and this deserves a lot of reblogs

I thought this deserved its own post. 

A lot of promising blogs/art/stories/users get lost in the wayside. Not that it’s anyone’s fault necessarily! Just… maybe consider reblogging more posts for blogs getting on their feet? We’re a relatively small fandom - the tag isn’t flooded with hundreds of posts everyday - so we need to make do with what we have. Thanks!

Also, please go follow @ask-the-layton-detective-crew for adorable detective AU shenanigans. Also also, @ask-the-azran-family. I need more AUs where Claire and Aurora are alive and Desmond’s back and they’re a big happy family with Layton and Co.

submit links to your yoi stuff for me to reblog for ya!!

Just to say if you ever want a reblog for any YOI related content you’ve made, just hit me up! I’m happy to reblog any fanart, fic links, theory posts, whatever if ya’ll want some attention and it’s not offensive, anti, stolen, or reposted without permission!

I may not have a huge number of followers compared to some people (i mean it’s a lot to me either way lmao) but yeh if you feel your stuff is being overlooked in the fandom I’ll happily reblog it and try and get you a lil more attention <3 everyone deserves recognition for their work/content.

Because I feel like kids of color don’t hear it enough: domestic abuse is not a part of your culture. 

A lot of us were raised with the idea that “its normal for wives/children to get hit! it helps them learn– only white folk don’t get beaten when they misbehave”. That’s not true, white people aren’t the only ones who deserve a safe and abuse free environment. Black and brown people can and do have loving families. 

If you’re in a situation where you are enduring abuse and people use your culture to justify it, I want you to know that what they’re telling you are lies.

It may have been months since I last listened to the Tuck Everlasting cast recording but you can bet your money that if I hear the tempo pick up in “Live Like This” I will not hesitate to start singing “OFF THE TRAIN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE—”

Can All Parents Do This For Me

Listen to your kids. I’m not kidding, listen to them. It’ll do you so much in the long run, because think of it like this. Your kids don’t instinctively avoid you, they don’t, I can bet all your kids when they were younger told you all about their day at school, the friends they made, people who rubbed them the wrong way et cetera. Although, when you stop listening to them, you stop getting all this. You start missing out on well, a lot. When you start using your position as a parent to do things like; Look through your child’s things just because, yell at them for little things and repeatedly tell them they have to listen because you’re the adult, make it seem as if they don’t have problems, you are killing that kid. You may not be grabbing a knife, but look at it like this, to look at your parents, the people who keep you safe and they blame everything on you, even their mistakes, you might as well have stabbed them. Cos it hurts like hell. Don’t accuse your children of things you don’t have solid proof of them doing, because at some point, they’ll go fuck it and do it because you already think they do. Don’t kill that light inside your child because ‘you’re the adult’, your kid deserves just as much respect. I don’t care if you’re a good bible fairing Christian because at some point the words that say to respect your parents stop, especially at abuse. I don’t care if you’ve never supported the LGBT cause in your life, don’t take that out on your kid because they obviously trust you enough to tell you about the inner turmoil they’re feeling. Raise your kids better than you were, because it may seem like something arrogant, but they will most likely follow in the path you take when they raise their own kids, and it becomes a cycle. A cycle of physical or emotional abuse and no one deserves that, especially not a kid. Listen to them, please, because you’ll find out a lot more about them then you think.

My dear lgbt+ kids, 

Tumblr is full of people who want to be good people. They want to fight hate. They don’t want to be problematic in any way. And that’s great! 

Just sometimes, sadly, trying very hard to not be problematic is..well, problematic in itself. 

Our focus should not be on being visibly great people. A certain desire for other people to see how great we are is natural and human. (It’s even beneficial as seeing someone being a kind person will inspire more people to be kind!)

It starts to turn ugly when being kind is not about kindness at all anymore and only about other people seeing how much better! kinder! purer! they are than anyone else. 

You’ll come across those people in lgbt+ spaces (especially online) a lot. 

