Point of Sex returns, thanks to my friend Nymphaneth who was inspired by Pelor’s own act of wanton vandalism into making a few necessary changes. Let’s class up this joint!!
And here we have it, folks - the final page of Chapter 0: Light and Shadows.
I had a blast, learned a lot, and with any luck/mercy/nuclear accident giving me mutant powers, I’ll do a better job in Chapter 1: Penumbra, when we get into the meat of Point of Singularity’s story. Believe it or not, it’s not all drinking and near death situations (though that is like, 70% of it).
I want to thank everyone for their support so far - this is my first webcomic and it’s been trying at times, but without the support of fans, friends, family etc. I’d really have not gotten far. I loves you all. <3
Wtf is femdom? That’s not a word! xo I can sketch some gender neutral poses perhaps- or dynamic ones at least. Some comic-relief poses perhaps I’d have to ponder it a bit. Srsly though, what is femdom?! And can you define the gender-neutral bit? :3
Femdom’s basically female domination in a BDSM sense, of which I’m not judging, just not (obviously) the idea I’m looking for.
By gender neutral, I may have misspoke…I mean more like less stereotyped poses. I have a very strong, typically forceful female character who is in a relationship with an intelligent, rather reticent young man so poses where a woman is fainting into an man’s arms or being rescued from a fire, or even lovey-dovey cuddling, isn’t really suitable for these two. If anything, she’s pulling him out a fire.
Any sketches would help, but you don’t need to go to all that trouble!
Last one tonight, I promise.
But it bears mentioning that I sent out a call for less female-male stereotypical poses…less fainting women, less “let me protect you” men, and the first suggestion I got (apart from some nice chums here) was “If it’s femdom you want”—-What?! When did an equal, gender neutral pose for a couple turn into femdom?!
EDIT: So for an example, I was sent a picture of an old woman hugging a man. The woman is hugging the man. Hugging the man. That’s femdom?!
So, either female warriors aren’t wearing enough clothes, or they are a hundred million times braver then male warriors — I won’t go outside naked, let alone into battle.
Why is it so insanely hard to find badass couple poses? More pertinently, why can’t I find ones where the woman doesn’t look like a fainting maiden?!
I will never understand why people call Cell Saga Gohan “Teen Gohan”. He’s only 10-11 years old.
So, unrelated to anything I usually reblog, but yeah. DUDES WHY
<Pelor sits in a room, doing something.>
PELOR: (something about what he’s doing, expresses an emotion?)
<Something happens, either suddenly or not. Pelor is now another emotion.>
PELOR: (Comments on what happens? I don’t know. I’m tired.)
This is so hard to shade IDGAF anymore. ;__; (Seriously though, I’ll get to it, but here, dammit. Here.)
The full main cast of PoS (minor spoilers, but nothing serious, don’t worry). Proving once and for all that Pelor has friends (no he doesn’t just please don’t tell him).
(For those of you with good eyes, you’ll note Gal’s been changed up a bit re: hair, skin.)
My highschool experience in a nutshell. :)
I like how they still call Greenview Market convenience store Park’s <3.
Memories flooding back.
Recently, a friend of mine has been having trouble with the The Children’s Aid Society of Hamilton (CAS), a local branch of an organization dedicated to protecting children from poverty, abuse etc. A more than worthy organization, it has bettered the lives of thousands of children and families but another side of the story is forgotten, trampled underfoot by broad assumptions, prejudice and often, plain spite. My friend had her baby taken from her after someone (I don’t know who), alerted the CAS to “abuse” which wasn’t occurring. I can’t begin to imagine why they would claim it, whether it was out of genuine concern and ignorance or pure malice (which has been known to occur in the city I live in, more times than I care to mention). After obtaining a doctor’s note that stated that no abuse had occurred, she is still waiting and still without her baby, stuck in a well-meaning yet disturbingly bureaucratic limbo that is, before my eyes, tearing her to pieces. Former friends hurl names at her, spread rumors about obscene and abusive things she “did” to her child, attack her personally and harass her on and offline. They exploit her with webpages dedicated to miserable, untrue slurs and laugh at her misfortune, assuming that CAS involvement is instantly equitable to guilt.
How do I know it isn’t? Let me tell you a story.
