    And so it begins…

    Night time.

    A streak of brilliant white light momentarily lit up the inky sky over Earth as it shot across the night. A ball of ghostly fire that trailed wisps of smoke and dust.

    Out in a field, it was completely silent.  A black sky stretched across the vast countryside, littered only by an arc of soundless stars.

     In the darkness, the universe held its breath.

    The still night was interrupted only long enough for a whisper of wind to sweep over the grassy plains, rippling outwards until it disappeared into the distance.

    Silence again.

    A faint rumbling.

    The sky split open and suddenly it was day time, the fields that spread in every direction were awash in light and colour. A screech and a roar and the stars vanished behind blue flames as an enormous, creaking mass hurtled towards the ground.

    To those who lived in the nearby city, it had sounded like nothing more than a dull thud. Perhaps something falling over in another room…

    The light vanished as quickly as it had appeared.
    Silence again.
    Darkness.
    Plumes of smoke rose from the horizon, silhouetted by the stars.
    The universe let out a breath.

    “They’re safe”.

    sunvapor asked: What the fucks happening in Ferguson?


    Answer:

    clehmentine:

    Alright, i’m gonna sit down and basically explain the situation in this ask so everyone of my followers knows why i’m so pissed.

    Michael Brown, a 17 - 18 year old african american boy was unlawfully shot (8-10 times supposedly) by police in St Louis, Missouri on saturday, august 9th, 2014. He was unarmed, and had done nothing to attract suspicion other than the fact that he was black. His body was left in the street for 4 hours. (EDIT: i’ve discovered that the Brown family wishes for any and all photos of Michael lying in the streets to be removed. please respect this and do so)

    There are several claims from witnesses (see: Dorian Johnson’s account and video [HIGHLY RECOMMEND READING UP ON HIS ACCOUNT, ITS VERY SPECIFIC] — Brown’s friend who experienced the situation first hand, La’Toya Cash and Phillip Walker— Ferguson residents nearby the incident),  that fall together in generally close claims. However, the only one who’s claim seems out of place is the police officer’s who shot Brown. Who, by the way, is put off on paid administrative leave AND who’s name remained under anonymity for his safety (However, attorney Benjamin Crump is looking for a way to force release his name). He claims that Brown began to wrestle the officer for his gun and tried attacking him after he told Brown and his friend Dorian Johnson (22) to “get the f*ck on the sidewalk”.

    According to Johnson, after a minor confrontation on the officer’s part where he grabbed Brown by the neck and then by the shirt, the officer pulled his gun on Brown and shot him at point blank range on the right side of his body. Brown and Johnson were able to get away briefly and started running. However, Brown was shot in the back, supposedly disabling him from getting very far. He turned around with his arms in the air and said “I don’t have a gun, stop shooting!” By this point, Brown and the officer were face to face as the cop shot him several times in the face and chest until he was finally dead. Johnson ran to his apartment and by the sound of his account, seemingly had some sort of panic attack. Later he emerged from his home to see Brown still laying in the streets. People were gathered with their cellphones, screaming at the police.

    According to msnbc, the police refuse to interview Johnson at all, despite his amazing courage to come forward. They didn’t wanna hear it. They only listened to the cop’s account of it all and were vague with the media on what they thought happened. They’ve also refused to commit to a timeline in releasing autopsy results and other investigation information.

    Numerous rumors are sweeping around such as Brown stealing candy from a QuickTrip, the store he emerged from calling the cops on him, Brown reaching for a gun, Brown attacking the cop first, ect. But these have all been debunked. (I know a lot of these have been debunked, but im having a hard time finding sources. if anyone could help out and link some legit ones id be SO grateful)

    The event in and of itself was terrible, but now it has escalated beyond belief. Around 100 or more people, mostly black, went to the police station to protest peacefully. Things quickly turned bad as martial law got involved and authorities were bringing in K9s, tanks, heavy artillery, ect. The heavy police presence only made things worse as riots began to break out and looting and vandalism started. [ x ] [ x ] [ x ]

    Now, as of very recently, the media has been banned from Ferguson. There is also a No-Fly zone above Ferguson for the reason of “ TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES ” as said on the Federal Aviation Commission’s website. Cop cars are lined up on the borders to prevent people from entering/leaving. Media outlets are being threatened with arrest. It completely violates our amendments and everything.

    It’s becoming increasingly scary and difficult to find out whats going on over there. I’m afraid this is all the information I have, though. If anybody else knows anything about the situation, please feel free to add on or correct any mistakes i’ve made as i’m no expert on writing these things.

    And as a personal favor, i’d really appreciate anyone to give this a reblog in order to spread the word. I think it’s a shame that this is going on in our own country yet so few people know about it. Help me make this topic huge and get this as much attention as possible.

    Extremely useful account detailing the events of Ferguson.
    Read it and understand how horrific it is.
    This still happens.
    Is still happening.

    And then it hit me…

    So just a few moments ago I was scrolling through Tumblr and I saw a photo of a chubby girl and my first thought was “Damn, she’s cute!”
    It wasn’t until it happened again moments later with a different person, that I realised what had happened in my brain.
    Despite being chubby myself, my entire life I’ve fought with a step-by-step thought process:
    1) See someone who is any size larger or skinnier than ’ Celebrity-Thin’
    2) Only notice their weight. Nothing else.
    3) Feel a bit disgusted.
    4) Forcibly remind myself over and over again that everyone is beautiful in their own way.
    The media is so saturated with images of ‘perfect bodies’ that we’re almost conditioned to despise not only our own bodies, but also the people around us.

    But now I’m realising… Whatever the media do, can be undone. Using their own tactics.
    Because recently, thanks to body positivity and body confidence, (especially on the more friendly corners of the internet)  my life has become instead overwhelmed with images of all sorts of men and women who are also being described as beautiful.
    And it’s working.
    The way I think, the way I’ve been brought up, the philosophy with which I’ve lived my entire life… has started to reset.
    My personal standards in beauty have changed, have broadened and I didn’t even notice it happening.

    My brain has been acknowledging this new flood of diverse body types, and sub consciously re-programmed itself with a new definition of beauty that encompasses everyone.
    All it took was to see more and different people being confident in themselves. And seeing everyone else react positively.
    I’m only one person.
    And weight is definitely only one of a hundred issues.
    But it’s a pretty okay first step.
    Because it works.
    It can work.

    Anonymous asked: Are you a self-taught artist? And do you perhaps have any tips on the subject of art? From, a fellow artist :-3 (btw it was amazing meeting you at MCM in May!)


    Answer:

    I’m self taught in the loosest possible definition of the term :P
    I’ve been drawing longer than I’ve been walking and talking, but for the longest time I never drew my own ideas because I was frustrated when they didn’t look like they did in my head.
    So I just copied and learned from other artists until I found my own style and had picked up enough influence from artists I admired to be able to stand on my own.
    Never ever be afraid of needing references or inspiration or help.
    I always felt ashamed when I had to look up a pose or check how someone else shades, because I always thought that a good artist would know how to do those things instinctively.
    But that’s simply not true.
    There are million ways to do one thing, and seeing how other people do it will help you find your way faster.
    Obviously don’t just rip off another artist’s work, and always give credit where it’s due- but keep learning and always let yourself be inspired- not intimidated- by the endless supply of art around you.
    Hope that helps!
