this is a thing that’s happening now right

i just saw this post and was…….. so shocked by the blatant homophobia and misunderstanding of what happened in the movement that i just had to stare. the idea that the lgbt community during the aids crisis was just fucking and couldn’t think or stop is the most untrue and homophobic and serophobic and ronald reagan thing i’ve ever heard

if we could not blame the aids crisis on gay people that would be Awesome.

i get being critical and pointing out things that need to be pointed out

but so many ppl in the shadowhunters fandom are out there just being hateful and negative…all the time…about everything. and i wonder why..if you hate a show so much and everything about it (from 90% of the characters, to the ships, to the music, to the writing, to the acting) then why are you so deeply involved with it? i get it, you like a certain ship, you like a certain character and you’re watching for them. cool !!!! but then why come on here and constantly shit on literally every other aspect.

like, there are ppl on here that genuinely love the show and can watch it and critique it without all the bullying and superior attitudes and that’s gr8 !!

but some ppl need to take like 50 steps back. and maybe breathe a lil

I was reading @foxx-queen​‘s amazing General Danvers AU fanfic “stardust”, in which everyone has daemons, and I got really attached to the idea, and then I just had to draw a scene she told me about them snuggling in their sleep and their daemons doing the same.

Hey! I'm currently 14 and I'm practicing on some animation for a year! I always dream of joining a animation studio! But I feel they might reject me or I'll never achieve my dream! Do I need to go to college? Do I seriously need a degree? Do I need some supplies to pay? Is it easy to join?! Sorry, I've been stressing out about this earlier! Can you give me some advice on how can i work in a animation studio? Thank you!

This is a lot of questions!  First of all, I need to ask you to calm down.

Stress can be a powerful motivator, but too much stressing and you start going backwards!  Remember, hon: you’re fourteen.  You do have time!

The decision to go to college is a big one, and believe it or not, it IS optional.  Think about it this way: if you were an employer for an animation firm, what would you be looking for in an employee?  Would you care about grades and degrees?  Or would you care more about the potential employee’s portfolio and ability to do the work you require of them?

The fact of the matter is, while school is absolutely important and you should do your best to learn as much as possible from it, you also need to bear in mind that not everything is gonna depend on your report cards and framed degrees in the future.  I myself went to university and got my BFA in animation there, but that was more because I personally believed I would significantly benefit from the education I might receive there.  But college isn’t for everybody, and for some, it can be a huge financial burden.  If you have the drive to teach yourself and do your own work without being prompted, and you think you have the stuff it takes to learn what you need to know on your own, then college might not even be necessary for you.

Basically: it helps.  But it’s not a requirement, per se.

As for the animation industry itself, I’m not gonna sugarcoat it: it is EXTREMELY difficult to get your foot in the door.  This industry is massively competitive, so would-be animators need to keep pace.  It’s not just about who you know, or about your skill, or even about luck: it’s a scary combination of all three.  The most important thing to understand is that it usually takes time, and you’re gonna fail many times over before you succeed.

I had the extreme fortune of attending CTNX right when a studio was hiring, which was ALSO right when I was graduating, and the studio ALSO happened to be looking for somebody who could do exactly what I could do.  Of course, I wouldn’t have been at this event had I not put forth the effort to prove to my family (who gifted me the tickets) that I was capable of taking full advantage of an opportunity if it was presented to me, and that I had the stuff to make it if I just had a break.

I actually interviewed for two studios at CTNX, but was offered a job only by the one.  In other words: I was rejected by the other.  The rejection was mitigated by the fact that I was accepted at the same time, of course, however that was more a stroke of good timing and luck than a given.  Had I not gotten this acceptance, I’d have had to go home and resolve myself to try again and not give up just because I failed the first time.

With regards to your supplies, I can’t tell you everything you’re going to need specifically.  You’ll need a method of animation, of course, that you can use freely – mine is Clip Studio Paint EX, to draw in, combined with Adobe Premiere CS6, to assemble my animations.  There are plenty of other programs that’ll do both at once, but which one works for you is going to depend on you alone.  You’ll also need to understand that, in the studio, you’re not guaranteed to be using the same software as you use at home.  For that reason, you need to be flexible, and you need to resolve to be a quick learner.  Some employers will train you right on the job.  Others will throw you to the sharks, and you gotta quickly learn to catch up on your own.  But learning curve on the job is only with regards to the program – if you don’t know the basics and how to make a good product even on your own software, they won’t teach you that.

