yes i am tagging because people need to see her face omg

anonymous asked:

I'm really sad about something I don't understand and was hoping you could explain. Why do people block without giving a reason to? I don't why it first seems like it's all going so well then the next you're blocked and you don't know why or what you did or said wrong? It's happened twice now and to say it hurts is an understatement.

Oh, my precious Kabby babies.  Circle up, it’s time for some firm but gentle life advice from Mom. 

First of all, unless I personally am the person who blocked you (which I’m obviously not since we’re having this conversation!), in a very real sense the short answer to this question is that you know I can’t actually answer this question.  You’re asking me to tell you why a person I don’t know did a thing for which I have no context, and for which there could be a thousand reasons. So in a concrete, specific sense, my answer is: I do not know.

However.

(You knew there was going to be a however.)

Social media is a deeply personal avenue for self-expression and it’s also a world where many of us spend a great deal of our time, which means that we have the full and free right to customize it into exactly what we want it to be.  The things that you post are personal reflections of you, which is  why it bums you out when someone mutes or blocks or doesn’t follow back; it feels on some level like a personal rejection.  But the space you curate is also a personal reflection of you.  You have the right to post anything you want and other people have the right to choose not to see it.  Both of those rights are equal, even though you’re only on one side so naturally the other one feels like it’s in some way “wrong.”  

I’m speaking with zero context for what your preexisting relationship with these people was beforehand (like obviously if it was a close friend and they blocked you out of nowhere, you’re going to have to sort that out with them directly, I can’t advise you there), but it’s important to remember that there may be no “right” and wrong” in this scenario.  It’s fully possible for both of these things to peacefully coexist at the same time:

1) your absolute right to feel a little bit rejected and hurt that a stranger on the internet made the choice that they didn’t want your social media sphere to overlap with their social media sphere,

and

2) that other person’s absolute right to say “if something or someone makes me feel even the tiniest bit ‘nope’ I am purging it out of this space so it is exactly what I want and need it to be.” 

They don’t need to have a reason.  That sucks, when you’re on the receiving end of it, which all of us have been - it truly and genuinely sucks - but it’s also reality.  One of the hard truths that incidents like this make us sometimes have to face - and we don’t want to face these things, because they can feel really icky and vulnerable and ping all the little gremlins in our brain  - is this:

nobody on the internet owes you their time or attention for anything you do or say.

This sounds mean and brutal, and I don’t mean it to be, because you know mom loves you, but it’s incredibly important, so I’m going to say it again to make sure that if nothing else, this gets through:

nobody on the internet owes you their time or attention for anything you do or say.

The celebs you stan don’t owe you a response to your tweet, just because you want one.  The people you tag in meta don’t owe you reblogging it to continue having that conversation with you forever, just because you want to prove you’re right.  The fans of the fic you write for your most popular ship don’t owe you crossing over to give you hits on your rare-pair fic if they don’t feel like it.  Nobody owes you a certain number of followers, nobody owes you a response to every anon you send them, nobody owes you finishing that fic you like in time for them to read it when they feel like reading it.  We owe each other one thing and one thing only: basic human decency.  That’s it.  Everything else is freely offered to the world, and freely taken by the people who want it.  It’s not a transactional exchange.  If you make art or write fic and you put it out there into the world, you’ve done a cool thing, and whether it gets ten hits or thousands it was still worth doing.  There will be people who aren’t interested, but if you get hung up on feeling rejected by that, it will paralyze you.

Social media is personal. That’s unavoidable.  It’s an extension of ourselves.  When someone is cruel to you or to one of your friends on the internet, even if it’s an anonymous stranger, it feels shitty.  When you express an opinion about something and a ton of people reblog it and the tags are full of “OMG YES THISSSSS”, it feels great.  We all experience that in different ways.  Society has always selected arbitrary measures for young girls and women to live up to in order to feel like they’re popular or they’re approved by the cool kids, and right now it’s things like “how many followers do you have” and “did you get an RT from a celebrity” and “how many likes on your posts”.  So on a primal level, maybe having someone you thought was a friend block you on Twitter or Tumblr hits you in the same deep core place as having the cool kids not come to your birthday party.  That feeling is super real!  It brings up alllllll that deep stuff we try to hide and pretend that we’re above experiencing, but we all have those squishy vulnerable inner selves that just need the cool kids to like us and we feel bad when they don’t.  

I had this exact conversation with my therapist a few weeks ago when she was giving me a hard time because my book has 60 reviews on Amazon, of which like the majority are 5 stars with two negative ones, and I have both the negative ones like memorized.  And she was like “CLAIRE.  WHAT THE HELL.  WHY DO YOU DO THIS?  58 POSITIVE AND YOU CANNOT QUOTE A SINGLE ONE.  TWO SHITTY ONES AND YOU KNOW THEM VERBATIM.  THAT IS NOT HEALTHY BEHAVIOR.”  And I was like “… . okay fine when you put it that way, yes I do sound like a crazy person.”  So like my advice to you – advice which I have just proven I am absolute garbage at taking myself, so like I may have just eroded my own credibility in my efforts to help – is to remember that you probably have a lot more than two followers so honestly this is probably not a bad collective ratio, and there may be lots of people who are very interested in what you have to say but you’ve focused a lot of your energy on these two people and it’s worth giving some thought as to why that is.

My question for you is this: what is the net negative impact of having these two people block you on social media? Like in an actual, concrete way, separate from those sort of core gut “I feel unloved in this moment” feelings, what is the effect on your life?  You might be surprised.  It might be zero.  In which case, let yourself feel those feelings, experience them as valid, and then breathe through them and move on and keep on doin’ you. 

