i know we all like to hate on the tumblr radar but im just so jazzed about this cube look at it go
Wtf did I just read
holy fuck balls what
I’ve been playing with shiny value thing lately and I got plenty of shiny pokemon buuuuuuut I only wanted to get a croagunk and froakie so I’m giving away the rest of them :P And also when I have too many shinies their value drops… >_< + Christmas is coming + I don’t have time to make art so I’m doing a giveaway to compensate the fact that I won’t post anything new soon C’:
So I have 9 pokemon in this giveaway (no art for diglett because I got it today):
- 3 eevee (two male and one female - only one of them (male one) can have its name changed) (they have 4/5 IVs - female is almost flawless)
- froakie (male, 3 IVs, nickname - yes)
- mienfoo (female 4 IVs nickname - no)
- zubat (female 4 IVs nickname - yes)
- murkrow (female 3 IVs nickname - yes)
- diglett (male 2 IVs nickname - yes)
- and ralts (male 5 IVs nickname - no)
I’m not going to come up with my own rules, I’m doing this giveaway the same way as everyone:
- Reblog/like this post as many times as you want
- I’m going to pick 8 winners on 25th of December (using random number generator, so don’t spam my askbox with stuff like ‘pick me because I don’t have a shiny yet’), the first place will get two shiny pokemon and the next places will be able to pick one shiny, last place will get what’s left (diglett? :P )
- the winners will have 10 days to reply to me after I sent them a message
- Perhaps I could come up with more rules but it’s almost 1 a.m. here so my brain doesn’t want to work the way it supposed to….zzz
P.S. All of this shinies are 100% legit, they were bred by me and hatched by person with matching sv or given to me by a person who had an egg with my sv C:
Strength is being able to crush a tomato.
Dexterity is being able to dodge a tomato.
Constitution is being able to eat a bad tomato.
Intelligence is knowing a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is knowing not to put a tomato in a fruit salad.
Charisma is being able to sell a tomato based fruit salad.
This is what happens when your friend reminds you about audio editing. I ended up lowering the pitch on Let It Go from the new Frozen movie. And I gotta say, it’s really nice. Have yourself a listen and see what I mean.
And of course I had to draw a quick genderbend for this
oh man, I’m in love with this
Holy fuckity fuck

This is an amazing collection. I think what excites me so much about it, apart from the PDAs which indicate these are clearly romantic relationships and not just friendships, is the women of colour who are included. No 2 is even an inter-racial couple!
To add to this relationships such as these were able to be visible because during this era women were considered sex-less, that is that they did not have sex, so they could only have innocently amorous relationships with other women. In addition, in the late Victorian/early Edwardian era there was a large lesbian subculture where women had openly butch/femme relationships where one partner would often pass as a male and would accompany the other woman in public and be her escort to events and the like. Within that culture were femme/femme relationships, and sometimes butch/butch relationships. This practice was surprisingly popular among the higher class, where it was seen as entertainment for the women involved by the outside world. This culture was also accompanied by theatrical instances of cross-dressing lesbians who often became very famous. On the more extreme side of the culture were groups of high class women who had large balls that essentially would boil down to lavish orgies.
For the middle class, however, it was very easy for women to be in such relationships with little questioning as women were encouraged to live together as living with a male who was not family was immoral, and those who chose to be ‘spinsters’ often lived with a close friend. Often times in these situations the women would be in a relationship, where in some cases one partner would cross-dress though that was not always the case. When women lived together, it was rarely seen as questionable if the two became very close, and women were encouraged to have these sorts of relationships.
also note that the inception of lesbian-directed hate was based in the fact that women who were well-educated often lived together and many forewent heterosexual relationships in favor of academic pursuits, living with a close friend (and occasionally romantic partner) because women made ridiculously low wages and could not afford to live by themselves.
heterosexual, upper class men decided they couldn’t have independent, well-educated women becoming the norm and possibly threatening their hold on political power, so they began demonizing close relationships between women, including relationships between siblings as immoral. this was immediately believed with no questions, and parents began denying their children education opportunities and female friendships.
this served three purposes: 1) keeping women from accessing education and keeping them from scientific and mathematical fields where they could make a difference, and 2) isolating women so they would not band together to overthrow patriarchy or object to low wages, abuse, and discrimination, and 3) enforce the social spheres that were being broken by women working and being educated.
of course, this is hardly true for poor women, immigrant women, and women of color (or women within those intersections), who probably didn’t have access to education. they definitely proved the idea that education would cause lesbianism wrong, though, as there were tons of queer relationships between poor women, immigrant women, and women of color, who were often exempt from white upper-class morality.
in fact, some of the first real queer acceptance movement and queer community building happened in harlem in the 1920s, which acknowledged queer people and tolerated their gender and sexual “transgressions.”
That tuxedo dress in picture 2 is pretty much what I want to wear to my wedding ceremony. <3
biggest plot twist ever..
And this is what happens when a masterfully crafted katana collides with a masterfully crafted longsword.
Suck it, katana
And that is what happens when a masterfully crafted scalpel collides with a masterfully crafted guillotine.
Does nobody understand that longswords and katanas are two different kinds of tool?Longswords are essentially sharpened fucksticks designed to destroy the shit out of anything resembling armor that comes their way. They shatter bone, jelly flesh, and essentially fuck people up by sheer inexorable force of being a goddamn sharp steel bar.
Katanas don’t do that.They’re not meant to withstand collision with armor or a brick wall or a charging fully outfitted warhorsebecause the circumstances of its development didn’t call for that. It’s a precision instrument. It’s designed to be lightweight, outmaneuver, and find weak spots, not go barreling into people hack-n-slashing your way to victory. It’s a specialized tool.
In a sense this reflects a core difference between cultures; katanas are a shitton of work and preparation to make the execution as efficient and streamlined as possible, while longswords are more durably and simply made in response to a climate that would require a soldier to be a one-man battering ram in battle.
You slam any blade into any other blade and one of them is at least going to get chipped, because you’re NOT SUPPOSED TO FUCKING DO THAT.
Medieval European / Japanese sword-fighting manuals didn’t have “Now Clang the Swords Together and Totally Ruin Them For No Good Reason Whatsoever” sections. That sword-clanging crap is from movies because you want to show a 2 minute dancey sword-fight and have to do something during that time, because in real sword fights it’s either over in 25 seconds with one guy on the ground, dead, or it goes on for 4 hours as two guys in armor wear themselves out, slamming the broad sides of the sword against the armor.
Swords aren’t lightsabers.
This is like proving a Volkswagen Beetle is a “crap car” by running it into a bridge pylon at 85 mph. It’s a pointless demonstration, because you’re not supposed to do that.
Neither one of these weapons was invented to cut another sword in half, Both were invented to cut a GUY in half. In slightly different ways, but still.
The beauty of the katana is that Japanese smiths managed to refine enough shitty ore from their shitty, tiny ore deposits to make decent swords. That’s why Japanese armor is not made of metal, people. It’s all about resources.
