Hey, Fran! Have u ever consider headcanon abt Baku and Kiri met before they entered Yuuei? I mean, just think about it: Baku is a huge bully while Kiri stand up for them who get bullied. Like?? What if they got into fight?? How would they react when they meet again in Yuuei?? WHAT IF KIRI HATED HIM BEFORE

Aw anon, I’m so not gonna give you the answer you hoped you’d get to this haha I’ve talked briefly about something on these lines on my main blog not too long ago, but in general the way I feel about this is, there’s no way Kirishima could ever hate Bakugou. I’m positive their relationship would have been a friendship whatever moment in time they were to meet, tbh!

And this is in part about how Kirishima just doesn’t seem to know how to hate, like, anything so why would he hate Bakugou of all people, but it’s also about how I don’t feel like Bakugou changed all that much between middle school and the first day of high school? Kirishima didn’t meet a perfect version of Bakugou, he met a Bakugou that lauched himself at Deku and had to be restrained by Aizawa, a Bakugou that blew up half a building to beat Deku, a Bakugou that was more yelling and explosions than anything else - and Kirishima looked at him and saw him anyway, you know? He looked at Bakugou fighting against Deku and thought “he looks desperate”. He looked at Bakugou and didn’t stop at his yelling and violence, not even in the very beginning. This would have happened before their UA days too, in my opinion - Kirishima and Bakugou, they have personalities made to fit together. You don’t need to chip anything away for them to like each other, they see worth in each other, they understand each other. When they first became friends Bakugou wasn’t any less shouty and angry and Kirishima wasn’t any less righteous and earnest than how they were back in middle school, all in all!

Well, what you were talking about was a one-time meeting anyway, right? Considering Bakugou’s always been cocky and shouty but has never engaged in uncalled-for fights, and how all his bully-like behaviours have always been restricted only to interacting with Deku, I doubt he would have actually fought Kirishima. At best he could have told him to mind his own business before angrily stomping away, tbh. A meeting like that would have hardly left an impression on either of them, let’s be real haha

I'm pretty sure most "anti-anti" discourse will ultimately just be used as a tool to deflect any and all criticism, or to accuse critics of being terrible people themselves. Especially with you all patting yourselves on the back about how morally superior you are.

deflect criticism of what? fanworks?

Hm. I can see how it might be easy to conclude that, depending on your previous fandom experiences, but I have to disagree on the whole.

To be perfectly honest, my gut reaction to this ask was ‘this sounds like projection’ because this ask is a list of things anti-shippers do.  Anti-shippers regularly deflect any and all criticism of their behavior and harassing tactics by exercising logical debate fallacies, accuse critics of being terrible people by accusing them of supporting or participating in rape/pedophilia/incest/abuse irl, and pat each other on the back for how morally superior they are to those nasty [insert nasty name-of-the-week for bad shippers here].  And maybe you’re referring to ‘anti-antis’ who go after antis with the same intimidation and harassment tactics that anti-shippers use, purposely retaliating with similar behavior.  (I don’t condone that shit, or people who send nasty anons to antis (suicide bait tw), or anything else that involves abusing another person.)

What is ‘anti-anti discourse’ in this instance? I’m going to guess you mean ‘telling people it’s okay to ship what they like, write what they like, and do fandom how they like, even if others find their ships and fanworks to be uncomfortable’.  In other words, advocating for fandom to stop weighing content on its moral value or kid-friendliness.

If you come from the school of thought that fandom must be made across-the-board ‘safe’* by no longer allowing fans to create or share headcanons, theories, or fanworks that contain amoral, dark, or nsfw content, I can see why the ‘ship what you like/your kink is not my kink and that’s okay/just tag your shit and do whatever’ attitude towards fandom feels like it’s setting up for all criticism to be ignored.  If your frame of reference for fandom is evaluating everything on how safe and moral it is, saying ‘actually, everything is permissible in fiction’ means there’s nothing you can possibly criticize. 

But fandom didn’t wait for morality and social justice to become the centerpiece to criticize fanworks and fan spaces; we used the original canon and liberal values as our ammunition instead of purity points.  We wrote long meta about why slashfic was bad, then about why slashfic was good, then about why mlm fic was so much more popular and common than wlw fic, then about how to write mlm fic in realistic/respectful ways. We’ve debated repeatedly on what’s appropriate to write about and what isn’t, and if we need to cross decency lines, how do we protect people who don’t want to see it?  We’ve had massive ship wars over which ship was more canon (instead of which ship was more moral, and thus most deserves to be canon).  Nor did we wait for current minors to complain about adults to figure out ways to make fandom spaces safer for people to navigate. We created tagging systems to help people avoid content that disgusted or harmed them.  We then criticized each other’s tag usage and demanded more and more specific tags to help us weed out fics that would squick us (or find fics that hit the right kinks).  We created 18+ only spaces on our geocities websites and mailing lists, and locked 18+ content on our Livejournals so that underage people who wanted to get access had to lie about their ages, knowing that what they were about to encounter was not intended for them.  (figuring out how to make this work on web 2.0, designed to bring us all the content no matter what, has been very difficult.)

