like don’t get it twisted I’m rolling my eyes at the way tumblr reacted to DC fans’ excitement over the casting of doj and the (perceived because I haven’t actually seen anyone being a dick about it yet but I fully believe they are capable of doing so) criticism of the newest DC announcements, but I think there is also a deeper reason why so much of “tumblr*” is resistant to DC and thus defensive of marvel? not just because marvel has a bigger fanbase. like there’s a reason the DC fandom died out on tumblr while the marvel fandom grew, and that’s because for the past 3 years DC’s marketing goal has been to alienate and drive away the “tumblr” crowd, whereas marvel actually made a pretty decent effort at superficially catering towards us, or at least not being so obvious in their disdain and disinterest in getting our money. up until recently, I mean. so marvel fans being resistant and distrustful of DC and protective of marvel isn’t really just an issue of an us vs. them thing, although that plays a major role in it. I think there’s more of a nuance to it, and definitely how the two companies have marketed themselves over the past few years is a big part.

obviously this doesn’t excuse any marvel fans who are being gross about all this, or who were sending everyone absolutely obnoxious anons (I saw so many, and gOT more than my fair share DESPITE BEING A MARVEL FAN AND A COMICS FAN BECAUSE OF THE FILMS come on y’all). and the inability to hear any rightfully earned criticism towards marvel, especially in favor of DC, is childish and needs to stop. but like, DC did such a good job at showing how little they respected anyone in their audience who isn’t a straight white male that of course there’s going to be some residual distrust. like, marvel fans’ first instinct of defending the fandom where they’ve felt safer for the past few years is obviously unhelpful, but I understand it. it’s unfair and wrong, because marvel studios is just as bad if not worse at the moment than the people in charge of the DC films, not even getting into either of the comics side, but I get it.

really the whole point of this post is that the only person who should be saying “on your left” is steve rogers as he sprints past sam wilson in a desperate effort to make some kind of human contact in a century he doesn’t fully understand or belong to and also maybe flirt a little.

*the use of quotes here is to indicate the assumed hivemind that makes up tumblr and is used as a catch all to refer to comics fans who don’t spend most of their time on reddit, etc

Important: Please be safe while playing Pokémon Go. People have already experienced multiple injuries from it and some people have claimed it's led them to sketchy/dangerous places. Four robbery suspects used a lure in the game to attract all potential victims to the same place. I know lots of people use it while driving, please don't. I'm not asking anyone to stop playing because I use it myself, but if you're going out at any time of the day, especially night time, at least have one other person with you. And please don't be an idiot, actually pay attention to your surroundings every once in a while rather than just staring at your phone. Be aware of the people/environment around you.
A conversation with my mom while driving home
  • mom: *Is reading a news article* Why talking to your car is bad for you...
  • me: Talking to your car? Like 'That was a nice turn, let's see you do it again..'
  • mom: Oh it means like the voice things in the car like where you answer the phone while driving without using the phone.
  • me: Well that makes sense haha
  • mom: You thought it meant (seductive voice) "Mmmmm...You're looking extra shiny today.."
  • me: ...mom...
  • mom: (seductive voice) You like it when I fill up your tank don't you...It was from that gas station by our house..I know how you like it there..
  • me: can you stop now
  • mom: (seductive voice) You want me to check your engine? Oh yeah I'll open up your hood real wide...
  • me: MOM STOP OR I'M GOING TO STOP THIS CAR RIGHT NOW
