this is so unbearably embarrassing and I will never not think about how it’s really fucking funny that a person with such a massive queer demographic probably still pieces together his ideas of terminology from what he reads on gaming subreddits
THE REASON WHY THE GOOD TEEN TITANS IS NEVER COMING BACK
ive seen MANY times on my dash different posts either complaining about teen titans go ( and rightfully so tbh) or whining/begging for the original teen titans to somehow make a triumphant return
unfortunately no amount of petitions you sign, emails you send, or rants you post, will ever bring the original back bc of 1 reason:
THE CREATOR IS A FUCKING ASSHOLE
let me explain;
when i was in my starting year at SCAD i was going for animation (dropped that like a rock but thats beside the point haha). there was a special seminar at night where freshman could meet w professionals in whatever field they were planning to go to. i thought this sounded amazing bc i was so eager to learn so i went, and to my surprise i was the only student who went.
i talked to the animation and sequential art guys and it was amazing to have their complete attention!! i felt much less shy talking about how insecure i was about my art than i would have been in a group of many students.
the animation guy asked me if i knew of the show teen titans, and i said ofc and that i loved it and wished it hadnt been cancelled
and then he told me something i would never forget
“it got cancelled bc NO ONE wanted to work w the creator. it got so bad people were quitting left and right until the studio decided they had to let him go. it didnt matter how successful the show was, or how many ratings it got/fans it had. this guy was so unbearable to be around that even if his product was amazing no one wanted to be a part of it any more.
so dont feel bad about your art not being the best, if you are a kind, and genuine person then people will want to work with you. its not about how quality the end result is, its if you are a person people would enjoy being around.”
Something that may come as surprising to folks whose needs and comfort levels are already catered to by the world around them, is that “coping” is exhausting.
There are a great many people who are perfectly capable of adjusting to certain situations, be it a matter of social interaction, or physical disability, medical conditions, or whatever the case may be. Through trial and error we have discovered tricks and methods that allow us to function in a society that wasn’t created with us in mind, and we’re very good at making it look like we’re getting along just fine.
But it’s tiring. Always, constantly having to be vigilant and on-guard while everyone around us takes everything in stride, and then no one understands why, at the end of the day, we shut down. Because we were able to “get by” throughout the day, suddenly our unwillingness or inability to cope is no longer valid.
It’s like carrying a 20 pound weight all fucking day long. Just because you can doesn’t mean you don’t need or deserve a break. And then when you finally put the weight down, everyone around you scolds you and chastises you, accuses you of being lazy, insists that you’re just “faking because it’s convenient.”
This is why it’s so fucking unbearable living in a home where everyone chooses to disregard your limits and your comfort levels. Family members will say, “I’m not going to cater to your needs, because the ~real world~ won’t cater to you and you need to get used to that.”
Consider: People who struggle and cope through everyday life are already painfully aware that the “real world” doesn’t give a fuck about us. This is why we develop coping strategies that allow us to function. This is why when we finally come home, when we are FINALLY through with the “real world” for the day, we just want some goddamn compassion. We just want the people we live with to place value on our needs, comfort levels, and limitations. We want the people who say they love us to demonstrate that love through doing whatever small thing they can do to ensure that when we’re in the comfort of our own homes, we can actually be comfortable instead of having to continue carrying around that weight that we’ve been forced to hold up all. day. long.
we kill the notion that only reluctant leaders are good leaders? The idea that
Dany isn’t fit to rule because she believes she can and should, and Jon is the ~true ruler~ because he never sought out any position of leadership is so popular in
this fandom, and it’s such a boring ass take. There’s nothing wrong with owning
who you are and embracing being a leader, and feeling confident in that. Call
her arrogant or entitled if you must, but when push comes to shove, she always shows
up for her people, and so many are better off because of her. Look I can go on for days about how fearlessly
Dany takes on responsibility for those under her rule, despite
what a huge burden that must be to have the fate of so many people in her hands.
I can go on about how she doesn’t even flinch at all that responsibility, and
yet you have people arguing that she doesn’t deserve to rule because “she’s too
full of herself.”
