gonna lose a lot of followers for this

Sketch Requests!

Hey guys!!!! since i’ve reached the 200 follower mark, i’m gonna do a buncha requests!

the’re just gonna be sketches, so i can get lots and lots of them done, and so i don’t lose inspiration in the middle of a drawing (–u–;;)

they’ll look something like this:

i’ll try and clean them up a bit more than that, but yeah!!

you can request anything you want, as long as it’s not NSFW, ships (unless you know for certain i ship it), or drug/tobacco use! (i’ll draw Undertale, dragons, my OCs, MP100, TAZ, pretty much anything from any fandom i’ve drawn already,,,,,,)

if you request your OC, send me a message with a ref of what your OC looks like

also! you don’t have to be following me to request stuff!

i will take requests up to the 28th (next wednesday), so you don’t have to send any in immediately.

(send in the requests through the askbox, please don’t submit anything. message me if you have a ref for your OC you want me to see)

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”
  • m/m 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

Sirius Black and Remus Lupin's first times

Here is a (mainly) fluff Wolfstar I wrote those last days ! Hope you’ll like it >w<

If you prefer to read it on AO3, here is the link


When they first meet, it’s at the train station. Sirius is with Walburga and Regulus, half listening his mother’s “advices”, which sound more like orders and threats. Looking at the crowd, his eyes catch a pair of scared but happy green eyes. It’s a boy his age, with apparently his parents and little luggage.

He later get to know his name : Remus Lupin. He doesn’t know yet this name will become his world.


When they first get detention, it’s together, less than a month after the first day of class. Sirius pull a prank on a group of Slytherin boys who are always mocking him for being a lion, but the teacher punishes Sirius and Remus since they are together.

During the detention, Remus tries not to pay attention to Sirius – it’s his fault they got here after all ! He doesn’t last more than twenty minutes though.

Weekly Voltron Fic Recs #29

That’s almost a hundred.

Rules: You can find past weekly rec lists here, and non-list recs in my general fic rec tag. This is stuff I like, and I have a huge bias toward Lance, hurt/comfort, and general fluff, in that order. Gen unless otherwise noted. Please comment on the fics if you read and enjoy them!

The Times They Remembered Pidge Was a Girl by MagmaWrites
Words:  1,639 (WIP 1/?)
Author’s Summary:  The stuff you have to deal with while being a girl doesn’t change just because you’re up in space. At least you have four guys, five lions, and two aliens on your side.
My Comments: Super cute space family being super cute.

Reach out for you (break these walls) by Utsukushin (UserFromPluto)
Words: 9,139
Author’s Summary: Keith is trying to make himself smaller, to bury his head deeper in his knees, and Lance’s heart freezes in his chest. Anger dissipating like an exploded firework, Lance lets his hand fall limply to his side, mind blurring with static. When he tries to speak, nothing comes out but a choked noise, so he tries again.“Keith,” he breathes. “Keith I’m not going to hurt you.” (Keith has an abusive past, but with time and care Lance helps him become accustomed to positive touch.)
My Comments: Klance, but reads mostly platonic. Lance just cares a whole, whole lot, and he’s very gentle and very careful and sweet, and the way Keith just sort of BLOSSOMS under the sunlight of his regard is beautiful to watch.

Garrison Days by castlestormed
Words: 4,093
Author’s Summary: Snippets of the kids’ Galaxy Garrison days: Hunk keeps things together, Pidge plods on with a purpose, and Lance tears through life with the audacity of a trainwreck. Fic 1: We were only talking. (Lance) Fic 2: Are you done ranting? (Pidge) Fic 3: We had a reason that day. (Hunk)
My Comments: Great interpretation of my favorite trio. Just a joy to read.

The Machinations of Perception by HapaxLegomenon
Words: 11,518 (WIP 5/23)
Author’s Summary: Matt Holt has been a Galran captive for… he doesn’t remember how long. He’s starting to lose hope of ever escaping, and is well past the starting point of losing his sanity.
My Comments: This one is intense and brutal. The rating is deserved, though it’s delicately handled. Take care if you have psychological triggers. That said, I’m very compelled by this version of Matt and his struggles to hold himself together so he can TRY to take care of his new cellmate.

