#knowyouraudience????? Like Sarah J Trash did when she and people like you promote hideous books to impressionable teenagers. You're all a joke.

[I try not to feed the trolls but this was a gift.]
Clearly, you’ve never been to my blog. Where I consistently and constructively criticize these books. In case no one ever explained it to you, it’s constructive criticism that gets heard and makes real changes. Not anonymous just-because-I-can hate.

“Like Sarah J Trash did when she and people like you promote hideous books to impressionable teenagers.”

Sorry, but have you ever been on the internet? Or turned on a TV? Or seen a movie? Or gone to Disney World/Land? Or seen a Disney princess movie? Or the cover of a magazine? Or watched a commercial? Or talked through the toy or clothing section of a Target or Walmart? Or sat in a high school classroom? Y/A books are the LEAST of your worries for “impressionable teenagers” of the world. (I could go for days in this topic on this.)

ALSO. DON’T BELITTLE TEENAGERS! Nothing is more annoying than old people, or “older” people, who think that teenagers (or people who are younger than them) are lesser, or somehow not capable of thinking for themselves. Being a teenager is ALL ABOUT learning to think for yourself. Teenagers are not idiots. Sure, at that age, hormones can get the best of you, and peer pressure is a dick—but teenagers are smart, and feeling, and brilliant, and artistic, and thinking about the world and life and what it all means and how we mediate it. And we have teenagers to thank for changing how we think about gender and sexuality. Sure adults helped, but it was these “impressionable teenagers” you’re so worried about who refused to back down and shut up when no one was listening to the problems they (very uniquely) could see.

“You’re all a joke.”
No seriously. You’re the joke because you left this comment anonymously. And your didn’t even #KnowYourAudience. And then you belittled teenagers as if we shouldn’t allow them to be exposed to differing ideas, and decide for themselves, to agree or disagree or fall somewhere in between, or to form their own opinions.

Come on.

how worth it would it be to watch the last undertale vid they did? when they were making the undertale vids I was drifting from the phandom so I didn't watch any of them but does the v last one have enough Cute Moments for the lack of context to be worth it?

i think the last one was probably the most shocked i have ever been watching a video because it is purely flirting the first twenty minutes or so. definitely worth it i rewatch it all the time

What is your process when it comes to making pixel art? How do you choose colors for certain pieces? Have you ever experienced a really bad art block and how did you get through it? I love your pixels so much and they inspire me with my art and projects for games for school! Thanks for all that you do. 🤓

Hey- Thanks so much, and thanks for the questions! Let me answer in parts!

First, The process by which I usually pixel is:

1. Think of a concept, and write out/sketch possible objects related to that concept

2. Start pixelling from the object I feel most excited about

3. Look through my collection of existing pixel art to see if there are some shapes I could recycle, and find a few objects/photos to reference if I think I need help (for example, when I drew my banana, I went out and bought a banana.

4. Draw the line art version. I don’t usually freehand, but I do sometimes use curve line or shape tools, and then zoom in close and work on it one pixel at a time.

5. Fill in the object with the basic blocks of color

6. Play with resizing the object, getting the silhouette just right, making multiple versions and comparing before deciding.

7. Recolor the inside lines, add lighting, shadows, dithering, details..

8. I often make multiple versions again at this point and compare before choosing which colors to make the final version.

9. If at some point I feel the proportions, perspective, or lighting feels wrong, or something feels off in general, I look at my reference objects/images for help.

That’s my basic process!

you know dan doesn't have to speak out on any of these issues, like you're not entitled to his activism or w/e. if he decides to sign a petition that aligns with his beliefs or ramble about politics on liveshows, that's his choice to make. if you agree with his opinions wow everyone wins until you decide to make yourself lose by wanting more. because he does one things you agree with, doesn't mean he owes you to do more things of that kind. you're just setting yourself up for disappointment

interesting how dan howell is a dude w literally heaps of privilege and doesn’t need you or any of us to defend his right to speak or not speak on any given issue. obviously it’s his choice to make and where/when did i ever demand he do/say more? the argument i made and that i’ve always made is that he doesn’t deserve all of the praise he gets for his political ideologies bc he tends to do the minimum or less than the minimum in speaking about them. i totally own up to the notion that it might make him uncomfortable but i think that’s an easy out and an overgeneralization–in some cases, sure, talking about politics and social inequity “kills the mood” or makes people upset or requires complex thought and a lot of time to explain various details of an issue. but in a lot of cases it doesn’t require that (e.g. dan saying “asexuality is valid” or that representation of black people and women in star wars is so important), and don’t you think even that slight discomfort is outweighed by how important it is to recognize these marginalized groups? don’t you think all the ace people saying “dan made me feel visible and valid” means something?  i don’t wish he’d say more on these things bc i think he owes it to me are u actually joking? i wish for that bc he has a platform that he could use to do so much good, and it frustrates me that he (and all white men basically) can get propped up as a feminist and all of these other things despite barely ever talking about or doing work around pertinent issues (whereas if, say, a black woman were to be like ‘i’m a feminist’ people would not care at all or actually attack her for it). 

