@The makers of the American ‘Shame’

For me to even consider watching your show:

  • Do solid research on the actual issues teenagers are facing right now, outside of their love life dramas and dilemmas.
  • Write well-rounded characters that grow and develop over the seasons.
  • Write diverse characters with equal importance and mettle.
  • Make characters call each other out on shit. Especially if it is the main character.
  • Don’t, DON’T, DO NOT cause unnecessary drama just for the shock value of it all. Deal with issues practically and positively.
  • Cast actual teenagers, with their real skin and real hair and real body types, with just as much talent as the original cast.

Let’s see how you fare.

i’ve been trying to post a drawing every day so…here’s some lineless practice with allura holding… molten steel? a star? you decide.

Sorry for not being productive lately, I’ve been terribly ill these last couple days. 

That pic of chibi Natsu with long hair did me in, thus giving me enough energy to doodle this. Long hair for eeeeevvvvverrrrrrrry oooooone. My other ships have also been started with all the hairs, hopefully I will get them up shortly.
