you can't tell what fandoms i'm in judging from this post

So, as some of you may know I recently hit 1k followers! Which is really just amazing tbh, it’s approaching my one year anniversary of this blog and frankly when I started I never envisioned getting this many followers. I recently just finished most of my exams so I thought this would be a perfect time to hold some blog rates AND a fic giveaway at the same time to celebrate! It should be super fun :)

The Rules:

  • You must be following me (I will check)
  • (Also if you want to know which fandoms I am in there’s an extensive but not exhaustive list here, but I tend to primarily blog PJO and HP)
  • You have to reblog this post. Likes count only as bookmarks
  • To enter the blog rates, send me an ask! Tell me a fun fact, a joke, how your day went, pretty much anything! (Or you can just say you’re entering the blog rates haha)
  • If you’re entering the fic giveaway, let me know in the ask! Or if you prefer, just add a star emoji
  • If you reblogged the post to a different blog that you’re following me from/sent me an ask, please let me know in the tags!

Ways to Cheer Yourself Up (When wanting to be alone) - 50 top things to do
  • 1. Go ON Tumblr, believe it or not, we don't care where you're from, what you do, how you're being you, as long as you are being you, you're pretty much welcomed on here. That's why i love it. Unless of course you are homophobic or judgemental or ignorant - then the people will speak for themselves, we look out for each other here.
  • 2. Read Books; escapism is a wonderful thing
  • 3. Listen to music; and no - not the sad, 'ALL BY MYSELF' type music, but the kickass songs like 'I will Survive' or 'Loser Like Me' just celebrate yourself for being awesome, because we know you are; even if others don't; especially then actually.
  • 4. Become your own superhero. Every single one of you have a talent or a dream. Follow up on that talent/dream. YOU ARE WORTH IT, and you can be whoever you want to be.
  • 5. DISNEY MOVIES. Unless you absolutely hate bursting out into song - better cut of highschool musical and glee while were at this, then Disney is the best pick me up ever.
  • 6. Watch your favourite TV shows. Remind yourself why life can be awesome. Watching your fav characters usually means you can relate to them.
  • 7. Go on walks - it's very pretty outside, and sometimes our heads can be overloaded with information or stress, I advise calming music and a nice walk outside in comfortable clothes.
  • 8. Have a diary. A friend of mine recently bought me one, and it's a godsend because all the anger, or emotions I feel, I try to put in the diary rather than putting it out on others. It also calms you down. I feel better when I write.
  • 9. Speaking of writing...if you enjoy it- WRITE. Writing is a wonderful way to escape. You can put all your emotions into your characters and they just come to life. I tend to do that when I'm stressed.
  • 10. If writing is not your thing then bake. I've actually ironically read in a fan fiction where a character would bake when stressed and try out new recipes, this character tried making butterbeer; maybe be adventurous; have a food blog or something to keep you occupied.
  • 11. Be With Your Pets - Pets are loyal creatures, and they love you, even when you're being a pain in the ass, and I hear they're very good listeners.
  • 12. Now I don't know about you, but I LOVE Musicals. If you are a musical fanatic like me and you're feeling a little down, my dears; listen to those awesome voices, because sometimes we just - need - a break (Also, if you haven't watched RENT, watch it - NODAYBUT TODAY...or Starkid...Starkid make the most funniest musical parodies, even if you don't like musicals I suggest it, and if you're not enjoying their YouTube Channel, then I'll eat my own hat).
  • 13. ASK ME ANYTHING. If you really want to talk to somebody but you don't want to talk to people you know and you just want to get things out, my ASK box is always open.
  • 14. Find a hobby. If you don't really want to talk to anybody, that's okay, sometimes we need to just have some 'me time'. In my me times, I usually deactivate from Facebook, and just focus on things that make me happy. Like; Puzzles, Sudoku, Games, writing, cooking, singing, whatever it is...travelling even. Enjoy yourself.
  • 15. Travel. Maybe being stuck in the same place is the problem, maybe you're head wants to be in a place where it can ACTUALLY THINK.
  • 16. Go Hiking. I suppose Hiking is similar to walking but if you're an outdoor person, this is a great way to clear your head and to feel fresh.
  • 17. Hit The Gym. Or even do your own exercises. I like to walk - do crunches, and I love Zumba. I love dancing. If you love being active, this is also another way to clear your mind from negative things.
  • 18. GO SEE A MOVIE!!! When was the last time you had fun? Even if it's just by yourself. You're allowed to treat yourself. Go, enjoy, be surrounded by people, even if they're strangers.
  • 19. If you like coffee, treat yourself for one at a local cafe. Who knows, you might meet your coffee soulmate in a cafe one day.
  • 20. STOP thinking Negative. Have a Pros/Cons List. Try not to outweight the Pros list with the Cons. Please?
  • You are good enough.
  • 21. Write down a bucket List, and start ticking them off. Having goals and dreams is healthy. If you have dreams, then you have a direction of where you're going.
  • 22. Get help. It's okay, if you're head is in a really bad place to reach out to people. It really is okay.
  • 23. Help others. If you're not sure what to do with yourself at all, be useful to other people less fortunate than you. Volunteer! Work with Charity, Feed the homeless, help the guide dogs association.
  • 24. Smile more. It looks good on you, believe me. Spend time with your guilty pleasures, my guilty pleasure is binge watching glee
