this looks bad but whatever

I’ve been getting a lot of gross messages lately and they all complain about my cosplays just because of my race. Instead of taking it to heart, I put together some pictures of some of my favorite cosplays that I’ve done. I’m not cosplaying for “accuracy,” I’m doing it because it fun and I enjoy it. And even if I was doing it for said accuracy, my being black doesn’t hold me back from that. I’ll never understand people’s need to “critique” someone else but base it on a factor that they cannot change. That goes for skin color, race, body type whatever! Next time any of you want to message giving your opinion on the way someone looks naturally, shut your mouth! :) 💕

Hold up...

I’m confused here. I haven’t really been up to date on the issue so this is the first I’m hearing about this. So let me get this right?

The new D.VA skin features Hana Song as a member of the what, Busan Police Division? In a South Korean police outfit? Her hat literally has the red and blue Taeguk on it (well, the symbol for the Korean police department in general). 

And this is somehow connected with American police brutality?

Let’s be real guys. And I don’t want to generalise but if it’s people complaining about American police brutality, then I’m sure it’s the American people finding an issue with it. I just want to tell you: Why are you making this about you? She’s a native South Korean girl in a South Korean police uniform and you’re making it about you. Why do you always do that? Contrary to whatever beliefs you have, you are not the centre of the universe, nor is America the only country with a Police division. 

I mean, sure we can discuss her bunny logo and its implications. Like, is she in her own division? How much leniency does this government give her? What rank is she even? Or does she just suit up and go around claiming she’s in the police force?

Mixup

Yuuri has never quite understood Viktor’s delight when they meet someone who has no idea who they are. But about two years into their marriage, he’s starting to get it.

“Met through figure skating, huh,” the older lady draws out slowly. Her gaze sways between him and Viktor. Yuuri is about 80% sure this is a distant cousin of the Chulanonts, but his brain had blanked out during her introduction. 

“They’re famous, Hathai,” Phichit explains. 

“More famous than you?”

“Nope,” says Phichit with a pop of his lips and wide, innocent eyes. Viktor’s mouth twitches up, amused. “Course not! But it was quite the love story. Over ten years ago he saw him skating for the first time, became his biggest fan, and devoted his life to the sport. Then, years later–” and several international scandals later “–they entered a student-coach relationship and fell in mutual love!”

“Oh, dear,” she says, smiling sweetly, “that’s some dedication you have! So you’ve been his biggest fan since childhood?”

Hathai has spent the last hour of this dinner party watching Viktor trail Yuuri around the gathering, hand on his shoulder, heart-shaped smile beaming out. Hathai has watched Viktor hand-feed him appetizers and sneak a kiss in the corner of the room and stare after Yuuri with delighted, disbelieving eyes.

Hathai is patting Viktor on the arm, and asking him this question.

In the past, Yuuri would have cleared his throat. “It’s me,” he’s taken to interrupting politely. It’s happened many, many times. “I was the fan first.”

Not anymore.

“Go on,” Yuuri prompts, trying not to make his smirk too obvious. Viktor’s mild protest dies out completely when Yuuri takes his hand, squeezes it. “Viktor. Tell her about how you became my biggest fan.”

The appeal of people removed from figure skating is never lost on Yuuri again.

A thought: Modern flinthamilton AU in which Alfred is still a homophobic douchebag but they went ‘fuck you’ and got married anyway.

I call this “Thomas I don’t think your husband is listening to a single word you say…… he’s… distracted”

I can’t think properly when I’m with you! Everything just becomes messy in my head!
