Holy crap ok so
Tumblr media
You're probably about to see a lot of crap going round about this because what the hell?? It's advertised on the playstore as an unofficial AO3 app with free fanfic to read and it's pretty popular
Tumblr media
I downloaded it and yeah... when they say unofficial AO3 app they really mean they've ripped a bunch of content off AO3 and it's just on there to read. Searching my AO3 handle gets me this:
Tumblr media
What the hell. That's my stuff. 144 fics to read. The stats you can see for the ones there are ripped from AO3 too. Beyond obviously, I was never contacted about having my work put up on an app I've never heard of. And what makes this better?
Tumblr media
There's an option to go Premium and even to leave a tip. They're purportedly keeping the app alive with this cash but to call a spade a spade, they're profiting off fanfic by ripping it from AO3 and asking users to pay for a premium service.
I'm furious. The reviews on this app are all talking about how useful the users did or didn't find it; no one seems concerned that the app should not exist in the first place. What the hell
As a writer I'm going to be contacting AO3 about this (though things seem to be kicking off to the point that I'm sure they already know). I'm making this post to let any users of the app know: I know having an AO3 app would be great but this is not the answer. To rip content from people on AO3 and try to profit from it is deeply not okay, and flies directly in the face of so many core elements of fandom. We are not for sale.

something about the announcer telling the audience the beatles are so excited followed by a shot of ringo stoned makes me laugh 
paul waiting for his turn with ringo’s attention so he can show him a random painting

La mayoría de la gente te ama por lo que pretendes ser. Para mantener su amor, sigues fingiendo —actuando—. Tienes que amar tu fingimiento. Es verdad, estamos encerrados en una imagen, un arco. Lo triste es que la gente se acostumbra tanto a su imagen, que crecen apegados a sus máscaras. Ellos aman sus cadenas. Se olvidan de quienes son realmente. Y si tratas de recordarles, te odian por ellos, sienten que estás tratando de robar su posesión más preciada.
Jim Morrison, «Entrevistas»

i can't i CAN'T stop thinking about how one of the first things to happen in season 12 is that dean tells his mom about how one of the first things she liked about john is that he knew the words to every zeppelin song. and then later in the same season he’s making a mixtape of his favorite zeppelin songs for cas.

the beatles moments i think about a lot 
thinking about if paul ever found out it was John who touched him and not the other dude 
when the interviewer spit on george 
the mockers and marbles interview 
“we were just trying to write songs about prostitutes and lesbians is all.”
“what kind of girl do you like?” “john’s wife.”
the whole train scene from a hard days night with the old man arguing with them 
“and the rest of you if you’ll just rattle your jewelry.”
their studio bloopers 
their last interview together from 1966 where they were all so pissy and john looked like a karen 
paul admitting to doing lsd
“JOHNNNNNN” “WHAAATTTTTTT”
george being asked if he wanted to hear led zeppelin’s first album 
“i think they look great” “well i think they look dopey”
“she's a drag. a well known drag.”
this long tall sally performance 
“shut up while he’s talking”
“we’d like to say-” “SHUT UPP!”
“of course i love him. of course i love him. i love john as i loved him. you can't change love. there’s no reason on earth why i should hate him.”
“it’s like barbara fucking walters”
that help scene where they all dressed up and looked like their older selves 
eric lennon
“knock knock” “who’s there” “john the baptist”
this paul interview where we talked about beatles songs 
when paul was sick during an interview and john was worried 
and he’s still going in 2020 :,)
this interview 
“what’s next on the agenda?” “a song.”
“where’s the bus”
“what’s the matter with you phillip it’s the last fucking verse.”
when george harrison invented reaction videos 
their iconic first press conference 
“thanks for the purple heart” “silver! silver!” 
paul talking about his best times with george 
“yoko sat in that very chair” george: imma head out now 
george harrison’s dad passed the vibe check 
aunt mimi’s interview 
that cursed shakespeare play that they did 
the beautiful ringo and george interview from the 80′s that i love with all my heart 
“that’s when you discover other things...”
pushing each other into on coming traffic lmao
this interview breaks my heart 
the in my life live performance..oh wait there never was one. and that's my villain origin story.

Y'all know that little scene in episode 5 when Mando doesn't have his right pauldron after leaving Grogu to sleep in the ship cause he probably rocked him on his shoulder?
Yeah

oh my GOD you know how eileen came back to human form in that beautiful bathtub scene ? like that’s where sam had to perform the spell ? imagine dean rescues cas from the empty, had to drag him out, and he’s powered down, stuck between awake and asleep, so when they finally get back to solid ground, cas is covered in black tar from the empty, and so dean carries cas to the bathroom, and draws hot water, and gently washes him, brushes his hair out of his eyes, and cas is awake now, but sleepy, and his eyes meet dean’s with a weary smile and dean’s palm cups his cheek and he grins like the sun back at him.