  • 25. Please DO NOT go to a pub to drink to ease your mind, if you are going to do that, do it with a friend, or somebody close.
  • 26. Eat Chocolate. Okay yes while society says NO DON'T EAT THE FATTY FOOD. Hey; screw them. If you feel better eating a bit of junk go for it. There's nothing wrong with eating a whole pizza or tub of ben and jerry ice cream when feeling upset - just try not to make TOO much of a habit : p
  • 27. REBLOG YOUR FOLLOWERS POSTS, you might be surprised that you aren't the only one feeling the way you're feeling, you might be surprised by how much you're forgetting that hey - it's gonna be alright.
  • 28. Do something nice for your neighbour. Ah who knows, have you ever actually talked to them? Maybe they might be lonely too.
  • 29. Have a GAMES Night. A very good friend of mine loves Games. If You LOVE Games, then hell have a marathon of them. Play the sims, be in control.
  • 30. Speaking of marathons...dun dun dun - MOVIE MARATHON, I Don't Know About You Guys, But Having A Harry Potter Movie Marathon always cheers me Up. WITH FOOD Of course, and good company, but this is about cheering yourself up, so if you don't want company, that's okay.
  • 31. Draw. I love drawing too. I suppose I'm more of the creative person. There are a lot of different types of people out there, maybe you like solving things - do those fancy cube things Idk what they're called. If you are like my brother and you love Maths, then maybe you can tutor someone. On one hand you're helping someone, and doing something you like doing, just like I'm drawing because I like drawing.
  • 32.Be with kids. believe it or not, kids are the most innocent little munchkins, and they honestly don't care what you look like, if you play hide and seek with them they'll be thrilled, so long as you're nice to them, they're generally nice to you... but be warned, they tell it how it is too. I talk a bit different. The most popular thing they've said to me was "Is that why you talk funny, because of the things in your teeth?" (They've also never really seen braces before) I even had one kid determined to get me to sing 'Everything is awesome' I'll never forget that because this kid clearly didn't care how I sounded, and just wanted me to sing with her. I felt great.
  • 33. If you're into Fairy Tales, Please Please Read Chris Colfer's The Land Of Stories series 1-4. It's an amazing series, and you almost forget what world you're in once you start reading. Plus, there's more coming (I'm a little excited)
  • 34. Watch Pixar Movies. You can't go wrong.
  • 35. GO TO HOGWARTS. Harry Potter Fan? Visit - Platform 9 3/4s in London, or go to the Harry Potter World, or if you can't actually visit these sites, go on Pottermore.
  • 36. Read Fan Fiction, you might not be a harry potter fan, but whatever fandom you are in, believe me sometimes Fan Fictfion Cheer me up. I adore Glee *Don't Judge Me* and Dalton is the best thing ever. Or Little Numbers...or Both. They cheer me up big time.
  • 37. Role play. If you like superheroes or characters, go be with the crowd. I believe they have events like Comic Con, and on Facebook they even have Events for such things, go be with strangers! So long as it's safe of course.
  • 38. Write a letter to the person who inspires you most and send it. You might be surprised by an answer.
  • 39. Pick up your instrument. Don't ignore your musical talent if you do have a musical talent. Remember, you're worth it. I don't care what you've done. Pick, It Up.
  • 40. Maybe go visit your family? I know this is about 'quality me time' but if you haven't seen your family in such a long time or are at a distance. Maybe being surrounded by something familiar is what you need.
  • 41. Change Careers. If you're not enjoying what you're doing or studying, change it. I remember in highschool a teacher said you might change your job 10 - 12 times before getting it right. It'okay, you just haven't found where you're meant to be yet.
  • 42. Enter a competition - Who knows what will come from it, take risks.
  • 43. If you're a risk-taker, challenge yourself. IDK how you're going to do that, but google has some pretty good answers. Even ask your tumblr followers, they follow you for a reason after all.
  • 44. Go on a boat. Go Fishing! I don't know, it's not my thing, but if you like fishing, then hell - go out there and fish.
  • 45. Find time for yourself, are you working too much? Maybe you are working too much. You know life doesn't stop for nobody, and if you keep pushing yourself so hard, time will go so fast and you won't realise how much of that time you could have spent on your own self.
  • The world is not going to end if you treat yourself.
  • 46. You ARE Good Enough. Listen to my words. Sometimes encouragement is all we need, when people feel hopeless, or like everything's gone wrong. It's gonna be okay. I promise, just hang in there.
  • 47. Write Down Quotes that Inspire You. I have a wall of these, and of people that inspire me too, and it reminds me of the good things in life when I'm in a crappy mood.
  • 48. Find something to do. If you're not doing anything, go take up a course, research things that interest you, you might be surprised by what comes from it. Join a community that enjoys doing things you do.
  • 49. Go To The Beach - If you live in Australia like me, visiting the beach is actually really calming and me and my best friend always would go on a random drive, and drive up to a beach or a look out, and it was always calming. Enchanting too sometimes. Maybe we forget about the place we live in, and what's exciting about the place. If you're in New York, visit Broadway or The Statue Of Liberty, or if you're in London, go to the London Bridge, or the Eye, visit the Eiffel Tower if you're in Paris...just go Anywhere.
  • 50. Take a random journey. Go on a train to somewhere new, go on a road trip. You never know what's around the corner.
BSD Pairing Concerns

