i don't even know if there are appropriate tags for this mess

anonymous asked:

Honestly things have been such a mess lately and looking more and more like it's going to be a long term battle. Not even sure if there is still a band left anymore. I still care about the guys but if we have to continue with the bullshit then I don't see the point really. Now we got two fake babies and a bunch of fake girlfriends and the most shady promo. I would rather give my time and money to someone else. Still gonna be here for your writing though :)

Who would’ve thought this shit would stretch for long and get even worse, eh? I certainly wouldn’t. But we’re here, and that’s the current situation. *sighs*

I don’t even worry about the band TBH. All this shit we’re seeing traces back to money. We’re seeing the result of a predatory industry preying on young talents (literal kids when the boys started). So, even if it takes 20 years, 1D will still come back because it’s profitable. (New Kids on The Block have returned, so why not 1D?).

Even if they were at each other’s throats (like the press wants us to believe), at one point they would still come back because $$$. Remember how everyone got excited about the prospect of some dude suing 1D and how that would mean all five reunited in court? That only proves that, despite the fuckery in this fandom, people would nut for a reunion. End of. 1D are a big name. It doesn’t matter that many think they’re a band for kids. Pretty much everyone knows about 1D, even if just to mock them as “kiddies stuff”.

(And here I don’t have much to say because 1D’s team targets grown men making all kinds of lewd jokes and singing innuendos at kids. If you go back to UAN tour, you’ll know a bunch of hormonal teenage boys were NEVER appropriate for little kids. “Blow a kiss, blow a job”? “Different dick every night”? PLS!)

But back to the subject. Yeah, it feels like everything will drag for some time. We see all those babies around, and it doesn’t seem like we’re getting any denouement soon. We can’t enjoy anything about the boys’ solo careers without some kind of fuckery, or being used to promote their so-called “girlfriends”. Everything is normal and people break up and get cheated and go back again.  Yup, nothing to see here. Celebrities are fickle and so are the normal people associated to them. :)

Many don’t care for facts and roll with it. Some even want you to dumb down to their level when logic and facts tell you otherwise. Fandom life is more and more complicated because you don’t know who to follow, the friend of yesterday is the heterosexuality-loving anti of tomorrow blocking you and pretending like they’ve never seen the shadiness they turn a blind eye on now. Many of your blog friends are deleting or changing blogs completely; everybody and their nan are a Kpop blog now.

I agree with you in that we don’t have many positive things right now. Haven’t had them for years now TBH. It’s just no fun. I can see why investing time in other thing would be nice, or even just enjoy casually the music that (hopefully) comes out. I’ll probably do that at one point, too. I’m not interested in drama. When I want drama I watch Soraya Montenegro try to kill three different characters in the same scene★. Now That’s What I Call Drama™.

All that said, I still want to see the boys emerge victorious. It won’t be easy (we’re seeing it now), but one day something good must happen, right? We’ve never asked for much.

We wanted nice merch? Have dolls, bags and 256 perfumes!

We wanted OT5 content? Too bad, they’re all mortal enemies now. Their securities actually are to protect them from one another.

We wanted the rumoured collabs with other artists like FOB? Get rekt! There’s no ‘team’ in ‘featuring’, and have I mentioned that all 1D boys hate each other?

We’re honestly starved of everything we’d get from a normal band. I’ll be blunt here: I don’t give a single fuck about personal lives, naming their families members or whom they’re supposedly banging. I never did. But what did we get? A bunch of “relatable” canvas girlfriends to supposedly makes us squee. Aww, see that? The boys date normal girls! Older girls! That means you too can be a 1D girlfriend!!! Yeahhh… there’s not a single thing surrounding 1D that had been aimed for typical fans. Everything had been done like we all want to bone them. (And many do, but that’s not everyone. They’re not pieces of meat and we’re not fucking pumas!)

1D success has been DESPITE their team. The boys are loveable and their bond is what has drawn most of the people in. I still think we don’t have many 1D fans as we have “I’m [1D boy]’s fan and I’m stick with the other 4” around here. Too many hateful stans that thrive on tearing the others down to elevate their fave. When I think about that, it’s not hard see why 1D shitty team got away with the putrid stuff they try to feed us: too many scavengers.

