tumblr exploding

anonymous asked:

So I started TAZ after seeing Tumblr explode over it, but I'm 8 episodes in and while it's fun, I feel I'm missing something. I want to give it a real try for sure though. Can you talk about your experience with the podcast?

TAZ is a tricky one because, as a piece of narrative and entertainment, it started off as one thing and became something else. I got into it quite late because I had seen enough of my friends clamouring about it that I was pretty sure I’d enjoy it, and also I needed something new to listen to on the way to work.

you’re right: it starts slow. it starts shallow and messy and with inconsistent characterisation, because the mcelroys were trying to work out what they were doing. it’s a story in search of its true shape.

I was only really SOLD on it by halfway through the rockport limited arc, which is episodes 10-16. rockport limited is a murder mystery; I enjoy murder mysteries. (petals to the metal is a fantasy fast & the furious story. the basic genre of the subsequent adventures keeps shifting, which I liked a lot.)

the thing about the overarching narrative is: it builds. oh BOY does it build. by the time you get to the 20s, griffin’s got a handle on the story he wants to tell, and it gradually expands and layers itself on itself, and expects you to start putting some pieces together; by crystal kingdom, there’s a real sense of depth and breadth, and suddenly you have all of these? emotions???

so: the payoff is good, but the buildup is VERY SLOW. and if you’re not really sold on the format or the storytelling by the end of the rockport limited then this just may not be the podcast for you, and that’s fine.

I leave the comfort of my home one day and Tumblr explodes into hate...

Ok so I need to put in my two cents here because this is getting out of hand FAST! And honest to god this has been bugging the living shit out of me and i’ll feel better after I write this all down. 

I will not hide behind an anon message because I stand behind my beliefs and I politely invite everybody who does not agree or just plain hates to hate to have a frank honest and most importantly ADULT discussion with me!

First of all I want to say IT’S JUST A SHIP. Come on you guys, ok we are on different ships but at the end of the day aren’t we all just enjoying the same show?! Call me a flower power hippie, but if we all could get along more maybe the show would have better ratings… And people wouldn’t stereotype fandoms to begin with whether they be The Vampire Diaries, The Originals or any other series you enjoy!

That being said, I wholeheartedly disagree with the fact that Klaroline is a sick and abusive ship. Because ever since scene 1 between them we have seen Klaus’ humanity return piece by piece and is that not what a relationship should be! Bringing out the best in each other! The fact that you shouldn’t try and change your partner is ridiculous narrow minded and naive. A good relationship is where you are passionate about each other and strive to bring out the best in each other. Lord knows that for Caroline Klaus has showed humanity and compassion on more than one occasion. And in return it is because of him, she allows herself to let go of that ever lasting control she so holds on to. He teaches her to be passionate and carefree at times! 

As for what happened with hate to actors , that is NEVER EVER cool. Not even in the slightest and those people are what gives not only Klaroline but SHIPPING IN GENERAL a bad name. We acknowledged that and we call people out on it. But to generalize an entire fandom based on a few bad apples is in exaggeration a form of discrimination and racism (I’m using this word because in it’s essence racism is discriminating or generalization of a group of people based on race, gender, sexual preference of BELIEF!) And honestly I can’t wait to get hate for that statement but I stand by it! It wasn’t cool what happened not at all i’m not denying that but I’m part of this fandom too and I refuse to take blame for something I had no part in, nor will I let my friends or shop be blamed for it! 

I re-joined this fandom after a really difficult time in my personal life, because I needed a place for my creative outlet and somebody to talk to. Not only did I find that, I found myself a great group of friends along the way! People who are beautiful and intelligent and caring. People who look passed their noses and see that the world isn’t as black and white as some might make you think. People who have honestly saved my sanity during a very difficult time and they may not even realize it. So to generalize this fandom with foul name calling and childish hate is pubescent. I have yet to meet A SINGLE PERSON in this fandom who has been rude to me or others. If anything I was welcomed with open arms and more importantly open minds! Do we see eye to eye on everything? Absolutely not! Is that ok? ABSO-FUCKING-LUTELY! If people would just settle on having different opinion and respecting that finding ways to discuss matters in an adult way the world would be a much better place. And if this makes people happy who are you to tell them that it is wrong?

If you view Klaroline as an abusive ship than you might as well view the whole series as abusive. Damon-Caroline? Rape! Stefan/Elena Mental Abuse…. Freya/Keelin Abduction and torture not to mention humiliation… Klaus/Camille Co-dependency issues. Vicky/Tyler ? I’m not even going to get into that one … I could go on and on. At the end of the day the show has a certain target group, and this kind of drama is what appeals to that target group. Aside from maybe the Damon/Caroline story I view none of these ships as abuse. And even in that story line I respect the writers in the concept that this was needed for Caroline to grow into the person she was today. Do I agree with that particular storyline or concept. NO! Do I respect it! YES! Because that’s the viewpoint of another person and just because I don’t agree with it doesn’t make that other person any less of a human or unworthy of my respect! 

