no photos no autographs

I’ve stanned about 4 kpop groups in my life and I spent around 3 months in Korea at some point and I couldn’t give a shit about going to see the groups I liked cuz I had better things to do

but now omfg I wanna see knk so badly and tell them that they’re loved and that they deserve the world and I really just wanna tell them that they’re wonderful and precious or at least just see them being happy and lovely so I can sleep well knowing they sleep well too what have they done to me I was living a good life of not giving a flying fuck about that stuff and now look at me I love them so much I hope they’re happy

Long story short.

Me: *goes up to Jensen and Misha feeling her heart beating all the way up in her throat*

Jensen & Misha: *smiling* “Hiiiii!”

Me: *smiles and stumbles over her own words*

Me: “I’m sorry, I know its not pie, but it’s the closest I could find. so I was wondering what would Dean’s and Castiel’s reaction be to seeing this monster donut.”

Lol, I have no idea what Misha as Cas is doing. Feeling for a heartbeat? Looking for molecules? Giving the donut a blessing? :’) One will never know… Some friends and I were reminded of something else as well, but that I won’t mention right now… :‘P

Y’ALL

I AM SHOOK

Literally no less than TWO YEARS AGO I sent an autograph request to Andy Samberg via the cast of Brooklyn Nine Nine.

I also sent one to a bunch of other people, some of which never came back (Melissa, Andre, Terry, Chelsea) and others which came back incredibly quickly (Stephanie, Joe).

So imagine my GOD DAMN SURPRISE WHEN THIS ENVELOPE COMES, RIGHT?

And it’s got a picture of Andy, signed and made out to me. So cool!

BUT ALSO A CAST PHOTO?  A FUCKING FULLY SIGNED CAST PHOTO?

SIGNED BY CHELSEA, STEPHANIE, TERRY, ANDY, ANDRE, MELISSA, AND JOE????

ANYWAY I JUST CAME HOME FROM A WEEK OF HOUSE SITTING AND THIS WAS WAITING FOR ME SO

JIBcon 8 || My experience with Jared Padalecki (or The Story Of How I Died And Ascended To Heaven)

All right, I’ll try to explain how things went with Jared at JIBcon: get ready for a veeeery long post.

(tl;dr I didn’t think I could love him even more, but apparently it was possible and he’s a giant puppy made of sunshine who just loves to cuddle people)

Cisco visits other earths for funsies and comes across one where Prison Break the show and Wentworth Miller are a thing. Cisco returns and gifts all seasons of the show to Snart thinking he’s messing with him.

Snart immediately loves Michael Scofield’s character despite his do-gooder attitude. He likes a man with a plan and gall and Scofield has it. Not to mention he’s a handsome fella, as well. Much to Barry’s dismay Snart starts using quotes from the show when they face off:
“Got you cornered now, Cold!”
“Just have a little faith, red,” Len remarks as Mick bursts in on a bike and sweeps them away.

Further, Cisco also digs the show and the pair find themselves texting about it occasionally. Cisco still isn’t sure of the ethics on gushing over a tv show with a supervillain but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ he needs someone to yell at when Scofield does his thing.

Len isn’t a vain man, but he can’t help but wonder what he’d look like covered in tattoos and sometimes pauses the show to inspect his doppelgangers tats.

He also thinks Wentworth is a cool dude cause he gives no shits, is devoted to his causes and choices in life, and he could be a great con artist with his acting abilities.

Len is considering getting Cisco to warp him to Earth-40-whatever so he can have a chat with his doppelgänger. To gather more intel on himself, duh. Not for an autograph or photo, obviously.

With all the uproar over the all-female Wonder Woman showings in Texas this past week, I want to point something out to all the people out there who think it’s stupid or don’t understand the point.

There is a large problem with sexism in so-called “nerd culture,” especially among the fans. I had to explain this to a male friend of mine the other day because he knew it happened, but he didn’t know to what extent.