They are the ones who send you messages accusing you of being homophobic because you reblogged a “Boys deserve positivity, too” post and didn’t specify you only meant gay boys because obviously saying something positive about straight boys is offensive and problematic and awful and oh my gosh, why do you hate gay boys?? You should be ashamed of yourself! 

(Sadly, how much nonsense their accusations are is not always as obvious as in this slightly exaggerated example.) 

It often seems like they actually do not care about making the world a better place. They just want to look better than the world. 

Of course it is easy to get sucked into that when you just start out with your (lgbt+) activism. The thought “I am a good person” feels rewarding and we human beings thrive with rewards. I can’t really blame them for their desire to attack everyone and everything that could potentially be problematic  - but I do want to point out that blindly attacking each other will never save the world. 

And I want to give you, especially when you are young and/or new to lgbt+ (online) spaces a piece of advice: Not every accusation is worth a reply. If someone calls you out, think about what they said and your own behavior, do apologize and change (your choice of words etc) if necessary - but keep in mind that sometimes it’ll be necessary and sometimes it won’t. Sometimes the accusation will be completely baseless, random or a misunderstanding on their part. If you feel like the person just wants to start a fight, the best reply is silence. 

Online discussions can be great. Most online fights are not worth your time. 

With all my love, 

Your Tumblr Mom 

Still Active Swifties

Since @taylorswift​ decided to take a well deserved break from tumblr, I know a lot of other people have left as well. This follow train is for all of the still active swifties! So reblog if you’re still active, follow those who have already reblogged it, and maybe make some new friendships!

Stay cute, x0x0

But the opening of teen wolf really shows that Theo has no one. Literally no one. His parents are dead, his sister is still dead, his fake parents left town, he has no pack. He didn’t exactly make any friends. Him sleeping in his truck proves that. He has no one to turn to for help. It makes me really sad. He’s been through so much, yeah he did a lot of shit but he doesn’t deserve this. The fact that Theo was going to call scott, despite everything he did to him, shows how desperate he is for help.

Things I’d like to see on Booklr
  • Reviews for backlist books. I don’t care if you’re reading something old for the first time. You just read Sabriel by Garth Nix? Or the Lumatere Chronicles by Melina Marchetta?  Or maybe Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz? DO A REVIEW FOR IT! Maybe it’s not the newest and hottest book right now, but there are so many older novels to discover and reviews help that!
  • Buzz for non-YA novels. I love the Young Adult genre/age group. But there’s a TON of books that aren’t Young Adult that would be fun to discuss and share! Occasionally we get non-YA books that get popular because of their appeal to the YA audience (The Night Circus, Shades of Magic, Song of Achilles, etc) but I wanna hear about more! Tell me about the mystery you’re reading, the poetry book you picked up, the old sci-fi series you found on sale! There’s a lot of books out there! If YA isn’t your thing, no worries, I still want to see blogs and posts for books outside that area!
  • Support Reviews. I’m just as guilty of this. I don’t tend to reblog or like reviews, even though I constantly skim, read, and look at what bloggers have to say. Reviews are essential to book blogging in general and great for the book industry! We should reblog and comment on them more! Show reviews your support, that you’re out there reading what they have to say, let them know if you pick up the book or not, share the review so others see it and maybe discover their next favorite book!
  • Discussion Posts. I know that some say that longer posts just don’t work on tumblr, but I love seeing discussion posts and reviews on booklr! Wordpress blogs are more likely to have discussion posts or just longer posts about books and stuff in the community, but I would love to see this stuff on here to. The fun thing about tumblr is it’s a very versatile blogging platform, from just reblogging to adding your own content into the community. Maybe we’ve all skipped over a long post because “TL;DR” but I think that reblogs and comments are perfect for talking and adding to discussion posts, so why don’t we all utilize it more?
  • Support non-English Readers! Every time I see a photo of a book that’s not in English, I notice that it has significantly fewer notes than of pictures of that book in English. I’m not sure what’s up with that? A lot of times you can recognize the book because the covers are the same, it just happens to have the title in Russian or Spanish or whatever language. Lots of people don’t read in English and that’s GREAT! There’s a lot of languages out there and those who read in their native language deserve support for their blog too! (Obviously)
  • REBLOG REBLOG REBLOG. bookavid used to talk about this sometimes, but likes aren’t always great for bloggers. I put a LOT of love and work into my blog and so does everyone else in the community. We work hard on posts, reviews, and photos! Reblog them if you like them! That lets us know you like what we’re doing and more people see it and we feel validated for our hard work. It’s always depressing when I post something and it gets 10 likes so I post it again and wonder if people don’t like it? Is it worth putting the work into if no one sees it or seems to care? I know some people try to stick to the theme of their blog but when you can, support bloggers and reblog instead of just liking it and scrolling on!

