and i keep spamming you with the same things

So here’s just a few things you should keep in mind when it comes to this blog. This is not me ranting or venting, it’s simply for you, my follower, to read so that I can avoid unnecessary trouble

1. I will get to your request eventually. I have tons of asks right now about the same thing and you need to know that I’m not abandoning them. You might think that it didn’t send which is possible! We all know how tumblr can be. But please, spamming me won’t make it go any faster. You need to keep in mind that I don’t only draw. I have school, other hobbies and a bunch of problems I have to deal with irl. Sure I post a lot of my own ideas and more recent requests, but that’s because I, as of right now, prioritize my own enjoyment. Your requests will get done eventually, but I’m not a drawing machine. It takes time to simply get inspiration, and then I have to get motivation as well. So sorry if it takes a while but I will get to it

2. Do not repost my art without my permission. I don’t know how many times I’m gonna have to say this. I’m not gonna lie, sometimes I google my own username and find a bunch of reposts. Sure they are credited but I need to know if you repost it. I’m usually fine with it, I just want to know where it gets posted and who will see it. If you have been granted my permission then you are free to post as many artworks you want because, as said, I just want to know what website it will end up on. And remember that I just found these because I searched on my username. I have no clue how many artworks of mine have been posted and not credited since I’m mostly just on tumblr and dA. I don’t have instagram, twitter, pinterest, etc. and therefore I won’t know. If you see my art outside of tumblr or dA please notify me so I can ask them to either take it down or credit me

3. I will draw and make headcanons about stuff that might be offensive or make you uncomfortable. Starting with the thing I know that my mutuals and some of my followers have a problem with, which is incest. I definitely don’t promote the actual thing, just like I don’t promote any other dark themes shown on this blog (such as the manipulation and abuse) but I see nothing wrong with shipping it. However, I know some of you do, which is why I ask you to please just add it to your blacklist. I make sure to tag everything that might make people uncomfortable (not only incest) and this is just the easiest way to make sure that no one gets offended as I want everyone to be able to enjoy this blog. If I miss tagging anything then you have every right to send an ask and tell me so I can change that. I respect your opinion and I want you to respect mine

As for the headcanons, they’re based on realistic personalities. Don’t get mad because I headcanon your favorite character as something you don’t agree on/like. I don’t set their traits based on how much I like them, just how I see them. I’d love to hear your opinion, just don’t start a debate!

4. My designs might differ depending on what I feel like drawing. This is obviously the least important thing here and I’m not getting questioned when I draw my designs differently (which is great) buuut yeah it could be useful to keep this in mind

A/N: Oh my god you guys!!  I have so much to discuss but first and foremost I want to thank all of you for making this story into what it is.  I started this story two weeks ago and in those two weeks I’ve gained almost 2000 followers and have had success that I never even dreamed of.  Thank you so much for all that you’ve done for me, for this story, and hopefully for stories I write in the future!!! Skyline wouldn’t be what it is today without you guys.  Secondly, there will be a pt. 7!!!  I know I keep saying this, but I really did mean for this to be the last part.  It’s just that there are so many things I want to include and plot points I want to flesh out, and although I feel bad for writing angst chapter after angst chapter, I want to give you guys my all and I don’t want to short change you.  Finally, I would like to thank my friends Zoe and Jen for helping me brainstorm ideas and helping finalize details and plot points.  I love you guys so so much!!  Also, everyone, again, I DO NOT HAVE A TAGS LIST!!! I put this at the beginning of every chapter, it’s in my bio, and I’ve made multiple posts but people keep spamming me about it.  I am truly not trying to be mean, but I do my best to respond to every ask and message I get, and having to sort through a million people asking the same question is hard guys!!!.  Before, I go, one last thing: because everyone has sent me in songs that they listen to that remind them of Skyline, I compiled them into a playlist along with ones I listen to!!  Please give it a listen and try to listen in order, as the songs follow the storyline.  Link is below.  Enjoy everyone!!

Waking up the next morning was hard.  Sleep was like temporary amnesia, and when you awoke alone in bed, your hand automatically reached out for the note that Spider-Man always left before he disappeared every night.  Instead of feeling the usual smooth sheet of paper, however, you felt empty sheets that seemed colder than ever before.  It was then that the events of the previous night tumbled into your head, from your request to know Spider-Man’s identity, to him saying I love you for the first time, to you giving him up.

You groaned and rubbed your hand across your face, fatigue taking over.  More than anything, you wanted to fake an illness, stay in bed all day, and wallow in your thoughts, but you knew you had to get up. Although the breakup hurt you (did it count as a breakup if you were never really together in the first place?), you knew you made the right choice.  There was no way a relationship with a superhero would work out if the significant other didn’t know who they were; if you were to fall in love, you would need to be able to fall completely.

So I woke up to see that @avveh has knocked Jimin out of second spot on her bias list while I slept so peacefully. That’s fine. That’s cool. But if you happen to see a lot of Jimin spam on your dashes today, I apologize. I have to fight for his spot against @btssmutgalore and @jeolla-jagi who are making her swerve for Taehyung and I intend to tag her in every Jimin post I come across while she sleeps.

anonymous asked:

yo i got the same bullshit lmfao

did you take the sat/act recently?? if you checked yourself off for ‘yes i’d like for colleges to send me stuff’ that’s why you’ve been getting all this junk mail

READ AND REBLOG

To all people who ship me or the following that is listed below with others.

