Why COULDN’T I? Why could I not choose to make a male fanchild of the Redfoxes to be a son full with a broken past and personality but is on his way to redeeming himself? How could I now create a flawed Ga-jevy son who is going to also love piercings as well as art and learns from Gajeel’s rebellious criminal days to walk in the path of the light again? What is so wrong about Gale being a BOY? Because boys can’t do what girls do?
“I mean, if Gale was a girl … how could you make her a boy?”
Gale is NOT the MALE version of your Ga-jevy daughter fanchild. He was made a boy and I see ZERO problems with that.
“that’s just wrong to me.”
Need I seek your approval for my own characters?
“the redfoxes deserve a girl!!”
Yes, they do. I was secretly planning on adding a little daughter to the Redfox family as a surprise but this RUINED my excitement. You might think that I may be overreacting here but I’ve been dealing with a lot of shit with my new gens people like you send me. They are not your characters. They were made and groomed by myself and many wonderful friends who dropped in their little headcanons of the newgen children which I incorporate as a tribute to my creative followers.
If you had phrased your mail in a different way, let’s say, “HEY LOOK AT ALL MY CUTE GAJEVY DAUGHTER HEADCANONS” would it not have been so much better? Please re-read this very mail that you sent me and reflect on yourself.
My newgen ships have been criticized, especially Nash x Reiki just because they’re gay. I’ve seen my newgen arts posted EVERYWHERE and some reposters actually had the audacity to RENAME my characters and roleplay them out of character with NO MENTION OF CREDIT at all. They stole my ideas and garner lots of followers with that theft.
I’ve seriously been trying to be nice and tolerant about this issue but this is the last straw.
DO NOT dictate what an artist should and should not do to her own FCs. If you tried investing so much into your own characters to share with people and end up with shit like this, you’d understand how I feel. Everyone has their own opinions and preferences when it comes to fanchildren of their ships. You can share your ideas, keep them to yourself or create this fanchildren. But you can’t go around beating down other artists’/writers’ ideas of their own fanchildren.
Show some respect. And now, may we have a little word from Gale:
they're canon but theyre hella not because boy is a 400-year old guy whose bro is immortal and dad is a dragon while girl has dead parents and a dead future maybe let's just hope she holds out until they become canon in the END
stripper boy stops rain woman's rain and she becomes his fangirl. they live together for six months and taught each other how to strip and be fuckin adorable until he leaves assholishly and had like five affairs with his awful hipster cosplay complete with a transparent smartphone
awkward outlaw guy tried to kill samurai girl in the past, but both gets over it. guy and girl meet again and trips over a rock and kinda kisses until awkward outlaw guy decided to be an asshole and tell samurai girl he has a fiancee
they joined the council wherein guy arrests everyone for existing and girl tries to stalk a loser squad without realizing that shes being the worst cosplayer ever
tsundere + yandere couple # 2 but girl prefers wiping dirt over stalking and boy is pretty much terrified of himself after becoming an ichiya
a pair of drunkards, 1/2 of whom is a bitch queen of sass don't fuckin steal her panties or dadda will kill ya
big man plus sass bitch don't hella mess with us unless you're elfmans sister haha omg mira no we arent together haha... hahaha believe us
tsun half cat with psychic powers slowly liking a blue weirdo kitty lolz
ahhHHhH honey bunnys laxus can i wash ur back affectionately
I-it's not like I like you or anything! B-baka!
Finally watched Emerald City and here are some incoherent thoughts on that
So many feels in this episode.
First of all: Lucas openly upset/mildly annoyed at Dorothy for not being more concerned about her safety because he’s literally caring for the both of them was too much.
And then that whole scene with the little girl. Who are you child??? I, too, would hug a handsome stranger upon sight, but who are you????
Also Lucas’s face was too good when Dorothy asked him to take off his clothes. Dude was probably like “I’d love to, but maybe not now???”
And don’t even get me started on the whole music.
Lucas’s reaction to music was too pure and sweet for this world. And the major heart eyes dorothy was giving him was too much (she is literally such a cinnamon roll)
And that kiss!!!! I love that this show didn’t go for the whole slow burn thing. They just went straight for it. And it was so sweet and simple. But so powerful especially with that song and then sharing ear buds. And Lucas openly saying that the moment they were sharing right then was more important to him than finding out about his past. Like his literal words just made me melt. I mean “the man I am right now is the man I want to be.” Like cmon.
And then all the snuggles were happening and they just looked so warm and together under his coat.
Well I finally finished book 1, and man do I feel bad for Katniss. I also think the line she gives about not having the Games to “hide behind” regarding her behavior with Peeta is interesting, because it implies that there is, in fact, truth to her feelings for him, and she feels guilty because she’s becoming increasingly more aware of the fact that Gale has feelings for her. (I think she’s known from the beginning of the book, tbh, but she was in denial because it was something she didn’t want to deal with.) This is reinforced when she tells us in Catching Fire that she no longer has to feel bad for hugging and seeking comfort in Peeta because she, again, can hide behind the idea that it’s for the Games, and not feel guilty. Both imply that she knows being honest in her feelings for Peeta will hurt Gale, and not so much that she has feelings for both of them. Both scenes also take place on the train, which I know there’s more to analyze regarding this, but I am dead exhausted and need a drink and to get my mind off of things with SNL. Please feel free to tell me what you think it means, though!
