sorry this one is the real post! i don't know why i tagged the other one

destielisgonnabecanon  asked:

hey there, i'm writing an essay about how destiel is real for a friend of mine and I was wondering what you think the most important pieces of meta that i should put in? can you recommend anything?

Hi - wow, that’s some dedication. All I did for my friends was send them some links - and, on one memorable occasion, I spent one entire 30 minutes conversation occasionally glancing at my (female&blinded by heteronormativity) friend’s lips instead of looking at her eyes, and by the end of it she was uncomfortable af and half convinced I was into her, and that’s when I presented her with a list of gifsets like -

- and basically dropped my mic and sashayed out.

(Man, I wish my hair was long enough to be flicked back.)

She changed her mind after that, by the way. And it’s really weird how most behaviours and gestures are used on screen precisely because we understand them as human things we all do on a deep level, and yet we’re suddenly unable to figure out what they mean if they’re not about a man and a woman. Uh.

(That applies to me as well, by the way. We see what we know about, not what is actually there, and that’s just inevitable - but can be unlearned, with some patience and many, many mistakes.)

Anyway, here are a bunch of things - I hope they’re useful.


Also, the entire S8, which was basically a demented Jane Eyre AU, and the entire S11, because, again, that Amara thing didn’t make sense without Destiel subtext, and finally @deanswingsbothways’ drunken rant (spoiler: contains the line “Destiel is not a story we are telling each other. Destiel is a story we are being told.” and bless).

You should also consider pimping your essay a bit, because there are a lot of posts and gifsets about how Destiel is regularly paralleled with canon couples on Supernatural, or follows the same rules as romantic relationships in movies. Here’s a bunch of them: Destiel and Sam/JessDestiel vs Dean/AnnaDestiel vs Sam/Amelia, Destiel vs David/VioletDestiel and Spuffy, Destiel and Clexa, Destiel and Phoebe/ColeDestiel vs Charlie/Gilda, Destiel vs every other couple on SupernaturalDestiel and Lucifer having funDestiel and romantic movies, Destiel and the Doctor, Destiel and Belle/Rumplestiltskin, Destiel and Tangled, Destiel and Saileen, and, of course, the beautiful and despairing trainwreck that was Repo Man.

And finally, there was that one time I went crazy and spent an entire weekend mapping every single love trope they’ve ever used around those two idiots in love, because I was just that fed up and the thing’s there, okay, and the more they say it’s not the more layers of tropes and mirrors and longing glances and narrative parallels they keep slathering on top of this thing, so, whatever and who even knows. At this point, you’re free to say it’ll never go canon because they’re homophobic or assume their audience is homophobic, and you’re free to say it’ll never go canon because of internal narrative reasons (God knows both Dean and Cas are never going to believe they’re actually good enough for each other), but to say there’s nothing there at all - that’s beyond whatever.

Anyway, my post is here, and these were the final conclusions:

As you may have guessed, this is something I’m sort of interested in - I came for the monsters and started to reblog stuff out of spite when I realized I was being treated like a crazy fangirl who sees love everywhere because women (right). If you’re looking for more sugary goodness, I tag stuff as destiel, spn meta (my own opinions), awesome meta (other people’s opinions), love tropes and parallels, and you can also have a look at some excellent meta writers who have eyes and therefore see Destiel and sometimes discuss it - people like @elizabethrobertajones​, @grey2510​, @tinkdw​, @bluestar86​, @mittensmorgul​, @floralmotif​, @k-vichan, @treefrogie84, @thevioletcaptain or @postmodernmulticoloredcloak (and I know I’m forgetting someone - that’s what sleeping four hours does to you, sorry). So, again - I know this post is a bit ‘join our cult’ (which is what you asked for, but still), but really - what I like about this fandom is that we can talk about stuff and we can disagree about stuff and still be friends, but this new idea currently spreading in the real world like wildfire - that not only you can have your own opinions (totally legit), but you can also have your own facts - nope. I hope your friend reads your essay (you’re welcome to share it, by the way) and sees that yes, there’s objectively something going on. If they still don’t, the final test is, “What if Cas were a woman? Would you see it then?” 

(And we all know the answer to that question, don’t we?)

Seriously, good luck.


EDIT - More great meta

( @destielisgonnabecanon - you’re welcome! Go win that bet! 😁)

anonymous asked:

Ok so I read the anon tag but it's all so vague I can't piece it together. Do you mind recapping it for me everything they've said and if any came true? They said don't be upset but like Elounor pics came out that day so was that suppose to be happy lol? Idk sorry to bug you but could you describe everything so far ://

for the most part, my anon warns about stunt related things, like articles and pap pics. i started getting them at the end of february, and they’ve been fairly consistent with sending them. going through every anon they’ve sent and fact-checking with articles and such would take a very long time.. so here’s a timeline of some of the main things they’ve said and what came true about it:

February 27th: “March 3rd. Be ready :) x”

this was the day we got elounor pap pics at the airport, showcasing them as a couple and confirming the rumors flying around about them getting back together

March 6th: “The contract is ending :) x”

this anon still confuses me a bit.. it’s regarding louis, as they sent me another anon saying “Louis’ . That’s why they are trying to ruin his name. It’s a smear campaign against him.” or i think it was them? this is before we had a system so i could distinguish the fake anons from the real ones

we don’t know specifically what contract it pertains to and if it came true yet. however, this anon was sent just a few hours before we got pap pics of ann marie thompson, head of media at syco, along with a few other lawyers entering louis’ la house. may be related? we probably need to wait on this one a bit

March 6th: “Keep an eye out :) x after tomorrow”

this was send 2 days before the music video for jho. march 7th we found out the music video would be dropping, and then it came out on march 8th. this was sent by a follow up anon saying “Music video :) x” on march 7th and then on march 8th, an anon saying “Did you like it ? :) x”

March 8th: “Its not too much for her. Articles. :) x”

this was the day eleanor left la and was papped. an article that day came out about the incident and how the girl was pressing charges. the next day, we got the article about eleanor leaving la and they used the pap pics. this was

March 9th: “Articles. :) x” and “Briana. :) x”

pap pics (obviously staged) came out of briana and ashley at the park with freddie. pics were used in an article that talked about the airport incident and louis getting back together with eleanor

March 12th: “Trying to make you believe. :) x”

this was sent on the week harry resurfaced in new york. a few days later, harry followed zoe kravitz on instagram so people speculated them being a thing (x), obviously still trying to enforce a womanizer image on him. this is what i think the anon was referring to, but it could mean something else

March 15th: “WTWCD. Third line. :) x” and “Pics :) x”

i received some song recommendations earlier on anon (the 14th), all of them being rolling stones songs. one of the songs was ‘when the whip comes down.’ the third line of that song is “i was a gay in new york.” later that night, harry took fan pictures at a restaurant in new york. this happened at like 1-2 am on the 15th

March 15th: “Pics. :) x” and “Sunglasses. :) x”

a few hours after getting these anons, harry was papped at an airport in new york, heading back to LA. the previous night he wasn’t wearing his sunglasses on the top of his head, but that night he brought them back

March 16th: “Gym. :) x”

fans spotted harry going to the gym later that morning in london. he did not take any fan pics

March 20th: “Girl. x”

the next day, eleanor and louis papped at james arthur concert. fan pics taken as well and there were rumors that louis and eleanor were kissing

March 21st: “Articles. :) x”

articles come out on the 22nd using the pap pics taken at the james arthur concert

