lotor’s design is so frustrating to me not only because hes so bland but also because of his fucking BANG LIKE…………………….. JUST ONE BANG………………………….. WHY WOULD ANYONE THINK GIVING HIM ONE ERECT LITTLE STRAND OF HAIR COMING FROM HIS FOREHEAD WAS A GOOD IDEA……………………………..
please don’t romanticize drug use, until you’ve stayed up for entire days because you took too many pills. please dont romanticize drug use, until you’ve stolen from people you love. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve had to look your parents dead in the eyes, tell them you use, and watch them cry. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve forgotten what its like to be sober. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve picked drugs over a relationship. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve gone through the hell of withdrawal. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve had to tell your brother and sister not to use, because you dont want them to end up like you.
please dont romanticize drug use until the circles under your eyes are darker than your eyeliner. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve spent your christmas and birthday money on pills to numb the pain. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve only felt beautiful when you were high as a kite. please dont romanticize drug use until you know what its like to constantly chase a high. please dont romanticize drug use until you know everything about medicine and you arent even a pharmacist. please dont romanticize drug use until you have felt the come down. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve layed on the floor asking god for a little bit more time. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve laid down in bed to sleep and asked yourself if you were going to wake up in the morning. please dont romanticize drug use until youve had to call your childhood friend and begged them to take you to the hospital because you overdosed. please dont romanticize drug use until you let it take over your life. please dont romanticize drug use until you’ve lived through the dirty shit. its not fair for the addicts who are dirty, dead, and dying while you talk about how “fun” and “recreational” drug use is. its not glamorous. its not a fun hobby. its not a phase. its not a sport. its not sparkly. its not rewarding. it doesnt make you cool. its not grunge or hipster. it breaks hearts. it destroys familys. it ruins people. it steals your money, memory, health, wealth, potential, stamina, intelligence, and life. unless you’re ready to make the life long commitment, for better and for worst, through withdrawal and through highs, till death do you part, please dont romanticize drug use.
im sorry im really salty right now but i have to go on a gd rant bc im????
this fandom is so violently against thinking outside the lovesquare it’s crazy. go through every ship you can think of, count the amount of content in the tags for each, and then come back to me if you don’t believe me
like first off let’s start with the f/f ships
by far the most popular two are julerose and chlolya, a.k.a. ships that don’t include mari and don’t mess with the lovesquare
and before you pull the whole “oh but their dynamic is better”
chlonette and chlolya are both rivals to lovers ships in their simplest form. so why is chlolya more popular?
alyanette and julerose are both friends to lovers ships in their simplest form. so why is julerose more popular?
it takes clawing through alyanette, chlonette, lilanette, etc. tags to find content, meanwhile chlolya and julerose are everywhere bc they’re “safe ships”
this one’s even funnier bc mlm ships in this fandom are practically nonexistent
the most “popular” ones are adrinino and adrinath, but guess why you barely see content for them?
the only reason they’re more popular than kim/max is bc they either involve the main characters, or they involve nath (the only background character that people seem to give a shit about for reasons unknown????)
oh and it gets better bc let’s talk about het ships that don’t get any love
i’ve seen marinath used so damn often as a means to an end for lovesquare shippers. like if i had a dollar for every time i saw marinath used as a way for adrien to be jealous/confess his feelings, i could buy a fucking condo
nino x marinette? alya x adrien? no?
yeah. figured. kinda makes the lovesquare impossible, right?
the best part about this is that when you check which pairings get useless comments tagged on about ‘oh are you guys serious?’ ‘yeah but they’re just friends?’ ‘this pairing would never work’ and ‘x person loves y so they can’t possibly like z,’ do you know which ones you’ll see more often than not?
pairings that include adrien or marinette
im tired of seeing people be dismissive of alyanette, adrinino, and ninette. i’m tired of having to literally claw through the tags for chlonette or lilanette. im tired of seeing artists and writers get tens of thousands of notes on their lovesquare art and struggle to get 200 notes on art with pairings that disrupt the lovesquare.
it’s disheartening. it’s annoying. it’s isolating. and it feels like a lot of people don’t even care so i guess im done
Guess who got a tablet for christmas? *waggles eyebrows* I still have a long way to go before I can be considered proficient at using it, but I’ll get there. I’m looking forward to making the most of the ‘dead’ time during my commutes to and from the office!
