Me? All I do is hurt people. There’s no one left in the entire universe who cares about me.
for people who are unaware of why the riots in minneapolis started happening, here’s the facts:
- it wasn’t george floyd’s protesters who started reacting violently; it was the cops.
- the protest was peaceful until the cops showed up in riot gear, and started using water cannons, followed up by tear gas and rubber bullets. i got videos from friends who were there, of people screaming and running away from the cops shooting the water cannons, rubber bullets and throwing tear gas at them. they were even shooting at the protesters dragging people away to get medical attention.
- speaking of medical attention, dispatch refused to provide any medical attention to the protesters. people literally had to drive their bleeding friends to the hospital because they refused to send ambulances.
- cops are using non-lethal weapons in a lethal way. they shot rubber bullets into people’s heads and injured them. there’s dozens of photos of protesters with bleeding head wounds from the rubber bullets.
- multiple people used police scanners and heard that there were undercover cops pretending to be violent protesters who were throwing rocks and whatnot at the police, with dozens of eyewitness accounts confirming that information.
- the person who instigated all the chaos last night (it was a fire at an autozone) with the looting and burning buildings is highly suspected to be an undercover cop pretending to be a protester, because the video of him keeps getting taken down. protesters tried to stop him but couldn’t because he had a hammer and they were scared for their safety.
- the cops jammed cell phone towers and cut live streams to interrupt broadcasts and to prevent people from seeing what was really going on and who actually started the violence.
- the cops lied about protesters being armed and about throwing rocks and are literally trying to continue the violence happening and yet no one is holding them accountable for that.
- and during all this, the cop that murdered george floyd still hasn’t been arrested. he has had more than ten complaints filed against him and was involved in three other civilian shootings in the past. and yet he’s still out free along with his three other buddies involved, probably sitting on his couch while all this chaos is happening.
so don’t get it twisted. the cops just want to change the narrative to make it look like they’re the wounded and righteous party, when they’re the ones who started reacting violently in the first place and are still acting violently. so don’t you ever forget who started this tragedy and murdered someone, and who are continuing to react to the situation with violence.
All the media has been covering is the looting especially at target and how out of hand it was. While that was happening the cops outside the 3rd precinct (across the street from lake street target) were tear gassing, macing, and shooting rubber bullets and the non violent protesters. The protesters used the target shopping carts to build a barricade between them and the cops to protect themselves
The world is a fucked up place
And the sad part is that this information doesn’t surprise me at all.
There are very few things on the list of ‘will make spud contemplate canceling the comic entirely’, however, I would like to congratulate some of you for finding one. You see, I have a minor issue with individuals deciding that they won’t get answers from me, so the wave of harassment from entitled anons decides to flood people I care about.
It is becoming blatantly apparent to me that upon my break some fans of the comic have decided to go into the inboxes of my friends and family and send lovely messages such as:
Upon stating that they would in fact, NOT betray my trust if they knew about anything they received lovely messages such as this:
This here? This is unacceptable.
This is childish.
The fact that I need to make any kind of statement on this is utterly and completely ridiculous.
Tumblr will not receive a page Sunday.Patreon will update as normal.
I would just like to bring something up here: no one is entitled to any art, content, etc from Spud nor anyone. The amount of effort that it takes to produce amazing, beautiful, and professional comic pages such as these is insane, going from the layout of the pages to the details within the entirety of the piece. We have been given the privalage to view these pages for free when Spud could easily begin charging for this content exclusively any time she wishes. And yet, she gives us these pages to view and enjoy for free. I don’t understand how you can feel so entitled to someone’s work that you purposely search out Spud’s friends and family and harass them for content you are not entitled to. It’s honestly sad to see people stoop down to that level. Good for you for putting your foot down, Spud.
Basically, to sum it all up, people are wack, ya know?
OK, I’m reblogging this here because this behavior will not be tolerated anywhere.
You should never go into someone’s inbox and act this way, no one is entitled to art.
Especially free art.
… Got it?
qrow is just like “hehe boop” meanwhile oscar,,,
oscar is fucking Pissed Off. he has Had It. he’s at his fucking Limit. look at his face, his fists, he did NOT come all the way from his farm to mistral just to be booped. this little farm boy is s o angy.
George Floyd was murdered by police. Just like Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Sandra Bland, and far too many others.
White supremacists storm state capitals armed with AR-15 assault rifles and are unharmed. Unarmed people protesting murder by police get tear-gassed and shot with rubber bullets.
Systemic racism is the disease of this country. It must be eradicated. From the white supremacists in the White House to the terrorist vigilantes who hunted down Ahmaud Arbery to the Central Park (Liberal, Buttigieg supporter) woman in New York, calling police on a man who merely asked her to leash her dog.
My 3 yo experienced her first harassment from a boy at preschool, and we’re all feeling tired.
We’re talking to her teacher about it - we’re building her confidence to say No.
It’s time to change the way we treat casual harassment. Let’s teach our kids what isn’t appropriate to do to other people, while they are still kids!
Love you all
Did you see journalists are now blaming Skyrim grandma for their lies?
Yes, it’s infuriating

