A New Identity
I can only imagine all the thoughts that ran through her mind when turning into Nightmare Moon.
It was an awful experience.
Imagine a voice whispering to you in much the same way your conscience speaks to you, only this voice speaks of all your worst fears.
“They all hate you.”
“They’re afraid of you.”
“You’re a monster”
“Your sister is the only one they love.”
“You are worthless.”
Falling deeper into despair it transforms you by whispering darker thoughts.
“You should be queen.”
“You should be the one to rule.”
“They want to fear you? Give them something to be afraid of.”
Hey guys. Apologies for the very long post, but I feel as if this needs to be said.
I’m sure everyone remembers that really awesome, amazingly well made Jake English cosplay that was circulating around for a while? Their url is whatevachild.
These are some of the answered asks on their page. I noticed that some people were receiving really rude answers, and I felt as if I should say something. This cosplayer believes that if you aren’t perfect, then you’re a shitty cosplayer.
The very last two pictures are the responses I received to my asks to them. I honestly respected them as a cosplayer, and strived to make my cosplays as well as them one day. Now, I know I’m no professional, and I’m not some type of cosplay god, but I put a LOT of work into my cosplays. I spend a lot of money and time on them….but APPARENTLY, I will never be able to be as good as this person. I simply tried to be polite and let them know that maybe they should be a little less rude towards maybe not-so-amazing cosplayers, and this was the answer I got.
My point is, you can be an amazing cosplayer, and you can have your opinions, but there’s no need to make other people feel like shit because of a damn hobby. Feel free to take cosplay as seriously as you wish, but once you become a prick towards other people because their cosplay doesn’t live up to your own expectations, you become a pretty awful cosplayer.
Can I get a single boost please, this is the kind of shit I just can’t fucking stand for this is making me seethe with anger. How can any fucking human being ever be this fucking ignorant, I mean seriously guys how can we, as a fandom stand for this shit. I really do not like to be over dramatic it posts but this is just too far. Please just do me this one favor and just SIGNAL BOOST
Wow he must be so fucking talented he bought shit at a store and ironed on a symbol on a t-shirt and HAPPENS to be a gangly effeminate boy he must be the worlds best cosplayer
Oh and looks like he also cosplayed Cronus, Ed from cowboy Bebop, Kanaya, did some of that god damn fawn make up…WOW HE REALLY IS THE BEST COSPLAYER
I’m not the best cosplayer. But If you’re gonna talk like your a big fucking deal lets see you cosplay something challenging. And for someone who rags on horns your fucking cronus horns look like Ass.
Try harder you bastard. Your 19 year old baby I’M SO HOMO UGU ass can kindly shove your chainsaw up it ( lovin the teeth on that by the way. They don’t look like construction paper at all).I think I’m going to be sick
I don’t read homestuck but I’m pretty sure no one looks like that. In fact I’m 97% sure homestuck people are tiny paper white sprites with no arms. So that being said his cosplay isn’t perfect. It might be homestuck INSPIRED but it’s not perfect. Kid’s a douche.
does england exist to make every other country look stupid
all but one
yea, america can do it by itself
how weird is it to have pets though like a random animal just lives in your house and you can’t communicate with it but you both just accept it
NO ONE GETS REJECTED LIKE GASTON
I like how he is sad, and then he looks at how big his muscles are and then he is happy again
this has been a PSA
Jesus fucking christ
This is exactly the kind of shit I was talking about. I had a rant some weeks ago about people ‘hiding’ comments in their tags, and the response was mainly two things: Either people did it just because they preferred it that way for whatever reason (which in the end is really their business), or this, which is something that until I made that post I had no idea about. I didn’t know this shit was a thing. I had no idea people actually posted shit like this, because it just seems so fucking unreal.
This is bullshit, and the person who posted this is bullshit by extension.
This is some fucked up elitist mentality that only some thoughts are “worthy” of being made. That if your response doesn’t live up to their standards then why the fuck are you posting it? Keep your mouth shut because what you have to say isn’t worth hearing! This of course is further ingrained by the use of excessive caps and emoticons in the original post suggesting that anyone who makes a response like that is a child or an idiot, because there’s no faster or lazier way to discredit the other side than to imitate them with fevered, emoticon-littered writing.
