CHAT ANONYMOUSLY ABOUT STUFF: General Anon Meme


It is what all the cool memes are doing nowadays!

The only rule is, don't be a total passive-aggressive douche. This isn't the place to spew all your vitriolic unrequited blackrom feelings for other members of of our dear fandom--or if you can't resist, at least don't mention them by name, that shit is just a little too petty. If it gets out of hand I'll ban you so fast Karkat would be impressed.

Other than that, hop to it, anons. And TITLE YOUR THREADS it could get pretty confusing all up in here if you didn't!



PS, as one kind anon pointed out, if you want to see the comments in chronological order instead of thread format, put ?view=flat after html in the URL. Or click here, whatever.

the most important topic ever

Can we talk about pairing abbreviations, guys? Since I am beginning to see them around and such.

All fandoms, if they get big enough, must eventually develop pairing shorthand~ It's an exciting time in a fandom's life, when things like collective fanon and shorthand begin to enter into the fandom consciousness! And pairing shorthand is so~ fascinating~ and there are so many different ways to do it! From initials to namesmushes to Japanese namesmushes to whatever shit goes down in Pokemon and Yugioh fandoms, every fandom has a unique way of doing things! Because every~ fandom~ is~ special~ in its own special way~~~

Ahem.

That said, can I register a vote against initialing (is J/KK Karkat/John or Karkat/Jade? YOU DON'T KNOW. YOU MAY NEVER KNOW) and for ridiculous namesmushes? I mean, think about it. Johnkat! Vantbert! Karohn. I would laugh forever. And then cry, but that's not the point.

(in all seriousness, though, we kind of have built-in pairing shorthand. trolltags, anyone?)

whatever shit goes down in Pokemon

If you copy how they do it I will kill you. I will hunt you down and tear out your heart with my bare hands.

NEVER AGAIN THE PAIRING LIST TIMES

(Can we just...not, though? AOOO doesn't lack for space and namesmushes only work even halfway properly with Japanese names.)

hahahaha I have mad pity for that entire fandom, I really don't know how you keep up with the names.

(Honestly, I would prefer not to! But I don't think that's going to happen.)

No one keeps up with the names. People know the couple of them that they care about, and the rest is just useless nonsense you filter out. It's idiotic.

(I've fought more inevitable fandom tides, this should be a walk in the park.)

I will eagerly take so-bad-they're-hilarious name portmanteaus over naming ships after condiments or dessert flavors or what the crap ever.

You know, like how Gamzee/Tavros is PB&J
or Karkat/Sollux is ketchup and mustard
or Me/Naming Ships After Condiments is bile and tears

I miss the nonsense you used to get in Harry Potter fandom

Pumpkin Pie
Fire & Ice
Leather & Libraries
Guns & Handcuffs

The Government Stole My Toad is still the best ship name ever, and I say that as someone who loaths any ship labeling form aside from Name/Name.

Okay, that last one is hilarious both because I can actually see him saying that (and the look on her face, d'aw) and because it is SO MUCH LONGER than their names, seeing as they're, you know, two letters each.

holy cats, i cannot believe that i forgot to mention this anywhere else in this thread, but what about ship labelling based on quadrants? so, like, terezi♥karkat or vriska♠eridan or nepeta♦equius? that's another system i really love, since it makes the relationship very clear and reads very elegantly (:

it gets a bit awkward trying to figure out how to label ♣ though, since there are three people involved. i go for auspitice♣other/other -- so kanaya♣vriska/tavros, for example -- but i've seen a few other things around.

so what do you guys think??

I like this. I like this a lot.

Good call with the auspitice shipping label too -- clever.

^_^ I've been doing that myself, it's a great option.

Since auspitice can be for a couple different types of relationships, I'd write it differently for different ones. auspitice♣other/other would be for stabilizing a flipflop or undefined relationship, and auspitice♣other♠other for one that's regular black. kanaya♣vriska♠tavros and kanaya♣aradia/equius. And that makes it possible to describe any unusual relationships involving ♥ or ♦ that people might write about. (jade♣karkat♦sollux?)

jade♣karkat♦sollux

Oh my God, that idea is hilarious. At the point you need a counciliatory relationship to manage your counciliatory relationship, you know you have fucked up your life beyond all recognition.
