"You wonder what I am doing? Well, so do I, in truth. Days seem to dawn, suns to shine, evenings to follow, and then I sleep. What I have done, what I am doing, what I am going to do, puzzle and bewilder me. Have you ever been a leaf and fallen from your tree in autumn and been really puzzled about it? That's the feeling." --T.E. Lawrence


Ancient Greeks favoured homosexuality not because they were oh so tolerant but because they were misogynists and believed you should only have sex with women for the sake of procreation and lesbians were banned can everyone please stop glorifying that now Please


Hey guys! So as I’ve been posting, I’m doing my first ever non-US con this year and tabling at Thought Bubble in Leeds! As summer winds down and November, and my trip, looms nearer, I am getting more and more anxious about it, so I’m offering some limited edition shirts to help cover some of the expenses of the trip. Here’s the info I wrote for the campaign:
I’ve been tabling at cons for over 15 years now, but only within the states. Over the last few years, I’ve gained a following overseas, and have had lots of requests to do a European con, and this year I finally have a shot, but travel that far just ain’t cheap!

It’s been a dream of mine to return to Europe for years now. As a military brat, I lived in Germany as a kid and was lucky enough to visit a number of countries, but was too young to appreciate it. Now I have a chance to go back so I can table at Thought Bubble in Leeds, one of the coolest independent comic cons anywhere. My table is secured, my flight is booked, and now I’m broke. By getting a shirt, you’re helping me with other incidental costs, such as hotel, travel/train fare, food, and actually getting product to sell at the con. In the long run, I’ll ideally create a sketchbook or mini comic based on the trip, which I’ll be posting online in 2015, and the help I get through this campaign will go a long way in making that happen. This particular design will never be available on any other merchandise from me EVER, so once these shirts are done, they’re done for good, so you’ll get something something super unique in return for helping me make this happen.
I have shirts on two different sites because I wanted to offer an alternate color option because I am indecisive, ugh. I have to sell 25 of the green option, and 50 of the pink option in order to get the funds from the campaigns, so please help signal boost if you can! (Don’t worry, if I don’t sell enough shirts to meet the minimum, you won’t be charged at all).
Pink Variant available through Booster
Green Variant available through TeeSpring (this site also offers alternate shirt styles, such as tanks and hoodies)

short hiatus as I move across the pond to England!

Seriously though, if you don’t think asexual representation is important, you need to get educated, because it is really hard to live in a sex-centric culture and not be interested in sex. 

I have seen so many posts about finding out about asexuality after joining tumblr and you know what word almost all over them have in common? Broken. 

And that’s fucked up.

we all have to understand how important the anniversary of amok time airing is. this episode gave us slash it gave us fuck or die this episode is everything, our forebear, our origin, two men humping each other on the burning sand. let us take a moment of silence for theodore sturgeon, star trek, spock and kirk, and how totally out of control this became over time 


“At 19, I read a sentence that re-terraformed my head: “The level of matter in the universe has been constant since the Big Bang.” In all the aeons we have lost nothing, we have gained nothing - not a speck, not a grain, not a breath. The universe is simply a sealed, twisting kaleidoscope that has reordered itself a trillion trillion trillion times over. Each baby, then, is a unique collision - a cocktail, a remix - of all that has come before: made from molecules of Napoleon and stardust and comets and whale tooth; colloidal mercury and Cleopatra’s breath: and with the same darkness that is between the stars between, and inside, our own atoms. When you know this, you suddenly see the crowded top deck of the bus, in the rain, as a miracle: this collection of people is by way of a starburst constellation. Families are bright, irregular-shaped nebulae. Finding a person you love is like galaxies colliding. We are all peculiar, unrepeatable, perambulating micro-universes - we have never been before and we will never be again. Oh God, the sheer exuberant, unlikely face of our existences. The honour of being alive. They will never be able to make you again. Don’t you dare waste a second of it thinking something better will happen when it ends. Don’t you dare.”
