When a really good show gets cancelled because of a terrible time slot.

When really a good show gets cancelled because of poor merchandise sales.

When a really good show gets cancelled because they didn’t “hit their target audience”

When a really good show gets cancelled and a really shit show gets more seasons.

So speaks Genndy Tartakovsky, my animation idol and hero:

I hate realism.

In America especially, we’re very narrow-minded as far as animation goes. There is only one kind of movie, and that’s that big, family-oriented, four-quadrant, please-everyone kind of film. But if I wanted realism, I’d watch a live-action movie. Those lines are being blurred every day. When I go to see a movie, especially an animated movie, I’m going to escape. The more realistic it is, the less believable it is.


TW: unreality, derealisation

"Unreality is a blanket term that generally refers to things that are blatantly untrue but are presented as though they were fact, particularly when reality itself is questioned. … 

In people who experience depersonalization, derealization, and other similar mental states, this can cause severe anxiety, because it leads them to question whether what they perceive to be real is actually reality, whether they actually inhabit a physical body, or whether they even exist at all. [x]

Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people.” – Lori

based on this. i wanted a version with appropriate diversity and my kind of ladies.
