The cosplayer who did yellowface for their mystic messenger cosplay hasn’t taken down the photos despite their apology (Which I now realize it was the most fake and half-assed apology ever) and STILL continues to do those makeup methods to make their eyes look a different shape.
All they’re proving is that they actually don’t care about the feelings of Asian people who were uncomfortable and offended by their methods. They just said sorry to try and stamp out our feelings and make us feel guilty; they really don’t care. That’s disgraceful and I hope they realize how awful they’re being towards Asians, how it perpetuates to the racism and mockery we still are to a Eurocentric society, and I hope they get their comeuppance soon.
Simon could probably win the award for worst luck in one single day. Not only did his girlfriend break up with him, but his roommate, Baz ,is planning revenge. Not on him, but on Agatha, with the totally insane and probably doomed plan of pretending to be a couple to win Watford Kings at the Senior Dance. It may be crazy, but Simon has hope that it just might work
(ALSO thumbs up if you get the Coraline reference *finger guns*)
And when I’ve thought I’ve seen it all in this fandom....
They made a friggin TV Serie on Larry, and the fandom behind it.
Um um um…
At first I was kinda cringey - Like what if this series make the Larries seem more ridiculous to the public eye? Like you know, tapping into the stereotype of obsessive teenage girls with gay fetish lmao. Well I mean, we kinda are. But that’s not all we are. Not all of us are teenage girls (not anymore). We have grown to be adults, who are intelligent and rational… and yet we choose to stay in the fandom, because we are captivated by the hidden beauty that the public and mainstream media has chosen to ignore. And honestly, we don’t need the world to think we are crazier than what our image already is.
But on the other hand, this might forces the public to realize, that a fandom’s fascination with slash fics is not the minority. And I’m not only talking about 1D Larry. Slash fandoms are the biggest and most publicized fandom in the fanfiction world. (Drarry and other Harry slash fics in Harry Potter Verse, Stucky in Marvel MCU, etc.). Granted, most of us are hiding behind closets and pen names. But it would be amazing if people realize that this is a thriving and fascinating underground world to be in.
And it’s not just about the smut. People need to realize that there are countless of fanfics out there that are amazingly written, and more gripping, more beautiful, and basically are even better than actual published books out there. Anyone who has been in the fanfic world knows this. And maybe it’s time for the world to realize this too.
Anyway, if Truth Slash Fiction TV serie is done tastefully, this might be a powerful way of letting the world to know more about Larry, and make them realize that yeah, I guess Larry might be true.
Meanwhile, lets just enjoy some Twitter meltdown hilarious goodness…
I mean. Henry and Tommy. Um. Can you get anymore obvious? Lmao.
But yeah, I suppose that’s kinda the point.
The writers and producers are basing their promotions and success on the power of the fandom.
And despite of my discomfort, at the end of the day I just hope the effort is genuine and full of well intentions.
