Indefinitely suspended for telling people Helden committed a felony and calling the mods out for doing nothing about that. Avenge me.

Formerly ProTwilightHater and PeterQuill I changed my username to accurately portray what I am inside.
– I’m asexual and h/omoromantic. If you have any questions about asexuality you can ask me if you want! I’ll do my best to answer them.
I love the plot, I love the cinematography, and I love the characters to death, Doc and Marty especially. They are just the most perfect friends and I love how the movie just throws you right in the middle of their friendship no explanation but you just love them instantaneously and they have such great chemistry and such natural dialogue that you never for a second stop believing they’re the best of friends and it’s perfect and has honestly set a precedent for how I write the friendships of my own characters and how I feel good friendships should be portrayed. And for me it’s just really comforting.
So my family was driving up to visit my grandparents in my mom’s old minivan as we always did twice a year, every year. For the record that minivan contained my parents, sister, myself, plus all of our stuff and two dogs, for eleven hours. On this particular trip I was about nine or ten.
Anyhow, as you can imagine it was beyond crowded in that car and everyone was miserable. My sister and I didn’t get along then. We had a DVD player in back of the car but three hours into the drive we had watched everything we had. My parents, not wanting to hear more arguing stopped in a best buy and we decided we’d get a couple things. My dad picked out the first season of The Simpsons and I had picked out Air Buddies. I don’t recall what my sister wanted, we didn’t buy it.
So, here my dad was explaining this show to me but I could vividly recall him and my mom also saying once a few years before “never watch The Simpsons, it’s not appropriate for you” so, remembering this, I refused to let them buy it and threw a temper tantrum in the store because I wanted Air Buddies dangit. My parents bought The Simpsons, I’ve still never seen Air Buddies. I was reluctant to watch it at first (resigning to the backseat with the dogs to try to sleep) but eventually I decided to watch it, so my dad and sister who had been watching it with headphones started over the first episode and I was hooked right away. I now own almost all seasons on DVD and have been rewatching it from the beginning using The Simpsons World (which is magical 10/10 would recommend).
My favorite character is Sideshow Bob. Sandshadow, one of my main OCs got a lot of her base personality from Sideshow Bob. How she uses some of those stolen personality traits is different to how Bob does but you know what they say about imitation.
I used to be banned from watching it, once (when I was 7, mind) my parents walked by the computer room while I was watching Strong Bad emails and they heard Strong Bad saying Holy Crap, one of his catchphrases, and decided that Homestar Runner cartoons were too inappropriate for me so I wasn’t allowed to watch them. I did anyway though. I’d sneak out in the middle of the night and go to the computer room to watch Homestar Runner, then I’d clear the history of any instance of it for safety, then go back to sleep, almost every night for years. I met Matt Chapman, who is half of the Brothers Chaps and does all but one of the voices at a convention in June 2015 and told him that story and he thought it was great. He took it as a point of pride that his content was banned by parents. I also got a picture with him and he signed my bag and drew a little Strong Bad on it, it was neat.
I reread the books at least once a year and I went to see Deathly Hallows I & II at their respective midnight premieres and cried. The end of Harry Potter was the end of an era really. It’s nice that Fantastic Beasts is around to bring me back to the world but nothing will ever quite measure up you know?
And it’s also one of the main reasons I now have a really awful Lego Dimensions addiction. Seriously I’ve spent over $200 on fun packs and level sets and plan to spend more send help.
I’ve been watching these movies since I was a tiny little child (though at the time I didn’t get what was happening at all) and the fandom resurgence since Force Awakens has made me so happy. I have many thoughts on star wars and think up lots of meta if you ever wanna know some stuff ask me (please ask me nobody wants to talk to me about Star Wars)
And that is where Buffy comes in. It had been on my list of things I should watch at some point since I was in middle school and Twilight became a thing. But it wasn’t until the December 31st of 2014 I decided to start it. My friend Jeanette had finished it recently and said I should and since we didn’t know what to watch for New Year’s anyway, we just spent all day and a good chunk of New Year’s Day binging Buffy. And I was hooked. Supernatural is a pale h/omophobic shadow of everything Buffy is. Buffy’s drama is for a point, and in the middle of the drama they can still crack a joke, smile, not be ~dark and gritty~™ because that’s what’s cool at the moment. Women don’t get killed just to further some boring white boy’s narrative. My only real complaint about Buffy is how white it is. Like, there’s very rarely anyone who isn’t white and if they’re there it’s not for long. But still, this is probably my favourite thing Joss Whedon has made and I love it to bits.
Also it has the greatest musical episode of all musical episodes. Once More With Feeling is a perfect 10.
It’s been a bit of long chain of events so I’ll start at the beginning of it all. if I had never read these books, I would never have recomended them to Jeanette. And we would never have gotten close enough to have a reason to talk after I switched schools. She never would have started making videos and I never would have made my own youtube account and started on video editing myself. And without editing I would never have entered into the fandom and later found AlliKatNya who would set me on the path to art schools when I realized film editing was want I wanted to do.
I also would never have joined any of my aforementioned fandoms, or foopets. And without foo I would never have heard of tumblr. Without tumblr I would never have fallen into and out of love with several shows and movies and made the friends I have. I would never have become who I am.
And it all started with some feral cat clans.
PS If you want to RP with me on tumblr I play Marty McFly and my OC Sandshadow, URLs are apparently illegal even though they’re impersonal as heck so just ask me for them.