Anyway! I have no idea where I was going with this (it’s mostly 1AM ramblings), but yeah. We can only hope for something good in less than 20 years. I wish all five the best and want to see them succeed. I hope I can see it happen before we’re all 50-somethings. And thank you for the kind words. :) Glad my writing can add something positive to this hellhole of fandom. I’m here for the music, the boys’ friendship, to support them and fandom content. Sadly those are the things we don’t get any more. *sighs*

Us, As Told by Other People

Written for the 28+ Phandom Meetup, this fic grew too long for me to finish in time. But here is it. 

(~8k, pining, smut, getting together, friends to lovers) | [AO3 Link]

Big shoutout to @killingmeitsso2yearsago​ and @adorkablephil​ for listening to me rabbit on about this one. And to @cosmicphandom2k16​ for hosting the meet up that inspired me to write this. 

Summary: People make a lot of assumptions about Dan and Phil, but what happens when Dan starts believing some of them. You can’t actually ship yourself with your best friend, can you? 

Or: the five times Dan was guilty of over-thinking things, and the one time he wasn’t.

anonymous asked:

Hi! I love your headcanons so much! If you don't mind I wanted to know what you think each of the 12 Chosen Children would be like at a Christmas party (alcohol may or may not be included)?

I’m glad they amuse you :D hmm a Christmas party…

Taichi: Shows up late and already a bit buzzed because he’s already made the rounds to five other Christmas shindigs hosted by school friends, soccer mates, and relatives. First order of business is to compliment Yamato’s ass. He’s not sure why. Brings over his mother’s Christmas bundt cake that she makes every year and that he smuggles out to pawn on some poor unsuspecting soul so that his mom’ll be forced to get a store-bought, non-toxic cake. Somehow eventually ends up on the roof looking for hoofprints. Multiple times. No thanks to the spiked eggnog.

Yamato: Cooks most of the food. His whisk doubles as a cudgel whenever Taichi or Daisuke try to sneak a taste of things before they’re ready. Otherwise he’s pretty mellow, tsundere on ultra low, and can even be persuaded to strum some Christmas carols on his guitar. Rescues Taichi off the roof three times, losing his keys in the rain gutter. Doesn’t care until the next day. Secretly likes the twinkling lights and sentimentalism. Still kind of wants to kill Mimi and Daisuke.

Sora: Makes sure that the mess is kept to a minimum and that everyone’s eating something along with their eggnog and that they never run out of things like water and cookies and common sense. That is, until she winds up under the mistletoe with Yamato, after which she’s so embarrased that she locks herself in the bathroom while Taichi and Yamato beg her to come out (“What are you so upset for! It was a great kiss! Like something right out an adult film!” “HEY TAICHI NEXT TIME YOU’RE ON THE ROOF TRY JUMPING OFF. YOU’LL FLY JUST LIKE RUDOLPH”)

Koushirou: Determined to do the whole Christmas party thing right. Politely festive in the beginning, wishes everyone seasons greetings, does not protest the santa hat Mimi plants on his head, dutifully builds a snowman with Mimi and Miyako until they kick him out of the club for refusing to give it a name. Claims he never had a sip of eggnog. Still ends up squatting in the dark in only his underpants, eating whipped cream straight from the can and making fake OKCupid profiles.

Mimi: Leads the room in Christmassy karaoke. Accidentally sits on Jou after he passes out on the couch. Sits on Taichi on purpose to keep him from going back on the roof. Confesses to being in love with at least six of the others at separate intervals. Tells Jou she wants to lick whipped cream off his glasses. (He was already unconscious.) The one who spiked the eggnog.

Jou: Spends the first half of the party desperately dodging the mistletoe which somehow keeps appearing above his head (must be the nargles) and the second half passed out from accidentally drinking spiked eggnog. So long and lanky he takes up the entire couch. Actually, everyone sits on him at some point.

Takeru: Everyone gives him hats for presents. Wears all of them at once, Hikari has to sit on Ken’s shoulders to fit them all in one photo. Smiles and charms everyone but is constantly interrupted by phone calls from classmates asking why he’s not at their party. The one who spiked the eggnog a second time.

Hikari: In charge of cataloguing and takes endless photos, methodically uploading them to the Internet and cackling as she thinks about the de-tagging frenzy to occur the next day. Catches Takeru re-spiking the eggnog, informs him he’s got a special seat in hell, Takeru tells her it’s revenge for all the hats. They make out, but have to stop because the snowman is eyeing them judgmentally.

