why does it take me so damn long to make gifsets

Take a Chance

The gifset of Dean giving himself that little pep talk from 7x04 inspired me to write this. Dean x Reader, Dean’s POV. Hope you like :)

For fuck’s sake, Dean, you’ve done this a thousand times. You can charm a woman without even breaking a sweat. Why are you so damn nervous?

Because, dumbass, it’s Y/N. This time it’s not some random bar chick that I’ll probably never lay eyes on again. And I don’t want to mess things up. I don’t want to do something that’ll make everything all awkward.

I just want… I just want to be with her. Whatever that means. And I don’t even know how to say that without making things all fucking weird.

Just tell her the truth. Well, the surface truth. Say you’re bored. Take a chance.

She doesn’t need to know you hate being in a separate room from her, that you miss being around her. That you feel not all there when she’s not around, like a piece is missing. That you’re dying to touch her. Like really touch her.

Okay. Here’s her door. Just heard a noise, so you know she’s awake. So knock already.

Time After Time: Peg O’ My Heart

Summary: If it were up to Dean, he’d never travel through time again. But no matter how many times he bitched about it, his ass always ended up in the past. Chasing after the Greek god of time, Chronos, Dean gets zapped back to 1943, where he shot a Nazi,  and met the legendary Steve Rogers and James ‘Bucky’ Barnes.
Characters in this chapter: Dean Winchester, Steve Rogers, Anrim Zola, Peggy Carter
Characters mentioned: Chronos
Word count: 1,359
Warnings: Time travel, canon violence, language, major canon divergence [it’s an AU / crossover folks]
Author’s note: Inspired by this GIFset. Thank you @deansdirtylittlesecretsblog [AKA @captain-rogers-beard ] and @climbthatmooselikeatree for listening to me babble on end about this. Your patience and help means so much more than you can imagine. GIF credit [x] GIFs found on Google

PREVIOUSLY ON TIME AFTER TIME:

“So, spill already. What bucket of syrup did you two blockheads step into?” Peggy knows Steve, knows that if there’s something amiss, Steve will have already dove head first into the fray.

“We need your help, Peg,” Steve breathes, willing himself to not grab the woman he loves and kiss her senseless. “Seems we got a time traveller running around.”

Both men take notice of the sparkle that lights up Peggy’s face. “Delightful.”


Sammy,

I’m in 1943, man. Time travel, again. My favorite. You ready for what’s next? I’m working with Steve Rogers. Yeah, dude. Captain fucking America! It’s crazy. I don’t even know if it’s real or if I’m stuck in some weird dream world.

Whoever you and I started hunting, I think Steve is, too. Huh. Still hasn’t sunk in. I’m working with Steve Rogers. Oh, and his friend… Bucky! Man, it’s weird seeing him without a metal arm. I’m trying not to say too much, but I already let the Avengers slip. I know, I know… time travel is tricky and shit like that.

Right now, I’m at Carter’s Tailoring in Brooklyn. It’s mainly a front for the beginning of SHIELD, I think. Because there’s no way a shop this small and tucked away makes enough cash to stay open. Steve’s girl, Peggy, is helping, doing some research into what’s happening.

Wait… isn’t Peggy the one Steve loves? Shit, it is, and I just hit on her. Fuck, I’m an idiot.

Steve pushes his head through the curtain. “Got something.”

“Right behind you,” Dean gruffs.


Peggy turns the book around, showing Dean what she and Steve found. “It’s the infinite hourglass.”

“That’s the symbol I saw on his ring,” Dean confirms.

“Yeah, that’s the mark of Chronos,” Peggy adds, watching Dean closely, see if there’s any kind of recognition in his eyes.

The war had brought all kinds of supernatural forces to the front line, none scarier than Red Skull. He was ruthless, without remorse or conscience, obliterating everything, everyone in his path. He wanted to rule the world, even if that meant being the only survivor.

Dean shakes his head. “Who?”

“The god of time,” Steve answers, sounding less than enthusiastic about someone other than Jesus Christ himself marching around, calling themselves God.

Requests  Masterlist

You blended in with the multitude of other marvel blogs, you got a few notes and messages but didn’t think much of it, it was just a bit of fun, a way to wind down after long missions. That was until you were attending comic con with Pietro, Clint and Wanda and the interviewer got onto the subject of fans.

The pretty blonde leaned closer with the mic, “Do you have any idea of how big your fan base is?”

“Tony gets truckloads of hate mail, does that count?” Clint smirked and the interviewer giggled.

“Pietro you’re especially popular on tumblr,” the interviewer carried on and Pietro gave her a smug grin and shifted about in his chair to lean closer to her, his chest puffing up a little more.

“Really?” he was obviously trying to sound coy but you and Wanda rolled your eyes at each other.

“There’s quite a lot of fan fiction about you, it can get pretty…graphic…”

“You got me interested now." 

"What is this tumblr?”

Clint groans,“It’s the one Tony has the secret blog on, he’s probably read all that fan fiction.”

Reasons to ship Mark with (almost) everyone

– Disclaimer, this post is pretty long. –

I just kind of ship Mark with almost everyone (Ten and Yuta are the only exceptions, I haven’t seen them interact much yet) and tbh I made this post so I wouldn’t have to keep explaining why I ship Mark with a certain person lmao. I hope this post will inspire you to ship Mark with everyone because he’s a very shippable human and he deserves love from all of the members~ (((Jaemin also isn’t included because I haven’t seen many interactions between him and Mark yet I apologise to the few MarkMin that exist because I’ve only met like 2 but if you know where to find any MarkMin moments pls enlighten me. Same thing for TenMark and YuMark, send me MarkMin, YuMark and TenMark)))

Respect Fanartists & Fanfiction Writers

Listen, and do so carefully… because this will be said once. 

Fanartists & Fanfiction Writers put a LOT of time, effort, emotion and skill into making things that you enjoy for free, friends. 

Sure, it takes you a minute to stare at artwork that someone spent weeks on; or 15 minutes tops to skim through a fic that may have taken days… so you just see it as something to be consumed, and in a lot of frustrating cases, your RIGHT to have provided.

For one, providing feedback in the form of comments or reviews/asks is always appreciated. That’s awesome and we love it!

Sending ask after ask or Private Message after Private Message demanding they make you something specific… NOT okay. 
OR, worse, falsely befriending them in order to get them to make you free art/fiction, is alternatively what the creative side of the fandoms calls ‘a dick move’.

See, here’s the thing… if you are friends with someone, you are there for them.
If you friend them with the ulterior motive of getting them to draw you a specific picture, or comic, or write you a highly-detailed fanfiction… then you are being a manipulative drain on their life.

Like, listen… even if someone reblogs a ‘Writing/Art Prompt’ post, you cannot sincerely anticipate they will answer every single request they get. There might be duplicates, the person receiving them may not like one received, they may lose energy or focus, or just be busy with the real world.
To harass, to send additional follow-up asks bothering people? Not okay. 

