just like shipping

actually yknow what fuck it. no ones forcing people to care about m/f relationships we’re talking about the biphobic treatment in this fandom and how lance’s bisexuality doesn’t really matter unless he’s in a relationship with another guy, and how fujoshis hate women getting in the way of a m/m ship. that’s what we’re asking you to care about, not ships

People hold hands a lot in LOTR and it’s really nice? It’s not just Frodo and Sam, but I never noticed before this reread. Pippin just now took Gandalf’s hand, and earlier he’d taken I think Bergil’s, a kid (ten, so old enough to walk around without help) he just met, as they walked around the city. So it’s apparently not weird, it’s just a Normal Thing.

Vaguely of relevance as well is the fact that Frodo says “he is very dear to me” of Aragorn after, what, about a fortnight of knowing him. I’m not saying he doesn’t have cause; it was a very crowded and busy fortnight. I too would probably call someone very dear to me if they had saved me from dying from stabbery and guided my friends safely through the wilderness.

It’s just all those ‘my dear Sam’ and ‘I love him’ that he and Sam do, even though they’re a product of extreme circumstances, aren’t even out of line with the culture they live in. They’re still just as meaningful, and I don’t think their power is decreased by that. I just think it’s notable that this isn’t even beyond the bounds of “propriety” for really close friends in high stress situations.

This isn’t where I meant this post to go, but I think this is why this story resonated with me so hard specifically as an aro and why I still don’t ship anything romantically in the Tolkienverse, because the world of Middle Earth is one where loving your close platonic friends and companions to the point of being physically and verbally affectionate is a normal occurrence. It’s just how things are. There’s a lot to be said about the cultural implications of that vs here and now, but I’m not really in a position to say it. But I think even before I knew How I Was, I knew that friends were much more important to me than romance seemed to be. And I feel, with the preponderance of love interests in most adult fiction, like Lord of the Rings was the first Grown Up Story where I saw that aspect of myself reflected.

i honestly wish that all the different shippers in a fandom can just be friends and not giving hate towards each other because they ship a ship they dont like

YEA same! Because it’s honestly kinda… silly? to be rude and hostile towards others because of… fictional pairings?? I mean there was a time where people were kind friendly and respect each other’s ships and fandom… I dunno what happened ;o;

What's mod's favorite vocaloid OTP? And what vocaloid would you ship yourself with?lol - OTP Anon

((Ah hello OTP anon! Thank you for asking!! I’m actually not sure I have an OTP for Vocaloid. There’s many ships I like! I’m a multishipper when it comes to Vocaloid so I like seeing all kinds of pairings and interpretations and there’s not really one I like more prominently than another! I’ve really liked rarepairs for Vocaloid lately though! I could list a couple of my faves rn I guess! I really like MikuxRin/MikuxLen, MikuxRuby, MikuxYukari, YukarixIA, GumixLuka, KaixMei, FlowerxRana, UnaxRana (only platonic or slightly older iterations if romantic tho), GumixIA, IAxRin, FukasexRin, FukasexOliver …I could honestly keep going ships are just too much fun and too cute haha >w< As for who I ship myself with well

Shiteyanyo is the only one for me. Idk I don’t really think about pairing myself with Vocaloids too much they’re just kind of my children. Gumi or Luka maybe?))

Agreed, Jaspethyst is underrated but... aren't they relatives?

nah man, i wouldnt ever say that pearls or quartzes or even diamonds that are the same type of gem are related because I see it as more of a race of gems (sort of like elves, dwarves, etc; they have similar features but are not all family) 👌✨

You know what I actually like Andrew. And I don’t know why esp fellow Dia//kko fans have such strong dislike, even hatred towards him? I like how he provides a different perspective on the place of magic in the current society. And that he secretly likes it and wishes he could be as brave as Akko and just chase his dreams instead of doing what his father wishes. I love his interactions with her, they’re such great bff material. (he’d be the best man on the girl’s wedding, make the longest speech ever, a bit too formal yet very touching and insightful, fuck yea)

Ya know bisexual characters can be…bisexual….you don’t gotta write them in fanfic like they’ve been Straight™ all their life but this One Person is the exception….like I know it’s wild….but their partner doesn’t have to be the only person of the same sex they’ve ever Noticed™ ever

When you gotta help your cowbae sew up his tattered serape & he be braiding your hair with pretty flowers as thanks.

(or rather he simply has nothing to do & can’t resist them silky black hair) <3

Just me self-indulging in the smol kind o daily things in the Mchanzo’s life. This is how I imagine the ship is like most of the time. heh

i don’t want to be weird, but -

Cas in S12E07: “Dean, plaid is not sexy.”

Dean in S12E08

Dean in S12E10

Dean in S12E19

I really don’t want to be that person, but ever since Cas let slip he doesn’t like Dean’s ‘lumberjack’ look, Dean’s stopped wearing plaid around him (Sam hasn’t, because why would he?). I mean, I don’t know what happens in between episodes, and apparently a lot does, but on screen, every single time Dean’s been with Cas after Rock Never Dies he’s chosen to wear a ‘normal’ shirt.

The only exception is S12E12, but, whatever, I’ll forgive that episode anything.

And, of course, for the purpose of this post costumes don’t count, so I haven’t included suits or anything, but just as a reminder, this is what Dean changed into after Cas’ bad-tempered comment - and I’m willing to bet half my liver those were not random clothes he had in his duffel - he went out and bought them, because lumberjack? I’ll show you who’s a fucking lumberjack. Dick.

I’ve actually had this rolling around in my head for weeks and it was funny when I first thought of it. Sometimes I am self-conscious of my dumb ideas.
