even if i don't really like this ship

InuKag Last Day Bonus: Thank You Cynthia

I can’t believe InuKag Week is actually ending today. It’s been such an amazing fun wild seven days, and it’s felt like an avalanche I was snowboarding on from the very beginning on Monday to the last today. 

All the content has filled me with so much InuKag love, I didn’t even think I was capable of loving this ship anymore than I do, but everyone combined putting out amazing effort to post or reblog or submit, it’s almost like we were all together at a week long festival just happy to be around. I’ve discovered so many people from this event, my following list has GROWN exponentially haha. 

Last year I made a post like this thanking the fandom, and trust me when I say none of this is possible without the participation and love of a large group of people supporting us throughout the entire thing. You all are the heart and soul of this machine, and it doesn’t have a purpose without you. 

But this year I want to Thank Someone very special and dear to this fandom and myself:

@inukag aka Cynthia, has given so much to make not only this event, but our corner of the InuKag fandom an incredibly fun and interactive place. Last year when we did InuKag week together, we were both already excited and expectant for InuKag Week 2017, and before we knew it, IT WAS 2017, and she had taken care of ALL the prompts, ALL the edits, she REVAMPED the theme of this site, and from the very start on Monday at midnight, she was checking the tags, answering asks, doing it all while I was sleeping

(And “Family” day btw? I’ve already told you, but it WRECKED ME. Like a damn wrecking ball, Miley Cyrus aside, it ended my life over and over and over again.) 

She can try telling you we were a team today, but if we were a team, she was my leader and I followed a few miles behind in absolute awe. 

She needs 100% credit for this week, and WHAT BETTER PERSON to give credit to for InuKag week if not the sole owner of the canon InuKag url. (Doesn’t get better than this, folks)

Maybe you’ve known her as “towards-tomorrow” or maybe you’ve just gotten to know her these past two years as “inukag”, but I can promise you that if you’ve ever looked up anything remotely InuKag, you have probably liked or reblogged her gifs and beautiful gorgeous edits or analysis essays. Her imprint on this fandom echoes out from years and years ago to the present. 

She’s been patient and tolerant and kind, digging through canon material to explain things to us- us who have no clue what chapter is what. You could ask her “what chapters did Kagome get mad at Inuyasha?” and she’ll pull out annotated pages with highlighted quotes and footnotes. 

This girl spent days and sleepless hours making sure the promos for the InuKag Week 2017 Master Post were perfect- sometimes, sometimes I wish everyone got a behind the scenes look at how she spends meticulous time making sure every frame is perfect, making sure she has the right English verbiage, going through drafts and drafts on her tumblr until she has it just right. Still kicking herself sometimes for it not being as perfect as SHE wanted it to be, even though it’s BEYOND PERFECT to everyone else. 

She spent time thinking “How can we make this as inclusive as possible?”. She thinks of ideas on how to make it so every single person can do SOMETHING as long as they want to and have the means to access a computer or phone. 

This InuKag Week has by and large been even more fun and successful than the last, and I just want to take a moment to Thank You

This fandom doesn’t deserve you, it’s never deserved you. And even when you’re burnt out, even when you’re wondering “is it even worth it”, you pull it through and manage to host an entire week long event that ignites us. 

You are the Queen, and this week would never have functioned the way it has without you. 

(We look professional af Cynthia and it’s all because of you.)

One day you might be making events or sites for big corporate companies (maybe a small indie firm), or sit in a really nice office with a window, and I really hope you remember the impact you’ve made in this VERY LARGE corner of the fandom.

I love you, and thank you thank you thank you. 

There’s still the rest of today to enjoy our favorite Soul Mates, so take a break, enjoy your weekend (what’s left of it!) and look back at all these wonderful people celebrating with us. Bask in it. 

