My Cecil (+Carlos) Swap piece for les-etoiles-de-la-boxe.
Carlos is just trying to work (writing lab reports in green crayon, as you do), but Cecil can be very… distracting.
Yeah, they’re playing footsie. I had to show off Carlos’ Converse somehow - and Cecil got fab white ankle boots out of it!

Weird Al” Yankovic - Word Crimes
This song and its video speak deeply to my soul.
Also, if you weren’t aware before, Weird Al is my patronus.
So I’m planning on going to my very first con (Anime Boston ‘15 yo), which means I should start saving now while I’m working full-time/before I head back to school. The theme is Kaiju vs Mecha, so naturally there’s already a movement to get ALL THE GUNDAM COSPLAYERS in on this.
And then I found this.
IT’S A SIGN. (Once I figure out how to pink bangs, of course, but.)
So, how ‘bout it? Let’s represent! >)
Yes, I knowww online registration doesn’t start until September. But they’ve been doing some in-person reg at events already? And idk how long people need to put cosplay together? SCREW IT, I’M EXCITED.
Did you mean: Pegasus J Crawford
Imagine your OTP at the altar of a church, about to get married. Just as they’re about to kiss, Person A wakes up in bed, sobbing and staring at the empty space beside them. In reality, Person B died years ago.
My 7 year old son was shot down by his 1st grade teacher
The american public education system in a nutshell tho
My third grade teacher actually had a conversation with my mom that I was reading to well and told her to stop having me read at home
My first grade teacher said that it was problematic that I was reading ahead of the rest of the kids in my grade and asked my parents to stop letting me read Harry Potter.
My fourth grade teacher thought it was wrong for my dad to be teaching me complex math because it fascinated me.
My elementary school music teacher hated the way my piano teacher taught me, and how I was more advanced than many of her students, and so told me, in front of my peers and my mother, that I was not good enough to participate in the state solo festival. She would not give me the form. We had to procure it from the district instead. She also hated how I excelled at reading and playing music for the recorder, and so she refused to give me my “belts” (colored beads to signify our level) and humiliated me in front of the class repeatedly.
My eighth grade algebra teacher used to fail me on take home tests because I didn’t solve problems exactly the way she showed us in class; I used methods that we had learned for other types of problems that also applied to these. She took points off my tests because I didn’t bring a calculator even though I got 100% without it, because I was able to do it by hand. I had to call my father, who is an engineer, down to the school to shout her down and give me back my A in the class.
My 10th grade Spanish teacher yelled at me in front of the class numerous times because she didn’t like the way I took notes; she thought that since I didn’t write every word off the slide, I wasn’t getting it all down. I had to explain to her that people who have taken advanced courses, like AP or IB classes, know that in a fast-paced learning environment you need to take quick shorthand notes that contain the necessary information rather than wasting time writing every word. She almost gave me detention.
My 11th grade English teacher gave me a poor mark on my first short essay because she believed that I was looking up unnecessarily complex words in a thesaurus to try and get better marks. The phrases in question: “laced with expletives” and “bombarded”. She wouldn’t hear any defense from me.
My 11th grade history teacher failed me on an essay about the 1950s because I misread the prompt. Except the prompt wasn’t words; it was a political cartoon. One of the figures was clearly president Eisenhower, but the other I couldn’t place. My teacher would not tell us who it was. I labelled him as the governor of Little Rock Arkansas during the integration period, and wrote an essay about that subject. My teacher said that no, it was Joseph McCarthy, and that there was a small picture of the man in our textbook and therefore I should have recognized him instantly. Half the class, apparently, did not.
The American school system is not here to educate us or to encourage us to learn; it’s here to keep us in line and silent. It’s here to keep us from deviating and being our own people and forming our own ideas. Don’t let it win.

♫Hello, my name is Elder JJ, and I would like to share with you this most amazing fact♪
Write one sentence about the darkest point of your life, the worst thing you have ever experienced.
Write the second sentence about how you survived.
Write the last sentence about how what it taught you.
This can either be answered by you, personally, or by your characters.
This is an inspired prompt, and I’m honestly looking forward to the replies. Either tag your response with ‘thewritershelpers’ or submit it to us and I’ll publish them.
I might even do this one, too.
When I was six, my mother had a mental breakdown.
I learned to do my own laundry; make toasted cheese and hot dogs; and identify, locate, and take my own medication.
When you can’t get out of bed and you have a child, ask for help: that is what I learned.
I questioned and explored my sexual orientation as a young teen; for my troubles, I had my bedroom ransacked and computer taken.
I lied for shame and for survival; I came out to my friends, just so someone would know, but begged them to keep silent; I did assignments exclusively at school, or late, or not at all; I cherished my few glimpses of privacy, but not without looking over my shoulder; I kept my mouth shut, just in case I was being listened in on; I stopped talking back about nearly anything at all.
I learned that freedom and privacy are expensive privileges; that incident was the slammed closet door, and my lifelong disordered, self-loathing anxiety the deadbolt lock.
Tumblr, how did you miss this?
BATWOMAN #25 confirms that the Kanes of Kate Kane’s family and the Kanes which comprise Bruce Wayne’s maternal lineage are one and the same.
Jacob Kane, Batwoman’s father, is Jewish.
Therefore, Martha Wayne (nee Kane) is Jewish.
According to Judaic law, if your mother is Jewish, that makes you Jewish.
What we have here… is confirmation.
THAT BATMAN IS JEWISH.
