black-characters

Other fact about the TARDIS team. The shippping. The shipping. Like, I don’t see a lot of young, conventionally attractive white people you can pair up with the Doctor, or together for that matter. (My apologises to Bradley Walsh, it’s nothing personal, maybe people will disagree.)

Even with fandoms’ usual tendencies to ignore sapphic ships - some prominent examples excluded - and villainise or push aside POC, there’s such a good chance that a lot of our main ships will be interracial. That the Doctor/Yasmin will have more than 4 works on AO3. That after 12 years of the fandom treating the show’s black male characters even worse than the show often already does, the Doctor/Ryan might be something people will make 56893467 gifsets about. Or hey - that Yasmin/Ryan will be the next big thing.

We don’t know who these people are yet, of course, right now that’s just probability. But I’m here for that.

Prompt: #42 - “The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.” - Oscar Wilde

Excerpt:

As soon as Remus heard the moving of furniture from the classroom beside his, he felt dread steal through him. Some of the other teachers had warned him, so he couldn’t say he didn’t know it was coming. Still, it had been four days since the beginning of the school term, and he’d hoped the warnings had been a light form of hazing.

“So, the other day, we discussed Keats and the influence of Lord Byron upon—”

Shouts from the other room drowned him out, and he raised his voice. “We discussed Keats and the influence of Lord Byron upon Keats’ poetry and his—”

The shouts became screams of pain and horror, and Remus froze. What was going on over there? “Just a moment,” he told his class, heading for the door.

Your post about white slave owners' wives reminded me about how in the new Roots (which is terrific btw), people, especially white women, took the focus away from the black characters to Nancy Holt, a white woman who was a Yankee spy (but still had a slave?) and they were like WOW LOOK AT THAT SEE NOT ALL WHITE PEOPLE ARE BAD! GIRL POWER! and ignore all the black women in the series.

Yep! When Kizzy was getting raped and shit they didn’t care. But here we have the white woman who turns out to be a spy, gets killed and now they care. Like, Nancy was the feminist icon of roots to most women but there were tons of black women in roots who had the spot light and were more feminist than privileged Nancy ever was.  

Yep like you said, they ignored all the black women :/

Please talk to me about the scrappy little gingers.

I just adore them both so much!?! They’re fierce and gay and ginger and frequently blood splattered and they look like mermaids while sneaking onto ships! And i love the parallels between them. They’re such survivors, they’re both so resilient but also so vulnerable. They’re so opposite in a lot of ways, but their core personalities have so many similarities. Like, I feel like of all the characters they’re the ones who, with the very select few people they decide to love, are the most fiercely and violently loyal… (and they’re both described by thomas/max as “true”)

They’re also the characters who deal the most with being labelled “monsters”. Especially in season 2 with their sort of parallel storylines about their queerness and their perceived monstrousness and the way they both struggle with their true identities vs the identities they present to the world… I have a very long list of favorite black sails characters, but those two are definitely the ones I feel the strongest emotional connection to

Not all Asian people are light skinned and mixed Japanese people exist so i don't know wtf they're talking about

i honestly bet every single person who called me a racist behind anon for drawing izuku and other characters black is a white person who can’t stand to see black and dark skinned characters in their precious fandom

anonymous asked:

Can I ask what you heard about Runaways being bad?

well that it was anti-black considering its only black character ended up being a bad guy and the whole thing with xavin and that character dating a lesbian when their gender was never really defined properly? idk what else but that’s some of the criticisms i’ve seen of it but i haven’t read it.

Finn : a complexe, well-rounded, loveable black character

Hux : a white guy we saw 3 minutes in the movie, who said 3 lines, so 
insignificant I didn’t even remember he was there after seeing the movie
