    Person: makes post full of blatantly incorrect and anti-Dany statements like “book!Dany feels entitled to rule through fire and blood and brutally slaughters anyone who questions her entitlement” and “her birthright was always more important to her than any altruistic plan she had, this is her fatal flaw and if she doesn’t change she is destined to turn into a narcissistic and power-hungry dictator”.

    Person: addresses Dany stans in a tone that makes it clear that they see Dany stans as dumb unreasonable idiots for believing Dany is a hero destined to save the world.

    Person: Posts said post in a general fandom tag.

    Also person: I can’t believe Dany stans keep creating wank in this fandom!

    (Because how dare we question their blatant incorrect interpretations of Daenerys, right? We should all just quietly accept everything they say, otherwise we are “creating fandom wank”)

    how to say I don’t understand the source material or culture without saying I don’t understand the source material or culture:

    #fandom wank #............. okay so. well here's the thing. #also what is the fixation of ppl with trying to make the Jiang's accept Wen's lmao #ppl are so fixated on this like well yunmeng jiang is evil bc they didn't care about the wen remnants - fam their clan literally decimated #the jiang clan. including the main family. so. #like yeah oh you know what'd really honor your ancestors. if you went buddy buddy with the clan that destroyed yours lmao #okay I went and did a quick search and the novel actually. has Jiang Cheng address the Wen remnants issue lmao #in chap 73. so even if he felt sympathetic to the remnants. he couldn't do anything bc of (1) honor (2) it would make him persona non grata #as far as the cultivation families go. and like. as a young sect leader of a rebuilding clan. he can't AFFORD to go against public opinion #let alone the fact that the Wen clan slaughtered his family & sect #the other part I don't remember exactly but I kind of had the impression that the only Wen remnants that were left were like. women & #children and the elderly? but like I don't remember exactly #also how on earth do you think wwx forming an army would go. after everything qishan wen did

    Some shit’s going down in the anti-Sophie Hunter tinhat community.  Massive internal dissension and wank.  Between the people who think BC’s been subjected throughout his life to MKULTRA mind control and people who think he’s an evil famewhore who controls every aspect of the media and... really everyone else on earth.  Including other tinhats.

    I always feel like a bad person for enjoying this stuff but I doooooo.

    antis/oBjeCtivE intElleCtuAls/casuals: Dany is so hyper fixed on the Iron Throne & her Houses legacy, obv forshadowing her burning X. Gurl is SO selfish, greedy, obsessed [perfect foundation for becoming mad😈]

    Dany in the books: has willingly delayed her return [for very selfless & altruistic reasons such as abolishing slavery & protecting her people] , stays in Essos. Pre-Viserys death didn't considered herself as heir to House Targaryen. Just wants her red door & her freaking lemon tree, normal life as wife & mother. Considered the possibility of : "And if I never march for Westeros? "- ADwD Daenerys IX

    Last chapter of Dany in the books: suffers under dyhydration, hunger, poisonous berries, the cold, a miscarriage, the weather... all that leads to a hallucinated conversation with her dead brother & by-her-proclaimed fromer best Jorah Mormont, them urging her to avenge her family & reclaim their lost kingdom & home. And her arguing "no, I'm goddamn tired!" While also having a breakdown, because she can't name the girl, Drogon killed during his hunt, in her CURRENT delirious state.

    antis/oBjeCtivE intElleCtuAls/casuals typo A: 🙈

    antis/oBjeCtivE intElleCtuAls/casuals typo B: Dany's bad side finally kick-in! She, in complete awareness, WILLINGLY forgets Hazzea and goes ~oh well~, after deciding she values her Dragons over her people => burning thousands of civilians. This certain part,[ I just pulled out completely out of context,] in her last chapter completely a) erases her entire plot [of ADwD] or b) equals the ~built-up & forshadowing of x~ over 5 books! YEAH FINALLY MY SECONDARY FAV CAN BE KING/QUEEN/IN THE SPOTLIGHT WITHOUT BEING COMPLETELY OVERSHADOWED & THREATENED BY THIS 16 YO GIRL!!

    all antis/oBjeCtivE intElleCtuAls: book!Dany is way däRkér in temperament & soo rutHlèsS. There is SO MUCH built-up for MY headcanon of her burning no-one-really-cares-about King's Landing, half a world away!/ being the ACTUAL Mad!Queen!

