is going to be almost the size of a manga volume. The intro is 52 pages, and the others, even with the prose parts, will be similar. So it will have around 150 pages. Less I hope. And it’s only the first chapter! The Lady Lioness doesn’t even appear yet! 😨 And the story was made to be TWELVE CHAPTERS. Unless I do something, I will be a mother and my child will be celebrating their first communion when I finish!
- So, my initial plan was to publish the chapter here and on other sites once it was finished but, at this rate, the readers will get bored. So I’ve been thinking of ways of showing it. It’s going to be hard for various reasons;
-I’m doing this for fun in my free time. I don’t have much of it, so I can’t work on it as much as I want. Once Planet Apolion is over I will have almost a year to work on it exclusively but, I don’t live on this and it won’t be my priority. My only priority is not to dissapoint my readers, but I got a life in the middle…
- The story is going to be long and I don’t know if I will be able to keep an interest.
- My working pace is slow. I haven’t planned a super detailed style but, anyway, I take a lot of time for simple drawings.
My conclusion is, that I probably will set a regular or semi-regular publication rate of a page every one or two weeks. I’m thinking also of giving the first 5 pages of every chapter to continue later with the page-a-week rate. I don’t know if I will be able to keep this. I will probably end up taking it easy. I must remind to myself that this isn’t a job, unless I get a future promise of publishing or something like that with a deadline or so. Any suggestions?
Thank you all who support me and Lady Lioness. Your support and my own strong will of doing it are my main fuel! I want to do this. I want to finish it. Thank you all. And don’t worry, I will make more art apart from this, I promise 😄
Plot: Everybody (except Ruby) is shit faced. The night is wild and everybody is lucky Dia is too busy to kill them all.
KananMari, RubyMaru, ChikaRiko, YouYoshiko, Dia x Mystery Girl
SFW: with strong language, adult content [alcohol, sexual innuendos, hot kisses, and a lot of touching] sex happens but it’s not written.
Summary: Ruby cannot believe what’s happening.
A/N: Still split in everyone’s POVs with some taking longer than others because quite frankly, they were too funny to cut short. Remember this is a college AU and everybody is aged up!
Dia spots a
candidate. It’s hard to see well in the club and her beer goggles don’t exactly
help, but she doesn’t need much help distinguishing breasts—her only real criteria.
smoothly, gracefully, working very hard at coordinating her legs and feet. It’s
paying off, thank god. She doesn’t trip over herself as she gets close enough
that the girl can hear her shy intonations.
“Hi.” Dia can
feel her stomach creeping into her throat. The girl glances at Dia with pale
blue eyes set afire by the club’s strobe lights. Her features are on point with
Dia’s preferences and Dia is quick to admire her long blonde hair, like doll’s
hair, left free to fall past her shoulders. She’s tall, but not imposingly so,
and Dia guesses she’s probably a few years older than she is. “Are you having a
good time?” Dia hopes she isn’t slurring or at the very least that this is
actually going as smoothly as she thinks it is.
In honor of tamorapierce‘s AMA, I decided to finally draw Alanna. Influenced quite a bit by minuiko‘s fantastic work, in terms of costume, but Alanna’s always had a distinct face in my mind. The stubborn Trebond chin, that little upturned nose.
