some quick cycle 1 ocs before i run off to figure drawin class uvu

Don’t you wish your OCs got to be with cuties (and Cancer) like mine *v*

Okay let me put my own two cents in here about Legend of Sanctuary. Mainly because I like to talk and I like to talk about shit I enjoy. And I enjoyed Legend of Sanctuary! I’m gonna be real honest— I came in with little to no hopes. I spent MONTHS of the movie’s trailers and character design sheets shitting all over it. And even now, I’m not totally happy with the movie as a whole. But for what it is? It’s a decent movie.

Let me explain. Legend of Sanctuary is best viewed not as a “remake” of Sanctuary arc. You can’t fit 60 episodes of plot into an hour and a half of movie successfully. Especially not when it’s so heavy on progression, like Sanctuary arc is. The best way to watch it is as it’s own unique thing. It’s part of the Saint Seiya universe, but it’s a unique entity. Think of it as like an AU or something. It’s a different dimension and all that. That’s why the characters are different, why the relationships are different, all of it. It’s not better or worse; just different.

My biggest gripe with Legend of Sanctuary will always, ALWAYS be the removal of literally all but one of the central female characters (and you couldn’t remove Saori because she’s fucking Athena). I love the women in Saint Seiya, that’s no secret. I think they need to be protected and celebrated. And there’s plenty of reasons for that! Marin, Shaina, Shunrei, Esmeralda and to lesser extents Miho and June are CRITICAL to the storytelling of the original Saint Seiya. Marin is Seiya’s teacher, Shaina is his first antagonist, both have roles that flesh out Seiya as a character. They also hold important roles when it comes to his development and motivation. Shunrei is VERY IMPORTANT to Shiryu’s character. The whole reason why he fucking found the power to defeat Deathmask was because he thought Shunrei had been killed. Shunrei also played a huge role by being his support. Esmeralda is the same way; her influence in Ikki’s life literally forms a significant part of his personality. Miho and June also share these “support” roles to Seiya and Shun, respectively. The women in Saint Seiya are very important. They are crucial to the character’s backstories, they help develop them, and they themselves play important roles in the grand scheme of the story. Marin was the first person to climb Star Hill and find Shion’s body, and discover that the current pope was an imposter. She protects Seiya more than once, allowing him to continue on in his journey. Shaina also plays these roles as both a hindrance, and a helper.

However, in LoS, they’re missing. Marin doesn’t train Seiya, you don’t even really get a sense of who trained these kids, you just know oh okay, they learned how to be saints, that’s it. Seiya’s interaction with Saori as children was thrown in, to make their connection later on more believable. I get it, like I said, it was an hour and a half movie; they weren’t going to get everything in. Even Shiryu only had a passing mention of Dohko, the fucking Libra saint, as his master. So I understand why Marin and Shaina were gone, the same with Shunrei. It would have been nearly impossible to include them for only a brief mention, or a five minute scene (such as with Hyoga and Camus) and to have them maintain their roles successfully. I’m upset that Shiryu’s determination to protect(/avenge) Shunrei is absent, replaced instead with a much cheaper “FOR ATHENA!!!” reasoning. I’m upset that Marin nearly killing herself to protect Seiya from assassins from Sanctuary is gone, showing her personality, and Seiya’s importance to her. However, I’m not upset about Milo being a girl.

Let me reiterate myself: this is NOT classic Saint Seiya. This is a totally different thing. If your complaint is that “they changed the canon”, you are blatantly ignoring LITERALLY EVERYTHING ELSE IN THE MOVIE. The only things they kept canon is Shiryu’s swishy hair and that Ikki and Shun are brothers. That’s pretty much it. And, again, that’s fine. I don’t mind Milo being a girl; I liked the glimpses of character we saw from her (mostly because I was seeing like, an AU Sonia and she’s my boo), and overall, she was pleasant to watch. The only thing I have to say against Fem!Milo is that changing the sex of one minor character does not replace 5 others. A girl Milo does not replace Shunrei and Marin and Shaina and Esmeralda and June. If that was their intention, it failed. If they just wanted some variety, then fine, I’m good with that. Nothing I can say will change it now, but I will say that I am fine with LoS Milo, but do not support the idea of replacing major women with a minor sex-swap.