But mainly, we just assumed everybody was on the same page about real world morals: incest irl was bad, dating a minor irl if you were an adult was bad, abuse of any kind irl was bad. We might debate about how to respect the online spaces of others, but we didn’t doubt that everyone knew these things were shitty.**

You’ll notice some of these debate points aren’t that different from what antis and shippers ‘debate’ today. But when we debated these things without assuming that the morals of people with opposing views were fundamentally fucked up, it allowed a much more open, nuanced dialogue because people weren’t on their guard, waiting to be personally attacked. When we stopped treating ships and kinks as personal preferences but rather as personal value statements, we lost the ability to have nuanced conversations about the underlying reasons these ship types and kink types were so prevalent.

I can never reply without writing a novel, can I? But my point is this: ‘Anti-anti discourse’ doesn’t stop people from critiquing fanworks, or figuring out ways to make fandom safer for both teens and adults, or talking about the potential harm that dark content can cause. By asserting that deeply personal things like what kind of romantic dynamic pings you or what sexual kinks you have are personal, and you are free to indulge that (and others are free to avoid/ignore it), it actually makes fandom criticism less loaded, more nuanced, and more enriching, letting everyone think for themselves instead of being scared into silence.

PS - I’m so curious why you say anti-antis are ‘patting each other on the back for moral superiority’. Do you think I feel morally superior because I don’t direct personal attacks at anti-shippers? Is ‘patting each other on the back’ the act of reblogging from others because you agree with them? Or is it something else?

Cause I’ll tell you what: I don’t really care about the moral superiority of anybody.   All I care about is people taking the time to be just and kind to one another. And I’m trying to do that myself (though who knows how much I succeed).

*’safe’ in scare quotes here because I so entirely disagree with the concept of a heavily censored space being ‘safe’ that I have to point out this is really, really not safe by using scare quotes.

**And maybe that assumption was a bit of a blind spot - a generation gap between fans who grew up without the internet and fans who grew up with it.

I think its so important to remember just how different 616stevetony is (and all the subsequent comic universes) from MCUstevetony. I just saw the spoilers for an upcoming comic panel when AI!Tony calls Steve his best friend, and someone in the replies was like “well what about Rhodey.” And of this was the MCU, that comment would be totally justified. In the films, Rhodey is without a doubt Tony’s best friend, there’s not even any competition. Like, yes, he has Pepper and Bruce, and even Nat and Steve, but none of them are Rhodey because for MCUtony NO ONE can compare to Rhodey. There each others rocks, brothers in all things except blood. Just like in MCU canon, that’s what Bucky is to Steve.

But in the comics??? Tony undoubtedly loves Rhodey, and Steve loves Bucky, but no one in the comics has been through as much together as Steve and Tony have. In the comics, THEY are each others rocks. Not Bucky or Rhodey. They’re best friends, no questions asked. Even when they fight, even when they’re angry with each other, even when they’re leaving each other ridiculously bloody, they love and respect each other (never said their relationship is healthy, notice how I’m not claiming that.) So yeah, comic!Stevetony and MCU!stevetony are different, and have different dynamics and if you want to keep your timelines straight (and not give yourself a MAJOR headache oh my god), they probably shouldn’t be confused for each other.

All I can ever think about is how badly I want to kiss you. // Well, at least you could tell me you’re glad to see me.

This is actually quite thrilling.
Good, I’m glad.

Rant; miss me with that ship hate

I am gonna tag every massive ship because everyone needs to hear me out about this. I’m not gonna call out any ships or people.

I love Voltron Legendary Defender, I really love it and all the characters are so precious and my ships make me so happy, you can’t imagine. But let me just say a goddamn thing, the fandom is pissing me the fuck off.

First of all, leave the goddamn VA’s alone? Stop harassing the voice actors about your ships; I’m not just looking at the shippers of my Notps. Nope, the shippers of my otps too. The VA’s have nothing to do with the story line so don’t drag them into this childish ‘war.’

Secondly, what the actual fuck is the point of sending hate? What is the point of stooping so low that you waste your precious time on sending hateful messages to anyone that doesn’t ship what you ship?
There are big ships in this fandom that I don’t ship and that’s not because something else is my otp. I just don’t think they have chemistry, or I see them as great platonic friends/etc… but sending hate to shippers of something you dislike does not stop them from shipping it. If anyone would send me hate about my otp they can just fuck off and go back to their lives, I’ll never stop shipping it even if something else becomes canon.

Okay before anyone that follows me calls me a hypocrite because I have reblogged things that look sort of ‘anti.’ I have reblogged things that made fun of shippers, and I’m not going to delete those posts. They are never legitimately mean, they just make fun of it, just like I have reblogged posts that make fun of shippers from my otp that show we see ‘canon!1!1!1’ in every single movement and I think those posts are funny.
Everyone needs to stop seeing this all so serious, it’s an animated series for god’s sake. So please just stop being so rude to everyone there’s no point.

