what are your sexuality headcanons for the paladins?
Ehhhhhh, hmmmm, let’s see… I mean, I support all kinds of ships in the fandom that probably break my headcanons, so this in no way implies that I disagree with other ships. These are just my, personal, headcanons for sexuality and… other things. Because I went overboard, as usual -
Lance - Bisexual (obv). Biromantic. I think he probably has some issues expressing his attraction to men, however. Not because he’s unaware of it, but because he has a “Han Solo” type image he wants to portray to those he wants to impress and so it’s easier to stick to only flirting with ladies. That is, until he’s confident and comfortable enough to express how he really feels to his new “family.” Lance is, in my opinion, a very, very secretive person that uses his typical attitude as a sort of smoke and mirrors idea to convince those he meets otherwise. Because insecurity. Also, I think Lance kind of shifts between being quite masculine and quite feminine when he feels comfortable in doing so. I don’t think he suffers from gender dysphoria, but I don’t think he allows his gender to dictate how he presents himself (again, once he feels comfortable enough with the people around him. Dat insecurity and desire to impress be gettin’ in the way). For example, back home with his family and in his neighborhood and where he’s most at ease, he’s more than happy to wear makeup. Or, say, during Cuban festivals like the Havana Carnival, you know damn well he’s wearing one of those more revealing getups with the fancy headdresses and all the beaded decorations and flashy sleeves and feathers, etc, etc. YOU CANNOT TAKE THIS HEADCANON AWAY FROM ME! GIVE ME HAVANA CARNIVAL LANCE! NOW!
Keith - Gay. Super gay. As gay as they come. SO gay. Homoromantic. I also headcanon Keith as being somewhat hyper-romantic, meaning that he really, really desires a romantic relationship (far more so than anything sexual). Like, he’s the type that forms feelings hard and fast and without mercy, and so he tries really, really hard not to give in, but it never works. He’s more apt to keep such things bottled up tight than ever express them, however–too afraid of rejection.
Pidge - Asexual.Aromantic. Pidge is far more interested in platonic bonds and values her family/friends more than anything. Which is why it’s so important that she find her family. I’d imagine she has a hard time making friends as well, so what strong bonds she does have are very, very important to her support system. She has anti-social tendencies, but is very dependent on the people she does love to be there and love her in return. I also imagine she suffers from gender dysphoria, and that–though it’s something that doesn’t really affect her position as part of Voltron any–it wears on her a bit. It’s clear from the space mall episode, when she couldn’t decide which bathroom to go in, that how she’s presenting herself–at least in public–is stressing her a bit. I think she’s comfortable enough with Team Voltron not to worry about it, but something inside her is uncertain. Whether this leads to her making a transition or identifying as gender fluid isn’t something I’ve decided yet, however.
Hunk - Panromantic and asexual. I dunno why I love the idea of asexual Hunk so much–maybe because it’s interesting to headcanon both him and Pidge that way due to how different they are. I like the idea of romantically distant Pidge, who still needs all her platonic relationships, while Hunk loves romance and wants it and all the frills that come along with it. But he’s also patient and doesn’t really go looking for it? Like, he knows it’ll come someday and he’s just waiting for that perfect person(s). Until then, he’s more than happy to give cuddles and love to his friends. I also think Hunk would do very well with polyamorous relationships and would be more than willing to be in one/want one. And though he has no active interest in sex himself, he’d be more than happy to participate if it made his partner happy. He’s not sex-repulsed (as Pidge probably is), he just doesn’t care one way or another.
Shiro - Demisexual and demiromantic. Shiro partially takes a while to warm up to people because of the trauma he’s been through, but also because he’s always been very focused elsewhere and so he’s never thinking about romance or sex at the forefront. When it does hit him, though, it’s deep and burning and certain. He’s the kind of person that loves someone his whole life, even if they don’t love him in return, and so even though he may not end up with that person, a flame for them will always exist inside him, even if it is subdued. That’s just how deeply he feels things–it leaves that much of an impact on him. But, like I said, it does take a special kind of person and a lot of time to get him to that point.
Allura - Gray-sexual and demiromantic. Allura has a lot more important things to worry about than sex and relationships. I also kind of headcanon that sex wasn’t a huge part of Altean culture anyway. Allura feels sexual attraction sometimes, but it’s not hard for her to control, nor is it distracting. That doesn’t mean she can’t be a sexual person, just that it’s not something that’s overpowering unless she lets it overpower her at her own volition. I would also imagine that she takes a while to romantically warm up to people, even if she’s platonically very friendly. If she’s going to enter into a romantic relationship, it needs to be with someone she’s partners with–both romantically and otherwise. Someone she can work with, but who can also manage themselves and offer things productive to the relationship. Allura would need–I think above anything–an efficient relationship. Which is why this determination would have to be solidified before romance was introduced or even considered.
