how can people not ship them

What’s with all the Bluepulse hate? I looked on this tag to celebrate the new title not be accused of supporting pedophilia!
Bluepulse is in no way pedophilic. A relationship between a 13 and 16 year old is not a pedophilic one. They are both teenagers that are still in school and are probably only two school years apart. I honestly do not understand the argument that it is in any way abusive, pedophilic etc. I can understand how an age gap may turn you off the ship and perhaps you wouldn’t date someone with a three year age gap yourself, but that in no way makes this ship pedophilic. A three year age gap is not a big one. I know people who have dated with a three year age gap at school and none of them were ever accused of being a pedophile. The only thing that is wrong or illegal would be if at this age they were engaging in sexual activities and given their characters and personalities I find that incredibly unlikely. Besides in the new series they will have skipped another 5 years and the ages will be 18 and 21. Are you going to accuse a relationship between a 18 and 21 year old of being pedophilic?

You know how Daisy and Adam were rumoured to have "forced dinners" while shooting TLJ? Adam confirmed these dinners were a real thing on Larry King. I can't help picturing them growing so confortable in each other's presence Daisy drops the ship name "reylo" on him. "There are people who already caught on" she'd smile and try to explain shipping to Adam and he'd just go "Do they know they're cousins?" in that deadpan way of his. But then he'd crack a smirk and Daisy has a good laugh.

HA! That’s so cute! :) It’s certainly a possibility!

So dereks post today.... some are tweeting brettonio is done and to move on. How did you take it? Is it over completely or at least for awhile? My heart is broken... my do people hate this ship so much?

I don’t think people necessarily hate them, but it can get annoying when people keep asking about Brettonio. It’s clear to see that Derek does not want to give an update on Brettonio’s future cause he never said it himself that it was over for good or to let it go they weren’t right for each other. 

My take on this is that it’s gonna take more than an episode to fix them, maybe half a season. Obviously they couldn’t focus on fixing them as soon as they broke up. Then why would they break them up? Haha. So, on season 6 I feel like on the first episode it may focus on them. Maybe not cause it ends on a cliffhanger so I’m not sure what’s gonna happen. But I truly believe Brettonio will be one of the personal cliffhangers. Just cause Antonio isn’t on the episode (as we know it right now) doesn’t mean it can’t happen. For all we know, something could happen, Sylvie could say she’s tired of being without Antonio and for a stupid reason, but before she could send Antonio a text about meeting up to talk the alarm goes off. Or hell Antonio could send her a text. I’m just saying, we can’t rule out that possibility but also to my knowledge no couple in the one Chicago franchise got back together on the season finale anyway cause the seasons finale are always huge. So they focus on everyone and this season finale doesn’t seem to be any different.

In a way I think what Derek said is bullshit cause Sylvie never asked Antonio to put her first. She knew he had kids, and she knew he loved his job. Come on, she had to know parts of the reason why he and Laura divorced, so to think Antonio would put her first when he couldn’t do that to Laura would be stupid. And not only that, but Sylvie can’t put Antonio first. Sure, she doesn’t have kids or an ex-husband, but she also has a demanding job. it may not be as stressful as Antonio’s (although sometimes it can be) but it can still take her away from Antonio too. So like I said, it is bullshit. However, I have a feeling that something may happen to Sylvie, something minor that may make Antonio jealous, or something major like her getting hurt, that would make him realize he’s being an idiot. 

Some people may not like Brettonio but guess what? Not everyone likes Dawsey, and not everyone likes Linstead, or Burzek, etc. doesn’t mean that’s gonna keep them apart. If the writers like them, and if they are getting a good feedback for them, they don’t care about that. You can’t have a popular couple without a few haters. (Might I add saying this that I love every one Chicago couple haha) Besides, some of those people still want Antonio and Laura back together and it isn’t happening. 

All I’m saying is, if you’re looking for signs of Brettonio getting back together from Derek, please don’t. He won’t let it slip up about them getting back together. We just have to wait for the season finale to see what’s going on. Just stay patient and keep the hope alive.

Someone else on tumblr pointed out that PASSENGERS might have been a more meaningful movie if it was about just THE ONE person dealing with being alone on the ship for the rest of their life.  And if, to cope, they go through and make it a point to learn everything they can about all of the other people on the ship.

And I just keep thinking about this idea.

Fandom Fic Rec Days

The Fandom Fic Rec Days are back!

It is easy to make people look at art; all you need is a reblog. But when it comes to make people want to read fanfiction, it can get just a little more tricky.

To give writers more recognition, and to celebrate their stories, we’ve decided to organize the Fic Rec Days.

