So I’m probably going to get hate for saying this but tbh I don’t care about the skin color of TV characters or movie characters. At all.
I don’t friggin care about “whitewashing”
I don’t care if the entire cast is black
I don’t care if the entire cast is white
I don’t care if the entire cast is purple with polkadots made out of the friggin color from H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Colour Out of Space”
LISTEN: You don’t need a character to have the same skin color as you to be able to relate to them.
You do not need a character to have the same skin color as you to be able to enjoy them.
And believe me, I know. I’m not black and yet there are some black characters whom I really relate to and enjoy.
Case in point? Iris West from CW’s The Flash. For the first season I was kinda neutral towards her, but when she landed a journalistic job and became more aware of Barry’s feelings towards her I really started to grow attached. I’m a journalistic writer like Iris, I’ve got two siblings like Iris, I’m here for emotional support like Iris, if my brother/boyfriend was a superhero I’d probably run around getting myself into trouble like Iris, too. #IrisWestIsTheNextLoisLane
My point is that you don’t have to have the same skin color as someone to be able to relate to them!
My point is that skin color doesn’t matter because we’re all humans. People of every ethnicity go through the same struggles, such as:
Vanity & Pride
Yeah basically all the 7 deadly sins
I could go on but I think y’all get the point.
I just can’t see any reason for why we need to have exactly 25% black characters and 25% Asian characters and 25% Muslim characters and–
like, for the love of Dormammu I don’t care, just give me a compelling character who’s going through a relatable struggle
I can understand why it would matter if you’re trying to make a film that focuses specifically on racism, or the Holocaust, or oppression as a key theme. Then I can understand why casting and skin color matters.
But the vast majority of entertainment are about superheroes and ninja turtles and starship captains and elves and teenage drama and adult drama. Most of these shows and movies take place in privileged America where your biggest dilemma is the fact that they took Doctor Who off of Netflix, not the fact that you fear getting shot in the streets because of your skin color.
To clarify: I’m not against having a diverse cast. I’m not saying that we should just turn a blind eye to racism. I’m not saying hate crimes don’t happen in America.
What I’m saying is that if you really want to make a change, focus less on entertainment (which you are so very privileged to receive in the first place) and more on the REAL issues in the world, like the fact that people are dying for being LGBT, women are being raped. Stop complaining about how some dumb TV show didn’t cast enough black people and try doing something substantial for once. Go out and join a club that actually raises funds to help people or something.
I feel like we’re getting worked up over all the wrong things.
i really hate how fanfic is viewed as less valuable than other writings because people assume it’s easy to write when you’re using the basis of another work… honestly, writing within the frame of someone else’s creation can be even more challenging than writing something original and even plotless smut takes a lot of effort and practice to get right !! idk i’m just sick of hearing fanfic trashed and fanart praised to the heavens because apparently it’s so much harder to create art than it is to write :):))
It’s only okay for antisocial people to be antisocial as long as we don’t actually act antisocial. It’s only okay for me to experience low empathy as long as I pretend to understand others’ emotions. It’s only okay for me to lack remorse as long as I pretend to understand what I’ve done wrong. It’s only okay to be mentally ill as long as I don’t act mentally ill.
Summary: Bucky, reader, and the rest of the Avengers go to a carnival on their night off.
Word Count: 1,998
Warnings: language, panic attack, carnival rides (?), and fluff. (Let me know if I missed any)
A/N: Hey guys, so this is my first fic lol. I was a little nervous to post it on here… I hope you guys like it. I’d love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for reading. :)
P.s. this will probs be long bc I’m horrible with getting rid of words lol don’t hate me pls.
It has been a while since you and the Avengers had a night out all together, so you guys decided to go somewhere. When out for their early morning run, Steve, Bucky, and Sam saw a poster for a carnival that was coming to town during the weekend.
The three of them thought this would be a great thing to do to get their minds off of the stress works caused recently, with saving the world and all. Out of the three, Bucky was definitely jumping up and down on the inside. It’s been a while since he’s attended one, give or take 70 years.
Once they shared the news with everyone else, they all agreed with the idea of going. You, on the other hand, were nervous to say the least. Being the one who only played the games in the booths rather than taking risks and trying the big rides, you wondered if this was really the best situation for you. You knew someone was going to drag you on a ride whether you liked it or not, so you really didn’t have a choice.
OH MY GOD ok so dearsheroozle was sick and requested a Sweaty Engineering!Asami and Flustered!Korra drawing and I as usual made this way harder and more complicated than it needed to be and didn’t plan it out very well at all and had to just sort of make it work and anyway here it is
The lyrics “I hope the sun shines and it’s a beautiful day and something reminds you, you wish you had stayed, you can plan for a change in weather and time but I never planned on you changing your mind” will always hit me like a bus full of emotions.
hi my name is noot and i watch anime while intensely sick and unable move
here’s some hot takes for you
drifters: drifters is anime about historical figures getting sent to to an alternate reality, with elves and magic and shit. it’s by the guy what did hellsing. you will spend the entire time entranced by gore and excited by good fight tactics and good op, but also incredibly upset that there’s only two historical lady figures. where my ladies at, hirano. where are you hiding them.
