Anonymous said: hey minuiko, just curious, do you have any advice on applying to u chicago? i know you went there previously and was wondering if you had any tips. i'm trying to figure out what to put on this application but i have no idea, do you have any advice? sorry if this is a bit off topic and irrelevant to what you usually get asked, i'm just a little lost because applying to colleges has been extremely confusing so far. hope you're having a good day!
Sorry anon, it’s been half a decade since I applied, I don’t remember the application process very well. All I know is they like interesting essays, so try to get introspective, avoid generic BS, and of course edit the hell out of it before sending it out. Best of luck, and if anyone else has advice for anon feel free to comment!
Thanks, I hadn’t heard of this before ^^
theyre also called quasiplatonic relationships for those who cant/dont want to reclaim the q slur, and the term can also apply to an emotional relationship/attraction that is neither romantic nor platonic
Anonymous said: I just finished reading this book called Seraphina, and I think it was alright. I really loved it while I was reading it, but that was because so much of the story was like Fire, which more than anything just made me miss Kristen Cashore's characters, so now I'm going to reread them all again, after looking through your fanart. I love all those characters so much and those books reality don't get as much fame as they deserve. I love how you draw Fire's hair. Shouldn't she have more scars tho?
She probably should, that’s my bad because I’ve only read each of the Seven Kingdoms books once and didn’t pay too close attention to character description (the reason why I’m more detail-oriented for Tamora Pierce books is because I tend to reread those all the time, for whatever reason!). Thanks for pointing it out, I’ll pay more attention next time :)
Anonymous said: I know a lot of people have expressed their love for you, your art and a lot of your amazing stuff (i love your metas) but I'm not sure if anyone has already pointed out how organized your tumblr is like if I want to find something I just need to know the tag then BAM, here you are and wow, its amazing how you can easily find stuff in here and yeah, just came to say that. Stay awesome, you wonderful person you.
Ah, that’s great to hear! There’s a coupla posts that I need to find official tags for, but I do try to tag things appropriately - my stuff had been really disorganized for years because I was still getting used to tumblr and people put up with me patiently as I kept promising to reorganize it, so I finally got ‘round to doing a massive overhaul of all my tags a few months ago. All I can say is, bless the xkit guy and his next seven generations :B

Haha I don’t do ship weeks on principle, but especially not these last 2 weeks since I’m working on secondary apps for med school (I have like 10+ still to send out) u_u
Anonymous said: Hey! I was wondering where do you buy your button machine? cuz' i'm looking for a good one and i don't know where to find one
My friend directed me to buttonbiz, they have good prices and a lifetime warranty. I’ve also seen people vouch for americanbuttonmachines. I made the mistake of going for a Chinese-made machine the first time around because I didn’t do my research, and they’re about $200 cheaper but it totally wasn’t worth it because the fail rate was too high and the quality of the buttons were terrible and the size wasn’t industry-standard to boot (so I would’ve had a hell of a time finding replacement button parts). I hear the Tecre machines (the one I have now) are the ones most worth their weight, and the one I have has been super reliable so far.
You guys are adorable and sweet and incredible and I am very grateful to have y’all. Hope your day’s going well (and if not, I hope things look up soon). I just. I would hug all of you if I could and I mean that.
