Hi I'm fairly new to the twrp scene but am VERY much into it and I'm still in that stage where I just wanna know everything possible about the band. I was wondering, obviously I'll respect the bands wishes, but do you know the reason why anything pre-device is not "canon"? Or like at all findable on the internet? I'd like to see their evolution but I respect that they have their vision now I guess

Hi there! Welcome to Hell!

TWRP believe Pre-Device is misrepresentation of their current forms and vision, to put it shortly. If you’d like to read more on why right from the camel (Doctor Sung)’s mouth, please take a look at this /r/TWRP reddit comment thread.

If you ever have any more questions, feel free to drop us a line at any time or take a look through our tag #Space Mail! It may already have answer. If you’d like a more condensed version, we also have an #FAQ tag.

sonata-k  asked:

How was squick used? Like would you tag something you didn't want to see or comment "X is my squick because of Y"?

For the original ask, requesting the definition of squick, please see this post.

Squick is a fun term that was often used as both a noun and a verb. Either X was one of your squicks, or X squicked you, or squicked you out, or squicked you hard.

It was often used in fic exchanges. They would ask for a list of your squicks so that the gifting author would know not to include any hint of them. It was also used in casual conversation with fandom friends, authors, artists, etc. It could be left in comments, or as a reason you just didn’t read your best fandom friend’s latest fic. “Sorry, bff, you know I love your writing, but you have X tagged at the top, and that just squicks me out.” “Hey, no worries, best reader friend! I totally get it. Give this one a pass, but I’ll send you a note when I post my next one! I promise it will be totally X-free!”

Here’s the thing though. In your example, you explain why X is your squick with Y. But the beauty of squick was that (at least in my experience) no explanation was necessary. Not only was it not necessary, it was rarely asked for. A squick is a squick, and there doesn’t have to be any rhyme or reason. In fact, why would you have a rational, bullet-pointed, well-thought-out argument as to why something squicked you out? Very often it’s a visceral reaction, and if you don’t like the thing, you’re likely not going to sit and do deep meditation on why not.

Squicks were respected by fandom. You don’t like the thing, okay, we will tag the thing appropriately, you do not have to read the thing, no judgments on either side. There was no fandom policing, only respect.

And this, I think, is super important, because fandom policing is a problem, especially when it comes to triggers. “Trigger” has become so overused, so all-encompassing, that people feel they have to defend their legitimate triggers. If X triggers you, it triggers you, and you DO NOT need to provide an explanation. But because “trigger” is so often used in place of “squick,” some people feel they have the right to “call out” those who use the word. They want explanations, they want you to tell them what that triggering concept does to you, so they can call bullshit and feel superior. You don’t have to explain either your squicks or your triggers, but using the correct word stops the fandom police from feeling as though they have the right to ask.

Bring “squick” back, people. Don’t devalue triggers, which are horrible, nasty, dangerous things.

have you ever experienced that feeling where you fall in love with your otp all over again? like everyone loves their otps as they progress slowly and they slowly fall in love with them, but then while reading fanfic or watching fanvids or just sitting around but you’re suddenly hit by how beautiful and amazing your otp is all over again and just how far they’ve come and every reason why you ship them and it just makes you emotional and want to cry in the middle of the room and it’s fucking wonderful

Here’s a thought

*This post has spoilers from Zelda botw, the divine beasts.*

So I was doing the boss battle for Divine beast Naboris (the Thunderblight) and I noticed that this was the only Blight I couldn’t beat by just stuffing them with arrows. In fact arrows were completely useless against them. 

That got me thinking. 

Wouldn’t a Blight with this fighting style be better against Revali, who’s primary weapon is a bow, instead of Urbosa? It seemed like an odd choice on Gannon’s part. Then I realised, the Tunderblight fights with a short sword and shield, which is the exact weapons that Urbosa fought with and that you get given after defeating the divine beast. Then I realised, it’s the exact same for every other divine beast. 

Mipha excels at fighting with a spear, the Waterblight also fights with a spear.

 Daruk fights with a heavy weapon, which for Link to carry requires two hands but I’m pretty sure Daruk could handle with one. 

Which would again match the Fireblight’s weapon.

Revali fights with a bow and the Windblight’s main weapon also fire’s projectiles at you. Heck it even copies Revali’s Gale in creating it’s own tornadoes. 

Even the Thunderblight can summon lighting just like Ubosa’s fury. Along with the same weapons as I mentioned before.

Gannon’s not fighting fire with water. He’s fighting fire with fire. He’s copied the four champions and created better versions of them. Better versions that could defeat them in their acclaimed strongest skill. The skill that supposedly no one else could beat them in.

