i am kind of a fan

anonymous asked:

Do you think that Nick is being praised a little too much? I mean is that how low a bar a man has to go over to be eligible to be the "good guy"? Personally I am disgusted by him. He literally did nothing, he was an accomplice. Why do fans of the show like him so much? Because June could have sex with him every once in a while to hold onto something real, to keep her wits about herself? I think he is a traitor and the worst kind at that. Being an ally is being more than what Nick ever was! :<

There’s quite a few things here to reply to so I’m gonna try to do my best.

First of, male characters definitely have a much lower bar to be considered a “good guy”, this is clear across lots of fandoms! It’s not right, but it’s certainly not exclusive to Handmaid’s Tale.

I feel like the fandom disagrees on a whole, but yes, I do mostly agree with you anon. I definitely wouldn’t go as far as to say I’m disgusted by him (for me personally) but I don’t like him as much as everyone else, nor do I ship him and June. I will of course reblog gifs of them and gifs of Nick to keep a fair balance on the blog, but they’re not my cup of tea. (Side note: I’m currently drinking tea out of my Nolite Te Bastardes Carborundorum mug which seemed appropriate to mention).

We don’t know what the outcome of season one was yet, whether Nick did betray the system he supported into creation to give June a chance at being saved, or whether he was tricking her. It was left open in the book as well. If they were the resistance, he was taking a huge risk and going against the system and potentially risking death. If they were to find out he was involved, of course.

I do think he regrets his involvement in the creation of Gilead, at least to some extent. I don’t know if he started to think this way before June, or he slowly started to see how awful it was after he met her. Because of what happened to the previous ‘Offred’ and how he found her, I’m inclined to think the latter. Although I don’t ship them, I do think he - at the very least - cares for June immensely. He wouldn’t be with her otherwise because she could sell him out at any moment, and the proof would be in the baby in her stomach, so it was a risk for him to maintain the relationship too. He has a vested interest in keeping June and the baby alive.

June’s decision to be with Nick is definitely, in my opinion, a way for her to give herself choice and agency back, something that Gilead has ripped away from her and other women, particularly Handmaids but also Marthas, econwives and - for some of them - the wives (not all of them).

He did willingly join the Sons of Jacob on his own, he wasn’t forced into the regime like a lot of the population was, despite joining it initially because he needed a job and wanted to support his family. Could he have left before it all went to shit, when he really started noticing the cracks? Of course.

I do think he regrets his involvement of Gilead personally, but it’s hard to know. He hasn’t ever outright said anything about his involvement in the beginning, all that was said that he was sorry it was happening to June specifically.

So while I agree in a sense, that I do think he gets praise for some things he hasn’t done and I don’t like him (or June/Nick) as much as other people, I don’t think he’s a wholly irredeemable character. It really depends how the show proceeds from here. I’m interested to see!

(disclaimer: i am not in any way trying to create drama i just wanted to say my opinion on the crash because idk really lol but yeah like not trying to create drama or anything)

idk why i’m making this post lmao oh god uhm i guess it’s kind of because i wasn’t on the weekend it happened so like i really didn’t say anything on the situation™

i’ll regret this later on i believe but to just address i am a seb fan (obvs), i like lewis as well but i am the fan who sees none of these drivers as saints (except pascal he is just perfect) they are like the most egoistic dicks on the planet and if you are too nice you will rarely and very hardly win a championship

as i was growing up i saw seb grow up as well and i would say i know him pretty well not like ya know too personally but in a fan way i guess and yes he has a temper and yes sometimes it gets better out of him but also sometimes like brazil ‘12 drives him to do something great and after watching seb’s onboard a few times it honestly looks accidental because seb is an idiot and was really occupied with warning and looking at lewis to actually correct his steering wheel now you might say it’s biased but oh well now from some angles it looks like it was intentional ngl but either way it was wrong

and i think everyone should accept it was wrong and move on because seb got his punishment but he wasn’t the one putting lewis’ headrest in during the red flag at that moment lewis didn’t have luck and y'all know sometimes luck in f1 is a bitch but then again you look at it as yes it was a safety issue and nothing could have been done to really fasten up the pit stop and that is zero luck but ferrari calculated when was the best to pit and seb helped them even more with the purple sector times he pulled out somehow

