i am proud being part of this fandom

anonymous asked:

I just saw today's Conference and BTS emphasized that they want to be the artist who gives POSITIVE influences. 7 months ago I was addicted to drugs and basically can do nothing but suffering from addiction. And one day I found JK's after-Daesang blog on YT. He is a super successful artist but he was still saying that he needs to live more meaningful life after the prize. I cried hard that day cause I'm a loser who is only a drug addict So I decided to broke the addiction. BTS CHANGED MY LIFE!!!

I am so proud of you dear and happy you are part of this fandom ^^. 

BTS changed the life of many and I heard that a lot while being in the fandom. Sometimes it feels like everyone is singing about the same thing. Rather than the lyrics and the message, it’s just the beat that matters as long as it is addicting. However, there are times we need music that is healing more than entertaining. We need celebrities that are humanly honest with their fans and not afraid to show their flaws. Something that speaks to this dark side we keep hidden from even close friends. Or something that will motivate us to finally step up and gather some courage to walk again. Bangtan are humble and hard workers and that’s very inspiring.

All 7 members of BTS have similar values to be of help to this world. They suffered a lot too at a young age and learned that there are many matters society keeps hidden so they decided to speak up. Thanks to that, many of their fans get inspired on a daily by BTS and their music to carry on better lives and be better people. 

One more thing dear, you are a winner faaar from a loser. You fought against your own self and that’s one of the toughest things ever. 

Can I just say, I’ve never felt so proud to be in a fandom as I do with the Dirk Gently community. Seeing the amazing support for the #savedirkgently campaign is so inspiring that I’m genuinely at a loss for words at how grateful I am for our community. As someone who has been a part of this fandom since the early days, seeing the progress and love of the fandom grow over the last year is amazing and I’ve never felt so at home as I do being part of this community. So thank you all so much for making this community as loving and caring as it is! <3

Funny how reynos go running to comfort some white bitch whos celebrated Finn's getting hurt. You don't call out racism in your fandom but you'll run to comfort them when they get called out. I just think it's funny :))

Let’s go through your message, anon.  

First, yes I did comfort a fellow Reylo recently.  I’m assuming you are talking about @coupdefoudrey , who received some pretty vile Anti-Semitic messages recently.  What you and your friends did isn’t calling out, it’s harassment.

Second, I comforted her because I value her feelings because unlike Finn, she’s a real person.  This is something you and your little group of victim playing sociopaths forget when you go to avenge imaginary slights against imaginary characters. 

Third, I have yet to see an incident of racism not addressed in this fandom.  In fact, for the longest time, many people would rush to attack a person when what they did was not intentional and was the cause of being from a different culture.  I am honestly proud of Reylos for taking a step back from the callout culture and attempting to educate rather than eviscerate. 

I’m not sugar coating this next part; every single one of you and your anti friends are sociopaths.  You take pleasure in harming real people under the delirious reasoning of helping.  If you wanted to help people, you would spend your time doing productive things.  You could volunteer to work with disadvantaged children, walk shelter dogs, raise money to donate to real victims of abuse if you truly wanted to help.  Hell, you could make content for your own ship and be far more productive than you are now.   Instead, you and your sociopathic friends spend their free time circle jerking to something that supposedly triggers them.  Each one of you competing to cum the hardest while shouting all the ways an imaginary ship has victimized you personally.  You and your friends are so completely pathetic and your lives are absolutely disgraceful.  

Your parents should be ashamed of the monsters they have raised, ones that believe it is okay to threaten real people over imaginary characters.  What you are doing isn’t because of immaturity from youth or from mental illness.  All of you are just horrible assholes who lack empathy because you were raised to believe that everything you think and feel is incredibly important.  You truly believe that the importance you personally place on a fictional character is more important than someone else’s mental health and therefore have the right to send them threats and Anti-Semitic messages.  You derive pleasure from harming real people and I worry for the safety of the people around you.

Since we are talking about things we find funny, I think it’s hilarious that you would reach out to me over this matter and expect me to address it in any other way than what I just did.  Now if you will excuse me, I have to finish editing stories for a Reylo project that is coming out soon and am very busy.  Since you obviously have nothing productive to do, I would offer for you to come help me, but from your original message, we both know your editing abilities are not up for such a task.  

