personal shit no one should care to read

Alright

So I’m angry at everything and the world and I’m especially angry

about the fucking fanfic called I Hate Love You.

I was going to do the n///ame thing so it won’t come up in tags but lol sorrynotsorry this kind of needs to be seen so here we go

Let me just come right out and say it: This fanfic is problematic because it deals with abuse, victim-blaming (so much fucking victim blaming), drugging, manipulation, blackmailing, and a whole bunch of other problems.

If you read this fic, and even if you don’t, I really fucking hope you don’t sympathize with Adrien past the first half of the first chapter or whatever.

This version of Adrien doesn’t deserve forgiveness, happiness, a second chance. He doesn’t deserve sympathy. The next thing you’re gonna tell me is that if some man drugged a girl in real life and took suggestive photos to blackmail her with, that he should be forgiven for it if he “does everything he can to get forgiveness.” If you wouldn’t sympathize with someone who does that to your friend or any stranger, then you’d better not fucking sympathize with it in this fic.

“Oh but Megatraven!! Fanfiction isn’t real, sweaty!!!” you say.

Yeah, fanfic isn’t real. But do you know what is? Being affected by a fanfic. If people think what’s happening in this fic is okay, they’re going to wind up romanticizing abuse and won’t see it as a problem when it is. Fanfic can impact a person’s mind and thoughts, just like reading any book can.

There are a lot of younger people in the fandom, people who aren’t even out of high school yet, and when a fic as popular as this victim-blames and makes a sympathizer out of you for a very abusive person, then it’s going to affect the way they think. They’re going to go out in the world (or maybe experience it young, even) and they’re going to get hurt and be expected to forgive someone that hurt them for fear of being blamed for it all.

In this fanfiction, Marinette made one mistake. Just one. She snapped at him. Then she apologized. But he decided to make her life hell.

He made her look bad in front of everyone.

He drove away her friends, or made them (Alya included) try to convince her to be nice to him.

He abused his miraculous’ power to get in good with Marinette (who was crushing on him) and made her trust him.

He stole her first kiss as Adrien, and her second as Chat Noir near immediately after.

He drugged her so that she would stay sleeping, and then proceeded to touch her (without consent!!!) to make sure he got some nice photographs that made it look like she was taking advantage of him and proceeded to blackmail her into being his girlfriend with them.

Nobody heard her cries for help, they just saw them and went “awww cute couple!”

He apparently fell in love with her through all of this. (That’s really fucking unhealthy and disgusting, falling in love with the girl you’re manipulating and abusing and forcing to be with you.)

She found out he was Chat Noir, and was rightfully upset and devastated and hurting. She made him stay away from her, and she told him what he is- a monster who doesn’t deserve to say he loves her or is sorry or full of regret.

TIKKI! OH BOY GUYS, LISTEN TO WHAT TIKKI FUCKING SAID. SHE SAID “Aww he tried to apologize!” BECAUSE APPARENTLY SAYING “SORRY FOR DESTROYING YOU AND ABUSING YOU” MEANS YOU SHOULD FORGIVE HIM. She also tries to defend him. “Maybe he was just confused?” Yeah fucking right.

Anyways, he felt bad, so he told Nino, Alya, and Chloe what he did to her. Nino tries to defend his actions a tiny bit, Alya is furious, and Chloe wants to help him fix the situation.

Tikki lectures Marinette on forgiving him for herself, not for him, but you know???? You don’t have to fucking forgive anybody if you don’t want to. Maybe it works for some people, but it doesn’t work for everyone.

oh then HERE COMES THE BEAUTIFUL (read: HORRIBLE) PART: CHLOE SAYS THEY’LL ONLY BOTH BE HAPPY IF THEY’RE TOGETHER. SORRU BUT IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY, CHLO.

MANAGES TO GET ALYA AND NINO ON HER SIDE, TO TRY AND GET MARI AND ADRIEN BACK TOGETHER BECAUSE “They’ll be happier together”

And then

And fucking then

they decide to make Marinette and Adrien meet. Because, you know, Marinette’s unhappiness is because she’s only heartbroken, not because she was drugged, abused, manipulated, used, etc. Because seeing her abuser and talking things out is the only way to solve the problem.

