literally my favorite hockey tumblr™ phenomenon is when zach boychuk does that thing on twitter where he just follows fucking Everyone out of nowhere in the middle of the night and every single post on my dash is vaguing him for it
T: We have a few things we enjoy a lot doing together. One of them is: Organizing!
T: It can be very relaxing, and fun at the same time! When we’re completely synchronizated, we can set up a party or any event in a matter of minutes. Rainbow Dash says that’s nerdy, but I think it is very cool!
P: Aaand the other thing we love to do… is dancing!
P: Nobody beat us when it comes to groovy moves! ~
T: Yeah, we grab all the attention when we dance together at parties!
ok so since I don’t watch the trashdred anymore and barely anyone on my dash does either; i do not understand 0.4% of what’s going on there anymore. apparently space is back? and ships are dying? and people are talking to each other through medical tubes idk what’s going on anymore remember when this show was good (aka remember when t100 s2 aired and things were aaight) because i don’t
when did the creators start snorting bath salts for breakfast when did that become a thing
Or, DCEU’s Superman is both heroic and hopeful, I wish people would get their heads out of their asses
So, I guess we’re here again. One two minute clip from the CW and my dash gets transported back in time. All of a sudden I gotta hear fandom Discourse™ all over again about how “at least this superman does heroic things.”
When I hear these things, the only thing I can honestly think of is - what fucking movie were you watching?
Let’s run down a list of heroic things that Superman/Clark Kent did in just the course of BVS:
Saved a girl from a burning building
Dragged a huge ass ship from where it was stuck in the ice
Saved people in a rocket ship when it was about to explode
Rescued people who were trapped from a flood
Helps get people to safety after that bomb explodes
Saved all of Metropolis from Doomsday
Saved LEX from Doomsday
SAVED THE ENTIRE FUCKING WORLD FROM DOOMSDAY???????? AT THE COST OF HIS OWN LIFE???????????????????
Like, I’m so confused?? HOnestly?????
He’s heroic is smaller ways, too, as Clark Kent. “The types of stories we tell matter,” he tells Perry White. He wants the Daily Planet to stand for something. When he gets blocked, he just goes on off on his own to investigate. Because it’s the right thing to do.
The whole fucking reason he warns Batman off is because he sees Batman as an affront to human dignity and the process of justice and fairness.
OSTENSIBLY WHAT HE THINKS IS HIS LAST BREATHE WHILE STARING UP AT A DERANGED DUDE DRESSED AS A BAT IS TO ASK TO SAVE THE LIFE OF HIS MOTHER LIKE
ARE Y’ALL WATCHING THE SAME MOVIE AS ME OR WHAT???????????
On the real though, the greatest, most heroic thing about this version of Superman, about MY version of Superman, is that he thinks about what it means to be good. What it means to do the right thing. He doesn’t take goodness for granted. Doesn’t assume that because he’s a Good Person™, then all his actions must be good too. He understands the sometimes terrifying meaning behind his power. He struggles with what being powerful as a god means in terms of goodness. He chooses to be good, time and time again - even when it really sucks, even when there’s an easier path, even when the world hates him.
This dude could be a god and he knows it and that fucking terrifies him. All that power and he doesn’t seek godhood.
He’s just a guy trying to do the right thing.
Fuck, man. What kind of heroic were are people looking for?
AU where CadMac babysit the Mane Six kids so we have the teenage sweethearts showing the tiny gay children what crushes are like imagine Big Mac brings Cadence some apple blossoms and candy so AJ does the same for Rarity (a crushed handful of flowers and a candy bar) and they see Cadence dress up all pretty for a date which Rarity then does for a play date with AJ (which probably ends badly considering the whole 'farm' thing but w/e) wholesome and pure
all of my yes for this, but i took some liberties hope u dont mind
ftw when you expect to get free ice cream but your friend is a dumbass
And, because I have so many incredible followers, I want to use this as an opportunity to tell a bunch of people how much I love them and how they’ve made my first fandom experience just amazing.

The Stranger Crew @promiseleven you’re the leslie knope of this fandom, i swear. your thoughtfulness, optimism, and enthusiasm never cease to amaze me & I am so happy to have you as a friend. @supercomsandeggos and @raesberri and @stranger-art-things i just can’t believe you three exist in the same universe that i do. you’re each so multi-talented; your art and your writing are so beautiful and unique and every time i see y’all on my dash my heart does a little dance. @strangerwhee11ers there is no one nicer than you in the entire fandom, i mean it. i always feel so welcome when talking to you and your sense of humour/punning abilities never fail to make me laugh. @baileytsample you are such a smart and endearing human and i’ve learned so much from your linguistics factoids. you’re angst is on point and you are such a good friend to everyone. so glad you’re part of this fandom @themikewheelers you’re a leader in this fandom and another multi-talented superstar with a stellar sense of humour and the fact that you are a fan of percy jackson just makes me giddy!

and there are so many other mutuals i love and admire from afar and who i want to know better. i’m honestly the worst at starting conversations though (i’m so dorky). i will honestly make a more concentrated effort to let you all know how much you mean to me. for the time being: follow these lovelies:
HEYO STAR WARS FAM! it’s me, calling from the other side. Lmao, I am so funny, rip. ANYWAY, there has been a LOT of negativity in the fandom lately and meanwhile, I am more than HAPPY that I do not have any part in it, I do see some of it on my dash. It makes me SAD &&. makes me think about how we used to be ( wow, cheesy ) when I joined, the fandom wasn’t like THIS but well, time never stops ( *fight the urge to athlete student meme this —* ). So, I know, I know - this post won’t change ANYTHING but I just wanted to do something to maybe cheer us all up a little. Negativity should not take over a fandom and should not be the reason people neglect their blogs. Have your Clique, have your faves as long as YOU feel comfortable because THAT is all that matters. And now, something bright &&. nice so yes, under the cut are some Positive Callouts!! happy reading and spread the positive vibes!

