Hi everyone, I’m Dev! I’m an illustrator/concept artist, I don’t play otome and I never even liked romance - I have no idea how I ended up here but welp, what’s done is done. Hello MM fandom! I’m usually active…ish in monster-centered fandoms, which means I usually fangirl over scaly drooling toothy things rather than 2D boys. Expect both from my blog! I’m a reptile lover, a gamer and a workout junkie. MM is now my playground for practicing group illustrations and slice of life c:
Feel free to send me pms or asks - I’m not the most eloquent English speaker but I love meeting new people!
Magnus’ second outfit has a punk styling with marble-effect black jeans topped with a zebra-patterned long coat that has double chains on the back and a Magnus style sequinned collar and silver buckles. The belt itself is strung with tiny silver teeth. His makeup is dark and his hair is dyed with a splash of red and spiked high.
No offense but I’ll stop being salty about the way this Fandom treats Hunk when he actually gets the love he deserves. The amount of art/merch that is literally lacking and ignoring Hunk is too much. Not to mention most people have stated the reason they don’t like him is because of his weight. I know the show is horrible at showing it, but literally everything else shows that there is so much more to this boy than food jokes and a rock girlfriend. (don’t get me wrong I love shay with every fiber in my being, but she shouldn’t have to be a reason people love Hunk.) I just want him to get the love he deserves and I’ll forever be salty about it until this Fandom actually starts to give him the respect he deserves.
I'm not even saying this to shade Harry and Jeff/FSM because I don't think Harry is this kind of person but like.. I'm unfortunately not shocked this is how they're running with his marketing? The Harry The Illustrious Rock Star vs Those Other 3 Randoms is something that's been set in motion since 2012, and something that's never been stopped. And unfortunately most of this fandom and the general public eat stuff like that up. I hate it with every fibre of my being but like.. I'm not shocked.
Me either…Here’s the deal with me. Harry solo music: HELL FUCKING YEAH GIVE IT TO ME
Solo Harry media after he drops his songs: HELL NOOOOO
We all know how the media is gonna talk about it and I’m already pissed off
AND ITS NOT HARRY’S FAULT let me be clear before some of you come for me
I just wanna wish the Thiam fandom (as well as the TW fandom) a Merry Little Christmas and that you have a wonderful next year! That all the things you want and I’m sure you deserve come true! That people continue to love you and that they never leave you, and that you find brand new friendships.
But above all things, I wish you happiness because you’ve made my days so many times with your writings/fics, fanarts, videos & edits, pictures, and love and you all deserve it.
Psychologically speaking (coming from a psychology student) Rin's reaction isn't too off the charts. Its very likely that his mind repressed a lot of what happened or just shut down when things started playing out since your body/mind will go into protection mode when things get too intense or things become to overwhelming. Its likely that he hasn't actually addressed or dealt with any of it. I could be wrong, since I'm very, very new to the fandom. Pls don't throw rocks at me!
Alright, alright. I don’t mean this to sound rude at all, just gonna explain this (because I also have psychological knowledge).
I’M THROWING ROCKS NOW!!!1!!!1!!1!!11!!
First off, lets take a look at the kind of character Rin is. Unlike Yukio, he’s very emotional. Almost everything he does is built on the basis of how he feels, as exhibited by his behavior in the heat of battle or just everyday situations. For example, let’s look at how he acts with Shiemi at the beginning of the series; he sees Shiemi over-ridden with grief and applies his own emotions to her own, spinning into a frustrated, well-meaning rage. He breaks her flower pots and yells at her in an effort to get her to see that she is wasting away in this garden and that she needs to move on. To me, it almost seems like he’s projecting onto her with his own family issues.
Shiemi deals with her grief by crying and wasting away with a lot of self blame. THAT’S a realistic portrayal of grief, especially in relation to the kind of character she is.
But now, you’re telling me that the hot-headed, ever-emotional Rin Okumura ignoring his father’s death and trying to forget and going into “protection mode” is realistic? For Yukio, yes, that’s very realistic. Rin? HELL NO! Not to mention, Shiemi didn’t watch her grandmother die horrifically, nor did Yukio see Shiro do so. Rin did.
