Yo, this is more than just disgusting, it’s illegal. It’s against the law to alter and distribute personal pictures without their permission; and it’s especially against the fucking law to create false porn with it. That’s slander, defamation, libel; whatever you want to…
my husband got in a car accident on june 25th. the repairs are going to be at least $500 for this accident. i have had at least 3 panic attacks a day since that day, trying to make ends meet.
my friend is homeless because her boyfriend overdosed on heroin. i was going to try to help her, but we just can’t right now. this is the third person in my life who has died from an overdose so far. we’re dropping like flies and i’m just happy that i kicked my dxm habit last year or else somebody else might be on this account right now making a journal that i had died. i was close, but i’m safe now because i was able to quit.
we have somebody living in my house right now that i hate. a lot of other people hate them, too. especially in the furry community. i will not give a name or any information for my own protection and for theirs. i’m trying to get rid of them. i told my husband it wasn’t ok to bring them here but he did it anyway. that person owes us another $700 for rent and groceries.
i started working at walgreens and i don’t have much time to do art. i only get a few days off and trying to force myself to draw on those days really isn’t working for me. i do my best to try to finish it but unfortunately those commissions are on hold until i can finish what is in my queue. even though i’m working, we’re still not much better off. i can only work the hours they give me and they won’t give me more than 30 because they don’t want to offer me health insurance.
i’m taking my husband off the title to my car and he is not allowed to drive it anymore. this is because of the accident on the 25th and the accident this morning which has ruined the transmission and possibly the tire on the passenger side. he ran into a tree because the steering locked up. this repair will be another $2000 at the least, plus towing costs. we’re still trying to figure that out but i’m expecting another $500.
that’s $3000 for the car to get it up and running. my apartment complex will not let me store the car in my lot because it isn’t able to drive.
i have bills to pay but i think i can handle those with my paycheck, but i definitely can’t handle the $3000 right now. I only have $200 in my bank account and we still need groceries.
[b]i’m taking any help i can because i can’t do this alone. please do not give if you can’t. i will try doing some commissions or design sales to try to raise money. like i said, i can’t really handle any more commissions but i am going to open a waiting list with 20 slots. drawings without backgrounds are $30. drawings with backgrounds are $70. i can do badges for $25 and i’ll be opening up for some sketches to try to get things handled with that.[/b]
for now i’m just going to unwind and calm down because i really don’t want to wind up in the hospital with more debt. i’m already in debt for $250 for my last hospital visit. we really need some help. i took out extra student loans because i am also in school to try to better my situation in the long run. even after the loan money we still only have a few hundred in the bank and our food situation isn’t great. i’m asking for help from my local friends as well as far as rides go or something.
[b]my paypal is email@example.com[/b]
signal boosts or donations are very appreciated. i’m sorry if i don’t sound very passionate or friendly right now, i’m in shock after this and i don’t know how i can handle this. i’m at the end of my rope and i really want to get high but i have to stay sober. i’m going to AA meetings to try to keep myself clean for now.
i’m really ashamed to ask for help but i can’t do this alone.
thank you guys so much and i love all of you. if i didn’t have this community, i don’t know what i would do. thank you so much everyone. i really love all of you guys.
email me at any time to get more information or just to talk. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
psa, help this artist plz
the fact that there’s only about 5000 people who’ve reblogged this scares me. That means that less that 5000 people know where these come from.
I feel old…
literally every person on earth has read the very hungry caterpillar
lets talk about how dreamworks made a main character with a prosthetic limb. lets talk about how his best friend and his dads best friend also had fully functional prosthetics that weren’t made to look inconspicuous. let’s talk about how the females are all kick ass, but have the capacity to be human. let’s talk about how the only sexualized thing in how to train your dragon 2 was eret son of eret’s arms
I’m babysitting my 2 year old sister and she wanted me to read her a bedtime story but her books are all an insult to literature everywhere, so I read her some Johnlock smut…
i’m SO GLAD
OKAY LISTEN UP UK, GERMANY, SPAIN, NORWAY, TO WHOM THIS MAY CONCERN. Httyd2 has not done as well as expected on opening weekend in America. This makes it our duty to make this film a massive smash HIT in our countries when it’s released. We need to knock it out the park. Dreamworks animation DEPENDS on us at this very moment. I don’t know about you but I sure as hell am NOT gonna let any kid grow up without this amazing company and exceptional original stories. BROTHERS, SISTERS, DRAGONS. STAND WITH ME AND MARCH FORTH INTO THE CINEMA. SPREAD THIS MESSAGE FAR AND WIDE. DREAMWORKS ANIMATION WILL NOT FALL. WE CAN STILL DO THIS.
THIS IS IMPORTANT.
DREAMWORKS NEEDS US.
SPREAD THIS LIKE A WILDFIRE
Ok so I can’t make this post all formal because I need to do this quick because we’re running out of time.
