Artist review for ToxicWaste

This is a review for the artist @doublytoxicwaste

I commissioned him to draw my characters. It took about a week. He was willing to make the little tweaks in the details as much as I wanted and was overall very nice ^_^

What I asked for/context:

A scene in which the girl is drawing an image on the guy’s belly saying “I like…” followed by a sketch of a penis. xD This was meant to show the girl’s silly side because this is the kind of thing she would do to her cousin/lover if she ever found him asleep. Why? Because this is her cruel sense of humor. (it’s permanent marker and she knows his comrades will see this in the men’s showers or something…)

ToxicWaste did a great job and I really love the cute style of his art. He’s very accommodating and easy to communicate with. The drawing makes me smile. Thanks, dude! ❤ You can find his deviantart page here.

S and C prank

Just for my reference

Dynamic 1 = a lot of shared history

Dynamic 2 = some shared history

Dynamic 3 = no shared history

My ideal: First cousins, dynamic 2 as the foundation/bedrock, blood-related, see each other as cousins/close friends (distinctly separate from siblings), “good girl/evil guy”.

Queer community’s hypocrisy (personal vent)

My OTP, my mind, my rules.

pretty 2

I didn’t want to bother even writing a post about hypocrisy in the queer community because it’s so obvious that it doesn’t even need to be said. This topic isn’t even worth writing about. Antis are not morally superior. Antis are selfish-to-the-core and cowardly people. But I needed to vent just a tiny bit.

I am usually super careful who I open up to about my writing and my main character pairing, because I know better than to believe that everyone will get it. But this time I slipped in my judgment and thought that someone else who is trans might at least be neutral towards my preference, since I was trying to be supportive of their stuff (their trans stuff) but this person thought my reaching out to them was an invitation for them to go on a rant at me about how they are an anti and how they are against the “normalization” of incest.

And the worst part, they thought they could tell me that I need to change key details about my characters’ identities/relationship. I told them off in as calm a way as I could but it really shocked me that they of all people would think they have that right to tell others what they can or cannot feel or like (considering how they had been treated for their own creative expressions).

I’m not one of those people who will try to argue that cousins are not incestuous. They are in an ambiguous area because they are not immediate family but are still family. And I’m not even saying everyone should automatically be into the same things as me.

But when it comes to my OTP, no way in hell am I changing who they are for anyone. To do so would be to give up my principles as a creative person and also my beliefs about love and relationships and personal freedom.

What exactly would I gain by changing that core part of them? Fake fans, fake love, everything I hate most. My characters would no longer be themselves… they would be just another unrelated couple basking in privilege and making flimsy, half-hearted alliances with queer people, setting themselves up against the newest version of a demonized minority: incestuous couples.

No thanks. I will NEVER change who they were when they first came to me…

When it comes to art, there is such a thing as an ideal audience. That’s the audience you find when you are 100% authentic in your writing or your art. You don’t find that by being a wimp, a conformist. That prospective ideal is worth fighting for because that is the difference between conditional and unconditional love.

It’s not the “normalization” of consensual human incest people should be worried about. It’s the normalization of this level of mindless hypocrisy that should be a concern. You can’t move any minority’s rights forward while maintaining that it’s ok to leave people out, it’s ok to be intellectually dishonest, it’s ok to infantilize others because their preferences are different, and most of all… you can’t move anyone’s rights forward while maintaining this idea that a person’s body is not their own and that their identity is what society makes it.

No. I will not change a single thing about them because the problem is with the Anti. The anti is the one incapable of loving a being that is different. The anti is the one in denial about their own lack of understanding. The anti is the one that needs to change.

images of my characters

I had a bit of a misunderstanding about the game. Due to some confusion with the code and mixed signals, I got the wrong impression that I could make a related couple with the original game. Unfortunately, there are limits after all. I was disappointed, BUT, it did lead me to trying out the mod I was going to try out in the beginning. So I tried to focus on the positive.

I kept calling it the “incest” mod but that’s not a fair way to describe it. What it actually is is a sex mod that allows interactions that goes beyond what the original game lets people do. One of its features is that it allows for incestuous relationships within the gameplay, but that is only one feature. The mod is amazing for all kinds of other reasons as well. If you play this game, you might’ve heard of it. I have installed it but I haven’t yet done anything beyond vanilla interactions so far.

The good thing is that even without the mod, a person can still use poses for any character pairing. I wanted to share some screenshots I took, using poses made by various people, as well as custom content. All of this I did without using the mod. I have been really enjoying playing with poses and outfits to try and capture my characters’ relationship dynamic. Tumblr didn’t let me post all the images I wanted to because of its new rules, but none of them were ‘explicit’ anyway. Still, some got flagged.

I posted those ones on another wordpress page: https://sorcererrain.wordpress.com/

The below images were the ones I was sure were “vanilla” enough for Tumblr. I actually tried to make a storyline but realized it would take too long so that is why I am instead sharing my favorite screenshots. This post is almost a duplicate of the one I posted on tumblr:

S and C – Taming The Male Witch

Made in the Sims game. I tried to set up this scene to capture another aspect of their dynamic, where she takes charge. I imagine him being the top when it comes to the bedroom but they both have this power play sometimes.

I call this…’Taming The Male Witch’ ^_*
