"It’s just a prank, calm down!"
When did harassing women become a prank? You can clearly see that this girl is trying to laugh it off even though she’s uncomfortable with it, and that is not okay. If I’m a feminazi for pointing this out, then so be it, I’m not going to tolerate this shit.
This Sam Pepper controversy is good. It’s good because he’s being called out on this ridiculous and misogynistic behaviour. FUN FACT: If you ever think that you have the right to touch a stranger on ANY part of their body without their consent, you’re wrong. That’s sexual harassment, plain and simple, and it’s completely wrong.
Fuck this guy. This guy is a despicable piece of shit. I hope all of these women press charges against him.
Hello friends, PSA time!
Just popping in to say this behavior is not only not-okay - it’s also ILLEGAL. I can’t vouch for the Americans, but had this been in the United Kingdom THIS MAN COULD GO TO JAIL.
Section 3 of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 clearly states that kind of touching is ‘Sexual Assault’, so long as it’s:
- Sexual in nature (if he touches your sexual organs, or even an organ he has a fetish for, i.e. a foot (or even touching your clothes in R v H (Karl Antony) 2005)
- The victim does not consent*
- The assaulter does not reasonably believe the victim would consent*
If this happens to you, do NOT accept it and walk away, even if it was a ‘prank’. I have seen cases where men have tried unsucessfully to use “it’s just a prank” as a defense (even being drunk is not an excuse, R v Heard 2007!), let me tell you you still have a case against him.
*Please note that the nature of consent depends on a couple other factors (such as whether you were deceived, or forced to consent, etc.) If you take it to court, the defence is bound to try and say you consented to the touch. DO NOT GIVE THEM THE CHANCE TO SAY THAT. SCREAM, DRAW ATTENTION TO YOURSELF, SHOW EVERYONE YOU DO NOT WANT THIS.
It’s your body, and the law gave you the chance to protect it. Please be sure to check with the laws in your local legislations.
"She’s Rosie McCann from the banks of the Bann
She’s the star of the County Down.”
Rosie is one of my favourite pokemon Moira ever gets in the nuzlocke, she’s like a psychotic cross between Miss Piggy and Sinead O’Connor. It’s great.
Rock those birthing hips, Rosie. ;u;
(This OC started out with lute lessons before moving on to improvising on her own while living in the streets.)
(OH HAY IT’S CANOLIN!)
Moira also plays a string instrument - but nothing as exotic as Lute. She’s skilled at the Violin, to a point where she can usually play most folk songs by ear.
Unfortunately, she doesn’t actually own a violin and hasn’t played in a while.
Mayu cannot possibly make herself dislike any specific pokemon. She genuinely loves all of them.
Moira doesn’t play favorites with types, although Donahue claimed with 80% certainty that she was going to be a Fire type in her next life. Despite her petite size, and her poor interpersonal skill, she gives the warmest hugs. UwU
Weena despises Fairy types. Not because she legitimately hates them, but because they represent an area where she (as a dragon type trainer) has no power and control.
Trust me, italians can have lots of sarcasm lol
Ahaha I’ll take your word on it! ;)
(After 20 years, she still hasn't wrapped her head around sarcasm.)
There’s still scholarly debate on whether or not Sarcasm exists in the Chinese language. Weena is slowly getting the hang of it - but she spells it as “SUCCASSUM”.
Moira doesn’t use sarcasm either, because of her first language being Italian. When she’s upset she switches to her mother tongue and swears colorfully instead. >u>
tell me a thing about your OC and I’ll tell you a related one about mine
Some panels for an upcoming page of Burning Bridges. QuQ That’s 6 hours of my life I’m never going to get back.
Urgh, Italian buildings are the worst and I hate everything. But, hey. they sure do look pretty. (You can click on it for a better view, too! )

Donny, I blame you.
present for wanlingnic, which also doubles as a preview for the fanfic we’re writing together :D Not the Secret Saturdays one, a different one.
FAIRY TALE CROSSOVERS GIVE ME STRENGTH
You guys have three guesses as to what fairy tale Marissa and I wanted to mix in with Mighty Max for a brilliant, epic fanfiction.
Your first two guesses don’t count.
Everyone knows I love this stupid fairy tale far more than most people deem healthy. Ugh. I couldn’t resist drawing her myself. ;u;
We called her Mellifera, as in Apis Mellifera, the Honey Bee.
"Do the snowflakes choose a queen?" asked the little boy; for he knew that the honey-bees always have one.
"Yes," said the grandmother, "she flies where the swarm hangs in the thickest clusters. She is the largest of all; and she can never remain quietly on the earth, but goes up again into the black clouds. Many a winter’s night she flies through the streets of the town, and peeps in at the windows; and they then freeze in so wondrous a manner that they look like flowers."
As a follow-up to that one time I drew Donahue dancing… Shadow the Umbreon dancing!
Because, I was listening to Gun Gun Guna on endless loop while drawing something else, and had the irrepressible urge to try drawing this baby fail at Bollywood dancing. ;u;
Shadow’s a first class dork. I just wish I drew him more.
The sexuality of the day is: Moira being sneaky with a fence.
It’s nice to be working on this again. ;u;
Report from Russian tv about the shooting of the teaser for “The Snow King”
Ohhh good lord.
So from what I’ve gathered, there’s going to be an ice show coming up based on the Snow Queen - it’s called the Snow King, stars Evgeni Plushenko, runs from December 5-13 (in Moscow) and January 3-7 (in St Petersburg) and as far as I can find, retells the story pretty faithfully.
Ticketing is HERE.