Tell Me Something, Anything by wingedflower
Words: 1,875
Author’s Summary: Shiro wakes up from a nightmare with his Galra arm hurting like hell. He is ready to handle this alone, like always, but this time comfort comes from an unexpected source.
My Comments: I love it when Lance is out of his depth but still tries really, really hard, because he just cares so much and he can’t not try. He does succeed in helping in the end, and Shiro is grateful.

Ache by Zurela
Words: 3,790
Author’s Summary: Lance’s knee gets dislocated during a fight with a new robeast. He decides to ignore that for the sake of protecting his teammates, but Shiro doesn’t seem to agree with that idea.

A Bright Light by Bandity
Words: 9,412
Author’s Summary: Lance gets injured on a mission gone wrong, but that was really only the beginning of his problems.
My Comments: Possibly my new favorite fic of all time, definitely my favorite of this list. Lance just deteriorates so FAST, and the scenario is so creative and cool, and the support of everyone else as they try to figure out the problem and fix it and help Lance through it is wonderfully steady and strong. Great Hunk, great Shiro, great everyone, and there are several images in this story that are gonna stick with me for a long time. Powerful stuff.

Everything You Are by Bandity
Words: 5,508 (WIP ½)
Author’s Summary: Follow up to Disappear Completely. Spoilers for Season 2. Lance was getting better, he really was. But when faced with losing another team member, he might just end up back where he was before.
My Comments: Sequel to my PREVIOUS favorite fic of the list, and this one is so good, too. I loved the levity in parts and the way Lance at the end draws Keith into his world. But in the middle is a whole lot of pain and grief from missing Shiro. Absolutely heartwrenching.

let my roots take flight by BathosBardess
Words: 3,362
Author’s Summary: “Katie, you’re fourteen.” “Pidge Gunderson is seventeen. He has no family. He graduated with a 3.8 GPA. I’ll be fine, Mom.” // Katie Holt never meant to be a problem child.
My Comments: Great Pidge backstory with some really powerful language and touching scenes.

For The Love of Quiznak, Just Let Us Take Care of You by inkbadger
Words: 2,876
Author’s Summary: Shiro gets sick. Of course, he doesn’t realize that he’s sick until it hits him like a truck.Or: Space Dad gets taken care of by his worried kids.Who sometimes want to throttle him for not sharing these things.
My Comments: Super cute space family being super cute, this time featuring sick Shiro.

Author’s Summary: Each of them are like stars in the vast, cold, darkness of space. But when they come together, they form a constellation, and suddenly the world doesn’t seem quite so dark anymore.
My Comments: Paladin cuddle pile! Always good.

Disturbance by buttered_onions
Words: 18,915
Author’s Summary: Shiro is missing. Lance is determined to find him, but first he has to figure out how to work with Keith.Direct sequel to First Steps.
My Comments: HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS MORE OF ONIONS’S STAR WARS FUSION. It’s so so so so so good, ahhh, SO GOOD. I love the way the Force is practically a character, communicating with and connecting the others. I love how Pidge is introduced. I love Hunk and Coran. I love Lance’s perspective and how he tries to mend fences with prickly, hurting Keith. I love all the premonitions of much more dangerous and weighty events in the future. I love the internal journeys, GOLLY, I love internal mindscape journeys so much, used to write them al the time. ANYWAY, it is a good fic, you should read it, and everything else in the series so far.

Why do You Always Flirt with Me? by xSomedayxSoonx
Words: 5,279
Author’s Summary: The Voltron team is learning how to get along with each other in the Castle of Lions, but Allura can’t figure out why a certain paladin won’t stop flirting with her. She doesn’t mean to snap at him, but Lance stopping his flirtatious behavior affects the whole team.

Words: 2,809

& Knuckles

I woke up, as I’d expected, to the sound of giggling.

As I stirred, a voice on my left whispered “Good morning, Master…”
One on my right whispered “Happy birthday, Master…”

Looks like everything had worked, then.

It was one of my wife and I’s longest-running traditions. I’d known she was a witch when we got married, of course. I always wanted her to use her magic for things that were a bit more… well, fun. She was fussy about it - refused to use it for self-gain, or anything “immoral”. 

(She had a pretty broad definition of immoral, it turned out.)

According to her, using magic that way was corruptive. It wore you down, over time. Stained your soul or some such stuff. She never liked when I compared it to the light and dark sides of the force, but hey - seemed fitting to me.

