i pretty much just use this brush exclusively. like. for sketching + lineart + colours?? everything but like„ softer shading i guess but i dont do that v often and when i do i sort of just fiddle around w the settings on a default brush so ive no specific brush for that to offer u (this is an edited version of the default marker tool btw)
asexual and aromantic visibility is So Important because I’ve never seen a single aro/ace self-discovery story that didn’t include some variation of the phrase “I thought I was broken.”
my half of an art trade w warriorklng!! fledgling technomancer strife :^0

my half of an art trade with aaronvicton
heres that kirindave you ordered i hope u like him, im a little shaky rn
(if you think i am above writing things for the sole purpose of being able to write sleepy strife and bioluminescence then you are so very, very wrong. descriptions of will informed by this absolutely gorgeous piece of art. warnings for bruises and mild shippy-ness i guess? but mostly it’s just silly fluff and glowing freckles tbh)
It’s only after he’s chased Will off his property that Kirin realises, despite handing both the taglock and the poppet over as per the deal, he never actually told Will how to use them.
Strife’s an intelligent, resourceful man – he should really be able to work it out for himself. But if there’s one thing Kirin doesn’t want, it’s to be accused of not holding up his end of the deal. His sense of morality may be a little… hazy at times, unfettered by the strange passions and ethical stances mortals are so fond of, but he still has one.
He will not allow himself to become known as an oathbreaker.
It’s the work of a thought to find the location of Strife’s base on his map, a mere glance enough to remind him of where it is. He was there only hours ago, after all, although after their little trip through the Twilight Forest it feels far longer than that.
The journey is hardly more complicated, between the various spells and trinkets he’s collected and created. Speed, flight, teleportation combine effortlessly to move the landscape around and below him faster than even his own inherent power can, and a part of him sings to the thrill of it.
Some of the mortals here call him demigod. They’re not quite right, of course, just a little sideways from the truth. But like this, he can almost fancy himself as one.

im publishing this to boost my ego (thaNK U.. …)
it’s just like so weird cause a lot of tumblrisms are clearly stemmed from aave and then killed by non-black POC & white people hence their constant misuse and eventual overuse, until black people come up w more terms to use
- prayer circle
- thirst/thirsty/the thirst
- (example) game on point
- (example) game strong
- stay in [pronoun] lane
etc etc etc
stop usin aave just because you learned it on tumblr
you’re still not entitled to it and you’re especially not if you just use it to seem hip and cool and funny
cause what it boils down to is that you don’t use it for expression and you were not raised to speak like that, nor do you live around people who speak like that— you just use it to be funny in front of your friends and that’s the thing I don’t like
another thing to add here is that if the words/phrases are “suddenly a fad” &/or words that have a meaning but are used outside of the meaning in creative ways then don’t use them if you’re not black probably (im black jsyk) cause like
aave was originated to alienate white ppl by speaking more or less in code- so they didn’t know what we were saying. we worked w/ what we had, the english language, to create something unique to us & to suit our needs when the rest of this country was out to get us
but then white ppl are coopting it and turning it into an exotic vool fad and naturally not giving us any damn credit for it, Again
this isnt even bringing in the fact that a lot of aave is coined by black queer &/or trans poc
so i mean please make lists for what white and nonblack folk shouldn’t say but also yall need to remember that it’s not just about words you are literally undermining part of our existence & independence
