I think it's fine as long as it isn't Daisy Ridley doing it specifically.Also, I know it's supposed to be Rey the character and not her actress, but using the likeness of a real person in your fetish art is really fucking weird.
You know, if I was just a bit more cynical I'd say that Lily ditched the plot about G moving on with another Gardevoir was because the idea of an ex, or someone who showed romantic interest in Lily, actually getting over him and moving on with their life would feel like a blow to his ego...Honestly, as a slice of life drama, having conflict just be 'conversation followed by moping' wouldn't necessarily be the wrong way to present.
The actual problem is that it's the same conversation, over and over. Lily's stuck in a loop where she has to keep Gardevoir miserable in order to justify her character (because there's simply no other source of conflict-- which, given that her Pokemon world is a dystopian nightmare, is astounding). You can absolutely indulge in fucking over one character constantly and still make an interesting story if you know how to pace things and you're careful about actually developing their character as things go on, but this is reliant on (1) being able to pace things and (2) actually developing the character. The latter especially requires that character to actually have multiple facets of their personality so they aren't solely defined by their one core conflict.
But Lily doesn't understand pacing so that's out the window.
And G has been completely reduced to just this-- pining for Lily. Everything she does is motivated by her blind devotion to Lily. Everything about her is defined by the fact that she wants to fuck Lily. Therefore every conflict and every conversation she has revolves entirely around her relationship with Lily. Even when she talks to the other Pokemon it all somehow comes back to Lily, and the point's been addressed multiple times by now. Obviously it's silly to expect somebody who psychically bonded themselves forever to somebody else to get over it quickly, but this is where that whole 'development' thing comes in. If G's conflict (and her response to it) were actually evolving it would be one thing, but Lily just wants to write this one specific conflict and then never truly resolve it, and seems to think that adding more layers to it will somehow make it 'deeper' when it's really just made it self-contradictory and confusing.
It occurs to me that, for somebody who claims to thrive on character-driven stories and hates lore, she seems to think that the ideal way to change up this conflict is to keep piling on lore while having the characters remain static.
Knowing that Marah is going to show up after this at least implies there's hope for things changing, but I have a feeling Lily will still manage to shoehorn G never quite letting go of Lily. She did the same thing with Mags' Oedipal complex in her Scars vignettes.
I'm pretty sure the Ralts line is dying out because all the Gardevoir are gay.
Weird thing about all this, too-- Lily previously explained that there can't be a 'breeding program' for the Gardevoir line because Gallade are infertile and there are only four viable candidates (in the... entire world, apparently), and all four of them are actually not viable for various reasons, ranging from genetic disease to mate-bonding to being dead.
I don't think Lily understand what 'viable' means.
But she implied that these four Gardevoir were basically the only ones that could possibly be used for breeding. But now she's going to introduce Marah, and Cala (the abandoned baby Ralts) already showed up on her doorstep despite them being so rare, and oh, yeah, G herself was apparently the result of an IV-breeding operation (and apparently has perfect IVs and yet was just found in a pet shop?) so what happened to the alter Ralts that would've been hatched from that program?
Well, Lily's also expressed her disdain for consistency and continuity and thinks that you can just do whatever you want if it makes an 'interesting story', so convenience is very much part and parcel for her writing methodology and she legitimately seems to think that not only is there not a problem with that, but that it's good writing practices.
I though she just scrapped the 'horn gets damaged' plot. Last time she posted her 'upcoming arcs' the last one was 'Marah moves in' and that was within the last week. Did she actually decide to get rid of it?
Because if so, well, ignore that part about how there might be some semblance of development for G. That's funny.
if I had been around at the time I would have put a frickin' essay in her inboxI sincerely hope people spammed Lilyvoir
That would just be perfect
Here that? The only “correct” response is to admit fault even if you’re innocent. Because saying you’re innocent means you’re guilty, and admitting fault means you’re guilty too. You’re always guilty.View attachment 1140380

How many different tactics has Lily used to deflect being called out?
Star wars rambling coming strong:
Hm, the more I find myself thinking about these relationships, all of them, the more I’m baffled I am, it’s a trainwreck and I want to look away because I mostly visit here to see people rip on a shitty comic not to watch an ugly version of any of those awful CW shows but this is entertaining and sticks with me somehow.Well, birds of a feather
Honestly I'm noticing a pattern of abuse victims or mental health issues in Lily's relationships.
Lily said it was an "Amicable break up" but lets be real here. Carousel was the one doing the breaking up. One look at Lily's face tells me they've never been in a relationship that they ended on their terms.Hm, the more I find myself thinking about these relationships, all of them, the more I’m baffled I am, it’s a trainwreck and I want to look away because I mostly visit here to see people rip on a shitty comic not to watch an ugly version of any of those awful CW shows but this is entertaining and sticks with me somehow.
There’s a part of me that sympathizes with these girls. Lily’s options for girlfriends are hilarious though, a girl almost a decade her junior who has a boyfriend already and a literal less popular copy of herself. Ginger, I admit, is fine looking enough for a twenty year old, I’m close to Lily age wise and I can’t see myself being into a girl who looks younger than twenty and who’s art looks it’s from someone five years younger than that. Mikaila meanwhile remains ugly as sin and looks emaciated in that picture posted here. Just because I empathize doesn’t mean I don’t have eyes.
It’s hilarious also because she allegedly dumped Carousel for Mikaila. That’s a huge downgrade and highlights the differences between who Lily says she is and who she actually is. She has a pretty (not my type but Carousel is the only one of Lily’s girlfriends who could be considered attractive outside of the tumblr bubble), affectionate and forgiving, educated, artistic girl her own age who, as an actual person of color could have educated her or at least given her some basis that she knows what she’s saying even though she doesn’t and she dumps her for the sycophantic puppet that parallels her, will get engaged and uproot after less than a year probably because she works a shitty food service job, shits out art at a ridiculous breakneck pace making it garbage on the eyes and can only bring her down as an actual white woman (not even lying about herself like Lily tries to) who uses her black friends as an argument. And someone she met as a teenager is her other girlfriend. Showing that she had a chance at an almost normal relationship and decided to chuck it out the window for two girls because of their age and lack of backbone, would adopt all her opinions and marry her.

It's debatable about who broke up with who. Carousel is a bit of a pussy whipped bitch. She defended Jerry still after the break up and the abuse a few anons gave her. She let Jerry still use her designs and ideas in his shit comic. I feel like Makaila gave Jerry an ultimatum out of jealousy. Either her or Carousel and since Makaila was the only one seemingly willing to do the comic for free Jerry picked her. It would explain why Carousel would blame herself at leas in some part and why Jerry believes they can still be good friends without seemingly doing anything publically with her and forgetting they dated.Lily said it was an "Amicable break up" but lets be real here.

According to Lily she dumped Carousel because they were both dealing with a lot and Lily picked herself over Carousel shocking no one, but they did the Princess and the Frog in a minute together and she was in the last stream. So yeah, pussy whipped. That’s abuse for you. Lily targets vulnerable girls and they either get discarded or changed into puppets. And Mikaila making an ultimatum lines up with that one person’s batshit post that might have actually been true.It's debatable about who broke up with who. Carousel is a bit of a pussy whipped bitch.

Yeah, don't ask why your friend had an anxiety attack and focus on when he didn't do it for you and respond with violence if they reply with "apologies".I know there is some truth to this argument, but for someone with mental illness actions as this are much heavier than for someone healthy and being understandable as the first instinct is important, instead of responding that way and causing harmPeet's looking in the mirror again.
