PEOPLE DO THE THING
So I tried reading Newmanessa fanfic to try and understand the appeal and… was I reading the wrong fics? Because all I saw was Newt getting sidelined as some infantalized, pet-like house-boy while Hermann and Vanessa do the ‘adult loving marriage’ schtic. Or Vanessa is seen as this mystical spice to Hermann and Newt’s relationship and at one point there is some eyebrow waggling from Newt and something akin to ‘that’s a helluva wife you got there’.
And I’m REAAAAAAALLY not comfortable with either.
I don’t even care if my coworker doesn’t get back to me with the time and place of the bake sale and it all goes bust. I JUST WANNA BAKE FUN SPOOPY SHIT
BTW startrekrenegades, may have figured out gluten-free pie crust….
i think until it’s stated in the next movie/upcoming tv show, we should sort of assume that’s canon.
i’m not saying we should write a bunch of angsty stories of hermann being like “but i’m married, oh, but i love him!” in a soap-opera-ish voice. she doesn’t even have to be a character. just maybe a brief mention or something, like, hermann used to be married to this woman, but their marriage ended a while ago.
my main thing isn’t the book’s canon versus the movie canon or anything, more of the problem that bi/pan people are really not that common in fic much, somethin which really oughta be fixed, and newmann seems as good a place to start as any to me.
let me repeat myself: the book isn’t canon. there’s no “assumptions” here. it just factually does not hold any weight. if the book were canon we would be looking at a blond, physically able-bodied hermann, because that is how the book described him. read up on this kind of thing before you start talking like you know what you’re saying. headcanon hermann as bi all you want, but don’t do it because you feel obligated to from some trashy heteronormative fanfiction.
We also would be looking at a Mako and Raleigh who kissed romantically and an entire branch of the Mori family that opted not to adopt Mako when her parents were killed- which, as was covered in a panel featuring a panelist of Japanese descent- is something just not done.
People are welcome to read, ascribe to, and even enjoy the novel and comic paracanon, by all means! Just don’t expect other folks to be dancing in the streets…
Participating in a charity bake sale and wondering which dishes I should make gluten-free or vegan. So gluten free folks- which would you be more inclined to buy: apple pie or orange-chocolate brownies?
let me just preface this by saying i don’t give out compliments that i don’t believe, and i hopped up on my shitty pc device to make this post despite the innumerable problems i have with it so DON’T TAKE THIS LIGHTLY.
crowtoed is literally the best newt cosplayer. like when i look at them i think “that’s newt.” if you put cd and crowtoed in a room together so i could only pick one of them to be the perfect newt cosplayer i would say “cd, don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.”
I… I’m gonna ask someone to engrave this shit on a memorial plaque and stick it with my ashes. Thank you.
