It’s with great honour and gratitude to reach one thousand followers for my main/booklr/aesthetic blog. I’ve had this blog for almost a year, having that I accidentally deleted my old blog of 4 years. In the beginning, I was devastated that all my old personal blog that I’ve spent practically my whole high school life, was deleted and never retrievable but I with that, I took a deep breath, let go of that past, and started anew with this blog. A blog that I shared a specific passion in books, mythology and other aesthetics with. This blog changed everything. With it, I met a lot of new and amazing people with the same passion as me. I’ve found more books to read, shows to watch, inspirations for art and above all, friends to connect with. And with all that, I say thank you to the following whom I admire and give praise.
To Michelle aka @perxephne Without you, none of this would have happened. You’re the first book friend I’ve met before this blog! I credit you to helping me get into reading more, being with me through happy and hard times, and for becoming my first best internet buddy who I actually met! You’re such a kind, beautiful, sophisticated young soul. The kind you read in a Donna Tartt book. Thank you for sticking with me all this time and helping me blossom this blog to what it is.
To Diana aka @kazzriel I am so thankful that our paths crossed and I got to know you and connect with our love of A Court of Mist and Fury along with other books like AEITA and SOC. I first reached out to you cuz we had the same name lol and being fangirling best friends makes this blog worth while a lot of the time. I want to thank you once again and a million times more for the package of books you sent me! It’s just really cool to think we’re so far apart from each other yet we’re this close. I’m so ready to fangirl about ACOWAR with you!!!!
To my GF squad aka @dirtyhandsnet You girls changed this blog for me indefinitely. I never knew I could connect with such amazing friends and create a kind of sisterhood (or girlfriend hood?) with you girls. We connect with each other on such a high level that I don’t think most networks have. I’m so glad that I have such a supportive, caring group like you. Thank you and NMNF.
To Allie aka @alohomra You’re such a refreshing ray of sunshine when I met you in person! I think we could have talked for hours upon hours more than what we had back then. You’re a small piece of inspiration as to why I’m going into Digital Media Design here in MB. You’re so nice and bubbly and really cool! Thank you for the being there for me!
To Jem aka @lovesclub Thanks mom (we’ve been mutuals for the longest time and you helped me get on my feet as a booker) You’re way cooler than me.
To Simi aka @ninazcneik I think you were one of the first 10ish people to follow me and definitely the first mutual I’ve had. You always stick out to me. I always have admired your blog and it gives a smile to see you ask for a blograte and my notes (I’ll definitely pick up The Diviners just for you, don’t worry!). It makes me proud to be close to a blog that makes beautiful edits and is so #aesthetic. We’ve silently been stuck together since the beginning so I want to credit you in the growth of this blog too!
Even though she’s inactive at the moment I want to thank Jolly aka @rhyesand I’m so happy we started talking to each other! We’ve got more than a month’s worth of Snapchat streak and let’s never stop! You’re so cute and cool and smart and you helped me go broke with all the book buying but without it, I wouldn’t have gotten ACOWAR at 50% off?? Like wow! Thank you for being awesome!
To @mythologicalnet , vixensnet , and mermaidntw I want to thank these Networks for accepting me! It’s great honour to be part of your networks too!
For the rest, I’d love to thank the following people for their blogs that help me build this one.
okay i posted this and now i can’t stop thinking about what blogs the different
silm characters would run so y’all are gonna suffer with me
eru iluvitar is tumblr staff because he created everything but does absolutely nothing to maintain it and every time there’s drama he’s just like *opens one eye* “what are the kids up to these days?
ah. murder again.” *closes the eye*
eölprobably has one of those blogs that’s like “i’m everything tumblr hates. feminists and SJWS beware, you’re in for a scare”
yavanna has a nature blog. lots of cute pictures of animals and trees, sometimes selfies. v classy, stays out of the drama but has Opinions
fingon: mostly music, occasionally gay porn
maedhros: sends supportive asks to fingon on anon and then pretends it wasn’t him. questionable political views. has a separate, private blog on which he also posts gay porn (and cryptic, emotional vent posts)
fëanor: tumblr famous. always involved in some kind of drama. 90% of all the Discourse™ can be traced back to him
sauronreposts everything, never gives credit, and self-promotes on literally every single post (”follow this evil overlord! you will love him on your dash”). everyone hates his blog and maedhros keeps trying to report him but he always comes back somehow
turin has a monochrome blog with gifs from old french films and depressing quotes on black backgrounds. he only has 2 followers and one of them is beleg (although he later blocks beleg after they have a fight and the two of them never speak to each other again)
galadrielhas a social justice blog and constantly calls everyone out on their bullshit. her selfies get like a million notes because she’s gorgeous and kinda looks like she could kill you with her brain
Hi! Same anon that asked about the FNaF 1 gang, withereds, shadows, etc., just wanna ask: Do you have any headcanons about the withereds, shadows, what the phantoms are, or anything? (P. S. Thanks for wishing me a happy day! Hope you have a "happiest day"!
