and now i'm so involved

  • BBC Three: We're going to make #ClassDW the official hashtag for this show but do an abysmal job promoting it while creating confusion by tweeting from a bbcClass twitter handle.
  • Tumblr: Organically settles on "bbc class" as a the hashtag for the show.
  • BBC America, months later: Let's still make try to make #ClassDW a thing.

no offense guys but think about this for a second:

Kindergarten teacher Eric Bittle.

Kindergarten teacher Mr Bittle who is bright and energetic and loves children and taking care of “his kids”.

Kindergarten teacher Mr Bittle who calls his kids “Mr Bittle’s Bumblebees” and has a sign on his door that says “Welcome to the honey comb! We are busy bees but please come in!”

Kindergarten teacher Mr Bittle who has his friends volunteering in his classroom on a rotating weekly basis.

Kindergarten teacher Mr Bittle whose classroom is painted yellow and has red gingham curtains with pies on the borders.

Kindergarten teacher Mr Bittle who celebrates the 100th day of school by taking his bumblebees to meet the Falcs and learn to skate.

Kindergarten teacher Mr Bittle who talks about hockey a lot and who gives out “penalties” at the table next to his desk when someone needs a moment to cool down. “Joey you look upset. Here bud, do you need two minutes?” “Layla we have to share crayons with our friends! Come take two to remember that!” “Ben no throwing cars, kiddo! How about you take two?”

Kindergarten teacher Mr Bittle whose classroom always smells like fresh baked bread and who celebrates Friday with pie.

Kindergarten teacher Mr Bittle who sings and dances with his students and who joins in when his kids greet Jack with a rousing rendition of “The Hockey Song” when he come into for show and tell. Mr Bittle who brings Jack in after they watch inside out because he offers to talk about feelings to the little ones. Mr Bittle who is so touched by this that he brings in tiny maple apple pie bites for the class and for Jack because his husband is swawesome.

Kindergarten teacher Eric Bittle who teaches skating lessons for his kids in return for parents volunteering with classroom activities.

Kindergarten teacher Eric Bittle who takes his kids on a field trip to the high school home ec class so his kids can bake cupcakes and the high schoolers get some experience with the small ones.

Kindergarten teacher Eric Bittle who uses kindness to teach those early life lessons, who bakes cupcakes for birthdays and class parties and drags his hubby to chaperone field trips to the zoo and the beach and the aquarium.

Kindergarten teacher Eric Bittle who gets with the Falcs every year to get the kids and their families to a home game and give them “homework” of writing down as many jersey numbers as they can. Who spends the next Monday making each kid a paper jersey to hang up on the walls for art time.

Kindergarten teacher Eric Bittle who wears fun patterned bow ties on Wednesdays and can throw a football and play street hockey and fix the rip on one of the dress up clothes and teaches the little ones “the best mud pie recipe you’ll ever know. My moo maw taught me this y'all.” And then proceeds to get into the dirt to teach about bugs and worms and plants.

Kindergarten teacher Eric Bittle who cries on the last day of school during Kindergarten graduation because he loves his kids.
Kindergarten teacher Eric Bittle who cries and then smiles because year after year that he teaches, the back of the room at graduation is a mix of former Samwell hockey players and current Falcs who wear their game day best and hand out diplomas and fix tiny hats and curls and wipe away tears.

Just kindergarten teacher Eric Bittle who loves getting to build these foundations for his little ones and enjoys taking care of two dozen tiny people during their first year of school. Who loves seeing his kids when they come back to visit. Who encourages them to volunteer their time in his classroom when they get to high school.

Just kindergarten teacher Eric Bittle who has so much love to give the world, so he gives it by teaching tiny ones.

all the ‘true love’s crit’ posts that i’ve seen have forgotten one of the most important true love’s crits in critical role, grog/nat 20 intelligence or perception check on someone else’s question

which happens whenever someone asks if they can do an intelligence/perception check and travis jokingly asks if he can do one too, and then the person who asked initially rolls like a four and travis gets a nat 20

and so grog gets to be the one who remembers/notices something important, and the rest of the group is proud of him and travis/grog gets all puffed up and smiley and he’s so proud of himself for confirming that he’s smart

I can’t stop thinking about ‘it’s quite surreal’, and 'amazing, yeah. This is incredible, isn’t it?’ Because that’s how Sam and Anthony were last year. And they lost it so fast because people are awful.

With Theo and Samuel we have two young men, at the start of their career, and I just think that as a fandom we should be respectful of them and not invasive or over-excitable or rude or any of the other countless things we could do to them.

They’re human beings, doing a job that should probably be the most amazing, fun job in the world. And it looks like they’re going to be spectacular at it. But can we remember that they are just that? Human beings doing a job. They’re not toys. They’re not play things. They’re not characters. They’re not for us to speculate over or ship. They’re people with lives and families and friendships.

So can we please be kind to them and show them we care about them and value them, and not drive them away and make them jaded? Let them have this amazing experience without us ruining it for them.

They’re so young. And they deserve to enjoy themselves and keep the wonder we saw in the video today. Is that so much to ask? Can people please be nice?

