Do you think wearing makeup is anti feminist? Because I consider myself a feminist, but I've had several people tell me I can't wear makeup and be a feminist. I don't think I should have to defend myself over something I enjoy doing.
I wear so much makeup it’s probably ridiculous. Anyone who tells you that to be a feminist you can’t wear makeup up, or feminine clothing or *insert absurd example here* literally needs to stop. There is no rule book with a dress code for feminism. A feminist respects people’s choices for their bodies as long as no one is being hurt. Wear as much makeup as you want! Heck do one of those 100 layers of makeup challenges and tell them to leave you be!
I've been reading your Daycare AU and I can't help but wonder... Who was Katsuki's childrens' mother? You don't have to tell me if it's revealed in the story, since I'm not that far into it.
I’m happy you’re reading my Bakudeku Daycare AU fic. I hope you’re enjoying! :D However, the topic of Katsuki’s childrens’ biological mother is still a secret to be revealed in the story. Right now, I only talked about the biological mother of Katsuki’s two kids Hanabi and Ketteiki once, but more shall be revealed soon. Thank you for asking though and I hope you enjoy the further chapters! -Unoutan
i think my family might be a little sick of me talking about "that author i follow on the internet" but i just can't stop because your stories, both fictional and autobiographical, are always the best. i don't know why people feel the need to accuse you of lying about them. even if you were (which i know you aren't) what's wrong with just enjoying an entertaining story? the internet is not a truth-telling competition
Mostly, I think it’s a combination of trying to seem cool and sour grapes–a mix of “why does this person get to be ‘Internet famous’ and I don’t?” and “nothing that cool ever happens to me.”
Here is a secret: things that are that cool happen to everyone. It’s just a matter of paying attention to the world and taking advantage of opportunities, and then learning how to retell the events in an entertaining, still accurate manner.
ok here's the thing. i really love you and your blog, i love your aesthetic and your characters, but Plance makes me SO uncomfy because of the age Pidge is supposed to be (under 18, Lance being at least 18). i don't want to unfollow you after all this time but being on mobile, i can't blacklist the ship ;~; and i don't wanna tell you not to enjoy the ship, that's mean of me. what do you suggest i do?
Firstly, I’m flattered that you enjoy my blog so much. And I appreciate your coming to me personally so we can work this out like adults (even though I have no idea how old you actually are, but I digress)rather than taking part in the already overwhelming amount of fandom drama. So thank you for that.
Secondly, as a Pidgance shipper myself - and somebody who absolutely does NOT condone adult/child relationships - please allow me a second of your time to first attempt to solve the issue at it’s source, so there’s a possibility you may not have to work around it at all.
See, the big problem with the Pidgance ship is less in the ship itself, and more in the way that some fans tend to inaccurately interpret it.
You said above that the reason Pidgance as a ship makes you uncomfortable is solely because Lance is “at least 18″. But the thing is, there’s no supporting info for that claim. The most we’ve been given in terms of ‘specifics’ is that he’s in his “late teens”. In fact, it’s actually much more likely that he might be 16-17, at MOST. Which, in my opinion, is much more believable, because he appears to be somewhere in the high-school age region.
Pidge is, at the youngest, 14. That’s not canon, per se, but it’s the general consensus. A 14-year-old is still considered a teenager and-as I’ve stated before-is actually the age of the average high-school freshman in the US. So, they’re both within the high-schooler age range. They could be, at most, 5 years apart (which is honestly not that big a gap to start) in season 1, but it’s more plausible that the difference is closer to 2-3 years. Now consider how that gap will shrink as they age. Because the “teenager” age range is so small and such a crucial point for a person’s development, we tend to view the age gaps as being bigger than they actually are. Sure, when she’s 14, Pidge seems like a child still, but in less than a year she’ll be 15…which is within the age range of the average disney heroine who- more often than not- has an older love interest. See what I’m getting at here?
Me, personally, I don’t even much like the idea of Pidge and Lance getting together until several seasons have passed and they’ve both had a chance to mature some. And by the time I’d like to see something happen between them, they’d both be well old enough. So the fact that she’s (widely believed to be) 14 at this point in the series really isn’t even relevant to me. It’s not a big enough gap to be concerning in my opinion. If she were 12 or younger (or if Lance was older than we can justly assume he is), I would absolutely be opposed to it, but that’s not the case. And given the fact that my own parents are TEN years apart, I think 2-5 years is, honestly, not a big deal.
So, I hope that’s helped you see the ship in a less discomforting light.
Note:The point of this analysis really wasn’t to make you like the ship (although that’d be a cool result), it’s only meant to clear up some of the big misconstrued facts surrounding the ship and its legitimacy. Also, to reiterate the fact that I DO NOT support ships that consist of a child and an adult, and if that were the case with Pidgance, I WOULD NOT ship it. I’ve done my research, no morals are being compromised in the shipping of these characters.