Daisuke: Super wired the whole evening. Eats all the candy canes on the tree so that no one remembers they were ever there. Probably still believes in Santa. Tries to catch Hikari under the mistletoe, catches Taichi instead, becomes Sexually Confused. (It’s a critical hit!) Six glasses of eggnog later, he decides to construct a two foot tall gingerbread tower, cries at its inevitable collapse, gets sent to bed for being drunk enough to cry.

Miyako: Also very wired. Voice gets louder and louder as the night wears on. Asks Jou to set her up with one of his brothers. Asks Takeru and Hikari to set her up with one of their brothers. Asks Sora how she learn to kiss so hot. Wanders outself with the mistletoe and dangles it forlornly over the snowman and declares he’s just as good as a real man, for a man’s love is cold and unfeeling.

Iori: Besides Takeru, gives everyone socks. Spends the night in a futile effort to convince Daisuke that Santa is not real. Gets nicknamed Scrooge, pouts. Practices kendo on the snowman.

Ken: Successfully constructs a two foot tall gingerbread tower, complete with flying buttresses. Receives the appropriate accolades. The only one (besides Iori) who’s not hungover in the morning. Feels kind of left out about that.

Felicity Queen, CEO vs The Executive

“Hello Mrs Queen. Is your husband not here tonight?”

Felicity carefully placed her tonic water back on the bar. She had been taking a sip when she had been slightly startled by the voice behind her. She always had mixed feelings about these events. She knew it was necessary despite how tedious they could be, but the opportunity to get dressed up was worth it, especially when Oliver would devour her with his eyes. Or his tongue when he tore those dresses from her when they were finally alone.

As she turned around the face that greeted her was that of a man in his early fifties with grey speckled hair. His tall stature seemed to tower over her but at her height that didn’t take very much. He seemed to exude an aura of arrogance, almost as if his presence at this event was the highest compliment he could pay the hosts. Julian Pryce, she remembered now. A man she tried to deal with as little as possible.

“Oh yes he’s around.”

“Oh good I wanted to talk business with him.”

Her initial impression of him was confirmed as he refused to look her in the eye, focussing more on her breasts. Could he be anymore obnoxious?

“Well actually Oliver is no longer working for the company. He still has investment in QI, but I’m the CEO. So you can talk business with me.”

He blinked at her for a few moments once he removed his gaze from her chest.

“You’re the CEO? Have you only been recently appointed?”

“No. I have been running the company since Ray Palmer transferred ownership to me five years ago. Prior to that I was Vice President of Palmer Technologies where I laid out the groundwork for a lot of the achievements the company has made in recent years.”

If she suddenly sprouted three heads and six arms, he would probably look less shocked. He genuinely appeared speechless for a few seconds.

“Well that is surprising. Even Moira didn’t achieve this level of success during her tenure, so naturally I assumed that Oliver had taken over once again. I always felt that QI flourished under a man’s supervision. First Robert, then Walter. I never expected, well, you.”


Keep to one word responses Felicity, she berated herself. She twisted to pick up her drink. Even less likely to say something if your mouth is full of tonic water.

“So, your not planning on having children then?”

She choked slightly at his words. So the drink wasn’t a good idea. She coughed softly, partly in disbelief.

“Excuse me?”

“Well a woman can’t run a business and raise a family. So I assume that it’s not a priority for you?”

Are you for real right now?! This guy has no tact. Stay calm, Felicity. Do not sink to his level of inappropriateness.

“Actually I have a two year old daughter. Family is very important to me.”

“Really? I just assumed…”

He swirled a small tumbler glass of amber liquid around. Scotch, she was sure. Probably from a bottle worth more than he would pay one of his staff in a month.

“Well assuming isn’t your strong suit clearly.”

Either he chose to ignore her or had simply not heard. She was actually surprised he was paying enough attention to be able to respond to her.

“You must have had an excellent replacement in your many months off then to continue the success of the business.”

She bit the inside of her cheek. He was a bigot of the highest order but this was business. She knew everything she wanted to say to this sexist creep but she needed to keep him sweet. Despite the arrogant CEO representing them, his company had potential, one that Felicity had been watching for a while now. It wasn’t fair to make his employees suffer for his mistakes.

