I can’t believe I reached 1000 followers, thank you so much ;_____;
I’m still looking for a way to thank you all, I’m always open for suggestions because i suck at this kind of things, but I MUST DO SOMETHING.

Your support really means a lot to me, before my Kuvira cosplay I had very few followers and I used to be very quiet here on Tumblr.. but you changed everything, you helped me a lot to improve my english and now I always have a “shoulder to cry on” when I’m sad.. I couldn’t be more thankful for each one of you ;_____;

PS: I’m always very busy and sometimes I’m super late with replies.. Don’t you ever think I’m ignoring you, I’m not and I never will… It just became a little bit harder, please be patient because I really appreciate every single message I get :’)


OKAY GUYS I NEED HELP

Hey everyone. I’m in a bit of a situation and I need your help, as little as you can give, it would be enormously appreciated. I’m currently living with my boyfriend of 7 years in his parents’ house. They have decided over night to sell it, they already have some buyers lined up and we will be out of a home, possibly very soon. Renting a place is very expensive here, so much that it’s a lot easier to afford a bank loan and buy our own house, than to afford a rent+utilities. I can afford the paying the actual loan and the monthly installments, what I can’t afford are the expenses prior to receiving it. These expenses mean 5% advance payment of the total value of the house I want to buy, and a lot of notary expenses that add up + bank fees, which amounts to about 3800$ (USD). My parents have refused to help me. They simply won’t, claiming that they can’t afford it (which is not true).
I have thought long and hard about asking you guys for help, because I’m embarrassed and I hate doing this, when you guys come here for the books, not the family drama. But I have started an indiegogo life fundraiser. If you can help, even with 1 or 2$, it would help tons. If you cannot, it’s okay, I appreciate the messages of support just as much <3 I’m really scared right now and I am just…out of options.
Thank you for reading this and thank you for all your kind messages and words. You guys are awesome.

Friendly reminders

Many of you come to certain blogs for reassurance and to make you feel better every time something happens, we will do it gladly but sometimes it gets exhausting and we don’t have magic words that will make everything better - so I want to share some advices that might help you go through this on your own.

  • Big picture: Every time something that according to you might be labelled as “bad” happens, try to take a step back and look at the whole picture. Does it fit there? Does it change anything? Does it realistically affect it somehow? Do you think it’s enough to change the whole dynamic? Do you think it’s enough to stop the whole process? The big picture is the key, when you guys ask me about small details and how they affect the situation that’s how I get my answers: looking at the big picture, it show us an approximation of the reality going on behind the scenes (at least in a more accurate way than the small and random details).
  • Expectations: Careful with that, it’s your worst enemy in this fandom. When we talk about changes we don’t mean that things are going to be perfect and beautiful overnight, that is never going to happen. First of all, things will never be perfect and beautiful (new team or not) and you guys need to start accepting that. This is a music band and they’re going to push them and portray them in certain ways to make money, simple as that. It won’t be like the stuff Modest is doing, obviously, there are so many levels of shadiness and sketchiness between Modest and a good management but it’s always going to be there. They can treat them better, they can project a good image, they can listen to them and respect them, they can use better promo strategies, they can treat the fans much better, they can let their musical potential shine BUT there are other details that will never go away because this is the show business and that’s how things work. So my advice is to set a high bar because we sure deserve good stuff and they are perfectly capable of doing it but not too high that becomes unrealistic and will make you feel disappointed when inevitably it doesn’t reach your expectations.
  • Fear: When you start panicking try to calm yourself thinking clearly, I know it’s difficult as hell but is whatever that happened really worth all that stress? Because it’s so much stress, some of you worry about so much stuff all the time, it has to be exhausting. There are things that will get a strong emotional reaction out of you (the b.s. tweets, Zayn’s departure…) and honestly it’s understandable but there are other things that will make you suffer for no reason at all, just your own Pavlovian reaction and the general environment of fear.
  • Patterns: They are so important, they are extremely useful to read the situation and they can tell you so many things about the future. Careful with what do you consider a pattern, though. Forget about most of the previous patterns in this fandom, they don’t fit anymore so stop looking for stuff that will fit in your mental structure because things don’t work the same way they used to. Stop labelling random cases patterns too, an isolated thing doesn’t make a pattern - we go back to the big picture, look for similar cases in the big picture before deciding if something is a pattern or not.
  • Trust: I know it’s difficult to trust anybody in this fandom after everything we’ve been through but trust the boys and, specially, trust Harry and Louis (because I’m a Larrie and Larries will read this). Give them some credit, give their relationship some credit, it’s true that they could break up any time because they’re human like the rest of us and they wouldn’t be the first nor the last but they seem to have a very strong relationship - stop believing small things will be enough to break them apart. I know some of you have unrealistic expectations about love and how relationship works because you have never been in a relationship yourself or because you think their relationship is different. It’s not, it’s true that it’s a special case and the word soulmate dances around in your head when you think about them but they still work like any other relationship in the world: they work together, they spend 24/7 together for great part of the year - it’s okay if they spend a few weeks apart from each other, I can assure you that is not a reason to break up. Trust them to do whatever it’s best for them, trust them to know what they can and can’t do, trust them do decide what to do and where to go in their free time and trust them to decide how their relationship works. They’ve gotten a trillion tattoos, I’m pretty sure a bit of distance can’t break that.
  • Keep calm and wait: We can speculate, we can discuss patterns, we can try to predict stuff but in the end the only thing that can really show us how everything is going to end is time. I know it’s easier said than done but I’ve found it’s the best way to face this whole situation. In the end, none of us really knows what’s going on or the kind of things that would change everything, nobody knows what’s the real plan and how it’s laid out but worrying about the future based on our own analysis and speculations is a mistake. We don’t know if OT4 is going to stay together for a long time and smash it, we don’t know if Harry and Louis are going to make it and come out any time soon, we don’t know if we’re really getting a new management team but we will find out sooner or later - we just have to wait.

That’s it, I think using rational thinking is the only way to stay calm in this fandom. I know it’s difficult to do and that you will fall off the wagon every now and then but I truly believe it’s the only way you won’t lose it completely. These are the usual reasons behind my scared anons, I only want some of you to think about this a bit because the amount of suffering you go through on daily basis isn’t healthy - I honestly worry about you.

this is one is for you guys, squad ❤️

this probably will be the only post I make that has some form of intelligence and helpful meaning within the rp community. I’m nothing special, an average rper who’s more in love with their opt than life. I see the community is SUFFERING, I see the anger and rage in people based on events that keep occurring but most of all I see peoples lack of desire to log back on. I can say from experience of nearly nine years that you NEVER see it all & I keep seeing events that hurt others on a monthly basis.

The only advice I can give you is to REMEMBER how many of us are roleplayers, to remember that you’re not alone when you’re feeling down
, to remember that all together we’re a huge fandom ourselves, we’re all here for the same thing. All of us have potential as writers and to make friends that can last forever. PLEASE do not let negativity, competition or jealousy run your rping life. I can admit that i’ve felt all of those and it was a waste of time. Your time on roleplay is always limited because of life and you should make it worth while. We need to have each others back because no one else will. If you see someone in harms way try to contact them, remind people about how beautiful they’re as a writer and a individual. Support your fandom, support everyone because at the end of the day on this website….we’re all that we have. Just take a moment to contact your rp partners and remind them how you appreciate them. You’re a l w a y s loved, your characters are wonderful and if you’re ever in need, there will be a small army of us or at least someone. say everything you want about how roleplay is lame but remember that we’re ALWAYS here to save the day and that’s the beauty of roleplay.
