Completely random but I’ve been thinking about making an ask blog, idk what I would do it for though. I mean tbh I don’t really know much about running an ask blog in general, and it’s not like my art is any good. But ya know, it’s the thought that counts :’)
I’m surprised that some people still refer to Yuri on Ice’s content as ‘yaoi fanservice’?
Like, I get that all the butt shots and Victor’s need to get naked every episode are fanservice of some form, but Victor and Yuuri’s relationship just isn’t.
Or, if you think it is, then just tell me: when do interactions between two characters of the same sex stop being ‘fanservice’ and start being a canonical relationship?
Like, seriously how much further do they have to go for you to realize that they’re *gasp* gay for each other?
I mean, what are you expecting? The things we see in straight couples? Like, Idk, maybe physical closeness? Hugs? Holding hands? Touching foreheads? Public declarations of love? The desire to seduce/be seduced by your partner? Mental support? The desire to help someone find confidence in their skills? The desire to know someone better but also the tact of knowing not to push too far? The act of understanding love thanks to one very specific person? The act of dedicating your best work to one specific person? The act of always being there for one specific person?
Come now, you must be dreaming, no pair of two characters of the same sex could get that sort of development.
Oh wait. They already did.
Tell me one more time that Yuri on Ice offers nothing but yaoi fanservice. I double freaking dare you.
i found this and please just read hussies comments on vriska because im almost in tears i cant believe ive never seen this before…. shes my FAVE and i will eat up literally any commentary made abt her
When I was about to launch into the Hivebent arc, I thought one cool opportunity that presented was to introduce a very major character out of nowhere, who we had literally no foreknowledge of other than one shot of a strange looking horn cropped off panel. The entire profile of this character was always meant to be “someone who is in some way involved with practically everything", and the scorpio sign seemed suited to this. This aspect of her profile was conveyed up front in her introduction, and hammered repeatedly with almost every scene she’s been in. Hivebent was a good introduction to the ways in which she entangles herself nefariously with everything, and slowly but surely, this has been revealed to be the case in the main plotline. It was unclear before, and indeed unclear that this was even a question that needed to be answered, because she had not been introduced yet. And personally, I think there's something kind of exciting which that proposition injects into a story.
Before Hivebent, most of the trolls were portrayed as incompetent at trolling. And when the roster was expanded, the question was begged: are any of these trolls any good at trolling? So part of her profile was also to serve as the ultimate troll. Karkat was an effective troll insofar as he was loud and angry and obnoxious, but that’s about as far as it went. Vriska was designed to be a good troll in the purest sense of the word. She gets people legitimately riled up. Both in the story, and even more importantly, outside it. There is no other troll, or really even any other aspect of Homestuck, which generates more debate. This was intentional, and continues to be.
Everything we know about Stranger Things season 2 (so far)
Will is most likely suffering from PTSD—he’s seeing things from the upside down and can’t quite tell if they’re real or not.
Hopper is attempting to keep all the events of last season, like the disappearance of Barb, a secret in order to protect Joyce and the kids.
Siblings Nancy and Mike have changed and are mourning the (seeming) deaths of friends Barb and Eleven. “She and Mike are both the most screwed-up because they’re the ones who both lost someone,” says co-creator Ross Duffer. “They’re both grappling with that, and we see the effects.”
Max (New female character, 13 years old) becomes pals with the boys and attracts romantic interest from Lucas and Dustin.
Max’s brother Billy doesn’t exactly make friends and Matt Duffer had this to say about him: “Stephen King always has really great human villains. The evil in the real world is often as bad or worse than the supernatural evil, so we wanted to introduce a character like that.”
The rift to the upside down is still open
Dustin will get polliwog-like pet and Gaten Matarozzo says: “It’s a little creature I get to bond with. It’s obviously not from this planet or this dimension.”