So, let’s place a very emotionally-driven, hotheaded CHILD (because goddammit, Rin is 15, only a little older than me!) in a situation where he watches the man he considers to be his father literally get possessed by Satan (who he very recently found out was his ACTUAL dad and that Satan actually existed in the first place), resulting in said father figure’s fingers getting ripped off in front of him, the flesh of his face and shit literally becoming contorted by heat as blood oozed from every orifice with some crazy eyes going on. Then, make him have to literally sacrifice his humanity and become the thing he has subconsciously feared he was the most (a demon; as shown via subtext in the anime and manga through flashbacks) in order to salvage his father’s corpse and get out of Gehenna Gate.
Now, a couple days later, have someone who’s supposed to help him tell him that they’re there to kill him simply for being what he was, before somehow managing to get out of there alive and on the path to be an exorcist. Also, have said boy realize this entire family has been lying to him his whole life, making him have an identity crisis. And then, ONE WEEK AFTER HIS FATHER’S DEATH, make him go to a new school, have him find out his brother has also been lying to him,and have said brother tell him to die, blame him for their father’s death, before pointing a gun in his face and threatening to kill him.
And then, have him be perfectly functional and ready to go after a hot 30 seconds of sadness.
DOES THAT SEEM MOTHERFUCKING REALISTIC TO YOU?!??!!??!?!??!?!!?
NO IT DOES NOT
AND I AM REALLY MAD JUST THINKING ABOUT THIS.
I’m watching kids right now and they’re being jerk heads, so I’m gonna cut this short. I hope this kind of clears up why I’m so pissed about this right now.
Hi! Re: your Grammys tags, just curious why it would be a problem if Harry won anything? Full disclosure, I'm brand-new to the fandom and joined completely ass-backwards by getting into his solo album like a month ago only and then dove right in because I couldn't not. I know the Grammys are political BS but what else would be bad about a win for him?
I don’t think it would be bad to win ANYTHING. But the BIG categories (Album/Artist/Song/Record of the Year) are a no go. He’d be winning over Kendrick Lamar. He’s also up in the Rock category so against the Foo Fighters and Leonard Cohen (most likely). He’s been VERY promo’d by his label which feels a lot like trying to “buy” Harry a Grammy (I’m not saying agree, but I can see how it looks that way). He took risks for sure (I love HS1) but I don’t think anything he’s doing deserves to win over Kendrick.
Then the other factor is the Grammy’s (and every other part of society) needs to recognize the significant contributions of People of Color. Last year’s win for Adele over Beyonce’s Lemonade showed AGAIN how out of touch Grammy voters are. Lemonade was a missive on the black female experience that resonated FAR beyond just one category of people. But you had (mostly white) Grammy voters saying, “I don’t get it.” That HAS to stop. And I would HATE for this year to be one more lack of acknowledgement with Harry as the face of it.
I also firmly believe that being nominated is a HUGE step for Harry and a huge step for 1D as a whole. They’ve got SO MUCH time. “It’s an honor just to be nominated” is a real sentiment and a good look.
This was actually kinda hard to do because there are quite a few aus i like and i wasn’t sure which one to do.
I have my own such as the Sky And The Forces Of The Multiverse AU, The MST3K Au, the HunchBack Of Notre Dame Au, Bunny Farm Au, The What Was Missing Au….
and of course i have some favorite aus by others, Like The Ship War Au ((I want to make a comic where my own fanbabies randomly show up and awkwardly back out but i’m too lazy to finish it)), all the tomco aus, and i also totally adore the Tom Vs The Forces Of Evil Au..
Maybe i’ll do some of these for bonus images (They’ll prolly look much more detailed then the stuff i posted this week cause i didin’t really go all out for this) :P
In the end i settled on the weirdest au i created (( Which is saying alot)).
Presenting the” Marco, The Interdenominational Babysitter” au
This is an au where Marco is still the same, except he actually babysits Star, Tom, Ponyhead, and for the hell of it, Mina…who are all little kids.
Also Jackie, Janna, Ferguson, Alfonso ,and Oskar all sometimes help him because he’s stuck with four of the most insane magic kids ever to take care of.
Well, that was fun i suppose.
Now it’s time for me to hide back under my rock as the fandom totally forgets i even exist.
see y’all when the bomb hits, cause i’m sure i’ll be be writing lots of theories and critiques on whatever happens, as well as post even more horrible jokes.
