this is not a ‘vague’ post or directed at anyone specifically, but can we all stop thinking it’s okay to make your followers and friends feel guilty for not sending you memes, mentioning you in posts or replying to messages/IMs immediately? this type of self-involved behavior is NOT okay, on any level. in the past week, i’ve seen at least 10+ vague blogs and outright whining posts (from VARIOUS blogs/people) GUILTING their followers into sending them memes. sorry to break it to you, but to me that only further pushes me away, only turns me off of interacting with you, it only makes people see that you are petty and selfish. this is a hobby. we don’t HAVE to do anything, we don’t HAVE to @ every single friend in every single post for us to still consider them a friend and valued writing partner. we don’t HAVE to send them a meme EVERY TIME. we don’t HAVE to do anything, because this is supposed to be a FUN HOBBY and not a full time job. me not sending you a meme isn’t because i hate your guts. it’s because i’m busy. i don’t have muse. i don’t like the meme. or - sorry to break it to you - i don’t feel like sending you a meme right now. get over it - and yourself. it’s not worth losing valued friends over.
I know some people have already abandoned this post solely based on one of the words in the title. Some left because of the word “vore”. Others left because of the word “safe”.
Let me just say, I’m vore fluff garbage and in not much of a stance to judge people who keep to themselves and their own circles- What this post is about is the ones who refuse to keep it in. The ones who drag death into everything. Those who trod all over the people like me who are repulsed by such death.
What they fail to realize is that this is some people’s safe place. Their happy place. I, personally, comfort myself to sleep by imagining safe vore. It’s where I escape to in my head when the world around me is bearing down and crushing me under pressure. I share this, and much more, with many fans of safe vore.
People who like fatal, if they know what they’re doing, will try to respect the boundaries of more sensitive people. If they don’t, they’ll do all they can to force their views in others’ faces, leaving only themselves happy in the end. They’ll take beautiful work and dribble blood (or worse) all over it. They steal people’s personal pictures of themselves and add gross captions, then post it up as art.
People like this are slowly driving good people out of the vore community. I’ve seen it happen several times over, and it’s making me sick. What exactly are you accomplishing by turning someone’s safe place into their worst nightmare? What are you gaining by forcing them out? Do you think there’ll be more art there just for you after they drop it?
This all will either reach only the people on my side of the argument, or the ones I’ve adressed will look, laugh, and keep doing what they’re doing, but now with more pride than before… But I had to say this. The people who I said were being driven out don’t know me, and I don’t know them, but when they leave the community, I feel like I’m losing a friend. I’m beginning to feel like a wolf walking among fur trappers trying to find my pack, and only finding their pelts. The thing that, not long ago, stopped me from feeling so alone is now making me feel more isolated than ever.
So, seriously. Stop your shit and learn some manners, guys. You’re hurting people far more than you may think you are when you toss death into their happy place.
You are not Gillian's fan anymore? Will you only post things related to David now?
Ok..How can I answer this ask without bringing hate to my inbox… Let me try.
If you scroll down my dash, and if you follow me for a while now, you will notice that I rarely post things related to G’s work, besides TXF (and Gillovny, of course).
Don’t get me wrong, anon, I think Gillian is an AMAZING actress, but David was my first celeb crush, you know? I had his pictures all over my bedroom door, poorly printed on my parents very first color printer.
For a long time I refused to watch any of their works besides TXF - because I thought TXF was the only thing that mattered in my life and D/G are forever my Mulder and Scully. Only recently I watched Californication, and that’s because David’s abs was all over my dash when I started this stupid blog. lol… I took a really long fandom break after IWTB and that pushed me away from our duo.
What made me reconnect with Gillian outside TXF world was her light and funny personality. I loved watching her cons and interviews and I simply got totally amazed by how much she glows around David - and vice/versa.
Now, this past year, I just cannot see her as the same person I once got hooked with. First I thought she changed her public image because she was now an important spokes person for really important issues such as child trafficking. As time went by, I got the impression she has really changed. I may be wrong, and maybe she will come back as the goofball I like to see. But after the recent events, I’m losing hope.
I see D and G as entertainers. It may sound harsh, but that’s what they are. I am not their friend and I do not work for them. So I have the right to “consume” whatever makes me happy, and NOW, Gillian does not make me a happy costumer. Of course things can change, and I hope it does! I miss Gillian, and I miss David when he is around Gillian.
