I was curious, a lot of artists say don't repost their art. Does that mean you don't want people to reblog it? or are people downloading/screenshotting other artists stuff and not giving credit?
I wanted people to know the difference between reposting and reblogging that’s why I put the link in my faq about this difference [x] to avoid confusion :) This answer may also help with explanation how I see reposting with credit [x]
If artists didn’t want people to reblog their art they’d simply say “don’t reblog.” Artists want their art to be reblogged, get notes, be noticed, they don’t want other people to take it away from them. It’s the artist who spent hours on those pieces, who devoted a lot of time to learn how to hold a pen :) So I don’t think it’s that weird that the artist wants those notes.
Btw, you think anyone cares to check the artist? And look, there’s even credit…
If the artist don’t want their art to be reblogged there must be a reason, pay attention to what people say and everything will be clear :) Also, some artists don’t mind their art being reposted with creadit, so yeah, it’s always good to ask if you have doubts :)
Hi, hello, hi! You know what time of the year it is? It’s the time when we celebrate a relationship of fictional characters, because we are cool like that. Anyway, you know what to do, right?
on 22nd of April post your River/Doctor edits,
when I say edits, I mean: gifsets, graphics, metas, fics, fanart, fanmixes, videos - whatever tickles your fancy,
tag your edits with #river doctor appreciation day. You can also use other tags, for example: #river song edit (or #riversongedit because people use both of these tags), #rd edit, #drfic, #eleven x river, #twelve x river etc. Make sure to use #river doctor appreciation day tag as one of the first 5 tags, otherwise I won’t be able to see your post and reblog it,
other than that: have fun, enjoy yourself, cry a little and don’t bash other ships/characters,
if you want to, reblog this post to spread the word,
Context: There is a tumblr page that started to build up a list of recs for fics that do not contain certain tropes, and a list of authors that write those tropes so that people could avoid them.
I’m not on the list of authors to avoid, nor did I participate in the construction of that list, so I’m (mostly) leaving the discussion there to others.
But I was on the list of recommended authors, and I had a little verified check mark next to my blog name indicating that I was “safe” to follow because my blog did not talk about any of the tropes. And I have feelings about that, because…you know what? Nobody showed me the list of tropes to be avoided and asked me if I was safe.
I’m a big fan of letting people hate what they hate, and letting people love what they love, within the generalized confines of modern small-l liberalism. I absolutely support people in their desire to identify things they hate and avoid them, and I support people who love that thing loving it, and things tend to work best if lovers and haters get separate rooms. (The confines of small-l liberalism end when someone loves going into someone else’s room and messing with their shit. Don’t do that.) I support tags and blacklists and blocking liberally.
I am old and salty as fuck, so trust me I understand hatred. I also understand that life’s too damned short to waste trying to convince people to hate things they love or love things they hate.
But that’s why creating a list of “safe” authors without consulting those authors is not a great choice. You’re putting me in a room without asking me if I want to be in it.
If you want to put an author on a list as having a “safe” blog to follow for X thing, there is only one way to know if the author is safe for that thing, and that’s to look at the author’s words about that thing. I don’t think I’ve used words to express my opinion about any of the things on that list either way on this blog.
By putting me on a “safe” list without consulting me, you’re putting me in a position where if I ever reblog something, or squee about a fic I like, I’m going to be making someone who felt like they were in a safe space feel attacked. I don’t want to do that.
If you are harmed by seeing a thing, please use the ask box instead of assuming that I also don’t like the thing. Telling people I’m safe for X thing when you haven’t verified is a dick move both to the people you’re telling and to me.
TL;DR ASK PEOPLE INSTEAD OF ASSUMING THEY HATE THE SAME THINGS THAT YOU DO.
If I were to start a sort of art competition, would this be of interest to you guys?
It would be based in the Hunter x Hunter fandom, I haven’t decided if I want specifically KilluGon or anything in general, but there would be a money prize!
I would award the top three, based off of myself and maybe one or two other people’s votes, a money prize, with first place making somewhere between $200-$300. I might also do two categories, one for the most skill, and one for the most creative.
I haven’t decided if I actually want to do this yet or not, but to all artists out there, would this be of interest to you?
If it is, or if you want to spread the word, please give this a reblog so I can see how many people would actually find this interesting. Or if you see it and know any artists, please shoot this their way.