I’m pushing back on you a little bit here very gently because it feels, reading this anon, like you’ve made a determination of hurtful intent on the part of the person who blocked you, or at the very least a certainty that this choice that made was about you and not about them.  That the fact that things seemed to be going fine and then they blocked you means you were somehow intentionally misled or mistreated.  Be really, really, really careful about deciding the cool girl didn’t come to your birthday party because she’s a bitch who wanted to make you feel terrible and is sitting somewhere cackling at the thought of your sad lil’ face waiting by the front door; maybe she didn’t come to your birthday party because she has depression and it’s hard for her to leave the house sometimes and she knew your party would be loud and wild and crazy and too much for her brain to handle right now. Be careful about presuming negative intent with no proof it exists.  The internet makes this so easy, the internet conditions us for this, and it conditions us to respond in kind. The worst thing you could do here is to, like, make a callout post or subtweet in the hopes that it will get back to them and they’ll feel bad, or to sic your other followers onto them, because that turns this into a situation that really does have a right and wrong; and since you don’t know if they were trying to make you feel shitty, or just went on a big block/mute purge to whittle their list down for mental health reasons that are totally their own, once things escalate you can’t put the horse back in the barn. It’s too late.  Now it’s A Thing, when maybe it never really needed to be A Thing.  And in almost all situations for almost all people in almost all ways, Kabby Mom’s advice is going to be, “please think carefully before you make this A Thing.”

This got long, I’ve been having a lot of thoughts lately about the conversations I’m always having with fandom folks the way we let social media permeate and shape our sense of self, in good ways and bad, so I apologize for my verbosity but also not really because that’s how things roll over in Kabby Mom’s Advice Corner.  But I will sum up in bullet points for those of you who have been skimming, to bring you up to speed:

  1. Everyone has the right to curate their own social media space however they see fit, and they don’t have to explain their reasons.
  2. They aren’t obligated to include you in that space even if you want them to.
  3. None of that is an objective measure of your worth as a person or a sign that you should stop being you on the internet.
  4. Your feelings of rejection come from a real place and you get to feel them, as long as
  5. You are striving to move through them without permitting them to paralyze you, and finally
  6. You never use someone else’s choice to curate their social media sphere as a justification for treating them like crap.

Focus on your positive interactions instead of negative ones – your friends, creating stuff and putting it out into the universe – whether it be art, fic, opinions, a podcast, gifsets, crackposts, whatever – and your social media world will be a better place.

In the immortal words of the great Michael J. Fox, “What other people think of me is none of my business.”

Dirty Laundry Discourse

Over the past few days I have seen an overwhelming amount of discourse complaining about the fic Dirty Laundry by @gibslythe​ that is a Voltron college AU fic featuring Lance x Keith. I’m going to address these concerns, and the frankly ridiculous nature tumblr has of attacking things that get popular.

So first of all, Dirty Laundry has gotten an unprecedented amount of attention in a tiny timeframe. It’s gotten so popular it has it’s own tag. And of course, as what happens when things get popular, they go under a lot of scrutiny.

Claim 1: Dirty Laundry is written by a white girl. She has no place writing this story.

This is completely and utterly false. In Dirty Laundry, Lance and his family are Mexican-American. Now, there would be a problem here if the story was about the struggle of being a Mexican-American. Or even if the main theme of the story was the Mexican-American story. But it’s not. Dirty Laundry is a romantic comedy about two boys falling in love. One of those boys just happens to be Mexican-American. The Mexican story should be written by Mexicans. But anybody can write a story with Mexican characters. It’s about diversity. If we could each only write exactly what we are, all the stories in the world would be… boring. And diversity is a good thing. Getting in a mindset to write something other than what you are is healthy.

Especially since it is now so popular, and everybody is aware that the author is white, as well as having disclaimers in the fic, you are aware you are consuming media created by a white person. If you don’t like that, create some yourself! Encourage your latinx friends to write some too! PoC authors are just as important as PoC representation, so get on that folks.

Claim 2: Lance is Cuban, and the author wrote him as Mexican. This is erasure and racist. 

So there is one line in Voltron that hints at Lance being Cuban. It’s in Episode 4 when he says “There’s only one planet in the world that has Varadero beach, the pizza shack, and my moms hugs..“  So he said that he loves Varadero beach, which is in Cuba, but loving a place doesn’t mean you’re from there. Granted, the reference to his mom does seem to suggest Lance is Cuban. But nothing is confirmed. Headcannoning Lance as Mexican-American is not bad, or inherently racist, especially since nothing has been confirmed. Cuban Lance is great. Mexican-American Lance is great. 

Claim 3: There are harmful “ugly” tropes in Dirty Laundry.

This one is hard for me to find, so I’ll address all the accusations I’ve seen made.

  • The large family: the author of Dirty Laundry is not the one who came up with this. It’s from the original Voltron content that Lance has a big family, the author of Dirty Laundry just put names and personalities to all the faces.
  •   Also, how is having a big family a bad thing? I could see it might be troubling, especially if they were seen as poor or there were negative gendered stereotypes that can come with having a large family, but the author’s rendition of the Sanchez family have a big house, land, animals, and own a successful business. They’re not poor by any means… Also, in the fic it’s Christmas, so all the family is coming home to visit, they don’t all live there. My family does this too. Not a problem.
  • Autistic child: This one I just can’t believe. In the latest chapter (Chapter 9), there is an introduction of an autistic child, Alexei. Now Alexei is a young kid. And autism is a spectrum. There is no set way for an autistic person to “act.” People are complaining because Alexei told everyone she had sensory issues, while very carefully pronouncing it, as well as announcing to the family she is autistic at the dinner table. Like, guys… she’s 6. And kids with special needs, whatever they may be (like allergies) are often taught to memorize a phrase to help them express this. For a child to do that is not unheard of. Also, how dare you people claim she’s not “autistic enough.” Stop with this. Also, the author has plenty of experience with autism, and is capable of portraying it correctly. There is currently a total of one (1) chapter with Alexei. We barely know anything about her. She was barely introduced. Let’s all take a minute to breathe before we jump on the “ableism” witch hunt.
  • Lance referring to himself as “President Taquito” in the group chat: guys, this is Lance we’re talking about. The kid is a dork. He’d probably giggle at that. Also, taquitos aren’t a commonly appropriated Mexican food by white people. Like if he was President Nachos, or taco, quesadilla or fajita then I could see a problem. But flautas and taquitos aren’t really as well known, at least here in Texas. 
  • Homophobic/biphobic men: Lance’s dad, Jaime, is having problems accepting his son’s sexuality and does say some harmful things. But he does seem to genuinely love his son. Maybe people are complaining about the men of this fic not being accepting of Lance’s sexuality? But his older brother Danny is a grown, married, man with a child. And he’s completely fine with Lance’s bisexuality, and when confronted with the fact that his own son “wants a boyfriend” and claims Keith is his boyfriend, Danny’s only worry is that Keith is much older than Mateo and that he hopes it’s not serious. Also, Benji is completely fine with Lance’s sexuality. So… I don’t see the problem here?
  • La chancla: So la chancla has become a common latinx joke that is rooted in a common shared experience in the latinx community. Because in the recent past, corporal punishment was widely accepted in the world at large and in the latinx community. Is this somehow making light of abuse? No. No one in Dirty Laundry is abused, nor is it made light of. UPDATE: Important note: Mexican characters and Mexican people can joke about Mexican culture. White people, fans and characters included, should not.

