Adrien’s Game 2.5: The Ball’s In Your Court, Nino

If you’ve read my previous posts “The Evolution of Adrien’s Game” and “The A-mew-sing Sequel”, you’ll know that:

A: I’m being forced to rest until my bronchitis is gone, so I can’t sew
B: My creativity is suffering so, therefore, I’m making crack posts
C: I have a warped sense of humor

This one’s gonna be an in-between because “Animan” is where Adrien’s game truly shines!  Unfortunately, he uses it to coach Nino into trying to get a date with Marinette.  Go with what you know, I guess.   ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Alternatively titled: Adrien Flirts With Marinette Through His Bestie

  • Can we all just agree that Adrien giving Nino advice on how to score with Marinette is the cutest thing ever?
  • Nino literally tells Adrien this crush came out of nowhere.
  • Adrien’s all “yeah dude, IKR?!”
  • If I were you, I wouldn’t look so smug, Junior.  
  • Phase 1 of Operation: “Clueless Dorks” uh I mean “Give Nino the Confidence to Ask Alya Out Instea–” er…you know what?  We’ll just call it Phase 1.
  • PHASE 1
  • Ask Mari out on a date.
  • No, not me.  YOU.

See how this trainwreck goes below the cut!

HOT OFF THE PRESS!

Presenting PART ONE of my two-part EXCLUSIVE interview with @dixelatedproductions CEO @voodoodahl-vu . We talk about it all. The scandals. The confusion. The rebranding. And what lays in store for the future. Read it all here:

Muse: Welcome VoodooDahl to my first interview with you. I’m excited to have you here.

VoodooDahl: Me tooooo! I went back & forth on whether or not I should do this interview, but due to recent events…I keep being sent for, so here tf I am xD

Muse: So let’s jump right into it. For my readers who may not know

Muse: I just want to do a bit of background on you.

Muse: CEO. President. Manager. That’s an impressive resume. How did you come to be in the adult entertainment industry?

VoodooDahl: hehe yes, I’m a leader naturally, so I always end up climbing to the top of any organization I’m a part of

VoodooDahl: I’ve been on IMVU as Meraki (formerly my main account) for a little over two years. In that time I never explored the AP side of things. So I made a separate “hoe” account, which eventually became VoodooDahl. At the start of it, I met a girl with a porn production company and she introduced me to the tumblr world. That situation ended abruptly and I never actually got into the industry then. I got hired at a strip club and did that for a while. From there I ended up helping my good friend TessaMaree build her own club. From there she was offered Dragon (Productions). She pulled me on board to be her CEO. The rest is history.

Muse: I might have to make a hoe account o.o

VoodooDahl: babyyyy, oh the places you’ll go ^_^

Muse: What were you first impressions of the industry? The people, the vibe, the content.

VoodooDahl: Not good tbh. When I was first introduced to it, I was told that I’d get paid. When I found out that was a lie, I was over it haha. I spent my time at the club instead because I got paid in credits & gifts. But I had discovered the imvu world of Tumblr, so I kept an eye on it. I really enjoyed the creativity of it all, so I ended up keeping my tumblr going just as a free agent. And I got offered jobs with some of the major companies, but back then I didn’t know who was who or what company was known for what. Thinking back, if I knew then what I knew now, I would have quickly jumped on board with Imperial. But, you live & you learn.

Muse: @imperialxxxstacy is a company that is in the midst of joining a coalition spearheaded by Lowlife Entertainment to transform the industry into a somewhat safer, more unified environment, an effort many other companies are supporting. In the current atmosphere, where do you see yourself and your company standing in the industry in general?

VoodooDahl: I have no quarrels with any companies. I have personal issues with a couple people in the industry, but I don’t mix personal and business. I don’t do blacklists. Members of Dixelated are free to work with whoever they want with the only exception being Joseei. And I also instruct my members that Dragon Productions may not be tagged to anything Dixelated. They are free to work with Dragon members if they choose to, but they are not free to promote Dragon in any way, shape or form. In fact, I’ll show you the group page that refers to this.

Muse: *leans forward in interest* Please do

VoodooDahl: 

Muse: Your critics might say that working with Dragon members is an act of promotion in itself, giving them more resources in terms of more talent to work with. I’m aware that Dixelated has had issues with separating their brand from Dragon in the past and you have have been personally on the front lines to make it known that the separation is final. So I am going to ask 2 questions.

#1: Do you think allowing your members to work with Dragon members convinces people who still associate you guys with Dragon that you are indeed separated?

and #2: What do you say to your critics who would argue that allowing them to work with those members is synonymous with promoting the company?

VoodooDahl: I think me allowing my members to work with Dragon members shows that I know how to keep my personal feelings out of business decisions. I personally feel that so long as there are no dragon tags or logos on the work, then I am not promoting Dragon. I am promoting a model who happens to be employed by Dragon. And I know that soon those members will be at other companies, as Dragon is the cancer of the industry. Jess (owner of Diamond Enterprise) keeps holding that casket open, but that body is decomposed asf. Imma need her to close that casket & bury the bitch.


Muse:

Strong words. 

Muse: That leads me to my next question. Not to keep going back. But can you tell my readers about the very start of your journey in the industry. I think you first became known as CEO or president of Dragon productions. As you said earlier, you have dancing experience and had previously worked in the adult entertainment industry…but your controversial -and very brief - role at Dragon catapulted you into the spotlight. And I have to just say, I know it must have been tough to try and take on that company in the midst of so many scandals. So. Tell my readers about the behind-the-scenes events going on at that time.

VoodooDahl: Dragon first came into my space through Tess. She’s the owner of Provocations and I am a manager there. She met Joseei and the two of them became associates. If I’m not mistaken, he came to her because he also has a strip club and he wanted to collab on some things involving that. Don’t quote me on that because I’m not 100% certain. Anyhow, he had some kind of drama happen with Dragon and decided to step down. He liked Tess enough that he offered her Dragon.
VoodooDahl: Now, that being said, when I personally met Joseei, it was through Tess. I met him as “the guy with that club who wants to do business”. Then the two of them had some club business going on and he became the guy who Tes does business with who would always come to our club and park. (which annoyed tf outta me). At no point were Joe (Joseei) & I ever friends. We never had a single conversation. We never chilled in the same room. We were basically two people who did business with Tess. At this time, I was a model at Diamond, and Joe hired Tess as a pornstar at Dragon.

