this is a great fandom and a really awesome show

in all honesty, im super excited for season 3, especially sharing the experience with the fandom and my friends. when s2 came out the vibe and atmosphere was really nice, everyone hype-screaming & bonding over the show. it felt real nice to see the fandom happy and joking and im super pumped to go through it again during this season and more to come

Hannibal Fandom

ok can i just make an appreciation post for the hannibal fandom?

Almost every single person in it is great. They are collectively enthusiastic and welcoming. You will see a person post that they’re just now starting to watch the show and 20 different people will be there welcoming them to the fandom and being just over all super friendly and inviting.

Plus the network for sharing fics and art is just really awesome. I can’t count the number of times I’ve made a post asking for fic recs and had a number of people boosting it until I had an inbox full of suggestions, which isn’t something I’ve experienced before. (not to mention the quality of the art and writing. it’s consistently well done across the board, and some of the best fics i’ve ever read are hannibal)

I’ve had my experiences with toxic fandoms (I don’t even need to name it. We all know) and I basically never wanted to be in one again but man. The Hannibal fandom is just so lovely

We really got lucky with Captain Swan guys...

Like lemme list

- Amazing development

-Amazing chemistry

-Amazing slow-burn

-Best couple on the show with great screen time.

-Two incredible actors

-Who just so happen to be amazingly attractive

-Who LOVE the storyline and want the characters to be together as much as we do!!

-The writers favourite couple to write, who give us amazing scenes and storylines.

-Our amazing fandom filled with incredibly talented and just plain awesome people! 

Like Do you guy so realise how RARE this is? 

Like i ship other couples from other shows and on those show she either the actors hate the ship or the writers do or there’s always something going wrong. But captain swan is perfect you guys. It’s the ultimate ultimate fandom, the ultimate ship. OTP FOR LIFE! WE’RE SO LUCKY!!!!! 🍀⚓️🌹🥇🏆❤️💝

@people who draw Astro Boy fan art but don’t interact much with the fandom:

Please. There’s like 20 of us. I need more friends.

(But really though, you guys are great artists and clearly have some interest in Astro and most likely have seen one of the shows. We’re super friendly and wouldn’t mind some more awesome people to talk headcanons with. ;D )

I wanna take a moment to thank you guys for fighting so hard, not giving up and keeping me sane after the cancellation. I’m so glad I don’t have to go through this alone. It really helps me a lot to see all the tweets, the comments, the videos and the pictures and I think you guys feel the same. It feels good to know we’re in this together. It has always been a great and friendly fandom, but the cancellation showed me how truly awesome it is. People from all around the world working together, fighting for what they believe in, overcoming fears (people calling Netflix despite their anxiety e. g.), you can be so proud of yourselves.

So, again, thank you guys and keep fighting!

Voltron Positivity Blog Recs

I’ve been excitedly anticipating @stargazershiro​‘s wonderful Voltron Positivity Day, because I love telling people how awesome they are, even if I don’t know them that well. So! Thank you, Amy, for giving me the perfect opportunity to shower praise on some of the great people in this fandom! These aren’t really in any particular order, nor is this list comprehensive of the sheer amount of great people in this fandom.