So in conclusion, I can’t find anything that screams racism or terrible. All I see are original, thought out, and well-planned characters.

Claim 4: Dirty Laundry is terrible and racist and I’m going to go yell at the author.

Okay, how fucked up are you? First and foremost, the author is a minor. If you are comfortable with being a terrible person and harassing a child, then congratulations, you are a horrible person and stay away from me. Secondly, let’s pretend this was a problematic fanfic, even though I can’t find a reason it would be. The instant somebody with goodhearted intentions makes a mistake, y’all all want to burn them at the stake. Seriously. Save your efforts for actual racism, and for terrible unapologetic people. The author has been made aware of the few people who are complaining’s concerns, and has made every effort to address them. 

Claim 5: Latinx people don’t like Dirty Laundry.

Here is a list of people and posts of latinx people who are fans of Dirty Laundry.

If you’re not latinx, then you are not qualified to claim it as misrepresentative or appropriative. You have no right to speak over latinx people, and I am aware that includes me. The majority of people who have problems with Dirty Laundry are white or other minorities. 

Conclusion: Stop harassing a minor for a piece of fanfiction. If you don’t like Dirty Laundry you have two options: don’t read it, or make a polite–or at the very least intelligent–post about what you find so wrong with it with proof and references.

UPDATE: to express your support for @gibslythe, post in the tag #dirtylaundress. Especially if you’re latinx and/or autistic, we want to hear from you. It’s time to spread some love now. Let’s undo a bit of the damage.

UPDATE 2: The perpetrator of the mob mentality has since apologized for inciting the mass antagonizing of the author, and so have their public supporters.  They have rescinded their comments about Dirty Laundry being racist. 

As a fandom, we decide where to go from here. The latinx and Mexican communities have been doing a great job of verbalizing their support, please continue to do so. I am now asking you, not to turn around and harass these people. They did a terrible thing when they started this, yes. But they apologized. Don’t turn into the bad guy by doing the exact same thing.

Last 20 stories posted/updated:

Trends/Patterns? As always, I usually just dive right into the story with minimal set-up details, which I usually intersperse later as needed. I seem to always start with either dialogue, how the character feels, or an action description. I almost never describe the setting, which fits with my biggest writing flaw of almost no background description LOL

1. Amortentia - Drarry

While Harry was studiously attempting to avoid so much as glancing towards their roommate, Ron was blatantly staring. He stood leaning against one of the end posts of his bed, arms crossed, expression cold, as he watched Malfoy unpack his things. The air was so thick with tension that Harry wished someone would say something, but he desperately didn’t want to be the one to do it.

2. Warmth - Parvansy

“Parkinson!”

Pansy jerked at the sound of her name, almost spilling the contents of her bag all over her desk. Parvati caught her eye, and then nodded her head to the empty seat next to her.

“You owe me for helping you in Herbology last week. You’re partnering with me today.” Parvati’s voice was firm, and she had that glint in her eye. All of the Slytherins knew that glint. The Gryffindor glint. Not to be underestimated. And not to be messed with unless one had a plan, and an escape strategy for when it inevitably went pear-shaped. Bloody Gryffindors.

3. Board Games and Rude Awakenings - Drarry

At first, Harry had been nervous, and felt out of place. After a couple of drinks, and nothing more than some rather tame teasing, he relaxed. Blaise was pouting and arguing with Pansy about the legality of the action she’d just made on Harry’s behalf. Harry had no idea what game they were playing, and still didn’t understand the rules, even after having them explained to him three times. But there was an elaborately charmed board, little miniature characters, and a lot of violence.

4. Playing Along - Drarry

Harry sucked in a deep breath. There were footsteps outside. They passed. When he exhaled, he managed to mutter a spell to lock his office door. His hands gripped the far edge of his desk. The near edge was digging into his stomach. He closed his eyes, and inhaled again. Slowly.

“What happened to all that Gryffindor bravery? Scared you might get fired if we get caught?”

Harry shuddered.

“Shut your fucking mouth, Malfoy.”

There was a puff of warm air against his skin. Against his spine. Halfway down, and getting lower, as Malfoy chuckled. 

5. Crumbling Facade - Drarry

Draco tried to ignore everything around him as he organised his things the way he liked. The eighth year students were split between dorm rooms, and the houses were mixed. He’d been hoping he would be placed with Theo, or no Slytherin at all. He’d been dreading sharing a dorm room with Blaise. Perhaps if Goyle had returned the odds would have been in his favour, but they were not.

           "Oh! Hello again,“ There’s a white dog that always seems to follow you when you pass the Daily Planet.

My First Impressions of "And the Fatal Separation"

I haven’t done one of these at all this season! But this is probably one of my favourite episodes ever. This is really my second watch, but I was studying at the same time and didn’t get the full experience. But here we go~~~

-A bunch of Asian characters. Asian-centric episode. Y E S.

-Stone’s kickass fight scene. I’m ready to see him kick some more ass in the next season and episodes. I love that Christian Kane didn’t use a stunt double for this part besides the flip. 

-Monkey King. I love his character. And does he just keep that tail coiled up all the time? 

-In martial arts, there’s always a ‘death punch’. Why is this a thing?

-BANANA SMOOTHIES. that’s so cute. Jake doesn’t want magic, well you get a smoothie.

-Wow, Charlene’s candle is a whole candelabra. Dang.

-Baird’s candle being the next largest. Brilliant.

