adventures in fandoms i don't know

Dear angry fandoms,

I don’t understand why everybody feels the need to torment and harass shippers, creators, and people who just want to enjoy the show because they dissatisfied with some aspect. Creators make shows for everyone not just for you. You should respect and praise creators who take so many hours out of their days to provide us with beautiful content instead of nitpicking and writing angry comments while hiding behind the internet. These people just wanted to make something that people could enjoy. Not so that your OTP can get together.

Mary Watson as a character absolutely ruined BBC Sherlock. I hope one day you may read the books of ACD and truly appreciate the characters of Holmes and Watson. I have no intention of being rude, but am just baffled how anyone can so misinterpret two of literatures most loved characters.

{{Mary Watson as a character absolutely ruined BBC Sherlock.}}

Such a shame that you think that a great and interesting woman character ruined your interpretation of Sherlock. Even with yer preconceived notion that Sherlock and Watson were gay and in love, I think you could have still enjoyed MG and SM version of Mary Watson. Mary brought love into John’s life and made him happy when he was sadly mourning Sherlock’s death. She gave him a beautiful daughter and most importantly, she became best friends with Sherlock too.

That is the most important part because up until then, Sherlock was the only close and trusted friend that John had (yes Stamford was his friend too but not on the scale of what Sherlock became to John) Mary liked Sherlock instantly and Sherlock liked Mary instantly as well. 

Sherlock knew that Mary was not perfect and that when he read her that she was a liar and keeping secrets but Sherlock had just come off 2 years of lying to his best friend and was still keeping secrets so who was Sherlock to judge when he himself was far from innocent. Sherlock could see that Mary made John happy and Sherlock knew that John needed and deserved to be happy, especially after faking his death and coming back to life.

For John to have Mary in his life at that time was the best possible thing that kept the Holmes and Watson friendship going, she saved that friendship because she knew how much they needed each other, she knew how important that friendship was to each of those men. The addition of Mary Morstan to the Holmes and Watson orbit was not about dividing these best friends, it was about enhancing it, about helping it grow to the next level, which was the brotherly bond that Sherlock and John had.

It was Mary who saved that friendship not once, but twice.

It’s all fine and good you think Sherlock and John were in love, I wouldn’t tell you that yer wrong. If that is yer interpretation of these two characters then, awesome. BUT that shouldn’t cloud yer judgement and enjoyment of the character of Mary Watson because even in the ACD canon stories Sherlock liked Mary. And in BBC Sherlock, Sherlock Holmes loved and protected Mary Morstan Watson. She was his 2nd best friend and they had a bond that was totally real because they both understood each other.

They were very much flawed but they wanted to be better people and they became better people because they had one common denominator, and that was their love for John Watson. And both of them lied and did things to protect John from their truths. They didn’t judge each other and they didn’t have impossible expectations of what a friendship was supposed to be. Sherlock and Mary did the best they could. That is why their friendship worked perfectly.

{{I hope one day you may read the books of ACD and truly appreciate the characters of Holmes and Watson.}}

Honestly I probably won’t ever read the books. My husband who is a huge fanboy of Sherlock Holmes on the scale of the Mofftiss, tried to get me into Sherlock LONG ago but failed. I only became interested in watching Sherlock when I fell in love with Benedict and then fell in love with the BBC version of Sherlock. The writing, the setting of London, the actors that use their talents to bring these wonderful characters to life. The BBC version of Sherlock is the only version I’d ever be into. Fingers cross we will get S5 because S4 was AH-mazing! and I loved every minute of it and I’d love to see them expand on Eurus and explore more of the Holmes Family narrative. I’d love to see John and Rosie interact more, I’d love to see Irene Adler make a surprise appearance and cause some playful trouble for Sherlock AND I want to see how the Molly and Sherlock dynamic continues, now that we know they both love each other. I’d like to see where that love takes them..

{{I have no intention of being rude,but am just baffled how anyone can so misinterpret two of literature’s most loved characters.}}

Anon, no rudeness taken! But I believe you are confusing interpretation with truth. The version of Holmes and Watson, YOUR interpretation is that you believe they are and have always been in love. That they are gay and that is the way ACD wrote them to be, gay on the down low because back then homosexuality was not acceptable. Well, the truth is, ACD modeled these 2 men after people he knew in his real life. And gave them personality traits of the people he knew in that life. We don’t know what the truth was about them. All ACD gave us was the stories of 2 men and their ridiculous adventures and it’s up to the reader on how they want to view this 100+ year old relationship between the world’s only consulting detective and a doctor who became his trusted confidant and documenter of their adventures together.

