keeping all of these out of main fandom tags

Ive had this draft open for a few weeks now, trying to find the right words for what I want to say, so bear with me here.

First off: In the past, I’ve been accused of using my fandom fame to “bully” lesser-known blogs or even sending my followers to attack certain people (despite the fact Ive made multiple posts telling my followers there is no situation where sending hate is justified) so I’d like to preface this by saying I am not calling out any specific blog, fandom group, or shipping community. The purpose of this post is not to cause drama, but rather to bring attention to an issue I think the ML fandom as a whole needs to be aware of.

*ahem* anyways…

PSA

Wanting to “keep the peace” is not a valid reason to shut down real criticisms of real problems in the fandom.

Silencing discourse about important issues because you “want to keep the fandom drama-free” does not make you a saint.

Dismissing or attacking people when they draw attention to glaring problems in the fandom does nothing to help us grow and overcome these problems.

I’ve heard people say that the ML fandom is the nicest they’ve ever been in because there is no conflict. Because we all ship the love square right? Because we all want to see Adrien and Marinette end up together, right? 

ML Fandom: We are all united :) love square for life :) how could there possibly be drama? :)

Wait, artists are white-washing canon poc characters?

Wait, re-posters are stealing art and publishing without credit?

Wait, there is nsfw posted in the main fandom tags where children can see it?

Wait, bloggers are romanticizing abusive ships/tropes and exposing them to impressionable minors/actual abuse survivors?

Wait, lgbtaq+ creators are getting hateful comments telling them to “stop interfering with the love square”?  

Fandom: “…C’mon guys :/ stop complaining :/ lets keep the fandom drama-free :/…”

Now I get it, online fandom is a form of escape. I fully support the idea that fandom should be a safe space for everyone. As long as you are participating in fandom in a way that DOESN’T PUT OTHER PEOPLE AT RISK, you should be free to blog in peace.

That being said, the problem isn’t that people want a drama-free blogging experience, the problem is that some people are willing to make fandom enjoyable for themselves at the expense of others. They would rather ignore valid criticisms of fandom just because the problem doesn’t effect them personally, then accuse people who continue to draw attention to the problem of “stirring up drama in our good ol wholesome fandom.” 

But guess what?

There is no perfect fandom.

If a person of color tells you a piece of content is racist, you listen.

If an artist tells you reposting is wrong, you listen.

If an underage individual (or anyone really) tells you to keep nsfw art out of main tags, you listen.

If an abuse survivor tells you certain content is triggering/ potentially harmful, you listen. (Yes, even if you yourself are an abuse survivor using a scenario to “cope”.)

If an lgbtaq+ individual points out the disproportionate criticism of non-lovesquare (and in most cases non-het) content, you listen.

Ignoring, and in some cases even arguing against these claims doesn’t keep the fandom “drama-free”. Shutting down valid discourse doesn’t make ML Tumblr a “nicer” or “happier” place to be. 

All it does is does is alienate marginalized fans who fear that voicing their completely valid concerns over negative fandom trends will get them branded a bully or instigator of drama. 

All it does is absolve problematic people of guilt and embolden them to keep engaging in questionable fandom activities because they know the fandom is too concerned with “staying drama free” to do anything about.

All it does is further divide us.

And it needs to stop.

TLDR: If you shut someone down when they are pointing out a valid, important problem in the fandom, you are not trying to make the fandom “nicer for everyone”, you are trying to make the fandom nicer for yourself. Just because a problem doesnt effect you personally doesnt mean its not a problem. There is no such thing as a drama-free fandom, and ignoring key issues for the sake of pretending there is such a thing is irresponsible and disrespectful to marginalized member of the fandom.

RickMorty Rant

I will ship RickMorty. I will probably always ship RickMorty. Ship hate won’t stop me. You don’t ship it that’s fine. Hate it all you want. Your opinion of something is not gonna stop me liking something. It makes me so mad how many people have stopped what shipping because of all the ship hate. Fiction is fiction and as long as a person can tell the difference between the two it’s all good. I’m so mad of all the ship hate. I don’t like a few ships myself but I won’t tell people to kill themselves or say they’re stupid and disgusting because something like a ship. I’m sorry it’s just my thoughts.

a helpful post to let everyone have the best possible blogging experience
  • please tag as much as possible
    • people blacklist things they don’t want to see and thats okay. whether its triggers or your ship with an age gap in canon, keep it tagged so people don’t have to see it
  • don’t tag your stuff to the main fandom tag if possible
    • we all want our content out there but keeping things like nsfw and your ship with an age gap in canon out of the main tag will keep everyone from starting shit when theyre just in there to see some good ol wholesome memes
  • don’t tag your hate
    • yes youre calling out a problematic thing in the fandom and thats cool! its your blog! but if you don’t wanna start some discourse make sure your post won’t show up in the tag
  • don’t go through a tag just to start shit
    • arguing is fun and thinking critically about the media you consume is important! but please make sure the person who made the post is open to discussion and if theyre not don’t bother them. in fact, good rule of thumb is unless theyre explicitly wanting to discuss, don’t say anything
  • be respectful
    • not everyone’s gonna like the stuff you do whether its a character or your ship with an age gap in canon and that’s okay! if theyre talking about it publicly that’s okay too! its their blog and theres no reason to harrass them about it. agree to disagree. and for that matter if you are speaking out about something make sure you follow the third bullet point and agree to disagree.

we can all live harmoniously in our own little pockets of tumblr. just shut up and blog freely without starting shit :)

Hey guys.

I tried being nice before, as have many others, and it did not work, so let’s try this again with a different approach.

So usually, I keep all my activism on my main blog, and everything to do with feminism there too, but with what happened in Charlottesville, the fact that there’s at least one Anon going around in the fandom saying some nasty things about Sean, and the fact that there’s also some nasty things being said in the fandom tags about queer characters (I won’t name names), I think this needs to be said.

Racism = Bad

If you are racist you are awful and I do not support you and I want you out of this fandom right now. With everything that’s happening in the world we will no longer coddle you or make exceptions to protect your feelings because at this point in history, we are a repeat of the era before Nazi Germany and I will not be silent and allow you to think your rhetoric will go unchallenged. Get. Out. Of. Our. Fandom.

Period.

Homophobia = Bad

Same as above, different verse. Get out of our fandom.

This is the time, people, where we have to start holding others responsible for their rhetoric and actions. I will not allow the best thing in my life, this fandom and the media it came from, to be corrupted by the racist/homophobi/Neo-Nazis of the world.

I won’t.

Get out of our fandom. No exceptions. And for those of you who might think I am being too harsh, or too extreme, I want you to look at pictures of the people who died in Charlottesville and remember that those people died because Neo-Nazis WEREN’T silenced. I will not allow them to poison the fandom any longer.

Thank you for your time, and have a Nazi Free Day.

A Tangent about Tags;

Everyone is different. People have come from all walks of life; different backgrounds, upbringings, trials and tribulations they have gone through, things others can’t possibly comprehend happening to them. Because of that, certain materials may be triggering to others.

Now I know that Tumblr makes fun of the word “triggers”, but it’s a really big deal. They can cause flashbacks to events in the past that caused someone trauma, panic attacks, or worse. To avoid this as much as possible, it is important to tag your content if it contains any material that may cause discomfort or trigger others.

Creators: This doesn’t mean police yourself or restrict what content you put out there. All it means is to label it so that if someone has blacklisted a particular tag (nsfw, tw, tw: [insert trigger here], etc.), , it doesn’t show up on their dash. This helps keep it out of the main tag, and away from younger viewers (This is a video game, so there is a large possibility that minors follow the game and its content)

Fans: Every fandom needs fans, right? Even people who don’t create things are a vital part of the community. Think that game/show/series is the heart and brain, the creators form the skeleton, and the fans are the other organs. They all need each other to exist. If content disturbs you, there are steps you can take to reduce the chances of you coming into contact with that content:

1) Download xkit or other Tumblr add-ons that allow you to blacklist certain tags. This prevents anything with that tag from appearing on your dash.

2) POLITELY AND RESPECTFULLY ask content creators to tag their work if some parts of it disturbs you. Like a creator and their work, but some of their pieces are NSFW and they all have it on one blog? Be nice, and ask if they can tag it for you so those pieces in particular will be hidden, or request a disclaimer on their blog that their work contains certain themes if they do not have one already. The key here is to be nice and polite - it goes a long way. Take every measure to handle it in private; messages are far more welcome than a public post, and creators appreciate the chance to resolve any potential problems in private!

3) Don’t like what an artist or writer puts out there at all, and it is extremely triggering to you? Unfollow and block them. Contrary to popular belief, this is not rude! No creator wants you to be uncomfortable and upset by their work, and there is no shame in unfollowing them and blocking them. This is not personally against them, nor does it need to be. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO TELL THEM YOU ARE DOING SO. No nasty ask, no callout post, nothing. Just leave - do your thing and move on. You are in charge of your happiness and well-being, and if that helps, make the parting painless on both sides and move on.

Doing these, both content creators and fans alike can enjoy this fandom and it can be a safe, fun place for everyone!!

TL;DR:

Creators, please tag your work and be open to requests from fans to tag your works. Fans, download xkit or other programs, politely ask creators to tag their work, and unfollow and block creators without a fuss if their work bothers you.

Above all, be polite, be respectful, and this fandom will be an amazing place. 

Thank you all for reading!

anonymous asked:

i think it's hard with tw because of the sheer number of characters and ships. i was kind of overwhelmed by amount of people in the trailer. i think it's also the root of a lot of the shows problems that started around s3. there were so many new character introduced then and it just kept getting worse every season. i can only realistically care about 6 characters on any given show, and each one introduced after that my level of caring is reduced by half, until it actually gets to negative caring

and i start actively hating characters not even for anything about them, just for the fact that they are another new person introduced. i think the point that i officially gave up on the show was in s4 when “the orphans” were introduced and there was actually an interview that jeff gave where he talked about them like it was something i was supposed to care about and i was just done from there on out. so yeah, constantly seeing people get excited about them on my dash can get frustrating. :/

Yeah… as actors left, Jeff just kept feeling the need to throw new ones in as replacements, instead of devoting much attention or character building to the ones he already had. And this honestly didn’t help either the old or new characters –– the new ones, who were often slightly warped copies of lost characters instead of wholly their own people, Jeff trying to fill what he must have seen as holes in the cast instead of just making the new characters their own people. But you can’t do that, because the original characters were the way they were for certain reasons, and interacted with the main cast the way they did for certain reasons, so just introducing new characters to try and fit those tropes and dynamics ends up being sloppy and unengaging.

So… yeah, I’m not sure whether there are more characters now than there used to be (like… completely not disagreeing with you, I’m just honestly not sure. I don’t really know who’s in the pack or the cast in general at this point, and I’m sure there are people on the show I’ve never even heard of) but imo, a lot of the issues with the newer cast are that a) they’re clear replacements for older characters (which immediately makes me wary to accept them, and makes their characterization sloppy or unpolished) and b) there are just too many people on this show now. Especially when you consider all the people who disappeared with no explanation (ex: Danny, Isaac) and the ones who were killed off/written out that fandom still loves and holds onto. If you try to list every main character (and… not “on the opening credits” main, but characters with major arcs/contributions to the show, who could exist in different versions of the pack…) it’s impossible to keep track of everyone.

can we call a truce?

I’m asking everyone to please stop with the arguing posts, or at the very least keep it out of the main tag. A lot of opinions are coming in that don’t have a firsthand account of what happened and it’s spiraled. Admittedly my own opinions are likely lumped in there, so I’ve deleted any related posts.

One thing to keep in mind is that there are also PM’s that no one in the fandom could possibly be aware of, so even if you think you know the whole story, you don’t. Intentions on all sides have been warped and skewed, and words are being taken out of context.

I’m calling for a truce. I truly don’t believe anyone on ~any~ side of the argument meant harm or to force anyone off their blogs or this site. It’s a tough topic and very personal to a lot of people.

If anyone has been triggered to a point where they feel they need help, please PM me (I don’t get asks like 90% of the time because I don’t see them) and I would be more than happy to listen or even just to research some help lines in your area.

I’m tagging @ronanlynchamiright, @dkafterdark, @chemicalrejectboys, @asexualmarauder and anyone else who wants to do it!

so I’m between fandoms at present, and the MCU (Tony Stark) fandom is so volatile that I keep going back with my popcorn to read through the various posts.  I just have one thing to say and one question to ask:

1.  Once again the main problem with a repeating problem I see on this tag is the MCU’s writing.  Bucky was in all of Cap’s movies.  He was his BFF, he got saved, he died, he wasn’t dead, turns out he was brainwashed and frozen, now he’s free, then he got framed, then Steve got reunited with him but Bucky’s Troubled and he’s Trying To Work Through It.  Steve and Bucky have a relationship that we all know (if you saw Cap’s movies) Steve is fully willing to die for.  On the opposite side of this is Tony who starts out his movies with his Mother having Already Been Dead.  I haven’t seen Iron Man ½/3 in a while but just off the top of my head all I remember about Tony is that he doesn’t like his Dad.  They did not play up his relationship with his Mom to any degree and sorry, my pals, that 5 minute bit at the start of Civil War does not equal 3 movies worth of time.  The average person would not take the news that their Mother was murdered well.  It’s not about whether or not Tony was justified or right or whatever.  It’s that nobody put the time in to make anyone care; the writers expected that a) you wouldn’t care or b) you’d be like NOT HIS MOM.  

2.  What is with this thing where you defend Tony by making him less capable/intelligent/what have you?  The only example I remember is the post that’s in the tag about how Tony went and brought Peter to the fight in Civil War because he didn’t expect there would be a fight?

Like, really?  Tony didn’t expect there’d be a fight?  Because he forgot about this bit?

Look.  If Tony walked up to that airport thinking that this debacle would end without a fight its because a) he’s delusional (with hope?) or b) he has absolutely no reasoning and deductive skills.  I could see you making the case that he thought his super powered friends including Peter and his cool webs would be effective enough against Steve that there wouldn’t be an extended fight.  I could buy into Tony optimistically thinking he could subdue Steve with minimal effort and so he’s like Peter your job is only this and stay out of the way otherwise.  

In a universe where Tony seriously believes that he’s not walking face first into a bare knuckle brawl with Steve and his closest buddies, I am left with no respect for Tony.  That’s naive at best and purposefully, dangerously ignorant otherwise.  How is that an improvement?

3318 Ship Week!

3318, or Sasagawa Ryouhei/Hibari Kyouya, has been middling in popularity for the entire history of the fandom, but is still overall a rarepair. This is tragic. So for a week, let’s dedicate some of our energy to this duo of battlelusting allies, in the future or in the past!

The event will run from January 8th to January 14th, and can include fanmixes, fanart, fanfic, songs, music videos, and edits/manips.

Rules:

  1.  No NSFW of these characters as minors. They have adult designs and personalities right there. Anyone who breaks this one gets blocked. 

  2.  None of that edgy sexually charged abuse crap. If one of them has all the control in a situation, it ought to be because he just won a fight. You can draw erotic violence without being nasty about it.

  3.  No ships or romantic entanglements other than 3318, even if it’s one-sided.

  4.  Out of courtesy, if you’re submitting a NSFW piece, tag it as NSFW and keep it out of the main fandom tag (or at least flag your blog as NSFW.)

THE THEMES ARE:

  1. Fight-Crazy
  2. Gold and Violet
  3. Power Couple
  4. Sentimentality
  5. Afterglow
  6. Then and Now
  7. Alcohol

And for those who don’t have time to make something for each day on such short notice, the overall theme of this week is:

Pride and Joy.

A Heads Up For My Kingsman Followers

I don’t really know how to phrase this, but I wanted to let you all know I’m basically leaving the Kingsman fandom. I won’t be posting about it anymore, I won’t be writing for it anymore and I won’t be seeing the new movie. I’m not going to explain why, it’s personal and hurtful and I’m not interested in rehashing it out in the open for just anyone to see. Suffice to say the joy I once had in this particular fandom is gone.

I know a lot of you follow me for Kingsman stuff, so I will not be bothered or hurt if you choose to unfollow now. Truthfully, I won’t even know, really, I don’t check on who has unfollowed or anything like that in any case.

I just wanted you all to know. I won’t be unfollowing anyone, either (except some community style Kingsman blogs), I’m just going to use Tumblr Savior to keep it from showing on my dash anymore. If you’d rather I did not follow YOU anymore, feel free to block me. I also won’t be deleting my fic from AO3, no worries, I hope lots of people continue to enjoy it. :)

This isn’t some kind of flouncing thing, I just don’t want y’all to be following me and not getting the content you signed up for. So here’s your heads up. This blog is no longer participating in the Kingsman fandom. Feel free to stay, feel free to go, I just thought you should know.

I’ve been seeing more shipping posts in the main tags lately.

And with the growing discourse in other shipping fandoms. particularly jacks. (Really wish people would stop sending him ship related asks)

It’s really important to keep all shipping related content out of the main tags.

Even though we have permission from the grumps, we don’t need to subject non-shippers to our content and create potential drama.

So, friendly reminder.

Ga//me Gru//mps should not be anywhere in your posts, unless it’s broken up with dashes or slashes or misspelled.

Full names should not be in the tags. The grumps don’t usually frequent this site but mar//kip/lier and especially jac/ksep/tic/eye do.

EDIT: This includes sending and answering asks!!

Posting a link of your fic from ao3? Cool take out or edit whatever fandom it belongs to. It’s usually after the authors name and also behind the word fandom.

Remember, the way Tumblr is now, it doesn’t matter where a name is in the post, it will show up in those tags.

to Venture Beyond the Walls

Hey guys, it’s Jackie, or the cosplayer formerly known as ask-irl-levi.

It’s been a year+ since my last update here.  I haven’t produced any SnK-related content in a while, and I quietly, officially put the blog on indefinite hiatus a few months ago.  Why?  A lot of reasons; mostly personal.  One of the most defining moments was when I was putting on my on my makeup at a con, looked in the mirror, and realized that I was applying it with the intent of “looking like ask-irl-levi.”  I realized that this particular cosplay had started to feel like a weird obligation, and that I had constructed an image in my head of what it should be like all the time.  I didn’t want that.

I’ll be honest.  I’m no longer as in love with SnK as I used to be.  I still enjoy it in a very passive manner, but I don’t actively seek out content or aim to add to it in the way that I used to.  It’s still an important series to me, though, in the way that a series is when you make a lot of bonds because of it.  This ask blog, and the SnK fandom in general, led to me meeting many great and wonderful people, near and far.  Some of these bonds I will remember fondly, and some with sadness, but they were and are important to me nonetheless.

Hard truth #2: I don’t plan on putting any new content here in the foreseeable future.  For a long time I kept telling myself “I’ll get back to it eventually, it’s not that hard,” but by this point I’ve accepted that this ask blog has run its course.  I will still keep this blog up as an archive of that whirlwind half a year when I was in my SnK prime.  Feels like a fair handicap to anyone who ever wants to dig up blackmail info on me.

To those of you who followed me, interacted with me, and supported me during that time: thank you, from the bottom of my heart.  It sounds sappy, and it is, but it’s true.  Thank you for providing me with the inspiration and motivation to keep this going for as long as it did.  I never admitted this on this blog, but I was a habitual tag/comment checker.  I did my best to read all of them, and I was never disappointed with the reactions.  I hope I was able to bring entertainment to your dashes with my silly shenanigans.

For those of you who are interested in keeping up with my cosplay beyond this fandom, I’ve included links to my main blog in the sidebar.  The downside: I’m not just inactive here, I’ve become inactive on tumblr in general and mainly moved to twitter.  Following suit, my main’s sidebar will link out to my personal twitter, which a publically viewable hot mess.  It’ll weigh a lot less heavily on my mind if I just link you to my cosplay twitter, @jacaranda_cos which is a lot slower and generally 10x more presentable.

Again, thank you all for being part of such an incredible, unforgettable experience.  I wish you well.

anonymous asked:

The only aggressive thing I see here is the way these people are treating the KC fandom. Because sure. Delena fans sent death threats to Nina for leaving, SC fans attack journalists with go die cunt insults and yet the KC fandom once again is the aggressive one.

These people do know how to alienate their audience in the moment they need it the most don’t they?

But unfortunately or fortunately (because at least we are used to it by now) this is really nothing out of the ordinary for us so… chill.

However what I am finding extremely amusing in this situation is not what comes out in public (even by a tongue slip up) but what led to it during to what happens behind the scenes.

TVD and TO are right now failing HARD. Many actors are coming out and begging for viewers and ratings; That shows extreme panicking.

The writers might try to pretend that they do not care about the ratings but oh trust me they do! I am willing to bet that there is a constant discussion and pressure on how to fix their mess and the only result is getting the mess to become bigger and bigger and this is turning everyone behind the scenes crazy, frustrated and irritated. It is like you are in burning building and everyone shouts “HELP” and “SOMEONE DO SOMETHING” but they are all jumping up and down without doing anything while the fire gets bigger.

How much do you want to bet that in almost every discussion about fixing stuff Klaroline gets mentioned again and again and again LMAO. And trust me again that they keep on discussing on and on about how to save their shows.

Do you really want to know why they are so angry with the KC fandom? Screw their PR and what they are saying in public. It is not about the bad members of the fandom because the TVD fandom in total has some pretty bad apples in each and every sub fanbase.

Klaroline however was and still is the ONLY fandom that didn’t serve its purpose.

But guys really …we didn’t lmao

In the writers and even in the actors eyes we are indeed the problematic child. Not because we are “aggressive” or “ill-mannered” because the TVD/TO stuff are handling all sorts of fans from every fanbase. The big difference however is that Delena/Stelena/Steroline/Klayley/Klamille etc etc have served their purpose nicely one way or another while KC have not been able to be contained in a form that would be complacent and convenient for the writers.

The other fandoms gave them the attention, they gave in under the writer’s push every single time, they gave to the writers exactly what the writers asked. Let us face facts. The Klaroline fans… didn’t. The problem these people have is not the attitude the bad apples of the KC fandom have; it is the fact that the KC fandom remained loyal to the ship but once the shows started going to shit without any Klaroline in the horizon the KC fans simply said… fuck it. And not only they said it but they also did it. You see words are easy and each fandom uses them even as threats but the KC fans instead of words used actions and made their promises come true and that must have stung really badly because it was not expected. The writers and the actors were sure that sooner or later the KC fandom would either give in or fade away. Well it didn’t. The KC fans refused to follow the pattern the shows demanded from them especially after the fans have been treated badly for so long. Any other fandom (like all the other TVD/TO fandoms have done so far) would either plead with the writers or rage on (while still sticking along for the ride) or follow directions based on false promises. Delena had to lose Nina in order to retaliate. If Nina had stayed even if Delena was to be destroyed they would still be remaining loyal to the show and follow whatever Plec was to give them, either good or bad.

Klaroline is the only fandom that has managed to turn fanon into actual parsonal canon for the fanbase and to continue shipping without supporting the actual shitty canon Plec gives. The KC fandom speaks up, trends, shows its strength with no scenes and without believing false promises anymore. That is like a punch in the gut for the the TVD/TO writers. Plec wanted the support of the KC fandom. She wanted our devotion, our aggressiveness, our passion, our voice, our dedication but she wanted all those things in her own terms. But the KC fandom didn’t just retaliate but managed to be force to be reckoned with under circumstances that would have made other fandoms certainly give in. And that affected the presence of the shows in the media and their general standing.

Just how annoying must it be for the writers and the actors to be reminded of their bad judgement when while the shows are tanking the interviewers and the media and the fans keep on asking and reminding them about …Klaroline. Seriously. It must be their nightmare. Klaroline here there everywhere. The writers want to push their plots and new ships and the noise in the front and background keeps on being Klaroline lol.

All the above have managed to anger and frustrate the writers and the actors. KC is hindering a lot of their plans. The Klaroline fandom is not going anywhere. The Klaroline fandom is a thorn in their side. And a constant pain for them. They surely keep talking and even nagging behind the scenes for their rebel child LMAO.

And I for once I am very happy for this. Call me a sadist or an aggressive asshole but I admit it. I am. And the fact that all their inside annoyance comes out unintentionally in a time where they obviously need this fandom the most is even more funny to me. Because it shows to me the pressure they are under. The thirst is real. And after everything that has happened in the past this is like a winning parade for me and not a source of discomfort.

And guess what. The Klaroline fandom will still remain -even without scenes- active and vocal and united when everything in TVD and TO is currently burning and crushing.

And since I am not attached with the shows anymore but I am still a Klaroline shipper this is bringing me great enjoyment lmao…well I am just standing in the sidelines and I am observing. I am not actively doing anything to harm the shows. I do not ramble on in twitter. I do not affect the twitter ratings. I am from Europe. I do not affect their live ratings. Basically I am just pointing and laughing from my own personal blog in tumblr. I am not involved or going to show any ounce of support to shows of no quality and to people that have disrespected my fandom and me as an extension; However that apathy I have is spreading like a wildfire to everyone nowadays and no one seems to care about these shows so if by their book that translates as aggressive then so be it.

Aggressive is it? I so am. And in all honesty I would take honest aggressiveness over constant passive aggressiveness and patronizing every time of the day.

hi there! i got pq so i thought i should drop you a message because i'm realllly loving it so far but before it was released in english i was kinda skeptical because of fandom negativity but following your blog helped block that out and let me decide for myself if i'd like it or not and i did! so thank you ever much!

Seriously, the negativity in the English Persona Fandom as of late is kinda sickening. Glad so many people seem to enjoy Persona Q regardless. It’d be a shame if this game had been killed by bad publicity from people who never even played it.

