and make posts thanking every new follower i got

Heya guys.

So, on July 30th 2016, I started this blog and didn’t really expect anything to come of it. I mean, who actually makes friends on the internet? But after a ridiculous number of, in retrospect awful quality posts, I finally got my first few followers (@hot-hook, @randomnnerd, @suicidal-masterpiece, @just-a-touch-of-sass-and-fandoms, @rachelbrady2 and @freedominwriting). I remember staying up until ridiculous times every night and reloading my follower page, grinning every time a saw a new name. And at the time, I’ll admit, things were really shitty, but it was nice to have a hobby.

At some point (I think I was around 100 followers), my blog finally got a boost. I remember waking up to 70 more followers and THREE ASKS. THREE ASKS! To me, that was the height of popularity, so I kept going. By the time September rolled in, I was at 1000 followers and 500 posts, and things sped up. I got out 70 posts every night, sleeping less and less but smiling more and more because for once, you know, I wasn’t alone. And it was awesome.

By November I was at 5000 followers and I was working two jobs, juggling bills and rent and mental health issues that weren’t the easiest thing to deal with. But look! You guys were still there for me! And by the end of November I decided to take a break, and was shocked that nobody seemed to blame me for it. By the time I came back, I was nearing 8000 followers and three asks seemed measly compared to the stuff I had to wade through but I loved every second of it anyway. 

In conclusion? Tumblr is, for me anyway, no longer just a hobby. It’s a genuine love and motivation, and you guys help me keep going every day. This Christmas I spent alone - but I sat on the kitchen floor with my laptop and a mug of pot noodles and talked to you and it was honestly one of the best Christmases I’ve ever had. 

Thank you for everything, you guys. 2017 is a new year, with new posts and friends and episodes and opportunities, and I’m ecstatic that you all stuck around to dive into the new year with me. 

Eternal hugs, have a great day people, I love you <3

Starter Call!

// So, I’ve gained a TON of new followers since my last starter call. Today I’ve managed to nail out almost every reply that I’ve needed. I think I’ve got about half a dozen left and one starter to make. So, if I don’t have a thread with you already please like this post and I’ll make a starter for you! Alternatively, even if we have a thread, if you’ve got any plot ideas feel free to drop a message and I’ll be happy to make another thread with you! Thanks folks! //

I was going back and forth about making a post (especially when I’ve been so tired and haven’t made IR posts recently, sorry!  just posting silly small things either editing old posts or thanking people) because I was getting exasperated by anti-IR followers trying to follow me almost every day that now gaining new followers, which used to be exciting and fun, is now just “ok are you a porn/spam blog or an anti-IR?”

At first I thought it was better to ignore it and not let them see that they got to me, which they haven’t overall since I’m not going to stop shipping IR and I’m not at all deterred from making IR posts, but I have to admit they are being rather annoying.  The ones following me hasn’t done anything actively and some anti-IRs have probably slipped through the cracks in my purging, but it’s still obvious there is nothing but ill intentions in their reasons to follow an obviously exclusive IR blog. Why else would they be following my blog? (If you’re a multishipper I have to say I haven’t  seen evidence supporting IR on your blogs so apologies if you’re blocked but you obviously made me uncomfortable enough).

And if these blogs are going so far as to hide they are anti-IR or in fact made additional blogs just to stalk IR blogs I have to say:

They are pathetic.
You are pathetic.

I try to be upbeat and positive and try my best not to cross over the lines of civility.  I basically stay in my camp and if I have criticisms or gripes I try to leave it either untagged or tag it as anti (posts older than a year might be an exception because I was still new to tumblr, I still am figuring things out tbh lol).  I didn’t try to start fights or participate in the “war” actively in the sense of fighting with others on it, but I’ll defend my OTP to the last if people start things with me.

But really the bottom line comes to this to the anti-IR blogs stalking IR fans:

What in the world are [you] doing??

