you can never be too safe this has been a psa
Only on Tumblr can there be both the good and the bad of all fandoms. Before coming in, remember-- there are no morals on this blog. Let loose your inner creativity and strip all thought of morality. You have been warned.

Even if Billy would have wanted to be a boy it’s not like he would have had the choice anyway
Ummm, I’m sorry I just started shipping Billy and Peter because they are both too cute! I mean what if they just like went off to the playground or something to hang out after this and were talking and having fun then they just hold hands as the sun sets! So adorable!
This little story is too cute to handle
Imagine Person A of your OTP asking out Person B in a foreign language.
I don’t think I’ve ever laughed so hard in my life
I personally find it terribly amusing when I see posts like
"please treat that japanese figure skater like an actual person instead of a character from your favorite anime it’s really gross"
when they’re reblogged by people in fandoms centered around real people because essentially you’re calling others out for /dehumanizing/ a person when you as a fan have probably done the same to someone else? Maybe he’s an athlete (again, i don’t understand why because football fandoms totally do this) and that’s why it’s different, but it could literally apply to any public figure and especially where kpop idols are concerned, the entire concept of real person fanfiction and roleplay isn’t exactly respectful so I just wish people would be a little mindful of that.
It’s a really good thing that this issue is being addressed but I feel like people should also think a bit before blindly pointing fingers. It’s excellent that you understand that something is problematic but it doesn’t solve anything if you’re involved in propagating the same thing you’re trying to make others stop doing.
I really have to say this to get it off of my chest before it kills me. And I know I’m going to step on people’s toes and I really don’t care and you can curse me to high heavens about what I’m going to say because I’m not going to answer to the reblogged answers (because I don’t owe anyone a damn response) and all I want to do is get this out there for people to see.
I understand the need for figure skating fans to protect Yuzuru, Daisuke and honestly any other figure-skater who has blown up on Tumblr who is now being “fetishized.” I understand that the anime and K-POP fandoms can be rather unbearable. They are rather unbearable fandoms. A large portion of them are young teenagers.
However, I have to say that this constant criticizing of all of the new fans that stumble upon him is ridiculous. Just as much as you don’t want the new fans that have jumped on the bandwagon of loving Yuzuru to stop “fetishizing him,” I feel that there is a need for you all to stop turning off fans with the attitudes that you have.
I don’t blame you all for being protective. It’s only natural. But at the same time, some of you guys are being rather pretentious and borderline assholes. I can’t even go into some tags in regards to the figure skaters and keep a smile on due to some of you guys’ attitudes.
Newsflash: There are new fans who have jumped this bandwagon from other fandoms who truly do see these amazing figure skaters as talented beings at the sport of which they excel in.
There are plenty of anime and K-POP fans that recognize their talent. Just because we’re not able to immediately note at what specific move is what doesn’t mean that we’re not aware of how talented they are and how we want to learn as much as you guys already know. But by being assholes and saying “WTF, get the fuck out of our tag with your immature shit you stupid pricks,” you’re not helping one bit.
Just because we spazz about how adorable Yuzuru (Team Japan for that matter; Team Canada; Yulia, etc.) is doesn’t mean we don’t recognize his (their) true talent and that that’s the only thing we recognize him for. You’d be a damn liar though to say you haven’t had a moment where you just spazzed about something that made you happy. These figures skaters are no exception. They make people happy. Mr. Pooh Bear makes people happy.
I don’t mind these young fans being reprimanded because they are wrong in a lot of cases, and we understand that “being cute” isn’t the main thing that you guys want these figure skaters to be known for. But seriously stop being assholes. You’d pretty much turn fans away from Yuzuru and any other figure skater that you guys are condemning fans for due to your attitudes. And that, I am sure, is something none of the figure skaters would want in the first place.
look what I found while browsing in the library
do you know what this is?
wait a sec
do you guys understand how much published fan fic this fandom has ?
and they all spell Cas, Cass.
WAIT IT GETS BETTER
Has anyone gone through all the interviews since the start and collected everything ever said about what was going to happen on Sherlock and what was true about the characters? Because it would be a giant catalogue of approximately 87% lies. It would be interesting to have data and be able to calculate the probability of truth appearing in an interview.
If someone’s patient and committed enough to collect it all, I’m sure it would be a tremendous fandom resource.
A spreadsheet with coloured TRUE or FALSE column! And field to indicate the
liarperson who shared the information! Has this happened yet? Does anyone want to do it?
For the record, I’m glad they lie to us. I’m not trying to be critical about the practice. I dig it. I’d rather the media stop asking these people what’s going to happen in some weird attempt to ruin it for everyone, because why would any writer want you to know what’s going to happen in their story?! It’s a dumb question. They might as well lie. I’m glad they do. I’m glad their lies are so awesomely contradictory, too. There are whole worlds in their lies, whole alternate universes full of ships and near misses. I ship TPTB/lies, yes I do.
I’d just like to have something to point to when someone in fandom tells me I’m wrong to read a scene or a character a particular way because Benedict Cumberbatch said Sherlock slept with Irene, or because Steven Moffat says everyone’s going to have a cuddle party in series 4, or because Mark Gatiss said of course Moriarty is dead, he put a bullet through his face, no one can come back from that. It would be nice to have the evidence on hand, don’t you think? Data always helps.
Why yes, I am a librarian. Why are you looking at me like that?
I hate when interviewers basically ask what’s going to happen! It’d be terrible if they actually answered honestly, and I don’t know why’d they want to be spoiled anyway. If Moftisson swooped into my house and put a gun to my head and told me I must accept one spoiler of my choosing, I’d be like, “I’ll take the gun.”
