what do all these beloved classic authors have in common? that’s right. none of them were straight. not a one. every single author on this list experienced same-gender romantic attraction during their lives. literary tradition is a hundred times more queer than what your high school english class would ever let you know

when i came out as trans

[ or, toxic masculinity from the perspective of a trans guy ]

when i came out as trans my warm and loving family supported me

but they treated me differently

when i came out as trans my dad asked if he should start slapping me on the back and socking me in the arm instead of hugging me.

when i came out as trans my mom wanted to know if i would still got with her on fun trips to the mall to buy clothes and home decor items.

when i came out as trans my grandfather looked positively startled and overjoyed when i kissed his cheek and told him to drive safe.

when i came out as trans my grandmother asked if it was okay if she hugged me in public or if it would embarrass me.

when i came out as trans my dad told me that he had a lot to teach me— he said this because i told him i thought make up was fun.

when i came out as trans my aunt apologized for kissing me on the forehead.

when i came out as trans my uncle gave me a handshake rather than a hug.

when i came out as trans my cousins hesitated to hug me at the door.

when i came out as trans my family hesitated to show me the casual affection and platonic love they had previously felt free to give.

end toxic masculinity.

show your sons as much affection as you would show your daughters.

let your sons indulge in beauty when they want to and always support them.

do not think for one second that the societal expectation of masculinity is more important than the individual feelings and needs of someone you love.

Player: Can I do the thing?

Mutants and Masterminds: Yes you can do the thing.

GURPS: Fill out these forms in triplicate.

Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition: Yes, but it’s really not worth it unless you are a Dream Elf with the Godblooded feat and at least five levels in the Thingomancer Prestige class from Complete Thing. Or you could just play a Wizard, they get The Thing as a 3rd level spell.

Call of Cthulu: You can do the thing, but you REALLY don’t want to.

FATE: That depends, can you bullshit the GM into believing that one of your vaguely-worded aspects supports you doing The thing?

7th Sea: Only if the thing is properly dramatic!

Shadowrun: Yes, but you’ll need a bathtub full of D6s.

Paranoia: The thing is treason.

also, as a quick aside...

while i do try to support all headcanons, i really want to remind this fandom to try and be conscious of design choices. specifically, the races and skin colors you decide to give to characters when you design them. it’s been less than a day since the new episode came out and already a large amount of the john designs i’ve seen have been black men (mostly dark-skinned). i obviously support headcanoning characters as black but it’s concerning to me that so many people have immediately decided to design john, our pretentious cocksure devoid-of-positive-emotion megalomaniac of a Big Bad, as a black person, especially when their headcanons for most other characters are non-black or black but light-skinned.

like i said, i’m not trying to dissuade people from having black headcanons in general, i’m just trying to remind white people and other non-black POC to be critical and self-aware when creating our fan designs for characters.

(if any of my black followers feel that i’m out of line addressing this, please let me know)

I don’t normally do this type of thing, and have only done it once for Popplio, but I want to know how many supporters there are for Lycanroc Dusk Form on this site, and in the Pokemon community. So if you could please respond to this post, that would be really helpful in showing that this form is loved and show that some people actually do care for it!

Remember, there are no bad Pokemon nor Pokemon forms, just bad trainers!

hooookay, ramble time here, going to try to be as diplomatic as possible about this but who knows… 

Half of my dash right now is like ‘please stop abusing Loki he’s been through enough crap’ and the other half is like ‘please stop turning Loki into a poor misunderstood baby’ and I’m just sitting here, awkwardly in the middle and understanding both sides and it’s slightly uncomfortable and really frustrating. Especially as someone who roleplays Loki. 

The thing about Loki is… he goes out of his freaking way to antagonise people, especially the people who try most to help him. No, he does not deserve a lot of the crap he’s been through. But then he turns around and tries to make himself the villain (with like 50/50 success), whether out of bitterness or fear or spite, and there comes a point where you can’t keep trying to dissect his true motivation. Should Loki’s imprisonment have been handled differently, more gently? Yeah, probably. Did he give anyone any reason to think it might help? Not in the slightest. He has come to believe that everyone sees him as the bringer of chaos, and instead of trying to convince them otherwise, he embraces the role, and that is his choice

He is misunderstood. Why? Because he takes such great pains to keep it that way. And that’s the thing I feel like a lot of the fandom, whether they want to hug Loki or not, misses. That he is his own worst enemy, and will always be. 

