Attention all ya’ relentless Raúligans & fantastic fanfic readers! *slides thumbs under invisible suspenders* We got some biiiiiiiiiiiiig things goin’ on around here…
@seekret-fanfic & I wanted to do a little somethin’ special for our favorite followers (guess what, ;) dat’s all'a you guys ) for making our time here in Tumblr land so terrific and worthwhile! So, since it’s because of you readers that we’re even here and excited to be shellin’ out stories- we wanted to let YOU join us in our collaboration celebration!
While @seekret-fanfic and I take care of the writing; we want YOU to help us decide where our story goes! Each chapter, we’ll trade off as author, and at the end of every installment- there will be a prompt requiring feedback from the most brilliant minds out there… Our readers!!
At the end of each chapter, there will be a question or open forum: Whether we need suggestions, would like a vote on which choice a character makes like a choose-your-path a or b, or have other ideas we need from you depends on where our story goes… Our story by YOU, our radical and ever-loving readers. After a set period of time to gather feedback, we’ll take these prompts and incorporate them in our fic.
We are both SO VERY EXCITED to see where this takes our writing- and we are absolutely ecstatic to include you all in our follower-fiesta. We would love for you to join us in this party; and are so very grateful for everyone’s already humbling support so far in our Tumblr writing journeys…
Which, with no further hesitation (or shameless complimenting because c'mon… We really think you guys are the bee’s knees…): WHO SHOULD OUR STORY BE ABOUT? we’ve whittled it down to 2 of our favorite fic subjects… The sassy and suave ADA RAFAEL BARBA, or the always charming and charismatic DR. FREDERICK CHILTON. Send in your votes via comments or commentary in reblogs, and we’ll gather them all up and announce the winner! Also: we’d LOVE to hear all your suggestions for favorite TROPES and STORY SCENARIOS while we work on concreting a better base for our upcoming Raúl-tastic masterpiece!
But for real… thank ya’ll for being so dang wonderful *drags toes along the ground*, ya really know how to make our days bright and our writing flourish.
Okay this will be brief as much as possible. I have been seeing some people on here getting attack from all directions because of their opinions. What am I talking about? The Mona/Raph and non Mona/Raph fan attacking one another.
Okay let’s figure this out.
Some of the TMNT fans need to take a few deep breaths and back up. Some of the non-Mona/Raph fans have attack and said things to our wonder TMNT creators that it’s quite embarrassing. There is no excuse to attack people because you don’t like something on the show. I for an example AM NOT a Mona/Raph fan. But that does not give me ANY excuse to go and attack Brandon Auman over a silly joke. I will not do such a thing. So before you react I ask you take a step back, & breath a few times. This is not the end of the world. Things will happen on this show that you will not like. That happens ALOT on T/V shows. BUT I can honestly say this is the first time ever that I’ve watched a show and loved ever character in it. That usually never happens for me. So the creators of TMNT are doing something right. I am just not fond of Mona/Raph. That’s okay too. So those that are not fans of that coupling, just remember you are not alone but you do not get to attack those who are fans of them.
Now for some of the Mona/Raph fans
Okay listen, I have seen a lot, not ALL but a lot of Mona/Raph fans attacking those who are not.I mean I saw some disgusting and cruel things said by them. They had cause someone who was a Alopex/Raph fan to question why they were even on here. I am asking you Mona/Raph fans to please stop. You are not making this any better by doing that.
Okay where did it ever say we had to have the same opinion? Also when has it ever been said that if we don’t it gives you the right to attack us. I had seen someone on here trying to defend the Mona/Raph supporter by calling those who were not
“Children or just straight up Jealous cause they don’t get to be with Raph.”
Okay I am here to talk for and defend those like me. First I AM NOT jealous. If I was jealous I would not be such a hard core Alopex/Raphael fan now would I? Second just like MANY I have a legitimate reason to not like Mona/Raph. I like Mona, I think that she’s an awesome character but the relationship she has with Raph, well. . there is so much I can point out that’s wrong with it (but I wont here since this blog if for other reasons) So please to those reading this and about to explode. Calm down, relax. . it’s all going to be okay. We do not need to share an opinion. The best thing about some of the people I have met on Tumblr knows where I stand and have treated me with so much respect. So I ask you do the same.
