we're in for a treat

“stop drawing damien in a binder it’s fetishistic” im sorry janet we just get literally no trans characters in any media ever that aren’t painted as a miserable depressed bastard with that being the only element of their character so we’d like to celebrate finally having good trans rep thanks

Do I hate asking people to review at the end of my chapters? Yes. I despise it. It makes me feel needy, whiny, ungrateful for the readers I have. 

Do I hate asking people to reblog instead of just liking? Yeah. It makes me feel like I’m forcing them to do it through a guilt trip. 

But here’s the thing. 

I consider myself a fairly well known author in certain fandoms. This isn’t me bragging, this is me looking at the number of readers I have on Fanfiction and AO3, the fact that I get requests in my inbox, and the fact that I’ve been mentioned in a couple different fic rec posts, and deducing that I’m a somewhat popular author. 

My most popular fanfiction I have posted on Tumblr has just over 800 notes. Only 18 of which are reblogs. Only 6 of which have comments or tags on them. 

The most popular piece of fanart (in this case, meaning a single piece of artwork, not a comic or series of drawings) that I’ve ever seen had over 100,000 notes. At least a quarter of them were reblogs, and every single reblog that I saw of it had comments in the tags. 

So I’m not going to stop asking for people to reblog. For people to leave comments in the tags. For people to leave comments on AO3 and Fanfiction. 

Because fanfiction writers are treated like pack mules and, for the most part, artists are treated like gods. Artists can get PAID for their fanart, and we get yelled at for not posting the next chapter of a 10K story within two days of the latest update.

And I’m kind of sick of it. And I know for a fact that I’m not the only one. 

If you have the ability to like it, you have the ability to reblog it and leave a three word comment in the tags. It’s not difficult. 

Honestly? Jin and Jimin are /adults/. They’re not catty teenage girls going behind each others backs and insulting each other, this was a part of a /game/, where the point is to roast someone basically.

Obviously, no one is trying to say that the statement that Jin made was okay or not uncalled for in any way (it personally made me cringe, and yeah, I’d rather it not have been said). But to criticize those kinds of statements means you should criticize them when they’re being used against anyone, including the /countless/ times they were used against other members i.e. Jin.

Going back to the adult thing, Jin and Jimin work and live together, and have for almost 5+ years. All of the boys are very close, and if there is an issue, I am sure at this point they are mature enough to address it with one another and talk it out.

  • Armin: Eren might be a little bit fragile after the trial, so let's try to be sensitive.
  • Jean: Oh believe me, I'm going to be nothing but nice to Eren from now on. If he snaps and goes on a rampage, who do you think he's coming for first?
  • Armin: He's not going on a rampage.
  • Mikasa: I bet he'd let me live. He likes me.
  • Connie: I'm just going to say it: I never trusted him.
  • Armin: Everyone, just be normal. We're going to treat him exactly the way we usually do–
  • Eren: [walks in holding a slice of bread]
  • Armin: There he is!
  • Everyone: Hi Eren!
  • Jean: Hey handsome guy!
  • Armin: How'd you sleep?
  • Eren: Fine.
  • Jean: Your hair looks super soft, Eren. And is that a great new shirt? Love.
  • Eren: Armin, can you hand me the butter knife?
  • Everyone: NO!
BTS as things me and my friends have said the night before our exam

Namjoon: “So far, I’ve run out of ink in 4 pens, broken the printer and I’m pretty sure I’ve been looking at the same essay for 7 hours.”

Jin: “I have reached the point of stressing so much that I am calm so I’m currently in bed with hot chocolate listening to the Frozen OST.”

Yoongi: “So I decided to take a study break. I fell asleep and woke up 6 hours later.”

Hoseok: “We all just gotta have hope, that the examiners are nice, okay? Optimism, we got this, it’ll be fineeee.”

Jimin: “No, that came up last year, which means it does not exist… and you’re not learning it because we’re in this together - you fail with me bro.”

Taehyung: “I’m a pro at pretending I know everything, but I actually don’t.”

Jungkook: “I’m winging it - like I always do.”

So I accidentally came out to my aunt today in the middle of an argument. I was so offended, so insulted on my behalf and on everyone else’s that I just blurted it out. The ensuing ‘conversation’ was awful and I am emotionally spent. My sister says that it’s fine, and not a big deal and that I should get over it. 

It’s not fine. It is a big deal. I will not get over it. 

The things my aunt said were awful, ignorant and homophobic. It is not okay to make a human being feel like they are less of a person because of the way they were born. It’s not. 

We do not deserve to be treated like lower class citizens.

We do not deserve to have to hide from our friends and family because we’re afraid of retribution from them.

We do not deserve to have to hide our flags and wipe off our face paint when we leave Pride just to get home safely.

We do deserve to be ourselves.

We do deserve to be happy and heard.

We do deserve to be treated like human beings.

We have days, weeks and even months dedicated to awareness, to making our community visible. But, is it visible outside of our community? Do people that need to be educated actually see it? See us? Not really. If people go looking for it it’s there, if people go looking for it our community is vibrant and thriving. But if they don’t, they hardly know it exists.

Well, screw that. 

I’m going to make posters and put them in places that people are going to see, I’m going to hand out flyers just like every other group does, I’m going to organise parties and festivals in the middle of my city where we can’t be ignored. I’m going to paint my city with rainbows and they are going to see it.

I refuse to be treated as a lower class citizen. 

I refuse to be scared and forced into hiding.

I refuse to be ignored.