I know booklr has felt dead recently, but I’m not giving up until you pry this blog from my cold dead hands! Reach out, talk to people, let me know if you want me to check out your blog, talk to me about books, talk to other people about books, make posts even if you feel your blog is small and unimportant (it’s not, fyi). I love this community and I want to see it thriving again! I want to talk to you guys, hear your thoughts, get recommendations, and make friends

-Dakota

P.S. What do you want to see more of on booklr?? Comment, reblog, message me, let me know 😄

Okay, so here’s a really long post in which I screenshot a bunch of reddie content from the novel, and I think I got most of it.

Sorry this took so long, but rereading IT had me super emotional, it was hard to get through. 

Also, @eddiekasp I would have added this onto your original post, but it’s super long, and you mentioned a lot of this, so I’m just gonna tag you!

Some of this is likely way over-analyzed, but enjoy anyway: 

So that’s immensely deep and quaintly romantic. 

What a fucking dork. Honestly, what a shameless flirt.

MOVING ON

Okay, so, hanging out above the garage, telling Eddie about his dreams, Eddie supporting him and admiring him even if Richie’s skills are clearly not developed yet, and Eddies sorta-pov using the words “enchanting” and “charm” to describe Richie. 

Shameless. 

More like “Oh my god, he’s gorgeous, oh, shit, Bill’s looking, what the fuck am I doing, it’s just Richie…” 

MOVING. ON. 

Not that Richie wouldn’t have stepped forward to admit that he helped with the dam, but I find it intriguing that he does this right after watching Eddie squirm, standing next to him and trying to think of a way to talk them out of trouble. It comes off as something protective, specifically toward Eddie to me.

Antsy over Eddie potentially getting in trouble and defensively blurting shit to take the attention off of him? Maybe.

Do I even have to say anything about this one? 

Richie suddenly remembering how he used to tease Eddie when they were kids.

Eddie suddenly remembering how Richie’s teasing made him super flustered when they were kids. Richie trying to comfort Eddie.

RIGHT after Eddie freaks out about Richie teasing him, he starts giggling over fucking beep-beeping Richie. 

Just. More flirting as adults, plus some throwback.

(kids again) Speaks for itself.

Eddie’s adorable, and I feel like it’s not coincidental that they all start gushing over how much they love each other after Richie and Eddie bicker a little bit.
_


(Sorry, I had to switch to a different platform) Kid perspective again.
Wowzers. Pretty self evident. “Eddie my love.” Eddie’s fucking clapback. Damn.
_


Eddie being uncomfortable over the shit his mom talks about his friends, Richie in particular.
_

Richie comforting Eddie when the gang returns to face the leper. I don’t remember whose perspective this is but “shy, fragile, and quite beautiful,” then Richie touching him and attempting to reassure him by trying to be badass. 
_

more like “Hey, help my boyfriend. Are you fucking tickling my boy? That’s my job”
_

Okay, again, I might be over-analyzing, but there’s definitely some symbolism about love in Richie and Eddie sitting at the top step, Ben standing alone, at the bottom, pining after Bev, and Bill and Bev holding hands down the street a bit, about to cheat on their spouses with each other. 
_

Right. So, there’s that. 

