i don't know which tag people use

Dear harmos,

Please don’t ruin this for Mani by saying insane things and alienating her fanbase from the others. She needs all the support she can get and it needs to come by way of her dancing prowess and overall presence on the show. You can be supportive of Normani without demeaning other people’s favorites okay?

Thanks,

management

me: alright you have some time to do things not related to school before u go drown in schoolwork for the weekend go do some of ur to-do list

me to me: draw raskreia with more characters

me: fuck 

i blame several people for not negating my trashy self in regards to m-21 in lukedonian attire and raskreia interacting with more characters in general :’)

I SPENT WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THIS but anyways, this is my presentation on why you should get into Folklore if you haven’t done so already. This game is very near and dear to my heart, and the fact that Cryaotic is playing it makes me want to explain exactly why this game is so great. (Psst: here’s a youtube playlist with the awesome Folklore OST if you want to have a listen.)

A note about tagging stuff related to Folklore - you can use folklore (game) or folkssoul / folksoul (which is the Japanese name). The fandom has been small for a while, so we always love more fans!

What the…? How Shaladin ships are “toxic and abusive”…? I am so done - you casually go into newest “Shance” tag to see some fluff and you get smashed in the face with some nonsense like this.

I haven’t even bothered to cover the username, I don’t see the point. Whatever.

I want to know in which way Shaladin ships are so TOXIC and ABUSIVE.

It’s just that “stop hating on rick he’s trying his best” makes it sound like he’s some kid trying to learn how to ride a bike and we’re making fun of him for falling off. as if he’s reading our blogs and crying himself to sleep at night on his bed of money that we as his consumers gave him. as if us complaining that his comments were lesbophobic and biphobic is somehow bullying like we’re making fun of his hair and the way he smells. We’re literally (mostly) just teenagers ranting on our personal blogs about a man who told us he’d do better than his predecessors and then ignored us when he messed up. We are not hurting his reputation (which u all defend so valiantly), his wealth, or even his ego. He’s not reading our blogs and he obviously doesn’t care that we’re upset. Ur defending nothing and sending vitriolic messages to us in the name of nothing. But have fun on ur pedestal of superiority where u can wave around how much better u are than us for praising allies as our saviors and sending hate to people who are, ya know, actually effected by it rather than a middle aged man who won’t remember this come his next paycheck.

Is there a snack you like to eat while writing?

Usually Oxygen but no, not really.

What time of day do you usually write?

I used to write at night like really late at night but since I discovered that night time is meant for sleeping and I started using it for that, I write usually during afternoons or evenings or while the night is still young.

Where do you write?

On a bed. Anyone’s for that matter and not necessarily my own.

How often do you write a new thing?

As often as I want to.

Do you listen to music while you write?

I like to concentrate while writing, so, nope.

Paper or laptop?

My love and I have a connection which makes it easier for words to flow, so it’s always my dear laptop.

Do you have a special pre-writing ritual?

Yeah like, umm…, oh wait, no I don’t.

What do you do to get into the writing?

It just happens, I guess.

Do you have a reward system for word counts?

Before this question, I‘ve never even thought about word count.

Is there anything else about your writing process your readers don’t know about?

I use a secret word processor which the world does not know about yet but you know what I’ll reveal the secret today.
It’s called MS Word.

Now I think they know everything.


Tagging everyone who would like to do this. Please do tag me if you do this, I’d love to read your answers :)

I'm absolutely confused about antis. I'm again in the ygo fandom and I've seen I kid you not no antis tearing puzzleshipping apart, that ship should be the pinnacle of problematic! A friendly anonymous user looked in the anti tags to just check if antis exist they found nothing! Antis definitely exist in the ygo fandom but how was this ship ignored!? I love this ship but I'm honestly very shocked! This is a considered healthy ship in the ygo fandom even by the people who don't like it!

Alright, here’s another hot take that might get me labeled unsavory, but I believe I know the answer.

The YGO fandom in the US dates to 2001-2002, which was a far more innocent time for fandom in general. The social justice excuse was never used to prop up a ship, so people had to look to the show to figure out what made sense and what didn’t. Essentially, people didn’t use the excuses the Voltron “fandom” (I question if these people are even fans of the show sometimes) did and by the time they came around, opinions were far too entrenched to be changed.

