i'll write basically anything as long as i know the fandom

psa for the yoi fandom: russian names & how to use them

Russian guides: masterpost | patronyms | terms of affection | answered asks

I’m going to start by swearing this isn’t me just complaining but a general resource for the Yuri on Ice fandom because I’ve noticed some mistakes in the naming conventions used among the fandom and want to help correct them. Especially in how the fandom treats diminutives. I absolutely love seeing the huge amount of interest in Russian diminutives, etc. in fanart and fics and hopefully this breakdown will help continue that trend and interest and even spur some more ideas in fandom content.

So let’s go through some important details below the cut!

shit okay this got long, but if you have any questions feel free to ask me or any B.A.P blog on here, theres so many and I can give you some of the best if you feel like joining the fandom. We’re all really chill really meme-y sweet people and always welcome new babys to the fandom with open arms! 

hi yes i believe today is the day to talk about way-too-codependent jack and gabe and ignore everything canon says about how jack became a super soldier (inspired by the first couple pics on this post) 

so they meet shortly before undergoing the “soldier enhancement” (aka: we’re trying to make a captain america let’s see which of you survives lol of course your chances are high) program and are politely kind to each other. they’re sitting in the debriefing room, both way earlier than the other subjects and alone. they chat a bit, jack makes gabe laugh with a ‘jarhead’ joke, and eventually the other subjects trickle in. 

there’s a lot of them. at least a hundred. gabe and jack get separated as they’re given numbers— gabe is 91, jack is 76. they take fifteen at a time, and the room slowly empties over the course of the entire day. jack’s was the second to last group, gabe’s the last. 

there’s injections and probes and so many ethically questionable pills and drugs pumped into their systems. the ones that don’t get nosebleeds are dragged gracelessly out to fancy, soft, cozy, barracks 

like the blankets are the softest jack ever felt and the pillows are super fluffy. they drop him off on the bottom bunk closest to the door and he passes out, not even bothering to struggle under the blankets

he wakes up maybe two hours later because someone flops on top of him. he can barely move, like all of his limbs are full of sludge and muck. he groans questioningly and cracks his eyes open to see gabe curling into his side

“wha–?” 

he points in the general direction of the ceiling and/or the top bunk. “too many steps.” 

“nngh” he means that to be an acquiescing tone, but he doesn’t think the sentiment gets across. his head flops over to rest on top of gabe’s and they both pass out

With 15 years since Band Of Brothers was first shown and the fandom being stronger than ever, it’s more than fitting to have some kind of celebration to show our appreciation. This is going to span the next two months, dedicating a week to each of the episodes by posting different kinds of creations. 

You can contribute whatever you want - graphics, gif sets, art, videos, writing (fics, poems, etc.), you name it! As long as what you post is your own creation*, anything is welcome! You can post as many things as you want for each episode, but please try to keep work for each episode to the week assigned to it! Ex. If you miss one week, then please wait with posting things meant for that week’s episode until the end, so that we don’t mix them up too much! 

The only rule to remember: what you create for each week has to relate to the assigned episode! (AUs are welcome, but try to keep them contained within the episode belonging to that week and still focused on that episode. An AU could span multiple episodes if you want, but then you’d either have to wait with posting it until the end (if it’s one big thing), or post one part each week (if it’s multiple things, for example; fic chapters). 

Feel free to make things ahead of time (I know I will!), but please resist posting them until the assigned dates for the episode you’ve made it for! Also, you obviously don’t have to make something for each episode if you don’t want to. You can pick and choose as you wish!

The tag you can use to share your things (besides the normal Band Of Brothers tag) is #bob15th (please only use it for things relating to the anniversary celebration - regular things concerning Band Of Brothers should go in the normal tag!). 

Right, to the dates for the episodes! Each episode will have the day it aired + the days between it and the next episode. None of them will overlap (except for Currahee and Day Of Days, as they aired on the same day), so there will be lots of room for each episode to be appreciated!

