Alex has been sad she hasn’t seen a specific Didney cat in the park for months
She’s really pissed that we just stopped by his spot and I spotted him sleeping in a bush in 5 seconds
Anonymous said: I have a question about the Kane Chronicles... what is Sadie supposed to look like? She's described as being fair-skinned and having light hair and blue eyes, and I know blue eyes/light hair/light skin =/= white, but in her official portrait she has straight blonde hair and is very pale. But I thought she and her brother were black? If I drew her like her official portrait, would that be whitewashing? I'm really confused.
Kids with parents of different races sometimes favor one parent over the other rather than looking mixed, per se. It’s rare, but not unheard of, and the Kanes have a white mother and African-American father. Sadie’s described as the splitting image of her mother, as well as pale enough that people are surprised that she and Carter are siblings, so I wouldn’t call it whitewashing if you drew her like her official portrait. I do prefer drawing her with more AA features, but that’s a personal preference.

The interesting thing about "fuck" though is it is just so flexible (in american dialects). You can use it as nearly every part of speech. As a result, however, we don't use much else. As a reader from America, the use of swears in American Gods sounded very natural to me. -A linguistics major
I agree. The glory of fuck is all the things you can do with it and all the things it can do. It’s an unbefuckinglievably useful swear word (used just there as an expletive infixation).