Ya this has been bugging me for a while

Let me get this out of the way before anything else

I DO NOT repeat DO NOT HATE ANY OF THE PAIRINGS

It’s perfectly fine by me who you ship! It’d be pretty petty of me to go around and say, ‘OMG Y U SHIP DEM?! *Insert pairing name here* IS THE WAY TO GO’. I think that’d be kind of childish. <|D Now on to the main post where I will list my reasoning’s:

1. This is a no grounded fear to be honest, and a bit idiotic, but I’m a strange girl sue me >|T I tend to see a lot of people ship Soukoku (Double Black) rather than Dazushi, which again, I have no problem with. I tend to think that both the ships of Dazai and Chuuya or Akutagawa and Atsushi are really cute, it’s just I am kind of worried that Dazushi will become a rare-ship where people don’t really talk about it and those who do get strange looks or are put down for it. So it’s not so much of how popular one of the ships are as it is of people ridiculing others for who they like to pair together. This will come back later.

Hi! I'm new to the fandom (lolz) and I'm on the fence on all sorts of things. I've seen proof masterposts for larry and ziam being real that had some super convincing points that can't be argued against, but I've also seen some for elounor (and sophiam but more so elounor) that I felt had irrefutable points too. Clearly they can't all be real and I don't know what to think. This fandom is either insanely smart and perceptive or downright delusional lol maybe i'm just scared of being wrong?