it’s honestly funny to know that the headrest changed the game completely like it’s obvious that lewis was hella salty because he was staring at the red rear of the ferrari but like seb had nothing to do with it he wasn’t the one who put his headrest in seb gave him zero damage from their bang he was honestly blaming seb for being in front of him for no actual reason when a person in his team is to blame

it’s just so like annoying i guess like yes the bang was wrong but it did nothing to fuck lewis’ race up like i said before in my post if lewis won would’ve this been made such a big deal nah because it would’ve put lewis as the leader of the wdc and would’ve he gave a fuck obviously no because it gave him zero damage and didn’t change his race at all (again it was the headrest)

now onto fia it’s like they are acting this is a notebook and are trying to make as much drama as possible and i genuinely don’t see the point in that because as previous races proved we have an amazing championship battle this year and an amazing season and we honestly do not need a controversy to spice things up

now onto some comments both of them made some immature comments after the race and like even after following the sport for years i was kinda thrown back by lewis’ comments because like if you are calling the move seb did as ‘disgusting and a disgrace’ when in fact the move did not fuck up anything for you not your car, not your race
then i wonder what he would say about the moves senna or michael did at much higher speeds, with much bigger consequences and championships at stakes both of them did that to decide a championship (and he himself watched those races)

it’s also funny to see how he is playing games with seb i mean he said he lost all his respect for him and it’s like did you have any if you lost it so fast and over something that didn’t harm you

also it was wrong from seb to ignore the whole thing (except with will) and bring in the ‘a man’ thing it was really unnecessary as was 'the kids’ comment from lewis

seb ignoring it could be a pr strategy or who knows really but it was kinda annoying

also lewis saying he doesn’t want to talk to seb is tbh really shitty like yeah you had a shitty race i get it but i am a person who thinks that everyone who is involved in something like this with consequences should know all the sides of the story and honestly it wouldn’t hurt lewis if he listened to seb’s story and sees his perspective on it and hears his apology if there is/will be one

all in all the move was wrong but it’s not to blame for lewis’ shitty result and honestly the real opinions on this from them we will only hear at austria because they had no time to think after the race but until austria everything will settle down, they will have long ass time to think and maybe a phone call to change their after race opinion

and lastly to add the move was wrong, seb got his punishment and we should all move on there is no need for calling either of these drivers with awful names, there is no need for memes that either seb’s fans or lewis’ could be offended by, you can have your opinion and you don’t have to agree with mine and i might not agree with yours but different people saw this incident differently some think it was intentional some don’t let’s just accept it either way and move on

What are your favorite bellarke AU fanfics?

I hate this question because my memory is so bad and i feel like I can’t do it justice. But, oh, I just re read This Beautiful Life by CallMeHux. Long and  involved. Kind of a Party Of Five AU, with Bellamy as Clarke’s nanny because she’s the guardian of her siblings. 

This coffee shop, comic book one is awesome. Face it Tiger by cofee_grounders.  

I’m trying to find lesser known ones but my book marks are lame. I apparently am not book marking things lately. So these are pretty old. But you know, looking at the older stuff is fun right now. with the lack of new content and all, it’s nice to go into the archives for good stories we might have missed. 

Here’s a fake marriage, because I’m a sucker for fake marriage. It’s not lesser known but it is one of my favorites. Time Enough For Rocking When I’m Old @ponyregrets/chash

i’m going to stop now. Someone remind me that I need to keep track of the stories I love better. book mark more. Anyone want to add any of their favorite Bellarke AUs? Oh I did all modern AUs, didn’t even think about others. ooops.

The biggest thing I feel like I have come to realize throughout all of this is what type of fan I want to be. It isn’t seeing the people I am a fan of as gods who are incapable of making mistakes. It is understanding that they are humans who are complex, flawed, and imperfect yet are trying their best everyday and therefore should be treated with kindness, compassion and support.

just to clear some things up...

It came to my attention yesterday that some have been pointing to my videos and saying that I am giving credibility to the anti-Semitic movement, and my fans are part of it as well for watching. I don’t want to cite the sources because I don’t want to give them any more attention.

This originated from a video I made a couple of weeks ago. I was trying to show how crazy the modern world is, specifically some of the services available online. I picked something that seemed absurd to me—That people on Fiverr would say anything for 5 dollars.

I think it’s important to say something and I want to make one thing clear: I am in no way supporting any kind of hateful attitudes.

