please people respect each other and their ships

Y’all IF (and I mean IF) Alex and Maggie do ever break up and you celebrate that, then you are so sick and pathetic to be celebrating the demise of one of the very few healthy lesbian relationships on TV.

You don’t even have to like the ship, the characters, or even the actresses but you MUST recognize how important it is for a canon lesbian couple on our screen. They’re changing lives, making people feel okay with themselves, letting young people see that there’s nothing ‘taboo’ about two women loving each other. Respect that, please. Don’t be assholes, okay?

Klance: latest interview with showrunners

video here 

 Positive analysis below! Please please please give it a read!!

Interviewer: *giggling a little* There seem to be shippers out there that wanna ship uh, Lance and Keith together. *Lauren giggles a little* So, uh are there going to be any hints of that at all, like okay they’re friends or they’re starting to become friends? 

Lauren: I think we have just a very natural arc in mind for those two, which is they start out very much at odds but then they grow to kinda respect each other. And if that leans into people being like ‘they’re spending time together’ then that’s a thing but we’re not trying to bait anyone.

Joaquim: Everyone can have their ship

Lauren: Yeah! Everyone’s allowed, and we’re not trying to cater to or bait anyone into anything, we’re just trying to do what’s right for the story

Interviewer: Okay, okay, that’s fair

*they all laugh*

Joaquim: We also try not to be overtly affected by what popular opinion might be.

Interviewer: Well that’s good, you wanna tell your story 

Lauren: We’re working in animation our schedule is so far advanced that even if people shipped Keith and Lance, we couldn’t go back and change the story and be like: ‘Now they’re in love!’ 

Joaquim: We’re already years past that story line


Analysis:

The laughter. Both the interviewer and Lauren are giggling at the start, and whilst the interviewer seems almost to be mocking klance, Lauren just seems kinda awkward, it’s almost as if Lauren is joining in because the interviewer is doing it. Now obviously, I’m not either of those people so I can’t say for sure, but to me it does not seem like Lauren is mocking klance. 

‘Natural arc’ to me seems like a good thing! It shows us that Keith and Lance develop in maturity and respect for each other in a way that is genuine and not at all forced! Gimme that slow burn goodness!!

Lauren seems totally cool with people shipping Klance and even tells us that Keith and Lance will be ‘spending time together’!! That is 100% a good thing!!

For me the most important part of this interview was when they both said that they aren’t trying to ‘bait’ anyone. I think this could mean either two things:

1) They have seen the backlash online when the media queer baits, see ships like Destiel for more info, and because they don’t make klance happen romantically they want to cover their arses.

2) They do make Klance happen and they’re explicitly telling us that it isn’t ‘baiting’ because there is an actual canon queer couple!! 

I believe reason number 2, because I have faith in Klance, see @koganya ‘s giant post about klance to see why I feel this way!

Futhermore, the fact that they tell us that they aren’t trying to ‘cater’ to klance shippers makes it clear to me that we will see lots of klance development, and Lauren and Tim want us to know that klance was planned from the start and not because of the massive online following. This point is only backed up by their emphasis on the fact that they wrote these episodes ‘years’ ago. 

Lauren’s declaration that they can’t go back in time and change the story so it’s like Bam! ‘Now they’re in love’ only solidifies the fandom’s assumptions that klance will be a slow burn ship, and links back to her earlier statement that klance has a ‘natural arc’. This does not  mean that klance is off the table, only that we will have to wait longer to see it become canon!

I hope that you leave this post feeling more positive about klance, feel free to add more comments and theories :) 

More reminders!!!

-Don’t ship the actual actors from Falsettos with each other!!!!

-Stephanie J Block is a straight woman with a husband!!! She’s happily married!!

-Brandon Uranowitz is in a good relationship with his boyfriend Zach, he’s gay!

-Andrew Rannells is a gay man!!

-Christian Borle is a STRAIGHT man!!

-I’m 90% sure both Betsy and Tracie are straight! But still don’t ship people irl!

-Shipping the actors/shipping real life people is really creepy! Especially when you ship a straight person then a gay person together!! Please respect the actors, their relationships, and their sexualities.

Langblr book swap is a blog dedicated to making it possible for you to swap your used books and exchange language learning resources. Please be aware that this is free. So please do not expect to be paid for your used books.

