ship: it made a difference to me

anonymous asked:

every day i struggle not to hate klance and lance just because of the klance/lance stans.. it's a real fight. i seriously need to remind myself that i don't hate the character and the ship just the dumbass people who are obsessing over them while being a jerk to everyone on tumblr

Yeah, I’ve long since given up that struggle. Klance stans made me hate the ship before I even officially joined the fandom.

I don’t hate Lance, though. The fandom has OC’d Lance into a character that’s completely different than the Lance in the actual show, and canon Lance is so much better than fanon Lance.

I am not a Tokyo ghoul fan but I still feel the need to put this in my blog
this attitude is downright disgusting, nasty and 100% unacceptable, honestly I feel so bad for Ishida!

I don’t know the man that well, but I’ve seen him interact with his fans on twitter before in such a fun and respectful way, I’ve also been here when he took the time to draw a tribute art of one of his fans when she was killed in a tragic accident (Christina Grimme)

and regardless of any of this, no author or content creator ever should have to experience such harassment for a valid decision they made in their own story, bad or good, I won’t understand for the life of me why some fans feel so entitled to someone else’s work like this, especially if it’s over something as ridiculous as shipping! being simply disappointed is an entirely different thing!

what’s ironic about all of this, is that 90% of these fans don’t even buy and support his work legally, this harassment started from international fans before the chapter was even released officially in Japan, and this alone is disrespectful enough, I understand a lot of us don’t have the means to support official releases due to different reasons, but the least we can do is not act like entitled pricks over it

I’m addressing this because for one, it’s horrible! and second, I don’t think the snk fandom is above this at all, I’m just glad Isayama doesn’t have any public social media account and I hope it stays that way

things like this makes me almost hate shipping culture because it’s the main source of all of this, people just don’t know when to stop, close their laptops and go take a walk

anonymous asked:

Not Voyager or DS9 relate but I really hope Discovery is dark and gritty and actually lives up to some potential something we didn't get from Previous Trek shows. If it does I just may give it a chance.

This isn’t DS9 / VOY in specific, but I still want to address this, because I have some passionate feelings about it.

It sounds like you want A Song of Ice and Star Trek, but that would be as incorrect an approach to the series as it would be if HBO made Game of Thrones without the betrayals, blood, pointless cruelty, and injustice. One of the reasons for the tone of that franchise is because George R. R. Martin is trying to knock down the rose-colored view of medieval times in fantasy. Likewise, one of the reasons for the tone of Star Trek is to oppose the relentless pessimism you find in science fiction.

There are a lot of shows and films with a dark, gritty tone about the future. Half the trailers you see in theaters now are for a world taken over by an oppressive regime, or a world in flames because of what we did to it, or a world in flames and under an oppressive regime, in which kindness and morality are as rare as diamonds and fleeting as desert frost. This is not to say that they are bad, just if you want gritty sci-fi, there is no lacking for options. Star Trek sets itself apart from these stories. Instead of assuming that we will continue being the worst of ourselves, Star Trek dares to propose that we can be the best of ourselves–that we can embrace curiosity, compassion, and knowlege, rather than fear and prejudice and greed. It says that the future can be different if we work for it. It speaks to people who are marginalized and shut out and different and says that they have the right to strive and dream. It speaks to people who are not and says “be better.”

The name of the new ship and the new series is Discovery. Does that sound gritty to you? Doesn’t sound like it to me, and I would be severely disappointed if they went along with the general trend and made a grimdark series.

Here are some things about Star Trek if you believe it has failed to live up to “some potential something,” and maybe you will think twice about giving it a chance.

