friends turned lovers is literally my favorite trope - like, all other tropes can go home.
give me shared inside jokes that date back to wayyyyy before a first kiss was ever shared. give me living together with separate bedrooms until one of them gradually becomes…
It’s a little too vanilla for me. The problem is the characters already get along seamlessly and are always together. There’s nothing surprising about it. Good for real life, but not as interesting for me in fictional settings. Needs more spice.
Fuck your thoughts, Tumblr.
A friend gave me this picture, and it sort of reminds me of Glee-Chan’s jungle girl thing, so I’m posting it here. XD I think the jungle girl is like checking her out to make sure she’s safe or saying hi with her boobs or something, but then I don’t know why the blonde girl with the broken sword is naked too. Maybe she’s just trying to be polite and follow her customs. XDDD Or make your own story for what’s going on here.

I made sure to send her an annoyed ask this time. I’m pretty sure that came from Tumblr. I didn’t post it anywhere else.
Get a small group of insanely biased people and have them swarm like bees to beat down dissent until their view point is the only thing that remains. I think that’s how it works. I was just looking at the Holocaust deniers on YouTube attacking a video pointing out their stupidity, and it’s pretty much the same thing as some of the idiots here like the SJWs and the militant vegans. They gang up until they “win” in the comment section even though their position is absolutely absurd and beyond douchebaggy even though they claim everyone else is being unreasonable.
So with this basic template, you could take any extremist, asshole, looney tune position and force it on people as long as you have a tiny self-contained community of like minded idiots on the web with the free time, giving it more credibility than the obvious negative amount it has in the real world. It’s a distortion of reality basically. So yeah, this is the reason why taking social media and the blogosphere seriously doesn’t quite work. It is about who has the free time to be the biggest asshole and shovel dirt on top of alternate views, not how good your points are.
