The idea that nerds are awkward and don’t ever socialize is the stupidest stereotype ever because like

Have you ever seen two nerds together?

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A CONVENTION?

Give us a topic of a common interest and we’ll socialize way past what normal people can tolerate.

Just because we don’t want to talk to you doesn’t mean we don’t want to talk.

"you’re too young to know what your sexuality is" said the straight person to a queer teenager 

"he’s such a ladies’ man" said the straight person about a 6 month old baby that doesn’t know what a lady is

A QUOTE

"What a woman - oh, what a woman!" cried the King of Bohemia, when we had all three read this epistle. "Did I not tell you how quick and resolute she was? Would she bit have made an admirable queen? Is it not a pity that she was not on my level?"
“From what I have seen of the lady, she seems, indeed, to be on a very different level to your Majesty,” said Holmes coldly.

im not even an artist and these prices are hurting my feelings 

This is what I have to dig through every time I look for new jobs to apply for.

For non-artists, let’s give you a little perspective.

For me, an illustration takes a bare minimum of 6 hours. Mind you, that’s JUST the drawing part. Not the research, or the communications, or gathering information. Just drawing.

That’s if it’s a simple illustration.

My art deco or more detailed stuff can take 20+ hours each.

Even simple, cartoony things still take at least 3 hours.

Let’s go with the second one. 2 illustrations for $25. Figuring 6 hours each. 12 hours total, for JUST the drawings. That’s approximately $2.08/hour. 

Asking these prices is an insult. But what’s even more hurtful is there are people out there that will take these jobs. Which only encourages rates like this to be acceptable. And there are people who will try to say these are just what you have to do to get started.

I believed that. So my first coloring gigs were just $10/page. The day someone offered me $25/page for just flatting work, I realized just how wrong I’d been. I’m still not making the rates I’d like, but now I refuse anything below $25/page. Because there is value in my time.

In any standardized industry, even ones that pay piece rate over hourly, these numbers are criminal.

Do your fellow artists a favor. Never accept jobs like these. There are others that pay legitimate rates. Or at least closer to legitimate.

Such baby bullshit. Don’t even get out of bed for these rates.

    If you are an artist who wants to make money off their art, I highly suggest you buy The Graphic Artist’s Guild Handbook. It goes in depth about copyright issues and even contains contract and model release templates. The 2013 book *I believe* states the average professional charges $72 an hour. This article calculated that to make a 40k annual salary you would need to charge about $60 per hour.

  After graduating from Art Center in 2012, I think I asked for somewhere between $35-45 an hour and got laughed at by multiple big name clients, which was infuriating, sadly expected, and terrifying with over $100K worth of student loans staring me in the face. If they tell you it will be “great exposure” that’s a red flag. Ask yourself how their exposure can compare to your Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Flickr and Facebook pages combined? 

And when you do get a decent paying gig, PROTECT YOURSELF. You have the right to negotiate and revise a contract. Do not start a job until you have a contract signed. If they don’t provide you with one, MAKE ONE. And make sure you have your bases covered. You can specify in a contract that maybe two revisions are included in your cost, and if they ask you to revise the piece more than twice, they will have to pay extra. In terms of payment schedule, I usually do the 50/50 Method (50% before, 50% after) or the 3/3/3 Method (1/3 before, 1/3 in the middle, 1/3 after all work has been received). Both of those are pretty standard in the industry, as they guarantee you will get compensated for your time, even if the job goes bad.

Remember you have a skill, and you have spent time honing that skill and you deserve to be adequately paid for that time and effort. You will have clients dismiss you because, honest to God they think, “Well, I could do that if I wanted. Hell, my five year old does it now.” No they can’t, because they didn’t, they don’t, they won’t and they probably never will. And good luck hiring a five year old. They can’t keep a fucking deadline.

And in a last ditch effort they’ll say, “But that drawing only took you an hour!” Son, that drawing took me 20. fucking. years.

10 Dollars for 1 minute of animation.  Oh my god my heart.  It took my team 6 months and a team of 12 to make a 4 minute short. 

The Graphic Artist’s Guild Handbook

I second this book! I’ve had it for several years now, and it’s been a HUGE help in my work as a freelance artist. It gives great advice on what to charge for different areas of art!