On February 10th, 11th, and 12th, you’re invited to rec your favourite fics, from the all time faves to the WIPs you’re currently enjoying.

How? In any way you want!

  • Create a post saying why people should read the fic!
  • Draw some fanart!
  • Create graphics/aesthetics!
  • Make a fic rec list!
  • Make a mix!
  • And so on.

Anything, really; there’s no way of rec’ing worth less than another.

This way, you will:

  1. Promote writers’ fics, and maybe get them new readers.
  2. Make their day, they will be super happy!
  3. Maybe encourage them to write more (win-win!)

Any rules/extra information?

  • Tag your posts with #ficrecdays
  • Tag your fandom/ship.
  • You can always queue if you’re not available!
  • Readers, please consider leaving a comment on the fics you liked!

Above all else, have fun, make people happy (writers and new readers alike!)

Reblog to spread the word, and see you then! :D

how do people just stop shipping larry ? im genuinely curious like how do you stop feeling so overwhelmed over them ? how do you stop looking at them fondly ? how do you just forget everything and move on ? honestly i can think about stuff that happened years ago and still be like, “wow they really … did that …”, i still cry over larry moment videos and songs related to them ??? still the one, home, i want to break free, etc. = automatically sobbing, the tattoos still fuck me up !!! these two have a part of my soul forever man im never going anywhere.

It is becoming crystal clear that anyone whose job it is to work on or cover shows with a large and vocal fandom are getting fed up with the way “fans” act on social media… and apparently in person, too. The Once Upon a Time fandom is practically ground zero for this appalling behavior.

These fans act like they are owed something, they hurl insults and approach everything from an extremely biased point of view. I fear that the only way for anyone to deal with it is to either longer engage with fans on social media or just delete their accounts. It wouldn’t surprise me if at cons they follow the style of the Supernatural cons where questions are submitted and pre chosen and fans get even less access for their money.

We were given these amazing platforms to communicate directly with the cast and crew and media outlets and so many people were just downright awful about it. Manners are apparently optional when it comes to online communication. 

I don’t understand how you can idolize someone .. listen to them say that they want the ship wars to stop and to just be nice to each other … and then just continue with business as usual - attacking anyone who dares enjoy something that you have deemed unacceptable.

Just a reminder:

The problem with Spirk

…isn’t actually Spirk.  At least not for me.  I’m down with Spirk; I see it, hell; I ship it.  

The problem with Spirk for me is that so many people who write Spirk just don’t get McCoy.  He winds up shunted aside, barely present, as if he were no more interesting than the scalpel he wields– or even worse, he gets characterized as a shallow racist asshole who is tolerated only because he can patch up the bondmates when they need it.  He’s frequently written as an unrelenting annoyance, a total jerk who treats both of them like shit, especially Spock.

When I get into a story like that, it doesn’t matter how nice the Spirk is; I don’t enjoy it.  It’s not captured what’s important to me about Trek.  Even if they’re not all having sex together, all members of the triumvirate should fundamentally, deeply care about one another.  McCoy loves Kirk; he loves Spock.  When he’s a jerk it’s for a reason– to protect himself from harm, to goad one of them to do something McCoy thinks would be needful or healthy (like confess to/release some emotional baggage)… not just because he’s a nasty, unfeeling prick who is, unfortunately, necessary to wield a protoplaser when the IMPORTANT ones get hurt.

He can be misguided and inappropriate, yes– but nastiness isn’t all there is to him.

If McCoy weren’t more than that, he’d have been put off the Enterprise a LONG time ago.

how can people cry “FETISHIZATION!!!!” immediately at the fetishization of non-Asian POC but are completely fine with sexualizing k-pop stars all they want, have entire blogs dedicated to shipping them in real life, borderline stalk them into their personal lives, and treat them as if they were gods just because they’re asian as if that doesn’t count as fetishization, too? 

do you not think Asians count as a race that can be fetishized? or is it because “i’M POC TOO!!!!!!!!” as if your experience with oppression means that you can contribute to the oppression of another group? that you’d target another race with the same thing you despise people doing to yourself? or is it because you’ve called yourself a weeaboo/koreaboo so much that it’s lost the original meaning behind the word where it was meant to be a label on people who fetishize asians? that you’ve been contributing to the fetishization of Asians for so long you don’t realize that what you’re doing is fetishization?

just admit you don’t care about the fetishization of Asian people if you pull this sort of thing, at least you can say that you’re honest about it and let people know they should avoid you.

Tumblr translations I've encountered through the past six months...