Coran - I… don’t know, lol. I usually headcanon Coran as being very dedicated to the royal family and so his personal life wasn’t something he considered important. Which I guess would make him a kind of asexual and aromantic. But I also imagine that Alteans are very good at compartmentalizing, so even if he was attracted to someone/in love, he wouldn’t allow it to get in the way of his duties. Therefore, I consider Coran’s personal life to, well, be none of my business, hahahaha!
“Isn’t in kind of unrealistic, statistically, that all the Voltron members be part of the LGBTQ+ community?”
No. If it weren’t for the gender and sexual stereotypes that permeate human society, I theorize that diversity among such things would be far more wide-spread. Not only that, but each lion represents a different type of person and I think it’s perfectly reasonable, therefore, that each paladin show variances all over the spectrum, not just in their personalities. They are five pieces that come together to make a whole, so like they represent different races and personality types, other things about them should show differences as well. Which means that, yes, I do get slightly annoyed at the lack of female representation on the team. What little representation women have isn’t enough, and Hunk or Shiro would have made really good female characters without it altering the story one bit.
Warnings: Swearing, tension, attempted abduction, Bucky on a motorcycle. Eventual Smut.
A/N: I wrote this for my friend/soulmate/person, Nikki. I wasn’t going to post it, but she loved it so much and wanted me to share it! Part Two will be posted in a few days, and part three a few days after that! Tag lists are open!
You knew you should have stayed home today.
You looked up at the man who was pressed against you but it was too dark in the utility closet he had pulled you into.
He was looking out of the crack in the door at the thousands of people milling around the airport. The sliver of light bisected his face showing a black baseball cap, scruff along a hard-set jaw and black shirt.
Your back was against the wall and most of his hard body was pressed along yours. When you moved your head to try and see around him, your cheek brushed against his shoulder. You could feel the warmth radiating off him where his chest was mashed against yours.
You kept waiting on the panic to set in. A strange man had come out of nowhere and grabbed your arm. He told you to, “Play along,” as he hauled you along with him. Next thing you knew, he had opened a door and pushed you through it. Once you were inside, he had bent low and told you that he, “Wasn’t going to hurt to you, and will explain in a minute.” You had only caught a glimpse of him, but you were pretty sure you saw the light glint off a metal arm.
Hey, Hello, Hi. It’s me Addy. I think there are artists out there who are underrated and that everyone should know about. My little larries unite project turned out to be more about writers and fics than anything else so I wanted to provide a space where I could talk with you about the artists that I love and my top five fan arts/edits/manips from them. I will post the links to every fan art within each post. I’ll do it as regularly as I can. As always, don’t hesitate to link me to an underrated artist!
Since it’s the first time I do this, I want to start with a bang: Gina @twopoppies On top of being a wonderful big hearted person and a true friend, she’s also a very talented artist with a very cheeky humour. Without further ado, here’s my top 5 from her.
It kind of speak for itself, but what the drawing symbolises makes my Louie/Larrie heart melt at what should be. I can’t help but want to tag this #soon. Gina’s love for Louis is undeniable and it shows in every art but here in particular.
This is a fan art Gina drew for Where Your Heart Is, a fic that I have co-written. Not only did she suggest the whole scene, she also made it perfect with this piece. She managed to capture a very intimate moment and made the emotions transpire too. Little fun fact, Harry was in boxers in the original drawing and when it didn’t fit the description she added jeans, because Harry and Louis can’t touch in the fic. This is how detail oriented she is. The woman makes jeans appear (but more often she makes them dissapear, let’s be real xD )
I think Gina managed to capture how cheeky real Harry can be. This is the most “him” fan art I ever stumbled upon ever. This is just one of many sides of him, but we’re so used to see his aethetic side nowadays, that I’m really happy she captured this more carefree side.
Despite the romantic message the thing I like the most in this one is the little detail that you wouldn’t notice at first glance: Louis’ power stance and the way Harry’s feet are positionned (slightly inward). Of course, their tattoos aligning is an added bonus.