Just today I found out there are only 55 of them left in the world and it makes me sad seeing my favourite animal facing extinction. So I need your help to spread the word and sign this petition to help save the last 55. All you need to do is enter your name, email address and the country you live in. It’s not that much, guys!
Help make a difference
signal boost this!!
the cutesy comics that sometimes go around tumblr about how EVERYONE LEAVES ME or NO ONE LOVES ME ENOUGH or I’M JEALOUS BECAUSE MY FRIENDS HAVE FRIENDS are so nasty and emotionally manipulative and doing them up with bunnies and sunshine doesn’t make the toxic manipulation and guilting they perpetuate any cuter
Body manipulation and planet manipulation! Shit is gonna go doooooooown
DragonCon, 2013, a horrible photo was taken of me.
I say horrible, I’m not really a fan of it, my hair isn’t brushed, I’m not rocking a lot of makeup, I’m sweaty, sick, and I look like Stay Puft thanks to the red monster in my belly, but it’s DragonCon, and I worked damn hard on our costumes and I don’t want to be the reason my boyfriend doesn’t wear the giant fuck space suit I made him for his birthday.
A site posts the picture here and there are a handful of polite comments, and then there are comments that look like this:
I would like to point out that at the time these photos were taken, I had lost around 30 lbs, was a size 12 (not that that mattered, apparently), and worked over 6 days to make his space suit from the ground up. I designed a pattern for the Satan Pit jacket completely from scratch and made it with my Mom the week before the convention. I have never worked on a more frustrating costume, but I wanted something special for my boyfriend’s birthday because he sharing Doctor Who with me was how we became friends, and started dating - 4.5 years later, we still are.
I received anons asking if he’d dumped me yet, asking what hold I had over him that would make him stay with me, even had people accuse me of witchcraft (because I love Harry Potter too so, you know, obviously I’m a bad witch) and a beard for his sexuality (“You must be a fag hag or why wud he be with u”). I’ve been told that I’m an idiot for attempting to be Rose and that I should give up because ‘no doctor would want to bang me’ (hahaha let’s just say the bf has roughly 5 years of contradictions for that guy - and even if he didn’t, yeah, okay, that’s totes why I cosplay, is to get banged by douches like that). I wish I could tell you that it was all bottom dwelling dude assholes, but so many of these comments are made or liked by women - even fellow Rose Tyler Cosplayers.
The fact that this happened in 2013 and it still gets to me is very sad, and hard for me to talk about. Cosplaying was my escape from a lifetime of abuse, physical and emotional in previous relationships. From a father who told me I looked both pregnant AND like a fat old man (which, to do at the same time is quite a feat, I suppose), to an ex fiancee who thought it would be okay to put shit in my drinks and force me to have sex with him two weeks after I dumped him for cheating on me (don’t backslide ladies, you probably don’t really wanna be friends).
It was fun and wonderful that this terrific human being believed in me - and made me believe in myself. It really was the Doctor meeting Rose, in finding someone who thought I was capable of being greater, I too learned to believe it.
My point is this… I used to go to every convention dressed as Rose. Hell, I’d go to theme parks, the mall, you name it, in full on Rose Tyler gear. I have almost every single episode outfit from Season 2, and made most of them myself. So many people are going to read this and think I’m being a giant baby, and that “Well, you’re a cosplayer, that’s the risk you take when you put yourself out there.” But here’s the thing - Yes. Yes, it has come to the point where it IS a risk to wear what I want to wear. It IS a risk that people will hate me for going out in public with someone I love very much because the world doesn’t think I’m good enough for him based solely on my looks. That’s the problem.
I want to tell people who have felt this to be strong, and that it doesn’t affect me, and that I don’t think about it every day: but I do. I do, and it is so damn hard and I try a little more every day to just stop thinking about it because I KNOW that by even listening to these jerks, I am giving them the power. I guess my reason for posting this is that I want others who’ve experienced this to know they aren’t alone. I want the people who think the internet is a beautiful anonymous place to realize that those people you’re making fun of or judging or saying should costume something else regardless of how much you love the character you’re already representing because you’re “too fat” or “too old” by their standards, that we see that shit. We read every line, we remember EVERY LINE, and it is RUINING the community. I don’t care if you are beautiful, and the best and 5’4” and perfect looking - I mean damn, I’m in a community of Rose Tylers and I know for a fact that behind my back people like to talk about how much better they are than me because of X or Y. What you do on your own time is your own business, but I urge you, please, STOP being so negative about other people. Fun fact, I don’t CARE why you do it, if it’s cause you get off on other people’s pain, or because it makes YOU feel better. I like to think women are finally progressing to a point where they no longer think it’s cool to tout ‘pshh women, all my friends are dudes’, or think that by hating every other woman who is a little bit different than you that it somehow makes you ‘cooler’ and therefor less likely to be bullied in the same way that you’re bullying those other women WHETHER OR NOT you supposedly care about what others think. I can’t watch Doctor Who without getting really sad, and I hate that those I want to hold responsible for making something that was once so fun, and so important to me that it picked me up out of a depression are people who could care less about how they made me feel. Please. Just for once - *think* about someone else for a change, And before the “not all cosplayers” anons begin, of COURSE not all cosplayers. I’ve had some great experiences with cosplay, made tons of friends, hell I’ve been featured on the BBCA and BBC sites for our cosplays on more than one occassion- but while not all, enough. ENOUGH to know that my closet has a collection of Rose Tyler cosplays that might as well be a closet of skeletons for the amount of time they’ve been worn in the last year and a half. I made the costume from the dang 50th anniversary episode, and the same negativity kept me from wearing that more than just on the day. As I said, I’m working on it - but man, is it hard.