Oh goodness I do happen to have…a few (uninteresting) headcanons actually…So I guess I’ll tackle these in the order you asked! These are all just for this blog’s AU, of course, so no worries if they collide with some of the canon or with other people’s universes
Since W.Bonnie and W.Chica both have missing hands, W.Foxy and W.Freddy are always nearby to help them if they need it
W.Chica is really proud though and does her very best to do things herself
W.Bonnie is very sad about the loss of his face, and thinks about it constantly, often trying to find “replacements” for his face! Some of you guys might remember from one of my old posts that sometimes he wears a paper plate with a :3 face drawn on it
W.Freddy is a very Tired Man, choosing to mostly watch the Toys perform on stage as opposed to singing himself. I think of it like he’s peacefully retired
W.Foxy is the saltiest guy most anyone will ever meet, he wants to go places and have his Pirate Cove back but the world just keeps denying him
Theseguys are both mute, so they communicate non-verbally. Sometimes that means flashing shadowy words up in the air, other times it means sign language
Shadow Freddy (Shreddy lmao) looks like he’s constantly crying, but has never told anyone why…
Both of their bodies can be easily manipulated into different shapes, although Shadow Bonnie is a lot better at shapeshifting than Shreddy is!
Shadow Bonnie is………ridiculously tall, and Shreddy is a smol
Shadow Bonnie can teleport! But the process is rather painful so they don’t do it often
Both of them are very old, and have been around for decades as of the time of Fazbear Fright
In addition to not being able to speak verbally, neither of them make any noise at all when moving. They have accidentally snuck up on many of their friends because of it
Both are very elusive and will only appear to those that they deem trustworthy, or intriguing in some way
They’re all essentially ghosts of the former Fazbear crew. Not every animatronic became a phantom after being destroyed, only a select few!
When they first woke up as phantoms, all they remembered was the pain of dying, so the reverted to a more primal state of personality. As of yet, only some of the phantoms have managed to remember their past selves to become who they used to be.
This is why Phantom Balloon Boy (PBB) screams so much! He’s trying to remember his past, but more often than not he resorts to the screaming
Being ghosts, they cannot touch anything corporeal without it meeting special standards
With enough practice, the phantoms can learn to summon ghostly objects from their past, one of the best examples being Phantom Chica’s ghost cupcake (which she’s very proud of btw)
It is said that once the Phantoms are able to complete whatever unfinished business they had on Earth, they will cease to exist here, having moved on. Most of them haven’t found out yet why they became ghosts, since they can’t even remember clearly when they were alive. Who knows if they’ll ever reach their goals?
Anyways that’s all I have for now! I know I’m leaving a bunch out, definitely, but hey, I’ve never been too great at communicating my thoughts! Thanks for asking about these guys!! Goodness knows I think about this AU every waking moment of my life And thank you! I’ll try and have the happiest day I can!
you don’t learn to love her. because learning to love her is like turning her into a routine you get used to, like you’ve been trying and you’ve just now seen parts of her you’ve never noticed before or maybe didn’t pay attention to. like the bad habit you’ve picked up and only just now become aware of the burning cigarette between your fingers, the money you’ve lost, the need for a fix, the jagged edges of your nails. no, it doesn’t work that way.
so, let me tell you what she’s like.
she’s always. not just coming to. not just on her way. you love her by means of night and day. she’s constant. you trace forever on her skin when she sleeps, the expanse giving you a universe that waits for you in it, just under your fingertips, and you want to explore the things that have inherently existed there. beautiful things, you’re sure. and so you don’t teach yourself to look for all the ways you can love her because you just do, like things that begin and end only to begin again— always the sunset, always the sunrise.

Thank you guys SO so much for 300 followers on here. It really does mean so much to me that y'all enjoy my blog enough to want to follow me. I never ever expected this blog to get as big as it is now. I honestly was just here to post occasional fan art and stuff for Jack in the beginning. I didn’t know that people interacted with each other on here, and was too shy to even attempt to make friends anyway. But I’ve obviously overcome that mindset, because now this blog has hundreds of followers, and I’ve made so many amazing friends on here. Again, thank you guys for being as amazing as you are and for following me. I can’t believe that I get to be part of such amazing communities :)
As a thank you, I put my art skills (ish) to use and made this (sorry for the weird coloring, I had bad lighting when I took the picture haha):
I made it the color theme of my blog, as you can probably see. This is for you guys. I wanted to show my appreciation, and @nerdqueeniplier gave me the idea to do a painting of some sort. So here you go everyone! :D
I love each and everyone of you, even if we don’t talk or you’re not as active as some others. Just the fact that you clicked that follow button means the world to me, so thank you <3
And now…I’m gonna tag every. single. one. of. you! (takes deep breath)
We have a new season of The X-files, people! Season 11 is coming! We will have shooting days with candids, fake call sheets, many-many gates, hundreds of theories, huge press tour, interviews, photo shoots, tonnes of fuckery and of course sleepless nights. We will have months of new experiences to share and 10 new episodes of our favourite show! 10! Not 6, but 10! Just think about all the crazy good things we shared after Season 10 was announced. On the road leading up to the new season, new people joined the fandom, new friendships were born and people were here to discuss all type of topics. It can always go a bit too crazy, but hey, this is a fandom. We are weird, so there is that. Tumblr is a sanctuary to everyone.
Or it was, until a couple of months ago the fandom has been divided and not because of the ships, but because of egos and personalities. Out of a sudden, we had a Tumblr police going around policing & bullying people. They were yelling at people about respect while attacking them why they live in a fantasy world and calling them names. People deleted their blogs, because of this! I’ve never seen so much hate in this fandom before and I don’t want that darkness in my home, again.
Now, they want to come back, ‘cause The X-files is back, and pretend like nothing happened. Well, I’m sorry but “You’ve made your bed, now lie in it.” You called people stupid, delusional, crazy - to say the least offensives - you created a blog for the sole purpose of mocking people, you hated on David, you said Gillian would never do X-files again, you said Gillian and David’s relationship is toxic. Feeling superior, bullying and mocking other people’s hobbies, making fun of their obsessions and enjoying all of this is not okay. I don’t think this behaviour should be forgiven, ‘cause if you did it once, you’ll do it again. So, please just stop creating another drama the deeds are done.
The two sides could exist next to each other, you just have to stop obsessing about the other side. You clearly stated your beliefs, your interest, stick with it. At least have the guts to stick with what you preached for months! I made the choice to have no interest in some topics and bloggers, you should do the same. Everyone should do that, instead of debating why people treat them the way you do. (Hint: not because who you ship, it’s never been about that)
I’m not gonna ruin our - probably - last chance to enjoy the crazy ride, this new season will bring. I only follow bloggers who don’t go around judging people, who treat each other with respect here. I have my happy place and I’m perfectly ready to lose our shit together, fangirl and not sleep once August comes. I advise all of you to do the same! This place can be the best, I promise you!
This blog will stay drama-free from tomorrow - cause let’s be honest, I might have to reply to some messages 😂 - and will only concentrate on joy, positive energy, love and a good spiralling is really overdue, don’t you think? This is what I’m here for. Bring on Season 11! ❤️❤️
i'm sorry it why do you ship junkrat with mei?? if you haven't noticed or actually played overwatch, you'd know that mei hates junkrat, they despise each other and they're total opposites. and no, opposites don't always attract.
Ladies and Gentleman, we have a first!
In the two or so years I’ve had this blog, I’ve never had an antagonistic anon before. Then again, I only ever started branching out into non-Soul Eater things in September, so maybe this is just what happens when you start to create content for bigger fandoms?
First things first: If you don’t like the content I post, I suggest that you either unfollow my blog or use blacklist to block the tags for content you don’t like. Your Tumblr experience is curated by you. I’ll tag my content to help you blacklist topics you wish to avoid, but it’s ultimately up to each user to take the necessary steps to tailor their dashboard.
Secondly, in sending me a rude ask, you have given me an excuse to talk about a favorite ship of mine. So buckle up, we’ve got a long post incoming!
Why ship Junkrat and Mei? Why ship any two characters?
Take a gander at this post by @chaoticlivi. It’s a pretty exhaustive list of reasons people get invested in the relationship between any two characters. They span from aesthetic and visual tastes (these two look great together!) to more in depth, thematic ones (their relationship embodies a theme I care about). Basically, there are many many reasons to love a ship, and canon rarely has much to do with it.
In general, canon is a box of scraps. This is especially true for Overwatch, which despite its exhaustive lore leaves many holes in character stories and relationships. Nothing in the game itself (which I do play often, btw) is ‘canon.’ The voicelines you hear haven’t actually happened. They are meant to give us insight into the characters, their histories, and their relationships, but you can’t quote them as something Mei or Junkrat have actually said.
In-game content is also in flux. As more shorts and comics come out, as the actual Overwatch lore grows, the game evolves too. It’s possible what’s canon within the game now will change later on.
What I’m saying is, you can point at two voicelines and wave around words like ‘hate’ until you are blue in the face, but that won’t 1) make it canon that Junkrat and Mei will be at odds forever or 2) make me any less likely to ship them.
Now that I’ve got the “shipping doesn’t need a canon basis and Overwatch shipping is a crapshoot built on nearly nothing anyway” part done, I can actually talk about Mei and Junkrat.
Sorry for the late post. Lost my original post, so here is the do over of my thoughts and observations.
My first Con and honestly did not know what to expect. So glad I went and now can cross this off my bucket list. Almost did not make it as a 100’+ tree came down in my yard a few days before but I was determined and with a little luck, made it happen.
Much has already been said about the panel so I won’t rehash too much. The lines. OMG the lines. They were as terrible as everyone said, but in the end definitely worth it. A man next to me and all alone said he came for his wife who hated crowds. Ahhhh. He also came for the games at the con but still! I was impressed. The first pic shows the sea of people there. Unbelievable. It also shows my empty seat far right in the FIRST ROW!!! The second shows how close the first row was to the stage. Yeah I was star struck. Sam was very playful and his accent amazing, and the kilt twirl a er um…visual treat. Cait was all legs and more legs and beautiful skin. I found myself mesmerized by them and not even wanting to look at the large screens but to just watch them in person. Figured I could see the tape later but could never really look at them real time probably ever again. Unfortunately my iPhone pics are crap, but @sileas84 had some good pics. Many touching moments and then it was over too soon. I remember being surprised it was mainly made up of audience questions.
Then over to get my first photo which was with Sam. It was very disorganized, the lines were too long and it started to heat up with all the bodies. Fun talking in line with others and listening to the conversations of this diverse fandom. Yep some scary. Finally to the front of the line and a quick peek in the small mirror showed that the rain, the lines and now the heat had me looking my absolute best, but hey, it was only Sam! My first glimpse of him, he was wiping the sweat from his brow (hey I’ll throw that rag away for ya 😜). It was click, next, click thx you verra much and I was quite honestly a little speechless (so not me). He of course has a smile and a big hello for everyone. He was skinnier than I expected from his VF pic but honestly you just can’t imagine how handsome he is in person. Sucks the air right of out of ya. No lie. In my last 10 seconds with him, I thanked him for something and then remembered I had brought a gift. I tried to give it to him, but a handler whisked it and me away as I heard him say “for me?”. Smooth Perri. Not.
