fandom guide

Hey pals. Apparently this is a thing that we, as an internet femslash community, need, so it is time for Grouchy Aunt J’s Guide To Fandom Deportment.

1. I know that you really like your favourite actors, especially the ones involved in your fave wlw ships. I totally understand this! They are pretty, and wlw fandom is really fun, and if your ship is also a canon ship then it is super exciting and validating to see yourself reflected in media that you love. I, too, love that feeling and get really passionate about the media that I watch, which is why I am a Fandom Old.

2. The actors in your favourite ships are people. Like, real people, with anxieties and food preferences and sometimes they have weird hair days and some of them are introverted and some of them are extroverted, etc etc etc. When they are acting in your favourite media, they are going to work.

3. Part of an actor’s job these days is to sometimes be around on social media. Sometimes not! If they are kind/friendly/available on social media, that is a fun perk of someone who is going the extra mile for their job. You are not entitled to this.

4. Even if you super like a ship and are really passionate about fandom, there are things it is not alright to do. Actors are people, and when fans start treating them poorly it is unkind and potentially frightening or traumatic. Plus, your behaviour reflects badly on all fans and means that fandom as a whole doesn’t get to have nice things anymore. (Thanks, jerks.)

5. It is never okay to:

  • harass actors on social media because something about their character is interfering with your ship/they’re not supporting your ship enough/they’re supporting the wrong ship too much/their character is problematic/the ship you think their ship is better than is problematic/just whatever please stop it this is not their problem. Tweeting at them will not fix whatever is upsetting you on the show you like, but it is probably pretty hurtful for them and not something they should have to put up with.
  • harass/question actors who are involved in queer ships about their sexuality in public spaces. People’s sexuality is private, and being involved in portraying a queer canon or subtext ship doesn’t give fans the right to know about an actor’s queerness or lack thereof unless they choose to volunteer that.
  • tell actors on social media about any sexual fantasies you may or may not have about them, b/c sexual consent also applies to actors.
  • send actors unsolicited links to/hand bound novellas/lovingly hand-lettered scrolls of fanfiction, especially smutty fanfiction, especially especially if that author is not aware that their fic is getting sent to actors inappropriately.
  • send actors your nsfw fanart about them, or someone else’s nsfw fanart about them, oh my g o d.
  • ask them to read your fanfiction or autograph your fanfiction, damn.

5a. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself: would I, or another a reasonable person, want to see this [insert fanwork of varying levels of nsfw] about a representation of myself/themselves? Most actors are actual people who find this just as upsetting as you might find it, if someone drew fanart of you and then brought it to your workplace.

5b. Yes, I know, there is a certain amount of distance involved in creating fanworks because they are about fictional characters and that storytelling and play is one of the things I love about fandom. But I also never, under any circumstances, would want any of the actors involved in my ships to read my fanfiction because it would be super uncomfortable and that’s the point

6. Also, your favourite actor’s non-actor family and friends are just that: not actors. Don’t bother them. Don’t - hypothetically - stalk them and try to catfish them to get information about your favourite actor. It’s super super not okay and it’s a huge boundary violation.

In conclusion: social media is super great and has changed fandom in a lot of neat ways, but having cool TV and movie actors available to connect with in that way is a privilege, not a right. Let’s all act like we are worthy of it.

Warnings:  character death mention, angst
A/N: Feedback is greatly appreciated. this series only has a few more parts left <3