March 22nd: “Buckle up, love x”

harry announces on march 25th his first single to be released on april 7th. ad for it is dropped, theme on twitter is changed, and he posts 3 white squares on instagram. website linked in bio on twitter

April 3rd: “Don’t be upset, Friday. x”

this can be interpreted two different ways.. one of which being, don’t be upset because harry is releasing his music on friday. one of the lines after all is “just stop your crying.” but it could also mean shit’s gonna happen, don’t be upset though. we did get pap pics of elounor at louis’ house so it could be this as well

April 9th: “A.K.J.Z. :) x”

so i was confused what this meant at first but then i figured out that it meant alicia keys jay z… they sing the song empire state of mind, which is about new york. i got this anon late on april 9th and then on april 10th, harry flew into new york city and we got pics of it on april 11th

hopefully this helps. i tried to be as specific as i could but i haven’t really kept track up to this point so i may have left a few things out. smiley anon is pretty helpful, wouldn’t you say so? :)

anonymous asked:

sometimes i think about what could have made me like sc*tt. like. s1&s2 sc*tt definitely had his faults- esp. wrt his treatment of derek- but i think he definitely could have developed as a person from there and had a rly interesting character arc? like real personal growth and shit. it gets harder after master plan. is there a way that episode could have gone down the way it did and still made him a likable character after that? is there any apology he could give that would suffice?

cont. - like im not sure of the answer, but id love to see someone manage it. i don’t know if ive ever come across a fic that manages to redeem him from that moment while still acknowledging it. most fics either dont forgive him for it or they just sort of ignore it. for me tho, i think the real breaking point for sc*tt is the true alpha storyline. after that i don’t think there was anything they could have done for him to make him an interesting or likeable character. that storyline ruined it.

I think one of the biggest places where people take issue with Scott –– and this doesn’t mean they hate him or he’s a horrible human being (although some people feel that way too, and are entitled to it), but where many people see Scott falling short as a character is in that the show seems to have decided that “main character” or “hero” should mean perfect, and that’s just… that’s not good for character development, for plot building, or honestly, for a character’s likability.

Characters need to grow to be engaging. And people grow by making mistakes, learning from them, and moving forward. Scott’s mistakes, his flaws as a human being (and yes, he has flaws, everyone does, that’s not character assassination, that’s just fact) are really never addressed. He isn’t made to apologize for the things he does wrong (and why should he, honestly, since no one around him recognizes his problematic behaviors and calls him out on them) or face any apparent payment for them. This compared to the rest of the characters in the series, who are called out on their mistakes –– either by other characters or by consequences in canon. I always use Derek as a comparison, because there are a lot of straightforward parallels, such as the key moments with Isaac. Derek throws a glass at Isaac to get him to leave the loft. We know that’s an absolutely shitty thing to do, it reads immediately on both Isaac and Derek’s faces, and as consequence Derek loses Isaac as a pack member. That’s some hardcore, immediate reaction showing people in the scene and in the audience that This Was Not An Ok Thing To Do. The fact that Derek knew it wasn’t ok as he was doing it, and that he did it on purpose to get Isaac to leave for his own safety, does not make the behavior alright, and Derek acknowledges and pays for that behavior in the permanent loss of Isaac as a housemate and pack member.

When Scott, a short time later, throws Isaac into a wall in a moment of jealousy, it should, on the surface, seem to strike a fairly close parallel. We have Isaac’s Alpha, someone in a position of power over him, physically lashing out at him in some way. But in this instance, neither Scott nor Isaac react much to it, Isaac continues to go on living in Scott’s house and remaining a member of his pack, and there is just… no real follow up to that moment. And while I understand how that can lead some viewers to dismiss the moments as not being parallel (Isaac wasn’t upset there, so clearly Scott’s behavior is acceptable), what I and many viewers are instead left with is the message that Derek lashing out is unexpected and unacceptable, Scott lashing out is expected and acceptable, and that makes him… more heroic?

In season five I believe there finally was a moment between Stiles and Scott where Scott seemed to be being called out on his behavior, but even that came off as very “I’m flawed and you can’t understand that because you’re perfect,” which is… it’s how Scott sees himself, and it’s how the writers seem to see him, but A) that fails to acknowledge the ways in which he is flawed –– meaning that he can’t learn from and improve upon those flaws –– and B) makes for an incredibly un-engaging character. How can we identify with perfection? How can we root for perfection? And how can we fully get on board with someone we are told is perfect, when we can look at them and point out a dozen instances where they weren’t?

This is my major issue with Scott’s character. That we are told he is perfect when we see he isn’t, that he has a double standard of being excused from all of his bad behaviors when the characters around him aren’t, and I do think this connects very much to the True Alpha problem (I got another ask about my thoughts on that so I’ll answer that in more detail separately), because it’s just another level of saying “Scott is a better man, werewolf, and person in general than everyone else.”

Ok, now after all of that, how do I think Scott could have been improved and made more likable for many critical viewers? To be honest, for me it would have been really simple. Include moments where he apologizes for things. That’s… really, honestly, all I would have needed. Because like I said, I’m not looking for perfect characters. Scott acknowledging that he screwed up now and again would make me ecstatic because it would mean that he’s learning and growing and is trying to become better, and that makes for an amazing character arc in any show. If Scott had done the exact same thing in “Master Plan,” except when Derek asked why Scott didn’t tell him Scott had said “I’m sorry… I was afraid if I told anyone then Gerard would find out my plan. And I couldn’t risk that, my mom was in danger” then bam. I would have had a complete turnaround on my attitude toward him in that moment. He would have been humanized, we would have seen that he was in a tough situation, and he would have become more sympathetic by sympathizing with the shitty thing he’d done to Derek. Honestly, that simple.

soulfulspikethekiller  asked:

Spuffy and Bangel?

Like I told @anyasbunny, I’m sorry for not answering sooner! Thanks for asking!

Spuffy: This is when my brutal honesty truly gets tested. 

My mom and I were always on opposite sides when we watched Buffy together. She was die-hard Angel, and I was die-hard Spike. So I rooted for Spuffy, obviously. But upon growing up I started to realize I was rooting for Spuffy because I liked Spike, not necessarily because the relationship worked from Buffy’s POV.  When I started to look at it from that angle things got more complicated. I don’t think Buffy ever had the right viewing of Spike (during canon) for the relationship to work out–and with good reason. She was attracted to him and cared about him, but there were so many “buts” in her feelings. She never truly respected him and I don’t think a relationship works without respect. Season seven was the very beginning of the healing process/a new road for them. We never got to see it fully develop, in part because I think Spike’s sacrifice was a necessary step in her viewing him as a worthy man. So I’m very interested in post Chosen Spuffy (I haven’t read far in the comics yet). We got glimpses of their dynamic changing, but it never fully got there in my opinion.

One thing that does hold me back in loving Spuffy, I should mention, is that I’m normally not a fan of the woman-changing-the-man trope. Partly because I so enjoy the reckless asshole character. They’re just so fun to watch and I hate when they get all self-hating because their confidence/idgaf is what makes them fun. So my ideal future is one where Spike doesn’t become too full of self-loathing but becomes a better man and he and Buffy work on their issues. 

TLDR: They were fun to watch (and had some really cute moments), but I need Buffy to love Spike without reservation before I can truly get behind them. And for Spike to deserve said love, obviously.

Bangel: Another complicated answer! Fun.

