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.

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.”

@bellaarke okay

1. liar. i unblocked you after i replied so you could reply to me. (i had blocked you earlier when you made those anti cl gifsets and kept posting anti edits in the edit tags.)

2. i do not give a shit. you cant tag with pro tags because you think ~everyone need to see this~ like that’s not how it works and if you pull that shit you will get called out for it. you do not get to spread negativity in safe spaces for oppressed people. (these are gay and poc ships for fucks sake)

3. your entire gifset was a thinly veiled attempt to justify the abusive aspects of bellarke by likening it to ships that threatened each other because they had just met and had never hurt each other since. 

justify the behaviour?? you are so quick to demonize (mostly) clexa tbh and braven, but justify up and down every terrible thing bellamy and clarke have done to each other. minimizing the manipulation. like do you know how many times i’ve seen them romanticizing him handcuffing her or her pointing a gun at him romantic angst where they ~*~make up and flirt~*~. and it’s complete bullshit for you to try to make them all the same amount of bad- which you clearly did in the edit, your little tag rant made it clear- to heighten and exaggerate things from like clexa and braven and emori, for the sake of minimizing blarke.

clexa never went as far as SHOOTING AT THE OTHER OR CHAINING THEM. i made no mention here of bellamy threatening to cut off her hand/letting her fall, but while that had happened when they had first met, clarke manipulating him, telling him his death was worth it, lying to him about trying to kill octavia so he continued on his suicide mission, drugging him, shooting at him and chaining him happened long after they had been ~friends and soulmates for a while lmao

and on top of that, bellarke gets a pass for one of their many earlier problematic scenes since they literally just met, but when it comes to braven or memori, that’s not the case. them just meeting doesn’t justify their scenes?? strange

4. you posted negative content worded in the most disgusting manner in a tag for wlw, and have the gall to tell me ~its a public forum uwu~??? you know how lexa died, you guys fucking won and you still have to shit on queer girls and tag this kNOWING THEY’LL SEE IT, WHICH WAS YOUR INTENTION IN THE FIRST PLACE, and are now acting like some calm and rational discourser after upsetting qwoc with your homophobia and racism. which is textbook tone policing and condescension. damn right i called you racist and lesbophobic because newsflash you are. and everything you pulled is bitter and cruel. and subjecting oppressed people to negative content and thinking youre doing gods work fo ir is self righteous and makes you an asshole. and you can rot for that. and you are obtuse for repeatedly speaking over qwoc and calling them racist/homophobic for disliking racist/homophobic media to prop up your awful otp.

5. lol what the fuck

qwoc: this is racist and homophobic and cruel

you: You don’t know a damn thing about me as a person, not simply as a shipper, and cannot actually make any of those claims.


me: can you not ship racist/homophobic/sexist/abusive stuff? or at the very least not tag it with the edit tag which is basic decency?

you: How is it your business what anyone other than you ships? It isn’t you shipping it, so maybe mind your own fucking business. Because no matter how often or how loudly you scream about how problematic something is, it won’t actually stop the shippers from shipping it. And, yes, I get the irony of my statement, although I will defend myself by saying that I’ve never once told anyone that they can’t/shouldn’t ship something.

6. I said that you calling me lesbophobic for making a post about the things I didn’t like about the CL relationship (without actually knowing a damn thing about me as a person, and therefore really can’t make those kinds of accusations) would be the same thing as calling someone racist or biphobic for making a post about the things they don’t like about the BC relationship (without actually knowing a damn thing about them as a person, and therefore being unable to make those kinds of accusations)

sweetie bellarke is racist and homophobic. and upsets many poc and wlw. spin it literally however you want, this line of reasoning is obtuse as fuck. hating something for being racist/homohpibc… does not make people affected by that racist/homophobic…

7.  I was simply pointing out that you are throwing around the word ‘lesbophobic’ without any more proof then that I don’t like everything about the CL relationship.

