To be honest, I need someone who will understand me when I talk about BoM fanfictions. I’ve probably dug through the whole archive and made like two fanfiction lists.
I’d probably cry when I heard the word “Soul-Eater”, or maybe feel so giddy when I see two men on a roof fixing the roof, or I’d scream when someone climbs a tree and punch their nose… Also, the words “Turn It Off” has a much sadder meaning in the fanfiction world. Or maybe someone knows which fanfiction I mean when I say “Skin Stars”. And somehow, I remember the end of some certain fanfiction: “Quietly, wordlessly, he does.” (or something like that). And is anyone crying at the fact the fifty chapter post canon college fic is not complete.
I wonder how many people would get what I just typed, or which fanfictions I referenced.
Hello!! I don't want to be rude or anything, but is it hard sometimes to understand ohms videos since English isn't your first language, Sorry if it makes you uncomfortable!
Yeah, since English is not my first language so I do not really understand what did you mean. But I have to say that watching their videos make my speaking more better that before. And also “make” me have to learn English more harder. And sometimes I really don’t understand what are they talking about like some jokes or some words I don’t know what’s that. But every times I hear his cutie, sweet laugh. Anything is worth. (ﾉ∀`♥)
Out of curiosity, is there anything specific that led to that Beast Wars comment, or is it just Hasbro's treatment of it in general?
Not really, just casual observation and random thoughts on past fictions.
Hasbro by and large isn’t doing anything with BW right now, which is a different grumble, so it doesn’t really have much to do with them.
It’s the licensees that are endlessly shackling G1 to BW’s wrists, neck and ankles. Usually trying to write absolutely needless “bridger” stories between BW and some specific G1, cramming more 1980′s characters into the cast, etc etc. And in the rare instance they aren’t doing that, they’re wedging things into the rather tight show timeline, which is an only marginally less annoying “use the past like a crutch” move.
I mean, say what you want about BWII and BW Neo’s qualities or lack thereof, but at least they told their own stories in their own series with only glancing nods to past stuff, like the original BW did.
do you agree with the bts hp housings by namjoon? slytherin jimin and ravenclaw jungkook weren't a surprise for me. strangely enough I wonder how tae's sneaky ass made it into hufflepuff I mean dedication?(I'm not saying he's not dedicated but he rarely finishes things, he's stubborn but his interest tends to fizzle out quickly) patience?? fair play??? at least he's loyal.
Heey, anon! :) I’ll post the screen so people that haven’t seen it know what we’re talking about (and also a read more ‘cause bitch can talk):
No offense, but you're seriously just a fake white ally. How dare you reblog that post when you're one of the people who keep complaining about everything? Just stay in your lane.
There are several things that confuse me in this ask.
First the “no offense” when, I think, offence is meant? Since the ask is aggressive.
Then the “fake white ally”. I try to avoid using the word “ally” for myself because it’s cringey and means little to nothing. I’ll redirect to a great article here. So I understand that you mean to say that I’m not being a good support, but I want to make it clear I do not use the word “ally” for myself. I try to support minorities I am not a part of while not invading their spaces as much as I can. I am not infallible. I am sorry if I made a mistake that hurt people.
I’m not sure how I offended? I reblogged a post I was mostly agreeing with, while adding tags to try and clarify my position. I said I did not wish to invalidate anyone’s feelings especially not the people’s this season is representing in one form or another. That people’s feelings were valid. I was expressing my feelings towards a certain part of the fandom (which is mostly white, from what I can tell) and how I interpreted their behaviour and how I felt it came from a place of misconceptions and black&white thinking.
Finally: “you’re one of the people who keep complaining about everything”. There are two things I do not understand in this statement. First, that you seem to (in most of your statement) want to defend people who “complain about everything”. You’re coming at me for saying that I was sad that a lot of people seemed to try and find only faults to the show without taking nuances into account (which is not to go against being critical, I am critical myself, and Muslim fans have a lot to be critical about, especially since they rarely get representation). You’re coming at me for saying I was sad that some folks seemed to “complain about everything”. So it seems that you’re defending said folks. But then you put me down for, once again, “complaining about everything”.
