Doctor Who, Homestuck, and other randomness. Mostly Homestuck these days.

You can call me Bii. Pronouns-wise, traditional female (she, her, etc) are fine.

Hi, Tumblr! Do you like art? Do you like art of characters you like? Do you like art of characters you like that you don’t have to draw yourself? Then I’d be delighted if you considered commissioning me!

I’ve recently had to cut ties with an abusive family, which means I can no longer rely on them for money. I have a safe place to go and a support network, but my goal is to be able to turn my love of art into a way to support myself. I ask that you all bear with me: this is the first time I’ve done this kind of thing so I’m still feeling out prices and policy (nothing will ever, EVER be changed without a customer knowing about it, by the by).

My dedicated commission page is HERE, including (in the title) the number of slots open, which I will try to keep as up-to-date as possible. Currently I’m only taking ten at a time, with larger pieces in the same order counting as more than one slot so I don’t get several huge orders and get overloaded. Ideally the wait will never be more than a month at most to both secure a spot in line and get your art. If you email me and spots are closed, I’ll keep your message in my inbox for when slots open back up again, but know that if you take this route it may be quite some time before you hear a response from me. 

Thank you all very much and have a lovely day!

Ink is one of my best friends in the universe and a lovely artist. You should totally consider commissioning him.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DON’T SCROLL PAST THIS.
Scarleteen is a vital queer and trans positive sexual health resource. Their staff do an amazing job of creating really comprehensive and helpful articles on literally every sexual topic you can imagine. They also provide live chats, advice columns, moderated discussion forums, and SMS-based peer support. This site has helped me on countless occasions, and I refer at-risk queer and trans kids to this site every single day.
Scarleteen is invaluable.
And Scarleteen needs your help.
During their annual donation drive this year, the site was only able to raise $1,500. Only fifty people out of Scarleteen’s 350,000 unique monthly visitors contributed to the fundraising drive.
This means that unless Scarleteen sees a stable, sustained, 50% increase in donations, the site will essentially be forced to go dark on May 1. No more new content, no more advice columns, no more forums, no more live chat, no more SMS support. 
This is devastating.
If Scarleteen goes dark, millions of young people, vulnerable queer and trans teens among them, will lose access to essential, fundamental sexual health resources. We cannot let this happen.
Please, please, please donate to Scarleteen. Consider making a recurring monthly contribution if you feel that this is within your means. Even $5 or $10 a month will go a long way to helping this very, very deserving organization.
And whether or not you’re able to donate at this time, please signal boost this and spread the word. Scarleteen does incredible, very necessary work, and they need our help.

living space to rent in/around dennis/yarmouth desperately needed

ETA 1/31: THE SITUATION HAS BECOME DIRE, THE NEXT STEP AFTER THIS IS “I NEED A PLACE BECAUSE I AM ON THE STREETS” (details further down), I STILL DO NOT HAVE ANYWHERE

needlekind:

needlekind:

hello, my name is courtney, i’m 17 (turning 18 in mid-february), i have a severe anxiety disorder, and i really need a place to stay.

i moved away from my abusive family in july of last year and i’ve been renting out a room from the mother of a friend of my littlest brother’s ever since, but things have gone south. the long version is here (ctrl+f for “the full story”) and here but here’s the shortish one:

my landlady (who also has legal guardianship of me) dropped a roommate on me a couple of weeks ago, telling me this girl would be coming about three hours before she showed up. since then, she has been treating me like shit—ignores me completely if i don’t push and push a question, refuses to acknowledge politely-worded simple requests turns everything into yelling at me and fighting, calls me slurs, lies to my landlady about what she does and says to me, then turns around and asks me to do things for her. the biggest thing is that around the time she moved in, my wallet went missing. a week later, i found some of the cards that were in it in her bag. she stole my wallet and i am still missing $70+ worth of stuff, but my landlady does not believe that i found the cards there and will not do anything about it.

i’ve tried to bring up this girl’s mistreatment of me to my landlady too and after a few incidents of not doing anything helpful, it’s culminated in an episode of her screaming at me about how everyone in this house hates me, she doesn’t want me around (not explicitly stated but very implied) and neither does anyone else (explicitly stated), i have fucked up everything, etc. etc. etc. her solution to the problem of my roommate, instead of much-needed mediation, was to just tell us to not talk to each other ever and “respect each other,” and then yell at me about how i’m an adult and should know better (the roommate did not receive this treatment). she is playing favorites—her husband, who has defended me but usually ultimately has to defer to her, has told me that he thinks this—because this girl is like family to her and i, apparently, fuck everything up by existing. she does not have any intention of doing anything to help me, period.

