Hexer | Pilot

Here it is, finally, Hexer’s Pilot! 

Trigger Warnings: Blood and Strong Language 

If you like what you see here then please think about contributing to our Kickstarter HERE 

Failing that, if you liked it, please share it where you can. That would be such a huge help to us!

We would really appreciate it. There’s so much more to come and we have the entire first series planned and ready to go. 

Also, to anyone who doesn’t feel like they’re represented in media we really hope you saw at least a little something here that made you say “Hey, that’s me!” because if so then that’s our job done. We promise that there is even more inclusion to come and we’re really excited to try and make it for you. 

Perhaps give this post a like, or like the pilot itself and if you can’t watch now then maybe add it to your Watch Later on YouTube :) 

We hope this was worth the wait, guys! 

Thank you so much for watching x

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

There is nothing by itself bad with stylizing female characters so they look bigger or are hairy, if anything I want more female characters who are big and hairy.
The ISSUE is when women of colour are portrayed as borderline animalistic big creatures and white girls are more human and allowed to be petite and pretty.
You can do diversity without dehumanizing WoC and butchness or implying femeninity can only be white.

The reason that Black History Month is celebrated in Canada is thanks to Jean Augustine, the first black woman to be elected to Canada’s Parliament.

She was first elected in 1993, and served as a Liberal MP until 2006.
