I went to Ōkunoshima ‘Rabbit Island’ in Japan today - story goes that the rabbits were brought here as test subjects during WWII and released when the war ended. With no predators (cats/dogs/hunting are all banned) the island is totally overpopulated with rabbits. They are also super friendly, they chase you, beg, and climb all over you!
Do you guys even realize that this is from the musical Chicago and /not/ Homestuck?
Not being a Chicago fan must be so confusing. That person is right. It’s R-O-X-I-E.
help i’m dying
As someone who has seen Chicago on Broadway starring Anne Reinking, Bebe Neuwirth and Joel Gray, I have to say it’s R-O-X-Y.
…Because this is a picture of Roxy, from Homestuck. It’s “Roxy as Roxie”. It’s a Chicago/Homestuck crossover picture.
(The real giveaway is the Void symbol drawn into the “O”. See the little black swirly arc things?)
The real giveaway is Roxy’s specific symbol on the necklace. Harder to just accidentally come up with, more specific to the character.

#so many people still do not get this#the avatar is SUPPOSED to have attachments; the avatar MUST love others#and people talk about how aang ~never makes sacrifices~ but he loses SO MUCH#he sacrifices SO MUCH#he can never completely follow the spiritual teachings and guidance of his people. he cannot attain enlightenment#and he gains so much but he still loses that aspect of his culture and he’s THE LAST PERSON IN HIS CULTURE FOR SO LONG#and the show does talk about this. aang gives up power and he gives up total spiritual harmony#he chooses to love katara. he chooses to go to his friends and protect them.#zuko and aang’s storylines are deliberately designed as foils#zuko’s emotional quest is to find himself. aang’s emotional quest is to accept himself#zuko gives up physical trappings and physical power to gain spiritual strength and peace#while aang gives up spiritual power and enlightenment to gain the strength of attachments to other people#a sacrifice is still a sacrifice even if you gain other things#SORRY THAT IS A WEIRD TANGENT ANYWAY OK

this is in response to some shitty stuff i’ve seen on my dash recently. it’s super simplified, so if you’d like to know some more indepth stuff on how exactly it works, google it—OR BETTER YET actually talk to a mental health doctor psychiatrist person wow
grammar and spelling are really important to me. I actually study grammar and spelling in typing styles. It’s not important to me as “WOW THEY SPELLED A WORD WRONG” or “WOW THEY USED THE WRONG YOUR” but rather I look for repeating themes in typing styles and can link that to a grapholect–or an internet dialect/register [typing styles unique to certain parts of the internet]
For instance a common grapholect is the doge meme speak shit.
"Much grammar, so spelling, very grapholect. wow"
thats a very specific and deliberate way of typing. There is a correct way to type in this grapholect and an incorrect way to type in this grapholect, and I think that’s fucking cool.
How about we look at language rapidly evolving–due to constant need to type and communicate via text, and stop clinging to classist/ableist/racist/sexist/etc. old white guy’s language wet dream.
