(They suggest you sign up for the funsies classes first, since as a declared major you’ll technically get into your course classes no matter what, but FUCK THAT. Y’ALL ALWAYS HAVE ME TAKING DISCUSSION SECTIONS AT THE ASS CRACK OF DAWN. NOPE. NUH-UH. KISSMYASS. Fuck the fun classes and unit fillers. Those can wait until Phase II of sign ups.)
IDEC HOW YOU SUGGEST I SIGN UP FOR CLASSES BERKELEY, I DO WHAT I WANT
#CAN’T BE TAMED
And I’m still working it out to be two days a week?
Bow before me.
This isn’t really about feminism. But it kinda is at the same time. I guess this is about perception. I’ve been enjoying some shows with a lot of great ladies in them. I even drew a top badass of 2012 drawing. I love my ladies. I love them all.
I’m a bit disappointed that a lot of people out there take some of these badass ladies, like Korra and Katniss, and draw/write fanworks where the characters are weak and dominated by their significant other. It’s like, as soon as their significant other kisses them, their uterus quivers and suddenly they can’t remember how to toss a punch.
Now, I don’t have anything against dudes being the dominant energy in a relationship. I tend to prefer relationships where both parties switch sides at being the dominant one, but at the same time, girls being the lovey-dovey ones that are cared for most of the time doesn’t bother me in itself, when the character’s personality works with it.
Some girls are more… for lack of a better word, the stereotypical “girly”. They speak softly, are graceful, like cooking and cleaning and being pretty. This does not make these girls less badass. What makes a girl badass is her determination, her ability to be true, to live well, and to be generally awesome at whatever motivates her to be herself. Fluttershy is shy, but she is still badass, as badass as Korra, as Rainbow dash. A housewife is as awesome as a time traveling girl from the future with a gun (i’m looking at you, River Song). As long as both stay true to their hearts and have a sharp mind and clear motivations.
It takes all girls to make the world, and all girls are magnificent. Just like all boys are awesome. May they love sports or anything else.
What bothers me is when fanworks take a character’s personality and tosses it out a window to fit a fantasy, to fit what is right according to a stereotype. I’ve seen a lot of great Legend of Korra fanworks, but also a few that made me sad. Because Korra was acting as a damsel in distress. Not that Korra will never need to be rescued, or helped. We all need help once in a while. But she certainly won’t throw herself in the guy’s arm and praise the gods that he’s around to fight the big bad equalists and top her in bed. We all need comfort, we all need help, and guidance. But we don’t magically change personalities when we get it.
So, fans, when a girl is strong, keep her strong. When a girl is introverted, keep her introverted. A good artist should be able to identify and expand upon a character’s personality.
That said, I had fun drawing Korra swooning the crap out of Mako.
Important commentary is important.
“What bothers me is when fanworks take a character’s personality and tosses it out a window to fit a fantasy, to fit what is right according to a stereotype.”
They said exactly what I wanted!

YES. YES TO EVERYTHING. EVERYTHING OP SAID.
Everyone knows I don’t subscribe to preemptive shipping but I just can’t with Makorra, so I decided to switch it up? This’ll come back and bite me later I’m guessing.
I just really hope Asami isn’t a total dud and actually develops some substance. I worry about these things a lot e_e;
Anyway, here’s some Mako x Asami. Obvious color guesswork.
CAN YOU SHIP CHARACTER DESIGNS?
YES THIS IS PERFECT.
(this is my first impression ship leaning FO’SHO.)
Black Superheroines. I know what I’m going to be for the next couple of Halloweens!
Ant (the only one who had her own series)
And Pulsar got to lead her own team eventually right? She does turn into Photon from NextWave or do I have that wrong?
I have never in my life heard of Debrii before
but I think I’m in love with this character.
…BUT I SUDDENLY WANT IT SO VERY BADLY
THEY WOULD BE UNSTOPPABLE
EVERYTHING I’VE EVER WANTED
Oh my gahd.
If Tangled were set in India :)
