Alright! I’m clearly still setting this blog up (I’m a slow potato weeps), but UNICORN here! Shameless promo time; if you’d be willing to interact with a canon divergent TOGAMI BYAKUYA from the DANGAN RONPA games, I’d appreciate if you could give this a like / reblog so I can check your blog out! Thank you so much aaa. ♥
Holy Cupcake, guys! Never could I possibly have imagined that I would get anywhere close to 50 followers! To some of my followers and people I follow, I know that might not seem like a lot, but I am genuinely so happy to know that fifty people like what I post (and reblog). I started this blog in February of 2017 to act as a sort of ‘lurker’ account, for lack of better terminology. I was very timid and unsure about putting myself out there. Now here I am with fifty people that like, reblog, and comment on my posts and it just makes me so incredibly happy to see you all everyday. Thank you all so very much for all that you guys do. I love you all! Stay wonderful and have an amazing day!
I’m going to tag my four biggest followers, the people I reblog the most stuff from, my inspirations, and some of my lovely mutuals. Thank you all so much!
since i continue to get asks about this, ill copy and paste some of my reasons why i really dont like grasper from an ask, and why ill never draw it, no matter how many times you ask
1. There are weird parts of the fandom that just insist on shipping Greg with literally any gem, to a point where it seems to become a creepy harem type thing and that makes me super uncomfortable.
2. The way a lot of grasper is presented in fic and art is so neasuea inducing. A lot of it seems to be jasper being unaware of her “assets” (her large tits and ass, usually amplified in fan art) and Greg acting like some harem anime school boy who takes advantage of the fact she’s busty for his own sexual gratification.
3. So many people want to try and ship sapphic gems with men who they have shown either none or negative interest in. Grasper is no exception.
4. The trend of people putting very masculine women with men is overwhelming and honest to god I’m sick to death of it.
5. It’s a ship that’s enduring in the fandom for some reason. I see. So. Much. Of. It. Never on purpose. The more I see of a ship I don’t like, the more I hate it.
6. The things I’ve seen of some of the fans in the past were just… I don’t want to associate with that. I remember talking to someone a while back about how they got harassed by grasper fans for not shipping it.
7. (This is sort of a weaker argument but bear with me)Jasper was p much confirmed a lesbian by amber on twitter and seeing people ship lesbians with men is so gross.
8. Greg and jasper would be WAY better off as just friends, even close friends! But not as a romantic/sexual couple.
I feel as though I barely post any Sansa things on the blog during got season (since season 5 anyway) and I thought it was probably time to state why. I love book!Sansa. She is one of my favourite characters. I love how complex she is and she has great character development.
Having said that, I don’t hate show!Sansa. I hate how she is written.
(yes, there is a difference, hence why I’ll still reblog sets of her in scenes I like)
I saw a meta recently about season 7 (about the conflict in the North) and it summed up my feelings about the way Sansa is written in some scenes in one perfect word: contrived.
A key example of this is the scenes in this season with her and Jon when Jon is holding council. Twice now he has held a public council and show!Sansa has spoken against his decisions. This doesn’t fit at all with her character. Sansa was a lady at three, courtesy is her armour, she knows about image politics (that was amply learned in her time in the south). She would not speak against the King in the North publicly, undermining him, she would do it privately.
I’ve seen people in the tags defending Jon, defending Sansa, arguing over who’s right. It’s bad writing, simple as that. These actions do not make sense, but the writers wanted conflict, so it has to be Sansa speaking out publicly even if that isn’t something she would do, because the conflict is what they need to move the story to where they want it.
They’ve done this so much with show!Sansa. Plot progression based on character actions which are built on a solid foundation of characterisation and logical character development tells a good story. Instead they insert Sansa into these scenes (marrying Ramsay (when she is already married!), hiding the info about the knights of the Vale, being the negative voice in Jon’s councils) when we could have had Sansa in the Vale to begin with, bringing the knights of the Vale to take back the North (perhaps even at the same time as Jon’s assault with the wildlings!), then a natural conflict between her supporters and his, because a choice between a bastard son and a legitimate daughter should come with some consideration (and even more when they know that a legitimate son also lives).