This mood board is dedicated to @becomeawendybird: for listening to me whine about it for days on end, and encouraging me not to abandon it.
Top Left: Secret
Garden AU Louis is spending the summer with Niall’s family in
Ireland, but one day he wanders a little far from their large estate. He’s
mesmerized by a locked, ivy-covered door he finds hidden among tall, overgrown
bushes. When he tries to ask Niall about it, he gets scolded and told never to
go back there. Unfortunately, Louis is nothing if not dangerously curious, so
he continues his pursuit of the mysterious place. He finds himself at the
nearly-abandoned mansion of Harry Styles, a recluse that nobody has seen in
years. Despite Harry’s attempts to scare Louis away, he keeps showing up every
day – asking about what’s behind the door, sneaking around Harry’s house in
search of clues, and unlocking little pieces of Harry’s guarded heart.
Neighbors AU Louis hasn’t met his new neighbor yet, even though it’s
been weeks since someone moved in to the identical flat next door. What he has
learned, however, is that this neighbor seems intent on proving his or her
worthiness to Louis in the form of gifts on his front step: baked goods
(‘because I had extra!’), small trinkets (‘thought this was cool’), even a lone
flower taped to the door with a note that said ‘just appreciating the beauty
around here’. Each note is only signed with “-your neighbor. xx” Louis chalks
it up to an overly friendly (and possibly lonely) elderly woman. One night,
Louis goes out to a club where he meets Harry – incredibly gorgeous,
can’t-believe-his-luck, Harry. They mutually decide to leave together, and
imagine Louis’ surprise when the taxi pulls up in front of Louis’ own door. Cue
some mild confusion and cute realizations.
Do you or your followers know a fic where Sherlock and John realise they are characters in someone else’s story (in the spirit of the Sherlockian game) and set themselves free in some way? Does a fic like this exist?
ACTUALLY, I just passed one on my dash this morning, haven’t read it yet but it comes highly recommended, hang on….
Who I Want To Be by hubblegleeflower(G, 3131 w.|| Meta Fiction, RPF Elements, Fourth Wall Breaking, S4 Fix It Fic) – What happens when your author writes you wrong? When someone else has the power to decide who you really are? Does it matter?
I’m sure there are a tonne of others… Anyone have any they can think of?
I've been thinking for the past year that the things that upset me the most about the stunt/closet/bearding situation is (apart from Louis and Harry's happiness obviously) the reaction from antis, media and even my dash. We're just always in a circle of negativity. When something "bad" happen, the media does an het article, larries talk about it, antis say things about us or send us message, we talk about it. and it's always like that we let the media and antis entering our space --> ugliness
Agreed 100%. The fandom itself is the hardest part of fandom. It’s tearing itself apart. That’s why I had to reevaluate things and try to only focus on the good stuff. Or at least find SOME sort of joy in the bad. I can’t COMPLETELY ignore everything that’s happening because that’s just not the person I am, but I can at least try to find something good within a situation. Because to me the good still does outweigh the bad.
when I started shipping it if I did: I want to say it was late last year / early this year??? I saw a random rosaxgina photoset on my dash and then went on the tag and that was it!
my thoughts: I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. THEY NEED TO GET TOGETHER ASAP. WHY HAVEN’T WE GOTTEN ANY PLOTS WITH JUST THE TWO OF THEM???????????????????????
what makes me happy about them: I love that Rosa laughs at everything Gina says/does and that Gina hangs around Rosa constantly! I love that they have a secret bathroom at the precinct! I love that they’re both strong badass women, who can strike fear in the hearts of all! They would seriously be such a power couple, y’all.
what makes me sad about them: That they’re probablyyyyy not going to end up together in canon. Just because. RIP.
things done in fanfic that annoys me: How about the fact that there ISN’T ENOUGH DIANETTI FANFIC IN THE WORLD????? Lol! No really though, I don’t think there’s enough for me to pinpoint a trend I don’t dig!
things I look for in fanfic: ANYTHING REMOTELY DIANETTI BECAUSE I AM TRASH? But specifically I live for: Gina being snarky and Rosa turning into a softie because of / around Gina.
who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: Tbh I wouldn’t have minded Rosa ending up with Marcus! They were super sweet when they were together, and Marcus was a great minor character. (But also, can we take a sec to appreciate that he’s #confirmed to be Debbie’s son - since in Your Honor we find out that Laverne only raised two kids?? It makes perfect sense now that he was so emotional about a TV commercial for a refrigerator!) Idk who I’m chill with Gina ending up with tho…
my happily ever after for them: ROSA & PIMENTO BREAK UP. ROSA & GINA GET TOGETHER SHORTLY AFTER. ROSA GETS OVER HER FEAR OF MARRIAGE && THEY HAVE A CRAZY CHOREOGRAPHED DANCE AT THEIR WEDDING. ALSO: GINA GETS TO BE THE GREAT DAD SHE THOUGHT SHE WOULD BE.
who is the big spoon/little spoon: I’m thinking Rosa would be the Big Spoon! I can see her being very protective of Gina (largely because of the whole Gina not being a cop thing, but also because she’s already almost lost her once - twice if you count the time she was taken hostage), and I think she’d totally want to hold her close and keep her safe even when asleep.
what is their favorite non-sexual activity: TARGET SHOOTING AT A RANGE. NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. Gina would love getting to fire a gun for once. Rosa would show her the ropes between getting some practice of her own. They’d both be so Into It.