Fun family story: when my aunt was marrying her wife everyone was really excited but also dreading it because my aunt is known for her insanely long speeches so everyone knew her vows would be like 9 hours long so when it came time for her to say her vows she had a shit ton of cue cards in her hands and even her wife started groaning and my aunt took a deep inhale and then unravelled all the cue cards which were taped together and they all just read ‘HOT DAMN’ in giant letters and those were my aunts vows.
And now since I officially have permission to use this photo

just hear me out, I don’t think the atla kids would curse as much as people think sometimes
with aang it’s more obvious. the monks taught him to use his words wisely and to avoid aggressive or offensive language. aang also believes in the ability to create peace via communication. curses don’t really fit into that mindset.
sokka and katara were raised in a mostly male-led society, where girls were probably raised not to use foul language, and boys were taught not to curse around women, children, and the elderly (ie the people sokka and katara spent many of their formative years around). when they begin their travels, they’ve spent most of their lives with people who never really incorporated cursing into their diction, so it just never became a habit for them.
zuko and azula were raised among royalty, and were taught that true leadership is something innate. your speech should reflect your class and status. to curse would be to admit that you need expletives in order for others to listen to you, or that you don’t know how to speak like a proper member of the royal family. when zuko gets older, he’s also probably very cautious with his words, and does his best to make sure he’s speaking clearly and fairly and not coming off too aggressively like his father.
this post does not apply to toph.
Toph’s parents would have taught her that a proper lady never curses, and that it was unbecoming of her class and station.
This, of course, means that she swears whenever possible.

Ravenclaw Headcanon #8
There’s a secret passageway between the Ravenclaw tower and the library. Madam Pince is aware of it and allows late night wanderings/wonderings on two conditions:
1) The library is left in pristine condition.
2) No one enters the restricted section without her expressed permission.
If a student breaks these rules she bolts the secret door to the passage for a week. Ravenclaws tend to obey the rules so as not to disgruntle the rest of their house. However, on occasion, a student can’t resist the pull of curiosity. Or munching whilst reading.
Things Happening In The Ravenclaw Common Room Part 6.
. A student has jinxed one of their friends to “speak in cursive”. No one knows what that means but several notebooks are open, ready to record what happens.
. A small fire has started in a corner; an exhausted 6th Year wanted to see if he could Transfigure his Potions homework into completed Potions homework and set off the magic-proofed parchment.
An experiment is being conducted to see how much water can fit into an enchanted teacup. Thus far it holds about half as much as the Black Lake and everyone is hoping it doesn’t spill.
. At least 19 different strains of magic weed are being grown under the guise of an extracurricular Herbology experiment.
. Some very stressed out 4th Years are concocting a plan to cheat on their History of Magic test tomorrow. It involves mirrors, smoking potions and quite a lot of frogs.
. A 7th Year is trying to make the reagent from Reanimator. His is bright purple at the moment, so more work is probably needed.

Every time I see this. Every damn time. I’m immediately sucked back into my fuckin. Fuckin English lit class with Mr. Fuckass McShit. Mr. “Hit the gong to begin class”, “Namaste, Children”, “I wanna go backpacking in India to find my spiritual awakening and also my left burkinstock that I lost during a cedar sauna drum circle” ass bastard. “Do you want to share your poetry with the class to get in touch with your emotions” ass fucker. Mr. “Here’s a photograph of a tribal shaman, describe him using nature words” asshole. Pretentious-ass, condescending motherfucker. “Do you want to tell us about your saddest memory?” “I dunno, sir. Are you giving me an option?” “No.” “Then why are you asking” Every goddamn day. Fuck. “You seem tense.” Oh, I seem tense? I seem tense. Well fuck, Professor Pillsbury, maybe I ‘seem tense’ because I walk into a room on five hours of sleep to the sound of a goddamn brass gong drilling through my brain and your seven-foot-nine, socks-and-sandals-wearing, patchouli-smelling ass immediately gravitates in my direction with some shit like “a tree……… Is a Poem” and I gotta sit here and politely tell you that No I’m Not Comfortable Telling The Class About A Time I Was Emotionally Vulnerable With A Loved One using words that sound like the way the color yellow smells. Maybe I don’t wanna sit in a circle and hold hands with Brittney from Computer Sciences to “align our auras” or some shit. Fuck. Fuuuuuuck. I swear to God, if I wanted to sing ‘kumbaya’ with a smelly old guy with gross facial hair who writes bad porn on the side, I’d go out to the parking lot and share a Hookah with Crazy Dan, the disgraced electrician. What, I don’t wanna do an interpretive dance to represent the spiritual experience of eating Quinoa in a room full of ambivalent preteens and suddenly I’m the ‘troubled youth’ you need to Robin Williams “O Captain My Captain” your way into having a Paternal Bonding Moment powerful enough to Expand My Impressionable Young Mind and Turn My Life Around, you goddamn saint, you? Jesus Fucking Christ. You insufferable jackass. You’re not “Enlightened”, you rolled out of bed and ate half a pot brownie, wrote a sad song about a leaf, and strolled into class to ramble about your Spirit Animal for six hours straight before calling it a day. Holy Jesus goddamned Christ. Fucking Balls, sir. Holy Fucking Balls
This is very angry.
And VERY specific.

I’m so sorry this took so long. I had a stroke of inspiration to try different perspectives so I’m glad I was able to finish. I figure maybe this is before he shows up in Volume 6? I’m not sure,,, Feel free to interpret it as you want, I was just playing with stances and such lol.