Art is always open to interpretation. Sometimes Gina adds backgrounds, I’m glad she didn’t here, because I can imagine for myself what is happening. Personally depending on my mood,I like to imagine that they’re starring at fireworks, or the Mona Lisa, or watching Louis’ siblings playing in the backyard. Mostyl I like to imagine them starring at their bright future together.
To see all of Gina fan arts click here. Please, go and tell her how amazing she is.

i remember a few years ago the sunny tag on tumblr was empty and in only a few years it got infested with these people who are looking to tv shows and their characters for wish fulfillment in order to distract themselves from problems in their own lives. like, the show was always a comedy, there was no subplot or queerbaiting whatsoever. these 'fans' should be angry at themselves for getting caught up in something which would never materialize on tv anyways
I remember that too, and it’s why I got out of the tags early in the season. I have certain people get information and reblog things for me/my dash now. I’m so beyond done.
I think the problem is, as mentioned before, these people don’t watch the show but Watch The Show. They insert what they want to see with their hashtag discourse. They have it in their minds that Charlie is trans and/or ace, so they look for things that prove it. They have it in their minds Dee is a lesbian, so they look for things that prove that. They think that Dennis is bi and in love with Mac, so they look for things that prove that. They twist any look between real life friends or actors or trust each other in that moment or some type of look of admiration or waiting to see where the bit of improv goes as A Look It’s Proof They’re Boyfriends <3 <3 <3 Confirmation bias is a real and potentially dangerous thing (see: the current America political climate). The same can be said for any shows. I’ve been having discussions with a few people in the last week involving Supernatural, Harry Potter, Sherlock, Glee, and a few other shows I can’t remember….none of which I was ever a fan of (sorry, internet & the world at large) but the types of fans and Fandom involved. Even things I have been involved in that involved real people but people treated like characters (the band Keane, the improv TV show Whose Line is it Anyway). I get that media is escapism and theorizing and wanting certain things to happen is part of being a fan and part of the experience, but it really easily can go too far.
In the months leading up to the premiere there were theories and people spreading crap and acting like they had all the answers. And so that became the accepted inevitable and real facts.
This has never been a show that I ever expected anything like this to ever happen to. It’s a low rated cable comedy. It’s seen fans come and go over the years, some people don’t evne know it’s still on the air. Sure, it’s popular worldwide and has that cult following. But in the overall television media space, it’s kind of a drop in the bucket. And despite it being a very political show with social commentary
at its core, it’s not a Political Show. It’s not a romcom, a soap opera, a drama, or whatever else either. It’s not gonna hold your hand and tell you everything is okay and give you morals and life lessons. Sometimes in the end, things are just very “complex issues” and have no ending. Sometimes it’s just “poop is funny.” Any other line of thinking is weird, and is the complete opposite of what the show has established itself to be. Sure, things have changed over the years and characters have grown a little bit and this season had several reaching plot points instead of all being stand alone episodes. But it won’t change to the point where everyone is happy and gets a nice red ribbon tied up on their character’s lives. Should Dennis actually leave, no one is happy. Dennis might be happier and better off, but its a hard decision to leave everyone and thing you’ve known since you were small, even if he knows it will help fill his life up and complete him. And The Gang will miss him too. That’s never been the show. Any tender moment is glossed over with some type of joke or insult because these people typically don’t like to sit with their feelings. They’re content as they are.
I feel the need to talk about this. Sorry for the long post but I feel this is very important and needs to be said. I would appreciate it if everyone took the time to read through it, I’ve bolded the important parts for quick reading otherwise.
So I’m going through the WOY tags and I’m seeing hate about a certain ship (I won’t say what or point fingers) and I would just like to express how very disappointed I am in some fans.
I know there have been shipping wars in the past and it can happen in any fandom but the Wander Over Yonder fandom has always been so supportive of one another and taken the show’s kind nature to heart. Most of the fans still do and I’m very proud of this fandom for that.
If you support a ship then good for you, have fun with that ship! Whether it’s with canon or original characters, doesn’t matter. If it makes you happy then embrace the ship and be proud of it!
If you don’t support a ship, just ignore it and move on. DO NOT call others out on it or become a bully. You can download add-ons to blacklist the ship names so you don’t have to see it. Or you can block blogs that post those ships if it bothers you too much. You wouldn’t like it if someone insulted your favorite ship so don’t insult theirs.
Words hurt and people can be greatly affected by it.
So think about what you are saying and how it may affect that person. You don’t know what that person is going through, some people are more sensitive than others and we have all seen first hand what bullying can lead to. Do not take that chance.
