okay so this post is wrong but what the heck it’s a Tumblr post, right, it’s mostly a joke, only it’s so perfectly echoing an idea I’ve seen elsewhere too, from actual paid critics and academic critiques, that Hugo “wasn’t writing for emotional teenagers”, that he’d be horrified by fandom, that he was too High and Erudite for the likes of screaming theater kids and emotional teenagers
Victor Hugo knew what fandom was. And he absolutely LOVED it.
galactic discourse and conspiracy theories in star wars
[0300 tinfoil hat blogging voice] alright now bear with me everyone but consider this: you know how leia organa doesnt look anything like the queen and vicroy? what if (what if) shes actually the child who supposedly died with senator amidala of naboo and the organas took her in to hide her from the emperor
[co-conspirator who’s also awake at 0300 and had too much caf] okay let’s say that youre right - who’s her father??
[original blogger, tinfoil hat on more firmly than ever] okay hold on to your hats younglings but consider: you know how at the height of the clone wars she was always mentioned with anakin skywalker and there were all of these conspiracy theories and fansites that were convinced they were sleeping together? what if it’s skywalker! and thats another reason to hide leia from the emperor! she’s the daughter of a jedi!!!!!!!!
[obligatory nay-sayer voice] what?!?! please if the amidala was sleeping with anyone it was obviously skywalker’s master obi wan kenobi i mean cmon
[orginal blogger, now getting heated] princess leia looks nothing like kenobi! just look at old holos of skywalker and amidala! she looks just like them!!!! not to mention skywalker (much to obi wan “the negotiator” kenobi’s consternation) had a rather infamous temper and (if the gossip sources are to be believed) so does the princess of alderaan
[co-conspirator, now feeling the need to come to their friend’s aid] now im not saying that this is all 100% Proven but theres nothing that says princess leia cant be the child of padme amidala and anakin skywalker adopted by the alderaanian royal family to hide her from the emperor
[obigatory nay-sayer] okay you have me there but (!) what about luke skywalker? the kid who is literally claiming to be anakin skywalker’s kid and was apparently hidden on some backwater outer rim planet by obi wan kenobi for 19 years????? check and mate
[random person whos’s been watching this whole exchange] okay but hear me out okay? what if…………theyre twins and were separated at birth so they could be better hidden from the emperor and vader
We now have our final list of categories which can be seen here.
Rules for Nominations:
One blog can have a maximum of three nominations spanning all categories. So basically if Blog X got nominated for Best Headcanons, Best Art, and Best Edits, and are also nominated for other things, they cannot be voted for the other categories. We want to make this year more inclusive of all PJO/HOO blogs, so we’re limiting the number. note: at the end of the nomination period, the bloggers that are nominated for more than three categories get to choose which three they would like to be considered for.
If a blog, for any reason, wants to be taken down from a nomination, we will go ahead with their request. Everyone is voting for each other for any category, so we want to allow people to be taken down if they want to be!
Categories close out at 26 nominations. While we’d love to include as many bloggers as possible, typeform only allows 26 choices per category, and splitting each category into two voting blocks causes a lot of logistical issues. However, bloggers nominated for a category that is closed will be placed on a waitlist in case any other nominees for that category choose to turn down the nomination for whatever reason. Waitlisted bloggers will be added on a first nominated-first serve basis.
Please be nice!! This is a fun effort by blogs from the fandom, and we want to keep these awards as fun and light-hearted as possible!
Nominating will start now, and go on until December 3. It originally said November 30, but because this started late, we’re extending the date.
amazing how a literal adult white straight cis man with a beard can literally blog about hockey and anime titties and occasionally go on a quasi-academic theory bro rant that uses as many pomo-leftist buzzwords as possible but really doesn’t say anything that people (usually women) haven’t already been saying for decades and just generally establish himself as the tumblr version of the Sensitive Bro Dude in Your Undergrad Gender Studies 101 but the moment he tags his selfies with “she/her pronouns” he’s praised as a paragon of left thought on this hellsite
okay but isn’t it sad that homophobes know more about homosexuality than all these “lesbian sapphic” bloggers that are actually just bisexual? like if u ask a homophobe they will know that lesbians dont like dick while these Sapphic Uwu Bloggers will say that lesbians like dicks……….. They’re both homophobes But one of them is accepted. i wonder why? sounds like… uhm… validating males to me
Midoriya: All Might blogger, ultimate hero fandom blogger, reblogs positive posts, makes good gifs of All Might as his reactions, he’s the one you go to if you wanna know more about a hero (he has a side blog dedicated to finding hero stuff for cheap), over all a very positive blog with a few very dedicated followers
Bakugou: A N G R Y blogger who gives out actual good advice but regularly does it in a more than abusive and patronizing tone. He’s the reason the YFIP was created. Reblogs hero posts and only communicates in capslocks and key smashes. Has blocked more people than he has followers. He never changes his content but he does tag triggers without a shitty comment.