The dates are as follows:

  • Currahee & Day Of Days - 9-15 Sep.
  • Carentan - 16-22 Sep.
  • Replacements - 23-29 Sep.
  • Crossroads - 30 Sep. - 6 Oct.
  • Bastogne - 7-13 Oct.
  • The Breaking Point - 14-20 Oct. 
  • The Last Patrol - 21-27 Oct.
  • Why We Fight - 28 Oct. - 3 Nov.
  • Points - 4-11 Nov.

If you happen to rewatch the show on the days they air and want to post about it so that other people celebrating the anniversary can see, then feel free to use the #bob15threwatch tag! And if anyone wants to set up somewhere where we can watch the show together on the days the episodes aired, then feel free to let me know (and feel free to use the tag to post about it!). It’d be a lot of fun to watch the episodes together!!

I think that’s all! If there are any questions about anything, then I’m right here, so feel free to pop into my inbox at any time! (Also feel free to message Ed (aka malarked) if I’m not around, and he’ll help you out!) Can’t wait to see what all of you make for this during the next couple of weeks!

(*Basically, don’t repost. Reposting is really shitty (no matter if it’s with credit), and it shouldn’t be happening at all in our small fandom. Any reposts found in the tag shouldn’t be reblogged or liked, because that’s just supporting the reposter! Don’t know how to spot reposts/what a repost is? Here is a great post on the topic! And here’s another one! And here’s a third! Any questions about this? Feel free to send them my way!)

Changes to this blog (+ leaving the phandom)

Hey, frens!

So, I think most people have realized by now that I decided to take a few steps to change this blog from what it originally was. When I first conceived this blog, it was a place to post about D&P only, because it was my new Thing and it was taking up too much space on my main blog, so I figured that having a fandom-specific blog would be a good idea. And it was, for a long time. I can say I had some great times here in this community, despite all the bad moments I’m sure you all have seen. 

I don’t feel like I fit in the phandom anymore for a number of reasons and that’s why I decided to take some definite steps to move this blog away from a phan blog into something more general. Some people have asked about it (and I don’t mind answering if you have any further questions, there’s also a few stuff in my opinions tag), but basically I disagree with a lot of decision D&P have made recently and their content doesn’t bring me the same enjoyment it used to. Plus, they haven’t been posting enough anyway to keep this blog running like it used to, especially since there’s more touring ahead of us. 

I guess I can say running this blog the way it was before was getting to be more of a chore than a pleasure to me. The only thing that kept me here was all the history I had and the difficult time I had letting go of the good parts of it. But I realized I don’t really have to let go of the good times or anything silly like that. 

I can keep this blog and make it into something that makes me happy and you guys get to decide if it’s something you want to see or not. No hurt feelings either way. It’s been an amazing journey and I had some great times, but it’s definitely time for me to broaden this blog’s horizons. Maybe one day, if things change, I’ll go back to being a phan blog. It’s hard for me to continue calling myself a part of this community as it stands now.

This doesn’t mean I don’t like/watch Dan and Phil anymore, I just toned it down a lot. I still love them and I will continue to watch their videos casually (and reblog some stuff about them from time to time, why not?), but it won’t be what this blog is about anymore. I also intend to continue to read (and rec) phanfiction because I honestly love the creativity from this community. And, if you’ll still have me, I’d still love to continue to be a phanfic writer, maybe write more AUs and stuff like that. I think I can make it work and I love having people who want to read it still. I feel like I have more stories to tell.

Anyway, this isn’t a goodbye. But if you’re here only for the phan, it might as well be. This is a general youtubers blog now and I intend to blog about some of the other creators I’ve enjoyed for a while (and you can see most of them already by the posts I’ve been reblogging but yeah there’s probably more that you’ll find out along the way). I think it’s exciting to bring some variety to the content and I feel happier with this blog than I’ve felt in a long time! I hope you’ll stay in for the ride, but, again, if this isn’t your cup of tea you’re totally free to go <3 I’ll understand.

And thank you to the phandom. It may be pretty broken at the moment (and I’ll be the first to say that it’s REALLY bad right now like omg), but it’s been a (albeit a bit dysfunctional) home for me and so many others. I made some amazing friends who I love very dearly and met so many special incredible people in this community. Thank you! <3 And I’m truly sorry it has to end this way.

Thoughts on the TWD/TTD finale (at least regarding Beth)

I know. I know. I’ve even said before, the show is not all about Beth, nor Bethyl.