  • @stargazershiro- Obviously, Amy is the first on this list cause beyond being the reason for this lovely day, she is a wonderful star of a person. I’m pretty sure she’s descended from actual angels, like honestly. So sweet, a total goof, a very talented writer and edit maker, and just all around wonderful person. 11/10 would follow again.
  • @ace-pidge - Sarah’s is one of my favorite blogs, tbh. She always posts quality content and is just a really great person. When the fandom gets very Yikes™, her blog always helps to remind me why it is I love this show so much. She also runs @quiznakchronicle​, which is just amazing, I don’t know how she does it, but I’m always so grateful. If you aren’t already following her, then you should definitely go and hit that follow button, I promise you won’t regret it!
  • @officiallysheith​ - Jehaaaaaaaaaan. Gifted. Talented. Amazing. Seriously, go check out their art. BUT ALSO, JJ is an awesome person, beyond their awesome art. I’ve enjoyed many of our conversations over on Discord, and I also just love following their blog for the content. JJ deserves much love, so go and give it to them.
  • @shieth - Ryan!!! I miss you!!! We haven’t talked in a while, and I’m honestly missing it cause you’re just such a great guy. A quality blog by a quality guy. Ryan is just a really awesome guy that I really love following and chatting with. Also, a fellow Allurance lover, there is never enough Allurance, tbh. Also also, as his url suggests, he posts quality sheith content, too. Go and follow Ryan!!
  • @hello-my-stars - Can you say gorgeous art? Cause WOW. Also supplies me with that quality Galra content I need. Especially Zarkon and Kolivan, I love those two and love how he draws them. He’s such a talented dude, and also a really rad person. He also once made me a list of Hunk headcanons?? For no other reason than he’s amazing??? #Blessed. If you aren’t following him, you’re really missing out, lemme tell you.
  • @bosstoaster- I’m gonna repeat tipsy me’s sentiment here, cause I stand by it. Boss is a Magic Writer Wonder Woman. How does she write so much Quality Content™? Cause she’s just that good. I also love all her headcanons and just chatting with her cause she’s such a rad person. She’s also the author of my all-time favorite Shunk fic All About that Space, and a bunch of other really awesome fics. Like I said, Magic Writer Wonder Woman.
  • @fenrhitriestodraw- Idk how I came to be so #blessed, but they have drawn several things based on my posts/tags??? For no other reason than I suspect they’re an actual angel??? #giveshiroacapybara2k17 and some quality kolivunk content. They’ve also made other really cute art!
  • @cryopods​ -  Makes truly amazing edits, like WOW. They also make awesome icons and is all-around a really great blog. I really enjoy all the stuff they post!
  • @kcgane - A blessing to this fandom, tbh. Makes some of the BEST fandom-inspired music ever, I’m honestly blown away every time they post something new. Also just a quality person and blog, in general, beyond their astounding talent.
  • @planced - Makes great edits, and also is probably the main reason I love Plance so much now. I don’t really know you, but you seem like a cool person and I dig your blog a lot!
  • @aradiiaa - Angie!! A wonderfully talented person, and also just super sweet and fun to chat with!! She deserves tons of love and appreciation!!!
  • This is hardly all the awesome people in this fandom, or even that I follow, so know that there are sooooo many amazing people in this fandom, so much talent and enthusiasm and it’s honestly all of you that keep me here when things get Yikes™, cause y’all remind me of what I love about this show and this fandom. I’ve had a really great time in this fandom, and have (obviously) met some really rad people, and I’m just really glad that I’ve had the opportunity to get to know some of you and see some of the amazing content y’all create. I hope all y’all have a really awesome day!!!
Some of the Great Things About the DEH Fandom

A lot of people say the Dear Evan Hansen fandom is insane? But it’s not?

1. Every time you go on, there’s another new theme. Whether it be a swing playing a character, an actor’s or actresses’s birthday, Ben Platt’s tweets, there’s always something new to see. You have to stay on your toes if you want to know what’s going on.

2. I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I really like when people talk about what happened when they went to the show. Everybody sounds so excited and amazed and it’s awesome? There is no way on Earth I’m going to be able to see the original cast so I just think it’s really sweet.

3. THE👏FANART👏IS👏AMAZING👏. I love it so much. There’s so many amazing artists and everybody is really funny and sweet? Also @somebody-1 has super awesome fanart.

4. The fanfics and headcannons are really sweet. I don’t know why I needed Evan Hansen as Spider-Man but I guess I did.

Call out post to the amazing fandom that lives on Tumblr. You keep it up.

man i hate those people that are so angry and adamant about bringing jonnor back. gavin is gone, jonnor is over.

now how about you:

1. hop on the coconut fucking telegraph with the rest of us civilized people and enjoy the beauty that is joah. 

2. if 1 is too hard, just keep your mouth shut and like turn off the tv when their scenes come on if it really upsets you that much.

3. if you fail steps 1 and 2, just stop watching the show, boycott it, whatever. we don’t need your salty ass screwing up the vibes of this awesome fandom anyways.

long live jonnor’s memory, and to many great new moments with joah! :)

Shoutout to sin mom @bullysquadess for being so supportive and cool????? Like I’ve talked to her on Snapchat a little and she’s so cool and awesome to talk to. I know that there was so much drama over her or whatever (this fandom needs to just stop with drama like guys it’s a show stop) but I don’t really care about that and think that she’s just one of the nicest people I’ve talked to. She also has some sweet cooking hacks 👍🏻

SHOUT OUT

I get it I do this way to much it gets boring, oh look another note from em-ori great. But I’m really trying to spread positivity in this fandom, this fandom can be negative at times and I really like being in this fandom the 100 is one of my favourite shows and now I’m in the fandom, so yes I’ll do as many shout outs as possible because i want to let everyone in this fandom know that you guys all slay! You guys are really cool. And weather or not you get hate anons don’t listen to them, your blog is awesome and you deserve to blog about what you like in peace, SO EVERYONE EVEN IF I DON’T TAG YOU because i can’t tag everyone everyone. BUT NONETHELESS YOU ARE AWESOME YOU SLAY! KEEP SLAYING. 🐝

