Well, tumblr, it’s been fun.
But I no longer have any interest in GOT/ASOIAF/tumblr/this fandom.
You can always find me trolling on ONTD.
I hate myself sometimes…
Let us review the thought process that just led me to google image searching ‘prolapsed uterus’.
1.) Reading ONTD post about Michelle Dugger’s miscarriage.
2.) Someone mentions her uterus falling out multiple times.
3.) People are grossed out.
4.) People want to know more.
5.) People are told about prolapsed uteri.
6.) People are also told not to look up prolapsed uterus in google images.
7.) I read and process all of this.
8.) I go to google images.
9.) I type in ‘prolapsed uterus’.
10.) I am simultaneously horrified and fascinated.
11.) I close the tab.
12.) I look at my life, I look at my choices.
Anonymous asked: I recently just finished ADWD and am new to the online community of asoiaf. I've found the tower of the hand, r/ game of thrones, and this tumblr page. Where else can I travel to find fellow fan-people? (this page is a amazing tbh)
Well I personally adore/love/live over at ONTD and ONTD_ASOIAF but it’s not for everyone lol. A lot of the ideas for my posts come from there. But we like obnoxious sparkle text, caps lock, and peen and er, not all book fans seem to appreciate that. However, if that sounds like your thing, come on over! Membership can be a bit tricky (you definitely need an active LJ) but the posts on ONTD are open for everyone to read (just follow the GoT tag).
And thank you, tbh!
WESTEROS.ORG ATTEMPTS TO DISCUSS ‘FANGIRLING’, LULZ ENSUE.
IN A RECENT THREAD, WESTEROS.ORG DECIDED TO DISCUSS SEX IN THE SERIES AND OF COURSE THIS BROUGHT UP THE TOPIC OF ‘FANGIRLS’, BECAUSE NAKED MEN AND SEX IS ALL WE CARE ABOUT.
#1: I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT PEOPLE SERIOUSLY THINK THAT HORDES OF WOMEN OVER AT ONTD WILL SUDDENLY ABANDON GOT JUST BECAUSE THERE ISN’T ENOUGH ‘ROMANCE’. THE LACK OF ROMANCE HAS BEEN APPARENT FROM THE START, HENCE THE CRACK!SHIPS. WHICH ARE FOR FUN. I KNOW THIS IS A FOREIGN CONCEPT TO MANY ASOIAF FANS.
#2: OKAY, FIRST OFF, WE ARE NOT ‘AWARE OF AND ENJOY ‘NED STARK IS DUMB’ INTERNET MEMES’, WE CREATED THEM. WE’VE CREATED THE MAJORITY OF THE GOT MEMES YOU SEE ACROSS THE INTERNET SINCE THE SHOW HAS STARTED.
NOW THAT I’VE GOTTEN THAT OUT OF THE WAY, SO. FUCKING. WHAT. IF WE SPEND THOUSANDS OF COMMENTS DISCUSSING WHO HAS BETTER ABS (JON, OBVIOUSLY) AND HOW WE WOULD LIKE TO KILL JOFFREY (A RED HOT POKER UP THE ARSE SOUNDS APPEALING). WE HAVE SEPARATE COMMUNITIES FOR BOOK DISCUSSION, AND GASP! WE SOMETIMES HAVE IN DEPTH DISCUSSIONS. BUT EVEN THEN WE TEND TO KEEP THEM LIGHT HEARTED BECAUSE WE KNOW GOT IS NOT SRS BSNS. THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE AT ONTD WHO HAVE NOT READ THE BOOKS, AND DISCUSSION OF THE BOOKS IS KEPT TO A MINIMUM TO PREVENT SPOILERS.
#3: REALLY? DID YOU JUST READ THE THREAD YOU’RE COMMENTING IN? AND YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY WE HATE WESTEROS.ORG?
#4: FIRST OFF, SHOUT OUT TO HOUSE ONTD, YA’LL ARE FLAWLESS EXCEPT FOR THE DANY STANS. SECOND, THE MAJORITY OF THE WOMEN THERE ARE NOT TEENAGE GIRLS. THE MAJORITY ARE IN COLLEGE AND HAVE LIVES OUT OF THE INTERNET. HOWEVER, ONTD IS A PLACE TO LET OUT THE SILLY AND BE COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS AND GLITTERY.
AND YAY, THEY CREDITED MY COMMENT WITH INCITING HATRED AGAINST WESTEROS.ORG ON ONTD!!! NO SHIT WE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE WAY CAT AND SANSA ARE TREATED ON THE BOARDS, SO WOULD ANYONE WITH A BASIC GRASP OF FEMINISM AND CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT.
#5: “I DON’T REALLY LOOK AT THE WORLD IN ANYWHERE CLOSE TO THE SAME WAY THEY DO, BUT I REALLY WANT TO KEEP THEM HAPPY SO WE HAVE ENOUGH VIEWERS TO GREENLIGHT SEASON 3.” OH, FUCK OFF. MOST OF US ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO SEASON 3 AND NOT BECAUSE OF THE ROMANCE.
UM, WE’RE NOT TAKING ANYTHING AWAY FROM YOU IF YOU HAVE LEGITIMATE REASONS FOR HATING CAT. BUT IF IT’S SOME MANSPLAINING BULLSHIT THEN EXPECT YOUR ASS TO GET CALLED OUT.
#6: I WANT TO REITERATE THAT THE ‘FANGIRLS’ ON ONTD ARE NOT 14-15 AND WE DON’T CRY OURSELVES TO SLEEP BECAUSE THINGS DON’T WORK OUT THE WAY WE LIKE. JESUS CHRIST.
#7: I LIKE THIS PERSON.
I DON’T REALLY CARE IF THIS IS COHERENT OR NOT. I KNOW THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE HERE ON TUMBLR WHO COULD WRITE ABOUT ALL THE PROBLEMS IN THIS THREAD IN MUCH MORE DETAIL AND FAR MORE ELOQUENTLY THAN I.
THAT’S NOT WHAT THIS TUMBLR IS FOR. IT IS FOR CRACK AND SILLYNESS AND CAPSLOCK. I ASSUME THE PEOPLE FOLLOWING FEEL THE SAME WAY.
TO SUMMARIZE: SUCK OUR DICKS, WESTEROS.
