tagging those people because of reasons

anonymous asked:

mel why do you even care though? people tag shit as shit its not all the time because it shares its aesthetic or matches their aesthetic etc. it ain't gonna kill you

its gonna kill my ocs lmao. if people tagged your original art, something that you worked hard on, as something it’s not wouldn’t you be mad? especially if they’re tagging it as something you dislike? there’s a reason people say “don’t tag as so and so” in their art posts. it’s because they don’t like it. and it’s my fault that i didn’t include it in the original description, i overlooked this part, but i’m still going to complain about it so unfollow if it irks you.

When you think about it, it’s actually quite sad and scary how many people ship Karamel not seeing how unhealthy and toxic the relationship itself is. They perceive the relationship as something normal thinking that’s the exact way all relationships should work because “who cares the guy treats the girl like shit if he’s hot;” they literally aspire to have relationship just like that only because that’s exactly what they’ve seen/read being romanticized and glamorized for all those years in movies, books or TV shows. And that is exactly why representation matters. 

Many Karamel fans are feeling insulted when someone tells them their ship is unhealthy and instead of listening for once they just give us irrelevant arguments, top it off with “it’s just a ship, chill,” and block us. No, the reason why many people are pissed off at what has been happening to Supergirl ever since CW happened is not that we are “heterophobic” or “trying to ruin your fun with shipping,” it’s the fact that there are many young people watching the show, looking up mostly to Kara, and when they see a scene where Mon-El literally intentionally insults her in front of everyone because something didn’t go his way but she ends up with him at the end of the episode anyway because that’s what “she’s supposed to do,” no one’s gonna tell them “well, that’s actually bullshit; that’s not how relationships should work.” And to top this all off, after episode those young people go around Twitter or Tumblr and all they see is y’all calling Kara a bitch and swooning 😍😍😍 over Mon-El calling Kara selfish for no apparent reason because that was so cute, relationship goals 👌👌👌.

So maybe try to pull your heads out of your asses for once, see what’s right in front of you and just stop. Don’t glamorize something unhealthy only because you find Chris Wood hot or whatever other reason you have.

And that’s when his heart stops.

It stops only to a second later flutter like the wings of a hummingbird against his ribcage. The noise of the crowd melts into an intangible buzzing in his ears. He stares at the picture and he knows he should question the reason for why his body has suddenly gone haywire, but he doesn’t.

Because he knows those eyes, would recognize them anywhere, and now they are staring back at him from a picture on a wall.

Reunited AU. Harry Styles met Louis Tomlinson at the age of 6. At the age of 23 he lost him. What happens when he meets him again 36 years later?

What's the most interesting thing about tumblr for you linguistically?

It’s totally the tags.

Those tags where people write essays. I’m obsessed with those. They’re downright amazing linguistically!

I even proposed to do a research experiment on phrases, the juncture of syntax and semantics, and tumblr tags for my Computational Corpus Linguistics course. The teacher approved the project, but I ended up discarding it for a later time because of how difficult and involved the task would have been. There were too many problems to work out in the experiment and I realized I didn’t have enough time to do what I want.

The tags are intriguing for multiple reasons. They frankly make me run around like a chicken with his head cut off - except happier.

  • Syntax and Cognitive Science The tags show some very interesting things about phrasal structure. People divide up long sentences in tags during pauses. It’s unique “punctuation” and it says a lot for how people chunk thoughts, process them, and organize longer statements. It’s interesting where you see punctuation added or deleted; it helps you see cognitively how people are processing phrases.
  • Semantics The tags are full of very interesting expression techniques. One of the problems of written language has been that it lacks body language, which constitutes over half of our expression in conversation. It means that written language can be very easily misinterpreted for intent (think of how many texts get misinterpreted). But tumblrites and other social media savvy people have compensated and made written language HUGELY expressive. You see it in the tags. You see people use unique punctuation effects like deleting spaces, intentionally misspelling words, adding capitalization, and much more. There are emoticons, keyboard smashes, explosions of exclamation marks, and so many beautiful ways of expressing emotion. And people use lots of words in fascinating ways to get their thoughts across. It’s endless.
  • Diachronic Linguistics Historical linguistics is really cool. It’s about language change. Internet speech in tumblr has the latest, newest words and word units out there. You see so much beautiful language change happening. It’s how “Rickrolled” became a verb and “smol” grew its own set of recognized connotations. Word meanings change, take on new meanings, are filled with so much amazing sociolinguistic context. Abbreviations are made for fandom content. Abbreviations eventually become treated like real words, and then they take on new suffixes and become verbs and adjectives and nouns (”I lol’ed”). There are certain phonotactic paradigms English speakers subconsciously follow for creating new shipping names; I’ve even seen a linguistics paper on that topic. People are able to understand new terms they’ve never seen before; I’ve never heard of “Ruffheat,” but if someone said that to me, I’d know right away they’re talking about a Ruffnut x Heather ship. If someone told me “Hiccaang,” somehow I’d be able to figure out they’re talking about some Aang x Hiccup crack ship. We can just do that automatically because we’ve built our own compounding systems! And not only do we do that, but language changes SO FREAKISHLY RAPIDLY on tumblr it’s constant excitement.
  • Sociolinguistics Language varies based upon different groups we are a part of, and tumblr is full of many communities. Fandom communities, the science side of tumblr, the social justice community, and more are all out there. Each group has its own diction, vocabulary, and more. It’s also amazing how this collides with the fact that tumblr is global; the conversations arising aren’t just from native English speakers, but individuals whose first language might be Malay, Khmer, German, Korean, Japanese, or Finnish.

So yeah. And where you see all this amazingness the most is in the tags.

Believe me, I tag browse a lot because the content there is GOLD. Pure GOLD.

