Okay, I realize this hilariously late for Asexuality Awareness Week (which was last week), but due to unforeseen stressors, it didn’t really get done in time.

Anyway! I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while, and I’m proud of myself of actually getting a six page comic done within a week. (Not that it’s really anything super fancy, but it’s better than nothing lol) I do apologize for the massive ugly text wall that is page four but I had a hard time figuring out how to convey it visually while being kind of pressed for time. oh and the occasional copy/paste, I’m sorry for that too

Enjoy! Click on the separate pictures if the text is hard to read.

Before I start writing: This is a magnificent work of genius. I can see it sprawled open in my mind and it is perfect. All I need to do is write it down.
After I open a blank document: I have two half-sentences and an emoticon. There is nothing else in my brain.

makoto-shishio:

"You heard correctly. You see Terumi back when I was still alive I was originally hired by the Imperials of the Boshin War as a professional hitokiri. Sadly my superiors became afraid of my strength and my ambition and thus, after I was struck in the head by a bullet, they covered me in oil, set me on fire, and left me for dead. However the flames did not kill me, instead they gave me strength, the heat still affects me, even in death. Especially up here…" he began to explain, tapping his head lightly, "The maddening heat became the voices that helped me realize that the newly establish Meiji government was unworthy of ruling Japan. Even when they knew I was alive they never sent any forces after me, for fear of being seen as weak by the powers in the West. So I formed an organization and planned to overthrow the government of cowards and transform Japan into a nation of strength. A nation that would follow my dogma, the flesh of the weak is the food of the strong, the purpose of the weak is to work and be of service to the strong. The flames of war would rage once more and Japan would be reforged into a nation of power!" he continued, grinning madly as flames leapt and danced around him.

Now this… this man and everything about him, all of it was nothing but pure fun in Terumi’s eyes. So it seemed he had encountered a relic from the past of Japan’s history itself, history never once shared, a shadowed history only known of by those who had been a part of it. And what a most fun relic he was turning out to be!

image

"The weak are nothing but food for the strong? Hah! I like you, I like you a lot!" Terumi laughs, bringing his hands together in a sick applause. "That’s the kind of idea that this world needs! It’d make things so much more fun! We’d all be at each other’s throats so much more, there’d be plenty of despair for all!”

image

Terumi began to laugh maniacally into the palm of his hand as a green flame-like aura began to develop around him. Both men were standing in midst of their own madness, to each their own individual wildfires.

Shishio’s grin grew as he saw the other laugh and applause, noting the green fiery aura that formed. “Ha! Now if I had more like you then Japan would have been mine. Alas, the world of the living could not handle Shishio Makoto and in battle with Himura Kenshin, the Battosai, my temperature rose to the point where it ignited the oils and fat in my body, causing me to combust into flames. But that simply meant that I arrived in a realm that would welcome me, a realm where every man is a demon and blood is washed with blood. Tell me Terumi, what greater Hell is there than that?” he replied, smirking darkly.

the little girl cowered in a corner "please don't hurt me!"

Red eyes gleamed as he looked down at her, blood dripping from his sword, “Oh? And what reason can you give me to not hurt you?” his tone is calm as he keeps his gaze on her.

"Your eyes seem to be perceptive then. Far more interesting than the souls I’ve come across in my conquest of Hell for certain." Shishio sneered a bit as he folded his arms, looking at this new face with interest. "I am Makoto Shishio if you’re curious, so tell me, who are you?" he questioned, crimson eyes gleaming with curiosity and just a touch of madness, betraying the crazed but cunning mind that the former hitokiri had within his skull.

image

"The names’ Yuuki Terumi, and correct me if I’ve gone and heard wrong but did you say your conquest of Hell?” Terumi questioned the hitokiri, exactly who was he dealing with? As far as the revenant could question, this was one interesting guy.

