I am home alone for Thanksgiving. I asked facebook what I should make for dinner.
The first response was Jello.
I’m not sure why, but I had a shit-ton of Jello in my cupboard, so I made it all.
Looks like he didn’t think about the full life consequences.
Ahhh…good I have literally laughed for like….5 minutes now…whew….what about? Well I’ll be glad to show you, because I think you should all have a good laugh as well~
I was going through one of those ’ Bad Sonic Character’ Blogs, knowing good and well I’d most likely have two or three of my characters on there, and I wasn’t wrong either, I have so far, found one picture.
Now they don’t say anything about the characters design, or the artwork. So what is it that they said was bad? The backstory? Nah I don’t think I even have it posted for this character. No, they put me on the list because of my characters name….that’s right folks, her name. Don’t believe me? Here is the link:
Now by no means do I really care or am I mad because it’s just so….stupid of a reason. I mean firstly, if you just want to vent a pet peeve of yours, that’s totally cool, but like, why did you have to post a picture of someone else’s art to do so? I mean it serves no better purpose than to try and hurt someone’s feelings is my guess, and frankly that didn’t work either. Now lets take a close look at the reasons here shall we? Ok…
" Admin pet peeve of the day: characters that are named a color (or anything with a recognizable distinguishing color) and hey THAT CHARACTER DOESN’T HAVE THAT COLOR ON THEM FOR SOME REASON??????????
For instance, guess this character’s name. Give up? Jade. It’s not too common as a given name, so that leaves us three possibilities: being named after the color (which is a shade of green), the genstone (also a shade of green), or a reference to Jade Harley “
I added the underlines myself. Anyway so lets see….the color, sure they are right she has no green or ‘Jade’ color on her I’ll give you that. Next Genstone oh no wait Gemstone I think it is, which is the same point as before, so repeating yourself there. And Jade Harley, from what I learned is a Homestuck (Or whatever that is or spelled) character….and Jade Harley has no green to them either….oh wait and you said:
" She has no green and doesn’t look a thing like Ms. Harley so WHOOPSIE DAISIES "
So doesn’t that not mean that in fact Jade Harley should also piss you off? Unless that was intended as a joke, then congrats, sailed right over my head there.
Anyway moral of the story kids, if you are named Jade, Amber or even Ruby and you don’t have those colored skin, hair or eyes, you are a mistake go change your name and apparently never speak face to face with this person.
Again, I’m just taking this is stride but I thought since they have room to talk about others, I should be able to talk about them a bit no?
The logic of this admin is just…. what… this post wasn’t signed as they’ve done in recent admin submissions but this is rather poor a post as any simply due to the very nature of it. It has nothing to do with the actual character and a name does not make a character good or bad.. I mean really if things like that piss you off I wish you luck in the real world cause news flash, parents tend to pick names for their kids that they find pretty, not because they think ‘hey they’re green lets name them jade’
Speaking of petpeeves, know what mine is?
People naming characters after the colors they are or after anime characters 8D I just think its terribly uncreative and if she’d been green and you’d have named her jade I’d be frowning at you something fierce missy.
Also looking like jade harley from homestuck somehow makes the character name okay? how does that even work…
Essex social services obtained a High Court order against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb.
The council said it was acting in the best interests of the woman, an Italian who was in Britain on a work trip, because she had suffered a mental breakdown.
If you are not absolutely terrified and outraged by this you are wrong. The precedent this sets put every person on earth in danger.
oh my god read the article this is FUCKING HORRIFIC. she got back on her bipolar disorder medication and is in recovery but they won’t give her her child back “because of the risk she might relapse”. What you’re fucking saying with that is that mentally ill people shouldn’t even be allowed children even if they’re safe and well *just in case*, that we’re a permanent threat to ourselves and others even when we’re in treatment and recovery and living a stable life. I am FUCKING LIVID
Over a fucking panic attack. I’m fucking serious, all of this over a single panic attack. They took her baby in the most horrific way possible because she had a fucking panic attack.
From the Article:
She suffered a panic attack, which her relations believe was due to her failure to take regular medication for an existing bipolar condition.
It’s worth noting, that it’s very common for people on psychiatric medication to go off of their meds if they become pregnant, because of risk of side effects.
I bolded the above. I wanted there to be no one to think that she was being irresponsible for not haven taken her meds regularly. She did it for good reason, for the health of her own baby. And she got punished for it.
i fucking cant
So she did what was best for her kid, has ONE SINGLE PANIC ATTACK WHICH IS A THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE WHETHER THEY HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS OR NOT and decide that they can literally violate her body in a horrific manner and take her kid away. But she’s the dangerous one.
ain’t gonna let it get to me, I’m just gon’ creep
down in Pumpkin Hill I got to find my lost piece
I know that it’s here, I sense it in my feet
the Great Emeralds’ power allows me to feel
Chaos in the emeralds, life is ephemeral
Whatcha gonna do? Nothing is perpetual
World domination, advanced technology
Haven’t got that interest, in that form of glory
Here I come, rougher than the rest of them
the best of them, tougher than leather
You can call me Knuckles, unlike Sonic I don’t chuckle
I’d rather flex my muscles
I’m plotting my schemes,
Wherever I go,
They’re perfect in every way.
I’d love to destroy,
The blue one you know,
He’s an obstacle who always gets in my way.
