#okay so one reason i love this is clint’s little head tilts#because yes precious and adorable#but also it’s a fairly common habit for people with hearing problems#you kind of try to get a slightly better angle without being obvious about it#so now knowing what we know of fraction’s take on clint’s hearing loss#knowing that he was deafened as a child and then had some degree of hearing restored#but not 100% hence his difficulty with foreign languages sometimes#it makes perfect sense that he’s like ‘uh what is this my ears or your accent’ (x)
“You won’t allow me to go to school.
I won’t become a doctor.
One day you will be sick.”
Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl
This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).
things i want more of: ladies being rad as hell in space
"come sit with us," star trek fans say to their star wars brethren, whilst we all gather for warmth around the flaming pile of shit that is the star wars vii casting.
if anything can bring trek and wars fans together, it’s the absolute messes that are the new generation of movies
It’s almost like everyone hates what JJ Abrams does to beloved franchises. I mean com’on, did you see Mission Impossible 3?
"There’s only one female in the new cast!!" Star Wars fans cry out in disbelief and anguish. Slowly the Star Trek fans turn around, their faces ashen…haunted..
"We know", they chant together in perfect harmony. "We know..”
They take the Star Wars fans in a tight embrace, whose forms are wracked with hiccuping sobs. The Star Trek fans shush them, and softly start to hum the Original Series theme song.
They huddle together for warmth, and wait for the lens flares to descend.
SEVEN OF WANDS - BATTLE OF STREX
“After achieving success, it will be necessary to fight to stay on top. There is no room for complacency, but there is need for perseverance. The subject’s dominating position helps assure their ultimate victory, but only if they continue to make their best efforts.”
While the 5 of Wands symbolizes conflict and competition, and the 6 of Wands symbolizes victory, then the 7 of Wands symbolizes the continued struggle to keep going. During the battle against Strex, the recapturing of the radio station indicated a shift in tide during the battle, but a hard fight had to be done in order to fully oust Strex from the town.
I originally had a design much more similar to some of my earlier sketches depicting the battle against Strex, since I really loved the stark imagery in the scene. However, with a constantly evolving design for Erikas, and my frustration at drawing a crowd scene (not to mention the composition was so boring) I went for a much closer, abstract, and visceral depiction of the conflict. I really like how this turned out. Feels very Game of Thrones-esque with the juxtaposition of blood and feathers.
Gosh I’m super cute when I’m drunk
