  6. I'm watching Sailor Moon for the first time and at this point (sailor moon s) the only one of the inner senshi I can really see as straight is Minako, but even then, I don't know. They seem like a bunch of bi girls, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. How do you see them?

    They’re all queer. Minako may come off as straight in the anime, but in the manga she is queer as fuck. Here’s how I see them.

    Usagi- bi (I was gonna say pan, but actually I do think she finds different things attractive in men, women and inbetween) and potentially eventually polyamorous

    Rei- open homoromantic asexual in the manga and PGSM and probably Crystal, closeted (but will eventually come out) lesbian in the 90s anime

    Ami- biromantic ace (or maybe just bi- hard to say without more evidence)

    Mako- bi- tends to favor boys, but when she crushes on a girl, she crushes hard (see: Ami and Haruka)

    Minako- pansexual

    Haruka and Michiru- lesbian space princesses

    Setsuna- bi- equal level crush on Serenity and Endymion

    Hotaru- lesbian

    Chibiusa- bi like mama

    Why do you think that they are ALL queer…?

    How is Usagi bi? She isn’t in love with Haruka or Seiya (and even doesn’t know that Seiya is a girl until pretty late in the 90’s anime).
    Rei has something close to a relationship with a man in the old anime (not saying anything about the other stuff…).
    How do you get Ami’s vibes…? From where…? And how is she romnatically connected to Makoto?
    Also I don’t think that admiring a woman (what you count as a “crush”) determines one sexuality (Makoto’s admiration for Haruka).
    Why is Minako pansexual? (In the manga she has something for Rei, in the old anime she’s into boys - or do you consider her crush on Yaten as evidence?)
    Setsuna has a crush on Endymion - that one’s true. But she just respects her queen… That doesn’t count as a crush.
    Why is Hotaru a lesbian? Because she is close to Chibiusa…? Is that also the reason why you count Chibiusa as bisexual? Being close to a person also doesn’t determine your sexuality…


    I don’t think that making people more queer than they are is better than making queer people heterosexual…

    the better question is, why the fuck do you care about my headcanons? Do not follow my blog if you’re going to bother me with your heteronormative bullshit.

    and you’re right, Usagi is so completely straight, there is no evidence she’s bi.

    She completely platonically gets off on lingerie clad friends groping her breast

    image

    Minako is doing some really heteorsexual boob groping in her most heterosexual outfit too. 

    True, Usagi is known for going on buses specifically to check out hot girls, then getting hearts in her eyes and following them off the bus bc in her words “she’s so pretty”

    image

    How on earth could anyone read that as queer?

    image

    Note the official translation had her saying “I’ll forgive anything if it’s a pretty girl” or “I’ll do anything a pretty girl tells me to” something that people would be JUST SILLY to think is a sign Usagi is attracted to pretty girls.

    And there was totally never the slightest sign she was attracted to Haruka

    image

    how heterosexually her heart pounds and she swoons slightly as she prepares for haruka to kiss her, offering no resistance.

    image

    Usagi completely heterosexually had a dream about Haruka kissing her after it happened and woke up flushed and feeling like she’d cheated on Mamoru, which I’m not sure why she’d think that. considering how straight she is.

    image

    In the anime, she was stalked Haruka for an entire episode and asked if she had a girlfriend in a heterosexual way, was head over heels about the idea of dancing with her in a heterosexual way, and the other girls swooned and were jealous of usagi for dancing with her in a heterosexual way.

    And you’re right! Rei had a guy who has a crush on her in the anime! It’s true that she said outright she didn’t have any feelings for him and simply admired his devotion to her in her R episode with Koan, but we all know women aren’t allowed to decide whether they want to be in a relationship with a guy who likes him. If a guy likes them, they are OBLIGATED to return their feelings! And Rei definitely wasn’t know to have really gay moments with Usagi.

    image

    and it’s not like Usagi ever teased her about possibly being gay, or that she tried to hide an interest in attractive women.

    image

    I’m such a silly, where do I get this stuff.

    And she comes off as so hetero in the manga. Definitely nothing ever implied there.

    image

    nooooope. Nothing implied with Minako either (ps i did say Minako might come off as straight in the anime- however, since her anime character wasn’t as developed, i tend to fill in gaps with her manga and pgsm characterization.)

    definitely they weren’t super queer in PGSM or anything either.

    image

    image

    image

    (don’t think being “they type who doesn’t like boys” means Rei isn’t straight. It’s a new type of straightness we haven’t identified but we’re working hard)

    And yeah, that Makoto and her platonic fascination with Ami’s butt, that she doesn’t take her eyes off for a full minute

    image

    And how could I read Chibiusa and Hotaru’s friendship as anything but platonic? I mean, Hotaru totally platonically fondling Chibiusa’s naked chest.

    image

    totally platonically gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes. while naked. Foreheads touching.image

    this completely platonic scene

    image

    Hotaru may have never shown any interest in boys, but you’re right, i should read her as straight regardless.

    how could anyone think that was gay, with that phrasing. Especially since Mamoru watches on and describes it as “giving his daughter away as a bride”. Platonically.

    I’m so sorry that I, a silly, stupid queer woman, dared try to read any of these characters as queer. Everyone is straight until proven otherwise, you’re right. You’ve shown me the way with your hetero wisdom.

    (guess what? Even if this wasn’t all true? It wouldn’t fucking matter. I can read characters however I want, and no one needs “evidence” they are not straight. Straight should not be the fucking default, and queer people can look for representation and read relationships as romantic or platonic. You can bet if they were het, none of these relationships would be read as platonic. And there is a much evidence for a crush on Serenity for Pluto as there is for Endymion- neither are outright confirmed in the text of the manga, just “admiration”. Naoko says Setsuna has “adulterous” feelings which could refer to BOTH OF THEM (I doubt that’s what she MEANT, but she didn’t say anything concrete, so guess what? I can interpret it as I want). So get the hell out of here with your assumptions).

    (Also I read Haruka as genderqueer in the manga. I hope that makes you REALLY upset).

  8. "It’s dark now. But they feel each others’ breath. And they know all they need to know. They kiss. And they feel each others’ tears on their cheeks. And if there had been anybody left to see them, then they would look like normal lovers, caressing each others’ faces, bodies close together, eyes closed, oblivious to the world around them.

    Because that is how life goes on. Like that.”

    My name is Virginia Leigh and I am not a very popular artist on tumblr.

    This is mostly due to the fact that I’ve been working two jobs on top of going to school.

    However, at this point in time, I am facing eviction. So I am opening up commissions to help make it easier for me to put down for a new apartment. I am to vacate my current apartment by August 31st. I will take commissions up until the week before.

    Character design is my specialty, but I’ve made marked improvements with my environmental design over the past year. I primarily work in traditional mediums, and then scan into Photoshop to digitally color. If you would like the original work as well I am more than willing to work something out.

    There is very little I will say no to (as I do love challenges), but if you would like any of the following, I will have to decline:

    • Pornography (no matter what term you prefer to use for it)
    • Gratuitous depictions of violence (ie: rape)
    • Racist/sexist/transphobic/etc. images

    Prices are in USD and I accept Paypal. Each commission comes with a smaller JPG in RGB (for web posting) and a larger JPG in CYMK (if you would like to print it out.)

    Understanding that I, too, have skipped over many commission posts (and I will also understand if you are in a similarly cash-strapped situation) if you like my work, a reblog is always appreciated.

    Thanks for reading this far, and I hope you’re doing well.

    - V

    Help my friend! She is an amazing artist and human! Plus, damn, don’t you want to commission her??
