i'm a fan of all ships

Kara x Lena cuteness for everyone

A Post-The Lying Detective Message:

(Spoilers, duh)

So, there’s something I just want to say as a fan of Sherlock regarding the latest episode and our fandom in general.

The Lying Detective gave each ship a little something…

  • Johnlockers got a rescue and a hug
  • Adlockers got a birthday text and confirmation of reciprocated correspondence
  • Sherlollians got a physical examination: “tell me when to cough” and a birthday outing with cake

So let’s put away the ship-bashing and agree to disagree that each one of these pairings has potential.

Sherlock has emotional investment in John and Irene and Molly. That’s something we all have to accept. However, whether this emotional investment signifies friendship or romantic feelings is ultimately up to Moftiss to decide.

I think it’s wonderful that the show sparks so many emotions from us and it speaks to the diversity of us all that we can ship so many different ships! So let’s keep expressing our shipping feels, but do so on each ship’s respective tags. Let’s try to all get along. 

I know Sherlockians are renowned for being a little crazy, but I think there’s something we can all agree upon: we love our show!!!
Let’s make sure that this love and respect is felt across the entire Fandom! <3

Stop 👏🏼 acting 👏🏼 like 👏🏼 Yuzuru Hanyu 👏🏼 is 👏🏼 Yuuri 👏🏼 Katsuki

This shouldn’t even have to be said, but guess what?? It does!

Recently, I’ve seen a lot of YOI fans get interested in Irl skating, which is great. You know what’s not great? Taking real life skaters, real life people, and acting like they are nothing more than characters in this amazing anime. They are humans, not characters.

Yuzuru Hanyu is a 22-year old ice skater from Japan, and he is absolutely amazing. He’s broken multiple world records, preformed amazingly despite him taking a face first fall on the ice (which really fucking hurts), etc

But kind of comments does he get for that? Comments like:

“Bruhhhh it’s a real life Yuri Katsuki!”

“Where’s his Viktor at 😂”

“*referring to when he clashed into another skater and took a face first slam onto the ice* OMG what if this happened in YOI”
These are actual comments I have scene on YouTube videos about Yuzuru’s skating/his performances

Oh and let’s not forget the little bitch who changed Yuzuru’s entire Wikipedia page to fit as if he was Yuuri (they changed his name, and took off all the names of his coaches and put Viktor, and just messed up a lot of articles)

Do you understand how messed up this is? This isn’t some anime for this man, this is his career; his life.

What’s okay: getting interested into ice skating due to YOI, making comparisons to skaters to characters: but not overly so, to admire ice skaters

What’s not okay: acting like irl ice skaters are Yuri On Ice characters, making serious situations that happen to ice skaters something related to a ship or any situation in Yuri On Ice, harassing a real life skater due to resemblance they might share to any character

Cmon YOI fandom, I know you aren’t bad people.

Okay, this hurts so much, but it’s also among the most beautiful videos, I have to share it.

Highly recommend to watch it:
1. in HD,
2. using both earphones,
3. preparing your handkerchief,
4. there were 5x13 contents in it, but hey, those canon thing didn’t really happen in canon right? so it’s alright.

Happy birthday Guang Hong!

Just friendly reminder that our sweet flower Guang Hong Ji, the cutest and purest of them all is turning 18 today and he’s probably spending this time with his family being excited about presents and eating a lot of sweets and replying to his friends and fans on Instagram but he just can’t wait for his daily chat with Leo and he doesn’t really know why until Leo smiles to him and says that now he’s an adult he totally could fly to the USA by himself and they could do some cool stuff together “like you can drink now and umm, kiss people and-d go to clubs of course, I know where they play the best music and…” he stops because Guang Hong is laughing and blushing a bit and goes “that kissing part was really specific, are you asking me on a date or sth?” and Leo just smirks and says “well, not really but if you are then I would say yes” and they just sit there smiling like two idiots for a while before Guang Hong whispers “I hope I will spend my next birthday with you” and Leo’s heart just stops beating for a second.

