I wanna preface this with a quick disclaimer - this isn’t directed at anyone specific, I love all of you guys and I’m posting this out of concern for our community as a whole. If you feel called out or hurt by this post, I’m sorry. *hugs*
Brace yourselves though, because we need to talk about this.
The anti-Butch Hartman spree that’s been going on? Guys, you need to ease off. A lot.
Somewhere along the line it became cool to push the Butch hate as far as possible? It’s treated as some kind of joke or something that’s acceptable because hey, ‘we all think Butch sucks’, when really it isn’t. What’s worse is that these actions have been met with positive responses. It’s becoming socially normalized, and that is not okay. That’s actually scary as crap.
Take a deep breath and step back. Look at what you’re doing. This is bullying. It’s not cool, and it’s not funny.
Even if you feel your dislike is justified, treating another human being in such a way is wrong– and unhealthy. It’s creating an angry atmosphere in the phandom that really saddens me as a long-time member. We all have our criticisms, and criticism is a good and valid part of creative communities, but there’s a distinction between taking issue with someone’s creative work and attacking the person themselves.
You don’t have to like Butch Hartman. Criticize his actions as a creator, have a discussion, even make jokes about it. But please, remember to treat him with basic respect. Don’t get nasty. Don’t be mean. Don’t stalk him looking for weaknesses to pick at. He may be a public figure as a creator and semi-celebrity, but he’s also a person.
Tumblr is a place that likes to talk about safe spaces - rejecting hateful speech, accepting those who are different and flawed, giving people a chance for acceptance – but ironically there’s a real struggle in extending that openness to people outside of the Tumblr subculture.
Come on guys, we’re better than this. You aren’t helping anyone this way. Hate doesn’t erase hate. It never does.
The Phandom has so much creativity and diversity of style and people and topics. We’ve built so much together, had a lot of fun and weathered all kinds of ups and downs over the decade-plus this show has been in existence–an existence, I might add, we owe to Butch Hartman.
So let it go, please. Let’s keep the tag (and our phandom) a positive space!
🔥 you feel suffocated extremely easily. you need space, both literally and metaphorically. you hate being too close to people and hate being in tight spaces. you need fresh air.
🔥 you often look at close relationships as too much effort, and prefer to spend time with people that don’t demand too much of you. no relationship is more important to you than your comfort.
🔥 routine is your worst nightmare. you feel happy in environments that allow you plenty of variety, and can’t stomach the idea of a nine-to-five job. if you’re doing the same thing every day, you’re prone to becoming restless and unlike yourself.
🔥 you love to learn, whether it be textbook learning or worldly learning. you are a fan of documentaries and reading, and expanding your knowledge makes you feel fulfilled.
🔥 you are often (unapologetically) late. you have a wandering mind and an absent one at that, and often forget you had appointments until you were already supposed to be there. and you usually have plenty an excuse to give for why you weren’t on time.
🔥 you’re sometimes perplexed by the emotions of others, and can’t comprehend why people get so invested in things. strong emotions genuinely confuse you.
🔥 you are always in the mindset that everything is going to be okay, and turn out the way that it’s supposed to. discouragement isn’t a feeling familiar to you.
There’s no room in my heart for hate, and no space in my mind for negative energy. I leave this disappointment in God’s hands and with faithful certainty I declare that His plan is so much better than all of this. Amen.
With the close of Season 2 coming up, we wanted to open up a new blog for Attack on Titan polls! Since there hasn’t been a character popularity poll run since 2015 for the tumblr fandom, we thought this would be a good opportunity to bring one back.
Has the anime changed your perspectives on certain characters? What about current events in the manga? We’d love to see how developments in both mediums have potentially changed which characters we love the most!
Take the 2017 Tumblr Character Popularity Poll!
A few simple things:
To avoid repeat voting or fraudulent voting, we will not be using a typical poll format with multiple choice buttons. As the @snk-popularity-poll did when they ran the 2015 poll, we will also be taking votes by ask or submissionsonly. This way we can ensure no one is spamming the vote and everything is accounted for and honest.
Votes submitted via ask will remain confidential.
Votes submitted as submissions will be published - use this as an opportunity to gush about your faves if you so choose!
We would also like to remain anonymous so as to avoid perceptions of bias. This is a 100% neutral zone without any judgement or bias. We just want to see how you guys feel about the series, characters, and so on!
