I figured I'd start up a non-IC tumblr thingamabob, for my random arts/thoughts/rebloggings.

dang that black lipstick I was thinking about disappeared off the face of the planet fast. (I mean, I have one, but it’s in a pan so there’s no applying on the go and I have to wash my lip brush every time I use it so I was looking for something in a ‘classic bullet lipstick’… I could go with OCC and it would be easy to blend with other lip tars, but still wouldn’t be easy to just apply, and also it’s way more expensive… I could go Portland Black Lipstick Company, which I hear really great things about, but it’s like a round chapstick shape which is less easy to work with without a brush and is still more expensive, and I don’t want to go with crappy Hallowe’en makeup from an untested brand so bleh)

and now the birthday countdown begins and I battle against feelings of age-related dread even harder, but also, at some point my family will provide me with cake, so…

OOPS

Okay I can’t browse tumblr for a while, gotta duck spoilers. Dangit I always forget about that. That’s why I so often just check a few people’s blogs…

Well, I’ll probably be back to post stuff at some point but whatever, see y’all.

There's actually a lot of fic with Newt, Hermann, and Vanessa in a poly relationship, thus making Hermann bi or pan. Even when Hermann isn't written as bi or pan, Newt generally is, so there's that? Newmann shippers are pretty good about representation from what I've seen. (I also know some people make Hermann gay instead of bi/pan because they feel that his character is based on Alan Turing (in appearance, occupation, etc.) and don't feel comfortable making him attracted to women as result.)

i-was-once-a-tortoise:

 Most fan versions of Newt I’ve seen have him be gay rather than bi, though it is good to know that that’s out there.

Writing a poly relationship with Vanessa in it must be difficult. She doesn’t really have much of a presence as a character or personality (she doesn’t even have a page on the wiki), so do most fic writers just sort of make up what she’s like?

I can definitely see similarities in personality between Hermann and Turing (although I don’t see much similar in terms of physical appearance, except maybe hair), so I can see why that makes sense.

The special feature drift thing suggests that Newt could easily bi or pan. His ‘romantic interest’ is listed as anyone who’ll have him, and he’s not shown to have any preference, so there’s no reason not to.

I’m personally more comfortable with Hermann as gay, because of the Turing parallels, and because the character of Vanessa seems connected to an earlier version of Hermann who is very different from the Hermann who appears on screen. Like, for me, since she’s not referred to on screen, she doesn’t even need to exist? I’m open to various fan characterizations of her, but I don’t miss her if she’s not there because in the movie, she’s not. (and here I tend to take Burn Gorman’s interpretation over Travis Beacham’s, because that’s what we SEE).

The prompt on the kink meme was ‘Newt with a pet Hermann/Sexy Hermann wearing cat ears’. I submit that, while they don’t wind up having sex, Hermann in his cat ears is still sexy. I just focused on the intimacy and relaxation of it…

Basically, non-sexual pet play (this time). Lots of touching and fun and talk of sex-stuff, no orgasm-seeking.

Also, Newt is a good boyfriend, re: having a partner with a physical disability, and never deciding he knows best about Hermann’s own body. Because that is important to the author. I love caretaking in fics, but there are lines it’s important not to cross when it comes to the autonomy of people who are so often denied autonomy by the world at large.

Added a couple more super-short kink meme fills and now I should do dishes

being sick is so depressing. Like, body, you crap out on me enough when you’re healthy, but now you’re keeping me in the house too? I leave to buy juice/applesauce/crackers and otherwise I’m just… ugh. And then not going out starts to make me feel worse emotionally. I’m glad I’m getting writing done, but I’m really bummed about missing out on stuff at the arts center and I’m skipping some of the trips out with the family just because I feel gross or am coughing.

This was on my dash earlier and I so meant to post it hours ago haha

i cant believe im hesitating making this post but

if someone has a comfort object, like a blanket or a stuffed animal or anythign that they have to sleep with in order to make them feel secure or positive, don’t fucking make fun of them. i don’t care where it is or why you feel that it’s funny or childish, but don’t make fun of them. 

And don’t you fucking take it away from them.

THIS

Comfort is important, and different people find it in different places and ways. And for those who need an object with feelings of comfort attached to it, it’s never okay to try and knock away that sense of comfort.

For the kink meme prompt
"A series of various characters assuming that Hermann and Newt are a couple/married, when they really are just collegues.

And in the end the one person who always thought they were just friends walks in on their first time.”