@fakku-bun - @lil-clumsy-arts-blog - @mim-101 - @mleak107 - @rosie601 - @thepleasantjellybean - and any others that are having the same issue.

I think I speak for all of us here when I say this but please note that we are all trash for ships but then there comes a time of place to put our foot down *put foot down* would you please stop and take a moment to think about us? I’m not saying it’s bad to ship us with other people that were really best friends with. Like for example, I really, really love ships…. But I am not one to spam into people’s inboxes 24/7 and say “oh, I ship this” or “I ship ‘user1’ with 'user2’ too”. It’s fine to request a drawing of your favorite ship but please do not keep asking constantly it’s really annoying and people have other request to be doing. I also recommend to show your true face (aka: user icon) because if you are anonymous we will think that you are the same person over and over again and that is the kind of thing that pisses us all off at the most. Cuz we never know if you’re a random person that we never met or if you’re a random person but who keeps spamming us with anonymous. Or if you’re just too shy tag your name in it it’s not that hard guys we honestly don’t mean to sound harsh or just sound like we don’t care about you. because I honestly do care! We care! it’s just hard to care for someone when you’re always hidden. We love everyone! So please just stop this madness guys.

•|•·Please spread this around to help stop this·•|•

hey @ anon who keeps spamming i think i know who u are and ur being pathetic and u need to move on. there’s a reason we’re not friends anymore.

and @ the other anon who’s getting hostile i asked u to drop it and ur being rude, so that’s why you were blocked. i don’t care that u want to argue, i don’t see the point of u repeating the same thing at me.

that’s enough pls, i’d rather not get any asks rn, posi or negative i’m just tired


i’m turning off anon for a while, sorry lads

Signs based on people I’ve met:

Aries - Istg, I can’t keep up with you. Too much energy. How come you don’t explode? Cool mates, but always getting in trouble. Fucking balls of light. Have a hard time admiting their faults. Stop spamming my twitter, btw.

Taurus - Can’t figure you out until you decide to actually open up. Hella fascinating people with big hearts. But if crossed once, they’re out forever. Stubborn as fuck. Need to be dragged out of their houses against their will. Have a lot of know-it-all moments, it’s kinda cute.

Gemini - They’re weird. They’re here and they’re there. I’ve met the cool ones and the uncool ones. Chill down with the flirting skills, if you may. Talk a lot and are funny as fuck. It’s hard to trust you, though. But well, you’re all sexy as fuck.

Cancer - Manipulative little shits with big hearts that cry for them when they can’t cry on their own. Sensitive people who know what to say because they actually listen and don’t just wait for their turn to talk. They’re the mom friend you both hate and love.

Leo - Queens of the drama club. Care a lot for their own. You either love them or you hate them, there’s no in-between. Need to chill tho, they’re always so defensive… not everyone is trying to dethrone you, you big fluffy cat. 

Virgo - Worrisome people at heart. Loyal friends who know how to keep their head in the clouds and their feet on the ground at the same time. But yo, Virgos, you’re not always right. And stop with the “I told you so”, it’s getting old. CHILL! Thank you for the good advices tho.

Libra - Omg, you guys are always spamming shit over my Facebook feed. I get it - yadda yadda - your love life is a mess but jfc, no one actually cares. With that aside, you guys have them brains and it’s nice to discuss things with you. You always manage to see the world from a different perspective, one no one has considered yet.

Scorpio - I kinda have a crush on all of you. Your soul is deeper than your asshole, I guess that’s why we get a taste of said asshole first. But well, even if you try to play it cool, you and I both know you have lots of feelings. Also, chill with the vampire books, okay? Yeah, yeah, you’re a badass. We know, we know.

Sagittarius - Tbh, you’re like the wind. I need small portions of your presence in my life but if it’s too much everything becomes a mess and I’ll have to kick your ass. They’re cool people tho. Once they’re in your life they’ll make sure they leave a mark so when they walk out you’ll actually miss them. Hella presence of spirit.

Capricorn - You’re not as cool as you think. You’re either hella interesting or hella boring. Like to play the victim far more often than they should, but oh well. Loyal friends. Will be real with you and will allow you to be just as real with them. Can’t really get rid of them, lol. Don’t cry on their shoulder, they will just talk shit in a cheap attempt of trying to cheer you up.

Aquarius - They’re aliens. That’s all there is to be said. Oh, also airheads at best. Feel too deep, show too little. Will live for their friends or not live at all. They’re smarter than they think. But when they do know that they’re smart they act like some smug motherfuckers.

Pisces - Change is their middle name. They’ve already reinvented themselves the second time you meet. They adapt too fast even though they’re just little balls of fluff. Don’t be mistaken tho, there’s a storm inside them. And, if you’re the right person, they’ll let you sail through the vast ocean that is their mind. Melancholy is their best friend. Call them at 4am with your shitty thoughts and they’ll be there for you. They’re heartbreakers at their finest.

“How to get 5sos to notice you”

        Hello there, my name is Julia, and my twitter is @ashtonarmy. As some of you may know, I have 5/4 and 5sos noticed me a few times. I’d like to start this by saying that I am not bragging and what I am going to say may not work for everyone, but it worked for me and a lot of my friends.

Today I’m going to talk about “How to get 5sos to notice you”.

I’m going to try and tell you how I got my follows and how I did for them to notice me and to be honest with you it takes time to get noticed.  

      LET’S GET STARTED!

