Time for a rant:
First off let me say I’m a clexa shipper, so I went through the same thing you guys did when Lexa died. But what I’m about to rant about is more serious than any fictional ship.
Okay, for all of you people who’re not watching The 100 anymore because you’re upset, that’s fine! It’s completely okay to stop watching a show you no longer like. But to you shits who’re actively trying to get The 100 cancelled and boycotting it, stop. Seriously, you guys may think that you’re doing the right thing and trying to stop queer bating but you’re destroying tons of innocent people’s livelihood. You’re trying to cancel a show that’s queer bated, which it bad, but that was a decision that was made by a few. You’re taking away the jobs of tons of people for instance, Eliza Taylor, Lindsey Morgan, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos, Devon Bostick, Henry Ian Custick, Richard Harmon, Paige Turco, Chris Larkin, Isaiah Washington, Zach McGowan, cinematographer, floor manager, graphics coordinator, stage manager, makeup artists, production manager, technical directors, stunt coordinators, video control operator, composer, colorist, editors, foley artist, costume designer, location manager, production and set designer, etc. Should I go on? And I know what you guys are saying, that they’ll be better off working on something that’s not the show, but not if the show gets cancelled! They’re way less likely to get hired (maybe even ever again) if the show gets cancelled, it looks bad for them. Name one successful actor from a failed tv show. Hmmm, don’t really know anyone do you? And then think about some minor workers on the set who might not even get a job ever again if The 100 gets cancelled. All because you guys had to have a fit and demand the show gets cancelled, stop being a baby and realize that people have jobs and aren’t as privileged to have everything handed to them, they work, and you’re taking away the work from them. It’s as simple as that. Yes, I get you’re upset about Lexa but please look at the bigger picture. So next time I hear someone trying to boycott The 100, you better be ready for me setting a fire in your ass.
“I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity and her flaming self-respect and it’s these things I’d believe in even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn’t all that she should be. But of course the real reason is that I love her and that’s the beginning and end of everything.”— F. Scott Fitzgerald
I never actually intended to post this. I think you can probably tell it’s an older sketch, especially if you compare it to the Pinkie Pie I posted a couple days ago. I suddenly needed a filly Celestia to complement a filly Luna for my buttons though so I fished it out of my old files and quickly colored it. I also haven’t posted an ask in a while so that’s a double whammy right there, enough for me to stomach posting a weak sketch haha
Anyways I’m sure some of you will like this one more than I do so I suppose it’s worth the post.
OMG Bob and the other guy are died 50 50 for the Alpha Male contest currently!!! vote everybody!
Listen you people, you lovely bob stans. We’re depending on you.
Let me tell you a little bit about the older demographic that is The Sam Stans.
I’m old, okay? Much older than the rest of The 100 fandom. Older folks? We have flaws. We’re tired. It gets to be too much for us. We’ve got kids and jobs and early bedtimes. And things like carpal tunnel syndrome and our nightly booze habit.
We do not have the stamina of the lovely, young The 100 fanbase. Now I’m a super big Bob Morley and The 100 fan, but we also know I’m one of the oldest in the fandom. And I am working my ass off trying to vote. I HATE POLLS. So I’m not a power voter. I don’t have the time or energy. I’ve got kids bugging me and work to do (shit I’m supposed to be working now!)
This is how we win.
Use your young passion and stamina and do NOT give up. Be relentless. Drink those redbully energy drinks you kids like nowadays. We catch up overnight while the Sam stans are getting their beauty sleep and preparing for their work day. But when they wake up, they fight back. They’re passionate. But they’re also busy and tired and distracted!!!
Especially on that last day. The voting does NOT end overnight where we get our edge, so we’ll have to be FIERCE AND RELENTLESS LIKE MILENNIALS!!! YOU CANNOT BE STOPPED, KIDS! VOTE VOTE VOTE SOME MORE.
If I’m this tired and still voting hundreds of times a day, y’all can definitely do better than me. I’m losing it. They’re old like me. Maybe they’ll lose it, too. You are young and vigorous and you love Bob.
Sam stans have won before but they have never had Bob Morley fans to deal with. Listen, we’ve been dealing with the antis all this time. Actual real fans? Just as obsessed as we are. We can do it.
