Fun fact: Tenochtitlan fell in 1521. From 1603 onwards, large numbers of honest-to-god fricking Japanese Samurai came to Mexico from Japan to work as guardsmen and mercenaries.
Ergo, it would be 100% historically accurate to write a story starring a quartet consisting of the child or grandchild of Aztec Noblemen, an escaped African slave, a Spanish Jew fleeing the Inquisition (which was relaxed in Mexico in 1606, for a time) and a Katana-wielding Samurai in Colonial Mexico.
I see a lot of people always say things such as; “King Chittaphon Leechaiyapornkul” or “Lisa is the princess of Thailand” or “Thailand’s King Nichkhun” or “Prince Bambam of Thailand” etc. (do i need to go on). First of all, I’d just like to ask everyone to STOP addressing Thai idols with royal titles. It is EXTREMELYdisrespectful to Thailand, the Thai Royal Family, Thai culture, Thai beliefs and the idols themselves. When Sorn was on Happy Together and the hosts kept saying she was Thailand’s princess - you could see how uncomfortable she was and she kept saying no. You know why? It’s disrespectful. Thailand as a nation love and respect our royal family, a lot. We even have pictures of the Royal family everywhere, we stop in our tracks when the national anthem play, our late king passed away and we are still having the year long mourning period. So to be seeing common people referred to as a royalty of our nation, I’m sorry but it’s offensive. I know how great those idols are and as a Thai person I am proud of them for making a name for our country. However, the kpop fandom needs to stop giving them royal titles. They are not even considered A Listers in Thailand! Only people who like kpop knows them. (well except Nichkhun since he’s done many cfs and even lakorns). I mean, if you say King Ten or Prince Bambam no one will care, but if you add of Thailand, it’s another story. Please think about how you’re belittling a nation by doing it and think about how those idols will definitely also be uncomfortable with it and find it disrespectful. I know it’s just a lack of knowledge but I hope EVERYONE will stop doing this. It’s not a matter of Thai people being petty, it is a serious issue as it’s even a crime in Thailand to belittle the royal family and it’s treated as treason.
The thing that’s honestly hilarious about aggressive and moralistic anti shipping movements is that it literally does not matter at all.
Nobody outside of a very niche bubble and a small number of people even remotely gives a shit. They pour all this time and energy into something that absolutely nobody in the real world outside of the Internet gives a flying fuck about. It would be sad if it wasn’t so funny.
I got inspired by humans are weird posts.
The first time it happened, no one took notice. When it reached the hundredth time, everyone took notice.
The newest members of the Galactic Alliance were tough beyond imagination. Stories were spread all over the place.
“I once saw one go for ten klicks without stopping, while their leg was broken.”
“Hey, have you heard about the time one managed to lift half of a ship to get a member of the crew out?”
“They do what???”
“They pierce metal into their flesh and inject ink into their skin.”
“How do they not die?”
“They heal so fast it doesn’t trouble them.”
The species in question: Humans. Rumors spread of their strength. Twenty years after they joined one of the Universe’s most brilliant minds released an article on humans.
She had lived among humans since they joined. Every bit of their culture fascinated her. When her apartment complex went up in flames she saw men and women racing inside to get those trapped out. Her eyes widened when she met veterans. They told her stories that she could hardly believe, but their mental and physical scars told otherwise. Her heart stopped when a child went missing and their parents searched for weeks even when others had given up. Famine struck in small countries, cars crashed, children were born, friends became family, some were lost, others were gained, and these strange creatures always kept going. Humans were people of iron wills, mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers.
This brilliant mind read through their lore and felt all their feelings. Danger was not unfamiliar to them. It was a fact of life. Animals nearly gave her a heart attack.
“What creatures are these?”
“Those are cats. They’re a type of pet.”
“You keep flesh-eating clawed animals as pets?”
Not to mention the weather, and the planet itself.
“Why is the ground shaking?”
“It’s an Earthquake. They’re quite common here, because we are on a fault line.”
“Is this planet designed to kill you?”
“In a way, yes.”
The atmosphere was made up of oxygen. Which is used as a type of fuel source. Essentially, humans breathed death.
When the article hit the mainstream humans became the most sought after explorers. Who knew that these people were so tough.
