updated standing

from a comrade

UPDATE FROM STANDING ROCK:
Worse than before square one: being arrested and demolished and persecuted in SILENCE: they’ve shut down live feeds (must be an illegal block) and are behaving in ways that keep the media from being able to cover what’s happening.
They warned that they would come on the 22nd and instead came today so there would be no media coverage. Please please post so it can reach the people it should.
This makes me sick to post this: The raid has begun at Standing Rock (per Sunny Savage who is there). There is apparently a standoff happening right now. Backwater bridge has been opened, and there are large numbers of police, DAPL security, and National Guard circling the water protectors. Raids and mass arrest are imminent. Apparently, Trump is behind this. Live feeds are blocked. Media are not there, except for TYT. If you copy and paste, more people will see than if you click “share.” Send love & support by reposting if you will.

Beautiful resistance rises in DC – thousands out on miserable day to stand w/ those fighting for clean water & existence! Powerful – native youth from Standing Rock forming the front [line] of massive march! Sleet is coming down harder & temp is dropping, but crowd keeps growing! Too important to stay home. Filling the streets & overflowing! DC looks wayyyy better today than it does on a normal day. [An] iconic moment as #NativeNationsRise march heads to Trump Hotel & erects tipi on front plaza. “We come from Chaco Canyon, where we also fight extraction. If we stand together, we can win.” Amazing native youth! Rally filling park in front of White House! We’ll be here to #resist for as long as we need to be.

Something Has Caught My Attention - Please Read...

Dear Shauna’s ( @exosmutxoxo‘s ) followers (and avid readers in general~),


A few things have been brought to my attention recently, and it has me extremely. disturbed. While Shauna and I both actively encourage our followers to message and communicate with us, Shauna has received several messages in the past few days that are inappropriate, unwarranted, and downright disrespectful.


Exhibit A.

“Can i make a suggestion for the smutty bit in part 5? Rape scene pls?”

Exhibit B.

“Why are you getting so stressed out over the smut scene lmao just make him fuck her against her will, whats the problem”

Exhibit C.

“A rape scene between them would be hot HEHE MAKE IT HAPPEN AUTHOR-NIM”


*Please know that this is merely a fraction of the inappriopriate messages Shauna (and other authors) have received in the past. I will take this moment to elaborate that RAPE OF ANY COLOR, SHAPE, OR SIZE IS NOT OKAY, AND SHOULD NOT BE MADE LIGHT OF WITHIN FANFICTION


Although we acknowledge that the majority of our followers, you, are significantly understanding and compassionate when it comes to writing, it has become increasingly apparent that there are many who are negligent to the fact that Shauna is a hard-working author who writes as an act of unselfish, unpaid love. 

She does not write because you demand a recreation of your sexual fantasies

She does not write because you can’t jack off on your own

And she certainly does not write because of impersonal, disgusting, and utterly revolting messages like this

Authors write fanfiction because they gain fulfillment in knowing that someone, anyone out there appreciates, supports, and enjoys reading their work. Authors write fanfiction because it’s what they love. Writing fanfiction, even a piece that is just 1,000 words, can take grueling hours of repetitive writing and erasing, writing and erasing, until we have created a piece that we feel is acceptable for us to present to you.

Shauna is working relentlessly to entertain her followers with exquisitely-crafted stories, and in this case, stories that are 10k+ words a piece. She’s been stressing out because of the requests which she has committed herself to writing out of love for her followers. Which, I may remind her, she is not obligated, nor under contract, to fulfill. This applies to every writer who accepts requests: they write them out of love, and on their own accord, and this by no means justifies the bashing and hate that writers receive for not completing them.

And unfortunately, this incident isn’t contained to just Shauna’s experiences. Recently, I’ve heard from several of my mutuals, coming to me and explaining nasty-grams, insensitive messages pertaining to altering the plot/details of their writing, and requests calling for scenes that are downright disgusting. It disheartens me greatly to know that my mutuals, my friends have been putting up with this for so long, and continue to put up with this, sometimes on a daily basis.

This is why YOU matter.

YOU, the reader, have just as much power and influence as we, the authors do.

Be the person to send your favorite authors a note of encouragement. I promise, the only reaction your message will receive will be an incoherent strand of words on the other side of the screen, as the recipient of the message is overcome with gratitude and a surplus of self-esteem. 

A simple message can make an author feel like they have the power to write a scene they’ve tried rewriting 9 times and still can’t seem to fix. 

A simple message can allow an author confidence that they can rest, and that they are, in fact, human.

A simple message is all it takes to fight back against the indecency that the few undesirable members of the fanfiction community decide to commit on the regular.

And lastly, thank YOU, the few, the proud, that send such support, love, and encouragement to your local authors. YOU may think we get tired of it, but never forget that YOU are most likely the reason we still write today, and the reason we didn’t give up before.


With love and in due grace,

~Nunchi (”Mama Nunchi”) Writes

I’ve designed some Boku no Hero Academia acrylic charms! I’m really excited how they came out and can’t wait to receive them in May. I will open preorders for these pieces in the first weeks of April probably. If time helps I’ll make Todoroki, Kaminari and Iida. (I would make a lot of extra characters but time is not helpful as I wish and I’m making other series too, like Mob Psycho 100 and Love Live!)
If you’ll be at Japan Expo in Paris you can take them there directly! I’ll be with my stand. I’ll update with map and everything about in the next months! (IT’S MY FIRST CONVENTION WITH MY SPACE OMG I’M A LOT EXCITED and scared ahahh)

Anyway, I hope you’ll like them it was really fun to make these babies ~

Update

So as it stands I have to call two different apartments tomorrow in the Buffalo area, so hopefully one will be available and I can pack up and head down. I want to say first and foremost that your support has been outstanding and I owe many people my life tonight and am more than beyond belief that I have received the support I have. I can’t thank you all for your generosity enough and I owe many friends a great debt. First months deposit and rent for either place will be in the ~1000-1200 dollar range, both places will be unfurnished. I can only take what fits in my small vehicle unless my mother or her boyfriend decide to take the vehicle back (its registered in her name even though I paid her back for it legally its bound to her) So with that being said I will need money for at the very least a bed and then household essentials such as dishes and towels. I will only have the clothes on my back and my pc but no internet access until I find a job down there. Both apartments offer supreme locations for job access and with my prior good job history and resume I should be able to get one quickly. I am currently sitting on Close to $2400 thanks to all of you so that will cut in half with my first deposit for rent alone, after that rent is in the 500-570 range after that which I will ofc be paying with a job. So with $2400 currently, subtracting the initial payment of 1200 for rent and maybe another ~350-500 for bed and essentials i could be sitting on only $700 at most. You are are under no obligation to donate to me and if donations cease after this post I understand and that is fair. You have all more than exceeded what I thought I would receive for support and I owe you my life and many thanks. I will update tomorrow with further info on whether things work out or change in any way. But this is how things look for prospective future. Moving out means I start getting to live freely and start the process to a name change and HRT but that is a journey for later. Once again, Thank you, I love you, and have the best days you can.
