In the old days man tried to catch a glimpse of the future in the strangest of ways. They locked themselves in dark rooms not partaking of food or drink. At the stroke of midnight they ventured out into the night through the woods where strange creatures roamed, to see if they would be happy, to see if they would be healthy, to see if they would live, to see if they would be loved.

holy shit is chris evans smoking in that LA pic?

Yes, anon, that’s very clearly Chris smoking.

I haven’t seen it on my dash (thank you to everyone I’m following for being awesome, I guess <3), but I’ve been told there’s apparently been some kind of freak out over this…

I’d like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that, while smoking *is* a bad habit and I absolutely don’t condone it (I’m a doctor, and my aunt died because of this last year), Chris is human.

For one, he might not even be a heavy smoker, might just be a social one or simply crave one cigarette here and there for whatever reason (my mom is like this, she can go months/years without smoking a single cigarette, but then one day suddenly really need one. Chris does have anxiety, and sometimes people find that smoking helps with that).

Secondly, even if he wanted to smoke a pack a day, that’s no one’s business but his? He’s a grown man, and a huge percentage of the population smokes. I get why people would be sad or concerned about his health, but thinking any less of him or reacting like the world is ending because of it is just ridiculous. 

We all have bad habits, we all do stupid shit some times. Celebrities aren’t any different, and we really need to stop holding them to impossible standards of perfection because they are human, and doing/saying something silly here and there doesn’t make them bad people.

So I guess what I’m trying to say is, so what if he smokes? It doesn’t make him any different, doesn’t change the considerate, selfless and beautiful person that he is, and it surely doesn’t affect me (or any of us) in any way, so I’m not going to judge him for it. (:

Sorry I got carried away, maybe you didn’t even mean this ask like that, but I just really needed to let this out. <3

Fandom is a wonderful thing. You can meet a lot of lovely people who share the same interests as you, thrive on each other’s creativity, and it can help you get through some really rough times.

The one thing about fandom, though, that no one ever talks about about because it goes against the nature of being a fan, is using escapism as a coping mechanism, which can often be—although not always—a detrimental thing. Everyone participates in healthy levels of escapism, of course…going to see a movie, watching a couple episodes on Netflix, spending a few hours playing video games, etc. But when you’re someone who suffers from depression or other mental illness or if you’re just going through some really sucky things in life, the temptation to take escapism beyond what’s healthy is a great one. Sometimes if the pain gets bad enough, all you want to do is bury it with a false sense of happiness. Escapism can easily become an addiction. And I don’t feel like that’s ever properly been addressed within fandom; naturally, none of us really want to talk about it because it’s the very thing we’re avoiding.

I think that’s what gets me the most about this new support network Jensen and Misha are starting up: it will open up an avenue within fandom that will allow fans to actually talk about their struggles and confront whatever they’re going through in real life instead of continuing to resort to escapism as a coping mechanism (or worse) and burying the pain even deeper. It’s actually something that’s been on my mind for a long time, this whole vicious cycle that escapism can be and how the deeper issues of depression, etc., go unaddressed because of it, and idk, I’m just absolutely floored that 1) they actually care enough to want to do this for the fans, and 2) I’ve never seen anything like this happen before in any fandom and it really needs to happen more often.

Because fandom should be a good thing.