Not aimed at anyone here, just venting personal stuff because my email is a clusterfuck this morning.

No ‘Susan’, your 'fans’ aren’t attacking you for writing 'hetero-romance’ you’re not being criticized for writing a romance book involving a m/f ship.

What was actually said was 'oh no another bland generic carbon copy of all your previous work involving a m/f pairing, maybe you should try something new?’ and you went off the deep end ranting about 'homosexuals demanding’ you change the way you write and how you were being 'oppressed’ by the gays and wondering why the publishing house dropped you.

And no I won’t edit your next book 'as a favor’, fuck off.

Enjoy your plummeting career, you mediocre homophobic hack.

HAPPY HOLBY TUESGAY!! Just a bit of silliness to get a fan girl through Robbie’s reappearance 😋

I don’t understand where this fandom mentality comes from that everyone has to like all the characters within a book/series/movie? And people start fighting you if you don’t like one character to the same extent as they do?

Like, be happy that people enjoy their favourite character (or ship). That they are so inspired by them that they write fanfic, draw fanart or develop headcanons for them. They share their love and you can do the same with your favourite characters - that’s the point of fandom.

But attacking other fans because they don’t include every single character for reasons that they are entirely their own? It doesn’t matter if you agree or not. Everyone has preferences and they are allowed to have them.

Seriously, since “Winter” was released, this fandom has become a minefield.
And I don’t mean that the character of Winter changed it, but it’s the tone of the discussions. It’s not so much about respectful, informative discussions anymore. It’s gotten nasty with a few people insulting and bullying other fans for their preferences with a self-righteousness that is seriously uncalled for.

Because now, if you don’t include a certain character, you are called out for whatever inane reason. I once got the question once why I didn’t include a certain ship for a story idea I had. Why is that any of their concern? It’s my story idea, either you like it or not but I’m not playing character bingo and include everyone just because the fandom thinks I have to because they are in the original story. That’s what fanfic is for, to expand on the characters you love, maybe all of them or just one of them, but that isn’t anyone’s business. If I see a story tagged with Character X, I’m not asking the author, “hey, where’s Character Y?” That story isn’t for me, so I move on to stories that are.

Because here’s the thing: No one owes you anything.

No one has to write a fic you enjoy.

No one has to draw a fanart that you can reblog.

No one has to spend their time of the day on characters they don’t like just because they feel pressured to do so.

But: Everyone deserves respect. Or, at least, just because someone has a different opinion, it doesn’t give you the right to insult them. Opinions are not facts.

You don’t have to agree with someone but it’s not too much to ask to treat them with a minimum of respect. Especially over something as personal and random as favourite characters/ships.

For next year, I do hope we leave this kind of mentality behind us, so people can resume creating content they enjoy for people who appreciate it, without being attacked for not doing it as some people might see fit. I’m not naive, I know there will always be drama and shipper wars or whatever. But this year, it was no fun being in the TLC fandom. And I say this especially in regard to the TLC shipweeks.

The creators of shipweeks are putting a lot of effort into it. The fans are putting a lot of effort into their work, too. So, if you are not happy that your character/ship/brotp isn’t as included as much as you would like, create your own content. Spread the love. But respect other people’s choices.

And for every other fan: Just have lots of fun with TLC, with your favourite characters and ships and don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t allowed to.

Inuvember Day 13: Koga Ships!

i don’t even have anything to say drawing this made me burt into tears

Final Thoughts

So here we have this beautiful well-thought out episode created by these two geniuses and everyone is complaining about how a freakin /fan based ship/ isn’t canon?? Like- is that all you care about when it comes to a tv series? Weather these two characters will get together and share their whole lives together that you completely miss the whole context of the show??

The Final Problem [the whole show for shit’s sake] was /filled/ with character development. We watched in the beginning as Sherlock started off as this aloof character who showed very little emotions to the end where Sherlock was breaking down just so he could save the people closest to him. We saw him finally opening up and finally allowing himself to not be so closed off. To me, that is the most satisfying thing I could ever want with a character.

YES, I know a majority of you are upset due to the lack of LGBTQ+ representations in media. So am I. But you’re completely ignoring the fact that love isn’t always openly expressive. It can be shown through words without saying the “I love you"s , it can be shown through gestures without the "long hugs.” And that is something I love the most about John and Sherlock’s relationship. They love each other without even having to show it and you know what the best part is? They’re not together. It shows that love isn’t always a romantic relationship, but this strong bond that you have with someone. I rarely get to see love in film shown this way because it’s always portrayed as a, “boyfriend and girlfriend” thing or “boyfriend and boyfriend”, “girlfriend and girlfriend.”

I do think that Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat made the right idea not to put John and Sherlock into a romantic relationship. To me it would have been forced just so that they could please the fan base. Also it would be really out of character to throw in a kissing scene or a handholding scene??
In the long run, I hope everyone will get their representation that they deserve and I will truly miss this mastermind that is BBC’s Sherlock.

I don't understand why it's so bad for gency to be canon? It doesn't seem like a bad ship to me and I don't think it's right for fans to get angry just because pharmercy is the more popular ship

boi we’re doing this aren’t we

(feel free to add stuff i missed, i took this stuff from here & here)

first off you should read this very well written post about the trope that fits this ship. as a non-native speaker, this person worded this aspect of my problem with this ship much better than i ever could

i’m not just disgusted by this whole “living weapon” thing, this relationship would also consist of a once broken man and a woman with a savior-complex. it would be highly unprofessional for mercy to date one of her patients (again, read the post above!) who she only saved for overwatch like it says here

“[…] Genji was rescued by Overwatch and the intervention of Dr. Angela Ziegler. The global force saw Genji as a potential asset in its ongoing operations to combat the Shimada clan. 

As Genji’s injuries left him clinging to life, Overwatch offered to rebuild his body in exchange for his help. He was put through an extensive process of cyberization, which enhanced his natural speed and agility and augmented his superlative ninja skills. 

Transformed into a living weapon, Genji single-mindedly set about the task of dismantling his family’s criminal empire.”

overwatch only saved this poor man to gain a cybernetic agent, they saved him in exchange for his help. he was betrayed, dying in pain and overwatch thought “let’s take advantage of him, angela go do ur thing :^)” 

so mercy turned genji into a “living weapon" (granted, she saved his life, but he ended up hating himself & being disgusted with his body and he probably still would be if zenyatta hadn’t helped him find himself). i hate the ways this is phrased, a weapon is an object. it’s like they turned him into a machine for overwatch, a tool to be used to take down the empire.

and he ended up hating himself

“[…] But as time passed, Genji felt increasingly at war with himself. He was repulsed by the mechanical parts of his body and could not come to grips with what he had become. When his mission was complete, he abandoned Overwatch and wandered the world in search of meaning.”

“Genji felt repulsed by his mechanical half and left Overwatch when the job was done.”

“However, he began to have an existential crisis and self-loathing regarding his cybernetic state after his mission. It was not until he encountered Zenyatta that he made peace with himself.“

know what else gets me? this

“Now, for the first time in his life, Genji is free.”

he left overwatch. he’s far away. and he’s free. now you’re telling me he’s gonna date the person who did this to him?

i think the fuck not

it’s been 3 days after TFP and I still can’t understand why people ship Eurus and Jim (maybe it’s my own preferences but even this beautifully shot scene can’t convince me in the possibility of their relationship) and why some fans think that the bodyguard is Seb and they had sex. I can suppose that the second one is connected with my not-so-good english, but Seb? This man? We’re all desperate mormor shippers who want to see Moran in the show, but pointing at every man with a gun and saying that he’s Sebastian Moran looks very silly. Sorry.