Someday I do hope to take my tumblr experiences and conduct a legitimate linguistics research study. It can teach us a lot about contemporary English, internet English, and how it’s used around the globe linguistically.

anonymous asked:

I interpret thus: When Dean says "we" it seems like he means "we = Dean, Sam, Cas" but actually it's "we = Dean and Cas". Similarly when Cas says "you" it seems like he means "you = Dean and Sam" but actually it's "you = just Dean". There's a miscommunication going on, between Dean and Cas, and between them and the audience. Different layers of meaning. The mixtape scene is a great example of this, and the argument they had just beforehand. I encourage you to watch again and interpret both ways.

Follow up: “we” can also be “us / our.” Also Dean sometimes uses “we” to mean “we = just me, Dean”. Such as the argument in 12.19 where Dean is upset with Cas but tries to make it seems like “Dean and Sam are upset with Cas” when really Dean is talking about himself and his own feelings. Quote: “Not only were you ditching *us* but you were also ignoring *us*.” In context, clearly, Dean is talking about himself - “we = just Dean, not including Sam”. Later on: “*we* were worried, that’s not ok.”

Add-on (because I’m re-watching and I can’t switch off): Cas during the mixtape scene, where ‘you’ is read as ’= Dean and Sam’ but likely ’= just Dean.’ Quote: “I didn’t mean to add to *your* distress. […] When *you* were taken I searched for months and I couldn’t find *you*. […] I needed to come back here with a win for *you*.” Followed by Dean saying “me and Sam we had her” so 'we = Dean and Sam’ and Cas switches back to 'you = Dean and Sam’ “And if you find her again?”

Final ask, I promise: I’m just saying for particularly the mixtape scene there’s always a clear distinction made when “we” or “us” or “you” is meant to include Sam, and when it is not. The times when it is not clear are, in my opinion, when Sam is not meant to be included - at least not in a strong way. “I couldn’t find you” - yes Dean AND Sam were missing and Cas was looking for them both, but it’s also meant to be addressed JUST to Dean here. The talk later start notably including Sam. (End.)

Hey! Yes this is a very frustrating thing in this show. Because there are several ways to interpret everything that the characters say. This is why you end up with MASSIVE debates over a simple sentence such as Cas’s love confession in 12x12 and exactly the reason why my tag for that debate is ambiguous love confessions. This show loves its ambiguity because it wants to keep all sides of the audience (though by sides I really mean destiel shippers versus people who would rage quite if it went canon) happy. (Personally I think the show should stick a middle finger up at those who would rage quit over something like Destiel but that’s just me)

This is also an excellent example of why English as a language generally sucks. Other languages have different words for ‘you, we, us, etc’ depending on the meaning. I imagine that translators for subtitles and things must have a hell of a time trying to figure it all out. (I guess that means the translation would entirely depend on whether the specific translator watched the show through a destiel lens with a knowledge of subtext or whether they were just as dense and heteronormative as the rest of the GA.

Anyway, it is as you rightly say, something Dean does a lot. He sublimates his own feelings onto Sam, grouping them together so he isn’t left vulnerable.

11x23 was a great example of where this became SUPER annoying:

You’re the best friend we’ve ever had.

You’re our brother, Cas. I want you to know that.

Textually, Dean is talking ABOUT him AND Sam, but subtextually, through an understanding of the shows history and Dean’s behaviour, it is clear that Dean is actually talking about himself. This exact line was said specifically TO Dean by Bobby in Season 7 after all “You just lost the best friend you ever had”. Whilst I would never want to understate Cas and Sam’s relationship, Cas has always meant more to Dean than Sam and that in itself is evident by the fact that it wasn’t SAM who made an excuse to drag Cas along on a made up beer run so he could talk privately with him about his feelings.

Enter season 12 and every freaking episode is bringing to light just how very different the feelings between Dean and Sam for Cas actually are (season 11 also did this, most obviously in 11x18 but yet we still had that useless little talk in 11x23 which gave us hardly anything *sigh).

I think the moments that you refer to specifically are in 12x19. But they also apply heavily to one specifically memorable scene in 12x12. Both episodes are vitally important to understand how Dean and Cas view each other compared to how they view others.

In 12x12 we get this glorious speech:

DEAN: Cas, come on.

CASTIEL: (talking to Dean) No, you listen to me. You–

(looks around to address everyone) Look, thank you. Thank you.

(looks from Dean to Sam throughout) Knowing you, it… it’s been the best part of my life. And the things that… the things we’ve shared together, they have changed me.

(reaction shot from Mary looking at the boys)

(reaction shot first of Dean, then of Sam – evidence that what Cas just said meant BOTH of them)

You’re my family.

(Cas looks from Dean, to Sam, to Mary)

I love you.

(Cas looks down)

(reaction shot from Dean)

I love all of you.

(Reaction shot and zoom in on Dean and then Sam)

Just please… please, don’t make my last moments be spent watching you die.

(again Cas looks at both Sam and Dean at this point)

Just run. Save yourselves. And I will hold Ramiel off as long as I can.

Following the pattern of eye contact, its pretty clear who he is addressing at each point, except for one point, when he looks down.

Therefore we have to go by reaction shots. Early in the scene the reaction shots are used to establish WHO Cas is talking to at any specific moment. After he looks down, we ONLY get a reaction shot from Dean.

Therefore logically, he is talking to Dean and Dean only when he says “I love you”.

Also we can argue that the emotional weight behind telling ONE person “I love you” romantically, compared to telling several people “I love you” platonically is the reason that Cas averts his eyes at that specific moment. A platonic “I love you” would not cause a person to avert their eyes.

However in the context of the whole scene, many people would argue that is not the case as the majority of other “You’s” refer to more than one person.

This is a perfect example of ambiguity in a scene specifically crafted as such. Frustrating I know.

Let’s look at the next scene that comes a few episodes later (but interestingly enough the next episode specifically devoted and referred to by TPTB as a ‘Cas’ episode, meaning that they wanted the audience to link 12x12 and 12x19 in their minds).

12x19 uses this language ambiguity a lot, but not to mislead the audience, instead like in 11x23, it is used BY Dean to sublimate his own emotions and thoughts on the situation onto his brother, and its pretty obvious that he’s doing it:

Dean: Let me rephrase that for Sam. Where the hell have you been? And why have you ignored our phone calls?

