By any chance, do you speak Portuguese?
I do not. I do, however, have an online friend who does and can translate for me.

Additionally, (and I know this is my bias showing), Carla deserved a doll.
And I don’t want to hear how “she’s the bad guy!” Or “she’s just a side character.” If Disney Villains and Descendants can be their own franchises, then Carla Delgado could have gotten her own doll.
Also, a different body mould for the Mateo doll would have been nice considering he and Gabe have different frames canonically.
Sometimes I like to think about the kind of EOA merch we could’ve gotten if they didn’t pull the plug during s2 back in 2018.
One of the things that I like to imagine (besides Queen Elena merch, because that’s a given) is an Elena wardrobe set where she comes in her red mood dress, but has extra mood dresses in the other colours. Or maybe make it a toy that colour changes with sounds and lights or things like that.
There’s definitely so much they could’ve done with the material in s3 and I’m sure people with experience on making merch could come up with more ideas than I ever could.

I am not sure what story you are talking about. If you see this, can you please be more specific so I can give a proper answer?
Also, I must point out I don't speak Portuguese, but I have a friend who does.

I kno it’s been up awhile, but Carla for the character thing?
Tumblr media
THE PRECIOUS SMOL ONE.
For Carla, “wasted potential” applies mainly to the very end of the series. Season three was a hot mess for a lot of reasons (my opinion, don’t come for me), but the way Carla was forgotten about for over half of it is my biggest personal disappointment. The build up to Sunset Carla was great. It just fell off at the very END (I always have to emphasise this) with something of a rushed wrap-up and us never getting to see things like Carla adjusting to her new life or learning to make proper friends.
I’m aware it’s a stretch to say she “did nothing wrong” because she was introduced as an antagonist and did some sketchy stuff that she admits to and apologised for, but I see her character as an example of “understand but don’t condone.” I understand the reasons behind her actions and wanted to see her take steps to improve herself and her situation on screen, but don’t condone much of what she did.
As for her being “done dirty,” that comes from her being underrated and, for a long time, pretty much ignored, by most of the fanbase. I have my theory for this alongside her “being a bad guy” or “just a side character,” but it doesn’t quell some of the disappointment. Carla as a character had a lot of potential and I wish the deeper parts of her ( and my writing about those parts) had gotten more acknowledgment before she was shown to have a softer side on screen, because it was always there.
Carla is a wonderfully layered character who deserved more than she got at the end of canon and in parts of fanon. I love (most) everything about how they built her character and started to reveal different facets of her personality over time. When I say she’s “perfect,” it doesn’t mean I don’t acknowledge her flaws. They’re part of her character. It means that as a character concept and through writing, she was handled pretty well until the veeeeeerrrrry end. And even that was a drop-off of her story rather than degradation of character.

This is why I’ve used aliases online since I was twelve. At first, it was so other kids wouldn’t bully me online like they did in school. Now, it’s to keep my fandom life and real life separate. No one I know in real life (except my BFF (who is sworn to secrecy)) has ANY of my fandom social media and I do not post my face out of cosplay. I don’t even talk to people at work about my interests/fandoms. I drink water and mind my business.
LinkedIn and Facebook are the ONLY sites I use my government name on. And I only have FB to sell shit, keep up with neighbourhood news and peruse a few private groups. I never actually post there because people I know IRL will make stupid and derogatory comments and I ain’t got time for that.
So, if y’all are scared of the idea that social media has to be professional or you won’t get a job, create a separate alias/persona and keep it secret.

What do you think of Carzel (Carla x Marzel)?
Honestly, I don’t have an opinion either way. I don’t personally ship them myself, but I don’t hate it. Ship and let ship, I say.
For me, Marzel just wasn’t a character I attached to, so I have a hard time thinking about him with anyone in my own writing. And with Carla, because she has no real canon interaction with anyone who could be considered a love interest, I prefer to just keep her single. I already made a mistake with her once, and I’m hoping that keeping romance out of her story will make my work more accepted by and palatable to the fanbase.
HOWEVER, I am glad that others do see romance for her and want her to be happy. Because she deserves it.

How about Rose from Titanic for character bingo? Pls?
Tumblr media
HER.
I could go on a seven-part rendition about why Rose Dewitt Bukater DID NOTHING WRONG.
I love everything about her, even her flaws. And girl has been done *dirty* for almost 25 years now by parts of the fanbase, uppity Titanic nerds and the general public. I’m so sick of hearing how she’s stupid, annoying and selfish. She’s SEVENTEEN and has lived a very sheltered and restricted life, of course she’s gonna do dumb shit. And don’t even start with that door shit.
Rose is strong and beautiful, yet broken. And I love that. She’s not perfect and was never meant to be. She just wants a chance to be her true self in a world of people who have always told her who and what to be.

Gabe for the character bingo, please?
Tumblr media
Gabe is my favourite male character in the series.
For him, with “wasted potential” and “not enough screen time” I just mean that there wasn’t enough of him and that his development was sidelined after awhile. Also, he had this whole family and backstory that wasn’t explored enough at all. Like, he’s clearly close with his mother, why did we not get more of that?
Now, I wasn’t in the super early days of the fandom where I hear he was popular, so you can take it with a grain of salt that he “got done dirty.” I just feel that compared to certain other super-duper-popular male characters, he didn’t get a lot of attention from the fanbase. At least not until the Gabaomi confirmation. I suppose his development being subtle and interpersonal plays into this, but he still deserved better.
Also Wish there was a box for “not enough clothes.” Because he needed a few more outfits.

How about Victor Delgado for character opinion bingo?
Tumblr media
Stan single dad Victor.
I suppose by “wasted potential” what I mean is that his (and Carla’s) story was really botched at the very end. We didn’t get any of them adjusting to their new lives and trying to be better. Also, a bit more backstory would have been nice.
And, I said what I said. Victor got done dirty by certain parts of the fanbase when it was more active. Not only is he underrated, but he has was, at times, made out to be a joke to make certain other characters look better.

Hello!! I don't mean to be personal, but does it snow where you live?
Sometimes. It’s pretty rare though, because in order for it to snow, the front has to either be strong enough to make it over the Appalachian mountains or come up from the south. So we get a good snow maybe every few years and piddly snow once or twice a year.

5. What is your favourite trope to write for?
Okay. To be honest, I'm completely ignorant on the names and usages of most tropes. Like, I'm sure I write them, but bloody hell if I can remember what most of them are called.
Anyway, aside from romantic relationships, I just love exploring character dynamics in general, so the one that I do know the name of and thoroughly enjoy writing for is "heterosexual life partners," particularly between women because I'm a sucker for strong girl friendships. This trope is what fuels my fic, Back to Titanic because Rose needed a friend, dammit.
