Asking for help is a GOOD thing.

I am seriously using EVERY SINGLE TAG I use for this, because this is important. A cry for help should not EVER be ignored, and the person ASKING for help should never be made to feel like they are somehow LESS for NEEDING that help.

If you are shot, you go to a doctor. If you break an arm or a leg, you go to the doctor. You don’t feel ashamed for needing help THEN, why should you when the pain is INSIDE you? When it is a literally LIFE THREATENING injury/illness? And yes, people, it IS life threatening. Or do you think they were just playing with the noose around their neck? Or the bullet hole in their head? Or maybe the slit wrists and the mountain of fucking pills in their stomach.

SERIOUSLY PEOPLE.

Do you know WHY so many people don’t get the help they need? Because there are dickholes out there who are mocking them. Who dismiss the cries for help as a “phase” until the person finally gets to the point where they think “why bother?”

And then those same assholes have the nerve to say “I don’t understand…what happened?”

YOU happened, asshole. You and the rest of society who have pushed them down one too many times, without even a backwards glance, much less a helping hand to get them back on their feet.

Their blood is on YOUR hands. And don’t you EVER fucking forget it.

 

**Note: To those of you who actually reach out to those who need help, this is NOT directed at you. And please, never change that part of you. We need more people like you.**

First off… no one panic, I’m not suicidal. Yes, I get down and feel like wtf is the point at times. I hate having to work when I know life is short and I’m not happy at my job and I keep thinking.. no one cares. If I died tomorrow, there’d be some poor schmuck […]

Random showing off post.

Decided to take a few random pictures, and I suddenly remembered this little pretty. Ladies, Gentlemen, and everything in between or neither, allow me to introduce Style:

One of my best friends gave her to me. Bought her at some trade show thing, I think. It’s been a couple years, I don’t remember for sure. I’m not sure how much use she’d actually be – I don’t know how strong the blade is – but she’s a pretty little thing.

[When Love Dies] Blooper.

Okay, so one of my beta readers, Erwin, is obsessed with Vikings. He’s constantly suggesting I add more vikings to whatever I’m writing, regardless of  genre/format/etc.. Don’t ask me, I don’t get it. I like the mythology, runes, and the way Chris Hemsworth looks as Thor, but that’s where my interest ends.

Anyway. So while writing Chapter 2 of When Love Dies, I came to a block in the flow, and Erwin once again started suggesting that I add vikings. This is what came from that. Enjoy.

Sharing Saturday: Holy crap, Batman!

A very special Sharing Saturday! I’ve always been lucky with my friends, but I hit one of the jackpots here. Dave decided to draw one of my characters for me. It’s not finished, but he gave me permission to share the preliminary sketch with you all, so…

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce Kerry:

I got a little too excited and did a little coloring with Paintshop:

(The gold is her glau shining around the colored contacts she wears.)

Nowhere near as amazing as it’s going to be when Dave is finished with it, but it was fun and I am excited to see where it goes from here.

On a side note, if you guys need some artwork done, go check him out! He’s still new to wordpress (I bullied him into getting a blog just last night), but he’s good!

The magic of Gackt.

For those of you who are not familiar with the artist Gackt, he is a Japanese rock singer. Lovely voice, gorgeous everything, but good lord, the man cannot dance, and some of his videos are just…no.

I introduced a new friend to Gackt’s music tonight. Warned him about the videos. He went watching anyway. He was lucky. He found the videos that weren’t “No.”. I had to point him to one of my favorite “WTF” videos of his. It’s the music video for “Vanilla” (feel free to look it up for a giggle). His reaction was as follows:

“HE WENT SUPER SAIYAN!!!”

Yes. Yes he did.
