I’m not going to reblog it and give it attention but ughhhhh there’s a Super Mario rethink with Peach as the main character and it turns her into a tits out bombshell with legs longer than Sailor Moon’s.

Been a while now since I did my own art challenge! I’ve gotten a teeny bit rusty at character design since the original post but it’s still just as fun.
Also holy shit 10,000 notes when did that happen??? Damn, you guys. I’m glad you liked it so much!
Mary Bowser, former slave of the Van Lew family, infiltrated the Confederacy by working as a servant in the household of Jefferson Davis. Bowser was assumed to be illiterate, and as a black woman was below suspicion. Practically invisible, she was able to listen to conversations between Confederate officials and read sensitive documents, gathering information that she handed over to the Union.

This needs to be a movie. Like, now.
I’d watch this movie.
How is this not a movie?
She is also the classiest lady. Look at that hat. Look at that dress.
[I wrote this in response to a question about same sex marriage in Tomodachi Life. I’m reposting it so the original person doesn’t get harassed or anything]
The thing about that is that it already existed in Tomodachi Life, in a sense, due to a bug that nintendo patched out of the game. A lot of Japanese users refused to download the patch, and a lot of queer Western players (like myself), have been pretty vocal about wanting the option for same-sex marriage available.
It doesn’t seem like it should be a big deal, but it kinda is. There’s the larger question of why queer relationships are a BUG in the first place instead of something actually allowed and normalized in Tomodachi Life, but also, like—the entire fact that they patched queerness out of the game sits really poorly with me and it makes me intensely uncomfortable.
Nintendo makes a lot of noise about appealing to everyone and connecting people (touch generations, etc), but when it comes down to it they consider queerness incidental at best (e.g. crossdressing in Animal Crossing) and an aberration at worst (Tomodachi Life).
And also, something really important: “not every game needs queer romance” but how many AAA games can you name off the top of your head that actually do contain queer romance in the first place? (Okay, now how many of those are actually respectful about it?) It’s not like AAA games are a market oversaturated with queer shit, BOY I WISH THAT WERE THE CASE, but as it is, it’s us grasping at straws and having even those taken away.
It would be a HUGE deal if Nintendo actually explicitly came out and said, like, anything in support of queer people even if they erased their presence from Tomodachi Life, but that’s not the case, so far that I’ve seen. So as I see it, this is just a particularly transparent example of Nintendo being shitty and backwards.