They made her sit down and eat lunch with him or some shit

god there’s so much more and i stopped reading around here because I couldn’t fucking deal anymore, but i’ve watched some live reads of it and also skimmed some of the time and basically

Adrien gives her space and time and when they get together again, because Marinette somehow still loves him, he gets super clingy and over protective and Marinette doesn’t like it at all. She needs more space and time and he tires to give it to her, all the while victim-blaming and guilting her because he’s “done everything [he] can to earn her forgiveness” wHEN HE SHOULD DAMN WELL KNOW HE HASN’T

he ends up giving her his miraculous and leaves france for a few years?? Plagg is a fucking asshole and tells Marinette he gave up his happiness for her own as if he deserves happiness after everything that happened

So anyways

A lot of the readers (if you don’t believe me, read the comments on the fic holy shit) find that Marinette is being a bitch who should forgive Adrien because he’s said sorry and given her a few things

and they find Adrien as a perfect little angel who did some bad things but doesn’t deserve how he’s being treated now because apparently Mari said they was okay but decides she wasn’t ready to completely forgive him yet and that she needs more space.

They think what he’s done for forgiveness and out of ‘’’’love’’’’ means what he did to her doesn’t matter anymore

Let’s also, just for a moment, touch on this very problematic thing:

THE AUTHOR

MADE

A

POLL

AND 67% OF THE PEOPLE WHO TOOK IT

SAID ADRIEN DESERVES FORGIVENESS

the author also says “ After [these polls] please, don’t come shouting to me that you’ve got traumatized because the story is so … “traumatizing”. If you don’t like it, don’t read it.”

IF IT’S PROBLEMATIC AND GROSS AND TERRIBLE NO ONE SHOULD BE READING IT BUT YA KNOW

I GUESS IT’S OKAY BECAUSE YOU HAD SOME POLLS AND PEOPLE CAN’T RECOGNIZE PROBLEMATIC THINGS AS PROBLEMATIC

I don’t fucking care if you personally don’t find this shit problematic, it doesn’t change the fact that it is.

Unfollow me if you sympathize with Adrien in this fic. Unfollow me or talk to me so that I can explain in more detail why he does not deserve sympathy, forgiveness, happiness, or really anything people seem to think he does.

Edit: I know I didn’t put everything I could have into this, but trust that there is a ton more wrong in that story.

Reposted Art and You: A Guide for the Rest of The Fandom

AKA “How the hell can I tell if artwork is stolen and what do I do?”

THE SEQUEL TO MY CONSENT POST


I’m just a grumpy dubber who doesn’t like to see people getting credit for work that isn’t their own. Every day, or just about, I prowl youtube for stolen artwork. I think my record of reposts reported to artists in one night is 15 or 16. If you’re one of the people I’ve spoken to in the past, again, you’re very welcome. :)

But there’s a lot of stolen stuff out there and there are more sites than just youtube. I can’t do everything here, people. Work with me.

If you’re reading this and you’re someone who’s had a video of artwork you posted taken down, HELLO! I might just be the little bitch who snitched on you.

This is tailored towards the Miraculous Ladybug fandom but it applies EVERYWHERE. ALL FANDOMS.


Reposters….*hisss*

If it’s not on tumblr or deviatart, you should assume it’s reposted. The only exception I know of this is the user on instagram who made ML photo edits - but they now have a tumblr account anyway.  If it’s on: youtube, weheartit (FUCK this website), pintrest, instagram, anywhere else, 9/10 times it’s been reposted.

Keep in mind that not all reposters are inherently thieves. Technically speaking, as a dubber, I’m a reposter. (cue dramatic gasps)  However, when I repost, it’s done with the artist’s full conset and proper credit is given in the description, along with indication that I am doing so with permission. So, yes, I am technically a reposter, but I am not a thief. And there are a number of others like me. We are benevolent and we’re just doing what we love and supporting the artist. 

Then you got these other douchewaffles who are reposters and thieves. These are the people who do NOT have permission to repost OR reposted w/o following the conditions set by the artist. By not adhering to the rules set by the artist, you are in violation of the agreement/contract and, therefore, guilty. 

Do not let them get away with it.

Some artists are chill with talking to the people and getting them to put proper credit and that’s that. Cool, dude. Resolved peacefully and the artist can get more exposure - assuming people on youtube are smart enough to read the fucking description and, uh, as a dubber, I know for a fact we’ve got some real gems over on youtube. >_>    HOPEFULLY, the poster has learned their lesson.

Some artists don’t even fucking care and straight up flag that shit. …Personally, I agree with this one more. That person didn’t have the fucking courtesy to even ASK YOU. Why should they be allowed to reap the benefits of your hard work?  Flag it. Report them.


Is it stolen?

If it’s on instagram, pintrest, weheartit– assume it’s stolen. I know this is a generalization but it’s one that is well-supported.