This Fandom has just incredibly high standards when it comes to the games’ quality (which admittedly is because Atlus set the bar very high with P3 and P4. It’s actually no wonder the fandom is skeptical of anything that seems different now, after two so polished games of the same formula that worked so incredibly well.) Unfortunately, the standards are not so high when it comes to nettiquette among the fandom members or respecting canon itself… Which is why I kinda keep out of the tags nowadays.

Arrrgh! Enough of my pointless rambling! Back to Persona Q!

You know, some reviews complain about the game not taking itself as seriously as the main games do (which is the same complaint people had about Persona 4, go figure), but whenever I read that, I just remember a comment of series’ director Katsura Hashino, which he made on an interview about the decision to make P4:Dancing All Night. “Life is grey and hard enough nowadays. I wanted to make something cheerful and uplifting, that could give players a break from all that is going on in our world nowadays.”

Given what is going on in the world right now… *glances onto dashboard extremely briefly* *looks away* I think Hashino is right about putting out games like PQ and P4D right now, rather than getting straight to P5. We need the fluff. We need the bright and colorful. We NEED to be reminded that we’re allowed to just kick back and have fun sometimes without the constant, overshadowing presence of something dark and horrifying. We seriously need it. 

So yeah, guys! Enjoy your game! Enjoy it fully! It’s nice to be lifted out of the depressing reality into a colorful festival for once in a while! :-)

Finally someone who is over 20 and likes Riley X Lucas. Tired of seeing all RxL shippers are naive children

You know, there are more Rucas shippers that are over 20 than you would think!

 I think that this fandom in particular has a real problem on both sides of the ship wars with calling the other side ‘naive children’. The fact of the matter is that both camps have shippers of all ages. There are a TON of younger viewers in the fandom and they exist as Rucas, Mucas, and Filey ect. (using alternate ship names to keep this out of the main tags) shippers in equal amounts. The number of adult viewers is smaller but still a substaincial portion of the fandom and they exist in the different ship camps in equal amounts. 

REBLOG THIS IF YOU ARE 20+ AND A RUCAS SHIPPER

I debated for awhile about whether to save this set of CAPTAIN AMERICA RECS for when I had a bigger set of recs, for more easily keeping things in one place, OR to post in smaller batches as I go along. Ultimately, I decided on smaller batches because a) I know I wanted fic NOW NOW NOW when walking out of the theater and b) I just work better that way. I’ll put them under the “#captain america fic recs” tag, though, they may not necessarily always be about Steve Rogers himself.

Basically, I walked out of the CA2 movie and wanted ALL THE FIC ABOUT ALL OF THEM and immediately dove into the fandom. I’m pretty good with just about any mixing of the main four characters from that movie, but I’m extra partial to Steve/Bucky and Steve/Bucky/Natasha. There will be as much Steve/Sam as I can find and every bit of FRIENDSHIPS!!!!!11 that I can hunt down, given that that was the tone of the movie and I loved it for that. (But my shipper heart does not lie about what it wants, either.)

Spoilery fics will be clearly marked, I will organize them as best I can (by canon compliant vs spec fic vs AU first, then by pairing) and probably cry a lot about the fics, even if the recs are shorter than usual. OKAY, HERE, HAVE SOME FEELS AND PORN.

“What’s twitter?” Steve asks, face perfectly innocent. Tony makes a distressed noise. “Don’t worry your precious antique head over it, Cap, although while we’re speaking of technology and your various problems with it, you didn’t think to call? Maybe just once? Real quick, thirty seconds tops, little bit of a warning before Helicarriers came crashing out of the atmosphere?” “I’m still having trouble with my phone,” Steve lies. Screw Natasha, he’s great at this.

It’s a nondescript sort of a Wednesday morning when the Winter Soldier walks into SHIELD headquarters, bold as brass, and announces his intention to surrender.

The man who used to be Bucky Barnes lined up his shot. His finger twitched, only once, very precisely. Help me, the bullet sang. Ninety-eight floors below him, the bullet glanced off a vibranium shield with a musical ping. And Steve Rogers looked up.

“Sam Wilson had thought he had excellent gaydar. The sort of neighborhood he grew up in, then the military, a near-flawless gaydar was a survival essential. He was going to have to revise it to “has excellent gaydar in person”. Because he had never had the slightest inkling that Captain America might be gay.”
