6 Years of Dan

@danisnotonfire posted his first video six years ago today and since then he’s met his best friend, created his own unique video series such as ‘reasons why dan’s a fail’ and ‘internet support group,’ been on and now has a show on BBC radio 1, made many great collaborations with other YouTubers, created a gaming channel, written an incredible book, gone on tour, and effected the lives of over 5 million people. Dan has done a lot in these six years and I personally am glad I got to watch it all happen. He’s inspired many people and managed to make them laugh. He’s creative, intelligent, well articulated, kind, and has a unique ‘relatable’ sense of humour. I’m so glad that he chose to share his life with us and would like to say thank you. 

Thank you, Dan, for posting that iconic video that makes you cringe so much. If not for you posting that video and continuing to make the great content you do, then many of us would not be the people we are today. In the book you said that you felt that you and Phil were writing it to thank us for being there so you could share your lives and ideas with us, but really we should be thanking you for allowing us to get to know you and for making us smile.

“Oh my god, (Y/N)! You didn’t have to do this. This is great! This is why I love you.”

It’s time for the FoulkLore Show!

With your host, Audrey Wytch!

Hello, ladies, gents, and non-binary pals! Welcome to the FoulkLore Show! Where I come in a discussion or issue or something in a fandom that is being beat down upon, when in fact, it’s related to the original lore!

We have been getting calls from ALL over the place about a certain issue within the Overwatch fandom! What’s this issue, you may ask? It’s about a skin that came up for the Halloween event.

Let’s give it a look!

Hrm… Symmetra’s skin becomes a very pale shade of gray, and her eyes lose color. I can see how this skin can cause some controversy. Compared to her normal skin, which we see here:

Now, it can be seen as white-washing or racist that the Overwatch devs, Blizzard, decided to make her white for her vampire skin.

But then we have lore.

See, Symmetra comes from India, a land where Hinduism is their main religion. What’s interesting about this is that if you look into the lore of vampires, this skin actually fits into Hindu lore and myths perfectly. Let’s access the facts, shall we?

Kali, the Vampire Goddess (yes, you heard me correctly). She’s most known for her belt of severed heads, mainly from her enemies. What does she look like?

She’s white? What a shock, what a revelation! A Hindu goddess, born of another goddess, Durga! Durga was the mother of the universe, she helped make it, if not all on her own. “But wait!”, I heard you cry, “Durga must be of colored skin!”

Durga is there in the center, and what is that? She’s yellow. And what is that depicted on her left (our right)? A white person, who is standing in a calm pose, and right next to the Mother of the Universe? And I can hear you say, “But only two!”

And I tell you that no, there is another god who is not colored! And who is that, you may ask? The one, the only, Shiva!

What was this god’s role? He was the destroyer, he was the end. The absolute end. There was no coming back from this. And yet, he’s depicted as white. But why?

The color white is sacred. Gods and Goddesses in Hinduism are depicted as white because it’s sacred, and white means “purity, cleanliness, peace, and knowledge.” (Source: http://www.sanskritimagazine.com/indian-religions/hinduism/meaning-of-different-colours-in-hinduism/ )

White in ancient cultures also meant wealth, prosperity, royalty, because you could stay inside and not work the fields, which would give everyone else a tan.

So, does this fit in with Symmetra’s Vampire skin? Within lore, yes, yes it does! It’s not white washing!

So, that is the end of this episode of the FoulkLore Show! We hope we never have to do this again, but if so, we’ll see you in the next episode!

book otps: sydney and adrian, bloodlines

“love is …” an old memory with adrian came back to me, and some of the turbulent emotion i always carried within me these days welled up in my chest. it was stupid, feeling so lovesick when he’d been gone less than a day, but i couldn’t get him or the ways he described love out of my head. “… a flame in the dark. a breath of warmth on a winter’s night. a star that guides you home.”