It used to happen more frequently in the past, but it’s rising up again.

Consistent harassment of the creative sides of fandom (encompasses gifmakers, SFM makers, all the types, etc.) just drains the creative batteries worse than a lack of comments/reviews on new art/fiction does.

It puts them under pressure to fulfil your demand, which is not okay.
Hell, assholes in certain fandoms used to do CALLOUT posts on artists and writers who didn’t fulfil the requests they demanded. It was ridiculous?

Let’s not go back there.

-

So here’s the thing. 

>You like their artstyle? Yes.
<You would like them to draw you something? Oh yes!
>Are they doing commissions, or would they be willing to do one? They are open to commissions/Oh, I will politely ask.
<They are open to commissions and you can afford what you want?
a)Yes (Proceed)
b) No. You can save up to commission them later. YOU WILL NOT HARASS THE ARTIST FOR FREE ART (that includes trying manipulative tactics such as making up sob stories, falsely befriending them, and/or claiming you don’t trust internet banking options*).
[*If you distrust paypal, or certain sites, you can actually buy preloaded/disposable credit cards (which are basically gift cards), that you can put the required amount on and use to pay. There are alternatives, just ask.]

>>>You can afford it, and what you are asking fits what the artist has said they are comfortable drawing for you? Yes.
~Ask them if they are happy to take this commission and provide the details necessary.
~Accept that it will take time, and effort, don’t hover trying to get them to finish it faster. 
~Do not try to change the deal mid-way through the commission.
E.g. if you paid for greyscale, don’t demand colour, or one character but now you want too for the same price, or withhold payment until you get your way. That is a major dick move, and your name will circle through the artistic sphere as ‘difficult’ and ‘untrustworthy’. 

There have been a few notable people out there that have tried to get free art this way, and thought artist-hopping would make sure no one found out. But, buddy, if you know one artist, they know ten more, and it branches out from there… who do you think has the most feedback for creators, but other artists and writers? They will all find out, eventually.

>Not being able to afford it, it not a good excuse to hound the artist to change their prices. Listen, if you’re at the store and can’t afford the new action figure you want… you can’t haggle with the poor storeclerk at the counter (but numerous people have tried that? Is that where you have learned this from?) for a ‘better price’. 

You might counter, ‘but the clerk can’t set the price and an artist can’. Listen, lissen here fucko mccoconuts, the artists on tumblr charge an obscenely low pittance for the amazing art they do… like, barely anything. 
A coloured sketch? Some artists will do it for five bucks because they’re too goddamn afraid you whiny little bastards won’t agree to anything more; they are downselling their hard-earned artistic abilities.

And fanfiction authors? They have to do it for free because NO ONE pays for writing. Ask, and they will tell you almost all fanfiction commissions fall through, for one reason or another… but mostly the idea is considered absurd.

If you cannot afford it now, then either save, or maybe ask if the artist is open to a payment plan. E.g. If you requested a five-page comic at $60 coloured, by the way an obscenely low price compared to real-world prices, you could ask to pay it in two lots, or something of that nature. It depends on each artist as to whether they are amenable to it. Never assume.

>Not being able to afford it does not mean, ‘befriend the person and try to feed them your headcanons in the hopes of free art’ (nor the old, ‘so my birthday’s coming up… do you think you could make me _____?’). 
If that’s the whole reason you have ‘befriended’ them (manipulated them into thinking you are genuinely offering altruistic friendship) then you’re an absolute cactus, mate. A conglomeration of pricks, that is to say. 

You don’t make friends to get things. And if you do, perhaps you need to re-evaluate your priorities, you drongo bastards, people are human beings not vending machines. 

Sometimes, if an artist or writer gets inspired by the stupid headcanons you share at 3am your time and like 9am their time… accidental art or fanfiction happens. It’s spontaneous, fun, a gift based on mutual feedback and conversation. But to anticipate being rewarded simply for your friendship, is wrong.

ESPECIALLY, and I cannot stress this enough, especially if  you try to feed the artist a headcanon… then ceaselessly pester them as to why they haven’t made the fiction/fanart of it yet? Everyday? What the fuck is your problem?

-

>Why is it so expensive?
It isn’t. It really fucking isn’t. I’ve covered this.
Also, everyone is so damn quick to say “But art is haaaaaard” when told to draw something themselves, because an artist doesn’t want to, but just as fast to question why that artist (who has learned that skill and ceaselessly practised until they have their own artstyle that you like enough to think about commissioning) is charging you MONEY for something you WANT (not NEED).

You will not actually die if you don’t get a pic of your OTP fucking in a jacuzzi, suzy. So just calm ya tiddies and carry on.

>Why won’t you draw my headcanon?
Did you commission the artist? No? Then fuck off. They have their own life and ideas… and if you harass them, others who are less polite are going to have something to say about it. Especially the adults who pressure young artists to make them shit all the time… you will be found and shamed you bastards.

>Why won’t you write my detailed headcanon?
Same as above. But also, aren’t you the person who keeps saying ‘but writing is easy’? How about you write it yourself. One of the many things you will be told to do to yourself if you don’t stop pestering writers. 

That goes for bothering writers/artists here, on AO3, ff.net, DeviantArt or any random site they’re affiliated with. 

- - - -

The biggest question is what makes you feel so ENTITLED to their work?

And that’s really what it is.
“I want it. Make it for me.”

Oh sure, you can cover it in pretty words, “But we’re friends”, “But I can’t afford it”, “But I’m feeling so down recently, maybe this elaborate 15k OTP headcanon I want you to write will make things better, don’t skimp on the smut! XD”

…it all amounts to, “Hey, you should reward me for liking your art/writing. If I do not get it immediately, without cost, I will pester you either brazenly, or subtly… I may even pretend to be a genuine friend, to get what I want. You owe it to me.”

And, really, from the bottom of the creative community’s hearts, I’d love to just remind each and every person who feels this way… that you are not a good person, at heart, and can fuck right off out past alpha centauri where such disrespect might be considered flattering… because it sure as hell isn’t on earth.

-

Fanartists, Fanfiction writers, put up with this all the time.

It’s the sixteen asks they don’t publish, all demanding things.

It’s the excitement cut short when they thought they had a new fic review, but it’s actually just someone trying to get them to write them something.

It’s the person in your chat always giving headcanons, many you don’t agree with, and then checking in to see if you’ve drawn/written them. Relentlessly.

It’s the Private Messages, dozens of them, requesting you do something specific for someone, something that will require time and effort on your part but not theirs. And the angry messages that follow if you turn down their demands.

It’s the angry ‘callout’ posts from people who you’ve said No to. The people who were told, “I’m not taking requests, but if you would just see my commission post for details…” and were abhorred at the idea of PAYING for ART they WANT????

And more. There is always more, worse, unending, frustrating.

