shadowfairyy:

my name is Dara and while I adore my name nowadays, like most kids with uncommon or foreign names I had the Worst Time growing up with pronunciations, my name is pronounced Dar (rhymes with car) Rah but I know in some places in the US it rhymes with Sarah instead so that’s where the biggest confusion comes from, although I have gotten a few Daria’s, sometimes a Dora, an occasional Dana (from misreading the r lol), and weirdly enough, once Derek

anyway so I’ve gotten so many dare-ruhs over the course of my life where I stopped correcting people by the time I got to highschool and I just respond to it anyway to the point where nowadays I don’t even register that they’re saying the wrong name and now i feel so bad ‘cause imagine you meet someone and their name is like John so you just call them John for so long and they never say anything until like months later you find out that theyre name is actually pronounced like Yoh-n or something and they just never corrected you. wouldnt that be fucked up

Someday I will meet a Dara who’s pronounced dare-rah and I’m going to have to fight them to the death

I really like it when ur going for a walk and ur nearby some bushes at the side of the road and as you walk towards the bushes you hear the loudest choir of dozens of tiny little birds chirping so intensely you can hear them from the other end of the street and once you get to them and stand next to them you see inside the bushes that they’re all just hopping around the branches and after a few moments they notice you and suddenly go silent and you move on and walk away and as soon as ur like two feet away from the bushes they start back up chirping again with the same level of volume it’s like I interrupted their sweet gossip sesh. Sorry to eavesdrop little birds, have fun with ur meeting

this is kinda specific and doesnt appear to be as much of a problem anymore but what was the deal with doll lines from like the 80s all the way to even the mid 2000s sometimes only allowing their dolls to have boyfriends that matched them in like even hair colour. doll lines were like if you have blonde hair you are only allowed a blonde boyfriend. what was the deal with that

#especially the doll lines cartoons#the white blonde has a white blonde boyfriend. the white brunette has a white brunette boyfriend.#the black doll has a black boyfriend. the ambiguous brown doll has an ambiguously brown boyfriend#the asian coded doll.....actually i dont remember a lot of asian dolls having boyfriends at all....thats also strange#to be perfectly honest from a doll play perspective i think the best way to go about doll boyfriends would be to have a line of them#without specific ties to specific characters so kids could make up their own stories with whatever characters#but i know doll lines disagree with me and prefer to have set character personalities and relationships#my toy line of choice as a child was littlest pet shop and webkinz and i think it shows fjkewjfkdssfnd#i preferred toy lines without set stories and character personalities qwq more fun to make up stuff with my friends#while by myself i would also make up stories and new names and personalities for the dolls with personalities#i couldnt do it with my friends cause thered always be one kid who was like CLOE DOESNT ACT LIKE THAT#and i would be like yeah. i dont care.#i mean i loved the bratz cartoons as a kid but like. they were unrelated to my play jfkdsnkdsjfkds#oh did i ever mention that i adored bratz babies as a kid#jesus christ those dolls. i think the reason i liked them is cause they were like normal bratz#but they were smaller and they had molded hair (wont get tangled) and their feet didnt come off#i had one normal bratz doll and genuinely i lost her feet within a week#anyway i loved bratz babies when i was like 7 but looking at them nowadays. jesus christ#why do they look like that.#sometimes the bratz babiez theme song manifests itself within my brain like a ghost

I have to be careful about how much of my doll customizing adventures my family sees because even though I’m just having a little fun I know for a FACT all they see is this

This is kinda specific and I don’t mean to toot my own horn too much but I really appreciate when someone mass likes through my Ikemen Sengoku tags, I think it’s because growing up one of my favourite things to do was watch someone go through parts of my sketchbook they hadn’t seen before, it’s like oh hell yeah…..I hope theyre having fun looking at my drawings!!!!!!!!!

Been kinda fucked up and haven’t slept properly in a week so I took some melatonin and watched jet Li’s the one and like maybe it was the sleepy melatonin delirium. Maybe it was the incredibly 2001 CGI. Maybe it was the fact that both drowning pool AND disturbed played in just the first ten minutes. But I think. That this is the greatest movie of all time. Ive never seen a jet Li movie before are they all like this. I think every action movie should have nu metal for the soundtrack. I think every action movie should end with last resort played to a fight scene.

