favourite shadowhunters episodes (1/?)

1x12: malec

I can’t believe Stephanie Cordato Patrick accidentally ended up at a sketchy Halloween rave party in an abandoned warehouse without a floor.

I am incredibly interested in how she ended up there, especially considering she said you had to pay some guy on a street corner for a map.

so at first i was super against a white american light yagami bc omg Whitewashing and other related buzzwords and then when i actually sat down and thought about it for a couple minutes

it makes perfect sense that light’s white in the us version. and, in fact, it’s very important. japanese light yagami is a member of the racial majority in his own country. he’s also male, super-smart, and very attractive. this is a guy who has never personally experienced racism, sexism, societal rejection or personal rejection. he fits in without any struggle. that colors the way he sees himself in relation to other people, the way he sees himself in relation to the society he lives in, and the way others see him in relation to themselves, society, and, importantly, L.

L was not japanese. he was british. well, i think HTR13 said he was like half english, a quarter japanese, and a quarter russian or something but he was distinctly not japanese. light was japanese. the whole task force was japanese. light was the Prototypical Perfect Japanese Teen, and L was the weird unsettling outsider. this very clearly had an influence on what people believed about light.

having light be the Perfect White American Teenager while L is a strange awkward black man calling light kira without any conclusive evidence (or, actually, any evidence) is, in my mind, not whitewashing. it’s creating an analogue for what the situation was in the japanese version. the. the whole (white) task force is like “No. No way. light’s too pretty and smart and perfect to be a mass murderer, L must be wrong, there’s no way, light’s too perfect” would all those white people say exactly that about a non-white teen? i mean it’s true maybe they’d say that about an asian american kid but they would say it for different reasons.

so, i guess i agree with the people who are saying “it’s a US adaptation, it’s not that big of a deal” not because the argument there is Everyone In The US Is White or All Protagonists In The US Should Be White or…anything like that. it’s just that if you’re going to take someone who’s in the racial majority in one version, and make him a minority in another version, there’s a lot you’re going to have to tweak re that person’s relationship to himself/others/society. i understand the desire to keep those relationships analogous (i won’t say the same, because of course they’re not).

of course that said there’s still so much that i find Terrible about death noteflix but that’s all just…why does the trailer look and sound like an action thriller, why is kira called kira if he’s in the US, what is a japanese god of death doing in seattle, why does the cutural translation look so half-assed, etc. etc. (also nat wolff is NOT pretty enough to be light i’m not hating i’m just saying)

I just uploaded my desus fanart on redbubble, because you know, we need more desus merch.

So check it out, if you’re interested. Here’s the link x

  • Me: I'm so excited to continue updating my fanfic!
  • The goblin that lives in my brain: Well literally nobody else cares, you realize that, don't you? There's no reason why you should continue. Your writer's block is an indication that you need to stop, because all of your ideas are worthless and pointless and you'll never amount to anythi--
  • Me *teeth clenched, shoving the goblin back into its hole*: I am SO EXCITED to CONTINUE UPDATING my FANFIC!

honestly though?? i wish that robbie had gotten character development because like.,.. we all know that he isn’t really evil, he’s just socially awkward and needs some sleep! it was revealed the episode the first day of summer that he really loves everyone, and in the greatest gift when he’s so happy to be at the party and he’s so happy people invited him and he was so nervous…. robbie just needs someone *cough*sportacus*cough* in his life to help reassure him that he means something to people. i just wanted to see robbie become more happy and become nicer to everyone in town, he can be as lazy as he wants either way.

anonymous asked:

Do you ever question some of the things people request?

some of them have made us giggle, but at this point i think we’ve seen about everything and we’re not ones to shame (kink or not kink). i just wanna know how fic writers actually write those things with a straight face bc i know i would just be a blushing maiden the entire time
