Anonymous said: I can't believe this shit is still happening in all fandoms. Like, when will people ever learn that this is not acceptable? I know the author of the third fanfic and she's in my Camp NaNo cabin right now and I just wanna hug her but then again I'm too scared to speak to her about it. I don't know what to do. I'm just really mad at all those ppl who think that this is fun. Because it's not.

felicitysmock:

honestly, i don’t imagine these authors gave their permission for clevver tv to do this (if they did, i wonder if it was specifically clarified this was how the cast would be reacting and therefore, like, if they knew what they were getting themselves into, i imagine they DIDN’T, but if they did ignore this next part)

to take someone’s fanfiction, that they’ve put love and energy and planning into, and not just plaster it as an example of “mocking fandom for their trivial attempts to keep up with the show with their writing” but also make specifically clear you’re belittling their work is the LOWEST, the very LOWEST shit you can do. whoever planned it is scum, and the fact that the cast and Jeff went along with it makes me very sad because i imagine getting caught up in the moment is one thing, but they know better by now, and Jeff Davis is a trashcan for encouraging it.

if any of the authors want support or to talk like, i’m here, you have people you can trust, and i’m super sorry this happened, that this was allowed to take place on what should have been an exciting day at a convention for fans.

My balls are pretty big. There’s a confidence that my sisters and I were raised with. After my dad died, my mom moved us from Queens back to the Dominican Republic. A very macho sort of place. But my mom raised us to know that we are equal to anyone. Whenever we went out, if we were meeting other people, my mom would always say, “I hope you like them.” Not “I hope they like you.” We were the most important.

margery-tyrell:

Something really amazing. Okay i’m gonna try to be calm about that.

So at the beginning of April I sent Natalie a letter asking for an autograph and just thanked for everything she did to me, you know she helped me through a lot of stuff like not on purpose but at this time she was basically the light of my life so to speak, and I told her that she did a great job by portraying all these different characters and so on, like a normal letter from a fan in my opinion. But probably not in hers.
And today I got this envelope. I didn’t really expect that she would answer but she did. Not only got I two autographs no I also got a letter, a freaking 5 pages long letter in her beautiful handwriting. 
She told me that she never did that before, answering a fan and she was just so sweet???? And she called me sweetheart. I’m Natalie Dormer’s sweetheart ahhhh what is happening.
So that’s something she wrote:

So yeah, that’s the reason why Natalie Dormer is a perfect human being and if you don’t agree you’re wrong. Sorry not sorry.