Hello!  It’s crazy to be jumping into the middle of things all at once I’m sure.  I didn’t start investigating Larry until I was a fan for 5+ months and then it took me several months to be sure about that.  I discovered Ziam a few months later, but by then I knew what I needed to be convinced.

There are a few things I always keep in mind.

1) If there were attempts made to hide interactions between 2 members, you have to wonder why.  The whole selling point of the band is their friendship, so there’s no reason to be hiding that. It’s against their business interests and given 1D’s schedule over the last 5 years, it’s clear 1DHQ’s main interest is money.

2) Trust what you see from the boys in person.  If you don’t see and hear it coming from the boys’ mouths, then there’s really no good way to know if they said it.  If I left my computer lying around logged in, anyone could use it to post on my Twitter.  The same is true for the boys’ social media except in their case, it’s deliberate social media management.  

Media articles aren’t any better and can be manipulated quite a lot.  Don’t trust the media blindly.

3) Look for consistency.  If you notice that an article says one thing and the boys act completely differently, that’s a huge warning sign.  Someone is lying to you.  For example, why have the UK press all been trying to tell us that 1D is breaking up and the boys aren’t close when the boys’ actions and words show the complete opposite?  

You have to question who has something to gain from the particular lie being told.  On the other hand, if you know the agenda of 1DHQ and something you see on social media etc. doesn’t fit it, that may be an indicator it’s really the boys doing it.

5) Keep in mind that the point of bearding and closeting is for it to look realistic.  A few smiley or intimate pictures can easily be faked.  Watch one of those romcoms where the characters pretend to be dating and see everything they do to convince people they’re dating for real.  Then remember that 1DHQ has a whole team they can dedicate to doing the same thing if that’s their goal.

Closeting is not new.  Teams lying and doing shady things is not new.

6) To add to that, I don’t like taking gifs or heart eyes pictures for proof for Elounor or Larry for instance.  There’s far too much personal interpretation of what intimacy and emotions are with that.  There’s also missing context and possible angle and distance manipulation with pictures.  I like facts and logic because they’re not as easy to skew.

7) Remember that 1DHQ are not our friends and they’re not the boys’ friends. All you have to know is that Niall was told he needed knee surgery 1.25 years and a full tour with 123 shows before he actually was given enough time off to get it.  He performed on that painful, dislocating knee for that long just for the sake of 1DHQ getting tour profits.  

They then had him show up to the Brits only 1.5 weeks after surgery and put him back on tour after a week less than the bare minimum of time he needed to recover. 1DHQ will do what they think they need to to earn their money and they don’t care about how it hurts the boys. 

If you need to know how the boys feel about 1DHQ, some of it is here.

8) Be careful of assumptions.  A lot of things used to create a false narrative are simply hints that are meant to lead you to assumptions.  For instance, if you see a photo posted, you tend to assume it’s current unless there’s some big indicator it’s not, like an old haircut.  That’s not necessarily true, though, since people can hold on to pictures and post them whenever.  

They may post a picture that’s supposed to make you think Zayn is in LA for instance, but then you find that the picture was stolen off the internet.  Break down all the assumptions being made about evidence and think about whether the assumptions are actually solid.  

9) One is an incident, two is coincidence, three is a pattern, more is ridiculous. That’s the rule in general and with 1D.  The thing is that the same specific things happen over and over and over again in the same ways.  When there are too many coincidences, it’s just not a coincidence anymore


Hopefully those things help a little bit in terms of how to judge what’s important and what’s not.  Of course it’s up to you if you agree, but those are a lot of my guiding principles.

I’m also going to say that if you haven’t read the Harry Louis Treatise or watched the ILYSM videos, they’re amazing sources for Larry and Ziam proof respectively.  If you haven’t done those yet, definitely do.

I also have tags for analysis resources, ziam resources, and larry resources on my blog.

