Seven Minutes in Heaven

(I’m like rly excited btw!I’ve been wanting to write this for soooooo long I just kept forgetting)

Warning: Sexual Themes

Eddie watched as kids danced, some grinding on each other causing him to mentally and physically cringe.

He was only their as the designated driver.

He didn’t like parties, they were gross, full of germs and drunk kids.

Yet here he was, sitting on an old couch next to a drunk girl trying to flirt with an obviously uninterested guy.

“Hey Eds” Eddie heard from a familiar voice

“Hey Richie, glad to see you’re still sober”, said Eddie looking up at the taller boy.

“Well I’m not to glad to see you having no fun, wanna do something?”, said Richie with a frown.

“I’m perfectly content on this couch, thank you”, Replied Eddie

“Come On let’s have a little fun The Losers and a couple other kids are playing seven minuets in heaven downstairs!”, said Richie smiling.

“No thank you”, Replied Eddie, blushing madly.

“If you don’t you’ll be stuck with me annoying you on this couch for the next hour”, said Richie.

“Fine only because I get a break from you, but don’t expect me to do anything with whoever I get stuck with”, he replied

“Fine with me as long as you have fun”, said Riche, winking casing Eddie to blush more.

Eddie walked down into the cold basement to see a group of kids sitting in a circle

“Heyyyy!!!”, yelled a tipsy Bev when she saw Richie and Eddie.

“Hi”, Richie and Eddie said in union

“Hey Tyler write their names down and put it in the hats!”, yelled Bev to a boy with brown hair.

“Gotcha!”, he yelled back…

Little did Eddie know Tyler put his name in the wrong hat.

“Ok bring the hats!”, said Bev grabbing the hats from Tyler .

“Ok guys here’s the boys hat she said raising a blue hat and here’s the girls hat she said raising an orange hat. We pull one name from each hat and you’re stuck together in that closet for seven minutes! And NO going back whoever you get you’re stuck with!”, said Bev explaining the rules, everyone nodding in agreement.

“I’ll get two names now!”, said Bev reaching in the hats and swooshing around the paper.

“TYLER AND SANDY!”, Bev yelled pointing to Tyler and a tall girl with red hair.

Tyler grabbed Sandy’s hand and pulled her into the closet while smirking, Eddie cringed when he thought about what they’d be doing in there.

The seven minutes passed and Tyler cane out first his hair disheveled and Sandy came out next ,her lipstick smeared.

Richie whistled and Sandy blushed while Tyler laughed.

“Ok I’ll pick this time”, said Mike grabbing the hats

“Ok, Bill and Audra”, he said looking at a girl with straight black hair.

Bill gulped as she pulled home into the closet.

Eddie didn’t hear much only some laughing and talking from the closet.

They came out and Bill was blushing with a red lipstick imprint on his cheek and Audra was giggling at the obviously flustered boy.

“Aww that’s so cute!”, exclaimed Bev as she watched them walk back hand in hand.

“Ok next is…. Richie”, said Bev.

Eddie felt something in his stomach twist out of jealousy of whoever would be picked.

“And… EDDIE?!?!”, she said shocked.

Everyone stared at Riche and Eddie with shocked faces.

“Well there’s no going back come on spaghetti”, said Richie pulling Eddie of the floor and into the closet.

Eddie stared at Richie’s lanky figure in the dark, hoping he couldn’t see him blushing.

“Riche?”, asked Eddie

“Yea”, Riche Replied

“I’ve never kissed anyone”, said Eddie fidgeting with his shirt.

“Do you want to?”, asked Richie.

Eddie replied with a small nod.

And that was all Richie needed.

Riche leaned in and placed his lips gently on Eddies waiting for him to kiss back.

Eddie was a little shocked at first but shyly leaned into the kiss pressing his hard against Richie’s.

Richie stopped for a second and leaned back in pressing Eddies small frame against the wall, kissing his jaw.

Eddie gasped at the sudden movement but eased into it.

Riche kisses harder onto Eddies neck causing the smaller boy to gasp as he left pink marks on his neck.

Richie pinned Eddie to the wall causing Eddie to gasp and Richie to kiss Eddies neck harder leaving dark purple marks.

“I love You”, said Eddie in between heavy breathes

“I love you too”, Richie whispered against Eddies neck sending tingles down his spine.