you openly admitted to doing this because you were upset a bi woc was calling out racism. im not even going to bother explaining because you’re a troll who purposely keeps pulling this shit and then pretends not to understand to upset woc and wlw and then plays the ~calm and rational debater~. its an extremely common tactic and youre disgusting. here’s what i said last time

also i dont see you make the multiple gifsets of how Abusive these other ships are. nope, just the wlw ship between the lesbian and bi girl, right?

youre bitter and cruel and have this unbelievable need to justify your racism, homophobia and putting negative content in tags of GAY AND POC SHIPS (again, fuck off. you dont get to do this shit to oppressed people because of your sense of righteousness that stems from your need to present your racism and homophobia as something other than what it is) has crossed the line. not to mention ~ship what you want no matter how problematic uwu~ is the weakest, most disturbing excuse ever which has led to people shipping the most fucked up and bigoted shit. like gay men with straight girls, women with men who tried to murder them or have sex with them without their consent, woc with nazis, predatory pedophiles with underage girls, women with men who pursued and assaulted them for years knowing they were genuinely uninterested, abuse victims with their abusers, rape victims with their rapists, poc with white supremacists and so on. given that you ship some of these, i cant help but notice you once again trying to justify it. your interpretation of lexa as abusive and evil is absolutely rooted in your lesbophobia

8. Also, it’s kind of funny that you attacked me for pretending CL is the only ship with problematic parts and the rest are fluffy sitcom ships, but once I openly acknowledged the other ships problematic parts, you attacked me for ‘putting CL on the same level’. Like?

you must really hate context. that was my old post criticising your multiple anti clexa gifsets tagged with #lexaedit and whatnot. you did not “only acknowledge other ships problematic parts”, you tried to minimise how abusive bellarke is by stripping all context, picking up only 2 scenes out of the dozen problematic ones, and comparing it to braven and memori who have had 1 problematic scene when they didnt even KNOW EACH OTHER. nice try lol

9. ALSO hilarious tags.

#don’t feed the trolls - because upset poc and wlw are trolls now, not the person posting anti gifsets in pro tags 

#im out - because not only did you “”“feed the trolls”“ by like instigating this whole mess by making the gifset, tagging the ships, and replying to a ”“"troll”“”, youre fucking #i’m out just to like explain why you are taking the high road (despite creating the gifset and replying) meanwhile the truth is that your weak ass can’t stand an actual confrontation without victimizing yourself.

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)))

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.


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?

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”

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.

Originally posted by coldsflash

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

for the last time: clexa fandom needs to stop talking about bellamy blake since they are incapable of leaving their racism and double standards out of it and southern asians deserve to feel safe just as much as wlw do

im just gonna be honest. i, and dozens of other southern asian girls i am friends with feel unsafe and fucking terrified by the normalized, unconscious and insidious racism white wlw fandom constantly spews against southern asians under the guise of feminism and wlw rights

like….we are actual people who exist. we have suffered centuries of racism. we have internet access and can read the shit you say. your racism in fandom has real life implications. some of us are wlw and we can’t even enter fandom wlw safe spaces because every time we do, we see your unchecked violent and casual racism against us and feel sick to our stomachs seeing how much yall hate us and how your racism colors every aspect of how you consume media with us in it. 

yall twist facts to make moc look bad and abusive and evil, you twist narratives to favor white women and you ignore everything white people are guilty of. it’s fucking terrifying. you will never, ever stop seeing us through your racist templates and will always reply to us calling your racism out with “you are being sapphobic” because you’re obtuse and never ever want to face your racism.

one of the ugliest posts ive ever read

13. Why were male characters allowed to berate and blame women for everything? How come Jasper hated Clarke for Mt. Weather even though Bellamy was equally responsible? In what world did Bellamy have the right to guilt trip Clarke about Mt. Weather when he pulled the lever with her?

