Here's what I think white people don't understand (or even want to understand): in hispanic culture, we take pride in our hispanic last names. some of us have grown up hating our names because it's "too hispanic" or "too cuban" or what have you that we have white-sounding nicknames (yes hello my real name isn't nelly lmao). We want to see characters with in animation with these names. Because we never should've grown up hating it. (1/2)
This goes beyond names, too. We grew up only seeing Mexican as being the only represented Hispanic culture, and that’s different from our own. We grew up feeling weird, when we’re just underrepresented. This is why we make Hispanic headcanons. Because this is *our* representation, and yet people only acknowledge it to fetishize him??? Like, if our discussions and headcanons make you uncomfortable guess what?? YOU’RE THE REASON WHY WE THOUGHT WE WERE WEIRD. AND ALSO UR RACIST BYE FELICIA (2/2)
What taxi song??? The old french taxi song??? Id k
this song was the only song i listened to during a trip two summers ago, it’s the most stupid and awful song but every taxi we took back to the hotel had it in replay, even my friends played it all day and i feel so attacked by it
i have a lot of things to say about open/ambiguous endings, but the tl;dr version is that sometimes stories are better when they’re not tied up neatly with a bow at the end, and that sometimes the feedback authors get from readers demanding sequels can be discouraging rather than encouraging.
:D Senpai! Just wanted you to know that your writing is amazing!
AAAH I AM NOT WORTHY OF SUCH A TITLE. Gah you people are too nice to me. Now I want to do something for you! So, here’s a bit from my continuation for the handplates story. This scene is short, but is pretty set in stone.
I’ve decided that it’s possible to love someone for entirely selfless reasons, for all of their flaws and weaknesses, and still not succeed in having them love you back. It’s sad, perhaps, but not tragic, unless you dwell forever in the pursuit of their elusive affections.