VoodooDahl: The first fallout of me & Joe happened pretty close to me meeting him. In the beginning, before I knew him, I was cordial. It was when I went to Dragon Productions HQ to hangout with Tess, as she was spending a lot of time there. Anyway, Joseei used to take pics of us chilling and I had no problems with posting them. Until I did have a problem.

Muse: What happened that made you upset?

VoodooDahl: That problem came in because he posted a pic and the caption he used, he referred to himself as ‘daddy’. At the time, I had a dom, who had a strict rule that stated that I was not allowed to refer to anyone as ‘daddy’ besides him. So when i saw Joe’s caption, I had issues. And I voiced them. Well, Joe didn’t wanna hear what I was saying, so I commented on the pic directly and reblogged it with my own caption. My caption was something to the effect of ‘not MY daddy, but you get the drift’. Just a lil clarity. Babyyyy, that was the first time I learned how vile a human being he is.

Muse: What was his reaction to your clarification?

VoodooDahl: he called me all types of dumb bitches and hoes. told me I need to learn how to separate business from personal and that everybody knows it’s just a picture. But I didn’t agree with him. I felt like he was trying to make the picture look like something it was not. He took that as a personal attack against him. Then he threatened to tag ‘daddy’ to the pics as a way to get him to fall out with me. But Daddy is a very smart man, so I invited him to do so.

Muse: Other women have had similar experiences with him. So let me just try and make sure I understand. You’re telling me that this guy, Joseei, insulted you? And threatened to sabotage your relationship with your man simply because you commented on a misleading picture to clarify that he was not your ‘daddy’…a word which carries significance to people in bdsm relaitonships.

VoodooDahl: Yep. He went full fuckboy on me about it.

Muse: What were some of the things he said to you?

VoodooDahl: “don’t contradict me and make me look stupid. it’s work and nothing else Nat. you know that. it’s stupid that we are having this chat. stop mixing personal/real.”

VoodooDahl: to which I replied: “first the fuck of all watch how the fuck you talk to me. second of all, I have a daddy/dom on imvu and one of his rules is that I cannot refer to anyone other than him as ‘daddy’. so when you did it, I told you it made me uncomfortable. if you don’t give a fuck how i feel about it, then that’s fine too. i just know not to fuck with your ass no more. have a good fucking evening sir.

Muse: Oh my.

VoodooDahl: to which he replied “shall we tag daddy then”….I invited him to do so. Told him Daddy’s name. 

Muse: Was Dixelated created at this time?

VoodooDahl: Nope. Not yet. At this this time, i decided that I would take from him everything and leave him nothing.

Muse: What do you mean?

VoodooDahl: I didn’t share these feelings with anyone. This was just me in my own mind, deciding I wanted to silence him. Because at this time, I started seeing tons of other people’s posts about their own dealings with him. So it was clear to me that he needed to go. So I made my moves in silence, and ended up landing as the CEO of Dragon. Some of those moves caused me to be a fake bitch. But I didn’t mind being a fake bitch to such a vile piece of trash. So yes, when Jess wanted to mediate me and Joe’s reconcilliation, I went along.

Muse: So I’m looking at an older tumblr post you made - you and Tessa, I assume - in which you are rather strongly asserting that Joseei is no longer in management of Dragon Productions and that you two are now fully in control. Since that statement, management of Dragon has shifted and it is still unclear to many whether or not he still controls the company.

VoodooDahl: Joe is and will always be Dragon. Point blank. Period.

MAP6 Lockscreen

Member: Sign
Group: MAP6
Lockscreen

  • Please LIKE or REBLOG if you download/use this pic!
  • My edit! DO NOT reclaim as yours!

So….I know the struggle…It’s hard to find lockscreens or wallpaper of your favourite groups if they are underrated. So I decided that I’m going to make lockscreens of these underrated bands. Also I’m going to include some opinions and infos along with MV links from these groups. 


The letters in the group’s name were originally pronounced individually and they stood for M(arching) A(round) (the) P(lanet), which meant that they would like to become globar stars, but later they changed it and they simply became MAP6 (only the pronunciation changed). They group’s members were originally in a group called A-Prince (excluding Sign). They debuted in 2015 and they are under Dream T Entertainment. The group has 5 members: Their leader Minhyuk, who originally debuted in a group called DAON, then he joined A-Prince, and now he is a part of MAP6. Their lead vocalist and lead dancer is J.Jun. He can do taekwondo and he’s main attraction is his amazing smile. He can also do magic tricks with cards and can make his double eyelids turn into just one, because when he was in middle school he used to practice magic tricks. The group’s main vocalist, Sign who tends to act like the youngest of the group. The group’s main dancer, vocalist and visual, Sun, who wants to be the cutest in the group, but when he tries to do cute acts he always fails. Also he like to cook for his members. Last but not least their youngest member, J.Vin, who has a very extra personality (in a good way). He always fools around, but can be mature when he needs to. He loves sweets and pastry like crazy. These guys need more recognition, because they are incredibly talented and very entertaining too. Please check out the links below to get to know them better!

How to Avoid Spoilers and Spoiler Etiquette for Tagging

Did you miss this weeks episode? Have you missed this season’s episodes in general? But you still intend to watch it and don’t want spoilers?

There are a few things you can do. Most of them means you need something like Tumblr Savior or XKIT. Basically none of this works on mobile. 


1- Blacklist the show.

This seems obvious but a lot of people still need to be told to do this. I sometimes will get angry that someone posted something without tagg- … oh look I forgot to blacklist this tag, nevermind my bad. Seriously. Did it just last night. I was about to be pissed when I realized that the post was tagged. I, for some reason, hadn’t bothered to tag for the show nor the show’s spoiler tags.

Get preemptive with this shit. Most people are reactionary with their tagging. I blacklisted this show because something already got spoiled, but I should have known to blacklist it before.

If you’re just a week behind, you can just blacklist the spoiler tags. For instance, I have “supernatural spoilers” and “spn spoilers” blacklisted all the time, unless I’m 100% up to date and usually the season needs to be over. Right now I’m a season behind so I have “supernatural” and “spn” also blacklisted.


2 - Blacklist your main ships/fav characters.

If you’re like me, you probably end up following a bunch of people that either post exclusively about the show, your ship, or your character, or they at least post some good content along those lines. Well, just to be safe, especially if you don’t want spoilers for those ships/characters specifically, blacklist them until you catch up. 

Unfortunately, a lot of people think tagging ships or characters is mutually exclusive from tagging the show. Back to my supernatural example: I follow someone that posts a lot of destiel, but they don’t always tag destiel posts as “spn” or “supernatural.” They do almost always tag those posts as “destiel,” however. So the ship gets blacklisted.

There is also this notion being pushed in a lot of corners of fandom that you shouldn’t tag a ship or character, especially if they’re very, very popular, with the media name because it “floods” the tag. That’s bullshit. A huge reason to tag is to allow for blacklisting. At the very least, tag it with the spoiler tags. This keeps it out of the main show tag (kind of, not really, tumblr is garbage) but still makes it easy to blacklist with one or two tags, instead of needing tags for each character and ship.


3 - Unfollow people.

This is one that works on mobile. It’s also the least favorite one. Some people try to tag for spoilers. Some people just keep forgetting to tag when, for instance, they live blog. Or they’re reblogging and they don’t tag anything. Maybe their on mobile and can’t be bothered to tag/tag “excessively.” Maybe they don’t give a fuck.

I used to follow a lot of people that seemed to have zero regard for other people when it came to spoilers. A huge reveal from the flash was spoiled by some jackass (read: really nice person who didn’t think before posting) that saw gifs of the reveal, felt strong emotions from the reveal, and reblogged without a single fucking tag. At the time, I had everything blacklisted. “the flash,” “the flash spoilers,” “flash,” “flash spoilers,” several ships, a few characters (including the character the reveal was about). But all the blacklisting in the world won’t help if they don’t fucking tag it…


4 - Blacklist the blog.

… unless you blacklist the blog itself.

Sometimes you don’t want to unfollow. Sometimes, you’re emotionally attached to the blog or you want it there for when you catch up. But they don’t tag. They never tag. I follow several blogs that are predominantly shadowhunters material. And let me tell you, very few actually tag the show “shadowhunters.” They don’t tag “malec,” they don’t tag “sh spoilers,” they don’t tag “sh cast.” Which is sooooooooooooo frustrating.

Some blogs have said they don’t need to tag because you’re following them and you should know that’s all they post. I followed a coldflash blog that refused to tag coldflash for just that reason. However, a general trend, when blogs refuse to tag because everything would be tagged that way… they tend not to tag anything actively useful. In my experience, these blogs are less likely to tag for triggers, very rarely tag spoilers, don’t tag for cast posts… If they’re a gen blog, some tag for ships and characters, but if they’re a ship blog, that’s unlikely.

So if you follow a blog that doesn’t respect spoiler rules of etiquette, blacklist them. You aren’t unfollowing them, they’ll be there when you’re ready, but you can now control your experience with them, where previously you were unable to.

NOTE: This can work in other areas too. Is a blog taking a turn in tone? Maybe blacklist them for a while and see if it reverts back later. Is the blogger going through something that makes a lot of their posts upset you? It’s okay to blacklist them and cut yourself off from that, you don’t owe them anything. Do you really like the blogger but suddenly their posts, which you’ve always enjoyed before, are weighing on you or pulling you down? Blacklist them for now. That’s okay.


5 - Take a step back from tumblr.

This also works for mobile /s. I’ve taken a step back from tumblr for a lot of reasons. I left the site for about 6-8 months a year or so ago, because I was becoming obsessed with needing to see every post on my dash. I’ve gone off for a week or so because I got pissed off at spoilers. And sometimes, when I know there’s going to be a lot of content that everyone’s talking about and I can’t avoid, I’ll bunker down. 

Bunker down, in this case, refers to remaining on the site but only accessing your own activity page. You can see who interacts with you, directly, but you don’t have to see what everyone is saying independent of your posts. This can be a preemptive form of control on your experience.*

This is sort of like the “abstinence” form of avoiding spoilers, with bunkering down being sort of like the 2nd base of fandom interaction.

You can still message people and reply to asks, with this tactic. The goal is to stay off your dash and out of browsing. Control your input by just interacting with reactions to your posts or direct conversations with bloggers.

* Note: This can work really well if you are being overwhelmed by a trend on your dash/the site, as well. If you’re following discourse blogs, for instance. Sometimes things get to heavy and bunkering down can allow you to temporarily escape that and still feel like you’re involved.


If anyone has any other suggestions, please feel free to message me or send in an ask.

Now let’s get into spoiler etiquette. Here are some suggestions for keeping your blog free of spoilers and making it a safe place for fans that miss episodes.


1 - TAG YOUR POSTS!

I know this seems obvious but I like to think I already demonstrated how blogs fail to tag. If you are a shipper that keeps tagging the ship and not the show, tag the show. Especially if you post during/immediately after new episodes. Your ship might be what the post is about but there can be spoilers for unrelated matters included. The same goes for character posts.

If you’re a blog that is 100% show/character/ship, still, TAG YOUR POSTS. Does it get tedious tagging every post if you’re posting a lot? Sure. But still do it. If you don’t care about the spoiler thing (kind of douchey but whatever), do it for the spreading of your blog, as your posts will not be included in tag searches.

If it’s simply that you don’t feel like tagging every post, get Auto-tagger on XKIT (I don’t know if there are similar features on other extensions). Auto-tagger let’s you set up words/phrases to always tag with. You can control this based on post type, where the post originated, etc. I use this feature to keep the tags from the person I’m reblogging it from - I can erase their specific, commenting tags and keep their pertinent ones without having to type it all in. If you’re a blog that ONLY posts malec, for instance, set it up to tag malec on every post (and “shadowhunters” or “sh”).

If you’re a live blogger, set it up before the episode to tag all your posts with the spoiler tags. Or give your live blogging a specific tag and warn your followers. Be consistent week to week so your followers can block a single tag. Remember that your followers see your last post before the earlier ones, so it’s easy to miss the post where you say what your tag is. Make it well known.


2 - Put things under cuts.

When a huge reveal happens, consider putting posts related to that under a cut, at the very least the night of the airing. This is also considerate of mobile users. If your follower is then curious and opens the post, it’s their own damn fault that it’s been spoiled.

This can also prevent your loyal followers from spoiling things as well. That huge flash spoiler I discussed from earlier? That was from a misc blog. Someone’s personal tumblr that they posted all their fandom shit on, their life stories, their selfies and interesting bugs they found walking to work, etc. They just jump the gun on posting and are inconsistent with tagging, particularly in the frenzy of postings and reblogging after a new episode. Had the big reveal been under a cut, I wouldn’t have cared that they reblogged without tags. I wouldn’t have clicked the keep reading.


