Don’t get me wrong I’ve been fed up with the phandom since I joined this god awful place. I’m sure people have wanted me to leave anyway, so here you go.
I wonder what dan and phil really think of you all. Surely they must know all the dumb and disrespectful shit that goes on if they lurk as much as they say they do. Then again, i wonder… if they know how bad it is here, why haven’t they said anything? Why can’t they put their audience in check? I know everything is mostly light hearted and fun but it’s not fun for me anymore. The only people who think the phandom is a peaceful utopia are the ones causing the problems. Some people are too blind to see it and some people might even try to argue with me on this post. Go ahead, I’ll leave the phandom with a fight. One last round for all the wonderful times.
You don’t ship phan? You’re homophobic and you don’t belong here. Also you just want dan to yourself and youre labeling him as straight and (if you’re lgbt+) you’re faking your own sexuality to prove a point.
You write dan/phil x reader? You’re a cringey laughing stock. You’re also homophobic. You’re also a straight white girl.
It doesn’t help that dan and phil subtly use Phan™ to make their income. There’s nothing wrong with that, but i feel like it’s driven some people in the phandom to be entitled and rude and put them on a high horse. It just normalises their invasive behavior. It feeds their fantasies to the point where they become tinhats instead of shippers. To be honest, im fucking tired of it. Not of dan and phil per se, of their audience for being so dimwitted they can’t see the obvious fan service. Look on the bright side: two already successful, rich men are being more successful and rich.
Never have I met an audience more entitled and more bratty than this one. I can’t help but feel like dan and phil did have something to do with this, seeing as they never addressed the problems within their community. (I mean, dan tried to in 2012, but that year doesn’t exist!1!!1 meanwhile 2009 is hard hitting proof. seriously get over yourself.) It’s hard work, and I’m sure in Dan’s cynical eyes theres nothing that can be done about it, but it is possible. Look at jacksepticeye’s community. When do you ever hear about drama going on there? Do you see any type of hierarchy going on there? Now look at that phandom. I mean, throwing a fit because they slept on separate floors on tour?? Get over yourself. Accusing them of queerbaiting because they act like actual friends and roommates on camera?? Come ON. Sending hate to their friends? Are you really going to stoop that low, all in the name of a fictional ship? Even worse, when popular blogs send their followers on rampages when someone goes against the norm (the norm being shipping phan and constantly overanalyzing their every move.) It’s ridiculous.
Anyway, I could go on forever about the bad stuff in this place. I’d like to mention some of the good as well. I’ve come across plenty of wonderful people who have complimented me on my writing, people who have backed me up in the ‘not-shipping-phan’ thing. I technically got in my first relationship through this fandom. I have internet friends that I never want to let go of. I’ll always remember the people who sent me kind words when I went on hiatus.
Dan and Phil are a significant part of my life. They’ve gotten me through some tough shit, they’ve made me smile. I looked at their first book on the day it was released and was glad i didn’t kill myself. Dan made me feel less alone and more comfortable with my cynicism. Phil has calmed me and made me smile when i felt like the crying would never end.
But at the same time, they’re so aggravating! Why can’t they tell their audience to cool it? Sure, people will send sarcastically rude things to Dan and everyone will laugh and have a good time. But what about when people stalk their personal lives? What if either of them has a significant other and the phandom goes into a frenzy?
That’s honestly what’s kept me here for this long. There has always been a part of me that just hopes that they’ll acknowledge phan, or come forward with a significant other. I wanted to stick around to see that. But I’ve taken the phandom’s shit for a bit too long, and I’ve seen the phandom tear my friends to pieces. I cant take it anymore.
Sidenote: this blog isn’t going to deactivate. I’ll leave it up solely for the people who read my writing (if y'all are still out there lmao.) And I’ll probably talk about me and my girlfriend here, should i find the need. I probably won’t reblog Dan and Phil anymore. Not that it matters, I’ve been losing followers anyway. If anyone cares here are my main, jse, and aesthetic blogs. You can find me there.
