How to Tell if Somebody is fandom!old

- They use terms like lemons, smut, or UST to talk about the genre of their fic.

- They have squicks.

- They want you to have squicks. Which isn’t to say that they want to squick you, just that it’s a useful term.

- *glomps*

- They leave long comments on everything the read. Possibly not in the tags. They might do something super bizarre like send a message or put their thoughts on the end of your post.

- They write disclaimers on everything. Or on literally anything, since nobody does that anymore.

- They write about orbs, and those orbs are cerulean.

- Or literally anything else is cerulean. Cerulean is an outdated term. I’m calling it.

- The tongues of their characters are still battling for dominance, even though it’s 2017, and really a winner should have been declared by now.

- They have a fear of Mary Sue.

- Characters in their modern AU are chatting on AIM instant messenger, and calling each other on landlines. There are references to Ceiling Cat, because the characters are hip to meme culture. This AU is ~modern~ after all.

- Their fic is interlaced with slightly relevant song lyrics (disclaimer, they didn’t write the song.)

- They don’t do any of above, because they are New Fandom Savy, but they write or reblog nostalgic posts about these things.

- They had a livejournal.

- They still have a livejournal.

- They ended up on tumblr only after getting into a new fandom, searching livejournal for content and fellow fans, and suddenly coming to the startling realization that livejournal has become a barren wasteland of tumbleweeds and chirping crickets.

- They miss their geocities site.

- They wrote fic for the X-Files while the original nine seasons were still airing.

- Bonus, they wrote fic for the original Star Trek and published it in a zine, before the Internet was a thing. That’s like super mega fandom old.

- They might be less inclined to call themselves “trash”, but they are totally out there, reading all the things.

Have a celebratory after sports fest TodoDeku!!

There Are Now 2 LGBT Characters On Disney

In case you missed it, last friday, June 23rd, was a huge night for LGBT representation. Two shows currently airing on Disney Channel, one in the UK and one in the US, featured scenes with characters revealed as LGBT. Josh played by Joshua Sinclair-Evans on The Lodge and Cyrus Goodman played by Joshua Rush on Andi Mack.  Spoilers for the shows and my thoughts below.

On The Lodge Josh is talking to a friend and when the conversation turns to girls, well one girl in particular, Josh casually states that she’s not his type and then clarifies later that he’s not interested in any girls because “girls aren’t really my type.”  It was refreshing to see him come out in such a casual way.  I must admit I’ve never seen The Lodge before so I don’t know too much about his character or the show but I’m certainly going to be checking it out.

On Andi Mack we’ve seen Cyrus interacting with his friend Jonah for a whole season and it seemed obvious that he’s had a crush on him. We also knew from an article in the New York Times that there would be a story line involving a boy coming to terms with his sexuality. Unlike The Lodge, Cyrus hasn’t said out loud who he is interested in yet but with a very simple action our suspicions were confirmed.  In the finale, while Jonah was talking with Amber about Andi she said “if she turns to look back at you it means that she likes you and not just as a friend.” Jonah leaves before he sees that Andi looks back and then a few seconds later so does Cyrus. Cyrus likes Jonah!  (There’s even a video of the cast watching this scene together and cheering ecstatically when Cyrus looks back.)  This was a very intentional moment and I appreciate how they executed this scene.  Andi looks back and that clearly implies that she likes Jonah it makes sense she’s the lead of the show, she’s said many times that she likes him, the viewer easily accepts that she looked back because she likes him.  Then we see Cyrus do the exact same thing are we supposed to come to a different conclusion because he’s a boy and looked back.  Absolutely not. The show has already been renewed so this story line will continue and develop next season.

I’m really happy to see Disney taking these steps to bring representation to their network. Everyone who watches Disney needs role models and characters they can relate to and that’s been lacking for a long time!  If you aren’t watching already I’d recommend you check them out and spread the word so these shows can stay on the air!

I made fake posters for a hypothetical animated series on the life of Hypatia of Alexandria like I would pay to have this made but my hands ache from doing these so no chance of that ever happening. Tagline is from Anne Carson’s translations of Sappho.Exam board please don’t sue me for posting these.

Can we all just agree that it doesn’t matter whether you ship Drarry for the fluff or the angst because however you see them and read them and write them or draw them is valid and important.

You don’t have to explain or justify what you want or how you ship them. No one genre or trope or way of writing them or drawing them or enjoying them is more meaningful or more right than another one.

And that no matter what dynamic or kink or tropes you love, in the end we’re all here for Harry and Draco.

sooo thanks to reading heartstrings by @taylordraws i was up til 3am doodling this garbage. god help my lost soul.

also i’d been talking to @littleblackchat all day about it and she was designing up what she imagined Mari’s dress from chapter 3 looked like, and I doodled this version based on her descriptions and early doodles of it xD so it’s a little different from the one she posted. Also I pointed out that the keyhole in the dress was perfect for Adrien in that scene, since he put his hand there and gyid7573943778hsjdfj IMAGINE IT GUYS imagine it

Why haven’t we talked more about Kevin Price’s anxiety?

Like, in every iteration of the musical…that seems to remains constant no matter who plays him?? He seems to holds himself so tensely, makes a considerable amount to always try and be perfectly presentable, and has a lot of nervous niches such as: fixing his hair, clutching his pant legs when sitting, plastering on fake smiles, hunching in on himself, murmuring assurances to himself and having a fear/discomfort of physical contact. 

Someone help this boy??? I wish I could see this more prevalent in fics and stuff.

Mischief (Loki story)

PART 1/5

Originally posted by luxury-loki

Summary: The reader is a mischievous girl who tends to do what she wants, regardless of consequences. But after too much mischief, she gets caught and meets the God of Mischief himself.

PART 2

A/N: listen my buddy, my friends, I somehow know where I’m going with this, and I also don’t. Anyhow, I hope you will like this first part, I am planning more (if it’s alright). I don’t respect the MCU timeline, so Peter’s included, Bucky’s included, the Ultron debacle never happened, Pietro Maximoff is breathing, and Civil War whom?  

Warnings/content: Nothing to be alarmed off, except maybe mild swearing, it’s a lot Avengers x reader in this part and will turn more Loki x Reader later, with a tad bit of Bucky x reader friendship!