You may submit up to 5 characters for this poll, but no more than that. If you do not want to submit up to 5, that is also okay. If you only want to vote for 1 character this is just fine! Each character can only get 1 vote per person.
If you accidentally send us a submission with more than 5 votes we will contact you to clarify which 5 you actually want to be accounted for.
All characters are eligible, even the ones that were around for all but 2 panels.
The deadline for this poll will be July 15th. Once that date is reached we will no longer take submissions and will prepare in revealing the results of the poll.
We will show the current results on a weekly basis every Saturday! For those who are curious about how a poll is unraveling, we will try and keep you guys in the loop as the poll is ongoing! Encourage your friends to vote too!
Please expect to see more polls in the future around various things. We love fandom, and we love to see what you guys love as well!
Remember that this is a fandom positive space. Hate will not be allowed.
Please submit your votes via ask orsubmission. Remember, everything will remain confidential. Thank you for your participation and please signal boost if you can! :D
Prompt: could you maybe do something with disabled!batmom. where batmom is in a wheelchair and you explore how that relates to the batman escapade, you could even have her interact with the justice league to redefine their definition of ‘hero’. thanks for writing for us love you! <3

Your life was a mish mash of simple facts. Your husband dressed up in a bat costume and fought crime: Fact. You had adopted children and allowed them to be superheros: Fact. Several of your children had died, and come back to life: Fact. Your husband snored like no tomorrow: Fact. Just because you were in a wheelchair did not mean you weren’t a deadly badass in your own right: Fact.
As you rolled your chair down the halls of the station, you knew you drew more than a few eyes. You’d made it a point to stay out of the station over the years. Gotham was your territory. Protecting the city was your mission, and that was big enough without adding in an entire universe too.
Right up until your husband landed his butt in surgery. The boys stand as you approach; three of them bend down to give you a kiss on the cheek, and one simply leans over. Resting your hands in your lap you ask, “What did he do this time?”
Jason smiles at you, “Took a bullet for Supes.”
You raise an eyebrow, “You mean the guy bullets literally bounce off of?”
Tim winces, “It might have been a kryptonite bullet.”
You sigh, and settle in for a wait. More than a few people pass by. There eyes drift over you, before continuing on. Each of your boys disappears for a few minutes before coming back showered and changed.
When Clark shows up, he stares at you, “Y/N I am so …”
You cut him off, “If you apologize Kent, you’re going to wish that bullet had hit you. Bruce is a big boy. He can make his own choices.” He says nothing. Simply, he smiles before kissing your cheek and saying, “Lois was hoping the family would come by for dinner next week. We just got the ramp fixed.”
You smile, “We’ll be there. Even if I have to bring Bruce kicking and screaming.”
Clark snorts, “Cause that just spells fun.”
You smile, and he walks off. Several other leaguers stop by to say hi; Barry, Diana, Shayera. When J’onn steps out of the operating room, he smiles at you before waving you in. You roll through the wide door way easily, and straight to your husband’s bed. He’s still sedated, but you take his hand, and simply wait.
He’s groggy but coherent, “You’re on the space station.”
You grin, “And here they said you were losing your touch.”
He stares at you, wether he’s not amused or simply to sedated to care, you’re not sure, “You hate space. With a burning passion. When I asked you to come up, you said not if your life depended on it.”
You smile at him, “It wasn’t my life, it was yours. Thanks for the ramps and the wide doorways by the way.”
He squeezed your hand, “Anything for you.”
You kiss his cheek, “I love you.”
He smiles, “I love you too; my own personal hero.” You raise an eyebrow at that, “You faced your fears.”
“Which fear is that?”
He smiles at you,“Being sucked into a space vacuum.”
You lean back into your chair, “That doesn’t make me a hero Bruce. It makes me an adult ”
“Yes. Maybe,” she replied. She paused, she thought about it for a second. “Not really, no. Not at all.”
“You have the right to hate him, you know?”
Her expression was calm, almost peaceful. Like the loud noise of the ocean after a huge storm. She said: “oh, I know that very well. Maybe if I could it would make it easier on me, but I don’t, I can’t.”
He asked full of curiosity then, “why?”
“You see, when someone makes you so happy, to the point where you see yourself with that person for the rest of your life and no one else, how is it fair to hate him? How can you do that? He brought so much joy to my life, so much more than I could ever expect, and…” She just stopped talking.
