THIS WAS SO FUN. I love this twisty boy sm thank you 🥺
the fear of freezing to death seems a little bit Buried-aligned too because of the way it becomes hard to move (buried in a way that isn't physical but isn't metaphorical either). But yeah because it's a pretty slow process, it would almost definitely be End-aligned, given that you would realize you were in the process of dying a while before you actually died.
This is a good example to show that when you look too close and too narrowly, classifications start to break down to the point of being rather useless. Just because there’s a little bit of black in your red paint doesn’t mean it’s no longer red, just a darker shade. Looking at any manifestation under a microscope will allow you to dissect it until it all gets pointless. Following that logic to an extreme will lead you to “the fear of being buried alive is actually just the fear of death and of being held against your will, so it’s actually the End and the Web, not the Buried” or “the fear of being watched is just the fear of judgement which can lead to ostracization or violence so it’s actually the Lonely and the Hunt, not the Eye”, which you’ll admit makes the entire system crumble. It is by nature imperfect; to get a clean answer, one must wield Occam’s Razor with decisive efficiency.
Saw this post and thought “yea that’s jonmartin.” Made this with the intention of being a dumb meme but I made myself a tiny bit sad.
[ID cool toned comic of Jon checking his email.
Image 1: Jon sits a desk and looks at his computer with a resigned expression.
Image 2: Fake screenshot of an email from Martin. The text of the email says “Jon, statement is on your desk. Next time get it from Rosie.” His signature indicates that he is the assistant of Peter Lukas. Below, the gmail suggested replies read “Okay, thank you,” “ok thanks,” and “I need you.”
Image 3: Zoomed in shot of the words “I need you.”
Image 4: Close up of Jon’s face as he stares at the email with a pained expression.
Jon is a British-Indian man with dark skin dotted with scars. He has greying black hair that has been pulled into a messy bun. End ID]

smth about ace people confidently wearing stuff like lingerie is so personal actually.
‘jon doesn’t know what tiktok is’ 'jon knows what tiktok is’ stop. you know who definitely knows what tiktok is? elias. that app is full of people exposing way too much personal information, elias is all over that shit. he does however call it 'ticked tok’ bc he is the worst
I’m not sure how to do the hide until you tap thing with pictures but TW!! The following images contain artistic blood, bright colors (possible eye strain), mannequins, and a spider. I forgot to add triggers to the other two I posted, so that will be fixed soon.
I don’t feel like posting all of them so here are the highlights of my fear drawings!
Mr. Spider looks far too dapper here for the ungrateful bastard he is, and I am, unfortunately, aware of this
I swear I saw a tumblr post on here that said ‘horses have over 4,000 bones’ and i don’t know where it came from because its totally wrong, they have 205, but what kind of fucked up horse has this person seen out there because I’m absolutely terrified of it
extremely thankful this creature exists slightly to the left of our known reality
it sounds like a bowl of cereal when it walks
just because it has 4000 bones doesn’t mean they all must belong to it. you see where I’m going?
I have to reblog the bone horse. I love the bone horse. It haunts my dreams.
I'm sorry if you've already talked about this bc I haven't seen it, but I noticed your web Jon still seems to have worm scars, what's the deal with that ?
Okay so initially I was thinking of an AU where Jon is an assistant (either Archivist Sasha or Archivist Martin), becoming a Web avatar during this time. So he still went through the Prentiss incident, hence the scars.
(More specifically I was thinking that he came across the NotThem table during Prentiss, but the table itself instead called to him, reacting to his Web trauma. So he wasn’t replaced, instead Became and NotThem was his first meal. But he just couldn’t remember that super well afterwards and was just oblivious to his new avatar status until more changes start coming :)
Now I just think the spots are cool and a nice visual design so it could just be patterns XD
hey actually this new trend of white artists drawing brown jon with an over-exaggerated hooked nose and pointed chin so that their face literally looks like a crescent moon from the side while drawing white martin with round features and giving him normal proportions can die. you’re not showing contrast or drawing cartoonishly. you are actually promoting racist stereotypes and drawing offensive caricature
and antisemitic too
so a not-so-fun fact is that not even a century ago, many people (including doctors) genuinely believed that a hooked nose determined one’s morality. people believed that people who had that sort of nose, or a similarly shaped one (jews, west asians, south asians, etc.) were inherently evil.
