the life and times of a fan girl

having a gay otp doesn’t make you a lgbtq+ supporter

reading a lot of gay fan fiction doesn’t make you a lgbtq+ supporter

i once knew a girl who spent most of her free time reading gay smut, but she was extremely uncomfortable any time she had to interact with a lesbian because she was afraid they’d hit on her.

that’s not being a supporter. that’s fetishizing homosexuality. 

nobody cares if you ship destiel or johnlock or whatever, if you’re not okay with real life gay people, you’re still homophobic. it’s the same with guys who watch lesbian porn but don’t think that gay marriage should be legal. you can’t fetishize someone’s sexuality like that. that’s not okay and you are the worst kind of homophobe if you do. 

#SherlockLives: The Resurrection

The day is April 23rd, 2017.  It’s an ordinary Sunday afternoon in London.

The crowd bustles, trains whirr, birds chirp.

Life in the city is business as usual.

Three teenage girls take photographs outside 187 North Gower Street, soaking in the ambiance of the Sherlock set.  They step into Speedy’s for a cup of coffee.

The women lament over the loss of their favorite show. On March 8th, the BBC announced Sherlock would not be returning for a fifth series, and cowriters Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss were quick to assure their fans that it was time to lay the beloved program to rest.

But what the women saw next changed their lives forever.

I hope each and every exo-l out there knows how ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING it is to mock a person’s death if ANY of you think the “jokes” made about the BTS fansite master’s death is in anyway acceptable you are blocked and reported for being inhumane and a piece of shit. As of now, only troll accounts and a few “exo-ls” on twitter have been involved in this –but were quickly reported by other exo-ls and it better stay that way. Kpop is just kpop. A human life is not something ANYONE should EVER joke about, and anyone who does that isn’t considered a human, let alone a fan. 

Please reblog this and make sure that people know that in no way do exo-ls support this slander. May the girl rest in peace, and her family gain strength in these hard times.

One time in class this girl asked ‘what’s fanfiction?’ and me, being the fanfiction expert I am decided to speak up. 'Read the hat fic. Then you’ll understand’ I said.

And that was how I managed to make my enTIRE FUCKING CLASS read the hat fic. I don’t think they see me as the 'sweet innocent smart one’ anymore.

things to remember about pokeshipping
  1. Misty’s feelings for Ash are genuine and are present in the original subs.
  2. The only girl Ash ever got jealous over was Misty.
  3. This jealousy was presented on at least three occasions and once nearly cost him his life/safety.
  4. Misty has saved Ash’s life multiple times.
  5. Other than a CotD, Misty is the only girl whose appearance has enamored Ash.
  6. And to add to that, Ash has not shown romantic interest in anyone to such a degree since the OS.
  7. Pokeshipping is the only Ash ship to be considered mutual on-screen, even without a confession.
  8. Ash and Misty’s friendship/crushes developed naturally over the course of time that fans can account for. They are friends with crushes, not romantic interests.
  9. Misty’s unique cheering tactic has caused Ash to win a gym battle.
  10. Misty has referred to Ash as her burden, or else claimed that he’s never alone because he’ll always have her.
  11. Multiple third parties have claimed that there’s something romantic between them. Not just one, not two, not three either, but many.
  12. Misty’s feelings for Ash have been shown to endure beyond her leaving as a main cast member.
  13. Ash promised Misty that they would meet again, and they have on multiple occasions.
  14. Also it’s stated in canon that Ash talks about Misty a lot to his AG friends, May and Max, possibly the only character to receive such gratification (or else, one of the only few).
  15. Misty’s momentos/gifts were seen in more than one of the follow-up series/sagas. Brock’s were not.
  16. Misty is the only character whose goodbye propelled Ash into tears or sadness.
  17. Ash is shown to be so protective of the lure Misty sent him that he won’t even let another friend hold it.
  18. Misty is exclusively chosen many times to pursue Ash when he is worried or upset.
  19. Misty has also been used to deflate Ash’s ego or point him in the right direction when he’s in the wrong, even if such tactics seem severe.

I think I’ll stop here. Feel free to either add more or else send me an ask and I’ll edit the list for you! For those who have doubts, feel free to ask for proof. I certainly don’t mind giving it!

i wanted to draw My Girls one last time before it ends… homestuck was certainly. an experience. that i think i learned a lot from. 

i got into homestuck when i was like 15 (i am currently 20) and it certainly influenced me a lot during a formative time in my life, lmao. its weird but i feel like homestuck definitely contributed to who i am today and where my art is today.

this was a pretty quick doodle but i really do appreciate the experience as a whole, as weird or as bad as it might have been at times. 

