i'm trying to help the fandom

As we all head into the next couple years with the Stormblood release, let’s try to do better. Let’s be nicer to each other, let’s try and actively encourage each other to keep in doing what we’re doing. I’m talking to you, FFXIV fandom. In light of all the negative things, the discourse, the fallouts and the arguments, let’s just chill out and try to have a good time. Try and be kind. I’m working on it, too, I promise.

I’ve noticed a few people here and there mentioning our fandom isn’t all that welcoming these days, and that makes me a little sad. My previous fandom was never good at it either. We shouldn’t be making people feel like they have to be godly at what they do, be it writing, editing, art, or literally /whatever/. Just being a positive part of the community should be enough.

So, work with me here, and encourage your friends, your followers, your mutuals, and whoever you might come across. Tell them they’re doing a good job, that you care. You never know who might need to see that message.

A little bit of positivity goes a long way.

  • Person A: hey, can you help me find my up sexy?
  • Person B: ... I'm not falling for your jokes anymore.
  • Person A: it's not a joke, come on, I really did loose my up sexy.
  • Person B: *sighs* Maybe,.. *evil smirk* maybe, your up sexy, will show up if, I give you my down sexy.😉
  • Person A: ...what?
  • Person B: May-
  • Person A: Stop!✋ You'll only make it worse. HONESTLY, why do I even try?

Why haven’t we talked more about Kevin Price’s anxiety?

Like, in every iteration of the musical…that seems to remains constant no matter who plays him?? He seems to holds himself so tensely, makes a considerable amount to always try and be perfectly presentable, and has a lot of nervous niches such as: fixing his hair, clutching his pant legs when sitting, plastering on fake smiles, hunching in on himself, murmuring assurances to himself and having a fear/discomfort of physical contact. 

Someone help this boy??? I wish I could see this more prevalent in fics and stuff.

If you are referring to Zen as a fuckboi (originally a fuckboy), then you obviously don’t know what the word means so stop using it.

Learn hip-hop culture and then get back to me.

If you are trying to use it by twisting it into the popular incorrect use of the term, you STILL don’t know what the word means so stop using it.

Zen is still not a fuckboi.

He’s super loyal, flirts with no one else but the MC, and turns down a woman who is all over him even though it would advance his career tremendously because he has feelings for the MC. You seem to be latching onto his public persona even though you have seen many times over what he is truly like AND you know his family history and why he over compensates. 

“But he takes a lot of selfies,” you whine.

I take a lot of selfies too. The only difference is I’m not a popular actor who is known for his looks, who posts them to help keep his fandom happy.

Guess we all should stop liking all our favorite actors/performers because they are obviously all fuckbois too with their selfie posting ways.

But Zen’s a fuckboi somehow.

Things Ravenclaws Say #39
  • Ravenclaw: Just explain it to me
  • Person: Well, I don't fit in with he, she, not even really they sometimes. I prefer they though.
  • Ravenclaw: Agender!
  • Person: You know the term?
  • Ravenclaw: Well, yeah. I'm always trying to stay educated, especially when it comes to, you know, gender shit
  • Person: So will you help me out
  • Ravenclaw: Sure pal. Nonbinary pal.

See, son,
you are a blizzard,
     born of a hailstorm.
you are an inferno,
     born of a hellfire.
you are a marble statue,
     born of a carved stone.

ah, my golden-haloed iron-voiced son,
listen to my rusting words:
you and i are not that different. 
you and i are really all the same.
you burn just like i do.
you freeze just like i do.
you are just as immovable as i am,
     just as unstoppable as i am.

i did want you to be different, you know.
i did try to teach you to be better.
but i suppose wildfire can do nothing but spread. 
i suppose icestorms can do nothing but frost.
i suppose marble can do nothing but be sculpted or shattered. 
i suppose a wolf can do nothing but raise a wolf. 

maybe that’s why
we couldn’t help but fall

anonymous asked:

I love the passion you put when you talk about Benedict C. So I would like to know 5 things you love about him (physically or his personality) take your time. Thanks!

