Day 7: Favorite non-romantic pairing
The Dragons of Heaven’s friendships

"If you spend all that time together without being related, and you enjoy each other’s company, then you must be friends."

This is cultural bias in effect. General (generally white) audiences never question why characters are white and blond. If a character could be white, that’s usually justification enough. Whiteness as default becomes logical and comfortable. Only non-whiteness requires an explanation.
Indeed, if a character is not white, some people will cry out that their racial identity is the product of political agenda-driven tampering. If a character is white, the same people will comfortably assume that he or she came out of the box like that.
It should be noted that we’re not even talking about the broad US census category of “white”, which covers people whose families hail from Europe, North Africa or the Middle East — including many people with tan, olive or ruddy skin.
In comics, whiteness is predominantly represented by the pale pink complexions of Northern Europeans — the color once problematically referred to as “Flesh” on Crayola crayons, until Crayola changed it to “Peach” in 1962. Real world white comes in many shades, but in comics all white people seem to trend towards hex color #FFCFAB. (Individual colorists may of course bring more nuance to their work, but how many white superheroes can you name who are consistently portrayed with bronze or olive-toned skin?)
Superhero comics don’t actually favor whiteness; they favor a subset of whiteness that borders on Aryan idealism. We ought to regard that as uncomfortably fetishistic, because it’s an aesthetic that the industry has chosen.
All fiction is manufactured. Authors make their worlds and choose what goes in them. It is always possible to contrive a fictional justification for a character looking whichever way the author wants, up to and including finding a way to make a white person the hero in a story about, say, feudal Japan, or ancient Egypt, or Persia during the Islamic Golden Age. A white hero is not the most likely scenario, but it’s always a possible scenario, so in that way it always becomes justified.
The decision to cast Michael B. Jordan as the Human Torch has been called out by message board posters as evidence of an agenda at work — but white heroes in these non-white settings are rarely called out as similar evidence of an agenda. It’s all artifice, it’s all contrived. Fiction exists in service to an author’s design. All fiction serves an agenda, whether it’s articulated or not.

I LOVE THIS FIC THO

THAT JUST MAKES ME WANT TO REARRANGE UNTIL I CRY EVEN MORE, SO IT’S GOOD ENOUGH TO SHARE WITH YOU. T_T

*POINTS VIGOROUSLY*

I’m not actually on board the Pejic-as-Fai train, I’m just reblogging this to say that Pejic has stated publically that she prefers female pronouns and since you are beautiful people I knew that you would want to know. :)

OH. thank you faren!
last i knew she had stated to use they/etc so that what i used when i originally made the post but TAKE NOTE ALL FRIENDS
Also do you have a different headcanon? I’m curious now :3

I was getting it from this interview (which was in October 2013), but if Pejic has said something else more recently, please correct me!

It’s not that I think Pejic is a bad pick, I just always thought of Fai as having a lot more muscle tone because he’s so athletic.  Pejic is a bit… waifish?  Look at people who practice arts like capoeira, like this guy.  (Ignoring CLAMP’s artistic style, which makes everyone look elongated, Fai would need to have insane muscles in his torso to pull off the stuff he does.)

Pejic has got a facial structure and hair texture that remind me a lot of Fai, but her body type isn’t what I picture at all. XD

let’s play a game

pick a number between 2 and 1,000,000

The one who guesses correctly the number of times I will re-write or re-arrange scenes in Chapter 8 of DAST will win a bottle of my tears.

These are obviously Yuuko’s. She made Watanuki battle a hundred housewifes to get them for her. And then she used them to step on him in gratitude~
