we need to talk about that house loan

It’s gonna cost you a leg. Specifically, that guy’s prosthetic leg.
I need it.

I also need that guy’s eye.

You know that guy with the metal arm that has a star on it? Yeah. I’m going to need that arm. No, really. I need it.

I feel like the werewolf genre just makes werewolves generic bad asses too often without exploring some of the pitfalls of being a werewolf….like not wanting to rip your nice clothes because you gotta tear off a dude’s face. (To be fair, she normally would wear clothes that aren’t as nice, but it was an emergency.)

I’m working on pulling together a lengthy werewolf comic story, and this is sort of a little test comic to see if I can deal with drawing werewolves constantly. (Not a problem. It’s super fun to draw werewolves.)

Potioneers sometimes have need of “claws” such as these in order to more easily manipulate small and delicate ingredients and protect themselves against those which are dangerous but still require extreme delicacy, which cannot be achieved while wearing a glove. Some wix have beautifully ornate sets of “claws” crafted for them.

I respect cops on principal, kind of the same way I respect military folk. They’re the guys who put their lives on the line to make you feel safer.

But because of all this rioting going on or whatever, and the crowd control, it’s become a mess and everyone’s blaming the cops. You’re forgetting that just because the media’s smearing the people getting attacked as ‘rioters’ that they’re also smearing the names of cops who are honest and genuinely do their jobs right.

But of course, everyone’s focused on the little people. Go figure.

And also this is going on way longer than it should have.

You respect cops on principal? Oh my god.

You’ve never been to a bad neighbourhood in your life, have you?

"they’re also smearing the names of cops who are honest and genuinely do their jobs right."

"they’re also smearing the names of cops who are honest and genuinely do their jobs right."

"they’re also smearing the names of cops who are honest and genuinely do their jobs right."

Do you think before you type?

I have to unfollow you on principal.

And then there are people like you…who are exactly the reason I wrote this post.

So what, you’re saying all of the US is a bad neighborhood? Your logic is flawed. There are decent cops out there, but because of the press, they’re all meant to look bad. I’ve met decent hardworking cops, hell I’ve hung out with a few for interviews for my current writing project. I’m also planning on becoming a detective and police officer when I graduate.

Because it’s clear to me you only read one sentence. I want to catch bad guys and put them away. I won’t go shooting people unless I or my partners are clearly in imminent danger.

FYI I wasn’t referring to the people in that situation, the riots or whatever. I was referring to people elsewhere. You will not be missed.

Babe, police are only nice to the middle and upper class. 99% of cops are scum. They could smile at a rich person, help an older, well dressed woman to her car, and beat the homeless to death.

"To protect and serve." Yeah, to protect and serve the financially secure.

You don’t know a damned thing about the police force. Let me ask you, do you want to patrol good places, where the rich live, or are you willing to help people in the ghetto as well? You might say yes, but let’s face it, you would rather help the rich. Less trouble, right?

Heeeeeey now, that’s enough.

My grandfather was a cop…

Yes, some are very VERY corrupt, but there are some kind ones too. 

I’ve met like one nice cop. Cops have made my life a living hell. I stand by what I said. So you’re grandfather’s in the 1%, then, that’s good.

Nice job saving your ass there and also revealing one of the glaring reasons as to why you don’t like cops. Give me statistics and facts and charts and then we’ll talk.

Saving my ass? How… ? C is one of my best friends.

Yeah. Because cops totally keep track of their own misdoings without altering any stats. At all.

I don’t like cops because I’ve seen what they do.

Literally 99% of police brutality complaints go uninvestigated. And that’s just Central New Jersey. 

That’s saving your ass by “OH ALL COPS ARE BAD BUT YOUR GRANDFATHER IS OKAY”, which is also kind of hypocritical because you’re making exceptions for personal reasons, which skews judgment. I acknowledge that there are corrupt cops and I acknowledge that there are cops that aren’t, C’s grandfather is in the group of cops who aren’t. You’re making specific exceptions.

Okay, yes, I’ll cave at the use of statistics, but I’d hardly call the Huffington Post a reliable source.
