“ok, new plan”
As we predicted when Trump took office, he immediately set about dismantling any kind of safety regulations that limit corporate profits and it’s already having a serious and direct impact on our health. This is going to literally kill people.

This is the single best take on Dragon Age 2 I’ve ever read and why I will defend it with my life AND TWO OF THE WRITERS BASICALLY CONFIRMED IT??
(Also everyone go follow Margaret Owen on twitter. she writes books.)

Arishok: Do you want to know how I actually hurt my wrists?
Arishok: I was hula-hooping. I attend a class for both fitness and for fun.
Hawke: Oh my god.
Arishok: I mastered all the moves. The pizza toss, the tornado, the scorpion, the oopsie doodle.
Hawke: Why are you telling me this?
Arishok: Because no one will ever believe you.
Hawke: You sick son of a bitch.
I know this is a fun tweet and all that but it absolutely is an instance of striaght privilege. Heterosexual people have up to seven years to explore their sexual and romantic attraction in an environment that is designed for them while many queer youth deligate their time in maneuvering their identity in response to themselves and their environment. It’s one of the reasons why dating as a queer adult is so hard: so many of us are romantically undersocialized when compared to our heterosexual peers, who are not only given social liscence to explore themselves, but who have the additional benefit of being able to see themselves in media.
There will always be exceptions to this, of course, but it’s so sad to see how the effects of childhood homophobia haunt us well into our adult years, to the point where it limits our opportunity to connect with other people around us.
Wasserspeier am Freiburger Münster
WINTER IS A BAD TIME.
What it feels like to chew 5 Gum
IT’S MY FAVORITE GARGOYLE BACK AGAIN FOR WINTERTIME.
I want to know the exact conversation that lead to the creation of this abomination
Ye olde German architect: “ok, it’s time to put in the rainspouts and last night I was out with the lads and Hans had too much and the point is I had the FUNNIEST idea…” *Holds up drawing*
Ye olde German Architect Supervisor: * snorts beer out of his nose.* “YES. BUILD IT IMMEDIATELY.”
That’s gussy babe
Sooooo I just came back from studying in Freiburg and went on a tour of the Münster with a historian who knew all of the insider secrets and the story is even better than you think.
It took more than 300 years to build the Freiburger Münster (1200s-1500s), so they went through a lot of architects and people who paid those architects. Some of the patrons were dicks and one of those dicks lived in a house right next to the Münster. The asshat kept demanding they work faster and changed his mind every five hours about what he wanted and THEN he refused to pay the architects because he wasn’t happy with what they’d done.
That really pissed the builders off so in retaliation, the head architect built the butt gargoyle facing his house so that every morning for the rest of his life, when the dick looked out his window at the Münster, he’d have to look at a gargoyle butt.
So, the defecating gargoyle is a big fat “fuck you” to someone’s dick of a boss that has survived 500 years and two world wars
When I first played DAI I (obviously) played an elf, and I just couldn’t get over how weird it looked when she crossed her arms. But hey, I thought, it’s probably because it’s a pose adapted for all of the races. I’m sure this holding your arms all high up and out from your body makes sense on the beefcake qunari.
Then I played a qunari and it was the same unfortunate pose.
I have questions.

I know this can seem like a really harsh lesson sometimes. But if you’re taking meds, you absolutely. must. consult. your. doctor. if you want to stop.
I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH.
YES THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.
seriously I tried that once and I became very ill - please don’t stop taking your medication without first talking it through with your doctor.
I once thought it was okay to go without my anti-depressants for a few days because I didn’t want to bother my mom when she was already short on money.
I cannot stress how much of a bad idea that was.
DO NOT DO IT
Especially if you are on a medication with a very short half life, like Effexor. You will feel ill and shaky and monstrously awful the very next day. Please take care of yourself we love you
My latest piece: Our Blessed Rebel Queen, Carrie Fisher
done in watercolour and ink.
Carrie Fisher has always been a great inspiration to me. As someone who suffers from depression and anxiety, I wanted to create a piece to bring me and comfort and strength. To look upon Space Mom and say “yes, I can face today.”