He waited for her to continue but she didn’t, so he asked. “And what?”
“I’ve never been one to be ungrateful. You see, you can hurt me, destroy me, leave me, cut me out of your life, but the good things will always stay with me. The good times, what we’ve been through together, that is part of the package that we call life. It’s not fair to just throw that away and try to forget. It’s not about him, it’s about me.”
He understood. He just watched her quietly moving from the couch to the window, she was just staring at the sky.
“You love with everything you have inside you, I see what it means now: it doesn’t leave space for hate, and especially not for him,” he concluded. “You really did love him.”
She kept looking at the sky outside the window in a sunny day on that late summer. After what seemed like hours, she softly said: “I did. I really did.”
I do, she thought. I really do.
She hoped that wherever he was and whatever he was doing in his life, in that exact moment, that thought reached him and his heart ached for what it seemed no apparent reason to him. She hoped he knew, somehow, somewhere.
HI, can I request one with RFA+Saeran+V, like moments that they would have with their kid/kids? Maybe taking their kid/kids to work, coming home after a long day but even though they're tired, they still play with their kid/kids. These are just some examples and the kid/kids could be any age(as long as they count as a kids.) Thank you for all the Headcanons, some of these have helped me got through my depression and I am way better now because of you guys. *BIG HUGS FROM MY SIDE OF THE WORLD!*
So glad we could make you a little happier! *GIVES BIGGER HUG FROM OUR SIDE OF THE WORLD* Hope you enjoy these~
His daughter had been spending way too much time with Jumin’s son
So, Zen wanted some quality time with her, at least for one day
He wakes her up one morning and takes her out for breakfast at a little coffee shop
They have a cute little breakfast while they talk about life and school
Zen pulls out his phone and takes a bunch of selfies
His daughter may have picked up some traits from him and joined into his selfie shenanigans
They use so many filters, and her favorite one is the wolf one, since Zen makes so many jokes about him being one
It’s all going great until her friends from school happen to pass by
“You didn’t tell me your dad was so…hot.”
Thankfully, Zen had been paying for the meal, so he didn’t hear, but his daughter was mortified
She hurried Zen out of there when he was done
For most of the day, they visited different shops and walked around town together
When they got home at night, they put on masks together and put on a movie–that Zen wasn’t in
Zen fell asleep in the middle of it, and his daughter took the advantage and took a bunch of pictures and selfies
Zen looked ridiculous with the mask on and his mouth hanging open
She sent several to her mother for both of their amusement
He had a day off and it was a rainy day
Thankfully, he had an entire playroom for his little boy
Yoosung had recently bought this huge foam blogs and several packs of them
So the two of them spent the entire afternoon transforming the room into the boy’s little house
There were walls that separated off a tiny living room, dining room, kitchen, and bedroom
He dragged Yoosung along in all the rooms
The first stop was the kitchen, complete with fake food and fake pots and pans
He made Yoosung a plastic omurice before serving him in the dining room
Yoosung plays along for the whole hour, even though his knees are killing him from being on the floor the whole time
The kid gets really excited and tries to run into another room
Unfortunately, his excitement causes him to run into one of the foam walls
A domino effect later, the whole foam house is on the ground and the kid is crying because he messed everything up
Yoosung tries to calm him down, “No, no! You’re just super strong. Like Spiderman!”
To cheer him up, Yoosung changes his son into a spiderman onesie
He then lifts him up in the air and lets his son pretend he’s flying
The kid is doing the spiderman thing with his fingers while Yoosung jumps from place to place around the house, the kid in his arms
Eventually, the kid gets tired and so does Yoosung, so they just take a nap together
It was bring your kid to work day at C&R
Jaehee really didn’t want to bring her seven year old daughter, but there was no school that day and she couldn’t find a babysitter
So she brought her along
Her daughter was in awe by the place and kept asking Jaehee questions about what she did
Jaehee didn’t want her to get bored while she was doing paperwork, so she gave her little tasks of her own
She took a big pile of junk paper and set beside the shredder, teaching her daughter how to use it
The girl was fascinated with watching the paper shred into little tiny pieces
“Mom, this is so cool!”
“Yeah, honey, it is–No! Not that paper!”
