I was sure I was gonna scroll down and the last panel would just be the artist sitting there doing nothing like every other “I’m gonna do a thing” comic I’ve ever seen so suffice it to say I’m very pleasantly surprised
"What’s interesting about good and moral people is that they actually have to try and function in a world that isn’t."
THERE. RIGHT THERE. THAT’S DINAH AND KARA AND WILL AND DICK AND NA YEO KYEUNG AND MIRIA AND BASICALLY EVERYONE I LIKE EVER who try to be a hold this light of justice and fairness and ‘the rules’ in a world that is constantly trying to put it out.
"What happens when you’re hungry? You’re not you."
That’s the message Snickers wants you to come away with after watching their new advertisement airing in Australia. And just so we’re clear, in Snickers’ world, “you” doesn’t mean acting like your unique and special self. It’s synonymous with being a sexist goober to every vagina-owning human that comes within your vicinity — because that’s apparently how you sell chocolate to men in the 21st century.
I’ve seen this in gifs from folks who both knew and did not know the context. Here’s the full ad. I am speechless.
What boggles my mind, amongst MANY things, is how nobody in the ad spoke up to point out that the ultimate message here was a bad idea. I’d be curious to know if the guys playing the construction workers knew the full context or if all they knew was that they were saying the female-positive stuff. Likewise were those women really random passersby or were they actresses (I suspect the latter) and, if so, did they know the full context as well?
This has come into my life from a direction that isn’t Weaves this time.
SO I GOT THIS EXCELLENT FIC FOR INVISIBLE FICATHON AND YOU ALL SHOULD READ IT.

I know the musical is based on an historical event, but it’s impossible to find much about it! I even went to the UU library to do research, and even though the librarian was super helpful, there was seriously nothing, so I decided to go with a Modern AU instead! I hope that’s okay. I was able to find out that originally a lot of the people who’d died were Watchmen (no women or persons, I think?), but I decided to go with the Guilds we know from the musical for the most part. If you don’t want to be surprised, there’s a cast of characters in the back.
Also, I know it’s more realistic to have everybody die, but that’s so depressing, so nobody dies in this! (Unless they’re already dead. I don’t mean to discriminate towards the differently alive or not-alive or undead.)
Nock Nock’s toestop runs sometimes look like pistons in a machine—speedy, rhythmic, and they can’t be stopped. If you have the strength, toestop runs are a great way to get a backwards skater out of your way.
