rules of fandom

Rumbelle Rules

1.  February 12th shall always and forever be a High Holy Day. 

2. TMI Tuesdays and Floof Fridays shall also be honored.

3. The Thing shall be given to any newbie who asks for it. 

4.  Any fic set in the Enchanted Forest MUST include at least one mention of Rumple’s leather pants.

5. We will forever be amused that the only thing shorter than Belle, are her skirts. (Her shoes, however, are taller.) 

We need more rules…..Rumbellers, go!

Everyone’s familiar with “Rule 34 of the Internet: there is porn of any conceivable subject”.

Is there also a rule that states that fandom abhors a vacuum of sexually available slim white men to ship with each other, and any piece of media that doesn’t include at least two will invent them?

This is honestly my favorite page in this whole book, let alone the whole series, so let me break down the various reasons why:

1. Peeves and Lupin clearly already knew each other. This page is your first hint that Remus Lupin may have been a bit of a trouble maker. Peeves already has a song and nicknames for him, and Lupin isn’t a bit surprised.

2. “Rude and unmanageable as he almost always was, Peeves usually showed some respect toward the teachers.” This reminds me of the way Fred and George relate to each other, or to Ginny. Its no surprise that F and G are the closest of the Weasleys, and what good friends they are with Ginny. They offered to send her a toilet seat, they are constantly pranking one another. They don’t show each other respect in the way they would a teacher per say, but respect between pranksters also includes some pranking and teasing among each other right?

This page is your first hint at the relationship between the Marauders and Peeves, and it delights me. Look at instances later of the way Peeves and the twins relate. Its similar.

3. Its like this scene is almost a test from Peeves to Lupin - is Lupin the same as the pranking teenager Peeves once new, or did he grow up?

4. And his answer is in that wonderful spell of Lupin’s. I cannot believe that this teacher, at his first lesson with these students, forcibly shoved a piece of chewing gum up Peeves’ nose. Lupin is clearly not the straight-laced, “play by the rules” type we in this fandom like to characterize him as.

5. Also, what better way to relate to and get on your students good side than to one-up the school poltergeist? Especially when your class is full of thirteen year olds.

6. REMUS. ALREADY. KNEW. DEAN’S. NAME. At this point, Lupin had not yet had a class with the Gryffindor third years. And, with seven years worth of classes times four houses - thats 28 classes worth of students whose names he had to learn. There is no reason he should already know the names of his new students - and yet he does.

And not like it’s Harry’s name either - Dean Thomas is kind of a nobody at this point, but Remus Lupin made it a point to KNOW HIS STUDENT’S NAME BEFORE HE HAD HIM IN CLASS.

7. This whole scene is a DIRECT CONTRAST to the scene before, in Snape’s class. In Snape’s class, we see him play favorites, we see him insult his students, we see him attempt to poison a child’s pet. Here, already, and we’re not even in class, we see Lupin relate to his students, treat them with respect and dignity (on the previous page he says, “Would you please put all your books back in your bags” - he uses “please” and other words that indicate respect). And we see him bother to learn his students names.

Remus John Lupin should’ve been a professor, alright? He should’ve. He’s so good at it. I love him. I love this page. I love POA.

This is a very important post.

Keep scrolliing.




















































































































I promise, it’s worth it.

we tried hard to stand it. we

were barely human. we were bodies

stacked with pain. we never said sorry,
didn’t wanna. you were always drunk
& sad & too far gone for that. I was
terrible & I didn’t care about being better.
but now you’re standing in my bedroom.
now you’re scared & you say you
wanna get into heaven. you wanna

stand in some form of light that isn’t
filtered through clouds of crude smoke.
good luck, & who knows, maybe god
will forgive us for all of this. the stones
we threw, the ankles we bit, the people
we kissed. showing up at the gates
with our tails between our legs.

starved & mad, two dogs who missed
their last meal, licking our wounds &
itching for a fair fight.

there so much to get mad about.
go ahead pick something. imagine
if it helped. imagine if mattered.
I didn’t cry when you left. I just
circled ‘round the block & waited
for you to come back. because
you always do. because I know
how this goes. we pretend we
aren’t the same & then we realize
we are & we pretend we don’t care.
we need each other & that’s all we do.

it’s crazy the things you do for a friend.

it’s crazy the way you’ll act for love.

It’s okay to ship Phan, it’s okay to write weird fanfiction and draw “interesting” fanart.