After that, Jaehee gives her the job of putting stamps on envelopes to be mailed
It killed her pride, but Jaehee wanted to do something special for her daughter
So she asked Jumin to award the little girl with a certificate
She didn’t expect Jumin to give an entire speech in the conference room about how there has never been a better paper shredder in the company
What made it worse is that her daughter has this huge admiration for Jumin now
One of his business deals went through and the client gifted Jumin with this huge Lego Star Wars ship
It was an odd gift, but Jumin thought his ten year old would like it
So, he gave it to him that night and promised to build it with him as soon as he got home from work the next day
The son was so excited
He opened the set and separated the legos by color and type and waited patiently for Jumin by the coffee table
As soon as the keys jingle from the door, the son is darting forward to greet his dad
Jumin keeps his word and they get to work
He didn’t expect it to be so complicated…
Jumin is so confused by all the instructions…and why they are pictures instead of written words
“Hey, Dad! Look!”
Jumin slowly lowers the huge paper and sees his son one-fourth of the way done
Eventually, Jumin tries actual building, but his long fingers make it difficult to put the tiny pieces together
The kid crawls in his lap and helps his dad as they build certain parts together
Hours later and they finally finish
Jumin is so proud, since his son managed to figure out the foreign language of instructions and finish
He wants to take a picture, so his son stands on the couch and does a little peace sign next to their creation
Jumin goes out with his son and buys some more smaller lego sets
MC comes home with her living room full of Star Wars spaceships…
His eight year old daughter came home from school a little pouty
She tells him that she has a science fair soon and she needs to build something for it
He suggests a solar system, and she responds by pulling a disgusted face
“Space is boring though!”
Seven gasps loudly and promises to show her she’s wrong
Knowing he can get a little extra when it comes to projects, so she emphasizes that she only needs the simplest thing
He tells her to go draw a picture of the solar system and he would help with coloring or something
She brings it back to him and he just spreads it across the table, “Great! This is the blueprint.”
Knowing she can’t stop him, she just goes along with whatever he has planned
They spend the day building with whatever equipment he has in his house
He gives her a bunch of space facts as they’re building the planets together and putting together the rods
When it comes time to a snack break, he takes her out to the store and buys some HBC and Dr. Pepper
“I use to live on this when I was younger,” he told her.
He sees sparkles in her eyes when she first tries them together and he’s so proud
They finish the project together throughout the week, and both end up really liking spending the quality time together
And she doesn’t hate space anymore, which was a plus
But then he gets a call from a teacher the next day voicing their concerns
Apparently, a solar system complete with lights, moon phases, and a robotic orbit implied that she might have cheated
Seven didn’t care that she got disqualified, and he took her out for ice cream to celebrate anyway
Unfortunately, Saeran’s six year old son had the same health tendencies as his father
That meant he got sick pretty often and had to stay home from school
Saeran saw he was getting pretty bummed out about it
So he decides to make that sick day as fun as possible
He brings a bunch of books to the bed and lets his son pick one out
He reads as many as he can, but in the middle of one, his son requests a puppet show
Saeran is hesitant, but he can’t resist his son when he looks so pale and tired
So he builds a little theatre and draws faces on some old socks
He begins reading from the book again, this time with the puppets talking
“And then the king said–”
“No, Daddy, you have to do the voices!”
“Oh…sorry…Ahem.” He proceeds in a higher pitched voice
He actually does finish the story–voices and all–and the kid is laughing by the time he’s done
Saeran will put on his son’s favorite movies and move him over to the couch
He melts a little when his son snuggles up to him for warmth
He takes his daughter to the playground since it’s a nice day
But she’s very shy so she ends up being alone on a swing at one end of the park
He feels bad, but he doesn’t want to make her uncomfortable and push her at the other kids
So he joins her
First he takes to slides, but she’s too scared to go down the really long slides
So he sets her on his lap and goes down with her–even if he hits his head a few times
He plays that game where he pretends he’s in trouble as he’s lying backwards on the slide and holding out his hand while she pulls him up
After awhile, she’s not scared anymore so she tries to impress him by walking up the slide
But she ends up slipping and going straight to the ground, and he has to get wood chips out of her hair
The other kids are attracted to the fun the two seem to be having
V somehow ends up as a jungle gym with children climbing him and asking to play with them
By the time they leave, his daughter has made quite a few friends, but she looks up at V and grabs his hand, “I had the most fun with you, Daddy!”