Hello! This kind of ask is always so hard to answer! But also fun, so sit back and relax…it’s going to be a long one!

Personality: I have had a few celeb crushes throughout my years and none have ever stuck, quite like Bc and it’s because of his personality, his charisma. I have never seen a celebrity as real as Bc is. This dude can’t hide his dorkness to save his life and I love that. He’s not pretending to be goofy or nerdy, this man IS a legit dorkus malorkus. And he’s never ashamed of that. Sure he can pull it together to be suave and sophisticated when needed, and who doesn’t love that kind of ‘batch that swoons are made of, BUT he can’t hide his playfulness and his childlike wonderment for the world around him.

He’s photo bombed, he’s been moved to tears, his PDA with Sophie because he’s so proud to have his girl beside him is just so sweet!!, and if he’s outraged, you bet he’s going to have his say. This man manages to move about the world like nobody is watching him, even when all eyes are on him!! and that to me is amazing. He is always himself.

Regardless of what is happening in the world, Benedict always comes across as being grateful for being alive. I’m sure it has to do with his near death experiences that make him really live the life he’s always wanted. You can’t just throw the word privileged out there and say well he grew up privileged and so he had the upper hand in the world. I don’t agree with that. I know people who have had all the privilege and done nothing with it. I know of people who have had nothing and have accomplished so much. It all comes to how you see the world, and Bc knows there is bad in this world, he knows we as global citizens are in trouble, but he doesn’t let that stop him from living and working, and from lending a hand via monetary, personal items, vocal or his time, to support whatever charity causes he can so they can get things accomplished. That is the power of Benedict Cumberbatch. He just cares and he is always trying to be the best human being he can. I don’t practice that a lot in my own life, but watching Bc and supporting him, it gives me so much encouragement to keep living and to keep striving to be the best person I can be and to always stay true to myself.

His Work Ethic: I think if anything is synonymous with the name Benedict Cumberbatch, it’s gotta be his work ethic. The man never seems to take a break! He goes from one job to the next and he still manages to fit in time with this family. But most importantly he builds up rapport with everybody he works with. The Collective have never heard a bad word from anybody that has worked with Bc. His costars seem to grow to love him and I mean how can ya not…just read above and try not be Cumberbatched! To me, Bc doesn’t just see this as a job, as a career that he’s in to make money. He loves  to act, he loves to research and learn all about what and whom he is playing. He doesn’t just put on the Belstaff coat and bam! Hes Sherlock, he doesn’t just put on the Cloak and bam! He’s Doctor Strange, he didn’t just do Smaug’s voice in a recording booth and call it a day. He actually got on the ground and became Smaug, he used his entire body to create that voice.

When Benedict uses his entire body to make the characters come to life it is just amazing. Listening to Cabin Pressure, he is Martin Crieff!! You can’t see him but just hearing him as Martin and imagining that he is the hapless but well meaning young pilot who’s always getting the short end of the stick and being bested by Douglass. It’s more than just the pitch of the voice or the accent, it’s more than just the costume he puts on. You HEAR it, you SEE it through his eyes, his hands, his facial expressions. Using all of the body’s movements and senses, that is the Cumberbatch way! Because he takes becoming these characters very seriously, he works damn hard at creating this world of fiction to come alive. Even more so when he is playing somebody who existed in real life, like Alan Turing and Billy Bulger.

Anybody can act. You just walk in, learn the script and repeat the words, right? Well not if yer Benedict Cumberbatch. That man will walk in, learn the script, ask questions, repeat the words and floor everybody in the room, because he gets right into the heart of what the character is feeling and thinking. He made me fall in love and sympathize with his Richard iii, he made me cry when lil Charles was getting berated by his mother, he made scream in pain at stephen’s first look at his damaged hands and he made me wish I could hug and comfort his Alan, at the thought of him losing his Christopher. So yes anybody can act, and anybody can work at acting, but you have to be Benedict Cumberbatch to be able to pull it off, flawlessly!

