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.

I'd say it's better to just go wild and make stuff up. Trying not to outright contradict canon would probbly be WAY easier than building off it. And maybe by next act the current situation will be more sorted out and going in a slightly more coherent direction. I wonder if it will end up in some kind of choice/war between the game, Lord English, and the horrorterrors.

I refuse to feel sorry for people who own the lion's share of the fandom and at the same time wallow in self-pity over how they're treated by the share of fandom they alienate with their whitecock horseshit.

You don't have to feel sorry for them, just don't be an asshole. Don't bash ships just because they're more popular than yours, don't bash people for shipping them. It's not really that hard but it seems like no one gets it.

There's so many John/Karkat shippers that they could easily stay in the center of that section of fandom and never even see any disagreement, while the rest of us have to see it everywhere anyway.

It's hard, getting all the fic and attention. It's hard and nobody understands.

right, because people shipping things you don't ship is exactly the same as people saying you're dumb for shipping the stuff you ship

I like how "bashing" has now stretched to "pointing out anything negative, even if it's true".

If it's okay to talk about Vriska/Tavros OOC fluff, then why can't people point it out when the same applies to the popular slash ship.

The slashers DO erase the canon love interests, they DO erase the rest of the girls, they DO ignore the characters' personalities in favor of making them generic yaoiboys, and that IS why I can't stand the pairing. That it's popular is just icing on the cake. You can argue with me about if I'm wrong about John/Karkat being like that, but ordering people not to say it at all because it's ~ship bashing~ is idiotic.

Oh please. If your ship has issues and people call that out, crying about how they're jerks calling you names is childish. Either they're wrong and you deal with it like an adult, or they're right and you change your mind.

In terms of things that are fucking annoying, filling fandom with sexist/OOC/boring fic >>>> a random person says you're dumb.

Calling a pairing 'whitecock horseshit' is when it turns into bashing. Especially when, according to an above thread, all the males are apparently coded as white so if you ship slash you're automatically shipping whitecock.

I never understood the argument of erasing canon love interests. Fic doesn't have to be canon, you don't have to go into why Karkat's not with Terezi in a slash fic anymore than you have to go into why Terezi's not with Karkat in a femslash fic. Their canon love interest is not the point of the story.

Erasing girls can definitely be a problem in a plot fic, though. I've stopped reading a few otherwise decent fics because the girls just never seemed to be mentioned even when it makes perfect sense for them to be. In a slash porn fic, though, it's understandable. You're not writing about the girls then, you're writing about two guys fucking.

Point out the issues in a ship all you want, just don't be a jerk about it. Don't insult the whole ship and don't insult the people that like it. It's not that hard.

As the other thread explained, white cock is a standard term. It means doing EITHER. It's really telling that what you're choosing to focus on here is "but people can't write about nonwhite guys" when what everyone was talking about was THE FEMALE CHARACTERS, NOT WRITING ABOUT A DIFFERENT TYPE OF GUY.

You're not writing about the girls then, you're writing about two guys fucking.

See, I would actually be totally fine if this was restricted to PWP fic. If ladies want to write about boys fucking, then go for it. But most of the slash is not PWP. It is just boys. All boys, all the time. There is a fuckton of John/Karkat out there that has no fucking in it.

It doesn't necessarily have to be PWP though. Most of the fic I've read that doesn't bring in any of the girls is either 1. the mentioned PWP 2. a short shippy moment between guys or 3. a plot that only requires a few characters. There's a few that have gone on and been extremely plotty that for some reason don't bring in any girls at all (I think the You Are Dave Strider series a prime example of this) but those have been in the minority in my experience.

All I was commenting on was the attitude that shipping slash in this fandom apparently equals whitecock horseshit. Not everyone is required to write about the girls, especially on the kink meme, which is where the difference between slash, femslash, and het is most pronounced. Parts of the fandom that are less about porn tend to have more a better balance between them.

3. a plot that only requires a few characters.

DING DING DING that's why we hate slashers so much, because those "few characters" are FUCKING NEVER GIRLS. It adds up, okay? It isn't by sheer coincidence that the few characters chosen for the plot are always the popular whitecock ship.
