Go for it! Writing smut is exhilarating! And there can never be enough Rumbelle smut. :-P Also, remember, foreplay is more important than the actual deed. ;-)
I wrote my first smut when I was…. 29 or something. XD Oh gods.
If you feel comfortable writing smut, then by all means, GO FOR IT! (I do like smut.)
If you don’t feel comfortable writing smut, then I won’t think less of you if you won’t write it. I can really enjoy fluff and angst as well. :-)
Also: I love awkward smut. Where they do things wrong and end up laughing about it, or where one accidentally hurts the other for a second and then spends the next hour apologizing for it. :-P Awkward smut is the funniest smut.
Hope your day is going well, Santa! Have you bought a lot of Christmas presents for your family yet?
I have no idea what to write here, just know that I love you guys. Each and every one of you have made both tumblr & my life so much better. So, thank you and I hope y’all have a lovely 2014. I shall leave you with an ancient proverb that best explains my feelings towards y’all, it goes like this: “I’m your biggest fan, I’ll follow you until you love me!

♫ hey! ♪
There’s humor, Jess, and then there’s crossing a line. Same as you don’t make Holocaust jokes, and while this is in no way the same as a Holocaust joke, it’s comes across as humiliating and that’s why people aren’t finding it funny. People can usually tell what’s a joke and what’s considered crossing the line. I’m not one to get bent out of shape over what a lot of people say but that doesn’t mean there are a few things that don’t bother me…and something about this rubs me the wrong way.
Let’s be honest here. Like someone else pointed out, what if someone took two pictures of you, one before you gained weight and one after, and posted it on Facebook with this same kind humor? I don’t think you’d appreciate it.
And I have my preferences too. Hell, I actually love tall, blond, and skinny men, but you wouldn’t know that from my Robert Carlyle fangirling. There’s nothing wrong with having preferences, that’s not really the point of the backlash she’s received.
I’m not calling her a bad fan and I’m not viewing her as a bad person , she may not have intended it to be hurtful and it’s possible there’s a language barrier going on here, but Bobby’s weight has come up again in a negative light too many times in this fandom….to the point where it becomes difficult to see what’s humor and what’s being used as a means to “pick on him”.
Also, I think some are seeing him as “Rumplestiltskin”, and he’s not. That’s a character he plays. He’s Robert Carlyle, he’s a person, and he’s human.
Yes, but the image is also of Mister Gold, twice, and he’s a character. The creator has always made images and manipulations of the characters, not of “Remilie” or anything like that.
He’s played by a human, yes, but this is Mister Gold from season 1 telling mister Gold from season 3 to go to the gym.
If someone were to post such an image of myself online, I’d probably either defend myself like “I gained weight because of stress from work” or just sigh “Gosh I wish I still had a figure like that.” or a combination of both.
I wouldn’t start crying, if that’s what you’re wondering. Nor would I be terribly offended. Perhaps because we’re born with a thick skin here in Belgium. I get the feeling we can take a lot without losing our cool and sense of humor. Then again, as a people, we have very little pride, so there’s little to get upset about. (Except when you insult our fries or chocolate)
(And yes. Even here in Belgium, where all our grandparents survived the second world war, we laugh with Holocaust jokes. After the joke, we usually shake our head and laugh: “Oh, you cruel person, haha.” We don’t say that person should wash his mouth or that he should take it back or apologize. We don’t say the person is a horrible person for saying it. A good sense of humor is a necessity to understand the world, and seeing what people can laugh about (and what they can’t laugh about), tells us a lot about a person, or in some cases about a nation.)
I don’t think the creator crossed the line by making the image. I think some people in their responses to the image are crossing the line by insulting her so cruelly for doing it. I really wonder if some people can’t see that there are different cultures on the other side of the ocean, and that not everybody is raised on the same “high horse”.
When would the creator be crossing the line? If she would send the image to Robert Carlyle saying “LOSE SOME WEIGHT DAMNIT!” but she doesn’t. It’s just meant as an inside joke among fans, like the porn we write is also inside porn among fans, and we don’t send it Robert saying: “JERK OFF ON THIS PLEASE!”
I’m annoyed by the fact that some people don’t see this difference.
Okay, everyone who knows me..knows I have pretty thick skin. And that when I speak my mind, I will do it. They also know I don’t normally find a lot of things offensive. I didn’t insult her, I pointed out the different reasons why he may have gained weight and how it’s kind of enforcing a stereotype that many people don’t find amusing.
I never called her a bad fan or a bad person…… but I’m getting the feeling that those of us who had a problem with it are suddenly the “bad people”.
Winter, I’m not calling you a bad person, actually, you weren’t the one writing things like that. But how would you feel if you were a photoshopper, who made tons of Rumbelle manipulations and other stuff for the Once fandom, and then suddenly people would call you “nasty” and “rude”. I also read terms like “offensive git” and “asshole”.
Is that justified in this case? Can we just start offending people because we disagree with them? Call them nasty things because of it? Instead of opening up a discussion? (You opened up a discussion, but many others didn’t and just immediately insulted the creator.)
And yes, now I’m calling them out on their shit as well. I’m a fan of this photoshopper, just like I’m a fan of Bobby, and when I see them being attacked for no reason, I jump to their defense. I don’t see this picture as an attack though, but many people did. I think it’s due to cultural differences. But it still doesn’t excuse the fact that people are insulting the creator for making it.