Wow

I went to just watch ohm’s livestream for a bit and immediately see like people spamming about him and Bryce

You guys are really really great :))

Just goes to show how “awesome” half of the BBS fandom is

youtube

It’s been a while since I’ve been active here - but today I bumped into this again and your smiles in all of the pictures made me cry. We did such a great thing with Rainbow Direction. Please go to @takemehomefromnarnia and sign up for any of the solo shows that you care most about. I will go to Harry’s show in Paris on the 13th of March next year with @t-from-paris and I am so looking forward to it, but not as much as I am looking forward to helping @dieinthewinter liveblog from all of the solo shows before that time - seeing your smiles and rainbows has been the best thing to happen in my life in recent years, and I can’t wait to see them again. Thank you so much to every single one of you who has been part of this journey - those who are still on it, those who have left for whatever reason they had - I haven’t forgotten about you, you are still on my mind and in my heart -  never forget: rainbows rule! 

fitzsimmonsftw  asked:

Do you think there is any chance we will get a lil trailer at nycc since they will be so far into filming at that point??? That would make no sdcc worth it.

Hi @fitzsimmonsftw

There is absolutely a chance.   Clark seemed pretty serious about making sure the fans got something awesome at NYCC.

But:

  • My track record for predicting all things promo related absolutely stinks. I swear they live to prove me wrong.
  • Though the one constant is usually me leaving my house so for the good of the fandom I’ll make sure I’m away from my computer during the panel ;).
  • The ABC Promo team doesn’t do the best job when it comes to promoting AOS.  See the great promo meltdown of 2K16 or the fact we are lucky to get 1 promo for the show each week.
    • I really hope they change this and start airing promos as far out as November/December when Carter was the Mid Season Show.

If not a full trailer then a Sizzle Reel kind of thing like the CW shows did for SDCC, most of them used footage from the first one or two eps since that is all they have filmed.  I’ll be totally happy with that too!

Other items we can cross our fingers for are posters.  They handed out posters at Wondercon during the panel so they could do it again at NYCC to give us a small hint of where things are going.  

Wondercon 2017

Comic Con 2016

All we can do is keep our fingers crossed, beg, and offer puppy dog eyes to the Promo Team to bring one with them.

Okay I'm sorry but this has to stop.

First if all, that’s a lie, I’m not sorry for this post, not in the slightest bit. Please stop with all the hate. First off, the Sabezra thing. I personally do ship it, and if you don’t, well that’s great for you, but you don’t have to go on an on about how it’s the worst ship in the galaxy, and how it should burn in hell and die with the people who ship it, as one person so beautifully put it. I mean, seriously? Grow the fucking hell up please. I apologize for the language, and I usually try to keep this blog suitable for all ages, but this is frickin ridiculous. If you don’t like a ship, that’s wonderful, but please don’t fill the tags with horrible things. Secondly, the filler issue. If you can’t see that every single episode in this season has significance and is important, then I have no clue what you want more. Every single episode we have received has been incredible, written with thought, and each battle scene has been more intense than the last. The dynamic between the characters is incredible, the dialogue is amazing, the villains rare superb. What kriffing more do want? The last battle: an incredible episode, one of my favorites actually. It was a complete tribute to the clone wars and I loved it. Rex was incredible in it, and it was definitely NOT a filler. There were so many droids in the clone wars, but where’d they all go? This episode was really good in creating a scene for Rex, plus it brought back a lot of old memories. One episode I CANNOT believe people are calling a filler is the Antilles Extraction. Like, seriously? Wedge Antilles joins the Rebellion. How can that not be important. The imperial super commandos episode was so significant in so many other ways. There were hints towards Boba Fett, the early concept for Bounty Hunters and Mandalorians, and it’s more background for Sabine, with a great Sabine/Ezra/Chopper family bonding dynamic. The iron squadron episode was really good, not only because it’s a reminder that this IS a kids show, but also its a great way to show how the Rebellion has been growing. Also, Sato has a nephew guys. How is that not adorable. Finally, the latest episode has gotten a lot of hate, so stop. This episode was awesome, and not only because Sabine was so worried for Ezra there, but also because it showed how Ezra is blind to Hondo’s tricks, and he finally realises that maybe Hondo ain’t so great after all. Also, it’s always good to see Captain Orellios. That’s all I gotta say. If you don’t like what I have to say, that’s not my problem, you’ll just have to deal with it or get lost. I’m sorry for being so rude, but ive really had enough of haters in every single fandom. A fandom comes to life, and haters aren’t far behind, dedicating blogs to hating on the fandom.. Like seriously. Fuck off.

