Happy birthday to me I am posting MORE art today. Straa ref, finally...
Look at them. They are made of Straw and Cloth and their name is a pun on Scarecrow and I LOVE them they terrify everyone. The only person with a CHANCE at convincing Wally to go to therapy (a repeated failure) and probably my smartest toonkind character wisdom-wise

hi my reader friends lithub has a new syllabi section that has some great (u guessed it!) syllabi from much beloved writers like ocean vuong and ross gay here's the full list that i have already added half of to my tbr:
ekphrastic poetry with victoria chang (featuring works of john ashbery, joy harjo, paul tran)
the literature of obsession with julia may jonas (obsession as transformation, destruction, catharsis and form)
place, space and landscape with alexandra kleeman (featuring didion, okorafor and hernan diaz)

hybrid poetry with ocean vuong (traditions, innovations and possibilities featuring bhanu kapil, rimbaud, clifton)
multigenre experiments in form with paul lisicky (for writing that explores connections between genres)

okayy (some of) ed's tattoos!! disclaimer that this isn't that accurate and i just tried my best to squint at what these could be....the placements and sizes are off as well but maybe this can be a little helpful? (he does also have a ship tattoo a bit lower on the chest but i didn’t have any pictures of it for this....)

Oh my gosh. I just found this website that walks you though creating a believable society. It breaks each facet down into individual questions and makes it so simple! It seems really helpful for worldbuilding!

not to harp back to a few days ago but the whole "taking phone calls in public/loud music in public/playing music and videos outloud in public is rude etc. (the list could go on)" argument is not only absurd,
(not all public spaces are going to be silent its is unrealistic, outside cannot cater to every single person as everybody has different needs, but this is not me dismissing there are concerns for people who may have sensory 'issues' or may be bothered by loud sounds)
but has ties to racism and classism, especially considering that many nonblack and white people call the police about "noise complaints" on black and brown people and poor people because the music being played at a party is 'too loud' or music from a car is being played 'too loud', which leads to them getting arrested or killed.
It also has links to gentrification, it is known that people who do complain about a community being too loud are clearly not familiar with the cultures in that area and that loud noise being a nuisance is a clear sign you are coming into a culture that isn't yours
anyway i think some of you need to read the article linked because the influx of these types of arguments is concerning.

so im very busy but haven’t posted new stuff for ages sssso here! a sneak preview of the next RGB outfit :D really wanted to do a retro TV feeling look incorporating more natural hues to contrast his start as exclusively highly artificial colours, but as his relationship with Hero grows (who wears very natural colours) his own design spectrum broadens...

