I’m so sorry to recommend Reddit bc it’s literally a cesspool, but. For your anon who just realized they’re a lesbian, there is a forum there called r/late bloomer lesbians full of women in this situation. Many of them are in LTR with men, sometimes married with children. It’s a pretty common situation and it’s a good forum to look through and maybe get some support.
(referencing this post)
Hey Nonny!
Ah, yeah, I’ve been recced certain areas of reddit too for advice and art help, and it does sometimes have their genuinely good communities. Thank you for suggesting this site for Nonny and anyone here who is also going through a similar situation:

Cheers! <3

Useful words on the topics of fandoms
All found via @niuniente whose post I accidentally stumbled upon... don’t even remember where right now :D Just gathering them all in one post, because, while I am family-friendly, the authors I link to may not be.
“You DON’T OWN anything you’re fandoming so hard over. DON’T harrass the creators”
“Older fans are crucial to the survival of fandoms”
Just general “fandom” tag
More on the humorous note: “Why high school peer pressure won’t work on me”

The centerpiece of this argument is the fact that Christmas is celebrated on December 25th -- once observed as the winter solstice -- and that there was also a major pagan holiday celebrated around the winter solstice (Saturnalia). But Saturnalia wasn't on December 25th (it ran from December 17-23), and it's unlikely that there would have been much celebrating happening on the 25th, since everyone was still hungover from Saturnalia, and trying to build a foundation for the New Year's festival drunk, which (starting all the way back in 153 B.C.) began on January 1st. Christ's unfortunate, one-gift-counts-for-both birthday of December 25th started with the A.D. 204 writings of Hippolytus of Rome. He figured it by starting with March 25th, the accepted date of Jesus's death since at least A.D. 200. Add in the fact that, according to Jewish Talmudic tradition, all righteous men died on the same day they were conceived, and Jesus' conception must have also taken place on March 25th. Then basic biology tells us that nine months after conception comes the birth: December 25th. There was a smaller pagan festival called Sol Invictus (Unconquered Sun), which, besides sounding like a Vin Diesel movie, did celebrate the winter solstice on the 25th. However, Sol Invictus wasn't created until A.D. 274 (well after Hippolytus did his hump-math) by the Roman Emperor Aurelian. In fact, there's even a good possibility that Sol Invictus was created to provide a pagan alternative to the Christian celebration, rather than the other way around.

I always put it down to “everywhere that has recognisable winters has a celebration in them because they’re miserable to live through without one”.

Ekaterin’s mother is dead. All of Ekaterin’s surviving relatives are male (except for the Professora).
Her father is Shasha Vorvayne (so her maiden name is Vorvayne). She may have a surviving stepmother, Violie. Shasha Vorvayne’s wife, Ekaterin’s mother, was Lord Auditor Vorthys’s sister. (and ouch, that hurts - we have Vorthys and his wife, and then we have his sister who tells Ekaterin to just never react to anyone and eventually they will stop hurting her.)
Ekaterin Nile Vorvayne Vorsoisson is her full name. As far as I know, Nikki is just Nikolai Vorsoisson. I wonder if she will become Ekaterin Nile Vorvayne Vorsoisson Vorkosigan? Just keeping tacking the Vors on.
Tien’s mother is alive, but Nikki’s legal guardianship defaulted to a third cousin on Barrayar, Vassily Vorsoisson.
Ekaterin counts the Professora as one of the few non-disheartening relatives she possesses - a woman of acerbic comments, but deep understanding.
Nikki needs annual checkups for his Vorzohn’s Dystrophy, and applied retrogenes (not sure how they are applied). He is delightfully non-military - a major is better than a lieutenant because a) Lieutenant Vormoncrief is a bore and b) majors make more money.
Ekaterin’s brother Hugo has wife Rosalie and daughter Edie, Nikki’s cousin - old enough to be sent off on her own to find her cousin Nikki, old enough to be difficult to drag out of bed, old enough to be promised shopping as a lure, old enough to have two brothers “grown almost past the surly stage.”

so i've been trying and failing to get into the daredevil comics after watching the show, do you have any recommendations about to where to start or any comic or run that is like A Classic Must Read etc. or just your favorites/the ones you consider the best? (you must have already been asked this but i can't seem to find it and i value your opinion in all things daredevil esp the comics) thank you!
I have three suggested starting points, all of which are up to your personal preference:
1. My absolute favorite run is the Mark Waid and Paolo Rivera/Chris Samnee one! It’s so sprightly and funny and character driven and absolutely gorgeous to look at, I can’t say enough good things about it. You’ll want to look for Daredevil (2011) and then Daredevil (2014) (Marvel canceled the book and started it up again at #1 in 2014 but the story continues without interruption). If you’re reading in trades you’ll want to look for Daredevil by Mark Waid Volume 1, which I think might only be in print in hardcover these days.
2. If you’re looking for something more similar in tone and content to the show, I recommend starting with Frank Miller’s run from the 80s. There are a lot of collections out there if you search for “Daredevil Frank Miller” so really whatever fits your accessibility/budget needs should work. Or if you’re looking for single issues he starts drawing Daredevil (1964) at issue #158 and writing at #165, and his most famous story, “Born Again,” is #227-233. He also did the miniseries Man Without Fear but that’s not my favorite.
3. Finally, if you want something similar to the show but more contemporary feeling than Miller, I recommend starting with the Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev run from the early 2000s. Again, you can just search for “Daredevil Brian Michael Bendis” to find a collection, or if you’re looking at single issues things really kick off with Daredevil (2001) #26.
I hope that helps!

Can we get a photo edit tutorial? Sorry if this was asked before
hello! no need to apologize i’m always happy to help you guys :) for icons i don’t do much besides cleaning the mangacap (i’m currently using the eraser tool) + adjusting the levels and curves + using topaz clean and then smart shapen 
Tumblr media
if it’s a webtoon i’ll play around with the colors (selective color, color balance)

Hi I was wondering on what basis do you make the color selection for your background? Isn't it like hard?
hello ! usually i just use the polygonal lasso tool to select my subject! i feel like i get a 'cleaner' work done with it. then select inverse and i can either erase the background if i already have a layer with solid color OR use the brush tool to paint my selection. it can be annoying but it's not hard at all :D

Hello I'm a new blogger so how do you get ppl to ask you for requests? And how can you make your icons like visible to many in the interested fandom,i.e how to get more notes?😭
hi!!! i don't know if it's still the same but back then only the first 4 or 5 tags showed up in tracked tags so i stick with that since it's a more reliable option. i just put the important tags first (e.g. haikyuu icons, manga icons) for my posts to be seen. p.s.: some fandoms have a specific tag to track edits (when i used to make teen wolf gifs it was the "twedit" tag to get more notes from people from the fandom. as for the requests i honestly don't know lol i started this blog randomly posting icons from mangas/webtoons i like and eventually people started making their request! you can try posting things from what's more popular to get more attention
sorry the answer got this long but i hope this helps!

The option to use the old dashboard is only available if you have Xkit. If you dont have it you can download it for free at their tumblr, new-xkit-extension. If you have xkit and still dont have that option, i would contact them to see if they can help.
I’ve been in this site for like years and I didn’t know about the existence of that extension lol, but yes thank you :D I now have it and it worked (: back to old dashboard thank you anon. uwu
