god what is with this fandom

@mushfromnewsies 

Nope. Sorry babe but your attempt at shaming me will not fly. Here’s why: for three years your friends (the same group of snarky individuals who claim to love David but mock him whenever the opportunity arises) have either laughed with or excused those who call Duchovny a potato. And never once have you or any other apologist on this hellsite for that matter have stepped forward to CALL OUT those who perpetuate unnecessary DD hate. You want to be a ddga fan in this fandom? Then yeah you gotta voice the outright bias. I have. Numerous times. For both D & G. Yes, since 2013! Stalk my blog’s archives and anons and personal posts idgaf. Please go read what i have ‘flipped my lid’ over. God, I welcome it! 

Contrary to what the snarky few believe, I am a decent human being. I don’t go looking to hurt fellow fans on purpose. I don’t start cruel threads and tag them with Gillian Anderson or David Duchovny or Gillovny so that their fans will see it and be upset by it. Not my style. And I certainly do not pretend to love Gillian and then the following day mock her intelligence or her looks or the fact that she is aging like the rest of the world. 

The problem with this fandom is that somehow only a small fraction of big voices have been allowed to voice their bad opinions. And we are all just supposed to follow them like fucking brainless robots. Sorry, but HELL NO. I will not comply.

Those who I call “fandom bitches” have either lost my respect or never had it. For reasons I have explained plenty of times, with my name and url attached. I never once have sent anon hate. I, at the very least, tried to speak with some who were or are mutuals, in private, when I felt there was a scrap of humanity left with which I could communicate. A few blew me off completely and returned to their shitty ways, purposely irritating/offending Duchovny fans especially. So, I stand by my judgement of these fake DD fans. They are NO friends of mine or David’s or Gillian’s. So they can stop deluding themselves.

As for Pickled Pete, the dude is a sourpuss. Plain and simple. Gillian’s choice. Fine. It’s her life. Not mine. But he has no place other than a significant other?? within our fandom. None of us actually know much about him. David, on the other hand, is 1 of a 2 co-starship in this fandom. The X-Files fandom. Not The Crown fandom. To constantly criticize Duchovny for things he said in 1998 is a bitch move & a majority of you out there know it. The man, like any other person, has grown significantly since his late 20s and early 30s. So has Gillian. Neither is a god, free from flaws and various phases in their lives. Shit happens. They have discussed this publicly. How filming 14 hr days, all week/year round, for years, nonstop, took it’s toll on their psyche & on their relationships. And yet here we are, 20 some odd years later, STILL dredging up old quotes from 1998 and calling David a potato in retaliation like WTF?? Who are these so-called fans anyway? They are haters, that’s what. Hating on D since the 90s and holding grudges against him for whatever reason.

Want to know my crime? I have called PM Pickled Pete like a handful of times. Do I accuse him of abuse. No. Do I criticize his writing. No. Do I write nasty things and tag him on social media. No. 

Anyway, this is boring now. David Duchovny is a beautiful, sentimental man who has given his fans and costars and family nothing but love and ❤

Apples and oranges. There’s no comparison. David deserves a helluv a lot more apologies and respect than some dude that’s virtually unknown to any phile! 

shaming people for “cringy” interests is so gross oooh my god so someone likes this one piece of media more than anything how about you just…. let them? it brings someone joy what the fuck is your problem. eat some grass.

The only summary of Battle City you’ll ever need, even if it’s a tad bit inaccurate

tbh one of the most shocking things this season is that tyler’s fans have p much stayed in their lanes and been fairly chill and that tyler has v much made it clear that he’s there to help melissa and kara be all that they can be–that this is her story and just v supportive and that he is not the protagonist–and then you have the newcomer who is calling himself a “hero” and even in interviews making it seem as if he is the protagonist and having the very annoying fans who hate kara

a handy note for fandom
  • correct: this is my interpretation.
  • incorrect: what i believe is fact and everyone should be forced to accommodate me in what they say and write. my arbitrary opinion can be used to police other people's work, because if they don't cater to my tenuous conclusions they're obviously insensitive and problematic

in case anyone’s wondering why god allows suffering, here’s a google comparison of the search frequency of the words “reylo” and “finnrey”

(btw first is over the past 5 years, second one is since the time tfa came out, and the third one is in the past 1 year)

this is so fucking unreal.

Guys.

How many times do I have to say this? I am begging you, PLEASE, if you want an Unknown Route how hard is it to be supportive of people who championed for a V route? 

Am I upset Saeran didn’t get a route (yet)? I am. 

But you know what I am going to be more upset about? If we end up without a Saeran route because Cheritz sees the behavior of some members in the fandom and decides it would be too much of a risk to their brand for his route to ever come to fruition. 

