I’m not gonna talk about what sparked this rant. It doesn’t matter. What does matter is what I’m about to say.
I’m freaking done with the hate.
This SPN Family is supposed to be encouraging, accepting, we’re supposed to at least try to get along. Apparently that’s too hard. Now I could rant for hours about how some people in the SPN Family are treating eachother, but that’s for another time. This rant is going to be about one thing, the hate that the wives of the two leaders of this SPN Family receive. For this post I’m going to focus on one of the wives in particular…Danneel Ackles.
Once again as the Ackles family was nice enough to share parts of their life with us, people decide to be douchebags. This time Jensen isn’t happy with his life because he isn’t smiling in the photo of him & JJ. Also apparently comparing his kids to the comedy & tragedy is just a terrible thing to do. Oh, did you also hear that the twins might not be his because he said “my” twins instead of “our” twins. This is all Danneel’s fault too because she makes Jensen hate his life.
She can’t do anything right in the eyes of some people and it’s pissing me off. What did she do to cause so much hate? Now is the part when I ramble on about all she’s done…
She told her husband to go to a convention for the fans a few days after giving birth to twins.
Jensen told the story about finding out about the twins…JJ gave him a letter about it when he arrived at the airport…meaning he couldn’t be at the doctor appoint. How many doctor appointments do you think he had to miss because of filming?
She uses her “celebrity” to bring awareness to different events and situations going on in the world. I didn’t know about the Yulin dog festival until she talked about it. She does different work for a variety of charities, freaking google it if you don’t believe it.
Her husband is in a different country for the majority of the year while she stays back home in Austin. Have you ever had your husband away for a long period of time? Cause I have. It sucks. I complained about it on social media ALL THE TIME, but she never does.
She was a working woman in Hollywood. IMDb that shit. She was a steady worker in Hollywood however she slowed down/stopped when they had JJ.
Think of all the times she’s been out with her husband, cause that’s what Jensen is, he’s not “omg Jensen Ackles TV star”, he’s Jensen, the pain in the butt who forgot to take out the trash or forgot to grab the milk when he ran to the stores. Think about how many times she’s probably been out with him & had to deal with people coming up to talk to him. Now think about how many times this has happened & people have ignored her existence or used her as nothing more then a photo taker. Fans don’t mean too, but that shit probably happens more often then you think. I would get so sick of that.
Did I forget to mention how Jensen freaking lights up whenever someone brings up Danneel? CAUSE I WITNESSED IT IN PERSON A FEW WEEKS AGO & HE LEGIT LOOKS LIKE A TEENAGER IN LOVE WHEN SOMEONE TALKS ABOUT HER!
Apparently we’re supposed to hate her just cause.
Now is when the “haters” start to go, “you just like her because of who she’s married to.”
I knew about Danneel before I knew about Jensen. I know Danneel from One Tree Hill but I started to admire her when she hosted Maxim’s Hot 100 in 2009. She was the really pretty model/actress that I looked up to because she was funny & pretty. It wasn’t until I started watching Supernatural in 2015 that I had the “holy cow they’re married to each other” moment.
To sum up this rant; you don’t have to like Danneel, just don’t be a dick. If you admire Jensen as a human, don’t disrespect his wife or his family.
Basically if you wouldn’t go up to a person & say it to their face, don’t say it. Plus why bother wasting your time hating something when you could spend your time on something you love?
I just want to say that we almost saw Uma get abused. Ursula forreal swung at her daughter with the intention of hurting her. I do not give one ounce of a damn how bad I’m supposed to feel about Mal and her adjustment problems. Yall really gone sit here and try to make Uma the villian when sis almost got hit for being happy?
I’ll say it again because this got me all the way fucked up. URSULA SWUNG AT UMA. UMA DODGED AN ATTACK FROM HER MOTHER LIKE SHE’S HAD TO DO IT BEFORE. AND THEN SHE REASSURED HER PEOPLE THAT IT WAS FINE???!!
Okay I had this theory: what if Zen, in fact, DO know about the reset by Day 11? Think about it, it’s always recommended to complete his or Yoosung’s route first before going for anyone else. What would Zen feel, knowing that he is never the final choice?
((I just really love this man okay don’t mind me))
Ayyy some more headcanons but this time with a character.
~One of the heights I like for him is about 5′10, so he’s very lanky
~The amount this boy loves his family is w o a h. Sometimes it doesn’t come across that way with how awkward or detached(since he lives so far away from the others) he can be
~Okay so names. One of my favourite for him is Erikur [this isn’t spelt the correct way but whenever I try to copy-paste the correct one it lags my computer so I apologize]. I also love the name Ari for him
~Elves man. If you’ve ever looked into Icelandic mythology elves are very prevalent. Like woah. This boy may pretend he can’t see Norway’s magical creatures but he never jokes around with elves
~Now, I love platonic SuIce. They’re a huge brotp for me. I see Sweden as that older brother to Iceland who’s very chill and is the best person to gossip, talk shit with, or just have meaningless conversations with
~This boy is very sensitive to the sun. He’s so pale that if he can get an awful sunburn from standing out in the sun with no protection for an hour, at least
~Outside of the Nordics I imagine him having a brother-brother kind of relationship with Canada. Canada has the largest ethnic Icelandic population outside of Iceland. Icelandic vikings were also the first Europeans to be in North America. In general, Canada and Iceland have pretty good foreign relations.
