I don’t ship Jalec because I hate Malec, nor do I feel the need to hate on Malec to justify my love for Jalec.
I don’t even particularly hate it, to be honest. I’m just not feeling it. I mean, I started watching the show because of cute Malec gifsets (I think it was around the time 1x07-ish was airing on tv?), and I’ve said this a thousand times, by the 4th episode I was like ‘’da fuq? Where did all this Jalec gloriousness come from? Why are these two in love? Why is nobody talking about this?’’ And that’s how my Jalec love started, all their backstory and angst and Alec’s unrequited love but also Jace’s heart-eyes-that-I-still-don’t-get made them my otp.
Pretty soon I did start disliking Malec cause back in season 1 Magnus was acting all entitled to Alec and there was that cringeworthy moment with Alec asking Magnus what he wanted in return for helping Izzy and Magnus said ‘’you’’ and like…ugh. But no, I don’t hate them. I think they’ve shaped up to be your run of the mill insta-love, and on that front Clace is worse (Clace makes me cringe, tbqh). And the writing for Jalec itself has been horrid at times. Like with the fact that Alec can feel it when Jace cuts his hand but Alec could be facing a troll and three Balrogs and Jace would be mooning over Clary. But then you get Jace doing everything in his power to reach sleeping beauty and ~bring him to life and…yeah. Shitty writing all around.
If we’re gonna look at the writing I think every shipper can find a gazillion reasons to ship their otp and a gazillion reasons not to. It’s just that kind of thing :P (Which makes me so mad cause I love the actors and characters so much and the show could!be!so!great!).
Therefore, I just happened to love Jalec before Malec even had a chance with me. Even though I started watching the show for Malec in the first place. And right now I’m okay with Malec (’’i’m okay’’ = I tolerate it cause well, they do have a lot of issues - it’s just that everything in this show has issues aka bad writing, so I can’t really base my dislike on actual canon cause actual canon fucks everything up, pretty much), they’ve been kinda okay this season, but it’s still insta love and needs sooo much development, whereas Jalec already HAS all the development in the world and the writers just aren’t doing anything with it - until they remember to re-enact Sleeping Beauty and kill us all, that is.
mm okay ik you may not relate bc you dont rly like ships but god BIGGEST pet peeve is when im reading a fic bout an izuku-centric ship and the author uses baku as a plot device to cause shit like bitch!! baku legit wouldn't care about whatever the hell izuku is doing because believe it or not, he doesn't obsess over everything izuku does!! stop mistreating his character like that!!
well, i can always relate Bakugou being mischaracterized
and yeah, i can see how that would be annoying. Bakugou really wouldn’t give a shit about Izuku finding a love interest or romance or whatever. the only time i can see it ever bothering Bakugou is if
1. the romance was completely distracting Izuku from his training, thus making him noticeably weaker, thus making Izuku less worthy of All Might’s powers, and of being Bakugou’s rival, and completely wasting Bakugou’s time. (how DARE he fucking waste what All Might gave him???? after all that sacrifice, after all the goddamn HELL Deku put him through to keep getting up no matter how much Bakugou pushed him down, now Deku’s gonna WASTE IT ALL ON SOME DUMBASS ROMANCE????)
and 2. if Bakugou was interested in the person Izuku was having a romance with. only he wouldn’t actively do anything, he’s probably just sulk angrily to himself b/c this is just ANOTHER thing Deku is fucking beating him at, just fucking great. He isn’t upset by this at all. nope. not one fucking bit, thank you very fucking much. he says as he goes to train and destroys an entire 20ft wall out of pure explosive anger
plus i kinda just dislike seeing characters being used as a plot device without much care for anything else about their personality/likes/desires/etc
Your shadow follows me all day Making sure that I’m Okay and we’re a million miles away
im so tired and i dished this out as fast as i could because i’ve been wanting to draw it a while. i’ve been seeing pining keith everywhere and i was like WHY NOT STUFF MY AU INTO A PINING KEITH DOODLE and here we are. btw im kinda obsessed with 80′s mullet keith and lance lmfao
I'm writing a story and I could use some help. In the story there are two friends, they're really close almost like brothers. At the end of the story the main character finds out his friend has actually been doing awful things (stalking, threatening him and people he cares about, etc.) How can I give the readers subtle hints that the one friend is obsessive/possessive of the main character And how can I write that the protagonist kind of over looks him or takes him for granted?
