I saw that post about toxicity on fandom and I'm wondering if you think there's a toxic part in the les mus fandom? I'm new here and it all seems very friendly
Listen buddy, I’ve been trying to answer to this post for a while first I was going for super salty, then I was going to analytically spill my tea, then I just… didn’t answer.
The thing is: this fandom is great, like.. really great I’ve met the best people on the internet because of this fandom and most importantly I’ve never witnessed such open minded head canons nor such an inclusive fandom in general. This fandom IS great the thing is, like most great things it has its rotten part. This part’s made of
a.those people who erase (consciously or not) the political impact and message of the novel like NO, Fantine didn’t die for you to make a brothel!AU, Javert didn’t die for you to keep saying ACAB and shit, Valjean is not just soft dad, he’s a way more complex character than what most people make him come off as The ABC was not just some random lgbt guys thrown there for fun and shipping, they actually did something? and idk, it seems like most people focus their attention on the fact that they died more than on the fact that they died for SOMETHING (that something being freedom and justice) I get that we focus more on the ABC guys because age-wise we tend to relate to them more, but y’all should really stop to make the following AUs (because they are toxic, violent and overall against the whole message) -royalty AU -mafia AU (my personal crusade is against mafia AUs) -it’s deemed for this list to go on and on and on, but atm I’m stuck with these two and can’t think of anything else
b. those people who keep trying to make communism happen. it’s not going to happen. More like.. it has happened and honestly millions died so please stop this shitty stuff. Les Amis had red flags for military reasons, also beacuse Communism wasn’t a thing back in 1862. Socialism was and that’s not Communism. Listen, I studied the blade Marx, I studied the Communist Manifesto, I studied Communism’s ideas and everything, I even have a Marx’s poster in my room because I really admire that guy, such an incredible dude. and it was a GREAT theory. but like most socio-economic theories it was an Utopia. and you know what spoiled it? the fact that Lenin first and Stalin later on used it as a mean to keep Russia (and all URSS) and I’m not saying that supporting a regime is toxic, but no wait I am… So yeah… let’s make communism just a meme without anyone trying to make it a real thing? maybe? thanks
c. the friendly reminder people those guys as a whole. stop. you’re not friendly, you’re manipulative and kinda rude.
d. Entitlement it’s a big thing in this fandom, a lot of people seem to have a specific set of opinions and are clearly really close to changing those??? and?? it’s kinda ??? closed minded also the Tutti situation really was some fresh air, sadly y’all kinda ruined it spoiling this perfect meme in the span of 2 days (yes, I was there for Tutti, I have memed about Tutti, but my ENTIRE dashboard was made of Tutti) So on one hand a lot of people were saved by tutti by laughing and temporarily raising their ass from that stick they were sitting on, but at the same time the entire thing was ruined. Memes are not forever apparently. On another level: stop trying to make Enjonine happen, it’s not going to happen.
e. The Spoiling Good Headcanons Part of the Fandom what do I mean by that? I mean those people who clearly have no clue what they’re talking about yet go on making entire alternative universes basing their story on something completely misunderstood or completely ignorig historical accuracy (I understand your good intentions, Deborah, but at least look at the stats of that specific minority being actually real in canon!era france… this might also just be a pet peeve of mine??) also those people who take stereotypes and just apply them making it an even worse thing I’m talking about - latino Courf being flamboyant and stereotypically flashy and sexual - alcoholism being seen as a quirk (this whole wine mom culture is fucked up, please realize it) - mental illnesses being cured by LOVE and BONING (is this enjoltaire? yes)
Honestly we’re all down on considering Fanfictions and Fanart important art pieces, we’ve all read and seen great stuff fandom related, so that’s not an issue. Why don’t we start looking at fanfictions and fanarts as a mean of education too? (take NSFW as an example, it’s a fanfiction about the p^rn industry and it’s well written and kind of educates you on a lot of things while being entertaining.)
IN CONCLUSION: there’s a lot of shit going on, but you’re young and I am old and wtv man, I hope this can be your home, just keep out of those toxic guys with the above ideas. like really, this fandom has given me a lot of lessons and I?ve been in the shittiest/coolest fandoms around (YA, Anime, Kpop) so I was READY for shit to go down, yet it never goes down and while all that stuff above is pretty much a thing we’re still a great community overall (like.. 70% of the time we’re loving and caring and supportive)
+++ If anyone wants to fight send me an ask, I’m already in the pit. +++
hello, dear koro, do you happen to have some naegami fic recs? thank you in advance \(^3^)/
You came to the right place, anon. I have a lot of personal favorites because I spend a lot of time on ao3, specially on the naegami tag. So there we go! (If you’d like I can recommend some from ff.net as well, but… It’s been really long since I last checked the dr tag there.)
Human Nature (orphan_account) — I don’t think this is ever getting updated, but it works as a one-shot too, so hey. Togami having a long and bad thinking time after Naegi’s execution.
Silence is Golden (Sapphire_Petal) — Post NWP, Naegi having ‘Good Thoughts™’, if you get what I mean. Good if you’re searching for something angsty.
Affected (Laurea) — A very good canon divergent naegami path for DR1. It’s my biggest favorite! The characters and everything is written very in character, imo, and you can see it actually happening. It’s also really long so it’s definitely a must read!
Somnambulism (WolfieChan12) — Naegi starts telling Togami weird dreams [no, not that kind of dreams lmao] and he enjoys it. Not really romantic but it’s very cute and fun.
Night (loveoffluffandangst) — Night Time fluff. Togami being a caring bf. Naegi being adorable. Your classic must read fluff!
Contemplations in a Cage (Justanothersinger) — Naegi goes to the pool at night, Togami shows up, Syo too, chaos happens and Togami and Naegi end up talking on a locker. Has a good mix of sadness and dorks, it’s one of my favorites favorites!
Unexpected (RockinT765) — Pre-Despair. Togami trying to work out how Naegi’s feelings work, mostly. Nice and super enjoyable fluff!
Bulletproof (bowe13579) — There isn’t much context to this, simply… Read it. It’s short angst with Togami trying to enjoy his lasts moments with Naegi. Bittersweet.
Tearstained (WolfieChan12) — Naegi has a breakdown because of the Killing Game stress. Togami has an awkward time trying to comfort people. But Naegi’s smile makes it worth it. Short hurt/comfort, very neat!
Fall (Sapphire_Petal) — Owo what’s this? DR3 Future AU with Togami and Naegi as Munakata and Yukizome! I love how the set up was made and it all works so smoothly.
Romancing an Heir? (RockinT765) — Pre-Despair or Happy AU, take it as you want. Togami being a mess trying to figure out how to act on his feelings for Naegi, egg being a sweet oblivious boy. One of my favorite fluffs.
Remember Me (Laurea) — Naegi & Co. get their memories back. Feelings come back, too. Amazing AU, please, PLEASE read it. actually just read all of Laurea’s fanfics
Smile (loveoffluffandangst) — Just the summary is enough to describe how good this is. Favorite favorite, I recommend it a lot.
Don’t Look Back (zetsubousei (popnographic)) — AU, set Post-Despair. Again, the summary is far better than anything I can do. Long 27 chapters read, the gang all being supportive friends towards each other [which gives me life, honestly] and just the perfect mix of angsty thoughts and sweet moments makes the length worth it. Favorite favorite.
sour apple (ryuuzaou) — Togami and Naegi have a confession time at a locker. Very nice characterization and not long enough as to be heavy, but not short either! One of my favorite one shots ever.
Well, that was long but I hope you have a good time with these stories! Thanks for coming by!
Gintama 632: Okay, fuck, everything’s being so fucking amazing in Gintama world rn, right, but all I can really think about is how tired Sorachi must be. Like. The quality’s been so fucking awesome for so long now, and I worry that he’s gonna get tired. Or maybe that’s what all these years has been about, just charging up his awesomeness, with full intention to spend it all in one blow…

for the hundredth time since you set about sewing the gash closed on Dean’s shoulder, you stood abruptly, jostling the injured hunter. “This
just a few stitches, Y/N. Nothing you haven’t done before.” Dean seized
the opportunity to take another pull from the half empty bottle of
“No, it’s not that. I just… I can’t get the angle I need to do it right.” And that’s when you figured it out.
Watching you walk around him, Dean shifted uneasily in the chair. “What?”
You stopped in front of him, jean clad knees brushing against his. “Move your legs.”
the pool had to be evacuated, everyone fled in panic because the tsunami was real and murasakibara just kind of remained sat in the middle of the empty pool. it was a shitty idea, and they will never try anything other than basketball ever again

i had an exam today but luckily i scrolled through the chapter before i left and all if have to say is im so happy i could die. i’m so tired i wanna pass out but i’m gonna dump all of my happiness in a very short post
mostly i’m just happy yamaguchi got such a substantial development. like, it was very gradual and his struggles and improvements were so carefully showcased in the margin of the bigger narrative and i’m just so happy because he deserves such a fulfilling development because yamaguchi’s so great
and also, i don’t think i need to highlight the contrast because it’s been so throughly indicated, but i just. i loved it so much. it was so… impactful, visual wise. you could really feel his determination as he stepped into the court and how entirely different the situation was in contrast with his reluctancy and fear the last two times. he wasn’t overwhelmed now, just focused and determined and. g o d
and w H EN HE SCORED I’M JUST SO HAPPY HE LET OUT SO MUCH AND EVERYONE AROUND HIM WERE SO HYPED AND BASICALLY EVERYONE WAS ON HIM AND IT WAS SO MUCH
and of course being the tsukkiyama trash i am, i absolutely died with the tsukki comment. it still obviously involves tsukishima developing as a character more than yamaguchi himself, but i’m so glad he’s leveled to a point where he can actually let out those kind of positive feelings, because the situation really called for it and he cared. he cares for yamaguchi a lot and i’m glad he’s slowly trying to show it. of course, this is all from the very intrincate, complicated tsukishima emotion dimension, but the point gets through, i believe. besides i mean come o n, you can tell how much it meant to yamaguchi; boy almost started crying
LOOK AT THOSE SHAKY PUPILS. ME TOO YAMAGUCHI
and just. overall thankful for yamaguchi’s character and development up till this point. as an extremely insecure person myself, seeing him dealing with his issues in such a… real, yet resolute manner is so… inspiring. fulfilling. it genuinely is everything to me and i’m so glad yamaguchi exists. my boy. my son.
AND SO HAPPY HE’S GENUINELY ENJOYING VOLLEYBALL. THAT IT’S NOT PRACTICING AND CHEERING FROM THE SIDES AS HE USED TO BELIEVE AND THAT NOW HE’S STRONG ENOUGH TO ENJOY HIMSELF. I’M SO TEARY EYED FOR THIS FUCKING BOY I CAN’T BELIEVE IT
Let’s take a moment to talk about those who have earned themselves a reputation in the most famous religious literature (Holy Bible, Tanakh, Qur'an, [Koran] etc).
And for very obvious examples, try Jesus, or Muhammad.
Many of these men (and women) claimed:
-to be a non-human entity in a human body -to be able to see, hear, talk to, channel, banish, and invoke/evoke (summon) demons, angels, ghosts, spirits, even GODetc. -to be able to develop/strengthen themselves spiritually through faith or other energy work -to be able to perform miracles such as healing, divination, etc. through their faith and energy work
I mean Hell, look at what Moses unleashed on the Egyptians.
People witnessed the many acts by their religious leaders, and recorded them in the Holy Books listed above. Many people have indisputable faith in the events depicted in their religion.
They won’t hear a word about how it’s impossible to take a fish and a loaf of bread and make hundreds of multiples out of thin air. Jesus did it because the Bible says He did it. It’s absolutely preposterous anyone suggest there’s no physical way Sarah bear Abraham a child at the age of 90 (and let me remind you Abraham was 100 himself). Why would someone lie about such things?
I could go on and on about the seemingly physically impossible acts people have had recorded in history through the Apostles and other authors of The Bible.
The men that wrote the Bible would have had no reason to lie, right? They saw with their own eyes the miracles God’s closest followers could procure, and simply recorded them. No Christian sees any of these events as odd, impossible, or false, regardless of the simple truth that there is no evidence-other than words on paper-to back it.
NOW WAIT - I am not attempting to discredit Christianity or any other religion. NOT AT ALL. Quite the contrary; I’m actually fond of Christianity (when people aren’t using it as an excuse to be rude).
Having a religion or belief in spirituality is known to make people feel happier, safer, less stressed, and allow them to find a group of like-minded people to mingle and share their experiences with.
My point of this way too long post is:
WHY, THEN, ARE EVERYONE ELSE'S SPIRITUAL EXPERIENCES CONSIDERED BS?
So many people in the following categories are bullied, slandered, cursed at, insulted, laughed at, and so many more ATROCIOUS things, simply for having a RELIGIOUS, or SPIRITUAL belief that “they can’t prove” or “isn’t normal.”
-multiple pagan communities (this includes but is not limited to: demonolaters, spirit workers, witches) -those who choose not to follow a religion, but instead, work on developing their spiritual self -SOME otherkin (I understand many are people going through a phase, or TROLLS, or are truly therians going by the wrong term) -really, anyone who is spiritually active
No one has any right to bash ANYONE for their beliefs, simply for the reasons:
-I’ve never heard of that/this is a recent made up thing —– I bet most people haven’t heard of many religions, but that doesn’t mean they are made up or “new.” -You must be mentally ill —– I am honestly tired of hearing this bigotry. What does being ill have to do with religion? PLENTY of people who are a part of “normal” religions also have illnesses. -You just want attention/it’s just a phase —– I’m sorry to bust your bubble, but many people who go to church actually do so for those two reasons. You also 99/100 don’t know the person you are telling this to (so how on earth could you know what they want?). Even if it is just a phase, why would you go out of your way to HURT SOMEONE, especially if they need the attention that badly? -You can’t prove it, so you’re lying —– Alright. Prove to me with hard evidence that the events in any of the Holy Books are true. Words on paper doesn’t count. I could procure that about anything for you. I could literally go print a book about myself and have a dozen men claim I am the antichrist and it could be a religion in a hundred years. -You’re damned for believing that —– So are you for saying that. Please, tell me when God allowed you to be the one exception that could JUDGE IN HIS PLACE. Anyone who says this makes me sick to my stomach. -I don’t like your beliefs, so I’m just going to insult you —–No. Go the fuck away. No one insulted you, no one called you out, so stop feeling entitled to hide behind anon and spout nonsense when no one even invited you to the conversation.
In essence, there are a lot of people today who do energy work, or work with entities, or are even a non-human entity (in a physically human body, of course).
Of course we’re nowhere on the scale near the Nazarene (Jesus), and we don’t have books and books dedicated to telling our life story.
That doesn’t make us liars.
If you believe the people in your Bible can do it, what is SO HARD about believing it can still occur?
(1/?) I’m starting with the second part of the second verse. “I’m not free, I asked forgiveness three times, Same amount that I denied, I three-time mvp'ed this crime, I’m afraid to tell you who I adore, won’t tell you who I’m singing towards, Metaphorically I’m a whore, and that’s denial number four.” “Denial of Peter (or Peter’s Denial) refers to three acts of denial of Jesus by the Apostle Peter as described in all four Gospels of the New Testament.” St Peter denied knowing Jesus 3 times.
(2/?) Okay now let’s go down to “Metaphorically I’m a whore.” He’s not actually calling himself a slut. He is calling himself a whore like the Whore Of Babylon, which ties in to idolatry. But also, Rome is modern day Babylon. Peter is the Rock of Rome or… The Whore of Babylon.
(3/?) “And that’s denial number four” He’s in denial of what he’s done to himself. Okay, but now let’s go to the chorus, “the darks not taking prisoners tonight” The Whore is also tied in to the antichrist or evil. Aka darkness I don’t think he’s literally talking about dark night time I think he is talking about Satan. And he said “I swear I heard demons yelling, Those crazy words they were spelling”
(4/?) And he said “I will set my soul on fire, what have I become? I’ll tell them.” He’s asking what he has become. He’s telling us he turned himself in to an idol. Now going back to the first verse. “I don’t want to be the one, be the one who has the sun’s blood on my hands,”
(5/?) As for the story goes of St. Peter, “All four Canonical Gospels state that during Jesus’ Last Supper with his disciples, he predicted that Peter would deny knowledge of him, stating that Peter would disown him before the rooster crowed the next morning. Following the arrest of Jesus Peter denied knowing him thrice, but after the third denial, heard the rooster crow and recalled the prediction as Jesus turned to look at him. Peter then began to cry bitterly.”
(6/?) He denied Jesus, Jesus was arrested, Jesus was crucified. Peter had the sons blood on his hands. The son/sun of God. Peter repented after this. He begged Jesus and God for forgiveness after he saw what was going to happen. “I’m pleading please, oh please on my knees repeatedly asking, Why it’s got to be like this.”
(7/7) Now as for the name Ode To Sleep. Jesus took them to the Garden Of Gethsemani. While he prayed they fell asleep. “On the eve of a day that is bigger than us, But we open our eyes ‘cause we’re told that we must, And the trees wave their arms and the clouds try to plead” Jesus told them to wake up. They kept falling asleep though he prayed 3 times. The End. Sorry that was so long.
dAMN DUDE THANK U SO MUCH FOR SENDING THIS!!! I’VE BEEN ENLIGHTENED™ THIS IS SO CLEVER
