    even if it is like technically correct i cannot stress enough how 'if harrow had siphoned gideon at the end of gtn when gideon asked her to then they would both have survived and everything would have been Fine' is a deeply baffling misreading of that entire book

    #like sometimes books are like asking you to have critical thoughts and not just. #'whatever the narrative is mine now and i can do what i want' #then again ~~fandom really encourages the latter. so. #critical thinking? in my locked tomb fandom? it is so much less likely than you think

    me: *puts on revolutionary blooming (2019) by alice nine*

    diana, coming into my room: all these Blackpink = Feminism, "abolish boy groups" modern kpop girl group stans need to understand the complexities of j-rock lesbians

    #i will say this new age of kpop girl group stans who think they're too good to like boy groups #are really hating on and shaming 'straight girls' for liking cute boys in a boy band #in a similar fashion to the way teenage boys and adult men will hate boy bands bc girls are dumb for fawning over them and their bad music #???? its the same shit like do you not see it #you can like the music of boy bands you can even think the boys are cute theres nothing wrong or unfeminist about it wtf #and trying to bash them because girls enjoy things cute guys do is...??? not feminist at all??? #also kpop is such an inherently objectifying industry which treats male and female partakers like shit years before debut #all of it is regular pop commercialism which glorifies the pretty able bodied people who have to be idealized #and girl group members really face all the same unfair standards to live up to as boy groups + misogynist criticism #and sometimes are forced into very sexist and wrong performances that they dont want to do ie stellar #but anyway i dont identify w pretty popular girl feminism and i think if you do you have no concept about womens rights #outside of partaking in your favorite online kpop fandoms which is--i can't stress enough--laughable #kpop fans have gotten too young too naive too online and far too serious jeez #i could go on about this for years #girl group stans used to be the coolest and most chill #i also think kids shouldnt be on twitter bc they dont understand anything significant that all the adults are dropping bad takes about #i feel like such a boomer #but anyway its ok to be a lesbian whos been a fan of tvxq for 5 years while always knowing youre a lesbian #its also good to be 22 and reviving your j rock phase bc its fun #diana tells me alice nine are sexy because im apparently a big dumb blind lesbian who would have no capability of telling that #but also bc one time i told her 'you know bigbang would be really hot if they were women' and she was like #'there are a lot of people who find big bang really hot' and i was like...... wow... #here i am looking at bigbang thinking about how hot women are i really am a lesbian #i forgot #shut up kaily

    As someone who've been a fan and has always liked and enjoyed Loki as being this ultra flawed but highly complex , tragic Shakespearean-like morally ambiguous realatble character, I find it kind of sad but also annoying how those that "claim" to be fans or claims to "love" him pretty much from what I've seen from either on here on Tumblr or Twitter tends to treat him like total shit and act like he's responsible for all things awful within the MCU multiverse just because he villain coded or the fact that even half of his own fandom seems to treat Loki character like crap in favor of two brand new characters. Especially when it comes to some of these toxic Pro Loki series fans & how some of them seem to blindly easily eat up anything Disney /Marvel shoved at them because they've said so without using basic critical thinking skills or how some of them poorly respond to criticism of any kind regarding the show itself and act like it's a freaking masterpiece, when honestly the show has a lot of bad issues in its writing as well as a good number of plot holes within it. For me when it comes to the Loki series I still manage to enjoyed it also liked it....But for real the series itself could've been written so much better in a lot of other areas within it also reading certain things from the director / main writer for the show makes it obvious that they've done zero research on the previous movies regarding Loki character or his trauma and the fact it seems both had zero compassion towards Loki character as a whole.

    how it feels to have other ships in the game where Zelink is canon

    #to be clear I LOVE zelink #but the fans are insufferable and have a false sense of superiority #I could rant about how the fandom treats them so much #they're really not some magic subversive inclusive representation couple they are made out to be #fans that ship zelink AND other stuff are great! they're usually critical of the ship and can see flaws #discourse #and the new evidence they're canon is going to maks it worse ;-; #people are just??? really rude to pairing Zelda with characters other than Link in this game

    CONFESSION:

    I actually liked Andromeda. I loved some the characters like Vetra, Drack and such. I enjoyed the gameplay. And some of the banter really made laugh. And yes I had issues with it when I played. I gave it a 6.5/10. That was my review of the game without the influence of the toxic fandom because I actually like to think for myselfinstead of following the crowd/hivemind.

    But before I even played I KNEW the game was doomed before the fandom was even aware of ALL of the problems of it's development. I knew this game was doomed the minute the teaser trailer was released. The amount of whining and complaints, the ridiculous assumptions, the lies, the misinformation many in the fandom spewed doomed the game. The other problems, graphic issues, etc only sped up the process of its failure.

    The irony now is there have been countless articles from Andromeda being revisited and while people still have issues with it, they are actually admitting it was not as bad as they originally made it out to be.

