about: when chris and eva are drunk at a party there’s only one way things can end, yet something is different on the morning after.

Oh, she was mad. She was mad, but most of all, she was hurt. Given the freedom that came with it, she didn’t usually mind that her mother was never home. It had stung at first, when she didn’t really understand that it was the only way to mantain their small family, but then everything inside her had settled, to a point when sometimes she almost felt happy to have the whole house to herself. But this time it had gone too far.

It had been two weeks before when she fell sick. And with sick, she meant not leaving bed for one week straight. The fever had been the worst of it, and it had got bad enough that her friends took turns to skip school and stay with her during the day, and sometimes even take her to the ER, altough both times she had been sent back home with a prescription and orders to stay in bed. And her mother, her mother, hadn’t even cared. Or if she did, she didn’t shown signs of it other than the stupid, useless daily calls that usually the girls answered.

I know it would be a better idea to stay out of the fandom since obviously this show is aimed at kids, and I’m definitely not the target audience, but…

There’s a part of the fan base that really bugs me. 

And it’s the one that, for the last few episodes, was afraid that Chat Noir was getting shoved aside in favor of Ladybug for the hero spotlight. The ones that demanded/are demanding that he get put right beside her for “equal time” to be recognized as part of the team, or even given his own episode or something so he can defeat an akuma on his own. And I know I should just ignore them and watch the show and just enjoy it as it is, but…

It’s really hard not to take it personally.

For this to make sense, you have to understand I come from a different generation. I come from the generation that was first introduced to pokemon on the WB almost twenty years ago. I come from the generation that first saw Cardcaptor Sakura on the eighth episode, because the American based studios were actually targeting the young male audience, so discarded Sakura’s story, and her name in the title, so they could start with Lee as the ‘relatable’ character for the boys.

I’m from the generation whose ONLY fully embraced “girl anime” was Sailor Moon, and whose American female heroes (besides the awesome Powerpuff Girls) were Totally Spies and Kim Possible (influenced by anime anyway). The first was about rich girlfriends from Beverly Hills whose leader was a ditzy blond obsessed with fashion, and the latter about a popular cheerleader saving the world.

I’m from the generation who fell in love with Teen Titans, a ridiculously popular show that had a bunch of teenage kids running around and saving the world while dealing with things from racism and isolation, to horror and tragedy, get canceled because it had a huge female audience base, only to come back as that ridiculous mini-episodic series Teen Titans Go.

I’m from the generation where My Little Pony, a show literally created for little girls, unexpectedly found an audience with older males and no one did a damn thing even with the blatant emergence of pony porn. 

I’m from the generation who fell in love with Avatar: The Last Airbender and the badass ladies of it, only to have the succeeding female and woc Avatar with a wonderfully rich and dramatic story line get shafted by Nickelodeon on multiple accounts and get replaced by the trash that is Sponge Bob.

And I’m part of the generation that is still systematically shoving female characters aside for the sake of male slash fanfiction and fanart.

And for the first time in a very long time, I’m seeing a western AND eastern hero show that has a fun, quirky heroine that gets recognized for her abilities. She’s girly and loves rock and roll, she’s capable, and still has much to learn, she’s strong, and has a wonderfully supportive partner to help her get through the toughest battles.

But the show isn’t good enough because… the boy isn’t “equal” to her?

I can’t even believe what I’m hearing.

He’s already chastised her on multiple accounts. He does distractions, fights, sacrifices and assistance. So what if Ladybug usually has the final say? So what if she comes up with more ideas? So what if she gets more recognition from the public for being a hero?

He doesn’t have to be ‘in the spotlight’ to be a good character. For crying out loud people are still clamoring over Felix even though he’s not in the aired show.

Adrien is fine.

We love him. He’ll get his moments, his spotlight, his arc. He’ll always be a part of the team, and a part of the show. He’s still giving Marinette insight and lessons and the help she needs to carry on the fight. He’s never going to get “shoved aside” or “shoved out” of the show, even if, as shocking as it sounds, the show just might focus on Marinette a little more since, oh I dunno, girls just might be the target audience.

Which, tbh, I feel isn’t the case because the show feels like it’s targeting both boys and girls. What a concept.  

Frankly, I love that the show has a girl as “the leading lady”, both as the story protagonist, and just as the hero. I love that Adrien is nice, and civil to Marinette even though he doesn’t like her romantically, and is all around a decent human being. I like that Chat loves his Lady and trusts her judgement and calls and abilities in fighting enough to lead, and gets on her case when she messes up, but never think any less of her because of it, or her gender. I like that this show normalizes a more capable girl and doesn’t call it into question or politicize it. It just is

As a character, I’m actually more partial to Adrien. I’m a horrible sucker for characters from rough families and backgrounds that still do good in the world. I love his cheesy puns and the shoujo tropes he subverts (that he’s the attractive “cool” guy at school the girl likes, but is ALSO the goofy funny guy always after her that we know usually will never be the romantic interest). I want to see some resolution for his tragic family life, I want to see him have his affections requited, and I want to see him be happy and loved.

But I don’t ever want to see people put him on a pedestal just to be on ‘equal footing’ with Marinette. Because as much as I love him, his ‘time to shine’ should be if the show ever decides to focus on his personal life. Which, truth be told, I worry will never happen to my satisfaction since this is an episodic hero show where the focus is on adventure and beating the bad guys. I hope they do though. If nothing else, then at least have it happen in the second season

I want this show to succeed so much that I watch the latest episodes on youtube, but am sure to record the ones airing here on TV so they can get their ratings. 