Thanks for stopping by!

y’all, what do you do when you and your gods haven’t talked for months?

i feel like a teenager who left home without telling my parents who love me very much and is ready to come home but unsure of how they’re going to react or what to talk about or say.

For Asexual Awareness Week 2017 (and for Asexual Awareness Week Fandom Challenge 2017) I decided to make a graphic masterpost of characters I headcanon in the asexual spectrum. These aren’t my only ace headcanons, but they’re some of the most important ones, since I couldn’t fit all of them in a single graphic.

Click on the pictures to show the name of the characters and the series/videogame/whatever they come from.

Look, I know I’m possibly tooting my own horn here, but I just need people to know how much a comment like this means. I am floored. I am humbled. I am giddy. And I am motivated. I have lost my writing mojo for a while now, but comments like this lift me up like nothing else. 

*cries tears of gratitude and determination*

Bless you, fandom. This is the kind of stuff that makes all the hard work worthwhile.

So… Splatoon 2nd Anniversary is right here.

I did’t get the game on Day 1 because I thought it wasn’t for me. I mean, shooter game? Online multiplayer? Nothing of that interested me that much back then. But the visuals and style of the game were amazing, so I quickly got interested anyway. Also, some friends I trust told me the game was lots of fun and easy to learn. That was one part of the reason why I bought the game.

But some other very relevant things that influenced me into getting the game were some very early arts of a very cute inkling couple created by @tamarinfrog​ / @cafe-cardamari​ . Everyone knows I like romance and fluff a lot, so I enjoyed very much the idea that squids could be shippable, haha!

If Clementine and Whinter are to blame for me getting into this new game and fandom that brings me joys and challenges every day, I thought it was only fair for me to draw those two today.

Those two characters never stopped evolving since they were created, and one day, by the will of their creator, they will live new adventures outside Splatoon. And I will love them regardless of the universe.

… and now, if you excuse me, I’m going to sleep because, well, it’s almost 6 AM… oops.

Tumblr: omg TAZ is so good!
me: oh shit! I better get caught up with that so that I know what everyone’s talking about!

me: no… OH SHIT gonna watch it rn and get the jump on everyone so that I’ll know what everyone’s talking when the fandom gets big!
*literally a day later*
me: hey guys I’m back, how about them good good furries, huh?
Tumblr: actually, we’re into football satellites now :///
me: ????¿¿¿???¿

anonymous asked:

so i kinda want to get into this fandom (the anti thing keeps catching my eye) but like. i don't know where to start. do you have any tips?

(The only way down this rabbit hole of theories and hype with Anti is diving headfirst).

Me? Tips/ recommendations of where to start with the Jacksepticeye fandom??

Oh boy. I could offer my personal favorite game series Jack has done:

Outlast and Outlast 2 (horror)

Undertale and  Night in The Woods (excellent adventure, and slight mystery with MANY great characters/ voices in both)

The Last Guardian  (beautiful to look at game)

Happy Wheels (comedy)


To learn more about Jack himself, I highly recommend his livestreams, vlogs, and reading your comments series- all are awesome. :)

Erm… Guys help me out here- what would you recommend? First video suggestions? Character/ ego introductions? Your favorites?

  • Me: *sees announcement about the animated Supernatural/Scooby-Doo crossover episode next season*
  • Me: Oh, I don't know about that.
  • My brain: Doesn't that seem like the kind of thing Gabe would do to them though?
  • Me: ...
  • Me: OH MY CHUCK, THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER! THEY'RE TOTALLY GOING TO BRING HIM BACK, 2000% CONFIRMED!!!11

Some fic for Barry J. Bluejeans because I don’t see enough of my soft chubby boy in the fandom. Although this is… a bit weird, both in style and in content. We know almost nothing about this boy’s backstory so I… went exploring. In a style I don’t think I’ve ever used before. So with that disclaimer, please enjoy.

