Oh no the dog is super sick and finding out about his dog dying last year destroyed Yuuri at the grand prix and now he's competing to win back his pride and earn his new bf's love what should we do when should we tell him????
Between short programs and freeskate seems like a nice time.
The other day I saw a post with folks saying something like “I’m worried that Bendy and the Ink Machine’s fandom will turn out like FNAF’s or Undertale’s!” And I’ve seen this kind of sentiment going around for other fandoms too but like…
Dude, have you seen any large fandoms other than FNAF’s or Undertale’s?
Because that is what large fandoms look like. That is what they have looked like since internet communities became a thing. I know I say this a lot but I have been in internet fandoms since the mid-90s. And, no, they really have not changed.
(Aside from people using them to scream at people about social issues. That’s a bit newer.)
If a fandom is large, you’ll see a lot of people making OCs, making theories, making AUs, RPing, shipping, etc, etc. Because that is what fandoms do. You’ll also see fandoms doing crappy things. Because fandoms consist of people. And some people do crappy things.
Like, you cannot say “I don’t want the fandom to be like X popular fandom” because the only way for that to happen is… for the thing to not become successful. So you’re kindof wishing for that thing you like to fail. Which is not exactly a good thing to wish for.
Undertale and FNAF are nothing new. Fandoms are fandoms. Some fandoms do have unique problems, but for the most part, they behave the same way. You can’t really change that, so don’t worry about it. What will happen will happen–that’s just how fandoms are. Find the parts of them that you like, and enjoy them.
me: *thinks about Grima while doing the dishes* what if Morgan came to the past and didn’t lose her memories but still got separated from the rest of the children, but then Grima from alternate future got into trouble and had to possess Morgan when Robin’s body was damaged, and ran away to the past, too. And then he found the real Morgan and murdered her and started to pretend he’s her (having her body ofc) and he faked his amnesia just to avoid bothering with lying about Morgan’s childhood because he obviously didn’t know all of the details and it would be suspicious if suddenly Morgan began to tangle herself in her memories. Her “ouch, my head, but wow I remember something!” WAS A LIE And then Robin sacrifices himself, wakes up in the field, Chrom picks him up, they hug and Robin cries because finally everything is over, they won, he’s free of the fell blood, grima is gone. And then there’s Morgan standing next to them and she’s like
me: looks down at the dishes. There’s a knife in my hand,
Kay so let’s say Alya got the fox miraculous and completely flips out. First thing she does is text Marinette like “Girl! I’ve got the biggest scoop ever! You’ve gotta come over!” or something so her and Marinette meet up somewhere at like Alya’s house or something and Alya just transforms and Marinette is like “Oh, cool” and Alya’s too excited for herself to realize that Marinette doesn’t sound as shocked as she should and Marinette is thinking like “Oh, this is good. We need someone else cause the Akumas have been getting worse” and she’s like “How long have you had this?” and Alya’s like “Oh, I just got it like five minutes ago and I HAD to tell you” and Marinette is freaking out because Alya trusted her with this immediately and its been years (?) and she still hasn’t even told Chat her identity and she can’t tell Alya before she tells Chat because that would be breaking his trust but she also can’t NOT tell Alya and so she’s like “Yeah, this is really cool, but I have to be somewhere” and leaves.
So later on she meets up with Chat and is like “Listen, I want us to know each other’s identities” and so Chat is stoked and they’re getting ready when Fox Alya shows up and is like “Hey guys! I’m Alya–I mean–shit” and so then Adrien starts freaking out because holy shit Alya’s a Miraculous? And so Marinette is like “Might as well tell you both at once” and de-transforms and Alya is like “Holy shit! Marinette! You’re Ladybug?!?!” and then Chat is thrilled because Adrien is super obviously crushing on Marinette lets be real and so he de-transforms while Marinette is telling Alya that she needs to be more careful about her identity and then Alya interrupts with “Holy shit! Adrien is Chat Noir?” and then Marinette and Adrien aren’t really phased by this because there are more important things to worry about like the fact that Alya is screaming their secret identities from the top of Notre Dame.
So Adrien’s like “Dude, you can’t just tell people your identity. Its called secret for a reason” and Alya’s not listening like “Marinette, I can’t believe you’ve been fighting crime with Adrien Freaking Agreste for years and you haven’t hooked up yet” and Marinette’s like “To be fair, I only learned that Chat’s Adrien tonight” and Alya’s like “What? Why?” and they’re like “Cause SECRET IDENTITIES” and so Alya gets all quiet and looks at the ground and Marinette’s like “How many people have you told?” and Alya’s like “Just you!
“…and my mom…
“…and my sisters might have caught me taking selfies in my suit earlier…
“…and I might have kind of posted about it on the Ladyblog….”
And Marinette and Adrien totally facepalm and are like “Seriously?”
So Alya deletes the post and makes some April Fools joke about it (even though its, like, July) and nobody really seems to have bought it so everything’s good.
Until a few weeks later when Nino gets the turtle miraculous and shows up for school in costume with an “Adrien! Dude! Check it out! I’m a Ninja Turtle!”
And, of course, Alya transforms because “My costume’s way cooler, right, Marinette?”
And Marinette and Adrien just make eye contact and groan because what horrible things could they have possibly done in a past life to get stuck with these people who clearly don’t understand the importance of Secret Identities?
