NO FREAKING WAY.
I can’t believe I’m actually enjoying this as much as I am. It’s hammy but I’ve always had a soft spot for Musketeer adaptations.
I especially thought I wouldn’t like what they’ve done with Porthos, given that he’s supposed to be a bit older…. And a bit rounder than the others, but actually this one has become possibly my favourite next to Aramis (but Aramis always was my favourite!).
Greek history jokes? Minotaur jokes? Anyone?
still my favorite

Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
I feel like this is sort of classist because not everyone has the means to follow their passions, whether they’re “creative” or not. It takes resources that some people just might not have. Money may not buy happiness, but it does buy food, heat, and other necessities.
Yep. Classist as all hell. “Start a yarn shop!” is not useful advice for someone who doesn’t have access to the huge amount of money and knowledge it takes to start and successfully run a business.
Also, some of us have interests that it’s really not possible to make money from, no matter how creative we get. I rather enjoy video games. I will never make a living playing them. Ever. “Become a professional gamer!” Yeah, as if. I have coordination and reaction time issues because of my disability. There is literally no way I could be good enough to be a professional competitive gamer. I like video games, but I’m not all that good at them.
So yeah. IF you have a hobby that happens to have the potential to make you money, and IF you already have the resources to make that happen, THEN go ahead and do what you love for a living. Just be aware that a huge portion of the population doesn’t have that option, no matter how much they’d like to because the system is so thoroughly stacked against them.
