i was tagged by @castleoblivions thanks you brie!!!

RULES: Choose any three fandoms (in random order) and answer the questions. Then tag some friends.

I choose (based on the merch i have in my room):

  • Fullmetal Alchemist
  • Durarara!!
  • Bleach

The first character you loved:

  • Edward Elric because the height jokes…i can relate
  • Masaomi Kida, granted i watched the first season when i was 14 so he was a dork to me
  • Rukia Kuchiki b/c i finally had a main female character that wasn’t ultra feminine or did things for a guys’ attention

The character you never expected to love so much:

  • GREED!!! Like in the original 2003 series he was a major ass. Then by reading the manga and watching Brotherhood, I totally understood Greed. The first incarnation was still a bit of a jerk, but later on he grew some more humanity and his quotes are some of the most relateable concepts I’ve ever heard/read in fiction
  • Izaya Orihara…I have a love hate relationship with him (like basically the entire cast of the series). I hated his guts during the first season when I initially watched it. When I rewatched it again after I aged a bit, I loved his character because he’s complex and fully admits he’s an asshole.
  • Byakuka Kuchiki - I pegged him off as an asshole the instant he came on screen but learning the reasons why he did what he did…I felt for him.

The character you relate to most:

  • Riza
  • Shizuo
  • Rukia

The character you’d slap:

  • Roy for that miniskirt line, but I still love him
  • Izaya, for merely existing
  • None, I’d slap the creator for that whack-ass ending

Three favorite characters:

  • Edward, Alphonse, and Winry
  • Shizuo, Celty, and Shinra
  • Rukia, Ichigo, and Ishida

A character you liked at first but not so much anymore:

  • none
  • none
  • Ori*hime - but that’s mostly due to the fact that her creator ruined her character by reducing her to a simple love interest when she had the potential to be a pivotal person to the series; other than that, i still love her, i’m just disappointed and frustrated that she fell into the shounen trap for female characters

A character you did not like at first, but they’ve grown on you:

  • Hohenheim, I hated his guts in the original series, but after Brotherhood he’s definitely one of my faves in the series
  • none
  • Aizen - since i started the series when i was 10 i just plain out hated him. But as I grew up with the series I saw that he was a badass antagonist and the potential with him was infinite but well…that ending…he’s now happily with his chair soulmate for eternity 

3 OTPs:

  • Edwin, Royai, and characters x happiness
  • Shinra x Celty are really my only otp, my ot3 within the series is the raira trio and my brotp is Shizuo x Celty
  • ICHIRUKI (idgaf it’s more canon than the actual ending ships), Ishihime, and Ginran

tagging: @seoukjins, @katsvra, @xatsushis, @a-ogiri, @cloudpart, @sarukui, and anyone else that wants to do this (don’t feel forced to answer)

don’t worry, i am mad about how everyone in this movie’s cast (except the bleached pineapple) is beautiful and perfect. though i can probably wax the most poetic about Credence. 

Everyone else it’s probably just like “FUCK THIS IS SO UNFAIR FUCK FUCK FUCK I’M SO ANGRY”

But speaking of kick-ass female protagonists, Lara Croft FTW?

I never got into the Tomb Raider franchise, so I can only really comment from an outsider’s perspective. When it was in its hay day, I was still living in a household that discouraged me from playing video games. Most of my gaming pre-college was limited to playing the random arcade machines in my town (Simpsons, TMNT, X-Men, Street Fighter, Time Crisis, etc.), whatever my friends owned (many hours of Mortal Kombat and MarioKart), whatever games my brother had (which weren’t really my taste) or edutainment games for PC that were mostly terrible (though I had a deep love of Where in Time is Carmen Sandiego? which fed into my love of history). It wasn’t until I had moved out that I discovered Bethesda, then Bioware, and dove head-first into gaming. Tomb Raider just never made my list of franchises to try and jump into, given that I was so far behind in it.

I am interested in how for years Lara Croft has been held up as an example of Badass Female Protagonist™ and Sexist Male Fantasy™ simultaneously, depending on who you ask. Given that I’ve never experienced the games directly, I have never really known where to fall on that spectrum. But from what little I have seen of the games, she seems like a pretty awesome character - smart, resourceful, and able to get the job done. I think it’s mostly her physical appearance that rubs some people the wrong way… but if a female character is well written, then I don’t have a problem with her being presented as conventionally attractive. To focus exclusively on a female character’s physical attributes and disregard every other aspect of her seems to be more objectifying to me, tbh.