Imagine Watching A Year In The Life with Jared

Originally posted by itsokaysammy

You curled up on the couch, watching your husband walk towards you with two beers in his hands.

Jared took a seat next to you, handing you a bottle and making himself comfortable, before turning Netflix on.

“You ready?” He asked you, giving you that smirk that made your legs tremble.

“I’ve been ready for almost 10 years,” you replied, making him laugh as he pressed on ‘Gilmore Girls, A Year in the Life.’

You’d always been a fan of the series, even before meeting Jared. Luckily you didn’t freak out when you met him, since he had changed a bit between Dean’s last appearance on the show and your encounter.

When Jared appeared on the scene, you squealed.

“Wha-” our husband began before you shushed him, staring at the screen like a little kid.

You felt Jared’s eyes on you the whole time he was on the screen. It wasn’t until Dean said ‘pay for it this time’ and left Doose’s Market that you turned to see your husband, watching him expecting a reaction.

“So?” He asked before you paused the show and leaned over to kiss him tenderly on the lips.

Pulling away, you replied, “I loved it. You were great, and I love to see Dean finally happy with a wife and kids.”

“Thanks, honey,” he smiled, kissing you again.

“Can I tell everyone I’m married to Dean Forester then?” You joked, turning to sit on his lap, his hand drawing circles on our lower back.

“Yeah, I guess. We’re missing a couple of kids, though.” He replied, almost giving you a cue.

“Oh, well, about that…”

Jared’s eyes moved from the TV to you, hope in his eyes and patiently waiting for your next words.

“I’m pregnant.”

There are times when i think I’ve been a weak, people-pleasing little mouse my whole life. That’s what I am learning right now, that I have to become stronger in this industry. I’ve learned over the past year that you don’t have time to chase after every people who doesn’t understand you. The people that know me know that I’m a nice girl. My fans know I’m a nice girl. My friends know that I’m a nice girl. And ultimately, that’s all that matters.

The other day I was thinking about how whenever I see Annabeth online, she always has this serious, ‘i can kill you in my sleep’ expression which is understandable since she can be freaking terrifying if she needs to. But what about the moments when she’s not fighting for her life or concerned for Percy’s well-being? What about the times when she’s with her friends and family making happy memories of what about the times when she’s studying or indulging herself in a new book? I’d like to think she’d being smiling in those times– maybe even laughing with joy. I’d like to see more of that Annabeth, so this is just my contribution to that idea.

Its the end of an era. Im thankful for the past 4 years. Im thankful because i saw 5 incredible girls become adults. Im thankful because now i have so many amazing people in my life (my best friends, sisters…) thanks to Fifth Harmony.
Im not shocked because i was expecting this but im still sad. Im a fan since 2012, i went to so many shows, so many meet and greets and i always supported them. Its natural to be sad…
im just thankful for everything and i’m glad to have lived in a time where Fifth Harmony was the biggest girl group of the decade. Im gonna support the girls and Camila no matter what.

I cant wait to hear CC1 and 5H3. I love new beginnings and this one was necessary for both parts. Te amo!!

Seventeen when you’re getting hate from fans.

Seungcheol:
When he hears your silent crying coming from the bedroom, he would immediately know what has happened and come in to comfort you. He’d sit down on the bed next to you and wrap his arm around your body, holding you tight, telling you all the reasons why you shouldn’t listen to them.

“Don’t make yourself feel less just because fans can’t see all your beauty. They’re so blinded by the beauty they can see, that they’re just not able to see the rest.”

Mingyu:
He would be most dissapointed in the fans for making the only person he cares about feel so little about themselves. He’d have a hard time forgetting about it once he’s seen you crying over it. He would openly talk to his fans about the mistakes they’ve made.

“With what you’ve said, you’ve not only hurt the only girl in my life but me as well.”

Wonwoo:
After you tell him about the incidents, he’d try to keep his anger for himself to not make yourself feel any worse. He’d purposely want to spend more time with you to show his fans how serious he is with you and that he won’t change his love for you no matter what.

Vernon:
He’d be very focused on you and that things don’t get to you too much. He would suggest you to take a break from SNS for a while and to focus on him instead.

“Y/N…this relationship is between you and me. Let’s not listen to what people say.”