-EZEKIEL JONES’ CANDLE IS A BIRTHDAY CANDLE. I LOVE THAT.

-Flynn……….. why is your candle almost oooooout?

-They have smoothies in a tiger cup. TIGER CUP. Omg, cute.

-YES badass Asian woman.

-Whoa, on and off switch. I love Cassandra’s gift, it’s one of the coolest things about this show.

-Eve and Cassandra having a girl moment. There hasn’t been enough moments of them bonding, but the few are so special.

-Can I be Eve Baird?

-HE SURVIVED THE WATERFALL.

-These outfits! Ezekiel’s shirt! Cassandra’s outfit! Why do we not dress like this more people????????

Carisi-centric thoughts on Ep 18x01

I’ll start with some overall thoughts all of which may not be pleasant, because we have a new showrunner.

The episode was tense but unevenly paced. The format felt very old school L&O. The first half is the case, and the second half is the trial. In the first half the ADA/lawyers barely appear, and in the second half the cops barely appear. That may be because of Rick Eid’s L&O past, but I’m not sure that’s a good thing.

I do think it’ll be great to get more Barba In Action scenes, because the courtroom stuff was almost non-existent at times in the last few seasons, but they need to work on the episode structure a little more. Characters kept disappearing for large chunks of the ep, and the tone was all over the place, which ruined the flow. Half the time it was like “OMG GUNS, SHOOTINGS, DEATH” and the rest of the time it was all somber and lowkey.

Also, the squad is severely understaffed. It was glaring in this ep. Sonny and Amanda kept working all the leads. Liv still gets out there, and Fin is still barely there (plus he’ll be the Sergeant soon), so there are only two detectives left. We really need another squad member or two.

And another thing, regarding Daddy Dodds; I posted that I was excited to see Liv struggling with her guilt, and having to deal with the grieving father of the cop she lost, but what we got in the premiere was not that. It was the classic, standard, same-old “Olivia has an asshole boss” storyline we’ve gotten so many times before. Peter Gallagher brought it, especially in that one moment when he explicitly blamed her, but the writing was just not there for anything more complex. And Dodds himself was never really acknowledged, certainly not by his teammates. My already low expectations were not met.

But let’s get to Sonny :D

Sonny’s New Hair

FLAWLESS.

Sonny’s Butt

YES.

No but seriously, we did get two nice butt shots, for some reason, one of which was unecessarily long lol what am i saying it was totally necessary, thank you @nbcsvu

Sonny’s Grey Pants

TIGHT AS EVER ANd ok ok let’s get to the serious stuff.

Sonny’s Temper

I was a little taken aback by Sonny’s anger, and I’m not going to lie, I really hope it was this particular case which triggered his reaction and not an overall character shift. The truth is, Sonny is the de facto male lead now (as opposed to the comic relief, which he was in S16, and the strong supporting player he was in S17), and I fear the SVU writers don’t know how to write for a male lead without resorting to anger and violence.

That said, I would appreciate seeing Sonny further shifting into a leadership role within the squad. With each season, we’ve gotten a slightly different iteration of him (and Peter has somehow managed to keep the character consistent). If last night’s episode was a sign of that, fine. As long as it’s done organically and not by changing the essence of the character.

Also, to be fair, Sonny has been physical before (with Tommy, when he thought Bella was being cheated on, and with certain perps like that creepy dentist who molested his niece). And this was a very out-of-the-ordinary case which warranted his agitation. I still don’t know why he had to, like, yell like that, but I’m hopeful it was just premiere intensity (everything turned up to eleven). I mean, in one scene Sonny was like ‘oh well, let’s check out this address I guess’ and in the next he was like “DO YOU PAY HIS RENTTTT???????!!!!!!” Which, again, pacing and tonal issues. All over this episode. Even Fin was off. I hope they course-correct.

Sonny and Continuity

Thankfully we didn’t go wrong there. First of all, we got a classic Dr. Carisi moment, when he was all “I can tell from this note that this boy’s mother loves him deeply,” because Sonny is a non-licensed therapist, obviously. Not to mention, Dr. Carisi continues to always be right (the mom did love her kid, despite everything). Secondly, we got a solid reference to Sonny’s love of food (spanakopita!) and the fact Sonny literally knows every single diner plus their specialty. Also, we got know-it-all Sonny, when he was all “obviously they cut him loose, Rollins, they can get more leads that way, have you never watched a network procedural???”

And we also got, “Promise.” We got perceptive Sonny, knowing Liv is in a bad place. Knowing she’s worried, knowing she doesn’t want to lose anyone else. I said it in a previous post, but that was such a sweet, genuinely caring thing to say. “Promise.” That’s what Liv wanted to hear, and Sonny wanted to reassure her. That’s what he does. He always knows when his work family has problems (Liv, Barba, Amanda) and he always knows just what to say. Oh and another point for continuity, because Sonny continues to be sassy (his face when Fin put that racist asshole in his place? Gold.).

I gotta say, I also think Peter did a lot to keep Sonny in character despite the mostly expository writing and the added yelling. His lines didn’t help, but his expressions did. The sassy moment with Fin, the sassy moment with Amanda (“Call Barba”), the hilarious look he exchanged with Barba, the way he looked at Liv when she said “follow my lead” (because she sounded shaky, and he was concerned). I trust Peter to keep Sonny, well, Sonny. Always.

Sonny and The Law

A missed opportunity. There was an important question at the center of the episode, but there was no real discussion of it. I would have loved to get everyone’s thoughts on it, not just Liv’s. She did argue with Barba, but it was so soft and friendly. I wish someone had gone against her with arguments, instead of anger (like Daddy Dodds did). Speaking of, Daddy Dodds did quip “omg Liv, are you a cop or a defense attorney?” but Sonny is both a cop and an attorney, and we didn’t get to hear his opinion. Or anyone else’s. I would have appreciated, say, Liv and Amanda agreeing 100% and Sonny and Fin (lol who?) disagreeing with them, partially (like Barba) or competely. Like we used to get on early SVU.