3 - Get XKIT.

In case you brushed off #1, because you don’t tag your shit and you don’t want to tag every fucking post, let me be clear.

You can get a plugin on XKIT that auto tags all your posts. All of them. You don’t do anything. You can set it to tag all your picture posts as “pics,” you can set it to tag all your reblogs as “not my shit,” you can set it to tag your posts with the blog names you reblogged from. Whatever. You can do near anything with it.

Not wanting to tag because “it’s too much work” is you being willfully ignorant that actually it doesn’t have to be.


4 - Tag *in* post.

A lot of people complain that they’re mobile users and so tagging is a lot of work and also they can’t get XKIT, blah blah blah.

Well blacklisting works for shit in the posts too. So hit that post with a taglist at the end: “sh, sh spoilers, shadowhunters, shadowhunters spoilers, liveblogging,” whatever. If you’re posting a lot, copy the tags you should be using. It’ll save you time and it’s not difficult.


5 - Don’t tag with JUST the word “spoiler(s).”

This one always gets me. A blog tries to be courteous. Maybe not all their followers have seen the new episode. So they tag it. But they tag it as “spoiler.”

That doesn’t do me any good. If I blacklisted the word “spoiler(s),” then I’d be blacklisting every single post that might be a spoiler. If I specifically don’t want to see spoilers for teen wolf, so I blacklist the term “spoiler” itself, now I don’t get most of the posts about the dceu. About mcu and infinity war. About other shows/movies/books just coming out. About meta specifically about the nature of spoilers (like this).

When something is blacklisted, you can choose to still see posts on a case by case basis, but if they’re just wrapped up in a “spoiler” ribbon, how will I know if it’s one of the safe spoilers (i.e., not specifically the show I was targeting with my blacklist) or the actual spoilers?

If you’re going to tag, thank you. Seriously. Thank you. But please, tag specifically.


6 - Don’t use ambiguous tags/tags used for other things.

Speaking of specific tagging, hey, be specific. Actually make sure your short hand can’t be confused with something else/is used only (or nearly exclusively) by your show.

If you did a search on tumblr right now for “spn,” nearly every post and blog is about the cw show supernatural. However, let’s look at teen wolf and game of thrones.

The traditional shorthand for game of thrones is “got.” See a problem? If I blacklist “got” then I blacklist everything that uses those three letters/that word. Someone says, “I just got the new pokemon!” … blacklisted. 

Then you have teen wolf, which gets referred to as “tw” a lot in conversation. Understandable. However “tw” IS NOT a good tag for tagging the show. I just did a tumblr search on “tw” as a tag. While all of the “related” tags were from the show, of the first six featured blogs, one was about the show teen wolf. Two were about eating disorders, one was about self harm, one was an asian porn blog, and one was actually a supernatural trigger blog. Because supernatural is always relevant.

A good chunk of the posts seem to be about teen wolf. A good chunk are also about eating disorders and self harm. This is because, while “tw” is technically the initials of the show, it is predominantly used on this site to refer to “trigger warnings.” If I blow “tw” then I am blocking absolutely every post marked “tw” for trigger purposes (tw self harm, tw food, tw incest, etc). If I want to block that trigger, I will. There are a lot of triggers that don’t bother me and it’d be annoying having them blocked.

Recently over at @autism-asks we had to switch our referencing and tagging of “special interests” from “si” to “spin.” This is because “si” is widely already used to refer to and tag “self injury.” We want people to be able to tag for what’s relevant to their needs, so we adjusted accordingly and asked our followers to do the same.

So before using short hand, maybe do a tumblr search. It works best if it’s without blocking explicit content. If you decide, for instance, you wish to tag posts about “billy joel” as “bj”… well, you might be surprised at what that actually encompasses on tumblr. There might be words you aren’t familiar with, multiple acronyms might exist, or other communities might already have adopted that tag. “st” can stand for either star trek, stranger things, or numerous other things (I found star wars posts, photography, steven universe, spirit tracks, and porn because there’s always porn).

If you insist on using an abbreviation, consider using a modifier. “tw mtv” or “tw tv” for instance. The flash fandom often tags things “flash cw” and most (considerate) sherlock fans use “bbc sherlock.” This prevents posts about something like adobe flash, flash fic, flash big bangs, etc from being blocked, or from other shows with characters of the same name (sherlock from elementary or the rdj sherlock movies or the original books) from being blocked when you’re only trying to block a single show.


Probably the most effective thing, though, is something only @staff can do. So tumblr @staff, maybe work blacklists into the site itself so everyone can use it. So that blacklists can be tied to the account itself. You know how useless ns/fw tags are if you’re actually using mobile, a public computer, a work computer? I can’t implement XKIT on every public computer I use. The block feature is great, it is, but blacklisting isn’t the same as blocking. Most users don’t want to block every blog they might need to blacklist tags for. So please work that into the site.

w/c:1.3k

Tumblr, Niall has decided, is a weird site.

Blogs about the loads of different ways to make lasagna, the what’s “in” in the fashion world, pictures of the Seven Great Wonders of the World, and yes, there are even blogs about porn (which Niall might have accidentally clicked on once or twice) - he’s been online enough to know that there are no limits in the Tumblr universe.

4K and thank you’s

I reached 4k this week which is unweaaalll and I figured it’s time to thank everyone who made the last two years amazing for me.  


@tradleytrash - Jenn! I feel like I’ve been following you forever! Thank you so much for being so nice to me from the start! It makes me sad when I see you go through some rough times but I’ve always been so awkward at approaching people so just know that I am here whenever you need somebody to talk to. Also I think I don’t say it often but I love your writing - I hope you always find the motivation to write amazing stuff.

@tradleyxo - Mary, my pretty aussie friend! Sometimes I feel like we’re one person bc we like the same things lmao but I’m really happy we started talking. You always crack me up with your reaction pics and I love freaking out over Brad with you! College is a bitch but I’m sure you’d slay it.

@vstradley - Arii I don’t even know what to say. Pretty sure the last few months would’ve been very dull for me if I hadn’t met you. Like 90% of the time you (and sam) are the reason why I’m laughing. Sorry if I annoy you all the time with pics of the boys lol I know you secretly love it anyway. You’re honestly amazing, your vids are A+++, you’re a really good friend and i love you so much. I’m really hoping and praying that you get to see the boys soon so you could have your way hug with tris! Hell elmo rise!

