please be a good character

for @thenewbard who loves the hell out of this rarepair

guess my favourite character dynamic

hey i’ve seen a bunch of j*hanna//the/mad on my dash lately and here’s a reminder she ships sh//eith (a ~25yo and a 16yo) and draws g/nderbends (i’m sure there’s more but that’s all i can remember off the top of my head)

13 reasons why is bad: a summary

- romanticises mental illness 
- incredibly triggering
- no compelling story
- boring main character
- 9000 bike riding scenes honestly what the hell
- main girl wrecks main guys life for no apparent reason
- feels like a john green book, and not in a good way
- just, Yikes

the reason i want Lance to be the black paladin is because it would be so good for him, and not JUST Lance, but the rest of the team too. say what you want about Allura being a better candidate, and while it would be logical to have her lead, she already has her leader traits fleshed out. but something she and the rest of the team really need to learn, is supporting each other.

we all know Lance is really insecure about himself, and suddenly being thrusted into the role of a leader would be very overwhelming for him. he will need support from his teammates to help him get through this and have him learn to believe in himself. this means the team will have no choice but to learn to support Lance and accept him as a leader figure. they will have no choice but to start taking him seriously and not brushing him off. they will have to learn to respect him more than the teammate that cracks jokes and flirts around with aliens. they will have to learn to respect his choices and follow his lead. everyone will have character development if Lance becomes the black paladin. he is the best option, he can make a wonderful leader if people would give him a chance and the time to develop.

[Ah it has been a long time again since I was able to draw, my skills have gotten out of practice, i think. I hope I will be able to work on it more and improve a little. Ah but until I am able to, please enjoy this simple drawing! It is inspired by the scene in Road to Boruto where Sasuke helps Sakura home after she injures her back sparring with Sarada and Boruto. Ah it was a cute moment, right? I am happy they had this moment in the new DLC. Ah anyway, please have a good day/evening and take care! ー( ´ ▽ ` )ノ ]

My first ever OC was called Rogue, and she looked exactly like me but better and was badass and wore leather jackets and I wrote her into (really bad) yugioh fic when I was like 11 and I had the best time ever posting my shitty stories on ff.n

And no one ever sent me hate or flames, I got lovely reviews asking for more and telling me that they liked my story and honestly, I wouldn’t have got so involved in fic without the support of all these random strangers on the internet.

OCs and self inserts are fun. Alternate universes are fun. Writing a fic where you save the day and your favourite character loves you is fun. I still have an OC who obnoxiously reflects myself and maybe I know more now to develop them into a good character, but it’s FUN.

Please don’t ever be nasty to people who are having fun and hurting no one. There’s nothing wrong with posting stories online, no matter your skill level or execution.

Me: *thinks about the in the heights movie and all of the hype I’m giving it despite the fact that it most likely won’t feature any of the cast members that caused me to fall in love with such a production, the fact that it’s still a few years away so I have no idea if I’d still even like in the heights by the time it comes around, the ridiculously high standards I have for the cast especially in casting an all poc cast being my number one want (something Hollywood’s been notorious in withholding), the fear of adding foreign plot points or even worse SUBTRACTING important plot points, the fear of somehow removing women from the narrative, the fear of watering down such a beautiful story in general*

Me: *cries*
