Or Perhaps It's the Head that I Found in the Lake

23. BMC '13. Citizen of the World. Cosplayer|Writer|Actor|Artist

Please use either ZE / THEM pronouns for me, thanks! If you like eclectic tumblrs, you've come to the right place. This means I tend to reblog anything that catches my attention, whatever it may be (really). Otherwise all there really is to know about me is that I'm studying to be a neurologist, cook for a living until I earn my medical license, and spend much more time on cosplaying than is decidedly necessary. I also tag all of my posts obsessively, so if you ever need it, I'll gladly give you a list of my tags to tumblr saviour! Also, if you want me to see something, either tag it 'themidnightpost' or just submit it here! For the moment I'm here to procrastinate; and so far, it's working.

So I’ve got this thing now where if I’m working on a cosplay, decide to research a component of it, and find nothing, that I just need to do something to fill in that information gap. As you can see, the latest instance was Aoba’s jacket, so here is my latest contribution to the internet’s vast store of cosplay knowledge!

Please note: I am extremely experimental when it comes to making cosplay, and very much a “I wonder what happens if you do this??”/let’s-push-the-big-red-button kind of crafter, so my methods MIGHT NOT WORK FOR YOU. I really hope that they do, but I just wanted to put a warning out there nonetheless!

#fuck now i'm somewhat glad that i'm going on a two week streaming hiatus soon
#please be safe everyone!




  • as you may or may not have known, this guy and @ScrewPain were the guys responsible for swatting the creatures. this caused a shut down of schools, leak of personal information and innocent people almost got hurt because of it.
  • in this time, i’ve kept an eye on spiky’s twitter and he’s swatted several innocent streamers [he posts proof and gloats about it]  and plans to keep doing it. he and pain both think they’re invincible and it needs to stop.
  • pain said he’s going to pax and im seriously worried he’ll swat that place too, so i just want to post a warning to everyone.
  • i know that he is 100% serious who knows what other youtuber or innocent streamer they’ll do it to next. 




Please spread THIS version around so people are further informed.

#karkat's got a hug for you nepeta!
#askbox funtimes
#every hour is anon hour
Hey, I'm a trans girl and I'm very self conscious about my height. I identify with Nepeta the most out of any Homestuck character, and probably any character ever. But every height comparison headcanon anyone makes puts Nepeta at the shortest. Everyone always portrays Nepeta as being super short. I don't know why it bothers me so much. It's like, when you're tall and cute people are like aww that's so ironic you don't look like you'd have a cute personality. When you're short it just fits. :/

That’s the worst part of it all, I’m really sorry my dear D: I’m pretty sure it doesn’t help any, but I’m short as all hell and always wished I could have just a few more centimeters on me in the hopes that being taller would help people take me more seriously. 

The thing about headcanons though is that they are just that, only canon inside your head. Homestuck especially is great for that since there are so very few physical traits about the characters that have ever been specified/confirmed as canon, so they really are what you make of them. But just because a large portion of the fandom sees Nepeta as being the shortest doesn’t mean that the entire fandom is now obliged to do so as well! If anything, I really do think that talking about less popular headcanons would make for some really interesting discussions, since they’re a new way to turn peoples’ perceptions of the characters on their head without strictly disregarding canon. 

As for being tall and the impressions that come with it, I really am sorry that I don’t have any good solutions. The only thing I can say is to just be yourself, and those who matter enough in your life that you would want to keep them around will either realise that their first assumptions about you were incorrect, see you more for yourself and less for your physical appearance, or some combination of the two! I mean heck, when I was in elementary school I still appeared very much as a girl and was the short, temperamental asshole while my best friend was much taller, larger, stronger, and quite literally exuded cute. We all come in different shapes, sizes, and personalities, and while most people might still govern themselves by stereotypes in meeting others and their headcanons on fictional acquaintances, it’s slowly not becoming nearly as prevalent in society as it once was.

I wish you the best of luck, dear anon, and I am always here for you if you need someone to talk to!

#this situation has been really awful for her let's please do what we can!
Let's Help Gabby Back Up!


So I know I haven’t really talked about it on tumblr beyond a few instagram posts and a couple text posts but here’s my situation right now:

Sunday at approximately 4:40 my room caught on fire. Since my room is on the second floor and the fact that the firefighters had to essentially flood my room, water slipped into my parents room and living room thus essentially making my house uninhabitable. My room is completely destroyed- I’ve managed to rescue a couple of things but a lot of the things I’ve cultivated over the years are gone.

Because the firefighters had to break down the windows, last night my uncle’s company boarded up our house, so there’s no ventilation whatsoever. The house is completely damp, humid, and it’s highly likely there will be mold forming soon.

We were extremely lucky- beyond the fish in my room and possibly the fish downstairs, we got everyone and our cats out of the house. My mom managed to contact our insurance this morning and my dad told us that tomorrow we’re transferring to a hotel not too far away until the insurance company finds us another place to stay.

However right now, we are broke. I mean my parents have a bit of money but my mom’s check from last month never arrived because of some complications in the office and my dad gets paid per job he does- sometimes he doesn’t work for a week or more since the jobs vary. Currently they’re both returning back to work but we need whatever help we can get. 

My point in the end is that a friend of mine set up a gofundme and I would sincerely appreciate it if anyone who has a bit of money to spare can help out or if you just signal boost it would be amazing. I can’t do anything to give back but i will post pictures and the such to update everyone on our situation. My tumblr tag for this is house fire and I just went back and tagged anything relating to what happened.

I know a lot of you here know Gabby or at least have maybe heard of her, and it would be wonderful if anyone can chip in a few bucks or even just signal boost!

#this shit is not okay


Let us be vividly clear about this.

What the New York Times did to Michael Brown today was not merely slander. It wasn’t a case of a lack of journalistic integrity.

Highlighting that a black teenager was “no angel” on the day he is being laid to rest after being hunted and killed by racist vigilante forces is not an unfortunate coincidence.

The New York Times deliberately played into an archaic American tradition in devaluing both the merit of black life and the tragedy of black death.

They chose the day of his funeral, as his family, friends and activists everywhere have to grapple with a human being lost to pontificate about how he was “no angel”. Michael Brown was many things to many people; a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew and another black causality of murderous police institutions and today, amidst all the racist violence he, his loved ones and community have had to endure, he was going to finally receive the respect and moment of honor he deserved and NYT decided today, of all days, to tune in their audience onto wholly irrelevant facts about his life - that in turn, transform the very injustice surrounding his death and the following police violence that plagued Ferguson into a national panel about whether or not his death is actually worth mourning and their language suggested that to them, it indeed is not.

This was hardly an accident or mistake. This is the perpetual hostility that is met against black life in America. The consensus is that black people deserve no respect and for black life to be legitimized and honored, we must meet a list of prerequisites. Subsequently, if black people aren’t valued, neither are our deaths understood as tragic or murders seen as criminal action.

This has been the atmosphere of America since its inception and much has not improved.

#i don't know how else to explain this really
#wtf i love you tumblr




I bought my friend an elephant for their room.

They said “Thank you.”

I said “Don’t mention it.”

Is there a joke here that 15 thousand people get but I don’t?
