A/N: Hello! I realize I am a little late to my own party, but I wanted to “formally” introduce myself and personally post about this fic seeing as it’s my first contribution to the Eremika fandom aside from lengthy, shouty essays defending the ship and an intense makeout gif that apparently tainted someone’s innocence because it was actually pulled from a hentai I AM SO SORRY… but will probably be making more extremely nsfw eremika gifs from that very show, so, beware - or if you’re a perv like me, rejoice!

Ahem. I am the author of Touch, known as Fenroar Greyfront on fanfiction sites (Seems random, but I’ve had the pen name ever since I was an awkward preteen starting to write fanfiction and am kind of attached to it).

So, I had no clue that the Eremika AO3 feed was a thing, and was taken by surprise when my fic was suddenly on tumblr the minute I posted it elsewhere (I’m clearly a newb). But I’ve been seeing so much love thanks to that post, and am genuinely glad people are enjoying it. However, I felt obligated to post about the fic from my own blog, so here we are haha.

If you have not yet read it, and in-character canonverse Eremika with the hope of eventual smut at all intrigues you, please do give it a read, and let me know what you think - whether you absolutely hated it, or luffed it, feedback is an author’s lifeblood tbh, and I just wanna know what’s on your mind, y’know? <3

If you have already read it and/or commented, THANK YOU (I will personally hunt you down and thank you if you have reviewed/commented, if I have not yet already). Stay tuned for more :)

P.S. Feel free to cut out the A/N if you would like to reblog this post without my blabbing about random things and apparently tainting the innocent.

Sometimes, we blame ourselves for being too much elements. We blame ourselves for being too much fire that we start burning things without being able to stop it from turning to ashes. Or too much water that we drown islands with waves crushing down big brick walls. Or too much air we create typhoons on cities we pass by. Or too much land that we become uncharted territories, that there are parts of us left unexplored. But don’t be too hard on yourself for being who you are. Noone is at fault for you being too much fire or water or air or land. That makes you beautiful. Embrace the thought of being a walking disaster. Let yourself ignite and burn to know who is capable of your embrace. Let yourself be a vast ocean or endless land - keep great perhaps on the corners of your lips or in the lines on your skin. Let people explore you harder to know you. You were never an open book. Great wonders are hard to find, remember that. And by being too much air - be proud of it. Let people build stronger walls. Let people be conscious of the mistakes that they create that makes you a disaster. You are beautiful. With flames on your footprints, you create marks. With depth in your eyes, you become wiser. With wide arms, you embrace diversity. With tornadoes inside you, you become indestructible. You are beautiful with your calamities. Never be sorry for who you are.

Diversity in Voice Acting is a Tricky Subject

Recently, @motherboardtv reached out to Voice Actress Laura Bailey regarding her role in the fourth installment of the Uncharted franchise. Laura is a white actress who was cast as a black character. Here are Motherboard’s email  and Laura’s Response:

Here is the article in question and I am excited to see what is discussed in the ensuing podcast.

I personally have been having a lot of thoughts in regards to this area of diversity after white actress Ashly Burch was cast as Kamala Khan in the new Lego Marvel game. Shortly afterwards, Indian actress Priyanka Chopra was cast as Kamala Khan in the Marvel Avengers Academy mobile game. I love both of these women and Kamala Khan.

So, questions came up. Does it nullify representation if the character is voiced by someone outside of their race? Is there a racial bias in the voice acting industry like there is in traditional acting? How do we begin to approach anime dubs and roles that are outside of existing races and species?

I think there are several layers to this discussion and many of them I don’t know the answer to, because I am not in the industry. I think @motherboardtv did a great job in getting answers where they could. For me, it’s weird to see a push for more diversity from consumers than from the people of color within the industry. With #OscarsSoWhite and #WeNeedDiverse books, there appears to be an equal approach from inside the industry and out. With the info given to us from Motherboard, I feel like perhaps race should matter far less in casting voice actors so long as voice actors of color are not being barred from roles because of their race. However, since most of the prominent names I am familiar with in the VO world are white, does that speak to racial disparity?

I also think that a strong point from the article is one that we are more familiar with - there need to be more games created by people of color that feature stories of people of color. However, my feelings on the matter are hardly an answer.  There are a lot of factors that bleed into this issue and what I am hoping is that as we shine a light on the industry, we will be able to have an open discussion that leads to more diversity.  I would love to hear opinions from people in the industry, specifically voice actors of color, such as @rufiozuko.  I’ll leave you guys with some questions for discussion:


  •  Is representation in a video game or animated feature nullified if the character is voice by someone of a different race?
  • For voice actors of color: Do you feel there is strong racial disparity in casting?
  • Do you think having actors only play characters of their race will help them or will it bar them from other roles where they might excel?
  • Is there a happy medium where voice directors should seek actors that match the race of the character before expanding their search?
  • How should we approach characters who are not human?
  • Does the fact that Voice actors make far, far less money than traditional actors affect this discussion?
  • Keeping the above in mind, anime dubs are a huge portion of VO work - Is it fair or even possible to bar non-Japanese actors from this work?