His love for Sophie: We all know that Bc is such a romantic. He learned it from watching his own father adore his mother. Bc made it known early on that what he wanted more than a successful career was to have his own family. To be married and be a father. To add children to enhance his already growing and rich life. He finally found that with Sophie Hunter and nothing in this world makes me happier, than to see Benedict with Sophie. You cannot deny that the boy has it BAD for that girl and that is why he put a ring on it and started banging out (pun intended LOL) Cumberbabies with her!!

You cannot tell me that when Bc floated down that red carpet with Sophie during the Oscars 2015, it was only because he was excited he was nominated for Best Actor. NOPE. That man floated because he was carrying sunshine wherever he went and that was because not only was he was being recognized for his work, but mama was carrying precious cargo in her belly. Of course Benedict’s work makes him happy, but the life he created with Sophie, the children they have, is what keeps that sweet man going because it’s all he’s ever wanted and I’m so glad and grateful to Sophie for keeping our boy full of sunshine that it radiates from his entire body and it affects us all in the most beautiful ways. He and Sophie make relationship goals more than just a hashtag. They make it a must for all that believe that true love is real and available to all those who seek it :)

His Face: The eyes. Those lips. That hair. And the cheekbones you could cut yourself on! sighhhh I don’t have fancy words to describe Bc’s face. All I know is that when I look at his face, the words ugly, weird, alien, otter or sloth never come to mind. I see beauty in it’s most perfect form. 

The Bc during Sherlock s1 was so young and fresh and pretty but as the years went by, the young and fresh went to dramatic and breathtaking to older and wiser and to tired with stories to tell. Benedict is an age chameleon. In his middle 30s he could look in his early 20s. Now in his early 40s he can easily look as if he was in his late 20s! He can make Sherlock look like he’s been through hell and back, (not to mention the sexiest fucked up of a mess that shezza can be) and he can make Sherlock look at peace and happy like that little pirate he once was before his innocence was drowned. 

Bc can go from model ready for the cover of vanity fair, to hipster hanging out with friends, or to dad on casual day at the office. He is the man with a thousand looks and faces and all of them are beautiful and real. Bring on the age because I can’t wait to see how much more this man will drive us wild when he’s in his 60s!

His Humanity: All the things that I mentioned above, would not be possible if it wasn’t for Benedict’s humanity. He thinks and applies being altruistic in all that he does. He cares about his fans, he cares about the world, he cares about speaking out for those who don’t have a voice. His humanity is what generates through him to project and promote, togetherness, love and understanding. His humanity is what makes him the most attractive human being on this earth.

To be a member of the CumberCollective is something special. I don’t always follow the right path and I shoot my mouth off way too much,( I can’t help it, it’s who I am lol)  but that doesn’t mean I don’t care about my fellow human beings. It’s hard for somebody like me to care for people when people have been shitty to me my entire life, but Benedict makes me want remain on this planet and to be a member of this group of fans that are better than me, that can show me the way to try to be a better human being. I fail so much at that, but having friends in this fandom that practice that and get it right on a daily basis (like @elennemigo  and @sobeautifullyobsessed ) seeing Benedict interact with his fans at events or even on the street, these things matter to me and it helps me to see that the end of the day, even somebody like me, just might be…human :)

Thanks for stopping by!

I just want to get a little perspective for people hating on Zayn right now… All these years Louis, Liam, Niall and Harry shared links for charity events or gofoundme links so people could make donations for different causes. Anne and Jay did the same! And this fandom was always so happy to help by donating or just sharing the link to reach more people. But people are hating on Zayn for this same thing! He is out there sharing a link for his mom’s best friend. You don’t know how much he helped already, but they way people are being so gross about it is making me lose faith in this fandom. Seriously i’m ashamed for these people hating on Zayn… If you don’t want to donate, that’s fine. But it literally costs nothing to help spread the message and just share the link! 

