RFA, V and Saeran with aromantic MC? Im just really in the mood for some platonic fluff.
Nah man, I feel.
Honestly he probably feels like he did something wrong when they’re a bit more distant from him and not in the “you’re just saying that because you don’t like me” way but more in the “i don’t know what I did, but if I hurt your feelings in any way or upset you at all please let me know because I want to make things better” kind of way
He really is perfectly fine with it in fact, it really helps to know that he didn’t do something wrong
He asks a lot of questions, but they come from a place of genuinely wanting to understand and known more as opposed to trying to be rude about it
I mean, this is Yoosung we’re talking about, I can’t see him ever being intentionally rude
She’s fine with it honestly
It wouldn’t surprise me if she’s somewhere on the aro scale herself with how her good route ended, but even if she’s not, she’s perfectly fine with it.
She just likes spending time with them honestly, whatever makes them most comfortable is obviously great
She’s a really sweet, kind of understanding person, where if someone’s being rude to MC, she’s probably just make them their favorite drink and make sure they’re comfy and taken care of before going to have a calm conversation with whoever’d messed with them
This man in unaware that this is actually a thing.
It’s not like he has any sort of problem with it. He’s just, genuinely unaware that it’s even a thing
He’d be interested in learning about it honestly and does a lot of research (okay honestly one of the main ways to tell that he really cares about something is when he researches it on his own as opposed to making Jaehee or someone else do it for him
He gets so excited when he finds out something new and would definitely tell MC even if they already knew, he’s kind of like an excited kid when it comes to showing them what he’s learned
He’s always so flirtatious, but I swear, the moment he figures out they’re aro (and figures out what that means) he drops that entirely until he’s sure MC’s okay with it
He just wants them to be comfortable
If they are okay with him flirting he’ll definitely continue to do, but in a much more subdued way
Insists that they tell him if anything makes them uncomfortable
If anyone dares try and mess with them he’s ready to fight
He actually is familiar with most terms in the LGBT+ community, so he’s like, the main guy here who doesn’t have to go to Wikipedia for an explanation
again, kind of the same as Zen, he’ll stop flirting with them until he’s sure they’re okay with it
Always adds on to the end when he flirts with them
“I wanna marry you at the space station…As a friend.”
“I love you…but like, platonically”
But honestly, he’s super sweet about it
He obviously still cares about Rika despite everything that happened, so I can’t see him looking to MC right away in a romantic way at least
He’s really fine with anything,
He doesn’t care about who they are or are not attracted to in any way (like not in a rude way, at all, he just doesn’t really think it’s any of his business)
That doesn’t have anything to do with who they are as a person and it’s obvious what a great person
He cares so much about everyone in the RFA and they’re definitely included.
He has absolutely no clue what you’re talking about and honestly it doesn’t bother him one bit when he finds out
It doesn’t affect who they are so everything’s fine
He doesn’t really say much when they first bring it up to him, because honestly it’s not like he has anything against it.
He’s probably not going to be comfortable with a relationship for quite some time after everything he’s been through. Not having to think about the whole romantic relationship vs. friendship thing with them when he spends time with them would honestly be really helpful as he got closer to them
A few days later he’d just quietly come over to them and be like, “I don’t know how this whole aromatic thing works, and I don’t want to make you uncomfortable or anything, but we can still have our weekly ice cream dates, right?”
Do I even have to point out how protective he is? They’re probably like, the first person he’s really ever cared about and had care about him in return.
I refuse to believe that Gillian is in a relationship with someone other than David. It's not that I don't like PM - honestly, I do. He may seem a little weird, like a kid you don't wanna play with in the kindergarten but still, I like him. But Gillian has this special bond with David, something she will never have with anyone else. I know they had their ups and downs but I believe he's not only her biggest love, but also her last love.
If I was Gillian, I would want to build sandcastle in the kindergarden with David for the rest of my life :D
when I was a kid, I told my mom that I wanted to be an actress when I grew up. You know what she told me?
She said, “sure, but you’re going to have to do it in China. America won’t hire you if you’re Asian.”
And that was it for that dream.
Of course, that was just a phase - one of many, one I would’ve gotten over anyway. But what she said stuck to me. You’re going to have to act in China, because America doesn’t hire Asians.
And if there’s anything I learned over these years, it’s that she was right. Asian-Americans don’t get to see ourselves on screen. We don’t get to read about our deeds. And we get pissed. We complain, we shout, and people dismiss us because, oh, “the Japanese are okay with Ghost in the Shell”, and “I’ve heard that mainland Chinese are perfectly fine with Iron Fist.” Well, great for them. This isn’t about them.
This is about us. Asian-Americans. Asian-Canadians. Asian-Australians. Asian hyphen something. And the Asians in Asia don’t understand - because they can’t. They’re surrounded by media portrayals of them. They never have to fight for representation because it’s always there. They have no idea what it’s like to live in a country that sees you as other, and then to have to go back to your home country, to have your parents tell you “this is you, this is your culture, your heritage” and you look upon the faces of your family and you see nothing of yourself in them.
Asian-Americans are not the same as Asians who live in Asia. We live in a different culture. Our values, our beliefs, the experiences that shape our lives are separate.
We want to see ourselves in western media because it’s what we grew up with. It’s what surrounds us. Sure, we can watch K-dramas and anime and Chinese/Taiwanese/Japanese/whatever dramas, and a lot of us do, but it’s still not us.
We shouldn’t have to go watch Asian dramas just to see a part of us represented. We shouldn’t have to move to Asia just to be hired.
We deserve to represent, and be represented, as ourselves.
