1. This year my family and I went on holidays to Malaysia. My younger  sister (who is crazy good at art) decided to use this opportunity to practise her painting since she had given it up for exams.

    Because she decided that her drawing “wasn’t good enough to waste paper on” she got really into body art while we were there.

    BUT A BRIEF BIT OF HISTORY. last time we were in malaysia I was stung by a jellyfish, has a bad allergic reaction and had to be rushed to the ER where I was given beautiful painkillers which also wore off as soon as I got home, where I spent one of the most painful nights of my life

    and what does my younger sister choose to draw on me?

    that little shit

     
  2. My main dame, the love of my life and my westie bestie ellemacattack drew me as a badass space pirate

    I love it and will spend the rest of my life trying to live up to this depiction of myself

    Liz has an Etsy here! You should commission her for ALL the things, she draws in all these different styles, it’s crazy i love her liz marry me though

     

  3. "Until I started taking my antidepressants, though, I didn’t actually know that I was depressed. I thought the dark staticky corners were part of who I was. It was the same way I felt before I put on my first pair of glasses at age 14 and suddenly realized that trees weren’t green blobs but intricate filigrees of thousands of individual leaves; I hadn’t known, before, that I couldn’t see the leaves, because I didn’t realize that seeing leaves was a possibility at all. And it wasn’t until I started using tools to counterbalance my depression that I even realized there was depression there to need counterbalancing. I had no idea that not everyone felt the gravitational pull of nothingness, the ongoing, slow-as-molasses feeling of melting down into a lump of clay. I had no way of knowing that what I thought were just my ingrained bad habits — not being able to deposit checks on time, not replying to totally pleasant emails for long enough that friendships were ruined, having silent meltdowns over getting dressed in the morning, even not going to the bathroom despite really, really, really having to pee — weren’t actually my habits at all. They were the habits of depression, which whoa, holy shit, it turns out I had a raging case of."

    God I can only hope!

    I’m just sitting rocking frantically back and forth muttering “what must be will be” and “there is a plan” and other vague and unhelpful platitudes of that nature

When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about."

  7. Anonymous said: And just how are Doctor Who and Sherlock homophobic? Have you even seen series three of Sherlock? Moffat is playing right along with the fandoms JohnLock ship! Sure, got married to a woman, but you can see how that hurts Sherlock because the relationship is gone. Doctor Who has an interspecies lesbian couple, if I recall correctly. Maybe if you watched the shows instead of just judging, you'd know this. Ugh. You make me sick.

    feminism5ever:

    I’m really not in the mood to deal with the bullshit from Moffat stans now so I’m just going to write whatever’s at the top of my head in point-form.

    Sherlock:

    • Queer-baiting is everywhere in the two shows. You said it yourself, Moffat “is playing right along”, to humor the viewers but never with the intention to have a canon gay couple. There is plenty of innuendos and implications of John and Sherlock being a couple, but Moffat is just toying with us. 
    • John and Sherlock being a couple is also treated as a comedic hook. It’s used again and again whenever he wants to elicit laughter from the audience. We’re meant to laugh when someone in the show implies that they’re a couple, and we’re meant to laugh again when they reply with a disgusted face that they are not. 
    • Irene Adler is a self-proclaimed lesbian but her sexuality suddenly changes once she meets a “good-looking, intelligent, intriguing” man. (I put those in quotation marks because I don’t think he is any of those things.) She becomes enamored with Sherlock, to the extent that her reasoning faculties are compromised. This reinforces the heteronormativity and the idea that lesbians are just waiting for the right guy to come and sweep them away. 
    • Can’t comment on Season 3 because I haven’t been bothered to watch it, but going by Moffat’s rep I’m not expecting anything better than the first two seasons. 

