Man, I really wanna do a rewrite comic of Pirates of Dark Water.

Like, CLEARLY there were some executive meetings to make Ioz nicer, curse less, and stop referencing whorehouses; to make Niddler less of a racial critique and more of a buffoonish stereotype; to make Ren paler, less “femme,” and more competent as a leader (rather than a naïve lighthouse boy who assembles a relatively equal TEAM); and to make Tula sweeter, more helpless/less competent, less creepy (ecomancers have… side effects that come with their skillset), less revolutionary, more “femme”/scantily clad, paler, and all-around healer/mystic/team girl. (AND to make the bad guys less threatening, though, interestingly for a ’90s cartoon, death— even onscreen death— was not phased out of the show entirely.)

I think it would just be awesome to restore some of that stuff, you know? A lot of worldbuilding clearly went into Dark Water, and it’s a damn shame the show never finished and so few people know about it. :/

Oh look, it’s one of my favorite cartoons ever.  Rewatched a few years ago, and holds up surprisingly  well, even for adults.  A must-watch for fantasy gamers.

Oh sweet childhood.

I used to get up at the ass crack of dawn every Saturday for this show.

If ever a show needs a revisit, it’s this one. Even if it’s just to finish the story.

Kissing is a human trait. […] The gargoyle equivalent is to stroke the hair and/or horns/ridges of one’s mate.”

I love pointing out that specific fact to people I’ve introduced to the show.

Developing the ability to piss other people off (or even to RISK pissing them off) without knuckling under is pretty much the Holy Grail of emotionally abused kids, I think. We are programmed to respond at the first sign of displeasure, and we don’t have the faith in ourselves and our decisions to weather the storm– or even a mild sprinkle– so we tend to freak out as if the world was ending if a cloud crosses the sun. We freak out about the possibility that we’re wrong, that we’re doing the wrong things, that we’re making the wrong choices, that we’ll make someone angry, because there’s this awful certainty lurking at the back of our minds that says “If you do the wrong thing, you will be in TROUBLE.” And being in TROUBLE is the worst thing, ever, because that part of our brain is forever three years old where our parents are our whole world and being in TROUBLE is the end of everything.

It takes a lot of practice to gain that sort of gut-level knowledge that we’re strong enough to handle this stuff and that the world doesn’t end if someone else is angry at us. It’s not an innate quality that some people have and some don’t; people who grow up in non-abusive homes learn it when they’re young, is all, and the rest of us have to learn it when we’re grown up. And it sucks, and it’s not fair, and it’s not fun, but there’s no getting around it, and you can do it, you CAN.

You can piss people off.

You can be wrong.

You can fuck up.

You can do stuff that everyone thinks is weird.

AND IT IS ALL OKAY. The world won’t end. You will still be a good person. And the likelihood is that most of the things you do WON’T be wrong, and WON’T piss people off, and WON’T be up-fuckery, and WON’T be weird, but if it is? The hell with it; fix it, if necessary, and move on.

this is still so much easier to tell other people than to feel myself.

I’m lucky that I did not grow up in an abusive household, but this is still relevant to me otherwise.

(via nineprotons)

I will say that I’ve fortunately developed to the point where it no longer makes me REALLY upset when I piss off people I don’t really know—casual acquaintances, that sort of thing. It used to, but not anymore.

Still getting used to that nobody in my household is going to yell at me/hate me forever if I screw up in some meaningless way (like forgetting to do a chore or spending the evening on the computer, which were the two big ones with my dad). And it’s to my great fortune in that regard that Kat and Kyle are both such chill people about… well, everything.

There is a lot of truth here.

This is why I cannot gauge, even today, whether I have annoyed or bothered people. Reading this was something of a revelation to me, as it describes me and my experience to a T. I am constantly terrified that I have Done Something Wrong, and that sooner or later people will Find Out What I Really Am (And That Is A Terrible Person).

I was once accused of pandering to my friends, of saying what they want me to say and not what I actually think. The thing is, it’s so innate, so ground into you to not annoy people or else they’ll abandon you that is is what you think at that time. For me, anyway, I find it incredibly hard not to agree to what my friends and people I care about are saying, if I am stressed and these people are coming across as assertive or aggressive.

It’s hard to live your life in constant fear, but there it is. It’s a screwed up survival mechanism, but it did help me survive the horrible times at home. It’s just hard to shake off now that things are so much better.

Now that Disney owns Marvel, can we have Tony Stark and David Xanatos getting into a snark fight when they try to buy the same company?

Relying on some seriously vague memories of a certificate and photo, I was finally able to find my maternal coat of arms (rather the one that always popped up when i searched). Well, at least the heraldic description of said coat of arms.

Bolden (Hyning, co. Lancaster). Quarterly, 1st and 4th, or, 
on a fesse gu. three fleurs-de-lis of the field ; 2nd and 3rd, 
per fesse dancettee gu. and vert three swans or. Crest*— 1st : 
Out of a ducal coronet or, a tiger's head ar. ; 2nd : A swan 
or. Motto — Pour bien desirer. 

Now I just gotta figure out how to to put it together. 

Some parts have got me really stuck, like the fucking fesse. In 1 and 4, is that a red fesse and the fleur-de-lis are on it, or are the fleur-de-lis  red and lined like a fesse? At least 2 and 3 are little easier to understand. I think. I’m pretty sure that a fesse dancette is a jagged line, which here divides the field into red and green. And then three gold swans. Though it doesn’t say anything about how those swans are placed, which does not help. At all. 

And is that each per quartered section or is it all just an overlapping collage?

ugh

I’m so happy the crest is simple.



The fesse is red and the three fluers-de-lis are gold and in a row on the fesse (if they were simply lined up like one, it’d say “per fesse” instead of “on a fesse”). And the fesse dancette is a jagged line, yes. As for the swans, there are three in each the second and third quarter, but I’m not certain how they’d be arranged within that quarter, but I’d assume two at the top and one at the bottom.

Hope this helps.

Ok, I’m possibly the worst daughtsman on Tumblr (I don’t even own coloured drawing impliments) but here’s a mockup of how I read the blazon for the shield (sans tinctures).

Pretend the rubber ducky jelly bean blobs are golden swans, and pretend the blobbish ice cream cones thingies are golden fluers de lis.

Holy shit, I think that might be it. Sure it’s been like 15 years since I saw the photo, but that definitely looks familiar.

Thanks a lot, that’s really great of ya.