Eddie placed his hands in Richie’s curls tugging at every mark he left.

Every tug he felt Richie moan or gasp against his neck.

He pushed Riche back causing him to lay on the floor and straddled his waist.

tugging his hair as he moved his lips onto Riches neck.

Richie gasped and moaned with every movement getting louder as time went on.

Eddie moved his hands towards Richie’s and pushed them onto the floor taking one hand off to tug Richie’s dark hair.

Eddie moved his lips onto Richie’s and Riche bit his lip causing him to gasp so Richie could sneak his tongue into Eddies mouth.

Riche then sat up and gently flipped over pinning Eddie to the floor as the smaller boy tugged at his hair.

He grazed his tongue over Eddies lip as Eddie pulled off and sucked on his neck leaving more marks.

Richie leaned down and pressed his body onto Eddies causing Eddie to moan as Richie nibbled on a part of his neck then….

the door swung open a group of people surrounding the entrance and they still didn’t notice them for about five seconds until Eddie looked out of the corner of his eye and gasped as he broke his grip on Richie’s hair.

Riche looked up from on top of Eddie and blushed a deep red as everyone sat there shocked.

“You were in here for twenty minutes, we thought something bad might’ve happened ”, said Mike still in shock.

Still in a comprising position Richie and Eddie quickly sat up and Eddie pulled up his jacket to cover the red marks littering his neck.

“I think it’s time for me and Riche to go”, said Eddie his voice cracking as Riche kissed his cheek.

“Mike can you drive them back”, said Eddie blushing as Richie leaned on him.

“Yea”, replied a sober Mike.

“Ok”, Replied Eddie in a high pitched voice as Riche snaked his arm around his waist pulling him up to his feet.

“Well um bye”, said Eddie walking away Richie’s hand still in his waist.

Everyone stared in shock as Riche and Eddie walked out the front door, Richie turning his head back at the last second to smirk and wink at the rest of them.

“Ok, so what the fuck just happened?!?!?”, said Bev half laughing.

“I don’t know, I just think we should spend the night at Bills tonight instead of Richie’s”, Replied Mike

“Agreed”, said Bill,Ben,and Stan in unison.

They didn’t see Richie and Eddie till the next day at the quarry Eddies Hair a mess, and purple marks littered his neck wearing Riches t-shirt and his short shorts.

Richie’s hair was tangled and sticking out but not covering the matching marks on his neck at all.

“Me and Eddie are dating”, said Richie.

“We figured”, replied everyone in unison.

Lego Batman

So before I say what I think about Lego Batman, I wanna be a sap for a moment and say that I, a stranger on the internet, made a simple post of saying I’m gonna watch this and it’s just heartwarming to see a bunch of people come up and like cheer me on and are excited for me to see it??? I mean?? You’re all more excited than I was lmao. You guys are the best for real.

ANYWAY, if I have to be honest, I rly initially thought it’d just be a lol movie with a ton of references and brilliant jokes but the plot actually holds up srsly damn. But now I get why that Alfred father’s day post got tagged “Lego Batman” so much cuz HOLY BATCOW HE’S LITERALLY GRAND BATDAD IN A 60s BATSUIT I AM WEEPING. PARENTAL LOCK. EVERYTHING.

ALSO!! DICK IS THE PUREST THING. I AM!! SO SO HAPPY!! My blossoming lil ray of sunshine! My innocent acrobatic darling! He’s excited about having 2 dads, and he also calls Alfred Grandpa!!!! aaaAAAAAA

There’s so much I wanna cry over like Batman and Joker’s….. ship. And Barbara’s badass-ness (I even had her sign a balloon on that father’s art lol). Also the robot? I forgot its name, is so cool being able to hang on and climb onto things like an actual bat.