Woozi:
He’d comfort you in silence and listen to everything they’ve said about you. He’d feel his heart break by the thought of his fans talking so negatively about his girlfriend and would have a hard time accepting it because it’s not even a joke anymore but straight up racism. 
He’d immediately do a V-live when he feels ready and confront them about their mistakes.

“I don’t think you’re in the position to decide who I should spend my life with. Only because it won’t be you, doesn’t mean you can harrass the person who gets to~”

Joshua 
He’d try to ignore their hateful comments because he knows they won’t change his love for you but once he sees how much it’s hurting you, he wouldn’t be able to just watch any longer and would want to talk to you about their comments and how little they should mean to you.

“Did you know that I find you the most beautiful and that their jealous actions should never stop you from loving yourself?”

Jeonghan:
He’d keep his anger inside while he tries to comfort you and just hugs you to his body tightly. He wouldn’t be able to believe that his fans don’t support his girlfriend and adore her as much as he does but wouldn’t want to cause any more trouble and try to get you to ignore them.

“All these words are words of jealousy and envy. When they see what they’re causing with their words, that envy will turn into grief and grief will kill them eventually.”

Dokyeom:
When he sees your crying, he wouldn’t be able to know how to react and just try to cheer you up by being his usual self and seeing the positive instead.

“Don’t you think that their hateful comments are just a proof that I got the most beautiful girlfriend by my side they can never compete with?”

Seungkwan:
Instead of getting angry or frustrated, he’d just read through their hateful comments in silence and nod whenever he sees something rude towards your looks.

When he’s done, he’d just look up at you with wide eyes, smiling at you gently to show you that he cares. “People who leave these type of comments are honestly the most ugly. Don’t put yourself to their niveau.”

Hoshi:
He would feel bad about introducing you to carats so early into your relationship and would put himself at fault for you getting hate. Instead of showing you how he feels about the situation, he’d try to confort you.

“Please don’t listen to what they have to say. To me, you’re the most magnificent human being and there are no words that could change that.”

Jun:
After getting you to stop crying, he’d have you read out all the rude things you’ve read about yourself online and his eyes would wander up and down your body carefully as you speak.

When you’re done and feeling tears starting to prickle your eyes again, Jun gently lifts up your head and smiles at you confidently. “Whatever flaws they were pointing out…I couldn’t find any of them. Don’t try to find something that doesn’t exist just because people are jealous of you.”

Minghao:
When he first introduced you to carat’s he didn’t think anything bad of it but as time passes and he finds more hateful comments all over SNS, he’d start to feel really confused about it.

When he finds you crying at night, he’d pull you into his shaking arms and just apologize to you for putting you into this position. When you two calmed down, you’d stare at each other and he’d smile at you gently. “Wow, jealousy can turn people into something I thought our carats would never be.”

Dino:
When you finally admit the hate you’ve been getting, he wouldn’t be able to respond to you and just stare at your bloodshot eyes. A lot of thoughts would run through his mind and he’d have trouble coming clear with the hate his girlfriend has been getting.

He’d let himself fall down on the bed next to you and pull you into his arms, stroking your back gently. “I’m sorry for putting you into a situation like this. I love you.”


Love, Youngmi~

That’s a pretty big number. 

I once posted about how many followers I had or something and got a lovely anon telling me to stop posting about that because nobody cared. Something along those lines. So ever since then I haven’t posted about my followers. But last week was not only my 2 year anniversary aboard this silly ship but I also hit 3k. And now it is, or was, Thanksgiving here in the US; a time to be thankful. It’s been a really rough like 7-12 months in this fandom - both before and after Jess left - and, for me personally, a really rough month since the election. I wrote on Facebook that I was finding it hard to find things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving and I think the same could be applied to fandom life at the moment. It’s been pretty dreary. I certainly haven’t had the interest in fan girling about Sam & Cait or the show but there’s this one thing that keeps pulling me back in and that’s why I started this blog to begin with.

I started this blog because I loved Sam and Cait and Outlander. Being their fan gave me so much joy and happiness. I loved it all so much that I was for sure going to alienate my real life friends who followed me on here with all my OL/shipper posts and, to be honest, I probably started this blog just in time as I still have real life friends, PHEW. But in making this an all Outlander blog, I also found a new group of friends - all of you. All 3,056 of you. Even the spambots. kidding! So I do have something to be thankful for, even in this dumpster fire of a fandom and that’s shippers - whether or not I talk to you off tumblr, I consider you all friends. I’m so freaking glad and thankful I’m in this part of the fandom and not any other part. There’s so much love and joy to be had as shippers and I hope sooner rather than later I can bring some of that joy back to my blog. It’s been long enough! 

