Have you ever wondered where books come from?

Well then, let me show you, because that’s what I do for a living.

Right now, it’s this time of the year, and the little ones have just freshly hatched:

You’ll notice they’re still blind and naked when they hatch. So I make them little coats to keep them warm during their first winter:

See how they happily line up to put them on:

See? Better. Now they’re ready to go and explore the world.

And if they make it through the winter and we take good care of them, they will grow up to be strong and wise like their older fellows:

So, in case you were ever wondering, now you know.

Merman

Because I could? Just a sketch at this point, but I think the world doesn’t have enough mermen. I would say excuse any anatomy, but it’s a mythical creature; prove to me my anatomy is wrong. ;)

Made with Mischief. I have to say I love the pencil tool in Mischief for sketching with.

Edit: And then I gave it some basic block colouring. I think I prefer the sketch… :/

Fic: His Loss

A fill for the kink meme:

Jack is asexual. Still together with Eugene, but not interested in sex.

NSFW. No spoilers.

“So. Jack. Because I am just dying with curiosity-“

Jody threw a pea at him. But life would have been a lot easier for everyone if Simon Lauchlan could be deterred that easily. He leaned over the table and spoke in an exaggerated stage whisper.

“I need to know. Does Gene’s missing leg open up a lot of new possibilities, if you know what I mean?” If his voice didn’t already give it away, the eyebrow bounce removed any remaining mystery.

Links to Help You Start Coding by azurethemes/salazharIn honor of opening my theme blog, I thought I’d make this post on learning how to code since many people ask where/how I started coding. This is not a tutorial on how to code a theme, but a list of resources on how to start learning HTML and CSS.
UNDERSTANDING HTMLThese websites are the one I used to learn and understand more about HTML and CSS. 
Code AcademyCode Academy teaches you HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, and more interactively. Their tutorials are great for anyone of any age. This site is my favorite and I definitely recommend it.
w3Schoolsw3Schools is what I like to call my online glossary. It has literally everything you need to know.
MAKING TUMBLR THEMESThere are many great tutorials here on tumblr on creating your own theme. Here are a few:
By lmthemes
By farahmir
By themesbyeris
By ettudis
By howtomakeasimpletheme
By buildthemes
Tumblr has also provided us with a document on creating custom themes and I suggest going through it. 
USING BASE CODESIf you wanna start coding themes, but you don’t know where to start, I suggest using a base code. I have a masterpost of base codes here, but you will want to use base codes that come with instructions like these two [ one | two ] so it’s easier for you to customize and understand the theme.
CONCLUSIONAgain, this is just a list of resources to help you begin coding your own tumblr themes. I will release another resources list with more external links that provides you with tutorials to make your themes even better. This one is just to help you start out.
Please like/reblog this if you found it useful.If you have anymore questions on coding, feel free to ask me!

What is 50 shades of grey about? And what's so bad about it?

aconissa:

50 Shades of Grey was originally fanfiction based on the Twilight series, which was then published as a novel (along with 2 subsequent books). It sold over 100 million copies around the world and topped best-seller lists everywhere. It’s about to be adapted into a film, set to come out early next year.

It follows a college student named Ana Steele, who enters a relationship with a man named Christian Grey and is then introduced to a bastardised and abusive parody of BDSM culture.

While the book is paraded as erotica, the relationship between Ana and Christian is far from healthy. The core mantra of the BDSM community is “safe, sane and consensual”, and 50 Shades is anything but. None of the rules of BDSM practices (which are put in place to protect those involved) are actually upheld. Christian is controlling, manipulative, abusive, takes complete advantage of Ana, ignores safe-words, ignores consent, keeps her uneducated about the sexual practices they’re taking part in, and a multitude of other terrible things. Their relationship is completely sickening and unhealthy.

Basically, “the book is a glaring glamorisation of violence against women,” as Amy Bonomi so perfectly put it. 

It’s terrible enough that a book like this has been absorbed by people worldwide. Now, we have a film that is expected to be a huge box-office success, and will likely convince countless more young women that it’s okay not to have any autonomy in a relationship, that a man is allowed to control them entirely. It will also show many young men that women are theirs to play with and dominate, thus contributing to antiquated patriarchal values and rape culture.
