(are you alive?)
((Yes! Never fear, I am alive and well, I’m just in the middle of both a job hunt and a bit of an art slump. This and the main blog are by no means being ignored, and I actually have several asks half-finished, they’ve just been delayed by real life stuff. Thanks for the concern, anon.))
I adore the idea of Jewish Vantases, because it adds to the whole "signless is basically Jesus thing" and I identify with it. But in the post about middle names, it's pronounced are-ee-el, not ariel like in the little mermaid. Then again there's also the fact that it's hard to turn certain Hebrew words into English because English doesn't have the same phonetics as Hebrew. Sorry if I came off as rude or youve gotten similar messages, but just thought you should know if not already knowing before
((Oh, no worries, I know; I’m Jewish myself! But in my experience people tend to either read it and assume the other pronunciation or hear it and use the other pronunciation anyway because it’s more familiar — or because they find it funny, like the people you can bet teased Karkat over it. It’s not a name most people are familiar with other than the Little Mermaid pronunciation, after all.
To further clarify: the intention was not that he disliked his middle name because it was the same as a Disney movie or a girl’s name, but that he was worried about potential teasing from people who might wrongly assume those things.))
A friend must put their foot down somewhere. I put mine down firmly upon ill-advised ass tattoos.
THEN HE BIT ITS HEAD OFF. BEING BEST FRIENDS WITH GAMZEE MAKARA IS GOING TO SEND ME TO AN EARLY GRAVE, I SWEAR TO GOD.
((You should give Mr. Makara tattoos, I said. Just keep it simple, I said. Do one on his shoulder and the skull on his face and leave it, I said. And now here we are.
I swear on all that is holy, I’m not adding any more after this, and they’re going to stop moving around every time I draw them.
I’m also going to put him in long sleeves a lot more often. Gotta cover those huge yaoi arms somehow.))
WE’VE BEEN DOING A BIG VANTAS-CAPTOR BIRTHDAY THING FOR YEARS NOW, SINCE DAD’S AND KANKRI’S ARE LATER THIS MONTH AND THE CAPTORS ALL JUST HAD THEIRS. IT MAKES SENSE TO JUST MASH THAT SHIT TOGETHER INTO A BIG SUPERPARTY.
NOBODY EVER BELIEVES IT’S A BOY’S NAME. LITTLE MERMAID HAD BEEN OUT FOR AT LEAST HALF A FUCKING DECADE, MY DUMBSHIT OF A DAD KNEW EXACTLY WHAT HE WAS DOING.
