So here’s a slightly expanded and better edited version of the BDSM-ariffic KO/BD flashfic I wrote last night!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY magnumformer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (blows party tooter)
I couldn’t help myself.
CW behind the readmore for explicit sexual content, consensual BDSM, safewords, aftercare, and also second-person tense, because for some reason when I write flashfic it’s always from the ‘you’ POV.
This actually scared me in the theater >_>;
This lifted my heart. Such an amazing continuation of Mega/Galvatron’s fascinating story arc in the movies.
shoutout to people working weekends and overnights and overtime, people working in hospitality and retail and food service, who are sacrificing time with their loved ones, so fuckers with weekday desk jobs get to live comfortably with the amenities we provide while simultaneously shitting all over us for not getting “real jobs”
So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.
I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film without warning of what’s in it. I’ll explain why below.
TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.
I’ve always tried to stay on the lighter side of the fandom but yeah, TF fandom can be pretty volatile. (Speaking from about 20 years of experience in it.) Hope it comes to mean something less stressful :)
Man, I don’t know whether it’s comforting or dismaying that TF fandom’s kind of always been like this, but it really has, hasn’t it?Thank you for the kind words!
Anonymous said: Wait, Starscreamian left? Is that why their blog is using the not found page like a theme? I was hoping to hear their take on Age of Extinction since it's been out. Did something happen?
It’s not really my place to talk about Theo’s experiences or why ey left Tumblr, but yeah, ey left.
Anonymous said: Oh goody, I'm glad I could cheer you up! (it's that anon again) Yeah, Tumblr TF fandom is very toxic, especially lately, it seems. It's why I don't have a blog of my own, I just know I'd keep getting into trouble, I'm angry and I have a big mouth, I'd never be able to handle the fallout. xD Stay safe and take care, nobody needs this kind of harassment, I hope starscreamian is alright, too. It's just sad, because I see the few voices of sanity disappearing one by one, people being silenced-
(character limit sucks) -I wish there’d be something one could do to create a safer space. Anyway, you are not alone. I’ve been lurking on Tumblr for more than two years, but I have social anxiety, talking to people is getting easier, though. I’m a faithful but very quiet reader of your blog (I’m secretly Soundwave, lol) and your wonderful KO fic. Right now I see a lot of good people get treated badly and I had to say /something/. The best one can do is ignore the little shitheads, I suppose-
-but it’s hard when they attack en masse like that. Heaven help you if you dare say anything about Starscream, yikes. They’re so deeply invested in their skeevy headcanons and their shallow reading of the show that they’ll attack in droves, and then claim /they’re/ being bullied, what the everloving- But now I’m spamming you, sorry. Just wanted to say you rock, too. xD
WOW sorry it took me so long to get back to this anon (I actually suffer from social anxiety too, which makes keeping up with “formal” correspondence like emails and PMs and messages exhausting and difficult).
Anyway I wanted to say thank you again, I may not have responded but I was definitely thinking about this message a lot. Thank you for your support and kind words, you’re super-awesome!
TF fandom is definitely kind of a hostile place to be, especially if you hold opinions that challenge the greater fandom zeitgeist, and right now sort of withdrawing from it all has really been the safest and best option for me. That’s why I’ve mostly just been using Tumblr lately to post my own stuff, instead of reblogging and engaging in discussion or anything. It really is criminal the way dissenting voices get shouted down and bullied into silence, though.
Anyway, nonny, thanks again for your kind messages, and if you ever want to talk privately, let me know? I’m on AIM and Skype and I’m always happy to have someone new to talk TF with!