The Barisi Corner

Again, I said it before, but they have come SO far. For them to share a knowing look, like that, for Barba to turn to Sonny, of all people, as if to say “omg Carisi do you believe this shit?”, that’s big. Sonny used to be the cause of those eye rolls, and now he’s in on them. That little moment (for which I credit Peter and Raul, who love working together :D) perfectly displayed their continued closeness, and Barba’s changed attitude. Yet another point for continuity.

Also yes they stood next to each other and Sonny was mixing patterns and that tie was very Barba-esque and they look so handsome when they’re in the same frame and they’re in love :’) wait no, that’s in my upcoming episode tag yes you heard me i’m writing it

Stray Thoughts

Death threats? What death threats?

Fin taking the Sergeant’s exam? What is a Fin?

Rollins has a kid? Where?

Hostage Negotiation? lol nah, Tucker will still be investigating cops.

Non-Stray, Perfectly Relevant Thought

Peter and Raul were looking especially delicious. I love their new hair.

anonymous asked:

Sole that whenever something goes wrong is convinced its demons and goes through ridiculous amounts to get rid of it.

I’m calling upon the spirit’s of Danny Phantom’s parents to channel the Sole I will be writing. I have absolutely no doubts that Deacon and Mac would tag-team Sole to mess with their fear of demons. Lol omg it’s be great. Comedy gold right there anon. Hats of to you love


Ada: “There are a great many things in life that are left unanswered. The absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence” she nodded wisely as Sole began packing up all of their things in preparation to move to the Capital Wasteland. It didn’t matter if Sole thought the houses were baby eating demons, she would still walk through fire for them. Even hell fire.

Cait: “Oh for the love of… not this again!” she cried as Sole smashed the bloodbug to smithereens on their gigantic melee cross they carried around with them. Always when they were fighting a horde of ferals or gunners, bloodbugs seemed to come out of nowhere. Sole was convinced they were doing demons work trying to get their souls so they had to “exorcise” them. With their 4ft tall heavy wooden cross… Repeatedly bashing them over and over… Until there was nothing left.

Codsworth: “D-D-D-Demons?!?!?!?! W-W-Whatever do you m-m-mean?” his chassis shook violently and he held his trembling arms up closer to his eyes as Sole nodded seriously as they held up the 39 grenades they were going to blow up the place with. This place was haunted! Mum/Sir was just being extremely careful! It was the right thing to do!

Curie: “Oh I do not think you need to be alarmed! I think we should check ze facts before jumping to any conclusions, oui?” she desperately tried to convince Sole before they put their fifth garland of herbs around their neck as demon repellant. Deathclaws were synonymous with demons for Sole, especially since they seemed to come out of nowhere and when the pair didn’t need to see them the most. Perhaps Curie would prepare a little fun lesson teaching them about the practical application of herbs instead! That way they could have more insight. That would be fun, yes!

Danse: “Soldier pick your gun back up!” In a house they were exploring, a door mysteriously swung closed. Sole, convinced demons use technology as a medium into their world rid themselves of their laser weapon. Danse nervously glanced around “besides… it was probably just the wind or something.” *creak* “AH! What was that?” Danse now always has a set of non-energy weapons at the ready. No spooky demon gun today thanks!

Deacon: One time he accidentally made the mistake of walking into a room which disrupted Sole’s salt circles they places around the premises. He jumped about 5ft in the air when they screamed bloody murder to push him out. Because he’s Deacon, he took advantage of the situation, convulsing and shaking. “Sole…I-I can’t…. It’s taking… over… meee!” *In a much lower voice* “Deacon is gone.”

Dogmeat: Sole was always so convinced the demons lay somewhere in the world but what they did not know was that the real demon walked beside them in their physical canine form. Bethesda sold the main character’s soul of every fallout game to the devil and now he lies in wait for their death to eat their soul MUAHAHAHA!

Hancock: “I’m just saying, you might see some things that you’re…. not expecting…” He put his hand over his face in embarrassment as Sole opened video file on their pip boy.  In the dead of night, sometimes Sole could hear their name being called. The voice was barely audible but distinct enough to where they could make out their name so Sole set up secret cameras all around their house. Convinced they were going to see some supernatural demon they were understandably shocked when they saw Hancock saunter into a room in the dead of night masturbating while moaning their name. Sole smacked him.

MacCready: When Mrs. Abernathy got kidnapped for the millionth time, Sole was utterly convinced their house was possessed by demons and insisted on performing an exorcism. It was completely insane in his opinion but they’re the boss. Sole whipped out a Ouija board or something out of seemingly nowhere and made MacCready sit down with them, placing his hands on the board. After explaining the rules he immediately knew he was going to use this knowledge for evil. He moved the piece. “WoooOOoahh! Boss I’m not moving it are you moving it?” Sole’s eyes bulged. He was going to try to be cute and spell out “I luv u” but before he could get to the 3rd letter, Sole swiped the board off the table and said they needed to burn the place down. Woah okay let’s get out of here boss.

Nick Valentine: “I think the spookiest thing in this room right now is you…” He said as Sole continued to chant banishment scripts from their demon voodoo book. They had just gotten locked out of a terminal on the first try. Most people would think, ‘oh a computer glitch’ but not Sole. Nope. Well at least it was entertaining. He folded his arms and watched in amusement at Sole’s ritual. After an hour, Nick finally offered to help and fixed the computer within 2 seconds. Sole, amazed at his exorcism abilities, swore to stay by his side so he could be their protector to ward off demons. Well… being by their side forever didn’t sound half bad!

Piper: “Blue come on, let me out! I was just kidding, I’m not really possessed. Or am I?” Dang it! She couldn’t help herself. It was just so easy to bait Sole and so hilarious to see them thrust their shoddy make-shift cross in her face as she stood behind a locked jail cell (courtesy of Sole) while they screamed incantations. Might as well play along. Piper dropped to the ground pretending to cringe and contort as the “demon” left her body. Sole threw the cell door open and jumped into her arms. Sometimes Piper wished she didn’t mess with Sole so much, but she couldn’t help it if they were going to be this cute.

Preston: He’s right along with Sole. Need to set up a barrier around the whole house? What about the whole settlement? What about all the settlements? He carried around a cross and exorcism book because if goodness gracious forbid his lovely Sole gets possessed then he would have to take over the noble duty. Too bad exorcisms couldn’t work on ferals or super mutants or gunners. It worked so well on the demons!