this is not a healthy or stable environment for me to be in. my roommate is likely to keep stealing from me if she knows she can get away with it, and i am not going to be able to get help with anything from the adults in charge.

the important technical stuff:

the most i can pay for rent is $125 a week (or $500 a month, it doesn’t matter to me) because i only make $100/weekly but i have savings. i would be very willing to do services like housekeeping or childcare/babysitting (i work at a summer camp so i have experience) as well as paying rent, though.

as mentioned i have anxiety and as such am likely to keep to myself; i’m very quiet and will not be a disturbance. i don’t smoke or drink or do drugs, but do not mind if people in the house do those things. i don’t go out very often, just for work and a writers’ club on tuesdays. the size of the room does not matter but i need access to basic utilities like a washing machine, wi-fi, a place to put food, etc. i will buy my own laundry soap and stuff if need be.

please send me an ask if you can help me—i can give you my email if you’d rather use that but please send me an ask for it.

if you don’t have a place for me to stay, maybe consider (along with reblogging this) commissioning a theme/page/html thing from me to help me with my savings, but things are not desperate enough that i am in need of donations.

thank you very much!

an update: my landlady has recently threatened to kick me out in explicit terms, and if things continue in the direction they have been, i have zero doubt that she’ll act on it. legally, she can’t throw me onto the streets until i’m 18 because i’m a minor under her guardianship—but i’m turning 18 in less than three weeks, on February 13th. if I get booted, there is no back-up plan. at best i could stay a couple of nights at the home of one of my teacher’s parents. i don’t drive, couch-surfing isn’t an option, and the previously mentioned place would be very short-term.

i need to do something before things get down to the wire.

my (abusive, toxic) mother in florida just sent me an email—my landlady messaged her and she wants me out. she has not spoken to me. i am turning 18 on the 13th of february, there will be nothing stopping her from putting me out onto the streets, i am running out of time.

i need to stay in the dennis/yarmouth area so that i can continue attending this school; if i switch out of the district i’ve been in my whole life in the second semester of senior year while i’m already struggling to pass most of my classes, i am not going to graduate—i know myself and my limitations well enough to be confident in that. i could potentially go as far as hyannis but not much farther; that’d involve taking the public bus to school every day and for those of you not in the area, the public bus system on the cape is garbage.

please, i need help, i am running out of options and don’t know what to do.

Please, please reblog this. Courtney needs all the help she can get.

Hi, this is bii. I know it’s been an age since I’ve posted about this fic or really shown up on tumblr at all, but I figured people might be interested in knowing that I finished the drafts for Chapter 7 and the Epilogue.

I mean, it’s still going to be a while until it’s posted, I don’t have arts yet and only Chapter 6 has been beta-read and I haven’t really been much in contact with Roach this last year… but there’s an end and it’s written and it may or may not satisfy everyone but it satisfies me.

So there’s that.

Man, I don’t even know if anyone still reads this anymore.

!! Wow. I’m honestly impressed by this level of commitment. I’m so happy you’ve kept working on such a long fic. when i get hit by hiatuses like that usually I never manage to get back into the story. *applauds*

AND I’M TOTALLY STILL READING THIS. eeeeeeeee.

Well, I did get stuck for about a whole year about two-thirds of the way through Ch 7. Not because I didn’t know how it was going to go—I’ve known for a long time the broad strokes—but because I wasn’t sure how to get there along the way.

I think what ended up helping me get back to it was… well, the thing about this story is that more than anything it’s about parents and children and that in the end made me want to push on.

I’m glad that Bilbo Baggins exists

Because in the book, the dude was pretty firmly middle aged when his crazy-ass adventure started

He was settled down in the house that belonged to his parents and had done precisely jack shit with his life

It gives me hope that maybe some nutcase wizard will eventually show up and be like yo

you’re a burglar now

don’t even care that you didn’t roll rogue homie we got dragons to slay and kingdoms to save
