and we have so many meetups ;;;

Hey everyone- Vix here! Thanks to all who came to the Owari no Seraph Meetup at Anime Midwest 2016! It was a little bit of a hassle for me to get the word out because of Midwest’s inability to establish locations for meetups until the last possible second, but we had a lovely turn-out of characters.

I may post the pictures here later, but for now, have some selfies and shenanigans and some group shots.

I was Guren on Friday and Mika on Saturday. :) 

It’s time for another Tyler Oakley Tumblr Meetup! So many of you have been asking me to plan another one - so here we are! 

When: Saturday, May 14th
Time: 1:00pm - 3:00pm EST (Ask me for timezone conversions!)
Tag: Tyler Oakley Tumblr Meetup 

If you aren’t already familiar with these tumblr meetups, here’s how to participate: 

Post selfies, gifs, edits, art, play games, make new friends, reblog other people’s posts, gain followers and find new blogs! It’s like a massive meetup for the fandom - but online! You don’t have to be a Tyler blog to participate, everyone is welcome & encouraged to join! 

For any questions or for more information, contact me, @ayetroyler at my ask box or on twitter (@ayetroyler)!

The last Otakon in Baltimore was absurdly hot and humid so full armor was probably not the best idea but whoops we did it anyway! Didn’t even bother going over to the inner harbor but we had a good time all the same. 

We had the very excellent opportunity to meet and hang out with so many impressive cosplayers at the Bioware meetup like @missbirb @the-crazzy-one @crimsonhawkecosplay and @safetytank and may have even peeped @dangerous-ladies waiting for the Fire Emblem meetup but we weren’t super sure :3c

We are very excited to make the move to DC next season !! :)

It’ll be just a small meetup where we can bring food and sit around to just talk and get to know everyone. If you guys have any questions just message me or Juliet and follow us for any updates. Hope to see lots of you guys there!!!

PS like this if you’re thinking of coming and even if you’re not please reblog so we can spread the message to as many people as possible

i wanted to just chime in with my thoughts about @thephandomtea and any blogs like it (i have @ mentioned you specifically because i wanted to give you a chance to defend yourselves or respond to this post at all in any way).

i cannot honestly say that i’m surprised a blog like this has popped up, as i’ve seen it before in countless other fandoms. while there are both positive and negative “confessions”, i think we can all agree that the content on these types of blogs are mostly negative in nature, and i definitely think this is reflected on thephandomtea. we shouldn’t dismiss the good things that have come out of it, though, as i have seen many compliments and i know that a poc phandom meetup has gotten put together because of this blog, so it’s not fair to say that it’s all horrible! the problem is that the majority of it is, and blogs like this are ones that this community does not need.

i’m not making this post because something mean was said about me or one of my friends and i’m pissed off, i’m making this post because this kind of negativity isn’t acceptable. i completely understand not liking someone in the phandom, i completely understand being a “smaller blog” and feeling isolated from the “bigger blogs”, and i completely understand that there are a lot of things in this community that piss people off, but this is not the way to go about venting your frustrations. if someone annoys you, unfollow them, block them, blacklist them. with all the features that this website and its third-party extensions provide you, it’s really easy to completely eliminate someone from your tumblr experience. i get it - “throwing shade” is fun, but there is a huge difference between throwing shade and bullying, and many, many people submitting to thephandomtea and some of the mods themselves have crossed this line.

the people you are bitching about are people on the internet who you do not know personally, who give you a glimpse of their personalities on their blogs and, more often than not, are teenagers. i know that when you’re in your teens you feel all grown up, but the fact of the matter is you’re still a kid (and that’s not meant as an insult - being young is great, please milk it until it’s dry). the person receiving the most hate on this blog is sixteen. SIXTEEN! i know that doesn’t seem so young, but really, it is! sixteen year olds make mistakes. sixteen year olds can be annoying and insufferable and have big heads. sixteen year olds can be the shittiest people you’ll ever meet. but they are young and they are learning, and that is not an excuse but bullying them because they’re not really grown up yet is not solving anything. if they’re being problematic or annoying or mean call them out and do it nicely. people respond to kind words so much better than they do to hateful ones. they may listen to you, they may not, they may ignore you completely, and if that happens, move on. it is not your job to teach a kid on the internet to grow up. there’s only so much you can do before it’s out of your hands. bullying someone into acting correctly is not and never will be okay. (p.s. not saying only sixteen year olds and/or teenagers do this, because trust me, older people in the phandom are guilty of the same things. just using the age sixteen as an example bc that’s who most of the blog is targeting)

i know that this is such a tired and worn out card to play, and i know it’s been turned into somewhat of a joke, but let’s really take a page out of dan’s book and practice #nicerinternet, okay? it’s so, so easy to be hateful sometimes (i am too!! no one is perfect!!!), but it’s also really easy to be nice and spread positivity! if you don’t like someone, do what i suggested earlier and completely alienate them from your experience in this community. so many people turn to the phandom and tumblr to get away from everything that’s going on in their life, so instead of being hateful, let’s all do the best we can to make this a happy, positive experience for everyone involved. i fully encourage calling out problematic behavior and bringing attention to issues that need to be resolved, but that can be done in a civil manner that doesn’t involve personally attacking anyone. in the words of the beautiful and wise cinderella, have courage and be kind! 

i cannot stress this enough: think before you post, think before you hit anon, and think about the impact your words will have on both the community and the individuals they are directed towards. there is already so much negativity in this community - please don’t let yourself be a part of it.

