Do you ever think you'll stop drawing fanart? No offense it just seems like the kind of thing you're supposed to grow out of. I'm just curious what your plans/goals are since it isn't exactly an art form that people take seriously.


Ah, fanart. Also known as the art that girls make.

Sad, immature girls no one takes seriously. Girls who are taught that it’s shameful to be excited or passionate about anything, that it’s pathetic to gush about what attracts them, that it’s wrong to be a geek, that they should feel embarrassed about having a crush, that they’re not allowed to gaze or stare or wish or desire. Girls who need to grow out of it.

That’s the art you mean, right?

Because in my experience, when grown men make it, nobody calls it fanart. They just call it art. And everyone takes it very seriously.




 Advice he’d give a 12-year-old version of himself"It might sound oversimplified, but I’d say, ‘Shhh.’ It’s so funny how noisy my brain is - it’s what it does, it makes thoughts. And the problem is, I think in most of our lives the root of suffering is listening to that brain noise and actually identifying with it as if it’s who you are. That’s just the noise your brain makes. And more often than not, it probably doesn’t have much to say that’s going to help you. I’ve felt my best are the moments that I’ve been able to pull that plug and say, ‘Chris … shhh … shhh.’ And it’s not quitting, it’s not giving up, it’s not washing your hands of the thought, it’s rising above it. All the time I’ve spent suffering as a result of brain noise, hours of my life wasted. So that’s what I’d say: ‘Shhh.’"

The history of geekdom is not a history of men, it’s a history of invisible women.

I was always kinda weirded out by the 50 shades books, primarily because they were twilight fanfic and because of all the negitive mocking media surrounding them, but also because I flipped through one and it just kinda creeped me out a little, I am an avid fanfic reader, Sterek is mainly my jam but at the time I was into true blood Eric/Sookie. Anyway I was just really weirded out because in the part I read it seemed like the guy was trying to not only embarrass the lady but make her feel.. tbc


…really uncomfortable and I was kinda sort of led to believe from just things on the internet that BDSM type stuff was more about the submissive trusting the dom to take care of them? Is that right? 50 shades seems good because it has led to women being more open about their own pleasure, but it has also created a romantic but potentially harmful view of ‘kinky’ sex that hasn’t really been mainstream before. what are your thoughts?

also do you think the movie will illuminate the instability of the guy more than the book or will the movie just be really uncomfortable ‘almost porn’? because when you are reading a book you can pretend the person next to you has no clue what it is about, you can close it and put it away but in a movie theatre it would be very awkward, ya feel?

Oh my gosh this ask is BEAUTIFUL. I’m sorry it took me literally three days to give you a response, but wanted to give this the attention to detail that it deserves. Also I’m adding a cut because this got LONG.
