is it weird that i kind of ship them

Hey pals. Apparently this is a thing that we, as an internet femslash community, need, so it is time for Grouchy Aunt J’s Guide To Fandom Deportment.

1. I know that you really like your favourite actors, especially the ones involved in your fave wlw ships. I totally understand this! They are pretty, and wlw fandom is really fun, and if your ship is also a canon ship then it is super exciting and validating to see yourself reflected in media that you love. I, too, love that feeling and get really passionate about the media that I watch, which is why I am a Fandom Old.

2. The actors in your favourite ships are people. Like, real people, with anxieties and food preferences and sometimes they have weird hair days and some of them are introverted and some of them are extroverted, etc etc etc. When they are acting in your favourite media, they are going to work.

3. Part of an actor’s job these days is to sometimes be around on social media. Sometimes not! If they are kind/friendly/available on social media, that is a fun perk of someone who is going the extra mile for their job. You are not entitled to this.

4. Even if you super like a ship and are really passionate about fandom, there are things it is not alright to do. Actors are people, and when fans start treating them poorly it is unkind and potentially frightening or traumatic. Plus, your behaviour reflects badly on all fans and means that fandom as a whole doesn’t get to have nice things anymore. (Thanks, jerks.)

5. It is never okay to:

  • harass actors on social media because something about their character is interfering with your ship/they’re not supporting your ship enough/they’re supporting the wrong ship too much/their character is problematic/the ship you think their ship is better than is problematic/just whatever please stop it this is not their problem. Tweeting at them will not fix whatever is upsetting you on the show you like, but it is probably pretty hurtful for them and not something they should have to put up with.
  • harass/question actors who are involved in queer ships about their sexuality in public spaces. People’s sexuality is private, and being involved in portraying a queer canon or subtext ship doesn’t give fans the right to know about an actor’s queerness or lack thereof unless they choose to volunteer that.
  • tell actors on social media about any sexual fantasies you may or may not have about them, b/c sexual consent also applies to actors.
  • send actors unsolicited links to/hand bound novellas/lovingly hand-lettered scrolls of fanfiction, especially smutty fanfiction, especially especially if that author is not aware that their fic is getting sent to actors inappropriately.
  • send actors your nsfw fanart about them, or someone else’s nsfw fanart about them, oh my g o d.
  • ask them to read your fanfiction or autograph your fanfiction, damn.

5a. A good rule of thumb is to ask yourself: would I, or another a reasonable person, want to see this [insert fanwork of varying levels of nsfw] about a representation of myself/themselves? Most actors are actual people who find this just as upsetting as you might find it, if someone drew fanart of you and then brought it to your workplace.

5b. Yes, I know, there is a certain amount of distance involved in creating fanworks because they are about fictional characters and that storytelling and play is one of the things I love about fandom. But I also never, under any circumstances, would want any of the actors involved in my ships to read my fanfiction because it would be super uncomfortable and that’s the point

6. Also, your favourite actor’s non-actor family and friends are just that: not actors. Don’t bother them. Don’t - hypothetically - stalk them and try to catfish them to get information about your favourite actor. It’s super super not okay and it’s a huge boundary violation.

In conclusion: social media is super great and has changed fandom in a lot of neat ways, but having cool TV and movie actors available to connect with in that way is a privilege, not a right. Let’s all act like we are worthy of it.

I love your texts so much!! They give me my daily dose of love from my fav ship, and their crew!!! I'd love to see a Keith and lance messaging about their last night together, where maybe they had like a Netflix and chill that went too far. And Keith is like asking lance if things would be weird between them, and if he liked it. And lance is nervous and super cute about the whole thing saying how glad he was they spent the night together. I hope you understand. Love youuu 😍😍

i freaking loved this request and i love you lmao!! i hope this is kind of what you were going for!! 💜

my god i’m definitely writing a fic about this someday

puffyball13  asked:

I loved billdip for a long time but often other fans of gravity falls said mean and rude things about it and to those who ship it? As a fellow shipper, I ask for your wisdom to tell me why?

Hello sweetheart, I’m sorry for taking so long to reply you.

For your question, I pretty much don’t want to discuss about this publicly but I think it would be better if I say it out one more time. 

