Did you see the posts about h/dekan/e shippers sending death threats to ishida? I can't believe so many people would do that.
I did, Anon. And I really wish that everyone posting about it/reblogging it would actually take the time to read and assess the information in the now infamous receipt images and posts addressing the matter.
In the images provided with the “receipts”, not a single post/tweet screencapped and pasted over the image of Touka is a death threat. Not. A. One. It’s all just reactions/salt, from people’s personal accounts after chapter 125.
There may have been death threats sent to Ishida, and there’s no doubt in my mind that some numbskulls did send some, but the posts circulating do not actually provide any substantial proof to this claim. I honestly wish that people would stop spreading the posts, who’s images allegedly originated on Reddit to cause a stir, so that no one on those lists gets harassed for just being vocal about their salt, especially since they were all posts made to personal accounts.
As for the any mentions of actual articles describing the threats, the first ones that used the images to back their claims were most likely clickbait, unless I am really misunderstanding something. I am absolutely 100% against sending Ishida threats of any sort, so no, I am not just trying to excuse the actions of certain Tokyo Ghoul fans. I would never do that. Spreading incorrect information, though, helps no one.
tl;dr Ishida may have received death threats, but the posts going around do not provide proof of such threats, as they consist of screenshots of salt, not threats. Please check sources and look into extremely serious things like this before spreading what could be false information, dangerously presented as solid fact.
So after Louis’ tweet about Devlin, people pointed out that Harry followed them. Some said he followed after Louis’ tweet, which was debunked…but then everyone just seemed to settle on the follow being a couple weeks ago?
Which…people track these things now, and whenever the guys follow someone, it gets posted on social media…so people would know if it was recent-ish.
I’m procrastinating doing something else, so I decided to look into it.
Spoiler alert: Harry has followed Devlin for…years.
I can’t narrow it down to an exact date, but I was able to narrow it down looking for tweets indicating Harry had followed a famous account.
There’s a tweet from June 23, 2011 saying that Harry followed Rosso’s. Harry followed Rosso’s 10 people before following Devlin.
There’s a tweet from May 8, 2012 indicating that Harry was following Greg James. It’s not clear whether Harry had just followed him or not. Harry followed Devlin approximately 90 people before following Greg James.
Pretty wide gap there, but…
I couldn’t find any tweets for when Harry followed Coldplay, but on August 1, 2011 there’s a few tweets with #coldplayfollowharrystyles, so shall we assume that Harry was following Coldplay before that? Harry followed Devlin before Coldplay.
So it feels like a safe bet that sometime in 2011 between June 23rd and August 1st, Harry followed Devlin.
(I’m laughing/cringing at good ‘ole Rusty being in this screenshot…heh…)
remember that tweet about flint's earring having changed from gold to silver and how little in the show happens by accident? i just can't bring myself to believe that the same writers who did that also made all the flinthamilton and silverflint parallels to basically end up saying "they love each other but just in a friend way haha" i don't know it just doesn't make any sense to me
s a m e
I think we can all agree nothing makes any fucking sense at this point and nothing will until 409/410. But yeah, that ‘little happens by accident’ has been haunting my ass ever since Toby said it. I mean of course parallels as obvious and as frequent as this must have been done on purpose. We know this. We know its partly because of the similarities they wanted to show between them; Thomas and Silver being Flint’s closest friends, both of them being his partners. We also know that its because they’re leading up to Flint’s relationship with Silver being ‘a summation of all the relationships hes had so far’. But whether or not its romantic WE JUST DONT KNOW.
Looking at everything we’ve been presented with it does makes sense for it to be romantic, of course. Because its the best explanation (at this point). If they had focused more on paralleling Miranda/Flint with Silver/Flint to show their friendship/partnership I would understand that the writers weren’t going for romantic. BUT. THEY. DIDNT. Thomas looking at James: “strange pairs, lieutenant. they can achieve the most unexpected things>:)” [pans to James looking at John]. I mean !!!!!! They paralleled Silver with Thomas from the beginning. And then as if that wasn’t obvious enough they start paralleling Madi with Miranda. So yeah, like you said I dont believe the writers did all this just to label Silver as the love of Flint’s life in a ‘platonic way’. Seems a bit dramatic to build this relationship up over 4 seasons and at the end just say ‘flint was silver’s best friend. thats it. thats what he was to him”. There’s something more going on here that we don’t know about yet.
“Thomas was my husband. I loved him and he loved me. But what he shared with you, it was entirely something else.” I’ve always believed this is the same case for Silver and Flint. Silver loves Madi and Madi loves Silver, but what Silver shares with Flint is entirely something else. We just dont know what the ‘something else’ is yet. But we’ll find out soon enough, just hold tight.
i don’t know if everyone has read the news yet but usa network decided not to renew eyewitness. however i do still believe there is hope for someone else to pick it up. adi tv studios just tweeted about it and it seems like they haven’t lost all hope either.
Omg I just saw a tweet stating how great it was that Sherlock realized he's in love with Molly in the I Love You Scene and how beautiful and genuine it was when he told her and I just can't. How can you interpret this scene like that. Even if I didn't believe in TJLC I would never even have the idea that Sherlock is in love with Molly now after he was forced to tell her that. Sorry to bother you with that bs but I got so worked up because of this I needed to rant.
Yeah, plus the Other Discourse going around, it’s a regular Gong Show. It’s not a bother Nonny, simply because I was in a theatre of Other Shippers and they ALL THOUGHT THAT IT WAS GENUINE, so I get you. Like….. the girls next to me squeaked and cheered. Like, no. that was… so gross??? I just… am genuinely concerned if their standards for shipping are so low that… they will take having their favourite character's arc destroyed all for the sake of having trailer bait… and then proceed to tell us how amazing it was? Like, uhm, no, we never wanted that for John and most certainly NOT for Molly. I am ANGRY because I related to Molly’s character once upon a time, and just… hate that after all the development she went through in S3, she just regressed back to S1 Molly. I just… don’t get it.
Just like everyone else I’m excited to see how it’s laid out and how they’ll accompany it. We know the london apartment so well because they did in fact live there for five years. Everyone has been in that apartment. So this new place will have a lot of getting used to.
I’m excited for the new backgrounds and the new stories that will happen in this flat. More creepshot wars, more tweets of them getting comfortable in it. New gaming videos where they are comfortable without feeling like a disturbance. New baking videos with (hopefully) a breakfast bar again.
More room to breathe.
also, Pinof 9 will happen in this flat.
Just the fact that they’re so incredibly happy makes me happy. They deserve to have bigger space that’s quiet and where they can feel at peace without hearing constant drilling or their neighbors all the time.
I also love how they compared themselves moving to the emotional ending to FRIENDS. Because in some cases when YouTubers say a big announcement like that it does usually continue with “I’m gonna stop making videos for a bit” because they’re either going on tour or a life thing happened, or they’re just done.
Dan and Phil know that their life is kind of like a tv show for us. (It’s literally like fiction how is it even real) It’s our escape from reality. They can’t get rid of the best parts. And I appreciate that so much for the fact that they just acknowledge that and don’t step onto that pedestal of “fame and fortune” Because Dan said it himself, “we’re real people!” “We continued our lives!”
So… I guess you could say that I’m most excited for the fact that they’re still keeping us with them into this journey of the new place, and I’m excited to see what comes out of it.