  • When NASA decided they needed to recruit a more diverse corps of astronauts, they turned to the cast of the Original Series. Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman in space, points to Nichelle Nichols’ Uhura as her inspiration. (Jemison later guest-starred in an episode of TNG, and Star Trek has never stopped inspiring the kids who grow up to be astronauts.)
  • Janeway was the first female captain to lead the show, but there was also B'Elanna, the first female chief engineer who was part of the main cast. Both characters were not only intellectually brilliant but often took the lead when it came time to fight dudes who were between them and the Alpha Quadrant.
  • In the height of the Cold War and its paranoia, Star Trek put a Russian character front and center on the bridge, and that’s why you have fans creating beautiful designs for uniforms with hijabs today.
  • Avery Brooks signed onto Deep Space 9 because he wanted to portray a loving, supportive relationship between a black father and son. He even got them to change the ending of the series over it.
  • Patrick Stewart insisted on not flinching away from the brutal, dehumanizing portrayal of torture in “Chain of Command,” and the writers consulted Amnesty International to make it as harsh and realistic as possible.
  • Aron Eisenberg (Nog) got numerous calls from veterans praising his portrayal of PTSD.
  • And then there is this confession. It is far and away the most liked and reblogged confession on the blog.


I would say that is potential realized.

Star Trek doesn’t just inspire, though. Star Trek confronts. From the very beginning it has held up a mirror to society, and through either allegory or visits to “history” – in other words, the present – calls us out. “Let That Be Your Last Battlefield” with the black-and-white cookie people has their leader shocked that anyone could fail to see the ‘obvious’ point that his counterpart is inferior becuase of his coloration (black… on the left side) and pointedly has diverse actors in the foreground and background, something which they had to fight for. The whole of the Bajoran Occupation arc is about the hideous toll of colonialism and facism. Janeway confronts the question of euthanasia with Quinn, Enterprise has an AIDS allegory, Picard deals with demagogues and religious fantaticism and Kirk advocates respect for life even if it is not as we know it. Deep Space 9 warns of a time when we might shut away the homeless in internment camps not from malice but apathy.

Has Star Trek failed to live up to potential? Oh, you bet. There’s no excuse for the fact that it’s taken until 2016 to have an openly gay character. It has sometimes stood tiptoe on the line of something important and then drawn back. It’s tried to be a future without sexism but also wouldn’t let Mariana Sirtis and Gates McFadden use swords in the Robin Hood episode even though they’re the only ones who actually knew stage fencing. The “cultural expert” on Chakotay turned out to be a white guy who got all his information from Hollywood westerns, a real-life version of the “Apache Tracker” from Night Vale. The times when it does not love up, in other words, is when its bright future is hampered by present-day prejudice… not when it declines to be “gritty.”

Now it’s true that alongside this you have Janeway turning into a lizard and “NO MORE BLAH-BLAHS” and Miles O'Brien versus the shaving cream monster. And quite frankly, those are also an essential part of Star Trek, and I’m pretty sure there are episodes of everyone’s favorite dark and gritty franchises which are relentlessly dumb.

But if you think the point of Star Trek is just the visuals, just the space travel, just the fun of watching Shakespearian actors fling themselves over their leather seats as the camera shakes… you have missed the point of it. It has never been about just what’s on the screen.

THEY ARE HERE

Finally the drawing prototypes for the Tale!Sans and Fell!Sans cosplay heads are here!!!! VERY special thank you to @mnstrcndy for working with us on the Underfell Sans! We love you!!
Keep in mind that Underfell Sans is also a Work In Progress and this is not quite the 100% finalized product but just to show you what we generally have planned for him! This is just MC’s wonderful illustration before we go ahead and draw/measure it out ourselves. [Vince will be finishing the finalized drawing sometime later tonight for posting (Timezone: EST)]

Once Fell Sans is finalized we will be picking up supplies and Vince will begin the process of creating and carving Tale!Sans out of pink insulation foamboard and eventually resin casting. Fell!Sans will be built off Tale!Sans in the process. Don’t worry, there WILL be progress pictures!

Swap!Sans design already exists and will be smoothed out a bit in preparation for casting:

As you can see the differences between Swap!Sans and Tale/Fell!Sans are quite different and more “mature” looking.

