There. All done. The new blog has been made.
I’m not going to delete this blog, though, because I would lose a lot of good things. It’d be like erasing part of my history.
P.S. I can’t believe they took the Redux theme off of the Theme list :c Well, at least I managed to copy and paste the coding so I have it saved.
Okay, I realize this hilariously late for Asexuality Awareness Week (which was last week), but due to unforeseen stressors, it didn’t really get done in time.
Anyway! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while, and I’m proud of myself of actually getting a six page comic done within a week. (Not that it’s really anything super fancy, but it’s better than nothing lol) I do apologize for the massive ugly text wall that is page four but I had a hard time figuring out how to convey it visually while being kind of pressed for time.
oh and the occasional copy/paste, I’m sorry for that too
Enjoy! Click on the separate pictures if the text is hard to read.
Korra, this fight is not over.
No but seriously let’s talk about how frikkin deep this scene is. She is honest to god convinced that she is about to be crushed to death and that Vaatu would win. How hopeless does it feel when you’re sure your’re about to die? How hopeless do you feel when you realize you’ve not only let yourself down, but everyone else in the world too? And not just everyone in the world, but everyone for the next ten thousand years! And that’s even worse than dying, because you are sure that it’s all your fault.
Not only all that, but she was on the verge of death on her own. Korra didn’t have any true friends while she grew up in the compound; it’s only when she comes to Republic City that we see her develop the relationships she needed all along - the ones that were unattainable during those 17 or so years at the compound. Meeting Tenzin, Pema, Jinora, Ikki, Meelo, Mako, Bolin, Asami, and so many others gave her the something she didn’t have. But I think deep down, she knew she couldn’t rely on them forever; she would need to solve some issues on her own. That’s going back to this scene here:
What has passed still remains ingrained; it can’t be erased so easily. She feared beginning alone and, I’m fairly certain, she feared having to end alone.
Abusive Expectations - Makes impossible demands, requires constant attention, and constantly criticizes.
Aggressing - Name calling, accusing, blames, threatens or gives orders, and often disguised as a judgmental “I know best” or “helping” attitude.
Constant Chaos - Deliberately starts arguments with you or others. May treat you well in front of others, but changes when you’re alone.
Rejecting - Refusing to acknowledge a person’s value, worth or presence. Communicating that he or she is useless or inferior or devaluing his or her thoughts and feelings.
Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.
Degrading - Any behavior that diminishes the identity, worth or dignity of the person such as: name-calling, mocking, teasing, insulting, ridiculing,
Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.
Terrorizing - Inducing intense fear or terror in a person, by threats or coercion.
Invalidation - Attempts to distort your perception of the world by refusing to acknowledge your personal reality. Says that your emotions and perceptions aren’t real and shouldn’t be trusted.
Isolating - Reducing or restricting freedom and normal contact with others.
Corrupting - Convincing a person to accept and engage in illegal activities.
Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.
Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.
Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.
Gaslighting -A form of psychological abuse involving the manipulation of situations or events that cause a person to be confused or to doubt his perceptions and memories. Gaslighting causes victims to constantly second-guess themselves and wonder if they’re losing their minds.
it’s like a road map my abuser used on me.
holy shit that’s like, exactly my stepmom
Every American should watch Jon Stewart. The world would be a better place.
…and on a completely different note, perhaps I should make a new ooc side blog for my oddandaelita blog because this one is still too associated with my oddthepurplecat blog (mainly because this still has followers from that blog on here) and I really should just stop updating this one. I’ve been thinking about it for quite a while now, ever since I switched RP blogs.