trusting lexa the first time was on clarke. the irradiation was on all 3 of them. bellamy was mad at clarke for trusting her a SECOND TIME. he “guilt tripped” her about leaving his sister to die in tondc, not for pulling the lever. check your facts. 

i dont know what world you can claim bellamy is abusive for getting upset with his friend for trying to sacrifice his sister + lying to him to manipulate him into continuing on his suicide mission + trusting the enemy that was the reason they’re so weighed down with guilt and self hatred

especially when ur completely silent about actual abuse: octavia hitting lincoln and beating the shit out of bellamy (which yall condone); lexa kidnapping clarke, blaming her for her own betrayal as an attempt to minimise clarke’s feelings of deep guilt and anger, and holding her against her will for two weeks; clarke spitting on, holding a knife against lex’s throat and telling her to kill herself, and abby slapping raven, a disabled teenager across her face for something her own daughter did

try telling me this isn’t a racist bias. 

14. Why is Clarke responsible for Bellamy’s actions? Why is her function in their relationship to keep him in line and absorb blame for his actions?

why the fuck do yall insist that clarke is responsible for bellamy’s actions? who do you constantly paint the brown man as abusive, sleazy, predatory and creepy? it’s literally canon that bellamy sided with pike because the grounders were a legitimate threat. we have 2 seasons of evidence that trusting lexa would not have been a wise decision for their survival. where the fuck is the proof that bellamy 

a. blamed clarke for his actions

b. would not have sided with pike if clarke was there (if clarke was at arkadia the situation would have never even occurred lmao) 

the only people who have accused bellamy of doing what he did because of clarke is you guys. stop pulling logic out of your ass to baselessly accuse men of color of being creepily dependent on girls in order to further demonize them

17. Why was the massacre of the Grounders treated as a morally grey decision when it was an objective act of war fueled by xenophobia and colonialist ideologies?

this is a show about survival where massacres occur every few episodes. this is so fucking offensive. you are literally accusing men of color of being xenophobic for killing an enemy army thats been attacking them since the premise of the show and is camped outside their gates. 

this is a fucking joke because abby, octavia, lexa and clarke play the roles of xenophobic white saviors and colonialists in the colonialism narrative and not only are you radio silent about that aspect, you tried to paint villainized men of color trying to survive as colonizers instead??? 

18. Why was Pike redeemed at the end? Why is Octavia being painted as an irrational character consumed by revenge for murdering Pike when both Pike and Bellamy’s actions stemmed from their desire for revenge?

i want to cry sometimes. brown people can get brutally assaulted whilst chained to rocks by white people for defending themselves in a war to exterminate them to that white women started and they were acting out of “revenge”. and their being abused and beaten bloody is not only justified but also rational? just come out and say you hate us

when i heard about 3x10, about bellamy being beaten bloody by octavia, i was shaking. i could not breathe. i had a panic attack when i saw a gifset of it and i started to cry. i had to block and blacklist people cheering it on. how dare you defend the violent white girl beating a man of color up? this is racism in it’s clearest form. do not even try pretending that you don’t hate us. 

19. If “anybody can die” why didn’t Bellamy answer for his involvement in the massacre?

so now you straight-up want the male lead dead. you want one of the two only southeast asian leads on tv dead for doing what other characters have been since the premise of the show. 

how has this racist bullshit gone on unchecked and encouraged for so long that yall dont even think about how fucking hateful and  RACIST it is? this is so scary and ugly. what is wrong with yall? what if someone had said this about lexa and mw? lesbopphobia. how have yall conditioned yourself to be so damn racist? next time ur gonna say something about bellamy, think about how you’d react if someone said it about lexa. 