  • BAND ACC: I first got noticed by @5secsofsummer it was their old band acc user (now @5sos) they were rting people about the same subject, using a hashtag and I was lucky enough to get rted. They were my 5/4 and followed me completely randomly so I believe it was Ashton.
  • MICHAEL CLIFFORD: I tweeted “My dog is a Michael girl” and 5 seconds after he followed me. It was by indirect. He was my ¼.

 

  • ASHTON IRWIN: I was sick that day and I didn’t tweet for like 35 hours and when I woke up I saw that Ashton had followed me. I think he was creeping under his name and found my account. (Or maybe it was because I drew a picture of him and put my @ on it and he reblogged it on tumblr?) I have no idea it was really random. He was my 2/4. Ashton also faved my tweet about Portugal. I am not Portuguese, but I was helping them trending #PortugalNeeds5SOS and Ashton saw my tweet. See, sometimes you just got to help others, be selfless and good things will happen to you.

 

  • LUKE HEMMINGS: Damn that boy was hard to get a follow from. Now I think it isn’t as hard as it used to be. It was when he wasn’t really following fans and I literally indirected him every day and one day I got tired, it was like 2 am so I tweeted “It’s not like Luke is going to follow me I’m so tired, goodnight.” And guess what I saw when I woke up? Hundreds of people, tweeting me saying that I was an idiot. Luke followed me during my sleep, by indirect. He was my ¾. On year later, Luke faved my tweet and rted another tweet (this on the same day). As always, it was because he was creeping. He was favoriting everyone’s tweet about him favoriting tweets (smart boy). He rted my tweet saying “Luke looks like Jimmy Neutron.” Again, indirects work.

 

  • CALUM HOOD: Just as Luke, Calum was really hard to get a follow from. Before going to bed I tweeted “I’m praying that I will wake up with a Calum follow” or something like that, I don’t remember. He was my 4/4, he also followed me by indirect. Calum rted my tweet saying “Calum Hood as an emoji: *insert creepy man with a mustache emoji*” (sorry I can’t see emojis on my laptop but yeah I hope you see which one I’m talking about, haha). Again, it was an indirect (IT WORKS).

       By writing my experience, I don’t mean to brag or anything. It’s actually really hard to get a follow so the best advice I can give you is to never give up.

       Now, I’m going to give you a few tips on how 5sos follow people (I REPEAT, THIS MAY NOT WORK FOR EVERYONE):

THEY ALL CREEP A LOT!!! I’d just like to say that I hate spams. It just annoys me! Do not spam. It’s not cool, it’s not like they really read your tweet and smiled, because everyone spam! Be original, be creative! Indirect them funny stuff and when you do it don’t ask for a follow! Don’t steal other people’s tweet it’s when I least expected it that they followed me! Getting a follow by spam ain’t funny but when you indirect them they might laugh at your tweet if it’s funny, they might smile because you said something cute about them. Think about it, what do you want the most? Just the follow, or the satisfaction that they followed you because for a second you made them happy.  If you do indirect them don’t ask for a follow please, I know I keep saying the same thing but that’s important. If you do, add something cute. I feel like some people only want a 5sos follow to be famous or something but making them smile must be your priority!

Here’s a tip that might work with all the 5sos boys (well I don’t know about Ashton or Michael now because Michael used to be easy to get a follow from because he used to creep all the time): Indirect them funny stuff. Try to tweet a picture, maybe an edit you made and be creative, think of a tweet that may be funny, be original and don’t steal someone else’s tweet. Sometimes 5sos notice people who stole tweets and I promise you don’t want that person to be you. That’s just so rude for the person you stole the tweet from.

     Sometimes of course it’s good to ask for a follow. For exemple, my Luke follow: I was going to bed and I was tired, I was SURE that he wasn’t going to follow me. It’s ok to tweet “He won’t ever follow me” because if he actually reads this, he will want to prove you wrong.

For Ashton I really don’t know what to say, I don’t know how he follows people. You can maybe try to indirect him but not asking for a follow? Or if you have “ashton” “Irwin” “5sos” “ash” in your @ you have a higher chance to get a follow.

Luke has been following a lot recently and ONLY by indirects, I’ve checked. Recently he only types “Luke” in the search bar and looks for tweets about him. You should really tweet something nice even if he doesn’t rt you or favorite your tweet or even follow you, he may see it and you may make him smile.

When you see that people in your timeline start spamming them, it’s your time to shine! Creep on their acc, see who they followed last and what was the type of tweets the person tweeted, if it was spam or indirects, then start tweeting them too!

You have to understand that sometimes 5sos are tired and they may see your tweet but not follow you. We are all humans, we’re not machines and sometimes it must be annoying to have people that only ask for a follow! Remember to tweet ask them how they are doing or if they had a nice day (that’s called being polite).

            Finally, I’d like to say that 5sos creep a lot so be careful of what you say, they also have feelings in case you didn’t know… Some things can really hurt so think before you tweet and don’t go behind their backs saying rude things and when they come online act innocent.

         They will eventually follow you, it takes some time, sometimes you won’t sleep, but at the end of the day it will be worth it. If you want it bad enough, you will get it. Again, I know that lot of you already know all of these “How to get 5sos to follow you” tips, but my friend told me that it would be nice if I wrote how I got 5/4 and that I would want someone to write this for me if I had 0/4 and as always, she’s right. I hope you appreciated that I took my time for you and I also hope the advice I gave you will be useful. Again, that worked for me, it doesn’t mean it will obviously work for you too. Just don’t give up and good luck everyone!

PS: after you read this, try at least to reduce the spam.

