you should reblog with the answer

The boys are here to stay

Good news: I am not deleting the blog!

Bad news: Classes are getting more serious so I won’t be able to answer questions or draw as much.

This doesn’t mean “stop sending questions or requests”, in fact, it means send more of those.

I might also make some Michael and Jeremy icons and give them away in a contest. Comment or reblog if you think I should!

Let’s raise awareness for these boys and my contest!

anonymous asked:

If the art was that good people would see it anyway. Without the artist needing to reblog it 100 times

I see you’re stemming from liv’s @larvesta own answer about this and I’m not gonna lie, I’m really hesitant about saying anything on the matter bc i don’t do this kind of thing but I realise people actually think this way so here’s a proper answer. 

It doesn’t work that way. I should know, I should really know. People here on Tumblr get lucky often and you wouldn’t think that, especially if you don’t create content yourself. Things just don’t become popular all of a sudden, most of the time it needs to get reblogged by the right person and add the balance between having good content yourself as well as an ongoing status as a creator. Not to mention how you go about treating your followers, your personality and how you act here. And you’ll tell me; “But people with good art have so many notes! It must be because they’re good! See, you don’t need to reblog it so many times!”

I hope you know what it feels like to be an artist here because I do. I especially do. I have talked, reblogged, supported, and have met so many, too many artists here, some insanely obscure. Some whose work looks like it took so many hours and has very little over 50 notes; my work included. And I can tell you now that I can personally handpick and tell you that some of the work I’m most proud of and have took many hours on are not over 200 notes. I’m not saying I’m frustrated by that, because some of us are reassured in our skill but let me tell you that every time I think of a fellow artist out there who releases amazing art and earns very little notes who looks at their note count and wonders if they are good enough, my heart breaks. And there’s young artists who are still getting by, who are not as good yet but took the same amount of effort and time, they deserve to be cheered on. 

Because people think artists here are machines, capable of creating content without regards to who actually appreciates it. No one is like that, artists are fragile just like everyone else and people really forget that. They really do. 

People don’t just see the art out of nowhere, do you understand the huge amount in this platform? There’s millions of work everywhere, you need to be supported to be seen, you need to withstand the thousands of others around you and you might have to create something that’s away from the norm to stand out, you might have to take hours of your time. You don’t know unless you really indulge yourself this platform, you don’t know unless you yourself do work for more than four hours, no breaks and absolutely tired, and look at your note count to see a disheartening number. You have no idea, you really don’t.

And don’t guilt them, please. I could reblog my art so many times, but sometimes the thougt of ‘maybe it gets annoying’ always bears in my mind, artists are made to feel like it’s okay that they’re not being appreciated. I’m proud of those who reblog their art because they know they deserve better, and guess what? They do.  

There’s a difference between good content and popular content, popular content aimed towards a specific audience that you know will like and reblog that. Good content is a dangerous hit and miss. I really appreciate people who do art for things that are not popular, because sometimes they really do have to rely solely on their skills. I say it’s a dangerous hit and miss because you know it might not have that specific audience, but you still take the effort and time into it anyway. Imagine that; knowing something is popular but going for the alternative anyway; taking time, taking effort, putting your all into it. That’s absolutely insane, man. Imagine knowing you can put that time and effort into something popular that might attract way more notes, but still doing something else for the sake of that something else. 

Also there’s the matter of timezones, in which there’s a worldly concept that everyone is in different times and not everyone is here at the same time to see the same content. I don’t want to explain this; please at least understand the concept of time. 

Artists reblog their work because they want others to see it, to appreciate it. Because sometimes it’s the only way others can. Reblogging their own work is an artist’s way of supporting themselves and you think I’m going to let you let them think that that’s a bad thing? That they’re not allowed to do that? Go home, buddy. 

I don’t have anything against anyone, I just wrote this realising that people actually think this is actually how it works and even then, I don’t have anything against you, maybe you’re just misinformed, some just don’t know enough about this to really understand. 

So here it is buds: support artists supporting themselves. It’s as simple as that. 

Reblog if you have ADHD/ADD and…

• You can’t do simple math problems, even though you are thinking of the answer in your head.
Ex: I always can’t remember 7 • 3 or 4(It equals 21 & 28)

• You go to the search bar, but can’t remember what you were going to search
Ex: I can’t think of an example, but you should know what I mean.

• You are going to go get something, but can’t remember what.
Ex: When I was a little kid, I would go get some new thing I had to show my grandpa, and stand in my room for 5 minutes remembering what I was going to show him.

• You can’t focus on someone’s eyes because everything around you is too distracting/noisy.
Ex: I try to make eye contact with my girlfriend, but get distracted by all the things.

• You’re having a conversation, and keep changing the subject, then go back to your first subject 5 subjects later.
Ex: I try to explain Pokémon or some other game to someone, and get off topic talking about how complicated the battle system is.

• You read a book and 5 pages later have no clue what you’re reading, then go back to the earlier pages, and find new information.
Ex: Every time I read a book again, the story seems new to me.