As much as I hate to admit this but BillDip is neither the most popular ship AND the most hated ship in this fandom, the reason can be summarized in one word: pedophilia - which stands for a relationship between an adult with a child. Others reasons is about abusive relationship or some sort.

If you ever want an advice from me, let me tell you one thing, that is certainly important to remember if you ever see someone harrassing the ship again: they are fictional characters. None of the thing we artists/authors draw/write are real, it’s just our own imaginations. 

Sure when I say this some of you might wonder: “Then it’s okay to ship pedophilia with fictional characters because it’s your imagination?”. If I answer this in my very opinion, I’m the kind who would like to build a proper relationship for the couple I like so I can avoid all the bad things happen to them, but if I answer this in the role of all BillDip shippers, I must say yes and no, cause we all people and we have weird tastes in something sometimes but that not mean we support/are that kind in real life, fiction and real life are really, really different, please remember. It’s like watching some Disney movie which make you wondering “How the heck can two characters fall in love in like one day?”, but yet you still ship them. Yeah, that’s pretty much it mate, fiction don’t happen in real life. 

So if someone don’t like the ship please just move on, this fandom is not about us shippers so don’t pull the rage to you by yourself just because you don’t like it or want people to stop shipping it, trust me, they won’t stop…

Destiel is just a part of Cas and Dean

I’m kind of fed up with some of the anti-shipping stuff I’m seeing going around making out that Destiel takes away from Cas and Dean’s characters or in some way people who ship them are only interested in this aspect of the characters.

It’s like there’s this weird universe where people can’t see that a relationship is just a part of a person’s life and I worry for these people and what they think should happen in real life.

The whole point of Destiel is that Dean and Cas have their own characters, personalities and endgames. They are currently and will continue to help each other get to these endgames, but it is NOT that they are each other’s endgame in themselves!

This is a ridiculous and frankly upsetting notion to me, that a person’s life and happiness hinges just on another person?! This is so unhealthy in reality - I don’t want it in fiction, thank you. 

Much as we see in other stories the idea is that the character has their own endgame which is generally to end up happy and the “best them that they can be”. The relationship is just a part of the way to help this develop eg. Ariel, Belle, Lizzy Bennet & Mr Darcy, like… all good love stories?! I wrote about this in more depth here… just cos I love how Destiel can literally be liked to Disney, classics, bloody Shakespeare…because it is just a standard trope, it is a love story.

Cas rebelled and loved humanity before he met Dean, he has always felt ‘different’ and like he didn’t belong. He wants more. Dean is helping with this, he has taught him Free Will, to belong with them etc etc.

Dean has always struggled with low self worth and a lack of self acceptance and faith. Cas is helping with this, he continually strives to show Dean that “he deserves to be saved / good things do happen” - from their FIRST MOMENT. 

I mean, there’s loads more but those are just the bullet points.

Yes, their endgames are interlinked but they do not FIX each other like a bandaid by covering up and negating all their issues, what they do is address these issues alongside other factors (like Sam, the overriding story arcs etc) and therefore complete each other.

And that is a beautiful and healthy love story.

How my time spent in fandom has changed me: a summary

Person: Wow, your character is kind of a Mary Sue…

Me when I first entered fandom: oh gosh that’s horrible, I’ll be more careful when writing in the future.

Me now: hell yeah she is. And killin’ it. 


Person: Update soon!! I need mOAR!!!

Me when I first entered fandom: Haha, I’ll try! I’m glad you like my story so much :D

Me now: And I need $10,000, for there to be more hours in a day, and sleep but I guess neither of us are gonna get what we want, huh.


Person: You should really consider writing a scene where character x does this. Also I don’t think the direction you’re currently taking the story makes sense, it’d really be better if you…”

Me when I first entered fandom: Okay, I’ll take that into consideration! Thanks for the advice!

Me now: why don’t you fukcng write it yourself then, you asdkflajfkadsjfla–


Person: Seriously? You honestly like that character? But they’re so problematic.

Me when I first entered fandom: *mumbles inaudibly*

Me now: Your point? I mean sure, they’re absolute trash, but they’re Mine and you can’t take them from me. 


Person: But that ship doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.

