tumblr users wardenblues and commanderbishoujo have been incredible inspirations for me as a fan. the way they talk about their headcanons and characters and contribute to fandom is just so enthusiastic that i can’t help but be enthusiastic too.
wardenblues is a wonderful artist, her designs for her characters’ armor are really cool in that they keep the spirit of the armor in the games but improve it and have her own touch. She is incredibly passionate and caring and I love her OCs.
Sometimes I buy art of Lena and her two boyfriends from extremely talented people. Sometimes they do such an amazing job I could just cry. And you guys should definitely all go check Tanya out because seriously. Seriously. Look at this beautiful piece of art.
I recently commissioned wardenblues to draw up busts of mia-culpa and my leveling duo, the good-hearted Quinnly (my bounty hunting chiss) and the Emperor’s Wroth (mia’s veiny Warrior). We affectionally call ourselves “The Bane Brigade,” and I’m glad I was able to commission up something so pretty to reflect my appreciation of the time mia and I spend together in-game.
So: happy belated Life Day, mia! Here’s to another year of killing hutts!
(I even made sure wardenblues knew mia and my favorite outfits, which she incorporated into the busts! Top notch, amazing work. And the expressions are exactly as described! I am extremely happy.)
I’ve seen it expressed before and it’s manifested in the blistering backlash that seems to crop up whenever there’s a focused period of time on femslash. Not to mention how much m/m seems to outweigh f/f regards fanfiction in particular.
There’s just an unsettling impression I get that a lot of people seem to feel like lesbians are somehow cheap/dirty while gay dudes are not. Like the latter is more “genuine” and beautiful. And I’ll never try to insinuate that it isn’t or can’t be or whatever, I’m just at once both amused and pissed off at the impression regards lesbians.
might want to unfollow me then cause i’m anti-whitewashing and i said so on my blog. not to mention there was no bullying anyway, not from my friends and i. getting called on whitewashing is not bullying.
Calling someone on whitewashing isn’t bullying.
Bullying is bullying.
I don’t agree with whitewashing, that really shouldn’t need to be said and I don’t like having that implied just because I don’t like how this was handled. Well done for not bullying her, but plenty of people did and I saw that shit with my own eyes. I don’t like it and I don’t have to like it.
i feel like you and i are the oyd defense brigade rn i'm just sayin
<333 i couldn’t ask for better company.
i’m so angry!!?? i don’t even know if i’d be this angry if it was me being attacked??? probably because i don’t have her maturity or class and so i don’t think i’d be as kind and patient as she was for so long, which makes it especially upsetting. it’s always the people with the best hearts who get the most crap.
but yeah, it’s ridiculous. when this is all over let’s start a folk-punk band (same name, oyd defense brigade) and sing songs about this and hair and mages and ONLY COOL PEOPLE who don’t send ridiculous messages to our friend can come to our concerts