Julia, from @ashtonarmy on twitter. Tweet me if you have any questions or if you want me to rt your indirects.

Hi it’s me again, little update, Michael tweeted me and Calum faved my tweet.

Oh surprise, it was by indirecting them! Indirects do work, they check them often and I bet they read tons of tweets but they can’t rt or favorite everything, just be original try to make them smile! byeee

So the worst thing about tumblrs best stuff first is it’s been proven that tumblr @staff can’t create an algorithm if their lives depended on it because they keep putting the exact same post from my tags on my browser dashboard for months and spam me with it like somehow I’ll enjoy it more the tenth time seeing it in an hour.

I had that feature on briefly and it kept spamming me with a post about a Nintendo direct that already happened.

This site just straight up doesn’t work right if you have it do anyrhing but show you content in a chronological order.

Art advice post: Gaining fans

OK! :D I promised a few of you I was going to write this advice post and I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to sit on my butt and get around to it. (I have the flakiest motivation ever). But here it is, it’s a biggie. I get asked this question a lottttt. Here’s something of an answer.

Question: How do I get a fanbase to care about my work/project/art. How do I even GET a fanbase?

Answer: The first thing I’m going to say is that unless you’re lucky enough to create something that strikes as viral and gains quick popularity from minimal work (like mini comedy comic strips) you are in for a VERY VERY LONG SLOG. I’m not talking a month. I’m not talking a year. I’m saying you’re going to be VERY SLOWLY getting people to care about your stuff over years and YEARS of hard work that very few people will even end up seeing, let alone caring about. If the thought of that pisses you off or makes you want to look for a magical shortcut- just give up now or don’t even bother starting. The most important part of trying to get a following for anything creative is understanding that NOBODY OWES YOU ANYTHING NOMATTER HOW HARD YOU WORK. The attention of strangers is something that is gained after people see you’re in for the long haul and serious about your own work. People don’t like flakes. They dont like it when people hate on their own stuff constantly or fish for compliments disguised as self loathing. It gets tiring fast. You have to 100% WANT to succeed. When i wake up in the morning I don’t think ‘wahhh what if everything fails, what if nobody cares’. I get the hell up, sit at my desk, and work towards MAKING people care about my work, by making my work the best it can be. If you’re going to be negative at least channel your frustrations into working on your project instead.

Consistency of work and sharing is vital to keep peoples interest. If you vanish offline for months at a time people will simply move onto the next thing that grabs their attention or updates regularly. You have to engage your audience and potential audience. That is nobodies responsibility but your own. So don’t moan about nobody seeing your stuff if you can’t put the personal effort in to get it out there. I see so many people do this. Nobody will come to you looking for you. Nobody is going to find a marble in a ballpit unless they have some damn knowledge that the marble is even IN there to begin with. This is about EFFORT. TIRING HORRIBLE DISGUSTING EFFORT. Lazy people can sometimes gain a following but personally I wouldn’t be happy with myself creatively if I knew I wasn’t giving it my all.

You need COMMITMENT to your project and skills. The one person that should love your thing the MOST is YOU. If you don’t go to bed at night daydreaming about your characters and stories, thinking about how to improve your skills or even hoping for people to care then nobody else will either. Why should they? People will emotionally invest in something that has real emotions. Don’t just do something for the sake of it. You really have to believe in what you’re trying to create. If you can convince yourself that you have something good then you’re a step closer to making someone else care.

Now i mentioned that this takes years and it does, but one of the best things you can do for yourself (and others) is to get involved with other things around you. Draw for other people, show your love for other peoples work, openly show your love for the things that inspire you to make your own stuff. You’ll make friends, you’ll LEARN things, your skills will improve and you will become less cautious about sharing when it comes to your own projects. The things closest to us are the scariest to share right? So you need to get used to that early on. The more you do it the less disappointed you’ll get when you expect a certain response and don’t get it *lol*.

As an artist who gained popularity through fanart before my own original projects I’d say draw fanart- but don’t get hung up on it. I don’t believe that every single artist out there is destined to make something of their own. Some of us like watching sports while some play them. It’s the same with art really. Not everyone has that enthusiasm to follow through on an idea. Fanart is safe, it’s comfortable and it’s a group activity. Everyone already knows what their dealing with so you’re adding to an already solid concept. Draw fanart sometimes, it’s cool. HOWEVER if you want to get further on with your art as a career you REALLY REALLY need to develop and share your own ideas too. I say this because you do not own another persons property nomatter how much you may love it. If you’re building your own reputation off another creators back you’re walking on shaky ground. Employers will often like to see a bit of fanart to show you can commercially deal with existing IP in a professional way, but what they really want to see is how your brain ticks and what new ideas you can bring to THEM, not something legally unusable.

So fanart. It’s a gateway into originality and getting people to care about your skills or even you as a person. If two people like the same thing then there’s a chance they might also like something entirely new together. So keep that in mind. Make friends who share your interests!

On the subject of friends. Something I cannot stress enough. DO NOT spam, harrass, ass kiss, stalk or be a tryhard to befriend an artist you look up to. They have absolutely NO obligation to share your work with their readership. Getting in with a famous artist does not= overnight instant fame for your stuff. Get that out of your head right away. It makes me so fucking sad when people use creative folk as stepping stones simply to forward their own popularity. People can spot a fake friend a mile away. I have to deal with more than a few :\ and it makes you very very jaded. Be a friend, not a opportunist. I’ve had a few great artists share my work over the years and i try to do the same for my own friends too, but I never approached them with only THAT in mind. Don’t be an art creeper be genuine.

