Orana and Bodahn in #7, because sometimes I wonder what their very first thoughts were when they saw the chantry explode.

"She was very beautiful. Kind… but sad."

Missing moments between Padme, Luke and Leia. One of the things I wondered about the original Star Wars storyline was how little mention was made of Luke and Leia’s mother, in comparison to the mystery of their father – which I understand, given Anakin/Vader’s huge role in the story, but. it still makes me sad that the twins would never know their mother, and Padme would never be able to see her children through the Force… :(

So, forever-unfinished wish fulfilment drawings! (they deserve a lot better, I’m sorry) - inspired by “The Mother We Share" by CHVRCHES and "Hear You Me" by Jimmy Eat World

I mean let’s look at the types of magic that piss off the Chantry

Magic that comes from cultures that are coded as PoC

Magic that comes from societies that have entirely different family and social structures- think of Rivain and the way they uphold female magic users, or the Avvar and the way they view commitment/polygamy/relationships

Magic that was once a gift and freely available to everyone, as the Dalish once celebrated

Magic that doesn’t come with conditions attached to it, magic from outside the Chant, from outside the Maker

That type of magic is forbidden and unnatural and a ‘derangement’ and those magic users go crazy and die young

I’m really supposed to believe that the in-world reasoning for this is legit and this isn’t straight up racist bullshit bleeding over

Lmao doing my reading on hedge mages for stuff about Corinne and her family like noooo there’s definitely no developer bias at all, definitely nothing ableist about saying mages will go crazy and die young if they’re not ~trained~ (emphasis on training being synonymous with circle tower teachings) which is just

okay so all the Rivaini seers die young huh. Every Avaar shaman goes crazy and uncontrollable because they weren’t taught magic in a big stone building. Dalish mages definitely go off the deep end, certainly don’t see them cultivating their magic carefully and passing it down through generations

why are the forms of magic that are coded as being natural talents for the in-world PoC and an intrinsic part of their culture treated as inferior and more dangerous oh wait I think I know the answer to this 

sorry that Corinne’s a brown hedge witch with more power and control than any circle mage guess she missed the memo that that’s not allowed

HERES WHAT WENT DOWN TODAY IN THE CANADIAN PARLIAMENT

knitmeapony:

allthecanadianpolitics:

until-i-find-you:

Warning: the following may be too badass for you to handle.

Today the Conservatives filed out of the House of Commons in Ottawa early. The NDP followed. Moments later, all the NDP MPs came back into the house and took their seats. They had realized that, with time still on the parliamentary clock and no Conservatives in attendance, they had a very rare majority. In Canada, the conservatives have a majority-controlled house. What followed knocked my socks off. We have a big problem in Canada. Aboriginal women and children have been disappearing for decades from their communities. Sometimes the bodies are found, but often times they’re simply forgotten by everyone but their family and the aboriginal communities. This is a growing problem all across Canada, with the numbers of missing or murdered aboriginal women becoming more and more alarming. The police won’t do anything. The government, despite the pressure that’s been put on them by the NDP, won’t do anything or even talk about the issue. So with a sudden majority in the house and no Conservatives there to mess things up or heckle too loudly for us to be heard, the NDP forced the debate on the Missing or Murdered Aboriginal Women of Canada. It was a stunning moment, made even more so by the fact that the Opposition (NDP) had to literally trick the government to get the issue to the floor. I’m amazed. What a moment. Well done, especially to Mr. Romeo Saganash and Mr. Tom Mulcair. Bravo, New Democrat MPs. Jack would be so proud. To see a video of the incredibly emotional moment in the house, see my blog, I just posted a link.

One correction. The majority of the conservative MP’s had left the house but there were a small number still in attendance. But definitely less than the full NDP caucus which is why they were able to force the debate.

What an amazing moment.

Anyone who hasn’t seen it needs to read the speech and watch the video of Mr Romeo Saganash's appeal for justice.

BLESS.  Well done, NDP.  Bolding added by me

Ugh awful people with my name/name that is far too close and I get called that most of the time anyway

This is why I go by Defira so much

There’s only one Defira, there’s no history of other people’s shittiness attached to that, only my own. Like when people say “oh I’ve never known a nice Jake” or shit like that, when I go by Defira the onus of responsibility is on me and only me

But the rest of the time if someone’s a dickhead with the real name it’s :|

Can u not

Some of us trying to be decent human beings with that name

Apparently for summer they’re predicting cross-country heat waves, bushfires and average temperatures to be exceeded by a minimum of 5C on previous years

They’re gonna bring out the Apocalypse Purple for the weather maps again aren’t they

I’ve tried to put this off as long as I can, but I honestly don’t know what else to do. If we don’t pay our rent on time, there’ll be steep fines added, and we frankly can’t afford that, we can’t even afford to make rent on our own, let alone additional fees.

I’m taking commissions, if anyone is interested, or if you’d rather just donate the paypal is crimsonkiss21@gmail.com

I’m he just so miserable and stressed and afraid and I’m so sorry for being such a bother.

Thank you, if you offer help or a signal boost.
