i really wish i could ship them

hey guys! let’s talk for a while. 

so there’s been a lot of stuff coming up in fandom. a lot of it has been a little…worrying. 

i know that a lot of fandom - especially in ficdom - are young, inspiring writers. even if you aren’t a young, inspiring writer, and are in fact a lovely 40-year-old with a penchant for knitting and writing in your free time, there are some things that everyone should know, especially concerning how people should write their fic. 

now if you’re posting on ao3, good! that’s the platform i’ll be talking about (mostly because i use it myself) but if you’re posting anywhere else, this applies to you still. 

now, bts fandom has been posting a lot of fic recently that are rated 18+ for numerous reasons, some of them because they contain sexual content - others because they talk about sensitive topics. from this point on, please be aware of trigger warnings such as: rape, abuse, manipulation, etc. 

now, here’s the problem. if you’re gonna write a fic about, say for example, domestic abuse, heres what you got to do: your homework. go out and research. go and ask someone - if you have to - about their experiences only after you’ve asked them explicitly if they’re ok with talking to you about it, if they’re okay with the limits of your questioning, if they’re okay with you writing about it, etc. you have to ask this. same goes for any other traumatic experience. if you’re going to write it, research it. don’t just do it through the internet, because everyone’s experiences are different. do it through people. it will be painful, hard, and you will feel numerous things that might make you question why you’re writing this in the first place, but if you’re really serious about something then show that you are. treat the subject with respect. 

so many fics now in the archive are flippant, using abuse or noncon as a plot device, or even worse, make it seem almost sensual. it’s not. it’s not fun, it’s not good, do not make it that way. for fuck’s sake, have some decency. this is not your little kink world, you cannot get away with doing stuff like that without doing your research first. 

fics that contain controversial subjects (like male pregnancy, which if written with a cismale character is inherently transphobic, don’t fight me on this) should be written with care. either spend substantial amount of time researching them or don’t write them at all. there will be people who will be triggered by this kind of material and you cannot do anything about it, but as an author, what you can do is try to be as respectful and as polite as possible when you try to tell your story. this is not a smut-filled world for you. if you want to write about real-life things, then you better sit down and realize what real-world consequences are. trying to make traumatic and controversial subjects romantic for the sole purpose of ~otp~ is not okay. it’s not.

writing, for most people, is not just a fulfillment; it’s catharsis, it’s a lifeline, a hobby, a form of expression, a movement. when you post something online, it’s public, it’s real. it’s out there for other people to see. you give your permission for others to connect with it the way you feel you’ve connected with it. (that is, not to say, that they’re allowed to steal it.) people are allowed to get upset and disgusted at your work. they’re allowed to like it, too. but realize that it’s your job to try and be as sensitive as possible, because if you’re going to write about something that you yourself have not gone through, then you need to realize that you have no precedence to stand on a soapbox when your fic is being criticized and defend your own words. you don’t. you have no idea what you’re talking about; how can you defend it? 

secondly; sex. listen, it’s totally okay to be as sexually free or conservative as you want; it’s your body, your life, your words. do as you want. but when we’re talking about sex, take a moment to educate yourself on what a healthy sexual relationship is. where do we cross the line between abuse and bdsm? what is the difference between a dom/sub relationship and a relationship with a harmful imbalance of power? most people don’t seem to understand this difference. it’s okay; a lot of people don’t because of the world’s lack of good sexual education (HONESTLY) but it’s your job to make yourself educated. if you haven’t had sex, that’s fine! if you have, that’s fine! my advice: still look it up. we don’t know everything. there’s always something to learn. fandom/ficdom has long migrated away with vanilla sex, which totally okay, but kinks can only be negotiated if you know what your healthy baseline is. learn it. learn it and understand it and know everything before you attempt to write it. 

these were the two things i really wanted to say. i’ve noticed a lot of fics have been having these problems; i know i’ve really condensed things and i could say a lot more. this is my own personal opinion, even though it really is good to try and learn more about things before writing about them (form your own opinion, you know?) i just wish to see a better change in fic; after all, words is how most of us live. 