The biggest thing is that you’ll need to do your own research!  Asking for advice is an excellent start, but like I said, I can’t tell you everything you’re gonna need – some of that, you’ll need to figure out on your own.  And I know that’s scary, but don’t worry – you’ve got plenty of time.

As some parting comments, I recommend you pick up a book titled “The Animator’s Survival Kit,” written by master animator Richard Williams.  I also HEAVILY suggest you take some life-drawing courses, whether they’re with a school or just somewhere in your area.  Trust me: you can NEVER know enough about how to draw what’s around you.  And while learning to draw “realistic” things might seem counter-intuitive for animation, which usually calls for a much more simplified drawing style for efficiency’s sake, you gotta know the basic rules before you can bend them and change them and simplify them.  Study your favorite animated movies, and even the ones you don’t much care for.  Pay attention to HOW things move, and why certain motions work so well in the contexts they’re given.  Pay EXTRA attention to when something doesn’t seem to work, and try to figure out why that may be.  If you can, find somebody to explain these things to – teaching others is the fastest way to teach yourself.  (You could even use a stuffed animal or a pet as your audience – sometimes, it’s all about listening to yourself explain it.)

This may be a weird question but do you think someone white would be taken more seriously when writing different races and ethnicities if they kept their identity anonymous? I've been writing a book for that is full of different races and ethnic groups. I gave it to an editor & the first thing he said was "way to really reach the diversity quota here, you'll get more readers with this." This hurt. I truly love my characters. I don't want them seen as just a ploy or a bating tactic.

White Privilege, Publishing, and Diversity Quotas

As in most cases, white privilege works in the white author’s favor. More likely to be published in the first place (with or without a diverse cast), more likely to be praised for being inclusive, as seen here, basically the things Writers of Color are accused of and struggle with happen less, if at all, to white authors.

Your editor seeing you as reaching a diversity quota is their flaw, not necessarily that of your writing. Thinking of diversity in terms of quotas is going about it wrong, in my opinion. It’s interesting that your editor does recognize that diversity sells and is seeing the dollar signs, thus “you’ll get more readers for this” but hey. 

Do not write in a way that is a ploy or a bating tactic and you will be fine. 

That is, don’t do any of the following:

  • Write PoC in solely to get more readers, money, pats on the back etc.
  • Under develop your Characters of Color and/or lazily rely on stereotypes
  • Consciously include “just enough PoC” to fit a mental or real diversity quota
  • Feature them at the beginning only to sideline, underplay, or kill them off later.

However, do do the following:

  • Write PoC because being inclusive is important, you want to represent the real world, give people reflections, etc
  • Fully develop your Characters of Color, be mindful of stereotypes and learn how to subvert and avoid them
  • Not concern yourself with quotas but instead just keep in mind your goals for an inclusive cast if it’s not something you do naturally (yet). No magical number required.
  • Allow Characters of Color to live to see happiness. In a world where the “Black person dies first”, it’s rule-breaking to see PoC live sometimes.

There’s always going to be people who see inclusive writing as an attempt to reach a quota, whether that’s viewed negatively or positively. There is no quota! And no need to have to defend your choices as if white people are the only ones who should exist in stories unless it’s some book about a certain group or “the struggle.” As if a cast of all white people is ever scrutinized so closely.

Forget that noise and just write.

Ok but why didn’t they just retool Sarah Jacobs as a newsie as well? Like if they wanted the female character (because apparently we’re only allowed one) to have a bigger and more important role then they should of had her out there selling with her brothers. Maybe a little bit of a struggle against her parents because she wants to help but they won’t let her (because it’s not “proper” and would be even more embarrassing for their family maybe?) and so she sneaks out to help her brothers make more money. Maybe have her upset that they’ll let her little brother work but they won’t let her?