This is the first time where DEAN as a character is purposely trying to bring Sam in to HIS argument. We have seen Cas’s phone, we know all his missed calls were from Dean and Dean only.

Castiel: I was in Heaven. I was working with the angels. When I saw Dagon had captured Kelly, I-I thought they could help.

Sam: And?

Castiel: Nothing.

Sam: Well, at least you’re back. We’re glad you’re back.

Dean: Really? No, I’m sorry. Okay, 'cause while you were striking out in Heaven, we had a shot at Dagon, and we lost.

Castiel: I know. I received your messages.

Dean: Oh, you did – you did receive the messages? Okay, that’s good.

Castiel: Dean.

Dean: So not only were you ditching us, but you were also ignoring us? That’s great. 'Cause we really could’ve used the backup. But, uh, you were too busy with, um What was it? Nothing?

Whats interesting about this exchange is how Sam does it as well. He tries to speak for both him and Dean but Dean immediately contradicts him. Which proves that all of Dean’s “Us’s” and “”we’s “ to follow actually just mean him. Sam isn’t overly emotional and upset about the situation. He is more interested in finding out what Cas actually did. As you stated above, the majority of ‘we’s and us’s’ from Dean here actually just mean him.

Then in the now infamous mixtape scene we get this exchange:

Castiel: Sorry, Dean. Um I just wanted to return this.

(hands Dean a mixtape)

Dean: It’s a gift. You keep those.

Castiel: Oh.

Dean: Cas, you can’t – With everything that’s going on, you can’t just go dark like that. We didn’t know what happened to you. We were worried. That’s not okay.

The first thing to note here is that this is just Dean repeating to Cas what he already told him back in 12x10 (the last Cas episode and therefore also supposed to stand out in the audiences minds here). The audience has seen the last few episodes whilst Cas has been missing. We all know how Sam reacted to the whole thing – by consoling Dean as per usual. It was only Dean who was really worried. When Dean says here *we* were worried, he means *I* was worried – just like he already admitted to Cas in 12x10. The difference in these two moments is the intimacy of this scene. Hence Dean is most likely slightly uncomfortable and aware that his heart is suddenly out on his sleeve and vulnerable and he’s already been burned by Cas’s abandonment so he uses the plural words instead.

Castiel: Well, I didn’t mean to add to your distress. I – Dean, I just keep failing. Again and again. When you were taken, I searched for months and I couldn’t find you. And then Kelly escaped on my watch, and I couldn’t find her. And I just wanted I needed to come back here with a win for you. For myself.

Unlike with Dean, Cas’s words are far less easy to interpret. The audience already knows that Dean means that HE was worried and not Sam, but we don’t really know whether Cas means just Dean, or Dean AND Sam at this point. Just like with the 12x12 love confession, Cas’s ambiguity is far more difficult to interpret. Both Dean and Sam were taken as you say, so Cas most likely means both of them. But Cas isn’t addressing Dean and Sam right now. When he says he wanted a win for *you* it is only knowing their background and correctly interpreting the intimacy of the scene (following the mixtape moment elevates this even more) that logically, that final *you* at least, means just Dean.

Dean: You think you’re the only one rolling snake eyes here? Me and Sam, we had her. We had Kelly and we lost her.

Castiel: And if you find her again?

Dean: Sam’s working on it. Of course, he’s hell-bent on finding something that doesn’t mean killing her or her kid.

Castiel: Right. And if he doesn’t find something? If you run out of time, could either of you kill an innocent?

Here the plural form of the words is clearly given. Cas clarifies this time with *either of you* which further enhances the singular form of *you* in his previous line (just like in the 12x12 love confession).

Dean: We will find a better way.

Castiel: (gestures to both himself and Dean) You mean, we?

Dean: Yes, dumbass. We. You, me, and Sam, we’re just better together. So now that you’re back, let’s go, Team Free Will. Let’s get it done.

Castiel: I’d like that.

Dean: Great. And I’d like a beer.

Finally, this moment brought into text the ambiguity itself, proof that there is INDEED a miscommunication going on between them. Castiel asks for clarification on that final *we* because he isn’t sure if he is included in Dean’s plans, Dean clarifies that he is, and confirms that the *we* means all 3 of them. This time.

That final moment is a real kicker because it proves several thing:

  • The miscommunication is real between the characters (starting in 11x23 imo) and a big problem in terms of their relationships.
  • The audience is being invited to question these ambiguous meanings, since they have now seen a character specifically question them.

  • The writers are aware of the ambiguity and are intentionally writing it that way.

Added to this that in the episode following this one, the characters even further highlight the miscommunication found using plural terms. Max and Alicia constantly squabble over her use of *we* when really she means *I* because Max doesn’t want the Winchesters to think that he is overreacting like his sister. This happens throughout 12x20 to the point where by the end of the episode, it’s pretty much drummed into our brains that when Alicia says *we* or *us* she means *I*. The writers are specifically trying to get the audience to realise this and apply it elsewhere.

It’s almost a neon sign really. 12x19 and 12x20 both go out of their way to prove a point. Words are misleading. 

But they want us to think about this. They wouldn’t have spent so long having characters question the words used if they didn’t. 

Therefore its no real leap for us to question Cas’s use of the word *you* and how he means it, since it was right there in 12x19 amongst all of Dean’s *we’s* that mean *I’s* and so on… 

It may not be a clear distinction in either his *i wanted a win for you* in 12x19, or his *i love you* in 12x12, but the comparison is there, and made clearer by both Dean and then Alicia’s insistence in using plural words to group in other people where they really mean the singular form. 

If we are being told to watch out for it, then we damn well will watch out for it, and Cas’s “I love you” was not for the group- plural. It was for Dean. Just like so many other times he has said *you* and meant Dean and only Dean when other people are around. This is what Cas has been doing for years but it is only now that we are specifically given hints in the text to look out for this ambiguity and actually question it. So keep questioning it, and hopefully it won’t remain ambiguous for too much longer.

