A/N: I was working on a possible second part to Tongue Tied - #ShamelessSelfPromo - when this idea came around. Like I said, I never listen to myself, I still haven’t finished a second part to my Biadore fic. This will have more than one part for sure though.
What’s up guys! I hope you’re just as excited for TajiHana week as we are!
We are officially accepting early works starting today. Early works are accepted starting a week before the official ship week, which in this case is July 3rd-July 9th. This is also the end date for AbeMiha late works. Late works for AbeMiha week are no longer accepted.
Your works should be tagged appropriately (i.e. trigger warnings, nsfw, etc.). If they are not, they will not be accepted. Also, you should include the tag #oofurishipweeks in the first five tags, so that we and other people will be able to find it! There is also the option of submitting your work to our submit box!
This also a reminder that Tumblr sucks and isn’t displaying posts in the tags properly, so if your post isn’t or wasn’t reblogged by us, feel free to shoot a message to our ask box! Make sure to follow this blog and turn on notifications for it, so that way you don’t miss any announcements!
tumblr app just updated on my phone (I’m on android) and I was like oh no I bet this is why I couldn’t tell if any of my posts had been flagged and sure enough. also they weren’t showing up as flagged in the browser the other day either so beats me maybe they just took their sweet time getting to my blog.
the two sets I expected to be flagged (6741 table scene and the breath play one) were fine (not that these should be flagged..I mean I sometimes put a tag on them to avoid people getting in trouble if they’re browsing at work (I usually forget to do this oops), but I do not consider these sensitive content by any means). gifs of the mayhem twins literally sitting in a car? flagged.
like I saw their post about it being how their software reviews images, but, uh, I think the problem may be the person who wrote their algorithm was just really bad are their job.
Thomas I hope you're okay with all the current drama, I personally believe that you did nothing wrong at all. You're always making sure you're inclusive and doing the right thing, sorry your fandom's exploded :(
Hey!! Yeah, I’m doing fine!! Please don’t worry, these sorts of things happen sometimes and it gets very hard to address and handle all at once! I have made mistakes though, so please don’t feel like you have to defend all that I do, that’s not your responsibility, and I’ve been doing what I can to make sure things were addressed!
There was a piece of art of myself that was posted a while back that I put under a Read More and tagged nsfw because it was, and it was revealed later, after the artists’ bio was updated, that they were not of appropriate age, and that was a complete mistake on my part to make sure! I’ve always made a point to clarify, if people asked me, that if they were to do any nsfw art of me and submit it, that they should be of appropriate age to be doing so. My tumblr started as a personal blog and I thought tagging things appropriately would be enough, but this occurrence absolutely made me rethink how my blog was laid out and how much more consideration I needed to be putting into my blog and who was viewing it, so I made a public apology for it yesterday (in the #TSask) and decided to restructure my blog in order to make sure this never happens again. Posts I deemed too questionable, I have removed and if they ever go up again, they would be going up on a sideblog of some kind. I absolutely appreciate those who brought this up to me. I should have been the one to catch it, and I need to be far more vigilant about what I post from here on out!
There was also the post I responded to about why I felt it right to include asexuals and aromantics of any combination in the community. I’ve been having many really awesome and respectful conversations with people on both sides of this argument and its been really good, for me and I think for a lot of them, to gain understanding on where we’re both coming from. I am so grateful to those who came to me and got to discuss with me incredibly important things to remember and respect: the early struggles of the trans and gay community, the Stonewall Riots, the travesties and systemic oppression that still happen around the world today that need to be fought. We also got to discuss issues like arranged marriages that affect people on all areas of the spectrum. We talked about different demographics of the community and where they would like to stand or not stand. And the importance of limited resources made available to people of the community were discussed with me as well. I’ve been so absolutely grateful to those of you who came to me and are still coming to me to talk through these things, because I don’t claim to know everything, and many of the discussions were ended wonderfully respectfully. In the end, obviously, I have no, or maybe just really little, say in what defines the community. In what I say, I am absolutely making no attempt to prioritize people over another, because there are some extreme things that need to be fought. I can only be in control of myself and who I deem to be valid and who I would like to offer my support. I truly am trying to put myself in everyone’s shoes and see where they’re coming from. And I am so grateful so many of you came to me so respectfully to talk! That’s amazing! That, I think, is the most optimal form of discussion for people on both sides. I don’t like seeing anyone on either side attacking each other, and it’s so devastating to see so much of it.
I truly hope this helps bring clarity for those of you who were confused or looking for an update! The internet can be a confusing place and the truth can be mangled, but I am doing everything I can to make sure I amend for any bad decisions and hear you all out as best as I can. I’m only human, and I truly do care about you and where you’re all coming from, so I hope you can all bear with me!
