I am loving tulips! I don’t have a proper Tumblr page but, I’ll still keep this tab open and refresh it for whenever you post your next part… I wish I can add to your notes, to show that a lot of us do read and appreciate your work. Keep up the good work and I hope you’re doing fine
just the thought alone and knowing that you took the time to read through my fic means more than the world to me, i can't express how grateful i am. i'll continue to work hard for you guys and i hope you're doing just fine as well, thank you so much ╰(*´︶`*)╯♡
Idk if you’ve already seen this but @missnight0wl made a post about Tulip’s relationship with her parents. Just thought you might be interested seeing how you’re a huge Tulip fan and you’ve talked about her parents too.
Thank you for telling me! I hadn't seen that one and I'm so glad to have found it. Y'all should check it out here because MissNight0wl is amazing, definitely a source of inspiration for me and totally the top analyst of this game and fandom.
Though I vastly appreciate all of the points she brings up and I love the analysis like I always do, I'm not sure I agree. Particularly in light of what we've learned recently, about Tulip's family. That her grandmothers are the only people she feels that she can be herself around, and even in this case, her first instinct is that she must make them proud, it doesn't even occur to her that they don't care about that and just want to spend time with Tulip because they love her. I cannot explain to you how much that broke me.
But because of this...I just don't get the sense that Tulip has ever been shown unconditional love. Sure, she could have mistaken it for something else...but I don't know. I like the interpretation that her parents care about her, but I just don't know if I can see it. Her mentioning that they used to mess around in History of Magic...I mean, Tulip doesn't say that they were the ones who told her this story. For all we know, Mary and Rosa did. I'd say that's more likely. I also don't get the sense that Tulip resents her parents for taking on a dangerous job, though I would love to see that kind of thing explored. She seems to embrace danger. Her complaint was always that they were restrictive and didn't understand her.
Of course, whether or not Tulip's parents are Aurors is another question that has been left up in the air. I always interpreted them as working for the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, like where Crouch used to work...but I'll admit, there's no reason that Aurors couldn't be be the kind of strict, lawful to a fault type of people that the Karasus have been implied to be. But the thing is, if they're Aurors, that leaves open many other implications and opens up a different can of worms. First of all, let's address the elephant in the room: Aurors are magical cops. And all cops are bastards. (Except Tonks, she is the one exception, no I don't take constructive criticism.) I'm not saying that Aurors are automatically part of a broken institution because racism has not evolved in exactly the same way for this world. We don't hear anything about Aurors evolving from a "muggle patrol" or any examples of them discriminating against muggle-borns. Still, there's an allegory here that would be pretty difficult to ignore, and I'm not even sure this franchise is planning to fully ignore it. The Crimes of Grindelwald had some surprising social commentary about it.
Either way, I feel like Tulip is the kind of person who would dislike Aurors for a variety of reasons. I don't personally see her ever joining the Ministry, even if she accepts that Tonks wants to. Not even the Department of Mysteries. I believe she'd have as much personal problems with Aurors as Newt, even if her parents weren't part of that office. And then there's another elephant in the room with this head-canon. The Rotfang Theory. We know that R has infiltrated the Ministry and it's long been speculated that if R is Rotfang, that Tulip's parents are involved. If the Rotfang Theory is true, and her parents are indeed Aurors...well, I'm not saying they'd be members, but they would have to be involved in that particular storyline. It could also explain why they've received cursed objects in the past. Like I said, I don't know if the Potterverse is planning on ignoring the unfortunate status of Aurors as magical cops. Obviously, Jam City couldn't have known about George Floyd and everything that has resulted from his murder at the point they planned the skeleton and outline of this game...but it's not like George was the first. If R is truthfully orchestrated by corrupt cops...that would actually be pretty awesome.
Anyway, I just don't think there's enough evidence, personally, that Tulip's parents are good people. Even the fact that she and Merula were drawn to each other is almost a kind of thematic parallel. Though we haven't met any of these parents, I feel like Tulip's family would be a lawful echo of Merula's family. One thing MissNight0wl's post did help me realize though, is that Tulip actually does talk about her parents more often than I thought. Still, it's always distant, and I hesitate to chalk up everything to just "teenage rebellion" Tulip didn't just rebel, she befriended someone like Merula Snyde. She doesn't just play pranks, she actively sought out danger and glory. I don't know how bad her parents are, but this is so much more serious than just them being strict and her acting out because of it.

I know I’ve sent you a bunch of asks today and I hope this isn’t overstepping but I just wanted to remind you that this is your blog and you can post and write about whatever you want to write about!
You can definitely cut back on daddy kink content and write more things that don’t include it as a way to add some variety to your works but I also want to say that you do what feels right for you and not because you feel like you have to change yourself or your writing for the sake of others, I’ve done that a lot in my three years writing here and writing started to feel like a chore and like I was always anxious about making everyone happy with my writing because there’s many people who want many things in an audience of readers and not that writing what others want is a bad thing but I think sometimes it can start to feel overwhelming
I hope that doesn’t come off as selfish or mean to you or the anon! I just want to tell you that it’s more than ok to write a lot about a certain theme or kink or character, as long as writing is enjoyable to you that’s what matters most! And I’m terms of the engagement and interaction, it’s really a battle and I’m sorry about that, as much as I’ve loved writing here there has definitely been discouraging and insecure times bc we of course want people to really respond to our works and your writing especially deserves that bc you’re so talented and I just wish that more and more people find and resonate with your work and I know they will bc I did and do and so do many others!
This is so long ahh I’m sorry but even if it takes time I know you’ll start to see that rise in engagement from people and in the meantime just know that you really bring joy to people with your works as they are and definitely will as they evolve as you do! 💕🌟💕🌟💕🌟💕🌟💕🌟💕🌟💕🌟💕🌟💕🌟💕🌟💕🌟💕
this isn’t overstepping anything don’t you worry and I don’t mind your asks at all! they bring a smile on my smile everytime but this ask brought a little tears to my eyes. I always grew up giving, I love giving to people and giving them what they want but what comes with giving is energy and price of me that I always twine. if I always give my everything and nobody really resonates with it it’s a little heartbreaking. I know to always stay strong and to not go overboard, to not get out my everything to just a words but I really can’t help it. just like I can’t help but give people what they want, maybe i’ll get over this stage of myself but i’m looking for a change. something fresh and maybe this time I won’t give too much of myself and be too vulnerable with my work. love you amalia, you’re a rainbow that gifts is all after the quake of a thunderstorm. ily 💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞💞
