others fandom better

As we all head into the next couple years with the Stormblood release, let’s try to do better. Let’s be nicer to each other, let’s try and actively encourage each other to keep in doing what we’re doing. I’m talking to you, FFXIV fandom. In light of all the negative things, the discourse, the fallouts and the arguments, let’s just chill out and try to have a good time. Try and be kind. I’m working on it, too, I promise.

I’ve noticed a few people here and there mentioning our fandom isn’t all that welcoming these days, and that makes me a little sad. My previous fandom was never good at it either. We shouldn’t be making people feel like they have to be godly at what they do, be it writing, editing, art, or literally /whatever/. Just being a positive part of the community should be enough.

So, work with me here, and encourage your friends, your followers, your mutuals, and whoever you might come across. Tell them they’re doing a good job, that you care. You never know who might need to see that message.

A little bit of positivity goes a long way.

Tony Stark: *realizes that his PTSD has led him to put his loved ones in harms way, which he feels so bad about he immediately calls Pepper to say sorry for it*

Bruce Wayne: *doesn’t seem to care that everyone he brands gets killed in prison, actively murders several criminals with no remorse*

Tony Stark: *builds Ultron to make sure the next alien army ‘can’t make it past the bouncer’, isn’t aware that Wanda manipulated him by exploiting his PTSD until it’s too late and outright admits it later*

Bruce Wayne: *plans to murder Superman because he might be a threat one day in the future, isn’t aware Lex manipulated him by exploiting his PTSD until after Superman also exploits his PTSD, albeit accidentally*

Tony Stark: *specifically builds Iron Drones to keep people out of harms way, builds the Hulkbuster to both fight the Hulk and get the Hulk away from people, tries to avoid a fight with other Avengers, evacuates the airport before the fight starts*

Bruce Wayne: *outfits his car and plane with high caliber machine guns specifically to murder people, plans to deal with super powerful monster by bringing through a city filled with innocent people just to get a weapon he could have just picked up and brought to the monster which was on an uninhabited island at the time and didn’t seem to be going anywhere*

Tony Stark: *is aware that his trauma and PTSD is holding him down, is always trying to do the right thing and to keep his personal demons in check, always makes sure to keep others safe as best as he can*

Bruce Wayne: *doesn’t even consider that he’s going too far until Superman accidentally triggers his PTSD, is still perfectly fine with cold blooded murder even after realizing he tried to kill someone who was just trying to save their mother, also nearly kills said mother in explosion.*

MCU fandom: Ugh, Tony is such a villain. so sick of him.

DCEU fandom: Leave Batman Alone!! There is nothing wrong with him!!

I have seen people claim certain sides of these ship wars treat Keith badly, but the truth is the whole fandom is guilty of that. Two main examples include:

Kl/ance shippers: reduce Keith into a pining, constantly blushing and feminized puppy around Lance.

Sh/eith shippers: make Keith not able to function without Shiro or make his life just centered around Shiro.

I think the whole fandom needs to look in the mirror for stripping Keith from his complex character and just making him a blushy bottom in every ship involving him, when we know he’s well capable of taking care of himself and is way more than the yaoi tropes the fandom has forced him into. Okay? Thank you.

Hufflepuff and proud

Here’s a little thing I made since I just witnessed some Hufflepuff hate and I’m a little pissy. So here’s why Hufflepuff is a good house.

- Yes, Hufflepuffs are the sweet ones, the ones that wouldn’t hurt you, the ones that may sometimes be slight pushovers.
- Yes, the Hufflepuff common room is near the kitchens so we get a lot of access to food (which would be a crime not to exploit).
- Yes, Hufflepuffs are known to be magizoologists or herbologists. So not exactly the most gripping and adventurous careers.
- But they are so much more than that.
- Hufflepuffs are the ones that listen to you no matter what. They’re the ones you go to when you need to vent, when you need someone to listen to you or you need someone to give advice.
- Hufflepuffs are the ones that stick up for their underdog house. They’re proud to be in Hufflepuff and they absolutely love everyone in it.
- Hufflepuffs are the ones that flip the fuck out if you insult their friends, or anyone for that matter.
- Hufflepuffs are the ones that accept everyone, regardless of gender, sexuality, house, etc.
- Hufflepuffs are the ones that you can just be with.
- You want to sit in silence, reading a book and drinking some tea? Sounds great!
- You want to bake some cookies and inevitably get into a food fight? Sign me up.
- You want to spend the whole night talking and trying to make each other laugh? Uh yes please!
- Hufflepuffs are the ones that work themselves to the bone to prove to not only others, but themselves too that they can do something. That they’re not useless.
- Hufflepuffs are the ones that get things done. 
- When everyone else is arguing, they finish the task and sooth everyone’s tempers.
- Hufflepuffs are the ones who put aside their issues to help you with yours.
- Hufflepuffs are brave.
- They are loyal.
- They are the best friends you could ever ask for.
- People need Hufflepuffs.
- So don’t you dare insult one.

