Look what I saw in the candy shop.
It’s people like you that remind me that the entire Twilight fandom won’t throw acid in your face for saying it’s just a book. Good for you. Defend what you like. Though you really shouldn’t have to.
I’m not really part of the Twilight fandom. I mean, I’ve read all the books, I’ve seen all the movies, and I’ve written fanfiction for it, but I don’t consider myself part of the fandom, because I don’t really talk to other Twilight fans. Because a large percentage of the fandom is terrifying and unstable, in my opinion. Now, to be fair, I’m terrifying and unstable too, but I don’t bash people for liking or not liking something. I will argue why I feel people should give something a fair shake, but I don’t like it when people bully people about their fandoms or their ships.
I think it goes back to when I was a teenager. When I was a teenager I was an obsessive fan of a specific band, that was considered “uncool.” (I’m still an obsessive fan, honestly, I know every single song) But I was tormented, and I’ve actually been physically assaulted for being a part of that fandom. I also liked other books and movies and TV shows that brought me a lot of flack. As a result, I am seriously opposed to people bullying other people into liking or not liking things.
Love what you love. Dislike what you dislike. Don’t push your stuff onto me and I won’t push my stuff onto you. But I’d love to sit down and share feels with you. If you love something I don’t love, you are more than welcome to tell me why you love it, and talk to me about it. I won’t shame you for your kinks, squicks, fandoms or ships. Even though I am opinionated, and there are things I really don’t like.
I believe that fandom shouldn’t be a space for hate. It should be a space for love and acceptance.
I’m sorry this reply turned into a huge rant, I just have a lot of feelings on this particular subject. I promise I will never throw acid in your face if you don’t like something I love.
I know what it’s like to be standing in line to see your favorite band in concert for the first time, and to have some jerks drive by in their car and throw stuff at you. It sucks a lot.
“The brief was to portray Disney princesses enjoying a little tea party but they all had to be portrayed the same age as their respective movies (for example Snow White would be 75 years old, Aurora 53, Belle 21, Rapunzel 2 etc). ”
ok that’s actually pretty cool
I like this. I like it a lot.
This is the first time I’ve actually seen a piece of disney artwork like this.
I will always reblog this
This is a hug. Hold onto it. You’re going to need it in the future.
Try to enjoy the ride.
You make a sim town. The next thing you know Dawn Summers is telling fart jokes to Derek Hale while Neville Longbottom is gardening in the background.
My thoughts exactly.
See, that’s what I’ve never understood about this whole “fake geek vs. real geek” thing. When I like something, I want everyone else to like it too. To the point where I become irrationally offended when someone else doesn’t like it.
ALL OF THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We Didn’t Start the Fire - 50 Years of Fandom
password to watch: fandom!
IMPORTANT NOTE: I am neither Fiercynn nor Scribe - hence the link. I just felt it was entirely, entirely, completely necessary to share this with everyone, because this is one of the most amazing things that I have ever seen in my life. I just - fuck. I’m in tears as I type this, because this vid? Is not about a bunch of fandoms, it’s about what fandom is, it’s about a tradition that goes back a long, long time of people looking at stories and saying “here’s what I have to say about that,” and other people listening. Towards the end it gets into fandoms I know, fandoms I’m in or have been in, and that’s when I started crying, because - this is going to sound so ridiculous, but I can’t help it, because that was when I realized that I was part of it, this old often-problematic beautiful revolutionary thing. And then, the last few minutes, it gives us characters who tell stories in the stories (Becky Rosen!), it saysyes, you, this is your story too. It’s two-thirty in the morning, I’m crying, and I may not be coherent but I have absolutely no regrets. Watch this.
Wow. Wow wow wow wow.
For me, the best thing about this is the fact that it’s in a pretty chronological order. Because eventually I was like “It’s nice to see all the fandoms of yore— WAIT, THIS IS WHERE I CAME IN!” and then water was leaking from my eyeholes because omg, hello fandoms that I have seen rise and fall.
This is a fucking masterpiece of vidding.
I got teary when I saw due South. <3
seeing cristina and burke’s first kiss gave me goosebumps
This is one of the most amazing vids I’ve ever watched.
