What Makes You Different... by Wazaga What Makes You Different... by Wazaga
... Makes You Beautiful to Me
song by Backstreet Boys

after hearing about spirit day, I felt I wanted to do something with Phox, first of all because she's purple. and second because she's such a compassionate and motherly character that she fits with the spirit of needing to shelter those in need.

and since I can't seam to get it out of my head that thinking about Phox immediately brings Wolf to mind (curse you AatR!!!)

it just fits that such a protective soul like Phox would shelter an equally damaged soul like Wolf...

I dunno. something corny like that. I guess.

I remember being bullied for having a foreign mother way back in grade school. so that sorta triggered this piece.

Phox is mine.
Wolf is :iconcheeko-001:'s

you know, when you think about it, there is no standard for "normal" among human beings. we all are unique and we all have our faults, quirks, and do weird things. so the next time someone calls you a "freak" "weirdo" or "different", just smile and say "thank you for calling me special."....WHOOPS! heh heh, got a little sentimental for a second there, sorry bout that, heh heh heh heeooooh.

I never understood people being hostile to people based on their origins or race. It's weird to me how, even online, some people will be like "oh you're from _____ country? Man, you're an asshole." I mean, doesn't that sort of hard bias make no sense at all? It's always bothered me, personally, how I get blame for stupid crap the American government does around the world... although, I suppose that's a bit unrelated to what you said.
Maybe I'm overthinking it, though. Out of curiosity, why would people care about the nationality of your parent? Is it a cultural thing(/problem) against people not born in the country, or was it just random kids being jerks in whatever way they could think up at the time?

at the time it was just because I was so different. my mom raised me to be too many things that the regular girls in my country are just not. examples include that I wasn't afraid of bugs, but was instead interested in them and liked to collect them in jars sometimes. I liked to climb trees and build forts with sand. I loved games that involved running. I liked to read books over 800 pages long, and of course, I loved to draw cartoon characters all the time.

other girls only liked playing dress-up, listening to love songs, play with makeup, and sometimes they might play tag or hide and seek IF they felt like it.

I was just too different compared to them, therefore they chose the most hurtful way to try to tease and bully me, and that was buy calling me a Kafer for having a foreign mother.

(Kafer is a nasty word to label anyone who it non Muslim.)

I see, I see. That's pretty messed up of those kids, but, kids tend to be cruel. No reason to stress it, right? Best revenge is to live true to yourself and all. ^^

let me tell you. they lost a good chuck of hair and clothing by the time I was through with them. my mother did not raise no victim, that's for sure.

I suppose you meant not to attack first and end up being the bully? well, rest easy on that note too.

BAAAAAAAAWWW The cute! :heart:

I am so totally convinced that Wolf sneaks out of the house every once in awhile and over to yours, just for this. XDDDD

DUDE, when is the AatR group going to start? Just for characters and creators to mingle and whatnot? That would be awesome? We can finally do all the things we didn't have a chance to in the tournament!!

I freaking love this picture, Waz! I'm going to print it out and stick it on my wall. Thank you!!