Then off to stand in line again for pic with both Sam and Cait. More conversations with new friends in line and lots of positive reinforcement that I am not nearly the most crazy fan out there. Seriously. My girlfriend was with me in all three pics, but in this next one, I did not get to say anything to Cait as I was next to Sam and she was next to Cait (ok yeah I told her where to stand). Again very rushed, but Sam makes a point to say to me “thank you for the gift”. I fell over that he remembered it was me and that he had not said thank you before I was pushed out for the next person. It was genuine and I was impressed. I looked to see if the gift was still there in that area (I had put it in a distinct blk/wh polka dot nylon bag) and not seeing it, I asked the handler who said it had already been taken upstairs. Not sure what that means exactly…
Back in more lines for last pic with Cait only. Feet are screaming at me by now. But heck, now I get to meet Cait! I have to tell you I was not prepared. Guys I was gobsmacked by the man that is Sam Heughan, but I was blown away by the devine human being that is Caitriona Balfe. She is charming, engaging, warm, friendly and immediately puts you at ease not to mention drop dead gorgeous. What a treat. Who could not love and admire her. In my 5 seconds with her I think I thanked her for a bunch of stuff that I hope made sense and then she said she liked my bag. That jogged my memory to tell her that I had left a gift for her in an identical blk/wh polka dot bag earlier with Sam and to look for the bag that matched her socks (she must like polka dots) and again I was sent on my way.
All in all the photo ops were worth the wait to meet SC up close but I was oh so glad my autograph session was the next day as I am sure my dogs would not have survived another 69-90 min line. All I could focus on was getting to my room and the bottle of wine we had the forethought to have waiting for us.
Then time to go meet the other ladies from Tumblr and swap stories and down a few margaritas. What a hoot! This by far was one of the highlights of the trip. To finally meet some of you was very special for me. Having only found your blogs about 10 months ago, I felt kind of like an outsider going in but your warm reception touched me greatly. You guys are the best and we can never underestimate what we have here. I hope we can meet again someday and can be joined by others that missed this current meeting. As Val offered her place in NY, Christine hers in Hawaii, I offer mine in the wine country of Sonoma CA for a future get together or anyone that is here for a visit. Muah my lovelies.
Next morning off to more lines to get my autographs. This time I notice a couple of chairs inside the room, so I ask if I could sit down there until my spot in line gets to the front, and to my shock they said yes! Of course, it was 12’ away from Sam and for 30-45 mins I had the absolute pleasure of watching Sam be gracious and charming with each and every one of his fans. What a treat that seat was! Then it was my turn and Cait was first up. I had a few moments to chat with her and to my surprise actually got tongue tied a bit. She was beyond gracious and then they moved me along to Sam. I remember his hair still looked wet… oh sorry. When I figured out how to make words come out of my mouth again, I asked if he would sign in a darker color than Cait did and would he also write my name and showed him how it was spelled. Of course his handler said “No names, signatures only”. Whatever. So I thanked him again for his portrayal of JAMMF and for his charity work and told him I was a first time peaker. Then he reached out to shake my hand in goodbye and said “thank you Perri”. What??? He just said my name. Yeah I heard him. Ok now I am dead. I literally floated out of there, forgetting my backpack on the chair and my girlfriend is laughing at my obvious fangirling. But I didn’t care. Nope. Nada. Not one iota because I got to meet and talk to Sam Heughan and Caitriona Balfe! Later that night, to my absolute delight I see that he did slip my name in there! Sometimes he just does what he wants. Ahhhh.
So that is my story. I am so glad I went and I have two big takeaways from this experience.
1. What we have here with each other is special and if we ever get the opportunity to meet with one another, we gotta make it happen. I will treasure always my time with you ladies. I love you 😘
2. I now feel differently about Sam and Cait. Before they were the wonderful stars of my favorite TV program. But now, now they are very special human beings to me and I feel very protective of them. It is hard to explain. Much more than just stars of the program who do wonderful charity work. Now they are multidimensional x 1000 and so deserving of respect and space to live their lives. Interestingly, I do not even feel I need anything further from them. I don’t need to now where they are or what they are doing. Meeting them and talking with them albeit briefly, changed my perspective somewhat. I know what I saw and I know what I felt. I am of course interested if they want to share, but most of all I want to give them their space and hope that all their dreams and aspirations come true. We always comment that all of their friends have nothing but good things to say about them and know I know why. Because they really are all that and more.
PS. If I ever figure out if they actually received the gift I’ll let you know because I said it was from all of us. 😘
Request: Jughead imagine where you get jealous when he spends a lot of time with Betty so you kiss him a lot
Could I request an imagine where the reader and jughead have an argument. It can be about whatever you want but can it have a happy ending xx
Word count: 815
A/N: Sorry this is a bit of a shorter one, I didn’t go into much detail as I usually do with backstory to save time. I also combined two prompts, hope that was okay. They both seem to fit as I was writing. (Working on Butterfly and the Beanie part two, but still wanted to get a request out!)
“Hey, Juggie!” you hear a voice call from down the hall of Riverdale High. It’s the end of the day and you and your boyfriend have plans to people watch at Pop’s before heading to your place to watch some movies and get some well deserved alone time. You haven’t had the chance to see him outside of school in weeks because of stuff going on at home.
You turn to see who called his nickname, and none other than Betty Cooper is walking towards you.
“Hey, Betty.” Jughead replies.
“I have some new information.” she says cryptically.
Words seem to pass between them without being spoken. You stare at both of them, wondering what the hell is going on.
“Sorry, (Y/N), I gotta go, I’ll call you later.” he says, giving you a hug and quick kiss on the forehead before walking off with Betty.
You barely have a chance to get a word in before they’re walking out of the building together to do who knows what.
You don’t see him for a few days after that, the weekend approaching and going without even a text. You feel lonely, and angry. What did Betty have that you didn’t? It’s like he’s been purposely avoiding you to hang out with her, and you didn’t like that. You didn’t care so much that they were friends, but that you were his girlfriend, and he was starting to spend more time with her than with you.
It’s a late monday night and you decide you need answers. You can’t handle the radio silence any longer. You’ve been dating for a little over a year, and you deserve to know what’s going on. He knows about your parents and is helping you through the divorce, he knows about how you lost your job, and all the other shit that piles on from being a teenager, yet he’s barely let you in at all.
You pull out your phone, writing a text.
‘I need to see you, now. We need to talk.’ is all it says.
You press send.
He shows up at your window a few minutes later, since you only live a few blocks apart.
You open the window for him, letting in the cold night air.
“What is it? What’s wrong?” he asks, wiping himself off as he steps inside.
“What’s wrong? I haven’t seen you in a week, Jughead.” you say, trying not to get mad.
He just looks at you, unable to get any words out.
“I’m sorry.” he finally says, looking down.
“Sorry?” you question, mocking his response, your voice becoming a bit more powerful. “You’ve ditched me for what? For Betty?” you accuse.
The name hangs in the air between you, an elephant in the room.
“(Y/N) are you insane? Of course not. You’re my girlfriend.” he says, trying to reach out to you, but you back away.
“Sure doesn’t feel like it.” you say, venom in your voice.He may not realize it, but not seeing or talking to him hurts you. It hurts you more than you can bare.
You turn away from him, unable to look at his face anymore.
“I love you. No one else.” he says, firm in his words. Regret is written all over his features, and now he knows that he’s done something wrong, he knows that he’s hurt you. He doesn’t have it in him to fight, not when he knows that he’s in the wrong.
“Prove it.” you say, only glancing back at him. Tears that you didn’t even realize were there began to form in your eyes.
Before you have a chance to say anything, he turns you back around and looks in your eyes.
You look up at him, allowing the touch.
He brushes a strand of hair that’s fallen in front of your face behind your ear, and the hand moves to hold the back of your neck.
He moves closer, the other hand going to cup your cheek as he presses his lips to yours.
He kisses you with a passion you’ve never felt from him before, and it’s like you can tell that he wants you with every fiber of his being.
One of your hands tangle themselves in his hair, pulling him closer.
He breaks away only to lead you to the bed, pulling you close. You cuddle up to him and start to kiss him again, wrapped in his arms.
“I’ve missed you so much,” you whisper against his lips, “don’t you dare think of ditching me again.” a smile creeps over your face as he pulls you closer against his body.
“Never.” he says back, holding my face once more so that our lips don’t fall too far from each other.
The past few weeks melt away, because in this moment, he’s there and he’s yours.
I wrote this for@scenarios-on-ice, for one of her head canons about training with Yuri. It was supposed to be just that but it’s out of control now so it’s basically a Reader/Yuri P fic where you’re part of YOI.

попутчик: (n) stranger you
connect to on a trip
Unlike a travel companion you’ve
known before, a ‘poputchik’ is a complete stranger who happens to travel in the
same direction and share your coupe on a train. You are free to open up completely
to your best friend pro tempore, because you know that the person will get off
at a far away stop, never to be seen again, taking your secrets safely with
…unless you become lifelong friends from thereon.
hiiii guys, this is gonna be short n sweet since i’ve never done anything like this before, there’ll just be a few blogs that i absolutely love to death. thank you so so much for 1k followers (even if the 999th one is a porn blog, thank you .-.) i adore you all and hope you appreciate this as much as i appreciate u :’) below the keep reading mark is a SHIT TON of blogs that i follow and love (all related to joji, ian, max and chad or other things) that you should also follow. ones in bold are my absolute favs forever <3 thank you so much yet again for acknowledging me and following me, idk how i managed to get 1k followers but im so grateful honestly :’)
I’ve been in several TV fandoms over the years. Star Trek, Mork
and Mindy, Beauty and the Beast, Moonlighting, Doogie Howser, 90210, Dark
Angel, Ally McBeal, Doctor Who, House, Lie to Me, Burn Notice, Firefly, Gilmore
Girls, The Office, HIMYM, White Collar, Downton Abbey, Sherlock, Outlander,
I’ve always loved watching TV shows with other people and
analyzing the story, the characters, the ships, the writing…I get thinky and
geek out. I love it. For almost a few decades, I’ve had my husband to do that
So, when my husband decided to stop watching OUAT with me
after season four, I came here. Why? Because people out there think I’m weird
when I talk spec, talk headcanons, multiship, get excited over a fictional wedding, or watch/read
spoilers and talk about them. When I’m, y’know…me.
I’ve made some great friends who were simply fellow geeks.
Why? Because you let me be me. You tell me it’s not only okay, but it’s awesome.
Because you get the obsession, the excitement, the unabashed joy when a show or
movie or book or comic series or game or thing
is great. You get the disappointment, the sadness, the rage, the upset, the
sick feeling in your stomach when something goes down and it means your favorite
thing is about to change or go away.
When Star Trek: TNG
went to movies and wasn’t my constant…
When my OTP finally got
together on Moonlighting and then the writing went to shit…
When they cancelled
Dark Angel just as the cops and the transgenics were at a standoff…
I rage quit Ally McBeal
when RDJ went to prison and Larry left. That
Sting solo is still my fave…
FIREFLY. No explanation needed.
FUCKING DOOMSDAY. Pink
and yellow papercut was my LOVE on Doctor Who.
(same show): When the
Ponds got taken by Manhattan.
House and Cuddy. WTF.
When Matthew died on Downton
Abbey, I didn’t watch for a whole season.
I was in mourning.
And then Once Upon a
Time killed Killian a handful of times, and killed Robin, and here we are.
I don’t know if I’ll watch season 7 of OUAT, if it happens.
I might not like it. If I don’t, I don’t. I’ll figure things out. I get why
Jennifer left, and that’s cool. She and I are the same age. I just made a huge
life-change as well. It happens. It doesn’t mean I’m not worried about Emma, or
Henry, or Hook, or the Charmings, or Regina, or Storybrooke.
But I’ve been here before, and I’ll be here again, I’m sure.
So will you. The only constant is change.
So, I’ve got your back, and you’ve got mine, no matter what
show or movie or book comes next.
How To Have a Positive Fandom Experience (it is possible)
1. Not every post requires a reaction. Seriously. I see people exhausting themselves writing responses to a post they don’t agree with when in reality the ONE nice thing about tumblr is if you don’t agree with an opinion you can scroll…. right…. past it. You can hide it from appearing on your dash again. You can blacklist its tags, block the person, etc. Take advantages of the positives of this website and it will already be a much better experience for you.
2. Not every comment requires a reaction. Same thing above goes for all those comments people put on your posts JUST TO GET A REACTION OUT OF YOU. Do you know how many times a post of mine has made it’s way to a different fandom. I look through my notifs and suddenly just see “BELLAMY BLAKE SUX DIK.” Just. Block them.
3. Not every message requires a response. Again, no ones holding a gun to your head saying “you need to respond to every anon sent to you.” I see people responding to anon hate and I just think why the hell would you do that? You’ll NEVER see me respond to anon hate. I can’t think of anything funnier then knowing someone out there got heated enough just over my presence on the internet to type up an angry message, hide behind anon, and now is sitting there waiting for my response. Meanwhile i’ll have read all of 3 words in their message before blocking their IP from ever messaging me again. And they’ll just keep sitting there and checking back waiting for a response they’ll never get while I keep posting shit like “BLARKE IS GONNA FUCK”
4. Unfollow, break mutuals, block people. You’re ALLOWED to do that. I break mutuals all the time and I unfollow people really easily. There’s a reason I’m never following over 90 blogs. I’m not saying that to be cocky, I’m telling yall to drop the mentality that “oh I can’t unfollow this person because we used to talk and they’re kinda big in the fandom and I don’t wanna start shit” and that ever since I dropped that, I do not see drama on my dash. I see my other mutuals referring to the drama, but I never see it because I’ll have already unfollowed the person. IF THEY WERE PROBLEMATIC ONCE,,, THEY’LL BE PROBLEMATIC AGAIN.
5. This “Discourse” Trend. isn’t. cute. Take it from someone who used to constantly get involved in that shit. You think it makes you “one of the blarke fam.” It doesn’t okay, it makes you one of the assholes. No one wants to be friends with that person who’s constantly angry about something. I understand calling out problematic things (that absolutely should happen) but when every single one of your posts is just you being angry, you making a problem out of every little thing, you bringing down others with you, you getting involved where you shouldn’t be, you fighting people,
you writing posts shading someone else’s post, you bringing up old and DEAD shipwars (seriously why are yall still posting l.exa hate, LET IT GO)… you’re not only ruining the experience for yourself but for every single person who follows you and who sees those posts. YOU are contributing to the “fandom drama” and YOU are the reason so many of the newbies in the fandom get involved in discoursing so fast. And guess what? no one feels fucking sorry for you when you’re the one taking a break from tumblr every week because we all know you bring it on yourself.
**To the newbies in the fandom: I know you see it a lot, I know you think this is the only way to be involved in the blarke fam, I know you think it’ll get you a lot of followers and more known in the fandom. Trust me when I say you do not wanna go down that path. It’s not at all fun and there’s a reason the blogs who do this are the ones who want to quit the show, the fandom, tumblr. TRUST ME, I ALMOST QUIT LAST SUMMER, I WAS THAT BITCH. You wanna be more involved? message people, write positive posts, get involved with shit like bellarke fam selfie night. Stay away from the discoursing.
