I’m going to be honest…
When a cishet white neurotypical person writes a character and then finds out that people see it as an allegory for being trans, or neurodivergent, or queer, or a PoC and then the cishet white neurotypical person says “This Was Not My Intention”…
I’m likely to believe them.
For the simple fact that most, if not close to all of them, had no idea the rest of the world existed beyond their worldview until 2020 hit.
So when folks say “I Bet This Was A Trans Allegory” about a character written before say, oh I dunno, 2018… I have to quirk my eyebrow, because - as much as it may seem like it - it almost 100% isn’t.
Cishet White Neurotypical people write Robots, Monsters, Aliens, etc as “Not Understanding Typical Earth Human Society Standards Of Things” and stumble accidentally into relatable content for people who aren’t like them.
When the writer of “The Thing From Before 2018” says it’s not about being neurodivergent, or trans, or a PoC, or anything… they’re probably telling the truth because they legitimately didn’t even consider that a possibility until the world forced them to see those types of people as people in the real world let alone fiction.
Also this isn’t a “we should forgive/turn a blind to this stuff” post.
It’s more a “stop saying these characters are factually allegories when they are not at all that” post.
One of the main reasons we resonate with Robots, Aliens, Monsters, etc in media is because Cishet White Neurotypical folks othered us in real life the same way they other THOSE kinds of characters in fiction, treated as “not exactly human.”

I really just need Bakugo and Deku to genuinely smile together at some point.
The way Bakugo's the only one in the class that isn't shown smiling directly at Deku (possibly because Deku's never seen Bakugo smile at him)? The way his letter was the only one that mentioned hoping to smile together again? And Bakugo being the one to ask him if he could still smile?

Ponder Stibbons had been worried to find himself, as a wizard, awaiting the arrival of the Hogfather. It's amazing how people define roles for themselves and put handcuffs on their experience and are constantly surprised by the things a roulette universe spins at them.
Terry Pratchett, Hogfather

Mic Joins the Battle
In celebration of my favourite man getting his very own playable character. One's Justice 2, more like Justice For Mic (has been served).

Sadly, the bamboo grove where Yao and Kiku first met no longer stands. In its place there is an urban housing complex.

I think the zest that time travel fics are missing for me is elaborate side quests that allow the archive staff to absolutely DECK the avatars/ppl who had even a minor hand in their tragic backstories.
What I'm saying is Melanie should be allowed to go back in time and kill John Amherst

"Well, you brought some magic into that little life," said Albert, as the next child was hurried away.
IT'S THE EXPRESSION ON THEIR LITTLE FACES I LIKE, said the Hogfather.
"You mean the sort of fear and awe and not knowing whether to laugh or cry or wet their pants?"
YES. NOW THAT IS WHAT I CALL BELIEF.
Terry Pratchett, Hogfather

Mongolia was harsh, but he wasn’t a sadist.
He was trying to make Russia understand that they lived in a hostile world where nations are not going to wait for a fair fight. He wanted Russia to learn how to survive and not be so codependent because he had been forced to learn these lessons the hard way.
