oh wow the braincell’s really going back and forth today huh
oh wow the braincell’s really going back and forth today huh
okay so i kinda mentioned this lowkey a few times but basically i was (am?) doing a bit of dating a few months ago, went on a series of dates with this one person until he wanted to kiss and i freaked out and was like “no” (i am uh. very new to this and trying to figure myself out so. y e a h)
and at the time he was chill about it but then we kinda stopped texting a week or so later, so that’s that. i’m more relieved about it than anything because it was so awkward xD
but anyways, i decided to go back into it a bit today (dating apps, i mean), and i’m chatting with this one guy and he keeps asking me what i’m looking for and i was like “well. i’m new to the whole dating thing so nothing too crazy or fast? just trying to get to know people.”
which is true, btw. and then he asked what i’m not looking for, and i’m like “????? i think i made it pretty clear what i’m not looking for???”
so i kinda said that and then asked him what he was looking for because clearly there’s some level of miscommunication going on here or something. he needs to be more specific because my braincell can only do so much in a night.
and now he’s not replying so LOL that was weird
my jaw hurts.
hot take but it boggles my mind that there are youtubers like star wars theory who are able to essentially write and read out loud “fanfiction” in a video and then make money off of that (either indirectly through merch or just number of clicks, etc). and they don’t get in legal trouble for that?
meanwhile actual fanfiction writers have to be super super careful to make no profit off of their own gift, and they put in all this time and effort into Actually Writing their stories (instead of just filming themselves talking about it)
and yet, people like swt are the ones making money like that, no problem.
am i misunderstanding the situation here, or does anyone else find this really strange?
heavy breathing noises
also i’m,,,,, happy? so happy :’))))))
finally got the news i’ve been waiting for, after all this time. and i’m so happy ahhhhhh thank goodness
like i feel like my life is finally moving forward again, instead of me just being stuck in this one place and feeling so trapped. i can live.
i can’t stop smiling :)
Highkey wish there were more clone wars/star wars prequels zines (yes because I do want to write for one eventually) and that there would be one that showcases writers more than artists
you know what i’m really sick and tired of in fandom?
the term “mary sue”
it’s like. okay sure you don’t like the character and whatever, that’s on you and your interpretation of the story, but to call any character that term is to demean their journey, their character arc, and call it meaningless.
when the fact is there are people out there who love that character more than anyone else. people who will see you call that character a mary sue and feel upset to see other people calling them that.
their absolute favorite character that they really love so much, and other people are just. invalidating all of that completely?
so please, can we just stop with that?
every day, i have vague ideas for things i wanna write but make very little progress on the things i’m supposed to be writing.
sometimes i grieve for the person i would’ve been if chronic headaches and whatever else is wrong with me weren’t actually a thing
got to meet up with some friends and do some fun day trip stuff! i had a really fun time :’))))
but usually things like this end with me getting a headache, and as expected: brain pain. ow.
Timothée Chalamet and Elle Fanning as Regulus Black and Pandora Lovegood may just be one of marauders tiktok’s best ideas.
The way that tiktok made me fall for Regulus x Pandora so easily is entirely unfair!
*pokes braincell* write
professor: "are you feeling powerful and pumped up, now that you've learned these skills?"
me, learning this for probably the second or third time: "no, my head hurts and i feel like throwing up or crying. or both."
fifteen minutes to the start of another 3-hour class, and my head hurts
let’s make up a hypothetical (ish) fandom situation
there are two characters that we’re gonna focus on here: character X and character Y
now, typical of most fandoms, I would say that there are people who really like X, people who really like Y, people who like both, people who like neither.
something we all need to remember is that people form emotional connections with characters when they first interact with media. maybe it has to do with what they’re going through at that point, which allows them to connect to one character more than another.
maybe it’s because of their own life experiences and how they can relate that to what they see the character go through.
maybe it’s just vibes. maybe it’s maybelline
if someone likes a character that you do not like, you should not a. disrespect them for it, and b. make generalizations about people who do like that character.
if you don’t like character Y, for example, and you encounter someone who does and for whatever reason, the interaction doesn’t go well. that does not mean that literally all people who like character Y are going to treat you the same way.
that does not give you the right to go around insulting anyone who feels a deep emotional connection to character Y, anyone who feels as though character Y helped them through some of the most difficult times in their life.
(yes i’m talking about myself and obi-wan)
anyways, that’s what I’ve been seeing lately and it really hurts to see it. that’s what has been upsetting me so much about recent happenings.
it is absolutely, totally fine for anyone to dislike character Y. what is not okay is deliberately going after people for doing so, taking words out of their mouths, insulting them and anyone else for just liking character Y, and not leaving them alone even when they ask.
this is a fandom. of course collectively, we are allowed to have different opinions about characters, ships, etc. but we have to respect each other and understand that everyone has a different background, a different experience with their interaction with canon and the story at large.
still laughing about the one time i was reading a fic out loud on vc and I said “grandmother” instead of “grandmaster” LOL