[GOT7 Reacts] To their idol girlfriend being shipped with another member

request by a fab anon: Can you do a request where you are an girl idol and your relationship with one member is a secret to the public, but the fans ship you with another member. Sorry if that’s confusing :)

a/n: Sorrrrrryyyyyyy for the hiatus. I moved into a new apartment and shit went down with my boyfriend and it was a lot to handle. But sorry this took so long my love ~~~ JJ


Mark: The public saw you and Jackson together on a variety show and the familiarity between had fans shipping you and Jackson hard. It would make Mark jealous in a low-key way. He wouldn’t want to reveal your relationship because he’s said many times he won’t do that until he’s married but he would make sure in your private life to show you more affection than usual and probably make sure the two of you hang out alone together more than hanging out with all the members together especially trying to avoid situations where you’re left alone with Jackson even though he knows there’s nothing between you. “Hey, you still love me, right?”

Originally posted by j-miki

Jackson: Jaebum called you to do a duet on an Immortal song 2 with him since you were the only female vocalist he knew. Fans noticed your amazing chemistry which was really just your friendship but it didn’t stop them from creating cute ship names and hashtags about you. Jackson would be the most likely of the boys to announce his relationship with you. He would purposefully take you somewhere kind of busy and hold your hand or put his arm around you for photographers to see you are his. “Yeah she’s MY girlfriend look at her everyone”

Originally posted by jypnior

Jaebum: When you were cast as Jinyoung’s love interest in a new drama it was a bit awkward considering your relationship with JB but you and Jinyoung tried to keep it pretty professional. Fans immediately fell in love with your characters and extended that love to you and Jinyoung as a couple. Jaebum would be pretty annoyed with the whole situation. He would feel upset because he doesn’t want to reveal your relationship and risk losing everything but can’t stand seeing you being paired along with Jinyoung either. He would try to not let you see it’s bothering since none of this is really your fault “ Yah ______, it’s so funny I can’t believe they think you would date him” 

Originally posted by magiccastles

Jinyoung: The paparazzi caught snaps of you and Youngjae walking your dogs together which sparked a scandal right away. Your agencies denied the rumours right away but fans kept shipping you anyways. To hide his jealousy Jinyoung would probably lecture you to make it seem he is watching for your best interest when really he seriously hates the idea of you being with anyone other than him. All the media attention towards you and Youngjae makes him a little self-conscious of the relationship though he tries to not let it show. “What were you two doing alone together anyways? ______-ah you’re both idols you know better.” 

Originally posted by soulmatesjjp

Youngjae: You and Bambam were spotted shopping together downtown and fans were quick to notice your similar outfit mistaking them for couple clothes. The shipping immediately begins online and Youngjae was really sad about it. He wished he could shop like that with you in public but he didn’t want to ruin the privacy of your relationship. He would mostly be upset with Bambam taking you out somewhere knowing well that something like this would be bound to happen. He would likely get all cute with you every time you’re alone “I don’t know why he always wants to go places with you alone _____-ah. I know he’s just your friend but it makes me jealous.”

Originally posted by jypnior

Bambam: Your friendship with Bambam and Yugyeom was pretty well known in the idol world. However, fans for some reason always thought it was you and Yugyeom who should end up together since you were always bickering. Bambam would try to drop sly hints about your relationship. Like every time you were on a program with them he would put a friendly arm around you or joke around with you a lot so that more fans ship you and him together. If dating rumours start about you and Bambam he would most likely Instagram a couple photo just with the caption “Yaaassss”

Originally posted by jypnior

Yugyeom: You and Mark were temporarily hosting After School Club together and fans quickly fell in love for your charm and visuals together making names like “visual couple” or “English couple”. Yugyeom would be the most jealous. He really wouldn’t like it and would be conflicted about whether to reveal your relationship. In private he would be half-annoyed with you but also trying to impress you with flowers and things to remind you that you are his. “Baby, sorry I’ve been so uptight. I’m just really crazy about you. And maybe it’s time everyone knew.”

which is your favourite mother daughter relationship on PLL?

To be honest, while I looove Mama Hastings, my favorite mother-daughter relationship would have to be Pam & Emily. Their relationship REALLY glowed up from when we first met them. Pam really came a long way! When we met her, she was: 

  • not accepting of the fact that Emily was gay
  • crying in pantries bc of Emaya playing footsie under the table 
  • snitching on Maya to her parents and getting her sent to camp in the middle of the school year

She was really creating obstacles and electric fences for her only child, pretty making life at home unbearable when she told Emily she felt “sick to her stomach” about her coming out.