HAPPY INUKAG WEEK!!! <3

- Until the next sappy long post on this blog, Mod: Lali

Ok ok hear me out:

Smol Link with his tol boyfriend Sidon

and

Smol Zelda with her tol girlfriend Urbosa

*DC Show Writers trying to compare Karamel (who have only been together for like 5 seconds and who have only known each other for like a few months, who are constantly arguing and disrespecting each other, who are painfully awkward and just awful together) to WestAllen (who have known each other since they were kids, who constantly encourage and support each other)

me: “Get the boys, we’re going to war”

You know what, Booth and Brennan will always be my #1 otp because they gave me so much as a couple. I mean, I’m not talking about sex or smut because that’s fanfiction material (like you go girl, want to see your fave ship bang on a piano? go and read that !!!! that’s what that website is for) but everything else. The ‘platonic’ aspect of their relationship has always been the best part of their dynamic to me, but they were still able to overcome that phase and be a family. This being said, that original dynamic has never been compromized, not to me at least, because when it comes to the important stuff, Booth and Brennan are still partners first, they are still the people they would give up their life for, they would fight for each other. While the majority of other ships kinda change once they get together. Booth and Brennan never completely changed, so much that people complain because they’d rather have them being romantic the 100% of the time. I don’t. Also, it’s the little things that matter to me, like it might sound stupid, but I find it extremely adorable and precious that Brennan knows Booth by knowing his injuries. Every time something happens, she’s able to compare factures and other stuff to Booth’s. And that’s so IC, that’s something I really want to see because it’s them. And it’s been this way since she first found out about his past in 1x15 and it never changed. She imagined him on that autopsy table in 11x01 by looking at the bones, just like it happened on 12x04 with Aldo and in other many occasions. Brennan saying like I know that because of your brain tumor. She knows his brain scans. YAAAS. Give me this stuff. Give me Booth and Brennan that can’t sleep without each other at night when one of them is struggling with something, give me them talking about taking someone’s life and carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Give me them hurting each other to save each other. They would never cheat on each other or hurt each other because they want to. They only do it because it’s the only way. Yaas. Screw sex, just give me this stuff.

Two sides of the same coin

Arthur Pendragon & Merlin Emrys
The once and Future King & the greatest Sorcerer to ever walk the Earth


The last days mark my re-obsession with Merlin and here we are, I drew something. Funny to compare this accidental piece with the old one of these two (klick) from 2013.

I really don’t care if this is going to insult people. Feel free to hate me after you saw this, I don’t mind. I love Mercy76 , I even understand why people ship Reaper x Mercy, Reaper x Soldier or Genji x Mercy. I’m someone who’s able to tolerate every ship and I would never ever tell someone that they and/or their pairing are shit. Everybody has a different taste and that’s totally fine with me. Just live and let live. But if someone insults me and tries to tell me that I shouldn’t ship this or that pairing… well, then they cross a line.
I don’t like Pharah. Never did, she’s one of my last favourite heroes and besides that, I don’t like Pharmercy. This doesn’t mean I’m dumb, gross, an asshole or homophob. Hell, I even support Reaper76 and McHanzo, but people don’t seem to care about that. I don’t understand the whole Pharmercy-Pairing and it just doesn’t appeal to me.
But that’s not a reason for me to write hate messages, nor a reason to insult people or tell everybody on the internet how much I don’t like this ship. I don’t go to the tags to tell people how dumb they are for shipping it. No, I rather stay in my lawn, being happy with my OTPs and with people who also ship it. I don’t have the time nor the energy to insult people.
On this day, it’s a little bit different. I got another hate-mail out of the blue and I got insulted again.
It’s funny that it’s ALWAYS the Pharmercy-shippers who shit on my pairings. I even got followers who like other pairings than Mercy76 and yet they like my stuff. I’m so happy to hear nice things from them, without any kind of hate. I’m not gonna lie, I was pretty angry and upset to get another message full of hate, so that’s why I made this comic. I hope some poeple can understand the way I feel, and don’t worry: I know that there are people out there who ship Pharmercy and don’t hate people for shipping anything. And I do know that there are M76 shippers who are pieces of shit. But it has only happened to me with people who ship Pharmercy, even though I don’t want to insult the whole group. It’s just about the people who hate on everything I do.

Ok. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I want Kageyama and Hinata to revert back to the freak quick, if only even once. I want them to be in a do-or-die situation during a match and kageyama tosses in instinct and Hinata jumps, but he maybe doesn’t trust himself to get it when he’s shaking with nerves and staring at the daunting wall in front of him or something, so he…closes his eyes. Because he knows Kageyama’s tosses will always reach him.

Lmao all this Gency/Pharmercy “discourse” is honestly pathetic.