Sorry that this post is long but I would appreciate it if other white people read it and thought about it. I've been reading a lot of posts and the tags on them and I just want to make it very clear that this conversation isn't really about Ray getting 'attention' or his talent getting acknowledged. We should not be minimising this to “we need to acknowledge that Ray is an excellent guitar player” because everyone knows that, all you need is ears. True, it went largely unappreciated by fans at the height of mcr’s fame, but at least that's different now. What we're talking about now is about so much more than that - in fact, part of the problem is Ray getting reduced to nothing but the guy who shuts up and does the solos. We're talking about a pattern of behaviour that has been so deeply rooted in this fandom for so long that it's almost invisible to white people. It's a collective problem but it's perpetuated by individuals and needs to be addressed at an individual level first before it can begin to change.
I will acknowledge that, at least in my circles, things have started to change a little bit this tour in regards to people noticing him and discussing him beyond just his solos. But on the flipside that's only highlighted the larger issue, which boils down to how differently Ray is treated from the rest of the band. This is a consistent pattern. If he's not being ignored, he's behind separated out and set apart from the others - either being put on a weird pedestal or given suspiciously backhanded compliments.
Back in 2020 when I'd be lucky to see three posts about him a day on my dash I used to spend a lot of time scrolling through old inactive blogs to queue Ray pictures. Back in the pre-breakup days, if he wasn't being called "princess fro fro" he was being called ugly or he was the target of straight-up racial slurs. There was a weird narrative that he like, lowkey bullied Frank or took more credit than he deserved for mcr's guitar parts (which is painfully ridiculous and only proves that nobody paid attention to a single word Ray's ever said). Until very recently, the punchline of one of the main "jokes" (quotation marks because the word joke implies it was ever actually funny in the first place lol) in this fandom relied on Ray being at least casually homophobic. And these were blogs that posted Ray - I can only imagine how much worse the people who actively didn't like him would have been.
Nowadays, I post a lot of Ray content so I see a lot of tags from people outside my circle of mutuals. Let me tell you, there are Patterns. First of all, there's the classic "tags that completely ignore Ray to make the Ray post about Frank and/or Gerard instead." But more and more often what I'm seeing is if he's not being infantilised, he's being treated as some hyper-masculine, omni-competent, suave sex god or something - each of these things are equally reductive and dehumanising - and each of them are different manifestations of racist stereotypes and common fandom attitudes towards people of colour. Sure, Frank also gets weirdly infantilised a lot, but in a very different way - Frank is woobified in the way people often treat their fictional faves out of affection and horniness, whereas Ray is just reduced down to a personalityless nice guy - something that is also very common with fictional characters of colour. Then there are people who act like he's some kind of long-suffering untouchable genius who puts up with the little weirdos in his band because they worship his talent or something, as if he's not on equal footing with them as their peer and creative partner. And then you get the people characterising him as some kind of rough macho domineering dude because he's…tall? I guess? And plays guitar with confidence? Or is it just because he's brown.
I just..genuinely want you to sit down and think about a reason Ray might be singled out and separated from the rest of the band like this.
Is it because he's quiet in interviews? Mikey was always quieter. Also, Ray has done a lot more interviews than you think, they just haven't been circulated by fans as much. Also, he's literally the second-most featured band member in lotms - you know, the almost sole source for their fandom-driven personalities back in the day.
Is it because he's less feminine than the others? Both Mikey and Frank regularly present as more traditionally masculine in their fashion choices and mannerisms etc. The only thing “more masculine” about Ray than the others is...his body type I guess. There’s a whole conversation there about the intersection of gender and race and racist perceptions thereof.
Is it because he's private and keeps out of the public eye? So does Gerard.
Is it because people historically found him less attractive than the others? I shouldn't have to explain that that was the racism all along (yes, I know there's no accounting for taste, but Ray was regularly and actively mocked for his non-white features, and noughties beauty standards, especially in the alt music scene, were overwhelmingly white and racist. I regularly get tags to the effect of "when did Ray get so hot???" and honestly it's pretty telling that he's only widely acknowledged as attractive now that he's lost weight (whole other important discussion on fatphobia in this fandom here btw) and his hair has changed texture and beauty standards have shifted so certain racial features are fetishised rather than mocked.
Is it because he wasn't involved in one of the iconic bandom boylove duos? News flash, all "ships" are made up fan theories. Rpf and/or tinhatting is based on what fans notice and what rumours they perpetuate. Besides them kissing on stage a few times to make a point over 15 years ago, you know frerard lore because people talk about frerard lore. You know petekey lore because people talk about petekey lore. The truth is nobody cared enough to pay attention to Ray back then. (To be clear, this isn't me trying to tinhat anything about him, I'm just once again pointing out the obvious disparity in how Ray is treated compared to the others.)
I consistently see people acting baffled at how he's been behaving this tour - skipping or bouncing around the stage, eating his solos up, being physically affectionate with his bandmates. I can tell you he has literally always acted like that. Sure, this tour is special - he's certainly a lot more confident than he used to be and seems happier than ever, but really the biggest thing that's changed is now we get full footage of every show so it's literally impossible to overlook.
I also see people acting baffled when others point out the way Ray's been mistreated by fandom - being shocked that anyone would crop Ray out of band photos etc. I guarantee you that almost every single one of you has reblogged pictures where he's been actively cropped out, because some of the most iconic Frank-and-Gerard pictures that constantly get passed around on here are just that. "But how would we know" - sure, it's not your fault, but it's a small example of the way the more blatant Ray erasure from the past gets passed down to new fans and perpetuated by them unknowingly in turn. Cropping him out of pictures is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of how his talent and personality and significance to the emotional heart of the band has been overlooked. I can't tell you how many iconic well-known quotes from interviews or paragraphs from Not the Life it Seems directly precede facts about/quotes from Ray that nobody seems to have heard.
So again, this is not really a popularity thing - it's hard to measure but I'd say in the past few months Ray's overtaken Mikey in terms of mass popularity, at least on tumblr. You don't need to performatively post once a day about how Ray Toro Is God or how much you want him to rail you or how much you want him to rail your white fave because "he's the only one who can top" (you Realise how this sounds right?). I'm just asking you to confront your internalised biases and the external biases ingrained in the culture and history of this fandom, and start treating Ray the same way you treat the rest of the guys. He's not an untouchable god and he's not a sunshine cupcake, he's just Some Guy who's really fucking good at guitar. He's a proud stay at home dad, he's cringe as fuck, he loves to cook, he listens to podcasts about fucking Apple products for fun, he writes (very) shitty poetry, he takes his sons to women's rights marches, he invests in bitcoin, he cries when his mom sends him postcards, he drives a douchey car, he loves children's cartoons, he's a corny liberal just like the others, he loves his friends wholly and openly. Just…please acknowledge the history of racism in this fandom, think about how you as an individual might knowingly or unknowingly perpetuate it, and try to do better. And please just treat him like a human.

