I know a lot of the fandom is really good about not doing this but I’ve seen in a few times anyways so I feel like I have to say this:
STOP ERASING SHIRO’S CANONICAL DISABILITY.
Stop drawing fanart that depicts Shiro with his white hair and facial scar but with both of his arms. Stop drawing fanart that erases the fact that he is an amputee.
If it’s fanart that depicts him from before he lost his arm then there’s no problem.
Stop writing and drawing AUs that erase Shiro’s disability by giving him a different temporary injury or a tattoo or a “his arm isn’t lost just hurt really bad then gets better” story.
It’s erasure plain and simple. It’s erasing a characters canonical disability.
This also applies to erasing Shiro’s mental illness.
pidge and lance probably cause chaos in the castle of lions 24/7 by playing pranks on each other. so eventually shiro sits them down and asks them to stop, or at least tone it down a bit. so pidge and lance take it as a challenge and that seeing as they can’t play pranks of each other they’ll just play pranks on the other team members.
at first they start out kinda subtle by messing with shiro’s shampoo so every time he washes his hair his fringe will slowly turn more and more green. then they step it up a notch by constantly switching around people’s clothes and armor and pretending they have nothing to do with it. next up they pick sporadic times during the day in which to randomly exchange an item of clothing, this results in lance being asked a number of times why he’s wearing pidge’s glasses; to which he simply replies, “i’ve always worn these.” a step even further means rigging the castle’s overhead speaker system so whenever shiro enters a room darth vader’s theme starts to play. and of course the cherry on the top of the cake is the pair somehow miraculously managing to shave coran’s mustache off whilst keeping it as one whole and then supergluing it onto keith’s face whilst he sleeps.
shiro and allura have them cleaning the castle toilets for the next three months. they regret nothing
“Dude. It’s paintings and poetry. Together. It’s ‘swasome as hell. Da Vinci said it himself — painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”
“Wow. You have all quotes just ready to go, don’t you?”
“Nah, I just opened my book on a random page,” Nursey said, one arm still wrapped around Dex’s shoulders, and showed Dex the page he had read the quote from, making his defense partner snort. It was a side note, written in italics and underlined with a purple marker by Nursey — purple pen meant personal interest, Dex knew already. Just like he knew the red pen was for important stuff, the blue pen was for additional notes, the yellow marker was for the stuff his professor deemed especially important, and the green pen was to underline the lines in poems that were just “mad chill”. Dex had his colored pens right down to an art already and pretended that it wasn’t weird to know so much about Nursey’s studying habits.
“I’d read you one of the poems, but I thought you wouldn’t get it,” Nursey chirped as he finally closed the book. His arm was still around Dex’s shoulders. It was … nice. Weirdly nice.
“You got that right,” Dex chuckled. Seriously, Painting as Poetry? It sounded like a douchey book, assigned for a douchey class. No wonder Nursey was so over the heels for it. “Aren’t those artsy poems meant to be looked at, anyways? Not read out loud? If I remember anything from high school, that shit just sounds weird spoken out loud. Like a broken record.”
“Meh, I guess. But they’re pretty to look at,” Nursey shrugged. His arm was still around Dex’s shoulders. It was getting infuriating. Infuriating in a whole different way than Nursey’s presence usually was.
Dex tried to pretend he didn’t mind, though. In fact, he was almost afraid to move, aside from walking, in case he accidentaly ended this whole new, getting along thing they had going. They were always just one wrongful curve away from an argument, albeit that curve started to getting farther and farther away with each conversation, and he was just curious to see how long it was able to go. It was pure science.
Besides, it was nice. In a way he could all too easily get used to.
I bet Bucky loves it when you wear his dog tags during sex. Like just seeing the tags right between your breasts as they bounce from how hard he’s fucking you *sweats profusely* he’d love that shit so much!
And imagine all the pictures he’d take of you afterwards. Just a picture of your boobs and the tags, I bet he’d have an entire secret folder in his phone dedicated just for them. ;)
Maybe he’s got a video or two of him drilling you into the mattress and it zooms in right on your boobs.
Full offense I’m sick of this attitude towards bi characters where y'all think you can just erase their bisexuality. Go ahead, by all means ship them with a character of the same gender or of a different gender but nothing is changing the fact that they’re bi. Bisexual people don’t become magically gay or straight depending on who they’re currently with. They’re always bi. And theres nothing wrong with that!!! Absolutely nothing!!! Bisexuals dont need to pick a damn side!!! Fuck off with that shit! Stop treating bisexuality as an easily dismissed identity because it doesn’t suit your headcanons. Stop demonizing and erasing bisexuality. This bullshit is hurting REAL bisexual people. Stop it.
I was salty about the changes in art styles in su until I read the tags in that post you reblogged. Thank you for educating me that they are VISUAL INTERPRETATIONS of the characters, rather than INACCURATE DRAWINGS of the characters. As an artist, I would feel awful if a lot of people criticized my art because they want it to look a different way than I had portrayed it. Sorry for being ignorant before. Yall work hard, and do an amazing job with the art on the show tbh
thanks! i mean i don’t work on the show, but i am pretty tired that nobody considers that boarders all have their own style and draw the characters inthat style pretty darn consistently. i know who does “chibi steven”, who gives lapis what hair, and who makes peridot taller than others. none of that is a big deal to me - that’s how they interpret the characters, and there is no “on-model” version. it’s just your favorite vs least favorite boarder.
it’s an annoying discussion, because it always turns into double standards: giving earlier seasons a free pass, comparing completely different boarders, or comparing it to shows that aren’t storyboard-driven. none of that is fair to me. i’ve even seen people - friends - get hate because they *gasp* had the audacity to show that “hey, this is kind of a thing with storyboard-driven shows, it’s not some scandalous, new ~crossing the line of animation quality :’( </3 ~ that su is doing”.
people are allowed to not like ~inconsistency, even if intentional. i don’t care. but if animation “quality” matters that much to them, even when everything is intentional, even when each storyboarder is consistent in their own style, then, yknow… ok. keep raging on for another year, i hope it’s fun.
i don’t say “get a life” often, but… geez. if they’re so focused on the fandom they either A) let a rage-bandwagon define how they feel B) focus all that time on something they legitimatelyhate, then… idk. i just feel bad for them. i’m not gonna answer asks about this topic anymore, though, whether positive or negative, cause here’s the thing: once you decide it is, every show is bad. literally anything can be accused of being shit, because this standard that you’ve decided is the “standard of quality” is defined by you. anyone can draw a line in the sand - i’ve done that with shows too. i just want people to be honest with themselves, on whether going out of their way to “prove” something su has always done - intentionally - suddenly makes it bad now is worth it or not. or whether they’re getting any enjoyment out of this at all.
Can I say how much I love Yoo Jin Oh/Shin Yool. He is the purest cinnamon roll. He worships friendship more than love. I mean in any other drama the two male leads would probably fight for the girl. But eventhough Jin Oh/Shin Yool was sad about the two getting together he didn’t confront Han Se Ju ( something along the lines of you knew I liked her I wanted you to protect her from other guys not fall in love with her etc. etc.) he was just happy to be together with his friends just like in the past. So I don’t think he was a traitor in the past or did something out of jealousy cause that’s not in his nature. I just want him to have an happy ending ( eventhough his happy ending will probably tear my heart apart).
Me: (a person with a severe form of pots and eds) I don’t think I can walk today, can you get my wheelchair out of the trunk for me?
My sister: oh suck it up, I get tired sometimes too just get out and walk
Me: *gets out of car, literally passes out*