~His h a i r though. It’s so thin but also really soft. Mr Puffin also sometimes likes to make a nest in his hair which tangles it so much but he doesn’t really care. It annoys the other Nordics to no end
~He’s slightly embarrassed about his accent and how difficult his language is but in a way it also makes him feel special. And whenever he goes to North America I can just imagine people fawning over how he can roll his Rs
~He can be very salty. Do not cross him if you don’t want shade thrown at you
~He detests pineapple on pizza. Him and Canada have gotten into debates over whether pineapple belongs on pizza or not
~He has worn contacts before so that he doesn’t attract attention to his eye colour
~He looks up to Denmark and Norway so much but he’ll never tell them that ever
~His sleeping schedule is so horrible, he stays up until 2 in the morning on a good night and wakes up at 7am so he always is tired
~He always offers that rotten shark dish to people who have never tried it before, sometimes as a joke, other times not (okay so this is purely based on something I saw where it said that Icelanders will offer it to tourists as a joke, that is the only reason I thought of it)
~I don’t really have many romantic ships for him since I’m in a platonic phase with the characters but I love AmeIce as a romantic ship for him
~Memes are a big thing with him. He especially loves the really old, outdated ones for some reason
~He loves birds, he could go on about them for hours
~He’s very smug about the facts that he used lava to help grow bananas, he always brings it up at Arctic Council meetings
~I headcanon him to be 17 so he’s on the brink of “I’m an adult so let me do adult things” and “I’m still a teenager so I don’t need to take on so many responsibilities at once
Okay so this isn’t all I have but it’s a lot. Please take note that some of these are because of historical things but other are purely things I thought of. Some only apply because he’s a teenager and we sometimes have awful sleeping schedules. This is only my headcanons, you don’t have to agree with them. Thank you for reading them!
I feel like you’re asking two separate questions - how do I handle the general Tony hate and how do I handle the Tony hate directed at me personally. Since I’m not sure which one you’re aiming for, I’ll answer both.
For general, I typically like to pick avoidance as well. I try to be very careful about who I follow on tumblr. I follow mostly Tony positive blogs - with the caveat that I don’t follow a lot of blogs that reblog hate posts, even if they’re posting well written defences. Hate posts make me angry and that’s not really what I’m here on tumblr for. I also don’t follow positive Wanda blogs (though I have followed a couple of anti Wanda blogs because I’m a weak, bitter person). I have a tooooooooon of words blacklisted on tumblr which also helps.
I do get my fair share of anons on tumblr and (stupid) comments on AO3. I have deleted a lot of the anons - though every once in a while, I get one that’s too awful not to publicly shame - and deleted a lot of AO3 comments. I will sometimes respond to AO3 comments, but honestly?? Everyone reading this should I know that I think you are the world’s dumbest person if you read a fic that is clearly labeled “not steve friendly” and “team iron man” and post a comment just to say that you think Steve was right and that Tony was in the wrong during civil war.
Seeing the hate can be exhausting (and enraging) so there are times when I just have to back off for a week or so until I feel ready to plunge back in. In some ways, I admire people who can constantly have the same fight over and over again… but I have been the person in fandom who banded together to fight! the good fight!!! because the other side was WRONG!!!!!!!!! and all it did was hurt a lot of feelings and make a lot of people really unhappy. I don’t have that in me anymore.
Just a friendly reminder that you’re allowed to be against both fascism and communism at the same time. I see so many people calling anti-communists “fascists” or anti-fascists “communists” but in reality you’re allowed to say both are harmful. Mao, Stalin, and Hitler all committed genocide and they were all terrible people; two of them were “communists”, one was a fascist. Genocide is just bad in general. End of story.
Also I’m not talking about the theoretical idea of communism, I’m talking about the “communism” that has existed in history - which doesn’t even follow true communist principles.
i don’t know
(that light lingering inbetween—
that painfully uncertain hope)
maybe is everything
maybe is everything
(it’s a small sweet optimism—
a wish spoken into existence)
give me maybe
over yes or no;
give me what we could be
instead of what we are.
(better something to strive towards.
better somewhere to reach for.)
(brave and broken and beautiful
despite our maybe nots.)
(the beginning of something good.
the continuation of something better.)
we may be
every triumph yet to come;
we may be
every darkness left undone;
we may be
regardless of ourselves;
we may be.
“It’s the human potential for change,” they explain. “It’s everything our futures could hold, whatever we can fill it with. It’s the promise of possibility, a reminder that the present is not a prison and every difference in our existence starts here: you and a million maybes.”
