rollingrl replied to your post “anybody wanna ask me questions about what the oncelr fandom was like”

how did it work?? and for how long were you in it?

ummmmmm idk really like it started with the fandom combing over every possible scene of the onc/eler we could possibly analyze

fanart, amvs, (so many amvs) gifs, references, we were a community formed over finding a cartoon guy hot and we wrung the movie dry for content and still werent satisfied

so people made asks blogs, and then that got boring so they made an au, but then that was boring, so they made another. and another

by this point the fandom practically had nothing at all to do with the movie that started it. anyone there for good old classic original movie on/celer already got all they could get out of the fandom and trailed off. the rest that were invested in the askblogs eventually renamed and modified the designs of their ask blog boys and revamed them into their own oc’s to continue their stories

it just kinda died after that

Season One’s fics were often long, sprawling epics that focused on Derek’s relationship with Stiles, or on the dynamics of his newly formed pack. Beginning with The Sanctuary - by the first author to post a Derek Hale-centered fic on AO3 - and ending with the classic Alpha Spikes, this list includes some of the earliest and most popular stories from a growing fandom.


The Sanctuary | chase_acow | 24,522 | Explicit | Sterek
30 August 2011

Stiles runs away during his first heat, right into the waiting and ambiguously scary arms of the Alpha’s nephew, Derek Hale. He doesn’t have any choice except to submit, but along the way, he digs up a mystery that threatens his family and even the town’s safety.

Pack'verse | strokeof_genie ( @arishoking ) | 27,012 | Explicit | Sterek
08 July 2011 - 21 December 2011

Stiles does some research on pack dynamics.

Five Times Derek Growled At Stiles And One Time He Explained | Moonbeam (luvsbitca) | 45,737 | Mature | Sterek
22 November 2011 - 13 January 2015

Six events in Derek and Stiles’ life where Stiles does something to make Derek growl at him and they choke those around them with all of the UST. Then finally Derek explains to Stiles why he’s been acting like this.

headlong (I’m falling in a) | hito | 80,931 | Explicit | Sterek
17 December 2011 - 14 February 2012

Kink meme fill: When Stiles goes to college, for some reason, he has to share an apartment with Derek, which sucks, because Derek still hates him the most. They fall in love.

Blood in the Water, Fire in the Sky: A Love Story | ahab2692 | 69,750 | Explicit | Sterek
15 March 2012 - 07 April 2012

After killing Peter Hale, Derek and Stiles have to deal with the aftermath: Scott doesn’t want to forgive Derek for taking away his chance for the cure, Jackson struggles with adjusting to his newfound powers, and Lydia remains in a coma.

Derek has his own demons to wrestle, and the more time he spends with Stiles, the less sure he is that he’ll be able to control himself.

I Need You So Much Closer | lemyh | 188,132 | Explicit | Sterek
09 April 2012 - 19 February 2013

Afterwards he’d attribute it to anything else he could. Adrenaline, worry, head trauma, even maybe just withdrawal from Adderol. It was just a flash of pain, from just his temples to the back of his head. It traveled faster than Stiles could comprehend; he just felt the dull after ache as if he’d been hit. But he hadn’t. He was pretty sure he hadn’t.

The Hour of the Wolf | suaine | 54,045 | Teen | Sterek
23 April 2012 - 07 October 2012

Stiles never wanted to be a werewolf, but the choice is taken out of his hands by a series of unfortunate events. When he wakes up his life has become infinitely more complicated.

Alpha Spikes | starbeast | 70,140 | Explicit | Sterek
24 April 2012 - 04 June 2012

AU. Alphas are like royalty and are offered their choice of any age eighteen-and-up virgin Omega for each year’s heat season, as a ‘thank-you’ to all they’ve done for their compounds throughout the year. Derek is an Alpha and…yeah, Stiles. Stiles is an Omega. And still a virgin. In every way. And he’s just turned eighteen. This…is not his day.

anonymous asked:

what are the moments that got you to ship baekyeol? :)

!!!! oh my gosh okay, 

well there are an infinite amount of moments of theirs that i absolutely love. but specifically the moments that first got me to ship them are right from the beginning of debut:

***Note: i’m only doing from debut until Baek’s birthday otherwise this would be endless

1. EXO-K High-Cut Magazine March 2012 Interview [full trans]:

You must know each other’s sleeping habits, whether it being someone making noise from their noses.
Baekhyun: Chanyeol’s breathing is really loud. Before he goes to bed, he always sniffles and it’s so loud that I can’t sleep.
Chanyeol: (Countering that) Baekhyun always whimpers about 40 times during his sleep like a puppy.