Time for Mama Sarah to appear

When I first got started in this fandom and first became a member of @innerinnercircle, I was known among the Morana Witches (our network) as Mama Sarah. I got this name because I tried (and sometimes failed) to reign in overenthusiastic smols and drama-thirsty people my own age. It was a joke and an endearing nickname, but it’s always been kind of accurate to how I’ve run my blog and interacted with the fandom. Mama Sarah hasn’t been around much the past few months, because for the most part, she wasn’t needed. But now? I need to bring her out again.

I am absolutely appalled by the behavior of this fandom since the release of ACOWAR. Never have I imagined seeing such vitriol coming out, but here it is. People are literally being bullied off the site because of personal attacks, nastiness, and anon hate. This is NOT how this fandom used to be, and I’m incredibly disappointed. I remember the days last summer when we were proud of ourselves for being “better than the ToG fandom” which had years of ship wars and drama built up (this isn’t a dig against them, just a comparison of the level of wank, as Harry calls it, at the time). Everyone just let one another be, let them enjoy their own ships, and meta about characters. Now, I honestly think we’re worse than the ToG fandom ever was. 

WE NEED TO BE BETTER THAN THIS. 

People are allowed to like or not like the book, and they are allowed to share their own opinion on their own blog. If you don’t like what you’re seeing from someone, unfollow or blacklist them! It’s okay! That’s how this website is made to work! DO NOT send them messages criticizing how they run their blog or, for heaven’s sake, calling them two-faced or making attacks against their personalities! I cannot believe what I’ve been witnessing over the past two weeks. I’m frankly ashamed by some of this behavior. 

Does anyone really feel good about themselves sending such nasty messages to people anonymously? Does it really make you feel better about whatever you’re upset about? This is grade school behavior, guys. There is a BIG difference between constructive criticism or calling someone out for a mistake and calling them a piece of shit or making insinuations about their personal lives. The latter is just entirely unacceptable. 

My follower count is only just beginning to recover from the blow it took before and during ACOWAR, and I really hate to have to make a post like this two days before my big announcement. But honestly, if you think that sending anonymous hate to people, intentionally stirring up drama, or bullying people is okay, then UNFOLLOW ME. That is not the kind of blog I run, and I will not be associated with people who think it’s remotely acceptable. We are all real people behind these blogs, and we should all be treating each other with respect and compassion. I’ve never told people to unfollow me before, but in this case, I pick standing up for what’s right over my follower count. 

I’m probably going to get messages accusing me of preaching, being a snob, or whatever, and that’s fine. I accept those consequences. But standing up for people who have been bullied is more important than that. I’m complicit if I stay silent. 

Also, if anyone has been bullied, know that my blog is a safe place for you to come and find comfort and understanding. It always has been and always will be. 

I’ve loved being a part of this fandom, but I need to put my foot down about this. I know I don’t have the power to control anyone, but I had to say something. Enough is enough. 

I love my kind, sweet followers and those who engage in discussion civilly and with compassion. I love my followers who stand up for what they believe in. But I do not in any way support bullying or vicious behavior. It needs to stop.

Phoenix Wright is such a tragic character and he gets so mistreated by a lot of the fandom. Phoenix, like Adrian, is very codependent on others (though not to the same extent: in his case it’s the opinions and presence of others that give him validation). There’s evidence of this littered throughout the original trilogy (him being codependent on the Hawthorne twins, him latching onto the idea of becoming an attorney because of a) Mia’s actions and b) he knows he can use it to meet Miles, him being lost when Maya isn’t around, his obsession with Miles and how broken he becomes when Miles is “dead”). It’s his friends and his job as an attorney that give him a sense of purpose and give him validation and it’s in game 3 that we finally see him coming into his own, become his own self.

Fast forward to game 4 and it’s no surprise that Phoenix has become this hollow version of himself. Here’s a man who always found his purpose through others and his job and suddenly that was all taken away from him and his name was smeared. And because he has a tendency to be codependent, he latched on to Trucy who became a pillar of strength. It’s not out of character for him to cling to whatever, or whoever, is gonna bring him a sense of purpose and some validation.

Skip to game 5 and not only is he back to who he was before (with some traits of his AA4 self because that was a part of who he is) but he’s also not as codependent. He somehow shook off the anguish he felt and found himself again, and became his own self. And it’s so amazing and wonderful and I’m so proud of him. I mean the games after AA4 aren’t the best but I am so proud of who Phoenix was able to become and what he accomplished.