I take part in nerd culture and I see it every day, and I’ve even dealt with it myself a couple of times. It’s hard to be a woman involved in nerd culture and be taken seriously. I have seen other women be accused of being a “fake fan,” a girl who’s only pretending to be interested in things like comic books or Star Trek or D&D because they want to impress boys. I have seen women’s opinions and thoughts on topics ignored or disregarded by men because they believe these women have no idea what they’re talking about. Not to mention within the content itself: video games and books where men are the heroes, and women are always the damsels in distress. In comic books, women are drawn to be extremely sexualized, costumes barely covering their bodies, and their bodies are drawn to be extremely unrealistically thin, yet curvy and top-heavy. Remember when all those people were throwing a fit over Ghostbusters being remade into a movie with female leads? Did you really think the only reason people were mad about it was that they were remaking it? Think again. (And don’t even get me started on Big Bang Theory.)

I, myself, am involved in nerd culture. Anyone who knows me can tell you that I am heavily invested in Marvel Entertainment and Marvel Comics. I go to conventions, I cosplay, I take part in discussion boards and forums, I write/read fanfiction, I buy comic books, I do RPs and RPGs, and I have a Tumblr dedicated to Marvel and Iron Man. But I cannot tell you the number of times my authenticity as a fan has been put into question because I am a woman.

I once walked into a comic book store to buy the new issue of Invincible Iron Man, and while I was perusing through the old comics, a man came up to me and started asking me if I was lost, or if I was waiting for my boyfriend. Then, when I said I was there for myself, told me that I must be confused, and the beauty salon was actually two doors down. I have been accused of only being interested in the MCU because the “actor dudes who play them are hot.” I have had my opinions on comics disregarded by men in my own family because I am a girl, and girls “aren’t into that kind of stuff.” In anonymous RPGs, I am always, without fail, assumed to be a man by other players until I state otherwise. I have even been accused of only showing interest in superheroes because I wanted to impress a guy. (Yes – I have spent probably hundreds of dollars on movie tickets, comics, and merchandise, I take part in RPGs, I spend countless hours talking to people on Tumblr about character analysis of the MCU vs. different Marvel Comics universes and plot analysis, spend hours running my blog for my followers and my own entertainment, writing fanfiction and participating in writing events, I’ve read hundreds of fanfics online, spent a couple hundred dollars to make a homemade Black Widow costume to wear to Rhode Island Comic Con where I proceeded to spend another $200 to get a photo with and an autograph from STAN LEE on the off chance that I will one day meet a boy who is impressed by all of these things. Of course, I must have forgotten.)

Not to mention, I don’t look like the stereotype of a “nerd girl,” so I am often not taken seriously by men within fandom for that as well (that stereotype is complete bullshit anyway). And I’m not even as heavily involved in this stuff as some women are! I have seen and met women who eat, sleep, and breathe this kind of stuff! Star Wars, Stark Trek, D&D, LotR, anime, video games, comic books, whatever it may be. I’ve seen other women get treated a lot more poorly than I have simply because of the things they like! And because of what? Gender roles? Stupid societal expectations?

So yes, I understand why a movie theater in Texas is offering women-only showings of Wonder Women. Women are very much underrepresented in the superhero genre, particularly in movies. Wonder Woman is the first female-led superhero movie since Hallie Berry’s Catwoman in 2005, and that movie was given so much shit by critics and fans. Marvel has never released a single female lead movie, and won’t until 2019.

The women only showings show women that they can be powerful and save the world. It empowers little girls and shows us that we are more than just a plaything for a man to rescue or wait around for them to save the day. And it shows women within this so-called “nerd culture” that they are important too. Their presence matters, their opinions matter, and their validity as fans matter just as much as anyone else.

Hell, if some theaters wanted to do an African American only showing of Marvel’s Black Panther when it comes out, go for it. People of color are just as, if not more, marginalized and erased from nerd culture than women are. With Marvel blaming low comic book sales on “diversity,” they’re continuous whitewashing of characters and erasure of ethnic backgrounds, and the erasure/disregard for POC characters by the fandom within fanon. I can only think of two or three popular superhero movies that have come out in the last 20 years with a POC lead.

It’s not like the theater is denying you the right to see the movie, you just won’t be allowed into that specific theater room showing it. Hell, 99% of the people complaining about it don’t live in Texas or anywhere near that theater.

Basically what I’m saying is, stop throwing a bitch fit over dumb shit, go watch a different showing of the same movie that’s being offered five minutes later, and stop trying to deny women their right and their place within fandom as more than just casual participants.