Truly the best Batfam movie.

i think one of my fave things w/ the shape of water movie coming out is not just bc it’s a monster loving movie lol like true, that initially is what grabbed my attention

n i know that theres a high chance it’ll end sadly bc thats just how that stuff is, but i’m really,,,, really excited bc it’s finally a monster movie where it’s just, about a human and a monster finding a way to communicate and slowly falling in love in a happy and healthy way. i know we’ve just seen the trailer but, so far it seems like it’s moving awayyyy from the tropes that most of those movies follow thru

and honestly,,,,, the fact that the human lead uses sign language and thats a BIG part of how they communicate / and how she communicates w/ everyone, that just makes me rLY happy and im genuinely excited to see where this movie goes and what happens tbh

uh unpopular opinion..

i really hate people hating on Coco for being a “ripoff of Book of life” like


i rly just dont get why disney is allowed to spew out dozens of princess movies, but the second they also make a day of the dead movie, theyre not allowed? like can there only be one????? is that the rule?? i dont see why we cant have more than just book of life bc as a deprived latinx … im rly excited for coco like i could cry..

anonymous asked:

wasn't the gay friends thing him talking from a general emo person's perspective? obvs it's about him in reality but he intentionally didn't phrase it that way and idk people being like "haha dan outed himself yay :))))" makes me so uncomfortable like accidental outing is one of my biggest fears

it was definitely phrased in a general way, but layered with the kind of understood foundation that he was speaking from personal experience. it reminded me of the march 21 live show when he was like talking about not needing to label your sexuality and queer being a good umbrella term, framed as general statements, but the knowledge of which would be very weird for someone who wasn’t queer or wasn’t emo and going through this shit, in the case of today’s comments. like he would have no claim or authority over making those assertions without more rationale unless he was speaking from his own perspective/opinion/past experience. i totally understand the fear with accidental outing but i don’t think any of the comments dan makes about his own sexuality are in ANY WAY accidental. i think that he’s been trying very hard for over a year now to have people recognize and validate his same gender attraction without needing to make any overt statements or formal declarations of his sexuality. without needing to “come out” in a traditional sense basically. it seems v important to him to normalize the possibility of people not being straight without having to label themselves as such to the public. so i believe that’s why he makes statements like the ones he made today (though today’s were possibly more explicit than any of the ones he’s made before) bc as nice of a thought as it is to expect/want people not to assume youre hetero when you express so much attraction to men, the world is still pretty damn heteronormative. so dan occasionally feels the need to spell it out even more explicitly and it feels rly amazing and liberating and inspiring in a way to see him do that, to exist as he is and speak about wanting queer friends and whatnot, without giving in to the pressure to turn a statement like that into some kind of grand declaration or meditation on his identity.. so, in short, those statements felt really exciting and special and nice to me, nothing to be worried about. i don’t think dan would say anything about himself that he doesn’t feel comfortable knowing people are going to discuss to death for weeks.

Hey how's season 4 of Voltron??? Is it good

i sure think so! <3 i don’t think the mood or pacing is very consistent with the earlier season, but it works for it that se3 and se4 were split into separate seasons

i heard some people were disappointed bc not a whole lot actually happened, but i prefer this kind of pacing + inclusion of filler eps >B^)) there were a lot of rly rly sweet moments that made it fun to watch, i don’t think i’ve enjoyed a full season this much since se1

and i’m excited to see where the next season picks up! they left off on a rly interestng cliffhanger imo

anonymous asked:

what did you like about the new ducktales episode in particular? is gladstone everything you hoped for?

EVERYTHING uh aahaha wow um no really like, a lot of things- but particularly that they didn’t just make Gladstone into a jerk. You can get the feeling that he really does love his family, wants to be liked by them, and isn’t doing things to antagonise Donald on purpose per say- it’s just how his life and his luck works, and he doesn’t feel the need to apologise for that. I’m really excited to see where they go with him from now- and I know they played it for laughs but that little shot of him at the end, looking so small and isolated and contemplating whether he should go and look into the meaning of his life properly? I think even just that little acknowledgement of potential complexity was a really great touch.

(for a sec I thought that was Xiaolin Showdown and got really excited) (it's still good tho)

Ah man, Xiaolin Showdown is one of those cartoons I’d rly like to watch, I only saw a few episodes on tv long ago… I liked Omi and Jack!

