The odd thing about this form of communication is that you’re more likely to talk about nothing than something. But I just want to say that all this nothing has meant more to me than so many somethings.
no offence but charlie was right abt pepe silvia, what kind of small company is getting that much mail just for one dude..smth was fucky and charlie got fired bc he was too close to the truth and that’s the mf tea on that
thoughts on the current state of the meme economy?
honestly, i think we’re heading towards a recession. with trump as president, it becomes vanilla to use him as the subject of Mainstream Memeing. same goes for major celebrity events, such as the oscars. where are the pure shitpost memes??? where are the good video memes????? what of organic memeing???? with the loss of vine, we now look to instagram for the spread of video memeing and honestly, that is a sad, sad replacement. i look to twitter for salvation.
Ok I have had enough of this anon hate. I see friends getting it, I see writers and blogs that I admire getting it. Hell I even see book blogs getting hate mail!!!
Now I do not get hate mail, aside from the one Anon who misinterpreted a comment made to a dear friend and accused me of bullying her, and numerous other people. I have never bullied anyone. I was a victim of (brutal) bullying in school, which got so bad that it wasn’t safe for me to go to school. So I would never bully anyone. But I am quick to defend and offer up kind words to those who I see getting bullied. But there is a reason that I don’t get hate mail… I’m not a popular blog…..
The way I see hate mail…. if you get it, it means that you are doing something right. You are becoming a (or are) a popular blog. And people get jealous. So they attack you with vicious, hurtful words because they are jealous and/or are unhappy in their own lives an want to take it out on someone. The point is, hate mail is (usually) because you have an active, popular blog and you post a lot of fics. People get jealous. The want to make you angry and hurt you.
Don’t give them that power. Ignore their messages, turn off anon if you must. But don’t let them win. You are strong, you are talented and all us writers know how hard it is too write… so don’t ever let anyone tell you your writing sucks because dammit some people have no idea how hard it is too write!!!! Having story in your head and getting it down on paper is HARD. And I applaud everyone who is able to do so!!
Anons… I’m sorry for whatever is going on in your life that is causing you to lash out at people like that. Instead of sending hate mail, try reaching out to one of the blogs that you are targeting. I bet any one of them would be willing to talk to you and give you advice.
But please think about this: One day when you have kids, or grand kids, and they are being bullied… they come to you, crying on and wanting to know why someone would ever do that to a person…. what are you going to say? What are you going to feel?? I bet you anything that you will regret all the pain your hurtful messages caused when you see the direct result of bullying, happening to someone you love.
Words are powerful. They can build you up or tear you down. So please… STOP WITH THE HATE MAIL.
Do you really want to send a message that say’s how ugly a person is? Or how much of a terrible writer they are? or worse yet, telling them to kill themselves? (Yes, I have seen such hate mail). Before you hit send, THINK!!!! Think of how you would feel if you got such hate mail. You would be devastated!!! So WHY SEND IT TO SOMEONE ELSE??? Think before you send!!! PLEASE!!
Tumblr really needs to work out a way to stop the hate mail. If you are going to send an ask saying for someone to kill themselves, it should be that you CAN’T send such a message. Or make it easier for a blog to find out who is sending the hate mail so they can be blocked and reported. Because it really has to stop!! I’ve seen blogs gets messages about anything and everything from complaining about the bloggers hair color. And the amount of followers the blogger has. About their writing… It has all got to stop!!! Because at the end of the day, when I look back on life, I want to know that I did not spread hate…. what do you want to look back on?
Instead of spreading hate, spread the love. My mom is the nicest person you will ever meet, and I have watched her throughout my whole life… and I try to be like her. I have seen what being nice and treating people right gets you in life. And I have seen what being rude and mean get you…. so I always try my best to be the nicest person that I can be…. and it makes me a happier person.
Anytime Hunk pets Keith on the head he starts purring.
It’s not a purr, not really. Hunk’s family had cats back on Earth and he knows what a purr sounds and feels like. But it’s ridiculous really, how weak Keith is to Hunk’s fingers combing through his hair; the sounds he makes are all the proof Hunk needs.
Maybe it has to do with being a galra, or part galra, he muses. Maybe, but he doesn’t dare to point it out or experiment with it; yet. Their allies from the Blade of Marmora are friendly enough, but also, he feels like their walls need a little more tearing down before he can ask those kinds of questions. He’s been working on making that happen, something that has the side-effect of making Hunk’s food in the Castle of Lions even better than it was.
Keith makes another small, breathy sound, almost tapering off into a whine, and Hunk resumes moving his hand. His boyfriend might feel embarrassed, especially if anyone but Hunk is around, but Hunk himself loves it. The sounds that let him know that Keith is happy.
So he continues running his hand through the dark hair, basking in the little sounds he knows he can never get enough of.
