listen i love noctis but whenever he says ‘erryday’ i’m hit w/ the feeling that i could sell that boy a bag of oregano for 40 bucks and he’d b like “nice thanks for the deal” and he’d smoke that entire bag of oregano and text me after like “damn that shit was strong when can i buy again”
My Jake stance: I don’t hate him. I like him as a character. (Less so as a person that I’d hang out with IRL, but I’d go hiking and rock climbing with him once or twice.) I just hate the writers’ favoritism, and the subsequent disproportionate screentime of him.
It's sad that there appears to be so much hate for the Autistic Keith headcanon. I am so confused right now because I thought it was such a great idea and so many autistic people said it was like them! I think you're amazing and so strong dealing with all of this right now and I want you to know I'm on your side.
Yeah, it’s a real bummer. I thought the fandom loved that headcanon until recently.
Thank you so much! It really means a lot to have you and other nice people supporting me and other autistic people during this. This whole thing has been pretty depressing, but I keep telling myself that a lot of people do care. You’re one of the people who keeps popping up in my activity feed for this, and it always makes me feel a bit better. ❤
exactly!! if anything the vlog gave a lot of evidence for autistic hc? his explanation about being unable to connect actually really reminded me of myself. I would always blame it on that I moved around a lot and spent a lot of time growing up in countries from which i spoke the language poorly. Anyway, back to keith. I find it quite disappointing that this is coming from a fandom that actually seems to really see how important representation is.
i guess that’s why people are now resorting to “there’s an alternative, ~normal explanation for all these autistic traits he’s displaying” instead of “there’s no evidence to support that”, actually… huh.
the most relatable part for me was when he was so hung up about the chant. “it doesn’t have to be complicated!” like, i could feel that frustration in my bones.
meanwhile, keith blamed his inability to connect with others on being galra, and feeling “alien” is something autistic people talk about all the time, so…
yeah, this fandom is all for bi lance/shiro with ptsd/etc. but as soon as autistic keith is brought up, excitedly claiming it’s canon is a Problem and they’re going to lecture you on why that’s not the case because keith is just xyz instead!!
like why are they so desperate to prove this HC wrong? it’s baffling.
To put it in the simplest form, Shiro’s going to love the ever-living fuck out of that boy for the rest of their lives.
No, but seriously – we clearly know how much Shiro means to Keith in the series, but it’s high time we see the full extent of how much Keith means to Shiro, which is obviously a lot from subtle cues but in his VLOG I want to hear him outright talk about how much faith he has in Keith, how much he appreciates him, how much he cares about him, how much he loves him. I have a need. A serious need.
