4.10.2016 • It was just another school afternoon, my friends and I were laughing at stupid jokes together and I just thought how lucky I am to have these people and to be able to appreciate the small moments like this one.
listen pharmercy alone is fine, the entire issue is the way people project racist stereotypes and undertones onto it. that is the whole problem no one is trying to say that you’re bad for liking phamercy unless you fully support these tropes knowing what they are.
everyone speaking out about this to inform you guys are not attacking pharmercy because it’s an interracial lesbian relationship (most of them like sympharah or phazar so it should be clear that’s not the issue) but because there are artists that depict their relationship in a racist manner. it’s okay to like pharmercy, but please realize there are people who like it and draw it in a way that can be extremely offensive, insensitive, and racist. most of the people who are speaking out against it are people it directly effects so please listen to them rather than brush off what they say because things like this shouldn’t be silenced even if it seems small to you. the last thing you want to do is contribute to this by blindly believing that just because pharmercy is a wlw ship that is popular that there can’t be things people shove onto it (some of which are mainstream) that are racist.
if you’re still worried or frustrated by the situation please make something positive out of it and not support and/or call out artists who draw pharah light skinned, possessed pharmercy and/or pharah drawn to be mercy’s servant, as an animal mercy needs to tame, label their fanart things like “mocha lotte” to describe it, dress pharah up in native american outfits, or in general fanart that seems to come across as pharah being an afterthought or literally praising the ground mercy walks on.
if you have any questions or are just confused to what the racist aspects everyone has been talking about are, please feel free to ask me or anyone else who has been trying to bring it into light.
Is there any kind of masterpost about the different species in the wingedau?
nope! But now there is :D
Here we gooooo:
First off, the winged au is set on a VERY small earth-like planet. Think of Avatar’s Pandora but less breathtaking lol.
The species are immortal and cannot reproduce, So it’s just them living on this tiny planet.
Every species has a soulmate that they are soul-bond to until the end. Links symbolize that bond, which can vary among species.
ALL species are humanoid.
Crows have large, strong black wings that emit an aura which is color specific to every crow(ex. hinata: orange, Kageyama: blue, etc.). Their clothes consist of normal shirts and shorts or robes that are either black or white.The clothes are able to “melt” through the wings when they’re removed. They never rip.
Link: The wings of a crow can either burn (when fighting) or heal (when snuggled up) those of their destined soulmate. When their soulmate dies, the wings of the living soulmate turn white.
Cats are quick and flexibe shapeshifters that are able to freely transform into their cat form. As humans, They have cat ears, tails, claws and fangs. Unlike other species, cats are the only ones without a specific dresscode. Because they live closer to the snakes than other species, They other get into turf wars with them.
Link: Cats wear special collars that emit a red, laser-like beam which connects to the collar of their soulmate when they’re next to each other, but becomes invisible when they’re far away. Touching the beam however, will cause it to appear for a brief moment as well. Cats often use this strategy to find their lost soulmates.
Owls have wings like the crows, but theirs have different patterns and colors. They also have feathers growing off parts of their skin. They don’t wear shirts either. Just shorts. Owls are the wisest species and are able to analyse any species and find out whose soulmate is with who just by a glimpse.
Link: Nobody really knows what kind of link owls create. Maybe they’re good at hiding it? ;)
Aliens (Aoba Josai)
Aliens *cough*humans*cough* are from another planet *cough*earth*cough* stranded on this one and lived on as a species, adapting to it’s laws. Aliens have armor-like suits and wield weapons that only they can operate.
Link: As their link, aliens have nothing more than a mere friendship bracelet. That’s it.
The strongest species that are basically just bigger, reverse-colored versions of crows. They all wear white. The healing and burning method also applies to them.
Link: Same as crows^ Also the wings turn black instead of white on the death part.
Most despised species. Shapeshifters like the cats. Snakes have the ability to mind control other species into doing their dirty work. (all except aliens). They all wear poison-green hooded coats in their human forms. The hoods have the scales of their snake-form as well.
Link: Eyes turn red whenever they look at eachother
I wrote this late at night so if it’s too vague and you still have questions, don’t be afraid to shoot an ask! .I will later add the answer in this post if need be!
The sheer silence and the piano themed music as we caught the first glimpse of Aaron and Robert laid trapped in the car as the water level rose - it was so haunting and sent shivers down my spine.
Robert’s alarmed tone of voice as he awoke and realised where he was - his instant reaction was to yelp after Aaron and I swear my heart got tore apart there and then.
The genuine intense crying fear coursing though Aaron’s veins as he screamed he was stuck with the voice of a frightened, injured little boy - his eyes on his other half the whole time.
Robert’s face as he watched his attempts fail and all the hope drain from his lover’s face.
The soothing voice Robert holds only for Aaron to calm him down, reassure him, stop him panicking and make him feel safe returning once again - he was trying his best to erase that horror and pain with every damn bone in his body.
Aaron telling him he loves Robert, twice because in that moment he thought he was going to die and he needed him to hear those three words that he hasn’t said enough.
Aaron remaining such a selfless angel throughout his entire traumatic ordeal - putting Robert first as he demands he go before he loses consciousness, and even thinking of Lachlan despite his disgusting behaviour and initial rage.
Robert not giving up, him being determined to stay whilst Aaron goes the complete opposite “I’m not leaving you” there was no way Robert was ever leaving even if that meant he was going under with him THE EXTENT OF THEIR LOVE IS BEYOND SOULMATE LEVEL!
THAT UNDERWATER KISS, he gave him oxygen to survive and needed to savour that moment - just let that sink in (soz about the insensitive pun).
Robert diving out the water with Aaron in his arms, desperate and frantic but with only one thought on his mind - to save Aaron’s life.
Vadam beside them, Adam following into and out of the water, my four faves together in heart-wrenching, terrifying circumstances but together none the less and Adam breaking down in the ambulance begging his best friend to never leave him - I don’t think I’ve ever cried so much.
Robert jumping right back in the water to go get Lachlan despite the bad blood between the pair - don’t you DARE tell me that man doesn’t have a heart.
Robert barely being out of the water as he clocked Lachlan - his help turning to threatening fury as he protected the man laying on a stretcher, the man he can’t be without.
Robert holding back the tears in the car with Vic as he demands he goes straight to the hospital to see Aaron again - to know he’s alive, to stay with him every step of the way.
The fact not long ago Aaron thought he had nothing to live for and even wished death upon himself but fast forward to his current state of mind, where he’s happy and in love, and he’s never been so scared to die - the tables have turned because the one man who changed everything was sat beside him.