Voltron unfortunately was made in a post Steven Universe and a post Korra world, with the downside of using the same animation studio as Korra despite not sharing the same writers (to the series’ eternal benefit). These fans are rabid because they have been shown that yes, the show will pander to minority groups for social justice brownie points, and that fan opinion could sway romance.

This disregards three things:

1 - Neither of those two shows are driven by boy targeted merchandise. Voltron is and is selling giant robot toys like it’s the 80’s again.

2. Korra only made its same sex pairing canon in the last 16 seconds of the show, which is why I will always dismiss it as a cheap attention ploy.

3. Steven Universe has become an example of how a fandom shouldn’t act.

That said, I get why people are defensive of what is rare representation, but it doesn’t excuse the actions of the fanbase.

tl;dr: Puzzleshipping comes from a healthier fanbase during a simpler time, before entitlement took hold. The show proves it isn’t an evil thing.

anonymous asked:

Other than being negative, what does Darkness Dream act like? I don't really know much about him, love his design, though. And, what would it be like if him, Cross, and DS Dream met?

I think you ought to just read the stuff tagged Darkness!Dream from the beginning. Compared to the insane number of things tagged #dreamswapasks (which is currently 558 holy frick) there isn’t a whole lot. It doesn’t go into a lot of specifics, but it’ll probably give you a basic idea. If you haven’t read his ‘origin story’, either, you should probably do that.

As for people meeting, funny how I used to get questions like that often enough that I put it in the Dreamswap FAQ. I don’t really like to put Dreamswap and Darkness!Dream together since they differ so much in style.

As for Cross, though, I had this idea that either Dream would never meet him because Cross never works for Nightmare, or if he does, Nightmare makes sure they stay far away from each other. In the situation that Cross actually starts working for Nightmare and goes to his castle and stuff, it’s one of those things–you don’t go anywhere near Dream. Cross is probably stupid enough to try and do it anyway. Just some ideas, though.

English Rose pt. 1 [Spencer Reid]

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4

Spencer x fem!reader

Summary // Spencer and Y/N have been together for a while and have some normal relationship struggles and some other a bit more abnormal

A/N // So this is inspired by the song English Rose by Ed Sheeran so if you listen to that it might make  a little more sense, stand alone it’s a bit odd. Either way, I decided this in 3rd person as it’s my most comfortable POV to write in and yeah that’s it, I hope you enjoy it :)

“I’m sure you’re right love, still It’s a boring show and it doesn’t really matter if its facts are correct then or not, doesn’t cure boredom.” He had always loved her English accent and still did, despite having been in the US since she was five she refused to change the way she spoke, insisting that since English originated from England, she was saying them the right way, it was a little stubborn but he loved her accent so he didn’t mind it.

I feel bad because I'm a TSC and Shadowhunters blog, but I don't know what the specified "book tags" and "show tags" are, and I see a ton of people getting mad that there are show things in the book tags, and I'm probably contributing to that. Could you help me out with which tags are specifically book tags? Thank you so much!

sure

when making tags for a tv show post, just use tags of things that are in the show. not “the dark artifices” and “the shadowhunter chronicles” and “kierark”

don’t tag books out of the mortal instruments series like “lord of shadows” and “lady midnight”

its obv. 100% ok to tag “malec” and “sizzy” and all the characters that have been introduced in the show 

us book fans just don’t want our book tags to be flooded with tv content

anonymous asked:

why use the terms mtf and ftm? they're pretty grossly cissexist and basically define trans men and women as these "inbetweens" who aren't really their gender. i know some trans people use them, but that's usually out of ignorance or a lack of confidence in their identity - that's why i did it. i feel it's more useful to help people understand that they don't have to put themselves down or prescribe to cissexist ideas of gender (which we all have to unlearn, not just those who use the term).

Charlie says:

yes, I agree with a lot of this!! As far as I know we aren’t actively using those words, as they’re outdated.  However, it isn’t our place to tell askers how to classify themselves so we don’t say anything but tag the label.  Thank you for providing your insight, it’s definitely true that a lot of us have internalized cissexism, whether subconscious or not.

anonymous asked:

You jonerys shippers need to learn how to look at your own tag and leave people who tag their anti posts correctly the fuck alone. You guys are using the SEARCH function, which lets you see those posts. All you need to do is put a hashtag in front of jonerys and you won't see those posts (on pc or mobile). Don't blame people who are tagging correctly, and instead learn how to use tumblr.