if you think none of this applies to you - odds are you need to read it

you are not entitled to anything here

your role in fandom - whether it’s reader, consumer, writer, fan, etc. - is no excuse to disregard politeness for any reason

having people on your side is no excuse to be rude

feeling as though you’re right or being told you’re right is no excuse to be rude 

your preferences and opinions are no excuse to be rude

if somebody says you were rude it’s because they perceived it that way. taking a moment to reconsider how you said something and trying a different approach to attempt a resolution makes you look more mature

approaching your friends to let them know they might be acting rudely makes you look more mature

considering that you might have made a mistake makes you look more mature

people you like or are friends with still have the capacity to be rude and/or hurt others. remember that there are many sides to a conflict before you stand on one with a friend 

alienating people for disagreements makes you look immature and cliquey

if you really hate somebody for something they’ve said or done, try defeating them with kindness rather than anger 

HOW you say something matters just as much as WHAT you say. Everyone’s feelings are valid. There is no reason fandom has to be like high school.

I have a question for you.

She’s the infamous Skye. Not my Cynthia, just Skye, some random vixen in the zootopia artbook. Now, tell me: does she look like an arctic fox?

I can’t really understand a few things regarding this fandom: why do people think she’s is an arctic fox? Or why did some artists take this orange vixen and turned her into a damn arctic fox? Why is my poor Cynthia, an actual arctic fox, confused with a character who is NOT an arctic fox? Why people /dare/ to tell me things like: “they’re both arctic vixiens, that’s why we confuse them”?! Sometimes I want to kill the reddit userbase tbh, but then I think it’s my fault, because I try to argue with stupid people so it can’t be helped. But, seriously now, the true Skye, if she still exists somewhere in this fandom, is not an arctic fox. She looks more like a culpeo to me. But again, even if she isn’t a culpeo, she certainly is not an arctic fox. Just look at her, if you’ve got a pair of eyes by any chance… because sometimes people seem to just have a big mouth and nothing else…

Honestly, shutting down the Anons for two months after my personal little “drama” was one of the best decisions of my life in this fandom, it greatly helped my anxiety here.

anonymous asked:

HELP! So I've been an avid sterek shipper for the past 2 years and they are definitely my self-proclaimed OTP, but recently, I have begun to lose interest in it, and I'm sadly becoming numb to it... is there anything I can do to respark that love for them???

//Anon, I am sorry to hear that :( Sometimes, that happens. We move on, even from things we love. But if you want to respark your love, I will try to help. 

The main thing I do to keep my love alive is to separate the pairing from the fandom and the show. That helps me the most. I love Stiles and Derek. Sure, I love TW and the other characters, but the reason I’m obsessed with anything is Sterek. I love Derek’s stupid face and his grumpy eyebrows and his tough exterior and his soft yet resilient interior. I love Stiles’ stupid face and his beautiful eyes and his ramblings and his idgaf attitude unless he loves you, and you better watch out if he loves you bc he will burn down the WHOLE WORLD to protect you.

Maybe you need a good fic. When I get on a string of blah fics, I lose interest. But a good fic, that period where you are pulled in and you can’t stop reading about these two idiots falling in love for the 239802394th time…it’s magical. I can rec you fics if you want, fics that make me love the pairing. Or you can go trope hunting, which is what I do a lot. I want…historical! I want sports! I want coffeeshops! I want college! I want kids! I want deputies, prostitutes, slaves, amnesia, magic!stiles, human!derek, high school…there are so many possibilities. Find fics instead of relying on rec lists. Read outside of your comfort zone. I think sometimes ppl get stuck reading only what they like and don’t branch out and find new fics that can be exciting bc it’s different. I read two fics recently that are not usually my thing. One had a lot of pot smoking, the other was hate sex/enemies to lovers. Neither are my tropes and I usually avoid them. But they were recced to me highly, so I gave them a try. And I LOVED both of them. They were different than what I usually read, but it helped me get excited and think about the pairing in a different way. Read a long fic, esp if you avoid them. I avoid long fics a lot of times bc I’m a slow reader and have limited time. But some of the best fics I’ve read are over 100k. Read short fics. I don’t read much under 10k, but there are some great short fics that can give you a quick fix.

