AsexualityWe all are born with innocence. For everyone, it eventually fades away as life progresses, as we grow, learn and ask questions.More Like This
The one question that everyone asks at some point in their life, usually more than once, is the infamous Question, dreaded by parents everywhere. "Where do babies come from?"
For me, I finally got "The Talk" when I was eleven years old. It was well past midnight on a hot, sleepless, summer night. My mother and I were lying on top of the covers on her bed while the air conditioner hummed along. The Question came up, and she decided it was time to explain sex to me.
"That sounds weird. And kinda gross." I said afterwards.
"It does for now." She replied. "But when you get older you'll understand."
I took her word for it, and didn't think much else about "The Talk" and sex for several years after that.
Fast-forward through puberty, and I keep wondering when sex will stop sounding weird and start sounding normal. I keep waiting to experience those sexual urges that

Buried underneath a thousand written words.
All about you.
Something to pull myself out of the hole I fell in.
When I was offered a hand I reached up hoping they could hold me.
Now I lay here flat on my back watching the sky fall upon me.
Staring up thru my hole in the stars.
Remembering each night and each star.
The dirt dribbles over the edge at first.
I even hear a whisper.
But I know there not truly sorry.
The stars shine bright thru the darkness.
My pains drift away.
Thoughts fluent as my eyes close.
And the stars still shine thru my eyelids.
Memories but echoes bouncing away from me.
Toward the stars I say.
Thru the sixty feet of dirt and into the sky.
My hole is now a grave and I must return to once I came.
Leaving the remnants with you.
And now the echoes stick to you like my death.
But don't grieve or feel sorry.
You failed at pulling me from my hole.
In doing so you collapsed the world around me.
Don't fret, now I reside in the stars.
I exist away from you.

This is just a notice
As a fairly well known artist. I'm not super popular anything
but i will get hate. And people will take my art the wrong way.
And say things about my art that will upset me.
how they don't know if "they should laugh or vomit",
make rape jokes, even comment
how this is "rapey" or "looks like someone is getting raped tonight"
this is not a damn compliment
I have never intended my art to be taken this way.
It upsets me greatly that it has. I don't want to take some
of my art down. I'm proud of my art. But it's discouraging
when people bring me down about it, rather
than focusing on how much i've improved.
And i am very sorry if my art has ever been a trigger for
bad memories or made you uncomfortable in any way.
But Please, rape is serious, it is not a joke and it is
not a compliment.
and i would appreciate it if there would be no
Getting started with digital artAs an artist that does digital art, I always get a lot of questions about what tablets people should use and how to make their choices. While I think equipment isn't all that matters, I think some things are good to take in consideration when buying a tablet. So here's something to get you started!More Like This
Why do I need a tablet? Can't I use a mouse instead?
The biggest reason; ergonomics. When you do a lot of computer work in general, it's better to use a tablet over a mouse. This is because a mouse isn't designed for precision work. It's putting too much pressure on muscles that are not intended for precision work, hence it raises your chances to get all kinds of nasty injury's. Even if you can draw just fine with a computer mouse, you might actually consider to start using a tablet, for the reason that

Winter is Coming
Few phrases are more closely associated with the Game of Thrones fandom than this one. We know that winters in Game of Thrones are long, often lasting several years. It is also difficult for people in that world to predict when the seasons will change, the Citadel even has a special, rare breed of white raven they send out to deliver the news of the changing season. While this may just be the way that the seasons in the world of Game of Thrones

has sold our soul to the devil

our generation says
we march to the beat of our own drum
but it seems we stole this drum
from the old man at the music shop
who couldn't make enough to pay for his own skin,
to cover his crumbling bones
or maybe we've built this drum from his ashes,
because of what use are old men,
whose bodies could have been in an antique shop
is that the beat of the drum, or a whimpering call?

...I just saw a commercial for a corset-type thing for women to put around their waist...and it's supposed to, I quote: "give women that perfect hourglass figure".More Like This
It proceeded to show how it compresses the waist and makes you look like a Barbie doll, which is apparently the "perfect" body.
Seriously, it looked extremely painful and unnatural. And the worst part, they showed beautiful women with their natural bodies in the "before" pictures, as if implying that they needed to change.
It wasn't a joke ad.
I was waiting for a punchline that never happened.
Sorry that no woman actually has the perfect body and you had to spend your precious time FIXING that for us. Whoever the fuck made this thing, thank you for telling women everywhere that their bodies aren't perfect, that they should change them. Because we aren't fucking told that every time we turn on the tv. Really, thank you for enlightening us. I'm sure every girl is going to pick up the phone and order a product that suf

We didn’t understand this was not an admiration of the boat, not like the Porsche poster in my brother’s bedroom. This was about the valor of The Voyage, the courage to carry the family treasure across an ocean to begin a new life in a new land. A problem at sea meant a ho

“You can play next, only if you want to that is. I'm not trying to force you or anything.” Orihime's speech sped up and she became nervous. "It's okay if you don't want to play. I understand, really.”
“I never said I didn't want to play.” You stood from your seat and walked up to Orihime, smiling happily. “I wouldn't be here if I didn't want to play.”
“Oh, I guess that's true.” She placed a finger thoughtfully on her chin. “This is no time to space out.” With quick, jerky movements, Orihime grabbed the small duffel bag filled to the top with items. “Here you go, I'm sorry to keep you waiting.” Taking a quick survey of the items inside, you lifted up a clear plastic bag filled with candy. “I think that belongs to Toshiro, I think.”
An annoyed curse came from Toshiro's direction. He stood up and walked past you, going directly to the closet without a word. “He seems happy about this.
