indie aka my white twin: happy 19th birthday! i made this because you always make me smile, and you always make me laugh. i wish that i could physically hug you, but i guess i’ll have to settle for hugging you in spirit. you’re one of my favorite people ever. i consider myself lucky to call you my friend! i love you soooo much bean! xoxo, julie ♡ ♡ ♡
1x18 - Yeah. Good. Because the last thing I want is for things to change. That smile that tugs his lips. The longing in his eyes: reaching out towards Jemma, pulling him closer to her. It’s him and Jemma. And Jemma says it out loud, rather than him—those feelings he’s been confused about ever since Jemma started spending time with Tripp. And he’s awestruck. Because all he wants is it to be him and Jemma. (x)
Benedict Cumberbatch, my favorite actor ever, and one of my favorite
people in the world, turned 40 years old. Since midnight in UK (8pm BR
time) both my feeds at Twitter and Tumblr were filled with loving
birthday messages from pretty much everyone around the world, awesome
pieces of fan art, memories of Ben’s best moments, photos, gifsets, etc.
We even tried to make the #happybirthdaybenedict hashtag trend on
Twitter. All of that for a man who isn’t on social media and would
probably not see it.
Batch of Kindness. It was so cool to see all kinds of acts, from money,
clothes, food or blood donations to simple, small gestures to help
somebody or to brighten their day. I did my part as well, for the first
time, and it felt good. And it was all Benedict’s idea, who was grateful
to recieve gifts from his fans, but thought it was better for us to
help those who are less fortunate than him (or than ourselves, for that
then there was Cumberbatchweb’s annual campaign. Benedict had selected
three refugees charities to which the fandom could donate in honor of
his birthday. (I must say I’m still gutted I couldn’t donate, which I
wanted to do since last year, because my credit card was rejected for
some reason, and PayPal.me isn’t in Brazil yet, but that’s not the
point.) Things were doing really great, when an anonymous kind soul
donated £ 11,000 to the campaign and until this moment it has collected
over £ 22,000. How amazing is that? Each charity will recieve a little
over £ 7,000 from the fandom.
about the birthday boy himself? Benedict finished filming at 4:30am,
but he had a room decorated for him, cupcakes and fireworks at night.
And that’s only what we got to know, and I can only imagine the amount
of love he recieved from his friends, co-workers, from his family.
safe to say Benedict had a lovely day. But, then again, so did I. Never
have I had so much fun on somebody else’s birthday, not even on my
own birthdat. Yesterday was a normal day at work, but everytime I checked my
Twitter I saw people sharing all their love for Benedict, and that was
amazing! I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this before.
Of course every fandom, wonderful as it may be, has its dark corners, and it was so unsurprising to see they were so bitter about the birthday of the man the claim to support… As
you may know, Leslie Jones, Patty Tolan from the new Ghostbusters
(amazing movie BTW, go watch it!) has left Twitter because of the amount
of hate and offence she was getting lately, and she posted a series of
tweets to illustrate her feelings, including this one:
“You have to hate yourself to put out that type of hate. I mean on my worst day I can’t think of this type of hate to put out.”
That’s just it. How much does one have to hate themselves to say such horrible things? On Benedict’s birthday, the nicest guy to talk in this world, who did nothing to deserve that, but lead his life as he see fit? The could have done an act of kindness, made someone smile, Benedict’s fans did yesterday. And look how they wasted their time…
What I mean is, yesterday was a special day to me because it made me realized not only how loved and cherished Benedict Cumberbatch is, but
what an amazing and loving fanbase he has. I hope he knows it, but I
suspect he does already. I do know now, and I feel proud and happy to be part of this.
I’d like to finish this long post by saying, I love Benedict Cumberbatch. E now, more than ever, I love the Cumbercollective. Thank you for the lovely July 19th you all gave me.
Listen here mate u have to stop adding pics and gifs of clexa to sappy text posts and quotes OK this fandom is rude enough as it is without u toying with my emotions gdi
Listen mate, clexakru is literally the rudest fandom in the history of life, with our fics and fanfics and headcanons, we’re the worst. I am a part of clexakru therefore I partake and participate in the rudeness. My favorite pass time is leaving clexa pics/gifsets on super said text posts and I don’t think I’ve can ever give it up. #sorrynotsorry
Jemizzy. They’re from You Me Her, and I love love love this trio. They’re a canon poly ship and that makes me so, so happy.
Westhallen. It was actually my favorite poly ship until Jemizzy came along. I fell into this ship with an AU gifset and I’ve been gone for them ever since.
Liv/Major/Ravi. Another huge OT3; these three would work really well with one another, and I ship mostly all of them together separately as well.
AtomicHawkmates. It’s odd because while I think Hawkmates and AtomicHawk are both cute, I don’t have strong feelings for either. But put it into a poly ship??? I’m Here For It.
Flashvibewest. I still don’t ship Cisco/Iris that much, but I think they work well with each other and I love Westallen and Flashvibe, and I think these three as a trio would be a healthy, loving ship (plus both Cisco and Iris got to bring Barry home when will your OT3 ever?????).