I make videos for my audience. I think of the content that I create as entertainment, and not a place for any serious political commentary. I know my audience understand that and that is why they come to my channel.  Though this was not my intention, I understand that these jokes were ultimately offensive.

As laughable as it is to believe that I might actually endorse these people, to anyone unsure on my standpoint regarding hate-based groups: No, I don’t support these people in any way.

Thanks for reading.

Everyday I’m reminded of the beauty in the LGBTQ community.

I see it in the tear streaked faces of two young girls in the audience. Their hair is wild and their eyes electric and they kiss. They kiss with the unbridled syrup sweet passion you can only taste when you are young and in love.

I see it in the wrinkled hands of a man fastening a jacket he designed himself. He laughs and tells me if I care to hear it, he’ll tell me about the years he spent in the Lower East Side designing clothes for drag queens. The hours he’d lay on the floor and laugh while they sang and sauntered and how they looked 20 feet tall like gods among men towering in their heels through the wooden apartment floors. How they’d tackle every stair of a 6 floor walk up apartment in their stilettos and strip off the jackets he’d make them; leaving them safe on an arm chair.

I hear it on the dance floor, and the radio. Beats and movements curated and designed and popularized by gay clubs across the world, many like Pulse, in Florida. When the DJs knew they’d struck a hit once the bodies gyrated, and sweat, and interlocked across the floor.

I feel it in the swing of the songs that dominate my favorite playlists, all of them in some way spun from the spider web of the Blues; the music genre that laid the foundation for modern rock, hip hop, and pop. Lady lovin’ Ma Rainey sang the sorrows of her heart with such soul that moved across sound waves for generations since.

I see it in the smile of a young trans woman in the mirror of a department store on Melrose Ave. She runs her hands along the fabric of her dress and gives a half hearted twirl. Her friends cheer and whistle and laugh and she picks up speed. Her skirt goes round and round and she spins with vigor and with intention. She lands dizzy and stumbling in the lap of her friend and tells the salesperson with a grin “I’ll take it!”

I read it in the lines of my favorite authors. Men and women who knew pain unlike any other. Who felt the lightning strike through their bodies every night they slept away from their lovers. How it infiltrated to their fingertips and formed words and poems no one could birth without knowing the pain of being split in two. Ripped apart like thick alabaster pages and bleeding like ink from a quill.

I feel it to my core in memories of the first time I kissed a girl. It trembles in my nervous lips. I see it in her shiny red hair and it burst forth from every freckle across her nose. I smell it in the humid air fogging up the windows of a cabin in the woods. And it rustles through our soft breath shimmering through the kind of quiet you can only catch in the forest.

And so I shout it. As loud as I can. In my lyrics. In my art. In a rainbow flag waving across thousands of pixels across my stage. I shout it in the faces of the oppressors and I shout it hand in hand with both my beautiful young fans, and the queer folk that I look up to everyday.

Our beauty is in every corner of the world. In the fabric of our past. In the glimmer of our vibrant future. We are beautiful. And I am so in love with everything you are and everything you have ever been. This is my love letter to you.

- Halsey’s love letter to the LGBTQ community

I used to be the kind of person who whenever people told me they didn’t like girl groups, I was like, “Oh okay, I can respect your opinion,” but I am honestly at the point where I can’t do that anymore. I’m so tired of hearing my fave idols get slandered because someone made a judgement based off of two girl group songs they heard 10 years ago. If anyone said anything remotely bad about boy groups, those fans would lose their shit, but girl group stans are expected to sit there and take it. They have to listen to people calling their faves sluts, untalented, etc. They have to listen to people complain about sexy and cute concepts when boy groups can do bad boy concepts out the ass and not get any shit. They have to listen to people talk about how their faves “can’t dance” and how “annoying” their voices are. And if a girl group stan says anything about it, the rebuttal is always, “Well everyone is entitled to their own opinion :)).” I’m not respecting an opinion that is based off of poor judgement and ridicules women. I’m not respecting an opinion that is hypocritical and disrespectful to another human being. Female idols deserve respect and I’m so tired of having to fight for people to see how talented they are. I’m so tired of having to say this shit over and over just because people refuse to treat female idols like humans. Girl groups deserve so much better.