These differing opinions make the fandom more diverse and that is a fantastic thing.
Despite these differences people can still ‘click’, people who disagree on ships can still be friends. Instead we should all be uniting over this great show and showing our love for it, supporting one another, inspiring each other and helping everyone to improve. That goes for the fan artists, the writers, the SaveWOY supporters, the “shit-posters”, the re-bloggers, anyone who is involved in this fandom.
I too have my OTPs and NOTPs but all ships are welcome on this blog and I reblog every kind of ship, not only for myself but so my followers can see great art and the artists can get more exposure. (All shipping posts are tagged by their names so they can be black-listed if necessary). I love seeing how different everyone is yet how we are all still one big happy family, united by something we are all so passionate about.
If you are being bullied:
If you are experiencing any kind of bullying or harassment over a ship you like, go straight ahead and block the person doing so. Don’t give yourself time to mull over them and what they have said to you. Just go and block them. You’ll feel so much better for it.
If anyone is bullying you over your choice of ships (or for ANY reason) or harassing you please come to me. My ask box is open, my messenger is open. If you feel the need to vent or have a heart-to-heart, you are more than welcome to. I do not judge anyone based on their ships, you are all my friends.
I will not stand for bullying in this fandom, and while I may not be able to directly stop the bullies, I will do what I can to ensure that this fandom remains welcoming and safe for fans of all ages. EVERYONE should feel welcome and safe here and that they can all proudly contribute to this fandom.
The point I’m making is that nobody should feel bad about what they ship. Nobody should feel lesser than other fans and have to hide their ships or feel afraid to share them, and nobody should feel they are greater than others and bully other fans over their ships. We are all equals.
Thank you for taking the time to read this. Stay safe and happy, friends.
Today will be about small thing I recently noticed in your environment.
You guys are crazy.
In good but also in bad meaning. You are crazy about the story - it’s good thing. You love characters, you are intrested in their stories. You are scary about them. It’s all good.
But some of you are starting to act crazy in bad way. Spamming with certain hashtag, begging multiple times about not killing character. Some of you even started to make threats. Even if it’s in funny way… it’s not funny.
Usually fans aren’t able to talk with the author of their favourite manga. Because of language barrier but also because authors want to keep distance from their fans. Because of their spam. Bad spam and good spam. (Sorry but it’s true. When all fans will write to her now it’s like spam because there is so many of you guys).
At some point Ratana was in few yuri groups on Facebook. Like we all. She likes it. It was also nice place to get review about work. Reading people comments, contribute in discussions… But she left. All the groups. Because, let’s be honest. You guys started to be very pushy.
She’s not even commenting on her own page as much as she was doing it before because her own fans - who usually should support their favourite mangaka - started to act crazy.
People - like my friend said - calm you tits. It’s JUST ep48. Pulse has DRAMA in tags. IT WILL HAVE MORE EPISODES IN THE FUTURE. IT WON’T BE HAPPY FOR A WHILE. So you need to be brave.
You have to trust the author.
Also you should show respect to her too. So THINK before you write some comments.
You may not like something in the story, that’s ok. You CAN WRITE you don’t like something in the story. It’s all good. But DO IT in respectful way.
Ratana is very nice person. The nicest I ever know. And I also know some of her own fans’ behaviour make her uncomfortable.
Every time I optimistically scroll down to the YouTube comments on a Critical Role video, I regret it. Wow. Just a sea of “[change in the set this week] is the worst” or “every player is awful, except for the part where [invariably a male player] can do no wrong” or “they’re planning too much/too little/just the right amount but also somehow wrong”. Yikes. This is also a lot of why I stopped checking the tag here or going on the subreddit, man.
I guess it makes sense that the format of the show lends itself to backseat-drivers, especially given the cast’s accessibility via social media, but dang, dude. It’s gotta be like playing a game of Mass Effect or something and having someone sensuously whispering in your ear the whole time, “you know, that dialogue was sort of hackneyed” or “are you sure you should be shooting right now? did you try talking first?” or “look, I know you’re going paragon, but the renegade interrupts are so much better” or “hey, why did you take that renegade interrupt? don’t you feel like a horrible person?”
I know there’s a weird line between game and show here, and I know the term “responsibility to the audience” gets bandied around a bunch, but I figure if an entertainer fails to entertain you, you move on. I figure the only real, incredibly important responsibility any entertainer has to the audience is not to hurt them.