In any case, once a year, we had a little bit of fun. For my birthday, she cast a spell that, well, broke her in half. For a day, instead of one smart, powerful, domineering wife, I had two dim, eager, gullible and excitable little girlfriends. 

One of whom already had her tongue on my balls, by this point. They certainly didn’t waste time.

I didn’t know how the magic worked. Every year, I went to sleep, and woke up with both of them in my bed. Every year, I passed out (ideally having gotten off so many times that my balls felt like they were going to wither away), and woke up with my wife again. I think she liked the mystery of it.

But I was curious, so I did research.

One of the girls had her tits in my face. It was distracting in the most pleasant way possible. I let myself be distracted for a bit. I had time. Today was a big day, but there was very little rush.

It took a few years, honestly. I could sneak peeks at my wife’s spellbooks as much as I wanted - what was really required was practical testing and observation. And I only got that once a year. I had figured out some of the basic principles, and I was pretty sure I knew how to make some… adjustments.

I wriggled out from under the two horny little minxes, shushing their complaints. I hopped out of bed, grabbing the backpack I’d hidden in the back of the closet, behind my old gaming systems and camping supplies and all the other things my wife didn’t bother touching. I dumped out the contents on the bed. The girls looked at me, baffled.

I handed each of them a sheet of paper, previously prepared. I set to work - sprinkling herbs, lighting candles, drawing figures with chalk.

“You know how sad you girls are every year, when you have to go back to being smart?” I said. I had no idea if that was true - did they know what their true nature was? Did they prefer this, or being united in their smarter, more competent incarnation? Hell, were they even the same girls every time, or were they created new each year? That was more existential of a question than I was ready to approach.

To their credit, the girls both nodded, eyes wide. 

“Well, good news,” I said. “You’re never going back.”

They smiled. They didn’t look like they comprehended, but they certainly smiled.

“You’re going to stay just like this forever,” I told them. “All you have to do is read the words on those pages. Okay? Ready… now.”

I lit the last two candles as they started speaking. I was a bit too nervous and excited to fully appreciate the humor, but those two ditzes fumbling through a Latin incantation was pretty adorable.

They made it through, though, eventually. And… nothing happened.

No flash of light. No thunder. No whoosh of air pulling through the room, extinguishing all the candles. 
No obvious rotting away of my soul, either, so that was a plus.

The girls stared at me, unsure what to do next. I grinned. Either it worked or it didn’t, right? Wait and see. My wife was always coy about how much she remembered of these special days once they were over. I was pretty sure she didn’t remember anything. 

If my spell didn’t work, and she did remember? Well, I’d have some explaining to do, of course.

But for the time being, I enjoyed myself. I led my girls through a full-day romp. They were all too happy to indulge my every whim - and, since I’d been looking forward to this since exactly one year ago, I had a lot of whims ready to go.

Eventually, we collapsed into bed, sweaty and sore and tired, piled atop each other. I sank into blissful sleep.

I woke the next morning, feeling a warm body stirring next to mine.

“Good morning, Master,” someone whispered in my ear.
“Did you sleep well, Master?” someone else whispered in my other ear.

I smiled.

Another by-request story, brought to you by this donation program that loses me a follower or two every time I post about it. If you think that means I’m gonna stop posting about it, though, you’re living in a sad fantasy world.

Why do I always need some big plan? Lose weight, stop lifting, lift and eat a little bit, lift big and eat a lot; why can’t I just LIVE and have eating be a secondary part of my existence. Everything is thought of and given second thoughts and I’m so tired of not knowing what “plan” I’m gonna follow

How to prepare for a diet

How many of you have thought that tomorrow you’re starting your diet? Well that’s great but do not do huge drastic changes right away. Here’s some of my tips on how you can prepare before you start going on a very strict diet like korean diets.