Ochako: would be a pastel space aesthetic blogger if she didn’t make the colors so bold and positivity blogger who regularly posts about ways to save money and live on the cheap. Regularly gets asks about how someone was feeling bad until the found her blog (she always replies with pictures of baby animals)
Tsuyu: Memes. Memes everywhere. You cannot escape these genuinely funny and good memes but why would you want to. Shitposts about adulting but still manages to give good advice. Her most popular post is a vine with her riding a unicycle and croaking “oh shit whaddup” in her most deadpanned voice
Kirishima: Fitness blogger who’s linked to his Instagram. He memes occasionally, but badly, although he’s got a few posts over a hundred notes. He always refers to his biceps as “the gun show” and no matter how many times Bakugou capslocks about not calling them that he never listens (he can neither confirm nor deny that he says this just for those keys mash moments). Retro Crimson Riot aesthetics.
Iida: study aesthetics and school advice that’s too complicated to actually follow. Has a good handwriting aesthetic because of how neat it is. Always reblogs posts concerning patience and good morals (regularly reblogs Bakugou’s angry key smashes and tries to calm him down with three paragraphs and a hands up emoji). ALWAYS reblogs Ingenium posts with his own add ons (he and Midoriya have had some posts nearly thirty reblogs long over how cool Ingenium is). Has a queue going until next year.
Kaminari: Unironic bad fashion aesthetics like neon leopard print Nikes and Pokemon art. Shitposts and memes but nothing spectacular. Has a Selfie Saturday where he posts like five selfies and then repeatedly refreshes to see how many notes they get. (Has a side blog dedicated to quotes and literary reviews and aesthetics)
Mineta: 18+ blogger all under aged followers will be blocked (he never fucking checks). Not even good porn it’s all boring or nasty no in between
Todoroki: slightly emo hipster blogger who posts a lot of “under the cut” personal rants and always gets genuinely shocked when people ask if he’s alright. Light memes but only the ones he finds funny (so once in a blue moon). Makes city aesthetics and only ever posts selfies that aren’t his face
Tokoyami: E M O A E S T H E T I C S and unironically has a Gemsona. Always gets asked if he’s a furry and he always replies that this person is testing the black waters of his hatred. Dark fashion blogger who has never posted a color that wasn’t black, red, or emerald. Reblogs Addams Family posts with #lifegoals. Thinks Tim Burton and Quentin Tarantino are the only true artists among Hollywood directors.
Yaoyorozu: study aesthetics and science blogger, she IS the science side of Tumblr. Magazine article links every single day. She doesn’t understand what a meme is and at this point has stopped trying, but she does reblog puns. She and Iida make up half the study aesthetics page. A good body positivity blog TBH. Keeps a posting schedule religiously.
Ashido: body positivity, fashion and make up blog, her positivity posts don’t make sense half the time because of all the emojis and bad spelling but her energy always comes through her posts. She posts wear to find cute, trendy and fashionable stuff for cheap budgets. Her aesthetics include runway pics and selfies taken with friends as well as her own personal selfies with her favorite outfits.
Jirou: music blogger, band blogger, playlist maker, she is 100% music with occasional videos of her playing her bass to popular songs as well as music videos from her fave bands all the time. Has a side blog dedicated to girly aesthetics and baby animals. Uses this blog to vague about Kaminari.
Kouda: that one baby animals blogger that is pure and sweet and when sent a dirty message doesn’t get it but says thanks anyways???? (Has learned to stop looking up things that don’t make sense to him because that’s what he learned what shot gunning was). Posts about how to care for your animals and is always happy to help in anyways he can so he consistently reblogs donation posts. Makes cute little doodle cartoons about animals.
Aoyama: shiny aesthetics blogger and that one gif maker everyone with a seizure disorder has learned to block. Positivity posts aren’t so much about believing in yourself as much as loving yourself like Aoyama loves himself. Multilingual blogger and has whole posts and conversations in French. Has a “Lights in Paris” post that reached over a thousand notes that’s just a photoshop edit of him arching over the Eiffel Tower with his belly button laser
Satou: food blogger who posts barely three times a week and only breaks this when he’s lifting when he suddenly becomes a fitness blog for a day and then goes back to food. Has a side blog for memes and shitposts he forgot about in 2010.
