[Ask RPedia] Is There an Age Limit on RPing Certain Fandoms?

crazyrandomtruthfulairhead asked: Should you ever attack someone in the same verse all because of age and false accusations? On Twitter I get bullied and harassed for being 40 and passionate about Pokemon. The ones that do not only attack me but my friends thinking it’s me.

Since this is 100% not alright in any form, I’m assuming it’s more about having a place of semi-power and maybe-authority respond and give you a firm answer to hand off to others.

No, it’s not. There’s no age limits on what we love and enjoy. If grandpa gets mad we’re listening to music from his era we tell him to go away. It’s not something to haze people for, and especially not in such a manner that you attack other people for it. Unless the person is predatory, and luring kids into doing things they probably shouldn’t, there is no way this is okay. And even then it’s more about staying away from them than causing shit. People have a right to like whatever they want. Whatever appeals to them, no matter the age group, is what appeals to them

As long as they’re not hurting anyone, there’s literally no excuse for this behavior. Even then the only excuse is you feel like you have to retaliate, and that’s kind of just going to keep the cycle going. Never attack another person, never spread hate, never become a monster just because you don’t like a couple numbers attached to a name. Grow up, deal with the fact that there are differences in the fandom, and not everyone is going to be exactly like you and your friends. Accept them, and if you find something uncomfortable, leave them alone. Don’t hurt another living person just because you don’t like something. That is so horrible, how can you even bring yourself down to that level. Just step away, and remember that the reason that fandom even exists is because some 40-year-old man created Pokemon from scratch out of his own head for you to enjoy. Bet it’d be shitty if we told him that this kind of stuff isn’t for his age group huh?

001| Pokέmon 002| Pokέshipping 003| Misty<3!

001 | Pokemon

  • Favorite character: Misty. DOI.
  • Least Favorite character: … I don’t really have one but I guess it’s a three-way tie between Brock, Max, and Burgundy.
  • 5 Favorite ships (canon or non-canon): Pokeshipping, Contestshipping, Handymanshipping, Imageshipping, Geekchicshipping.
  • Character I find most attractive: Misty again!
  • Character I would marry: MISTY AGAIN.
  • Character I would be best friends with: MISTY A-G-A-I-N.
  • A random thought: Stop forcing me to constantly reaffirm my love for Misty, dammit!
  • An unpopular opinion: Ash is a good protagonist and doesn’t deserve the flak he receives by gamer fans who piss all over him not becoming a Master yet and not catching all of the Pokemon in the world (including legendaries).
  • My canon OTP: …….. P - Pokeshipping…??
  • Non-canon OTP: …………………. Geekchicshipping????
  • Most badass character: MISTY! :-D
  • Pairing I am not a fan of: Amourshipping!
  • Character I feel the writers screwed up (in one way or another): Way too many to name just one. In fact, let’s just say that basically all of them got screwed. Ash, Misty, Brock, Iris, Cilan, Serena, Jessie, James, etc.
  • Favourite friendship: ASH/MISTY! Or else possibly Ash/Pikachu and Ash/Clemont!

002 | Pokeshipping:

  • when or if I started shipping it: Four score and seven years ago…….. Or, more realistically, back when I was about ten/eleven years old. I’m going to be twenty-seven in a few months. I hope that puts things into perspective. XD
  • my thoughts: ILOVEITILOVEITILOVEITILOVEIT. getmarriedgetmarriedgetmarriedgetmarried.
  • What makes me happy about them: The way they were built up from not really liking anything to do with one another to being forced into one another’s company to slowly befriending each other, to wishing that they never had to be separated to… you know… unfortunately having to be separated.
  • What makes me sad about them: See the end of my most recent answer.
  • Things done in fanfic that annoys me: Hm, hardcore OoC Ash can get pretty nasty. I also don’t care for OoC Misty though, particularly when the writer makes her act subdued or soft-spoken.
  • Things I look for in fanfic: Good intro plot, good characterization, good grammar.
  • My kinks: I… don’t… know?? I don’t know if this is supposed to be sexual. If so, I don’t have those… but if not, then I love stories in which love is obvious between the two characters without an actual confession. I myself always try to write my fics that way.
  • Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: I would want Ash with Melody from the movie 2000 and Misty with… I don’t know… some other guy who’d make her happy? I guess that’s Rudy or Georgio. At least it feels like they’d treat her right.
  • My happily ever after for them: The “great cycle”. Ash restarting his original Pokemon journey in Kanto and getting carried away in a river just for Misty to fish him out. Either that or else an epilogue in which Ash is challenged by someone wishing to become a type-specialist Master and, though he doesn’t know it, it turns out to be Misty. It would end with her calling him “Mr. Pokemon Master” with a nostalgic smirk and him returning the gesture with “scrawny” or something like that, and then the whole scene fades to black as they do battle. I don’t know. It’ll never happen either way.

003 | Misty

  • How I feel about this character: IloveyouIloveyouIloveyouILOVEYOU.
  • All the people I ship romantically with this character: Ash. That’s my only serious ship. I also crack!ship Image and Champselysee.
  • My non-romantic OTP for this character: Also probably Image and Chamspelysee.
  • My unpopular opinion about this character:  I’m gonna go with my fallback headcanon that Misty never really wanted to be a water-type Pokemon Master and that’s why she was never shown constantly pursuing that dream.
  • One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon: I wish that she’d pursued aforementioned dream with more vigilance. Alas, she existed prominently during OS canon… *sigh*
  • My OT3: I don’t have one honestly. I usually don’t ot3 any of my otps.

anonymous asked:

Why do so many Pokemon fanartists draw May with such huge breasts? I often look through May fanart on both the Japanese sites and on deviantart, and most May solo art emphasizes her breasts or in various sexual poses.

Because in the beginning of AG May actually did have a well endowed chest for a ten year old, which was toned down in later series . Obviously it’s not as big as it’s emphasized in most fanart, but it stems from May just honestly having the biggest drawn chest in series before it was toned down and every girl after her was toned down, too. Either way it’s also just the fact that she’s a girl, you can search any pokegirl and find sexual art of them, but I do think it’s more common to find the huge breast thing with May compared to the others and that’s why I think that is. It’s gross obviously and I hate the sexualization, but it’s the internet, and it’ll continue to exist.