  • Have a few weeks eating healthier: Do not watch your portions, just make sure you eat healthy. Feast on vegetables and fruits, not doritos and burgers. Use healthier alternatives to anything you usually eat. Go for whole grain, whole meat, vegetables, fruits, beans etc. These 2-3 weeks(depending on when you’re feeling ready) just eat until you’re not hungry, but eat healthy. It’s not that hard as you think.
  • Don’t count calories: This is a stupid thing, imo. Eat what you think is healthy, this way you’ll learn.
  • Get moving: Don’t do 30 minutes on the treadmill the first day. Walk your dog a little further, take a longer way to the grocery store, take the stairs, bike to work or school, go for an evening walk. There’s no need for crazy changes. You don’t need high quality sports equipment, no gym subscription. Just you and your feet.
  • Write down a log: How has this day been? What did you find out? Did you achieve a new goal? Just write down anything related to your healthier lifestyle. Write down if you had 4 pizza slices instead of 1 because it was soooo good. Just write it all down. It works.
  • Tell someone what you’re gonna achieve: Your classmates or colleagues need to know you’re gonna lose 10kg. Or your best friend, or your mom, or anyone really. Your tumblr followers, whatever. Telling someone about your goals makes you more likely to achieve them. 

So, am I ready to diet now?

Can you go a week eating healthy? Can you restrict your calorie intake a lot? Are you ready to work out and work hard? Ready to cry? Ready to feel the hunger at times? Ready to say nothanks to chocolate, cake and pizza? Go ahead, your diet journey is beginning now. A new you, a new life.

anonymous asked:

Ty, could you rec me some movies and/or tv shows you like? :)

YEAH i’m totally down!! I don’t really watch TV though, so this will be a movie rec list! (Also I haven’t watched a lot of movies recently, so a majority of these are from my teenage years)

Movies:

  • The Fountain (2006): a layered story that interlocks three different timelines/worlds. One takes place during the 16th century where a conquistador is trying to find the Tree of Life in central America, hoping to save Queen Isabella, the second takes place in the 2000s, about a doctor coming to terms with the impending death of his wife, and the third is in the far future, where a lone man is traveling through space with a magic tree. All three timelines star the same two actors, Hugh Jackman and Rachel Weisz, and the significance of that can be interpreted in multiple ways. The movie doesn’t have a solid Hollywood story, so the ending may feel rather unhappy, but the visual themes, music, and acting are amazing. It may seem like a typical “middle age white man pain” story on the outside, but it’s executed well and I personally really enjoy it.
  • The Hours (2002): based on a novel of the same name, this movie is another triple-layered story. This story revolves around Virginia Wolfe and her novel Mrs. Dalloway: one timeline follows Wolfe trying to write the novel, the second timeline follows a 50s housewife reading the novel, and the third is a 2000s re-telling of the novel. This movie could very likely be considered slow and is practically made up of all soliloquies, but again, superb acting and an overall very emotional journey. There are quite a lot of gay subthemes, with the modern Mrs. Dalloway character (played by Meryl Streep) in a long-standing and committed relationship with another woman, and there are one-sided feelings in the 50s housewife story (the housewife is played by Juliane Moore). There is a weird, potentially incestuous, kiss between Virginia Wolfe (played by Nicole Kidman) and her sister(?), so warnings for that and also lots of talk of suicide (as per accurate of Wolfe). It’s also unfortunately another all-white cast.
  • The Tale of Two Sisters (2003): a Korean horror movie about two sisters who return home after an extended stay in a mental institution. Their home suffers under a subtly oppressive and supernatural energy, and there are a lot of mysteries creeping about. Complicated relationships are slowly revealed between the sisters, their father, dead mother, and step mother. This story has a lot of twists, and in its center, I actually think it’s more of a tragedy rather than a true horror. I know the surface level of “psychologically troubled sisters in a horror movie” seems very cringe-worthy, but surprisingly the psychoses are treated as a separate entity from the supernatural elements (even if the lines are a bit ambiguous and blurry, there is still a line). The acting in this is amazing and makes much, much more sense when watched through a second time.
  • Doubt (2008): the screen adaptation of a stage play, Doubt is a very thematic story revolving around a Catholic boarding school and a molestation allegation. The lead nun (played by Meryl Streep) is suspicious of the main pastor (played by Philip Seymour) because of the close relationship he shares with the first Black child to be integrated to their school. The story is fairly simple, but the amount of psychological tension really drives the story, and the viewer’s prejudices are really put to the test. The actors deliver incredible performances, with an amazing, surprise role from Viola Davis as the child’s mother. The movie really leaves you questioning yourself by the end.
  • Unleashed (2005): my favorite American Jet Li film, and one of the few US movies that actually takes advantage of his incredible acting skills. This story is about a mentally disabled cage fighter, who is kept like a dog by his gang boss. Through circumstances, he gains his freedom and is saved by a blind pianist (played by Morgan Freeman), who teaches him how to live an ordinary life. Of course, his past comes to haunt him and there’s a lot of action scenes, but the core of the movie is very sweet. I also personally have a soft spot for Asian/Black co-leading actors, and movies that focus on positive relationships between the two groups (which Jet Li has also done in Romeo Must Die but the story in that one is kinda lacking). I think what’s incredible about this movie– as a childhood Jet Li fan– is seeing how his acting and personification of the character translates into the martial arts choreography. For someone who rose to stardom as “the elegant fighter,” Jet Li delivers amazing emotional impact as an unhinged and almost beast-like fighter.
  • Saving Face (2004): I realize most of my movies are heavy I’m so sorry, so here’s a light-hearted movie to balance things out lmao. Saving Face is a Chinese-American lgbt film, starring Michelle J. Krusiec as a lesbian surgeon. Out to her friends, but closeted to her mother and their general Chinese community, the main character falls into the responsibility of caring for her aging mother– who has mysteriously become pregnant. The mother-daughter duo must learn to live together, reconcile their relationship, and deal with losing face together in the light of their unconventional relationships. While the story is mainly focused on the parental relationship, the main character does have a relationship with another woman that receives significant screentime and development. A feel-good film that does have a lot of bilingual scenes, so watching with subtitles will be needed for non-Mandarin speakers.