Tag List

Okay everyone…  I have a HUGE tag list as you can see after the “Keep Reading” break.  Some of the tags no longer work (I assume A) some Tumblr links have been changed. And I have no way (or time) to figure out what the new ones are. It would take me days to go through my followers and figure it out. B) For some reason, sometimes just don’t seem to work on here for no reason at all.  So sadly, I’m going to remove the tags that no longer work on the list because they are taking up space on the posts I make.  Hopefully through reblogs and likes, the posts will still be seen by those whose tags don’t work.

To those of you whose tags DO work:  I’d like for you guys to reply to this post if you want to stay on my tag list.  I am also seeing quite a few people on here that I’ve not heard from in AGES. I’m not going to unfollow you or anything like that, but I’d just like to know if you want to be taken off my list because I don’t want to be tagging you if you don’t want me to. So, please reply to this message if you want to stay on.  I’m saying “reply” specifically because this will help me out tremendously because then it will send me a notification through my email–which in turn will give me a list of replies and I can go through and delete each email as I verify you on my list. If I don’t get a reply from you, you will be taken off my list because I’ll take it you don’t want to be on there.

I hope this doesn’t seem harsh, I truly don’t mean it to be.  I’m just trying to update and reorganize my list so it’s more streamlined and easy to deal with. 

Thanks in advance everyone!  I love having you guys on my tag list, so I hope you’ll want to remain, but it’s entirely up to you. :-)

demoning replied to your post “I can’t tell you how frustrating it is to have been in the queer…”

no one gives a shit if you call yourself queer. just stop acting like its not a fucking slur when it has such a violent history ties to it. why do you care sooooo much if other people are ok with calling themselves queer or not?? why does a strangers personal level of discomfort seem “immature” to you? stop pretending as if youre so much more radical then other lgbt people because youre ok with reclaiming a slur, stop shaming people who cant do that because of the violence that word holds

Actually, the whole premise of your angry snark is wrong. The 15yo was specifically forbidding me from using the word ‘queer’ for myself, and then started to send me anon hate when I refused to tag my own identity as a slur. I’m done with feeling ashamed of who I am, thanks. 

‘Queer’ being a slur that’s so much worse than those others slurs like ‘dyke’ and ‘faggot’ is actually a TERF & exclusionist thing. It comes from TERFs. The reason faggot and dyke are not FORBIDDEN is because they’re very exclusionist terms. You’ll often seen rad fems refer to themselves as dykes in the same breath as they say ‘queer’ is a violent word and a slur that we are not allowed to use. Queer is a beautiful term that includes ace people, bisexual folks, non-binary folks, intersex and other folks that routinely get excluded by exclusionists. 

You’d probably want to brush up on your queer history and the empowering history the word ‘queer’ also has before you blow your mouth off at someone for insisting they have the right to use it. It is a violent word - we’ve been fighting under the banner of it for our own rights for decades. It’s our word, now - and yet TERFs and exclusionists would have us give it back to the people who hate us after everything it’s done for us! :)

Furthermore, ‘queer’ is a word that is used all over the globe - not as a slur, but as the correct, appropriate term. For example, in Australia. 

The insistence that queer MUST NEVER BE USED is a very American-centric rad fem thing. You are spouting TERF ideology without even being aware of it.

“The Ancients deserve more love not only in the fandom but in canon. There is so much missed potential that adding more Ancients could bring: sibling rivalry, drama, culture clashes, and insights to the first empires. 

Also, the Assyrian Empire was huge: it included modern Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan. It encompassed Egypt, northern Nubia, and much of the Arabia peninsula. To the west, it extended into parts of Ancient Greece (Cyprus, Cilicia, etc.) and the eastern Mediterranean, and to the east into the Modern western half of Iran.  Cyprus, Ancient Greece, Egypt, and Persia are canon and haven’t once mentioned this massive empire. I think it is a bit ridiculous.

The Mesopotamian nations (Sumer, Akkad, Assyria, and Babylon), Judea, Carthage, Samaria etc. have so much potential to be great, complex and compelling characters. The question is, why are they not included?“

one last thing...

There are some people who are deathly allergic to dogs. Who cannot be around dogs without needing to use an epipen. Who need to ask any and every person and place they’ll be in if dogs are around, because otherwise they’ll die. Anyone who lies to that person is an asshole and a jerk.

There are also, simultaneously, people who are absolutely dependent on their service dogs to function in this world, and anyone who tells that person that they cannot go to a store, or ride on an airplane, is likewise an asshole and a jerk.

It would be the height of cruelty to tell the allergy-sufferer that they’re a bad person for needing a dog-free space. It would be equally cruel to tell someone who needs their service dog that they’re a bad person for needing to have their dog present.

It is okay to have separate spaces that are safe for both those people. If for some reason they both want to go in the same space, there will need to be some negotiation. But it’s not hard to figure out that nobody’s bad.

Don’t get me wrong, there are people who will claim a desperate need to sink their axe into someone else’s thigh. Those people are definitely assholes, and the only space they belong is in jail.

But we have to have enough nuance to understand that just because something can harm someone, the person wielding it is not inherently bad.


I just read a post that say if a meta is ended with this sentence, it diminishes the meta and makes it less credible. But I have to say that is pure rubbish. A good meta of a pairing is a good meta even when the end sentence declares a couple an endgame. Especially if the meta was presented with reasons/proof and are very well thought out. And I am not even talking about my own meta because even I myself will admit I am not very good at it. I’m talking about all those wonderful metas that I have read in the #jonsa tag and how I have realized that a lot of people love the Jonsa pairing because they have proof/basis and not because of “reasons”. And if one is still very adamant about the position of this sentence, then, fine, I will start my post with this sentence and not put it in the end. Also, posting a meta and declaring yourself not a shipper does not automatically make your post credible, it just make you not a shipper, that is all. For your post to really be credible then you have to present us with a basis for why you end up with your own conclusion and the more well presented it is the more your theories or meta becomes believable and would make people not necessarily agree with it but at least can say to you “you have a point there”

And saying “Jonsa is Endgame” is not a slogan my dear. It is a declaration of what that meta is all about. So if you have a problem with its position at the end of a meta then I actually don’t understand why you care to read that meta in the first place since that was the point of the meta you were reading in the first place.