Hagakure: that one person who always makes amazing aesthetics of her surroundings and those “don’t forget I love you~ <3” posts with no less than a dozen emojis. A classy memer who has a special love for Thomas Sanders. She posts great but random shots. Nobody knows why. She’s never told her followers that they’re her selfies.
Shouji: weird animal blogger like of the cuttlefish and squid. He memes and barely looks at a blog before he follows them so he’s following seven thousand blogs and only unfollows when they’ve done or said something he just cannot agree with. He posts a lot about body positivity but never posted a selfie of himself. For some reason it’s not uncommon for his to post about hair even though he consistently says he would never do that to his own hair. Has a side blog dedicated to fandoms. Went through a really weird Homestuck phase but still in his Steven Universe phase.
Ojirou: martial arts blogger whose entire blog is overall a very nice and ordinary aesthetics blog about nature and inspiration posts with martial artist quotes under their pictures. Doesn’t really do anything with Tumblr except post his things, reblog a few posts and then ignores it for days before he’s suddenly active again. Has maybe a hundred followers.
Sero: master memer and shitposter. Is funny without being obnoxious and his puns are legitimately hilarious. Has thousands of followers but no one can find a reason to dislike him except to call him out on his sass. He claps back with only more sass. (Has a secret side blog for health food and minimalist life styling aesthetics. No one can ever know)
Diary Entry #1 - About the Blog: You are More & so am I
Growing up as an amputee wasn’t as bad
as you may think. I never once was bullied because I was missing my
foot nor was I ever treated any differently (partly because I would
never allow anyone to. Except for that one time at youth camp. I was
not going to participate in those stupid water games). I had a great
support system of family and friends and very quickly, developed a
sense of humor about the whole situation because I found that it kind
of helped me cope with it. What WAS missing was, I didn’t have anyone
in my life like me. I felt alone. I wanted someone that would crack
jokes themselves and that knew what I was going through. Sure, there
were support groups and stuff online but, it was mainly for wounded
veterans, which I fully support and think is great, but, there was
nothing I could find for me, this teenage girl that was missing her
foot along with all the other crap we went through going through
puberty, which I have pretty much tried to block out like any normal
I had my amputation when I was 10 years
old, the day after my 10th birthday if you want to get
technical, and again, while I didn’t deal with bullies and it mostly
wasn’t too bad of an experience, the loneliness brought with it
anxiety and depression at the age of 17, which is a battle I still
fight every single day. So, not only was I missing my foot, I, at the
time, had myself convinced that I was going crazy. I couldn’t turn my
mind off and it always went 90 to nothing, to the point where I was
sobbing uncontrollably (which I would later find out was a form of
panic attack) and then would go numb for days. I felt like I needed
to be in a psych ward or something.
Writing helped, as did escaping into a
good book (Narnia to be exact), and then finally I found meditation,
but that’s besides the point. I finally realized that, I couldn’t be
alone, there was no way!! And, I mean, what if there is some 14 year
old girl out there with a similar story to mine, looking for someone
too? What could I do? How could I help? A huge part of me has always
known that I didn’t go through this for nothing, that I still wasn’t
going through this for nothing. I’ve got a heart for helping people
and my story, my history can do that. But how?
When that answer came to me, I can’t
exactly tell you but it did. I was always better at expressing myself
through writing so, what better way to get my story out there than
maybe through a blog.
So, I made one.
The idea started out as just a place
for amputees but, my vision for it has grown as have I. It took me a
while, but I’ve realized I’m more than just an amputee and someone
with dealing with mental issues every day. I’m a CNA that absolutely
loves taking care of the elderly. I’m a writer who has “Get
published and make it to #1 on the Bestseller’s List” on her bucket
list. I am someone that loves to read, a lot, but has this weird
obsession with collecting books I know good and well I’ll more than
likely never pick up. I am a girl that is completely obsessed with
Superman, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and a show called
Supernatural because when I have those bad days, those things make it
better (thank you Dean and Sam). I am a girl that is in love with
love and isn’t stopping till she finds her soulmate. I am someone
that grew up her whole life in church, sitting on a pew every time
the doors were open but has come to realize that there was a reason
for all those questions. I believe in reincarnation and past lives. I
believe I am an old soul, put here for a reason. I am so much more
than just an amputee and so
is everyone else that thinks they are just
whatever it is that makes them different. You are so much more and
that’s what I want this blog to be.
It’s not only a
place for amputees to go so they won’t feel so alone. It’s for me to
be me, and it’s for me to show the world that I am, and so are you,
