I'm tired of seeing tumblr's disregard for animal welfare so here we go.

vetmedlife:

This does go for all animals, but since dog behaviour is my comfort zone and since most of these posts I see are of dogs being stressed or mishandled I’m going to focus on dogs. Anyone else who is more knowledgable on other animals expression of stress and behaviour are super…

I’ve written about this subject quite a few times on my other blog, but this person puts it all forward WAY better than I ever did, and I’m tired of seeing people reblog really uncomfortable and distressed dogs and labelling the behaviour as ‘cute.’ Thankfully this post is super educational, breaks everything down with examples, and I highly recommend reading it.

NAMED ACE CHARACTER THAT IS IMPORTANT TO THE PLOT

And aro ace as well! *bounces* (Since romantic ace representation tends to get a tad more coverage than aro ace, though all sides of the ace spectrum tend to be seriously shittily represented).

I’m so glad you’re enjoying Mikkel! *bounces* I love him so much, Mister Aggravating Oddly Earnest Thorn in Gwyn’s Side. :D

So newborn fae have the status of their parents? And ooh, I’m curious to see how you do the mixed-alignment in the Ice Plague - I myself am mixed heritage, and it’s so rare to see anyone even think about that topic, let alone do it well.

I’m not sure I will do it well, though I’ll certainly try. There’s an issue with mixed-alignment being an accurate metaphor because no fae is truly mixed-alignment (i.e. Eran Iliakambar, my example, is Seelie), though they can be mixed-species (which is very rare - and Eran Iliakambar is a legit hybrid between ambaros - an exclusively Seelie type of fae, and afrit - exclusively Unseelie. So he ended up a Seelie ambaros x afrit). The way he’s treated for being mixed-species - especially amongst his own family and enclave - I think will far more accurately reflect mixed heritage issues that humans can experience, than coming from mixed alignment parents but…I’m still sorting all that out.

Mixed heritage is actually something I’m dealing with to a point in Tradewinds, since the majority of the cast is poc, with one of the main characters being Malaysian/white Australian and another main character in the ensemble being Indigenous Australian/white Australian (Matan is fine with it (he’s had some issues growing up, but his family have treated him with nothing but respect and he’s carved out a solid position for himself in the world), and Red isn’t (he copped a lot of stigma growing up) - and while it’s not the focus of the book, it does come up. Especially Red not really understanding how Matan can be so well-adjusted, when he, himself, has had so many issues growing up on the fae side of Australia.)

Anyway, like I said, I’m not sure I’ll do any of it well. I’m doing my research and respectfully asking around, and we’ll see what happens. It’s definitely not a topic written about often though!

"He’s the king the Unseelie Kingdom deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A dark light fae."
- some seelie fae, at some point, probably