"You heard correctly. You see Terumi back when I was still alive I was originally hired by the Imperials of the Boshin War as a professional hitokiri. Sadly my superiors became afraid of my strength and my ambition and thus, after I was struck in the head by a bullet, they covered me in oil, set me on fire, and left me for dead.

makoto-shishio started a rumor

night-of-wallachia:

makoto-shishio:

"Oh? You seem to have knowledge of me creature. Though there are two things wrong with your words. First it was not Battosai that killed me but the sad fact that my body could not handle my power. Also you are wrong in assuming I come to be a puppet. I merely felt a disturbance from down in Hell and decided to investigate." Shishio mused, smirk forming as he folded his arms. "Imagine my surprise at seeing a being as curious as you. However while you seem to know me I cannot say the same of you so who… no that’s wrong… what are you?" he questioned, crimson eyes narrowed despite the smirk still on his burnt lips.

image

"Just a rumor. Not much power here in the depths though. Dead men don’t tell many tales, though you seem quite talkative." Wallachia yawned, some blood spilling out of his mouth that he tried to absentmindedly wipe up. "I’m only saying what I’ve heard from the world above, and the rumor is that you were indeed slain. Might want to return for a rematch and prove them wrong." Wallachia giggled, covering his mouth. "You are capable of leaving her, aren’t you?"

image

"Hmph, most denizens of this domain lost their will and become pathetic wandering ghouls. Perhaps I could return to the world of the living but when I’m already in the perfect place for men like me, a realm of demons and evil…" he formed a pipe, taking in a drag before exhaling a thin trail of smoke, a small sneer forming as crimson eyes practically smoldered with madness, bloodlust, and an ambition for conquest. "Then why should I leave before I conquer it?" he finished. Nearby flames from below shadowed his features a bit as he smirked. This new fellow seemed rather amusing, especially with the sudden blood coming from his mouth. "Though you say you are a rumor? I find that most intriguing, rumors hold much power. When the rumors of my survival reached their ears I imagine those weaklings and cowards in charge of the Meiji government were sweating bullets. Perhaps I will return to the world of the living once I’ve conquered Hell, I assume you would enjoy such a spectacle, rumor." he continued, his smirk turning dark.

The best way to get over your cheese addiction, is to watch a mother cow scream for days as her newborn child is ripped away from her; so that you can have her milk.

HOLD THE PHONE
IMA STOP YOU RIGHT THERE
CHECK YOUR FACTS
Hi there, I’ve worked on a dairy farm. Lemme just correct you.
1. Uhm the cows don’t scream for days, maybe like for an hour at the most but they get over it as soon as you feed them. Seriously. Baby, forgotten.
2. The calves still receive their mother’s milk. In fact, they receive MORE milk than they’d normally be getting, since farmers have figured out the exact amount of colostrum a calf needs to grow up healthy, and they can give this to the baby, whereas with natural feeding the calves often get too little.
3. They receive colostrum from the healthiest cows to insure that their immune system is bolstered enough. Infections and disease are INCREDIBLY common in dairy cows allowed to suckle. Farms even freeze colostrum from the healthiest mothers, just to insure that all calves will be able to have a sufficient quality of healthy, infection-free mother’s milk.
4. The calves are also removed from their mothers due to the high calf mortality rate when left with their mothers. Cows, ESPECIALLY first-time mothers, have the tendency to not care properly for their babies. We’ve had calves with broken legs because their mother stepped on them after birthing (and yes, they have adequate space, they’re just clumsy animals) A lot of new mothers will abandon the calf, or not care for it properly, or not allow it to nurse. Other cows may push around the calves. It’s much safer and healthier for both mother AND child if the calves are removed and placed in a safer area.
5. Calves get EXCELLENT care. They are bottle-fed mother’s milk, placed in roomy, well-bedded box stalls, blanketed, cleaned, vetted. The farm kind of obviously needs them as healthy as possible?
6. Most farms nowadays don’t even completely “take them away”. The farm I worked on would allow the cows to run with their calves for most of the time. They were fed separately for the health reasons listed above, and the cows would be brought in to be milked twice a day, and separated at night so no accidental nighttime injuries happened in the box stalls. They are weaned very gradually, and spend most of the time with their mothers, contrary to what PETA would have you believe.
THIS HAS BEEN A PSA ON BEHALF OF DAIRY FARMERS THANK U FOR TUNING IN REMEMBER TO CHECK UR FACTS NEXT TIME PLEASE

Thank you