My bf is a lot better looking than me and always gets female attention. Many of his female friends have told him they like him/ asked him out (he always tells me). I'm 24 and he's 21 so most of these girls are younger and hotter tbh. To me he's the full package - excellent personality and drive. I really love him but i do feel a bit insecure seeing all these girls check him out. I'm scared that I lose him or that he chooses one of them over me. I hate feeling this way. Any advice or suggestions?
He chose you. He’s with you. What else matters? You’re allowing superficial things to get in the way of a good thing.
2P! Italy: “Tch. Fine, I’ll play this stupid game.”
- he’d act like he doesn’t care at first but he actually plays to w i n - he either ha a cocky look on his face, or - cUE ITALIAN YELLING/ CUSSING - there is no in between
2P! Germany: “Holy fuck what do these signs mean?”
- probably has no idea what he’s doing - always has the best cards but literally fucking wastes them - cheers on someone whenever they’re winning - doesn’t really care when he loses
2P! Japan: “I see that you’re ready for your inevitable loss.”
- fucking pro - he even has a strategy when playing smh - he could literally delete his aura and everyone would just be surprised that he only has one card left - he will not l o s e
2P! Romano: “You just fucking didn’t.”
- not even competitive lmao - just dramatic as heck - throw him a +2 or +4, he’ll let out the most offended gasp ever - he doesn’t even mean it haha
- is the one giving everyone more cards - he apologizes a lot though - a lot - probably threat #2, next to Kuro
2P! Austria: “Ohohoho~ This game might cause a couple of wars.”
- little shit only knows how to use 2 kinds of cards - Tarot cards and normal cards for weird magic tricks - don’t expect anything from him - but he’s preeetty competitive tho
2P! America: “You fucking cunt, don’t you fucking- fuck you.”
- have mercy on him pls - the one who always initiates the game and the one who always loses - #1 victim - noisy af
2P! England: “Oh dear, I’m afraid I lost track… Is it my turn already?”
- Lutz #2 - but usually just cheers on Allen - doesn’t use his action cards bc he’s a bean - doesn’t even know how to play smh
2P! Canada: “This game is bullshit.”
- usually quiet - flips off when he’s losing - you could see the amusement in his face when Allen is losing - never play UNO with Allen and Matt, kids
2P! France: “…”
- halfheartedly plays while using his phone - never pays attention - occasional grunts and groans, not because he’s losing, but because he just wants it to be over - permanent glare to whoever gave him cards when he’s about to win
2P! Russia: “I don’t see the point in this.”
- silently murdering everyone - his face says displeasure but he really likes playing it - it makes heem feel smarter than everyone is (which is almost true) - analyzes everything
2P! China: “Aw c’mon, man. I thought we were friends.”

- v noisy next to Allen - makes snide remarks when someone is losing - is like, hella lucky when playing - occasional cheating
Oh my god. Either you've never opened a Tintin book in your life, or you're just plain stupid. What the fuck makes you think you could take on Tintin? Have you seen what he can do? He's been shot four different times and lived. He's wrestled bears in Russia. One time he got attacked by three burly men in a Chinese prison and sent all. three. of them to the hospital. Think about that. Do not fight.
Ok, so Haddock's a pretty tough guy. If you tried to take him on physically, you'd probably lose. But if you got him drunk enough you could insult him into submission. But why the hell would you do that? Hasn't he already been through enough? Do not fight.
You'd think since there are two of them, it'd be a loaded challenge, right? Wrong. These two couldn't fight their way out of a paper bag. Go ahead, fight the Thompsons.
Are you really going to fight an old man? A deaf old man? Well if you insist. Just know that this deaf old man was quite an athelete in his youth and knows savate and can probably fuck you up in old-timey ways your millenial ass didn't even know were possible. And god help you should you ever call him a goat. Go ahead, fight Calculus. But you'll probably lose.
Please do not fight Nestor. Do you think that with all he's had to put up with as Marlinspike's lone butler, he'd be any degree of phased at your scrawny punk ass? Please. Look at that fucker's stone cold face. He'll knock your ass out and use your mangled corpse for an ironing board. Seriously. I'm saying this because I like you. Don't fight Nestor.
I do not recommend fighting Chang. Not because I think you'd lose, and not merely because he is a sweet cinnamon roll child who you ought to feel ashamed for thinking you could fight, but look at his posse. He's friends with Tintin AND Haddock. Motherfuckers went to Tibet and fought a Yeti for him. Go ahead, fight Chang, but only if you're prepared for the shitstorm that will follow.