Honestly, Fans just being “delusional” does not really bother them because that is what shipping is all about. They just like the couple that they like and that is the end of it. They will forever go down with that ship you know.

Saying Season 6 doesn’t count and declare that Jonsa will never happen is akin to a Jonsa fan saying Season 7 doesn’t count and that J*nerys will never happen. It is another rubbish sentence because if we start discounting what happens in canon then everything pretty much can be discounted including the “not so epic” boatsex. And yes it was NOT EPIC. I asked my sister-in-law before I watched that episode since I know she is such a huge fan of Jon and D*ny pairing and here is our conversation:

“Sister-in-Law: They did the boat bang.

Me: So was it romantic as you’ve hoped?

Sister-in-Law: Jon was fast. He could have waited. The romance is gone.

Me: Oh. Is the boat scene as romantic as Robb/Talisa, Jon/Ygritte scene?

Sister-in-Law: To be brutally honest…NO.

Me: Really? Does that mean my pairing still have a chance to happen?

Sister-in-Law: The scene was so quick. (Then she even gave a very sad looking and crying emoji)

Me: You mean it was not even as long as Missandei and Greyworm love scene???

Sister-in-Law: It was quick. 

Me: Yay! Ok i will watch the episode then I will let you know the jonsa fandom theory about the boatsex. I want to confirm if I agree with the theory first”

That is what a huge fan of Jon and D*ny pairing can say about her most awaited pairing coming together. In other words, she was not happy.

And when I watched the episode I can understand why:

That is not how Kit does his leading man looks AT ALL. This is not EPIC. This was according to my sister-in-law a DISAPPOINTMENT.

But, never mind, the Jon and D*any pairing is now CANON. But it is filled with foreboding and dread. Not my cup of tea at all.

Now let’s move on to the purpose of this post:


To be honest, personally, I blame the show - the directors, the actors, the writer’s D&D and George RR Martin.

Before Season 6, I have never even thought of Jon and Sansa together as a couple. All I wanted for these characters and all the Starks while we’re at it, is for them to be safe, alive, together and finally have justice for what’s been done for their family and their house. I want them to survive the Long Night and I want them all back in Winterfell were they belong. Sansa, Arya, Bran, Rickon and Jon to be exact.

I know a good story will become great when there is a very good plot twist done right. It happened with all the best stories out there. The most recent of which that I enjoyed are the Harry Potter story and the Hunger Games story. And with TV shows, it happened with my favorite show The 100. So, I know that one can actually expect a plot twist if a writer is any good. But GOT is different for me since the author George RR Martin is to put it simply THE KING OF PLOT TWISTS. It’s one of the reasons why this show/story is so popular and addictive. And inspires so many theories and metas. 

A plot twist that the fans have all been waiting for was the R+L=J theory. This theory pretty much I’ve already believed in since I started watching the show in Season 1. I did not have any theories of the the possible effect/outcome for when this plot twist will come into play but I do know that Jon NOT being NED’s son is going to be important. I just don’t have any idea what the possibilities are.

Then, Season 6 happened, suddenly I am reminded of the feeling that I got when Harry started liking Ginny and Peeta no longer himself and no longer loving Katniss with Katniss having such a huge reaction to Peeta dying in front of her. I had hoped that Harry and Hermione will not be endgame because I like Hermione and Ron together and I had always hoped that Katniss will love Peeta but I was not so sure that it will happened since Katniss has a history with Gale. So I never thought I will witness the pairing that I liked come to pass.

With GOT though, I did not have much illusions since we were bombarded left right and centre with horrifying weddings and people loving each other and then dying, so I stuck with just hoping for my faves to be alive.

Then, the show gave us the best thing in this series:

And, I was like, Woah! this reunion was EPIC. I mean it had emotions, unexpected yet hoped for by fans factor, it had sweeping music and the acting was so ON POINT. Like you know something has changed. This scene was a GAME CHANGER for the show and the story, for both the characters and for us the audience. And honestly, I never expected them to be reunited first, much less it will be this EPIC.

So, I was suspicious at first, I was like Nah! it can’t be - remember I already believed in the R+L=J theory so I already looked at them as cousins. So I restrained myself even though I so much want to be in this ship like right then. I love to ship lol.

Then the show keep on giving me these scenes filled with SMILING JON AND SANSA 

After seeing these two characters season after season in misery and pain, seeing them happy and being themselves when they are around each other gives me LIFE dangit! And I can only take so much, but I thought i have to be strong… But the show never let up on me, there are these scenes where they argue, bicker, banter and talk things out that basically scream #married

there are the declaration of protection, giving the other the kill, saving each other

then a very tender moment that is so very rare for Jon but seems to be his normal state when it comes to Sansa

And these are just season 6 you know??? Can you ever blame me that I caved but once I caved, I did so willingly and even with the knowledge that it can end in heartbreak if I ship them. Season 6 was just that EPIC. And they end the season with the two of them sitting/standing side by side as the northern Lords declare Jon the King in the North. Just EPIC.

So, i thought, that was it. It was enough my ship was wonderful and I enjoyed every second of when they are together. I thought season 7 will be different. The show will focus now on Jon and D*ny and I have to accept that. I am still gonna be a happy camper because of Season 6. 

Unfortunately, or in my opinion, to my utmost happiness, the show did not allow me to forget this pairing at all… No, NO. In fact, they made it worse for me…


Then they gave me feral Jon

And all these scenes have nothing to do with Jon’s mission to fight the WW but everything to do with a certain kissed by fire Lady of Winterfell named Sansa.

then the bittersweet goodbye they had

Is it any wonder why we jonsa fans are hooked? Now and Always.

Because the show made it so difficult for us not to ship them.

Personally, I would have conceded that my pairing was not the endgame if Kit had given me a bit of these looks and smiles with his scenes with D*ny

If Kit would have at least given a smile on that boatbang scene i might be doubtful. But there were none of these leading man smiles and gazes from Kit.

