Quartet Night LIVE Evolution full report

Written by me who have short-term memory and is really biased to QN

(PLEASE TAKE ALL OF STUFFS WRITTEN HERE WITH GRAIN OF SALT; there’s no way i could remember all stuffs exactly at it was. I would be happy if you could just ‘take the feel’)

First of all, it was awesome. I can’t really describe how overwhelming it was. If you’ve watched any of utapri live before, i just want to say that for me this is the best utapri live i’ve seen so far. If you think 5th and 4th live was awesome, this was on different level. The hall was definitely too small for a group who got #1 weekly oricon and more than 100k sales (which was made up by hundred of cinemas live viewing), but it was really well-planned. Probably the most well-planned utapri live ever.

anonymous asked:

(part 1) ur gonna roast me for this but im legit curious why mafia AUs are so bad? im asking in a non confrontational way, i get it romanticizing mafia is wrong, but i also believe that 1)most mafia AUs are a really toned down type of mafia;2)they do make for some interesting kinds of dynamics with fanart and with fics; 3)in a fic specifically u can create your own world and call something mafia and still make it so they don't kill innocent people but only idk members of other gangs or sth

(part 2) plus theyre a way to put ur charas in a completely diff context and see what theyll do. i mean i dont believe that writing ships in a certain context (like mafia) equals romanticizing that context. mafia AUs arent even my fav things to read (in fact i almost never do), im sure many ppl romanticize it and i obvs dont agree with that but im just trying to udnerstand bc i believe fandoms are a way to explore things that we normally wouldnt.

I’m not gonna roast you don’t worry xD okay wait let me check if I replied to this already if yes I’m gonna c/p because it’s half past midnight otherwise I’ll just go at it again wait *checks tags* fff obviously I don’t have a general post but anyway pls read this after you’ve done with my post and then this which is also choke-full of links. plus for a (not nice) laugh: here. AH WAIT I FOUND THE POST.

okay, so, let’s have it out of the way: I have nothing against mob aus or crime aus. I have a problem against calling them mafia AUs because in the US mafia = organized crime at large, in Italy mafia = ACTUAL EXISTING ORGANIZATIONS THAT ARE ACTIVELY HARMFUL. now that I introduced the topic I’ll c/p you the reply I gave to another anon who while discussing the issue pointed out that most writers don’t even know Italian mafia is a thing, which is pretty much on the same discourse so…

*The thing is - in the US it might not be enough of a deal anymore and I honestly do get why people make the mafia = regular mobsters, since the mafia was the first foreign organized crime being exported to the US via italian immigrants (sorry if this sounds horrible in English but I just woke up and I still didn’t have coffee) so I understand that mafia became the umbrella term.But the thing is that - as you said, these people don’t even know that there’s a mafia in Italy anymore or where the word comes from.

 I’m going to link to italiansreclaimingitaly’s tag about the mafia and its perception outside Italy because they posted about this extensively and it’s an excellent resource, but meanwhile I’m gonna do a very short bullet point list and about the topic:

  • Mafia might not be a big deal in the US, but it still is here. We have the beauty of four different mafias (Cosa Nostra - the Sicilian one, camorra which is the one in Campania but has tendrils spread everywhere, the ‘ndrangheta which is in Calabria and the Sacra Corona Unita in Puglia) which are all active [especially camorra and 'ndrangheta] and whose actions have direct impact (negative) on our economy and on our society. Actually mafias are one of the main reasons we’re currently economically fucked up, and if I start talking about how mafia culture keeps some areas literally backwards I could talk about it for three months.
  • There are still people who are killed for standing up against them. These days the most prominent personality is Roberto Saviano who is a writer who dared to put together a book documenting minutely the way camorra works and he’s been living under protection for years by this point. Like, they want him dead because he wrote a book. And I’m sorta sure that he was talking about leaving Italy and going to the US after years of sticking with it here because he can’t take it anymore but I don’t know if it was a taken decision or if it’s still debating it.
  • It wasn’t even thirty years ago that we had the stragi di mafia - in english it’d be something like the mafia slaughters, basically around the beginning of the nineties there were a number of bombs planted by the mafia targeting people who were trying to oppose it including judges Falcone and Borsellino, actually the anniversary of Falcone’s death is like… tomorrow. And they’ve killed people for way longer than that. Here is a list of only Cosa Nostra victims including the ones from the eighties/nineties. And people are still dying because of it. The slaughters I’m referring to are just the ones in the nineties which are enough of a number.
  • They also perpetuate a culture where if you testify against your mafia-employed relatives you’ll be shunned forever. There are women who testified against their families and couldn’t see their children anymore never mind that they weren’t automatically considered a relative anymore the moment they sided against the mafia. Some people have committed suicide after becoming witnesses also because our police force/justice system can be terribly non-supportive in this kind of situation so they got left on their own. Never mind that back in the day - it was the beginning of the nineties? - I recall at least a particular story of - I think, correct me if I remember wrong but I can’t remember the names for the life of me - where this guy testified against the local mafia when he either used to work for them or was forced to pay them the pizzo and in retaliation his six-year old (or five? Anyway he had a son younger than ten for sure) got kidnapped, killed and thrown into acid to dispose of the body. That happened in what, 1993? 1994? It’s pretty much yesterday. And now the camorra is doing the same - there’s a list here of camorra victims among which accidental passerbys that got killed because they were in the way which I can tell just by glancing is not complete. And I’m not even going into the 'ndrangheta. That is to say, here mafia still kills people and cripples our country.

Now, I get that it’s a word, but the point was: let’s say that instead of the Italians the Japanese came to the US first and the umbrella word for organized crime was yakuza rather than mafia and let’s say yakuza was still what it was originally in Japan while in the US it stopped being a big deal and people write yakuza!AU instead of mafia AU. Let’s say someone Japanese gets angry at that and goes like 'listen the yakuza is a real deal it does this this this and that and it’s a plague in our country so can you please at least look it up before writing your fanfic’, which is what had happened way back then when this whole mafia and fanfic thing blew up. A bunch of people told us to get over it because it’s just a word and if it’s a problem in Italy it’s not in the US so why should they care? Now, if we had been Japanese (or Chinese or Russian or Mexican) would they have said the same thing? Considering the general tumblr attitude I’m pretty sure they would have received either an apology or 'this is an important deal let’s keep that in mind’ with signal boost reblogs and stuff. 

It’s the fact that we should get over people not knowing that it’s still a real problem for us and that they can’t take five seconds to google it that is the problem imo. Especially when instead of mafia au you can just say mobsters au or tag it as organized crime and everyone is a lot happier, mostly because as the tag above explains romanticising the mafia is a good thing for them because it means they can act outside Italy with less stigma because everyone thinks that the mafia is dead or not relevant anymore, if I’m explaining myself. (And it’s active outside Italy - like, there was a mafia kill in Germany in 2007 where six people died (sorry the link is in Italian but there isn’t an English wiki page, if you look the city up you’ll find something probably) and it was because of the 'ndrangheta.

I’d really like to not get worked over it because it meant it was a thing of the past y'know, but the problem is that it isn’t and I’d rather spread some awareness in hope some of these writers look it up (because it’s a good thing that people know what mafia is since as stated they have tendrils everywhere - if you read Saviano’s book the entire first chapter is about how camorra regularly deals with Chinese import/export in Italy for one) than shrug and figure that since they’ll think everything is good for fanfic then it’s not even worth my time.*

Now, ^^^ that was the c/p-ed reply that should answer most of your doubts. What I didn’t address was:

im sure many ppl romanticize it and i obvs dont agree with that but im just trying to udnerstand bc i believe fandoms are a way to explore things that we normally wouldnt.

aaaand as we say here in Italy, this is where the donkey falls (sorry we have weird sayings), because in theory there’s nothing wrong with that… except that in 99% of the mafia aus I’ve seen around the thing is that they’re supposed to be cute.