Lol, no. YOU guys learn. I would never make a post and tag it anti another ship, knowing full well it will still show up in their tag. Have some courtesy if you want to receive it back.
Maybe stop spending your days writing anti posts to begin with.

And just like you think it is your right to send me this cowardly anon complaint, it is my right to reply when you fill our tag with your bullshit 😁😁😁😁😁

anonymous asked:

I don't really ship pidge and hunk romantically but you guys really missed the opportunity to call the ship Punk

I only really ship it platonically, but I know, 99.9% of hidge shippers already know about punk. The reason most of us don’t call it that is because searching that tag will not get us hidge because there is already a thing called punk and we would just get aesthetic posts instead of hidge posts. Because of this, its best to get in the habit of calling the ship hidge since that’s a more unique name which will make tag searching easier. Same reason why people don’t search the tag “forest fire” for kidge art, you’d just get images of plants on fire. Trust me, we know about punk

Why Joan Watson is Exceptional (Specifically in Holmesiana)

Because I have such a broad interest in Sherlock Holmes, one which has encompassed more than half my life so far (not that big of a deal- I’m twenty seven), I get to see a lot of different comments about a lot of different adaptations.  Some comments are full of praise, some are very negative, and some are eyebrow raising.  

When it comes to Elementary, it won’t surprise a lot of fans that a lot of the mainstream Holmesians treat it with a derisive sneer.  They have lots of different complaints and opinions that they levy at it, but I think one of my favourites is “They made Watson into a woman as a gimmick- and not even an original gimmick, since Watson has been a woman before.”

The critics are absolutely right, of course.  Watson has been portrayed as a woman before.  Probably the most well known women Watsons are Dr. Mildred Watson (played by Joanne Woodward) from They Might Be Giants and Amy Winslow (played by Debrah Farentino) from 1994 Baker Street: Sherlock Holmes Returns.  There are others, of course.  Many web series have had women Watsons, including The Adventures of Jamie Watson (and Sherlock Holmes); S(her)lock; Herlock; Baker Street; and In Hot Pursuit- which is only the tip of the iceberg.  I’m sure there are others I’m unfamiliar with. And then there’s non-English/non-Western women Watsons, such as Jane Watson (played by Galina Shchepetnova) from Russia’s My Dearly Beloved Detective and a number of actresses who’ve played Watson in Korea’s musicals Sherlock Holmes: The Secret of the Anderson Family and the sequel Sherlock Holmes: Bloody Games.  Watson as a woman is certainly nothing new, and I’ve barely explored the topic.  These are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head.

The issue here is that people claim that Elementary’s Joan Watson is a gimmick because she is woman, conveniently ignoring that she is specifically a non-white woman.  And that is not common- it is in fact incredibly rare, if not unheard of.

I was privileged to have the opportunity to assist @sanguinarysanguinity with her fanvid, “Something Good (Will Come From That),” which if you haven’t watched yet, you really need to go look at it now.  One of Sang’s goals was to have as many non-white, non-male Holmes’ or Watsons as possible, and it was partly my job to find them.  While I was lucky and was able to find some non-Western versions of Holmes and Watson that weren’t white, it was impossible to find a non-white, non-male Watson in a Western visual medium.

(I am not going to address non-Western versions of Holmes and Watson.  There are two reasons for this.  The first is that it was hard for me to find adaptations in non-Western media to begin with, simply because I didn’t have language skills required, although you will note the Korean musicals above and their women Watsons; the second is because I am specifically going to be talking about Joan Watson from Elementary going forward, and so I only want to compare Western medias.)

It is easy to sneer at the idea of a woman Watson if you try to pretend that she’s unoriginal because there have been other women Watsons.  Except that we fall into the trap, here, of assuming that white womanhood is universal.  It is an easy trap to fall into, and one we fall into a lot.  Look at the way we white women hail any media that puts women front and center, conveniently forgetting that most of those so-called feminist films and TV shows only feature white women.  White womanhood isn’t universal, and white women have far more representation in media than women of color or non-white women.  

Look at that list of women Watsons I put forward above.  With the exception of the Korean musicals, every single one of those women Watson are white.  Even in all the web series, which are not beholden to executive interference or marketing, have only had white women in the role of Watson.  (As an aside, it should be noted that S(her)lock’s Watson is a transwoman.)  While Holmesians have bent enough to grudgingly accept the idea of a woman Watson, we have not yet accepted on a larger scale a non-white woman in the role.

