An AU where young Keith, a Filipino-Korean, moves to the USA; on his first day at school, he refuses to talk, partly because he’s not exactly very sociable but mostly because he’s incredibly embarrassed about his English and lack of proficiency in it. O and shiro walks in
TRIPS OVER MY OWN FEET oh my god this was supposed to be black and white but then i wanted to paint but then gave up andCHRIST. my art style changes 600 times during this comic its dISGUSTIGN. THEN AGAIN it was rly rushed i just wanted to get this idea outta my head before school starts.
Of course my first contribution to the mchanzo fandom would be this monstrosity (the original comic was going to be about Mccrees native side of the family teaching him drinking games instead of ball games but then this happened)
Also if ur here for the Mchanzone I’m sorry my shitty oc is on the side there just ignore that
A brief glance at the cartoon version of America makes you think the South is pretty racist. Look at them, with their Confederate flags and voter ID laws! But while you were sleeping, the blue states were up to some pretty racist shit too. It’s just that they’ve got better PR.
For example, one of the biggest and most violent anti-segregation fights in US history didn’t take place in 1950s Mississippi or Alabama, but 1970s Boston. The 70s! In Massachusetts! The land of Kennedys, Afflecks and liberal arts colleges was faced with the desegregation of schools and was like, “yo George Wallace, hold my beer!”
THIS WEEK: To discuss some of the secretly f#&*ed up modern history of the United States, Jack O'Brien and Michael Swaim are joined by the guys from ’The Dollop’: Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds. They discuss the Boston busing riots of the 70s, the comically-liberal blue state with secret ties to the KKK and why we’re about to live through the Enron crisis all over again.
I don’t have much of a heart for snappy author’s notes right now, so I’m just gonna go ahead and let this fic speak for itself as what it is, and what it is is “shameless emotions porn and hurt/comfort”. I’m not apologizing. (I’m sort of apologizing.)
Thanks always to my beta, who puts up with five million “but is it good? are you sure? are you sure?” questions from me every time I send her a fic.