like, I see a lot of shit with TINY MAFIA BOSS STEVE ROGERS with RUSSIAN ENFORCER BUCKY (????? bucky isn’t even russian???) and the yoi thing I saw before had the japanese character being the leader of a russian mafia gang which is… like… guys it doesn’t happen it really doesn’t, and a lot of them re-use wrongly terminology taken from the godfather without context or knowing what the hell it means, and it’s always from the criminals’ pov and they’re somehow seen as criminals doing justice where the police can’t (???) and like… no. mafia bosses/enforcers/employees are bad people period, and at least here if you try to leave or repent they kill your family in retribution. like, not even ten years ago there’s been a woman who used to belong to a mafia family (or one colluded with the mafia) who testified and her entire town/family shunned her and she couldn’t take it anymore and… killed herself drinking acid if I don’t recall wrong. it’s not even special cases. this shit is not funny, it’s not cute, it’s not adorable and it’s not good fodder for your imagine your otp scenario (srsly I saw one like.. let me find it,

LIKE. just look at this shit. in a regular context, the enforcer goes to the show owner to force them to pay a monthly sum to their boss lest they destroy their shop and their lives and their family’s life never mind that mafia culture is deeply homophobic so the mafia enforcer flirting with the shopkeeper is like completely fucking out of the question. I mean, people here like to shit on the sopranos but that show was actually excellent representation of Horrid Criminals Who Were Never Supposed To Be Good People and the small arc that happened when one of tony’s friends turned out to be gay (closeted) was REALLY well done. btw, it ended that when they found out he was gay most of the crowd rejected him and thought badly of him until I think they killed him also for other reasons, but that spiraled from finding out he liked dick. and that’s american mafia that they actually based on well-done research of the culture in Italy it came from, I assure you that here it doesn’t work that differently. like. the shit above is so inaccurate and frankly offensive, it’s like… I get people romanticizing problematic stuff but the thing is that when you tell them that it’s actually offensive you get brushed off as ‘ah well you’re being too sensitive it’s just a word u__u’. now, I’m all for exploring shit we wouldn’t be into, but not like THAT, because that’s like mafia romantic comedy and that’s not how it works. now, you wanna do a fic where the mafia characters are deeply flawed and bad people and the police tries to catch them? fine, great, go ahead. you wanna do a fic where the enforcer above deals with dunno an entire life of internalized homophobia when he finds the shopkeeper attractive and feels conflicted over having to con money out of him and doing horrible shit for a living and maybe understanding that crime isn’t worth it and then he actually collaborates with the police and gets shit from about everyone he knows and loves for that? okay, awesome, go ahead. nothing bad in that.

but the shit above is not exploring things we wouldn’t/writing darkfic, it’s THINKING THAT A CRIMINAL ORGANIZATION WHICH IS STILL A THING IN OUR PART OF THE WORLD IS CUTE AND ADORABLE. and that only plays in their favor because it takes the bad aura out of the word and we really should not let that happen. like. that is what is bad about mafia aus and mafia discourse, that people don’t realize the mafia is alive and well and thriving and not a thing that doesn’t exist or a generic word for organized crime.

you wanna write the shit above? okay, CALL IT CRIME AU or mob au, not mafia au.

btw, add-on: idk if I mentioned it in the above post or not, but in case I didn’t, I said that people would balk at the idea of a mexican cartel au. sadly since then I’ve found out a fandom where not only there is one but it’s also extra cutesy and people apparently love it and it has a bunch of kudos/comments and idek I’m not even touching that with a ten foot pole but like… I’ve avoided it and everything that author wrote because to me it’s just… nope. like, nope. if you do mafia aus don’t make them fucking cute. (also: in the same fandom I had to mute a v. famous fanartist whose art I actually liked but did cutesy mafia aus and.. like… haahahhaahahahahaha nah sorry. can’t go there. nope.)

