all grown up! fandom

anonymous asked:

What do you think happens to nations when they, like Prussia is now, lose their nation responsibilities? According to the wiki, "Himaruya states that all of Germany's siblings are "retired" and that they may die out and disappear over time." Do they disappear into thin air, or die, or what? I think it's a nice thought that they would, essentially, become mortal and get to live out the rest of their lives as if they were normal humans, but I don't know if that's too much to hope for. Thoughts?

I’m sorry you asked for my thoughts and I’ve written an essay. Before I can talk about Prussia and the German Brothers I need to look at everyone else.

good gosh yoda’s a sucky teacher

but then he has spent the last twenty-odd years in isolation and the echo chamber of his own mind

and it’s been even longer since he had a one-to-one master/student dynamic

and i sincerely doubt he’s ever had to teach someone with almost no prior indoctrination instruction in jedi ways, or someone who actually stood their ground on how most of his platitudes are vapid at best and nonsensical at worst (not that luke does; he’s still too overawed by this whole mystical space wizard business)

so, understandable but still inexcusable

Project: Nine Years of Taylor Swift

On October 24th, 2006, Taylor Swift released her first album titled after herself ‘Taylor Swift’. Now she is a multi-platinum artist that does not seem to ever slow down. Nine years ago (even more) Taylor began changing our lives.

I was only 11 years old when the first album came out and I have been a fan ever since; as I’m sure many of you have been.

Project: “Nine Years Of Taylor Swift” is something that I thought of doing to show Taylor how much things have changed for us and for her. So on October 24th, 2015 please post a picture of yourself from 2006 and a picture of you today. In today’s photo you can do whatever you want, whether it’s holding her albums, tickets, merch, or at a concert OR show your growth since then by holding up a grad cap or something that you are proud of. JUST GO CRAZY!!!

If you don’t want to forget, save a picture from back then and then have a recent one of yourself. Say whatever you want to Taylor, thank her, etc etc and then schedule the post to be posted on October 24th (make sure both pictures are in the same post). In the hashtags, tag the post as #NineYearsOfTaylorSwift

Let’s make this a big event for the entire fandom!!! I think it’ll be cool to see everyone all grown up and everything!!!!

Hi!  I don’t know too much about how tumblr really works and usually just stick to browsing my dash, (your blog is my favorite, I check it multiple times a day - thank you for being such a positive, kind, and informative person!).  I made this Klaine fan video and thought some people in the fandom might like to see it and I’m not sure how to get it out there, (I don’t have many followers).  So, I thought I’d send it to you.  So sorry if I’m bothering you or doing this wrong!  I thought it might bring a little hiatus relief and this song was too perfect.  Thank you so much from a fellow grown-up Gleek for all you do for the Klaine and Glee fandom!!!

Gleekto says:

First of all, thank you for such a sweet message.

Second of all - this video is LOVELY and PERFECT. The song is perfect - and I hadn’t heard it before…but the chorus is ‘If only New York wasn’t so far away….’

So many feels. Thank you. Lovely lovely klaine vid.

“One more hug”

I guess I missed my chance. Too poor to have afforded tickets. To far to have gone even if I could afford them. He’s serious. I’ll never get my chance to meet Taylor Caniff. For so long, all I’ve wanted was to meet him and the rest of the boys (and Mahogany of course) but, I never could afford it. Now, thanks too idiotic people tweeting stupid shit, I’ll never meet one of the boys who saved my life.

They don’t know it, but 11 boys and 1 girl saved my life. I am an original Taylor girl, and I cried reading those tweets last night.

For years, I’ve suffered from depression. I spent so much of my time fighting off the battle wounds others were inflicting upon me, that I didn’t see fault in the wounds I inflicted on myself.

When I first became a fan of these viners, I was still cutting. They gave me a reason to be happy, and with the help of the original 9 (Taylor, Carter, Nash, Cam, Jack and Jack, Matt, Aaron, and Shawn) I quit cutting.

The boy in the bandanas, the one that shouted out crude words and cared generously for his fans, he stuck out the most to me. He made me happy. Taylor Caniff made me happy. Most people don’t see how, but he did. As the others (Jacob, Hayes, Sammy, Mahogany) were added, I fell in love with them too. They became part of my life also.

For all the hate Taylor got last night, it felt like a stab in the heart. I’ve never been so upset. When he deactivated, I cried. I woke up this morning to a tweet with a picture of his YouTube video. The End Taylor Caniff. In the picture, he was wiping away tears. My heart then shattered into a million pieces.

The fact that all I saw last night, “he can’t spell” “high school dropout” “homophobic” was all started by a Cameron Dallas fan account, upset me. So what? Who was the ONLY person trying to hold this fandom together after April 17th? Who was the one that comforted Matt when he was upset? Taylor. Taylor does everything he can for us, but no one appreciates it.

To the person that started that trend last night, and to all those that followed: I hope you’re happy, knowing that you broke the strongest person I know because by doing so, you broke me. I did something I regret last night, and I pray that he didn’t.

#WhyEverybodyLikesTaylorCaniff:
Because when all others turned away, Taylor Caniff was there for me. He doesn’t know me, he’s never met me. Now, I may never meet him. But, I will forever be grateful to have known of such a wonderful human being. Taylor Caniff gives me the strength to continue, as does everyone else that has been earlier mentioned. I can only pray that he’ll be okay. I respect his decision to delete social media, he needs the break. I wish him the best as I get my hopes up, praying that he’ll come back, but knowing my hopes must be wasted. Taylor Caniff is the reason I work to stay strong, one of the reasons I can now smile and mean it. He means the world to me. That’s why I love him.

I now know that I’ll never meet him, and it crushes me. I just hope, that one day he’ll get everything in life that he desires. Maybe one day he’ll settle down and have a nice family, earn a wonderful job, and maybe even come back to twitter. I want him to know that I’ll miss him. One day, years from now, when this fandom is all grown up and most of us have forgotten, I’ll remember. I’ll remember the people that got me through hell, that brought a smile to my face, and that made me feel loved. I’ll never forget the boy who brought a true smile to my face for the first time in a long time.

Taylor Caniff, I love you.

Xx Angel ❤️