And yet, as @lesbianedgeworth stated in one of their posts, there is a tendency to infantilize him within the fandom. A lot of people see his “Feenie” stage (a struggling, manipulated, emotional college student who was being accused of murder and had a tendency to cry) as his “true self” and they write him off as this blubbering baby of a man. And that’s such an injustice to Phoenix because Phoenix, like most people, changed as he got older. He matured and though there are parts of Feenie still in him, that isn’t solely who he is. And I know a big part of the infantilization comes from Yaoi™ fans, it’s to make him fit into an “uke” role or whatever, and that’s equally as unjust and gross.

Phoenix has suffered a lot and evolved a lot as a character and characterizing him as this overly emotional “bottom” is awful. He deserves better.

Hi Karamel shippers!

Just wanted to thank all of you who participated in the We Love Karamel twitter trend earlier today. We weren’t sure we would trend anywhere, let alone worldwide, but WE DID! We were trending for 2 hours with around 14,000 tweets (right up until the episode started).

From all the hate being thrown at Kara, Mon-El, and Karamel, we honestly didn’t expect to trend. Our goal was to be heard by the cast and crew, and tell them we do appreciate what they have done bringing Karamel to life, NOT to attack other people (especially since Melissa, Chris, and the writers are attacked constantly on twitter).

Now we know that our Karamel Fandom is quite larger than we anticipated! We might not see a lot on twitter because of all the hate, but we see them here on Tumblr, Instagram, and ESPECIALLY YouTube! We should always take the higher road and spread LOVE not hate.

Even though the trend is over, when you guys have free time, always send message of appreciation and love to Chris, Melissa, and all the other wonderful cast and crew of Supergirl. I’m sure they will love to see us appreciate them.

Anyways, one last thing, whatever other people say, I am PROUD to be part of this Karamel fandom. We are a family. And each and everyone of you are amazing people and have the right to have your own opinions and ship your ships without being judged. :)

Have a nice day / afternoon / night wherever you are. :)

so uh i actually make a remade of my fandom friends old sims and i kinda proud how it turn out!! (and i also sleepy rip me) Also, gonna make a part 2 of this!

so yeah, to know who is who is:

(On first picture, pose made by @a-radioactive-mess) From left to right: myself, @turtle-brownie , @mewly / @i-am-a-fandom-hoe , @lanapowellblog , @kohinocr / @jakemcckenzie and @zahranamazis !!

(On second picture, pose made by @dearkims) From left to right: @juminhansome / @gayforgayle and @miss-twombly !

all of them based on their mcs and persona!!! (like, tsm/tfm mc, es mc, trr mc and so on!)

i love you guys so much. thank you for being there for me.

*All thanks to the creators of the CC! Without them, I might don’t remake this!*

as someone who followed the discourse™ for the past few days (and yes I’m that person who reads comments and tags, trust me I have seen it all) I just want to say how proud I am of all the V fans who made informative posts, explaining over and over how unhealthy R*kaxV is, who brought us the facts and were still met with hatred and the same stupid accusations again and again. I have no words to describe how much I love you all, thank you for being the best part of the fandom!

anonymous asked:

So, recently there's been a lot of negative posts in the supercorp tags and now everybody is calling each supercorp shipper bullies and I don't really like that. I know that there are really bad supercorp shippers out there but we need to get a good name and hopefully ppl wouldn't think of us as bad ppl

Yes, I have seen quite a bit of it and to be honest, I’m over it. Speaking personally, I’ve been pre-judged and identified as a bully despite treating everyone with kindness simply because I ship Supercorp. I’ve been identified as a “traitor” and an “abuse apologist” and of “harboring racists and homophobes” simply because, I’m sorry, I’m too old and busy to get into arguments and target people with hate over the internet and offer a safe place to anyone that feels the same way. 

Anyone with an ounce of reason knows that it is wrong to generalize a group of people based on the toxic behavior of a subgroup within their community. 

Anyone with an iota of sense knows that it’s not all of us. And we want them gone just like they do.

People have said that others are just as bad for not speaking out against members of the fandom. Guess what? Many of us have. All it does is bolster their childish behavior, put them on the defensive, give them attention and give them something else to laugh at and ridicule for the day until they get right back to it. How many times can we say, “Hey kids, stop being so mean,” before it simply becomes exhausting and futile? So I don’t. I block them. I blacklist them. I can’t be bothered. Again – too old, too mature, too busy. This is the internet and people are going to continue to act the way they do and like what they like. As soon as one decides to stop, a new one comes in to pick up the slack.