If you see a video of artwork/a comic on youtube that:

  • been made with a video editor that’s left a watermark on it
  • Has no credit  or something like “Art is not mine!” “Credit to the artist” “found on x website!”  or, lol, has the artist name but no link to their tumblr
  • Has really bad audio quality if it’s a dub
  • Has a name like “Miraculous Ladybug Comic #”
  • Has a watermark visible on the image that is not theirs
  • Is by tumblr user sapphireluna
  • Part of a large picspam

YEAAAHHH THAT SHIT IS PROBABLY STOLEN.


Oh crap I think this is stolen. What do I do?!

TELL THE ARTIST IMMEDIATELY. Give them a link to the stolen artwork or video. If they have their messages and askbox set to private or off, make a tumblr post and tag them if you must. Just make sure they see it.

If you do not recognize the artist and there is no watermark or legible signature, take a screenshot of the video or if it’s a picture download it, and run it through google’s reverse image search. Tumblr and deviantart are likely to be the locations of the artist. OR, shit, send it to me and I can try to find them.

If you’re nervous to contact the artist….don’t be. You’re helping them. Artists, if someone comes to you with a link to a stolen video or image post, thank them. Even if it’s the third time you’ve heard about it, you know they’re just trying to help you.

Also, like caprette said, call them out in the comments. LET PEOPLE WHO SCROLL DOWN TO LEAVE A NICE COMMENT KNOW THIS ARTWORK IS STOLEN. GIVE IT A THUMBS DOWN IF IT’S YOUTUBE.

Do not bully the person, do not harass them, but make a fuss! I don’t recommend it but you’re going to drag them, be smart about it. Yes, I know, cussing and yelling is easy–LOL I don’t think there’s anyone who’s followed me for at least a month who hasn’t seen me go to town on someone–but the best smackdowns also include logic and reason.

NOTE: REPOSTERS AREN’T ALWAYS CAUGHT IMMEDIATELY. SOME HAVE BEEN UP FOR MONTHS AND HAVE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF VIEWS. IF IT ISN’T CREDITED OR FITS THE PARAMETERS ABOVE, CONSIDER IT STOLEN UNTIL PROVEN OTHERWISE.


What about dubs?

Many dubs are not on the level. No matter how well put together they may seem. Some of the well known dubbers steal. Yes, that’s right. Your favorite dubber might just have stolen that artwork. 

How do I know? Well, see, between being an active member of the fandom, a dubber, and finding stolen artwork, I’ve gotten the chance to talk to and befriend a lot of artists throughout the fandom. I know who people have problems with. Or, HAH, in one case, I found one of their dubs using my girl piikopoko’s music. (That music box theme song, y’all? It’s hers. Use it without permission and you’re stealing. I will fight you.)

On that note: philsterman01, kujirashonen, and neitheram are on the level. I know they always ask and they got some good dubs. There are other dubbers who I’ve heard get consent but I just don’t know them well enough to vouch for them.

And there are dubbers who I wouldn’t vouch for period. (…Unless, idk, someone offers me a million dollars, then I might.) As much as I’d like to, I’m not going to call anyone out here. This isn’t that kind of post. But I know who you are and you know who you are and you should be ashamed.


In summary: keep and eye out and speak up! Reposters of the rotten sort are everywhere and artists cannot be. If you see something, SAY SOMETHING. My salty ass will keep on prowling youtube every day but Jesus Christ on a pogo stick, help me.

things you shouldn’t ask 5sos to do or answer in interviews 2k16:

• ask them if they’re single. we want to hear about the music not your eight grade gossip.

• if they’d date a fan. no one gives a shit since we all know they’ll date whoever they want regardless of what they person likes.

• what disney princess/actress/singer/famous person they’re crushing on. again, no one cares, we’re here for the music, and they’ve said multiple times that they don’t like this question/get annoyed by it.

• what the first album they bought was

• play a “5 second” game. those were old in 2012.

• ask calum to read his turtle poem. leave the guy alone, you can tell it embarrasses him.

things you should ask or make 5sos do in interviews 2k16:

• who can do the most push-ups with another band member on their back.

• literally that’s it.

• my money is on ashton, he looks like the type who eats kale raw and likes it.

I just need to say this:

I get really frustrated with posts that are all “omg practicing self care by buying a 8 dollar bath bomb and spending 40 dollars at the farmers market lol ~love yourself~”

1) self love is not inherently feminine or consumeristic. And I’m sure there will be at least one person that bad mouths me for defining that as feminine but it’s generally perceived that way

2) self love and self care can be as simple as “oh shit I haven’t showered in 4 days I should go do that”

3) or “I’m a good person and despite my flaws I deserve love… I should text my friend back”

4) but listen, if splurging or spoiling yourself is how you practice loving yourself, go at it

5) I’m just saying that so many people may read those posts and say “well I can’t afford/justify that” or “oh if that’s what self care is then I don’t need it because I don’t want to do that”

