…for your support all these years. Even before I was in the fandom, you all were drawing pictures of me with my favorite character, Malik!
What…? Those are drawings of Altaïr? But, you’re drawing a white guy with blond or brown hair! (I dye my hair a lot, but I’m naturally blond.) Altaïr is a middle eastern man with tanned skin and black hair! How could these be drawings of him!? Certainly since you all get so upset about whitewashing of newer POC characters, you wouldn’t DREAM of creating or reblogging art of a POC character who’s been whitewashed to the point where people forget that he was never white to begin with!
See, that has to be me! He has the same stupid facial hair, and up until I got a mohawk, that’s how my hair looked. They even have my one of my favorite things; Black Kittens! That is EXACTLY what Frisk looked like as a baby!
There’s no WAY it’s Altaïr. This is Altaïr…
I see tanned, or even “brown” skin, and very clearly in the bottom picture black hair! Heck, it’s even in the game disc when you pop the sucker in your XBox or whatever! He’s right there, staring you in the face like: “Come get some!”
Now, for comparison…
This stupid looking mother fucker is me.
Now obviously, I’m white. I worked outside all summer, but my tan is beginning to fade. The lighting in my living room is bad, but my hair is light, too.
I like to think of myself as a logical person, so when I see drawings like this:
and there are a lot of them, that it looks a lot more like me than it does Altaïr. Sure the piercings aren’t there, but I take those out for work and cosplay anyway!
So, Assassin’s Creed Fandom, I’d like to thank you for drawing so many pictures of me, kissing my favorite character! You’ve been so kind all these years.
