Anonymous asked: I'm an artist only beginning to get serious about it as a career and I was wondering how you would rate your experience of website sales sites like society6?

I would rate my experience very highly indeed, especially society6. I’ve had an account on there since August 2012 and I’ve made this much so far:

Which is pretty good considering all you have to do is upload the image! When I first got started I wasn’t selling very much but now I make £50-80 a month which is really helpful. I’ve also got a redbubble account but I haven’t been on there as long. I definitely recommend it, you just have to endlessly (and shamelessly) self-promote to get noticed and spread the word :-)

Women’s grueling, lifelong, losing battle to transform themselves into magical, flawless creatures with Disney hair and 15-inch waists and massive ham-lips is not for the benefit of women. And when men say that they “love to see the woman underneath the makeup,” they’re not saying they want to see your leg stubble and greasy bangs—they’re saying they want you to be better at hiding your maintenance routine. Because the maintenance spoils the fantasy.

everyonesmadherex asked: I completely agree with you- the changes in dialogue make all the difference and it just ended up being ridiculously uncomfortable to watch and completely too far. In the book the only thing that was shocking was the location of where it was happening, as it was made obvious that Cersei was only saying no due to where they were and quickly changed her mind. The change makes NO sense at all- one ridiculous unneeded change to shock the audience has completely ruined Jamie's character development.

Yes you’re absolutely right, I agree with everything you say. I don’t know if the producers were trying to overcomplicate Jaime’s character, or make us feel sympathy for Cersei, or show that they’re becoming more alienated from one another, but they could have done those things without using rape. It’s really pissed me off, I’m just glad I’m not alone with my outrage! I’ll continue to watch the show but I just can’t believe they did that scene so crudely

Anonymous asked: the sex in the book was not consensual. she hit him, she said no. he ignored her and carried on. she gave up fighting, that is not consent.

Ding dong you are wrong!

She was initially reluctant but then she consents - "Hurry," she was whispering now, "quickly, quickly, now, do it now, do me now. Jaime Jaime Jaime." Her hands helped guide him. "Yes," Cersei said as he thrust, "my brother, sweet brother, yes, like that, yes, I have you, you’re home now, you’re home now, you’re home." 

In the show all she says is “don’t” and “this is wrong” - the dialogue is very different. I don’t think he rapes her in the book, I just don’t, I don’t know what everyone else thinks but that’s how I read it. The show was subtlety different, but those little changes made all the difference.

j-laus asked: I totally agree on your opinion on last night's episode of Game of Thrones. Jaime literally had his hand cut off in order to save a woman he didn't even like from being raped and then he just goes and rapes the woman he loves? Ugh I was so upset and they completely did it to just make us feel uncomfortable. It totally changes his character. Glad so many people are saying this lol.

I thought people were going to say I was overreacting or whatever but it REALLY bothered me and it just didn’t make any sense with Jaime’s character who has been progressively redeeming himself over the last series and then he goes and does that and it doesn’t make SENSE and I just don’t understand WHY they had to change it, they were probably trying to highlight Cersei’s isolation or something but it was so unnecessary and awful, it does nothing for the story at all and URGH I’m so mad. I’m so glad I’m not the only one.
