Define
  • Professor McGonagall: Mr. Malfoy, define "dense"
  • Draco: Harry Potter.
  • Harry: *stares obliviously at Draco*
  • Draco: *has a bored look on his face*
  • Harry: *stares at McGonagall*
  • Professor McGonagall: *sighs* 50 points to Slytherin.

On one hand, I always expected Jason and Percy to be rivals and fight

but then again, in this first POV Jason literally jumps off a cliff to save a girl he just met without knowing he can fly

he was like oh yes this seems like the next logical step

and I’m like

of fucking course this dumb-ass sweetheart with a hero complex was gonna be Percy’s bro in .5 seconds

The Galra Side of fandom

· If it’s named you already know it’s dead
· Every piece of fanart and fics you find is precious
· Bonus point if it has a character other than Sendak or Zarkon
· 20 bonus points if it has no GalraKeith
· Dem butts
· Endless theories on why they are so diverse.
· Discussing with friends in chat how you will be mourning together over the next galra dead in upcoming season and which character is next to meet their ancestors.
· Too many questions about galra culture, ranks, etc. Or what galra feet look like. Give up already, pal.
· “WHERE ARE THE GALRA WOMEN”
· ’Insert character name here Deserved Better’
· OCs
· If you don’t draw it/write it yourself, who will
· Random people you talk to don’t know the names of your favs and have no idea what are you talking about.
· Memes are rare but gold.
· Bonus point if memes are from canon.
· Pain and angst and eternal suffering huh.

There’s a lot to be said for honest feedback and concrit. It helps us grow, helps us develop our skills, and helps us learn. Workshopping pieces and sitting through concrit sessions on my art and writing in college where I had my work absolutely shredded and dissected made me examine and improve on what I did, and made me intimately aware of what areas needed attention. And that was good for me.

But:

If you’re reading fanfic, and the author has not specifically solicited concrit – if they aren’t asking for writing advice, and you aren’t their beta – odds are they are not deeply invested in a random fandom stranger’s thoughts on their craft. Unlike someone trying to get a novel published, if they’re writing on FFN or AO3? Odds are they are writing for fun, and posting their writing so fellow fans can share that fun. 

If you’re not having fun? Close out the tab and move along! The fruit of their labor is free to enjoy, and if it isn’t what you want it to be, there’s a lot more fic/art/whatever out there for you to find. You’ve spent nothing, lost nothing.

If they ask for concrit, sure, give it! I’ve workshopped art in slack chats with other fan artists where everyone chimed in and gave suggestions and advice and it was great. People seeking honest feedback from a beta will let you know they’re looking for your opinion on a story’s weaknesses and suggestions for how to address them.

But if they don’t ask? There’s a good rule of thumb in life that holds true in fandom etiquette when commenting on works, and that is: If you haven’t got anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. 

does anyone else think about how fandoms are like cities?

you got your big, bustling ones that are really diverse and busy, maybe a little hard to navigate and full of crime, good areas and bad areas. the locals know the hot spots and how to get around

then the mid-range towns with big city attitudes even though they’re not big cities, a few local hubs of activity, the crazy dude ranting about stuff on the street corner who makes people uncomfortable

and then the small spot towns where everybody knows everybody, you can’t go out without seeing somebody you know, and there’s only one grocery store

BATIM Fandom...
  • BATIM Fans: Boi, we sure hope we don't fuck up the fandom like FNAF or Undertale!
  • Chapter 1 Fandom: Joey is abusive towards Bendy and Boris, Joey killed Boris, Bendy's a smol innocent bean, Boris's a smol innocent bean
  • Chapter 2 Fandom: Alice Angel?? Henry the sheep! "Bendy-Sempai notice me!"-Sammy, Bendy thinks Sammy's a creep,HOLY FUCK IT'S BENDY!!, #Borislifematters
  • BATIM Fans: ... šHįT

If you’re ever sad, think of your favorite character blogging about you instead of it being the other way around.

Think of them reblogging pictures of you and tagging them with “so cute”, “adorable”, “precious bby”, and so on.

Just think of that.

Okay, since people on this damn site wanna act brand new..

Sasha Banks is 5′5″, between 110-115lbs. Yeah, she is a wrestler, but she’s a woman too. So you think it’s a-ok for some random dude (or chick) who’s probably bigger than her to approach her and she should be okay with that just because he bought her merchandise? At the airport in the wee hours of the morning? Or at her hotel?

Y’all must be out your motherfucking minds!

I got a name for y’all: Rebecca Schaeffer. Look her up and then go up to Sasha and the whole WWE Women’s division and tell them that they’re stupid for having concerns about stalker fans.

PS: Fuck Bubba Ray and all the dudes acting like Sasha is being a bitch.

My favourite @miraculace headcanons for Asexual Awareness Week!

Bonus:

So everyone acts like the supposed cult thing is what makes Joseph a creepy character, but honestly he gave me a bad vibe at the end of the second date.

What was with that Margarita ville? And how he tried to seduce your character? He’s the only one who’s married and he works the hardest to get into your pants. He strands you out on a boat and lies to you to get you in bed. Ughgggggg.

I don’t think he needs to be possessed by demons. Maybe it’s a glitch, but I think there’s no good Joseph ending because he’s a manipulative tool.

“Come, my love. Let me hold you”

Loki practically begged. She responded with a playful smile, that seemed to say “make me”. He looked at her with longing, no matter how much he pleaded and begged for her touch, she would not give in. She was an illusion but she was just like you; she had the same eyes that longed for adventure just as yours had and the same hair that he had run his fingers through, although he would never speak of his feelings and would often push your love away, his affections for you were genuine. Loki could fool himself with your image for days on end but
He was completely and utterly alone.