• You’re reminded of useless trivia by everything.
Ex: Someone: Ooh look at that NES
Me: did you know that the Sega Genesis competed with the NES for two years before the SNES came out?

• You get distracted by every, little, unimportant detail, but never what you actually need to pay attention to.
Ex: There’s a tear right there, and there’s a different shade of green over there.

Some of these things may be normal, and I just don’t ask others about it.

A list of sexist things I was told playing Overwatch in the day time on 11/14/17
  • “there’s a reason the xbox doesn’t come in pink - because it’s FOR men”
  • “i looked up your facebook from your gamertag and at least you’re not ugly” (is it not weird that he fucking stalked me)
  • “i’m not your daddy, i’ll fucking slap you. girls who mouth off don’t deserve to have mouths”
  • “i’m sorry, did you see any women on the OW teams? No? OH THAT’S RIGHT. They were focusing on their slutty cosplays and making sandwiches in the kitchen WHERE YOU SHOULD BE”
  • “Rachael? your names rachael? are you a girl? fucking answer me! ARE YOU ARE GIRL? WHY ARE YOU PLAYING XBOX?”

The worst part is that it was broad daylight and also that this was 3 different people, 3 different teams, all in a row. :^)

feel free to post any other sexist things you’ve heard while playing (specifically the xbox) videogames - and if you could also add what platform you play on that’d be cool too.

she-shakes-the-pine  asked:

Do you know the real story of Pocahontas ? If you did I'm sure you would want to remove her from every post including her, its ironic and contradicting that you are advocating for women of colour while also promoting colonialism

Okay this message is super patronizing but I’m going to answer it openly and honestly.

Yes, of course we all know the real story of Pocahontas. We’ve talked about it numerous times, reblogged critiques of it and had open discussions with followers about it. Our focus on this blog is looking critically at Disney films while also celebrating the film characters for what they are and the effect they have on people. We’ve also openly stated that the film should remain a one time mistake—that Disney should learn from it, and that they should leave it in the past and not attempt to drag it into the future with the this trend of live action remakes and shows like Once Upon a Time

THAT BEING SAID, I was an NDN girl growing up in the 90s with literally no access to natives in pop culture beyond the toxic portrayals in old westerns and whatever my dad could find in bookstores and video rental stores in a time before the Internet made it possible to find things instantaneously. When Pocahontas came out, I freaked out. I remember my dad freaking out. He took me opening weekend to the theater to see it. He was so excited that, at last, there was a mainstream native american character he could show me. And she was strong and she was brave and she was beautiful and she was resilient. And she meant a lot to me growing up.

But I was also lucky enough to not only have a father that knew his history, but to be surrounded by family on our reservation who were hell bent on my cousins and I learning, from a young age, Indigenous history. And it’s something I continued into my education. I took 6 semesters of Indigenous History courses so I’d say I have a better grasp than most people on the subject.

But that’s why this blog exists–to educate and inform, to highlight both the good and the bad effects of not just Pocahontas, but all the characters of color in Disney’s history. And frankly, if we banished every character because of the way their white creators mishandled them–either through ignorance or indifference–we’d be left with nothing and nobody to talk about.

Russell Means, one of the most prolific and important indigenous civil rights revolutionaries, was an actor in the film. He thought that the overall effects of the film outweighed the historical inaccuracies, as long as those inaccuracies were talked about. He said,

It’s so revolutionary, it shocked me when they showed it to me. The first thing that shocked me was the truth. The Eurocentric males are admitting why they came here–to kill Indians and to rob and pillage. That’s never been done before. This is also the first time, other than on “Northern Exposure,” that a human face has been put on an Indian female. Here’s this young woman who’s wiser than her father or any man in the village, and she causes peace to reign. It’s beautiful. (x)

So do I have conflicting feelings about the film? Absolutely I do. As I’m sure everyone reading this blog does. And we’re never gonna shove the movie down anybody’s throats or yell at them for not watching it. People are allowed to have their own feelings about stuff. And as long as people acknowledge the truth behind the movie and not try to divorce it from the real history, I don’t have a problem with someone loving the movie.

This blog focuses primarily on how pop culture and media representation affects children, for better or worse. And the fact remains that not only is this movie already a step above most Hollywood depictions of Natives in that the Natives are actually played by Natives, but it remains the ONLY source of indigenous representation that is accessible to children. Bluntly, right now, it’s all we’ve got. If you don’t think that has some significance, that’s your opinion. 

So we’ll continue to showcase Pocahontas on this blog because to not to would be to erase her from Disney’s legacy–both the good parts and the bad.


anonymous asked:

bless you, and bless your tags. hamilton was a fuck up, but his letters to eliza are filled with so much love and concern that i am confused that people say he was only in it for the status

Like, was her family a plus?  Yes.  Did she fit his type (pretty and rich)?  Yes.  That doesn’t mean he didn’t love her!  It’s so, so obvious that he did. 

