I’m not a Manic Pixie Dream Girl, I’m a Raving Harpy Nightmare Woman.
It’s finally done. I’ve wanted to redo the oldversion since… basically since I drew it.
Inspired by that post going around about mermaids being women who were supposed to drown.
THIS IS MY NEW FAVORITE THING ON TUMBLR GOODNESS
I wish my feed were only this.
I’ve only ever sen the second to last image. I didn’t know there was a whole series! This is FANTASTIC!
How do I get better at something?
Hey y’all, Cea here! Bright Hollow Medicinals has an indiegogo campaign going on right now to fund the start ups of our various medicinal gardens in Western Massachusetts. They will exist to further support our medicine making practices and also as places of healing, education and support. We seek to cultivate these spaces in a way that allows humans to see their own patterns and processes; that like plants, we experience growth, thirst, setting down roots, digging them up, periods of vibrance and silence. These places will exist not only as gardens but as places of healing, for consultations, for laughter, crying, insanity and growth. We seek to share these spaces with others in a way that is supportive, educational and informative by not only giving medicine and information, but through storytelling and introducing people to plants, allowing others to make informed decisions for themselves. Please check it out and donate if you can and share with friends! xo
This looks wonderful! I want it to exist, and then I want to go and help things happen. Make it happen, please.
(also, I may have jars for you guys)
If you ever feel bad about your own writing, just remember that one of the world’s most well-known works of classic literature is self-insert fanfiction where the author hangs out with his favorite poet and is guided on his journey of discovery by a Manic Pixie Dream Girl version of a woman he met twice.
i like this moomin friend
aaaaaaa i cant believe i forget she exists sometimes…… she’s so perfect
Instead of waiting in her tower, Rapunzel slices off her long, golden hair with a carving knife, and then uses it to climb down to freedom.
Just as she’s about to take the poison apple, Snow White sees the familiar wicked glow in the old lady’s eyes, and slashes the evil queen’s throat with a pair of sewing scissors.
Cinderella refuses everything but the glass slippers from her fairy godmother, crushes her stepmother’s windpipe under her heel, and the Prince falls madly in love with the mysterious girl who dons rags and blood-stained slippers.
Persephone goes adventuring with weapons hidden under her dress.
Persephone climbs into the gaping chasm.
Or, Persephone uses her hands to carve a hole down to hell.
In none of these versions is Persephone’s body violated unless she asks Hades to hold her down with his horse-whips.
Not once does she hold out on eating the pomegranate, instead biting into it eagerly and relishing the juice running down her chin, staining it red.
In some of the stories, Hades never appears and Persephone rules the underworld with a crown of her own making.
In all of them, it is widely known that the name Persephone means Bringer of Destruction.
Red Riding Hood marches from her grandmother’s house with a bloody wolf pelt.
Medusa rights the wrongs that have been done to her.
Eurydice breaks every muscle in her arms climbing out of the land of the dead.
Girls are allowed to think dark thoughts, and be dark things.
Instead of the dragon, it’s the princess with claws and fiery breath
who smashes her way from the confines of her castle
and swallows men whole.

“Born in Niigata, Japan in 1939, Ozuma Kaname began studying traditional Japanese painting under his uncle, artist Sakai Soushi, from a young age. Moving to Tokyo at the age of 18, he trained as an art dealer while working at a printing company and eventually moving on to the publishing industry where he illustrated tattoos. The majority of his work continues to be tattoo-related along with other traditional Japanese themes; and often serves as a source of inspiration for master tattooist Horiyoshi III.
