I’m reblogging this again because I love the message behind it and I think it needs to be passed on.
My mother let us choose. My brother and I decided that religion just wasn’t for us. She reacted neutrally and we were not baptised, nor did we make our first holy communion.
My sister chose religion. She woke my mum up every Said “its time to go to church”. She was baptised at 8 years old when she was able to do it for herself, read the relevant parts herself, and knew the choices she was making rather than it being made for her. And she was so happy. Religion should be a choice, and one that you are fully consenting and happy to make.
She’s now 12 and she still has the cross that was a gift at her baptism above her bed, and still reads her little bible from time to time. She doesn’t attend church any more, because she doesn’t feel that church is necessary to have a god.
I am an atheist, as I have stated. But I’m here for her if she ever wants to talk to me about her religion and all things associated.
That is how religion should be. For everyone.

Coming in 2018 is Disney’s next fairy tale mythology animated feature film, set amongst the South Pacific islands, rendered in a ‘painterly-style CGI’ (think the Paperman short): and y’all are going to LOVE IT:
The main character will be Moana Waialiki, a sea voyaging enthusiast, and the only daughter of a chief in a long line of navigators. When her family needs her help, she sets off on an epic journey. The film will also include demi-gods and spirits taken from real mythology.
A few of us at work have started “DECEMMER,” (where we draw mermaids for the month of December)…so recently I’ve started doing a series of sketchbook comics about different kinds of merpeople. Here is the first one, about the Mermit-Crab.
Anna and character traits shared with other Disney princesses.
THEHIDDLESTONEPIDEMIC’S EMERGENCY COMMISSIONS! A little late now, but something is better than nothing.

Since only one of my friends bought a commission last month ((and gave me twice what I asked for)). ((Scan to come eventually since I finished it at her dorm in copics and she took it and its now pinned with a magnet to her door frame…)) I didn’t want to resort to it, but my grandmother paid for November’s rent. If I can’t make December’s rent of $365 by the 16th I will more than likely be kicked out and sent a 7 hours drive back home. Its not a hard goal, I just need your help. I don’t want to go back home and return to the job I had before and listen to a condescending co-worker tell me how she knew I would be back. ((not willingly but she’ll take it as a victory and I may have to punch her the moment she opens her mouth)) Not to mention I have arrangements to move again in Jan-Feb with another friend who could have a good job lined up for while I look around for a place so I can do an apprenticeship for tattoos. C:
I have two possible jobs soon, I just need to contact the managers for either of them and see what’s going on. The problem? My phone is out of minutes, my bank account is in the negatives because of bank fees. Not to mention no one I know has a normal phone instead of a cell phone.
What am I willing to do? Anything! Fanart, your fan character, NSFW, your D&D badass or your totally original OC. Your NaNoWriMo cast and crew or your Skyrim Breton. Slashy, fluffy, tie you up to the bed yumminess!
Shoot your wants and wishes to my email firstname.lastname@example.org or into my tumblr ask box.
I don’t plan on increasing prices for having up to 3 characters in one piece. If you want more than that though, I think we can work something out.