Strong: “HUMAN SEE ENEMIES STRONG DON’T? TELL STRONG WHERE THEY ARE! RAAAAAAAH!!” He smashed a window. Then punched a hole through the wall. Then threw the terminal out the door. Demons are probably too afraid of Strong to even bother possessing anyone close to him.

X6-88: “Ma’am/Sir this is inappropriate use of Institute technology” he said reproachfully as he entered the room Sole had locked themselves in for 3 days. Camera monitors were hooked up to handmade EMF devices plus chemical/temperature gauges. They had also stolen a shit ton of stuff to pull this off. Everyone was getting a little ticked off at Sole’s commandeering of the Institute for their personal demon hunting headquarters. X6 had to explain for the umpteenth time that the drop in temperature was due to the sensors shutting the AC off, not because of demons.

~Extra~

Maxson: “Sentinel, please stop putting these on board. It is starting to frighten the other soldiers.” Sole had put up a silver cross in every room, convinced the Prydwen was haunted. Maxson was only concerned with things that he could feel, touch, and see, not invisible threats. Or at least he told himself so. As he awake at night, feeling the pressing need to use the restroom, he was suddenly gripped with fear. He wasn’t scared. No way. He was the Elder. But he still grabbed a silver cross Sole left in his room as he walked down the dark halls, just in case.

Glory: “Yup, I’m out.” She threw her hands up as Sole dropped to their knees to chant the ancient secret ritual for getting rid of demons that had been passed down through their family for generations. They had just seen a Brahmin fly. Fly. It was standing there and then suddenly it started floating up up and away. Glory wasn’t gonna have it. She let Sole do her thing. The duo never did realize that it wasn’t demons at all, it was just a Bethesda glitch.

Soooo as i told you in a post, when i was at Pierrefonds, i met this guy who worked here when they were filming Merlin. We talked a lot, like more than 2 hours i think (because we kept running into each other). He was so nice! I told him what the cast has been doing since Merlin, that Colin got the best drama actor award (he was so proud!)  and all that. And then, he told me everything he could think of about our beloved cast. It wasn’t necessary new, or even interesting but talking about my favorite actors with someone who actually knew them was, for me, amazing! So i wanted to share with you some anectodes. So here’s (let’s call him Mr X) Mr X’s anecdotes about the cast (oh and i apologize for any english mistakes, not my mother language) : 

  • Colin was the sweetest, he was always nice, smiling and polite. (what a surprise!) He always said hello to everyone. He was also very profesional. One day, he was talking with Mr X in the yard, then the director shouted ‘action’ and he was running, shooting the scene. He came back walking and continue to chat casually with Mr X, and then he was off running again. And this for a whole morning. He wans’t even tired, he just continued his talk with Mr X. 
  • At first, he entered in the castle alone, but in the end he needed 5 bodyguards. One day, a girl even tried to snach his hair. Poor Cols got really scared, they took him to a locked room after that. (fans can be so stupid sometimes, Colin was afraid to go out of the castle after that).
  • There was a day when they found him on the floor of the corridor, he was pretty hurt. But he came back 48 hours later to film. He told Mr X that the french hospital services were good. Mr X wonders if he didn’t fake his accident to escape Perrefonds because of the tension between Bradley and the crew. (personnally i don’t think so, it doesn’t sound like him).
  • What always amazed Mr X was the energy of Colin, he was always descending the stair or running around with an incredible speed without falling. It was impressive. (hehe i bet running isn’t the only thing he can do with an incredible speed).
  • In the Pierrefonds golden book, he signed in french 'j'ai la patate’ which is a funny way to say 'i feel good, i’m in a good shape’ (and if you don’t think that is the cutest thing ever..).
  • At lunch, one day, before shooting the stables scene in the 2x02, Colin had to eat with his 'horse manure’ all over his face because the make up was too long to redo. While he was chatting with the others, Bradley was laughing his ass off. (sounds like Bradley).
  • Mr X found Colin one day in the 'echo room’ of the castle, he was showing it to the new actress girl of s5, after showing her around the whole castle (how sweet *w*)
  • Colin was very emotional to the idea of leaving France at the end of 5, he was very very sad, he almost cried. ( :( )
  • Bradley was the total opposite of Colin. He was more arrogant. He never said hello. Mr X said that it was because he was fiancé or engaged at the beginning of Merlin and that his girl was receiving death treats from fans. So he kinda built this shell to protect himself and his lover from the world. But once you get to know him, he becomes nicer. On the last day, he finally said 'bonjour monsieur’ to Mr X. 
  • A fan one day heard where his hotel room was (because Bradley’s driver said on the radion 'i am taking him to the.blablabla hotel’). She paid a room there and knocked on his door. He was very pissed. 
  • He was sometimes bossing around the crew. One day the crew had enough and they had an argument. They spoke to him after that and he became a better person. (maybe it’s the intervention that Colin talks about here)
  • Otherwise, as we know, he was very sporty and always had fun between scenes, while Colin was always rereading his script. But Colin and him were, according to Mrs X, as close in real life as Merlin and Arthur are. (iiiiiih)

  • Anthony was very sweet, he even took the time to take pics with all the crew of Pierrefonds.  One day, Mr X’s daugther stole his sword, but instead of being angry, he was laughing very hard. He was one of the nicest guy. He even brought his kids one day. (this man i swear)
  • Richard was unrecognizable without his wing and with his sunglasses on. Sometimes, people thought he was just a visitor of Pierrefonds!
  • As he was a famous old actor, he was very strict on the way of working. He was angry anytime something was wrong on set. He knew exactly how he wanted to work and disliked when thing didn’t go his way. 
  • He, too, had his group of fangirls waiting for him at Pierrefonds.