Like I said, it took me some time to come to terms with everything, so if it takes you time, it’s not at all weird.  There’s a huge backlog of information to go through to see the patterns that emerge and the shady things that happened over 5 years.

anonymous asked:

its obvious to me that outlaw queen and captain swan are what the writers are going for. Do you honestly believe that swan queen will ever make it canon??? Don't take this message in a fuck you judgmental way. I love CS and OQ but I sometimes have a soft voice in the back of my head silently cheering on SQ so basically I just want everyone to be happy and have a lot of great sex with their lovers. But i just wanted to know if you actually think SQ would become a canon couple

I see you with your feigned interest in my interpretation and your passive-aggressive slap-down, but I’m drunk and in a good mood so I am going to ignore a few bits of your message and dive in head first.

Sterek shippers seriously make being in this fandom intolerable. Literally intolerable. They’re so quick to bash and judge every other ship. They’re so quick to write out essays. Literally, pages and pages of complete bullshit as to why any other Stiles(or Derek) related pairing is morally wrong and illogical. The fact that you’re trying to attempt to categorize Stydia and Stalia in the same realm of existence, let alone define them as the same level of insanity, baffles me. I can’t even fathom it. You’re actually saying there’s barely any character development between Stiles and Lydia? Come on, I know y’all have your heads so far up your delusions ship’s asses that you hate to admit to any potential character growth when you see it but now I’m generally concerned for your wellbeing. Stiles and Lydia have had more build, more development, more REAL progress as a unit then any damn pair in this entire show.

I just love how this person(god bless their heart) is steadily preaching on how Lydia needs to remain single, and Stiles needs to heal and “take a break from romance plots and deal with the shirt storms of a life.” Only to finish up with “how about actually giving us what the majority of us fans want aka Derek!!” Wow, okay. So, let me get this straight. When Lydia is linked to Stiles, she’s seen as a “pointless romance”, and forced but when it’s Derek, hell yeah, all board the tunnel of love! Simply because majority of you so called “fans” want it? Are you kidding. Three years of slowly molding, shaping and building a new form found friendship is considered “suddenly, out of the blue” but wanting a emotional compromised man ( who’s not shown a single trace of having any other preference besides women ) to just magically fall in love with a highschool student (who, a season earlier, couldn’t give two fucks if that man lived or died) is justifiable? Tell me how any of this makes sense!

“Let’s mash together two mentally unstable teenagers and tell us it’s romantic, because that just screams healthy.”

So you honestly, truly think, the man who watched his family die in a fire, the boy who murder his first love at the age of 15, the man who’s basically completely fucked up in the head is more mentally stable than Lydia or Malia? Really.

You seriously have the audacity to talk so boldly about an unhealthy relationship, when you’re shipping a 20+ year old man with a 17 year old boy…? Let’s just take out the huge, gag inducing age gap for a moment shall we. You’re so stuck on saying that these two characters together would be romanticizing insanity but for two and a half seasons, weren’t you shippers the ones who kept romanticizing a giant pounding the shit out of a defenseless boy? Mistaking, abuse and freight for “undying sexual chemistry.”?
And to this day. Derek still talks about Stiles likes he’s a incoherent child. Like he’s weak and useless. If anyone’s health or stability should be questioned it’s your’s.

“How about not shoving a new ship down our throats”

I’m genuinely laughing my little tushee off over this statement. Gather around y’all. This is extraordinary. What we have here is a STEREK shipper, complaining that a ship is being shoved down THEIR throats. No! I’m not lying, go look if you don’t believe me!

This is coming from the same side of the fandom that sent porn edits and fanbooks to Dylan and Tyler. This is coming from the side that calls themselves the “alphas” and “light of beacon hills.” From the side that literally over analyzes and twists every single scene or thing in to sterek. This is coming from the people that legitimately destroyed the teenwolf tag with their AUs, metas, smutt and fanfics. Because you know, having 700 tags isn’t enough, they had to take over the main tags too. This is coming from the side of the fandom who literally trolls on a innocent, fun poll, THAT DOESNT EVEN INVOLVE THEIR SHIP, and gets pleasure off of belittling and completely demolishing ships while trying to promote theirs.

