The RIU

Basically the blog for me (Riverfox237) to randomly post or repost stuff so I can find it later or share fanart or just derp. :D I'm a 24-year-old Christian girl who still likes cartoons and superheroes.

Note: THIS BLOG IS SAFE FOR WORK. I will only post or reblog things that are safe for all ages, including where language is concerned. =)

(P.S. For anyone who cares, RIU stands for Random Insanity Universe, which is a goofy universe I made up. It is full of sillyness and yay. This may or may not ever be actually relevant to things I post here.)(But probably not XD)

If you wanna see more of my art, check out the link at the top of the page. And enjoy your stay!

Hey, everyone! This is the creator of Little Girls Are Better At Designing Superheroes Than You, here with a post I thought you all might like. Writer Ted Anderson and I have made a pitch for a superhero comic!

The comic is about nine-year-old Lucia Marquez-Miller, who loves engineering, and uses her telekinetic powers to build and take things apart with her mind. She calls this power her spark!

As Spark, the world’s youngest superhero, she’s a junior member of a superhero team while also trying to live a normal life. Can Lucia juggle her friends and family while also saving the world from supervillains?

We’re posting a 15-page standalone comic here on tumblr to give readers an idea of what the book would be like.

Being a nice person is so fun

Waiter messes something up? You can see the relief on their faces when you don’t scream and swear at them about it

Extra tickets at an arcade/prize place? Watch a little kid’s face light up when you give them a bunch of tickets

There are too many jerks in this world. Be a nice person.

Seriously, though. =) You get such good reactions from people when you are a nice person. And it restores your faith in humanity a little every time someone is nice to you. You’d be amazed the pleasure you can get just from holding the door for someone and them holding it for you.

(My favorite is double doors where I and another person trade off, holding them open for each other as the other goes in. XD)

Let me explain why this is really important:  Because it takes a lesson every other show teaches you and corrects it.

Most shows will say “Be yourself!  Then girls will love you for you and you will have so many girlfriends!  So many!”

It’s another disappointing message to young boys that teaches them they are entitled to women.  That “hey just be you and you get girls, neat!”

Tino’s mom takes the time to say “No, be yourself because yourself is who you should be.  It won’t necessarily get you girls, some of them still won’t be interested but the most important thing is you like yourself.”

That’s a great message and if he follows through with it, it is likely to make him far more interesting as a romantic partner.

I don’t even know what this is from, but this is something I’ve never actually seen articulated before, and it’s SO IMPORTANT.

Haha, I love Tino and his mom’s conversations! I forgot how awesome this show was!

This makes me wish I’d actually watched the show when it was on. XD Seriously, good advice!

Do you like action? Adventure? Magic? Bandits? Guards? Handsome/beautiful peasants fighting the power? Humor and silly shenanigans plus mystery and intrigue? REALLY GOOD ART?

Then you should go read True Magic, because seriously it’s pretty great. I’ve been following it for years now and it’s fun and fantastic, as is the co-creator and artist vanilleon. (I don’t know other co-creator D. Smiley as well but she seems pretty cool, too.)

And in case you need a little sample for incentive, behold this lovely example page!

Seriously look how shiny it is. And these aren’t even the main characters.

GO READ IT IT DESERVES YOUR LOVE

That is all, enjoy your day. =)