You can participate by submitting a post to this blog in which you tell us the resources that you want to offer. You can offer

  • language learning resources: books with grammar explanations, vocab, excercises etc. Doesn’t matter if you have already written in it or not (from any language to any language)
  • books/novels in foreign languages (can be your native language, but it might be someone else’s target language)
  • CDs or other audio tools dedicated to language learning
  • DVDs or Blurays in foreign languages (please specify which languages and subtitles are available on the movie you’re offering)

Attach some pictures or a short review/description if you like, but it is important to at least include title, (author) and it has to be obvious which language it is.

Of course you can also include your target languages, so other people know what kind of resources you are looking for in return. You can add your levels and specify what books would be appropriate for your current studying.

You also have to tell us the country you live in, so that people can estimate shipping costs.

Your tumblr url (or email, kik, any social media, so you can be contacted) also has to be included

here is an example of a submission post.

Ideally you would offer the community one book of yours, for each book you receive from another user. This way it would stay fair for everyone. However this is not a rule. Please just don’t take advantage of the kindness of others by letting others send you countless books but offering nothing in return. This project works on mutual trust and respect.

PLEASE NOTE: The person you send a book to does not necessarily have to be the person who sends you a book back. For example, if your target languages don’t match, feel free to instead approach other users and ask them if they are okay with sending you books. Also approach others to offer them your books.

Message each other for offers and requests in private messages so you can exchange addresses, paypal info (for shipping) etc.

Feel free to send questions and suggestions for improvement :D

HAPPY SWAPPING, LANGBLR!!

There are few important things I really want to talk about. Please reblog so everyone who’s in Eddsworld Fandom can see.

FIRST OF ALL, I just want to make sure people understands that what they are doing is wrong and how they are ruining the fandom. Here are some points I sorted out.

1. TomTord Fandom

I’m not judging the ship. I actually like Tomtord ㅡ they’re cute together. I ship them AS A FICITIONAL CHARACTER NOT A REAL PERSON?! WHAT THE HELL?!  HOW DARE YOU HARASS TOM AND TORD?! DON’T YOU GUYS KNOW WHAT THE WORD PRIVACY IS? YOU NEED TO FIGURE OUT WHAT’S REALITY AND WHAT’S NOT. BECAUSE OF YOU GUYS, TORD LEFT. BECAUSE OF YOU GUYS, NOW TOM IS GONE TOO. PLEASE PLEASE, PLEASE GROW UP AND BE MATURE.

And now for the people who hates the ship. Look, I get it ㅡ you guys probably don’t know why people ship them because they clearly hate each other but look. There’s a thing called “hate ship”. You pair two characters who hate each other. Basically every fandom has one so you need to get over with it. Don’t tell tomtord shippers weird or don’t just swear at them. Nobody’s the same so you should respect what others like or ship.

2. Shipwars

Oh god where do we start… Everyone has their own OTP and you should respect others. People can ship whatever they want if it’s fictional! Please don’t say this ship is better than the other. That’s only your opinion. Everyone can’t be the same. If you keep saying them aloud you’ll bring hatred over some people. DON’T.

3. Forced Shipping

For all eddsworld askblogs ㅡ this message goes to you. Except for the blogs that’s about specific ships. (EX. Ask toredd! Ask tomtord!) That way people knows what ships they have so who hates it can easily avoid it.

There might be some people who are very uncomfortable with the ship you guys are including on the blog. Especially in the au blog. People there are following the blog because they’re interested in the plot and the story line the au follows. Well, maybe some ships but you shouldn’t put that in the middle.

4. Using arts without credit

THIS IS THE HUGE PROBLEM. I SEE MANY PEOPLE USING MY ARTWORKS, AND MY FRIENDS’. THEY NEVER CREDIT US, OR NEVER EVER ASKED US. PLEASE ASK THE ORIGINAL ARTIST BEFORE YOU USE IT. WE WORKED VERY HARD ON IT. HOURS AND HOURS. IT’S NOT EASY TO CREATE SOMETHING. RESPECT US AND STOP DOING THAT. THIS GOES TO ALL THE FANDOMS, NOT JUST EDDSWORLD

5. Harassment

As you know, Tord and Tom left because people wouldn’t stop forcing them to make out or be together in real life ㅡ same goes to Paultryk now. I’m not saying that I’m against the ship. I’m saying that don’t cross the line. Imagine if group of people shipping you with your friend and won’t stop talking about it and forcing you to kiss your friend. How annoying would that be? Also, please when you draw fan arts or write a fanfiction don’t use their last name because that’s just messed up. They’re real life people just like you and me! Later, if they get a job or something normally their boss searches up their name to see who they are. WELP IF YOU LOOK AT THE RESULTS THERE WILL BE GAY FANARTS ALL OVER THE PLACE PLEASE DON’T RUIN THEIR LIFE. PEOPLE ALSO SENDS BUNCH OF GAY FANARTS TO THEM ALSO?! WHY WOULD YOU THINK THAT’S A GOOD IDEA?!??!

Tord can’t even use his own name now because of you guys. He disappeared because he was scared, disgusted by you people. Tord’s youtube channel is gone too ㅡ why are you doing this to them? 

6. R.I.P

EVERY FUCKING TIME I LOOK AT THE COMMENT SECTION THERE’S ALWAYS A COMMENT SAYING R.I.P EDD. YES I KNOW HE’S NOT WITH US ANYMORE AND YOU GUYS ARE JUST BEING POLITE BUT PLEASE FUCKING STOP SPAMMING THAT. THINK OF WHAT THE EDDSWORLD CREW WILL FEEL. I FEEL SORRY FOR THEIR NOTIFICATION BOX. OH HEY GUESS WHAT IF YOU LOOK AT TOMSKA’S CHANNEL DARKSQUIDGE THAT COMMENT IS ALL OVER THE PLACE. Please just stop. That’s messed up. We get it. He’s in heaven where he can drink cola whenever he wants. Don’t remind us about it. We won’t forget, we promise. You don’t have to constantly tell us. 


It’s not fine at all.

What the fuck is wrong with you all? Why? We all love Eddsworld but you guys are ruining it for many people.

Letter from your fellow BTS fan

I’ve been scrolling around tumblr (as I always do) and boi I have been seeing so much hate on the members of BTS for no reason what so ever. Members have been getting hate because of ships, guys ships, really. Okay, if you are going to ship, then ship what you want, and don’t hate other people for shipping other things, but hating other members just because they are in a ship that you do not like, wh y. Do not hate people for what they ship, don’t hate members because they are in your notp. 

And when these hater be “im army!!1!”, no you ain’t. Being apart of army is when you love and appreciate all 7 members for what they do, you like each of the members for their talent and personality, yes you can bias someone, but please respect the other members. 

sincerely, me 

Posting About Ships On Main Tags- This Issue Is Only Causing More Drama

Okay, so this is about the whole “Posting Ships on Main Tags” thing. And I’m going to address both side of the issue. As calmly and politely as I can.

First off, the people who hate it. They argue that it’s annoying and frustrating for the people who don’t ship, or dislike a ship to be scrolling through the feed of a main tag and seeing a lot of shipping stuff. For some, it may make them uncomfortable, others, it’s just a nusiance.

For the shippers who disagree, they argue that the ship is technically about the people or characters in said ship, and therefore the post they create have a right to go under the main tag. That their fanart and fan posts are less appreciated because they “aren’t allowed” to post on the big Tags- have to post on side tags many people don’t even know about.

My goal here is to be as neutral as possible, so I’m going to defend both sides, as both have as much right as the other, and each is right about some things, and wrong about others.

The shippers technically do have a right to post their stuff under the main tags, so long as it’s only the main tags involved. This is where the… let’s call them “dissagreers”, are wrong. The shippers have as much a right as any Tumblr user to post under main tags, because of the system of the site. ie subtags. For example, I’ll use the ship Miniohm.

Youtube > BBS > MiniLadd > Miniohm

The “Miniohm” tag is technically a subset of the “MiniLadd” (or “Ohmwrecker”) tag- as much as that is an aspect of the “BBS” tag. It uses a similer system to files. One large file with three files in that, and each of those files with a different picture. All different subsets of the same thing.

The shippers’ flaw is that they sometimes go to far, or don’t respect people’s boundaries.

For example, say someone created a fanfiction- a smut. For those of you who don’t know what that means, it’s an adult genre of fanfiction, dirty writing. A lot of people may be uncomfortable with reading this, even the YouTubers, if this is a tag about them. Things like this, or erotic fanart or super over the top (specifically sexual) posts may have the same effect. This could resort in the YouTubers or other Tumblr users checking Tumblr less often, or even leaving the site. Shippers need to be mindful and respectful with their posts. They can post, for sure, but they need to watch their words. Hardcore stuff for the ships? That’s probably better to be simply restrained to the ship’s tag.

For everyone- please respect each other. Arguing will never work, and neither side will back down. As I’ve seen, the Shippers are ton determined, and the Dissagreers don’t back off. What you guys need is a comprise, an agreement.