*Doesn’t apply to social justice issues, those should very much be talked about. But stfu about it if you’re straight and white please. And stop speaking over the lgbt poc in the fandom,,,in attempt to get notes and followers*
6. Stop being bullies. You might think you’re “edgy” and a badass bitch for writing a post shading someone, or for being part of a group that gangs up on that one person in the fandom. You’re not edgy, you’re not That Bitch, you’re just A Bitch. You’re the bully that you never got to be in highschool. That’s really all I have to say about that,,,just don’t be a dick ??
7. And finally. Be the positive presence. Be that blog people can come to for a laugh when they’re having a bad day (making people laugh feels a lot nicer then getting people angry, down, etc.) Be the person people feel comfortable enough messaging you. Be the person who drops KIND anons in the ask box of someone you feel maybe doesn’t always receive a lot of love. ***Reach out when someone makes a post about having a terrible day/being in a down mood/struggling with life or mental illnesses.*** Comment and reblog peoples selfies and hype eachother up. Be the person who points out positives of an episode and who can make someone feel better when they’re feeling disappointed. IGNORE THE NEGATIVE ANONS (seriously no one wants to see “bellarke is never gonna happen” on their dash. If we did, we’d be following people from a different fandom.) Ignore the drama, ignore the discourse, ignore the downers in the fandom.
You never know what someones going through outside of tumblr. For a lot of people logging on here is the only distraction they get from what’s going on in their real life. Think about that before putting something negative on someone dash, or before sending a mean anon, or before joining a group to shade That One Person.
okay so this has nothing to do with hp but i felt the need to say it here: i will never reblog anything associated to 13*w (other than this post) on any of my blogs. we all have varying views on it and that’s fine but: it is problematic to the highest extreme possible (and whether you agree with that or not doesn’t matter, it’s a simple fact.) it glamorises and romanticises mental illness, glorifies victim blaming and completely disregards any parameters that was set by the very professionals who are trained in how to handle such a situation, in a way that is able to shelter those who are easily triggered and yet still manage to get the message across. but what was the message it was trying to convey exactly? cause i didn’t see any positive messages coming from this show, all i can see is the way it’s affecting the most vulnerable and that scares me. some of you will be fine with watching it, fine, maybe you’re not easily triggered but it is not a healthy portrayal of mental illness. you can argue that point all you want but it’s not. it’s not. it’s not. also not everyone is like that; some people are easily triggered and yet all i see on this damn website is people disregarding that simple fact. the media has always influenced teenagers and vulnerable adults, that’s not new, but the way in which this is affecting people is terrifying on the world stage. it is not a good portrayal of mental illness. it didn’t deserve the first season, let alone the second. but i just wanted to let you all know that my blogs will always be a safe space to anyone who is affected by it. i’m sorry that you have to deal with seeing it everywhere. i’m sorry that people are so engrossed with the show and how pretty the cast is that they can’t see how real people in the real world are dealing with the aftermath this show is creating. if it’s affecting you even in the slightest, please talk to someone you trust. don’t bottle it up inside. please be safe and take care of yourselves, and each other.
In an ideal world I would have written this post yesterday, but I’m afraid my schedule just didn’t allow it.
I’ve continued to receive a lot of asks about the drama from the other day, so I’ve complied a bit of a FAQ under the cut.
The blogger you were attacking never said any of what you’re claiming she said!
Hello friends, I would invite you to improve your reading comprehension, because I literally never made ANY claim about any blog saying anything at all.
I responded to an anon I got, asking my opinion about a terrible TERRIBLE idea and went on a rant about it. I said phrase that went on to cause a tremendous shitstorm (though frankly I still don’t know why), “don’t be a cunt”. I made a few other posts, because I was ANGRY at the fucking entitlement and stupidity of an idea like that, and answered another ask, making it clear I was talking about the anons doing the rounds, and that I had no idea which blog was supposedly saying what. Then I went and had a highly ineffective rage-shower.
During my rage-shower, I was inundated with messages claiming that a particular blog, the one you’re referring to, was the source of the boycott, and was encouraging other people not to buy Harry’s album. I went to her blog and found absolutely nothing of the sort. What I saw was her answering a series of anons saying about people saying they weren’t going to buy the album, and her answering that people should do what they’re comfortable with.
What I ALSO saw was saw her flipping her shit at me in response to my posts, about my anger, my choice of word, and the way I was apparently telling people how to spend their money, and ~enforcing consumerism~. What I don’t particularly understand is why, knowing that she wasn’t encouraging a boycott, she thought my posts about people who were planning a boycott were about her, when obviously they weren’t. She was particularly upset that I was apparently personally calling her a cunt. Which again, I wasn’t. I was raging at a terrible idea, not at an individual, and anyone who actually read my blog as this was happening would have seen that.
I continued to get anons saying that I was targetting her, and telling me to apologise, because she hadn’t said what I said they were saying - I even replied to another ask saying again that it wasn’t about her, and that I had been responding to the barrage of anons that I was seeing across multiple blogs, but that having seen her response to me, now I was pretty annoyed at her.
My inbox continued to explode, it was 3:30am, I went to bed. Things continued to get messy.
It’s a real pity she now has me blocked, because I went to write her a chat message yesterday clarifying that that I absolutely was not calling her a cunt in those posts, and to say that I could see that she was dealing with as many idiots with failing reading comprehension as I was, and to apologise that some arseholes had been taking on themselves to send her anon hate on my behalf. It’s a shame I can’t do that now, especially because we used to be mutuals.