Are the other rooms as problematic?
(The rest of the members shake their hands in the air) No, we all sleep happily.
Baekhyun: (Looking at Chanyeol) Maybe we shouldn’t have said it.
Chanyeol: But we love each other (laughs).

2. Predebut: MV recording/Photoshoot(?) (I believe this is the first chanbaek photo to ever be released)

3. 120401 First appearance at the airport (Incheon to Beijing) for their China showcase

4. 120417 Show Champion Selca

5. 120417 M!Countdown Backstage

6. 120420 MTV The Show

7. 120424 Show Champion Selca / Interview [x] / Ending Stage [x

(we all know Baek’s neck is super sensitive, so yes Chanyeol blow right on it)

(these two decided to show their aegyo since they’re the moodmakers)

(what is there even to say about these gifs i mean i have no idea what was going through Chanyeol’s mind when he did either of those actions lmao)

8. 120427 / 120504 on their way to Music Bank (Chanyeol always loved to hold onto Baek as if he was protecting him, especially at the airports during MAMA era)

9. 120506 Baekhyun’s Birthday Party / Star Call (this day just slayed me tbh)

Birthday Party Fanccount:

At the start Chanyeol said he was Baekhyun’s room mate and they were in love with each other. Baekhyun was waving his hands madly and at the end they held hands and said “let’s love each other” and hugged. Everyone went crazy and all the members said ” I love you” while Chanyeol said “Let’s love each other.” [x][x]

Star Call video [x] (Baekhyun was recording a video on his birthday greeting/thanking the fans but then Chanyeol chimed in, congratulating him on his birthday and look at Baek just light up)

10. 120507 Sukira [x] (FIRST radio show they appeared on. They sat together and were basically in their own world the entire time. Any time there was a question about Baekhyun, Chanyeol answered it: his sleeping habits, why he’s the most different on/off stage, his nickname being “Byun Baek”, etc.)

(Chanyeol rapping and Baek encourages him by putting his hand on him, and continued to do so throughout the show)

(This is just one of countless times in which they finish each other’s sentence or help each other out with what they’re trying to say. Not only are they always in sync physically, but mentally as well. Sometimes it’s kinda creepy tbh. That’s why Chanyeol always says he and Baekhyun are very similar ^^ )

These are just a few of the FIRST moments of theirs that totally had me sold. Also, the fact they basically know everything about each other. If you want, check this tag of mine for the gifsets I made of how they know each other really well. And this tag has a lot of my compilations of their moments since debut. I could write a novel on these two together since March/April of 2012 until now tbh lol.

Bonus: 

Naver Starcast - EXO’s Life Quest [x] (Actual words from Chanyeol’s mouth):

How could you not ship these two ;___; 

And thanks for the question!♥ 

Case Study ~ October 2011, Part 1 ~ Midnight

Very serious warning with this part.  There’s nothing that really happens in this section that would require a warning beyond the general one I’ve given, but things get very intense in this part of the story.  This was very hard to write, and I imagine it will be very hard to read.  Please, make sure you’re in a good place before you read it, and also, as always - this doesn’t reflect everyone’s experience.  

October 2010 ~ November 2010 ~ December 2010 ~ January 2011 ~ February 2011 ~ March 2011 ~ April 2011 ~ May 2011 ~ June 2011 ~ July 2011 ~ August 2011 ~ September 2011 ~ October 2011, Part 1 ~ October 2011, Part 2 ~ October 2011, Part 3 ~ November 2011 ~ December 2011 ~ January 2012 ~ February 2012 ~ March 2012 ~ April 2012 ~ May 2012 ~ June 2012 ~ December 2016

Warning: These stories all revolve around an AU world where Kurt and Blaine both have serious mental health disorders and end up rooming together at a boarding school geared towards special education.  I work in mental health, so I’m familiar with this stuff and will try to be as accurate as possible, but please keep in mind that this is a work of fiction.  There will be some angsty parts and some happy parts and many parts that are in-between, and I don’t have a definitive plan in mind other than a happy ending.

