I think the worst thing that fandom culture and the increasing acknowledgement of fandom culture from creators has wrought is this

incredible amount of entitlement that people in said fandoms get like

just because creators know something is a thing in a fandom doesn’t mean they have to do it or else they hate their fans. It’s a consistent thing I’m seeing more and more in fandoms and it’s getting worse. Like all the steven universe garbage that’s happened over that show’s run and now overwatch like

people are wishing other people dead because a robot ninja and an angel woman are dating. and there are people who are legit horrified at the sheer concept of characters being straight and I’m just sat here wondering how they can possibly tolerate real life.

the fact that people get so entrenched in what they perceive as author approval when their ships and headcanons aren’t immediately shut down, despite said author interacting with the fanbase, that their mental health deteriorates when something contradictory is even hinted at is just sickening like

I just went on twitter and saw people legitimately wanting to kill a man on the overwatch team because of gency and like

its. not. yours.

you do not own overwatch. you do not own steven universe. you do not own anything you’re fandoming so hard over. rebecca sugar could tomorrow have pearl confess her love to renaldo and the overwatch team could make torbjornXpharah and both of them would be canon because it’s THEIR CREATION AND THEY DECIDE WHAT HAPPENS.

THEY get to decide what to do with it. Not you. It is NOT YOURS.

I absolutely think fandom/tumblr culture has led to more death threats and harassment than any other thing on the internet and I think if creators want to avoid it, the best way is to just stop acknowledging the fandoms. Because they’ll twist whatever they can get their filthy hands on so they can shit on other people and never feel remorse or grow as people because they’re doing it to be “progressive”

You want a physicist to speak at your funeral.
You want the physicist to talk to your family about the conservation of energy, so they will understand that your energy has not died. You want the physicist to remind your sobbing mother about the first law of thermodynamics; that no energy gets created in the universe, and that none dies.
You want your mother to know that all your energy, every vibration, every Btu of heat, every wave of every particle that was her beloved child remains with her in this world. You want the physicist to tell your weeping father that amid energies of the cosmos, you gave as good as you got.
And at one point you’d hope the physicist would step down from the pulpit and walk to your brokenhearted spouse there in the pew and tell him that all the photons that ever bounced off your face, all the particles whose paths were interrupted by your smile, by the touch of your hair, hundreds of trillions of particles, have raced off like children, their ways forever changed by you. And as your widow rocks in the arms of a loving family, may the physicist let her know that all the photons that bounced from you were gathered in the particle detectors that are her eyes, that those photons created within her constellations of electromagnetically charged neutrons whose energy will go on forever.
You can hope your family will examine the evidence and satisfy themselves that the science is sound and that they’ll be comforted to know your energy’s still around.
According to the law of the conservation of energy, not a bit of you is gone; you’re just less orderly.

Eleven: *materializes beside him* Take that back.

Mike: *blinking back tears* I didn’t think that would actually work.

Update on the sick bun ;3;

Thank to you guys i was able to take Flick to a vet and confidently be able to pay the exam fee and the money for his shots to get rid of the mites. We found out my old man has cataracts and is going blind. He’s a happy boy who enjoyed going out, and meeting new people at the vet. He lost a claw when he got scared from his teeth getting checked, but he’s no worse for ware than he was beforehand.

The vet did find something a bit concerning in his stomach. It’s a bit hard, but he said because of his age it could be a tumor. If it is, it’s more than likely been there for a while, especially if he’s still eating, but the vet also pointed out the possibility that it could be a wad of fur… which is common, but does need surgery. 

They want to do an X-ray, but that is 160$, so I’m saving everything I can. I would ask my parents for help if i had any, or maybe family members if i also had any, but damn i kinda don’t and it’s been suggested to me a few times to ask relatives and I… i would really like to…. i would, trust me. 

Thank you all SO MUCH for helping me pay for his vet visit and the medication already. If anyone could spare a few dollars to his x-ray (i haven’t got it done yet as I’ve taken him home to monitor him) I would really appreciate it.
My paypal is Naughty_ninja911@hotmail.com.  Anything helps! I’m going to do a fund raising stream soon here as well. If you already donated, or re-blogged before, I can’t thank you enough.

I know i’m a pathetic mess and i don’t deserve my bun boy, but thank you all so much, you’re all such amazing people and i’m a weak Canadian who cries a lot over peoples kindness. I want to give back, so let me draw you things at least… leave me suggestions.

the carnival doors open tonight
i was there & it was beautiful
the end is always amazing
i’ll put it in me and disappear like fireworks