This goddamn barrage hits some more than others. Some acquiesce for the sake of peace, but it will not end if they do; because once someone gets free art, or fiction, they’ll demand again and again and again…

- - - 

And as you can imagine, like a ceaseless cascade of waterfall over a cliff-face, eventually it erodes the joy, the fun, the creativity of your art or writing, or any of the other artistic abilities (e.g. gifsets, photomanips, videos, animations, etc.)

But the reality is, these groups (plus the whole gamete of other creative types out there) are putting time, effort and skill into making something; whether it’s free or a commission, and you need to respect that.

-

So please, be kind to the people who are putting their abilities out there, often entirely free, for the sake of enjoying something they love with the rest of the fandom. Respect them, don’t demand, and remember that a comment on what you enjoyed about their work can mean the world of encouragement.

Thank you.

Tattoo Artist!Jin

So before I start this, I just wanna say a hu g e thank you for 3,800 followers my mind is completely blown I can’t thank you all enough, I do have some things planned for the next celebration, whatever it will be, I have some things waiting for it so for now I’ll just say thank you from the bottom of my heart, onto the post, I’ve gotten a couple requests to finish the tattoo artist series so I thought I would do that today, to start us off as he always does is our beloved oldest member, the sweetie pie with the cutest laugh like I love when laughs are really unique and goofy and I love his laugh with all of my heart tbh, Kim Seokjin aka Jin

  • So for this series, Yoongi, Namjoon, Jimin and Jungkook’s parts have all been done so I’ll just be finishing the series off with the remaining hyung line and Tae
  • I’ll be starting with visuals as I usually do bc I love visuals they help paint the story, especially with something like this
  • So I gotta bring in black hair!Jin bc that shit is so nice it’s top quality like the Japanese MV for Danger is still one of my favorite looks on Jin they did that boy righT
  • I mean let’s be real Jin always looks good like he’s sat out in a jungle looking niCe and being a super cutie but black hair!Jin just has a special place in my heart 
  • But also pink haired!Jin makes a lot of appearances in tattoo artist!Jin’s world bc that was a l o o k will I ever be over it probably not
  • Onto the tattoos portion, he does have quite a few tattoos, each and every single one means something to him and their placement is for a very specific reason he’s never gone out and just been like give me something random wherever
  • Lil head canon that Namjoon is the one that gives him his first tattoo bc Namjin
  • He’s got one full sleeve and then his other arm has a half sleeve that he’s still working on he isn’t sure if he wants to complete it yet so he’s taking his time with it (hi remember that one recent gifset of Jin in a tank top just envision that for a second add some tattoos and join me in my internal screaming) and probably a leg tattoo like one on his calf and another on his ankle
  • He has a lip piercing bc his lips are so cute and pouty and if you look up punk!Jin edits pretty much every single one has Jin with a lip piercing it’s such a good head canon
  • Most people don’t even know Jin has tattoos bc he wears a lot of long sleeves, he isn’t hiding them at all, he’s just cold but he’s more than happy to sit down with them and explain some of the tattoos
  • His tattoo shop would be s o fucking cute though
  • I feel like Jin has more of a modern meets tradition vibe going on so it’s got a modern base but then vintage accents like the paintings on the wall are all vintage but then he has top quality computers that were given to him from the boys as their gift to him for opening the shop
  • I also feel like that would be reflected in his tattoo style, either a more classic tattoo with modern twists or vice versa
  • He does a lot of written tattoos, he does a lot of floral tattoos, some portraits here and there
  • Jin is a really friendly person Jin is that person you can just sit down next to and start talking to like he’s got this really warm look to him his eyes are really warm and his smile is soft and his voice is soothing so he can make customers feel right at home
  • That’s one of his major goals, he wants people to come in and be calm he wants them to be able to sit in the shop and just relax and not get too nervous bc getting a tattoo is obviously a huge deal for a lot of people, especially when it’s the first tattoo
  • He’s always really really patients with his customers, if they decide halfway into the design they don’t wanna do it anymore, he totally understands, he tells them he’ll save the designs if they ever wanna come back and do it like he never flips out of them if they change the design while he’s making it or they decide they want it in a different place right as he’s setting all of the inks up
  • He knows how it feels to be on the opposite side, he knows how nervous he was for his first tattoo and that if it hadn’t been Namjoon who did it, he probably would’ve never gotten it 
  • Lil head canon here that he always has snacks around the shop like cookies
  • You two meet when your best friend decides to get a tattoo so you go along for support plus you’re kinda curious about the cute tattoo artist you’ve heard so much
  • Anyone who’s gotten a tattoo from Jin is forever going on about how nice he is and how handsome he is and how it looks like a model is doing your tattoo for you so you’re pretty damn interested in seeing what he looks/acts like
  • They definitely weren’t exaggerating though bc once you see Jin you get it, you get all of it you understand every single compliment they ever gave him bc he’s so nice in every way
  • Not only is he beautiful but he’s also super sweet and he spends like an hour just talking to you and your friend and making the both of you feel comfortable and getting the full description of what your friend wants and he offers up a few different designs
  • He’s just really calming to talk to bc you can tell that he’s genuinely curious about your answers, he really does wanna know what your hobbies are
  • He doesn’t start the tattoo until your friend gives the okay and he keeps talking to the both of you the entire time and he plays some music to help distract your friend bc tattoos can hurt like a bitch so anything you can do to help keep a beginner entertained is a good thing
  • He’s also pretty quick about the tattooing, your friend wanted a written tattoo which is why you guys went to Jin bc he’s pretty well known for being able to come up with some cool fonts and interesting ways to add in lil accents of personality into them like sometimes he’ll have the person write it in their handwriting or he’ll try to pick a font that he feels would match their personality best (which is why he spends so long getting to know them prior to the tattoo he likes to personalize each tattoo)
  • The entire experience doesn’t take nearly as long as you’d expected it to and you’re hesitant to say goodbye bc you’re trying to think of excuses to come back and see him again but the only real way to do that is getting a tattoo
  • Thankfully as you’re walking out to the front area, Jin gives the both of you hugs and he stops you to talk to you while your friend is paying
  • “I would love to hear the stories of your tattoos”
  • “Well maybe if you meet me here at five on Saturday and let me take you to dinner, you’ll get to find out”
  • “That sounds like a fair deal”
  • “Then I’ll see you on Saturday”
A Study On Boys (And Girls)

Based on Tyde’s gifset. This took a while. A GM First Date fic. Based on a conversation I had with T, partially. ‘Cause I need a boy.

Pairing: Riley/Maya
Words: 4,926
Summary:   Maya doesn’t know much, but she does know that she can’t keep looking at Riley like this, especially when Riley is going on her first date and it’s with Lucas, and so Maya needs a boy. But life’s just not that easy. Maybe there’s something wrong with her.

