TT rejoin I’m manifesting it praying for it…
No offense but… I want her to rejoin thinking Cabby is up to the same old same old but see that Cabby is trying to change and that despite herself she’s made a friend… and at first they don’t want to approach each other because TT feels uncomfortable and Cabby is still sore about the betrayal of her first almost-friend… but they can’t help but entering each other’s orbits… idk I just want the undivorce arc don’t look at me. I want her to introduce and re-introduce Cabby to her friends at the hotel. And I want Cabby to become an honorary Bright Light. 😭😭 is that a crime,
hearing you do research into singaporean culture for m&m makes me so excited! i have heritage there and almost never see southeast asia represented in things i read/watch
I've been to Singapore! It's a beautiful country, and one of the best places to celebrate Lunar New Year :D I don't know if I'll ever be able to travel like that again with Covid, but if I can, Singapore is actually really high on the list of places we have to get back to soon.
Perth, Western Australia is actually closer to Bali, Indonesia than it is to Sydney, Australia (and it's about the same distance to Singapore as it is to Sydney), and as a result, we actually have a huge proportion of SE Asian folk who live here, and a lot of SE cuisine and culture we can access that folks have brought over with them. So the foods that Kadek mentions in Falling Falling Stars are all foods I'm familiar with. Likewise, it's very common for many Perth folk to fly to Bali and nearby regions for holidays and work, because it's a closer flight than, well, other places in our own country. I have a friend who's working in Singapore right now, and I'm not sure if he's coming back! He loves it too much. (Though not the driving, so much dsalkjfsa).
Due to a combination of having some great friends who have SE Asian heritage and being able to share dinner with their families and hobbies and stay over as a kid etc, and just finding other places and foods interesting, and enjoying learning new things, it's been fun to include more of that in my writing in ways that are hopefully respectful. It also just feels natural in the sense that... for me, in my part of the world, we have more to do with say, Southeast Asia than we do many other cultures, and it's annoying that when people represent, god, 'eastern cultures' in fantasy, it's always like... idk, samey, if it's done by white authors. I'm hoping to avoid that, and not do it terribly. I'm definitely more focusing on Indonesia, and then aspects of Singapore as well, including how cosmopolitan and multicultural it is, while still having a strong sense of identity and place.
Fun fact, I share a timezone with Singapore, but I don't share a timezone with any other state in Australia.
Australia is big and weird.
listen i mean, i get it, make tumblr unappealing to corporations but one also has to acknowledge that running tumblr is probably super fucking expensive and everyone is gonna run tumblr into the dirt