ok so this took approximately six hundred years to put together but i present, for your enjoyment, my star wars fic rec, including: stormpilot fic recs, hanluke fic recs, jedistormpilot fic recs and various gen fics/one shot pairings. i’ve been around fandom for a loooooong time so i’ve developed a habit of being picky with my fics so rest assured that everything included in this list comes with a big ol’ stamp of approval

this list will be added to/edited in the future as the fandom grows, so if ur fic isn’t on here don’t despair, and if any of you want to suggest fics to be added then go ahead, my ask box is always open! (UPDATED: 4TH APRIL, 2016)

stormpilot has the most fics in this rec but feel free to peruse the rest (the stormpilot recs are last, so scroll all the way dowwwwwn if u want those), and i hope u enjoy! (side note: i put stars next to the fics i REALLY love so those ones come with my super special recommendations)

anonymous asked:

I have a kind of specific request, I just really think this idea is cute. Bokuto develops this crush on a girl who volunteers/works at a conservatory with the Birds of Prey. Like she catalogues the injuries and helps with rehabilitation, but also handles/ trains education birds that can't be released. Like Bo finds her really cute with her khaki button up and an owl on her arm, and he always finds a reason to see her. Idk, maybe she doesn't know his name but remembers his stunning owl eyes.

//I have a friend who actually looks after animals esp with birds of prey. The owl is based on a true owl. In this scenario I’m actually gonna have him be a volunteer too. Also fyi owls eat dead babu chicks so I guess forewarning on that?

Crush.

More like crush my heart, though a young teenage boy. Instead of sweeping out the emergency zone, he pondered to himself and chatted to the sickly animals who cooed lightly in response. Every time Sunday rolled around, Bokuto Koutarou would be unable to contain his excitement. He would sweep his mother into his arms for a hug, being ever so loving. He would give his father a super on purpose big sloppy kiss on the cheek and he would be out of the house. Every Sunday (and when he’s free), he volunteers for an animal conservatory which specialises of Birds of Prey. At the beginning he was interested in the owls, which he still is, but there was a certain specimen he was interested in. The moment he laid his eyes on her, he couldn’t help but adore her. (Name) was in charge usually, since she lives right around the corner. She’s around his age and also a volunteer, but she came in more often than he did.

Sauntering in with a big smile on his face, he would greet the others and especially (Name). Of course he had never introduced himself properly, he just presumed his nature would be infectious… However, it wasn’t the case for (Name). Today a simple sentence that took the spirits right out of him.

“Sorry, what’s your name again?”

The words echoed in his mind while he attempted to clean out the small shed. The owls continued to coo at him while he felt sorry for himself. He sighed for what felt like the hundredth time, feeling his happiness fly out of the window. Eventually he had the whole place cleaned out, including the cages. Feeling better and very proud of how clean everything was, he went to stroke one of the birds again.

“Hiya buddy. How’re you doing today? Feeling any better?”

Just as the words left his mouth, the door opened slowly. (Name) poked her head in, gently opening the door some more. She closed the door and began inspecting the little ones. A blush tainted his face as he couldn’t find the words to speak to her. After all, he would never have thought after what she said, they would be here… Together… Alone. Together.

“Nice work,”

(Name) observed, looking around the small enclosure,

“Never thought that this place would ever be this clean.”

“Ah yeah! I worked hard”

“Yeah, you did.”

Silence continued. Koutarou struggled to form sentences, trying to initiate a conversation was harder than expected. He watched her quietly whisper to the owls who answered her back with their light tweets.

“Soon these guys should be able to go back into the wild. Luckily they’ve only got small sprains.”

More silence, more blushing. With an awkward laugh, Koutarou agreed. He shifted around uncomfortably, still not finding a subject to talk to her about.

“I, uh. S-since I’m finished with this, do you want any help or anything else done?”

“Hm… Yeah I will need help. Have you ever fed them?”

“Uh nope. Usually I help clean their cages and stuff.”

“Well today’s your unlucky day.”

