It’s been a while…

But god-dammit I have a life!

I always feel guilty about neglecting my tumblr. I ♡ it and it’s collection of fandom ♡lyness.

Just back from watching Iron Man 3. All I have to sat is OMG! EPIC!

Also …. SCIENCE BROS! ♥♥♥

iwantcupcakes:

Vulture tells Mark Ruffalo about Science Bros.  Mark loves it, plans to call RDJ about it.

From Vulture:

Does that mean he’s never heard of “Science Bros,” an Internet subculture celebrating the friendship of Bruce Banner and Tony Stark, the characters Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. played in The Avengers?

“No, what is that?” he asked.

And then the giggles began.

  • “Yes! It’s me and Robert! Look at this! There’s thousands of them!” Ruffalo tried to contain himself. “It’s called the Science Bros. This is awesome. I’ve never heard of it. Why hasn’t anyone told me about that?”
  • “So, are they all quasi-homoerotic?” he asked. “Like tinged with … ” Yup. “That’s cute!” 
  • Is he now a Science Bros shipper, then? “Yeah! I love it; it’s awesome,” Ruffalo enthused. “I endorse it 100 percent. You know what it is? It’s open-source creativity.”
  • Ruffalo couldn’t wait to drop his newfound knowledge bomb on Downey Jr. “I’m going to call him and tell him, and he’s going to laugh his ass off,” Ruffalo said. “He’ll love that.”

I didn’t think it was possible to ♥ Mark Ruffalo more than I already did. Turns out I was wrong. I ♥ that he ♥’s Science Bro’s.

dirtybookshelves:

Here’s a thing I’ve become aware of recently: the Merlin fandom is not in the habit of leaving a lot of feedback (kudos/comments/etc.) on a general basis compared to a lot of other fandoms. I understand: different fandom cultures and all that. But the thing is, it kinda sucks. There’s a lot of recs going on, a lot of passing around of fics and fanarts and graphics, but not that many left directly on the work for the creator to see (ex: tons of hits on a good fic, with very little kudos and/or comments). 

I say this needs to change.  We need to be better than that. A lot of people seem to be panicking these days about the fandom dying, well here is something you can do: let the people who create fanworks know that you appreciate their work, their time, their efforts.

Some easy things you can do (among others):

  • If a fic is on AO3 and you liked it: leave a kudo. It’s ONE click. ONE CLICK. You don’t even need to have an account. It says “hey, I liked this.”
  • Leave a comment if you have the time. I know sometimes it’s harder (I know, I’m absolute shite at it), because you don’t know what to say or you’re shy etc. But let me tell you, sometimes a “I really liked this. Thank you for writing it.” is all that is needed. Your comments don’t have to be essays. Feel free to keysmash too. Nothing says love like a good keysmahing. (and that goes for fics on LJ too, where commenting is the only option you have to show your appreciation)
  • Leave comments on fanarts too (“This is amazing!), on fanvids (those babies take A LOT of time to make), on fanmixes, on graphics etc.
  • REBLOG DO NOT REPOST graphics and fanarts on tumblr. Let the creator see those notes on their posts and feel the love. 
  • On tumblr, it’s sometimes okay, particularly on fanarts, to show your love in the text part instead of the tags. The artist will see the comment on their dash and be happy :D
  • Also on tumblr, go to people ask boxes and leave them nice messageslike “I love your graphics” and “You’re very talented” and “Thank you for sharing with us, your art is amazing” and “I can’t stop listening to your fanmix!” etc. Those are always cherished and they always mean A LOT.

Just do everything you can to show your appreciation. It takes HOURS for people to create fanworks, and they do it for free and they do it for you. It would take, at worst, a few minutes to show your appreciation, at best literally a second (one click!).

We all need to put more effort into this. All of us. If you want this fandom to keep thriving, to not die, let the people who give their free time and efforts know that you care.

SHOW YOUR LOVE. SHOW SUPPORT.

I’m so guilty of not leaving as much (if any) feedback when I read an awesome fic.  I will do better!!

Um. Would anyone like me as their artist for Paper Legends? I haven’t signed up yet because I’m not sure if I’ll be around for the summary post and match-up so I thought it’d be best to ask around first. I tend to draw cute rather than realistic so if it’d…

Glad to help :-D Would you mind if I friended you on LJ?

Paper Legends

I hope I get cheerleader. This Big Bang is kind of kicking my ass! My plot went tits up and I’ve had to start again, because frankly what I had wrote was a wee bit shite.

Annnnd that’s enough whinging from me!
