Ha. Hahahaha. HA. So I guess I kinda nailed it with naming Damian’s daemon “Alexandra” of all things after all?? Since Dami’s mom apparently had “Alexander” in mind while naming him??
Not to mention Alexander the Great was a famous conquerer, something implied in Damian’s own name (”to tame/conquer”) and likely what his mother/grandfather wanted for him. But Alexandra can be turned right around to mean “protector of man” or “one who comes to save warriors”, symbolizing the vigilante lifestyle he eventually chooses (after learning from his father and brother/family in general).
I’m just stupidly proud this came up in the canon comics haha I really did not see this before naming her.
I’m not 40 yet.. still got a number of years before I reach that awesome age.
I was making a stand in solidarity for my friends who are in their 30s/40s/50s/60s and who enjoy interacting positively on social media for things they are passionate about and also for being amazing wonderful and sweet human beings. Yet they are getting attacked and mocked for existing and joining the fandom. I mean, like what gives? Really tho, what the fuck? Let ppl be, let them enjoy what they enjoy and they’re aren’t disturbing or hurting anyone. I like seeing ppl happy doing things they love no matter the age.
I hate this idea that social media/fandom are only for such and such generation. Or for a certain group of ppl who were there long before everyone else jumped on the bandwagon. So what if they were? Nobody owns the fandom. We’re all playing in the same sandbox that is in GRRM’s backyard. He owns all of these because he wrote them in the first place. Gatekeeping or policing is perhaps only for antis and trolls who seek to destroy and spread hate and animosity within the fandom. Not for keen new members who only seek to belong. Plus, let me add that I knew what it was like to not have internet or mobile phones and just because a certain group of people were born into it and find it easy for them doesn’t mean they own it.
Also, in terms of fandom and the artistic/literary outputs that members have put their heart and soul into to create, those who want to enjoy such things better be over 21 because those stuff sometimes ain’t for minors, ya know. *side eyes A03 and fan art*
Fandom is for everybody. Social media is for everybody. Just be respectful, be kind, be welcoming and stay in your lane.
Here we go then. The Tordiot gives an update, and it’s fucking long.
After talking with @ask-vodkaleader (90gbvodka/Nano), we’ve come to the decision that we’ll be deleting/discontinuing this blog and their Tom blog. We agreed that it’d be best given we started to dislike the outcome of this one due to some rather crazy asks, and because of some people missing the mark on what we were doing with characterization/didn’t read the ‘Read Before You Ask’ (the 'crybaby’ anon, as example), then some other miscellaneous problems. We’ll instead be running a new TomTord blog jointly, so their’ll be two mods - Nano, and I - with a different premise. We’ll also eventually be starting a joint Tom and Edd centric blog, once we figure out an idea for Tom - feel free to send suggestions for that to @90gbvodka. The basic premise for the new TomTord blog is that when Tord came back, he stayed. Though in a little battle for the ownership of Tom’s room/Tord’s old room, they destroyed the house anyhow and had to move to a new one - the Red Army is still a thing, but Tord keeps it on the down low. Headcanons will again be highly prominent in said blog (there’ll be a 'Read Before You Ask’ eventually with the whole rundown, please read it), it’ll be a mix of art (from me) and text posts (from Nano and myself), and keep in mind it’s canon divergent/AU’d so characterization will follow that and mix with canon shit. The blog is focused on Tom and Tord, but Edd, Matt, Paul and Pat will all be open for asks as well.
If you want to follow this blog please ask for the name off anon (this is so I can reply to the ask privately), or PM me @colakinq, or Nano @90gbvodka. Side blogs can PM if only one person is running them.
Sorry if you genuinely liked what we had going here. Personally, I just don’t feel comfortable with this blog continuing, and Nano and friends want me to do what I’ll enjoy and be comfortable with.
i never take me or my feelings seriously anymore i love everyone i’m in love w everyone nd it’s not even emotionally taxing this way bc i just got a lot of love to give nd there r millions of ppl on this planet so why not ??? share it ????
During 피 땀 눈물 Yoongi held out his mic during his part in the first verse and all of the fans rapped his part and I’m still so amazed??? Rapping in korean is difficult and korean pronunciation can be a difficult thing and yet Yoongi had so much confidence that we knew his part and there was no awkward silence in the arena. Everyone was screaming out his lyrics and it was just another reminder that language doesn’t matter when it comes to music
