Dear Thrawn fandom,

I’m new to you guys. I haven’t been around long. I write a dumb little fanfiction. I’m here to have fun, make friends, and reblog funny pictures of Blue Husbando.

But I have noticed drama going around in the Thrawn fandom, and it’s simply not cool. Shit like that makes me want to leave the fandom, because let’s be honest here:

I got too much shit going on in my real life to deal with fandom bullshit.

So I am reposting a blog I wrote back when Once Upon A Time was running. It’s about how ship wars are freaking dumb as hell.

This is also a blog about how to be a decent person in fandom.

Here’s an example from my post; it’s the most important point of the entire thing:

“This is the one thing that freaking blows my mind about ship wars
more than anything else! People bully and harass other fans over FICTIONAL CHARACTERS! Is it truly worth hurting another human being with feelings and emotions like you do over a television show? Are ships truly that important to you where you would hurt another person? If you answered yes, then you really need to reevaluate yourself. No
ship, character, or TV show is ever, EVER worth harming another person
either physically, verbally, or emotionally. That’s ludicrous behavior,
and it makes you the villain in that narrative.”

Enjoy. I’m gonna go back to writing Thrawn with my OC lady, Thrass with his boyfriend, Eli being a precious boi, and Cad Bane being a crappy but nice uncle to his sister’s brats because it’s fandom and I can do this shit because it’s a fictional movie, tv show, and novel at the end of the day so why the hell you hurting your fellow human being over this crap?

OOC: try roleplaying Thrawn and there will be a good reason why some RPers have problems with ships.

See, fans geek out about ships. How they are suppose to be or suppose to go — especially if already performed on TV and movies, or as written in novels. These are called “the canon”. When other fans have differences of opinion, there is conflict.

Not this RP, but another RP I was in, several RPers as women attacked my RP character in OOC but still trying to RP accuse me of actions I never took. As a male RPer, character destruction is uncool. The only way I could get out of the RP was by killing them in RP so they could respawn. When the other “object of affection” RP partner is delayed as mine was and could not RP with me at the time of my attack, SOME RPers feel license to dominate my character without plotting with me to see if that is the way my storyline is going. If you respect your RP partner and my storyline, then you would not dominate my muse.

That’s why we stopped these kinds of RPs and do more campaign launches, like this account.

As far as shipping RPs, we do pure adult level because that gets rid of the less serious RPers — we’re more Rated R now, but we switch to porn level.

It works. But we need consent at 21+ years old for all shipping RPs.

These are our rules. Anyone upset about underageism or the porn content probably should not be in our shipping real RPs.

This account is not slated for that. @thrawnbine77 is.

There is a big fucking difference between role playing with other role players and not shipping how you want and people attacking people who like or dislike a certain ship, don’t confuse the two.

BUT this does bring up a few good points!

I wrote this piece using shipping as an example, but it’s actually a piece about how to be a decent person on the internet.

If I had to rewrite it today, I would probably add in a section about communication which would also apply to RP’s.

Along with being a fanfic writer, I’m also an RPer as well. I used to RP on tumblr with Fandral blogs for Marvel. Some of the blogs were great! What made them work was we communicated constantly. If the plot didn’t go the way one of us thought and led to conflict, we would talk it out.

There were some blogs I just had to stop working with. They wouldn’t communicate. They would dominate RP’s. They wouldn’t respect my concerns or even listen to me. So I ended it and went onto other RP’s. Sometimes, they don’t work out either and it can be frustrating trying to find good partners.

Now I only RP with two close friends and it’s through skype and on the phone, but the same thing still applies:

COMMUNICATION.

It’s so important in fandom. Whether or not it’s RP, talking ships, fanart, fanfiction, etc., being able to be open minded, listening to the other person, and even saying, “I hear you and respect your opinion even if I disagree with it/I hear you and love that idea,” communication is probably one of the most important things you can do in fandom.

It’s hard to get tone and meaning across online. It’s really easy to misread a post or think it has another meaning. There’s nothing wrong with asking for clarification on points.

OOC communication is VERY important online, especially in RP, especially when some writers do not write as well as others, BTS or OOC. Nevermind about para RP. It takes lots of practice. You are right, @geekygirlexperience

I think what @geekygirlexperience speaks of is a very fair discourse and relays points we strive for as fans.

Building a roleplay THRAWN character before we knew he would return to canon was very difficult. Key quotes required adequate framing with Lucasfilm and its production in 2015 at Star Wars Celebration.

When Filoni said finding the best voice for Thrawn, which turns out to be Lars Mikkelsen . We believe it, because setting up an in character Thrawn without much to go on was tough. We picked 3 Legends novels and took off from there. When we speak to the Lucasfilm Story Group, they know it is our RP characters in Storylines under accolades.

Weve seen the shipping. While we don’t actively RP as we use to, our @getthrawnin does extremely mild stuff based on our story arcs and fanfics.

The @agentkallus77 and @generalhux77 accounts are more available for some shipping. We aren’t Kalluzebs or Kylux— were more KallusSinjir and Reyux with a BDSM harem…long story.

Hey nothing wrong with Kalluzeb or Kylux. I personally like Kylux fan art. But had more fun writing fanfics with KalluSin or whatever, and Hux seems like he’d get back at Ren by taking his woman.

Oh we full on write smut for Reylo.

And DamRey is fun, too but our writer has been busy.

Moonlit Reflections in Rapture: Isolates


“Please. Don’t leave me.”

“I will find you. I promise…Rey.”

“How did you know my name–” Rey jolts awakes in her bed in the AT-AT. She looks at the time and has time to go back to her dream, but she cannot sleep. She breathes deeply to sleep, but her desperation to return to the dream only causes her to lie awake. She tosses around, trying to remember her dream, but it decays from her mind. Frustration builds as her brow narrows. She cannot remember the images that she saw. The tastes. The touch. She cries and tastes her salty tears from the frustration of her loneliness. The place felt so real, so pleasurable and so happy. But it was a dream, she tells herself. Not real.

What kind of evidence do you suppose it’ll take to get the JCF admin to allow Reylo speculation again? I mean, come on, JJ’s commentary all but confirms it.

starwarsnonsense:

At this rate, I’d say it would take an official still with the Lucasfilm logo showing Kylo and Rey kissing with tongues.

Not enough. One of the mods must be physically present at the conceiving, birth and christening of the next Skywalker baby, or reylo doesn’t happened.

It can be done… give me movie posters sized believable manip prints and 5 t-shirts and I’ll post them in my Star Wars Celebration booth…

Same thing we did for Get Thrawn In when Dave Filoni saw it…

Doesn’t matter what haters say. We have a pre-select shipping day where we all wear t-shirts of our fave ship. #Reylo in this case.

#ReyloFanfictionAnthology: Moonlit Reflections in Rapture

The Force. It surrounds and binds Kylo Ren and Rey. It can expose their every weakness. It can conceal their very presence. It can force them to deal with circumstances that occurs in the galaxy. Between the First Order and the Resistance. It can forgive them for their most egregious sins. Most of all, the Force give them a place, and island, of solitude and peace from a tumultuous ocean of star wars and brings them under the moon and its light as a reflection of themselves.