@smileforbradley - SAMMM. I love you. Seriously. Sometimes I feel like you’re the little sister I never had and I want to protect you at all times bc you’re the sweetest person I’ve ever met. You (and arii) are my #1 source for all pics of the boys and talking and laughing with you guys is the best part of my day. Don’t ever feel like you’re annoying me okay I actually love it when you tag me in everything! And I know you’ll meet and hug Brad soon enough. I feel it in my bones. (yes i just said that sshh)

Special mention blogs: If you’re not here I’m very sorry but I’m really lazy and my head is about to explode BUT I STILL LOVE YOU PLEASE DON’T FEEL BAD!!! (Also some changed urls and I have no idea where they are anymore)

@brads-lucky-pig @bradleyy @bradsradical @britishvamps @bradwillstyles @brads-bandana @bradlleysimpsons @condoraball @condoraatheexplorer @connorfuckingball @dietbronnor @forthevamps @homeforvampettes @jamiemcvey @justfourboys @notcalledconnor @peachybrad @polaroidconnor @princessbradley @that-british-boy-band @the-vamps-uk @thevampsfeels @vampstrash @veethevampette @yoursleepingheart

I made this blog in 2014 just to look for pics of the boys - I never expected to talk to anyone or even make some friends from different parts of the world. I was surprised at how welcoming and friendly everyone was in the tumblr vamps fandom back when I first started and it was the first time in a long time that I felt like I really belong somewhere. I think this is why I’ve always had a soft spot for new fans who send asks/requests or messages. I just want everyone to feel like this is a place where you belong, where everyone helps everyone out and where no one would judge you for being yourself. We’re all family here.

So if you’re new or you want to make friends, don’t hesitate to drop us a message/ask! 

PS: To all my little ones who reblog/like everything but I don’t follow, IM SORRY FOR MY LAZY ASS BUT I SEE YOU AND I APPRECIATE YOU AND I LOVE YOU I HOPE YOUR DAY DOESN’T SUCK AND YOU GET TO PET A DOG OR A CAT TODAY

Hugs from the other side of the world, Ash x

Hello, the Tumblr. Your friendly neighbourhood Marciana here, back again with another friendly reminder about reposts and reblogs, and why one of them is good and the other is bad. This post is going to be a bit long, but bear with me.

Now I’ve been seeing quite a lot of reposts happening in some of my tracked tags, and it’s just not okay. But then again, some people might be NEW to the whole concept of reposts vs reblogs, so here’s your overview.

“Reblog” is when you see a post that you like, either on your dashboard or in the tags, and click on the small icon on the lower right corner of the post and click “REBLOG” to put it in your blag. Very simple, three steps at the most.

“Reposts” are when original posts, fanart and/or graphics such as edits/manips and GIFs/GIFsets made by other people are posted by OTHER people who did NOT create them, for various reasons. Reposting happens in a few ways:

  • Saving the fanart/graphic/GIF/s to your own computer,uploading to Tumblr all over again, making an entire new post on your own blog, not giving credit or sourcing back to the original source/creator.
  • Taking a screenshot of the single post you like (be it a joke, or a gifset, or an edit, what have you), cropping the screenshot in a photo manipulating program (Paint, Photoshop, Photoscape, Gimp, etc.), uploading the screenshot to Tumblr, making a post with the screenshot, no link back to the original nor permission from the original post’s creator
  • WeHeartIt, Rebloggy or something like that (I’m not sure I’ve only seen it for a couple of days), or other image archiving/blogging website that does not link back to the original source on the internet of the picture or content of the picture

So as you can see, it takes a whole lot more effort to repost than to just reblog, but that’s not the only reasaon that reposts are frowned upon. Reposts essentially take the credit (and the notes) away from the original creators/artists/editors, even though that may not be the intent of the reposter. It’s like doing someone’s homework for them and then watching them take all the credit when their homework turns out to be perfect but their paper got graded and/or noticed before yours. Of course, it’s understandable that a blogger would like to be found by interesting people, they want the notes and the followers, and for others, reposting other people’s fanart, edits and graphics is a way of appreciating what they’ve done. But there are PLENTY of other ways of doing that without violating copyright policies as set in Tumblr’s rules and regulations.

“But Marciana,” you point out, “What if we’d REALLY like to post them on our own blog so that people going through the tags can find us, like us and hopefully follow us?” Then please do not hesitate to ask permission from the original creators/artists. Some will say yes, others will say no. Whatever the decision, be respectful of it. Saying “I do what I want” and going through with the repost anyway doesn’t make you a cool rebel, it just makes you a jerk that can easily be reported to Tumblr staff through a specific e-mail address. Several posts AND blogs have already been deleted and suspended because of serial violations of the copyright laws of Tumblr, which now thankfully also cover GIFsets. In the event that the original source gives their permission, please do not forget to link back to the original post. Other artists will be fine with you leaving their name/Tumblr URL in the post as a source, but the point is to ask first. If in case you can’t find the original source anymore, make sure to say so in your post. “I can’t find the original source, if this is yours, please let me know so I can properly ask your permission/give you credit.”

Oh, and please take note: WeHeartIt is not a legitimate source, as it archives photos from all over the internet and NEVER links back to their original sources when you post them here on Tumblr.

“Okay fine,” you say, “But what about using people’s jpgs and gifs as reactions to posts? How is that different from illegal reposting?” To be honest, it’s not VERY different, except for the fact that if you use someone’s jpg or gif as a reaction, it’s not really seen as you claiming it for your own. Almost everyone on Tumblr is using everyone else’s stuff for reaction anyway that at this point, this has become the gray area. Still, if the jpg or gif you want to use is watermarked with the creator’s URL, ask permission to use their stuff if you want to be very sure.

