Who was your childhood animated crush?
Oh god, there’s been a lot.
From like, 5-8, I was all over Lita/Makoto, and every single Sailor Moon villain from the first three seasons or so, and then Helios too. I had something for Haruka/Amara but I actually felt guilty about it cuz it was so obvious she had a thing with Michiru/Michelle.
I almost had a crush on Lion-o of the Thundercats when I was 9, but he was way too bara for me. AND THAT KID FROM ZOIDS. DOES ANYONE REMEMBER ZOIDS? THAT DUMB SPIKEY HAIRED KID THAT GOT RIPPED AFTER THE TIMESKIP. I DONT EVEN REMEMBER HIS NAME BUT GODDAMN.
Then from 12-14 there was Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho and I held onto THAT one for a while
Then I hit Naruto at 14 and my feels went everywhere. Naruto, Rock Lee, Gaara, Haku, ALL THE TRAGIC BACKSTORIES
and then EVERYONE IN TSUBASA: RESERVOIR CHRONICLE OH MY GOD. EVERYONE
Moral of the story is that I gET A CRUSH ON EVERYONE. DONT LEAVE ME ALONE WITH THEM IT WILL NOT END WELL (FOR THEM)
Canada, Mexico, or other country?
(thanks for reblogging that post about the animal food link thing all the time, i always forget about it but you remind me so thank you!)
I lost track of it for a long time, because I got behind on tumblr and forgot to queue it, but I’ve got it queued for a couple of days now so we’ll all have plenty of reminders!
You’re very welcome and thank YOU for helping out animals!
blueberry muffins or buckles?
I’m assuming you mean buckles as in a form of cobbler?
In that case, buckles, cuz they come in all sorts of flavors~
hush, you, you are not trash, congrats
I very much am, but thank you for being kind about it
do people ever comment on you smelling like baked goods?
I… actually don’t smell like baked goods, apparently :T People mention how nice the bakery smells, but I’ve never had someone tell me what I smell like
probably cats, coffee, and cologne
Well, I actually commissioned something from someone, not the other way around. They're someone i've spoken to online several times, but not anything deep. I loved their work & figured I could help them & commission them at the same time. When their pet passed, they said anyone who still wanted their request would get it if they wanted it. I told them to take their time, however, it's been over six months now. Had I received the picture, I wouldn't have cared, but I haven't & there's been NO (1)
communication at all. Theyve stopped speaking to everyone who commissioned them. I feel duped.I understand everyone has a hard life & I don’t want to be insensitive, but they promised. In the past, this person has commissioned me & things went fine. I provided the product in a timely manner, they paid & it was good. I just feel like 6 months is a long time for me to wait. Financially, things are hard for me as they are for many people & I put a lot of weight in people keeping their word (2)
& she hasn’t. I don’t want to seem insensitive, but I paid and she took my money. Right now it just feels like I gave my money to a stranger for absolutely nothing. I haven’t even brought this up. I haven’t asked for the money or picture, but at this point I just want my money and I don’t know how to ask. If it costs us what little relationship we have, I guess I’m ok with that. Like she’s bragging about a wedding right now and showing off expensive things, so I feel less bad about asking…
That’s pretty damn shitty, but I’m not clear on if you’ve contacted her or not? You said she hasn’t communicated with anyone she took donations/commissions from, but that you also haven’t asked for the money or the picture?
My advice is that you contact her (wait til after the wedding, if you feel uncomfortable bothering her now), and ask if she’s working on it, if she forgot, or what. Sometimes people forget when they’re stressed, or maybe she really is duping you, but you can’t be sure if you haven’t talked to her.
If she agrees to finish it, give her a (reasonable) time limit, since you’ve already waited six months. If she refuses, or she agrees and still doesn’t provide, then I would recommend submitting her to artists-beware so others can be warned that she does not fulfill her agreements.
Make sure you write clearly so there’s no more misunderstanding, give her time if she needs it since everyone recovers at different rates, and be firm. You acted from the kindness of your heart and she is not appreciating that.
I wish you luck!
Hey, Lee. Can I ask you a hypothetical? I know you have pets, so imagine one gets sick and you open commissions to help pay for treatment. Shortly after opening commissions, the pet unfortunately passes away. People have donated money for the cost of this pet's care. Understandably, youre grieving. Everyone understands. You promise to do the commissions for the people who still want, but you don't. Six months pass. Would you be upset if someone asked for their money back? Would you give it back?
First off I wanna make sure you know that it’s perfectly acceptable that hypothetical me took time to grieve even with the commissions over my head.
Second, it’s kinda a delicate/individual scenario. After all, even if the pet passed away before treatment can start, that doesn’t mean they weren’t taken to a vet and had to be put down, incurring bills from painkillers, blood tests, body scans, and euthanasia (been there myself), so the hypothetical me would still be stuck paying said bills even though the pet passed away (again, been there. $380+ for drugs, a scan, euthanasia, and cremation). However, if this didn’t happen, and the pet died without incurring bills, then there’s really not much I can say about not repaying it if I haven’t finished the commission.
I’d say it would depend on the relationship I had with the person. I would have already gone through the stress of losing the pet, and there’s no reason to give myself more stress. I’d remind the person of any bills I still had to pay, and if they insist on art or repayment, just go with whichever they’re more insistent on.
If this has happened to you, you have my condolences. You’ve gone through enough. No one will blame you for taking the easier path, even if it makes you feel (unnecessarily) guilty.
have you ever fallen into the freezer and had it close on you?
Despite my Crumbs comic, no.
I am short enough, however, that I’ve given many people a scare that I would, with how I lean in off my feet and flail for theatrical purposes.
