So this had to happen sooner or later(rant)

I’m going to rant about this because simply I just find it really frustrating and people are really disconsiderate when it comes to content creators, again I don’t wanna be rude or anything but it’s something that I do want people to consider.

 It’s really discouraging when people demand an artist for this, when I’m trying to make art for a living, when I put time and effort in something that I love and bring content for you guys to enjoy, when I try to make something different.

And here is the thing, becoming known by just fanart ALONE is an absolute nightmare already, now imagine doing this with YOUR original content.

 The only way one can get more promotion is by…well, promoting this said original content in your fanart page, or in this case, my askblog. And it baffles me how it gets to the point calling just a simple reblog of my original content SPAM, (funny, seeing you get ADC updates almost everyday and I interact with all of you with unrelated questions and I reblog memes and fanart, is that spam too then?)   Yes, this IS drunk Chara, but it is also my blog and my art, if anything, I think it’s super fair to encourage my followers from this blog to support my comic and more projects. 

All in all, I’m glad the comment was overall polite, but I have to express my dissagreement with this and how this is so frustrating to read, idk I guess I’m just frustrated in general.

Just, please considerate this, and don’t kill art. 

People who are poo-pooing Unstable need to realize that some people play Magic…to have fun????? And that if you argue that the cards aren’t worth anything…so are most of the bulk you get in limited??? Like card value is a social construct…??? So stop yucking people’s yum…and stop complaining when the people who think your mean opinion is mean defend a set they…like????

STOP Assuming! STOP being delusional.

Okay soooo I’m highly annoyed right now lmao.

If you want to ship members from a group, go ahead, but do NOT sit here and make it a fact that “they’re gay” or “they’re bisexual”. Yes it goes for being straight as well since we will never know for sure but I’m mainly talking about people thinking idols are gay.

There’s a difference between thinking that it’s a POSSIBILITY of them being gay and being DELUSIONAL and automatically thinking that they’re gay because of certain ways they touch the other members, what they say, how they say it and etc.

Let me remind you, In South Korea, skinship between friendships is NORMAL. You can’t just automatically think that an idol is gay just because they’re really comfortable with touching eachother. Let me say it again,,,Skinship in South Korea is NORMAL. Just because of the way they touch eachother does NOT mean that they’re gay. Just because of the way they dress does NOT mean they’re gay. For example; just because Taehyung was walking and dancing well in heels does NOT make him gay. I’m a female and I can barely walk in sandals and there is a lot of gay guys that wouldn’t even be able to walk properly in heels so,,

It is NOT okay for you to stereotype how gay people look, how they act, how they talk and what they’re interested in. That’s why it’s become normalized in the western to think that (for example) guys hugging is gay, that guys crying is gay, that guys wearing pink and makeup is gay. If you are NOT attracted to the same gender, NOTHING you do is gay.

At the end of the day, do NOT assume anybody’s sexuality. There should be no room for discussing it. Keep it to yourself, don’t throw it down other’s throats. Don’t make it spread because you don’t know if it could hurt the idol or not. And being gay is not something that Koreans are opened to, it’s still an issue with coming out as gay and etc. so topics like this is sensitive for idols and Koreans.

Like why is everybody so concerned with people’s sexuality?? You don’t need to know unless you want to be romantically involved with them. And yes, you might want to be romantically involved with an idol but that’s different because you both don’t know eachother; you only know OF them, you do NOT know them and they don’t know you at all so there is no possibility of even having the chance of ending up with an idol unless something really unexpected happens which I doubt.

But, Have fun shipping. Do NOT be delusional with it.

It’s not a ship (to me)

I never really shipped them. RPF was never really my thing before I came to believe that the J’s were a couple. I was very satisfied with reading a lot of wincest (and other pairings) that I never gave much thought to shipping J2 as well - the RPF world was alien to me and I generally don’t care to get to “know” the people behind the scenes.

So how on Earth did I end up here?

Long story short, I was lured into Tumblr by finding my favourite writers had accounts here and my appetite for wincest was insatiable. Perhaps there would be more of that here? I truly didn’t expect to care about J2 as people, but seeing them on my dashboard daily quickly convinced me of their extraordinary qualities and I came to hold them in high regard. I still didn’t ship them, though.

A seed of doubt grew in my mind upon seeing my first tinhat posts. Not long after, I had finished reading Speak The Truth and spent a couple of days dazed and heartbroken. Not for the reasons you’d think, though! I was crushed by empathy, feeling awful for them for having to hide this. For having to pretend they’re something that they’re not. So what do I do? Do I keep my mouth shut and look for some more wincest, or do I talk about my suddenly abundant J2 feelings?

