I've never heard of you until I saw all these nice people telling off the bad anons who are selfish enough to curse at you for not posting spoilers. I just want to say ignore them and that it's a fantastic choice of you not posting anymore FT spoilers to let the dumb anons know they just lost a great part of their FT fandom family! With best regards I hope you're okay! Have a nice day 💕
❗❗ Hey, please DO NOT buy from Milkybread’s online store. (twitter: @milkybreads_ , tumblr: milkybreads ) Their most recent product is a set of haikyuu acrylic stands, and the Bokuto one in particular was blatantly traced from another artist’s work. Most of their drawings were in fact traced from works of other artists, including oldxian, gusari, etc… They have been copying for over a year and the line was crossed when they started MAKING PROFIT from something that was TRACED. When someone direct messages them to stop copying, they brush it off with excuses that their style is just “
mixes of other artists [they] adore too…” Clearly their drawings are traced and they don’t even remove them.
It is really upsetting to see someone with over 4k+ followers on twitter and tumblr get away with tracing art.
So like with any other fandom, there are ships that some
people love and some people hate, for many reasons. It’s fine to dislike or
even be disgusted by some ships, but please do not go out of your way to tell artists your negative opinions!
If you would feel disappointed seeing one of your favorite artists drawing
content you don’t agree with, keep it to yourself and silently unfollow if it
makes you uncomfortable enough.
“But I feel strongly
about the content they are drawing and it’s just.. wrong!”
So what? They are drawing for themselves and not for you.
These artists aren’t going around and pushing their views on others. They are
merely posting to share with those who would enjoy. Note that most of these
artists have disclaimers on their blogs and tag properly to ensure only the
appropriate audiences will come across it. If they are tagging improperly, just
let them know calmly like “Oh sorry to bother you but just letting you know any
NSFW undertale content should not be tagged as undertale, but as undertail
You can’t help what you like and dislike, and that’s okay.
Heck, even the artists themselves might have had a hard time accepting that
they like what they like (trust me on this one). Attacking them does absolutely
nothing positive and makes them feel awful for doing nothing wrong. Remember
that these are fictional characters and what people may enjoy in fanworks does
not reflect what they approve of in real life.
if you don’t like something an artist creates, don’t
follow and don’t bash.
Sometimes, when people do things that hurt you, it’s a good idea to tell them off and assert forcefully that what they did was not ok. The point of this is not to hurt them or to get emotional satisfaction from expressing anger; the point is about making them stop.
Here are some things I think I know about what sometimes works:
Be specific. Tell them exactly what they did wrong, why it was wrong, and what they ought to have done.
Tell them what would solve the problem.
Don’t use obscene or personally insulting remarks. For instance, it’s usually inadvisable to say things like “Are you fucking kidding me?” or “Doing that is effectively giving me the finger”. It’s better to say things like “When you do that, it makes it impossible for me and others to participate. That’s not ok”.
Don’t talk about your feelings and don’t allow the person you’re telling off to turn it into a discussion about your feelings. Making it about feelings causes a power shift, and it gives the person an opening to make it a personal or therapeutic encounter. This is not the time to talk about feelings or use I-statements; it’s the time to talk about the specific thing that person is doing and why it’s a problem.
If you’re able to make eye contact, it’s useful to do so in this situation. Not making eye contact in this situation is likely to be perceived as you being ashamed, intimidated, or submissive. Making eye contact is likely to be perceived as you being willing to stand your ground.
This is not about consensual interaction. You don’t need someone’s permission to say no, or to tell them that they are hurting you. (It can be hard to learn to understand the differences between these situations, but it’s really important to be aware that they both exist)
Behind the Scenes of The Fires of Pompeii (Part Two)
From the DVD Commentary with David Tennant, Catherine Tate, and Tracie Simpson
David Tennant: It was very jolly for everyone to be away together, because usually we’re in Cardiff most of the time - Swansea is about as far as we get usually, so we very rarely are all away together as a company. It was great, wasn’t it?
Tracie Simpson: My happiest block. As you say, being able to go out, in Rome. We organized a bus, didn’t we - a school trip?
David: We all descended on a very nice restaurant in central Rome.
Tracie: It seemed very nice.
David: It seemed very nice at the start of the meal.
Catherine Tate: It seemed rodent free at the start of the meal.
David: It seemed without pestilence.
Catherine: It did!
David: But, turns out…
Catherine: Turns out… there’s a few little Mickeys running around.
David: There were! But the best bit of that for me was seeing our inscrutable, unflappable producer, Phil Collinson, standing on a chair, screaming like a four year old girl as a mouse ran under his chair!
Tracie: It was a rat, David.
David: It was a mouse, Trace!
Catherine: Was it really?
Louise: It was a rat.
David: C’mon! I’ve got a photograph of it. I took a photograph of it - it was a mouse.
Louise: It was a rat.
David: It was a big mouse. It wasn’t a rat. Rats are big, fat things with long, nasty tails. It was just a wee mouse.
Catherine: Either way it’s going to put you off your tortellini.
David: Yeah. Then all the staff came out, fairly unperturbed by the whole happening, and started battering it with brooms… which didn’t kill it! It lived on.
Catherine: They swept it up in the end, didn’t they?
David: Yeah, eventually they did get rid of it, but not before Phil was on the ceiling.