    The Teaser Trailer

    as a certified western cartoon stan i keep on thinking abt the legend of vox machina being an adult cartoon. like most adult cartoons today r your stereotypical ‘adult humor and ugly artstyle and that’s it’ (which is fine if that’s your thing but my point is) they’re doing absolutely nothing to push the medium meanwhile shows like infinity train that want to focus on darker themes and have an adult protagonist for a season in an anthology series get axed because there’s no ‘entry point for kids’.

    there’s such a barrier when it comes to western animation because most adults view it as ‘for kids’ and will only watch ‘adult’ shows while simultaneously disregarding the teenage and adult audiences that enjoy animation and want heavier plot and darker themes and the kids themselves and how what they consume doesn’t matter because it’s ‘just for kids’ as if kids are stupid or people do not carry our childhood tv shows and movies with us into adulthood.

    the success of a plot-driven, darker, western animated series aimed at adults (and hopefully reaching a non-critter, teenaged audience), in my eyes, could be what starts to tear down this stigma around animation being just for kids in the eyes of executives for good.

    (also,,, any critters reading this should go watch infinity train i feel like you all will like it ashley johnson and robbie daymond are in it and i was not joking when i said it gets dark ok that’s all)

    (and any non-critters look out for the legend of vox machina oKAY THATS IT)

    #listen i am a gravity falls stan first and a person second of course im thinking about this #like literally ive heard ppl talking abt this since i was 11 and it’s. still. true. #critical role #the legend of vox machina #tlovm#vox machina #i’m also gonna tag this #infinity train #god i feel bad for cross fandom tagging but i feel like people who like these shows will agree so #the owl house #the dragon prince #gravity falls#amphibia#bee’s post #also i am really not trying to dunk on people who like adult animation as it is like if u like that stuff it’s great! n i think it’s done a #lot for like stretching the limits of comedy and stuff #just my point is we could have More Variety if we find some sort of middle ground #remember when we thought adult swim was gonna do a teen block? god

    said it before but i feel the need to reiterate: soft is a state of being. you soften like you anger or sadden or cheer up.

    it's not a fixed thing. it's not a personality trait.

    at most it's a fashion.

    #/nm; lh #im just incredibly confused by the way people have warped this word its way too vague to be used in the way so many use it¿ #i dont know if vague is the right word but . ex: #personality: angry #that doesnt. that doesnt make a lot of sense yeah #you'd phrase it more like '____ gets angry incredibly easily' or '____ is angry often' #can we go back to doing the same wih soft thank you #again nm just a pet peeve ov mine #dream smp #i guess¿ applies to all fandoms but im.im in. im in this one :D #fandom critical

    me, constantly, for the last two weeks: man tho but I forgot to explain how I theorize the two things I was talking to my therapist about last session actually tie together

    me, now that therapy is later today: but should i bring it up? I don't want her to think I was obsessing about it

    #personal; #I am obsessing about it but like......I don't want HER to think I've been y'feel? #it's not even super important! it doesn't even actually super effect me rn; just my theories on the death of critical thinking in fandom #and how I think it ties a lot into the avg age of the SuperWhoLock fandom when it was huge #and the fact that critical thinking was often discouraged there/a lack of it was rewarded #which I SUPPOSE touches on my fandom trauma but like......that's not really a part of it idt; I was small fry and intentionally stayed away #from shittier people and areas in SWL back in the day

    It's so insidious when people are cool with analyzing otherness and monstrosity through the lens of queerness but the moment someone does that through the lens of race or culture all of a sudden they're reading too much into things and told it's not that deep. And like it's so irritating because if you look at the history of sci fi and fantasy, there's a stronger precedence to look at these things through a racial/cultural lens

    #this isn't to say looking at it through a queer lens is invalid #it's just that it's not as strong as race or culture but is the primary lens people use #spn#tw racism#fandom critical

    i love how i was in one fandom where the author redeemed a child abuser and the whole fandom hated it even though the guy seriously regretted his actions and atoned for them, meanwhile in this other fandom i’m in child abuse is completely redeemable even if the guy doesn’t feel remorse about it ToT because it’s a “moral grey area”

    #tw abuse #tw child abuse #critical #if you know who the first guy is congrats! #i actually liked his redemption arc tbh i liked how each person dealt with it differently and they didn’t have to forgive him and he didn’t #- even want to be forgiven he just wanted to healthily leave their life and try to atone #meanwhile c!dream would do it again and this fandom still loves him sjdjdkskdnfnmdmsnsn #negative#my meta

Why #pogtopia niki was badass . villain niki's just sad. tragic. #yk . like All the villain arcs on this server ever #im not gonna pretend there arent /gen 'they deserve it' for everyone else too but None ever neared as much as niki. Ever #this may be a tad bold but it was . quite literally . solely because she was a woman i think #again 99% of it was lh but it's just. its just odd 2 me #fandom critical#dream smp

    One of the things across fandoms that will never cease to boggle the mind is the way people will sneer at others for getting upset over how heinously bigoted and regressive views are being glorified in a piece of media because “it’s just fiction!!,” and then proceed to dedicate literal years of their actual lives to defending the honor of some fake war criminal.