when that is exaggerated in art, along with a pointed chin, it falls into the range of looking exactly like those “medical” charts promoting eugenics and violence:
and this is not to say that people with hooked noses or pointed chins shouldn’t be drawn! they deserve to be represented, but they also deserve to be represented with care. sahar mentioned th*rdchildart in their tags, and i don’t really have much to say about how she draws brown jon except to show you these images and let you make your own conclusions.
going through her other art, you can see that she’s perfectly capable of drawing characters with normal head shapes, and realistic proportions. even her martin looks normal. he’s round in terms of the shapes he’s drawn with, but still looks like a person.
when you choose to make an aracial character brown and then draw them like this, what does that say about you? i’m not sure the answer is a positive one.
this isn’t a call to action or asking anyone to call her out (she has her asks and messages off, otherwise i would have brought this up a week or two ago when it first came to my attention, and i have messaged an artist who took inspiration from her and who is currently thinking over that design’s implications), but it’s something to think about in all depictions of brown characters.
Actually I think about Sasha James SOO much. She had so much going on in the five episodes she appeared I can’t put into words how many thoughts I have on her
Like, as many people have pointed out, she’s fucking weird.
She’s in her early/mid 30s with seemingly no close connections outside of her work, which is an academic institute dedicated to studying the paranormal- a thing she does completely believe in until episode 26! (and the “I’ve always considered myself a sceptic” thing is wild to me btw, because she says in 39 that working in artifact storage was bad enough to make her want to quit! Which means either a) she somehow LIED under compulsion (???) and like Jon was putting on a front or b) she did find artifact storage scary but still didn’t believe it was real. Both options are wild). She only believes in the supernatural after being stalked by a monster, whom she decided to sit down and talk to, which led to her nearly getting eaten by worms (she ALSO did not 100% believe in said worms despite her coworkers encounter with them)
She’s generally seen as likeable, friendly, and reliable, earning the respect of her peers (Jon notably seems to get along with her best out of everyone in season 1? he’s generally less pissed with her at all times than he is with Tim and Martin (who he does care about but doesn’t show it as much)). despite this reputation, all indicators seem to point to her having the social grace of a bull in a china shop!!
like, Instead of just asking Jon his birthday or asking martin about his qualifications, likely because she knew she wouldn’t get a real answer from them…SHE JUST HACKS THEIR COMPUTERS??? She doesn’t even try to hide it! she tells Jon!! Tim knows!! She doesn’t even gain anything from knowing these things, the Jon thing is mostly useless on a practical level, and it’s not like she. Idk blackmails martin with his CV info, she’s not a narc, she keeps it under wraps, she just wanted to know and thought this was. Idk efficient!? Girl what!!!
She’s sweet and nerdy! She’s the first character to technically kill someone. She’s implied to have pranked Jon before, to the point he didn’t trust her not to have written episode 12s statement as a hazing thing. When she talked to Michael, her main emotion expressed was annoyance at his cryptic riddles. She’s openly admitted she should quit her job, but didn’t want to because she was curious. Gertrude wanted her to be the next archivist. She takes time out of her morning commute to look through warped glass and people watch. She says Calliope Like That. All of her coworkers love her to bits. Tim told her about his brother. She’s one of the only characters to have canonically fucked and she doesn’t believe in the concept of the self
Most of all I think what this post is all a preamble to is the fact that Sasha “not the bravest person in the world” James went out pushing Tim out of harm’s way. She goes with Michael- yes cause she’s curious but also because he told her he could help her save her friends. She’s brave, maybe to a stupid degree, but she’s brave! When she dies, that’s when the archives falls apart. Not because they lacked intelligence without her, but because they all loved her and losing her hurt.
We all talk about how Sasha is/isn’t the braincell, or how she is/isn’t impulsive, but like. She values her friends lives and she’s brave, and I think maybe that’s the most overlooked aspect of her character in some ways! She’s a lot like Jon, doing seemingly illogical things to keep ppl out of harm’s way. She’s weird and nosy but not ruthless like Gertrude. She’s not even overly nice or polite like say, martin, nor is she the emotionally Intelligent core of the team, that’s probably Tim, but the characters do rally around her in a certain way, and she puts herself in danger really early on in the series when the characters still think they might have something to live for. Because she thinks it’s the right thing to do.
Anyway, in conclusion, Sasha James is maybe The Most character in media, this has been an essay in three parts, I’m your host ladel welcometogrouchland, thank you and goodnight Britain