What we saw in S7 with the Jon and D*ny scenes were Kit in misery and a lot of rolling of the eyes lol.

So, NO. THE SENTENCE at the top still is valid to me because I still have not seen anything to show me otherwise.

And yes. Jonsa is endgame.


They look beautiful and MAJESTIC.

Indeed, they are. The King and Queen in the North

Season 8 is THE TIME FOR WOLVES. And JON and SANSA are leading the pack.

Guys this shouldn’t have to be said

but please please do not cross-tag otayuri/pliroy/etc content into the anti tags. not only for you to avoid future harrassment, but because there’s people on there that feel legitimately uncomfortable with the ship. it’s one thing to post on the anti tag to call out harmful stuff that antis are doing, but it’s another thing entirely to just continuously post ship content on there just to make them feel uncomfortable.

also, please tag appropriately all your nsfw stuff, there are people who only ship those ships in a more platonic way or that don’t want to see that stuff in general for personal reasons and they shouldn’t have to be faced with that kind of content unless they chose to. 

i know some antis can be nasty but you gotta think of everyone who isn’t, fellow shippers included. please tag everything properly and help everyone have a better fandom experience.

Anti hiJacking PAX - breakdown

Alright, i hope nobody has any heart problems.


So, Jack(?) requested that the audience start recording, and then a lot of Jack’s videos started flashing on the screen, a lot of them associated with Anti in one way or another. But more important is how the footage got that weird anaglyph effect Dark uses

Then, Anti asks if we missed him. Might just be mocking Darkiplier’s return, or a genuine question.

Then, Anti points at you with a large kitchen knife. Not at the camera, at you. His throat is slit again.

“Look at you all! Just sitting there!”

As he says this, his head twitches in two directions. Seems like Anti has evolved since the last time we saw him.

“You all thought i was gone. Not worrying about…anything”

Obviously, after Halloween and Jack announcing it was a one-time thing, Anti hype died down

*Anti traces a knife along his throat.*

“You all thought i was gone. But i’ve been here this entire time! Keeping eye on things.”

Possible explanation for the glitches in Detention gameplays. Maybe it wasn’t Jack in the glitches, but Anti. And the reason he didn’t seem so psychotic was because he was just checking up on you. When people started theorizing Jack was trapped in the glitches, Anti threw a quick crazy grin (it was 3rd Detention video, i think) so people wouldn’t give so much attention to the “Jack’s in the glitches” theory.

“You stopped paying attention!”

Attention is Anti’s source of strength. Maybe those glitches in Detention were not just Anti checking up on you, but also him keeping the fire alive. After the Antipocalypse, the tag was taken over by antiseptiplier shippers. Anti doesn’t like it, and you will find out why soon. Camera glitches, the community theorizes, making the camera glitch some more, which in turn makes the community theorize even more, until Anti is summoned into reality, and it’s too late to stop it.

“Well, i hope you’re happy”

You wanted it, now you got it. But at what cost? Death of a great youtuber and even a greater person (As jack demonstrated after Anti disappeared, breaking rules to hug a fan)

“You found someone new…threw me aside! Someone to replace me!”

He’s talking about Darkiplier returning on the Valentine’s day. Anti is displeased. Anti’s choice of words seems like he’s firing shots at Dark’s return when Dark says just the same… “I’ve been pushed aside. Replaced. MOCKED.”

“I’m not going anywhere! I’m always here. Aͣ͗̾̄L̓̚W̒͒A͊̔ͦYͨͨS̋̐ ́̓̎̋W̅͋̽̈͐̔Ȁ̈́ͣͩ͗T̐Č͊͊́̾̚H̉͊ͧ̾̊̂͑Iͬ͒̽NG̊.”

This seems to be Anti addressing the “Eye” in his name. As he does that, he holds th knife dangerously close to his right eye, the eye that got injured and infected when Jack was a child, leading up to the name “Jacksepticeye”. Also, “Help me!” is heard a this point, much clearer, and it sounds like sobbing.

“Yͧ̅̐̓͊̔̋͛̆ͭͮ͐̏̇͑Ô̍͊̑ͧ͆ͨ̀ͦͫͤ̇Uͭ̅̆̓̓̈́͋ͮͥ͂ͥ͂̃ͮ͑̚ ͊̆̋͐C̍̐̉̇ͥ̄̿ͣ̇ͭ̈́̆̾͑̽ͬ͛̍Ă̇ͤ̇̐͑͋ͯ̒ͬ͗N̊͌͆̂̆͒ͥͣ̿ͮͮ̚'̆ͤ̾͒̚T̀̽̀͋̓͌̚ ͛̎̏̈͗̊̔ͨ̈́̃̉̇̃̐͋̇Gͫ͆͊̊ͦ̐ͩ̍͐Eͣͧ̀́Tͦͭͦ̆ͮ̍͂̀̏͛̓ͮ̓ ̈́͑͐͂̓ͭ͋ͬ̍R͆̏ͮ̌͂̐͒ͮͮ͒̍͌̋͂͛̆̚I̽̽̈̈́͐͊͐͌ͪͮ̔̚D̋̽͂ͬͨ̈́̇ͭ̉̇ͫ͋̚ ̎͑̋̓̅̐̇̏ͮ͂̊ͦ͐ͬͤ̆ͧ̌O͌̅ͭͧͨ̆̇͗͐ͧ̂ͫ͂͑̑F̑͑̊̔ͪ͑̔ͪͧ͊ͬ̃ͭ́ͣ̐͛̚ ͗͆͐͂͂ͮ̌Mͦ͐ͮ̔̚Êͬ̿ͣ̃͂̆ͪ̓͌ͨ̒̽̈̌̓̚.ͫ̐͛̐̑̿̇̎͐̃ͫ̐ͤ́̋́̂̾ “

Sounds like a message to both fans and Darkiplier. I can feel a battle coming.

Screw Alien vs. Predator, screw King Kong vs. Godzilla, and especially screw Batman v. Superman!

Darkiplier vs. Antisepticeye is where it’s at.