The beeping of hospital machinery and a hospital smell was the first things you noticed when you came to. Opening your eyes you let them adjust to the dimly lit room. You keep your heartbeat steady as you switch the machine off and undo all the wires from the cardiac monitor off you. You then proceed to remove the IV from your arm as you look around the room. In a corner chair you spot a sleeping Jensen. How long had you been out?  
“Oh good you’re awake.” Ryan says waltzing into the room.
“How long I been out Ry?”
“Almost twelve hours.”
Your eyes widen, “Jen been here the whole time?” you gesture to him in the chair.
“Yep. From what I heard even rode in the ambulance with you. He really cares.”
“He shouldn’t Ryan. I’m a walking target I’ll get him killed too!” you whisper yell.
“They weren’t your fault (Y/N).”
“Of course they were.” Your bottom lip quivers “They were my husband and son.”
A hand on your shoulder makes you jump. Turning you see Jensen who obviously heard everything.
“I’m so sorry for your loss.”
You close your eyes and lean into his touch allowing him to comfort you.
“He killed them to get to me it’s my fault.”
“Who killed them (Y/N)?” Jensen asks lightly rubbing your back.
“Not here people. Come lets get you both to the safe house first.” Ryan states.
“Yea ok get the discharge papers Ry.”
He nods and leaves.
“Jen where are my clothes?”
“Didn’t want to invade your space so I brought you a pair of my sweats and a T-shirt.” He gives them to you.
“Thank you.” You smile softly despite the few tears that had escaped. Again closing your eyes as he brushes them away with his thumbs.
“I want to help (Y/N). Please say you’ll let me.”
“Jensen I-I-I don’t know yet. Please let’s just wait until we’re safe.”
He pursues his lips but nods turning around allowing you a little privacy to change from the hospital gown. You do so quickly and just in time before the doctor steps in.
“Miss (Y/L/N) glad to see you awake.”
“Thanks doc. So where are those discharge papers?”
“You’ve been out for quite some time. I’m leery to let you go quite yet.”
“I understand your hesitation Doctor. I’m well aware of the risks please just get me those papers.”
He sighs, “As you wish.” He hands them to you and you sign.
“I hope I don’t see you back anytime soon.”
“No guarantees but I’ll try.” You give him a tight lipped smile and walk out with Jensen.  
Once in the hall you’re both greeted by Ryan and about ten other men with guns and protective gear.
“Let’s go get them to the safe house” Ryan orders as the three of you are walked to the parking garage under heavy guard.
You made it to the safe house without a hitch. However it took forever as you switch cars about seven times to avoid being followed.
Jensen groaned softly as he stretched before he carried your half asleep form into the safe house.  
“Care to tell me what’s going on?” he asks Ryan quietly.
“There is a very disturbed man after her. Until she decides to allow you into her confidence I’m not at liberty to speak more of it. It’s her story not mine.” He gave Jensen an apologetic smile and disappeared into the other room.

hook-on-fandoms  asked:

Cisco Ramon (character writing ask game)

I HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN YOU! i got busy but i’m here!

1. cisco is not always nice, but he IS always kind: cisco has an attitude. he can be very nice if you are nice to him, but if you are mean to him he will 100% give as good as he gets. that being said, if you or one of your loved ones is in danger? he will ALWAYS help you, no exceptions. it doesn’t matter how much of a little bitch you are, he will always do the right thing.

2. cisco is loyal: not a lot of people have shown cisco kindness in his life. when one person does? he latches onto them. “congratulations you have befriended cisco, cisco will now DIE FOR YOU.” it takes a pretty big betrayal for you to lose cisco’s loyalty, as i think barry allen would attest.

3. cisco puts other people before himself: and by other people i mean like everyone on the planet. cisco is the least important person in cisco’s book. nothing that cisco wants or needs is more important than being useful to others. it’s both a virtue and a fault. all things in moderation cisco.

4. cisco is logical: not to a vulcan degree ok, but cisco is not a creature ruled by emotions. he goes with what makes sense rather than going with his gut. he thinks things through. he plans and he prepares and he makes judgments based on the concrete information he has in front of him.

5. cisco is proud: alright, this one’s a bit complicated, but it’s true. cisco has low self esteem in a lot of ways, but the things he excels at? he’s proud of. he knows exactly how good he is with machines and he will fucking tell you. he never felt like his place on the team was threatened, no matter how many engineers were traipsing through star labs. he is good, and he knows it.