I agree with Joss’s assessment that Buffy and Angel are the fairytale romance, but not for the reasons you might think. I agree because Buffy and Angel are perpetually in the infatuation stage, and they’ll never leave it. You know, that phase where you think the sun shines out of the other person’s ass and if only you could overcome obstacles life would be completely, totally, perfect? 

In reality, once said obstacles are overcome you realize the person is a total slob. Or a neat freak. Or they get stressed and ice you out. Or they hate parties and you love parties and dammit why won’t you go with me? You get the point. Buffy and Angel never got to the real stuff. Buffy saw some of Angel’s darkness, but that was easily written off as Angelus and didn’t really ruin the fantasy. And that’s what Angel and Buffy are to each other–a fantasy. They don’t truly know each other in my opinion. So I can understand why people ship it because, well, who doesn’t love a fantasy?

I do think that, once you watch Angel, it’s a little hard to understand how such an adult character fell for season one Buffy. But that’s obviously a writing issue. I have no idea how I would feel about, say, season four Angel and season seven Buffy getting together, because I don’t think they (or we) got to really test their dynamics. When Buffy realizes Angel is a dork who can’t sing and not this mysterious, brooding vampire well…what happens?

Analyzing them as a real couple is kind of pure speculation. What’s mine? Well, I think Buffy and Angel both have a tendency to ice other people out and shut down, so I think their relationship would have some serious stonewalling problems. Cordelia knows how to open Angel up. Spike knows how to open Buffy up. Spike and Cordelia are a little…less broody? I don’t know the right word? Than Buffy and Angel. I think that balance works. But that’s just me.

SEND ME A SHIP AND GET MY BRUTALLY HONEST OPINION.

reasons I like this place

This is really long and I don’t care, I wanted to say nice things today.

@my-name-is-fireheart was my first real tumblr friend and she is hella smart and I love how she can be that and sassy, and she can also take criticism in stride and tries to learn from that, even if people still insist on being jerks and acting like she is being unreasonable. Which she isn’t.

@illyriantremors is one of my fave fic writers and also one of the nicest people on tumblr dot com, not just because she is nice in general but we can say really petty shit to each other about different things and it’s A-OK, which is really great. Also she live-yells at me sometimes when reading my fics or listening to the podcast and it’s HILARIOUS. And she always notices when I seem to be having a hard time and we just are good at supporting each other, I think. Also, The Good Ship Moriel ftw.

@nightinsurgent is great because she loves animals (she basically owns them all at this point) and is really passionate about people being treated kindly in fic/books and in real life, and I can’t wait for her abuse post because it will be great seeing a different perspective on it.

@sarahviehmann is also hella smart and I can’t wait for everyone to hear our podcasts with her on fairy tale retellings, fanfiction, and her author talk. She is always really conscientious about how she interacts with people, which I appreciate.

@aelinsassryvergalathynius has been really sweet since the beginning of my moriel ranting days and sends me really interesting thoughts and posts and I really appreciate it.

@blxckbeak has also been around for a while (keeping in mind a while for me is a couple of months, I haven’t been in the fandom that long), and she makes awesome edits that go with my fics and leaves me lovely comments and she let’s me ask her questions about Nesta when I’m writing.

@acourtofstarsanddreams is awesome because she is Blunt af but in a hilarious, not mean way. We can also say petty shit to each other and laugh about it, and let’s be honest, we all need someone we can be petty with. Also she made my icon art of me and I will always love it.

@bkhrtn defended the hell out of me when that anon called me a bitch and that’s basically all anyone could ask for on this site, people to have your back when you need it.

@cass-ian always sends me my own posts when I seem the slightest bit upset and asks “ARE YOU OK???” which is so sweet and sorta makes me laugh bc I realize people are paying attention and maybe I’m being dramatic and ridiculous. She also has sent me and talked to me about the BEST fic ideas, and I really need to write just about all of them we have discussed.

Two of my “biggest fans” on this site (who are not included in this list already) are @study-read-repeat and @adiposesherlock and I always see you liking my posts and I really appreciate it. :)

@hollow-kingdom has been there for me, especially when I was going through the really bad part of my anxiety issues a couple of months ago, and I know my blog is “overwhelming” to her now :P but I really appreciate her caring (and also when you used to send me random anon stuff lol).

Also @kitashiwrites is an amazing writer and kind and one of the co-captains of The Good Ship Moriel, and maybe you should do a podcast with us sometime? :)

And finally, last but not least, and I saved her for last because I have ALL THE WORDS is @squaddreamcourt. I have so many brotp tags for her at this point it’s ridiculous, and tbh she combines all the things I mentioned above - she is kind and smart and a great writer and funny as hell. She likes to pretend that she is SatanTM but I know this to be objectively untrue because Satan cannot possibly have that much kindness and caring in them. If there is one person on this place I know will defend me (and people she cares about) in a second, it’s her, because she actually has a heart of gold (not like a whore), and maybe she says things to people sometimes that I told her IN CONFIDENCE but it’s totally fine bc her heart is always in the right place. Also she is incredibly insightful in ways I wouldn’t have thought of, and she has so much energy I don’t know how she does it, but this is also why I keep trying to save her from herself with these projects. I know everyone appreciates what she has done for the fandom in such a short amount of time. tl;dr she is an amazing person and I’m glad she started yelling at me on my fics on AO3.

So How About an Unhealthy and Angsty Blackice List?

Ehhhhh, y'all! 

So i made a list of healthy relationship blackice fics and i think the other side needs some lovin (YES REAL LOVIN’. FROM US. NOT THAT STOCKHOLMEY FAKE SHIT. (but er…thats just us, lets proceed on to delicious fictional Stockholm HOO BOYO! BRING IT!))

For this list I will delve through my bookmarks and subscriptions more because frankly, awesome dark-fic is surprisingly hard to find for this muy delicioso shippu!

Ao3 First:

Lovely Dark and Deep - Jack can’t shake his loneliness when the Guardians don’t immediately step up :( poor babu! Guess whose there to comfort him :>
Enslaved - Unfortunately unfinished and most likely abandoned, but Pitch finds Jack when he’s only 100 and takes him in. brainwashing ensues hur hur, but p. sure this, if it would ever be finished, would end up Jackrabbit, and that might not be our cup of tea! 
Go Back to Sleep - Pitch classically invades Jack’s dreams for some nsfw and super dubious fun. *3*
Time Enough for Everything - my all time FAVORITE JACK WHUMP FIC like honest to god, nothing is more distressing. I LOVE THIS SO HARD! Pitch captures Jack and submits him to some ridic torture Jack will *never recover from*. But, it has a hopeful goldenfrosty ending <3.
Gilded Box - Pitch makes a deal to hand over Jack’s memory box in exchange for DUN DUN DUN a…SMEXING. LOL it’s super dub con, but Jack likes it. we know he do. also Pitch gains feels at the end UH OH! so actually, this one has the potential to be rather healthful if their relationship grew from a 1shot story…
Glue - Adelaide Rain’s story. need i say more? its fucking legit, yo.
Everything That Rises - HOLY SHIT THIS STORY! ITS FUCKING AMAZING Jack is on Pitch’s side, but he redeems himself and poor Pitch has to suffer the consequences (poor pitch? pffff he gets what he deserves, and he gets it fucking good. ouch my heart!)  
Failure to Protect - OOOOooookay, so this technically is Jackrabbit, but it involves Pitch raping Jack and Jack’s recovery from it and Pitch’s demise because of it. Its really graphic. REALLY graphic, read at your own risk. I still enjoyed it :)
Skinny Chai - Jack doesnt cope well with a bad breakup (basically this is just Jack whump. its delish) 
Shiver - LOL DOES THIS NEED A DESCRIPTION??? don’t read it y'all its terrible. 
All the Love in the World - WELL FUCK ME SIDEWAYS. WONDER WHY I INCLUDED THIS HERE?! its the *good* fight fic. the one where they kill each other. multiple times. -squees-
Pomegranate - Hades Persephone Au, Pitch is a bad person, Jack still likes him tho! 
Evil Boyfriends - UGH I HOPE NO ONE THOUGHT THIS SERIES WAS ACTUALLY HEALTHY! ITS AWFUL AND RIPS MY HEART OUT AND WHY. WHY JACK. WHY U MURDER PPL JACK. 
So the Sun is Ashamed - dubious sex. lol what more do need, really? 
The Weakening Eye of Day - Post apocalyptic setting because JACK AND PITCH ENDED THE WORLD TOGETHER LOL also Jack goes bonkers and kills humans while fucking them because they look like pitch who won’t touCH JACK WITH A 10 FT POLE!
Tremble

