Makeup: hmmmm, not right now but I wouldn't rule it out.

My political beliefs are super left-leaning and anti-capitalistic. I try to do as little harm as possible but I take a strong stance against things that are harmful or unjust.

I saw the film Equilibrium on TV after a long time and the coats the “Clerics” in that film sport remind me strongly of the one I draw Sego wearing rn, and their vibe sort of reminds me of some of the ideas I have for Sego.
…for some reason this only reminds me how different Sego and Doggy’s designs are. Sego looks like he walked out of some dystopic science fiction setting, and Doggy… looks like she came from a 90s-2000s thing for kids involving going on a fantasy adventure?? I don’t know?
What do I do with this? Try and make them more coherent? Play around with it? what?

I tried playing a roguelike game a few days ago called “Halls of Mist” because it was one of the few I could find that had furry races (in the case of this one, it has cats, frogs, lizards, wolves, mice, goats and BEARS)
- one of the things I did as soon as I got it running was try and roll a character of the mouse people race who was a girl and a Ranger and name her “Giggles”
- I ended up dying very fast every time I played her lmao
- I also rolled a cat dude templar named “Sego” who met his head at the hands of an enemy called a “Headless” (AYYy lmao)
- at some point I made Giggles a Rogue instead because race/class bonuses and actually got really far compared to many of my other attempts
- I also rolled a lizard boy named “Jessy” but he died fast too

I'm going to design a creature that is deeply unpleasant and disgusting.
I'm gonna do that by taking the fursonas/animals that douchebags tend to gravitate towards and mutating them into a discombobulated fuckboy animal
So, regardless of if or it not you're a furry, if you’ve met ANYONE in the furry fandom who is a jerk or a very unpleasant person:
- PM me what species their fursona was if they had one
- if their fursona is a “hybrid” make note of that and tell me what animals they’re comprised of
- if their fursona is a fictional/mythical animal make note of that too
- PM me about how they were a jerk to you
also things i need to note for this project:
- if the person in question was bigoted so if they’re a misogynist or a transphobe or a racist or a homophobe do mention that
- same goes for ableism and fat-shaming
- if they happen to subscribe to any number of MRA or “red pill” beliefs be sure to mention that as well
- also if they have a history of harassment or sexual harassment

and then online I at least get to choose when to interact with anyone but people still fuck around with me by metaphorically expecting me to pick up and interpret signals sent on some frequency i cannot fucking detect,
and then getting MAD when I fail to pick up their weird subtle hoodoo and not interpret their magic words dances properly.
Both cases- It's like I'm being dragged into a game and not given any of the rules and then people get mad when I don't play it right with them but they only tell me AFTER they've gotten pissed off that I've been breaking all the shitty rules like fuck YOU
Doesn't help that i appear to have some trouble both in paying attention to things and to remembering things.
I don't know if any of this is the result of me simply not learning these things properly when i should have or because there are genuine problems with me but it's fucking frustrating.

>also I keep running into people calling her a "whore" or a "slut" for whatever fucking reason
>all the humanizations give her a bob cut and I'm not sure why so few people ever do anything different with the humanizations
>People keep headcanoning Flaky as either a girl or a boy as if other options do not or cannot exist
>the girls in HTF were literally the first time I ever saw girl cartoon characters NOT being "exempt" from violence being inflicted on them in a cartoon. Or at least, the first time I could remember it.

