Do me a huge favour and REBLOG IF YOU DON’T CONDONE SHIP SHAME/SHIP WARS

We all have ships we don’t like. A lot of us even have ships we hate- but that doesn’t make it okay to tell someone not to ship something, and it certainly doesn’t make it alright to send someone hate/shame them for what they ship!

Ship wars can really hurt people, and leave lasting issues with fandom/shipping as a whole, or even drive people out of fandoms entirely! Tag blockers exist for a reason- so please reblog this to let folks know your blog is a safe space, and you’ll use them instead of sending hate!

at the moment I’m typing this (December 31st, 2016) a lot of joke posts about what year we’ll be starting tomorrow are going around. for folks with psychosis and dissociation, seeing a post that says “welcome to 2012!” can cause a lot of confusion, and potentially even lead to panic. If you are going to make/reblog posts that say any year other than 2017 (that is the year we are actually going into) please use some tag that indicates that it is in fact a joke. #misinformation should suffice.

I hope all my fellow people who have trouble with time and memory have a clear, non confusing end to 2016 and year of 2017!

Infighting in the Supergirl Fandom

The Supergirl fandom is filled with infighting over the femslash ships.  The show is feminist and this behavior of pitting women against women in the fandom makes it seem like no one is watching the same show.

I am thoroughly disgusted.  Folks are using the “but this particular person is fillng the ___ tag with hate and so I must retaliate!” excuse.  This is childish and we need to do better.

Let’s not be homophobic about others’ ships, okay?  You might not understand it, but so what?  Maybe people ship folks with different folks than you BECAUSE THEY ARE DIFFERENT THAN YOU and they IDENTIFY IN SOME WAY WITH THOSE CHARACTERS!

Can we act a little more heroic and compassionate in this fandom please?  Can we be inspired to be more like Supergirl?

Because it’s really refreshing for so many people to have a superhero show with legit queer characters that’s also led by women.  You can’t find that in every fandom, particularly for a show on a network that doesn’t always require paying for basic cable or premium channels.  So let’s look at this fandom for what it is, a REAL safe space for people who can’t always get what they want out of other fandoms, and just play nice?   Is that so hard?

You CAN look at a ship you don’t personally ship and see that the person who is excited by that ship is having fun in a fandom.  It’s not about the ship, but the people BEHIND the ship.

People playing in fandom are having fun.  Given the shit going on in the world, and probably in people’s personal lives, LET PEOPLE HAVE FUN.  So long as no one is doing anything bigoted/illegal, let them be.  We are all in this together.

tail:thicker then others and is a soft grey ending in light blue. a good mix of flowy and sleek his hip fins are more flowy then his tail tip fin. wears a lot of jewelry like rings on his tail and other body parts.
ears: he has small ear fins with piercings in the webbing
when it comes to humans: he doesn’t get all the hype. he doesn’t intentionally come in contact with them but doesn’t mind them when he does.
his voice: has the to have others see the future, usually tends to be something bad they need to fix or change to not get that outcome.
fault/weakness: inspects every ‘human’ object that comes his way before letting others from his ‘school’ mess with it, for safety reasons, he has some ‘battle’ wounds from doing this.
other: loves making others happy so much so he wont say no to those in his ‘school’ when asked to do something. loves praise and being with others. visits the others dispite things that could effect him negatively. hobi’s plants make his scales get all yucky with algae for some reason he thinks he is allergic and yoongi’s cave is to darn cold but he goes anyway.

tail: blue no purple no both? it depends on the light!
his tail would be sleek not to much extra though he would have to hip fins
his main tail fin would be quite large.
ears: he has larger ear fins with neck gills
when it comes to humans: oh they know he exists he is the perfect ‘tipical mermaid’ shape and his curiosity gets him in trouble he loves children as jin can’t use his voice to erase their memories of him. he is a legend to adults but a fact to kids. its unknown to the towns people why when one grows up they forget about him.
his voice: he has the textbook siren voice, makes others come to him and fall in love or become infatuated, those that hear his voice can do him no wrong.
faut/weakness: his voice does not work on those already in love. loves human children a little to much and loves when they come see him at the waters edge and bring him gifts. jin once caught him swimming with children. once saved a child from a ship wreck by giving them the gift of underwater breathing (a merfolk can give the gift of under water breathing by breathing into a being through the mouth) it saved the little girls life and to this day she is the only grown up who still knows he exists as jin lets her.
other: likes to decorate his tail and other areas with things he ‘borrows’ from his ‘school’ companions. loves making things for others. always asking questions and thinks of ways to surprise everyone and get them together. treasure seeker, first at a sunken ship, doesn’t mind saving humans. doesn’t understand how human things work and uses them for other purposes.