While we’re on the subject of permission, let me bring up one more permission issue that needs to be talked about. Some people are very good at ‘shopping pictures together for shipping or ficcing purposes. That’s all well and good, until you cross a certain line. There are pictures out there of fans with their favorite celebrities or actors that they’ve met, and these shots usually make for good posing for shippy pictures. The problem with doing that is that some people will callously cut the fan out of their own picture, which is their representation of a special day or moment that they had, to serve someone else’s purpose. This can be, and has been, very, very disrespectful of the fans, who only uploaded their pics in the first place to share the fun with the fandom. I’ve asked in the future for people to please stop doing this, but of course, thats not going to happen in a flash. If you’re going to insist on doing it, get permission from the original blogger of the picture, and for the love of fandom, please respect whatever answer they give you. This kind of thing puts people off of sharing their awesome pictures and stories with the rest of the fans, some of whom will never be so lucky as to even be in the same city as their fave actors/singers/celebrities, let alone attend a con they’ll be in and pay heaps of money for something very, very special.

For you creators/editors/artists out there who would like to prevent your stuff from getting reposted, my only advise is to watermark or sign your things. That’s not really going to physically stop the actual reposting from happening, but at least you’ll know that it’s yours, and if you wish to report the reposting, you have proof that it was yours at all.

That’s it for now, you guys. I hope this post, even though it’s been long, has been informative and helpful, and here’s to less reposts in the tags, and more respect in the fandom.

(Special thanks to bifca for the fantastic idea for this post.)

Hey guys! 
I made a post about wanting to reread the Twilight Saga, since it’s been years and I’m feeling nostalgic, and quite a lot of you have expressed interest to do it as well, so I decided to make it a blog event :)

What’s going to happen:

* the readalong will start September 1st 2015 and will run throughout the month
* the schedule will look like this:
Sept 1st - Sept 6th - Twiligh
Sept 7th - Sept 13th - New Moon
Sept 14th - Sept 21rd - Eclipse
Sept 22nd - Sept 30th - Breaking Dawn

* totally okay to join whether it’s your first time reading these books or you’re rereading them, like I am
* feel free to post pics, quotes, reactions, live blog, anything that goes through your mind 
* I’d love it if prior to the start of the readalong, you guys could post an introductory post - your name, where you’re from, your age, if it’s your first time reading these books, if not, when did you first read them, if you’ve seen the movies and whether you enjoyed them, maybe even a picture with you and your Twilight books, if you’re up for it :) - I have to stress that you don’t have to make this introductory post, only if you feel comfortable doing it
* we’re going to be using the tag #twilightreadalong, so make sure you tag your post so everyone can see them
* I have to stress this: no form of bashing or hate towards anyone taking part in this is acceptable. We’re doing this for nostalgia sake and to have fun, so please respect that. It’s okay to not like the books, to hate read them, to have a negative opinion about them, just please don’t attack anyone personally over anything related :)

If anyone has any questions about this, my ask box is open! 

And I’d also appreciate it if you guys could spread the word, so reblog this post!

Thank youuuu and I’ll see you guys September 1st!

How to Avoid QoS Spoilers!

Not everyone will be able to get their greedy hands on Queen of Shadows at the same time, and not everyone will be able to finish it at the same time, so here are some things we, as a fandom, should do to respect other readers:

  • For the first couple of weeks, place QoS talks under ‘read more’ tags. (Here is how you do that.) It is preferable that you do this with ALL of your spoilery things including gif reactions and inchoerent scream-typing reactions (explained later). Please don’t just title something ‘QOS SPOILERS’ and continue saying whatever it is you’re saying because eyes will jump.
  • Tag all of your spoilers as ‘qos spoilers’ and/or ‘queen of shadows spoilers’. This includes things you post originally AND things you reblog. It includes quotes, edits, aesthetics, fanfiction, text posts, and pictures of the page you’re reading, etc. Tagging stuff for about a couple of months seems fair.
  • Also TAG YOUR REACTIONS and not just spoilery reviews and talks. Tag them as ‘qos reactions’ and/or ‘queen of shadows reactions’. This includes things that say “oMFG i COULDN’t BE HAPPieR!” This might seem silly, but if a die hard Rowaelin/Chaolaena/Doraelin shipper says that, guess what we’re going to think. Plus, some people might not want any spoilers at all even if they share the same ship as you.
  • If it is related in any way to QoS, tag it ‘qos’ and/or ‘queen of shadows’. This includes official things (like released quotes or pics of the book or magazine/newspaper reviews) and fanmade stuff. It also includes harmless things like videos of you opening a package that contains the 656 page book.
  • If any of the above tags apply to whatever it is you are posting/reposting, use multiple because some people might only be blocking some of the tags, but not all of them.
  • Tell your followers what tags you will be using! Make posts, include it in your bio, make a page in your sidebar, tell them in the tags of this post if you choose to reblog it, whatever. The more detailed you are about your plans/explanations, the better.
  • Other tags you can use: ‘qos review’, ‘qos quote’, ‘qos pic’, you get the idea. Just let your followers know what you’ll be using and, unless you feel like you’ll die if you do so, remember to use the ‘read more’ button. ACOTAR was spoiled for me in a series of gif reactions which I didn’t think would explain the entire plot.
  • Please, please tag things. It isn’t that hard. Even if something seems harmless, please tag it.
  • Please, please use the ‘read more’ button. I know it dissuades people from looking at your post, but that is the point. You can always remake your post later (like in a few weeks later) if you want more notes for it. Also, if you are reblogging something, you can always alter someone’s original post to include a ‘read more’ button. It doesn’t matter what the original poster thinks about that. It is your blog, and you control what your followers will see.

And, of course, this is what you can do to help yourself:

  • You can always go on a hiatus. Your followers, I’m sure, won’t mind if you are absent for a few days to hibernate in a cave with chocolate, tissues, and Queen of Shadows. (Just let them know you’ll be gone as a courtesy.) Of course, when you come back, Tumblr will be a burning mess, but you’ll be able to jump back into the chaos easily.
  • If you can’t stay away, then here is how you blacklist tags. (If this is confusing, you can just google “how to…”) This will block posts that are tagged with whatever it is you want to stay away from.
  • Also, remember that readers live in different time zones and things may start being posted before it is September 1st for you. Bookstores may also shelve copies earlier and a Tumblr user is bound to pick one up.

Thank you, and happy reading.

anonymous asked:

Hi, Gabi) I also think that HL are going to come out in late april/early may. Can you share your thoughts about how exectly are they going to do it? Thanks:)

What’s this question really? Too early anon or too late. 

