*writing* Oh wow, they are going to love this. This is by far my best work!
*witty lines* *perfect love making* *fluffy enough to kill us all* *a dash of angst, a smidgen of hurt/comfort*
Oh man. This is it. This will be my legacy! *sweats into fic* *bleeds into fic* *cries into fic* *spends days perfecting the grammar and verbage and sex scenes* *has 15 betas look over it*
Okay. It is finally time to release my baby on the world. Here you go fandom. You're welcome.
Ha, cute. *like* *kudos*

same fanfic writer:
*writing* Whatever. This is shit, I don't even care right now. A singing squirrel? Sure, let's do it. Haha, cheesy lines that make no sense, sure. Grammatical errors out the wazoo? Why not. No one's going to read this piece of crap anyway, I literally wrote it on a scrap of 1 ply toilet paper with a broken yellow crayon.
OMG THIS IS THE BEST THING YOU HAVE EVER GRANTED US WITH, WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE, OMG, I NEED A SEQUEL IMMEDIATELY, PLEASE. WHAT THE. I'M NOT EVEN WORTHY. *kudosrebloglikereccomment*
sana bakkoush was my first favourite character on the show, as it was the iconic first bus meeting in ep3 of s1 that really sold me on this show! this post is really just all my positive thoughts and feels about my girl sana possibly getting a season and it is waaay too long, but it turns out i love sana a lot ok?? ok:
probably most important: a muslim hijabi girl as a main character.
amazing representation that young hijabi girls deserve.
also in the current political climate in europe and the us, this is so important
the show is and should be targeted at norwegian teens, and muslim girls are a group of norwegian teens that are rarely represented in our media
i want to know more about sanas relationship with islam, what does it mean to her? we know a bit and i would love to know more
also related to that, how does islam fit into norwegian cultures and traditions and how sana interacts with that?
im a culture nerd, literally that is what i study atm, so: culture in our global multicultural society is ever-changing and closely related to our identities and how chose to take part in different communities. sana is a perfect character to explore this:
obviously, she choses to wear the hijab which right away signals to others her faith
she doesnt want to drink or hook up, her faith is more important
but she actively wants to take part in a russebuss, a tradition very closely related to some of those things she isnt interested in
she also wears the traditional costume of norway, either bunad or festdrakt
basically, sana is representative of so many people in our society today, who challenge the outdated way many people think about culture as something static and clearly defined (looking directly at some right wing politicians in norway, who talk like they only know the 1960s definitions of culture)
the show smacking down on islamophobia - i am READY to see that on my screen and on the most popular show in norway atm
hey quick question: why the heck are so many people complaining about bands changing their music style & sound? i mean, if their sound changes but your music taste stays the same, it’s you who needs to move on, the band doesn’t need to keep making music they themselves don’t like just to fit y'all’s tastes.
your hogwarts house is more important than your name
so vast?? so old??? scary, kind of.
really old classic fics
used to have ship wars like all hell, and kind of still does??? but not really??? it’s better now
every other fandom has a harry potter au.
split into different sects that are practically whole different fandoms. there’s the marauders fandom, the golden trio/canon era fandom, the fantastic beasts fandom, the next gen fandom – they’re all like little umbrella fandoms under one great big potter net.
no one’s favorite character is harry potter.
they don’t talk about the cursed child.
will never die.
holy shIT this fandom is a minefield
a lot of teenagers??? like??? a lot???
an alarming amount of smut fic
i dont know a lot of this fandom is really immature and there are so many ship wars?? like???
ignoring actual historical material in favor of coddling your favorite character
the dub is one of the most quotable things i’ve ever seen
hetalia is very much a starter anime. a lot of people get into this anime as like a gateway drug and grow out of the fandom later on.
lots of bad fic, with rare absolute GEMS thrown in.
some fics are beautifully researched, intricate, historically accurate, and amazing. so much potential for fic in this fandom.
the main character is jean valjean
much of the fandom does not realize this.
les amis are love, les amis are life. jean valjean?? who??? javert??? who’s that?? fantine????? WHO THE FC U K
emerges from the deep once every few years when a movie or something else comes out.