  • He didn’t say much about Katie and Angel, apart from the fact that they were adorable and nice. (oww girls, i knew it)
  • All the actors must have bodyguards. Even Tom Hopper. So, one morning, Mr X saw Tom Hopper coming into the castle with…a tiny little girl next to him. He asked him if she was her bodyguard, he answered yes with a funny face that suggested that he didn’t understand the point. (a tiny girl to protect Tom omg)

  • Santiago was also very kind. One afternoon, he was smoking but Mr X told him that he wasn’t allow to do it here so he gently stopped. He was loved by every girl, even Mr X’s friends were crazy about him. (how can you blame them)
  • I suggested the idea of doing a meeting actors/fans at Pierrefonds. Mr X wasn’t sure if it was possible, but thought it was a brillant idea and said he will try to…. I’m not saying this will happen, but it was worth the shot. Also, the actors NEVER went back to Pierrefonds!

Then he talk to me about how Merlin was film, about the special effects etc… I just want to see him again so he could tell me more! I’m sure he has plenty other anecdotes to tell!

Insurgent: My “review”

Movie talk time! I’ve taken my time to write this because I don’t want to forget anything. So this post might get updated a couple of times. I’ve probably forgot a lot. THIS IS LONG AND I’M SORRY BUT I HAVE A LOT OF FEELS. CONCLUSION IS GO WATCH INSURGENT!

Because I love Carol so much that I need to say this. That’s why.

Here are a few more of my thoughts on Carol in “Not Tomorrow Yet.”

If you dislike Tobin or watch TWD only for the C@ryl ship (never thought we’d hit a place where I’d censor my own ship tag, but wow, wacky fandom is wacky), you won’t want to read this. Cheers, and happy scrolling!

Ashton Irwin Imagine AU - You're Both Famous YouTubers with Crushes on Each Other

Hi guys! So this is the new fic, and I’ll probably do a part two, but tell me if I should? Anyway, basically, you’re a famous YouTuber with a secret crush on Ashton, who has a not-so-secret crush on you.

Tell me if you like it! Sorry for any mistakes, I pulled an all-nighter trying to sort some shit out with my friends and now my brain is pretty much a vat of useless mush. 

This one’s pretty much pure, unashamed fluff, so the only warning is for slight language. Thanks <3 

It had been ages since you had checked your channel – you’d been away with your family on holiday for the past week and a half, and knowing your subscribers had most likely been commenting and you hadn’t been able to check up on them was making you worry.

Especially since you had no way of knowing just how much feedback you were going to have to sift through when you opened up your social media.

When you finally logged on to twitter, you were pleasantly surprised: shockingly they weren’t too interested in your absence. Most of the tweets clogging your feed were just telling you to check out a channel you were already (secretly) majorly obsessed with. You wondered what had changed, and decided to tweet about it.

@Y/T/N: what’s all this fuss about @ashirwiexofficial??

Almost the moment you hit tweet, your feed was filling up with tweets from your subscribers.

@irwiexy/n: @Y/T/N omg I ship it so hard

The rest said something similar, although there were quite a few with only a link to some video. You decided to investigate. The link took you to a page on ashtonirwinxofficial’s channel, entitled: Popular YouTuber Tag feat. penguinsofficial!

The thumbnail showcased a familiar adorable curly-haired boy with dimples and sparkling hazel-ish eyes sitting next to a tall, broad boy with straight blonde hair styled into a quiff, and a lip ring.

You clicked play, though you tended to handle tags with a bit of distaste; you usually thought of them as an excuse not to produce original content. But it was Ashton, and you (secretly) loved Ashton, so you decided to forgo your hesitation.

He was adorable, as usual.

“Hi guys! So I know I kind of promised not to do tag videos too much, and I really don’t usually like to do them, because it makes me feel like I’m not producing enough original content for you all, but Mr. Hemmings here has finally managed to blackmail me, and here we are. So um, blame him, if you like.”

 “So basically,” said Luke (they had made collab videos in the past, so you recognized him), “We’ve got a bunch of quick-fire YouTuber questions, and you have to answer them all honestly. I’m gonna pull some out of a hat and ask Ashton here, and we’ll do the other half where he asks me questions on my channel.”

“Okay,” Ashton rubbed his hands together. “I’m ready. Hit me.”

“Alright.” Luke made a big show of drawing a handful of slips of paper out of the hat and unfolding one. “YouTuber whose fandom you wish you had.”

“My own!” Ashton exclaimed immediately. “Are you kidding? They’re like the sweetest people on the planet!”

Luke rolled his eyes. The video continued in the same vain for a while, with Ashton cracking a joke every now and then to the delight of Luke. They were delightfully and adorably distractable, something you had noticed in the past, but it seemed more pronounced today for some reason. Whatever. It was cute, so it didn’t bother you, or anything.

Eventually, after several bouts of giggling on Ashton’s part and a hell of a lot of lip ring fidgeting from Luke (he did that a lot), they got to the question your fans were probably talking about.

“YouTuber you would date if you could,” Luke read off the paper. You watched as Ashton began to flush, looking away from the camera and mumbling to himself. “We can’t hear you,” Luke said teasingly.

Ashton glared at him.

“You already know,” he mumbled again, though slightly louder this time.

“Yes, that is true, Mr. Irwin, however, our lovely viewers do not know. So please. Enlighten us, if you would.”

“You’re a bastard, you know that?” Ashton muttered before clearing his throat. “Right. Um. So I would probably date Y/F/N Y/L/N.”

Your stomach dropped as you paused the video. Holy shit. Holy motherflipping shit.

Luke clapped dramatically.

“Excellent!” He cried. “And would you deign to give our viewers a reason for your affections?”

Ashton was blushing so hard that almost the entirety of his face and neck were a brilliant red. He kept running his hands over his face and through his hair and looking really, really nervous. It was adorable.

“I dunno!” he said. “’Cause she’s hot, I guess? And she seems like a nice person, and she’s funny and stuff? I guess?”

“And there you have it,” Luke said, beaming. “Awww, look, he’s blushing,” he added, noticing Ashton’s state of extreme discomfort with more joy than necessary. “Is someone in loooooooove?”

“Okay,” Ashton said to the camera, ignoring Luke pointedly. “I think that’s the end of the video. Love you guys lots, and thanks for watching!” He made a little handgun at the camera and there was a bang sound effect as the screen went black.

You could feel yourself smiling, cheeks heating a little, even after the video was over. So what? You had every right. You had had a crush on an attractive, hilarious, gorgeous, cuddly Australian for roughly a year and a half, and it turned out and he was crushing on you, too. You had every right to be a bit pleased.