I don’t want to think about the first pics when they’re papped solo, the first official HQ’s when we can see them walking next to each other, Louis wearing one of his cute lil jumpers and his blue Nikes, Harry wearing his beautiful hair in a bun, some amazing floral shirt and blue jeans, tattoos showcased. I don’t want to think about the shock we would feel when we zommed in on Harry’s right arm, noticing his first tattoo on his Things I can arm. I’m a crying mess thinking about how they would walk next to each other, bodies/hips occassionally touching, legs and hands hanging in sync, both glowing, the dimple Louis grew for Harry present on both of their beautiful happy faces. GIDDY, IN LOVE. We think Louis and Harry are glowing now? We are not ready for that kind of glow that would surround them after they are out.

I don’t want to think about the HL picture which Harry posted on his IG with the caption: “Still the One” and a bazillion of hearts, I don’t want to think about where the heck I would be: office, home, travelling??? I don’t want to think about the tears rolling down my face by thinking about how damn happy they are, I don’t want to think about what their moms would feel, their sisters, family! I don’t want to think about those deathly hugs ot3 would give them and cry with them together, making a pile of silly boys and I don’t want to think about nIALL going all sentimental and asking for a fucking selfie while literally everyone’s eyes are full of tears. I don’t want to think about the tweets, the IG posts, the HQ pictures, I don’t want to think about them going to shows, giving interviews, conqueering the entire world, changing the LGBTQ views of so many people, I don’t want to think about all the people whose LIFE would be changed and be proud of who they are or who they aren’t.

I don’t want to think about how they will stop telling each other: soon baby soon and hug each other, dreading the next stunt/bearding day.

Can you imagine how amazingly free they will feel when they can finally hold hands in public? When they can SHOW the world that this man next to them means the world? When they can give honest answers about Strong/Happily/RTR etc being their favorite songs instead of Best song ever?  When they can finally open up about songwriting and say this was written because I felt trapped or that was written because Ii wanted to show him how much I loved him? Or this was written because we needed an anthem to Harry and Louis so we wrote Through the Dark?

When they can just laugh at the girlfriend questions and look at ot3 because they sure are not requied to answer? When they will talk about the songwriting process and these 2 just look at each other giggling with fond? When they talk about holidays and family and they don’t have to deny they are part of each other’s family? When they will go to holidays in whatever places of the world and some nice fans catch them and take a picture where they are hugging and the fans pretend to be annoyed just for fun but then make a normal picture and do the thumbs up because they really are not annoyed with Harry and Louis ‘cause they are so proud of them? When they will get questions about future? Like Barbara Walters type of questions? When they can say it again they want to marry each other and have kids? And Harold being cheeky and adding “even as young as we are”? And basically reenacting that interview… Can you imagine how disgusting their twitter (@Louis_Styles_Tomlinson) will be with selfies and food and how much sassiness will Louis give to his spouse over social media? Like it used to be. Can you imagine their selfies? Can you imagine how colorful Harry’s (and Louis’ new IG) will be? Can you imagine how we will be busy making masterposts of coming out reactions sooner than later? How people will share their stories of how much HL mean to them and how happy we are for them, how brave is to come out at such a young age. Can you imagine how damn busy we will be with reblogging tweets from a massive amount of supporters who do sports, acting, music… etc. Can you imagine their moms, how they would feel? Because I can certainly see the sisters, moms and family just crying on each other’s shoulders from happiness. They were as much closeted as HL was. Can you imagine their pictures about Harry and Louis? We would cry our eyes out for the mom’s tweet or insta pic of how much they love them and how proud they are. We would not see a thing from the tears. Can you imagine all of this? Really, can you?

It will be insane!! Their story is so real, and when Harry at age 17 said FAMILY home when asked if they move into a bachelor pad. Family! Seventeen! Fucking seventeen!!!! Then the interviewer asked back: bachelor pad? NO, family home. Harry corrected again. Crazy. This is not even Disney. They can hide i the nearest corner. This is some Notebook level shit! And Notebook was based on a partially true story and Sparks made some changes to make it more romantic. But these two… The thing that gets to me most is that Tom Dailey or NPH&Burtka were not working together. These 2 are. They were there with/for each other when the band was created and when they heard from Simon he would sign them. They live every fricking moment together and not only that but they fell in love in the process and with all the shit and banning we have recently heard they still decided it was worth to fight.

How desperate those times were when they knew it was still years till they were out of modest’s hands??! How can you go to sleep and wake up with an emptiness in your heart that this closeting will go on for fucking years??! Yet they just looked at the body sprawled next to them and decided it is so worth it. T-H-I-S is what gets me the most. Hiding is one thing but fighting against the most brutal closet is the biggest fucking revelation of love!!!!

What the hell will we do when they are papped solo?????? REMEMBER LAIRPORT???? And when they touch? And when they CO on insta cause I swear it has to be a cute selfie otherwise I will demand an explanation for the B/W no face no colors pictures!!

What will we do when we see the first headlines confirming they are together? What will we do when all those famous people will tweet their support? What will we do when they go to a serious late night talk show to make it official? Holding hands? Maybe answering FIRSTS questions? “First I love you” or “first kiss” and whatever.

What will we do when they will talk about each other with that fond on their faces? And the other will look at the talker as if he hung the moon? What will we do please tell me because it would be nothing like these Des HL dinners, or lairport or when HE GOT THE DAGGER. No, it will be INSANE. I N S A N E.


Drops mic. Drops dead.

anonymous asked:

Hi! Can you please repeat the reasons why you think that FitzSimmons is save (from dying)?, because I'm reaaally freaking out over the promo and all the people listing exactly why it's proof that Fitz's the one to die :( I keep repeating to myself that they would never get rid if FS just like that, 'cause they are the heart of the show and all that, but with them finally being together and having some sense of completion on that front I can't help but being very scared for them both :(

Hi Anon!

All right folks consider this my grand master post of why neither of Fitzsimmons will be the Fallen Agent.   Why they are safe.  I have notes in here from others on the Crazy Theory Train who were with me in making the Great and Powerful Timeline, @jessiecrimefighter and @blake-wyatt

I know everyone is worried and upset.  The promo team did its job and freaked everyone out.  So now I’ll do mine!   

Here we go!

