He’s kiinda cute but not Go-All-Lapcat-Cute, Toralei plsssssssssssss lol
But they’re ok
I like a scenario were they’re all friends and hang out
I’m hurting all over
In addition to briar appreciation month/week we should dedicate a month/week to cedar too :))
Her Birthday is June 28th so we can do June - July 28th (or May - June 28th) for her in the way that Briar things are planned. Should we simply give her October of this year to make up for it this time and simply put it back in place for 2015?
Can we please

super social party girl and her stiff loner gf
These days, whenever some loser chants that “all headcanons are free game” nonsense, I automatically recall this incident:
Like, just don’t bother covering up what you’re really after because we all know what this is really about.
nothing’s easy is it
Back when I asked for EAH doodle requests someone gave me Cerise and a girl of my choice so here’s this.
Right, I was gonna write this anyway, but now I have a nice quote to start and someone to annoy. (Also, dude, it’s not “too early”. You’re just too late. Shit went down hours ago.)
To belatedly address the person I just started say “No.” to and the people who "totes understand" the call for more diversity but want that call to be made differently:
This may come as a surprise. but it requires emotional energy to deal with the mere fact you are told you don’t deserve to see yourself anywhere but in the mirror and to be told your history does not include you. It requires bravery to respond to that kind of attacks. No matter the content of the response, its creation requires emotional control and time. And then there’s the mental preparation for whatever may come next.
As noted a few hours ago, the power lies with racists. All you have to say is that there were no POC in Europe pre-1900 and you spew some seven lies and wrongs you think are truth all at once. A truth that, coincidentally, is very convenient to you. It’s a huge power to be able to get out this much nonsense in less than ten words and be taken seriously with it. That power, when related to race, has a name: racism.
It’s minimal effort to hurt and dehumanize so many at once, but those who respond are “lazy” for not writing out tailor-made paragraph after paragraph as to why that shit is hurtful and dehumanizing and incorrect - information that not only requires a lot of background information to show the structures at play, but also is only a google click away elsewhere on the internet because, again, this shit is structural and EAH/the EAH fandom is by far not the first to deal with it. But of course you whiny scum aren’t lazy for refusing to question yourself and look up shit for yourself. Neah, victims just need to get their shit together and behave, or else whatever thrown at them in the first place becomes retroactively justified.
And, you know, maybe I, at least, would write you those paragraphs. But the thing is, you tell victims to educate (for fucking free), but you never tell yourself or other attackers to listen. Do you know how it feels to give it a go and invest in getting sources and writing that reply you think will get the message through, only to be answered with:
"Lol, that’s a lot of text. I’ve skimmed through it and-"
"Right, clearly you have your vision and I have mine. Lets agree to disagree."
"Whatever you say, professor."
Or better yet, find out the person has you blocked? For the very thing they’ve just said they wanted from you or others have said you owed them? You will cry about the humanity of blatant racists and the feelings behind their URL, but when it comes to the victims, we’re little more than automatons with an attitude problem.
And this one’s specifically to the people who supposedly are pro-diversity but only participate to tell victims to be nicer: YOU ARE FULLER OF SHIT THAN A CLOGGED TOILET AFTER A SURPRISE LAXATIVE BBQ FOR 30. You say you understand the need and call for diversity. You say you understand the frustration that it’s being denied. You say there’s better ways to talk with other fans about it than what we are doing. So let me ask you:
Why aren’t you showing how it’s done? Why aren’t you, who do not suffer the hurt already, out to talk with shits making racist posts? To much effort, perhaps?
As they say in my country, “The best helmsmen stand on shore.”
So at some point, I started replying with questions. Questions I’ll never have answers too because what I guess is a coinciding of “answering would reveal I’m only in to protect racists”, “I’m not gonna bark on command - that’s only for those people to do”, and “it’s too difficult”. And I started replying with “No.” because the accusations made no sense and I was already engaging well-packaged lies as a starter truth on my own terms with other users. You want it fair and square? Then start with carrying your own weight.
And, yes, the art attacks were warranted. Not only did the blatant racism confirm the whitewashing and samefacing are 1000% intentional, but literally everyone in fandom knows what power comes with being an artist with decent skill and high output. Part of your choice to defend him is because you are more than willing to let him hurt people as long as he keeps making pretty pictures. Once again, it’s all about what’s convenient for you, not what’s necessary for others.
The only thing about this whole ordeal that has me smiling is that so many took a stand against the racism and shared their stories. I’ve seen fandoms in which fighting back was/is impossible, so I definitely want to have it known that I feel better at and am grateful for every contribution in favor of improved racial diversity in EAH and against whitewashed history and tone-policing bullshit. And I think I am not alone in that, so keep that in mind if the thing ate you. You did good.