So instead, I continue to create the kind of environment that I like to be part of. Just as everyone else has the right to do. Am I against some the issues that we find problematic on the show? Absolutely. Am I going to engage in a “war” with people (my age and significantly younger) that feel differently? Nah. So as I always say, what we can continue to do is act positively. Ship what we want, love what we want and I don’t know… just treat people with a bit of decency? That’s the easy part. 

I, like many others, am ashamed of that portion of our fandom and the hateful members and those on the other side of this positively insipid war. But I’m also proud of myself and others for placing themselves above that, spreading positivity, being kind to others (including members of the cast). I really hope that good behavior continues.

Anywhooo sorry for the ramble! And thanks for sharing your concerns with me. 💗💗 Have a hug!

  • Nico: *spends every moment of his life from the moment book 3 ends suffering* *isolates himself from everyone who cares about him for years* *doesn't catch a single break and isn't given a chance to be happy for once for years* *spends the majority of the most important developmental years of his life moving from place to place surviving on his own* *spends years stewing in self hatred, anger, and internalized homophobia because of his crush on Percy and is then forced out of the closet* *doesn't believe anyone actually cares about him and believes that he doesn't have a home anywhere* *gives zero shits about his own health and survival as long as he can help others*
  • Trials of Apollo: look at Nico finally finding his place among the other half-bloods, learning to interact, being happy, and having a healthy romantic relationship with Will as a side plot
  • Parts of the fandom: lmao why is everyone so focused on solangelo, the main plot is about Apollo???? they didnt even show up that often stop making this about your ships

Warning this is going to be a very long post about Exo and Exo-l. Yesterday and the day before that I went to see Exo at the Exo'rdium.dot in Seoul. And I just wanted to say that both concert days where some of the best experiences I ever had. I was so nervous about being a foreigner and sticking out in the crowd. I was worried about not understanding a lot of Korean, but Exo-l’s were super nice to me and made me feel included.

To the girl who sat next to me on the first day, who noticed that I was having trouble setting up my light stick and helped me set it up. Thank for speaking English to me even though you were having a hard time trying to explain things to me. I really appreciated the effort and helping me figure things out.

To the girl who sat in front of me on the second day when I was sitting alone, thank you so much for speaking in English to me and asking about how I got into kpop. Thank you for the nice conversation about Exo concerts in America vs. Exo concerts in Korea. You were so nice and thank for being understanding about my lack of Korean speaking skills.

To the girl who sat next to me on the second day, thank you for including me into your conversations. I appreciate that even though you could not speak English, you spoke to me in very basic Korean so that I could understanding what you where saying and you gave me time to respond. Thank you for talking to me like I was your friend and tapping me on the shoulder so you could point things out to me. Thank you for teaching me the fan chants that I did not know.

And to all the Exo-l’s who where at the Exo'rdium.dot in Seoul. Thank you so much for giving me the experience of a life time. We sang together and chanted to together. We danced together and we felt emotion together. I truly felt like I was a part of a tight unit and I am truly thankful and humbled to be a part of it. You guys made me feel loved. You showed me what being an Exo-l means. Exo-l is truly one of the best fandoms out there.

And lastly to Exo, you guys put on a great performance. Even though I may not be able to understand a lot of Korean, I understand all the hard work you put towards your performance. I could feel the emotion and passion you where trying to convey. I could see how much you love Exo-l’s and how proud you are of your fans. Thank you so much for the amazing performances and let’s us experience your music. I cannot wait for you guys to comeback. I am truly proud to call myself an Exo-l.

uhmm, hey! *nervous sigh* so i’ve decide to go back and be active in the flash fandom once again, and here’s a friendly reminder that i am a proud snowbarry shipper… i find no shame in that (no matter how many times some people accuse me of being racist white trash, ugly, crazy, bitch that needs to check my head). and this info is directed mostly to the toxic and misogynistic part of fandom that ruinied it for me the last time: please, if you’re not able to get along with the fact that i don’t ship westallen, want to be stupid and immature because of that sole reason then don’t follow my blog, don’t engage me in petty fights and seriously, just go back to shipping your ship but leave me and mine in peace. i will do the same… this goes both ways sb stans. yeah, talking to you toxic snowbarry shippers. do not go out of your way to be mean on purpose to wa stans. we’re on season 4 and some of you still can’t/don’t want to learn a simple lesson, hate breeds hate. just STOP.