I think most of us realize that and accept it, but it’s still hard to remember when we’ve been starved for answers for so long.

The thing is, we really do need to remember that there’s more to the show and the fandom at large than us Beth fans. We are the minority - by a long shot - which makes watching the show very difficult sometimes. They toss us these little easter eggs to get our hopes (or keep our hopes) up, but to a NBF (non-beth fan) they just fly by on the screen without a second thought. The music box, the blonde walkers, the people surviving head wounds on the show and the comics - they’re all just coincidences to the average, everyday, casual viewer. To us “Bethlievers,” however, they’re pure gold, and feed us just enough to keep us hoping. Hoping for answers, for resolution, for closure - hoping that TPTB will give us SOMETHING! We might relate everything to Beth, but we have to keep in mind that not every little thing is a direct link to her, as much as we’d like it to be.

The finale last night was, I thought, very good. It brought some long-standing issues to a close, but left enough to get viewers looking forward to Season 6 in the fall. No, we didn’t get the answers we as Beth fans were looking for - we’ve been given nothing but those easter eggs for any indication that Beth is still alive or if she is, in fact, dead. I’m not giving up. I’ve got new lawn chairs ordered for my hut on Denial Isle and am tempted to hire a cabana boy to keep my margarita glass full at all times. Beth is alive, and some of the things I saw last night only cemented that idea as a fact in my brain.

The episode itself (in no particular order) -

  • Aaron again recognizing that Daryl sees the good in people. I was just WAITING for Daryl to say something about how he had learned from Beth that not everyone is bad, that it was because of her that he’s the man he is today. That teeny tiny grin told me he was thinking it. 
  • Tara finally waking up after receiving a massive head wound after everyone on that run thinking she was a goner. Notice it took her three days to recover. (Imagine how long it would take to recover from a gunshot wound to the head…)
  • The music box up and working again, and Judith was absolutely entranced by it.
  • Morgan saying “Everything gets a return,” not once, but twice. Even his attempt at convincing those two Wolves to just leave him alone, trying to make peace with someone before just jumping to fighting…just reminded me of Beth.
  • The whole Team Family (except for Carol threatening to kill Pete) was showing how GOOD they were - Glenn sparing Nicholas (douche canoe)’s life; Abraham and Eugene apologizing for everything that went down between them; Rick admitting he’d screwed up; Sasha seeking the good in Father Gabriel. In a way, even Gabriel finally stepping up made me think of Beth, even though he’d never met her. He finally took care of himself when the walker with the noose came after him, then took mercy on the half-eaten man in the road and killed him before he could suffer anymore or turn into a walker. (Hmm…Gabriel was basically suicidal, then decided he wanted to live after all…interesting…)

I’m sure there’s more, but without re-watching the whole episode, that’s what comes to mind. Perhaps one day I’ll do an addendum, but today is not that day.

The Talking Dead

  • I was pissed, as I’m sure most of us are, that Gimple took himself off the couch. “Everyone just wants to talk to the cast members anyway.” Horse shit. He’s probably the one most of the questions were for, asking, begging, demanding answers for how things went down this season, but what could he say? “Sorry, I can’t answer that?” If he kept saying that to all the questions, especially questions regarding Beth, it would be obvious that he’s covering something up. Or (remembering that we’re the minority) lie to the camera and say, “Sorry, Beth’s not coming back.” And then if/when she DOES come back next season, he gets a boat load more hate from the rest of the fandom for lying (see how it feels, jerks?) Like I said, I was super pissed that he wasn’t there to answer questions, but I get why he did it.
  • Something Lennie said made me just fall in love with him (aside from his accent…good lord…complete non-sequitur, but british/australian/irish accents just do it for me). Chris Hardwick had asked him what had changed Morgan from being “cray cray” (as Lennie called it) to this almost zen-like “all life is beautiful” state that he’s in now. Lennie said that something had happened to him to get him to change his way of thinking. Gee…who does that sound like? Isn’t that EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED BETWEEN BETH AND DARYL? She showed him there were still good in people, and even taught him how to see it just as he was teaching her how to track and hunt. Is it possible that Morgan found his way to Grady and had met Beth before making his way toward Washington, DC? You bet your sweet bippy it’s possible.
  • I found it very strange that there were NO questions about Beth. I mean, I know we make up a small percentage of the fandom as Beth/Bethyl fans, but I thought at least SOMEONE would get through with a “Where was Beth’s funeral?” or “Why didn’t we see what happened to Beth’s body?” or SOMETHING. The questions are undoubtedly screened, and TPTB are very good at keeping things secret when they want them to be.