Also, Kurt and Blaine are in the same grade here, both juniors at the start of the story.

This part is PG-13, 2478 words

October 2011, Part 1 ~ Midnight

Blaine loved classes, except the last few in the afternoon when his mind typically turned to Kurt, Kurt, Kurt because they hadn’t seen each other for so many hours.  It helped, though, that last period this year was English.  Blaine loved English, and books, and stories.  They had just finished Among the Hidden, which was really, really good except the parts that were scary and sad, and next they were going to read Walk Two Moons, which Blaine was really excited for because Kurt said it was one of his favorite books from middle school.

Only Blaine hadn’t been able to concentrate today, not as much as usual.  He was feeling jumpier, like he had to get out of his seat, and for some reason everything was bothering him.  He’d been a few minutes late for breakfast this morning because he got distracted in the shower, and then Kurt had snapped at him, and then he’d snapped back at Kurt, and they had barely talked at all during breakfast and that made Blaine sad and also a little angry too, because really why did Kurt always have to be so particular?  And then he must have been in a bad mood because of that, because he yelled at Brittany this morning when she kept going on and on about Santana and unicorns, and he’d made her cry which really sucked, and yeah, he maybe wasn’t having the greatest of days.

But now it was English class, and he kind of felt okay with everything that had happened.  Actually, he felt kind of amazing.  He kept thinking about all those kids in Among the Hidden and how they never got to go outside.  And that must really suck, because Blaine loved to be outside.  And what would they do all day, anyway?  They must read a lot.  Blaine loved to read.  If only he could give them that, give them something to read.

Lilo, Larry & Bonding

Hello, friends.

Happier times ahead! Picture it. April 2012. Still 5 more years of Obama left on the clock. OT5 interviews! Australia!

Let’s focus on this 39 second video where Liam says something that sounds “American” to the other 4 and Louis and Harry, especially, find it amusing.

Liam: Hiiiii everybody who’s watchin’ this from Hot Hits!

At this point, Niall laughs and Louis is amused. SO AMUSED!

Harry notices Niall/hears Louis giggling and turns to Louis, obviously.

Then Louis very cutely asks Niall “Why you laughin’?” And they all wait for Niall’s response.

Niall can’t/won’t make fun of Liam, so Harry to the rescue!

He turns to Louis and says very dramatically “I have an American…” And looks at Louis.

Liam is genuinely confused and then catches up and makes fun of himself. They all stare into the camera as Liam tries again.

But then Louis says with emphasis on his accent “’ELLO, everyone.” 

And that’s when Harry turns and stares.

And stares.

And cocks his head a bit as he stares fondly.

Harry finally turns back to the camera, looking almost drunk.

Then literally tries to snap himself out of it as Niall begins to speak.

Liam is trying to finish the bite with Louis off camera, but every time Liam tries to speak, Louis makes a weird noise. Finally, Liam breaks and yells the bite in a silly voice and Harry is amused/pleased at Louis’ antics as he turns to smile at him.

And stare some more.

Over it, Zayn yells “A massive thank you to everyone watching this, love you guys, thanks you for all your support.”

Niall can make fun of Zayn and does by repeating “Thanks you.” Louis says it repeatedly then, while Harry continues to just!

The end. 

Except to say this: I really feel like this American/Australian/American leg of promo they did in March, April, May and June 2012 allowed Louis, especially, to bring Liam out of his shell more in interviews and with them, personally. I think this is a really important Lilo-building time period and you can really see it here as Liam is teased and after being momentarily confused, joins in on the fun and then everyone is giggling and having a fun time in the middle of a very grueling schedule of interviews and other promo.

