The Spider-Man: Homecoming trailer has been out for less than 12 hours and I get on Tumblr to see endless posts of people complaining about Tony Stark, a post comparing Tony Stark fans to Donald Trump supporters, and anonymous hate mail in my inbox because I’m excited about Tony being in Spider-Man.
Like honestly let us like what we like guys, I’m so tired of this fandom. It’s okay if you don’t like Tony Stark, you don’t have to, but please stop trying to bring down and hate on the people who do. It’s like some people think we’re genuinely fundamentally bad people for liking a specific fictional character, and I don’t get it.
Peridot gave Amethyst the basic breakdown of the tools they’ll be using. After the success of the chocolates Peridot made for Valentine’s Day Amethyst asked for a lesson on making them.
“For Valentine’s Day I just made your basic truffles and shelled chocolates, we can do those today,” Peridot started going over the lesson plan. “But I think we should also have fun doing something more complex.”
Peridot’s expression told Amethyst that she was supposed to guess. She thought of stuff she’s seen on TV.
Then it hit her.
“Are we gonna make a chocolate sculpture?”
A nod confirmed Amethyst’s guess.
A huge grin spread across Amethyst’s face. “How big are we gonna make it?”
“Not too big,” Peridot replied as she put chocolate into the double-boiler. “I only have so much chocolate. Besides, too big and you can’t bring it home. Imagine Pearl’s face when she sees the piece of art you made.”
“You mean the sculpture we made. I won’t have as much fun if you aren’t making it with me.”
That went against Peridot’s plan but when she looked in Amethyst’s eyes she gave in.
“Alright. I have to admit, I’m surprised you didn’t jump at the chance to shock Pearl.”
Amethyst shrugged. “Maybe some other time.”
As the chocolate melted the two talked about various things, work, upcoming movies, terrible reboots to classic cartoons, how disappointing a certain game was, you know, the usual.
The time finally came for the lesson on tempering chocolate. Peridot gave instructions as Amethyst spread out the chocolate.
But there was a problem, Peridot was taking it too seriously, especially for such a cute tutor.
She made a decision.
Amethyst ‘accidentally’ spread melted chocolate all over Peridot’s arm.
“Hey,” Peridot looked mad at first then her features softened as she started to laugh. “You did that on purpose.”
“I had to, you were all serious and frowny. This is supposed to be fun.”
“Okay, maybe I was being too serious.” Peridot reached for some paper towel to clean herself off.
“Hang on, I got this,” Amethyst stopped Peridot.
Amethyst licked the chocolate off of Peridot’s arm which made her break into slightly grossed-out giggles.
I don’t get why people want Sam and Dean to have a healthier relationship. If I wanted to watch a show about healthy family relationships I’d go watch the Waltons or something. Let me see the Winchesters so tangled up in each other that they don’t know what’s right and what’s wrong. I want them off kilter and unpredictable. I want to see them dangerous and scarred and on the run, not sitting at home making friends and having fucking brunch, you know?
I just feel that making the Winchesters more “healthy” or well adjusted would be such a fuck up. They’ve lived a life full of trauma, they went to hell, they’ve seen everyone they love die. You want to diminish all that? After the life they’ve been through, there’d be nothing more uncharacteristic than to be be well adjusted.
That you can ship who you want, be it a canon ship, or a non-canon ship, or f/f or m/m or an OT3 or whatever you want. You do you, friends.Don’t let anyone make you ashamed of it or feel weird about it.
And you can rant about it in my inbox, too, bc that’s always fun.
Yeah, like sorry if I want Harry to have the best team possible. And sorry if I want to celebrate his record/distribution deal when he announces it. Sorry if I want to hear about his plans from him and not from a random old dude (who of course is credible, but I don't care about him lol). Like... I just want to be happy for my kids and I want to see them be happy about their plans. So yeah. His team sucks. Harry RULES. Bye.
Exactly. Criticise his team =/ hate on Harry. I want him to have a big album, smashing hits, good name recognition just like I want ALL of them to have. But he’s team situation /is/ shady and pointing that out doesn’t mean we hate him. We call Louis team out every single day, but we’re still supporting him with every tiny piece of our ourselves. Same goes for Harry. Is not a crime to want some answers after all the bullshit everyone got for years
I need to write this to get something of my chest because wherever I go I just see hate from this lovely community towards jack and I just can’t be silent.
Jack came out with a video about this Felix thing yesterday and I understand why. Everyone wanted to hear what he had to say. Everyone was asking and asking so Jack answered and then the fucking hate storm came. A lot of people (not saying everyone) started to hate on jack and giving him a lot of shit because of his opinion and I’m not saying I’m agreeing on everything he said but I’m not sitting and hate him. Come on, we are suppose to be the nicest community and then when jack says one thing we don’t agree with we attack him and giving him shit for it. WE FUCKING ASKED, WE WANTED ANSWER, WE CAN’T BE ANGRY BECAUSE HE FUCKING ANSWERED.
