So… I’m finally doing one of these. Somewhere last week (or the week before?) I reached 200 followers, so I thought I’d do a “follow forever” post as it is custom in the tumblr scene and send out my appreciation to the people I follow.
❤ = lovely people I know / have talked to, who I love very much
★ = blogs i have followed for a looong time, which i consider my role models
Some random ass anti in the sheith tag:
CALLOUT POST! This person posts NOTHING but SHEITH and some of it is even NSFW! I'm telling you so you can blacklist this person and their tags and NEVER see their problematic-ness EVER in your life.
Okay…I’m worried I’m going to lose followers for this and I’m really scared about speaking up about stuff because I’m afraid someone will get upset with me…but can I just say something??
Even if you think PewDiePie is still a bad person after his sincere apology, please don’t bring Markiplier and JackSepticEye into this because they defended their friend they know in real life. They know each other as Felix, Mark, and Sean, which is seperate from their comedic personalities they have on for the camera. You have to remember they’re real, genuine human beings that support each other because they’re friends.
And why are so many people bent on running other people’s careers to the ground? Nobody’s perfect, obviously, so I’m sure everyone has said something that has offended someone at some point in their life, even if it wasn’t to their face.
Felix apologized and acknowledged he took the joke too far, and because other people turned down his requests on the same site (which were not similar in any case, and were practically harmless jokes) and he believed they would turn down his request to hold up the sign. At that point, he didn’t realize that they wouldn’t understand what was being written in English.
If you watch the actual original video he realizes once they actual replied to his request how shocked he was to see they actually did it. He apologized in a video shortly after, then made the newest video in response to how the media blew it out of proportion, and in addition made a tumblr post about it.
He also made it VERY CLEAR, that he does not support ANY kind of hatred, and although some of his jokes can be distasteful or offensive to some people, he NEVER means them sincerely and admits that he’s a “rookie comedian” and he’s just testing boundaries to create comedy. He knows what happened crossed a line, and he apologized.
I’m not defending Felix’s actions and I believe that joke crossed a boundary. I’m not supporting anything anti-Semitic in any way whatsoever, and I’m not a fascist or anything like that, and neither is Felix.
But I also don’t think it’s okay to bully someone because they made an honest mistake in regards to comedy. I don’t think it’s okay to cancel a show hundreds of people worked on because of it. People have been pushing comedic boundaries for years, and yes, jokes can go too far.
But I want to make it
ABSOLUTELY 100% CRYSTAL CLEAR THAT I DO NOT THINK THAT JOKE WAS OKAY.
At the same time, a joke is a joke, and maybe if people stopped making Hitler jokes and 9/11 memes, it wouldn’t be considered as a form of comedy. If anything, it points out the faults that the internet has as far as comedy goes, because it’s the weirdness, bluntness, and anonymity of the internet that allows these types of jokes to be acceptable whereas they aren’t in real life. Yet again, you can’t control what people can say and do as far as that goes because of free speech, but people need to understand there are lines and boundaries.
Sometimes certain topics should be kept off limits as comedy, but a lapse in judgement as for what is considered comedic does not call for the destruction of someone’s career (and other people associated with them) because of the clickbait headlines that are spread by untrustworthy media sources.
YOU GUYS… HOW, WHY???? 300, seriously? SERIOUSLY? I’ve been doing this for what, six months? *flails about* So, without further ado…
First, I’d like to mention five personal blogs (because they don’t always get love from rp blogs) that I adore and whose writers/creators make me very happy. @llehnsherr and @fassmaan for your lovely Jenna creations and yes, all the other ones too! @joexjuliana you feed my High Castle gif addiction and you’re crazy for letting me borrow them whenever but I love you for it. @toostubborntocroak your commentary is lovely and I enjoy reading it! AND @annachibi your blog never fails to make me smile!
AND NOW THE MEAT OF THIS BLOG, MY FELLOW RPERS I WRITE WITH.
I have been thinking back and forth on what to post, because I knew I wanted to post something. At last I decided to post a really personal post I have had saved in my drafts for 2 months. But in the last second I changed my mind. Instead I’ll just thank you all for making me realize those personal things. I started this blog three months ago. Before that I’ve never been on tumblr. I’m 22 years old, and these last three months I have learned more about myself than ever before. It’s not only because of Skam but because of you guys. All the wonderful people in this fandom. Thank you for always being so smart and educating people. Thank you to everyone who follows me and thank you to everyone who make such amazing posts!
I’ll tag some people that really gets to my emotions by their posts, or people who always makes me laugh, or people who I’ve gotten to know!💞
Sorry that this blog (and my life) have been a bit of a mess lately. Sometimes you forget to switch back to your personal blog and not realize you posted some tasty memes for your whole following to see (that they surely don’t care about l o l) Back to your scheduled programming 👌🏾
I'm so sorry for all you had to go through, u hope you're okay, please take care of yourself I care about you, so do all of your followers! I'll read your rants and talk if you need it, as I'm sure anyone else would too.
Thanks hun. I actually went back and deleted my story on the post because I think it was ultimately more depressing than helpful, and I worried after posting it that it might come off like I’m looking for sympathy or attention. But it’s okay, just typing it all out was sort of therapeutic in and of itself and I appreciate that you read it!
I don’t like to talk about it, partly for the reasons listed above but also because it feels like I can never convey things well enough with my words (plus I’m lucky, all things considered, there are people who have been through so much worse). But it’s really kind of you to offer to talk with me about it. Seriously, just the fact that you care enough to reach out means a lot, so thank you. //blows kiss in your direction~
SKDJFKLDS y’all I’m sorry I hate to be this kinda person, but I saw people making indirect posts about larries being unexcited about the Harry album stuff, and I always get too curious so I went to look at the blog of one of the people I really liked when I still followed larries. AND THEY ARE REALLY COMPARING REPORTS ABOUT HARRY’S SOLO CAREER…. TO CONSPIRACIES ABOUT LOUIS’ SON.
