BUT she realized, making this show "that was the fantasy, the idea of the complicated but sympathetic" isn't close to "real world villains who lack empathy when they hurt people and take away rights" 5 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 12m "even hordak is a fantasy, like, what if these were the villains that we faced, these complicated shades-of-grey... that's the escapist version. the pain of a real-world person is... how could you THINK that? how could you DO that? and there's not really an answer 7 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 9m "we are gonna have massive status quo shifts, like... you guys have no idea" 2 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 9m "we are NOWHERE near done" gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 6m "i am a gay woman, engaged to a woman. i was really passionate about... in the show's DNA, [providing a home to the lgbt+ community." gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 6m "the rainbow iconography is no accident. 2 6 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 4m "it's even more than the ships, the pairings... here is a WORLD, where queer themes are so interwoven into the fabric of the show that they exist on every level, even if they're not made explicit. obviously there are still barriers, but these themes... can't be removed." 7 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 3m when noelle pitched the rainbow thing at the end of the battle, an exec was like, "what's the point?" and noelle said, deadpan, "it's the gay agenda" 6 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 3m "this isn't a secret.. or something i'm ashamed of. it's a big part of what the show is. it's bigger than ships. it's about showing a world where this is just a part of normal life." 5 gee i wonder if sam likes catra @heyadorah 1m "there are so many things, even in the next episode drop, that are gonna change the whole stakes of the show." hey-adora:noelle stevenson did an awesome interview with the progressive of power podcast! i took notes on twitter, thought tumblr would like them too 3

germanbrothers: Woah! Happy 150th birthday to the Prussian-Italian Alliance!!On 8 April 1866, Prussia met up with Italy because they had one thing in common:Fuck Austria.Above: Summary of events.In 1866, Prussia was knee-deep in its effort for German Unification. It had already fought with Austria against Denmark for the territories of Schleswig Holstein in 1863, and now, only three years later, there was a dispute between them that would prompt Bismarck to declare war on Austria. There was a political reason, but mostly Bismarck just really wanted to go to war against Austria.See, Prussia and Austria had been at each other’s throats for over a century, and that was a problem - the lesser German states either allied against one, or the other. In order for Unification to happen with Prussia on top, Austria needed to be crushed.In 1866, Italy was ALSO knee-deep in its effort for Italian Unification. It had already fought against Austria in two previous wars - the first resulted in an Austrian victory, and the second resulted in Sardinia being annexed from Austria because France came in to help. Venetia was still in Austria’s hands, and that sucked, because Venice is in Venetia, and the Austrians outlawed Carnevale, which is an outright sin.Also the whole, ‘not being in charge of our own culture and politics’ bit, but seriously - those masks are hella nice.So today in 1866, Prussia and Italy got together and was like “yo! We’re trying to unite, and this douchecanoe is being a pain in the ass about it!” Bismarck agreed that when he went to war against Austria (spoiler: he went to war against Austria), he would not sign a separate Peace Treaty until Italian independence was guaranteed and Austria was left sobbing in a corner, hungry and alone. How nice!This alliance was imperative to the Austro-Prussian War. Due to this alliance, Austria was feeling heat on both sides of its borders, forcing its resources to be stretched thin. This allowed for an easy, 7-week defeat, that resulted in Prussian dominance over all other German states, and the completion of Italian Independence Unification.The painting above, illustrated by Andrea Appiani jr., depicts an allegory of the woman, Italy, defending Venice, the lion.: germanbrothers: Woah!

shadowscapes-stephlaw: via https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292149352/descants-and-cadences-an-art-book-by-stephanie-law) Art has always been about the exploration of other worlds to me.  It is a medium to view the world with a different perspective and to find elements of beauty in what seems ordinary. I want to transport myself, and my audience into a mirror existence. That’s what “Descants Cadences” is — I want this book to be a window to invite you in to participate with my visions. For the artwork in this collection I’ve been feeling along the boundary between dream and reality. I’ve delved into the language of allegory that we’re all exposed to from the very first nursery rhyme that we hear as a child, and rediscover when we read to our own children. I’ve sought after tiny worlds of wonder from an insect’s viewpoint. I love to get lost in the incredible beauty of growth and decay that you find in nature. Most of these pieces were created over the past three years and have never been published in any other volume. It includes the Magpie pieces from my sold out series that I showed at Krab Jab Studio, as well as paintings from my other popular series — The Stag Sonata Cycle, Insecta, Strange Dreams and more. The book is a stream of consciousness journey, following mythical creatures like white stags and faerie queens, to much stranger guides and masked creatures. : shadowscapes-stephlaw: via https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292149352/descants-and-cadences-an-art-book-by-stephanie-law) Art has always been about the exploration of other worlds to me.  It is a medium to view the world with a different perspective and to find elements of beauty in what seems ordinary.
