times have changed

Some doodles I did on the side yesterday night ( @blesstale drew Zunde that there ) including Dreby taking his first steps. I saw this kid screaming “NOOOO!” at some meat in a grocery store before running to his mom, so there we go ✌️

“I want to go home.”

A Spirited Away AU @sumyna (check out her TeruMob one!) and i have been thinking about… I’ve been calling it “The Lost Brothers and the Twin Dragons”. More about it + bigger picture of the brothers under the cut!

I was going to make something really nice for your birthday, @markiplier, and I spent hours working- working on a drawing of your face, and then one of Chica, and then I tried one in an Animal Crossing style for some reason, and then at one point I think I had a Darkiplier phase- but everything just looked horrible.

Then I panicked and drew a pigeon. 

Sorry Mark.

I hope you like the pigeon anyway. His name is Henry. 

Reclaim The Day #2

What is it: A day for witches of color to post selfies, scenery (include the city, not all witchcraft takes place in the woods), rituals, pages from your grimoire, altars and other aspects of your witchcraft on tumblr. Anything witchy you do, post it on tumblr on this day! It’s a day for representation in the witch community, solely reserved for witches of color!

This is the second Reclaim the Day we’ll be having so I’m excited to see what you all have in store!

When is it: July 13th, 2017 (about a month away)

What tag should we use: use #pocrtd

Why is this is a day:  There’s no denying that the tumblr witch community is white washed.

Because of this, we suddenly have a standard idea of what a witch a must be, and it pushes out room for witches of color.

This makes it very hard and discouraging to be a witch of color on tumblr. It’s isolating when the entire community is full of witches who are white. It’s disheartening when you can’t find your own.

That’s why I created Reclaim the Day, in order to bring representation to the POC witch community!  To give us the exposure and attention we need, and to help us find!

Please do me a favor and reblog this, tell others about it! let’s let this one get bigger than the first one!

??? wtf??? exo is exo. period.

How else can I explain it? First step: DO NOT ASSUME.

If we don’t assume, then there’d be zero problem.

But then some people love to assume EXO is gay, when you assume EXO is gay you are NOT supporting equality you are only supporting THE GAY PART. How is supporting only the gay part any better than supporting only the straight part??

That’s why first step is DO NOT ASSUME.

If you want to assume EXO is gay then make sure you are also assuming EXO is straight. Picking only the gay part to focus on is NOT supportive of equality. That literally just shows that you are biased as hell and only pushing what’s on your agenda.

Let me be clear, if you were being fair, then you would have assumed EXO is gay, EXO is straight, EXO is asexual, EXO is bi, EXO is pan, EXO is rainbow, EXO is everything. Okay? If you only assume EXO is gay and not everything else THEN YOU ARE BIASED for your own delusion.

That’s why the first step is DO NOT ASSUME.

When you assume something, you are inevitably not being fair to the parts that you don’t assume. Assumptions are always subjective so just don’t make any.

And before you claim people assume EXO is straight all the time, um no, we don’t. We don’t make a billion posts screaming “EXO is straight” every other day. All the sexual orientation posts are literally filled with “EXO is sooo gay because blah blah blah.” If you want to continue to assume, then don’t get triggered when people call you out for being delusional.

There is nothing wrong with being gay but when you ASSUME someone is gay when they NEVER said they are, you are not acting fair.

Write a fanfic if you want to assume EXO is gay or straight or whatever the hell you want them to be.

Most of us don’t even care what EXO’s sexual orientation is, most of us will continue to support them no matter what. We just want to see GIF’s or cute photos so stop making all these “EXO is gay/straight/whatever the hell they are” posts every time a member does something gay or says something gay and clog up the tags. Like we get it, that sounds gay, so what??? They will tell us if they are gay but before they tell us, stop clogging up all the tags with assumptions.

EXO literally told you to call them baby, call them monster, they didn’t ask to be called gay or bi or straight. If you are a true fan, then stop assuming EXO’s identity for them.

your regular reminder: Chalo and Priya are absolutely stunning.

Prompt from kimberlyhartz: could you write kim being the track star (or cheerleader for canon’s sake) and trini being the girl on the bleachers??

