"where’s my christian grey????” hopefully locked up in prison
OMG NO, SERIOUSLY GUYS. THIS IS NOT COOL. I HAD ONE OF THESE THE OTHER DAY. I WAS JUST CHILLING OUTSIDE DURING THE NIGHT AND RELAXING, YOU KNOW HOW IT IS. AND I WAS ENJOYING MY BLOOD POPSICLE AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN MY FANGS HURT AND I’M BURNING, LIKE LITERALLY BURNING, AND MY SKIN START TO BLISTER AND I’M LIKE ”OH MY GOD WHAT IS THAT’ AND I SEE THE CRUCIFIX AND I’M LIKE ‘DUDE, WHAT THE HELL?!?!’ SO I DROPPED THAT AND TURNED INTO A BAT AND FLEW AWAY INTO NIGHT.
You win the Internet.
Oh yes, yes I am cackling.
having siblings is weird bc like one minute u want to strangle them with their own intestines and then later ur singing dramatic duets together
tumblr alt culture might tend towards the self-important and it’s cathartic to make fun of it every once and a while, but ultimately it’s a harmless, if not outright positive, force. it’s giving a bunch of weird teens emotional support, community, and an outlet for their weird teen bullshit at a time in their lives when they need all three
like, every so often some fool tween knee-deep in “uwu” soft-grunge shibboleth puts a trigger warning on a picture of Pikachu because it’s looking straight at the viewer. that’s patently absurd, it’s funny. but it’s an act motivated by sensitivity and an (extremely misplaced) sense of social responsibility. those are fundamentally good things. hopefully that kid is gonna grow up and use that energy in a more sensible, helpful way. this is a callous world, and we need all the empathy we can get.
from what i’ve seen, the cultures that harp on this sort of behavior or treat it like a genuine threat (read: 4chan) follow up with a contempt for women/minorities that they don’t even bother trying to hide any more. if you think a bunch of excitable kids drawing POC Original Characters with undercuts and heterochromia for comics they’re never going to make are a negative presence in this world (or even in your life), you’ve really got to reevaluate your priorities
so godspeed you little weirdos (former little weirdo, now large weirdo, speaking). i hope you have fulfilling lives and never stop looking out for your fellow human being, even if i never want to see another post about Sailor Moon again
god bless the tumblr teens, honestly and truly
STEVE ROGERS IS IN SLYTHERIN OKAY. I DON’T CARE HOW NICE OR GOOD HE IS, THAT MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.
YES HE’S BRAVE, BUT DID YOU NOT WATCH THE FIRST HALF HOUR OF THE FIRST AVENGER? DID YOU NOT WATCH ANY OF THAT MOVIE? THAT LITTLE SHIT LIED ON FEDERAL FORMS TO GET WHAT HE WANTED. HIS AMBITION WAS TO JOIN THE ARMY AND HE DID IT BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY. HE WAS RUTHLESSLY EFFECTIVE. HE WAS UMAPOLOGETICALLY BADASS. HE’S CLEVER AND DETERMINED AND RESOURCEFUL AND A LEADER, ALL SLYTHERIN QUALITIES.
AND IF YOU THINK THAT HE HAD A HOUSE PREFERENCE BC “”“NICENESS”“”” LEMME TELL YOU THAT IF THAT BOY KNEW THAT SLYTHERIN COULD HELP HIM GET WHERE HE WANTED TO GO IN LIFE, HE WOULD NOT THINK TWICE. HE WOULD NOT LISTEN TO STEREOTYPES ABOUT THAT HOUSE, NOR WOULD HE LOOK DOWN OF KIDS FROM OTHER HOUSES, ESPECIALLY CUZ THAT SOFT HEARTED HEROIC NERD OF A BEST FRIEND HE HAS DEFINITELY ENDED UP IN HUFFLEPUFF.
FIFTY SHADES OF GREY || OFFICIAL TRAILER
You’re fucking joking
Look how they tried to make this abusive piece of shit sexy.
After this shit is released, expect a flood of expecting subs who don’t know that it’s abuse and more fake Doms preying on them.
Yep. A flood of defensive posts, a flood of drama, a flood of exuberant basement dwelling shitdicks given new fuel in their predation. A flood of fucked up shit all around, a flood of teenaged girls who will grow up romanticizing this sort of thing.
Fuck. Like I know the book is trash. I know the former beta, back when it was just online fanfic who hates it with all her heart because the author refused to listen to her speak about BDSM. I’ve attempted the read the horseshit and failed before the third sentence.
I think listener-blue and I should see this trainwreck.
Bdsm community, you’ve got a big storm coming.
I just hope audiences will stop to listen to people who are actually a part of the BDSM community when we say, “THIS IS NOT HOW IT WORKS.”
As a sub, I am very protective of other subs, and I don’t want any of them to think that this kind of relationship is healthy. BDSM is safe, sane, and consensual: always. If it isn’t, it’s abuse. Fifty Shades is about abuse, plain and simple. I don’t care what the author calls it; it—is—abuse.
Please, please, please, if you are thinking of joining the BDSM community, do not use Fifty Shades as a tutorial or a guide. Talk to people in the community. Don’t let yourself be beguiled and bamboozled by abusive people masquerading as doms. Don’t let anyone tell you that Fifty Shades is an accurate representation of BDSM. Don’t let anyone tell you that BDSM is abuse.
Talk to us. Come to us. Let us help you.

Like. Ugh. I just hate the framing that fanfic is something that they should be humiliated about to begin with? Because it is so not; it is a valid creative pursuit, full of just as original and innovative (sometimes even moreso) ideas and writing and creations in comparison to the “source” material - and I will beat down on anyway who would like to discuss fan fiction being lesser or derivative in comparison to “original” works because all “original” works are fanfiction in some aspects.
So, anyway, rant aside, next time this happens, my ideal response? EMBRACE THE FANFICTION READING (and get the author’s permission, jesus, don’t just lift stuff from the internet without asking). Embrace how awesome the creativity is, praise it, and don’t be embarrassed. Because creator/actor embarrassment? is only going to make it seem even more like fans are people who should stay hidden, out of the way, not in the spotlight, and certainly not worthy of legitimate public attention for their creative pursuits.
(Caveat: yes, of course, get permission from the authors in question/don’t pick fanfiction at random; not what I’m discussing here)
what makes this all extra superduper ironic is that teen wolf is a transformative work itself, being an adaptation of a beloved cult movie
which was a comedy, by the way. jeff davis is literally writing a 4 season long horror AU of a michael j. fox movie from the 80s but he’s got the audacity to make fun of us for fanfiction??? ok. i mean i’ll tell you one thing, i’m sure that gymnastics!au had a logical plot, at least, like yo jeff davis are you sure you have room to talk shit? are you sure??????
A Harry Potter AU where everything’s exactly the same, except the house elves look like Lord of the Rings elves and Dobby’s, like, played by Orlando Bloom. But they’re still not allowed to have clothes
orlando bloom hitting himself in the face with a lamp
twelve year old Daniel Radcliff shoving a nearly-naked Orlando Bloom into his closet
consent is a hell of a thing aint it
some muggleborn like “i want to be an astronaut when i grow up!”
wizard kids like “wtf is an astronaut”
"oh you know…the people who go to the moon"
implying that magical children would know literally nothing outside of the wizarding world