And it’s not like Eliza fell for a foot soldier, you know?  He was the personal secretary to George freaking Washington!  He was a big deal.  Trust me that the girl wasn’t going to Jockey Hollow to find a husband.  She had standards, too, we just accept her standards and don’t accept his for some, often uncomfortable, reason.  Like, notice that people don’t give her shit for marrying “down,” but his motives get questioned for marrying “up” And people don’t get that he worked really fucking hard to get into that social group!  (And, like, never mind that her very haughty and aristocratic family accepted him just fine, and they knew the truth of his beginnings better than anyone at the time).  

Did they bring things besides love to their marriage?  Yes, but that’s absolutely normal and ok since people are still doing the same damn thing today.

I can’t remember which book it’s from, but there’s a quote that’s basically like they deserved one another in the best way and were a great match: he was going to go far in life and she was a girl who deserved the type of husband who would end up on money; and he was smart and worked hard and deserved legitimacy through the Schuylers and a wife who would help him along in his career.  

These two met because they were looking for someone like the other.  But it worked out for them because they fell in love.

When it comes to Hamilton, people need to stop focusing so much on that first part.

I want my friends to read The Raven Cycle really really bad. So, I have a question for everyone who enjoyed the books: what do you love about TRC and/or what’s one sentence you’d use to describe it?


please read if you run, or send questions to, a pendulum kin blog

i really think all pendulum kin blogs need to seriously consider what they’re doing. as a basic rule, you cannot tell anyone else what their kintypes are, nor can they tell you what yours are. if someone describes their experiences, you are free to give suggestions or help to them, but you cannot say with any certainty who or what they are ever. this is a very serious personal thing that takes time to understand and figure out, and your pendulum can help nobody but yourself figure this out. pendulums act on subconscious impulses, meaning if you want to learn things about yourself, they’re great, but they’re not great for telling anyone else who they are. 

ask yourself: how do you know you’re not just giving random answers to people? how do you know you’re not leading people astray by telling them their kintype is something it isn’t, or telling them their kintype isn’t something when it in fact is? 

i know people don’t mean any harm by this but it’s so irresponsible and has the potential to be very dangerous. the reason it’s really frowned upon to tell people what their kintype is is (a) it’s acting like you know someone better than they know themselves and (b) it’s extremely easy to manipulate people in this way (eg. telling someone their kintype is the same as yours, or that you knew each other in a past life in order to manipulate that person). 

i can guarantee you that if i sent in questions to different pendulum blogs asking if i am my kintype, i wouldn’t get all “yes” answers, so what makes you sure that your pendulum gives correct answers 100% of the time?

just because otherkin can be a spiritual concept doesn’t mean anyone should rely on a random person on the internet’s dubious magical abilities to tell them deep truths about themselves. i’m not saying all magic is false by any means, nor that pendulums are useless, but when you’re claiming to have access to knowledge of who that person is at their very core through just an (often) anonymous message on a website, you really need to rethink the place of authority you’re putting yourself in over impressionable people.

i’d mega appreciate any reblogs, i’m worried for the safety of young (and older) otherkin in the community 

Chocobo Down ((Prompto feat. Chocobo/Bros))

This is what I was working on it’s so long help. I’m just not nice to these boys at all. I love them, honest. @kaciart‘s art here at of Prompto stepping up and doing his best under harsh conditions, along with his chocobo who is too good for this world. There’s a bit of blood, too.

Fun fact: ‘Ferrum’ means ‘blade/iron’ in Latin, fitting for ‘Gladio’ the sword, and ‘Mico’ translates to ‘flash’ like a camera. Pretty cool, huh P:

“Between you and me, I’ve got the better bird.”

“Oh yeah? And why is Mico best bird?”

Ferrum,” Gladio corrects, amusement in his rumble of a voice at the gunner’s failed ruse. “Is far stronger and could eat that puny chickatrice of yours for breakfast.”

I need your help!

Yep here I am, asking for your assistance in completing my very last minute media research analysis.

I am a second-year university student studying a Bachelor of International Relations doing a dual major in Islam-West Relations and International Relations. For one of my courses this semester - Islam, Media, and Conflict - I am required to select an event covered by the mass media concerning Islam or Muslims and analyse the content and response to the coverage. Part of my assessment requires analysing an audience’s response to the coverage in the method of conducting a survey. 

The survey takes approximately 5 minutes to complete and does not require any previous knowledge about the attack my study focuses on. By completing this, you will be helping me out greatly (aka if you guys do this then I won’t have to make up 50 fake answers)

Here is the link to the survey.

The survey is 100% anonymous and can be taken by anyone 13+ regardless of where in the world you live. It would be amazing if you could help spread the word because 1 reblog = 1 less emotional breakdown on monday when I go to write my analysis.

Question Time!

Within the Harry Potter fandom, there is obvious controversy over Harry and Ginny’s naming of Albus Severus – many fans claim that the characters after whom he is named do not deserve this special treatment, and supply other characters who act as mentors/familial figures who had significant positive impacts on Harry and Ginny’s lives for their son’s name instead.

What is your opinion on Harry and Ginny’s name choices for Albus Severus? If you are opposed to the choices, which characters do you think Harry and Ginny should have chosen to name him after instead?
