Okay I genuinely care about the bold type and desperately want it renewed but I hate when I see some people writing rants which are like “if you don’t watch/promote this show, you’re Problematic, watch it for my sake even though I indirectly insulted you" and are saying people who don’t watch it are inadvertently racist or hate woc because they’re not watching the show. Maybe some people have tried watching it and it’s just not for them- like how I never watched Orphan Black or OITNB even though it has queer characters in it. That’s fair enough. But if you want people to watch it if they haven’t tried to yet or haven’t felt the need to DONT FUCKING OFFEND THEM or they won’t want to because it makes our fandom look like horrible people when we’re not (I’ve met some pretty awesome mutuals on here). EXPLAIN how important this show is to qwoc and representation and explain how it’s way more than just a TV show being cancelled. Tell them nicely. Promote it nicely. Don’t be a condescending/ passive aggressive person attacking people and calling them racist in an angry rant. Portray it as the brilliant show that it is and the amazing fandom we are.
Edit: also yes I do agree people should be fully allowed to be upset about this and we should be talking about it I was just saying that people don’t need to be jerks about it because we are an amazing fandom and I don’t want other fandoms to see is a something we’re not. I love what some people have said in response to this and agree fully 100% and yeah I can and will address the problem but not in this post because this was about not being rude to people when we want them to watch a show so I will write that elsewhere. Love only here guys 💕

“And then he called me a stupid cactus! Would you believe that?” “…” “I know right?! Just because I’m a succulent doesn’t mean I’m some stupid cactus!”
Ochara likes to associate himself with roses because of having thorns and feeling important and gets angry really fast when someone points out the truth. Then again pretty much everything makes him angry, he’s worse than an angsty teenager and just complains about everything ever. Others like to make fun of him because of how easy is to make him angry :>
Ewoqi is mute, so he can’t exactly talk back, but for some reason still tolerates Ochara and enjoys his very undemanding company.
I don’t get why we have to be douche bags to underage littles and caregivers,few years ago half of us were in their spot!! It’s sad that you’re bullying your own kind. not only do you make them feel like crap,you also hurt their fuc***g self-esteem for f**k sake. I just don’t get how you can post about equality and bullies then you yourself go out there and insult people who are into the same thing you are just because they are younger than you? And the typical excuse “they are not developed yet so they don’t know what they are doing” argument is complete BS, there are 12 year olds doing more fuc**d up shit all over the world , but noooo god forbid you post about how much you love cuddles smh. Some of these underage littles and caregivers are actually wayyy more educated in the community than most of you , 75% of the underage littles and caregivers on here don’t even post any NSFW material, and they have an age limit on their bio so instead of being a douche and acting like uneducated barbaric cavemen/women you can try to help them and lead them into the right direction or else you are no better than the people you talk about just another hater. Shame on you smh 🤦♂️ shame on you.
Reblog and like if you agree
I'm going to be crystal clear to you, Voltron fandom
The production team and creators of Voltron are actual adults with actual lives. They aren’t going to listen to some whiny children on Tumblr. They’re not going to take your word for it and reveal all their information just for your shippings/pairings. It’s absolutely stupid and unnecessary.
Voltron: Legendary Defender is about five heroes defending the galaxy against an evil empire ran by a fictional alien species. Do you really think they’ll focus 100% on ships and age just for your pleasure? No. That’s not what this show is about. This show doesn’t revolve around romance. And even though there is nothing particularly wrong with shipping, you can’t just expect this show to center around everything romantic. There are certain shows/movies for that.
You can’t be biased on the story/writing either. The writers CAN write. Just because they’re not listening to your whining, it doesn’t mean the content is poorly written. That’s not how it works!
Criticizing the pacing, characterizations, and screentime = good criticism
Whining about your ship being irrelevant = bad criticism
TRY to be mature about it. What do you get out of telling the writers to kill themselves? To telling people who don’t agree with you to kill themselves? To insult the show even though you claim to be a fan over a ship? If that were the case, you were NEVER a fan in the first place. You NEVER cared about this show in the first place. You complain, complain, and complain with such poor basis and articulation and that’s tiring.
Disliking and disagreeing with something is one thing. Arguing, whining and cursing over something so insignificant is another.
hinata: you’re a clown! kageyama: *kicks him* yamaguchi: you know, hinata, i think it’d be better if you don’t insult people who are bigger than you tsukishima: but then he wouldn’t get to insult anyone
All you Jonsa-freaks are fucking delusional. Its a crackship. Its not going to happen. Sansa is Jons sister, nothing more. Jonerys is canon. Get over it!
I usually don’t react to asks like this, but this permanent missuse of the term “crack-ship” is really bothering me, so I want to make some things clear concering fandom-shipping-lingo:
The terms “crack-ship” and “non-canon ship” are not and never have been synonymous, nor 100% interchangeable.
A “crack-ship” is something that has absolutely no possibility of ever happening in canon. It’s something crazy, out-of-place or unlikely moving towards impossible. It’s shipping two characters who’ve never interacted in canon and never will, are completely incompatible with each other, or have never showed any sign of any kind of romantic potential. It’s a ship with absolutely zero back-up in the narrative.