He’s humiliating them. 

Revali is no longer the best bowman “even among the Rito”. Mipha’s spearmanship “in a class all its own” has met it’s match. And because the champions lacked the diversity of using a range of different weapons they couldn’t counter the overwhelming strength with a different style. It’s almost as if Gannon is teaching them a lesson. Not to be too overconfident in their own skill. After all “Jack of all trades, master of none, but is oftentimes better than master of one.” Which Is why you (Link) have a much better chance at defeating them.

So does that shed new light on Gannon’s character? 

You probably new at least half of this already. Anyway thanks for reading if you made it to the end. 

unacceptable (yet common) behavior seen when going through ishida-sensei’s tag on twitter →


(the order of tweets is from bottom to top)


i can list multiple reasons on why this is completely unacceptable behavior:

1) don’t harass the creator on what they can or can’t do, this should be common sense
2) complain about something that has happened/is possibly implied in a chapter that’s not legally released yet (in other words, directly telling the creator that you illegally read their unreleased work for free)
3) don’t ever make light of suicide, that’s absolutely disgusting and disrespectful
4) don’t speak as if you represent a whole, not all “stans” agree with you or your methods
5) acting like a child will do nothing; do you honestly think the creator is going to take into consideration what you said and make changes to appease you specifically, just because you’re upset?


…and the results for this kind of behavior →

(taken from the account’s header)

(amazing.)

what can’t you believe? why are you shocked?

you continuously harassed an individual and made light of suicide. how could you possibly think there won’t be any consequences for that type of behavior.

(also having the creator block you isn’t something to be proud of, so i have no idea why you would place this as your header for everyone to see…)



note: please be a decent human being and stop harassing ishida-sensei on twitter (despite his impossible work schedule, he’s still a human being). everything you tweet to him in english represents the entire western fandom in some aspect, so please take that into consideration before you tweet at him.

this behavior really needs to stop.

Fandom Fic Rec Days

The Fandom Fic Rec Days are back!

It is easy to make people look at art; all you need is a reblog. But when it comes to make people want to read fanfiction, it can get just a little more tricky.

To give writers more recognition, and to celebrate their stories, we’ve decided to organize the Fic Rec Days.

On February 10th, 11th, and 12th, you’re invited to rec your favourite fics, from the all time faves to the WIPs you’re currently enjoying.

How? In any way you want!

  • Create a post saying why people should read the fic!
  • Draw some fanart!
  • Create graphics/aesthetics!
  • Make a fic rec list!
  • Make a mix!
  • And so on.

Anything, really; there’s no way of rec’ing worth less than another.

This way, you will:

  1. Promote writers’ fics, and maybe get them new readers.
  2. Make their day, they will be super happy!
  3. Maybe encourage them to write more (win-win!)

Any rules/extra information?

  • Tag your posts with #ficrecdays
  • Tag your fandom/ship.
  • You can always queue if you’re not available!
  • Readers, please consider leaving a comment on the fics you liked!

Above all else, have fun, make people happy (writers and new readers alike!)

Reblog to spread the word, and see you then! :D

Writing is Hard, part 6: SEX

Summary: Dean and the reader have sex. Finally. FINALLY.

Read Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5

Warning: Smut

Word Count: 4250ish

A/N: This is all written with love for fan fic. I’m teasing, not putting it down in any way. And the quotes are from my own Faking It series, in case anyone was curious. Hope you enjoy! (Sorry, tag list is closed!) XOXO


“You knew he didn’t quite understand why you found it so hot, but Dean had never seen himself leaning over the engine in a tight, sweaty t-shirt, hands and forearms covered in grease as he worked.”

Dean’s outside working on the Impala, and you’re reading fics about just that. Apparently, Dean working on the Impala is the hottest thing to ever grace the fandom (aside from his lips…and his green eyes…and his cocky swagger that is really just hiding adorable and unnecessary insecurity…and Jesus, these people are thorough), and you’re curious. In your actual experience with Dean, working on the Impala is just a nuisance. You have to wait longer to get on the road, Dean takes forever to scrub himself clean afterward, and for the next few hours, everything smells like metal and oil covered up by motel soap. Why do people find that so hot?

Forty Minutes Later

You read an article a few weeks ago about something called ‘dry drowning’. At the time, the prognosis seemed so strange. Whenever you heard the word 'drowning’, you associated it with water. That’s why you couldn’t comprehend how it could happen on land. It took a quick Google search to inform you that dry drowning was the lungs’ inability to extract oxygen from the air; it could happen just as easily on land as it could in the water.