    Dozen of other characters, way more suitable for this scenario/actual book!Dany/ PACING/... reading comprehension; AM I A JOKE TO YOU??

    ✨My reaction✨:

    + questions the reading comprehension & common sense of people

    People who complain about Seb and Carlos not getting enough screen time absolutely mystify me.  Maybe it’s because I didn’t grow up with representation like this, but some people just come off so so entitled and obnoxious. Would I like to see more of them? Obviously, yes! But I’m also aware that this is a Disney show and the writers and producers probably have to fight for every crumb that we get. The kiss in episode 5 wasn’t scripted and I’m willing to bet that’s at least partially because if the kiss had been there, the script might not have been approved by the Disney execs. Acting like the writers are simply choosing not to give us more seblos when Tim Federle is openly gay and has spoken numerous times about how important seblos is to him is tone deaf and ridiculous, imo. 

    #HSMTMTS#seblos#discourse#negativity#fandom wank #representation is a fight and we haven't won yet #and acting like the writers on this show aren't part of that fight? #do you think we would have seblos at all if they didn't fight for it? #no#we wouldn't

    Frankenstein’s Meme - Day 7

    (Full list of questions at the bottom, under the cut.  Previous answers can be found here.)

    7.  What would make you leave a fandom, or prevent you from getting into it in the first place?

    Honestly, the only thing that makes me leave a fandom is naturally losing interest in it--just letting it run its course, you know?  Maybe if I’d ever been seriously involved in any drama, it would have been enough to sour me on a fandom, but (partly for that very reason) I’ve always kind of kept to the fringes.  At this point I’m old enough and impervious enough that no amount of second-hand cringe is capable of keeping me from a fandom I genuinely enjoy.  Especially since I survived the Hetalia fandom in its heyday, like, lololololol, WOW, what a special, special dumpster fire that was.

    Similarly, nothing really prevents me from getting into a fandom, save for the canon not really grabbing me?  Alternatively, sometimes (oftentimes?) I just find the canon satisfying enough on its own and don’t feel the need to explore the characters and/or the world any more.

    .

    .

    .

    (Originally posted by trobadora, on DW.)

    1. What’s changed about your fandom life in the last 365 days? 2. Your newest fandom. 3. You’ve got your OTP, you have to throw a third into the mix (from the same fandom), creating an OT3. Who is the OTP, and in your opinion, why would they make a perfect third for them? 4. What are the origins of your penname/username? 5. What’s a fandom that you wish had a bigger following? 6. What’s the longest you’ve ever been in a fandom? What fandom was it? Not necessarily your oldest fandom, but a fandom that you started and still continue to read/write/create content for in some way. 7. What would make you leave a fandom, or prevent you from getting into it in the first place? 8. Squicks - What are some things that squick you in fandom - not necessarily “icky”, though it can be. From anything involving blood, to bad grammar. 9. What’s the hardest thing about writing, and why are titles the Worst™? 10. Do you have a fandom that you follow - either regularly or casually - with little to no knowledge of canon? 11. Ships that you currently like a lot. (They don’t have to be OTPs because not everyone has OTPs.) Friendships, pairings, threesomes, etc. are allowed. 12. A ship you have never liked and probably never will. 13. Do you prefer art, fic, or vids? Why? Bonus: If someone was to give you a fandom gift, what format would it be? 14. A pairing – platonic, romantic or sexual – that you initially didn’t consider, but someone changed your mind. 15. What was the first thing you ever contributed to a fandom? 16. Do you remember your first OTP? Who was in it? 17. What is your favourite source text for fandom stuff (e.g., TV shows, movies, books, anime, Western animation, etc.)? 18. How many fandoms have you written for? How many have you been in, and how many are you still in? 19. Has social media caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why? 20. What fandom broke your heart? 21. Say something genuinely nice about a character who isn’t one of your faves. (Characters you’re neutral about are fair game, as are characters you dislike or even loathe.) 22. Name a character that you’d like to have for a friend. 23. Your rarest fandoms. 24. A fandom you’ve abandoned and why. 25. Do you have any hard and fast headcanons that you will die defending? 26. A trope which you are virtually certain to love in any fandom. 27. A trope which you are virtually certain to hate in any fandom. 28. How did you first get into fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote fic for? 29. Have you ever tried to write for a fandom or ship, and found you couldn’t? 30. Name three things you wish you saw more of in your main fandom (or a fandom of choice).