Okay picture this the chocobros as a boyband singing big time rush songs (don’t mind me but I was just listening to old songs and boyfriend by btr came on and I couldn’t help but think about the boys😅😅😅)
wow this got buried asf under everything else my bad, SO YEAH, ABOUT HOW THEY ARE BASICALLY A BOY BAND ANYWAY OMG
I kinda picture Prompto as like the lead singer of Yellowcard because idk? Granted I did the same for Zell way back when so I see a pattern for myself, LOL
Ignis… honestly that one line in “I’m Glad You Came” just sticks out to me as “yes this is what he’d sing”:
You look well on me. Not “good”. Or “hot”. But well. Cause proper English doesn’t stop just because he’s singing a fucking pop song, LMAO
With so many MCR jokes that the emo prince has gotten in this fandom, there’s nothing stopping King Noct from shaving his beard and getting into way too much fucking black eyeshadow for his new role as emo rock idol
I can, for whatever reason, only see Gladio as AJ from the Backstreet Boys because if you haven’t noticed, I’m fucking old school and my knowledge of boy bands is very dated LMFAO
SO QUIT PLAYIN GAMEZ WIF HIS HEAARRTT🎶
I’m sorry fam, I’ll see myself out now
I live in LA now, but I’ve only been here for about 2.5 years, 3 if you count the semester I spent here a couple years back. The rest of my life has been spent in New England, mostly Maine.
I love Critical Role, but there’s some stuff that’s confused, baffled, or otherwise made me pause the video and go “wait, what?” during my catch up. Some of these things on the list I understand now, having lived here, but some continue to confuse me. Here’s the full list:
Friends who can’t see each other during the week because of traffic
“clutch” meaning “good” (I think)
Wearing jackets when it’s 65 degrees outside
Nobody getting all that bothered when someone is late because of traffic, consistently, over and over again
“roshambo” (which I’m pretty sure is Rock Paper Scissors?)
Getting dramatic haircuts in preparation for summer heat
Nobody playing tabletop games in a basement (because there are no basements in SoCal)
Travel delays because “it’s raining 0.0”
Work shifts going late into the night
An otherwise perfectly nice man hating on the Patriots
Feel free to add your own in the reblogs. I’m sure international fans are confused by certain comments, for example, I’d love to hear about that.
I just wanted to get off my chest how irrationally happy I got when I stumbled upon that ask regarding your age!^^ Because I'm in my mid-twenties too and sometimes feel like a grandma in my fandoms, and especially Mystic Messenger right now haha. So glad to know that there are others in my age group out there ...
Oh yeah, I’m sure there are a ton of us. Don’t get too hung up on that stuff and just enjoy what you enjoy!! lol. I spent too much of my life hiding what I like because it wasn’t “cool” or I felt odd.
I promise you’re going to find me in my rocking chair at 80 clutching onto my 707 pillow with my phone in my hands, still waiting for that V and Saeran route. >.>
Can there be a fanfic mines fandom? Because now I'm wondering what kind of canary they would need down in the deep seams, and imagining the tunnels shored up with sturdy beams of canon. Veins of ideas threaded through the bedrock (which is the same rock quarried to make writer's block and artist's block). Odd creatures, like plotbunnies, may lurk in the depths.
Hey. You guys are amazing. This deluge of drabble all over my dash is rocking my socks off. If you’re reading it, too, and you enjoy it, take a moment, and like that post, or better yet, reblog that drabble and tell the author in your tags how it made you feel.
All you writers out there, you all rock. You’re all so awesome for putting yourselves out there. All you readers out there, you kick ass, too. Thanks for being there, thanks for taking the time to read.
Also referring to your "size matters" in Gem Culture, Peridot in this episode refers to Steven as an insult, which confuses him. I'm guessing it refers to how since a pebble is like a small rock, how it is insulting to be considered a smaller gem, just thought I'd add that! :)
Personally I think it’s along the lines of “clod”– clods of dirt and pebbles are seen as inferior substances to gems, so I think the insult is about inferiority rather than size.
Saying ‘pebble’ I think makes it clear that she’s referring to stone (rather than gems), because if she called him a “rock” it’d be ambiguous (since both in canon and in fandom the Gems are called ‘rocks’)
However “pebble” definitely does carry implications of being small, so you’re totally entitled to read it that way!