“I didn’t take that much time off actually. I delayed starting my maternity leave until two weeks before my due date, then once my daughter was born, I returned to work as soon as possible. This time around, I’m taking as long a leave as possible.”

“You’re expecting?”

Shit. They weren’t supposed to be telling anyone outside of the family yet.

“Yes I am.”

“Queen Incorporated is in its prime. Do you really think this is an appropriate time? It seems like you didn’t really think this through. And honestly it’s a little selfish.”

Screw business. That was the final straw.

“Have you read the newspaper stories about my wife?”

A hand rested on her lower back as she was encased in the scent of something uniquely Oliver. As he fully reached her side she could see his eyes blazing with fury. Oh this guy was screwed.

“She’s the most successful CEO that Queen Incorporated, in any form or name, has ever had. She took my father’s company and made it something more. She has turned it into a thriving legacy for our family, one that once again I am proud to have my name tied to.”


Pryce had barely got out his name before Oliver continued.

“So no. It is not selfish of her to want to take time out to spend time with our family. Its not selfish to want to take this second pregnancy easier after the stress she put herself through the first time. It’s not selfish to put her needs first for once because all she has ever done is think of others. She treats every employee as a person. Someone who has a life and a family of their own. They are not just figures on employment records.”

His gaze softened as he looked to her, smiling as he did so, before returning his attention to Pryce, rage coming off him in waves. He was almost going full-vigilante mode on him.

“I am not embarrassed to say she is a better CEO than I ever was. I am not embarrassed that she is the breadwinner. What I am, is a very proud husband.”

She stepped closer to his side, revelling in the look of realisation in Pryce’s face that he had messed with the wrong woman.

“My wife has sacrificed parts of her life to help build this company into this masterpiece so now it’s time to take care of herself. After all her dedication, she deserves a break. So tell me, Mr..”

“Pryce” she supplied.

“Right. Mr Pryce, can we say the same about you?”

The flustered executive’s mouth flapped as he tried to find the right words to backpedal the last five minutes. Oliver’s hand slipped to the side of her waist, squeezing slightly, as he led her away. They had wasted enough time on him already. Once they reached the other side of the room, he pulled out a chair for her, before taking up the seat next to her. He sighed, eyes looking at the ground.

“I’m sorry. I know you don’t need me to defend you from corporate sharks and you can take care of yourself, but I just couldn’t stand by and let that misogynistic pig talk about you like that. I can’t believe he had the audacity to say it to your face!”

“Don’t be sorry. I’m sorry that I blurted out about the baby.”

“Don’t be.”

She shuffled her chair closer to him just enough so she could lean into him, her lips brushing his ear.

“Oliver. How long do we have to stay before it’s an acceptable time to leave?”

“Why do you ask?”

“Because I want to strip that suit off of my proud husband.”


Tagging my lovelies: olicitykisses diggo26 olicity-beautiful-dreamer ohliverfelicity arrows-and-winchesters wilfulshipper pharmalen miriam1779 mel-loves-all

Anyone wanting to be tagged/untagged let me know.

why are Yato’s weird actions suddenly becoming controversial in the Noragami fandom even though it happened SO MANY CHAPTERS AGOOO

1. It’s okay to still love those scenes and find them funny while still knowing the things he’s doing are wrong. The whole reason it’s funny is because it is extreme and inappropriate and Hiyori reacts in the appropriate manner (she’s terrified lol). If Hiyori found his actions endearing, then maybe we’d have a problem. But she understands that he doesn’t exactly know what he’s doing or else she would have kicked his ass to the curb a long time ago; she’s a smart girl, she wouldn’t deal with crap and she lets him know right away when she’s unhappy with the things he does. 

2. It’s okay to still love Yato despite his inappropriate behavior. His inappropriate behavior is because of his terrible upbringing by trash dad. He even tells Hiyori in Capypa Land that he’s “so comfortable with her” that he just doesn’t even really think through things. 

He’s never really been allowed to be himself, so of course he’s gonna go to the extreme with everything. 