ALTERNATIVELY, READ IT ON AO3/LEAVE A COMMENT

The dance is coming up and the day starts with Lucas, and you’re not surprised, because isn’t it usually all about Lucas, anyways?

anonymous asked:

Couldn't the changes in Len's character in Legends be due to how he fell for Sara? With the one deleted scene they released it looked like it was almost love at first sight. He was kinder and more honest and open with her than anyone else including Lisa and Mick. No one saw through and understood him like she did ever before. His getting rid of Mick was more about him trying to hurt Sara than the team. And she was the one who got him to make up with Mick. It never would have happened without her

Anon, there is so much wrong here that I very strongly considered not answering because the only things I can say are to disagree with you and that’ll probably make you angry.

But, well, I was a little angry too, particularly at the line “His getting rid of Mick was more about him trying to hurt Sara than the team” but I decided not to let anger rule my thoughts. Nonetheless, I’m gonna answer because I feel it’s worth a discussion for why I think differently, and why your post struck a bit of a nerve. Sorry if this isn’t what you want to hear, but I really do feel it warrants a meta/commentary response.

First, no I don’t think all the changes in him are due to Sara and I’d say that’s an oversimplification of how and why a person changes. It strips Len of those changes being about him at all really, taking away some of his autonomy in making the changes. If you change solely for someone else and not for yourself, that’s not sustainable. Len changed for himself and through the influence of a host of different factors, and to reduce it to largely one thing misses so much of the complexity of how and why people change in reality. And I’m not saying that falling in love can’t change a person (through the different viewpoints they take on and through the trust they develop), but I also don’t read Len as having been in love with Sara. People, a single person, can help catalyze change in us even without being in love, of course, but it’s still missing some of the point to make it all about that other person. Change happens internally.  

And there are a lot of the factors that could plausibly, canonically, go into him changing. I mean, I maintain that many of the changes that bothered me (the very subtle characterization ones that tilt him more to a slytherin-hufflepuff than a slytherin-ravenclaw) are ones that came in from the writers wanting to have him work with a team and taking over his character from a different team, losing a bit in translation. But in canon, if we try to explain those changes, I really would not ever want to attribute them to solely one character.

I feel that if we explain the canonical changes in Len, we can point to a couple of major factors, and his budding friendship with Sara is one of those (because it shows him letting people in and believing that change and overcoming one’s past is actually possible, because it’s something she is doing and demonstrating). A few others are Barry’s staunch belief in Len’s goodness and his willingness to help Len, working with Lisa and Mick again and the effect that has on him, being free of his father in a final way, and working with a team of people who’s wellbeing he feels responsible for (especially Jax). I’ve made posts that talk about most of those factors in one way or another though, so I won’t delve into them here.

More specific to the points you raise, I disagree that he demonstrates anything approaching love at first sight in the deleted scene.

Honestly the only thing I read into that is that he a) is trying to get a feel for people on the team and doesn’t quite know what to make of Sara yet, except that she might be the only one aside from Mick he has anything in common with (she shuts that down with the reincarnated point), and b) that he’s a bit intrigued at her willingness to bite back, but maybe a little annoyed at how barbed she is with him. (For the record we literally never see him even glance in the direction of her ass so I don’t get where that line is from.)

I also strongly disagree that he’s “kinder and more honest and open with her than anyone else including Lisa and Mick”. I don’t even know where you get that idea, to be frank. Len loves his sister to death and would do anything for her. He would never raise a weapon to her like he does to Sara in 1x15 and there’s zero reason to suspect he’d be less honest with her than with Sara (or anyone else). If you try to raise the point that he didn’t tell her his dad kidnapped him, I’d counter by saying he didn’t really have a chance and wanted to protect her. He also happened to lie to Sara (alongside the rest of the team) about having killed Mick. 

If you want to talk about Len opening up about his past to people like his heart-to-heart with Sara while they were freezing to death, he’s even similarly expository with Ray (who I maintain he ultimately dislikes) without much prompting.

Len also lies to Sara’s face at least once or twice, particularly about Mick. “Everyone okay between you two?” “Peachy.” Even if it’s unbarbed and obvious, he’s not really being honest (with himself or with her, and they both know it). He’s not opening up to her.


With Mick, Len is admittedly not always honest, or fair. 

But that’s in part because he takes a high degree of responsibility for Mick, maybe more than Mick wants him to. He doesn’t always expect Mick to make decisions in his own best interest, and Len has a very high need for control and believes he’ll make the best decision for his friend. 

Is it okay? Not necessarily. But I don’t think he means that he’s largely dishonest with Mick or that there isn’t a huge amount of trust and understanding between them. 

Mick’s the one who knows Len’s intentions for going in the trip, knows where Len’s head is at, is the one at Len’s side who can literally finish his sentences and move in sync with him. They have one-word codes like ‘Alexa’ and ‘like that time in Chicago’ that tell them everything they need to know about a situation. 30+ years of history will do that with someone. 

Actually, the whole ‘pulling the cold gun out’ thing is neat with respect that. He pulls it on Mick, Mick pulls the heat gun out, they have a stand off for a minute. Len appears to think about it and calm down and come up with the next step for what to do, or else it gives him space to remember to be the reasonable one. Mick gets this too because he doesn’t ever pull his trigger, just waits for Len to decide to end the stand off, every time we’ve seen them have one. But with Sara, she called his bluff. She didn’t understand why he’s doing this and what he gets out of pulling out his gun and having a stand off with someone so she calls him on it (which is fair, I’m not saying she’s in the wrong). And maybe it’s all dysfunctional as hell of him, but I think it demonstrates how Mick understands Len better than Sara does. He moves along to the beats Len is playing in a way that Sara won’t (which is fine because no one needs to, but you can’t tell me that Mick doesn’t understand Len inside and out, up and down).

Which is why I so strongly shirk at the idea that Len ‘got rid of Mick’ (just that in the first place, he didn’t get rid of him), more for Sara than for anyone else. Len marooned Mick for the stated reason of worrying what would happen to his sister if Mick went back to 2016. He knows Mick has impulse control problems and anger issues. He knows that he himself acts like a check/balance on Mick, so dropping him off in 2016 could have some high-damage consequences. So it was about protecting the team, and protecting their loved ones in 2016 (particularly Lisa, the person Mick is most likely to go after because it’s more Len he wants revenge on than any of the other team members). Beyond that canonically-stated reason for marooning Mick, it could also have come down to a lot of personal shit between Len and him. 

To the extent that once he chose not to kill him, Len always planned to return for Mick (till death got in the way), he probably intended for the marooning to be a very short cool-down period for Mick before Len picked up back up and brought him home. A “okay you betrayed us you jackass and it fucking hurt and I’m pissed but I’ve had time to think about it and you’ve been stuck here to think about it for a day, so now let’s go home alright?”.

I mean, you can read a lot more into it than that with respect to their relationship, but I don’t think it’s valuable to bring anyone else into that. It was about Len and Mick, and to a lesser extent about Lisa, and then about the team as a unit. There’s no evidence it was about anyone else, and certainly no evidence that Len was worried Mick would hurt Sara if he stuck around.