Other thingie-things

  • The AMC Walking Dead Character Bio page STILL hasn’t been updated. It looks like they haven’t updated at all since the beginning of Season 5. Some may argue that they’re just lazy, but a huge draw like Walking Dead, ranked the most popular show on television, and the website coordinator is just taking his time getting around to it, but has the time to update all the other shows, and post pictures and videos…not to mention all the social media? They’ve already got a page up for Fear the Walking Dead, but they can’t update their flagship show’s page? I don’t buy it. I truly believe that they realized they can’t update. If they did, and posted that Bob and Tyreese had been killed, but that Beth had just been shot, that would give away that she hadn’t died. If they only update the guys and not hers, same outcome. We’ll see what happens now that the season is over, but I suspect they’re holding out until Beth is revealed as being alive.
  • And speaking of social media, they certainly like putting Beth’s beautiful face up in their posts, don’t they? She gets an awful lot of screen time for “just another dead girl.” Andrea and Lori certainly didn’t get this kind of attention.
  • Noah isn’t even listed as one of the characters on the AMC site. They just…forgot to add him? No. They couldn’t add him, because why would they update that part of the page and not scroll up and say, “by the way Tyreese and Bob are dead, too”  Because they’d still have to leave Beth’s bio the way it is?
  • Even the episode recap for Coda just says that she was shot, that they cried over her body, but not that she was dead.
  • Why would Nicotero make such a big point on TTD  that seventeen days had passed between Coda and WHAWGO? Why is that significant when the very next episode, Rick states that it’s been three weeks since Atlanta. What’s the difference in those four days?
  • Norman was eerily silent last night on social media. Usually we at least get a “it’s sunday night let’s do this” type of tweet from him. Granted he’s a busy guy, but the fact that he usually tweets from TTD greenroom or in the car ride over to the studio and last night he didn’t post anything regarding the show makes me wonder…
  • Those clips from WHAWGO that never came to fruition. Especially:
  1. Daryl, Glenn, Abraham and Rick running through the city street. Daryl had been carrying Beth - why the hell would he put her down…UNLESS they realized she wasn’t dead and had to leave her. 
  2. That blurry image of someone swaying back and forth on the left side of the screen (Maggie? Glenn?)

There’s a whole lot of questions and clues that have me firmly embedded in the trenches of team delusional, team wtf, team logic, denial isle. I just find it hard to believe that a show that has done such brilliant writing as to set up Beth’s character would all of a sudden drop the ball like they did. Hardwick read a message from Gimple last night where he restated that they basically reinvent the show every eight episodes. They’ll use different tactics and plot devices to keep the viewers engaged and still do the story justice. I wonder what changes will come next season.

As we embark on this hiatus, I am still incredibly hopeful. I certainly feel a lot better about the way this season ended than I did last season. I just ask everyone to keep in mind that:

1) this is Rick’s story…Rick and Carl’s to be more correct. Most action and development are going to center around those two. Yes, we’ll get scenes of other characters throughout the episodes, but if we don’t see Beth or get any indication that she’s still alive, it doesn’t necessarily mean she’s really gone.

2) Remember - Merle was gone for a season and a half…Beth’s been gone half a season. She’s got to recover/wake up from her head wound, then, possibly, go through some kind of physical therapy to get herself moving again.

3) On top of that, she has no idea where the rest of her family went, so it might take her a while to get up to ASZ. (or, take a while for someone to find her still alive and well at Grady, as I theorized in this post).

Wow…this got REALLY long. Sorry about that. Basically, don’t give up on our girl. Whenever you start freaking out and getting all worried, know that my ask is always open and I am eager to talk to anyone any time.
