just putting this out here even though I know most of you don't like him either: if you still support callmecarson or are planning on supporting him when he returns please do not interact with me or my content. what carson did was incredibly gross, and I personally do not want people who support him to interact with me.
I generally suggest that none of you interact with his content at all. do not welcome him back into this community, especially the mcyt community. there are way too many minors in this fandom; it's not safe. and don't hit me with the "people can grow and change" shit. you can't groom a minor and then argue for growth. you can't just move on from something like that. carson's friends stopped talking to him and charlie took legal action. carson is not a safe or trustworthy person. this isn't a product of "cancel culture." his friends were not "fake." this is the product of grooming minors. this is the product of someone taking advantage of his young fans. do not welcome him back with open arms. do not put yourself and others in any kind of danger. remember the victims, and do not interact with me if you still support him.

fun fact about aging: you don’t perceive yourself as being older but you perceive young people as being younger. today I was in a zoom meeting with a bunch of young men and I kept thinking ‘who put beards on these children’.

"People on the DreamSMP care too much about the discs!" is actually a statistical error
Dream, who exiled and manipulated Tommy and pretended to be a friend and ally to Tubbo for months (canonically), pushed away his friends in the pursuit of power, tried to kill Tubbo multiple times, and helped blow the entire country of L'manburg to bedrock, all for the discs, is a statistical outlier and should not have been counted

so far this theory looks winning boys, phil just streams hardcore and we love that for him. you go, dadza. finish your ocean monument. bless.
what if phil just leaves techno in the prison for like a month. i mean last time techno was gone for a while it was bc he straight up just wandered off into the distance and only came back in time for his birthday. what if phil is just like "ah yeah he probably got distracted" or "oh maybe the prison visit didnt go well and he went away to blow off some steam". just phil absolutely refusing to check the "techno's will" book bc techno is just gone for a while sometimes so surely this is just one of those times
and meanwhile techno is in the prison just waiting for phil to check the book like "im sure hes just busy or lost track of time" and having the time of his life with the goddamn raw potatoes for food and annoying the fuck out of dream because its the only entertainment. and dream cant even kill techno to shut him up bc techno will just beat him up back and techno is still on 3 lives so dream just has to live with techno purposefully annoying him and i think it's way funnier the longer techno is in there (and techno being in there also stopped that gross c!dream torture plot so its a win-win)

Philza rocking up at the prison alone with enough Wither skulls, soul sand, and TNT to level the entire server: "Sam, I need my emotional support bestie back right now or I am two seconds from going apeshit. Sam I know you have your emotional support dog. I know you understand, Sam. Sam give me back my emotional support bestie."

It's just-I'm sorry to bring up discourse again but this tommy thing makes me so mad.
Twitter stans are obsessed with looking like activists yet instead of following and boosting actual activists they're trying to turn untrained entertainers into activists as if that wouldn't go wrong in the slightest. I really want a twitter stan to explain to me how any of this will liberate me.
If you want a poltical streamer go find their streams and boost them instead of mcyts. Most activists are flat broke because "woke" people would rather spam carrds under a cc's posts than financially support someone doing actual liberation work. If you really wanna feel like you're doing work, stop buying mcyt merch, subbing to them on twitch or donating to them. Use that money for charities, use it to financially support a struggling activist, donate to a politician who supports what you support. Why don't yall ever send real activists to steamers so they can boost them instead? These things matter so much more than cancelling a content creator or bullying them into becoming an "activist".
Tommy will never be an activist. Neither will Ranboo, Tubbo, Dream, Wilbur, Philza or any other streamer/ytber. They do not have the education nor do they have the full understanding of what you're asking them to do. These people are entertainers, do you know what an entertainer should be doing?
Providing a safe space for minorities. Treating us like normal people, defending us from hateful people in their community. I don't need apologies for things they've done over 3 years ago. That's lip service. I need actions. I need to see that they've made a welcoming space for all to enjoy their content. That is the only thing we should ever be asking for from entertainers. Especially those too young to properly analyze and engage with political material.
I also want to say that twitter fosters an unhealthy mindset surrounding activism in general. People seem to think that you must be talking about and thinking about horrific events around the world 24/7 but I have not yet seen any positive effects that come from this behavior. A horrific thing will happen, everyone will trend it, bully as many people as they can into talking about it and then it will be forgotten within weeks and nothing will have changed. If something does happen, it's such a small inconsequential thing that it doesn't matter in the long run. This is exactly what happened last summer.
That is all to say that it doesn't even work. Twitter made Tommy get really anxious and it did nothing. They've caused all this pain but I cannot think of any positive effects that made it worth it.
Anyway I think that's the last last discourse post I'm making for a while. The other one was supposed to be my last one but this situation has been so frustrating. I wanna focus on my cute aus & animatics instead akdkfkkf

