I'm going through your nygmobblepot tag right now and I regret not watching the show sooner (like about 2 years sooner) so much I missed so much awesome stuff :( you seem to have had so much fun with the shipping and au-making etc and now everything seems to be nothing but discourse, especially with cory and robin :(
Hi! So maybe some will be offended by this donno and I’m not into causing drama obvs but just gonna reply for once.
Yes seeing tons of notes on my old stuff tonight makes me very feelsy! I thought everyone would be as happy as me and my friends when s3 started and Nygmo finally got what they deserved in airtime…but it turned into so much drama and crying whiny babies shouting queerbait after 2 episodes. I have met amazing new ppl too, don’t get me wrong!! Because I mean I’ve been late into fandoms too obvs. But to see so many ppl jump on the ship in 3.5 and 2 eps later geting hateful and angry at everything becuase Nygmo didn’t become canon hurts to see. It’s sad that I untracked the Nygmobblepot tag because it got filled with NONSENSE that didn’t even fit there. And as Ella now said tonight, look at how safe Robin & Cory felt to go all Nygmob rp on twitter in public before, look last summer how excited they were for Nygmob! Thinking everyone would love it as much as them, as much as me. Instead they get hateful comments from both homophobes AND lgbt ppl shouting queerbait at them…well done you all! I shipped Nygmob forever, ppl saying you can’t ship them now because everything that happened are wrong according to me, s3 is everything I waited for. And I want more Nygmob and canon Nygmob ofc, but I ship them as much as I did in early s1 as I do now! The most sad part is how it maybe have hit the actors that do an amazing job. So yep, this is why I never jump into drama threads going around, I don’t need that. I block people that are whiny babies pain in the ass because I’m on tumblr for pleasure and Nygmob and Smaylor are so important to me. Never feel bad for blocking anyone, if someone ruins your casual fun tumblring they don’t deserve your attention. Because I’m still here as you see making tons of gifs, that’s because I LOVE Gotham so much and there are so many amazing people here that I love!! But I mean this is fandom life, every fandom has drama! It’s just been so hard for me on Gotham, coming in when it was tiny and see how it grew into this mess. But I won’t let hateful ppl ruin MY enjoyment. I mean I see hate on my other shows too, block block! I want nice people on my dash. I don’t think it will go back to before but maybe it can be better. It seems like Robin & Cory didn’t dare to play around anymore because the hate, and if they would go all giggly they would be accused of QB. Which is garbage.
And as said I don’t wanna cause drama so I won’t write too much more about this. I love all amazing messages I’m getting and seeing all amazing fan arts and gifs! Because remember if you feel things are a bit rough that there are amazing people here, and they keep me here <333 Hugs!
