I’ve found that I just can’t be in fandoms, the older I get.

I want to say it’s because fandoms in general are full of stupid, annoying teenagers, but that’s not the reason. Some of my best friends are stupid, annoying teenagers.

It’s because I’ve started taking account of the things in the source material, and realizing that they’re fucked up.

But when I call out the fucked up things, I’m “hating on the material” and “not being a real fan” and that, in itself, is the big reason I can’t be in fandoms anymore.

so i finished watching Heathers: The Musical just a bit ago and i fucking loved it

but

i am SOOO terrified that it’s gonna be like Tate Langdon in American Horror Story all over again with little love-struck babies running around and swooning and romanticizing J.D. like,

"oh he’s so tragic and sweet! i wish i had a boyfriend like that! so dreamy! omgosh!"

please. no. just don’t.

J.D. and Tate are literally both mentally unstable and basically psychopaths

Victoria and Violet both left their respective boyfriends because they saw that, even though they were in love, they were in severely toxic relationships

please love yourselves. don’t romanticize toxic relationships.

this has been a psa from your friendly neighborhood shark

Loving yourself and protecting your own interests when you feel like a partner might be a danger to your well-being is more important than any kind of love you might be getting from that partner.

Have a support system that doesn’t encourage you to stay with a toxic partner, and listen when someone close to you points out problematic things about your partner, even if you don’t like to hear them.

Look after your own heart, don’t try to fix theirs.

I think I’m gonna save my money and just go see Elle.

She’s such a cheap friend to hang with, all I have to do is bring over a $5 pizza.

pretty much there are only four types of comic book fans here on tumblr at this point

there are comic book fans in general

there are dc fans 

there are marvel fans

and then there are the marvel fans who gotta make everything a competition but pretty much shit talks dc without even having a clue what’s going on with dc and is pretty much being an ignorant shit just to make marvel superior

If I hadn’t just spent every moment since I woke up this morning locked in my dark room, that would be such a hell yes.

But I need to get out of my house, my parents are screaming at each other again over the mangoes in the kitchen, and I’m gonna go out of my head if I don’t leave soon.

 dad’s allergic and I think this is a form of passive aggressionbut then againmum doesn’t believe I’m allergic to pineapples so uhwho even fucking knows.

ohhhhhh! that’s why your mum wants you to marry a doctor. she doesn’t understand how medical conditions work.

You don’t need to see the first to understand the second. There’s no repeating characters. Also, the gore is really actually very minimal.

Still don’t wanna go alone…

I’m gonna pitch out a mass texts to see if any of my locals aren’t big wimps.

we could be big nerds, find it online and watch it together over facetime or skype

Um.

You’re marrying the only daughter of the youngest of nine kids, who married a Jewish woman. My dad’s side is 90% farmers, my mum’s side is riddled with people who’ve been in jail for various drug-related reasons and dead people.

I promise, the only family member you ever have to spend any sort of quality time with is my grammy, though, because she’s really interested in the people I date.

I am equally sorry.

I love grandmas. Even when my uncle/dad’s bible-thumping, rapture-fearing mother was alive, she was still good for a laugh at her expense.

Luckily, we don’t really HAVE to deal with much of my family really, cause my household doesn’t even do so.
My mum though, and every one of my friends can even vouch for this, is really… Silently judgmental. Every time I bring someone over, after they leave, she’s like “so. who was that?” “s’my friend, mum…?” “oh.”

But she knows you and likes you. So I don’t think you’ll have to deal with that?

I remember you telling me about how she was really starry-eyed and complimentary and I was like

wait

over me?

My mum, on the other hand, is…well she made a big fuss when I started openly using your preferred pronouns after you officially started to transition. Before, I’d mostly been non-specific. “Wait, I thought Ren was a girl?” “No mum, you heard wrong.” “Are you sure because I could have sworn…” “No mum.” “But are you SURE?” “I’M SURE.” Mum’s a jerk.

My dad thinks you’re cool, though.