Now, she has grown into a mother who loves Emily with all of her heart, ships Emison, and just wants the best for Emily at all times. Even with Wayne gone (which is still some BS) and Emily faking graduation pictures, she still shows her loving support for Emily through everything and just lives to see her happy.

I honestly wish I could see more of them! Also, Pam really looks/acts like she’s Emily’s mother lmao the casting of Pam and Wayne as Emily’s parents is wildly on point!

Heyy everyone!

I’ve been on tumblr for a few months, but this is my first post ever. I don’t know if someone will read it, but here we go. Before I start I have to let you know English is not my first language, so you probably see a few gramatical mistakes 🙈🙈🙈. I watched Outlander for the first time last year (October) and I fell in love with the show (my mom watches it too and she loves it). When I finished s2 I started watching SC interviews and fanmades and before I could realized I was already shipping them. In the short time I’ve been in the fandom I got through a lot of feelings. I’m also on Twitter and Instagram, so I read everything and all I can say is that I’m really tired of all the fuckery; MM, T, WS, etc. But even if I tried I can’t stop shipping. So here I am now…wish me luck 😂.

hey friends!  heres my society6   
it would really mean a lot to me if y’all bought a print of my work. I know they’re pricy, and if you cant afford one I completely understand because I have exactly 15$ in my bank account right now :’’S 
i wish that I could make them cheaper, but society6 does all of the shipping and print production and so I only get a small cut of the final product and don’t get to decide the price :’”^) 
thanks again,  all of you are angels!!

You know I really wish Hinata did try and protect Naruto from the start. I really wish she did stand up to his bullies and sit next to him by the swing. I really wish Sakura didn’t fangirl over Sasuke but felt sad for him and his history and would leave little notes saying if he ever wanted to come by for dinner at her house he should come. I really wish Sakura would have just sat quietly next to Sasuke at the lake and just let the silence say what her presence already did. I really wish Naruto started to expect to see Hinata waiting there by the swings, shy and blushing, I wish she’d tell him how even though she has to fight her family to see him, that he’s worth it. I really wish Sakura would have gently reminded Sasuke that as long as she was around he could have a friend and she would never expect a thing in return. I really wish.

But the truth is, that’s not what happened. The truth is that Sasuke and Naruto bonded through their shared loneliness and feelings of fear and inadequacy.

The truth is, Hinata and Sakura were not bestfriends to Sasuke and Naruto in their hardest days.

And that why I can’t ship them.

It makes me so angry that people feel like they have to insult other ships to make themselves feel better about theirs. I’m a sanami shipper but seeing other ships get attacked feels just as bad. Do you know how horrible this person probably felt? Lunami fans, I hope the rest of you are nicer!! This isn’t right. I wish we could all just stop and acknowledge other ships. We don’t have to ship other ships. We don’t even have to like them. We just need to acknowledge that all kinds of ships exist and move on. Not just your ship exists and if you think that’s how it is, you have to leave your little bubble world and start living in everyone else’s, aka the real world. I’m not saying lunami fans are bad. Not at all, actually. Most of you are really sweet and respectful! But just as any other fandom and ship, you have toxic fans. We just need to teach them fandom and shipping manners. Please be respectful when discussing ships! Or, just don’t say anything at all if it’s not a nice thing.

I really hate what the Black Sun vs. Bumbleby thing is doing to my personal enjoyment of the show. I catch myself thinking “damn, why did Sun have to follow Blake, that could mean Black Sun is going to happen” and Sun just doesn’t deserve this. No matter which ship will become canon, the friendship between Blake and Sun is beautiful and doesn’t deserve this. 

I just wish I didn’t care and I feel like many people would have different opinions on many things regarding those characters if we didn’t have two possible options while only one of them can happen. Maybe people would like Sun more if Black Sun was off the table. Maybe people would have different opinions on other things if Bumbleby was. 

And sure as hell people in the FNDM would get along better. 