OK, so thats basically my bookmarks LOL. Its all stuff i’ve read and know pretty well. Love it all. its delish!

As for on tumblr, we have our authors linddzz (also see selkie stuff omg), kalael (SO MUCH WHUMP AND ANGST YESS), charmed7293 (horrific depictions meant specifically to horrify. yiss! but mobboss is still adorable FIGHT ME!) , dildarium (WOW GET THEM TO LINK U TO MURDERING JACK!), adelaiderain (Like Drowning, whats listed above, but otherwise mostly healthy) , and uhhhhmmmmm…

those are just a few i know who are prevalent in the fandom who have written in this vein. THere are tons of others who write awesome and not terribly upsetting stuff!

Other good mentions are ionahi because King Frost is defs not in a happy place, and i see they are making ‘The Failed Guardian’ which is really promising for awesome jack whump and terrible jack decisions! wooo

I’m going to mention Mary P Sue, Gretchen Sinister, When the Ocean Met the Sky, Mira Eyeteeth, and Emerald Embers because of NDU things and their various prompt fills. NDU Jack is a sad sad sad hampster being buffetted on the ill winds of FOUR FUCKING PITCHES?! GOOD LORD BOY. RUNNNN! 

and meexart needs a mention because their blackice artwork (while made a while ago) definitely depicts very clearly that they are not quite all there. hehe.

and this isn’t even RECENT STUFF OH MAN! i had to dig way back to find these links, and some of em might be abandoned stories and unfinished (SORRY!) 

its much easier to find them being cute these days <3 (maybe HALLOWEEN PROMPTS WILL CURE THAT, EH EH EH EH?) (sideyes self. i should work on those too. oops)

Another warmup doodle with another rant attached, you’ve been warned!

For everyone who has been concerned about my absence, I’m sorry to have scared you, but I’m alive! With the stresses of this pending move, I really can’t handle baby warriors shitting their britches over ships I draw on a regular basis. Once we’re down in NC and settled in, I’m sure I’ll be back with the usual spit and vinegar. Until then, like the Crewniverse, I just find the baby war tiring as hell.

“Imagine being heterosexual enough to ship pewey.”

I’m pansexual, and most of the active shippers in the Pearl/Mayor Dewey tags I’ve seen are also part of the LGBT+ community. A lot of us keep repeating that, as I am now, but that seems too complicated for the ship haters in the tags. It’s just so much easier to dismiss us all in favor of a strawman narrative like the one above. Funny that, in a grand crusade to Stop Lesbian Erasure In Headcanons, some posters are positively eager to erase real peoples’ identities, to mock them, to invalidate them.

Some LGBT+ people ship Pearl/Mayor Dewey. Some can’t stand it. Others are indifferent. What matters is how you act around real people in regards to your cartoon fandom. So far, ship haters have stormed into the little shipping sandbox over there in the corner and tried to kick down all the castles.

Lesbians who have posted in support of the ship have been called “traitors”, called liars, labeled as having “issues”.

Pan/bi shippers who headcanon Pearl like themselves, as you can see in my doodle? Yeah, we’re faking it too. This reminds me of the fallout after Korrasami–even though Bryan flat-out said “Despite what you might have heard, bisexual people are real!”, parts of the fandom and several publications insisted they were lesbian anyhow. We just can’t possibly exist. (The personal irony here is that I started opening up on Tumblr and especially in the SU fandom about my own sexuality because I felt I’d be safe. Boy was I wrong!)

“Ace? What’s that?”

“Mul….ti….shipping…?”

Don’t forget, we’re talking about personal headcanons here.

There is no Change.org petiton to make Pewey canon.

Making Pewey canon is not one of the hot topics in the next Presidential election.

There is no letter writing campaign to Cartoon Network demanding Pewey be made canon.

No one is holding anyone’s pet hostage until Pewey is made canon.

So this particular group of ship haters don’t want us to see ourselves in personal headcanons unless it toes their line, and they continue to give this loving show one of the most hateful fandom reputations I’ve seen while they enforce that “rule”.

Why?

Some nebulous reason that typically involves juvenile insults against the character Mayor Dewey, and the word “lesbophobia” tossed around like salad.

Ship haters, you need to step up your game, if you honestly have the courage of your convictions. Shipping has never impacted the actual production of a show. Calling shippers names changes nothing. Spamming tags changes nothing. Just take me for example, I’m still drawing what you don’t like, doo-diddy-hoo~! Meanwhile, by the sound of it, a lot of you are spamming at people who have long since blocked you. Productive!

What you need to do is take all this vitriol directly to the Crewniverse. After all, they are the ones sanctioning the shipping. They encourage it. They even draw it themselves. And they dare to call your actions “harassment”. All that makes them lesbophobes, right? So many of you also tag your hate with “Jaspis” to the point it shows up in related searches on “pewey”–look at what Rebecca just drew! Surely, she is the enemy!

So go on. Spam them for real change. Hell, boycott the show, how can you support it when the creators refuse to support you? Sure, you might get banned off whatever social media platform you choose to launch your attack from, but then you can just boycott that too! How dare they not bend their rules to let you give the Crewniverse what they deserve!

Shit, while you’re at it, go call Pearl’s VA a “boring straight” and mock her husband.  

I’m not laying bets that any of you will do any of that. You don’t give a damn about it unless it’s just against shippers shipping things you don’t like. You only punch down because you know it’s largely safe and easy, and I’m sure it makes you feel very powerful. You want to bully. That’s it. You’re cowards. You don’t put your money where your mouth is, but your mouth is too full of shit to hold anything else, anyhow.

Thank goodness the Crewniverse isn’t a petty lot like you, because the show would never exist if they were.

anonymous asked:

Thank you for answering my anon! English is not my first language so in my language can and should have roughly the same meaning/translation. Sorry about that. As for the rest I see that the DA fandom does that shit hence why I never joined, made art or writing. I understand that it's bad to make your playable and pov chars poc if you are white, but also I don't understand the last thing you reblogged about divorcing a poc char from its cultural bg when it comes to a fantasy world (cont)

(cont) considering cultures do not exist in said world? Exp: making a black woman knight in a medieval setting? I thought this was an ok thing to do? Sorry for bothering you but I understand the whole thing about the playable chars and I agree, but due to language barriers or something I can’t put what writers here said on the topic it in the context of indie stories. Thank you for reading this far tho C:

So, first off, your English is great, don’t worry about that.