The shippers can post- are by all means free to do so, but must watch themselves carefully. The Dissagreers must lay off a little, be respectful of the shippers, as they truly love the fandom as much as you, albeit in a different way. Be respectful of the shippers and their excitement and effort, (you can always scroll past the posts, it’s not that hard.)

All in all, know you’re boundaries and rights, and monitor you r actions. You are all fellow people in one big fandom- rejoice with that!

About SugarMelon, SourMelon and SourRotten!

Me and @sugartalesans has agreed on breaking SugarMelon, SourMelon and SourRotten to only be friends. Melon will keep Fika, Berrycandy and CottonCandy and Sugar will keep Runt. 
This is so you guys will not see it as me and sugarmun represent them in a romantic way because sadly that isn’t how things are anymore. 

So I don’t know if they will interact with each other to be honest and what will happen later on. I do not talk that much to sugar anymore and we will see what happens. Melon has a new canon ship and I want people to respect that and same goes with Rotten.

We do not dislike each other or anything we are still friends. But this had to be done so some people over here would understand that we are not the characters. 

I hope you all have a wonderful day and hopefully you guys will see more of Melon, Rotten, Fika, BerryCandy and CC here on my blog.

I edit it because some stuff has changed lately and well I want to keep they way I see my characters. I do not want people to ship melon and rotten around or show me it. Respect me please in this and the fact that I have a new girlfriend. Both me and my characters are extremely loyal kind of like the Phoenixes @twinklephoenix has. Which is why they click so well with each other.

K guys here's the dealeo

So u know the season 3 Voltron leaks?
Those of you who keep them and wish for Klance so badly are only ruining the chances of it actually happening.

I get that you’re passionate. I really do, but blackmailing the creators is not the way to go about it. I felt the same defensiveness about my own ships once upon a time, but it is extremely important that we respect people and each other. This incident, along with the ship discourse that I know got pretty bad earlier this year, is not something we want to be as a fandom or as people.

If you don’t take the pictures down, it may ruin Voltron for the rest of us, including yourselves. Think about it for a little while, please. The creators are not this force that magically makes Voltron appear every six months, but they are PEOPLE. We must remember that.

Please

Let people ship what the fuck they want for fuck’s sake.
If they’re not hurting anyone why the hell would you hurt them?

Respect people and what they like,
whether you think it’s fucked up or not.

Don’t be mean to people just because they like something you don’t,
or that you find weird or “bad”.

Kierark and Kieran haters

I really tired of haters who use kieran/kierark tag to spread their hate and hurt kierark shippers/kieran’s fans. Marktina shippers are so agressive and rude and wrong. They use the same arguments over and over again. Cassandra said that Kieran isn’t selfish, manipulative and so on, so stop protecting YOUR ship by insulting OURS (i mean kierark). 

Have you guys read “Stars to Burn”? Kieran cared for Mark, protected him, kept him alive. He did’t tell Mark about his feelings. He gave Mark a choice and Mark choose him. Their relationship is beautiful, sad and comlicated. Cassandra could give them a chance in LOS to make their relationship more stable, but she decided to develop unnecessary relationship between Mark and Cristina. 

So I want to say that if you don’t ship kierark please don’t write rude opinions. We don’t need hate here. If you ship Marktina good for you, write about how perfect they are for each other without insulting kieran and kierark. What is more important they started to insult Cassandra for posting things with kieran/kierark. DO NOT BE SO STUPID TO HURT A PERSON FOR A CHARACTER OR A SHIP. She created this world so show some respect. Cassandra knows better if kierark relationship is healthy or not.

Also i’m not saying that all marktina fans are bad. In my fandom they are nice people who have never said a bad word about kieran, kierark and kierark shippers. 

Sorry for my bad english. 

If you’re a fan of 19 days please respect Old Xian as well as other fans!

The fights over ships, favourite characters, etc. have always been present in fandoms. But for the sake of Old Xian and other people please let’s respect each other!

The other issue is some people being impatient with Old Xian. Please understand that every chapter is a process. Instead of complaining on the author’s social media show your support! Tell them how much you love the characters, how exciting the previous chapter was! Don’t make it any more stressful than it already is.