- “Do you have any proof?”
- “LMAO GOOGLE IT! I’m too tired to educate you 😴😴😴”

Translation: “No, I don’t have any proof, and the fact that you’ve made me realize I have come to this conclusion without any evidence bothers me.”

- “How are you being an activist?”
- “Have you not seen my posts!?!”

Translation: “I either am not able to actually be an activist or haven’t realized that participating in a hashtag isn’t activism.”

- “__________ is a Nazi and a fascist.”

Translation: “This person disagreed with me and I can’t define fascism.”

- “The right to free speech doesn’t prevent you from consequences!”

Translation: “What I’m saying is completely factual but don’t you dare make ME face consequences for what I say.”

- “Go back to Reddit!”

Translation: “I’ve blocked you for making me question my beliefs.”

- “Okay, I might have been wrong here but you are only proving my point…”

Translation: “You might have proven me wrong, but I’m in denial.”

- “That’s (insert prejudice of choice here).”

Translation: “You’ve drawn a character I like in a different shade of color / you disagreed with a minority or a woman / you shipped a character ‘incorrectly’ / I’ve been shown to be uneducated on the topic at hand, but I’m in denial / you listened to someone I disagree with.”

- “Reverse oppression isn’t real.”

Translation: “It’s okay when WE do it.”

- “Listen to minorities!”
- “This minority disagrees with you. Shouldn’t I listen to them?”
- “You have to realize your opinion isn’t the only one.”

Translation: “You’ve made me realize that people of a certain trait do not think the same and I don’t understand how that can be. I also didn’t realize 'listen’ doesn’t mean 'agree’ so I’m trying to block out this dissenting opinion of someone who I believe should agree with me based solely on the fact they are a minority.”

- “Bad post OP. Yikes.”

Translation: “Bad post OP. Yikes.”

puffyball13  asked:

I loved billdip for a long time but often other fans of gravity falls said mean and rude things about it and to those who ship it? As a fellow shipper, I ask for your wisdom to tell me why?

Hello sweetheart, I’m sorry for taking so long to reply you.

For your question, I pretty much don’t want to discuss about this publicly but I think it would be better if I say it out one more time. 

As much as I hate to admit this but BillDip is neither the most popular ship AND the most hated ship in this fandom, the reason can be summarized in one word: pedophilia - which stands for a relationship between an adult with a child. Others reasons is about abusive relationship or some sort.

If you ever want an advice from me, let me tell you one thing, that is certainly important to remember if you ever see someone harrassing the ship again: they are fictional characters. None of the thing we artists/authors draw/write are real, it’s just our own imaginations. 

Sure when I say this some of you might wonder: “Then it’s okay to ship pedophilia with fictional characters because it’s your imagination?”. If I answer this in my very opinion, I’m the kind who would like to build a proper relationship for the couple I like so I can avoid all the bad things happen to them, but if I answer this in the role of all BillDip shippers, I must say yes and no, cause we all people and we have weird tastes in something sometimes but that not mean we support/are that kind in real life, fiction and real life are really, really different, please remember. It’s like watching some Disney movie which make you wondering “How the heck can two characters fall in love in like one day?”, but yet you still ship them. Yeah, that’s pretty much it mate, fiction don’t happen in real life. 

So if someone don’t like the ship please just move on, this fandom is not about us shippers so don’t pull the rage to you by yourself just because you don’t like it or want people to stop shipping it, trust me, they won’t stop…

GREG WEISMAN IS MY HERO

Can we take 5 minutes to read it? I Love how Greg support LGBTQ people and how he don’t care about Twitter Hate. Ok dearies, all of us know about Marie Logan aka Garfield Logan’s Mother (Beast Boy). But what do you think about it? who can be the others LGBTQ CHARACTERS!?!? I hope Bluepulse! Obviously because is my favorite ship, as a Bisexual Mexican Boy, I Love Jaime Reyes and his relationship with Bart Allen, even if only are Best Friends. We saw Poison Ivy on Season One and she’s officially Bisexual, hope se more about her and Harley on Season 3. In the animated movies we have 2 LGBTQ CHARACTERS and I need them on Young Justice, John Constantine (Bi) and Batwoman (Lesby). And also Aqualad and Jericho are Bisexuals on the comics. In my opinion, Kaldur don’t need a girlfriend or boyfriend, he need time to forget Tula. Hope see Jericho and Slade on S3, even if he’s not Bi, love him since Teen Titans. Love you all!
Fandom Double Standards

There’s a disturbing trend I’m noticing in fandom nowadays. Now, obviously, there’s exceptions to what I’m about to talk about (there are those who don’t fall into this behavior, of course), but I’d say it’s a problem with the majority.