10 reasons to get excited about the Dabb era:

1.  He gives us powerful female characters who are neither villains nor love interests.

2.  He’s also responsible for the humanization/redemption of Rowena and Amara, and ensured that neither were killed off by the season’s end:

3.  He loves Castiel, and has included him in most of his episodes.

4.  Similarly, many of his Cas-centric episodes pay much closer attention to his emotional ark than those of other writers.  (Case in point, Hunteri Heroici, Clip Show, Stairway to Heaven, and the Things We Left Behind).

5.  And while “brotherly” isn’t the term I’d use to describe Dean and Cas’s relationship, this affirmation did debunk the bibros most frequent complaint:  “The show is about the brothers!!”  Well, now we can safely argue that Cas fits that category.  (And maybe eventually brother in-law, if I have anything to say about it.) 

6.  He also seems to include a fair amount of Bi!Dean:  most recently, he gave us the gift of Dean gushing over male wrestlers in “Beyond the Mat.”

7.  Not to mention these great Destiel scenes:

(Seriously, season eight was a fucking gift.)

8.  And at least three Destiel hugs.

9.  His episodes personify the awesomely weird humor Supernatural is known for (“Yellow Fever,” “Sam, Interrupted,” “Weekend at Bobby’s,” “What’s Up, Tiger Mommy?,” “Hunteri Heroici,” etc.)

10.  And last but not least, he’s already steered the focus of the show away from increasingly bigger, badder “big bads” and more towards the emotional arcs of the characters (which, let’s be honest, is all we really care about, anyway).

(And yeah, I know Robert Singer is supposedly involved, too, but that’s a fact the fandom has collectively decided to ignore and I’m happy to join them.)

So season twelve, here we come!

anonymous asked:

What's your opinion on the deterioration of the SU fandom via SJWs? I'm not a big fan of how the fans have made it all about race and representation and the lengths they'll go to bash on other artists and even locations (Keystone Motel incident).

It’s a darn shame is what it is. Here you’ve got this really great show that has some positive messages for kids, and as per usual someone comes along and ruins it for everyone else. The gems are space rocks. Space rocks have no gender. In her AMA on Reddit, Rebecca Sugar responded to many questions, some of which people were repeatedly wanting to know the genders and races of the gems. Her responses were essentially “No. Gems are gems.” And then she moved on to the next non-race baiting thing.

This is one of many reasons I was chased off Tumblr before. Fandom of any sort does not mix well with the SJW agenda, and usually ends up causing these sorts of environments for fans. I’m very familiar with the Keystone Motel incident. I’ve stayed there on vacation visiting family, and it’s a pretty decent place. What they did by attacking that business via bad and faked reviews is not only a terrible waste of their own time, but is also legitimate grounds for the business owners to sue for libel and defamation which has harmed their business. Unfortunately the cowards who did it hide behind throw away accounts and URLs.

And this “race coded” mess needs to stop. It’s based off grossly inappropriate stereotypes and reinforces them. “Garnet’s black because big lips and big hips and an afro!” No. She’s not. She’s a gem. She’s a space rock. She’s a space rock made of two other space rocks. “Amethyst is Latina because she’s loud and brash and-” No. Just no. She’s purple. She’s also younger than the other gems, hence the childishness. Hence the loudness. And her body type? Not specifically Latina either. “Pearl is why because she’s strict and pale and-” No. Pearl is “white” because she is the color of a pearl, not because of some conspiracy Rebecca Sugar is in on to make people feel validated and reinforcing stereotypes. White people can have big hips and lips. Black people can be loud and brash. Latin@s can be pale and strict. Heck, ANYONE can be loud and strict and brash and big hips and lips and if they’ve got the hair for it, have an afro. And before anyone pulls out the “But Garnet’s voice actress is black, so Garnet is black!” No. Stop. If we used that logic, then Samurai Jack isn’t Asian, he’s black.

And Apu from the Simpsons isn’t Indian, he’s white.

A lot of the messages from this show are acceptance of others for their differences. Acceptance of things that make us all unique individuals. And yet the only things I ever see coming out of that fandom are based purely on stereotype and bile. It’s ridiculous and ignorant.

