You know, tomorrow is Take Back the Tag, and I can’t wait. As I said in that last post I reblogged…. certain individuals left me not participating to the extent I was in the RB fandom. And I love it so dearly, and all you guys, so tomorrow I’m going to do a few screencap picspams. I’d have done gifs, a vid or a couple of fancy-ish graphics, but, you know, study must come first.
I hope that no one by any means thinks I’ve quit the RB ship, or that I don’t ship them as much as I used to. Far from it!!! I just learned a very long, long time ago while in another fandom with the same crappy fan vs fan bullshit….. that if people are making you feel miserable? Focus on what makes you not feel miserable and brings you the most joy.
My ships bring me joy. Working on fic brings me joy. Creating art for my fic brings me joy. Privately discussing my ships brings me joy.
Basically minimalizing the asshattery of fandom as a whole brings me joy.
But I am sitll here 1000% and I’m not going anywhere. I just find joy in all the ways I can (which for me is obsessing over all my OTPs at random lol).
So yeah……. that’s just something I wanted to say before I head off to bed. Just in case there was any concern that I had quit the fandom or whatever.
Let’s say I make a post about Rumple. It’s untagged. And then someone reblogs that post saying they hate Rumple and lists reasons why.
Yeah, I’m going to counteract that with MY OPINION! And yes, it will probably come off harsh but hey…you jumped into a snakepit, you were going to get bitten.
Someone who made that untagged post isn’t being a bully. YOU are. A Hook fan doesn’t want to hear that. I, as a Rumple fan, wouldn’t want to hear that about MY BABY. I’m all for civil discussion of these characters. My followers, which include some Hooker/CSers, have watched me defend Rumple or Belle over Hook. They didn’t act like immature children about it.
I can see the difference between someone wanting a discussion, and someone being a total asshole. You were trying to start shit with boyfriendhook. I saw her reblog with a response…and I was like “oh fuck, she did not”.
Ever since I’ve become friends with CSers and Hookers I’ve been slammed with anon hate left and right. I’ve been told I’m not “allowed” to be friends with them and ship Rumbelle or like Rumple. And quite frankly, it’s kind of been hell. My other followers, bless them, have had to put up with my rants because if I don’t rant on my own blog? I’m going to blow a fucking fuse.
So, tell me who is the bully here? I also don’t feel very welcome in the Rumbelle fandom anymore, despite writing tons of Rumbelle fanfic, writing meta, and making fanart. Thanks for that.
YOU ARE SO VERY WELCOME IN THE RUMBELLE FANDOM!!!!!!!
AGREE! You are totally welcome in the fandom. Just ignore the handful of haters that clog up your Anon box. They’re not worth the time and effort.
Always welcome in MY corner, fellow elf!
Thank you fellow elf! It just got kind of….crazy yesterday, but with the hiatus ending maybe things will calm down.
And *snort* Don’t make her sic Mr. Gold on you…
I feel you Winter. I’m a huge Rumbeller, but I have closed myself off to participating in too great an amount compared to how I used to (which honestly makes me cry) because of how hurt certain fans have left me feeling.
This isn’t school, the bitches don’t get to run the playground. the OUAT fandom is for everyone, not just them.
Oh. I forgot how much I love Mat Kearney’s music. That’s man’s voice……….
I couldn’t upload the colour version of my new sidebar image, so I made a black and white version….. and thought I’d share them both.
Did I tell you guys I’ve written just a bit over 1k words for ‘I’ll Give Away All I Know’? I wish I was writing it right now, but I’m trying to figure out how best to write a mini article on how to ride a bike……….. in my mind, there is no thinking, you just…. do.
I feel queasy :-/
Smell some cologne or alcohol. That calms the stomach fast and it’s very effective. Ginger Ale is also good or really cold water drank in tiny sips.
Thanks Straggle! Aside from refrigerated bottled water, I don’t have any of that. Although the mention of ginger just reminded me I have some traveling chews….. I shall go hunt them down.
This Friday (tomorrow), post your meta, fic, art, porn, or nice opinions in the #Rumbelle, #Rumbelle Fic, #Rumbelle Art, and #Anyelle tags.
Because our show is coming back on Sunday and I’m tired of looking at people being nasty every time I check for updates.
This is happening.
I like this. It speaks to me in a…. ‘Fuck yeah your ships are going to hurt you, if they’re happy all the time they won’t evolve and make you FEEL, so prepare for pain’ kind of way.
Does anyone have any rumbelle stills. I need a new phone background I can’t find any, please help :)
There’s Skin Deep, A Land Without Magic and Broken screencaps in HD here. Caps take forever to do, so I only have those three. But I hope they might help.
Do you want a random message? Hit like, and when I’m finished having lunch I’ll send you something happy! (it could be a quote, a mini fic, or something else entirely)
Slightly late (36 minutes), but I got my self-evaluation assignment uploaded. It just took a while longer because I forgot to write two parts. DUMBASS! *shakes head at self* But yay for it being away with the tutor!
Now to go have lunch, then get stuck into my other exercises. First one? The children’s story stuff. I’ve got ideas, but forgot to write them up. Ooopsies.
i adore them both equally but if were continuing with your you must pick id say the color just cuz it pops a bit more but i really do love em both!!!! oh and i made icons of my own from some of your older pieces definitely using on once sunday/monday
Oh yay I’m glad you liked ‘em!!
YOU MADE ICONS? Ooooh, I need to see those!
