Galactic Dust Bunnies
Tuesday DisUnion Character Post! :)As requested by bagofmints, here we have Hawaii!
- Hawaii is the youngest of the states, and either gets completely dotted on (especially by Louisiana, Georgia, and Minnesota- and no, this doesn’t stand for anything historical, this is just character stuff) or she is totally ignored until she throws a tantrum. It depends on what is preoccupying the other States at the moment. 
- She prefers to keep to her own company, and often finds the other states aggravatingly stupid or pompous. However she doesn’t mind California, Oregon, or Washington as much, but can’t understand why they are not excited about being involved in the Ring of Fire. She wishes so badly that she was in The Ring that Cali agreed they would consider her an honorary part of it (even if he doesn’t understand why she’d want to be- facts on this: Hawaii is a hotspot and not technically part of the Ring).
- She became close to California when he argued with the others against putting her in prison, before he ended interred with her (Historical note: While only about 1% of Hawaii’s Japanese population was interred, those arrested were community leaders, monks, and teachers, so the effect on the Japanese communities was devastating, and this happened pretty much immediately after Pearl Harbor).
- That said, California annoys her because she can’t convince him to do a movie about her last Queen, and anytime she manages to, he tries to cast some Anglo actor in the role, which she won’t tolerate. 
- She brings coffee up to Washington when he isn’t feeling well. And, she’s sad he can’t enjoy his Volcano like she does hers. 
- Hawaii doesn’t get on well with Alaska and Texas. Their consent chatter about being independent pissers her off. She considers herself the only state to still have a legal argument to leave the US, and yet she doesn’t make near the noise Alaska and Texas do about it. She realizes that at this point she is -for better or worse- linked to the Union. so their inability to not realize this truth applies to them too drives her crazy. The Carolinas don’t bother her as much when they threaten secession (again). When South Carolina brings up seceding, she assumes he’s just being a sore loser, and when North Carolina brings it up, she thinks she mistook North Carolina for South Carolina. XD
-  That said, she wants Uncle to admit her was wrong for taking her as he did. Like really admit it, not just pat her on the head and say he’s sorry. It’s pretty much her first request at any meeting. Uncle pretends he doesn’t hear her.
- She still has not forgiven MB Monebags (character previously named Big Money- thank you to gehayi for the better name) for overthrowing her monarchy and goes out of her way to hurt him without hurting her people. Her anger at Monebags eclipses Louisiana’s anger at South Carolina, but she is less vocal. But if she could find away of exploding a Volcano and destroying him without hurting her people, she would. 
- The states got her the pacifier to see if it helped with eruptions. It didn’t really, but she won’t give it up now (Unless she is throwing it at someone who has gotten on her last nerve). 
- She is one of the smarter State’s in terms of seeing through Monebags bull, but very few state’s listen to her when she points out his lies because “she’s a baby.” She tries to point out she’s not an idiot and was a former self-sufficient monarchy before some state’s were even state’s, but this changes nothing.
- So she continues be angry

Next State up, by request of my Husband will be Wyoming.

As I have to devote more time to original projects, one of my favorite characters is getting cranky.

I will have to sketch him soon I think (and Jim). My motto is “do not anger characters who can light your sketchbook on fire” lol

What is is about wearing headphones while painting that communicates “now is a GREAT time to talk to me?”

Yea it’s clearly our “generation that’s making homosexuality a trend.” Seriously, pisses me off when people say that. look at this! It’s always been around, it’s not a trend, it’s real. It’s beautiful.

These are really beautiful images.

History Lesson: In America from about 1700-1920 there was a social rule that said that women did not have a sex drive. According to men, all women ever were asexual and only ever had sex because their husbands wanted it and as a good doting wife they would open up for him. That said, lesbians flourished in this time! Because it was believed that women did not have sex, when two women would share a house and finances together (called a Boston Marriage, look it up!) nobody thought anything of it. Because clearly they werent homosexuals since clearly women were incapable of being independently sexual. The more you know!