    Rumor has it a certain actress is dating a crew member from TWD so this is probably why she was on set watching filming y’all.  TSDF 2.0 has an agenda so don’t take the bait please. Caryl on!

    still forever weird to me how “everywhere she goes evil men die” was spun into an evil mad!queen daenerys narrative when all it does is highlight that she dismantles abusive powers to be & that maybe, just maybe, show!tyrion was able to reflect how he was going to be next on the premise treason by not abating varys & tattling sooner & releasing jaime so that he could FREE cersei

    like, that one line continuously sticks out to be “everywhere she goes evil men die” as if it were written to be celebrating dany instead of criminalizing her like i just do not. comprehend. how killing evil men was a bad thing.

    If I have to read one more "um, wouldn't Eda be pansexual instead of bisexual if she dated Raine?" argument, I'm going to lose my mind.

    Pansexuality and bisexuality are both wonderful identities that can describe people of all genders, and there is nothing about either one of them that excludes nonbinary people. Sexualities are not diagnoses, and someone isn't "automatically" under any label they don't want to be under. Eda doesn't "have to" be pansexual in order to be attracted to Raine.

    I'm not here to police anyone's headcanons or experiences or harsh the fandom fun, but the "well, if she's attracted to Raine, she MUST be pan" idea is hurtful. Speaking as a bisexual nonbinary person married to a bisexual woman, Raine and Eda are very important to me, and the bad-faith "bi vs pan" discourse makes me feel like crap.

    Eda is, in canon, a bisexual woman, unless the writers give her an arc where she explores a different sexuality. To be blunt, that's not going to happen in a show under Disney's thumb that is already getting heat for being Too Gay.

    She's allowed to be bi. So let her be bi.

    The screenshot below highlights Eda holding a box of her things in the episode "Bend it Like Witches." There is a bi pride flag on the side of it.

    #fandom wank#original post #anyone who starts shit on this post is getting blocked to hell and back #I'm tired of this childish bad-faith discourse #let pan people exist and let bi people exist and stop trying to define these identities for other people

    ..... why , in the year 2021, am I receiving sterek hate from teen wolf fans under 18?

    I was pioneering the way for this show back when the cast was still just a ragtag bunch of kids excited to have half a room filled at comic con???

    I was in this fandom before you even grew tits like???? you have no idea? the rollercoaster of betrayal and /literal/ queer baiting that the sterek fans were subjected to?

    I was there when every single member of the cast not only shipped sterek but publicly and actively supported it.

    (This is not an edited gif this is a ////real promotion that teen wolf released in support of a sterek poll////)

    You don’t know the war stories I have to tell, kids.

    Holy SHIT you don’t know anything, so get educated or stay out of my askbox because I’ve paid my dues and am not above slam dunking a bunch of punks tearing tire streaks through a lawn they didn’t grow.

    #why are we still pretending that sterek fans are crazy when it’s one of the few cases of genuine queer baiting in modern television #get fucked sterek haters #teen wolf#sterek#personal #wank for ts #I can’t believe I made this in the year 2021 I might delete it because fuck the teen wolf fandom is grossly toxic

    I'll never understand people who constantly bash on the shows they love like I get it Supernatural isn't perfect (no show is) and especially later seasons it missed it's potential and losing focus on what I personally care about being the brothers etc But Sam and Dean were always enough to get me through the rough parts it had that hold and I'm seeing people on Twitter bashing Bad Boys which is one of my many MANY fave eps and it just completely bums me out. Like okay you sit down and write this show then (and I'm not defending all the writers nor the episodes and things I didn't like) but my god it stresses me out so much to see this negativity over something which means so much to me and has been in my life for years. I love reading analysis here and people's ideas for canon divergent stuff and their character analysis etc that's fun and makes me appreciate my show even more. But straight up negativity all the time just gives me a headache 😑😩

    Every time I see one of those “this fandom is for minors so no smut allowed” posts I just think of 15 year old me who safely and without judgment was able to explore her sexuality and what healthy relationships and toxic relationships were like through fandom and I feel really sad for any teenagers who are feeling shamed for wanting that same experience.

    Anyway, purity culture sucks.

    I’m tired of finding anti vs stan/proshipper wars in Tumblr, so I make these memes out of spite to roast em because I can and I just wanna say that it's kinda funny that fandom discourses can be so petty to toxic whenever it's there 😤
