I look at him and think–
we were young and I was so in love with you.
 
I imagine this as a conversation we will have
two decades from now, in some
clandestine grocery store
three states over.
 
I’ll say,
do you remember the days when we wanted to kiss
just a little bit more than we wanted to die?
 
He’ll smile. He’ll say,
do you remember the days when we wanted to die
just a little bit more than we wanted
to be together?

As a little early birthday present to myself, I commissioned @orokay to do an illustration of Ashanna from her Constellations AU. WHAT A CUTE PIECE to contrast the horrible things I am going to be putting her through in the next few chapters 😀

A big thanks to the artist; quick work and very communicative during the process, will definitely commission from again <3

Sing roleswap au! These drawing are not to proper scale for character heights/sizes. A behemoth of a project that i put lots of love into! I thought it might be fun to switch around the roles for that characters, and hey- I was right! Full character rundowns beneath the cut since it’s a lot

Offensive Cosplays

Hey guys, so you guys know I’m not usually one to post drama on here, but something came to my attention recently that isn’t a particularly new concept to this fandom - offensive cosplays. And what I mean is blatantly offensive cosplays, such as dressing as a Nazi officer.  

The main point of this is I want everyone to know that this is not okay. In the slightest. It is grossly offensive and actually illegal to dress this way in many countries because of the connotations it holds. 

Millions of people died under the Nazi regime and the things that they did to other people is inhumane, gross, and disturbing on all accounts. No one should have ever been made to live through that. And cosplaying a Nazi uniform which represents all of those horrific events is absolutely unacceptable. Just don’t do it. If you really need reasons not to do it, I highly recommend watching Alfred Hitchcock’s Night Will Fall, it’s in my opinion a very well done documentary with footage from within concentration camps and while disturbing to watch, it puts gravity to the situation and faces to the millions of people who were brutally killed within these camps.

The reason this came to my attention recently (although I have seen countless others) is recently a Germany cosplayer decided to cosplay an SS army uniform for a convention and continued to post this onto social media. This cosplayer was then told by several people that her cosplay was very offensive. Instead of taking down these pictures or taking responsibility for their actions, they proceeded to claim they were being cyberbullied and handled the situation in a very terrible way which left others feeling resentment towards them. 

If someone does tell you that you are being offensive to them, just stop what you are doing and take a step back and really take into account what you are doing. If you’re going to straight up cosplay a Nazi, though, then just don’t. Don’t do it. You can be historical without donning a Nazi uniform, there are many other options out there.
