“You’ll be godfather?” he said, as he released Harry. “M-me?” stammered Harry. “You, yes, of course… Dora quite agrees, no one better…” “I - yeah - blimey -” Harry felt overwhelmed, astonished, delighted. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

I’m going to start by swearing this isn’t me just complaining but a general resource for the Yuri on Ice fandom because I’ve noticed some mistakes in the naming conventions used among the fandom and want to help correct them. Especially in how the fandom treats diminutives. I absolutely love seeing the huge amount of interest in Russian diminutives, etc. in fanart and fics and hopefully this breakdown will help continue that trend and interest and even spur some more ideas in fandom content.
So let’s go through some important details below the cut!
Dear VLD fandom, SDCC is coming up which means do not, I repeat, DO NOT BOTHER THE CREW WITH FANDOM BS. This includes asking about ships, age discourse, AUs or any other fandom bs. This fandom has become so absorbed in fanon, that they forget what this show is even about and forget that the people behind it are real people with emotions and feelings.
These people are the backbone of this show and the people who bring it to life. Give them the thanks that they deserve. Ask them about the show and plot points. Ask about more info on a character or how the team will grow. Hints to future plot points, stuff like that. Don’t ask them questions just to prove or disprove some stupid fandom drama. Not only is it pretty disrespectful, but it’s highkey embarrassing. Just…don’t do it.