As for her being the reason they made up, I agree she had a part in that, but I also think it would have happened eventually in the same way regardless. She was a catalyst though, and showed empathy and deep understanding in that situation. I think that’s highly to her credit, actually, and I’m not sure why you’d make that about Len’s character changes when it really shows her own development and insight. 

But Len and Mick have been at serious odds before, were apart for a few years even, and still manage to find their way back to one another. They always do, with or without anyone’s help, and being confined on a ship together was going to press the issue sooner rather than later. Sara didn’t convince Len to lay down his life for Mick and die if that’s what Mick wanted from him. Len’s love for Mick did that, full stop.


tl;dr - Mick and Lisa understand Len better than Sara does as per canon, and he canonically demonstrates more honesty with his sister and more mutual understanding with Mick than he does with her. There’s nothing to suggest love at first sight (intrigue, at most) and there’s nothing at all to suggest that him marooning Mick had anything to do with Sara herself. The implication Len changed solely/mostly because of her is just a large oversimplification that strips him of personal autonomy in making those changes.

So after i made a list of differences between movie jd and musical jd here, some people asked me to do one for veronica too so here it is! :)

-One difference that she shares with JD is, again, their relationship. I’ve written a ton about the differences in their relationship in the musical vs the movie, the primary one being that they were in love in the musical. I’ve already pointed out some of the ways musical JD expresses his love, but Veronica does too!

-Seventeen basically speaks for itself. The whole song is literally Veronica telling JD how much she loves him and wants to be with him. The way she reaches her hand out to him fuckin KILLS me 😭

-Where movie Veronica basically gave up on him pretty quick (understandably, bc movie JD was a creepo) musical Veronica tried several times to save him (theres actually a gifset here if you wanna check it out lmao) she wanted to save him because she loved him!

-Her personality in general is just extremely different, she’s honestly the polar opposite of movie Veronica. Where movie Veronica is cool, sarcastic, and apathetic, musical Veronica is an adorable, socially awkward dork who is so kind and strong and just aaaahh. I love her so much omg

-not a huge difference but movie Veronica is really rich and musical Veronica seems to be more middle class? (Heather saying her house looked poor and the fact that her parents had liverwurst instead of pate) idk just something I noticed

-in the musical she cried and was so sad when Kurt and Ram spread the three way rumor about her, in the movie she was just pissed

-DEAD GIRL WALKING. Even though she’s more innocent in the musical, that doesn’t stop her from literally BREAKING JD’S WINDOW LOCK and telling him she’s gonna ride him til she breaks him?? And then in the middle she sings him this mini love ballad before pushing him down and slapping him and just being very very intense in general ?? damn Veronica get it girl

-when she pretended to hang herself in the movie and her mom found her she literally just hung there for a minute and let her mom think she was dead, and then when she got herself down was just like “lol why so tense” but in the musical the second her mom walked in she was like “IM SORRY IM SORRY DONT FREAK OUT IM ALIVE” because she’s a much more compassionate person!

-also the fact that she brought a croquet mallet instead of a gun to stop JD is something that goes unnoticed but I think it’s huge. It shows that A. She didn’t have/didn’t want to use a gun bc they’re violent as fuck and B. She wasn’t planning on really hurting JD.

-speaking of shooting JD in the movie she intentionally shoots him SEVERAL times and every time she’s like “take that haha” but in the musical she accidentally shoots him once and then freaks out, and tries to wake him up and when she can’t you can see how much pain or causes her, like she just slumps over with her hand over her mouth trying to to stop herself from crying.

-another biiiig difference is that she tries to really kill herself with the bomb in the musical. In the movie she’s like “whatever glad that’s over lmao!” and just leaves casually, but in the musical she’s so broken and guilty over everything that’s happened and JD’s death was like the final straw that made her feel like she didn’t deserve to live. :(

-the fact that she tried to stop JD from killing himself is also super important! In the movie she was legit smirking while he blew up, in the musical she was like “no stop not like this wait!” And it broke my goddamn heart!

-when she went after JD in the musical she basically expected one of two things to happen: they both live or they both die. She clearly wanted him to live because when she confronted him she told him how she wished they met before he started hating the world, and she begged him to come with her. And in DGW reprise she sang “cheek to cheek in hell with a dead girl walking!” Implying that they were both “bad” people who would die together, and when he died, she felt like she had to die to pay for the things she did as well. The only thing stopping her was JD telling her to stay and live and make the world a better place.

-and the very end, when she goes back to school and basically tells everyone “listen we’re all going to be good people now even though we’re scared and damaged we’re gonna be okay because we’re all beautiful” and in the movie she’s just super casual about it like “alright i guess im the head bitch now hah”

Long story short Musical Veronica Sawyer is the love of my life and I would die for her also she is the polar opposite of Movie Veronica Sawyer! Thanks for your time this was so long I’m sorry omg

Cause so far people where saying that wasn’t possible because of the Mark and Dean descent etc now it’s gone and yeah does that mean we can expect that to improve again?

What’s the Deal with Neal? Or, Why NealFire Gets No Love

Oh, Neal– you’ve suffered a truly craptastic childhood and spent most of your time on-screen racing through THREE realms to help the son you’ve known for a week … only to be met by widespread indifference at best by the OUAT fandom, as far as I can tell. I know there’s a small but vocal minority who ship Neal with Emma, but even they spent a lot of time defending Neal from various and sundry charges leveled at our favorite portal-jumper from other parts of the OUAT fandom.

It’s lit by the magical properties of Characterius No-Carius!

In which Regina is the fandom

But why is this? Is Neal really that bad a person, or is there something else going on here? Please note this essay isn’t a defense of Neal, in shipping terms or otherwise (the Neal essay is here!)– it’s merely a rundown of reasons I think he’s not more popular. Namely:

  1. Poisoning the Well
  2. Neal’s Flashback Problem
  3. Baelfire is Neal?!
  4. Guilt by Association
  5. There’s No Time!

Ready to fall down a psychological portal to a realm of rampant speculation? Then let’s go!

Ah! so the gif set this is based off of for everyone: , umm also maybe this one? 

Consequences of a Bad Habit

                Zelo was making his way from the kitchen to the living room after grabbing a quick snack. He was slightly dancing to the music flowing from his earphones and when inspiration hit he stopped walking to do a more complicated dance movement. Once the section was done Zelo smiled and was about to continue on walking but Youngjae was now blocking his way.

                Before Zelo could ask if he needed anything, Youngjae got on his toes to give Zelo a peck on the cheek.

                “Hyung!” Zelo clapped his hand to his cheek.

                Youngjae laughed. “You are just too cute sometimes. Just be thankful I’m not biting you!”

                “You wouldn’t actually bite me, would you?” Zelo asked feeling skeptical.

                Youngjae put his hands up, acting like they were claws. “You better run Zelo or I might just attack you.”

                “Youngjae Hyung…” Zelo took a step back, not sure if the older boy was teasing him or not.