Well I say fuck that. I produce my own content (and I don’t mean compiling TV gifsets) and I want to see everything everyone has to say. Even if it’s just AAAA THIS SCARED ME or WOWOWOW THIS IS SUPER CUUUUTE WOW, seeing that kind of response means a lot to me. It means I evoked that kind of response. That’s very flattering! And for people to want to censor others because they think their thoughts aren’t important or worthwhile enough to be read, frankly, that’s disgusting. No one should be pressured into feeling like they have to shut up especially on a subject and medium like motherfucking Tumblr. It’s like telling someone “GET OFF MY POST”.
And I mean let’s think practically about this, too: It’s not like every time someone reblogs your post AND ADDS TEXT a man comes to your door and sits you down and reads it out loud off a telegram. What happens is that the little list that shows “so and so reblogged your post” has one additional line of text on it saying “AND ADDED: [COMMENT YOU DON’T THINK WAS WORTH YOUR TIME]”. I would say it takes one extra second to scroll past but the amount of time spent scrolling that additional line is so insignificant I couldn’t even measure it. Most people who address this spend way more time complaining about it than they ever would spend being inconvenienced by having to read what people thought of their post (god forbid)
So in summation this whole toxic, bullshit mentality of “Hey plebeians who have the privilege of looking at my stuff! Here’s how you are and are not allowed to respond to it!” is awful and so arrogant I almost didn’t believe it was real
If you want to sort of stash your thoughts away in tags, I can’t force you not to by any means
But you should never feel like you have to hide your thoughts because they’re not ‘good enough’.
Especially not here.
All in all Tumblr is a fun site, but people are actually DISCOURAGING others voicing their opinions and comments. DeviantART is slowly dying, and it’s pretty bad, because it’s one of the few sites left where you can communicate with words, instead of reactions gifs and Tumblr memes. I’ve seen people reblog things with their comments and anons sending messages to their ask-blogs akin to “Wow, why are you commenting everything you reblog, that is so annoying.” Why would you do that? This might be an interactive shiny picturebook to some people, and there’s nothing wrong with that, but especially artists really appreciate reblogs with comments. Those pictures you like so much COME FROM SOMEWHERE, you know. By all means, voiceless reblogs are nice too because they give you exposure, but if someone has the time to say something nice, then oh my god, don’t diss them because of that. This is a really terrible attitude to have.
I’ve considered making a reblog-blog just for original content and commenting on it, and stuff like this makes me want to do it more, just to spite people who are encouraging an internet culture where everything must be just scrolled past as fast as possible, without stopping to appreciate it.
I AM SO HAPPY, THANK YOU.
Reblogging because I’VE BEEN GRUMPYGROANING ABOUT THIS VERY THING WITH MY FRIEND FOR AGES. About how nobody seems to comment on anything anymore and just hides everything in tags, making artists have to check every single fucking reblog separately to see if there’s EVEN A TINY BIT OF FEEDBACK. Most of the time there isn’t any. IT’S REALLY RIDICULOUS AND IT BLOWS???? BECAUSE ARTISTS LIKE ME FUCKING LIVE OFF FEEDBACK. IT’S IMPORTANT TO THEM.
Even “dumb” comments like “WOW CUTE” take me and probably many others A LONG WAY.
Of course even though this may have come off sounding like that, the stuff I’m writing here isn’t to be accusatory towards people who choose not to comment. YOU ARE EXTREMELY FREE TO NOT COMMENT IF YOU DON’T WANT TO. Especially since I am also a shy butt who has trouble replying to things people write me because I never know what to reply and I become anxious as hell and bleughfb
THIS WHOLE THING IS DIRECTED AT PEOPLE WHO PURPOSEFULLY DISCOURAGE PEOPLE FROM COMMENTING. THAT’S GROSS AS HELL and i will pee in your eye if you do thatsklnvslk
ok sorry for being an asshole BUT THIS WHOLE THING HAS BEEN BUGGING ME FOREVER AND THE OP POST PISSED ME OFF CONSIDERABLY, I CAN’T LIE. Ugh.
Yes, this, thank you so much.
This has also made me reconsider whether I should break the habit and comment more on posts instead of the tags from now on. Cus it’s funny how I prefer to comment on tags not due to shyness but rather I like the way texts look in tagged format (lol???) man i’m weird as fuck…but anyhow, it’s time to change that, especially when it comes to reblogging from the source just so it would benefit OP a lot more.
Honestly though this OP’s post feels like the Tumblr version of fascist propaganda lol, that’s some terrifying shit yo
I thought tags were just how you were supposed to find things? I mean I flail a little in them too but I use them mainly as a way to find things on my blog or to find things on tumblr. And I don’t mind people putting their thoughts into the tags as well but I’m pretty sure this white space here is for typing whatever you will, just saying.