A “non-canon ship” on the other hand, simply is something that isn’t canon. That’s literally the only requirement. Fiction thrives on love-triangles, “will they wont they?”, “whom will she/he choose?” or presenting a main-character with a variety of (potential) love interests over the story. Being “non-canon” doesn’t necessary make something “crack”. If you can find some sort of textual evidence for romantic potential, that isn’t a crackship. Even if it isn’t canon.
Here’s a list GoT-crackships:
Davos x Jon (never showed interest in each other, incompatible when it comes to sexual orientation and age. But I’ve read things, anon. I’ve read things I will never forget) Brienne x Sandor (like … to each their own. Why the hell not?) Missandei x Jorah (she has a boyfriend, he’s obsessed with Khaleesi. Never showed any interest. Like … naahhh ) Jorah x Sam (Peel of my skin and I’ll love you) Lyanna x Stannis (I read a fun little ficlet about them recently.) Robb x Margarey (Not all “crack-ships” are super duper weird. This is a pretty cute one, that I really like. But never interacted with each other, never will.) Robb x Daenerys (This is what canon-divergence was made for, if you ask me.) Arya x Joffrey (I have actually read fanfiction in which Joffrey wasn’t bat-shit crazy cruel, but only a pretty arrogant, entitled jerk. Arya was the one engaged to him and it was a really interesting read.) Tyrion x Cersei (the internet is a weird, dark place with weird, dark ideas.)
My two personal Jon-crackships: Jon x Tormund (because wouldn’t it be cute ???) Jon x Missandei (because wouldn’t it be amazingly cute ???)
The one I have for Daenerys: Tormund x Daenerys (First: Tormund is so amazing, everyone would be happy to have him. I ship him with everyone. Second: Mother of Dragons x Warrior-women-loving-wildling? Sign me the fuck up.)
And the one I have for Sansa: Sansa x Podrick (he’s such an obvious bottom, sorry not sorry. Love this in fanfiction. It’s adorable.)
Here’s a list of GOT-non-canon-ships, that don’t deserve the title “crack-ship” IMO:
Jon x Daenerys(no anon, they aren’t canon yet. Can you look into the future? Leaks don’t count. Canon counts.) Jon x Sansa(if you don’t believe there’s enough textual evidence to back them, you are the delusional one. You don’t have to ship it, you don’t have to like it, you don’t have to believe it’s going to happen. But acting like other people are delusional for thinking they have serious canon potential simply shows that you feel threatened by them. There, I said it.) Jon x Arya(grrm intended them to end up together. I don’t think it’s very likely to become canon, but it isn’t a crack-ship either. The creator himself entertained the possibility once.)
Sansa x Petyr (No, not even being “problematic” as hell makes a ship “crack”. This will never become canon, but I can accept that people like to take the underlying dynamics and change the narrative in fanon. That’s what fanfiction is for. You can take two characters, eliminate the canon-things you don’t like and add things to make your imagination come to life. This might be a bit on the verge to crack, but they definetly have enough canon-interaction to earn a place in this list.) Sansa x Tyrion(I don’t consider them canon. Probably not going to happen. A little problematic as well, but see the commentary above) Sansa x Sandor(similar to sansa x tyrion in my book. More likley than it, probably, since Sansa acknowledges some sort of romantic feelings as well. Liked the fanon-version - sorry not really in canon - for a long time. Still do.) Sansa x Theon (canon-interaction, I can totally see where people are coming from. Nothing is going to happen with like 99,9999% certainty, but I don’t think the term “crackship” is a 100% fair.)
Jaime x Brienne (do I really have anything to add to this ? It’s an absolute fan-favourite. You don’t have to be a fan, but canon acknowledges this having some kind of potential) Brienne x Tormund(The show is so obviously playing with this => not gonna actually happen - probably, but canon wants us to think about it. So, not really a “crack-ship”.)
Arya x Gendry (has a pretty good chance at being canon ~somehow~, at least on the show. But still isn’t canon yet.)
Bran x Meera (same as Arya x Gendry)
Daenerys x Tyrion (he’s obviously in love with her. Look at all the hearteyes.) Daenerys x Jorah (bookverse a little to creepy for my taste, but as I said: To each their own. not so creepy on the show. Still not a fan. Still not really “crack”)
I could go on, but I really hope you get my point by now. Not everyone will agree with this lists. There will probably be a lot of shippers who themselves say “naah. That’s my crackship”. Fine, you can define your own opinion however you like. But don’t insult other people who think it isn’t.
I don’t really care too much about canon, a lot of my all-time otps and ships never became canon(Zutara, Kakasaku, Narusaku, Ichiruki, …). Never stopped me from shipping them. Of course I want to see my ships become canon, but it isn’t a necessity. I’m rooting for Jonsa to happen as long as it’s possible, because I see a lot of foreshadowing for them in both the books and the show. If I’m wrong? I will be disappointed, but okay. Happened before. I’ve learned to be okay with that.
But what I’m not okay with is being called stupid or delusional for interpreting canon-material differently. For seeing potential that IS THERE. I know what a “crack-ship” is anon, and Jonsa simply isn’t one. Wether they become canon or not.
