this coat was inspired by the romulan commander from tos
a while back I drew a few outfits I could wear as both a trek fan and a young professional, here . I had planned to do another round but abandoned it. But when I was searching for something else I came across this half started coat, finished it, and here ya go.star trek outer wear for the young professional trek fan.
There is something so comic and delightful about Voldemort’s particular brand of over the top insanity. Like, he loves snakes, like OMG he loves snakes, he looks like a snake, talks like a snake, probably dreams about snakes.
I love the concept that Voldey is basically a magical hobo. Living on someone’s head and later eating unicorn roadkill only to emerge out of a stew pot in a grave yard. Voledmort The Dark Hobo Lord.
But in spite of the over-the-topness of Voldey I LOVE the Harry Potter universe and I probably always will. So here, for your enjoyment, is Voldemort, the Dark Hobo Lord.
Reblogging this as much for the commentary as for the excellent art.
And yet fanfiction is an inherently transformative work which, by its very nature, strives to address or change some flaw that exists in canon, even if that flaw is “why isn’t there more of this thing?!” Fanfiction has addressed the lack of gay men by making straight characters gay; it’s addressed countless cultural misappropriations with wildly varying AUs; it’s addressed canon plot holes and timeline issues with fix-it fics and crossovers. Fanfic is the show your show could be like, if only you dared to dream.
But for all its transformative nature, fanfiction and fandom still suffer from a real dearth of femslash. Beyond the simple fact that very few girls exist in canon materials, the societal emphasis on the male gaze seems to have affected fanficcers’ creativity to such an extent that even in our own fantasies, we cannot give women a fair shake. Just as the answer to “Why is there so much slash?” cannot be boiled down to “ Well, straight girls are horny”, the answer to “Why isn’t there any femslash?” cannot be boiled down to “Well, straight girls don’t care.” The bias against female characters and female pleasure is an ingrained, institutionalized problem which won’t go away on its own."
