Day 26: Meow, Anamanaguchi
meow! meow meow meow meow! meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow meow!
wanted to try drawing this loser’s hair
I think I saw a headcanon somewhere that his desmond hair is a wig to resemble what his hair was like when he was formerly desmond sycamore, which would account for how his hair as descole is shorter and a little sandier in color, and his hair in the last MM cutscene has a really cool texture like it’s curly but it was cut unevenly
maybe he could have also started graying early, which would also attribute to the change in color from the reddish brown to the duller brown
idk just some thoughts
I’m pretty sure no one actually thinks social anxiety is “cute” or a “quirky character trait” and although depression is romanticised sometimes in my personal experience ignorance about mental health comes far, far more from people saying or even believing that they have social anxiety because they are occasionally shy or thinking they have depression because they are sad sometimes or cry easily, and, vice versa, the idea that depression is just being a bit sad and being too ‘lazy’ to shake it off. Both these things feed into the shame surrounding mental health issues in our society. Somehow mental health terms get thrown around all over the place and yet we never actually discuss them.
Anyway, I’m not trying to place blame on anyone because it’s an issue ingrained in society which I think we as individuals can tackle by simply talking about it and discussing our experiences which, as you know, I always advocate. I’m just saying that we really don’t need any more posts saying “social anxiety is not cute”. No one thinks it is. Some people might think shyness is cute, but shyness and social anxiety are not the same thing at all, and that is the issue we need to tackle.
