*inhales deeply* SO back in 2013, I made a shitty Ace Attorney PowerPoint so my bf could have context to all the shitty AA doodles I did. I’ve dug up this relic and decided to update it with all the hip and happening characters and plot. It’s spoiler free imo, except Mia, but it’s like known by anyone who has played past case 1-1, so….
AAI slides were done primarily by @doodleblah because I never got around to playing those and she loves them. Not everyone is on here because they’re just the characters I primarily draw so sorry von Karma, Kristoph, Dahlia, Fulbright, etc
Given the debate going on over a-spec representation in the media (given the appearance of Jughead and Raphael, two canonically aroace characters, in Riverdale and Shadowhunters), I felt this needed to be said:
Aro representation is just as important as ace representation, and erasing aroace characters’ aromanticism is still erasure if their asexuality is portrayed.
Practice for a new style on one of my favourite villagers from Animal Crossing: Freya! It’s not much, and I apologize, but I hope you like this style as much as I do! I’ll be trying to practice it more when I can.
Your Honor I Phoneix Wirgthworth plead guilty to being the most unthoughtful husband for forgetting to pick up the Sliver Tip tea my wonderful, smart, accomplished husband Mr. Miles Wrigthworth desperately needed to wake his ass up so he could keep being the wonderful, smart, accomplished husband who pays the bills and…
While perusing the internet I saw one of those pictures where the girlfriend is wearing her boyfriend's shirt and translated it to this a sleepy caffeine deprived man who wears his husband’s blazer to properly mock him about his transgressions. Which instead of annoying Phoniex it smitten him.
Give me aces who are cutesy and adorable, or tough as nails and complex!
Give me aces who are happy with friends!
Give me aces in happy romantic relationships!
Give me aces where their ace-ness isn’t the end of the character or is thrown away for the “one”.
Give me aros who have good friends!
Give me aros that are kind and sweet!
Give me aros who have meaningful relationships!
Give me aros where their aro-ness isn’t the end of the character or is thrown away when the writers want “romance” in the plot.
Give me aroaces that are warm and nice!
Give me aroaces that are happy go lucky!
Give me aroaces with happy lives!
Give me aroaces where they aren’t some sort of “cold hearted” person who needs to be “fixed” to be happy.
It’s not hard. Aces and Aros are people and a lot of people want to see themselves in a character. A true writer doesn’t say “but it’s too hard.” a true writer says “I want my readers to see themselves in the characters I put my heart and soul into. So I will do my best.”
