here’s one from last year: varric and hawke wearing holiday sweaters they were given by friends, a sketch for fuckyeahvarric
For the first time ever i got to try out a tablet where you draw directly on the screen.
It is so much better than my index card sized tablet that supposedly maps to my computer screen and upon which my line art skills are roughly equivalent in shakiness to me at age 5.
I never knew what I was missing.
Now I know.

Another set of Holiday Hawkes just because.
My apologies for the substitution of glittery nipples and chest hair in place of glittery clothing.
But come on, how awesome are glittery chest areas, though?
I may end up doing more of these with Hawkes that I’m less familiar with, or heck Hawkes I’m familiar with but forgot like a jerk this time around, in the next month.
Provided no one mallets my askbox because of this silliness.
(third down on the right. that’s my sparkle-hawke!
at last with an outfit of sufficient quality to escort a fellow with similarly gleaming chest hair to a holiday party.)
I harbor deep resentment for websites that are one letter off from the URL I meant to type.

but why is it so much easier to start something new than work on the things in progress.

my tumblr style mimics the rest of my life:
simultaneously wants the attention and does not want the attention

It was open season on black women on Twitter Sunday night. The tweets in the ugly trending topic compared black women’s bodies w/ animals, furniture & food. Black women’s existence was a joke. The topic trended for hours & reached the #2 trending topic spot. Post-racial Amercia? Um, OK.
this is a thing that happened. I actually cried, then I cried more. Someone wrote about it much more eloquently than I could. YT feminists had nothing to say ofc. Here is another article, its got some great comments.
This one is my fave and perhaps the most astute.
I probably would not have even pulled myself together to make this post if hadn’t gone looking for something to read to make myself feel better and found this quote from Baha’u’llah:
“O SON OF MAN! Write all that We have revealed unto thee with the ink of light upon the tablet of thy spirit. Should this not be in thy power, then make thine ink of the essence of thy heart. If this thou canst not do, then write with that crimson ink that hath been shed in My path. Sweeter indeed is this to Me than all else, that its light may endure for ever.”
So write the truth that I know. This is a terrible sad thing that happened, it is both racist and misogynist, and anyone who knows of this and tries to deny the existence of racism, or tries to say that black women don’t need “black girls rock” or The Abbie Mills Defense Brigade, or any of the other spaces that we create for ourselves is a racist fool whom for whom I have neither mercy nor kindness.
Open season on black women is over.
so few notes. if the trending topic had been #stopthelesbians tumblr would be all over this shit. stop talking a good game about intersectionality in your feminism if you can’t even be bothered to reblog.
Sometimes shit is so fucked up that you need a whole new category of trigger warnings for this shit.
All above bold mine.
get out of my head, modern AU involving OTP + explicit content, i’m still having a work day!