                “Too cute.” Youngjae chuckled. He feigned a jump forward and Zelo stumbled back and started to run towards the couch. “Now I have to chase you!” Youngjae groaned, but ended with a smile.

                They started running around the living room, into the kitchen, and around the dining table. Zelo’s long legs kept him ahead of Youngjae, but Youngjae was clever enough to always block the hallway that led to the bedroom. Zelo was calling out for Youngjae to stop, but Youngjae kept replying that Zelo’s cuteness was too much so he couldn’t stop.

                They were rounding the dining table once again when Youngjae felt something encircle his waist. He yelped as he was pulled back.

inspired by this gifset, which I will never stop seeing as bones.

After Khan, they’re all a mess for a while. Spock and Uhura break up and get back together twice. Chekov tenders his resignation, but rescinds it the next day. No one ever really sees Scotty, because he’s holed up in the hangar somewhere with his precious, broken girl. And Sulu briefly considers leaving the ‘Fleet to work in botany, but Chekov asks him not to and, well. That’s the end of that.

And then there’s Jim and Bones.

At first it’s not so bad, because Jim is kept under surveillance in Starfleet Medical and that gives Bones an excuse to be there, too. But once he’s released, they start to feel the effects of being involved in the very public debacle that Starfleet is now attempting to handle. The Vengeance destroyed almost twenty square blocks, resulting in a massive loss of life. It’s being called the worst terrorist attack on the States since the 21st century.

There are reporters everywhere.

When they first leave the hospital, Bones thinks that maybe it’s just because this is the first time they’ve been able to access Jim. Surely after he gives an official statement at his hearing, it’ll die down.

It doesn’t.

Seeing all the lovely new .gifsets from this amazing MMB interview reminded me that I meant to comment on this tiny little thing that pinged with me the moment Melissa said it.

Speaking of Daryl and Carol’s relationship, Melissa uses the phrase, “the room that they give one another.” The second those words were out of her mouth, my mind instantly snapped to this image:

[.gif by dixonscarol]

I mean honestly, this .gif is everything I love about their relationship, distilled.

Because Daryl is the one person in Carol’s life who simply does not judge her. Ever. She doesn’t have to make herself different in order to meet with his “approval,” because he offers her not only unconditional love, but unconditional acceptance.

How much of Carol’s life was probably spent prethinking (totally a word) every action she ever took in order to predict how Ed would react, in order to try to shape that reaction to be the least harmful to her and particularly to Sophia? Every word, every facial expression, every gesture, every mannerism, every purchase, every wardrobe choice, every recipe, etc. She always had to think first, always had to consider how her decisions would affect Ed’s attitude and his mood. (And of course, despite her best efforts, she often got beat up anyway, because as she knows now, abuse has everything to do with the choices of the abuser and nothing to do with the choices of the victim.)

And sure, she had a brief respite from this after Ed’s death, but the second she walked into Alexandria, she had to put up a facade again. Back to constant vigilance, fake smiles, relentlessly making sure the mask doesn’t slip no matter how much it costs her to keep in in place.

So the heartbreaking contrast between her entire life history and this little moment – when Daryl plunks himself down on the steps beside Carol and she casually hands him one of her cigarettes so they can smoke together – gives me every feeling in the goddamn book and then some. There’s emotional distance between them; that’s clear. The effortless ease we saw between them in ‘30 Days’ is long gone. But so much of who and what they are to each other remains, omg.

The smoking has to be new to Daryl. But does he question her? Ask her to explain herself? Get a judgy eyebrow? Does he even seem to have any reaction at all?

Nope.

He merely asks her for a cigarette and joins her.

the room that they give one another

Daryl doesn’t have to say a word to deliver his message:

  • “I know you’re dealing with something.”
  • “I’m right here if you wanna talk about it.”
  • “But I’m not gonna press you if you don’t.”
  • “You don’t need to make yourself different in a single fucking way in order to make me want to be here.”
  • “I just want to be here.”

Yes, it’s soul-crushing that Carol’s already retreated so far inside herself by this point that she’s not capable of accepting what he’s offering. 

My point is that he’s still offering it. At least from the information we have available to us in canon, there is no one else in Carol’s life who knows everything she’s ever done shhhh probably not the specifics of Lizzie and Mika but that would change absolutely nothing about my argument and unequivocally loves and accepts her anyway. 

And that is why – for reasons so far beyond pure shipping – I truly hope the damn writers allow him to be part of Carol’s psychological recovery (and her to be part of his). Nobody else can take his place – nobody.

Because his position in her life is entirely unique.

LITTLE MOMENTS THAT I LOVE IN THE VERONICA MARS MOVIE

Why I’ve (basically) Left the Fandom

I’m sure that a lot of you have noticed that I’ve been pulling away from the fandom for a long time. I haven’t made gifs since Daniel’s passing, and even before that I hadn’t made gifs regularly for a few months.

I haven’t been in the mark*iplier tag for a LONG time because of the utter chaos it contains.

First it started with the stealing of gifs and fanart. I’m very aware that it’s a widespread problem across tumblr and the internet, but the constant thievery and then resulting refusal to either take down the piece of work/gif or the rudeness over even being asked to take it down just finally got to me and I stopped. Making gifs takes a lot of work. I have gifsets that took me days, even more than a week at some points, to make. I got tired of having my stuff and other’s stuff stolen, so I stopped making things.

The tag is a whoooooooole ‘nother ball-game. When I joined the fandom in March of 2014, you could go into the tag and see tons of beautiful fanart and gifs and things people had created for Mark or about Mark, and it was awesome.
And then it turned into a shitfest.
Posts that have nothing to do with Mark or anything related to it would show up, like “i just had breakfast lol”, or just random selfies. It would be bursting with comments like “fist me daddy” and other grotesque things. There is so much stolen artwork in the tag at this point. There’s so much vitriol in the tag as well. It’s damn near impossible to have Mark even come close to seeing what people have made, or for anyone else to see it either because it’s turned into an absolute clusterfuck. Not to mention when something bad happens people fucking flood it with pictures of cats and whatnot. If the tag is negative, people should stay out of it. Spam is spam, dude, and it’s intensely annoying when someone is looking for fanart and other things to reblog and all there is is 300 pages of cats.

The biggest thing that has me leaving, though, is the utter fucking disrespect some of you have for each other and Mark. People have been chased out of the fandom by people sending death threats and telling them to kill themselves, and that they’re useless to the fandom. Someone speaks up about something that they don’t agree with (in a respectful manner a lot of the time, too) and people jump on them with such ferocity that it makes my head spin. I’ve had it happen to me, even, and it’s not cool. 

Another thing that happens a lot is that when something controversial happens (which is gonna happen because this is fucking tumblr and if you fart the wrong direction someone is going to be offended ffs) people who are legitimately offended by something Mark has done, everyone crowds together to drown them out. Someone spoke up about how Mark’s recent sassiness went too far in some points and was kind of mean, and the offhanded anorexia comment in one of his ‘would you rather’ videos, and people told them to go kill themselves and that anyone who was offended needed to grow a backbone and fucking suck it up. I have a sense of humor very similar to Mark’s—sharp, teasing, and kind of insulting—and even I found some of it to be rude or over the line. 

