Hey look at you, kid! Now in a fandom that has a
confirmed, canon, aro ace character.
I bet you are ready to jump into that trash pile
of a TV show now! Wait, the writers are queer baiting both the bi, ace, and
aromantic community? Well, 2017 is a series of unfortunate events, isn’t it?
You might not know me, I pre-date “THE
DISCOURSE” and I know all too well both who keeps certain fandoms alive
and who tries to come in to bully binary breakers. If you (luckily) missed out
Dragon Age bull shit because you were happily reading comics, I’m here to help.
To prevent assholes from pissing on your
enjoyment I suggest the following. Aphobes know what they are doing. This isn’t
years ago, where you kindly explain their bigotry, or aggressively point out all
the -isms they are doing. They’ve doxed people, they’ve suicide baited, they’ve
stalked, so on, and so on. This is 2017. It’s nazi punching season, don’t go
into anything thinking you can convince them off their bigoted rock.
If you want to engage, do so. But please mind
the emotional wear. If you were using the comics or the show as escapism, don’t
pick this battle with them. There are so many battles to be had. I’m not here
to demand anything, but I am here to tell you how to avoid the thing you love
being painfully and forcefully ruined on you.
Step 1: No platform the assholes
Don’t engage. They want your attention. They like seeing people hurt. They are
in the ace positivity tags because they want to attack you.
Step 2: Block the assholes Here’s a
list. I’m normally the last to block people, but those
who uphold oppressive systems attack from all sides. You don’t owe your
attention to anyone. It’s far too easy to see 50 shades of bullshit by
Step 3: Block nasty anons If they came into your ask box, they are asking directly for your attention. Deny them it. Tumblr lets you
block anons. Do so.
Step 4: Remember that Jughead is canonically aro
ace. They are the ones with the theories. They are the ones without confirmation.
They are the ones ripping labels off queer characters to apply their own. Fuck
what they say, this character is yours. This isn’t to embolden you, this is a
reminder not to fight those who have no power in this situation. If you are in
a fighting mood, attack systems, not their people.
Hello! Im making this post bc I’ve gotten a few questions that don’t neceserally need the character’s to answer them + a bit more info about the AU!
In my last post i explained that there are different ways to get your powers! Some are born with it and some have, ‘help’ to get theirs. Everybody has the potential to have their powers but if they are not born with it they have to experience a life or death situation to ‘activate’ them, or they die if they aren’t strong enough to handle it. More info under the cut!
SQUIPs can ‘activate’ a persons power when they see that they either, need them, or simply to fulfilled their purpose (to make someone cool). They do their math and calculate the percentage of somebody surviving the ‘activation’ and take the risk if they need to, but if the persons too weak they don’t take the risk. Their powers grow depending on how much they practice with them, it’s like a muscle they need to train it constantly or else it’ll just stay weak. Now to go a bit in depth into two characters who have been the targets of all of the angst u guys have!
Michael (since he is the target of a lot of angsty questions,, i see u) : Michael, as most of ya’ll know can travel through electronics, electricity is coursing through a thing? Yup Michael can go through it! But if he were to say get trapped in one of those electronic devices he will slowly start to disintegrate since literally the only reason he’s inside of that is because of the electricity. The bigger the thing the easier it is for him to travel too since he doesn’t have to force himself so much to go through the device. Yes he has tried to go through SQUIPs since technically it’s a super computer and it has electricity i mean it’s shocked Jeremy with electricity! In short it didn’t go well, the SQUIP is extremely small and Michael had to endure a few minutes of being in it and it strained his body heavily plus the SQUIP went into a 'Self Defense Mode’ since there was an intruder. That’s all I’m going to disclose on Michael because i don’t want to ruin all surprises ;)
Jeremy (2nd target for all ya’ll angsty asks, why do u guys like hurting the boyf riends sm?): Jeremy can control electronics and the electricity in them, but he can not make electricity out of thin air he can only control previously existing electricity in a device. Jeremy is extremely careful when using his powers around Michael when he’s in devices and especially careful when he pranks Michael by turning off electronic devices around him (not the one he’s in of course), and anyways he can only hold it for maybe a minute or two before giving in because it eventually starts to drain him, but after an accident involving Michael he tries to limit when he does it so really it’s not something he does a lot anymore.
Like I’ve stated I don’t have a definitive story to this au, mostly tailored the questions i get so… YOU guys are the one growing this story, with a small push from me dropping hints if i have an idea and want it to go somewhere! P.S I’m sorry if sometimes the answers don’t make sense or if they contradict each other. I’m just one mod and this is my first time seriously dealing with an ask blog! Don’t let the multiple art styles confuse you It’s simply just one 15 yr old who doesn’t have a definitive artstyle.
P.P.S i don’t know if this either helped answer a few questions, shed a bit more light on the au or inspired more questions! I just hope that this was helpful to a small degree,,, Please remember that this is actually just fantasy and a bit of sci-fi! Not everything’s gonna make sense, ya’ll just gotta roll with it (I won’t purposely start to make things confusing or not understandable now but there will probably be a few things that just cant be explained!)
Any questions that i see the could have been answered here won’t be answered by the characters! I try to upload a few answers a day and I don’t want to put time into an answer that’s been answered here sorry! Previously asked questions wont be affected tho, just new ones that come in after I’ve posted this but like a day or two later bc heck I don’t expect everybody to read this today.
P. P. P. S Also,, THANK YOU GUYS FOR 150 FOLLOWERS? IT’S ONLY BEEN LIKE 3 DAYS SINCE I MADE THIS ACCOUNT? YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!
Also small hint: read the tags that i put on the answers ;) Some have bonus info
** As the au grows I might add more info here, don’t worry I’ll keep you guys updated if i do!