(Name) ushered him out and they put on some clean gloves. Curious, Koutarou noticed she was talking more, probably to help him with his sudden inability to start conversations. She talked about how she was excited to release some of the birds, what work she has left and her favourites. The whole time he just nodded and smiled at her, admiring how passionate she was. Also how adorable she was in her cute work outfit, even though it was probably just old clothes she suited it to a T. Snapping out of his daydream of how cute she was, she shoved a bucket in his hands.

“What”

He looked into the bucket and his stomach flipped. Little dead baby chicks.

“What”

He repeated, not even hiding his disgust. (Name) giggled a little, enjoying his initial shock.

“I told you it was your unlucky day”

As they walked to each of the enclosures and cages, she explained what the owls ate and how they fed them. She doesn’t usually let volunteers help feed them, but today was an exception since not many people showed up.

“Anyway, everyone is easy to feed, since most are sleeping… But the biggest problem is the ones at the back, especially Erberus. You cannot turn your back on him, like one bit. Which makes it hard to feed him obviously.”

“What do you mean?”

“I mean if you turn your back on him, he will attack.”

“What? Are you serious? How are you going to feed him?”

“I’ll explain soon, but for now let’s feed the easier ones”

With that, Koutarou found it easier to be himself. As he thought before, (Name) was a good person. She kept the conversation flowing, she felt warm and she was in tune with his humour. His heart felt like it made leaps today and he couldn’t help but feel like pumping the air with happiness.

“Okay here we are,”

(Name) said with her hands on her hips,

“What we’re going to do is walk back to back. I’ll go in and leave some chicks on the table as per usual, but you will keep ahold of me and walk us back. Get it?”

“Yup!”

He replied happily. But what he didn’t expect was how nerve wrecking it actually was. It really wasn’t about the owl, but it was how close they were. Their backs pressed together and holding each other’s hands, something that Koutarou would never have predicted. Part of the experience it was really embarrassing but he enjoyed it, the other part made him sad that it happened so quickly.

As they neared the gate, Koutarou tripped, accidentally pulling (Name) along with him. He stopped himself from falling flat on his face and caught (Name) by the waist, making sure she doesn’t fall as well. For a second they both stared at each other, until they both realised she was still in his arms. Then they heard Erberus, who had been staring at them the entire time. He had his wings raised as if he was ready to pounce. Scurrying out through the gate and locking it, they both sighed in relief. Then they burst out laughing.

As they quietened down, (Name) thanked Koutarou.

“Thanks, it’s always difficult to deal with him.”

“It’s no problem, I’d love to help out again”

“Well… Uh, I’ll take you up on that offer. But first, what’s your name?”

Koutarou felt his heart and confidence deflate. After all this time, he thought, thinking that there was something positive coming from this experience. (Name) continued, realising how awful she sounded,

“I mean, I never caught your name. I just always referred to you as Big Erberus… Mainly because you’s both have very similar eyes and your hair reminds me of his feathers.”

“You… Noticed me?”

“Of course, but I’m sorry. I’m awful with names.”

“Bokuto Koutarou, I hope you’ll remember me this time”

“I know I will this time”

(Name) excused herself and said she would see him back at the office area, Koutarou lingered on the thought of her. Finally, by himself, he began to whoop and cheer fist pumping the air and just being all round happy. Then he turned around to face Erberus who leered at him, the golden owl eyes glaring. Koutarou beamed at the animal and thanked it for having a horrible personality.

“Are you okay?”

(Name) said, suddenly appearing behind him.

“W-What?”

His face turned tomato red, unsure of how to explain the situation to her. She giggled as she dragged him back, telling him not to spook the animals with his cheers anymore.

Abazethe100 - Trailer Analysis, Speculation, Theories, and Predictions for The 100 Season 4

All right, here is my trailer analysis and speculation post for season 4. 

Keep the following in mind:

1. I’m a Bellarke shipper, but I don’t get too extra about it, so it’s safe for all shippers. 

2. If I’m right about some of my theories/speculations, then this post could be a HUGE spoiler. If I’m right, you might end up getting disappointed if my speculations come true. Proceed at your own risk. 