So which are you for (or against)? People who “complain about everything” or the rest? I’m confused.
And please explain where I have been “complaining about everything”. I don’t think I have since I like this season and spend a lot of time analysing it, but maybe I’m wrong. Please show me.
“I can’t even say the word. Why can’t I say the word? I mean, why can’t I just say…? I mean, what is wrong? Why do I have to be so ashamed? I mean, why can’t I just say the truth? I mean, be who I am? I’m thirty-five years old, I’m so afraid to tell people…Susan, I’m gay.” – Ellen Morgan (@theellenshow) to Susan (@lauradern), “Ellen,” “The Puppy Episode,” April 30, 1997.
On April 30, 1997, twenty years ago today and two weeks after Ellen DeGeneres publicly acknowledged her sexuality, Ellen Morgan, lead character of ABC’s “Ellen,” came out.
After the first three seasons of “Ellen,” producers were frustrated with a lack of focus and Ellen’s lack of interest in the stereotypical sitcom relationship; one producer suggested Ellen just get a puppy to show the world that a relationship was not in the cards, hence “The Puppy Episode.”
During the fourth season, as word of the coming out episode spread, a backlash started; a bomb threat came, DeGeneres’ safety was threatened, sponsors (including J.C. Penney and Wendy’s) pulled out, affiliates refused to run the episode, and right-wing conservatives hurled anti-gay slurs (Reverend Jerry Falwell, for example, hurled the infamous “Ellen Degenerate,” to which DeGeneres responded, “I’ve been getting that since the fourth grade”).
And, even after “The Puppy Episode” drew forty-two million viewers and won two Emmys, a Peabody Award, and a GLAAD Media Award, ABC still prefaced each subsequent episode of "Ellen” with a parental advisory warning.
The show was canceled after its fifth season.
“It’s easy to forget now, when we’ve come so far,” President Barack Obama said when awarding DeGeneres the Presidential Medal of Freedom, “just how much courage was required for Ellen to come out…What an incredible burden that was to bear. To risk your career like that. People don’t do that very often.”
There is no question that Ellen Morgan’s self-declaration marked a paradigm shift for queer representation in media. Never again would it be impossible to imagine a gay lead character, nor a supporting character that defied rigid stereotypes, in mainstream media. #lgbthistory #HavePrideInHistory #ThankYouEllen

episode one :: Yuuri Katsuki is the most beautiful disaster that Victor has ever met in his entire life, and Victor has built his empire on beautiful disasters.
Victor isn’t sure he knows what he’s doing anymore by the time casting rolls around for season 22 of The Bachelor. Okay, he knows what he’s doing, but it’s all autopilot. He’s got a dossier of Chip Vanderbones and Tad Hardbeefs to look at, but is almost resigned enough to just give into Lilia and Yakov’s suggestion to cast Georgi Popovich, notorious histrionic Bachelorette season 10 runner-up, as this season’s lead out of sheer notgivingafuckness. At this point Victor isn’t even sure whether he really wants to be in this game at all anymore, but what the hell else he would do besides sleep for a thousand years if he retired before thirty?
And then Phichit Chulanont comes into his office to distract him during a conference call with Yakov to tell him a story about his friend who just crashed and burned at the Figure Skating Grand Prix Finals, and everything click click clicks into place: redemption narrative. Twenty young men are going for the gold, but only one can win the heart of Yuuri Katsuki– he can hear the promos, see the character arcs unfold, and the narratives rush through him like they’ve always lived inside him and it feels–exciting.
“Phichit,” Victor says suddenly, interrupting Phichit and grabbing him from across his desk. “We have to get him. He’s our next bachelor.”
“Oh my God,” Phichit replies, eyes widening, and then again, “Oh my God.”
“Do you think you could get him?” Victor asks. He’s seeing figure skating dates, thematic destination shoots in Chile and Finland and Iceland, “The Bachelor: Love on Ice” title screen flashing over two champagne glasses on the lip of an outdoor hot tub.
“Do I think I can get him,” Phichit repeats dismissively, looking the closest to offended that Victor has ever seen him. “What do you think you hired me for, Nikiforov.”