I couldn’t bury my head in the sand and pretend I didn’t know. It would have felt like betrayal to these men I cared for so intensely. Their story deserved to be seen and appreciated for what it is - a beautiful tale of when a boy meets another boy and they fall in love. I was, and still am, smitten by what they have and shocked by what they’ve gone through.

But no, I don’t really ship them. I read the fanfiction, I love the manips and the fan art, but since shipping is endorsing a fictional relationship or a relationship between fictional characters, I can’t use that word. I ship wincest, but I support Jared and Jensen. I cannot reduce what they have into something I read about for mere fun.

There are times when my heart aches for them and my chest burns with fury towards the enviroment that pushed them into the closet. There are times when I’m so full of venom that I don’t trust myself to write a single sentence. There are times when I’m so worried that I’m barely holding back some very real tears for these very real people struggling in an unimaginable situation.

I’m not here for fun, even though I very often have some. I’m here to support them unconditially, even if they never came to know about it. I’m here because I see them and accept them for who they are. I love them even when it hurts me because I realise they have to make some tough choices in a situation I can’t even imagine.

So if you ship them, consider yourself lucky. I never did and never will.

Listen… For the life of me I cannot watch fights in anime or read them in manga.

I cannot do it. I do not have the attention span. I will die. I will flop over and die from boredom. I could love the characters more than life itself but if I try to read a drawn-out fight my soul will transcend this plane before I’m even half-way through.

Not all manga/anime are as bad as others. BNHA and One Punch Man, for example, finish up their fights in a semi-timely manner, and for this reason I can make it through them. But if we’re going with most shounen anime/manga; I’m dead. I’m fucking dead. My hell would just be me being forced to watch all the One Piece fights back to back for eternity.

And like, these drawn out fights don’t even make sense! My writer-brain tells me that fights are supposed to be written as fast-paced, mostly physical, only slightly technical, and shouldn’t be worrying about diving deep into a character’s thoughts. Fights are supposed to be shallow.

Here’s why: your brain cannot fucking do the shit these protagonists do. It can’t. The brain is marvelous and complex and I love her but by god she cannot be trying to help you survive a fight and be pumping you full of adrenaline AND be thinking about your extensive abandonment issues at the same time. She can’t do it. The brain is just gonna focus on the issue at hand, i.e. staying the fuck alive, and save the rest for later, when you’re not about to die.

Can you imagine trying to fight an anime protagonist in real life? They’d die!! You’d punch them and then they’d just step back and stand there with a blank look on their face while they had some flashback!!! Bitch would be dead in like, 30 seconds.

Why can’t they just fight hard, get the job done, then go home, take a bath, stare at the wall while eating ramen, and then go ‘oh, fuck, my childhood was really messed up. I should work on that’ like the rest of us

I’m tired of these celebrities saying offensive stuff and delivering these meaningless apologies. First of all, you don’t have to write a long-ass essay explaining why you’re the real victim and everyone else is over reacting. You don’t get to explain why what you did was not offensive and come up with BS excuses like “oh I did musical theater” or “oh I was on the crappiest seasons of Glee”. Here’s what you do:

1. Admit what you did was wrong. Don’t turn yourself into the victim. Don’t make the fans feel sorry for you. You’re supposed to say sorry to us.
2. APOLOGIZE (and don’t give me that “I’m sorry you were offended” BS because that’s not an apology at all, that tells us that you think we’re overreacting)
3. EDUCATE YOURSELF!!! Grow as a person. Show us that you learned from your past. You need to earn our respect back. Show us that you’re worthy of our respect.

Unpopular opinion rant time

Honestly? I have to say I’m disappointed with Magnus in this episode.

Let’s just get something else of the way first.

I believe that Alec was stuck in an impossible situation where there was no good choice to make. Should Magnus be told about the Sword? Probably. Magnus can keep a secret, so Alec could have confined in him.

But would it be fair to put Magnus in a situation where he would have to lie to his own people? No. Not with everything else that Magnus had to deal with. So I can understand why Alec wanted to spare him from that.

Do I think Alec can do no wrong? Absolutely not. He’s fumbling and screwing up more often than not, but that’s understandable. It’s his first relationship - and a very serious one too. He’s trying and learning and he’s only 20-something years old. People are allowed to fuck up, especially when they are that young.

And he’s not fucking up as the Head of the Institute. He’s thrown into a position of power in the middle of the brewing war and he has to juggle the responsibility of being in charge and not letting his heart and his mind clash. I sure as heck didn’t have to handle that kind of burden when I was twenty.