The list is still open if you are interested in contacting me for one of these three heads at a base price of $250 USD + SHIPPING! You can ALWAYS message me for any questions or details!

I will tonight be making a separate page on my blog for a name-placement queue of who’s heads are being made first. This all depends on how fast you plan to pay.

i hate that people think that we are having some petty ship war. this is not a ship war. my dislike for karamel doesn’t stem from me thinking my ship is better. it’s not a situation where multiple ships are good and it’s just a matter opinion. this isn’t a situation where multiple characters would be good for kara and it’s up to you to decide which character you like best. no this is an entirely different matter. this is hatred towards a ship that has become the centerpiece of the show, one that has stripped supergirl of everything that made it so amazing. a ship that is extremely toxic abusive and disgusting. a ship that is being shown to kids as a good healthy relationship. a ship that also has racist undertones and whose supporters defend and ignore everything that is wrong with it. not to mention the other half of the ship is a slave-owning misogynistic abusive asshole.

so, no. this isn’t some petty ship war and it would do you well to remember that simple fact.

Tumblr translations I've encountered through the past six months...

- “Do you have any proof?”
- “LMAO GOOGLE IT! I’m too tired to educate you 😴😴😴”

Translation: “No, I don’t have any proof, and the fact that you’ve made me realize I have come to this conclusion without any evidence bothers me.”

- “How are you being an activist?”
- “Have you not seen my posts!?!”

Translation: “I either am not able to actually be an activist or haven’t realized that participating in a hashtag isn’t activism.”

- “__________ is a Nazi and a fascist.”

Translation: “This person disagreed with me and I can’t define fascism.”

- “The right to free speech doesn’t prevent you from consequences!”

Translation: “What I’m saying is completely factual but don’t you dare make ME face consequences for what I say.”

- “Go back to Reddit!”

Translation: “I’ve blocked you for making me question my beliefs.”

- “Okay, I might have been wrong here but you are only proving my point…”

Translation: “You might have proven me wrong, but I’m in denial.”

- “That’s (insert prejudice of choice here).”

Translation: “You’ve drawn a character I like in a different shade of color / you disagreed with a minority or a woman / you shipped a character ‘incorrectly’ / I’ve been shown to be uneducated on the topic at hand, but I’m in denial / you listened to someone I disagree with.”

- “Reverse oppression isn’t real.”

Translation: “It’s okay when WE do it.”

- “Listen to minorities!”
- “This minority disagrees with you. Shouldn’t I listen to them?”
- “You have to realize your opinion isn’t the only one.”

Translation: “You’ve made me realize that people of a certain trait do not think the same and I don’t understand how that can be. I also didn’t realize 'listen’ doesn’t mean 'agree’ so I’m trying to block out this dissenting opinion of someone who I believe should agree with me based solely on the fact they are a minority.”

- “Bad post OP. Yikes.”

Translation: “Bad post OP. Yikes.”

Supercorp Appreciation Week

Day 2 (April 25): Favorite Quote

So I had an entire post scheduled to go today because I’m very busy but I still managed to find the time to watch Ace Reporter and immediately had to redo this day’s quote because HOLY SHIT OMG. This episode destroyed me.

Lena: Loss does strange things to my family and I’ve lost a lot of people.

Kara: Well, you’re not gonna lose me.

Lena: I think when I feel things again, I’m gonna be very, very afraid of the person I might be.

Kara: You don’t have to be afraid. I’m right here. I’m not going anywhere.

Lena: Promise?

Kara: I will always be your friend. And I will always protect you. I promise.

 I’m posting this from the grave, FYI.

