I saw a pic with Mishima in his full gym clothes and he was so cute this monster happened
anyway I feel like someone as tiny as Mishima playing sports would be so cute to watch? I like to think he’s pretty decent at it since he was in a sports club (I assume to stand out, but well things didn’t work out.… .)
i also like to think of Ryuji as the Tired Best Friend who knows Akira has a crush on Mishima but has to watch Mishima unknowingly side-step all the damn time (gdi ryuji, blocking me at the school fest too)
I understand how “women and femmes” caught on, because there was a desire to describe a group of people associated through the general lens of womanhood/misogyny/lesbianism when some of those people are non-binary or otherwise not strictly identified as women
But the thing is:
1) this usage distances the word femme from it’s specifically lesbian connotation and history
2) and it alienates butch and gnc women by the implicit association of womanhood and femininity (this, when the phrase is not explicitly used in an argument that ‘masculine people’ exert power over ‘feminine people’)
and like… ultimately it’s an incredibly lazy, vague shorthand that does not really represent a cohesive group of people yet somehow still manages to throw a ton of women and nb woman-aligned people under the bus because they don’t fall under some bullshit umbrella of feminity
-Give me a Lance that tries to keep his feelings hidden; the Lance that tucks his problems in his back pockets to think about in his own time.
-Give me a Lance that doesn’t want to talk about his problems, because he doesn’t want to burden anyone with them.
-Give me a Lance that for once in his life isn’t actually looking for attention, because he knows there’s a war going on and his feelings aren’t going to solve anything.
-Give me a Lance who knows that his teammates love and appreciate him, but it still HURTS when they make jokes about his feelings, credibility, or his dedication to their cause.
-Give me a Lance that isn’t as good at fighting like Keith, good with technology like Pidge, good at engineering or cooking like Hunk, a natural-born leader like Shiro or Allura, handy like Coran, but can always come up with a good plan and is loyal to a fault.
-Give me a jack-of-all-trades Lance, who might not be proficient in any particular skill, but has a knack for doing the things he needs to do.
-Give me a Lance who’s smart in a different way, not in the way Pidge is, but his own way that is just as important and intelligent.
-Give me a Lance who, underneath his loud proclamations and arrogance, has insecurities that he needs to work through.
-Give me a Lance character arc with him overcoming these habits and feelings, growing into a respected member of team Voltron.
-Give me a Lance who will eventually learn to love himself, flaws and all; a Lance who understands that he will always be part of Voltron, even if sometimes it might not seem like he is.
