but i am going to post it

apparently you can bring a werewolf back to human form if you truly love and trust each other

or if you throw its clothes at it

I am really tired yall.

Lemme just preface this with saying that I am a writer. I have been writing for most of my life. I have taken actual classes about writing and about what fiction can offer you, me, and people as a whole. I have won an award for something that I wrote. I know and love fiction, be it in written form, graphic novels, or film. It is all so good and complex and it’s something I am passionate about. That said, let’s get into this.

A good majority of the discourse that goes on in most of the fandoms I’m in stem from the idea that violence and forbidden sexual acts in fiction will encourage those actions in reality. It is important to know, firstly, that the only time this happens is when a person is immature enough or not mentally healthy enough to distinguish reality from fiction. Growing up, my parents would often stop horror movies (back when I first started watching them) to ask me questions. To be fair, they were pretty shitty people, but in this one aspect, they were so good about making sure I knew this difference. “You know this is just a movie, right? None of the stuff on the tv is real.” They’d assure before continuing the film.

It’s not real.

Now, half of the stuff I read or watched back then was nowhere near pushing boundaries or making me think critically about society or whatever. However, I knew that what I watched wasn’t real. It was images on a screen. If I don’t like what I’m seeing, I can walk away. It doesn’t have to affect me, personally,  unless I let it.

Now, lets circle back. School. College. I took a writing class that used this book:

Granted, it was a screenwriting class and most of the chapters were about various script formats, but the beginning chapters focused on why we write and why we make the stories we do.

It had a section in it describing how human needs and desires are met through fiction. It detailed those needs in a list. This list:

Please draw your attention to the ones on the list that say that fictions helps people to:

Be purged of unpleasant emotions

To have vicarious but controlled emotional experiences

To confront, in a controlled situation, the horrible and terrible

To explore taboo subjects without guilt

Just because you personal don’t need various forms of ‘taboo’ media, doesn’t mean that others don’t. Media, in all of its forms, is a way for people to explore things safely. It’s an outlet that doesn’t harm anyone and it offers the creator and viewer/reader a safe way of exploring the complexities of situations (or in some cases relationships) that these people do not want to be involved in irl. Because we can distinguish reality from fiction. Because none of us are going out killing people or getting into abusive relationships or fucking our sibling.

While being critical of the media we consume is important and it is vital to dissect the whys of the media being created, there is a line between creating open discussion about these taboos, about the society and personal experiences that makes one need these outlets, and verbally abusing and harassing strangers.

If you want to create a dialogue about media or a ship you don’t agree with, fine. Talk about it. Dissect it. Really dig deep into the human condition and the psychology behind these outlets, but don’t shame people for them to the point of telling them to kill themselves or telling them they are human garbage or what the fuck ever.

Fiction isn’t always meant to be picturesque. It’s not always going to be SFW. If that isn’t your cup of tea, then great. Stop going into the tags of things that make you feel unhealthy. You do you. Keep yourself safe. Stop continuously exposing yourself to content that you can’t swallow. To keep getting involved, to keep harassing people, to keep abusing strangers shows that you don’t give a damn about the content. You need an excuse to bully someone else and indulge in holier-than-thou circle jerks with other people who also have no sense of what fiction is for.

THE SIGNS AND THE REASON THEY WOULD LIE TO SOMEONE
  • Aries: Rarely ever lie, but if they do it's because they feel you aren't worthy enough to hear the truth.
  • Taurus: To get out of doing something that doesn't interest them.
  • Gemini: The truth just isn't as interesting as a lie.
  • Cancer: The truth is too hard to explain.
  • Leo: They want to protect someone they care about.
  • Virgo: They don't want someone to know the truth and look at them differently because of it.
  • Libra: They lie to make themselves seem a lot cooler than they really are.
  • Scorpio: The truth reveals something about their life.
  • Sagittarius: They don't lie... They just conveniently leave out the truth.
  • Capricorn: To avoid talking about a weird topic.
  • Aquarius: They lie to keep others interested in what they have to say next.
  • Pisces: The truth doesn't blend in with their perception of reality.

Okay so I was looking at my Rick and Morty Lootcrate shirt because it’s pretty tight on me, but then I noticed something. Here’s an image of the entire shirt so you know what I’m talking about:

I was looking in the top, left hand corner of the shirt when something interesting caught my eye. While the rest of the stuff was either of the portal gun or science stuff, this black box in the corner had way too much detail to just be something someone on the design team threw together:

(Here’s a closeup from my own shirt for more detail)

So, I followed the hunch, and sure enough, in episode 3x01…

This Lootcrate, mind you, came out in September, at the latest. These two separate pieces of content were released 8 months apart.

It’s not 100% the same, but you cannot look at these two things and say that they don’t at all look similar.