This exchange was beautiful. One of the things that made me ship supercorp in the first place was just how honest these two are with each other. And this exchange? It’s a whole new level. Lena has stated over and over how she wants to be different from her family and her actions have proven it. But here, she’s openly admitting to Kara that she’s actually terrified of being like her family. But not her brother, like everyone thinks. But of her mother. She’s so afraid that she’s going to end up like Lillian Luthor. The cold and calm facade Lillian has that masks how dangerous she is. She doesn’t want to be like Lillian. But in this moment, she feels like her.

It goes back to what Supergirl told Lena in Medusa. “She [Lillian] is cold and dangerous. And you are too good and too smart to follow in her path.” It gives that scene a whole new perspective when you realize Lena has feared that she’s like Lillian in this respect.

And Kara takes a different approach this time. Because as Supergirl, she can only comfort Lena with words. But as Kara, she can be more…intimate.

Lena talks about how much she’s lost? Kara assures her that Lena won’t lose her.

Lena tells Kara about how she’s afraid of who she will be when she’s no longer numb? Kara says you don’t have to be afraid. Because from the beginning, Kara has known that Lena is good. She’s so good and wants to help and wants to better the world. Yes, she has a dark side and can sometimes operate in a morally gray area but Kara is certain that Lena doesn’t have to fear being a bad person because she’s just not one. And if something ever happens where that might change? Well, Kara will be right there for Lena and help her through it.

And now the part of the dialogue that really gets me. Lena asks Kara to promise that she isn’t going anywhere. That she won’t leave Lena like everyone else has that Lena cares about. And we know that Kara is Lena’s family. We know that no one has done for Lena what Kara has done and based on canon quotes, this includes Jack. So Lena asks Kara to promise that she won’t lose her.

And Kara can’t. She can’t promise Lena that she won’t ever leave her because Kara is Supergirl. And if she promises that and then something happens to her? She’d have broken that promise. And Kara is all about trust. So she can’t promise that she’ll always be there. But she can promise that she will always be Lena’s friend. And that is so, so important. Friendship has to be the core for any relationship. Romance should never be put above friendship because your romantic partner has to be your friend. And these two are so lucky to have both.

What Kara can also promise? Is that she will always protect Lena. Kara has gone into death defying situations to protect Lena and would do so again. Always. And Lena’s reaction when Kara says this? When she was snuggling into Kara’s side with her eyes closed? Her eyes open wide and her mouth drops. Because every time Kara has protected Lena? Has been as Supergirl. And whether this was just a slip on Kara’s part or Kara threw caution to the wind to make this promise because she wanted Lena to know how much she meant to her, I’m not sure. But it happened. And Lena noticed. And I think if Lena had any doubt before, now she knows.

anonymous asked:

what was the moment you realize kaisoo might be real ?

I don’t know if it was exactly one single moment. It was more like several instances over the course of a few years. 

I guess smth stirred in me already back in 2012, cause they really stood out to me. I had never shipped 2 ppl like that before. I thought there was smth different about them, but it wasn’t until 2014 that I was really thinking that, Yes… those two are dating. There can’t be any other explanation to the looks that always lingers a few seconds too long, their intimacy, the jealousy, their habit of going into their own bubble when together and literally zoning everyone else out, the way they stick up for the other, the way they’ve always talked about each other etc etc.. 

I kinda mentioned the moments that made me think kaisoo is real here tho –> (x

But I can mention a few of them again ;)

Jagi moment ofc! 

The kolon sport bts vid, where they’re so obviously flirting!!! I talked more about that here –> (x)

A video posted by @alvabear94 on Jan 21, 2017 at 9:31pm PST

This is a new addition, and I don’t care if he’s looking at the screen or whatever that’s not the point here, the point is that he looked away and pouted when it was literally happening in front of him >_>

That time Soo massaged Nini’s finger at an award show, and Nini reacted very “bro like”.. I could put that entire night here tbh, cuz they were all over each other, see more here (x)

And lastly, this pre debut selca! Bros don’t take pics like that, i’m just saying!

:——-) 

I could also put every moment of kaisoo ever looking at each other here too T___T But as I mentioned, see my previous “kaisoo is real” spam for more moments anonnie~

My favorite crazies.

