If the last few days have reminded me of anything, it’s that there’s a ridiculous double standard for gay characters. 

One of the most frequent complaints about my fic was that everyone was gay and it was unrealistic, and when I put up my notice that I was leaving ffnet, one of the most frequent whiners defended himself by saying that it was his right to be offended by pairings with no basis, who were just randomly paired together.

This is particularly hilarious because I threw in a straight pairing with even less set up, and no one said anything. Certainly not him. 

The pairing in question wasn’t even blatant, but they’d already had a conversation regarding fears, a few moments of mutual admiration, and shared an understanding of each other’s fears and issues. This is honestly more than a lot of het pairings get, and I’m just so frustrated that the kind of people who complain about this can say I’m not a homophobe and be believed

Treating people as people isn’t some sort of gay agenda. It’s reality

anonymous asked:

I noticed that all the Yamas have a little symbol on their shirts and jackets... what is that?? Did they do that???

It’s the 山 (yama) kanji! It’s part of all of their names so it’s just the yama club symbol now and lmao yes I’d like to think that Shibayama stuck them onto everyone but who knows!!

Anonymous said: I actually went on haikyuu’s character wiki and there are 10 yamas in total, but I think at least 3 of them didn’t even get lines. 

Yes, there sure is! I would like to include them all, but drawing so many characters every time would end up tiring me out ;; Thank you for letting me know though!

It’s Higashiyama from Johzenji! I haven’t put him in yet, but I think he’ll be the last (?) one I include! Oh! And for anyone who has asked about Sarukui too, but I’d just like to reiterate that he’s not a 山 (yama), he’s a 大和 (yamato), but he can be an honorary yama!! Σ(ノ°▽°)ノMaybe he’ll make an appearance soon!

The more yamas the merrier! If it helps, I sometimes shorten them to yama5 (or however many there are) or yama club so it’s easier to manage! 

What the Batfamily members smell like

Bruce: Sweat, leather, expensive cologne, that dry scent that tells you he’s carrying money in his pockets, scotch, envelopes. he likes to wear the best colognes because he has an image to keep, but when it’s just him he smells the way a father would smell. the batmobile smells like him so when he was dead his kids would sit in the car and just breathe it in so they’d never forget what he smelled like 

Dick: Fresh linen, fancy soaps Alfred bought for him, cereal, green apples, new car smell, hair gel, cheap wine, aftershave. he smells like one of those guys who wears ten different colognes to impress women, though in Dick’s case most of the time it’s just the way he naturally smells and it’s intoxicating 

Barbara: Lemons, cotton, honeysuckle, that familiar smell all computers seem to have, glossy magazines. she just smells really comforting and familiar, like that feeling you get when you hug your mom 

Jason: Cigarettes, sweat, gunpowder, leather jackets, the familiar alleys of Gotham City, freshly baked bread, buttery popcorn, dusty old books, cheap cologne. he’s got a very musky scent, but there are so many different aromas going on at the same time that he smells like an odd mix of all of them 

Cass: Jasmine shampoo, pine trees, the occasional faint scent of blood, the rubbery smell of bandages, cut flowers, scented candles, hot chocolate. she doesn’t wear perfume so she smells very natural 

Tim: Coffee grounds, printer ink, new book smell, the earthy scent of rain on hot pavement, sharpies. he smells very homey. he doesn’t usually wear cologne, but he smells just as appealing as Dick does without even trying. when you hug him you just want to stay in his arms and inhale his comforting scent as long as you can 

Stephanie: Cinnamon, strawberry shampoo, sugary perfume, coca-cola lip smackers, maple syrup, a warm sea breeze. she sprays on ten different perfumes at a time, so when people smell her they’re captivated by how many different aromas are going on at once. when you smell her it’s so inviting it just makes you want to be around her forever 

Damian: Batcow’s stables, butterscotch candies, the steel blade of his katana, paint from his artwork, pastel crayons, the earthy aroma of freshly dug soil. he always smells like Alfred’s garden, like dirt and green leaves and fresh vegetables. there’s always the slightest whiff of gingerbread too
