it’s been like 4 years and i just wanted to s/o all the folks who’ve made me fall in love with this ship, inspired me to write, and supported me in a variety of ways:
@cheleonrage712: this girl is a BEAST y’all. She’s written cross overs for Bonnie and Klaus with almost every fandom imaginable, from Black Panther to Game of Thrones. Writes some of the most amazing kidfic out there, with kid OC’s that have the most adorable personalities, and is always reblogging and boosting other writers and artists. One time she wrote a drabble about klaus having a tea party with his and Bonnie’s daughter that was so FREAKING CUTE it made me lie down and cry. No joke.
@bonneibennett: my OG! She’s best known as queen of the b*amon fandom and possibly the most perfect cinnamon roll to ever roll, but she’s also a multishipping STAR whose amazing klonnie gifsets and graphics sucked me in. Nisha also has the dubious honor of reccing me my first klonnie fic that forever cemented my love for the ship and ruined my life. Without her encouragement and amazing artwork I would’ve never taken the plunge to writing klonnie. I mean, just look at this talent right here. Enough said.
@darwinquark: another beast of a girl who’s always around when i’m feeling EXTRA SALTY about that one Ship That Must Not Be Named. Her one klonnie fic is so amazing and she herself is so freaking talented. I mean, she gifs, she vids, she edits, she writes, she throws shade like no one’s business. Is there anything this girl can’t do????
@thebennettdiaries: UH-MAZING writer and lovely person. Seriously, this girl is like writing #goals. Wrote one of the hottest klonnie fics TO DATE that I always return to when I need inspiration, incredibly supportive to other writers, always down to talk plot bunnies and headcanons, and consistently fills the klonnie tag with amazing drabbles and chapters. A veteran of the klonnie fandom and one of my all time faves.
@iputaspxllonyou: runs like one of the most beautiful Bonnie Bennett RP blogs I’ve ever seen, is undiluted 100% klonnie trash, and aside from being a talented writer herself, is always around to help me talk ideas and scenarios and read over scenes I’m having trouble with. One of the wittiest people I know, takes no shit, and writes some of the most heartbreaking and beautiful stuff. She has a drabble about Klaus helping Bonnie babysit the neighbor’s kids that I’m pretty sure made me ovulate spontaneously. 10/10 would recommend.
@thehedgerider: YO this girl always leaves the best reviews, smart as a whip and has a brain that can assemble and disassemble stories at the drop of a hat. She started writing Klonnie fic last summer and her very first fic SOMEHOW managed to take 8 years of shitty shitty canon and weave it into something magnificent that develops Bonnie and Klaus both individually and as a couple. I still don’t know how she managed it. Tbh she may have sold her soul to the devil, cos it was that.freaking.brilliant. Also always around to talk sensibly when I’m freaking out about canon stupidity. Bless your heart girl. Go read her fics!
@lilac17: once upon a time I said a prayer for someone to write a klonnie babyfic where everyone’s in character, the cuteness is balanced with development, the angst is paired with fluff, and Bonnie has agency and Klaus grows as a person, and the fandom gods sent THIS GIRL. She’s also currently writing a soulmate fic that breaks and restores my heart in every chapter, and her mastery of emotional conflict breathes so much intimacy and warmth into her stories it’s almost unbearable. She’s also a sweetheart who supports other fans and always stands up for creativity. Go read her stuff and catch all the feels!
@thefudge: if y’all follow us both then you know we spend an inordinate amount of time up each other’s butts so please excuse this gratuitous affection. But YO, she’s my trash sis for a reason. My evil twin. My road dog. My fellow bride of Dracula. The other raccoon in the dumpster with me. This girl is the Lestat to my Robert Redford. She’s such a gifted writer it’s ridiculous y’all. I mean, go see for yourself. Whether it’s gothic romance or bittersweet indie ventures, I always end up flailing and demanding more. This chick’s writing will keep you up at night, but in like a GOOD, i-didnt-know-i-needed-this-until-now kinda way. Aside from being brilliant, she’s also kind and smart and has helped me get through some of the craziest stuff in my life with her beautiful gifsets, amazing fics, and always rewarding conversation. So much so that I hereby forgive her for hurting me with beautiful Klonnie AUs. (You’re welcome bish)
Each and every one of you are responsible for creating a lovely little community in which I’ve felt more inspired, more creative, more welcomed and supported than any other fandom community I’ve been in. Y’all seriously rock, and I can’t wait to keep rocking with this fam <3 Viva la us my loves!