Well, maybe they are manipulated into fighting by something much greater and much more dangerous…

Why am I finding non jikook shippers in the jikook tag, thinking it’s okay to come for us for shipping our ship? Does that even make any sense?? It’s the jikook tag people! and the whole point of shipping is to have fun with it, hype up things that our ship does because it’s cute and we love it. Yet I’m seeing people saying we are ‘fetishizing’?? We’re being immature and making a big deal out of a “small moment” (I.e the Jikook Japan trip, Jikook Selca..)? Why are you even hereeeeee. When our ship has a LEGITIMATE interaction and spends time together of course we are going to be excited. Romantic or not, they still traveled together so let us be and have our fun with it?? Why is this even a thing? I ship multiple ships but I swear Jikook is the only one I experience so much bitterness for. Any other members so much as breathes the same air? Those shippers have a field day & no one says anything. Jikook spend quality time with each other, away from the rest of the group, enjoying their time off with each other? People scold jikook shippers for getting excited… WE HAVE A REASON TO BE. We are excited about OUR ship spending time together because that’s the whole freaking point. & we come to OUR tag to do so because that’s what the Jikook tag is for. If you don’t ship jikook (or ship at all), that’s fine. But don’t go into the jikook tag and tell us we’re fetishizing and then tell us that if we get defensive we’re part of the problem?? Get out of here with that. The only reason I’m even saying something is because I’ve been seeing posts like this all day and it’s just like??? It’s not that hard to leave us alone.

Frodo is supposed to be a mostly nonviolent character, so it honestly puzzles me when people say movie Frodo is hated because he doesn’t have any of his “iconic” scenes from the book…most of which are scenes where he participates in physical fights.

A character shouldn’t have to fight all the time to prove that they’re a character worth liking. But the way people talk, it seems like Frodo’s physical fights are half the reason they like him, which doesn’t make any sense.


I have had anxiety attacks because of seeing/hearing them and I’m sure myself, other fans like me, and @therealjacksepticeye and @markiplier would appreciate if you enjoyed the characters while keeping in mind the safety of people like me who have such intense adverse reactions. Not everybody can handle it and it’s important for you to keep those of us in mind.

Like myself, it makes me feel skin crawling and shortness of breath. My heart pounds and I feel sick to my stomach and it could all be avoided if we took the time to think of others. And in a community generally supportive, if we could at least recognize the issue… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Thank you in advance.

anonymous asked:

Uhh,, I don't understand what's up with all this about shaldins/antis.. Could you possibly explain them to me (´;ω;`)

Antis do not condone specific ships that upset them deeply for reasons that are important to them.

Shaladins want Shiro to be happy while romantically involved with any of the other paladins.

Grab a bowl of popcorn, take a seat, and try to stay out of their line of fire, nonnie: Because actual drama hurting real people’s feelings ensues from fictional characters being shipped or not, and that’s what people in the twenty-first century do with their days.

Rob’s Interview with Howard Stern. Highlights’ (my notes):

  • Howard Stern: I like it (Good Time) …you were fucking edgy!
  • HS: When you were doing Twilight, were you kind of worried that you will get stereotyped like, you will never get this kind of role? Like Good Time, I mean in Good Time you played this fucked up criminal

Rob: I never felt necessarily typecast in Twilight, it was pretty different from who I was as a person anyway. I was like, it was not my default…

  • HS: There are so many fucking jerk offs in Hollywood. They grew up, did a franchise, made millions etc…
  • Co-host : Did you walk away from it or did you lock in?  

Rob: You probably would have been sued (to walk away)

…. I enjoyed the whole process. So few people get an opportunity like that, for 5 or 6 years, it was crazy.

… not at the first one, not at all (regarding the craze and mania).

… I thought it (first Twilight) was going to be a little cool movie.

  • HS: It took 37 million to produce the 1st Twilight. You were 21 years old when you auditioned.

Rob:  I came in right at the last minute.

  • “If you could teach yourself to gag”  - the trick to get yourself to cry when acting. He said he was unsure about his own acting skills.
  • He had to take half a valium to reduce anxiety before Twilight audition
  • Before Rob was born, his mom worked as a broker for a modelling agency.
  • He started modelling at 12. Signed on at 13 when that was the start of the androgynous trend, when he has “pretty girl’s breast”.
  • At 15, his dad motivated him to join a drama club after speaking to some girls at a restaurant with him.
  • He got expelled from a private “arty” school for stealing porn in school uniform, and selling them to his classmates.  “ I got so cocky” and tried to take the whole rack of magazines and stuffed them in his backpack without zipping.
  • He tried to make up a lie, and was given a choice to either call the cops or his parents. “Every one of his friend snitched on me”.  He sold them for 20 pounds each. “I liked stealing things and lying”.

https://youtu.be/Snk6mGGKH4M to watch a short cilp about this porn enterprise. or at the end of this post.

  • He stopped stealing after that. “Went to a school that was way worse than me.”
  • He recalled the first thing he stole: Snapping candy bracelets.
  • Also liked stealing security tags in alarm clocks, “get high on it (stealing)”.
  • His big role before Twilight was Harry Porter, after which he got into a play but was fired 5 days before opening, without knowing the reason.
  • Rob said he looked like a mess at the 5th Harry Potter premiere red carpet, because he was eating In and Out all the time in LA.
  • He was looking sweaty and chubby, and was probably the reason why people wrote in to protest when he got the role of Edward based on those red carpet photos.
  • For playing Salvador Dali, he had to wax his whole body. For masturbation scenes, he wanted to really do it only if it came as a surprise to people (not at their suggestion).
  • Twilight series are teenage films, he felt that teenage romance should be serious, not smiley and happy.
  • Producer highlighted the smiles, he highlighted the frowns on the script. They felt that he has gone too miserable.

https://youtu.be/NrB28374Ggo to watch how he almost got kicked out for that.

On Twilight craze and Fame:


  • Goes in waves, not being able to walk down the street is “pretty nuts”
  • No one is looking at you, and if they are looking, they are not seeing the same thing. 

