  • Drinking: tea, because it's still cold af -_-
And more importantly, why exactly do we romantize it...?

I mean, I'm guilty of growing up watching "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and adoring the relationship between Angel/Buffy. Even though Buffy was only 15 when they first met. But then again, I was younger than 16 when I started watching that show, so she was like... old, to me.

Then, later on, I started watching "Vampire Diaries" and found Stefan/Elena very cute, even though he's in the three-digit age-count and she was 17. But hey, I was 18 when I started watching that, so was easy rooting for the girl around my age.

Now. Multiple reasons I'm bringing this up.

For one; I started writing a Calypso/Percy story and originally wanted for it to take place when they first met. But then I did the math and holy Hades, Percy's 14 when they meet and she falls in love with him. He's a gods damn kid. And it's not even that you can say "It's because it's Percy", because later on Calypso moved on to 15 years old Leo.
And, honestly, as much as I ship the hell out of the 17 years olds with their immortal lovers... I find those two to three years to make a world of difference because a 14 years old is still a CHILD. You're a millennia years old woman seducing little boys, what the hell is wrong with you, Calypso?

Which brings me to the second point at hand. They're CHILDREN. Literal children. And I'm not even talking about the from country to country varying age of consent, I'm mainly talking about physicality.

I just finished my three week internship at a high school and its basically been the first time since *I* was 16 that I was in a room with 30 sixteen years olds. And holy Hades, they're kids. They got the lanky, awkward bodies that they still need to fully grow into, the girls don't yet have the curves they will gain one day, they have acne and kind of embarrassing stereotype styles of clothing.
Even though it might sound patronizing, but damn I wanted to hand most of them a lollipop and pat their hair when they answered a question correctly, while thinking about damn brats when they behaved like the boundaries testing kids they are.

That.

That is where I see the problem.
Because Sarah Michelle Gellar was 20 when she played 15 years old Buffy Summers.
Nina Dobrev was 20 when she played 17 years old Elena Gilbert.

I mean, you can play that game with literally every teen drama show too. Look up how old the actors are VS what they're supposed to be on the show. ALL the 16 and 17 years olds are portrayed by people in their early to mid - or in some extreme cases even late - twenties. You see all those gorgeous mid-twenties, with sixpacks and thickly trained arms, girls with perfect waists and thighs and asses and boobs.
They're... adults. I mean, again not talking consent but body. I feel like physically, you kinda reach the It when you're 20. There's not really much more changing after that. You're done. Backed perfectly.

That is *not* what 16 and 17 years olds look like. They're not done yet - and that is perfectly fine, because that's how the body works, for Hades' sake.

But, personally, I kind of... forgot that. I grew up watching all those gorgeous, perfect "17" years olds and still when I watch any drama show at all, there are still all those gorgeous, perfect, way-too-old actors. It genuinely made me forget that that is not how 17 years olds look like. I was really-really surprised after my first week at the internship, looking around and seeing all those REAL 17 years olds.

And there's three problems with that, to be honest.

Because I'm 25 and I think something should be wrong with a person my age if they think 16/17 years olds are hot or okay to date. But a 118 years old vampire... who's nearly five times my age, they're sooo into the 16/17 years olds. And that's kind of very, very wrong. That *should* be seen as wrong, because most of society would already find it rather weird if a 50 years old would make a move on a 16 years old.
But since the vampire physically looks like a teen himself, it's totally fine. Because it's not like shit should be about mentality and experience in life and all. Totally.
And since both are cast as mid twenties and look like adults, it's totally fine.

The other problem being something I semi-noticed when I myself was 17. "Damn, they're all so perfect and gorgeous. Why am I not that way?". Teenagers are the most impressionable group of human beings we have and... instead of building up their self-confidence as we should as adults and guides, instead, we put those perfect unachievable images up and project the idea that that is what they should look like, even though it's downright physically impossible because those actors are older and more matured.
How about we start casting real, actual teenagers to play teenagers? Project a more achievable body image. Be realistic. Also, seriously, in some cases it's just downright ridiculous and unbelievable what age some of these actors are supposed to be in a show.

There is another aspect to this that I like to think about. The vampires are always very adamant not to turn their human lovers, right? Even though they themselves were turned at 17, so they shall look the same as their human lovers. But... then the human partner ages. And... Yes, the actor of the vampire also ages with the years of a TV, that is kind of the problem because we forget that technically, as a vampire, that character wouldn't age.
It's something I always think when rewatching Buffy, because holy Hades, Angel was such a stick-figure awkward young man in that first season of Buffy. And *that* is what he should have looked like when he was heatedly making out with those mid-twenties and end-twenties by the time he got his own show - and *that* would have been weird and awkward to watch. Alas, actors age.