    Doctor Who:

    • Again, homosexual people are there for comedic effect than to drive the plot on. We’re not interested in them for who they are: they’re only there to make us laugh.
    • The Doctor kisses Rory in the dinosaur episode - for laughs. Rory responds with a face of disgust, and a guy-on-guy kiss is taken as unheard of and alien-like (something that the Doctor, who is characterized as having no idea of human conventions, does because he is an alien).
    • Jenny and Vastra is a lesbian couple and that’s good for representation and all, until we look at how their relationship is characterized. There are constant (sometimes implicit) jokes about their sexuality. Jenny is sexualised and assaulted by the Doctor. 
    • Clara’s relationship with a girl was dismissed as a “phase”, again for laughs. 
    • We have an unnamed gay couple in A Good Man Goes To War who are described just as “the Fat One and the Thin One” because apparently being gay is so uncommon that there is only one couple made up of a fat man and a thin man. They’re not given names - they’re nameless entities, existing only for humor. 

    In sum, Moffat is a piece of shit, and I didn’t even address the racism and misogyny in the above points.

    aka “Elitism is my middle name”

    I like how Moffat would say that Reinette - a female character that he wrote into the show - is obviously a perfect match for the Doctor based on her level of ‘civilization’ and education.

    As opposed to oh say…Rose Tyler - a lower-class girl who never went to university - whom the Doctor actually fell in love with and did settle down with in another universe.

    This quote just has it all, doesn’t it?

    - The elitism

    - The dig at Rose Tyler and RTD, by extension

    - The elevation of ‘his’ character at the expense of existing ones.

    - The implication that Madame de Pompadour - one of the most powerful women in the country - would of course drop everything she had worked for to go and ‘settle down’ with a man who is basically a homeless spacehobo.

    People who call Moffat a talentless hack are mistaken.  It takes some skill to cram that much fail into just three sentences.

    Hah, excellent Moffat-criticism here. He is so petty, and so unequipped to write insightful sci-fi.

    Like, okay, let’s pretend for a second that by “educated and civilised” he means “has a lot of knowledge and social insight” (which is a valid thing to look for in a romantic partner) rather than, you know, “rich, fancy and subservient” (which is what Moffat expects people to look for in a romantic partner).

    … I really don’t think that an 18th century aristocrat has more understanding of science and society than a 21st person without A levels but with a working television. And in any case, if the Doctor was really looking for people who are Intellectual Equals, he’d surely look in the future, when people understand time travel, and have wikipedia installed in their brains, or whatever. Or AIs! I can’t imagine anyone more educated and ‘civilised’ than AI people!

    Just, one thing I really loved about RTD’s Who arcs - which Moffat clearly didn’t understand at all - was that EVERYTHING the companions knew was useful - Harry Potter trivia! Game-show quickness! Fast typing! - and that the, like, real-world hierarchy of skills and marketability was always shown as less important than courage and compassion.

    WITHOUT A LEVELS BUT WITH A WORKING TELEVISION

    YES THIS.

    I’m imagining the real Madame de Pompadour and how very unimpressed she would be by Steven Moffat declaring his ~admiration for her, but

    wow

    did this man just admit that he think the position of Companion is actually the Doctor’s maîtresse-en-titre?  Jesus wept.

    That is exactly what this man thinks, and what he writes also. He thinks women are wired to ‘cling’ and men are wired to want to escape them, and the only way a relationship can be agreeable to both parties is if the woman accepts that they can only spend time together when the dude initiates it.

    … Suddenly I am kinda surprised that Sherlock and Irene didn’t set up a long-distance relationship where she spends her days in an orientalist parody of a villa, waiting for Sherlock and passing the time taking luxurious bubble-baths and emotionlessly spanking female nobility.

    Oh my god this is some sick shit— and really, really, really highlights how much Moffat doesn’t understand the fundamental heart of the show he’s fucking running. If the Doctor was so hot for intelligent, well educated, civilized women why the fuck did he ever leave his home planet? Why has he only ever had one Gallifreyan companion after he left his granddaughter to go her own way? Romana was foisted on him by the time lord ellimist, he didn’t go picking her out of a catalogue. 

    The Doctor runs around with soldiers and schoolkids and teachers and sailors and students and journalists and shop girls and alien refugees and orphans and robot dogs and barbarians and private detective penguins and renegade archaeologists. If he wanted a slice of properly civilized girlfriend he had the whole universe to go pick one out from, and he never did till Moffat wrote him launching himself smooch-first at the lady in the fancy dress and historically inaccurate boobies.

    Goddamn I am so mad.
