everyone loves ya

hi all. i know i’ve been really distant recently (whoo mental illness) but i’ve gotten quite a few asks about this whole pma vs “why aren’t you wearing your mask” thing.

as a fan of both mark and jack, as many of us are, i hate that this has become about picking sides.

first off, i’d like to say that the state of mark and jack’s friendship has nothing to do with us! so many people are discussing it right now but news flash - it’s none of our business! sure i love them both and enjoy seeing them get along, but too many celebrity friendships get destroyed by the fans pressuring them to stay friends. it’s a really toxic environment to throw them into, and neither jack nor mark deserve that. if they’re the best of friends, that’s great! glad they get along. if they’re just buds who game together occasionally? cool! if they don’t get along at all? that’s fine! sometimes friendships don’t work out! it is my firm belief that you can’t be trying to spread positivity while openly dissecting someone’s private life. 

the other thing people have been criticizing is the difference between jack’s pma and the whole “mark cult” stuff that went down. in all honesty, i believe that mark was trying to spread positivity & interact with his audience in the same way that jack is, only in his own creative, spooky way. but at the same time i don’t think it’s quite fair to compare and contrast them. some view jack’s pma thing as overbearing; hell, i’ve had days where my depression is so bad that even i get irked by it. but that’s your opinion! positivity manifests itself in different ways!

on the other hand, there’s the fact that mark’s whole thing has been giving people nightmares, triggering anxiety, etc. i can guarantee you this is not what he wanted. i’m not gonna blame the community (i’m in the community lmao oops) but a portion of it at least took this whole thing way out of hand. i have seen “mark cultists” sending threats and joking about suicide, etc., in some cases even in messages to people with mental health issues. this isn’t cool.

i’m rambling at this point but basically! take a chill pill! spread the positivitiy, stop scrutinizing people’s personal relationships, realize what people’s boundaries are when it comes to jokes, and just love each other. you don’t have to like mark. you don’t have to like jack. but you also don’t have to shit on the people who do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

NYCC Q&A speed round → [requested by:anon]

There’s something so sensual about eye contact with your tc. They’re sitting or standing at one end of the classroom passionately talking about their favorite subject, and then they look to you, as if they want your validation, as if they want to make sure that you in particular are listening. And in those moments, every other student disappears, and nothing else matters except that brief connection, that moment of clarity where you say with your eyes, “I am listening, and I care.”

The way Charming’s first impulse is to save/comfort/love/protect his baby girl no matter the situation, always makes my heart ache for all the time he lost with her.  This episode is no exception.  David Nolan is the true heart of the Charming family.  

first of all, lemont illinois native Scott Darling loves chicago and the chicago blackhawks, not only that, but playing for the blackhawks was his dream, and he’s said before that he would’ve loved to be a blackhawk for life, so jot that down

I really want a fandom internet friend. So we can fangirl together, facetime and talk about our problems. I want to talk to a person from a different counrty so I can learn about them. I want to feel like I should just get to a plain and see them.

brunomars: I met cardi B at 3 am after my show in LA backstage where we recorded her verse for Finesse. She walked in the room and she was everything I’d hope she’d be. Never change cardi! Don’t let this crazy music business change who you are. You posses something that can’t be taught. You’re a true star. Thank you for putting your energy and love all over this record and video. I hope you feel better soon because we got some celebrating to do. Everyone show ya love for the one and only CARDI B! 👏👏👏👏 #Finesse