It’s not meant to be critique, just an observation. 

anonymous asked:

i really wish riverdale leaves out any love triangle. every show does it and i personally love it when a show has one epic pairing that works through everything. like naley or summer/ seth. i feel like bughead could be that. hope the writers don't screw them over. like yes they need to work out issues but i hope they don't rip them apart

i would love for betty and jughead to be the staple couple that stays together through the course of the show and faces their obstacles together. there aren’t enough ships like that on television and i think bughead has the potential to be one of those couples. frankly, i find those types of relationships so much more interesting than constant break ups, partner swapping, and love triangles. it’s also much more creative. a love triangle is a cheap, easy ploy for drama on a show. i’m hoping that any love triangles will be settled this season and then moving forward, the creative team focuses on building those romantic relationships up and developing friendships further 

Okay Aqours officialy announced trio/duo songs and I have been thinking about this for a few hours.
Just gonna drop some of my wishes here:

You & Mari:
Loved their scene in episode 11 and I think they could sing a really funny song together but they could also make a more serious song (fitting for episode 11). Also, I low-key ship them

Chika, Kanan & You:
They are childhood friends so a song with them singing together would be really sweet? Maybe a slow nostalgic song?

Yohane & Mari:
Probably a pair many people are hoping for. Pretty sure their song would be a little bit crazy but god just imagine both of them singing a duet together.

Dia & Ruby:
Okay μ’s already covered many types of love but I think a song covering two sisters would be really sweet? Like, family love is a type of love as well.

Kanan & Mari:
I doubt that you need an explanation for this pair haha… Garasu no Hanazono No. 2

Riko, Kanan & Dia:
Don’t really know… probably because their aesthetic. I think they could make something really elegant/traditional?

Hanamaru & Ruby:
Best friends song. We never got our RinPana duet so at least give me my HanaRuby song.

Yohane & Ruby:
Fallen Angel with her little demon :’) (ft. Dia screaming in the background & Mari’s “Pretty bomber head!” )

Hanamaru & Yohane:
Did you realise by now that I just want another first year song
I think their voices would mix well with each other though I’m not sure what kind of song they would sing together?

TL;DR: I would be fine with any duo/trio. Also I hope they will come with solo songs as well.

I really hope that Nalu will be canon by the end of Fairy Tail. This ship is so frustrating, like, I always have the feeling that there is something between them, something MORE, but then I think about it and it seems to me that this is too soon for a love confession… but still, I can feel the love.
WHY ARE THEY SO COMPLICATED OMG I just wish they could be together

anonymous asked:

Hmmm.. what do you think about the monoma x shinsou ship??

It’s… possibly a good ship? I guess? I’ve seen it around a bit, but ngl I don’t really understand it haha

Anon said:  when’s your birthday?

November 13th! It’s still pretty far~

Anon said: you say you like seeing the bakusquad taking care of babies hmmm? draw them maybe? OuO

I did haha

Anon said: Because of your art (you made me fall in love with Bakugou and Kirishima and Kaminari) I started BNHA and got my best friend into it. Now I can’t stop writing them and my friend and I have several AUs already.

This is the best kind of ask omfg !!!!! Glad I could get you into my disaster trio!!! …but also are you maybe gonna share like I’m starved for bakushimanari content a n o n

Anon said: Aw man i was gonna recomend that fic by newamsterdam to you. Like i finished reading it and thought you could like it since you like that other kuroo x teru fic (thanks to you and the anon for that btw) and it seemed your style? Im kinda sad i missed the chance (ok i know this whole ask sounds stupid)

Awwww don’t be sad anon, reccing me bakushima stuff is seriously hard because I might or might not go daily in the ao3 tag to read anything complete that’s been updated and I might or might not be following all fics regularly updating unless they have a character death/angst with no happy ending warning oops - thank you for thinking about me tho!!! That made me happy haha

A Serious Note

With season two confirmed, I am sincerely hoping that the writers take the possibility of a Clay/Tony relationship into consideration. It would actually mean so much to me as a bi person to have Clay, a character on a mainstream show, be canonically bi. It’s not about a fantasy or about fetishizing queer love, for me it’s a true desire to see representation. The producers and cast have been so adamant about making 13rw a show that doesn’t shy away from topics that are controversial and need to be talked about. There are a lot of shows where characters are shipped constantly by fans but logistically it wouldn’t work or make sense for the plot. But 13rw has established a perfect setup for Clay to come to terms with his sexuality as Tony helps him move on from Hannah. This show could really be a pioneer for bi visibility and I hope they realize the oppurtunity they have to make a change and an impact. I just worry that the fear of backlash from girls who have a fixed idea of who Clay is will prevent the writers/producers from taking the chance. I wish there were a way to contact them and propose the idea and somehow convey its importance.

anonymous asked:

Yurio!!!!!

