    • RWBY Volume 5, Chapter 8: Alone Together

      1 week ago

      disneydcfan Ace of Hearts

      This was by far my favorite episode of RWBY ever! Like holy crap, there was soooo much amazing stuff going on, we finally got to hear Yang open up about Blake, got a little more insight into how she held herself together throughout her childhood, and we got a lot of insight on Weiss's own family, as well! It was so nice seeing how far Weiss has come from receiving next to no affection from her own family, learning how to take care of herself, starting out as a cold and closed-off person in Volume 1 to this loving, open, affectionate person that she is now in Volume 5, and I just love, love, love her more than words can say. She is by far my favorite character in the entire series, and I can just relate to her so much. Stay amazing Weiss, you beautiful cinnamon roll, you!


      On another note, Ilia and the WF started moving in on Blake and her family! Can't say we weren't already expecting that, but what I wasn't expecting was for Ilia to confess that she had feelings for Blake, thus making her the first canonically confirmed LGBT+ character in RWBY and I couldn't be happier! I do think there's a redemption arc in Ilia's future, as far as she's fallen. She still doesn't like to hurt others, she still hasn't completely gotten over Blake, and she still doesn't want to hurt Blake and her family, but she doesn't see another way out at this point. What she needs is for Blake to introduce Ilia to her friends, to RWY, and show her that there are Humans out there who support Faunus Rights and are just as willing to fight for those rights! I really, really don't want to see Ilia being killed off, because honestly, it'd break my heart, and I don't think I can handle seeing another queer character being killed off one of the shows I love. Too many years of that bull, it's time for our LGBT characters to live and prosper and be happy just like everyone else! 


      Also noticed how similar Ghira is to Tukson. Same hair and eye color, similar hair patterns, same Faunus trait (claws), both some type of cat Faunus. Oh! And both were ex-members of the White Fang! I really hope Ghira and Kali both pull through, but I'm starting to fear that at least one of them aren't going to make it out alive. Poor Blake, I'm not sure she can handle yet another tragedy like this in her life. Here's to hoping Sun and Blake will get to them in time!

      ...for giving us the most consistently best volume of RWBY so far! Everything about this volume has been absolutely incredible, from the animation, to the writing, to the voice acting... This is absolutely the best volume so far, in my opinion, and I think every single person involved in this series has improved so much and come so far, and I just want to thank all of Rooster Teeth for making this series happen and creating one of the most captivating shows I've had the pleasure of watching this whole year. 


      Thank you so much, Rooster Teeth! And thank you, Monty Oum, for creating this series, for giving us these characters and these stories, and making RWBY possible. It's truly a blessing to be able to watch this series, these characters, and their stories grow more and more each year.

    • Steampunk! Sun Wukong Cosplay Progress #1

      1 month ago

      So for those of you who don't know, I'm currently working on a Sun Wukong steampunk style cosplay. This is the original design I created for inspiration, though some parts are subject to change:

      And here's a little bit of my current progress:

      tumblr_oyp7b0en_Rt1vkcsopo2_500.jpg


      tumblr_oyp7b0en_Rt1vkcsopo5_500.jpg


      So far, I've got my wig, tail, tunic, pants, and belts. I'm still waiting on the shoes to arrive so I can start getting to work on those (I'm going to replace the black buttons with yellow and I'll be painting the toes of the shoes yellow as well to match Sun's color scheme a bit more), and I've got the faux leather for the gauntlets (the gloves in these pics are just temporary until the gauntlets are finished, they will be red like his original gauntlets). I've also got some chains and zippers I want to add to the pants. I feel like they're not "steampunky" enough yet. So the pants are probably going to be getting the most work by the time it's completely ready for Tora-Con in April.

    • Another Stupid Character Rant

      3 months ago

      disneydcfan Ace of Hearts

      I feel like I'm never allowed to have a negative opinion about a popular character, ever, no matter how much negative canon content there is to support my opinion, and no matter how much that character's behavior resembles that of some of the abusive people in my life. Just because a crap ton of people like that character, I'm suddenly the bad guy for not liking what I see. Why are people so willing to defend the characters they find "cute" and jump down the throats of those that don't necessarily meet their views of cute, attractive, or worthy of attention? It's so annoying and so invalidating to people who have had a history of being abused and traumatized specifically because people defended harmful and toxic people with those negative traits -___-

    • You ever get that feeling....

      disneydcfan Ace of Hearts

      ....that your mind is just not working up to its full capacity? I mean, of course the vast majority of us only use a small percentage of our brains, but that's not what I'm getting at. What I mean is that sometimes I'll be talking about a specific subject and I feel like I could have a really in-depth conversation about it with a lot of insight and understanding, but other times when faced with that same subject, I feel like my brain just kind of shuts off, like my capacity to once understand it has somehow disappeared.


      Today, I just feel like my mind isn't clicking at all. I was discussing something with my friend that I'm usually really understanding about, something I never questioned before, but this time, I just couldn't wrap my head around it. Something just isn't adding up, and I don't know why. Am I losing touch with my intellectuality, or am I just having an off day?