6) so go outside, get off the computer, call your friend/parent, go to your therapist/doctor, take your meds, etc. etc. because you are a human and you deserve the basic happiness life can offer

7) BECAUSE YOU ARE A HUMAN AND YOU DESERVE THE BASIC HAPPINESS LIFE CAN OFFER

Setting Things Straight

I guess you’ve all been waiting for this post, huh? Last night was the scariest night of my life thus far. If you don’t know exactly what happened, @markiplier rebloged a gifset of mine about imagining moving in with him and he replied “Let’s not”

Now, a lot happened from that tiny action. At first it was all fun and games before crazy fans started hating me and saying horrible things. They sent your typical hate but that’s not my point. My point is that at first, there was a lot of hate. So much I replied to, so much I didn’t reply to and so much I deleted before I could read the whole thing. Then, an hour later, slowly there was one person who seemed to give a shit about me, then another, and another, and there was a whole sea of people. It was overwhelming. I wanted only to be alone but I pressed on anyway, knowing it will pass. Soon there was so much going on that I could barely keep my head above water and I sort of ran away. I ran to Jack’s community. It was a very Frisk and Toriel situation if you know what I mean. I sort of walked up to their door and begged to be let inside from the cold storm. They let me in in a heartbeat and gave me all the cake and cookies in the world. I got more love from that community in five minutes than Mark’s community in the past six months. I felt like a queen but I wish I didn’t.

A lot of people said “Don’t worry, Mark will put his dad pants on soon.” and I felt a bit of comfort but a bit of anger as well. I felt comfort because I felt he would protect me but I felt anger because he shouldn’t have to. This community needs to learn to stand on it’s own two feet and not just ride around on Mark like a horse. As soon as you enter this community you’re given your own dad pants so why am I the only one wearing them and why should Mark ever have to wear them. You know he hates pants.

And about the hate. I am a very insecure person. I hate myself more than anything but even I know that I didn’t deserve that. How do I know? Because no one does. As Mark has stated, “If you’re out there on the internet and ever take it upon yourself to attack, berate, insult, spread rumors, do nasty shit to people, you do not belong in this community. And we do not care. Period.”

Never send hate. This community is supposed to only be filled with loving people who want to change the world for the better and be happy. I do not care who reads this but it should disgust you to no end that I had to run away from my own community, my own family, to someone else’s because I was scared here. This is my home and it tried to attack me and that is not okay. No matter what you do, no one deserves hate like that, much less the amount of hate spread around, even behind my back.

So to wrap up, Mark should never have to wear dad pants, wear your own dad pants, he in fact admitted he was sorry about the sass he threw at everyone last night and further explained that it was a joke, thank you to @therealjacksepticeye and your whole community for helping me, and never spread hate. You do not belong here if you have sent hate, still send hate, or will ever send hate. Period.

And yes, I will keep making these gif sets until the day I die.

Walker Stalker Atlanta 2015

Okay so, this is going to be a ridiculously long post. No like, RIDICULOUSLY. In addition, it will probably make no sense whatsoever, because my brain is nothing but a giant pile of overstimulated mush after the explosion of amazing that was this entire experience. So if all of that sounds like your jam, definitely click the read more, but I don’t blame anyone who can’t make it through more than three sentences. Lulz, onward!

Keep reading

GUYS

literally just try to tear down every blog that is counting down to the days they can write smut about vernon and seungkwan

let them claim to be bullied, their the ones distributing porn about minors and also being disgusting predators. 

I will call them that, whether they are legal or not. It’s a disgusting mind set to say this shit about seventeen.

Hell, BTS said they felt violated reading through the youtube comments, think about what seventeen might think if they saw this shit.

Yes, you should care what they think. they are REAL people you are writing about, just with assumed personalities. 

it’s not matter of “if you don’t like it, don’t look at it.” Well, hey, if you don’t like people saying shit to these blogs about underage smut, don’t look at it. Right?

i just went to walmart by myself.

and the following things happened:

  • two thirteen year old boys followed me around the store the whole time.
  • a country boy jumped out of the clothes rack wearing a cowboy hat while screaming, “24 WOOO!” i assume a race just ended near by since there was an excess of hillbillies in dirty trucks.
  • after i got the shit scared out of me, i dropped everything i was carrying.
  • i got three notebooks for 17 cents
  • i got winked at by a walmart worker.
  • a boy came up to me out of breath begging me for this lego set he REALLLLLLLY REALLLLY REALLY WANTED.
  • then the boy almost cried when he realized i wasnt his mom.
  • i almost bought the lego set for this little boy.
HEY

HANNAH.

AMELIA.
