Some more advice that I have no right to give.  I’m serious about the Stephen Silver advice though- he’s the man.

lacedupinshame:

I didn’t see any many galaxy/nebula brushes floating around, so I made my own! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧*:・゚✧  Hope someone find it helping ;v;

You have to add detail and effect by self, but it’s pretty easy!! Maybe I make tutorial on it later ;v;

I suggest detail and blend layers on luminosity or addition!! Use bright colours!

will there ever be a day i’m not upset about terezi pyrope

no there won’t because this shit is so tragic i’m so fucking upset i’m crying look at this

terezi’s relationship with gamzee was so SO SO horrible and destructive he did nothing but constantly degrade her and make her feel completely and utterly worthless and powerless

and then she took a stand against that abuse and broke it off and came back to get the justice she rightfully deserves

and he’s not talking or fighting back or dying

 he’s not reacting

she’s having NO effect on him whatsoever

even now without him doing ANYTHING he’s making her feel worthless and powerless

and if that isn’t the saddest most heartwrenching shit i don’t know what is

OH MY FUCKING GOD WILL YOU ALL JUST STOP WITH THE WHOLE
" POOR TEREZI"
" OH TEREZI YOU POOR THING"
" THEIR BLACK ROM WAS SO HORRIBLE~! POOR TEREZI~!" 

FUCK

THAT

SHIT!

1) we dont know what a healthy kismesis relationship is. 

All we know is that at some point they litterally try to kill each other in the relationship!!!

OH NO WHATS THIS?! TEREZI TRYING TO KILL GAMZEE!! 
 2) WE DONT KNOW WHAT THEIR RELATIONSHIP CONTAINED!!!

ALL WE FUCKING KNOW IS WHAT TEREZI HAS SAID. 

WHAT ABOUT GAMZEE’S SIDE HUH?! FOR ALL WE FUCKIGN KNOW TEREZI COULD AHVE MADE GAMZEE FEEL AWEFUL AS FUCK FOR KILLING HIS FRIENDS DURING HIS SOBER STATE!! HAVE YOU EVER MOTHERFUCKING THOGUTH OF THAT SHIT?!

AND 3) WANNA KNOW WHY HE’S NOT FUCKING RESPONDING?!?!?!?

HE

IS STILL

UNDER

ARANEA’S

FUCKING

CONTROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO SHUT THE FUCK UP ABOUT HES BEING HORRID AND AWEFUL FOR NOT RESPONDING TO TEREZI’S ATTACKS BECAUSE FOR ALL WE KNOW HE COULD BE IN HIS MIND SCREAMING IN PURE AGONY AND WISHING HE WAS FUCKING DEAD BUT HE CANT BECAUSE OF ARANEA CONTROLLING HIM!!!! REMEMBER ARANEA CAN CONTROL DEAD PEOPLE

SO FOR ALL YOU ” POOR TEREZI, POOR BABY, OH NO, GAMZEE IS SO HORRIBLE TOWARDS HER” PEOPLE

KEEP THIS SHIT IN MIND

BECAUSE I AM SO FUCKING SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING THIS SHIT!!

Yes, of course. We’re going to stop feeling bad for Terezi and attempt to victimize Gamzee in some way again. Yep. That’s how it’s going to go. We’ll just shrug off Terezi’s blatantly canon abuse and say “maybe Gamzee could potentially possibly be the one being abused maybe!!” Treat Gamzee like a poor, innocent baby like always

1. A healthy kismesitude is rivalry and does not involve killing. At all. At all. It’s a form of romance. If the point comes that one troll is attempting to kill the other, there is something very wrong. “As it thrives on a rivalry between two trolls, defeating or killing your kismesis is discouraged[.]" It’s described as potent arch-rivalry. You remember how Vriska and Eridan gallivanted around, pretending to be their ancestors, and kept a healthy rivalry while they were in a black relationship? You remember how they never legitimately tried to kill one another? You remember how the purpose of a health kismesitude is to keep one another in top condition by repeatedly challenging one another, not completely breaking down your partner’s self worth

2. We don’t know expressly what the relationship contained. You’re right. But what we do know is how it effected Terezi and her worldview. You’re like… degrading her experiences and her emotional and mental pain because we don’t have Gamzee’s side of the story? I don’t really understand. I don’t see what needs to be said of Gamzee’s side of the story. If Gamzee said “we just chilled and ate cheese and crackers,” would that make Terezi’s legitimate psychological turmoil any less important or real??? Why would we trust Gamzee’s side the story at all, anyhow? Gamzee is notoriously deceptive. He’s slinking around behind all his friends’ backs and aiding Lord English. You know. The ancient demon who is going to literally destroy the incipisphere and everyone in it? 

