Watching TV & Thoughts :

Hi Hi Y’all,

Early today I read the spoilers for one of the manhwas I was reading- The Way To Protect The Female Lead’s Older Brother. It had such a great start and I loved the premise. Then I read the spoilers and I become the classic me of ‘whyyyyyy‘. The sad part was that I really needed something amazing to keep me happy. It’s one of my ways I fight my depression. But seeing in my mind ruined awesomeness the wall that holds back the floodgates shakes.

Then I saw the newest episode of WandaVision. It was the first Marvel Tv show I was actually enjoying. It’s not like I was expecting much from the next episode but this time my expectations were destroyed in a good way. It was amazing! The entire series has been great. Whoever has shit to say about the ‘slow-burn’ is nothing but an asshole. Truly, I the notorious DC is better advocate is declaring that Marvel won this round. Everything from the sitcom reaction of grief from Wanda and the potential of Vision returning to the main MCU.

BUT EVEN BETTER THAN THAT… BILLY & TOMMY HAVE ARRIVED.

In case, you don’t know they are actually really amazing young heroes in the Marvel comics. Billy, codename Wiccan, is a gay icon whose powers may be stronger than his own mother. Tommy, codename Speed, is fast like his Uncle Pietro.

The four characters are some of my favorite heroes in the comics and seeing their successful introduction and potential within the MCU is fluttering my little black heart. The idea of a Young Avengers is exciting, even more so if we get a Kid Loki. It is like a substance stronger than cement at binding my wall back together.

My coping method is working again~

I got some inspiration back and I feel like I can do my thang. My writing thang. That one thang people say is still my talent. That one thang people say has stayed with me through everything.

Needless to say, I am very glad for WandaVision. I may even finally remember that there are things I am good at and can do.

What a morning,

Hi Hi Y’all,

Here it is. The post on Dreams Askew! Well, sorry to disappoint you, and myself, but we haven’t gotten to it yet! We got so caught up in the joint character creation part that we ran out of time for our actual session. So I present you the Dreams Askew Character I will FINALLY get to be playing : Robyn “Rob” McFeever – the Bigender Raven & leader of the Pina Coladas.

Here Are The Key Points To Include were: being a bigender raven, red eyes, fucked-up hair, gloves, overalls, support from a ghost and their associated sobriety cult  and what 2 talents they have from a list (infirmary and guns).

That transformed into this character. I would describe the hatchling as an individual with a small round face, large owl like red eyes, a tattoo of a lemon where a 3rd eye should be, red apple earrings, overalls that include one shoulder on/ one shoulder off, a giant image of a 1/2 peeled banana a large pouch below it one leg having a flare bottom and the other shredded off at the knee, a green scarf with yellow pineapples, an under black shirt that is actually sleeved on one side with a tight red pair of gloves and not sleeved on the other side to reveal a fruit themed sleeve tattoo and large steam punk/worker-esque worker glove and purple boots with coconuts on them.

The ghost became Barnabus “Barnie” The Peeping ghost. At the moment he is eternally trapped wearing the bottom half of a Barnie the Dinosaur mascot costume, an ironic t-shirt, surfer dude necklace, an over the shoulder Barnie bag and is bald.

My favorite last minute creative decision was making the sobriety group ‘The Pina Coladas’ actually a front for the local cult. Where my character used them to move into the fruit, vegetables and general produce area of the market area and create absolutely safe territory in an uncertain terrain. Somehow, making them all worship Rob as a savior/messiah.

So, yep… That’s Dreams Askew character creation guys! I’ll try to get artwork soon 😉

Hi Hi Y’all ~

So, my Dungeon and Dragon’s Campaign has had its session canceled a few times in a row now. Nothing serious or detrimental. However, in its place this week one of our members has us playing Dreams Askew. Wow, I was not prepared for such an idea. Might as well give it a go.

I have no idea who I’ll be or how it will go, but I’ll let you know next week how it went.

Dreams Askew – Gauntlet Con

On JK Rowling And Future Harry Potter Decisions:

Hi Hi Y’all!

It’s been awhile. My bad. Been having to deal with a lot of things due to Corona and the world at the moment. Wasn’t ignoring you. I am sad though that my first non fan fiction post in awhile is about this topic: JK Rowling’s stance on the trans community.

Many of you know I am a pretty big fan of the Harry Potter universe and consider myself a proud Slytherin. On my site there are a range of Harry Potter related fan fictions. However, there is no way I cannot face what has been said.

So far, my thoughts on this matter can be broken down into three main arguments:

(1) The importance of Freedom of Speech and Expression.

(2) The separation of Creation from Creator.

(3) The need for Opposing Thought for Free Discourse.

However, even separate from the arguments on these, there is the need to decide if my own values and beliefs will be compromised by this stance.

What I have decided is this:

On my Harry Potter Fan Fiction page I will continue my story. I think it is extremely important for me to finish what I started. There is this wonderful story that is waiting to be told and I am adamant about telling it. However, I will continue the inclusion of LGBTQ characters planned within it despite the initial creators opinions. I believe this is important to show that a magical universe that is built on discovery and wonder is by definition inclusive of our LGBTQ community.

Secondly, I will decide with my co-author whether or not we shall separate our story from the Harry Potter Universe or not.

Lastly, I will continue to show free emotional support towards the Harry Potter universe for those involved in it and its positivism. However, I shall no longer contribute in any economic support to it. Basically, I am saying I will share memes and comment on people who have received love from it but will not buy or advertise for any merchandise or Harry Potter goods anymore.

I hope y’all can respect my decision with this matter. Please, treat those who are working with me on this with respect and care because I will not tolerate any harassment to those individuals.

As always, I appreciate you all.
