Can’t we just organize a les mis week to promote non-fanon based headcanons, art and fan fictions?
I admit the reason behind this is rather selfish, but am I really the only one tired of seeing the same old things?
Ferre with glasses, Jehan as an androgynous guy with braided, red or blonde hair and light eyes, covered in flowers, curly-haired Courfeyrac who has only one thing in mind, big guy Bahorel who lives only for bar fights, Grantaire cured of his addictions only thanks to Enjolras’ love, ginger!Feuilly who only talks about Poland, Joly and bald and black Bossuet only used for comic relief.
(I’m talking about Les Amis because I blog about them mostly).
This started as a critic to character designs, but there are many tropes here that I constantly see everyday. I’m not saying they are bad or should be erased from the fandom, I don’t have something against them, but I despise the lack of diversity. Every interpretation of the characters is okay, but when is only ONE interpretation, it could get boring.
I want to encourage people to get creative with new designs, including poc and different genders and sexualities.
Could we give it a try?

On the one hand, I agree that promoting diversity is never a bad thing, especially when it comes to tropes that seem overwhelmingly popular, to the point of erasing other interpretations.

That being said…

If you’re tired of seeing the same old things, perhaps the impetus needs to not be on writers and creators to do something about that, but rather you — the broad you, not you specifically — to do something about it. There are a lot of fics (and artwork, though I admit fics are more my area) that don’t rely on those tropes that already exist, and by saying that those are the same tropes you keep seeing, that tells me that you’re not reading those fics.

And as a fic writer who has occasionally written things that push back against some of those tropes, often to find that the fics that do push back against those tropes get less recognition, less notes, and less readership, it irks me to see this being suggested as if this isn’t already something that happens, that has happened, and that will continue to happen, even if people aren’t reading said things. At what point does the impetus fall not on the creators to ensure that they’re writing or drawing things that don’t fall into fanon tropes, but on the readers to seek out the fics and artwork that already don’t?

So maybe the idea needs to be less about new material — though I doubt anyone in the fandom would mind so much if more or new people wanted to contribute in that regard — and more about taking the time to seek out the things that already exist that don’t fall into fanon, and promote those and bring recognition to authors and artists who most likely didn’t receive it the first time around because what they wrote or drew or created didn’t fall into the fanon tropes that people seem to love.

Of course, I was generalising in the first post, because even if I wanted to, I wouldn’t be able to make a list of every fanwriter and fanartist that write and draw things that distance themselves from the tropes.
I know that works like these exist, and I’m trying to spread it as I can, with my limited resources.
I think the matter you brought up is somewhat useless, because the purpose of the week, as I proposed it, was to highlight those works that receive less attention because they don’t answer to ‘fandom laws’, as well as encourage more people to express their points of view that separate themselves to the more popular interpretations, something those people may be afraid of doing exactly because of this.
Until the majority of people will consider the more popular interpretations as the only interpretations out there, secondary interpretations will never have the recognition they deserve. Thus, this week wants to show an alternative to whom isn’t aware of their existence.
I never said creators are guilty of expressing themselves even through fandom tropes. That’s their way to be happy and I absolutely respect it. I just wanted a week in which things could be different, without hate between fanon and non-fanon.
So, basically, me and you said the same thing.
And for what concerns me, in the week everyone could post works already existing, if they wanted to.
Thank you for letting me know your opinion c: I hope we’re clear now. If I misunderstood you or you want to continue the conversation, feel free to do so.

i think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy

because they know what it’s like to feel absolutely worthless

and they don’t want anybody else to feel like that

That’s absolutely not true and it would help if you started considering them as people and not some sort of holy creature.
Everyone copes with his sadness differently and yes, you can hurt in your sadness. You may even don’t care at all for other people when you’re sad.
Stop romanticizing it.

colonelgeorgespunmercy ha risposto al tuo post “Can’t we just organize a les mis week to promote non-fanon based…”

(maybe then I can actually post things about tiny mtf joly???? Yes this is a good I like this idea)

Of course, that would be wonderful c: If you like the idea help me spread it, I’m not fandom famous and I’d like it to reach as many ears as possible <3

Save Patron Minette 2K14.

Save Azelma’s character, don’t make her live in the shadows of her siblings.
Save Babet’s character, give him more depth and background that Victor Hugo give us on him.
Save Brujon’s character, for God’s sake, you could include him in somethings.
Save Claquesous’ character, have him be terrifying and pissed at the world, but never give too much away about who he is.
Save Gueulemer’s character, give him something more than his brawn, and it can’t be brains.
Save Montparnasse’s character, he’s not Éponine’s ex-boyfriend that terrorizes Jehan. He’s only a boy that’s forced into this world.