Do you honestly think Gamzee gives a shit about the people he killed? Honestly? After all this time? After he’s thrown their corpses into sprites? After he kissed the heads of the deceased like it was nothing? After he’s been slinking around, intending to kill everyone he’s ever known? You know he’s still sober, correct? There’s no sopor. That sober state is his relatively regular state now. The only thing keeping him in check was his moiraillegiance with Karkat, which, if you recall, he called off. Terezi couldn’t manipulate that point for shit. Terezi couldn’t make Gamzee feel bad about it, because he utterly lacks remorse. He kind of always has. Remember when Sollux died? And Karkat was freaking the fuck out? And Gamzee failed to comfort him? Just kind of shrugged it off because he goes-w/-the-flow. Gamzee doesn’t really seem to see the consequence of death. He definitely doesn’t feel remorse for the people he killed and Terezi definitely couldn’t have exploited it to make him feel bad. 

What we do know is that Terezi was urged into having her vision corrected by Gamzee. Through a bunch of spirals of self doubt and self hatred. She felt inadequate because of him and decided to have her vision healed. This caused a massive struggle of identity. You know why? Because Terezi was undergoing a trial of her title. You have to understand titles a bit for this. Seer of Mind inverts to Witch of Heart. She literally had a shift, or change, of her self/soul/being. This helped Gamzee out, because as a Seer of Mind, she would have insight into the paths laid out before him. What he was going to do. What decisions he was going to make. Having Terezi’s seer powers operating would be very dangerous for him and his cause. He had to disguise his intentions, so he broke her down. 

We know that Gamzee hit her. There’s no reason for her to lie about that when talking directly to Gamzee and not aiming the dialogue at anyone else? There’s literally no reason. No point. She wouldn’t just randomly spew “now you can’t be bothered to raise a hand to me?” Gamzee hit her. He was abusive towards her emotionally, mentally, and physically. 

3. Yes. We all know that’s why he isn’t responding. Terezi doesn’t know that. She thinks he’s being a fucking piece of shit, because he is a fucking piece of shit

You know what he’s doing in his head? 

image

Probably that. Since that’s literally what he was doing the last time Aranea relaxed control on him

Also I’ve seen this argument a few times, so I’m going to dispell it real quick: “Gamzee could have been being controlled by Aranea all along.”

  • Gamzee was still serving Lord English up until recently. If Aranea was controlling him, she would’ve stopped this, as it is counterproductive to her goal. 
  • If we look at the recent update, we see that Aranea’s plan is fairly new, and incredibly sudden. She wasn’t controlling Gamzee prior to her enactment of this plan. 

Gamzee is literally horrible to Terezi. Like, canonically. Even if he wasn’t, he’s a horrible piece of shit. Don’t get me wrong. I love Gamzee as a villain. These kinds of posts just make me really mad. Know what you’re arguing about. Don’t undermine a character’s abuse and the violence they have undergone because you like a character. You can’t just gloss over all a character’s faults and wrongdoings because you love them. Gamzee is a fucked up character. He’s sinister, manipulative, deceptively intelligent and clever, and far from a sweet, innocent baby who can do no wrong. Please, keep this in mind. I’m tired of seeing Gamzee’s violent behavior pardoned and Terezi’s experiences as a victim completely negated by Gamzee-lovers.