Ok so it seems like the bulk of minecraft technical skills can be sorted into five Big Categories, which can then be applied for worldbuilding purposes:
Survivalism: this is stuff like knowing how to find and get resources, how to craft items, what all the mobs are and how to fight them, etc. Just a good working knowledge of the core mechanics of survival minecraft, including basic resource farms. The extreme of this is hardcore players like Philza.
Building: if you can design and build a beautiful base without following a step-by-step tutorial, this one is for you. This is also where most major endurance projects go, like draining a monument, terraforming a mountain, etc. This is Grian, along with many other hermits.
Redstone: basically binary coding, scaled up to however high your expertise can take you. Minecraft is turing complete, which makes redstoning a complete skill in itself. IMO most automated farms go here as well even if they use minimal redstone, along with structures like world eaters and lag machines because they rely so heavily on technical mechanics. Think MumboJumbo.
PvP: the ability to fight and win against other players, rather than just against mobs. Includes physical skills like good aim and high click speed. Also includes understanding the fine details of specialized battle mechanics like armor, shields, potions, healing items, and end crystals. Technoblade is a good example of this.
Movement: the ability to get from one place to another quickly, using whatever means possible. Includes parkour, elytra use, water bucket clutches, speedbridging, etc. I would also argue it includes speedrunning techniques like making nether portals with a bucket and triangulating end fortresses. Dream is this.
Anyway, if we're layering the usual minecraft low fantasy/cold war military/dystopian aesthetic over this, these categories could translate to professions and lifestyles such as:
Survivalism -> terrain guides/explorers, artisans, farmers, naturalists, homesteaders. People who contribute to their community's ability to be self sufficient, likely drawn to small settlements or solitary nomadic lifestyles.
Building -> architects, landscapers, infrastructure designers, construction workers. Probably involved in largescale projects with varying degrees of authority, most likely found working in a major city or for a wealthy patron.
Redstone -> research scientists, engineers of various subspecialties, mechanics, industry specialists. Might work alone but more likely on teams within larger operations. May or may not have scruples about how their work gets used.
PvP -> soldiers, mercenaries, gladiators, bodyguards, strategists. Societal role will depend on career path, ranging from captive in a fighting arena to high-ranking general. Relationships with others will vary accordingly.
Movement -> scouts, messengers/couriers, assassins, spies, bounty hunters. Very likely to operate alone or on small teams because other people tend to slow them down. Has potential to overlap heavily with PvP or survival lifestyles.