Okay! Becmfore i start im obviously gonna tag this one for triggwr warnings: warning for abuse. Both physical and mental. Manipulation. Isolation. And depression! Be careful guys,i dont want to harm ir trigger anyone!
Okay, do all the stuff you just told me they do; the stalking, threatening, and isolating them.but tone it down a little. Make it smaller on the paper,and larger off. It’s not uncommon for abusive traits to slip by unnoticed if you do them them a certain way. If you do these things, but play it off a bit like they are doing it to be nice. Then your character would never know. In my experience, there are a few signs of abuse that if done a certain way, can be disguised as love.
1. Control. Controlling your partners life, and their schedule down to every last detail. All the whens, whys, what’s, where’s and who. Things like planning out their weekly schedule and not letting them be around other people. There is a huge difference between “sweetheart, can you do some grocery shopping tomorrow? We are out of a couple things.” And “honey, I’m gonna have you go to the market down the street tomorrow morning at 9 am. I need you back by 11 no later. I’ve made out a list of everthing you need to get.” There’s also a difference between “I know you had plans today, but I’m not feeling well. Could you stay home with me?” And “I don’t want you to go hangout with them. You don’t need them. Stay here with me. I’ll be so hurt and lonely if you leave.” The second ones don’t have to have controlling or abusive undertones. Unless you make it clear with other abusive like actions. Their are people who like to be precise and punctual and orderly. The difference is the intention, and the build up of everything they do.
2. Isolation. A common thing in abusive relationships is for the abuser to try and isolate their partner so that they have no one to rely on but them. And isolation can be as subtle as things like “I don’t think they’re good for you. They are a bad influence on you, they’ll help you get no where in life.” Or “why are you friends with them? They have never done anything for you and look at everything you do for them.” Making the other people in their lives seem like the villains. And usually leaving the victim with no one but their abuser. Making it harder to see the relationship clearly and hard to break away.
3. Guilttrips. “I don’t know what I’d do if you ever left me. I’d probably die without you.” This is a big one. Guilt tripping someone into staying with you, making them fear what could possibly happen if they left you. This can be used really subtly as ‘what would I do without you?’ Can be dropped casually and often.
4. Need to know and often pushing the limits for that knowledge. Pushing someone out of their comfort zone just for them to admit something is a huge no-no.
5. Demanding. No longer asking for things. But expecting them and demanding them. A form of control. Demanding someone do something,demanding their attention, demanding their presence repeatedly and without the others consent or care can definitely be abusive.
Now, the tumblr-esque thing is to make any character from any fandom something on the homosexual spectrum. Dont get me wrong, I find nothing wrong with it, Imma big old gay. But honestly I dont think ALL the brothers are gay.
SIDE NOTE: IF YOUR SEXUALITY ISNT EXPRESSED HERE THAT DOESNT MEAN I DONT SUPPORT YOU. ALSO IM NOT AN SEXUALITY EXPERT AND STILL STRUGGLE WITH WHAT I WANT TO LABEL MYSELF SO I MIGHT TOTALLY EXPRESS SOMETHING ABOUT A SEXUALITY THAT IS INCORRECT THIS IS NOT PURPOSEFUL. YOU MAY ENLIGHTEN ME POLITELY IF THIS HAPPENS.

what’s one thing you wish you had the time for but don’t?