thedramaticmurder : thank you very, VERY much 

Look, I don’t care who you are or who you do and do not like 
do not 
ever 
excuse 
abuse 
Hell, I love Gamzee, pre-sober and post sober. He used to make a great friend. And now he’s an amazing fucking villian. You know what villian means?? He’s fucking evil. No good. Good is not a thing. He MURDERED two people. Usually this would be okay but there were only 12 trolls left in existence and thus was not acceptable to troll society. SINCE THERE WAS ONLY 12 TROLLS IN TROLL SOCIETY LEFT FUCKNUTS.(ignoring HIC)  AND NONE OF THEM EXCEPT SAID MURDERERS WERE OKAY WITH PEOPLE BEING POINTLESSLY MURDERED OVER TRIVIAL / GOING INSANE BULLSHIT 
what the people of this fandom need to get through their fucking skulls is : 
GAMZEE IS FUCKING INSANE. 
THAT IS ALL THERE IS LEFT TO HIM. 
HE IS INSANE AND EVIL AND IS TRYING TO LITERALLY GET EVERYONE KILLED BY AIDING LORD ENGLISH IN HIS DESTRUCTION OF EVERYONE. 
yeah i know boohoo but seriously get over it shit happened. I’m upset eridan went grimdark and that he murdered two people and fucked sollux up. I ain’t gonna try and say he aint no villian. I ain’t gonna go out of my way to try and say “nooo he’s a precious baby who did NOTHING wrong” he had reasons for his murders but his murders were wrong and he was stupid and he died and he deserved it end of story. And I fucking LOVE him, hell I cosplay the bitchtit. I adore him and i’d smooch the hell of of that fishface of his. 
but there aint no way i can even try to say he’s an innocient bby who didnt do anything wrong 
Now what was Gamzee like when not controlled by aranea? 
image
Angry, pissed off, he was a bitch, an asshole. He cared for nothing kurloz had to said, he just wanted to do what he needed. 
When controlled? 
image
constantly had a dopey smile and only said honk and had no reaction to anything at all what so fucking ever, so almost like he was on drugs again. 
every time after he was released from said controlling he went insane again 
because he’s gamzee. that’s what the juggalos do, if you remember how their blood type was raised / taught / how they were BRED TO BE OVER TIME OVER THE WATCH OF HIC. (and the white guy i guess?) AND IN THE END THEIR RELIGION WAS BASED AROUND LORD ENGLISH TO ENSURE THAT THEY, ONE OF THE STRONGEST CLASSES OF TROLLS, WOULD BE ABLE TO GET LORD ENGLISH UP AND ARISEN IN ORDER TO DESTROY EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING. 
I mean 
Yeah go ahead and love gamzee, hell **I** love gamzee for who he used to be and the fact he makes a kickass villian. 
I hate who he is. He’s a cruel mean evil demonic murderous douchebag 
stop victimizing him 
you’re like the people who are victimizing the cops  in ferguson right now, LITERALLY 
they KILLED SOMEONE and don’t get shit for it, and people are trying to excuse it 
gamzee KILLED MULTIPLE SOMEONES and youre trying to say he shouldnt get shit for it, just like those people with those cops 
because boohoo protect the babu wahwahwah blahblahblah 
until hussie ends up releasing the final update, you need to shut the fuck up and accept the fact that all gamzee is right now is an insane murderous abusive clown with no regard for anyone except lord english. 
Just stop trying to blame shit on terezi and say ignore terezi and say that she’s the bad person here or that she doesn’t deserve respect / pity because she does and she’s gone through SO MUCH SHIT DURING THIS COMIC THAT IT’S PITIFUL.
One friend was killed, another lost his ability to walk, she gave up on her scourge sister cuz she was a bitch and even tried to get revenge for the two friends said scourge sister fucked up, lost a whateverthefuck karkat was to her, then had to deal with tavros’s death, who knows how she felt about feferi’s, and then she had to kill her scourge sister which sucked worse than hell because SHE REALLY LOVED HER, LIKE, BFFSIES OR WHATEVER, EVEN THOUGH THEY DIDNT TALK TOO MUCH ANYMORE, then was put through an abusive and horrible relationship that destroyed her emotionally and mentally and had negative physical effects on her, and then because of the abusive black relationship (that, please correct me if i’m wrong, gamzee initiated?) she lost dave, who was her matesprite. Had to go through almost everything that was going wrong in her life by herself, and then had to go through the self-loathing that came with meeting latula, comparing herself to her ancestor, seeing how AWESOME and RAD and HAPPY and SUCCESSFUL her dancestor was, and knowing she was ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LIKE HER, even though ALL of her friends were JUST LIKE their dancestors pretty much. 
and finally she fucking stood up for herself, after ALL OF THIS BULLSHIT SHE WENT THROUGH 
you’re gonna go and say 
that she deserves 
nothing 
and that gamzee is the one who should be pitied 
and that terezi is to blame 
you see, just— 
just no
and it’s disgusting that you dont see what’s wrong with what you’re saying
the thing about hussie, is that he makes characters realistic, relateable, so scarily much so that they pretty much could be REAL due to how he has made them act, think, speak, how he has made their personalities, their flaws, their ups nd everything between. 
and yet. 
you’re saying. 
that’s she’s to blame. 
I can not fathom how much i hate people like you and that kind of fucked up, shitty, bullshit thought process 
because so any people treat real abusive relationships like that in the real world, and i know PERSONALLY how it feels to have my abuser victimized due to lies and bullshit JUST like this 
and it’s fucking disgusting 
and this is the shit that needs to stop, out and inside of this fandom 
this fucked up perspective that the abuser isnt to be held responsible for their actions 
especially with gamzee like seriously stop victimizing the villiam like 
just 
no
stop 
that’s the kind of bullshit that 99% of this fandom hates about this fandom thats actually about 60% of the hate 
the rest of the 40% being a mix of shipbashing and character hate and just people in general, like the assholes that don’t seal their makeup or just being mean. 
but just 
please 
no
stop 
stop trying to victimize one of the most evil villains and love him for being a piece of shit instead of trying to act like hes not a shit head
