today in “weirdly enough: social issues as observed on stock photo websites:”

when you go to the “health” section (looking for photos of people preparing food for themselves for a thing about life-skills-training in rehab) and the first half a page of photos are of women wrapping measuring tapes around their stomachs or holding out the waistbands of their now-too-big-jeans.

HEALTH = LOSING WEIGHT = HAVING THIS ONE BODY TYPE AND NOTHING ELSE.

wtf i just wanted a picture of someone eating a vegetable or something.

whY.

stupid tumblr ads have informed me that the movie of fifty shades of gray is happening sometime soon.

whee I get to return to mentally yelling SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP at like half the internet.

and now I can finally share the pieces I did for the TPP artist collab :>

The first three are characters I chose. AJ because my most popular post was a comic about him and I thought, why not; Master Goldeen because he’s my signature character; and AA-j because…well, I asked, I guess.

The next four were done as backups, where their original artists either had dropped out or hadn’t shown any signs of nearing completion days before the deadline. Only the first two images were used in the final composition though, because Helixian submitted just in time. In particular I really enjoyed working on jjgriffin’s M4 and C3 sketch even though it took the longest.

All in all an experience to remember. I learnt so much and thank all the artists who were in this project with me.

How does this even happen? I have to get most legendaries beaten to an inch of their life, asleep, with every button pressed and my first born sacrificed for some catches. And TPP just throws a ball at full HP and catches a fucking shiny Zekrom like it aint even a thing.

That realization would actually terrify me. Because stories have structures of conflict that have been largely absent from her run, and that would make me wonder if my story was destined to take a darker turn.

…oh god this is an angle my mind hadn’t gotten to yet (since this was a thing i planned/wanted to write like, more near the middle of the run, before the not-painfulness of it was as certain.)

(but yeah, that. wondering what’s wrong when the process isn’t Hurting you like it should be Hurting you, and what does that mean you are, and what does that mean this is.)

(and that plays into my weird background “tpp protags as a variety of metaphors for different ways of experiencing/processing adolescence” thing that i would totally write if i still lived in Academialand and/or was in a class with tim seiber (who SO would have let me write 50 tpp papers.))

aaaaaaah.
