So I don’t on the typically venture a whole lot into nsfw headcanons (I don’t have a lot to say there and even when I think of things it’s slightly awkward)… but for some reason I had this idea and it’s just making me laugh?
Like according to RepCom Jedi can feel targeted emotions deliberately focused on them and that they ARE the target of that emotion. We’ve seen Dar use it to hunt and I imagine Etain taught him to calm Kad with it, the way she does when she’s visualizing the garden in Order 66.
But it’s for some reason hilarious to me to imagine Darman deliberately focusing on Etain, visualizing sexy stuff, and grinning as she gets more and more red-faced/flustered/distracted.
(She always tells him to stop but sometimes this works out for him beyond just humor too.)
Bonus points if they’re somewhere semi public and poor Jusik inadvertently walks in, turns red, and is all “wtf STOP.”
mun question: I love the way u play Optimus and I was just wondering, what made you decide to rp him?
a❤︎ ┊ ( ooc. )
first of all, thank you! i’m glad you like how i share my smol truck child.
secondly—omg, what a question!
it is the culmination of many things that draw me towards optimus. first of all, i’m also more inclined to write the protagonist of a story, especially if they are the hero type. when i used to rp harry potter, which was never on tumblr, i rped the titular character. i’m all for creativity but i also strive for accuracy, so the protagonist is typically the easiest to get a clear concept and develop a framework for writing as someone other than the original content creator.
there is a lot of theme and concepts behind the character of optimus prime: he is a messiah, he is a hero, he is sovereign, he is a soldier. then there is his other traits: he is humble and brave, he has a destiny and a stubborn will to follow his own path, and a complex relationship with each character and every group. he doesn’t interact with others the way a normal person does, he doesn’t even respond to things as a normal individual. although he is arguably the strongest autobot in most shows, he is also the one who obviously shows how heavy of a burden he carries. right around the time i found the tf rp community on tumblr i had just rewatched the west wing for about the second time, and i saw so much of an ideal president in optimus. i’ve also had years of interest in the concept of ordained sovereigns throughout history and the philosophies entangled in it all. both of these concepts are behind optimus and it is fascinating to unfold. there is also a beautiful majesty to him—he is so grand and transcendent, trapped in a conflict that is just so very mortal. i’m really drawn to how he is really one of the most idealistic and less flawed characters in fiction, yet his few flaws are just so crucial. with other characters they are so flawed that it becomes hard to see them all and after awhile it is just another quirk among many negative quirks (i.e. starscream). optimus has fewer flaws, but that makes their importance all the stronger and more potent. what are the flaws of a messiah and an uncompromising moralist? it is the little selfish failures, the compromises made. i like how tiny his cracks are.
so overall, i decided to rp him because i couldn’t get him out of my head. it was like being consumed by someone else’s voice that wanted to be heard in a different timbre than before. so, i shoved the truck out and gave into his will. :3c
Po Toi island is a 30 minute ferry ride from Stanley or one hour from Aberdeen, but the landscape is so unlike Hong Kong. The foliage is the same colour palette as Australia, it’s not that deep blue jungle green you usually see in the tropics. The weather that day was perfect - clear, sunny, dry and windy. So opposite to what we typically experience!
for a show that’s about a black woman joining major league baseball, talks about the pressure on women to succeed in male-dominated sports, features an amazing platonic relationship between the main female and another main black male, talks openly about anxiety issues, includes a black housewife that flourishes in that role while supporting her husband’s career, while also talking about the sacrifices she has made AND has a very beautiful friendship based on respect and love between the main career-orientated female and the housewife, pitch does not get the love it deserves
Adhd is not always genius level white boys whith tons of energy and fast reflexes
Executive dysfunction so bad you couldnt shower for over a week
A queer kid who thinks they’re broken because they dont fit the narritive.
Adhd is not always a gift in disguise, it can be debilitating
and self esteem crushing.
How many times have you heard the phrase
“Not working to your full potential”?
Listen, im sorry if i didnt do my homework, but i didnt eat dinner until 11pm because i couldnt find the motivation to make anything.
I once repeatedly put off and forgot sending a thank you email to someone i had interviewed for a month.
It took me 3 weeks to make myself write a short essay, but once i did it, it took an hour. I got a 94% on the rubric, but failed because it was so late.
I have dealt with years of working through the voice in my head saying
Im lazy im lazy im lazy im bad im dirty im useless ill never amount to anything
Years of fear that i wont be able to survive on my own, that i’ll be too late and too disorganized and unmotivated.
I had to teach myself that motivation and productivity dp not define my worth. That being “lazy” doesnt make me less of a human being.
So sorry if your quirky hyper white boy narrative doesnt do it for me.
what I want from the ghostbusters sequel is erin and holtzmann canonically dating, but I want it to be subtle. I want no explanation, no interlude, erin and holtz are just dating in the next movie. no gay panic, no beating around the bush, they’re just already dating when the movie starts, and we can sort of tell but then it’s made official when they share a casual kiss goodbye or something of that nature. I don’t want it super sexualized and I don’t want it super cliche and ugly and like BUT I’M STRAIGHT!!! no I just want it to be just like they introduce straight couples in movies. I want it normalized and I want it casual and I want it now.
