re: Thoughts on fandom, shipping and misogyny in transfomers fandom
Obviously there’s gotta cases where someone wanted to explore being in an abusive straight relationship and then a healthy queer one. I can see many reasons why someone might do that.
But attacking female character love interests was a thing tbh.
Thoughts on fandom, shipping and misogyny in transfomers fandom
I’m glad in the transfomers fandom demonising a female character because she gets in the way of a m/m ship isn’t a thing anymore.
Or at least isn’t a thing enough I’ve seen it on any new fics.
It’s...not something I like bc yknow. Misogyny and it feels just ew.
Gonna stream Minecraft for a bit, I’m fiddling with Redstone, farms and whatnot.
Resource pack is called Jicklus.
The g1 cartoon continuity is like a sock with loads of holes in.
Some folks like to fill up the holes with their fics, others say ‘I’m gonna make five new socks and they’re all gay’
Birds of prey thoughts
I liked the fact the outfits weren’t supposed to be sexy for an assumed cis het male audience.
Harley wears heels but it’s because she would, not because that’s what female characters automatically wear.
The fight scenes looked great. They looked realistic in terms of how Harley rolled when she knocked someone down or blocked them.
The non linear narrative and general weirdness was good.
Overall it was fun to watch.
The zoo I'm making in Minecraft
I wanted to make a zoo of every non humanoid mob.
So far I have a small aquarium, a creeper enclosure and a small bee wood.
I'm half thinking of restarting and planning this project more. I've worked hard but I don't know what I'm putting where, even roughly.
Or what styles and blocks I'm using to tie the architecture together 🤔
It's fun how characters you role play with a group after a while become both beloved and there's just tonnes of in group jokes.
There's just a wonderful social dynamic to good character role play/group roleplay.
#ElderScrolls I think my characters biggest in game expense is buying new books to read.
I just love lore honestly XD
Visited the library of Vivec today, despite being a huge bookworm for ingame books, I somehow forgot to read any of them.
Thoughts I have on the Pixar Cars movies
The 1st and 3rd Cars movies are actually fun imo? So long as you don’t question the logic of the film universe.
The 2nd cars movie makes me what was going on at Pixar in terms of plot decisions. The spy theme feels like it was chasing a trend because it’s such a weird departure from the 1st movies themes.
The 3rd movie could have easily been the 2nd movie because it fits thematically with the 1st movie.
#ElderScrolls in morrowind there’s so many character greetings like
‘what do you want outlander?’
And I want to answer
‘You to stop blocking this corridor!’
NPCs seem to block doorways, corridors and at one point, me picking mushrooms for no good reason XP
Racism / colonialism / elder scrolls meta
I think I wanna research if there’s any poc perspectives on the elderscrolls. How race/racism related subjects are handled in the game lore and such.
Because it’s clear the Scrolls games take design and such influence from various non white cultures.
But I question how sensitively this is done—if it’s just mostly appropriation or stereotyping.
That and the themes of colonialism present in the games.
Food mention / silly elder scrolls post
The Twine coding language Harlow makes me think of Haskill from shivering isle.
Twine coding language Haskill means the Chamberlain of Sheogorath will snark at you while coding. Sometimes your laptop might randomly turn into cheese.
Plugs, a queer system.
They/them or he/him.
This is my account for rambling about games, films, books and other things I like.
Currently that’s Elder Scrolls, mainly Morrowind.