    • Persona 4, Ouran High School Host Club, and Gender Identity

      6 months ago

      disneydcfan Ace of Hearts

      Okay, so I just binge-watched two absolutely incredible anime this week, both of which have at least one character in the main cast that challenges the gender binary that is so very often thrust upon us in most societies. I just want to talk about these characters for a bit, and how important I think it is that more genderqueer/gender nonconforming characters like these are represented in popular media. 


      (WARNING: MASSIVE SPOILERS ABOUT PERSONA 4 AND OURAN HIGH SCHOOL HOST CLUB AHEAD)


      -------------------------------------------------------


      First, let's talk about Persona 4. The main plot focuses around a group of 8 individuals whose worlds are turned upside down when they are thrust into an alternate universe on the inside of their TVs - yes, that's right, inside their TVs. In this world, each character meets an alternate version of themselves that represents an over-exaggerated secret side of themselves that they are either too afraid or ashamed to let the world see. Each character must defeat this version of themselves and learn to accept them as a part of themselves before they are able to leave the TV world.


      One character in particular stood out to me among the rest, as we learn that Naoto Shirogane, a.k.a. "The Detective Prince", who has been living their life as a boy for years, is revealed by their alternate self to actually be biologically female. We learn that Naoto decided to disguise themself as a boy long ago when they realized the only way the Police would take them seriously was if they rejected their biological sex and changed their attitude to appear more masculine and adult. While Naoto ends up accepting their biological gender, allowing their friends to refer to them as "she/her", Naoto continues to bind their chest and dress in more masculine clothing (including wearing a boys' school uniform), and they continue to speak in a lower, mostly androgynous voice. While in the animated series, Naoto is "supposed to" openly identify as female after they face their alternate self, in the original video game, Naoto continues to ask the protagonist of the series to refer to them as "he/him", and they are made visually uncomfortable when forced into a situation that exposes/accentuates their assigned gender. 


      The thing about Naoto is that while every part of their personality hints at them being a transgender man, the story itself is still written to push Naoto into accepting the female side of themself, and because of this, I can't "canonically" call Naoto transgender. However, everything evidenced in their character still leads me to believe that Naoto is still not actually all that accepting of their assigned gender even after they admit that their alternate self is a part of them, so I'm opting to headcanon that Naoto is, in fact, nonbinary, or gender nonconforming. 


      While Naoto is only actually genderqueer between the eyes (i.e. while there are absolutely hints, direct "Word of God" contradicts those hints otherwise), Ouran High School Host Club actually has a canonically gender nonconforming character named Haruhi Fujioka who has stated canonically in all adaptations that she (Haruhi is often referred to as "she/her" by her close friends and family who know her biological gender) doesn't have a gender preference, and believes that true gender is something that comes from inside a person. 


      -------------------------------------------------------


      "Listen, Senpai, I don't really care whether you guys recognize me as a boy or a girl. In my opinion it's more important for a person to be recognized for who they are rather than for what sex they are."


      Haruhi Fujioka is first mistaken for a cisgender boy after accidentally stumbling upon the Host Club while searching for a quiet place to study. Because of her small frame, short hairstyle, androgynous voice, and baggy clothing that she borrowed from her father, the boys in the club originally mistake Haruhi as a boy interested in their services, however, upon trying to escape the boys, Haruhi is backed into an expensive vase (8 million yen/800,000 USD) that topples over and breaks. The boys originally hire Haruhi as their personal errand boy in order to pay off her debt from breaking the vase, but after seeing how natural and popular Haruhi is with their female guests, the boys make Haruhi an offer to become an official host, which she accepts (if only to pay off her debt sooner).


      At the end of the first episode, the boys discover Haruhi is biologically female after walking in on her while changing clothes, and while the boys initially make a big deal out of it, Haruhi quickly tells them that she doesn't mind being referred to as a boy, and that gender doesn't really matter to her. Although the boys continue to refer to her as "she" from then on, they accept her as one of the boys and even go out of their way to make sure the school doesn't find out about her biological gender during mandatory physical exams. Haruhi continues to live her life as a boy throughout the rest of the school year, only ever really wearing "feminine" clothes when she's at home or out running errands, and even then, she sometimes opts to wear a baggy t-shirt and shorts instead. 


      While I won't get into the whole plot of the series, I will say that the way the writers handled Haruhi's indifference to gender is probably one of the most positive representations of a genderqueer character I have ever seen in modern media, and I am absolutely in love with the series for allowing Haruhi to just openly be herself. 


      As more and more children, teenagers, and young adults start to come to terms with their own gender identities, I think it's super important for them to be able to see characters like Naoto and Haruhi and realize that it's okay to identify as something other than the gender you were born with, even if that gender isn't within the binary, or even if you're not exactly sure what yet you want to be.

        I like it! The patterns are pretty neat :) However, just my personal opinion, I would make the blue vertical triangles extend to the top and bottom spikes of the star so it looks more "balanced". It's still good how it is, though!
