look at these things
they’re like tiny
but instead of breathing fire they squeak and cuddle
and they have funny ears and noses
I mean really
bats are amazing
Fandom is focus. Fandom is obsession. Fandom is insatiable consumption. Fandom is sitting for hours in front of a TV screen a movie screen a computer screen with a comic book a novel on your lap. Fandom is eyestrain and carpal tunnel syndrome and not enough exercise and staying up way, way past your bedtime.
Fandom is people you don’t tell your mother you’re meeting. Fandom is people in the closet, people out and proud, people in costumes, people in T-shirts with slogans only fifty others would understand. Fandom is a loud dinner conversation scaring the waiter and every table nearby.
Fandom is you in Germany and me in the US and him in Australia and her in Japan. Fandom is a sofabed in New York, a roadtrip to Oxnard, a friend behind a face in London. Fandom talks past timezones and accents and backgrounds. Fandom is conversation. Communication. Contact.
Fandom is drama. Fandom is melodrama. Fandom is high school. Fandom is Snacky’s law and Godwin’s law and Murphy’s law. Fandom is smarter than you. Fandom is stupider than you. Fandom is five arguments over and over and over again. Fandom is the first time you’ve ever had them.
Fandom is female. Fandom is male. Fandom lets female play at being male. Fandom bends gender, straight, gay, prude, promiscuous. Fandom is fantasy. Fandom doesn’t care about norms or taboos or boundaries. Fandom cares too much about norms and taboos and boundaries. Fandom is not real life. Fandom is closer than real life. Fandom knows what you’re really like in the bedroom. Fandom is how you would never, could never be in the bedroom.
Fandom is shipping, never shipping, het, slash, gen, none of the above, more than the above. Fandom is love for characters you didn’t create. Fandom is recreating the characters you didn’t create. Fandom is appropriation, subversion, dissention. Fandom is adoration, extrapolation, imitation. Fandom is dissection, criticism, interpretation. Fandom is changing, experimenting, attempting.
Fandom is creating. Fandom is drawing, painting, vidding: nine seasons in four minutes of love. Fandom is words, language, authoring. Fandom is essays, stories, betas, parodies, filks, zines, usenet posts, blog posts, message board posts, emails, chats, petitions, wank, concrit, feedback, recs. Fandom is writing for the first time since you were twelve. Fandom is finally calling yourself a writer.
Fandom is signal and response. Fandom is a stranger moving you to tears, anger, laughter. Fandom is you moving a stranger to speak.
Fandom is distraction. Fandom is endangering your job, your grades, your relationships, your bank account. Fandom gets no work done. Fandom is too much work. Fandom was/is just a phase. Fandom could never be just a phase. Fandom is where you found a friend, a sister, a kindred spirit. Fandom is where you found a talent, a love, a reason.
Fandom is where you found yourself.
It’s in order of how much one’s worth from high to low.
Bold names = characters we know
Red = dead
- Names that aren’t on the list (yet): Malia, Peter and Liam
- Scott still is “The hot girl” with 25M behind his name (It’s not really fun to be the hot girl in Beacon Hills now is it ^^)
- Jordan Parrish is on the list with 5M, so what is he exactly?
- The codes were ‘Allison’ and ‘Aiden’, who were both close to Lydia and killed by the Oni, who were controlled by the Nogitsune. So what will the third code be?
- The last part of the list has names with a worth of 21.750.000, so how many names are on it and who?
- Are de codes linked to Lydia and her Banshee powers alone or also linked to ‘The Benefactor’?
is it any fucking wonder that clevverTV pulled this read-fanfiction-to-the-cast bullshit? remember, this is the super classy channel that brought us “guess the wolf abs" where they used a paparazzi snapped photo of dylan o’brien on a beach— instead of using photos from dylan o’brien’s movie the first time where he was shirtless for the camera— prompting DOB to ask “… whereee did you get that photo?” and making everyone watching SUPREMELY UNCOMFORTABLE. this is also the channel who brought us “five things that should happen in teen wolf" which featured a segment saying that kate and derek should pursue a romantic relationship again because their dynamic is hot, hot, hot!!! (nothing hotter than seducing teen boys so you can lie to them and murder their families, amirite?!?)
lmao clevverTV is and has always been a fucking garbage can of an entertainment news source, that’s not surprising. this fanfiction garbage is just same shit, different day.
but it’s 2014 and i’m so beyond over this trend of portraying fanfiction as something to be ridiculed and laughed at. people are putting their time and effort into writing for free, because they ENJOY the canon and want to express that, and to invite criticism or laughter onto what they’ve written in front of the people who helped inspire them is fucking cruel, and, honestly? it’s been done before. we get it, ha-ha-ha, isn’t fanfiction so strange aren’t these people writing it so weird??? i’m so over this shitlord rhetoric i can’t even handle it.
fuck you clevvertv. just— fuck you. so fucking much.
So since Parrish is a supernatural, and after I saw that trailer, I read up about mythical creatures immune to fire and a lot of stuff came up but one of the more popular and one that i think might work is a Phoenix
They can live to be thousands of years old and still appear incredibly young
They were wise, intelligent beasts
And if they died they would be consumed by flames
Only to be reborn from the ashes
They were hella fine creatures too
KINDA IN LOVE WITH THIS THEORY