“everyone wins,” “make yourself lose,” what are you even talking about? this shit is not a GAME with a scoreboard and someone keeping tally of points,, your whole tone about this issue is a bit too cavalier for my liking because societally enforced inequities are literally taking away people’s rights to live safe, healthy, and free lives?  and i’m a bit too busy being disappointed in the actual state of the world to feel lastingly disappointed in dan’s lack of activism lol so u can miss me w your self righteousness and carry on defending him somewhere else byeeee

I was just falling asleep when a question hit me that I had to ask you. Were you in America during prohibition? Did you take advantage of the bootlegging and speakeasies to find your food at that time? Did you ever marinate a corpse in the bathtub gin they were making to give it an extra kick before eating?

In point of fact I worked for a bootlegger, but that is the subject of a Snack yet to come.

On Samurai Jack S5 so far

Anyways, these past three Samurai Jack episodes have been incredible. This is not only faithful to the original show, but a vast improvement and easily one of the best Western animated series there’s ever been.

It keeps that same simplicity, with only dialogue existing when necessary or when it fits the characters and otherwise being quiet and letting the visuals tell the story. It plays with colors just like the original show did, making it very pretty to look at and making interesting combat events. The snow in this latest episode allowing Jack to hide in the wilderness was great, and I think that that part with the deer, while humorous, was also important in showing how the antagonists don’t really know anything about the outside world. I think the only reason Jack was able to best them was because of this, as their lack of knowledge of how to hide themselves in the snow was ultimately their downfall.

I don’t think they’re all dead yet though.

Regardless, this season is intense. Jack’s inner struggles when it comes to the idea of killing (before ultimately accepting himself and his actions) as well as his pain in how long he’s been running is realistic and depressing, but appropriate considering how long he’s watched people suffer and failed at defeating Aku. The combat is really well animated and the fights, particularly in episode 2, made Jack, our hero, look like he might not be able to win. That he’s met his match against these powerful servants of Aku. The fact that Jack, a character who seems incredibly skilled as a samurai and is our main protagonist, has been made to look as if he might die due to these warriors takes incredible skill. I’m happy with these writers and super excited for the future episodes of this season.

My personal favorite lyrics from each DEH song

Does anybody have a map: no specific line but Rachel Bay Jones is a Queen and kills it through out the entire show.

Waving through a window:
DID I EVEN MAKE A SOUND
DID I EVEN MAKE A SOUND
ITS LIKE I NEVER MADE A SOUND
WILL I EVER MAKE A SOUND

For Forever:
Basically all of it from when Evan climbs up and then falls out of the tree to the end of the song but mostly
-I’m on the ground
My arm goes numb
I look around
And I see him come to get me
He comes to get me
And everything’s okay

Sincerely me (aka the only song that doesn’t make me want to scream or sob):
-Kinky!
-Smoking drugs
-RE IN VEN TION
-The only man that I love is my dad

Requiem:
-I gave you the world and you threw it away
-Cause when the villains fall the kingdoms never weep
-that YOU WERE NOT THE MONSTER that I knew
(ZOE AND HER DAD UGGHFHGDJS THOSE HARMONIES)

If I could tell her:
-He thought you looked really pretty er-
You looked pretty cool when you put indigo streaks in your hair
-I love youu I LoVe YoUuuuuu I LOVE YOUUUUU

Disappear:
-Make me more that just an abandoned memory
-No one should flicker out
-All you need is for somebody to find you

You will be found:
(SO GOOD AND INSPIRATIONAL I LOVE IT SM)
-Let that lonely feeling wash away
-There’s a place where you don’t have to feel alone
And every time you call out you’re a little less unknown
-When you’re broken on the ground
You will be found

To break in a glove:
-Or you’re just trying to do what’s best for a kid who’s lost control
(This isn’t that emotional of a song but this single phrase breaks my heart every god damn time)

Only us:
-I don’t need you to sell me on reasons to want you
-Try to quiet the noises in your head
We can’t compete with all that
-If you like me for me and nothing else