Anyway, I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving if you celebrated! And if not, I hope you did like my cab driver last night and ate lots of donuts. xoxox

The new interview where ASP remarks that people care too much about Rory’s boyfriends is really annoying me.

The entirety of Rory’s character development is reflected in her romantic life.  It’s not all who Rory is., but ASP chose to show her storylines that way.  In the one season where Rory is single, she spends it torn between Jess and Dean. There is never a time on Gilmore Girls, except at the very start, where Rory is single and comfortable with it.  I have a problem with ASP choosing to write Rory that way, but it’s a decision of the writers, not the fans, to see Rory in the context of her romantic life.  I also believe Rory associates breakups with personal failure, and holds onto relationships, but this is never explored in the series.

 I’d agree outside of that interview that people automatically focus on the romantic lives of female characters, in any kind of media, but ASP actively encouraged this with Rory.  I would like to see Rory being happily single in the revival, but it’s not anti-feminist to wish to see closure with her past boyfriends. Nor does it mean viewers aren’t interested in where Rory’s life is in terms of career or personal happiness. If ASP wishes for fans to care less about Rory’s partners, she should have dedicated less time to them being the crux of Rory’s character development.

Never underestimate a girl’s love for her favorite band. Never think even for a minute, that she won’t defend them to her death. Because it’s not just the music that makes that band her favorite. It’s the guys, the gals. It’s the fans. People whom of which she has interacted with thanks to the band. That band might of saved her life, or just made her smile everyday. That band has never broke her heart and has yet to leave her. No wonder she finds such joy in her music

Why I am Team Jess

Okay guys I desperately need to talk about why I will always be Team Jess!
I am a huge GG fan since the beginning and I watched the show at least 5 times and every time I fall in love with Jess all over again. After I heard about the revival I started to rewatch it (again) and by now I am so excited that I cannot think about anything else. And I thought I could handle it if Rory and Jess are not end game but right now? I think I am going to die if she ends up with anybody else.
The thing is, I could never quite understand why I was so obsessed with their relationship and how I always was Team Jess – no matter what. It actually really bugged me that I could never be Team Logan although he was a decent guy towards the end and of course because I want to enjoy the revival even when Rory ends up with Logan. But still… I think I will cry for the rest of my life if she’s not with Jess in the end. And after re-watching GG again I finally understood why Jess is the only one for me (and Rory).

On the one hand, it is because of Milo’s acting skills. They are simply stunning! It just hit me recently how mesmerized I am after watching him in season 4 & 6.
For instance, when he tells her that he loves her. You just SEE how sad and what an emotional wreck he actually is.

And when he tells her to run away with him? You just FEEL how desperately he wants to be with her and how everything he does is because of her – to finally be good enough for her. And I cry every damn time when I see his face after she says no:

You can see the same heart-breaking face in season 6 when she tells him she is in love with Logan. I mean seriously, he doesn’t even have to say anything, your heart just breaks because his face says it all… that he is still in love with her but cannot have her. 

His performance is just outstanding because he never had to say a word – his facial expressions showed you everything you needed to know about his feelings. ( I guess it is better if you remember these scenes because these screenshots are really terrible) 

On the other hand, it is because of their storyline. I guess that’s why I am such a mess when it comes to Rory and Jess because he never stopped loving her and no matter what happened or how much he was hurt at the end: he just wanted Rory to be happy. That is why I will always be Team Jess – because he loved her so much and put her happiness before his own. Not to mention that he never stopped trying to be good enough for her…
I mean, how can you not root for him? From the beginning all he ever wanted was to be with Rory and make her happy.
Maybe now a few people who are anti Jess will understand why so many of us are Team Jess…

So yeah… I guess you can now imagine what my breakdown will look like if Jess and Rory are not endgame…

P.S. I am sorry if there are some mistakes…  English is not my native language.


/Edit: Here we go again…  

I decide to leave to get my life together, and then casserole clam decides to crawl out of the whole she’s been in to try to come after Todd. I don’t care much for Todd, but the one good thing he has said, is that Simon will not be a two timing cheater on the show. And then miss copycat clare wants to come on Twitter and cry that the show is based off her books and that she hopes he’s not being disrespectful to her book fans. Girl have a fucking seat. (x)