They tote around 686 as their ultimate and canonical evidence.  They try to rub in our faces that it’s over, they won, they were right, we were wrong, we didn’t read the manga right, they knew it was endgame, etc.  I have so many criticisms that I won’t get into here, but let’s be honest.  They weren’t endgame, there is 600+ chapters! color spreads! movies! interviews!, and other works to counter that claim.  The last arc was terribly slow and awful in pacing, plot holes were left gaping open and 686 was nothing but a joke that a majority of fans, shippers and non-shippers alike, do not accept and treat it as useless garbage.  

Whether they think they “won” or not, they sure aren’t acting as if they had “won.”  If we, IR, had “won” in this silly “war,” do you know what I would and wouldn’t be doing?

I wouldn’t be trying to find anti-IR blogs to stalk.  I couldn’t give two shits about your underdeveloped and extremely unhealthy, toxic couples.  They literally make me sick so why would I bother trying to seek them out and willing expose myself to something I clearly despise?  Am I going to sit in raw sewage that will make me gag and vomit while trying to eat lunch?  No, I wouldn’t force myself to be near or do something disgusting when I could avoid it altogether!  Why do I need that negative garbage in my life??
I would stay out of their tag and not bother with them as long as they stayed civil and stayed away from me, otherwise, immediately blocking because I do not want to waste my precious time and energy on something that is worthless to me.
I would be celebrating IR without abandon by following IR blogs, reblogging, liking, and creating my own posts to share and support the community focused around our love for IR!
I would be thanking and appreciating all the wonderful fans being supportive of each other on the community while being so kind to share their works, beliefs, and love of IR that brought us together.

I apologize that this post has a definitively different tone compared to my other ones, to be honest I am actually quite short-tempered, cynical and grumpy 24/7 but I try to be more positive and upbeat because negativity brings out only more negativity, but I’m sorry I just had to get this off my chest!

But really I apologize to be so crude but can these stalkers please GTFO. Yes, I’ll block you.  I’ll ignore you.  I don’t need you on my blog, thank you very much.  One day I will not care but today is not that day.  Today I don’t need this and I doubt I ever will but until I can ignore it without effort I’ll help myself do it more efficiently by blocking your existence from my notice, thank you very much!

In conclusion, if IR had become canon and we “won,” I wouldn’t give a flying fuck about any detractors and anti fans who supported opposing couples, let alone go out of my way to stalk them just to harass them or mock them because it
Is
A
Waste
Of
Time.

All things considered in my list of things that I would and wouldn’t do, I have to say since a lot of the IR community is basically doing the above by ignoring anti-IR fans and not stalking them while continuing to support each other and share their love for IR in likes, reblogs, edits, posts with fan art, fan fics, and any other creations in our community, I think it’s easy to see who really “won,” don’t you think?

Kubo threw away everything and wasted his time and our own.  He’s ruined his future but he doesn’t have to ruin ours.

I can’t even fathom the idea that @taylorswift followed me a year ago. How crazy is that. I got to travel across the country, meeting new friends and experiencing the 1989 Tour several times, including from the front row. I got to MEET TAYLOR for the second time in my life and it makes me smile every single day. Probably the biggest accomplishment I have made in the year since Taylor followed me is that I moved across the country to New York alone. And I am very proud of my little apartment in Manhattan with the roof view you see here!

Thank you @taylorswift for deciding to follow my blog a year ago, and to like my posts (which are sometimes really weird), and to invite Bella and I to meet you, just for everything that contributed to where I am today.  Thank you so much.

ASTRO STANS READ BELOW:

So I was thinking about making a master list of blogs to make it easier for people looking to follow astro stans, I’ve instead decided to make a page on my blog so that I can edit it when new blogs emerge, someone changes URL or to delete blogs that have become inactive.

PLEASE LIKE OR REBLOG THIS IF YOU POST PRIMARILY ASTRO ON YOUR BLOG.

The reason I’m asking for this specifically is because people will refer to the page when they want to follow astro blogs so it wouldn’t be fair for me to link them to multifandom blogs that only post astro every now and then.

I’ve already got most blogs sorted out but this is just incase I miss out on anyone?

If I already follow you and you’re an astro blog please still reblog to make this easier for me and to get the word out for people who don’t search tags.

Thanks a lot, and happy new year guys!