Rant over.

female characters were treated /horribly/ in most of the past fandoms ive been in (sometimes just bc they were female/‘in the way’ of an m/m ship), i’m really glad it’s not really like that with overwatch

Hey. Y’all. Please don’t bring up Mark in the comments’ section of other contestants’ videos on YouTube. That’s so inconsiderate and rude. Please. Let’s not be the kind of fandom that brings up NCT to something that doesn’t have to do with NCT.

Honestly, I feel like this fandom is turning into something weird and crooked. I thought Skam was about understanding and respecting one another despite our differences.

Expressing love for a “bad” character while also expressing strong dislike for a “good” character is not necessarily “bashing character B to make character A look better.” Sometimes it’s simply expressing one’s preferences.

I’m reading The Lost Hero again and… Wow. There are so many things I had forgotten!

Well, this is how I see Piper in my mind now. Smol kiddo 100% ready for a fight.


She’s not the kind of girl I would befriend in school though. In Brazilian portuguese we have a word that kinda fits her: “Barraqueira”.

 At the beggining of the book she wants to fight every single girl who looks at her and especially every girl who looks at Jason, and this is really annoying. She basically wants to punch everybody to “show the world she’s strong". Of course I understand that, suffering from bullying all her life, it’s natural that she’s always in a defensive mood, but c’mon girl, just calm down. Pls.

 And to make it better, she kinda demonizes everything girly. I don’t blame her, the damn Riordan wrote her this way, but WOW it pisses me off. It starts with her judging Drew by her looks. “Too pretty, makeup, fashion style. Hum, must be evil.” And this judgement is then applied to almost every female character who does not follow the line “100% good”.

 And oh well, Aphrodite and her children. Do you guys remember the Hipnos Cabin? These guys sleep all the time, and do not seem to be good at battles. But still, whose fame is it to be useless in fights? Aphrodite’s children.

 “Ah but Hipnos’ children can make the enemy sleepy, blah blah blah”

 Aphrodite was born from Uranos. She’s probably as powerful as Zeus, or even more, because as we all know, even the gods can’t escape from love.

Love is a powerful thing. Love can be BRUTAL. So that story of Aphrodite’s children being always portrayed as supermodels who only care about their looks and boyfriends and can’t fight a bug is just RIDICULOUS

Sorry about it, is just something that really bothers me.

Why do some Harmonizers and Mixers say, “5H/LM are currently the biggest selling western girl group?” Like why can’t y’all say “5H/LM are currently one of the biggest selling western girl group”. Do some of you not realize that two girl groups can co-exist at the same time? Fifth Harmony do well when it comes to streams and single sales, whereas Little Mix do well with album and tour sales.

Some comments that I’ve read (mainly on twitter) are absolutely annoying. It’s like some Harmonizers can’t praise any other artist without tearing them down or their accomplishments to make 5H seem better (a.k.a calling LM flops???). And it’s like some Mixers always have to comment LM are better on every 5H post.

Can we please praise, support, love, both girl groups? You can stan one more than the other, but at the end of the day don’t be so close minded and childish. Acknowledge the other girl groups achievements, and if you can’t then please keep your mouth shut and stay away from commenting nasty crap on 5H/LM posts.

the au where foggy nelson goes to harvard law instead and moves back to the city after graduation, whereupon he accidentally becomes the best friend of an honest-to-god masked vigilante who doesn’t even bother to inform his new bff of theoretically important friend facts like his face or name

meanwhile his professional life is going great except the case he’s working on now features one smug asshole as attorney for the defense and foggy doesn’t have time for matt murdock and the smug little smirk he wears whenever foggy says anything, there’s a crime syndicate to thwart and a fledgling superhero who is actually kind of a cool guy to hang out on roofs with and kidnappers tracking down the devil’s only known associate to evade; foggy nelson’s life is complicated enough without throwing attractive blind professional rivals whose guts he hates into the mix

ok so i was way too chicken to post this yesterday because there are so many high notes in Never Say Never i was really self conscious about posting it because i can’t hold notes at all haha but i came across the original post again and it said sing your favorite song so i decided to just post this anyway because we’re all nice here :P and i really really really like this song!!

ft. my cat Sassy! she was walking by and I decided to include her :D (i chose not to seriously sing the part where Stephanie sings the dance moves because it’s kinda weird lol)

also i just noticed that i said “can’t give up until we try” instead of “before we try” whoops