Conclusion:

Tl;dr
1) stop dragging VA’s into your ship wars, they’re all lovely and deserve none of this
2) sending (anon)hate is childish and has no point. Just flag or ignore posts about your notp, unless you’re like me and like making fun of our pathetic fandom
3) Please just mind your own business and stop taking this all so serious. This is just an animated show. People shipping your notp won’t have any impact on your everyday life.

Finally; let’s all just enjoy the show and every character on its own, love our precious VA’s and stop behaving like children who are in need of attention thank you. If you need to reply to this or want to say/add anything else, talk to me personally or whatever go on anon I don’t care but hate will be ignored.

“You know, when you and I were together, every single atom in my body told me that it was the right thing. That we were the perfect fit. And that kind of love, it can change your whole life. And then when somebody who made you feel that way suddenly stops… the vacuum is just…

All I’ve heard you say is that you have no hope, and that this is your hell, so if it’s so bad then why don’t you just end it?

I THINK ALL ROYAI SHIPPERS SHOULD HAVE A GET TOGETHER THING.

Imagine that.

We would talk about our Royai feels and just go..

and more

and also

and

and just go

and

and

and

and 

then we’ll rewatch all the Royai moments and..

and

and more

and all kinds of..

DID I MENTION??

and we’ll probably write fanfiction together..

and read fanfiction together..

and just..

and

and we’re just always hit..

and when someone bashes Royai..

and

and in the end of the get together, we all just go..

and 

and

also

and

I SWEAR. THIS WOULD BE AWESOME.

Except we all live worlds apart. *sobbing*

I was thinking about this since yesterday. :)) It’s probably because I don’t have a lot of people I could spazz to about Royai except for people here on Tumblr. So i’m really really happy that there are people who feel the same way as I do. *sobs* I just ship Royai so hard that sometimes I don’t understand anymore what happened to my life. lkjsdkajsldkjas So thank you to everyone who has sent me messages etc. Very very much appreciated! :) <3

A Roadmap to Jane Rizzoli's face

A Guide for Maura Isles

Sequel of this post.

Legs

Long bones. Long, long bones. The second most interesting long bones Jane Rizzoli possesses (can you guess what other interestingly long bones she has?). Did I feel you shiver. Well, you should because dayum, if you could have those legs wrapped around your head            wait, what?

Although it’s not really in her character, it’s a shame that we don’t often see Jane wearing skirt ‘coz when she does… cf. picture above. BAM, legs pregnant. You want to lick those light milk chocolate tanned limbs from the bottom to the top.

I need a shower.

Butt

Tidy round your desk and chair, tidy tidy everywhere, tidy farts and whitey butts, I can see your underwear!,you quietly hum as you watch Jane The Rizzoli shake her thang to the silly melody. Maura Isles may have one of Boston’s finest derrière, but Jane Rizzoli is a close second, or a challengingly tied first place. I mean, you and I both have seen what those ass cheeks look like in a spandex, in a skirt, even in her slightly too large working pants.

I need another cold shower.

Waist

Let’s take a second to appreciate the badge and belt.

Abs

Haaa. The abs. ZE abs. The ones you would want to lick whipped cream on. The ones you’ve been dying to put your cheek against. The ones that nearly give you sudden death when Jane flashes them (extra bonus if badge on belt). The ones most likely Maura scrapes her nails against when… I need a cold shower.

(I need another cold shower.)

Boobs

Although Maura has the undeniable Rack of God, Jane has no reason to be ashamed of her own chest configuration. I mean, look at them.

Look at them.

Plus Maura doesn’t seem to mind.

Arms

Arm porn is still a thing. You may or may not be familiar with Lindsay Boxer (Jane’s AU twin or younger self). Please allow me.

Feeling hot and bothered yet?

Bonus: finger pointing.

Hands

Long bones.

I could press about her scars, how they are a reminder of how strong she is and a constant proof of her wild survival instincts. I could hypothesis on how much flailing they would be if Jane were to ever play piano. But I’ll just stick to the most important.

Long bones.

If you know what I mean.

Chin

That splint chin. I want to put my finger (or my tongue) on it. Is it just me, or?

Face and dimples

*dead*

*so so dead*

*dimples dying a million times*

Eyes

Widely refered to as “chocolate brown eyes” in any fanfiction. Das because chocolate is delish.

Eye-sex alert: please be considerate with your surroundings. Passive eye-sex can result in widespread pregnancies and WE CANNOT TAKE ANY MORE BABY FEELS RIGHT NOW BECAUSE ASDFGHJKL.

Hair


Such dark mane. So capillary kuddos. Wow stud hair.

Thank you for your attention. You may return to a normal activity.

Shipper out.