because he is kind of unemployed and has too much time on his hands right now
NOW, I'm not saying this argument is flawless, or that it's sound. It definitely needs a lot of fucking work, but I'm gonna present it to you anyway
basically, the main "gimmick", or in other words, the "shtick" as such, of Happy Tree Friends is that it's a bait-and-switch. It's a prank toon that got incredibly popular.
each episode starts off by presenting you with a harmless-looking adorable pastel-colored world inhabited with lots of cute critters which lures the viewer unfamiliar with the show into a false sense of security.
let me rephrase that- it's deliberately made to look like something out of a children's cartoon or storybook, the latter quite blatantly so in places. Lots of nostalgia is invoked if you're in the older set that saw the cartoons and things HTF pays mild visual tribute to.
you are presented an idealistic, wide-eyed innocent world where you can and possibly do literally easily believe that nothing bad can ever happen. And that's when the show pulls a fast one on you blood starts spurting and the guts are all over the sidewalk, there's brains on a corner and everyone's dead, and fire coming out of a monkey's head.
When the surprise wears off, you can still enjoy the juxtaposition of disgusting, over-the-top bloody violence and adorable candy-colored critters, who ARE genuinely adorable.
BUT, and this is a big but:
Flippy's character design FUCKS THAT CAREFUL SETUP UP.
he just marches in with his army camo and dog tags, and is explicitly a war veteran. And one of the official artworks has him riding a bomb in homage to the ending of Dr. Strangelove.
the presence of his army uniform alone tips you off to the idea that there is a military in the HTF universe, that there is and has been war in the HTF universe, that mass-scale death and violence has occurred in the HTF setting before
So he ruins the "surprise" for newer viewers.
All the other character designs for the HTF characters don't really do that the way Flippy does
Splendid is a superhero, a concept that's already wide-eyed idealistic in a way, and so is already pretty fantastical and works within the "children's book/toon" theme.
Russell is a pirate, but hell, five year olds fucking LOVE pirates. People remember the swords and the hook hands and the eyepatches and the precious booty and the inexplicable Cornwall accent without remembering that violence and bloodshed is involved.
TL;DR: War is very real and soldiers are very real (for us, the viewers), when compared to superheroes and cornwall-accented pirates and so is the violence associated with them- so Flippy ruins the surprise of the violence for the audience.
Flippy is not only a poor design, he's also an incredibly terrible character:
He's THE singular main recurring character shown explicitly and deliberately (as opposed to accidentally or unintentionally like literally everyone else) killing other characters.
And he's hyper-competent and borderline unstoppable at killing other characters, too. Unlike Lumpy who, even when he's flexing his villain muscles, is still a hilarious fuckup.
He seems to BEND the plot of 90% of his episodes to revolve exclusively around him and his murder shtick- like with that Double Whammy two-parter ep and that ep with Cub's tricycle, instead of doing the usual thing HTF does. Though arguably, the tricycle ep passes because it's a tribute to horror movies.
Plus he's a "hollywood psycho". his entire motivation for killing people stems from this... poorly and unfortunately written mental illness. He's got this version of a split personality disorder that only exists in terrible movies.
EDIT: One of my tumblr friends added that:
"another thing for your argument: Flippy is basically a giant ableist stereotype which depicts all people with PTSD as time bombs waiting to go off and kill everyone. It plays on the struggle of someone with PTSD for laughs. Which is pretty fucked up."
EDIT 2: A friend here on deviantART adds that:
"Even the name Flippy implies "flipping out" in a pretty disgusting and ableist way. I mean, after all, they may as well have turned the blatant stereotyping up to 11 and called him Skitzy.
And note, I haven't seen much HTF, nor am I really qualified to critique it accurately, but if all the characters have to die at some point, then what is it about Flippy that makes him the recurring survivor? Other than the fact HTF always starts each episode off all innocent and normal again, Flippy has this air about him of "let's just toy with his trauma so he can get even more triggered in the next episode".
This character, to me, falls into the same category as Seth McFarlane's recurring stereotypes, meant solely to take the piss out of a particular group of people - while failing to provide any logical reason other than derogatory satire."
EDIT 3: And another friend of mine on deviantART sums up the argument about why he's a Mary Sue brilliantly as:
" hes an indestructible "PSYCHO"-esque character who kills everybody every time and is "badass", super rich, has a huge house with a bunch of priceless shit, laides looove him, etc "
EDIT 4: And another friend adds that "Flippy's "official" illness is PTSD, but his symptoms are more similar to DID/MPD", but while even THEN his symptoms do not match up with that of MPD, "Hollywood's idea of MPD does".
He then goes on to add: "I had an uncle who served in 'Nam and has PTSD, and he tends to get more depressed and suicidal than bloodthirsty and insane"
SO, let's go over that again-
egregiously stand-out design, incredibly powerful and murderous, near-unstoppable, forces the plots to focus on him, plus- he's "insane"... That sounds like a "Mary Sue" to me, fucking hell.
... hell, come to think about it, "Double Whammy" comes off as like a really shitty fanfic when I think about it,
Granted, this argument is tainted with bias. I am incredibly biased against Flippy. Mostly because of nasty experiences with some of his fans and because he commands a lot of popularity in spite of not being properly representative of the series and it's shtick.
And because of the glaring hypocrisy in how fans treat "Flippy-Sues" compared to how they treat Flippy. It's very rooted in glaring misogyny which this fandom has a slight undercurrent of- you can spot bits of it in how some of the fans call Giggles a slut.
Though actually, the treatment and condemnation of Mary Sues in general in ALL fandoms is pretty much based on sexism.
Simply put- Flippy gets away with being a Mary-Sue because he's a guy character, and because he's canon, in the same way that, for example, BATMAN gets away with being a Mary Sue. And you can bet that if both of them were suddenly girls instead of guys they'd get hate out the asshole.
And if Giggles was a dude they'd probably treat him like some sort of ladies man or something.
IMO, if the entire HTF show was focused about cute animals engaging in bloody warfare like that Operation Tiger Bomb short was, then Flippy would stand out far less and NOT be a Mary Sue. He fits in well with THAT spin-off world more than with the main HTF world.

