Anonymous asked: That amazing draw with the two girls and water that turned into sex, is it really two girls or is a boy and a girl?

Oh let me tell you about my boyfriend, Saotome Ranma.

Ranma is a boy who turns into a girl when doused with cold water and back into a boy when doused with hot water. Just think about that… for a minute… 

And do yourself a favor and read and/or watch Ranma 1/2 ;>

when your url is literally “[your name]sucks” and you describe yourself as a “a 27 year old nobody doing nothing in particular with their life” and you spend your time attacking other people for making characters that make them happy

maybe the problem is not with other people

like, i don’t know your life, but maybe you should take a look at yourself & ur brand instead of getting salty about other people enjoying the chance to draw characters they enjoy in a community that (generally) doesn’t shit on them for it. (not to mention the fact that you’re speaking directly to a demographic that averages out about 7-9 years younger than you) (also as if a lot of ppl who draw “punk chunky brown girl[s] with piercings” aren’t doing so as a form of self-representation bc wow they exist and have a forum in which they’re not generally being crushed into hating themselves & feeling shunted out of the arts in general as woc suffer disproportionately in the arts w/r/t gallery and museum inclusion/creative industry hiring practices/etc.)

at least wait until any show at all is made starring a character even remotely resembling the one you’re fabricating before shitting on people for wanting it

(in ref to this)

From a hiring standpoint, it sets of humongous red flags when I check your social media and you’re constantly labeling yourself, your work, and the things you enjoy as ‘trash’.

Just putting that out there, in addition to everything this person has said.

i feel so ambivalent about korra being pulled.

On one hand, maybe it shouldn’t have spent 2 seasons full of suck with suck characters and suck plot and 0 character development. 

On the other, goddamn though there needs to be more lady fighting cartoons. :/

Not-A-Recipe Recipe

no-more-ramen:

I’m on a major food budget and I really don’t like cooking or cleaning up. This isn’t really a recipe, but it’s something I make in big batches and bring to work with me almost every day. I feel good about eating it, it’s filling, it’s cheap as hell, and it’s easy to change it up. I don’t have a name for it because it’s not a recipe so much as a suggestion of things that you can eat together?

Anyway, here’s what I usually use:

  • 1 cup of brown rice
  • 1 cup of quinoa (sometimes I skip this bc quinoa is kind of expensive but I use it when I can and adding it to rice is a good way to stretch the quinoa)
  • 1 can of beans (garbanzos are my fave but anything would work)
  • 1 cup of green lentils (I use dry bc that’s what is available to me)
  • As much frozen spinach as you want (I’ve used lots of other frozen vegetables but spinach is my fave)
  • Half a bouillon cube (I use veggie but whatever you want. Any kind of broth or stock would work. This is technically optional but for me it’s pretty necessary)
  • Any spices you want (I usually use cayenne and garlic powder at the least)
  • Onions are also good in this but I don’t usually use them because I forget to buy an onion, plus chopping them hurts my eyes too much and I’d have to dirty an extra pan to cook them.
  • Also optional: lemon juice and feta

I love making this bc most of the stuff just gets thrown in a pot and maybe stirred a couple times and that’s it. My steps usually go as follows:

1. Cook the brown rice with the bouillon cube for 20 minutes.

2. After 20 minutes, add the quinoa (and more water) and cook for an additional 20 minutes. They are usually done by now, maybe after an extra 5 or 10.

3. Transfer the rice/quinoa to a big bowl and use the same pot to cook the lentils. Put them in the same bowl when they’re done.

4. While those are cooking, microwave your spinach. Put in the bowl when it’s ready.

5. Drain your can of beans and dump ‘em in.

6. Add all your spices (and feta/a squirt of lemon juice if you want)

7. Mix it all up and that’s it!

This makes a TON of food for me and it saves nicely for a few days in the fridge. I’ve never frozen it but I never need to because I usually eat it for almost every meal when I do. When I eat this at work people ALWAYS ask me what it is and ask to try it. 

oh my god this is exactly the kind of recipe i need right now thank you

Marrying young is not the end of my freedom. It means I want to travel and see the world, but with her by my side. It means I still like drinking in bars and dancing in clubs, but stumbling home with her at 2am and eating pizza in our underwear. It means I know that I want to kiss those lips every morning, and every night before bed. If you see marriage as the end of your ‘freedom’, you’re doing it wrong.

Well this was just beautiful

Anonymous asked: hey PK, what if someone tags art theyve reblogged of their favourite character as "trash"? like, it's just something they call them, like "look at this trash baby" or "i hate this asshole" even though they love them. quite a few of my friends do it, besides loving the character, and i don't know whether it's okay or bad?

kecrambles:

it’s a really shitty practice that’s started up here and i personally consider it bad - mostly because people do it without thinking on others’ art, and it may upset the artist to see those sort of tags if they genuinely love the character, you know? so even if you’re like ‘well i mean i love the character which is why it’s something i call them’ it’s not really appropriate to do in the extension of the artist’s vision on their artwork. it’s similar to the idea of like, if you have a friend and you guys call each other “asshole shitass” or “whore” or whatever and it’s totally fine between you two and it means nothing, but then going and saying those things to a stranger… it’s not fun to hear from a stranger, much the same as seeing tags like that isn’t fun to see from a stranger on artwork you drew of a character you love

so while to you guys it may be innocuous, you should take into consideration that everyone is different and you may end up upsetting people in the process, so maybe you should find a different way to express that unless it’s not on someone else’s art (for instance a post on your own blog about it is totally fine, or if the artist themselves does it too that’s also fine)

fucking done with your shit, 80’s anime