Not to mention, they immediately start talking about religion and how strange it is after this, and the things that are considered unacceptable, which also contains another of Eddie’s heavily gay-coded moments. 
_

Or:
Richie -is protective of Eddie-
Bill -is protective of Eddie-
Eddie -man, Bill’s pretty and I would die for him.-
Richie -HEY-
_

Cute. 
_

Slap-ass. 
_

After Eddie’s shouting and wailing on the giant eyeball gave Richie the courage to face his fear. It’s incredibly sweet.
_

Like, they’re just so close in every sense of the word, and so… in love, tbh. How comfortable they become around each other again as adults, when they remember each other, seriously makes me livid over Eddie’s death. Like It already took one man from a happily out and gay couple at the beginning of the novel, wouldn’t it have brought this shit full-circle in a much better way if after killing It, Richie and Eddie could triumphantly live their truth together? I mean, I’m not usually one to complain about tragic themes, but boy am I devastated. 

(NOT TO MENTION, each of them is pretty queer-coded, but honestly, there’s a little something to suggest that probably none of the Losers are completely straight.
Eddie especially. (I’d maybe give examples of that on request, but it would include having to find every time Eddie’s terrified of his orientation and sexuality, and every time someone calls him a name, and I’d cry, so maybe not.)

I REFUSE to screenshot Eddie’s death, but Richie takes it the hardest, and it’s just about the most heartbreaking thing in the whole book.

Richie goes on about some of the misfortune he goes through as an adult, romantically speaking, Eddie’s in a pretty bad marriage, I’m so convinced that he and Eddie could have made each other so happy, and that’s what they deserve, dammit. 

Anyway, that’s all I got! I could have gushed over each of these for longer, but this is already such a long post I wanted to simplify it a bit.

Again, sorry this took so long! Thanks for waiting!

So I can’t just complain but not do anything.
Therefore I tried to make a master list of still active people in the fandom who create and post and who I feel are pretty much underappreciated.
This fandom is alive and creating. This is a small list of active but lesser known fandom creators for you to check out!
Of course this list can only have people I know and especially when it comes to writers I don’t know too many. So please reblog and add to this list!

“What the fuck are all of you looking at?” he glared at the spectators that had gathered around you two , harshly enough for them to disperse around and resume whatever they were doing. You stood frozen in your spot, tightly clutching your bag against your chest , fingers digging into the leather. Jung Hoseok, the baddest boy in town was standing in front of you and he had just asked you out on a date. With a toothpick dangling from his lips, he was tapping his foot impatiently on the ground waiting for you to respond.

“Listen buttercup I don’t have all day. Is this date happening or not?” he took a step towards you and your automatic response was taking a step back. The process continued until you were pinned against his motorcycle.  His placed his hands on either side of you and leant in close to your ear. He smelled like musk and amber and you couldn’t stop yourself from inhaling his scent. “Is it” his nose grazed your neck “or is it not” he moved back to face you. His eyes studied your face with such intensity that the end result was your cheeks turning a bright shade of pink.

Mother's Day is coming up and...

I’ve been seeing a lot of shit implying you should “love your mom unconditionally”, or those posts “reblog if u love ur mom!!!1!!” and I just wanna say to all of you with not-so-great or even abusive mothers; It’s okay if you DON’T love your her.
You DON’T have to call her,
and you DON’T have to get her something.
You don’t have to do anything you don’t feel like she deserves or that you aren’t comfortable with and shouldn’t be guilted into doing so by this website, her or anyone else.

respect each other

So basically I’ve been sitting back, observing, and experiencing. I really wasn’t about to do this but it’s been on my mind since I came back from my hiatus. I’m not sure what happened to the tumblr community but as someone that’s been here for six years, I just want to point a few things out.

I have never seen it get this bad? Everyone used to be much kinder, and more interactive with one another. As far as the world of fics goes, I have some stuff I need to get off my chest because this is ridiculous.

I have never seen the readers so quiet and the writers so discouraged in all my years here.
