[ID: a digital portrait of Mr. Mistoffelees, a small tuxedo cat. He is lit in pink and yellow, with deep blue shadows. There are small yellow lights floating around his back and trailing down his front legs. His eyes glow, matching them. End ID]
some of y'all need to realize that you write tuggoff with a VERY uncomfortable dynamic
macavity isn't a cuddly sweetheart
munkustrap doesn't have a stick up his ass
the queens have personalities outside of the ships
bomba's sexuality doesn't mean it's her only personality trait
demeter isn't a damsel in distress and people need to remember that she was the only one who recognized it was macavity under the deut disguise
it's okay to ship OCs with popular characters
OC creators are insanely talented and a lot of their OC takes are more creative than canon cat takes (oc creators i'm smooching you on the forehead we're so smart and hot 😩)
there needs to be more of a focus on the way the fandom handles the queens
it's very difficult to find non-shippy content in this fandom
bisexual erasure is big in this fandom (@munku-collar's posts on that topic are very important so pls go check those out)(also as someone who realized she is bi because of this show, this is a point i feel extremely strongly about bc the erasure is so obvious)
someone commenting on the issues with the lyrics to the show doesn't mean they hate the show, but those issues need to be addressed
it's ok for people to have different hcs about different characters
ok those are my quick hot takes, but people send me some or if you want me to elaborate on certain points because i have a lot of feelings about each of these
Jennyanydots used to be a protector when she was younger. She isn’t old old, per se, but she can’t keep up with the physical aspects of being a protector anymore, though she still does a lot of organizing. Munkustrap often goes to her for a cup of tea and leadership advice
i dunno if this is too spicy but the way people yaoi-ify tuggoff makes me uncomfortable. like i really dont enjoy people portraying misto as this tiny, short uwu skinny guy who needs to be saved / is super innocent and tugger as he massively gargantuan muscly protector who “deflowers him” and acts aggressive to anyone who even looks at him. its just weird and feels a little homophobic to portray a gay relationship in that way?? i dunno maybe im talking out of my ass but its always bothered me
you’re right and you should absolutely say it louder
that’s the dynamic that I talk about that makes me uncomfortable, there’s an imbalance of power in that type of tuggoff dynamic that just creates a very uncomfortable storyline and relationship between them.
I’ve said before that when I personally write anything concerning tuggoffelees, I try to make sure I don’t create that power imbalance, because yes, Tugger and Mistoffelees have different personalities, but that doesn’t mean that they should be stereotypes or given one personality trait that puts them at odds and makes it unrealistic for them to be together.
I also just saw the post you made about writing about Tugger and Misto learning from each other and helping each other to grow, and that’s something I also always try to write into my stories for them.
I love Tuggoffelees, and I love their dynamic when it’s written as a healthy and naturally progressing relationship. Also everyone knows seruggoffelees is my love so that’s a dynamic I adore exploring because it’s more growth and experiences for all of them to go through!
(Also I will continue to push my “Misto is incredibly strong and can hold his own without magic” agenda 😤😤)