izetta: izetta: the last witch is anime about a cute girl who flies around on a sniper rifle, and her girlfriend, the archduchess of austria. Together They Fight The Nazis. it is good balance of war epic, spy thriller, and cute girls. you will spend much of your time hoping sweet darling baby izetta doesn’t get hurt and also gives princess the smooch.
yuri!!! on ice: yuri!!! on ice is anime about yuri, who beefed his skating career. then he made a viral video and his idol becomes his coach, also boyfriend. other yuri is young and russian and mad and wants to fight our sweet boy yuri. mens figure skating is a sport about appealing to the female gaze for points. you will spend much time cheering for all the skaters and wondering if yuri will kiss the boys. he does.
bbk/brnk: bubuki/buranki is anime that asks what if we took eureka seven, but gave the main character even less personality and worse design than everyone else. also cg, but The Good CG. you will spend the entire time wondering when it will focus on those other characters again, so you can go back to trying to enjoy the show.
flip flappers: flip flappers is anime about girl named cocona who goes on adventures
with a girl named papika in a dreamland called pure illusion to collect fragments that will grant wishes if they get all of them. there are secret organizations, lisa frank aesthetic, and a story that just seems to run with it. you will want to spend time asking where it’s going, but can’t because you are having Too Much Fun.
i don’t remember what else i watched cause i was hopped up on A Lot of advil but tell me an anime you want me to watch, and i will give you the hot takes
*cups hands around mouth* SEIDOU TAKIZAWA LOVED AKIRA MADO AND SHE LOVED HIM BACK, AND JUST BECAUSE THEY HAD A RIVALRY SINCE THEIR ACADEMY DAYS DOES NOT MEAN THAT THEY AREN’T ALLOWED TO CARE, APPRECIATE, AND LOVE THE OTHER.
if you follow your initial gut you’ll probz be leaning towards ‘Sense’ where the boys look like summer sunshine and fun, youthful guys all about the rookie lyf and kpops current obsession w/ ~youth~… but if you think about it a bit you realize you actually care about the bougie sophisticated but casual look celebrating beasts past mature style and popularity in “Sensibility.” Then you probz go nuts bc tbh all of them w/ pizza like that makes you want pizza and “highlight” as your bffls, but all of them chilling out in white makes them look like angels and you wanna buy both but yer wallet is hurting and you just want the boys to be be happy and good music in yo ears. SO.
People like this make me sick. Notice how it isn’t a lighthearted joke made by people in the fandom. It’s an actual expression of hatred toward people based only on what makes them happy when that thing is as innocent as a show. This is disgusting. Do you really think you have some sort of right to give these people extra shit just for what they enjoy? Without even knowing them, you’ve written them off entirely. This is so childish. I don’t care if you don’t like how the fandom behaves sometimes, newsflash: that’s ALL fandoms for you. I would defend them even if I weren’t one of them. I’m not into homestuck, but I won’t put up with people giving them hell for enjoying that either. This is so upsetting it needs to stop. recentgooglesearches and everyone else who gives fandoms a hard time. You don’t know these people’s lives and you have no right to give them an extra dosage of hell to death with and brush off, especially for something they enjoy.
It’s funny Okuyasu has bad diarrhea, insomnia, stiff shoulders, two cavities, and athlete’s foot until you realize it isn’t.
There’s no one present to make sure Okuyasu is taking care of himself. There’s no one present in his life to take care of him. It’s pretty neat that the anime shows us the circumstances he endures and how it effects him without telling us.
It’s sadder Okuyasu doesn’t seem to realize this himself.
yknow what trope writers have to stop using already
the one where a het couple gets married and the wife is freaking out and it’s always like:
“husband you dont understand! every little girl dreams of this moment for their entire lives and it needs to go perfectly!”
and the husband is all:
“honey would you relax everything is gonna be fine”
and then he turns to his buddy like:
“can you believe how crazy they get? last night she was crying because the roses were red instead of white.”
not only does it play into the “all women are crazy” stereotype, getting married isn’t every single girl’s life long ambition, and if it is then there’s nothing wrong with wanting that day to go as perfectly as you deserve it to be.
also there’s nothing funny about the person you’re deciding to spend the rest of your life with not giving a rat’s ass about the day that should be just as important to them as it is to you.
bunimalsfiberdolls said: Get the game. It’s not the same
character so you won’t miss any story stuff by skipping the other games
singull said: Andromeda won’t rely much on the
original trilogy other than lore and shit, so you could totally get that
game and not have to worry about missing story things. ;D
*enableenable* The original trilogy is definitely worth playing though!
It’ll make you cry. It’s pretty great.
ilcielodimarzo said: Get the game! And play the original
trilogy too 💕 I have not played them directly but I have looked at the
husband playing and I was fascinated by them! Also yay for reorganising
dolls display,which reminds me that I should have bought another cabinet
instead of another doll 😂
Gah, I’m convinced. X3 Pre-order is happening! Now I know I’ll probably accomplish nothing during my week off.
I have run into enough spoilers for the original trilogy that I’ve got a pretty decent idea what happens, and I did hear that the new game is entirely separate in story. I was mostly just worried I might not appreciate it as much with having missed out on the lore and world-building (universe-building?) from the original games.
I’ll definitely still need to give the original games a try, too. And oh my gosh, @ilcielodimarzo, do I ever feel you on that. D: Every time I save up funds to spend on things for my dolls, I end up slipping and a new doll happens.
