Pubescent Mutant-blood Ninja Troll AU.
Instead of being stabbed with a culling fork four genetically deviant troll grubs were tossed down what was thought to be a particularly nasty bottomless pit in the furthest recesses of the brooding caverns, where they were found and raised by a rogue green-blooded turtlerat lusus with a fondness for martial arts.
Donnie’s a gross fish dude who’s way too comfortable having his software grubs crawl all over him, Leo communes with the Ancient Ones, Raph has emotion-fueled telekenetics, and Mikey has heard enough “pizza horns” jokes to last a lifetime.
I ADORE YOU MORE THAN I HAVE WORDS FOR
No, like. When I was 10ish-16ish, TMNT was my thing. If I’d had access to a fandom about it back in the early 90s it would have been my thing like Homestuck is my thing now.
The only way this could possibly be more up my alley is by being set in the pseduo-scifi/steampunk sort of universe you get in the Final Fantasy games.
And if this kingdom falls, I will hold you the whole way down
And if this trumpet calls, I will shield you from the sound
And if this kingdom falls, I will show you where your wings are
And if this trumpet calls, I will play a slow guitar
did I ever mention how insanely talented my friend Jack is
So while I really enjoyed this comic by ModMad, the ending was killing me because it was just so darn depressing. Doodled this to make me feel a bit better and also because I love Grenda and her canon freakish strength.
THIS ONE IS THE BEST ONE
What's the best way for a poor person to avoid buying sweatshop stuff? I hate what happens in sweatshops but at the same time my options are limited due to money and what's being sold in my area :( Do you have any advice?

Thrift is the only thing i can think of
Not buying from sweatshops would do nothing to improve the lives of the workers so it’s probably best to not waste energy on shopping “ethically” and concentrate on organising our own workplaces and communities.
Over the past decade, factory and sweatshop workers across East and South Asia have been militantly organising. Their unions are getting stronger, they are taking direct action against bosses and militias, and they are gaining better wages and working conditions all the time.
To boycott the products they make, when no union or sweatshop workers are calling for a boycott, doesn’t strengthen their struggle, it’ll weaken it.
Nike or Primark, whatever you buy you’re buying from exploited workers. And that includes the first world primark shop workers and delivery people. You cannot boycott capitalism under a globalised capitalist system.
Boycotts lead to less profits lead to already exploited workers being laid off. Unless they call for a boycott (in which they’ve hopefully prepared for the fallout) you’re only added more exploitation and starvation. It’s a fucking terrible tight-rope act that was purposefully designed to weaken solidarity and direct action.
The actresses from our show did a segment on their casting experiences in Hollywood. It’s eye opening and I’m hoping people see the need to donate to this project if they haven’t already!
MisSpelled is about five girls who mysteriously acquire magical powers and how they learn to deal with them and one another. It’s a dramedy and mostly just a fantastical adventure featuring an all women of color cast and a variety of body types.
So often we clamor for diversity and when shows like MisSpelled pop up they fall by the wayside because they don’t have the financial backing of a network.
