Hi! I'm sorry if I bother you... I just wonder: Do you know why captleto is gone? I'm very shock!! Was her decision or somebody else forced her to go? I saw a couple days ago that she posted some complete shows of 30stm, that could be the problem?

No idea. None. I checked it out Friday night and it seemed alive. Returned Saturday afternoon and shit was shut down.

Whether it was self-inflicted is another story.

Tumblr does not fuck around and they have the access to delete whatever posts someone may file against you. 3 warnings from them and they will deactivate your blog.

Captleto recently said they deleted a whole bunch of posts…

Was it by choice - or were the posts deleted without their approval?

A post from a week or so ago they were claiming they weren’t going anywhere.
So….I’m thinking this deactivation was not intentional.

There were many anon warnings going out to Captleto advising that they lie-low and hold off on trying to break news - as so much attention was already on them at that point - and not the good attention. Once you realize not only is Dai (and therefore Jared’s closecrew) aware of you but then also reaching out to you for info on shit – you know you’re treading on thin ice…

Here’s my honest feelings on Captleto (because now I’m getting shit for my post about their blog being shut down (which, please)):

Always a lovely source of all-things Jared, Mars, etc.

Never had an issue ever with Captleto - in fact, as I said, they were one of the first blogs to actually pay attention to me - and bless them for that.

I agree with much of what they had to say on things. Howevs….

It was apparent, like much of what happens in any fandom, when fanboys and girls realize you’ve got the goods and suddenly so much attention  is focused on you and what you know on a certain subject, a person can respond in 1 of 3 ways: 

 - retreat

 - business as usual, ie the blog stays stable, posts are consistent with what they were a year ago

  - you buy into your sudden fandom-fame and posts begin to turn toward more salacious stories and rumors and gossip to keep the demand going and the gossip-hungry fandom happy.

It seems like at the start of LoveLust, whether thru an inside source or just really eager tipsters, Captleto’s tone began to change. dramatically.

It became less about enjoying Jared, Mars, their projects, and more about being the breaking source for gossip, rumors, side-eye-worthy pics.

Maybe it wasn’t even spurred by Captleto but by the anons that were suddenly flooding Captleto’s inbox, fanning the flames of Jared’s personal life and rumors going around the interwebs. but here’s the thing - you, as the tumblrer have every right to disregard an anon question if you feel it’s not where you wanna take your blog. or you can answer it privately, if you feel the need to respond. 

I personally began to have a love/dislike relationship with the blog.
The tone suddenly felt - I dunno - toxic in a way that was upsetting me. While there was a voyeuristic aspect that is liable to excite anyone interested in Jared or the band or their private lives, it also felt deliberately cruel in some ways. Like seeing police and ambulance lights on a stretch of road, inching toward and routed around around a violent car wreck; I felt at times it was documenting the implosion of a band and kind of too, a man. Things that were probably not at all dramatic were suddenly magnified and the sense around everything was one of almost out of control impending doom. Even when it was like a pic of Jared backstage. The anon implications that were being posted were just fueling a sense of animosity that i really can’t deal with.

I think ultimately, Captleto was playing a very dangerous game, and despite warnings from readers over postings or most-recently warnings against posting the full-concert videos (which, those were available on Youtube - so, really, while not the best things to be posting after unabashedly posting basically every spoiler/scandal surrounding Jared over the last few months, shouldn’t be held against Captleto. I almost feel the MARS crew should thank Captleto for featuring them so they could go after the source on Youtube - they were going to be seen and shared whether or not Captleto did it) they continued to forge ahead because it was undoubtedly exciting to be the blog people were turning to first and it is SO easy to get caught up in the fervor of fandoms. But that same intensity and passion and need to be the tumblr everyone is reblogging/faving can end up being the reason for a downfall too.

I do ultimately feel they’ll bounceback - under a new name - but they’ve lost a lot (hundreds of postings, thousands of subscribers) in going in that direction. I wonder if when they do come back, if things will read the same…

There’s a fine line between giving people what they want and having to tell  people what they want is sometimes too much.

started getting back into the first persona game (it’s been like a week since i last played it, maybe more), got about an hour into it, remembered why i was so disinclined to play it that i started a third playthrough of persona q instead

random combat is way too frequent, contacting demons is labyrinthine at best, the music ain’t that great, fast travel is nonexistent, and it’s just boring. maki’s sort of interesting and nanjo’s okay and i miss yukino but the story is just. blahhhh. combined with sub-par music and annoying, repetitive combat, this is one of the least entertaining video games i have ever played. maybe it gets better later? hopefully?

persona 2 seems much more interesting and honestly i would just skip to that one if it didn’t seem to be more of a direct sequel than 3 and 4 are. how did this game become popular enough to spawn sequels? was it someone’s pet project? does it get better later?

anyway i’m going back to q for now, which is fun and colorful and has a great soundtrack and basically is just better than its original predecessor in every way

no i’m not bitter about dying in the middle of a dungeon when i hadn’t saved for a while why do you ask

Hail Mary, full of grace! Blessed art thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death, amen.

Slouch

One-word prompt submitted by nerdygrlwonder: Rain.

“It’s raining again.” Abbie leaned her forehead against the too-warm window. Spitting tongues of flame flickered from the sky and singed the grass. Curls of smoke caught on the breeze.

And they were trapped in here, helpless, just waiting for the next part of a prophecy and the next slouch toward Bethlehem. Abbie beat her fist against the glass once; it thumped dully.

Crane’s hands settled about her waist. She leaned back against him, suddenly exhausted. “This is not the end, you know. It can’t be.”

“How can you sound so fucking sure? The sky is literally falling.”

He pressed his lips against the nape of her neck. “I shall not fear, Grace Abigail, for thou art with me.”

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
—  [Psalms 23]

I was listening to music from the Tales games today. And just the thought of Sina casting Indignation just felt right. If there was ever a Tales of Souls AU, she probably learns the spell from Agdayne, and masters it with Straid’s help.

Just imagined Sina and Demon of Song having the exchange from Phantasia:

Sina: “I stand in the place bathed in heavenly light Thou art where the gate to the Underworld opens. Come forth, divine lightning!”
Demon of Song: “What? That is…?”
Sina: “This is the end! Indignation!”
Demon of Song: “This… This can’t be!” 

Then I imagined who Sina’s party, in this AU, would be and gave some artes to them. It also includes a little bit of what I see their roles being like in the game.

California vs New Jersey: Where art thou, Hotpants?

Okay, only cause I was thinking about this post and! in fact! I’ve been thinking about Dad Pines and Carla a bit. What kind of relationship did they have, you know? I’m very concerned. ;__;

There’s two scenarios, mostly that were covered in the linked post above.

1. Carla and Thistle left Jersey and hit up California, specifically San Fran, as per the hippie lifestyle. Dad Pines grew up in Cali.
2. Carla and Thistle stayed in Jersey. Dad grew up in Jersey, and moved out to Cali.