Because remember- NOBODY OWES YOU ANYTHING EVER.

Another big thing, you need to have an online presence. People need to remember your name, your brand, your style and where to find you. Get a website. Get a blog. Get ALL THE THINGS on social media. Talk into the void about your work and eventually people will slowly (very slowly) read what you have to say. If they can find you that is. Singular websites are incredibly difficult to stumble across, even with Google. You have to get your ass into communities, events, public events and NETWORK LIKE CRAZY. You are the only person who can do this for you! Unless you pay for an agent, lol. But you are the person who best knows your work and what you want to do.

YOU ARE NOT going to get a following for your work with 1 twitter account that uploads maybe 1 character sketch every 8 months. Nobody will give a shit. I wouldn’t. Make a CONSTANT effort and people will make an effort for you.

Something i’ve had a few times at conventions which drives me potty (in a nice way) is when artists come up to me at the table looking for advice and they pull out a single bit of art they drew on paper like its the crown jewels. They just have a character design, nothing else. Yet they want to make a comic or be hired or whatever. Why are you not already drawing comics of your own? If you cant write why haven’t you teamed up with a writer yet? What is your excuse? When I was 12 I was sending 60page full color comics across the ocean to companies to try get their attention. I was a kid. You are an adult. Get on it! Nobody will care unless you put in the hard work VERY REQUIRED of this type of work and they can see you have high output.

What else… hmmm. I think a lot of you get discouraged when you have indeed tried for years yet the uptake has been torturously slow. You get self hatey on your projects. What would I do rather than hate my work I’m supposed to care about deeply? Stop, realise that I’m obviously doing something wrong, then try to remake it entirely into something people might care about more. You can really drag a project by not being honest with yourself or being willing to bash your own stubborness and try something new. Some of the most famous stuff out there was rehashed like 8 times before it became what it is now. When i had to entirely press the self destruct button on my old story it was actually the breath of sanity and fresh air that allowed me to create Engelbaum from scratch. And years later I am SO GLAD that I did. So sometimes, if something isn’t working, try something new. Salvage the bits you genuinely care about. We improve all the time, so just keep working on it.

It might be easy to look at other artists or writers and see the GIANT HUMILIATING SIZE of their fanbase and think 'wow I’m an unremarkable piece of shit’. But chances are they’ve been at it for years and they will (everyone does) started off with 0 fans. We all start at the bottom. Some of us have it easier and some of us struggle. Sometimes luck and random happenings, chance meetings and so on play a big part. But the only time “luck” happens is when you’ve worked hard to put yourself into a position to receive good news in the first place. It’s a chain reaction, not luck. Not magic. Nothing or nobody owes you anything. Repeat repeat repeat.

Long story short, if you’re serious about your work, see it like a child. You have to be committed to take care of it, introduce it to the world and instil good values into it. Don’t halfass it. Don’t be a bad artmomma and expect the world to throw you gratitude for a halfbaked potatochild :|

I hope that helps a few of you. Harsh truths, lol.

501

man, i don’t even know where to start with you, aside from the obvious breaking of the ask meme rules, u test me everyday boy.

I can never tell how you feel about me, because I think your feelings are things that you keep very close to your chest, but I consider you to be one of my best friends, regardless of whether or not you feel the same way. I never worry about messaging you, I never feel like I’m bothering you when I start a conversation, or spam you with screenshots; I know that our server is a safe place where I can be me, and lately - I need that, because I feel like I shouldn’t.. even be occupying space. Talking to you is easy, and I don’t even need to think about it. It comes to me as naturally as breathing, and I just hope that you can empathise with that. You make me laugh, and we share the same viewpoint on a lot of things. it’s refreshing to talk to you, even if I’ve spoken with you almost daily for a year.

I will admit, I was hurt when you took your hiatus, if only because you didn’t really tell me about it, or communicate it with me. One day, you were just suddenly gone, and for a time during your absence, I really did think I had lost a friend, and that you weren’t coming back. I’m glad you did, but I will admit that I still worry that you’ll vanish again, only- you won’t reappear afterwards. Leaving the game is fine, and if you did decide to do it, I’d support you either way, but keep me in the loop, if you can?

Aside from that, I’m really glad that I reached out to you when I did, and I struggle to think what my life would be like now if I had just kept scrolling that day, rather than opening your chatbox, and demanding that we rp. I love the stories that we write together, and the characters that we tangle together, and the mindless pve time we spend together, even though you’re halfway across the globe. So, yeah - you’re pretty important to me. 

But, u know i mean I DO wish you’d take up my show recommendations or my song recommendations, but we’ll get there [buffs nails]

send me a number between 1 & 500 and I’ll say how I feel about you without revealing your identity.


Okay…

At this point you are probably asking yourselves, “Why does she keep answering asks if she doesn’t want to, and she seems to just be saying the same things over and over again, why doesn’t she just stop???”

A solid question, to which the answer is, “I don’t know, I’ve dealt with this before, I should know better than to keep answering what are basically the same questions over and over again, I should stop.”

I’m gonna stop.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming of hockey content. If you have an ask that doesn’t pertain to what I’ve been spamming your dash with for the last 12 to 16 hours, feel free to ask, anything else regarding last night’s game, feel free to look at the last 10 or so posts about that tag and statistics, I promise your answer is probably in there.