And let’s not forget that he needs to keep himself in mind too. Alec is used to giving and not getting much in return. A couple episodes ago he told Magnus that he could be de-runed for keeping the fact that Luke attacked Valentine away from the Clave. What would happen to him of they suspected that he leaked crucial information to the Downworld?

The position of Head is not chosen by election. It’s not democratic, where the will of the people is the law. The Clave is the law. They can remove Alec from power faster than Magnus can snap his fingers. Even if you disregard Alec’s personal ambitions (which you shouldn’t, he’s allowed to have a career and ambitions and not sacrifice his own dreams for everyone else) and insist that getting removed from power is a price he could pay for not lying to Magnus - what good would that have done? He’s the only Head in a long while who actually gives a shit about Downworlders, who invited them into the Institute to talk and work with them. He’s the one who can make a real difference, if only he has enough time.

And I feel like Magnus doesn’t remember any of that. He’s stuck in a limbo of PTSD after the torture - which is understandable and so very human. But I feel like it’s a really poor writing at this point. Magnus doesn’t act like a hundreds years old warlock, he’s acting like a teenager, lashing out and being illogical. He’s scared and he’s not thinking clearly, letting his emotions rule over his head.

And I get it. I might not like it, but I get it.

But getting personal and comparing Alec to his family was unfair. Who exactly is he comparing him to? His cheating father? His prejudiced mother? Both of them, the ex-members of the Circle who murdered Downworlders? And what was that comparison based on, on the fact that Alec hid one important information from him, the one that would make someone unhappy no matter what he chose to do?

Magnus is allowed to be angry or disappointed by Alec, it’s his right, after everything he has been through lately. But getting this personal and attacking the most vulnerable point of Alec (his low self esteem and the feelings that he’s failing everyone) is just a fucking low blow.

I don’t take world requests

I’ve said on a number of occasions that I don’t take requests, the last time two days ago, and yesterday I got another similar message. I don’t expect people to read through my whole blog, you can always ask me anything, suggestions are welcome and I truly appreciate the interest in my creations. But when it comes to world requests I feel like many people don’t understand how much time and effort it takes to create a world: it’s literally months, sometimes even years. This is not my job, I do it for fun. Plus I have little time for simming, so please understand that if I’m going to use my free time on such time-consuming projects, it’s going to be something I’m personally interested in. If you have followed me for some time you’d know I’ve been working on the same world for more than two years, and it’s not even finished. I’m not going to stop my projects to respond to requests of this kind: “Can you create this city, with this and that… it would be great!“; and I will neither do full revamps of my previous worlds because they don’t 100% fit someone’s taste. 

I’m not talking about all the requests I’ve received, only about the thoughtless ones that sound like ordering a pizza. They are not very frequent, but still, it makes me feel like you think that, we creators, owe services to you. This is not how things work.

I just want the people who have sent me such world requests to understand the magnitude of what they’re asking for and why I always say no. That’s it.

ACC Rant

(Feel free to ignore this.)

Okay I just-

I need to rant. I was watching Advent Children (Complete) again today and I just-

I love Tifa. I do. I really do. But dear god this is not okay.

I get it, I really do. Both of the kids are gone, kidnapped by what are basically miniature-Sephiroths, she’s scared and frustrated and feels helpless. Cloud has been constantly coming and going for two years now, and she’s looking for stability that isn’t there. She’s taking out her frustration and fear of the situation on the first person there who comes into conflict with her. But I just-

That scene. I hate that scene so much. Because while I understand where Tifa is coming from, she has absolutely no idea what she’s talking about.

I’m sure that everyone (minus Vincent and Nanaki, probably) expected for him to be okay after meteor. Tifa thought that he’d be there and be stable, be okay and around. After all, Sephiroth is gone, ShinRa is gone, the WRO is up and running and getting everyone electricity again. Cid is providing transportation, and Barrett is providing fuel. Everything’s okay now, right? Why should Cloud not be okay?

No stereotypes are “positive stereotypes”.

I know y'all just looove to say “Oh, but we’re saying asians are SMARTER and that’s GOOD! We’re complimenting them,” or “We’re saying women are better at cooking then men! we’re complimenting women!”

You’re not. Even “"positive”“ stereotypes put pressure on people to fit into them.

When an Asian isn’t good at math, they are ridiculed so much more than a white person who isn’t good at math, because they are expected to be better at it than other races. They are pressured to do better, because of that stereotype.

When a woman isn’t good at cooking, she is ridiculed and even deemed unmarriable. But when a man isn’t? It isn’t seen as a big deal, because men aren’t expected to be good at cooking. Why? Because their wives/mothers will always be there to do it for them, of course!