Enter Elementary’s Joan Watson.  A Chinese-American woman Watson.  The first woman of color playing Watson in mainstream Western media.  The only woman of color playing Watson in mainstream Western media.

This is huge.  You might not think it’s huge, but it is.  Plenty of people have talked about how important representation is in media.  Many Asian-American women have talked about how important Joan Watson is to them. Many people have talked about how important it is to have an Asian-American woman in a lead role on a major network, and specifically a role that everyone in the world has at least name recognition with.  Elementary’s Joan Watson is important.  

On a microcosmic scale, she’s important for Holmesiana, too.  Once upon a time, it was impossible to fathom Holmes or Watson as anything other than British white men.  People who questioned that status quo were met with shock- if you look at Ellery Queen’s editorials, he notes that people greeted Rex Stout’s 1941 speech “Watson Was a Woman” with “Holmesian horror.”  Attitudes can shift, however, which is why there are women Holmes’ and Watsons out there. Not nearly enough, of course, but they’re out there, and generally accepted.  It is not nearly as surprising to encounter a (white) woman Holmes or Watson as it used to be.

Which means that Joan Watson has the potential to further break down the barriers in Holmesiana.  Joan Watson’s very existence normalizes a non-white Watson.  For some people, Joan Watson was how they came to Holmesiana as a whole.  Others will look at Elementary and then look at all Sherlock Holmes media going forward and ask if they, too, can have non-white characters in the lead.  Joan Watson is the first and currently the only, which makes her exceptional.  

I want to say that again: Joan Watson is exceptional, and Holmesiana as a whole- the old guard in particular- need to back the fuck off.  It doesn’t matter if you think making Joan Watson a Chinese-American woman is a gimmick.  It doesn’t matter if it was a gimmick.  What matters is that people are seeing her, and she wears the Watson name. It matters that she is a main character on Elementary.  It matters that she is smart, capable, compassionate, strong, an individual.  Joan Watson is exceptional, and it’s about time that Holmesiana sucks it up and accepts it.  

Someday, people will look at Elementary and credit it with shaping Holmesian adaptations.  Think of how the Gillette play and silent film shaped all Holmesian adaptations after it, or the Rathbone films’ influence, or how our three present Holmesian adaptations have an homage to Granada in some way.  All of these adaptations did something specific that influenced everything that came after.  Elementary, and specifically Joan Watson, has the potential to create a new trajectory, to lay a new path, to inspire creators who come after.

Joan Watson is important, and she is exceptional, and it’s time we fucking recognize it.

I was tagged by @thatnerdyblondegirl to do the tag game of describing myself using only saved images!

@thatnerdyblondegirl thank you so much for tagging me ❤❤

So yeah, my saved images are basically monsta x and btob memes, because I have a friend who doesn’t know kpop at all, so I keep teasing him with memes to convince him to listen to it. It also made me realize I am low on hyungwon memes, which are my favorite

This memes actually describe me pretty well because I am really memeish person ahshisjdosks

I will tag @kihosprincess, @ljh-94, @irishthanhy, @chiqkihyun, @yoloyeoloh, @minhyuksfatgf, @ykhyun, @shownusbabygirl, @unleash-jeon-cena

  • ransom: was so infamously gay for a particular fictional character that people (mostly online friends but also a couple strangers) actually wrote fanfic/rpf about me with him, still easily findable through the tag system if you know what the ship name was
  • holster: was forced into choir for a year and hated the teacher so much, i did the "call them by the wrong name to show them you don't care" thing, but i used "treble cleff" which was similar to her name and pretended it was a cute music nickname, became her favourite student for it
  • lardo: bought 3 sets of mannequin legs, 1 torso, and a singular arm from a clothing store that was going out of business, made them installation pieces in my house

  • tango: doodled instead of paying attention in math class and i was trying and failing to draw a spider web so when the teach asked "any questions" i said "how do you draw a spider web" and she immediately turned around and drew one on the board for me like "are you getting this" and i was like "thanks" and went back to drawing as she slowly realised that was not a math question
  • whiskey: participated in a day of silence event but i was never given the official mask for it so i just duct taped my mouth shut instead