If creators fall down on that front (and of course hurt is not diminished by an absence of intention), by all means, that’s an important topic for discussion. But if the argument is that they have a responsibility to be playing Optimum D&D or to be creating the Most Streamlined TV Drama when any two audience members’ expectations are so wildly disparate, and when it is an improvised internet livestream that is not the cast’s day-job, and when it is a game where a major draw for the players is the ability to make mistakes without major real-life consequences, there’s no way you’re gonna get either perfect gameplay or perfect storytelling. But you can come pretty damn close, which I guess is why everyone’s so invested that they freak out when it teeters too far in one direction or the other, hey?
Anyway. Bottom line is that I probably worry too much about how much fun other people aren’t having with their hobbies. And hey, it is totally okay to get burned out on a show you love. But, you know, maybe less okay to do the equivalent of hanging around outside a movie theater, grabbing people by the lapels, and yelling, “Am I the only one who didn’t enjoy the movie that much?”
Imagine...Fred Seeing You With Someone Else And Finally Making A Move
Characters: Y/n, Fred
Pairing: Fred x Y/n (FEMALE READER)
Warnings: Smut smut and smut, unprotected sex, nothing too kinky, kinda public sex I guess…

A/N: Ok, so…requested fic by anon- can you write a fred smut where the reader goes to the ball with someone else because fred asked her too late and he gets so jealous that eventually he picks the female reader up and they have really kinky rough jealous sex? Ok, so I think probably shorter than you expected but I think it works. Also, sorry this took sooo long!! Hope u like it!!
"I Used to be Categorized as Hyper-Breasted," Furry OCs' Body Image Struggles in a Competitive World
Reeta Coywolf sits down at a flimsy coffee table which sags under her cartoonishly large spherical breasts. She scrolls through popular image board e621, tutting her frustration.
“Look at this,” she says, pointing to a picture of herself accidentally knocking over a glass, “when this was uploaded to Furaffinity six years ago, it was tagged "hyper_boobs” and nobody had a problem with it. But now it’s tagged “big breasts”. It’s just gotten impossible. If I were real, my bra size would be 21 QQQ. I don’t know what more these people could possibly want.“
Reeta isn’t the only furry OC struggling to understand body image standards that seem to be changing faster than ever. Stan, a seven foot muscular mouse with a 20 inch penis claims that pictures of him have been deleted from hyper threads by fchan moderators.
"It’s not my fault OC’s started showing up with cocks bigger than the rest of their bodies,” Stan says with a note of exhaustion. “At the end of the day, I have to hold onto the fact that I know who I am, and I know what my tag should be.”
With tags like “giga breasts” seeing lukewarm adoption rates, the trend is likely to continue, leaving many hyper-furs struggling for recognition.
Said furries, “BIGGER! BIGGER YOU SON OF A BITCH! THAT ASS BETTER BLOCK OUT THE FUCKING SUN OR I CAN’T CUM. MAKE THE TITS BIGGER TOO. I DIDN’T COME HERE FOR FOR YOUR DRY CLINICAL REALISM, AND I DON’T REMEMBER REQUESTING AN ANATOMY LECTURE. BIGGER!”
i think some of what you say is interesting, but i also think you're a little overbearing about seeing the good and bad in characters. just let people think of villains as villains and good guys as good guys. not everything in su is that deep, you probably think about this stuff more than the creators do.
i’dlike to be thought of as someone who thinks about it too much, so that’s ok. especially in a show where the creators + writers have said there are no villains, which is why i think it’s kinda up to the individual to judge characters, but doing so with the knowledge that seeming antagonistic isn’t damning in this show.
crew members have often taken the diplomatic road in regards to subjects that are often turned into “good vs evil”, like malachite (”they brought out the worst in each other”), yellow diamond (responding “what did i just say?” when asked if even she didn’t count as an antagonist), and being interested in how every character feels (”peridot and lapis both believed they deserved better than what happened to them, but not jasper. at her lowest, there’s no way she’d accept help, because she thinks she doesn’t deserve it”, “steven’s learned that (rose) could make mistakes - huge mistakes”, “blue and yellow are equals and opposites, and they’re both still reeling from this loss”, and so forth).
i mean… sure, you could make it about me? if you wanna go deep, you could say i see complexities in people because certain life experiences forced me to confront a lot of mixed signals… i’ve seen people who are usually nice and wants to be perceived as good, but also takes their anger out on me, and try to decipher how to feel about them. all of that shapes you… but i’d like to think i get points for trying to understand what the crew means, paying attention to their statements, and judging the show with that in mind.
idk. maybe i’m totally wrong, and everything should be taken at emotional face-value - i’ve definitely seen the argument that SU runs on “pure emotion” thrown around - but i don’t think so. the show challenges initial emotional reactions, often by reminding you of logic behind actions. things have changed too much. i see a lot more people who have a problem with rose than peridot or jasper now. i think that’s very telling, in how while someone can seem antagonistic or heroic, those perceptions are fluid. i really believe this is a show that wants to tell a fuller story.