Me when I first entered fandom: Yeah…maybe you’re right…

Me now (with a wild glint in my eyes, shoving 2 pieces of fanart and unfinished fic scraps into their face): But it could. It could


Person: Do you read smut?

Me when I first entered fandom: I…I mean…sometimes s-sex comes up in a fic? I always skip over it though!!

Me now: Why? Do you want recs?


Person: Don’t you think it’s kind of weird to be so obsessed over fictional characters? I mean, you have two tests next week and instead of studying, you’re hunched over your laptop frantically writing fic at 2 a.m. Like, how do you justify that?

Me when I first entered fandom: *wails*

Me now: *wails louder*

Alien series ranked by how stupid the characters are

Alien: Smart people! Make informed decisions based on the facts in front of them. Only really stupid when they let Kane on the ship, but they didn’t do it for stupidity sake only so i let it pass.

Aliens: Some dumb people, but that’s really down to greed and not taking things seriously. Stick together (mostly), make well thought out plans, and are generally intelligent (Gorman not withstanding).

Alien vs Predator: Actually figure out what’s going on pretty fast. They do split up, but they didn’t know tow hostile alien species were coming to kill them so i give em a pass. Also Lex is smart as hell

Alien: Resurrection: The Betty crew is smart, once shit goes sideways the whole main crew sticks together and generally works well. The company? Bunch of idiots trying to resurrect an extinct, highly hostile alien life form like their own little jurassic park.

Alien 3: A couple smart prisoners in the land of morons. Charles S. dutton’s character single-handedly brings this above the bottom 3.

Prometheus: there is a whole scene where they play with a weird space snake. They run forward from a moving ship when they could run side-wards. Kind of after the fact but Shaw rebuilds an android that tried to kill them all. They aren’t smart y’all.

Alien: Covenant: every character seems to have the intelligence of someone from a Friday the 13th movie. “Let me just separate from the group to bathe myself even though I know there are dangerous creatures out there” “Let me just stick my head in this egg like the shady android told me to do” “Let’s go bang in the shower right after all our friends die”. Bunch of morons

Alien vs Predator: Requiem: “the government would never lie to us” *proceeds to be blown up by a bomb dropped by the government* me: looks at the camera like i’m on the office

anonymous asked:

analyse who's your daddy please. i need it.

“im about to analyze it to death be ready fools” that is the best and most exciting thing i’ve ever seen you write

i feel like “let’s never have kids” implies a “together” and i’m feeling emotionally overwhelmed about how casually they say things like this now :“)

just wanted to acknowledge all of these messages bc they made me lol :’) ok goodness. this video. wow. there’s a lot here. i’m just gonna focus on the shit that made me do immense double takes and actually go (similar to the third anon) ‘wth how are they saying this stuff so casually?? ?? what?’ there was a lot of that during this vid. i’m v shook.

first and foremost wtf @ their seeming indifference towards making sexual innuendos that involve each other. wtf @ their subtly destroying heteronormativity by lookin’ at the dad’s hot pink dildo and being relatively cool with it? apart from a bit of a chuckle from dan, they barely reacted? and wtf @ dan saying ‘we’re not kink roleplaying … YET’ like it was nbd? that would’ve literally given everyone a heart attack not even a year ago. similarly at the close of the video he says “if you want to see more father-son simulator, if that’s the kind of weird phan roleplay you’re into” and i actually squeaked???? ? when’s the last time either of them have even said the word “phan,” as a reference to their ship name, out loud, let alone on one of their main channels? but more than that, there wasn’t any of the usual attempt at hard-core shaming the audience for being into that sort of fantasy or for presuming that he and phil could ever be in a sexual situation together. for lack of a better way to phrase it, dan didn’t ‘no homo’ the idea of him sexually roleplaying w phil beyond the use of the word ‘weird’–and that was directly aimed at the kink, not the idea of sexual roleplay w phil generally?? if anything he just seemed amused by it. he didn’t call anyone pervs for thinking about it, he went out of his way to say it in the first place,,,, i can’t emphasize enough how much of a progression that is? ??? ?? i don’t really know why i am surprised since they’ve clearly relaxed their boundaries with us ever since the latter half of last year, but like. i’m surprised. it was noteworthy. i’m so happy about it. 