I guess where I find the most feels for Sterek is when I think about them together in ways I want to see. I write fic, so I do this a lot, but I have friends who don’t write fic who come up with ideas all the time. I just love thinking about Derek and Stiles’ lives, in so many different ways. 

Like, I like to think about them being domestic, coming home from long days at work and bickering over who didn’t do the dishes the night before and what to watch after dinner. Taking baths together and washing each other’s backs and pressing each other against slippery bathroom walls and dropping to their knees to blow each other right in the shower. Derek helping Stiles keep from getting too obsessed with anything and practice moderation, and Stiles helping Derek learn to open up and accept that he deserves good things, like a partner and a house and a Pack and a family. Waking up together and snuggling together, maybe lazy morning handjobs while they’re kissing and don’t even care about morning breath. Derek being there with Stiles in the hospital when his dad goes in for something, and Stiles going to Derek’s family’s plots to put flowers on their graves. Derek sitting in the car while Stiles goes to his mother’s grave and refusing to listen as Stiles talks to her. Stiles and Cora ganging up on Derek when they play board games, watch television, choose a restaurant, or do anything really, but Derek doesn’t mind bc he loves that Cora loves Stiles and just stares in awe as Stiles interacts with her like he’s known her his whole life. He thinks about how his mother and father would have loved Stiles, and how he wishes his family could have known him. He thinks about Stiles laughing with Laura and running through the woods with his human siblings, imagines his mom watching them with tears in her eyes bc she’s so happy for them. Stiles sometimes hovers in the doorway when Derek and his father are standing in the kitchen cooking together, or sitting on the back porch drinking beers, or sitting in the living room watching baseball games. Stiles knows that Derek can sense him, but Derek never lets on, just keeps talking to the sheriff. And Stiles can see the love and pride that the sheriff has in his eyes when he looks at Derek, and there was a time he thought he’d be jealous, but he’s not jealous, oh no. He’s so fucking happy because he loves Derek so much and Derek deserves someone to be a father figure, even though he knows it’ll never replace his own father. But he sees the way Derek almost craves the sheriff’s touch on his shoulder, his approval, the way Derek’s chest almost puffs up when the sheriff calls him “son” and the way Derek just lights up when the sheriff hugs him. He never thought his dad would accept Derek, but he’s adopted him like a second son. And they grow old together, get gray and get wrinkles, and they’re still sneaking off to blow each other in public bathrooms and pulling over on the side of the road for a quick handjob at 50 bc if anything, they’re more in love at 50 than at 25, and they’re both in such good places, with adopted kids and a strong Pack and it’s good, and Derek’s accepted it.

Or maybe Derek shows up in DC after Stiles moves there for school. He’s there bc he’s been making his way across the united states and now he’s stopping in DC, and he catches Stiles’ scent on the street and thinks, no, this can’t be Stiles. But he follows it one day, and sure enough, sitting at a table on the quad of a college campus, surrounded by stacks of books and clicking away on a laptop is Stiles. And Derek watches him like a creeper and feels something he can’t put into words- is maybe too scared to put into words - and then he leaves bc he doesn’t want to disrupt Stiles’ life. But Stiles, of course, befriends the wolves on campus and ends up at a full moon pack party and guess who is there? Derek fucking Hale, all long limbs and Henleys and scruff and Stiles is just fucking angry, but happy to actually see him, so he acts cool and sarcastic, and the other wolves are confused about what’s going on, which is to say NOTHING about the confusion Derek and Stiles feel, and they aggressively snipe at each other for weeks when they HAPPEN to cross paths (bc Derek just happens to go to the coffee shop and public library near campus, and Stiles just happens to pester his wolf friends to invite him to things) and after weeks of being sarcastic shits and angry at each other, Derek ends up pressed against the brick wall in a side street bc Stiles pushed him against it and just kisses him stupid and they’re pretty sure they would have rubbed off on each other right there against the brick wall if someone hadn’t said something as they walked by. But they end up kicking out Stiles’ roommate and fucking each other into the mattress and Stiles doesn’t even care when his roommate comes back and gets an eyefull of Derek’s glorious ass bc he just tapped that ass all night long.