You weren’t following him on twitter, because you didn’t exactly want all of your fans to know you were a stupid boy-obsessed crush-ridden teenage girl like all the rest, but you thought maybe now was the time to change that. Maybe.

It was probably a bad idea to follow him now, right? Yeah.

“It’s a bad idea to follow him on twitter, right?” you asked your friend over the phone less than ten minutes later. You just wanted to make sure, okay?

“It is definitely a bad idea, Y/N,” she replied. “The fans will go crazy, they eat that stuff up.”

You sighed.

“But…” you whined.

“Whatever, Y/N, we both know you’re going to cave and do it eventually, regardless of all the reasons you shouldn’t. So um. This isn’t like a blessing or anything, but you should get on with it.”

You rolled your eyes.

“Always lovely to know you think I make self destructive choices, Karen,” you told her.

“Shut up, bitch, you know I support you in everything you do,” she retorted.

“Yeah, yeah, whatever. Well, listen, I’m gonna go have dinner, but call me if you see anything scandalous happening on the interwebs.”

Her only response was: “Why am I friends with someone who uses the word ‘interwebs’ unironically? I need to sort my shit out.” She hung up.

When you returned to twitter, you were surprised to see that some kind of Q&A seemed to happening on Ashton’s page – probably for a new video. This wasn’t actually the surprising part; the surprising part was that you were tagged in a lot of the questions posed by the subscribers. Why, you had no idea, but you were going to find out.

So, taking a deep breath in preparation for all the shit that was undoubtedly about to go down, you followed Ashton’s twitter, scrolling through and liking and retweeting some of his funnier or more heartfelt posts.

By the time you got back from making dinner, #Y/NTwitterStalkingParty, #wesawthatY/N, and #Y/NandAshtonareinlove were all trending worldwide.

Your DM was also clogged with messages, which you would have ignored except for the fact that there were two from the illustrious Mr. Irwin himself. 

Fuck.                                                                                                                                      

Finally I am getting around to doing my first follow forever (I’ve been paranoid about forgetting people so I’ve been holding it off, oops).

No More Hiding

A/N yay a prompt that isn’t smut or sad, thanx anon

Y/N P.O.V.

 

“Y/n!” I hear my amazing boyfriend call from his bedroom. Dan and I have been dating for the past two years. Only our family and our closest friends know. You know why? Dan is a YouTube star with millions of fan girls. The thought of a public relationship scares him. He is scared I will receive hate and isn’t’ sure we are going to last. A break up in the public eye is the worst possible scenario for us, it scares him.

I open the door to his room and he is setting up the camera. “you need help filming?” I ask. “Yes.” He says shyly. “I want you to be in the video with me.” My eyes widen in shock. “What did you just say?” I ask fearing my ears are deceiving me. “I want you to be in the video with me. I don’t’ want to hide you any longer.” I feel myself staring to tear up. Coming out would mean we can hold hands in public, going on dates like normal couples. “I would love that.” I say with a smile.

“What did you have in mind?” I ask. “well Y/N funny you ask.” Omg he’s such a dork, my dork. “I thought we could do the girlfriend/boyfriend tag. But with our own twist of course.” “And what is that twist you had in mind?” “well I wanted to make a competition.” What is he talking about. “A competition?” I ask. “you know three  rounds, screw the ordinary questions.” “what questions do you want to use?” I thought I could ask some of our YouTube friends to make up questions. I could send the a DM on twitter right now.” “sounds like a plan!”

 

[Four hours later]

Dan turns on the camera, my heart is beating so fucking fast right now. I could get a heart attack any moment. “Hello internet! Today I wanted to introduce you to someone very important to me.” Okay he told me to jump into view at this moment but I can’t. ”Y/N come on you had to jump into view.” See I remembered but my body doesn’t move. I shyly shake my head, embarrassed about my behavior. “Babe, what’s wrong.” “I can’t do this.” He looks at me worried. “If you don’t want to I’m not going to force you.” But I want to please understand. ”I want to it’s just…” “Take your time to explain.” “It’s just, I can’t talk to a camera, I can’t talk to people. Because that is what your camera is isn’t it. You camera are millions of people.” I turn bright red.

“I can edit all of that out, jump into view when you are ready.” I nod and jump into screen. “It’s me!” I jell. “And you have no idea who I am.” I mumble hiding my face in Dan’s jumper. “Aww look at you all confident before turning all cute and shy. They are going to know who you are around now.” He says before continuing “This is Y/N my girlfriend.” I bury my face even further in his chest. “Don’t send her hate. Well who could send hate to this cutie.” I move my head completely hiding behind Dan at this point. Why am I so shy, why can’t I be normal. He love teasing me with this and he’s not going to stop.

As expected he keeps teasing me throughout the whole video. But as the video continuous I get more talkative. Still turning a lovely shade of dark red every now and then. By the end of the video there is nothing left of the little shy girl at the beginning.

 

[Two weeks later]

Most people support us after the video. I think it’s because most fans admire I put up with the hiding for so long. Today we finally we have our first real date. We are at this lovely restaurant down the road when two girls approach us.

3Sorry if we interrupt but can we take a picture, it’s ok if you don’t want since you are on date.” “who says I’m on a date?” Dan cheekily responds. “If we remember correctly for your last video that pretty girl is your girlfriend.” They are calling me pretty. I can feel my face heat up. “well you remember correctly.” They laugh and take pictures. “you would be good at making videos. Are you going to start making them?” The girls say to me. I don’t respond. “Babe they asked you a question.” I shake my head. Dan you know I don’t’ like talking to strangers. “I’ll think about it.” I mange too get out.” Now they are leaving.

“Dan you ass! You know I don’t like strangers!” I half yell at him. “I know, you just look so damn cute when you get all shy.” “Dan stop!” I try to hide my face behind my clutch.

“Maybe they are right, if you start making videos you maybe get over you shyness.” I like the sound of that. “I would like to try but I don’t’ know anything about cameras and editing.” “If only you had an extremely sexy boyfriend that know all that stuff.” I says. I can’t help but laugh.

 

[The next day]

I’m turning on the camera. “Hi world!”
