did you ever become friends with someone so beautiful? and then they started telling you about the douchebags in their lives that did horrible things to them, like cheat and lie. and the only thing running through your mind is “who would ever want to hurt someone like you?”
Ok so I’ve been quiet about this for some time now, and I thought I should break that silence and make this public. (Hey other people are posting art PSA’s, this ain’t new)
We are Artists, We are many
Being a artist on Tumblr alone isnt easy. There are millions of other people doing the exact same thing you’re doing. Amongst all of them you can be overlooked so easily. Now I am familiar with all those PSAs about not worrying about being popular and loving your own art. Thats all well and good, no ones debating that. But we artist want to share our art with the world. We want to show everyone what we can do.
When we receive praise and love for our work, thats the best feeling in the world for us. We all have friends, fellow artists or not, that support us. But here on Tumblr, your art might not get pushed out into the crowd. For myself as an example, I get a 1 reblog for every 10 likes on something. And this is only including when I originally post it. When art post is liked, no one else sees it. Likes stay hidden and don’t appear on others dashes. (And yes, some blog themes do show likes, this I am aware)
Likes are good, but Reblogs do a lot more
When someone reblogs your art, a whole new set of people get to see it. Most of them are people who have never seen your stuff before. For example, whenever Carbines Official WIldstar Tumblr reblogs my Wildstar art, I get bombarded with likes, reblogs even follows! But before that, when I post it in the first place, not much happens. Dont get me wrong, I’m grateful I get anything, but feedback and notoriety is what keeps an artist like me going, and many others as well. Now I may understand that sometimes something someone draws isn’t your cup of tea, that’s alright! But even if you show a little interest, a reblog does a world of difference.
Support your friends, Support those who care
I know this is all sounding a little preachy, but it’s something I needed to get off my chest. There are no complaints, there are no orders, just a call out from all us artists. From the big and professional, to the small and unseen. We all want to share our art with the world, and it can all begin with a reblog.
let’s play Did I Always Have That Personality Trait Or Did I Absorb It From A Character?
Bonus round: wait one fucking second isn’t that something my friend says and now I’m saying it too
and then there’s my favorite: Did I Get That From My Friend Or Did They Get It From Me?
So my entire family and I have taken a New England trip to Boston, and for the last day we’ve been in Portland, Maine. The primary reasons for this visit was to tour a college in Boston and then my dad had to go to a business meeting in Portland. But the first day we found out Boston Comicon was happening and we had an extra day before we left to go home? So we’re going today (as in today Saturday)
I don’t have many followers or really know anyone at all but if anyone is gonna be there it’d be really cool to meet people?
I’ll probably be carrying around a bag with teeth on it (it’s cool okay) and there’s a pic of me on the first page of my blog. I just really think it’d be neat to talk to people?
Especially if there are any In the Flesh fans and HTTYD fans because I don’t have any friend within the fandom or a whole lot of interaction an yada yada
BOSTON COMICON if you’re there you should talk to me because I think it’d be fun
This shit better work

REBLOGGING AGAIN
So reading all these in the flesh fics and such, warming up fics especially, made me kinda wondering about how the wounds on both simon and Kieren would heal. Amy too, but mainly the boys seeing as how they have like, gashes. But mainly it’s simon I’m thinking about because in a lot of fics where he warms up it doesn’t really discuss his scar healing or anything like that in detail. Mostly in all those stories it’s some sort of light and floaty feeling when their hearts start beating and they start feeling things. But… I have personally had my entire back sliced open, from neck to tailbone, and that shit fucking hurt like the heat of a thousand dying suns. And this was a surgical incision, in the flashbacks Simons back was RAKED with scalpels, it’s not a clean cut. Can you imagine how horrifying painful it would be when it heals? Especially the risk for infection and the pain of having to properly medicate and dress a wound of that magnitude, from my own experience I can tell you that it’s a huge ordeal. And that kind of pain requires some hard core medication. I was on oxicotin(sp?) narcotics every few hours for a little over four days, and I started experiencing withdrawal symptoms after the first day of a lowered dose. And simon is a declared addict, the only thing that ended his drug addiction was his subsequent death. How the hell would be be able to deal with being put on such strong pain medication? He can’t be denied, no one in their right minds would believe someone could deal with this level of pain on just Advil and a strong wooden spoon. And if they did give it to him his withdrawal symptoms would probably be absolutely horrendous, even if the pds bodies essentially started back up as a blank slate with no prior conditions like drug addiction or leukemia present physically the mental components of his addiction would still be there wouldn’t it? It would be incredibly easy to slide right back into that pit. Even not talking about Simon, Kieren DIED from his wounds because he BLED OUT. I’ve read one fic that addressed this, but when his blood starts pumping again he still has two giant slits on some major arteries. It’s probably covered some by the shoddy stitching he probably got for his funeral or at the treatment center but it doubt they were medical grade seeing as how they were only closing them for aesthetic purposes at the time. But even the stuff that has no doubt gunked up around it could stop it for very long if his blood started flowing. What if he was sleeping when it happened? Same with simon on this as well, there are a lot of important things no doubt surrounding the back in terms of veins and such, and Halpern and Weston were just scraping away. No doubt some things were severed? And they sure as hell didn’t care enough to put it back, they probably only had it rudimentary stitched together so his skin wouldn’t catch or so black ooze wouldn’t be as big of a problem. I don’t know, I kinda think about this a lot, especially the back thing. Since I know how sliced backs feel and you don’t just tiptoe through the daisies when you get hit with the pain of that for the first time.