Also posted on AO3

Trini dropped her bag next to her on the bleachers and sat down with a huff, staring out at the students stretching their muscles before they’d begin warmups. Her eyes automatically sought out Kim, who could be spotted from a mile away in her bright pink tank top. Trini shook her head as she remembered the conversation they’d had about the Pink Ranger joining the track team.

Well, it was actually less of a conversation and more of Kim just telling them all that she was doing it no matter what.

“What about your powers?” Trini said. “You can run circles around those track geeks and not even break a sweat.”

“I’ll hold back,” Kim replied. After a moment of uneasy silence from her friends, she’d said, “Look, I’m not doing cheerleading anymore and my parents are getting on my case about extracurricular activities and how good they look on college applications and all that shit. They’re basically forcing me to do this and track’s the only team that’ll take me after that whole…naked picture fiasco.”

“I still don’t like it,” Jason chimed in. “You could easily slip up.”

“Well how about Trini comes to practice with me.”

“Excuse me?” Trini crossed her arms.

“That way one of you can keep an eye out and let me know if I need to tone it down or not.”

“Why am I the one that gets volunteered for this?” Trini asked.

“Because I’d much rather have you there watching me than any of the boys. No offense, guys.”

“How do you know I don’t have other things to do after school?”

Kim gave her a look. “Trin…you never do anything after school.” Deciding to change her tactics, Kim changed her expression into a pout. “C’mon, it’ll just be for, like, the next few months. When the year ends I’ll just tell my parents I tried, but didn’t like it. That should get ‘em off my back.”

“I guess there’s really no harm in it,” Zack said. “As long as it’s only for a couple months.”

Trini shook her head and sighed. “Fine. I’ll go to your stupid practices and make sure you don’t fuck up.”

Kim grinned and pulled her in for a bone-crushing hug as Trini tried to ignore the fluttering feeling that stirred in her stomach.

So here she was, five minutes into “Kimberly Watch” and was already bored out of her mind. Trini stared at Kim as the other girl bent over and touched her toes, back facing her. Inadvertently, Trini’s eyes strayed just below the waist and locked onto Kim’s ass, clad in tiny running shorts that also made her legs look like they went on for miles.

Initially, she didn’t notice that Kim had straightened up and turned her head to look over at her sitting on the bleachers. When she finally realized that Kim was looking at her, Trini’s eyes snapped to her face and took in the smirk that was firmly fixed there.

Shit, she totally caught her staring at her ass. But…did Kim…like it? Because her reaction certainly seemed that way. But then again, maybe Kim was just one of those girls who knew she was hot and liked the attention. But then again Trini knew for a fact that she wasn’t one of those girls. Sure, Kim knew she was good-looking, but she hated it when people stared at her like she was a piece of meat. She was more than just looks, you know.

So why did she seem to like catching Trini staring at her?

Fuck, Kim confused her. Sometimes it felt like Kim was flirting with her. She’d constantly be touching her: an arm thrown around Trini’s shoulders, her head laying in Trini’s lap. For fuck’s sake, they would even cuddle whenever they’d sneak into one another’s rooms in the middle of the night. Did that mean Kim actually might…like her or was she just blowing everything out of proportion? It didn’t help that Trini had the biggest crush on her, but wasn’t Kim straight?

Trini watched as Kim laughed at something some tall, dark, and handsome guy said. She laid down on the ground and he grabbed her foot, helping her to raise it up and stretch it out. Trini felt the burning sting of jealousy and insecurity flare up inside her. Crestfallen, she leaned back against the bench above her and popped in her earbuds, turning the music up as loud as her eardrums could handle.

Yeah, she had to be wrong. There was no way a girl like Kimberly Hart would ever go for a girl like Trini Gomez.

So I tweeted this out during the charity stream, and for some unholy reason, I feel the need to show MORE people my terrible art. 

I also posted it on my RedBubble, because I post everything on RedBubble, because I’m silly. 

Basically, I know I’m bad, but I’m trying to be brave and accept that failure just means growth. So I’m trying to share things, even things I think I did poorly on, so I can grow and learn. That’s why I’ve been posting more art in general lately.

Anyway, rambling aside, I really appreciate Darkiplier.

@markiplier you said that you are excited to fail, because it means you learn. I’m doing my best to have that attitude. So take this.
