yakkity

It sure is interesting how fandom is more than willing to simplify, vilify, and demonize complex, flawed female characters while giving their flawed male counterparts a free ride.

It’s cool if you personally are uncomfortable with a character’s actions, you don’t have to like them, but c’mon now, don’t act surprised when someone wants to explore female villains and antagonists in the same way that they do male villains and antagonists.

I don’t got much today pff but I did draw one of my new goatlings named “Yakkity” she is a nomadic traveller whos been traveling since she was a young girl.

She carrys a very heavy back pack and basically can be like a mary poppins with how many odd useful things are in it.

Yakkity also has a knack for making animal companions, the one she is closest too is yip yip a little sparrow. It hides in her hair and under her hood a lot.

Sadly she has a language barrier as she doesn’t speak english (i’m thinking she’ll speak mongolian since yaks are from the area) and very few understand her in her travels, so shes often becomes mime like to communicate.

Yakkity Yak is an Australian–Canadian animated television series created by Mark Gravas that ran on Teletoon in Canada and on Nickelodeon in Australia from November 9, 2002 to December 12, 2003

Something I think about a lot is the nature of Giriko’s enchanting skill. Like, it’s well-established that golems are supposed to be crafted from clay, and are used for protective purposes, but chainsaw over here has been corrupting that for the past 800 years. Giriko’s a parasitic immortal who knows how to pilot other peoples’ meatsacks and has been shown to puppet empty corpses as well. That’s raising and controlling the dead.

What I’m saying is, Giriko is essentially the world’s laziest necromancer.

Raise an army?? Graduate to lichdom?? Nah, just gonna hang out incognito for eight centuries to make sure ol’ spidertits stays safe while getting drunk.

the worst part about transitioning from hamsteak to a different Main Fandom is that suddenly this entire vocabulary that you’ve learned to use is just gone

when people talk about shipping it’s nearly always redrom but i want to bring up pale and black ships so much. redrom is great but moirails!! kismesises!! quadrant flipping!! i guess ashen can come to the party as well but i never got a good example of it tbh

i admit i’m part of the problem b/c my current otp is redrom but the vast majority of my fandom ships are black and pale and like. I don’t actually know how to really portray that without being misunderstood?? how do i fix this problem. saying “shipping platonically” or “good rivalry” doesn’t have the same connotation, you know? 

what i’m saying is: makeouts are great but so are pacific rim head touches and hilariously impotent rival battles

Part of my nursing school requirement involves a CNA class and certification, which is fair enough! It teaches important care skills, etc. I just recently started my summer classes, and uh.

My teacher refuses to accept that there are 12 inches in a foot.

She was showing us how to take a patient’s height and weight measurements, and explained that height could quickly and easily be calculated as long as you remember that 60 inches is five feet. She chose the single dude to use an example, and he came out to 73 inches.

“So, that makes him 6′3.”

“No, it doesn’t.”

“What? That doesn’t make any sense.”

“You just said that 60 inches is five feet. He’s 73 inches tall, which means that he would be 6′1.”

“That can’t be right.”

“There are twelve inches in a foot.”

“No, no. That’s not right. There has to be something wrong with the measurement stick.”