There wasn’t even a boycott planned, it was just anons running from blog to blog, causing chaos. You overreacted to something that doesn’t exist!
Firstly a reminder that I was very clear that I was specifically replying about the anons that were going around. Secondly, we’ve all seen the way that ideas, both good and bad, spread very VERY quickly through this fandom. In a very sad way, it doesn’t actually matter what the original message was, or was intended to be, because it’s the way it’s interpreted and the way that interpretation echoes through the fandom that really makes an impact.
No, it wasn’t a formal boycott with an official blog and a twitter hashtag… because it was still only a new idea. If left unaddressed, I’m pretty certain it wouldn’t have taken long for the “Support Louis and End Babygate by Boycotting Harry Styles’ Album" bullshit to snowball into actual fandom chaos. (Granted, I didn’t think opposing it would have caused the fucking meltdown that followed, but still.)
I think it’s important to take a loud stance against an outrageously terrible formative idea, the second it rears its ugly head, because prevention is better than cure, and I’m going to keep doing that. If you don’t like that about me, or have a completely different view of what is or isn’t a bad idea that deserves shouting down, then you’re more than welcome to unfollow, I’m not holding anyone here against their will.
You shouldn’t have used a misogynistic slur!
Some of you are spectacularly upset by my use of the word “cunt.” To you, I say “whatever man, it’s just a word.” It’s a swear word NOT a slur. It’s a fucking BODY PART, it can’t be a slur. I have one, some of you have one, whatever. I could have used literally any other swear word and it would have had the same meaning and purpose. I might have said “fucking idiot”, or “ridiculous twat”, or “tremendous dickhead”, or “unstoppable moron”, or “sad waste of carbon”, or literally any other word or phrase designed to make the point of “terrible idea is terrible and anyone who encourages this terrible idea is also terrible.”
If you’re fixated on the word “cunt” more than you are upset at the idea that some people (and again, by that I mean some anons) were trying to peddle around the idea that we should punish Harry for a situation that he’s already suffering through, then quite frankly, you’re just cherry-picking shit to be offended about and WILDLY missing the point, and I don’t have any wish to associate with you.
You can’t tell people what do to with their money!
You’re right. You’re welcome to do whatever you want with your own money, I can’t spend it for you. But here’s the thing:
If you weren’t ever planning on buying Harry’s album because his music isn’t to your taste, or he’s never been one of your favourites, that’s completely fine. You do you, I probs won’t buy Niall or Liam’s albums and I definitely didn’t buy Zayn’s. You are not obligated to support all of the members of One Direction equally, that’s not what being a fan is about.
If you weren’t planning on buying Harry’s album because you’ve been disengaged with the fandom and it doesn’t bring you any joy any more, that’s completely fine. You don’t have to stay at the party if you’re not having fun, and no one is asking you to.
If you weren’t planning on buying Harry’s album because your financial situation doesn’t allow it, that’s completely fine. Obviously real world stuff like food and rent are more important that paying for music that you can’t afford right now, and if you want to support the album, there are still ways you can be involved that don’t cost money, like streaming, tweeting radio stations, and spreading awareness on your blog.
If you weren’t planning on buying Harry’s album because you want to boycott Sony because of the historically shit things that they’ve done then that’s fine… as long as you’re legitimately boycotting EVERY SINGLE Sony artist (and there are a lot of them), and not just Harry. I also hope you then start doing your research, because all music labels have been and will continue to be, terrible to their artists in favour of profit margins. There’s no such thing as a Fairtrade music record label, so if this is your stance, then I hope you’re prepared to almost exclusively listen to unsigned artists for the duration of your niche stubborness.
If you like Harry and his music, but you’re not going to buy his album in order to somehow ~force~ the people running babygate to end it, then I’m sorry, but you’re a fucking idiot. Harry is more affected by babygate than you, as a fan and an outsider, ever will be. Louis is his partner of nearly 7 years, and they go through everything together. Babygate might have targetted Louis, but because they are support system, they’re BOTH suffering through it.
To shun Harry’s creative imput, the album he’s said he’s worked really hard on, that he’s immensely proud of, that he feels represents himself and the things he’s never said before, because babygate hasn’t ended yet is to punish Harry for the specifics of his and his partner’s forcible closeting. Boycotting Harry to end babygate is like fucking to support abstinence and if this is your plan then you’re an dipshit. Don’t be a fucking dipshit.
You’re right, I sent that blogger an ask telling them they’re being a cunt.
Don’t. Fucking. Do that.
Aside from the topics covered in “The blogger you were attacking never said any of what you’re claiming she said!”, never EVER send bullying messages to someone on my behalf. NEVER use my words to attack someone and actually read what someone has actually said before you accuse them of a thing.
If you don’t like what someone is saying on their blog, unfollow. If you don’t follow someone, then why are you bothered by what they’re saying? Don’t @ people, and don’t send poisonous anon messages to people. Literally what the fuck is wrong with you?
You’re not a nice person
Things I claim to be: outspoken, passionate, sometimes generous, loud, intelligent, obnoxious, witty (but significantly too pleased with myself about it), unbearable
Things I have never once in my life claimed to be: nice
You’re a cunt
You’re welcome to dislike me, but again, you’re not going to offend me by your use of that word, because it’s just a word. I mean, I’m still going to block you, for being the sort of person who sends anon hate, but please be aware that you don’t have the capacity to hurt my feelings.
