hey sorry that i'm a SHiT who doesn't know anything but i heard that cal got a gf?? and like i figured out her name is jordan but,,.,..,. who is she???
Yeah, apparently Jordan and Cal are together!! I never really kept up with her much outside of the basic stuff I’ve gathered through the fandom because I didn’t find a real reason to haha, but she’s this girl that he’s been friends with for a while, she’s a model and she’s been in a few of his videos before. I mean I’ve never spoken to her but I’m happy for him!! Our dude needs a life and just imagining his heart all happy gives me the warmest feeling lol.
Hey, it's that anon that talked about flirting by screaming and giving cat stickers. So, yesterday he came up to me with his laptop and excitedly showed me he had the cat sticker on it. He said he's had so many people question it and stuff but everytime he looks at it he thinks of me so he keeps it there anyways. I ALMOST CRIED, it was so cute. Long story short, screaming and cat stickers work apparently! (Sorry, I know this is kinda irrelevant but I needed to tell someone)
Hey lady! No need to respond to this. Just wanted to say thanks for being so sweet, esp with that exchange about new fans. I wish we were still in the golden age of Barisi/SVU but I'm still enjoying the fandom, past & present ... reading old thoughts, and obviously old fanfic. Still so much to read! Anyway, you're incredibly kind. And in reference to another ask, I'm just glad you're still writing. No reason to feel guilty about when it's published or what you get to first. Fandom's for fun :)
Well now I’m gonna respond anyway :D
Thank you so much! I try to keep this blog positive (if a little salty) because, yes, fandom is for fun, and it’s not fun to crap on something others love, but there’s a certain amount of fun to be had when you’re being salty with friends :D
There’s definitely A LOT of old Barisi fic (some of it mine, lol but there’s new Barisi fic, too. People are still writing, and new authors are just now getting into this ship, and that thought makes me smile.
Like, if a new Barisi fan looks to the show, I’m sure they’ll feel disappointed with their lack of interactions in S18.
But if they look to AO3, they’ll find a Barisi feast! An evergrowing one, too.
People have asked me about keeping the fandom alive, and I feel that’s the best (if not the only) way. It’s a little harder when you have to find your own inspiration, but it can still be done! Our meta may be more negative right now, because it involves the actual show and its quality or lack thereof, but our fic involves Sonny and Barba, and we all love them, so our stories are positive by default :D
And thanks for saying I don’t need to feel guilty. I mean, I still do a little, lol, because I used to post fic way more frequently, but yes. I am still writing, and it really helps me, and I am having fun. Even if I’m the only one, because I can (re-)read my story but you can’t, not yet :D
btw I’m over the hump, I cracked that missing/transitional part and now it’s smooth sailing :D
Thanks again for this lovely ask, and I hope to have something new for you sometime soon <33333
Hey don't feel guilty about it! Neelam Gill is my ideal fancast too and its understandable that you thought of her as Indian. Its tough with this universe, since our countries don't really exist there so we can't really say for sure. I think its cool that ur discussing this others, and bringing things to light like with the whole Jesper thing. With books like soc, where the representation means so much to a lot of people, its cool that you're taking part in discussions that clarifies things!
thanks, i just felt like i needed to step back and reflect on myself for a moment. but yeah the representation in soc is part of what makes it so easy to love! and i’m really glad people are willing to discuss things with me at all and that this blog has a bit of traction because i can share these things. fandoms are always better when we’re all on the same page lmao.
and honestly the diversity of soc is one of my favorite topics because it’s so positive. i’m not saying i cried (i did) the last time a bunch of people came to talk to me about how much inej meant to them and how they never identified with anyone in popular books before but…it was kind of amazing and i’m happy to provide a space for these conversations :,)
It’s love. We first met when we were 15. It took another 15 years for us to sort it out. She’s an incredible woman, very special. So the fact that she said yes was a huge deal. I was in a boys’ school and she was in a girls’ school. They were doing a charity fashion show. They brought some guys over. I will never forget I was this pasty boy with freckles. I had to walk topless in the show for this school of girls. As I walked off the stage, the entire school erupted [in applause because] the best-looking guy in the school walked on. It was a very scarring moment. But afterward at the party, I saw Hannah across the room. She was very beautiful, kind and very funny. [I learned that] we had similar interests, that she loved the arts, theater…all the things that were important to me. When Hannah and I finally got together years later, I had finished rehearsing ‘Les Miserables’ and was about to start shooting it. I had four days off, I was going to Florence by myself—slightly sad. Hannah and I went on a date just before I was to leave. We had known each other for a long time, but not closely. I was like. ‘We had a wonderful evening. You wouldn’t want to go to Florence next week, would you?’ She was like. ‘That’s absurd.’ I was like, ‘No, no, no.’ She said, ‘You don’t mean that.’ I was like, ‘I do.’ The next morning, I sent my easyJet booking form to her. She let me stew for a few hours, and then she sent back her easyJet booking form. So our first proper date was in Florence, and that felt quite crazy.
I took this chance to finally draw this headcanon that had been in my headcanons notepad (yes I do have such thing in my desktop ww don’t laugh) for a while. Needless to say, it’s a Tetsu x Misono comic xD
I like the idea of Tetsu and Misono being so used to each other from
spending so much time together that they… well, do things like the one
in this comic ahaha anyway, here you go~
PSA: If you're looking to buy prints, posters, or merch and come across a site called TeeChip DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM THEM, EVER
They steal artwork from artists without their permission and attempt to resell low quality crap of it, and trick people into buying it by stating “BEST SELLER, NOT AVAILABLE IN STORES, LIMITED TIME ONLY”
And hey, guess what? Someone messaged me earlier and I found out that this “company” is selling MY ART that I definitely did not give permission to use, sell, or distribute.
This “company” literally edited out my work from the original images, rotated a few, and slapped them all onto a poster.
Uh, NO. Not cool at all.
I have already filed a DMCA and hope to have it taken down within a day, but who knows if they’ll even do that seeing as their “DMCA form” is literally an email to “someone who takes care of these matters” 🙃
PLEASE don’t support shitty “companies” like TeeChip who steal the hard work of others! If you ever recognize artwork that you suspect is stolen on any site that sells artwork or merch, please let the original artist know if you’re able to! It’s always greatly appreciated when people let us know this kind of shit is happening and we can take actions to stop it