Now if people say we are the only ship that is hating on others and name calling and all that shit i’d like to point out two things! ONE: We were not the ones who send and anon message to somebody telling her she deserved to be raped tortured and killed for her ship. WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT ABOUT?! That is so beyond wrong I can’t even… I just can’t! When that happens YES we respond as a community and we respond HARD. Not to defend our ship but to defend our FRIEND! It is a cheap shot and it is bullying and I will stand up to you for it! You don’t know this person in real life and for all you know this could be very upsetting for them in ways you and your small brain can’t even imagine. I have a tendency to NEVER EVER call people stupid. Insulting somebody’s intelligence is something I don’t believe in because everybody is smart in their own way! But if you go out talking shit like that i’m sorry i’ll break my rule you’re just plain dumb! Not to mention anti-feminist hell anti-human for that matter!

I’ve gotten my share of hate mail/reviews over the past few months and honestly I could not give a crap. I don’t even respond to it because i’m a confident and secure stable person and It doesn’t bug me! But I also realize that on a social media as Tumblr there are alot of young boys and girls. Most of them are artists, writers, painters, gifmakers etc. All people with creative minds who are often burdened with enough insecurities as it is so the last thing they need is for you to add on to that! 

Steph and I have never actually talked in person. But I follow her blog and I enjoy her posts thoroughly! I have heard nothing but kind and loving words about her from the people I have met here and she is the heart of this community. So if you think you can bully your way into our fandom and our hearts you are sadly mistaken because we can and will stand up to you! Each and every one of us is strong beautiful and capable of greatness if you let them be. I belief this with my entire heart and soul. Not just in this fandom but in all the others!

So instead of sending all this hate why don’t you try and be understanding and be just plain nice to eachother. The world is already trying to drag us down. We shouldn’t do it to one another as well! And if that is a problem for you, block our tags and leave us alone, we will do the same for you!

With love,

Eve

NONE OF US WERE READY.

I remember tumblr EXPLODING when this happened. 

The way David hauled her up and put her in Killian’s arms. And she clung to him like a koala.

After all the blowing him off (heads out the gutter you know what i mean) she did, acting all blasé about their relationship… but when her life was in danger….

SHE REACHED FOR HIM.

I’m still planning to do a finished version but here are some sketches for a rainbow merm : )

anonymous asked:

This may seem like a noob question, but can you explain to me what yuri on stage is please? I've seen tumblr explode because of it but I don't really understand the explanations (English isn't my first language sorry!!)

Yuri on Stage is a live event happening right this moment in Japan! Kubo and other creators + all the seiyuus are appearing in it! It lasts 2 hours, with a day show and a night show, and has sections like trivias, interviews and live dramas!

The one thing we’re currently all dying over is the live drama where everyone’s in Hasestsu after an exhibition and Viktuuri gets drunk, Viktor misunderstands a pun Yuuri made and thought he was talking about an ex lmao So in his jealousy, Viktor dissappeared only to be found hours later at the top of Hasetsu Castle, stretching naked, exclaiming “Chihoko may be Yuuri’s past… BUT I AM HIS PRESENT” and then asking Yuuri to get naked and on top of the castel as well. Meanwhile, Phichit thought they god divorced and re-married.

YOU BETTER READ THIS REPORT, IT’S EVEN BETTER SEUNG-GIL KISSES NISHIGORI

The night show is currently being held, there’s still 1.15 hours left, but we’re speculating they might announce S2, so crossing out fingers!

more ITH headcanons

i have nothing to do so here are some headcanons i’ve come up with,, enjoy the ugly mobile format as well

• once usnavi put sonny on candy restocking duty,, he left him for twenty minutes and came back to see all of the candy gone and sonny with a stomach ache

• pete would watch graffiti artists do their thing as a kid (he would run away from home and spend hours doing this). one time, one of the artists gave pete his can and let him try it out

• usnavi would come in multiple times a week to get his hair cut when vanessa was working there (dani and carla quickly caught on)

• nina won the school’s spelling bee 4 times in a row in elementary school

• tiny mischief benny stole car keys from rosario’s once and hopped in a car and proceeded to try and drive it around the empty parking lot (kevin caught him before he got the chance to drive it into a pole)

• vanessa taught herself how to play piano (elaborate on this one with me i just imagined this and it makes me so happy?!?)

that’s all i got off the top of my head let me know if u like these!!!
