i'm actually pretty pleased with it so far

Reminder: Kakashi loves you.

  • it honestly amazes me how well akaashi knows bokuto. besides the whole list of weaknesses + solutions to combat them, he really knows how to read bokuto’s body language and mood well. he tries his best to understand bokuto through his ups and downs and that just screams how much akaashi cares about him. but seriously, i think it’s cute how they hang out outside practice too bc it shows how akaashi thinks of bokuto more than just the “ace/teammate.”
  • maybe… when bokuto started getting frustrated that his cross-spikes were getting blocked, maybe that’s when all the endless spiking practices started and akaashi agreed to practice w/ him because a happy bokuto is a happy akaashi. he’ll help bokuto jump over any hurdle they meet.
  • akaashi knows bokuto is capable of reaching his full potential (and beyond) on his own. in ch.244 when akaashi says he can only draw out bokuto’s top condition for a short time, i’d like to think that akaashi knows that bokuto just needs a little push from time to time, but the rest is all bokuto. akaashi believes in bokuto.
  • several months ago, i said how bokuto has complete trust in akaashi and i’m screaming bc of they think so fondly of each other and i’m just :’))) please get together. the day akaashi directly compliments bokuto, i will cry. will it happen at some point during spring interhigh?? bokuto’s graduation?? /cries
  • sometimes i wonder how far fukurodani will make it in nationals (i’m on the empty boat that thinks fukurodani’s gonna win, mainly bc my heart is gonna shatter if they don’t) but i really can’t decide. 100% sure nekoma v. karasuno will happen soon, but WHEN lol… i’ll just let the manga unfold itself c:

Hi! I saw that you were one of the few that weren't hating on TW, but likes Sterek. I'm kinda new to the fandom, only been here a year or so, and I'm a bit confused. I know a lot of the people from the Sterek fandom don't like Jeff, but could you please tell me what exactly did he do, except not make Sterek canon? As far as I saw, Posey was the one to make the douchy comments, was Jeff actually an asshole or is just that his view of (his) show didn't match the one of the fandom? Thanks!

Nonny, I’m not gonna lie - this has been a pretty challenging ask to answer. I’ve reorganized and rewritten this a few times as it involves summing up a lot of interwoven things that have happened since the Teen Wolf fandom exploded in size between season 2 and season 3A. Because of that, I may be off on some of the details and definitely haven’t managed to include everything, but this should be the important bits, more or less.

Jeff has said plenty of kind things about Sterek and Sterek fans as well as encouraging shipping and other fannish activities but there is no denying that the man is a troll. He twists the truth and misleads people like Peter Hale in order to avoid giving away real spoilers. People do get a bit pissed about that but it isn’t the main reason why people hate on him so much.


First and foremost is fan expectations of what the show should be vs. what it actually is. These expectations came both from the PR for Teen Wolf and from fandom (fanfic, headcanons, gifsets and image sets in isolation, etc) and portrayed Teen Wolf to be a lighter, simpler show instead of accurately showing it to be horror with some pretty complex stuff going on under the surface for anyone willing to investigate. This covers complaints about things like favorite characters being tortured, not being happy, seeming out of character, plot holes, and things not making sense. Athena recently covered this in more detail in this post.


The PR for Teen Wolf deserves the lion’s share of the blame. It is a completely separate entity from the show and has nothing to do with what the show is actually about. However, the vast majority of the fandom treat them as one and the same with Jeff being ultimately responsible even though he has nothing to do with their fuck ups. As covered in Athena’s post above, they sold the show as something that it wasn’t (Buffy vs cosmic horror) but it went further than that.

Ships are popular and create a lot of fan excitement so the PR team has been baiting all sorts of different ships over the years to get more people to watch the show. There were Sterek related PR promotions leading up to and during season 3 that promised the show would give them more Sterek and might make the relationship canon if they won this poll or contest or raised their voices to spread Teen Wolf. It was a shitty move that had nothing to do with what the show was about or willing to do.

The Sterek Campaign was created pretty early on by some fans as a positive thing to support Teen Wolf and show that a LOT of fans would love it if Sterek were to happen. They sent in cookies for the cast, raised money for charities, encouraging people to create fanworks and promoting them, etc but didn’t cross the line of demanding the show change for them - although other Sterek fans who weren’t officially part of the Sterek Campaign certainly did (as often happens in any fandom).

With the Sterek phenomena becoming too big for them to handle, fewer Sterek moments due to plot reasons, and the show including other relationships for Derek and Stiles (see my meta on TW and the temporary nature of relationships), the PR team started to go silent on Sterek and tried to get more viewers by promoting the other ships instead. Obviously none of that went over very well with fans. Keep in mind this went on for a few years with multiple incidents, the worst probably being Posey’s weird and twisted comment.


Unrelated to any of that, conventions started banning fans from asking actors about slash ships or getting slash fanart signed by them because of an incident in the Supernatural fandom. The vast majority of Sterek fans were blindsided and thought MTV’s or Teen Wolf’s people had banned Sterek specifically as none of the officials were willing to admit to the reasons behind the ban or who had put the ban in place. It did eventually lift but the damage was already done.