Like as if those are remotely the same thing??? Even if you still believed “babygate” how could you possibly think this is a reasonable comparison? One of the heads of Sony was LITERALLY QUOTED TALKING ABOUT HOW HARRY’S ALBUM IS ALMOST READY. This isn’t vague “theorizing” based on Harry’s t-shirts and who he interacts with in an audience. Multiple people who are part of Harry’s team have confirmed he is working on an album that will be released soon!!! skdlfjklsjfksd I just.. cannot.
I'm not an emotional person, but this was something that I needed to say.
I’d really appreciate it if people could like so Mark will see this message. I don’t normally use tumblr like this but I tried to put my heart out there and say what’s on my mind.
Okay, here goes.
Videos like this one were so important. Mark, you’re such an inspiration to me, and I think I speak for a lot of other fans when I say that you’re an inspiration to them as well. Since I became a fan in August 2015 you’ve taught me not just how important it is to look after other people, but also that it’s important to look after myself. You’re such an important figure in my life because you’re one of the only people that genuinely has a positive impact on me – thoughts and actions and all. You’ve made me a better person and I’m only getting better every day. My adjustment disorder rarely even affects me anymore thanks to you, and my anxiety even less so – because you taught me that nobody is perfect and that it’s okay to fail.
I would say that you have no idea just how important you are to the people who love you, but I don’t think that’s true. You have such a big heart and you care for us so much, and it is truly endearing and meaningful. And, on a personal note, let me just say that it is such an honour to be a fan of somebody who cares so much for the people around him. There have been so many times where I’ve wanted to give up in the last few years, Mark, but thanks to you I now have the motivation to carry on with my life, my plans, my end goal. I guess the point of this is just a way for me to say thank you for driving me (and many other fans) forward every day. I mean it, it is truly an honour for me to call myself a Markiplier fan, and I’ll wear it proud on my sleeve until the day I die.
We’ll never let you down, Mark, I promise. And remember, we love you dearly. Continue using your influence to make the world a better place, and we’ll always keep you in mind as we do the same.
Take care. ❤

Rules | Answer the 20 questions and tag 20 amazing followers you’d like to get to know better! Tagged by: @skymurdock oh hey this is a good chance to have something of an About Me page
name | nicknames | Moonlight! I’ve stopped using my real name as much as I can because tumblr is pretty terrifying and idk this one just sort of stuck.
zodiac sign | Taurus
height | 5′4″
orientation | BI AS HELL, it took me a very long time to come to terms with that, I still struggle with feeling valid over it, like I’m a fraud or I’m just 50% straight and 50% gay (ugh), but I’m getting better as I find more people who accept bisexuaity. ♥
nationality | American
favorite fruit | Peaches! I’m not kidding that I will eat three a day every single day if they’re in season and I will never get sick of them. After that apples and nectarines. But they all have to be as hard as they can be, if it’s not crisp, ugh, gross, get it away from me.
favorite season | Spring! I’m not fond of it being damp and muddy everywhere, but unlike fall, NO INSECTS. I will take the lack of pretty foliage if it means I can have the windows open and not get bitten.
favorite book | Right now I’d have to say The Silmarillion, I just really love the characters and the world a lot. But I change often and I think the series I’ve most reread is the MacDonald Hall series by Gordon Korman.
favorite flower | Lilacs! We have lilac trees around here and they are absolutely gorgeous when in bloom.
favorite scent | Peach or strawberry. I love citrus fruit everything pretty much.
favorite color | Blue or pink, depending on my mood. Blue has been “my” color ever since I was young, it has so many beautiful shades, especially in jewel tones, but also I love pink because I swung back hard in the other direction of “ew pink is girly, like all those other girls!” Fuck yeah it is, now I love it more.
favorite animal | Cats! I love all animals pretty much but those soft fuzzy murder machines are my favorites.
coffee, tea, or hot cocoa | I am a heathen and don’t care for hot drinks, but give me that terrible Crystal Lite peach tea and I will drink a whole bottle of it if you let me.
average sleep hours | I try to sleep from about 11:30pm to 7:30am, but usually it’s like 1-5am + 5pm-8:30pm. orz
cat or dog person | TINY FUZZY MURDER MACHINES
favorite fictional character | TSUKINO USAGI IS MY FOREVER GIRL, she is the one I will always return to. Her struggle with her emotions, her unwavering ability to love and care about others, her constant rise to be kinder and to defeat enemies with love, that she struggled with feeling useless, feeling depressed, feeling jealousy, the journey to being an adult, all of it was such a good emotional journey.
number of blankets you sleep with | One, the thinner the better. I will sleep with just a sheet many a night.
dream trip | Japan, but only if I could properly get in gear and learn more Japanese than a toddler speaks. I know it’s a common answer, but there’s so many things I would love to see in person, so many landmarks and shrines and bookstores and cafes that seem really lovely.
blog created | About six years ago, for my original blog that I deleted and then remade this one. (This one is five years old.)
Recently a few blogs I follow have turned into Monsta X blogs and I just wanna say IT’S HAPPENING 2017 IS THE YEAR MONSTA X TAKES OVER THE KPOP WORLD YOU KNOW IT I KNOW IT OTHER IDOLS KNOW IT AND YOU BEST PREPARE YASELF CAUSE MONBEBES BOUT TO RULE THIS PLAYGROUND YA HEAR