on a similar yet totally unrelated note, dan saying “philly doesn’t understand wasd,” towards the start of the vid is such an incredible example of how good they are at gradually normalizing certain things w their audience until they become completely unremarkable. the use of ‘philly’ as a nickname esp on dapg has escalated a lot in the past few months but really they’ve been seeding it for like nearly two years now. at this point it’s just soooo normal that most people don’t pick up on it? but it’s another example of something that even a year ago would’ve caused a lot of people to hyperventilate and pass out. today, however, i’ve seen literally zero posts or comments on the video about it. they’re so, so good at this–at slowly doing things that initially cause an uproar and then very rapidly become a normal thing bc of frequency. (another example, at least for me, is dan’s wavy hair lately. he’s been wearing it wavy so much that i honestly didn’t even notice till like 7 mins in that it wasn’t straightened. and then when i rewatched an old dapg vid just now i couldn’t believe how straight his hair usually was in the past!!! hope he sticks with the soft n’ wavy/thin gold earring rebrand idea for 2017 bc he looks amazing) 

obvi the biggest thing in this video though (let’s not even try to pretend otherwise) was all of the discussion of parenting and, specifically, co-parenting. together. having children. together. as a unit. wow. i honestly don’t really know how to adequately communicate how excited this makes me? ?? ? similarly to the sexual innuendo stuff, it’s crazy how far they’ve come in a relatively short span of time. they’re at the point where they can make comments like ‘maybe it will teach us how to be real parents,’ and ‘you’re an even worse dad than me,’ and ‘let’s never be parents’ (let. US. never. be. parents. [together].) to their audience without a second thought. and before all u doubters come crawlin’ out of ur anti caves to tell me that they could be talking about being parents individually with other partners …. … no?  i really don’t think they were. not the least bc it would hardly make sense for them to say things like ‘wow let us never be parents in our future separate lives with other partners ha!’ but also bc right after two of the biggest co-parenting comments (‘let’s never be parents’ and then my personal fav: ‘in hindsight, are we good parents?’) they start talking about the sims. phil even says ‘i can’t believe dil and dab have survived OUR parenting.’ it’s jst so demonstrative of the fact that they are thinking about parenting TOGETHER and i honestly couldn’t believe how open they were about that. which brings me to the moment towards the end when dan says “so in hindsight are we good parents?” i screenshotted the look that phil gave dan after and rb’ed a gif of it because … wth. it’s so fleeting. but it felt so important? there’s something so different about the way phil looks at dan right after saying ‘no. we’re terrible,’ almost as though he wants to check to see how dan reacts or as though he is just caught up in the softness of the idea of them having children at all. he gives this little breathy laugh and their eye contact there is so soft and so cute and so noteworthy bc it feels like something we weren’t really even meant to see. it feels like phil displaying his inner feelings a bit more than he normally would feel comfortable with. it was such a telling little moment for me (fully aware that i sound a bit crazy but like,,, whatever). 

also. bonus. phil noting the size of the garden then immediately wondering how much it costs … .. .. …. seems like someone’s mind is conditioned towards house hunting. just a thought. 

Revisiting Aya

[[Anonymous requested “Jaal and Ryder at the waterfall location” and I took liberties. Also, this got sort of out of control.

NSFW, smut

Ryder x Jaal

AO3]]

There were certain perks in being Pathfinder, one of which was that if you asked people to clear out of a small area at a given time, they generally fell over themselves in their haste to accommodate. At one point in time, it was something Wren Ryder may have felt guilty about, but today she was reveling in the comparative freedom it gave her, steering the small shuttle from Aya’s bustling city into the quiet of the foothills.

“Ryder, you are sure you can drive this?” Jaal was stuck in the passenger seat, blindfolded and trying to sit with his hands folded, every now and then turning his head in her approximate direction and trying to look as skeptical as one can with half their face blocked.

“Nope, but how difficult can it be? Few switches, ignition… I’ll wing it.” And winging it she indeed was, having not yet managed to crash and burn and kill them all. It would be a bad beginning to what she had envisioned as the perfect day. An anniversary. Their first, hopefully of many. She was uncertain if angara even thought of anniversaries in the same way humans did, and even less sure that they followed the same calendar year, but she kept her mouth shut, simply telling Jaal it was a surprise. He would have to live with that.