Good for you
-well I’m sorry you had it rough and I’m sorry I’m not enough
-(JARED!!!!)and if somebody’s in your way crush them and leave them behind
-(EVANNNN) like a train coming off the track cause the rails and my bones all crack I’ve got to find a way to StOp iT sToP It JUST LET ME OOOOOFFF
(this is probably one of my top 5 moments in the show I love Ben platt so much how does he have so much talent)

Words fail: (I have a love hate relationship with this song because it is hands down my favorite song but it makes me sob uncontrollably 10/10 times. The way that Ben platt can be sobbing and still sing so flawlessly wows me to no end)
-I never had that perfect girl who somehow could see the good parts of me
-nothing can make sense of all these things I’ve done
-cause if I just believe then I don’t have to see what’s really there
-I’d rather pretend something other than these broken parts, pretend I’m something other than this mess that I am (THIS IS THE LINE THAT GETS ME AGGSGHHKK IM AN EMOTIONAL WRECK)
-ALL OF THE WAVING THROUGH A WINDOW REPRISE
-how do I step into the sun

So big So small:
-I knew I’d come up short a million different ways
And I did
And I do
And I will
-your mom isn’t going anywhere your mom is staying right here
(RBJ IS A GODDESS)

Finale:
-today at least you’re you and thats
enough
-we could be alright for forever this way

I live in Phoenix, Arizona and there is a
.0001% chance that I will ever get to see DEH in New York bc I can’t afford to travel across the country, but tbh I would probably drive everyone out of the theater with the amount of crying that would occur if I ever saw the musical on broadway. So I send my love and thanks from a distance. This musical has had such an impact on my life this year. I’ve never connected to something more in my life and sometimes I get so emotional while I’m listening to the sound track that have to take a break for like a week so I can take a rest from crying. Thank you Pasek and Paul. Thank you Steven Levenson. Thank you Ben Platt. Thank you to the rest of the cast for touching my heart so deeply. You have all made me feel so understood and you’re doing so much more for people than you’re probably ever going to be aware of. Thank you all so much.

Last school year, I took Beginner ASL with my home-school partnership. This year, I’m taking Intermediate ASL with the same partnership, but a different teacher. I have almost the same group of classmates as last year. Only this year did I find out that one of these classmates almost beat someone up and used the words “Worst thing ever” when told that they would make a cute couple with someone of the same sex. Or that another one of my classmates doesn’t believe that bisexuality exists, because “Both genders on a regular basis” isn’t something that can actually happen. Or that half the class, including the teacher, thinks it’s okay to be insensitive to the problems of oppressed groups, as long as they don’t do it to the faces of people who belong to those groups. Only now do I realize that they think it’s okay to interrupt a teenage girl expressing concern for the safety of her minority family members to tell her that Trump’s wall is a harmless metaphor. Or that it’s alright to interrupt her again when she tries to express that just because it’s not a legal punishment to kill people for being gay in this country doesn’t mean homophobes don’t take matters into their own hands, to tell her not paint all republicans with the same brush. Right before they turn around and do the same to liberals, in the presence of a liberal, whom they expect not to get upset at this. They say she’s overreacting. That she needs to desensitize herself. They hide behind tables and yell at each other to stop talking when she’s actually giving the person who made that biphobic statement the benefit of the doubt by asking them to clarify, hoping she misunderstood them. They call the teacher from the beginner class “Loose” compared to the teacher for the intermediate class, because she spent the entire class time trying to make it fun by letting us watch videos in class of people signing along to Disney songs, as opposed to now, when we spend over half the class time talking about politics and spend the last twenty minutes frantically trying to make up for lost time. We learned a significant amount of American Sign Language in the beginner class, including please, thank you, and sorry. During review in the intermediate class, halfway through the year, I had to be told not to sign when asked what the signs for please and sorry were, after demonstrating thank you, only to learn that the entire class had watched me before doing it themselves. I’m told, by the teacher, that these intermediate students looked at her like deer in headlights when she told me not to sign please and sorry, because they had forgotten how to do it themselves, and didn’t care enough to try on their own.

I can die happy now! Bulla is the cutest thing ever! I just love daddy Vegeta! My favorite part was that while he was holding her, all he did was look at her and she started laughing. While everyone else had to make a silly face to get her to laugh. She is totally daddy's little princess.

Aw! It really was the cutest episode ever! I admit I was shocked at how they handled the birth moment, even though I already expected them not to show a real birth, obviously, but… Vegeta turning SSJ Blue every time people made Bulla cry was so funny! And that little peek he gives her in the end when he finally holds her was heart melting…

i feel terrible about deluging your ask box with SO MANY questions i am so sorry but i love your legacy verse so much! if you get some time please can you tell us a little bit about any time in their relationship when oliver/felicity were jealous? I know they are very open and good communicators making their marriage work, but did they ever feel jealous even though they knew they had no reason to?