48. “if Octavia is gonna face the consequences of killing pike, why isn’t Bellamy facing them for killing 300 peace warriors”

characters guilty of murder: clarke, lexa, abby, monty, jaha, kane, raven, bryan, finn, bellamy, pike, octavia, murphy, literally everyone

characters u want dead: bellamy and pike (and jaha for most people) aka the 3 men of color who are given agency, leadership positions and are not subservient to white women

edit: missed this gem 

60. will you develop Octavia point of view of proving her brother is wrong, or will you take out her agency and  make it all about Bellamy, because he was a bad brother and now need to fix his sister?

i am literally crying right now. 

white women can chain and beat men of color up until they’re bloody and collapse for something they didn’t do and you’re saying if the physical abuse is addressed, it’s going to ~strip octavia of her agency~ and make bellamy fix her?

how was octavia right? bellamy was one of the dozens of pike supporters and he literally tried to help her save lincoln but she chained him up. 

you know what. cheering and defending and supporting poc getting beaten bloody by ww is racist. implying she’s in the right is sickening. you really don’t see us as human beings worthy of respect or safety or the same consideration white girls get, do you?

start examining your racism the way you expect lesbophobia to be analysed.

stop making fandom so unsafe and triggering for people of color in name of your feminism.

and if you cannot talk about us without being racist and hateful, don’t talk about characters of color at all. if any criticism of lexa is lesbophobic, this shit is the worst kind of fandom racism i have ever encountered. if bc fans who hate lexa are homophobic, what the fuck are you? 

if you constantly tell people to think very carefully before they criticize lexa because she is a minority and most of their hate stems from homophobia, what about bellamy who is also a minority that’s FAR less represented on tv? 

lexa being invalidated, demonized, hated and criticized hurts you because she represents you. well, bellamy represents me. what if i constantly called lexa straight, creepy, sleazy, predatory, abusive, disgusting, a pedophile, lesbophobic (since u call bellamy, a man of color, xenophobic/racist)? do you have no fucking compassion? do you forget that bellamy represents people just as much as lexa does and they are both canonically good characters? can you at least try to be a little intersectional? how on earth do you not see that this is clear-cut, harmful racism you’re perpetuating in favour of white women and “feminism” and “wlw safe spaces”. 

thanks for proving time and again that white people, gay or not, are and always will be more privileged than men of color. 

ps, i ship clexa and i hate b/llarke. im a south asian wlw. and i can confirm that you have made this the most unsafe and triggering space for me and dozens of other girls like me on the entirety of the internet. this racist shit is so, so scary and disgusting. please learn to start stanning wlw without shitting on men of color. end your racist bias and end your double standards because it’s fucking terrifying and you’re not fooling anyone. you cannot keep hiding your racist propensity to hate/villainize/call for the abuse/deaths of men of color behind “feminism”.


Anonymous said: I’m wondering do you think there will be more meaningful scenes and and increase in interaction between Dean and Cas again this year? 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? Personally I only say with shows for seasons because of my investment in characters/relationships so ugh its more of a big deal for me :S

Hello dear,

I hope you don’t mind me using your message as an opportunity to also make this gifset to illustrate my point a bit. Sorry, it took so long to get back to you, but I’ve pretty much been on the road all day. So hopefully this will make some sense even though I am tired as hell. ;)

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!

yellowbabybunny  asked:

Can you do a YoungLo/BangJae fic based off this gifset? yasuis(.)tumblr(.)com/post/77933176381/its-like-yongguk-calling-youngjae-cute-and There are so many ways this could go, so I'm just gonna leave it to you wonderful, talented authors to decide where to take it. Thanks in advance! :D

Admin Feathers told me it is your B-Day today, so I moved your request to the top ^_^ I really hope you like it and THANK YOU so much for the amazing compliments >///< Hope you like it~! <3

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.

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?


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.

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.


She lets him take care of her bag without hesitation. I know it’s been nine years but CHARACTER GROWTH.


THIS MOMENT where V grabs the suitcase handle even though she sees Logan’s hand there and he doesn’t move it right away and BOTH OF THEIR HANDS ARE THERE FOR A SECOND. Oh god I need a minute or fifty.

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.

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 


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…

Originally posted by yourreactiongifs

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.