I completely forgot there was a dragon! and it’s even green… I can see why it’d be confused for the show! I’m glad you still liked it though! [Here’s a little sketch for you]

Any thoughts/fave moments on the new gaming vid? :^) bless us with your words pls

ahhhh god they just seemed so happy and chill in this video didn’t they? i enjoyed it quite a lot. it was unexpectedly funny in places and pretty typics bants for them and i loved that phil voiced pretty lengthy opinions throughout it. i also thought dan went out of his way repeatedly to signal his awareness of the audience gaze, making this an interesting video in that it was simultaneously more calm and less “produced” or over-performed but also v self-aware (whereas normally when dnp get super in their heads about recognizing that everyone is watching them they become v persona-y and overdone.) i’ve divided up my thoughts for each of them and thought i’d go sort of question by question (they are bolded)!!! i think in general there aren’t too many profound conclusions to be drawn from this video–the thing about their being super aware that this is going to go out to their audience of millions is that they become more restrained in saying anything actually illuminating about their more serious thoughts/feelings. but that being said there were obvi a solid number of noteworthy moments


  • the boy was so assertive and even sassy in this. i was excited. lil comments throughout like, ‘I’m a bit concerned that you’re seeing it as a brown circle .. new video: getting dan’s eyes checked,’ or ‘life isn’t grand theft auto guys,’ or just the way in which he delivers the ‘let me tell you my answer’ during the monkey question .. he was just so forthright in voicing his thoughts and taking no shit and i was rly loving it the whole time, bless him
  • when introducing the vid dan talks about how the audience will judge them but phil quickly follows with a reassuring ‘we’re learning things about each other’ and i thought that was interesting like he wants to insert that note of authenticity to push back against dan’s comment. i mean i rly doubt they’re doing this game to learn a single damn thing they don’t already know about each other but phil with this comment is trying to make us feel more like we are watching them do something genuine on a chill afternoon at home, instead of something that they are literally performing for us. cool cool 
  • illegal firearm: good stuff. a lovely demonstration of phil’s ~lateral thinking~ and tendency towards constructing a fuller narrative for whatever info is presented to him. 
    • i liked that he kept asking for more information and questioning dan w details like “how do i know they’re illegal” “whose drawer” etc. and dan tries to move on and end the speculative questioning but phil literally says “wait” to keep talking about the methods he would use to evade being accused of any crime if the firearm was in his own drawer. 
    • also his voice is so northern here when he’s like ’then they’d know i didn’t touch it’ the way he says ‘touch’ yes good
  • the power to stop time: this one was mad interesting. 
    • first of all. they’re not sleeping. phil only slept 5 hours. we’ve written so many posts about their being tired and rushed in their content bc they were churning out so many vids in the time before they left for australia but damn, to hear phil confirm he only slept 5 hours is p cray. it’s no wonder they were soooo ‘chill’ in this. they’re tired. 
    • with respect to the actual question tho. i love phil asking ‘what is a pervy stuff’ and dan being so done w phils attempt at maintaining innocence. but then i also loved dan trying so hard not to smile when phil is grinning and clarifying that he doesnt mean that he doesnt know what a pervy stuff might entail but just that he needs to know ‘how pervy are we talking.’ lol dan is so amused and fond. then phil actually laughs so hard at dan saying ‘as long as u don’t leave a trace’ which is great bc phil’s unfiltered/genuine reactions to sex talk that aren’t trying to be revolted or unaware or uncomfortable are great
    • phil’s actual real time go-to thought for what he would do with this power is sneaking into a locker room and he says it with a glaring lack of gendered pronouns. noted. in conjunction with his interest in abs this is very fascinating information to me. 
    • and then dan is very insistent phil would do the pervy stuff even after phil states he’s going with disappearing from a convo. he signals it while phil is explaining his choice then even explicitly says ‘you tell the audience that.’
  • trapped in sewer: phil would lick a foot. dan needs us to know so he repeats it. ok sure fine
  • shitting when sitting: phil is a creative. the iron pants solution, king of innovative undergarments 
  • mike tyson fight: 
    • the synchronized ‘why would u let him win’ was cute. 
    • dan saying ‘punch me dad’ is so chill now. like. no one gives any fucks. and phil is at the point where he literally agrees and says ‘guess that’s why’ 
    • i’m constantly shook about character development it’s starting to be unhealthy
  • visiting space: ok the first and only thing this made me question is whether we have ever heard phil utter the word orgasm. have we? i actually don’t think we have and i was laughing at how much he evaded saying it in the way he talked about this question. g-rated phil may be long dead but he’s still keeping things as clean as he can, given the circumstances. dan did not try and insinuate that phil is just saying moonwalking for the audience. so dan is fine saying phil rly wants to perv if he had the power to stop time, but he draws the line at insinuating phil wants to orgasm in space. good to know dan has (completely arbitrary) boundaries. 
  • ah yes. the already iconic monkey question: several noteworthy lines.
    • p: i would spoon a monkey for sure. he didn’t miss a beat w that. confident statement of interest in animal intimacy from phil. splendid.
    • p: k-k-mar-kiss? i didn’t say kiss? d: that’s non-sexual it can be like a friendly kiss, a romantic one. interesting to me in that it confirms that dan draws distinctions between friendly (platonic), romantic, and sexual intimacy but that he also sort of equated platonic and romantic. on twitter he stated in a reply that he thinks friendly kissing is like a cheek kiss in greeting. its likely that romantic kissing is something more than that and more like the spooning and whatnot he suggested, but he lumps both of them into this category of a loving and intimate relationship. meanwhile sexual kissing is obvi ,, sexual kissing. but cool to hear a little bit about the way dan conceptualizes these categories
    • d: (about acting like a married couple) that could have a lot of drama and tears. you’d fight non-aggressively. i mostly think he’s using the common dumb jokes that society makes about marriage as being a loveless trap but also interesting that he went right to that dig and didn’t rly laugh about it or try to make it seem like a joke. he just said it and it’s sort of weirdly specific. ofc we can easily speculate that this might reveal some of dan’s thoughts about marriage or rly just his thoughts on a long term relationship bc it’s less about the institution of marriage. but i have doubts on whether that’s reasonable since, as i’ve been saying, dan is v aware he’s being watched and i doubt he’d take this as an opportunity to voice his thoughts about marriage and commitment and what is likely to happen when two people “act like a married couple” 
    • d: i mean you couldn’t have anyone else in your life if you have this loving relationship. ah i love this one. dan confirming that whether or not sex is in the equation, a loving and intimate relationship would mean there would be no space for another person in phil’s life is just. good. unlike the marriage comment i do think we can analyze this one a bit further bc it’s almost a throwaway comment–it’s not the punchline or centerpiece of what dan is saying making it more likely to be a reflection of how he really feels. and it’s not a common thought to be honest, that if you’re in an intimate/loving relationship you can’t have anyone else in your life, meaning it doesn’t seem like some common joke he’s just repeating. i take it to mean that dan sees romantic love as a true marker of closeness and connection with someone–a closeness that you can’t and don’t share with other people whom you do not romantically love. and that that intimacy doesn’t have anything to do w the sex that you may or may not be having with the person that you love. what a romantic fuck. honestly spoken like a man whose best friend and long term romantic love are one and the same. 
    • p: let me tell you my answer. i would spoon the monkey and watch some game of thrones and then go to bed in separate rooms. honestly, to me, this is the least interesting comment in this whole exchange. i know a lot of people think this sounds oddly reminiscent of dnp’s relationship or something but i genuinely think phil was in this scenario in his head. maybe he’s pulling from real life when thinking about the elements of being romantically intimate w someone that he could use for his example (aka spooning and game of thrones) but i think he’s rly thinking about the monkey and how not to spend too much time with it in this scenario, hence the sleeping in separate rooms addendum. idk. he’s talking about a relationship w a monkey yall i dont think he’s going to use that as a proxy to give us a thinly veiled clue about his day to day habits with his not-as-yet-confirmed boyfriend. mostly confused that a lot of people are treating it as “confirmation” that dnp don’t have sex lol


  • ‘this is really going to say a lot about our personalities and you’re going to judge us.’ he opens strong with that audience awareness. it carries throughout the video.
  • house is on fire: probably the most interesting of the dan questions.
    • dan looks so uncomfortable as soon as phil inserts himself into this scenario by saying that he (phil) would be “all the people.” the sigh is so real bc dan clearly did not want to treat this like a serious question but phil framing it as dan needing to choose between his own life and a kitten’s life and phil’s life suddenly really ups the seriousness of it. 
    • i feel for him. that’s honestly such a fucking difficult question to answer. i thought of the closest relationship in my life which is my sister and what i would do if she was like ha ha who would u save me or yourself and then having to actually think about both of those horrifying scenarios. either dan lives and has to live without phil or phil lives and has to live without dan and like jfc how r u supposed to pick or even try to take that seriously idk
    • i say all of this to add more context to dan’s answer and the sarcastic ‘bc the internet is watching,’ that he adds to it. i genuinely think dan was uncomfortable with this question and i also fully empathize with that so i think the sarcasm was added as a way to treat it more like a joke like ha ha i guess i’ll save u bc i’m a good person not ha ha i guess i’m picking this bc idk what to do since this question is horrific
    • ‘everyone is inherently good,’ says phil. ‘or at least that’s what i want to believe.’ i always think the thing w phil+optimism is a bit overhyped but like damn if he’s rly out there trying to believe this, then that’s p cool and very very lovely
  • everything turns into gold: there was def a dan rant about physics or monetary inflation or something that got cut out of this question bc he yells about it being stupid then there’s a v glaring jump cut then he’s saying ‘in a universe where this makes sense,,’ lol idk whether to be relieved or intrigued about the fact we didn’t get to hear it
  • phil dead and he’s been hanging w the twin: i loved the bit when phil asks dan to ask him a question only phil would know the answer to and dan responds, essentially, that there isn’t a question he could ask phil bc ‘you’ve been fernando the whole time.’ dan is wrong lol the question doesn’t say that the best friend has always been the twin–just that the best friend died at some point in the friendship and was replaced w a twin, unbeknownst to dan. i love that dan can’t even entertain the possibility that phil could be replaced with someone at some point in their friendship like nope too outlandish it’s obvi just saying phil has been a person w a different name all along .. in which case, as dan rightly points out, there’s hardly a dilemma. it’s just that you didn’t know your friend’s real name. what is the point of that. lol. a cute and probably unintentional way of avoiding any of the emotional weight of this scenario and i love it
  • dan as pres: dan thinks he’d be good in the role of president. he probs would be ok
  • spider: i am very fascinated by the way dan leans kinda forward and mostly into phil at 9:04 when he’s talking about being a spider and exploring someone’s body. why did he do that. what is he doing idk
  • become a god: 
    • making fun of lads and lad culture. i’m into it. i am always into them lowkey shitting on toxic masculinity. so funny. 
    • again phil tries to insert himself in the scenario by saying that if dan chose to incinerate earth he’d be incinerating phil, but dan was absolutely not having it 