THANK YOU EVERYONE I LOVE YOU ALL I’M GONNA GIVE YOU ALL A HUG
yup yup look at how empty dA is nowadays and tumblr’s atmosphere already feels dead as it is!!!!
when an artist works hard on something of course they fuckin want feedback
Stuff like this has contributed to me not wanting to add comments to things I reblog. I know its stupid but I just have felt like people would be annoyed like in this post, but maybe I should’t care about what these people say anyway. Thanks a lot for helping me see that.
Elizabeth Báthory is one of the most prolific serial killers in all of history.
She was born into nobility and was highly educated but also very vain.
One day, infuriated, Elizabeth struck one of her servant girls so hard that some blood dripped from her face onto Elizabeth’s hand and she immediately thought that her skin took on a glowing freshness of her young maid.
Elizabeth believed she had found the secret of eternal youth. After this, women were abducted and hung upside down, while they were still alive and their throats were slit to prepare Elizabeth’s bath.
The Countess of Transylvania and four collaborators were accused of torturing and killing hundreds of girls, with one witness attributing to them over 650 victims, though the number for which they were convicted was 80. Elizabeth herself was neither tried nor convicted.
Can I just time in here and say a few things, since half of what is written here is straight from the wikipedia page, which don’t get me wrong —it’s accurate— but extremely underwhelming.
“Elizabeth” Erzebet Bathory was so much more than some vain bitch who killed over 650 women, she was a vain bitch who could speak and write more than two languages, in a time where a woman writing one was unheard of. She was raised mostly by her very infamous openly bisexual aunt, and was a torturer and a murderer before she was 14 (rumored).
This woman was the person who made the villagers quake in both fear and revelation, that the courts refused to take action against when young girls started dissapearing, when bodies started being found. She OWNED the country, her family was richer then even the Lords presiding over it, she had all the say.
Her and her ‘accomplices” (which by the way, they were extremely trusted, and unlike her, they were executed without mercy when the truth came out), would gather village children who their parents practically threw their way in hopes of a better future, although the children would never live again. She didn’t only hang them, she caged them, used iron maidens, spears, so many different objects. And the whole ‘bathing in blood’ thing, although is technically can be true, that and the whole striking her maid is all exagerrated to add to the story. Her and her husband got off to killing, literally, they liked the screams. If she bathed in blood, it wasn’t to be younger, it was to enjoy their life ending. Not to say she wasn’t vain, but for good reason. She was considered the most beautiful woman in Hungary for all of her days.
And she technically was tried, although as I said before she practically owned the country, they couldn’t actually kill her. But she had killed another young girl of noble blood, and that couldn’t just be set aside. So instead of execution, they sentenced her to house arrest for the rest of her days, unable to punish her for all the women she had killed.
Also, she had three children, and regardless of her murderous ways it was said that she had been a wonderful, loving mother. Strange how the ‘vain blood mistress’ can be more than just, isn’t it?
I could go on and on about this woman, I’ve read and watched basically everything pertaining to her due to reports and essays that I wrote when I was younger, and even though she was a horrifying murderer, she deserves a bit more than ‘blood bitch’.
PLEASE READ I’M BEGGING YOU GUYS TO HELP ME.
STOP SCROLLING :’(
This is my best friend, Billy. I’ve known him basically since I was born. Our parents were friends, and it was always the joke between our families that we were going to get married, since my parents happened to have a girl and his a guy, at the same time. He means a lot to me, even though he lives thousands of miles away from me right now. The important thing though, is that he’s gone missing. He is a danger to himself, suffering from depression and extensive drug use in the past year. He was going through rehabilitation, but now he’s missing. He’s disappeared. The last he was seen was in Juno Beach, Florida. This is off of northern Palm Beach County. He’s been missing since Sunday afternoon, over forty hours. The U.S. Coast Guard searched for him throughout Monday night, and they’re unsure that the search will continue any longer. He was last seen wearing a pair of green shorts. It’s uncertain whether he has gone missing deliberately, or the coast was too rough. This is one hundred percent serious and I’m terrified. If anybody in or near Palm Beach County has seen or heard from him, please please please contact his mother at (321) 750-3469. This is so serious, and only serious calls are wanted. Please help find my best friend. I’m lost without him.
Society as a kid: Be whatever you want! Follow your dreams! Nothing is impossible! The sky is the limit!
Society as you get older: That’s not realistic. You’ll never make money that way. Not in this economy. Good luck being homeless.