Things that would be memes if the new albion fandom were bigger

- “[insert self-deprecating depression joke about loving death and wanting to die]” - jasper, probably
- alternately, “ELYSIUUUUUM” used as a replacement for [insert self-deprecating depression joke about loving death and wanting to die
- lime pie
- edgar responding “ONE DAY YOU WILL LEARN AND YOU WILL BURN LIKE MY HEART BURNS” to minor inconveniences
- sillof randomly being a popular character with jokes about him being “mr. steal yo girl”
- “Vote for Jasper”/“#Jasper[election year]”
- byron wearing shirts to the effect of “I love my grandpa”
- jasper making some kermit the frog meme face in response to byron wearing “i love my grandpa” shirts
- “hello police?”
- “AND ON THE DAY WE COME IT’S OVER”
- P A P A V E R C I G A R E T T E S
- awful jokes about john taking the red pill
- awful people calling john “daddy”/calling him “daddy” ironically
- people pairing that time Constance’s mark suggest she bring her dad back from the dead with Jasper making some kermit the frog meme face
- people wanting Jackie to step on them
- thomas hate
- fuck you, lloyd
- mascot 3000 is a cinnamon roll/pure/did nothing wrong
- adrien being a terrible liar but connor believing him anyway
- making fun of the people who would inevitably insist that adrien is totally cis
- “…Lee?”
- Mary, that random badass lady from Elysium I, would randomly be a popular character, and people would also want her to step on them
- discourse about whether lee was an asshole or racheal overreacted to his response to her
- Mascot 3000 is sick of your shit
- Mascot 3000 reaction images to uneccessary romance plotlines
- “this is just like in my magazines!!!!”

@thing-you-do-with-that-thing

Three weeks you had been contemplating how to tell Dean you were pregnant. You had wracked your brain on a cute way to tell him. He preferred pie so a cake with a message was out. You lived in an underground bunker so a decorated yard was out as well.
Finally you had an idea. You sent him out for groceries and got to work. Starting in the kitchen you left a note. Running all around the bunker you hid notes. It was a scavenger hunt if you will.
You were excited and nervous at the same time waiting for him to come home. You both had always wanted children, but your lifestyle wasn’t conducive. Hopefully Dean would want you and the baby you were growing in your womb.  
**
When Dean came home he found the first note leading him to the war room, then a second to Sams room. So on and so forth until he made it to the library. It was dark as he called out.
“(Y/N)? (Y/N/N)?” He flicks on the light finding a box on the table saying open me. Warily he walked over and opened it, a hint of fear that you were gone rolling through his body. Inside was a picture of you. It was you he knew that belly anywhere. On your stomach was painted “Hi Daddy!” and little footprints as well as a tiny bow tied there.
He couldn’t believe his eyes as he kept staring at the picture, you were pregnant. So many emotions swirled around in him the biggest being joy. You were pregnant with his baby.
“(Y/N)!!!!” he shouts and runs to find you. Which was easy you were in the kitchen putting stuff away after he left for his ‘hunt’.
He picks you up twirling you, “I’m gonna be a a dad?!” he asks excitedly?
You nod giggling, “Surprise!”
He kisses you hard, “I love you so much.”
“I love you too.”
He kneels pushing up your shirt, kissing your belly. You smile running your fingers through his hair.
“Hi Baby I’m your daddy.”
Smiling you watched him murmur to the life growing inside you, knowing he’d make the best daddy.

Coming off my little hiatus from this blog to post my own varsity jacket tutorial!

I’ve been scouring for one and I’m like “screw it, I’m gonna make one” and it turns out it’s a lot easier than I thought. The only difficult part is what to put on the back :“) I’ll be going back to the hiatus after this and occasionally coming back to post more tutorials. I just have no time for trading and anything other than maintaining my town.

I’d also like to thank @sokecrossing because without their sweet Love Wins varsity qr (which is in my “acnl clothes” tag), I wouldn’t have decided to make my own version 😅