So I was around twitter last night and saw that people talked about what Keemstar had said about jack and so I went to his twitter page and saw this video he did and I’m just..wtf. Okay Keemstar and everyone else agreeing with him, I understand what you mean and I understand that you are disagreeing about things jack said but you can’t come and say that you hate jack because of his opinions. That is just bullshit. He said what he thinking about this thing and his options matter too. Isn’t this just what started it all? Some people (let’s call them the A-people) had one way to see this and when other people (let’s call them the B-People) had another opinion a-people started to shit on the b-people because obviously was they right and b-people was so wrong but then b-people heard about what the a-people said and the didn’t agree with them so they started to fight back because they were right aaaand drama happened and people was hating on each other and so so angry. Do you all don’t understand that this won’t fix ANYTHING you are just starting more fights and more drama ffs.
Keemstar also said that jack is only thinking about himself??? whats up with that? Jack being selfish? Okay we obviously thinks about to different people..no? he meant jack like in jacksepticeye? The wonderful green bean? one of the most nicest person on youtube? that jack? Okay, listen. Jack is not selfish for saying that it’s sad that scare pewdiepie is canceled because he had a big part of it. He wasn’t selfish he was understanding. He had put down time for this. He knew others had put down a lot of time for this show and he knew Felix had put down a lot of his time for this show and to see that so many people (him included) had worked on this show for a good amount of time made him sad because he was excited, like the rest of them, to see the finished product of this show. He was not selfish to be sad because he had a big role in this one he was sad because he had a big role and I think that if anyone of us was in jack’s position we would be sad to and I don’t think we would have wanted people around us say that it was selfish to think like that.
Lastly I just want to say that I’m so angry on this community and for the first time I’m a little disappointed to be a part of this community and that is not easy for me to say. I freaking love this community, this is my second family and it means a lot to me but what has happened since jack video came out had made me very angry. There is people in this community (and again, not saying everyone) that have said that jack is a selfish man, that he has changed and that he only thinks about himself and what others says about him and please, are we for real watching about talking about two different persons because I can’t say things like that about jack, I don’t get it. I understand you don’t have the same opinion as jack and that you don’t agree with him, I’m not agreeing with all the things he said but I’m not sitting here and hating on him. Something Mark said in his respect video (you should look it up if you haven’t watched it) got me thinking about this situation. You don’t need to agree with someone to respect them. You can disagree with someone and still respect them. I think that is something for you all that are hating on jack for just saying his opinions and also for you hating on Felix but that is a whole other rant to write about and one I won’t put my thoughts in right now.
I just hope this drama will die down soon and everything will go back to normal because I’m tired of this hate that has started. Jack’s community is a community I don’t recognize any longer. Marks community (which I’m also a part of) are also full of hate and let’s not even talk about Felix’s community it is chaos there.
But I’m begging you all to just respect peoples opinions, you can argument with them and say what you think but don’t hate on someone just because you don’t agree with them, it won’t fix anything.
I don’t know if this rant has made any sense but I just needed to say what I think about this jack drama that happened. If some of you actually read this whole text and didn’t throw you phone, computer or ipad away because of this text or because of all the wrong grammar in this text (i’m from Sweden so I’m sorry for all the wrong grammar!!) But if you have read this text and are thinking you want to talk with me about this drama please, my ask is always open, so come and talk to me!
And people I was speaking with last night know why I’m posting this.
See, you need to stop being fooled by appearances. You need to stop being fooled by tweets. You need to stop thinking you know anything just because “oh he said so and so” or “she said so and so”. It’s all about letting out what they want out, WHEN they want it out.
Admiral T. Goldwyn WAS in fact on the red carpet at the Golden Globes. Keeping an eye on things. Seeing fake spouses being dismissed. All that.
is there anyone else who only daydreams about other people? like i hardly ever daydream about myself usually it’s a character i’ve constructed to interact in the world of one of my fandoms, or ocs in certain scenarios such as a zombie apocalypse or horror movie plot. i see everyone talking about this ‘idealised version of themselves’ but i never really exist in my daydreams. some of my characters might have parts of my personality or something i suffer from, such as anxiety, but my daydreams usually look like a tv show or movie or comic book with the characters rarely being me or looking much like me
I’ve been thinking about my life and all of
the mistakes that I’ve made – the ones that stay with me or the ones that I
regret are the ones that I made because of fear. For a long time I was afraid to be who I am
because I was taught by my parents that there’s something wrong with someone
like me – something offensive, something you will avoid, maybe even pity.
Something that you could never love.
My mom – she’s a fan of St. Thomas Aquinas
and she calls Pride a sin. And of all
the venal and moral sins St. Thomas saw pride as the queen of the seven deadly
sins. He saw it as the ultimate gateway
sin that would turn you quickly into a sinaholic. But hating isn’t a sin on that list. Neither is shame.
I was afraid of this parade because I
wanted so badly to be a part of it. So
today I’m marching for that part of me that was once too afraid to march and
for all the people who can’t march: the
people living lives like I did. Today I
march to remember that I’m not just a me. I’m also a we and we march with