Keep in mind that while everything in here is mostly my own opinion/personal preferences but that does not make me exempt for criticism, callouts, and discussion.
FlippyXFlaky One of the HUGE pairings that everyone and their grandma seems to do art for. And one of the pairings I absolutely LOATHE. It's overdone and you can't swing a dead porcupine or grizzly bear corpse around without running into FlippyXFlaky shipping.
What doesn't help is the way it's portrayed most of the time- or the way Flippy is depicted as some sort of "bad boy" Mary-sue deal in most of them (it's kind of like they mashed up his normal personality and his flipped-out one together)
FlippyXPetunia This ship is fairly uncommon but it's been irredeemably ruined for me because I've, to date, met two or three homophobes who liked this ship. Including one who I had quite an extensive feud with because they were an asshole to people who drew non-heterosexual ships.
CuddlesXGiggles This ship is about as overdone as FlippyXFlaky and is also one of the few ships to actually be kind of canon and used really fucking often in the early days of HTF, but I find it kind of bleh now. "Carpal Tunnel of Love" is fun to listen to sometimes though
I do tolerate it a lot more than the previous two ships I've mentioned though
Any non-het ship involving Flippy Is usually okay in my book, because their opponents are usually pieces of gross homophobic shit that crawled out of some heinous anus from Russia or Eastern Europe, and usually likes the subpar FxF and FxP ships.
FlippyXSplendid Okay so most people say this ship makes no sense because the characters have never interacted with each other. Fair enough but that didn't stop anyone from shipping Flippy and Petunia who only interacted ONCE and that was for Flippy to slam her face into a fryer.
FlippyXLumpy I actually started shipping this to spite someone who was a homophobic shithead, and it ended up sticking. To be fair, there is a canon basis for this- they did hang out together and genuinely seemed to enjoy each other's company, also Flip cheers Lumpy on during a swimming contest in the same ep
NuttyXSniffles THIS IS A SHIP I DIDN'T THINK I'D REMOTELY LIKE BUT THEN and her fanart of it happened
FlippyXDiscoBear sSAME AS THE ABOVE
GigglesXNutty I'm not sure where I got into this. I guess I figured since Giggles was the same color as Cotton candy it'd make sense for her to get Nutty's attention
GigglesXFlaky I've only played around with this ship a few times, and I like it. Except for when people try to turn it into a het ship by making Flaky a dude or something.
Also bonus is Giggles is my favorite HTF and Flaky is my bff 's favorite HTF so it's like we're mashing our waifus together
GigglesXPetunia This is one of the "obvious" pairings because they're always being shown hanging out with each other and stuff and being really cute but I don't see enough people on this bandwagon like what the fuck is your problem get on it.
FlakyXCuddles Instead of an abusive ex-military grizzly bear to go with your nervous porcupine how about a prankster sk8er rabbit who wears bunny slippers in public instead
FlakyXLammy It has everything that FlakyXFlippy has except it's about at least a million times better and not overdone
GigglesXRussell Yeah this seems to be the main canon ship they're going for with Giggles right now also it's pretty cute. Especially if you imagine Giggles as being Russell's second in command or both of them dressed as pirates or something
this isn't even the full list of pastel woodland animal ships i endorse I assure you.
the full list is dangerous and powerful and exposure to this much of it already pretty risky