Bellarke fandom

I love you guys, all of you. I love the fact that I’m you’re so hyped before each episode even if the previous one get our hopes down. I love the meta writers who keep our hopes up and our mind sane. I love the energy that there still is after four year and that it never fails. I love that right our hopes are based on minutes of a song and a glance in a sneak peak. I love the fact that you fight so hard on pools to get recognition for our little cinnamon roll children. I love all honesty of you: those who contributes to the fandom by doing gifs (which I live on), the talented people who writes or draw, and so many others. But I also love the people who can’t do shit (like me 😝) but who are still so important because you make up the fandom, you read, you react, you fangirl and fanboy on. I guess what I wanted to say is I am proud to be a part of the bellarke fandom and the energy and hope and craziness you bring to our fandom. I don’t know who’s going to read this or if it’s going to be noticed, but know that I love you for being a part of this dramatic af fandom. You’re gold. And thank you for everyone who made me laugh.

soccerplusgirl  asked:

Thanks for the PSA about Paige. I've had some fandoms in the past not respect actors and actresses while they go through something really personal and I find it extremely annoying. It's always good to remind people that our favorite actresses and actors are just human beings like us and deserve their privacy

Thanks, friend! And yes, it’s so important, especially in this case where there is a child involved; we all know that both of them are really caring parents, and this must be really difficult, and the more shit is floating around on the internet the higher the chances that their 13-year-old son and/or his friends will stumble over it.  Like I think it’s totally legit that we’re all having a lot of sad feelings about this - Paige and Jason were like a real-life OTP for a lot of people in this fandom, and we all care about Paige so much that we all hate the idea of her being unhappy - so it’s not like, you know, “NEVER TALK ABOUT THIS EVER EVER EVER” or anything like that. Just, like, keep the speculation in DMs instead of out in public where it’s searchable.  I feel like a reasonable barometer is, don’t post anything that you wouldn’t want her son’s friends to text him like “look what I saw on Twitter about your parents.”  They’re a real family going through a really hard time, and it’s not like a soap opera for our benefit.

That being said, though, I am REALLY PROUD of the Kabby fandom today because almost everyone I’ve seen has been handling this exactly right.  I haven’t seen anyone @ either of them, for the most part people are being respectful about not like flinging around wild rumors or theories, and not giving much airtime to that insulting TMZ article.  It actually makes me kind of emotional, tbh, because it’s obvious that people care about her so much but also are being really understanding about the fact that she’s a real person going through a terrible time and she doesn’t belong to us.  And I think we all know fandoms where the end result of this would have been like a blitz of hysterical tweets tagging both of them or attacking one or the other based on speculation about whose fault it was or hurling around crazy rumors and then retweeting them hundreds of times or people trying to win points with Paige by sending her a million invasive “support” tweets that mostly just serve to remind her that everyone on the internet knows her private business.  And literally none of that has happened. It’s just people quietly filling up her indirects by tagging her in stuff about her shows in order to try and drown out all the endless bot RT’s of that TMZ link. 

There are times when it’s a bummer being part of a small fandom - always being rooted against in polls when you’re up against another ship from your show, knowing you will never get Funko Pops of your OTP, constantly lamenting their lack of screen time - but times like this remind me why I love being part of the Kabby fandom and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.  I’m just really proud of how respectful and chill and supportive-without-being-invasive everyone is being, and I agree with you that we’ve probably all witnessed or heard total horror stories from other fandoms where everyone goes crazy.  And the Kabby fandom’s just not like that.  The Paige fans are sad that she’s sad right now, but nobody’s sending death tweets to Jason.  And like I’ve never seen Ian fans say one SINGLE negative thing about Annie, either; as a matter of fact you often see them RTing stuff about her creative projects as a show of support as well.  It’s just like a uniquely chill attitude towards our faves’ personal lives, which I suspect is partly because the average age might skew slightly older (not that there AREN’T youngs in the fandom but there might be MORE olds balancing it out) (such as I, a known 35-year-old) and partly just because like we’re a smaller ship and everyone knows everyone and it’s easier to hold people accountable and create a positive dynamic across the board in a smaller-sized group.  I have friends who are both CL and BC shippers who have said to me “can we like be adopted by the Kabby fandom as honorary members, IT’S SO MUCH MORE CHILL OVER THERE!”

