Wow.








I think this is a lovely piece of art. I would rather look at something like this piece of art than at photos of actual guys "doing it." I think this is beautiful.  :)





Thanks, Jeff, for taking the time to comment. I agree. I think the artist, Haylee Y. is something special. It seems that in her 'day job' she works with animals, dogs particularly, and helps rehabilitate them. I think it's obvious why her empathy, sympathy, sensitivity really make her art (which is already very high caliber) so alive.


This is one of my favorites (which I posted earlier in this thread, on page 5).



THANKS SO MUCH TO @urbanhymnal for the dialogue.  
You are the actual literal best. <3

In fanart, usually it is Bitty who comforts Jack--
But sometimes Jack comforts Bitty right back--




I’ve had a rough few months.  
Lots of death and trauma…both direct and secondary.  
SO……hurt comfort happened.

I got really stuck on this a while back and it’s just been sitting there,
so I just colored it really simply. I almost put it in the scrap folder,
but nobody puts hurt/comfort in the corner.

You're welcome, John. I just can't get over that image. I don't know how to explain it. Obviously they're having sex, yet somehow the image isn't the least bit prurient--or, at least, I don't find it prurient anyway. And I don't feel like I'm "spying" on them--and that doesn't have anything to do with them being comic characters and not "real people." Maybe the use of color in the image has something to do with it.

It sort of makes me want to cry.

That's the highest possible praise for the artist, I think--  :)

And now--           http://ngoziu.tumblr.com/post/81732310357






Artist/Writer/Cartoonist Ngozi Ukazu, the creator of Check Please!  and her winsome creations,
Samwell University hockey players/teammates/Haus (bunkbed) roomies Justin Oluransi (from Toronto) and Adam Birkholtz (from Buffalo, NY)
(AKA Ransom and Holster)





Well. the amazing Ngozi has now created an amazing AU (alternate universe) episode in just 40 short panels. Ransom and Holster are not the beloved Samwell hockey team 'D-Men', but instead are colleagues, a pair of firefighters in a crisis. Ransom (Justin Oluransi) is called 'Jay' and Holster (Adam Birkholtz) is--well, see for yourself. (FYI, there's another firefighter called 'Zimmermann' who is mentioned in passing, but the two main protagonists don't seem to think very highly of this AU Jack.)

Just read.

  • A city boy's mentality, with a cowboy's soul.
interesting


Tell him when l come up to him and ask to play the record, l'm gonna say: ''Voulez-vous jouer ce disque?''
'Voulez-vous, will you kiss my dick?'
Will you play my record? One-track mind!
