its kinda stang e
Here’s a comic about being in bed. In other news, I got an advance copy of my book The Listening Agent yesterday. It looks brilliant. If you’re the sort of person who likes books, you’ll love it.
“Countless others have come before you, seeking weapons or weaknesses or battle strategies!”
this is one of the truly brilliant things about this show. while most kids’ shows will have good vs evil conflict, atla has a war. a real war, between people, with all the moral greyness and points of view made clear. the fire nation isn’t evil: it’s a repressed country under the strict control of its ruler. we’re shown how history is altered and propaganda is taught as fact, so the people grow up moulded to hate all other nations.
and then we get lines like this, which make us stop and think wait, is what the other nations are doing really right? after all, Ba Sing Se was supposed to be a haven, but turned out to be repressive and full of lies.
in this case we know that Aang is justified, and we trust him to do what’s right because he has such high moral standards. then we get to the finale and all that is challenged again.
it’s just a brilliant show guise.
In Passing, 1/3
I’m in Stephanie Rowden’s CFC II class, for our final project we’re doing what’s basically a scaled-down IP (thesis project for those who can’t keep track of all these acronyms)— a six-week, self-directed project. I’m working on three short comic vignettes and I’m excited to share them! Here’s the first of the three.
JACK WHITE HAVING FUN
Ya okay I complain about this like everyday but every time I see like 129301380 more people draw Blake as POC then Yang, I want to side eye them into oblivion. Not saying you can’t headcanon Blake as POC, but goddamn WHY NOT YANG, SHE HAS LIKE THE MOST BLATANTLY CHINESE NAME EVER.
All I’m saying is I’m pretty sure the RWBY fandom saw Blake was like wow yes dark hair must be POC because black hair yes good. While everyone else saw the blonde hair and now they draw Yang like a white girl. Thanks RWBY fandom.
