it's only about the characters

Fanon Lotor be like

i am not even sorry just take this

vld has flaws with character development but every character is well-rounded in the respects that they have a balanced amount of good and bad traits and i feel like fanon forgets that

animation I did about ideas coming to life and things coming out of nothing

I definitely want to clean it up a bit cause i made it in firealpaca but for now here she is… the fruit of my love and labors

/edit yeah it’s mp100

the true beauty and the beast ‘gay moment’

  • “who needs her when you’ve got us?”
  • “it’s never going to happen ladies”
  • “I’m not done with you yet” - “me neither”
  • LeFou looking dreamy and biting his bottom lip when Gaston says “picture it LeFou (…) adorable children running around while my love rubs my tired feet”
  • LeFou’s dreamy look turning into a frown the second Gaston adds ‘but what does Belle say?”
  • the whole Gaston song
  • “LeFou you’re the best. How is it no girl has snatched you up yet?” - “I’ve been told I’m clingy, but I really don’t get it” + the Look
  • the nose boop
  • the dance with Stanley at the end

basically pretty much all the lefou scenes were gay because he’s gay af it wasn’t even subtext it was obvious and subtle at the same time goodbye

A subtle reminder that Rob is the father in real life [for added effect]

the thing about Bakugou is that, in the limits that his personality allows, he’s soft for Kirishima - he calls him by name, listens to him and always answers him, tries to help him out as best as he can, accepts his help when Kirishima offers it, actively works to make him feel better when he’s down, never yells at him unless it’s an answer to Kirishima’s teasing, has no problems in complimenting him and pointing out his strength, he’s soft for Kirishima

he openly considers him a friend and treats him as such, he cares and doesn’t really try to hide it, though his inexperience in showing that sort of feelings does make him come off as awkward now and again 

I guess what I mean to say is it’d be nice if the fandom could remember that, instead of writing him as angry and prickly and downright offensive and uncaring when dealing with what has been recognized by the canon as his best friend and someone he does enjoy the company of over and over again

She deserved better. And I would’ve done anything to give it to her.

Can we stop treating Adrien’s character like he’s a delicate child?

It’s really concerning me how his character is handled, and it’s something I only touched briefly on before but I think this is something that really needs to be addressed, and that’s how this character is written to be far more delicate and breakable than he actually is in canon, and that he’s somehow incapable of doing wrong.

It just seems like lately people are confusing Adrien’s sweet and mellow personality for a docile, shy pushover, and exaggerating insecurities of his that he only ever displayed having in a mostly normal way that teenagers tend to. He looked at Marinette owning at Mechastrike and wished he was as awesome as her, and as silly and over dramatic as that was coming from a boy who’s room is lined with trophies in more than one area, I think everyone at one point has looked at someone else and aspired to be like them, maybe even felt a little inadequate in comparison. It’s perfectly normal. Beyond that, Adrien’s issues always dealt with feeling lonely and frustrated with his controlling father. But all of these issues he takes control of, you only need to look at how he signed himself up for school in order to break out of his dad’s confines and make his own friends.

Then there’s Chat Noir. 

I’m sorry, but no one acts like Chat Noir does and has no self esteem; I’d say he even has it in leaps and bounds, he’d have to to flirt and posture the way he does constantly. I think it goes without saying that being Chat Noir was only ever Adrien’s chance to let loose and act carefree, which is hard when he has to keep a more put-together image up for his very controlling dad. And I would consider his entire run as Chat Noir so far as an act of rebellion, defying all the caution and restrictions that surrounded him for a time. He’s taken his life in his own hands because he was capable of doing so, and none of that reads to me like a character who needs coddling by the fandom or people within the fan artist/fan author’s universe. Comforting the character is one thing, treating him like a delicate flower that needs constant praise, who’s feelings need to be considered above everything else less he breaks is another. 

Which leads me, as ever, to Marinette/Ladybug, and how she’s treated in consequence of Adrien’s babying. 

Marinette/Ladybug is capable of being a jerk to him, according to fandom, and it’s a loved trope. Either Ladybug’s being rude and inconsiderate of Chat Noir or she’s berating herself for not thinking of him first and always. That last bit in particular is something in fanworks I’m increasingly having an issue with. It manifests in different ways, a common way being Chat revealing to Ladybug a little of his home-life to her, causing immense guilt on her part as if there’s anything she could have done about something she previously had no clue about. It puts an unbelievable amount of pressure on her to reveal her identity when she’s not suppose to be doing that, and making her out to be an inconsiderate partner for not ever considering his feelings.

This all comes back to Adrien’s treatment as fandom’s child who needs constant coddling and needs to be put first; being capable of showing disrespect or causing harm in any way is hardly ever considered for him because of that. 

But Copycat exists. 

Fandom keeps missing what a jealous, possessive brat Adrien is capable of being, because this aspect of his personality has been lost in the veil of pure innocence that’s been put over him. I have to ask though, how many forgot he lied to Theo about being in a relationship with Ladybug? And then never owned up to it? Because for all everyone acts like he’s a pure ray of sunshine, particularly one that would never mistreat Ladybug/Marinette and is always considerate of her, that was a slimy thing to do to her. That isn’t to say Adrien is a Grade A jerk because of his actions in that episode, but it does show a far less innocent aspect of his character that’s rarely explored because everyone’s too focused on babying him. 

Ultimately, Adrien is a very strong person, he’d have to be to live in the conditions he does and continue to be as sweet as he is. He rebelled against his dad in big ways, like being a superhero and going to school, and smaller ways, such as shaming his dad the entire episode of Jackady. The insecurities about himself as a person are minor and normal, hardly something that cripples him to the point where anything other than praise/ comforting words would break him, and to continue to treat him like this porcelain doll is a great disservice to his strength of character and forces other characters to walk on eggshells around him or come off as unfairly rude and inconsiderate. 

I know I always say my favourite character is Alix, but the truth is my actual ACTUAL SECRET FAVOURITE CHARACTER has no name, about 0.1 seconds screentime, and is probably long dead

One of the most common things I read about in this fandom is how you shouldn’t put Sansa and Dany against each other because they’re going to be such great friends, just wait and see!! The two queens of Westeros!!! They’re so alike!!!

And I’m sorry, but no.

On the surface both of the characters are very similar. In fact, if I said “she’s been forced into marriage, raped, beaten, and lost almost every single important person to her but came out stronger at the end” you wouldn’t know who I was talking about, because that description does apply to both characters.

Both Sansa and Dany have been forced into marriage(s) against their will; they’ve both been raped by their husbands as well as put into situations where the threat of being raped was very present; they’ve both been beaten and tormented and emotionally manipulated. They’ve both lost so many important friends and family members; experienced more loss than anyone should ever go through.

But what makes them different, why they would never get along; why they would never co-rule or be friends, is how they changed as a result of those experiences and their motivations for continuing on.

HERE IT IS.

THIS is one of the core messages of the series that I connect with really strongly, and I adore that it comes up so early.

In so many other stories someone will die to protect someone else and it’s treated like a great and noble thing - and yes, protecting others is always worthwhile, but if you die in the process you defeat the entire purpose. One of you is still dying, and destroying the other person emotionally in the process.

It’s the kind of message you don’t expect in a story about ninjas who are trained to kill without holding back, and yet this is EXACTLY the story it should be in. Throwing your life away serves a short time goal, but it devalues your life so much in the process - and how does that help the other person, who wanted very much for you to keep on living?

YOU BOTH GOTTA SURVIVE OR IT’S NOT A WORTHWHILE ENDING.
