"Hey Sour Cream, who's this song by?" Steven asked, looking back behind Jenny; Sour Cream smiled some at him--just a faint upturn of his lips.
"Daft Punk, little dude. They're my fave."
"It's catchy." Steven said with a grin as he bopped his head to the beat, mimicking some of the DJ's signature 'scratching' and earning a good-natured laugh from Jenny and Buck; Steven tugged Buck's jacket a bit more closed as the car continued down the city streets towards the city line; Buck looked thoughtful before finally speaking--resting his chin on his fist.
"So...how'd you end up in Empire City, Steven? Some kind of Gem thing, right?"
Steven nodded and passed the broken device back to Buck, who started to look it over; Sour Cream lightly brushed his fingertips over the destroyed screen--it kind of

Chapter 1: Take Me Home Tonight
This was bad.
Not "world-ending super-weapon" bad or "corrupted Gem on a rampage" bad...but "don't touch that--oh no" bad.
Steven frowned as he walked along the sidewalk in Empire City--the rectangular device in his hand had, finally, stopped sparking electricty and smoking, but that probably only meant that it was a complete lost cause.
He stopped under a streetlight and looked around the clustered up storefronts crowded together on either side of the street. He looked up at the night sky--skyscrapers and bright lights blocking all of the stars out...even the moon was just barely visible. Cars either sped past him or all-but crawled along the still busy street as too many people to count took in all of the nightlife a big city had to offer
Steven shook his head and dropped his arms to his sides--he wanted to go home. He'd tried asking people which way back to Beach City but everyone ignored him and by now, he'd just given up and decided to try to find h

Before and After
Maybe it was his body that caught my eye--tall and gorgeously muscled like a model, with a rich tan that you only got from being born that way...and clothed just as flawlessly in those dark-hued Armani suits and silk shirts that he's so fond of. Training and sparring sessions were the only time I've ever seen him in anything that could ever be considered as 'dressed down'--I had trouble focusing whenever he was in the room in a suit...forget even thinking clearly when he has that body of his practically on display in those sweatpants and a T-shirt that's all-but glued to his torso. I've seen people stop whatever they're doing when he's in the room--he seems to command attention like royalty.
At first, I was jealous of him--I was shorter and lankier in frame...I had always had a good sense of self-respect towards my looks, my body, and I thought I dressed as well as I could...but next to him, I looked mediocre. He looked like the 'Prince' and that made me the 'Pauper' by comparision--hi

Hate
"Hate is the root of your power--what is it that you hate?"
"I hate the soldiers who destroyed my world--the ones who slaughtered my family...the ones who stole everything from me!"
"Your anger, your sorrow, your pain...all of it is only fuel for your hate--so again, I ask you...what is it that you hate?"
"I hate the goddess who abandoned her people!! What merciful and loving deity lets her followers be slaughtered like common beasts by their enemies?!"
"What is it that keeps you awake? What is it that torments your every moment of breath--what is it that you hate the most?"
"...Myself."
"...Yourself?"
"The soldiers...I can kill--I can slaughter them as they slaughtered my village...I can destroy them! My people's goddess...I can turn my back on--I can ignore the preachings and what others tell me. I hate all of them...but...I hate myself more than anything."
"Why do you hate yourself?"

Groups

Friends

Basically, my friend Dante--NeoTwilightPhantom--started a forum page over on gaiaonline about this and, after asking him in a PM if I could repost it here--he agreed--...well, here it is.

NeoTwilightPhantom: 
Cosplay is big--has been for a while it seems.
It's come down to it that I go into my favorite coffee shop here in New York and always run into atleast one group of cosplayers planning a group shoot or discussing solo work. As an artist, I'm friends with a few of these people and they're great people.
However, I have a story I wish to share...
I was at the coffee shop last Monday; as normal, there was group, at a table and booth behind me, discussing a Marvel X-Men group cosplay they were going to do for a convention. One of the group said "I'd make a great Shatterstar", but the others all said "No. You'd be a better fit as Professor X."
Out of curiosity, I turned around when the first one complained about the group's opinion and saw why they were telling him who to cosplay as...it was because he was in a wheelchair.
Personally, I thought he would have made a great Shatterstar--decent build, right hair color and style--but, it seemed his 'friends' won out and made him agree.
Witnessing this made me wonder...is it right to force someone to portray a character in cosplay simply because they don't "fit the mold" of other characters? 
Like...telling someone who is in a wheelchair that they can only portray characters who're in a wheelchair? 
Or telling someone with darker skin that they can't cosplay as someone with a lighter skin tone than them? 
Or telling someone who's overweight that they can't portray a slimmer or athletically-built character?
Personally, I don't think it's fair--it seems plain wrong. Thoughts?"
When he first posted this, I agreed that people should be allowed to cosplay who they want because, hey...no big deal, right? The responses posts on the forum were quite positive--people sharing their own stories and support...

A heartwarming story about an older woman in a mobility chair cosplaying as Totoro...female cosplayers wanting to crossplay-cosplay as male characters who they had more of an identity with...

But then someone responded to him in a PM talking about how they didn't want to see some "five hundred pound broad trying to be Sailormoon" or "some overweight weirdo pretending he's a pony".

(For the record, both me and Dante think that no one should have the right to tell someone what to like and what not to like; he's actually good friends with a couple of bronies and took a serious offense on their behalf to the messenger's comments.)

For me, I remembered a time I was at my first con when I saw some guys giving a Hiei cosplayer a hard time...because he was a tall African-American man; his response? He told them off...and got back-up from a Caucasian guy dressed up a Chang Wufei--for the record, it was an awesome team-up.

My second con, a Hispanic girl was getting harassed by a group of girls because she was cosplaying as Lady Kayura..while apparently being overweight by those girls' standards. Her response was to push one of the girls into the pool at the hotel and call her out on dressing as a Sailor Scout when she was more of a villain.

Ofcourse, not all things end so well--that same con, I saw a younger girl run through the hotel lobby to the elevators, in tears because another cosplayer told her she had no business trying to cosplay as Gene Starwind because she was female, short, and Asian. A former friend of mine who still goes to cons said that she hadn't seen that cosplayer back ever since.

So...I suppose I want to ask everyone here on dA, especially any cosplayers out there, what's your opinion on this subject?