3. As I said in a reblog about the thing of Yato knowing Hiyori’s bra size, Yato never even really sexualizes her even when she’s in the towel (and he doesn’t even get embarrassed until he sees her clothes sitting on the bed and realizes oh crap she’s basically naked). Maybe he snooped in her room and looked at her sizes and whatever just cuz he wanted to get and/or make her things? Yes, the snooping part is still bad, but I feel like the bra size thing has no sexual meaning behind it (aside from it becoming a joke for the reader, because of course our minds jump to that). Like the only time I can remotely remember Yato sexualizing Hiyori even in the slightest is the thing where he says he can see her panties from inside of the trash can so he can get out of telling the truth. In canon, at least. There’s more sexualizing going on in the little bonus comics, but that’s a different story for multiple reasons. 

4. Yato said he didn’t want to kill anymore and Yukine promised him he’d never let him kill anyone again. Obviously Yato wouldn’t do anything to any boys who are classmates with Hiyori lol. It’s a joke. 

It’s pretty much a dad joke, tbh. Like dads joke about that sort of thing all the time. Would any of them actually go get their gun and literally shoot boys who interact with their daughter? Nah. 

idk I feel like people are just reading WAY TOO FAR INTO IT when it’s easily explained? 

tldr; yes, Yato’s behavior is messed up, but it’s done to create comedy and it’s something that won’t always be a problem. The characters know it’s a problem, and Yato himself sort of knows it is; but he’s learning. That’s what makes him a good character and that’s why Noragami is such a great manga/anime. 

anonymous asked:

While I agree that cultural appropriation is a thing (why do people say it's not???) isn't it true that most Japanese want to spread their culture and beliefs? If my memory of history class serves correctly, it wasn't like this before. But hasn't that changed? Yeah I can get why her costume can be offensive, but as far as the actual tea or stylization (I hope that didn't come out wrong) of the whole thing, is it really that bad?

Alright, please bear with me and allow me to preface this by saying I’m not too good at this. You’re better off asking a blog like thisisnotjapan. But this is going to be from my perspective, and what I have learned during my time on this site.

Anon, allow me to clarify. First of all, yes, any country would like to expand the reach of their culture. That’s simply how civilization works, and by extension, how it exists in the form it is today. But here’s the thing. Japanese people in Japan (actual ones, mind you, not the ones who say they are online w/o evidence, I never trust those on principle) don’t have the same perspective as those diaspora (people of Japanese descent who live elsewhere in the world). 

You see, many non-European cultures are… made light of, in many countries around the world. General xenophobia, antiblackness worldwide, that sort of thing. And particularly in places like the United States, the current trend is East Asian countries. You’ve seen them. Weeaboos, Koreaboos, that sort of thing. Honestly if this site was around in the 80′s or 90′s you’d have Chinaboos all over the place too. That’s the problem. We are a trend here, and that’s not ok. Many people like to use our language to accessorize their own (aesthetic bloggers, looking directly at you, despite your eye gouging themes), or act as though they know more about Japanese culture because of an anime they watched.

I cannot tell you how many times, for example, I go to Little Tokyo in Downtown LA, and see far more cosplayers than should be there, or see someone say something is “so anime” as though anime is the only facet of modern Japanese culture. I get it. Cosplay is a popular hobby to have. Cosplay is fun. I do it too. But the thing is that cosplay as we know it today started in Japan, and has been consumed here. Just like many other things, weeaboos have commodified many parts of Japanese culture, or used it to present themselves as more worldly or more knowledgeable, or even in some worse cases, “more Japanese” than people like myself, an actual diasporic Japanese person. 

I realize I’ve made this a bigger issue than most would have, but the thing is, it really is that bad. As I said in my much angrier version on that post, we are a culture, not a costume, and I don’t think it’s fair that that little white girl gets to have her geisha fantasy for a day, while many Japanese people train and devote themselves to the lifestyle and get looked down upon by white people, the same ones who gush about how cute their little girl looks in a much much worse “kimono” and poorly done makeup. 

In short, anon, and I sincerely hope this helps you understand, Japanese people are not a costume, not a trend, and we should not be treated as one. If some white family wants to have a geisha tea party, they need to know why that’s wrong, and learn how to go about it properly. Hell, hire an actual geisha to perform a tea ceremony with them, it’s still more respectful than bad facepaint and paper thin “kimono”.

