46 - Blackfishstory: none created: 2010
Blackfish is the embodiment of the waters of the Pacific west coast of British Columbia- specifically the area around the Sunshine Coast and Haida Gwaii.  She takes her name from orcas, who along with being called ‘killer whales’ are also sometimes called ‘blackfish.’  She is the sea, and is part of the sea, with a kelp forest for hair, the midsection of a seal, the hindflukes of an orca, and a heart that is an octopus.  Sometimes she is small enough to fit inside the shell of a hermit crab- other times she becomes so large that humpback whales are like salmon fry to her.  She doesn’t speak, though she sings wordlessly and laughs often- you can always know where she’s been because she leaves floating rafts of kelp drifting in her wake.

This is one of the most beautiful things ever.

If you’re curious, the stuff Jewish folks aren’t allowed to eat during Passover is called Chametz. It includes more than just leavened bread.

That is interesting.

I guess before I thought it was more like it was traditional to eat certain things, not that you couldn’t eat other things.

There are definitely things that are traditional to eat. Lamb is often a part of it (we have to have a lamb shank as part of the ritual involved, but eating lamb itself isn’t required). Charoset and horshradish are usually incorporated.

Matzoh is required for part of the dinner. But you can use matzoh to make all kinds of things, like matzoh ball soup, which we have every year.

There’s a lot that goes into it. I’m not Jewish, but I live with a Jewish family and have come to the Seder dinner every year for the last decade or so.

Oh! And wine is part of it. You’re basically required to drink lots of it. Unless you’re a kid, or you can’t drink alcohol for whatever reason (like me, I’m an ex-alcoholic, so I share sparkling grape juice with the kids).

Subject #183 has no face of their own. Instead, each person who looks at Subject #183 will see the face of the person they have most hurt in their lifetime. This causes varied reactions, from grief, to discomfort, to anger, and more among those who view the subject.

Subject #183’s face does not appear on film or photograph, and instead will appear only as a blurred spot.

This is amazing to me. I like the creep factor and everything, but when I first saw it without the description, I thought, “Oh, that’s almost what my face blindness looks like.”

I thought maybe another face blind person was sharing what people look like to them when they try to recall them from memory, like I did a while back.

Ha ha, that’s pretty neat! I’ve heard about face-blindness, but have never seen anyone’s visual representation of it. And it’s hard to imagine since for most people, it’s such an abstract idea. 8D

It didn’t occur to me to try to share with people what my face blindness was like until about a year ago.  A character in the show Hannibal was face blind, and they showed what a face looked like from her perspective, and it was so well done!  Then I wanted to try to share what it looked like to me.

So I made these: http://evilcorynn.tumblr.com/post/51881700534

And then my friend kept asking me to try to draw faces from memory, and they look like this: http://evilcorynn.tumblr.com/post/52056328445

It’s fun to talk about this stuff.

A drawing for korsithkoris!  This is one of their angel monsters, who is super creepy and I love them.  I’m a bit obsessed with eyes.
I don’t know what colors this angel is supposed to be, and I decided to make something up.

AHHHHH
AHHHHAHHHH
SCREAMING
HOW DO I
HOW
WHAT
WORDS
honestly, I have no idea with colors either, so you’re like 300 steps ahead of me, I’m still making myself work with things - BUT OHMYGOD WHAT YES YES YES
SCREAMING I CAN’T STOP
OMFG IT IS SO CUTE AND SO CRAZY AND SO YES YES YES
also I love eyes too, like wow, yeah

Oh my goodness, I am blushing so hard.  I’m so glad you like it! I was kind of toning down the creepiness a little because I’m in a non-creepy mood, I guess.  I’m glad that’s OK!

HI! Thank you for taking fuckyeahmonsterenbies' survey! Would you like me to draw something for you? I'm hoping folks will have monster OCs they'd like to see drawn, but really I can try anything!

OH DEAR. Uhm, uhm, I remember you writing about this and then I promptly forgot once I responded, haha! I don’t like to assume people are free or always able.

UHM. Well, what do you like to draw? I’d be happy to choose one of my monsters+enbies. :)

Oh noooo, you’re supposed to do all the deciding!  I really do enjoy drawing pretty much anything.  Except I’m terrible at cats.  I don’t know why.  Just terrible.

Though… I find the angel creatures you’ve been sharing very intriguing. 

Oh dear, you should have said so! hAHAH, I admit I really like them too, and have no idea if I should tag them under the “monster enby” thing anyway. 8x Well, if you want, you should pick one of them and draw them, haha. ;) Or if that’s too much (since omfg, I know how much sometimes I sit there and go “what have i created, why draw, too much”) I can definitely nose around for other things. :)

Aaah, I can’t do it. I can’t decide. You pick!

I’m having trouble motivating myself to do stuff.  So I’m just doodling stuff for now.

An agender plant person, who prefers female pronouns.  At night, she sits among plants and helps morning glories grow, waiting for them to open their flowers.  Don’t be fooled by  her gentle demeanor; morning glories choke the life out of any plants they can get their strangling vines around.
[image description: Full color drawing of a humanoid in a sitting position.  She is very thin and has green skin.  She is holding her arms up, and her hands cradle a blooming blue morning glory flower.  Morning glory flowers and leaves grow where she sits, up into her lap, and vines twist up her arms and neck.  Her hair is made of braided green and brown vines that are held in a bun.  Her eyes are closed, she has a wide, thin mouth, and a flat nose.]