Ok, first things first: Rose. My child. My ‘may need a restraining order’ child. I love her,,,,

Second: THANK YOU AND THIS BLOG FOR EXISTING!! I LOVE THIS BLOG SO FRIKN MUCH, I’M SO GLAD IT WAS CREATED!! My sister first introduced me to you last year, (I had a different account that is sadly gone now) and I’m very grateful she did!!! This blog made me laugh alot, especially the posts with john????

Third: Eridan & VAAASka. I know in this timeline (?) they arn’t a thing, and Eridan and sollux are moirails. But I saw that one post with Eridan and VAAASKkA and I viewed them as each other’s support, (also because I really ship erisol and I want to slap a matespritship on them instead)))) but that’s not the point. They seem like “sad"people that need to help eachother.
I’m also looking at a duck rn, not sure if that was relevant, but I just felt like I needed to say that????

((I’m so very happy you love these babies almost as much as I do >:^> they mean so much to me. tell your sis that she’s a cool cucumber for introducing you to the wonderful world of oppoopsitestuck! and dont let go of that EriVris moirail headcanon just yet ;> ))

Sharing Stage/2.5D Content

So there are some things I want to go over about sharing, reposting, and general distribution of content.  And while I’m going to talk specifically about Engeki Haikyuu, some of the more general stuff can be applied to most Japanese stage plays, musicals, and general theater.  

I wanted to make this post because I’m seeing a lot of frustration in fandom from both content providers and fans and followers butting heads on this issue.  First off, we have to acknowledge that there is an undeniable precedent that’s existed in fandom that makes fans feel entitled to all the content all the time, for free.  And there is knowledge of the industry that content providers have that I think we’re not communicating frequently enough to help fans understand our positions on these issues.

It’s lengthy, but please take some time to look under the Read More and read about this issue.

Langst Sentence Prompt

I don’t know what else to call this but basically what I meant is that I will list a few sentences here (I had Lance saying this in my mind but you can use it to other characters also). You can use this to make a full out fic or an art and if you will do please link it to me! I will be very happy to see it! Thanks!

> “Heroes? There are no heroes in war. Only murderers, darling.”

> “I was not born as a killer. YOU made me as a killer.”

> “You made me attack a ship with children on it?! I don’t care if they are galra soldiers to be! They are just kids!”

> “I want to go home but I’m afraid also because I can’t wash this stains on my hands.”

> “Where is home? I don’t know but I’m very sure it’s not here. Not in the castle. Not with you.”

> “Why am I crying? I just realized that time here in space is different on Earth. Who knows, maybe a hundred years passed already! I might not even have a place to return to!”

> “…no one admits to their own crime in the first place, right?”

> “Sorry man, I was ordered to kill everyone! It’s unfortunate your whole family is here!”

> “Allura, as a proper Princess you should admit that you have created a monster.”

> “Blue, can you freeze my heart so that I will not feel any more pain? I know you can do it.”

So! If this inspired you I hope that you will give me a link! Until then, thanks for reading!

Rivamika Meta Masterlist [Part I]

Here’s a masterlist of all the Rivamika-relevant meta ever posted or reblogged in this blog, ordered from oldest to newest.

  • Me, When I First Started Studying Dracula: Oh my gosh! Everyone knows more about this book than I do, and they are probably right about it being about Victorian apprehensions about sexuality and reverse colonialism and stuff. My dumb vampire feelings are probably misguided.
  • Me, Midway Into Studying Dracula: Wait! Everybody is actually wrong and ignoring a lot of useful primary documents! How dare people mischaracterize Lucy as subtextually promiscuous!? Haven't they made an extensive study of Stoker's Edwardian romances and listed sources on mesmerism!? The fools!
  • Me, Now: (staring languidly into space, possibly drinking) How do I work around the time difference so that I can ship Quincey Harker with Renesmee Cullen...? (pushes paper draft due tomorrow off of table) If I stat vampire Mina using 3rd Ed... what sort of Koldunism do I give her...? (drinks more, pulls up Thomas the Tank Engine theme on Youtube, lies on floor using unread textbook as a pillow) What if Bram Stoker was... a train?

