seriously guys

The difference between other fandoms and RWBY:
  • Overwatch: Tracer's not the only one who's gay, just you wait. We'll deliver on it. I mean, we did it with Tracer.
  • LGBT Fans: Alright. We trust you. After all, you delivered on Tracer, we have no reason not to trust you on this.
  • Legend of Korra: Korrasami will get more development in the comics, and there are other characters that aren't heterosexual. Like Kya and Aiwei.
  • LGBT Fans: That is so cool!
  • RoosterTeeth: There are LGBT+ characters in RWBY. You just don't know who they are yet!
  • LGBT+ Fans: Riiiiigggghhhhhttt... How long has it been since that 'claim' again?

I just finished watching Trollhunters on Netflix and I strongly suggest you all check it out, for a number of reasons:

  • Interesting character development for both protagonists and antagonists.
  • Fantastic fight scenes.
  • DreamWorks once again gives us an accurate portrayal of the struggles of single parenting (lookin’ at you HTTYD).
  • So many lovable bromances.
  • A Home Alone-esque booby trap scene that delivers. 
  • Great animation.
  • The mythical universe has interesting lore and a surprisingly small number of plot-holes. 
  • Lots of comedy.
  • Seriously, no one is allowed to say the word “crispy” around me ever again.
  • Ever wonder what it would be like if the hero and villain didn’t hide from one another behind secret identities and had to interact with one another for everyday activities? It’s a fantastic dynamic..
  • Tacos. 

I feel like this needs to be said, because some people just aren’t getting it. Feel free to take this image and post it else where if you like - I’m giving everyone full permission to! 

The information above is just things I could think of off the top of my head. The list of things they’ve done for their fans, and for the people around them, goes on forever. I can’t even make a list of reasons why I am grateful for these two, the list would be way to long. 

But the shit really needs to stop … It really does. You may see it as “Just jokes” as stated above but it’s really not … It’s cyber bullying. 

Okay, so I’ve never been able to draw any Critical Role characters without first seeing official or “fandom deemed official” art, and I really really wanted to try and do that someday, and Tary was right there.

A bit of Nigel Thornberry, some Hugh Laurie, and that whole rich European 17th century-ish man child who decided he’d like to go on a safari and try and kill a lion or something. I love him.

Keys and Christmas Lights – Valentine’s day Sterek Dance!AU on AO3 (inspired by this)

Stiles’ fingers clenched in Derek’s hair, holding him with desperation as he stormed his lips. Derek reacted with a shameless murmur of appreciation, letting Stiles to slowly take control over his body. He felt this long fingers slipping out of his hair, stroking his skin with the same rhythm as Stiles’ biting into his lips. They ran gently through his shoulder, causing an involuntary shiver when finally slipped between Derek’s thighs, drawing him even closer to Stiles’ hot body.

“I knew…” Stiles said between one kiss and the other, “I knew you don’t like candles,” he whispered in a hurry. Stopping for a moment, he added with a warm huff, “So I used Christmas lights instead.”

For the fandom and for this extraordinary girl whose talent dazzles me every single time… yes, I mean you kala-fiorek ^^ and yes, she drew that amazing art!

Fanfiction Writers/Fanartists ARE REAL WRITERS AND ARTISTS.

I’ve seen so many posts and been on the receiving end of so many people claiming that people who do fan art or write fanfiction aren’t real artists or writers.

To which I say, bullshit.

Do you NOT know what the entertainment industry involves?

If you ever watch a tv show, the writers for that episode almost always change one way or another.

Have you ever stayed for the credits of an animated movie?

You will see hundreds of people who have worked on animating these characters. HUNDREDS.

And each and every one of these writers and artists base their work on what is known as a ‘bible.’

These ‘bibles’ contain character information and sketches. The character designs both visually as well as their mannerisms. And countless people get pulled on to work on these tv shows who pick up these outlines and begin creating with them.

THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY IS BUILT ON PEOPLE WHO CAN PICK UP SOMETHING PREVIOUSLY ESTABLISHED, AND CREATE BELIEVABLE STORIES. SO MUCH SO THAT UNLESS SOMEONE TOLD YOU YOU WOULDN’T KNOW THAT EPISODES WERE WRITTEN BY ENTIRELY DIFFERENT PEOPLE.

Or…

Your TV shows and movies 99% of the time, ARE fanfiction and fanart (if it’s animated).

Respect FanFiction writers and Artists. 

It’s not easy taking someone else’s characters and creating stories so in tune that you wouldn’t even notice if you weren’t told.

Oh btw, I 100% think Clarke is in love with Bellamy and knows it. Her line in 4x06 proved that to me. I think it was the first textual evidence of Clarke admitting this to herself and semi-admitting it to Bellamy (I don’t think Bellamy fully realized it though, btw… though, he might have an inkling now). 

Seriously, no one can convince me of anything else, right now. 

In sum, Clarke 100% knows that she’s in love with Bellamy Blake, but she’s not ready to act on those feelings yet (why? I have my guesses, but can’t be 100% certain about why just yet). 

y'all ever think about the fact that oot link spent his entire childhood being ostracized by the only people he knows – and when it seems like things are gonna get a little better he fails to save the most important being in the entire forest (which was also pretty much his father figure) and gets blamed for it?? this child needed therapy long before the whole time travel thing tbh

PLEASE READ—HELP ME PUBLISH MY BOOK

I’m an aspiring novelist. I’m currently in the process of trying to complete and publish my first book, which will be a modern retelling of Edgar Allen Poe’s Annabel Lee, about the trials that two teenage boys face falling in love in an early time period. As an LGBT writer, I want to create more stories with diversity and representation available for teens and young adults.

I need to gain support, for this book. It seems a little silly to ask, but this will never become a thing unless there is a real following and genuine interest for the story. I was told that gaining interest on social media is the best and most efficient way to start my career and make a living from this.

Truly, this will NOT be able to happen without tremendous support from all of my followers, as well as anyone who wants to support diversity in young adult literature and young, aspiring authors.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, if you are at all interested in reading, knowing more about, or supporting me and this story, LIKE AND REBLOG this post. Gaining a following is one of the biggest and most important steps in gaining the momentum needed to self publish or to get a decent publisher, and any support, whether it is liking or reblogging this post OR following my blog, it would be IMMENSELY helpful.

Tumblr has always shown momentous support when it’s been needed, and I would really, really appreciate anyone who is willing to help get this jump started. I will be posting excerpts, updates, and recording my experience as it happens, as well as continuing my regular prompt filling that I do now.

Thank you SO much in advance, and please feel free to send me an ask if you’re interested in learning more!
