Being fat carries with it a lot of cultural baggage. At the same time, fat people, especially fat women, are supposed to pretend we don’t exist or that we’re not fat. I can’t count the number of times thin people have made reference to fat people or fatness in a negative or joking way in front of me, from the petite woman sitting next to me at the coffee shop complaining about fat people on airplanes, to my friends who routinely make jokes about their “inner fat kids” coming out when they eat a lot, to the women in my family who compete to see who can look the thinnest in family photos. Sometimes it feels like I’m not even there, or that I’m not supposed to be. - Lisa C. Knisely

I think people need to realize that it’s okay to like stuff and not have a deep reason for it

You can like a character because they’re cute, not because you identify with them
You can like a ship because you think they look good together, not because of a deep emotional bond

You can like a song because it’s catchy, not because of the meaningful lyrics

If you like it that’s okay, you don’t have to have deep reason or meaning behind it

I wanted to try the EAH box-style art, so it was time to dust off my Rumpelstiltskin OC girls again! :x I can’t get them looking quite to standard but it was a learning experience. there’s something very freeing about scribbling all over the place! also, bonus card versions.

went ahead and gave them slight redesigns, including biting the bullet and doing a custom baroque pattern instead of borrowing one. …though in retrospect Milly’s earrings really should be thread spools instead of wheels, arrrrrgh