Here’s the thing: When someone says you (or something) has hurt them, you don’t get to say that it didn’t. That’s not your place.

On the other topic, the blatant disregard of respect towards Mark is disgusting and appalling. Ya’ll preach it but you don’t practice it.

Yes, we know that Mark is an incredibly attractive man. I know it, you know it, he knows it, but that does NOT mean you get to talk about him like he’s a fucking piece of meat.

You talk about how treating women like they’re sex objects is wrong, but you turn around and do it to Mark. It needs to fucking STOP. He is a HUMAN BEING and he deserves respect. Catcalling him on the internet is just as fucked up as a man catcalling a woman on the street. 

I don’t care if you want to fuck him. I don’t care if you want to grab his ass, but KEEP IT TO YOURSELF. DON’T say it to him. Don’t TAG him in stuff like that. It’s fucking harassment and I don’t understand what part of that you people don’t get.

He’s also a human being who makes mistakes. There is no goddamn need to try and label him a pariah every time he slips up on something. He’s not perfect. The pedestal some of you have put him on is unhealthy. He’s just as flawed as you or I am. The only difference is that he has nearly 11,000,000 people scrutinizing his every move. 

There’s a reason he kept his past relationship a secret—the second you guys even thought he might have a girlfriend you tried to find her and attempted to fucking tear her apart. It’s sickening. He’s lived in LA for almost two years and he’s had to move three times because people kept finding his house. Respect his privacy. 

Don’t get me wrong—I still love Mark from the bottom of my heart, but I don’t love this fandom anymore.

TL;DR: the disrespect is out of control and all I do is get angry when I interact with this fandom at this point. I’m incredibly disappointed because this used to be my safe place, but now it’s just toxic as all hell.

anonymous asked:

why would anyone choose peggy over natasha, lmao, you need to gtfo

HEY GUESS WHAT BUDDY

There’s this little thing called different opinions. It means that someone can have an opinion that’s the opposite of yours. I know it’s a strange concept for you, so I’ll give you a few moments to wrap your tiny little brain around it before I go in too deep.

Are you okay now? Do you need to lie down? It must be tough learning something new like that, but I’m also going to throw in another new term for you. Tolerance.Another big word, I apologize, I’m sure the little monkey inside your head is going bananas right now (hahaha, get it? Monkey? Bananas? You probably don’t, that’s ok). Tolerance means that you can handle and accept/tolerate a different opinion and/or behavior that you may not necessarily agree with. 

Now I used a lot of big words again, so I’ll give you a few moments for your brain to adjust.

Now that’s settled, let me explain why I think Peggy Carter is the boss ass bitch of this entire town.

1. She grew up in a very patriarchal society (much more than our current one) and managed to become a high-commanding agent in a very male-dominated field.

2. She can kick the living shit out of people in high heels, while keeping her make-up and hair perfectly intact (and if you don’t respect that, son, then you need to gtfo yourself).

3. She became co-founder of SHIELD, and was probably the first woman ever to be in such a high position, especially in the field she was in. 

4. She’s determined and brave as fuck. She goes into enemy territory so that Steve can rescue Bucky along with the rest of the soldiers. Had she not done that, Steve probably would never have made it there in time to save them (or maybe not even have made it there in general, he may have been captured or shot on the spot). Not to mention that in the one-shot Agent Carter, she went on a mission that said “3-5 agents suggested” and she completed it all on her own. So she definitely knows what she’s doing.

5. She paved the way for future agents like Maria Hill, Melinda May, and Natasha Romanoff to become a part of this male-dominated field and kick some ass just like she did.

I could go on, but basically you should damn well respect Peggy Carter. She not only was an example to little girls in the marvel universe, but to us as well. She teaches us that we can do anything if we set our minds to it, and no man can tell us any different. 

Now that’s a lot of information again. You may have to lie down for a bit or take a little coffee break before I go on to my next part.

….

Are you okay now? Probably not, but I’m going to continue on anyways.

Never. Ever. Should you pit one female character against the other.

Seriously, what the actual fuck is wrong with you. Every female character has their strengths and weaknesses and pitting one against the other is just unfair. 

Natasha Romanoff is also a boss ass bitch and I have a damn lot of respect for her. Wanna know why? Here’s a little list for you:

1. She held her own in a team that’s made up of a super soldier, a god, a green rage monster, a man in a metal suit, and a roof-top jumping archer. Not only is she one out of two “ordinary” humans on this team, but she’s also the only woman (so far). And she ended up saving everyone by closing the portal in The Avengers (she was also the first one to figure it out, mind you). 

2. “I’ve got red in my ledger, I’d like to wipe it out.” I respect anyone who wants to correct all of the horrible things they have done in their past and do good. Natasha Romanoff is trying to put herself on the right track, and by doing so is risking her own life. This right here proves that she’s a good person despite what she’s done in her past. 

3. She cares. There’s this one gifset, I wish I could link it to you, but it basically shows Natasha insisting to Erik Selvig, Clint Barton, and Steve Rogers that the events happening are not their fault. I mean…god, she understands their pain but she still tells them No, this isn’t your fault. Because it isn’t their fault. Erik and Clint were brainwashed by Loki, and Steve had no control over that piece of metal Bucky was hanging on to for breaking and especially had no control over what happened to Bucky once he fell. Not to mention the part in The Avengers where she’s trying to calm Bruce down and she shoos away the other agents who come over to see if they’re alright. She does this again in Cap 2 when she’s running from the Winter Soldier and she’s telling people to run.

4. She does what needs to be done. After going up against a giant green rage monster, she steels herself to go stop Clint. She fights against her own friend who could quite possibly kill her, but she does it because it has to be done. But I don’t think her intention was to ever kill him. Her intention was to stop him, and find a way to get Loki out of his head. 

5. She let’s the entire world know about her past, she blew all of her covers, for the greater good. I mean, I bet there was stuff in there that could have thrown her in jail, or even get her killed, but she does it anyway. She does it because Hydra needs to be stopped, even if that means sacrificing a bit herself.

Are you still okay? I’m surprised if you’re still reading this, mostly because I understand the intellectual capabilities of your own brain are rather insignificant, but hey if you are, good for you! Maybe you’ll learn a thing or two.

….

Now let me get on the finale of this rather long rant. I love both characters, and so should you. They’re a part of a long list of strong female characters that Marvel has given us (now “strong” /=/ “kick ass” I consider Jane Foster, Pepper Potts, Betty Ross, etc. etc. all strong female characters even if they can’t “kick ass” and so should you) and I’m really glad about that.