The Movie Musical shot the fandom to new heights and launched a new era, but now has mostly calmed down???
also will never die. been around since 1862 and still going strong.
used to be eponine stans (eppyboppers) who hated cosette??? and usually shipped eponine with marius or enjolras. thank god that’s over.
literally everyone ships E/R.
even the actors ship E/R.
sO MUCH GREAT FIC
oikawa tooru is universally adored
pretty much everyone ships the same things?? like obviously not, and there are so many great character dynamics and rarepairs, but ships like bokuaka, iwaoi, kagehina, etc. are so ingrained in the actual canon that everyone ships them a LITTLE bit, even if you ship the character different ways too.
you can ship anyone with anyone. literally. go fuckin wild.
everyone has normal hair except for the one owl guy.
YOU SHOULD HAVE COME TO SHIRATORIZAWA
Yuri!! on Ice
EVERYONE SHIPS VICTUURI. IT IS AN ACTUAL CANON GAY SHIP AND IT IS GOLDEN.
at this point 90% of the fandom is just screaming over any new content they get b/c it’s all so great.
everyone under 20 gets shipped with yurio, and every one of these ships is somehow controversial.
fandom swings back and forth between wanting JJ to die in a fire or being ready to protect him to the ends of the earth.
sala or sara??? nobody can decide??? (spoiler alert: it’s sara, that’s a real italian name, sala is the word for living room.)
even the people who despise the dub can’t hate it THAT much
at one point the fandom hated chris, but now he’s just kind of the weird overly sexual uncle at the family barbecue
So I’m seeing people in the yoi tag bashing yoi for having Yuri do such a “sexualized” skate when really it’s not that sexualized. There’s one part that could be considered flirty with his jacket slipping off his shoulder and another where his shirt rides up in a slide across the ice. He’s sixteen, he’s a teenager who trains in ballet which can have very similar bends in the body and is at that age where he’s exploring his sexuality and doing what he wants with it. He’s not a child and unless they take his pants off I don’t think the yoi team are a bunch of pedophiles (also they’re from Japan which has completely different views about age of consent then we do anyway). I just hate how there are people out there who feel the need to bring down everyone else around them just for being excited for something they really love.
That animation was BEAUTIFUL and looks like a lot of love and effort was put into it. Let the fans enjoy one of their favorite character have an exhibition skate and calm down.
I’m only going to make one post about this. Nobody confirmed Ed is going to bang Barbara. Not all female/male mashups are required to end in romance. People should be happy Cory is getting to work with another actor this season rather than just be stuck in the same sort of plot/dynamic. Ed and Babs team up is going to be wonderful, and very fun to watch. Erin and Cory already have a really great dynamic, please if you are, don’t bitch to the writers, producers, or actors for something that has not even been stated. Plus, how good of a romantic wingman could Babs be, if for some reason she ends up wanting to help mend Ed and Oswald’s partnership.
I like the work, but Jefferson and Alexander? Bad choice. Why not do a jokey kind of one and do Lauren and Alexander? Everyone really likes them. Or do just normally, Alexander and Eliza! Just why not Jefferson and Madison everyone likes them together. Sorry, but you made the wrong choice in my eyes. Idk my opinion
You’re right!!! I’m deleting all the Jamilton stuff on this blog and only drawing Lams Hamliza and Jeffmads now guys if anyone request Jamilton in the future I’ll block them !!!1!
was the weight joke bad? yeah. especially since we all know that it’s one of jimin’s biggest insecurities. but at the same time….i don’t know if you western fans know this but weight/appearance jokes are something that is deeply embedded/considered the standard in east asian humor so i feel like it’s kind of…unfair to be so mad at jin for it on jimin’s behalf. since it’s a problem with the culture. jimin was laughing, and i’m sure they know each other’s boundaries.
however, if anyone felt personally offended/uncomfortable by what jin said, their feelings are completely valid and no one has the right to tell them otherwise.
wow I’m not sure I’ve had enough gin for this but ok:
1) Elves have super long hair, like, Luthien has enough hair to make a cloak out of it and wind it into a rope to climb down Hirilorn with? that is a lot of hair.
2) long hair is, on its own, very annoying and gets in the way a lot. so clearly Elves have something else going on that ameliorates the desire to just go for it with the scissors.
3) Elves have much more control over their bodies than humans. their command over their physical forms is at “all times greater than it has ever been among men” and “far excelled the spirits of Men in power over [their bodies]”(Of Death and the Severance of Fea and Hroa, LACE).