I’ve never done anything like this before, but I’ve always kind of wanted to?
Reblog if you post Voltron content and post absolutely no hate on your blog
I was thinking it would be nice to have a post circulating that people can use to find blogs that are safe and non toxic, and still enjoy quality Voltron content. Write in the tags what ships you create content for/reblog!
(EDIT: Also feel free to reblog if you post mostly one character or general Voltron content! We always could use some more non-ship related/team love!)
Also, I really recommend blocking and reporting blogs that are harassing other users, especially those that are attacking younger users. X-kit is your friend. Stay safe! ❤
Prompt (from Anon): Heey, so first of all I wanna say that I absolutely love the Accident, seriously it’s so amazing and cute, thank you for blessing us with that fic <3 aaand, since you’re up to anything riverdale rn, I thought I’d share this imagine idea I saw a few days ago “your OTP passionately making out, person A starts scratching down person B’s back, which drives them nuts, whining into the kiss that that’s not fair"idk what you think about this but omg I can see a lot of fluff and ahfksmzbka pretty please
A/N: first all of thank you so much I’m just happy people are enjoying my work :3 and of course this sounds like such a good fic so here we go! I know there’s a lot of build up to get there but I kinda wanna do a part two? Like/reblog if you want part 2!
Characters: Archie Andrews
Pairing: Archie x Reader (anon didn’t specify so I’m running with this)
Warnings: steamy make out session
(gif not mine)
Right after school, your classmate (whom you must add have had a crush on since sixth grade) Archie Andrews met you as you closed your locker. "Well if it isn’t the Riverdale football star himself,” you greeted him with a casual smile. “What brings you here?"
Hey y'all, there’s something I want to address. It’s happened several times now that someone has reblogged or replied to one of these posts just to say that the character isn’t x or doesn’t experience y.
I know it’s not really y'all following me that are doing this, but there’s really no need to derail a positivity post to try and “fact check” someone. I write a lot of these posts for you, based on what you ask for, and I don’t like seeing other people try to take that from you.
You can understand and sympathize with someone else’s issues without having them yourself, so saying things like “he doesn’t have abusive parents” is just unhelpful and pointless.
I don’t engage with these people because I want this blog to stay far away from any kind of discourse or arguing, but I do hide replies/reblogs and use the block button. I don’t want y'all to feel unsafe here, and if there’s anything I can do or change to make sure of that, you can always let me know.
Question. Why did ppl ship u w/ PJ? I never rlly did.
THE STORY OFCTPJ X ANIA
-On Rouge’s profile during the making of the episode lots of people were commenting that ‘oMfG CtPJ iS sOOOOOOOO hAWt!’.
-So during episode 3 I said it which started the ship and the assumption that I loved CTPJ which I just played along with (With my immature youtube self believing everyone understood the joke)
-Then people started drawing fanart and writing fanfictions and fans really liked the idea of the workaholic tsundere and the flirty yet caring caretaker. Honestly I liked the idea since it was my first proper ship on the internet
-To then show an appreciation of all the love to the ship, made a video called ‘CTPJ X Ania Comic Collection’ that became very popular to my surprise. I see this as my biggest mistake so far when it comes to youtube.
-The video was ‘proof’ that the ship was canon to lots of people thus hating on the ALREADY canon Toots X CTPJ or more specifically @tootytootssugarsins who owns the Toots OC and to whom I’ll say over and over again, I am so sorry for everything that I caused.
-There was also peer pressure at @blogthegreatrouge and myself to make this a canon ship. However it soon got worse when it was discovered that I had a significant other AKA a real life boyfriend.
-From that point on it was a total nightmare for me as I was getting constant hate messages on all platforms as to why I had a boyfriend when I was ‘dating’ CTPJ, I demanded by ‘fans’ to dump him and to date him instead, how I was ‘hurting him’ and that I was a liar.
-It got to the point where I snapped and told everyone I had had enough and hated the ship thus never wanting to see fanart or hear about it again. Every time someone did I blocked them (I’ve unblocked them ages ago so don’t be worried about that)
It has been a year since everything has happened. Not sure if I left anything out but these are the main details. I will be honest and say now I do look at fanart and read fanfictions since people still do put time into them and the idea is interesting nonetheless.
