TBH, one of the main reasons I could never get into EAH is the whole Royal vs. Rebel thing. It just feels… like a conscious attempt to split up the fan base into ‘Teams’ you know? And miss me on that.

I don’t think it works with the older fans though. I…

Ah, I see. I wasn’t even including those in my thoughts. Apple does get a lot of discussion. I was thinking you meant fans that identified as Royal going after ones that identified as Rebel.

I haven’t seen that, luckily, but the fact that they have a story which centers around two ‘sides’… Like, I dunno, even if it hasn’t panned out into anything bad, that sort of thing doesn’t sit well with me.

If it makes you uncomfortable, don’t follow the franchise. Not trying to be dismissive, but the Royal vs. Rebel thing isn’t going away and if I remember correctly, you never really cared for EAH anyway, so if it bothers you that much, would it really hurt to just cut it loose?

I don’t follow the franchise, and this was one of the reasons. I just happens that it sometimes shows up on my dash since I do follow people that are fans of it and I just made a statement about it.

Censorship: The government says, “No, you cannot publish that.”

Not censorship: Your consumers say, “No, I find this problematic and I will not buy it.”

Yup.

Also not censorship: Your consumers say “All of you writers/artists need to stop doing the problematic thing if you want us to buy your product,” and encourage other consumers to say the same.

Also also not censorship: A fellow consumer of media says “Your arguments about how this is not problematic are wrong, and/or you are a jerk.”

(Arguably a form of censorship but not a violation of constitutional freedom of speech: the publisher / network / producer / website owner says “No, you cannot use my platform to say that.”)

And while I am pretty vehemently anti-censorship for a whole host of reasons, if you cite freedom of speech as a defense when called out for saying something repugnant, I will almost immediately take you a hell of a lot less seriously.

you know what makes me happy

seeing people headcanoning their fictional characters to have traits that make them feel better represented (in terms of race, gender, sexuality, self expression, ect) 

you know what would make me happier?

if fans didn’t need to do that so much because they were actually getting widespread representation with fun and interesting characters

I don’t think it works with the older fans though. I don’t see Royal vs. Rebel fights in the tag or on LJ.

I think it’s interesting to watch the Royal characters slowly grow to realize that they’re Rebels. Like Briar. She’s a Royal now, but she’s already on that Rebel line. If they keep progressing with the storyline, as I’m hoping they do more in the Netflix series, I’ll enjoy watching stuff like this unfold.

I’ve seen a few conflicts here and there, but they’re usually character driven rather then side-driven. (Apple seems to be taking the brunt of these.)

I am happy to draw any OC from any fandom or non-fandom, as long as you’re cool with them being drawn in my style. I’m happy to draw any gender and body type, and yes, I am fine with drawing anthro/furry for those who may be curious if I will.

Favorite Character: Cedar Wood

I just think a lot about how monster high can make younger kids feel 

like, a young black girl being told by almost literally any media that she needs to straighten/change her natural hair to be pretty but she comes across honey who not only has hair like her but talks about how much she loves her hair 

or maybe a nonverbal disabled child who identifies so much with ghoulia

operetta has a big burn-like scar on her face and she rocks the fashion just as much as anyone else

or girls who learn from clawdeen its totally okay to be hairy, but if you also want to shave thats cool too. and girls who can’t or don’t want to shave can come across marisol and see she’s literally hairy and has thick eyebrows and it’s so not a bad thing

then there’s vandala who has a prosthetic leg and ryder/finn rocking a wheelchair 

and it just makes really happy and fuzzy because you can tell these dolls were designed with these kinds of things in mind and they’re gonna make some children, who probably never see these things about them anywhere in media, very happy