With surprising smoothness, the shuttle landed, a soft burst of hair preventing it from crushing too many plants. They were here, and the butterflies in her stomach were suddenly overwhelming. “Okay, you can take off the blindfold. Uhm, surprise?” Doubts assailed her; this was a bad idea, he wouldn’t care, this was cheesy, too over the top. It took all her willpower just to look at him and try and gauge what his reaction would be, rather than looking away and just attempting to hope for the best.

Jaal pulled the blindfold off his face, eyes widening. “The hot springs. You have taken us back here.” He turned to smile at her, his hand drifting over to cover her own and squeeze it gently. “I asked Liam to show me a human calendar. It has been a year since you said yes to being with me.” Ah, so he hadn’t forgotten. Not at all. “I was going to surprise you back at the Tempest, but I see you’ve beaten me to it. The punch.” The phrase came out garbled, as if Ryder had ever expected anything else.

“There’s more. Come on.” Stepping out of the shuttle, Ryder walked with more confidence than she actually felt, moving to the edge of the water and looking out over it. It looked the same as it had before- maybe slightly more lush, but equally as beautiful, the cool air contrasting with the natural heat of the water and creating a pleasant shimmering effect over the whole area. It had been perfect then, and it was perfect now, and there was a comfort in this new familiarity. A year and it felt like yesterday in the best possible way.

Jaal followed her with his eyes, leaning against the shuttle and simply watching with a half-smile on his face. Shooting a look back at him, Ryder removed her shirt, hoping that this paid off. It had involved a lot of asking around human settlers woken from Nexus, trying to figure out who had their priorities out of order enough that they would bring the item in question in the first place. Eventually she had found someone, but talking the woman out of it had been another battle entirely, and it had cost her so many credits… Not the point Ryder, she told herself. This is the point.

Her back was to Jaal as her shirt landed on the rocks, and when she looked over her shoulder, she was trying to gauge his reaction to the swimsuit she was wearing. Two pieces, far flimsier than her tastes usually ran. She felt almost like a kid playing dress up than an actual adult, but the last time they had been here they had undressed themselves, and there was something lacking in that. Jaal’s hands couldn’t deal with the intricacies of human clothing so well, but pulling on a few pieces of string? Even a krogan could manage that.

Jaal’s hands carefully settled on either side of her waist, pulling her around where he could look her up and down with obvious appreciation. “I will devour you,” he said simply, emphasizing ‘will’ to stress how imminent it truly was. “But what is it?” One hand picked up one of the strings, rubbing it between two fingers gently, the texture clearly strange for him. To be fair, neoprene felt weird even just on her skin after so long in either armor or her own ship clothes, like it was too slinky and too slippery, as if it could slide right off. Which was kind of the point, come to think of it.

Every time I see your art of a rare pair I somehow become a huge fan of that rare pair. I have too many otps...,

…is it okay for me to be happy I’m dragging you down with me on all of my weird ships because tbh I am for a lot of them there’s just a handful of people shipping them I’m happy you’re joining us hahaha

Anon said: because of your tags on that kamisero post i now love the hc that kirishima just uses loving bakugou as an excuse to get out of conversations that make him uncomfortable, even if it makes no sense. Like ‘any advice on how to confess?’ 'I’m dating bakugou, you probably should ask someone else.’ or 'how do you think snow works?’ 'Dude I’m dating bakugou, i don’t know.’

I’m in love with this ask because this has been my most ridiculous headcanon for an age I’m glad I could subtely make you share it, anon - Kirishima being perfectly aware of the fact that aside from the face there is no objective reason why he should be that smitten with Bakugou? That’s my jam, he’s as surprised as anyone else so when people ask him anything love related he’s like “do I look like a reliable source man DO I I think it’s hot when Bakugou yells there’s obviously something wrong with me you don’t want my advices”

But also for however aware of it he might be he’s still in love with the dude so people pointing it out to him gets old really fast, like, “it’s one thing if I say it myself and another it’s you talking shit about my boyfriend stop that”, which is why he just starts using “what do I know I like Bakugou” as an answer to anything - it starts with him being a smartass and it becomes just habit by the end of it, sometimes he uses it when Bakugou is around or with Bakugou himself and Bakugou doesn’t understand, doesn’t want to understand, has pondered the option of getting angry/offended/demanding an explaination and has deemed it not worth his time because the answer is most probably just gonna be that his boyfriend is an idiot anyway

(also he might or might not like how Kirishima’s pretty much just going around telling people he likes him over and over again, tbh)

Thank you very much for the message! I really appreciate your kind words. <333 I attached a Gency doodle which I am going to post with a pic of Hanzo and McCree(as usual…naked) to this reply so that you can avoid seeing the other ship because I am not sure whether you like Mchanzo or not.

More aos meets tos please?

  • Something is different when Bones wakes up in the morning. He’s next to Jim, so that’s nothing new. Jim is still asleep next to him; looking as charming as he always does asleep. Hair a mess, face pressed in the pillow, sprawled out and taking up most space in bed. But their bed looks different. Bones leans in, pulling the other in closer. “Jim,” he says, and Jim grunts as a response. “Jim,” Bones repeats, leaning over him, “wake up. Something’s different.”
  • “I’m sure it’s fine,” Jim says when they make their way back to the bridge. “Have you even looked around?” Bones counters, “look at your uniform!” “I’m aware it looks different,” Jim says. Not just their uniforms and their beds. Everything looks different. They get to the bridge, and Jim falls down on his chair. “Sulu, what’s our coordinates?” “Captain,” Sulu says - or, rather, two Sulu’s say, and only then Jim becomes aware of the fact that there seem to be two of every one of his crew. “What’s going on?” Jim asks, and the other Chekov huffs. “Your Captain is not very perceptive, yes?” “He tries,” Chekov replies to that.
  • “So what the hell is going on?” Jim asks, pacing around the meeting room adjacent to the Bridge. “You tell me,” the other Kirk says. It’s weird to meet his older (future?), or at least different self. Kirk rests his hands on his hips, and Jim feels a strange urge to mimic that stance. He denies himself, though. “Yesterday we were on our own ship, and now we’re somehow here. Same ship, kind of, same crew, different universe.” Leaning against the table, Jim watches Kirk pace around a little. “Either one of us must have messed with our own continuum. Did you encounter anything weird yesterday?” “I mean, Bones was in a strangely good mood,” Jim replies, and Kirk smiles fondly. “That’s certainly strange, but not what we’re looking for. We should ask Spock.” “Oh yeah,” Jim says, getting back up on his feet, “where is Spock, anyway?”
  • “Fascinating,” both Vulcans say almost simultaneously when both Jim and Kirk walk into Spock’s quarters. Of course, both of them are engaged in a game of chess. “Any idea what’s been going on?” Kirk asks. “Negative, Captain,” Spock replies, “although we seem to have affected their universe with ours.” “We figured out as much, too,” Jim replies, “and you’re playing chess?” “Naturally, we’re observing the differences and similarities in reactions among otherwise-” “Okay, Spock,” Jim says, “let’s figure out how to get home instead.”
  • Even scarier than two Spocks agreeing with everything and repeatedly seeming fascinated by their surroundings, is Bones with the older doctor McCoy. The first time Jim finds them together in med bay, they’re arguing over how to best save a patient. It’s two angry forces going at each other, saying essentially the same thing, and somehow still disagreeing. The very next moment, they somehow seem old friends. That’s even scarier. Bonding over the numerous times they’ve unnecessarily saved either Spock or Jim. As soon as they’re even mentioning this new hypo spray, though, both Jim and Kirk are out immediately. 
  • Generally, Jim gets along well with the other captain. He seems a little softer, and it makes Jim realize just how all over the place he can be. But as soft as Kirk can be, there’s a look in his eyes that’s a little intimidating. Not usually reserved for Jim, until Jim falls down in the captain’s chair. Kirk stands next to him, and just a brief look is enough for Jim to quietly get up and let the other sit down instead.
  • Spock (both of them) come with the news that they should be finding their way back within the next 24 hours or so, else the rift between both universes would close and they’d cease to exist. That’s enough for both crews to really start working together to find a solution, and thankfully, two heads are better than one. Let alone two of the exact same crew. Both Scotty’s make it possible for all of them to beam back aboard their own Enterprise, probably, and that’s the best they can offer, but it’s also the only thing they have.
  • “I can tell you’re fond of your doctor,” Kirk says, and Jim nods lightly. “Of my whole crew,” he replies, and Kirk smiles fondly. “Good,” he says, resting a hand on Jim’s shoulder, “I know I can’t offer you much advice, since we’re not supposed to change the future, but I want you to know you’re doing fine.” “Is that narcissistic, coming from my older self?” Jim asks, and Kirk laughs. “Just, for the love of God, don’t forget your doctor’s 40th birthday. He says he doesn’t care, but he’ll hold it against you for years.” Jim laughs at that. “Noted,” he says, them steps up on that platform with the rest of his crew. “Good luck in your endeavours, Jim,” Kirk says, as Scotty starts to energize the launch pad, “as long as you never stop caring for your family, you’ll do just fine.”