Are you literally insane or are you just trying to make every other shipper detest you. I don’t know what it is. Maybe you’ve all just become so good at lying and living in your fantasy world that you’re starting to believe its really true. Maybe you actually think you’re trying to look out for Stiles. What ever it is. Whatever you’re trying to do, just step back for a moment and realize, that just because you don’t like a certain ship, doesn’t make them any more wrong or worse then your own and if you want to be completely honest, Sterek is in no way, shape or form even close to fitting any vague definition of a stable relationship, let alone a healthy one. So you can take your hypocritical nonsense and butt hurt opinions and bounce.

(P.s I didn’t like this post personally I got it off of a twitter account that thought what this shmuck was saying actually counted as relevant. Ha)

anonymous asked:

I'm so happy for zayn but I am confused him being successful how will that prove him leaving is a stunt and he will go back to 1D?

I feel like y’all think “stunt” means someone is eventually gonna jump from behind a bush and tell you you’ve been punk’d. That’s not what this is. This is a PUBLICITY STUNT with multiple objectives. One objective was to damage the 1D brand because they are leaving their team (typically referred to as 1DHQ) and taking their star power and their money making ability with them. Another objective was to launch Zayn’s solo career, because that presented another money making opportunity for 1DHQ. Yet another objective was to give Perrie/Little Mix a publicity push via the Zayn leaving narrative and to rescue them from LMHQ’s (which is also 1DHQ) incompetence and neglect. It goes on and on.   

His leaving has already been proven to be a stunt, imo. 

This was a lie:

Simon Cowell has officially wiped his hands clean of everything having to do with Zayn Malik! The X Factor judge told Yahoo Celebrity UK that his focus is purely on One Direction, and he’s not even in contact with the former 1D guy.

“I’m not in touch with Zayn. Once we’d made the decision that he was going to be on a different part of Sony, which is good for him, my responsibility was obviously the guys and their next record. But Zayn is going to be fine,“ he said.

And we know it’s a lie because:

This is just one example. Simco and/or Syco was listed on every music platform and then, oddly enough, was removed. I seriously doubt it was a clerical error. That was your smoking gun. 

There was no reason whatsoever for Simon Cowell to lie about the terms of Zayn’s record deal. This is business. Everyone would find it fairly reasonable that Simon required Zayn to fulfill his contractual obligations to Syco. In fact, one of the major things that tipped many of us off to the stunt factor was the narrative that Zayn was allowed to leave WITHOUT fulfilling his contractual obligations. That’s simply not done. That’s why contracts exist. Then 1DHQ awkwardly attempting to address that issue by claiming he paid half his net worth to get out of 9 months of work made it even more suspicious. So that narrative was quickly dropped and the business side of his leaving was basically left a mystery. Probably because by then 1D fans had verified through public records that Zayn was still a Director of 1D’s companies. So ask yourself, why the elaborate lie telling? It’s always easier to tell the truth. So why didn’t they? What was the hidden agenda? These are the questions you need to ask in order to figure it out. 

I’m not even gonna get into the coordination between Zayn’s publicity and 1D’s publicity since he left or that he continued to utilize staff and services most likely contracted through Modest post leaving or that Print!Zayn has been used to shore up 1DHQ’s anti-Larry, no homo, fandom bashing agenda. Obviously, all this should add up to something fishy for you. Has any of this been on your radar?  

None of the players are ever gonna cop to anything. So this is where your ability to reason, your common sense and a basic working knowledge of 1D’s situation kicks in. This is not Just Jared Jr. teeny-bopper bullshitting. This is about showbiz dirty dealing and bts business maneuvers. It’s another level and if you don’t bring a willingness to discern you will never figure it out.

If 1D is to return, it’s gonna be as OT5. Because I don’t think any of them are interested in building a legacy on top of the mountain of lies 1DHQ left them with. Would you? So either it’s clean slate/fresh start/damage undone or it’s nothing.
