Ahhhh !!! I can’t mcfreakin’ believe it guys. I can’t believe so many of you are willing to put up with my meme loving ass. I’m still a relatively new blog too so let me just say thank you so much for following me and supporting this big ol’ idiot. I really appreciate you all from my close friends to new followers that just came across me. I could go on a sappy ramble but I’m just gonna keep it short and sweet and say thank you once more. I really love you guys ❤︎
mutuals are bolded, favorites are italicized
PAL-ADINS: My friendos and those very near and dear to my heart.
how many times do i have to say i love you to make my friends, ALL OF THEM, realize that i really truly do love them. how many times until they believe it and learn to love themselves through it. this is directed to all my friends.
your hogwarts house is more important than your name
so vast?? so old??? scary, kind of.
really old classic fics
used to have ship wars like all hell, and kind of still does??? but not really??? it’s better now
every other fandom has a harry potter au.
split into different sects that are practically whole different fandoms. there’s the marauders fandom, the golden trio/canon era fandom, the fantastic beasts fandom, the next gen fandom – they’re all like little umbrella fandoms under one great big potter net.
no one’s favorite character is harry potter.
they don’t talk about the cursed child.
will never die.
holy shIT this fandom is a minefield
a lot of teenagers??? like??? a lot???
an alarming amount of smut fic
i dont know a lot of this fandom is really immature and there are so many ship wars?? like???
ignoring actual historical material in favor of coddling your favorite character
the dub is one of the most quotable things i’ve ever seen
hetalia is very much a starter anime. a lot of people get into this anime as like a gateway drug and grow out of the fandom later on.
lots of bad fic, with rare absolute GEMS thrown in.
some fics are beautifully researched, intricate, historically accurate, and amazing. so much potential for fic in this fandom.
the main character is jean valjean
much of the fandom does not realize this.
les amis are love, les amis are life. jean valjean?? who??? javert??? who’s that?? fantine????? WHO THE FC U K
emerges from the deep once every few years when a movie or something else comes out.
The Movie Musical shot the fandom to new heights and launched a new era, but now has mostly calmed down???
also will never die. been around since 1862 and still going strong.
used to be eponine stans (eppyboppers) who hated cosette??? and usually shipped eponine with marius or enjolras. thank god that’s over.
literally everyone ships E/R.
even the actors ship E/R.
sO MUCH GREAT FIC
oikawa tooru is universally adored
pretty much everyone ships the same things?? like obviously not, and there are so many great character dynamics and rarepairs, but ships like bokuaka, iwaoi, kagehina, etc. are so ingrained in the actual canon that everyone ships them a LITTLE bit, even if you ship the character different ways too.
you can ship anyone with anyone. literally. go fuckin wild.
everyone has normal hair except for the one owl guy.
YOU SHOULD HAVE COME TO SHIRATORIZAWA
Yuri!! on Ice
EVERYONE SHIPS VICTUURI. IT IS AN ACTUAL CANON GAY SHIP AND IT IS GOLDEN.
at this point 90% of the fandom is just screaming over any new content they get b/c it’s all so great.
everyone under 20 gets shipped with yurio, and every one of these ships is somehow controversial.
fandom swings back and forth between wanting JJ to die in a fire or being ready to protect him to the ends of the earth.
sala or sara??? nobody can decide??? (spoiler alert: it’s sara, that’s a real italian name, sala is the word for living room.)
even the people who despise the dub can’t hate it THAT much
at one point the fandom hated chris, but now he’s just kind of the weird overly sexual uncle at the family barbecue
my mom watches her shows in the family room of our house where everyone is always hanging out and sometimes theres a (hetero) sex scene in whatever she’s watching and no matter how explicit or non explicit it is no one cares. its not a big deal. i mean its a little weird sometimes to just listen to really bad moaning for a solid minute but its not like she changes the channel or anything its just part of the show.
but me? i flinch when i’m watching two girls on my laptop and someone walks by or enters the room. not sex with two girls just. two girls. thats all. i pause the video and i wait for them to leave, my heart beating really fast. im not even in the closet. if the girls kiss i feel like i have to hide my screen and make sure no one saw i was watching that.
sometimes you need to accept that yes i may have been a little bit manipulative. yes i worded something in a specific way that would make my friend/fp/SO feel a bit guilty. yes i could have handled that situation in a much better way. yes i am wrong.
The moment I knew @mormoc was going to be apart of the @pjocoloringbookproject, was the moment I knew that it was going to be the very first picture that I colored. And she didn’t disappoint me! I was utterly blown away with this piece (as I usually am whenever I see any of May’s artwork) and was so excited to color it!
Thank you May, for your beautiful lineart that is just so wonderfully compelling and breathtakingly fun to look at and color! You’re an incredible artist and a lovely friend altogether! Thank you!