3. The biggest problems with speculating from trailers is that we often have to fill-in the blanks ourselves (making assumptions when we probably shouldn’t) and we have to take out frames and attempt to fit them together like a puzzle. But, this trailer is only 25 pieces of the 1000 piece puzzle that this season will eventually be, so if even one or two of my puzzle pieces are in the wrong place… my speculations fall apart a little. Therefore, please, understand that this is MY analysis and it is NOT foolproof. I’m going to bet that at least half of it is true and the other half is not true or only half true. REMEMBER THAT. 

Note: I divided my analysis up by character arcs and/or subplots. It made it easier to put the pieces together. 

Otherwise, enjoy. Let me know what you think. I might revise it once I’ve had time to think more about it or once we get more clues. 

Much love,

abazethe100

@foreverautumnblog‘s Blunt Eye Doctor Levi (and Unfortunate Victim Eren)

Eren doesn’t know how eye doctor visits usually go, but he’s fairly certain they don’t typically include gazing into each other’s eyes.

“Um, is this part of the process?” Eren asks when the optometrist, Dr. Levi, takes his face into his hands and peers down at him with such an intense gaze that Eren can’t help squirming a little in his seat. He actually can’t move.

“This is completely necessary,” Levi assures him, dead serious. He tilts Eren’s face back, rubbing at Eren’s skin, to the point of like a deep tissue massage. Eren’s heart beats wildly through his ribcage, bordering on a heart attack which would be yet another inconvenient health problem for him, especially now that Dr. Levi almost has a knee up on his chair in the space between Eren’s thighs. Still staring. There’s a sweet scent—that of fruity shampoo that wafts from Levi’s body standing so close. Eren thinks this might be some sort of personal space violation.

“Um!” Eren says, high-pitched.

“Shh.”

Whenever Eren’s gaze drifts to the side, mostly because he just can’t take the amount of staring anymore, Levi orders his gaze back at him or else they’ll have to start the process all over again. What process? What are they doing? Is this really how one gets their eyes checked? Don’t they need some sort of machines? Eren’s eyes begin to water. He doesn’t know if he’s allowed to blink.

“Okay, I guess we’re done,” Levi finally says, letting him go.

Eren coughs. “You guess?!”

“Now we can start the process of checking your eyesight.” Levi begins putting up a rolled up paper chart on the opposite wall filled with… actually, Eren’s not quite sure what it’s filled with.

“What were we doing just a moment ago, then?” Eren slaps at his face a little because his cheeks still feel hot from earlier. Levi’s touch lingers like a scalding iron on skin.

“We were checking your eyeballs for damage. Now, can we please get a move on?” With some sort of long pointer stick, Levi points at the first letter on top of the pyramid. “What letter is this?” he quizzes.

“Uh,” Eren interrupts. “You know, I’m only here to get a new pair of glasses because my other ones were crooked. I already have my prescription and everything.”

“Those glasses looked like shit on you, anyway.”

“What!”

Dr. Levi lets out a sharp breath, collapsing his stick and throwing it to the side. He shrugs out of his white doctor’s coat to hang on the back of his desk chair, as well. “Alright, we can skip the foreplay then if that’s what you want.”

“What—!” Eren exclaims again, wondering what on Earth is going to happen now. He backs up a little into his chair.

“You know…” Levi goes around to sit at the edge of his desk, rolling the sleeves of his black sweater up to his elbows for added effect. What effect is that? Eren doesn’t know. “I got laser eye surgery. You should consider it,” Levi tells him as he points at his glasses-less eyes.

Eren frowns, even as his breath hitches just a bit when Levi leans casually on his desk. “I thought about it… but in the end I don’t want to be sticking lasers in my eye.” Eren’s perfectly fine living with his glasses. If only he could actually get another pair because anything beyond Levi sitting two feet away is completely fuzzy.

“Because you look cute without your glasses,” Levi says with a deadpan expression. “You have nice eyes,” he adds.