Anyway congratu-fucking-lations, phannies. You win.
you know what I really like about contemporary Japanese Residential architecture? Some of it is like “fuck the outside, my house is more black than my soul, fuck windows in the front” *angry cat noises* and then , some of it is like “what about a facade, but it’s like cheese , yea with them holes in it, made out of the most transparant construction materials u own, please come in mi casa su casa u know”

Hello!! I just found this blog like 30 seconds ago and !!!! I love it so
far! I couldn’t find a set of rules, I hope I didn’t miss them but
anyways; Could I please ask for romantic hcs with Ace & Robin??
Thank you!! Good luck with your blog lovely 💖💖
A/N: *sits down on the grass* …. this is my first time doing HCs EVER please don’t be too strict on me 🦆 (and thank you so much, I know this request is a bit older but I hope you still think the same about my blog!!!)
Let me tell you guys, Ace is probably one of the most romantic characters in the whole One Piece universe
Is a sucker for anything romantic like ANYTHING
Loves to give as much as he possibly can but gets extremely flustered if his S/O gives something back
“Ohh.. you got this for me? Oh.. Oh my god- I- wow- you’re perfect- I- uh, oh goD”
Gets teased a lot by the other crewmembers but doesn’t care at all, as long as you like it he’s ready to make a fool out of himself for everyone to see
Makes the Whitebeard crew help with things, Thatch with the food, Marco with the right location, Vista with perfect decorations. He even threatens to burn all of their clothes if they don’t do it right…
…gets hit by marco afterwards
Loves to see his s/o smile at his presents/surprises/words etc.
Is very insecure, therefore always asks you about things, “Is this too much?”, “Do you like it?”, “Is this weird?” etc.
Decided to ask Izo for help once, because if Izo doesn’t know the answer then no one does. “do you think they’ll like it?”, both of them once sat the whole night together and scribbled down plans for your anniversary
ALWAYS whispers sweet nothings into your ear, especially when he feels sad about his past :(
tries his best to make you feel wanted, feels like crap if he fails
Fell asleep once while you guys were out having a little walk by the beach
He wouldn’t stop apologizing for a whole week
You just grabbed his face and planted a big kiss on his lips and told him to shut up
He was a red and giggly mess afterwards
UGH!!!! i love ace ლಠ益ಠ)ლ
Might not be as intense as Ace (surprise) but still has a sweet spot for romantic things
Loves to take a walk with her s/o at night, hands intertwined, swaying lightly back and forth
Talks not very much, but the more time you spend together, the more she starts to talk
Always has this cute smile with her eyes closed and head turned slighly to the side,,, YOU KNOW WHICH ONE
Sometimes, when you least expect it, puts a strand of hair behind your ear, stares into your eyes for a few seconds, smiles and then “You’re so cute.”
You melt, you literally just meLT
Tries to teach you how to read poneglyphs, but you fail miserably and just stare at her in awe
She notices quickly but ignores it, just keeps talking and laughs quietly at you staring
“Any questions?” - “Hm…? Oh! Yes. I mean no. No, no questions.”
Her favourite thing is when you recommend her a book, because “It reminded me of you and I thought you’d like to read it.”
She doesn’t need all of these extra things or expensive gifts s, your love for her is more than enough
Still brings you expensive things from time to time
“Robin! You didn’t need to get me this! This looks so expensive..” - “It just looked so cute and reminded me of you. I couldn’t help myself.”
You’re heart eyes for her and so am I, so is the rest of the world
Oh I know I'll just write a thing for this trashy pairing haha how fun I'll just make it a straightforward one-shot shippy thing that I don't need to take seriously.
*Writes several thousand words of set-up* okay I guess that's fine...
*Plans layers of complicated emotional subtext* okay I guess we can have some of that *Writes several more thousand words before getting past the first real shipping scene* uhhhh okay so guess it'll be chaptered...
*Plans entire rest of story and realises it's already out of control* goddamit me why are you like this.
Peeps! My Husband Wrote a Hannigram Drabble. Whuuut?!
He betas a lot of my AO3 stuff, so I guess he had read enough and decided to take a stab at it.
As the day’s waning brilliance showered the bedroom of the chateau in prismatic fractures, broken haphazardly by the chiseled antique glass window, that golden light folded across Hannibal’s muscular form in perfect chiaroscuro. His gaze was intent upon his darling boy, lazily sprawled across the mahogany four-poster.
