the only valentines stuff i wanna draw relates to street fighter
i dont want to see any doctor who comments on this
you know why?
because this statue is beautiful. its supposed to symbolize that the angel didnt want them to die. that it wasnt their time to pass on. i went to a local sculptor around my town and asked why most angels are depicted mouring over graves
he said it was because the person committed suicide and the angel said it wasnt their time yet, so they mourned.
and the amazing work on this… the hair.. wings.. arms.
its all amazing handiwork
and really whenever i see a statue of a nice beautiful angel on tumblr a bunch of doctor who’s go and spam it with gifs saying to stay away
i would like to touch one of these sort of statues
they look beautiful
the amount of people who have blatantly gone against what the OP requested them is fucking disgusting, and your “fandom” should be ashamed of itself.
what you’re doing is so fucking disrespectful. do you know who creates statues?? ARTISTS!!! WOAH!!! and everytime you make stupid warn out unfunny jokes about their hard work, you are being an asshole- ignoring their hard work and the reason behind it just to be a WHOVIAN XDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
it’s bad enough you do it on every fucking statue you see. doing it on one that you were specifically told not to just shows that you don’t care about anyone but yourself, you don’t appreciate the hard work and time of artists, you do not respect people’s desires and you do not value human lives, even after they have been taken.
grow the fuck up. this is a picture of a fucking graveyard.
show some damn fucking respect for someone other than your precious doctor.
It’s a weeping angel. It’s impossible not to immediately associate it with Doctor Who—and just because someone says I’m “not allowed” to comment on something in a certain way doesn’t mean I have to respect that. I can comment on anything I want to in any way I want to because I’m an autonomous human being with my own individual feelings about things that may not conform to what others find appropriate.
And I personally don’t give a fuck about some hokey shit like an angel statue that’s weeping because “it wasn’t such and such’s time!” You know what? It’s never anyone’s time and it’s always everyone’s time. The whole view of life and death expressed here strikes me as antiquated and rooted in ignorance.
Yeah, it’s pretty as symbolism for a romantic view of the concept of death, but why is my turning it into a symbol of one of the most famous antagonists of one of the most popular TV shows less valid? Because you’ve deemed it less serious or less worthy of concern? If so, then I’m sorry, but I must have missed the part where you explained why my behavior should reflect your thoughts and values instead of my own.
I guess what I’m really trying to say here is fuck you.
Valid or not, there should be a sense of respect for those who have passed. And for those that respect their passing.
It’s similar to allowing a child to run and scream during a funeral - yes, they don’t understand what’s going on - yes, they don’t know why everyone’s so quiet — but with or without knowledge of what is happening, what is happening is still happening. And in that ritual - traditional, antiquated, or obsolete - the respect of silence must be held. You are not forced to weep with those that have attended, you are not forced to think the same as them, and you are not forced to believe the same as them, but that silence must be held for respect. Ignorance is no excuse, but only a grace period. The child must be told to be quiet or must leave.
Now, in relation to this, there are children who will call every cat the name of their family’s cat. It’s cute, adorable, but not really acceptable when they become older. It shows a lack of understanding if they do, sticking to only elementary comparisons rather than common ground categorizations that help with their mental growth and social understanding. It also makes them assume that all cats are like their cat - which, if praised, allows them to give the same treatment to other thought associations… which leads to prejudice, racism, sexism, and etc due to them assuming that all ______ are like ______ with disregard to the individual in front of them.
Combine those two ideas and you have fans who will point at everything with a sense of childish disrespect. Yes, it does look like so-and-so, but to do so without regards to the original content and meaning is not only rude: but very childish.
Yes, people shouldn’t force you to believe the same as them, and people shouldn’t say what you can and cannot think — but to do as you please in spite of them or despite of them is immature and closed-minded in itself.
So, sure, think of it with your Whovian fandom, that is fine. But please also respect the meaning of these statues - if not in their religious sense, then in their philosophical and psychological sense… and especially in their history. And please, respect the graves that are marked here, for their history and contribution to life, even if you have not experienced them yourself. That’s not to say you should bow to them, but at least respect their existence -even if gone- and consider that first and foremost.
It’s similar to how Naruto fans will unknowingly mock the history and discipline of shinobi. Yes, they do so because they’re ignorant of what actually occurred in that time and place and in that profession, but they push it so far as to make their standards and beliefs -one built purely from fictional fandom- stand on a higher standard than the real, physical one. [This is also similar to those who think that all martial artists make noises like Bruce Lee… which is unknowingly mocking to the history of these martial arts, which are associated with the history of entire kingdoms and cultures and family lines, which disrespects the thoughts and actions of people and individuals only for the childish entertainment of the ignorant masses.] One can respect the original standard and still be a fan, but most do not - and that’s where this hatred against fans originally stems from.
So yes, that’s certainly fine that you associate that statue with Dr. Who lore. It’s fine that when you find out that hidden ninja villages actually existed that you associate it with Naruto lore. But respect and know the original history and purpose more than the fictional.
You’re a grown adult [Or perhaps you wish to be respected like one, depending on those who read this]. Not all cats are named after your cat. You’re smarter than that. You can compare all of them to your cat, but don’t be disrespectful and honestly treat them all like how you treat your cat.
Association helps with familiarization. But you should also know the object’s own definition and purpose. Otherwise it’s fine for others to associate you and your thoughts with every other crazed fan rather than a sensible individual that happens to just be a great fan.
I understand what you’re trying to say. But you are also encouraging the negative aspects of a fandom by defending your position.
when u want to comment on how wrong someone else is but you don’t want to start shit