Alright, shake it off, as Tay Swift likes to say, and moving on.

My best friend is trying to kill me because I'm shipping Salphys. I'm hiding now bit she's chasing me *~*. What should I do and how to protect myself??? PS You're best Salphys artist in the world :3

Welp, but why should she kill ya because of shipping thing? XD  o.O;

Hey, when you watch a movie, read a comic, play a game you love the most, you’re given the freedom to do whatever you want, and you have the right to do any fan stuff you enjoy the most. We don’t live in Hitler’s ere.

I’ve had some similar incident before, it’s probably because they prefer to choose ‘canon’ (So they can become the part of group? Be easily accepted? Or for their good sake?) and think it should be “respected” but that’s overly silly. Toby Fox gave us the opportunity to expend our imagination, share lots of love and be inspired to do something productive, or pass fun-stuff to our next generation. Plus Toby Fox NEVER demanded anyone. But when comes to shipping characters like that, or accidental / crack ships, I simply don’t understand why people tend to overreact like that? lol I mean it’s not that hard to ignore or keep this for themselves but they let it slip and intoxicate this wonderful fandom without thinking in the first place, huh? Sad!

I’ve had enough people spamming me with “WITH WHO YOU SHIP?!?!?!”. Not very civilizing, yanno, right? If there’s two best ships you love the most but you’re forced to choose? Why shouldn’t we have them equal? Any argument will only make you hate the same thing and it’s not cool at all. >_<;

Forgive me if I don’t have best tips but perhaps you should try to talk with your friend that fighting over who’s being shipped is not okay. Starting a war is not okay either. When you mentioned “chasing” hopefully you’re referring to the internet and not outside. o.O; 

Last of all, it’s okay if your friend dislikes your favorite ship, but….. You know all characters, random ships and game are nothing but fiction. So, despite having the different preferences, she shouldn’t hate you in person for liking something like that. XD lol

So there’s this awful Susano in a Joust match I played.

Fucker fed over and over. Like REALLY, running RIGHT INTO THE ENEMY, with NO REGARD FOR HIS SAFETY. Despite him dying like a fuck ton of times, HE NEVER FUCKING LEARNED. He kept doing the same thing over and over. I got so fucking miffed that I had to just say something.

First of all… he mocks my goddamn K/D ratio…

…when HIS is WORSE.

…and then…

“afk”

Even though I threw down my ultimate it many teamfights in a futile attempt to aid my allies.

Even though I keep spamming my nuke despite it missing just for the sake of actually TRYING TO DO SOMETHING.

And this fuckface uses that of all things to insult me. That I’m afk. K.

Apparently NOT playing for one year means that you forget that this game is a fighting game and one of your goals is to kill people, and you yourself should not be killed.

Note this cunt wasn’t simply just bad. He was REALLY JUST.. RUNNING RIGHT INTO THE ENEMY AND DYING. And then NOT learning from his lesson and doing the same thing.

And to those who don’t play Smite, Susano right there bought TWO defensive items… and only has two MINOR offensive items… even though Susano is a fucking offensive character, meanwhile I was playing Isis, a magical nuker/support.

…so yeah. I’m so done.

(I pulled this outta the orignal reply because I’ve been meaning to make this a post. Below is some unedited thought from about a month ago? June-ish?)

The first thing that made me start thinking that maybe Warren wasn’t quiet the nice nerd boy he presented was the “Sensitive means you won’t be having sex with me’ line. It comes out of nowhere, is inappropriate, and gives Max slight distress. He is being very direct with what he wants out of a relationship with her.

After that, his actions were a bit colored for me. Yes, he takes a punch but then he keeps talking about it. It isn’t ‘yo i got a black eye from that fight’ it is ‘hey, i got this black eye. because of you. see how great I am? I got a black eye’. He is proud of it in a way that suggests he knows he can use it to score points, as it were. He tries to appoint himself Max’s personal hero and we have seen no suggestion she wants or is okay with that.

(Putting this here because I forgot to talk about it until I was almost done, while it is not cool Warren is hanging around the building to corner Max and force her into talking with him, I can’t say if he was trying to spy in her window)

As we go, he acts increasingly entitled to Max’s time, using that fight as the reason. He says Max owes him one when it is Max’s decision if she owes him one. While she does say this, he acts like ‘Of course you owe me one’, as it was evident, like she had no other option. Heck he even says nearly that exact line, saying that because he took a hit he owes her that date. Sorry hang-out, Warren seem to do the Schrodinger Romance thing where he sets up date-like situations where he can say ‘no its just a hang-out’ if challenged negatively on if it is a date or not.

When you say no to the drive-in he does get somewhat pissy. His tone isn’t sad, it’s angry. While the words ‘be a damned dirty ape’, are referencing the movie, his tone is angry. He says it quickly, not giving Max any time to respond. He then makes somewhat a issue over the fact he has to invite Brooke now (of whom he already had arranged to see the movie with, as choosing Yes will have him canceling with her)

So, right at the start of episode 2, we have seen Warren trying to use getting beat up, trying to use guilt tactics, and trying to use jealousy to make Max want to date him. I don’t like that and it is not okay.