canon things we know about the umbrella academy
luther used to marry viktor’s action figures at the age of eight
reginald used to watch the kids sleep and monitor their brainwaves
at some point, grace became ‘mom’ instead of ‘grace, the new nanny’ to all of the children
five was thirteen years old when he found his siblings’ bodies
klaus is the only umbrella native to the usa, coming from an amish community in pennsylvania; luther is from sweden, diego from mexico, allison from south africa, five from ireland, ben from south korea and viktor from russia
viktor cried when his siblings stepped on ants when they were children
the same kid hated oatmeal so much he killed minimum three nannies at the age of four
klaus broke his jaw when they were twelve after falling down the stairs wearing grace’s heels, and had to have it wired shut for eight weeks
grace helped the children pick out their own names
viktor realised he was trans after falling in love with sissy in the sixties
diego boxes under his comic book superhero name, the kraken, and in claire’s bedtime stories, allison calls luther his, spaceboy
diego’s preferred form of conflict resolution is a dance battle
hargreeves considered ben ‘easily manipulated’
both klaus and luther got kidnapped without any other members of their family noticing
after ben died, his family remembered him as the best of them who could do no wrong; klaus, who spent everyday with him, more accurately described him as a ‘loveable asshole’. all of them remember him as loving his family fiercely, and being the glue that kept them together
allison starred in a movie with sandra bullock
with viktor speaking russian, diego speaking spanish and ben speaking korean, it’s highly likely that hargreeves made a point to have them learn the languages their birth mothers spoke
reginald forced all the kids to read shakespeare, the odyssey in ancient greek and insisted on ballroom dancing lessons
sometime between season 1 and season 2, klaus learned how to drive
allison speaks seven languages, and five knows both ancient greek and italian
grace helped diego with his stutter
before he travelled back in time and met dave, klaus’ longest relationship was two-weeks long and primarily because he was tired of sleeping rough
ben and diego made allison’s teddy say ‘luther smells dad’s underwear’ as kids
diego told klaus that licking a battery would give him pubes when they were eight, and klaus believed him
klaus’ special training in the mausoleum was meant to make him too afraid of the ghosts to function, so reginald could control him better; reginald also killed him there at age thirteen, and possibly earlier
viktor’s violin once belonged to reginald’s late wife
diego’s ‘vigilante shit’ was a trauma response
allison was the first of the umbrellas to become a parent, and diego will be the second
ben almost certainly knew that klaus was dying and reanimating, as they spent sixteen years together after his death, and apparently never mentioned it
ben died at sixteen, and stuck around as a ghost for a further sixteen years before going into the light
it was a rule that nobody could speak at mealtimes, and they had to listen to various lectures on the radio
the children got half an hour on sundays for fun and games
the kids used to sneak out of the academy to go and get donuts at griddy’s
five used to get five stars in all of his performance reviews, although luther, hargreeves’ apparent favourite, did not
diego considered viktor’s book unforgiveable, but forgave him for ending the world in 1963 after he apologised
klaus has died fifty-six times by the age of thirty-two
ben died in something called ‘the jennifer incident’, although we still don’t know what it was or exactly how he died
luther spent four years alone on the moon; solitary confinement is considered torture by the united nations after fifteen days
luther wrote poetry on the moon, and self-harmed
diego has a fear of needles
klaus is now physically the oldest sibling, whilst five is mentally the oldest
allison rumoured either luther or patrick to love her
reginald told the kids at ben’s funeral that it was their fault he was dead
diego and klaus used to huff paint as teenagers
five spent somewhere between forty and forty-four years in the apocalypse; his contract with the commission was for five years, and we know he broke it before it was complete
as an old man, five had a moustache
luther, five and klaus all have problems with substance abuse
five and viktor were best friends growing up, as were allison and luther
luther got allison a locket with ‘A + L’ engraved on it when they were teenagers
allison rumoured herself onto a soccer team at one point, despite being homeschooled
luther wanted to go to summer camp, but reginald told him he would never go
none of his siblings know that diego shut grace down in season 1
five singlehandedly invented the formula for time travel
luther fell for the nigerian prince scam
