"It is kind of you to like a Scarecrow," he replied. "But surely you will think more of me when you hear the splendid thoughts my new brain is going to turn out." Then he said good-bye to them all in a cheerful voice and went to the Throne Room, where he rapped upon the door.
"Come in," said Oz.
The Scarecrow went in and found the little man sitting down by the window, engaged in deep thought.
Chapter 16. This is the first time we see the Throne Room in full, and I thought it would be nice to have little Oz on a tiny folding chair as a counterpoint to the throne.
So my sister is in need, so let’s do this.
Here are the prices:
- Single character sketch: $6
- Add a character: +$3
- Add an scene: +$3
How to get a sketch commission:
- Use the button on my Tumblr profile, the one that says “Put Stuff Here”.
- Post something as a photo, just attach the references of your character there and a small description of what you like to get.
- In the description you write down leave your Paypal email address (I will create an invoice for you) and how much you like to donate (I’ll explain how this works below).
- Simply accept the Terms of Submittion, click “submit”
- Access to your Paypal, and check for the invoice, accept it, and wait for the magic to happen.
How the donation works:
- This is like, a “Pay What You Want” thing, the extra donation means I am putting extra effort on the sketch, at the point if the donation is very generous I’ll go crazy with details, clean the sketch to make it looks like a lineart and even give it some shading, in short, you get what you pay as in any PWYW commission.
Examples of how the sketches looks like:
The things I do:
- male and female.
- inflation themed pictures.
- Hyper proportionated.
- well, practically the things I usually render, so yeah.
Remember if you can’t support with a sketch, a reblog is appreciated, if I see support of any kind I’ll be happy.
California is the first state to pass a ban on using the “gay panic” defense to reduce a murder charge.
You can no longer wiggle out of a murder charge in California by saying you were frightened by a scary lesbian.
Current California law allows a murder charge to be reduced to manslaughter if the killing happened in the heat of passion - the so-called “panic defense”. Defendants charged with murdering members of the LGBT community have been able to claim they acted in a “moment of passion” upon discovering the victim was LGBT, and therefor their crime met the requirements for a reduced charge of manslaughter. The bill that passed the Assembly this week will bar defendants from using their victim’s gender or sexual orientation to support a panic defense. An identical bill passed the state senate in May.
Democratic Assemblywoman Susan Bonilla (right) sponsored the bill, which passed on a 50-10 vote. Ms. Bonilla told reporters that such defenses legitimize violence against LGBT people.
Though The American Bar Association advocates curtailing the use of the “gay panic” defense, California is the first state to ban using the “heat of passion” defense because the victim was LGBT.
The bill now heads for Governor Jerry Brown’s desk for his signature.

First, the bill in question is AB2501. I really, really hate the fact that the media pretty much never cites the actual bill when they’re talking about legislation.
Second, the most important thing about this bill is that unlike most bills of this type, AB2501 is fully inclusive of trans people as opposed to being for gays only. To quote the bill itself: “provocation was not objectively reasonable if it resulted from the discovery of, knowledge about, or potential disclosure of the victim’s or defendant’s actual or perceived gender, gender identity, gender expression, or sexual orientation…”
