can you imagine probably how nervous/scared he was??? after growing his hair out for AGES it feels kinda like a security blanket and cutting it is genuinely scary but he was doing it for the movie, a brand new chapter in his life and i think its so cool that they caught this moment in the magazine??? not to be fake deep but im obsessed w this one
can we please stop making fun of cumberbatch for the way he looks, like there are people with his features who read that shit, do u have any idea how soul crushing it is to see everyone saying he looks disgusting, like an alien, etc then looking in the mirror and seeing the same features ??
like fuck off, you cant preach abt everyone being beautiful then turn around n shit on this one celebrity’s appearance, there are a million other things you can criticize him for, dont do it based on his looks
Goth walked through back alleyways, bored and thinking about pallete, who had asked him to meet tomorrow to hang out. Thinking like that made goth’s face bright red/blue(not sure which you use) when his thought became slightly more tainted. He shook his head to rid these thoughts before seeing dust. Everywhere. He stopped shocked at the sight and slowly turned around taking in the scene before spotting a scarily familiar hat on the ground.
(I HAVE BEEN DRAWING ANGST FOR THE PAST WEEK NOW AND PLAESE SOMEONE STOP ME BEFORE I CRY)
I feel the need to say this now, in the wake of that frankly ridiculous and hateful “toxic Voltron accounts” list and seeing how it has affected people I follow, respect and admire.
Haters and crusaders don’t bother me. They never have. I will continue to do my thing in this fandom. I was not on that list (a shame, really), but even if I was, it would change absolutely nothing. The Voltron fandom is important to me. It is the first fandom I have been in since the beginning, and the first fandom that has really allowed me to have an actual following with regards to my fanworks, and that has enabled me to have a real, profound connection with other fans and even people I would consider so talented as to be beneath them. This fandom has given me the validation I have perhaps unjustifiably craved for eight years. The fact that people are feeling hurt and actively targeted by this list and the blog that posted it is something abhorrent.
They claim to be on some sort of moral crusade in search of some ideological purity, a virtual book-burning of anything anyone might enjoy that might not be what you’d show at a Bible study session. It’s disgusting. It’s CENSORSHIP. Censorship is something the internet has always collectively fought against. Free speech means people say things you don’t agree with all the time, but that doesn’t mean you have to listen.
It’s exactly the same with fandom. If someone makes content you do not like, you ignore them. YOU DO NOT WRITE A LIST OF PEOPLE WHO DO THINGS YOU DISLIKE AND PIN IT TO THE CHURCH DOOR. This is nothing short of a witch hunt. No one is responsible for other people’s wellbeing. If you are old enough to be on the internet, you are old enough to make your own decisions regarding content you wish to view, and if you don’t have the stomach for something that might slip through a coded safety net, then maybe you aren’t actually mature enough to be in fandom spaces yet. It doesn’t matter whether you are thirteen or thirty, you have no right to be fandom police, and you have no right to demand that someone babyproof everything. This isn’t a school, this isn’t a youth centre, this isn’t a fenced area that says “no adults”. This is a WEBSITE. This is an intergenerational space of creativity and everyone has the right to create their content, whether you like it or not.
In your misguided attempt to create a “safe space”, this fandom has just become incredibly unsafe and alienating for absolutely everyone who does not conform to this frankly fascist ideological purity you seem so intent on maintaining.
I sincerely hope that the creators on the list won’t give up on this fandom because of this. Voltron is still Voltron, morality crusaders aside.