All in all, as an artist myself, I understand the need for positive representation across the board. But jamming it down people’s throats, and actively IGNORING THE CREATOR’S STATEMENTS ON IT are completely uncalled for and grossly inappropriate.

The SU fandom started out as a safe, fun space for people of all ages, and it’s been twisted, as Tumblr usually does to good things, into this toxic hate-filled SJW minefield, and it’s uitterly disgusting the disrespect these people are showing to other fans who love the show, too and just wish to show their appreciation for it.

Do I think all of the racebent art is awesome? No, I don’t. Some of it has been VERY offensive, especially the ones posted by 4chan users here. But to outright attack someone for simnply drawing a picture and showing their love for a show? Drawing a picture and doing the exact same thing many other fans are doing, just not in the same manner? THIS is what drives people away from really great shows and comics and stuff that they love. The gatekeeping ways of Fandom. - Southern Mod

What Fanfiction Has Done for Me

First, backstory: my friend used my computer recently for some school stuff and I had some fanfiction open in a new window. Yes, it was explicit (because I know who I am and what I’m about) and she gave me SO much shit for it. And I realized that I’m so used to being around people who appreciate fic that I forget that a lot of people hold on to the stereotypes of like Wattpad “Me and Harry Styles” fanfiction. So this list kinda came to mind and I just needed to write it out, idk. 

  1. It has opened my eyes to the LGBTQ+ community in a way that nothing else could. Before I started reading fanfiction for my favorite tv shows, I had never really watched a show with gay characters on it. I live in a pretty conservative area (and have pretty conservative parents) and I hadn’t met anyone gay. I knew what it was but that was about it. Reading fanfiction made me want to see more quality LGBTQ+ content on TV and not just in the minds of writers. It made me want to look into what that particular community was facing and how the love I had seen in stories manifested itself in real life.
  2. It made me want to be a better writer. Now, I’m not planning on writing fanfiction anytime soon, but the (initially surprising) quality of characterization and character development and world-building and plot development I saw in really good fanfiction made me want to step up my game. It made me want to write something that could evoke emotion in the same way those fics did. 
  3. It made me want to join more fandoms and watch tv shows/movies and read more books that I would never have read otherwise. Crossovers especially. 
  4. It’s such an awesome escape from the craziness that is my life. Good fluff can always put a smile on my face. Really well thought out plots can draw me in and make me forget about what a horrible day I’m having. A great angsty storyline makes my life suddenly look so much better in comparison. 
  5. It kind of rekindled my love for reading. After entering high school and suddenly finding myself with little to no free time, I found that I had less and less time to read, something that I really enjoyed previously. After discovering fics, I found myself making time to read them (which may be good or bad depending on how you look at it). Then I realized that some of the fics I was reading were longer than books, and I started reading again (still not as much as I wanted but it was a start that was long overdue). Even better, I found myself looking for the same characteristics I enjoyed in fic in the books I read. (quality character development, a cohesive plot, writing that could evoke emotional response, etc)

So yeah. That got a lot lengthier than I expected but I guess I had a lot of thoughts to put out there. 

To anyone who sees this, I’m curious. What has fanfiction done for you?

I feel like the Hamilton fandom is losing some momentum.

Maybe I’m just imagining it, but I feel that the fandom is slowing down a bit. I really want something great for the fandom to reinvigorate us!

So I’m doing a video project. It’ll be pretty simple. Inbox or message me a short paragraph on what Hamilton the show (or the cast) means to you. I’ll put all the notes in a video format and post it to my tumblr. I think this would be a fun and fantastic way to remind tons of people why Hamilton is so exciting and awesome, and why it has such a deep impact on so many people. I’m calling this project the ‘Love For Hamilton Project’.

I don’t have a deadline set for the project yet, but if you want to submit a note, let me know. I’m assuming I’ll set the deadline for some time in October. I’ll update you all when its definite!

If you have questions or comments, let me know!

Xoxoxoxo

Just a Few Words...

So I know everyone has been campaigning hard… and by no means stop doing that… But, I just wanted to say a few things about this fandom real quick.

I think y’all are so awesome! I can’t believe how quickly we assembled and started campaigning to move the show to another network. We are a resilient group and I can’t believe I’m part of such a wonderful group of people like this! No words… Just love. I love y’all so much. I know how corny that sounds, but idgaf. 

Since coming into this fandom in April 2016, I’ve spoken to so many intelligent people in this fandom, made some great friendships, and learned so much. 