Happy Bellarke Fam Selfie Night. Hiatus is upon us. :(
I’m still reeling from the finale, honestly. Here have a pretty morning along with my cowboy hat. Sorry for all the cowboy hat selfies. I live in Florida and I do not go outside without a hat if I can help it but outside has the best light for photos. The sun and I do not get along. I do tan, believe it or not, but I have to go through some pain first to get there and I would prefer not.
I’m still writing for the alpha male celebration and today we have a prompt of “jealousy” that I used for chapter 6 of my 90′s AU Bellarke fic. I figured I’d post it for a show night with no show. Everyone else is doing canon.
here it is sasha and these follow spree are getting annoying i kno i kno BUT it seems like the 75% of the people i follow are on hiatus so i have to step my game up. to keep it short, sorry if there is no a fancy header since im too lazy and too busy with my very upcoming exam crap i should study instead of writing this, those are the things i would like to see:

That’s right, folks! Like an actually good movie sequel you’re excited about, the Ladies of Saint Seiya Fest is back once again! And this year, it will take place through the month of July!
No offense June, our feedback says it’s tough for people to participate in your namesake month. We all still love you though! <3
For those new to the fandom, let’s talk a little about the fest itself!
What is Ladies of Saint Seiya Fest?
While the men of Saint Seiya are some of the most well-known in anime, there is a varied and pivotal cast of female characters in the show that don’t often get attention or love that they deserve.
In 2015, we decided to change that. During Ladies of Saint Seiya Week, we dedicated an entire week to the female cast of the show: sharing our appreciation through fanworks and discussions around our favorite ladies, and even our lady OCs.
The event was met with huge success, and so starting in 2016, we extended the event to a full month!Feel free to post things related to the Ladies like:
All of your love for the Ladies of Saint Seiya!
We also welcome any LGBT+ content and headcanons that you have!
The fest will feature a ton of things to do! We’ll have content such as:
Tag games for you to play with others in the fandom
Contests for artists to take part in

HELP! I’M HAVING ARTIST’S/WRITER’S BLOCK! What should I work on during the fest???
No worries, we’ve been there too. And we’ve got you covered! We’ll crush that block into atoms easily!
We have an agenda for the month that you can use for ideas/topics of discussion, and our content will align to these weekly themes!
Canon Week (7/1-7/7) - This week we will celebrate all of the Canon ladies from the series!
We’ll be (re)releasing profiles for them for those old and new to the show, so feel free to reblog them to spread the word about your favorites! This is also the time to show off and talk about your fanart, fanfics, gifs, your fave moments where the ladies shine, anything for the ladies of this show! This is the time to talk about their awesomeness!
Headcanon Week (7/8-7/14) - This week is dedicated to all the headcanons you have for the ladies! AUs, ships, dreams and aspirations, what their favorite snack is, anything you might have imagined for them!
LGBT+ headcanons are also welcome!
OC Week (7/15-7/21) - We all know there’s more than enough opportunity for some more women in the show, and maybe you’ve thought of a few kickass characters yourself that can teach the boys a thing or two- now’s the time to flaunt them! Profiles, fanart, fanfics, headcanons, whatever you have for your creations are what we want to hear about!
LGBT+ OCs are also welcome!
AU Week (7/22-6/28)- So here we have these fabulous ladies, and maybe canon isn’t enough. Maybe even headcanons and OCs aren’t enough for their awesomeness. What’s left then? Why, nothing other than AUs! This week feel free to talk about any AU ideas you’ve had in the past or just popped into your head the other day-even crossovers are welcome!
Everything else! (7/29-7/31) - During the last dangling days of the month, feel free to talk about anything else you’ve got! Memes, jokes or that one piece of art or fic you managed to finish just in time are all fair game.
Keep in mind that these are just suggested weekly themes if you want some ideas/inspiration. The content we’ll post may circle around these themes, but you’re more than welcome to post whatever you want, whenever you like!
That’s it for now! Keep posted for more info on events that will take place during the fest proper, and don’t forget!
