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.

Most ships that originate from RPs make me cringe. Especially from the formspring RPs, because they're the most likely to be horrendously OOC.

Actually, you know what? Pretty much any fanon from formspring RPs, I dislike. There was some good stuff over there, but it wasn't the stuff that people latched onto.

...I guess it's because he's STRONG and Eridan is generally pretty scrawny, per fanon? Not that that makes it any less OOC.

Well RP is different than regular ficcing.

but yes the ships and fanon is often bad if not terrible.

I know that, but it doesn't mean the streams don't cross. I've seen a few instances of RPers and their fans trying to get ficcers to write about the characters as they are on formspring (read: ooc).

It's really weird! If people can overlook that Equius is too STRONG to dom people without hurting them, overlooking Eridan's scrawniness should be a piece of cake. It's already porn about caste superiority, making sea trolls stronger than normal ones isn't a big leap.

Ooh yeah, those have been just embarrassing.

Even if the relationship was RPed great, it's usually the end result of a lot of nonsense events going on that the characters dealt with. You can't just write a fanfic of them together without that background, and the background doesn't make any sense outside of RP.

I wouldn't mind some RP-based fanfic but it needs to be based on the RP character in particular. And in most cases written by the player, not dropped here as a prompt or something. Some of the OOC characters are really fun, but they're not the same thing as the IC baseline a writer starts a fic with.

The fact the ancestors all seem to be practically copies of the trolls is weird, since they should have all contributed to a slurry and produced weird combos. So I was thinking, what if the troll kids aren't mixes but direct clones?

It'd be ironic that the species with no incest taboo because they're all related via incestuous slurry were actually not related to each other at all.

...yes. that would be hilarious. and it also seems to be the case, since i can't think of why they'd be so similar -- unless the crossing over or recombination that occurred in the slurry was really minimal and only affected non-coding dna regions or small things that we can't see, like which knuckles of their hands have hair on them (THERE ARE FOUR SEPARATE GENES THAT CODE FOR THIS IN HUMANS JFC) or things to do with face structure. their faces have been obscured by magical darkness so far, so it could be possible!! mindfang could have the face of eridan, for all we know. oh my god that's terrifying

also i misread this horribly the first time and nearly went off on a long rant about how i interpret meiosis and the formation of zygotes (they are haploid ftr) in trolls as a possible spin on this. that would have been terribly boring on top of being completely off topic, so i'm glad that one got averted by some last-minute close reading

To be fair, heterosexuality is much more common than homosexuality in most species on Earth. It's probably not a matter of homophobia, but rather the same reason why most doors are made for right-handed people.

And personally I am neutral whether or not kissmestude is possible among Dersites. On one hand JN/BQ is a "dead ringer" for it, on the other hand "dead ringer" means almost but not quite. And then there's SM/SS which may have evolved into a true grudge with real issues being dished out rather than hating sexually. Rivalries come in a spectrum of flavors, some with the motive that you want to prove to the other person that you are better than them, others for survival, and others like two countries competing for territorial dominance.

You don't think saying the entire species is straight is the slightest bit homophobic? Or that a lot of people make a big deal of EW GAY but don't yell at all over het? Being disgusted by homosexuality certainly isn't common in most species on earth :/

Dead ringer means looks exactly like, not almost. But I don't really care if people write it as literally kismesistude with them fucking, because some people don't even think carapaces can have sex, as long as it's a relationship like it. Just because there could be a lot of different ways to have a rivalry doesn't matter at all. The rivalry they have in the comic works like that, not fighting for survival or whatever, and it's annoying people like to make the characters OOC and avoid it instead.

Someone said the whole species is straight? What? I thought it was about how most pairings are straight. I've seen a lot of DroogxSlick, WQxPM fanart and fics.

Keep in mind that even the trolls have trouble distinguishing kismestude with a real concerned, hate. This was something hilariously illustrated when Karkat spoke to past Eridan after present Eridan killed Kanaya and Feferi. I prefer to keep such a thing as open territory, not strictly something that must be declared canon especailly when it comes to Snowman and Slick. I've also spoken to people who kinda feel uncomfortable about the ship due to some "domestic abuse"-like undertones between them. I'm not sure about that but everyone has a different idea of what can be strictly canon and what is headcanon; especailly when we are talking about characters that have relatively little screentime.

Personally I approach it as BQ getting a huge kick out of Jack's misery, while Jack tries to be passive aggressive at most. Snowman still gets a huge kick out of Jack's misery but now she really has motive to make his life hell, and Jack also has reason to be pissed off as well.

Now that I typed that it does sound like something out of a fucked up domestic abuse case, or maybe not. I don't know.

I just cannot see the carapaces of being capable of reproduction. I can see why other people think that, and "it's their job to repopulate the planet" is good reasoning, but for some reason the idea just does not click in my head.