Secondly, in a fantasy world, there are no cultures except for the ones the author puts there. Fantasy is not history, and the Historical Accuracy claim doesn’t work.

It doesn’t work for a few reasons: One, “Historical Accuracy” is usually code for “keep it white.” There’s no reason AT ALL that you can’t have black characters in high fantasy. Second, history shows that many cultures interacted, as far back as we had resources to travel. Third: magic and dragons and wizards and elves don’t exist but people seem to have no trouble putting those in their European coded stories. Why can’t there be a black woman knight in a medieval European setting? There’s no reason, none at all. If a dragon doesn’t break your immersion, a black woman shouldn’t either.

So, lets’ talk a little about divorcing a POC from their cultural background. In Muse’s story, Maledictus, her main character Hadiza is a black woman. She was created by a black woman and given a rich and detailed background and story that in many ways, related specifically to her being black. In the fic, she goes to Rivain to meet her mother’s family and the culture there is based off of the real world country of Nigeria. Muse IS Nigerian and used her own experiences and rich history to flesh out a character in a way that felt real and lovely.

There are a lot of Asians in the fandom that are creating Asian elves, celebrations around the Lunar New Year, and who find themselves identifying with the story of Bioware’s elves. These stories and art are drawn upon real experiences that they had, thus making them honest characters that really feel like real people.

I created a black elf with no more thought put into it beyond “Oh look, I can make my elf black.” Ishalle was never going to be more than that. Because I am a white woman, I don’t have the experience of growing up black, I was never around many black people growing up, I’ve never experienced racism, I’ve never experienced the unique dynamic in black families, I’ve never known what it is to have daily microagressions lobbed at me for the color of my skin. The other day I was walking up the street and three cops were riding side by side on bikes on the sidewalk and I didn’t move for them. One of them had to stop suddenly and go around me and he mocked me loudly, but kept going. I’m white, I didn’t have to worry that that cop might see my unwillingness to move as a threat.

So when I made Ishalle’s backstory and everything, I didn’t have those experiences to draw on when creating his character. If I had to do it all over again, I would have made him olive skinned, closer to my skin tone. (I’m Serbian.) I would have coded his family as Serbian, I would have given him thick eyebrows and a long nose, and unruly curly hair. I would have had my own experiences to use, not someone else’s.

And we, as white writers, we don’t always think about this stuff as carefully as we should. And when people read white writer’s work, they lend more credence to it. When I read Memoirs of a Geisha I didn’t know the story behind that book. I thought it was an actual translated account, not that he stole her story wholecloth and didn’t credit her properly or give her any of the proceeds. And that’s dangerous. Because I took it as truth and I’m far from the only one.

I also reblog a lot of stuff that’s much better said than this from Actual Black Fans, so I’d suggest reading through those posts too, as well as checking out @medievalpoc​ blog for more information.

I hope that helps and please feel free to message me further with any questions you may have.

ETA: I went through and tagged all my reblogged posts from my marginalized mutuals with the tag #race in fandom. That tag will be applied to any future posts made by them so you can more easily read their words on the matter. 

fcukawa  asked:

so, ever since the incident i've asked lots of artists on here for permission, i even make countless of captions on my instagram the importance of it,-awareness is the first step, is it? this morning, one of my followers sent me a message asking me why people don't want others to repost their art, even if they don't claim it as their own? And most pieces of fanart have watermarks on it. But why do you have to ask for permission?

Thank you for asking this, I hope you don’t mind me answering this publicly.

(Here we are assuming reposts with proper credit but without permission)

I think it sums up to these two:

  1. Respect. Most artists have blog rules or somewhere that talks about how they want to be treated, which usually contains the line “do not use or repost without permission”. If you still repost without permission, it’s basically like a big “fuck you” to the artist. Of course, if it says “reposts allowed as long as proper credit given”, then you can probably go ahead without asking. 
  2. Control. Not asking permission = artist doesn’t know about the repost. The moment you do that, we lose control over our own work: we have no idea it was copied, and where the copies went. Sometimes we don’t want our art to be on a certain site (for me, facebook is a big no no), or maybe we want it on tumblr only and nowhere else. Or maybe we already have an account at the destination site and it ends up being a double post. 

Everyone’s probably came across this art before, but most probably don’t know where it’s from (it’s by Redjuice if I remember correctly it’s Kozaki Yusuke omg I’m so sorry). The first person who scanned/reposted it probably gave credit. The first couple people who shared and reposted it probably gave credit. But at some point it was lost. Reposts everywhere and it’s hard to find the origin. This is why control over where our art goes is really important. Ideally if no one ever repost without permission, I can know exactly where copies of my art are.

When you come ask for permission, I get to know you. But when I discover reposts, I have no idea who the reposter is and what their intention is. Is it simply sharing what you like? Or are you trying to get profit (in the form of followers/likes) from something you didn’t do? And since you’ve already disrespected my rules, I can’t help but think that your intention is negative.

Basically, the “without permission” part is so disrespectful that whether you gave credit or not no longer matters.

Regarding watermarks and signatures, consider: when you look at a piece of art, do you really look at the signature and bother to search up the artist? Probably a no for most people. “If I can follow this person on a website I often go on for all the nice art they repost, why bother?” That’s why I don’t bother signing my work. It’s ugly and they don’t really do anything once it’s out there, out of my control. (Heck, some people even crop it out)

Taking things without permission is basically theft. The internet is not a separate world where suddenly real world laws and rules doesn’t apply.

I think it becomes really easy to understand when you substitute “internet art” with something else in real life. Would you take someone’s sketchbook and show it to everyone in your class without asking? Would you take anything from anyone without asking?

And hey, asking permission leaves the artist a good impression of you and it only takes a minute or two, so why not?

anonymous asked:

I saw this post recently that basically said aces and aros don't face oppression and face stigma instead and through that distinction cishet aces and aros don't belong in lgbt... and I'm kind of wondering how you'd respond to that bc it's been kind of bothering me. I could link you the original post if you'd like. thanks! no worries if you don't rly want to answer this tho

(This is a very long reply, so I’ve bold some parts to make it easier for those who have problems reading, like I do.)

It’s a very common thing in the LGBT community to try to lock out some aces and aro people, and only accept those who are already SGA (for lack of a better term) and/or Trans. It’s been going on since other people first became aware of asexuality and aromanticism, unfortunately. And sadly, I have to accept that I can’t respond to every single person who holds this idea, although I do try my best with what I can.

For the most part, I make my own posts, and then only respond to those that reblog mine with that sort of rhetoric. Although I have been known to reblog those posts that especially make me upset.

My acephobia tag is full of it, as well as stories from others who experience acephobia. (My arophobia tag is much less dense as I focus far more heavily on ace issues, I’m sorry to say.) So if you need some reference on that, on page 2 and page 3 is where I really get into replying to other ace and arophobes. (First page is mostly people talking about their own experiences, which is especially a good read if you want to arm yourself with knowledge.)

But sharing my first hand experiences is what I usually go for. I can’t speak of the experiences of others, although I do feel like I should repeat what other people have told me their experiences have been- and I also come at it with what I have learned over the years, and what I’ve seen. Things that people would like to forget and sweep under the rug. 

[And here I go into a rant, about something I’m still very bitter about.]