Also, DM’s music number was great, everyone get over it.

This is actually sadly relevant. I had a lecture this summer about sign languages and Deaf culture and when I was finished, one hearing girl from the audience stayed behind to ask me some more question.
She asked me: “And your parents use sign language, right?” Like it was the most obvious thing in the world and why is she even asking this, of course my parents must know sign language.
"No… They don’t, actually."
"And how do you communicate, then?"
"Talking?"
"But… isn’t that complicated for you?"
"It is, sometimes."
"They probably didn’t have time for it…" she said. And I haven’t the heart to tell her that my father was offered sign language courses several times, that I offered to teach them some signs and that they always refused.
But I did told her: “It is not that rare. Most of deaf people I know have hearing parents who don’t sign.”
It’s the sad truth. People are willing to pay for surgeries to “repair” their children, but they are not willing to learn something to communicate with them.

i’d like to add onto this with my own personal experience, too. i was born hearing, but as soon as i was diagnosed as HoH, my parents didn’t do anything to learn ASL. they were quick to put me in classes, but they wouldn’t when i suggested to them that they take the classes with me so that we could learn.
i’ve tried to teach my mom how to sign numerous times, but she always says that “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks,” to which i tell her that she can learn, she just doesn’t want to. which is true. neither of my parents want to learn how to sign, but they want me to be able to hear perfectly so they don’t have to repeat themselves.
little do they know that their frustration with me not being able to hear them would be solved if they would just learn how to sign. maybe signing something to me once instead of repeating themselves four times and then getting mad would be more beneficial.

I’m absolutely shocked at this, it’s never crossed my mind that many parents wouldn’t even try to meet their hard of hearing kids halfway.

My cousin is Deaf and it’s the same with her father. Her mother and sister all took classes to learn to sign, but her father refuses to. So, instead of communicating with his daughter in a way she understands, to get her attention he just smacks and then yells at her. I only see her maybe once a year and I know more Sign then he does, it’s horrible.

They also have matching back tattoos because girlfriends.
SHAINA WITH SNAKEBITES HELL YEAH
I had to tbh B> Piercing and tattoo AU demanded it.
colors on one of those things from earlier! now bed =v=

colors on one of those things from earlier! now bed =v=

I had illusions of grandeur where I would draw LoS style Marin and Shaina (because we were ROBBED FUCKING ROBBED) except then I remember I can’t draw armor that I can stare at and try to copy let alone armor I make up on my own l m f a o. You can probably tell where I officially gave up. Maybe I’ll try again when I don’t suck at literally all forms of artistic talent

Anonymous sent: where can i see your cosplays, nuri?

YOU DON’T WANT TO honestly I’m quite terrible, so don’t think I’m anything really amazing, hold no expectations because I won’t meet them, but thank you for the interest!

You can find my cosplay on my tumblr under the tag “my cosplay”, my ACP page, and I also have a (cosplay only)  Facebook account!

kakkobooran sent: for reals tho having made one of those golden cloth armor cosplays myself YOU CANNOT SIT IN THOSE THINGS THE FUCK ARE YOU SUPPOSED TO DO IN THE THEATER, STAND THE WHOLE TIME, FUCKING HELL WHO ARE THOSE RUDE PEOPLE ATTACKING THEM gods

Dude one year I made a fucking weird half wrap/half witchcraft dress that if I sat down I was certain my ass would DESTROY the fuck out of it and I would be holding the tattered remains as I ran all the way back to my hotel room, so I had to stand for five straight hours. I imagine armor is like that but only THREE HUNDRED TIMES WORSE. I also get uncomfortable with a sweater on in theaters, wearing full armor I would likely just die of heat stroke.