And Harry was there to support Louis in everything he did, amen.

anonymous asked:

1 Hiiii so I’m sending this on anon bc you may want to publish this and I don’t have a 1d blog, only a personal one and I’d rather not have loads of people looking into my personal life haha :) though if you want to talk let me know! So I don’t have a big expose on L&H or anything, I just wanted to say I agree with you re the weird narrative that’s developing around this band?

2 One of my best mates worked in PR until a couple of months ago (she now works in advertising) & the company she worked for were approached & offered the chance to work with 1d – I think it was for developing the packaging/look of the MM album? Anyway what I distinctly remember her telling me about the brief was that the message they wanted to push with this album was that “the boys are growing up” (I remember those were the exact words)

3 idk if it would have been the record label or management dealing w/ that but I just thought it was really interesting. Bc currently the image 1d seem to have is a very bipolar one and none of their team seems to be making any effort to push it one way or the other – they’re still seen as very pop, very tween-oriented, yet there’s this massive narrative about Harry in the media that he’s a total sex monster (and a lesser one about Zayn cheating etc)

4 & it just strikes me as very odd that if some people in 1d’s team are after this more mature image, why aren’t they pushing the music more? Why do they still market this old, childish merchandise? Why are they still being featured in little girl’s pop magazines? Seems to me that there is a desire for the growing up narrative to develop, but plenty of people within their team don’t want to let go of the old formula.

5 I honestly think that nobody in their management has sat down and come up with a good long term business plan for them because tbh we’ve never really seen a band as ridiculously successful as 1d in the age of the internet & social media. (that’s all, i dont know how much i told you that you didn’t already know, but i guess it’s “proof” that some people w/in their brand want to change 1d’s image…)

==========================

Wow, this is very interesting, because from my perspective it has been very whiplash-inducing: With the third album you get these signals that they want to mature the band image, but then you have all of this going back to old ways, and it’s very clear the album hasn’t been pushed very effectively, and it’s all very odd. So this seems very much to be a case of power struggles between people making the decisions, who are not on the same page.

That said, Harry’s tabloid image is a separate matter. It doesn’t originate with the third album–it especially originates with the marketing for their first single, WMYB, in fall 2011, and is strongly correlated with project promotions, but it first got intense in spring 2012, in reaction to growing public perception that Harry was gay: in March and April 2012 there were many, many tabloid stories, a new girl everyday, all while Harry and Louis were being extremely transparent about their closet.

I think that their team was just extremely literal-minded and thought that the best way to fight gay rumors was to throw a ton of girls at him–without thinking through how it fit in with the band image. And so now we get some of his extremely young fans, like eight years old, who know about the womanizing rumors (even if they are too young to full understand, hopefully).

If you want to talk, feel free to send me a message off-anon!

Case Study ~ December 2016 ~ Zigzag (Complete <3)

Well guys, here we are.  This part could probably use a little more revision, but I need to sleep now before work, so…

It has been such an honor to share this journey with all of you.  I can’t believe that this story actually came together this quickly, but it’s truly been a blessing, so… enjoy the epilogue!  Notes on the story, possibly additional drabbles (feel free to prompt, although I can’t 100% guarantee!) and the AO3 version will all most likely happen in near future :-)

Side Note: I told many of you that Blaine has intellectual disability.  That is what it’s called today, but when Blaine was diagnosed we were operating under a different diagnostic manual, and this story reflects that accordingly by using the multi-axial system and the term “mental retardation”.

October 2010 ~ November 2010 ~ December 2010 ~ January 2011 ~ February 2011 ~ March 2011 ~ April 2011 ~ May 2011 ~ June 2011 ~ July 2011 ~ August 2011 ~ September 2011 ~ October 2011, Part 1 ~ October 2011, Part 2 ~ October 2011, Part 3 ~ November 2011 ~ December 2011 ~ January 2012 ~ February 2012 ~ March 2012 ~ April 2012 ~ May 2012 ~ June 2012 ~ December 2016

Psychosocial Assessment Summary:

Kurt Hummel is a 16-year old boy who presents to Dalton roughly six months following the death of his father and only remaining biological parent.  He comes here voluntarily and with the blessing of his step-family, Carole and Finn Hudson, who appear sincerely supportive.