Anyway, I’m just having a lot of Kabby Mom Feels right now about how well everyone has behaved themselves today; I was sort of afraid we were all going to have to spend huge chunks of the day all over twitter telling people “yo, fucking untag Paige from your tweet full of spiteful unfounded rumors,” but instead everyone is just like “this is sad, I hope she’s okay,” and that was it.  Like seriously GOOD JOB TEAM

This is BEYOND amazing!!! I am so so SO proud to be a massive Barbie fan right now, I’ve been a fan all my life and she’s never let me down but at this moment I’m so very happy ❤️ Thank you Barbie for being my biggest idol, role model and love! FAN FOR LIFE, I can’t wait to get my hands on some of these beauties and have them part of my collection 😍

Each day as I pass by here, I see how each one of you would either like, reblog or leave comments on the posts. Other days I just surf through to see what others post especially to the ones I follow or if you follow me.

Honestly, I feel like I’m slowly decaying mentally each passing days. I am proud to be here despite all the craziness, drama, negatively that goes around bit that is life. We all face it outside of the internet. It’s something of what’s part of growing and being human. Being human may not be ideal due to the causes throughout histories. But that is something we all have to come together to build a better community, home and life.

I may sound like I’m just rumbling but this is really me reaching out to those that come here to either get out of reality, keeping touch with fandoms, artists, meme, drama, spoilers, etc. Though I feel heartbroken at times when there’s someone who would like the blog and when I message them I never hear from them again (and if you know me, I love to keep in touch cause I know each and every one of you are wonderful people.) Sometimes I feel like that there isn’t a place for me to ever social with anyone who actually shares the same interests. I really wish I could tell those people that how much I care even though I could never receive any sign of life from them.

Before I go I have this to say to everyone here and to my followers.

You make each day a special day. You know how, by just your being you. There’s only one person in this whole world like you. And people can like you exactly as you are.

And someone once told me this and to every youth group of my age when Mister Rogers was alive.

“… I would like to tell you what I often told you when you were much younger. I like you just the way you are. And what’s more, I’m so grateful to you for helping the children in your life to know that you’ll do everything you can to keep them safe. And to help them express their feelings in ways that will bring healing in many different neighborhoods. Its such a good feeling to know that we’re lifelong friends.” -Mr. Rogers in his final goodbyes

I am sure that when I write this, plenty can agree that this scene was tear-worthy. I felt it pull my heart far from my chest cavity and into the back of my throat. You have no idea how amazing I thought this episode. Thomas Astruc was right to want these last two episodes as the finale to the series. I have no idea how you can take any of the other episodes and top this one. I don’t care that it doesn’t make sense chronologically, the season ended with a bang and one of the most emotional scenes I’ve ever come to terms with.

How can anyone look at this scene and not think it is the most genuine and sensitive moment you have ever come across, especially within context? Adrien Agreste - the boy who has been trapped in a life filled with everything he could want, but with nothing he needs? A boy who hasn’t had the chance to have one friend - any real friends until he’s come here. Who was misunderstood and has nothing but the purest intentions in that enormous golden heart of his? The fact that he’s offering his umbrella to this girl who has misunderstood him makes me feel so much for him - more than any fictional character. He has a car he can take shelter in, he could very well walk off with that umbrella and leave things tense. I imagine that Marinette would have had the same reaction to him if he hadn’t given her his umbrella. But he does. HE DOES. And it makes my heart swell so much. Even when this scene tugs my heartstrings, it surprises me with the humor of Marinette’s clumsiness and it makes Adrien laugh - it gives him joy and to be the first person to really give that to him? God, that must mean the world to Marinette who falls for him. Though she’ll never really think about it that way.

But I am so happy to think that she is. That all this time, she’s lamented about her bad luck and her clumsiness that this one time that she is clumsy, that is he is classic Marinette, it is the moment that counts for both of them.

And my gosh, what am I supposed to say about their hand-touch? You do not have any time dedicated to a hand touch like that if you don’t want a reaction from your audience. And they got a reaction from me.

I wept.

I fell madly in love with these characters, albeit a little late into the season, but I fell madly in love - as you can see from our URL and the spam we’ve given you every Sunday. But I had no idea that I would fall so hard and so deeply into this show that has given me so much more to look forward to  - like many of you, I’m so glad I’ve been part of this fandom and I’ve been so proud. I’ve seen so much come out from this fandom, from the creators of translations, graphics, art, and writing…You are all amazing beings and I am incredibly happy that you’ve been part of this ride.

I don’t want it to be over yet. I just don’t.