In the hopes of removing this tumor from my social experience, and in the hopes that a Doctor Who community you would think would want to be supportive of it’s fans regardless of what they look like, I sent the facebook page the following message
"Hey The Doctor Who Hub,
There’s something about this photo that bothers me. The nature of the comments are extremely rude and meant to be hurtful. Almost every comment about that Rose Cosplay is judging the cosplayer on her personal looks alone, not even on the costume itself, and promotes exactly the attitude the cosplay community spends every day trying to rid itself of. The photo has been up for quite some time already and I feel that as I am in this photo, it is fair that I ask it to be removed, (also as I did not give permission for such a bad picture to be posted on your site in the first place). Would you please take it down? Thanks.”
The Page responded by untagging me in the photograph and blocking me from ever messaging them again.
I can’t stop the internet (you can’t stop the signal!)… but maybe, just MAYBE- ONE of you that read this will reblog it. And maybe ONE of you who judge others so easily instead of retreating into WHY you judge instead of IF you should at all will second guess yourself. If you don’t like that cosplay, fine - but don’t think that because you have a screen name that it makes whatever you say next hurt less to the person you’re spitting it at.
"The average writer has three plot holes a story" factoid actually just statistical error. Steven Moffat, who lives in a cave and has over 10,000 plot holes an episode, is an outlier adn should not have been counted.
Damnit I want to draw but my hand won’t cooperate with my mental image
It’s okay. That happens sometimes. My solution is to draw something else that’s kinda like it, then draw something more like it, etc. until you eventually spiral in to what you want. So, uh— DRAW DRAGONS

There are about 31,251 square miles of roads, parking lots, driveways, playgrounds, bike paths, and sidewalks in the lower 48 states. If Julie and Scott Brusaw have their way, they will all someday be replaced with solar panels.
For the better part of a decade, the Idaho couple has been working on prototyping an industrial-strength panel that could withstand the weight of even the largest trucks. They now appear to have cracked the formula, developing a specially textured glass coating for the panels that can not only bear tremendous loads but also support standard tire traction.
By their reckoning, at peak installation their panelized roads could produce more than three times the electricity consumed in the U.S.
The material could power electric vehicles through a receiver plate mounted beneath the vehicle and a transmitter plate is installed in the road.
THIS IS UNBELIEVABLY IMPORTANT AND UNBELIEVABLY DISAPPOINTING THAT IT’S GOTTEN SUCH LITTLE ATTENTION.
PEOPLE THINK ABOUT IT, JUST HOW MANY ROADS THERE ARE ALL OVER THE WORLD AND HOW MUCH ENERGY COULD BE PRODUCED USING THESE LIKE SERIOUSLY “THREE TIMES THE ELECTRICITY CONSUMED IN THE U.S”. IT’S NOT JUST GOING TO HELP REDUCE THE AMOUNTS OF GREEN HOUSE EMISSIONS, IT’S GOING TO CREATE JOBS IN THE COUNTRIES IT’S USED IN. IT HAS SO MUCH EXTRA STUFF IT’S UNBELIEVABLE HOW AMAZING THE ROAD COULD BE.
THESE PEOPLE ARE SAINTS, THEY’VE WORKED THEIR BUTTS OFF AND VOLUNTEERS HAVE WORKED JUST AS HARD TO GET TO THIS LEVEL BUT THEY STILL HAVE JUST UNDER $ 800,000 TO RAISE IN 15 DAYS.
THIS SORTA STUFF IS HOW WE’RE GOING TO CREATE A GREENER EARTH AND IT’S BEEN VIRTUALLY IGNORED BY TUMBLR. WE NEED TO SUPPORT THIS STUFF AND THESE SORTS OF PEOPLE WHO SELFLESSLY DEDICATE THEIR WORK TO CREATING A BETTER WORLD.
PLEASASASASASSSSSSEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE PEOPLE NEED TO SEE THIS.
NOT TO MENTION if cars are designed to RUN on this we would no longer need to burn fuel
No more buying gas.