As you sit on the floor with your arms still wrapped tightly around your body and your legs fast asleep, you realize that you’re drowning. The world is blurring into shapes you can’t make out and bright colors that make your eyes hurt. Your head is spinning. And your heart, oh your heart, it’s aching with loss. Abandonment. Rejection.

Rejection is a feeling you don’t know very well and one that is quite literally making you sick to your stomach. By avoiding relationships, you’ve avoided this. But there was only so long you could last before it found you. You might be biased or inexperienced, but you’re almost certain that it has sensed your vulnerability like a dog sniffs out fear and is using that to its advantage. It sees you trapped out in the ocean trying to keep yourself afloat and it’s like a merciless wave that refuses to let you get your bearings before knocking you under the surface again.

have you ever finished a book or show and just had the strongest longing to be a part of that universe, where you have special abilities like them and friendships like them, and sure life is hard there but you know you’re special, you’re valuable, and that everything will be okay in the end

…anyways, @white fandom (and otherwise uninformed peeps): please stop using mcclain as lance’s last name in VLD fanworks. why?

  • it is literally not his canon last name in VLD. he literally does not have an official one yet for the VLD canon. mcclain isn’t his name.
  • he is freaking cuban. even IF for some reason they made the conscious decision to give him a white last name (lbr here, they won’t lmao), it couldn’t be mcclain because that name literally does not exist in any cuban genealogy records, try again.
  • it literally comes from a different voltron canon version of lance where he was white. he was a white dude. that is his name from when he was a white dude in canon. it is white-washing. insisting VLD lance should be called mcclain is like insisting on calling VLD shiro by sven or using holgersson for his last name. that’s not him. that’s not their canon. and they aren’t white. you’re not doing it to shiro so don’t do it to lance.
  • and because of all of that it’s lowkey racist to keep insisting on using mcclain ESPECIALLY when latinx fans from various walks of life (ESPECIALLY cubans, who y’all seem hellbent on ignoring or shutting down when it comes to THEIR representation found in a CUBAN character) have asked y’all to stop using it and use a hispanic last name for VLD lance instead.
  • aaaand that’s p much it end of the dang discussion folks lmao

if you’re gonna at me, combat me. but if you really do insist on shouting about why i’m wrong for some (racist) reason, at least read my other more in-depth post about all this that probably answers the exact question/reason you were gonna hit me with anyways. don’t be willfully ignorant or compliant just cause this seems like a tiny lil issue to y’all. own up.

🌱hello! I’m roro, your local free-range latina 🌿this is my first “bujo” post • idk why i choose to finally be organized in the end of april but you know, late is better than never •

Even if you never listen to any other thing I have to say, please listen to this:

Stop disparaging your work.

No matter what form it takes, prefacing your work with phrases like, “This sucks; This is probably bad; I’m not a good writer/artist/creator but I did this anyway,” is a two-edged knife and both sides are lethal.

On the one hand, putting yourself down rots away not only any self-esteem you do have, but any you might be trying to build. If the most constant voice in your life – your own – tells you you’re awful, you’ll never be any good, why bother when so-and-so is ‘better’ or such-and-such is ‘more popular’ guess what? You’ll start believing that voice. And, chances are, you’ll stop creating anything at all, because why bother?

The other deadly edge of the knife is that if you’re putting work out there – and I see this all the time – with tags or artist’s/author’s notes that say, “This probably sucks,” or variants, many people won’t give it a chance. They will never even click the read more or the link that might let them make up their own minds because you’ve already told them it’s not worth their time. People are pretty susceptible to suggestion. If you start them off with the thought, “This is going to suck,” even those who do click that read more will be predisposed to see the flaws you’ve prepared them for and think poorly of your effort.

Stop disparaging your own work.

I know it’s hard. I do. Putting yourself out there where anyone can see and anyone can say anything is so terrifying. Creative work is personal. It often leaves us feeling particularly vulnerable. When we’re vulnerable and afraid of being hurt, we often get defensive even before anything bad has been said. A lot of the time, that defensiveness comes out as self-deprecation.

Nothing is ever perfect. Everything has flaws. That’s part of what makes each creation unique. Some people will love your work. Others won’t. That goes with the territory. Make art for the audience who’ll love you, not the ones who won’t. Above all – and I cannot stress this enough – make sure that you are part of that first audience. That starts by not putting yourself down in the instant you put yourself out there.

Creating work is challenging and scary and wonderful and brave. Letting other people see that work? Even more so. Keep working. Keep learning. Keep failing and trying and failing and trying; that’s the only way any of us learn and grow and change and get better. 

But most of all? Stop putting yourself down. You deserve better than that. Yes. You do. You really, truly do.
