sorry if my tumblr is dead right now. I’m in Chicago filming La Chingada, which you should come see if you’re in the area. I’ll be back to regular scheduled programming by sunday night and answer any messages
CONGRATULATIONS to The Sterek Campaign for winning Fandom Feat of the Year! Your passion is amazing and this award is BEYOND well deserved. <3
When I die spread my ashes at Comic Con because that’s probably the only way I’ll ever get there.
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
I’m in on this feud and I have chosen my side.
MARA WILSON, YOU HAVE MY SWORD.
AND YOU HAVE MY BOW.
AND MY AXE!
Gondor will see it done.
so S2 of Hemlock Grove sucked. S1 was all over the place with characters and plot introductions, but at least it was interesting and creepy.
I attest to not being the biggest Letha fan, but that’s because she brought nothing to the table but romance and drama. The blonde in S2 is almost a Letha 2.0 and I still don’t know if her name is Meredith or Miranda or Mandy. I know that she’s a pretty awful addition to the story, especially since she was only dropped in for convenience.
I would have preferred if Destiny had more screen time, and since this show isn’t shy about the incest, they could have had her be the one to bring the boys back together. It would have been infinitely more interesting.
On that note, all the pointless sex on Hemlock Grove, and the sex scene that would have had made the most impact and been the most important to show, was a fade to black…? I’m side-eyeing you so hard.
I was so angry about shelley’s storyline because the people that love her already loved her and didn’t give a shit about her looks. They thought she was beautiful. Growing her a new body is fucking stupid.
The last two episodes played more like a comedy than anything because it was beyond ridiculous.
Tatiana tears up as a fan thanks Tatiana and the show for giving her the courage to come out and for writing Cosima as a character who is more than her sexuality. (x)
before this season, the only fights Derek won were against Scott
whoa. This is a weird year for me when it comes to SDCC. I have not and will not watch the panel or any interviews this year, when last July I was re-watching footage

and what about possessed!Stiles. Fox!Stiles. Stiles weapon of choice being a baseball bat? Those are things I’ve seen constantly in fic.
Everything mentioned above are all popular tropes in fanon material, coincidentally used in canon after they were already established in fic. I don’t want to say they take our ideas, but to mock us for our ideas when they seem to be riding the same line…
Stay classy, Teen Wolf.

Bryan Fuller on Hannigram shippers (x)
This fandom is the best fandom.
Amidst the waves of fandom vs. creator hate gushing over Tumblr right now, I think we should take a moment to appreciate the real fandom-loving creator.
He ships Hannigram, adores fanart, gave the actors flower crowns after seeing the edits, embraces ‘swiggity swag the nightmare stag’ and even gave a fan’s suggested name to one of the dogs in the show! He loves his fans and even encourages them to view the show however they please and go as far as they want to.
Thank you, lovely Bryan Fuller, you are the best!
Do you know what fandom has done for me?
Fandom made me feel normal. Fandom taught me about myself, taught me sexuality and gender and taught me that I don’t have to listen to people when they tell me I’m too harsh on men or that my expectations are too high. It gave me people to talk to when I felt alone and it gave me a voice when I thought I didn’t have one.
But more than anything, fandom has given me fanfiction.
I’ve been writing fic since I was twelve. I wasn’t any good in the beginning - none of us are - but fanfiction and the constant feedback helped me to realize the pitfalls of my writing, the tactics I fell back on again and again.
Fanfiction taught me how to develop a world. It taught me how to develop characters as individuals, it taught me about character flaws and character strengths, and about motive and emotion and so many other things.
Fanfiction has given me a expansive vocabulary that surprises most people.
Fanfiction has allowed me to explore sexuality and gender and kinks to my heart’s desire and all without ever having to face the judgmental looks of the real world. Because I am a female and a female shouldn’t have these thoughts or urges, a “proper female” should not know about the things I know about.
You know what else fandom and fanfiction has done? It told me otherwise. It told me that I was beautiful and perfect just the way I am. I don’t need to change and I don’t need to be ashamed and anyone who makes me feel like that is an asshole.
You might not think I’m a good writer and that’s okay. On my worst days, I’d agree with you. But in my bones, I know I was born to do this one thing. I was born to write and fanfiction continues to help me develop this skill into something I can hopefully call my career one day.
Fandom is the breeding ground for the next generation of authors and screenwriters and fanfiction is the tool we use to get better.
So don’t you dare mock fandom and don’t you dare mock fanfiction because it is so much more important than your shitty television show will ever be.
no but seriously. there was a time when I shipped Erica and Stiles.
"Stiles…You make a good batman."
my fucking heart was sold.
