What's going to happen if we win the final round?

sinyhale answered:

We celebrate the fact that we’re part of an amazing fandom that is still strong and capable and here for their ship no matter what happens. Canon hasn’t given us a proper realistic Sterek scene since 3x11, that was 21 episodes ago. I speak for myself here, but it’s getting really hard for me to be inspired to do something Stereky, something different, something that excites me. Seeing this amazing fandom come up with new fanart, new ficlets, new gifsets, new graphics, in such a short period of time, because of a poll, is refreshing AND inspiring.

We celebrate the fact that even among negativity we can still get all together as a pack and accomplish something for us, us only. If you had told me a few weeks ago that Sterek would be on the last round of Slash Madness, I would have told you that the way fandom is feeling right now, tired and ignored, there would be no way of winning any poll at all. I was already surprised and extremely happy that fandom actually voted for the Sterek Campaign. Sterek went from being a good thing to something that you can’t even mention at the moment to anyone but fellow shippers (and even then…). Media will twist your words and make you look like a pervert because all you want to see is two guys having sex; the PR and some of the cast have decided to ignore this large part of their fandom like we’re the new plague; your fellow fans of the same show will disrespect your ship even if you respect theirs and twist their noses if you so much admit that you ship Sterek and miss them, even if you’ve been mutual followers for over a year.

We take the prize of knowing that we’re here for each other and we don’t need anyone else’s support. Sterek was once described as a phenomenon, something that wouldn’t last long, something that no one could imagine it would bring so many passionate shippers together. It was encouraged by everyone and their mothers, because it was fun, because it was bringing new fans to the show, because it was everywhere. Sterek stopped being a phenomenon a long time ago. The lack of scenes, the negativity by the media, the disrespect and indifference (even erasure) from TW, and the hate inside the fandom didn’t kill this phenomenon. It won’t kill this phenomenon. The way we won the last round was the proof of that. We don’t need to be encouraged by anyone to come together for what we love. We accomplish such things by ourselves because we love Sterek and that’s it. Love. We just want to love it, let us love it.

I don’t think we need to win this poll for anyone but ourselves. We don’t need any reason besides making ourselves happy about something we love so much. Nothing will happen if we win this poll, besides having that joy and shouting to everyone “I ship Sterek. I love Sterek. I will not stop shipping Sterek. Deal with it.

Thank you for your words !

I didn’t even have to guess what today’s sketch dailies topic would be. So here’s my tribute I drew for a man who was so full of laughter and love. I really did cry over his loss. Aladdin was one of the films I knew him best for since I grew up with it, along with so many of his other roles. Again, RIP Robin, I’m so sorry you had so much sadness in your life, but I hope that you are in a better place, laughing like you always did for the world.

I love how Hiccup’s sword (based on the look of the metal) wouldn’t really be of good use in a fight. The metal rods don’t look thick enough to withstand an actual sword, but that’s the point. Hiccup’s sword isn’t meant for fighting, it’s meant for connecting with dragons, it’s meant for to soothe, not to fight or harm…

It’s a pacifistic sword for a pacifistic hero.
