new aesthetic: man covered in cacti, surrounded by confused police
I don’t understand this aesthetic.
neither do the police
Okay, I realize this hilariously late for Asexuality Awareness Week (which was last week), but due to unforeseen stressors, it didn’t really get done in time.
Anyway! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while, and I’m proud of myself of actually getting a six page comic done within a week. (Not that it’s really anything super fancy, but it’s better than nothing lol) I do apologize for the massive ugly text wall that is page four but I had a hard time figuring out how to convey it visually while being kind of pressed for time.
oh and the occasional copy/paste, I’m sorry for that too
Enjoy! Click on the separate pictures if the text is hard to read.
So, about a month ago, me and my younger sister decided to hit up the local thrift store. I stumbled upon this gem.
For $2, I decided to take this treasure home, and aptly name it “Crying Baby Pumpkin-Head”. When I got home, I realized it had a cord, and plugged into the wall…What in God’s holy name did I buy this is a soul sucking demon of Satan.
#I love a lot of things about the way this show turned out but maybe the very best one is how joan is a watson with limits#I don’t think I’ve ever seen an adaptation where watson doesn’t sigh in exasperation and then put up with the abuse#from day zero she’s laying down rules#and she’s patient and forgiving and remarkably low-key#(anyone who wakes me up before my alarm clock on the regular is getting a knife to the face)#but she absolutely knows the difference between eccentricity and unreasonable behavior#and is utterly able and willing to enforce boundaries#and to call holmes out#repeatedly.#now that I think of it I don’t particularly find watson interesting or likeable in… any adaptation I’ve seen?#and suddenly you have a holmes/watson dynamic that’s actually played as equal#where 2/3rds of their interaction is negotiation#(the other 1/3rd is mutual appreciation society and it’s so much better because of the negotiations)#real friends don’t just love you#they also challenge you to become a better version of yourself#that’s the show.(tags: smokeandsong)

Lost it at Maid Marion.
Okay, but it’s actually super-important that Claire Hummel changed the portrait of Pocahontas after being criticized by native activists for the first Pocahontas’s age/sexualization etc.