I'm freaking out over this whole anon hate thing that's been going on around the (mainly) SPN fandom. It's messing with my anxiety and making it hard to log on to tumblr every day because I'm going to find people dead and I'mm shaking right now over it but I don't want to just log off until it blows over Becuase I feel I should be helping but I'm sick to my stomachand I don't know how to help Im so useless in this situation.

The first thing I suggest is that you take a break from Tumblr for the time-being.  I want you to understand that it is not your job to become involved.  There are many, many resources available to those who need it, including a great many posts going around that list these.  If you’d like some of these, check out my Master Post here. Mental health professionals and trained volunteers exist for a very good reason: many people simply aren’t suited to shoulder the weight of other peoples’ pain.  This does not make you selfish: first and foremost you need to take care of your own well-being.

Here are some further suggestions to minimize the impact of this event for you and others:

  • Check out Defending Yourself Against Harasses on Tumblr.
  • Download and utilize Tumblr Savior to blacklist any tags that may be triggering to you during this time.  
  • Turn off Anonymous Asks.  If someone needs to contact you, they can darn-well do it under a screen name.
  • Track and block bothersome IP addresses.  We have a guide on how to do this here.
  • Check out Know Anon.
  • Make use of the PostBlock icon that can be found at the bottom of all received messages.  It looks like a gray hand, or a gray hand with a paper over it.  You can use this function on any Ask, whether Anon or not!  It blocks the computer ip, making it much more difficult for a person to send messages from another account. 
  • Change your password to something that not even your best friend(s) or family would guess.  It’s best to use both capital and lower-case letters, punctuation, and numbers.
  • If you suspect that someone has logged into your account… go here.
  • Avoid arguing with hurtful Anons.  This feeds into the situation and entices others to become involved.  

Here are some posts with various mental and emotional health resources:

One of the main reasons this whole thing has spiraled out of control is due to the way that people have reacted.  Public displays show abusers that their tactics are working.  Arguments with Anons simply increases their desire to mess with people further.  The more that people feed into the hysteria in a public manner, the more others become involved.  

Always remember, Anons can be anyone: a friend that wants you to hurt so that you’ll lean on them (yes, this has happened many, many times), children who don’t realize the lasting harm they are doing, sociopaths, sadists that enjoy other peoples’ pain, etc.  Their messages say far more about them than it says about you, and blocking Anons or refusing to answer them does not show weakness on your part.

It has also been shown that various users are using this event to fake their own death or suicide attempts.  This is not an appropriate way of asking for help, as it hurts others.  There are much better ways of reaching out and showing that you are hurting internally.  As I’ve said, there are many, many resources available!

I implore all of you to take the proper measure to protect yourself, and to let things die out.  The more you react to the Anon Hate, the more it feeds it.  If you are hurting, please contact a helpline or a local mental health professional.  They are there to help you.


don't touch

so everyone knows about the gay chicken trope in fics right? well I happen to love it so last night when I was falling asleep watching the thanksgiving things to do I was a bit sidetracked, thinking about geoff, ray, ryan, and gavin filming themselves doing stupid shit as they do. which so happened to be gay chicken or something similar to what people do when its late at night and the sexual tension in the room is high as fuck

So this somehow ended up as a fic. There’s nsfw fun times ahead which I promised the tag so uhh.. enjoy

Also if you actually get off to this, I salute you, but I’m not writing more for now

if you were to go into the “girl gang” tag right now, I can guarantee you’d find it filled with pictures of white girls in pastel fighting against the patriarchy. And there’s nothing wrong with wanting to take back feminization! If that’s your preferred aesthetic, use it! But at the same time please know that there’ more appropriate terms for what you’re representing (squad, instead of gang maybe)

because where I grew up, gangs weren’t (and aren’t) something cool that you can just mess around with. They’re not something you can be after school or on the weekends. Gangs post a real threat

When I was 15, I moved to a different state and was shocked to see people wearing shirts in one solid single color. people were able to wear different shoelaces on each shoe and plain white t-shirts were allowed. Where I grew up, even as far back as the 5th grade, these things were a strict part of the “banned” portion of the dress code because of their gang affiliations. I remember days where anyone wearing red, or blue, or with Elmo on it was called to the office for questioning. This was normal and this was gang culture

people in my own family have been hurt and affected by gang violence but yeah, go ahead and glamorize it to get notes on your mixes, go ahead and spray paint “support your local girl gang” on the walls of your white neighborhood

anonymous asked:

How in the world are the writers treating iris disrespectfully? Just because they don't spend every episode thinking about how to make a westallen moment doesn't mean her character is being treated unfairly. She is an individual character. No need to be rotten because they're having more "snowboring" moments. They're trying to develop a plot.

