So I started reading the webcomic El Goonish Shive because of Tedd, but oh all the characters are so great and Susan is my hero. I bet even Mjolnir would find her worthy. here is a Susan doodle
(no but really though the school uniform debacle was one of my fav moments and I’m so proud of Susan and Tedd and how their friendship evolved)

It’s entirely possible that Susan is the new Thor. I mean, she’s not, but I’d believe it :D

Ellen from El Goonish Shive, because I love Tedd but they can’t be the only character I draw from this awesome webcomic.

ELLEN! :D
I can’t help but look at the green part of that bracelet and think “what does THIS button do…”

I’m starting to see the appeal of this whole fan art thing.
Justin is another of my favourite characters from EGS. He’s nerdy as hell, has the rare superpower of staying calm under pressure, and is basically a good guy, even if he does have his problems. He’s kinda had the short end of the stick for a while as far as his romantic life goes, but that at least is starting to show signs of turning around.
Also he has his earring because I kinda liked the thing.

He might get the earring back at some point if enough people bug me about it.
Also? YAY FAN ART! I approve of the Dragon Kicker t-shirt and badass magicness.

Wait, Susan's mark vanished? Is this something you hadn't revealed, or is my memory just more faulty than usual?

danshive:

You know, I’m honestly not sure. I mean, if I ever show her back again, its gonna be gone, but I’m not sure if it was actually stated that it was gone in the comic itself.

Is it possible for someone who has been given a magic mark to also awaken later?

Yep! That happened with Susan, actually. Her mark has vanished, and she can totally get new spells, so after six months—

Wait, has she been checking her spellbook even less regularly than Elliot?

It’s TUESDAY TIME! WOO!
Idk how trans guy is "oddly informal" it's a pretty typical way of saying it, just like saying someone's a white guy, a black guy, a gay guy. just simply saying that sam is a trans guy, kinda makes the most sense to me, could you explain your preference for trans male?

Simple. I don’t have anyone to casually discuss these things with offline. Every time I discuss it, it’s online, and it’s in a public forum where different people have different views regarding how things should be said and I’m at least trying not to offend anyone.

Generally, people have used “trans man” or “trans woman” when discussing it with me, and I have a tendency to say “male” and “female”. There are good reasons not to in this instance, but it’s a habit that dies hard. If I’d seen “trans guy” prior to that ask, I don’t remember it. That doesn’t mean it isn’t common, but it felt new to me.

Why is trans guy in quotes in that post?

I found  trans guy to be an oddly informal way of putting it, and I personally would normally phrase it as trans male. In other words, I was deliberately quoting their way of putting it, hence the quotation marks. I apologize is this was cause for offense.

i'm not gonna lie, when Grace asked Sam about "I thought only guys had bear-" it didn't register "beard" in my mind. I was googling stuff like "bear body parts on humans" because i was so confused. And then i remembered beards.

I should give someone bear hands and provide no explanation whatsoever :-D