Pittsburgh Swiftie Meetup! - June 6, 4:30 - 5:00 PM (Vietnam Veterans Monument)

Calling all Swifties going to the 1989 World Tour in Pittsburgh on June 6.

tayaesthetic and I are organizing a meet up before the show! It will be from 4;30-5pm (doors open at 5 pm) at the Vietnam Veterans Monument! (picture below and you can google the address) It is in front of Heinz Field/Del Monte facing the river.

We will have a sign that says “Tumblr Meetup” (with our blogs written on it) so you know we are legit! If everyone could either write their blog name on their arm or on a small sign so we can see who everyone is that would be awesome!

Because of taylorswift and tumblr I have made so many friends and felt so loved. The least we can do is try to meet each other and take a group picture! :)

We hope to see as many of you as possible there! Anyone from tumblr attending this concert is welcome! :D

Midwest meetup?

I have occasionally and casually talked with several of you about doing a Midwest meetup. I’d like to see how many people might really be interested in this.

I was thinking it might be cool to pick a weekend 5K sometime in the summer / fall and then host a BBQ after. Something fun, casual, family friendly and inexpensive. 

There are races almost every weekend somewhere in or around KC so if there is interest, we can pick one, or something else completely, together.

Anyone interested? 

okay, story time : Today, on January 10, 2015, I met tyleroakley . I went to The Grove in LA for the troyler fandom meetup. I was incredibly nervous not knowing what it’d be like to meet people that I have spent so many hours texting/dming IN REAL LIFE. But, once I got there, it kinda clicked, you know? I got them and they got me. We kinda all just understood each other. We ignored the passing glances of bystanders because let’s face it, we kinda looked like a cult ( not that there’s anything wrong w cults!! you do you. ) So, we were about to go to chipotle when a girl, des, got a dm from tyler saying he was on the second floor in nordstrom and how we can’t cause a “distribution.” We all filed onto the escalator trying to contain ourselves and we did, for the most part. We each got a full body picture taken by the lovely wyatt and also, a group picture. THEN, he came by and told us to hold our phones out w the front facing camera on and he came by and we took selfies. He had a limited amount of time because we had to do this all quickly otherwise we’d be kicked out ( the management were super cool and nice and we made sure to thank them. )  Basically, in short, it was an amazing day where I got to meet some of the most amazing people who are so so genuine and funny and kind and I’m. I still don’t think it happened. Tyler was so so genuine and kind. I can’t thank him enough for this. It was honestly so thoughtful and kind. We always got your back, ty. x

♡1989 Sydney Tour Meetup♡

Hey friends!

Our names are Lucy & Sasha (known as @malteserswift & @screamingcolour on instagram) and we are organising a meetup for the Sydney 1989 tour! We have so many fun things planned for the meetup and so many amazing swifties from Instagram are coming- and now we’re hoping to get some swifties from tumblr to come a long too! The meetup is planned to be a bonding sesh for swifties with loads of fun stuff to do to get hyped for one of the best nights of your life.

We have so many things planned for the meetup and we’re so freaking excited! Here are some of the things we’re planning to do at the 1989 Sydney Tour Meetup-

♡jam sessions & singalongs to Taylor songs!♡ A Taylor guitar will be brought a long and we will be having jam sessions with percussions, guitar, harmonies and general singing! A speaker is also going to be brought so we can listen to Taylor songs throughout the whole meetup.

a dance party♡That’s also what the speaker is for. 1989 is the most upbeat album Taylor has ever made so it’s perfect for dancing!

swiftnic feast♡ Obviously there will be food! Sasha & I will be bringing baked stuff such as cookies and cupcakes and some other food, but we are also hoping for you guys to bring your own food if you can!

polaroid picture taking sprees♡ Many polaroid cameras are being brought to the meetup (like a lot. I’m talking at least 5 xD) and we’ll be taking a heck of a lot of polaroid pictures & selfies in spirit of the theme of 1989 with its polaroids. 

taylor trivia♡ We will be having a massive trivia contest with lolly and small Taylor Swift merchandise prizes. Questions will be about Taylor <3

taylor swift pass the parcel♡ We’re bringing back that childhood birthday party game except the parcel will be wrapped in glorious Taylor posters and the prizes include small bits of Taylor merch & lollies.

♡and the end of the meetup…♡ We will be creating a collage full of the meetup attendees that will includes the polaroids, signatures from people at the meetup, quotes and drawings. 

And now for the serious business bits- when & where is the meetup?

When: The meetup is planned to start at 3:30pm on the day of the concert (28th November 2015) and people are welcome to leave whenever but the meetup will be over definitely by 6:30pm (which is when gates open to go into the stadium.

Where: It is being held right near the main entrance to the stadium that is opposite Novotel and on the corner where the Olympic Boulevard & Dawn Fraser Avenue intersect. We will be holding signs saying 1989 Sydney Tour Meetup and you may or may not see a group of people with loud music & a guitar.

And I think that’s it! If you’re probably going, send an ask with your section and if you want also your seat number & gate so we can see if any of the people going to the meetup are in the same section as you c:

Less than 11 months to go until the Sydney 1989 show and we’re so excited! We hope to see you at the meetup. If you have any questions be sure to shoot an ask ^-^

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU AT LE MEETUP OK BYE HAVE A FABULOUS 2015 AND STUFF JUST THINK

WEN U GET THROUGH TEH YEAR, ZE 1989 TOUR WILL B HERE.
