Dear Dystopian Writers,

I am diabetic and I do not want to die. I am a fighter, a survivor if you will. I’m not sure HOW LONG I would last in a dystopian world but there is one thing I am positive of: I would NEVER be the flat character in your stories that is like “I’m going to die anyway so please just leave me behind.”

Like… EXCUSE ME?

1) It’s just as inevitable for me to die as it is any of the other people there.

2) Even if I AM going to die, I’m not going to just stand there and let it happen faster. I want to live! Isn’t that in human nature? Just because I have a disability (in this case, diabetes) does not mean I won’t go down fighting.

3) NO ONE EVER WANTS TO BE LEFT BEHIND! Like my goodness! “Oh, go on. I’ll just wait here while the zombie hoard catches up…. and I’m alone… and it’s nighttime… in the woods… where there are also crazed maniacs with guns.” Who in their right mind would want to be left behind by themselves in an apocalypse!?

4) I would rather die because I was trying to live and my disability got in the way, than give up on life because I have a disability.

5) I am human. I care about myself and those around me. I want the world to be a better place. And I want to live a happy life.

So please please please! Stop using disability characters as instant sympathy grabbers. If you want people to feel for them when they die then make them worth feeling for. Make them the character that everyone loves. And make them independent! Unless they received the disability IN the apocalypse they should know how to take care of themselves. They’ll have to make adjustments but all of your characters have to do that so why should they be any different?

If you don’t know how to make a normal disability character then talk to someone with a disability. Or take constructive criticism from people with that disability after you’ve written the character. Or simply don’t make that character have a disability.

The way pop culture suggests an aversion to Courtney Love’s drug-addled mythology while espousing Cobain’s martyrdom, the way some communities shit on Lana Del Rey’s “aesthetic sadness” while simultaneously espousing emo bands fronted by men– it’s not to say that any of these genres, digressions, or affinities necessarily deserve respect, but there is a schism and a definite, unfair gender binary that favors troubled men over troubled women–and their right to be troubled. Men who grapple with issues that coincide with art and fame are canonized in death; women who do the same are made lesser, somehow, by their own unequivocal loss.
Fun, but specific OC questions
  • 1. What's their full name? If they're an alien and their name is in their native planet's language, have you thought about what it means?
  • 2. Say your OC made a playlist on Spotify. What bands would be on that playlist? Any specific genres?
  • 3. What kind of video games would they play? Any specific titles?
  • 4. What would their favorite cartoons be, and why? What would their favorite characters be?
  • 5. What's their favorite type of weather? Do they like to do anything specific on days when the weather is how they like it?
  • 6. If they're a fan of Hot Chocolate, Tea, or Coffee, how do they like either of those drinks prepared?
  • 7. What kind of animals would they like as a pet? What names would they give their pets if they got any? If they already have pet's what are their names?
  • 8. How does your OC keep track of time? Do they have a planner? A calendar?
  • 9. How do they write? Do they write in cursive? How do they dot their i's and j's? Do they have specific ways that they write certain letters?
  • 10. What's their favorite time of day?
  • 11. What kinds of foods and drinks do they like? Do they like certain foods to be fried? Do they prefer certain foods to be prepared hot/cold?
  • 12. If they were an actual character in an animated film or TV series, who would they be voiced by? Do they have a certain accent that the person would need to perfect?
  • 13. If you are an artist, and if your OC can draw as well, could you replicate what their artstyle looks like? Or, if you can't, could you describe it?
  • 14. If your OC owned a Tumblr blog, what kind of content would they post?
  • 15. How do they type? Do they use emojis? Do abbreviate and shorten words?
  • 16. If your OC was a film director, what kind of movies would they make?
  • 17. If your OC was a musical artist, what genres would they do?
  • 18. What type of singing voice does your OC have?
  • 19. Does your OC like to collect things? What kind of things do they collect?
  • 20. Was your OC inspired by anything? Another character? A person?
I'm curious

If I started writing John wick ones shots/imagines? Or even made side blog just for writing reader inserts with him. Would anyone be interested?