So please, please, please, please, in the name of God Seven, enchoi the upcoming content and PLAY NICE. It costs 0 hourglasses to not be a jerk. 

  • <p> <b>Anti:</b> I don't like straight ships because they're not equal and the women aren't on the same ground as the men.<p/><b>Me:</b> That's fine I understand but in canon the ship isn't like that and just because a ship is same sex doesn't mean it's not toxic.<p/><b>Anti:</b> STFU let me have my lesbians you homophobic * everything but a child of God *.

anonymous asked:

man I don't think you can really say bro is brainwashed but gamzee's just evil when you can argue that gamzee's also possessed by cal. they even have really similar relationships to how he's formed, ie part of their souls exist inside lil cal already. which is probably a good explanation for how lil cal is able to brainwash them when he doesn't brainwash, like, dave, who is around him his whole childhood. idk, I just think gamzee's more complicated than "evil ass hole"

As it happens, Gamzee has a line I never gave much weight to before noticing Bro’s SAW interest that I’m more inclined to take seriously now, that suggests Gamzee and Bro’s relationship to Cal WAS intrinsically different:

But even if Bro is kind of a noble captor figure holding Cal back, I still wouldn’t think it excuses any of what he put Dave through. He’s still an awful dude.

As for Gamzee, here’s the main problem with reading him as “just” brainwashed.

Gamzee doesn’t require Lil Cal’s presence to go evil. In fact, Gamzee doesn’t seem to require ANYTHING to turn evil. 
But even if like, Doc Scratch ALWAYS teleports Lil Cal into Gamzee’s presence to trigger his personality shift, I don’t think it would matter.
The weight of the sheer SCALE of Gamzee’s devotion cements his place as an ultimately willing accomplice/acolyte to Caliborn’s Dark Carnival. 

And it kind of makes Gamzee fucking terrifying and a fantastic villain.

I’ll explain my reasoning here.

We know for a fact that Gamzee snaps and kills all his friends in at least one Doomed timeline. This is the source for half the code used in the creation of Doc Scratch. There’s no implication that Lil Cal is involved here at all. 

But again, let’s assume Lil Cal was here again. It doesn’t matter.

Because there is canonically, explicitly, no timeline in the history of Gamzee where Gamzee ever, ever, EVER chooses to rebel. Gamzee Makara simply does not ever choose his friends over Lord English.  In any timeline. Ever.
How do I know?

Lets talk about Ghosts for a minute. The fandom has historically kind of taken these guys for granted, and loose fandom consensus is that they aren’t coherent/who has what ghosts is arbitrary. This is incorrect!

Pretty much everybody in the Bubbles that should have alt!ghosts does, including Meenah and Aranea, the two characters who’s alt!ghosts are typically presumed “Missing”. 

This is important. The Ghosts kind of give us very low-key character development, and contextualize the characters for us. For example, Eridan is an absolute irredeemable bastard in the Alpha timeline. But in a God Tier iteration of themselves, Eridan and Feferi seemingly come to friendlier terms. In another, there’s suggestions Eridan makes up with Feferi and Sollux. In yet another, he seems to be Trans or exploring femininity at least.

The point is, there’s a certain fluidity to Eridan’s potential. Still terrible in the comic, but it’s important to remember that Eridan didn’t CHOOSE to be trapped in the meteor with Jack, or to be born to Alternia’s power system, or to be trapped in the Alpha Timeline. 

It’s important to remember these things because in Homestuck, someone with power–Lord English–deliberately and willfully chose those things FOR him. Eridan’s lives are lived in response to that imposed power structure.
These factors don’t redeem him completely necessarily

But anyway, the fact that the rest of the cast have coherent quantum expressions means there are only three real exceptions–three characters who either don’t have any ghosts at all, or should have more ghosts than they do. 

The first is Caliborn, who’s timeline has exactly one deviation from the Alpha–apparently caused by John’s retcon. This riddle’s solved easily enough:
Predomination doesn’t leave a ghost to appear in the bubbles at all.
When Calliope says she ate his soul, she means that literally. 
Caliborn’s cheating in the Alpha Timeline is indeed the only reason Calliope exists in the bubbles at all.

(This, by the way, explains a lot about the relationship between Caliborn’s soul and Gamzee/Arquis’ in the Lord English. He predominated over them, too.)

The second is Vriska, who only has a single ghost in (Vriska). This is really weird, because we literally know for a fact she dies in more than one doomed timeline! As with the two Calliopes, I think this is down to John’s retcon doing some weird entanglement nonsense to Vriska’s quantum existence.
The point is: Where others have a palette of possibility, Vriska has two extremely polarized halves. Schrodinger’s Vriska. 

