It’s the first day of October, so obviously I did 4th of july fanart. Clearly. This is based on my journeys through google looking for July imagery yesterday. And then a patriotic sailor scout was formed. I’m not quite sure how it happened. Anyway. Presenting Georgina Washington, patron of the Fourth of July and protector of Freedom and Bald Eagles. Her powers involve plastic and credit cards and she carries a rocket launcher.

I’d like to practice my readings today, especially my first custom spread! If you would like a free reading, please feel free to send to my ask and I will get to you at some point soon. 

If you’d like the custom spread, please do the following: 

1. Include either your zodiac sign or your birthdate. Additionally, you can include a different greek element (water, air, fire, earth) that you personally feel associated with even if it is not reflective of your zodiac sign’s designation. This chosen element will be the element I assign to you for the reading - your personal intuition and belief on this matter, if you have a strong opinion, will work better for the spread. 

2. Think of a question and write it down in the form “What can I do about my situation regarding X?”, or similar. This is very much a spread about taking personal action and being advised on how to approach a situation. Some examples: 

Not: Will Sam ever fall for me? But: What can I do about my romantic situation regarding Sam? 

Not: Will I get into college? But: What can I do regarding my chances of getting into the college that is right for me? 

Not: Should I tell my family I’m gay? But: What can I do about my situation regarding my family and my sexuality?

You can choose whether or not you tell me this question - if you do, I will read tailored more towards it, but if not I will read more cold. That’s okay! 

3. Tell me whether or not you would like this reading to be completely private, or if I can post a writeup of it later with your name removed on my blog. All anonymous askers will be replied to publicly. 

Also, please remember that I am very (less than a month) new to tarot, and if you would like a more informed and practiced reading, consider paying for one from a professional. queenofchalices and thetarotlady are both users I follow who provide a lot of great materials for beginners and give excellent readings, and there are many others as well. 

Can’t wait to hear from you! 

this me 

hint you can ask me on this blog too

WELL as a non american and july baby, I hope it ain’t gonna be eagles and “AMURICA” themed for that month xD

*GASP*

Are you insulting our great national day of drunk sunburned people watching fireworks???

kidding. Again. I feel for you non american folks. These months did kind of end up biased towards Northeastern America (‘cause that’s where I live) so I could do snow and an actual spring and fall and such (and matching fashion!), but I am trying to stay mostly unassociated from holidays and whatever else (spoiler: December is not going to be all about Christmas either!)

Debating starting a new series on the months. 

I wanted to do monsters but i also wanted to do something a little fashiony, so, thought I would combine them and do pseudo tamer things? Not sure yet. 

Anyway. These are obviously the first two, i have plans for more, but I was wondering if anyone else had an opinion?

Any daytime people have opinions?

May and June! I know you all have been waiting super excitedly. 

May is my birth month, so I get he gets the fancy pants. Those are the rules. 

And I apologize for any June baby who isn’t into weddings, but June -is- the wedding month. Also: peacocks. June has both Alexandrite and Pearl as the birthstones because I couldn’t find a definitive answer on which one it was anywhere. So. Both it is.

Human beings took our animal need for palatable food … and turned it into chocolate souffles with salted caramel cream. We took our ability to co-operate as a social species … and turned it into craft circles and bowling leagues and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We took our capacity to make and use tools … and turned it into the Apollo moon landing. We took our uniquely precise ability to communicate through language … and turned it into King Lear.

None of these things are necessary for survival and reproduction. That is exactly what makes them so splendid. When we take our basic evolutionary wiring and transform it into something far beyond any prosaic matters of survival and reproduction … that’s when humanity is at its best. That’s when we show ourselves to be capable of creating meaning and joy, for ourselves and for one another. That’s when we’re most uniquely human.

And the same is true for sex. Human beings have a deep, hard-wired urge to replicate our DNA, instilled in us by millions of years of evolution. And we’ve turned it into an intense and delightful form of communication, intimacy, creativity, community, personal expression, transcendence, joy, pleasure, and love. Regardless of whether any DNA gets replicated in the process.

Why should we see this as sinful? What makes this any different from chocolate souffles and King Lear? By

Greta Christina (Sex and the Off-Label Use of Our Bodies) (via sexisnottheenemy) (via finkspiration) (via itswalky) (via rosalarian) (via teratocybernetics) (via coldalbion)

YES THIS

Not to mention the fact that it’s likely that part of what’s hardwired in terms of sexual urge isn’t just DNA replication but also social bonding for group survival, especially increased offspring survival!

ALL of your designs are really cool! Personally: I really like all of Kagemon's forms, malifmon's forms, a few of sebastimons, all of garusmon's forms, Mushimon's forms, excalimons forms, risumon's ultimate, gokiburimons, forms, kaizukomons forms, and ursamons forms. I also really like the kids' designs. they are interesting! :D

Gosh. You’re much better with the names than I am. xD

Kagemon is an early favorite for me as well. As is Malefimon’s final form. 

I’m glad you liked so many though! I tried to interpret them while keeping the original spirit of their storylines intact. 

On the disneymon thing, I think I still have a soft spot for the poohmons, though I gotta say that Usagi's reaction at Alice getting the digivice is SO PRESHOUS ASDFGHJKL

Thanks! Usagimon was always intended to be the guide/mentor type digimon based on the white rabbit. She was legitimately shocked when Alice ended up being her Digidestined because she had been told she wouldn’t be getting one. The only reason the digivice activated prematurely at all was because the evil digimon that was already nearby (triggering the safeguard). On her own, Usagimon had limited powers (she can freely digivolve to champion on her own) but with Alice she’d be able to get to much higher forms (as is obvious by her character sheet). 

Ehhem. Sorry. I like the poohmons too. A lot of them worked out pretty well.