And a side note, like, the clip of Thor throwing something at him? That is not a violent gesture. Thor hardly even uses his arm–it’s a flip of the wrist. That’s an irritable ‘hey you jerk’ toss between siblings, and I’m really sceptical of calling that ‘abuse’. 

“no terfs allowed”

pretty quickly after i came out as a lesbian on this website, i added “no terfs allowed” to my bio. every lesbian i follow has it in their bios. i follow wlw who aren’t lesbians, and while some have it in their bios, it’s less common.

i’ve been thinking about the general sentiment of “fuck you, terfs,” and why it bothers me. it’s not the attitude against terfs (i don’t like them or want to associate with them either), but rather the performative nature of it. it allows us afab wlw to sit comfortably knowing we’re not one of Them. it allows us to get comfortable, to wrongly assume that our job as allies is done because we said we don’t affiliate with terfs.

first of all, while all terfs are transphobes, not all transphobes are terfs. all of us (afab wlw) have privilege over trans wlw, even if we are nonbinary (as i and many of my afab lesbian friends are). we all need to be aware of our own privilege and not distance ourselves from it by proudly displaying our anti-terf sentiment. sometimes i think by saying “i’m not a terf and i don’t affiliate with terfs” what comes out is “i’m not holding myself accountable for my own transphobia because it’s not me who’s the problem.” we’re turning terfs into scapegoats for transphobia (and especially transmisogyny) and that’s such a reductive view of the way that systematic oppression works.

second of all, afab wlw, to an extent, should want terfs to follow them because assuming we’re doing our jobs as allies, we’re potentially exposing people with toxic views to information and opinions that they might otherwise not hear. i would much rather a terf be following me than be following a trans woman. the violence a transmisogynist could enact on me is significantly less, so i should be putting myself between terfs and trans women, amplifying the voices of trans women in the hopes that terfs and transphobes will hear. cis/afab wlw telling terfs to go away is shutting a door. it’s one thing to not want them on your blog in order to protect yourself; that i understand. it’s a whole other thing to keep them from reading what you write and reblog because they have bad opinions (to put it lightly). how are their opinions ever going to change if they never leave their echo chamber?

third of all, i think the whole “no terfs allowed” thing swings back to the scapegoating of the lesbian community within the lgbt+ population. before, when i identified as bi/pansexual, i never felt like i needed to make excuses for the label i chose. sure, i spent some time defending my sexuality as i faced biphobia (and my own internalized homophobia), but i never found myself saying “i’m bi, but i’m not one of the Bad Ones” the way that i feel like i have to say all the time as an out lesbian. to the point where i have to essentially write, “i’m not one of the Bad Ones” in my own bio to justify my being a lesbian in an online public space. i know this is a much more complicated issue than i am making it out to be in this post, but it does really bother me that every afab lesbian i know also feels this need to clarify their position on this matter when it seems like no other subgroup of the lgbt acronym does. 

so putting in your description something like “no terfs allowed” is performative allyship, but it also feels like a necessary defense against lesbophobic assumptions. both things bother me, but i feel helplessly caught in the middle - it’s necessary for me to protect myself against lesbophobia by putting it in my description, but in doing so i feel like i am failing to do my full part as an ally to trans women 

this post is okay to reblog, and in fact i would love to hear other people’s (especially other lesbians’, and especially trans lesbians’) input on this

       go where YOU want to go; if you have more than one blog try not to stress about how many drafts you have. It may seem like the end of the world if you haven’t replied in a few days, but the truth is the world is still spinning. You should go where you want to go! if you’re not feeling a certain blog then log out and go onto one you’re feeling, or log off and do something else! don’t force yourself to be somewhere just out of obligation. RP is supposed to be a hobby, it’s supposed to be fun and if you’re not enjoying being on a blog then maybe you need a break. You do you, don’t worry about anybody else! your blogs are yours and nobody else’s and nobody can tell you where to be. Taking a break from one blog to spend time on another doesn’t make you a bad person and i think that we as muns and people need to realise that.

Do’s and Don’ts Fanfiction Addition

(All of this goes for my asthetics as well)

DO’S

1. Hit like if you think the story is good. 

2. Hit reblog if you think it is really good. It spreads the story around tumblr and never takes away credit from it’s owner. 

3. If you see mistakes in a fic send a kind ask or IM asking if the author is interested in you telling them about them. Be kind and respectful and remember most work has already been passed by a beta and you are sitting with a finished product before you. 