In the past year or so I’ve started religiously writing down every single idea or plot point or scene or concept I have whenever I think it for my various groups of OCs in a notebook in hopes that it’ll help me sort out my thoughts enough to actually do something with my OCs and so far I think it’s helping but also I was diagnosed with can’t write as a child so sometimes trying to reread whatever I scrawled at 3 am when I was thinking really hard about my OCs can be.. a challenge. I just spent 10 minutes trying to decipher why the holy hell I put a winky face next to the word monster in this sentence

I realize now it’s supposed to be the word “is”…………………….

like 70% of the media i consume is stuff targeted toward women and girls with an emphasis on romance so this edition of Dara-Talks-About-Tropes-For-An-Obscenely-Long-Time might be a little niche but like, i’ll basically look into anything with brown characters in it and one thing i’ve noticed with brown leading men in particular…..damn its like a 50-50 chance they’re a prince of india or a fictional stand-in for some kinda amalgamation of like india and like 15 other countries and like…. im half indo guyanese so im a little separated from the actual country of India by like a century or two but i feel like. there can’t be That Many indian princes, right? there can’t be that many………

whats the deal…well i mean i know whats the deal, having ur leading man be some kinda rich or powerful guy is common for being a popular fantasy and also a very good deus ex machina if you run into a roadblock in the story (fix ur plothole with money) and as to why specifically brown leading men in particular are never just normal rich guys and are all fantastical princes of far off lands, well, insert image of Orientalism by Edward W Said here, but like….. damn man at this point the sheer amount of indian princes is getting out of hand…i roll my eyes into orbit when i see ambiguously brown prince of fictional mystical foreign country #34874329843 but im not so sure its that much better when they choose a real country….. a while ago i was mildly roasting the mysterious-brown-guys-named-zero trope (i SWEAR its a THING i’ve seen it at LEAST thrice) before but like when i talked about how i care about my brown kings this isnt what i meant!!!

and i mean dont get me wrong i still want my brown leading men in absurd leading man tropes, im hoping this is less of a problem now but i remember when i was a lot younger i would like play some english original romance games and all the white boys were allowed to be absurd in fun ways like im a super handsome doctor and im a super genius and i know how to beat up 10 men with my pinkie finger and my parents are dead so im going to avenge them and im a great cook but im scared of the dark and my favourite food is popcorn like yknow you could make a random generator outta that and it rules but then the dudes of colour would be relegated to normal guy whos kinda nice and his route is rushed and unrelated to whatever crazy plot is going on….. the lady options (both ladies of colour and otherwise, although i also noticed a lot of things were especially dismissive of the women of colour) had the same problem…..im not sure if this is a universal take but if im reading a piece of romance media marketed towards women and girls 80% of the time i want something ridiculous and fun….. your brown leading man can be a mountain biking vampire witch from the future if you just try…………….

anyway im still unmedicated and a mess but what im trying to say is theres so many fictional indian princes in romance media. i could be a half indian prince too. you wouldnt know until its too late. watch out. dont turn your back.

i think theres something a little fun and interesting about media franchises in other languages where only one entry was ever localized in english, officially or otherwise

like, its obviously a shame that we never got the other entries in these series and franchises but also sometimes never having the sequels or prequels for something can turn it from a normal story into something accidentally surreal, and i think i just find it fascinating because it comes not from the initial writing process but from adaptation instead

shadowfairyy:

So I’ve been been playing Jake hunter memories of the past recently and like Im pretty forgiving of localization weirdness because localization is like the hardest job in the world and I’m especially forgiving of localization weirdness in stuff that came out in the 00’s, especially things like Phoenix Wright where puns and joke names are fairly baked into the original, but man. Jake hunter and Valente disano, huh …..mafia boss valente disano

So this is the residence of Italian American mob boss Valente disano who is american and lives in America like we do as Jake hunter American man who lives in America with his American shoji doors huh

American boss of the mafia in America with his full suit of American samurai armor which is displayed as he does american mafia crime in america huh

They talked about a lady named nobuko and I was wondering why she was allowed to still be Japanese but then I saw her sprite

I guess they figured the kimono would be too much of a tip off….but the samurai armor in the shoji doored room wasn’t ………..