So. I dunno what the point is of this, aside from me being apalled by Calypso getting it on with 14/15 years old children and me being pissed off that Hollywood is still selling mid-twenties as teens. This was mainly just ranting because I had a five-minute laughing fit when watching the "Doctor Who" spin-off "Class" where they put those mid-twenties that look like nearly-thirties and say they're teens and worst of all take a twenty years old to play a 14 years old (which was the part where I was hollering with laughter because that chick looks older than she physically is and has NO ressemblance to a 14 years old).

Phoe out!

Alien!Lance
Okay, so I did an unplanned thing! :D

This is Lance in his alien form, from my story "The Lion's Pride" (which can be found on AO3 and FFNet)!
He's a Bast from the planet Bast Beta Tau in the story, also an omega since it's a Shiro/Keith/Lance ABO-verse. And, as described in the story by Keith;

Lance had turned blue. Not figuratively because he had put his foot in his mouth again, but literally. Short, blue, shiny fur started covering his whole body, his hair turned a dark sapphire-blue, two triangular ears poking out from between the hair. And now that they were in the med bay and out of their armor, Keith also got to see an at least a meter long blue tail that turned lighter in color until the tip was actually snowy-white. There were strange dark-blue patterns all over Lance's fur.

I felt the need to draw him after all. Alpha!Keith and alpha!Shiro are gonna be VERY enthralled by the blue kitten. Or, lemme put it in Shiro's words from the next chapter (preeeview! :D);

“You're so pretty”, whispered Shiro in awe as he stared at Lance. “Pretty blue kitty...”

“...Maybe I should have given him less of that drug”, mused Pidge concerned.

Lance blushed a dark purple and ducked his head, ears flickering a little while Shiro tilted his head and reached a hand out for Lance. “Can I pet the pretty kitty, Keith?”

  • Listening to: the Soundtrack of "Ludwig 2" on endless repeat
  • Reading: A Treatise of Human Nature, by David Hume
  • Watching: Shadowhunters
  • Drinking: tea, because it's cold and it's snowing -_-
The following is a rant about Shadowhunters... because I started writing this in the description of the fanart I just posted and it kinda... turned out waaay too long for a description... So I moved it here~

Sooo, there was the movie, like a couple years back, right? Riding that wave of "Harry Potter ended and now we gotta dash out one teenage novel series adaptation after the other!" - and unlike Twilight, the Hunger Games and whateverthefuck came after that, I actually really enjoyed the Mortal Instruments! Obviously, that meant this was literally the only teenage novel series adapatation that then got canned, because... *looks at Percy Jackson* that's just what happens when I enjoy something :D

Anyway, when I watched that movie I, of course, instantly found a ship to sail. And that there was no second movie was really devastating on that account. Then the show was announced and I got reeeaaally happy - because, hey, it's been a few years but I definitely remembered three things about it!
1. It's my favorite genre - supernatural/fantasy
2. I shipped the hell out of the blonde cutie and his so-badly-in-love-with-him best friend
3. I actually liked the female lead character, something that... hasn't happened since Buffy, I think

I was sooo vastly disappointed the first time I watched Shadowhunters. Like, seriously, it totally bummed me out.
1. They didn't do a very good job on explaining how the world works and explaining its lore; I was stumbling a lot and over the months of it airing, I already forgot half of it again by the time the season finale came around
2. What the fuck, why does the so-badly-in-love-with-the-blonde-cutie get a boyfriend? And literally the entire fandom seems to only ship them together...? I'm... not getting my fix of my OTP like, not at all...
3. I fucking hate Clary's actress. She's the worst I've seen in a long, long, looong time. Such bad acting, such awful delivery of lines. Just painful to watch and actually the main reason why this show disappointed me - because liking and relating to the main character is THE most important thing about ANY show for me personally.

I was actually not going to watch season 2 at all and just, you know, forget this exists. Then it reached Germany and got a dubbed version and my parents saw a trailer and even my father - who has... in the history of ever... never watched a fantasy show with me and my mother before - wanted to watch it.
Who knew? It fixed problem number 3! The German dub is really great, especially Clary's. Instead of the constantly whining and whimpering borderline bitchy delivery of every single line, there was a more mature, calm and level-headed and also far more professional voice. I saves SO MUCH of the character and actually even made me like show!Clary.
And then I have a good friend who read the books and is now my personal Shadowpedia to fix problem number 1. With more - far more - background knowledge and reminders of things that have been explained like once in the beginning and got kinda lost in all the drama, I got a far better grip on the world and thus got to enjoy it more.
My personal Shadowpedia also helped me with problem number 2. Because what Shadowhunters really is is one long motion-picture Malec fanfiction. A badly written one at that - because the OC comes between the couple, there be a wedding, but literally in the last second the other guy comes in to stop the wedding and a dramatic kiss follows plotline is virtually EVERY bad rom-com movie ever. And such a overused clichee, that is the definition of bad writing for me. Now, my Shadowpedia assured me that in the book canon, it's not that bad and that plotline didn't happen in that way. So, that also saved a lot - because if Shadowhunters really is just the Malec fanfiction of an emotionally 14 years old fangirl, then I can accept it as that.