THIS BOY. If he wasn’t 15, I’d be all over him. Fave character in the entire series  ( ˘ ³˘)♥

general opinion: fall in a hole and die | don’t like them | eh | they’re fine I guess | like them! | love them | actual love of my life 


hotness level: get away from me | meh | neutral | theoretically hot but not my type | pretty hot | gorgeous! | 10/10 would bang (in 5 years)


hogwarts house: gryffindor | slytherin | ravenclaw | hufflepuff


best quality: He loves what he does, knows that he’s good at what he does, and will do anything he can to be the best at what he does. It’s amazing watching the amount of work he puts into skating in order to stand toe to toe with those he admires and doesn’t let shortcomings drag him down. And he’s only 15. 


worst quality: 
He can be really brash, aggressive, and doesn’t know how to communicate his true feelings without sneering at someone. You don’t have to look further than how he treats Yuri for proof of that. Yurio sure has a funny way of telling someone “You’re the biggest rival I have, DON’T QUIT MOFO”

misc. thoughts: The older I get, the harder it is for me to fall in love with characters who are confirmed to be under 18. On one side I’m like “Yurio looks really good in tight clothes”, but the other side of me is screaming “HE’S 15. YOU’RE IN YOUR EARLY 20′S. HE’S FICTIONAL, BUT IT’S STILL AWKWARD TO THINK ABOUT.”

What Actually Bothered Me

Okay so I must admit that during the actual finale I was absolutely livid. I was completely pissed off at the writers and at Julie and at the whole episode in general. All I wanted was for Steroline to be happy, and I didn’t get it so I bitched about it for a while. But then I watched a movie with my dad, distracted myself for a while, and I understand my anger more now.

Stefan dying didn’t bother me as much as it did others. Yes I’m pissed off and I would have loved to see Steroline live happily ever after. But it was always Stefan’s story, and a part of me quite likes that the series ended with the conclusion to his tale.

Besides, Caroline never would have fit as a human, as Candice said “it took her dying to make her truly alive,” and we all know that Caroline was made to be a vampire. So even if Steroline would have ended up happy, it wouldn’t truly feel done to me because without a flash forward I would always wonder how Stefan died.

But there were four things that drove me up the fucking wall:

1) Stefan sacrificing himself for Damon again for some twisted guilt that he still holds after making his brother turn. News flash Damon is a terrible person, and Stefan Salvatore deserved so much more than a death like that.

2) There was no mourning. I wish they would have ended the last episode right before Damon set on fire, so that this episode could have a better mourning period for Stefan. I mean Elena got a whole episode, and Stefan Salvatore deserves much more than five minutes.

3) The Klaroline letter. Okay here’s the thing about Klaroline, for me at least. I understand the shipping because I agree that their personalities work. In fact, I have read many fanfictions starring the pair and many of them were incredible. I don’t really ship them in canon, due to past incidents, but even really aggressive shippers can admit that it was too soon. Stefan died two minutes before, and Steroline got married one episode ago. But suddenly it’s a Klaus letter, a “story for another time,” and a possible spin off? The KCers deserve more than a slot of fanservice, and SCers sure as hell deserve more than that.

4) It was always about Damon, right up until the end. Sure we see Stefan meet up with Lexi, and then we see him finding relative peace. But if it truly was “Stefan’s story” then it should have been Damon making the sacrifice. I would have preferred having the compulsion work, and a heartbreaking scene of Stefan crying in front of the fire once Damon was gone. One because it creates more of an impact, two because it allows Damon to finally take the fall, and three because this series was always about Stefan. Not about Damon finding piece, or Elena waking up, or any of the romances that followed. It was about Stefan, and he deserved so much more.

We all deserved more, the characters, the actors, and the fans especially. It’s been a great 8 years, and even if there were some bad times (including a lot of this episode) there were amazing times too. Here is a small piece of my ranting, feel free to rant right back to me. We will make it through this, just as we have in the past.

Love you all, to the moon and back.