But maybe you want to think about them in AUs, like Derek as a baseball player and Stiles the batting coach, and they spend hours together training and have sweaty sex in the locker room. Or maybe they’re both turn of the century lords in fancy houses who need to get married bc it’s their duties, but they’re in love with one another so they’re sneaking around at London balls just to have a moment to kiss each other or to hold hands. Or maybe Derek is a mermaid and Stiles is a marine biologist who saves him from a net he’s been caught in, and Derek is terrified of him, but Stiles is like “dude, I just want to observe you for science!” and they fall in love as Stiles learns about merpeople but he never betrays Derek’s confidence, even when Derek introduces him to all his merfamily and Stiles could change science forever.

You may be ready to move on. You may pick up a new fandom or love, but you can still love Sterek. My first otp was Harry/Ron from harry potter, and I still love them though I’m not as active in the fandom.I still read fic sometimes. I’ve currently been obsessed with Downton Abbey and took a sterek reading/writing break, but I plan on writing again soon. Sometimes we need a breather just to renew our love.

Most of all, just remember that you love that grumpy werewolf and that rambling human, and despite all their bickering, they love each other and care about each other and will protect each other.

About Portuguese (and Spanish) names

Most of the Hetalia fandom headcanons Spain and Portugal as brothers, just like the Portuguese and Spaniards do in real life. And in the great majority of cases, they give Portugal the same surnames as his brother Spain for his human name. While this is a perfectly reasonable move, there are a lot of misconceptions in the fandom regarding Portuguese and Spanish names. While I may not be that familiar with Spanish names, I am aware of what makes them different from Portuguese names, and that’s precisely what I’ll be discussing in this post.

First of all let’s take a look at Spain’s human name, Antonio Fernandez Carriedo. One given name, two surnames, a very commom model in Spain. However here some things about this name:

1) The father’s surname is actually Fernandez, not Carriedo

In Hispanic countries, the surname order is different than in Portugal and English-speaking countries. This means that if the child carries both of their parents’s surnames, their last name is actually their mother’s surname. However the child still signs with their father’s surname. This means that, when talking about Mr. Carriedo, you should be talking about Mr. Fernandez instead.
However, as before mentioned, Portugal follows the typical “father’s surname last” model. And we still sign with our father’s surname. This means that, while Spain’s father’s surname comes first in his human name, in Portugal’s case it should come last.

2) The surname Fernandez doesn’t exist in Portuguese

Or better yet, it does. But it’s spelt differently. It’s spelt Fernandes, not Fernandez. So if you’re giving Portugal the same surname as his brother, you should at least change the spelling. That way you have Mr. Fernandez and Mr. Fernandes. Same surname, but with Spanish and Portuguese spellings respectively, as it should be.

3) The surname Carriedo doesn’t really exist in Portuguese

There are some look-alike surnames, but there’s no real equivalent to the surname Carriedo in Portuguese. You can either just replace it with some other surname you like or even drop it as a whole, it’s your choice.

4) Most Portuguese names follow this model:

(First given name) (Second given name) (Mother’s surname) (Father’s surname)

This means that the average Portuguese person has 4 names. However this shouldn’t be a problem because names just like Spain’s human name are also very commom. There are also people with more names though they are getting rarer.

5) Surnames with an hyphen are extremely rare

It’s not every day you find a Portuguese person named Maria Reis-Nogueira, for example. An hyphen is very rare and you probably shouldn’t use it if you want an accurate Portuguese name. They exist, of course, but are very, VERY rare.

6) Be careful with your research.

Check the spelling. Is it Portuguese or Spanish? Is it European Portuguese or Brazillian Portuguese? If you’re struggling with these questions, then please send me an ask and I’ll help! If you have any other question you want answered about Portuguese names, send that too! I am here to help after all!

Hope things are a tad more clear now!