There’s an awkward silence in the room as he says that while Eren fiddles with the sleeve of his shirt. Some stray pens and papers from Levi’s desk fall to the floor. “O-Oh?? Okay, thanks…” Eren trails off, unsure of where to proceed from here.

He blinks rapidly, as if that would clear the fog from his brain as much as it clears his vision. It’s unsuccessful on both ends as Eren starts to think his rapid blinking might now be misconstrued as flirting. Crap, what should he do now… This isn’t how he’d expected this appointment to go. 

Maybe he should compliment Levi’s eyes as well. That’s only polite, right? “You… You also have…” Eren gulps thickly, starting again. “Your eyes are also very—”

“Anyway, let’s go pick out some frames for you.”

“…Okay.”

anonymous asked:

Okay so i'm a 'larrie' i guess (i hate the term), and i'll be the first to tell you there are a lot of obnouxious and downright mean people in that part of the fandom - particulary the more famous ones - who are the voices most people hear. I don't follow any of the big ones, but i DO follow a lot of larryblogs and there are so many chill, loving, non-drama people, who ship them, but also respect them and their lives! It's sad that a few loud blogs ruins the reputation for all of us

I’m sorry, please don’t get mad at me and come at me for what I’m about to say. Maybe most of them are chill and nice people. Maybe they just want to feel included. A sense of feeling like they belong somewhere on the internet. Being a part of a community. A lot of these fans are really really young and are still learning, that could be one reason too. Some people are maybe struggling with their own labels and seek comfort… Some fans may have bad home lives, or get bullied, or have bad relationships with their friends or family, idk what lies beneath the surface…Some fans are maybe just having fun with it. But when somebody says to you “my sexuality is this”, and if you go against that and think they’re lying or hiding because of management or whatever your reasoning may be, then you’re being disrespectful. Point blank. You’re not respecting their lives by doing that, at all, and there’s nothing you can say that alters that fact. You’re supposed to respect what someone has said about their sexuality and identity, whatever has been said. Whatever has been shown. Speculating, assuming or forcing a sexuality and/or a relationship onto somebody else for your personal belief, enjoyment or “want” is not okay. A ‘no’ is a no. They’ve both said it. Respect that word, because it’s a powerful one. It’s a topic that’s literally none of your business to begin with, and it’s so invasive to get caught up in it. Oh, and taking advantage of someone’s show of respect and HUMANITY for the lgbqt community and twisting it to fit your own wishes isn’t okay either. It’s got nothing to do with you. Open your eyes outside of the “tumblr life” and see that. 

And the larry side of the shipping fandom has turned into a cult. We’ve seen this by now… They’ve ruined relationships and friendships. It’s based on lies. Bullshit. Ignorance. I haven’t seen more manipulation and incorrect information going around than I see with the larries. It boggles my mind, and it’s so frustrating to see people consuming false information… To see people being so unabashedly uncritical of the sources. And there’s SO much bullying, and HATE on social media from them. To girls, to their friends, family, everybody who are in their lives to some capacity. So many people have had to defend themselves, and it’s not fair. It’s just incredibly embarrassing and sad to see, and it makes my skin crawl seeing fans being so mean to others. But it’s become lifestyle maintenance by now or something, ‘cause I refuse to believe that there are so many people who genuinely still believe in it and who are that disrespectful and uncivil to the boys and their circle of friends/family/girlfriends++. (I’m not saying you’re all like this, I’m speaking in general terms.)

It’s not about me, and I couldn’t care less, but if I get sent hate, it’s 99% from a larry shipper. That says something too… And I’m sorry you’re indirectly associated with all of the aforementioned. I personally could never cope, but do you. Anyways, I’m not answering more questions about this, let’s leave it. Just answering this question feels disrespectful tbh… I wanna stay out of it. I’m gonna continue to follow Harry’s lead and focus on the fun stuff and my own shit in life and to not take this side of the fandom seriously. Harry is doing wonderfully and is happy as ever and that’s all that matters, isn’t it :)