However, if for any reason you still are strongly opposed to this ship, that’s fine. My cup of tea doesn’t have to be yours. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot that I can do in the way of helping you avoid it while still enjoying my content, tumblr is fairly limited in that respect. I could recommend that you track some of my personalized tags so you can be aware of when something of a particular theme is posted? Maybe bookmark my blog’s tag searches so you can just pop in for updates? Or, you could email the staff and see if they can help with your mobile blacklisting issue. That’s all I can really think of to work around the problem, love, I’m sorry I can’t be of more help.
I just wanted to tell you how brilliant Always Human is. I'm getting close to the end and it's making me feel depressed but I can't stop reading. The art is unlike anything I've seen before and I wish they had more WEBTOONs like it. This story has me feeling a very special way everytime I finish a chapter and I don't want the feeling to go away when I read the final one. Thanks for this story please continue writing
Awww, thank you so much, you’re very kind <3
I do hope you will enjoy the ending - I think that with a satisfying ending the feelings don’t go away, they just just curl up inside your heart and keep you warm forever. Hopefully I was able to do something like that :)
And I definitely, definitely want to continue writing. I have so many stories I can’t wait to tell!
Can I confess something?? I feel like at this point, the YOI fandom already chock full of headcannons and localization, also there are some writers whose stories i already followed, i feel like their writing became more... mechanical? Cynical? It's.. like just a checklist of plots and pandering stuff (thank god it's over). There are a lot of new stuff that only use character tropes and tottaly overplays it to the point they ignored the characterization in the show. Sorry, i'm ranting so much,
I feel like I deserve this ask because I complain about characterization all the time, and that is fair. But anon, I’m going to tell you something you aren’t going to enjoy, and that is this:
if you don’t like how people write your favorite characters, write them yourself.
Now I agree it is much nicer to just read, to pick and chose out of an unending smorgasbord of content. But if you don’t like the menu, it’s a hell of a lot more useful to get into the kitchen and start cooking. Fandom isnt a restaurant, it’s a potluck.
What does a guy mean when he says "What are your expectations with respect of appreciation for your time?" Is he asking if I expect cash or gifts? Because I wanna tell him I expect cash but don't know how to go about it since I can't exactly decode what he said /:
Hi! Thanks for reaching out to me!
This guy you’re talking to has phrased his question rather questionably! I can see why you would hesitate and feel confused; but yes, I do think he is asking you to toss out your desires in this relationship, whether he’s talking about shopping or just straight up cash. You can say something like, “ What I desire in this arrangement, (besides having fun and enjoying ourselves together), would be a little financial assistance. I, [ Insert personal reason or motivation for the money here], and would greatly appreciate it if you can support me in my efforts. I think [ Insert per meet or per month allowance here] would be suitable for me. Is that fine for you?”
So, I'm a firm asexual and before you think I'm scolding you or insulting you for your smut because of my sexuality, let me finish. As an asexual, sex like... repels me. It does and I admit it, but the way you write is so beautiful. You capture so many details and it's something I seriously enjoy despite my sexuality. I can't express how amazed I was with you when I stumbled upon your blog. Your work is amazing, don't let anyone tell you otherwise, dear. I love your work. Have a wonderful day!!
omg this was seriously so sweet! but also know that i would never judge anyone for their sexuality ever!! i’m glad you find enjoyment in some of my fics, it means a lot! maybe it’s a possibility that (totally not trying to assume anything here!!! only making the observation bc my fics tend to be very angsty / fluffy / emotional, so i’m kind of just stemming from that lol) maybe is it that you enjoy the romantic aspects of relationships but just not the sex part? i’ve actually met a few people who identify as asexual and we’ve talked openly, and some of them explain how asexual does not necessarily equal aromantic. they enjoy the nice parts of having a companion / permanent fixture in their lives, just not the sexual aspects. but it’s totally okay if that’s not what you enjoy either! if it makes you happy then that’s all that really matters! have a wonderful day as well, lovely!!
I'm having an incredibly shitty day. I hope yours is going better than mine. I also miss Clexa terribly...would you just tell me any kind of body language fun fact type things about Clexa please? Anything that comes to mind. It would cheer me up.
Awww baby boo I’m so sorry. I can’t think of any body language stuff off the top of my head but I do have something I’ve never discussed.
So, do you remember many folks in the fandom calling city of light Lexa “not real” and saying she was only of Clarke’s mind? Well that’s not possible. Clarke never, ever saw ALIE. If Becca - or for that matter Lexa - wasn’t “real” then how the hell did Clarke see Becca. How would she have made up what Becca looked like if she never saw ALIE? So that means that Lexa’s consciousness is truly within the flame. That a part of her is really still alive. (Wait was the flame destroyed? Where is it, who has it?). But I saw so many saying that the Lexa we knew was gone. How’s that? Her physical form is gone but she still exists, in the flame…
