In a modern day society, the mere presence of color or any unregulated music is banned completely. These are the only rules, but yet they destroy the freedom of individuality. Any violator of these rules is arrested and never seen again.
However, there is an underground organization by the name of Bangtan. When the sun rules the sky they’re perfect students of the high-class that obey every rule. But under the moonlight they fight for revolution.
Every month, on the night of the full moon, they host parties just outside the city. Outside of the rules. With masks covering their identities seven of them perform an array of music while their followers tear up the city and leave a spectrum of color.
When the sun sets the sky ablaze once more, the pristine white of the city is covered in vibrant colors with one statement:
DON’T STAND OUT OR THEY’LL DESTROY YOU WE ARE THE YOUTH AND WE ARE SICK OF ALL THE PRETTY LIES
— shame women for being women
— harass women for being connected to Harry/Louis
— harass Harry/Louis and their families
— force sexualities and genders
— shame those with substance abuse problems
— make fun of a perfectly healthy baby
— hope that the aforementioned baby (Louis’s beautiful son, Freddie Reign Tomlinson, born on January 21st) dies
— attempt to forcibly bring people out of the closet, if they are in
— slander/libel entire families
— fetishize two men who have said they are not in a relationship (while one is openly straight)
— deface legal documents
— get pissy when the media and common sense prove them wrong
— claim to own colors/emojis
— spread false statements about a small baby
— disregard basic human rights
— make/have made deaths about their ship (i.e. George Michael, Jay, etc.)
— claim to be LGBT+ advocates when they stereotype every single person and label them as what they think they should be
— think the only two sexualities are gay and straight
— are abusive, threatening, misogynistic cowards that hide behind anons and terrorize people for living their lives
having a white character doesn’t make you automatically racist, the racism aspect stemmed from
the whitewashing, the racially ambiguous ocs to be “ in” and not get dragged bc i cant be racist my oc is tan!!
You can have white characters. But be critical of yourself if those are the only characters you make.
We are just tired of only them getting attention in the fandom.
You can be white and have brown characters, just be wary of
the privilege you have and how the fandom prefers white creators as opposed to creators of color.
And if you are white and have ocs of color, make sure you REBLOG creators of colors ocs and art.
We are tired of white people being praised for things like this and then having actual PoC being overlooked and ignored
and realize that your oc is just that, an oc, whereas for fellow poc our characters of color are a statement, a testimony to how far they’ve come in loving themselves and their culture, since many of us only made white ocs due to internalized racism, a way to make visibility and representation in media that otherwise wouldn’t be there.
You as a white person having characters of color is not progressive or radical, but POC who have been taught to hate themselves and their cultures because of the institutions and societal ideals YOUR people put in place for us, turning against them and making ocs that represent them, that are beautiful and heroic and loved, now thats radical.
the first installment of my thesis/essay series is finally here!!!
also: color marking is also a part of close reading, so if you catch me mentioning that and you’re like what the heck! just know it only means analyzing something in great deal, like with a magnifying glass. it’s literally close reading.
me when color marking was first explained to me: why color marking?? isn’t it just a waste of time?? what the heck this is hard?!
me now: let me color mark every chapter of this 500 page book !!
what you’ll need:
a copy of your literature that you’re cool with writing on
possibly sticky notes or extra white space on your copy of writing
5+ different colored pencils/highlighters/pens. (it’s awesome if you use them all)
a single, black pen
the official how-to part:
this whole process can be a little intimidating, so just start by taking out a single color and reading through your piece.
make a key in the extra space on your paper or on sticky notes. doing it on the computer is okay, but your highlights can’t really overlap and it’s really time consuming if you’re only highlighting single words or a long piece.
that’s literally it. highlight stuff more than once, only once, or not at all. as long as it fits your pattern.
other stuff to help you out:
here is a little example i made to help guide you. it’s a prose poem, ‘the colonel’ by caroline forché. there are many, many, many patterns in this one, way more than i listed and marked, but i just thought it’d be helpful to have an example. plus this is the piece i learned color marking with and i want more people to read and analyze it because it’s sooo amazing.
make sure you have at least three examples for each patten you find. (for example, on my example above, i have 3 gray highlights and at least three for my other patterns.
the more patterns you have, the easier the rest of the essay will be. i recommend AT LEAST seven, but five should be the absolute minimum.
it’s super easy once you get the hang of it, and it works for novels, short stories, and poems.
message me if you’d like to know anything else about color marking or if you’d like more examples of writing to color mark as well! i’d be happy to make a masterpost of them.
keep in mind this is only step one, i have wayyyy more to show you :-) hope it’s helpful! xx