Haircare. Learning how to groom and style your hair is super important in most Native American families, and mine is no exception. My grandma always made sure I was washing/conditioning correctly and my father sat down to brush my hair 100 strokes EVERY NIGHT, so for most of my life my hair has been very long and very healthy. Of course… when I turned 16 I went through my rebellious “cut my hair short becuase im #edgy” phase and now that im in college I dont have the time/money to take care of my hair the way it should be, but I’m really hoping I will get back into the ritual of it all when Im a bit older!
what’s your favorite type of tea?
Im team hot cocoa thanks lol
dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, or neither?
candles or christmas lights?
I have sting lights EVERYWHERE around my bedroom so christmas lights all the way.
you’re on a ten hour flight. what book do you bring?
hhmmmmm, I like honesty above all. When people start going behind my back/telling lies/playing games I drop them so fast lol.
what movie do you watch when you’re sick?
Howl’s Moving Castle <3
what do you love about yourself the most?
I’m good at making others feel comfortable/welcomed! I’ve always been an empathetic person, and I like to know everyone around me is being taken care of, which is probably why so many people jokingly call me “mom” lol.
what kind of a tagger are you on tumblr (no tags, tags for organization, uses tags to scream, etc.)?
I have a few specific tags I use for finding certain posts, but I usually dont tag ships or what show/movie/video game a post is from. Occasional yelling if im re blogging a gift or something by a friend.
what book series were you obsessed with in middle school?
Hey I wanted to tell you that Im SO GLAD youre drawing so much Relativity Falls in the past time! That AU is my absoulute favourite but sadly it doesnt have so much fanart like other AUs... I have tons of headcanons! Do you have some?
inheritingthank you!! makes me happy seeing people enjoying it. it’s funny that relativity falls wasn’t one of my favorites but look at me now i’ve been obsessing about it for like a year. and share them! i crave relativity falls…
BOI IF I HAVE HEADCANONS. i have so much stuff but im always too lazy to write it down. i dont post as near as i wanted about this au. i wish i could draw it all. ok grab a drink and some snacks this gonna be long.
I have this weird step above friendship that i sometimes put people into and i love them but not romantically, just a lot.
And i also have the more obsessive love with the person i feel im dependent on at the time… But that’s different too.
But i dont think I’ve ever loved anyone romantically. I know I’ve definitely pretended to….
Like i don’t want to date or anything, because what can a date give me that i good friend couldn’t…
And i think about getting married, but honestly it’s more fueled by the idea of spiting my parents and getting to wear a nice dress.
In reality, i just want to cohabitate with a bunch of friends (i dont care if they are couples or anything) and get some pets, and help to foster kids that i meet through work and just all generally love and support each other.
Unnamed person: I dont care what you do, ship your ship, write your stupid fics and draw your comics, Im not policing...but it better not be adultery or disrespect their families or spouses. Write what you want except these things that upset me but remember Im not policing. Don't you dare draw Bob rejecting princess goddess queen daughter of God himself its ooc. By the way I'm not obsessed with your ship ok. Also dont all tell me what I cant and can do stop policing me you obsessed losers.
“i’m not policing anyone but if fanart doesn’t portray orih*me exactly how i want to then i’ll start shit with the artist and act like a whiny brat!!!! but i’m not policing!!!1!”
me: i am too clingy and obsessive and i latch onto people too soon and im creepy?
me: also i dont respond to messages from people i care about and i make no effort to maintain communication with my friends
Would I let Sidney Pierce ruin my life? Yes. Would I let her **** me? Absolutely. Am I fighting the building obsession to this character? You bet. Am I gonna allow this to make me change my icon to her? No, I wanna look chill and I’m pretending I’m not gonna be rewatching her scenes multiple times.
Falsettos/book of Mormon au thing kinda where Marvin is reincarnated as self obsessed Mormon posterboy Kevin Price and Whizzer is reincarnated as bubbly district leader Connor McKinley ,
Fuck I need to draw that.
But. Does that mean. A Whizzer Brown that tries to turn it off like Connor does or is it an openly gay ‘I dont care what you think of me’ Whizboy.
Like, I totally get the image of Marvin as Price but give me more info on Whizzer please Im actually curious
