Let’s be 100% real here Homura would seriously benefit from a therapist
one of the things I like about the MSY (the magical girl union from TtS) is that
A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.
High in the upper airs, beyond the clouds that paint the welkin and the firmament, at the heart of ten thousand crystal palaces and myriad celestial courts, there is the SKY THRONE. Who sits upon the SKY THRONE reigns over sun and wind and earth by her decree, speaking the seasons by fiat. It is claimed by four queens, sisters and lovers and nemeses, and there names are thus[…]
Chien-Shiung Wu: The First Lady of Physics
This is what the ‘New York Post’ wrote about Chien-Shiung Wu: ‘This small, modest woman was powerful enough to do what armies can never accomplish: she helped destroy a law of nature. And laws of nature, by their very definition, should be constant, continuous, immutable, and indestructible.’ Which law of nature was the ‘New York Post’ talking about? And who was this brave soul who dared smash such laws?

The Magician and the Snake: Mike and Katie Mignola (2003).
In honor of the Hallow E’en, he’s some Mike Mignola for you all. Well, in truth, the story was by his daughter, Katie. She won an Eisner for Best Short Story for it, too, making her by far the youngest recipient of the award. Runs in the family, it seems. Here’s an interview with the then-7-year-old on the Dark Horse website/blog:
"I don’t remember much about how I came up with the story other than that I painted a picture of a snake yelling at a bunch of shapes. I didn’t put any more thought into it until my dad asked me what I did at school that day and I told him about the picture. I made up the entire story on the spot and my dad said that he would like to use it in a comic. Over the course of a few months my dad drew the story, changing small details as he went such as the monkey king, which wasn’t in my original story. There were a few things that I wouldn’t let him change such as the magician’s style (he wanted him to be a parlor magician and I wanted a classic stars and moons magician) and the death of the magician. My dad suggested that the magician turn the snake into a lion so that he could eat the shapes and save the magician but I, for some reason, said that the magician had to die at the end."
for someone who’s really optimistic and invested in good characters getting happy endings in my favorite stories it’s kind of weird that I end up so interested in the most awful callous alien people in them
c.f. doc scratch, kyubey, akagi…
not all nonbinary trans folks have the same feelings on it. i don’t think nonbinary folks who are for this petition are bad, oppressive people. i’m speaking from the perspective of a cafab nonbinary, intersex black person who is a descendant of enslaved africans who were forced to assimilate to the colonial gender binary enforced on us via white supremacist conquest in the usa. this is the context i’m speaking from. the hierarchy of gender and sex binarism i have engaged with because of my history is coercive. i am not speaking as a “person of color,” i am speaking specifically from how descendants of enslaved peoples interact with colonialism in the usa.
now lemme tell ya why that’s relevant
Bowser being a dad
Bowser is the best dad
bowser and mario actually settled their differences a long time ago and all the games with bowser’s kids are a game he sets up with the plumbers and the princess to keep all 7 or 8 of them active and engaged for an entire weekend because even the king of the koopas needs a hand sometimes wrangling all of them.
That’s why there’s never any blood, it’s all just playing tag and when you’re tagged you dramatically fall down.
peach spends her time “kidnapped” looking after the little ones and making sure they’re eating properly and doing a good job guarding their castles. once one is “defeated,” peach takes off to check in on the next one and bowser picks up his kid to come hang out back at the main castle and watch the rest of the adventure and eat some of the cake peach makes for the kids.
That is the cutest idea ever and it is now my headcanon.
anyway lets skip straight to the weird shipping art
