So that’s all I’m posting tonight. Haven’t even started on the other Gravity Falls stuff. Which will be in my style this time. Also keep in mind that I have posted some of those sketches on my twitter. I post many wips and junk so get on it nerds!
classykatelyn I wish I could reply to your text on my phone. It would so much more convenient.
I do agree that I did want to see him slightly more evil bit I also see his character more like Loki, mischievous and opportunistic but not really malevolent. We see from the beginning that he can be a softie and he does feel affection. So when we get to the end him “joining the good guys” isn’t really a suprise. But he knows and understands that he’s been bested. To me the deal was very much reminiscent of ancient Greek gods playing with people’s lives because they literally had nothing better to do. So for Xibalba losing wasn’t really all that bad.
I really loved the relationship between Xibalba and La Muerte. They’re very much the old couple who constantly fight but really do care for each other. Even if Xibalba is a total asshole. He’s not necessarily evil just horribly mischievous.
i like imagining dipper asking grunkle stan why he isn’t as hard on mabel as he is on dipper, “like i mean I GET IT, why you make me do all this hard stuff, you want to toughen me up and make me more capable or whatever, but how come you don’t try to toughen mabel up too???”
and grunkle stan takes a knee, hand on dipper’s shoulder, “KID……….i love ya but you’re a weenie, and your sister isn’t. plus, she’s a girl! girls gotta deal with stuff on a regular basis that would make you or me or soos or any other dude on the planet cry and wet their pants.”
and then mabel rappels down from the ceiling w/ her grappling hook and pulls a freshly knitted sweater that says “GIRL POWER” over stan’s head
If you were ever a girl that people whispered about and laughed at as you walked by…. That feeling never goes away. You’re suspicious of everyone around you having a good time, thinking it’s at your expense.
a pathological fear of being seen/watched/drawing attention to yourself in any way, and the judgement/ridicule you feel is attached to it
know what scopophobia ISN’T?
a fear of eyes.
know what you should be tagging with #scopophobia?
probably nothing. no static 2-dimensional image on the internet could even come close to evoking the kind of anxiety that comes with being around real live people looking at you and watching you and paying attention to you in a real live public setting. unless its a text post or video that discusses at length someone’s actual experiences dealing with scopophobia that could be uncomfortable or triggering to others who share the condition, i SERIOUSLY DOUBT you’ll find a situation where tagging it is appropriate.
know what you SHOULDN’T be tagging with #scopophobia?
basically everything that you’re tagging with scopophobia
if you feel deeply unsettled seeing images of eyeballs, or a photo of a person looking at the camera, or anything of that sort, you probably have something entirely different instead of/in addition to scopophobia, such as ommetaphobia (fear of eyes).
this probably sounds a lot angrier than i intended but i am getting really goddamn tired of people mistakenly tagging selfies with scopophobia without even bothering to find out what it actually is? it just feels kind of trivializing to those of us who cant actually function like humans in public without having panic attacks because we feel like the whole world is scrutinizing our every word and action