I didn’t see this process play out from the beginning last time, but I know it’s coming this time and it’s horrible. It’s beginning already, and I hate everything about it.

I just saw Homecoming… I’m in love.

you know it’s so  funny to me, I started dgm around the time the Alma arc started in the manga, i’ve been around ever since, and if you would have asked me back then, I wouldn’t have thought Johnny would have become the salvation of us all, and yet here we are.

anonymous asked:

To be honest I don't think I'd want any ship to become canon in voltron because I think if would really tear this fandom apart. Can you imagine how bitter some people would become and how much more discourse there would be. I mean I love klance but I'm also a multishipper and have other pairings that I love just as much.

I personally wouldn’t mind any ships to become canon. But again, I see fandom as something separate from canon and nothing that happens in canon can take away the fun I have with the characters here in fandom. I’d keep doing what I am doing now either way. The discourse would probably increase, yeah - but, as weird as that might sound, I’m actually having a good time right now. I’m following the right people, there are days where I don’t even notice that the discourse exists. Incredible, right? :P 

Should a ship become canon it might get harder to avoid the discourse but I firmly believe that it’s possible to keep enjoying this show through it all. This blog is and will stay a klance only blog and I will keep having fun with these characters. Ships in general shouldn’t be as big of a deal as the fandom makes them out to be so I’m just not gonna treat them that way. If needed, I’ll build my own little community with just my friends and me but like hell I’ll let discourse, ships, hate or any other fandom negativity ruin my fun :D I’m here for the show and the characters I fell in love with and that’s what I’ll stay here for <3 

you know i’m getting more and more suspicious about vic’s involvement in this whole sl because… it’s weird right? maybe not her need for a child and her determination to help rebecca (although personally i do find that a bit questionable given her previous hatred for the whites) but there are way bigger issues than that.

she took rebecca in despite the fact rebecca had all the money and support she could want from her family.

she’s gone with rebecca to the hospital and been a constant fixture throughout the pregnancy

she’s actively taken rebecca’s “side” over robert’s and pushed her brother into loving this child even when it wasn’t something he wanted

and more than anything, isn’t it just a little suspicious that victoria, a character who let’s face it doesn’t get many storylines and certainly none that centre totally on her, is now pushed to the forefront of a storyline that should really be about rebecca? i mean, vic’s had double the lines bex has had if not more, she’s been more involved than all the whites combined… isn’t it all just a little odd?

because it’s not like emmerdale view victoria as a popular character, so it’s not them appealing to the ga by shoving her in front of the screen. most of the time she’s a background character, there to add light-relief or a bit of romance with adam… but this is different. so why? why have her shoved into this plot which would have made much more sense without her? why continue to put her in scenes that she doesn’t really need to be involved in? and why now are we hearing that she’s going to be involved in the upcoming white sl with robert?

honestly there’s something suspect about the whole thing and i wouldn’t be in the least surprised if whatever twist is coming (and there will be a twist, i can feel it in my bones) ends up being as much to do with vic as it is to do with robert and rebecca

When people say they don’t see chemistry between Laxus and Mira

I’m too lazy right now to search other images to support this post, but… c’mon! I understand if you don’t ship them, that’s totally fine, but we’re still at the point where you don’t see there’s something between them? Really? 

It’s not fanservice. It’s obvious Mashima had a plan for them since like.. forever. Do I have to remember you the ending for the Laxus’ arc in the anime? When Mira is walking on the beach and she suddenly turns back and smiles so sweetly to someone.. who you think she’s looking at? And this was at the beginning of the anime. 

Now, Mashima doesn’t actually care that much about Mira or Laxus (I’ll be angry with him forever because of this) and you can clearly see it in different situations (Where’s Ivan? Why Mira seems to be less powerful than other characters? Who is Laxus’ mother? Where the Strauss siblings come from?). I’m the first one to admit that the manga is ending and I don’t have the development I wanted, but from here to say that they don’t have chemistry and you’ll feel sorry for the other shippers if they’ll become a couple.. there’s like an ocean, or a galaxy!

I’m tired of all these comments against Miraxus. I’m at a point where I really don’t care, because  everything said against them is pointless and if we, the terrible miraxus shippers, would say the same things against the other ships involving Laxus.. well, there would be a riot and thounsands of insults and people claiming that Miraxus shippers are omophobic and disgusting and bla bla bla

I don’t understand nor I won’t Frax/us or Lax/ana or Lax/lu or Mira/freed or whatever other ships involving Laxus and Mira to become canon. 

BUT I DON’T BOTHER YOU WITH MY USELESS OPINION IN YOUR TAGS.

I think Laxus is made for Mira, you think he’s made for someone else… what are we yelling about? It’s a sterile discussion. You have your opinion and I have mine, it’s my right. 

And to sum up: making Miraxus canon would never be fanservice, because it’s been hinted since the very beginning. You can accept it or just pretend it’s not true. Your decision. Just don’t bother me in the Miraxus tag. 

I just started writing up a post about that Taagnus head canon on mobile and fuuuuuck it got long, so I’m gonna rework it tomorrow and type it up on he computer so I can put it under a read more 😅

well this bit of writing research got unsettling fast…
