Things I have learned about Fandom.
Tips for beginners.
I鈥檓 staring down my 9-year anniversary here on Tumblr, and I thought I鈥檇 share some thoughts from that perspective. I discovered fandom (and Tumblr) when I was 41, so I鈥檝e obviously never been a teenager online, but I think these are pretty universal for newcomers of any age.
Pick a name that doesn鈥檛 reflect your current fandom, because the odds that you will move on in 1 or 5 or 10 years are very high, and changing your url often means that your old friends don鈥檛 recognize you anymore.
Keep your friends! Your current fandom friends are going to migrate to different fandoms than you will. You will generally not be able to convince them to love your Next Hyperfixation. Learn to enjoy the eclectic oddness that your dash will eventually become.
Don鈥檛 be afraid to move on. Fandom is Brownian Motion. You will drift from one space to another as the spirit moves you. It鈥檚 okay. In the beginning, it can feel like a betrayal to leave a fandom, to start reblogging things your current friends aren鈥檛 in to, to lose interest in their meta/writing/art, to change the feel of your dash. It鈥檚 okay! Everyone does it, although some take months and others take years. Just let them know that your hyperfixation has changed, but your heart and friendship have not. It鈥檚 that simple.
Be Kind. To everyone. You have no idea what they鈥檙e going through or who they are. Try to not say anything to others that you wouldn鈥檛 want aimed at yourself. (You鈥檙e going to fuck this up. Everyone does. Give yourself some slack and remember to absorb the lesson, if there鈥檚 one to be learned.)
You are going to stumble. Especially in today鈥檚 hypercritical climate. You are going to say something that starts a fire. Just say sorry (if it鈥檚 warranted) and move on. Delete that post and take a break for a couple of weeks if it gets too hot. LEARN from it, but don鈥檛 fixate on it. Make liberal use of tumblr鈥檚 Block feature.
Learn to recognize wank (鈥渄iscourse鈥). Know that if you jump in with your opinion, you will very likely become some rabid person鈥檚 target. So make that choice with your eyes open. Try to avoid black-and-white thinking (we're right --> they must be demons). It's really not helpful.
Online stress is real. Online hurts are real hurts. So learn how to protect yourself. Curate your dash, block people and tags. Learn to recognize when tumblr thoughts follow you into your real life and affect your happiness. When that happens, take a break. Change the makeup of your dash.
Don鈥檛 make assumptions. Your friend might be older or younger than you, might be from an entirely different culture. It鈥檚 easy to assume everyone on the other side of your keyboard is a mirror image of you, with similar experiences. They very likely are not, so always tread lightly.
Guard your personal information. No one needs to know your real name! And probably, they don鈥檛 need to know your age, either. Especially if you鈥檙e young. You are your url, and in a fandom community, that is enough.
Being part of a fandom community takes time and effort. You make friends by commenting, reblogging, encouraging others in their writing/art/meta/whatever. If you are a creator yourself, please don鈥檛 be discouraged by a slow lift-off. That happens for everyone (except a lucky few).
It isn鈥檛 necessary to make friends with the BNFs out there: make friends with other newbies. Your shared experiences will be stronger for that!
Have fun! And if you realize it isn鈥檛 fun anymore, walk away. People take breaks from fandom all the time, and it鈥檚 still there when they return. Even if it鈥檚 been decades. 馃槈

not to be like anti-neurotypical or whatever but adhd people with hyperfixtations and autistic people with special interests are like, literally the core of any fandom. all those fics and comics and askblogs that update daily with no signs of stopping? those theory and other fandom blogs that post content so often you wonder how much free time they have? listen, it鈥檚 amazing what you can get done when it鈥檚 literally the only thing you fucking think about. appreciate your local autistic/adhd content creators.

I think it鈥檚 funny that people think Will is the one 鈥渃orrupted鈥 by his and Hannibal鈥檚 relationship--like, y鈥檃ll, this man is stone-cold he just didn鈥檛 have a reason to be before. Did y鈥檃ll watch the same show I did? He got Chilton burned alive because he knew it would make Hannibal happy and when Bedelia said聽鈥渇uck you I wanted to be Bluebeards wife鈥 he said聽鈥淚鈥檓 breaking him out and he鈥檚 going to eat you because I told him to.鈥 He was going to kill Hannibal in front of a god damned museum and he sicced almost as many killers on Hannibal as Hannibal sicced on him. I love Will with my whole heart and the biggest reason is that he鈥檚 just as much of a terrible person as Hannibal is. You can count the number of people he shows actual compassion to on two hands and 7 of those are his dogs.聽

See. They could聽have made the kissing scene more ambiguous. They could鈥檝e had Eddie not really respond until venom has mostly re-fused with him and he sees that underneath it鈥檚 Anne.
But nah.
As soon as that tongue comes out Eddie鈥檚 all over it.聽

鈥...and all you have to do is signed on the dotted line,鈥 smirked Felix.
鈥淵ou think I鈥檓 dumb enough to make a deal with the devil?鈥 Marinette snarled, crossing her arms as she glared at the floating demon.
鈥淚鈥檓 flattered you think I鈥檓 that powerful but what you believe is of little concern,鈥 he purred.聽鈥淓ither way, your soul belongs to me now, all thanks to that little liar who so easily traded her soul for yours. So, since your soul is forfeited to me, why not take advantage of this opportunity while you can? Three wishes. Anything your heart desires. Fame. Love. Revenge. Nothing is off the table. All you have to do is signed...鈥
A demonic-looking feather quilled appeared in above Marinette鈥檚 head, a sickly green eye embedded in the base stared back at her. Then a parchment contract manifested as well, baring the terms and conditions of the demon鈥檚 contract. And at the bottom, taunting the pigtailed girl, was the X-marked dotted line.
鈥淪o...do we have a deal?鈥
Was inspired by @nobodyfamousposts Enemies to Lovers AU for Felix July featuring Demon Felix. Really hoping NB continues it because it is just an amazing prompt and it has such an interesting take on the Felinette pairing.
Spent the weekend doing this, kind of cheated with drawing Felix since I鈥檓 still learning how to draw guys. Overall, I鈥檓 glad with how the drawing came out.

A few weeks ago I commissioned @allarica to draw my favourite boy, Matthew, for a tapestry on the wall of my new home's bedroom. As always, she was a pleasure to work with and the result did NOT disappoint. I love this piece so much 馃槶 if you like it, please reblog it and consider supporting her next time you want a gorgeous piece of artwork! @cassandraclare