Any reblogs to continue this conversation (E.g Questions, Debating, Discussion) about the ship, Toots X CTPJ and what happened are very much welcomed
I’m not individually a fan of any singular group because I support them all.
Day6’s music is not my cup of tea but they work hard and I stan them anyway.
Same with Seventeen, they’re genre is not my type but for the life of me I love those boys with all my heart and soul and will continue to support them.
I love BTS’ and BigBang’s music. I love their music videos and choreography. But I also love Exo and Got7 and KNK and UNIQ and Monsta X and as much groups as you can think of.
Because I don’t really like love songs / cute concepts I rarely listen to girl groups but LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I LOVE EXID AND RED VELVET AND TWICE AND F(X) and all of the others.
Hani and CL are my fucking wives.
Don’t even get me started on NCT.
I would sell my fucking soul for that group to make sure they get enough sleep and eat until they feel they could burst.
Now what pisses me off are the fans of these groups. Not all fans are like this but there are the few who make the group and the entire fandom look bad. Those fans make it their business to say that the group they stan is better than everyone else. Those kinds of feelings are normal but there are other ways of expressing your love and excitement without bringing down other groups and their respective fandoms.
I’ve been seeing posts on my dash lately from EXO and BTS fans saying stuff like;
‘everybody else could fucking die, EXO are the real kings’
‘BTS made it to the AMA’s when will your fave ever’
and other things along the line.
Point blank - ITS FUCKING DISGUSTING AND YOU NEED TO STOP.
another thing I noticed and I’m not trying to single anybody out but groups such as EXO and BTS etc (those are just used as examples) that are popular seem to have the most problematic fans because everything becomes a competition for them.
This is why I stan NCT and they have become my bias group because it’s one of the few fandoms I can sink into without seeing fan wars left, right and centre.
Also in regards to BTS at the AMA’s - could you international ARMYS stop asking them to do an English album. Like the K in kpop stands for korean. When you started listening to kpop you knew you were listening to them sing in KOREAN because guess what? That’s the language they speak. RM learned English because he wanted to expand his opportunities and be able to communicate with fans that speak English. The other boys know little English and they continue to try to learn everyday because they want to be able to communicate with fans as well. They’re not learning English for you to make silly requests like that.
No kpop group is valid because they get western recognition. They’re valid because they work their fucking asses off, lose sleep, lose weight, cry, become sick and depressed all to reach their goal and that’s why they’re fucking valid.
Take Taeyong from NCT as an example. His dance coach told him he’d never make it because he didn’t have what it took. Taeyong chose to practice day and night and now he’s one of the best dancers in the group. He worked hard to gain his place. So did every single kpop artist out there. So please respect and love them and stop the hate and the fan wars because honestly if I were a kpop artist and saw those hurtful comments and shit on social media I would literally want to throw the whole fandom away.
Word count: 5,237. I don’t know how to control myself with words.
A/N: This was a silly idea that popped into my head. I hope you’ll like it! I noticed that one of my favorites people here on tumblr liked/reblogged my first fic so I’m going to tag you in this one @crazychick010 and also @jarnesbrnes just because. Sorry if you didn’t want to be tagged. Also a tag for @marvelfanfichq because I’m super thankful to be part of it. Also I’m so sorry if this is horrible.
Feedback is greatly appreciated!
Warnings: Idk, fluff, a little bit of angst maybe.
Sometimes it was hard for Bucky to tell the good days from the bad. There were still days when he felt guilty and horrible for everything he had done in his years as the Winter Soldier. Today was one of those days. Every look that came his way felt judging and he wanted nothing more than to hide away in his room under the safety of his duvet covers.
Unfortunately for him, Steve never let him wallow in self-pity and pain. So whenever Bucky was down, the Captain always took him out for a small road trip around New York. This time Sam had joined.
Bucky was sitting in the front passenger seat rubbing his temple in annoyance. Steve was currently having a heated discussion with Sam about his parallel parking skills. The bickering was getting on Bucky’s every single nerve and he was less than a second from snapping, preferably their necks.
Hello everyone! As you can see from the title of this post, it has been the one year anniversary of my kpop blog and I just wanted to say some thank-you’s and stuff. I know this is somewhat stupid, but my blog has changed massively through out the year and I think it’s quite amazing to see where it has been, compared to where it is now.