As far as the meta was concerned, romantic Sterek still looked completely solid. Although it has become more and more subtle as time went on, which could either be what Jeff wanted or it could be corporate meddling. Eaddy Mays hinted that Jeff’s corporate bosses might have told him he wasn’t allowed to do romantic Sterek, possibly in reaction to all the drama above. It’s also possible that corporate talent representation for Dylan or Hoechlin put the brakes on it, but we don’t know for sure. It is still possible we might get a hint of romantic Sterek towards the end of the last episode, but Hoechlin’s and Dylan’s availability for this season certainly will have complicated getting there. But I’m straying into a tangent.


In summation, it’s been a cluster fuck of stuff that has festered over the years. Most of the problems happened around the show instead of on the show but people didn’t see a need to make that distinction as it all affected their perception and experience of the show as fans. With Jeff being the creator, he’s the figurehead and scapegoat for that negative experience.

Hiiii just recently found your blog and I'm loving it so far BUT I am confused on the AU like is it a written fanfic and you draw some scenes in comics or is only comic and if so do you post it only on tumblr os is there a place where I can find it? It looks really cool and I'd like to read it from the begining pretty please with sugar on top

I actually just draw comcis, pics for the AU I don’t write (because I suck at it haah)
There are some fanfiction to some scenes but not by me :)

 *slams mouse so far to the left it flies into a wall*

(this may or may not be a partner to the fic i wrote earlier today???? it’s not an exact parallel to any actual moment in it but it’s similar idk)

Honestly what even is so great about ml? Like I've tried to watch the first season but it literally seems like any other kids show, it's so damn boring. But like why are so many teens and adults die hard fans of this show when it's meant for 10 year olds like come on please tell me why it's so interesting cuz I honestly really want to know on a fans pov. No lie I'm actually very interested to find out what brings adults into this.

There are lots of reasons people love miraculous. For one, despite it being a kids’ show, it’s one of the many that are coming out now that have been designed not just for the enjoyment of kids, but for the whole family. A new trend, but one that I think is pretty awesome. 

As far as the show itself, it has dynamic, interesting characters. The cast is diverse. The main female protagonist is not only a badass, but a woman of color. We will see a cast of strong females in the future–a team of superheroes that is majority female and boasts two woman of color (which is better than the Avengers movie cast). The male cast member breaks gender stereotypes and respects his partner as an equal. It’s a show about superheroes–everyone loves superheroes. It’s got a romantic subplot, but the tension between identities as well as the non-traditional roles of the characters makes it fresher than what we see in most romances. The lore, while not expanded a ton in the current show, will be soon enough (most likely). We see some mystery and drama cropping up with the male protagonist’s family, as well as with his abusive relationship with his father. There are lots of reasons to find the show interesting. 

Now, I’m not saying it doesn’t have its cringe-worthy moments, or moments when you just want to sigh and ask why they’re SO stupid, but overall it’s a good experience and I would imagine that, with more funding and more backing behind the show, it will continue to get better from where it is now. 

As far as it being a kids’ show, I really don’t see how that’s relevant. Just because it’s something kids can enjoy doesn’t mean adults can’t enjoy it as well. It’s got a light tone (for now) and is generally enjoyable. And the lore, or lack of it, as well as the relationships, is super inspiring to fandom. There’s a reason I was able to write an epic fanfiction around it. 

No, it’s not everyone’s favorite, but that has nothing to do with it being a “kids’ show” and more to do with it simply not being some people’s cup of tea. You are at liberty to dislike the show if you please, but if you do take issue with it, please do not assume that those of us who do enjoy it are somehow at fault for it being targeted at children. Zootopia was a “kids’ movie” and people all over the world enjoyed that. So was Frozen. 

In any case, hope that helps some.

None of the Naruto movies are canon except this one ...

I find it very interesting to see that the one Naruto movie which is actually canon, is about romantic love. When you consider that Naruto is a shounen franchise and all … LOL.

And what I find even more interesting is that this only canon movie so far, stars Hinata as the heroine, the female lead of the story. Important much?

I’m pretty pleased : )

So you guys know (from my spam) that my high school graduation was on Friday. And I really wanted to share the dress that I wore to my formal, because it was inspired by the dress Taylor wore to the winter white gala, I’m not as slim or pretty as Tay, but I’m so in actual love with this dress, it’s the most amazing things that I’ve ever worn. But I really want

taylorswift

I'm gettin' pretty annoyed because of all that spam and dumb gifs you keep posting but I don't wanna quit following your blog - I like your actual TS4 posts and CC. -_-

You know, I never thought I would ever get one of these messages. It is usually ‘other people’ getting these, not me. So far, all my followers have been supportive, and I thought the sort of anons bitching about how they should dictate what other people posted were a myth. 

So you know what I am gonna say to you and your thoughts? Unfollow me. I am not here to please you or my followers. I post what I want and that isn’t gonna change. Period. I want people to follow me because they like what I post. Not bitch to me on anon that they have an issue with me 'spamming them’ (which btw, I 80-90% of it appropriately) with replies and WIP pics, but only like my TS4 images and CC. You know how that makes me feel? It makes me feel used. And I get angry at people that make me feel used. If you are shocked at this reply, you must be new around here. I don’t take shit, especially from people doing it behind a cloak and veil. The only reason I can think of for the reasoning behind you 'sharing’ this with me was to piss me off. Bravo. You accomplished your goal. 

This is MY space and i will post what I like. Don’t like it? Hit the road. I would point you to the unfollow button, but I think you are familiar with it by now. I advise you to use it. 

Any further anon replies will be deleted. I don’t have to put up with this entitlement shit. I doubt you got past the first sentence too. If you made it this far, bravo. Now go find that unfollow button.