On the other hand, I've always imagined that they're capable of sex and have the proper equipment for it. I'm well aware that this doesn't entirely make sense. I do tend to think it has more to do with body heat than anything else, though; I also tend to headcanon that carapaces are wicked weak to both intense heat and intense cold.

I'm also bugged whenever I see artists draw a carapace with nipples or external genitalia. It's just... THAT IS NOT HOW SHELLS WORK. I'll never say anything about it elsewhere because it's not a big deal, really, but... it's a carapace. They're probably all about as well-defined as mannequins and if the guys have cocks, they're not going to be shelled cocks because dammit biology would never work that way. I tend to imagine that both sexes have cloacas, and that both female Dersites and female Prospitians don't really have well-defined breasts--that they all tend to small except for their respective Queens, with maybe the occasional exception.

I also have headcanon for some of the Felt, which... is ridiculous, since they're the Felt and they're barely even minor characters. Most of it is minor, like that Die has at least minor issues about being touched and Crowbar gets fairly chronic headaches from basically having to babysit everybody and that Itchy is claustrophobic. Some of it's a bit more major--I tend to think of Doze as Itchy's older brother, for some reason, and I have some fairly strong headcanon on Clover. (I can never understand him being portrayed as sweet or kid-like, at least in more than appearance, for one; I'm also fairly sure he... might not be a sociopath but he probably has the emotional maturity and social development of a little brat. At least a bit of a stoolie and a conniving sonuvabitch, though.)

This was much longer than it needed to be. :|a

Unless you're a fan of xeno, then you're probably going to draw characters with human-like genitals/secondary sex characteristics. Just because it makes more sense biologically doesn't mean it makes it sexy, which is what most people are aiming for when they draw porn.

Hello anons! The second part of the prompt meme is nearing 1000 comments, which is where I cut off the first part. I think there are many more prompts than fills this time. Should I cut it again? THIS meme is also getting pretty bloated, would you like for me to lock this and make a new post?

Also, I haven't been on LJ as much as I used to be. At all. Is there anyone on here who would volunteer to co-mod? You don't need an LJ account yourself, but I'd like to know who you are so I know for sure if I can trust you with the password. Your first task would be to help me sort out all these prompts for the master list, probably.

Do you mean prompt meme or anon meme or both?

Since anon memes are disorganized as hell to begin with I don't think shutting this down before it hits the max will do much good, but if I am going to do master lists of the prompts then I think it would be easier for me if the prompt meme were divided into smaller chunks. But it depends on what the citizens want, really.

at first i misread this horribly and thought you were saying that you were going to lock the second prompt meme and i was all ready to be like NOOOOO WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT!!!! but i am glad this is not the case

i think you should let this post stay as-is, since it moves so slowly. as for the prompt meme, i don't have an opinion either way, now that i've read the original comment properly.

and as for co-modding well lol i am so unknown in this fandom that yeah, you'd have no reason to trust me. but i hope you find someone reliable soon! (:

Having the cut off at 1000 leaves WAY too much room for a prompt meme. It'll never come close to reaching 10000, especially considering how most of the traffic is going to the kink meme now. :\

I dunno about that. I mean, I'm not a huge fan of xeno, I just... apparently don't mind it? (Since I'm into porn of aliens that look like chess pieces and... whatever the hell the Felt are, seriously.) I tend to give 'em human-like genitals, just small breasts (for the most part)/no nipples/cloacae protecting their genitals, etc. And it mostly confuses me because I don't find "dicks with shells and ridges" to be any more human-like than "dicks behind basically a sheathe."

As I said, it's not a big deal, though. I can see why the "ridges" thing has sex appeal, definitely, and it doesn't bother-bother me or enrage me or anything? It just bugs me and I see it all over the place, so I thought I'd bring it up as a pet peeve. Because it's probably my biggest pet peeve, which is pretty damn nice actually because it's not all that big. |D

Now it seems carapaces do have children and sex. My headcanon is that if a carapace doesn't have a tattoo on it's wrist then it was conceived and born naturally. So far this is only royalty and possibly Ms. Paint.

I agree with the cloaca thing, just because you don't see Jack Noir's junk doesn't mean isn't there.

I agree with other anons about waiting until 5000 to close the prompt meme.

Personally, I'd just let the anon meme run until it hits the comment limit. It moves slowly enough that it's not hard to look over what topics have come up recently, and it's not like it needs space left open the way prompt memes do for fills.

i concur absolutely. considering how many people seem to be into it, especially of late, everyone seems to be out of the loop with each other in a big way.

i guess it might be because a lot of fans aren't actually lj members but still surf around on this meme and the kink meme, maybe?? idk.

Could there be a post for whoever archives the AO3 anon fills? Because I post my fills to AO3 under my username (if I don't hate them), and I just realized one of them was posted twice.

I realize that whoever runs the collection must have had a comment for opt-out, and I missed it. I think.