May I prefer one over the other? Yes. As does everyone. Some people may prefer Pepper over Jane, or Natasha over Peggy, and that’s okay because unlike you I understand how not to be a dick to people with different opinions (there’s that term again. You might want to scroll up to the beginning of this rant to make sure you understand that term fully). People will prefer them for different reasons, but that doesn’t mean that they think the latter isn’t a good character. Natasha Romanoff is a wonderful character, I just happen to like Peggy a bit more.

So all in all? Every female character in the Marvel Universe is an absolute treasure and should be damn well respected even if they’re not your favorite. You should also respect other people’s opinions because *GASP* they’ll probably have a different opinion than yours.

Oh, and one more thing. 

YES, I’M SALTY AS FUCK, AND I’M GONNA BE A JACKASS, YOU’VE BEEN WARNED

So tonight, I came on tumblr to find out someone had made a Spike post consisting of literally all gifs made by me. As usual, I always try to contact the reposter and ask them to either remove the content or credit my blog (as they should’ve done in the first place, but that’s beside the point…) I’m going to post the entire conversation because I’m kinda pissed off, and I want to get the message across that 

REPOSTING IS NOT PROPER TUMBLR ETIQUETTE. 

It says so on the tumblr community guidelines (x)

See? This goes under the heading “what tumblr is NOT for”...

Anyway, I’ll post the whole conversation and then I’ll make some points. I won’t post this blog’s url because I don’t want to turn this into a war and “salty” replies aside, they did what I asked them to do (credit my blog on the original post.) I just want to make some points about reposting. 

I’m using this convo as an example because every time someone reposts something of mine, I get the same standard replies and excuses for stealing. So I’ll address some of the points made by this person and I’ll refute them because they’re bananas and full of fallacies and if you’re gonna steal from me, at least use some actual logic to defend what you’re doing? Okay…

1) “I honestly didn’t even get them from your blog. I got them from a different spike blog that must have reblogged them from you. I didn’t even notice they were all made by the same person nor did I even think to give credit.” You’re basically admitting that yeah, you stole them. You were just hoping you woudln’t get caught, and you didn’t care about the fact that someone else had made them nor did you think about crediting them. 

2) “ I don’t understand why people get upset when people repost things like gifs from a tv show on tumblr. I’ve made gifs that have been “stolen” before and I was like “hey, cool! Someone used my gif!”” LIAR. I’ve yet to meet a gif maker who doesn’t get pissed off when someone reposts their gifs without giving proper credit. But more on why this is a bunch of lies later…

3) “But you should probably watermark your stuff if it’s that big of a deal to you“ Excuse you? So, you’re basically saying that it’s my fault you stole my stuff? And you’re telling me what to do with my own work? You’re basically telling me that if I watermark my stuff, you won’t steal from me, you just will go steal someone else. The wrong behavior here is not my not watermarking my gifs, it’s your stealing from me. 

4) “ Make me a gifset like that and I’ll reblog it for sure.” EXCUSE YOU???? MAKE YOU SOMETHING????? So not only does this person steal from me, but then they have the audacity to demand them I make them the exact gif set they wanted which led them to steal gifs from me? Can you see how crazy this is???? Is this opposite day??? Or jackass day??? Also, if you’re a gif maker like you claimed to be in 2) WHY DIDN’T YOU MAKE THE GIFS YOURSELF? OH RIGHT. BECAUSE YOU DON’T MAKE GIFS, YOU STEAL THEM AND REPOST THEM.

5) ““I wonder why that would be” cause I didn’t think it would be a big deal. Like you sound salty as fuck.” This is 100% true. I am salty as fuck. Nothing to argue here.

6) “ You’re making gifs from a TV show. Do you credit the person that filmed the show in all your gifs? No? Oh I guess that’s stealing too!” It’s not stealing, actually, because I’m not posting the entirety of BTVS episodes and claiming I shot them. I’m making two-seconds gifs of specific scenes, moving images with no sound. I don’t claim to own BTVS, but I did create and I do own the fucking gifs that I’ve made, saved on my computer and uploaded to tumblr. Again, check the community guidelines.

7) “ You’re not adding any original artwork to the gifs.” Does this mean that in your twisted rhetoric only people who make pretty artsy gifs have the right to claim them as their own? Fuck no. I’ve still MADE them and they’re still mine. And what kind of original artwork are you adding to them by reposting???

8) “ I could make the exact same one as you but I didn’t because I didn’t want to waste my time when those gifs already exist.” YOU’RE STEALING! YOU’RE FUCKING STEALING! The fact that you’re too lazy to make things on your own does not give you the right to steal it from others! That’s like plagiarizing someone’s paper and saying: “oh I wanted to write it but I didn’t feel like doing it myself because it was too much work and it already existed on the internet so…” Yes, it is TOO MUCH WORK. That’s why gif makers like myself get pissed off when freeloaders like yourself steal our stuff and make it look like their own. AND IF YOU COULD’VE MADE IT YOURSELF, YOU SHOULD HAVE DONE IT! I’m daring you to make the EXACT SAME GIFS like mine. 

9) “ You’re on the internet. Shit gets reposted without credit ALL the time.” FALLACY. You’re saying just because everyone does it, it’s right. It’s not. It’s still wrong, it doesn’t matter if one person or every single human being in the whole world does it. It’s still stealing and it’s still wrong.

10) “Like I said, watermark your stuff if it’s that big of a deal to you but you can’t post something online for the world to see and then call it stealing when someone posts it.”  Oh sweetie, you’re making this too easy. You said it yourself: I post something online for the world to SEE, not to STEAL IT. 

11) “ I didn’t even say it was mine.” You didn’t say it wasn’t yours either, and you didn’t say whose it was. And any way, when you make an “original” post on tumblr and you upload stuff without giving credit, you’re basically implying it’s yours.

12)  “ You’re not even getting paid for this stuff so why do you care so much? Cause you won’t get followers?” FALLACY. The fact that I don’t get paid for this stuff doesn’t mean that it doesn’t belong to me, or that I shouldn’t care about it being stolen and reposted. And it seems to me that the one who cares about getting notes and followers is you, considering you’re reposting other people’s work.

13) “ Try asking someone nicely without all the passive aggressiveness next time.” TRY NOT STEALING OTHER PEOPLE’S GIFS NEXT TIME, AND YOU WON’T GET THE PASSIVE AGGRESSIVENESS!

14) “I wanted to make a post about one of my favourite characters without taking the whole damn day to do it” You’re basically acknowledging that you know the kind of work that goes behind making gifs, and you’re saying that you don’t care how much time and effort someone else put into make them. If you want to make something and you are too lazy to make it yourself, don’t steal!

15) “ Yeah it would have taken me 5 minutes to download the software, download the episodes, find the parts I wanted, take them into photoshop, export them and upload them”  You don’t have the software? So you’re not a gif maker then!

(this is my gif, btw, don’t steal it!)

16) “ You shouldn’t take the internet so seriously. You’ll get grey hair before you turn 18″ Oh, sweet child, I’m 32 and I already have grey hair. Someone stealing from me does not make me age, it just pisses me the fuck off.