I mean, I didn't completely hate it the first time around either. There's one thing about this show that should be a national treasure - and that is Harry Shum Junior as Magnus Bane. He is a gift to mankind. Oh my gosh, he's so awesome, he even helped me with problem number 2 by simply being too fabulously amazing to not get the guy. (Regardless of how fucking awfully that "getting the guy" was scripted *rolls eyes*)
I actually kind of adore most of the cast - aside from Clary. Alec, Jace, Simon, Isabelle, Luke. They're all awesomely cast.
And even though I was kind of unaware of the fact that Malec was a thing (because, well, only knowledge I had previous to the show was the movie where Magnus was in for like 5 minutes or so...), I found a very easy way around that! It's simple math. Magnus and Alec, and Alec and Jace equals Magnus and Alec and Jace. Threesomes are awesome.
Which worked out well for the other three too - because I ship Simon/Isabelle/Clary in every constellation there is between those three.

Now I have only one problem and that's the fact that the entire fandom seems to only ship Malec... I mean, I'm used to sailing my ships alone or only with a small crew around me, but it's still devastating every single time. And when I find that threesome, Alec always ends up at the literal bottom of the pile.

I dunno, but when they do their parabatai thing of holding hands and staring deeply into each other's eyes - Dominic Sherwood with those LIPS (I mean, seriously, that guy's face is 40% lips, 40% gorgeous heterochromic eyes and 20% cheekbones), staring up at Alec... Yeah, no, I don't see where people see Alec as a bottom. I can only guess it's due to book-knowledge, but when I see those actors...? I know who I see as the bottom.
(Also, can we talk about the fact that Matthew Daddario is Alexandra Daddario's brother and that their parents must have like sold their souls to the devil to get those fucking gorgeous off-springs... I mean, seriously, that level of gorgeousness in one family is simply not natural... ôÔ°°°)

Uh, yeah, got sidetracked by mentally picturing Jace and Alec doing their parabatai-nearly-kiss-thing again. I love when they do that. A lot.

So, anyway, got sucked into another fandom where it's frustratingly hard to find fanfiction to accomondate my tastes - sooo I guess it's up to me to write what I want to read... Good thing I'm also used to that :D

Phoe out!

have you ever tried writing a Daddy!kink story about Nicercy?

this sort of headcanon came to me after re-reading the series and noticing how well Nico takes care of Percy and since you're about the only writer with amazing skills in this fandom who likes Nicercy as much as i do why not ask you to concider writing it.

(of course you're by no means obligated to write this, and i'm not sucking up to your ass but i genuinely think that you have the skills to put together this story the same way i have it in my mind)

ok, so Percy is a struggling college student who takes lots of jobs to keep him standing on his feet and Nico is the older business man who helps his father with the business it kinda starts off with a coffee shop AU kinda thing and then one day Percy finds out that while checking his college account that some one paid for all of his college fees. Angry because Percy know the only person with the enough amount of money to do such thing is Nico after explaining the situation and Nico telling Percy how he saw him struggling and he doesn't like seeing someone he cares about in such state decided to help him, then in the heat of the moment Nico confesses his love to Percy and they start going out.
then he starts showering Percy with presents and expensive things, after a while their friends start teasing them and calling Nico "Percy's Sugar Daddy" and then one day while having sex Percy accidentally calls Nico Daddy since he secretly loved the idea of having Nico as his "dad" since he didn't really have father figure growing up, Nico gets really turned on and insists that Percy keeps calling him Daddy when they're having sex. then the story ends with them having a sort of get together with their friends and out of habit Percy says "Daddy, can you pass the salad?"or something like that and Nico absentmindedly does so and after everyone recovers from their shock they start teasing them all over again xD.

(you really don't have to do it because i know you're busy with your life and planning all those other stories not to mention your headcanon-timeline. if you do decide to do it i wouldn't mind you changing the story a little bit to what you seem fit, i would also gladly wait patiently until you do it.)

*squints very confused* ...I have never read this before, yet it's more than a year old. So, uh, sorry for the ridiculously late answer, but I never got a notification of any sorts...? *blinks confused*
Well, then again I guess it's your luck I found this right now, because a year ago I would have told you no since I was more than just a bit busy at the time (middle of finishing my bachelor degree actually). Right now, as it is, I'm not very busy, but very eager to dash out Nicercy oneshots and also curious to try and mix it up with something new. And since I've never written a Daddy Kink (unless it was, well, with Poseidon), sure, why not give it a try.
Now, I guess that was the ultimate test of patience, eh? xD Though maybe for the future... better send messages or something... ô___Ô°°° *still confused why I never got a notification*
...If you're even still interested in having that story written and aren't thinking I'm a jerk for not answering at all... v///V
