Frontline - ‘Generation Like’: “What happens when the traditional teenage quest for identity and connection occurs online?”

"Right now, there are almost 666 Sleepy Hollow fics on AO3. And they’re mostly Gen. There are more Gen fics than any single ship. And I think that that is interesting because it shows that a show can have a very vibrant fandom - I mean there’s a lot of fic, there’s a lot of art, there’s a lot of vids. There’s only been one season of the show so far. And there’s no one overwhelming “O-M-G FLAIL” ship."

— Guest host Heidi on our cross-fandom episode! Here she sheds some light on how a fandom can thrive despite not having a large shipping community. (Not Another Teen Wolf Podcast Episode #57 – Fandom is my Fandom)

the fluff part of Xmen: Days of Future Past

Look, this is getting ridiculous.

Patrick Stewart has not a single no-homo to give. “I should be so lucky,” he seems to say.

I wish we all could be like this.

I. Adore. These. Two.

dear god, the friendship between thise two

I would like to thank the universe for getting me into the theater to see this. I FEEL LIKE I’VE BEEN PART OF A MAJOR CULTURAL PHENOMENON ON MULTIPLE LEVELS. MAY WE ALL ASPIRE TO THIS LEVEL OF PROFOUND EMOTIONAL FULFILLMENT, YEA VERILY, AMEN.


Only on Coney Island!

In case you are a fan of same sex unions, weddings in general, or are just really itching to know what I look like (or my wife, as I haven’t posted a picture of her yet [she’s the adorable one in the suspenders]) here’s the promised wedding picture spam.

Best day of my life. 

Okay, but see here’s the thing. I want all of you to understand this thing:

I posted these wedding photos because this was the most amazing day of my life. I’ve been married for about two months, and goddammit, it has been just the best, you know? Like, this woman, in these photographs? She’s incredible. She’s unreal. She’s kind and she’s thoughtful and she’s everything I never thought I deserved. She’s the woman who I get to spend the rest of my ridiculously lucky life with.

It’s so simple to me, to us.

But it’s so complicated to so much of the world. She and I can’t walk into the grocery store holding hands. I get tight-lipped when someone compliments my ring at work because I can’t determine if they are going to be “cool” with it or not. If they’ll report me for being “inappropriate” in our online survey. Again. My wife was fired from a job as a driver for a children’s occupational therapist because her boss saw us kiss at the mall— because she couldn’t have “that kind of person” around children. I walked myself down the aisle at my wedding because a church told my parents that it wasn’t possible for them to attend my wedding.

And we’ve had it so easy! Our lives have been blissfully carefree compared to so many. We have the most amazing friends and family and life is pretty fucking sweet.

But here’s the thing I wanted to tell you. This post I made, to try to just share my little square of happiness with my little square of the internet, has literally tens of thousands of notes. Tens of thousands. I’ve gained hundreds of followers and my inbox runneth over. And not a single message I’ve received, not a single reblog that I have been able to find, has had anything to say but amazing, beautiful, kind words of congratulations. No bullying. No trolling. No inappropriate offers or lewd remarks. Out of tens of thousands.

That’s not something I’m used to. It’s not something anyone in the LGBTQ community is used to.

Do you even get how amazing you are? You, the denizens of Tumblr. Do you understand that? I am so exceedingly proud of you, you wacky kids. You are all such incredible people, with such kind and open hearts, and I wish I could hug each and every one of your necks. 

So if you are having any sort of rough day, please know that there is this tiny lesbian couple in northeast America who likes you just a whole lot, okay? You’ve overwhelmed us. 

Thank you. We love you.

Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong

Did you know… Tumblr’s loading icon is known as the Knight Rider Bar?
It’s a nod to the red scanner bar on KITT, the self-aware Pontiac Trans Am from the ’80s TV show. You’ll find it in the Dashboard HTML source code as “Knight-Rider-bar.”