Fuck Percy! He was an asshole. #WeasleyIsOurKing

lmao wrong fandom sweetie

Percy was pompous, but he came to fight with his family in the end. Not only that, but Percy just chose the wrong side and had a different view from his family- much like Sirius Black.
It was Arthur who said the ministry was using Percy, and how do you think it makes a person feel when their own parents don’t think they get to a certain point based on their own abilities?
It was also Arthur who told him to leave, instead of trying to understand his son.

Percy was an ass, but then again, you can say that about Arthur too- who is supposedly one of the nicest dudes.

Just saying.

ok, I’m getting tired of explaining this…

THIS

is the INTERSEX flag. Got it? Intersex; It’s not a gender.

It is not the bigender flag.

It is not the bigender flag.

It is NOT the bigender flag.

I’m getting sick and tired of clueless dyadics using stealing our flag and erasing intersex people.

There’s also a few flags that are confused - for some reason - for the intersex flag:

image

This is the OII flag, and Australian intersex organization/group. Yes, it’s cool that this Intersex group has created their own flag, but it’s not the universal intersex flag.

…Oh, and for some reason, this flag

image

keeps being used (by dyadics) thinking that it’s the intersex flag. IT’S NOT. It’s “official” name is the Herm********* Flag. Yeaaah, no. Let’s not use this flag, EVER. It’s actually pretty disgusting.

If you’re going to include intersex people in your flag posts, which you fucking should, please at least know what’s the real intersex flag before you go around claiming you’re some kind of ~ally~ or thinking that you are doing us a favour. You’re really not. 

~Mod A

Update: Please don’t just like this, REBLOG it and spread it around. Lookin’ at you, dyadics.

Charlie Weasley loves to hang out with his big brother and good friend, Bill. Sure, they fight sometimes, as siblings are wont to do, but they both love adventure and the outdoors and bringing back creepy-crawley things that their father is just as fascinated in as them but that mum always yells at them to “TAKE THAT OUTSIDE, WHAT ARE YOU THINKING BRINGING THAT INSIDE OF THE HOUSE, FOR GOODNESS SAKE, BOYS, HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY IT!” And besides, it’s more fun to fight with Percy because, dang, that little kid just takes everything so darn seriously.

The first year Bill goes off to Hogwarts is so weird for Charlie because Percy isn’t interested in the same things Bill or Charlie are and the twins are wee little things still. Fun to play with sometimes but they’re just no good at conversations and they can’t tell Charlie cool things about the gnomes like how they enjoy the taste of children’s blood nearly as much as hags (mum swears Bill is making that up) or how werewolves can actually change at any time, they just only do it openly when it’s the moon to conduct surprise attacks during other times of the month (“William Arthur, you stop filling your brother’s head with such nonsense!”), so Charlie spends more and more time trying to find his own information on the creatures he’s interested in.

Charlie’s immediately sucked into a world he didn’t even knew existed and he spends his whole year with his nose stuck inside of a book soaking up information on various creatures, hanging out in the garden trying to find the smaller ones, sneaking out at night to see if he can find the nocturnal ones (“Charles, if you do not get in bed now and stay there…”). He realizes that mum was right and Bill really did make up a lot of stuff, but that just makes it all funnier. He finds out that gnomes do not sleep at the same times humans do and they have pretty good eyesight. But honestly, mum’s grip on his arm as she tends to his wound hurts a lot more than the bite did.

Important things:

For all the talk that goes on about how aromantic people can have strong relationships too, and that platonic relationships don’t automatically fall a tier below romantic relationships

it does not make you any less if you are an aromantic person who does not have that/is not interested in those relationships

You could have a super close friend or two you share everything with, or a group of casual friends that it’s fun to hang out with, or a batch of distant aquaintances you enjoy the company of now and then

Or you could be happier solitary and don’t feel a strong need for intimate relationships of any sort, platonic or romantic

And you will be no less for it.

I might personally get super angry when people assume aromantic people can’t have powerful and intimate relationships with people, simply because those are the relationships I am most invested in myself—but pulling the whole "how dare you say we’re not human, we have intimate relationships too!" is just as gross as the "how dare you say we’re not human, we have romantic relationships too!" angle we face from parts of the asexual community.

Our worth and health and humanity is not defined by how closely our relationships can mirror heterosexual monogamy
