don't anime

My edit ❖  Hoshi to Kuzu - Don’t Worry, Be Happy

-Lamadridmari

  • Me: When you get older, you just never find the time to read books anymore.
  • Me: *finds time to read a 200k fanfiction in the span of two days.*

It looks like Yuuri and Victor are crashing some wedding and Yuuri’s like at the point where he’s tipsy enough to tell really good stories about drunk Phichit but like, not tipsy enough to start going into stripper banquet mode

AN ODE TO FANFICTION WRITERS:

FROM YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD FANFIC CONSUMER

Here’s to the newbies just starting out, the ones discovering their ability to twist and bend plots, characters and places to their will for the first time,

To the old faithfuls, who have kids at home and a full-time job but somehow still find the time to make us forget for a while,  

To the students who publish one-shots and sagas in-between study sessions,

To the ones who posted that one fic years ago and have since moved on, but whose story meant (and still means) so much to so many readers,  

To those of you who publish short, little things that pack the emotional punch of a freight train,

To the ones who update faithfully, and to the ones who don’t,

To the ones who weave lyrics into their stories, and the ones who deal in nothing but angst,

To those who don’t write in their native language, 

To the brave ones who do it despite their fear of rejection or criticism, 

To the ones who like to write with their friends, and the ones who do it alone because their friends wouldn’t understand, 

To the ones who spend hours researching in order to to make their world as real as possible, 

To to the poets and novelists and essayists and dreamers:  

Every single one of you is precious.  

You, along with all the other fandom artists and creators, lift us up and give us hope.  You make us laugh, you make us cry, you make us think and question and wonder.  You help us escape, sometimes, when we need it most.  You bring the unimaginable to life, you translate lofty words into ones we can smell, hear and taste, and you continually encourage and inspire us.  You’re wonderful and powerful and courageous and so, so loved, even if we aren’t always the best at letting you know it.  So this is for those of you with empty comment sections, with a concerning lack of kudos/likes/favs/bookmarks. Your stories make a difference, and they always will.  

So, from all of us to you:  

Thank you.

Fanon Lotor be like

i am not even sorry just take this

Not really in the mood for ecchi mangas rn but I’m bored af, let’s see how bad this is gonna be-

Wait- so THE LADY ARMOR IS ACCURATE AND DOESN’T DO THE BOOB-ARMOR STYLE?! HELLO YES YOU HAVE MY ATTENTIO- no wait I’m not falling for that, could be like that one time with the anime lady’s basketball and have ““cutesy”“ weak moves and no actual powerful action-

*wheezes* ok you have 90% of my attention-

HELLO YES, NOW (combining the points from the previous statement) YOU HAVE

100%

OF MY ATTENTION

How the FUCK did an anime from the FUCKING 90s manage to be more fucking progressive than like 90 percent of the anime produced today

In EVANGELION you had:

-super competent female SCIENTISTS AND ENGINEERS who were not treated as moral support or just cheerleaders they did actual fucking science

-they knew what the fuck they were doing and yes they had sex and had sexual desires but fuck, man, it was treated as a part of being HUMAN.

-the anime mom who DIES for character development, LMAO, swerve bitch, she’s the most iconic image of evangelion and she’s badass as hell

-ALSO? Her husband took her fucking name. Ikari is HER name

-weird alien who doesn’t seem to care about gender. falls in love with shinji. it’s reciprocated. fuck you, it was the NINETIES. God BLESS evangelion.

-Asuka Langley was a fucking teenage girl who acted like one. So was Shinji. These kids are traumatized and anxious as fuck cuz the entire world is relying on them. Y'all bash em both but fuck you, you would piss yourself in an Eva suit, get at me.

-did I mention Ritsuko is the head scientist and Misato is the director of the iconic Eva projects?

-Like seriously, no one talks about this, but Ritsuko is a mechanic, a computer programmer, and an extremely complex, interesting character with a unique view of life and relationship with her own parents.

-DID I MENTION YUI IKARI IS A KICKASS BIOMECHANICAL ALIEN MONSTER THAT IS THE SINGLE MOST ICONIC IMAGE OF EVANGELION

-AND THAT SHE KEPT HER MAIDEN NAME

why the fuck

Does anime fail so hard nowadays, Christ, what was going on in the nineties…