The majority of fandom has made what qualifies content as good or bad into extremely summarized ideas and often ignores the big picture.

Say there’s a fic that deals with a ship that would likely include abuse.

“BAD, WHAT’S WRONG WITH THAT CREATOR? HOW DARE THEY?”
“Okay, but in the fic they deal with these abusive behaviors and call them out and they-”
“NO. THAT SHIP IS ABUSIVE. YOU APPROVE OF ABUSE. YOU NEED TO STOP.”

Yet the same people will look at a fic that involves a ship that is overall supported and considered healthy while the fic itself includes abuse.

“OH MY GOD, WHAT IS GONNA HAPPEN? WHEN ARE THEY GONNA FIGURE OUT THEY LOVE EACH OTHER ALREADY?”
“But this character has treated the other terribly so far and they aren’t approaching any of this in a healthy mann-”
“BUT TRUE LOVE CAN FIX IT, WHAT’S WRONG WITH YOU? YOU JUST WANT TO MAKE IT ABUSIVE AND CAUSE TROUBLE. YOU NEED TO STOP.”

It happens over and over again.

Enemies-to-lovers ship: ABUSE! BAD!
Commonly accepted ship in an enemies-to-lovers AU: OMG ITS SO HOT

Age gap ship: PEDOPHILIA! BAD!
Commonly accepted ship in an age gap AU: AHHH I LOVE IT! MORE!

Student/Teacher ship: UNHEALTHY POWER DYNAMIC! BAD!
Commonly accepted ship in a Student/Teacher AU: AHHH SO HOT AND RISKY! I LOVE IT!

etc, etc.

Essentially, fandom is starting to learn there are some unhealthy things out there (which is good, don’t get me wrong, I hope we all grow wise enough to realize things like 50 Shades is unhealthy before they can get the chance to be popular enough to spread the wrong message like the generations before), but they simplify it to buzz words and essentially judging a book by its cover. If the idea of a character or ship is considered an unhealthy thing, they attach those unhealthy buzzwords to them and often ignore if that unhealthiness is acknowledged and dealt with appropriately. While at the same time, they’ll see a character or ship that has no unhealthy ideas attached to them and will go about their fics/art/vids/etc oblivious to the abusive behaviors that could be in them and not acknowledged properly because they think this character/ship can do no wrong.

And then many will go so far as to outcast or bully those who like the things with unhealthy buzzwords attached regardless of how they may go about it while turning around and glorifying creations that are far more abusive than anything those people may like.

It’s like making one step in the right direction but also taking ten steps back.

And this double standard drives me absolutely bonkers.

hey so like if you’re a reylo shipper who also happens to be a person of color, could you please like this?

i wanna find more reylo shippers of color bc i think a lot about how reylo can be seen as racist by people who don’t ship them together (yts ending together, “no way Rey can be with Finn!” rhetoric that’s imbued with anti-Blackness) and like basically i just wanna know if anyone else also stays up and thinks about these things?

bc calling out racism, trying to stop systemic racism is really important to me as a woman of color so i just feel conflicted bc i’m shipping reylo and like it could just end up being a very bad, problematic thing and i just…………wanna talk about this???

as you can tell, i have been having a weird time about this

also can only reylo shippers of color respond to this? anyone can reblog/like but i’m not trying to get into full winded discussions about racism within nerd & fandom cultures, especially not with white ppl

reminder 36582 that westallen is so important. not just cause they are a pure, healthy relationship who are soulmates in every timeline/universe etc. but because they are the MAIN interracial couple on a pretty racist network on the highest rated show. you can be pressed about it all you want and wish barry was in love with your white fave but that’ll never be the case. years from now it won’t matter why you disliked them together. all people will remember was that the main white character was in love with a black woman. and that candice patton as iris west created opportunities for other WOC (i.e flash movie). that.will always.be.important. because representation matters. and more shows ought to do the same. 

anonymous asked:

I've never read any type of fan fiction , soo can you recommend me good slow burn camren fics? Thanks love your blog girly

Lauren never planned on living in the house she lived in. She never planned on working the job she worked. She never planned on befriending a strange girl named Camila, either. Lauren never planned a lot of things.Thanks sweets 😘

Chances (one of my favs)

Camila and Lauren both share a room in college, but that’s about the only thing they have in common. At least that’s what they assume. From the start, they haven’t been able to get along with each other, seeing as they’re pretty incompatible and they pick fights over everything. But little do they know that they’re each other’s closest friends on Tumblr. They message each other constantly and along the way, feelings developed. What happens when they soon realize on a bold decision to meet on a blind date that the person who they want nothing to do with is the same person they think about right before they go to sleep?