BUT! It’s NOT okay to shove Phan and Dan and Phil’s faces, it is not acceptable to bully Dan and Phil into coming out, if they are LGBT+ or together. 

If Phan isn’t real, then respect their amazing and wholesome friendship. 

If Phan is real, then get out of their relationship, it’s their privacy, please respect it.

Sansa: *apologizes to Jon about how bad she treated him in the past and asks for his forgiveness*

Fandom: ……

Sansa: *Makes Jon clothes with the house stark sigil on it*

Fandom: ……..

Fandom: ……

Sansa: *Tells Jon he should have the Lord’s chambers in winterfell (basically saying she doesn’t want to rule and he should)*

Fandom: ……..

Sansa (to jon): You are (a stark) to me.

Fandom: ……..

Sansa: *smiles at Jon while he is giving his speech*

Fandom: …….

Sansa: *Makes a sour face while looking at Littlefinger at the end of the episode*

Fandom: I KNEW IT!! THIS BITCH CAN’T BE TRUSTED!! SHE IS GONNA BETRAY JON!! SHE HATES JON!!! KILL THE WITCH I SAID KILL HER OFF!!!!

Growing up in internet fandom in the 00s, remembering:

1. ff.net banned NC-17 fics

2. The moment you signed a disclaimer for reading fics that you’re 18 years old when you’re actually 18

3. Trying to keep up with the threads on Yahoo mailing lists

4. Exploring fanfic archives through “Web rings” of fic sites

5. Livejournal: drabbles, ficlets, vignetts, comment fics, lj communities, when OkCupid was funny personality quizzes

6. Learning about society (and social psychology) through Fandom_wank

7. Discovering ships via ship_manifestos: also, words like “plotbunny”, “squee”,” guh”, “squick”, “plotsheep”

8. Yuletide fics is Happy Holidays for EVERYONE- fic recs everywhere

9. Wanting fanfic Awards in the form of icons you can put on your fic site and respecting the fics that had those icons

10. The joy of browsing fics via Del.icio.us (TAG SYSTEMS RULE)

PETITION UPDATE!!

Hi guys!!😊Just checking in to remind you of what’s going on with the petition thing. So what’s new? Well, we have A LOT of people who are all for this and want to help out so shoutout to you guys!! But now that that’s out of the way, here’s when we need to get down to business. Firstly, I read ALL of your comment/reblogs on what we should do and I decided to break it down into these 3 strategies.

1. Watch ads! Tons of people believe this is a good way to use and save up whatever diamonds they need to play in the game. You watch one ad, BOOM! You get 1-2 diamonds. It may not seem that much, but you’re still gaining something out of it.

2. Play a certain amount of episodes! *Time Limit* Say you play at least 5 episodes for the Crown and the Flame. Once you’ve passed that checkpoint, you’ll be rewarded with a diamond or two and the cycle would continue from the beginning. OR when you finished playing those five episodes, there could be a time limit on when you’ll receive your next set of diamonds. Kind of like the technique they use with keys except it provides more. 

3. Lower the specified amount! So you know how we have to have like 20 or 30 diamonds in order to complete a certain task/ unlock special scenes? Well, if PB lowered how many diamonds we need AND we collected as many as we couldfrom ads or episode checkmarks, then MAYBE we wouldn’t be so annoyed with considering their diamond prices IF NECESSARY 

So, all in all, these are the 3 main strategies we have so far. I personally think the first and last one would be beneficial that way both sides are gaining something, but that’s up to you guys too. *DON’T BE AFRAID TO ADD IN NEW ONES, THE MORE IDEAS, THE BETTER* Also, signatures!! I need someone to collaborate with me and @cartoonfanforlife on how we’re gonna organize everyone’s names and make a list, that way we all get equal say and recognition. Furthermore, if anyone is SUPER good at presenting business proposals and all that, then PLEASE don’t hesitate in trying it out! You’ll play a very crucial role in how we’re gonna deliver the final product;)

Side note: There is no certain number of people we need to reach our goal, seeing that there are a lot of us and we’re very ambitious😉BUT instead, I’ve decided to take @choicesimaginesandmore’s advice on hosting a vote on how many of you agree with the choices up above. If a lot of you prefer the first option, then we will go with that, however, that doesn’t mean the other two are disregarded cause we can use those strategies as backup points.

Whew! Sorry this is such a long post but that is what’s gonna be happening for the time being. Until then, the voting ballots are open (I’ll let you know when they’ll close) and I hope to see some awesome results!☺️ Signing off!!✌🏼