Content Warning for implied sexual content

Spoilers for the Balance arc (although frankly it probably wouldn’t spoil you so much as you’d just have no idea what’s happening lol)


This is how the story goes: your name is Sildar Hallwinter. You’re five years old and technically head of one of the last remaining noble estates in the country, following your father’s death. You’ve already forgotten his face. In a couple more years, he’ll be nothing but the story of a stranger you never knew. Your grandmother is running the estate until you’re old enough to do it.

You like to watch the birds in the garden on a cool summer morning. You’ve learned how to sit very, very still so you don’t scare them away. You watch them pecking at the berries in the bushes and gulping them down. One morning, you pick a bunch of berries and spread them out on the ground in front of you. The birds hop and waddle their way over until they’re eating the berries withing arms’ reach, casting you the occasional inquisitive look. As the days go by, they get closer and closer, until you’ve taught them to eat out of your hand.

— — —

This is how the story goes: you wake up gasping, naked and submerged in some kind of tank, choking on something that fills your mouth, your eyes, ears, and nose. The pod splits open and spills you onto the floor and you gasp for air, coughing and spitting. There’s green, brackish fluid everywhere, it’s sticky and disgusting, and you’re bewildered and afraid. You’re in some kind of cave, but you don’t know how you got here, you don’t even know where “here” is. Those are your clothes slung over a trunk in the corner of the room, but on the chair next to them is an unfamiliar red robe with a patch that you can’t quite focus on. You stumble to your feet and reach for your shirt and jeans, trying to piece together where you are and why. For some reason, though, all of your memories are distant and hazy, like they happened a long, long time ago.

I’m just going to say that it’s chasing him because he’s probably done what 90% of the Pokémon fandom has done before and called that Klink ugly.

I know that he hasn’t called a Pokémon ugly since the whole true beauty thing with Mimi… but really, Klink should be an exception.

anonymous asked:

If it makes you write again, it's good that Beauty made you angry. But how could it make you angry if you haven't even seen it?

Recaps are a thing. I know what happened (I stopped watching ouat completely since/with Beauty and it was WAY easier than I expected… like, zero symptoms of withdrawal; I haven’t read any recaps since then). Knowing what happened is enough to make me angry. I will not be argued out of my anger, and I will not defend my anger.

Honestly, Emilie and Bobby could probably make me swallow cockroaches alive, so I don’t doubt they could make me swallow this plot for a while, but I don’t want to. I will not give A&E the benefit of the doubt. I will not accept that Belle is the only character of the old cast who explicitely had to die for plot reasons (and dying to show Rumple the path to mortality or whatever is a plot reason and nothing else, and it’s weak as fuck), while they pull a ho0k clone out their a** to keep him on the show (good for his fans though, I’m happy for them), and Emma gets her undefined HE with Hook and Baby.

No, Belle growing old and dying in isolation is not “everything I ever wanted” (I even doubt it is what she would have wanted, but hey, what do I know). It breaks my heart and it makes me angry. It’s a lazy cop-out for writers who never knew what to do with her character and seemingly never liked her, so every time she was in the way, they put her in a sleep coma. It’s only consequent they permanently killed her off now, without ever addressing past conflicts or traumas (She gave up her child!!!??!?! Did she ever get a moment to address that with her son before he was babyfied again, did she get to help him/talk with him/work with him? No. Who cares about her trauma anyways). And yes, it IS being killed off even if they give you a long and supposedly happy life, crammed into ONE episode and ending with you permantenly shelved, while at the same time all your friends, the friends you always fought for and loved (Grumpy, Mulan, Merida, Ariel, Ruby?) don’t even know you’re dying bc it happened in the blink of an eye for them and boom, you’re gone. No last goodbyes, no more adventures, no, you have to die so your husband, the one and only person that matters, the center of your universe gets to see the light. I don’t know, but that’s a message that makes me pretty angry. Furious, even.

a post i made a while back got popular and now people are mad because there are some fandoms i don’t pay attention to

so uh. guess i’ll just clear this up.

HOMESTUCK ISN’T ON THERE BECAUSE I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT IT AND I DON’T REALLY WANT TO. BUT FOR FUCK’S SAKE, FINE.