When we get to episode 3, we see that Warren does not want to take No for an answer. He brings up the drive-in again when Max calls, even though she is clearly in an unusual situation. Heck, it just occurred to me he might have brought it up again because she called for help, trying to leverage his ‘im a nice guy who helps’ to get her to say yes after all. I’ll have to think more on that later. (Also thought of this before posting, his tone must have been somewhat annoyed or angry again as Max says ‘Please don’t hate me’ in response. Something he said or the way he said it triggered this)

Anyways, even after the second no. Warren spams Max with txts trying to get her to go. He doesn’t accept the no, he doesn’t respect her choice in the matter. This is where that whole Romcom thing comes from. In your average Romcom, all a guy needs to do is ‘be nice and persistent to wear the girl down’. It is unhealthy and sets up unpleasant situations for real life. Max isn’t following the script. He ‘saved’ her, she should be all over him. She isn’t, so he keeps hammering what should happen.

And if you say yes, he brings it up during the call. Okay, this I can accept. He is excited. But he still spams Max with txts and again, and they border on not cool. He again does the guilt thing of ‘you can’t back out now’ and then implies he had to get into a fight for the tickets. I’m like, really? He is trying to use the same thing as before, a fight, to endear Max to him.

Warren found that being a geek guy with similar interests did not make Max want to date him. If the fight is possibly what did it, he is going to try and play that up more, since in his mind that is the Warren that Max would like.

This is pretty much all I can think of right now, I feel like I’ve said more across my posts about Warren. He seems to use different tactics to try and get Max to date him, not accepting she does not want to, which Max tries to imply to let him down gently and without embarrassment.

I guess another influence on my opinion is Max herself. She says in her journal is does not want him hitting on her and does actions to make sure she isn’t giving the impression she would want to date him.

This is getting seriously annoying.

Guys. This is Chris Colfer tag. Not Klaine. Not CrissColfer and definitely not Darren Criss. Why do I have to see someone who is not Chris every single time I go into Chris Colfer tag? Let me tell you: NO REASON.

Klaine is not Chris. Klaine is the ship name of two FICTIONAL characters. Chris Colfer is a REAL person. If you really want to tag someone, go tag Kurt Hummel and Blaine Anderson. Cause at least tagging them makes sense.

There is no such thing as CrissColfer. (I mean the romantic side of it.) I don’t know why you keep insisting it’s real and constantly spamming Chris’ and Darren’s tag with this thing which is also not real. If you want to ship them romantically, go to CrissColfer tag.

I know some of you will say I should block it if I don’t want to see it. But I shouldn’t have to. Because all I ask is for you to stop spamming the tags that belongs to REAL persons with FICTIONAL stuff. That’s it.

Chris Colfer is not Klaine. Chris Colfer is not CrissColfer. Chris Colfer is not Darren Criss. Same goes for Darren as well.

anonymous asked:

Okay but anti-blackness has led to so many murders. Rapmon is adding to a system that has cost so many black folks their lives. By promoting anti-black beliefs, you are making the lives of black people a thousand times harder, especially when you're a public figure. It might as well be as bad as murder IMO. You're not holding the gun, but you're backing a system (anti-blackness) that has killed and will continue to do so.

This answer is super long bc we’ve gotten a lot of messages about the subject and it’s starting to get out of hand and at this point I kinda don’t want to talk about this too much anymore/repeat the same things and stuff. This is at least how I feel about it, and I’m not really gonna answer too much after this. I mean, I reserve the right to answer something if I think it’s worth it to do ofc, but the opposite is also true. Aite let’s go.

I don’t mean to sound insulting or rude, but I want to stress that all of admins are acutely aware of this. We have a lot of messages right now echoing things that we have expressed at length before as well. We completely agree in this sense, and we all know what anti-blackness is. Specifically though, Admin Nia really does too. And I’m not saying this from the perspective of someone scrolling on tumblr and reading a blog. I’m saying this as someone who has shared a living space with her for a fairly long time, and who has known her for even longer. Seriously, we routinely spend hours upon hours discussing these things and related issues just because we care about them that much and genuinely believe that they’re important to understand with nuance. 

That being said, Admin Nia’s point seems to be the same one that many other sj tumblr users have tried to echo before. I’m sure you guys have seen those text posts with 10k+ notes talking about how it’s important to remember that you weren’t always this amazing beacon of woke-ness and that everyone of us is still very much problematic in ways we more than likely don’t want to address? Just like we all once had some pretty shitty beliefs and/or behaviors before that for sure for sure added to horrible systems just as RM’s past behaviors have done, other people can be or could have been the same way. This doesn’t excuse those behaviors (and we’ve never excused RM’s lol) but it does put their complexity and potential for development as human beings in perspective. 

My best example of what she means is the very existence of problematic favs to begin with. It’s a common staple on tumblr at this point. There’s a good chance that even the most woke person you follow in fandom has at least one problematic fav. Sure they’re able to critique and call out this person’s behavior, and even be stern towards them/drag them when they need to, but at the end of the day, they also are able to access the other parts of that person’s being, and furthermore determine if they think that person still has potential, or if their positive qualities are still worth appreciating. 

If we couldn’t do this, none of yall would have trash favs. If we couldn’t see all of a person’s qualities (NOT ignore or downplay the bad because that’s shitty and completely destroys the process of education and personal growth), we literally wouldn’t be able to like or appreciate any idol or even a person in our own lives who has fucked up or hasn’t gotten to where we are (and still have to go) in terms of our understanding of the systems around us. I want to stress that last part: we do this same thing all the time with people we know irl. I know so many people who have said anti-black things, or homophobic things, or sexist things, or colorist things, but I probably wouldn’t reduce their entire being to those statements on the whole, or if I did, bc I know them irl, I would still probably interact with them on other terms. 