HS: Is it fun or is it a headache?

Rob: “Both. It is definitely a ride, but I wouldn’t change a thing.”

“… I wasn’t ready for that kind of evaluation (the intensity while also dating your co-star).”

HS: Do you think it is inevitable, is it advisable to fall in love with you co-star? Good thing or a bad thing?

"On the first Twilight, it was very different. Later on, people noticed the difference, you upset many people, you suddenly have the power and you don’t know what it is.“

  • Rob did therapy years later *when the movies ended*, had to know that the previous life doesn’t exist anymore.
  • At 26. He was feeling secure up until the last one. “Impossible to think you will repeat yourself.”
  • He had a massive freak out at the first Twilight premiere. He was embarrassed by he interview he did, promoting it like an indie. He left and ran out and left the country. “I’m done” and stayed 6 months away.
  • He renegotiated after that.

About Good Time and filming in New York

  • “If you made yourself grimy enough, you can escape being noticed”
  • He would love to get caught doing that (sell porn) now
  • He is very, very happy about good reviews on Good Time
  • It is going to take him 10 years after the Twilight series, to come up with other movies. Meantime, he tried all different angles (of movies and acting).

About Superhero movies    

  • To do one, you have to sign up for 8 movies. He cannot do it, after 5 movies with Twilight.
  • Because it is a commitment to work with a huge machine.

About acting method, and learning accent.

  • Multi-impression. Everyone is from Queens. Very specific dialect. He picked it up by immersing himself with his co stars who are all from NYC.
  • Connie is, ”He’s just a narcissistic psychopath” instead everyone commented that “he loves his brother so much.”

About Fifty Shades of Grey

  • He hasn’t seen it.
  • “I know the writer of the book. Met her a Chateau Marmont, just as “a lady from England”. I was forcing her to tell me every one of her fantasies.”*laughs*
  • That role  “just needs to work out too much”
  • HS : Do you go to gym? “One week on, 3 months off”.

About dick, fights and endorsements

  • “Very hard to confront a guy who is trying to take a picture of your dick.”
  • Rob’s last major fight was when he was 18,19.
  • Rob was looking like a punk with a half-shaved head in Toronto at a bar. Met a guy who is half a foot taller, taking pic of him. *He smacked that guy*.
  • Turned down a multimillion dollar deal to be the face of Burberry. “How did you find that? That is crazy…” he asked HS
  • HS :Why accept endorsement deal with Dior?

Rob: “… I always tried to avoid from being put in a box. Burberry being kind of British, always known to not wanting to be known as British (keep it vague). Dior was less vague as British.”

About audition, music and relationships. ·        

  • He goes in audition as a character with an American accent
  • HS : Do you play music?  He could “fool people for about a minute and a half,” learned guitar from listening to Van Morrison. playing basic F, C, G, E chords, kind of have 8 little run..
  • HS: Song writer? “2 years to write a song.” 

HS: Well your fiancé is…

HS: “Well you’re engaged, right?”,

Rob: “Kind of…”*laughs*

HS: WHAT? You the “Secretive with relationship guy…protective”? …I never get that, I think part of the fun being with a woman is march around with her.

  • HS: The woman…you are with, FAQ?….“Yeah, she is amazing yeah…FKA Twigs…she is like super talented…Totally different one”.
  • HS: Do you call her like FKA?…”Call her…yeah Twigs basically. That was her nickname
  • HS: “I wonder if you’ll get married.” …*LAUGH*
  • HS: “It is hard decision for a guy like you. You can have anyone.”

Rob: “I don’t know about that…Not really.”

“…Being an actor, it ACTUALLY kind of narrows things down…  you get kind of paranoid. Most people may think they want a relationship with you. Then they realised, this is not what I want AT ALL. There is a big imbalance in the relationship.”

About trolls (online)

  • “They are professional trolls. Addicted to wanting to cause hurt and pain. Most difficult thing. They are faceless enemy. Nuts, random names. Different countries somewhere. Fake to them, real in your life.”
  • “Like you know there is one room in your house, where people talk nasty things about you. When you are down, you start listening to the whispers.”
  • (If you attack) you are feeding it. You feel less powerful, like attacking your reflection in the water. You’ll look crazy. 

About working with the Safdie Brothers and Academy award

~ See Josh’s instagram vidoe below. I couldn’t transcibe properly“ LOL

Rob : “Just do what I did…bla bla bla bla. *quick hand movements*

  • “I am just so happy that people liked it (Good Time).”
  • “ I just knew something was going on.”
  • “That is how I always try to get jobs basically. No one is going to know your taste better than you.”

Rob said “I will forgive you (the trolls)”, if they watch Good Time over and over again.

>>>The full interview was 1 hour. Talking about his “relationship” 5 minutes. The bulk of it was Twilight, auditioning, Good Time etc.

Why you shouldn't google sociopaths.

What the fuck is this?! Just for “fun” I googled “do sociopaths feel emotion”, and I swear to god I should not have done that. Those are just some bits and pieces that were written on multiple sites:
•"Sociopaths don’t have feelings or emotions, nor do sociopaths cry genuinely. However, they do experience proto-emotions, primitive emotions that rear their ugly heads in moments of perceived need.“
•"Do sociopaths have feelings? Beyond primitive emotions like anger and rage, sociopaths don’t have feelings.”
•"They cannot truly be depressed, or anxious, or stressed. Many sociopaths use anxiety and depression as pity plays. They are not actually experiencing these conditions; they are only pretending. For example, the sociopath I survived pretended to be “anxious” and “depressed” near the end of our encounter.“

People with aspd are not emotionless robots, I struggled with depression (because of an eating disorder) for 2 years and it was horrible. And yes, i do manipulate, but I don’t hurt somebody unless I have a good reason for it. “Ugly heads”, “primitive emotions”? FU I have to live with myself everyday, while you enjoy being happy looking at a stupid sunset.
But the thing is, i work on myself everyday, hide my aggression and genuinely act nice, while those NTs act like total assholes towards other NTs and sociopaths alike.
