Bust Request 03 : Ashpaw (OC)
Oh my gosh, thank you! Thank you! Thank you! It looks great!
i wasn’t going to do this but,
Gather ‘round children i have a story to tell.
this is my niece.
She just turned seven April 8th. Some of you probably have seen this picture already but its one of the only ones i got of her so meh.
My niece is in the target demographic for MLP. She adores the show. Her favorite ponies are Pinkie and Fluttershy, and she can do any line from any episode if you ask.
Now I’m not gonna really go into detail, but this kid’s been through a lot. And the few times I get to see her, she immediately reaches for the remote so she can turn on the DVR. Pony is her escape from her life. She loves it so much. And she never really had anyone to share it with until she started coming over.
We sing songs together, color together, watch episodes together you name it. If it has to do with pony, we’ve done it. And it makes her so happy to the point that when its time to go back home, she doesn’t want to leave.
Why am i bringing this up?
Well I’ll explain. A few people know this story already but ill tell it anyway. My niece loves Equestria Girls, the movies and the song that was a parody of California Gurls. Now, one listen, she heard Pinkie say, “Bronies hang out too!” And she asked me what bronies were.
I told her they were men and women but mostly men a bit older than her who watched the show. She practically shit herself with excitement. She was ecstatic. “Show me! Show me!” She said. So I showed her pictures of cosplayers and videos from Bronycon and I swear I never saw her so happy in her life. She didn’t see these people as a threat. She didn’t think they were “stealing” the show away from her. She was so happy because there were people just like me who she could talk to, and not get shhhed or have to explain everything.
The next time I saw her she kept bringing me things: her Fluttershy Build-A-Bear, the toy Pinkie she got from McDonald’s, the Rarity brushable I brought her. I asked her why she was giving me this stuff and she said “Here! Now you can share these things with your brony friends!”
She wanted me to share these things with grown people. It’s kind of hilarious when you think about it, but it kind of warmed my heart. Because she doesn’t have much when it comes to pony stuff. (I buy her things when I can.) But she was so willing to let go of them for a while because she wanted me to share them with my brony friends.
Kids don’t care if grown men watch My Little Pony. Kids see me walk around in my pony shirts and run up screaming and giggling like idiots. They love the fact that they can talk to so many people about what they like. My niece barely knows anything about the brony fandom and welcomed it with open arms.
That’s how it’s supposed to be.
When kids are less judgmental then some grown people on here, that should really say something about you, and your attitude.
this is beautiful

I actually find this information REALLY HELPFUL when I visit someone else’s gallery and like their OCs. Not everyone is comfortable with fanart and few artists post whether or not they are.
Grow a whole fucking cabbage in the time it takes to do that.
Without a Judeo-Christian moral code in its society, Japanese scientists decide to play god.
this is a food sample. food samples are handmade FAKE food created for advertisement photography and display - all those pictures of delicious hamburgers in mcdonald’s ads & menus aren’t actual hamburgers they are fake ass food samples.
He’s pouring hot wax into cold water to form the fake food. which is actually very cool because it takes mad skill. do 62,000 people actually believe you can pour some magical liquid into water and create cabbage. this is why americans are so fat we can’t even distinguish wax cabbage from actual vegetables.
So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

Me 100% of the time. Luckily Ito help for my ADD when I was a child
- ADD and ADHD are the same disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder was officially renamed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in 1994. Many people use ADD to refer to Type One presented here, and ADHD to refer to Type Two, but they are the same core disorder.
- In many cases where ADHD carries into adulthood, it’s a genetic issue [My grandfather, mother, siblings, and I have all been diagnosed with ADHD], though this does not always occur.
hello yes this is me
more fun facts!
- there are a lot of talks about how ADHD is overdiagnosed, and that may be true for boys, but for girls ADHD is severely underdiagnosed.
- older studies mostly looked at hyperactive boys and that’s the perception we have of ADHD. because of this many girls will go undiagnosed until adulthood.
- most girls/women who have ADHD are inattentive type. they tend to be introverted, disorganized and daydreamers.
- girls will internalize these as personal failings and teenage girls have a much higher rate of suicide and self harm because of it
- ADHD is often comorbid with anxiety and depression, both of which are caused by the failings from having ADHD
- depression can present itself differently in people with ADHD. it’s more of a discouragement from constantly failing, but it can be just as debilitating.
- read this article from the atlantic: It’s Different for Girls with ADHD
yes yes i like this very much!!! i have severe combination adhd and this is a really great thing!!!