When I was in high school, i used to think that i loved fan fiction because i was making up for some kind of romantic deficit by living vicariously through the characters, but now I’m 23 and have been in a healthy, loving relationship for years, and I still stay up too late reading fanfiction, so probably I’m just trash.

Do not take, share or search for photos of BTS wherever they are.

Please, let them enjoy this small break they have. Do not let Bon Voyage happen again.

If you see photos - do not share them. If you see the members - do not share their location, take their photo or follow them.


Please. Do not be a part of the reason as to why they feel they always have to stay in their hotel.

If they wanted to share their location with the fan base, they would have. Right now, I do not feel they want this information to be known. Thus, whatever the reasons are, I feel we can respect that.

There are roses on Derek’s doorstep.

No note. No scent trail. After determining that there is nothing inherently magical or deadly about them, he spends the entire rest of the day researching symbolism and archaic demon customs, trying to figure out what kind of death threat he’s just been handed.

It doesn’t occur to him until nightfall, when the neighbors start discussing their romantic dinner plans at a decibel he has trouble tuning out, that he realizes the flowers might not have been delivered with malicious intent.

Because, apparently, today is Valentine’s Day. And apparently someone decided that Derek should receive flowers to celebrate the occasion.

Derek Hale has a secret admirer.

He honestly would have preferred the death threat.

‘Stranger Things’ and ‘Riverdale’ star Shannon Purser comes out as bisexual

  • After receiving some criticism over a now-deleted tweet about Riverdale fans who ship Veronica and Betty, Purser apologized Tuesday and came out in a note posted to Twitter. 
  • She had been accused of “queerbaiting” and wanted to set the record straight herself, admitting that being part of the LGBT community is still new for her.
  • She followed her coming out with “Psalms 42 God is too kind to me” and then asked fans, “Should I confront the creature living in my attic, or?” Read more (4/19/17 9:45 AM)

“As much as there is a large community of people that wants to see Jughead as asexual and I am a huge proponent for that kind of representation, there’s also quite a large community of avid Archie fans that want Betty and Jughead to be together too. This Jughead is not Zdarsky’s Jughead. This Jughead is not the aromantic Jughead. Riverdale’s Jughead is this tortured damage kid like Holden Caulfield, and that narrative itself is also beautiful.” 

“How are people going to respond? Truthfully, they’re probably going to be quite incendiary about it at first. Do I think that’s ill-placed? No. Do I think they should give it a shot? Yeah, I do, because I think now — after filming thirteen episodes — it makes sense to me and, if it makes sense to me as the person who’s dumping so much time and especially so much argumentation into trying to represent Jughead correctly, if it makes sense to me, it will make sense to other people as well.”

- Cole Sprouse on Riverdale’s version of Jughead

I so badly wanted for this to be false.

I don’t know what it is I’m feeling right now. I’m angry. I’m beyond infuriated with the disgusting account that leaked this. It’s unfair for this person to keep getting away with this bullshit when Harry and his family have been nothing but kind. I’m angry at the sense of entitlement that certain “fans” have– going through his trash and stalking his hotel.

I’m devastated. It’s the same sinking feeling I had when Jay passed. And it’s even more heartbreaking knowing how Harry could’ve been struggling this whole time in silence– just how we never knew Jay was really sick until she was gone.

But I am so, so beyond proud of Harry. My god. Stopping for fans even after something like this has happened? He’s an incredible, beautiful human being. He’s too good to us, to the world.

It’s a helpless feeling, wanting to do so much and being able to do nothing but send positive vibes and love to your favorite when they’re grieving. Especially when this person, their music, their kindness, has served as a comfort to you during your own times of trouble. The best we can do is band together, be there for one another, love those who are most important to us with all of our hearts.

I wish I could stop crying, because I know this doesn’t directly affect me. I can’t even imagine what Harry, Gemma, Robin’s children, and poor Anne must be feeling. But the truth is, we are affected. Just as we were affected with Jay’s passing. These people loved our boys with all of their hearts, they adapted to this crazy lifestyle and were always so kind. It’s heart wrenching to know that seeing Robin proudly wearing Harry’s hat at The Garage would be the last time we’d see him. Fuck cancer.

I love you all. Take care of yourselves. Please, for goodness sake, be nice. Be good. To one another, and to Harry. Send this family all the love in the world right now.

Rip Robin. You touched so many, and you will never be forgotten.