So even though I shouldn’t, I can’t help but take these stupid arguments personally. Hearing people whine about Chat Noir getting shafted because people don’t think he gets enough screen time feels like a slap to the face. 

I mean for Pete’s sake, can’t we have at least one show with a female lead without getting flack for it? Wasn’t Mad Max bad enough since it was an actual action movie? Why is it so terrible for a girl to have her own role/show and be bomb in it? Why can’t the guy be supportive and helpful and not thought less of for it? If Kim Possible was a show done today, would people complain about Ron Stoppable being, well, Ron Stoppable?

I just want a girl hero to be a girl hero and not have people complain about it. (Before anyone says anything: yes, arguing that the male lead should take the lead is complaining about the girl being the hero.) It’s petty, and stupid, but it actually ticks me off.

Honestly, I’m just eternally grateful to Thomas Astruc for coming up with the concept for this show in the first place. As much as that factor of the fan base irritates me, I love the dynamic between Ladybug and Chat Noir. I love the little story arcs with all the classmates and other side characters. I love the lessons being put into the show, especially through Marinette/Ladybug, and Adrien/Chat Noir and their behavior for younger children to look up to. I just want to enjoy the show for what it is, and being online and on tumblr just makes me wonder if the only way to do that is to stay off the internet altogether and avoid any and all discussion for it.

I just want people to be glad a show is getting popular for a female lead. A few years ago, it was very likely it wouldn’t even have been approved, much less gotten popular in three countries. It could have been cancelled, or Ladybug could have actually been shoved aside in favor of Chat Noir for the sake of “network ratings”. 

Just take a minute and recognize the significance of this, before you try to complain about a show not being “equal” by your definition. You guys really have no idea how good you have it right now .

Is there something wrong w/ me if i say i have no real ambition? I really can't remember if there was ever a time that i strongly felt the WANT to be something (like profession-wise). Do I feel bad? No. But sometimes I envy others that are so certain of what they want to be. Sorry, your blog is the only outlet I could think of. I haven't really said this to anyone. Forgive me. p.s. yours is the only blog I constantly check whenever I'm on tumblr. i have it bookmarked. <3

It’s okay to know. And it’s okay not to know. It’s just that the people who “know” appear as they might have got their shit together — and it’s only natural because they seem determined and focused and it all works for the sake of self-fulfillment & individual completion of some goal/purpose. It’s fine, you know, they might show much more self-confidence in that particular aspect of their lives. But the thing is, this as well might be “all outer show and inner emptiness” — to know what you want and blindly put your heart into it is not bad at all but so many people get comfortable with that they end up planning their entire existence according to patterns of living which supposedly make them feel content and less insecure toward what is it that they do & yet miss out on tons of other stuff. And that’s because the notion of “certainty” itself never functions on one level only — it often leads to choices of a permanent character which can be proven rotten in future time. Rotten not in the sense of success or happiness but just rotten in the sense of people building carefully their own cages and then losing precious bits of their overall self-awareness in all that. Ambition ain’t bad — it can push you to the edge, it can make you feel motivated but Idk I personally mistrust all certainties even profession wise. There’s so much more to your life than what you’ll be “wanting to do” — things get real when you do get what you want but find yourself incapable of realizing that this is not where it begins and ends, that this is not your only source of positivity and this is not the only thing that can make you aware of your own self-worth. And it’s not. It just allows you to be creative, develop your skills and personal traits (which, don’t get me wrong, is big), at best it does that and it also, occasionally, hides the madness you’re carrying; prevents you from thinking about the big stuff, keeps you down to earth and makes you cherish your options and accept them for what they are. But as I said, even the people who know, at some point, find themselves (okay if they’re intelligent enough and still soul-searching) dealing with feelings of discomfort because in one way or another, they’ve settled. They’ve “found” it, it’s there, it’s filling them up with passion or anxiety but it’s taking up most of their time and they’re somehow not okay with that anymore. Or they are but they just can’t help feeling that they’ve “compromised” in an unhealthy degree. To cut the long story short: those who know are privileged, only they are not, not really. Give yourself time. You might come to know and you might never know but trust this all the way — trust it, whatever it is. You currently don’t know what is it that you want to do. I say trust it. There’s a sort of endlessness when you don’t know. To cowards it’s just chaos and refuse to look at it as “endlessness”; they refuse to see it’s possible that whether that works out or not they’re still growing and it’s fucked up being miserable over that which they cannot currently change. But there’s so much beauty in “not knowing” and I mean that. There’s so many social standards we’re all feeling like living up to but we end up losing the essence, the real essence of having desires which aren’t always concrete or simple. And I’m in this as well (everything wise not merely profession wise) I don’t claim that I never get anxious about it; I seem to shake it off my mind quite a lot but it just makes me feel very disorientated and lost sometimes. I feel like I can do anything but then again I don’t desire anything passionately enough so as to feel committed. I end up thinking that I plainly want to do something that won’t be taking so much time out of my life; something that will just gain me a decent living and leave me be on my own terms. But certainly, it’s different for everyone. All I’m saying is: don’t let it eat you from the inside. Oh and watch this video.
