Despite all the incredible previews, I’ll admit I was a little wary going into Moo Moo, only because racial profiling is a really heavy topic to cover in ~22 minutes, especially in a comedy. I spent a lot of time thinking about how the conflict between Terry and Holt might play out. My fear was either the episode would slip into “after school special” territory and ultimately present a superficial, overly simplistic depiction of the issue, or veer all the off to the other end and give us a dark, bleak ending devoid of that hope and optimism that makes B99 so special. Nothing against B99 – I’ve just been burned by many a show before, and this is a topic that could be an absolute disaster in the wrong hands.
But then there’s this? A show that is thoughtful and nuanced while showing us the horrors of racial profiling and the complexities of reporting it, that doesn’t shy away from the fact that we still have a lot of work to do but also allows Terry and Holt to have their own personal victory? That covered a super serious subject, including a conversation where two beautiful young black girls asked questions they should never have to ask, but still allowed for moments of joy and laughter that felt genuine? And that did it all in about twenty minutes, wrapping up on a beautifully bittersweet note that was just the right tone for an episode of this level of importance?
I’m just in awe. And I feel really, really lucky that we have so many incredible people involved with this show who share it with us.
Ho god, I love this character and his different costume (I know he has more than those one, but I choose my favorites ;) ) and I like to experiment my style on this one, add some details OwO
Also I take the opportunity here to annonce that I’m opening another tumblr page where I will reblog the stuff that I like and answer a lot more questions! I do that because I always forbid myself to reblog on this blog, so people who comes won’t get lost between my art and the other’s. Plus, that kind of annoys me to mix my art and just some post where I talk, I have the feeling that it can annoy people who just want to see animation >< But I think it’s quiet sad to not help people to have some views or reblog or struggle with answering questions :(
If anyone sees this (and if you don’t mind) pls like/reblog or say in the comments if you’re a bts blog (doesn’t have to be 100% although i do follow very few multifandom blogs–you know who you are and you are very special).But since I’m 99% bts and Jin biased I’d like to follow more blogs too, and of course if you’re a content creator: gifs/edits/gfx/art i’d love to check out your blog!
found out by accident that @tyranttortoise and i are apparently birthday twins? because the world is just really beautifully weird like that sometimes. and what with that uf sans jacket she posted herself in, i decided to indulge in my own love of this edgy skeleton for my own birthday break time i gave myself and to wish her a happy birthday at the same time.
so happy birthday, ty! what a good day to have a birthday - i say, totally unbiased. <3
I’ve received a lot of messages saying that my theme being broken might be one cause for people not reblogging/commenting as much as they used to. Also my bio is cut off for some people with a specific screen definition/size (the part with my e-mail for work contact, the part about how I don’t take requests, and the part where I say if commissions are open or not) . The “next page” button is also cut off for some people. The reblog button is broken. My Patreon link is missing. etc.
I suck at html shit but the friend who did my original theme is coming to visit in a few days so I will see with her if we can fix all of that. Sorry about all of this.
I can’t be honest without making some people deeply uncomfortable. I can’t be honest without putting myself at significant risk. I can’t be honest without trying hard to do so. I can’t be honest without a steep cost. I can’t be honest without incentive. I can’t be honest…
