Has Tumblr caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why?
As a Voltron blog, all I can say to this is: u bet. And you all know why. Moral policing on the internet is a foolish endeavor at best, pathetic at worst. Bye, asshats.
But then again, fandoms in general always suck if you end up on the wrong side of them. As the legend goes, there are no good fandoms, only good friends. And I have found plenty of those even via this clusterfuck of a fandom so :’’’)
Say something genuinely nice about a character who isn’t one of your faves.
I mean you can dismiss Zarkon as a one dimensional power hungry turtle man all u want but he does have his glowy purple aesthetic going for him
O – Choose a song at random. Which ship or character does it remind you of?
The song that came up on shuffle was Blinding by Florence + the Machine! It really reminds me of Allura waking up from cryosleep, only to realize everything’s fallen apart around her, and all she can do in the face of horror is decide to be strong. Oh shit I’m gettin emotional lads ;-;
V – Which character do you relate to most?
My kneejerk reaction is to yell “LANCE!” but if I’m honest with myself that might have a lot more to do with projecting than anything else sdjglsdgsg… But, yeah, like … he seems confident and funny and talks a big game, but is actually pretty squishy and scared of a lot of things on the inside. So. There’s that. I’d die for him
I also relate to Pidge a lot!! Pidge is honestly one of the best characters I’ve ever encountered??? A gender non-conforming tech whiz with her own character arc, sign me uppp. Also, you can pry nonbinary Pidge from my cold dead enby hands, because Pidge is very much a comfort character in regards to that Struggle™. So @ all assmasters trying to kill this hc: shut ur mouth and let people have different headcanons. You don’t see me shitting on yours.
Have you added anything cracky/hilarious to your fandom? If so, what?
I DON’T KNOW. I DON’T THINK SO?? Unless having a really embarrassing crush on a still-nonexistent, evil, purple alien man who might be part cow counts??????
Y – What are your secondhand fandoms (i.e., fandoms you aren’t in personally but are tangentially familiar with because your friends/people on your dash are in them)?
Batfam stuff (u know who u are), Star Wars, and The Adventure Zone. Those are the main ones I think!
U – Three favorite characters from three different fandoms, and why they’re your favorites.
sdgkjsdg why u tryna get me to write an essay??? also here’s me exposing myself as a huge weeb
Lavi from D.Gray-man: He’s been my husband for like 6 years now. I always love the seemingly happy-go-lucky characters who actually have a lot more depth to them. When I realized he and Lance have almost exactly the same personality, I called myself out so loud I nearly broke my own eardrums
Shinji from NGE: I was really blown away by Evangelion once I finally watched it, and I think it’s because Shinji’s emotions especially felt very real to me? His depression and self-loathing was really shown, not told, and that sounded super emo but yeah I treasure Shinji a lot
Cloud from FFVII: I’ve had a crush on Cloud for a really long time too aaaa and I guess it’s just that … he really embodies the FF aesthetic that I love so much?? The perfect mix of fantasy and scifi, nostalgia and modernity? And he plays it so cool with his bigass sword and fancy motorcycle but is actually canonically a massive dork god ilhsm
