[Cap + 28 + they/them] [I like Star Trek, The Mandalorian, and whatever else has my attention at the moment] [currently multishipping: skymandolo (dinluke, handalorian, skysolo), dincobb, bobadin] [my stuff / my fic / AO3 / header]
We looked inside some of the posts by capdjarin and here's what we found interesting.
It has come to my attention that some of you have been enjoying media that the OAF (Organization Against Fun) has deemed Problematic™.
This is unacceptable.
The frankly appalling behavior in question is exemplified by, but not limited to, engaging with themes not suitable for five year olds, speaking about or writing complex characters without constantly emphasizing how evil they are, and creating fanworks that do not appeal to me personally without asking for my permission or begging for my forgiveness.
Since you people do not possess my superior intellect, you have thus misinterpreted the phrase “thinking critically” to mean “analyzing and interpreting a work” instead of the correct definition “nitpicking perceived flaws”. Fear not, you will be re-educated.
Aditionally, certain individuals, who shall remain unnamed, have displayed shocking amounts of empathy towards morally grey characters, or worse, developed a fondness for villainous characters who were written to be charming and dramatic. When confronted with my lecture about how villains are evil, these individuals responded with “and that’s very sexy of them.”
The OAF cannot let this stand.
Instead of shipping Woke™ ships with a far less interesting dynamic, there have been various attempts to normalize, romanticize, fetishize, realize and caramelize illegal ships, which should be punishable by death as it is tantamount to a war crime.
Sadly, the AO3 (Archive of Our Own) responded to my reasonable demands for censorship by telling me to “fuck off or learn to use the tagging system for its intended purpose.”
I must ask all who are currently having fun in their fandoms to cease and desist.
august: are any of your fics associated with certain genres/artists/songs/etc?
Yeah!! Almost every fic has some sort of musical influence cause I listen to playlists to get the vibe right when I’m writing
The most direct song association is Dancing With a Stranger (song by the same name) which was intentional and meant to be thematic.
but I also just realized recently that High Hopes (song), Coming Down (song), and Take Your Time (song) are all song titles as well but I didn’t do it intentionally cause they’re also generic phrases (which was the intention lmao) but they must’ve been in the back of my head o_o
Oh, god, um, so I actually went back to my ff.net account to find this. I honestly almost considered lying but I have to maintain my honor. I’m embarrassed to say that I was 14 but apparently having a great time. Warning for character death?!
september: share a comment or review which still warms your heart?
Can I say all of them??? But in all seriousness, there was one recently where someone complimented me on something that I actually usually get anxious about wrt my writing (how easy things seem between the characters; sometimes too easy but I JUST WANT THEM TO HAVE FUN OK) and it really meant a lot!!
when you are on the internet, and you happen upon a ship you did not previously know existed, and you think to yourself “lol why the hell would anyone ship that”, and you go into the ao3 tag for a laugh just to see what the fanfiction ecosystem is like for this absurd new rarepair you have discovered, and you see a fic and think without a trace of irony “hm i kind of wanna read that”. that is your last chance to get out. your make or break moment. you are icarus and your wings are starting to smoulder. you need to make a decision there and then about who you are, what kind of person you’re going to be. because once you click that link there’s no going back for you. and that is a promise.