Animated Movies:
(obviously I’ve seen more animated movies than the ones on this list but I don’t see people talk about these films often so I’m gonna rec them)

  • Wolf Children (2012): the story of a mother who’s left with raising her two, half-wolf children. The movie follows her meeting a werewolf, falling in love with him, losing him, and raising the kids from infancy to middle-school age. The animation house is the same group that produced The Girl Who Lept Through Time and Summer Wars, so the quality is top-notch. The story, while generally slice-of-life, obviously has some supernatural elements to it due to the kids being werewolves, but is still able to retain the evocative nature of a parental coming-of-age story. There are a lot of themes of love and loss, so it’s not a very feel-good film, but the ending leaves quite the impact on the viewer.
  • Tokyo Godfathers (2003): a dramedy movie from Satoshi Kon, this film follows the story of three homeless people: a teenage girl and two middle-aged adults, an alcoholic father and a former drag-queen (who now identifies as a trans woman). During the Christmas holiday, the three stumble on an abandoned baby, and more or less decide to find the parents. Their journey takes them across Tokyo, through unbelievable and hilarious circumstances, and also through each of their unresolved pasts and motivations. The animation in this movie is amazing, and the story is light but human enough to strike at your emotions. Hana-san, the trans woman, may come across initially as a caricature, but she is treated with respect and humanity just like the other two characters.

At least this will make Bucky and Katie happy. Not that she’s not happy, but it is still a blow to her ego in a way, and she just has to get over that before she can really be happy about what this now means for her and Bucky, and Katie as well.

my fave retail experiences pt 3

- we had these annoying foam prop things in the shape of wine glasses and stuff that we we’re meant to hang from the ceiling but our store isn’t allowed because of fire safety issues. instead we arranged them neatly on our christmas display stack of gift packs. i swear, every child that entered our store bee-lined for them, throwing them around, trying to pull them apart etc etc, and the majority of parents instead of telling their kids to STOP fucking around in a liquor store would turn to us and ask ‘can they take this home?’ like….no? what the fuck? and when we’d politely laugh and say ‘no sorry’ they would often ask 'why not?’ to which i’d have to explain that we can get in a LOT of trouble if we don’t have all our props and displays properly presented so no, you can’t have that!!!!