Okay  honestly I know Legends has been awesome in providing crack episodes to us but really they’re missing out on some great stuff: 

  • It’s great and all that they’re traveling to different places but when are they gonna travel to ancient Greece? Or Rome???? GIVE IT TO ME. 
  • Forget space pirates give me pirates pirates. 
    • You KNOW there’d be a badass lady pirate and Sara def is into her.
    • Mick is probably made captain of a pirate ship somehow. 
  • Seriously. I just - cannot believe that they put the historical periods into a montage (besides Camelot). Just give me ALL the historical periods and “Sometimes I Remember I’m A Historian” Nate going “mmm….not historically accurate.” 
  • What’s that? Them going into space and fighting/being friends with aliens? 
    • Ik we kind of went into it in Invasion but like, let’s make it more explicit this time. 
    • LET JAX KISS A CUTE ALIEN 2K17. 
  • @hedgiwithapen has de-aged headcanons like??? Imagine teen Martin comforting 3 year old Jax and then they merge by accident and now you have a 3 year old Firestorm lighting shit on fire while teenage Mick finds more stuff for them to blow up. 
    • Good god I’d watch a WHOLE episode of toddlers running the Waverider and ykw?? It probably wouldn’t be that different. 
  • POWERSWAP POWERSWAP POWERSWAP
    • Fine okay so this REALLY only works with Firestorm, Nate, and Amaya but it’d be fun, or if the team somehow found themselves with each other’s weapons I’d start laughing. 
      • Amaya and Sara can now merge which is great. 
      • Ray is left alone on the ship and is like “OH SWEET I GET TO BE CAPTAIN AGAIN”. 
      • Jax has Mick’s heat gun and Mick has the steel powers and both are thriving. 
      • Nate gets Amaya’s powers but for some reason can’t figure it out and ends up running away from danger half the time. 
      • Stein grabs the atom suit and for all his knowledge can’t figure out how to use it, and ends up destroying it. 
        • Mick laughs because he remembers Ray told him an idiot could use it.
  • Where. Is. My. Bodyswap. Episode. 
    • As per @calmandcalculating Mick and Sara swap bodies and have the same stance. 
    • Jax and Rip probably swap and they’re like “………….great”. 
      • “If you damage my body I’m killing you Rip.” “No worries, Mr. Jackson.” 
    • Nate and Ray swap but they’re pretty much the same person so does it even make a difference lmfao. 
    • Somehow Stein/Amaya/Gideon all swap and now Gideon is in Amaya’s body, Amaya is in Stein’s body, and Stein is an AI and he’s startled but now keeps annoying people by popping up with his unwanted opinions all the time
  • HORROR AU!!!! GHOSTHUNTING ON THE WAVERIDER!!!
    • It all starts when Ray Palmer and Nate Heywood, Horror White Boys ™ bring a Ouija board on the ship. 
      • Ray thinks it’s ridiculous and Nate just laughs because he doesn’t believe in it so both are down to play it. 
      • Sara doesn’t know if she believes or not but honestly she thinks she can kick a demon’s ass so it’s okay. 
      • Stein and Mick probably end up possessed. 
      • Actually tbh maybe this wouldn’t happen because Jax is smart and would break the board. 
        • He probably does this every time Ray & Nate bring something stupid on board. “Oh a tape that kills you if you watch it? Yeah okay HOW ABOUT NO”.
        • Oh you went to an antique shop and found this creepy puppet??? “Nope, nope, nope, not today. Hell no, you two are out of your minds, get that shit away from me, nOOOOPEEEEEE-”