Omae is a disrespectful/offensive way of saying "you." As a Ciellizzy shipper I wouldn't exactly like him calling her that :/

This bothers me on so many levels right now so let’s count them:

Here is wikipedia:

1.

Ciel is a freaking brat. Could you imagine him speaking to people in the most polite tone there is? No. Ciel’s simply a rude kid so I like that pronoun for him. But even if we say it’s not the politest “you”, it’s still not the end of the world, right? I doubt he speaks like that to more influencial people tho, @akumadeenglish?  Anyway, it’s not like calling Lizzy “omae” would indicate him trying to be rude to her. It says more about Ciel himself I think. 

2.

NOW WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT! You’ve probably read this above already but I feel like pointing it out: a very casual relationship with someone you’re very close to? Like for example…your fiancee whom you grew up with? I totally love this because on top of allowing him to express his big ego the pronoun also indicates he and Lizzy are close. I must say this is almost the main reason I am bothered with your ask. If he were to address her more politely it’d be because he’d have to be worried she’d take him to be rude. But she doesn’t. Elizabeth is fine with her Ciel saying “omae” to her. It’s just super casual like he can be himself. I am also not quite sure how rude it really is. Like, anime gives a lot of room for speach patterns of all kinds and even there you can see them contemplate about each other’s use of pronouns and honorifics and such. In the end of the day, isn’t “omae” just “you” without any extras? Japanese people seem to be very sensitive there already… like when you walk up to a stranger and call them by their name without any honorifics… It seems to be such a big deal in their culture…Weird. XD But in that way it suits them, right? Ciel and Elizabeth are so close. Ciel and Elizabeth don’t use honorifics for each other either so “omae” makes sense, right? @akumadeenglish, correct me if I’m wrong please, I’m only speaking from my anime experience. (Oh my God, how did I end up here? XD)

Bam baem BAM BAAAAAAAAM~ Tell me again that as a shipper you wouldn’t exactly like him to call her that. Tell me again, now’s your chance! XD Seriously, I didn’t know that either before this topic came up. THIS IS SO COOL! Acknowledgement for the ship. God bless. Japanese is so weird and so much fun! X3 

I kind of love how that pronoun suits them so perfectly, how much better could it possibly get?

But now I have to come to my main reason to be upset:

He calls her “omae” here too in the original. Does it really matter what word he uses? Like, this is what Ciel thinks of her: the girl he will protect at any cost. How could it possibly matter to anyone if Ciel were to address her with a rude pronoun!? It is simply beyond me how that could ever matter! I don’t understand what’s the big deal about it. Even if he actually were to address her rudely,which he doesn’t do, this is what his actions say. Do you as a shipper think the pronoun would actually matter compared to this?

