You know when an fast angry song comes on that you know every word to comes on and you’re in just the right mood that you’re eyes light up with the fire and angst of a thousand punk rockers and you just feel so alive

Look, without our stories, without the true nature and reality of who we are as People of Color, nothing about fanboy or fangirl culture would make sense. What I mean by that is: if it wasn’t for race, X-Men doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the history of breeding human beings in the New World through chattel slavery, Dune doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the history of colonialism and imperialism, Star Wars doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the extermination of so many Indigenous First Nations, most of what we call science fiction’s contact stories doesn’t make sense. Without us as the secret sauce, none of this works, and it is about time that we understood that we are the Force that holds the Star Wars universe together. We’re the Prime Directive that makes Star Trek possible, yeah. In the Green Lantern Corps, we are the oath. We are all of these things—erased, and yet without us—we are essential.

I think the next time someone gets confused as to possibly why people were hoping Katniss would be portrayed as nonwhite, this quote above is why.

Commission for May of her and Sarah's Neotp, Yvanna and Koji! May is such a sweetheart! Thank you again for commissioning me c:
[my commissions are still open]

Tang was lovely to work with and turned out this lovely piece, I’m really ecstatic!! This is the cutest thing I’ve seen in what feels like FOREVER, I am screaming omg. I would definitely recommend commissioning her if you’re able to because it is well worth it, just LOOK AT THIS!!
Yvanna and Koji look adorable in her style, I’m going to cry, it’s got so much charm and personality! I love how accurately their characters are portrayed here, this is such a super sweet scenario. This piece of work has so much energy and movement to it, which gives the poses so much dynamic and life.
I’m SO fond of the shapes here, the sharp angles offset by smooth curves is really sophisticated; the silhouettes of the characters alone would be interesting to look at. 
I love their clothing, it’s probably my favourite part, oh my gosh. The style and fashion is just spot on. They just coordinate so well together and the detailing is astounding, especially in the shoes! I love the scalloped edges of Yvanna’s dress, too. 
The colour choices here are so great, the palette is so gorgeous, the muted colours work so well, I love the blues especially haha. I really like the clean and minimalistic shading, along with the subtle and restrained texture, I love stuff that makes digital work a little bit reminiscent of traditional work.
Overall I am just enamoured by this, I could not have asked for a more beautiful piece of art! Gosh thank you again to Tang for doing such a fantastic job, I need to lie down to recover from how gorgeous this work is and how cute my OTP look!!!