Lifeboat Lighthouse (favs)

Camila’s entire life had been mapped out for her since she was child, she would go to college, study business and then eventually take over her father’s company. It was a life she never wanted but had no say in at all. But when the privileged daughter of a multimillionaire meets Lauren, a waitress on the luxury cruise ship where she’ll be spending the summer, her world and everything she knows is turned upside down. Camila is about to learn the hard way that just like the ocean that she sails on, life can be unpredictable. Like the turning tides, everything can change in an instant.

Walk a Mile (favs)

Look with your eyes. Judge with your soul. First impressions almost always suck. They can be spot on or way off, depending on how open and receptive you are to the other person. When you make preconceived notions about people, learning to tolerate them can be a little difficult. What if you have to live with them? That’s the situation Camila and Lauren have been put in. As typical and cliche as it may be, two totally different worlds collide. However this time, neither of them know whether they’ll mould or combust.

Yours Truly 

Lauren and Camila know a lot about each other, except for, well, their names. They’ve been writing anonymous, handwritten letters to each other for an English assignment for a couple months now and during that time, Lauren’s developed a genuine interest for a girl whose handwriting resembles a child’s first attempt at using a pencil. But she couldn’t be more charmed by it. What happens when Lauren unexpectedly finds out that the shy girl in her class who she doesn’t know a single thing about has the exact same handwriting as in the letters she anticipates reading every single day?

Through Her Eyes

Lauren never planned on living in the house she lived in. She never planned on working the job she worked. She never planned on befriending a strange girl named Camila, either. Lauren never planned a lot of things.

Reasons to go, reasons to stay

“And I wonder how many polar opposites we have brought together by falling in love. Inside you could have been the match that started the fire and burned down an entire house, and inside of me may live the remnants of a rocking chair inside the house that was burned to the ground. All these little things… these cells that make up our bodies, they could have once despised one another. But now every single part of me is in love with every single part of you. Just with one touch we would be resolving age old conflicts, or ushering the tip of the tallest mountain to kiss the sand that lies at the deepest part of the ocean.”

Yellow series : Yellow / Blue / Green  (FLUUUFFFF)

Lauren Jauregui hated Camila Cabello, plain and simple. Of course, who could blame her? Camila had been the one who read Lauren’s private texts in front of the whole cafeteria, forcing her out of the closet. Lauren left for New York with her three best friends the day she graduated, thinking she had escaped Camila. The only problem is, Camila is back. And different. Completely different. Not the kind of ‘different’ you’d expect, either.

The Stripper (SMUT)

Have you ever imagined having two lives? Be two people at the same time? I bet you have. But between thinking and living there was a very big distance, believe it. Imagine… Camila, a sweet and delicate woman. Karla, sexy and imposing. Which one would you choose? What’s your type? Hard, I know. Let’s let Lauren answer this one…

Experiments (SMUT)

A lot of girls experiment in college; it’s natural. It’s no different at the University of Miami, and when they’re looking to experiment, they know exactly who to go to. But what will happen when she finally falls for one of the girls she hooks up with?

Trials & Tribulations (very long but must read)

“A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.”

CC7 / LJ10 (still ongoing - not many updates)

Lauren and Camila are two of the most promising soccer talents in the country. The two skilled girls are playing for the U-17 US team to win the world championship in Costa Rica. Their connection on the field is obvious but what happens off field when unexpected feelings come in to play?

Surreal Perfection (non au)

It’s been a year since Lauren decided to break out from Fifth Harmony to start her own band, and Camila still hasn’t forgiven her for leaving them, and for leaving her. After a brief encounter at an award show, their lives come crashing back together. Angst, Drama, Humour, Romance, and everything else in between.

The Girl Next Door

Camila Cabello is an average girl. She’s not popular, or somewhere in between. She belongs to a group that her school refers to as the Brains. She’s extremely smart, involved in many educational clubs and the only thing fun in her life, advanced choir.  She’s that type of girl who gets pushed around, does people’s homework because they tell her too, and gets tormented by the preps. The preps (the popular kids) are a group of people who torment people like the Brians. Camila has found her self running from them all her life. Along side with her friends Dinah Jane Hansen, Normani Kordei, Ally Brooke and Darren Criss. But one day during one of her encounters with the preps, her life changes forever. And it was all because of her.

Can you believe I stopped in the middle of a serious thing just to draw this bullshit because honestly I can’t
