You stretched out on your bed with a groan. Even with your curtains shut and all the lights off, it still seemed too bright in your bedroom. A headache blared behind your eyes, you felt nauseous and to top it all off, your vagina was trying to kill you.
Next to you on your nightstand, your phone hummed a text. You shifted, searching for it blindly. You rubbed your eye, squinting at the too-bright screen.
it’s andrew giving in to an impulse he’s been fighting off because he knows deep down kissing neil would not be anything like kissing roland. because he cares about neil and he hates it but he knows that there’s no turning back now
it’s neil figuring out that he really does wantthis but still unsure if it’s worth the risk
it’s andrew saying ‘tell me no’ and neil not saying anything because he’s kind of in the middle of a crisis and he wants to kiss andrew, he doesn’t want to say ‘no’ but he can’t say ‘yes’ yet either
and it’s andrew pushing neil away even though he doesn’t tell him ‘no’ because he didn’t say ‘yes’ either and he knows that even if he had neil isn’t in any state of mind to be able to give consent
that kiss on the roof is the start of everything and andrew is terrified of falling but he’s really too late to stop it
i don’t like doing this but i’m going to make that post because i want there to be a post that isn’t from someone w/ a raging hateboner for either
as a southeast asian woman, the thing gigi did hurt. “asian eyes” is a very loaded topic bc it ties in w/ stereotypes and yellowface and all that ugly stuff. it’s obviously wrong and the right thing for her to do would be to apologize and admit what she did was wrong.
the thing zayn did was not any better. yes zayn is asian like me. but besides the whole “a person gets a pass bc they’re dating someone of that race” (i don’t want to open tht can of worms rn), zayn has no place speaking in what gigi did.
the asian community is large and very diverse (and sad to say, still very divisive bc of the intra issues tht include colorism, classism, and discrimination within the whole community). the asian eyes issue does not really affect zayn because this is an issue that’s tied to southeast/east asians. it’s the same way desi issues would not affect me. so in turn, like i would have no place to speak about being called a terrorist, zayn has no place to speak about the thing w/ asian eyes.
i still love them both but what they did was wrong and hurtful to a group of people and that does deserve some calling out and people in that group are allowed to feel what they feel. this doesn’t mean they are inherently bad people, it just means they did something messed up and it shouldn’t be defended.
also discussing this topic, ppl needn’t bring up past mess ups because that has absolutely nothing to do with the actual topic at hand and it’s v obvious ppl who do so only do it to fuel the fire.
i wanted to make this post bc asian issues esp across different cultural and ethnic groups are v nuanced and many people don’t seem to understand that. also i wanted it coming from a genuine place, not just from someone who severely dislike either zayn or gigi or both.
honestly i think one of the reasons sirica’s episode is my favorite episode from the kirby anime is because the show is generally about a tiny marshmallow that gains powers from whatever he eats to destroy evil monsters, and everyone else fights with swords or abilities kirby can copy from, and the setting appears to be somewhat medieval with some modern day elements mixed into it, but not much.
BUT THEN SIRICA COMES IN WITH A FUCKING GUN
just. straight up barges into the show with a fucking GUN. this young little girl just put up her middle finger and said “fuck that sword i’m just getting a fucking gun”
IT’S BOTH A MACHINE GUN AND A BAZOOKA. OKAY. I DUNNO WHY A YOUNG GIRL HAS A GUN THAT IS TWO GUNS ROLLED INTO ONE BUT-
IT’S ALSO A FLAMETHROWER??? WHY? WHY DID THEY PUT ON A FUCKING FLAMETHROWER ON A GUN THAT IS BASICALLY TWO GUNS?
FUCK IT BRO WE’VE ALREADY GOT TWO GUNS AND A FLAMETHROWER WHO NOT ADD A SWORD ONTO IT
THIS CHILD, THIS FUCKING CHILD THAT IS ONLY IN THIS EPISODE AND THE FINAL EPISODE, IS MORE ARMED THAN THE ENTIRETY OF THE CAST, INCLUDING THE FUCKING ARMY
and not only that, she knows how to fucking USE IT. She knows how to fight with a sword, a flamethrower, and two kinds of guns AT THE SAME TIME. She manages to take down one of the strongest characters in the show with this thing, not once, but TWICE.
how did she get this gun? how does she know how to use it? who gives a shit about that? she just walks in and OWNS EVERYONE with this out of nowhere weapon and we’re all just supposed to accept that a child managed to do that with no real explanation.
THIS IS WHY THE KIRBY ANIME IS THE BEST ANIME OUT THERE