  • First of all, it’s literally nothing but some dialogue. 
  • Threatening to quit the fandom over a ship you don’t like getting teased? how old are you?
  • Same people saying they’re gonna quit are the same people who mocked all the idiotic straight people crying about Tracer being gay. Do you really want that to be your legacy? behaving in the same childish manner as them?
  • 90% of said people saying they’re leaving if Gency becomes canon are the same people who ship toxic shit like WidowTracer
  • Interracial relationships are just as important and deserve representation too!.
  • Literally all I’ve seen are people complaining that it’s a ~boring het romance~ but ignoring the fact that we like never see interracial relationships ever done well?
  • Why is this boiling down to a “my ship is better than your ship” pissing contest, we’re better than that
  • Genji’s butt belongs to me anyway

tl;dr: shut the fuck up and stop crying the second blizzard doesn’t do everything to cater around you.

yeah like I’m really thinking about newt and credence’s relationship and it seems kinda paternalistic?? that thing tina says- “newt and I will protect you”- sounds like “responsible adults offering to care for vulnerable child” even if credence isn’t technically a child idk that’s the vibe I’m getting now that I really think about it

Doodles~

I just got into SVTFOE and the first episode that I’ve watched was Bon Bon the Birthday Clown, aka the last one that came out xD Then I came across the episode where Tom and Marco sing and all that (basically how I started shipping Tomco). And I liked Tom so much that I procedeed to watch every episode that included him haha.

Seriously though, I really need to watch the episodes in the right order.

A plot bunny that won’t leave me alone:

A Chroma Conclave-free future has arrived. A bit of peace. Both Keyleth and Vex discover their pregnancies at the same time. It’s the fluff fic to end all fluff fics. I’m not even sorry.

It’s fucking SICKENINGLY sweet. Like none of the rest of Vox Machina can stand to be around Perc'ahlia and Vaxleth because of how disgustingly lovey-dovey they’re being.

A sunny morning arrives. Group breakfast. Scanlan is (quite lovingly, obviously) viciously mocking them. Standard “this is so cliché” stuff.

“You won’t catch ME getting all domestic - Kaylee is close enough to family life as I’ll ever get!”

As soon as he finishes speaking, Pike jolts from the table and runs for a bin, puking her guts up.

Total silence.

Vax starts pissing himself laughing.

“Fuck.”

Like… in the grand scheme of things I honestly don’t even really get shipping the way most fans do it, but I’m still so tired of dude-dominated segments of fandom (see: the critical role subreddit today) circlejerking over how curatorial aspects of fandom are so much nobler and less awful than transformative aspects, like give it a rest my dude. ‘It’s just my personal opinion that shipping is an embarrassment’ sure Jan but you’re not exactly being subtle about who you want in your community when the fic writers are disproportionately likely to be non-straight and non-male. More to the point: a lot of fic is just meta in creative-writing form, but the moment that meta talks about interpersonal relationships is the moment it becomes devalued and frivolous. Fic isn’t always valuable or even halfway decent, but neither are goofy meta theories or imperfect summaries of d&d rules. Chill.

It’s that old thing where if someone tries to quiz you in an accusatory way about the minutiae of canon, you quiz them right back about the emotional or interpersonal elements of the canon.

There’s a shitload of harmful stuff to unpack about all elements of fandom, but this is literally just 'it’s icky 'cause girls like it’. You don’t gotta love something, but you don’t gotta take time out of your day to loudly remind everyone how much you hate it and want to use it to gatekeep, either.

The DR fandom isn’t the worst I’ve seen - far from it - but it’s the only one where I’ve seen this trend to mock someone else’s work. I don’t care if you don’t like this edit/fanfiction/fanart. Whether it’s because you dislike the theme, the ship, the artstyle, it’s not my problem. Don’t reblog someone’s art with some derogatory comment, even in the tags.

People spend hours making their stuff, they don’t need you to stick your ‘different’ opinion on it ? If you reblog something, it’s because you enjoy it, if you don’t enjoy it, please don’t reblog it, and if you can’t stand seeing this particular kind of art on your blog, unfollow, block, blackist if you need to.

I’ve been in this fandom for a couple of months, and I’ve seen entire blogs dedicated to bashing fanworks, but also just some random blog I followed reblogging edits to mock the person who made them.

It’s killing me that these people don’t understand how much they can hurt some people who are artists, whether you like their art or not, and not always confident about what they do, and the day they decide to post their work, they are laughed at/insulted/mocked.
