I think sometimes you can learn a lot about a person from their clothing choices, and I’ve always sorta wanted to make some fashion sets ^ ^ So I’m making one for the OC kids, starting with the eldest as usual, Yasha! (He’s probably pre-teen-ish around here, maybe, idk)
Yasha still more or less thinks of himself as a boy (when he can be bothered to think about it at all) but loves flowers, pastels, and anything soft and gentle (in harsh contrast to his blunt as a bludgeon personality). And most importantly, he kinda just really hates wearing pants and underwear, when he can get away with full nudity… He takes the young!Victor flower fairy aesthetic to the next level. He can be very picky about what he wears, and usually prefers expensive but relatively unknown specialty brands. His parents, especially Victor, are more than happy to indulge his tastes.
IF YOU ARE NEW TO THIS AU: It’s a Yuri!!! on Ice AU, Yuuri-centric with end-game polyamory in an ABO
setting, Yuuri gets married to four mates (Victor, Yurio, Phichit, Minami)
and they have OC kids.
I'm really happy to see you enjoyed the episode. I kind of hated it myself. Or at least the Emma parts. Im disappointed in her writing, and I was wondering how you see it?
The way I see it is Emma has a long history with abandonment. Like an entire life’s worth of it. And the one person she’s finally certain would never abandon her suddenly ups and leaves? After she told him to basically go until he could be who she needed him to be? It’s her ugly history of ‘not being worthy for anyone’ rearing it’s ugly head… and what’s interesting is Gideon was ready for this. He literally used Emma’s biggest weakness against her (while exploiting Killian’s last episode).
You know how even the littlest, seemingly innocuous things can set off someone’s long history with trauma (and abandonment is a trauma - one I know all too well, honestly. A big portion of my own emotional problems stem from that)? The argument between Captain Swan might not has seemed like much, but we know it upset Emma and then Killian’s just gone afterwards? No indication of where he was going, with multiple people having seen him at the docks ready to leave? That’s gonna trigger Emma’s abandonment issues. That’s gonna bring her walls right up.
You wanna know what I think was a perfect indication that she was projecting all these feelings onto this one seemingly ‘minor’ fight they had? The instant she heard Killian’s voice, her walls came down. She didn’t doubt what he was saying. She trusted him right off the start that he hadn’t meant to leave and that he never would. Because she knows that. Only her lifetime of being left behind and not being good enough clouded that and made her react in a way that might have seemed unfair to Killian. Trauma and a long history of something causing you to feel lesser than good enough is insidious.
That’s how I look at Emma all this episode and why her reaction to the situation didn’t bother me… I hope my explanation helps a little? I’m sorry you were disappointed with how she was portrayed.
a short list of uncommon settings i want to run/play a tabletop rpg session in
sci-fi, but like, spoof. galaxy quest meets hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy meets the most camp monsters from 1970s doctor who. there are multiple star trek references
faction paradox-style intersection of black magic, post-apo, period drama and space opera. actually i’m already writing this one so
gravity falls. (that’s written too)
night vale. roll to seduce a scientist. eat wheat to transform into a powerful eldritch being and fight a deer. summon a puppy
noir/neo noir detective story. on a serious note or a parody.
something 100% surreal. what are genres. what are rules. i mean there are rules to combat/magic etc but the world looks like one of these cartoons in the intro credits to a monty python film and it goes borrowing from wildly unrelated franchises like frickin lego batman movie
survival horror with all the horror tropes. all of them
I don’t think a lot of people realise how careful you feel like you have to be or how scared you are of coming off as predatory when you’re queer and interacting with children who aren’t your own.
Like, my little sisters wanted me to paint their nails rainbow (because they’re five and six, so of course they did), and I had to talk them into holographic glitter because I was terrified that if I sent them to their grandmother’s with rainbow nails, I’d be “pushing my sexuality” on them and it would be used as evidence against me next time she tries to say I’m not a good role model.
And before you assume I’m just being paranoid, I’m already on thin ice for letting them watch Steven Universe and letting them wear rainbow tutus that they picked out on Halloween. So. Yeah. Fun stuff.
