|Because MLP. Seriously.|
|My surprisingly successful fan fiction I have grown very proud of.|
Body Image - Not Surprised, Just Disappointed Eating disorders horrify me. When my sister was younger (honestly, I still feel this way) I feared she would become anorexic or bulimic. I know that there is a lot of pressure to look this impossible way. I think Photoshop is a wonderful tool that is horribly abused in modern society. We don't need to hide that extra weight. Verily, for example shows that women look great without this faking it. Sure, culture prefers skinnier than necessary, instead of accepting people for what their healthy weight is. Some people are naturally going to be heavier than others. It sucks, but that's how it is. No reason to go enforcing that image on anyone else.Body Image - Not Surprised, Just Disappointed by Tails-155
However, it's not just women. Yes, women are "expected" to look skinny, have perfect skin, shave, whatever, but this whole thing goes both ways. Men are expected to look strong,

The Tyrannical King - 6 - Endless Desert"So... w-what do we do now?" The befuddled plumber looked at his three koopa allies, still more than a bit surprised by his teammates.The Tyrannical King - 6 - Endless Desert by Tails-155
"We should find cover in one of these buildings. At least one has to be stable enough to rest in." The sage, robed reptile nodded.
"Any chances you have any food?" Iggy's stomach rumbled.
"Nothing fancy, but we should survive for a couple weeks."
A couple weeks. Luigi thought to himself. We're going to starve. Lemmy nudged the plumber who hadn't done the best job at hiding his concern.
"Relax. We have a plan, but we need to build forces."
"Forces? How would we do that? We're standing in a broken ghost town with a fancy flag." The only human in the group nearly spat. His anxiety getting the best of him.
"We have our ways." The magikoopa nodded.
"That sounds suspicious."
"Relax. We're on your side--"
"We're on the people's side." Lemmy interrupted. He turned to Luigi with a look of desperation in his eyes. "Look. I know what type of guy you
The Tyrannical King - 5 - Escaping Home"You two are smarter than I imagined." The magikoopa laughed. "You, in the middle. Come here." The shackles surrounding the three of them burst into white sparks and faded. "Luigi, correct?"The Tyrannical King - 5 - Escaping Home by Tails-155
"Up." The magikoopa gestured to the framework. Luigi followed his instructions, his chest weighing triple its normal. He approached the looping bottom of the rope.
"You will now call out anyone who could be hiding here."
"No. With this." A blue banner with two shells in the center, one orange and one green, both spiked, chest pieces facing inward, surrounding a rainbow star, materializes in his hands. "String it up."
Luigi does as instructed.
"A bit ostentatious, don't you think, Kamerin?" Iggy chuckles.
"They already think you're traitors, may as well build trust in the masses, no?" The veiled magikoopa sagely nods.
Lemmy grins. "You brat. You had me scared at first."
"I did what I must. If they knew I was leading you to an escape, someone would have followed. Just be g
Defeat.Depression isn't always sadness.Defeat. by Tails-155
Depression is apathy. Depression is a world where your friends are so
with trying to help you, that they stop.
Depression is being chained within reach of a key, and
having no desire to unlock yourself.
Hopelessness isn't always a world with no solutions.
Hopelessness is surrender. Hopelessness is a world with solutions
and zero drive
to fix the problems.
Hopelessness is being convinced you're worthless so often
That you believe it.
Hopelessness is being tied within reach of a knife, and using
that knife to hamstring yourself.
"I'm okay." Isn't always okay.
"I'm okay." Is avoiding an argument.
"I'm okay." Is pushing away those trying to help
because you can't handle
putting them through the same thing
"I'm okay." Is the delusion of saving your friends
by hurting yourself.
Defeat is surrender.
Defeat is when the heartless world
breaks you down so badly
that you freeze to death in the world's coldness.
The icy claws of a planet that has
To The Man Who Returned My Six CentsI only met you once prior, to my memory.To The Man Who Returned My Six Cents by Tails-155
I live in a world where the faces in the background
frequently fade before features become apparent.
My days are walking on heavily cracked glass with lead boots.
My heart weighs heavy with regret for my decisions that seemed like
College, a vehicle, applying for this horrible life sentence of a job.
My muscles weigh heavy with the exhaustion of
pulling more than my own weight.
My eyes weigh heavy with nights subpar sleep from anxiety
for my fear of paying loans and ineffective search of happiness.
My mind drifts to the existential.
Who will remember me, save my family--likely ending
if my luck for romance continues as-is.
Then you. Yesterday I gave you six cents to pay for your groceries.
So common an action
I don't even recall
what you purchased.
You told me you'd pay me back, but I declined that day, as I do.
Yet, today, here you are. You remembered me, if even for just a day.
For a day, I was something to someon

I like to try out various types of art. If you want to use full sized versions of any of my stuff for a project, just contact me by a note or a comment on the item and let me know! |
I do lots of favoriting and am very passionate about art and music. Feel free to message me and chat!
DO NOT EXPECT LLAMAS FOR LLAMAS! Since I favorite and watch pretty easily, I want my llamas to be meaningful gifts I give to people who do something really awesome or helpful! If you receive a llama from me, you've really earned it!
I REALLY want to thank everyone for favoriting my work... The volume is to the point, now, when I do my mass uploads that I can't thank everyone without getting marked for spam. As such, I can't thank you all independently now !
If you have favorited anything, from here on out, I REALLY thank you, and if there were no spam cap, I'd still probably dig through everything and thank you all. I may still try, but if you don't receive a message, I'm not being rude, I just can't thank everyone in any reasonable way!
My watchers are awesome! My favoriters are great! I just can't do it! I got 9 pages of favorites today (6/30/2012)! Definitely not complaining, but that'd be like, a day's worth of thank yous, since it's hard to tell when I can comment again.
I sincerely appreciate any and all support, and if I could hug you all, I would!
So, just because I don't thank you doesn't mean I don't 100% appreciate you doing what you have done for me. You don't have to, and the fact that you do is wonderful!
TL;DR: Can't feasibly thank all the people who favorite my work on your pages, so if you favorite my work, thank you thank you thank you!