Furthermore, off the top of my head, if we couldn’t do this, none of yall could stan:

  • Zico
  • Chanyeol
  • Kai 
  • Baekhyun
  • Lay
  • Luhan
  • Suho
  • Ok actually everyone in EXO lbr
  • Taemin
  • Key 
  • Jonghyun
  • Minho
  • Onew
  • G-Dragon (and I mean none of y’all)
  • Daesung
  • Taeyang
  • Seungri
  • LE
  • Taeyeon
  • Doojoon
  • Kikwang
  • Yesung
  • Leeteuk
  • Eunhyuk
  • Junho
  • Yongguk
  • IU
  • Krystal
  • Amber
  • Luna
  • Wendy
  • Hanbin 
  • Those dudes in Seventeen involved in the bad stuff bc I was still on break when it happened
  • literally every other idol

bonus: add everyone you’ve ever seen on a show who at least laughed at one of these jokes, or black impressions, or anything like that. that’s right, not just the people who said the stuff, but those who encouraged it with laughter as well

bonus pt. 2: also add any idol who’s ever basically pulled a “no homo” on a variety show. or who have laughed when another idol did one.

to take it outside of kpop: you couldn’t even stan the holy trinity, Rihanna, Nicki, or Beyonce (see that super problematic blackface photoshoot from a while ago).

My point is that literally all of those people have fucked up in some way shape or form, but I have seen socially conscious black fans and non-black poc fans alike manage to both critique their problematic behavior as well as support them or at least, agree to see the other parts of their being too (and I don’t mean they see the other parts just to derail the conversation, but just in general. like they can critique them, but if they see some funny vine or something months later, they can also laugh at it or whatever). That is what me, Admin Nia, Admin Kim probably and damn near everyone else in the fandom does at some point or another. Y’all don’t have to do this for all offenses ofc, who you choose to still deal with is all up to you and your personal taste, but it’s kinda ridic to insult someone for having different personal taste, standards or a different threshold for who they will still accept post-call out and who they won’t.

There’s also just differences in interpretation of these concepts. I don’t want to speak for Nia, but it seems to be that to her, calling someone anti-black, and not the specific action or their mindset on a particular issue, is like saying that their entire being is wholely anti-black, or in other words, that on the whole, that person is bothered with, disrespects, or at least has an ingrained hatred for black people and/or culture. Like say, to the extent of a clansman or a someone’s anti-black white mom or something. RM’s entire being doesn’t seem to fit that bill to her. Now, you can disagree obv, as your criteria for calling a person anti-black can be different, but that distinction seems to be more a difference in semantics and personal understanding than anything else. Please don’t think that she doesn’t understand the damage done by anti-blackness and furthermore by Rap Monster or anyone else’s shitty behavior. 

And honestly, if you still hate what she said or that kind of perspective on what it means to be anti-black vs to do or say anti-black things (or if you even think there’s a difference), maybe consider putting it on your blog? It’s a lot to be dragged constantly or at least have your intelligence and understanding of the world questioned or insulted because you have a problematic fav that somebody else is probably gonna hate no matter what (even tho we all do!!), or because your understanding of certain concepts as far as systematic oppression is concerned is different. It’s a lot, and it keeps happening, and it’s part of what makes what we do reeeeeeeally hard. Like literally you’re putting her on trial for doing the same thing we all do haha. Idk man. And it’s not even like you have to agree with her or us at all lol. It’s so fine and ok for you to disagree with our personal views, in fact we welcome it, do you. But don’t spam us with why you think we’re dumb or ignorant or whatever and expect us to love it lol.

This essay was wild. Why did I write all this. Whatever lol, I hope it makes sense.

tracks to tag/use;

in case you missed it sebastianstanners made a post about this already over here, but i added a new thing also. so if you want to keep in track with all sebastian things (news, interviews, tweets, etc) and edits, or if you want me to reblog them, then i’ll be using these two tags:

mostly so we don’t have to see reposts, weheartit spams, the same text posts over and over, people comparing bucky to loki who clearly didn’t get the movie at all, etc. so, yeah. feel free to use them, track them, post all the news, old things too i guess we can cheat a little in there shh, edits, gifsets, aus, masterposts, audio of interviews, new fan pictures, all kinds of things that we normally wouldn’t be able to find in seb’s tag now because it’s flooded with a bunch of text posts. if you want to reblog this so more people would be aware, that would be awesome. anyway, that’s all. thanks darlings!

Quick note: a brief apology to some very nice folks with kind words in my inbox, as well as some with very frequently asked questions; the number of messages i have on this blog was….honestly very overwhelming to me, so I deleted a lot of asks featuring things that are very commonly asked or just general kind words. I’ll be posting an abridged version of the FAQ at the end of bulk answer posts from now on, to help those on mobile who can’t see the FAQ, and as for those who sent in kind things: I read and appreciate every single thing sent in! I can’t address them all directly anymore, or I’ll spam folks’ dashes, and I can really only answer the same questions so many times before i get very drained on that topic. But I do nonetheless appreciate that people are really enjoying this comic as much as you all are! 

For now, a couple of the most common ones: 

1. There is no update schedule, I’m afraid. This story’s become very personally important to me, and if I don’t keep it as something I do by choice rather than obligation, I’ll burn out on it, maybe even end up hating it. Please be patient with me! 

2. The full details of Sans’s absence will eventually be revealed, but so far all that has been confirmed is that he is indeed dead and has been for about six months. He had not yet spoken with Toriel through the door when he died.