Important to mention that just like Eridan, the structure of the Alpha Timeline that limits potential Vriskas is IMPOSED ONTO HER. Vriska didn’t want anything about the way she was raised or where she was born. She didn’t ask John and Terezi to retcon her into this bizarre state. Both Vriskas, like the rest of the cast, are rolling with the punches LE has seen fit to give. 

Except for Gamzee.

Hussie literally tells us Gamzee never dies. His single non-Alpha Timeline death in [S] Game Over is retconned by John, and Hussie suggests it straight up doesn’t count. But that presents a problem.

There are thousands upon thousands of Doomed troll timelines. How is it that Gamzee specifically never ever EVER dies? Well, there’s only one real way that a Non-Time player can survive a Doomed timeline, that we know of:

Dream self merger. By going to sleep as the last player present in Sburb, the Doomed Rose from Davesprite’s timeline triggers a game mechanic that ends her timeline completely and merges her consciousness with that of Alpha Rose through their dreamselves. 

If Gamzee survives his doomed timelines, this is the only possible way how.
And collapsing all of his potential instances into a single Alpha identity certainly sounds like the reduction of possibility commonly attributed to the Rage aspect.
But what that means is that to move on to the Alpha, every Doomed Gamzee must inevitably either snap and kill all the other trolls, or somehow outlast them. 

And it means that if any Gamzee had EVER, in the entire spectrum of plausibility the Alpha timeline affords, EVER been inclined to rebel against LE–then we would know. Because somewhere out there, that at least Hussie could see, there would be a Ghost to show for it.

But there isn’t. Similar in this respect only to Caliborn, Gamzee simply has no alternate deviations because he doesn’t want them. He chooses the path that leads to Lord English freely and willingly, over and over and over again. 

And like Caliborn…

Gamzee does this because he wants to. 

Gamzee doesn’t BELIEVE he’s going to become his own God–he knows it for a fact. He sees it in Lil Cal’s mangled soul. And he embraces that truth wholeheartedly, throwing himself into the acolyte role from then onwards and presumably following instructions Doc Scratch gives him throughout Act 6. 

Which we can talk about some other time. The point is: Gamzee chooses all this. Whether or not Lil Cal causes him to is beside the point, because there is not and never will be any timeline where Gamzee chooses to resist. 

Gamzee is the ultimate in shitty cosmic nazi religious zealots, and devoted to the very power structure that causes every other character to suffer so. There are no mitigating factors for him as there are for everyone else but Caliborn.
At the end of the day, he’s evil.
Bad clown. Worst enemy. 

we tried hard to stand it. we

were barely human. we were bodies

stacked with pain. we never said sorry,
didn’t wanna. you were always drunk
& sad & too far gone for that. I was
terrible & I didn’t care about being better.
but now you’re standing in my bedroom.
now you’re scared & you say you
wanna get into heaven. you wanna

stand in some form of light that isn’t
filtered through clouds of crude smoke.
good luck, & who knows, maybe god
will forgive us for all of this. the stones
we threw, the ankles we bit, the people
we kissed. showing up at the gates
with our tails between our legs.

starved & mad, two dogs who missed
their last meal, licking our wounds &
itching for a fair fight.

there so much to get mad about.
go ahead pick something. imagine
if it helped. imagine if mattered.
I didn’t cry when you left. I just
circled ‘round the block & waited
for you to come back. because
you always do. because I know
how this goes. we pretend we
aren’t the same & then we realize
we are & we pretend we don’t care.
we need each other & that’s all we do.

it’s crazy the things you do for a friend.

it’s crazy the way you’ll act for love.

  • Clarke: ROOOOAAAANNNN!
  • Roan: Oh hi, Clarke! How's the first half of my OTP doi-
  • Clarke: ROAN! WHAT HAVE YOU DONE WITH BELLAMY?!
  • Roan: Not much. He's just chillin' in Polis. Eating ice cream and watching the sunset. Probs thinking of you.
  • Clarke: You mean... he's not... hurt?
  • Roan: WHAT?! Clarke, you seriously think that I would hurt him?
  • Clarke: Um... Well... Yes... ?

  • Clarke: ... What's a Bellarke?
  • Roan: You know... You, Bellamy...
  • Clarke: .........................
  • Roan: You seriously don't know?! You're like the only one at this point.
  • Echo: Ummm... I also don't know what a Bellarke is.
  • Roan: You wouldn't! You're a plot device to freak fans out and make them think that their OTP might not happen. But true Bellarkers know otherwise.

  • L.exa and Finn from their graves: Even we knew, Clarke.
  • Clarke: So... what you're saying is... Bellamy and I should be together?
  • Echo: Well, I mean not necessari-
