Hi, I'm Haru, yes Dryanpierce is the name of my account, but for consistency with all my other social media I have it as Dryanpierce but I go by Haru. I am a gay 20 year old artist, cosplayer, and sometimes sort of model I guess, who loves Legend of Zelda, Linked Universe, Pokémon, Hades, and just like a lot of things. You can find me on Instagram under the name @dryanpierce
We looked inside some of the posts by dryanpierce and here's what we found interesting.
dude your lego collection is so cool are those lord of the rings and lego castle sets?
Thank you! And yes I’ve got some Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Star Wars, some Indiana Jones Lego sets. There are also some Lego City Sets in there too. They’re actually a collection shared between my brother and I, that we put together over our childhood. And funny enough it isn’t all of them we have some that just couldn’t fit on the shelf.
I finally did some more Linked Universe Wild cosplay! I missed doing it! But I’m really proud of how this came out. It took me around 3 hours to do. I think I might start looking into getting some prosthetic stuff to do scars because using eyeshadow takes forever. Also I know my hair isn’t a mess like Wild’s normally would be but I’m still proud of it.
Also yes I am holding a stuffed animal that looks like Epona.
I’m gonna post more soon, I just wanted to have this little storyline of photos separate and on its own.
This cosplay is based on the works of @linkeduniverse
Okay well here’s an update on my Leafy Seadragon Zora OC for @prisiidon (sorry for another tag) Zora Mer-May 2021! I’m very proud of how he looks and this is really my first full venture into color on digital.
I’ve still got a bit more to do, and this has been such a challenge to do. But I’m learning so much from it and I’m so proud.
I got an Ocarina yesterday and I’ve been so excited to take pictures with it. I’m lucky that the ocarina came with a music book that had good instructions so I’m learning rather quickly. Though I did play the flute for 5 years so that may have helped.
I may or may not working on a Zora OC based on a Leafy Seadragon for Zora Mer-May. And I know it’s still April, but I couldn’t help it, I’m so excited to work on this and like my brain was like “you haven’t posted art in a long time... do it, do it now before people think you can’t draw anymore” so yeah.
If you wanna know more about Zora Mer-May look at @prisiidon’s latest post. (Also just check them out in general their art is amazing and well they are a wonderful person.).
I am loving how this all looks from the ears and tail to the gloves and claws, the fangs, the thigh high stockings and god I love the collar. I’m just ahhh so happy with it. I feel adorable! I even put some light makeup on for this because I just felt hair so cute!
On a side note I’m turning 20 tomorrow so that’s cool lol. :)
I want to preface this with I am not a mental health professional, I do not have a degree and I am stating my own views, based on my personal experience, and what I’ve observed in myself. I am only going to be really talking about things that apply to myself, and what I have grown up around and what I have learned as I have worked on my own mental health. If I am wrong in what I’m about to say, anyone has the right to tell me so.
Also just so you know this is going to be long because I ramble. So I’m sorry in advance.
This is beyond true. Our response to trauma, and how we make ourselves feel comfortable, are not always something others will understand, it can be the way we dress, the way we act, the things we avoid, our body language, our habits, and who we are as people can be things that other’s find odd or strange. Our coping mechanisms that are out of the ordinary are valid. However, as the original post details a difference between coping mechanisms and not taking accountability for actions and bad behavior.
I am a person who due to how I have been raised, and how I’ve been treated, I have a tendency to bottle up all my negative emotions, until I finally let it all out and lash out. I will be distraught and lash out over something someone said or did that I interpreted to be pointed, or unfeeling. When in reality, I am in that moment being hypersensitive, due to a combination of low self-esteem is low, existing mental health disorders, as well as the treatment I have experienced throughout my life.
But that is not and never will be an excuse for my bad behavior. It can be an explanation for why I did something, but my own personal trauma is never a valid reason that legitimizes, passive aggressive behavior, or accusing them of wrongdoing or being insensitive to me, towards the people who have done nothing but support me. In some ways I am lucky that I have friends, who don’t tolerate that type of behavior out of me. However it’s up to me to make amends and to work on my own behavior in order to make sure that I don’t hurt the people around me.
Through therapy, I have learned that while I am a survivor, that does not exempt me from acting in abusive or harmful ways. I have learned, that going to counseling, and actively recovering from emotional abuse, is both for helping me cope with and recover from my experiences. Recovery is also about learning how to not make sure my own trauma, is not the reason for someone else’s. I have started to identify my own emotional tendencies that signal I’ll be more likely to spiral, and how to avoid situations, topics, and concepts that have a tendency to trigger me and put me into a spiral. I am learning to better hold myself accountable by making amends when I negatively impact those around me, but more importantly by learning about my own behavior and working on understanding how to better handle my emotional tendencies, so those around me aren’t caught in the crosshairs.
There is a lot more I could say, but also remember, I do not mean you can’t lean on those around you for support. Getting support from family and friends, can be very powerful and helpful. But remember, your mental health is your own responsibility. Those around you can be sensitive and understanding to what you are going through, but it’s not their job, to change their lives to fit your needs.
Sorry for the ramble, and hopefully this will be something more than just me rambling about my own mental health. I hope this doesn’t come off as me “saying you should live like I do, and that I’m doing this all right”. Because I haven’t, and this is just a snapshot of my ongoing recovery, and it’s not as clean cut as all of this. It’s been up and down, and this is just what I’ve learned. Recovery is not linear, and everyone will have different experiences, and what I’ve done may not or will not work for others.
Thank you, if you read this far. I wish y’all the best.
I don’t know if anyone needs to hear this but “we all respond to trauma in different ways, not just pretty palatable ways” and “we are accountable for our own actions, even actions born from trauma” are not contradictory statements
Meet Dorian Vayne the newest Host Club Member, he’s the “Nervous Type”. While he’s outgoing and kind, he’s easy to fluster and embarrass and has a bit of a stutter at times. He’s the youngest son of the American Tech Company, Vayne Enterprises... (the pun on Wayne Enterprises was not intentional whatsoever). He’s also very gay. 😳
But yes I created an OC host to cosplay. I am probably going to draw a lot of him soon as Ouran had been on the brain for a bit.
I guess I officially qualify as the homosexual supporting cast. I can’t decide if I’m trying to be Tamaki, or an AU version of myself as a host. It took a while to come in but I’m so happy it did, but now I gotta get back to doing school work.