Whoa anon excuse you! First off why are you Snowbunnies even trolling my blog? I would’ve thought the URL was dead give-a-away for what I post. Second I’m entitled to my opinions and I certainly don’t need you grey-face to tell me what I can and can’t post on my own blog. I don’t troll the Snow*arry tags and I definitely don’t post anything in there. If I have anything negative to say I appropriately post it in the anti tags. So I’m baffled as to how you found anything of mine when I don’t tag Snowbarry. My guess is you’ve been trolling tags for quite some time, maybe even trolled the Snowstorm tag. 

Let me just say that I have no problem with people’s shipping preferences when it comes to Snow*arry what I do have a problem with is the Flash writers needlessly pandering to a crackship which in turn starts effecting the quality of the show [especially the writing and the character assassination of Barry Allen]. For instance I ship Gobblepot on Gotham but I know darn well neither Jim Gordon or Oswald is gay [as far as I know] nor am I in denial that that he will suddenly fall in love with Penguin. Gobblepotters are smart enough to know Jim and Oswald aren’t going to end up together romantically and sexuality has nothing to do with it; its because Jim is good and Oswald/Penguin is destined to become evil. Which is exactly whats going to be the case when Caitlin Snow becomes Killer Frost a villain.

Gobblepotters love the interaction of our crackship for what it is in canon on the show just as most of us enjoy the show as a whole. We love our fantasy. We have fun writing head-canons and smut fan-fictions but that doesn’t mean we’re out there on twitter demanding the writers put Jim and Penguin together just because the actors have alot of chemistry. We’re not demanding the showrunners to drastically change comic canon for the sake of a crackship just because we’re amused by the interaction between Jim Gordon and Oswald Cobblepot which is what your fandom has been doing since before the Flash even started. Most of you refuse to accept what Barry and Caitlin’s relationship actually is on the show [strictly platonic] and completely disregard and deny the role Iris West plays in Barry’s life. You’d rather see her erased out of Barry’s life just so your favorite can snag the male lead.

 And you’ve yet to accept that Candice Patton is the female lead not Danielle Panabaker. What happened on Arrow was a fluke, no one saw it coming, and trying to lay claim that your ship is even remotely close to Olicity’s magical dynamic is purely laughable. Just because Arrow’s male lead didn’t click with his original leading lady doesn’t mean the same thing is going to happen on The Flash. Grant and Candice are phenomenal onscreen together whether you choose to see it or not. And yes she’s being sidelined for another actress to amuse the obvious Snow*arry ship. Of course you don’t care about that however if the roles were reversed and it was your ship that was comic canon while mine was a crackship dominating the airtime of your favorite you’d be singing a whole different tune nonnie.

The reality is Iris is Barry’s one and only. Lets say Barry and Caitlin do get together it’ll be a means to an end rebound from who they really love [WHICH IS RONNIE AND IRIS]. Even if the writers are idiotic enough to go off course and ruin comic canon for the sake of amusing your fandom, Caitlin’s villain’s fate is enviably sealed. Robbie Amell kinda confirmed this in his latest interview for his Firestorm character [x] Besides that IMO Barry isn’t just going to squash decades of feelings for Iris and suddenly fall head over heels for Caitlin. History has nothing to do with it, Barry hasn’t even been shown to be the slightest bit attracted to Caitlin whereas he is very much attracted to Iris and Linda. Unlike you I’ve accepted the reality of my ship Gobblepot but that doesn’t mean it’ll stop me from shipping them or enjoying them. 

I don’t expect the Gotham writers to keep giving me Gobblepot scenes the way you Snow*arrys have harassed the Flash writers for scenes [and got an entire crappy episode which earned low ratings and bad reviews]. I also wouldn’t want Gobblepot to actually happen if it meant the character assassination of both Jim and Penguin; in your case you don’t seem to care whether Barry Allen is in character or not as long as you get to see your ship sail. By all mean ship whatever you want I don’t give a crap but if its messing with the formula of the show then I do have a problem with your ship.