4. Leave feedback in forms of replies, reblogs or asks. Authors are a sensitive bunch and lack of feedback is discouraging and can make us wanna stop at times. 

5. If you think it is really awesome create a recommendation post. Add all your favs with summaries and maybe even a small blurb why it was so good. Link to the original fic and tag the authors. 

DON’Ts

1. Don’t send an anon ask telling the author how the story sucked. Actually don’t tell the author the story sucked. If you don’t like - scroll past. You are not a reviewer. Art is subjective and what you hate another person can love. You’re opinion is not facit. If you feel the abosolute need to voice your opinion be specific: “I felt this was out of character because…” And rule of thumb for every negative thing you say. Say two possitive. People are not gonna listen to assholes. 

2. Don’t kink shame. Don’t ship shame! Not in reblogs. Not in replies. Not in aks. No where. If it is not your cuppa tea - scroll past. 

3. DON’T LEAVE HATE for a character or actor the fic is about in your reblog of the fic. Don’t send asks like that or leave replies like that either. If the person/character was portrayed in a possitive light in the fic it is probably cause the author loves and respects said person/character. Don’t be a dick! 

4. DON NOT COPY PASTE ANYTHING ANYWHERE!!! I do not care if you copy paste fics or download aesthetics for your own use. If you didn’t ask - YOU ARE STEALING!! If you post it elsewhere without the authors permission it is plagiarism. I don’t care if you say the fic or aesthetic is not yours. It is THEFT! If you want something to post - CREATE! That’s how the rest of us does it. No it is not easy. But it is honest and the likes, followers, reblogs, comments… they are all earned and won’t leave you with a bitter aftertaste. 

JUST THINK PEOPLE. WOULD YOU LIKE THIS DONE TO YOU? NO? THEN DON’T DO IT TO OTHERS. BE KIND. BE RESPECTFUL. AND IF IN DOUBT? ASK THE OWNER! ALWAYS ASK.  

Keep reading

rant. sorta. hiatus.

I’ve just found out that some people here think I’m using my blog for the wrong purpose, that I’m cliquey, and that they dread being associated with me. That’s completely fine but that’s not who I am.

I talk to everyone who talks to me. I have trouble reaching out to people because I don’t want to bother anyone. I don’t think everyone wants to talk to me or anything similar, so I don’t reach out to people. I have mutuals that I adore, but I’m too scared to talk to them because I feel like I’ll be bothering them. I still feel annoying when I message some people, for example @noona-la-la-la, who I’ve been following from day one, let alone when I message people I’ve just met or that have just followed me.
As for the cliques … I have a couple of writer friends. I talk to a lot of writers, but it’s about our stories and it’s basically mutual fangirling.
I think it’s extremely unfair of people to talk about me when they don’t know who I talk to and they can’t see my inbox. I talk to a lot of writers who are just getting started, I just don’t promote people because I don’t want to get used for that. If everyone on my blog asked me to promo them, this would become a promo blog and I don’t think you guys are here for that - this is a fanfic blog. I think anyone can understand that. Besides, I’d like to think that the people whom I talk to aren’t here to get promoted but are here because they like talking to me, even if they are considered “smaller blogs”. That’s so subjective and depends on so many things like how often you post, what members you post about, how long you’ve been on this site, what time of day/week you post, who reblogs your stories etc. Notes don’t mean quality.

At the end of the day, I am who I am. I may come off as mean to some people, but I know in my heart I’ve tried to be the best person I can. If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I’ve been through a ton of shit this year, starting from a breakup of a 4 year relationship to getting diagnosed with a disorder (which I don’t want to get into because it’s TMI and it’s personal). I like to keep my things private and I think people tend to forget they’re not the only person that follows me and that I’m a real person with real problems and feelings. Right now, there are about 28 000 people on my blog. To me, that number is INSANE. This isn’t me boasting or bragging about it - I don’t think my blog deserves that many followers at all. I don’t deserve that kind of attention. There are people that are so much more talented than I am that don’t get enough attention and I don’t think I’m better than anyone. I don’t even know what most of the followers are doing here since a lot less people interact with me than before. But realistically, if anyone thinks I can talk to a hundred people daily and answer all the asks I get and write and work and deal with personal shit all the time, I’m willing to give them my password and see them try to keep up with it. It’s hard to deal with your own life and then come to tumblr and get messages about people asking you to help them overcome depression and suicidal thoughts, asking advice about a breakup, asking help about tumblr stuff, about uni, school etc. I’m not a machine. When someone sends me a message saying they want to die, I feel like shit because I know nothing I say can help that person and I try to come up with the best answer possible to give them some comfort and try to get them to ask for help. So if I don’t reply to an ask asking about when I’m updating something, it’s because I tend to prioritize the asks I get, if I even get the time to go through them.
This is tumblr, not the real world. It isn’t something serious, it doesn’t mean anything, it doesn’t change anyone’s value as a person. I DON’T THINK I’M BETTER THAN ANYONE HERE, especially not based on notes and follower count. Personally, I felt happier when I had around 1 or 2 000 followers because I knew they were all here for my stories and not for whatever reason they are now, and I talked to a lot of them on a daily basis and I still do. Now I don’t even recognize most of the usernames that like and reblog my stories because that would just be impossible. It’s easy to preach when you’re not in this situation, I think.