HERE ARE THE ONES I DIDN’T GET TO

homestuck fandom: bitching about not being on the fandom list because that thing totally wasn’t ridiculously long already and i absolutely knew it would get over eleven thousand notes when i made it

(also, rick and morty wasn’t on there because i’d never heard of it at that time)

rick and morty fandom: probably burning down a mcdonald’s or something

the walking dead fandom: still trying to understand why a tv show based off of a comic isn’t exactly the same even though the mediums are different

lord of the rings fandom (again): mad that i see lotr stuff on my dash once in a blue moon even though i know it’s not dead my mom can tell dialects of elvish apart ffs

cardfight!! vanguard fandom: exists, apparently

yuri!!! on ice fandom (again): ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

fullmetal alchemist fandom (again): nina jokes, hughes jokes, and “fuck yeah”

total drama fandom: i don’t know and i hope i never find out but if it’s anything like it was when i was there then they’re still mad about the whole courtney/gwen/duncan thing or whatever replaced it

servamp fandom: also exists, apparently

jojo’s bizarre adventure fandom (again): mostly aware that the series is batshit crazy but apparently a couple people still think there’s a logical explanation for how we went from jonathan trying to kill his evil stepbrother-turned-vampire to whatever the fuck is happening in part eight

preacher fandom: as far as i know, one guy who brought it up on the last post and literally nothing else

naruto fandom (again): still bitching about ships and the female characters and honestly if you haven’t seen that happening then you clearly haven’t interacted with this fandom at all

bleach fandom (again): same as before, but SO MUCH WORSE NOW

fairy tail fandom (again): either waiting for the next season of the anime or praying that someone manages to retcon the whole thing out of existence

yu-gi-oh! fandom (again): WHY ARE THERE SO FUCKING MANY SPINOFFS NONE OF THIS HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE ORIGINAL MANGA and also abridged jokes

voltron fandom (again): i don’t know, i don’t care, and if i ever see another post related to this shitshow it’ll be too goddamn soon

camp camp fandom: obsessing over daniel, wishing dolf didn’t exist, and surprisingly being mostly okay (mostly)

etsusa bridge fandom: has maybe ten total fans and most of them have given up on other fan content by now

THERE. HAPPY NOW?

anonymous asked:

Ah, those fusions of Loid & Ninten, Jeff & Paula, Kumatora & Duster, and Travis & Floyd look amazing! I'm now kinda wondering what a fusion of Ana & Loid would look like, or Teddy & Ana or Ninten would look like for that matter, as I assume that by their journey's end they'd all have a pretty good bond together. Same goes for the rest of them as their adventures probably took, I don't know, months and they'd probably share many things and get a good understanding of each other.

@iinfinityturtle: I saw your PK Fusion art and I love it! I don’t mean to be a bother, but can you do a Teddy/Leo fusion please? The fandom needs some more Teddy love :)

No matter who Teddy is fused with, they always end up looking super cool. UoU

anonymous: I want to see a Ninten and Claus fusion. 

anonymous: ness and ninten fusion please

gooBERS

anonymous: I absolutely love your art its amazing!! I actually had a question about the mother fusions (a possible new one maybe), in your opinion how stable do you think travis and lucas would be? .0. 

ahh thank you!! That’s a good question, though. They both seem to have somewhat passive personalities, so I’d assume they’d be a fairly stable fusion. Although, to be honest, a lot of Lucas’ fusions are stable because he’s a gentle person, and is usually willing to work with them.

  • me as a writer: i just think it's really interesting, you know, to play around with the expectations of shipfic, to make stories that are neither hea nor hfn nor gen (nor even sad) but take place in this ill-defined gray space where they're kinda *about* a pairing but not properly *shippy*...
  • me as a reader: put them back together!!! *holds up little character dolls like puppets* NOW SAY ILU & KISS !!!

I love how cute is the fandom of Yandere simulator. Like, the game isn’t totally done, it’s just a sandbox debug thing, but we have a developer who’s always looking at the stuff we do and always like it, a lot of rp blogs, super rad artists, small artists, big artists, new artists, we also have some writers, I’ve seen some reader insert, we have headcanons, AU, mods, we also have blood. A lot. And the craziest thing is I barely saw nsfw art ? Like how is this possible?? If we push apart the fact we’re a fandom about a schoolgirl murdering people because she’s in love, we almost sound like a pure as fuck fandom. And god, I’m proud of being a part of this fandom, and all the Yandere simulator’s adventure.