people keep passing around controversies about dream that are either completely fabricated or intentionally misleading without fact checking because they want to bully people for liking minecraft streamers again and they only know how to get away with that by finding a way to make it look morally justifiable
that’s why it leans so heavily into prejudices about Gamer Men that have nothing to do with dream or the content he produces (you’re already primed to have negative associations because of other Real controversies that’ve come out in the past few years), and what people actually Do with these controversies (trying to dox a 21 year old and being openly fatphobic when someone produces a picture of a fat man and calls him dream with zero evidence, for instance)
the fact that people keep piling on more and more openly fake accusations serves to exhaust people (if you keep seeing the same things being said about the same person you’re more likely to pass it around without checking in case it Might be true this time). And to make him seem guilty by association, because if people keep Saying that he’s bad then surely there must be a reason for it right?
it’s actually really uncomfortable to see people joyously dogpiling on creators in their early 20s and late teens and trying to publicly pick them apart at any opportunity to the point that they’ll pass around any accusation whatsoever. and the fact that well meaning people don’t realize that that’s what’s happening means that this behavior is being enabled and spread.

Artists always draw Technoblade as this hulking monster, or at least a normal dude. But in actuality Technoblade is the only member of DSMP that doesn't use shields (both out of habit and out of flex), and this leads to him being by far the most mobile and actively moving player when it comes to fighting, as he has to rely on positioning and dodging to avoid damage, instead of tanking it. Look at any of his fights, he is constantly strafing and moving around, while his opponent just stand there, shields up.
So, what I am trying to say is that maybe Techno isn't a massive, broad-shouldered behemoth, but instead is a master Yoda shaped mf-er, constantly zipping around the place.

I'm so sick and tired of the narrative around c!Niki and c!Wilbur since he's come back and it honestly makes me sick to my stomach.
Niki is allowed to be angry and hurt. That doesn't mean she is justified misdirecting that and she definitely isn't virtuous for it nor is it a "girlboss moment". It hurts them both.
And Wilbur didn't leave or betray her. He killed himself. He committed suicide. That's not a betrayal. That doesn't make him a terrible person. That's tragic. And yes, Niki still can feel like that, but that doesn't make her right. It's called an unreliable narrator. Wilbur wasn't "a villain finally slain", he was a desperate man who lost everything and then killed himself. That's it. It's not funny to joke about that.
Making jokes about how the man who was actively suicidal and went through with it should "go back" or get punched/hurt for it is honestly fucking disgusting. It's horrifying.
I'm honestly asking you what you think that would solve? It wouldn't make Niki feel better. It would actively make Wilbur feel worse. What does it solve? Catharsis isn't punching a man for his own suicide. That's fucked up.
If you've been making these please consider there are mentally ill people on this site. And they aren't stupid. They can tell the implications behind your "jokes".
There are mentally ill and suicidal people on this site that see your posts and I can tell you it actively harms them. It makes them feel like shit. It scares them. It makes them feel disgusted with, and ashamed of themselves. It makes them feel like bad people.
And I'm not going to sugarcoat this because when you are dealing with these topics you have to think before you make a joke because for some people it isn't just a "joke". Some people live with these feeling every day. Many come here to cope and have a space that makes them happy. And they see a character many find comfort in and can relate to, for him be villainized and hated and people saying it would be better if he stayed dead. They see people blaming him and hating him and calling him terrible for his own suffering having hurt other people on his way down, while his literal suicide gets ignored. They see them tell him he should die again. I don't think I have to say what that does to someone, especially when you are suffering the same thing.
If your post sends that message, if your funny haha joke makes mentally ill people feel selfish and like shit maybe it isn't funny and you shouldn't make it. The narrative won't be moral for you, it's filled with unreliable narrators, but that doesn't absolve you of dealing with topics sensibly. It doesn't absolve you of thinking before you make things that can harm people. And for gods sake, I don't care how much you hate c!Wilbur, I don't, hate him to your hearts content, but do it somewhere where you're not hurting a broad range of people. Actually think about the implications before you post.

I just realized, Techno’s Syndicate codename is Protesilaus who willingly stepped on Trojan soil first, knowing he’d die. Techno willingly walked into the prison despite being fully aware of the fact that it was a trap.

did dream underpay and rush the animators of his “mask” music video?
short answer: no, quite the opposite actually
long answer: after seeing that post make its rounds yesterday, i posted on reddit detailing my attempt to get in contact with the production lead, phyre, to have her fact-check the screenshots from that post. we talked, she answered all my questions and pretty much debunked the claim that they’re only being given “$250 total” for their work. case closed.
and then dream himself came swinging from behind with a proverbial metal folding chair :P
he left an essay in the comments of my post, complete with citations! for those of you unfamiliar with reddit, here is his post + the screenshots of his discord convos that he linked
the narrative that dream is taking advantage of his young fans and exploiting them for cheap/free labor is false, and in fact, he paid them 3x the final amount. once the original deadline was missed, he didn’t rush them further and gave them extra time. this can all be corroborated by phyre herself on twitter.