Stop forcing people into stereotypes. They are harmful, no matter what you think.

so, to be blunt, the clique sucks. not all of you, no, but a majority of the clique sucks. a lot of us lack respect, not only for tyler and josh, but for other artists, bands, and their fanbase, such as melanie martinez and the crybabies. (the melanie hate was very very strong on the clique amino app)

i know i’m not being any better than they are now, by ranting about all this, but i NEED to get it off my chest.

let’s start off with the whole fake fan thing. there is no such thing as a ‘fake fan’! only NEW fans! if you meet someone who only knows the radio hits, introduce them to more songs! back when i first got into tøp, i bought a blurryface shirt with lane boy lyrics on it, despite only listening to the song a few times and i hadn’t memorized EVERY word. i wore it to church one night and a clique member ran up to me and busted out rapping the whole song and i got pretty freaked out! i told her that i’d only listened to the song maybe three times and she rolled her eyes, called me a fake fan, and left me alone with my little emo eyeliner and my little emo self. it hurt me, because she was degrading me in the fanbase for not knowing all the words to lane boy.

next let’s talk about faking suicide. that’s OBVIOUSLY not okay. suicide is a very, very serious thing that shouldn’t be joked about. i see it happen within the clique all the time, both real suicides and fake, and both hurt me very badly. but in different ways. do you realize how many people you’re hurting by faking your own death, all for attention? tyler isn’t going to write a song about you, you know, because you “died”.

now the address leaking, ah, the address leaking. that’s tyler and jenna’s personal life and their privacy. they had JUST moved into this new house! they must have felt so unsafe in their own home, which is supposed to be a place of comfort and protection from all you crazy, rabid fans trying to rip his clothes and steal his shoes. how safe would you feel if someone leaked your address online for the whole world to see?

next we have the crashed wedding. that whole thing was so, so disrespectful. that was josh’s friend’s wedding. if you were famous, and went to your friend’s big special day, and a fan decided to break in in the middle of it just to get a picture with you, would you feel annoyed or upset? because in the picture the girls took with him, josh looked pretty pissed. and josh has the right to say “no” to anybody who wants a picture with him. he doesn’t have to do whatever you say, your wish isn’t his command, and that goes for tyler too. ever wonder why they walk fast in public, and why tyler started hearing hoods and baseball caps to cover his face lately? to hide from us.

the crap with the crybabies. it’s nuts. y'all are making nasty comments about melanie’s appearance, and personally, i think mel is a very beautiful young woman. the real ugly people are the ones who made fun of her and her fans, they’re ugly on the inside. it isn’t right. i know that you would all feel awful if someone told you that your tooth gap was the 8th wonder of the world or made rude comments on your eyebrows. mel is a human being, and so are all of her fans, so start treating them with respect. because EVERY human deserves respect.

i understand why the clique is so hated. we’re mostly made up of awful people. i feel bad for tyler and josh because they deserve better fans than us. they deserve respectful, thoughtful people that wait patiently for new music instead of rabid, rude kids who spam their social media accounts, pretty much harassing them and pressuring them into releasing new music, commenting “i love you” constantly on their posts, and invading their personal lives and their privacy.

that’s it. that’s all i have to say. the clique sucks and i’m pretty ashamed that i even called myself a clique member. until you all clean up your act, i’m not one of you. i’m not a part of the clique anymore, i’m simply someone who listens to tøp. i’m just a fan. i refuse to identify as part of this madhouse called the skeleton clique. feel free to rb and rant about it yourself. i’m done

Not to sound bitter or anything but...

This is why I’m not doing theme days anymore after tomorrow. Because I literally can’t even bribe you guys to participate and it’s so frustrating. Like I love T'Challa and Sam and I love going through the tags and reblogging stuff about them but if you guys aren’t going to respond it’s not even worth me spending what little free time I have putting this all together. Like I literally made participating in this contest as easy as possible and you guys still didn’t. So anyway thank you to those who are participating and have participated. It means a lot to me. I’m sorry things didn’t work out with the themes days, I was really hoping they would but shit happens I guess. On the bright side apparently DC just confirmed a sequel to Wonder Woman so at least we have that.

Pulled Thoughts Regarding Supergirl’s Cast’s SDCC Behavior

I posted a little about this on Twitter this morning, and I’ve been talking both online and offline to a few friends about this throughout today, and I wanted to pull together everything I’ve been saying about this situation and how it applies to the big picture of media with regard to LGBTQ+ representation and fan treatment.

This is probably going to read more like an essay than my typical rants, but I’ve been in fandoms for a long time, and I’ve been blessed (if you can call it that) to see how things work from both the network’s side and the fandom’s side, so I’m going to throw in my two cents here.