overall they are cute and clever and good at knowing where to draw boundaries about the things they talk about but to do so in a gentle and natural way for the most part so this video was good and interesting but probs not revelatory but still very entertaining and funny and sort of soft in unexpected ways so i really liked it. i really like them xx 

(what would you do if…)

Steve Getting Braces Headcannons

so in honor of myself getting braces, I decided this would be the perfect time to write this!


- okay he was really nervous about it

- when he walked into the orthodontist office he was shaking sm this poor child

- when he got called back so they could start, he was rly on edge

- it looked nothing like what he had pictured in his mind

- he pictured this big, dark room with only one light that was shining on him

- he also thought that there would be a table of scary tools beside him

- but in reality that is not what it looked like

- it was a lot less terrifying

- when they sat him down and began the long process he was miserable

- he didn’t have the patience to sit there and be still

- he was rly bored

- he rly wanted to talk

- he rly wanted to leave

- steve thought his teeth were a lot more messed up than they actually were (A/N: for me that is the opposite. my teeth are a lot more messed up that I thought they were)

- there wasn’t that much wrong with his teeth

- he had a slight over bite and they were just really crooked

- when they started to explain whatever they were about to do, steve’s palms got rly sweaty

- this poor poor boy. he was so nervous

- when the orthodontist was done, he was constantly thanking jesus

- he stood up from the chair and that’s when the pain hit


- “yes, mr. randle. it is normal to have some pain.”

- “some pain? sOme PaIN??!”

- when he got back to the Curtis house, everyone wanted to see.

- but then steve got rly salty rly quick

- “I am in pain. don’t touch me, don’t talk to me, and just let me be.”

- and he put his hand in front of his face rly sassily.

- after a while the pain started to subside but he was still salty

A/N: fun fact: I based a lot of these hcs on myself. I was frickin nervous but frickin excited to get my braces. I just tweaked what my thoughts were and made it sound like steve. (the only thought I didn’t mess with was what he thought it would look like. that headcannon is 100% what I thought the office would look like as a younger kid. xD) hope you enjoyed! :)

anonymous asked:

Dan seemed quite calm and had that post vacation vibe about him today and it was exactly what I needed. Also, what did you think of his fandom rant/you tube rant/ I don't really care I just want to hear your opinions?