Anyways, just want to give a few shoutouts to some of the people I’ve met:

@sapphireofthe90s - You were my very first friend in this fandom and I’m eternally grateful. I don’t ever take that for granted. You’re so smart and I love talking with you! You’re just a great friend :D

@theowldetective - You were the one who really inspired me to start analyzing the show. You’re a force to be reckoned with and even though you get the nasty trolls, you’re still awesome all the time! Keep it up girl!

@bmwwritinggmw - Kat you’re amazing in every way. I’ve never looked up to someone I didn’t know as much as I look up to you. I really hope you accomplish everything you want in life. And I’m sure that when you start writing for TV shows and movies, they’ll be nothing short of brilliant. I also love how kind and understanding you are and how objectively you analyzed Girl Meets World. You really stood out in this fandom and I’m so glad someone like you is on here. 

@srnackle - Nicole! You’re awesome. No seriously. You’re awesome. I hope you’re able to really enjoy university and have all kinds of great experiences! You taught me so much about blocking and other elements of television and I just enjoy our conversations. I know you’re crazy busy, but I hope you’ll always be writing in one form or another. You’re such an amazing writer and I really hope you know that! 

@summonerserahheart - Sarah! I’m so glad you’re on here! You’ve been so awesome in helping to round up this fandom along with @likeapromises. I love your theories and I think it’s so dope that you’re writing a book! You’re always encouraging us when things are tough and I just want you to know how much I appreciate that!

@cowboyandshortstack - Ashley! I love your blog. I love our conversations even more. You’re so smart, but you’re also so level headed as well. I like that any time I had a question about Lucaya, you’d always let me run something by you. I think you have, arguably, the best understanding of them out of anyone in the fandom! Thanks for talking with me :D.

@astralfreckles - Tali! I love reading your stories and well… just anything you put out! I’m so glad that we met on here! I never thought that I’d actually be able to meet so many wonderful people on here. Keep killin the game! You deserve nothing but the best.

@queenmal103 - Arielle! I owe you the biggest apology! I know we’ve been working on a story together, but I dropped the ball so hard. Anyways, you’re just killin it at life. You’re everything I hope to be someday lol. We may not talk as much, but I really appreciate who you are. 

@isdorasmckle - So I know we only had one conversation, but I really want to thank you again for being honest with me. I know it wasn’t easy, and I know that it can be tough to speak up - but I’m so glad that you did! And if you ever get the opportunity to speak up again, I hope you take that opportunity. 

If y’all aren’t following any of the above, you need to asap!

I’ve met so many wonderful people in this fandom. And I’m sure I’m forgetting a whole bunch of people! I think you’re all awesome so forgive me if I didn’t mention you. I’m honestly so floored at how many amazing people there are in this fandom and how much we’re willing to work together to try and get this show renewed. Even if our efforts go unrewarded, I still think that this has to be the best online experience I’ve ever had. I feel like we’re one big weird online family and this post is incredibly cheesy, but idgaf. I love y’all and I’m not afraid to say it!

Keep up the good fight!

- Kelly

anonymous asked:

Zoro and Sanji are best friends in One Piece world. Do you agree with it? As a ZoSan shipper, see they friendship in canon is enough. <3 For a relationship, we can always read fanfictions, doujinshis and see fanarts.

Absolutely!

If they weren’t friends, would Sanji come to search for Zoro after they got separated upon returning to Sabaody? If they weren’t friends, would Zoro knock Sanji down at Thriller Bark?

They CARE for each other! They’re dorks and it’s part of their characters to argue and fight as they always do, throwing insults and names at each other, but they’re friends, great friends and crewmates.

I swear to God I’ll go and collect all of their moments from beginning of the manga and color them, just like Kuravix did, just to spread their relationship and show how they’re just an awesome duo!

I understand that ZoSan is probably the biggest ship in OP fandom but I really want to bring out the healthy FRIENDSHIP these two boys have. Let’s leave aside all the gayness, that’s fanmade anyway, and focus on what Oda gave us.

I’m not saying I reject ZoSan as yaoi! No Sir, I have folder with over 100 doujinshi subfolders and hell I love NSFW ones the most. I just want to point out that ZoSan should not be hated for stupid reasons and that it’s not all about gayness. Like I said, THAT’S FANMADE! No one’s forcing you to ship them that way! Heck, don’t even call it a ship but just see Zoro and Sanji as two crewmates who don’t just fight all the time but care for each other through deep understanding and friendship they have.
