Hogwarts Dating

Enjoltaire Edition

  • Muggleborn Grantaire trying every iconic and cheesy muggle pick-up line on Pur Blood Enjolras who’s ever heard them
  • Enjolras snuggling into Grantaire’s Ravenclaw scarf in winter and not giving it back until late spring
  • Quidditch commentator R who never fails to points out how fabulous Enjolras’ butt looks on that “new” broom he got two years ago before someone take the mic away from him
  • They got their first detention together when Grantaire got punished for doodling in class:
    • “Mr. Grantaire, since you’re so manual you’ll polish everything in the Trophy Room.”
    • “My hands are so good at polishing stuff, sir.”
    • Enjolras snorted so loud he got detention as well
  • Grantaire once sent Enjolras a musical card for his birthday and Enjolras was very confused because??? There isn’t??? Magic involved???
  • Enjolras spending a couple of weeks at Grantaire’s in the summer and Grantaire introduces him to muggle rock and all the bands he grew up with. Enjolras looking at static pictures of baby Grantaire with a fond smile
  • Enjolras couldn’t figure out what his amortencia smelt like until he held Grantaire close for the first time and made the connection
  • Grantaire’s cat loves Enjolras so much he’ll sometimes spend the Slytherin dormitory, sturting all the way to Enjolras’ bed with a doodle stuck in his collar

I don’t understand where this fandom mentality comes from that everyone has to like all the characters within a book/series/movie? And people start fighting you if you don’t like one character to the same extent as they do?

Like, be happy that people enjoy their favourite character (or ship). That they are so inspired by them that they write fanfic, draw fanart or develop headcanons for them. They share their love and you can do the same with your favourite characters - that’s the point of fandom.

But attacking other fans because they don’t include every single character for reasons that they are entirely their own? It doesn’t matter if you agree or not. Everyone has preferences and they are allowed to have them.

Seriously, since “Winter” was released, this fandom has become a minefield.
And I don’t mean that the character of Winter changed it, but it’s the tone of the discussions. It’s not so much about respectful, informative discussions anymore. It’s gotten nasty with a few people insulting and bullying other fans for their preferences with a self-righteousness that is seriously uncalled for.

Because now, if you don’t include a certain character, you are called out for whatever inane reason. I once got the question once why I didn’t include a certain ship for a story idea I had. Why is that any of their concern? It’s my story idea, either you like it or not but I’m not playing character bingo and include everyone just because the fandom thinks I have to because they are in the original story. That’s what fanfic is for, to expand on the characters you love, maybe all of them or just one of them, but that isn’t anyone’s business. If I see a story tagged with Character X, I’m not asking the author, “hey, where’s Character Y?” That story isn’t for me, so I move on to stories that are.

Because here’s the thing: No one owes you anything.

No one has to write a fic you enjoy.

No one has to draw a fanart that you can reblog.

No one has to spend their time of the day on characters they don’t like just because they feel pressured to do so.

But: Everyone deserves respect. Or, at least, just because someone has a different opinion, it doesn’t give you the right to insult them. Opinions are not facts.

You don’t have to agree with someone but it’s not too much to ask to treat them with a minimum of respect. Especially over something as personal and random as favourite characters/ships.

For next year, I do hope we leave this kind of mentality behind us, so people can resume creating content they enjoy for people who appreciate it, without being attacked for not doing it as some people might see fit. I’m not naive, I know there will always be drama and shipper wars or whatever. But this year, it was no fun being in the TLC fandom. And I say this especially in regard to the TLC shipweeks.

The creators of shipweeks are putting a lot of effort into it. The fans are putting a lot of effort into their work, too. So, if you are not happy that your character/ship/brotp isn’t as included as much as you would like, create your own content. Spread the love. But respect other people’s choices.

And for every other fan: Just have lots of fun with TLC, with your favourite characters and ships and don’t let anyone tell you that you aren’t allowed to.

Why yes I did spend the entire Saturday Drawing Aizawas.
His man bun in the latest chapter though… I thought he might be a character who covers their face with their hair no matter what but he actually sees the effort to look nice for the parents. uvu

I love this because a) Jensen crashed Misha and Sebastian’s panel by jumping in line for questions and using some ridiculous accent. Back then, that is NOT something Jensen would just casually do. And yet he does because b) he can tell that Misha was getting to the end of his patience. Whereas with Jensen or even Jared, Misha is always screwing around, having a good time, cracking jokes, etc. etc., with Sebastian, he lost his spark towards the end. Which leads me to c) Jensen is so in tune with Misha that he knew he need to rescue his friend, so he goes outside his comfort zone, does something reminiscent of Misha, and then when he comes on stage (after this adorably relieved but casual hug) Jensen takes MISHA’S mic. He knows that Misha just needs a break so he takes over interacting with Sebastian and the fans and lets Misha just chill.

(Also look at how happy Misha looks to see Jensen. I mean that smile is glowing)

Yo one of the most amazing things to me about seeing SHINee live was being able to see just how HARD Taemin goes when he dances. I legit thought the boy was going to break his ankle or something bc of the amount of power and passion he dances with. Truly incredible.