Everything You Taught Me (and the things I’m yet to learn).
- Walter & Paige: 3x02 | 3x22
An observational contrast between Walter’s desire and dream to be close to Paige, while simultaneously pushing her away.
**This is the first gifset I’ve ever created and shared. I hope you all like them. Any feedback is greatly appreciated (still working on my compression quality). I started watching Scorpion on a whim when another one of my regular shows went on hiatus a few months back. I was instantly hooked and Waige became my OTP. Ugh.. I got hit hard with Them Ship Feels. Hence the name of this page.
And what a great fandom! I dedicate this gifset to @webuiltthepyramids who encouraged me in a quick message the other day to post the gifs I make.
-You are no more Mr Strange than my wife is! -Well, it is easily resolved. There are any number of magical things my friend could do to prove it. -Oh, yes? And what might they be? -Yes, tell us, Merlin.
Idk if I should talk abt this bc I'm white & I don't want to speak out of turn but I think Tumblr's content filter might be racist. I'm in fandom with character who is a black man. Whenever I make gifs of him they get (falsely) nsfw by the filter evn b4 they're out of my drafts. If I make gifs with the white chars this doesn't happen. Also feel like I've noticed a high proportion of gifsets with poc being falsely marked as nsfw. But not sure if it's confirmation bias. Anyone else noticed this?
hmmm, this is the first time i see this mentioned to be honest? in my case, of the edits i’ve made since the whole filter thing started, only two of them were marked as adult oriented or whatever they are calling it. Both of them were of woc, but I only ever make edits with poc so i’m not sure i’m a good example. If it helps anyone, one of those edits was of an asian girl and the other a light-skinned black woman. The others, two of dark skinned black women, one of a mixed woman, an icon pack of ww and one of black panther, were not marked as such,
The two edits that got marked were revised and un-marked in less than 12hs too, but has anyone else noticed this?
(and I’m mentioning skin tone because I read somewhere that tumblr automatically tries to flag posts with ‘lots of skin’ showing, and that their bot counts “nude” or the color of light skin as that).
Hey Goop, when did you realize you were a ryuketsu girl? I remember going through episode 4 and noting the line "thanks for not cheating on me" but not thinking about it, and episode 5 when I first watched it was a blur, but then just half-way through the elections I just arbitrarily thought "well yeah Ryuko and Senketsu are greatest love story ever-WHAT?!" and it all just sort of snapped into place. I think the self-surprise was part of why I stuck to it so hard these last 3 years.
This one moment. At the end of episode 5. After Senketsu risks his life for Ryuko and Ryuko responds by sticking with him and hugging him even as this horrifying man threatens her with a gun and tells her that what she’s hugging is a monster.
I suppose more seriously, though, I don’t think I was consciously aware I liked the idea of the two as a couple then (after all, I wasn’t consciously aware of my interest in non-human/human relationships at the time), but I was intrigued. I didn’t care for the show at all until I saw this, and it was this one episode that really made me consider giving the series a chance.
This is probably the oldest documented thing I got regarding my feelings on the matter, from January, 2014:
This one is comprised of weird avatar placement, idle animations, and gasp walk cycles! Just like you knew there would be. <3
During both sequences when the Inquisitor doubles over in pain from her arm, the camera cuts away from Solas to focus on them. With flycam, I noticed that he doesn’t simply disappear, like I might imagine, or that he doesn’t just stand idle in place while the camera cuts away. Nope, they have him just chilling while the Inquisitor literally falls to their knees in agony. Good shit, pretty funny.
I can say for certain though, at least in these cuts and not necessarily pivotal ones (like both times he walks towards the eluvian) that this stride is not the same as the ones I had in my first gifset with his walking animation in the Frostback Mountains. I’d personally blame the armor, but it’s also noteworthy that he isn’t actually confident here, and not providing a perfect solution to the Inquisitor. This conversation is stressful for him, painful, and one he’s been simultaneously looking forward to and dreading all at once. He’s not practically bouncing on his soles, far from it. This is likely the last time, if not the second to the last time, he’ll ever see her. We won’t know until DA4.
Ever since the Doctor Who tv movie almost twenty years ago (which I saw when it first aired lucky me), I thought the one thing – the one thing! – the notoriously never-let-anything-go Who fandom agreed on was to NEVER AGAIN bring up the whole half-human thing. So I decided to do this gifset to completely take my mind off it.
(And yes, the four kids joke is exactly as awesomely terrible as you think it is. With an emphasis on the awesomely. And also on the terrible. I kind of love it.)