- woman came in with a 'buy one get one free’ coupon for a specific wine. 
woman: do i have to have this wine? can i choose a different wine?
me: if you want to use the coupon it has to be this wine
woman: i don’t like this wine
me: okay well, do you want me to help you find a different wine on a different special?
woman: no i want to use this coupon
me: so you’d like to get this wine then?
woman: can i just pick a different wine? why does it have to be this one specifically?
me: it…just…does

- working in liquor sales i have to follow ID policies, a big one being secondary supply (when someone over 18 buys alcohol for someone under 18). parents are such a pain in the fucking arse with this law. for instance, a woman came to the counter with her clearly under age teenage daughter who was carrying some vodka pre-mixes. i asked to see the daughters ID before the transaction could go ahead. “they’re not for her, they’re for me” rebutted the mother. i then explained that because the daughter was holding them i had every right to believe they were for her and i was allowed to deny service. more than that, i HAD to deny service. the mother got SO pissed off, telling me that even if they were for the daughter it didn’t matter since she was paying for them (wrong again). i stood my ground and they turned to leave. as they were exiting a woman entered the store with her toddler son. the angry woman yelled very loudy 'DON’T BRING YOUR KID IN HERE THEY WON’T FUCKING SERVE YOU’. GOD. it’s one thing to get mad at me, but to try and poison other customers against us is just funny. 
can i just add - if a person working in liquor/tobacco sales says something is against the law they’re probably fucking right. if you’re denied service, no matter how ridiculous it sounds at the time, be respectful and walk away. you can always look it up when you get home and if they were wrong, take it from there. screaming at them over the counter is NEVER going to help you, in fact we’re specifically told to place temporary bans on any customer who does so. for instance, if a young person comes into the store and doesn’t have their ID, you’re more than welcome to go home, fetch the ID and return to make the purchase. but if you’re a fuckwit to me and tell me i don’t know how to do my job, you’re gonna get a 24 hr ban. realise that if we do the wrong thing the consequences are a lot bigger than just getting yelled out. we can lose our job, cop HUGE fines for both ourselves and our store and in a lot of cases the store will temporarily lose its trading license. it’s not ok to abuse somebody who has refused you service. not everybody can handle the pressure and yeah, some people might crack and give in to you, but think for a second about the consequences on their end. the laws are easy to remember and even easier to follow. don’t be a fuckwit about it.

 fingers crossed for a nice stream and drama free weekend!

Okay y’all i might get heat for this buuuut i gotta say whats on my mind or I’m gonna die tbh. I’ll probably lose followers but I’m honestly annoyed.
Firstly, I’m as stoked as everyone else for Gay Heathers like that’s some Good Shit right there. And the essay that the girl playing female JD wrote about it is super well written and thorough and definitely a lot more gramatically correct than this bc I wrote this in literally 15 minutes lmao. But I also gotta say some things!! So this is basically a response “essay”, if you can even call it that lol.

Also, I wanna make clear that even though I like JD I am in NO WAY trying to defend/excuse his actions, I’m just trying to explain then. Alright.