If you’ve ever felt ignored, I’m sorry. I’ve tried to reply to every ask and message I got, but a couple of months ago, I was going through something and I let them pile up. And then I just didn’t have the mental strength I needed to go and answer the asks so I let them pile up and I hated logging on. Then I had a literal breakdown and I deleted the 4K messages that were in my inbox because they were just adding to my already insane anxiety. They were stressing me out and I felt horrible for not being able to reply to all of them and they just kept piling up and I wanted to delete the blog and everything that came with it, but the problem wasn’t this blog or the asks or the questions - it was me and my anxiety and I’m aware of that. If that makes me a bad person, I’m a bad person.

To the people with the mean comments - I wish you all the best. I hope you get a lot of followers, lots and lots of them since I’m being judged based on that, and when you do, you will see that it isn’t as amazing as you think it is, and it isn’t easy to keep up with everything. If you’re offended by this post, I’m sorry. That was not my intention. I just want to give my opinion since I’m being judged without anyone even talking to me or addressing it directly instead of behind my back. I’m a person, not a robot behind a blog. When I find out someone’s talking about me behind my back, it hurts, despite this being virtual and despite these people not really knowing anything about me. It hurts because it’s not fair. But the world isn’t fair and I’ll deal with it.

To everyone else, thanks for your support. You guys have helped me a lot without even knowing. I’ve posted about my personal issues through my stories a bunch of times because it was my way of dealing with those things and the conversations I had with you guys about my stories have been so pleasant and some of them have helped me a lot. Thanks for being here and for reading my stories. Conversations with you guys have helped me deal with the problems I have. Like I always say, you’ve made Tumblr my happy place. I know it sounds corny, but a lot of times I would feel horrible and this was the only place I had, and you made it great for me. I loved logging on and talking to you and just being here in general. 💗
I’m going on hiatus because of my master thesis, but also because I keep getting dragged into childish drama that I don’t want to be a part of. I don’t want to log on and see posts about me, posts shading me, or trying to make me feel like shit. I don’t think I’ve done something to deserve that. This is a social media site, not my life, and it shouldn’t be anyone’s.

I’ve been commenting that I don’t read a lot of fanfic, but that’s obviously a lie. This is what I read. This is what I check updates on at work, what makes flail like an idiot when there’s a new chapter.

If you read a story or prompt you like, TELL THE AUTHOR. Incomprehensible keyboard slams are our currency and positive feedback is our oxygen. We read the tags (who reblogs things without tags?!) as much as we do the comments, or otherwise anons are always a wonderful option if you’d like to be subtle… but then come off anon so we can love you.

I really felt the need to share the love that y’all have extended to me as I’ve began my fanfic journey. This fandom is the best.

If you don’t believe or see the problem with Korea’s blatant racism and discrimination against Southeast Asians and dark-skinned east Asians, you need to watch this. THIS IS COLORISM. This is the dark side of Korea and non-Asian and Asian kpop fans alike need to be aware of these issues and stop ignoring them.

I will not censor my muse,

…but I do respect you as a writer, and will discuss plot points with you (hopefully) before censoring becomes an issue.

There’s a lot of stuff going on both sides of this debate, and both sides have some fair points, and some not fair points. I’m not going to get into which I agree with and which I don’t so instead this is a different kind of PSA. A respect PSA; a PSA that tells you that I respect you, BUT I demand the same respect.

Some writers out there write problematic characters. Some prefer gritty, horror, violent threads. There are many writers out there that write very powerful characters (from gods to beings who span millennia). I am one of those writers. I fully understand the damaging power of my characters. I also understand their limitations, and most of the time they don’t make poor life decisions (such as to piss off the god that could crush them with hardly a thought). I am finding that not all writers have this common sense, and it is unfair to ask those that DO to censor their characters actions when provoked.

Here is my take on RP Etiquette –

If my character is in a situation to which they will be saying or doing something that may invoke a violent reaction from yours, I will message you to discuss it first. It may not be in my character’s best interest to do so, and in those cases I have to consider how far I will let them go…but, I refuse to muzzle them. I will not censor their faults for your sensibilities.

I ask the same respect in return.

I read everyone’s rules (usually multiple times, especially before responses for slower threads just to refresh myself) and I will never move a plot in the direction of someone’s known trigger. That being said, sometimes we don’t know all of our squicks and triggers, and if something makes you uncomfortable, you’re more than welcome to come talk to me about it. It may mean that something in your last response needs to change so that my response can change. Because I won’t censor my muse, but I am willing to rethink current paths of action, as long as you are as well.

What I will not do is muzzle my muse’s violent, problematic behaviour, if your muse is antagonistic and inspires such reaction. Many of us play problematic characters, we love them for their faults (in some cases we look for character development to help them through/beyond those faults, but not everyone does, and some faults can’t be “fixed”). What we do not want is to be asked to play them according to your perception based on a scene you saw once (and thus felt a powerful, problematic character can be “changed”), or because you decided you shipped the faceclaim, or for whatever else reason. This is a form of god-modding, and if asked to change my character because you think they should be written X way instead of Y way…well, we’re just not compatible writers. This is a collaboration; not your fanfiction.

I know Gon’s alright now, but I’m still not over the fact that he purposely wanted to kill himself. I won’t ever be over it. 

This adorable kid

Who always had the brightest smile

Who always seemed like he didn’t have a single worry at all

Had so many dark demons he kept locked up inside

it took losing someone he admired to finally break him, and I’m pretty sure he was holding up pent up emotions for years but always felt the need to hide it behind a smile.

Which is why, again, people should appreciate how realistic Gon’s emotions during the CA arc are. No, he’s not a toxic character. He’s a boy who has many guilt issues, and is always quick to blame himself before blaming anyone else. Even when he met Ging, he said ‘’I should’ve been the one who died instead!’’ because he felt SO guilty about what happened. 

Hey everyone, this is a really difficult post for me to make, but as part of my recovery this is something I want to talk about. I ask that you please read as much of it as you can before responding.

The MAP community on tumblr is dangerous to minors and to some extent dangerous to the people involved in it as well. I know because I was involved in it.

Also: The camera switches to Dean's face. During the "I love all of you" Cas' voice is a lot more steady, he looks up to Sam (I think), but his eyes dart straight back to Dean (who seems to be trying to say something). One other thing! Cas' didn't say "I love you. All of you", she made two independent sentences, as though he tried to show that he was talking about two different things. But I am no meta writer, so I'd love to know what you think about it.(sry for any English faults btw) 2/2

Hello, dear! I believe you sent me two messages (because of the 2/2), but unfortunately I never received message number 1. However, let’s talk about the infamous “I love you” you mentioned in this message.  

In someone else’s post about that specific scene that I reblogged probably a day after the episode aired, I said that when Cas first said “I love you”, I understood it as his way of expressing his feelings for the three Winchesters present. However, WHY IN THE NAME OF CHUCK DID CAS FEEL THE NEED TO CLARIFY HIS “I LOVE YOU”?

The moment he said “I love all of you”, I had to stop and think for a moment. That simple sentence completely changed the meaning of the first one. It’s obvious that Cas felt he needed to clarify because the first “I love you” wasn’t clear enough. That was an incredibly ambiguous scene because there are three ways in which we could read the whole thing:

  • Interpretation 1: When Cas said “I love you” he meant the three of them, but he thought that because his history with Mary is very brief compared to the one he has with the brothers, she wouldn’t think his statement included her. That’s why he wanted to make sure she understood that he loves HER as much as he loves her sons.
  • Interpretation 2: When Cas said “I love you” he meant the three of them, but he thought that both Sam and Mary wouldn’t think they were included there because of the more profound bond he shares with Dean. That’s why he wanted to ensure that all three Winchesters knew they mean a lot to him, not just Dean.
  • Interpretation 3: When Cas said “I love you” he said it for Dean, but then he wanted to extend the feeling to the rest of his family because he wanted them to know the three of them were important to him.

The audience was in charge of deciding which interpretation they preferred. The people who can’t pick up on any kind of subtext probably thought the first “I love you” was for Dean and Sam and the clarification was meant to include Mary. On the contrary, the biggest Destiel shippers probably picked the third interpretation, the one in which the first “I love you” was meant for Dean.

Although the three interpretations are equally valid, the first one makes more sense only in text. When you watch the scene, though, the third interpretation is more logical. Why do I say that? It’s just that when Cas starts giving his speech, he has no trouble looking at the three Winchesters. His eyes go from Sam to Dean to Mary and over again. He doesn’t keep eye contact with any of them for too long but looks at the three of them. Even when he says, “You’re my family”, he looks at Sam, then at Dean, then at Mary, but then he does this:

He can’t meet anybody’s eyes! Why does Cas avoid eye contact?

Besides, as you pointed out, the camera immediately switches to Dean. Why? Why would they do that?

When Cas says “I love all of you”, he doesn’t look at the three of them as he did when he said they were his family. He just briefly looks at Sam and then keeps eye contact with Dean like this:

And Dean’s reaction? He looks like he just figured out what Cas meant (just as the rest of us did):

If we just read the transcript of the episode, we may interpret Cas’ lines differently. The thing is that the camera shots, Misha’s and Jensen’s acting choices, all that contribute to a Destiel-friendly interpretation of the whole thing. 

Let’s also remember that only two episodes before, Dean was kinda established as Castiel’s human weakness (AGAIN). Just two episodes before we learned that angels can have feelings for humans.

In conclusion, we’re not delusional. We’re just reading the signs that the writers, directors, actors, and editors are putting there.

If people decide they prefer interpretation 2 that I mentioned above, it’s still Destiel-friendly. It still means Cas himself thinks that if he says “I love you” when Dean is present, people won’t include themselves in the statement because they will think that Cas means only Dean. Cas feels he needs to clarify who he means because people will associate Cas’ I love you to Dean for default.

Personally, I’m OK with interpretations 2 and 3, but I’ll stick with the third one because it’s the one that makes more sense when you’re actually watching the scene without wearing heteronormative goggles.

(Renew) The Get Down

I don’t usually post stuff like this or should i say never have post stuff like this and i understand that i’m not the best writer or even a good one but i need to write this and i need you guys help and sorry for posting this in this blog but i need to reach as manny people as possible.(reblog and thank you for reading).

so by now fans of the show know that Netflix decided to cancel the show (something i found out while finishing episode 5 of part 2 so you guys can imagine how i felt while watching the finale) and the cancellation of the show only sink in after i finished watching the finale and after like 5 Minutes after for some reason my eyes got watery this is something that never have happen to me before and this sudden feeling of anger and sadness came to me something i never felt before for a show, there have been other shows that i liked that got cancelled but i never got upset ‘i would just find another show’ but to me the cancellation of this show felt personal this to me atleast was the first time that as a Puerto Rican i felt like i was represented and not just represented like ‘hey that guy in the club or the that third guy in the show is Puerto Rican or some dude was talking about their Puerto Rican friend’ nah in this show we were FRONT AND CENTER.

As a Puerto Rican we 99% of the time we NEVER get represented and if we do is always as the fat gangster,or the guy who cuts the white lady’s grass or as a bad joke,and this is not me hating white people but most if not all of white people are numb to the feeling of being amaze of seeing yourself and your people represented (and to be honest i don’t think they know how that feels) in a show or a movie to the fact that i get to see myself and my people in a show portrayed in a fun,real way even if the character was just half Puerto Rican. so yeah i’m angry to the fact that instead of just replacing the showrunner with someone else netflix decided to cancel the show instead of just looking for someone else to run the show.i didn’t even care if they lower the show’s budget but the fact that they cancel the show just makes me mad, one of the many thing’s i liked about the show is the representaion of Minority’s from Puerto Rican To Black people and how we struggle in the 70′s and still do.

Right now as i’m writing this tha only thing i can hear is how hard i’m pressing my keyboard…for me and as for many other fans of the show it wasn’t just a show to us. to me The Get Down represented hope and a one of kind pleasure that you can only get from watching something that speaks to you in a personal level that speaks to your heart something that gives you hope,inspiration and acknowledgement, something that says you exist so netflix didn’t just cancel a show they cancel us.