kookie-

tail: deep red with black and gold scales throughout. his tail is strong and he can swim for days at top speed. sleek for speed without extra fins though he has one on his back. his tail tip fin is quite short at first but ends up being white large when he becomes of age. had no gold in his tail until he became of age.
ears: he has small pointed human ears and neck gills that go all the way down each side of his neck, again before he became of age he didn’t have big gills like he does now. 
when it comes to humans: admires them for the things he doesn’t have but doesn’t go out of his way to see them. will NOT talk to humans and usually ends up leaving (swimming away) if spotted.
his voice: has the ability to make others follow his orders, was believed to not have a special ability until he became of age. unlike other mer-folk his ability works on other mer-folk and other mythical creatures.
fault/weakness: he sometimes can’t control his ability when he is emotional, though he isn’t emotional others can make him that way. he is sensitive to others emotions.
other: for some reason he likes wearing human clothes (the right way) and wears shirts and collects human clothes. always hungry but can’t cook. gets away with a lot of stuff others wouldn’t be able to. works them innocent eyes to get out of stuff. always watches his hyungs, admires them and helps them while learning himself.

trickstercheshi  asked:

I LOVE YOUR ART. Do you have any tips for making a witchsona? Yours is so cute!

Thank you! A witchsona is mostly like any other ‘persona’; you’re taking your personality and the things you like, and distilling it down within a theme, world, or guideline.
I suggest going through the witchsona tag for ideas and inspiration if you can’t think of anything right away. Witchsonas have a lot of variation because what qualifies as a ‘witch’ is different for each person. Some folks have been doing really mahou shoujo type witches (big fancy outfits and themed magical powers; like magical girls in a lot of anime) and others take a sorta harry potter route (less costume-y outfits, spells and magic have rules, more use of ‘traditional’ fantasy witch stuff). There are a few people who have also gone for a more realistic witch, focusing on witch-y aesthetics and real practices (tarot card reading, using herbs and stones, etc). You should choose whichever you like best, or that you think represents what kind of powers and abilities you’d want.

After deciding what kind of universe you’re adhering to, you gotta figure how you’ll look like, what kind of environment you’re in, your familiars, powers, etc. I’ve seen a lot of people that pick one or two themes and base their design around that (like this hella mushroom witch, or this trash witch). Some people reference their disabilities or interests (like this one with blood circulation problems, this one likes knitting, and this stock witch probably loves to cook). Some people draw themselves in clothing they already own (from jeans and a t-shirt, to lolita fashion), and others draw themselves in clothing they’d want to own. Familiars are usually people’s pets, their favourite animal, or a creature they feel matches their theme.

My witchsona is around the ‘harry potter esque’ mark. It follows a kind of mori girl aesthetic, both in the outfit I’m wearing and the heavy influence of nature themes. I imagine there’s more fantasy type creatures and plant/herb/blood/fairytale-ish magic than anything as flashy as the stuff that goes on in madoka or sailor moon. My familiars are my two pets hens.

Hope that helps!

#blackout

Okay non-black tumblr users I have had my fill. Yesterday was the black tumblr community’s day to celebrate their beauty in a society and media setting that typically doesn’t do an even halfway decent job at representing them. The point was not to be exclusionary, nobody is telling you not to blog your normal blog stuff and nobody is telling you that you can’t post pictures of yourself doing your thing on your blog! All they wanted was a day of celebration off themselves and the shitty side of white tumblr did everything they could to undermine that. White folks get literally every other fucking day of the year to have their likeness shoved in everybody’s face as the portrait of ideal beauty. White folks don’t need a day of celebration because literally every other day is a celebration of what you are! Staying off the fandom tags with fandom hate is a courtesy most of us can manage to observe and yet we lose it when black folks want to have a day of pride and celebration of their own selves. Now do I hope that there will come days in the not too distant future where Latinas, Asians, American Originals, and all other marginalized groups will designate a day for themselves to post selfies in celebration of their amazing lives? Fuck yeah! Hell, I would even be down for seeing and spreading love for causes like Fat Appreciation, Disabilities Appreciation, etc. But yesterday was not that day. Yesterday was for the black community and the black community should have been celebrated and given the right to celebrate without the bullshit that came with it. I am horrified and ashamed at every single one of you that participated in #whiteout or who gave shit to #blackout. Wish I could say I was even surprised.

That’s right, folks! We know what’s you’re thinking: “Finally, a blog dedicated to my favorite 13 year old author!” Trust us when we say we’re thinking the same thing.

Here are some things you can do to help this blog become the best source for anything Henry Mills related:

  • Follow us (it’s worth it).
  • Make some cool Henry Mills gifs/graphics/fanmixes/etc.
  • Tag your work with either “#henrymillsedit” or “#fuckyeshenrymills” so we can see it, and share it.
  • Spread this post so others can see it.
  • And if you’re a fandom blog, we’re looking for some affiliates! You can apply here.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to send one!