Like how cis white straight and sga women ignored that a new medication on the market would be used to medicalize asexual women, because they want a drug that will increase desire to want sex, the “female viagra” that has terrible side effects and acts nothing like actual viagra, (Viagra being an instant drug to keep an arrousal and Flibanserin having to be used every day to slightly increase one’s desire for sex.) because it was marketted as “female viagra” and “validates female sexuality”. And so, with the petitions that asexuals made, with our history, and still ongoing process of being diagnosed with a mental illness, we were lobbied against by “sex positive” cis white straight and sga women.

[/End rant.]


There’s a lot that you can say. Often times, when you state things that asexuals are actually oppressed with, such as dehumanization, constant threats, forced therapy by parents or loved ones, they comeback with “but it isn’t institutionalized oppression”, and when you comeback with what is institutionalized oppression that ace people face, (again I have more information on aces than aros, sorry) such as people being less willing to hire someone who is ace, less willing to rent out to someone who is ace, with overall more inclination to view them as robotic or, get this, animalistic, as well as feelings that they’ll try to make others ace, too- we also have a history of asexuals being diagnosed with HSDD (hypoactive sexual desire disorder), reguardless of identifying as ace or not- and in the DSM-V, having to state that you’re asexual in order to not be diagnosed with HSDD (which still requires already knowing what asexuality is, and accepting that it’s okay to be ace). And also marriage can be entirely revoked if one hasn’t had sex with their spouse.

And then when you come at them with all that it’s, “But you wont be beaten up on the streets for being ace or aro.”

Which tbh, sga people who are in the closet or can pass for straight, and trans people who are in the closet who can be passed as cis, by those standards, are not oppressed because they don’t get beaten up on the streets for being sga and/or trans.

In fact, equating your own sexuality/romantic orientation and transness with what harrassment you face can be very invalidating for a lot of people at best, and can only further stigmatize someone’s identity even more, by saying it’s “bad because look at all of these horrible things that have to happen for you to be a REAL sga or trans person!” Which, in the trans community at least, is a huge deal. People don’t feel like they’re “really trans” if they don’t have these certain traits that equate to some sort of suffering. It’s important to keep this in mind so you don’t accidentally invalidate those around you who have not faced the sort of things that you face. It’s important to remember that opression is not what makes us who we are. It’s important to remember that this is not a competition for who is oppressed the most. Do not invalidate.

So really. First know why what somebody says is bullshit, understand how what they say can hurt other people (but stay in your lain, do not speak of the experiences of others that are not of your own identity), and lock them into that corner that they’ve already made for themselves.

BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY, know that you probably wont change their mind. Do not do any of this to change their mind, because you’re probably not gonna do this. Argue with them and say what you have to say because other people are reading what you’re writing. Other people, who don’t have strong opinions, or are unsure about the whole thing, and are not dedicated to hating ace and aro people for their aceness and aroness, for them, this can make a difference. For other aces and aro people, this can make a difference. It can validate, and when you’re constantly feeling like you don’t belong anywhere, that can be very important.

Do this for other people. Do this for yourself. But don’t do this for the person you’re arguing with. Words are powerful. Ideas spread. Society can change. But you can’t change a person who is determined to not grow and learn as a person.

anonymous asked:

Omg that post was totally right when I had just started caring about the band I also thought 'uhh Louis? He's kinda the no one isn't he I don't care about him' and now i'm in love with him and all his little things

Hi Nonnie,

I have to admit I’m not sure which post specifically you’re referencing. Or are you referencing my tags on a post (Or really a lot of posts from today when I tagged independent louis)? I’m guessing that it might be the latter where I stated that Louis having an independent identity rather that just a loved up boyfriend is important.

It is.  He was painted as a loved up boyfriend who valued his privacy and led a private quiet life w his gf unless he was at a footie match.

Is that what you mean?

I do think it is incredibly important for him and to him. Can you imagine the emotions he must be experiencing as he gets to begin to live a little more openly as the man he really was, still is, and always was?

I bet he is over the moon and I suspect that’s why he’s been looking so much happier recently. The closet is a harsh place and he was closeted in an extremely severe and painful way bc they essentially trained him to suppress a part of his personality.

I am thrilled people will finally start to see the real person. He never was just a loved up boyfriend.

He’s also:

Kind-the fan reports always talk about how kind he is always willing to smile for a picture or give an autograph or tell a fan who’s overwhelmed with being in his presence not to be bc these are happy times.  He’s kind to all fans, to animals, children, babies.  He’s just a good person.

Charitable-if I had more time (I don’t), I’d write a masterpost about how involved with various charities he’s been.  The craziest part is, those are just the charities we know about.  I strongly suspect that he’s done much more than we’ll ever hear about because he has often expressed how important this was to him.

Loving-I could link you 500 pictures and gifs of him looking at Harry so lovingly that you would be sick but I won’t. You already know

Loud-sorry but it’s true and they made him stand quietly with his hands behind his back and THAT WASNT HIM. THE REAL LOUIS IS LOUD LOUD LOUD

Funny-there are literally masterposts of him making Harry laugh. But it’s not just Harry. He makes all of his bandmates laugh. He’s been doing it since day one and he’s still doing it today.

A menace-he is. Same thing as with how he’s loud. He likes to take the piss out of people. He isn’t just a quiet boy who stands with his hands behind his back looking like a beautiful stoic angel.  I mean, yes he can do that as well but the real Louis doesn’t stand quiet and still throughout a two hour concert.

A great friend who is fiercely loyal—he stays loyal to his friends from back home, brings them on tour even. His bandmates have always said he gives great advice. And he’s literally all of their favorites. He would do anything to ease someone’s concern even if it meant self-sacrifice.  He was very silly early days and is was obvious it was to help relieve the anxiety of the others if you really paid attention.

A dedicated family man-just look at him taking Lottie on tour and affording her opportunities that people dream of. He admits to being a mama’s boy willingly. He loves his family so much.

Intelligent:  He’s business savvy.  He’s already attempted a footie club takeover (which fell through no fault to himself).  He’s been a guest judge on The XF.  He’s involved with BITB.  He looks to scout new talent and he’s good at it.  He has a good ear.  I could get into a lot of detail about how smart I think he is but I won’t.  This has already gotten way out of hand.

Well, Nonnie….You didn’t ask but somehow this has turned into a Louis appreciation post.  I guess I can’t help myself.  

I AM THRILLED THAT HE MIGHT FINALLY BE ABLE TO BE THE PERSON HE REALLY IS.  I AM EVEN MORE THRILLED THAT PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO IN THE PAST THOUGHT NOTHING OF HIM CAN SEE THAT HE IS SO MUCH MORE THAN THE BS PR NARRATIVE THAT WAS ESTABLISHED FOR HIM.  HE DESERVES TO BE HAPPY AND BE HIMSELF.  THEY ALL DO.

Prompt: You’re dressed as a sexy cop and oh god please arrest me AU 1.2k

-

“Please don’t egg Tahno’s house again,” Asami begged her friend. “He’s going to get you arrested this time.”

Korra put the carton of eggs back in the grocery cooler, feigning innocence. “I was thinking of making an omelet for breakfast tomorrow,” she said. “Or maybe french toast.”

“You’re going to eat cold cereal at 2pm because you’re going to be too exhausted for anything else and you know it.”

Korra grinned. “I love Halloween. Especially when it’s on a Friday night.”