See the world hasn’t ended. So how about we all get past this and remember why we are here. To support one another cause we are TMNT fans. We are a strong group of people. I also want to say to Brandon Auman, Ciro and many others at the TMNT creation world, never stop. You guys are absolutely amazing. You have inspired people like me to go for my dreams in the animation world. I started Blender because I want to get better with my art. I may never reach my final goal of being an animator but I’m sure as hell gonna try. So thank you *hugs* Thank yo so much.
Now for a group hug!! Let’s pass this around so people will see they are not alone on either side of the isle.
How Rousey fans can comfort themselves post-UFC 193
-Don’t re-watch Rousey vs Holm unless you’re a glutton for punishment.
-Re-watch UFC 157 Rousey vs Carmouche. Watch her make history as the first female champion. Remember there would be no women’s division without Ronda. No one can take that from her.
-Re-watch Strikeforce Tate vs Rousey and Rousey vs Tate 2 at UFC 168. Watch smug Miesha get her arm dislocated and imagine it’s punishment for her bitchy tweets post-UFC 193.
-Re-watch any of Rousey vs McMann at UFC 170, Rousey vs Davis at UFC 175, Rousey vs Zingano at UFC 184 or Rousey vs Correia at UFC 190.
-Send some social media positivity to Ronda or mail her something nice at:
Glendale Fighting Club
601 South Brand Boulevard
Glendale, CA 91204, United States
Let her know how much fan support she still has.
-Watch Ronda’s Trip to the 209 series on youtube. She is still in her Strikeforce pre-fame days and fans really get a chance to see her fight for respect and her hilarious, chill personality come through. Start from Ep 2 when she meets the legendary Diaz brothers at Caesar Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and stays at their house in Lodi, Califonia. Ep 3 is great- Nate Diaz receives his Black belt and after watching Ronda out-grapple guys in the gym, Nick Diaz rolls with her himself. Whenever they grapple it’s an amazing master class in technique. Ep 4 is hilarious; after Ronda helps the Diaz brothers with some judo technique, they read fan mail and everyone does apple cider vinegar shots and the videographer, Layzie the Savage, pukes while everyone laughs at him. In Ep 5 Ronda goes mountain biking for the first time with the Diaz brothers and can barely walk up a flight of stairs afterwards. Highlight is when she judo throws every guy in the gym for a free t-shirt.
-Watch Matt Serra beat GSP at UFC 69. Watch TJ Dillashaw beat Renan
Barao at UFC 173. Watch Frankie Edgar beat BJ Penn at UFC 112. Watch Nick Diaz beat Robbie Lawler at UFC 47. Watch
Chris Weidman beat Anderson Silva at UFC 162. Rousey vs Holm was not the first upset in UFC history and it will not be the last. Take comfort in the fact the very nature of fighting is unpredictable.
-Read My Fight / Your Fight
-Watch the Expendables 3, Furious 7 and Entourage. Plan to go see Roadhouse.
-Eat some hot wings
-Mark UFC 200 on your calendars. Rousey vs Holm 2 is widely rumored to be the main event. It is unlikely either Holm or Rousey will fight in the next 7 months to build even more interest for the rematch in July 2016. Have no doubts that Ronda will rise to the occasion.
In celebration of UNIQ 1 year anniversary, I would like to start a charity donation project. Of course, every gift that fans give to the boys to express their love are precious, but I believe, there is no better gift we could make to an artist, as to let them know they became people who inspire fans to unite together and do something as beautiful as helping those who in need. If it were not for the fact that we as humans were meant to love one another, we would not be blessed to love a group such as UNIQ the way us, Unicorns, do~♥
One of the ways we can show our love for UNIQ is to share our love with the less fortunate, passing along to them the happiness that UNIQ has given to Unicorns.
This is not my first time organizing charity donation even before I discovered UNIQ, and not my first time organizing a donation under Unicorn name. You can read about the previous donation post here. But this project is public one, therefore I’m thrilled to present it >< I really hope many of Unicorns will participate♥
All collected money will be donated to UNICEF organization for most needed at the moment (10/16 donation date) campaign. I will post on this blog about the campaigns I’m choosing between and you as well can suggest yours (trustful foundations, UNICEF campaigns). The donation certificate will be printed out and sent to Yuehua as a gift to UNIQ members on their anniversary♥
Donors list will be available for all donors (nickname and amount) to view as a spreadsheet. Donation certificate will be sent to all donors via email.
♘ DEADLINE: October 15th.
(I will need few days to finalize all reports, double and triple check, calculate the fees and add the missing amount etc).
