I AM WATCHING THE MAGIC SCHOOL BUS ON NETFLIX. BECAUSE FUCK YEAH MY CHILDHOOD.

Is everyone else enjoying their summer? I’m working on my computer tan. Yeah, I’m pasty as hell. I’ve been sewing most of the summer, I got wristbands to go to my apartment pool….two years ago….still haven’t been.
The Mass Effect team seems to be having a ball at the beach though! I stumbled across these adorable photos last night taken by the very talented Tk8919Photography!! She did a whole album and it is friggin’ Cute! Check it out here!

Please, think about it before taking our OC’s for your own RPs. I’m not pissed off about this acting, but I always feel sad for my characters to be used as “lovely-objects-free-to-redo-ready-to-play”.
- My characters = a part of my time
- My characters = a part of my life
- My characters = a part of ME
be respectful, please.
Please don’t take me wrong, I understand what you are trying to say…but, by this rule, shouldn’t any form of fanart/fanfiction/RP stop? I mean, every single character from a comic/manga/TV show/book/film/etc is an OC for it’s author… :S
I was thinking this exact same thing after reading this. Like I get Orphelin’s point, it’s hard not to, but at the same time does it mean we’re disrespecting every other character out there just by giving them life outside their original works?
SOMEONE USING YOUR CHARACTERS IN THEIR WORK =/= RAPE
FUCKING STOP COMPARING THESE THINGS TO RAPE
Stop to be so agressive too, I wrote “mind rape”.It’s figurative. =_= dudes you make so much noise. By the way I speak about taking the characters and create them another backround and story. I love fanarts. But I don’t like to see my characters re-used for RPforums, coming with another stories and backgrounds. It’s a different thing to be a fan and do something as fan, and just take the characters as an object to create their own story with it.
yeah, well, rape isn’t figurative, it happens scarily often and you can’t know what kind of backgrounds people come from. your “mind rape” is still an offensive term that makes light of traumatic and often violent experiences many people have had or are going through at this very moment.
please stop. It was not my my purpose to be offensive for anybody. I speak about drawings, art creation and all this kind of stuff. I’m gonna change my words, if i don’t want to be chase for the rest of my life.
This is the kind of mob mentality over-reaction that pisses me off. Rape is a terrible thing, rape jokes aren’t funny, using the word rape lightly isn’t funny either. (ex: LOLZ I RAPED UR FACE!! PWNED!) But people need to understand that rape has multiple definitions, not all refer to the act of violent forced sexual penetration.
She used the term “mind rape” because she probably feels like someone is absconding with and violating a character she put a lot of thought and effort into creating. And you know what? She has every right to feel that way. orpheelin has mentioned in several descriptions those are HER roleplay characters. As someone who role plays both online and tabletop I cannot even begin to imagine how fucking violated and livid I would feel if someone stole the character I’d poured my heart and mind into creating and bastardized them.
And believe it or not, some professional authors DO despise fanfiction. Of course, they’re a select few, but they don’t have to like it. Just because some people like to see their characters used creatively, or at least quietly accept it, doesn’t mean orpheelin is obligated to in any way. She didn’t COMPARE the use of her personal characters in other people’s role play to sexual rape. She never said “having my characters used by other people is like getting raped.” She called it “mind rape”, she feels violated, someone has taken her mind’s creation, and she has every right to. It’s in no way making light of a sexual crime.
If you want to make noise at someone for using the word “rape” offensively make sure they are actually using it offensively. Rape is not inherently a ‘bad word’ that means “sexual violation.”
I adore orpheelin, her characters, and her work, I understand where she’s coming from.
I just couldn’t help myself!

Boyfriend appreciation post:
A little over a year ago I quietly helped a guy, who I had feelings for, build an Amon cosplay. When the paint on his first mask crackled and he gave up I stayed up late and sanded away all the imperfections by hand and left a little Amon doodle by the mask just to make him smile. When he needed a second mask I carefully laid plaster strips over his face while we watched Star Trek and he tried not to laugh at my jokes while the form set. I later recruited a friend to help me with the equalist cosplay while I finished another so I had an excuse to be near him at Dragon*Con.
A year later we’re living and cosplaying together and he’s the most amazing man I could have ever hoped to have in my life. Every day I can’t believe how lucky I am to have him.
Sorry I’ve been kind of quiet lately - I was scrambling to finish my latest cosplay!!
I wanted to do a Huntress Wizard cosplay with a dab of realism. The only thing really implausible about the costume is the way the quiver attaches (hidden strap) but that was the only way to stay semi-true to the cartoon’s layout.
I ultimately ran out of time and some things aren’t quite up to par yet. The glove and shirt need minor tailoring and the arrows need to be re-done with ACTUAL fletchings, not craft foam.
But at the end of the day I was really happy with how it looked and it was fun to wear!
I’m too tired to work on this anymore so /throws mermon on blog and flops to bed
I have the weirdest boner right now.
Happy Friday everyone!