  • They’ve been in the background for 3b - no real character arcs or closure for Jemma’s guilt or Fitz’s insecurities. Person who dies will have been heavily featured and story drawing to an end. 
  • Since they got together in 17/18 we’ve only had glimpses of their relationship - hasn’t really been explored, still a lot of stuff unresolved, lot of potential for new storylines next season.
  • FS are not just a ship, they’re a pair, a duo. The show’s marketing has treated them like the one character since the beginning. Iain and Elizabeth always do interviews and promotional stuff together. ‘Fitzsimmons’ is a character, an element of the show in its own right. Killing one of them off doesn’t make any sense - as you loose them both.
    • Look how fast Fitz got Jemma back in A.
  • The show has gotten a lot of mileage out of the FS relationship, a lot of popular and critical acclaim for the actors and the storylines. It doesn’t make sense for the show to spend three seasons building that up, then to just kill one of them off. It doesn’t just kill Fitz or Jemma, it kills Fitzsimmons.
  • The character who was left behind wouldn’t ever be able to move on or end up with anyone else without the fandom rioting!   There wont’ be a fandom left.  
    • I for one WILL stop watching if either one of them dies.  I’ve stuck with a lot of shows after loosing major characters but here, no. because it makes no sense and it would be for pure shock value, nothing more.  
  • There is also the fact that Jed and Mo created Fitzsimmons, that they are based a little on their relationship and they have said that they’re very proud of their popularity, that FS are very special to them.
  • Also, there is Elizabeth being too damn happy in that FB video, talking about filming her favorite scene of the season, Iain smiling when she mentioned it, and Iain saying it was a nice story.
  • the EW journalist who said she spoke to the person who dies, but she didn’t interview Iain!   That day she interviewed Ming, Clark, Liz, Luke, and Chloe.   She has also quoted all of those people in two recent articles, not Henry or Iain.
  • If the writers had known early on that Iain wanted to leave (or that they would write his character off) they wouldn’t have added yet another roadblock to the fs relationship (Will). 
    • Every critic pretty much said that they were only trying to delay the blossoming of this romance but why delay it if they only get ONE season (heck not even half a season with them together)  to delve into it and explore the new dynamic? (see how lincoln and daisy on the other hand hit it off right at the start) 
  • They’ve been teasing fitz’s death all season long, and at this point I think they wanted to build a believable red herring for the finale 
  • In the promo he’s been seen with the necklace. again, a little too on the nose for agents of shield.  
  • Okay getting long so under the thing we go….

Hello, the Tumblr. Your friendly neighbourhood Marciana here, back again with another friendly reminder about reposts and reblogs, and why one of them is good and the other is bad. This post is going to be a bit long, but bear with me.

Now I’ve been seeing quite a lot of reposts happening in some of my tracked tags, and it’s just not okay. But then again, some people might be NEW to the whole concept of reposts vs reblogs, so here’s your overview.

“Reblog” is when you see a post that you like, either on your dashboard or in the tags, and click on the small icon on the lower right corner of the post and click “REBLOG” to put it in your blag. Very simple, three steps at the most.

“Reposts” are when original posts, fanart and/or graphics such as edits/manips and GIFs/GIFsets made by other people are posted by OTHER people who did NOT create them, for various reasons. Reposting happens in a few ways:

Reposts essentially take the credit (and the notes) away from the original creators/artists/editors, even though that may not be the intent of the reposter. It’s like doing someone’s homework for them and then watching them take all the credit when their homework turns out to be perfect but their paper got graded and/or noticed before yours. Of course, it’s understandable that a blogger would like to be found by interesting people, they want the notes and the followers, and for others, reposting other people’s fanart, edits and graphics is a way of appreciating what they’ve done. But there are PLENTY of other ways of doing that without violating copyright policies as set in Tumblr’s rules and regulations.

“But Marciana,” you point out, “What if we’d REALLY like to post them on our own blog so that people going through the tags can find us, like us and hopefully follow us?” Then please do not hesitate to ask permission from the original creators/artists. Some will say yes, others will say no. Whatever the decision, be respectful of it. Saying “I do what I want” and going through with the repost anyway doesn’t make you a cool rebel, it just makes you a jerk that can easily be reported to Tumblr staff through a specific e-mail address. Several posts AND blogs have already been deleted and suspended because of serial violations of the copyright laws of Tumblr, which now thankfully also cover GIFsets. In the event that the original source gives their permission, please do not forget to link back to the original post. Other artists will be fine with you leaving their name/Tumblr URL in the post as a source, but the point is to ask first. If in case you can’t find the original source anymore, make sure to say so in your post. “I can’t find the original source, if this is yours, please let me know so I can properly ask your permission/give you credit.”

Oh, and please take note: WeHeartIt is not a legitimate source, as it archives photos from all over the internet and NEVER links back to their original sources when you post them here on Tumblr.

“Okay fine,” you say, “But what about using people’s jpgs and gifs as reactions to posts? How is that different from illegal reposting?” To be honest, it’s not VERY different, except for the fact that if you use someone’s jpg or gif as a reaction, it’s not really seen as you claiming it for your own. Almost everyone on Tumblr is using everyone else’s stuff for reaction anyway that at this point, this has become the gray area. Still, if the jpg or gif you want to use is watermarked with the creator’s URL, ask permission to use their stuff if you want to be very sure.

While we’re on the subject of permission, let me bring up one more permission issue that needs to be talked about. Some people are very good at ‘shopping pictures together for shipping or ficcing purposes. That’s all well and good, until you cross a certain line. There are pictures out there of fans with their favorite celebrities or actors that they’ve met, and these shots usually make for good posing for shippy pictures. The problem with doing that is that some people will callously cut the fan out of their own picture, which is their representation of a special day or moment that they had, to serve someone else’s purpose. This can be, and has been, very, very disrespectful of the fans, who only uploaded their pics in the first place to share the fun with the fandom. I’ve asked in the future for people to please stop doing this, but of course, thats not going to happen in a flash. If you’re going to insist on doing it, get permission from the original blogger of the picture, and for the love of fandom, please respect whatever answer they give you. This kind of thing puts people off of sharing their awesome pictures and stories with the rest of the fans, some of whom will never be so lucky as to even be in the same city as their fave actors/singers/celebrities, let alone attend a con they’ll be in and pay heaps of money for something very, very special.

For you creators/editors/artists out there who would like to prevent your stuff from getting reposted, my only advise is to watermark or sign your things. That’s not really going to physically stop the actual reposting from happening, but at least you’ll know that it’s yours, and if you wish to report the reposting, you have proof that it was yours at all.

That’s it for now, you guys. I hope this post, even though it’s been long, has been informative and helpful, and here’s to less reposts in the tags, and more respect in the fandom.
