wes i saw

fun fact yall… 

you can draw women of color without completely hypermasculinizing them. you can draw trans women without completely hypermasculinizing them. 

thats right, there are even ways to draw strong and buff women of color and trans women without  hypermasculinizing them.

surprisingly all women of color and trans women aren’t all hairy and ripped, and the ones that are? are definitely uncomfortable with you fetishizing them.

went to the beach & discovered my inner Lorde

ways to make peridot have a “dorky” side without damaging all previous characterization:
-camp pining hearts (which was, admittedly one thing the series actually managed to pull off imo)
-occasionally deliberately peppering in earth slang she’s learning in between her articulate speech patterns
-have her geek out over tech!! isn’t she supposed to be a technician with lots of prior experience with machinery? or is she only suddenly that when the plot requires it
-conducting meticulous earth experiments on various topics, such as which organisms can fly, which conditions are ideal for the phenomenon of rain, etc., and recording all this data in a giant book/log/something else which documents everything she has learned on earth for reference for her to peruse through at later times
-having an affinity for wearing “shirts,” and usually doing so when (she thinks) no one is looking
-spending hours on end making advanced, convoluted contraptions for simple actions solely for the purpose of showing off her metal powers
-just. building robots and contraptions in general and treating them like her children instead of making w/e the hell those morps are
-drawing out complex diagrams for “where she’s going to put the star”/making rough sketches of a “crystal gem” outfit
basically redemption arc peridot; any peridot after that is a cursed shrieking gremlin child

Reminder that Voltron is not a romance

The writers do not have a requirement to put in any of your ships in their show.
Don’t get mad at writers for not including romance in a sci-fi kids show.
