@hpminorcharnet​‘s gtk our members challenge [Erin]: favorite minor characters - Oliver Wood

the rising star of the quidditch league // a sunshine boy // still a little starry-eyed

listen… i want shallura to be canon

i know you can ship a ship entirely in fanon but… fam… listen… i want shallura to be canon

i want an epic, sweeping love story where a canonically disabled character with a mental illness gets cast as the romantic hero. i want an Asian man to play the romantic lead.

i want a black woman to be the subject of a beautiful, heart-stopping romance that builds over several seasons. i want a kids tv show to portray a black woman as worthy of love and romance and heroic sacrifices and epic love stories. let a beautiful black princess be desired and wanted the way a white princess would be.

i want an interracial ship between two POC to get the kind of treatment that’s usually reserved for the whitest of white pairings. i want big dramatic moments and soft quiet scenes. i want all the cheesy rom-com cliches. gimme Shiro and Allura flirting with each other and getting flustered. gimme a cutesy episode where they go on a date and have fun.

i know canon isn’t everything. i know we have fanon works. i know we have all of that. but i want to see a cartoon give kids the message that love and romance is not just for able-bodied neurotypical white people.

i want shallura to be canon. i think it would be beautiful.

❝When I first met you on that boat–❞
                                     ❝We met on the street.❞
❝On the boat, that diamond you stole. After I got it back. I bought it. I’ve had it. For years.❞
                                      ❝What?❞
❝I knew. Even at the beginning. I knew I’d needed it. I… needed it. Just like… I need you.❞