What kind of asshole are you, anyway? You filth, don't even look at me. That's like asking me if it's okay to kick a kitten. And the answer is no. Do not fight Zorrino, and may God have mercy on your soul.
"Poor, weak woman" nothing. There is nothing weak about Bianca. One time she got arrested for conspiracy and shut down her own trial in only FIVE comic panels. When jailed, her biggest concern was that her pasta wasn't being cooked properly. You think she's scared of you? She'll just tag team with Irma and take your ass down in nothing flat. Kneel before the queen, you piece of shit peasant.
PLEASE fight Jolyon. I speak for everyone in the fandom and every character in the series when I say that you'd be doing us all a huge favor. You could probably take him down with one punch. Please fight Jolyon, be the hero this fandom needs.
I'm only attracted to cis women and trans men but I consider myself bisexual mostly because I actually respect the gender identity of those men and it's really easy to cause them dysphoria. I don't feel like we lose anything by just not calling ourselves lesbian especially if it hurts a marginalized group of men to do so regardless.
It took me nineteen years to figure out I was a lesbian. It took me another year to say it out loud to one person. It took two more before I was open to my family and friends. And it takes every single day for me to fight against the internalized lesbophobia I was raised to have and to be proud of who I am.
I am a lesbian. I am a female homosexual. My sexuality is not dependent on other people’s gender identity. You say we will not lose anything by not calling ourselves lesbians, but I am telling you that if I stopped calling myself a lesbian, I will simply be returning to how I once was, refusing to acknowledge an important part of myself, pretending I’m anything other than what I am. And that is losing the progress I’ve made, the pride I’ve gained in being a lesbian. And even if we did change the label, even if we accepted the term of “vagina fetishist” that homophobes are trying to assign us, it will never change the reality that we are female homosexuals.
Just hearing about that anon's friend purposely being sexual around them is making me seriously angry. To that anon, I'm so so so sorry you have to deal with that. I'm not sure what your personality is like, but if I were in your position I would lose my shit on them, and that's not something I normally do. God! Like why???? Why would someone purposely do that???? What kind of horrible person???? Grrr! I'm sorry to that anon, I know they were your friend, but what they're doing is disgusting.
I agree! Friends shouldn’t make friends uncomfortable. It’s just plain disrespectful. Anon, you’ve got tons of support here, and you’re completely valid and loved. Please do whatever you need to do in order to feel comfortable, even if that includes leaving this friend behind.
I'm going to be honest, I'm overweight and I know it. I'm trying to be healthier. Everytime I don't do something my parent wants me to (clean the entire house, walk to the store when I have homework), she calls me lazy and says this is why I'll never lose weight. She tells me that she just wants me to be pretty/wear nice clothes, but that makes me feel worse. Am I not already beautiful? Do I have no self worth if I'm fat and ugly? Like, I used to think I was beautiful, but I hate myself now.
Oh gosh. My friend. :C you are amazing. You are beautiful. You are a worthwhile person. Your weight, your body shape, neither of those means that you are not worthy of respect and love. You are worthy of respect and love at any size. Everything your mom is telling you is complete garbage meant to make you feel bad. This is the same shit I heard from my parents, and it damaged me for years and years. Trust me when I say the scale has nothing to do with your worth.
I want to share with you something that made a big difference in how I saw myself, and how much self worth I had. Its a blog called Shapely Prose, by Kate Harding. I would start here https://kateharding.net/2007/11/27/the-fantasy-of-being-thin/ and then go all the way back to the beginning of her archive, and read forward, it helped me a lot.
But please, whatever you do, don’t believe your mom. You are worthy of respect, and love no matter what you weigh or what you look like. You do not deserve abuse for your appearance.
I'm in love. I'm so deeply in love with the girl I'm with, but sometimes I question whether she means it back. She tells me she loves me—and it's not that I don't believe her—but she constantly lies to me, and has talked about fucking other guys in front of me with her friends. I don't feel like I can trust her, and I'm really just lost on what to do. I don't want to lose her, and she doesn't want to lose me, but is it worth the constant anxiety? She tells me she'll change, but idk. Thoughts?
I have read a lot of stories in books. And maybe, we could really learn a lot from them. We tend to give a lot of chances to the people we truly love. Because we always believe that there’s still hope for them to change. But sweetie, sometimes all they do is to take us for granted. Knowing that we will always be there for them. Sometimes they need to learn from their mistakes. And sometimes, we just need put those lessons in their ways. I hope you’re having a great day. 💓