The very first thing that got me was “JD is about as likeable as Trump in the 2016 election.” ….whoa there. That’s honestly one of the most ridiculous things I’ve ever heard?? It literally just compared a mentally ill abuse victim who killed a bully and two rapists to a racist, sexist, greedy, 10000 other awful things monster. That comparison honestly…I have no words for it.
JD IS likeable, and he’s supposed to be. That’s part of his character. He’s charismatic and smart and strong and sensitive etc, and even though that doesn’t make him a good person (but honestly his morality is a whole other discussion) it’s just true. He’s likeable. He’s sympathetic. He’s supposed to be. Also, “Hardly anyone roots for him”? Have you seen the fandom/audience? I can guarantee you there are tons of people who root for him.
“Whiny, petulant, narcissistic.” Calling a mentally ill trauma victim “whiny” seriously rubs me the wrong way. Plus, making him a girl doesn’t change his personality. If you think he’s whiny as a boy, you can’t say he isn’t whiny as a girl.
And again, what do you mean when you say he doesn’t get trust from the protagonist? Veronica trusts him completely at first. That’s what led her to go along with his terrible plans.
You say the audience is confused as to why he does what he does, and I really don’t mean to be offensive, but if you actually wonder why he is the way he is, you probably haven’t paid much attention to him. At what is likely a very young age, saw his mother die violently. He had a neglectful father, and no sense of love or stability growing up whatsoever. He literally sings a song about it.
And the reason he chooses Westerburg is also quite obvious - he blames Westerburg because he things they “brainwashed” Veronica into leaving him. In his deranged, almost manic state, he somehow thinks that if all the people who “brainwashed” her are gone, she’ll love him again.
Making JD a female won’t change his/her motives. She’s still the same person with the same personality and the same experiences. (Also, just a note, he doesn’t just move all over the midwest. He mentioned las vegas, boston, who knows where else.)
And, saying he doesn’t have a specific “label” isn’t true; His label is freak. Instead of homo. It’s just freak. Pretty straightforward. He already faces “unending despair” for being an outcast/different from everyone else. Kurt and Ram literally attacked him because they thought he was a freak/gay. (“Hey sweetheart! What’d your boyfriend say when you told him you were moving to Sherwood Ohio?”) I can guarantee that JD hasn’t been intimate with anyone before Veronica, straight or not. And on a slightly unrelated note, I don’t even really think JD is straight; I’m strongly sure he’s panromantic/demisexual.
Also you said, “Veronica acts as her gateway to being gay.” This point I’m about to make could be argued, but I’ll just say for now, Veronica was also his gateway to actual love/intimacy. He literally felt no love whatsoever since his mom died, and having Veronica tell him she believed in/loved him changed everything for him and made him “snap”. He went from feeling absolutely nothing to absolutely everything.
JD also says, “I was a frozen lake; but then you melted me awake.” Implying that he felt he had nothing/wasn’t truly himself before he met her, which again, could be argued, but is still similar to female JD being hern “true self” with Veronica.
This is one of the things that gets me the most, and maybe I’m misunderstanding, it’s actually gonna be hard for me to word this right so bare with me lol. It seems like you said, ‘It doesn’t make sense for JD to blow up westerburg if she’s not gay, because westerburg took Veronica, the first girl she could ever be free with her sexuality with’ and that they took the one thing she loved and she felt drastic measures were necessary. The exact same thing is true with male JD. Veronica was his lifeline, the only thing he ever loved or cared about, and when he thought Westerburg took her away he was furious. It had nothing to do with his sexuality, only the fact that she was everything to him, and they took her away. This is the same reason he killed Heather, Kurt, and Ram. They threatened Veronica, and Veronica was everything to him. Pretty much everything you said about JD’s feelings for Veronica can be applied to male JD as well.
Heeeeeres what really got me, oh boy. You said male JD hurts people “because he likes to and it makes him feel good” not because he feels like he has to. This, my dear friends, could not be farther from the truth. He absolutely feels like he has to. Does he feel bad about it? No. Is there a chance he gets some pleasure from it? Possibly. But he does it because he feels it’s a necessity. One of his most important lines is that he wants to “make the world a decent place for people who are decent.” He feels the need to kill people, because he thinks that killing “bad” people will make the world a happier place for the “good” people. He does it because he feels like he has to. Has. To.
Also, as for Seventeen…Even if they were both girls, it wouldn’t change what Seventeen is about. It’s not about sexuality or forbidden love, and it wouldn’t be about that even if it was sung by two girls. It’s about JD being batshit crazy and Veronica begging him to calm the fuck down and have a normal life with her. Even if they were both girls, thats STILL what the song would be about.
Also, you mentioned how female JD gives “Our love is god” new life, and since it would take too long to write it out here, I’m just gonna helpfully link you to a big analysis of what ‘Our love is God’ actually means. Click here!
Also, as for the “Dead gay son” thing, people truthfully take that way too seriously. It’s not supposed to be symbolic or deep. They live in a small midwestern town in the 80s. Being gay is obviously a terrible thing there. JD thought it would be a funny prank to make them seem gay. It’s comedic. It’s Not That Deep.
Also, you mentioned dead girl walking - JD basically felt the same as a male that you say he does as a female. He’d never felt love or tenderness before, so when Veronica showed him that, it changed him (for better or worse???? Who knows folks.)

please don’t hate for this, like I get that lots of people will disagree but I just had to say this because it was seriously bugging me. so there ya have it folks.

I have a very low tolerance for bs and looking-to-start-crap anon messages right now, like… death anniversary of my dad on the 11th, 3rd death anniversary of my great-grandmother on the 10th, and my girlfriend’s grandmother passed away a few days ago, there’s arguably a lot of stress in our household atm, so I have neither the patience nor energy for drama and nonsense, let me be a whiny anxious ball on my little corner of the internet and if you don’t like it, no one’s making you stay