Kurt stared at his image in the mirror, straightening his tie, fiddling with the cuff links on his tux.  He found it strange that he didn’t feel nervous—at least not about the commitment he was about to make.  Lingering in the back of his mind was a great deal of anxiety about the ceremony and the music and the reception going smoothly, exactly as planned, but Kurt was doing his best to ignore it.  Those things weren’t what today was about, after all.

Today was about them: about Kurt and Blaine and everything they had somehow, miraculously built together.

Martian mystery cloud defies explanation

New hypotheses about unusual plumes seen in 2012 raise more questions than they answer.

By Alexandra Witze

A mysterious plume that appeared on Mars in 2012 is testing scientists’ understanding of the Martian atmosphere.

Amateur astronomers spotted the bizarre feature rising off the edge of the red planet in March and April of 2012. It looked like a puff of dust coming off the surface, but it measured some 200 to 250 kilometres high. That is much higher than would be expected from the lower-altitude dust storms that rage across the planet.

“Well, Kurt,” Mrs. Faber began, sitting prim and proper, legs crossed, in her seat.  Kurt liked that she dressed well, today in a classy apple-red cardigan with beading around the neckline paired with a simple, knee-length black skirt.  “I know last week we were beginning to discuss your relationship with your father, figure out where those sparks of your condition might have started.  Have you thought about it like I asked?  Do you have any insight?”

Kurt stared at her shoes: black pumps with 1-inch heels, strapped and fastened with black heart-shaped beads.  “I have something I’d like to talk about,” he said.  “If that’s alright?”

He didn’t have to look at her face to know she was surprised.  “Of course!” she said, not even trying to mask her excitement.  “Of course, we can talk about anything you like.  Please.”

“I’d like to talk about Blaine.  I mean—things have been good.  But it seems I’ve hit a bit of a roadblock.”

anonymous asked:

so is it 1992 or 93??

Okay so basically how I feel about the years is this post here (thanks Michi) because I honestly don’t give to much of a damn about it, but since you asked for my actual opinion on this, I’m still inclined to believe that Kaneki was born in 1992 for a few reasons:

  • This topic was discussed 2-3 years ago, and I don’t know why new fans are now doubting the math that was done a while ago
  • Side Story: Rize, the chapter that everybody is panicking about, has a calendar that looks like this:
  • And people assume the 12 at the top means December, except for the fact that it’s stated that Rize’s side story takes place six months earlier than the events in TG, which takes place at the end of October beginning of November

So we either have 

10 (Oct) - 6 months = 4 (Apr)

or

11 (Nov) - 6 Months = 5 (May)

and for both 2011 and 2012, none of the calendars match the above calendar:

and it isn’t the only time when a calendar doesn’t completely correlate:

So I don’t really trust TG’s use of calendars since TG and its fanbase used to be a lot smaller (v small I kinda miss it sometimes), therefore not needing as much information (hence the lack of ages and other info in bios back in TG). 

However, I do trust :re’s use of calendars since the TG fanbase and popularity blew sky high with the introduction of the anime, so Ishida actually started including ages in bios (going back and correcting his age problems back in TG as explained in this post), and other significant number/math related elements. Plus, the calendar that Kaneki marks off with November 20th correlates with 2015 and not 2016

  • The journal (the best reference we have) says the years 2011-2012
  • And since university in Japan starts in April, it makes more sense in my eyes that you would have a journal that would run from April 2011 - March 2012, and since the panel above takes place in October/November of 2011, well

Now I will be honest with you, if Kaneki was born in 1993, I would be completely fine with it as the only thing that would be messed up is Furuta’s age. Which brings me to my next point:

  • If Kaneki was born in 1993, we missed Furuta’s birthday
  • If Kaneki was born in 1992, Furuta’s birthday is on the horizon, and personally I believe that Ishida wouldn’t include a giant poem about how much Furuta dislikes birthdays and how he wants either four times the love or hate to make up for his lack of birthdays without actually… addressing it in :re (and seeing if Fruit gets all the love or hate)

Anyways, those are just my thoughts, you don’t have to agree necessarily, but once again I would like reiterate I don’t have a problem with him being born in 1993 (he would be a cute Rooster), but mostly I feel like Rize:
