I haven’t gotten the chance to finish this yet, but I think posting a WIP would be fun for this month’s prompt! Skeleton Dance is my favorite ship from WOY, so here’s an idea I had for a Beauty and the Beast AU.
Cause I believe Kimberly is scared of making Trini hate her as well
(giggling) Oh what you mean like that time you tore open your shirt in gym cause you shoved too many Dodge balls up there.
Zack (in the background):
Wait what. Please Kim, tell me this story.
(now annoyed) thanks Kim, now he's never gonna let this go, I asked you not to tell anyone. Christ, you can be really annoying sometimes, you know that?
(face falling) oh-oh right. I-I'm sorry. I didn't realise how- I'll just go.
Kimberly stands up, grabbing her things. Trini notices her bottom lip trembling, Kimberly obviously trying to mask her pain.
Trini (suddenly feeling very guilty):
shit Kim. I didn't mean it like that. Don't go.
no. No it's fine, I'll leave. I'm the one who should be sorry. I promised I wouldn't tell anyone and I broke that trust.
Trini (grabbing Kimberly's wrist, speaking softly) Kim. I'm not Amanda, I don't hate you. I was just annoyed, and you didn't betray me. You don't have to go.
you don't have to say that cause you feel guilty.
Trini (pulling Kimberly down next to her, Zack noticing this and leaving, giving the duo some privacy):
I'm not. I say things I don't mean when I get annoyed or angry. I wasn't angry at you, I was annoyed cause I knew Zack would use it against me in some way. I didn't mean to make you think I hated you.
Kimberly (struggling to keep the tears from falling):
it's just... After what I did to Amanda. I'm so scared everyone's going to hate me and leave when you all realise how much of a bitch I am. I'm scared you're going to leave me and I-I... I can't lose you too.
Trini (quickly pulling Kimberly into a tight hug, the Pink Ranger's body shaking as she sobbed into the Yellow Ranger's shirt):
we're never leaving you Kim. I'm never leaving you. You're stuck with me.
you say that like it's a bad thing.
to most people it is.
Kimberly (she murmured, leaning slowly up to the Yellow Ranger):
I'm not most people.
Trini (her voice breathy):
Kim. W-what- what are you doing?
something I've wanted to do since we jumped off the cliff.
you mean when you dragged me down with you.
Kimberly (giggling slightly):
eh. Tomato tomato.
Before Trini could retort with a sarcastic comment, Kimberly softly pressed her lips to Trini's. The shorter girl tasting the soft tears on Kimberly's lips.
Trini (after pulling away, causing Kimberly to whine):
I take back what I said earlier. You are definitely not annoying.
if that's what you think after I kissed you, maybe I should do it a bit more.
maybe you should.
Before they could though, they heard Zack cheering in the background.
I swear, if he watched all of that, I'll use him as my personal piñata.
She watched as the shorter Ranger chased Zack, hearing his screams as he ran out of the room, Kimberly wiped away her tears, all previous fears leaving as she gently touched her lips.
Kimberly (whispering to herself):
yeah I'm definitely fucking bi. Without a doubt.
<b>Hufflepuff :</b> You can do it, Marinette. Just speak to Adrien, I'll be there for you! I'm your bff, right?<p/><b>Gryffindor :</b> Hey you who's been akumatized, what about a fight with this cute little kitty? *pointing at himself*<p/><b>Ravenclaw :</b> LUCKY CHARM! 🐞 Well wtf is this shit hmm well let's see *beep beep with polka dot patterns on things you'll use* I think I can handle this<p/><b>Slytherin :</b> *dramatic background music playing* hmm a boy desperate for love, seeking for attention from his crush.. what a PERFECT combination<p/></p>
If you think me having that Lysandre face saved in a folder is something, I’ve also thought it would be funny to stretch it out and have it as my desktop background. I tell you no one has asked to use my laptop now!
Cons are the fact I keep forgetting this is my background in the morning and scaring me shitless when I boot up my computer…
I’ve had an AU in my mind for a while where the monsters aren’t Underground, but live up in a kingdom beyond the clouds. In said AU, Frisk is a rare human born with wings and lives among them, acting as a messenger of the skies with Sans and Papyrus. I’m calling the AU “Skytale”.
I plan to draw more of this AU, so expect more stories and character designs in the future!
While there are some downsides from Night School giving us a limited amount of knowledge about the characters, I love how it’s pretty much open to interpretation. So without further ado, I think it’s time to bring back some headcanons about Alex’s background in general!! Initially when I made this blog, I portrayed Alex as a Latino-American so that it goes with her last name, Carrillo. The reason behind that didn’t have much of a significance, other than the fact that I wanted to portray someone that was a person of color and how Alex’s dyed hair reminded me of some of my close Latino friends who have done the same with their own hair. I guess it was originally a tribute to them since I was moving away during that time. But then I remember holding a conversation with @wonderbrownie at how interesting it would be to see someone portray her as a Filipino-American. Especially since the original arg was going on at the time, I remember sharing Alex’s voice over with my sister, and it was funny that a conversation from a friend & a comment from a sibling made me decide to change her portrayal into Asian-American. So in regards to Alex’s deets, she’s half-Filipino, one-fourth Latino, and one-fourth Native American - specifically Abenaki; her Asian heritage comes from her mother’s side, while other parts of her ethnicity comes from her father’s. I’ve covered the reasons behind the former two, so this next portion will be in regards to her background as a Native American. One of the more prominent reasons would be how one of the island’s anomalies directly address towards Alex, stating how she will be a part of this heritage, a part of this “cleansing” that her Native American ancestors had experienced when Colonel Edwards took over Edwards Island; this parallels the possessions that the Sunken are applying towards the Oxenkids, but to make Alex personally related to this would make the moment even more horrifying to hear from her perspective. Even so, I specifically chose Abenaki because it’s similar to the one of the writers from the arg letters, Abnaki; it’s as if her ancestors are trying to warn Alex not to come to Edwards Island as well. Anyways, other thantheseasks, I should probably make a post about Alex’s family background and how they came to settle in Camena, Oregon in the first place.
Hey RWBY, wanna make it believable that Remnant has LGBT+ characters?
Use. The. Nameless! Background!! Characters!!!
You know, the ones that you think we don’t pay attention to, but we totally do because background stuff STILL contributes to world building? Do that!!!
Make 2 girls hold hands. Make 2 guys giggle coyly at each other. Show me a character with facial hair wearing a skirt unironically. AND I KNOW IT’S DOABLE BECAUSE OF HOW THE BG CHARACTERS WERE ANIMATED LAST SEASON!
.. so lately there has been tons of videos in the sims community and loads of lookbooks posted of showing 'diverse' sims, which is amazing by the way.
But what I've noticed about this is that people try so hard to make those ~diverse, different races~ sims that some of them completely lack and forget the basic things of the people they are trying to represent as their sim characters.
As an example, I know we all are incredibly diverse in the middle east, however if you make a sim with semi-dark skin with big lips and long lucious long dark hair and a beautiful body (alá kim kardashian) and call it a 'persian beauty' you're not representing persians and Iran in any kind of way, you're not making diverse sims you're just titling them so. PLEASE before you make a sim that is from a certain area look up ALL of their features, I am not just talking about the instagram girls who are mostly from the US or models, I mean us civilians with the big noses as an example. Us with dark frizzy hair, us with dark eyes and darker skin.
And most importantly our beautiful girls who don't have their faces caked in make up daily (not saying that cakeface is bad, some of yall rock that so good!) and might wear hijab instead of showing their hair.
Please respect those things and think about them before you choose to title your sim 'arab princess, persian beauty, egyptian queen' or anything like that.
Most of the Sims I see really go towards americans, people with a migration background but are currently living in the States and no, they represent us in some way but don't look like all of us. If you go out of your way to try to bring diversity into a game build around eurocentric standards please think about the majority's features and the culture behind them (like not wearing too open clothing, maybe covering parts of their hair).
