going to have to


I don’t want to sleep


anonymous asked:

wait, so are you guys antis? or is it just a matter of not wanting discourse on this blog? I mean I understand if it's the second answer, but also I feel as if that excludes fans, do you see what I mean?

Ok, so I knew we’d get this ask sooner or later, the other mods are not as into the voltron fandom as I am meaning they are healthy and they have other interests lmao, but I, myself, am an anti and I see Shiro as 25 and the other paladins as 16-17 and Pidge as 14. But I don’t want to get into some huge argument about this because that’s not what the blog is for, it’s for posting funny quotes about the paladins and I see that it’s best to try to stay out of all the discourse as much as we can since there’s already a lot of toxic shit in this fandom. So, yeah it’s kinda for both reasons? I don’t want to get too deep into this

TL;DR: Let’s just keep this as platonic and safe as we can because I’m not in the mood to get into any fights on this blog, feel free to argue with me somewhere else

Also, real talk for a second.

I don’t know how many people who comment on our YouTube videos read my blog, but if by chance you do, give Nate a fucking break, please.

Every single time we upload a V3 video someone bitches about him doing something–and it’s usually a complaint we’ve addressed before (e.g., we don’t talk to every character because our streams are already 5 hours+ and we’re trying to keep my voice from blowing out; or, we discuss theories and make jokes because that’s how we enjoy playing; or, we take breaks for food or the bathroom or whatever because it is a livestream and we are humans and not robots who spit out content for free).

Yes, Nate doesn’t do the actual translation, but he does manage the Twitch and YouTube channels, splices multiple pieces of video together when the stream hiccups, stores all of the raffle goods in his apartment and keeps track of who bid on what, and invests a lot of his own money into xxiil3gendaryzetsubou.

Not that I don’t pay too, since we try to split stream-related expenses down the middle, but when it comes to extra stuff, Nate often takes a bulk of the financial responsibility. Guys…that poster giveaway we did? Nate bought those posters out of pocket. Our newly built streaming rig? Nate paid for most of it himself. Even some of our raffle stock ends up being things Nate bought for himself but then donated because he figured someone out there would enjoy it more.

So chill, please. The YT channel and streams are not our job. It’s a thing we do for fun. If our style doesn’t jive with you, then that’s completely fine, but quit bashing a guy who spends a lot of time, effort, and money on something because he isn’t catering to your personal taste.

There’s a difference between a jocular Nate please and continued, 100% serious whining about his involvement.

me singing softly: she sits beside me like a silhouette
hard candy dripping on me ‘til my feet are wet
& now she’s all over me, it’s like I paid for it
It’s like I paid for it, I’m gonna pay for this