…I feel I’ve gotten lost in a rant. Feel free to point out to me how much shit I just threw together here. Have fun. XD

Alright since I’m getting a lot of hate messages and stuff so I’m just gonna make this clear. I don’t ship Rick and Morty romantically. Like, I ship them comedically. How can I explain this, uhh, like a combo. I just love the pair? I just like seeing them together going adventures and stuff and just getting along. Them together making jokes about something, laughing - I just like seeing those kinds of cute and fluffy art and I want to draw them. That’s what I meant about “shipping”, okay? Stop sending me hate. It’s really hard to deal with them and affecting my mental health a lot. I’m a person just like you who has daily lives.

and ALSO, for that Pinecest art I drew months ago, I drew that for my friend on Twitter because they liked the ship. I don’t blame or think they’re weird since it’s a fictional ship. Y’all need to know the difference between reality and fiction.

hello again, sorry for bothering. i loved you headcanons about gorillaz they are great, so good. one more question: do you ship any of the gorillaz together?

Not really in a romantic way besides Russdel and occasionally 2russ and Russdoc. I think their relationships to one another are much more platonic and familial than anything else, even when they’re fucked up and sort of unhealthy.

And the fucked-up-ed-ness is what makes them interesting: the distressed but still obviously present father-daughter relationship between Noodle and Murdoc, the way she watches over the boys now that they’re old and broken the way they took care of her when she was young and growing, the grudging respect between Murdoc and Russel who would each probably kill the other if they didn’t have musical talent, the quiet comraderie between Russel and 2D, and the weird way 2D and Murdoc have evolved from a vitriolic friendship into a constantly shifting mess of hate, admiration, and necessity for the sake of their music.

Expedition Wild West: Part 1

For @shadeofazmeinya​ based on the Astroneer Let’s Play a wild back.

I don’t know what’s going to come out of this writing project, but I hope you enjoy it.


Stardate 2655.1.12

Expedition Wild West has begun. The starship The Hunter’s Achievement captained by Geoffrey Ramsey has sent down an exploratory team of four core members to the planet Sorola-6 for future expeditions. The mission statement is to discover what resources the planet contains and if it is viable for future habitation. The mission is set to take over the course of one universal year.

I dunno if he was no homoing or what but Link pulling faces and saying "I'm soo comfortable up here right now"(sarcastically) and "I'm un- why you gotta make it weird... Right in here"(gesturing to fangirls) makes me think he really doesn't like shipping at all... And I dunno. It feels bad. Like he's not just doing it for the camera on the show but rhink legitimately makes him uncomfortable. Rhett can joke but Link not so much.

He doesn’t come off as deeply uncomfortable to me, more like the kind of response one has when something makes them blush. I’m not sure how to exactly encapsulate that, but it isn’t worrying to me.

and that’s it!! this was really long but worth it. I thought it’d be convenient to compile them all, so all you artists and fans can use it as red headcanons, theories, fanfictions, art, etc. (i know i would. seriously, some of these are real good tidbits of info.) if you guys have any more characters you want me to make a list of, just send me an ask and ill do it!!

edit: This post is getting a lot of notes, so I decided to also give credit to tumblr user asterweich for having the screencaps compiled under the ava’s formspring tag. without them I couldn’t have compiled all of these facts!! they haven’t messaged me about it but my sincerest apologies to the user, whom i didn’t credit earlier. i really should have, and again i extend my sincerest apologies

anonymous asked:

I know PT is a Richonne story but I kind of don't want them to get together b/c I think Lori is/was the love of Rick's life... like idk I feel like he will never be able to love anyone as much as he loved her... its weird bc I dont even like Lori but I'm shipping them kind of hard in this one, lmao. What have you done to me?? Or maybe I just don't get it...

Well that’s definitely the first time I’ve heard that, lmao. I’ll say that you’re entitled and supposed to feel however you want to feel, so if that’s how you see it, you’re certainly not wrong. That wasn’t exactly my intent, but I actually think that’s kinda cool. 😄

If you want it, my opinion is that Lori probably wasn’t The Love of Rick’s life. He loved her deeply and they had a good marriage, but… if he’d had a chance with Michonne all those years ago, he would’ve taken it and not looked back. He wanted it. But when he realized it wasn’t going to happen, he moved on with his life, and luckily, it worked out. (Well, until she went and died, lol.) But now, the opportunity for a second chance with Michonne is presenting itself, and he’s taking it. And his relationship with her doesn’t have to compare to what he had with Lori (if it happens 👀), but there’s no reason it can’t be just as wonderful, if not more. We’re allowed more than one great relationship in our lives. If we’re lucky, we learn from old loves and we’re better for new ones.
