man nothing can parallel hearing a girl behind me start a phone saying "oh, you guys are woke" other than the sheer relief of her immediately countinuing with "i thought you were asleep."

shout out to the girl i saw wearing what was either a backless tank top or a backless body suit while in line for food at 12 am, what a lady

we had a club fare last night on campus and i'm really excited for some of them, especially the illustrators club :D!!!

i went to a campus thing where we were braiding dog toys for the humane society and ended up teaching a couple guys how to braid. they were so focused while i was demonstrating it to them it was honestly really endearing.

hey since the commision market is being figured out rn i want to know how many of my followers would be interested in buying commissions for me! if that is something y'all would be into could you comment on this saying what kind of price you'd expect for, like, a flat-colored single person peice so i can gauge what the range should be?

my art can be found here btw

the idea of "dark=good" and "light=bad" appeals to me more and more so i might just make a real quick silmarillion AU of it

and i know it's been done a lot, like, villains POV this, sexy misunderstood Melkor that, and that's valid but it's not about the characters for me (not like i remember them), i just want to play around and see if i can make the entire concept of light bad

and there is only three of you on waterfall who can stop me 

babushka -

idk how to cite comments but @spaded-aces GETS IT

babushka -

to ensure that the darkness is good we only need a couple of things:

  • get rid of any night predators so that the fear of the dark would not have developed in the first place
  • give everyone night vision (i think elves already have it and humans existed in the dark for some time since their awakening and managed pretty well so) 
  • make the climate warm enough so the abscence of light/fire would not equal freezing and death
  • stars don't count as evil light so Varda can stay. stars are also pretty deadly but too far to hurt anyone so. 

babushka -

@katiebirdie yeah! Darkness being a welcoming place to hide is also a topic i wanted to go off with on @rave.

also i WANT to ensure that light might claim it "allows you to see what things really are", but the darkness is the initial state of everything, before and after different light sources disappear. things look different in the different light, and it can be used as a decieving tactic. god i'm on a ROLL TODAY 

babushka -

the only down side of darkness is that it doesn't really produce anything, where as light/fire/warmth is actively used by humanity in a lot of useful things

spaded-aces -

Darkness helps people hunt unseen, provides cover and security where light exposes them!

babushka -

yeah but you can't cook stuff on the darkness or something like that

katiebirdie -

theorectically you could probably use really hot hot springs to boil something? or maybe, like, the heat from gysers? don't quote me on it tho

love it when the trees scream like the devil 

transwerewolf -


Repour with which part of the body and head you start drawing first!!!

I start with the torso and nose :3

babushka -

i start with the head and finish with the head

transwerewolf -

Hdhbxhwhjsjsh ur so valid

katiebirdie -

head structure, ears, then the rest

do y'all,,,, know anything about resting heart rates? bc i got into one of my moods where i have 2 Know Something Rght Now so i counted out my bpm n its 50-60, which is like apparently not so great

coffeeandyarn -

or it means that youre SUPER healthy. mine rests at around 60-70 when I’m sitting or laying down. when I’m standing it rests closer to 70-80. 

on the other hand, something could be seriously wrong and you might want to see your healthcare provider if this has never happened before

katiebirdie -

i hit exactly 80 in a minute so i hope it's healthy lmao

im reading the psychology self-help books* and they all sound very neutorypical karen-y but that might be the entire point? to get rid of my anxiety (or mor like to soften it) i have to imagine life without anxious thoughts first. not to mention that meditation, apparently, actually works if done right and it's scientifically proven. i guess, in order to be a neurotypical you have to think like one

*keep in mind i am only saying this in relation to anxiety and depression 

katiebirdie -

so basically, fake it til you make it?