Take your time to read Old Xian’s thoughts:

Look. I love Klance. It was one of the first ships I got into when the show began.
I also love Sheith. But I realize that Sheith is the one ship in the show that has the most canon chemistry. No one can deny that Shiro and Keith care for each other deeply, whether that care be platonic or romantic, we have yet to discover. And, of all the ships, it is the one most likely to become canon. So I only ask one thing from the fandom; please do not be cruel to your fellow shippers. If Sheith, or Kallura, or even Hance become canon, please do not attack, put down, or belittle other shippers who had high hopes for their ships. Please be respectful and, above all, be kind. This is a fictional show filled with fictional people. We should not be hurting real people’s feelings over trivial matters such as ships. Season three is soon to be upon us. I do not wish to see any more hate or cruelty.

The most joy I take out of Aruani is that their relationship could be anything. That small, to no, interaction is what makes their connection beyond our own imagination. We don’t really know much besides their ‘friendship’. A beautiful ship that could be considered an underdog. This underdog could possibly be canon and the coolest part is that to everyone else who doesn’t see them as a potential couple, will be surprised. Also, how they would interact with each other romantically, could go in any direction. I respect and support any type of head canons people have because we, ourselves, don’t even know.

Anyway, apart from my own words on it. I’d hope to start hearing some of yours as well! Anytime you scroll on by this or anything I post/reblog, please leave an ask or message. Basically whatever you want with the ship and I will gladly reply with love! Thank you for following, once again!

Why can't people distinguish between characters and real people?

Jesus Christ, leave actors outside of your shipping, please? Or at least be respectful about it (“Omg, those two would be so cute together!”)

Do not harass people’s significant others because they’re not with one of their co-stars. It’s honestly disgusting and it leads to actors hating their fans. Also, it’s completely delusional to ship two actors just because their characters like each other. They are not their characters!

Alycia is not Lexa. She doesn’t wear war paint and barely smile. She isn’t a leader. She doesn’t have black blood.

Melissa is not Kara. She doesn’t put on blue and red and go save the world. She’s not a reporter.

Katherine is not Nicole. She isn’t a cop. She doesn’t live in a small town. She isn’t even a red head!

Guys, come on. Learn boundaries. Fiction is not reality. Just be respectful of your faves.

This is coming as an outsider’s perspective, because I don’t really ship anyone ever and therefore am exempt from the drama that can happen a lot in fandoms.

But that’s the reason why I want to make the point that shippers do not equal the fandom.

What I mean by that is that a shipper is part of the fandom.  They are part of a community joined together with a mutual interest in a certain media.

But if we get too caught up in “shipping wars,” in debating Vanitas&Noe versus Vanitas&Jeanne and so forth, we lose that community.  Suddenly we are divided, and that’ll leave non-shippers like me kind of stranded in a not-fandom.

Please feel free to have your opinions.  And obviously I can’t stop anyone from saying whatever they want in this tag.  But we are a small fandom and I think that can allow the benefit of minimal drama.  The fact that we are a small fandom is the reason I feel safe expressing my opinions, because nearly all the time I’ve done that in the ph/vnc fandom it’s ended up perfectly fine.  Very rarely have I ever gotten into a serious argument with another person here.  And I see that way too much in larger fandoms that I am part of/not vocal in for that reason.

Basically I’m encouraging us all to be respectful, keep calm and carry on, don’t go overboard in what we’re saying, especially in the main vnc tag.  Let’s please try to keep this community together and not be divided by who we want Vanitas to kiss (or more depending on what you’re into)(have fun with whoever you ship).

So about septiplier


It is pretty much dead. It’s been dead a long time now.





People. If you’re gonna ship it ship it with respect please? And don’t shove it in mark and jacks faces because they WILL get uncomfortable because they are HUMAN BEINGS THAT ARE CLOSE FRIENDS WITH NO ATTRACTION TOWARDS EACH OTHER. I love the bromance ship because we all get a little gay with our friends but please refrain from posting smut and then tagging it in the main tags. It’s not nice. Respect Amy and Signe. And respect the fact that both of them are straight and happy in their relationships. Consider it and we might just get back to the original balance of them acting goofy on camera without “SEPTIPLIER AWAY” swarming the comments.

Can we talk about how right after Karasuno lost to Seijoh, Hinata and Kageyama shared a really special moment?

After Hinata started outwardly expressing his aggravation (by yelling, shouting and running around the gym), you could tell Kageyama was hesitant to show that side of himself for a moment. That quickly changed though, and then the two threw their own sort of pity party? They may not have been extremely close friends at the time, but you could tell that they had a deeply rooted trust and respect for each other that was enough for them to grieve over the loss together.

I don’t know, I always thought that was a special moment in the build of their relationship that not many people talk about.
