Fanfic (Freewood): Butter on Rye

A bit of a short one for once, just under 700 words long. Itโ€™s nice to remind myself that I can write some shorter-form stuff, too.

The best part about this fic is that it can either be read as being shippy, or just as the sort of regular banter they have in videos. The fact that theyโ€™re all comfortable enough with one another that theyโ€™re completely okay with making the sort of jokes they do about each other just makes me happy.

So, to the fic. Content warnings for sexual references, mentions of dick-sucking, etc., but no actual smut or touching (lame, I know).

Ryan let out a sound that could only be described as a growl when Gavin killed his Minecraft character for the fifth time in the past fifteen minutes of recording.

โ€œGavin, I swear to god, you keep pulling this shit, Iโ€™m gonna gouge your fucking eyes out.โ€

This earned him a few startled laughs and half-hearted reprimands for being creepy, but the rest of the Achievement Hunters were largely used to his antics by now. Gavin giggled like a three-year-old that was winning an argument with an adult by virtue of being more annoying than anything else.

I love Dongwoo to pieces and tbh I’m super happy if he /is/ dating. I mean, he’s been through a lot and, like some people have pointed out, he’s in his late 20s it’s about time. And it’s about time he’s happy.

Dongwoo is a precious ray of sunshine and deserves nothing but happiness. As much as the rumours aren’t confirmed, but even if they aren’t correct, it stands for many idols.

Just because they’re your favourite doesn’t give anyone a reason to hate on them or the person they’re with. If you truly have a special place in your heart for that person, you wish them well and you’re genuinely happy to see them happy.

So what I’m saying is I really hope no one is going to start bitching or kicking up fuss like we’ve all seem thousands of times already with other idols. It’s/their/ life, not yours. It’s /their/ relationship, not yours. It’s/their/ business, not yours. That last point has been true for /all/ aspects of an idols life and I just really hope people are going to respect that.

I don’t want to sound biased (even though he is such a sweetheart) but it’s something that’s disgusted me even when I’m not a fan of other groups who have had their private lives invaded.

Dongwoo doesn’t deserve it, idols don’t deserve, no one deserves it.

Everyone deserves their own happiness.


I’m mostly an outside observer; I’ve watched some Supergirl, but I’m not actively in the fandom. I know that, with recent episodes, many Karamel shippers are stressed and angry. I’m mostly going to post this here because, statistically, Karamel shippers are younger and aren’t as familiar with what I’ve written below. 

I understand that you feel as though you are being attacked. (Many of you are, actually, which sucks, but hey: try out that nifty blocking system Tumblr’s got!) Anyways, that does not excuse crying back to criticism/hate with, “HE’LL/THEY’LL NEVER PLEASE YOU SMH.” That is detrimental for a number of reasons:

1) You sound like a whiny baby. If a post is pulling out receipts against Karamel, fight back with your own receipts. Don’t just sit there and complain, because it makes it look like you have nothing else to say/defend yourself with. Using another fandom, let’s pretend I say Sokka isn’t a good person, using gifs of when he does something wrong.  You reply, “Wow, why are you like this?” I win the argument, because without reminding me that he saved the world/rescued the Avatar/etc., you have no facts backing you up, and look like you have no good defense against my statement (even though you do.) Please please please use your 10th grade essay skills and make an argument.

2) There is a difference between attacking a ship and attacking a person. A lot of different opinions are circling about Karamel right now. You have to remember that when someone criticizes Karamel, they are not criticizing you personally. Something about the ship doesn’t sit well with them. You yourself probably sit swimmingly with them. It’s just the same as how you don’t like other ships in Supergirl. And that’s fine. But people are not what they ship. Respect that.

3) Acknowledging the hate is giving it meaning. If you take the time to reply to something in the Karamel tag that is clearly just written by a whiny baby, you’re saying, “Hey, I think what you’re saying holds enough validity/reasoning for me to have to fight back.” Do you really want to give a random, whiny baby hater some fuel for that fire?

4) If it’s marked as “personal” or “tbd/to be deleted,” leave it alone. Personal means it’s someone’s opinion, and is meant for the sensitive contents of their blog. To be deleted means it isn’t even important enough to last on their blog for long. Reply/reblog any of these with arguments/whining, and you’re making yourself – and all Karamel shippers, by extension – seem like assholes who can’t even respect other people’s personal or private thoughts. Don’t to that to yourself or your fellow shippers.

5) Look at the tags first. This goes along with the above, but if something isn’t tagged as Karamel, don’t reply to it with “GET OUT OF OUR TAG!!!1111″ because ??? why would you set yourself up for embarrassment like this??? Remember, the tumblr tagging system doesn’t always work properly, so something that maybe was written for a different ship’s tag occasionally winds up in yours, and vice versa. Just let a user know via message or ask that something they didn’t tag as Karamel showed up in the tag so they can correct it. Honestly, it’s that simple. Don’t start drama, end it.

tldr; don’t be whiny, don’t take it personally, leave personal opinions alone, and don’t even bother acknowledging random hate.
