Who has been your biggest mentor on the show?
Nat Dormer. I can ask her the most stupid embarrassing questions. I’ll be like “so what does it feel like to be in love?” and she will tell me and give advice. She’s probably my biggest mentor just in general life.

This needs more notes ._.

Here I am reblogging this from myself because I think everyone who breathes needs to see it and MAKE IT STOP.

This is a joke. He interviews people and makes jokes. Calm your feministic self down.

Get out. If you honestly think that, I want you to unfollow me right now.

That guy isn’t joking, and if he is, its a god awful joke, and has no right to be supported. If he’s joking, then its an example of institutionalized misogyny in comedy that has been built up over the years and decades past, and it is not acceptable.

I am uncomfortable with those jokes, and I’m a GUY. It isn’t ok to do to ANYBODY, let alone people who are trying to enjoy a convention and cosplay a character they like. This is disgusting and shit like this needs to stop, from all angles, even someone trying to make a shitty joke.

Women are not objects, and they should not be treated as such.

If you think this guy is funny for doing that, and if you honestly think I need to calm down for being “feministic” in this issue, then you need to unfollow me, because I have no intention of stopping. And now that you’ve drawn attention to yourself with this, I highly suggest you don’t bring it up again.

In fact, I recommend you take a good long look at yourself. Take a look at how you are treated, and how other people around you are treated. If you think this is comedic and funny, you need to check yourself, because its not. If you think joking about women in such a way that demeans them and objectifies them, you need to check yourself.

And above all else, if you think someone standing up for equality of women and the cessation of this shitty behavior from EVERYONE, not just this comedian, warrants someone like YOU telling that person to “calm [their] feministic self down”, then you need to reconsider your priorities in life.

Do you keep all of your old art? Like, all the art that you think is horrendous? I just drew a picture and I'm not sure wether to keep it for the future, or just toss it.

DON’T toss it! 

it might be a little annoying to find a place for your old stuff, but you will thank yourself later. it’s hard to explain the feeling you get when you find them in years to come- like, you’re appalled that you used to draw like that, but also you get a rush of pride for all the improvement you’ve made!! so, if anything, keep it for comparison. and as an example for what you need to work on. at least, that’s my experience.

↳Andromeda Tonks (Née Black)


MYTHOLOGY: Andromeda was the daughter of King Cepheus and Queen Cassiopeia of Ethiopia. One day, Cassiopeia angered the Nereids (sea nymphs) by claiming Andromeda was more beautiful than they. As punishment, the sea god Poseidon sent Cetus (a sea monster) to destroy Cepheus’ kingdom on behalf of the Nereids; only Andromeda’s sacrifice would appease him. Andromeda was chained to a rock and left for the monster until Perseus came to her rescue. Andromeda and Perseus then married and had six children. After her death, the goddess Athena placed Andromeda’s image among the stars (between Perseus and Cassiopeia).

Size: 19th biggest constellation.
Spiral Galaxy: Andromeda Galaxy1 — closest galaxy to the Milky Way & the most distant object in the night sky that is visible to the naked eye.
