i’ve just thought of the most random au like. okay. bts in community au. vmin as troy and abed and jeongguk as random annie who starts living with them and understands what a bunch of dipshit nerds they really are. namjoon’s gonna be britta with his social justice speeches and seokjin’s jeff because jesus if he ain’t loving himself more than the real jeff. hoseok gotta be shirley who actually takes care of everyone and yoongi holy god - the most perfect pierce! like random jokes, doing some weird shit, g r a n d p a and secretly adoring the group he’s in. i think i’m going crazy
mwhy do all y’all phrase shit like this. i’m not aphobic. i dont think there’s anything wrong with being ace, i do think there is too much emphasis on sexual relationships in media and society, and i do think that the feelings behind identifying as ace are, for lack of a better word, valid. but the ace community deliberately ignores and misinterprets LGBT history and thats where i draw the god damned line.
Y’ALL I JUST HAD THE BIGGEST REALIZATION OF MY LIFE
okay so you know how Jeremy Shada was talking about how he found out Lance was Cuban????? and how he found out by reading a line Lance has that says something along the lines of “I’m just a boy from Cuba”???
i just realized that that line actually sounds like he could be seriously devaluing himself with those words. what if Jeremy accidentally gave us a look into a future emotional moment for Lance and his insecurities???
think about it. he could be talking to one or more team members in this line! what if he’s comparing himself to everyone else on the team, pointing out how they all are so talented and useful to the team and is like “you all have something that makes you useful and important, and i’m just a boy from Cuba…”
thinking about it, this week’s episode did a lot to dispel any remaining fear i had about a power imbalance or ulterior motives in victor and yuuri’s relationship, and it’s basically because of one line.
because remember, we’ve only very recently started to hear victor’s internal dialogue, and it told us crucially here that this is exactly what victor was doing. not because of any malicious intent, sure; he was genuinely trying to help yuuri, and based on his own experiences, an extreme ultimatum like the one he presented to yuuri was the best that he could come up with. nonetheless, it was designed to manipulate yuuri in a way, to motivate him, to snap him out of his stress.
and the thing is, even in a very well done story, that’s what we might reasonably have expected to happen: yuuri, filled with a new drive not to lose victor, someone he admires immensely, as his coach/friend/partner, delivers a stunning performance and all is resolved. that’s just how the trope seems to go.
instead, yuuri immediately sees through what victor was doing, recognizes it as out of character for victor’s coaching style and how he treats yuuri in general, and calls him the fuck out on it, because yeah, that’s unhealthy, it’s not okay, and yuuri knows it, knows that he’s in and deserves a relationship with mutual honesty and respect.
regardless of his anxiety, his insecurities, this is not a relationship where yuuri is on thin ice, and it’s lovely to see.
hi! i’m shout. im a freelance pixel artist. ive been around for like 4 years now helping people make video games and sometimes things that arent video games. anyway, i specialize in stupid anime bullshit
i’m opening commissions to tumblr again for pixel art, for gamedev and otherwise, which really just means that i’ll do like standalone avatar portraits and vanity shots if you pay me, too
(it went well the first time, so the second round should be even better, right?)
my rates start at 10usd / 32x32 sprite + 5usd / additional animation frame / tile + 20usd / character design,but for large projects like video games ive been known to put out discounts and for very complicated characters (like, for instance, if you want me to draw and animate a 64x64 tetsuya nomura character) (’ses zippers) i tend to markup. i also markup slightly for sprites with a larger base resolution then 32x32, but can do pretty much any scale from like 8x8 to like 96x96 (and really at that point it’s not even pixel art anymore, just really fuckin small raster art)
(if you want, i can usually provide sketches of any characters you have me design, as well)
i’m also an experienced game maker dev (going on like, 6 years at least) so inquire within about other gamedev work, in case you want my expertise (not just my art) (please do both, though) on a game you’re working on
if you have questions, dont be afraid to just speak up, by the way! like, i dont bite. i mostly just talk about cel animated anime and say the word ‘xabungle’ over and over like im trying to summon it in a mirror
you can also reach me at shout#6597 on discord, and email@example.com if you genuinely enjoy writing and sending emails or somethin