i thought it was an interesting moment bc he starts off sort of stating his general opinion off the cuff that fandoms are inherently annoying because a bunch of people collectively being enthusiastic about things is annoying to any outsider, and i think he thought it was funny at first when someone messaged saying that we (the phandom) are also annoying. but i feel like after a moment he backpedals and then throws some MAJOR shade about people who hate on fandoms and probably the phandom in particular (that bit starts here if u want to watch back).  it’s like he’s about to move on from the topic after just laughing about the general nature of fans being annoying but then he’s like hOLD UP, actually!!!! and then i LOVE his comments after? he talks about how ppl being annoyed by fandom is probably more indicative of the nature of the person who’s feeling annoyed than it is indicative of the nature of fandom itself. he kind of makes it a point to talk about how actually fandom is just a bunch of people making a community for themselves and having a lot of fun and how if someone takes issue with that maybe theyre just insecure or jealous bc they dont have a space like that themselves. and i think this is so revealing on a lot of levels, the most obvious being that dan just Gets fandoms, having been on the internet and dabbled in fannish pursuits himself. but also imo this is dan kind of responding in his own subtle way to all of the people who have issues with him and phil and any other popular ‘mainstream’ youtuber (or media in general, whether its ariana grande or whatever) PURELY bc of their fan base. there’s a whole slew of people who take his and phil’s careers less seriously or not seriously at all because their success is founded upon what is perceived to be the rabid support of ‘fangirls’ who, obviously, are just collectively derided and disliked by a lottttt of people (be it other creators on the platform or just outsiders in general to youtube overall) due to a deep-seated misogyny for teenage girls first of all, but also an insistence that if anyone likes anything en masse then it must be vapid/dumb and the ppl who like it must all be completely stupid and shallow and not interested in anything w intellectual merit etc. etc.. and i think this was dan’s little way of saying like nah yall bitches are just jealous that you and your content have not been able to engender this sort of community and enthusiasm and excitement amongst your viewers and if youre annoyed by seeing fandoms come into existence and contribute to the success of certain entertainers or media, then its on yOU to examine why exactly you have a problem with that, and also you are probably bitter and insecure. i fucking live for that kind of shade and dan taking pride in what he and phil have given rise to with the phandom. it’s not rly even about him validating the existence of this community, but rather him validating the success of his career and phil’s too, bc finding success out of your appeal to large numbers of women/girls/young people is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, and nothing that should devalue that success in the first place. so yeah i was just rly rly proud of that addition to his answer.

what do you think of the cover of Girls Made of Snow and Glass? bc i think it's pretty boring but people keep saying it's rly good? idk it doesn't even look YA to me. do you think there's something special here that i'm just not seeing?

ok i am not unbaised because Melissa Bashardoust is a lowkey internet buddy of mine (and also i’m INSANELY EXCITED TO READ IT AHHHHHHHHH) but I really like it. I was surprised by how starkly minimal it is when they first released it, and yes, the result is that it doesn’t look YA, but as a book with major crossover appeal (and also with the job of visually differentiating itself from the eight billion other YA fairytale retellings) I don’t think that’s a bad thing.

Age bracket-signaling aside, though, GMSG is a masterclass in relatively minimalist cover design. Designing minimally is harder than designing something more complicated, because you have to be in complete command of every single detail and this just! nails it! the typography is super simple but everything is perfect; the spacing, balance, hierarchy, the slight interest you get from “of” and “and” being in italics, the type pairing with the sans-serif author name. There’s no unnecessary textures or effects to bog it down; the designer knew what they were doing and were confident that that was enough, and that confidence and skill comes though. (it also comes through in the fact that there’s not a drop shadow on “snow and glass”– a lesser designer/ anyone who works at harpercollins might have been temped to put one to help it stand out from the icicles, but we don’t need it.) The imagery of the icicles provides organic detail in contrast to the simple letterforms (and is placed a lot less randomly than it looks; tangents are being very carefully avoided) and that combined with the stark black and white makes the mood of the cover bleak and cold without, as we have discussed before re: the covers of Wintersong and Stealing Snow, stamping snowflakes and sparkles on everything. I have it on good authority that this is appropriate re: the book’s contents.

So yeah, i mean, if you think it’s boring, liking minimal design is a matter of personal taste, but I think it’s pretty close to flawless on a technical level. And it may not be a very YA cover, but I’m all for variation in the market + increased ability for booksellers to handsell to adults.