I hope I'm not bothering you but I'm a little confused about what is so wrong with the mom jokes in haikyuu? Maybe I've just missed what been going on in the fandom lately? But I don't see what so bad? I think I can understand because sometimes that all Suga is seen as and some can overlook his actual character, but as a fanfic writer I think there a place where one can joke while also showing his true character. Sorry if this seems rude. I'm just trying to understand. I don't mean to offend!!

No no you’re fine! Don’t mind at all. In fact i fully expected this since i didn’t want to make that psa-type post a long one and thus didn’t explain everything. So i’m going to link you to two posts that have perfectly explained most of the things i could say on the matter. 

here and here pls read them, anyone who wants to understand

now with that in mind, i totally see what you’re saying. i’m not going to tell anyone that we have to 100% banish any possible mom reference, if, like you said, you’re not neglecting everything else about suga and making him nothing but a housewife when he is in fact not that at all

also, i’m not completely innocent in this myself. i’ve reblogged my share of mom joke comics and the like. it was amusing originally because suga can be thought of as “the mom friend.” something a lot of us can be called in our friend groups, just because of our personalities. but there’s a couple gross things about this case that i can add…

one. it’s like when the whole “trash” thing happened. it was funny for a while but then….the fandom… would not.. stop. calling. them. trash. (kuroo and oikawa specifically, in case anyone was lucky enough to miss that era). if something is amusing in a fandom, everyone latches on and then it’s a virus. but when it’s something that’s too much, stretching the character’s real traits a little too far or disregarding them altogether, there just hast to be a stopping point. that’s why a lot of us begged everyone to stop the trash jokes. our kiddos are not trash. suga is not a mom. 

two. this goes back to what Carole said about all the other characters who have just as many motherly traits as Suga. Y’all want me to be honest about what i think cursed Suga to be “the mom” even tho Karasuno is freakin full of responsible, caring characters? He’s pretty. He has a softer voice. there. that’s it. If you left Daichi or Tanaka completely as they are but gave them Suga’s appearance and voice, they would be in the same situation. so it’s kind of icky that Suga got stuck with it just because it’s visually easier to shove him into a female stereotype. 

so, if anyone is just dying to make more mom jokes, let me give you some alternate options just based on who cares or supports or scolds: tsukki. kuroo. iwachan. ukai. ushiwaka. bokuto. makki. mattsun. tanaka. noya. asahi. i could literally go until my brain busts and this does’t even include the kids who are also stuck in the mom curse like yama, ennoshita, moniwa, yaku, etc. 

so at this point even saying stuff like “the mom friend” is just a little much. we can make them the big brother characters. that’s way closer to what they actually are. okay i kinda got heated myself and made this way longer than i wanted to, but know i’m not mad at you anon or anyone specifically. i just want us to keep the character’s best canon qualities in mind and keep on loving them\laughing at them in all the best ways 

anonymous asked:

I like the idea of SN, but only as brotp, hell, for once the term is acurate cause I see them as brothers. That's just my opinion tho I'm not hating I'm curious in fact. I saw a lot of people hate on the SNS fandom and to me it's clear they're not gay BUT I'd be happpy to hear your reasons as to why you're shipping them ?

EDIT: Everyone stops whatever you are doing and read this

Oh that’s okay :) and you are really lovely to say it that way, it was kindly put.  

My main concern is usually for people to understand that Sasuke and Naruto’s bond is really important; it is stronger than many of their others bonds. As long as it is acknowledge, I won’t force it on people, even If I do think there is no ship more romantic as them.

Tho I don’t know if I’ll manage to express myself very well, I’ll try it. 

I personally don’t think neither Naruto nor Sasuke as gay to be honest. I don’t see them as straight either.
I personally see Naruto as Bi and Sasuke as demisexual. 

Naruto had moment where he said he wasn’t attracted to women by the way, or at least that he didn’t understand “what was intractive” about women. I find it kinda wrong to assume that he is straight and that he’s just saying that because he doesn’t get it yet? I think the idea “straight until proven otherwise” is unhealthy. And considering some of Naruto’s words, I don’t consider him straight the slightest. Also, he did prove multiple time that he appreicated both women and men (his crush on Sakura or the fight he thought of Haku to be cuter, or some comments here and there)

As for Sasuke, he doesn’t show attraction to anyone in the manga, at all. People also see him as asexual or aromantic for those very reasons. I can see why, and I’m totally into the idea “Sasuke is ace”. It would make sense. I personally think he can be demi because demi sexual are people developing a sexual attraction toward people they are really close to. Which, for Sasuke who let almost no one close to him, could make sense.

As for why I ship them, so first, it’s because I refuse the “Straight until proven otherwise” 

Second, I trouble to believe all of this is only “brotherly”. They have indeed a really profond bond. The thing is, if Naruto or Sasuke were a girl, the question or whenever they would love each other wouldn’t even have been asked. 

I find it kinda impressive to realize how many Romantic Tropes they actually go through. Those aren’t Friendshps trope. “I’m going to save you from your darkness” “I will die with you” “There’s no way I’d be able to leave you alone” “I cannot be truely alone if you are still here”

Those are mostly trope you see on a romantic storyline. They are of course really close friends (if you are not friend with the person you love you are probably not really in love), but this is more than that.

Even Sasuke doesn’t accept the “Because we are friends” as an answer on what they go through. And the answer, the real one, is “I don’t know why but each time you are suffering, I suffer too”. And this thing isn’t something you see between brothers. 

(under readmore because a bit longer than expected)

(Under the cut: Why I don’t think they are really brothers, what make me ship them)

Conclusion : They fill romantic tropes. If one of them was a girl, there would be no question. The fact they are assumed to be straight is kinda disturbing and there are a lot of queer tones on the characters and their relationship (and as a queer person I personally see them). Their relation is all around respecting and protecting one another, how to bring the other up.  And their relationship is stronger than between brothers imo because they chose to have it. (better explained under cut) 

Sorry for the messy post tho

5.15 Reaction Post (long post)

Super long. I did not bother to re-read so there may be some spelling errors. 

  • No One is Alone sounds so pretty. The song actual sets the stage for the storylines that are in tonight’s episode. Lines that I feel really work with the episode “no one acts alone - careful - no one is alone” “people make mistakes holding to their own” “while we’re seeing our side maybe we forgot they are not alone” “someone is on your side”

ok, so i just found and read your meta on "nico→maki angst is pandora’s box" (which absolutely crushed my heart. oh god, pairings where one feels inferior and is on paper batting way out of their league, kill me now. this is why i prefer they only really get together after Nico makes it big as an idol or whatever and has confidence and money. Not here for housewife Nico, give me power couple or bust) which kinda encapsulates why i like nicomaki so much?? (1/3)

(2/3) They’re not destined lovers, there’s no red string w/ these two. They could very easily end up as ships passing in the night. The only way they’d work is if they both put a lot of work into a relationship together. At first (and second and third) glance they’re not ideal together and that’s their charm. In order to have a future together they’d first have to butt heads, tear down some walls and learn to communicate (it’s called processing, my gay children. Lesbians are famous for it)

(3/3) On a side note, after being reminded about how infuriatingly perfect Maki is (and how poor my Nico’s chances are) I now want a fic where Nico dates Maki b/c she plans to use her Sugar Momma to help her get to the top and once there, she ditches Maki for her true love, Fame/Power/Glory. Jk, Maki, I love you but lbr my true otp is Nico/Happiness At Any Cost. Sorry for this long ass train wreck, but this pairing is hot shit for me rn and I needed to get this off my chest.

um anon were you asking for my hand in marriage because uhhhh you can totally have it?? i’m not quite sure how you’ve done it, but you’ve totally read my mind and articulated my thoughts far better than i ever could have.