Oliver:

Of course not. Don’t be ridiculous.

Felicity:

My field is pretty male-dominated, and I can’t really talk shop with Oliver. So there have been some times that I’ve gotten a little too excited about chatting with a colleague at a dinner party, and I think I’ve hurt Oliver’s feelings. He never said anything, but I knew.

I can’t really blame him. I’ve felt the same way about some of the women he’s fought with over the years, who understood parts of him that I only know intellectually.

oldnewsisgoodnews replied to your post: people who act like tony stark has somehow been…

^^ I hate when writers refuse to let characters be wrong and/or have even their negative traits get bent into positives (e.g. “got anger issues? Who cares - you always end up being right whenever you go on a tirade, anyway” kinda stuff). Honestly makes characters really unlikeable for me.

#same

like…let your characters make mistakes and do things wrong and have those mistakes be acknowledged because god, fuck, if someone cannot ever do anything wrong…

this is the problem I had with dean in supernatural - even when stuff he did was actively harmful inevitably all his decisions ended up being right and it drove me fuckin crazy.

narrative favoritism is a bitch, man

Where does it hurt?

As the daughter of a nurse, I’ve been told I show some maternal instincts and professional know-how when it comes to people in pain. For instance:

Let’s say you sprained an ankle, like I did just last month. I’ll need to spider my fingers just ever so lightly over your sole, just to make sure you truly can’t move the ankle. I can’t have you fooling me~!

Or say you’ve had the most annoying crick in your neck. I have to make sure you’re able to move your head back and forth, despite the tightness. Allow me to slide my fingers across your neck, back and fo–oh, is it cold in here? You just got the cutest little goosebumps across your skin and all the way down your arms! And…oh, is something funny? You just broke into the sweetest giggles!

As you can see, you can trust me! I’m the descendant of a professional! Now, shall we get started with your physical?

"We did something wrong, and now we're paying for it. But I'm getting a little sick and tired of people acting like Mike Ross screwed them over. He gave his heart and soul to every client he ever had, and if those cases were reopened, they would end up exactly in the same place." — Harvey Specter, No.1 fan of Mike Ross and his big heart.

HEY FAM

Literally nobody stans Mike as hard as Harvey stans Mike.

He’s one of those people who would get deeply and personally offended if you didn’t like Mike, on Mike’s behalf. Mike wouldn’t care, couldn’t care any less, but Harvey would fuck a boy up if they were to say they didn’t like Mike.

It reminds me of, and this is gonna fall on deaf ears I guess because different types of fandom, but there was this ship that I love called Stendan (from a soap opera called Hollyoaks, great storyline, a little taboo for some people but it was amazing, they’re my true otp forever & always) and Brendan was like the Harvey, in the sense that he was really protective over his boyfriend.

They’re nothing alike other than how strongly they love their other halves, lmao.

And one night this guy who is trying to seduce Brendan for other reasons than wanting to actually sleep with him, he says: “No offense, but… I really don’t understand what you see in him (meaning Brendan’s boyfriend).” and Brendan says, “You’re talking about Steven (the boyfriend),” and the guy says, “You can do so much better.”

Or something to that effect.

Anyway!

Brendan takes it in and within an instant, this kid is being pinned to the table in a threatening manner and Brendan says the best thing:

“Now why is it, when someone says no offense they follow it with something really offensive? Why is that? You make one more crack about Steven and I will kill you, do you understand?”

And I can so easily relay that to Harvey/Mike. Because Harvey so WOULD, in a position where someone was personally attacking Mike, he’d shut that shit down, no exceptions, and has. Not to mention he threatened to kill Frank Gallo (and I wholeheartedly believe he would’ve, had Mike been seriously hurt in prison.)

He is Mike Ross’s biggest fan and it kills me every goddamn time.

au where yuri is colorblind and viktor buys him a set of glasses that will make him see colors again, and when yuri puts them on all he does is stare at viktor, tearing up
viktor eventually asks why he’s not looking around, and yuri simply tells him that
“your eyes are the prettiest color i have ever seen.”

One day, many years from now when you realize what you’ve lost - you will search for me. 
Perhaps you’ll email me but there’ll be no reply; or maybe you’ll call my number but it will have changed…. And when you give up trying to find me physically, you’ll search for me emotionally. 
You’ll try to find someone else who will love you like I did or make you laugh as much as I used to … but you’ll soon realize there’s nobody else quite like me… 
I was unique… I was the one for you - and you lost me. 
And you will try so desperately to find traces of me in every soul you meet for the rest of your days ….but you will never ever find me.