Will drank in the visual of his lover’s body, that succulent splendor, and ached to draw the back of his fingers along those perfect lines, tracing muscles with the faint touch of his nails, disbelieving the reality of it all, feeling it all just too perfect to be true and waiting for the touch, the touch that would prove it real.
one time a friend and i were discussing how she’s worried about making the main characters of her book a pair of siblings because she really doesn’t want people shipping them and god if the same thought doesnt run through my head every time i make related OCs and the fact that content creators actually have to be concerned about the idea of their familial characters getting put in a popular ship together really just kind of shows how nasty fandoms can be lmfao
So it’s a week into this season and every show has had at least one episode now (I think). I’ll go through what I’ve watched and say what I think so far. I guess spoilers for episode 1, but are those really spoilers?
The premise is that after graduating angel or demon school said angels or demons go to earth and go to school there so that they can learn to be proper angels or proper demons. The main character is a decidedly unangelic angle that gets hooked on online games and becomes a shut in, while the rest of the cast is filled in with characters equally ill suited to their roles. This looks pretty entertaining and it’s basically Doga Kobo doing what they do best. It doesn’t seem like a show that I’m going to remember down the road, but it’s a nice moe SoL to watch. The humor has been pretty good too, so I’ve got decent expectations from it.
Little Witch Academia
I’m super excited for LWA and the first episode was great. The original OVA that was kick started was fantastic and set this all in motion, so that alone is kind of cool to see. I’d call the show a moe SoL, but it’s really a Trigger SoL with moe elements. Is it moe? I don’t even know lol, but I’ve got high expectations for it and I don’t think Trigger is going to let me down. They are good at the over the top crazy, and I think that they can do a great over the top wacky magical shenanigans show. Definitely high hopes for this show.
Kono Subarashii no Sekai ni Shukufuku wo! 2 (Konosuba s2)
That mouthful of a title aside, it’s more konosuba. The animation seems like it’s even more “quality” than last season, but that doesn’t bother me too much. The kinda cobbled together sometimes almost bad animation kinda adds to the show. But there is probably a limit to that and I hope they don’t find it lol. The Star Wars credits were a hilarious way to start off this season, and I hope that it continues to amuse me as much as it has already. I’ve got decent expectations of this show, but I’m not holding out for it to be incredible.
Demi-chan wa Katatirai
The premise of this show is that there are demi humans in the world and the teacher of this school is interested in learning more about them by interviewing them. Naturally a bunch of them end up at his school so this gets to happen. I was a little concerned about the possible weird teacher-student relationships that this sort of show can get into, but after two episodes I don’t think it will be like that at all. The cast seems pretty alright, with Hikari and the teacher being great characters. I’ll watch this show just for Hikari’s antics even if it somehow gets worse. I don’t think this will be an amazing show, but once again a nice cute SoL to fill the time.
Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon
Sort of an unexpected title for Kyoani to be adapting, but it seems to be working so far. The premise is that Tohru (the dragon) becomes Kobayashi’s maid because on a drunken adventure Kobayashi pulled a holy sword out of her and then said she could stay with her. I picked up the first volume of the manga awhile back because buy two get one free sales make me do silly things and I really enjoyed it. There is a nice amount of good jokes and then some just funny moments with Tohru being a dragon and doing dragon things. I expect this to keep me thoroughly entertained, but it probably won’t be one of Kyoani’s truly marvelous show. Gonna be hard to follow Hibike S2 lol.
So ya, that’s what I’ve watched for this season. I don’t know if I’ll really get around to anything else this season, but these at least all look like they’ll be fine watches. I have the most hope and expectations from Little Witch Academia, and I’m particularly excited that it is 2 cour.
okay i’m going to go ahead and type up some of my thoughts here. It’s gonna be a little shorter than I thought originally, and also please keep in mind that i’m kinda dumb and i’m no meta writer or like.. a good theorist (unless we are playing the How Wrong Will Carol Be This Month game) so i’m not like… good at it. Here’s my snk 93 Ymir thoughts and some thoughts in general about the current state of things.