Not here for housewife Nico, give me power couple or bust) which kinda encapsulates why i like nicomaki so much??

power couples are my SHIT; literally all of my otp’s are power couples in some way, shape or form. i agree with you, all of my college!nicomakis & older gotta have nico be successful in some way, whether she’s a super idol, model, or my personal favorite–voice/actress. maki’s pretty much perfect in every practical sense, and i guess it’s the masochist in me that decided “hey, you know who would be perfect for her? the bitter unhappy one with no real talents.” GG, BRO

They’re not destined lovers, there’s no red string w/ these two. They could very easily end up as ships passing in the night. The only way they’d work is if they both put a lot of work into a relationship together.

SHIT BRO, say it louder for the people in the back why don’t you. this is literally one of my favorite things about nicomaki: neither of them were made nor destined for each other. the ship was literally built on the idea of FIGHTING destiny.

in the meta sense: i read somewhere that even the creators were surprised by the popularity of nicomaki in the pre-manga days when they had been trying to push nozo/nico and maki/whomever.

in the character sense: both struggle with their class backgrounds defining their future. hell, even both appeared to have been set up and written to be teased with other characters in s1 (rin, hanayo, honoka, and nozomi for maki, and nozomi/no one for nico). you could say that before like, episode 9, they WERE ships passing in the night–and they didn’t even have an actual conversation until the episode after. the fact that fans were able to create so much content for nicomaki–before season 2 was even out–based on their chemistry alone is amazing.

if i look at the series with fresh eyes, there’s no way i’d expect them to have been one of the most popular ships. they’re both angry, they’re both stubborn, they’re both rude, they’re both mean. generally–in a show full of varied personalities, it’d be a huge no-no to pair a character with a similar character. it’d be common sense to pair the mean one with the nice one and not the other mean one, right? WELL WHOOPS TOO BAD THEY SOMEHOW WORK OUT

literally nothing is pulling these two together. no red string, no same-class convenience, no social obligations and standings, nada. you might even say that external forces are working to push them away.

you wanna know what’s actually pulling them together? themselves, because MAGNETIC PERSONALITIES, BIATCH

i love it. i love that this pairing makes sense yet also no sense at all. i love that there’s nothing connecting nico and maki aside from their personalities, because these kids happen to be the two who feel most strongly about their passions, and the two who most want destiny to go fuck itself. if they so happened to fall in love with each other, to become passionate about the other, you can bet your asses they’d give their all to create a new future for themselves–a future with each other.


and on another note–an au where nico dates maki to further her own selfish agendas? sign me the FUCK up 👌👀👌👀👌👀👌👀👌👀 good shit go౦ԁ sHit👌 nico/happiness is some GOOD SHIT (even tho i’m totally biased and think maki would bring her the Most Happiness)

Its about Pharmecy and the ships

Hi… there’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while. Honestly I ship Straight ships as much as I ship Yuri ships…. okay I ship Yuri ships more than I do with Straight ships. Just want to clear this out.

This thing is going to be a long one.

I’m sure I’m going to write something similar if I come across another ship of a different game or anime or show. I’m pretty sure I did with the Legend of Korra and Bleach.

Anyway it’s about Pharmacy at first I was shipping Zarya/Mercy because that’s how goes down for me. Warrior and Healer (My shipping weakness) so me being a dork shipped Zarya/Mercy instantly, then Pharmacy somehow grew on me. (MAJOR Factor YulSic but that’s a.. different story I’ll probably never get into)


So Shipping Pharmacy became fun then once again there was trouble in Paradise because of the antis.
And there’s a few things people liked to bring up often to ‘Justify’ their reasons on why Pharmacy can’t be shipped. This more of a ramble so excuse me for being all over the place.

Many people try to say Pharmacy is creepy because
1, Angela’s ‘way, way, way, older’ than Fareeha by five years… okay? Five years apart… ladies and Gentlemen please hold your seats for this.

2, Is that Angela was like a mom to Fareeha. Had anyone ever considered that Angela could have been like a big sister figured or maybe more of babysitter.(Yes I realize people may use that as a fuel to not ship Pharmacy about the sister thing.) Same as Jesse, big brother figured or babysitter to Fareeha.

3, Angela and Fareeha were more than likely never thought of each other in a romantic nor sexual way when they were teenagers. Well, Fareeha was a pre-teen because she was 12.

4, Fareeha might not have visited Overwatch as often to even create an atmosphere of this supposed ‘Mother/Daughter’ thing or even sister/babysitter.

5, They’re officially grown adults… Feelings can change. They can be attractive to each other or not.

6, Would it be different if they never meet before when they were the ages when they were young? Would you end up shipping them or still find an excuse to claim that they can’t be shipped.

7, I remember reading that it’s an abusive ship… (I understand the age difference because people brought it up many times but how is this one abusive?)

8, Angela age really well from what we can tell and looks young because one she probably took care of herself or she has this thing called genetics to look younger than she appears to be. So I know people were freaking about that part which leads to number 1. Blizzard from the looks of it cleared it up that she is 37.

9, Originally Angela was going to be 34 years old but ‘Someone messed up and changed her age to 37 from the first video with Winston.’ So basically Angela was going to be 2 years older than Fareeha. Would people still find it creepy!?

If you don’t ship them, then don’t but if you want to claim it’s sick and wrong due to the age and mother tone then please look at Soldier76/Mercy and Reaper/Mercy if you wanna play that game or display your otp while dragging down another ship.

Who knows Reaper and Solder 76 could have been father figures to Angela and they knew her when she was seventeen and Jesse’s case as well. Both men were well over in their thirties when she was seventeen.
Probably treated her as a disciple.
It could be the same where they had not care to know Angela on a personal level when she was only seventeen and only see her as a healer when she was at that age. Maybe afterwards from a couple of years of her being in Overwatch they probably seen her differently as a romantic partner when she’s in her 20s.
Which is understandable and A-Okay with me.


And if you don’t agree with what I’m writing… it’s cool, don’t like it. It’s really something I wanted to get off my chest because it’s ridiculous and hypocritical as well as frustrating to read those reasons. Ship Soldier76/Mercy and Reaper/Mercy as much as you want; I trying ain’t stopping you all.
It’s just silly and redundant for you to bash a Yuri Ship when you guys should be worrying about your ship and loving your ships and most importantly having fun with your ship.

Also if you ship both Pharmacy and Soldier76/Mercy and/or Reaper/Mercy. I’m going to be honest I like you far more than the nay sayers and keep on shipping if you find nothing wrong with it or you know but love their flaws for it.

If you ship Solder 76/Mercy and Reaper/Mercy and you don’t ship Pharmacy cause you just don’t want too and it doesn’t have anything with the Age difference or “How Motherly Mercy is to Pharah”. The real reason is that you just don’t see them compatible to each other and that’s that. I want to say Thank You for not being rude to us.


Ps. I’m sorry for bringing Jesse into this…
Pss.. I’m not trying to start an argument lol but it is silly. Though there is few things I’m curious about.
Psss. Hi
Pssss. I don’t know if this is even possible but if you don’t tag a ship, it still somehow finds it way to its tagging list.

I know there’s also other shippers from different ships besides those two that keeps on dragging Pharmacy.


PSSSSS. BYE!!!!