[[Update if this gets enough likes - at least 20-30 I’ll make the blog and start taking requests from people.]]
Billy Cranston and being unapologetically autistic

Billy Cranston a.k.a the Blue Ranger in the Power Rangers reboot, is one of my favorite film characters, probably of all time. Why? He is one of the first autistic characters I’ve seen on screen, books, or tv. “But, Kate what about all these autistic characters *points to BBC Sherlock and the one line about Aspergers” First of all, stop saying Sherlock’s autistic, Jenny, he’s a poor outdated stereotype in a white man’s circle jerking intellectual fantasy. But what I mean is, Billy is allowed to be autistic. And it’s portrayed pretty accurately, speaking as someone on the spectrum myself. So what’s the difference between Billy Cranston and what we’ll call “Hollywood Autism”?

First of the Hollywood Autistic never quite says they’re autistic. A few hints may be dropped, someone may wonder if they are, but if they’re in any genre that isn’t inspiration porn, it will remain up in the air. Billy says not long after we meet him, “I’m on the spectrum.” No question, no guesswork, he’s autistic. And no one really looks down on him for it.

Secondly, the Hollywood Autistic comes in two flavors: exaggerated caricature, or barely different from an allistic character. The first example is aloof, nonverbal, doesn’t get sarcasm or any jokes at all, hyperfixtates on a certain topic, and is almost always a suburban white boy. If they’re an adult, they’re basically a child in a grown man’s body. The second has one scene where they show autistic traits, and it is completely dropped after that one scene. Billy is neither of these characters. He has special interests that he focuses on (mining, art), the need for a routine (rearranging his pencils a certain way before he can use them), sensory issues (mostly with touch), he doesn’t get sarcasm, and he babbles (which could be interpreted as verbal stimming.) That last one brings us to the fact that Billy is allowed to stim! Stimming is often ignored with Hollywood Autistics, but Billy claps his hands when he gets excited, and babbles when he’s nervous. Seeing a character stim on screen without being seen as weird almost made me cry. And, to top it all off, Billy is black. This may not seem like a big deal, but autism goes underdiagnosed in minorities, and the stereotypical autistic is always a white boy. Billy’s representative of autistics as a whole, rather than the stereotypes.

In conclusion the world needs more Billy Cranstons and less Sherlocks and Sheldon Coopers.

7 Reasons to See Baby Driver

This is a little out of my lane for the Knitpool blog, but I am just so excited about this movie.

1.  Edgar Wright. He  seems to be able to take any genre of film and make me like it. (I’m not a fan of car chase movies, with the exception of the Blues Brothers.) Watching this movie is like drinking a locally brewed beer. It’s not filmed. It’s crafted with great care.

2. The music in the movie is not a soundtrack, it’s as integral as a character.

3. The cinematography is really clever. Watch the movie closely, and you will see little jewels along the way. 

4. Baby has a black foster parent without the movie being about race. It’s not even a sub theme in the movie. (It’s a great relationship, and I feel like there should be another whole movie about those two characters.)

5.  Baby uses ASL without the movie even highlighting this. Language is language, people.

6. There are characters with disabilities, but this is not a movie about disabilities. In other words, the movie is about people. All kinds of people, and that is a good thing.

7. Finally, Jon Bernthal plays a tatted up jackass, and I can never get enough of that. 

Prompt 28

Living in an apartment complex is a crazy hacker with way too much fancy intimidating security protecting his door, a tough looking gangster who listens to Disney music and sings in the shower loudly enough for the whole complex to hear, a straight A college student that wants nothing more than an unexciting college life and some peace and quiet, an author that always asks weird questions and looks like a zombie whenever They actually exit their apartment, a cult leader who always has strange characters over and a troublesome snake, and a hard of hearing old lady that misinterprets everything that goes on.

The following is a rough transcript of my own recorded video footage (which I’m still trying to convert since I lost the USB cord and am currently looking for it lol). 

Q&A: If you guys could do, like, any kind of movie genre, what would you do? Since I personally think Jared – er, Jensen and Misha should be in a romcom.

Jared: [pause] [smirk on face] …I’d direct that.

Jensen: [holds back a laugh-snort, schools expression] You’ve never directed anything.

Jared: That’s my point. I’d direct that.

Jensen: That’s what it’ll take. The scenario. You’re like - “No, okay, I can’t pass up this opportunity”

Jared: [folds hands, begs] Please please please please.

[Jared provides a serious answer]

Jared: In the meantime it [inaudible] – I’d be directing a romcom with this guy. And wherever Mishkavich is.

Jensen: I’ve said it before. I’d love to do a Western…slash romcom with Misha.