But, just in case, the TL;DR for all of this is simple: Nothing will get better until everyone on all sides are educated on how things work and why things should and/or shouldn’t be said or done starting with networks teaching their actors and showrunners how to appropriately engage with their fandoms.

Mkay. So I’m just going to rant a little here.

Cultural appropriation. It’s a thing. And it SUCKS. I’m white right? Granted I’m half Cherokee, but I’m white. I’m American. Just clarifying all of this.

Just because I’m a white American girl does NOT mean that I can’t write creative writing pieces, scripts, poetry, and fanfics that are through the eyes of someone from a different gender, background, and culture. 

What it DOES mean is that if I choose to write a story from, say, a Jamaican pov, that I better DAMN WELL truly care about the culture and I better DAMN WELL do the research and not fall into cliches and shit like that. 

For my screenplay workshop final piece I’ve chosen to write from a Japanese characters pov in, guess what, JAPAN. But I have a deep knowledge, passion, and respect for the culture. So I did my research. My film genre I was given was horror. I worked hard to keep away from Japanese folklore or ghosts because I didn’t want to fall into cliches or traps. There are tons of things I need to improve in the editing process- but I think I did a pretty damn good job. 

Wanna know some of the things my first critique said to me?

- “Do you watch anime? I suggest watching some of that to see more of what their culture is like.”

- “Japan doesn’t really have serial killers. Why not watch the Ring or the Grudge for inspiration?”

- “More inspiration: watch some more anime (as mentioned above), like Naruto or whatever”

- (my title is Shinjuu) “I looked up the title. It means two lovers who can’t be together so they kill themselves. I don’t see that in here at all.”

……………………..

……………………..

……………………..

FUCKING. HELL.

Anime does NOT represent all of Japanese culture. Some FEATURES and some ASPECTS of Japanese culture is present in anime.

Japan DOES have serial killers. They aren’t as widely prevalent because of weapons laws, but they ARE there. Watch the news.

Watch. The. Ring. Watch. The. Grudge. I’m not writing a fucking ghost story. It is a horror movie that simply takes place in Japan. 

“Naruto or whatever” You clearly don’t know anything about anime if you’re suggesting I watch NARUTO for inspiration here. It has NOTHING to do with horror or serial killers. Oh, and “whatever?” Could you fucking care less? 

Sweetie, Shinjuu has multiple fucking meanings. How about you do more than look at the first result on Google, mkay? 


I cannot STAND when people disrespect a culture. I get it, there are a lot of things that I DON’T know about the Japanese culture. But this is a short film script. We aren’t actually filming. We aren’t putting details into the setting or the culture. I’m not writing about what I don’t know. I’m writing about what I DO know and what I have RESEARCHED because I want to get the facts RIGHT. This person clearly just reviewed my script based off of stereotypes and that’s not cool. AT. ALL. 

If it was “Oh, hey, I noticed that the school uniforms were this color, when I think Omori has these uniforms” then I would have been FINE. I would have WELCOMED it. But it wasn’t. 99% of the “advice” she gave me was nothing but stereotyping shit. Not. Fucking. Okay.

You aren’t helping my writing. You aren’t furthering my knowledge of writing scripts. You aren’t interested in the script at all. Get. Out.

I LOVE the mermaid outfit from the new boutique!

…..BUT….

Ok…I know I don’t do alot of…critiques or rants…on MCL, but…

Why is it that you can take five or six fin colors for Eldarya’s mermaid episode and give each of them different skin tones…

but NOT for the six mermaid fin colors in the summer boutique for MCL?

That’s my big pet peeve, cause I love mermaids and I love flexibility options, not “tie the skin tones with certain colors of mermaid fin”

I wanna be a red mermaiiiid :’(

What do you guys think?

Eurgh. 
Have to more or less go straight from work, to a social gathering I don’t want to go to … but my housemate kinda volunteered me for. 

High key the only reason I’m going is that one of my best friends is travelling down for it, and I don’t want to abandon him.

Long story short, it was meant to be a geeky stag do - drinks and DnD. In the last 24 hours it has been downgraded to a 2 hour meal in Wetherspoons (cheapest place in town) without the groom, followed by an evening of spending time getting to know the bride and her friends at a gathering … essentially turning it into a pre-wedding reception?

I dunno, due to my brain weasels two things I hate:
- last minute changes to plans
- having meeting groups of new people sprung on me

Add to that, because I’m kinda the father figure of the group, I have everyone asking me what’s happening and I keep telling them “Not my circus, not my monkeys” as I’m not taking over planning again

This is going to be a long ass day. 
*extended sigh*
