***This blog can sometimes be very NSFW***
I'm Ashley.
I'm 22 and I am an illustrator and a recent graduate of the School of Visual Arts.
I am a Pisces, an INFJ, and I stan for FFIX so hard. No shame.
In this blog you can expect to see whatever I feel like posting because I decided it's too hard to try and categorize this thing further than "inspiring art and badass clothing mixed with politics".
My favorite things are books and painting, and I love music of most any kind though lately I have been especially addicted to Nightwish and Loreena McKennitt.
I also have an art blog, which can be found at
Feel free to check it out, promote me, and what have you.

I might be up for a raise soon at work, so excited <3 

Mo’ money, mo’ money! <3 

Then I’ll hopefully be able to get my own printer sooner and actually be able to save some of my paychecks. Even a little bit helps!!!! 

I complain about it but overall I love my job and I think that the possibility of this is proof that it shows. :)

A Death Metal Magical girl to go along with my viking ladies [x] [x]

Despite the fact that my original viking magical girl was me sharing some personal feelings about how I feel about my favourite genre of music, I got of bizarre hate or at least a bunch of people getting super snotty at me about that Valkyrie Yuuki comic existing already. Because hoW DARE I do my own version dealing with my own personal feelings about how I feel. 

So since viking/pagan/folk metal is where I got when in a good mood, death metal is where I go when I’m pissed. So I like this idea of these magical girl being the cavalry that gets called in when she gets tough. She’s fly in when she hears someone talking shit, spit blood in their face and then deliver the heads of her enemies to the feet of all our lovely viking girls.

[tagging for blood and gore. Let me know if I need to cover any more tags] 




Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust

"We are going to lay down to join our dead brothers and sisters from the womb, rather than donate this time and effort into helping the sentient and suffering."

Again, none of you were at immediate risk to be aborted. You’re not survivors.

Also, don’t you fucking dare appropriate the word ‘holocaust’ for your own selfish, ignorant “activism” you disgusting, anti-Semitic, misogynistic garbagebags.

the eternal battle with internalized misogyny



here’s an example of how insidious this is:

If you were one of those young girls who was simultaneously told that she was smart and talented and loveable for being smart and talented but also told that men were smarter and more valuable than women, you might grow up rejecting anything even vaguely feminine because you didn’t want to be mistaken for weak/stupid/ girly, which you know are bad things.

So you might have a whole lot of tastes that you thought were intrinsic to your personality, like hating the color pink, that are really internalized misogyny. You might grow up and discover some girly stuff that is GREAT like Sailor Moon and realize that you don’t actually hate sparkles and flowers and pink after all, and wonder how different you might have been if you hadn’t been taught from an early age that being a girl was distasteful.

For instance.

oh look the realization i’ve been having for the past few years

My ENTIRE LIFE until a few years ago. This shit is toxic and you don’t even realize it’s there until one day you do and it’s the worst. I’m still trying to work through it in several instances tbh, especially where MAKEUP is concerned.
